Is WikiLeaks a CIA/Mossad Front?



WikiLeaks is getting a lot of publicity in anticipation of  a classified film Wikileaks claims to have in its possession that shows evidence of a US massacre of civilians. Images have power – think Abu Ghraib, think Mi Lai – and efforts at "perception management" by the department of defence will be much complicated by documentary evidence that leaves little to interpretation or "perception" of a human rights crime committed by US forces. Wikileaks plans to show the video at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on 5 April.

 But Wayne Madsen is reporting that WikiLeaks may well be a CIA/Mossad operation.

Then again maybe Madsen is an operative.

Who can you trust?

Too many questions, not enough answers.


From Arthur Zbygniew .....
CIA, Mossad and Soros behind Wikileaks 

Suspicions abound that Wikileaks is part of U.S. cyber-warfare operations

WMR has learned from Asian intelligence sources that there is a strong belief in some Asian countries, particularly China and Thailand, that the website Wikileaks, which purports to publish classified and sensitive documents while guaranteeing anonymity to the providers, is linked to U.S. cyber-warfare and computer espionage operations, as well as to Mossad's own cyber-warfare activities.

Wikileaks claims to have decrypted video footage of a U.S. Predator air strike on civilians in Afghanistan and that covert U.S. State Department agents followed Wikileaks's editor from Iceland to Norway in a surveillance operation conducted jointly by the United States and Iceland. Iceland's financially-strapped government recently announced a policy of becoming a haven for websites that fear political oppression and censorship in their home countries. However, in the case of Wikileaks, countries like China and Thailand are suspicious of the websites' actual "ownership."

Wikileaks says it intends to show its video at an April 5 press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC but that its presenters may be detained or arrested before that time. WMR's sources believe the Wikileaks "militancy" in the face of supposed surveillance appears fake.

Our Asian intelligence sources report the following: "Wikileaks is running a disinformation campaign, crying persecution by U.S. intelligence- when it is U.S. intelligence itself. Its [Wikileaks'] activities in Iceland are totally suspect." Wikileaks claims it is the victim of a new COINTELPRO [Counter Intelligence Program] operation directed by the Pentagon and various U.S. intelligence agencies. WMR's sources believe that it is Wikileaks that is part and parcel of a cyber-COINTELPRO campaign, such as that proposed by President Obama's "information czar," Dr. Cass Sunstein.

In January 2007, John Young, who runs cryptome.org, a site that publishes a wealth of sensitive and classified information, left Wikileaks, claiming the operation was a CIA front. Young also published some 150 email messages sent by Wikileaks activists on cryptome. They include a disparaging comment about this editor by Wikileaks co-founder Dr. Julian Assange of Australia. Assange lists as one of his professions "hacker." His German co-founder of Wikileaks uses a pseudonym, "Daniel Schmitt."

Wikileaks claims it is "a multi-jurisdictional organization to protect internal dissidents, whistleblowers, journalists and bloggers who face legal or other threats related to publishing" [whose] primary interest is in exposing oppressive regimes in Asia, the former Soviet bloc, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, but we are of assistance to people of all nations who wish to reveal unethical behavior in their governments and corporations. We aim for maximum political impact. We have received over 1.2 million documents so far from dissident communities and anonymous sources."

In China, Wikileaks is suspected of having Mossad connections. It is pointed out that its first "leak" was from an Al Shabbab "insider" in Somalia. Al Shabbab is the Muslim insurgent group that the neocons have linked to "Al Qaeda."

Asian intelligence sources also point out that Assange's "PhD" is from Moffett University, an on-line diploma mill and that while he is said to hail from Nairobi, Kenya, he actually in from Australia where his exploits have included computer hacking and software piracy. 

WMR has confirmed Young's contention that Wikileaks is a CIA front operation. Wikileaks is intimately involved in a $20 million CIA operation that U.S.-based Chinese dissidents that hack into computers in China. Some of the Chinese hackers route special hacking program through Chinese computers that then target U.S. government and military computer systems. After this hacking is accomplished, the U.S. government announces through friendly media outlets that U.S. computers have been subjected to a Chinese cyber-attack. The "threat" increases an already-bloated cyber-defense and offense budget and plays into the fears of the American public and businesses that heavily rely on information technology.

It is also pointed out that on Wikileaks advisory board is Ben Laurie, a one-time programmer and Internet security expert for Google, which recently signed a cooperative agreement with the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) and has been charged by China with being part of a U.S. cyber-espionage campaign against China. Other Wikileaks advisory members are leading Chinese dissidents, including Wan Dan, who won the 1998 National Endowment for Democracy (NED) Democracy Award; Wang Youcai, founder of the Chinese Democracy Party; Xiao Qiang, the director of the China Internet Project at the University of California at Berkeley, member of the advisory board of the International Campaign for Tibet, and commentator on the George Soros-affiliated Radio Free Asia; and Tibetan exile and activist Tashi Namgyal Khamsitsang.

