Blowback: Iran War Games in the Straits of Hormuz



The US has unnecessarily pushed Iran into a corner with economic sanctions. It is only reasonable to expect some level of response from Iran.

This entire situation can be easily resolved if the West backs off and lets Iran follow IAEA protocol in its development of a civilian nuclear reactor. Real peace can be achieved via building trade relations and opening up contacts.

Fed Secretly Bailing Out Europe

A former Fed official says in the Wall Street Journal that the Federal Reserve is covertly bailing out Europe. Insight with Gerald O'Driscoll, Cato Institute senior fellow, who says the Fed operated a "temporary U.S. dollar liquidity swap arrangement."



They want to keep the scam running as long as possible to keep raking in the bonuses- and to use the present system as strategic leverage ... keeping everyone in the same boat.

Research Article/CANCER: Metabolic Modulation of Glioblastoma with Dichloroacetate

Abstract:

Solid tumors, including the aggressive primary brain cancer glioblastoma multiforme, develop resistance to cell death, in part as a result of a switch from mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation to cytoplasmic glycolysis. This metabolic remodeling is accompanied by mitochondrial hyperpolarization. We tested whether the small-molecule and orphan drug dichloroacetate (DCA) can reverse this cancer-specific metabolic and mitochondrial remodeling in glioblastoma. Freshly isolated glioblastomas from 49 patients showed mitochondrial hyperpolarization, which was rapidly reversed by DCA. In a separate experiment with five patients who had glioblastoma, we prospectively secured baseline and serial tumor tissue, developed patient-specific cell lines of glioblastoma and putative glioblastoma stem cells (CD133+, nestin+ cells), and treated each patient with oral DCA for up to 15 months. DCA depolarized mitochondria, increased mitochondrial reactive oxygen species, and induced apoptosis in GBM cells, as well as in putative GBM stem cells, both in vitro and in vivo. DCA therapy also inhibited the hypoxia-inducible factor–1α, promoted p53 activation, and suppressed angiogenesis both in vivo and in vitro. The dose-limiting toxicity was a dose-dependent, reversible peripheral neuropathy, and there was no hematologic, hepatic, renal, or cardiac toxicity. Indications of clinical efficacy were present at a dose that did not cause peripheral neuropathy and at serum concentrations of DCA sufficient to inhibit the target enzyme of DCA, pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase II, which was highly expressed in all glioblastomas. Metabolic modulation may be a viable therapeutic approach in the treatment of glioblastoma.

If you have "untreatable" cancer it might be worth talking to your doctor about DCA.

Actors and Artists for 911 Truth

Confession of a 9/11 Conspirator is a feature film willing to do what the world’s governments and legal bodies are unwilling to do – open a new investigation of 9/11 for the entire world to see.

Many of our fellow actors and artists have agreed to perform in the film: Ed Asner, Martin Sheen, Woody Harrelson, Daniel Sunjata, John Heard, Michelle Phillips, Joseph Culp, Paul Cross, Nick Mancuso and Judd Nelson - with many still to be cast
.
http://www.actorsandartistsfor911truth.org/

In a world obsessed with celebrities this group, with their ability to connect to the population at large, should do well in the fight to speak truth to power.

Remember the truth about 911 will end the war on terror !

And please note, these artists are closely linked to the Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth group. You can see from the material they are promoting at their AA911 web page that they are extremely well informed.

Obama Year Three: Continuing His "Rogue Agenda"

In 2011, Obama continued the destructive pattern he followed in years one and two. Throughout his tenure, he's done what supporters thought impossible.

Across the board on domestic and foreign issues, he governed to the right of George Bush. He's waged multiple imperial wars, plans others, looted the nation's wealth, wrecked the economy, consigned growing millions to impoverishment without jobs, and institutionalized tyranny to target dissenters challenging political corruption, corporate crooks, or abuse of power lawlessness.

He also promotes regime change in Syria, Iran, Venezuela, Lebanon, and other independent states. In addition, he targets Russia's military strength and China's growing economic might. At the same time, he supports ruthless, corrupt tyrants.

Moreover, he authorized indefinitely detaining anyone called a national security threat without charge (including US citizens). He continues Bush's rendition and torture policies, authorized killing US citizens abroad, (like Anwar Al-Awaki for opposing America's belligerency), and deployed Special Forces death squads covertly to 120 or more countries.

A SHORT HISTORY OF US GOVERNMENT RESPECT FOR HUMAN LIFE

Does our government respect human life the way it claims to do?

Hardly. And being a soldier is no deterrent.

Ignore for a moment the lies surrounding 9-11, TWA 800, the USS Iowa, and the Gulf of Tonkin, and step back into horrid history with me.

PUBLIC LAW 95-79 [P.L. 95-79]
TITLE 50, CHAPTER 32, SECTION 1520
"CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL WARFARE PROGRAM"

"The use of human subjects will be allowed for the testing of chemical and biological agents by the U.S. Department of Defense, accounting to Congressional committees with respect to the experiments and studies."

"The Secretary of Defense [may] conduct tests and experiments involving the use of chemical and biological [warfare] agents on civilian populations [within the United States]."

http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/biowar.html

There's a huge chronological list of various biowar and chemical experiments undertaken by agents of the US Government at the link. Check it out.

