The Time Has Arrived for Rebellion

Greg Evensen

The countdown clock and the last chance for “The Founder’s Legacy” of patriotic Americans willing to lay it all on the line for a new Republic, has hit 0:00. Rebellion is no longer an option, a late night “what if” discussion around a bottle of good wine and snacks. It is now the mandated response of oath keeping citizens and Constitutional defending men and women who have heard Paul Revere in 2010.

Peace might upend wealth of Israelis - Jonathan Cook

Hundreds of businesses serving the settlers are booming in the 60 per cent of the West Bank, the so-called Area C, which falls under Israel’s full control. The real estate and construction industries, in particular, benefit from cut-price land – and increased profits – made available by theft from Palestinian owners.

When a jury brings in the first verdict for treason, Americans will know that the rule of law is being restored.

Depression climbs among Gulf Coast residents after BP oil spill

Gulf Coast residents reported a 25.6 % increase in depression after the massive BP oil spill spewed an estimated 172 million gallons of crude into the water, a Gallup poll released Tuesday finds.

A clinical diagnosis of depression among those surveyed was up four points--25.6%-- in the 15 weeks after the April 20 Deepwater Horizon explosion compared to the 15 weeks before the oil spill.


What this article does not mention is the lost way of life that this Gulf Oil Disaster has created, compound that with this current economic depression and the many health issues with being in close proximity to government allowed toxic corexit poison fallout in the rain; I am surprised the numbers in this poll are so low. -- kdtroxel

Jewish Gaza-bound activists: IDF used excessive force in naval raid

Israel Defense Forces soldiers used excessive force while taking over a Gaza-bound aid ship organized by Jewish and Israeli activists, the boat's passengers said Tuesday, countering the military's official version claiming that the takeover had been uneventful.

Testimonies by passengers who were released from police questioning later in the day seemed to counter the IDF's claims, with Israeli activist and former Israel Air Force pilot Yonatan Shapira saying that there were "no words to describe what we went through during the takeover."

Censorship of the Internet Takes Center Stage in "Online Infringement" Bill

Senator Patrick Leahy yesterday introduced the "Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act" (COICA). This flawed bill would allow the Attorney General and the Department of Justice to break the Internet one domain at a time — by requiring domain registrars/registries, ISPs, DNS providers, and others to block Internet users from reaching certain websites. The bill would also create two Internet blacklists. The first is a list of all the websites hit with a censorship court order from the Attorney General. The second, more worrying, blacklist is a list of domain names that the Department of Justice determines — without judicial review — are "dedicated to infringing activities." The bill only requires blocking for domains in the first list, but strongly suggests that domains on the second list should be blocked as well by providing legal immunity for Internet intermediaries and DNS operators who decide to block domains on the second blacklist as well. (It's easy to predict that there will be tremendous pressure for Internet intermediaries of all stripes to block these "deemed infringing" sites on the second blacklist.)

And it's not clear what a user would see in this situation — would it look like a "404 message," that simply says a site or page could not be found, without explaining why? Would users receive some kind of notice clarifying that the site they were seeking was made inaccessible at the behest of the government? Generally speaking, the bill forces all the Internet "middlemen" to act as if a part of the Internet doesn't exist, even though that page may otherwise be completely available and accessible.

Minister Of Defense Peter MacKay Squanders Taxpayer Dollars In Hard Times

As Afghanistan is the graveyard of empires so too is it the graveyard of a hopelessly discredited NATO. So too is it the graveyard of defense ministers who are courtesans to the empire and who buy oversold war toys such as the F 35 that are totally inappropriate to our needs and hideously expensive in a time of economic austerity where economies are sagging and too many thousands are jobless.

Minister MacKay treats the Canadian electorate like local mushroom farmers treat their mushrooms; keep them in the dark and feed them bullshit. Nor is our national media doing Canadians any favors as the Globe and Mail publishes any number of inane reasons for the acquisition of this multi- billion dollar dinosaur that will be still-born seven years from now.

