Where Are the Piles of Bodies?

"... consider that nobody denies that Stalin and Mao killed tens of millions of people by various means. No "revisionists" are asking where the piles of those bodies are. They focus only on the Nazi Holocaust. Why is this?"

In one sense, this is a good question. Is it unfair to only question the holocaust?

Well, okay, now that I think of it-- I think it's quite possible that the deaths caused by Stalin and Mao were inflated, as part of Western capitalist propaganda.

More importantly though, is that the survivors of those millions of dead people caused by Stalin and Mao don't constantly use those deaths as an excuse to rationalize the establishment of their own country, the taking over the land of an indigenous people and the terrible treatment of those indigenous people. At least, as far as I know.

Certainly, the Jewish holocaust is the large-scale death of the middle of the 20th century that gets the bulk of the attention, for various reasons. So it is natural that it will receive more questions and more scrutiny. And to be clear, it's not the questions about the holocaust that drive the attention the holocaust gets-- rather it's the other way around.

And since there are questions about those 6 million deaths, the really odd thing is how little evidence there is for those 6 million deaths there is.  I'm not saying that it is impossible to kill that many people and remove all trace of their bodies from the planet, but it's still quite a feat, and begs for scrutiny.

It's Really Remarkable Just How Terrible Mitt Romney, Even Just In Terms of His Business Experience

If he is somehow elected, despite his huge levels of unlikeability and obvious douchebaggery, I think it will really strike a death-blow to any sort of honest industry that exists in this country. Romney is a vulture capitalist, who feeds off sick companies and kills them shipping jobs overseas and destroying American labor.
A new article by reporter Matt Taibbi in Rolling Stone sheds new light on the origin of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s fortune, revealing how Romney’s former firm, Bain Capital, used private equity to raise money to conduct corporate raids. Taibbi writes: "What most voters don’t know is the way Mitt Romney actually made his fortune: by borrowing vast sums of money that other people were forced to pay back. This is the plain, stark reality that has somehow eluded America’s top political journalists for two consecutive presidential campaigns: Mitt Romney is one of the greatest and most irresponsible debt creators of all time. In the past few decades, in fact, Romney has piled more debt onto more unsuspecting companies, written more gigantic checks that other people have to cover, than perhaps all but a handful of people on planet Earth."

News from Palestine

Hmm-- who would EVER do this?
Yasser Arafat 'poisoned with Polonium'--

Yasser Arafat may have been killed with a lethal dose of the highly radioactive substance Polonium, it has been claimed.

Tests performed by a laboratory in Switzerland found significant traces of Polonium-210 on the late Palestinian leader's clothes, adding a new twist to a case that has obsessed the Arab world for years.

Polonium-210 is the same substance used to poison the Russian dissident Alexader Litvinenko in London.

The claims are likely to renew long-held Palestinian suspicions that the Israeli spy agency Mossad assassinated Arafat, who died in a Paris hospital in November, 2004.

The Institute de Radiophysique in Lausanne found elevated levels of the element on Arafat's personal effects. A urine stain in his underwear registered a level of 180 millibecquerels of Polonium-210, more than 20 times the dose to kill an average human being.

"I can confirm to you that we measured an unexplained, elevated amount of unsupported Polonium-210 in the belongings of Mr Arafat that contained stains of biological fluids," Dr Francois Bochod, the director of the institute, told Al Jazeera, the pan-Arab television station.

Oh yeah, the Mossad...

Israeli court dismisses Corrie family's lawsuit, ending effort to put army on trial -- Rachel Corrie, a young American activist, was crushed by an Israeli army bulldozer in the Gaza Strip in 2003. The Corrie family's lawsuit was aimed at putting the opaque Israeli military investigation system 'in the dock.'

Corrie's story of Palestinian suffering in 2003:

It's only gotten worse since then.

Gaza will not be survivable in 2020 under current conditions and rates of growth.

The Dread UN Agenda 21

Lots of people are freaking out about it:

As far as I am concerned, I think this is just like many other governmental policies, this has the potential for good. The obvious goal is to help people and maintain the environment. In general, I think sustainable development is a good thing.

On the other hand, any major policy could be abused, in the way the people in the video are worried about, by the evil PTB.

But the problem really is the PTB, not sustainable development.

Frankly, I don't see Agenda 21 ever happening, in the form the people in this video are worried about-- certainly not in our lifetimes. I think there is a threat from Agenda 21, but at the same time, I think there is a threat of mankind on the environment that is frankly even more pressing. Rights must be preserved yes, but rights are not much use if we are being poisoned and dying from a polluted, toxic environment. The goal is to make some sort of balance between people's rights and preserving the planet. That has always been a problem -- it's an old conflict, between capitalists and environmentalists. Both always accuse each other of evil intentions-- the capitalists call the environmentalists evil communists, and the environmentalists call the capitalists greedy fascists...and so it goes. I have always tended to come down on the side of the environment, because I think there is just not enough of a brake on corporate pollution in the US-- I just never see big business taking pollution as a serious threat, even though it clearly is. See fracking, for instance.

Ultimately, assuming there is no untoward influence from the truly evil PTB, I think people will find the right balance, because they simply HAVE to, in order to survive.

1973 Film "Executive Action"

Just watched this remarkable movie, kind of a precursor to Stone's "JFK"-- a very well done portrayal, great acting, of a high-level conspiracy to assassinate JFK. I'm mostly kind of stunned how obscure this movie is. If nothing else, it's worth watching for the original footage they have of JFK and Oswald, with lots of interesting documents about Oswald. Funny that Oswald was discharged from the Marines on September 11th!