The WRH.com post here is obviously designed to snap people out of thinking that "their Government" is out to protect their rights. This thinking is erroneous. Key sections of the US Government act to protect the interests of the State, military and corporations - often at the expense of various people's health and rights.

Russian vs US Elections

Russia's December 4 elections filled 450 State Duma seats, Russia's Federal Assembly lower house.

Claims of electoral fraud followed. All elections have irregularities. At issue is whether results are comprised. Election monitor Golos accusations were spurious. America's National Endowment for Democracy (NED) funds it. It supports regime change in non-US client states.

It backs opposition groups, conducts propaganda campaigns, and does openly what CIA operatives do covertly to destabilize sitting governments.

Its mission is subverting, not promoting democracy. It operates with State Department funding and direction. It serves US imperial interests destructively against targeted countries.

So do USAID, the International Republican Institute (IRI), and the National Democratic Institute (NDI). They meddle internally against sitting governments. One way is by funding Golos.

It calls itself a Russian NGO established in 2000 to defend democratic rights and civil liberties. Claiming it's Russia's only "independent" electoral watchdog is duplicitous. It represents imperial Washington's interests against those of Russia's people and government. Moreover, by taking foreign funding, it violated Russian law.
-------------------------------
Election 2004 was worse than 2000. The 2002 Help America Vote Act (HAVA) smoothed the way with electronic ease. It was the first electoral law designed to facilitate fraud. It initiated privatized voting.

Kerry was heavily favored. Florida and Ohio proved decisive. Both were stolen for Bush. Incontrovertible evidence proved it. Voter disenfranchisement was rife.

Nearly half those requesting absentee ballots never got them. However, military personnel expected to support Bush received theirs.

The Republican National Committee hired consulting firm Sproul & Associates to register voters in six battleground states. They refused to register Democrats.

Malfunctioning New Mexico voting machines wiped out 20,000 votes to let Bush carry the state by a 5,988 margin.

Faulty voting equipment spoiled one million or more ballots. Another three million Black and Latino district ones weren't counted.

Exit polls in 30 or more states differed from final results by amounts beyond margins of error. In all but four states, discrepancies favored Bush. Exit polling is acknowledged to be highly reliable. Election 2004 was the exception to reelect Bush when, in fact, Kerry won handily.

Ohio was especially rigged. Tens of thousands of eligible voters were illegally purged from rolls. Nearly 360,000 overwhelmingly Democrat voters were prevented from casting ballots or didn't get theirs counted. Bush's victory margin was 118,599.

Republican precincts outnumbered Democrat ones. Democrat precincts got fewer voting machines than Republican ones. People waited up to 12 hours to vote. Some gave up and went home. Others were told they were at the wrong precinct.

One in four registrants were told they weren't listed. Republican Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell purged them illegally.

These and other practices were rampant in Ohio, Florida, and other key battleground states. As a result, voter preferences didn't count. Major media scoundrels suppressed truth to reelect Bush over Kerry who won handily but gave it up without protest.

http://www.rense.com/general95/russelc.htm

I don't know exactly how "clean" the Russian elections were but the 2004 US Presidential election was definitely an out-and-out sham.

Hopefully some of the points raised in this article should get the reader thinking about the US as a "National Security State" -- in which powerful overlapping interests, such as the CIA, Pentagon, and large corporations manipulate, and often brazenly undermine, the democratic process in order to serve American "strategic" interests.

For Christmas, Your Government Will Tell You When It's Legal to Kill You. Just Kidding: It's Classified

44. On October 7, 2011, Mr. Savage submitted a FOIA request [to] DOJ OLC seeking a copy of "all Office of Legal Counsel memorandums analyzing the circumstances under which it would be lawful for United States armed forces or intelligence community assets to target for killing a United States citizen who is deemed to be a terrorist."

45. By letter dated October 27, 2011, [DOJ] denied Mr. Savage's request.

Summary:

• The government dropped a bomb on a U.S. citizen,
• who, though a total dick and probably a criminal, may have been engaged only in propaganda,
• which, though despicable, is generally protected by the First Amendment;
• it did so without a trial or even an indictment (that we know of),
• based at least in part on evidence it says it has but won't show anyone,
• and on a legal argument it has apparently made but won't show anyone,
• and the very existence of which it will not confirm or deny;
• although don't worry, because the C.I.A. would never kill an American without having somebody do a memo first;
• and this is the "most transparent administration ever";
• currently run by a Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Montanans Launch Recall of Senators Who Approved NDAA Military Detention. Merry Christmas, US Senate

Moving quickly on Christmas Day after the US Senate voted 86 - 14 to pass the National Defense Authorization Act of 2011 (NDAA) which allows for the indefinite military detention of American citizens without charge or trial, Montanans have announced the launch of recall campaigns against Senators Max Baucus and Jonathan Tester, who voted for the bill.

Montana is one of nine states with provisions that say that the right of recall extends to recalling members of its federal congressional delegation, pursuant to Montana Code 2-16-603, on the grounds of physical or mental lack of fitness, incompetence, violation of oath of office, official misconduct, or conviction of certain felony offenses.

The Truth About the US Troop Withdrawl from Iraq.



According to barackobama.com, the end to the Iraq war is 'a promise kept'. It's true that the troops are withdrawing on President Obama's watch. But let's not forget who initiated the withdrawal. (Hint: It's not us.)

