Repetition Rides Again

The repetitive babbling being transmitted daily from the tower only confirms that those that think they are in charge are getting desperate in pounding their agenda down our throats. They know that their latest round of deceptions is not going over that well.

Obama 'logic' on the continuing use of nuclear power plants on fault lines, on the oceans and rivers ...
It’s important to recognize that nuclear energy doesn’t emit carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.”
Much better to have plutonium spread around, don't you think?

Don't worry. It's all just a matter of numbers. The EPA is preparing to dramatically increase permissible radioactive releases in drinking water, food and soil after “radiological incidents.”  So unless you're going swimming in the reactor pool, the new limits should keep you safe.

No kidding, who would have thunk it?
President Obama has a signed a secret presidential finding authorizing covert operations to aid the effort in Libya where rebels are in full retreat despite air support from U.S. and allied forces, a source tells ABC News.
'setting up a legal framework for more robust activities in the future'
Legal framework .. like in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Gaza?  "Robust activities" ... don't you just love these new terms for murder and mayhem?

Wolfie Blitzer loves this.

Going too far for even the most gullible to believe  ...
Al Qaeda Planted 160 Nuke Bombs Across USA. Al-Qaeda Nuclear Scientists working in Dimona?  

9/11 Omission co-chairs are still babbling on to increase the centralized police state powers. Their backtracking and saying they were deceived by the Pentagon and others does not fly. They are still criminal co-conspirators.
Lee Hamilton:  "The terrorist false flag threat will be with us far into the future, demanding that we be ever vigilant."

Tom Kean: "Alarming development" of "self-radicalization" of U.S. citizens and residents patsies and scapegoats.
"Al-Qaeda CIA/Mossad and its allies continue to have the intent and the reach to kill dozens or even hundreds of Americans in a single attack," "There is a high risk of attacks, but they will likely be smaller."
Given these co-liars track record, could that really mean another likely 'big one?'

Bomb Belarus Now! They are trading with Iran.
As usual, Joe Lieberman leads the tough talk for Israel against Iran sanction breakers and includes China and Russia as those who are not helping the cause of his real homeland.
McCain and Lieberman babble on about Syria. What's good for Israel again ...

Massive teacher layoffs while we rush headlong into more war.  Johnny can't read but hey, the military can educate him in the fine art of shooting Muslims and becoming cannon fodder.

Ben Bernanke keeps repeating that surging prices for food and fuel won’t wind up breaking the cost of living for Americans. Of course not. For every dollar more you pay for bread and gas, the cost of a big screen TV goes down by about the same amount. You see, it all balances out. 

Chaim Witz  (Israeli-born Gene Simmons) gets more unwarranted jewish media face time and says of those bands and musicians who boycott Israel ...
“They’re fools.” 
Like those who have bought Kiss records, concert tickets, lunch boxes, etc., eh Gene. Has there every been a band that sucked any more than Kiss?

Closer to home the repetition is focusing on one certain aspect.
Have homeland security and FEMA been reading too much Edgar Cayce on the New Madrid Fault or do they know something?

FEMA New Madrid National Level Exercise 2011 (NLE 11), May 16-19

Predictive programing,  fear mongering, justifying the large FEMA budgets?   Underwater body bags need to be procured?

Soon to be new naval and commercial shipping port  in Kansas City? Maybe that NAFTA superhighway is going to come in handy west of the new waterway?

Diane Sawyer got in on the New Madrid talk tonight calling the area the most dangerous place in our country.

Watch as they continue repeating the New Madrid danger.    ... just in case they have the chance to say "I told you so."

Oh No, Joe Bageant is gone ... 1946-2011

After a vibrant life, Joe Bageant died yesterday {March 26} following a four-month struggle with cancer. He was 64. Joe is survived by his wife, Barbara, his three children, Timothy, Patrick and Elizabeth, and thousands of friends and admirers. He is also survived by his work and ideas.

Another “American” Hero gone …

Bageant Moves On

I considered Joe to be the best 'southern' writer of his generation. Even if you didn't agree with all of his viewpoints, he always put a smile on your face.  He was one of those guys who in his healthy times would answer his emails and was as down to earth in his communications as he was in his writings.

His essays and books remain required reading. Maybe one day we'll see some of his work on the silver screen.

Joe, you will be missed .....

