Galloway V Hitchens (DIGITALLY REMASTERED)

The Greatest debate of modern times. if you've never seen this.....[from 2005]



Hitchens comes out looking like a propagandist with misleading and often simplistic or confabulated summations of various events. Galloway is not perfect either, but his nod to the geopolitical machinations going on behind the scenes, something obfuscated by Hitchens in my opinion, makes his a much better argument.

No one likes a dictatorship but one would obviously prefer to be alive rather than dead or displaced - a result of the effort at Iraqi regime change. Indeed, when it comes to change there is often more than one solution to the problem. Given enough time dictatorships can actually be unwound so long as there is no anarchy within the country or threats/foreign interests influencing things negatively from the outside- look at what has happened in Egypt, Indonesia and now Burma. Plus pressure can be put on countries to ease their torturous habits as part of a longer term process.

An example of a Hitchens confabulation: Consider the notion of the savage resistance to the US occupation of Iraq and the sectarian violence that killed hundreds of thousands of civilians - and that it is therefore wrong to support these resistors and, by implication, resistance. Hitchens equated the two, which, although likely carried out in many cases by the same groups, actually represent two separate agendas. One cannot say, in a wholesale way, that resisting an invasion is necessarily bad.

-When we look at the situation from a sectarian perspective, yes, the Sunnis did not want to lose power, resisted occupation from the start, and later fought against various empowered Shiite groups who engaged in the ethnic cleansing of the capital. That both groups wanted to see the US removed, is understandable and justified -which is the point I believe Galloway would stand behind- rather than endorsing any ethnic cleansing. If you look at recent Galloway statements on Libya we see that he would like to see non-violent resolutions within Middle East countries and continued resistance against outside inference and occupation.

Vets Sue CIA Over Mind Control Tests

For two decades or more during the Cold War, the CIA and the military allegedly plied the unwitting with acid, weed, and dozens of psychoactive drugs, in a series of zany (and sometimes dangerous) mind-control experiments. Now, the Vietnam Veterans of America are suing the agency and the Pentagon for perceived abuses suffered under the so-called "MK-ULTRA" and other projects.

Six veterans are suffering from all kinds of ailments tied to this
"diabolical and secret testing program," according to a statement from the vets’ lawyers, passed on to SpyTalk’s Jeff Stein.

The experiments allegedly included "the use of troops to test nerve gas, psychochemicals, and thousands of other toxic chemical or biological substances, and … the insertion of septal implants in the brains of subjects in … mind control experiments that went awry, leaving many civilian and military subjects with permanent disabilities." Subjects were tested without their consent, the veterans say. And when the trials were over, the government failed to "provide health care or compensation."

In a book published last year, former military psychiatrist James Ketchum describes an Army project — separate from the CIA’s efforts — that took place at Edgewood Arsenal in Maryland. There, he saw test subjects "carry on conversations with various invisible people for as long as 2-3 days." Others "salute latrines" and attempt to "revive a gas mask" that they mistake for a woman

Post-Fukushima, Japan's Irradiated Fish Worry B.C. Experts

Are fish from the Pacific Ocean and Japanese coastal and inland waters safe to eat 16 months after the Fukushima nuclear disaster?

Governments and many scientists say they are. But the largest collection of data on radiation in Japanese fish tells a very different story.

In June, 56 percent of Japanese fish catches tested by the Japanese government were contaminated with ce-sium-137 and -134. (Both are human-made radioactive isotopes—produced through nuclear fission—of the element cesium.)

And 9.3 percent of the catches exceeded Japan’s official ceiling for cesium, which is 100 becquerels per kilogram (Bq/kg). (A becquerel is a unit of radioactivity equal to one nuclear disintegration per second.)

Radiation levels remain especially high in many species that Japan has exported to Canada in recent years, such as cod, sole, halibut, landlocked kokanee, carp, trout, and eel.
-----------------------------------
The numbers show that far from dissipating with time, as government officials and scientists in Canada and elsewhere claimed they would, levels of radiation from Fukushima have stayed stubbornly high in fish. In June 2012, the average contaminated fish catch had 65 becquerels of cesium per kilo. That’s much higher than the average of five Bq/kg found in the days after the accident back in March 2011, before cesium from Fukushima had spread widely through the region’s food chain.

In some species, radiation levels are actually higher this year than last.

The highest cesium level in all of the catches came in March—a year after the accident—when a landlocked masu salmon caught in a Japanese river was found to have a whopping 18,700 becquerels of cesium per kilogram—or 187 times Japan’s ceiling

Former Citi Boss: Reduce Leverage to 15 Times Assets, Put EVERYTHING Back on the Books, and Mark All Assets to Market EVERY DAY

It is – justifiably – big news that former Citi CEO Sandy Weill said that we should break up the big banks, and separate traditional depository banking from speculative investing. Indeed, even congress members are confronting top government officials on why they haven’t done this.

