"WASHINGTON - President Obama will maintain a lid of secrecy on millions of pages of military and intelligence documents that were scheduled to be declassified by the end of the year, according to administration officials. The missed deadline spells trouble for the White House’s promises to introduce an era of government openness, say advocates, who believe that releasing historical information enforces a key check on government behavior. They cite as an example the abuses by the Central Intelligence Agency during the Cold War, including domestic spying and assassinations of foreign officials, that were publicly outlined in a set of agency documents known as the “family jewels.’’ The documents in question - all more than 25 years old - were scheduled to be declassified on Dec. 31 under an order originally signed by President Bill Clinton and amended by President George W. Bush. But now Obama finds himself in the awkward position of extending the secrecy, despite his repeated pledges of greater transparency, because his administration has been unable to prod spy agencies into conformance."
"After months of debate, President Barack Obama will spell out a costly Afghanistan war expansion to a skeptical public Tuesday night, coupling an infusion of as many as 35,000 more troops with a vow that there will be no endless U.S. commitment. His first orders have already been made: at least one group of Marines who will be in place by Christmas."
This is such patently obvious bullshit now that one wonders who the hell they think they're fooling?
Now it's an "infusion", not a "surge". Can we get jobs as their crap artists? There was no debate, it was a foregone conclusion a long time ago that the fascists would protect their immensely profitable heroin operation no matter what - no matter how many Afghans were snuffed and no matter how many american soldiers' lives were destroyed. Truly, are people this fucking stupid that they'll get away with this? Apparently so.
Opium production was virtually erased in Afghanistan by the Taliban. After the empire muscled it's way into the country by pretending to find the 9/11 perps, instead of looking in the mirror to locate them, record poppy harvests commenced year after year. Funny thing that, no? US stooge Karzai's brother is a top drug kingpin, ain't that strange? The US pays the Taliban to leave the big scam alone, how about that? Let me repeat. The US pays the supposed enemy that they're fighting to get the fuck out of the way so their operation can continue.
Can this all be so complicated that Foxified dullards can't grasp it? I guess. That way the propagandists can get away with telling the great unwashed this idiotic shit, as if it's a brilliantly sly tactic in the phony "drug war":
Get it? You have to find a way to explain why the country is awash in opium while you're turning away and looking at the sky and whistling, so you pretend the flood of drugs is great drug policy. Jeebus, this is hallucinogenic.
Obama is going to get in front of the dead-from-the-neck-up american mouthbreathers tomorrow and lie to them that the Afghanistan war is vital to american security. This has been code, for a long time now, that what the fascists are doing are vital to their interests. When they talk about freedom they mean their freedom. Any mention of security is their security. This scumbag is about to send tens of thousands of servicepeople to Poppystan because the immense drug profits are the only thing left keeping Wall Street going and the criminals need more muscle to pull it off.
Overthrowing the populist government there in the first latin american coup in 20 years removed the threat of a good example. The coup plotters only had to hold onto power until this sham election (all oversight agencies knew in advance it would be corrupt and didn't bother to send monitors) which the US will praise as legitimate. Voila, corporate bottom line is secure and cocaine will still be run through Palmerola. Too bad about the poverty and destitution.
"PilotsFor911Truth.org) - Newly decoded data provided by an independent researcher and computer programmer from Australia exposes alarming evidence that the reported hijacking aboard American Airlines Flight 77 was impossible to have existed. A data parameter labeled "FLT DECK DOOR", cross checks with previously decoded data obtained by Pilots For 9/11 Truth from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) through the Freedom Of Information Act.
"On the morning of September 11, 2001, American Airlines Flight 77 departed Dulles International Airport bound for Los Angeles at 8:20 am Eastern Time. According to reports and data, a hijacking took place between 08:50:54 and 08:54:11 in which the hijackers allegedly crashed the aircraft into the Pentagon at 09:37:45. Reported by CNN, according to Ted Olson, wife Barbara Olson had called him from the reported flight stating, "...all passengers and flight personnel, including the pilots, were herded to the back of the plane by armed hijackers...". However, according to Flight Data provided by the NTSB, the Flight Deck Door was never opened in flight. How were the hijackers able to gain access to the cockpit, remove the pilots, and navigate the aircraft to the Pentagon if the Flight Deck Door remained closed?"
"American consumers shopped more for bargains at the start of the U.S. holiday season and spent significantly less than a year ago, according to early data released on Sunday. Consumers said they will have spent nearly 8 percent less on average, or about $343 per person, over the weekend that includes U.S. Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday and runs through Sunday, according to the National Retail Federation. While traffic to stores and retail websites rose to 195 million people from 172 million in 2008, the early data this weekend represents a worrisome sign for retailers, who had braced for weak sales and sought ways to protect margins. Data released by ShopperTrak on Saturday showed that sales rose a scant 0.5 percent on Black Friday, which is often the single busiest day of the holiday shopping season."
"PARKLAND, Wash. (AP)— A convicted felon granted clemency nine years ago by former Arkansas Governor and 2008 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, is wanted for questioning in the shooting deaths of four police officers in Washington state. Maurice Clemmons, the man wanted for questioning, has been convicted of five felonies in Arkansas and has been charged with eight felonies in Washington state. The Seattle Times spoke to the prosecuting attorney in Arkansas who opposed Huckabee's clemency for Clemmons: "This is the day I've been dreading for a long time," Larry Jegley, prosecuting attorney for Arkansas' Pulaski County said Sunday night when informed that Clemmons was being sought in connection to the killings... Clemmons had been in jail in Pierce County for the past several months on a pending charge of second-degree rape of a child."
"If you’re looking for the chief kingpin in the Afghanistan heroin trade, it’s the United States. The American mission has devolved to a Mafiosi-style arrangement that poisons every military and political alliance entered into by the U.S. and its puppet government in Kabul. It is a gangster occupation, in which U.S.-allied drug dealers are put in charge of the police and border patrol, while their rivals are placed on American hit lists, marked for death or capture. As a result, Afghanistan has been transformed into an opium plantation that supplies 90 percent of the world’s heroin.
An article in the current issue of Harper’s magazine explores the inner workings of the drug-infested U.S. occupation, it’s near-total dependence on alliances forged with players in the heroin trade. The story centers on the town of Spin Boldak, on the southeastern border with Pakistan, gateway to the opium fields of Kandahar and Helmand provinces. The chief Afghan drug lord is also the head of the border patrol and the local militia. The author is an undercover U.S.-based journalist who was befriended by the drug lord’s top operatives and met with the U.S. and Canadian officers that collaborate with the drug dealer on a daily basis.
