Israeli Massacre on Gaza Peace Flotilla - The World Must Act!

This is the story that matters on this 'Memorial Day'.


This is what the murderous Israeli government is. A zionist land theft death cult hell bent on anything but peace.


The world must take action.


What excuses will Obama and the traitorous US congress make for this  attack?

How will the jewish controlled US media spin this? The massacre happened in international waters.


It's time to put the Zionazis in their place, once and for all.

End the US money and all support for the criminal state of Israel.

Stop U.S. Support of Israeli Terrorism
'Aid' to Israel --better described as a 'rogue' or 'terrorist' nation than a 'state' --must end!

The time has come to cut off all 'aid' to Israel.

By supporting Israel, the U.S. is itself in violation of the law, specifically, the 'Symington Amendment' in which aid of any type is forbidden to 'Nuclear states' which are not signatory to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty'. Moreover, 'Dual-citizen' Israelis now serve in U.S. government positions, obvious instances of conflict of interest but worse --allegiance! Clearly --this practice is subversive of U.S. security and should have been considered 'treasonous' if the U.S. had been truly at 'war' against 'terrorist' nations. Rather, a convincing case that Israel itself is a terrorist nation in partnership with the United States. I find it hard to believe that any other nation has allowed any other nation the access allowed Israel by the United States.

It is time that people themselves began to demand an end to the un-holy CIA/Israel partnership even if there is precious little that mere 'people' can do against that other 'terrorist' organization: Mossad. There is, however, tremendous political pressure that might be applied to members of Congress and the various 'consulate' offices that the client state of Israel maintains on U.S. soil. {more - Len Hart}

Obama is a pussy!
Obama should have been the one to cancel tomorrow's meeting.

If Obama were a real man of principles, like Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, or John Kennedy, he would stop being such a pussy with Israel and sever all diplomatic relations with Israel for so misusing the military equipment the US gave them.

Setting aside the recent revelation that Israel attempted to sell a nuclear weapon to South Africa, which means ALL US aid to Israel is illegal, the military aid granted to Israel is specifically to be used for defense. Attacking a humanitarian aid convoy in international waters is not defense; it is piracy. Netenyahu has made the US an accessory to this crime because the US supplied the weapons and equipment used to kill the peace activists.

The longer limp-dick Obama wimps out and "studies the situation" the more obvious it becomes that Israel is indeed blackmailing the United States government with 9-11 to enslave our nation.

State Crimes Against Democracy " Building What? How SCADs Can Be Hidden in Plain Sight"

David Ray Griffin presents a concise analysis of the Sept. 11, 2001 WTC Building 7 collapse phenomena. A must read for those wanting to hone their talking points on what perhaps can be the best introduction for those unaware or previously unwilling to consider the issue of the 'false flag' of 9/11.





A symposium in the February 2010 issue of American Behavioral Scientist, one of our leading social science journals, argues that social scientists need to develop a scientific approach to studying an increasingly important type of criminality: State Crimes Against Democracy, abbreviated SCADs, understood as “concerted actions . . . by government insiders intended to manipulate democratic processes and undermine popular sovereignty.” Having the “potential to subvert political institutions and entire governments . . . [SCADs] are high crimes that attack democracy itself.”

The truth about the collapse of WTC 7 has been effectively hidden, even though it has existed in plain sight all these years. Even the bare fact of the collapse itself has been so effectively hidden that in 2006 over 40 percent of the American public did not know about it, and in 2009 a judge in New York City, upon hearing a reference to Building 7, asked: “Building what?” 

I offer this essay as a case study in the power of the forces behind SCADs or deep events to hide things that exist in plain sight, because if they can hide the straight-down free-fall collapse of a 47-story building captured on video in broad daylight, they can hide almost anything.

I say this, however, not to instill despair, but to point to the seriousness of the problem, and also to pave the way for making a proposal. Recognizing the high correlation between those who know about the collapse of WTC 7 and those who believe that a new – or rather real – 9/11 investigation is needed, I propose that the international 9/11 Truth Movement initiate, starting this September, a world-wide, year-long “Building What?” campaign. Through this campaign, we would seek to make the fact of its collapse so widely known that the mention of Building 7 would never again evoke the question: “Building What?”

John Fitzgerald
John Fitzgerald (http://johnfitzgeraldforcongress.com) calls for a new, fully independent 9/11 investigation. Standing on a Lafayette hillside planted with over 5,000 white crosses representing fallen U.S. soldiers in Iraq, John Fitzgerald makes a solemn plea for peace, justice, accountability, and a true independent investigation into 9/11 which is still being used to justify endless war.

Because troubling questions about 9/11 still remain unanswered. Numerous internal contradictions in the 9/11 Commission report remain conflicted. Plus new incontrovertible physical evidence, insider whistleblowers' testimonies, and a stream of damning revelations - such as that Abu Zubaydah is now completely cleared from any role he was alleged to have had in the 9/11 attacks - incisively debunk the official government story.

