'US Should be Excluded from Talks Over Syria Just Like Iran'

An international conference of countries which have influence on events in Syria is scheduled for this Saturday in Geneva. It aims to try to find a solution to the crisis. Iran hasn't been invited, despite earlier statements from the UN's Syria envoy Kofi Annan that it should be part of the peace process. RT talks to Sara Marusek, researcher from Syracuse University in Beirut.

Keiser Report (E307): Zombie Bank Apocalypse

In this episode, Max Keiser and co-host, Stacy Herbert, demand the big banks prove they are not dead by removing the life support systems, especially cufflinky Jamie Dimon's Too-Big-To-Fail bank. In the second half of the show Max talks to Professor Steve Keen about the wages being negatively related to the level of interest rates and debt.

Excellent episode !

In the second half they talk about European debt. They propose bailing out the people and letting the banks fail and also touch on Soros' comments about having a proper European central bank.

Debunking the Debunkers - the Blog !

This brilliant site destroys the fake science and claims made by the 911 debunking fraternity. I highly recommend that everyone visit this blog in order to get some basic scientific principles set in mind. It is level-headed analysis at its best.

Also, their selection of links to other 911 truth webpages and resources is invaluable.

For activists wishing to present a deconstruction of the key debunker falsehoods, thereby strengthening the case against the official web of lies, I suggest drawing upon the information found at Debunking the Debunkers. Encourage others to learn the truth and fight in the information war.

With continuous and unrelenting actions we will inevitably expose the 911 FALSE FLAG attack for what it was. We can then bring about a measure of justice for all the victims of 911 and END the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Monsanto's Seedy Legacy

Agricultural giant Monsanto is best known for their production of pesticides and genetically modified foods, but they have a controversial history as a chemical company with a slew of toxic cover ups. In addition to their battle against small farmers, the newest buzz about the corporation is the speculation that their GM seeds are linked to the die off of bees.

WHATREALLYHAPPENED.COM - The Ultimate Online News Source

"The History the Government Doesn't want YOU to Know" is perhaps the greatest online news site explaining the history and politics behind current world events. If you want to know what's really going on visit

Those who are new to the alternative media will soon understand that the critical decisions made by our political leaders are not simply the result of left or right wing points of view. This left/right idea is a false paradigm in many instances.

We ARE living in a world sabotaged by corrupt corporate, military and intelligence interests. The premier news site exposes this corruption and educates the reader. It's a vital source of information for anyone concerned about what is happening out there.

Don't miss out on ESSENTIAL news analysis. Mike Rivero (an ex-NASA analyst), the guy in charge, is a wealth of information. Educate yourselves. Ditch the mainstream media lies and learn what is really going on !

Massive Cyber Attack in USA, Europe and Latin America Siphons $2.5 Billion From Banks

A report from cyber security firm McAfee indicates that a large scale, widespread attack is taking place on the financial system with some 60 banks affected so far. According to the report, a virus installed on banks' computers has allowed approximately $2.5 billion to be stolen from large corporate accounts. The theft is ongoing as international law enforcement agencies are working to identify the hackers.

Ron Paul ONE – Lawyers for Ron Paul

Attorney Richard Gilbert explains that American popular support for Presidential Candidate Ron Paul is so strong that it was impossible for Americans to tolerate blatant criminal acts that were being repeatedly committed to steal the election.

Ron Paul’s nomination is too important and his legacy so respected that millions of Americans are demanding Romney be disqualified for election fraud. A mountain of evidence has been amassed from Team Romney’s careless trek from state to state breaking multiple election laws as an organized crime syndicate.

While Team Romney keeps spinning news on his differences with President Obama his lawyers and the RNC are now stuck with the impossible task of refuting literally hundreds of Republican plaintiffs who have signed onto the lawsuit and corroborated it with a mountain of very solid graphic video evidence

Obama Administration Accused of Blocking UN Report on Congo Rebels to Protect Dictator Ally

A United Nations Group of Experts has uncovered information revealing Rwanda’s support for a Congolese rebel leader who is wanted internationally for using child soldiers. But the UN report, completed earlier this month, has not been released because of the section about the Rwandan involvement. U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice has been accused of applying pressure at the Security Council in order to protect the United States’ Rwandan ally, President Paul Kagame. Kagame was reelected president in 2010 with 93% of the vote.

At the center of the controversy is Bosco Ntaganda (aka “Terminator”), a former general fighting the Democratic Republic of Congo’s government. Wanted by the International Criminal Court since 2006 on charges of forcibly recruiting children as soldiers, Ntaganda and his forces have been aided by the Rwandan military, which has provided safe haven, as well military supplies, to the rebel army

Just a reminder to show that Obama's Administration is little different from any of the other recent US Administrations. Obama is just the public relations guy for the military industrial complex.

Turkish Jet Clearly Violated Syria's Sovereignty – Damascus

The downing of a Turkish plane by Syria was an act of self-defense against a violation of its sovereignty, the Syrian foreign ministry has said. Damascus insists it was within its right to open fire on unidentified aircraft violating its airspace.

