Catholic Church Absolves It's Sins By Declaring Patron Saint Of Kiddie Diddling
"An Australian nun who will be canonised by the Pope next month should be made the patron saint of clerical sex abuse victims, Catholics have suggested.
Mary MacKillop, who was born to Scottish parents, worked in often harsh conditions in the Outback and will become Australia's first saint during a special Mass at the Vatican on Oct 17.
An Australian documentary due to be aired a week before her canonisation claims that she was persecuted by the Catholic Church for denouncing a priest, Father Patrick Keating, who was abusing children.
In 1871 MacKillop, then 29, was excommunicated by her bishop in South Australia for five months but it has never been clear exactly why.
The priest was disciplined but then simply moved back to his native Ireland, where he took up a job in a new parish.
The claims that she was shunned by the Church for speaking out against paedophile priests have led to calls from some Catholics for her to be made the unofficial patron saint of victims of clerical sex abuse around the world."
Jeebus Rules And You Will Submit To Get Along
"An anonymous cadet at the US Air Force Academy (USAFA ) spoke out against alleged religious discrimination at the school last week, saying that some cadets must pretend to be evangelical Christians in order to maintain standing among their peers and superiors. In an email to the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), the whistleblower stated that he is part of an "underground group" of about 100 cadets who cannot rely on proper channels to confront evangelical pressure.
The email, published by Veterans Today, applauds the MRFF from the "underground" and indicates that the academy is "literally overrun with Christian conservative fanatics."

flashback - Olympic construction in Beijing leaves thousands homeless
"Governments and human rights organisations across the world are hoping that the Olympic Games will open up China and further the progress of individual freedom, but behind this facade lurks a sinister element to the Olympic hysteria that is getting little attention.
The demolition and relocation of homes to make way for the city's Olympic village has been occurring at a staggering rate, leaving hundreds of thousands of Chinese people homeless and frequently without sufficient compensation."
flashback Mexico City 1968 - "In October 1967, in the lead-up to the 1968 Summer Games, thousands of Mexican students mounted a mass protest against the government’s lavish Olympic spending, with millions of dollars moved from the social services budget to urban and national “re-imaging” projects. The student protest was violently suppressed by Mexican army and paramilitary, with hundreds of students massacred and thousands more arrested and beaten."
flashback Seoul 1988 - "For purposes of Olympic “beautification”, huge numbers of the city’s poorest residents had their homes destroyed. Traditional working-class communities were demolished to make way for middle-class high-rise residential buildings. The Asian Coalition for Housing Rights documented millions of forced evictions – the most extensive any city had experienced in the 1970s and 1980s. Displaced people, as “urban squatters” in central Seoul, had their shelters torn down because they were near the Olympic torch route and therefore visible to the international media. Using the same rationale, the government demolished “slum” housing that was in sight of main roads, Olympic facilities and hotels."

How Bad Is It?
"The financial situation is so bad in one western Pennsylvania city that even its police dog has been laid off.
Jeannette City Council on Tuesday voted to lay off nine workers of the city's 47 workers effective Oct. 5. They include three of the city's 12 police, including Officer Justin Scalzo who handles the city's drug-sniffing dog, Wando.
Police Chief Brad Shepler said the layoffs come at a time when the city is seeing a boom in drug trafficking. Shepler's department is also losing its two parking enforcement officers and a secretary.
The other layoffs involved trash collectors and public works employees.
The city has a projected $440,000 budget shortfall. Some of the workers could be called back if finances improve."

And You Thought Armistice Day Really Meant Something
"The First World War will officially end on Sunday, 92 years after the guns fell silent, when Germany pays off the last chunk of reparations imposed on it by the Allies.
The final payment of £59.5 million, writes off the crippling debt that was the price for one world war and laid the foundations for another.
Germany was forced to pay the reparations at the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 as compensation to the war-ravaged nations of Belgium and France and to pay the Allies some of the costs of waging what was then the bloodiest conflict in history, leaving nearly ten million soldiers dead."
The initial sum agreed upon for war damages in 1919 was 226 billion Reichsmarks, a sum later reduced to 132 billion, £22 billion at the time.
The bill would have been settled much earlier had Adolf Hitler not reneged on reparations during his reign.
Hatred of the settlement agreed at Versailles, which crippled Germany as it tried to shape itself into a democracy following armistice, was of significant importance in propelling the Nazis to power."
That, and Royal Dutch Shell, I G Farben, the Harrimans and Wall Street.
Activists Release Tortured Flesh
"DUBLIN — The roads and rivers of northwest Ireland are suddenly lined with mink.
Managers at Anderson's Mink Farm said Wednesday that many of their cages and fences were cut and opened over the weekend, freeing an estimated 5,000 animals into the wilds of County Donegal. About 28,000 others declined the invitation to bolt for freedom.
More than 100 already have been recaptured by hunters using cage traps, while several hundred others have been run over and killed. Drivers have reported seeing groups of the farm-reared animals standing, dazzled by headlights, in the middle of busy roads.
One of the farm's directors, Connie Anderson, blamed animal rights activists for invading the farm in the early hours of Sunday. He declined to explain why it took the farm so long to raise the public alarm.
"These people are animal liberation terrorists and had no thought for the mink or for the damage that will be done to other wildlife in the area," Anderson said."

