JFK 1991 - Jim Garrison's Closing Argument

Nothing has changed.

The JFK assassination, like other exposed Government conspiracies, has two aspects to it that should (but doesn't) wake up even the most hardcore cool-aid drinkers. The first is the highly improbable and/or physical impossibility of the official story while the second is the undeniable evidence of obfuscation and cover-up that is often spun as being indicative of, or representative of actions that intend to hide, "incompetence".

Thankfully Galileo's example has taught some of us the value of thinking for ourselves rather than accepting the word of the authorities, who tend to defend the lie (protecting the accepted "wisdom") about all manner of things.

From 911 to Fukushima, accepting the official position only lands us all in deep trouble.

New Car Engine Sends Shock Waves Through Auto Industry

Despite shifting into higher gear within the consumer's green conscience, hybrid vehicles are still tethered to the gas pump via a fuel-thirsty 100-year-old invention: the internal combustion engine.

However, researchers at Michigan State University have built a prototype gasoline engine that requires no transmission, crankshaft, pistons, valves, fuel compression, cooling systems or fluids. Their so-called Wave Disk Generator could greatly improve the efficiency of gas-electric hybrid automobiles and potentially decrease auto emissions up to 90 percent when compared with conventional combustion engines.

The engine has a rotor that's equipped with wave-like channels that trap and mix oxygen and fuel as the rotor spins. These central inlets are blocked off, building pressure within the chamber, causing a shock wave that ignites the compressed air and fuel to transmit energy.

The technology demonstrated in the clip is now 2 years old, however the article talks about a working prototype car that should be on the road by the end of the year.

Genetic Modification Gone Wild: 10 Signs That Our World May Be Destined To Resemble A Really Bad Science Fiction Movie

Did you know that today scientists are actually producing mice that tweet like birds, cats that glow in the dark, "monster salmon", "spider goats", cow/human hybrids, pig/human hybrids and even mouse/human hybrids? The very definition of life on earth is changing right before our eyes. Many scientists believe that genetic modification holds the key to feeding the entire planet and healing all of our diseases, but others are warning that genetic modification could literally transform our environment into a desolate wasteland and cause our world to resemble a really bad science fiction movie.

For decades, scientists around the globe have been fooling around with DNA and have been transplanting genes from one species to another. But now technology has advanced so dramatically that just about the only thing limiting scientists are their imaginations.

The things you are about to read about below are truly bizarre. In recent years, science has really "pushed the envelope" and scientists all over the planet are quite eager to push it even farther.

But is genetic modification really safe? Just because we have discovered that we can do something does that mean that we should rush forward and do it?

Today, approximately 93 percent of all soybeans and approximately 80 percent of all corn in the United States have been genetically modified.

Considering the fact that corn is literally in thousands upon thousands of our food products, there is a really good chance that you consumed some genetically modified food today.

Are you certain that it was safe?

Genetically modified crops have been linked to organ disruption in at least 19 different studies.

In addition, there is also an increasing body of evidence that suggests that genetically modified food actually alters our digestive systems.

Do we really know everything that we need to know about genetically modified food?

Airline Execs Fear Israel-Denmark Air Security Spat will Spread Across EU

The dispute erupted after the Danes refused to let Israeli security agents perform independent security checks on Israeli airline flights from Copenhagen to Israel recently. The Israelis were also not allowed to carry weapons. Israeli airline executives are concerned the ban could reach Israeli carriers flying from other European destinations.

If other European countries adopt Denmark's approach, Israeli airlines could face limitations all over the continent.

As a result, Israeli airlines executives believe Israel's security demands should be rethought, and Israeli requirements should be adapted to local European law.

Security inspections by Israeli personnel are the norm at airports around the world on flights operated by Israeli airlines. But because of the spat, flights between Denmark and Israel have been canceled.

Mike Rivero from makes the observation that there is a real danger from Israeli airport security:

As well it should. Israel does not have the right to send armed agents into other peoples' nations without permission. And frankly, I would not have Israeli security in my airport because all the really nasty "terror" incidents seem to walk right past them! ICTS security, an Israeli company with links to Mossad, was working security at every gate the 9-11 "terrorists" departed from. ICTS was also present at the Paris gate the shoe bomber used to get on his plane, and ICTS was in charge of Security when the crotch bomber was escorted onto his plane, BYPASSING the security checkpoint at Schiphol. Now Israel wants to have their armed security agents at every European airport?

I don't think so.

Cancer Surges In Body Scanner Operators; TSA Launches Cover-Up

Fearful of provoking further public resistance to naked airport body scanners, the TSA has been caught covering up a surge in cases of TSA workers developing cancer as a result of their close proximity to radiation-firing devices, perhaps the most shocking revelation to emerge from the latest FOIA documents obtained by the Electronic Privacy Information Center.

After Union representatives in Boston discovered a “cancer cluster” amongst TSA workers linked with radiation from the body scanners, the TSA sought to downplay the matter and refused to issue employees with dosimeters to measure levels of exposure.

The documents indicate how, “A large number of workers have been falling victim to cancer, strokes and heart disease.”

TEPCO: Stopping Melt-Through Fuel from Contaminating Groundwater will Cost Too Much, Hurt Company Stock Price

The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), which owns the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility struck by the massive earthquake and tsunami on March 11, has made it abundantly clear that protecting people and the environment from the radioactive fallout of its three massive reactor "melt-throughs" is not a priority.

According to a recent report in The Mainichi Daily News, TEPCO officials claim that installing proper containment vessels to prevent melted fuel from seeping into groundwater will cost too much, and hurt the company's stock value -- and thus it is fighting against calls by the Japanese government to install a concrete containment barrier below the damaged reactors.

To hell with TEPCO. Where is the Japanese Government in all this ?

Utter foolishness.

Study Confirms Safety, Cancer-targeting Ability Of Nutrient In Broccoli

Sulforaphane, one of the primary phytochemicals in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables that helps them prevent cancer, has been shown for the first time to selectively target and kill cancer cells while leaving normal prostate cells healthy and unaffected.

