Friday morning DODD & others called for Nationalization of the banks.
Friday afternoon GEITHNER and OBAMA's press Secretary said "ain't gonna do it".
Monday they said they will increase Government ownership of CITI to 40% which is a continuation of incremental Nationalization.
Saying one thing and doing another is already the hallmark of the OBAMA administration as it is occurring over and over again on an array of subjects.  
After the packs again moved Saturday p.m. as reported here deliveries were scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Sunday. Multiple confirmations say OBAMA stopped the intended deliveries at 11 a.m. Sunday morning.
 Up to this point WE are quite sure our intell is correct. Many sources say the deliveries were stopped at the request of others who supposedly said they were not ready for us yet, therefore deliveries would be delayed till Tuesday. If they were not ready why were the packs out for delivery? It smelled fishy on its face but what the heck,
 like you we would rather believe this storyline than the alternative which was and is, simply, OBAMA stopped deliveries again as he has done several times before. 
Now it's Tuesday and already WE are hearing of another delay till Wednesday even though the IMF, when moved from Tuesday to Wednesday to accommodate our delay until Tuesday     was once again assured Wednesday was "set in stone" for them.
    Now they will be moved to Thursday and this week begins to look exactly like many previous weeks, day by day delays with the same excuses being regurgitated over and over again. It the midst of all this WE continue to hear OBAMA is doing the blocking, intell which remains at odds with most sources/messengers. His motivations are unknown except to say he is surrounded by and controlled by Illuminati.  
Statements that "this is above him" as was said about BUSH avoids the reality of the moment and the FACT that deliveries are stopped again and again
even when the packs are moving toward us.
The President speaks to a joint session of Congress and the American people tonight. It will be interesting to see whether his speech has anything to do with the delays, doubtful but possible. There exist substantial disagreement regarding some of the details of what is going on behind the scenes     so we will again avoid explaining the various storylines just as WE avoided the paperwork revisions and do-over signatures of SARKOZY and OBAMA last Friday
 as we try to act in all of our best interest which sometimes requires silence.  
The announced "stress test" the banks are undergoing right now may very well have something to do with Basel II & III requirements. With no source of new capital available other than Government (taxpayer) funds and the common knowledge they are insolvent, the "stress test" may be to provide cover and explanation for the next step in recapitalization which might be announced by OBAMA tonight
 or by GEITHNER when he finally makes his long promised and continually delayed presentation of this leg of their three legged stool.
Whoever says whatever, they are going to take the toxic assets and lay them off on the taxpayers which is criminal
and socializes the debt
 while the criminals keep the good assets and the profits if any 
while the Congress sits there sucking their thumbs allowing it to happen.
WE THE PEOPLE are catching onto their scams    and the natives are restless.
WE remain convinced deliveries are imminent and as is sometimes the case, some of the reasons for our confidence in this view    are best left unmentioned here.

February 23, 2009 11:43 PM BELLRINGER'S RESPONSE TO HAL TURNER’S ARTICLE of February 23, 2009 “END GAME this Summer?”
February 23, 2009 10:26 PM HAL TURNER: END GAME -- THIS SUMMER ?!
BELLRINGER'S RESPONSE  :   February 23, 2009
Hal Turner projects a one-way street of gloom and doom with no alternatives. I remind you that Creator God Aton, too, has a Plan that most people do not see. He has said that Martial Law will not be allowed in the United States of America. How can this be, given Hal Turner’s Scenario?
Because the bankers and politicians have absolutely refused to give up, and have blocked delivery of the Prosperity Program and Farm Claims, we are being carried to the very edge of the abyss. By Barack Obama’s order this process was again stopped on Sunday, February 22, 2009.
In these next few days watch what happens.
Tuesday, Obama is to announce the nationalizing of some banks. The U.S. Government will then own your money, IRA’s, etc.
This will make people angry, more angry than they are already. Maybe most of the banks will be put under government control. There will be unrest, maybe rioting in some cities, so that Obama will decide to declare martial law.
At that point Obama will inform the military of his plans, and they will not support him, but do a military coup, allowing for the announcement of NESARA, removal of the heads of state, Congress, U.S. Supreme Court, etc. This will be followed by the deliveries and funding of these programs. Alex Jones’ “End Game” will be stopped short of martial law and the concentration camps.
This is the “Plan” I see happening. Pray with me that it is so! You would be wise to have some food and cash on hand for this week at least. Do that immediately, but be calm, knowing the Creator God is still in charge of the “show”.
Hatonn, Sananda, Germain and all the Star People and Lightworkers did not come all this way to be defeated. This is the birthing of Truth and Light.
Be wise and in peace!
In Love and Light,

US Orders Project ENDGAME To Begin, 775,000 Americans
 Targeted For Arrest
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

A stunning Russian Foreign Ministry report is stating today that the
President Obama has secretly ordered the ‘immediate’ opening of
America’s vast gulag of concentration camps, built since 2001 and
estimated able to hold a further 1 million of their citizens,
which is aside from the 2.3 million currently imprisoned in what has become the
World’s largest Prison Nation in all of history, in what they are calling Project ENDGAME.
These reports say that President Obama’s administration is being driven
by the ‘outright fear’ over what they say will be an ‘explosion’ of
massive social upheaval this coming summer due to their Nations economic
collapse which has nearly totally destroyed their ability to maintain
their food stocks as tens of thousands of US farmers have had to resort
to the mass slaughter of their bird flocks, swine and cattle herds they
are unable to feed            due to their not being able to gain access to their
much needed Farm Operating Loans they survive on until their crops come
in and their flocks and herds are ready for market. 

