Summer Carry

I pack heat all year long. I've mentioned it before on this blog, and the reasoning behind that fact, along with how it doesn't make me feel like a Big Man, how it doesn't make me think I can get away with things that I wouldn't do if I didn't have a gun on me, etc etc, I'm not going to get into here. I really don't even think about it much. It's like slipping my wallet in my pants or putting a hat on my head. It's always in the back of my mind though, like a tool in my toolbox if the truck breaks down. Even though I admire open carry enthusiasts who proudly extoll second amendment rights (use them or lose them) I prefer discreet carry for the most part because now with my grandpa looks (although I can still bench close to 300) I'd rather use my age to appear innocuous.

Oh yes I loves my high capacity pistols but for the most part they tend to be big and bulky. If one doesn't care that others know there's a gun on the hip that's just fine, but for concealment purposes it's a real problem. Here are a couple of my bigger rigs:

These I'll wear with jackets and sweatshirts in colder weather or when I go practice up in the forest and don't interact much with the hoi polloi. Where I live people don't mind much if you're strapped, however walking into a bank or getting stopped on the highway by a badged, steroid bloated thug might pose some problems, so a less conspicuous platform is in my interests.
By far the best choice for concealed carry with lighter clothing is a five shot snub nosed revolver in a small holster, perhaps with an optional extra five rounds in a speed loader on a belt. (I'm a firm advocate of belt holsters as opposed to pocket carry or sticking your piece in the back of your pants, for obvious reasons.)
And in my opinion the top shelf pick is the Ruger SP 101.
Not because I own one, which I do, actually along with a Smith and Wesson model 60, but because it's the very best snubbie on the market bar none. This is my .357 summer rig:

It's got a Hogue grip which fits a bigger hand and is much more comfortable than the small stock grip.
Ruger builds their guns like the Brooklyn Bridge - much stronger than need be and more so than any other comparable weapons on the market, at a nore affordable price. Rugged doesn't even begin to describe them.
IMO a fixed sight points fastest and is more accurate in speed drills at seven yards than any other. This is after tens of thousands of draws shooting tens of thousands of rounds standing still, moving forward, backwards and sideways. I liken it to point and fire shotgunning rather than target practice with adjustable sights.
The SP101 can be had in .22, .38+p, .327 magnum, 9mm and .357 magnum.
For the semi auto pistol snots who'll look down their noses at the anachronism of carrying technology that used to hold up stagecoaches, my little revolver won't leave spent cases all over the ground. So there.

Death Cult Is On The March

The Enablers and their Psychopathic Masters

"For shame, ten thousand times for shame; the juggernaut of the murder machine of Death Incorporated, the Bush/Obama slice and dice, human meat processing, corporation of mulched woman and children rolls on. In Afghanistan a couple of days ago, they killed a group of women and children with video game drones. Karzai said that was the last straw and an hour later they killed a bunch more at the other end of the country. NATO, which is only a fraud of nations, masquerading as a coalition, under the rule of American and British bankers, kills with impunity. British SAS, probably with American corporate mercenaries, have been spotted as ground-troops in Libya, looking to kill Gadhafi because he doesn’t want a central Rothschild bank and wants a collective African currency.

I can only pray that raging djinns rise up from the Earth and rip their fucking hearts out and toss them into the flames of Hell. Fuck Memorial Day and all the stupid canon fodder that went to die for banks. They went to die for the banks, so that the domesticated cattle population could keep on being enslaved with usury from Neo-Pharisee banks. Fuck you, you frothing psychopaths! May the Hell you seek to raise upon the Earth, ascend from the bowels of darkness, open her gates and burn you where you stand but not allow you to die. May you be served white phosphorus cocktails with a cluster bomb back. May the cluster bomb be dropped into the cocktail in a burning shrapnel shot glass, like some demented working man’s boiler maker and turn you into one of Dick Chaney’s hunting partners.

You sleazy, stinking shit-heels and your partners in crime the duped and stupid Michelin Tire Man public that parades behind you, with a bloodthirsty Onward Christian Soldiers, blaring from dissonant horns, counterpointed with some John Philip Susa’s, “This Duck may be Somebody’s Mother”. Bring on the tornadoes and the tsunamis and the earthquakes and bury this stupid, pigged out culture like rat corpses in a landfill. Then raise a marker that says, “Here lie those we will not name, they deserve no remembrance. They are killers all, who killed and died for banks”.

I want screaming, flaming devas to come out of the sky and tear Goldman Sachs into pieces and stomp the bankers into the pavement; every trader, hedge fund weasel, derivative scamming and blood drinking last one of them. Hang them on crosses from Wall Street to Broadway and set them on fire so they might be street lamps, lighting up the dark, alcoholic night of the American nightmare.

You sleazy entertainers; actors, masturbating musicians that glorify the killings; that act in the propaganda flicks, that celebrate the killing of Muslims who had nothing to do with 9/11. A 9/11 and 7/7 and Madrid Train Station bombing that was done by Neo-Pharisee, Israelis and her bitches, America and Britain at the behest of AIPAC, which IS the American government; yeah, your BFF swine nation of Ashke-NAZI, land stealing, genociding pirates from Europe- non Semitic trolls, who changed the truth of history so that they could pretend to be the very people they are bent on eliminating; who all through history have been preying upon life wherever they find it, while pretending to be the victims of events they made happen, so that they would look like victims; they cry out in pain when they strike you... all of you, all of you can just take a seat and wait for the piper."

Thomas Jefferson Is Laughing At Our Pitiful Selves

Outrage prompts 2nd Jefferson Memorial dance

"Outraged over police arresting five people for dancing at Thomas Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC this past Saturday, an announcement was made today that a second dance, open to the public, will be held at noon this coming Saturday, June 4th at the same venue. Police choked and body slammed one of the dancers Saturday.

Medea Benjamin, co-founder of Codepink and among the five arrested for dancing Saturday, has distributed invitations on the worldwide web to join others at Thomas Jefferson Memorial for what has been named the "D-A-N-C-E for American FREEDOM."

"On Saturday, May 28, five of us were arrested for dancing at the Jefferson Memorial, silently," states Benjamin.

"Dancing!" she exclaimed.

Gary Franchi, director of the Reality Report titled its news account of the arrests, "BREAKING: Terrorists Attack Jefferson Memorial with Deadly Dance Moves."

At least RT is reporting this, and the fact that people will be back to protest this idiocy:

Fascist Regimes Are Always In Control And Nothing Bad Happens When They're In Charge

We must understand that sanctity of fascist appearance is far more important to them than our health and welfare and the truth about human suffering, either from their fucking wars or from storms or earthquakes or nuclear plant catastrophes or gulf extinction events. One wonders if official reticence to disclose real casualty numbers in so called natural disasters stems from them being not so natural, and exacerbated by technologies for political ends.