The findings, made by scientists in the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University, are another important step forward for the potential use of sulforaphane in cancer prevention and treatment. Clinical prevention trials are already under way for its use in these areas, particularly prostate and breast cancer.

Anthony Lawson: The Death of American Democracy VIDEO

The collapses of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centre, on September 11, 2001, were the most frightening images that I have ever seen, up until May 24th, 2011, when Binyamin Netanyahu addressed a joint session of the United States Congress and received 29 standing ovations, along with many other outbursts of sycophantic applause.

It was the final nail in a coffin, the construction of which began long ago, and in it all remaining vestiges of democracy were joyfully laid to rest—by those sworn to protect it—as it became clear that the United States was now controlled by Enemies Inside its Gates.

There ARE enemies inside the gates .... and they are doing much more than just "pulling a few strings."

Roundup: Birth Defects Caused By World's Top-Selling Weedkiller, Scientists Say

The chemical at the heart of the planet’s most widely used herbicide -- Roundup weedkiller, used in farms and gardens across the U.S. -- is coming under more intense scrutiny following the release of a new report calling for a heightened regulatory response around its use.

Critics have argued for decades that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup and other herbicides used around the globe, poses a serious threat to public health. Industry regulators, however, appear to have consistently overlooked their concerns.

A comprehensive review of existing data released this month by Earth Open Source, an organization that uses open-source collaboration to advance sustainable food production, suggests that industry regulators in Europe have known for years that glyphosate, originally introduced by American agricultural biotechnology giant Monsanto in 1976, causes birth defects in the embryos of laboratory animals.

False Flag Terror Alert: Missing SAMs in Libya alarms the West

The United States and its allies are concerned that al-Qaida and other terrorist groups may have got their hands on scores, if not hundreds, of shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles plundered from Libyan military bases after the civil war erupted there in March.

So far, only four missiles have been recovered, mainly by two European mine-clearing outfits — the Mines Advisory Group of Britain and the Swiss Foundation for Mine Actions — hired by the U.S. State Department to scour Libya for the missing SAMs.

Russia has sold countless thousands to Moammar Gadhafi's regime over the years, mainly Strela-2s, also known as SA-7s. But it's not known had many Libya had when fighting broke out there.

This type of missile, known in military-speak as man-portable air defense systems, or manpads, were designed to shoot down military aircraft using heat-seeking or radar-base guidance systems.

If you see stories like this appearing as front page news then it's more than likely that Western intelligence services will be staging some sort of attack on a civilian aircraft in order to justify either a ground invasion of Libya or an attack on an "Al Qaeda" stronghold.

With these SAMs distributed, or sold, all over the world almost any location/organisation can be set up as a target for bombings or invasions.

Climate Change Peer-Review Hypocrisy

The ClimateGate conspirators even got to review and reject papers that were critical of their work, as evident in this email from Ed Cook to Keith Briffa:

I got a paper to review ... that claims that the method of reconstruction that we use in dendroclimatology ... is wrong, biased, lousy, horrible, etc. ... If published as is, this paper could really do some damage ... It won't be easy to dismiss out of hand as the math appears to be correct theoretically ... I am really sorry but I have to nag about that review - Confidentially I now need a hard and if required extensive case for rejecting - to support Dave Stahle's and really as soon as you can.

And this email from Phil Jones to Michael Mann:.

Recently rejected two papers (one for JGR and for GRL) from people saying CRU has it wrong over Siberia. Went to town in both reviews, hopefully successfully. If either appears I will be very surprised, but you never know with GRL.

Of course the skeptics had no say in the refereeing of papers by Mann & Jones etc. So it seems having your friends review your papers and keeping your opponents out is fine, as long as your paper supports AGW. But if it's a paper that contradicts it, the top journals won't let you do that. Instead, your paper must be reviewed by your staunchest opponents who of course will always respond with ideologically-driven rejections.

New Study: Fluoride Can Damage the Brain - Avoid Use in Children

"The prolonged ingestion of fluoride may cause significant damage to health and particularly to the nervous system," concludes a review of studies by researchers Valdez-Jimenez, et al. published in Neurologia (June 2011), reports New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF).

The research team reports, "It is important to be aware of this serious problem and avoid the use of toothpaste and items that contain fluoride, particularly in children as they are more susceptible to the toxic effects of fluoride."

"Fluoride can be toxic by ingesting one part per million (ppm), and the effects are not immediate, as they can take 20 years or more to become evident," they write.

Most fluoridating U.S. public drinking water suppliers add fluoride chemicals to deliver 1 ppm fluoride (equal to about 1 milligram per quart) intending to benefit teeth and not to purify the water.

No Congress, no President has been strong enough to stand up to the foreign-controlled Federal Reserve Bank. Yet there is a catch - one that President Kennedy recognized before he was slain - the original deal in 1913 creating the Federal Reserve Bank had a simple backout clause. The investors loaned the United States Government $1 billion. And the backout clause allows the United States to buy out the system for that $1 billion. If the Federal Reserve Bank were demolished and the Congress of the United States took control of the currency, as required in the Constitution, the National Debt would virtually end overnight

12 Things That The Mainstream Media Is Being Strangely Quiet About Right Now

As the mainstream media continues to be obsessed with Anthony Weiner and his bizarre adventures on Twitter, much more serious events are happening around the world that are getting very little attention. In America today, if the mainstream media does not cover something it is almost as if it never happened. Right now, the worst nuclear disaster in human history continues to unfold in Japan , U.S. nuclear facilities are being threatened by flood waters, the U.S. military is bombing Yemen, gigantic cracks in the earth are appearing all over the globe and the largest wildfire in Arizona history is causing immense devastation. But Anthony Weiner, Bristol Palin and Miss USA are what the mainstream media want to tell us about and most Americans are buying it.

In times like these, it is more important than ever to think for ourselves. The corporate-owned mainstream media is not interested in looking out for us. Rather, they are going to tell us whatever fits with the agenda that their owners are pushing.

