Wikileaks Servers Move To Underground Nuclear Bunker

From Michael Moore

Internet service providers often tell their clients that they offer “bullet-proof hosting.” Whistle-blower organization Wikileaks, it seems, will settle for nothing less than “bomb-proof.”
Some portion of Wikileaks’ servers have been moved to the “Pionen” White Mountains data center owned by Swedish broadband provider Bahnhof, as first reported by Norwegian news site VG Nett last Friday. That data center will store Wikileaks’ data 30 meters below ground inside a Cold-War-era nuclear bunker carved out of a large rock hill in downtown Stockholm. The server farm has a single entrance and is protected by half-meter thick metal doors–fitting safeguards, perhaps, for an organization that raised the ire of several powerful military forces last month when it released thousands of classified Afghanistan war documents.
Here’s a video tour from the IT organization Data Center Pulse filmed in 2008, showing a super-secure facility it describes as worthy of “a James Bond villain.”...

The Masochistic Circle

I was listening to the Alex Jones radio show yesterday when a caller called in to say that his mistrust of congress was so strong that he was concerned about ending the Federal Reserve because then their powers would be back in the hands of congress which he didn't trust.

I thought the caller was demonstrating something which is at the very crux of the problems we have today in the USA. Americans are living out what one could describe as a masochistic circle, constantly falling for politicians that undermine the power of the people, their democratic rights and their representative voice in the government. This in turn worsens the government which gives them even less faith that government can do any good at all, so perversely the people actually end up supporting handing over more power to the very corporate manipulators and the international big business 'mafia' that acts against their best interests. I think I said it best in the chart below. I am open to any suggestions or critical comments on this representation that I hope might help understanding at least one side of the dilemma which we face in the US.

Pimco’s El-Erian Sees ‘Lost Decade’ for U.S. Jobs: Tom Keene

From Bloomberg.

By Mary Childs and Tom Keene

Aug. 30 (Bloomberg) -- A “lost decade” in U.S. employment reflects a change in the structure of the nation’s labor market, according to Mohamed A. El-Erian, chief executive officer at Pacific Investment Management Co.

“This country has very weak safety nets,” he said in a radio interview today on “Bloomberg Surveillance” with Tom Keene. “It is built on the assumption that our labor markets are very flexible, that if you lose your job in California you move somewhere else, you get another job, and what we’re seeing is structural unemployment.”

Global growth will be below average during the next three to five years as developed economies struggle with mounting deficits and increased regulation in the wake of the 2008 collapse of credit markets, said El-Erian, who is also co-chief investment officer at Pimco...

Secret services 'must be made more transparent' (eh...what they really mean is infiltrate anyone who questions them)

From The Independent and Prison Planet.

A Demos report published today, The Power of Unreason, argues that secrecy surrounding the investigation of events such as the 9/11 New York attacks and the 7/7 bombings in London merely adds weight to unsubstantiated claims that they were "inside jobs".

It warns of the dangers posed by conspiracy theories – from hindering counter-terrorism work by reducing public trust in the Government, to encouraging new alliances between extremists based on such theories – and recommends the Government fight back by infiltrating internet sites to dispute these theories...

US Must Stop Printing Money, Copy Europe: Rogers

From CNBC.

"I'd rather have the Europeans running the U.S. central bank than the people running the U.S. central bank, least they know how to try to build for the future," Rogers told CNBC Monday.

“In America, Bernanke just says we'll print more money, we'll spend more money, even though the United States is now the largest debtor nation in the history of the world."

Rogers reiterated that economies in trouble should be allowed to go under, like bad companies.

"The things that have worked in the past... will be you go bankrupt then you re-organize and you start over. You have a painful period for awhile, and then you start over. This has been done in the past 3 or 4 thousand years, and that's the way you do it," said Rogers.

"Trying to push the problem out to the future, and printing money, we just had another example here in the U.S., it didn't work and it's not going to work."

Rogers said that with central banks "flooding the world with money", the only place to invest right now is in real assets, whether it's in "silver, or rice or natural gas".

"Paper money is not going to do it for you," he added.

No Bubble in Gold, Currencies are ‘Difficult'

He disagrees that that there's a bubble brewing in the gold market right now, although he doesn't rule that out in the future.