Israel put Nuclear Uranium into orange juice

Juice laced with uranium is just one of many clinical trials allegedly conducted at Israel's Negev nuclear plant, claims investigative journalist Yossi Melman. Melman has accused the plant's management of forcing its workers to take part in life-threatening experiments for the sake of nuclear developments. They also claim the government and the military are involved in a cover-up of the tests. It's taken a decade for them to speak out, but workers at Israel's nuclear reactor facility claim their managers gave them uranium to drink -- as part of an experiment. With no medical supervision or explanation of the risks, the workers now want compensation.

"They told me that the managers of the laboratory approached a few workers within the laboratory and asked them if they are ready to volunteer for a research that they are doing and when the said 'yes' they were asked to drink juices -- grapefruit and orange juice with uranium," Investigative Journalist Yossi Melman says.


“1976 Symington Amendment to the 1961 Foreign Appropriations Act and the Glenn Act forbids the US government from giving financial aid to any nation with nuclear weapons technology that has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NNPT) and allow IAEA inspections.” Aid to Israel is ILLEGAL by US law.-- kdtroxel

Study Finds USPS Overpaid Pension Fund by $75B

The U.S. Postal Service was overcharged by $75 billion for payments to Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) retirees from 1972-2009, according to a study released by the Office of Inspector General (OIG).

The current system of funding the Postal Service’s CSRS pension coffers is inequitable and has resulted in the USPS overpaying, the study says. The OIG estimates that if the overcharge were used to prepay the Postal Service’s health benefits fund, it would fully meet all of the USPS’s accrued retiree health care liabilities and eliminate the need for the required annual payments of more than $5 billion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is only one small problem. The payments into CSRS come from payroll deductions, which means it is not the USPS that was overcharged by the USPS EMPLOYEES! That $75B is not owed to the post office but to the postal workers! And they want it back!

Mizzou scientists: BPA exposure much higher than previously thought

BPA can be found in a wide variety of consumer products, including hard plastic items such as baby bottles, food storage containers, the epoxy lining of canned foods, and dental sealants.

Despite decades of research, questions about BPA have lingered. The chemical has been under the microscope for possible links to diabetes, cancer, sexual dysfunction, obesity and heart disease, along with brain and development problems in babies and young children.

Back in July, vom Saal and University of Missouri colleague Julia Taylor partnered with the Environmental Working Group for a study that found high amounts of BPA in cash register receipts.

Ramadan Goes Down Under Rubble

In the last war on Gaza, more than 6,400 homes were destroyed or severely damaged by the Israeli army. In Johr al-Dik alone roughly 140 houses were demolished. Using bits of rubble and broken asbestos, the family created a small room from the rubble.

But the problems extend beyond targeted demolitions a year and a half ago.

UN panel: Israel suppressing footage of Gaza flotilla raid

An expert panel investigating Israel's boarding of a Gaza-bound aid flotilla four months ago said Tuesday that Israel is suppressing footage of the incident it seized from the passengers.

The three independent, UN-appointed experts said Israeli soldiers confiscated photos and video material from more than two dozen journalists and others aboard the flotilla during the raid, which killed nine pro-Palestinian activists.

"When the military took over the ships, they scrupulously confiscated all photographic material," said Karl T. Hudson-Phillips, a former judge at the International Criminal Court who chaired the panel. "All cameras were seized, all cell phones were seized, all laptops were confiscated."

Dozens of Arab families may be evicted from East Jerusalem neighborhood under court ruling

A Supreme Court ruling Sunday may allow settler groups to move into dozens more homes in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah.

Justices Yoram Danziger, Esther Hayut and Miriam Naor unanimously rejected an appeal by Palestinians claiming to own a large plot in the western portion of the neighborhood. The court ruled that the custodian general, and other owners, including settler representatives, succeeded in proving they owned the property.

The decision means the properties' owners will be able to initiate proceedings for the eviction of dozens of Palestinian families living on the property.

UN denies appointing alien ambassador

The United Nations has denied speculation that it is to appoint an astrophysicist as Earth's representative to extraterrestrial life-forms.

Rumours had been circulating regarding the appointment of Malaysian astrophysicist Mazlan Othman - director of the UN's Office for Outer Space Affairs - to the role of 'first contact point for aliens'.