Other items of interest on the list include the NASA warning to their employees to be prepared for an emergency and the FAA's recently declared 40 "no-fly zones" that is unprecedented and perplexing. The point about a North Korean EMP (electro magnetic pulse) weapon is likely to be Internet propaganda intended to incite war.

9/11 and the Orwellian Redefinition of “Conspiracy Theory”

While we were not watching, conspiracy theory has undergone Orwellian redefinition.

A “conspiracy theory” no longer means an event explained by a conspiracy. Instead, it now means any explanation, or even a fact, that is out of step with the government’s explanation and that of its media pimps.

For example, online news broadcasts of RT have been equated with conspiracy theories by the New York Times simply because RT reports news and opinions that the New York Times does not report and the US government does not endorse.

In other words, as truth becomes uncomfortable for government and its Ministry of Propaganda, truth is redefined as conspiracy theory, by which is meant an absurd and laughable explanation that we should ignore.

When piles of carefully researched books, released government documents, and testimony of eye witnesses made it clear that Oswald was not President John F. Kennedy’s assassin, the voluminous research, government documents, and verified testimony was dismissed as “conspiracy theory.”

In other words, the truth of the event was unacceptable to the authorities and to the Ministry of Propaganda that represents the interests of authorities.

The purest example of how Americans are shielded from truth is the media’s (including many Internet sites’) response to the large number of professionals who find the official explanation of September 11, 2001, inconsistent with everything they, as experts, know about physics, chemistry, structural engineering, architecture, fires, structural damage, the piloting of airplanes, the security procedures of the United States, NORAD’s capabilities, air traffic control, airport security, and other matters. These experts, numbering in the thousands, have been shouted down by know-nothings in the media who brand the experts as “conspiracy theorists.”

Another great article from Dr Paul Craig Roberts. I wonder if this is a response to the BBC's recent smear of Russia Today's journalistic standards ?

The Criminal US Government Cover-Up of Fukushima Radiation Fallout in the USA

Mike Rivero of, June 20th, wrote:

Remember what the EPA did when radioactivity from Fukushima started to
exceed the maximum safety limits? They raised the limits and ended daily
monitoring. Then the FDA stopped testing Pacific seafood for radiation.

all of this daily monitoring and testing was supposed to protect us from
a terrorist "dirty bomb" attack, but the total shut down confirms that while the
threat to American food corporations from radiation is very real, the terrorist
"dirty bomb" threat was just another war-starting hoax.

Any jury would recognise the actions here as being criminal in nature. Rather than protecting the population with accurate information about the threat and tips to minimise contamination they instituted a harmful cover-up.

Greek Film Makes Case for Default

"Debtocracy" a 75-minute documentary made for $15K has inflamed popular resistance in Greece by casting the debt crisis in a new light.

Seen on the Internet by over a million Greeks, the film convincingly argues that the debt is a neo-liberal ("Economic Hitman") scam and there are strong precedents for repudiating it.

The brainchild of Costas Lapavitsas, an economist and professor at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, the film introduces the concept of "odious debt" which was used in 2003 by the United States to renounce Saddam Hussein's $120 B debt to Russia and France.

The scam is the same as was faced by many South American countries. The World Bank or IMF grant massive loans to help with "development" projects and then, when the State finds it difficult to pay off the debt, is forced to privatise their assets in order to get better deals- or repayment extensions.

The aim of the game in Greece is to loot their country, placing financial bets upon their downfall and to take control of their nation's assets.

Radiation Hot Spots Found in Tokyo — 3.5 times Limit Set by Japanese Law

Science Magazine reports that Japanese scientists have become so concerned about the health of their children that they have initiated their own radiation monitoring program and made their own maps. The results are shocking.
It shows one wide belt of radiation reaching 225 kilometers south from the stricken reactors to Tokyo and another extending to the southwest. Within those belts are localized hot spots, including an oval that encloses northeast Tokyo and Kashiwa and neighboring cities in Chiba Prefecture.

Radiation in this zone is 0.4 microsieverts per hour, or about 3.5 millisieverts per year. That is a fraction of the radiation found throughout much of Fukushima Prefecture, which surrounds the nuclear power plant. But it is still 10 times background levels and even above the 1-millisievert-per-year limit for ordinary citizens set by Japanese law.

Tokyo Shinburn newspaper reported that many Japanese children have "inexplicable" symptoms. Each symptom described are among the first experienced with radiation sickness.

"Japan is dangerously contaminated by radioactivity over a far larger area than previously reported by TEPCO and the central government according to new reports from multiple sources," the Daily Kos reported.

Fukushima's Apocalyptic Threat

Japan and Germany have had the good survival sense to abandon future reactor construction, and to shut some existing sites.

But here, the corporate media blackout is virtually complete. Out of sight, out of mind seems the strategy for an industry desperate for federal loan guarantees and continued operation of a rickety fleet of decaying old reactors.

The Obama Administration has ended radiation monitoring of seafood in the Pacific. It does not provide reliable, systematic radiological or medical data on fallout coming to the United States.

But we may all be in unprecedented danger.

A national movement is underway to end atomic give-aways and turn to a green-powered Earth.

Now we must also move ALL the world's governments beyond denial to focus on somehow bringing Fukushima under control.

After two months of all-out effort, four reactors and at least that many spent fuel pools remain at risk.

Our survival depends on stopping Fukushima from further irradiating us all.

The world community has come together to put a new sarcophagus around Chernobyl.

A parallel, more urgent effort now needs to focus on Fukushima.

Whatever technical, scientific and material resources are available to our species, that's what needs to go there.


Tens, perhaps hundreds, of millions of people are condemned to die early deaths because of this disaster.

A much bigger world wide effort needs to be undertaken in order to seal the reactors. This is many times worse than Chernobyl.

Top Barack Obama Donors Net Government Jobs

More than two years after Obama took office vowing to banish “special interests” from his administration, nearly 200 of his biggest donors have landed plum government jobs and advisory posts, won federal contracts worth millions of dollars for their business interests or attended numerous elite White House meetings and social events, an investigation by iWatch News has found.