"I expect there to be hysteria in the precious metals markets in 5 to 10 years. Right now, very few people own gold, and I can hardly call something a bubble when very few people own it," he said.

Rogers also revealed that he is bullish on the agricultural commodity space.

"There are 3 billion people in Asia, and most of them had not had a very good standard of living in the past 100 or 200 years. That's changing and changing very rapidly. They're going to eat more, they're going to wear more clothes…so agriculture is going to do very well."

He pointed out that cocoa stands to do very well.

On currencies, he said it's a difficult asset class to invest in right now, as he expects "a lot more currency turmoil over the next 2- 3 years because of the huge imbalances that exist in the world."

"I would prefer the euro, perhaps with the yen second. Because there are many technical reasons that I'm optimistic about the yen," he concluded.

More On London Spy Murder...

Aangirfan did an interesting investigation into the ongoing London spy murder puzzle. I like what a comment from anonymous said on the site:

I'm guessing the guy had a conscience and learnt something while at the Pentagon he shouldn't have, then mentioned this to the wrong person.

When they murder as blatantly as this without even trying to cover it up, it's a warning to others.

From Aangirfan


Gareth Williams was a UK spy "who made regular trips to the US National Security Agency."

On 23 August 2010, the police found his body in an MI6 flat near to MI6 HQ in London.

According to "a source" Mr Williams’ body was found during a "welfare check" by police following a call from one of his colleagues at GCHQ (Government Communications Headquarters) in Cheltenham. (DEAD SPY GARETH WILLIAMS A)

According to Nicholas Anderson, a Former MI6 agent, "It took nearly two weeks for the FCO (Foreign & Commonwealth Office) employee assistance head to follow up on why he hadn't been at work." (MI6 death: Murder most strange)

1. Reportedly he had been dead for weeks.

Jenny Elliott said: 'He definitely wasn't on annual leave as the security services woman who came to see me after they found his body told me that he wasn't on holiday." (The Daily Mail. )

How did MI6 not notice that one of its Agents was missing ? (MI6 inquiry will ask why it took two weeks to find murdered officer )

And how did they not notice he was in one of their own safe houses ? (Murdered British Spy Found Stuffed Into Sports Bag in Bath of ...)

MI6 Flat

2. Five weeks before Gareth Williams' death, Gareth Williams' 'best friend' was suddenly posted to Denver, Colorado on secret duties.

"A source claimed detectives have been ‘blocked’ from interviewing several potentially crucial witnesses.

"Mr Williams’s ‘best friend’, a female colleague at the Government’s listening post, was posted to work for an intelligence agency linked to the Pentagon in the U.S. five weeks ago.

"The 25-year-old woman and her husband, who also knew Mr Williams, both worked at GCHQ in Cheltenham and were ‘suddenly’ transferred to Denver, Colorado, on secret duties.

Murder squad detectives are keen to speak to her in case she can offer any clues to why someone would want Mr Williams dead...


Erekat: Israeli religious figure urging genocide of Palestinians

Well by Israeli logic then the Palestinians have every right to attack the Israelis in a pre-emptive attack to defend themselves from this genocidal power, no? I'm joking, but unfortunately Israeli foreign policy as well as our own sometimes seems like the bigger joke.

Chairman Of Joint Chiefs Of Staff Says National Debt Is Biggest Threat To National Security

After the "War On Terror," a threat has appeared, one much less likely to interest war hungry neoconservatives or the Israeli lobby. Some in the military however are seeming to notice...

From Zerohedge.

Not China, not Russia, not North Korea, not Iran, not terrorists...According to Mike Mullen, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the "single biggest threat" to American national security is the US national debt, which is either $8.85 trillion (public debt), $13.4 trillion (total national debt), $20 trillion (total debt including GSE debt), or $124 trillion (total debt including unfunded obligations), depending on one's definition of the word "debt." And as Zero Hedge has long been warning, the imminent increase in interest rates (sooner or later), will eventually put the country in an untenable funding position. "Tax payers will be paying around $600 billion in interest on the national debt by 2012, the chairman told students and local leaders in Detroit." The Chairman (the real one, not his pale imitation over at Marriner Eccles) politely forgot to add that the successful rolling of nearly $600 billion in debt per month is likely an even greater threat to national security...

