Dark Nukes at the WTC

Following up on this post, after consultation with the Anonymous Physicist, I think it is reasonable to propose that highly specialized micro/mini-nukes were used at the WTC, that were geared for high destructive power but low light emission and relatively low radiation emission. Thus "dark nukes". As AP has pointed out, nukes can be designed for different types of outputs. Probably most people have heard of neutron bombs, which are really nukes designed to produce more flash and radiation in order to kill living things and not harm structures. Conversely, it is reasonable to propose that a "dark nuke" can be engineered that has more destructive power and less visible light and radiation. Indeed, such a thing was in development decades ago for use in large excavation projects.

Thus, there is likely no conflict with the lack of an apparent large flash at the WTC, given this likely technology of a dark nuke, plus the underground nuke video I linked to below, plus the fact that we can't rule out video masking to hide some flashes and other tricks the PTB could have used to hide their dirty work.

Now, let's do what we can to spread the word and actually effect some change!

Vaccines Becoming Big Money makers

Interesting though not surprising:
Malaria. Tuberculosis. Alzheimer's disease. AIDS. Pandemic flu. Genital herpes. Urinary tract infections. Grass allergies. Traveler's diarrhea. You name it, the pharmaceutical industry is working on a vaccine to prevent it.

Many could be on the market in five years or less.

Contrast that with five years ago, when so many companies had abandoned the vaccine business that half the U.S. supply of flu shots was lost because of factory contamination at one of the two manufacturers left.

Vaccines are no longer a sleepy, low-profit niche in a booming drug industry. Today, they're starting to give ailing pharmaceutical makers a shot in the arm.

The lure of big profits, advances in technology and growing government support has been drawing in new companies, from nascent biotechs to Johnson & Johnson. That means recent remarkable strides in overcoming dreaded diseases and annoying afflictions likely will continue.

"Even if a small portion of everything that's going on now is successful in the next 10 years, you put that together with the last 10 years (and) it's going to be characterized as a golden era," says Emilio Emini, Pfizer Inc.'s head of vaccine research.

Vaccines now are viewed as a crucial path to growth, as drugmakers look for ways to bolster slowing prescription medicine sales amid intensifying generic competition and government pressure to cut down prices under the federal health overhaul.
With so much money at stake, it is guaranteed there will be even newer (engineered) diseases appearing.

WTC Disintegration

It's worth reviewing what exactly what parts of two 110 story towers apparently disintegrated during the demolition of the towers:

1) hundreds of core columns

2) essentially all furniture, computers, doors, doorknobs, phones and filing cabinets in the towers (see here and here and here)

3) over a thousand bathroom sinks and toilets

4) over eleven hundred people

Certainly, much of the towers fell down into a huge pile of rubble and debris at Ground Zero-- a pile that was extremely hot in places because of the China Syndrome reaction.

However, it still is remarkable how MUCH was disintegrated, primarily due to the nuclear demolition that took place.

The Problem with Mini-Nukes at the WTC

As Anonymous Physicist and I have written about extensively (AP should be given credit for the key insights), the best explanation for what happened at the WTC on 9/11 is a nuclear demolition.

There's no question that the official collapse mechanism is complete bunk-- which clearly means there was some sort of demolition of the towers. Conventional explosives are ruled out, due to the simple fact that the destruction was too extreme for normally placed demolition explosives, and it is very unlikely that enough conventional charges could be placed in the towers without detection. Thermite, or nano-thermite, suffers from the same flaw-- actually even more so, since thermitic agents have even less explosive power than conventional demolition. Beam weapons have some appeal as being able to explain the WTC destruction phenomenon, but only because beam weapons propose an unknown technology. The major problem with beam weapons being used at the WTC is the fact that so much energy was required for the demolition, and it is nearly impossible to imagine this energy being transmitted through the air, all in a matter of seconds. Further, the towers looked to be blowing up from WITHIN, not from without-- particularly given how the sequences started for both towers. Small nuclear bombs fits the scenario extremely well-- the extreme efficiency and power of the destruction, the apparent vaporization of the building contents and people, as well as the phenomenon of the extremely hot rubble pile for months.