The alliance was forged by American forces during the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, and has endured and grown ever since. The drug lord, and others like him throughout the country, is not only immune to serious American interference, he has been empowered through U.S. money and arms to consolidate his drug business at the expense of drug-dealing rivals in other tribes, forcing some of them into alliance with the Taliban. On the ground in Pashtun-speaking Afghanistan, the war is largely between armies run by heroin merchants, some aligned with the Americans, others with the Taliban. The Taliban appear to be gaining the upper hand in this Mafiosa gang war, the origins of which are directly rooted in U.S. policy.
"It is a war whose order of battle is largely defined by the drug trade."
Is it any wonder, then, that the United States so often launches air strikes against civilian wedding parties, wiping out the greater part of bride and groom's extended families? America’s drug-dealing allies have been dropping dimes on rival clans and tribes, using the Americans as high-tech muscle in their deadly feuds. Now the Americans and their European occupation partners have institutionalized the rules of gangster warfare with official hit lists of drug dealers to be killed or captured on sight – lists drawn up by other drug lords affiliated with the occupation forces.
This is the "war of necessity" that President Barack Obama has embraced as his own. It is a war whose order of battle is largely defined by the drug trade. Obama's generals call for tens of thousands of new U.S. troops in hopes of lessening their dependency on the militias and police forces currently controlled by American-allied drug dealers. But of course, that will only push America's Afghan partners in the drug trade into the arms of the Taliban, who will cut a better deal. Then the generals were argue that they need even more U.S. troops.
The Americans created this drug-saturated hell, and their occupation is now doomed by it. Unfortunately, they have also doomed millions of Afghans in the process."
"This is not a war of choice. This is a war of necessity," Obama told the annual Veterans of Foreign Wars conference -- cautioning that the insurgency would not be defeated overnight. "Those who attacked America on 9/11 are plotting to do so again. If left unchecked, the Taliban insurgency will mean an even larger safe haven from which Al Qaeda would plot to kill more Americans."
"Motorists who leave their cars running on frosty mornings to warm up the engine and clear the windscreen could face being fined under anti-pollution rules this winter. Drivers are being told that leaving a car idling for more than a couple of minutes wastes fuel, and they could be served with on-the-spot fines of up to £40."
"Washington (CNN) -- Gregg Keesling chooses his words carefully when he talks about the death of his son, Spc. Chancellor Keesling. As far as he's concerned, the soldier didn't "take his own life" or "commit suicide." His son "died by suicide," Keesling insists -- and he has his reasons why. When 25-year old Chancellor Keesling shot himself in Iraq on June 19, his family received much support from the military and local officials. Gregg Keesling's son was given the honor afforded to a fallen service member. The Keesling family went to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to watch as his body was flown back to Indiana six days later. At his burial, seven rifles fired three times each, in true military tradition. Later, the soldier's aunt created a memorial wall in the family's Indianapolis living room. On the wall hangs Spc. Keesling's uniform, the U.S. flag that was handed to his mother, Jannett, after the service and the Indianapolis flag that flew over the state Capitol in his honor. Yet there's an empty spot on the wall for an honor that never arrived: a letter from the president. Gregg Keesling wanted to know why, especially after hearing President Obama talk about how he struggled to write letters to the families of each and every soldier killed in the war. After pressing for an answer, the family found out the truth: There would be no condolence letter."
We tend to think about outbreaks of disease in straight allopathic medicine terms. Pathogens can all of a sudden spread rapidly through otherwise healthy populations because that's the way of the universe, it's natural, and that's the way it's always been. We shrug it off to Darwinism, survival of the fittest, it's a cruel world after all, shit happens, there are a lot of scourges that periodically manifest and there's nothing we can do about it.
But in light of some vicious disease outbreaks that we know have laboratory origins and when we realize that our overlords have never minced words about how they want to cull the population of useless eaters, it might be useful to take another look at what historian William Bramley wrote in his book "The Gods of Eden".
"The Black Death began in Asia and soon spread to Europe where it killed well over 25 million people (about one third of Europe's total population) in less than four years. Some historians put the casualty figure closer to 35 to 40 million people, or about half of all Europeans............Two types of plague are believed to have caused the Black Death. The first is the "bubonic" type, which was the most common. The bubonic form of plague is characterized by swellings of the lymph nodes: the swellings are called "buboes," The buboes are accompanied by vomiting, fever and death............ This form of plague is not contagious between human beings; it requires an active carrier, such as a flea. For this reason, many historians believe that flea-infested rodents caused the Bubonic Plague...........The second form of plague contributing to the Black Death is a highly contagious type known as "pneumonic" plague. It is marked by shivering, rapid breathing and the coughing up of blood............... This second type of plague is nearly always fatal and transmits best in cold weather and in poor ventilation. Some physicians today believe it was this second form, the "pneumonic" plague, which was responsible for most of the casualties of the Black Death because of the crowding and poor hygienic conditions then prevalent in Europe. We would normally shake our heads at this tragic period of human history and be thankful that modern medicine has developed cures for these dread diseases. However, troubling enigmas about the Black Death still linger. Many outbreaks occurred in summer during warm weather in uncrowded regions. Not all outbreaks of bubonic plague were preceded by rodent infestation; in fact, only a minority of cases seemed to be related to an increase in the presence of vermin. The greatest puzzle about the Black Death is how it was able to strike isolated human populations which had no contact with earlier infected areas. The epidemics also tended to end abruptly...........A great many people throughout Europe and other Plague stricken regions of the world were reporting that outbreaks of the Plague were caused by foul-smelling "mists". Those mists frequently appeared after unusually bright lights in the sky. The historian quickly discovers that "mists" were reported far more frequently and in many more locations than were rodent infestations. The Plague years were, in fact, a period of heavy UFO activity."
"Of all the phenomena connected to the Black Death, by far the most frequently reported were the strange, noxious "mists." The vapors were often observed even when other phenomena were not. Mr. Nohl points out that moist pestilential fogs were "a feature which preceded the epidemic throughout its whole course." A great many physicians of the time took it for granted that the strange mists caused the Plague. The connection was established at the very beginning of the Black Death."