Hurricane Andrew

"The injuries of those who survived were mind-boggling. I had a broken jaw with eight teeth knocked out. Huge shards of glass impaled my body so deeply, they were impossible to remove without the aid of a scalpel. My head injuries were so severe that they permanently affected my eyesight.

But I was only one amongst thousands of severely injured victims who struggled to survive the aftermath. For ten long days we were roped off from the outside world by United States military forces, leaving us stranded with no food, no water, no medical supplies, no shelter. Suffering from severe shell-shock, we waited and waited for rescue teams to arrive, but that just never happened. None of the injured in the roped-off areas was ever rescued from the devastation. It was the worst gut-wrenching betrayal I have ever experienced. I saw grown men lying on the ground in the fetal position, moaning and groaning pathetically as they tried to hug and rock themselves. My son was amongst them.

Don't get me wrong. United States military forces were indeed present in the roped-off areas within hours of Andrew ending. But they were not there to help survivors. The National Guard along with the Coast Guard, the Army, FEMA (the Federal Emergency Management Agency), Metro Dade Police, state police and local police removed dead bodies and body parts as quickly as possible during those first ten days of the aftermath. Horrified survivors watched as both uniformed and civilian- clothed men searched the rubble and filled body bags, which they then stacked in military vehicles or huge refrigerator trucks normally used to transport food, only to drive off and leave the stranded injured to fend for themselves.

Not until I managed to escape the aftermath did I discover that the "thermo-king" sections of these same refrigerator trucks, jam-packed with wall-to-wall body bags, ended up being stored at Card Sound Navy Base, located in an isolated area just above the Florida Keys. The inside temperature was kept cool by portable generators until the bodies were either incinerated or just plain dumped into huge open grave pits.

Those working on the body pick-up operation were forced to take what is known as the Oath of Sworn Secrecy, which is strictly enforced by the government. Many of them plunged into shock, once exposed to the ghastly devastation and countless mutilated bodies.

The horrors were way beyond human comprehension. I can vouch for this, as I accidentally stepped on the severed hand of a young child when I initially crawled out of the debris, only to witness shortly thereafter two dead teenagers and the decapitated body of a baby girl.

Fighting mental shock became such a big problem for the body pick-up teams that a special group of psychiatrists had to be brought in to help them cope with it. I believe this in itself is the reason why many who worked on the body collection didn't comprehend the tragic consequences this would inevitably lead to in the future.

The survivors of hurricane Andrew and the rest of the American people were betrayed by their own government. But the betrayal also extended to foreign nationals. At the time Andrew struck, South Dade was inhabited by a large population of Mexican illegal immigrants. The United States Department of Immigration was fully aware of their presence but quietly turned its back on the situation, knowing full well that South Dade farmers couldn't afford to harvest their crops without the help of the Mexican illegals. The heavily populated migrant camps were situated at the edge of the Florida Everglades. The people who lived there vanished without a trace during that fated night. Many bodies were found way out in the Everglades.

When I lectured at the Clearwater Convention in Florida in 1999, a man in the audience stood up and introduced himself as Chief Petty Officer Roy Howard. He proceeded to address the audience with this exact statement, which is now a matter of public record:

Just for your information, I was called up to active duty after hurricane Andrew went through South Dade County. I spent nine weeks down there. Now I will certify for the benefit of our audience here that the death figures that were officially published are totally inaccurate. According to the information which I received from my own sources within the National Guard, the figure I was quoted when I was down there was 5,280-something. And they were quietly disposed of in incinerators that were hurriedly put together by both the National Guard and FEMA...

As the Chief Petty Officer stated, "5,280-something" bodies were confiscated by the United States National Guard. In addition to this, the Coast Guard independently confiscated "1,500 bodies" from the lakes and surrounding waters. Neither one of these figures embraces the number of dead bodies confiscated by other branches of federal and state government directly involved in the body pick-up operation. This leaves the number of dead confiscated by various US authorities in South Dade still unknown.

The total number who died during hurricane Andrew is obviously staggering, yet whenever the "official death toll" is mentioned in the media, a figure of anywhere between 15 and 59 is quoted. The population of the 21 communities annihilated by Andrew's eye-wall had been officially recorded by the Dade County Census Bureau as 415,151 before Andrew struck."

flashback - Bush bans coverage of Iraq casualties

"Since the end of the Vietnam War, presidents have worried that their military actions would lose support once the public glimpsed the remains of U.S. soldiers arriving at air bases in flag-draped caskets.
To this problem, the Bush administration has found a simple solution: It has ended the public dissemination of such images by banning news coverage and photography of dead soldiers' homecomings on all military bases."

When Netanyahu The Butcher Got Standing Ovations

"Here is how Bibi got his “spontaneous” applause”, one and then the other explained. “AIPAC, as usual with visiting Israeli officials, edited his speech for most favorable local consumption. Marks were made at the end of intended applause lines for Bibi to highlight them verbally. Key Members such as Eric Cantor (R-VA), Steny Hoyer (D-MD), Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Harry Reid (D-NV) were designated as floor leaders and were seated in strategic locations in the Chamber. Once Bibi began his speech the floor leaders would leap up at the indicated cue phrases and begin to applaud enthusiastically. Quite naturally, others would follow either not wanting to appear impolite or to stand out and be noticed as not showing proper support for Israel and its Prime Minister.

In addition, AIPAC staffers who prowl congressional offices daily, let it be known that videos of the Members listening to Bibi would be kept on file and insinuated that how the Member’s performed during his speech to Congress would be taken into consideration when planning this summer’s Jewish fundraising events.

One aide, who supports his boss’s “moderately pro-Palestinian positions”, defended his applause for Netanyahu with these words: “Look, my guy could not just sit there and be conspicuous. Of course he resents being forced to fake support for Israel’s insane policies that he believes harms our country. Believe me*,* many Members feel like him and many Hill staffers are disgusted by what we see. But the guy needs to keep his job to work on other issues like protecting Medicare and stopping home foreclosures. Plus not many of our constituents probably even watched him grovel on TV so it was kind of a freebie for us. What would you have done?”

Empire At Work

Imperial Takeover: Libya is Now a Humanitarian Disaster

"In the words of Former US Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney:

"The sad fact, however, is that it is the Libyans themselves, who have been insulted, terrorized, lynched, and murdered as a result of the press reports that hyper-sensationalized this base ignorance. Who will be held accountable for the lives lost in the bloodletting frenzy unleashed as a result of these lies?

Which brings me back to the lady's question: why is this happening? Honestly, I could not give her the educated reasoned response that she was looking for. In my view the international public is struggling to answer "Why?".

What we do know, and what is quite clear, is this: what I experienced last night is no "humanitarian intervention."

Many suspect it is about all the oil under Libya. Call me skeptical but I have to wonder why the combined armed sea, land and air forces of NATO and the US costing billions of dollars are being arraigned against a relatively small North African country and we're expected to believe its in the defense of democracy.

