America The shocking truth about the crackdown on Occupy

"The violent police assaults across the US are no coincidence. Occupy has touched the third rail of our political class's venality"

    US citizens of all political persuasions are still reeling from images of unparallelled police brutality in a coordinated crackdown against peaceful OWS protesters in cities across the nation this past week. An elderly woman was pepper-sprayed in the face; the scene of unresisting, supine students at UC Davis being pepper-sprayed by phalanxes of riot police went viral online; images proliferated of young women – targeted seemingly for their gender – screaming, dragged by the hair by police in riot gear; and the pictures of a young man, stunned and bleeding profusely from the head, emerged in the record of the middle-of-the-night clearing of Zuccotti Park.

    But just when Americans thought we had the picture – was this crazy police and mayoral overkill, on a municipal level, in many different cities? – the picture darkened. The National Union of Journalists and the Committee to Protect Journalists issued a Freedom of Information Act request to investigate possible federal involvement with law enforcement practices that appeared to target journalists. The New York Times reported that "New York cops have arrested, punched, whacked, shoved to the ground and tossed a barrier at reporters and photographers" covering protests. Reporters were asked by NYPD to raise their hands to prove they had credentials: when many dutifully did so, they were taken, upon threat of arrest, away from the story they were covering, and penned far from the site in which the news was unfolding. Other reporters wearing press passes were arrested and roughed up by cops, after being – falsely – informed by police that "It is illegal to take pictures on the sidewalk."

    In New York, a state supreme court justice and a New York City council member were beaten up; in Berkeley, California, one of our greatest national poets, Robert Hass, was beaten with batons. The picture darkened still further when Wonkette and reported that the Mayor of Oakland acknowledged that the Department of Homeland Security had participated in an 18-city mayor conference call advising mayors on "how to suppress" Occupy protests.

    To Europeans, the enormity of this breach may not be obvious at first. Our system of government prohibits the creation of a federalised police force, and forbids federal or militarised involvement in municipal peacekeeping.

    I noticed that rightwing pundits and politicians on the TV shows on which I was appearing were all on-message against OWS. Journalist Chris Hayes reported on a leaked memo that revealed lobbyists vying for an $850,000 contract to smear Occupy. Message coordination of this kind is impossible without a full-court press at the top. This was clearly not simply a case of a freaked-out mayors', city-by-city municipal overreaction against mess in the parks and cranky campers. As the puzzle pieces fit together, they began to show coordination against OWS at the highest national levels.

    Why this massive mobilisation against these not-yet-fully-articulated, unarmed, inchoate people? After all, protesters against the war in Iraq, Tea Party rallies and others have all proceeded without this coordinated crackdown. Is it really the camping? As I write, two hundred young people, with sleeping bags, suitcases and even folding chairs, are still camping out all night and day outside of NBC on public sidewalks – under the benevolent eye of an NYPD cop – awaiting Saturday Night Live tickets, so surely the camping is not the issue. I was still deeply puzzled as to why OWS, this hapless, hopeful band, would call out a violent federal response.

    That is, until I found out what it was that OWS actually wanted.

    The mainstream media was declaring continually "OWS has no message". Frustrated, I simply asked them. I began soliciting online "What is it you want?" answers from Occupy. In the first 15 minutes, I received 100 answers. These were truly eye-opening.

    The No 1 agenda item: get the money out of politics. Most often cited was legislation to blunt the effect of the Citizens United ruling, which lets boundless sums enter the campaign process. No 2: reform the banking system to prevent fraud and manipulation, with the most frequent item being to restore the Glass-Steagall Act – the Depression-era law, done away with by President Clinton, that separates investment banks from commercial banks. This law would correct the conditions for the recent crisis, as investment banks could not take risks for profit that create kale derivatives out of thin air, and wipe out the commercial and savings banks.

    No 3 was the most clarifying: draft laws against the little-known loophole that currently allows members of Congress to pass legislation affecting Delaware-based corporations in which they themselves are investors.

    When I saw this list – and especially the last agenda item – the scales fell from my eyes. Of course, these unarmed people would be having the shit kicked out of them.