When CNN Comes to Town

CNN and Soledad O'Brien once again puts Murfreesboro Tennessee in the spotlight with more on the mosque debate/diversion/psyops with a Sunday night, March 27 showing of  "Unwelcome: The Muslims Next Door."  

"We focused on both sides," said CNN's Soledad. 

I doubt that Soledad will put very much focus on who funded the court action against building the mosque. Connecting the dots in this divide and conquer saga reveals zionist necon manipulations. Frank Gaffney and the Center for Security Policy played a role. 'Christian' zionist groups chipped in. I'm sure other zionist led organizations had a hidden hand in the money and maneuverings but kept a very low profile. The mosque opposition lawyers refused to talk about who is paying them.

CNN even has an "educator and student guide" with before and after viewing discussion questions. No questions though on how this story is a classic example of social engineering and manufactured enemies for neverending war.

In her interviews with the duped and disturbed mosque and Muslim opponents, Soledad  passed on the opportunity to ask them these questions ...
Don't you folks know that 9/11 was a false flag orchestrated by criminal elements of the U.S. government and the Israeli Mossad with great assistance from all of the main stream media in the deception and cover-up, including my very own CNN? Why can't you understand that it wasn't Muslims that attacked us, that it was an 'inside job?' Doesn't that make your Islamophobia and mosque opposition a moot point?
Soledad likes her job so she won't deviate from the official line  Contrived sensationalism sells. It's what Soledad and CNN do.

More background on the Murfreesboro mosque story.

Game Plans

Just because you've got the wild cheerleaders doesn't mean your game plan is secure ...

March madness is not just for basketball anymore. We've noticed that this month. But just like basketball, 'winning' endeavors for control of this big round ball we live on have to have preparation. Ya gotta have a game plan. Sad as it may be for the now dominate 'team,' game plans often fail.

The most famous game plan is surely the Protocols. Now before you cry 'forgery' and 'antisemitism' let's play a mental game and replace jews and zion with "the little green genies of Granada,"  or any other name you want to attribute to the writings. It's still a cookbook. There's the recipes. Tweak and twist them to fit the times and technology but the guidelines are there and if it's going to be cooked up just right you don't deviate too far from the basic recipe.

PNAC had a game plan. So far so good if you're on their side.  Still, when you hand out advance copies of what you're planning to do, sooner or later the opposition catches on. They know your moves, they tell others. The only thing missing is the teamwork and the specific actions in a counter game plan. Divided teams always lose. That's why I see 'our team' coming together. It's of necessity.

Folks like Visible and Timster are in synch in expressing their thoughts that the cabal of death dealers are going down and that it won't be easy or pretty. It's the kind of thing we need to keep repeating and reminding ourselves of so we don't lose sight of what we think needs to pass. Positive visualization is essential if you are a 'gamer.'  

Our opposition at times likes to full court press. Line to line pressure. They add the in your face arrogance and smack talk to try and intimidate us. The media touts their invincibility but they have that worried look on their face. The refs never even call a foul on them so that makes our offense fluid and innovative. Even though they contest every shot, we still get them off.  Our shot percentage is getting better. Once our opposition gets the 'deer in the headlights' look  in their eyes, we know we're finding their weaknesses. It's coming.


There's no excuse for the killing for sport in Afghanistan by the dumb hicks, the grunts of war who in a sane world would have known better but what about the war criminals who sent them there?  That's not how things work, so far. The little pawns go to jail. The big ones are still counting their money.

Prepare to hide your babies Libyans. The Marines are just off your shores.
"The ability to launch these and other missions directly from naval vessels illustrates the unique and valuable capacity of the Navy/Marine Corps team called 'sea-basing'", said Captain Timothy Patrick, spokesman for II Marine Expeditionary Force. "Having these forces embarked aboard amphibious ships means that at any time we can execute a variety of tactical missions with little or no footprint on foreign territory."

On a local note regarding people going down is finally the news of University of Tennessee basketball coach Bruce Pearl, once the most prominent jewish name in collegiate sports, getting fired for (drum roll...) lying and cheating. Certainly not the first and won't be the last coach fired for ethics violations in the hypocritical world of college athletics but the demise of this crying clown brought a smile to my face.

He received a very good severance package to keep his mouth shut. No anti-semetic charges from him yet but his wife did have this to say a few months ago in typical 'victim' behavior ...
"Now I know of two jewish men who have  been crucified."

In case you've missed it, Facts Not Fairies has been posting a lot on Al Jazeera as a tool of the zionists. Is there any major media that is not? Silly question.