Commenting on the claims that no warning has been given before the downing, Magdissi said the Syrian defense forces “have been taken by surprise to see such a plane.”

“Syria air defense taken by surprise by plane at 100m altitude, even if plane was Syrian we would have shot it down,” he said

A high speed unidentified aircraft, at low level, is usually seen as a threat by anti-aircraft defenses. It is somewhat understandable that the Turkish F-4 was shot down. Nevertheless, the Syrian crew on the ground could have showed more restraint since they are not actually in a hot war - apart from the conflict on the ground against the "rebels".

Europe Has 3 Days To Avoid A Fiasco That Could Turn Fatal

The basic idea is: A new "debt redemption fund" would be launched, which would have the ability to buy up sovereign debt funding itself via ECB backed Treasuries with the safest risk weighting. In exchange for countries being able to fund itself via that fund, they would have to agree to various structural reforms. Any failure to deliver on reforms would get a penalty, but not a fatal one. Eventually after all the reforms were made, a more complete fiscal union/Eurobonds scheme could be enacted.

The banker (sovereign) debts are massive and largley unrepayable. This scheme is a ploy to service the debt load over a longer time frame and kick the can down the road. Eventually these institutions will have to take a haircut and realise the losses: "You can ingnore reality but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality."

UPDATE: Architects and Engineers For 911 Truth- More than 1700* Building Experts say 911 was an Inside Job
More than ONE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED experts now say that the attacks on the World Trade Centre Towers (and Building 7) were an inside job.

The reason for such a position is clear: there is overwhelming forensic evidence that demonstrates explosives MUST have been used on the buildings.

The official lies about 911 cannot be allowed to stand. Exposing the truth is necessary to stop any further staged attacks that could be used as a pretext to clamp down on civil liberties or as a justification for new Wars versus countries such as Iran. We live in dangerous times and we need experts like these to help fight against the lies.

Go to the AE911truth website and sign their petition. Become a sustaining member and donate money to further their operations. Give 10 dollars a month or more if you can afford it. Don't let the criminals win.

Research: Gulf Shrimp Widely Contaminated With Carcinogens

Conservative estimates indicate that the 2010 BP oil disaster released over 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf, followed by at least 1.8 million gallons of dispersants.

While the use of dispersants helped mitigate the public relations disaster by preventing the persistent formation of surface oil, as well as keeping many beaches visibly untouched, they also drove the oil deeper into the water column (and food chain) rendering a 2-dimensional problem (surface oil) into a 3-dimensional one.

Additionally, research indicates that dispersants prevent the biodegradation of toxic oil components, as well as increasing dispersant absorption into fish from between 6 to 1100 fold higher levels.

Since the event, both the mainstream media and the government have acted as if the oil disappeared, and that no significant health risks remain for the millions still consuming contaminated seafood from the Gulf.*

Now, a new study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives has revealed that the 2010 BP Gulf oil disaster resulted in widespread contamination of Gulf Coast seafood with toxic components from crude oil.1

In fact, levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in shrimp were found to exceed the FDA’s established thresholds for allowable levels [levels of concern (LOCs)] for pregnant women in up to 53% of Gulf shrimp sampled

Mike Rivero: Baby Soaps and Shampoos Trigger Positive Marijuana Tests While NO Testing Done on IMMEDIATE Threats to Our Lives

Commonly used baby soaps and shampoos, including products from Johnson & Johnson, Aveeno and CVS, can trigger a positive result on newborns' marijuana screening tests, according to a recent study. A minute amount of the cleansing products in a urine sample — just 0.1 milliliters or less — was found to cause a positive result.

Researchers at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, began studying the issue after an unusually high number of newborns in their nursery began testing positive for marijuana exposure. Newborn screening for marijuana at hospitals, particularly among babies of women who are considered at high risk of drug use, is not uncommon: at U.N.C. Chapel Hill, 10% to 40% of newborns are tested.

The above part is the original article and Mike Rivero's comment follows:

Soooooooo ... we have radioactive seafood in the Pacific, but the US Government doesn't think we need to test for that, and we have oil and corexit contaminated seafood in the Gulf of Mexico, but the US Government doesn't think we need to test for that, and we have toxic byproducts in GMO crops, but the US Government doesn't think we need to test for that, and we have massive evidence of rampant election fraud, but the US Government doesn't think we need to test for that, and we have out-of-control financial swindles all across Wall Street, but the US Government doesn't think we need to test for that ... but by golly the US Government WILL test newborn babies to make sure they are not using the dreaded evil weed!!!!!!!!!