Enough: John demands the truth. Fitzgerald challenges George Miller to live up to his promise to protect the interests of his constituents and all Americans by calling to declassify all 9/11 government documents and reveal the truth. John is the Democratic challenger to Rep. George Miller in California's 7th district.

Never Getting a Truthful Answer


Helen Thomas asks Barry ...
"When are you going to get out of Afghanistan? Why are we continuing to kill and die there? What is the real excuse and don't give us this Bushism “if we don't go there they'll all come here.”



Obama answers ...
9/11, al qaeda, 3,000 dead ...


This young middle Tennessee man was 11 years old on 9/11. Enlisted in June 2009, deployed to Afghanistan in March 2010, died May 17, 2010.

Dead for lies. Obama's hands drip with blood. The bankers and war profiteers smugly count their money.


The young man leaves behind an 8-month-old daughter and a wife, Caitlin, who admits at age 20, Billy was too young to die, and she's too young to be a widow.

Oh, but there's a new National Security Strategy just released today. There's going to be a great number more like Billy to die in vain as that 'policy' is implemented.

Maybe next time Helen can ask how that's going.

Top Down Killing


I heard in the latest, Shape of Things to Come- ALTA Report that… BP is largely owned by Zionists. I didn’t know this. Do they own everything? It’s a good question. Forbes puts out the world’s richest list at certain intervals. How come The Rothschild’s are never listed?

I’m not going to go into all of the intricate details, which are made intricate by those using the confusion to engage in criminal activity. I’m just going to lay it out as a direct statement and you can assume it is true, even if there are other factors at work. When money gets tight, it’s because the Central Banks caused it. When the housing market crashes or any other financial problem occurs, the Central Banks, along with Goldman Sachs, or Wall Street, if you prefer, caused it. When war breaks out anywhere in the world it is because the Central Banks want to generate capital from financing both sides of the conflict. When any nation in the world is suddenly in serious financial trouble or on a breathing apparatus, due to the weight of crushing debt on their chests, the Central Banks caused it in order to loot the resources of that country without paying for them.

There are a few simple reasons why all of the complicated problems you hear about occur. Let’s look at the result first and then work backward. 1% of the population possesses 40% of the wealth and the lower 40% of the population (economically speaking) possesses 1% of the wealth. This is some kind of official number, so I suspect the gap is actually wider. I can say with some authority that it is certainly getting wider every day. Who owns all those millions of foreclosed houses? Banks own them. Did banks lose money making risky loans to these people whose houses they now own? They might have but the American people gave them bailouts to cover what might have been their losses. It’s hard to imagine these banks ever losing money (except for the smaller banks swallowed up for lunch by the Central Banks) because they can print more money out of thin air any time they want to. {more - Les Visible}

Zionist Racist Rachel Maddow and Rand Paul

I'm not sure about David Duke. He has no problem exposing the murderous state of Israel and the zionist controlled main stream media and groveling politicians but he still goes right along with the 19 Arabs did 9/11 rhetoric of the 'official story.' That's a disconnect I have a problem with. He fails my bottom line litmus test. It can't be that Duke is not aware of the Israeli/Mossad/rogue U.S. officials involvement in 9/11 but just as Ron and Rand Paul do, he embraces the so called 'blowback' theory. What is really going on here?

'Emergency' Spending for the Traitorous Few



For the fiscal year that ends Sept. 30, the Obama administration has requested $33 billion for the Pentagon for war efforts; $5.1 billion for FEMA; $4.5 billion for the State Department’s work in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq; and $2.8 billion for Haiti. These funds have been requested as an emergency, which means their cost would not count against the annual cap on discretionary funding.


The game of stealing more than we have and more than our children's children's children can ever hope to have continues. No U.S. government budget, no matter how insane, is ever going to be enough.

There always has to be an 'emergency' to add to it. War is the main one. It's the easiest to sell to the majority because they can't come to terms with the fact that everything they know is wrong and that killing and stealing is the main business of our government for the bankers and their few allies in a criminal syndicate plot.

It won't be long before the real emergency of the Gulf oil spill comes into play and requires an infusion of fiat money debt supposedly to be paid by taxpayers because BP is too big to fail and 'accidents' happen.

We're being set up for a possible 'emergency' war with North Korea. Fixing the Iran 'threat' is always just a false flag emergency away.

If Israel decides to use up some armaments against Lebanon, Iran, Syria, Gaza etc. etc., that would surely be an emergency requiring more printed up money debt put on our backs.


Real emergencies we'll take care of ... gladly. Helping our fellow citizens give us a sense of community, both locally and globally.

As for the rest of the lying, war profiteering, thieving 'emergencies' that benefit only a few I say .....