But still... even nuclear demolition has a problem. The problem is this: for much of the WTC demolition, there are no obvious fireballs or extremely large, bright flashes that would be expected for the detonation of many small nukes. Generally I have said the nukes went off deep in the center of the towers, and the flashes were shielded by the resulting debris. The problem however, I think, is that any nuke or set of nukes that were powerful enough to vaporize so much inside the towers-- and we know there was vaporization-- would have been large enough to produce a significant large flash.

What we do see is:
1) large clouds of debris/dust ejected ahead of the demolition waves and then thick volcanic clouds subsequent to the tower coming apart
2) a very large fireball at the onset of the WTC1 demolition, at the "collapse" point
3) a few small bright flashes in the tower just prior to the WTC2 demolition, near subsequent breakpoints
4) a significant amount of dripping molten material in the tower just prior to the WTC2 demolition, near subsequent breakpoints
5) many many very small bright flashes in the dust clouds during WTC1 demolition

My feeling has long been that some sort of mechanism essentially turned the insides of the towers to complete mush before the "collapse" phase. Essentially, we see the top of the towers plowing down, as if through water, driving up the lower portions of the tower in massive waves.

How to explain this?

I have no friggin' idea! All I can do is invoke an unknown technology. But I don't think a "beam weapon" can account for the destruction at all.

One possibility is that there were some medium and small and micro nukes, associated with the bright flashes described-- that account for some of the destruction and the then the China Syndrome-- but that there was some other key mechanism involved in disintegrating the towers. What could this other mechanism be? A special type of nuclear explosive device that doesn't produce visible light, perhaps? One that also produces relatively little radiation?

Simon Shack Has an Agenda

From an email:
I seem to have gotten "suspended" from the new Reality Shack/September Clues website. No real loss because the problems with the research there have become more evident -- and the fact that I was pointing that out needless to say didn't sit well.

I began to look also into the victims in my area -- 5 actually grew up in my town. Another 7, either living here or in nearby towns. Also, a good number of them worked for Canter Fitzgerald. At any rate, I had found four who went to the Westfield High School and it just happened that my library had put the yearbooks online - as well as our town paper. The yearbooks go back to '29 and the Westfield Leader to '02! It's the kind of small town paper where you can find info on people from kindergarden to Junior High honor role and high school graduations. And, being in town, I was able to physically inspect most of the yearbooks. Only a handful of them aren't in the library.

At any rate, I didn't want to post the info at September Clues because it would make clear exactly where I live. So I passed the info on to Simon. At least on three of them. As I went to send info in on the last one, I realized I was "suspended."

But this is all 100% verifiable info that these people were REAL.
I was hoping that they weren't, actually.

"2012": The Movie

It sucked more than I thought it would. It had its moments, especially early on, but it was basically a disappointment. I didn't even see a "33" in it. The graphics were pretty cool-- massive scenes of destruction-- but the action scenes were way over the top. Way too many scenes of ridiculous close-calls. The worst part was the last half hour, which was like a lame remake of the "Poseidon Adventure". Overall I thought their would be more of a conspiracy angle, but the destruction of the earth revolved simply around too much solar activity because of an alignment of the planets. The rest of the movie was about who would survive and how.

Speaking of which:

Heroin Addicts Pressure President To Stay Course In Afghanistan

LOS ANGELES—As the White House considers sweeping strategic shifts in the war in Afghanistan, heroin addicts across the nation called on President Obama Monday to stick with the current U.S. policy, which has flooded the world market with low-price narcotics. "There's no need to change nothing, Joe Biden," said addict Reginald "Bones" Dillow, who, when conscious, is an outspoken proponent of the U.S. military strategy that has resulted in a nearly 40-fold increase in Afghan opium production since the end of Taliban rule in 2001. "Everything is so cheap—it's all totally fine like it is, right? Over there, I mean. Why would you want to…do the…[garbled]." Obama is reportedly looking into economic incentives that would both persuade poor Afghans to cease opium cultivation and benefit chemically dependent Americans, the most promising of which involves constructing facilities in the war-torn country for the manufacture of methadone.

