Bill Would Give President Emergency Control of Internet

Internet companies and civil liberties groups were alarmed this spring when a U.S. Senate bill proposed handing the White House the power to disconnect private-sector computers from the Internet.

They're not much happier about a revised version that aides to Sen. Jay Rockefeller, a West Virginia Democrat, have spent months drafting behind closed doors. CNET News has obtained a copy of the 55-page draft of S.773 (excerpt), which still appears to permit the president to seize temporary control of private-sector networks during a so-called cybersecurity emergency.

The new version would allow the president to "declare a cybersecurity emergency" relating to "non-governmental" computer networks and do what's necessary to respond to the threat. Other sections of the proposal include a federal certification program for "cybersecurity professionals," and a requirement that certain computer systems and networks in the private sector be managed by people who have been awarded that license.

http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-10320096-38.html

With a few amendments, perhaps introduced in later bills, or via executive decree, we might find the President authorised to shut down ANY internet linked computer for reasons of "national security."

FBI Loses Appeal of $101.7m Verdict

A federal appeals court upheld yesterday a landmark verdict for four men framed by the FBI in a gangland slaying, although the appellate judges said the $101.7 million damage judgment awarded by a lower court was “at the outer edge of the universe of permissible awards.’’

The US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit said the 2007 damage judgment to the families of Peter J. Limone, Joseph Salvati, Louis Greco, and Henry Tameleo, believed to be the largest of its kind nationally, was considerably higher than any of the three appellate judges would have ordered.

“But when we take into account the severe emotional trauma inflicted upon the scapegoats,’’ the appeals court wrote of the wrongly imprisoned men, “we cannot say with any firm conviction that those awards are grossly disproportionate to the injuries sustained.’’

Limone, now 75, of Medford, spent more than 33 years in prison as a result of his wrongful conviction in the 1965 murder. Salvati, now 76, of the North End, was in prison for more than 29 years. The other two men, Greco and Tameleo, died in prison after decades of imprisonment.

FDIC List of Problem Banks Surges, Putting Reserve Fund at Risk

The U.S. added 111 lenders to its list of “problem banks,” a jump that suggests rising bank failures may force the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. to deplete a reserve fund that shrank 40 percent this year.

A total of 416 banks with combined assets of $299.8 billion failed the FDIC’s grading system for asset quality, liquidity and earnings in the second quarter, the most since June 1994, the Washington-based FDIC said in a report today. Regulators didn’t identify companies deemed “problem” banks.

The U.S. has taken over 81 banks this year, including Guaranty Financial Group Inc. in Texas and Colonial BancGroup Inc. in Alabama, amid the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.

WACLA Delivers Scientific Proof Of TREASON To Members Of Congress And Other D.C. Players

Dear Honorable Congress Person,

We the People, in order to restore rule of law and accountability to our Republic, respectfully insist that you, as an elected representative, squarely face the facts concerning the events of September 11, 2001 and the implications thereof.

It is our moral and civic duty to entrust to you facts and scientific analyses in the form of peer-reviewed, published scientific papers that clearly and conclusively prove thousands of our fellow human beings and citizens were murdered in controlled and criminal demolitions on September 11, 2001.

Plausible deniability of these facts and evidence is no longer possible.

If you fail to acknowledge and act immediately and decisively on this evidence, then your inaction will constitute misprision of treason in the least, outright treason at worst. The time is now to fulfill your oath to the Constitution and stand tall in the face of the corruption of our Republic. We the People stand with you.

Pursuant to U.S. Code, Title 18, Part I, Chapter 115

§ 2381. Treason

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

And § 2382. Misprision of Treason

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States and having knowledge of the commission of any treason against them, conceals and does not, as soon as may be, disclose and make known the same to the President or to some judge of the United States, or to the governor or to some judge or justice of a particular State, is guilty of misprision of treason and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than seven years, or both.

Sincerely,
WeAreChangeLA

Every effort needs to be taken so that a criminal investigation is initiated. I would prefer to see an open Grand Jury inquiry rather than something cooked up by the crooked members of Congress. In the rub, if these Congressional members fail to act on such evidence, then they make themselves complicit in the crime.

El Baradei Foes Leak False and Misleading Stories to Pressure His Stance on Iran

Western officials leaked stories to the Associated Press and Reuters last week aimed at pressuring the outgoing chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Mohamed ElBaradei, to include a summary of intelligence alleging that Iran has been actively pursuing work on nuclear weapons in the IAEA report due out this week.

The aim of the pressure for publication of the document appears to be to discredit the November 2007 U.S. National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on the Iranian nuclear programme, which concluded that Iran had ended work on nuclear weapons in 2003.

The story by Reuters United Nations correspondent Louis Charbonneau reported that “several” officials from those states had said the IAEA has “credible information” suggesting that the U.S. intelligence estimate was “incorrect”.
------------------------------------------
What the anti-ElBaradei coalition is now demanding, as Charbonneau’s report confirms, is that ElBaradei attach a report prepared by the IAEA safeguards department which reflects the slant of the quartet and Israel on the issue, as an “annex” to the coming report.

What AP and Reuters failed to report, however, is that there has long been a deep division within the IAEA between those who support the “alleged studies” documents, led by safeguards department chief Olli Heinonen, and those who have remained sceptical about their authenticity.

The doubts of the sceptics were reinforced, moreover, when new evidence came to light last year suggesting that some of the key documents were fabricated or doctored to support the accusation that Iran was working on nuclear weapons.
http://dprogram.net/2009/08/26/elbaradei-foes-leak-stories-to-force-his-hand-on-iran/

There is a huge effort underway to try and start a war with Iran. El Baradei earlier pointed out that the documents on Iraq's alleged nuclear weapons program were not authentic.

Propaganda about Iran must also be challenged in the media, at every point, so we can avoid another unnecessary war.

Spread this story online and email your local papers plus TV with this information.
Stop the war !!

Military-Industrial Complex Prison Economy: On the Edge with Max Keiser & Alex Jones

Alex talks with Max Keiser about the military industrial complex prison economy and how martial law is being implemented.



http://www.prisonplanet.com/military-industrial-complex-prison-economy-on-the-edge-with-max-keiser-alex-jones.html

Alex Jones reminds me of James Brown's character out of The Blues Brothers. For all of you out there who need a dose of in-your-face inspiration, go visit infowars.com and listen to his radio show.

I also like Max Keiser because, apart from speaking accurately about many economic matters, he also stirs people up. He uses direct impassioned language like Jones.

We need to get the message out about the corruption and change the present situation. An educated public will not co-operate with the selfish goals of the power elite.