Project Samosa Reveals Canadian Idol Contestant As Suspected Terrorist

This should be a joke. It isn't

There really is apparently a RCMP counter terrorism investigation called Project Samosa.

Apparently one of a group of three muslim men had more then 50 circuit boards. That one of the men was an electrical engineer apparently is not the explanation the authorities are accepting.

From The Vancouver Sun :

Also seized was what police described as a “vast quantity” of schematics, videos, drawings, instruction books and electronic components for IEDs.

Could this just simply be books and manuals an electrical engineer might own from his profession?

The alleged plot was in its early planning stages and “months” away from being operationally viable, Therriault said. “There remained, throughout, a varied degree of imminence to the threat, whether they were going to conduct an attack or not and how it was going to be done” he said. It is not clear even whether specific Ottawa targets had been selected.

Oh I forgot to mention...They also told a woman not to ride the elevator with them. Sure sign of a terrorist.

From The Vancouver Sun. :

One floor below, another tenant recalled that a few weeks ago his girlfriend saw men in robes, with beards and a type of "cone" hat, near the elevator.

When she tried to enter the elevator, the men told her to take the stairs instead, he said.

She returned to her apartment and informed her boyfriend, who went to the seventh floor to confront the group, then watched as five men exited an apartment on the seventh floor, near Apt. 702.

"To me, they look suspicious. Something was up," he said, explaining the men wouldn't look him in the eye or tell him what they had been doing on the sixth floor.

Sounds like they must be terrorists. 10 years?

Oh and then there is even a video of one of these dangerous men...on Canadian Idol.

Building What?

From Building What? and Infowars.

Now is your chance to put a spear right in the heart of those who killed JFK and did 9/11. Watch this new ad about Building 7 and, if you can, donate money for them to put it on as many TV screens as they can. The gloating arrogant destructive beast can be defeated, if people wake up.

The “BuildingWhat?” TV Advertising Campaign is a movement-wide effort to blanket New York City with TV ads in the second half of September featuring footage of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7. The campaign is cosponsored by David Ray Griffin, Richard Gage, Niels Harrit, Kevin Ryan, Bob McIlvaine, Manny Badillo, and several other leaders and organizations. The campaign seeks to raise $500,000 in order to expose over one million New Yorkers to footage of Building 7’s collapse.
The reason why the mainstream media won’t air footage of Building 7 is quite simple – because that footage is the “Zapruder film of 9/11.” On the evening of March 6, 1975 more than 11 years after the assassination of JFK, the Zapruder film was aired publicly for the first time ever, allowing millions of Americans to see with their own eyes the brutal tragedy that had unfolded a decade earlier on a sunny afternoon in Dallas. A few seconds of footage refuting the fairytale of a lone gunman changed the way a people thought about the event of their generation, and public outcry led to a new congressional investigation.
Today Building 7 gives us that same opportunity. When a judge in a New York City courtroom says, “Building WHAT?” in response to hearing the words “Building 7”, it tells us just how well Building 7 has been hidden from public view. But two weeks of TV ads can begin to change everything. For months the New York City Council and Manhattan DA have been educated about the collapse of Building 7. It is now time to raise public awareness so that a handful of courageous officials will have the public support they need to stand up and demand the truth...

Striking FBI TV Interview, CIA Confirmed Red Cell Paper Could Point To New Counter-Terror Agenda Against Americans

In an ABC interview, FBI counter-terrorism expert Bob Holley talks about Americans as a new target of investigation as terrorists. Eerily in the piece a picture of someone typing at a computer keyboard is displayed as the reporter says "the people that worry those in the business of counter-terrorism the most are those found sitting at a computer. Those in this country rejected by others, dejected by the American way of life."

A CIA Red Cell paper leaked today by Wikileaks seems mundane at first glance, but perhaps we are not seeing the forest for the trees. The document is nothing else but all about Americans as a potential source of world wide terror and reasons why the U.S. might want to let other countries extradite American "terrorists."

On the Wikileaks Twitter page, Julian Assange mentions that "CIA usually does not confirm, so CIA likely wants to use Red Cell leak to push for policy change in US."