Of course, there's this too:

What's the Deal with Trying KSM in US Court?

It would be nice if this was about actual justice. But the outcome of a KSM trial seems to be pre-ordained. It would be nice if this was at least about showing the standard US legal system can handle a "high-profile terrorist" trial, but the Obama administration has a multi-tiered justice system for Gitmo detainees-- with some getting US court trials, some getting military tribunals, and others being held indefinitely without trial (an insanely disgusting concept).

So why on earth give a real court trial to KSM-- officially the biggest fish relating to 9/11?

It makes almost no sense.

The only possible rationales I can think of are:
1) this is some convoluted way to get at the truth of 9/11 by the administration (not likely!)
2) this is simply to piss off Republicans and create a distraction (doesn't seem likely as Obama has shown little desire to really anger conservatives -- rather he has kowtowed to them a fair amount)
3) this is some convoluted way to stage another terror attack on NYC (possible)
4) this is simply a bone thrown to the US justice system, to give them a chance at convicting a "major terrorist" (maybe).
5) this is just a high-profile show-- a PR stunt to the world-- to make it seem like we can handle terrorists in our system, when the reality is that the whole terrorism conflict is a massive farce (probably the most likely explanation).

Take your pick!

If you think the economy is bad now, it is only going to get worse-- leading to severe economic inequality and quite possibly to major social unrest and revolution.

While much of the problem clearly can be traced to the Bush administration, the Obama administration has made things much worse by being disgustingly deferential to Wall Street.

One glimmer of positive news: legislation to audit the Fed, sponsored by Ron Paul, seems to have passed the House. More on that remarkable development here. The main worry about this is that it is too little too late.

I try to be optimistic about these things, but clearly the PTB have a stranglehold on us and things have to change soon. A violent revolution would certainly do it, but a real change in our elected government would be preferable.

Ukraine Pandemic: Black Death or Over-Hyped Flu?

This article certainly paints a scary picture:
The biggest story on the Planet today is the outbreak of a very serious Advanced Biological War virus in Europe. The second biggest story on the Planet is the suppression of this story for almost two weeks by the corporate owned mainstream news media.

There is a lot we know and a lot that we can only speculate on about what is unfolding in Central Europe. We know that in mid-October, less than a month ago, there was a growing number of cases of what many thought was Swine Flu (A/H1N1) in the western part of the Ukraine. We know that many hundreds if not thousands of people in western Ukraine witnessed low flying light airplanes aerosol spraying something over Ukrainian cities during the days of October 29, 2009 and October 31, 2009. We know that beginning the night of October 29th, massive numbers of people begin to get very sick. We know that the Ukraine government issued a statement denying that it was doing any aerial spraying to combat the growing disease or authorizing any spraying over Ukrainian cities. We know that by October 30th, the Ukrainian authorities closed all schools for three weeks and banded public gatherings.

We do NOT know what disease the people were/are coming down with. We do know that doctors are describing the disease as Pneumonic Plague, or as some type of hemorrhagic fever, or as hemorrhagic influenza, or as hemorrhagic pneumonia. We know that the illness, whatever it is, does not appear to be A/H1N1. We do not know if the disease is a recombination of A/H1N1 with other viruses or some totally different virus or if it is in fact a virus. We know that the World Health Organization (WHO) has had several days to sequence the genes of the disease but has failed to release this data.

We know that WHO has NOT called for the quarantining of the Ukraine or the shutdown of all global travel to/from the area of infection and that this is the same thing that they did when Mexican Swine Flu (A/H1N1) first broke out and that the failure to contain that virus early on ensured its spread throughout the world.