Reagan Was a Long-Time FBI Informant

I suspect most major politicians have intel ties, but clearly this reinforces the idea that Reagan was major-league scum.
Investigative journalist Seth Rosenfeld’s new book, "Subversives: The FBI’s War on Student Radicals, and Reagan’s Rise to Power," is based on more than 300,000 pages of records Rosenfeld received over three decades through five Freedom of Information lawsuits against the FBI. The book tracks how then-FBI director J. Edgar Hoover ordered his agents to investigate and then disrupt the Free Speech Movement that began in 1964 on the Berkeley campus of the University of California. In part two of our interview, Rosenfeld discusses how Ronald Reagan collaborated with the FBI to target California’s student movement and strengthen Reagan’s own rise to power.

And in other FBI informant news, there's this:
The man who gave the Black Panther Party some of its first firearms and weapons training – which preceded fatal shootouts with Oakland police in the turbulent 1960s – was an undercover FBI informer, according to a former bureau agent and an FBI report.

One of the Bay Area’s most prominent radical activists of the era, Richard Masato Aoki was known as a fierce militant who touted his street-fighting abilities. He was a member of several radical groups before joining and arming the Panthers, whose members received international notoriety for brandishing weapons during patrols of the Oakland police and a protest at the state Legislature.

The Truth About the Holocaust?

A more honest view than the standard narrative, but without denial/revisionism:
Most popular descriptions of the Holocaust ignore complicity of the United States and Britain. Churchill and Roosevelt were provided with extremely accurate information about the mass shootings and the extermination camps but chose not to use their propaganda services to warn potential victims to resist or inform civilian populations in Germany about the full extent of Hitler's crimes and threaten post-war prosecution of the perpetrators. Toward the end of the war, a small effort was made to interfere with the conclusion of the "Final Solution," which saved perhaps a quarter million Jews. To its credit, the US Holocaust museum in Washington, DC admits these facts in its displays.

The "lessons of the Holocaust" are to watch for the rise of fascism and similar nastiness, and to work to prevent this emergence while it is still possible to stop it (not once the violence is at full strength).

Few Holocaust books or movies adequately describe the level of resistance in the Ghettos, Jewish partisans in the forests, and even some of the death camps -- revolts under the most extreme conditions imaginable.The Nazis also killed millions of Poles, communists, Russian civilians and prisoners of war, so-called Gypsies (Roma), political dissidents, Catholics, Jehovah's Witnesses, male homosexuals, psychiatric patients and the infirm, among others. The Nazi war machine killed tens of millions, total, in their quest to take over the world.

Some Nazis were exempted from prosecution through secret deals with the Allies. Operation Paperclip smuggled thousands of Nazi criminals into the US to help with the space program and the CIA, others were helped to relocate to South America, where some destablized local governments and helped institute fascism (Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay).

To the extent it goes, this (see comments section) also sounds about right:
The Nazis murdered millions of Jews, as well as Christians, leftists, Communists, Freemasons, Gypsies, homosexuals, etc. etc. etc.

All of these people had . . . wait for it . . . property! Yes, that's right, property. Land, companies, stocks, bonds, jewelry, money, houses, factories, shops, buildings, jobs, etc.

Before the Nazis murdered the Jews, they passed a bunch of . . . wait for it . . . laws! What did the laws do? Why, like Jim Crow laws, they systematically disenfranchised Jews. The laws economically and socially alienated the Jews from Nazi-controlled German society. This made it easier to murder them.

What happened to the Jews during WWII has often been referred to as . . . wait for it . . . liquidation. Where have we heard that term before? Finance? Business. That's right.

The Jews were "liquidated" and the Germans got the Jews' stuff. Their houses, their businesses, their jobs, their property, etc.

See, the Jews have always been a "model minority." The problem? They're too good at the game. The game of capitalism, or life, that is.

Prior to the Nazi ascension, the Jews held a high percentage of positions in law, medicine, and academia. Why did they hold these positions? Could it have anything to do with the fact that Judaism tolerates doctrinal and intellectual dissent, even over sacred texts, and that most Jews had to be fluent in several languages, including one that you have to read backward, Hebrew? Would this be because such cultural traits automatically make one more competitive for positions that require intellectual faculties?

I'll let you decide.

Anyway, after the disenfranchising laws, they lost these positions. It was a big incentive for intelligent, upwardly mobile, gentile Germans to join the Nazis; they would get to take over those positions earlier, and in greater numbers. Likewise, the gentile businesses saw "opportunities" in that they would get to take over Jewish-controlled business.

These were the carrots that the Nazis dangled for the German people. The promise of upward mobility. Plus, if you're a typical gentile, you've been raised to view the Jews as weak, untermenschen. The fact that they succeed in certain areas, at your expense, since its a capitalistic system of winners and losers, is intolerable, since you should win since you've been raised to believe that you're so great.

So, you are right. It wasn't just about hate. There were huge financial incentives as well to appeal to the grasping nature of ordinary people.

Now, as for the proverbial, "whole truth" about the Holocaust; sure, it was a complicated event. It wasn't black and white. There were Nazis who were ethnically Jewish. There were tens of thousands of German Jews who were given the opportunity to Aryanize into the Germany army because they were deemed politically trustworthy. There was Jewish collaboration via the Judenrat in exterminating Jews, some of it done knowingly to save a select few's hides, and some done unknowingly. And then you have all of the standard fraud and distortion that comes with an even [sic] involving millions of people. But none of this changes the fact that the Holocaust was about liquidation and "purification." That's why, if you're a European Jew, and you go back to Europe to see where your grandparents or greatgrandparents used to live, you'll find that there are other people, non-Jews, living in their houses. Just like how the Native Americans look and see non-Native Americans living on the land of their ancestors. We keep them tucked out of sight too. Out of sight, out of mind.

KKKarl Rove, the Theft of Ohio in 2004 and the Death of Michael Connell

AMY GOODMAN: So now let’s go back to Ohio, in fact, Ohio and SMARTech. This is the one chance you ever had to question Karl Rove about that.

CRAIG UNGER: Exactly. And I met Karl Rove in Alabama, and I asked him. And he said, "SMARTech? What’s that? I’ve never heard of it."

