Judge Napolitano: Revolution Is The DUTY Of The People



Revolution can also be peaceful such as we saw in India during the 1940s. If you deny the Government your cooperation, and close down the country, then changes can be forced.

Amnesty: Israel's Flotilla Probe a 'Whitewash'

London-based rights group Amnesty International condemned on Friday the findings of an Israeli inquiry into last year’s raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla as a “whitewash,” saying the Israeli investigating panel failed to account for the deaths of nine Turkish nationals at the hands of Israeli commando forces.
--------------------------------------------
"Despite being nearly 300 pages long, the [Tirkel] report crucially fails to explain how the activists died and what conclusions the Commission reached regarding the IDF’s specific actions in each case," said a statement from AI.

"The Commission’s failure to account for the deaths reinforces the view that the Israeli authorities are unwilling or incapable of delivering accountability for abuses of international law committed by Israeli forces," the organization accused, saying the inadequate findings of the commission, "highlights the need for follow-up to ensure that the sharply contrasting conclusions of the International Fact-Finding Mission appointed by the UN Human Rights Council, which were issued on 22 September 2010, but not even mentioned by the Commission, are addressed and that the rights of victims to an effective remedy are upheld."

How the World Temperature “Record” was Manipulated through Dropping of Stations

With the poor placement of stations (91 % of the stations are CRN 3 to 5 = bad to very poor); where they have purposely taken away the urban heat island effect, use huge smoothing radius, the historical “adjustment and tweaking” to cool the past etc.

Not to mention the great slaughter of GHCN stations around 1990 – roughly 63 % of all climate measuring stations were “dropped”. Oddly enough many of them in cold places – Hmmm? Now the number of GHCN stations are back at the same numbers as in 1890.

http://uddebatt.wordpress.com/2011/01/23/how-the-world-temperature-%E2%80%9Crecord%E2%80%9D-was-manipulated-trough-dropping-of-stations/

One often repeated comment/criticism about the climate change conspiracy is "if this is a scam, involving corporations, you would expect them to be against climate change."

It is not so simple. Many in big industry would be against a carbon tax but many in the banking community, those involved in setting up carbon trades, would be FOR the a climate change agenda. Effectively the carbon trading will act as a tax on everything and the beneficiaries will include those that set up the scheme.

At the end of the day big industry will still be protected, getting special exceptions or subsidies, whilst we all have to pay extra taxes. New technology, that may undermine the oil industry and minimise pollution, can still be defeated as it has always been.

Hogwash, Mr. President

What is the state of the union? You certainly couldn’t tell from that platitudinous hogwash that the president dished out Tuesday evening. I had expected Barack Obama to be his eloquent self, appealing to our better nature, but instead he was mealy-mouthed in avoiding the tough choices that a leader should delineate in a time of trouble. He embraced clean air and a faster Internet while ignoring the depth of our economic pain and the Wall Street scoundrels who were responsible—understandably so, since they so prominently populate the highest reaches of his administration. He had the effrontery to condemn “a parade of lobbyists” for rigging government after he appointed the top Washington representative of JPMorgan Chase to be his new chief of staff.

The speech was a distraction from what seriously ails us: an unabated mortgage crisis, stubbornly high unemployment and a debt that spiraled out of control while the government wasted trillions making the bankers whole. Instead the president conveyed the insular optimism of his fat-cat associates: “We are poised for progress. Two years after the worst recession most of us have ever known, the stock market has come roaring back. Corporate profits are up. The economy is growing again.” How convenient to ignore the fact that this bubble of prosperity, which has failed the tens of millions losing their homes and jobs, was floated by enormous government indebtedness now forcing deep cuts in social services including state financial aid for those better-educated students the president claims to be so concerned about.

CHART SHOCK: The REAL Unemployment Rate Is More Than 22%

The seasonally-adjusted SGS Alternate Unemployment Rate reflects current unemployment reporting methodology adjusted for SGS-estimated long-term discouraged workers, who were defined out of official existence in 1994. That estimate is added to the BLS estimate of U-6 unemployment, which includes short-term discouraged workers.

http://dailybail.com/home/chart-shock-the-real-unemployment-rate-is-22.html

When the US economy tanks during 2011 we will see the unemployment situation worsen significantly.

It will be interesting to see if the money printing fraudsters at the Fed and those "steering" the ship in Washington are able to hold off on this disaster for more than 12 months.

Proof JFK hit in the Back Not Neck: Single Gunman Theory Debunked.


[The position of the bullet hole in the shirt (top picture) clearly rules out the official story as described in the picture above.]

Thirty-three years ago, Gerald R. Ford took pen in hand and changed - ever so slightly - the Warren Commission's key sentence on the place where a bullet entered John F. Kennedy's body when he was killed in Dallas.

The effect of Ford's change was to strengthen the commission's conclusion that a single bullet passed through Kennedy and severely wounded Texas Gov. John Connally - a crucial element in its finding that Lee Harvey Oswald was the sole gunman.
---------------------------------
''This is the most significant lie in the whole Warren Commission report,'' said Robert D. Morningstar, a computer systems specialist in New York City who said he has studied the assassination since it occurred and written an Internet book about it.

The effect of Ford's editing, Morningstar said, was to suggest that a bullet struck Kennedy in the neck, ''raising the wound two or three inches. Without that alteration, they could never have hoodwinked the public as to the true number of assassins.''

If the bullet had hit Kennedy in the back, it could not have struck Connolly in the way the commission said it did, he said.
http://whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO/POLITICS/JFK/ford.html

Apologists for the official, lone gunman story have claimed that JFK's shirt and jacket were "bunched up" so that the hole, although appearing in the back, actually lined up with the neck. This claim has been disproven (see here). On this evidence alone it can be concluded that Oswald could not have been solely responsible for the assassination.

Genetically-Modified, Oil-Eating Bacteria Creating Dangerous Mutant Organisms in the Gulf

Even the most creative science fiction movie could not have concocted the reality of what is taking place both in the Gulf of Mexico and around the world right now. Genetically-modified (GM), oil-eating bacteria introduced into the Gulf as part of the oil disaster's remediation efforts is reportedly causing the emergence of various other mutant bacteria, as well as increasingly-severe harm to humans and the environment.

Back in August, NaturalNews covered the story of Tel Aviv University scientists' proposal to use a natural oil-eating bacteria to help clean up the Gulf (http://www.naturalnews.com/029375_o...). But reports have now revealed that both scientists and BP knew of a "super" bacteria that was programmed to eat oil twice as fast as normal and set loose in the Gulf.