Iraq’s prime minister said Saturday that U.S. troops are leaving Iraq after nearly nine years of war because Baghdad rejected American demands that any U.S. military forces to stay would have to be shielded from prosecution or lawsuits.

The comments by Nouri al-Maliki, a Shiite, made clear that it was Iraq who refused to let the U.S. military remain under the Americans’ terms.

http://www.brasschecktv.com/videos/the-iraq-war/why-wont-the-government-tell-us-the-truth-about-iraq.html

Make sure to check out the video rant at the top.

Please note, the war in Iraq was initiated to fulfill a neocon agenda that intended to weaken the entire Middle East region.

The WMD claims and Saddam's links to Al Qaeda were deliberate lies designed to garner public support for an invasion.

After Demanding Patriot Missiles as Protection from Iran, Israel Sells Secret US Technology to China

These units, the most advanced Patriot system had only been supplied to nation, Israel. The 69 Patiot ICBM interceptors are believed to be a highly secret consignment demanded by Israel as protection from any retaliatory strike by Iran were war to break out in the region, Instead of deploying them, the missiles were apparently sold to China labeled as “fireworks” accoring to Interior Minister Paivi Rasanen.

Though the missiles themselves were worth only $4 billion, the technology transfer itself would be worth over $125 billion, and represent a signficant loss of defense capability for the United States. Sources termed it, “An absolute disaster, even if they only received the radar systems alone, much less the missiles. That this would go unreported though the story was broken in Europe 48 hours ago is astounding. Nobody in Washington has this although even the BBC report contains more than enough information to bring Washington to a halt.

Meanwhile finance firms, corporations, and different governments have also turned to plans that aim at preparing them for harsh times.

Regulators have asked banks in the US and UK to provide updates on readiness levels in case of a possible euro collapse.

Some corporate firms have also started transferring their cash on a daily basis out of European countries, including debt-ridden Greece instead of once every two weeks.

Only 1 of 9 regions has a positive decadal trend for the Annual mean temperature, the Northeast.

This data is from USHCN2, from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). Note that I have not adjusted it or even self plotted it in any way. The output graphs and trend numbers are from NCDC’s publicly available “Climate At A Glance” database interface, and these can be fully replicated by anyone easily simply by going here and choosing “regions”:

Nuke Expert/MD: Japan Gov’t Was Lying Through its Teeth about Fukushima… and Probably Still is

@ “We still don’t know exactly what radiation doses people were exposed to (in the immediate aftermath of the disaster)”
“Or what ongoing doses people are being exposed to”

@“Most of the information we’re getting at this point is a series of contradictory statements”
“Gov’t assures the people that everything’s okay”

@ “Private citizens doing their own radiation monitoring come up with higher readings than the government says they should be finding”
Japanese gov’t is essentially contending that the higher dose is “not dangerous”

@ “However, since the accident, it’s become clear the Japanese government was lying through its teeth, doing everything it possible [sic] could to minimize public concern, even when that meant denying the public information needed to make informed decisions, and probably still is”

@ “It’s now clear they knew within a day or so there had been a meltdown at the plant, yet they didn’t disclose that for weeks, and only with great prodding from the outside”

@ “And at the same moment he was assuring people there was no public health disaster, the Prime Minister now concedes that he thought Tokyo would have to be evacuated but was doing nothing to bring that about”
http://enenews.com/nuke-expertmd-japan-govt-lying-teeth-about-fukushima

The Government has claimed that the plant is now in cold shutdown. Before this time it was discovered that the THREE reactor cores had melted through the containments such that their locations were unknown. Some experts are concerned that there could be another explosion, possibly a very large one, that could lead to the evacuation of Northern Japan. At present, with the current level of contamination, the evacuation of Northern Japan should be seriously considered.

EVERYTHING humanly possible must be done to stop the spread of radiological material out of Fukushima.

NY Times Projects Ron Paul As Clear Favorite To Win Iowa

A New York Times Iowa primary projection, using figures collated from all the latest poll results and surveys, shows that Ron Paul is the clear favorite to win the crucial first Republican primary set to take place in just 13 days time.
-----------------------------------------
The current figures show Ron Paul’s chance of winning the Iowa primary at 49 per cent, with Romney in second at 27 per cent and Gingrich in third at 15.5 per cent.

The numbers are collated from ten different polls that were conducted over the course of the last three weeks, including surveys undertaken by Rasmussen, PPP and InsiderAdvantage/Majority Opinion Research. The results underscore how Paul has surged into first position over the last ten days, having been placed third at the start of the month.

The two most recent polls in Iowa have both found that Ron Paul is the current frontrunner in the crucial first primary state.

The results of a Iowa State University poll released today reported Paul in the lead with 27.5 percent of 333 likely caucus-goers, with Gingrich in second at 25.3 percent and Romney in third with 17.5 percent.

A survey released Sunday night conducted by Public Policy Polling showed Ron Paul in first place ahead of Romney in second and Gingrich in third, whose campaign was described as “imploding”.

Over 462 Trillion Becquerels Fukushima Strontium in Pacific Ocean, Seafood Risk

After Japanese Prime Minister declared the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe under control Friday, Japan's The Asahi Shimbun newspaper released calculations Monday showing at least 462 trillion becquerels of radioactive strontium have leaked into the Pacific Ocean since Fukushima's No. 1 nuclear power plant catastrophe began, making it one of the world's most severe marine pollution cases in history. According to Greenpeace independent research, Government and retailors are not adequately protecting the public from dangerous radioactive contaminated Pacific seafood, still sold unlabeled in Japan and on the international market, including to the United States due to a secret pact between Secretary Clinton and the Japanese Prime Minister.
------------------------------------------
Reports previously stating that radioactivity in seafood is low are dangerously misleading according to Satoshi Katayama, a professor of marine resources ecology at Tohoku University.