We're told the pestilence at the time was bubonic plague transmitted by fleas carried by rodents, soley through the work of a late ninteenth century biologist named Alexandre Yersin. He noted the similarities between recorded symptoms during the Black Death years and bubonic plague - those swollen lymph glands called buboes. Even though that happens in a lot of diseases his theory has been accepted as fact. But as the author states there's a huge problem with what happened during the black death years if fleas were responsible. Whatever was killing people occured simultaneously in far flung areas, the disease spread in places too cold for fleas to live and it moved far too fast for rats to travel. So it's timely to recall the reports of "mists" that Bramley wrote about. It's interesting that we've been sprayed continuously with chemtrails for at least ten solid years.
"Kiev, Ukraine - Authorities in the town of Kiev, Ukraine denied any spraying of "aerosolized medication" by aircraft over the city. This after it was reported that light aircrafts were seen flying over the forest market area that sprayed a aerosol substance to fight h1n1 or swine flu. 5 Sources confirms this and the local newspapers of Kiev also received hundreds of phone calls from residents and business owners close to the area the planes were spraying the suspicious substance. Not only that but local businesses and retailers were "advised" to stay indoors during the day by the local authorities. As if that is not enough, the government authorities also pushed the radio stations in Kiev to deny the reports. Online on forums, websites and blogs reports came in about eye witness accounts that confirms this. There was also reports of helicopters spraying aerosols over Kiev, Lviv, Ternopil and throughout Ukraine."
I'm not shy about saying that the death cult running the planet at the present time is intimately involved with entities that don't have human origins, and decent people wouldn't begin to consider them to be nice guys. They've been around for a long time but who they are and where they come from can't be determined by us peasants right now. They could be Icke's reptilians, or the wave of visitors that decided to manifest after humans blew up some atomic bombs, or Annunaki or interdimensional beings or gods of the bible or whoever. But our self ordained Masters Of The World seem to derive great confidence and ambition from them, and most assuredly advanced technology. It would be a safe bet to assume our human overlords are copying them/following orders with this current business of culling the herd, because if Bramley's research has any validity this isn't the first time it's been done.
"Domestic policies such as health care reform and financial regulation are dominating Congress’ legislative agenda this year. But on Wednesday, the House of Representatives approved a non-binding measure denouncing a United Nations inquiry that found that Israel committed scores of war crimes in its three-week assault last year in Gaza. More than 1,300 Palestinians were killed in the Israeli attack, many of whom were civilians, according to Amnesty International. Headed by South African jurist Richard Goldstone, the inquiry also accused Hamas of war crimes and said both sides should investigate the allegations or face international prosecution. In voting for the measure, the House dismissed the Goldstone report as “irredeemably biased and unworthy of further consideration or legitimacy.” It also called on the Obama administration to “strongly and unequivocally oppose” discussion of the report’s findings in any international setting. The resolution passed 344-46. The members of the House who voted in favor of the resolution have received $51,260 more on average from pro-Israel organizations ($81,020 versus $29,770) since 1989 than those who opposed it, the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics has found."
"U.S. residents are wasting food like never before. While many Americans feasted on turkey and all the fixings yesterday, a new study finds food waste per person has shot up 50 percent since 1974. Some 1,400 calories worth of food is discarded per person each day, which adds up to 150 trillion calories a year. The study finds that about 40 percent of all the food produced in the United States is tossed out."
FDIC Fund Slides into the Red "It’s official: the overwhelming number of bank failures since the onset of the nation’s financial crisis have pushed the FDIC’s insurance fund into negative territory. The agency said Tuesday that its reserve used to protect consumers’ deposits when a financial institution goes under is $8.2 billion in the hole."
"In a report from the FDIC that the Deposit Insurance Fund has been operating in the red since the third quarter, down by $8.2 billion, there was other bad news, as the number of banks on the problem list of the FDIC has now risen to 552, which in reality is probably much worse than it seems."
These banks have combined assets of $345.9 billion. The real list of troubled banks is over 1000. Good luck with that.
I've been watching this for the past week or so, waiting to see how it panned out, because I think like most people I believe the climate chaos we're seeing is far too complex for easy answers. But if we digest the fact that Obama is going to Copenhagen along with the manufactured financial meltdown and contrived laboratory pandemics, it tastes like one giant push for totalitarian world government.
"On Thursday 19th November 2009 news began to circulate that hacked documents and communications from the University of East Anglia’s Hadley Climate Research Unit (aka CRU) had been published to the internet. The information revealed how top scientists conspired to falsify data in the face of declining global temperatures in order to prop up the premise that man-made factors are driving climate change. The documents and emails illustrated how prominent climatologists, affiliated with the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change, embarked on a venomous and coordinated campaign to ostracize climate skeptics and use their influence to keep dissenting reports from appearing in peer-reviewed journals, as well as using cronyism to avoid compliance with Freedom of Information Act requests."
"Sarah Palin is flying around the country on Billy Graham's aircraft. Graham's people have blocked aircraft tracking data so this fact will remain hidden.
Last weekend, a small notice in local newspapers revealed that Sarah Palin had stopped off in Montreat, NC, to visit the Graham family -- "evangelist" Billy Graham and his (reformed) cokehead son, Franklin Graham. Franklin spent several years snorting coke, screwing everything in a skirt, and generally behaving like a good christian boy. Then, broke, he realized that his father's "evangelistic enterprise" was a real money-maker. So, ol' Franklin got religion, got forgiven, got saved, and GLORY HALLELUJAH -- Franklin is now the head of the Graham family business and the fortune of zillions of $$$$$. Franklin runs an organization called "The Samaritan's Purse." Purse claims on their website to be an "International Christian relief and evangelism organization that provides spiritual and physical aid to victims of war, poverty, natural disaster, and disease." Right. Of course, an "international christian relief organization" can't function without a fleet of corporate airplanes. And that brings us to Sarah Palin. In her book tour, Palin claims that she's just like the rest of us, riding her tour bus from town to town. BULLSHIT. Samaritan's Purse is flying Sarah around in one of its aircraft. She lands near her next book rally, gets on the bus, and rides into town on the bus. Palin is flying around in a Beechcraft/King Air 300tail number N262SP (multi-engine, 11 passengers). The SP does not stand for Sarah Palin -- the plane is owned by Samaritans Purse. This means that donations to SP are being used to haul Palin's carcass around. Wonder what the donors think of that? Hmmm. Does this violate Samaritan's Purses 501c(3) status? And -- get this -- I tried to check the flight activity for this airplane (N262SP) at Flightaware.com. The flight activity for this plane is blocked by the owner. Guess he doesn't want anyone to know where he is flying."
"Sir John Chilcot, the retired civil servant in charge of the inquiry into the Iraq war, has promised to produce a "full and frank" report. Sir John's committee is looking at events between 2001 and 2009, covering the decision to go to war, whether troops were properly prepared, how the conflict was conducted and what planning there was for its aftermath."