Well, SMARTech is a high-tech company in Chattanooga. And what you see with Rove’s methodology is he manages to have things happen in his benefit, and there are no fingerprints. But I traced the ownership of SMARTech and its precursors, and the original company was funded by two—its precursor, rather, was funded by two Republicans named Bill DeWitt and Mercer Reynolds. Mercer Reynolds was finance chairman of the Republican Party. In ’04, he raised about a quarter of a billion dollars for the Bush-Cheney campaign. And in the ’80s, they had bailed out George W. Bush in his oil ventures, DeWitt and Reynolds had. So they were very, very close to him.

And this company started off as a very legitimate high-tech company in Chattanooga during the dot-com boom. It later reformed under a different name and different ownership, but by then it had become very much a political operation. So, this was a highly, highly partisan Republican high-tech company. It hosted—its biggest clients included the Bush-Cheney campaign, it included Jeb Bush, it included the Republican National Committee. It streamed live the convention, the Republican convention.

And somehow or other, in 2004, in the state of Ohio, which was the single most crucial state in the electoral college, when it came to the actual voting, the secretary of state of Ohio, a guy named Ken Blackwell—and the secretary of state’s job is to—part of it is to ensure fair, nonpartisan elections—happened to be co-chair of the Bush campaign. Now, there’s no conflict there. And he gave a contract to host the fail oversight for the Republican—rather, for the votes in 2004, to none other than SMARTech. And this is where things went a little crazy.

NERMEEN SHAIKH: But how was that allowed to happen even? I mean—

CRAIG UNGER: Well, I mean, I think it is a huge conflict of interest on the face of it for the secretary of state of a party to be affiliated with one campaign or the other. And we saw it, of course, in Florida in 2000 with Katherine Harris.

AMY GOODMAN: Well, 2004, election night, tell us the story.

CRAIG UNGER: Right, Well, about at 11:14 p.m., things started to happen, exactly 11:14 p.m. And as the votes came in, it was clear it was going to be an all-nighter in terms of the results. And around 11:00, Florida was called for Bush, and that meant the entire fate of the election hinged on Ohio. So, suddenly—excuse me—the servers for the secretary of state’s computers were flooded with queries.

AMY GOODMAN: Ohio secretary of state.

CRAIG UNGER: Exactly. And they needed to lock into the fail oversight in Chattanooga with SMARTech. And this is where the results went a little crazy. And suddenly, an enormous number of irregular returns came in, and the votes shifted. The exit polls had shown Kerry winning Ohio, and therefore the election. And it looked like he had won the presidential election. I remember that day vividly because I was getting reports from the exit polls, and I went around telling people it looked like Kerry had won. But there was a 6.7 percent difference between the exit polls and the actual results. And as a result, the election ended up going to Bush. And that was the entire story.
AMY GOODMAN: Before we go to break, I want to go one more time back to Ohio, because you really focus on these issues in the book. Michael Connell, who he was, and what his death meant?

CRAIG UNGER: Right. Well, he was known as Rove’s sort of cyber-guru, and he had a company called New Media that was—hosted all its work at SMARTech, as I—the company I mentioned earlier. And what you see there is, again, a highly partisan Republican operative who gets involved in what are supposed to be nonpartisan activities. And there were a number of things going on there. What first struck my attention is he got contracts to host the House Judiciary Committee, the House Intelligence Committee, a lot of government committees, which included emails and so forth of Democrats. And I thought back to Watergate, of course, when the Republicans broke in to get one file from the Watergate office. Here, they presumably had access to thousands and thousands of files for many, many years. Whether they used that or not, I don’t really know.

They were also—you know, but Connell—one of the things that’s very interesting is how evidence disappeared again and again and again in this case. And what you saw is that in all of these scandals—in the U.S. attorneys scandal and the Valerie Plame scandal—Rove’s emails were subpoenaed, and they were hosted at SMARTech. And, oops, millions of emails mysteriously disappeared. Now, these were supposedly under the—protected by the Presidential Preservation Records Act [Presidential Recordings and Materials Preservation Act], and the destruction of government documents is a very, very serious crime. But every attempt to investigate turns up naught. And Mike Connell became increasingly an important witness in this case. He was subpoenaed once. There was a case investigating the 2004 election. He was supposed to testify again. And finally, before he could testify again, he died in a plane crash, in a solo private plane.

NERMEEN SHAIKH: I want to ask you about Stephen Spoonamore, a former John McCain supporter and a highly successful expert of the detection of computer fraud. In 2008, he named Mike Connell and his company, GovTech Solutions, as having played a crucial role in the electronic subversion of the vote in Ohio in 2004. I want to ask you more about Spoonamore, but first I want to turn to a 2008 interview Democracy Now! did with the media scholar Mark Crispin Miller shortly after Mike Connell died in a plane crash. In this clip, Miller says Connell asked Spoonamore how one would go about destroying White House emails.

MARK CRISPIN MILLER: Stephen Spoonamore is a conservative Republican, a former McCain supporter and a very prominent expert at the detection of computer fraud. He’s the star witness in the Ohio lawsuit, right, in which Connell was involved. He has done extensive work of this kind, involving computer security, and had therefore worked with Connell, knew Connell personally and knew a lot of the people who were involved in the sort of cyber-security end of the Bush operation.

Despite his conservatism—or I suppose some would say because of it—he’s a man of principle—I mean, believes in the Constitution. He believes elections should be honest. He’s the one who came forward and named Connell.

And I have seen his notes of a conversation in which Connell asked Spoonamore how one would go about destroying White House emails. To this, Spoonamore said, "This conversation is over. You’re asking me to do something illegal." But clearly, clearly—this is the important point—Mike Connell was up past his eyeballs in the most sensitive and explosive aspects of this crime family that, you know, has been masquerading as a political party.