Student opens fire at University of Texas, then kills himself
"A student disguised with a ski mask and armed with an AK-47 assault rifle terrorized the University of Texas at Austin on Tuesday, firing a number of shots on campus before killing himself on the sixth floor of the main library, authorities said."
The UT campus happens to be the site of the Texas Tower sniping mass murder by Charles Whitman in 1966.
Also yesterday a prominent gun advocate, author of "More Guns, Less Crime", happened to be scheduled to give a lecture at the UT law school. The talk was cancelled.
Back in 1999 the NRA was going to hold it's annual convention in Denver. Several days before that a mass killing happened to take place eleven miles away at Columbine High School. The convention was scaled back amid protests.
The Dunblane massacre happened to set the stage for virtual complete gun confiscation in Britain. (By the way, documents about that incident have been sealed for 100 years, Kennedy assassination style) The Port Arthur massacre in Tasmania gave the Australian government the same excuse that justified disarming the people on that continent.
Yeah I'm saying the timing in all these incidents, and a whole lot more of them, is suspicious as hell. More than just the timing, really, if you do some background you'll find a lot of the shooters couldn't have done what they supposedly did (Martin Bryant, the Australian patsy, has an IQ of 66), the shooters had histories of being drugged, the shooters had military spook families, they exhibited all the classic symptoms of mind control ("You've asked us to say, 'We have caught the sniper like a duck in a noose"), they were aided and abetted. I'm not saying all the shootings had all the above, I'm saying all the shootings had at least some of the above. And I'd stress that the incidents are pre planned to accomplish goals that work towards an agenda.
Want to turn the nation's police precincts into paramilitary outposts with heavily armed SWAT squads and military hardware? Stage a choreographed "bank robbery".
"Local patrol officers at the time were typically armed with 9 mm or .38 Special pistols on their person, with some having a 12-gauge shotgun available in their cars. Phillips and Mătăsăreanu carried fully automatic rifles, with ammunition capable of penetrating police body armor, and wore military grade body armor of their own. Since the police handguns could not penetrate the bank robbers' body armor, the patrol officers' efforts were ineffective. SWAT eventually arrived with weapons that could penetrate and several officers also appropriated AR-15 rifles from a nearby firearms dealer. The incident sparked debate on the appropriate firepower for patrol officers to have available in similar situations in the future.
Watch in amazement as these guys walked and drove back and forth, blasting away at anything that moved, with police munitions bouncing off their body armor, all conveniently caught by a myriad number of cameras. In the days that followed the media obligingly repeated the message du jour - the beleaguered cops had to raid the local sporting goods store for adequate weapons. Voila! SWAT teams for overdue library books.
It's not like our overlords don't manipulate things in other ways, for other reasons. It seems choke points in our society, the transportation hubs, were high on their list of objectives in their war on the american people. They wanted to get us used to cringing and cowering and accepting their complete control. So we get the shoe bomber. Remember 9/11 just before elections peasants, here's your obligatory Osama audio. 9/11 itself. Got to find justification for continuing the phony wars for oil and drugs so cue the spooks to step up the bombings to be blamed on the arabs/Taleban.
But it's the shootings that create the most impact, because it's here in our own country and it can be up close and personal, like the seemingly endless school murders in the 90s. It's so easy for them to pull it off and incidents can be used in so many ways to yank our emotional chains and further their filthy agendas.
By the way, this latest odd UT shooting isn't without it's peculiarities. Aside from just making noise to scare people, the guy smiled and waved at passersby. There were reports of a second gunman, which brings to mind a couple of consistancies in most of these false flag events - shooters never act alone and the manipulators usually want them winding up dead by killing themselves. Although that may just be the cover story they want us to believe:
"Tooley was carrying an AK-47 assault rifle, and began firing it on campus as police began chasing him. In the end Colton Tooley took his own life with the weapon. Luckily he was apprehended swiftly, before he was able to perhaps harm other students in the vicinity."
added - Here come the oddities.

Entire Gulf Communities Sickened
"An emergency survey conducted door-to-door in coastal Alabama confirmed elevated levels of depression and stress following the oil spill and also detected possible effects, such as respiratory ailments, according to a preliminary report."
"•At least half of the households queried in both counties had at least one member experiencing respiratory issues within the past 30 days. Most commonly mentioned was nasal congestion."
Censored Gulf alert: Entire La. communities where vomiting blood
"Earlier in the operation, EPA adviser and whistleblower, Hugh Kaufman stated that millions of people would experience internal bleeding because "that is what Corexit is suppose to do." (See; Dupre, Censored Gulf news: People bleeding internally, millions poisoned says 'EPA whistleblower')
"ORANGE BEACH, Ala. — Councilman Jeff Silvers receives phone calls in the middle of the night. The citizens on the line tell him that BP is spraying oil dispersant over Perdido Pass “from an airplane with no lights,” he said, or that workers on boats are covertly dumping it into the water."
"A frequent concern is reports and rumors of toxic dispersant in the air.
Councilwoman Pattisue Carranza, a pharmacist, said that she had seen more and more people seeking prescriptions and medications this summer for “thick throats.”
There’s something, she said, that’s “making people behave differently” and “making people cough and giving people headaches and nausea.”
All summer we've seen the corp/gov strategy at work - sink the oil with millions of gallons of brutally toxic chemicals, cover up the beaches, obfuscate, deny and lie. Whether it's agenda 21 (and bio engineered organisms that are mutating does give one pause for thought) or simply to protect BP from liability, it doesn't matter. This insane ecocide is being drawn out and made orders of magnitude worse by the reptiles. The cover up about how bad this really is continues, although the first big storm is going to blow the lid off the silence and there's a giant one forming in the western gulf today. I would have been long gone from the coast by now.