Judge Orders Fed To Disclose Who Received Bailout Trillions

A New York District Judge has ordered the Federal Reserve to disclose the destination of around $2 trillion dollars in bailout funds after the Fed failed to convince the Judge that the records should be exempt from the Freedom of Information Act.

“Manhattan Chief U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska rejected the central bank’s argument that the records aren’t covered by the law because their disclosure would harm borrowers’ competitive positions. The collateral lists “are central to understanding and assessing the government’s response to the most cataclysmic financial crisis in America since the Great Depression,” according to the lawsuit that led to yesterday’s ruling,” reports Bloomberg, the news outlet that originally filed the lawsuit.

Citing the fact that the US taxpayer is an “involuntary investor” in the nation’s banks, Bloomberg argued that the risks behind the $2 trillion in lending needed to be made public.

http://www.prisonplanet.com/judge-orders-fed-to-disclose-who-received-bailout-trillions.html

Apart from the fact that select US and overseas financial institutions certainly received the taxpayer money, it is more than likely that a large chunk of the trillions went into propping up the stockmarket. Investigators will surely find that the markets have been rigged.

Molten Steel in the Rubble of the World Trade Centre Collapse = Inside Job


The picture here shows superheated Molten Steel being pulled from the rubble of the World Trade Centre buildings weeks after the collapses.

We know this is steel because other materials, such as copper or aluminium, exhibiting a yellow or near white colour would be completely liquid. The melting point of steel is around 1500 degress Celsius whilst the melting point of copper is 1080 degrees Celsius and the melting point of aluminum is only 660 degrees Celsius. The metal in the picture is still plastic even though some of it is heated to well above 1000 degrees Celsius.

You are looking at building steel that has reached an extraordinary temperature in a rubble pile that had neither the fuel or air requirements to do this. If we look at the correct conditions to cause such heating, such as the conditions found in a forge (where iron can be heated to a red hot appearance), we require a sea of hot coals and air pumped into this mass in order to reach the necessary temperature. The problem with the building rubble pile is that it did not constitute a sea of coals and, according to official reports, it maintained conditions that were described as "oxygen poor"[US DELTA Study Group].

The ONLY other way of heating steel to such temperatures would require the use of large quantities of incendiary materials. The building fires could never cause such melting and neither could any later conventionally fuelled fire in the rubble pile.

Indeed, there are many reports of superheated steel seen throughout the rubble which must now be taken seriously and the implications recognised. From the photographic evidence and the testimony of people at the scene, along with official documention of melted Steel provided by FEMA, it would appear that large sections of the World Trade Centre Buildings were subjected to the actions of incendiary devices.

However, most damningly, analysis of the slag from the steel and also from previously molten iron spheres (which were found all throughout the dust) has revealed the signature of the incendiary Thermite. Later analysis of dust samples revealed unexploded fragments of Thermite.

The smoking gun scientific evidence proves that the Twin Towers and Building 7 were taken down using large quantities of thermite-type incendiary/explosives. The collapses were not natural fire induced events. 911 was an Inside Job.

Half of GPs Refuse Swine Flu Vaccine Over Testing Fears

Up to half of family doctors do not want to be vaccinated against swine flu.

GPs will be first in the line for the jabs when they become available but many will decline, even though they will be offering the vaccine to their patients.

More than two thirds of those who will turn the jab down believe it has not been tested enough. Most also believe the flu has turned out to be so mild in the vast majority of cases that the vaccine is not needed.

$2m Witness Payment, Bogus Forensic Evidence and Pentagon Memo Blaming Iran: How Lockerbie Bomber Appeal Threatened Scottish Justice

As the political furore over the release of convicted Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Al Megrahi engulfs three countries in bitter recriminations, The Mail on Sunday can now reveal the new and compelling evidence which he says would have proved his innocence.
In a submission to the Court of Appeal running to thousands of words, Megrahi’s lawyers list 20 grounds of appeal which include:

*Details of a catalogue of deliberately undisclosed evidence at the original trial.

*Allegations of ‘tampering’ with evidence.

*A summary of how American intelligence agencies were convinced that Iran, not Libya, was involved but that their reports were not open to the 2001 trial.

The closely guarded submission was obtained by Ian Ferguson, an investigative journalist and co-author of the book Cover-up of Convenience - The Hidden Scandal of Lockerbie.

But the evidence will never be tested in open court after the dying Libyan abandoned it last week to spend his final days with his family.

It is also said that the bombing was allowed to occur thanks to CIA non-intervention, that they wanted to protect a drug smuggling operation being run out of Syria (see here). It is possible that rogue elements inside the CIA were responsible for the actual bombing itself.

Bombshell Report on CIA Interrogations is Leaked

CIA interrogators threatened a captured al-Qaida leader with a power drill and a pistol in what was described as a mock execution, according to a long-suppressed report due to be released on Monday.

Details of the report by the spy agency's inspector general have emerged in the Washington Post and Newsweek. The full findings on the CIA's interrogation programme are to be made public after a federal judge upheld an appeal from the American Civil Liberties Union for their release.

The report is understood to describe mock executions where interrogators tried to get detainees to talk by firing a gun in an adjoining room to pretend another prisoner had been killed.

According to leaked information from the report, Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri was threatened with a drill and gun during his detention at one of the CIA's so-called black site prisons after his capture in 2002. He was subjected to the near-drowning technique known as waterboarding, as were two other al-Qaida leaders

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/aug/22/cia-interrogation-report-leaked

Whether they are held at Guantanamo Bay, Bagram Airbase, Abu Ghraib or in secret "black sites" it appears many prisoners have been subjected to various tortures, sometimes resulting in death. The sad part about these illegal interrogations is that the whole war on terror is based on a lie - that 911 was the work of the Al Qaeda "organisation."

Newspaper Confirmed the Involvement of Mossad in the Kidnapping of Russian Cargo Ship

According to sources, the Nezavisimaya Gazeta newspaper that the persons who are suspected pirates who boarded the cargo ship "Arctic Sea" In fact, members of the Israeli intelligence (Mossad) were trying to prevent the ship from the transfer of weapons to Iran.

The ship had disappeared more than three weeks of monitoring off the west coast of Africa and the Russian forces to free the crew of 15 sailors Russia on Monday, near the Cape Verde.

The media reported that Russia may have been the ship "Arctic Sea" cruise missile X-55 illegally hidden among a load of sawdust.

http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&langpair=ar%7Cen&u=http://islammemo.cc/akhbar/arab/2009/08/22/86838.html&rurl=translate.google.com

This story is the most plausible one I have heard. The Russians are supporting the Iranians in their effort to build a nuclear powerstation (not a weapons' plant). Because Iran now faces an attack by Israel, a rogue country loaded down with nukes, Russia is looking to provide means so that the Iranians can defend themselves.