Fast and Furious Scandal- Holder's Executive Privilege Check Mate

For several months, Attorney General Eric Holder has stonewalled the Congressional Oversight Committee by withholding subpoenaed documents pertinent to the investigations of the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal and the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE Ageng Jaime Zapata. Now in a spectacular move right out of the Richard Nixon playbook, Eric Holder submitted a letter to Barack Obama requesting him to invoke executive privilege over these subpoenaed documents. Obama has honored that request.
According to Judge Napolitano, we may be on the precipice of a constitutional confrontation between the executive branch, the White House, and the Congress. Executive privilege is defined in the leading Supreme Court case, interestingly United States v. Nixon, that’s Richard Nixon, that’s the Watergate-era. Despite the efforts of the special prosecutor to subpoena tapes from President Nixon, this executive privilege was construed by the government as protecting conversation with the President himself. Even thought the high court agreed, they ruled against Nixon citing the public’s right to know.

“Now the letter that Eric Holder wrote to the President saying ‘please give me executive privilege’ does not say ‘because I discussed this with you Mr. President,’ but the implication is there,” continues Judge Napolitano. “ Executive privilege protects communications with the president; the human being of the president – not the people who work for him and the Justice Department.”

“Until now, everyone believed that the decisions regarding ‘Fast and Furious’ were confined to the Department of Justice. The White House decision to invoke executive privilege implies that White House officials were either involved in the ‘Fast and Furious’ operation or the cover-up that followed,” said Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) spokesman, Brendan Buck. “The Administration has always insisted that wasn’t the case. Were they lying, or are they now bending the law to hide the truth

President Obama: 9/11 Families Ask You to Watch “9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out”

Support the 9/11 families and others who are asking President Obama to review the evidence in the documentary, 9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out

• Who: President Barak Obama
• Sponsored by:
9/11 family members, Michele Little, Jane Pollicino, Bob McIlvaine, Josef Princiotta

In a new documentary, 43 high-rise architects, structural engineers, metallurgists, scientists, physicists, and explosives experts provide compelling proof of explosive controlled demolition in the destruction of three World Trade Center (WTC) skyscrapers on September 11, 2001.

Their examination of scientific evidence suggests that the collapse of the Twin Towers and WTC7 was not adequately explained by the 9/11 Commission, FEMA, and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) reports, all of which contain serious errors and omissions.

Why should this film matter to you, the reader, 11 years later? How will it help for President Obama to see this film?

9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out challenges the roots of the policies that gave rise to (1) the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which have already cost more than a million lives and $1.3 trillion and have substantially contributed to our financial crisis; and (2) legislation such as the Patriot Act and NDAA [National Defense Authorization Act], which has severely impacted our civil liberties

Hidden US-Israeli Military Agenda: "Break Syria into Pieces"

A timely article in the Jerusalem Post last month brings to the forefront the unspoken objective of US foreign policy, namely the breaking up of Syria as a sovereign nation state --along ethnic and religious lines-- into several separate and "independent" political entities. The article also confirms the role of Israel in the process of political destabilization of Syria. The JP article is titled: "Veteran Kurdish politician calls on Israel to support the break-up of Syria' (by Jonathan Spyer) (The Jerusalem Post (May 16, 2012)

The objective of the US sponsored armed insurgency is --with the help of Israel-- to "Break Syria into Pieces".

The "balkanisation of the Syrian Arab Republic" is to be carried out by fostering sectarian divisions, which will eventually lead to a "civil war" modelled on the former Yugoslavia. Last month, Syrian "opposition militants" were dispatched to Kosovo to organize training sessions using the "terrorist expertise" of the US sponsored Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) in fighting the Yugoslav armed forces.

Sherkoh Abbas, President of the US based Kurdistan National Assembly of Syria (KNA) has "called on Israel to support the break-up of Syria into a series of federal structures based on the country’s various ethnicities." (Ibid)

One possible "break-up scenario" pertaining to Syria, which constitutes a secular multi-ethnic society, would be the formation of separate and "independent" Sunni, Alawite-Shiite, Kurdish and Druze states: “We need to break Syria into pieces,” Abbas said. (Quoted in JP, op. cit., emphasis added).

"The Syrian Kurdish dissident argued that a federal Syria, separated into four or five regions on an ethnic basis, would also serve as a natural “buffer” for Israel against both Sunni and Shi’ite Islamist forces." (Ibid.).

Ironically, while Islamist forces are said to constitute the main threat to the Jewish State, Tel Aviv is providing covert support to the Islamist Free Syrian Army (FSA).

Hey, did the US just make a deal with Russia to stay out of this conflict ? See below:

Why the Senate Won’t Touch Jamie Dimon: JPM Derivatives Prop Up U.S. Debt

The groveling of the Senators was so obvious that Jon Stewart did a spoof news clip on it, featured in a Huffington Post piece titled “Jon Stewart Blasts Senate’s Coddling Of JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon,” and Matt Taibbi wrote an op-ed called “Senators Grovel, Embarrass Themselves at Dimon Hearing.” He said the whole thing was painful to watch.

“What is going on with this panel of senators?” asked Stewart. “They’re sucking up to Jamie Dimon like they’re on JPMorgan’s payroll.” The explanation in a news clip that followed was that JPMorgan Chase is the biggest campaign donor to many of the members of the Banking Committee.