Our sources in Asia believe that Wikileaks ran afoul of their CIA paymasters after it was discovered that some of Wikileaks's "take" was being diverted to Mossad instead of to their benefactors at Langley. After a CIA cur-off in funding, "Daniel Schmitt" took over and moved the Wikileaks operation to Belgium and Sweden with hopes of making a more secure base in Iceland.
There are strong suspicions that Wikileaks is yet another Soros-funded "false flag" operation on the left side of the political spectrum. WMR has learned that after former Senator Norm Coleman (R-MN) decided to oppose Soros's choice of UN Secretary General Kofi Annan's deputy Mark Malloch Brown as President of the World Bank, succedding the disgraced Paul Wolfowitz, Soros put the Wikileaks operation into high gear. "Daniel Schmitt" hacked into Coleman's supporters list, stealing credit card info, addresses, and publishing the "take" on Wikileaks. Democrat Al Franken, who was strongly backed by Soros, defeated Coleman in a legally-contested and very close election.

It is also believed by informed sources that Soros is behind the operation to move Wikileaks to Iceland. By becoming a power in Iceland, Soros can prevent Icelanders from paying back the British and Dutch investors in Icelandic online Ponzi scheme banking and continue his all-out war against British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who has, in turn, targeted Soros for betting against pound sterling. 

Iceland is classic prey for Soros. The Icelandic krona has been decimated as a currency and has no where to go but up in value, especially if the British pound and the euro depreciate. Soros is currently talking down the euro, planning its fall and shorting it, just like he did versus the pound in London in the 1980s. After the UK's and Europe's currencies are devalued, Soros will buy every euro note in sight, thus making trillions.
Soros and his Wikileaks friends have in Iceland a practically unregulated banking system desperate for an influx of capital -- money that will come from the exiled Russian tycoons in Israel, London and the United States. Israeli investors like Bank Leumi, and awash in siphoned-off Bernard Madoff cash, will do their bit for this smash-and-grab operation by Soros's Quantum-linked hedge funds.

With Wikileaks firmly ensconced in Iceland, the "brave" and much-heralded information leakers will run an international blackmail operation against Soros's foes and launch computer break-ins against Soros's business rivals and non-Quantum banks. Wikileaks will be used as the info-hitmen against President Obama's and Rahm Emanuel's enemies in the 2012 re-election campaign.

From Iceland, Soros will be well-positioned to gain control over the massive mineral resources under the melting ice sheet of Greenland. Under the ice are the only major rare-earth deposits outside of China and with such minerals at his disposal, Soros can control the world's electronics industries. This past week's volcanic activity in Iceland could, however, disrupt or destroy Soros's plans to establish and control a North American-European gateway in Iceland.
Wikileaks and Iceland media law are stalking horses for Soros.
Soros's game plan for Iceland and its "freedom of information" zone was hatched years ago.

Race to the Top


Tennessee has historically been ranked near the bottom of the 50 states in education but it has won the first lottery in stimulus money in the 'race to the top' program. A one time $500 million grant that's been based on how well the state will follow the federal 'guidelines.' After the money is gone, any programs implemented will fall to state funding.

Some of the reports are hinting that professional corporate 'educators' will get a chunk of the money to go in and help the schools. It sounds like the beginnings of a 'corporatist' public school system using the strong arm of the feds to set an agenda.
In selecting winners, the education department used a complicated scoring system that weighted everything from states' willingness to track student and teacher performance, adopt uniform standards, and turn around or close their worst schools.
"Obviously, when they're dangling a carrot of half a billion dollars it doesn't hurt. Especially when we're scrambling for every penny," said Jerry Winters, director of government relations for the Tennessee Education Association. 

Teachers were leery of the proposed reforms, particularly the idea of using the state's massive data tracking system to evaluate their performance. In the end, Winters said, seven years of trust and cooperation between the union and the governor's office persuaded them to buy into the reforms.
 How will the state's $500M grant be spent?

I'm going to go with the idea that when the federal government gets involved in local education by dangling carrots in front of cash strapped states, it is not totally in the best interests of the children. The 'Obama reforms' will have a price.

Did the SPLC and ADL have a hand in FBI-DHS Militia Raids?





Michigan Militia member James Schiel, second from left, told AnnArbor.com today {3-28-10} that five people were arrested in the raids. He is pictured with Hutaree member Wendy Lineweaver, a member who goes by the name Chainsaw, a member named Kevin, and Will Bachman. In the photo, they were helping local law enforcement officials search for a Bridgewater Township man who was missing in February. {more}




Feds confirm 'activities' in southeastern Michigan
Federal agents conducted raids over the weekend in Lenawee and Wastenaw counties that reports say may be related to some members of Hutaree, a Christian-militia group in Michigan.

"We can confirm that there were law enforcement activities in the Lenawee/Washtenaw County area," said Detroit FBI Special Agent Sandra Berchtold. But she added that "the federal warrants are sealed and we can not comment at this time." {more}



Is it a coincidence that on March 25th annarbor.com reported that the SPLC and ADL attacked local officials for requesting and receiving help from a local militia group in searching for missing persons? People helping people is now not acceptable if those helping have a label attached to them that some don't like.

Who are the real hate groups here?

Bridgewater Township official turns to militia for help; watchdog groups question decision

Bridgewater Township Supervisor Jolea Mull has twice sought help from militia members this year to search for missing township residents.

The move is drawing criticism from militia watchdog groups, who say Mull is legitimizing an extreme right-wing movement that has a history of being associated with criminal activity.

And the partnership comes as the militia movement is exploding across the country, driven by fears of economic collapse and the potential for a crackdown on gun rights under the Obama administration, watchdog groups say.

About 50 militia members from five units live in Washtenaw County, militia leaders say. They are survivalists, who favor larger local government and a smaller federal government. Members are fiercely protective of their free speech and gun rights.