I think the Russians assumed they would be able to easily send weapons from European ports without detection or interception. A more secure route would be via air transport or by shipping across the Caspian Sea. Until there is some further confirmation on this explanation we cannot claim to know what is really going on.

Naomi Wolf: 'Obama can Lock Any US Citizen up Without Trial'



President Obama is following the same path as Bush but more subtly and with greater eloquence. Obama is simply a better puppet for a corrupt elite.

To complete the agenda, to increase control over the population, all that is needed is some drastic new threat, another 911 style terror attack, and Obama could then round up dissenters and impose martial law for "the safety and wellbeing" of the population. He may indeed say things like, "America has no choice but to fight now" [ie. reinstate the draft], that dissenters will be "locked up for their own good", that "everyone has to pitch in and help save America" etc etc. Check out the whole video. Wolf doesn't go to these extremes but she certainly is concerned about these sorts of outcomes and points to some very troubling realities about the present system.

Letter to Dr. Shyam Sunder of NIST — Richard Gage, AIA

Request for meeting regarding NIST Reports - WTC7 and Twin Towers

[Ed: Copy of original letter dated July 20, 2009]
Dear Dr. Sunder,

We have heard you state publicly after the WTC 7 press conference that it "would not be productive" for you to meet with the Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. This is quite disappointing – as we now have over 700 architects and engineers at AE911Truth calling for a real investigation into the destruction of the three World Trade Center high-rises on 9/11. At what point will you take us seriously? Perhaps when our rapidly growing numbers reach 1,000 A/E's?

Here are our talking points:

1. The NIST November 2008 Final WTC 7 Investigative Report has many fatal flaws:
a. NIST was forced to acknowledge the free-fall collapse of Building 7 for 100 feet of its 6.5 second fall only after being grilled publicly by experts who are petition signers of AE911Truth. Yet you do not acknowledge the obvious implications of such free-fall collapse – that the structure had to have been removed – forcibly – by explosives. (Anyone knows that a building cannot collapse at the rate of a freely falling object while simultaneously crushing 40,000 tons of structural steel – because all of its gravitational potential energy has been converted to motion.)
Read entire letter (pdf)
http://www.ae911truth.org/info/75

Those who have knowingly engaged in the cover up and falsification of scientific data to hide clear evidence that 911 could only have been an inside job make themselves complicit in the crime itself. That's tantamount to Treason.

Inevitably criminal investigations will round up those involved in the crime AND the cover up. Those that offer information that help with the case may find their sentences reduced.

UNICEF Nigerian Polio Vaccine Contaminated with Sterilizing Agents Scientist Finds

A UNICEF campaign to vaccinate Nigeria's youth against polio may have been a front for sterilizing the nation. Dr. Haruna Kaita, a pharmaceutical scientist and Dean of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences of Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, took samples of the vaccine to labs in India for analysis.

Using WHO-recommended technologies like Gas Chromatography (GC) and Radio-Immuno assay, Dr. Kaita, upon analysis, found evidence of serious contamination. "Some of the things we discovered in the vaccines are harmful, toxic; some have direct effects on the human reproductive system," he said in an interview with Kaduna's Weekly Trust. "I and some other professional colleagues who are Indians who were in the Lab could not believe the discovery," he said.

A Nigerian government doctor tried to persuade Dr. Kaita that the contaminants would have no bearing on human reproduction. "…I was surprised when one of the federal government doctors was telling me something contrary to what I have learned, studied, taught and is the common knowledge of all pharmaceutical scientists -- that estrogen cannot induce an anti-fertility response in humans," he said. "I found that argument very disturbing and ridiculous."

http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2004/mar/04031101.html

I have heard stories about efforts to forcibly sterilize parts of the world's population and I think this case might represent good evidence to show that this position is true.

Any reasonable person must ask themselves HOW such a specific contaminant worked its way into the vaccine and why this has happened repeatedly in the past ? Something criminal is afoot.

Peltier Denied Parole: Comments from WhatReallyHappened.com

American Indian activist Leonard Peltier, imprisoned since 1977 for the deaths of two FBI agents, has been denied parole after authorities decided that releasing him would diminish the seriousness of his crime, the Associated Press reported in mid-afternoon on Aug. 21.
http://www.indiancountrytoday.com/national/53962587.html

Mike Rivero from WhatReallyHappened.com (Aug 21st) best sums up the evidence, or lack thereof, in this case- showing once again that the Federal authorities should not be trusted:
The FBI is covering its own ass, as always.

* FBI radio intercepts indicated that the two FBI agents were chasing a red pickup truck. The day after the shootout, the FBI director stated the FBI's intent to find a red pickup truck. Red pickup trucks near the reservation were stopped for weeks in the attempt to locate it. However, Leonard did not drive a red pickup truck. At his trial, the FBI instead claimed they had been searching for the red and white van that Leonard was sometimes seen driving[6].

* Testimony from three witnesses placed Peltier, Robideau and Butler near the crime scene. Those three witnesses later recanted, alleging that the FBI, while extracting their testimony, had tied them to chairs, denied them their right to talk to their attorney, and otherwise coerced and threatened them [7][8].

* The jury, unlike the juries in similar prosecutions against AIM leaders at the time, were not allowed to hear about the other cases, where the FBI had been rebuked for tampering with both the evidence and witnesses[9].

* An FBI ballistics expert testimony during the trial asserted that a shell casing found near the dead agents' bodies matched the gun tied to Peltier. However it was specified that an forensics test of the firing pin, which would have more definitively matched the gun to the casing, was not performed because the gun was damaged in a fire. Rather, a less definitive test was done which indicated that the extractor marks on the casing and gun match.
>Years later, after an FOIA request, the FBI ballistics expert’s records were examined. His report stated that he had performed a ballistics test of the firing pin and concluded that this bullet casing from the scene of the crime did not come from the gun tied to Peltier. That evidence was withheld from the jury during the
trial[10].


* Though the FBI's investigation indicated that an AR-15 was used to kill the agents, several different AR-15s were in the area at the time of the shootout which could have caused the fatal injuries. Also, no other casings or evidence about them were offered by the prosecutor’s office, even though other bullets were fired at the crime scene[11][12].

* At the conclusion of Peltier’s trial, the prosecutor closed his argument saying, "We proved that he went down to the bodies and executed those two young men at point blank range." However, at the appellate hearing, the government attorney conceded, "We had a murder. We had numerous shooters. We do not know who specifically fired what killing shots…We do not know who shot the agents[13]."