Could this all be a coordinated PR campaign designed to coincide with a new counter-terror campaign against alleged American terrorists, "sitting at a computer, rejected by others, dejected by the American way of life"?

At the end of the ABC interview the reporter mentions:

This is Bob Holley's last week in Chicago. He's been promoted to run a unit at the FBI's secretive counter-terrorism headquarters outside of Washington. There, it'll be his job to oversee all of the terrorism cases that originate in the United States looking for connections between suspected cells in different U.S. cities and overseas.

Indian Documentary Film Maker Arrested At Houston Airport For Carrying "Jihad Materials": "Jihad Literature", Brass Knuckles and $10,000 Cash

From National Terror Alert.

An Indian documentary film maker was arrested at the Houston airport on last Friday, for allegedly carrying suspicious Islamic "jihad literature", brass knuckles and $10,000 in cash.
The man was arrested at George Bush Intercontinental airport after “acting suspicious,” when airport screener’s thought they saw a possible handgun in a scan of his baggage. Upon investigation, the investigators found the brass knuckles, a manual for a handgun and Islamic literature in checked luggage.

From another article:

State District Judge David Mendoza lowered Kumar's bail from $50,000 to $5,000 after learning more details about the case and that prosecutors were willing to let him plead to time served for unlawfully carrying a weapon in an airport.
Attorneys for Kumar said he has surrendered his passport while he mulls the deal. He does not want a criminal record to interfere next time he visits the United States, his attorney Grant Scheiner said.
"I think that everybody realized that he is not a threat. He's a peaceful man," Scheiner said. "He was here to visit the Hindu Congress of America, to deliver a lecture. It was about an interfaith discussion between Hindus and Muslims about the harms of terrorism."

Note: There is apparently another Vijay Kumar who is a Republican congressional candidate.

Wikileaks Leaked CIA Paper: What If Foreigners See the United States as an “Exporter of Terrorism”?

This paper seems strangely "mundane" as Wired put it. Not sure what the significance of it is, if there is some. Perhaps this was simply getting back to regular business.

From Wikileaks

This CIA "Red Cell" report from February 2, 2010, looks at what will happen if it is internationally understood that the United States is an exporter of terrorism; 'Contrary to common belief, the American export of terrorism or terrorists is not a recent phenomenon, nor has it been associated only with Islamic radicals or people of Middle Eastern, African or South Asian ethnic origin. This dynamic belies the American belief that our free, open and integrated multicultural society lessens the allure of radicalism and terrorism for US citizens.' The report looks at a number cases of US exported terrorism, including attacks by US based or financed Jewish, Muslim and Irish-nationalism terrorists. It concludes that foreign perceptions of the US as an "Exporter of Terrorism" together with US double standards in international law, may lead to noncooperation in renditions (including the arrest of CIA officers) and the decision to not share terrorism related intelligence with the United States.

Complex Smear Or Just A Night Out In Sweden?

The New York Times is going with the latter of course as you can read about here.

The femme fatale (for lack of a better term, it's late) in this case now has been revealed to be Anna Ardin.

Now it would appear on first glance that this might just be a situation of jealous lovers and perhaps slightly vengeful women. Probably this is the case.

Or not?

One website points out that Anna's cousin is in the military.

If this is really her cousin, then he is a high ranking military officer who gives lectures with international participants on "counter influence activities" and "War Gaming 4GW."

Anna Ardin in a university paper on Cuba also thanks a "Mattias" for getting her out of the island caribbean country when the Cuban government became suspicious of her activities there.

Ok, a lot of people have family in the military. But it might be a little odd that this is the woman who Assange would not only end up having an affair with but also was his personal secretary involved with many details of his visits and appointments.

Even if it is just a case of jealous, slightly mad behavior, then still the question remains....who leaked the information to the tabloid press within hours? On the website of the Swedish Prosecution Authority it says that they did not.

(Update: I pulled this post because it disgusts me writing about people's personal lives and I thought maybe the issue would die out. But after seeing the Wall Street Journal and lawyers for the women still pushing the issue, I am reposting it.)