A strategy of liberation requires emancipation

 

The case for “Palestinian voice”
A critique through the eyes of an exiled Palestinian

By nahida the Exiled Palestinian




After almost one century of Zionist terrorism in Palestine, the world is gradually waking up to this racist and destructive ideology.

Contributing to the heroic Palestinian Resistance, this growing awareness will incidentally precipitate the abolition of the Zionist ideology and its hideous manifestation, just like slavery or Nazism were abolished.

The Palestinian Resistance and its allies represent an exemplary model of diversity and cooperation across borders, race, age, economic circumstances, religion or nationality.
In essence, the Palestinian Resistance is a model of inclusion, the radical contrary of the exclusivist Zionist ideology.

Contrary to the gory Zionist project, our true and sincere aspirations are long lasting Peace, Justice and Freedom. For us, this will restore of the true foundations of Palestinian society.

After almost a century of unrepentant Zionist terrorism in Palestine, all doubts have vanished: The only real road to Peace is a full and unconditional Liberation of Palestine, liberation from this supremacist ideology and liberation from the perpetrators. That will inevitably mean a return to the original, peaceful society Palestine was before the Zionist invasion.

To be called again “The Holy Land”, Palestine must be reunified with its people, the Palestinians.
Only Palestinians can heal the disfigured landscape and Holy City of Jerusalem, for the benefit of humanity. Only Palestinians will open its doors to all those who come in Peace, as they had in the past, contrary to the present day Zionist occupiers and their apocalyptic weaponry and dishonesty, their bulldozers uprooting millennial olive groves, destroying biblical World Heritages, evicting entire families from their ancestral houses and neighborhoods, bringing harm and destabilization all across the Middle-East and to the world.

To aim towards the Liberation of Palestine, it is vital to establish a clear, firm and visionary strategy, one that is not sabotaged by diversions, deflections, dilutions, obfuscation or control by anyone with slightly different objectives than the Palestinians themselves.

As a person who holds this Liberation dear to my heart, and as someone who was involved for many years- with various shades and colours of activism in support of the Palestinian struggle, I can testify personally of the significant change in people’s awareness and level of support to this just cause; thanks to the endurance and perseverance of Palestinians and the passionate hard work of our supporters across the globe.

Will the Real Rand Paul Please Stand Up?







Will this Dr. Paul have the courage to stand up to the most powerful lobbies in Washington?



photo art from The Peoples Voice



Rand Paul is a novice politician so he's going to make some missteps in trying to maneuver the minefields of the corrupt political system. He makes strides, gets wounded, resorts to damage control and tries to move on.

What's interesting is that Paul gets support from and is attacked from both the left, right and middle.

From the foundation funded left gatekeepers to the corporate controlled media, he takes his hits. He's called everything from neocon to neoliberal. Opposed by still walking free criminals Dick Chaney and Rudy Giuliani and yet supported by still walking free criminal enablers like Sarah Palin. Even one of the most despicable war mongers there is, Bill Kristol, gives a sort of/kind of endorsement. Kristol obviously thinks Paul can be controlled.

Paul's Democrat opponent Jack Conway, another state attorney general, appears to have endorsement from left gatekeeper Daily Kos so some may find that reason enough to vote for Rand in November. The Huffington Post is no friend of Paul and as much as I hate to admit it, they make some points that need to enter into the debate. But it's still all part of the false left/right paradigm.

Most of us don't have a vote in Kentucky so we're just watching from the sidelines for now. Yet whoever wins the general election will eventually have an effect on all of us.

The way I see it is Jack Conway will fall right in with the establishment and not be any help for his state or this country. There is the slight possibility that Paul might disturb the status quo just enough to get some of the real messages out front when this game of getting elected is over. As I was reminded today from someone who I consider an ally, "I care for the message more than the messenger."

We pick and choose our messages. We will never agree with everyone on everything and some compromise is necessary. What we don't agree with perhaps we can try to influence and lead in another direction.

Will, or maybe the word should be can, Rand Paul make a difference in the Senate? Can he stand up to the lobbies, the influence of Israel and the zionists, the military industrial complex, Wall Street and the Federal Reserve, the corporate and political criminals who are destroying us? Can he oppose the wars based not only on the monetary costs but also on the lies that have led us there and the moral and ethical implications?

Despite many of the messages that Rand's father Ron espouses, those that we nod our heads and say yes to, I can't thinks of a single direction in governmental laws and policies that have changed for the better over the last decade. And yes, Ron has had very little help and has faced much subversion. Most good things can't be accomplished alone.

Whether Rand Paul can make a difference or whether his candidacy is a crack pipe dream of the deceived remains to be seen.

What we do know is that the system is broken and we have allowed it to happen.

It'll get more interesting and likely more deadly from here on out.