But Weill said 3 other equally important things today.

First, Weill told CNBC that the financial crisis was largely caused by too much leverage, and that we should reduce leverage to between 12-15 times. (Background.)

Secondly, Weill said that we have to restore transparency, so that nothing is hidden off balance sheet. (Leading economist Anna Schwartz told the Wall Street journal in 2008: “The Fed … has gone about as if the problem is a shortage of liquidity. That is not the basic problem. The basic problem for the markets is that [uncertainty] that the balance sheets of financial firms are credible.”)

Third, Weill argued that all assets must be marked to market every day

Plus put back Glass Steagall, prosecute for fraud, and VOID most of the Derivatives Casino Gambling Market (although making total leverage 12-15 times assets should cover this problem).

German Intelligence: "al-Qaeda" All Over Syria

German intelligence estimates that "around 90" terror attacks that "can be attributed to organizations that are close to al-Qaeda or jihadist groups" were carried out in Syria between the end of December and the beginning of July, as reported by the German daily Die Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ). This was revealed by the German government in a response to a parliamentary question.

In response to the same question, the German government admitted that it had received several reports from the German foreign intelligence service, the BND, on the May 25 massacre in the Syrian town of Houla. But it noted that the content of these reports was to remain classified "by reason of national interest", Like many other Western governments, Germany expelled Syria's ambassador in the immediate aftermath of the massacre, holding the Syrian government responsible for the violence

100 Million Poor People In America And 39 Other Facts About Poverty That Will Blow Your Mind

The following are 40 facts about poverty in America that will blow your mind….

#1 In the United States today, somewhere around 100 million Americans are considered to be either “poor” or “near poor”.

#2 It is being projected that when the final numbers come out later this year that the U.S. poverty rate will be the highest that it has been in almost 50 years.

#3 Approximately 57 percent of all children in the United States are living in homes that are either considered to be either “low income” or impoverished.

#4 Today, one out of every four workers in the United States brings home wages that are at or below the poverty level.

#5 According to the Wall Street Journal, 49.1 percent of all Americans live in a home where at least one person receives financial benefits from the government. Back in 1983, that number was below 30 percent.

#6 It is projected that about half of all American adults will spend at least some time living below the poverty line before they turn 65.

#7 Today, there are approximately 20.2 million Americans that spend more than half of their incomes on housing. That represents a 46 percent increase from 2001.

#8 During 2010, 2.6 million more Americans fell into poverty. That was the largest increase that we have seen since the U.S. government began keeping statistics on this back in 1959.

#9 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the percentage of “very poor” rose in 300 out of the 360 largest metropolitan areas during 2010.

#10 Since Barack Obama became president, the number of Americans living in poverty has risen by 6 million and the number of Americans on food stamps has risen by 14 million.

#11 Right now, one out of every seven Americans is on food stamps and one out of every four American children is on food stamps

Conservatives Call on Obama to Establish ‘Safe Zones’ in Syria

The letter was signed by 62 foreign-policy hands, most of them conservative. The list of signees includes several former Bush administration officials, such as Elliott Abrams, Karl Rove, Paul Bremer, Robert Joseph, and Douglas Feith, and several advisors to the Mitt Romney campaign, including Eric Edelman, Jamie Fly, Robert Kagan, and Stephen Rademaker. Radwah Ziadeh, a member of the Syrian National Council, also signed.

The signatories call on Obama to use military power to establish safe zones in already liberated areas of Syria to protect civilians there and to counter the threat of the Syrian regime using chemical or biological weapons

Establishing "safe zones" led to massive intervention in Libya - air power, mercs and special forces.

Harvard Study – Published in National Institute of Health Journal – Finds Fluoride Lowers Children’s IQ

The Harvard School for Public Health reports:

For years health experts have been unable to agree on whether fluoride in the drinking water may be toxic to the developing human brain. Extremely high levels of fluoride are known to cause neurotoxicity in adults, and negative impacts on memory and learning have been reported in rodent studies, but little is known about the substance’s impact on children’s neurodevelopment. In a meta-analysis, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang for the first time combined 27 studies and found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children. Based on the findings, the authors say that this risk should not be ignored, and that more research on fluoride’s impact on the developing brain is warranted.

Iran Accuses Israel of Plotting Bulgaria Bus Attack

"It's amazing that just a few minutes after the terrorist attack, Israeli officials announced that Iran was behind it," Iran's U.N. Ambassador Mohammad Khazaee told a U.N. Security Council debate on the Middle East. "We have never and will not engage in such a despicable attempt on ... innocent people."

"Such terrorist operation could only be planned and carried out by the same regime whose short history is full of state terrorism operations and assassinations aimed implicating others for narrow political gains," Khazaee said. "I could provide ... many examples showing that this regime killed its own citizens and innocent Jewish people during the last couple of decades.