At a time when the UK banking system is massively underwater, and exists only due to billions in ongoing daily government support, the last thing the country (or any other) needs is a forced locked out from one's bank account. Which is precisely what happened over the weekend in the UK, when Barclays clients were unable to access their accounts, or withdraw cash with no advance notice. Reuters reports that "thousands of Barclays customers in Britain were unable to access their bank accounts or withdraw money from cash machines on Saturday after a system crash caused chaos nationwide..."

Israel Knesset Member Declares "We Are Preparing For War"

From Zerohedge.

In an interview by Likud Knesset Member Danny Danon, speaking with WND senior reporter Aaron Klein, who hosts an investigative program on New York's WABC 770 AM Radio, the Israeli said that "Israel is preparing for a time of war...We are ready for all scenarios, and we are able to defend our civilian population. I cannot tell you how long we can wait more. But we prefer to wait and see if the international bodies are acting, or [whether] it will be only the burden of Israel, like it was in the early '80s, when the great leader, Menachem Begin, [made] the great decision to bomb the nuclear reactor in Iraq." He concluded: "We don't want this to be a war of Jews against Muslims. It should be a war of Western civilization [against] Iran." Good luck explaining that to 1.5 billion Muslims around the world...

Headless, mutilated bodies hung from Mexico bridge

(Reuters) - Four decapitated and mutilated corpses were strung from a bridge in a popular getaway outside the Mexican capital on Sunday, the latest atrocity as the country battles an escalating drug war.

The bodies of the four young men were discovered early on Sunday, hung upside down by their feet from a bridge near a wealthy area of Cuernavaca, a leafy city about an hour outside Mexico City, where many of the nation's elite own homes...

FDIC Swan Song: 8 Banks a Week

From Seeking Alpha

The FDIC closed down eight banks last week bringing this year's total to 118 so far. Included in this week's closures was the notorious ShoreBank in Chicago. In a separate report, the U.S. Treasury has disclosed that the Obama administration's HAMP (Home Affordable Mortgage Program) seems to be rapidly falling apart. This could further weaken the U.S. banking system.

The FDIC is operating on both borrowed time and borrowed money. This agency is the bulwark protecting American's savings in the case of failed banks, but the FDIC itself is close to going broke. The eight closures this week alone cost the FDIC’s deposit-insurance fund $473.5 million. The deposit insurance fund was already $20.9 billion in the hole at the end of the fourth quarter in 2009. In order to plug the hole and keep going, the FDIC in December forced banks to prepay three years of insurance premiums and raised about $45 billion by doing so. That money had to pay off the deficit already accumulated and then last for the next 156 months of bailouts. There have been weeks this year when the FDIC has had to shell out close to $1 billion for bank rescues. That $45 billion isn't going to last much longer...

...Based on this week's events, I have written the following theme song for the FDIC (maybe Sheila Blair will sing it at the next board meeting) to be sung to the tune of the Beatles 'Eight Days a Week':

Oh I'll bail out your bank babe,
Guess you know it's through,
Hope you like the money banker,
When I'm funding you,
Spent it, Lost it, Pay Me, Save Me
Don't do nothing but bailouts,
Eight banks a week

Australian Intelligence Warned Wikileaks of Possible Dirty Tricks.

Here are some things I took from the Assange / Al Jazeera interview posted below.

1. Australian Intelligence warned Wikileaks of possible dirty tricks. Another interview reveals that Australian intelligence is playing a neutral role by not fully cooperating in tracking down, spying on or incriminating individual Wikileaks members because of concern of public opinion in Australia.

Assange: The Australian government received a high-level request to engage in some state surveillance and perhaps some collections of evidence against our people in Australia that was denied mostly by the Australian government with the exceptions of willing to give out some movements of where our people were. It was felt that actions which might result in Australian journalists spending time in overseas prison would not be politically acceptable to the Australian public, and the Australian government is approaching an election in five to six weeks’ time.

2. The "Pentagon so far is not aware of any incident of people coming to harm by what we have released."

This point is especially important since there are just masses of ignorant people claiming Wikileaks is just evil incarnate and has just sooo much innocent blood on their hands. Many uninformed people probably believe this truly while many others are just using it as a talking point to manipulate the gullible.

3. Assange responds back and says that Robert Gates is "wading his whole life in blood."

This Video Is A Good Laugh!