When Mull learned from Washtenaw County sheriff's deputies that a township woman was missing Jan. 13, she contacted local militia leader Jimmy Schiel.

“She said, ‘Hey, we need help to do a ground search for Anna-Maria Wheeker,” Schiel recalls of their phone conversation that morning. “I said, ‘So you want the militia?' And she said, ‘Yes.”

Mull, who said she was pleased with the militia’s response, contacted Schiel again Feb. 17 when deputies told her 56-year-old Robert Melvin Wise was missing.
Mark Potok, director of the Intelligence Project at the Montgomery, Ala.-based Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors extremist groups, questioned why an elected official would reach out to the militia.
The militia movement has been involved in an “enormous amount of criminal violence” and “huge number of domestic terror plots,” Potok said.

“It certainly seems poorly advised to be kind, to ask people who believe in completely false conspiracy theories and see the government largely as an enemy to help in law enforcement matters,” Potok said. “I don’t see how that could work out well.”
Mull, a Republican, turned to the militia because of their training in search and rescue techniques, familiarity with the local community and willingness to help, she said in a prepared statement. About 1,700 people live in Bridgewater Township in southwestern Washtenaw County.

“Unfortunately, in both cases, the searches ended tragically, but there’s an old cliché that says, ‘You are either part of the problem or part of the solution," she said. "It is clear to me from these experiences that our local militia is part of the solution."

“Based on what I have observed of our local militia’s efforts, I highly recommend that other municipalities coordinate with and get to know their local militia members."

The sheriff’s department was grateful for the help, said Derrick Jackson, the department’s director of community engagement.

“The volunteers were helpful whether they were militia, whether they were residents of that community or friends of elected officials,” Jackson said. “They did exactly what we asked of them.”
An elected official seeking help from the militia is “extraordinarily rare,” said Mark Pitcavage, director of investigative research for the Anti-Defamation League.

“Most people would stay away from these groups like the plague for very understandable reasons,” he said.
Mull’s decision to reach out to the militia comes as the militia movement is experiencing an “incredible resurgence” across the country, Pitcavage said. The movement gained steam after the government's siege of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, in 1993 and later tapered off.

But in the past 18 months, the number of militia groups has quadrupled to 200, Pitcavage said. “They wanna change the world,” “they are not satisfied with the status quo.”

“Certainly, the militia movement has generated a number of violent or otherwise dangerous individuals,” Pitcavage said.

We just can't have people in small communities helping each other. That might bring folks together. The hate organizations SPLC and ADL want a divided population. It's good for their business and the business of those they influence in the FBI and DHS.

Marijuana Legalization ~ Grassroots Industry or Corporate Takeover


California state officials have determined that the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010 has enough eligible signatures to appear on the November ballot.  This ballot measure would allow the possession of 1 ounce of marijuana for personal use by individuals aged 21 and older and the ability to cultivate gardens up to 25 square feet. Currently, possession in California is a misdemeanor that carries a $100 fine. The Act would ban the use in public or around minors.



A no brainer ... right ... End the insanity of this aspect of the war on drugs, tax it and go on our merry way. Maybe it's not that simple.

Even though California will rake in some much needed tax money to use wisely or waste, who will ultimately benefit? Will local growers be allowed to enter into the market or as usual when there's big money to be made will corporations attempt to corrupt the system and control the supply? Factory pot farms? I don't think we want to see that.

The initiative doesn't go into a lot of details on who would or could supply the legal product to the pot outlets. An  individual's restriction on growing based on square feet is also very limited and doesn't allow for much variety and breeding room. A positive is that it does introduce industrial hemp as a viable agriculture crop.

Humboldt County had a community meeting to discuss the issue. 
The road to marijuana legalization: Community pot meeting spurs hope for legitimate industry
Humboldt County's foray into open communication about its pot-based economy put a statewide spotlight on the county, and community organizers a little bit closer to a legitimate -- and functioning -- marijuana industry.

”Every place I've gone people have wanted to talk about it, people have been aware of it,” 3rd District Supervisor Mark Lovelace said Friday.

Lovelace was one of more than 100 people gathered at the Mateel Community Center in Redway Tuesday night to have a frank discussion about what the county -- and its residents who depend on the marijuana industry for income -- will do if pot becomes legal.

Lovelace said he has been to meetings in Fresno and Sacramento since Tuesday's meeting, and from the interest voiced by people he's met he thinks there may be similar discussions happening all over the state.

Tuesday's unprecedented conversation, garnering the attention of local, state and national media, resulted in a discussion about how to make Humboldt County economically viable through third-party product regulation and the branding of an environmentally-friendly technique and product.

California's National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Law (NORML) Deputy Director Ellen Komp said she thought the meeting was a successful one.

”This really is a community in a way that I've never seen before where people really pull together and I'm very hopeful that they're going to be able to find their way through  this in a way that's going to improve everyone's rights and quality of life,” Komp said. 

The meeting was set up for group discussions as well as a question and answer segment. Each group answered surveys about their potential contributions to the industry and what they are afraid of if legalization happens. Eleven groups filled out the surveys, each with a place card at its table to label their role in the community -- these included nonprofits, businesses, education, arts, organic outdoor growers, the Proposition 215 community, government, health care and “just curious” groups.

Cameras were not allowed and names were not used, providing a semi-safe haven for pot growers. A single chair with the place card “Feds” sat near the door.