    For the terrible insight to take away from news that the Department of Homeland Security coordinated a violent crackdown is that the DHS does not freelance. The DHS cannot say, on its own initiative, "we are going after these scruffy hippies". Rather, DHS is answerable up a chain of command: first, to New York Representative Peter King, head of the House homeland security subcommittee, who naturally is influenced by his fellow congressmen and women's wishes and interests. And the DHS answers directly, above King, to the president (who was conveniently in Australia at the time).

    In other words, for the DHS to be on a call with mayors, the logic of its chain of command and accountability implies that congressional overseers, with the blessing of the White House, told the DHS to authorise mayors to order their police forces – pumped up with millions of dollars of hardware and training from the DHS – to make war on peaceful citizens.

    But wait: why on earth would Congress advise violent militarised reactions against its own peaceful constituents? The answer is straightforward: in recent years, members of Congress have started entering the system as members of the middle class (or upper middle class) – but they are leaving DC privy to vast personal wealth, as we see from the "scandal" of presidential contender Newt Gingrich's having been paid $1.8m for a few hours' "consulting" to special interests. The inflated fees to lawmakers who turn lobbyists are common knowledge, but the notion that congressmen and women are legislating their own companies' profitsis less widely known – and if the books were to be opened, they would surely reveal corruption on a Wall Street spectrum. Indeed, we do already know that congresspeople are massively profiting from trading on non-public information they have on companies about which they are legislating – a form of insider trading that sent Martha Stewart to jail.

    Since Occupy is heavily surveilled and infiltrated, it is likely that the DHS and police informers are aware, before Occupy itself is, what its emerging agenda is going to look like. If legislating away lobbyists' privileges to earn boundless fees once they are close to the legislative process, reforming the banks so they can't suck money out of fake derivatives products, and, most critically, opening the books on a system that allowed members of Congress to profit personally – and immensely – from their own legislation, are two beats away from the grasp of an electorally organised Occupy movement … well, you will call out the troops on stopping that advance.

    So, when you connect the dots, properly understood, what happened this week is the first battle in a civil war; a civil war in which, for now, only one side is choosing violence. It is a battle in which members of Congress, with the collusion of the American president, sent violent, organised suppression against the people they are supposed to represent. Occupy has touched the third rail: personal congressional profits streams. Even though they are, as yet, unaware of what the implications of their movement are, those threatened by the stirrings of their dreams of reform are not.

    Sadly, Americans this week have come one step closer to being true brothers and sisters of the protesters in Tahrir Square. Like them, our own national leaders, who likely see their own personal wealth under threat from transparency and reform, are now making war upon us.

US Gov Owners and Donald Rumsfeld poison US with diet sweetener?

The below documentary, "Sweet Misery", starts out slow, but there is a lot in it. If only one tenth of one percent is true, we should not trust the US Government to regulate any food, or drug. We should be concerned about what is being added to our water, our food, and what medicines are approved for use.

After 7000 miles, and 25 hours of footage, "Sweet Misery" reveals one

The toxic long-term effects of aspartame are often dismissed as a "hoax"

The real footwork, however, unravels something less comforting than a
mere "Hoax." "Sweet Misery" is a documentary just released by Sound and

using products like diet soda - which contain aspartame.

However, the tingling stubbornly continued, eventually convincing her to
seek medical advice. Her doctor ordered an MRI of her brain which
resulted in the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.

At first, she was horrified as her condition quickly progressed to the
point that she had double vision, slurred speech, and weak limbs forcing
her to use a wheelchair. Through dietary changes and a host of

Aspartame - Rumsfeld's
Bioweapon Legacy
Dr. Betty Martini, Founder
Mission Possible Intl

Before reading this article everyone should hear James Turner, Atty, explain how Don Rumsfeld called in his markers to get aspartame, a deadly chemical poison approved when the FDA said no: The entire film can be gotten at

Among the many ironies of our modern world is that Gerald Ford awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom-America,s highest civilian honor-to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on January 19, 1977. Just a few weeks later on March 8, Rumsfeld became the CEO of G.D. Searle to take point on a mission to force the Food and Drug Administration to approve for human consumption a known carcinogen and neurotoxic poison.