US Soldier Describes Thrill Kill of Innocent Afghans

Woman Gets The Vapors Upon Seeing People Exercising Their Constitutional Rights
"The Madison Police Department (MPD) has conducted a review of an incident that took place this past Saturday night at Culver's Frozen Custard restaurant, 4301 East Towne Blvd. Based upon the further investigation, Chief Noble Wray has concluded the appropriate charge for all 5 armed individuals is Disorderly Conduct (DC). Accordingly, DC citations will be issued, and Obstructing a Peace Officer tickets given to two will be rescinded.
Officers were dispatched to the restaurant around 6:50 p.m. after a 62-year old Madison woman called 911. She had just observed several men with handguns in holsters enter the crowded Culver's restaurant. In her initial statement to officers, she stated" I didn't know what the law was, and I thought I should at least call so the police can come and check it out cause I didn't want to be that one person that saw guns and didn't call, and then have something terrible happen". In a follow-up interview with detectives, she further stated that she thought it was very odd that these individuals with guns would be at a family place. She noted she felt somewhat "rattled" and also "felt uneasy" about the subjects having the handguns at the family restaurant. She went on to say that they all appeared calm, but noted "people who shoot up restaurants also look calm before it happens." She did state that she was very concerned that if she didn't make the call and something did happen, she would feel horrible."
Here's audio of the 911 call.
Eight cops show up and harass five men bothering nobody, sitting at a picnic table. It's perfectly legal to open carry sidearms in Wisconsin, but because of this woman's unreasonable "feelings" the thugs felt obliged to charge all five with the default bullshit charge of disorderly conduct. "Obstructing a police officer" is another blanket fig leaf the dirty badges will charge you with, even if it's your face obstructing a baton.
It's way past time that people grew up.
Madison should now be inundated with citizens exercising their right to carry weapons. They should be everywhere it's legal to do so - in restaurants, department stores, on the streets, in cop shops asking directions.
Paul Blart Switches To Roller Skates
"In a bizarre twist, James Heselden, owner of the company that makes the two-wheeled Segway personal transporter, died Sunday morning in a Segway-related mishap -- just before the scheduled release of a study suggesting injuries related to the vehicles may be on the rise.
According to a witness report, Heselden, 62, apparently fell off a 30-foot cliff into a river while riding a Segway near his home in West Yorkshire, UK. Police found Heselden's body and a Segway personal transporter in the river. He was prounced dead at the scene and foul play is not suspected, West Yorkshire Police told reporters.
A short statement posted on the Segway company website noted that Heselden "died in a tragic accident."
Environmental Criminals Buy Their Own Reality
"What does it take to get a half dozen travel writers to Navarre Beach?
This weekend, it took a check from BP and a white stretch limousine.
Six travel writers — chauffeured around in a limo — are on Navarre Beach this weekend to get the word out that this summer's BP oil spill is over, and the beach, along with the rest of Santa Rosa County, is open for tourism.
Using money from BP, the Santa Rosa County Tourist Development Council hosted a familiarization — or "fam" — tour for select out-of-town reporters, showing them the pristine beaches and other assets of the county.
"We've had travel writers come often, but this is an actual 'fam' trip, a planned package of events to show them the whole county," said Kate Wilkes, executive director of the council. "Having the money from BP enabled us to do this."
Think for a second these whores will write about the dead fish, oil covered up by sand trucked in at night or the gulf residents dropping like diseased flies?
9/11 Fairy Tale Gets Even Stranger
"Radio transmitters that are carried aboard aircraft and that are supposed to activate only in the event of the aircraft crashing went off in the New York area several minutes before the two planes hit the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. In events that, according to the official account of 9/11, should have been impossible, emergency locator transmitters (ELTs), which are intended to help locate crashed aircraft by broadcasting a distinctive signal, were activated over two minutes before American Airlines Flight 11 hit the north WTC tower and over four minutes before United Airlines Flight 175 hit the South Tower. And yet no ELTs went off at the times these planes hit the towers, when we might have expected them to have been activated."
"ELT SHOULD ONLY GO OFF IN EVENT OF A CRASH
An emergency locator transmitter is a battery-operated radio transmitter carried by aircraft, which can emit a distinctive signal on the emergency frequencies of 121.5 and 243.0 megahertz. When "armed," an ELT is designed to automatically activate in the event of a crash and then continually emit the emergency signal, thereby helping rescuers to locate the crashed aircraft. ELTs are required to be installed in almost all U.S.-registered civil aircraft."
"The strange evidence of emergency locator transmitter signals being broadcast in the New York area before the World Trade Center towers were hit raises serious questions about the official account of the 9/11 attacks."
serious questions should also be asked about the mini nukes that went off in the buildings
Obama Outdoes The Bush Mob
Obama argues his assassination program is a "state secret"
"At this point, I didn't believe it was possible, but the Obama administration has just reached an all-new low in its abysmal civil liberties record. In response to the lawsuit filed by Anwar Awlaki's father asking a court to enjoin the President from assassinating his son, a U.S. citizen, without any due process, the administration late last night, according to The Washington Post, filed a brief asking the court to dismiss the lawsuit without hearing the merits of the claims. That's not surprising: both the Bush and Obama administrations have repeatedly insisted that their secret conduct is legal but nonetheless urge courts not to even rule on its legality. But what's most notable here is that one of the arguments the Obama DOJ raises to demand dismissal of this lawsuit is "state secrets": in other words, not only does the President have the right to sentence Americans to death with no due process or charges of any kind, but his decisions as to who will be killed and why he wants them dead are "state secrets," and thus no court may adjudicate their legality."

As far as emergency toiletry goes it's essential to do it right or you could get in big trouble with disease, something that may impact everything else about contined existence. You cannot have too much toilet paper. If you're alive, you need it.
A cheap, very effective toilet for when the bathroom becomes useless goes like this - get a sturdy five gallon bucket ($5 from Home Depot) and a replacement toilet seat ($10 - $12 from same). The two I got fit together surprisingly well.
Lay in as big a supply of 13 gallon trash bags as you can. Line the bucket with a bag and replace as needed. Voila. You should already have a good supply of bleach for disinfectant and maybe something to cut the odors. This cheap setup along with a several gallon black plastic or rubber bag to put in the sun to warm up for a shower will keep you clean, which is positively, absolutely essential when it all comes unglued.
added - Dare to Prepare: Collapse of Civilization Now Guaranteed
"It has been written" as the saying goes. For many generations there have been small groups of people who have researched and protested the criminal nature of our rulers who cast their disease on civilization. These activists screamed truth to the masses about humanity's hidden slavery, yet few listened.
However, the injustices have now become too extreme, too obvious, that the truth has risen to near critical mass with the independent-minded population. And indeed many more sheep, who unknowingly fund their own prison, are waking up by the minute.
But can this mass awakening prevent our civilization from collapsing during this detonation period?
Sorry folks, the answer is no."

Our ET Welcome Hostess
UN to appoint Earth contact for aliens
"THE United Nations was set today to appoint an obscure Malaysian astrophysicist to act as Earth’s first contact for any aliens that may come visiting.
Mazlan Othman, the head of the UN's little-known Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa), is to describe her potential new role next week at a scientific conference at the Royal Society’s Kavli conference centre in Buckinghamshire.
She is scheduled to tell delegates that the recent discovery of hundreds of planets around other stars has made the detection of extraterrestrial life more likely than ever before - and that means the UN must be ready to coordinate humanity’s response to any “first contact”.
During a talk Othman gave recently to fellow scientists, she said: “The continued search for extraterrestrial communication, by several entities, sustains the hope that some day humankind will receive signals from extraterrestrials.
"When we do, we should have in place a coordinated response that takes into account all the sensitivities related to the subject. The UN is a ready-made mechanism for such coordination.”
Professor Richard Crowther, an expert in space law and governance at the UK Space Agency and who leads British delegations to the UN on such matters, said: “Othman is absolutely the nearest thing we have to a ‘take me to your leader’ person.”