Katayama explained, "Strontium easily accumulates in creatures, even if its concentration level is low."

Last month, Greenpeace's Japan Oceans Campaigner Wakao Hanaoka, took seafood samples from five supermarket chains - Aeon, Ito Yokado, Uny (Apita), Daiei and Seiyu - [DW1] as featured in the first round of research, taking 15 samples from each. Of the 75 samples, radioactive cesium 134 and 137 were detected in 27.

"There was no company whose products were not contaminated," Greenpeace reported.

http://www.examiner.com/human-rights-in-national/over-462-trillion-becquerels-fukushima-strontium-pacific-ocean-seafood-risk?CID=examiner_alerts_article

The effects of radiation poisoning are often subtle and slow moving. The apparent lack of Government concern has lulled people into thinking there is little danger. Nevertheless, in a few short years, and definitely within 5-10 years, we will be seeing mass illness and casualties from this disaster.

There is no escaping the consequences of the fallout - whether it is on the Japanese mainland, in the Pacific, the West Coast of the United States and other areas of the Northern Hemisphere.

Remember, it only takes tiny amounts of long lasting radioactive caesium or strontium to cause cancer. Fukushima has provided plenty of material to cut down large numbers of people. The reaction of the Russians to the Chernobyl meltdown should be a clue as to the dangers posed by the three reactors in Japan:





And make sure to watch part 4 since it highlights the huge danger of a meltdown and the resulting explosions/contamination. Keep this information in mind when evaluating the Fukushima disaster that, despite what the authorities say, is still ongoing:

Medical Journal Article: 14,000 U.S. Deaths Tied to Fukushima Reactor Disaster Fallout

An estimated 14,000 excess deaths in the United States are linked to the radioactive fallout from the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear reactors in Japan, according to a major new article in the December 2011 edition of the International Journal of Health Services. This is the first peer-reviewed study published in a medical journal documenting the health hazards of Fukushima.

Authors Joseph Mangano and Janette Sherman note that their estimate of 14,000 excess U.S. deaths in the 14 weeks after the Fukushima meltdowns is comparable to the 16,500 excess deaths in the 17 weeks after the Chernobyl meltdown in 1986. The rise in reported deaths after Fukushima was largest among U.S. infants under age one. The 2010-2011 increase for infant deaths in the spring was 1.8 percent, compared to a decrease of 8.37 percent in the preceding 14 weeks.

Fake Withdrawal? 'US Won't Leave Iraq Oil to Iran'

Despite the US's declared withdrawal of its military personnel and contractors out of Iraq, Washington has prepared to control the country's rich oil reserves in any case, shared Ranjit Singh Kalha, former India's ambassador to Iraq in the 1990s.



Quote: 'US Won't Leave Iraq Oil to Iran.' The US would bomb Iran first, possibly after an Israeli attack, a NATO bombing of Syria (Iran has a defence agreement with Syria), or after a false flag attack on US forces by the USA/Israel (pretending to be Iranian linked terrorist).

Aspartame IS Poison

Even Fox News can report fairly on the effects of Aspartame on the human body. It's time to wake up people. These are not just conspiracy theories, care about your own health at least.



Environmental contamination is a real danger to the people. Subtle effects on individuals are hard to detect but that does not mean nothing is happening.

If you can, don't drink or eat stuff with this Aspartame in it. There have been no proper studies to show that it is safe, only animal tests that have shown it was harmful. See here for more info.
________________________________
Also: here is a tip against disinformation material concerning Aspartame for you. I have not done extensive research but I smell a rat here:
http://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/news/20070911/expert-panel-aspartame-sweetener-safe

Backstory: In 2007 there was an extensive review of Aspartame by an expert panel that deemed it safe. Many people will cite this as damning evidence against all the "fear mongering." However, the study, was sponsored by the Aspartame industry. Supporters of the study will tell you that it was unbiased because the panel was chosen by a third party, and not the chemical company itself. However, the link above indicates that this third party might not have been as neutral as claimed.

Moreover, it appears, from review of the study itself, that the expert panel members glossed over research that found problems with Aspartame.

Bail-out Bombshell: Fed "Emergency" Bank Rescue Totaled $29 Trillion Over Three Years

While the 99% suffered hardship, a new study shows that the Fed propped up buddies in the banking industry and a vast shadow banking system far beyond what anyone has guessed.
-----------------------------------------
Here’s the hurricane: In reality, no less than $29.616 trillion is the total emergency assistance provided by the Fed to foreign and domestic entities during the Global Financial Crisis. Let’s repeat that: $29 trillion. This astounding number is over twice U.S. gross domestic product, the nominal value of all goods and services produced for the year 2010.

http://www.alternet.org/economy/153462/bail-out_bombshell%3A_fed_%22emergency%22_bank_rescue_totaled_%2429_trillion_over_three_years/?page=entire

The author notes the problem with the shadow banking system that deals in trillions of dollars of off balance sheet derivatives. The trillions in bailouts, that could have settled ordinary real world debt, are covering losses in this highly leveraged, and completely unregulated, sector.

