Cheney again repeats a "Big Lie"

http://i676.photobucket.com/albums/vv126/kennyrk2/justice.jpg?t=1251725925

Cheney on Fox News
"I think the evidence is overwhelming that the Enhanced Interrogation Techniques were crucial in getting them to cooperate, and that the information they provided did in fact save thousands of lives and let us defeat all further attacks against the United States.
The thing I keep coming back to time and time again, Chris, is the fact that we've gone for eight years without another attack. Now, how do you explain that?"

I'll explain it. Cheney was neck deep in the attacks of 9/11 which have been milked by the state to undermine the constitution and create wars with very little backlash. There's been no need for another false flag. This one worked just fine. For now.

The talk radio apologists/whores are defending Cheney as if their job depends on it. Come to think of it, it does. Limbaugh's fill in today, Mark Davis, had what was most likely a set up caller who questioned those who doubt the official 9/11 story. Davis then gets to go on a very poor debunking rant and basically calls anyone interested in truth names. You can listen to it here if you are a 'pills' member.

Moving around the dial, several other of the radio shills called for the listeners to chime in on torture. All that I heard were for it, do whatever it takes and maybe the 'terrorists' won't get us.

Torture is just a side game that the pervert psychopaths play. Remember the rumors that videos of torture sessions were sent to Cheney for critique? Mass murder and control of whole populations through psyops and the media is where the action is.

Of course Holder's 'investigation' will be nothing more than cover ups and diversions away from the big boys and their big crimes. {see USAG Holder: The man who covered up Waco will now investigate torture?}

There's a cover up in place, but is Cheney a little worried that there could be slip up? Is that why he continues to go to the media and give justifications (lies..) for all he is responsible for? Bush is quiet. If the heat was on, GW could point the finger at Cheney and say "He's behind everything, I was just a stooge" and most everyone would agree.


Allan Roland wrote about Cheney in May and the story is still the same.....
Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld are the key co-conspirators in the 9/11 cover up and all will soon have their day in court when the appalling truth of America's most treasonous act is laid bare for the world to see ~ If Obama allows it to happen:
The noose is slowly closing on Dick Cheney's ultimate deception ~ which is his role in expediting the attacks against America on 9/11 and then utilizing torture to obtain so-called confessions to bolster the questionable 9/11 Commission findings.

Cheney knows the noose is closing and rightfully fears that he is being hung out to dry by Poppy Bush which explains G.W.'s silence while Cheney attempt to justify torture.

As the Daily Kos reported yesterday ~ " Don't be fooled, Dick and Liz aren't fighting for the GOP nor for the Bush administration, they are fighting to keep Dick out of jail. Liz Cheney even, herself, admitted on CNN Anderson Cooper 360 that her father's recent Media Tour was motivated by the fear to be prosecuted... Since Dubya is mum, I won't be surprised that he threw Cheney under the bus a long time ago with the help of his Poppy." {Here}

George W Bush, likely signed off on the 9/11 plot but was purposely kept somewhat out of the loop by Cheney ~ which explains his unconscious My Pet Goat Moment when informed of the attack ~ he was awaiting directions from Cheney.
Dick Cheney was in the bunker on 9-11 directing several “war games” and lied to 9-11 Omission Commission about the timing of his 9/11 activities and Donald Rumsfeld, a close friend of Cheney, was at Pentagon on 9-11 ~ and once slipped and said “when that missile hit the Pentagon”
But there are scores of other possible suspects in this conspiracy as seen in this graphic article ~ 9/11 Who Really Did It {Here}

It certainly appears that those who confessed to master minding the 9/11 attacks were also tortured ~ making their confessions highly suspect if not completely invalid along with the findings of the 9/11 Commission report. {Here}

So the obvious question is ~ Why Is President Obama not pushing the torture investigations ? The obvious answer is that Obama knows that any extensive torture investigation will lead to the so-called 9/11 confessions ( which were obtained under torture ) and open up a Pandora's Box ~ which will virtually implicate the entire Cheney/Bush administration.

However, this is a fire that won't go out as witnessed by John Hatch's May 22nd article in ICH entitled Torture and 9/11.

Excerpt:
" The Iraq invasion was conceived long before 9/11 which was simply used as a pretext for achieving ‘full spectrum domination’ of land, sea, air, space, and cyberspace as outlined in The Project for a New American Century, of which Dick Cheney was a founding member, and President Bush a willing dupe.
The goal was nothing short of attempted world domination, and Iraq and Afghanistan were pawns on a list which included Syria and Iran. PNAC spoke longingly of a ‘new Pearl Harbor event’ as a catalyst to galvanize fearful American opinion to allow the former to have its way, which is exactly what happened after 9/11 (and don’t forget that mailed weaponized Lawrence Livermore anthrax, that ‘bonus terror’ that hurried the Patriot Act unread through Congress and that was since so conveniently blamed on a dead guy)
... An investigation would reveal (indeed we already know) that torture was employed to establish a false link between Saddam and al Qaeda in order to make a preconceived invasion more acceptable to the American people. (Lots of troops in Iraq still think that Saddam was responsible for 9/11, and still exact bloody revenge against innocent people.).. Since everything the people were told turned out to be lies, questions would inevitably arise regarding the ‘catalyst’ itself, the new Pearl Harbor 9/11 event that was so useful to PNAC and the Bush Administration... "
Hatch concludes with this observation ~ " This, I submit is what officials in the Obama Administration fear the most. An investigation of torture would inevitably lead to questions about what 9/11 was really about. We know with certainty that the official version of events is a pack of lies; what if America had to confront the fact that 9/11 really was an inside job? (The recent finding of nano-thermite in WTC dust is just one more compelling argument.)...Such a finding would so undermine Americans’ core beliefs as to have profoundly unpredictable consequences. It would mean that no American is safe from its own terrorist government. It would mean that government is not only corrupt to its very foundations, but also that it is a force of malevolence toward its citizens. It would mean that there is nothing in which to place one’s political faith. It would mean that the same forces that killed 3000 Americans on that day (and many subsequently) still operate behind the scenes in Washington, and ‘change’ is only cosmetic.