"It sounds really cool but I have to deny it," she said of the story. She will be attending a conference next week, but she'll be talking about how the world deals with "near-Earth objects".
Border Fence You Might Not Have Heard About
"The Inter-Press Sevice (IPS) is reporting that the head administrator of the Mexican Superintendency of Tax Administration, Raul Diaz, has confirmed that his government is building a wall in the state of Chiapas, along the Mexican/Guatemalan border.
The official reason is to stop contraband from coming into Mexico, but as Diaz admitted: “It could also prevent the free passage of illegal immigrants.”
According to Mexico's National Commission on Human Rights, 500,000 people from Central America cross into Mexico illegally every year.
Just as Mexican authorities have opposed the construction of a fence by the U.S., along our border with their country, Mexico is now receiving a great deal of criticism from the Guatemalan government."
Death Cult Hides It's Handiwork
"Evidently worried about a repeat of the anger aimed at US forces over photos of torture at Abu Ghraib prison, the US military is restricting access to photos of Afghan corpses in the "kill-for-sport" trial of five US soldiers.
According to the New York Times, Benjamin K. Grimes, a senior counsel for the defense, was "inadvertently" sent images last week that show, among other things, "three dead Afghans with three different soldiers posing, holding up the decedent’s head. (Each photo was one Afghan, one soldier.)"
Military officials quickly asked for the photos to be returned. "In an unusual move, prosecutors then demanded defense representatives at the base return the computer disk containing the photos," reports the Seattle Times.
"The decision reflects concern among the Army’s senior leadership that such evidence could anger Afghan civilians at a time when the United States is trying to win support for a counterinsurgency campaign against the Taliban," states the New York Times.
In a memorandum, Army Col. Barry F. Huggins cited "negative impact on the reputation of the armed forces" as the reason for the order to keep the photos out of the public eye. He argued that limiting the photos to judges and lawyers directly involved in the case would cause only "minimal hardship."
Five soldiers were charged with murder in June, accused of participating in the killings of three Afghans. At the center of the allegations is Army Staff Sgt. Calvin Gibbs, who prosecutors say formed a "kill team" to randomly kill Afghans while on patrol."

How Bad Is It?
"GREENSBORO, N.C. — A hospital in Greensboro has seen unclaimed bodies stack up because family members can’t afford to pay burial costs.
WGHP-TV reported the morgue at Moses Cone Hospital has had 39 bodies go unclaimed by family members this year. That’s up from 15 in 2008 and 26 last year.
Hospital pathology director Theresa O’Laughlin says some families just lack the money for burial expenses that often mount into thousands of dollars. Other bodies are claimed after families collect a paycheck or tax refund.
Guilford County will pay for a bare-bones burial if the family can’t, at least until the local government runs out of money.
Economic hard times have meant mounting burial bills for counties across the country."

Karmic Plague Descends On Cesspool Of Corruption
"Shaped like shields and armed with an odor, dime-size brown bugs are crawling into area homes over windowsills, through door crevices and between attic vents in such numbers that homeowners talk about drowning them in jars of soapy water, suffocating them in plastic bags or even burning them with propane torches. In the process, some people are unwittingly creating another problem: When squashed or irritated, the bugs release the distinctive smell of sweaty feet.
Get used to it, experts say - the invasion is only going to get worse.
"This is the vanguard," said Mike Raupp, a University of Maryland entomologist and extension specialist. "I think this is going to be biblical this year," he said. "You're going to hear a collective wail in the Washington area, up through Frederick and Allegany counties, like you've never heard before. The [bug] populations are just through the ceiling."
The change in season, as days shorten and nighttime temperatures start to dip, is nature's call to the brown marmorated stink bug - pest extraordinaire - to leave its summer gorging grounds and seek refuge inside. What's happening now is a massive population shift from orchards, cornfields and gardens to suburban homes, office buildings and hotels - the urban U.S. equivalents of rocky outcroppings in the stink bug's native Asia.
Stink bugs are harmless to people and their possessions. They don't bite. They don't sting. They're not known to transmit disease. But their population has grown so tremendously that they are not only causing vexation to homeowners but also, for the first time, wreaking damage to peaches and apples, soybeans and corn, and even ornamental shrubs and trees."
More Nails For The 9/11 Fairy Tale Coffin
"(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?"
It it was indeed a Boeing 757 that hit the building.

Can we have unanimous agreement here that bailed-out bankers should not be rewarded with huge bonuses for their failures?"

FBI Launching Mass Raids of Antiwar Activists’ Homes
"The FBI is confirming that this morning they began a number of “raids” against the homes of antiwar activists, claiming that they are “seeking evidence relating to activities concerning the material support of terrorism.”
So far there do not appear to have been any arrests related to the raids nor, according to FBI spokesman Steve Warfield, are there any expected. He also insisted that there was “no imminent threat” related to the antiwar organization targeted. Some of the activists say they were ordered to appear before a grand jury, however.
The warrant against antiwar activist Mick Kelly’s home cited efforts to look into his ability to “pay for his own travel” to Palestine and Colombia and appeared to have been little more than a fishing expedition looking for possible links to “foreign terrorist organizations including but not limited to FARC, PFLP, and Hezbollah.” Kelly insists that the raids were about harassing antiwar organizers.
Officials said they were related to a Joint Terrorism Task Force investigation. The JTTF in Minneapolis has a long history of heavy-handed investigations against protest groups, including an attempt in 2008 to infiltrate a vegan potluck."