Gubernatorial Candidate Zach Wamp Wants Middle Tennessee Economic 'Defense Corridor' of Blood



In Wamp's own words, persistent warfare is the opportunity and the key to middle Tennessee's future job creation and economic development.




Zach Wamp, TN 3rd district Republican congressman, is leaving his DC war enabler post to try and be governor. A big part of his 20/20 vision for the future is to bring the blood money home.
Zach will apply {his} aggressive approach at regional cooperation on a statewide basis including his proposed creation of a manufacturing “Defense Corridor” along I-24 and I-65 from the U.S. Army’s Redstone Arsenal in North Alabama to the U.S. Air Force’s Arnold Center near Tullahoma to Fort Campbell on the Kentucky line.

In this era of geo-political instability, ongoing terrorism and persistent conflict around the world, Zach envisions an opportunity to connect and leverage Tennessee’s regional assets to help create a powerful new economic engine – a Defense Corridor – that will help make our economy even more resilient in tough economic times.

This new Defense Corridor will not only help create thousands of new jobs here in Tennessee but will help protect America’s homeland and support our troops overseas.

Yes sir, that's what we need! Jobs for the war machine! Who cares if it means that to create and keep these jobs the conflicts overseas will have to go on forever and the fear mongering and false flags of  'terror' here at home must continue to be perceived as real. Heck, that idle GM Saturn plant in Spring Hill is just waiting to be retrofit to create some kind of weapons of mass destruction that can be used up just to make more.

And just because hundreds of thousands, maybe millions more, brown skinned people will die and be displaced and who knows how many US soldiers will come home in a box or be physically/psychologically damaged, that's no reason not to cash in. Work is work and these newly created taxpayers will help keep the scam in perpetual motion.

The problem with all this is that Wamp is an absolutely insane neocon shill and death merchant ... totally unfit to hold any public office.

The very idea that killing and destruction is good for the economy is a sick lie.

Len Hart explains in How the War Depresses the U.S. Economy ..... here are some excerpts .....
The cost of Bush's war on Iraq, left to Obama to 'finish' and clean up, passed the one trillion dollar mark some time ago but has yet to support or prove the old lie that 'wars are good for the economy'. Where is the evidence that the $Trillion$ spent murdering and torturing people in a nation that was, in fact, no threat to the United States, has created a single job on the home front? In fact, those $Trillion$ blown up in Iraq are lost forever --not having created a single new job.

Instead, manpower that might have been employed in productive industries was diverted to destructive and false causes. Instead of creating futures, we will be lucky to escape a tragic past!

The fact is, war is parasitic, destructive not of enemies but of the home front economy. Even if the U.S. should win militarily, the war is lost on the home front where it continues to be paid for by the subversive and depressive effect it has had upon productive industries and activities that provide real jobs, viable opportunities, exports!

War is not only a 'racket', as Gen. Smedley Butler so famously declared, it is a parasite!

Only the Military/Industrial complex benefits from war; what is good for the MIC is NOT good for the country. The MIC is a drag on the economy, an economic black hole into which is drained the economic and creative resources of the nation.

America's ruling elite have found nirvana --a war which need never end, a war in which victory is impossible to define and would not be recognized, a war in which victory is, in fact, impossible. A war which achieves precisely what it is intended to achieve: the enrichment of a tiny ruling elite for whom your rights mean absolutely nothing. {read the rest}

Pardon my language but "Fuck Zach Wamp!"

He and his kind need to crawl back in their rabbit holes of blood ... never to be seen or heard from again.

The Slow Demise of Political Establishment Whores










Arlen Specter of the Warren Commission demonstrating his 'magic' bullet theory in 1964.




Over 45 years have passed since Specter first entered the national spotlight of cover ups and corruption. That's a long time for a career criminal to wield power and it remains to be seen if Joe Sestak, an ex-career vice admiral, will be any better for the people. Probably not. Sestak is all in favor of the neverending wars and keeping up the myth of al Qaeda and that they did 9/11. Finally getting rid of Specter is long overdue but replacing one warmonger with another is not really 'progress.'

In Kentucky, Rand Paul won round one for a trip to the Senate and the media is gushing over his grassroots support and how the 'tea party' is making an impact. That's the same 'tea party' that neocon/Israel first Sarah Palin is trying to claim as her own. Rand is playing the game to get elected in a conservative state and it  also remains to be seen how far he can eventually distance himself from those who will use him.

Rand could make a difference but going too far might be dangerous to his health. He could become the 'designated dissenter' in the Senate as his father is in the House with plenty of good talk but little getting accomplished as those around him subvert the actions needed to accomplish real 'change.'

The establishment may be reeling a little this morning but are not to be counted out. Big money, threats and blackmail are still the rule, not the exception.


The bottom line is still the bankers and how far their minions will go to maintain power. Replacing a few of the whores in Congress will not be enough.