What I have seen in long lines to get fuel is not "humanitarian intervention." Refusal to allow purchases of medicine for the hospitals is not "humanitarian intervention." What is most sad is that I cannot give a cogent explanation of why to people now terrified by NATO's bombs, but it is transparently clear now that NATO has exceeded its mandate, lied about its intentions, is guilty of extra-judicial killings--all in the name of "humanitarian intervention." Where is the Congress as the President exceeds his war-making authority? Where is the "Conscience of the Congress?"

Should we drug the drinking water? Adding lithium to the taps 'could lower suicide rates'

"Lithium has been heralded by some experts as the next flouride, after scientists found suicide rates were lower in areas where the drinking water had higher concentrations of the element. Researchers from the Medical University of Vienna found areas compared the mortality rates from suicides with the natural lithium concentrations in the drinking water in Austria. Time to supplement? Some scientists believe lithium could reduce suicide rates if traces were added to drinking water."

Our Brave New World mobsters want to finish their soma project for the herd animals by adding lithium to municipal tap water.
Being chemically lobotomized by fluoride in the water wasn't quite enough; we need to be blissful and happy in our enslavement.
It's all about our overlords' compassion about how depressed we all are.

Osama Replacement Coming Right Up

It sucks to live in a society where one of the most pressing questions is how and when your own government will next attack it;s citizens.

The Stage Is Set For a Nuclear False Flag

"The stage has been set for a nuclear false flag in America.

Many in the alternative media have wondered if a false flag nuke attack within America is a real possibility. Would they do it? Who would it be? What cities would be targeted?

Recently, The New York Times reported that the United States is running out of a rare gas that is used to detect smuggled nuclear materials.

The reason given is that one arm of the Energy Department is selling the gas much quicker than the other is able to accumulate it.

While this could possibly be a legitimate reason, it seems highly suspicious that a government that is installing a police state nationwide to supposedly save us from terrorists would be unable to obtain the gas needed to detect smuggled nuclear weapons.

Wouldn’t a nuclear attack on America be the MOST important threat to combat?

Unfortunately there is a long history of suspicious nuclear activity in the United States, with cover story after cover story being spread throughout the corporate controlled media."

Libya: Coalition forces prepare two-pronged blitz to finish off Gaddafi

"The first daytime bombing raid on the Libyan capital Tripoli on Saturday morning heralded a new stage in the military campaign against the Gaddafi regime.

It hit a military storage base in the centre of Tripoli that has been subject of repeated raids all week.

But a military spokesman said a separate mission the night before had taken out watchtowers on the leadership's Bab al-Azizia compound and threatened to begin opening up its miles of bleak green-painted concrete walls up by precision bombing.

"Last night's action sends a powerful message to the regime's leadership and to those involved in delivering Colonel Gaddafi's attacks on civilians that they are no longer hidden away from the Libyan people behind high walls," Major-General John Lorimer, spokesman for the chief of defence staff, said."

It's a laugh riot, isn't it, that "coalition" (you have to admire the fascists for sticking to a term that focus groups identify as warm and cuddly) stormtroopers are smashing and crashing through populated areas in an effort, as they tell us, to protect civilians. It's like psychotic rethugs in american politics projecting everything they hate about themselves on everyone else, creating misery out of thin air, only in Libya it's not just bullshit rhetoric. There seems to be a slight discrepency between NATO's pious pronouncements and reality on the ground:

"Former French foreign minister Roland Dumas visited Libya as a lawyer to prepare a legal case on behalf of victims of NATO bombing and said he was prepared to defend leader Muammar Gaddafi if he is sent to The Hague.

Dumas, who served as foreign minister under socialist President Francois Mitterrand, said he had seen several civilian victims of NATO bombing in a hospital and had been told by a doctor there that there were as many as 20,000 more.

"This is brutal, brutal aggression against a sovereign country," Dumas told a news conference in a Tripoli luxury hotel on Sunday, attended by people introduced as family members and supporters of relatives of civilian casualties.

"At the moment we have been retained, we have a mandate on behalf of the victims of the military bombardment of NATO, who carried out their military action against civilians with the artificial -- very artificial -- cover of the United Nations," Dumas said."

Of course the excuse for this whole murder spree is a crock of shit, just like all empire's justifications are crocks of shit, and have been for a long, long time.
There was an era when psychopaths didn't feel the need to pretty up their criminal behavior, perhaps exemplified by this memo from Winston Churchill to the War Office in 1919:

*I do not understand this sqeamishness about the use of gas. I am strongly in favour of using poison gas against uncivilised tribes.."

Your Daily Mandatory Holocaust Reminder

Israel must stop overplaying the Holocaust card - from Haaretz

"As this week draws thankfully to a close, we are all suffering from a severe Bibiobamal overdose. Before we allow ourselves to switch off and hopefully begin to forget these historical speeches, just one question: What did we learn over the past week?

Four speeches in Washington sought to redefine the history, present and future of the Middle East, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the strategic alliance between Israel and the United States and the Jewish People as a whole - but aside from marveling once again at the rhetorical brilliance of Barak Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu, which we knew about anyway, everything is still depressingly the same: Two failed messiahs delivering empty promises and no chance of deliverance from the cycle of violence, which is turning to another round of almost inevitable bloodshed come September.

Netanyahu and Obama are more eloquent and telegenic than their predecessors, Yitzhak Shamir and George Bush the elder, but it is as if we are back in 1991 and Shamir is saying on the eve of the pointless Madrid Conference, "the sea is the same sea and the Arabs are the same Arabs."

While Shamir's life-mission was simple - get up every morning to fight the Arabs trying to throw us back into the sea - Netanyahu's historical arc is much grander. "We've been around for almost 4,000 years," he lectured Obama last Friday in the White House, and when Bibi gets going through the millennia, you know where he's going to stop. "We've gone through expulsions and pogroms and massacres and the murder of millions. But I can say that ... even at the nadir of the valley of death, we never lost hope and we never lost our dream of reestablishing a sovereign state in our ancient homeland, the Land of Israel."

Yes, the millions again, though you have to give him credit for coming up with that elegant turn of phrase - why say Holocaust when you can go for "the nadir of the valley of death."

"We don't have to give up on the Holocaust - it is our history and holds central lessons for all human beings - but we have to stop using it as a justification for Israeli policies."

Feel The Israeli Love

Cosmetic Gesture Doesn't Go Near What It Should

Egypt Reopens Border With Gaza (sort of)

"RAFAH, border station between Egypt and Gaza — Hundreds of Palestinian residents of the Gaza strip arrived here by the busload Saturday to pass through the reopened border into Egypt, taking the first tangible steps out of the Israeli occupation after years of deadlocked peace talks.

“I feel this is the start of freedom,” said Hasna el Ryes, 45, a Gaza resident waiting to cross into Egypt so she could travel to visit sons studying in Great Britain. “You can’t imagine how much we have suffered.”

While a gradual loosening of the border controls over the last year had already allowed some Gaza residents to cross — registered students or those seeking medical treatment — many of those making the trip on Saturday said they felt a new stirring of hope at Egypt’s announcement that it was breaking the blockade imposed on Gaza five years ago when the militant group Hamas took over.