NERMEEN SHAIKH: That was Mark Crispin Miller speaking to Democracy Now! Do you think Ohio 2004 was stolen, and do you think it’s possible that something like that could happen in the 2012 election?

CRAIG UNGER: Well, there was no question there was massive fraud. If you want to actually count the votes, unfortunately it’s impossible because so much evidence was destroyed. And then that’s why Mike Connell was such an important witness, and his death meant that—you know, I quoted—I talked to Mike Connell’s sister, who said either—there are only two possibilities, really, that Connell was murdered—and I don’t see any evidence of that—or that he was in an accident, in which case Karl Rove is the luckiest man alive.

Could this happen again? I think—you know, I think electronic voting is very, very dangerous, and it’s very easy to manipulate. But I also found evidence in Ohio of extraordinary kinds of fraud that could happen with punchcard ballots, as well, through very elaborate and byzantine means of—known as cross-voting. And I think a lot of people don’t realize, when you go into a voting booth and you see another voting booth nearby, if you voted the same way in the adjoining booth, in the wrong booth, or if your punchcard is counted by the different computer, it would register to a different vote.

Raub Released

CHESTERFIELD, VA— In an unexpected ruling handed down today by Circuit Court Judge Allan Sharrett, the judge dismissed the government’s case against Brandon Raub, the Marine who was arrested by local police and FBI agents, detained in a psychiatric ward and forced to undergo psychological evaluations based solely on the controversial nature of lines from song lyrics, political messages and virtual card games which he posted to his private Facebook page. Judge Sharrett dismissed the petition for involuntary commitment on the grounds that the petition “is so devoid of any factual allegations that it could not be reasonably expected to give rise to a case or controversy.” Raub is expected to be released immediately.

“This is a great victory for the First Amendment and the rule of law,” said John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute. “Brandon Raub was arrested with no warning, targeted for doing nothing more than speaking out against the government, detained against his will, and isolated from his family, friends and attorneys. These are the kinds of things that take place in totalitarian societies. Today, at least, Judge Allan Sharrett proved that justice can still prevail in America.”

Brandon Raub, a former Marine who has served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, was detained by FBI agents and police officers at his home in Chesterfield County based upon the nature of content posted to his Facebook page in recent months. Like many Facebook users, Raub uses his Facebook page to post song lyrics and air his political opinions, as well as engage in virtual online games with other users. On Thursday, August 16, 2012, police and FBI agents arrived at Raub’s home, asking to speak with him about his Facebook posts. They did not provide Raub with a search warrant. Raub was cooperative and agreed to speak with them. Without providing any explanation, levying any charges against Raub or reading him his rights, law enforcement officials then handcuffed Raub and transported him first to the police headquarters, then to John Randolph Medical Center, where he was held against his will due to alleged concerns that his Facebook posts were “terrorist in nature.” Outraged onlookers filmed the arrest and posted the footage to YouTube.

Brandon Raub--9/11 and Chemtrail Conspiracy Activist Very Active on Facebook Is Arrested and Taken to Psychiatric Hospital

A Chesterfield County man and Marine veteran is in a local hospital after being picked up by federal and local law enforcement officials concerned about threatening Internet postings.

Brandon J. Raub, 26, was in Hopewell's John Randolph Medical Center on Saturday.

"I'm currently in John Randolph in the psychiatric ward being held against my will," Raub said in a telephone interview.

Reports of his detention Thursday have gone viral on the Internet.

Raub said Secret Service, FBI and Chesterfield police officers came to his home Thursday. "They were concerned about me calling for the arrest of government officials," he said.

He was taken to the Chesterfield police station and then to the hospital, he said.

"I talked to a Secret Service gentleman for 20, 30 minutes," Raub said. "I was very cooperative and answered everything honestly.

"I really love America, and I think that idea that you can be detained and sent somewhere without due process and a lawyer … is crazy."

Raub said he has been raising questions about 9/11 and signed a petition to reopen investigation of the terrorist attacks.

On Wednesday, Raub posted on his Facebook page, "The Revolution is here. And I will lead it."

On Aug. 11, he posted: "I know many of you think I'm going crazy, and are wondering just why I have been posting the things I have been posting. I don't have the energy to explain. Just know that a new beginning is coming."

An Aug. 5 post said, "If you are unaware of the great amount of evil perpetrated by the American Government I suggest you take … your head out of the sand. The day of reckoning is almost at hand."

And on Aug. 4, he posted, "I am standing against a great evil. I will do it all by myself if I have to."

"Our office had received a complaint about threatening posts," said Dee Rybiski, spokeswoman for the Richmond FBI office. "As we would do in any circumstance such as this, our office along with Chesterfield Police (Department) officers went to interview Mr. Raub.

"The FBI did not arrest him," Rybiski said. "We are not commenting any further."

Chesterfield police Lt. Rich McCullough said Saturday, "We were assisting the FBI in a matter. All we did was transport" him to John Randolph for medical evaluation.

According to Secret Service spokesman Max Milien in Washington, "That subject was not arrested by us on any charges."

Raub said he served in the Marine Corps from 2005 to 2011 and was a combat engineer sergeant with service in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has a home silver numismatic-coin business.

Raub said he does not own a gun.
This video goes over some of his posts.

It's hard to know what to make of this really. It's not like this guy said anything that many many other people haven't, including me, here. While many people are getting upset about this, I see it as more of an isolated instance than some sort of clampdown. For now, anyway.

Israel-Iran War Madness

According to the top military analyst for Israel’s Hebrew Language Channel 10, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is “determined to attack Iran before the US elections,” once again bringing the timetable for war into what Obama Administration officials earlier this year called the “sweet spot” for such a war.

Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak have been loudly pushing for the war for months, and have openly spurned popular opposition as well as criticism from the military’s leadership. The Obama Administration is said to be trying to push for a delay until after the vote but the analyst, Alon Ben-David, added that “I doubt Obama could say anything that would convince Netanyahu to delay.”
Any sort of attack on Iran by Israel, would have to be supported by the US in some way. But any such attack is pure insanity, and would be a disaster in every possible way. These people are fucked up.