The new Anthony Lawson video, Holocaust, Hate Speech and Were the Germans so Stupid?, has been posted in many places but if you haven't seen it spend thirty minutes for the educational talking points presented and the grin you get from knowing that some messages are not yet censored.

Update 3-31-11 ... youtube found it necessary to remove the Lawson video. Vimeo for now has it.

Holocaust, Hate Speech & Were the Germans so Stupid? from SomberImperil on Vimeo.

Nothing like a map to know where you're going.

I see that  General Carter F. Ham, Commander, U.S. Africa Command, is the head guy of the military intervention in Libya. To think that he is only a few days younger than me and also an Aquarius causes me ponder just how those born in America at about the same time have taken such different paths.  The definition of success is in the eye of the beholder ...

Kill Teams and Anti-War Kooks

Spiegel Online report on "The Kill Team"

'Trophy' photos from Afghanistan are very similar to those the redneck hunters take to show off their deer kill.

No surprises here. Soldiers brainwashed to see their 'kills' as sub-human or animals will continue the war crimes as long as we send them to criminal wars.

Apologists are already saying that the release of 3 photos out of close to 4,000 photos and videos that Spiegel 'obtained' will harm the war cause. All we can say is "we hope so."

Spiegel is a partner with Wikileaks so no telling what kind of psyops game is going on. Who benefits from these photo leaks? Spiegel is certainly not doing this as an anti-war statement.

Speaking of anti-war, I was going through the radio channels today seeing what was being said about Libya and ran into one of our local neocon war whore talking heads who used the words "anti-war kooks" a least 10 times in about a 20 minute segment. That would many of us he's talking about. Those who don't go along with the program of kill them over there before they kill us here.

I'm sort of proud to be a kook.

Anyone hear a sermon today on our warmongering, banker, zionist controlled government? I didn't think so ... Most preachers don't play that ...

It's a monumental failure in our 'Christian' nation for the vast majority of churches not to speak out against the lies and war crimes of our government and its controllers. Fear of offending, scared of getting into issues that are potentially divisive but are affecting their flock, still stuck on that misinterpreted  'render unto Caesar' thing, very silent on the fraud of war and killing for profit but never afraid to pass the plate.

No matter what you may think of Louis Farrakhan, there is no denying he speaks his mind. A little slow in coming to terms with what Obama really is but he's getting there.  Christians should take a page from this 'Muslim' and move it in their own direction.

Mr. Farrakhan passes the 9/11 litmus test.

A Toast ...

It's a good night for the war machine ...
Big $$$$$$$

There are reports of many dead Libyans as Raytheon draws first blood and gets to celebrate with the $$$$$$$$$$ news of some 114 Tomahawk missiles that did what they were built to do ... blow up.

Reports vary but each missile supposedly costs us around $560k. Over $60 million of  product used up in maybe a couple of hours.  Only the beginning.  Crank up those manufacturing lines. Americans, get out your checkbook. Time to replenish the supply line.

Raise your champagne glass and sing along ...   ♫ 
You've gotta use these armaments up

Or there will be an inventory problem and production will slow down

Use these armaments up

But not on me ... or my family ... it's gotta be on someone else
Just use these armaments up ... I  know you can
We'll make more ...

The Full Moon Madness of Man

What It Is, What It Means

Supermoon - March 19, 2011

Not much we can do about the moon and whatever effects it may have on the earth. It even effects our mental states ... anyone else have problems sleeping during these full moon phases?

But surely there must be something we can do about what we could call the perpetual 'full moon madness of man.'

Nuclear power has always been seen as 'madness,' hasn't it?  We discussed it awhile, went along with what those with money and power were doing and then it was back to our regular TV shows.  Nuclear, in all of its forms, was one of the elitist dreams for control. It was about centralized electrical power to the people at an ever increasing price. Trap the public into it with no economically viable alternative. Profits always trump safety when those who rule can get by with it. The "Manhattan Project" for the good of humanity never came. Still, some have 'hope.'

What's with this story of who installed the security system at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant? If you haven't heard, Haaretz tells us it was the Israeli company Magna BSP that is based in  Dimona. One speculation is that it  might have been part of an Israeli intel operation aimed at demonstrating the power of Israel’s stuxnet computer virus. We don't know yet.  Maybe to send a message to Japan to get with the nwo program or to set back a competitor? Maybe it was just an accident waiting to happen that got a nudge from earth changes?