We know that the internal temperature of the lungs of those with a terminal case of what many are calling ‘Ukrainian Plague’ is often from 130F to 135F. We do know that autopsies show that the lungs are filled with blood, and are black in color, and that the lung tissue has turned to mush. We know that patients who first show any signs of illness usually crash in less than 48 hours, sometimes the same day.

It's not quite true that there has been a blackout on this story though-- it is just that it hasn't gotten a tremendous amount of attention. Some mainstream articles indicate something unusual is happening in Ukraine, such as here and here. But articles like this and this paint a much more sanguine portrait of the Ukrainian situation. My gut feeling is that the Ukraine situation is mostly hype, but that would mean I am agreeing with Anne Applebaum of the WaPo and the WHO, who can't be trusted. So it's really hard to know what's going on. It's certainly possible that there have been far more deaths than officially reported, and news of these are being suppressed. But I tend to doubt that.

One thing I know for sure though-- I love Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko's hairstyle!

Vomit-Inducing Propaganda Alert

For all the trillions of dollars lavished on it, for all the talk about confronting new security threats, for all the exhortations to reinvent government, America’s defense establishment, as John Farmer reminds us in “The Ground Truth,” continued to fight the cold war more than a decade after it had ended. Preoccupied with building a costly missile defense system to counter a spurious menace from Russia and with maintaining “full spectrum dominance” over the rest of the globe, most Bush administration officials blithely ignored the danger emanating from the caves of Afghanistan, where Osama bin Laden and his acolytes plotted against America. Confronted by a small group of mostly Saudi nationals armed with box cutters, the central nervous system of the country’s defense agencies went into a state of cataleptic shock. The only decisive action taken on 9/11 came not from the military, but from the courageous passengers who stormed the cockpit of United Airlines Flight 93, leading the hijackers to crash the plane over Pennsylvania farmland before it could reach its intended target in Washington.
Unless, maybe this is a joke, some kind of overly serious sarcasm?

And the article started actually kind of promising:
When Sept. 11, 2001, dawned, the Northeast Air Defense Sector in Rome, N.Y., went on full alert — to prepare for a training exercise that envisioned a sneak attack by Russian planes flying over the North Pole to bomb the United States, a prospect that Defense Secretary Robert McNamara had dismissed as outdated in 1966. Later that morning, after American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 had hit the World Trade Center and American Airlines Flight 77 the Pentagon, three F-16 fighter jets were scrambled from Langley Air Force Base to form a combat air patrol over Washington. But degraded radio transmission quality meant that the pilots were left clueless about the nature of their mission. On seeing the Pentagon in flames, the lead fighter pilot later explained, “I reverted to the Russian threat. . . . I’m thinking cruise missile threat from the sea. You know, you look down and see the Pentagon burning, and I thought the bastards snuck one by us. . . . You couldn’t see any airplanes, and no one told us anything.”

Nuke Aftermath at the WTC

From an interesting email:
Lots of Tritrium, compared to what should have been there, I was told was found.

I may have been told this through the victim's group, specifically David Miller.

There was also, according to David, unusual cancer clusters among the exposed population and cases of people, who were exposed there, getting muliple simultaneous cases of rare cancers - at least on par with the cancer clusters from Hiroshima\Nagasaki!

I heard similar stories, though not as dramatic, from my friend who lived on Warren St., near the events, who himself, I understand, developed a unusual blood condition.

The doctors who treat these people refused to make the scientific determination of casuality for the longest time - maybe even til now? And the money for treatment is held back. The victims group was just given the go ahead to sue - since they were blocked from this by rulings in the Court. A special edict was announced by Gov. Patterson this Sept. 29th.

The folks here in NYC who support David and others sick from exposure to the remains of the "big lie hole," I.e. "We are Change," want nothing to do with Steven Jones.