Portrait Of Poverty In America
"A comment by Bill Simon, CEO of Walmart's U.S. operations, made last week at the Goldman Sachs Retail Conference:
'And you need not go further than one of our stores on midnight at the end of the month. And it's real interesting to watch, about 11 p.m., customers start to come in and shop, fill their grocery basket with basic items, baby formula, milk, bread, eggs, and continue to shop and mill about the store until midnight, when ... government electronic benefits cards get activated and then the checkout starts and occurs. And our sales for those first few hours on the first of the month are substantially and significantly higher.
And if you really think about it, the only reason somebody gets out in the middle of the night and buys baby formula is that they need it, and they've been waiting for it. Otherwise, we are open 24 hours -- come at 5 a.m., come at 7 a.m., come at 10 a.m. But if you are there at midnight, you are there for a reason.'
"This is not the first time Walmart executives have pointed out the midnight electronic food stamp bread line. Last December, Walmart CFO Tom Schoewe was quoted making similar comments in "Midnight in the Food Stamp Economy," a definitive Reuters article on the subject by Nicole Maestri and Lisa Baertlein. Two years ago, Bill Simon's predecessor Eduardo Castro-Wright remarked upon the "disturbing" surge in sales of baby formula visible on the 1st and 15th of every month."
It's the small signs like these that really tell the tale. We're not being allowed to know the true extent of the economic collapse; government and it's media propaganda are continuing the recovery farce. One has to wonder what the kids were eating in between times.
In my area there are three clues to how bad it's getting. For sale signs are popping up like mushrooms and the foreclosure list is staggering, as a matter of fact the nearest neighbors disappeared in the middle of the night when their house was foreclosed.
I went to my auto insurance office and during the course of a conversation, sprinkled in as an afterthought, the secretary said a lot of people are just allowing their policies to expire - not canceling for some reason, just letting them run out.
I happened to bring a couple of those old Sacagawea dollars to the local grocery store and the checkout woman exclaimed how they were just being flooded by them, which I take to mean people are running out of money and are using the coins they had collected and set aside in a jar somewhere.
UK Is Second Fattest Nation In The World
"NEARLY two thirds of Britons are overweight and the proportion will keep rising in the next decade, according to a report.
The national obesity crisis means the UK is now the second “heaviest” nation in the world after the United States.
The report’s author, Franco Sassi, said: “There is a frightening increase in the epidemic. We’ve not reached the plateau yet.”
Statistics from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development show that two out of three British men are overweight and a quarter of the population is classed as obese.
But the proportion of overweight people is predicted to rise 10 per cent in the next 10 years to nearly 70 per cent."

Our Betters Want Their Due
"The Queen asked ministers for a poverty handout to help heat her palaces but was rebuffed because they feared it would be a public relations disaster, documents disclosed under the Freedom of Information Act reveal.
Royal aides were told that the £60m worth of energy-saving grants were aimed at families on low incomes and if the money was given to Buckingham Palace instead of housing associations or hospitals it could lead to "adverse publicity" for the Queen and the Government."
Glenn Beck rips off his gullible audience
"The report alleges that Goldline grossly overcharges for the gold coins that constitute the bulk of its business, uses misleading sales techniques and takes advantage of fears about President Barack Obama’s stewardship of the economy – which are stoked by its stable of paid conservative endorsers including Beck, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham and Fred Thompson – “to cheat consumers.”
Bono's ONE Foundation Under Fire For Giving a Little Over 1% of Funds to Charity
"There was a humdinger of a story about Bono in the New York Post earlier this week that the Mail has picked up on this morning. According to the Post, Bono’s anti-poverty ONE foundation received $14,993,873 in donations from philanthropists in 2008, of which just $184,732 was distributed to three charities. (ONE is an “advocacy organisation” whose main purpose is to change policies, not support charities, it says.) So what happened to the rest? More than $8 million was spent on executive and employee salaries.
This isn’t gossip. The Post’s figures are taken directly from the organisation’s 2008 tax return, the latest year for which records are available. This story follows hot on the heels of the revelation that Edun, Bono’s fashion label, has shifted some of its production base from Africa to China. A perfectly acceptable business decision, were it not for the fact that Edun is an “ethical” fashion house that was set up to aleviate poverty in … Africa."
Berkshire billionaire: Public should 'suck it in' in hard times
"Charles Munger, the billionaire vice chairman of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., defended the bank bailouts of 2008 and told students that people in economic distress should "suck it in and cope."
"You should thank God" for the financial rescues, Munger said in a discussion last Tuesday at the University of Michigan, according to a video posted on the Internet. "Now, if you talk about bailouts for everybody else, there comes a place where if you just start bailing out all the individuals instead of telling them to adapt, the culture dies."