One might think that with Japan's technology prowess they could have supplied their own security cameras at their nuke plants but no, it was outsourced to Israel.

Given that Israeli firms were in charge of security at the airports on 9/11, at the Amsterdam airport where they let the 'underwear' bomber get on without a passport, Russia's Domodedovo Airport 24th January 2011 when bombs blew off,  Amdocs putting 'backdoor' spying software into most of the phone systems in the U.S., Jonathan Pollard and the multitude of other Israeli spies arrested but most let go, etc. etc.,  one might assume that those in charge of sensitive areas would think twice about Israeli security.

No, apparently there's so few who have the 'expertise' of the Israelis that we give them the run of the house.
An Israeli company, Magal Security Systems-owned in part by the government of Israel-is in charge of security for the most sensitive nuclear power and weapons storage facilities in the United States.

Not only does Magal provide security for American nuclear facilities, but it also does likewise for most major nuclear facilities in Western Europe and Asia. In addition, the Israeli firm also provides security for Chicago's O'Hare Airport and, for the last fifteen years, has kept watch on the Queen of England's famed Buckingham Palace in London. What's more, Magal provides security for 90% of the American prisons that utilize electronic systems. Magal brags that its other clients around the globe include: borders, airports, industrial sites, communication centers, military installations, correctional facilities, government agencies, VIP estates and residences, commercial buildings and storage yards.{more}
Magal  has installations at thousands of sites worldwide. They hide the specifics. Click  here  for a reference list of customers. Again, think 'backdoor.'

Then there's still all of this madness of HAARP talk.  'Use it or lose it' comes to mind.

Another part of the madness here lately was the predictive programming  of $5 a gallon gas. We were media inundated with this idea of paying more beginning in late Dec. 2010. Almost a month before the protests in Egypt began and before things heated up in Tunisia. With the worldwide economy in a tailspin, demand could not account for gas price increases. It would have to be 'events.'  Programing us to accept the spike in oil costs and all of the related price increases helps to keep us in line. It does seem that some people were very good at anticipating 'events.'

Gaddafi has certainly played his role in keeping the oil prices high. Just as planned or are all sides winging it as they go?

Obama's getting tough now, putting on a real warmongering face. He has issued a "non-negotiable ultimatum" for Gaddafi to accept an immediate ceasefire, pull back from Libyan rebel strongholds and permit humanitarian assistance – or face the full onslaught of UN-endorsed air strikes.

Sending in the bombs should be worth at least an additional 50 cents a gallon increase, you think?

I don't know if Obama will be allowed to serve a second term or if he is to be 'sacrificed' to another designated winner. I do know that unless things change very quickly the madness of  having to gain the favor of Israel and their sycophants in order to be their puppet will continue. Sara Palin is making her obligatory trip to Israel.   Maybe they'll give her a new U.S. zionist pin to wear? 

So much madness, so little time .....

Catastrophism and Collective Amnesia

Time I am, destroyer of the worlds, and I have come to engage all people. With the exception of you, all the soldiers here on both sides will be slain.

       Could it be that the collective unconscious of humanity has always been driven by the 'memories' of the natural progressive cycles of catastrophic earth changes? It might help explain our preoccupation with 'the end of the world.' 

I pulled out my old copies of Immanuel Velikovsky's "Worlds in Collision" and "Earth in Upheaval" for a refresher in the archeological and mythological evidence of what has been termed catastrophism. Not the definitive answer to some questions but interesting and a part of of hidden history. Other theories are out there too, so it's best to make up one's own mind based on knowledge and intuition or maybe just settle for the old standby of  "I Don't Know."

The memory of the cataclysms was erased, not because of lack of written traditions, but because of some characteristic process that later caused entire nations, together with their literate men, to read into these traditions allegories or metaphors where actually cosmic disturbances were clearly described. {more
Embedded in our collective psyche are memories of catastrophic events of terrestrial and cosmic natures; deep down we all “remember” times when the skies were darkened, the earth rumbled, bolts of lightning illuminated the heavens. Humanity has been here long enough to have witnessed countless displays of “theomachy” or the “war of the gods” which ancient rulers sought to emulate. Immanuel Velikovsky believed that humanity as a whole had been so thoroughly traumatized by the succession of these events that modern man’s overall disposition was that of a mental patient who had no recollection of what had happened, but who behaved irrationally and even self-destructively in the process of repeatedly “acting out” or re-creating those traumatic events. {more}