The story, which first appeared in The Sunday Times, suggested that Othman would be the "nearest thing we have to a 'take me to your leader' [person]".

However, in an email to The Guardian, Othman responded to the claims, saying: "It sounds really cool but I have to deny it."

Cosmic Deception: The Hoaxed Alien Invasion Scenario

You will. Because now you know that after 60 years, trillions of dollars and the best scientific minds in the world pressed into action, a secretive, shadowy group - a government within the government and at once fully outside the government as we know it - has mastered the technologies, the art of deception and the capability to launch an attack on Earth, and make it look like ET s did it.

Feds want backdoors built into VoIP and email

Developers of email, instant-messaging and voice-over-internet-protocol applications would be forced to redesign their services so their contents can be intercepted by law enforcement agents armed with legal wiretap orders under federal legislation reported on Monday by The New York Times.

The legislation would, among other things, require cellphone carriers, websites and other types of service providers to have a way to unscramble encrypted communications traveling over their networks, the report said. It specifically mentions companies such as Research in Motion and Skype, which are popular in part because their cellular communications and VoIP services respectively are widely regarded as offering robust encryption that's impractical if not impossible for government agents to crack.

Despite Safety Concerns at Texas Refinery, U.S. Decides Not to Revoke BP Probation

The Justice Department has decided not to revoke probation that the government had imposed on BP as part of an agreement to address safety violations at the company’s Texas City refinery, site of a deadly 2005 explosion. The decision comes despite a government warning earlier this year that it might revoke the company’s probation if BP failed to address the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s continuing concerns about safety at the refinery.

Since a blast at the refinery in 2005 killed 15 workers, BP has faced both criminal and civil actions for violations identified in investigations after the accident. As part of its plea agreement to resolve the criminal charges it faced after the 2005 blast, BP was given three years’ probation.

UN Fact-Finding Mission Says Israelis "Executed" US Citizen Furkan Dogan

The report of the fact-finding mission of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) on the Israeli attack on the Gaza flotilla released last week shows conclusively, for the first time, that US citizen Furkan Dogan and five Turkish citizens were murdered execution-style by Israeli commandos.

The report reveals that Dogan, the 19-year-old US citizen of Turkish descent, was filming with a small video camera on the top deck of the Mavi Marmara when he was shot twice in the head, once in the back and in the left leg and foot and that he was shot in the face at point blank range while lying on the ground.

The report says Dogan had apparently been "lying on the deck in a conscious or semi-conscious, state for some time" before being shot in his face.

Charges dismissed against Md. man who taped traffic stop

A Harford County Circuit Court judge Monday dismissed wiretapping charges against Anthony Graber, a motorcyclist who was jailed briefly after he taped a Maryland state trooper who stopped him for speeding on I-95. Graber used a camera mounted on his helmet, then posted the video on YouTube.

In April, a few weeks after the traffic stop, Harford County state’s attorney Joseph I. Cassilly charged Graber, a staff sergeant in the Maryland Air National Guard and a computer systems engineer, with violating the state’s wiretapping law. That law dates back to the 1970s and was originally intended to protect citizens from government intrusions into their privacy. If convicted on all charges, Graber faced up to 16 years in prison.

I presented the view that Dr. Akleh’s opinions were anti-Semitic. His response was I would like, first, to point out to dear Mr. Amsel that my Palestinian Arab roots go back thousands of years ago to the Semitic speaking tribes indigenous to Palestine. Thus I could never be anti-Semite (anti-self) compared to self-hating Jew. Despite the Jewish attempts to monopolize the term people understand that Jews are not the only Semitic-speaking tribe. Many of the Hebrew words are the same Arabic words with a little semantic twist. I can respond as well by pointing out that my Jewish roots go back thousands of years as well, to the bloodline of Aaron, the brother of Moses. My views in no way challenge you as a Palestinian, merely your views on the Jewish people.

PressTV - 'Americans seek probe into 9/11'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not need a new probe into 9011. I am satisfied that I have come to the correct conclusions about what happened on that day and I do not cede to the government already proven a liar the authority to tell me whether I am right or wrong. Another government investigation will yield another delay followed by another government cover-up. It's just another chance for them to get their lies sorted out and cover up the earlier holes in the official story.