Congress Begins to Wake Up about Genetically Engineered Food

Rep. Dennis Kucinich has introduced two bills that would mandate labeling and provide stricter safety protections for GE products. HR 3553, the Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act, already has twelve co-sponsors (and bipartisan support). The bill requires labeling of all genetically engineered organisms—including fish, which is especially important since GM salmon approval seems imminent. For animals and animal products, the bill would also require disclosure if the animal has been fed GMO.

HR 3554, the Genetically Engineered Safety Act, has a number of excellent provisions. It:

Prohibits open-air cultivation of genetically engineered pharmaceutical and industrial crops, to prevent cross-pollination and contamination;

Prohibits the use of common human food or animal feed as the host plant for a genetically engineered pharmaceutical or industrial chemical; and

Establishes a tracking system to regulate the growing, handling, transportation, and disposal of GE pharmaceutical and industrial crops and their by-products

Highly Toxic Mercury Present in Processed Foods, Yet FDA Does Nothing

Why has the FDA ignored the fact that mercury, an element that is highly toxic in all forms, was found in a large number of brand-name processed foods?

Specifically, the mercury content was found to be contained in high-fructose corn syrup, which also reportedly contains genetically modified ingredients.

Instead of addressing this major public health concern, the FDA is focusing their time on crushing beneficial supplements through ridiculous NDI regulations that threaten the entire infrastructure of the nutraceuticals industry.

Researchers from two U.S. studies reported that about half of tested samples of high-fructose corn syrup contained mercury. Mercury was also found in nearly a third of 55 popular brand-name food and beverage products which listed high-fructose corn syrup as the first-or-second-highest labeled ingredient

Putin Lashes Out At McCain Over Libya-Russia Parallel

Vladimir Putin has lashed out at John McCain over his threats that the PM may face same fate as the late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. The Russian premier speculated that the US senator has been traumatized by his POW experience.

Putin presented his version of how Gaddafi was killed, and it allocates a dubious place for NATO in the scenario.

“All the world saw him being killed, all bloodied. Is that democracy? And who did it? Drones, including American ones, delivered a strike on his motorcade. Then commandos, who were not supposed to be there, brought in so-called opposition and militants. And killed him without trial,” Putin explained.
http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=28221

The problem for nations like Russia and China is while they are playing the diplomatic game -- with their intelligence agencies sitting on analysis of the 911 false flag, the rigged US elections, extortion and murder in Washington politics -- the US is actively looking to undermine them.

The problem with such intelligence secrets is that the US also has a fair degree of dirt on the Russians (I would guess) such that it discourages open discussion.

Perhaps the Russians should weigh up the pros and cons of playing this game in its current state.

Nuclear Controversies [Chernobyl Radiation Cover-Up]

In June 2001 in Kiev, the nuclear based experts of the IAEA and WHO maintain that the catastrophe of Tchernobyl made only 31 died “approximately”…



A great documentary on the disgraceful cover-up of the Chernobyl disaster and its long lasting impact. Highly recommended for its information content, as opposed to the production standards of the film.

The documentary highlights the fact that, over the long term, even very low doses of radiation have a disastrous, and often fatal, impact when ingested. This is especially true of children with their lower body weight and developing systems.

US Special Forces Mass On Syrian Border

Following similar reports by former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds, Israeli intelligence sources confirm that US Special Forces are massing in Jordan on the Syrian border having been transferred from Iraq.

On Sunday Edmonds reported that hundreds of foreign troops were witnessed near the Jordanian border village of Al-Mafraq, having moved back and forth between King Hussein Air Base of al-Mafraq and villages adjacent to the Syrian border.

After interviewing an employee in the London-based office of Royal Jordanian Airlines, Nizar Nayouf also reported that, “At least one US aircraft carrying military personnel landed in the Prince Hassan Air base located about 100 km to the east of the city of Al-Mafraq.”

According to Edmonds, the mainstream media has been eager to keep the movement of the troops under wraps, with one journalist from a major publication being told by his editor that there would be no coverage of the story.

NATO powers are preparing a new “humanitarian intervention” on the back of disputed reports that the Assad regime has killed 5,000 pro-democracy demonstrators.

Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) today announced commonsense legislation that would prohibit open-air cultivation of Genetically Engineered (GE) pharmaceutical and industrial crops, preventing biological contamination of our food supply. The bill would also establish a tracking system to regulate and ensure the safety of GE pharmaceutical and industrial crops.

“We must take steps to prevent genetically engineered organisms from being grown in a way that could do irreversible damage to our food supply. Under pressure from profit-minded industry, we have already allowed the spread of genetically modified crops into our agriculture at great cost to our economy and with unknown effects on our bodies,” said Kucinich.

"Proof" Obama Will Sign NDAA 1031 Citizen Imprisonment Law in a Few Days

As soon as December 13, the President will sign NDAA Section 1031 into law, permitting citizen imprisonment without evidence or trial. The bill that passed Congress absolutely DOES NOT exempt citizens. The text of Section 1031 reads, "A covered person under this section" includes "any person who has committed a belligerent act". We only have to be ACCUSED, because we don't get a trial.