Note: Assange has since been cleared of the charges. (See earlier article for details)

You must listen to this interview. It will make you laugh out loud. Even the prosecutor from Sweden who is interviewed laughs at herself at one point because she basically knows nothing about the case at all except that there is an arrest warrant. Good job TJ from CNN. It certainly fits into the theme of this blog. Some observations on the War on Terror and other contemporary farces. Good viewing.

Establishment Initiates Rape Smear Campaign On Assange And Wikileaks

UPDATE: CNN itself is also suggesting this might be a U.S. smear campaign.

Well, it is to be expected if some David somewhere decides to stand up against the Goliath of the Military-Industrial Complex, the scumbags won't just sit there and take it.

Rape charges are a clever but typical smear move. With the mental capacity of many not being so very high, just combining the two words 'Wikileaks" with 'rape" is a victory for the establishment and an effective smear.

One Indian news website even writes: "In a suspicious development that seems to be a smear campaign against Assange, a Swedish tabloid on Saturday, Aug 21 reported that an arrest warrant has been issued for WikiLeaks founder on suspicion of rape."

Assange denies the allegations from Twitter: "the charges are without basis and their issue at this moment is deeply disturbing."

Of course they don't have to have any basis. It's an easy smear operation if the pro-war forces have connections at the National Prosecutors Office in Sweden, or elsewhere and one would think that Sweden in not immune from establishment, CIA, White House or Pentagon connections.

In a Reuters article Assange is quoted as saying "Why these accusations are popping up right now is an interesting question. I have not been contacted by police. These allegations are false"

In a BBC article Wikileaks responds: "No-one here has been contacted by Swedish police", and that it had been warned to expect "dirty tricks".

I doubt this smear campaign will have long legs or ultimately be successful (it might backfire hugely) for its originators and will mostly only convince those who are already spitting venom at Wikileaks, but we will see. I think it shows the desperation of the establishment to eliminate anyone who opposes them and anyone who does still possess some intelligence must see the allegations as suspicious. In this way I think the pro-war establishment is overreaching a bit and it could come back to simply expose the bullshit which leaks out their ears, noses and mouths. We will see what the next moves are in this chess game between the scumbags of the Military-Industrial Complex and those who care about the truth.

Here is a link to a google translation of the original newspaper article which came out with the story in Sweden. Though we are dealing with a problematic translation, it does appear at least obvious that the police are looking for many women to come forward. "Women are terrified and dare not participate. The police believe that in this case, the offender's position of power that women are afraid of."

Ha Ha Ha. Julian Assange as serial rapist! Yes, in between news conferences, proofreading documents and intellectual dicussions he goes around hunting women to rape all around Sweden.

If you believe that one, I've got a bridge to sell you.

From Wake Up 1776

(Editor's Note: I would only like to add that while living in Austria a few years ago I remember some young Austrians characterizing how they addressed their parents and grandparents about the Nazi times as asking the question "How could you be so stupid?" No, we aren't the Nazis. We haven't lived through a defeat in a world war and a complete collapse of our economy and currency yet either. One people will never exactly copy another either. But what we are without doubt is a country of childish, ignorant, backwards, anti-intellectual, spoiled and misinformed people who want very bad to believe we are God's greatest gift to humanity. We have, like the Germans and Austrians 70 years ago, been lied to about many events that surround us, and through that deception, have engendered a dangerous hate and disregard for principle, rationality and honesty. Our corrupt leadership in many ways is what such a people deserve. If anyone cares about the future, they need to smarten up. -George)

From Prison Planet.

...Far from being the mere ‘son of a goat herder’ (as he deceptively paraded during and even before his candidacy), strong evidence has emerged that President Barack Obama is the product of the intelligence community. Investigative reporter and former NSA employee Wayne Madsen has put together an extensive three-part (and growing) series with conclusive proof and documentation that Barack Obama Sr., Stanley Ann Dunham, Lolo Soetoro and President Barack Obama himself all hold deep ties to the CIA and larger intelligence community.

Morons Mad About Mosque

The official story of 9/11 is a lie. As Andreas Von Bülow said:

...planning the attacks was a masterwork, in technical and organizational terms. To hijack four big airliners within a few minutes and fly them into targets within a single hour and to do so on complicated flight routes! That is unthinkable, without backing from the secret apparatus of state and industry.