They cheered the decision as a humanitarian gesture to residents of Gaza but also as an important concession to make possible the reconciliation deal Egypt brokered between Hamas and the moderate Palestinian faction Fatah. And they saluted the Egyptian revolution that brought about Egypt’s new spirit of independence."

This article by the NYT is typical of what you'll find in MSM about Israel and the Palestinians. You would think from the declarative headline that the despicable siege of Gaza is over, that is until you read the fine print, where the border is open to some Palestinians, and is still closed to desparately needed goods to rebuild from the devastating zionist embargo. And of course just three paragraphs in the Times repeats the propaganda line that "the militant group Hamas took over", the usual weasel wording that suggests Hamas grabbed power at the point of a gun, where they assumed control through a free and fair election.
Also, nowhere in this piece ballyhooing the border opening do you get any kind of context why it should be considered historic, such as the fact that Israel has tried to crush Gaza anyway they inhumanely could for the last five + years.
As a matter of fact this seems to be a propaganda piece to make people think there was a huge sea change in Egypt, when in actuality the Egyptian people recognize their "revolution" was stolen and the new bosses are the same as the old bosses.
I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for real change for the Palestinians, for the last thing Israel will do is allow Gaza to recover from carefully orchestrated subjugation for years on end. The Egyptians simply won't buck the ziofascists on this and won't jeopordize the yearly american gravy train. A telling quote from the article -
"The Egyptians are moody,” she said, as an Egyptian customs officer standing on a stool behind a counter called out names and tossed stamped passports into a waiting crowd of Palestinians. “You never know what they will do.


Military Suicides Are Only Punks And Losers Anyway

Obama refuses to send condolence letters to families of suicides

"A bipartisan group of senators is asking President Barack Obama to change the current "insensitive" policy of not sending condolence letters to families of service members who commit suicide.

A letter signed by 11 senators -- 10 Democrats and one Republican -- and sent Wednesday urges the president to "take immediate steps to reverse the long-standing policy of withholding presidential letters of condolence" to families of troops who killed themselves.

The policy, which goes back several presidents, has been the subject of protest by military families. CNN first reported in 2009 about the family of Spc. Chancellor Keesling, who killed himself while serving in Iraq.

The family set up a wall to pay tribute to Keesling in their Indiana home. Along with his uniform and the flag from his burial service, a space was left for the expected condolence letter from the commander in chief.

Upset when they learned a suicide did not merit a letter from the president, Keesling's father, Gregg, wrote to the president and the Army chief of staff requesting the policy be changed.

At the time, a White House spokesman said the administration was reviewing the "inherited" policy. Questioned about that review at a White House briefing in December 2009, the White House spokesman at the time, Robert Gibbs, said a review would be completed "shortly."

"If the president didn't care, the policy would remain unchanged and unexamined," Gibbs said.

Keesling has argued that his son's suicide was a result of what he was exposed to during war and deserves to be considered caused by battle."

Welcome To The World Of Signing Fascist Legislation By Autopen

Welcome to the Violent World of Mr. Hopey Changey

"When Britain lost control of Egypt in 1956, Prime Minister Anthony Eden said he wanted the nationalist president Gamal Abdel Nasser "destroyed … murdered … I don’t give a damn if there’s anarchy and chaos in Egypt." Those insolent Arabs, Winston Churchill had urged in 1951, should be driven "into the gutter from which they should never have emerged."

The language of colonialism may have been modified; the spirit and the hypocrisy are unchanged. A new imperial phase is unfolding in direct response to the Arab uprising that began in January and has shocked Washington and Europe, causing an Eden-style panic. The loss of the Egyptian tyrant Mubarak was grievous, though not irretrievable; an American-backed counterrevolution is under way as the military regime in Cairo is seduced with new bribes and power shifting from the street to political groups that did not initiate the revolution. The western aim, as ever, is to stop authentic democracy and reclaim control.

Libya is the immediate opportunity. The NATO attack on Libya, with the UN Security Council assigned to mandate a bogus "no fly zone" to "protect civilians," is strikingly similar to the final destruction of Yugoslavia in 1999. There was no UN cover for the bombing of Serbia and the "rescue" of Kosovo, yet the propaganda echoes today. Like Slobodan Milosevic, Muammar Gaddafi is a "new Hitler," plotting "genocide" against his people. There is no evidence of this, as there was no genocide in Kosovo. In Libya there is a tribal civil war; and the armed uprising against Gaddafi has long been appropriated by the Americans, French and British, their planes attacking residential Tripoli with uranium-tipped missiles and the submarine HMS Triumph firing Tomahawk missiles, a repeat of the "shock and awe" in Iraq that left thousands of civilians dead and maimed. As in Iraq, the victims, which include countless incinerated Libyan army conscripts, are media unpeople.

In the "rebel" east, the terrorizing and killing of black African immigrants is not news. On 22 May, a rare piece in the Washington Post described the repression, lawlessness and death squads in the "liberated zones" just as visiting EU foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, declared she had found only "great aspirations" and "leadership qualities." In demonstrating these qualities, Mustafa Abdel Jalil, the "rebel leader" and Gaddafi’s justice minister until February, pledged, "Our friends … will have the best opportunity in future contracts with Libya." The east holds most of Libya’s oil, the greatest reserves in Africa. In March the rebels, with expert foreign guidance, "transferred" to Benghazi the Libyan Central Bank, a wholly owned state institution. This is unprecedented. Meanwhile, the US and the EU "froze" almost US$100 billion in Libyan funds, "the largest sum ever blocked," according to official statements. It is the biggest bank robbery in history.

The French elite are enthusiastic robbers and bombers. Nicholas Sarkozy’s imperial design is for a French-dominated Mediterranean Union (UM), which would allow France to "return" to its former colonies in North Africa and profit from privileged investment and cheap labor. Gaddafi described the Sarkozy plan as "an insult" that was "taking us for fools." The Merkel government in Berlin agreed, fearing its old foe would diminish Germany in the EU, and abstained in the Security Council vote on Libya.
Like the attack on Yugoslavia and the charade of Milosevic’s trial, the International Criminal Court is being used by the US, France and Britain to prosecute Gaddafi while his repeated offers of a ceasefire are ignored. Gaddafi is a Bad Arab.


Psychotic Murderers To Do Victory Lap

David Cameron planning celebratory tour of Libya with Nicolas Sarkozy ‘when the time comes’

"David Cameron is to make a victory tour of Libya with Nicolas Sarkozy.

The French president blurted out the secret plans yesterday at the G8 summit of world leaders in Deauville.

President Sarkozy said he and French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe have discussed plans to meet opposition leaders in the rebel stronghold of Benghazi.

He said: ‘I and Juppe will go when the time comes. It should be a Franco British visit. It could be quite clumsy if it was a separate visit.’