Machines That Lie
"Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology may have made a terrible, terrible mistake: They’ve taught robots how to deceive.
It probably seemed like a good idea at the time. Military robots capable of deception could trick battlefield foes who aren’t expecting their adversaries to be as smart as a real soldier might be, for instance. But when machines rise up against humans and the robot apocalypse arrives, we’re all going to be wishing that Ronald Arkin and Alan Wagner had kept their ideas to themselves.
The pair detailed how they managed it in a paper published in the International Journal of Social Robotics. Two robots — one black and one red — were taught to play hide and seek. The black, hider, robot chose from three different hiding places, and the red, seeker, robot had to find him using clues left by knocked-over colored markers positioned along the paths to the hiding places.
However, unbeknownst to the poor red seeker, the black robot had a trick up its sleeve. Once it had passed the colored markers, it shifted direction and hid in an entirely different location, leaving behind it a false trail that managed to fool the red robot in 75 percent of the 20 trials that the researchers ran. The five failed trails resulted from the black robots’ difficulty in knocking over the correct markers.
“The experimental results weren’t perfect, but they demonstrated the learning and use of deception signals by real robots in a noisy environment,” Wagner says. “The results were also a preliminary indication that the techniques and algorithms described in the paper could be used to successfully produce deceptive behavior in a robot.”
"Jason Grodensky, a Fort Lauderdale man who bought his house with cash last December was surprised to discover that Bank of America had foreclosed on him, though he has no mortgage. Florida's foreclosure mills being what they are, the checks and balances against erroneous foreclosure have eroded to the point where banks can seize and sell homes they have no interest in.
Grodensky's story and other tales of foreclosure mistakes started popping up recently across South Florida. This week, GMAC Mortgage -- one of the nation's largest mortgage servicers and a major mortgage lender -- told real estate agents to stop evicting residents and suspend sales of properties that had been taken from homeowners in foreclosure. The company said it might have to "correct" some of its foreclosures, but was not halting those in process.
In Florida courts, which have been swamped with foreclosure cases for several years, mistakes "happen all the time," said foreclosure defense attorney Matt Weidner in St. Petersburg. "It's just not getting reported."
"And the legal efforts required to resolve a foreclosure mistake are complicated. "Unwrapping it is like unwrapping Fort Knox," said Carol Asbury, a Fort Lauderdale foreclosure attorney. "It's very difficult."
Brouhaha Over "Absorb" Comment Soley To Institutionalize Terrorism Myth
Aside from the stupidity of phony left/right antagonism, which is theater to convince the dullards there is any sort of debate concerning empire's courses of action, this type of contrived shit exists only to prop up the lie that 9/11 was an external attack.
Bob Woodword is supposedly a career CIA asset, after all, and it's funny how "opposition" voices were poised to attack.
Obama said US can absorb another 9/11, claims Woodward book
"Washington, Sep 23(ANI): US President Barack Obama reckons that the country can "absorb" another terror attack, a new book by journalist Bob Woodward has claimed.
"We can absorb a terrorist attack. We'll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever . . . we absorbed it and we are stronger," Obama reportedly said.
The comment has drawn tough criticism from Liz Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney and chairwoman of Keep America Safe.
"This comment suggests an alarming fatalism on the part of President Obama and his administration," Liz said in a statement.
"Once again the president seems either unwilling or unable to do what it takes to keep this nation safe. The president owes the American people an explanation," she added."
Flashback: Bush National Security Strategy Said We Must Be ‘Able To Absorb The Impact’ Of A Terrorist Attack
"Recall, Cheney’s father — the former vice president of the United States — told Meet the Press’s Tim Russert in 2002 that another terrorist attack was “almost a certainty.” He added it that it was only a matter of time before the U.S. got hit again:
VICE PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY: The prospect of another attack against the United States is very, very real. It’s just as real, in my opinion, as it was September 12.
TIM RUSSERT, NBC News: Not a matter of if, but when?
VICE PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY: Not a matter of if, but when."
Dripping Slugs Of A Dying Empire
"Jason Ditz at Antiwar.com continues his lonely vigil of documenting the carnage being inflicted upon civilians in Pakistan by the increasingly frenzied drone missile attacks ordered by the Peace Laureate in the White House.
Almost every day, Ditz has fresh hell to offer up on the story of this remarkably brazen campaign of outright war crimes. Most of his pieces draw on foreign sources; there is almost nothing in the American press about this literally inhuman invasion of the sovereign territory of a nation allied to the United States. It is truly a bizarre situation; then again, in a militarist system whose pervasive moral depravity has long reached lunatic proportions, murdering the children of your allies is perhaps not so unusual. Certainly, the guardians of our public discourse don’t consider it newsworthy in any way.
The latest update from Ditz captures many of the main features of Barack Obama’s ruthless robot war on Pakistan: mass killings, murky motives and missed targets:
'Pakistan’s remote tribal agencies of North and South Waziristan are in a state of virtual panic tonight as US drones continue to loom in the air and three attacks against separate towns across the region killed at least 28 people and wounded an unknown number of others.'
The Daily Times story that Ditz links to goes on to describe the "great panic among the locals" as the American drones continued to hover over the defenseless towns even after the attack. No one could be sure when or if the robots would fire again. There was no way to stop the machines; they were impervious, implacable, just floating there, groaning in the sky, their "pilots" sitting safely and comfortably before computer screens thousands of miles away. You couldn’t get away, you couldn’t hide, you couldn’t protect your children.
This is raw terrorism, pure and simple, nothing but terrorism, terrorism on the grandest of scales, terrorism without end – no one-time "spectacle," but a grim, steady, relentless, mechanical process. It is also the terrorism of cowards, murdering at a vast distance, by remote control, in sneak attacks against defenseless people.
Ditz's story also includes what has become a familiar motif in the American way of Terror War: attacking communal gathering of civilians – weddings, funerals – and slaughtering the participants.
'Officials have so far failed to identify any of the targets of the attacks, but reports from the ground suggest that one of the US drones attacked a funeral procession that was carried out for people killed in a previous attack.'
Nor was this the only Standard Operating Procedure at play in the latest raid. There was also the familiar "provocative attacks which destroy local peace-making efforts and ensure the continuation of violent conflict" scenario, coupled with one of the overarching themes of the entire Terror War: missing the ostensible targets of a raid and killing civilians instead.
'Reports suggested that the targets hit were related to one of the militant factions which has an existing ceasefire with the Pakistani government, and it does not appear that any of the victims of the attacks were "high value" targets.'
This is in so many ways a portrait in miniature of the entire bloody and misbegotten enterprise in Central Asia. For viewed in this light – that is, by the declared aims of the American-led coalition of occupation -- what is the entire "Af-Pak" war but a gargantuan failure to capture or kill a handful of "high value" targets, who somehow, miraculously, always manage to escape, while civilians are killed by the thousands?

But of course these "high value targets" are not the true aim of the war. The war itself is the aim of the war: the continuation of perpetual – and profitable – conflict, and the expansion of the power and privilege and corrupted wealth that accrues to the bipartisan operators (and lickspittle apologists) of a militarist empire."

America Apes It's Zionist Master's Snitfests
"UNITED NATIONS – The U.S. delegation walked out of the U.N. speech of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday after he said some in the world have speculated that Americans were behind the Sept. 11 terror attacks, staged in an attempt to assure Israel's survival.
He did not explain the logic of that statement that was made as he attacked the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Ahmadinejad has called for the destruction of Israel and is deeply at odds with the United States and European allies over its nuclear program and suspicions that it is designed to produce an atomic bomb. Iran says it is only working on technology for electricity generation.
The U.S. delegation left the hall after Ahmadinejad said there were three theories about the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks:
_That "powerful and complex terrorist group" penetrated U.S. intelligence and defenses.
_"That some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining American economy and its grips on the Middle East in order also to save the Zionist regime. The majority of the American people as well as other nations and politicians agree with this view."
The Americans stood and walked out without listening to the third theory, that the attack was the work of "a terrorist group but the American government supported and took advantage of the situation."
Mark Kornblau, spokesman of the U.S. Mission to the world body, issued a statement within moments of Ahmadinejad's attack.
"Rather than representing the aspirations and goodwill of the Iranian people," he said, "Mr. Ahmadinejad has yet again chosen to spout vile conspiracy theories and anti-Semitic slurs that are as abhorrent and delusional as they are predictable."
Play 'Spot the bullshit' in this Yahoo news propaganda.
They had to report what every other news outlet would report, that zionist whores in the US diplomat office would walk out on the currently designated villain du jour, but had to throw in the usual boringly incessant propaganda. The accusation of anti semitism. Reference to the "wiping off the map" lie.
Watch Ahmadinejad get smeared to the max for daring to say "Israel" and "9/11" in the same breath.
As Michael Rivero says about this drama queen business at WhatReally Happened:
"From out here in the real world, this kind of dramatic "How DARE you" over-reaction is like gluing a flashing neon sign to the forehead of the US delegation blinking "GUILTY AS HELL!"