The American farmers being cut off from these operating loans is eerily
reminiscent of the 1930’s Great Depression which likewise saw the total
collapse of the United States being able to feed itself and which
Russian historian Boris Borisov has estimated killed over 10 million Americans.

It is important to note that Dr. Borisov’s seminal research on the
massive numbers of Americans killed during their Great Depression is
still banned from being published in the United States
 though the figures supporting his claims come from the US’s own government compiled
statistics,    and as we can read as reported by the Russia Today News Service:
“As I was doing comparative research of the American Great Depression in
the 1930s, and the Great Depression of the 1990s in Russia,
 I grew interested in the social dimension of the tragedy. It was logical that I
looked up official American documents and found out that the
discrepancies were so obvious that any independent researcher would not
but have doubt about the official U.S. statistic data.
 All appears to be rather interesting. I will come to that later.

The U.S. Congress added fuel to the fire by adopting resolutions nearly
every year blaming the Soviet government for alleged staged famine in
the 1930s in Ukraine. The first resolution came in 1988, 50 years after
the events described.
 The current members of Congress wonder about the
following, and I quote, “people in the government were aware of what was
going on, but did not do anything to help the starving”.

At that very period of 1930s, the wealthy city of New York saw
kilometre-long lines of people for free soup. There were no queues on
the city’s main streets though, but not because there were no hungry people
but because most of the cities did not have any money – they were just bankrupt.

So, I became curious about that and carried out some research that
brought about interesting results.
Seven and a half million people does not mean the number of particular
victims of the famine, but a general demographic loss, or the difference
between the supposed population on the date of the census that was due
to be held in 1940 and the factual number of people. In reality, the
total demographic loss is bigger. The fact is not contested by anyone.
The figure is more than ten million people.”

To the vast gulag of new concentration camps built for those American
citizens targeted by their government of ‘immediate’ arrest   we can
further read as reported by the San Francisco Chronicle News Service:
“Since 9/11, and seemingly without the notice of most Americans, the
federal government has assumed the authority to institute martial law,
arrest a wide swath of dissidents (citizen and noncitizen alike), and
detain people without legal or constitutional recourse in the event of
“an emergency influx of immigrants in the U.S., or to support the rapid
development of new programs.”
“Beginning in 1999, the government has entered into a series of
single-bid contracts with Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root
(KBR) to build detention camps at undisclosed locations within the
United States. The government has also contracted with several companies
to build thousands of railcars, some reportedly equipped with shackles,
ostensibly to transport detainees.
According to diplomat and author Peter Dale Scott, the KBR contract is
part of a Homeland Security plan titled ENDGAME, which sets as its goal
the removal of "all removable aliens" and "potential terrorists."

Fraud-busters such as Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Los Angeles, have complained
about these contracts, saying that more taxpayer dollars should not go
to taxpayer-gouging Halliburton.
 But the real question is: What kind of "new programs" require the construction and refurbishment of detention facilities in nearly every state of the union with the capacity to house perhaps millions of people?

Sect. 1042 of the 2007 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), "Use
of the Armed Forces in Major Public Emergencies," gives the executive
the power to invoke martial law. For the first time in more than a
century, the president is now authorized to use the military in response
to "a natural disaster, a disease outbreak, a terrorist attack or any
other condition in which the President determines that domestic violence
has occurred to the extent that state officials cannot maintain public order."

The Military Commissions Act of 2006, rammed through Congress just
before the 2006 midterm elections, allows for the indefinite
imprisonment of anyone who donates money to a charity that turns up on a
list of "terrorist" organizations, or who speaks out against the
government's policies. The law calls for secret trials for citizens and noncitizens alike.

Also in 2007, the White House quietly issued National Security
Presidential Directive 51 (NSPD-51), to ensure "continuity of
government" in the event of what the document vaguely calls a
"catastrophic emergency." Should the president determine that such an
emergency has occurred, he and he alone is empowered to do whatever he
deems necessary to ensure "continuity of government." This could include
everything from canceling elections to suspending the Constitution to
launching a nuclear attack. Congress has yet to hold a single hearing on NSPD-51.

U.S. Rep. Jane Harman, D-Venice (Los Angeles County) has come up with a
new way to expand the domestic "war on terror." Her Violent
Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 (HR1955),
which passed the House by the lopsided vote of 404-6, would set up a commission to "examine and report upon the facts and causes" of so-called violent radicalism and extremist ideology, then make legislative recommendations on combatting it.

According to commentary in the Baltimore Sun, Rep. Harman and her
colleagues from both sides of the aisle believe the country faces a native brand of terrorism, and needs a commission with sweeping investigative power to combat it.

A clue as to where Harman's commission might be aiming is the Animal
Enterprise Terrorism Act, a law that labels those who "engage in
sit-ins, civil disobedience, trespass, or any other crime in the name of
animal rights" as terrorists. Other groups in the crosshairs could be
anti-abortion protesters, anti-tax agitators, immigration activists,
environmentalists, peace demonstrators, Second Amendment rights
supporters ... the list goes on and on. According to author Naomi Wolf,
the National Counterterrorism Center holds the names of roughly 775,000
"terror suspects"
with the number increasing by 20,000 per month.”

Reports from the United States are also reporting that for the first
time since their Civil War, US Troops are being trained to take over
whole villages and towns to capture and arrest anyone they deem a
threat, and as we can read of one such US Military Unit in Iowa:
“The Carroll National Guard unit will train on urban military operations
by holding a four-day exercise at Arcadia. The purpose of the April 2-5
drill will be to gather intelligence, then search for and apprehend a suspected weapons dealer, according to Sgt. Mike Kots, readiness NCO for Alpha Company.
        Citizens, law enforcement, media and other supporters will participate.
Troops will spend Thursday, April 2, staging at a forward operations
base at Carroll. The next day company leaders will conduct reconnaissance and begin patrolling the streets of Arcadia to identify possible locations of the weapons dealer.