Serial Liars




"I was confused when I stated I served in Vietnam. It must have been lack of oxygen in my brain. That's it, lack of oxygen due to the increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere."

"I urge the new Obama EPA to declare carbon dioxide a danger to human health and welfare."



Richard Blumenthal, the so called “Jewish Jack Kennedy,” has a problem. After being touted as a sure bet to take the retiring Chris Dodd’s Senate seat, he is scrambling with damage control after the NY Time's report on a slight little error in what he said was his Vietnam service record.
“We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,” Mr. Blumenthal said to the group gathered in Norwalk in March 2008. “And you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it — Afghanistan or Iraq — we owe our military men and women unconditional support.”

There was one problem: Mr. Blumenthal, a Democrat now running for the United States Senate, never served in Vietnam. He obtained at least five military deferments from 1965 to 1970 and took repeated steps that enabled him to avoid going to war, according to records.

The deferments allowed Mr. Blumenthal to complete his studies at Harvard; pursue a graduate fellowship in England; serve as a special assistant to The Washington Post’s publisher, Katharine Graham; and ultimately take a job in the Nixon White House.

In 1970, with his last deferment in jeopardy, he landed a coveted spot in the Marine Reserve, which virtually guaranteed that he would not be sent to Vietnam. He joined a unit in Washington that conducted drills and other exercises and focused on local projects, like fixing a campground and organizing a Toys for Tots drive.{more}
Jewish groups that were hot to trot in getting another one of their own in the Senate will try to spin this away but it should be too late.  What are they going to say, that it's a right wing conspiracy from the NY Times?

His Vietnam lie is bad enough but he was also caught in another one recently.
On MSNBC’s "Morning Joe", Blumenthal said, “I have never taken PAC money and I have rejected all special interest money because I have stood strong and have taken legal action against many of those special interests.

”Though Blumenthal denied he took PAC money, the Federal Election Commission website said Blumenthal took more than $220,000 in PAC money. {more}

Blumenthal is just another psychopathic serial liar. The Senate certainly doesn't need another one.







So that we won't be accused of only picking on Jewish Democrat liars, another creep is in the news.

This time it's a Republican 'Christian' congressman, a real family values guy who gets caught with his pants down and announces his retirement.


Saying he "sinned against God, my wife and my family by having a mutual relationship with a part-time member of my staff," Rep. Mark Souder, R-3rd, said Tuesday he will resign from Congress.

"I am so ashamed to have hurt those I love," he said. "I am so sorry to have let so many friends down, people who have fought so hard for me."  "I feel just awful."  "It is a nightmare. Can't believe it is happening" {more}

This is the guy who authored and championed the Aid Elimination Penalty that suspends eligibility for federal financial aid to college students convicted of smoking a little pot.
On February 9, 2007 Souder appeared as a guest on MSNBC's The Situation With Tucker Carlson. Souder was asked specifically as to why marijuana is of such focus with regard to anti-drug campaigns.

He said of today's marijuana plants "the destruction in your brain cells, is more like coke or crack than it is like the old time marijuana" in regard to the addictiveness and modern THC content.

Souder said that the high THC content of today's marijuana makes it much stronger than "the ditch weed" of the 1960s and 1970s. The congressman later went on to say "No drug user is a single drug user" and goes on to clarify that "a marijuana user is very seldom just a casual marijuana user", to which Carlson said he was wrong based upon users he knows.
Besides being known as 'family man,' Souder has always groveled to Israel.  Netanyahu must be sad today that his friend is gone but no need for Benny to worry, he still has hundreds more in Congress to rely on.

"Support for Israel is deeply rooted in biblical teaching. From start to finish, the Bible emphasizes the unique place of Israel and the Jewish people as the Chosen People of God.from the Souder house.gov site



Two serial liars down, many more to go .....

A Dangerous Precedent?


Few will argue that there are not sexually dangerous prisoners who should not see the light of day. Due to lax laws, lenient judges and a corrupt judicial system, all manner of criminals are let loose upon society after their sentences are over to continue their deviant ways.

But today's supreme court decision that federal officials can indefinitely hold inmates considered "sexually dangerous" after their prison terms are complete could be setting the stage for 'indefinite detention' and 'preventive detention' of prisoners of all sorts, including political ones.

Could this ruling eventually be applied and approved by the courts under the guise of 'predictive behavior'  for so called thought crimes and opposition to the status quo? Who would be the 'experts' that decide that even though a person's sentence is complete, they cannot be let out? The possibilities for abuse are many. To think that there aren't those in the federal government that would use these types of rulings for political repression would be naive.

The high court reversed a lower court decision that said Congress overstepped its authority in allowing indefinite detentions of {those} considered "sexually dangerous."