Just more garbage to cover up war crime. You know the whole thing is meant to be propaganda when they probably spent more time making up their stupid signs than looking into how the fascists lied to get their invasion and occupation of Iraq.
"Cars and trucks slammed into each other 28 times at Western Avenue and 63rd Street in 2006, the year before the Daley administration installed red-light cameras there in the name of safety. In 2008, the year after cameras went in, accidents at the Southwest Side intersection soared to 42, according to state data.It was not an aberration. Cameras are said to reduce accidents, but collision records compiled by the Illinois Department of Transportation indicate that accidents increased at many city intersections the year after red-light cameras were installed."
"By year's end red-light cameras will be installed at 189 Chicago intersections, the most of any big U.S. city."
"The US government has made a commitment to provide financial aid to Afghan provinces that have reduced or eliminated the production of opium. The United States signed a memorandum of understanding on Monday acoording to which it agreed to give $38.7 million to 27 Afghan provinces that eliminated or significantly reduced poppy production in the world's biggest supplier country, AFP reported. According to the MOU, the money will be handed over to Afghanistan's counter-narcotics ministry, which will disperse the cash to the 27 different provinces to finance development or alternative crops."
Yet more bullshit. The opium crop is worth billions and a few million dollars is a drop in the bucket. It won't stop opium production but it will probably cut it back just enough so that it'll be worth more for the fascists when it's sold.
"Behind all the deceptive official debate over how many troops are needed to “win” the war in Afghanistan, whether another 30,000 is sufficient, or whether at least 200000 are needed, the real purpose of US military presence in that pivotal Central Asian country is obscured." "The US military is in Afghanistan for two reasons. First to restore and control the world’s largest supply of opium for the world heroin markets and to use the drugs as a geopolitical weapon against opponents, especially Russia. That control of the Afghan drug market is essential for the liquidity of the bankrupt and corrupt Wall Street financial mafia."
"Mexico is expected to lose more than 700,000 jobs this year due to a slumping economy that may decline as much as 7.5%. Almost half of the country’s population lives in poverty, and yet, it is managing to reverse a trend of money that has traditionally flowed from north (the United States) to south.
While no statistics are yet available, plenty of anecdotal information suggests an increasing number of Mexican immigrants in the U.S. are now receiving money from relatives in Mexico, instead of sending it. Unemployment is so bad in migrant communities in the U.S. Southwest that some families south of the border are hurting less than those they know in the United States, causing them to wire whatever money they can.
“It’s something that’s surprising, a symptom of the economic crisis,” Martín Zuvire Lucas, who heads a network of community banks in Oaxaca and other underserved Mexican states, told The New York Times. “We haven’t been able to measure it but we hear of more cases where money is going north.”
"Police are arresting innocent people in order to get their hands on as many DNA samples as possible, senior Government advisers revealed last night. The Human Genetics Commission said the Big Brother tactic was creating a 'spiral of suspicion' among the public. The panel - which contains some of Britain's leading scientists and academics - said officers should no longer routinely take samples at the point of arresting a suspect. They also called for all police - including support staff - to place their own DNA on the national database in a show of solidarity with a public being routinely placed under suspicion. By law, officers are only allowed to make an arrest if they have ' reasonable suspicion' that a person has committed a crime. But the HGC, which has carried out a lengthy review of the merits of the database, said evidence had emerged of police arresting people purely so they could take their DNA."
"With the health care debate preoccupying the mainstream media, it has gone virtually unreported that the Barack Obama administration is quietly supporting renewal of provisions of the George W. Bush-era USA PATRIOT Act that civil libertarians say infringe on basic freedoms. And it is reportedly doing so over the objections of some prominent Democrats. When a panicky Congress passed the act 45 days after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, three contentious parts of the law were scheduled to expire at the end of next month, and opponents of these sections have been pushing Congress to substitute new provisions with substantially strengthened civil liberties protections. But with the apparent approval of the Obama White House and a number of Republicans – and over the objections of liberal Senate Democrats including Russ Feingold of Wisconsin and Dick Durbin of Illinois – the Senate Judiciary Committee has voted to extend the three provisions with only minor changes. Those provisions would leave unaltered the power of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to seize records and to eavesdrop on phone calls and e-mail in the course of counterterrorism investigations."
"WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama met Monday evening with his national security team to finalize a plan to dispatch some 34,000 additional U.S. troops over the next year to what he's called "a war of necessity" in Afghanistan, U.S. officials told McClatchy."
"The Pope, who died five years ago, is being considered for sainthood by the Catholic Church. As part of the Vatican's investigation thousands of documents have been collected and examined by officials from the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. Among them is the testimony of Tobiana Sobodka, a Polish nun of the Sacred Heart of Jesus order, who worked for Pope John Paul in his private Vatican apartments and at his summer residence in Castel Gandolfo near Rome. Sister Sobodka said: "Several times he (Pope John Paul) would put himself through bodily penance. "We would hear it – we were in the next room at Castel Gandolfo. You could hear the sound of the blows when he flagellate himself. He did it when he was still capable of moving on his own."
"The same day they rejected a gay marriage ballot measure, residents of Maine voted overwhelmingly to allow the sale of medical marijuana over the counter at state-licensed dispensaries. Later in the month, the American Medical Association reversed a longtime position and urged the federal government to remove marijuana from Schedule One of the Controlled Substances Act, which equates it with heroin. A few days later, advocates for easing marijuana laws left their biannual strategy conference with plans to press ahead on all fronts -- state law, ballot measures, and court -- in a movement that for the first time in decades appeared to be gaining ground. "This issue is breaking out in a remarkably rapid way now," said Ethan Nadelmann, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance. "Public opinion is changing very, very rapidly."
This "report" from the Washington Post is more thinly diguised psychological conditioning to influence, ie manipulate, public consciousness. Our overlords and their media whores have had decades of practice doing this, and they're masters at it.
What they do is insinuate a priori garbage as actual fact to prod you to believe their made up assumptions. Here's an example - we've all heard, ad nauseum, that Ahmadinejad wants to "wipe Israel off the map", a deliberate mistranslation to demonize Iran and reiterate Israel's permanent state of victimhood status. It doesn't matter how many times it's been pointed out that that's not what Iran's president said, MSM just repeats it again and again as if it was established fact.