* The Pennsylvania Parole Commission, which presides over the prison Peltier was held at in Lewisburg, denied Peltier parole in 1993 based on their finding that he, "participated in the premeditated and cold blooded execution of those two officers." However, the Parole Commission has since stated that it, "recognizes that the prosecution has conceded the lack of any direct evidence that [Peltier] personally participated in the executions of the two FBI agents.[14]"

National Geographic to Air New 911 "Documentary".

National Geographic has announced it will air a documentary with the title: 911 Science and Conspiracy.

Title of the announcement:Official Version or Cover-Up Conspiracy? The Truth Behind 9/11 Put to the Test in New National Geographic Channel Program.

Based on the comments about it at the announcement website here: http://news.prnewswire.com/DisplayReleaseContent.aspx?ACCT=104&STORY=/ww
...it doesn't look like it will be very fair. For example, they say that "Eight years have passed and no stone has been left unturned in the painstaking process of piecing together what happened that fateful day". In what alternate universe? This is just propaganda. Of course it's what people think has happened and of course it should have happened, but didn't as we all know.
http://www.911blogger.com/node/20920

Each time a major media organisation puts out a 911 video declaring that there is no conspiracy, the organisation reveals itself to be complicit in the cover up of the mass murders of almost 3000 people. Considering the evidence now available to researchers it beggars belief that any unbiased investigator could possibly conclude that 911 was anything other than an inside job.

It will be interesting to see what sort outrageous tripe National Geographic has prepared in this attempt to brainwash the public.

The US economy is headed down.

Eventually when the US economy fails, the US dollar will collapse and inflation in the US will go up. Way up ...

Eight Suspected Hijackers of Cargo Ship Arctic Sea Arrested by Russian Authorities

The crew of a cargo ship that disappeared in the Channel were taken hostage by hijackers and forced to sail towards Africa, Russia’s Defence Minister said yesterday.

Eight men were in custody after the Russian Navy and Air Force intercepted the Arctic Sea 300 miles (480km) off Cape Verde, a group of islands west of Senegal, Anatoli Serdyukov said. The 15-man crew of the ship were rescued.

The announcement was the first confirmation of reports that the vessel was boarded on July 24, soon after it left a port in Finland carrying a cargo of timber worth $1.3 million (£800,000). The intentions and motive of the gang are still not known.

Mr Serdyukov told President Medvedev that the armed group had stormed the ship in Swedish waters and taken control of the vessel. He said that the hijackers — two Russians, four Estonians and two Latvians — were in detention on the Russian anti-submarine ship Ladny after a rescue operation at 1am Moscow time on Monday.

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/europe/article6800169.ece

Until we know exactly what's been going on I will continue to be concerned about what this hijacking was all about. As previously mentioned a commercial ship makes a good delivery vehicle for a nuclear device. However, a better method in such scenario would not involve a hijacking but the concealment of a weapon on a vessel bound for a particular port.

Demolition Access To The WTC Towers: Part Two - Security

Who could have placed explosives in the World Trade Center (WTC) towers? This is the second essay in a series that attempts to answer that question. The first installment began by considering the tenants that occupied the impact zones and the other floors that might have played a useful role in the demolition of the WTC towers. [1] The result was a picture of connections to organizations that had access to explosive materials and to the expertise required to use explosives. Additionally it was seen that, in the years preceding 9/11, the impact zone tenants had all made structural modifications to the areas where the airliners struck the buildings.

The management representatives of these tenant companies were seen to be secretive and powerful. Through these powerful people, the tenants were connected to organizations that benefited greatly from the 9/11 attacks, including the defense contractors Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, General Dynamics, Halliburton, and Science Applications International Corp (SAIC). The tenants also had strong connections to the Bush family and their corporate network, including Dresser Industries (now Halliburton) and UBS, and to Deutsche Bank and its subsidiaries, reported to have brokered the insider trading deals. There were also links between these tenant companies and the terrorist-financing Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI.)

http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/HL0908/S00107.htm

We also know that the core of the building, the strongest part was accessed during fireproofing and elevator modifications in the months leading up to the demolitions. The WTC buildings were effectively "wide open" in terms of rigging for demolition.

And note: the company in charge of the overall security had connections to the Bush crime family.

A Third of Nurses will Refuse to have the Swine Flu Jab

Up to a third of nurses will say no to the swine flu jab because of concerns over its safety, a poll has found.

NHS workers are first in line for the vaccine, but a survey of 1,500 nurses found many will reject it.

Last night a Government scientist condemned the results saying nurses who do not have the jab are putting patients at risk.

Nevertheless the poll, by Nursing Times magazine, will raise questions over the Government's planned mass vaccination programme.

Of 1,500 readers, 30 per cent would not say yes to the vaccine, while 33 per cent said maybe. Just 37 per cent said they would definitely have the jab.

Of those who said they would refuse the jab, 60 per cent said their main reason was concern about the safety of the vaccine.

Building Block of Life Found on Comet

The amino acid glycine, a fundamental building block of proteins, has been found in a comet for the first time, bolstering the theory that raw ingredients of life arrived on Earth from outer space, scientists said on Monday.

Microscopic traces of glycine were discovered in a sample of particles retrieved from the tail of comet Wild 2 by the NASA spacecraft Stardust deep in the solar system some 242 million miles (390 million km) from Earth, in January 2004.

Samples of gas and dust collected on a small dish lined with a super-fluffy material called aerogel were returned to Earth two years later in a canister that detached from the spacecraft and landed by parachute in the Utah desert.

WRH: Fake Al Qaeda Actors EXPOSED! Adam Gadahn & Yousef al-Khattab



A great clip from WhatReallyHappened.com (WRH) that helps to illustrate what's going on. Yes, there are real fundamentalists out there, but many, if not most, of these people claiming to be Al Qaeda are fakes. And remember, the War on Terror is a direct result of the proven false flag attack of 911.

Radiation Tests on Shipload of Lumber? Mysteries of Hijacked Ship Raise Concerns

Claims that the Arctic Sea – the Russian ship apparently hijacked and missing for two weeks – was carrying a nuclear weapon bound for Osama bin Laden are being investigate by agents for the British intelligence service MI6, according to a report from Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.
The ship was found today 300 miles off the West African coast and the crew was safe, but a team of specialists in locating nuclear substances was dispatched from Moscow to the scene.

http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=107174

This whole episode stinks of a "rogue" intelligence operation. The article mentions "Bin Laden's" recent claim that he would soon have a nuclear device in his hands. Since we know Bin Laden is dead, and that 911 was an inside job, this situation appears to be "setting the stage" for some sort of staged incident.

Importantly, it does not matter if nuclear material was really stolen here- those that are running the operation only need a credible story to cover for the new attack.

It's very difficult to know what is really going on, but it pays to be vigilant. Let us hope that those in the intelligence community, who think 911 was a bad idea, can act to prevent another one.

