UK terrorists plan new 9/11 attack on US?

American spy chiefs believe a British-born Pakistani extremist entering the United States under the Visa Waiver Program is likely to be the source of another 9/11-style attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Amazing how they always know enough detail to shout out these booga booga warnings ("Remember, when you hear the big bang, think 'Pakistan!'") but never seem able to actually find these supposed terrorists before they terrorize!

Of course, the obvious answer is that this British-born Pakistani extremist WORKS for the American spy chiefs, to help scare you into war in Pakistan.

Rendition case in S.F. to test Obama policies

The public is likely to get its first close look at the Obama administration's policies on torture, secrecy and prisoners' rights in a San Francisco courtroom today, when federal judges press a government lawyer for a position on the practice known as extraordinary rendition.

Five men - one now imprisoned in Egypt, one in Morocco, one at Guantanamo Bay and two who have been released without charges - are asking the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reinstate a lawsuit that accuses a San Jose flight-planning company of helping the CIA transport them to overseas dungeons for interrogation and torture.

Torture is a crime and Holder will prosecute President Bush and other officials for condoning it. Republicans should have jumped on his comments and opposed Holder's nomination for these dangerous views on what constitutes torture in the fight against terrorism.

Republicans tried to pressure Mr. Holder to promise not to prosecute, but he clearly refused saying, "No one is above the law." By "no one,” he meant President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Alberto Gonzales and any other top Bush administration officials who authorized waterboarding.

There Are No Christians in Foxholes

It is an old adage that there are no atheists in foxholes. The idea plays well for theists who believe that in times of extreme pressure people will put their fate in God’s hands and fence sitters and atheists will join in prayer as a means of self preservation. Atheist soldiers have protested this charge and there are websites dedicated to atheists in foxholes. The reality of war, though, is that there are no Christians in foxholes.

Google is watching

'THERE was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment . . . It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time."

That quote from George Orwell's "1984" becomes increasingly prescient in light of developments in eavesdropping, pioneered by Google. Recently the company launched a service called Latitude, which allows consenting users to monitor each other's whereabouts. It's the company's latest snooping tool, the most controversial being the Street Views photographic mapping service.

When I tried Street Views by entering my address, I was surprised to see that with a single click a truly Orwellian image popped onto the screen: my house, my car, the newspaper in the driveway.

Some Tenants Face an Unfamiliar Squeeze on Their Pocketbooks: An Electric Bill

New York Times Online | Sun- Feb 8, 2009 | MANNY FERNANDEZ

Like other New York City renters, tenants at a large apartment complex on Roosevelt Island grew so accustomed to one perk that they tended to overlook it: They never paid separately for electricity because it was included in the rent.

But that is set to change. Residents of the 1,003-unit complex, formerly known as Eastwood and now called Roosevelt Landings, will receive electricity bills for the first time in April.

Missy Feliciano, 39, who lives in a four-bedroom unit with her mother and three children, was stunned by her bill: $815.51

Wilson blocks climate change ad

Northern Ireland's Environment Minister Sammy Wilson has blocked a government advertisement campaign on climate change. The advertisements urged people to reduce energy consumption and cut carbon dioxide output.

Mr Wilson said the Scottish executive had objected to the advertisements and stopped them being broadcast. He said the adverts were part of an "insidious propaganda campaign" which would not be imposed on people in NI.

Mr Wilson said they were "giving people the impression that by turning off the standby light on their TV they could save the world from melting glaciers and being submerged in 40ft of water".

He said that was "patent nonsense".

Reporters Without Borders and Washington's Coups

British press baron Lord Northcliff said, "News is something that someone, somewhere wants to keep secret, everything else is advertising." If this is true, then U.S. government funding of Reporters Without Borders must be news, because the organization and its friends in Washington have gone to extraordinary lengths to cover it up. In spite of 14 months of stonewalling by the National Endowment for Democracy over a Freedom of Information Act request and a flat denial from RSF executive director Lucie Morillon, the NED has revealed that Reporters Without Borders received grants over at least three years from the International Republican Institute.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For the record, WhatReallyHappened has received no grants whatsoever to operate. We survive on private donations and advertisers.

Nazis developed Thalidomide and tested it on concentration camp prisoners, author claims

The claim could have implications for the compensation of surviving victims, including 457 in the UK, if the German government is held liable for their condition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ooooh let's wave NAZIS at everyone one more time (and make a few bucks in the process).

As this article openly admits, a German company named Grünenthal owns the patent on Thalidomide, but Grünenthal did not exist until after the war was over. Moreover, any and all patentable technologies were looted via operation paperclip, and handed to allied companies as war booty.

Blaming the Nazis means more lawsuits for "compensation" and "reparations."

But before you all start spending that money, kindly explain why no stories of a rash of malformed children have ever been told by the survivors of the slave labor camps? Or that the Nazis, even if they did invent Thalidomide, did so with intent to cause harm.