Although the meeting ended on an optimistic note, the beginning set the stage for an industry fearful of collapse.

Organizer Anna Hamilton said legalization of marijuana will destroy the local economy.
”The golden goose will be dead,” she said.

Hamilton estimated that legalization will cause the price of outdoor marijuana to drop to $500 a pound and displace 15,000 to 30,000 people.

”The legalization of marijuana will be the single most devastating event in the work force on the North Coast,” she said.


Legalization 

When Komp, who has been a hemp activist and medical marijuana advocate, in addition to working on the campaign for legalization, moved to Humboldt County seven years ago, she thought she would be moving to the legalization “promised land.” Little did she know that economic pressures were keeping people from wanting pot to be legal.

”I thought people would be all for legalization, and I come to find out that they have a different set of concerns that I wasn't aware of,” she said Wednesday.

At Tuesday's meeting, many audience members had questions about whether legalization would actually happen.

Coincidentally, one of the initiatives proposing the taxing and regulating of marijuana qualified for the ballot Thursday. The state validated the signatures for the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010, enabling it to go on the ballot this November. The initiative would make it legal for adults 21 and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana and allow cities and counties to impose a tax on the sale of marijuana.

While residents were also concerned about Assemblyman Tom Ammiano's bill to legalize marijuana -- many said they think it takes control away from local government -- Lovelace said Ammiano's bill will not pass before the state initiative does.

”There's no way the legislative is going to get ahead of the people on this,” Lovelace said at the meeting. “If it is going to be legalized, it's going to go through the people.”

Lovelace said he was not there to address legalization, but rather to discuss “being prepared.”
Komp said the “big gorilla in the room” is the question of what the federal government will do if California makes marijuana legal.

Lovelace said, ultimately, the state is reacting to market forces, and if its failing economy pushes it in the direction of legalization, the federal government may not have too much to say.

”I think the feds are going to take a long hard look at 'can we really go to war with the State of California over this?'” he said.


Concerns
 
The group's concerns ranged from water issues to corporate takeover, according to the surveys. Of the 11 groups, the property owners were the only ones who would even entertain that legalized weed might improve the county's economic situation.

The outdoor growers group spilled into the outside patio. Joints dangled from fingertips, and the smell of marijuana drifted through the air. As fog drifted through the dense trees in the distance, they talked about how they are doing something they love and believe in, in a place they love to be.

While some talked about the “sacred plant,” others talked about collaboration and the fear of corporations coming into the industry and taking over.

Many seemed to defy pot industry stereotypes, having been farmers for several decades.
Lovelace said the diversity of the industry illustrates how similar marijuana is to other industries.

”There is no one single kind of grower,” he said. “Some were like every other farmer out there, except they are growing an illegal crop. There were people who are more of a hobbyist, people who are focused on medical grows and people who are just abusers who are there to make a quick buck and go on their way.”

Lovelace said he had his own concerns about how legalization could affect the migration of industry out of the county.

”The reason why people grew here is that it was easy to hide. If it's legal, people don't need to hide anymore,” he said. “We might see dramatic out-migration from the community.”

One grower from Mendocino spoke to the crowd about embracing the change.

”What are we afraid of? I sense fear in this room. What are we afraid of? Isn't this what we wanted? For it to be legal?”

He talked about focusing on medicine and other marijuana plant products.

”If you're growing it for money, you're growing it for the wrong reason. This is the spirit of the plant talking now ... the plant will always have wealth,” he said.


Napa Valley and Amsterdam 

Growers and members of the business community alike talked about branding, third-party regulating and certifying and following business models like the tobacco industry or the wine industry. Amsterdam, where marijuana is legal, was also mentioned a few times.

Former Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb said branding could mean exploring options for eco-tourism and organic certification.

”I want something that says this is grown in the sun, this is grown with love,” he said.
Lovelace said he'd be interested in seeing more of what the tobacco industry does in terms of protection for small farms.

Several people used Napa Valley's wine country as an example of how marijuana could be marketed.

Komp said Mendocino County has already begun taking these steps by setting up an advisory committee, looking at certification options and encouraging agricultural zoning.

Recently, the county quadrupled the number of medical marijuana plants that can be legally grown on a parcel, changing the limit from 25 to 99.

Mendocino farmers have also started an organic garden cooperative, which includes marijuana plants.

”Humboldt can ride these waves toward becoming a viable agricultural region for cannabis medical and, eventually, otherwise,” Komp said.


Moving forward 

Redwood Coast Rural Action Director Kathleen Moxon said the next step will be trying to figure out what assets Humboldt has in terms of intellectual property and what needs to be developed.

”We don't know how far ahead or behind we are in that curve,” she said, adding that there will need to be an effort to study the size of the industry and what opportunities are out there.

Redwood Coast Rural Action is a regional network that has identified the economy as its No. 1 priority, and is focused on linking industry clusters and economic development professionals across Mendocino, Humboldt, Del Norte and Trinity counties.

Moxon said she was at the meeting not to talk about legalization, necessarily, but to gauge the pulse of the community on the topic.

In the same vein, Ann Fielding, the College of the Redwoods' executive director of community and economic development, said she attended the meeting to see what the community needed in terms of education. She said the college would be continuing this conversation with the community to help shape the curriculum at its Garberville campus.