This Day In History
"Midway between the bottom of Africa and the Princess Astrid Coast of Antarctica, it’s arguably the most solitary piece of real estate on Earth, a lonely pimple jutting out of the gray, heaving seas of the South Atlantic. You could journey to the most remote inhabited spot on Earth, Tristan da Cunha, and you’d still have another 1,000 miles to go to reach Bouvet Island.
Ninety-three percent of it is covered in glacial ice, the rest in penguin guano. It’s an overseas possession of Norway. Other than dispatching a small crew every decade or so to service an automated weather station, Oslo pretty much ignores its forlorn outpost. It would be the perfect spot to test a nuclear bomb from a clandestine nuclear weapons program.
Which, apparently, is what someone did on September 22, 1979. Someone – possibly South Africa or Israel, possibly Taiwan – set off a 2-to-3 kiloton thermonuclear device in the waters off Bouvet Island. It might have gone unnoticed, but the telltale double flash was spotted by the unblinking eye of an American spy satellite and the radiation was detected by Australian scientists in Antarctica. The official position of the U.S. State Department is that it never happened, but the scientific community believes this is a political cover-up."
Meanwhile, four years earlier, apartheid Israel (we neither confirm or deny we have them) had some irresponsible little deals going on with apartheid South Africa:
Israel Offered to Sell Nukes to South Africa
"Secret South African documents reveal that Israel offered to sell nuclear warheads to the apartheid regime, providing the first official documentary evidence of the state’s possession of nuclear weapons.
The “top secret” minutes of meetings between senior officials from the two countries in 1975 show that South Africa’s defence minister, PW Botha, asked for the warheads and Shimon Peres, then Israel’s defence minister and now its president, responded by offering them “in three sizes”."
Civilian Deaths A Dead Giveaway
12 women and children killed in Iran bombing
"A deadly bomb attack has struck a military parade in Iran.
At least 12 women and children are dead and 60 others wounded.
The event was being held to mark the 30th anniversary of the Iran-Iraq war.
“We were just standing there and suddenly a bomb exploded,” said one victim. “We all ran away. When I wanted to move, I noticed I couldn’t move my legs.”
“A lot of people were injured and killed, a lot of children,” said another victim. “The bomb exploded right next to me.”
The attack happened in the West Azerbaijan region, in the city of Mahabad, which has a mostly Kurdish population.
“The source of this incident is foreign,” said the regional governor, Vahid Jalalzadeh. “Unfortunately Americans and their allies are present in the region and from the day that they came with their security slogan, we witnessed a spread of instability. Their support for counter-revolutionaries, hypocrites and terrorist groups in the region has been clearly proven.”
Authorities say the bomb had a timer device and had been left in a tree before the parade started.
No casualties were reported among soldiers or dignitaries attending the event.
It was one of several parades held across Iran today."
ABC Passes This Off As News
"A top Israeli warned today that Iran's vast nuclear program could be crippled for years with airstrikes on just a "few bottlenecks, important ones."
Israel's public calculation came a day after Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad vowed that he would unleash a "war without boundaries" on the U.S. if it allowed Israel to attack its nuclear complex. "War is not just bombs," the Iranian president threatened.
Deputy Israeli Foreign Minister Dan Ayalon was asked today in an exclusive interview with ABC News Radio whether Iran's nuclear facilities face potential air strikes, nuclear or otherwise, by Israel or the United States.
"Let me answer hypothetically," Ayalon responded. "We know that the operation, this illegal operation in Iran, is vast. It's enormous. So that, of course, begs the question, can it be taken out? The short answer is yes."
Fuck you, you murderous psycho thug, and shame on you ABC, you whoring zionist mouthpiece.
Let's just start with the facts, yet one more time. Iran signed the nuclear non proliferation treaty and Israel didn't. The IAEA has repeatedly stated Iran is not making nuclear weapons. Iran is well within it's rights to build power plants. As a matter of fact as co signer of the above treaty the US is supposed to help Iran do so. As a rogue, outlaw state who regularly commits war crimes on a vast scale the US is breaking all laws in aiding and abetting the zionist murderers.
If israel or the US sends missiles screaming into Iran they'll be attacking a nation that poses no physical threat whatsoever to either Israel or the US. Bombing any laboratories, plants or facilities in Iran will slaughter innocent people and will probably unleash radioactive storms that will sweep across the middle east and Asia. At that point the Iranians would be well within their rights to level all Israeli cities and turn every american installation in the middle east into a smoking crater. ABC 'news' will be complicit in the deaths of thousands of US servicepeople by giving voice to insane psychotics that blithely ruminate on beginning nuclear war.
To my way of looking at it, Iran is the target for mainly two reasons. First the racist and insanely bellicose, parasitical entity called Israel must always remain the hegemonic bully on the middle east block. All of their Israel first whores in america make sure you ingest that point, over and over again. Also, and not widely known because of obvious reasons, islamic banking is a dire threat to current judeo/christian banking. The practice of collecting interest on loans is unambiguously condemned in the Qur'an, a wildly popular and spreading idea that just might be at the root of all the current manufactured islamaphobia, aided and abetted by western monied institutions and the people who run them, terrified of losing their profitable, parasitic positions.
By the way, the glitches during Ahmadinejad's speech to the UN where the translators couldn't be heard has all the earmarks of the usual snitty zionist bag of tricks, along the lines of forbidding Gazan children to have crayons.,

The Chinese Century
"We have reached a turning point in our history. The US and its allies are preparing to launch a nuclear war with devastating consequences.
During the Cold War, the concept of "mutual assured destruction" (MAD) was put forth. An understanding of the consequences of nuclear war largely contributed to avoiding the outbreak of war between the US and the Soviet Union.
Today, in the post-Cold war era, no such understanding prevails.
The spectre of a nuclear holocaust, which haunted the world for half a century has been relegated to the status of "collateral damage".
This military adventure in the real sense of the word threatens the future of humanity."
The next conflict will explode regional in a heartbeat
Can America Stop An Israeli 'Nuclear' 9/11?
Americans sat, on 9/11, with their military “asleep at the switch,” their president in a daze and Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld, perhaps out of confusion, we may never know, talking about airliners being shot down and the Pentagon being attacked by missiles. Yes, he said these things, things he couldn’t “unsay” but things the press showed once and quickly buried. Something terribly wrong happened, something years in planning, but not planned in a cave in Afghanistan. Everywhere investigators look, one thing pops up, Israel. The moment that door is opened, it is slammed shut, often with threats, often with more than threats.
We may never know the full extent of the brutality used against those who have spoken up. We know that Arab leaders can be assassinated anywhere, any time. America will remain silent and the news will always support Israel. Israel owns the news.
What about the “suicided” British scientist Dr. David Kelly, the man responsible for moving the Israeli nukes out of South Africa? Reliable sources tell us he was ready to come forward with the facts about a massive political scandal, a cover-up of lost nuclear weapons, blackmail and bribery.
Do we really believe that there are so many unlucky United States senators? Crashes of small aircraft has done more to control the US Senate than any election, control used to set the stage for a generation of wars. With AIPAC capable of buying any election, capable, willing and doing it, not an American organization at all but a lobby for a foreign government, one that likes America “not so much” as we are led to believe, is representative government in the United States dead? When someone swears an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, is it meaningless when the government itself is no longer “American?”
Control of America, or, more appropriately, control of America’s vast military, tired and worn as it is, represents the key to ruling the world. Fooling the people, buying the government and duping America’s military through infiltrating every level of critical decision making and communications is a task, not only attempted but one long since accomplished. Problem is, even with, not only control of the press, but powerful news organizations directly under foreign control like Fox News, word is getting out."
The American people are afraid, they see disaster coming. Everyone is waiting to see what city is chosen to be sacrificed. Will it be Phoenix or Sacramento or perhaps Atlanta? This is the real fear, the “not so secret” fear in the heart of every American.