The primary phase will be done Saturday, April 4, when convoys will be
deployed from Carroll to Arcadia. Pictures of the arms dealer will be
shown in Arcadia, and soldiers will go door to door asking if residents
have seen the suspect.
Soldiers will knock only at households that have agreed to participate
in the drill, Kots noted.
“Once credible intelligence has been gathered," said Kots, "portions of
the town will be road-blocked and more in-depth searches of homes and
vehicles will be conducted in accordance with the residents' wishes.
     “One of the techniques we use in today's political environment is cordon
and knock," Kots explained. "We ask for the head of the household, get
permission to search, then have them open doors and cupboards. The
homeowner maintains control. We peer over their shoulder, and the
soldier uses the homeowner's body language and position to protect him."
     During this phase of the operation, troops will interact with residents
and media while implementing crowd-control measures and possibly
treating and evacuating injured persons. The unit will use a Blackhawk
helicopter for overhead command and control, and to simulate medevacs.
The drill will culminate in the apprehension of the suspected arms
The sheer Orwellian aspect of US Military Officials and US Propaganda
Media Organs using their own citizens to assist in the apprehension of
their family, friends and neighbors labeled as ‘enemies of the state’
are too chilling to comprehend, but become downright frightening
when coupled with the news that the US Government is now moving to cut off
access to all of their citizens to the ammunition they would need to
defend themselves against these fascist barbarians.
      Virtually unknown to the masses of gun owning Americans is that their
fears of having their government confiscate their guns was never the
greatest one to have, but to the taking away all of these peoples access
to the ammunition needed for their guns is what the ‘master plan’ for
subjugating them has always been,           and as we can read:
“It looks like those who said the Obama Administration would strike
while the iron is hot may have been correct, and the Administration may
be doing it in a way that does not require them to even get a vote in
In this morning's edition of the Shooting Wire, Jim Shepherd
writes that Canadian officials have it on "good authority" our State
Department may be on the verge of cutting off all imports of certain
calibers of ammunition.
Ammos listed for this rumored ban include the .50BMG, 7.62x39mm Soviet,
7.62x51mm NATO, .308 Winchester, 5.56 NATO and .223 Remington.
Additionally, we're hearing that an expansion of this proposed ban might be broadened to include the 6.8mm SPC, 9mm Parabellum, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP- among others.”

Most astounding of all of these events is that the vast majority of
Americans still look upon their new President Obama as being different
from their former President Bush, but as each day goes by the evidence
clearly shows he is nothing more than the figurehead put into place to
enact the final ENDGAME leading to the final destruction of the United States.
         From Bush’s War on Terror which he is continuing, to Bush’s tax cuts to
the wealthy elite he is continuing, to his backing of Bush’s torture
policies, to his attempts to kill the case against seeking to find the
millions of lost Bush emails, to his attempts to maintain Bush’s secrecy
on spying and torture of US citizens, and so much more,
 President Obama is marching in virtual lockstep with his predecessor virtually ignored
by the masses of Americans soon to be destroyed by what they refuse to see and defend themselves against.

To what is going to become of these once great American people we need
look no further than the words of the British champion of social justice
George Orwell, who in his prophetic work “1984” stated:
“The ideal set up by the Party was something huge, terrible, and
glittering—a world of steel and concrete, of monstrous machines and
terrifying weapons—a nation of warriors and fanatics, marching forward
in perfect unity, all thinking the same thoughts and shouting the same
slogans, perpetually working, fighting, triumphing, persecuting—three
hundred million people all with the same face.”

How terrifying it is for those Americans not having the ‘same face’ as
their mindless fellow citizens we know all too well      as we have seen them
before in the gulags of Nazi Germany and Communist Russia, the Killing
Fields of Cambodia and now soon to be….in the United States.

Simon Davies      23 Feb 2009
It may seem blindingly obvious, but I'm going to say it anyway as we often seem to forget, that clear communication is essential to mutual understanding. Without a common understanding of what we say to each other we find ourselves adrift in Babel-land. The risks to us all from a lack of common understanding cannot be overstated.

In the midst of the deluge of bailouts, rescues and stimulus packages there is no clear communication as to just why these measures are being taken and how they are meant to improve the lives of ordinary people. It is abundantly clear that this is deliberate.
If we, the normal people of the planet, were to gain a common understanding of what is really happening, we would decide that we don't approve, we would agree on exactly why we don't approve and we would likely agree on what we wish to see happen instead.
 Those that control our world know this so they ensure that no common understanding is reached; they need the confusion. In fact, they create the confusion.

They do this because should enough people truly understand the reality of what is happening on this planet a critical mass might be reached such that collectively we decide that we will no longer tolerate the world being the way it is
 and, more importantly, we would have a common direction to get out of the mess.

In order to ensure that we do not develop this common direction the controllers, or as Douglas Reed called them, the Managers, continuously ensure that we are in a state of confusion. The pre-requisite to achieving this confusion is that we be kept in a state of constant mutual fear wherein we see "others" as threatening to us
 whether to our property, our social status, our position at work, our position in our community, our economic position and even to our very survival ....
       For    most people in the so called "free" countries of the western world our fear is typically of each other and of foreigners, whether immigrant or "terrorist",
but this has been changing as we have become increasingly aware of the awesome power of the state as it manifests its brutality against our protests, as it whittles away our "freedoms" and commits our nations to criminal and immoral wars and theft.
 In order to amass greater power for itself the state has manipulated people's fears under the guise of the "war-on-terror", the "war-on-drugs", immigration and economic insecurity.          Overlaying the fear is a constant barrage of conflicting information, misinformation and disinformation constructed so as to ensure that no clear picture of reality can be discerned. In a nutshell, the state has used the technique of mass Transmarginal Inhibition to render the bulk of people passive, apathetic, submissive and confused.
People who are perpetually confused are impotent and incapable of coherent collective action. The tactic has always been to divide and conquer.