It would prove that over the last two terms, democracy was a cruel illusion in America (and some would say since November 22, 1963). It would mean that for the patriotic American citizen, at last there’s nothing left to lose... That's what they're ( Obama Administration ) are rightly afraid of ... That’s why they want to allow the Bush putsch to get away with murder... and avoid looking further into the abyss.. "

But look into the abyss we must ~ for true transformation is never painless and must start with the truth and transparency ~ regardless of the consequences. We have a malignant cancer and it must be fully identified and isolated before it can be treated.It's time for Congress to investigate the massive Iraq-Torture Scandal ~ and for the Department of Justice to prosecute Dick Cheney for creating it. {source}

Bush and Cheney did not testify before the 9/11 commission. They were not under oath and there was no recording made of the session nor a stenographer in the room.
It was their way of making sure that there were no conflicting statements and that no perjury charges could ever come out of it.

The White House fired back at Cheney today. Now there's a small war of words on who's torturing and killing is the most effective.

Make no mistake, Obama, Cheney...they are on the same side. They work for the same bankers, the same corporations and the same foreign interests.

These criminals will try their best to never let one of their own take a fall. It could start a domino effect that leads them all to the gallows.

The Science of 9/11 - Explosive Images

The horizontal reach of the debris is remarkable.

The direction of this dust indicates that the steel has been projected both outwards and upwards.

The question asked there was: is this the concrete? There was of course a lot of concrete in the buildings, about 100 acres, 4 inches thick, in each tower, and it had to go somewhere, as very little can be found in photographs of the base of the towers after collapse. One has to ask why a building falling due to gravity would pulverize so much concrete so finely as to turn most of it into dust.

Independent Investigation Into Pentagon Attack Yields Alarming Information

August 30th, 2009

Witness flight path vs official flight path
Researchers present new eyewitness testimony which they say proves the government's story to be a "monstrous lie"
A three year independent investigation into the September 11, 2001 attack on the Pentagon has yielded new eyewitness evidence which, according to the Southern California-based researchers who conducted the investigation, "conclusively (and unfortunately) establishes as a historical fact that the violence which took place in Arlington that day was not the result of a surprise attack by suicide hijackers, but rather a military black operation involving a carefully planned and skillfully executed deception."


They have compiled the most pertinent testimony into an 81 minute video presentation entitled National Security Alert, which has earned the respect and praise of a growing number of distinguished academics, journalists, writers, entertainers, pilots, and military personnel.

The investigation involved multiple trips to the scene of the crime in Arlington, Virginia, close scrutiny of all official and unofficial data related to the event, and, most importantly, first-person interviews with dozens of eyewitnesses, many of which were conducted and filmed in the exact locations from which they witnessed the plane that allegedly struck the building that day. It was primarily conducted by two men named Craig Ranke and Aldo Marquis, also known as Citizen Investigation Team, or CIT.

"There were a growing number of people in the United States and around the world who were suspicious of the government's story about what had happened at the Pentagon that day," Ranke explains. "The doubts were initially fueled by the dubious damage to the building, which seemed incompatible with a 757 crash, the deliberate lack of transparency by the authorities, and many other issues, but they really intensified after a team of professional pilots (Pilots for 9/11 Truth) analyzed the data obtained from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) via a Freedom of Information Act request in 2006, which was supposedly from the black box of American Airlines Flight 77, and found that the last reported altitude of the plane was far too high to have struck the light poles or the building. This meant that either the plane did not cause the observed physical damage, that the government had released fraudulent data, or both."

"We were tired of the cover-up, but we were also frustrated with the dead-end theorizing that was taking place", says Marquis of the project's genesis. "We knew that the only way we were ever going to know what had really happened was if we actually went to the area, knocked on doors, and interviewed everyday people about what they saw."

When these eyewitness accounts are aggregated, they paint a very disturbing picture, say the researchers.

"To put it as concisely as possible, the plane had to have flown on a very specific flight path in the final seconds before it reached the Pentagon in order to have caused the observed damage, starting with the light poles that were photographed on the ground and ending with the directional damage to the building itself which was outlined in detail by the American Society of Civil Engineers," explains Ranke. "The government claims the plane flew on this flight path and hit the building. The eyewitnesses in all of the most critical vantage points, on the other hand, independently, unanimously, and unequivocally report a drastically different flight path, proving that the plane absolutely could not have hit the light poles or the building. It is a non-controversial scientific fact that a strike from this trajectory would have caused a very different damage path."

It wasn't just witnesses who watched the plane approach the building that the team spoke with, however.

"We've also published our interview with a Pentagon police officer who saw the plane flying away from the Pentagon immediately after the explosion", says Marquis. "We already knew that the plane could not have hit based on the testimony of the witnesses on the other side of the building who watched it approach, but it was still vindicating to get this kind of confirmation."