”CR is not taking a position here in any way on this issue but what we have to do, we have to look at the community access, what the training opportunities are and what the educational opportunities are,” she said.

Lovelace said whether the community's attempt to brand or market its unique product is successful will depend on each individual's efforts. The county's current focus is on medical marijuana guidelines, but he knows other statewide policy will need to be developed to encourage a healthy legitimate business.

For now, he maintains the stance of keeping communication lines open.

”Why was this so hard to do? Is it really that difficult for us to talk about it? We haven't talked about it in forever,” he said. “When it comes right down to it, it's a very easy conversation to have.”

It's Never Enough

Roll over congress ... the war machine needs more money. Everyone is up in arms about 'health care' but few break a sweat over the continuing fraud of 'death care' and the agenda of permanent war.

The Pentagon wants $33 billion in additional funding to pay for the war in Afghanistan this year and train the Afghan military, the Christian Science Monitor reports. Defense Secretary Gates and Secretary of State Clinton appeared before Senate appropriators to defend the war supplemental, which is on top of the $708 billion baseline budget submitted to Congress in February. Most of the war supplemental will pay for Afghanistan operations. $2.6 billion is to train the Afghan national security force. “The question is, how long is that going to have to continue to the point where we can kind of say we’ve done our thing,” asked Sen. George Voinovich (R) of Ohio. “Five years, ten years, 15 years?” “We are in this intense phase that will be several years,” Clinton said. “Obviously, I don’t know that either of us could put a timeline on it.”

Local Little False Flags?

Nothing like a few bricks with messages to get some attention.

Domestic extremists ... patriots ... anti government anarchists ... crazed Repubicans?

I'm going to call this paid provocation. It's easy, no one is hurt and they get to blame some 'groups' while hoping for some copycats to entrap.

How much sympathy those targeted by 'the haters'  will get from this remains to be seen.

It's funny how some traitors of other stripes are not getting threats and bricks thrown through their windows?

Leading Democrats moved today to condemn acts of vandalism and death threats against legislators after several members of Congress were targeted by angry opponents of the healthcare reform measure.

The FBI was called in to help handle a torrent of abuse, from bricks through congressional office windows to sinister, obscene phone messages. The House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, said the threats had "no place in a civil debate in our country".

The House Democratic leader, Steny Hoyer of Maryland, said that at least 10 House members were concerned for their personal safety, and a number reported their offices had been vandalized. {more}

Gordon Duff Also Says "Israel Did 9/11"

Global National Intelligence Services Confirm Israel Did 9/11 Says Gordon Duff, Former UN Diplomat and Defense Contractor (Radio Interview Transcript)
Gordon Duff is the senior editor of Veteranstoday.com, a former UN diplomat, a defense contractor, and a global political and economic advisor. He just returned from a trip to Pakistan. Duff was interviewed by Mark McGrath and Phil Cooke on "The Ugly Truth" Radio Program  (03-24-10). Half of Mr. Duff’s family are Jewish and so are most of his friends. He is not anti-semitic. You can listen to the podcast of Mr. Duff's radio interview at the following address: theuglytruth.podbean.com...

Duff confirmed Dr. Sabrosky’s assertion of 03-11-10 that it was Israel who pulled off the 9/11 attacks. Duff also confirmed that in agreement with Dr. Sabrosky, on June 8, 1967 it is certain an Israeli warship and Israeli war planes attacked the American ship, the USS Liberty, killing 34 and wounding 174 U.S. servicemen. Furthermore, at that time the American government mislead the American people into thinking that it was the United Arab Republic (included Egypt). who had attacked the USS Liberty. In other words the attack on the USS Liberty was a false-flag incident which Israel caused to try and pull the U.S. into a war against ISRAELI’s enemies, the United Arab Republic (included Egypt). Duff went on to say that to deny what actually happed with the USS Liberty is treason. This was an American “Holocaust” perpetrated by Israel.

Duff also informed the listening audience that today in European nations if someone in conversation mistakes how many Jews died in the Holocaust (you say 5,999,999 died instead of 6,000,000) they are charged with being an anti-semitic Holocaust denier and they are sent to prison for 5 years. This occurs whether the charge is true or not. If you try and fight the charge of anti-semitism, you go to prison for 10 years instead and your lawyer goes to prison with you.

America's "Islamists:" Go Where Oilmen Fear to Thread

By:  Peter Chamberlin

By following the trail of militant terrorists US forces and American interests have gained access deep in Central Asia, where oil companies have had little luck gaining a foothold on their own.

To students of American foreign policy in Afghanistan and throughout the world, it is common knowledge that the United States military and Central Intelligence often act in a manner that is contradictory to the words of American leaders.  To those who care to look behind the curtain of American duplicity, which casts a veneer of benevolence over our actions, it becomes readily apparent that “Islamic militants” tend to show-up wherever American oil companies have expressed an interest.  America’s historical usage of the same militant groups in the past casts suspicion on their reappearance today, all along the pathway of the projected pipelines.

It is much more than mere serendipity that militant actions usually target American adversaries, such as China, Russia and Iran.  In addition, “Islamists” seem to also target disobedient American allies, such as Pakistan, who have fallen out-of-line, or otherwise failed to meet American expectations.  Given our use of Islamist militants in Afghanistan to attack Russian forces, as well as in Bosnia, to attack Russia’s allies, the Serbians, it takes a very small leap of the imagination to see that the US is logically supporting the very militants our forces are fighting in the field.