In the above screed they want you to believe that there's a sea change in how people view the psychotropic aspects of cannabis. Total bullshit. You and I and just about everybody else have always known marijuana laws have been unjust fascist crap and should never have been instituted in the first place. They're trying to convince the unwary that all of a sudden there's a huge shift in opinion about people getting high and that sometime soon, in a little while, just about there, a majority of useless eaters will probably at some point favor legalization. Whoa.
Wanna know what's really going on? The drug war scam has been very, very lucrative to the scumbags. After all, pretending to pass "laws" protecting the population from drugs and then making sure you have a lock on smuggling those drugs around makes it certain that drug prices stay high for you. You can guarantee yourself huge profits. Posturing as defenders of public morality and health puts a lot of tax money in your pocket while you systematically eliminate your competition. Filling the jails with drug busts gives you a great resume as a staunch defender of justice. Prison populations are great union busting sources of cheap, forced labor. Your police state fantasies come true as you fuck the constitution in the throat.
But there's a problem now. The peasants are restless. Your sweet ride has to change a little because the greatest depression is making people nervous and worried even though Fox is working double overtime to convince them what they're going through is just a minor bump in the road. So what do you do? You legalize some innocuous vegetable material that should never have been made illegal in the first place, stuff that everybody knows is harmless, and pretend that it's a giant leap for mankind.
With this propaganda they want us to think there's this huge shift in public perception and there isn't one. Support for complete legalization has always been overwhelming. This is a tactical policy change by our would be controllers to do certain things. For one, it's impossible anymore to maintain the illusion that pot is harmful. For another, they've always known that getting high will pacify, and they know the mood in this country, especially after eight years of Bush mob hell on earth and the largest financial theft in human history, is getting extremely volitile. Our overlords would like nothing better than to see the rabble crashing on the sofa in front of the tube rather than organizing or out on the streets raising cain. They've apparently decided that now it's more important to let the great unwashed get high than to keep using prohibition as a money making machine and a stepping stone to fascism.
After all, they've already got their police state and are going to fill the jails with political prisoners instead of stoners, so now they want to tax the fuck out of legalized weed, dude.
"For months we've heard about General McChrystal's "counter-insurgency" strategy in Afghanistan, involving tens of thousands more troops. We've heard much less about the US government's "counter-insurgency" strategy for America. But it's America -- not Afghanistan -- where the strategy is already in place, and where the real action may take place. According to one report, which documents the "unraveling" of US society, "the demand for guns and ammunition has hit a record high and the gun industry cannot produce enough bullets to keep up with orders. American's are arming themselves to the teeth! In the past year, 100 new armed militia groups have been formed, as militia members have doubled in numbers. Federal authorities are gravely concerned about the "uptick in militia activities." One federal authority recently said, "All it's lacking is a spark. I think it's only a matter of time before you see threats and violence."
Contingency plans for martial law were signed by President Bush just before the election in November 2008. These plans, written in bureaucratic detail, have appeared on the Internet in what seems to be a leak of classified government documents. (US Domestic Control Measures.pdf by Bradley Moscrip) Giving various reasons that would justify martial law (for example, "the refusal of the population to pay or unusual difficulty to collect rent, taxes, or loan payments"), the plans call for the suspension of the Constitution; the permanent confiscation of all firearms (while telling the gun owners that the confiscation is temporary); and the rounding up of large numbers of the "indigenous population" in detention camps. Noting that there are presently 600 detention camps (soon to be expanded to 1500, generally in rural uninhabited areas), one of the documents provides the location of 94 of these detention sites in 28 states."
The revolutionary war began with an attempt at gun confiscation.
"The Israeli Prison Administration at the infamous Negev detention camp decided to banish and punish wild cats for befriending Palestinian political prisoners and providing them with light services.
It seems that imprisoning the detainees under conditions that violate the international law and the Fourth Geneva conventions is not enough, it seems torture, medical negligence and solitary confinement is not enough, an issue that pushed the prison administration to punish cats for befriending the detainees, and 'providing them with some services.
The detainees in the Negev detention camp are taking care of some cats that entered the detention camp, in the Negev desert, through the barbed wires, and are feeding them although they do not have sufficient food.
The fact the detainees have some cats as 'wild pets’ or 'friends’ bothered the Prison Administration to the level of decided that cats are not allowed."
"Israeli soldiers manning the detention camp even placed a cat in solitary confinement for a while after suspecting it was helping them, and of course for befriending them."
I had a feeling that they just wanted to delay the inevitable long enough to get through one last holiday season, and to have enough time to completely loot every last dime they could before total collapse.
"Many of my friends who have been receiving my e-mail alerts over the last two years have lamented that in recent weeks I have not commented on the state of the global economy. I appreciate their anxiety but they forget that I am not a stock market analyst who is paid to write articles to lure investors back into the market. My website is free and I do not sell a financial newsletter so there is no need for me to churn out daily forecasts or analysis. However, when the data is compelling and supports an inevitable trend, it is time for another review. This Red Alert is to enable visitors to my website to take appropriate actions to safeguard their wealth and welfare of their families in the coming months. Since the last quarter of 2008, unrelenting currency warfare has been waged by the key global economies and while this competition thus far has been non-antagonistic, it will soon be antagonistic because the inherent differences are irreconcilable. The consequences to the global economy will be devastating and for the ordinary people, massive unemployment and social unrest are assured. The policy-makers of these countries faced with the total collapse of the international financial architecture have concluded that the solution, the only solution is quantitative easing (i.e. massive injection of liquidity) to salvage the “too big to fail” banks and reflate their depressed economies. This is best reflected in Bernanke’s candid remark that, “the US government has a technology, called the printing press (or today, its electronic equivalent), that allows it to produce as many US dollars as it wishes at essentially no cost”.
"OTTAWA – A batch of swine flu vaccine is being pulled back for investigation after it appeared to cause higher rates of severe allergic reactions than other lots. GlaxoSmithKline Inc., which is producing the Canadian order of H1N1 influenza vaccine at its plant in Ste-Foy, Que., said it asked provincial and territorial health authorities Wednesday to stop using doses from a specific lot shipment distributed late last month. "(GlaxoSmithKline) is taking this cautionary action because (the Public Health Agency of Canada) has received a higher than expected number of reports of anaphylaxis in this lot number compared to other lots," company spokeswoman Megan Spoore said in a statement."
anaphylaxis - Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction disorder that can be life-threatening without prompt treatment.
"If anyone were contemplating creating “fake” gold bars, tungsten [at roughly $10 per pound] would be the metal of choice since it has the exact same density as gold making a fake bar salted with tungsten indistinguishable from a solid gold bar by simply weighing it."