A 2006 Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll found that "More than a third of the American public suspects that federal officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or took no action to stop them so the United States could go to war in the Middle East." Nevertheless, Ranke and Marquis acknowledge it is still quite controversial to claim, as they do, that "criminal elements within the U.S. government" were complicit in the attacks.

"If you are skeptical of (or even incensed by) this statement we do not blame you," reads a note on the front page of their website, CitizenInvestigationTeam.com. "We are not asking you to take our word for it, nor do we want you to do that. We want you to view the evidence and see with your own eyes that this is the case. We want you to hear it directly from the eyewitnesses who were there, just as we did."

Many people seem to be taking them up on this offer. Their video has already received almost 70,000 views online since it was first posted to their website a few weeks ago with only a grass roots promotional effort behind it.

Perhaps more notable than the size of the audience, however, is the caliber of some of the people in it. A newly-published compendium of endorsements on the CitizenInvestigationTeam.com website includes praise from a wide array of distinguished and well-respected Americans.

Emmy-award winning actor and former president of The Screen actors Guild, Ed Asner, calls the film a "reasoned, and methodical look at witness testimony the day the Pentagon was attacked on Sept. 11th".

Prolific non-ficition author Dr. Peter Dale Scott, Professor Emeritus of the University of California, Berkeley affirms that the film "successfully rebuts the official account of Flight 77's flight path on 9/11 as it approached the Pentagon".

"If you accept the placement of the plane as independently and unanimously reported by the witnesses presented in CIT's video National Security Alert, science proves that it did not cause the physical damage at the Pentagon on 9/11/2001", says FAA certified pilot Robert Balsamo.

Dr. David Ray Griffin, author of The New Pearl Harbor Revisited: 9/11, the Cover-Up, and the Exposé and many other titles, says he is "pleased to be able to recommend this important film with enthusiasm", while scholar, author, and radio host Dr. Kevin Barrett says that the film proves "that the official version of the attack on the Pentagon is false, and that the attack must have been a deceptive military operation, not the kamakaze crash of a hijacked commercial jet."

Scott McKinsey, an award-winning network television director, says "The DVD offers no theorizing or speculation; only corroborated eyewitness evidence contradicting the official flight data to support an overwhelming argument that a plane did not slam into the Pentagon on 9/11".

Architect Richard Gage, AIA, founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth.org), a coalition of over 700 professional architects and engineers calling for a new independent investigation of the destruction of the three skyscrapers in New York on 9/11 (the third was World Trade Center 7), calls the film "long overdue, but worth waiting for" and says that it "deserves serious attention".

Retired Navy Commander and aviator James R. Compton calls National Security Alert "the best reporting I've seen in a long, long time" and "a must see for every citizen in our country".

"Government and media figures who dare ignore evidence this conclusive do so at their own peril", warns Lt. Col. Shelton Lankford, a retired Marine pilot who has flown 303 combat missions.

US Soldiers Find Themselves Being Terrorists in Afghanistan

As the US continues to step up war efforts in Afghanistan, the number of American soldiers refusing deployment to war zones is also increasing. Author and Independent Journalist Dahr Jamail tells RT that U.S. soldiers in combat zones find themselves being terrorists.

Only a few seem to care.

9/11...Day of Service?


After almost 8 years of scaremongering and wars based on the lies of 'who did 9/11,' we now have an attempt to morph September 11 into a faux day of service.

Service for whom?

For those who wish to continue the cover-up and save their own skins?

The greatest service would be to bring justice not only to the victims of  9/11 but for those who have died in vain for the profiteers of war. Wars that have nothing to do with 9/11 except as the catalyst for American and Israeli imperialism and the bankers and the war machine money schemes.

Left/right, Obama/Bush...there's not a difference when it comes to diverting the truth. All are guilty of murder by association by trying to perpetuate the 'official' story.

The only day of service that would mean anything would be the day that those within our own corrupt government, past and present, and their allies responsible for the crimes of 9/11 are imprisoned or executed. 

We won't forget and we won't observe this September 11th as a diversionary 'day of service' just because a cabal of criminals and their useful idiots want us to.
The truth of 9/11 is the only 'service' worth considering.

The Most Dangerous Man in the World?

http://www.reuters.com/resources/r/?m=02&d=20090827&t=2&i=11378497&w=450&r=2009-08-27T140820Z_01_BTRE57Q13A300_RTROPTP_0_ISRAEL-GERMANY

Is this man the biggest threat to start another war that will cause more of our American 'volunteer' soldier children to die? Not to mention a multitude of civilian causalities in the lands of our "enemies." He will need help and it looks like he is pushing for a coalition of zionist nation states to assist him.
Israel's Netanyahu given Holocaust plans in Berlin

BERLIN (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on a visit to Germany on Thursday that one lesson Israel drew from the Holocaust was that threats to its existence could not go unchallenged and must be "nipped in the bud".

"We cannot allow evil to prepare the mass death of innocents. The most important thing to do is to nip it in the bud," said Netanyahu, alluding to past threats by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to wipe Israel off the map. {be sure to read the rest of this...}

If it wasn't so serious, I could get a few laughs from yahoo's BS talk.
OK, fun time is over. To be drawn into a war with Iran will drive more nails into America's coffin.

xymphora's post today sums up what what kind of county we are dealing with...
Of course, there is 'no evidence' for the New Blood Libel, as the only evidence for it is the testimony of Palestinians. Unfortunately, Palestinians, being sub-human - like blacks and women used to be - aren't qualified to give evidence, and no matter how many say the same thing, the statement of one Jew - not just a human being, but a Supreme Human Being - is enough to make the whole issue a matter of anti-Semitic group defamation. This despite the fact that in the whole context of what Jews do to Palestinians on a daily basis, and with great joy and gusto, stealing organs is an almost inconsequential Evil.