The key to understanding American foreign policy is the Hegelian dialectic—the policy of taking certain actions that will cause reactions that are the polar opposite of what you really claim to wanted in the first place:

“The Hegelian Dialectic is, in short, the critical process by which the ruling elite create a problem, anticipating in advance the reaction that the population will have to the given crisis, and thus conditioning the people that a change is needed. When the population is properly conditioned, the desired agenda of the ruling elite is presented as the solution. The solution isn’t intended to solve the problem, but rather to serve as the basis for a new problem or exacerbate the existing one.”{more}

Social Inequality in America: Widening Income Disparities.

Our economy is designed to "increase injustice, inequality and exploitation," in order to perpetuate the dominion of the "opulent minority" over us. And the deregulation of every sector of the US market was a deliberate policy decision by these stunningly insane, sociopathic, genocidal maniacs, who kept our economy alive by creating more debt/credit in order to enrich themselves with the interest payments. Now the economy is getting intravenous bailouts of taxpayer money while it languishes on life support.

And as for illegal immigration, successive administrations have never actually wanted to stop it, which may have been the point of NAFTA in the first place. By driving a flood of impoverished workers across the border to take jobs at the very corporations that wouldn't be able to exist without such "illegal" labor, the cost of US wages could be driven down across the board.

The Highest Productivity at the Lowest Possible Wage equals Maximum Profit. When the supply of labor (that's us) exceeds demand, the price of labor (wages) falls because too many of us are competing for too few jobs. This is the reason for minimum wages, maximum hours, and the elimination of child labor. The fewer workers there are, the higher the wage. But with the globalization of work, transnational corporations have the entire workforce of the world to choose from, and some of the most desperately poor people on earth to employ/exploit.
In Bangladesh, a garment worker makes 22 cents an hour. The wage in Cambodia is 33 cents an hour; in Pakistan, 37 cents an hour; in Vietnam, 38 cents; in Sri Lanka, 43 cents; Indonesia, 44 cents; India, 55 cents; China, 86 cents; the Philippines, $1.07; and Malaysia, $1.18. This is the marketplace for labor in which we must compete.
Why would a US transnational corporation pay you minimum wage, approximately $7.25 an hour, when they can get the same work for from six to 35 times cheaper, leave the ownership and maintenance of the production facility to an overseas subcontractor, ship the manufactured goods into the US with no tariff imposed, and keep the profits offshore to avoid paying income tax? The only way it would be profitable for that transnational corporation to hire you is if you "agreed" to work for less. Could you live on less than 22 cents an hour? Do I have to ask? {more - Vi Ransel}

The Face Off








Noura Qawariq, 85, hugged her dead grandson Salah Muhammad Qawariq, 18, who was killed near a Jewish settlement in the West Bank on Sunday.



The Fanatics of Israel vs the U.S. and World Opinion

"Bibi" Netanyahu, Israel's prime minister, is a disciple of Ze'ev Jabotinsky, the founder of the most radical, racist, and militant form of Zionism. The West should know that there can be no appeasement with such fanatics who are devoted to an ideology of Jewish supremacism and Greater Israel. The fact that the U.S. and the international community have now clearly condemned illegal Israeli settlements is piling pressure on Netanyahu and his government of extremists. The crucial question now is how will Netanyahu respond to this pressure? This is a dangerous situation because Zionist zealots usually react with violence and terrorism.

The Obama administration and the international community have finally confronted Israel's illegal settlements, its Wall of Apartheid, and the racism inherent in Zionism. The dispute over illegal Israeli settlements on occupied land puts the Obama administration (and the U.N. and international community) into a political face off with the extreme right-wing regime led by the prime minister from the Likud, Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu. Who will prevail? The U.S. government and the American people need to stand firm against the racism and dangerous fanaticism of Zionists like Netanyahu.

How can any American support a state like Israel that is built on a basis of racial and religious segregation? If apartheid was wrong in South Africa, how can it be acceptable in Palestine? Only a racist could support the apartheid state created by Zionism. Why does the U.S. support the Jewish racism of Israel? Why are U.S. taxpayer dollars being used to build illegal settlements and Israel's hideously ugly wall of separation? It is high time for the American people to boycott Israeli racism and demand that U.S. foreign policy reflect fundamental American principles and values.

It should be clear to all that the so-called "Two State Solution" to the problem in Palestine is no solution. The only viable solution, and the only solution the United States should promote, is a non-racist democratic state in the whole of Palestine in which Christians, Muslims, and Jews are all allowed to live as equals under the law. International law, a number of U.N. resolutions, and common sense tell us that the Palestinian refugees must be allowed to return to their homes, villages, and land that were stolen from them by Zionist terrorism. The Zionists were allowed to settle in Palestine with the specific agreement that the rights and interests of the native Palestinian population would not be compromised in any way. The racist laws and policies of the Zionist state must be dismantled. It's that simple. To think that any peaceful compromise can be reached with fanatical Zionism, a racist ideology based on religion, is foolish and dangerous.

Over 7,500 Traitors

That's the number expected to attend this year's AIPAC conference, March 21-23.

While there they will get some talking points from war criminals and psychopaths Tony Blair and  Benjamin Netanyahu. Hillary Clinton also will speak before the faithful that will include many members of the Senate and House.