"It is the second time in a week that the loose-lipped French premier has put Mr Cameron in a tight spot. His government revealed that Britain was to send Apache helicopters to beef up the war effort--four days before the prime minister signed off on the deployment.

Mr Cameron yesterday rebuffed an offer by Russian president Dmitri Medvedev to mediate a peace deal with the Gaddafi regime.

The Prime Minister made clear that talks could only take place once the dictator has left the country."

Remember that phony, CIA staged Saddam statue pull in Firdus Square? We always got those tight shots of a crowd around the base and were supposed to believe it was a spontaneous show of Iraqi joy:


The fascists need to hide their real reasons for what they do with propaganda shows like this becaus their real reasons are criminal and murderous. And they ALWAYS focus on an individual and continuously demonize him so american dullards can focus their hate more easily. So it was Milošević the butcher and Koresh the child molesting drug manufacturer and Osama the mastermind and Saddam the new Hitler and now Gaddafi the madman.

They make the particulars up as they go along but the overall narrative is the same from one operation to the next. It works like the two minute hate drill in Orwell's 1984, so we're to believe Gaddafi strafes his own citizens with jets and hands out erection pills so his troops can rape more comfortably. Why, he even fired cluster bombs into populated areas! Wait, what, it was NATO who actually did that? And that story about Spain selling them to Libya was pulled out of someone's ass? So don't pay any attention to how the fascists viciously behave in achieving their ends, such as burning the Branch Davidians alive or slaughtering a million Iraqi citizens, we're supposed to know the trouble of smashing and pillaging Libya will all be worthwhile when Gaddafi leaves.

What Do Doctors, Prostitutes And TSA Agents Have In Common?

Bony Arms Embrace The Idiots

As Afghanistan Rises in Revolt, America Sinks Further into Grave of Empires

"Thousands of Afghans have taken to the streets for the second day in northwestern Afghanistan to protest the killing of four people in a night raid by NATO forces this month. While many residents of the city of Taloqan (in addition to the local police force) claim that those killed were innocent, NATO has maintained that they were armed rebels. So far, protesters have stormed a military base and burned a police station.

Echoed by the media, Western forces have claimed that the protests have been infiltrated and hijacked by members of the Taliban. Whether this is true is dubious, and no proof has been provided. The smear of Taliban infiltration is used to de-legitimize the protest itself. The reality is that Afghan anger at the occupation of their country runs deep enough that thousands were willing to turn out two days in a row to protest the killings.

Protests in Afghanistan are frequent – just a few days before there was a protest in Nargahar province after a fifteen year old boy was shot to death in a housing raid. Last month saw tens of thousands of people demonstrate against the burning of the Qur’an by Florida pastor Terry Jones over five days. During these and many other protests there were vocal anti-occupation slogans and attacks on UN forces, soldiers and police.

Public anger in Afghanistan will be the death of the occupation, since it is public anger – over the murder of civilians, over the obliteration of villages by US air power, over the occupation itself – that drives the insurgency."

The "insurgency" has always been against the occupation and Vichy government empire put in place.

The Steadily Increasing Importance To The State To Harshly Suppress Insubordination

All that "terror" legislation was meant to morph existing laws into "disobedience" laws

Man who flipped off trooper faces harassment charge

"The American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado has offered free legal aid to a man facing a criminal harassment charge for flipping off a state trooper, the organization announced today.

Shane Boor, 35, was driving to his work site in April when he saw a trooper pull over another car. When Boor drove past, he flipped the trooper the bird.

A second trooper tracked down Boor at his work site and questioned him about the incident, according to the ACLU.

Boor was issued a summons April 27 by the state police ordering him to appear in Jefferson County Court.

ACLU Legal Director Mark Silverstein said Boor did nothing illegal.

"Our client engaged in peaceful, silent symbolic expression that is protected by First Amendment," he said. "The protection of the Constitution is not limited to speech that is acceptable in polite society. The First Amendment also protects expression that may be disrespectful, coarse or even vulgar. It's rude to flip off a cop, but it's not a crime."

The organization said it will urge prosecutors in Jefferson County Court to dismiss the charges.

A spokeswoman for the 1st Judicial District Attorney's Office said prosecutors won't see the file or any evidence involving the case until Boor's arraignment June 13.

Boor, who could face up to six months in jail if convicted of the misdemeanor, has no criminal record, court documents show."

Smile As You're Humiliated

Not Enjoying TSA Grope-Down is a Suspicious Activity

"The TSA wants you know that should you express any kind of dissatisfaction at having to be prodded, groped or forced through a radiation firing naked body scanner, you will be treated as suspicious.

Even if you merely frown or display any other negative facial expression at the prospect of having your private areas frisked by a uniformed government employee, you will be considered irregular.

The agency has now deployed dozens of “behavioral indicator officers” at 161 airports across the nation, trained to “SPOT” (Screening Passengers by Observation Technique) dissenters.

The TSA states:

“Behavior detection officers are screening passengers for involuntary physical and physiological reactions that people exhibit in response to a fear of being discovered. TSA recognizes that an individual exhibiting some of these behaviors does not automatically mean a person has terrorist or criminal intent. Individuals exhibiting specific observable behaviors may be referred for additional screening at the checkpoint to include a handwanding, limited pat down and physical inspection of one’s carry-on baggage.”

So next time you’re fondled by a hairy 400 pond stranger, remember to smile and look pleased. Do not grimace or display any form of discomfort or you may be prevented from flying altogether. You could even be placed on the TSA’s domestic extremist watch list, and rightly so.

Remember this is ” yet one more challenge the terrorists need to overcome in attempt to defeat our security system.” It is not aimed at everyday Americans in any way."

added - Texas Gets Punked

The Feds Came For It And Texas Gave It

"In 1938, Neville Chamberlain, Prime Minister of Great Britain, returned to England after negotiating a settlement with Hitler and Nazi Germany. After years of Nazi aggression in Europe where country after country fell to the German war machine, Chamberlain, touting the success of his doctrine of appeasement publicly boasted that he had secured "peace for our time."

He had not.

Today Texas faces an aggression more insidious, though less violent, than that faced by Europe in the 1930's and 1940's. This time it flows not from Berlin but from the vicinity of the Potomac River.

Yesterday, the Texas Legislature took a cue from Chamberlain and bowed to a Federal Government threat to shut down air travel if Texas criminalized the touching of peoples genitals by TSA workers at airports.

The United States Department of Justice, in anticipation of the almost guaranteed passage of the bill fired off a letter to the Texas Senate threatening to shut down all air travel in Texas if it passed. Channeling the spirit of Neville Chamberlain, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst in concert with Senator Kirk Watson used this threat as an excuse to work behind the scenes to kill the bill.

Until this legislative session, appeasement has never been a part of the Texan character. The actions and inactions of this session of the Texas Legislature serve to tarnish the memory of the heroes of Gonzales, the Alamo and San Jacinto. They have forgotten the lesson of Goliad - surrendering to tyranny is often followed by your own massacre.