Or why present day Germans, who were mostly not even alive during the first half of the last Century, bear any responsibility.

Holocaust denier cleric refuses to recant views

THE British bishop who questions the Holocaust has defied the Pope's demand for him to recant his views.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It should be obvious to any objective observer that this debate has totally abandoned any pretext of reality and has degenerated into a contest of who can bludgeon whom into believing as they are told to believe.

Notice that none of the defenders of the orthodoxy suggest the obvious step of an objective assessment of the available factual data; the chemical tests of the surviving buildings, DNA tests on the soap and lampshades, new ground penetrating radar scans not only of Treblinka but every other site claimed to hold mass graves, DNA tests on the remains of victims in the Ukraine mass graves to determine of they really are Jews or executed Russians.

It's always about clubbing those who question into submission.

Without censure, a growing current in Israeli politics is calling for the outright killing of Palestinians

Many Israeli intellectuals dub Lieberman as the secular equivalent of Meir Kahana, the slain founder of the Kach terrorist group who advocated genocidal ethnic cleansing of non-Jews in Israel-Palestine. Kahana was assassinated in Manhattan, New York, in 1990 shortly after giving a speech in which he called for the annihilation and expulsion of Palestinians from "the Land of Israel".

So, what the world agreed was wrong for Germany to do to Poland and France, is suddenly okay for Israel to do to Palestine?

Because there is no point to bulldozing farms if the objective is to stop rocket attacks.

Bishop defends right to question Holocaust

British Bishop Richard Williamson says his research compels him to avoid resorting to "emotions" on his questions regarding the Holocaust.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is no such thing as knowledge which is above question or re-examination. We all have a right, and in the aftermath of the Iraq "nookular bombs" lies, a moral duty, to question everything we are told that serves a political agenda.

Truth needs no law to support it. Truth is self-evident to all. Truth withstands re-examination. Truth survives questions. Throughout history, from Bruno to Galileo to Zundel, only lies and liars have resorted to the courts to enforce adherence to dogma.

We do not jail people who think Elvis is still alive. We do not wreck the careers of people who claim to have been taken for rides in UFOs. We respect the First Amendment rights of those who choose to believe in the Loch Ness Monster and Big Foot.

Only in this one area of inquiry is the full weight of government and the courts brought to bear to ensure that no questions ever dare be asked.

Why are they so terrified of a question?

What are they so afraid of?

Cop Guilty of Kidnapping and Robbing Dealers, Reselling Drugs

The evidence at trial showed that from November 2003 through April 2006, Sease conspired with other Memphis police officers to use their authority as law enforcement officers, including their service weapons, to rob suspected drug dealers of cash, cocaine and marijuana. Sease and his co-conspirators would then resell the stolen drugs for their own profit. The government introduced proof of 16 separate robberies, as well as one attempted robbery. In each robbery, Sease or another uniformed Memphis police officer, would pull over a car containing suspected drug dealers and steal whatever drugs and cash that they found.

Democrat senator Debbie Stabenow has told nationally syndicated talk host Bill Press she will push for talk radio “accountability hearings” in order to impose government-mandated “balance” in the radio marketplace.

The rise and (almost) fall of America's banks

The government is expected to announce Monday a plan that analysts expect will include lifting soured mortgage assets off selected banks' books, possibly along with guarantees against other losses and maybe more direct injections of cash.

Financial industry experts say it is a matter of choosing the best of several options, none of them very palatable.

And no one knows for sure what will work because nothing like this has happened in living memory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I can tell you exactly what will happen.

The banks will get your money and you will get the banks' debts!

The fact is that the US financial system is fundamentally flawed in that the moment the Federal Reserve started issuing debt-based notes, more money is owed to the bank than is actually in existence. The system works only so long as new borrowers can be found to allow creation of new paper money which is used to pay the older interest debts. When people stop borrowing, as they did when the US Government handed tax credits top corporations to send US jobs to other countries, then the whole pyramid scheme starts to collapse, which is what is happening now.

What the bailouts amount to is the government borrowing ON Y0UR BEHALF (AND WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION), to create the new money to cover the current outstanding debts by the banks.

But it is not a permanent solution. In fact, it will make the eventual crash far worse, because there is interest owed on the money 'Obushma' has borrowed for the bailouts, and the money to cover that interest doesn't exist!

About all the bailouts are doing is clearing up the books at the financial institutions by dumping that toxic debt on YOU!

The FRANKLIN SCANDAL

The FRANKLIN SCANDAL is the story of a nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. The ring’s pimps were a pair of Republican powerbrokers who used Boys Town as a pedophiliac reservoir, had access to the highest levels of our government, and connections to the CIA.