Idiotic Conservative Colorado State Senator Makes Analogy of a Fictional Event and Obama's Presidency

Colorado State Sen. Dave Schultheis (R-Colorado Springs) posted a tweet yesterday that called for a derailing of President Obama's agenda in a rather bold way. The blog Colorado Pols caught the statement from Schultheis's account.

"Don't for a second, think Obama wants what is best for U.S. He is flying the U.S. Plane right into the ground at full speed. Let's Roll," the tweet reads.
Considering the flight 93 crash was a hoax, it's far from clear what Schultheis' statement means. Possibly he means the Obama presidency is really an illusion or possibly a false-flag operation, but I doubt it.

Key Part of Fort Hood Story Bogus

The witness, who asked not to be identified, said Major Hasan wheeled on Sergeant Munley as she rounded the corner of a building and shot her, putting her on the ground. Then Major Hasan turned his back on her and started putting another magazine into his semiautomatic pistol.

It was at that moment that Senior Sgt. Mark Todd, a veteran police officer, rounded another corner of the building, found Major Hasan fumbling with his weapon and shot him.

How the authorities came to issue the original version of the story, which made Sergeant Munley a national hero for several days and obscured Sergeant Todd’s role, remains unclear. (Military officials also said for several hours after the shooting that Major Hasan had been killed, although he had survived.)

Six days after the deadly shooting rampage at a center where soldiers were preparing for deployment, the military has yet to put out a full account of what happened.
I have a feeling they never will put out a full account...

Grim Figures for Veterans Day

Usually, there is nothing more powerful than a personal story to pound home the cost of eight years of war overseas, but I think today there is something even more disturbing to bear.

It’s the number 89,457.

As of Nov. 9, that’s how many American casualties there were in Iraq and Afghanistan since Oct. 7, 2001, when the Afghan war officially began. That includes a tire-screeching 75,134 dead, wounded-in-action, and medically evacuated due to illness, disease, or injury in Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), and 14,323 and counting in Afghanistan, or Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF).
Latest reports are that Obama wants to send up to 34,000 more troops to Afghanistan.

I'm afraid that I think this madness will only end when the US, and much of the world, is reduced to a smoking, charred, radioactive wasteland.

The Fort Hood Conspiracy

Fort Hood: 'This story stinks to high heaven.' SFC, who spent ten years at Fort Hood, comments on Ft. Hood events 09 Nov 2009 I spent 10 years at Ft Hood. There is no way this 'official' story is legitimate. No way would a room full of combat vets allow this one shooter to get off over 100 rounds! And, it is not normal for the outside security guards to be there. They are at the MP station, and at the main gates. This means the room full of soldiers processing must have been pinned down; multiple shooters is the only plausible scenario. this sounds like MAJ Hasan has been used, and perhaps is a patsy. --SFC Donald Buswell (Retired)
Lots more at the CLG link. Also, Major Nidal drank alcohol and frequented a strip club, reminiscent of the 9/11 patsies. Further, the feds had been monitoring Hasan for over a year, supporting the idea that he was being set up.

LHC: More Problems, More Laughable Excuses

The Large Hadron Collider’s woes have taken a faintly comic turn after the huge particle accelerator got broken by a piece of bread dropped by a passing bird.

The 27-kilometer (16.8 mile) LHC suffered serious overheating in several sections after the small piece of baguette landed in a piece of equipment on the surface above the accelerator ring.

Dr Mike Lamont, the LHC’s Machine Coordinator, said that a “a bit of baguette”, believed to have been dropped by a bird, caused the superconducting magnets to heat up from 1.9 Kelvin (-271.1C) to around 8 Kelvin (-265C), near the mark where they stop superconducting.
This is as predicted, by the Anonymous Physicist.

CIA Filth in the News

The CIA relied on intelligence based on torture in prisons in Uzbekistan, a place where widespread torture practices include raping suspects with broken bottles and boiling them alive, says a former British ambassador to the central Asian country.