Will Obama and Netanyahu partner in even more death that what they already have going on?

Nashville Right Wing Radio Shill Gets TV News Story Pulled?

http://images.ibsys.com/2009/0827//20580983_200X150.jpg Rehov...mossad asset?

An Israel first, so called Christian, Nashville talk radio host promoted anti-Islamic 'documentaries' from a jewish filmmaker that were shown last night at the Belcourt Theater. A local NBC affiliate dared to air a short feature on the story that was fairly balanced and to the point without interjecting an opinion. Well, that didn't sit well with the radio shill who has often proposed the bombing of Iran and indiscriminate killing of Arabs while continuously praising the 'chosen ones' and the land that 'belongs' to them. He had a little tirade this morning saying he would never watch Channel 4 news again and wondered if there was any truth in any of their news reporting.

Channel 4 was obviously afraid that this charlatan radio mouthpiece for Israeli interests might affect their ratings and so pulled the story from their website. They may have even gotten a few calls from the bobble head talk radio listeners. See here where the story once was with the video. Maybe none of us should watch Channel 4 for rolling over to the right wing propagandists.

MSNBC picked up the story and reprinted it on their site where at this moment it still remains.
Belcourt Shows Controversial Religious Films

French Filmmaker Details Persecution of Jews, Christians By Muslims

Reported By Nancy Amons
WSMV-TV

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Uniformed police officers stood outside the Belcourt Theatre in Hillsboro Village on Wednesday night as two controversial religious documentaries were aired for the public.

Even though the documentaries were not advertised on the outside marquee, and there were no advertisements in papers, there was still a large line that stretched down the street and around the corner to see the films.

The screening included two documentaries concerning the persecution of Christians and Jews by Muslims, both films by French-Jewish filmmaker Pierre Rehov.

"Very few people know that in 1948, 1 million Jews were expelled from the Muslim world, from Arab countries. These million Jews lost everything they had. I happened to be one of them because my entire family was expelled from Algeria," said Rehov.

The Belcourt is not normally patrolled by uniformed officers, but the event was sponsored by the local chapter of Act for America, a controversial group known for its anti-Islamic views.

"Tonight's film is called 'First Comes Saturday, Then Comes Sunday.' That's an expression that means a lot in the Muslim world. It means first destroy Israel, the little Satan, then America, the great Satan," said Michael DelGiorno of Act for America.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations in Washington, D.C., calls Act for America an extremist group because of what its founder teaches.

Ibrahim Hooper with the Council on American-Islamic Relations said Act for America fosters a climate of intolerance. He said the group does not think Muslims should be able to seek public office and cannot serve loyally in the U.S. military.

Rehov has previously been on a number of television networks. He is well-known for a documentary on the psychopathology of suicide bombers.

Later this year, he will release a film titled "The Path to Darkness" in which his crews filmed the step-by-step brainwashing of a suicide terrorist.


Anti-Islamic films are apparently OK but I wonder what would happen if the Belcourt Theater, a non-profit venue, showed some anti-Israel or anti-jew films. How about an al-Nakba documentary or maybe The Ringworm Children? Being a non-profit organization it would only be fair if they did so. But that might not sit well with their jewish backers.

Just trying to make a living

Some estimates are that in this county the unemployment/underemployment rate is over 25%. That leads some folks to go outside the law in order to survive.

The crime rate here is up and the police should be using their time to catch the real criminals. Until we address the legalization of marijuana, these photos ops and local news features will continue with no noticeable improvement in the lives of the county population.

As usual, the Nashville media is hyping the value of this crop at $2 million. Wow! Become a millionaire with only a basement, some equipment and a few seeds. Just don't get caught.

Sophisticated hydroponic marijuana operation found
A local husband and wife team were arrested Tuesday when a sophisticated hydroponic marijuana operation worth over a million dollars was found in the Liberty area of Cannon County.

Sheriff Billy Nichols along with the Cannon County Sheriff’s Department cooperated with the TBI in arresting the couple and confiscating the equipment, marijuana and 273 marijuana plants.

The TBI came to the Cannon County Sheriff’s Department stating they had an active marijuana drug case against Marilyn Greene, AKA Marilyn Campbell and requested assistance to locate the home on Bony Ridge Road and acquire a consent to search.

When officers arrived at the home, Gerry Lynn Campbell met officers at the door and after some conversation, produced a small amount of marijuana stating it was for personal use.

However, Detective Charlie Wilder noticed several stems that had been stripped of marijuana in the kitchen area. After that discovery, officers asked and were given permission to search the rest of the home and property.

Found in the bedroom was an ashtray with several marijuana roaches, glass pipe and rolling papers. In another room was four box trays with marijuana laid out to dry. In the kitchen was a set of digital scales along with a plastic bucket that contained a large amount of processed marijuana buds.

As the group were logging the items and photographing them, Deputy Fann noticed a trap door under a rug in the kitchen. He raised the door to reveal a set of steps leading under the house to the basement where they found a sophisticated hydroponic marijuana operation with 273 plants in various stages of growth.