There is a struggle taking place which will determine the future of this planet and the people on it. Arrayed against normal people     is a pathological system dominated by psychopaths of all races, creeds and colours. These psychopaths have no purpose that normal people can properly comprehend, for their purpose is power; power for its own sake. They seek no strategic political or economic goal, there is no specific land they covet or a level of wealth which they seek, for there is not enough land nor enough wealth to satisfy them.  ...........
Neither is there a limit to the suffering they will cause for they seem to revel in bloodbaths, in torture and starvation. They seek infinite control, no bargain nor parlay can assuage them, there is no treaty that can halt their rapacious advance nor law that can limit them.
All the institutions of our world, our governments, corporations and religions reflect the pathology of the psychopath. We have grown up and bring our children up in a world dominated by this pathology and these beings.
Yet the psychopath has a fundamental weakness, like any stalking predator in the wild that depends on concealment to eat: they have an overwhelming fear of exposure. It is this innate fear of exposure that dominates much of what they do and explains the immense fear and confusion that we are kept in. The fear and confusion of the world is the deliberate ploy of the psychopaths to avoid discovery.

We cannot fight the psychopaths and the diseased system they have created with weapons of war for they control the greatest war machines the world has ever known; we cannot succeed by any means other than through a simple and all powerful revolution, a revolution of truth. For truth reveals the lie and the psychopath withers in the light of truth.
The truth, as famously stated by St Paul, will also set us free. It will set us free from fear and confusion, because the truth has no political, religious or any other affiliation, it stands on it own. But finding the truth is no easy task, for it remains hidden behind veil after veil. Our task therefore is to strip away every veil without pity; especially without pity for ourselves and the warm fuzzy religious and philosophical lies we have used as wool over our eyes. .............
Money and the economy are mere tools for the attaining of power so that everything we observe in the field of economics and money is simply part of the perpetual garnering of power. Yet we have to understand that the system, the Matrix, is not something that we will one day suddenly find and be able to point to and say "see, there it is", for it surrounds us; all we see are at best mere reflections of what is happening at levels which we cannot penetrate.
With this in mind, let us return to the matter of confusion. It seems to us that the immense confusion surrounding the economic crisis is a key to perceiving the Matrix. It seems to us that those that run the world, the Managers, are relying on this confusion to ensure that we take a particular path which is to their advantage. We think that the path they are sending us down is one of near total economic collapse resulting in the breakdown of the existing social order and the imposition of overt military dictatorship. That is the obvious end result of what they are doing and thus is their intent.  ....
It is obvious that in the US and the UK those that control the military, police and intelligence apparatus are seeking widespread conflict. They are simply preparing the popular mind for the violence that they themselves plan to unleash upon us. This violence will be used to justify dictatorship, civil repression, mass arrests and incarceration without trial. ....
Soon we will have 'labour direction' as the economy crumbles in ruins and labouring for the state or via the state for the global corporations will become a necessity in the face of starvation. In due course, with the breakdown in global trade and social structure there will no doubt be 'bread rationing' of some sort. Whether it will truly be rationing or rather the simple expedient of starvation of those that do not bow down before the might of the US and Israeli empire.  ....
The Managers have engineered this crisis, its form, scope and magnitude such that there is nothing that our governments could do, within the constraints imposed upon them, even if they had the vision and understanding to comprehend the trap we are all in.

The banking crisis has been expertly engineered through the transformation of banking into a high risk greed driven casino supported by the manipulated absence of regulation and excess of money supply. The nature of the banking system is such that it would inevitably lead to the debt driven asset price bubble that has made prisoners of debt out of millions and slaves out of billions. Years of banking merger upon banking merger resulted in a small number of banks coming to dominate the globe with the inevitable result that the very existence of the entire system now rests upon their shoulders.
Yet these banks were deliberately allowed to be run in a cavalier and immoral fashion with precious little proper oversight.
 Similarly, the world has become dominated by a small number of global corporations that control our access to energy, food, and the other essentials, and non-essentials, of life. Our political systems have become hostage to the interests of these banking and corporate empires, our governments so dominated by them that the US government has been referred to as "Government Sachs", a reference to the number of positions in the US government held by Goldman Sachs people.

Our national governments are now simply puppets of the banks and corporations that dominate the globe who are in turn the puppets of the hidden Managers, their rule imposed through military might and the police state.