Why Didn't They Resist?

I remember when I first learned about the Holocaust as a kid, I could not comprehend how so many people could be marched to their death without significant resistance. And I was not the only one-- my friends wondered too, and of course this is a huge question for many people. It was incomprehensible then, and it is still kind of incomprehensible now. There were some answers given-- the Nazis tricked them, they were forced because they were unarmed-- but the answers were still not very satisfying then and they are still not now.

Another issue is that the Holocaust is held up as a reason for why non-violence resistance can never really work and why people need guns-- because non-violence on the part of the Jews didn't stop anything and led to millions of their deaths. This has massively fueled the gun mania in the US-- that having guns prevents us from a fascist state and us from being marched to the gas chambers. But it should be pointed out that non-violent, peaceful protest against a well-armed opponent CAN work, and has worked many times in the past 100 years.

But what if idea that non-violent protest can't work is disinfo meant to discredit methods of peaceful protest? Such an idea would help the PTB, as they would use it as an excuse to sell guns-- not only to the government but also to the populace-- leading to more violence and a type of arms race.

Not to mention that it is the holocaust that Israel uses to justify its extreme aggression against its enemies, and its various covert operations meant to destabilize threats-- leading to lots of suffering and death, and blatant hypocrisy.

Curiously, it's the WASP American right wing that most uses the holocaust to justify gun rights, whereas American Jews tend to be liberal and more supportive of gun control. At the same time, right wing Jews, such as the American Neocons, spend much of their time supporting Israel and US military aggression against perceived fascist threats, rather than worrying about gun rights in the US and the rise of fascism.

The GOP -- A Clear and Present Danger

Truly they are a party of backwards theocrats and racists. Their power cannot end soon enough.
The Paul Ryan Vision of America: Ban Abortion, Defund Contraception, Outlaw In Vitro Fertilization... Ryan opposes abortion in all situations, including cases of rape and incest, and opposes abortion in cases that endanger an expectant mother’s health. Planned Parenthood has also criticized his endorsement of a so-called "Personhood Amendment," which supports defining a fertilized egg as a human being. Ryan was a co-sponsor of the Sanctity of Human Life Act, which even the conservative state of Mississippi rejected last November, and is in favor of defunding Planned Parenthood. Ryan wants to dismantle Medicaid and repeal Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
Rep. Todd Akin, the GOP’s candidate for U.S. Senate in Missouri, suggested in an interview that it was time to “look at or overturn” the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Asked directly if seminal federal civil rights legislation that prohibits discriminatory voting procedures needed to be modified or scrapped, Akin said that states — not the federal government — should set voting rules. According to Akin, elections “have historically always been a state thing” and that’s a “good principle.”... The Voting Rights Act of 1965 prohibits the states from implementing voting procedures that “discriminate on the basis of race, color or membership in a language minority group.” The law built on the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which “prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance.”

Yet Another 9/11 Coincidence/Oddity

Members of New York's Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) were predicting, almost two years before 9/11, that terrorists would fly planes into the World Trade Center. JTTF members described their prediction to best-selling thriller writer Nelson DeMille while he was interviewing them as part of the research for his novel The Lion's Game.

The Lion's Game, written in 1999 and published in January 2000, is about a ruthless Libyan terrorist, known as "The Lion," who comes to the United States and goes on a killing spree. In an introduction to the paperback reissue of the book in 2010, DeMille explained that when he interviewed members of the New York JTTF during his research for the book, he kept hearing about "the next attack." Nearly two years before 9/11, the JTTF members told him that the "World Trade Center would again be targeted, and the attack would be carried out by suicide pilots, flying small private jets loaded with fuel and explosives, which would be flown into the North and South Towers of the Trade Center." [2] (snip)

The New York JTTF was established in 1980, to improve coordination between the FBI and the New York Police Department in the fight against terrorism. [3] The task force, which had exclusive jurisdiction over local terrorism investigations, began with 11 FBI investigators and 11 members of the NYPD. But by 1999 it had grown to more than 140 members and included personnel from numerous other agencies, including the Port Authority Police Department, the Immigration and Naturalization Service, and the Secret Service. [4] It also included more than a dozen CIA officers. [5] The New York JTTF was, according to the FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin, "on the forefront of the war against terrorism." [6]

DeMille told talk radio host Glenn Beck that while conducting research for The Lion's Game, he had been at 26 Federal Plaza, where the New York JTTF was located, and, he recalled, "Just in passing we were talking about the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center." DeMille had asked the JTTF members: "What do you think the next attack would be? Will there be another attack?" They replied that the target of the next terrorist attack in the United States would be the World Trade Center again. They said, "Look, they missed and they're gonna do it next time." [7] (snip)

DeMille pointed out to the JTTF members, "Well, you know, this car bomb in the basement [used in the 1993 attack] really didn't do much." They replied: "No, no, no. It's gonna be Learjets." [9] (Learjets are small private aircraft.) They said there would be "two or three or four Learjets" used in the attack. [10] These planes, they said, would be "full of explosives and full of gasoline." The JTTF members, according to DeMille, were "positive" that that next terrorist attack in the U.S. "was gonna be Learjets full of explosives." The Learjets would be flown by "suicide pilots" into "both towers" of the World Trade Center. [11] And the pilots would be "guys who know how to fly and not [how] to land." [12]


The JTTF members also said they "knew" the target of the attack "was gonna be the World Trade Center. They were pretty definite about that." DeMille asked: "Why not any other iconic landmark? Why not the Empire State Building?" The JTTF members replied that the terrorists would be "looking for maximum death." DeMille pointed out to talk radio host John Gambling, "The Empire State Building doesn't have as many people, obviously, as the Twin Towers." DeMille then asked the JTTF members, "How about something like the Statue of Liberty?" but they told him that the terrorists were "not after symbols or icons. They're after maximum death." [13]

DeMille told the New York Times that the members of the JTTF "were all obsessed with the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center, and they were convinced we'd be attacked again." [14] He similarly told the Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry Al-Youm that he "interviewed many people in the FBI, the Joint Terrorism Task Force, and a few people in the CIA," and they "all knew the World Trade Center would be attacked again." [15] Furthermore, DeMille said, the JTTF members "knew that Arabs were training in the United States to fly small planes." [16] (snip)


Despite what he was told by the members of the JTTF, DeMille did not include the scenario of terrorists crashing planes into the WTC in The Lion's Game. Curiously, though, the novel begins with The Lion carrying out a terrorist attack on a "Flight 175" that is bound for New York.