Israel's U.N. Ambassador Haim Waxman said Iran's fingerprints were all over the bomb attack in Bulgaria, as well as dozens of other plots in recent months around the world
.
http://news.yahoo.com/iran-accuses-israel-plotting-bulgaria-bus-attack-222443709.html

Although it is difficult to establish who carried out the bombing it is a welcome surprise that Iran thinks Israel may have been behind it. More encouraging, in terms of having a truthful debate, is that the Iranian Ambassador is willing to cite past examples of Israeli false flag terror.

This is a very important development because it seeks to blow the lid off people's ignorance regarding this deceptive tactic in a public forum.

Will Downing Street Memo Recur on Iran?

Recent remarks by Sir John Sawers, who heads Britain’s MI6 (the secret intelligence service that is Britain’s CIA counterpart), leave us wondering if Sawers is preparing to “fix” intelligence on Iran, as his immediate predecessor, Sir John Scarlett, did on Iraq.

Scarlett’s pre–Iraq War role in creating “dodgy dossiers” hyping the threat of nonexistent “weapons of mass destruction” is relatively well known. On July 4, the red warning light for politicization was again flashing brightly in London, as Sawers told British senior civil servants that Iran is “two years away” from becoming a “nuclear-weapons state.” How did Sawers come up with “two years?”

Since late 2007, the benchmark for weighing Iran’s nuclear program has been the unanimous assessment by all 16 U.S. intelligence agencies that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in late 2003 and that as of mid-2007 had not restarted it. Those judgments have been re-validated every year since, despite strong pressure to bow to more ominous — but evidence-starved — assessments by Israel and its neoconservative supporters

West Spreads Syrian WMDs Lies For Foreign Intervention

Hysterical propaganda has increasingly amplified since early Monday when the Syrian government's Foreign Minister Jihad Makdissi insisted that if Syria had any unconventional weapons, they would be under strict security and only used against foreign aggression. Makdissi went on to clarify further his statement by insisting that his comments in no way implied Syria even has such weapons.

Despite this, the Western media has begun the all too familiar WMD-mantra, heard in the lead up to Iraq, where bold-faced lies and fabrications based on knowingly dubious intelligence sources, were picked specifically to tell the narrative the West sought to sell the public,.

The culmination of this propaganda campaign verses the government and people of Iraq, of whom over 2 million died between sanctions leading up to the war and the West's invasion and occupation, was the West's primary intelligence source, Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, codenamed "Curveball," admitting that " I had the chance to fabricate something to topple the regime." In other words, as the Guardian puts it in the title of their article, "Defector admits to WMD lies that triggered Iraq war."

Now in Syria, we have another "defector," the discredited, former-Syrian ambassador to Iraq, Nawaf Fares, clearly fabricating fantastical tales to both undermine the Syrian government, and give the West the impetus it needs for wider military intervention - especially since NATO's proxy "Free Syrian Army" has suffered catastrophic defeats in both Damascus, and now Aleppo. Fares claimed that he knew Syria's weapons were being mobilized, and that the government planned on using them

The New York Times Admits That Virtually Every Major News Organization Allows The News To Be Censored By Government Officials

In one of the most shocking articles that the New York Times has ever put out, a New York Times reporter has openly admitted that virtually every major mainstream news organization allows government bureaucrats and campaign officials to censor their stories. For example, almost every major news organization in the country has agreed to submit virtually all quotes from anyone involved in the Obama campaign or the Romney campaign to gatekeepers for "quote approval" before they will be published.

If the gatekeeper in the Obama campaign does not want a certain quote to get out, the American people will not see it, and the same thing applies to the Romney campaign. The goal is to keep the campaigns as "on message" as possible and to avoid gaffes at all cost. But this kind of thing is not just happening with political campaigns.

According to the New York Times, "quote approval" has become "commonplace throughout Washington". In other words, if you see a quote in the newspaper from someone in the federal government then it is safe to say that a gatekeeper has almost certainly reviewed that quote and has approved it. This is another sign that "the free and independent media" in this country is a joke. What we get from the mainstream media is a very highly filtered form of propaganda, and that is one reason why Americans are turning away from the mainstream media in droves. People want the truth, and more Americans than ever realize that they are not getting it from the mainstream media

Nanoparticle technology turns personal care products toxic

Minerals like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, commonly used in sunscreen lotions, foundation and other liquid types of lotions are harmless in their normal size. They simply sit on the skin rather than absorbing in to the skin since they are too large to penetrate its protective barrier.

However, when these are broken down into nanoparticles which are often smaller than the size of a red blood cell, they are easily absorbed into the skin. There is research showing that nanoparticles of zinc oxide and other ingredients like aluminum collect in parts of the brain and cause cell death.

These particles are so easily absorbed that they are detectable in all areas of the body, including vital organs. Animal studies have shown that when they are applied to the skin, they penetrate tissues and cells causing damage when they begin to build up

Egypt is allowing Palestinians free entry to its territory in a landmark move ending part of a longtime blockade on Gaza.