These “bundlers” raised at least $50,000 — and sometimes more than $500,000 — in campaign donations for Obama’s campaign. Many of those in the “Class of 2008” are now being asked to bundle contributions for Obama’s reelection, an effort that could cost $1 billion.

As a candidate, Obama spoke passionately about diminishing the clout of moneyed interests. Kicking off his presidential run on Feb. 10, 2007, he blasted “the cynics, the lobbyists, the special interests,” who had “turned our government into a game only they can afford to play.”

Scientists Predict Rare 'Hibernation' of Sunspots

For years, scientists have been predicting the Sun would by around 2012 move into solar maximum, a period of intense flares and sunspot activity, but lately a curious calm has suggested quite the opposite.

According to three studies released in the United States on Tuesday, experts believe the familiar sunspot cycle may be shutting down and heading toward a pattern of inactivity unseen since the 17th century.

The signs include a missing jet stream, fading spots, and slower activity near the poles, said experts from the National Solar Observatory and Air Force Research Laboratory.
"This is important because the solar cycle causes space weather which affects modern technology and may contribute to climate change," he told reporters.

Experts are now probing whether this period of inactivity could be a second Maunder Minimum, which was a 70-year period when hardly any sunspots were observed between 1645-1715, a period known as the "Little Ice Age."

Arnie Gundersen - Nebraska Nuclear Plant: Emergency Level 4 & Getting Worse

"On June 6, 2011, the Fort Calhoun pressurized water nuclear reactor 20 miles north of Omaha, Nebraska entered emergency status due to imminent flooding from the Missouri River. A day later, there was an electrical fire requiring plant evacuation.

Then, on June 8th, NRC event reports confirmed the fire resulted in the loss of cooling for the reactor's spent fuel pool. The discussion includes specific details of the technical failures at Fort Calhoun, the risks of coolant loss at overcrowded "spent" fuel pools, and the national hazards of nuclear facilities along the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, and other water sites during the current period of floods and climate change."

Nuclear plants are fragile things when put against the forces of nature, especially when they are situated near bodies of water.

Who Won the GOP Debate? The Audience Thought Ron Paul Did

Who won last night's Republican presidential debate on CNN?

It's a question a lot of pundits have been asking -- and there seems to be some consensus forming among the analysts: Former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney and Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.

But judging by the reaction of the audience in New Hampshire, a different candidate carried the night and he's a candidate many analysts are saying emerged as a loser.

That candidate? Congressman Ron Paul of Texas.

An analysis of audience reaction shows Paul was applauded twice as much as any other candidate on stage.

Throughout the two-hour debate, Paul was applauded 11 times. Romney, Bachmann, and former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty were each applauded five times. Former House speaker Newt Gingrich and businessman Herman Cain were each applauded four times. Former Pa. Senator Rick Santorum was applauded the least amount of times: Three.

After a slow start, Paul earned applause throughout the debate, on a variety of issues, including his opposition to "government assistance to private enterprise," his belief that people should be able to "opt out" of Medicare, his views on the separation of church and state, and his opposition to the United States' various wars.,0,419922.story?track=rss

The corporate rulers of America and their lackeys in the media will do almost anything to keep Ron Paul out of the race. The only way this situation can be overcome, at least in part, is by overwhelming public support for the Congressman including mass rallies, phone calls/complaints about his treatment, and a letter campaign to force the issue. There needs to be a revolt against the corrupt system.

From Japan To Seattle People Are Breathing In Virtually Undetectable Hot Radiation Particles

Arnie Gundersen weighs in on what the latest doubling of the estimated amounts of radiation released from the Fukushima nuclear power plant means. Independent scientists he is in contact with tell him people near Fukushima are breathing in 300 to 400 hot particles per day, while people in Tokyo are breathing in 10 hot particles a day. The same tests shows that all the way across the pacific in Seattle, test show people are breathing on average 5 hot particles per day.

He also tells us that the latest radiation estimates from Tepco are based on the assumption that 98% of the radiation at the Fukushima nuclear reactor has still be contained, meaning their estimates show only 2% of the radiation has been released. Personally, I find that hard to believe with explosions at 3 reactors, along with 3 confirmed total meltdowns and 3 confirmed melt throughs.

The radioactive particles are still raining down all over the northern hemisphere. Tens of millions of people are now contaminated.

It seems to me that the authorities have not treated this disaster with enough respect, failing to seal the buildings through any means necessary. The means they are employing look to be the "bury the head in the sand" way whilst doing "ad hoc" repairs. They need to stop the fallout as well as deal with the reactor remains.

The Pentagon and Slave Labor in U.S. Prisons

Prisoners earning 23 cents an hour in U.S. federal prisons are manufacturing high-tech electronic components for Patriot Advanced Capability 3 missiles, launchers for TOW (Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided) anti-tank missiles, and other guided missile systems. A March article by journalist and financial researcher Justin Rohrlich of World in Review is worth a closer look at the full implications of this ominous development. (

The expanding use of prison industries, which pay slave wages, as a way to increase profits for giant military corporations is a frontal attack on the rights of all workers.

Prison labor — with no union protection, overtime pay, vacation days, pensions, benefits, health and safety protection, or Social Security withholding — also makes complex components for McDonnell Douglas/Boeing’s F-15 fighter aircraft, the General Dynamics/Lockheed Martin F-16, and Bell/Textron’s Cobra helicopter. Prison labor produces night-vision goggles, body armor, camouflage uniforms, radio and communication devices, and lighting systems and components for 30-mm to 300-mm battleship anti-aircraft guns, along with land mine sweepers and electro-optical equipment for the BAE Systems Bradley Fighting Vehicle’s laser rangefinder. Prisoners recycle toxic electronic equipment and overhaul military vehicles.

Is this the ultimate economic model for the USA ? The prison gulag system where the three strikes and you're out Law allow for a large long term slave labour force ?