Very interesting about the small planes, since there were several witnesses who claimed to see a small plane crash into the WTC on 9/11... Obviously, overall this is a limited hangout type disclosure, but indicates the JTTF intel agents were likely planning the 9/11 attacks at this point.

The use of the name flight 175 has got to be significant, perhaps the JTTF agents read the book and used that name as an homage to DeMille? Who knows...

Britain Threatened to Raid the Ecuadorean Embassy to Get Julian Assange

WTF? Britain is willing to break all diplomatic principles...all because Ecuador was giving legal asylum to Assange.

Really crazy... of course, Britain mostly seems to be acting at the behest of the US. Still not clear if Ecuador can smuggle Assange out of Britain without being caught.

Biblical Family Values

Genesis 19:31-35

New International Version (NIV)

31 One day the older daughter said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is no man around here to give us children—as is the custom all over the earth. 32 Let’s get our father to drink wine and then sleep with him and preserve our family line through our father.”

33 That night they got their father to drink wine, and the older daughter went in and slept with him. He was not aware of it when she lay down or when she got up.

34 The next day the older daughter said to the younger, “Last night I slept with my father. Let’s get him to drink wine again tonight, and you go in and sleep with him so we can preserve our family line through our father.” 35 So they got their father to drink wine that night also, and the younger daughter went in and slept with him. Again he was not aware of it when she lay down or when she got up.

Blast from the Past from the Late Gerard Holmgren

I found this old email the other day-- I guess I had asked him about his BTS database anomaly, where it showed that flights 11 and 77 never took off (or weren't even schedule to fly on 9/11).

His response:
I’m relating a personal experience here, so this is only hearsay from your POV, so you can believe it or not, but FWIW…

When I was in SF, I met a guy who was a pilot for a major international airline and flew the big planes.

Without giving him any clue why, I started to quiz him about the flight data recording process. Over a year later, I can’t recount the exact details, but it was highly automated and very precise.

I then asked him whether it would be feasible to manually alter or implant such data retrospectively without it being obvious, and leaving unexplainable discrepancies. He said that it would be almost impossible, and if it could be done at all, it would require a conscious coordinated conspiracy from the highest official to the lowest clerk.

Finally, he looked at me curiously and asked my why I was so interested in this. So I told him. He didn’t look at all surprised, commenting that the hijacking story was complete BS, an absurdity which no-one who worked in the airlines believed.

Perhaps his use of “no-one” is an enthusiastic exaggeration on his part, but you get the general idea.

OK, this is me telling you what someone else told me. But again it fits perfectly with what can verify.

About a week after I made the BTS findings public, the BTS shut down the database, and then moved it to a new location without leaving a forwarding address – highly unusual behavior for a govt dept, and one which implies consciousness of guilt.

They then – 10 months later, they got around to include the flights as scheduled – which would be the easiest part – but still show them as not taking off. So even the BTS can’t “hack” its own data enough to put the flight data in.

Even worse, they’ve made more clangers in the attempted cover up. They’ve included a note that the data for the hijacked flights is not available because they were hijacked – but it actually is there for the two UA flights.

And even though the detailed departure stats now show 11 and 77 as scheduled but cancelled, the summary stats still show no such flights scheduled.

Some have made the absurd suggestion that they deliberately left them out, to create a false lead for skeptics and then pounce with the data, once someone fell for it.

The very foundation of such a suggestion is absurd and intellectually dishonest, and I won’t go into that unless someone asks, but just skipping over the absurdity of stage 1 of that claim…

Wouldn’t the time to pounce have been after I published the findings ? Instead they just incriminate themselves further with the clumsy attempt at cover up described above? Perhaps they’re just stringing us along a bit more ? For another 2 and a bit years?

Furthermore, why wasn’t it leaked to someone more high profile, rather than waiting for someone to stumble across it ?

This requires one to believe

a) That I’m lying about how discovered it (see below) and that someone “tipped me off” – someone who was already marginalized for my support of the no plane evidence – why use me ?

b) That after tipping me off, they made no effort to build it up, considering that the “movement “ just met me with another storm of ridicule and denial.

Because – again you can believe me or not – but I’ll tell you how I found it.

I found a lot of huge discrepancies in early media reports about which plane went where and when. So I got curious and wondered if somewhere there was an old backed up archive of flight schedules for the airlines – like old versions of booking schedules that you can find on the net when you want to book a flight.

It never occurred to me that the flights didn’t exist. I just wanted to find out when they actually took off.

So I searched around the UA and AA websites, looking for any sign of old booking archives, and looked through google searches, hoping to find something cached , which might give me a clue. Nothing.

But the UA website has a link to BTS on it, which at the time I had no idea of what it was. I just clicked on the link to see what was there, and of course , once I realized what it was, I realized I had struck gold.

When I found that flights were not even scheduled, I went over and over it, thinking that surely I had made some mistake. When I was finally sure that I hadn’t, I sent out an email to some people asking them to check for themselves and make sure that I hadn’t missed something.

That’s how the BTS got discovered. It hardly fits the profile of the govt planting disinfo in order to discredit skeptics.