Are Politicians Being Blackmailed?

This explosive question arises from the dynamic new book, The Franklin Scandal: Powerbrokers, Child Abuse and Betrayal by Nick Bryant, coming out in May 2009 from TrineDay.

The approval rating of the United States Congress hit an historic low of 12% in October and is currently under 25%, showing that the vast majority of citizens think the Congress is not serving us, the American people. The Franklin Scandal shows a reason why. There is another check-and-balance system in effect—one that has been hidden from the public: blackmail.

The Franklin Scandal exposes an illicit nationwide pedophile network and its ensuing cover-up. The victims (now adults) talk about flights all around the country, and there are hundreds of flight logs to back this up. The most frequent destination? Washington, D.C.—to a party house wired for pictures and sound.

The corruption overpowered local and state law enforcement in Nebraska, and a special committee was formed in the Nebraska State Senate to pursue the allegations. After the Senate committee’s lead investigator was killed, along with his 9-year-old son, in an exploding plane — any real inquiry stopped, and the cover-up continued. This book shows how a major part of that cover-up was accomplished, how officers of the court suborned their duties … and afterwards were given promotions: one is a sitting federal judge.

The scandal erupted out of the 1988 multi-million-dollar failure of Franklin Credit Union in Omaha, Nebraska, operated by Lawrence E. King, who at the time was a rising star in the Republican Party. The allegations included the plundering of children from the venerable Catholic charity institution, Boys Town, headquartered near Omaha. As the accusations mounted, Mr. King was swiftly declared mentally unfit, whisked away, and never charged, or questioned about the child abuse testimony against him. Mr. King, currently lives in Virginia.

http://www.franklinscandal.com/about-the-franklin-scandal-book/50-three.html

Indeed, those politicians who are not bought and paid for by corporate America are probably being blackmailed. Having said that, I would also point out that there are a few who are clean, with no skeletons in the closet.

Uranium Weapons - Does anyone care about our Planet?

We have seen governments and military refuse to accept that uranium based weapons have been used in all the theatres of war. Only when independent tests and conclusive evidence is provided do these authorities back down. We have seen this in the Balkans, Kuwait, and Iraq. We now have good evidence from Afghanistan, with further news of a leaked German document. Now we only have three more to go, Lebanon, Gaza and Pakistan. We already know what the final outcome will be but it takes time for such authorities to admit to their cover-ups and lies.

Once the cat is out of the bag we see a rush of activity by those governments to apply pressure to the UNEP and WHO to go out into the field to check the levels of contamination (as if they don't know already). The respective teams return to their headquarter and in conjunction with the governments, ICRP and IAEA prepare a well worded document declaring that there were no significant findings and that the levels found met with normal background radiation. They then repeat that the traces of depleted uranium or enriched uranium found were insignificant and all fall within permitted levels and do not pose any risk to troops or the civilian population. What they don't tell you is that the figures are all unrealistic and that their methodology of using the ICRP model is totally flawed and outdated when dealing with DU or Low Level Radiation (LLR), especially when it has been inhaled.

Nuclear Power's Sick Legacy

CO2 is not the only global warming gas emitted by nuclear power. The Pacudah enrichment plant in Kentucky, which processes uranium from many countries, including Australia, annually leaks 93 per cent of the CFC-114 gas released by the US. Banned under the Montreal protocol, CFC is a prodigious destroyer of the ozone layer and it also is a potent global warming agent.

Furthermore, nuclear reactors routinely emit large amounts of radioactive materials, including the fat-soluble noble gases xenon, krypton and argon. Deemed "inert" by the nuclear industry, they are readily inhaled by populations near reactors and absorbed into the bloodstream where they concentrate in the fat pads of the abdomen and upper thighs, exposing ovaries and testicles to mutagenic gamma radiation (like X-rays).

Tritium, radioactive hydrogen, is also regularly discharged from reactors. Combining with oxygen, it forms tritiated water, which passes readily through skin, lungs and gut. Contrary to industry propaganda, tritium is a dangerous carcinogenic element producing cancers, congenital malformations and genetic deformities in low doses in animals, and by extrapolation in humans.
----------------------------------------------------------
Already, radioactive elements in many nuclear-powered countries are leaking into underground water systems, rivers, and oceans, progressively concentrating at each level of the food chain. Strontium 90, which causes bone cancer and leukaemia, and cesium 137, which induces rare muscle and brain cancers, are radioactive for 600 years. Food and human breast milk will become increasingly radioactive near numerous waste sites. Cancers will inevitably increase in frequency in exposed populations, as will genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis in their descendants.

Each typical 1000-megawatt reactor makes 200 kilograms of plutonium a year. Less than one-millionth of a gram is carcinogenic. Handled like iron by the body, it causes liver, lung and bone cancer and leukaemia. Crossing the placenta to induce congential deformities, it has a predilection for the testicle, where inevitably it will cause genetic abnormalities. With a radiological life of 240,000 years, released in the ecosphere it will affect biological systems forever.

http://www.theage.com.au/news/opinion/nuclear-powers-sick-legacy/2006/04/16/1145126005354.html

There is a REASON for the increased occurrances of cancers in today's society. This is one cause. Other causes are likely due to the chemical industry. Our modern world is swimming in all manner of artificial materials that have not been properly investigated to see their effects on the body. A wise, and less profit driven scientific culture would be more careful when it comes to our long term health. Things need to change.

Now if we could get one of these companies to rig a tower so that it exactly resembled the Twin Tower demolitions. Of interest is the lateral ejection of material. This feature requires explosive forces and cannot be a result of gravity- as has been claimed about the 911 towers.

Lockerbie links to Franklin, Dutroux, Mossad, McKee

The Lockerbie bomb has links to:

1. Mossad

2. Iran-Contra

3. The Dutroux and Franklin child abuse scandals

4. Major Charles McKee.

According to a BBC report (BBC News Lockerbie: Conspiracy theories):

A Pan Am investigation is believed to have concluded that the Lockerbie bomb was targeted specifically to kill a small band of US Defence Intelligence Agency operatives (including Major Charles McKee) who had uncovered a drugs ring run by a CIA unit in Lebanon.

The drugs-ring is said to have been set up by Israeli Mossad
http://aangirfan.blogspot.com/2009/08/lockerbie-links-to-franklin-dutroux.html

I am no expert on the Lockerbie Bombing, so I can't confirm everything in this story, but I do know for a fact that US "agents" were at the crash site very early, looking through suitcases (please read the full article at the link).

I also know that the evidence to indicate the bombing originated out of Malta has been recently shown to be false.

Plus, I know that the UK family members of the victims do not think the Libyans were involved in the crime.

It is possible that the material here is very close to the truth.