Mission accomplished: Today some 9,000 commonly consumed products are laced with this weapon of mass misery and millions of people live with chronic illnesses linked to the artificial sweetener aspartame. It is our belief at The Idaho Observer that if some guy named Parkinson can have a disease named after him, then Donald Rumsfeld ought to have his own disease, too. Hence the term Rumsfeld disease A.

Rumsfeld's Disease

A Politically-Induced Biochemical
Disaster Of Global Proportions
By Don Harkins
The Idaho Observer

Today, Donald Rumsfeld is known throughout the world as the zealous U.S. Secretary of Defense who is waging a global "war on terror" in search of "terrorists" and "weapons of mass destruction." Most people, however, are not aware that Rumsfeld himself unleashed a chemical weapon of mass destruction upon the world in 1981-and it,s still out there destroying people all over the world. That "WMD" is aspartame and it has been scientifically and anecdotally linked to millions of chronic illnesses and deaths.

The evidence shows that, with full knowledge of aspartame,s neurotoxicity and carcinogenicity, Rumsfeld, as the CEO of G.D.

Searle, Co., "called in his markers" to achieve U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for the artificial sweetener aspartame, better known by its trade name "NutraSweet."

Consumer advocate attorney Jim Turner, who was instrumental in the 1969 banning of cyclamate in the U.S. for its link to various forms of cancer, met with representatives of aspartame approval petitioner Searle in 1974. The main topic of discussion was neuroscientist Dr. John Olney,s 1971 study which showed that aspartic acid caused lesions in the brains of infant mice. According to Turner, arguably the world,s foremost authority on aspartame,s dubious legal history, Rumsfeld was apparently hired by Searle for one specific purpose: To obtain FDA approval for aspartame.

Betty Martini is the director of Mission Possible, a worldwide consumer advocacy organization formed in 1992 as a voice for those demanding that the FDA reverse its approval of aspartame and order its removal from foods, beverages and medical preparations. Martini is even more bold in her charges against Rumsfeld. Martini believes the Washington insider, former three-term U.S. Rep. From Illinois (1962-1968), secretary of defense (1975-1977) and executive assistant to President Gerald Ford, was hired by Searle because, "He was willing to get a deadly chemical poison, aspartame, approved for human consumption"


In December, 1965 Searle chemist James Schlatter discovered aspartame while working on an ulcer drug. The substance, comprised of 50 percent synthetic phenylalanine, 40 percent synthetic aspartic acid and 10 percent methanol, was about 200 times sweeter than sugar by weight and had no calories. By spring, 1967, Searle began conducting safety trials in preparation for petitioning the FDA for product approval.

Soon after the trials began, lab animals (monkeys and mice) began experiencing adverse effects ranging from brain lesions and tumors to seizures and death. Yet Searle petitioned the FDA for aspartame approval in February, 1973. According to Turner, Searle provided the FDA with over 100 studies claiming they proved aspartame was "safe." Independent analyses of these studies, however, proves conclusively that aspartame is actually a dangerous, neurotoxic, carcinogenic and highly-addictive drug.

Trusting Searle,s promise that aspartame was safe, the FDA approved the limited use of aspartame in dry goods on July 26, 1974. Turner and Dr. Olney formally objected to the approval. Their petition triggered an FDA investigation of Searle,s lab practices which proved that Searle had provided the FDA with inaccurate conclusions resulting from manipulated data derived from poorly-designed studies. The FDA reversed its decision to approve aspartame in dry goods.

On January 10, 1977, the FDA formally requested that the U.S. Department of Justice convene a federal grand jury to determine if Searle should be criminally indicted for "concealing material facts and making false statements" with regard to its petition for aspartame approval.

Among the many charges FDA investigators made about Searle,s shoddy lab practices was how rats that developed tumors would undergo surgical removal of the tumors and then be placed back into the study as if nothing had happened to them.

The grand jury investigation was led by U.S. Attorney Samuel Skinner. In July 1, 1977, while the investigation was being conducted, Skinner left the Justice Department and took a job with Sidley & Austin-the law firm representing Searle. The statute of limitations eventually ran out and the grand jury disbanded without reaching any conclusions regarding Searle and its lab practices.