That is one obvious answer, but financial analysts Jim Willie and Rob Kirby think it may be something far larger, deeper, and more ominous. They contend that the $3 billion-plus losses in London hedging transactions that were the subject of the hearing can be traced, not to European sovereign debt (as alleged), but to the record-low interest rates maintained on U.S. government bonds.

The national debt is growing at $1.5 trillion per year. Ultra-low interest rates MUST be maintained to prevent the debt from overwhelming the government budget. Near-zero rates also need to be maintained because even a moderate rise would cause multi-trillion dollar derivative losses for the banks, and would remove the banks’ chief income stream, the arbitrage afforded by borrowing at 0% and investing at higher rates.

The low rates are maintained by interest rate swaps, called by Willie a “derivative tool which controls the bond market in a devious artificial manner.” How they control it is complicated, and is explored in detail in the Willie piece here and Kirby piece here.

Kirby contends that the only organization large enough to act as counterparty to some of these trades is the U.S. Treasury itself. He suspects the Treasury’s Exchange Stabilization Fund, a covert entity without oversight and accountable to no one. Kirby also notes that if publicly-traded companies (including JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley) are deemed to be integral to U.S. national security (meaning protecting the integrity of the dollar), they can legally be excused from reporting their true financial condition. They are allowed to keep two sets of books.

Interest rate swaps are now over 80 percent of the massive derivatives market, and JPMorgan holds about $57.5 trillion of them. Without the protective JPMorgan swaps, interest rates on U.S. debt could follow those of Greece and climb to 30%. CEO Dimon could, then, indeed be “the guy in charge”: he could be controlling the lever propping up the whole U.S. financial system

This is an excellent explanation for what was likely going on in the hearing. Also the article, by Ellen Brown, goes on to mention criminal activity associated with Dimon:
So should Dimon be regarded as a national hero? Not if past conduct is any gauge. Besides the recent $3 billion in JPMorgan losses, which look more like illegal speculation than legal hedging, there is JPM’s use of its conflicting positions as clearing house and creditor of MF Global to siphon off funds that should have gone into customer accounts, and its responsibility in dooming Lehman Brothers by withholding $7 billion in cash and collateral. There is also the fact that Dimon sat on the board of the New York Federal Reserve when it lent $55 billion to JPMorgan in 2008 to buy Bear Stearns for pennies on the dollar. Dimon then owned nearly three million shares of JPM stock and options, in clear violation of 18 U.S.C. Section 208, which makes that sort of conflict of interest a felony.

And this:
Olagues has evidence of systematic computer-generated selling of JPMorgan stock immediately prior to and on the dates of the granted equity compensation. Collusion to manipulate the stock to accommodate the grant of options is called “spring-loading” and is a violation of SEC Rule 10 b-5 and tax laws, with criminal and civil penalties.

The Secret of Oz - Winner, Best Docu of 2010 v.1.09.11

The debt money system explained. It also provides an argument for a viable money system not based upon Gold. Money according to the doco is a tool, and its value is controlled through its use or misuse, not its inherent value. Wood "notes" were used in the UK at certain stages and it worked.

Although I think that some of the historical narrative may be questionable, this documentary is worth checking out because of the notion of government issued money, rather than bank issued debt based money. The success of managing economic activity and entrepreneurship relies on issuing just enough money to get the job done and not excessive amounts that can cause bubbles.

RECAP: 911 Truth - What Does a Building "Engulfed" in Fire Look Like?

Now, which one looks more like WTC7 on 9/11?

Related Info: Jim Corr Omits Info about Roaring Fires in WTC 7

Remember: The official story for the collapse of WTC7 is that it came down due to fires. However, all the evidence indicates that this HAD to be a controlled demolition. The evidence that fires could have brought down WTC7 is weak to non-existent. And recall that the official NIST report contains proven falsehoods (lies) in order to push their unbelievable narrative.

Banks & People's Deposits - On the Edge with Max Keiser

In this edition of the show Max interviews Nomi Prins from It is the size of a bank holding company's deposits that dictates the extent of the risk it takes, risk 'models' not withstanding: the more deposits, the more risk, the more potential loss. And the more access to other people's money, the greater the gambling incentive. The largest banks hold deposits (people's deposits) hostage in the global game of financial warfare. Related access to capital and bailouts are enabling weaponry in the fight for worldwide institutional supremacy.

A really excellent interview that explains what is going on in the financial markets and history lesson.

US Attempting to Trigger Full Proxy War in Syria

Over the last week, the US has been outright caught lying – admittedly by Pentagon officials, regarding Russian gunships being shipped to Syria. In New York Times’ “Copters in Syria May Not Be New, U.S. Officials Say,” a senior defense department official admitted when US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made her fraudulent claim regarding Russian weapon shipments, she “put a little spin on it to put the Russians in a difficult position.”