We must remember that Velikovsky was a zionist and that some of his theories are skewed in that direction, especially concerning the alleged Hebrew exodus. He's a piece of the puzzle that does not reflect the whole picture.
Immanuel Velikovsky and Pole Shift 
The Immanuel Velikovsky Archive 
Immanuel Velikovsky: Pole Shift - video

The world is full of speculation on major events and the lead up to them.  Although it may be inevitable that catastrophic earth changes will happen, we don't actually know the timeline. In the meantime, we still have our lives to live and we still have the obligation to put a stop to the very real and very dangerous people who wish to rule by force, fear and deception and in some cases destroy us even before the forces of nature get their chance.  

Collective amnesia may be the least of our problems.

Fukushima Unit 4
The Japan situation, "fear on the ground" as ABC news calls it, seems to be leading us into a situation the media thrives on, continual fear that may be sometimes justified, and stories of heroes. The "Fukushima 50 ..." 

An unnamed American official spells out 'our' position on the "suicide mission to save Japan."
"We are all-out urging the Japanese to get more people back in there to do emergency operation there, that the next 24 to 48 hours are critical."

"They need to stop pulling out people—and step up with getting them back in the reactor to cool it. There is a recognition this is a suicide mission." 
Monsters live among us. 

Old grudges ... new ones born every minute

In some nice timing while our attention is focused on Japan ... Raymond Davis is freed.

Acquitted of double murder charges and released by court after a deal to pay ‘blood money’ to victims’ families was reached.

It is interesting times indeed.

Forward We Stumble

Family Life by Tanya Miller

As we stumble along our paths there are no doubts that we are encountering degenerative elements who with every move are attempting to see to it that we are the ones that fall.

War is a proven control mechanism for the empire and the degenerate General Petraeus tries to soften us up for a difficult summer ahead in Afghanistan.
"Many intelligence estimates say that it will be as violent or perhaps even more violent" than 2010, Petraeus said at his office in Kabul.
"They will come back in force. There is some concern that there will be sensational attacks that could be indiscriminate in nature," he warned.
Sensational attacks? Another good reason to never leave. If need be we'll create our own 'new sensations.' As Peter Chamberlin points out in "If the Script Calls for Credible 'Bad Guys,' Then Create Some:"
The best-laid plans of America’s sickest minds are unraveling before their bloodshot evil eyes. The further the CIA mind-twisters stretch in trying to make their crazy “militant Islamist” scheme work somewhere in the Muslim world, the more the edges ravel on the magnificiant whole-cloth of lies that they have so lovingly woven for us. We should all be allowed to smile just a little when the CIA’s dumbest “mind-fuck” plans fail, if it were not for the fact that they have gambled our futures on their plots.
The great thing about “al-Qaeda” is that they are the terrorist group that has something to offer for anyone who needs a patsy to fulfill a task, whether that be to cover a political assassination of an annoying individual, a military incursion into an innocent country, the suppression of national civil rights, or even the use of martial law tactics against unarmed citizens. {more}

Then there's this creepy CONgressman Peter King who wants us to see a Muslim 'terrorist' behind every tree and make sure the police state rolls on. Visible nails the clown and gives us the real reason why these degenerates do as they are told ... blackmail.
The reason that Peter King is holding these hearings is the same reason that Guantanamo is all over the news and that is to obfuscate the information that is revealed in places like this, in order to counteract against the information revealed in places like this. What you get is a bunch of nonsense about Muslim terror percentages and for that you need to send in SWAT teams of TSA agents to hand rape people in Thobes and Hijabs, or anything really. You get to hear the name, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, over and over and over and over again, juxtaposed with 9/11, which he had nothing to do with because 9/11 was done by Neo-Pharisees and corrupt members of the American and Crown Colony fascistos. {more}
To try and prop up the King hate fest, some in the media will resort to the CIA/Mossad talking points of al-Qaeda's American-bred leadership. Since there's no law against the media lying to the public, these people have no problem calling themselves journalists.

The Islamophobia hearings can be viewed here if you're into self torture.

While King moves his blackmailed lying lips, Hillary Clinton 'testified' before before a House Appropriations Subcommittee seeking 'mo money.' Her claws scratch the surface of deceit while spewing her 'excitement' of the developments in the Middle East, our national interests and "putting al-Qaeda on the run." The state department's $47 billion, or is it $59.5 billion using some slight of hand, budget includes exceptional wartime overseas contingency operations. Temporary of course. A good return on the investment in blood and treasure she proclaims.