We know the US Government lied to us about 9-11 just as they lied about Saddam's nuclear weapons. More investigation will not change that. The time has come to quit re-capitulating the fine details about 9-11 and face up to the fact that the US Government lied to us about 9-11 just as they lied about Saddam's nuclear weapons, and to decide what We The People are going to do about it. another investigation is just a stalling tactic to keep us from dealing with the real problem, which is a government that rules us by lie and deception and hoax.

No more investigations. It is time to fire the liars!

Fisherman's 'inseparable relationship' with crocodile

A fisherman in Costa Rica has been explaining his unusual relationship with a crocodile called "Pocho", who he plays with like a pet dog.

He says he released Pocho into the wild but he followed him back, and the pair have been inseparable ever since.

Study: Atheists Know the Most About Religion

A new survey by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life found that most religious Americans don't know shit about their own religions. Sample fun finding: "A majority of Protestants, for instance, couldn't identify Martin Luther as the driving force behind the Protestant Reformation."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course we know more about religion. We studied it. That's why we are atheists!

When I was a small boy living in New Hampshire farming country, I attended the local congregational church and sang in the choir. As a gift for singing in the choir I was given a bible. That was their big mistake, because I read the thing, cover to cover. And I started asking questions. And that was when I was asked to leave!

UFOs and the United Nations. A Last Ditch Desperate Measure To Make the People Afraid to accept World Government.

If you look at what many globalist like Henry Kissinger to H.G. Wells. Even the report from Iron Mountain. They all talked about the American people accepting troops on the streets from the UN to defend us against an Alien Threat. We hear about Project Blue Beam putting holographic images in the sky of an illusion of other life from outer space. Now the news is reporting UFOs tampering with nuclear weapons on Air Force bases. Something sounds very fishy. I see they are trying to make the people of the world afraid so we will accept a one world government as a solution against threat out of this world. Trying to play in the hands of the globalist as a recreation of the 1950s movie"The Day the Earth Stood Still" and "War of the Worlds".

First snowmen of the season spotted as surprise cold snap sweeps across Britain

Britain has received its first autumn snowfalls for the year as a surprise cold snap sent millions reaching for the central heating controls this weekend.

Summer made a particularly swift exit from the Highlands as the first sprinklings of snow paid an early visit to the north of Scotland.

The last time Britain saw a September cold snap as severe as this current one was in 2003, when much of northern England was below freezing.

Pedophile Priests - This vileness has been going on for a long, long time

Yep, they'd been raping children, nuns made complaints to the Catholic hierarchy (apparently not to the secular authorities), and the church responded as it always does…by transferring the offending priests to a new diocese, a fresh hunting ground.

This was all in 1871.

It's as if child-rape is a hallowed tradition within Catholicism.

Israel Used 'Incredible Violence' Against Gaza Aid Flotilla, Says UN Human Rights Council

The sharply critical report found there was "clear evidence to support prosecutions" against Israel for "wilful killing" and torture committed in the raid on the flotilla on May 31. Nine activists on a Turkish ship were killed as they attempted to breach the Israeli naval blockade of Gaza.

However, Israel brushed aside the findings of the UN Human Rights Council, which it has consistently denounced as biased against the Jewish state.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My letter to the localnewspaper, the Star-Advertiser.

Dear Advertiser

This letter is being posted to the world wide web and will be mentioned on today’s radio show.

Yesterday the United Nations Human Rights Council released their report on Israel’s attack on the International Aid Flotilla, concluding that the Gaza blockade is a violation of international law and that Israeli soldiers willfully murdered aid workers, during the illegal seizure of ships.

Given that one of the members of that flotilla was Hawaii’s own Ann Wright, I presumed that the Star-Advertiser, which does bill itself as a news provider, would have a story on the United Nations report, and some local perspective on how Ann Wright felt about the UN Report. But I searched your website in vain for a single mention of this story. It is not on the front page and your website search engine cannot find any mention of the story.