The New York Times continued by stating, “Mrs. Clinton’s claim about the helicopters, administration officials said, is part of a calculated effort to raise the pressure on Russia to abandon President Bashar al-Assad, its main ally in the Middle East,” indicative of the campaign of propaganda and lies orchestrated by the US State Department, the British Foreign Office, and Western and Gulf State news outlets around the world to demonize both the Syrian government and its extensive allies around the world, contrary to the facts on the ground.

Also adding to the torrent of propaganda was Human Rights Watch (HRW) and US State Department-run Amnesty International, both of which are funded by convicted criminal, Wall Street speculator George Soros, which attempted to level charges of “abuses” by Syrian forces, as always based solely on the “witness accounts” of admitted members of the opposition. The United Nations as well attempted to frame Syrian forces for using “children” as human shields. Despite having 300 monitors on the ground in Syria, again, the report was compiled solely using opposition “witness accounts,” reminiscent of a late 2011 UN human rights report also compiled from opposition hearsay, in Geneva – not even Syria – and compiled by Karen Koning AbuZayd.

AbuZayd is concurrently a member of the Washington D.C. based Middle East Policy Council, along side current and former associates of Exxon, the US military, the CIA, the Saudi Binladin Group, the US-Qatari Business Council and both former and current members of the US government – illustrating an immense conflict of interests and devaluing the UN’s credibility to unprecedented lows.

However, as evidence continues to point the finger at opposition sectarian extremists for the massacre at Houla, Syria, and at NATO-armed foreign fighters filtering into Syria to repeat atrocities now fully documented in Libya, organizations like Amnesty, HRW, and even the UN itself are increasingly losing credibility to convince all but the weakest of minds.

Despite this, the West continues to seek ways of arming sectarian extremists operating in Syria under the banner of the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA), with the Washington Post confirming in their article, “Syrian rebels get influx of arms with gulf neighbors’ money, U.S. coordination,” that weapons, cash, and logistical support is indeed being provided to terrorist forces in Syria by the United States, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and other Gulf States even as the West berated the Syrian government for “violating” the terms of a ceasefire allegedly being brokered by Kofi Annan. The West is doing in reality what they admittedly are lying about Russia doing for the sake of “raising pressure,” with Russia in turn leveling much more credible accusations against the US for arming sectarian extremists in Syria.

The Western press is now intent on portraying the violence in Syria as a “civil war,” despite the fact that the vast majority of weapons, cash, and fighters constituting the “Syrian opposition” are actually foreign

Iceland proves that bailing out the Middle Class Works Better than Bailing out Banks

Cenk explains why Iceland is a perfect example for how bailing out citizens instead of banks can help an economy recover. Between 2001 and 2010, the median net worth in the United States dropped 20 percent. Meanwhile, Iceland invested in their middle class, provided debt relief for 25 percent of its citizens, and now the economy is on the rebound. “We were told here in the United States, both by Republicans and Tim Geithner, ‘That can’t work; it’ll destroy our economy,” Cenk says, but Iceland disproves that by now doing better than the U.S. and the Eurozone.

China Is Secondary Target of Sanctions on Iran

The Obama administration has agreed to let numerous countries be exempt from penalties under a harsh new set of economic sanctions on Iran’s oil sector, but has refused to grant China – a major importer of Iranian oil – such exemptions.

The new round of sanctions are scheduled for June 28 and the U.S. has given waivers to India, South Korea, Turkey, and four other countries. They can now continue to do business with Iranian oil, so long as they voluntarily reduce their imports by significant margins.

China buys as much as a fifth of Iran’s crude exports and remains the one major trading partner who will still face international penalties for continuing to import Iranian oil.

The Obama administration has been ramping up the pressure on China with an increasingly antagonistic foreign policy. The so-called ‘Asia pivot’ is an aggressive policy that involves surging American military presence throughout the region – in the Philippines, Japan, Australia, Guam, South Korea, Singapore, etc. – in an unprovoked scheme to contain rising Chinese economic and military influence

After the end of the Cold War many military strategists in the US favoured the idea of maintaining the USA as the unrivaled world superpower. It is likely that US strategic thinkers want two things out of this situation- worsening relations with China, so that a new Cold War (arms race) can be created and the curtailing of China's influence in the world in general - in places such as Africa and other parts of Asia.

Note that a Cold War conflict with China may encourage business investment and western manufacturing to shift out of that country and back to the US or other places. However, whether the rest of the world (BRICS) go along with such policies is another thing.

Planets Can Form Around Different Types of Stars

It had previously been thought that planets were more likely to form around a star if the star had a high content of heavier elements. But new research from the University of Copenhagen, among others, shows that small planets can form around very different types of stars – also stars that are relatively poor in heavy elements. This significantly increases the likelihood that Earth-like planets are widespread in the universe. The results have been published in the prestigious scientific journal, Nature.
The conclusion, says Lars A. Buchhave, is that these observations mean that Earth-like planets could be widespread throughout our galaxy, as they have no special requirements for an elevated content of heavy elements in stars in order to be formed. This conclusion resonates well with the picture that is emerging of the distribution of small planets in our galaxy, namely that it seems more the rule than the exception that a star has small planets orbiting them.