"The statute is a 'necessary and proper' means of exercising the federal authority that permits Congress to create federal criminal laws, to punish their violation, to imprison violators, to provide appropriately for those imprisoned and to maintain the security of those who are not imprisoned by who may be affected by the federal imprisonment of others," said Justice Stephen Breyer, writing the majority opinion.

President George W. Bush in 2006 signed the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act, which authorized the civil commitment of sexually dangerous federal inmates.

The act, named after the son of "America's Most Wanted" television host John Walsh, was challenged by four men who served prison terms ranging from three to eight years for possession of child pornography or sexual abuse of a minor. Their confinement was supposed to end more than two years ago, but prison officials said there would be a risk of sexually violent conduct or child molestation if they were released.

A fifth man who also was part of the legal challenge was charged with child sex abuse, but declared incompetent to stand trial.

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., ruled last year that Congress overstepped its authority when it enacted a law allowing the government to hold indefinitely people who are considered "sexually dangerous."

But "we conclude that the Constitution grants Congress legislative power sufficient to enact" this law, Breyer said.

Justice Clarence Thomas dissented, saying Congress can only pass laws that deal with the federal powers listed in the Constitution.

Nothing in the Constitution "expressly delegates to Congress the power to enact a civil commitment regime for sexually dangerous persons, nor does any other provision in the Constitution vest Congress or the other branches of the federal government with such a power," Thomas said.

Thomas was joined in part on his dissent by Justice Antonin Scalia.

Chief Justice John Roberts last year granted an administration request to block the release of up to 77 inmates at a federal prison in North Carolina. These were people whose prison terms for sex offenses were ending. The justice's order was designed to allow time for the high court to consider the administration's appeal.
The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act also establishes a national sex offender registry, increases punishments for some federal crimes against children and strengthens child pornography protections. Those provisions are not being challenged.

State laws allowing civil commitments of sex offenders also are unaffected.

The case is U.S. v. Comstock, 08-1224.



At the arguments in January, Solicitor General Elena Kagan {Supreme Court nominee} said the power to confine such prisoners was implicit in the government's duty "to run a responsible criminal justice system." The law aims "to make sure that sexually dangerous, mentally ill people don't fall through the cracks between federal custody and the re-establishment of state control," she said. {more}
Would Kagan be predisposed to call political dissent a mental illness if it suits her and her handlers agenda?

The ultimate agenda goes well beyond the sexually dangerous.

Now independent thinkers are considered diseased by psychiatry
The new edition {of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)} may include "disorders" like "oppositional defiant disorder", which includes people who have a pattern of "negativistic, defiant, disobedient and hostile behavior toward authority figures."{more}

A Visit From the Census Girl
















The encounter was very much like in this old photo.






It was odd that my wife had mentioned a couple of times in the last three days that the census people would be here soon. She wasn't going to answer the door if I wasn't here. It was my responsibility to talk to them according to her. That was because when I filled out the mail-in form all I answered was that 2 lived here. The rest of the answers were an N/A. Sure enough, the census representative showed up late this afternoon.

Another odd thing was that 'census girl' didn't want to know anything about our house, it wasn't on her list. She assumed we had sent back the questionnaire successfully. It was about the house next door which is a 110 year old frame home with no permanent electricity, no water and no bathroom or working septic system. It needs paint but has a good roof and a well kept yard but is nothing but a storage area and workshop.

I told her no one lived there and hadn't for over 15 years. She pressed a bit and said that it looked like a nice little place where someone could live.

I said,  "0 people live there and 2 people live here. That's the census."

She then asked if I would sign a form stating that there was no one living there to prove that she had been here.  I responded, "I don't mind telling you the truth about an unoccupied house but I'm not signing anything." I was nice about it and went on to say that last year another census worker came by taking front door GPS readings and that I had told him the same thing. For some reason the house must have been flagged for verification. I suppose it looks like a hideout for illegals or something.

The census lady was polite and nice and said that I didn't have to sign the form, thanked me for my time and left.

Hopefully that's the end of it. I've done my constitutional duty. The government knows how many live on the property and that is good enough.


The cost of the 2010 census is somewhere around $15 billion.

"The 2010 Census will be the biggest peacetime government mobilization in our nation's history."

Rahm Emanuel is responsible for overseeing the census. That means that nothing about it is in our best interest.

The New World Order Currency Crisis

I heard Phil Valentine, a local radio neocon shill say yesterday that the Greeks were selfish for not going along with the banker imposed measures to 'save their country.' Evoking the JFK message of "what you can do for your country," he and others like him are setting the stage for an austere future where 'we the people' are to be the ones who will not only pay but take the blame for not doing our part. Save the bankers, the politicians, the elite and maybe you will save yourselves will be continuing propaganda ploy.

Just as in Greece, many around the world will not fall for it. It will not be pretty.