While this legislation and all of the circumstances surrounding it may seem like an odd rallying point for the Texas Nationalist Movement, it must be.

Our Cassandra's Cry has, for years, been that the Constitution of United States has been destroyed and that there is no saving the Union. The TSA's actions in fondling men, women and children is a violation of the rights guaranteed in the 4th Amendment to the United States Constitution. Texans should have the right to be secure in our papers, persons and pants.

We are not.

In addition, Texas should have the right under the 10th Amendment to regulate activities within its own borders and stand against the intrusion of the Federal Government into the lives of Texans that exceeds its Constitutional mandate.

We do not.

In essence, the Federal Government has said that:

The Constitution doesn't matter."

Psycho Murderers Bomb The Hell Out Of Tripoli, Again

Libyan capital hit by heaviest Nato air strikes in two months

"NATO has carried out its heaviest air strikes against Libya's capital in more than two months of bombing, amid upbeat comments from France and the US on progress towards ending Muammar Gaddafi's rule.

Six loud explosions rocked Tripoli within 10 minutes late on Tuesday. These followed powerful strikes 24 hours earlier, including one on Gaddafi's compound, that Libyan officials said killed 19 people and state television blamed on "colonialist crusaders".

The French foreign minister, Alain Juppé, said on Tuesday that the Nato bombing campaign was making progress and should achieve its objectives within months. An alliance official said Tuesday's early strike was "the most concentrated to date".

Here's how the US obeyed Israel and smashed Baghdad a few years ago:

Priorities Of An Israel First Police State

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) says no aid for Joplin without cuts

"The horrific tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri may have also created a political battle in Washington D.C. The death toll from the tornado now stands at 119, making it the single deadliest tornado since modern record-keeping began 60 years ago. The financial toll is also expected to be high, with initial estimates putting damages at around $3 billion. Without significant aid from somewhere Joplin will simply not be able to recover from a tornado that literally ripped the town in half. Today House Majority Leader Eric Cantor signaled that the Congress may not be willing to provide aid without accompanying spending cuts to other programs."

In his speech at AIPAC (see transcript ), Obama gave assurances that American tax dollars will continue to flow in the billions to the Zionist state. His words, you will notice, were met with repeated rounds of applause:

Because we understand the challenges Israel faces, I and my administration have made the security of Israel a priority. It’s why we’ve increased cooperation between our militaries to unprecedented levels. It’s why we’re making our most advanced technologies available to our Israeli allies. (Applause.) It’s why, despite tough fiscal times, we’ve increased foreign military financing to record levels. (Applause.) And that includes additional support –- beyond regular military aid -– for the Iron Dome anti-rocket system. (Applause.) A powerful example of American-Israeli cooperation — a powerful example of American-Israeli cooperation which has already intercepted rockets from Gaza and helped saved Israeli lives. So make no mistake, we will maintain Israel’s qualitative military edge. (Applause.)"

Sarkozy says internet freedom will lead to anarchy

"In an extraordinary attack on internet freedoms, the French president said that governments must be included in regulating the virtual world.

He claimed that excluding officials took 'the risk of democratic chaos and hence anarchy.'

'Now that the internet is an integral part of most people's lives, it would be contradictory to exclude governments from this huge forum,' he said.

'Nobody could nor should forget that these governments are the only legitimate representatives of the will of the people in our democracies.

'To forget this is to take the risk of democratic chaos and hence anarchy.'

Mr Sarkozy''s comments were addressed to an audience of leading multimedia executives who had gathered in Paris for a conference ahead of the G8 summit."

""CIA agent Davis had ties with local militants," read the headline in The Express Tribune.

The Tribune quoted an unnamed "senior police official" as saying Davis was suspected in masterminding terrorist activity.

The Star explains:

In a story published Tuesday, the English-language Express Tribune quoted a Punjabi police official who said Davis was actually working with the Pakistani Taliban in a bid to stoke insecurity in Pakistan and support the argument that its cache of nuclear weapons isn’t safe."

Snoop Society To Reach New Level Of Absurdity

Feds to Mandate Black Box on all New Cars

"The Feds will mandate next month that all new cars be fitted with a black box, according to news reports. So-called black boxes record information about speed, seat belt use and brake application.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has been involved in the use of black boxes since their introduction. In 2006, the safety administration encouraged but did not require automobile manufacturers to install the systems and also did not set a single standard for the way data would be recorded, according to the New York Times.

In February, NHTSA administrator David Strickland said the government was considering making the technology mandatory in the wake of recalls of millions of Toyota vehicles. Strickland made the disclosure to a subcommittee hearing by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.

Now they will make the installation of these device mandatory under federal law. If we are to gauge the reaction of the corporate media, this story is not very important. Outside of industry and technology publications, the story was not reported.

Computer chip manufacturer Intel showed off its event recorder last year following the Toyota recall. “With new vehicles, there will very likely be video cameras inside and outside,” said Intel’s chief technology office, Justin Rattner, in a July, 2010, interview. “It’s not particularly new or stunning, but when you combine the cameras with GPS, you’re geo-tagging the video.”

In other words, your car – like your smart phone – may soon become a surveillance device and high-tech snooping will be mandated by the federal government."

An Autumn Date for the Apocalypse

"OAKLAND, Calif. — Here we go again. A California religious radio impresario who predicted — wrongly — that the end of the world would begin on May 21 revised his prophecy on Monday, saying now that the end is due in October."

just four more million and maybe I'll shut up

"In a rambling, 90-minute speech, broadcast both online and on his stations, Harold Camping, whose Family Radio network paid millions of dollars to promote his prediction, said that he was stunned when the rapture did not happen on Saturday.

“I can tell you very candidly that when May 21 came and went it was a very difficult time for me, a very difficult time,” said Mr. Camping, 89, a former civil engineer. “I was truly wondering what is going on. In my mind, I went back through all of the promises God has made, all of the proofs, all of the signs and everything was fitting perfectly, so what in the world happened? I really was praying and praying and praying, oh Lord, what happened?”

What he decided, apparently, was that May 21 had been “an invisible judgment day,” of the spiritual variety, rather than his original vision of earthquakes and other disasters leading to five months of hell on earth, culminating in a spectacular doomsday on Oct. 21 — something he had repeatedly guaranteed. On Monday, however, Mr. Camping seemed satisfied with his new interpretation, which apparently spared humankind its months of torture for a single day of destruction.

But his shifting soothsaying led to a barrage of questions from reporters, something Mr. Camping seemed to wave off with a wan smile and occasional flashes of emotion.

“The world has been warned,” said Mr. Camping, who said this would be his last interview. He added that his company — which had bought billboard space nationwide to promote the May 21 date — would not promote his new prediction, Oct. 21.

“We don’t have to talk about this anymore,” he said."

Operation "Steal Their Water And Oil And Punish Them For Daring To Replace The Dollar" Expands

British attack helicopters to be deployed

"The Daily Telegraph has learned that Apache helicopters will fly into Libya from a Royal Navy warship, in a joint operation with the French.