The Biggest Human Trafficking Case, Operated by Israel, Dismissed in USA

The three defendants who pleaded guilty will receive the opportunity to retract their pleas. Just 11 months ago, federal prosecutors dropped similar accusations against owners of Hawaii’s Aloun Farms, whose tactics were used to keep foreign workers in their service. The case was dropped after the lead prosecutor misstated the law in front of a grand jury. The same team of federal prosecutors handled the Global Horizons case. “Based on this further investigation, the government has determined that dismissal of this matter is in the interest of justice,” reads the Global Horizons case dismissal order.

Kevin Ryan: The Nexus Between Terror Propaganda and Terrorism (State Sponsored Terror)

The Tonkin Gulf non-event was undoubtedly an example of false flag manipulation for political purposes and the Liberty incident appears to have been a major cover-up of an attack upon U.S. servicemen. State-sponsored terrorism was already a well-established fact by then, however. For example, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff approved a plan called Operation Northwoods in 1962.

Operation Northwoods called “for a wave of violent terrorism to be launched in Washington, D.C., Miami, and elsewhere. People would be framed for bombings they did not commit; planes would be hijacked. [This would provide] the public and international backing they needed to launch their war.”[10] The signed documents are available today and because of this we know that high level U.S. government representatives conspire, on occasion, to commit crimes against the American people for the purpose of starting wars.[11]

Although Operations Northwoods was rejected by President Kennedy, the plan becomes more interesting historically when one considers the ensuing activities of the members of the JCS who approved that plan. For example, JCS chaiman Lyman Leminitzer went directly from approving Operation Northwoods in 1962 to become Supreme Allied Commander in Europe (SACEUR), from 1963 to 1969, putting him in charge of NATO forces. According to author Daniele Ganser, the SACEUR ran an agency called the Clandestine Planning Committee (CPC) that was responsible for coordinating Operation Gladio.[12]

Gladio was a well-coordinated covert campaign of terrorism directed by the U.S. and other Western governments against their own populations. Hundreds of innocent people were killed or maimed in terrorist attacks which were then blamed on leftist subversives or other political opponents. Italian General Paolo Inzerilli commanded the Italian forces of Gladio from 1974 to 1986 and he later said that “the omnipresent United States dominated the secret CPC that directed the secret war.”[13]

From NATO and CPC headquarters in Paris, and later Brussels, the U.S. played a leading role in arming and coordinating the terrorist groups in various European countries from 1960 into the late 1980s. Run largely by the US, Britain and Belgium, other NATO countries involved included Germany, France, Italy, Denmark, Norway, The Netherlands, Portugal, Turkey, and Greece. The terrorist attacks of Gladio were coupled with terror propaganda in order to drive public and political will to fund and support ever-increasing military preparation and response to the perceived communist threat

Large scale military, paramilitary and terrorist forces have been, and are, running amok to promote terrorism as a justification for the existence of the military-industrial-complex.

Those who do not recognise this fact - that large scale, state sponsored (and murderous) conspiracies exist - do not know enough history.

Iranian or Israeli? Bulgaria Bombing Analysis, Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich [UPDATED]



The false flag question must be asked in regard to this attack because of its repeated use in the past. At present it is obvious that Israel and the West are trying to force conflict on Iran.

Meanwhile in Syria the same thing (fomenting war) is underway ...

Islamic Fighters Swarm into Syria
The Sunni fighters flooding into Syria from Iraq, Jordan and elsewhere, are receiving funding from private organizations in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Kuwait and hooking up with rebel militias in Syria. Some groups are linked to al-Qaeda and have agenda’s that go beyond toppling Assad, including sectarian rivalries.

Several of the Gulf Arab states, notably Saudi Arabia and Qatar, are providing the these fighters and the rebels with aid and weapons with the help of coordination from the CIA.

UPDATE:

Apparently Al-CIA-Duh has claimed responsibility for the Bulgarian bomb attack:

Russia Joins WTO – Putin Kowtows to the Globalists

Russian President Vladimir Putin just signed a treaty that makes Russia a World Trade Organization member. Russia’s accession to the WTO is the result of 18 years of negotiations.

Russian media revealed that as part of the deal, Russia will have to lower its protective tariff rate from 10% to 7.8%.

This signals the end of Russia’s sovereignty in trade and economic matters. Foreign investors will now be able to buy up Russia’s industries, and there are already plans to buy out Russia’s telecommunications companies.

Thousands of Russian businesses are wary that the low import duties and caps on subsidies that are a condition of joining the WTO will hurt them.