" When the news of tungsten “salted” gold bars in Hong Kong first surfaced, many people who I am acquainted with automatically assumed that these bars were manufactured in China – because China is generally viewed as “the knock-off capital of the world”.
Here’s what I now understand really happened:
The amount of “salted tungsten” gold bars in question was allegedly between 5,600 and 5,700 – 400 oz – good delivery bars [roughly 60 metric tonnes].
This was apparently all highly orchestrated by an extremely well financed criminal operation.
Within mere hours of this scam being identified – Chinese officials had many of the perpetrators in custody.
And here’s what the Chinese allegedly uncovered:
Roughly 15 years ago – during the Clinton Administration [think Robert Rubin, Sir Alan Greenspan and Lawrence Summers] – between 1.3 and 1.5 million 400 oz tungsten blanks were allegedly manufactured by a very high-end, sophisticated refiner in the USA [more than 16 Thousand metric tonnes]. Subsequently, 640,000 of these tungsten blanks received their gold plating and WERE shipped to Ft. Knox and remain there to this day. I know folks who have copies of the original shipping docs with dates and exact weights of “tungsten” bars shipped to Ft. Knox."

Solely to make the occupation easier for the occupiers while lives will most assuredly just get worse for Afghans. State terror has done this since forever - forcing Indians onto reservations to 'strategic hamlets' in Vietnam to the concentration camp the US constructed for the people of Fallujah in Iraq. These days they couch it in terms of "security of the people". Rest assured this is practice for us.
"THE inhabitants of combat zones in southern Afghanistan may face biometric tests in a new initiative to prevent the Taliban from infiltrating villages. After studying counter-insurgency methods employed from the Boer war to the conflict in Iraq, British commanders are drawing up plans for “gated communities” from which the enemy can be excluded by identity checks. The checks may involve fingerprints, retina scans or even DNA tests. Brigadier James Cowan, the new commander of British forces in Afghanistan, revealed last week how far the campaign in Helmand is being rethought. “In counter-insurgency you are not here to beat the enemy. You are here to win the people — because the enemy will always be able to regenerate,” he said in the first newspaper interview he has given in his new role. “What you have to be able to do is give people the security they crave.”
"ScienceDaily (Nov. 20, 2009) — Cigarettes are "widely contaminated" with bacteria, including some known to cause disease in people, concludes a new international study conducted by a University of Maryland environmental health researcher and microbial ecologists at the Ecole Centrale de Lyon in France. The research team describes the study as the first to show that "cigarettes themselves could be the direct source of exposure to a wide array of potentially pathogenic microbes among smokers and other people exposed to secondhand smoke." Still, the researchers caution that the public health implications are unclear and urge further research. "We were quite surprised to identify such a wide variety of human bacterial pathogens in these products," says lead researcher Amy R. Sapkota, an assistant professor in the University of Maryland's School of Public Health. "The commercially-available cigarettes that we tested were chock full of bacteria, as we had hypothesized, but we didn't think we'd find so many that are infectious in humans," explains Sapkota, who holds a joint appointment with the University's Maryland Institute for Applied Environmental Health and the department of epidemiology and biostatistics."
"(CNN) -- Peruvian authorities say they have arrested four members of a gang that specialized in selling to European labs fat obtained from dead humans. Officials are investigating the disappearance of at last 60 people they believe were killed by gang members in two mountainous states in central Peru, lead prosecutor Jorge Sanz Quiroz said Friday. The four suspects have been charged with murder in the September slaying of a Peruvian man, the prosecutor said. "They killed to obtain human fat because there were European laboratories that would pay them," Sanz Quiroz said. The suspects told authorities they were paid $15,000 for a liter (about 1 quart) of human fat."

With Israelis involved in trafficking human eggs and organs, you've got to wonder where those "European laboratories" are located.
"On November 9, the New Yorker magazine published a lengthy article by veteran correspondent Seymour Hersh dealing with the considerable nervousness in US ruling circles over the security of Pakistan’s arsenal of between 80 and 100 nuclear weapons. Hersh’s sources told him that the primary fear was not a Taliban takeover, but a mutiny by anti-American Islamist tendencies inside the Pakistani armed forces, in which they attempt to seize all or parts of the country’s nuclear arsenal. Like many of Hersh’s exposés, the article uses information leaked by unnamed high-level sources to make public an aspect of US foreign policy causing concerns in ruling circles. In this case, the primary motive appears to be to press for greater Pakistani guarantees over its nuclear weapons and more intrusive American monitoring and involvement. Hersh alleged that US officials have pushed over the past eight years for an “understanding” with their Pakistani counterparts that American forces can enter Pakistan to secure its nuclear arsenal in the event of a direct threat. According to Hersh’s sources, a special unit drawn from several agencies is on four hours’ notice to deploy to Pakistan from Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. The objective would be to seize the triggers that are needed to arm the weapons, and fly the devices out of the country. Pakistan reportedly keeps its warheads and nuclear triggers at separate locations. A deployment nearly took place mid-year, Hersh was told, following an alert that a Pakistani “nuclear component had gone astray”. The special American unit had arrived in Dubai before the reports were deemed to be a false alarm and the mission called off."
But you know how to tell our overseers' true intentions. Just believe exactly the opposite of what they say.
"Hersh’s article provoked a barrage of denials, especially in Pakistan. The Pakistani foreign ministry denounced the claims as “preposterous”. The military labeled them “absurd”. The US State Department added that the US has “no intention of seizing Pakistani nuclear weapons or material” and stated its “confidence in the ability of the Pakistani government to provide adequate security”.
"Israelis talk often and loudly about their desires for peace. But its never been clear precisely what peace concept it is they desire. In particular, Israeli notions of peace have never gone so far as to grant the Palestinians the same national rights that Israelis claim for themselves. Well, according to a new poll by Israeli National News (disclaimer: its a right-wing rag, sample size "more than 6,400″), a majority of Israelis are clear about what kind of "peace" they desire.
53.2% of surveyed Israelis say the "solution" to the conflict was the ethnic cleansing ("transfer") of Palestinians out of occupied Palestine and into other neighboring Arab countries. This was the most popular option among all alternatives, including the two state solution, Jordanian citizenship in the West Bank, status quo, etc. For comparative purposes, only 30.8% of Israelis support the "two-states for two peoples" framework for peace.
Keep this information in mind next to you hear Israeli hasbara about "partners for peace" or when someone tries to claim that the two-state solution is the only "realistic" solution to the conflict. If only those Palestinians would "recognize Israel’s right to exist", then everything would be SO much better."