Marc Faber Says America Will Launch More Wars to Distract from Bad Economy

[Orignially posted by George Washington on his Blog.]

The claim that America would launch more wars to the help the economy is outrageous, right?

Certainly.

But leading economist Marc Faber has repeatedly said that the American government will start new wars in response to the economic crisis:

“The next thing the government will do to distract the attention of the people on bad economic conditions is they’ll start a war somewhere.”

“If the global economy doesn’t recover, usually people go to war.”

Is Faber crazy?

Maybe. But top trend forecaster Gerald Calente agrees.
------------------------------------------------------------
As the economic crisis escalates and the debt-based central banking system shows it can no longer re-inflate the bubble by creating assets out of thin air, an economic and political rationale for war is easy to come by; for if the Keynesian doctrine that government spending is the only way to lift us out of an economic depression is true, then surely military expenditures are the quickest way to inject “life” into a failing system. This doesn’t work, economically, since the crisis is only maksed by the wartime atmosphere of emergency and “temporary” privation. Politically, however, it is a lifesaver for our ruling elite, which is at pains to deflect blame away from itself and on to some “foreign” target.

It’s the oldest trick in the book, and it’s being played out right before our eyes, as the U.S. prepares to send even more troops to the Afghan front and is threatening Iran with draconian economic sanctions, a step or two away from outright war.

http://www.infowars.com/marc-faber-says-america-will-launch-more-wars-to-distract-from-bad-economy/

The US won't be able to start a new war against Iran simply on the basis of unsubstantiated claims of a secret nuclear weapons program. If a strike is launched and the economy implodes a huge amount of the blame will be levelled at the Obama Administration. The bad guys really need to ramp up the "reality" and fear factor within the current unwinnable war on terror paradigm. The US population will be "need" to be targeted. A terrorised population will rally around their President and accept whatever draconian measures are in store.

Therefore next step in this equation is likely to be a false flag terror attack on US soil in which "Al Qaeda backed" US nationals are implicated in the plot. This will provide an excuse to sweep up any internal "undesirables", clamp down on freedom of speech, the internet etc. whilst blaming the disaster on outside forces. Be prepared for another horrific 911-style false flag attack.

The problem for the present Administration is that so many people are becoming suspicious of the US Government, ie the establishment, that time is fast running out for these criminals. People are becoming aware of their schemes ... !

Russia's Entire Atlantic Fleet Join International Hunt for 'Pirate' Ship that Vanished by Kent Coast

The Russian Navy's entire Atlantic fleet is searching for a cargo ship which pirates are suspected of hijacking before passing though the English Channel, it emerged today.

At least five warships and several submarines have joined the international hunt for the vessel which vanished along the Kent coast with a crew of 13 Russians on board.

The 3,998-tonne ship, which was also carrying £1million worth of timber, has not been seen for two weeks and it may now be in Africa.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1205836/Pirates-Channel-International-hunt-launched-cargo-ship-vanishes-air.html

This is highly suspicious. We have no idea who has taken the ship. Seeing that it was taken in European waters I don't think that it is the work of Somali Pirates. This ship could now be almost anywhere.

The most puzzling aspect here is that the crew was first tied up for 12 hours then let go to continue their journey off Sweden- then the ship disappears. What is going on ?

Was the ship taken simply for its cargo > to target the Russian crew > for ransom > or was the ship taken so that it could be used as a transport in some sort of black operation ? [or did she sink ?] Why was the crew first tied up and then let go ?

One credible senario for another 911 attack would be to set off a nuclear device in a busy port somewhere around the world and blame "Al Qaeda". The ship could be used as a delivery vehicle. I am quite concerned about this missing ship and, it seems, so are the Russians.

Tortured Logic



Those that authorised the use of torture must be held accountable for their crimes. So far the Obama Administration has avoided following US Law in its neglect to launch a full scale criminal inquiry. By avoiding this duty Attorney General Holder is clearly obstructing justice.

The Second Wave of The Depression: Hyperinflation Likely

The mere mention of production reminds us that the assorted Austrian, Chicago, and social credit schools are predominantly or exclusively concerned with money and banking, and pay little or no attention to industrial, agricultural, and infrastructural production, meaning of course that they neglect the creation of those tangible physical use values, capital goods, and related forms of real wealth upon which human existence depends. With bailouts increasing and all forms of commodity production declining, we have the classic situation of far too much money chasing too few goods. Internal pressure towards hyperinflation comes from the fact that the bailout and public debt lending, on top of the bloated, fictitious, and exponentially growing mass of kited derivatives, are all charges which must be added to the prices of commodity production. Add this to the more important factor of looming dollar panic in the international exchanges, and the preponderance of the evidence points towards hyperinflation. “Helicopter Ben“ Bernanke got his name from his famous recipe of throwing bales of dollars out of helicopters onto the lawns of bankers to stimulate the economy out of a depression, and this reminds us that the profile of the Anglo-American financial leadership from Gordon Brown, Alistair Darling, and Mervyn King to Summers, Geithner, and Bernanke is decidedly hyperinflationary.

Popular Insect Repellent Deet Is Neurotoxic

The active ingredient in many insect repellents, deet, has been found to be toxic to the central nervous system. Researchers say that more investigations are urgently needed to confirm or dismiss any potential neurotoxicity to humans, especially when deet-based repellents are used in combination with other neurotoxic insecticides.

Vincent Corbel from the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement in Montpellier, and Bruno Lapied from the University of Angers, France, led a team of researchers who investigated the mode of action and toxicity of deet (N,N-Diethyl-3-methylbenzamide). Corbel said, "We've found that deet is not simply a behavior-modifying chemical but also inhibits the activity of a key central nervous system enzyme, acetycholinesterase, in both insects and mammals".

Kepler Scope Sends Stunning Images of Distant Planet

Five months after it was launched on a mission to find earth-like planets, the Kepler space telescope has sent back to Earth high-precision images of a planet some 1,000 light years away, NASA said Thursday.

But the real excitement at NASA was over how well Kepler was working, and the promise it holds for the future.

With Kepler only in the calibration phase, the telescope, which was launched in March on a mission to find earth-like planets in the galaxy, sent back to Earth highly precise images of a planet with the unromantic name of HAT-P-7-B.

The images of the so-called "hot Jupiter" planet located about 1,000 light years (around 5.9 quadrillion miles, 9.5 quadrillion kilometers) from Earth were "the first time anyone has seen light from this planet," said William Borucki, the principal science investigator for the Kepler mission and lead author of a report that will be published Friday in Science.