Moving right along in the land of the degenerates, we come to one of the most despicable of so called humans, Abe Foxman. Whenever this fat genetically challenged mammal comes up for air to call for an apology, you know he is attacking some sort of truth. Otherwise he would leave it alone. Nodding in agreement to the statement that jews run the media, as former NPR money beggar Ron Schiller did, gives Foxman the opportunity to attack.
“No matter the circumstances, raising false stereotypes about Jewish control of the media is dangerous and inappropriate. Mr. Schiller’s remarks were offensive and he should acknowledge his mistake and apologize.” {more}

The continuing degenerate behavior of Israel will take much more cash from the U.S. Israeli blackmail once again for the Palestinian peace process as well as for what Israel calls themselves ... a 'stabilizer in such a turbulent region.' It sounds like a joke but the punch line never comes.

The Israeli military continues to pound the Iran drum. This time it's that Iran is supplying direct assistance to Gaza including a "very big arsenal" of rockets that can strike deep inside Israel. One might wonder why Hamas doesn't use them instead of the 'bottle rocket' supposedly fired yesterday into an Israeli open field. No injuries or damage but an excuse for Israel to drop a few bombs on several targets in the Strip.

Israeli zionist propaganda is pushed into middle school 'education' here in the U.S. Some parents take exception to the lies being taught their kids and are calling out the system on it. It's something to applaud as we stumble forward.

The stumbling of America is not by chance but by design. Now it's a major push for the decimation of the middle class in Wisconsin and then it will be on to the rest of the country.
A corporate asset-grab not seen since robber baron capitalism.

But who is one to steal from? Most wealth in history has been acquired either by armed conquest of the land, or by political insider dealing, such as the great US railroad land giveaways of the mid 19th century.
So Walker's war is not only against the Democrats and labour, it is against Wisconsin's Progressive Era institutions. His policy threatens to pauperise the state and deal a coup de grace to Progressive Era institutions and impoverish the state's middle class. Contra John Maynard Keynes's gentle suggestion of "euthanasia of the rentier", it is the middle class that is being euthanised – throughout North America and Europe. {more}

One Half of the Sideshow

The music for the moment is silent ...

My good friend and musical compadre Mikey is right now in a precarious place. He's been hospitalized for over two weeks and was just moved to St. Thomas Hospital in Nashville where tests have indicated and the doctors are now saying that there is an urgent need for brain surgery to remove a tumor to relieve the massive headaches and vomiting that have caused him to lose thirty pounds. At 52 years old and with no health insurance, the predicament seems overwhelming. The good news is that St. Thomas doesn't appear to be concerned with who will pay and is doing everything they possibly can, unlike Vanderbilt Hospital who refused to admit him.

Mikey and I have been playing music together for around twenty years.with various other musicians but mainly the last several years just the two of us in our near weekly jam sessions that we have always called therapy. Our motto was that we were 'happy amateurs.' 

The name of this blog was actually taken from what we dubbed ourselves ... the 'sideshow.'

It's been hard to concentrate on the 'big picture' with all of this going on. It goes to show that individual plights trump everything else.

I'll be taking a bit of time off from my ramblings here and do what I can to help he and his family through this difficult time and to reassure Mikey that he has friends who love him.

If you are so inclined, please offer up a prayer, thought or meditation.

The Missing Factor in the American Protests ~ Global Zionism

art by David Dees

via Artists for 9/11 Truth and
WTC Demolition

Somewhat lost in the standoff between Wisconsin governor Walker/Koch brothers and union supporters are the kids. As if we didn't already have a problem with the 'deliberate dumbing down of America,' students are the pawns in what is quickly becoming a contrived national issue that is a diversion away from more pressing and ultimately more important concerns.

Also MIA is what Richard Edmondson calls the  “the global Zionist factor” in the controversy that is affecting all sides.
Last Saturday saw a flurry of “Save the American Dream” protests around the country in support of workers in Wisconsin who have maintained a vigil at the state capital in protest against an anti-union bill being pushed by the state’s governor. The spin-off solidarity protests, some of which drew several thousands of people, were held in all 50 states, in locales like Columbus, Ohio, Tallahassee, Florida, Lansing, Michigan, New York and Los Angeles. However, there appears to have been little if any talk or discussion—either at these smaller protests or the main event in Madison, Wisconsin, which drew an estimated 70,000-120,000 people—about the Zionist lobby or its adverse impact on daily life in the United States.