Mike Utsler, Chief Operating Officer of BP's Gulf Coast Restoration, publicly told BBC reporters that "[t]here is a new form of microbiology that is attacking this (oil) plume and using it as a food source." Shortly after admitting this on camera, other BP officials abruptly interjected and ended the interview.
http://www.naturalnews.com/031090_Gulf_of_Mexico_bacteria.html

I'm not sure how immedate or real is the threat of mutated oil eating bacteria but I thought to post this story in light of the fact that we know there are problems with many GM products.

At present ALL GM organisms should be held in quarantine for a number of decades until the effect of the modifications are fully understood.

New US Study: Scientists fear MMR link to Autism

By SALLY BECK, Mail on Sunday

New American research shows that there could be a link between the controversial MMR triple vaccine and autism and bowel disease in children.

The study appears to confirm the findings of British doctor Andrew Wakefield, who caused a storm in 1998 by suggesting a possible link.

Now a team from the Wake Forest University School of Medicine in North Carolina are examining 275 children with regressive autism and bowel disease - and of the 82 tested so far, 70 prove positive for the measles virus.

Last night the team's leader, Dr Stephen Walker, said: 'Of the handful of results we have in so far, all are vaccine strain and none are wild measles.

'This research proves that in the gastrointestinal tract of a number of children who have been diagnosed with regressive autism, there is evidence of measles virus.

'What it means is that the study done earlier by Dr Wakefield and published in 1998 is correct. That study didn’t draw any conclusions about specifically what it means to find measles virus in the gut, but the implication is it may be coming from the MMR vaccine. If that’s the case, and this live virus is residing in the gastrointestinal tract of some children, and then they have GI inflammation and other problems, it may be related to the MMR.'

The 1998 study by Dr Wakefield, then a reader in gastroenterology at the Royal Free Hospital in North London, and 12 other doctors claimed to have found a new bowel disease, autism enterocolitis.

At the time, Dr Wakefield said that although they had not proved a link between MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) and autism, there was cause for concern and the Government should offer the option single vaccines - instead of only MMRs - until more research had been done.

The paper - and the confused interpretation of its findings - caused uproar and led to many parents withdrawing their co-operation for the triple jab. Ten of the paper's authors also signed retractions on the interpretation but stood by the science.

This is the second independent study to back up Dr Wakefield. In 2001 John O'Leary, Professor of Pathology at St James's Hospital and Trinity College, Dublin, replicated his findings.

Last night Dr Wakefield said: 'This new study confirms what we found in British children and again with Professor O'Leary. The only exposure these children have had to measles is through the MMR vaccine.

'They were developing normally until they regressed. They now suffer autism and bowel disease.

'The Department of Health and some of the media wanted to dismiss our research as insignificant. The excuse was that no one else had the same findings as us. What they didn't say is that no one else had looked.'

A spokesman for the Department of Health said they had not read the American report, but added: 'MMR remains the best form of protection against measles, mumps and rubella.'

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-388051/Scientists-fear-MMR-link-autism.html#ixzz1C3y3ccmp

Fascinating. As pointed out earlier on this blog, the results from Dr Wakefield's investigation could be described as inconclusive. This larger study appears to confirm the concerns expressed by Dr Wakefield and his team.

Rather than being too hasty to dismiss various lines of inquiry into the causes of autism, one must be open minded in considering avenues of research and careful when ruling out possible causes. Obviously more investigation is needed but at the end of the day you must remember that autism is caused by SOMETHING. Investigate, investigate, investigate !

The 911 "Building What?" Campaign on Canadian Radio (94.3 Faith FM)

Building 7 was a 47-story skyscraper that was part of the World Trade Center complex. It would have been the tallest high-rise in 33 states. It collapsed at 5:20 pm on September 11, 2001. It was not hit by an airplane and suffered minimal damage compared to other buildings much closer to the Twin Towers.

Guests include: Bob McIlvaine, lost son in 9/11 attacks, New York, NY., Tony Szamboti, mechanical engineer, Blackwood, NJ., Mike Bondi, systems engineer, Stratford, ON., Laurie Manwell, Ph.D. candidate, author: In Denial of Democracy, Kitchener, ON.

A great radio segment covering the 911 terror attacks. The last 10 minutes of this clip (from 41:12) is EXCELLENT and deals with the psychological and social difficulty of acknowledging the controlled demolition of WTC7 on 911 for what it was.

The truth about 911 has always been held back by social/psychological resistance rather than due to a lack of empirical evidence. To combat this resistance continued educational efforts are needed.

Remember, only the truth about 911 will stop the war on terror ! We must deprogram the population so they can freely accept, look into and speak out about the 911 false flag attack.

The Iraq War Lies

Remember folks, the Iraq War was SOLD on LIES. There would have been NO conflict, and NO massive death toll without these lies. The War was completely unnecessary and constitutes a War Crime. War Crimes Trials need to be initiated immediately.

We know that the WMD lies in question were part of a deliberate, politically driven, deception since the intelligence indicated there was no credible threat from Saddam. It is therefore imperative that leaders such as Bush, Blair, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice and others be arrested and sent to the Hague for prosecution.

Note to Dr Hans Blix, our imperious Western leaders didn't go to war on any real material proof that Saddam was a threat. The intelligence reports Bush and Blair were privy to obviously hindered the War Agenda. Whether it was for good intentions (unlikely) or not, they criminally fabricated a case to make it look like Saddam still had WMD capability. For such actions they must stand trial. As evidence of this criminal manipulation of data I cite:

1. The Dodgy Dossier: The UK Government's obviously "sexed up" (2002) report on Saddam's WMDs containing the infamous "45 minute threat": http://www.abc.net.au/mediawatch/transcripts/s1041136.htm

2. Expert Testimony from the House Judiciary Committee Hearings: Executive Power & the Bush Administration (impeachment hearings): Note the books cited by the Committee Chair in the introductions to the speakers (from 2008):

a). Vincent Bugliosi on the October 2002 NIE, a document that was misrepresented to show Saddam as an imminent threat when the exact opposite was true. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcfpms98GeQ&feature=PlayList&p=9F833EE81EC327C0&index=28

b). Elizabeth Holtz. See time 7:46 where the witness talks about "deceptions with respect to the Iraq War..."
http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=AU&hl=en-GB&v=dohgkV53tBQ

3. The Downing Street Memos (2005) http://downingstreetmemo.com/ According to this highly placed UK memo, I quote: "the [US] intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy" so that War could be waged against Iraq.