Deposition of Sibel Edmonds Completed, DoJ a 'No Show,' Bombshells Under Oath

Deposition now concluded, stunning; FBI whistleblower answered 'thorough questioning'; implicated Congressmembers in criminal conspiracy, bribery, espionage, sexual blackmail; Brewster Jennings bombshell...
----------------------------------------------------
At the venue, Edmonds said that she named names and details on all of the Congress members noted on her "State Secrets Gallery" page. And then some.

She said she told them about "Mr. [Marc] Grossman and Brewster Jennings...And the real story about them, not the crap they got from the media."

I was unable to follow up that statement with a question, before she got into a cab, but was able to track her down on her cell thereafter.

First, I asked if she specified whether the sitting bi-sexual, married Congresswoman who had been taped sleeping with a woman, without knowing, and then bribed by Turkish interests with the tape, to vote against the Armenian Genocide resolution had been a Democrat or a Republican. She said she is a Democrat, and that she testified to that during her deposition. (See Krikorian's long statement above for more details on that woman.)

Second, I asked about the "real" story on Brewster Jennings, as opposed to the "crap...from the media" as she mentioned at the venue.

"Basically," she said, "I told them how [third-ranking State Dept. official in the Bush Admin and former Ambassador to Turkey] Marc Grossman disclosed" that Brewster Jennings was a CIA front company to the target of an FBI investigation. "And it was under oath and that some lives may have been lost."

Depleted Uranium Ammunition in Afghan War: New Evidence

The section on DU munitions begins with:

During the operation “Enduring Freedom” in support of the Northern Alliance against the Taliban-Regime, US-aircraft used, amongst others, armour-piercing incendiary munitions with a DU-core. Because of its pyrophoric character, when this type of munition is used against hard targets (e.g. tanks, cars) the uranium burns. During the combustion, toxic dusts can be deposited, particularly at and around the targets, which can then be re-suspended easily.

It then warns troops how to recognise contaminated targets and of the potential health threat from DU munitions, suggesting precautions that troops should take. It is notable that they suggest the use of full Nuclear Chemical and Biological warfare suits:

DU-munitions can therefore induce toxic and radiological damage to exposed personnel through heavy metal poisoning and very low-level radiation. When it is suspected that these weapons have been used (burnt out cars or tanks, burnt out convoys, typical 30mm bullet holes) NBC (nuclear, biological and chemical) protection suits and NBC masks have to be worn in the vicinity of the munitions’ impact, until NBC security troops can rule out any threat.

http://dprogram.net/2009/08/05/depleted-uranium-ammunition-in-afghan-war-new-evidence/

DU weapons must be banned. There can be no excuse. The US, UK and other Governments that employ these munitions must BAN them immediately. Furthermore a criminal investigation must be launched into how these toxic weapons were allowed into use since their long term effects on people and the environment are in violation of the Geneva Conventions.

Hacker Attack Clamps Down Twitter, Facebook Experiences Intermittent Problems

At 9 a.m., millions of users of Twitter.com found themselves unable to access the microblogging website, the modern version of the telephone party line through which more than 40 million people announce what they are doing, reading, eating and thinking at any given moment.

Undaunted, the rejected Twitterers trooped to Facebook.com, the social networking site that has more than 200 million users, which has "status updates" that mimic Twitter feeds. But before users could begin to type, "Is sad that Twitter is down," a terrible and panic-inducing discovery: Facebook was down, too.

For the first time, more than 34 million Americans received food stamps in May, the government said on Thursday, another symptom of the longest and one of the deepest recessions since the Great Depression.

Enrollment surged by 2 percent to reach a record 34.4 million people, or one in nine Americans, in the latest month for which figures are available.

It was the sixth month in a row that enrollment set a record. Every state recorded a gain, and Florida had the largest increase at 4.2 percent.

The Conservation Of Angular Momentum In Action...



Amazing video of a demolition in Turkey going horribly wrong.

First note that the upper part of the building remains as one HUGE chunk.

Second, note that not only does the building topple over, IT ROLLS OVER! - This is due to the conservation of angular momentum - a fundamental law of Physics that keeps spinning tops/coins spinning.

On 9/11 however, according to debunkers, this fundamental law of Physics was temporarily suspended. When the south tower started to collapse, the upper block of floors toppled and reached an angle of about 25 degrees...


http://911debunkers.blogspot.com/2009/08/conservation-of-angular-momentum-in.html

If the Laws of physics had been in operation, and no explosives used, then the upper block of WTC2 should have kept tilting and fallen in one large chunk. Instead we find that this upper block disintegrates in mid air. There is no reason this detached solid block of interlocking steel should become blasted into concrete powder and steel fragments without some massive (clearly explosive) force acting upon it. That's a huge red flag right there.

More great analysis sourced from Debunking the Debunkers.

FBI Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds Subpoenaed, Set to 'Break' Gag Order Unless DoJ Intercedes

Unless the Dept. of Justice re-invokes their twice-invoked "state secrets privilege" claim in order to once again gag former FBI translator-turned-whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, her attorneys have notified the department by hand-delivered, sworn letter of declaration [PDF] this week, that she intends to give a public deposition, open to the media, in response to a subpoena this Saturday in Washington D.C..

Edmonds has confirmed her intentions to answer any questions asked of her during the sworn proceedings, fully and publicly, during conversations with The BRAD BLOG this week. She notes that her agreement with her former employer, the FBI --- who fired her illegally after she filed whistleblower allegations about corruption and foreign infiltration in the linguistics department --- includes certain non-disclosure requirements. However, those requirements do not preclude her answering to a legally issued court subpoena.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Edmonds agreement, via affidavit, to give testimony on the points mentioned by Krikorian above
[see the full article at the link], under oath, and in public, would be a first. Much of her previous sworn testimony, to Congress and to the 9/11 Commission, has been entirely classified, leaving those of us in the media with an interest in her case to piece together the puzzle of what has made her, in the words of the ACLU, "the most gagged person in the history of the United States of America".

On Tuesday, Congressional Quarterly's intelligence reporter Jeff Stein filed a report on Edmonds' upcoming "test" of the Department of Justice in the Schmidt v. Krikorian case. However, it's fallen largely to the independent media in the U.S. and the foreign mainstream media to dig into the details of Edmonds' allegations, described by one former CIA analyst early last year as "treason at the highest levels of the United State government."

Three and a half hours of her sworn testimony at the 911 Commission, dealing with issues that indicate September 11 was an inside operation, were buried. Let's hope she is allowed to "tell all" this coming weekend.

What the Fed is REALLY Trying to Hide In Fighting an Audit

Originally post by George Washington at his blog.

75% of Americans and at least 276 Congress members and 19 Senators want to audit the Fed, but the Fed is fighting tooth and nail to keep everything hidden.

Most people assume that the Fed wants to keep secret the list of banks which received bailout money. You know, something along the lines of "we gave Goldman Sachs $100 billion".