Now the US congress wants to “normalize” trade with Russia

A Concise List of Recent Bank Fraud

■ Laundering money for drug cartels. See this, this, this and this (indeed, drug dealers kept the banking system afloat during the depths of the 2008 financial crisis)
■ Laundering money for terrorists
■ Engaging in mafia-style big-rigging fraud against local governments. See this, this and this
■ Shaving money off of virtually every pension transaction they handled over the course of decades, stealing collectively billions of dollars from pensions worldwide. Details here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here
■ Charging “storage fees” to store gold bullion … without even buying or storing any gold . And raiding allocated gold accounts
■ Committing massive and pervasive fraud both when they initiated mortgage loans and when they foreclosed on them (and see this)
■ Pledging the same mortgage multiple times to different buyers. See this, this, this, this and this. This would be like selling your car, and collecting money from 10 different buyers for the same car
■ Cheating homeowners by gaming laws meant to protect people from unfair foreclosure
■ Committing massive fraud in an $800 trillion dollar market which effects everything from mortgages, student loans, small business loans and city financing
■ Engaging in insider trading of the most important financial information
■ Pushing investments which they knew were terrible, and then betting against the same investments to make money for themselves. See this, this, this, this and this
■ Engaging in unlawful “frontrunning” to manipulate markets. See this, this, this, this, this and this
■ Engaging in unlawful “Wash Trades” to manipulate asset prices. See this, this and this

New Enhanced Virus Emerges After Vax Combination

According to a report by Clare Peddie of Adelaide Now, the administration of two different vaccines to chickens in order to “control infectious disease” has resulted in the creation of an entirely new virus strain in the Melbourne and Sydney areas of Australia. The new strains were highly virulent and had a relatively high mortality rate according to researchers.

Chickens are routinely vaccinated in Australia for laryngotracheitis virus (ILTV) which is itself an infectious disease. There are three available types of ILTV vaccines in Australia.

Recently, however, the application of two or more types of vaccines resulted in a recombination of the DNA of two virus strains which were administered in separate doses and thus an entirely new strain of the virus.

Asia-Pacific Centre for Animal Health researchers examined the DNA sequence of the virus against the DNA sequence of the existing strains contained within the three vaccines and were “surprised” to find that the new virus was an entirely new strain.

The fact that the virus is so highly communicable is also extremely concerning. But the mortality rate associated with the new virus is even more worrisome.
------------------------------------------
this recent incident only demonstrates further that vaccines containing “attenuated” viruses are indeed capable of transmitting the virus it has allegedly been designed to prevent. It also goes to show that, in contrast to erroneous claims made by doctors and vaccine promoters the world over that “attenuated” means “dead,” the viruses contained in the vaccines are very much alive

French Foreign Minister Accused of Falsifying Reports on Syria "To Provoke a War"

On 19 March 2012, a high French official invited Arab journalists based in Paris to inform them of the internal battle being waged within the French government and, in particular, the Quai d’Orsay [the French Foreign Ministry] regarding Syria. According to this person, the French Ambassador in Damascus, Eric Chevallier, whose embassy had just been shut down and who had returned to Paris, challenged Minister Juppé in front of his colleagues. He accused Alain Juppé of having ignored his embassy reports and of having falsified summaries of them to provoke a war against Syria.

In March 2011, at the beginning of the events currently besetting Syria, the Foreign Ministry hurriedly dispatched fact finders to Deraa to appraise what was happening. Their report, submitted to Paris, indicated that tensions had dissipated following several demonstrations, information that contradicted Al-Jazeera and France 24 reports that the city of Deraa was being violently torn apart. The ambassador requested the mission be extended in order to follow developing events. The Foreign Minister, furious about the first report, telephoned him and demanded that he alter it to state that a bloody repression of the city was occurring. The Ambassador then arranged a teleconference between the Chief of Mission in Deraa and the Minister and had him repeat that no such repression had occurred. The minister then threatened the ambassador and the conversation ended icily.

Immediately afterwards, Alain Juppé’s cabinet pressured Agence France Press to publish cables aligned with the view of the Minister. During the months that followed, altercations between Ambassador Eric Chevallier and Alain Juppé continued to multiply, until the moment of the Iranian hostage crisis in January 2012 and the death of “journalist” Gilles Jacquier. At this moment, the Ambassador was ordered to pull the covert DGSE agents working under press cover out of Syria, at which point he realized the importance of the secret operation being carried out by Alain Juppé.1

As former Minister of Defense, Alain Juppé appears to have maintained tight friendships within the armed services and to be able to rely on agents loyal to him.

The same source affirms that the ambassadorial reports were either ignored or falsified which led the ambassador himself to shore up his position by having forwarded to the Foreign Ministry equivalent European diplomatic reports attesting that Syria was not in the throes of a cycle of protest and crackdown but was rather being destabilized by armed groups coming from outside the country

Derivatives Should Be Banned From Financial Markets

The idea that the financial products known as derivatives pose a danger to the financial system is nothing new. Commentators have been pointing this out for years. Most famously, Warren Buffett referred to derivatives as "time bombs" and financial "weapons of mass destruction." Recently a complex derivatives trade caused over $5 billion in losses at J.P. Morgan.