Craig Murray, the rector of the University of Dundee in Scotland and until 2004 the UK's ambassador to Uzbekistan, said the CIA not only relied on confessions gleaned through extreme torture, it sent terror war suspects to Uzbekistan as part of its extraordinary rendition program.
An Italian judge has convicted 23 Americans - all but one of them CIA agents - and two Italian secret agents for the 2003 kidnap of a Muslim cleric.

The agents were accused of abducting Hassan Mustafa Osama Nasr, known as Abu Omar, from Milan and sending him to Egypt, where he was allegedly tortured.

The trial, which began in June 2007, is the first involving the CIA's so-called "extraordinary rendition" programme.
Glenn Greenwald makes some good points here on the Italian case.

Not only is torture deeply immoral, evil and degrading to our country, it is very illegal. But apparently our wonderful country does not care about these matters, and no CIA or Bush administration torturer has yet been prosecuted for breaking the law.

Fort Hood Shooting: 13 Dead, 30 Wounded

I see they got the two threes in there.

This story has 12 dead, 30 wounded, but has a curious 34 embedded within the article.

This article has the shooting at 1330 hours.

So yeah, it's fishy. Not to mention early reports of a second shooter that have now been scrubbed from the official story.

UPDATE: Greenwald discusses conflicting early reports, including even a report of a THIRD shooter. He tends to dismiss all the early reports as being fallacious, though my feeling is any early report on the perpetrator's background are likely bogus, but early reports of actual events and of other shooters are more likely to be true.

Cataloging the WTC2 Hole Anomalies, Part 2

Part 1 is here.

1) Column on left has odd skeletal remains, looks blasted out; this damage is well above where the wing would have hit. Column on left also looks blasted at bottom, but wing would have hit right at the lower border of the picture, one can see a faint mark there

2) More odd, very irregular damage to these columns-- the leftwards column is sticking down, whereas the right two have been blasted away, including damage to the spandrel plate; it looks like something has taken a bite out of the spandrel plate

3) the most striking part of the hole, to me, is here-- this is supposedly where the engine went in, which would also have been a strong part of the wing. Note the small round hole flanked by busted but NOT SEVERED columns. It is hard to see how, according to the official story, the wing root went in causing so little damage when the outer wing ripped out big chunks of the wall further to the left. A real smoking gun here. Also here is some strange bumpy object on the outside of the wall. Almost looks like a rope with big knots in it. What is this? There actually, oddly enough is something similar in the same place on the WTC1 hole.

4) looks like barely busted in outer columns; again, hard to see how the strong wing root went through here, the official story. Another smoking gun here.

5) the bent structure is most likely a partially collapsed floor; this means there is a huge hole on this side where the engine officially went in. Why such a difference with the other engine hole, which is barely a hole?

Impossible Speed Confirmed for UA175

Pilots for Truth:
Much controversy has surrounded the speeds reported for the World Trade Center attack aircraft. However, none of the arguments for either side of the debate have been properly based on actual data, until now. Pilots For 9/11 Truth have recently analyzed data provided by the National Transportation Safety Board in terms of a "Radar Data Impact Speed Study" in which the NTSB concludes 510 knots and 430 knots for United 175 (South Tower) and American 11 (North Tower), respectively. A benchmark has been set by the October 1999 crash of Egypt Air 990, a 767 which exceeded it's maximum operating limits causing in-flight structural failure, of which data is available to compare to the WTC Attack Aircraft.