Israel Slides IntoFascism
"The Israeli Knesset is debating a bill proposed by David Rotem of the extreme right Yisrael Beiteinu party that would require all Israeli citizens to swear loyalty to Israel as a "Jewish and democratic state." This bill is targeted at increasing pressure on the 20 percent of Israelis who are Palestinian citizens, while forcing the ultra-Orthodox Jewish minority who reject the legitimacy of any state not based on Jewish biblical law to accept Zionism. If passed in its proposed form, citizens unwilling to take the loyalty oath would be at risk of losing citizenship.
Israeli leaders committed to a classic secular political Zionist platform have always fought at all costs to guard Israel's "Jewish character," even while they reveal their inability to properly define exactly what it is. The loyalty oath and the push for a two-state solution are the most profound examples of the insecurity that has roiled beneath the surface in Jewish Israeli society since the state's inception. Without a Jewish majority exhibiting clear legal and political dominance over the non-Jewish or non-Zionist minority, the Zionist movement becomes meaningless. So as the Palestinian-Israeli minority actively resists its dispossession and the ultra-Orthodox stubbornly reject the concept of a Jewish state, the Israeli establishment feels increasingly compelled to seek draconian measures to salvage its vision of Zionism."
"Ultimately, we sought to determine the extent to which the Jewish public in Israel and abroad was ready to accept fascism in any form. To get a better sense of public opinion -- an incomplete snapshot, admittedly -- we asked interview subjects if they would swear before our camera an oath of loyalty to the Jewish state. Our oath was deliberately crafted with the most provocative language possible, based almost word-for-word on the Führereid, or the oath that Wehrmacht soldiers had to swear to Adolph Hitler from 1934 to 1945.
The Wehrmacht oath read as follows:
I swear by God this holy oath, that I want to offer unconditional obedience to the Fuhrer of the German Empire and people, Adolf Hitler, the commander-in-chief of the Wehrmacht, and be prepared as a brave soldier to risk my life for this oath at any time.
And here is the oath of loyalty to the Jewish state that our interview subjects read on camera:
I swear by Hashem [the Jewish God] that I want to offer unconditional loyalty to the Jewish state of Israel, to its leaders and the commanders of its Jewish army. I am prepared as a loyal supporter of the Jewish state to risk my life for this oath at any time."
Amazing how willing the citizenry was to read this on camera and even add their own testimonials to glorify their racist state.
Self Mummifying Happy Meals
Day 145 Sally Davies "Happy Meal Project"
"McDonalds Happy Meal. Purchased fresh from McDonalds on April 10, 2010 and have been photographing subsequently ever since. Its sitting on my coffee table with nothing covering. it. No bugs, no mould, no smell, nothing."
"Jews throughout Williamsburg snapped up caffeine suppositories today, hours before the start of the Yom Kippur fast that would deprive them of the jolt — and hunger suppression — that coffee typically provides.
The day-long fast is the centerpiece of the holiest day on the Jewish calendar — but some religious Jews see a Talmudic loophole that allows them to ingest their daily dose of caffeine, albeit through a different orifice.
“It helps — you know, it’s hard to concentrate when you’re fasting and also addicted to caffeine,” said Baruch Herzfeld, an Orthodox Jew who owns a bike store in Williamsburg. “Some take it before sundown, but most take it throughout their fasting. These guys love a good loophole.”
These huge, rectally inserted pills are popular. Pharmacists at Rafieh — one of many distributors in south Williamsburg on Lee Avenue — sold nearly 150 suppositories today.
“We have caffeine suppositories!” the store’s handwritten sign heralded. “Be ready!”
Thugs Egg On Yet Another Dimwit "Terrorist" Patsy
Man Arrested After Planting Fake Bomb in Chicago
"A man arrested for allegedly placing a backpack he thought contained an explosive near the Chicago's Wrigley Field also talked about poisoning Lake Michigan, bombing a landmark skyscraper and assassinating Mayor Richard Daley, according to a federal complaint filed Monday.
Sami Samir Hassoun, 22, a Lebanese citizen living in Chicago, was charged with one count each of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction and attempted use of an explosive device.
"He wanted to transform the city of Chicago, he wanted to make a statement and he wanted to replace the mayor of Chicago," said FBI Special Agent in Charge Robert Grant. "He was unhappy with the way the city was running. He was also unhappy with things that were happening in other parts of world."
"Hassoun was arrested early Sunday after planting the fake explosive device — which was given to him by an undercover agent — in a trash receptacle near Sluggers World Class Sports Bar, a popular bar steps from Wrigley Field, Grant said. The Cubs were not playing at their home field; the stadium hosted Dave Matthews Band concerts Friday and Saturday nights.
Hassoun on one occasion told an FBI informant he wanted to paralyze commerce in the city, according to the complaint against him. Asked how he intended to carry out various suggested attacks, Hassoun responded, "You park the car, and let it go 'boom,"' the complaint says.
Hassoun's alleged plots — including talk of plans to unleash a biological virus on Chicago — ranged during the investigation. Grant said Hassoun wanted to start his own organization.
"He was not highly skilled, but I think he was definitely desirous of obtaining the material needed to carry out his attack," Grant said.
Chicago authorities said Daley never was in any danger. Police said Daley — who has been in China for a business trip — was informed of the plot over the weekend.
"We were always in control of this investigation," said Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis."