The room had all the lights and starters, water pumps and a reservoir, fertilizers, written instructions and other paraphernalia needed to carry out the operation. There were three hydroponic tables in the basement, two were active and the other was ready to be set up. A freezer contained a large bag of processed marijuana.

Officers disassembled the operation and transported it to the evidence storage facility. The marijuana was bagged and transported to the TBI Crime Lab. {More}

The Dynasty Finally Ends

It's too bad Ted could not have actually made some of the changes that his brothers may have wanted. Dismantling the CIA, ending the Federal Reserve, halting illegal wars, bringing his brother's killers to justice and maybe even putting a stop to Israel's influence on US policy.

But that's why he got to live as long as he did.

Swine Flu - Fearmongering on a Daily Basis... for Profit

http://www.formerfatguy.com/sunrider-foods/blog/swine-flu/swine-flu.jpg

Swine flu could infect up to half of the U.S.
Epidemic could kill 30,000 to 90,000

The global flu pandemic expected to return to the United States this fall is likely to infect as much as half of the population, flooding hospitals with nearly 2 million patients and causing 30,000 to 90,000 deaths, according to the first official prediction of the scope of the coming epidemic.

The report, released Monday by the White House, was prepared by the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology beginning in late June at President Barack Obama's request. It concludes that the expected resurgence of the new form of H1N1 flu, also known as swine flu, "poses a serious health threat to the United States." {more}

Drugmakers race to offer H1N1 vaccines to market
MORE than two dozen pharmaceutical companies are racing against the clock to test, produce and ship more than a billion doses of H1N1 flu vaccines to anxious populations worldwide bracing for a second wave of infection.

But even if things proceed smoothly, delivery will not keep up with demand as the northern hemisphere enters the autumn and winter flu season, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has warned.

"We know that supplies will be extremely limited for some months to come," WHO chief Margaret Chan said on Friday.

Initial estimates that big pharma could crank out 94 million doses a week beginning in October have been slashed by 50 to 75 per cent due to poorer than expected yields from the so-called "seed virus" strains developed by WHO-approved laboratories.

According to the global health authority, 25 drug companies have announced their intention to make the vaccines.

Five of those firms will account for more than 80 per cent of production: Sanofi-Pasteur in France, AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) in Britain, Baxter in the United States, and the Swiss group Novartis. {more}

Boycott 'em all

http://hoboken411.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/hoboken-edgewater-whole-foods-beef-recall-august-2008.jpg trouble in organic paradise?

Lots of talk and chatter about boycotting Whole Foods, the walmart of natural food retail.

Boycotting them is self-evident for those of us who grew up watching the organic and natural food movement evolve. That evolution into a corporate monopoly for the educated but elitist consumer only in high income neighborhoods is not exactly what we had hoped for. Our hope was for a local based food supply with regional distributors supplementing the small business retail stores.

Putting that aside, this 'whole' thing is nothing but another diversion to keep us from thinking and acting on some more important issues like war...and...

A boycott involving tens of thousands against a company because of the political meanderings of the CEO? Just think of what a boycott against some major criminals might do?

http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/nashville/images/wholebodyfront2.jpg

I boycott Whole Foods for a couple of reasons.

1st, unless you are well off, you really can't afford to shop there. It's elitist and in middle Tennessee, the stores are only located in the elitist neighborhoods.

2nd, being the capitalist millionaire that John Mackey is, he bought out his competition, Wild Oats, and except for a few small out of the way natural food stores, has close to a monopoly in Nashville.

They are a Fortune 500 company, a giant corporation with large mark ups and buyers that squeeze the suppliers.

It's a far cry from the early to late 70's when there were several small natural food stores in many of the surrounding towns. All of them ended up not making a living as there weren't enough enlightened customers.
I worked for a couple of them. The Good Earth in Woodbury was opened by the previous owners of the first natural food store in Nashville, the Sunshine Grocery. They had sold out there after a year for lack of income and customers in 1973, but not because of the quality of the endeavor. They were ahead of their time and it takes time for the rest of the world to catch up.

Trying again with a co-op concept in Woodbury around 1976, there just was not enough participants and after a couple of years with a shortage of rent money and cash flow, the business folded.

I worked next at the Readyville Mill and the mill store. Same story, not enough customers.

Both places were incredible. Local produce in season, homemade bread, stone ground wheat and corn, raw cow and goat milk, fresh country eggs and a variety of US produced foods supplied by a Florida distributor. Sometimes a little homemade wine and moonshine and... We talked the talk, learned a lot and shared many good times.

Now after over 30 years, the customers with money are there, for now, but the small time aspect is gone.

As always, when mega-corporations take over from the little guy, the prices go through the roof and that personal touch is lost.

We should boycott as many of the major corporations as we can, all of the walmarts of the various niche markets and try to bring back a few local jobs. The economy is forcing us to anyway.

The emergence of local farmers markets gives us some hope. I talked to one guy who has sold over $1,200 of produce out of his garden so far this season.

Who needs Whole Foods?

Murdoch's National Geographic Channel's Pathetic Attempt to Continue the 9/11 Cover-up

"Not a controlled demolition...our simulations prove it!"...NatGeo

911: Science and Conspiracy, is set to air next Monday, Aug. 31.
Money will buy a lot of lies. Always has, always will.


Once upon a time another News Corporation station, Fox News, actually had some investigative reporting that could have blown the lid off of who was responsible for the 9/11 attacks if there had been a follow up. Someone close to the crime decided that any truth about the event is dangerous and made the call to 'pull it.'