Because small Earth-like planets are not dependent upon a high content of heavy elements in their host star, they could be both widespread and could have been formed earlier in our galaxy

Discoveries such as this increase the likelihood of life existing elsewhere in the Universe if you accept the thinking behind the Drake Equation.

Regime Change in Syria: Geopolitical Analysis of the Situation

The new Syrian opposition leader has urged mass defections from the regime and promised support for the rebels. This, as U.S. senator John McCain has said that anti-Assad fighters are directly supplied with weapons from Arab Gulf states and wants Washington to follow that lead. International relations professor Mark Almond, says the U.S. will remain true to its idea of regime change.

This interview helps explain what may be going on in Syria at present - that there has been a lot of foreign intervention in support of the more radical elements within the country.

The huge danger being faced at the moment is an Iraq-insurgency type outcome where many hundreds of thousands of people are killed and millions displaced.

No Justice - Supreme Court Rejects ALL Guantanamo Detainee Torture Suits

At the heart of the case against Padilla and all Guantanamo detainees is a single label issued by the U.S. government: enemy combatant. Even though the term was supposed to have been dropped in 2009, it is still acknowledged by the courts. With this single designation, the normal rules of international law and the guarantees afforded to U.S. citizens under the Constitution become null and void. The 4th Circuit specifically stated their conundrum, as the framework of enemy combatant status essentially circumvents the American legal system. In response, they passed the buck to Congress, which they stated had not defined any appropriate remedy in their responsibility for military conduct.

A legal black hole had been revealed, which ACLU lawyer for Jose Padilla, Ben Wizner, highlighted:
By dismissing this lawsuit, the appeals court handed the government a blank check to commit any abuse in the name of national security, even the brutal torture of a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil. This impunity is not only anathema to a democracy governed by laws, but contrary to history’s lesson that in times of fear our values are a strength, not a hindrance.

Padilla had been trying to sue Donald Rumsfeld, torture memo author John Yoo, as well as other officials that laid the foundation and/or gave the orders for his confinement and mistreatment. However, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals stepped up in early May of this year to reverse the ruling of a federal judge who concluded that Padilla could in fact file suit against John Yoo.

However, it is the latest ruling by the Supreme Court that seems to have put the final nail in the coffin for anyone attempting to obtain justice for improper treatment at the hands of the out-of-control warmongers and torturers who have infested Washington. The Supreme Court firmly rejected a cert petition to overturn the 4th Circuit's decision, as well as having rejected 7 other appeals made by Guantanamo detainees.

The highest levels of the American legal system have now decided to become subservient to whatever policy of detention the U.S. government can invent

Could Ron Paul have gotten 72% of the vote instead of 12%? Anne Beckett, election judge for Austin (Travis County), says it is so.

In fact, she did an entrance poll of Republican voters for their party preference and says that a minimum of 66% offered on their own that they came to vote for Ron Paul. As she polled them she wrote a line on her hand, then, counted the total voters. A minimum of 66% and as high as 72% of all the votes went for Paul, NOT Romney (she wishes to be conservative, but says that at the bare minimum 66%, not 12%, of the votes went to Paul).

Implosion of The Houla Massacre Story — Is Anyone Paying Attention?

A respected mainstream publication, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung(FAZ), has reported that the infamous Houla massacre in Syria, which the US and NATO hoped would be the casus belli for their planned invasion, was in fact carried out by rebel forces.

Highlighted in the National Review, of all places, the FAZ investigation was exhaustive and convincing.
NRO reports on the original FAZ story:

According to the article’s sources, the massacre occurred after rebel forces attacked three army-controlled roadblocks outside of Houla. The roadblocks had been set up to protect nearby Alawi majority villages from attacks by Sunni militias. The rebel attacks provoked a call for reinforcements by the besieged army units. Syrian army and rebel forces are reported to have engaged in battle for some 90 minutes, during which time “dozens of soldiers and rebels” were killed.

“According to eyewitness accounts,” the FAZ report continues,

“the massacre occurred during this time. Those killed were almost exclusively from families belonging to Houla’s Alawi and Shia minorities. Over 90% of Houla’s population are Sunnis. Several dozen members of a family were slaughtered, which had converted from Sunni to Shia Islam. Members of the Shomaliya, an Alawi family, were also killed, as was the family of a Sunni member of the Syrian parliament who is regarded as a collaborator. Immediately following the massacre, the perpetrators are supposed to have filmed their victims and then presented them as Sunni victims in videos posted on the internet

Is this report accurate? I would guess that it very well might be. The rebels have been caught pushing propaganda in other instances, they are heavily backed by the West, plus the corporate media, and the goal at present seems targeted toward overt foreign assistance (air strikes) against the Assad regime. The sources for this story (see link) seem credible.