Amid this controversy, Rumsfeld was hired as Searle CEO on March 8, 1977 and immediately began cleaning house. Rumsfeld, who had no previous business executive experience before becoming CEO of Searle, reorganized several departments in the company and fired many of its high-level managers, replacing them with other politically-connected Washington, D.C., insiders.

Though the controversies deepened and the evidence proving the poisonous nature of his company,s product continued to accumulate, Rumsfeld and his team continued to push for FDA approval of aspartame.

A team of FDA investigators headed by Jerome Bressler attempted to block Rumsfeld, et. al, by publishing what has become known as the "Bressler Report" on August 1, 1977. The report cited several instances where Searle intentionally mislead the FDA in its petition for marketplace approval of aspartame. The FDA then formed a public board of inquiry (PBOI) in 1979 to rule on the myriad safety issues surrounding aspartame.

By this time, FDA investigators and independent scientists had exhaustively reviewed the Searle studies and additional studies had been conducted. There was no doubt, based upon objective analyses of evidence that had accumulated for over a decade, that aspartame was deathly poisonous to lab animals and caused a statistically significant number of them to develop tumors.

On September 30, 1980, the PBOI concluded that aspartame should not be approved pending further investigation of its link to the formation of brain tumors and that the FDA "has not been presented with proof of reasonable certainty that aspartame is safe for use as a food additive."

The coup

Ronald Reagan was sworn in as president January 21, 1981. Rumsfeld, while still CEO at Searle, was part of Reagan,s transition team. This team hand-picked Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes, Jr., to be the new FDA commissioner. Dr. Hayes, a pharmacologist, had no previous experience with food additives before being appointed director of the FDA. He, like Rumsfeld, did, however, have experience with chemical warfare studies while connected to the Department of Defense. According to The Washington Post, Hayes was, "one of a number of doctors who conducted drugs tests for the Army on determine the effect of a mind-disorienting drug called CAR 301,060," at Fort Detrick, Maryland.

The Post further explained why Hayes was the perfect choice to politically force the approval of aspartame: "According to a declassified 1976 report prepared by the Army Inspector General, Hayes had planned a research study to develop the mind-altering CAR 301,060 as a crowd control agent."

The report, detailing Hayes activities beginning in 1972, further indicated that Hayes was involved in similar biochemical mind control research studies until being named FDA director.

One of Hayes, first official acts as FDA chief was to approve the use of aspartame as an artificial sweetener in dry goods July 18, 1981. In order to accomplish this feat, Hayes had to overlook the scuttled grand jury investigation of Searle, overcome the Bressler Report, ignore the PBOI,s recommendations and pretend aspartame did not chronically sicken and kill thousands of lab animals. Hayes, left his post at the FDA in November, 1983, amid accusations that he was accepting corporate gifts for political favors. Just before leaving office in scandal, Hayes approved the use of aspartame in beverages. According to The Post, Hayes, next job was in the private sector where he served as a high-paid senior medical advisor for Searle,s public relations firm.

The aftermath

Within weeks of aspartame,s approval for use in beverages, cans of diet sodas and other sweet drinks were on the market. To help sell Americans on using the artificial sweetener, intense advertising campaigns began programming the public to believe that sugar has lots of calories; calories make us fat and NutraSweet has no calories-therefore it won,t make us fat.

Based upon this almost universally-accepted oversimplification of biochemical reality, aspartame has enjoyed 22 years of marketplace success and is now in an estimated 7,000 to 9,000 commonly-consumed products in at least 100 countries. When Searle was absorbed by Monsanto in 1985, Rumsfeld reportedly received a $12 million bonus.

Not surprisingly, the same adverse reactions seen in lab animals in the 60s and 70s are now being seen in the general population. In his first book on aspartame (1990), Dr. H.J. Roberts stated that in five or 10 years we would have a worldwide plague on our hands if we do not remove aspartame from our food supply. With the printing of "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic (2001), Dr. Roberts declared that the world is, indeed, plagued by a global epidemic of symptoms associated with aspartame use.

* Aspartame is being identified by a growing number of researchers and physicians as an underlying cause of chronic ill health in America and other countries throughout the world.

* It interacts with other substances such as pharmaceutical drugs to produce adverse reactions.