The deaths continue to this day...Hundreds of 9/11 first responders die of cancer

TVA works for the war machine

Can TVA be trusted to maintain safety with radioactive nuclear bomb making gas when they can't even contain coal ash?

No matter where we turn, we can't escape the militarism that is America's biggest business.
Even paying that electric bill contributes.

The Tennessee Valley Authority's Watts Bar Nuclear Plant in East Tennessee produces tritium for the U.S. nuclear arms program.

TVA's role in nuclear defense program to grow

Plant near Chattanooga to make gas for warheads

By Anne Paine • The Tennessean • August 24, 2009
The United States maintains a hardline policy opposing countries' use of civilian nuclear reactors to produce material for weapons, including Iran and North Korea.

But that is what the U.S. Department of Energy has been doing at the Tennessee Valley Authority's Watts Bar reactor in East Tennessee since 2003, and now the department has signaled its intention to start additional production of tritium at TVA's Sequoyah plant, near Chattanooga.

Tritium, which is a radioactive form of hydrogen, is needed to boost the explosive power of nuclear warheads. The DOE's 2010 budget proposal includes plans to make tritium at the two Sequoyah reactors, and TVA spokesman Terry Johnson confirmed that the electricity-generating plant is being prepared for the production of the weapons material.

"It's part of national defense needs, and TVA is participating in that," Johnson said. "We feel it's a saving overall for the nation as a whole." He said he doesn't expect production to start before at least 2012.

Critics say, in addition to posing environmental and safety concerns, the move is undermining U.S. policy and the international nuclear nonproliferation treaty that it is a party to.

"The expansion of and continued use of these facilities contradicts our message elsewhere around the world that civilian-power-generating reactors should not be used for military purposes," said Daryl Kimball, executive director of the Washington-based Arms Control Association, which was established in 1971 to monitor and encourage arms control.

"This has been a core principle of the United States and our allies for more than four decades."

Jennifer Wagner, a spokeswoman for DOE's National Nuclear Safety Administration, said, "Our justification is obviously that our core mission is to maintain the safety and reliability of our stockpile so we have an effective deterrent."

She referred to a speech by President Barack Obama in Prague earlier this year in which he said the goal was to reduce the overall number of nuclear weapons but to maintain an arsenal sufficient to discourage other countries from nuclear arms use.

Tritium production at Watts Bar means higher radiation doses for those at the nuclear plant and within a 50-mile radius, but it's an insignificant amount, according to an Environmental Impact Statement on the project that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approved in 2000.

Since production began at Watts Bar, tritium has been found in groundwater on the site, and higher levels than expected have shown up in the cooling water."It hasn't gone above regulated limits," Johnson said. "The tritium that does not stay in the rods is still within the limits the plant is licensed for."

The Invention of the Jewish People - Now available in English

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41JW4CEi9FL._SL500_AA240_.jpg

A leading Israeli historian shatters the national myth of the Jewish exodus from the promised land.
“Israel’s Declaration of Independence states that the Jewish people arose in the Land of Israel and was exiled from its homeland. Every Israeli schoolchild is taught that this happened during the period of Roman rule, in 70 CE. The nation remained loyal to its land, to which it began to return after two millennia of exile. Wrong, says the historian Shlomo Sand, in one of the most fascinating and challenging books published here in a long time. There never was a Jewish people, only a Jewish religion, and the exile also never happened—hence there was no return.”—Tom Segev, Ha’aretz
All modern nation states have a story of their origins, passed down through both official and popular culture, and yet few of these accounts have proved as divisive and influential as the Israeli national myth. The well-known tale of Jewish exile at the hands of the Romans during the first century AD, and the assertion of both cultural and racial continuity through to the Jewish people of the present day, resonates far beyond Israel’s borders. Despite its use as a justification for Jewish settlement in Palestine and the project of a Greater Israel, there have been few scholarly investigations into the historical accuracy of the story as a whole.

In this bold and ambitious new book, Shlomo Sand shows that the Israeli national myth has its origins in the nineteenth century, rather than in biblical times—when Jewish historians, like scholars in many other cultures, reconstituted an imagined people in order to model a future nation. Sand forensically dissects the official story—and demonstrates the construction of a nationalist myth and the collective mystification that this requires.

A bestseller in Israel and France, Shlomo Sand’s book has sparked a widespread and lively debate. Should the Jewish people regard themselves as genetically distinct and identifiable across the millennia—or should that doctrine now be left behind and if the myth of the “Jewish state” is dismantled, could this open a path toward a more inclusive Israeli state, content within its borders? .

About the Author

Shlomo Sand studied history at the University of Tel Aviv and at the École des hautes études en sciences sociales, in Paris. He currently teaches contemporary history at the University of Tel Aviv. His other books include L’Illusion du politique: Georges Sorel et le débat intellectuel 1900, Georges Sorel en son temps, Le XXe siècle à l'écran and Les Mots et la Terre: Les Intellectuels en Israël.

How much freedom can one man stand?

We find ourselves awash in new freedoms. There are those aforementioned 17 million folks freed from work. And at least 45 million people are free from the onus of healthcare and all those time consuming trips to the doctor or dentist. More than 60 million folks are freed from the rigors of financial planning because they now have zero net worth, thanks to the mortgage bust. More than a million are free from even having to decide when to eat, shower, take a crap or sleep -- because they are in the joint doing time, mostly for parole violations of some previous offense.