Investigative Reports Documentary on RFK Assassination.

Investigative Reports researched the RFK Assassaination
Show was only played once... then pulled.
76 people in the pantry contradict the official story
RFK's last interview states he will withdraw from Vietnam if elected.
Witness testimony differs from LA police and District Attorney
Sirhan always in front of RFK wounds from behind
Balistics expert lied.

In the final part of this documentary the host mentions that the only other suspect in the murder, a security guard standing behind Kennedy, is unlikely to have been the killer because he passed a polygraph test when questioned about the case in 1994. However, the journalist responsible for providing this "proof" is highly suspect, and further, the physical evidence from the crime scene pretty much rules out anyone else as the shooter.

For info on, Dan Moldea, the journalist responsible for the polygraph test see here:

Ellsberg: All the Crimes Nixon Committed Against Me are Now Legal

Pentagon Papers leaker Daniel Ellsberg said Tuesday that disgraced former Republican President Richard M. Nixon would "admire [President Barack] Obama's boldness" in trying to stifle whistleblowers.

"Richard Nixon, if he were alive today, might take bittersweet satisfaction to know that he was not the last smart president to prolong unjustifiably a senseless, unwinnable war, at great cost in human life," Ellsberg told CNN. "And his aide Henry Kissinger was not the last American official to win an undeserved Nobel Peace Prize."

"He would probably also feel vindicated (and envious) that ALL the crimes he committed against me -- which forced his resignation facing impeachment -- are now legal," he continued.

"That includes burglarizing my former psychoanalyst's office (for material to blackmail me into silence), warrantless wiretapping, using the CIA against an American citizen in the US, and authorizing a White House hit squad to 'incapacitate me totally' (on the steps of the Capitol on May 3, 1971)... But under George W. Bush and Barack Obama, with the PATRIOT Act, the FISA Amendment Act, and (for the hit squad) President Obama's executive orders. [T]hey have all become legal."

FDA Finally Admits Chicken Meat Contains Cancer-Causing Arsenic

After years of sweeping the issue under the rug and hoping no one would notice, the FDA has now finally admitted that chicken meat sold in the USA contains arsenic, a cancer-causing toxic chemical that’s fatal in high doses. But the real story is where this arsenic comes from: It’s added to the chicken feed on purpose!

Even worse, the FDA says its own research shows that the arsenic added to the chicken feed ends up in the chicken meat where it is consumed by humans. So for the last sixty years, American consumers who eat conventional chicken have been swallowing arsenic, a known cancer-causing chemical. (…)

Until this new study, both the poultry industry and the FDA denied that arsenic fed to chickens ended up in their meat. The fairytale excuse story we’ve all been fed for sixty years is that “the arsenic is excreted in the chicken feces.” There’s no scientific basis for making such a claim… it’s just what the poultry industry wanted everybody to believe.

But now the evidence is so undeniable that the manufacturer of the chicken feed product known as Roxarsone has decided to pull the product off the shelves (…).

Can the US Learn from Germany?

As the US economy continues to struggle, should the States should look abroad for ideas on how to get out of the hole? Thom Hartman, host of RT's The Big Picture, says that despite a huge tax burden, Germany's economy is thriving. What can America learn from them? Hartman says that, for starters, Reaganomics must at long last be retired and money, no matter where it comes from, needs to be spent.

The German Government protected their economy and industry and didn't encourage the export of their productive capacities overseas unlike the US. They realised their workers were valuable since they spent money to create demand. They also focused on cutting edge technology and efficiency.

In the US there is a massive problem of high stakes fraud and gambling in the high end of the economy that is sucking wealth out of all other sectors rather than creating it. Just laws are necessary to ensure the protection of citizens from this kind of destructive behaviour. The major problem with the US system is cronyism and corruption with the bailing out and protection of capitalist leaders who are maximising profits for themselves at the expense of the overall economy.

Also the ridiculous bonuses being paid, and laws that encourage the export of jobs overseas, have helped lead to an increase of short term profits at ANY COST. US financial leaders lost sight of the devastating consequences of their actions. Rather than looking out for the longer term whole they looked after themselves at the expense of the whole. Looking after yourself is fine provided you do not cause harm, or great harm, to others, something libertarians in the US should agree with.

This German system juxtaposed to the US free market model is an interesting thing to consider. It is difficult to say which is best except that some level of Government intervention is handy to make sure people play by fair or just rules and that those seriously impoverished can get a hand up when needed. The great experiment continues.

Swiss Banker Unmasks Bilderberg Criminals

Q: Can you tell us something about your involvement in the Swiss banking business?

A: I have worked for Swiss banks for many years. I was designated as one of the top directors of one of the biggest Swiss banks. During my work I was involved in the payment, in the direct payment in cash to a person who killed the president of a foreign country. I was in the meeting where it was decided to give this cash money to the killer. This gave me dramatic headaches and troubled my conscience. It was not the only case that was really bad but it was the worst.

It was a payment instruction on order of a foreign secret service written by hand giving the order to pay a certain amount to a person who killed the top leader of a foreign country. And it was not the only case. We received several such hand written letters coming from foreign secret services giving the order to payout cash from secret accounts to fund revolutions or for the killing of people. I can confirm what John Perkins has written in his book “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man”. There really exists just a system and Swiss banks are involved in such cases.
Q: This is a very startling revelation that you are making. Why do you feel the urge to say this now?

A: Because Bilderberg is meeting in Switzerland. Because the world situation is getting worse and worse. And because the biggest banks in Switzerland are involved in unethical activities. Most of these operations are outside the balance sheet. It is a multiple of what is officially declared. Its not audited and happening without any taxes. The figures involved have a lot of zeros. Its huge amounts.

Q: So its billions?