This was all a trap, designed to lead to exactly this situation from which there is no apparent escape.
Our political leaders, our civil servants, our leading bankers and corporate managers are all the products of a system that has provided them with a framework of reality which is false, limited and engineered such that the psychopathic rise to the top and the non-psychopathic become so hopelessly infected that they might as well be psychopathic.          Their beliefs about the world are so diseased that they justify to themselves the rape and destruction of entire peoples and nations and will justify to themselves the repression and destruction of their own people. Yet it is to these people that we are told we must defer in leading us out of the mess that they have created. .......
They establish environments in which psychopaths will flourish and in which the weaknesses of normal people such as greed and avarice will become dominant. The free market capitalist system is just such an environment; an environment easily manipulated by the Managers to create whatever result they wish. ...
Each piece on the chessboard is there for a reason. The political leaders have been chosen for their traits whether it is Obama's apparent charisma in contrast to Bush, Brown's surliness or Sarkozy's limitless arrogance. The banks have been set up to fail and then seek public money to the inevitable disgust and anger of the masses. The war machines have been battle hardened, the military and police personnel conditioned in the "war-on-terror, there's a terrorist in every person" mentality, the people bred fearful and confused.
The mass of people have been reduced to an ignorant and confused rabble, easily directed, manipulated into violence or submission exactly as they Managers wish. At no time can the Managers be identified for they are never on the chessboard.
For many the idea that our entire world is a giant chessboard is too much.
These people fall back on the illusions of the Matrix always seeking a more comfortable, a more reassuring explanation. ....
We are being driven towards economic apocalypse, societal collapse and totalitarian dictatorship; it is as simple as that.
 Denial makes victims, facing reality makes the people of the future.
..and the comment..
"In A Nutshell . . . " // comment     By: shellycheval
Thank you Simon for providing a simple, direct and clear message on the nature of our reality. One that is not easy to accept, but necessary to understand--it is a good example of "tough love."
-IAEA-douses-furor-over-Iran-report :
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is increasingly appearing like a dysfunctional fire station - it's become an agency designed to put out fires triggered by the heat of nuclear proliferation, and yet can't help but ignite a few flare-ups along the way.
        The     recent handling of Iran's nuclear issue has been such a brushfire for the United Nations' watchdog. The latest report by director general Mohammad ElBaradei has instigated a media furor over the disclosure that the IAEA had previously underestimated the volume of enriched uranium at Iran's nuclear facilities by some 30%.
Iran is in the mood for compromise. This stance is reflected in the IAEA report that Iran has de-accelerated its enrichment-related activities as a gesture to the Obama administration. This important information should have had the upper spot in the Western media's stories on the IAEA report. Yet only the Washington Post saw fit to highlight this angle in the headline of one of its news articles on Iran.
Hopefully, after learning of the IAEA's important clarification - which in essence exonerates Iran of any nuclear foul play - the rest of the Western media will follow suit.
Comment: Unfortunately, this is unlikely to happen. Those that pull the strings in Washington and Tel Aviv have been working very hard on vilifying Iran in order to deem acceptable their nefarious plans, spreading lies and propaganda for years now.
And the mainstream media are faithfully reporting what they are told, without investigation or even using - the so uncommon today - common sense. Just read SOTT's special reports to get the picture:

...(...)...But it's now inflamed by declining imperial power, genuine economic crises, an exotic Other occupying the White House, and potent technology harnessed by right-wing corporations such as Fox News to broadcast and disseminate it widely and continuously. At the very least, it's worth taking note of. And I wonder what would happen if MSNBC broadcast a similar discussion of leftists plotting and planning the imminent, violent Socialist Revolution against the U.S. Government.

UPDATE: Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs and "Pajamas Media":
Glenn Beck: The End is Nigh . . . .
Is it irresponsible for Fox News to be airing this over the top, creepy alarmist stuff during a financial crisis? Well, yeah, I think so.
 If someone like that -- like this -- thinks that Fox News is being irresponsibly, even dangerously, inflammatory, then that's a pretty compelling sign of how far over the line they actually are.
Comment: This is nothing short of the 'religious arm' of the 'Shock Doctrine' as described by Naomi Klein, in which a population is railroaded with invasive cultural and/or economic measures of control and dispossession, especially designed to fatally undermine the indigenous social structure, during times of widespread national trauma when a nation is unprepared to defend itself.
Stephen Lendman    20 Feb 2009
Observers are following the rhetoric and watching as events unfold. In the meantime, jockeying and deal-making continue as Netanyahu and Livni try outmaneuvering each other to form a new government. Whoever wins, Palestinians, Israelis, and most others will be losers.
On February 19, AP reported that Lieberman endorsed Netanyahu, "all but guaranteeing that (he'll) be the country's next leader." Haaretz went further saying that "65 MKs announced (for) Netanyahu (so) it appears that his path to the premiership is (now) paved." Livni called it "the foundation....for an extreme right-wing government." Lieberman wants Kadima in it. Likud said it would try to forge a broad coalition, and Peres may shortly announce Netanyahu will lead it.

As traditional Jews observe the political maneuvers of Israel's purported "religious" right-wing parties in recent elections, there is growing concern that these groups are gravely misleading the international community in its perception of Judaism and the Torah. Claiming to represent Judaism, these "religious" parties manipulate the Torah's values to suit their own political goals, giving the uninformed individual the impression that the Torah is politically extreme and against peace.

The uncontestable truth is that the Torah strongly advocates for peace. The Torah absolutely forbids Jews from waging war against non-Jews; in fact, Jews were avowed by God not to revolt against any nation or people. The Jewish set of laws commands that Jews be law-abiding citizens in whichever country they choose to take up residence. And for close to two thousand years - ever since the destruction of the holy Temple in Jerusalem - this has been a basic principle for all observant Jews. ...
In blatant contrast, Zionist ideology is directly opposed to the Torah. Zionism was deviously designed by its founders to replace the Torah and its holy, God-given commandments with nationalistic, power-driven ideals that are devoid of holiness, godliness, or spirituality. Zionism and the Israeli state have consistently endeavored, via persuasion and coercion, to replace the Divine and Torah-inspired understanding of our people with one of armed materialism.

At the time of its founding by Theodor Herzl, Zionism was rejected by every God-fearing Jew. Respected Jewish authorities everywhere consistently warned their constituents against associating with the Zionist movement in any manner.