Derivatives are bets between two parties that are made today with a payoff in the future based on the value of some stock, bond, or index. One party will profit if the reference security or index goes up in value and the other party will profit if it goes down. These bets usually settle up every three months based on value at that time, and then a new calculation period begins. There are many variations on this basic pattern, but almost all derivatives involve some form of a bet in which gains and losses are calculated and settled-up periodically.

If derivatives are as dangerous as the commentators suggest, why are they permitted? If they are such a threat to the financial system, why does the size of derivatives bets continue to grow? The answers have to do with several myths the big bank derivatives players have created. These myths are false and distract interested parties from doing what needs to be done to ban derivatives. It's time to demolish these myths once and for all

How the Inventors of Dragon Speech Recognition Technology Lost Everything

"James and Janet Baker were the inventors of Dragon Systems speech recognition software, and after years of work, they created a multimillion dollar company. At the height of the tech boom, with investment offers rolling in, they turned to Goldman Sachs for financial advice. For a five million dollar fee, Goldman hooked them up with Lernout & Hauspie, the Belgium speech recognition company. After consultations with Goldman Sachs, the Bakers traded their company for $580 million in Lernout & Hauspie stock. But it turned out Lernout & Hauspie was involved in cooking their books and went bankrupt. Dragon was sold in a bankruptcy auction to Scansoft, and the Bakers lost everything. Goldman and Sachs itself had decided against investing in Lernout & Hauspie two years previous to this because they were lying about their Asian sales. The Bakers are suing for one billion dollars."

1996 TWA Flight 800 Shot Down in US Surface-to-Air Missile Test

Video link: TWA Flight 800 Shot Down by Surface-to-Air Missile

On 17 July 1996 TWA flight 800 exploded mid-air off Long Island New York. The official investigation claimed that the cause of the accident was due to an explosion in the empty centre fuel tank- but this is not true.

The clip above provides clear evidence that the FBI, NTSB and US military worked to suppress any evidence that pointed to a missile causing the crash. The reason: It was no terrorist missile but an errant US Navy Missile(s).

The video ends by stating that a "mysterious" ship sped from the crash area following the shootdown. We now know that the mysterious ship(s) were US Navy warships that had been conducting missile tests in the area.

Monsanto Threatens Europe

Is Monsanto waging war on the European Union? The notion isn’t as daft as you may think.

Genetically modified (GM) crops have pervaded the U.S. food supply for nearly twenty years, albeit incrementally and often inconspicuously.

But the European Union has shown much stronger resolve and skepticism against GM crops. As a result, mega-corporations like Monsanto haven’t made much headway into the European food supply.

Now, however, the EU is saying that they’ll change their position on GM crops and GMOs (genetically modified organisms), allowing foods to contain genetically modified components below certain levels.

Curiously, this comes just after a similar decision made last year, which permitted the incorporation of GM crops in animal feeds.

This is exactly the sort of incremental shift toward GMOs we observed here in the U.S. The question is, what’s going on with the EU’s change of mind?

It looks like the prime suspects here are the U.S. government, the World Trade Organization, and Monsanto.

According to the New American, Mercola.com cites U.S. diplomatic cables that indicate clear instances of collusion between Monsanto and the U.S. government to exert pressure on Europe in this matter.
--------------------------------------
Over in the UK, the Agriculture Biotechnology Council (ABC) published a report, “Going for Growth,” that strongly advocates GMOs as the route to advancing the region’s agricultural interests.

ABC is not really a government organization, as the New American notes, but the Council lobbies for Monsanto, Bayer, DuPont, and numerous other biotechnological companies

'Syrian Rebels Create Mayhem to Blame it on Assad Regime'

Moscow says those behind the latest massacre in Syria want to unleash sectarian violence and ignite full civil war. Over two hundred people are believed to have been killed in the central province of Hama. Both government and rebel forces blame each other for the slaughter - while the UN remains paralysed on whether to extend its observer mission, or impose sanctions. RT talks to author and Middle East expert Tariq Ali who joins me now from London.

Romney Caught Lying by SEC Forms: He was CEO, President, Chairman and Owner of Bain When He Claims He Wasn't

If running a successful campaign is largely keeping your opponent on the defensive, then Mitt Romney is in the political dog house - and it's his own fault, because he lied.

Let's step back up a second. The Obama campaign ran ads a short time ago and accused Romney of investing in firms that resulted in outsourcing jobs and increasing unemployment in the US. Romney claimed he was not responsible for his Bain vulture capital firm when this activity was taking place because he had left the company.

However, the Boston Globe revealed today (based on earlier stories in Talking Points Memo and Mother Jones):

Government documents filed by Mitt Romney and Bain Capital say Romney remained chief executive and chairman of the firm three years beyond the date he said he ceded control, even creating five new investment partnerships during that time.