A: Its much more, its trillions, completely unaudited, illegal and besides the tax system. Basically it’s a robbery of everybody. I mean most normal people are paying taxes and abiding by the laws. What is happening here is complete against our Swiss values, like neutrality, honesty and good faith. In the meetings I was involved in, the discussions where completely against our democratic principles. You see, most of the directors of Swiss banks are not locals anymore, they are foreigners, mostly Anglo-Saxon, either American or British, they don’t respect our neutrality, they don’t respect our values, they are against our direct democracy, they just use the Swiss banks for their illegal means.

They use huge amounts of money created out of nothing and they destroy our society and destroy the people world wide just for greed. They seek power and destroy whole countries, like Greece, Spain, Portugal or Ireland and Switzerland will be one of the last in line. And they use China as working slaves. And a person like Josef Ackermann, who is a Swiss citizen, is the top man at a German bank and he uses his power for greed and does not respect the common people. He has quite a few legal cases in Germany and also now in the States. He is a Bilderberger and does not care about Switzerland or any other country.

We know the Bilderberg group is a real organisation, and here is further confirmation that they are up to no good.

Rather than working to bring about a more prosperous and equitable world these people would destroy it so they can maintain their control. However, if you grant people knowledge and genuine assistance in the third world then you can solve the issues of overpopulation and resource stress - a major concern of these oligarchs. It does not have to be about extermination and pushing for war.

The problem for the Bilderbergers, with this "nice" approach, is that it empowers people and weakens their position. It seems that these people, caught up with their own fetishes and obsessions, lack real imagination.

What If 1500 Architects and Engineers Said U.S. Terror Wars Are Fraudulent ?

By Richard McCampbell [Originally posted at Bushstole04]

If one certified AIA architect or a degreed professional engineer told you that the US terror wars are fraudulent because the three World Trade Center Towers collapsed, not from fire as the gov./media stories claim, but from controlled demolition, as the common sense, overwhelming evidence shows, would you be impressed enough to question the official 9/11 story?

What if a group of 50 architects and engineers came forward to say WTC1 and 2 were designed to withstand the plane impacts? Would 50 experts impress you enough to wonder if the gov./media has lied to you about 9/11?

What if 100 architects and engineers risked their careers by publicly rejecting the official "fire-induced collapse" theory?

How about 500 architects and engineers? Would 500 experts get your attention?

What if the number of architects and engineers demanding a real 9/11 investigation swelled to 1,000? Would 1,000 architects and engineers publicly demanding a real investigation of 9/11 impress you enough to doubt the official gov./media stories about 9/11?

How about more than 1,500 architects and engineers? That is the number currently demanding a real investigation of one of the worst crimes in US history.

See and sign the petition yourself: you don’t have to be an architect or engineer to have common sense.

ONLY the truth about 911 will stop the war on terror ! Experts like these help to confirm to the public the evidence of what really happened.

Expert: Americans will Likely Pay for Fukushima Radiation Deception

In an exclusive interview with Deborah Dupré, the head of a major radiation and public health organization predicted that Americans will pay a high price for government and media cover-up and deception related to Fukushima radiation, such as telling the public that it only trace levels are reported and that these are harmless. Not only Californians are at risk.
The multiple Fukushima nuclear reactor meltdowns have increased radiation in United States air, water and milk, yet last month, the EPA shocked many, including some in the science community, with its announcement that it was shifting reporting radiation levels from every day to every three months according to Mangano, Executive Director of the Radiation and Public Health Project.

The EPA's stated rationale was that radiation levels had fallen after peaking right after the multiple meltdowns in Japan began mid-March.

Officials claimed from the start of the Fukushima meltdowns that the radioactive plume traveling from Japan to the U.S. contained harmless "trace" levels of radiation, but no proof exists for this advisory according to Dupré's interview with expert in the field, Mangano, MPH MBA.

Tiny amounts of radioactive materials ingested and taken up in the body will cause significant harm over a long period of time- often resulting in cancers and death. The danger is real and those who have decided to enact a cover-up have denied people the chance to take preventative actions to decrease their risks of exposure.

No "Shred of Evidence" Iran Building Nukes, Ex-Head of IAEA Says

The former Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency(IAEA) said in a new published report that he had not seen "a shred of evidence" that Iran was "building nuclear-weapons facilities and using enriched materials."

Mohamed ElBaradei, the Nobel Peace Prize recipient who spent 12 years at the IAEA, told investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, "I don't believe Iran is a clear and present danger. All I see is the hype about the threat posed by Iran."

Hersh points out that the last two U.S. National Intelligence Estimates (N.I.E.s) on Iranian nuclear progress "have stated that there is no conclusive evidence that Iran has made any effort to build the bomb since 2003."

The Iranian leadership has no cause to instigate conflict with anyone. They realise that such actions will lead to US bombing of their nation- something they want to avoid. Furthermore, the Iranians could have meddled in Iraq but did not, other than to provide some political support.

The Iranian Government is not a threat to world peace no matter what the propagandists have said.

Hackers got Hacked: One in Four Online Criminals in the U.S. 'is an FBI Informer'

One in four computer hackers is secretly working for the FBI and U.S. secret service to inform on their peers, it has been claimed.

By threatening long prison sentences, officers have managed successfully to infiltrate communities of the online criminals, recruiting a huge number of informants.

The moles, who are already embedded deep inside the hacking community, are then reporting back to the FBI about large-scale identity fraud in an attempt to earn themselves softer sentences.

Some major illegal forums where hackers sell stolen credit card details and forged identities are even being run by the FBI moles, it has been claimed.

And the FBI will let things run to suit whatever agendas they want with arrests here and there from time to time. The same principle applies to terrorist networks run by intelligence agencies since being a player in the terror game allows you to do whatever you want.

Yes, there are real hackers and fundamentalists, but ultimately their role in providing an opposition to the State serves to bolster the State security services. So, why stop all your enemies if you want keep a certain level of control over a population ? Anyone who knows about the novel 1984 and the real or imagined threat of "Emmanuel Goldstein" will recognise the paradigm.

Note: A massive and destructive hacking campaign, facilitated by the authorities, will allow them to enact stricter controls over the Internet. At present the Net remains a bastion of free speech and ideas.