It was clear to every observant Jew that the Zionist movement was deviant sect designed to steer Jews away from the Torah, no different from the other heretical sects that existed for brief periods of time throughout Jewish history.

Tragically, with the passing of time, the Zionist movement succeeded in ensnaring certain religious rabbis into their trap. Perhaps these individuals were shortsighted and did not comprehend the true motives of the Zionist founders, or maybe they were motivated by the perceived rewards of ultimate power, wealth, or fame. In any event, as they spiraled downward into and under the Zionist quicksand, a brand-new and strange concept was formed: the "Nationalistic Religious Movement." These rabbis - better yet, these politicians- convinced the uninformed Jewish masses to support and join this new-fangled movement. "To combine the greatest of contradictions - the Jewish faith and the holy Torah with nationalistic ideals that are devoid of holiness and designed to replace the Torah - is the epitome of hypocrisy and confusion. Imagine if a Jew would make sure that his pork [forbidden meat] was slaughtered, and koshered - this is Religious Nationalism," said Rabbi Hersh Lowenthal.
These politicians are exploiting the Torah for the sake of nationalism. For example, they continually misinterpret Biblical verses to "prove" that the Torah forbids the relinquishing of territory. How deceitful to use verses that apply to the times of the holy Temple to our current age, when Jews are in exile by decree of God, and are in fact avowed by God not to create a Jewish government with a Jewish identity prior to the Divine Redemption. How devious - in particular - to apply Biblical verses to a secular country whose leaders are non-believers and outspoken enemies of the true Jewish faith.
..(...) . If you wish to follow God and His holy Torah, then follow Him! And if your goal is to pursue hollow, secular, nationalistic values - pursue them. Don't attempt to combine these inherently contradicting ideals and, as a result, confuse the public with blatant lies and falsities.
True Torah Jews (a.k.a. Natruna) is investing tremendous effort to expose the falsehoods of this new movement to the Jewish community at large. With God's help, the results are positive and reassuring as the truth is welcomed by Jews all over the world. In a massive explanatory campaign in Israel, we implored the public not to heed the politicians' campaigns; instead, we asked voters to boycott the elections and thereby demonstrate their staunch separation from any form of Zionism. .... the final tallies showed that the national religious parties had in fact lost several seats.
Obviously, the religious community is now more open-minded as more and more individuals begin to perceive the insincerity of the politicians: this is "politics as usual" and has absolutely no association with either the Torah or Judaism.
The hope is that before long every single Torah-observant Jew will abandon this movement and the entire world will clearly understand that:
The government of the State of Israel is not associated with either Jews or Judaism.     It     is    a Zionist state, not a Jewish State.  
In conclusion, True Torah Jews would like to make it perfectly clear that the "religious parties" that participate in the government of the State of Israel do not represent traditional Torah-based Judaism. The true Torah position can be heard and accepted only from honest rabbinical authorities who are bound only to the Torah and harbor absolutely no ulterior motives. Every single such authority is completely opposed to the concept of Zionism in any form or shade, from the moment it was conceived until the present date.
We hope this clarifies the difference between Torah based Judaism and the nationalistic so-called Judaism. We pray that Jews everywhere will come to understand that ultimate salvation does not originate from the acts of humans, and will trust in the Divine Redemption which will bring peace for the entire world. May we merit that great day soon, Amen.

ABOUT TRUE TORAH JEWS True Torah Jews is dedicated to informing the world and, in particular, the American public and politicians that not all Jews support the ideology of the Zionist state called "Israel" which is diametrically opposite to the teachings of traditional Judaism. We are concerned that the widespread misconception that all Jews support the Zionist state and its actions is endangering Jews worldwide.

Defending Henry By Arthur Topham

Arthur Topham    Posted Feb. 21, 2009       (September 28, 2008)