I've been around 62 years and I'm here to tell you that I've never seen such a deluge of freedom in my entire life. That's the foot stompin' truth. And I don't doubt for one minute that there aren't more freedoms coming down the pike. I can feel 'em in these old bones. I just might need a bump of Old Granddad to brace myself for the next one. Lordy, lordy, I just might. {more - Joe Bageant}


The Real REASON for Gun Ownership

The anti-gunners, certain that the role of government is to grant privileges and dictate behavior, shout that citizens have no reason to be “allowed” to own assault rifles, which have “no legitimate sporting use.” The Constitution, though, says nothing about “a well-regulated sporting club” being necessary. We do not own handguns, assault rifles, shotguns, and other powerful weapons because we are hunters or plinkers or collectors. We do not even own guns because the Constitution “allows” us to. The Constitution does not “grant” rights. It recognizes rights already and irrevocably held forever by the people themselves (individuals), and forbids government from trampling on them. We have a right to keep and bear arms regardless of whether the Second Amendment exists or not! All Article Two guarantees is that we shouldn’t have to defend that right against “our” federal government. We’ve seen that simple guarantee erode, though, haven’t we?

The real reason for gun ownership is to protect the individual from the State, whether it be an invading State from accross the seas or a domestic State grown tyrannical and oppressive. The goal of total, repressive confiscation is clear in the subtle, shifting arguments of the anti-gun forces. When handguns were the target, they clamored prohibition because handguns were not militia-type weapons protected by the Second Amendment. Now they cry for assault rifle bans because “mere citizens” have no business possessing “military-style” weapons! {more - Incog Man}


The US War against Iraq: The Destruction of a Civilization

The US seven-year war and occupation of Iraq is driven by several major political forces and informed by a variety of imperial interests. However these interests do not in themselves explain the depth and scope of the sustained, massive and continuing destruction of an entire society and its reduction to a permanent state of war. The range of political forces contributing to the making of the war and the subsequent US occupation include the following (in order of importance):

The most important political force was also the least openly discussed. The Zionist Power Configuration (ZPC), which includes the prominent role of long-time, hard-line unconditional Jewish supporters of the State of Israel appointed to top positions in the Bush Pentagon (Douglas Feith and Paul Wolfowitz ), key operative in the Office of the Vice President (Irving (Scooter) Libby), the Treasury Department (Stuart Levey), the National Security Council (Elliot Abrams) and a phalanx of consultants, Presidential speechwriters (David Frum), secondary officials and policy advisers to the State Department. These committed Zionists ‘insiders’ were buttressed by thousands of full-time Israel-First functionaries in the 51 major American Jewish organizations, which form the President of the Major American Jewish Organizations (PMAJO). They openly stated that their top priority was to advance Israel’s agenda, which, in this case, was a US war against Iraq to overthrow Saddam Hussein, occupy the country, physically divide Iraq, destroy its military and industrial capability and impose a pro-Israel/pro-US puppet regime. If Iraq were ethnically cleansed and divided, as advocated by the ultra-right, Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and the ‘Liberal’ President Emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations and militarist-Zionist, Leslie Gelb, there would be more than several ‘client regimes’. {more - James Petras via The Peoples Voice}


Lockerbie justice, in part

If the families of the victims are angry that an inn0cent man has been set free, they should be angry at the prosecutors and police, doing the dirty work to protect the CIA. By avoiding proceedings that would show that the trial was a sham, the authorities have cleverly left the blame with Libya and Megrahi, and protected the real culprits. Instead of playing along with the lying Official Story, the families of the victims should be demanding an official examination of the travesty of a trial. Megrahi and Libya were framed.

Could soldiers be the last stand against war? - "The Will to Resist"

"Enough already" says war shill Charles Gibson about Cindy Sheehan's continued anti-war presence.
The so called anti-war left have betrayed the cause and are mostly silent since their master's election.
Left and right argue over everything but war. It's their common 'killing ground.'

So is there any hope at all for an public uprising against the illegal, immoral wars for profit?

Dahr Jamail says it could be building up within the military. Perhaps it's a slim chance but maybe we should listen to those who have been there and aren't afraid to speak out.

"Dissent starts as simple as saying 'this is bullshit. Why am I risking my life?' "

"The Will to Resist"

BY JON LETMAN
Six months into Barack Obama's presidency, the U.S. public's display of antiwar sentiment has faded to barely a whisper.

Despite Obama's vow to withdraw all combat forces from Iraq before September 2011, he plans to leave up to 50,000 troops in "training and advisory" roles. Meanwhile, nearly 130,000 troops remain in that country and more than 50,000 U.S. soldiers occupy Afghanistan, with up to an additional 18,000 approved for deployment this year.

So where is the resistance?

In independent journalist Dahr Jamail's "The Will to Resist: Soldiers who refuse to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan" (Haymarket Books), Jamail profiles what may ultimately prove to be the United States' most effective anti-war movement: the soldiers themselves.

During the early years of the Iraq war, Jamail traveled to Iraq alone and reported as an unembedded freelance journalist. Over four visits, Jamail documented the war's effects on Iraqi civilians in "Beyond the Green Zone" (2007).

Although he is a fierce critic of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and of the U.S. mainstream media which he says served as a "cheerleader" for war, Jamail admits he was raised to admire the military. However, after covering the war from Iraq between 2003 and 2005, Jamail was enraged by what he calls "the heedless and deliberate devastation [he] saw [the U.S. military] wreak upon the people of Iraq."