4. US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence review of Iraq War Intelligence (June 5, 2008) http://intelligence.senate.gov/press/record.cfm?id=298775 Quote: "In making the case for war, the Administration repeatedly presented intelligence as fact when in reality it was unsubstantiated."

5. Australian Documentary "Truth, Lies and Intelligence" (from 2005) References to expert testimony on Iraq War Intelligence being fabricated: Greg Thielman, Joseph Wilson et al. The following is a short clip taken from the full length program: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ztzu0G8KcSA&feature=player_embedded

6: US 60 minutes Interview (2004) with ex-Bush Administration insider Paul O'Neal who stated that the Administration was looking for ways to launch a war with Iraq 10 days after the inauguration. Please ignore the sound effects on this promo clip and recognise the importance of the 60 minutes information: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEZnL_VVHPc&feature=player_embedded

7: NBC Keith Olbermann report on the non-profit Center for Public Integrity (google them) - tallied 935 false statements made by eight top members of the Administration in the two years after September 11th, including, obviously, the run up to the Iraq war (story from Feb 2008): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhKYc7cTZR4 One could postulate that the intelligence might have been mistaken, but as we have seen previously, in the other clips, the raw intelligence assessments did not correlate with what they were saying publicly (ie these are therefore more deliberate lies, unsubstantiated statements in conflict with intelligence facts).

Cosmic Rays Contribute 40 p.c. to Global Warming: Study

A key belief of climate science theology — that a reduction in carbon emissions will take care of the bulk of global warming — has been questioned in a scientific paper released by the Environment Ministry on Monday.

Physicist and the former ISRO chairman, U.R. Rao, has calculated that cosmic rays — which, unlike carbon emissions, cannot be controlled by human activity — have a much larger impact on climate change than The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) claims.

In fact, the contribution of decreasing cosmic ray activity to climate change is almost 40 per cent, argues Dr. Rao in a paper which has been accepted for publication in Current Science, the preeminent Indian science journal. The IPCC model, on the other hand, says that the contribution of carbon emissions is over 90 per cent.

We don't need a carbon tax just technology and systems to limit pollution.

The Media in America: Selling Views, Calling it News

America's journalists are not "news-hounds." They are nothing more than salesclerks, hocking the products their employers want to sell. The pretty faces that now function as most television news anchors are no different than the pretty models used to sell other products. The American "free" press is comprised of nothing more than a number of retail outlets which sell stories slanted to please their target audiences. As such, they exist merely to sell snake oil.
-------------------------------------
Everyone must remember that there is no Hippocratic Oath for journalists; a person does not have to swear to report events truthfully to be a journalist. In fact, less is required of a journalist than of the plumber you call to unstop your toilet. In short, today's American journalist can be likened to the teenager on roller skates who brings the hot dog you ordered to your car at Sonic or the clerk behind the counter at Macy's. So anyone who criticizes the mainstream press for not being truthful, neutral, or objective is misguided. That's not what the mainstream press sells and criticizing it is as unreasonable as criticizing McDonalds for not selling lamb chops.

US Agencies Still Fiddling Temperature Record, Reports SPPI

NASA and NOAA, which each receive close to half a billion dollars a year in taxpayer funding, have been systematically fiddling the worldwide temperature record for years, making “global warming” look worse than it is, according to a new paper by the Science and Public Policy Institute. The findings are reported by Joe D’Aleo, a leading meteorologist.

Robert Ferguson, President of SPPI, said: “Despite billions spent on official claims about the supposed threat of catastrophic man-made ‘global warming’, opinion polls show the public are no longer fooled. A main reason why the voters buy don’t climate alarmism any more is that the tiny but well-connected, lavishly-funded Climategate clique keeps on being caught out bending the scientific evidence.

The problem of data integrity has recently been commented on by MIT’s Dr. Richard Lindzen, “Inevitably in climate science, when data conflicts with models, a small coterie of scientists can be counted upon to modify the data...That the data should always need correcting to agree with models is totally implausible and indicative of a certain corruption within the climate science community.” Mr. D’Aleo’s paper is a damning exposé of the inner workings of two agencies of the US Government.

Monsanto’s Roundup Triggers Over 40 Plant Diseases and Endangers Human and Animal Health

Roundup Ready crops dominate US livestock feed. Soy and corn are most prevalent—93% of US soy and nearly 70% of corn are Roundup Ready. Animals are also fed derivatives of the other three Roundup Ready crops: canola, sugar beets, and cottonseed. Nutrient loss from glyphosate can therefore be severe.

This is especially true for manganese (Mn), which is not only chelated by glyphosate, but also reduced in Roundup Ready plants (see photo). One veterinarian finds low manganese in every livestock liver he measures. Another vet sent the liver of a stillborn calf out for testing. The lab report stated: No Detectible Levels of Manganese—in spite of the fact that the mineral was in adequate concentrations in his region. When that vet started adding manganese to the feed of a herd, disease rates dropped from a staggering 20% to less than ½%.

Veterinarians who started their practice after GMOs were introduced in 1996 might assume that many chronic or acute animal disorders are common and to be expected. But several older vets have stated flat out that animals have gotten much sicker since GMOs came on the scene. And when they switch livestock from GMO to non-GMO feed, the improvement in health is dramatic. Unfortunately, no one is tracking this, nor is anyone looking at the impacts of consuming milk and meat from GM-fed animals.
http://poorrichards-blog.blogspot.com/2011/01/monsantos-roundup-triggers-over-40.html

We're all in deep trouble. If nothing is done about this GM meddling we might indeed face an environmental disaster of apocalyptic proportions.

Blair's Letters to Bush about Invasion of Iraq 'were removed from official records for being sensitive', Iraq Inquiry Hears

Tony Blair's private letters to George Bush on Iraq were considered so sensitive they were expunged from the official Whitehall record, it was disclosed today.

Evidence released by the Iraq Inquiry shows that No 10 officials drew up two accounts of the then prime minister's dealings with the US President - with all references to their correspondence being removed from the version for general circulation.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1348597/Iraq-inquiry-Tony-Blairs-letters-George-Bush-removed-official-records.html

We know US and UK leaders DELIBERATELY lied to their people and fellow elected representatives about Saddam's WMD capabilities via the October 2002 National Intelligence Estimate summary (that was doctored) and the Dodgy Dossier among other things.

It appears that the removal of these Blair letters constitutes Guilty Demeanour.

Regardless of this investigation we already know the attack on Iraq was completely illegal under International Law. Blair, Bush et al need to be arrested immediately. We cannot continue to accept that some in our society are above the Law simply because they speak eloquently, wear suits, and get a free pass from the mainstream media.