Report: Obama Speeds Up Limited Air Strike, No-Fly Zones Preparations for Syria

US President Barack Obama has ordered the US Navy and Air Force to accelerate preparations for a limited air offensive against the Assad regime and the imposition of no-fly zones over Syria, debkafile reports. Their mission will be to knock out Assad’s central regime and military command centers so as to shake regime stability and restrict Syrian army and air force activity for subduing rebel action and wreaking violence on civilian populations.

debkafile’s sources disclose that the US President decided on this step after hearing Russian officials stating repeatedly that “Moscow would support the departure of President Bashar al-Assad if Syrians agreed to it.” This position was interpreted as opening up two paths of action

What we have in Syria is not a popular uprising like what we saw in Egypt. What we are getting is something more akin to what happened in Libya. The situation may even deteriorate to the conditions we saw in Iraq.

Although there are problems with the Assad regime, the alternative at the moment looks very bleak. To avoid more massacres and a civil war it is probably better to see Assad prevail until a time when peaceful elections can be held.

False Flag Alert: Syrian Rebels Aim to Use Chemical Weapons, Blame Damascus – Report

The armed Syrian opposition has got their hands on chemical weapons, which they acquired from Libya, a media report claims. They allegedly plan to use it against civilians and pin the atrocity on the Bashar al-Assad regime.

­The report by DamPress claims the opposition group in possession of the weapons is being trained in its use inside Turkey. No further detail on the alleged conspiracy is given.

The Libyan stockpile of chemical weapons was a matter of great concern during last year’s civil war in the country. There were fears that they may end up in the hands of the terrorists and used elsewhere in the world. However unlike Libya’s portable surface-to-air arsenal, no reports of the weapons going missing was made public.

Syria has a greater number of chemical weapons than Libya. Military experts say the agents in the Syrian stockpile are also more modern that what Gaddafi had produced for his military. Syria also didn’t join the Chemical Weapons Convention and is not obliged to declare what chemical weapons it possesses

With foreign money, fighters and equipment going to the Syrian "opposition" anything is possible.

Debunking War Games

The "War Games" page at states:
Many prominent 9/11 researchers claim that the US air defence system would have prevented the 9/11 attacks under normal circumstances, but were unable to do so because air traffic controllers, the FAA and NORAD were confused by "war games" that were running at the same time...

...There’s a distinct lack of evidence for any of these exercises adversely affecting the response to 9/11, or even to contradict the NORAD and 9/11 Commission view that they actually helped.

However, this past Tuesday published a press release entitled, "Expert Panel Reports False Accounts of US Political and Military Leaders on 9/11," which notes that:

The 20-member 9/11 Consensus Panel analyzed evidence from press reports, FOIA requests, and archived 9/11 Commission file documents to produce eight new studies, released today.

The international Panel also discovered that four massive aerial practice exercises traditionally held in October were in full operation on 9/11. The largest, Global Guardian, held annually by NORAD and the US Strategic and Space Commands, had originally been scheduled for October 22-31 but was moved, along with Vigilant Guardian, to early September.

Although senior officials claimed no one could have predicted using hijacked planes as weapons, the military had been practicing similar exercises on 9/11 itself -- and for years before it.

The Panel, discovering widespread reports of confusion and delays in the defense response, looked into who was overseeing the air defenses after the second Tower was hit at 9:03 AM.

Going to the report itself, we learn that, "Although the 9/11 Commission mentioned only one military exercise – Vigilant Guardian – that was scheduled for 9/11, evidence shows that at least 12 exercises had been scheduled for that day."

9/11 researcher Dr. Webster Tarpley puts the number of exercises taking place on 9/11 at 22.

(Note: I strongly disagree with many of Tarpley's conclusions about 9/11 and his unfounded allegations against several other 9/11 researchers.)

The first bio listed on the 9/11 Consensus Panel is that of "Dr. Robert Bowman, former head of the Department of Aeronautical Engineering at the US Air Force Institute of Technology, and the Director of Advanced Space Programs Development (“Star Wars”) under Presidents Ford and Carter."

The page, "War Games: The Key to a 9/11 USAF Stand Down," notes that Dr. Bowman who is "so decorated with medals and honors they could fill a patriotic Christmas tree... has inside knowledge of military protocol, and has stated that it is apparent to him that the massive military exercises that took place on September 11, 2001 were intentionally staged to confuse civil defenses."

The panel, whose members also include a retired US Navy fighter pilot who subsequently spent 27 years as an airline pilot, as well as a U.S. Air Force pilot who served for 31 years, continues their report:

One would expect that having so many exercises would have caused some confusion, which might have slowed down the military response. Indeed, statements to this effect have been made:

According to a summary of a 9/11 Commission interview with Canadian Lt. Gen. Rick Findley, who was at NORAD as the Battle Staff Director at Cheyenne Mountain Operations Center (CMOC) on September 11,2001, there was, following the second attack on the Twin Towers, “confusion as to how many, and which aircraft, were hijacked. There was no situational awareness that was directly credible, and CMOC was relying on the communications over the phone lines with its operations sectors.