As many as 18 British and French helicopters will be deployed to support rebels trying to consolidate gains against Gaddafi’s forces.

The helicopter operation – expected to be supported by Special Forces troops – will take the allies closer still to a full ground operation in Libya.

Whitehall officials said that later this week, the Apaches will begin flying missions in from HMS Ocean, a helicopter carrier in the Mediterranean.

Their use was authorised by David Cameron at a meeting of the National Security Council after the Prime Minister asked military chiefs for new ways to increase the pressure on the Libyan regime."

I would hope Gaddafi has one word in response, MANPADS.

Careful What You Wish For

A Warning to Politicians, Police and the Military: You’re Building a Prison For Us all

"These days it seems difficult to comprehend for many ordinary people why the world seems steeped in chaos, both financial and militaristic.

It feels as if the world is turning on its head as people’s finances pour down the drain of bailouts to private banks at the behest of corrupt governments across the world and armies invade countries in far off lands for increasing dubious reasons which have nothing to do with terrorism or any other ‘ism’ label those in positions of power wish to abuse in the name of a ‘holy crusade’ or ‘just war’. And forget ‘democracy’, if we ever had anything remotely resembling ‘democracy’ it disappeared down the memory hole along with the assumption that we had free speech and a free society.

We’ve not been ‘free’ in any true sense of the word for many a year and it’s only getting worse as tyranny is being imposed through the same corrupt governments, in cahoots with the same criminal banking Mafioso, robbing us of any wealth we may have left in our depleted bank accounts.

So, who is ensuring our demise in light of the obvious crimes being perpetrated upon the ordinary people?

It’s a sad indictment of our society these days that the very people who should be protecting us, the public who pay their wages, are the very people complicit in bringing about the tyrannical system of governance which we have been forced into under the guise of ‘protecting us’ from terrorists from those countries our moronic, yet elected, powerbrokers have plunged us into without ever asking the public for their opinion, or permission, to undertake such a fruitless adventure in terms of any benefit to the people supplying the invading hordes or indeed the victims of such violent and unacceptable, in any human context, invasions of sovereign nations who have never harmed us at all.

We continue to elect and pay astronomical sums to in terms of salaries, expense and perks, when time and again we have witnessed their lies, deceit and corruption repeated by every political party through decades, if not centuries, with corruption and criminality being normal and seemingly acceptable in their profession.

Why do we do that and why do we put up with it? Can’t people see that no amount of voting has ever changed anything for the betterment of society as a whole and has indeed continued to benefit the few at the expense of the many?

These politicians are of course only too well aware that eventually the public will react in some way, whether through the ballot box to vote them out, or as is being seem in Greece right now and to a lesser extent elsewhere, with violence.

I think it’s safe to say that the majority of people do not wish to see, or take part in a violent uprising to oust criminal politicians and their corrupt colleagues in other powerful positions, such as the judiciary or the corporate and endemically corrupt business world. However, those charged with protecting the public are clearly not doing their jobs in terms of protecting the people from the actions of corrupt politicians and others which can only lead to further discontent amongst members of the public, some, if not many of whom, through desperation or simply the wish to ‘get even’ will resort to violence and I don’t think I’d like to be in the firing line of an angry mob, hell-bent on taking revenge for the dire circumstances they find themselves in thanks to the corruption and greed of those in power.

The first people to be the targets of such angry mobs will be those they deem responsible for their troubles, namely every politician in the country. These politicians must understand that the general public know where they live and that they are going to be left to face the consequences of their actions or inactions when they had ample opportunity to respect the wishes of the people and act on their behalf.

When the rope is thrown over the lamp post and the noose tightened around their necks it’ll be too late for apologies.

Will the police stand by and allow this scenario to play out or will they step into the breach to protect corrupt and willing accomplices in the destruction of their country or will they finally step forward to act as they swore to act in the defence of the people?

I’d seriously advise them to do the latter as there are many people, many yards of rope and plenty of lamp posts for anyone stupid enough to take on millions of angry and desperate human beings who simply want to live as free men and women without the threat of despotism on their doorsteps."

The Bullshit Guide

25 Rules of Disinformation

"1. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. Regardless of what you know, don't discuss it -- especially if you are a public figure, news anchor, etc. If it's not reported, it didn't happen, and you never have to deal with the issues.

2. Become incredulous and indignant. Avoid discussing key issues and instead focus on side issues which can be used show the topic as being critical of some otherwise sacrosanct group or theme. This is also known as the "How dare you!" gambit.

3. Create rumor mongers. Avoid discussing issues by describing all charges, regardless of venue or evidence, as mere rumors and wild accusations. Other derogatory terms mutually exclusive of truth may work as well. This method works especially well with a silent press, because the only way the public can learn of the facts are through such "arguable rumors". If you can associate the material with the Internet, use this fact to certify it a "wild rumor" which can have no basis in fact.

4. Use a straw man. Find or create a seeming element of your opponent's argument which you can easily knock down to make yourself look good and the opponent to look bad. Either make up an issue you may safely imply exists based on your interpretation of the opponent/opponent arguments/situation, or select the weakest aspect of the weakest charges. Amplify their significance and destroy them in a way which appears to debunk all the charges, real and fabricated alike, while actually avoiding discussion of the real issues.

5. Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule. This is also known as the primary attack the messenger ploy, though other methods qualify as variants of that approach. Associate opponents with unpopular titles such as "kooks", "right-wing", "liberal", "left-wing", "terrorists", "conspiracy buffs", "radicals", "militia", "racists", "religious fanatics", "sexual deviates", and so forth. This makes others shrink from support out of fear of gaining the same label, and you avoid dealing with issues.

6. Hit and Run. In any public forum, make a brief attack of your opponent or the opponent position and then scamper off before an answer can be fielded, or simply ignore any answer. This works extremely well in Internet and letters-to-the-editor environments where a steady stream of new identities can be called upon without having to explain criticism reasoning -- simply make an accusation or other attack, never discussing issues, and never answering any subsequent response, for that would dignify the opponent's viewpoint.

7. Question motives. Twist or amplify any fact which could so taken to imply that the opponent operates out of a hidden personal agenda or other bias. This avoids discussing issues and forces the accuser on the defensive.

8. Invoke authority. Claim for yourself or associate yourself with authority and present your argument with enough "jargon" and "minutiae" to illustrate you are "one who knows", and simply say it isn't so without discussing issues or demonstrating concretely why or citing sources."



It's Official - Buggering Little Boys Is All The Hippies' Fault

Report indicts '60s counterculture in Catholic abuse cases
A study links child sexual abuse by Catholic priests in the '60s and '70s to the feminist movement, a 'singles culture' and divorce

"Blame the flower children. That seems to be the chief conclusion of a new report about the Roman Catholic Church's sexual abuse scandal. The study, undertaken by John Jay College of Criminal Justice at the request of America's Catholic bishops, links the spike in child abuse by priests in the 1960s and '70s to "the importance given to young people and popular culture" — along with the emergence of the feminist movement, a "singles culture" and a growing acceptance of homosexuality. It also cites crime, drugs, an increase in premarital sexual behavior and divorce.