Romney has said he left Bain in 1999 to lead the winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, ending his role in the company. But public Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) documents filed later by Bain Capital state he remained the firm's "sole stockholder, chairman of the board, chief executive officer, and president."

Also, a Massachusetts financial disclosure form Romney filed in 2003 states that he still owned 100 percent of Bain Capital in 2002. And Romney's state financial disclosure forms indicate he earned at least $100,000 as a Bain "executive" in 2001 and 2002, separate from investment earnings

War in August? US Sends Fourth Aircraft Carrier and Dozens of Underwater Drones Towards Iran

The US Navy has unexpectedly dispatched a fourth aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf, along with a fleet of underwater drones in what is being considered just the latest move in a series of escalations leading towards a potential war with Iran.

The deployment of dozens of small, unmanned submarine-like watercraft was confirmed by the Los Angeles Times this week, which cites military officials speaking on condition of anonymity.

This particular type of craft, unmanned SeaFox submersible, are reported to be sent to the Gulf so that the US military can detect and destroy any mines that may be planted in the waterway by Iranian officials if they escalate efforts to block the Strait of Hormuz, a strategically important narrow stretch of water that exists as an immensely important conduit for any resources being moved in or out of the Middle East

There is a LOT of US hardware in the region. War is likely either via pressure from the sanctions & intimidation -causing Iran to react- or from a false flag set up that mimics this scenario.

NATO's Secret Armies: Operation Gladio and Terrorism in Western Europe



An excellent overview of false flag terror in Europe with the admission that the staged attacks make it difficult to determine who is actually doing the killing.

It is likely that most of the terrorism is state sponsored. Pretty much all the recent events in the USA have involved the FBI.

Remember these acts constitute state sponsored murder. Many innocent people were killed.

World Health Organization Fails In Its Effort To Defend Mercury In Vaccines Before United Nations

Bowing to pressure from the Coalition for Mercury-free Drugs (CoMeD, Inc.) and other organizations, the World Health Organization (WHO) revealed its 2004 guidelines on eliminating, reducing, and replacing Thimerosal in vaccines to public health officials worldwide.

WHO made its disclosure before the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) where it met unprecedented resistance to its defense of the use of neurotoxic mercury in vaccines. “This is a huge development,” says CoMeD’s Vice President, David Geier, while speaking at UNEP’s INC4 meeting.

INC4 met June 27-July 2 in Uruguay, to negotiate a global treaty on mercury. CoMeD and other nongovernmental organizations who participated strongly opposed the use of mercury in human medicines. More importantly, entire continents and many individual nations expressed their desire for mercury-free vaccines.

Moreover, CoMeD is putting intense pressure on the World Health Organization by actively assisting nations in banning Thimerosal-preserved vaccines. One of these nations, Chile, became the first developing country to stop this use of mercury in 2012.

Cristina Girardi, a member of the Chamber of Deputies of Chile, addressed the opening session of INC4 gathering. While speaking, she warned, “… to keep the mercury in vaccines is to endanger the vaccine program in a misguided effort to protect a known neurotoxin.”

Why the Media is Not Reporting the Truth on Fukushima?

Paul Gunter, Beyond Nuclear joins Thom Hartmann. For the first time since before last year's March earthquake and tsunami - a nuclear reactor in Japan is up and running again. Despite 200,000 protesters gathering last week in Central Tokyo to demonstrate against turning any nuclear reactors back on - reactor number three at the Oil nuclear plant in the Fukui Prefecture in Western Japan was officially flipped on Sunday night - restarting Japan's embrace of nuclear power. Many of the other 49 reactors that have been shut down since last year - are scheduled to be turned on again later this month. But scientists are warning that the plants still haven't been properly upgraded to withstand a strong earthquake and tsunami - like the one that took out the Fukushima plant, which is still in the midst of a nuclear crisis.

Last week - record levels of radiation were discovered inside reactor one at the plant. A lethal dose of more than 10,000 millisieverts an hour was registered in the reactor - that's ten times more radiation than in reactors two and three. According to the operators of the plant - TEPCO - workers are unable to enter the site due to the high levels of radiation
.



Those reactors are STILL spewing out harmful radioactive elements that are going to cause long term health problems. The north of Japan should have been evacuated in the first days and the reactors treated like what happened with Chernobyl.

Although the mainstream media has not been trumpeting the danger, it is still there. The great problem with low dose radiation is that it is invisible and the impact is relatively subtle. The fact that the authorities in Japan and the US are actively covering up the matter does not help people understand what is really going on.

Remember, nuclear testing in the atmosphere was banned in the 60s because of the danger from relatively tiny amounts of radioactive fallout from a few pounds/kilos of fissile material. Today we face the fallout from tonnes of burning radioactive material, stuff that has been reacting vigorously for more then a year.