At Andrews Air Force Base outside Washington, DC, FAA Air Traffic Controller James Ampey, stationed at Andrews Tower, reported in a 9/11 Commission interview that there were an unusually high number of aircraft taking-off and landing at Andrews that morning because previously scheduled military exercises were underway. The radar screens were showing “emergencies all over the place.” - Source

An independent study in 2011 gave detailed accounts of nine falsely reported hijackings on 9/11, plus nine other reported aircraft emergencies.

This study by 9/11 researcher "Shoestring" is the most important reference, it begins:

Although it has been widely reported that four commercial aircraft were hijacked over the United States on September 11, 2001, what is less well known is that while the terrorist attacks were taking place and for many hours after, numerous additional aircraft gave indications that they had been hijacked or, for other reasons, were singled out as potential emergencies. More than 20 aircraft were identified as possible hijackings, according to some accounts, and other aircraft displayed signs of emergencies, such as losing radio communication with air traffic controllers or transmitting a distress signal.

Reports about these false alarms have revealed extraordinary circumstances around some of the incidents and bizarre explanations for how they arose. For example, it has been claimed that the pilots of one foreign aircraft approaching the U.S. set their plane's transponder to transmit a code signaling they had been hijacked simply to show authorities that they were aware of what had been taking place in America that morning. Another aircraft reported as transmitting a distress signal while approaching the U.S. was subsequently found to have been canceled, and still at the airport.

There may be innocent explanations for some of the less serious false alarms, such as those simply involving the temporary loss of radio communication with the plane, which is a common occurrence and happens on a daily basis. But, viewed in its entirety, the evidence appears highly suspicious and raises serious questions. Why, for example, were there so many false alarms on September 11? Why did so many of them involve false reports of hijackings or aircraft falsely signaling that they had been hijacked? The details of specific incidents that have been reported, which I describe below, show that these false alarms must have been something more than just the results of confusion caused by the terrorist attacks.


One possibility to consider is that some of the false alarms related to training exercises taking place on September 11. There is evidence supporting this contention.

Read the entire report here:

So much for the contention at of there being "a distinct lack of evidence for any of these exercises adversely affecting the response to 9/11."

Similarly, Shoestring's article, "'Let's Get Rid of This Goddamn Sim': How NORAD Radar Screens Displayed False Tracks All Through the 9/11 Attacks," debunks the claim at the war games page that "there's no evidence at all that 'false blips' were in use on 9/11."

These blips were part of the war game exercise Vigilant Guardian. In a March 2012 article entitled, "'Real-World or Exercise': Did the U.S. Military Mistake the 9/11 Attacks for a Training Scenario?," Shoestring writes:

It has been claimed that Vigilant Guardian was terminated shortly after United Airlines Flight 175 became the second plane to crash into the World Trade Center, at 9:03 a.m. on September 11. However, evidence indicates it may have continued long after that time. It has also been claimed that the participation of military staffers in the exercise had little effect on their ability to protect America against the attacks, and that Vigilant Guardian may even have had beneficial effects. For example, in its final report, the 9/11 Commission claimed that the response to the attacks "was, if anything, expedited by the increased number of staff at the sectors and at NORAD because of the scheduled exercise." However, a significant amount of evidence casts doubt upon this claim.

Again, "a significant amount of evidence" not a "a distinct lack of evidence."

Conclusion from the 9/11 Consensus Panel:

Because of the rescheduling of military exercises normally scheduled for different times, there were an extraordinary number of exercises underway the morning of September 11, 2001.

The Department of Defense and the 9/11 Commission failed to report all but one of the exercises that occurred that morning.

They also denied that such exercises slowed down military responses to the attacks.

Had the 9/11 Commission reported the full extent of the exceptional number of exercises it knew were operating that morning, the above-quoted statements by military officers such as Eberhart, Marr, and Myers – that the exercises did not, by causing confusion, slow down the military response – would have seemed implausible.

Any new investigation should probe the fact that, taken together, this evidence suggests that:

(1) the Pentagon, after creating conditions that confused the military response to the attacks, sought to cover up its creation of these conditions, and that

(2) the 9/11 Commission facilitated this cover-up by not making public the information held in its records cited above.

But the Arabesque: 9/11 Truth blog perhaps put it best:
NORAD commander-in-Chief Ralph Eberhart was asked by the 9/11 Commission if these war games "helped" response to the 9/11 attacks and responded nonsensically, "sir, my belief is that it helped because of the manning, because of the focus, because the crews - they have to be airborne in 15 minutes and that morning, because of the exercise, they were airborne in six or eight minutes. And so I believe that focus helped." This was clearly a ridiculous statement; if the war games "helped" response to the attacks, why were none of the planes intercepted during the attacks; what "response" was there at all? In fact, there is very strong evidence that these drills hindered response since they moved air defenses away from New York and Washington, added "injects" to radar screens, and created general confusion.