US faces same problems as Greece, says Bank of England

A Great Reason to Reject Kagan for the Supreme Court ~ ADL Approval




I hate to link the Abe Foxman anti-American/anti-Constitution/Israel first/jewish first/diversity-minority manipulator/hate site ...  but perhaps it's important to point out that they wasted no time in supporting the current Solicitor General Elena Kagan as the Obama nominee for the Supreme Court.
ADL Statement on the Nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court
When the ADL supports or promotes anyone or anything it should be a call for the American public to step up in opposition.  That just seems like common sense to me.

Unfortunately common sense and honesty and what is best for our country is lacking in those who will 'debate' and vote for her confirmation. The smell of money and power and fear overrides all else.

Most of the rest of the country is in a fog and couldn't care less.

Just as planned.

Jeremy Scahill is a 9/11 "Truth" Denier

Scahill has done some good investigative reporting, especially in the area of exposing the mercenary group Blackwater, but as all reporters who get some name recognition and face time in the mainstream media he stops short when it comes to the bottom line of 9/11. In this video he stutters a little in his lies of Al Qaeda did it. He knows who pays his bills.

Jeremy .... how did Al Qaeda do this?
 

American Everyman continues the discussion in Jeremy Scahill is a Douche Bag.

Thanks Mom, you taught me that being against war was OK


As a child, as far back as I can remember, my mother was often dropping hints about the horrors of war.

As a young woman during World War II she saw classmates, friends and relatives who left one day never to return.

Her father was wounded in World War I and bore the scars for the rest of his life.

Marrying my dad, an Army Air Force WWII veteran, very soon after the war ended seemed to have solidified the emotions that only peace and the living were what really mattered.

She never glorified war nor condemned the policies of it. Few of that era were aware of the inner workings of the conflicts but many did innately perceive the disconnect between their religious and ethical upbringing and the deadly results of what was the common man fighting for the rich and the powerful.

The reasons for war were repeated and propagandized until the wars were justified in the minds of most but never enough to negate the fear that mothers carried with them of the potential loss of sons and husbands.

I think my mother's very real fear for her son and others was why she expressed only negativity for war. It was basically the only negative that she consistently expressed. It rubbed off on me.

Mother proved her support of my anti-war leanings when I was kicked out of high school twice during my senior year in 1970. Both times it was for making symbolic gestures against the Vietnam war and the Kent State killings by wearing a black arm band to school during national days of protest. A silent protest by only about a dozen of us that was extremely mild considering the times but to an authoritarian principal in a repressive school system, it was considered over the line.

To get back in school my mother had to come to the school with me and sit through a lecture from the principal. The second time there were even threats of  blackballing us from college with a bad reference.

Mother listened and nodded as the principal essentially said we were un-American and on the road to ruin. She didn't say a word. Later she did ask me to please not do anything like that again since there was only a couple of weeks until graduation and it would all be over. Privately she supported my anti-war views as it was what she had instilled in me.

A good mother does everything in their power to raise the kids to be good adults. Sometimes they teach us things that we carry with us the rest of our lives.

Like that it's OK to be against war and not to be afraid to speak up about it. And to think for yourself and not to fall for lies.

Thanks .....

Happy Mothers Day .....

Our Soldiers of Fortune Are Too Costly




Pay raises for the troops and soaring health-care costs are "eating us alive" says Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.


Health care alone is projected to cost the military $51 billion next year, nearly one-tenth of the Pentagon's budget, excluding the costs of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. {more}


Health care like this?

What the pentagon is essentially saying is that we can't afford to support the corporate welfare war machine and pay our troops a living wage and actually take care of them after they are maimed and psychologically damaged. The controlled AP even wants to eliminate some costs by pushing the agenda that many PTSD victims are fakers.'

Gates and the pentagon would probably prefer drafted slave labor soldiers left alone to their own devices after their 'tour of duty' is over. Living under a bridge and letting local services feed them until they eventually die.

There is a fix to all of this spending. End the wars and bring our troops home. Just say 'Hell No' to Israel and the war profiteers and the fraud of the 'war on terror.' We're not fighting for their interests anymore.

Just keep your kids from joining the military. There is no fortune in war for them.

Cleaning Up









Mayor Karl Dean of Nashville said the cost of damages from the weekend of record flooding will likely exceed $1 billion.

Nashville  drying out and cleaning up photos.



BP oil spill cost for the Deepwater Horizon clean-up could total at least $12.5 billion.


Meanwhile, the U.S.Congress is considering a bill to vote for it’s annual $3 Billion assistance to Israel’s IDF.

Money that doesn't exist except as forever debt to the Federal Reserve.

While tens of thousands of US citizens work to clean up the destruction that has and is occurring in our land and on our shores, Israel uses its influence to continue to clean out what is left in our pockets.