With the release of the United Nations report, Israel is guilty of crimes under international law, including the illegal seizure of a US flagged ship and the murder of a US citizen and the wrongful imprisonment of Hawaii resident Ann Wright. But a fireworks ban seems far more important and newsworthy to you.

I understand why.

Right now the world views every newspaper, every TV program, every magazine and every politician who stood up to defend Israel’s attack on the aid flotilla, including an American ships and American citizens, as an accessory after-the-fact. The same UN Report that tarnishes Israel tarnishes you.

Shame on you for your disloyalty to your fellow Americans. If you want a reason your readership is in decline, you need look no further than a mirror.

Judges reject appeal by Palestinians claiming to own a large plot in the western portion of Sheikh Jarrah, enabling settlers to move ahead with plans to build in the area.

Pentagon Accused Of Launching Supervirus Attack On Iran

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whether it is Israel or the US or both that committed this act of industrial sabotage, the question the mainstream media is refusing to ask is what would have happened if these bozos made a mistake and instead of shutting down the power station they triggered a Chernobyl-style melt down and showered the Mideast with radiation, poisoning the cities, poisoning the people, and poisoning the oil fields on which we are still dependent? Is anyone actually thinking these things through? Or are we ruled by leaders who do not care if they blow up the world as long as those gosh-darned Muslims get it first?

One thing is clear. Since this computer weapon has to be inserted using an infected USB flash drive, there is a foreign spy on the staff at the power station.

US to spy on Internet messaging

The Obama White House is backing new regulations that would compel popular Internet messaging services like Facebook, Skype and Blackberry to open up their systems to FBI surveillance, the New York Times reported Monday, citing federal law enforcement and national security officials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wouldn't worry about it. Odigo received an advanced warning of the 9-11 attacks and gave the FBI the IP address of the message sender and even with the message and the IP the FBI couldn't figure out where the message came from, so how will they handle half a billion text messages about my BFF!

Israel Suspected in Worm Sabotage of Iran's First Nuclear Plant

The New York Times quotes a former U.S. intelligence office as saying that the attack was the work of Israel’s equivalent of America’s National Security Agency, known as Unit 8200. According to IEEE Spectrum's December issue, Israel had previously used a cyber-attack to shut off radar systems in Syria, allowing it to evaluate what it believed to be an under-construction nuclear reactor.

Global Cooling and the New World Order By James Delingpole

The next few years are going to be very interesting. Watch the global power elite squirming to reposition itself as it slowly distances itself from Anthropogenic Global Warming (”Who? Us? No. We never thought of it as more than a quaint theory…”), and tries to find new ways of justifying green taxation and control. (Ocean acidification; biodiversity; et al). You’ll notice sly shifts in policy spin.

The true cost of Britain’s massive expansion of wind farms has been revealed.

It costs nearly twice as much to generate electricity from an offshore wind farm as it does from a conventional power station, a scientific report has concluded.

And while the price of wind power is expected to fall in the coming decade, the researchers admit there is a slight chance it could rise even further.

Ahead of the Bell: China imposes tariff on chicken

Associated Press

Shares of the nation's chicken producers could tumble on Monday after China said it will slap a hefty tariff on U.S. chicken imports to combat what it says are unfairly low prices.

The Chinese government said Sunday that its investigation found that U.S. chicken products are being sold at low prices which undermine the local market. New import duties ranging from 50.3 percent to as much as 105.4 percent will take effect Monday and last for five years.

Palin and Beck Don’t Support the Troops

Again, the American soldier (Marine, sailor, airman) is exploited through a suffocating mix of hero worship and zealotry, long employed by Republican war hawks to demand loyalty to the state and to expand and protract our occupation overseas. But on that day, at the Restore Honor rally for which she delivered her remarks, Palin and Beck managed to take it to staggering new heights: they proclaimed the American soldier to be the unspoiled, suggesting everyone else be reborn in his image. The military, in effect, are gods.

But they are not gods. They are not only flawed like us, but we learn everyday that the war and the war culture fosters the very worst in some people, while it chews up and spits out others so they become mere shadows of what they were before.