"Three officers arrested Chasse, 42, on Sept. 17, 2006, after one of the officers said Chasse appeared to be urinating in the street. There was no evidence that he had urinated in the street. Police said he ran when they approached. They chased him, knocked him to the ground and struggled to handcuff him. Medics called to the scene did not take him to a hospital, saying Chasse's vital signs were normal. But jail staff refused to book him because of his physical condition. Chasse, who suffered from schizophrenia, died while being taken to the hospital in a police car. The medical examiner said he died of broad-based blunt-force trauma to the chest. Had Chasse received proper medical attention, he probably would have lived, according to Dr. Karen Gunson, the state medical examiner, answering questions in a deposition. The autopsy found Chasse suffered 26 breaks to 16 ribs, some of which punctured his left lung, and 46 separate abrasions or contusions. In the autopsy report, Gunson made no mention of "excited delirium" as she has in other Oregon cases."
"If you’re frustrated by poor service at a restaurant, think twice before you decide to not tip. You may be in for a bit more than just a dirty look from the waiter. "Nobody, nobody wants to be forced to pay a tip or be arrested for terrible service," Leslie Pope said when her happy hour ended in handcuffs. Pope and John Wagner were hauled away by police and charged with theft for not paying the mandatory 18 percent gratuity totaling $16 after eating at the Lehigh Pub in Bethlehem, Pa. with six friends. Pope claimed that they had to wait nearly an hour for their order and that she had to get napkins and silverware for the table herself. “At this point I became very annoyed because I had already gone up to the bar myself to have my soda refilled because the waitress never came back,” Pope said. After the $73 bill came, the group paid for food, drinks, and tax but refused to pay the tip. After explaining the bad service to the bartender in charge, Pope claimed he took their money and called police. The couple was handcuffed and placed in the back of a police car."
"Purdue police have arrested a student in connection with a suspicious package found Thursday morning in the university's Visitor Information Center. Roy C. Sun, 21, a senior in the College of Engineering from Andover, Mass., faces preliminary charges of terroristic mischief and possession of stolen property. An employee at the center, 504 Northwestern Ave., which also houses Parking Services, alerted police at about 7:50 a.m. about a suspicious box left in a hallway by three college-age men. Police evacuated about 10 people from the building and used a portable X-ray machine to identify the box's contents. The box contained a wheel look, a Purdue parking ticket and $20, Detective Sgt. Matt Rosenbarger said."
The late mythologist Joseph Campbell and others stressed the Power of Myth. He maintained that rather than just fanciful fairy tales, mythology held valuable information that "could serve in the role of a personal mentor, in that its stories provide a psychological road map for the finding of oneself in the labyrinth of the complex modern world."
Myth and folklore also hold physical clues. Ancients were kind enough to imbed deep understanding of the physical world into symbology and metaphor as a way to communicate with generations far in the future, because they knew languages will eventually be lost but imagery and metaphor transcend language. Tales will always be told around a campfire; kids will always grow up teaching their kids the stories they learned as little ones. A wolf is a wolf to everybody.
And that's the way it is with garlic. It's always been considered a superfood by enlightened cultures and it's benefit to health was enshrined in superstition to ward off all sorts of unpleasantries like vampires so it's beneficial qualities could help people all the way through their stupid periods. As in the dark ages, or modern day western culture. It's undeniably extremely healthy:
"Beyond superstition, modern research has confirmed what our ancestors believed about the health benefits of garlic. In 1858, Louis Pasteur documented that garlic kills bacteria, with one millimeter or raw garlic juice proving as effective as 60 milligrams of penicillin. During World War II, when penicillin and sulfa drugs were scarce, the British and Russian armies used diluted garlic solutions as an antiseptic to disinfect open wounds and prevent gangrene. Though not completely understood at the time, today’s research has confirmed that garlic’s healing powers stem from hundreds of volatile sulfur compounds found in the vegetable, including allicin, (which gives garlic its offensive odor), alliin, cycroalliin, and diallyldisulphide.
The allicin in raw, crushed garlic has been shown to kill 23 types of bacteria, including salmonella and staphylococcus. Heated garlic gives off another compound, diallyldisulphide-oxide, which has been shown to lower serum cholesterol by preventing clotting in the arteries. Vitamins in garlic, such as A, B, and C, stimulate the body to fight carcinogens and get rid of toxins, and may even aid in preventing certain types of cancer, such as stomach cancer. Garlic's sulfur compounds can regulate blood sugar metabolism, stimulate and detoxify the liver, and stimulate the blood circulation and the nervous system."
I'll testify to the magic root. I've eaten several cloves of raw garlic virtually every day with a meal for the past fifteen years or so and I'm not lying when I say I haven't had a cold or flu in a decade. Vampires seem scarce although Foxified zombies are everywhere.
"It always struck me as odd that just before all wars start, the people who have been asked to wage these wars say they don’t want to fight, and insist they want peace. And as a result, all the politicians say they’re for peace, and would never get us into war, especially one in which we had no obvious stake. Then the wars start. Just before World War I, Woodrow Wilson was the peace candidate, but later lit the fuse that killed 25 million people. Franklin Roosevelt said he’d keep us out of war just before he was elected to a third term, and history has long ago revealed how he engineered Pearl Harbor to get us into WW II, which killed 57 million. Just before World War I, the sentiment in America was decidedly pro-German, and more the half of all the immigrants coming to this developing land WERE German. Nobody wanted to get involved in a European war. But the media, owned by the same people who were making the weapons, convinced us, apparently, by suddenly and savagely telling hair-raising false stories about the Germans.
This is the great fact Americans continue to ignore. Instead of understanding that bankers create the wars, we prefer to believe the prejudicial hate speak that emanates from American media that our enemies are “krauts,” “gooks,” and “ragheads,” without remembering, as the great suppressed writers have told us, that the folks who control the money also control everything else. Slowly, we are learning that our real enemies are really the misanthropes making those statements, the bigwigs who control the flow of real wealth with imaginary rules that are nothing but blatant crime schemes. We are learning that these anti-human billionaires — whose income is derived entirely from legalized crime — are the true enemies of all civilized people."