There are any number of reasons why average Americans, and especially members of public employee unions, might want to be concerned about this. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, for instance, and the trillions spent there, along with the billions given each year to Israel, inevitably mean less money for domestic needs such as public education. But even beyond monetary considerations is the corrupting and degenerative effect the Israel lobby has on American political life. With a long history, going back several decades, of pouring money into elections to defeat officials who advocated America adopt a more balanced position in its foreign policy, the Lobby has in effect coarsened and debased public affairs and government in America.

Of course the protesters in Wisconsin are in a difficult position. Many people involved in the protests are Jewish. Start drawing connections to Israel and you risk having the entire coalition fall apart. This is not to say such connections aren’t being made in the wider American labor movement as a whole. They are. A January 10, 2010 story on the website includes a quote from Kentucky school teacher Sharon Wallace, who had just then returned from Egypt where she had participated in one of two convoys attempting to break the Gaza blockade. “Palestinians,” she says, “are being exploited by the same entities that are exploiting U.S. workers.” The story goes on to add of Wallace:
She and a small but growing band of U.S. unionists—some of whom are Jewish—are fighting to educate fellow members and mobilize their unions behind a global call to pressure Israel with a boycott, divestment, and sanctions.  
They face substantial barriers to winning union support: Activists say leaders of U.S. unions still seem enamored with the myth that Israel is a pro-labor government. In an October speech at the Jewish Labor Committee, AFL-CIO President Rich Trumka opposed international efforts to boycott Israel, suggesting that opposition to Israeli policy was anti-Semitism in disguise.
As would seem to be indicated by the example of Trumka—who has more recently made fiery speeches in Wisconsin—getting labor leaders to recognize the threat of global Zionism is going to be a sticky business. This is complicated even more by the fact that the U.S. labor movement and the Zionist state are intricately intertwined by means of investments that unions have made in state of Israel bonds.

The beam that is in thine own eye

I took a short sidetrip to Murfreesboro Tennessee and paid a visit to the Rutherford County Sheriff's office where I got to see what is supposed to be a 1.5 ton steel beam from the 9/11 demolition of WTC 1.

The artifact, as it's called, was unloaded just off the parking lot yesterday and is now open to the public with no waiting lines. We took the opportunity to take a few photos and to also touch it.
The artifact will be displayed in a permanent monument as a “visual reminder of 9-11. The memorial will be a constant reminder of the horrific incident of 9-11 and a constant reminder the law enforcement officers and firefighters in New York City endured to help the innocent. It will be a day that will live in the hearts of those there and who watched it on TV.”
It's funny that most of the steel from the WTC was shipped off to China but that they did keep a very small portion of it. These beams are part of the not so easy to come by pieces that are being doled out to those who will incorporate them into what will be 'official story' memorials, several of which should be ready for the 10th anniversary.

The Port Authority, which built and owned the Trade Center complex, decides on the government agencies and non-profit organizations that get artifacts. Court approval is required, since the pieces are still considered crime-scene evidence. Requests must be on proper letterhead, and memorial sketches must be submitted. Communities can't charge an admission fee and must pay to transport the artifact. 

Once those requirements are met, communities are given the artifacts on a first-come, first-serve basis.

It's no coincidence that Murfreesboro got a beam and a memorial. Middle Tennessee has been designated as as a 'hot spot' for perpetuating the meme of "Muslims are the enemy." We've had the Mosque issue getting national attention and now we're seeing a state legislature attempt to felonize something or the other about Muslims and Sharia law. The local news is incorporating images of the burning and exploding towers into their coverage

The law will not pass. This is just an opportunity to get more demonetization of Muslims into the media, stir the pot, because without it the war on humanity might have a more difficult time. The perps so far have gotten by with the lies of 'Muslims did 9/11' but they have to keep trying to reinforce those lies in the face of an awakening population.

These Tennessee "Sharia' lawmakers are being 'influenced' and are most likely having their bills written by the Center for Security Policy. This would be our old buddy, zionist neocon PNAC prick Frank Gaffney, who is pulling some strings and spreading some money around.

To me the beams seem symbolic of the old story of how we're always trying to pick out the speck in the eyes of those around us while having a beam stuck in ours.

The beams blind us but you know what ... they can be removed.