Or as another unnamed source from a previous post said:

...This was not primarily Islamic at all. I'm sure there were Islamic elements, but what is behind this, is a deeply embedded conspiratorial and organized operation, that took two-plus years to put together. These were people, who were able to make sophisticated moves on the markets, right before it happened...

The controversy over a mosque in Manhattan is like children screaming about a boogey man. Don't worry children, we will find a little night light for you, so the boogey man doesn't get you.

(Even if you do believe that we are in a Holy Way against the Muslims, you have to deal with your own constitution bucko....here is the First Amendment, it's pretty clear: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances...And unlike in Israel: "The Establishment Clause of the First Amendment prohibits the establishment of a national religion by the Congress or the preference of one religion over another, non-religion over religion, or religion over non-religion" -Wikepedia)

Remember the One About the Couple with the “Hit List” in Alaska? Drug Addled Husband Had Some Help from Undercover Cop

From Cryptogon and AP

...Rockwood’s public defender claims her client was lonely in King Salmon and befriended an undercover Alaska State Trooper while attending mosque during trips to Anchorage.
“The relationship clearly was fed by the trooper’s interest in Mr. Rockwood and the drama created by their conversations,” his attorney, Sue Ellen Tatter, wrote in her sentencing memo...

“...All of Mr. Rockwood’s behavior with the state trooper was talk or paperwork. None of Mr. Rockwood’s close associates, including his father, his wife and friends in King Salmon, believed he was capable of planned violence,” Tatter wrote...

This is pure speculation as there may be much more significant evidence, but could it have gone like this?

Trooper: Yeah Bilal, I am sure you must be angry, real angry at some people who are murdering innocent muslims and lying about it.
Rockwood: Yeah totally.
Trooper: Man don't you think X, Y, and Z deserve to be shot or something?
Rockwood: I don't know. Yeah, a shot right to the head is what they deserve. Or you could mail bomb them like the Unabomber.
Trooper: Yeah!
(As Rockwood goes to use the toilet, the state trooper scribbles down in his notebook: Suspect discusses shooting and mail bombing X, Y, and Z)

8 years in prison...

Also note that in earlier articles it was stated that Rockwood gave a hitlist to his wife to deliver to someone. It now appears from this article that the trooper may have been the one who actually compiled the hitlist.

“When federal agents showed him the list — which they obviously obtained from the undercover trooper — Mr. Rockwood stated: ‘I’m surprised he (the Trooper Sgt.) compiled this …’ Mr. Rockwood did not admit that he himself compiled the list,” Tatter wrote.

Also previously the couple denied the hitlist altogether.

Paul Rockwood is specifically charged with denying at the May 19 meeting that he created the list, denying the purpose of the list and denying ever having such a list of names. Nadia Rockwood denied delivering a hit list, telling the FBI it was only a book and an ordinary letter.

The Ecstasy of Empire.

Paul Craig Roberts
August 16, 2010

The United States is running out of time to get its budget and trade deficits under control. Despite the urgency of the situation, 2010 has been wasted in hype about a non-existent recovery...

...Here is what can be done. The wars, which benefit no one but the military-security complex and Israel’s territorial expansion, can be immediately ended. This would reduce the US budget deficit by hundreds of billions of dollars per year. More hundreds of billions of dollars could be saved by cutting the rest of the military budget which, in its present size, exceeds the budgets of all the serious military powers on earth combined.
US military spending reflects the unaffordable and unattainable crazed neoconservative goal of US Empire and world hegemony. What fool in Washington thinks that China is going to finance US hegemony over China?
The only way that the US will again have an economy is by bringing back the offshored jobs...

...Obviously, the corporations and Wall Street would use their financial power and campaign contributions to block any legislation that would reduce short-term earnings and bonuses by bringing jobs back to America. Americans have no greater enemies than Wall Street and the corporations and their prostitutes in Congress and the White House.
The neocons allied with Israel, who control both parties and much of the media, are strung out on the ecstasy of Empire.
The United States and the welfare of its 300 million people cannot be restored unless the neocons, Wall Street, the corporations, and their servile slaves in Congress and the White House can be defeated.
Without a revolution, Americans are history.

Nukes Not Traceable?