Lies, Damned Lies, and Medical Science

That question has been central to Ioannidis’s career. He’s what’s known as a meta-researcher, and he’s become one of the world’s foremost experts on the credibility of medical research. He and his team have shown, again and again, and in many different ways, that much of what biomedical researchers conclude in published studies—conclusions that doctors keep in mind when they prescribe antibiotics or blood-pressure medication, or when they advise us to consume more fiber or less meat, or when they recommend surgery for heart disease or back pain—is misleading, exaggerated, and often flat-out wrong. He charges that as much as 90 percent of the published medical information that doctors rely on is flawed. His work has been widely accepted by the medical community; it has been published in the field’s top journals, where it is heavily cited; and he is a big draw at conferences. Given this exposure, and the fact that his work broadly targets everyone else’s work in medicine, as well as everything that physicians do and all the health advice we get, Ioannidis may be one of the most influential scientists alive. Yet for all his influence, he worries that the field of medical research is so pervasively flawed, and so riddled with conflicts of interest, that it might be chronically resistant to change—or even to publicly admitting that there’s a problem.

The 20-year DOJ veteran also criticized the administration's refusal to investigate or prosecute any serious criminal activities from the Bush-era, such as sanctioning the waterboarding of military detainees and directing the political firings of US Attorneys. These “at a minimum deserve complete investigation,” he said.

The Obama administration’s excuse “to look forward and not backward” fails to fulfill the agency’s “duty” to investigate, he said -- a charge that includes “any federal office holder who violates the Constitution or federal law."

“The department makes decisions based on the facts, evidence and the law, and nothing else," Justice Department spokeswoman Laura Sweeney remarked in an email to Raw Story.

Has justice gone 'gun-shy'?

Hebert, who served in multiple supervisory positions at the Department of Justice, commented that "everybody" from the Bush-era has seemed to land their own "get out of jail free card."

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2011/01/justice-dept-veteran-obama-sets-dangerous-precedent-letting-bush-officials-free/

Without justice there can be no peace.

The failure to prosecute, or even investigate, Bush officials who have violated US Law is, in itself, a crime. At best this shows a level of criminal negligence in allowing crimes to go unpunished or, in a worse case scenario, a criminal conspiracy on the part of President Barack Obama and Eric Holder to obstruct justice.

Stuxnet virus attack: Russia warns of ‘Iranian Chernobyl'

Russian nuclear scientists are providing technical assistance to Iran's attempts activate the country's first nuclear power plant at the Gulf port.

But they have raised serious concerns about the extensive damage caused to the plant's computer systems by the mysterious Stuxnet virus, which was discovered last year and is widely believed to have been the result of a sophisticated joint US-Israeli cyber attack.

According to Western intelligence reports, Russian scientists warned the Kremlin that they could be facing "another Chernobyl" if they were forced to comply with Iran's tight deadline to activate the complex this summer.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/russia/8262853/Stuxnet-virus-attack-Russia-warns-of-Iranian-Chernobyl.html

The D.U. contamination we find in the Middle East is already a disaster and this would be worse ! The most destructive rogue states are Israel and the USA. They must be held to account as much as any other nations. Without justice there can be no peace !

US Military Stuck in Perpetual Warfare

Fifty years ago, President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned United States citizens against the military industrial complex but it seems that warning was not taken to heart. Author Russ Baker says fifty years later, it is much worse than what Eisenhower warned against, it keeps us in a state of low grade panic all the time.



The guest here also mentions assassinations and mysterious deaths that surround the Washington power structure. A good interview, identifying key problems (ie media complicity) with a severely corrupted system.

Martin Luther King Assassinated by US Government: MLK Civil Trial Decision



Martin Luther King’s family and his attorney, William F. Pepper, won a civil trial that found US government agencies guilty in the wrongful death of Martin Luther King. The 1999 trial, King Family versus Jowers and Other Unknown Co-Conspirators, is the only trial ever conducted on the assassination of Dr. King. The King family’s attempts for a criminal trial were denied, as suspect James Ray’s recant of what he claimed was a false confession was denied.

For comparison, please consider the concentrated media coverage of O.J. Simpson’s trials.

The overwhelming evidence of government complicity introduced and agreed as comprehensively valid by the jury includes the 111th Military Intelligence Group were sent to Dr. King’s location, and that the usual police protection was pulled away just before the assassination. Military Intelligence set-up photographers on a roof of a fire station with a clear view to Dr. King’s balcony. 20th Special Forces Group had an 8-man sniper team at the assassination location on that day. Memphis police ordered the scene where multiple witnesses reported as the source of shooting cut down of their bushes that would have hid a sniper team. Along with sanitizing a crime scene, police abandoned investigative procedure to interview witnesses who lived by the scene of the shooting.

http://www.examiner.com/la-county-nonpartisan-in-los-angeles/mlk-assassinated-by-us-government-martin-luther-king-civil-1999-decision

The shadow government responsible for the deaths of US civil rights leaders in the 1960s didn't simply disappear. Indeed, the troubles we face today are a DIRECT RESULT of these actions, and the contining actions of a very corrupt government.

It is therefore imperative that we speak out against assassinations, and also false flag terrorism, so we can put a stop to this deadly and destructive game. We must speak out in the face of the mainstream media silence on these most important issues ...

Tenth Year of Torture: Guantanamo Still Violating Cuba's Sovereignty

The Guantanamo Bay detention centre has entered the tenth year of its controversial existence. And there are no signs that U.S. President Obama will be shutting it down any time soon. The American presence there follows a deal struck over a century ago but calls are growing stronger from Havana that the U.S is violating Cuba's sovereignty.

Fallujah: City of No Children

It was recently reported that doctors had advised women in Fallujah not to give birth. There are many medical reasons for infertility which might shatter the dreams of a young woman. It is not difficult to imagine how heartbreaking it must be for a woman who is advised that she can never bear children. But for the young women of an entire city – tens of thousands of them – to be advised not to give birth, how can one imagine such collective pain? But perhaps it does not matter – one life is a tragedy, a million a statistic? Certainly this episode attracted limited press attention.
------------------------------------
In the USA, Leuren Moret, a geoscientist and geologist has said: "Of 251 Gulf War I veterans in Mississippi, in 67 percent of them, their babies born after the war were deemed to have severe birth defects. They had brains missing, arms and legs missing, organs missing. They were born without eyes. They had horrible blood diseases. It’s horrific." Perhaps the warning given to the women of Fallujah should have been extended to service personnel?