Egypt Air 990 (EA990) is a 767 which was reported to have entered a dive and accelerated to a peak speed of .99 Mach at 22,000 feet. Boeing sets maximum operating speeds for the 767 as 360 Knots and .86 Mach. The reason for two airspeed limitations is due to air density at lower vs. higher altitudes. To understand equivalent dynamic pressures on an airframe of low vs. high altitude, there is an airspeed appropriately titled "Equivalent Airspeed" or EAS[1]. EAS is defined as the airspeed at sea level which produces the same dynamic pressure acting on the airframe as the true airspeed at high altitudes.[2]

Pilots For 9/11 Truth have calculated the Equivalent Airspeed for EA990 peak speed of .99 Mach at 22,000 feet as the equivalent dynamic effects of 425 knots at or near sea level. This airspeed is 65 knots over max operating for a 767, 85 knots less than the alleged United 175, and 5 knots less than the alleged American 11. Although it may be probable for the alleged American 11 to achieve such speed as 430 knots is only 5 knots over that of EA990 peak speed, It is impossible for the alleged United 175 to achieve the speeds reported by the NTSB using EA990 as a benchmark.

Pilots For 9/11 Truth have further studied if a 767 could continue controlled flight at such reported speeds. According to the NTSB, EA990 wreckage was found in two distinct debris fields, indicating in-flight structural failure which has been determined to have occurred a few seconds after recording peak speed. Based on EA990, it is impossible for the alleged United 175 to have continued controlled flight at more than 85 knots over the speed which failed the structure of EA990.
Now-- if they only realize that the videos were faked...

Weird Cover-Up Op for 9/11?

NEW YORK – A small fire at the temporary home for the remains of thousands of World Trade Center victims was likely arson committed after a break-in on Saturday, authorities said.

The smoldering flames in a section of the facility's chapel on Manhattan's East Side were quickly extinguished.

Firefighters got a call at about 9 a.m. to respond to Memorial Park, a weatherproof tent on Manhattan's East Side where the city is storing the remains of 9/11 victims who have yet to be identified.

The fire damaged a wooden bench, while mementos — pictures, notes, flowers — honoring the dead disappeared.
First, why on earth are 9/11 remains being stored in a TENT????? Second, why on earth would anyone set fire to the remains unless they were trying to destroy evidence?

The Owners of America

Classic stuff from George Carlin:
"Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice . . . you don’t.

You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own, and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls.

They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying . . . lobbying, to get what they want . . . Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want . . . they don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that . . . that doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. That’s right. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fuckin' years ago. They don’t want that.

You know what they want? They want obedient workers . . . Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your fuckin' retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street, and you know something? They’ll get it . . . they’ll get it all from you sooner or later cause they own this fuckin' place.

It’s a big club and you ain't in it. You and I are not in The big club. By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy.

The table has tilted folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good honest hard-working people . . . white collar, blue collar it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-working people continue, these are people of modest means . . . continue to elect these rich cocksuckers who don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t give a fuck about you . . . they don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t care about you at all . . . at all . . . at all, and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care.

That’s what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes everyday, because the owners of this country know the truth. It’s called the American Dream cause you have to be asleep to believe it..."
The story below on Goldman Sachs fits so beautifully....

Goldman Sachs: Pure Evil

Somebody fucking needs to go to jail:
WASHINGTON — In 2006 and 2007, Goldman Sachs Group peddled more than $40 billion in securities backed by at least 200,000 risky home mortgages, but never told the buyers it was secretly betting that a sharp drop in U.S. housing prices would send the value of those securities plummeting.

Goldman's sales and its clandestine wagers, completed at the brink of the housing market meltdown, enabled the nation's premier investment bank to pass most of its potential losses to others before a flood of mortgage defaults staggered the U.S. and global economies.

Only later did investors discover that what Goldman had promoted as triple-A rated investments were closer to junk.

Now, pension funds, insurance companies, labor unions and foreign financial institutions that bought those dicey mortgage securities are facing large losses, and a five-month McClatchy investigation has found that Goldman's failure to disclose that it made secret, exotic bets on an imminent housing crash may have violated securities laws.

"The Securities and Exchange Commission should be very interested in any financial company that secretly decides a financial product is a loser and then goes out and actively markets that product or very similar products to unsuspecting customers without disclosing its true opinion," said Laurence Kotlikoff, a Boston University economics professor who's proposed a massive overhaul of the nation's banks. "This is fraud and should be prosecuted."