Back in the U.S., traveling the country speaking out against the war, Jamail met scores of soldiers who had served in Iraq and Afghanistan and found that he shared with them a "familiar anguish" which drove him to further explore their motivations as soldiers. In doing so he opens the door to a growing subculture of internal dissent that is increasingly bubbling up and spilling over the edge of an otherwise ultra-disciplined, highly-controlled military society.

"The soldiers I spoke with while working on this book are some of the most ardent anti-war activists I have ever met," Jamail told IPS. "Having experienced the war firsthand, this should not come as a surprise."

In "The Will to Resist", Jamail profiles individual acts of resistance that he envisions as the possible seeds of a broader anti-war movement. The book is filled with stories of soldiers who refuse missions deemed "suicidal", go AWOL, flee abroad, refuse to carry a loaded weapon, even arranging to be shot in the leg - and those who in a final act of desperation commit suicide.

Soldiers who refuse to deploy or follow orders risk court-martial, prison time, dishonorable discharge and loss of veteran's medical benefits, yet an increasing number of active duty soldiers and veterans are willing to do so.

Rather than accept a mission almost certain to bring death, some troops simply refuse to follow orders. Jamail describes soldiers in Iraq on "search and avoid" missions who grew adept at giving the appearance of going out on patrol when, in fact, they were lying low, catching up on sleep and trying to avoid being killed.

Jamail quotes one Marine who served in Iraq and Afghanistan as saying, "Dissent starts as simple as saying 'this is bullshit. Why am I risking my life?'"

Soldiers tell Jamail that incidents of refusing orders are unremarkable and "pretty widespread," to which he responds, "It is also understandable why the military does not want more soldiers or the public to know about them."

"Army Specialist Victor Agosto, who served a year in Iraq, has recently publicly refused orders to deploy to Afghanistan," Jamail told IPS, "and the Army, due to the threat of more soldiers and the broader public learning of this, backed away from giving Agosto the harshest court-martial possible, to one of the lightest."

Jamail also dedicates two chapters to soldiers who stand up to systemic misogyny and homophobia in the military. Extensive interviews with female soldiers detail a pervasive culture of institutionalized "command rape," harassment, abuse and assault which, in a number of high-profile cases (and many more unknown) end in ostracism, coercion, demotion, suicide and murder.

Citing studies from professional medical journals that offer a grim assessment of sexual intimidation and abuse within the U.S. military, Jamail writes, "According to the group Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network, one in six women in the United States will be a victim of sexual assault in her lifetime. In the military, at least two in five will. In either case, at least 60 percent of the cases go unreported."

As Jamail recounts horrific cases of violence toward women in the military, he notes the irony of frequent claims that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are "liberating" women of those Muslim countries.

Like female soldiers, gay and lesbian service men and women are targeted for harassment and abuse. Jamail meets soldiers who, under the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy, must conceal their true identity, falsely posing as straight while battling internal conflicts about their own roles in the military.

In the blunt language of the soldiers, Jamail describes the military experience as a process of dehumanization. "The primary objective appeared to be to mistreat and dehumanize your guys [fellow soldiers]," one Marine says. "I could not do it, not to my men and not to those people. I like the Iraqis, I like the Afghanis. Why were we treating them like shit?...That is when I really started questioning what the hell was going on."

For many soldiers however, the pain of war is simply too much to bear and so they choose their own final discharge: suicide. In an emotionally exhausting chapter, Jamail cites statistics from the Army Suicide Event Report which states active duty military suicides have risen to their highest rates since the Army started tracking self-inflicted deaths in 1980, and the numbers are growing.

Documenting the phenomenon of "suicide by cop," Jamail quotes from a Post Traumatic Distress Syndrome (PTSD)-wracked veteran's pre-"suicide" internet article in which he wrote, "...We come home from war trying to put our lives back together but some cannot stand the memories and decide that death is better. We kill ourselves because we are so haunted by seeing children killed and whole families wiped out."

Contemplating the long-term implications of the more than 1.8 million military personnel who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, Jamail points out that the United States, for many years to come, will be faced with caring for tens of thousands of veterans whose lives are permanently marred by grave physical and traumatic brain injuries, psychological scars, PTSD, and a host of associated problems ranging from divorce and substance abuse to domestic violence, homelessness and run-ins with the law.

Other soldiers manage to cope somehow and, perhaps in a sense, recover. Following their discharge, some veterans profiled by Jamail seek to make peace with themselves by educating others about the realities they experienced in war.

The most successful and constructive of military efforts to resist war are made by those who turn their experiences into teaching tools and therapeutic exercises like music, video, theater, painting, books, blogs, photographic and art exhibitions, performance art and even making paper out of old military uniforms.

In a chapter titled 'Cyber Resistance,' Jamail contends the Internet "is probably the first time that we have available to us an inexpensive and extremely inclusive means to communicate and thereby advocate sustained resistance to unjust military action, at an international scale without losing any gestation time."

Websites like YouTube, Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, Blogspot and countless alternative news sources have given soldiers and veterans both a voice and the means to connect with those Jamail calls "fence-sitters, members of the silent majority and well-intentioned but resource-less individuals to participate in the promise of a historical transformation."

"While we don't have an organized GI resistance movement today that is anywhere close to that which helped end the Vietnam war," Jamail said, "the seeds for one are there, and they are continuing to sprout amidst a soil that is becoming all the more fertile by the escalation of troops in Afghanistan, the lack of withdrawal in Iraq, and an increasingly over-stretched military."