US Housing Slump Worse than the Great Depression

Zillow's reports:

The Zillow Home Value Index has now fallen 26% since its peak in June 2006. That’s more than the 25.9% decline in the Depression-era years between 1928 and 1933.
November marked the 53rd consecutive month of home value declines, with the Zillow Home Value Index (ZHVI) falling 0.8% from October to November, and falling 5.1% year-over-year.
***
In the near term, home values will continue to fall thanks to excess inventory of homes, high negative equity and foreclosure rates, and weakened demand due to elevated unemployment.
The mainstream media is starting to pick up on the story.

For example, Reuters
writes:

Home prices fell for the 53rd consecutive month in November, taking the decline past that of the Great Depression for the first time in the prolonged housing slump, according to Zillow.

Chinese Rating Agency Says U.S. Debt Has SAME Credit Rating As Costco Stores, Calculates U.S. ACTUAL GDP At $5 Tillion, Not The Official $14 Trillion

The Chinese rating agency, which hit headlines earlier this year for its AA-view on the United States, is back, with another US downgrade.

From the 10-Page Downgrade Report:

The serious defects in the United States economic development and management model will lead to the long-term recession of its national economy, fundamentally lowering the national solvency. The new round of quantitative easing monetary policy adopted by the Federal Reserve has brought about an obvious trend of depreciation of the U.S. dollar, and the continuation and deepening of credit crisis in the U.S.

Such a move entirely encroaches on the interests of the creditors, indicating the decline of the U.S. government’s intention of debt repayment. Analysis shows that the crisis confronting the U.S. cannot be ultimately resolved through currency depreciation. On the contrary, it is likely that an overall crisis might be triggered by the U.S. government’s policy to continuously depreciate the U.S. dollar against the will of creditors.

http://dailybail.com/home/chinese-rating-agency-says-us-as-creditworthy-as-costco-pegs.html

The USA definitely a HUGE risk to creditors. This becomes more obvious when you accept that America is in an economic depression and the only thing keeping it "afloat" is fraud and money printing.

The Uncomfortable Truth About Mind Control: Is Free Will Simply a Myth?

What Bill and the other volunteers who took part weren't told was that the electric shocks were fake – and that both the Experimenter and the Learner were actors. The real purpose of the experiment was to see how far the volunteers would go. Stanley Milgram had asked colleagues how many people they thought would go all the way and administer a lethal 450-volt shock. Most said less than 1 per cent – and those would probably be psychopaths.

Yet Bill, like 65 per cent of the volunteers, gave an apparently lethal electric shock when told to do so.

I remember thinking, when I first read this, that such a figure was completely unbelievable. I was absolutely certain, and I'm sure everyone who read about Milgram's work was equally certain, that I would never give a fatal electric shock to someone simply because I had been asked to do so by someone in authority. It is inconceivable that I could be manipulated in this way.

Perhaps, I thought, the volunteers had deep-down realised that this was a fake experiment, that they were just playing along. When critics put this point to Milgram he scathingly responded, "the suggestion that the subjects only feigned sweating, trembling, and stuttering to please the Experimenter is pathetically detached from reality, equivalent to the statement that haemophiliacs bleed to keep their physicians busy".
-----------------------------------
... humans have a tendency to blindly follow orders, if they are presented in a plausible fashion by someone who is apparently in authority. What these experiments revealed was just how strong this "tendency" really is. Psychology, which is often criticised for discovering the bleeding obvious, had shown that it was capable of making surprising, original, disturbing contributions to our understanding of ourselves.
http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/features/the-uncomfortable-truth-about-mind-control-is-free-will-simply-a-myth-2177014.html

People who live in normal society, who are trapped in the mainstream information bubble, will accept many stories and situations that, to the more well informed and introspective, appear completely unreasonable.

It is because of our tendency to fit within "social norms" we must train ourselves to think independently. At present too many people in the educated Western world remain unaware and not sufficiently concerned about the manufactured wars, fake terrorism and financial corruption that is all about us.

Too many are taught to accept the "it's all under control" memes pushed by the talking heads on TV.

ps. Free will exists (I think!) but we obviously have to work at maintaining it.

Mercury Exposure Makes People Go Nuts

It is very interesting to note that that everyone is concerned in this video about green house gasses from coal fired plants but nothing is mentioned of the 50 tons of mercury that these plants put into the atmosphere each and every year in the United States alone. Coal plants put out lots of nasty stuff that have covered the globe but none as nasty as mercury. Now that the greenhouse gas theory has been run down by increasing global cooling we do not have to worry about CO2 emissions, unless one wants to worry because one has nothing better to do, but we do have to worry about many of the other foul emissions, especially that of mercury. After all without sufficient CO2 we would all be dead.

In a recent Associated Press release we find out that along a stretch of Highway 21, in a pastoral, hilly region of Texas, is a vegetative wasteland. Trees are barren, or covered in gray, dying foliage and peeling bark. Fallen dead limbs litter the ground where pecan growers and ranchers have watched trees die slow, agonizing deaths. Visible above the horizon is what many plant specialists, environmentalists, and scientists believe to be the culprit: the Fayette Power Project—a coal-fired power plant that for nearly 30 years has operated mostly without equipment designed to decrease emissions of sulfur dioxide, a component of acid rain.

Jim Berry, a horticulturalist who owns a wholesale nursery in Grand Saline, Texas describes a 30-mile stretch of Highway 21 as a place where “The plant community was just devastated. There was an environmental catastrophe. It wasn’t just the pecan groves. It was the entire ecosystem that was under duress,” Berry said recently. Pecan grower Harvey Hayek said, “Everywhere you look, it’s just dead, dead, dead.” Coal is really dirty stuff and we get exactly what we expect in terms of environmental degradation. Sulfur dioxide is just one of many pollutants that degrade life forms but in terms of toxicity nothing is as potent per gram as mercury.

Mercury-contaminated brains are
not going to function normally.

One does not have to be overdeveloped in the intelligence department to understand that a highly potent neurological poison can cause neurological problems in animals and humans exposed to it. Hotwiring of neurological tissues with mercury leads to serious problems such as diminished sexual development and fertility—which covers only a sliver of the full range of pathology that can manifest from mercury contamination. Mercury can be contained in the smoke stacks but the government does not even bother to regulate the industry’s output of mercury. They would rather spend billions of dollars radiating or feeling people up at the airport than contain the real threat of mercury pollution.

Viking Found Organics on Mars, Experiment Confirms

Using Mars-like soil taken from Atacama Desert, a study confirms Mars has organics, and Viking found them.