The problem with this conclusion isn't that it absolves molesting priests of responsibility. Even the study's authors wouldn't go that far. Rather, the flaw with the theory is that it's unsupported by any data or evidence. It thus detracts from the report's other findings, which are based on empirical research. Indeed, aside from its implausible indictment of the '60s counterculture, the report is an enlightening analysis of an abominable chapter in the Roman Catholic Church's history."

Facebook and Google Join Forces to Oppose Privacy Bill

"Facebook, Google, Twitter, Skype and others cosigned a letter “strongly opposing” a bill introduced by California State Senator Ellen Corbett that would force sites to explain privacy settings in “plain language.”

Corbett is sick of social media companies duping people into sharing too much private information. Her recently introduced Social Networking Privacy Act (SB 242) would require a notice before users hand over their personal information to a site. In Sen. Corbett’s own words, “You shouldn’t have to sign in and give up your personal information before you get to the part where you say, ‘Please don’t share my personal information.”

Leering Lothario Forced To Do The Perp Walk For The Cameras, Over And Over

As soon as this story broke it was patently obvious it was a planned takedown.

Was Dominique Strauss-Kahn Trying to Torpedo the Dollar?

"It's all about perception management. The media is trying to dig up as much dirt as they can on Dominique Strauss-Kahn so they can hang the man before he ever sees the inside of a courthouse. It reminds me of the Terry Schiavo case, where devoted-husband Michael was pegged as an insensitive slimeball for carrying out the explicit wishes of his brain-dead wife. Do you remember how the media conducted their disgraceful 24 hour-a-day Blitzkrieg with the endless coverage of weepy Christian fanatics on the front lawn of the hospital while Hannity, Limbaugh and O' Reilly fired away with their sanctimonious claptrap?

And now you're telling me that that same media is just "doing their job?"

Give me a break.

Whoever wants to nail IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has really pulled out all the stops. Their agents have been rummaging through diaries, hotel registries, phone records, yearbooks, yada, yada, yada. The UK Telegraph even paid a visit to a high-priced DC knocking shop to get a little dirt from Madame Botox; whatever it takes to make a randy banker look like the South Hill rapist. And they're doing a pretty good job, too. The cops have made sure that the "Great Seducer" always appears handcuffed and dressed in a "pervie" raincoat with 3-days stubble before they parade him in front of the media. On Wednesday – more grist for the mill – they released his mug-shot, an unflattering, deadpan photo that makes him look like Jack-the-Ripper. Was that the intention?

And, that's not the half of it. The Big Money is exhuming every woman he's ever had contact with for the last 30 years hoping they can glean some damning tidbit of information that will convince the doubters that beneath that sophisticated manner and $25,000 suit lurks a closet Bluebeard ready to snap up your daughters and defile your wives. Next thing you know, they'll be trotting out Paula Jones and Tanya Harding claiming they spent a torrid night with the Marquis de Kahn in a trailerpark outside Winamucca.

Where does it stop? Or does it stop? Are we in for another year-long Clinton-Lewinski feeding frenzy where everyday we hear more lurid details about the sexploits of people who don't really interest us at all?

Aren't you at all curious about who's behind this "lynching by media" scam? This is an all-out, no-holds-barred, steel-cage, take-down. The big boys save that kind of action for the worst offenders, that is, for the insiders who have broken "Omerta" or wandered off the reservation. I mean, they locked him up on Riker's Island without bail, for Chrissake. What does that tell you? Even Bernie Madoff was allowed to stay in his $7 million Park Avenue penthouse while he waited for trial, but not Straus-Kahn. Oh, no. He get's the royal treatment, even though he has no criminal record and nothing but the sketchy accusations of a chambermaid against him, he's carted off to the state slammer where he can mingle with hardened criminals while dining on corn flakes and Wonder Bread.

You call that justice?

Can I tell you what this is all about? It's about the dollar. That's right. Strauss-Kahn was mounting an attack against the dollar and now the wrath of the Empire has descended on him like ton-of-bricks."

"So, Strauss-Kahn finds himself in the same crowd as Saddam Hussein and Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, right? You may recall that Saddam switched from dollars to euros about a year before the war. 12 months later Iraq was invaded, Saddam was hanged, and the dollar was restored to power. Gaddafi made a similar mistake when "he initiated a movement to refuse the dollar and the euro, and called on Arab and African nations to use a new currency instead, the gold dinar." ("Libya: All About Oil, or All About Central Banking?" Ellen Brown, Op-Ed News) Libya has since come under attack by US and NATO forces which have armed a motley group of dissidents, malcontents and terrorists to depose Gaddafi and reimpose dollar hegemony.

And now it's Strauss-Kahn's turn to get torn to shreds. And for good reason. After all, DSK actually poses a much greater threat to the dollar than either Saddam or Gaddafi because he's in the perfect position to shape policy and to persuade foreign heads of state that replacing the dollar is in their best interests. And that is precisely what he was doing; badmouthing the buck. Only he was too dense to figure out that the dollar is the US Mafia's mealticket, the main way that shifty banksters and corporate scalawags extort tribute from the poorest people on earth. Strauss-Kahn was rocking the boat, and now he's going to pay."

Obama Gets On His Knees And Sucks Israel Off While The World Watches And Listens

Palestinian child, you fucking whore

'US lawmakers forced to support Israel'

“Every candidate for Congress at that time had a pledge. They were given a pledge to sign ... that had Jerusalem as the capital city,” McKinney said in an interview with Press TV on Sunday.

“You make a commitment that you would vote to support the military superiority of Israel that the economic assistant that Israel wants that you would vote to provide that,” she added.

McKinney said that if a candidate does not sign the pledge or perform accordingly, “then you do not get money to run your campaign.”

The former Congresswoman said that after she made the pledge issue public “the tactic changed.”

“But this is what is done for 535 members of the United States Congress, 100 senators and 435 members of the House of Representatives have to now write a paragraph which basically says the same thing.”

He comments came as US President Barack Obama vowed to sustain Israel's military superiority over its neighbors at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's (AIPAC) annual gathering on Sunday.

“We (the US) will maintain Israel's qualitative military edge”... “We have increased military financing to record levels,” Obama said."

The Washington Brothel

"In a recent article titled “Jewish Donors Warn Obama on Israel,” The Wall Street Journal reports that mostly unspecified “Jewish donors and fund-raisers are warning the Obama re-election campaign that the president is at risk of losing financial support because of concerns about his handling of Israel.” The coverage is less than critical—framing the story as being about Obama’s need to improve his image with Jewish donors—and ends with a rundown of political factoids and goings-on. Nowhere is there a question about whether it is acceptable for campaign donors to threaten the president over his policies regarding a foreign nation."