But what the Fed is really struggling to keep hidden is the fact that the entire financial system is based on massive manipulation and fraud by the Fed and its primary dealers.

Specifically, the Fed is desperately trying to hide that many trillions of the government's bailouts have gone to inflating the stock market, buying up the U.S. government's own treasuries, and gaming the currency and gold markets.

Of course, when the New York Federal Reserve's "primary dealers" (the dealers through which the Fed carries out its open market operations in general, and its PPT, ESF, and other schemes through) get the huge sums of cash from the Fed, they place bets based on inside knowledge of where the money flows are going (they also, supposedly, skim off part of the cash, but that's for another essay).

In other words, the Fed's primary dealers engage in insider trading and frontrunning on a scale which would make your normal white collar felons look like a silver nanoparticle.

Finally, the Fed is not the only central bank engaging in manipulation. An audit would show how the Fed is playing footsie with other private central banks in an international con game.

Don't believe me? Show me the books and prove me wrong.

Do Flu Shots Work? Ask A Vaccine Manufacturer.




My biggest problem is with the mercury based preservatives. Why use mercury when you can use an alcohol substitute ? Not every manufacturer uses metals based agents, so why should any ? A recent study has shown that the Thimerosal preservative to be potentially harmful.

Deutsche Bank: About Half of U.S. Mortgages Seen Underwater by 2011

The percentage of U.S. homeowners who owe more than their house is worth will nearly double to 48 percent in 2011 from 26 percent at the end of March, portending another blow to the housing market, Deutsche Bank said on Wednesday.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Of prime conforming loans, 41 percent will be "underwater" by the first quarter of 2011, up from 16 percent at the end of the first quarter 2009, it said. Forty-six percent of prime jumbo loans will be larger than their properties' value, up from 29 percent, it said.

If this occurs then the US economy is completely wrecked.

Ron Paul - Cash for Clunkers



The reason I included this clip, that deals specifically with the car industry assistance, is that it gets to the heart of the bailout fraud in general. The bailout money is not actually going to help the poor, and it is not going into anything that will help the economy generate wealth in the long term. It's short term quick fix type fiddling that will not last.

The truth of the matter is that there are many fewer jobs in the US so that there is less money to be spent. The car industry (and other industries- like banks) require extensive overhauling and no matter what they do they still face real contractions in the market as wealth dries up in the cyclical form of lost jobs and lost buying power.

Think about the wider implications with regard to what Congressman Paul has said here in the clip.

Bayer Knowingly Sold HIV Contaminated Medicine!

Bayer Sells AIDS-Infected Drug Banned in U.S. in Europe, Asia - Unearthed documents show that the drug company Bayer sold millions of dollars worth of an injectable blood-clotting medicine -- Factor VIII concentrate, intended for hemophiliacs -- to Asian, Latin American, and some European countries in the mid-1980s, although they knew that it was tainted with AIDS. Bayer knew about the fact that the drug was tainted and told the FDA to keep things under wraps while they made a profit off of a drug that infected its patients.



The question here is WHO IN THE HECK is running Bayer and the US FDA so that they would allow this to happen ??!!

Bayer is currently involved in swine flu vaccine development.

The 9/11 Building "Collapses" In Perspective

[According to the 911 Truth Debunkers] Making comparisons between the three World Trade Center towers and other high rise buildings that burned much hotter for much longer and didn't collapse is ludicrous because of their different constructions. But comparing the towers to a low-rise 13 story building in Holland or a toy factory is perfectly acceptable.



Even ignoring all the forensic evidence, that proves explosive thermite was used on the Twin Towers and Building 7, it's obvious from the historical record that there are SERIOUS problems with the collapses of the 3 World Trade Centre Buildings on 911.

The very fact that WTC7 collapsed at all was the key evidence that rang alarm bells for myself and led to a second look at the official story.

(thanks to Debunking the Debunkers for the You Tube clip and intro !)

[Posted at the SpookyWeather blog, August 4th, 2009.]

THE FORENSIC EVIDENCE THAT ENDS THE 911 TRUTH DEBATE.

There exists some extremely disturbing scientific evidence which totally undermines the official 911 story. It does not matter what theories you believe in, the material here speaks for itself:

The picture above shows MOLTEN STEEL being removed from the World Trade Centre rubble pile. However, from all accounts (even the official NISTs report concedes this point) the fires in the WTC buildings were far too weak to cause such melting. Conventional building fires, including ones initiated with aviation kerosene, simply cannot raise the temperature of structural steel to its melting point of around 1300 degrees celsius. According to all the available data, the fires in the Towers could only have reached a maximum temperature of around 650 degrees celsius- yet here we can see steel so hot that it has taken on a yellow look (an observation that indicates the temperature must be between 850-1000 degrees celsius !!).

There are ONLY two ways which would enable this steel to reach such a high temperature.
1. In a blast furnace.
2. From Explosives.
The rubble pile was not a blast furnace.
Therefore one must assume that explosives were the most likely agent.

Furthermore, we have supporting eyewitness testimony from firefighters and civilians which reveals that many of them felt, and were knocked over by, huge explosions occurring in the lower floors of the WTC buildings -far away from the fire zones.

Critically, scientific analysis conducted by physics Professor Steven Jones has uncovered the chemical signature for the explosive THERMATE in multiple samples taken from the WTC steel and dust- proving, without doubt, that explosives were used.

The science here is clear cut. Whatever one thinks about the various theories floating around out there, one thing is certain: The Twin Towers (and Building 7) at the World Trade Centre site were rigged with explosives. Most importantly, such an operation would take many weeks to plan and carry out. Therefore, part of the 911 attacks against the World Trade Centre complex MUST have been an "Inside Job" as Bin Laden's men would not have had the necessary time or access to wire these buildings.

The charade must end. If we are honest with ourselves we must now accept there is damning physical (forensic) evidence that undermines the official story. Certain elements within the US government appear complicit in the attacks of September 11.[1] A new independent criminal investigation must be launched and the phony "war on terror" stopped.

(For a more detailed analysis on the physics of the WTC collapses see Steven Jones' paper: Why Indeed Did the World Trade Center Buildings Completely Collapse? [PDF] and visit Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth, an organisation with over 600 building professionals who agree with these findings.)

UPDATE: In a peer reviewed scientific paper it has been show conclusively that particles of high tech explosives were present all throughout the WTC dust. There is no doubt about it. These buildings WERE destroyed using thermite-type incendiary explosives.

Note: I will continue to post 911 information at this blog, ad infinitum, until we see a proper criminal investigation. Once everyone can see that 911 was an inside job (and be able to openly talk about the crime) then action WILL follow.