Petition: Properly Investigate the Crimes of 9/11

To be delivered to: The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

We, the undersigned, demand that a full, unbiased, and open-ended criminal and legal investigation of the 9/11 crimes, with full subpeona power and open access to all evidence, be ordered to be conducted by a properly authorized court or grand jury for the purposes of determining legally and conclusively from the full evidence who was responsible and the cause of the involved loss of life, property, and subsequent damages and delivering full justice in regular accordance with the Constitutional guarantee of due process and fair trial.

Since there's extremely widespread doubt among the general population (from 40% to a majority in national polls) that the real story of 9/11 and who was responsible has been allowed to come out and is not covered up, we demand that a true, open-ended criminal investigation with full subpoena power and access to all evidence be conducted by a universally acceptable proper court or properly empaneled grand jury
.
http://signon.org/sign/properly-investigate?source=s.em.cr&r_by=4525123&mailing_id=4213

The "investigations" we have been treated to thus far have been whitewashes. So much of the 911 Commission story is made up of almost certain falsehoods, while omitting important information, and the scientific NIST reports into the building collapses constitute unsubstantiated claims and heinous omissions of hard evidence.

All attempts at initiating a proper criminal investigation into these mass murders should be supported. Please sign up and take a moral stand against injustice and tyranny [see link above].

Everything They’re Telling Us About Syria….is False?

Friday, we read in the New York Times and elsewhere about one of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s most important supporters and allies having defected. The impression one gets is that Assad’s government is in a state of collapse— and this gives credibility to those pushing for Assad to turn over power.

But what the media are not mentioning is that Brigadier General Manaf Tlass did not defect directly from the Assad inner circle. He had already fallen into disfavor early in the uprising and lost his command in May 2011—14 months ago. If you had that additional piece of information, you would interpret the news reports in a totally different way.

When a piece of evidence that contradicts the overall impression is absent from the reportage, the reportage itself is almost worthless

Putin: West Exports 'Airstrike Democracy' to Cling to Arab Influence

Russian President Vladimir Putin has criticized the West for clinging to its influence in the Arab world under the guise of "humanitarian operations." He dubbed western involvement in Arab affairs as nothing more than a "rocket and bomb democracy." At a meeting with top Russian diplomats Putin said that certain countries will do anything to retain the influence they have become accustomed to in the Arab world. He stressed that western nations often adopt a one-sided policy in Arab affairs that violates international law.

China Shuns US And Invests Direct In Iran Oil-Fields

Between Clinton’s ‘prices to be paid’ and Obama’s new trade-war, is it any wonder the Chinese have decided to escalate their ‘more-than-rhetoric’ from bartering away from the USD. After ignoring the sanctions and then receiving their exemption, PressTV reports tonight that China is to invest in developing north and south Iranian oil fields (which will produce 700,000 barrels per day of crude). One of the oil fields, Azadegan, has one of the world’s largest oil deposits, with in-place oil reserves estimated at 42 billion barrels – enough to tide China over a for a while – as Iran’s Oil Minister Rostam Qasemi adds after 10-15 years of negotiations the decision has finally (and coincidentally very timely) been reached as “the Chinese side has started its activities by investing USD 20 billion in the oil fields”.

CBS Reveals that Swine Flu Cases Seriously Overestimated

A three-month-long investigation by CBS News, released earlier this week that included state-by-state test results, revealed some very different facts. The CBS study found that H1N1 flu cases are NOT as prevalent as feared. A CBS article even states:

"If you've been diagnosed "probable" or "presumed" 2009 H1N1 or "swine flu" in recent months, you may be surprised to know this: odds are you didn't have H1N1 flu. In fact, you probably didn't have flu at all."

Obviously CBS News and the CDC are completely contradicting each other. So who is right?

Well, CBS reports that in late July 2009 the CDC advised states to STOP testing for H1N1 flu, and they also stopped counting individual cases.

Their rationale for this, according to CBS News, was that it was a waste of resources to test for H1N1 flu because it was already confirmed as an epidemic.

It's interesting to note that at the same time as the CDC decided the H1N1 epidemic warranted no further testing for cases due to its epidemic status, Finnish health authorities actually downgraded the threat of swine flu.

In late July the health ministry and the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) in Finland actually removed swine flu from a list of diseases considered dangerous to the public because the majority of cases recovered without medication or hospital care!

And, as the CDC continues to use fear to motivate and control Americans with their worst-case swine flu scenarios, they say nothing of the experience of those in the southern hemisphere, which just finished their flu season and found it was not as bad as expected
.
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/10/24/CBS-Reveals-that-Swine-Flu-Cases-Seriously-Overestimated.aspx

The article goes on to mention that there are ties to CDC administrators and the vaccine industry. There were news articles during the time of the swine flu scare that pointed out this connection and the puzzling plus misleading actions taken by the CDC.