In a recent article of Dr. Henry Makow’s, Jewish Lobby Has Candidate Removed in Mid Campaign Henry dropped a line into the story indicating that he is also the subject of an investigation by Canada’s notorious “Human Rights” Tribunals; one precipitated by the continuous machinations of the Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC), an organization deeply embedded in Canada’s various levels of government.
Henry Makow is a Jewish Canadian writer who I first encountered back in the early days of publishing The Radical circa 1998-99. His numerous articles on and carried elsewhere on such sites as are a cumulative, documentary record of the various secret societies that have permeated Western civilization from at least the time of the Christ.
Esoteric societies such as the Cabalists, the Knights Templars, the Rothschild dynasty, the Illuminati of Adam Weishupt, the continental Freemasons of Europe and eventually the exoteric body now recognized as the political Zionists all are represented by Dr. Makow as proof that
 a small, yet inordinately powerful and secret cartel of conspiring souls has been deliberately controlling global political and economic outcomes via subterfuge, deceit and endless bloodshed and destruction; its mainspring for motion gained through an elusive and exclusive license to manufacture wealth out of the ethers only to then be sold to the ignorant as the Fractional Reserve banking system.
As Dr. Makow rightly surmised the core grouping consists of mainly Ashkenazic (non-Semitic) Jews who comprise the body of the Rothschild banking system which, in turn, dominates and controls what is euphemistically understood by most television and mainstream media readers to mean the U.S. Federal Reserve system. This is the same iniquitous body that has suddenly gained unwanted (but not unwarranted) public prominence and criticism due to its machinations with respect to the financial crisis in the USA.
God willing (and the anticipate false flag war with Iran doesn’t rise like the proverbial creek) the people in the US and Canada and elsewhere will soon realize that this supposed government bank is actually a fraudulent entity owned lock, stock and barrel by the Rothschild syndicate
and has been a private venture since its clandestine creation on Jekyll Island back in 1910 and its eventual manifestation in 1913.
These are but some of the obvious reasons why Dr. Henry Makow is also now facing the censorship inquisitors at the Canadian Human Rights Commission. His case, not unlike that of mine (Harry Abrams and B’nai Brith Canada vs and others,
 will iikely involve more of same attacks upon his character, his reputation and likely his profession as a university professor
by the very same Zionist organizations that are hell-driven to keep the lid on this boiling cauldron of putrescence that has plagued mankind throughout the 20th Century and is building to a climax as we presently view, write and read about it.
              I don’t know how many times I’ve written and spoken these words but they will always bear repeating until the majority of Canadians realize that organizations such as B’nai Brith Canada (BBC), the Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC) and the Simon Weisenthal Center (SWC) are all FALSE FRONTS set up by the Zionists in order to control Canadian content and thought, be it in newspapers, public venues, institutions, on radio or television and now, (and most importantly) on the internet.
 They are the watchdogs; the Rotweiilers and Pitbulls of the Zionist propaganda matrix whose job is to seek out and silence by all means any person, group or media organization that might expose those responsible for the endless woes and misery that now plague humankind as a result of their actual deeds.
          Dr. Makow’s case may be precedent-setting in some respects for he will likely be the first Jew in Canada to undergo this Zionist/Bolshevik process of defamation, ridicule, slander, libel and calumny by these professed Jewish lobbyists, all in the name of covering up the culprits and the truths that Makow has exposed. (I cannot, for obvious reasons, include the Jew Ezra Levant in this scenario. First because he got off the “Human Rights” hook and second he was not being critical of Zionism nor was he complained of by these agent provocateurs. If fact he is a self-confessed Zionist).
      But Henry is a horse of another colour. He will be vilified as a “self-hating Jew”; Bernie Farber, CEO of the Canadian Jewish Congress will delight in sending him to the gulag via Canada’s Human Rights Tribunal as a token sacrifice no less than did the Zionists of the Nazi era who sold out countless of their Jewish brethren to the Third Reich’s work camps in order to justify their later theft of Palestinian lands for the establishment of a beachhead (Homeland) in their relentless quest for global hegemony.
          As Henry points out in his article below former Liberal candidate Leslie Hughes is the latest victim of these jackals of repression. She wasn’t the first. In B.C. a former Green Party candidate John Shavluk was removed by Green leader Ms. May for the same ostensible reason.
Next in line of course is another NDP candidate also in B.C. and running in the very riding where I reside. Her name is Bev Collins and she is making her grand appearance on the Fourth Estate’s media stage as the Zionist-run blogs (fueled by a network of zio-cyber slueths hiding behind their so-called “Christian” and “conservative” masks) and Zionist-run press begin their relentless attacks in a desperate attempt to preserve the Zionist Harper government and its mandate of           unequivocal support for the state of Israel.
          As I pointed out in my Sept. 3, 2005 article B’nai Brith: Beating the anti-Semitic Drum one of these groups, the B’nai Brith, via their propaganda tool, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) founded, not uncoincidentally in the year 1913 (see Fed Reserve above), had by the end of WW2 grown into a massive pro-Zionist organization with a budget of millions.
As the Minorah Journal, a Jewish publication, stated in 1948,  “Fighting anti-semitism has been built up into a big business, with annual budgets running into millions of dollars”. Its object was “to continue beating the anti-semitic drum” in order to raise funds for the B’nai Brith and through its watchdog the ADL control all public debate on Zionism. This process has obviously not abated over the past sixty years and remains a clear and present danger.
Finally, another “self-hating Jew”, the renowned author and critic Noam Chomsky, Professor of Linguistics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, once correctly described the B’nai Brith’s ADL in these words as: “…one of the ugliest, most powerful pressure groups in the U.S…Its primary commitment is to use any technique, however dishonest and disgraceful, in order to defame and silence and destroy anybody who dares to criticize the Holy State (’Israel’).”
                Go figure. All in all it makes for an unusually savory federal election stew with most of the essential ingredients of the Zionist recipe for world government – unnecessary wars, censorship, blackmail, phony platforms based on hypocrisy and greed, financial fickleness and fraudulent foreign policies designed to destroy a once strong, virile nation.           Not being prone to prognosis I would, nonetheless, still venture at this point to state that we will likely see more candidates exposed as anti-Semites and anti-Zionists and, good grief Charlie Brown! even anti-American, before this ludicrous election finally culminates.
Dr. Makow is going to need support, both moral and otherwise in his stand against the Zionist New World Order gang. He deserves it.
 He’s been in the trenches with the rest of us.v
Head-In-The-Tar-Sands Politics
Feb. 23, 2009 You can't mitigate global climate disruption and support tar sand production at the same time.  'Clean coal' is an oxymoron, and 'Carbon capture & storage (CCS)' is a technology which does not yet exist, and is unlikely to make a significant difference any time soon, if ever.  Apparently, this does not prevent the Obama administration from promoting both of them. So far, Obama's rhetoric on Canada's tar sands is as empty as BP's 'Beyond Petroleum' ad campaign, on which it spent millions of dollars while investing $3 billion in Alberta's 'ironically named Sunrise field,' to take part in 'the biggest global warming crime ever seen,' according to MikeHudema, the climate and energy campaigner for Greenpeace in Canada. » read more

What is it going to take to reverse this trend toward the complete disregard for the living? How many civilians are going to die in the worsening poverty and desperation before a bottom up stimulus package is enacted that will help those that need it most. The people without jobs, beds, food or hope.