Report Finds Regulators Knew Monsanto's Roundup Caused Birth Defects

Industry regulators have known for years that Roundup, the world's best-selling herbicide produced by U.S. company Monsanto, causes birth defects, according to a new report released Tuesday.

The report, "Roundup and birth defects: Is the public being kept in the dark?" found regulators knew as long ago as 1980 that glyphosate, the chemical on which Roundup is based, can cause birth defects in laboratory animals.

But despite such warnings, and although the European Commission has known that glyphosate causes malformations since at least 2002, the information was not made public.

Instead regulators misled the public about glyphosate's safety, according to the report, and as recently as last year, the German Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety, the German government body dealing with the glyphosate review, told the European Commission that there was no evidence glyphosate causes birth defects.

CIA’s Bin Laden Hunter Ordered to Stand Down 10 Times

Scheuer told the Telegraph that following the missed opportunities to kill or capture bin Laden in 1998, there were at least eight other chances to get the terror mastermind. By that point, bin Laden was supposedly among the U.S. government’s most wanted criminals. But for some unknown reason, senior officials refused to authorize his capture or assassination.

“One 50-cent round could have put us all out of our agony,” Scheuer explained. But that didn’t happen, as high-level authorities consistently ordered the CIA unit not to stop bin Laden.

In 1999, Scheuer told the paper that he sent an angry letter to higher-ups demanding to know why his men were risking their lives for somebody the U.S. government did not seem to want stopped. “I don’t know what you are doing when you talk to the President but he will not get a better opportunity than this,” Scheuer explained to his superiors.

I don't fully trust Scheuer but the reason higher ups were protecting Osama Bin Laden was because he was an intelligence asset as revealed by FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds.

RECAP: Shut Down The Derivatives Markets To Save Civilization

By John Hoefle

"It is time to break the silence on derivatives," Lyndon LaRouche said yesterday, after observing the carnage in the financial system and the pathetic response from the so-called regulators. "The true, hyperinflationary factor in the situation is the unregulated, insanely leveraged derivatives trade. This is what is killing us. This is the great crime of Alan Greenspan."

LaRouche described the derivatives market as a "hyperinflationary bomb, crushing the international financial system," warning that "Until you just shut down the whole derivatives trade--wipe these gambling obligations off the books of the financial system--you are just kidding yourself."

"Unless and until you deal with this derivatives bubble, which cannot be bailed out, you are just kidding yourself," he continued. "It is time for Hank Paulson to swallow the only real medicine: bankruptcy reorganization of the entire, dollar-based financial system. And the first step in any such bankruptcy reorganization would be the cancellation of these quadrillions of dollars in pure gambling obligations. Without such action, this planet is doomed to a horrible dark age, just like the dark age of the fourteenth century, that followed the collapse of the Lombard banking system."

Blood In The Streets

You don't have to be a financial insider to see that the entire global financial system is collapsing, since that collapse is now front-page news every day. The Bush Administration, its co-conspirators in Congress, and the Federal Reserve have passed the largest financial bailout scheme in history, and the Fed and the Treasury are cooking up new bailout facilities and increasing the money available in existing facilities on practically a daily basis. The stock markets are plunging, with the Dow Jones Industrial Index down 40 percent in a year, and dropping like a rock. The banks, particularly in the U.S. and Europe, are vaporizing faster than most people would have thought possible a year ago, with governments in most major European countries belatedly taking steps to prop up the banks and stop runs by protecting deposits. Yet despite it all, the crisis deepens by the day.

The carnage is becoming increasingly more visible in the daily lives of our citizens, as the effects of demise of the securities market "debt machine" wipes out the credit most Americans had come to depend upon, in their households and workplaces. Banks are cutting back on credit-card limits and other consumer loans; mortgages are harder to come by, cash-out refinancings and home equity lines of credit are drying up as home prices fall; and businesses are finding it harder and harder to sell new debt in the bond, commercial paper and other corporate debt markets. For an economy which is dependent upon debt, and already in hock up to its eyeballs, these are ominous developments. The fabric of society is breaking down, and the blood in the streets is spreading.

Deadly Derivatives

The chief financial factor in this carnage is the world's largest casino, the derivatives market. The derivatives market is far larger than the world's stock and bond markets combined, with bets in the quadrillions of dollars compared to the trillions of stocks and bonds. While it is impossible to put an exact number to the size of the overall derivatives market, given its unregulated operations and the way most derivatives deals are privately negotiated, it is possible to put a number to the value of the derivatives bets outstanding, and that number is zero.

Derivatives were the great financial innovation of the Greenspan era, a form of sleight of hand designed to hide the bankruptcy of the financial system after the stock market crash of 1987, the collapse of the savings and loan sector, the bankruptcy of the banking system as a whole, and the collapse of the junk-bond bubble. The derivatives market was a fraud from its inception, a virtual market where the big banks and other speculators could bet on the movements of currencies, bonds, stocks and the indices associated with them. Because the derivatives did not require the ownership of the instruments upon which they were nominally based, the level of bets soon outstripped the levels of the underlying instruments, with, for example, far more derivatives bets on bonds than there were actual bonds.

The derivatives market also employed high degrees of leverage, placing bets with borrowed money. Using leverage, the speculators could place far larger bets than they could were they limited to their own money. This leverage was highly profitable--at least virtually--as long as the game was expanding, but turned deadly when the music stopped. The, reverse leverage set in, and the players began losing not only their bets but the money they borrowed to place those bets. This reverse leverage made it possible for the gamblers to lose multiples of the money they put in, before the loans.

Another innovation that was highly "profitable" before it blew up was the market for credit derivatives (a.k.a., credit default swaps, or CDS), a form of insurance policy for bonds and derivatives bets. While the derivatives market was in full swing, banks, insurance companies and other financial firms sold trillions of dollars of credit derivatives to guarantee the value of a wide range of securities. The credit derivatives were a fig leaf, a necessary part of the derivatives scam. The derivatives sellers, for example, routinely created triple-A rated mortgage-backed securities and collateralized debt obligations out of pools of subprime debt, and through the use of credit derivatives, were able to sell such triple-A rated junk to pension funds and other buyers who had a fiduciary obligation to buy only high-quality securities. Without the fig leaf of credit derivatives, this scam would not have been possible, nor would all the losses which followed.