THE GIST:

A reanalysis of Mars Viking experiments shows the probes did find organics.

The result was not initially understood due to the strong oxidation effects of a salt in the Mars soil known as perchlorate.

A follow-up study on perchlorate-enhanced soil similar to what's found on Mars revealed fingerprints of combusted organics.
----------------------------------
New evidence for organics on Mars does not mean Viking found life, cautions McKay.

"Finding organics is not evidence of life or evidence of past life. It's just evidence for organics," he said.

But if NASA had realized there were organics on Mars, there might not have been a 20-year hiatus in sending landers for follow-up studies ...
http://news.discovery.com/space/viking-mars-organics-experiment.html

With a very wet history Mars probably still has some life remaining on the planet. If Mars life did not arise independently from Earth then I'm sure it was contaminated by bacteria from our end. Also, I am guessing that the NASA censorship and manipulation of data concerning Mars imagery is intended to hide such evidence.

New study from Ann Arbor toxicologist links Fallujah birth defects to U.S. weapons

A new study has shed light on the massive surge in post-war birth defects in Fallujah, Iraq, showing for the first time that an epidemic of reproductive abnormalities has likely been caused by the presence of metals in the environment, potentially from the residues of munitions used by American armed forces on the city in 2004.

A team of four researchers: environmental toxicologist Mozhgan Savabieasfahani of Ann Arbor, Samira Alaani of Fallujah General Hospital, Mohammad Tafash of Al-Anbar University in Fallujah, and geneticist Paola Manduca of the University of Genoa in Italy, conducted the study, which has drawn international attention from outlets such as the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), Al Jazeera, and The Guardian newspaper of London.

The results were recently published in the peer-reviewed International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health and show a major rise in chronic, devastating birth defects of the neural, cardiac, and skeletal variety at a rate about 11 times higher than originally estimated.
http://uruknet.com/?p=m73705&hd=&size=1&l=e

The use of Depleted Uranium weapons is criminal. Places like Fallujah are now contaminated for many hundreds of thousands of years. This a disgrace on the whole of humanity.

Skeptical Inquirer Attacks 9/11 Truth Movement, Avoids Vast Body of Scientific Evidence

For 35 years, Skeptical Inquirer has fought the good fight. The bimonthly magazine publication of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry seeks to “criticize claims of the paranormal and pseudoscience,” promote “a balanced view of science in the mass media” and “teach critical thinking in schools,” according to CSI founder Paul Kurtz. Despite this noble mission, Skeptical Inquirer recently delivered what its author probably believed was a fiery smack-down to the 9/11 Truth movement.

Rutgers sociology professor Ted Goertzel’s double-length cover story in the January/February 2011 issue, “The Conspiracy Meme – Why Conspiracy Theories Appeal and Persist,” lumps the 9/11 Truth movement in with the “faked Moon landing,” and “AIDS was a government plot to kill gay people.” While Goertzel does some analysis and draws conclusions regarding the “conspiracy mindset,” when it comes to 9/11, he ignores the most important evidence. He indulges himself in ad hominems and other fallacies that, in particular he should know about, given how he and the periodical for which he is writing have positioned and marketed themselves. He’s dismissive and even derisive – in violation of the magazine’s stated policies.
------------------------------------
According to Goertzel, “The more vast and powerful the alleged conspiracy, the less likely that it could have remained undiscovered.” He thus feels that it is highly unlikely that the Moon landing could have been a hoax, since it would entail “the complicity of thousands,” whereas claims of a conspiracy such as Watergate are far more plausible and worth investigating since only a small handful of personnel were involved.

However, this theory falls to the ground when one notes that massive secret projects have succeeded, such as the Manhattan Project – surely familiar to Goertzel – and Operation Gladio, which involved undeniable terrorist acts, planned and executed against European citizens at the behest of NATO governments for more than three decades, which nonetheless remained unknown and unreported until years later, and still remains virtually unknown in the United States.

Further, Goertzel misses that the deception known as 9/11 has been exposed by hundreds of researchers, validated by the 1,400 architects and engineers who have signed the AE911Truth petition calling on Congress for a new investigation. These researcher/activists have been assiduously ignored and lambasted by the US corporate and alternative media.

Perhaps Mr. Goertzel is to be forgiven for not knowing that hundreds of whistleblowers and first responders have also been crying foul for a decade about other aspects of the official account. A majority of the 9/11 Commissioners have publicly stated that they were repeatedly lied to by the Bush administration, the CIA, FBI and NORAD, their investigation efforts blocked. Whatever is behind the cover-up, for Goertzel to deny that there has even been a cover-up is irresponsible.
http://ae911truth.org/en/news/41-articles/429-skeptical-inquirer.html

I would hazard a guess that for 35 years the Skeptical Inquirer has NOT been "fighting the good fight". It is highly likely that this institution has been at pains to "debunk" any material that has been deemed a threat to the US military industrial complex. It would be interesting to see what they had to say about the dangers posed from the mercury based preservatives used in many vaccines, the toxicity of Depleted Uranium dust, the safety of GMO products like corn etc.

Likely some, perhaps most, of the Skeptics involved here genuinely believe that their attacks upon "controversial" subjects are necessary. I know many of them are concerned about the rise of an intellectual "Dark Age". However, I would ask them, how logical is it to lump all manner of subjects like moon landing hoaxes, reptilian conspiracies and other matters with zero or low levels of supporting evidence, with things like 911 truth or the other issues mentioned in the opening paragraph that are extremely well documented ?

Yes, certain "safe" issues are well addressed by the Skeptics. Indeed, not every claimed conspiracy theory is backed by good, if any, evidence. However, the central problem, raised by the Inquirer's attack on 911 truth, is that many Skeptics appear to be acting as cynics, not analysts, and engage in presumptive dismissals of ALL conspiracy subjects from a highly superficial perspective.

Rather than seeing consistent balanced criticisms in all instances, where hard evidence for or against a conspiracy assertion is fairly tested, the Skeptics will often employ the types of underhanded and invalid attacks (disinformation strategies) that we have seen being used against 911 Truth - ie ad hominem attacks, distortions, omissions, false explanations, unjustified dismissals of evidence etc.

All of this sort of behaviour cannot be explained away as merely something related to being deluded or simply mistaken.

Because of the many instances of this over-the-top dishonest behaviour by highly intelligent people it appears that some, or perhaps most, of the prominent Skeptics appearing in the mainstream press over the years are actually agents of the Government.