 
AIPAC brags how they have so many non-jew dupes and deceived Christians attending.
You might think that Israel is strictly a Jewish issue. But with a quick look around the Washington Convention Center during the next three days, you'd see that the pro-Israel movement in the United States is growing more diverse each year. Jews and non-Jews, religious and secular, African Americans and Latinos-all of them are here to show their support for a strong U.S.-Israel relationship.

 In addition, 50 pastors and church leaders are attending the conference, which for the fourth year in a row features programming specifically designed for Christian supporters of the Jewish state. A panel discussion this afternoon called "Friends of Faith" will examine the roots of Christian Zionism and explore how pro-Israel Christians and Jews can work together in the political arena to strengthen Israel's security.
Even more incredulous is the 'theme' of this year's treason fest.
The theme of this year's conference is "Israel: Tell the Story." Conference programming will highlight the many facets of Israel-an innovator, a Jewish homeland, a light unto the nations and much more.  
There's a lot of talk about a rift in US-Israeli relations but it's most likely Lights, Camera, Distraction. The Lobby will put the pressure on to make sure no US taxpayer money and armament welfare to Israel is disturbed.

AIPAC is a foreign agent and spy agency. They have bought and blackmailed many in Congress and the administration. Federal officials cower at the threat of loss of their jobs or worse if support for Israel is not given.