Someone Is Trying to Send a Message

Conservatives claim that "collectivism" invariably leads to totalitarianism.

However, I think ANY system of government can be turned into totalitarianism over time.*

Even socialists, oddly, have a critique of collectivism:

Many socialists, particularly Libertarian socialists, democratic socialists, individualist anarchists and Marxists criticise the concept of collectivism. Some anti-collectivists often argue that all authoritarian and totalitarian societies are (vertically) collectivist in nature. Socialists argue that modern capitalism and private property, which is based on socialized production and joint-stock or corporate ownership structures, is a form of organic collectivism that sharply contrasts with the utopian picture of capitalism painted by its proponents as a system of free individuals exchanging commodities.[26] Socialists argue that true individualism can only exist when individuals are free from coercive social structures to pursue their own interests, which can only be accomplished by common ownership of socialized, productive assets and free access to the means of life so that no individual has coercive power over other individuals.[27]

George Orwell, a dedicated democratic socialist,[28] believed that collectivism resulted in the empowerment of a minority of individuals that led to further oppression of the majority of the population in the name of some ideal such as freedom.

It cannot be said too often - at any rate, it is not being said nearly often enough - that collectivism is not inherently democratic, but, on the contrary, gives to a tyrannical minority such powers as the Spanish Inquisitors never dreamt of.[29]

Yet in the subsequent sentence he also warns of the tyranny of private ownership over the means of production:

... that a return to 'free' competition means for the great mass of people a tyranny probably worse, because more irresponsible, than that of the state.[29]

Marxists criticize this use of the term "collectivism," on the grounds that all societies are based on class interests and therefore all societies could be considered "collectivist." The liberal ideal of the free individual is seen from a Marxist perspective as a smokescreen for the collective interests of the capitalist class.[citation needed] Social anarchists argue that "individualism" is a front for the interests of the upper class. As anarchist Emma Goldman wrote:

'rugged individualism'... is only a masked attempt to repress and defeat the individual and his individuality. So-called Individualism is the social and economic laissez-faire: the exploitation of the masses by the [ruling] classes by means of legal trickery, spiritual debasement and systematic indoctrination of the servile spirit ... That corrupt and perverse 'individualism' is the straitjacket of individuality. ... [It] has inevitably resulted in the greatest modern slavery, the crassest class distinctions driving millions to the breadline. 'Rugged individualism' has meant all the 'individualism' for the masters, while the people are regimented into a slave caste to serve a handful of self-seeking 'supermen.' ... Their 'rugged individualism' is simply one of the many pretenses the ruling class makes to mask unbridled business and political extortion.[30]

In response to criticism made by various pro-capitalist groups that claim that public ownership or common ownership of the means of production is a form of collectivism, socialists maintain that common ownership over productive assets does not infringe upon the individual, but is instead a liberating force that transcends the false dichotomy of individualism and collectivism.[31] Socialists maintain that these critiques conflate the concept of private property in the means of production with personal possessions and individual production.

I really like this part: "...common ownership over productive assets does not infringe upon the individual, but is instead a liberating force that transcends the false dichotomy of individualism and collectivism."

I certainly agree that a little bit of collectivism is a good thing, and necessary in any decent civilized society.

*The problem, as I see it, is that greedy sociopaths everywhere take over everything good and decent, and corrupt them. While, clearly the system can always be improved, no human construct of organization can ever be perfect, until the sociopathic nature of mankind is removed.

A Note to Racist Idiots

Sikhs are not Muslims.

So yeah -- let the conspiracy games begin! Who programmed THIS latest shooter? Did he really act alone? What was the real meaning of the shooting?

Okay, here we go
An anonymous federal official released the identity of Sunday's Sikh Temple massacre gunman on Monday as US military veteran Wade Michael Page, 40. Page began a shooting rampage at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee on Sunday, leaving six people dead and three others critically wounded in what police are calling an act of domestic terrorism. Wade was killed outside the temple in a shootout with police officers.

According to the source, Page was a US Army "psychological operations specialist," who served between April 1992 and October 1998, ending his career at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

A defense official said the suspect was discharged from the Army in 1998, but he declined to say whether Page received an honorable discharge.

Officials originally described the suspect as a bald, heavy-set, 40-year-old Caucasian with numerous tattoos referencing white supremacist messages.

The Southern Poverty Law Center says that Wade Michael Page, the suspected shooter at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, was a singer in a "skinhead" band called End Apathy.

On Monday the Southern Poverty Law Center, told Reuters that Wade had been a member of the racist skinhead band End Apathy, based in Fayetteville, North Carolina, in 2010. Photos from the band's Myspace website page show Wade playing in the band. Wade also tried to buy goods from the National Alliance, a neo-Nazi group, in 2000, the Center revealed.
Just lovely.

UPDATE: Some people are saying several men were involved in the shooting. That's possible, though if so many men were shooters, then I would expect a higher death toll. Perhaps the witness got confused with the police who came in firing? I have to think that's the case with the person who said there were 20-30 dark dressed men coming in shooting. But a psy-op plot is always possible, with this Page guy as a good patsy for the Obama administration.

A Banking Wrinkle to the Aurora Massacre

Robert Holmes is currently the senior lead scientist with the American credit score company FICO….and will testify soon, to Senate, on LIBOR scandal. Robert Holmes algorithms were said used to discover this massive fraud scheme.

Via Ground Zero Media

According to his LinkedIn profile, James Holmes’s father, Dr. Robert Holmes, who received a PhD in Statistics in 1981 from the University of California at Berkeley, worked for San Diego-based HNC Software, Inc. from 2000 to 2002. HNC, known as a “neural network” company, and DARPA, beginning in 1998, have worked on developing “cortronic neural networks,” which would allow machines to interpret aural and visual stimuli to think like humans.

The cortronic concept was developed by HNC Software’s chief scientist and co-founder, Robert Hecht-Nielsen. HNC merged with the Minneapolis-based Fair Isaac Corporation (FICO), a computer analysis and decision-making company. Robert Holmes continues to work at FICO.