Isn't it time to take care of our own and force Israel pay for its own land theft and destruction of lives? Without our money perhaps it would stop.

The Warning





It doesn't take a great leap of faith to entertain the idea that the death of Sen. Paul Wellstone was no accident.

Besides the usual forms of coercion, bribes and blackmail, Wellstone's assassination sent a message, a warning, to all of Congress that going against the agenda and telling the truth about  certain 'events' that mold policy could cost them their lives.

That warning has been taken to heart.

None in Congress dare to speak about the hidden facts.

It's called self-preservation.




Although it can't be verified, a guest on the Kevin Barrett radio show tells a story that fits right in with what many people have been saying for years.
 US Senator Barbara Boxer: Wellstone assassination was "a warning"

Scholar-activist Four Arrows, co-author of American Assassination: The Strange Death of Senator Paul Wellstone, today revealed for the first time a reported conversation in which U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) confirmed that the Wellstone plane crash was an assassination, not an accident.

As Four Arrows recounted on today's edition of The Kevin Barrett Show (beginning somewhere around the 20 minute mark): a trusted friend of his, during a conversation with Sen. Boxer, was surprised when the Senator asked "are you a friend of Four Arrows?" The friend said yes. Boxer said "tell him he doesn't know how right he is. (The Wellstone assassination) was meant as a warning to all of us." Sen. Boxer went on to say that if asked, she would deny the statement.

Sen. Boxer, who other sources report has confidentially admitted that she knows 9/11 was an inside job, has publicly confirmed that she does not trust the 9/11 Commission version of events, specifically the official narrative of the alleged 9/11 hijackers. The following exchange took place between Senator Boxer and myself on Wisconsin Public Radio's program "Conversations with Kathleen Dunn" on December 5th, 2005 (click here for archive -- note that the text below is a summary, not a transcript):

Barrett: Senator Boxer, I’d like to thank you and Senator Feingold for hanging in there after 9/11...(Boxer: “You’re welcome.”) Now as you may know, Congressman Kurt Weldon has been screaming from the rooftops that we need a new 9/11 Able Danger investigation focusing on what US intelligence agencies knew about Mohammad Atta and when they knew it. Newsweek and other mainstream publications have written that Mohammad Atta was trained at the Foreign Officer’s school Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama. And Daniel Hopsicker’s book Welcome to Terrorland makes it clear that Hoffman Aviation in Venice Florida, where the so-called hijackers trained, was actually a CIA drug import facility—it was a flight school in name only. Now Lt. Colonel Anthony Shaffer has blown the whistle—he says he and his colleagues in military intelligence identified Atta as a terrorist in 2000, but they were gagged and ordered to “forget they had ever heard of Atta.” Are you among the 245 senators and representatives who have signed Congressman Weldon’s letter demanding a Congressional investigation into what US authorities knew about Atta prior to the 9/11 attacks?

Senator Boxer: That isn’t what the 9/11 Commission Report said—but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true. I haven’t seen Congressman Weldon’s letter yet, but...we need to pursue the truth about 9/11 wherever it leads. The truth should be the only priority. And we need the truth. My main focus now, though, is to end the war in Iraq.

According to Four Arrows, Sen. Boxer and other high-visibility people know that if they cross certain lines, they and/or their families will be assassinated. He offered this as a possible explanation of the reluctance of various well-known people, including Noam Chomsky, to speak the truth about 9/11.

Near the end of the show, Four Arrows suggested a "white armband" campaign for the 10th anniversary of 9/11, proposing that on that day, all those who do not believe the official version of events should wear a white handkerchief tied around their arm.

Aerial Views of Nashville and Franklin Tennessee Floods May 3, 2010

Many more videos at Nashville Flood.
Aerial scenes of  Nashville Area Flooding - The Tennessean

We had the opportunity today to make an over 200 mile round trip to top off the generator fuel tanks of emergency communications cell towers in the Harpeth River and Franklin areas. The towers were on both sides of the flooded areas in hill areas so we didn't see the worst flooding and damage around Franklin.

We did see a lot of destruction and very high water everywhere we went in three counties. Percentage wise, the majority of folks are OK but there's a lot of work to be done.

The question is who's going to pay for it? By the reports coming out many homeowners and small businesses did not have flood insurance as they were told they were not in a flood plain or just couldn't afford it. Just the cost of the infrastructure repair is incredible.


We spend close to a trillion dollars a year feeding the war profiteers.

We owe the Federal Reserve somewhere around 400 billion dollars a year in interest for their privilege of printing bogus money for us to fight fraudulent wars against terrorism in foreign lands ...  killing, destroying and looting  for power and profit.

If we have to spend our tax money, shouldn't it be right here at home where we need it. Healing our own people and land .....

I wonder what the cost per kill of a 'terrorist' is?

I bet that money would help rebuild a great number of lives ... right here at home.