The obvious point is that, in any widespread securities crisis, the credit derivatives sellers would never be able to cover the insurance they wrote. A.I.G., for example, wrote hundreds of billions of dollars of credit derivatives, including a substantial amount based upon securities issued by Lehman Brothers. When Lehman failed, so did A.I.G., which has now received some $120 billion in emergency loans from the Fed.

The settlement date for credit derivatives written on Lehman securities was Oct. 10, at which point the Lehman securities were valued, optimistically, at just 8.6-cents per dollar of face value. This will be the largest payout ever for the credit derivatives market, assuming the sellers can afford the payments.

Shut It Down

The attempt to save the fictitious "values" and "profits" of the derivatives market is one of the prime drivers of the largest bailout attempt in history. We stress attempt, because the bailout is not working, and can not work--there isn't enough money in the world to cover all these funny-money bets, and the efforts by the central banks to print that money, is fueling a hyperinflationary bomb which will wipe out not only the remnants of financial system, but also the governments, national economies and the means of existence for most of the world's population.

It is therefore essential that the bailout of the derivatives bubble be stopped, immediately. All derivatives trades should be declared null and void, and wiped off the books of the speculators. Any financial instrument containing a derivative should also be declared null and void, and wiped off the books. This unregulated, insanely leveraged casino should be shut down, and all claims arising from derivatives bets nullified, as if the bets had never occurred.

There can be no compromise on this. Shut it down, and shut it down now. Your life, and the nation, depends upon it.

Derivatives must be abolished, the contracts made null and void. The global economic system needs to come back to reality. No more gambling with highly leveraged debt.

Japan Finally Admits TOTAL Meltdown at 3 Nuclear Reactors Within Hours of Earthquake, More Than DOUBLES Estimate of Radiation Released After Accident

For months, Tepco and Japanese officials refused to admit that there had been any meltdowns at Fukushima.

Then they said there were meltdowns at reactors 1, 2 and 3 … but they might have only been partial meltdowns.

Finally, today, they admitted the obvious: there were total meltdowns at all 3 reactors.

The situation here is worse than Chernobyl and there is a huge problem in accepting this reality. All the resources of the state should have been mobilised to try to contain the situation and yet this did not happen.

Fake al-Qaeda: Adam Gadahn & Yousef Al Khattab PLUS Anwar Al Awlaki

The following videos are posted in light of recent media claims about the threat of "Al Qaeda" in Yemen:

In relation to the Al Awlaki video, one would have to guess that the reason he made an "FBI authorised" visit to the US in October 2002 is because this man is an intelligence asset. Individuals who have certain sorts of criminal records, such as this man, can be manipulated/extorted more easily than others.

Al Awlaki is linked to three domestic attacks in the video- the Fort Hood shootings, the underwear bomber, and the Christmas tree bomber- the latter two incidents being almost certainly intelligence operations (see here and here). The claims made about his connection to the Fort Hood shootings must also be suspect.

Note: We should not believe anything the authorities claim about terrorist connections because they have been caught lying about the nature of such threats time and time again:

Final note: Al Awlaki has been also been reported dead, killed in 2009 by a US air strike.

Nevertheless, dead or alive, his name is apparently being used as an "intelligence ghost mastermind" to help push the Al Qaeda fable.

They go on to state that apparently 42 cases were reported in Ireland this year. Of these, 8 were too young for ‘vaccination’ with ‘almost half’ of the remainder of cases, ‘almost’ half of 34, in children who were ‘unvaccinated’ with the MMR ‘vaccine’

Look, I'm not totally against vaccinations but this is crazy. We saw similar results in another study where the population of one Canadian town, that was vaccinated against the flu, became substantially sicker during the influenza season than other towns that had not been subjected to any vaccinations.

New Paperback Demolishes Official WTC Story

A book soon to be released, 9/11: The Simple Facts: Why the Official Story Can't Possibly Be True, could be a real game-changer by getting the WTC explosive evidence out to a wider audience. It is a concise 100-page compilation of the facts and evidence (with occasional sparks of humor) written in common-sense language understandable by almost anyone. It asks the reader to just look at the facts. 9/11: The Simple Facts, written by Arthur Naiman with assistance from AE911Truth Writing Team Leader Gregg Roberts along with founder Richard Gage, AIA, and volunteers, is part of the Real Story Series published by Soft Skull Press. It will be available in the AE911Truth store in mid-July and can be pre-ordered now.

The book begins by addressing the phrase “conspiracy theory” and places the official version of 9/11 events squarely in that category. It documents the five official investigations conducted between 2002 and 2008, all of which left many unanswered questions. Some of these questions would have naturally been raised by almost anyone who has seen original telecasts or later video recordings of the destruction of any of the three WTC high-rises. But this revealing visual evidence was ignored in all of the official investigations.

The book outlines 14 key problems with the official explanation of how the three WTC buildings were destroyed. It begins with the very explosive destruction of the Twin Towers covering the rate of fall of the top sections, the pulverization and lateral ejections, the missing floors, the explosive squibs, pools of molten steel/iron found in the debris pile, and the previously molten iron microspheres and red/gray chips of nanothermite found in the WTC dust. The free-fall of 47-story WTC 7 is covered in depth, as is the other supporting evidence for the classic controlled demolition of that third skyscraper.

This book, set for release in July, should be gold. It's only $12 and appears to communicate the key information very simply.

The problem with 911 truth has NEVER been the information itself but the troubles found in communicating it to the public. We live in a world full of of sound bites, censorship, ridicule and trivial distractions such that complicated and confronting issues often get short thrift.

Education is the key to change.

And remember, the truth about 911 will ultimately end the War on Terror.