* All metabolites of aspartame (formaldehyde, methanol, diketopiperazine and formic acid) are toxic to the human body and are especially toxic to the brain.

* Aspartame comprises over 80 percent of consumer complaints filed with the FDA.

* The FDA has generated a list of 92 symptoms associated with aspartame consumption that include nausea, dizziness, irritability, insanity, blindness, deafness, weight gain and death.

* The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention claim that 500,000 people each year simply "drop dead" for no apparent reason from what it labels "sudden cardiac death."

* Dementia among all ages (especially the elderly) and learning disabilities among children, in the U.S. and abroad, have been skyrocketing since 1981.

As of today, the number of scientific and studies showing that aspartame is, indeed, an underlying cause of chronic physical and mental illness and death out number studies proving its safety by at least 400 to zero. Proof of this fact can also be determined by what happens in many cases when people stop using aspartame: Their chronic symptoms disappear.

The legacy

Defense Secretary Rumsfeld was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Gerald Ford-the highest civilian honor in America-on January 19, 1977. A few months later, Rumsfeld became the CEO of Searle to secure political approval for a product that science had proven to be a highly-addictive neurotoxic drug that causes chronic ill health, brain tumors and death. The evidence indicates that FDA approval for aspartame was a high-level political priority undoubtedly connected to its capacity to adversely effect the minds and bodies of those consuming it.

Because Rumsfeld placed politics above public health and safety, hundreds of millions of people throughout the world cannot think clearly and suffer from a variety of chronic illnesses. It is, therefore, fitting that symptoms associated with aspartame use be known as "Rumsfeld,s disease."

End of Article

Note from Betty Martini:

Only yesterday in national news we learned diet and low calorie pop will be left in schools which will poison our children. As an example, Coke Zero has aspartame. Aspartame is a chemical hypersensitization agent because it is a neurotoxic drug/chemical poison. It not only interacts with all drugs but all vaccines and other toxins and unsafe sweeteners like Splenda, a chlorocarbon poison. So our children don't have a chance. Only a few weeks ago an epidemiological study by Sharon Fowler at the University of Texas based on 8 years data links diet drinks with obesity. Aspartame also can precipitate diabetes, simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, destroys the optic nerve and interacts with insulin.

In July a 3 year Italian study was released by the European Foundation for Oncology and Environmental Sciences which revealed it causes leukemia, lymphoma and malignant brain tumors. Their July 14 05 report declares: "The results demonstrate ... that aspartame is a carcinogenic agent." How many mothers knowing this would want their children drinking an addictive carcinogenic agent. Aspartame liberates free methyl alcohol which causes chronic methanol poisoning. This affects the dopamine system of the brain and causes addiction. Now understand why the pop companies want this poison in your schools which causes Rumsfeld Disease.

Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., one of the world's leading authorities on aspartame neurotoxicity, extensively reviewed the Soffritti report. "This study confirmed the previous study by Dr. Trocho and co-workers (l998), which also found the formaldehyde breakdown product of aspartame to be damaging to cellular DNA and that this damage was cumulative. The type of damage was a duplicate of that associated with cancers. These two studies strongly indicate that drinking a single diet cola sweetened with aspartame every day could significantly increase one's risk of developing a lymphoma or leukemia."

Dr. Blaylock said further "This study should terrify mothers and all those consuming aspartame sweetened products. This was a carefully done study which clearly demonstrated a statistically significant increase in several types of lymphomas and leukemias in rats. Both of these malignancies have increased significantly in this country since the widespread use of aspartame."

Only the animals exposed to aspartame developed malignant brain tumors and we are now taking aspartame brain tumor cases for litigation in New York, New Jersey, Madison County,Illinois and Mississippi. Simply contact me at

Dr. Blaylock also said "They found that even lower doses of aspartame could cause these malignancies, yet the higher the dose, the more cancers that were seen. Since aspartame can increase obesity and may even cause the metabolic syndrome that affects 48 million Americans, there is no reason to ever consume this product. At the least, it should be immediately banned from all schools."