Readers should note that in the past the mainstream media, and many magazine editors/owners, have been the target of US Government control through the CIA's Operation Mockingbird. In all likelihood these CIA programs continue today.

Consider that there are now more than 840,000 people in the US with "Top Secret"security clearances (this figure does not include the many more individuals that have a lower form of security clearance) some of whom may be employed in efforts to control public opinion.

Futhermore we also have the FBI's COINTELPRO program which is another example of information or behaviour control/manipulation. With so many deceptions afoot you can bet that an objective assessment concerning many conspiracy issues is being denied. The nature of the Skeptical Inquirer's argument makes it very suspicious.

The Inquirer's piece looks to be part of an organised efffort to put a lid on 911 truth. It will fail because once again, in the face of the hard evidence, it is transparent as disinformation. If this is the best they can put out then the 911 truth deniers(!) have already lost.

Nine Breakthroughs In Alternative Energy [vids]

Oil has been the lifeblood of our modern civilization for the last hundred years, and we have become dangerously dependent on it. As demand ramps up in the developing world, easily accessible reserves continue to diminish. Experts and executives alike have highlighted a return to $150 per barrel oil in their predictions for 2011. If this price for oil becomes reality, it will virtually suck the remaining wealth out of an economy that is already in critical condition, just as it did before the financial collapse of 2008.

Oil presents other problems ranging from its location in unfriendly parts of the world, increased cost of extraction, cartel control over pricing and supply, costs of wars to secure it, its inherently non-renewable and polluting nature, to theories of Peak Oil. It is a fragile system, to say the least, which has driven new innovation into alternative energy.

Only good can come from such endeavors, so it is worth examining 9 potential breakthroughs that will boost the energy revolution:
http://www.activistpost.com/2011/01/9-breakthroughs-to-boost-coming-energy.html

[see the link for video clips]

Many "skeptics" will claim that certain alternative energy technologies do not work , that they represent "quack" science. Such claims ignore the politics behind the energy industry. Only by seeing truly independent analyses on various ideas and machines can we be sure to rule them out. It is wise to remain somewhat open minded here.

Readers should note that most of the videos at the link do not deal with the "quack" aspects to alternative energy but with real breakthroughs in technology. Please check out the clips.

We are not going to be stuck with using oil and coal to generate electricity and fuel. There is a place for continued, more limited use of these materials, but we can better preserve the stuff (for making plastics) by switching to solar, wind, chemical, mechanical and nuclear sources to produce cheap electricity.

Wayne Madsen: Sweden co-opted by CIA/Pentagon to Launder Wikileaks Cables

WMR has learned from a long-time Republican Party consultant that the CIA used Sweden to launder the transfer to Wikileaks of carefully screened and redacted State Department cables and the subsequent release of the cables to pre-selected corporate news media entities. Sweden was chosen because of its so-called “press freedom and freedom of expression” traditions in an effort to make the release of the cables by Wikileaks appear to be unconnected to a covert CIA and Pentagon psychological operations program designed to place further controls on the Internet.

What is the Wikileaks End Game ?

Let's cut to the chase. If we assume wikileaks is being manipulated or run by the intelligence agencies of the US and Israel then we can expect this is being done for a purpose.

If the operation aims to "shut down" the presently Free Internet, expect wikileaks to begin acting irresponsibly by releasing severely damaging material that will lead to the deaths of many people.

Expect the wikileaks directors to bluntly refuse to apologise for any harm their actions cause making them out to be enemies of the peace. A repeated pattern of this kind of behaviour would allow the controlled media to criticise the idea of having unrestrained free speech and will help stifle dissent when restrictive controls are placed on the Internet.

Assange may likely be cast as a villian here, a betrayer of the people and an example of the danger posed by those with "radical" or independent minds.

On the other hand, Wikileaks may be maintained in its current form to disseminate propaganda against Iran, North Korea and other countries that are strategic targets of those involved in this operation.

Also, wikileaks may be left to operate as trap to catch real leakers. Those who are unaware of the deception may be exposed and stopped before they can harm the military industrial complex.

Further, Wikileaks may possibly be maintained for purely psychological purposes as a control vent for many frustrated people seeking justice around the world. The type of information being "exposed" will be kept at the present level - nothing very much about US/Israeli war crimes - with the spin on what does comes out being handled by the corporate (military/industrial) press.

Don't get me wrong here. The release of the cable information thus far is mighty useful. Wiki has drawn attention to many matters which had only been reported in the Alternative media, stuff that had been swept under the rug.

However the material being released here is not the whole story of the corruption we know about from online reporting. Wikileaks has not really changed anything in relation to the corrupt system we live under. If we had cables dealing with heinous breaches of Law, information that would lead to criminal inquiries, then things might be different ...

Just be cautious about wikileaks. Evaluate everything coming out of this organisation on its own merits and be aware of the outcomes of these information releases.

Massive US Debt to be Used to Enable the Corporate Kleptocracy

The United States is in serious debt but the latest numbers show the US national debt has surpassed $14 trillion. From June, 2010 until the end of the year the US racked up another trillion dollars worth of debt. Economist Michael Hudson says the important thing to realize is the government doesn't borrow money it creates it, the whole issue of whether the US has a debt problem is largely fictitious.



Note: the real US debt level, including unfunded liabilities, exceeds 40 trillion dollars, not 14 trillion.

Col. Sabrosky's Challenge to Local VFW Posts on 911 Truth

The problem is now political, as truth adherents probe the wall of silence and recalcitrance among our high officials and prosecutors, who tremble at even allowing the words 911 Truth to slip from their lips lest it end careers, or in the case of the psychotics we have possibly uncovered, even more. Dr. Alan Sabrosky, for five years Director of Studies U.S. Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, and holder of the General of the Army Douglas MacArthur Chair of Research, Vietnam veteran and 10-year US Marine, has suggested that the nation's salvation lies in the hands of its local veterans posts. Sabrosky has outlined as close as we have come to a roadmap to justice, and restoration of the Constitution and the Republic.

Sabrosky says the local veterans posts have not been "bought-out," in contrast to our national leaders and institutions or even the national leadership of the VFW, American Legion, and other large veterans organizations. Sabrosky says these posts are not aware of their own power, and deploy usually only in support veterans benefits and issues. Were a single local veterans post to issue a call to its local, not national, media, for prosecutions for 911, the sea change would begin.