AIPAC's Orwellian doublespeak and actions are a sickness imposed on the American people. Let's just call it as it is .... AIPAC is treasonous and those that support them are traitors.

~~~

Medea Benjamin of Code Pink says they will protest and try to disrupt the conference. That's good but until CP opens up on 9/11 and Israeli complicity in the attacks, we'll still look at them with a wary eye. 

Benjamin says in the video below:
"And then there's just a parade of congresspeople who go through there {AIPAC}, it's like they continue to bow down to this organization that supports the worst militaristic criminal activities."
Actually Medea, it's not 'like' they bow down, they do bow, real low.

Tennessee Mandates More Vaccinations for Kids

Big Pharma picks up a few more bucks. The 27 vaccinations per child will only increase over time.



Tennessee children should be ready to bare their arms and thighs for a bevy of needle sticks — like it or not — before they can go to school next year.

That's because the state passed new rules that require school-age children to get vaccinated against chicken pox, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, whooping cough and pneumococcal disease — on top of the vaccines they already get.By the seventh grade, a child will have had 27 doses of immunizations to protect against diseases, many now eradicated. Some parents wonder if children are being over-vaccinated.

Tennesseans do a good job of getting children immunized. The state ranks fourth in the nation. About 98 percent of children get shots as required, and about 1 percent have a religious or health exemption.

But one in four parents believe a link exists between autism and vaccines, {more - The Tennesseean}

Jobs Promised to Retiring Congressmen for Yes Vote?



"Selling your vote is as American as apple pie."








My retiring congressman, Bart Gordon, switches his vote on the health care bill and the rumors fly.


Buying the Blue Dog Democrats?
Most interesting rumor from the Hill yesterday: Rep. Bart Gordon (D-Tenn.) who announced his retirement from Congress has been promised the job of NASA administrator in exchange for his vote, and Rep. John Tanner (D-Tenn.), another retiring Democrat, has been promised an appointment as U.S. Ambassador to NATO in exchange for his vote.

It will be interesting to note any job announcements from this Tennessee duo post-House retirement.  Both voted against passage of the House bill back in November.
plus .....
With Democratic Rep. Bart Gordon announcing his support for health reform today, Republicans began asking whether Gordon was swayed by the extra $100 million in Medicaid money the bill includes for his home state of Tennessee.

Page 67, line 13 of the reconciliation bill includes extra Medicaid money for states that don't qualify for funding now. Turns out the provision only applies to Tennessee. Hawaii, which is in a similar situation, was already  taken care of in the Senate bill. The Volunteer State was left hanging. {more}

Leprechaun dies in St Patrick’s Day bank robbery shootout



No pot of gold this time.










Leprechaun-dressed bank robber tied to Santa-dressed heist


GALLATIN — The man shot and killed after robbing a Gallatin, TN bank dressed as a leprechaun on St. Patrick's Day is the same man who robbed a Hermitage bank dressed as Santa three days before Christmas, investigators say.

Two men robbed First State Bank on Nashville Pike at lunchtime Wednesday, firing at police during a chase down busy city streets to a field behind a subdivision where they were killed in a gun battle with officers.

David Christopher Cotton of Wildwood Valley Road in Brentwood was identified as the man in the leprechaun suit, and Jonathan Ryan Skinner was identified as the driver of the getaway vehicle. Skinner was a student at Western Kentucky University.

Investigators say Skinner was shot by officers; they believe Cotton killed himself but are waiting for an autopsy to verify that.

The two have been linked to the Dec. 22 robbery of SunTrust Bank on Old Hickory Boulevard in Hermitage during which a man in a Santa suit filled a red sack with money and fled in a gray car parked in a nearby church parking lot, according to Gallatin police working with the FBI's Bank Robbery Task Force. {more}

The Military KNOWS Israel pulled off 911


the full interview with Mark Glenn
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMsdNl...

http://theuglytruth.podbean.com/2010/03 ... March-15-2010


Dr. Alan Sabrosky, former director of studies at the US Army War College says that the military brass now know that Israel and those traitors within our nation committed the 911 attack 

Expect a False Flag Terror Attack to Precede Invasion of Iran 
The next step will be a staged “terrorist attack,” a “false flag” operation as per Operation Northwoods, for which Iran will be blamed. As Iran and its leadership have already been demonized, the “false flag” attack will suffice to obtain US and European public support for bombing Iran. The bombing will include more than the nuclear facilities and will continue until the Iranians agree to regime change and the installation of a puppet government. The corrupt American media will present the new puppet as “freedom and democracy.”

If the past is a guide, Americans will fall for the deception.  {more - Paul Craig Roberts via Revelations}

War's End


the dreams of youth are fragile.

taken in the blink of an eye

while we hold our tongues and shuffle our feet

only saying 'there's nothing I can do.'










 War's End by C.J. Dennis
Greyer and older, still they stand
   Wearier, quieter, still they pray;
Men who had offered their all to a land.
   And their thoughts run back to an olden day
When Youth sailed gallantly, gaily forth --
   Romance for King, and faith to the fore --
To the older, bitterer lands of the north,
   To battle, that men might end all war.

Ageing Diggers, grown wiser now,
   Again they are dreaming before their shrine
Of the long-gone day when they made the vow
   With hearts uplifted, and eyes a-shine.
And thro' their dreaming there drifts to-day
   A newer note and a sad refrain,
As their thoughts return to that bitter fray:
   "Was it all in vain? Was it all in vain?"

Soberer, sterner, still they hear
   Endless thunder of vengeful guns
Echoing out of a long dead year.
   And, "God," they pray, "must these our sons
Learn over again all we'd fain forget?
   Buy over again their need of peace
Live over again worse madness yet?
   Is earth's grim agony never to cease?"

Ageing Diggers before their shrine:
   "Is there never a respite, no release?
We who have suffered look for a sign.
   Is there never a hope for a lasting peace?
We who have known it all before:
   The madness, agony, needless pain --
We who once battled to end all war --
   Was it all in vain? Was it all in vain?"

When Good Sites Censor



One of my favorite sites is Daily Paul. It's been an open forum and a very large one for those who appreciate freedom of speech. Always lots to agree and disagree with, just as open communication should  be.

But lately a couple of subjects have been seen to be divisive to the dialog. The owner of DP, Michael Nystrom, thinks it is in the best interests of his site to censor some of the most interesting and thought provoking posts concerning 9/11 and Israel.

To me these two issues, the false flag 9/11 and Israel's actions and influences, lie at the root of many of our current problems. Obviously many others at DP think so too judging by the threads there.  

Yeah, trolls/provocateurs are a problem at DP but that's everywhere and I've found if you just ignore them they'll go away. And if people don't like certain topics, well ... just ignore those too. It really should be a case of  'we're all on the same side here and no need to agonize over minor differences.'

What made DP relevant was it's diversity of topics and not being afraid to go down some less traveled paths as I thought the Paul message did.

Two of those paths are now seen to be divisive and not worthy of 'safe' consideration.

Sort of .... 'Gotta get our side's politicians elected and be more mainstream. Otherwise the big media may call us kooks and alienate potential voters. The political system can still work if we all agree.'

I'm not all that sure that tactic will work. All the truth as we know it at this moment should be told and debated.

Here's the latest DP thread on the topic of censoring.

Warning! Censoring topics will cause harm to the site and Movement.

Dear Michael,

There are uncountable number of throlls all over the internet whose job is to disrupt blogs and other websites, and get websites to censor themselves for negative mentions of Israel.

It is not easy to maintain the integrity of a site and still allow free discourse; I know that the throlls and shills will play both sides of the game to cause disruption till they cause the break of integrity and achieve censorship.

The Daily Paul already has good posting rules in place and only needs to enforce to ensure proper discussion of any topic. It does not need to censor negative discussion of just one county. Just imagine what doing that means!

The negative aspects of targeting just one country for censorship, are too many to mention. But from my experience there will be great disruptions to the site if you decide to unjustly target just one country.
The comments are varied  and telling. Mr. Nystrom responds:
Censoring is necessary in order to remain focused.

The mission of this site is to promote Ron Paul and his ideas.
Among these ideas are individual liberty.
911, and related topics tend to be divisive and take the community off message. 
Nystrom has all the right in the world to control his site as he wants. I just happen to think it's not in either his or the truth movement's best interests to limit the discourse. The Daily Paul should not be a garden variety alternative site to say, the Huffington Post. They censor the same topics there don't they.

~~~

Here's an article that was linked at the DP Sunday that got a lot of people going, both those sincere and the trolls. I guess it got a little too heavy and was censored. It may have been the so called 'straw that broke the camel's back.'
Israel Did 9/11, All the Proof You Need

Ruby Ridge Investigation - Sept. 6, 1995 C-SPAN

Go to the 52 minute mark in the video for Randy Weaver's testimony.



The subcommittee heard testimony about the 1992 FBI shootout at the cabin of Randy Weaver and his family in northern Idaho that resulted in the deaths of Weaver's wife, son and a federal marshal. Senator Craig, while not a member of the Judiciary Committee, made a statement as the "home state" senator. The door of the cabin with a bullet hole in the glass was displayed. Testifying about the events for the first time in public, Mr. Weaver said he was the victim of a vengeful government campaign. He believed his wife was shot intentionally. Earlier this year the FBI agreed to a settlement in Mr. Weaver's civil suit against them by agreeing to pay $3.1 million to the family.