Any mother reading this article with children in school should immediately take this to their principal, children's teacher and PTA along with the movie, Sweet Misery, and demand that all products with aspartame (NutraSweet/Equal/Spoonful, E951/Canderel/Benevia, etc.) and especially pop with this poison be removed - period, no if's, no and's and no but's. And Board of Educations should also remove the lobbyists and those who would offer money to keep poisoned pop in schools. How much is the brain of your child worth. Remember this is the cause of the epidemic of ADD, ADHD, autism, Tourettes, and behavioral problems.

Rumsfeld Disease may become one of the largest plagues in world history. The list of horrors is unending. Thanks to despicable and greedy Big Pharma/Codex, in England supplements from industry now contain aspartame. Diane Fleming still remains in a prison in Virginia because methanol was found on her husband's autopsy and they thought she poisoned him even though she passed their lie detector test. Doctors affidavits state he died from aspartame which causes methanol poisoning. Athletes like Fleming are dying because aspartame damages the cardiac conduction system and causes sudden death, although his was not sudden.

Enough is enough. Eradicate Rumsfeld Disease from our schools and from our planet.

A puppet dictator brought to Iran by the CIA. Oil company owners got rich, so did the Shah. The Iranian people got the shaft. Then came 1979.

This month’s release of a new International Atomic Energy Agency report into Iran’s nuclear energy program has caused a flurry of diplomatic activity, political posturing, and breathless news headlines about the supposed imminent threat of an alleged Iranian nuclear weapons program.

Given the nature and tenor of the coverage of the IAEA report in the mainstream press, one might be forgiven for believing that the agency has in fact uncovered new signs that Iran has made any concrete steps toward creating a nuclear weapon since it suspended that program in 2003 or that there is any evidence whatsoever that Iran has made any progress in the development of nuclear weapons technology.

In reality, however, the report contains no new information about Iran’s alleged attempts to create nuclear weapons, a fact quietly conceded by even the most hawkish opponents of Iran’s nuclear program, including former weapons inspector David Albright.

Given the distinct lack of any new evidence whatsoever to support the contention that Iran is in fact developing nuclear weapons, the question may well be asked why this report is being trumpeted so loudly in the press, and why the public is being told there is the need for urgent action on this case. The seeming paradox of an urgent need for action on an issue that has in reality remained static for nearly a decade is resolved when one understands this recent round of fearmongering as a small part of a much longer history of western interference in Iranian politics, a history that stretches back for the better part of a century.

In 1941, British and Soviet forces executed a joint surprise attack on Iran. The British were concerned about their Ango-Iranian Oil Company interests, the Soviets ended up securing petroleum concessions before their withdrawal in 1946, and both were interested in securing the Trans-Iranian Railway for the Allied war effort.

When Dr. Mohammed Mossadegh was elected Iranian Prime Minister in 1951, he nationalized the country’s oil reserves, thus enraging Britain,whose Anglo-Iranian Oil interests were once again threatened. The British began an Iranian oil embargo and secured US help in fomenting a coup that succeeded in overthrowing Mossadegh via a CIA operation codenamed TPAJAX that was led by Kermit Roosevelt, Jr., the grandson of the former US President Teddy Roosevelt. The coup ushered in a new era of brutal dictatorship in which the Shah ruled with an iron fist, protected by the bloody rule of his secret police, the much-dreaded SAVAK.

In 1979 an Islamic revolution led by Ayatollah Khoemeini deposed the Shah and installed a new Islamic Republic, although reports persist to this day that Khoemeini had been protected and promoted by the British, French, and Americans, who had become wary of the Shah’s nationalist tendencies.

In 1981, the American hostages who had been seized at the US embassy during the revolution were released in what is now widely acknowledged to have been a political deal cut with representatives of the Ronald Reagan campaign, a deal which supplied Iran with weapons and access to US funds in return for delaying the release of the hostages until Reagan had been elected president.

In 1988, American forces shot down an Iranian commercial airliner with two SM-2MR surface-to-air missiles over the Straits of Hormuz, killing all 290 passengers and crew, including 66 children. It had been shot down by an American cruiser which was in Iranian waters at the time of the incident, and the plane had been in Iranian airspace at the time it was destroyed. The US never admitted wrongdoing for the incident nor so much as apologized, although it did pay a $61.8 million dollar compensation package as a result of International Court of Justice proceedings.