Before the investigation preceding a prosecution we do not know who may be guilty, we have only suspects. This is why prosecutors are empowered with subpoenas and budgets. To the ridiculous refrain we hear from OCT apologists, "where's the proof?" - this is obviously placing the cart before the horse. All that is required to initiate a prosecution is evidence of foul play and/or criminal conspiracy. To those who mock conspiracy theories: if there were none, then why is the charge on the books? Why have a law against something that never happens?

At this juncture in the movement for 911 truth, the evidence seems to be clearest against three men for imminent prosecutions, who are innocent until found guilty just as the Founders intended, as a starting point for unraveling the mystery. Because 911 harmed the entire nation like no other crime before it, any prosecutor in the nation can claim jurisdiction, under the "effects" doctrine, which is well-settled law. The point of course is to turn charges which can be easily proven into testimony which peels the curtain away from the enterprise, and enables further charges against further players.
http://poorrichards-blog.blogspot.com/2011/01/by-alan-sabrosky-at-dailypaul.html

The tyrants are still pulling the strings at the moment. The US Federal Government & the corporate media looks after special interests, not the people. The truth about 911 will really shake things up and change the landscape a whole lot. People will learn that they will need to have a hyper-transparent Government so there can be no secret meetings, lobby groups, money, etc. The Federal Government should only assist the States, not dominate them. Power needs to be DECENTRALISED and put back in local hands.

Mossad Behind Egypt Church Blast [?]

The explosion at a church in the Egyptian city of Alexandria, which left 21 people killed and another 80 Muslims and Christians wounded, raises one question: Who was behind the blast?

Although, at first glance, the finger is pointed at extremist Wahabi or Salafi groups, it goes without saying that no Muslim, whatever their political leanings may be, will ever commit such an inhumane act.

Attacks on churches in Egypt, Lebanon, Iraq and Tunisia can be analyzed in the context of a Zionist scenario aimed at driving a wedge between Muslims and Arab Christians.

Since the emergence of Islam, Muslims and Christians in the East have always coexisted peacefully as Islam pays due respect to the freedom of divine faiths -- especially Christianity.

In Egypt, too, Muslims and Christians are living in peace and harmony. Never, ever have the Christians in Egypt complained of any problems keeping them from carrying out their religious duties.

The fresh plot by terrorists to target churches is an organized Zionist scenario aimed at creating a rift between Muslims and Christians.

Following its intelligence and security failures in Egypt and the apprehension of a number of Mossad agents by Egyptian intelligence apparatus, the Zionist regime of Israel is set to exact vengeance on the Egyptian nation.
http://poorrichards-blog.blogspot.com/2011/01/mossad-behind-egypt-church-blast.html

The timing of the attack was very suspicious but at this stage there is no proof as to who was responsible. I have posted this story in light of the claims that it HAD to be the work of an "Al Qaeda-esque" group. The people in Egypt who have lost loved ones in the bombing must consider what may really be going on before jumping to conclusions.

Despite the Mainstream Media Circus concerning the Wakefield Study Fraud, Thimerosal [mercury] is still Dangerous.

It looks like there may be a push on to discredit claims that the MMR vaccines are harmful. If they contain harmful preservatives, like Thimerosal, then they must be considered a risk to your health.

Check out the news headlines on the alleged fraud concerning the Wakefield study into the relationship between Autism and the MMR vaccine:
http://www.google.com.au/search?sourceid=navclient&aq=5h&oq=&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4GGIC_enAU311AU311&q=vaccine+study+fraud

After looking at various reviews of this Wakefield study I concluded that the results were inconclusive. You could not make any conclusion about Autism and vaccines, either positive or negative, from the study ! A larger study with better testing methods would have been the way to go after this failed attempt ... [See bottom of this article on an analysis of the Wakefield study by Professor Greenhalgh.]

Regardless of the Wakefield situation we know that mercury, used in the Thimerosal vaccine preservative, is highly toxic. There is no obfuscating this fact (see here, here, here and here).

Furthermore, there is also huge risk to unborn children who have mercury introduced into their bodies via the mother. The danger is not simply to people and children taking their mandatory shots. Injections into a pregnant woman that include toxic substances will have a bearing on the unborn. Also, many cosmetics use Thimerosal which goes under the trade name Merthiolate. When tiny amounts of mercury are damaging to a developing nervous system then fetal damage via cosmetic contamination is also real danger.

I found this article, that covers the toxic effects of mercury, including the numerous attempts to conceal or downplay its harmful nature, very very instructive (see below). The article here begins with the massive mercury poisoning that happened in Minamata, Japan and then moves on to more subtle vaccine related poisoning issues. This is a very good but fairly long article: ww.heavymetaldetox.net/research

Here is a much shorter article that covers many of the bases mentioned in the link above. Check it out too: http://www.ewg.org/node/8504

All this hype about vaccine-thimerosal safety is starting to bug me. So what if one study is flawed ?? One might think we're being set up for another swine flu scare so we can line the pockets of the vaccine makers.

Wakefield study Analysis:

I ran across this page which is an analysis of the Wakefield study by Professor Trisha Greenhalgh. She makes a number of good points about the flawed nature of the investigation and that the results were inconclusive given what happened. She mentioned that further research would be helpful: http://briandeer.com/mmr/lancet-greenhalgh.htm

The problem with Professor Greenhalgh's article is that she says that further research has been done that rules out any dangers posed by the MMR vaccine:

"A study from Finland, designed to be large enough pick up even very rare events, followed 1.8 million children prospectively from the day they received the MMR vaccine for a full 14 years. The total number of reported vaccine-associated events was 437, and they included allergic reactions and convulsions, but none of the children had autism linked with the vaccine.

Several subsequent studies, all much larger and better designed than Wakefield’s, have confirmed an absence of excess cases of autism or bowel disease in children who have received MMR vaccine. In 1999, for example, Dr Brent Taylor looked at 500 cases of autism in the Royal Free Hospital and found no excess in immunised children. A very large and well designed study in the USA – with a proper case control design and with all vaccination dates confirmed by medical records – looked at the incidence of inflammatory bowel disease in people who had received MMR vaccine, other measles-containing vaccine, and no vaccine. The risk of inflammatory bowel disease was the same for vaccinated or unvaccinated people."

However there is strong criticism against the methodology and findings of the two studies she cites directly:

Criticism of Dr Taylor's UK study: http://legacy.autism.com/ari/editorials/ed_autismincrease.htm

Criticism of the Finish study, that was not even conducted with a goal of establishing a link between autism and the MMR vaccine:
http://www.whale.to/vaccine/yazbak6.html

The unnamed US study cited by the Professor may or may not have been rigged. However, the pattern thus far has been one of duplicity.