Nebraska legislators nearly exposed the ring in 1990, but its unveiling had the potential to produce seismic political aftershocks: a rash of deaths and a full court press by federal and local law enforcement effected an immaculate cover-up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This video was scheduled to air on The Discovery Channel, but members of Congress threatened tough new laws controlling the cable TV industry if it aired, and the video was pulled even though it was already listed in the TV Guide. All release copies were destroyed. The video you see here was an editor's copy of the rough cut.

Abandoning Torture But What About War?

If we can move beyond torture, do we not have a responsibility also to think for a moment about the obvious fact that torture is not the cruelest thing we do? Torture offends us, in part, because the torturer is not at risk, but neither are most pilots dropping bombs. And how exactly does the risk taken by ground troops mitigate the suffering of those they wound, kill, and terrorize? Hanging someone by the wrists offends us, and yet we might rather have it done to us than be kept in 23-hours-a-day isolation for a decade, a practice that is part of our accepted justice system. Clearly our morality is a scrambled hodge-podge of reactions that could use some improvement.

Geithner Says U.S. Financial System Remains 'Badly Damanged'

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner warned U.S. House Democrats on Saturday that the U.S. financial system remains "badly damaged," but that the Obama administration planned to act both quickly and aggressively to deal with the crisis, according to one lawmaker present.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the usual placation statement from a politician.

The fact is that the US financial system is fundamentally flawed in that the moment the Federal Reserve started issuing debt-based notes, more money is owed to the bank than is actually in existence. The system works only so long as new borrowers can be found to allow creation of new paper money which is used to pay the older interest debts. When people stop borrowing, as they did when the US Government handed tax credits top corporations to send US jobs to other countries, then the whole pyramid scheme starts to collapse, which is what is happening now.

What the bailouts amount to is the government borrowing ON Y0UR BEHALF (AND WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION), to create the new money to cover the current outstanding debts by the banks.

But it is not a permanent solution. In fact, it will make the eventual crash far worse, because there is interest owed on the money 'Obushma' has borrowed for the bailouts, and the money to cover that interest doesn't exist!

About all the bailouts are doing is clearing up the books at the financial institutions by dumping that toxic debt on YOU!

REHABILITATING HITLER … IN ISRAEL

Many Israeli intellectuals dub Lieberman as the secular equivalent of Meir Kahana, the slain founder of the Kach terrorist group who advocated genocidal ethnic cleansing of non-Jews in Israel-Palestine. Kahana was assassinated in Manhattan, New York, in 1990 shortly after giving a speech in which he called for the annihilation and expulsion of Palestinians from “the Land of Israel”.

Endless war

Do you know that Israel has 200 U.S.-financed nuclear weapons, that it broke the prior successful cease-fire (not Palestine) and has long held a medieval siege vs. Gaza? Do you know how much money AIPAC donates to Congress, and that suicide is the No. 1 killer in the Israeli army and that 18 U.S. veterans commit suicide daily?

We cannot afford endless war financially or morally.

Hidden cost of unemployment benefits

Steve Lippe is a calm, cool sort. After getting sacked, he had the presence of mind to read the fine print about the fees associated with his new Pennsylvania unemployment debit card.

Yes, fees. Fees to withdraw unemployment benefits. Fees to transfer. Fees to learn that besides being out of work, you're broke.

"Who," he asked, "is making all this money off the unemployed?"

This illustrates one of the dangers of globalism. Europe is united under one government, and Phony Tony "Dodgy Dossier" Blair is aimed at the top slot?

Europe will REALLY start rioting if that happens!

Obama demands speed on stimulus

Obama demands speed on stimulus

Senators continued to spar over the price tag as they debated the package in a rare Saturday session.

Republican Senator Jeff Sessions said it would cost some $40 billion a year just to service the additional debt that resulted from the spending portions of the bill.

"How big is $40 billion? That's the annual road budget, the annual highway budget for the United States of America. That's a lot of money," Sessions said.

Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter predicted the bill would pass the Senate vote with his support and that of at least two other Republicans -- Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine.

It's More or Less Official: We're In a Global Depression

The IMF has also performed a complete audit of the whole US financial system, and therefore has a clearer idea of American finances than just about any other organization.

So the fact that the head of the IMF is saying that the world's advanced economies are already in a depression carries great weight.

Khazaria—The Myth of Anti-Semitism Exposed at Last!!

"This was written before the full extent of the holocaust was known, but that does not alter the fact that the large majority of surviving Jews in the world is of Eastern European - and thus perhaps mainly of Khazar - origin. If so, this would mean that their ancestors came not from the Jordan but from the Volga, not from Canaan but from the Caucasus, once believed to be the cradle of the Aryan race; and that genetically they are more closely related to the Hun, Uigur and Magyar tribes than to the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Should this turn out to be the case, then the term "anti-Semitism" would become void of meaning, based on a misapprehension shared by both the killers and their victims.