- Confusingly, Obama threatened a veto for 1032, but NOT 1031. 1032 is UNRELATED to imprisoning citizens without a trial. He has never suggested using a veto to stop Section 1031 citizen imprisonment -- in fact, it was requested by the Obama administration. Watch the video for proof.




- The Feinstein Amendment 1031(e) is dangerously misleading. Don't be fooled: In the text of 1031(e), "Nothing in this section shall be construed...", the only word that matters is "construed" because the Supreme Court are the only ones with the power to construe the law. The Feinstein Amendment 1031(e) permits citizens to be imprisoned without evidence or a trial forever, if the Supreme Court does not EXPLICITLY repeal 1031.

- Any time you hear the words, "requirement for military custody" this refers to 1032 NOT 1031. We MUST not confuse these two sections. In its statements, the Obama administration has actually contributed to the confusion about 1032's "requirement for military custody", which is COMPLETEY UNRELATED to Section 1031 citizen imprisonment without trial. These tricky, misleading words appear even in major news stories. Don't fall for it!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=PLiKvSz_wX8

The VETO statements by Obama may be a deception such that he will allow Section 1031 to pass.

However, the Obama Administration may have asked that the language of Section 1031 to be changed so that he can VETO the Bill and make himself look good before the 2012 election. We'll know soon enough what is really going on.

In the meantime write to the White House and let them know that you know what is at stake here.

Kaltofen Report On Hot Fukushima Particles In The Air

A professional video of Marco Kaltofen's presentation to the American Public Health Association was recently made available to Fairewinds. Kaltofen states that hot particles are contaminating portions of northern Japan. He also states that auto air filters from Fukushima, that he tested in his Massachusetts laboratory, are so radioactive that they have to be disposed of in a buried radioactive waste disposal site in the US. Additionally, he expresses concerns for the mechanics who work on cars in Fukushima Prefecture.

New Video of Scientist Kaltofen Presenting to American Public Health Association from Fairewinds Associates on Vimeo.

Kaltofen deals with the migration of hot particles and debunks the idea that (ingested) low levels of radiation is harmless and equivalent to the radiation exposure from eating potassium in bananas or from cosmic rays whilst taking high altitude commercial flights.

Poland Joins Ranks of Grassroots Anti-Monsanto Activism

The anti-GMO, anti-Monsanto movement has been making major waves in recent months.

The inexorable growth of this revolution was recently highlighted by the popularity of Anthony Gucciardi's article detailing actions taken by Hungary to destroy 1000 acres of maize and issue a 10-year ban on GM foods. That article has gone mega-viral with over 95,000 shares, and is one of the best indications to date that we the people can take on even the largest corporations if we just take action and make our voices heard.

Monsanto is indeed the worst company of 2011, and people the world over are joining the opposition. Poland is contributing to the coordinated effort against GMO to protect their health freedom and preserve their local farming economy. "The Festival of Nature and Culture" begins today and runs through December 11th as a celebration of Poland's effort to stop GMO and save traditional seeds. It is another angle on generating support for a Poland-wide demand to kill off continued government attempts to sneak through an Act that would permit GM seeds to be commercially grown there.

Alex Jones: Government Activating FEMA Camps Across U.S.



Infowars.com has received a document originating from Halliburton subsidiary KBR that provides details on a push to outfit FEMA and U.S. Army camps around the United States. Entitled "Project Overview and Anticipated Project Requirements," the document describes services KBR is looking to farm out to subcontractors. The document was passed on to us by a state government employee who wishes to remain anonymous for obvious reasons.

Services up for bid include catering, temporary fencing and barricades, laundry and medical services, power generation, refuse collection, and other services required for temporary "emergency environment" camps located in five regions of the United States.

Institute of Medicine Safety Report Confirms [some] Vaccine Dangers

The statement by the IOM that a "relationship between certain vaccines and adverse health complications does exist" is monumental since it is coming from a mainstream medical organization (though it does not truly highlight all of the dangers involved with vaccinations). Gardasil, a popular vaccine developed by Merck, has been linked to over 49 deaths and countless hospitalizations. Adding fuel to the fire, California legislatures passed a bill that would make the vaccine mandatory to young California residents of both genders. It later came out that key legislatures who were instrumental in passing the bill were receiving financial incentives from Merck, who will receive millions if the law is approved
--------------------------------------------
Still, despite the warnings of the IOM and the death link, we are told by medical 'experts' to make sure that we are vaccinated with all of the 'recommended' vaccines. This includes the seasonal flu shot, which is now combined with the H1N1 vaccine. This is the same vaccine that has been linked to killer nerve disease, narcolepsy, and even death. What is even more ridiculous is that the H1N1 vaccine, loaded with side effects, was created to treat a disease that turned out to be less deadly than the seasonal flu.

Nuclear Experts Reject IAEA Iran Report

Robert Kelley, former IAEA director and nuclear engineer, says he was “quite surprised” by the lack of new information in the report, further stressing that the report is “highly misleading.”

Kelley says the IAEA report draws its material from a single source, a laptop computer. The laptop, he says, was allegedly supplied to the IAEA by a Western intelligence agency, “whose provenance could not be established.”

Tehran has rejected the report as "unbalanced, unprofessional and prepared with political motivation and under political pressure by mostly the United States.”

“There is nothing (in the IAEA report) that indicates that Iran is really building a bomb,” says Greg Thielmann, former State Department and Senate Intelligence Committee analyst.