In the light of this historical background, the current round of Iranian hysteria has to be seen as only the latest version of a very old story of imperial conquest in Persia, and part of a greater strategy to dominate one of the key countries in the Middle East.

In its latest iteration, this story relies on the exclusion of a central hypocrisy: that the only nuclear power in the Middle East is in fact Israel, a country with the sixth largest nuclear stockpile in the world that is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty whose weapons have never even been formally acknowledged, let alone inspected by the IAEA.

In this story, Israel, the only nuclear power in the region and the largest recipient of US military aid, supposedly faces an existential threat by the idea that one day the Iranian government might actually develop the capability of constructing a single nuclear warhead. Nevertheless, Israel has been at the heart of the latest round of warmongering over Iran, with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu openly rallying his cabinet for a pre-emptive strike on Iran on the same day that reports emerged of a secret meeting between the Chief of General Staff of the Israeli Defense Force, Lt. General Benny Gantz, and the British military chief, Sir David Richards.

Given the growing number of diplomats, intelligence chiefs and heads of state who have lined up to caution Israel about such a strike, led perhaps most ominously by an increasingly aggressive China and a Russia that still poses a formidable military threat, many are asking what Israel hopes to gain by starting a conflict that many analysts have noted would be the most dangerous step yet on the path to a full-scale World War III scenario.

I had the chance to put that question to investigative journalist Wayne Madsen, who recently penned an article on the issue, earlier this week.

Now, the IAEA is preparing a resolution condemning Iran for its nuclear activities, leaving the door open for yet more punitive sanctions on the Iranian government. As the world braces for what looks increasingly like the early stages of yet another war in the volatile region, Iran continues to deny that it is seeking to develop atomic weapons, Israel continues to dodge the question of its own nuclear stockpile, and the United Nations Security Council looks set once again to be the vehicle for the justification of sanctions and potential war.

Does the UN own the Statue of Liberty?

Does the United Nations control US National Parks such as the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, the Statue of Liberty, etc.?

Statue of Liberty on September 11, 2001 by Wikipedia

Did the UN bring the US into a war, where bombing Libya, and then occupying that country, was to be paid for by US taxpayers?

Text and video about the Statue of Liberty being under UN control [found here].

Americans are being ripped off, enslaved, and our country has been hijacked by international criminals. We the people need to do more than just occupy Wall St.


[These alarming tactics] are what is really behind the mask of American Government.

There is war against the middle class. Listen to the small business owner from Norwalk, Connecticut, talk about Eminent Domain. There is an all out war on small business owners. Small cabins and trailer parks near the ocean, lakes, and mountains are being bulldozed to displace the poor and middle class for exclusive use of the 1% richest. History is being erased. The US Constitution is being used as toilet paper by our ultra rich international owners.

The first 10 seconds there is no sound in below video.

Politicians and their connected, rich developer friends are scamming taxpayers nationwide. This man's story tells it all. Casey Onaitis of 4 Merwin St., Norwalk, CT 06850, doesn't deserve to be put out of his business. Such businesses should be passed on to family or others willing to honor traditions and honestly serving the public.

Casey's Sheet Metal Service, Inc., provides necessary custom sheet metal fabrication and other services Home Depot and other chains do not.

It is a plain shame that working people are being put out of business, put out of their homes, for a scam, a shell game.

Our heritage and history in the US is being torn down and average citizens are being ruined to make the rich richer at everyone's else's expense.

Top Secret America

PBS Documentary, "Top Secret America", full video found here. Officials are talking about torture, murder, illegal detention, war crimes etc. If there were ever war crimes trials where US officials are prosecuted for crimes against humanity this documentary would be a useful tool.

Are US Troops in illegal, and covert, wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Columbia, Yemen, Pakistan, Libya, Syria, etc for bankster and corporate agendas, not anything to do with what average Americans want, or need? Why are we forced to pay for this? Why do we not do something in larger numbers and prevent this involuntary servitude?

The FBI on the surface in the PBS Documentary, "The Anthrax Files", full video available here, may show the FBI as Keystone Cops, but the truth is much more sinister. How the FBI harrasses, stalks, and ruins convenient citizens, and those who stand in the way of the US Secret Police State is exposed. The Anthrax Hoax is more of a smoking gun than any of the other shenanigans that were perpetrated around 9/11.