"For the second time in just over a week, Fox News is coming under fire for misusing old news footage. The latest flap is leading some people to charge that the cable news network is intentionally misleading its audience, while Fox claims a "production error." Wednesday's incident occurred when Fox News host Gregg Jarrett mentioned that a Sarah Palin appearance and book signing in Grand Rapids, Michigan had a massive turnout. As footage rolled of a smiling and waving Palin amidst a throng of fans, Jarrett noted that the former Republican vice-presidential candidate is "continuing to draw huge crowds while she's promoting her brand-new book,'' adding that the images being shown were "some of the pictures just coming in to us.... The lines earlier had formed this morning." However, the video used in the segment was from a 2008 McCain/Palin campaign rally. In response to the minor uproar that arose after clips of Jarrett's report hit the Internet, Fox senior vice-president of news Michael Clemente issued an initial statement saying, "This was a production error in which the copy editor changed a script and didn't alert the control room to update the video."
Oh you motherfucking bullshit artists, caught yet again with your lying shenanigans and all you can do is default to your stupid prevarications.
You know something, fools, as a propaganda operation you're a sick joke. What you're doing was established by filthy predecessors back in the 80s, during the Reagan mob years. It's nothing new; it's tired and old and doesn't work anything near as well as you think it does.
What all the lying vermin in your political operation do is just make shit up as they go along for political expediency, knowing that the only thing the mouthbreathers pay attention to are the headlines and not the retractions on page 27. Your loudmouth whoring shitbags spout any crap that they think might get them a bigger payday or more likely, your presstitutes broadcast what they're told to spew.
Faux wants us to think only dems are cocksuckers
You idiots think this scam still works, that making shit up will fool enough people to justify continuing this stupid crap. But hey dirtbags, guess what? This is the computer age, and it stopped working long enough ago so that you're a running joke .
Keep it up. Apparently you don't even know how asinine your filthy message seems. And that's fine because we can use a chuckle now and then.
Iran, Iraq, all the sand niggers are the same.
Case in point, right here. This preening poser was brought on Hannity's cartoon production soley to flap her lips and pretend that her word soup actually means something. She sits there and like, totally forgets the talking points she was coached about, saying Iraq instead of Iran. It was more important to let her flap than to even gently correct her. Because you scumbags know that a sizable majority of your inbred, drooling audience doesn't know the difference and couldn't give a fuck anyway. So it's far more important to let her drone on with idiocy than to correct her in front of them.
By the way, this is how douchebags move books, a whopping 2 days after publication date:

"Fox News just apologized for showing the wrong book cover during a segment about Sarah Palin's new memoir, Going Rogue. Instead, they twice showed the cover of Going Rouge, a collection of essays mocking the former governor that came out the same day as Palin's memoir."
Stupid in the sense that opponents of drying your laundry on lines outside are true idiots. Stupid in the way anti breastfeeders are. What it boils down to, of course, is money. Opponents are afraid of loss of property value and hide behind "asthetics". I for one like seeing clothes on lines because I've done it all my life and I know the pleasures and utility of doing it. Piss on them. Laundry isn't the only thing we can hang.
"PERKASIE, Pennsylvania (Reuters) – Carin Froehlich pegs her laundry to three clotheslines strung between trees outside her 18th-century farmhouse, knowing that her actions annoy local officials who have asked her to stop. Froehlich is among the growing number of people across America fighting for the right to dry their laundry outside against a rising tide of housing associations who oppose the practice despite its energy-saving green appeal. Although there are no formal laws in this southeast Pennsylvania town against drying laundry outside, a town official called Froehlich to ask her to stop drying clothes in the sun. And she received two anonymous notes from neighbors saying they did not want to see her underwear flapping about. "They said it made the place look like trailer trash," she said, in her yard across the street from a row of neat, suburban houses. "They said they didn't want to look at my 'unmentionables.'" Froehlich says she hangs her underwear inside. The effervescent 54-year-old is one of a growing number of Americans demanding the right to dry laundry on clotheslines despite local rules and a culture that frowns on it. Their interests are represented by Project Laundry List, a group that argues people can save money and reduce carbon emissions by not using their electric or gas dryers, according to the group's executive director, Alexander Lee. Widespread adoption of clotheslines could significantly reduce U.S. energy consumption, argued Lee, who said dryer use accounts for about 6 percent of U.S. residential electricity use. Florida, Utah, Maine, Vermont, Colorado, and Hawaii have passed laws restricting the rights of local authorities to stop residents using clotheslines. Another five states are considering similar measures, said Lee, 35, a former lawyer who quit to run the non-profit group. His principal opponents are the housing associations such as condominiums and townhouse communities that are home to an estimated 60 million Americans, or about 20 percent of the population. About half of those organizations have 'no hanging' rules, Lee said, and enforce them with fines."
"According to the poll, 55 percent of adults don't want to get the swine flu vaccine, and don't plan to get a shot. Another one in five say they want to get inoculated but haven't taken any steps to do so, 14 percent want a shot and have tried to get it but have been unsuccessful. Just 7 percent have been inoculated for H1N1."
"LONDON (Reuters) - More than half of Britons being offered vaccination against pandemic H1N1 flu are turning it down because they fear side-effects or think the virus is too mild to bother, a survey of doctors showed on Wednesday. Many of the 107 family doctors polled by Britain's Pulse magazine said there was widespread resistance from patients and on average only 46 percent of those offered the vaccination agree to have it. Doctors reported particular difficulties in persuading pregnant women to be vaccinated against the virus, according to Pulse, a trade newspaper for doctors."
"Pontiac -- Nearly 35 years after taxpayers spent $55.7 million building the Pontiac Silverdome and a year after a $20 million sale fell through, city officials have sold the arena once called the most desirable property in Oakland County. The price: $583,000."
The jig is up. Cat's out of the bag. Pretty fucking obvious if you ask me. Fascist manipulators have hoodwinked the country into endless war when they themselves finance and supply our supposed enemies. Really, how much more evidence do you need? There won't be any whistleblowers. Whistleblowers have short life spans. But there's so much in the public domain now that it's irrefutable. And of course, it makes sense if the bottom line trumps everything else including morals, humanity and so called patriotism. War is business and business is very, very good. Just make up enemies. Dumbed down americans will believe anything and love a good scare. Hell, they'll even send their kids to get their limbs blown off for absolutely nothing, too bad more and more of the kids realize they've been bullshitted only when it's too late. It didn't start with 9/11 but that's when they went pedal to the metal. Too many of us were just too fucking stupid and let them get away with it. Now the fascists are addicted. Funny, though, as the scam goes on the fascists get clumsier. Maybe they think we're really so stupid they don't even need to put much effort into the lies. Maybe they know their end game is here so who gives a shit? In any event it's in our face now and can't be denied. Perpetual war is a filthy lie.