Robert Holmes brief bio at linked in states the following: “My educational background is in Mathematics and Statistics. My experience over the last 10 years at HNC and FICO has been in developing predictive models for financial services; credit & fraud risk models, first and third party application fraud models and internet/online banking fraud models.”

Management Experience: I am currently managing a team building Falcon Fraud Manager Credit card fraud models. I have also managed teams in the Telco and Identity Theft fraud areas.”

How interesting and coincidental is it that in the film The Dark Knight Rises Bane gets his hands on Software that is used to expose the fraud in Wall Street and literally guts the rich?

Robert Holmes is said to have developed computer algorithms that demonstrate predictive models for financial services; credit and fraud risk models, first and third party application fraud models and internet/online banking fraud models.

It is just too coincidental to not be eerily synchronistic. This software has been said to be able trace the Trillions of Dollars that have just vaporized into thin air. All of the spending in theory could be traced to the exact bank accounts of the elite thugs who have stolen it.

Now these Software insiders who may have information to nail corrupt officials have always wound up being fingered by intelligence agencies and many have died mysteriously.
Supposedly the idea that Holmes' father was to testify before Congress is from Sorcha Faal, so take it with a grain of salt. Still, a wild connection.

This site has the whole shooting figured out, somehow.

Us Versus Them

Another layer of control, related to "Mean World Syndrome":
Throughout history, political elites have manipulated social groups to achieve and maintain power. Turning “us against them” has sadly been a primary tactic employed by rulers or would be rulers since the dawn of history. Near the start of Europe’s colonial age, colonizers constructed “us and them” categories called races that have become a terrible permanent part of human culture. Throughout the industrial era, factory owners have pitted “us against them” to divide workers so that they would not organize unions. And in the last two generations Republicans have masterfully used wedge politics-- pitting us against them -- to gain and keep power and to implement policies that a clear majority of the populace dislikes, but apparently cannot find any effective way to change.

"Mean World Syndrome"

This video describes another piece of the global conspiracy puzzle-- how massively excessive use of violent imagery in the media (both news and entertainment) makes Americans more afraid, more likely to buy guns and more likely to support foreign wars!

You can see how the PTB would love such a way to control people's emotions.

Surprisingly, being exposed to endless violent imagery does NOT make Americans more likely to be violent, however. So the violence itself, is coming from another force, most likely from the evil PTB.

The Nazis Didn't Spring Up Out of Nowhere

The US had a long eugenics history that paralleled that of Germany.

Really interesting article here:
Fisher didn’t merely lend his reputation to bigotry. He made eugenics a major focus of his life and regarded it as a natural outgrowth of his economics: “national vitality” depended on a productive citizenry, and it was clear to him that healthy living and careful breeding were the best ways to make the citizenry become more productive. To that end, he helped found the Race Betterment Society; was an active member of the Eugenics Research Association, a group of scholars in the field; and served as founding president of the American Eugenics Society, which organized research, lobbying, and propaganda for the movement.

Yale figured prominently in this work. The early meetings of the AES took place in the Manhattan home of an influential friend of Fisher’s from his college years, Madison Grant, Class of 1887. Other university administrators, faculty, and alumni also played an active part, among them the conservationist Gifford Pinchot ’89 and the explorer and geography professor Ellsworth Huntington ’09PhD. The AES later established its headquarters in offices overlooking the New Haven Green, at Elm and Church Streets. In the years leading up to World War II, when it was carefully downplaying the anti-Semitic character of the eugenics program in Nazi Germany, the AES was housed on the Yale campus. The seminal text of the movement was Madison Grant’s 1916 book, The Passing of the Great Race, which influenced Adolf Hitler himself.

In the early decades of the twentieth century, eugenics “fell squarely in the mainstream of scientific and popular culture,” according to Yale history professor Daniel Kevles, author of the 1985 book In the Name of Eugenics. Theodore Roosevelt popularized the term “race suicide,” for what he saw as the dwindling of the old Anglo-American stock, and the young Winston Churchill advocated sterilization and labor camps for “mental defectives.” Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger decried the proliferation of “human weeds,” while progressive reformer Havelock Ellis thought that getting the reproductive choices right would require the sexual liberation of women.

Evil PTB Watch-- Dawood Hospital in Afghanistan

Horror Hospital: The Most Shocking Photos And Testimony From The Dawood Military Hospital Scandal

If you look at only one story about the Afghan War this year, make it this one. An explosive Congressional investigation revealed horrific new details this week about a U.S. funded military hospital in Afghanistan that kept patients in “Auschwitz-like” conditions. Warning: Graphic images.

An explosive Congressional investigation revealed horrific new details this week about a U.S. funded military hospital in Afghanistan that kept patients in "Auschwitz-like" conditions.

The investigation also revealed that Lt. General William B. Caldwell, then commander of the $11.2 billion dollar a year Afghan training program, tried to block the probe and ordered a cover-up.

There are currently two ongoing investigations looking into the Dawood Military Hospital abuses: one centered around the Military Whistleblower Protection Act, the other concerned with Caldwell’s politically-motivated decision to delay investigations into the hospital until after the 2010 elections.

What follows is a very disturbing look inside the Dawood National Military Hospital. It was compiled with sworn eye-witness testimony from the three U.S. Army colonels who blew the whistle on the scandal, as well as never-before published photos obtained by BuzzFeed.

The photos and corresponding descriptions were collected by U.S. military personnel in Afghanistan.

The images are extremely graphic.

Colonel Gerald Nicholas Carozza: “Patients were lying in filth, in some cases starving and with grotesque bed sores. One patient was on the brink of starving to death.”
They are not kidding-- the images are truly disgusting. I don't know how exactly the place got so bad, but wow.

UPDATE: More info here. $180 million spent on this place.