James Corbett of the Corbett Report talks about many of those same subjects being interviewed by Alex Jones. Video embedded here. Charlotte Thompson Iserbyt talks about what offshore corporate owners and banksters have been up to for decades, maybe even a century in a documentary embedded at the bottom of this post. Are children being educated to be tools of a Secret Police State which serves banksters and corporate owners?

NYC Mayor Billionaire sends goons after Poor

Image [stolen from here] as was Hunter S. Thompson quote.

"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro." -Hunter S. Thompson

Why are the biggest criminals and liars elected in the US? They are for the offshore corporate owners and banksters. How do you make billions on Wall St. and then claim you are a man of the people? The 12th richest man in America, New York City Mayor Bloomberg judge shopped until he got the ruling he wanted to protect corporate bankster interests to go after protesters on Wall St., OWS.

Bloomberg, the tyrant may have just supercharged the Occupy Wall St., being the villain that he is. Bloomberg is a media mecca giant. Is he about informing you, or about censorship and propaganda?

In a truly just society, criminals like Bloomberg would be in jail, not using their billions for purposes of evil, in charge of the asylum. There isn't anything too dirty for Bloomberg, nor his minions, to perpetrate. [Examples]

Why are we paying for Police who pepper spray us in our faces, beat our heads in with clubs, and protect and serve the biggest, richest organized criminals in the world?

So, do you want to make criminals like Bloomberg rich? Do you want to have nothing for your tax dollars as the Bankster run US Military enslaves the world as US KGB police are rising up to beat, rape, murder, spy on you, enslave, and/or imprison you? So, those who are standing up for you on Wall St, OWS, are just a bunch of crazies, with no game plan, right?

If you agree with the above, don't go to Dunkin Donuts, or Starbucks, for you coffee, go to a Mom and Pop shop or your local diner, if any still exist in your area. Don't shop at Wal-Mart.

Those who bought Gold Futures, are they going to be screwed out of their gold when they want to take delivery? Did the criminals on Wall St., really have goods to deliver for all the money that goes through their greedy little banker fingers? Is Bank of America, also, paying the price for being a corporate/investment scam consortium of criminals? If you have a balance in your bank account, do you trust organized criminals to have, and then give back YOUR MONEY?

Police mace peaceful California students at an OWS protest

Text with video:

Uploaded by on Nov 19, 2011

Police in the U.S. have used pepper spray against peaceful students taking part in an 'Occupy' campaign in front of the University of California. Demonstrators had been ordered to remove their camp, but after refusing, officers showed up and and tore their tents down, using force against unarmed people. 10 protesters have been arrested.

Are police officers really part of the 99% being screwed over by the richest 1%? An officer breaks ranks with others, a good trend. If you are asked "Who is the leader?" at a protest, it is an undercover cop or informant out to target the leaders of a movement or protest. The masters of goons will use any opportunity, or black bag op, to deny public access to redress grievances and to express Free Speech in the face of tyrants.

More of their BS:

I learned earlier than many about the abuse of the US Police State. I was asked to be a police informant to turn in those who had firearms, who had a small business, cash, or property that police could confiscate based on actual facts or made up false complaints. They didn't care, it was about targeting families, homeowners, business owners, and outspoken individuals for take down. I didn't want to lie, cheat, and steal. I thought them evil. So the Connecticut State Police toasted me out of my life in Stafford Springs, Connecticut, for not wanting to be involved in their heroin, crack cocaine, prostitution, and crime schemes. I got prison, not actual criminals. [my mugshot]. You live in the same "America" as I do.

Hollywood glorifies Torture, Rendition, and Using Military Captives

Megan Fox Robot Torture P1

Megan Fox is considered a smoking hot actress. In Transformers II, Revenge of the Fallen, this clip shows Megan Fox torturing a human-like robot. Is torture being soft sold to children? Is official kidnapping, rendition, being sold too? Is Hollywood selling war as a neat package? Is the US Military merely an extension of offshore corporations and bankster agendas? Why are there [1700 black budget, secret police/military bases inside the US]? Is the entire US taxpayer money for this worldwide abuse?