An article in the NYT last month concerning a report by the National Research Council seems to suggest that the U.S. might no longer be capable of telling where a nuke would come from in a nuclear terror incident. The traceability of nuclear weapons has been one obstacle to speculation of a nuke being used in a false flag by some secret cabal working inside governments with evil intentions. Now that obstacle might be dissolving. That's one disturbing way of interpreting that at least.

None of this definitely means war is coming, but it certainly suggests it could very well be.

U.S/Korean Military Exercises And Terror Drills Start Including "Simulated Attack"

From The Washington Post

TOKYO -- Amid threats from North Korea, 86,000 U.S. and South Korean troops on Monday launched their latest round of joint military exercises, described by South Korean President Lee Myung-bak as a deterrent against war.

The 11-day drills, unlike naval exercises held last month in the Sea of Japan, are based largely on computer-simulated war games and are being held in the southern part of the peninsula.

In tandem with the exercises, 400,000 South Korean government employees will participate in an anti-terrorism drill that includes a simulated attack. Seoul will host the Group of 20 summit in November, and both U.S. and South Korean intelligence agencies fear a terrorist attack from Pyongyang.

On Sunday, North Korea threatened to respond to the drills with what a military spokesman called the "severest punishment" that anyone in the world has ever faced. Pyongyang routinely responds to U.S-South Korean exercises with threats, but tensions on the Korean Peninsula have been high since the March sinking of a South Korean warship. Seoul and Washington have blamed the sinking of the Cheonan on a North Korean torpedo attack....

Big Brother Food Bill?

From Infowars.

S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US. It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money.
“If accepted [S 510] would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God.” ~Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower
It is similar to what India faced with imposition of the salt tax during British rule, only S 510 extends control over all food in the US, violating the fundamental human right to food.

Monsanto says it has no interest in the bill and would not benefit from it, but Monsanto’s Michael Taylor who gave us rBGH and unregulated genetically modified (GM) organisms, appears to have designed it and is waiting as an appointed Food Czar to the FDA (a position unapproved by Congress) to administer the agency it would create — without judicial review — if it passes. S 510 would give Monsanto unlimited power over all US seed, food supplements, food and farming...

An Inside Look Into U.S. Military "Justice"; US Judge OKs confession extracted by threatening {15 y. old} suspect with fatal gang rape

From Raw Story

In one of the first military commissions held under the Obama administration, a US military judge has ruled that confessions obtained by threatening the subject with rape are admissible in court.

The case involves Omar Ahmed Khadr, a citizen of Canada who was apprehended in Afghanistan when he was 15 years old and has remained in Guantanamo Bay for the last seven years awaiting trial for terrorism and war crimes...

...Globe and Mail reports,

In May hearings, a man identified as Interrogator 1 said in testimony that he threatened Mr. Khadr with being gang-raped to death if he did not co-operate. That interrogator was later identified as former U.S. Army Sergeant Joshua Claus. He has also been convicted of abusing a different detainee and has left the military.
Mr. Khadr’s military-appointed lawyer, Lieutenant-Colonel Jon Jackson, argued this instance, as well as other alleged instances of torture and coercion, are enough to render any future confessions – even those in so-called “clean” interrogations – inadmissible in court.
Although Khadr's confessions were obtained in this manner, the military judge presiding over the case ruled they are still admissible as evidence...

Fed Leads America “To The Brink Of Collapse”

From Prison Planet

When even the New York Times and CNN are admitting that the United States faces not only a double-dip recession but potentially a new great depression, any alarm bells that have not been rung should now be sounding loudly.
Following in the footsteps of the New York Times’ David Krugman, who in June wrote that the United States had entered a third depression similar to the Long Depression of the 19th century, CNN Money carried an article yesterday brazenly entitled, Is this finally the economic collapse?.
The piece, written by Keith R. McCullough, points out that the Fed’s announcement that it will start buying Treasury debt, is a “crossing the Rubicon” moment and “could lead the country to the brink of collapse”.
“Crossing the 90% debt/GDP threshold is the equivalent of crossing the proverbial Rubicon of economic growth. It’s a point from which it’s almost impossible to return,” states the article, adding that the market has not responded to quantitative easing so to engage in more of the same would be completely futile...