“Those who want to drum up support for a bombing attack on Iran sort of aggressively misrepresented the report,” Thielmann adds.

On Saturday, Russian Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin said the IAEA report bore greater resemblance to a “PR exercise than a serious nuclear effort.”

Food Stamp Fraud Targeted, but Not Bank Fraud

Going after criminal cases targeting fraud has come down to what’s easier to prosecute for the Obama administration.

While Americans of all stripes have clamored for justice in the wake of the financial crisis, the U.S. Department of Justice has chosen to not pursue jail time for banking executives whose decisions wreaked havoc on the financial industry and the economy. The reason: Building cases against bankers is just too hard to do and carries too much risk of failure in the courtroom.

Instead, the Justice Department has allowed the Securities and Exchange Commission to pursue civil cases directed at banks that can yield large financial penalties, but no criminal prosecutions.

Russia Bashing

After a decade in power, it’s common for incumbent parties to lose strength. Nonetheless, despite likely coalition agreements on some issues, United Russia remains dominant. Moreover, Putin’s heavily favored to win in 2012.

With near final Duma votes counted, results were:

■ United Russia – 49.67%

■ the Communist Party – 19.15%

■ Just Russia – 13.16%

■ the Liberal Democratic Party – 11.67%

■ Yabloko – 3.21%, and

■ two small parties getting under 1% each.

Under Russian electoral laws, Duma seats are proportionally distributed to parties getting at least 7% of the vote.

Because several didn’t qualify, United Russia maintains a ruling majority. Nonetheless, President Medvedev expressed willingness to have coalition partners, saying:

“We will have to take into account the more complex configuration of the Duma and for some issues we will have to join coalition bloc agreements.”
-----------------------------------------------
On December 5, Russia Today (RT.com) reported that on election day, a Russian Internet site claimed an alleged United Russia scheme “to conduct an illegal throw-in of ballots at one of the polling stations in Moscow.”

It said “some obscure political specialists had gathered a group of about 40 people, described as ‘drunks and low-lifes,’ and handed them special secret pockets and packs of filled ballots, marked United Russia.”

In fact, three of the 40 were undercover reporters. When the alleged group arrived, they claimed fraud. Other reports about throw-in ballots also surfaced. A top Central Election Commission (CEC) official admitted some violations occurred.

CEC’s Leonid Ivlev mentioned “invisible ink, illegal propaganda, and the so-called ‘merry-go-round’ false voting” by specially prepared people.

However, the invisible ink scheme was uncovered and stopped. “Merry-go-round” fraud was grossly exaggerated. Minor violations only occurred. They’re common everywhere in contrast to major US electoral fraud.

Notably in 2000 and 2004, Democrats Gore and Kerry won popular and electoral college victories, but George Bush became president for eight years illegitimately

Woolly Mammoth to be Brought Back to Life From Cloned Bone Marrow 'within five years'

Teams from Russia's Sakha Republic's mammoth museum and Japan's Kinki University will launch fully-fledged joint research next year aiming to recreate the giant mammal, Japan's Kyodo News reported from Yakutsk, Russia.

By replacing the nuclei of egg cells from an elephant with those taken from the mammoth's marrow cells, embryos with mammoth DNA can be produced, Kyodo said, citing the researchers.

Over 46 Million Americans On Foodstamps For The First Time Ever

While the capital markets may be cheering that in the past month 120,000 people supposedly found jobs, even if these were largely temporary or part-time just in time for the year end shopping sprees, we wonder how they will react when learning that according to the latest update from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), some 423,000 Americans found their way to minimum way subsistence, courtesy of Food Stamp handouts from Uncle Sam. Since the start of the Second Great Depression, food stamp participation has increased by 18.7 million, and is now at an all time higher 46.3 million.

Found: Planet that's Just Like Earth

The research, published in a paper published in the Astrophysical Journal, suggests that the planet could contain liquid water on its surface, meaning it tops the league of planets and moons rated as being most like Earth, they said.

"Our findings offer a very compelling case for a potentially habitable planet said Vogt," said lead researcher Steven Vogt, a professor of astronomy and astrophysics at the University of California.

"The fact that we were able to detect this planet so quickly and so nearby tells us that planets like this must be really common," Vogt said. The new findings are based on 11 years of observations of the nearby red dwarf star Gliese 581. The team reported the discovery of two new planets around Gliese 581
.
http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2011-11-28/science/30449596_1_new-planets-rocky-planet-earth-and-orbits

The Gliese star system is only 20 light years from earth. We need to examine every system close to our Sun to determine how many other planets are in the habitable zones.

In the last decade it has become obvious that planets are very common whereas it was previously thought they were uncommon. This VASTLY increases the likelihood of life existing elsewhere in the known universe. Consequently this also increases the probability that intelligent life exists in the Milky Way according to the Drake equation.

These recent discoveries add to the mountain of data we have from UFO reports indicating that some sightings could represent extra terrestial visitation.

The Skeptics on the issue of UFOs are absolutely wrong in their analysis of the data. Official studies into the sighting reports actually confirm that a significant percentage represent real and unique phenomena (ie UFOs). If you actually read the linchpin "UFO debunking" Condon Report you will find that the body of this scientific study is in direct contradiction to the report's negative concluding sections.

And note: It has been reported that the issue of UFOs is classified higher than the US Atomic program. Indeed, there is strong evidence to suggest that the US Air Force and other elements of the US National Security State (inc CIA) have been helping to hide and ridicule the idea of UFOs being real.

Please remember, we are dealing with a highly classified subject here. Some commentators have recently pointed to previously classified documents that show the CIA, during the cold war, planned to push the idea of a UFO menace as psyche warfare to keep the population living in fear - and that this was done whilst the authors acknowledged the fictitious nature of the phenomena. UFO reports, and belief in them, in this light, are seen as being fueled by intelligence agency propagandists.

However, this situation does not ipso facto debunk the sighting reports themselves and is likely to be an example of how the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing when it comes to highly classified projects. The cited psyche warfare document provides a great cover story and should have been encouraged by those inside the loop: "Oh, all that UFO stuff ? It was just something cooked up and/or encouraged by our propaganda people. Everyone knows that UFOs are a great modern myth and there is no hard evidence to suggest otherwise."

20 Examples of the Obama Administration Assault on Domestic Civil Liberties

The Obama administration has affirmed, continued and expanded almost all of the draconian domestic civil liberties intrusions pioneered under the Bush administration. Here are twenty examples of serious assaults on the domestic rights to freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of association, the right to privacy, the right to a fair trial, freedom of religion, and freedom of conscience that have occurred since the Obama administration has assumed power. Consider these and then decide if there is any fundamental difference between the Bush presidency and the Obama presidency in the area of domestic civil liberties.

Patriot Act

On May 27, 2011, President Obama, over widespread bipartisan objections, approved a Congressional four year extension of controversial parts of the Patriot Act that were set to expire. In March of 2010, Obama signed a similar extension of the Patriot Act for one year. These provisions allow the government, with permission from a special secret court, to seize records without the owner’s knowledge, conduct secret surveillance of suspicious people who have no known ties to terrorist groups and to obtain secret roving wiretaps on people.

Criminalization of Dissent and Militarization of the Police

Anyone who has gone to a peace or justice protest in recent years has seen it – local police have been turned into SWAT teams, and SWAT teams into heavily armored military. Officer Friendly or even Officer Unfriendly has given way to police uniformed like soldiers with SWAT shields, shin guards, heavy vests, military helmets, visors, and vastly increased firepower. Protest police sport ninja turtle-like outfits and are accompanied by helicopters, special tanks, and even sound blasting vehicles first used in Iraq. Wireless fingerprint scanners first used by troops in Iraq are now being utilized by local police departments to check motorists. Facial recognition software introduced in war zones is now being used in Arizona and other jurisdictions. Drones just like the ones used in Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan are being used along the Mexican and Canadian borders. These activities continue to expand under the Obama administration.

The Failure to Investigate 9/11 Has Bankrupted America

The police state started in 2001.

Specifically, on 9/11, Vice President Dick Cheney initiated Continuity of Government Plans that ended America’s constitutional form of government (at least for some undetermined period of time.)

On that same day, a national state of emergency was declared … and that state of emergency has continuously been in effect up to today.

It is beyond dispute that 9/11 was entirely foreseeable, but – due to the extreme negligence and incompetence or lack of caring of the Bush administration (remember, I’m not getting into any other theories in this post) it wasn’t stopped. Even the chair of the 9/11 Commission said that the attack was preventable.

If there had been a real 9/11 investigation, the Bush administration’s extreme negligence would have come to light. And Americans would have learned that terrorism can largely be prevented if the military and intelligence officers are simply allowed to do their job.

http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2011/12/the-failure-to-investigate-911-has-bankrupted-america.html

If the Law had been upheld in regard to investigating 911 then we should have seen more equitable outcomes in regard to dealing with Wall Street fraud - and a whole host of other crimes. The State has been hijacked by corporate/military fascists and much of the population, led by the mainstream media, has been brainwashed by their propaganda.

TYT: Military Could Detain Americans Indefinitely

A provision in the National Defense Authorization Act would allow the military to detain terrorism suspects, including American citizens, indefinitely with no real trial.



The new Defense Authorisation Bill is set to be VETOED by Obama? Let's hope he does. Regardless, we know Obama is a puppet for the establishment. Is this theatre for the masses ? If it fails I would say yes. If this passes, then you can view it as another symptom of a corrupt system.

Lies, Damned Lies, and (Unemployment) Statistics

Mainstream media and Wall Street are salivating over the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ latest job growth numbers, which suggest that unemployment is on its fastest decline since the recession began in 2008:

"MSNBC: Employment growth picked up speed in November; jobless rate fell to 8.6 percent
Employment growth picked up speed in November, pushing the nation’s unemployment rate down to 8.6 percent — its lowest level since March 2009.

Private employers added a net gain of 140,000 jobs in November, but governments shed 20,000 jobs, mostly at the local and state level. Governments at all levels have shed nearly a half-million jobs in the past year. The Labor Department revised up its job gains for September and October by 52,000 and 20,000, respectively."
--------------------------------------------
The Head Lies could have just as easily read “315,000 give up searching for jobs and officially leave the workforce,” but that doesn’t play into the narrative, and we need to maintain appearances. How else are we supposed to keep the Dow Jones cranking amid a collapsing global economy?

This is a warning to our readers that trusting the Bureau of Labor Statistics could be dangerous to your financial health and personal well being.

Here are six reasons why these numbers, although seemingly positive at first glance, don’t hold a lot of weight for the nation’s long-term out look.