Any homeless person can tell you exactly what they need to survive and thrive in their communities: a secure room with a bed, storage and access to a washroom, health care, phone, food. It's not asking for much. How many million homes are sitting empty?

People are our most precious asset, though you would never know it by listening to the immigration debate, the size of the prison population or the state of the education system. There are voices of reason and hope out there, like Ron Paul for example.

The one silver lining to this economic fiasco is that when enough middle class voters join the ranks of the poor (and stop paying taxes) we might actually achieve political change. The days of pay-for-play politics are numbered, as are the days of the middle class. Now on with those war crimes tribunals.

Obama: Political Messiah, or Just Another Third World Dictator?
February 23, 2009 7:42 PM
Feb. 23, 2009 Yes, it's great to have a black face in the White House. And yes, it's nice to have a bright, well-educated, eloquent president for a change. But national leaders who are dark-skinned, bright, well-educated, and eloquent are a dime a dozen. The Third World is full of them. » read more
But race is an illusion; skin color means no more than eye color. The delusion that pigmentation has social meaning is cultivated by the elite as a divide-and-conquer weapon against the people.
The real third-worldization of America is not racial, but economic and political. The global banking elite is destroying our economy with a prefabricated "crisis," just as it has destroyed so many Third World economies with similar crises--for details, read Naomi Klein's The Shock Doctrine. The purpose of the economic 9/11 and its aftermath is to destroy the middle class, reduce the vast majority of the population to impoverishment and debt slavery, and establish a world dictatorship of the financier elite and its intellectual and technological hired guns. As Brzezinski's boss David Rockefeller put it, "The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries."
Rather than nationalizing the banks, imprisoning the thieves who run them, and rebooting a middle-class economy via monetary reform and an industrial policy, Obama is aiding and abetting the trillionaire global finance elite as they loot what's left of America and drive our economy into the ground.
As the third-worldization of America continues, and formerly middle-class people continue to be booted out of their jobs and homes, don't bet on Obama maintaining his leftie, peacenik, pro-civil-liberties facade. When people starve and protests grow, Obama's bankster puppeteers will try to distract us by escalating the wars against Afghanistan and Pakistan, and maybe throw in Iran, Russia, or China for good measure. If that doesn't work, they will convince Obama to use the dictatorial presidential powers that Bush and Cheney grabbed after the 9/11 inside job. The day may not be far off when we look back on the Cheney regime as the good old days when people could pay their mortgages and buy food, and only Muslims were being disappeared, tortured, and warehoused in concentration camps.
I hope I'm wrong. But one thing I'm sure of is that only fools mistake politicians for messiahs. Within a few years, it's a good bet that Obama will be looking a lot less like a messiah, and a lot more like just another third world dictator.

Author's Bio: Dr. Kevin Barrett, coordinator of the Muslim-Christian-Jewish Alliance for 9/11 Truth, has taught English, French, Arabic, American Civilization, Humanities, African Literature, Folklore, and Islam at colleges and universities in the San Francisco Bay area, Paris, and Madison, Wisconsin. He grew up in a family of lapsed Unitarians (which is about as lapsed as it gets) and reverted to Islam in 1993, a move that gradually impressed upon him the gravity of the moral choices we make in this life. Barrett’s dissertation is on Islam and Moroccan legend.
 He is also the author and illustrator of the cult classic A Guide to Mysterious San Francisco, published under the pseudonym of “Dr. Weirde.” (He begs Allah’s forgiveness for that slightly twisted book.) Barrett became a 9/11 truth activist in 2004 after reading David Griffin’s The New Pearl Harbor and conducting follow-up research that convinced him Griffin had accurately summarized evidence indicating 9/11 was an inside job.
            In the summer of 2004 he founded 9/11 Truth Squad, a local group based in Madison, Wisconsin. In July, he rashly rejected a plum post-doc at the University of California because it was funded by the 9/11-disinformation-sponsoring CIA-linked Ford Foundation. In the summer of 2006, Republican state legislators and Fox newscasters demanded that Barrett be fired from his job teaching an introductory Islam class at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, but the University refused to buckle, and Barrett got high marks from his students. Barrett has led several 9/11 Truth Teach-Ins at the University of Wisconsin, including 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Truth Marathon on the third and fourth anniversaries of the attacks.
 He has appeared in several documentary films, lectures widely on 9/11 and hosts three radio programs on three different patriot networks:
America's Most Desperate: Why 35.5 Million People Are Going Hungry
Feb. 23, 2009 Sherry Byrum, 48, works full time at a day care centre in Spokane Valley, Washington, earning about $9 an hour. She and her husband, who is unable to work because of heart surgery, live in a 30-year old mobile home. They get groceries at a local food bank, but there have been occasions when the couple have gone several days without eating. “We’ve got to pay our bills,” Byrum says. » read more     (...)

During the Depression around 2.5 million people lost their homes and were thrown onto the streets. Today, foreclosures are again forcing people out of their homes. Americans aren’t that desperate yet, but things could worsen. Since the figures were disclosed, millions more have lost their jobs and homes, so the number of the hungry and starving is likely to be higher. The latest figures do not include the estimated 750,000 Americans who are homeless on any given day. Also not counted are people living on the fringes of American society—in Miami, for instance, criminals live under highway bridges with the state’s grudging approval because new laws make it nearly impossible for them to find housing.

What’s scarier is that as food prices spiral out of control, Americans are not just competing with each other for food and resources. In the midst of an economic downturn, keeping in step with a billion Indians and a billion Chinese in the global marketplace is going to be an extremely tall order.

It's why financial expert and consumer advocate Catherine Austin Fitts recommends:
-- "Vote with your feet;"
-- take your money out of "big money-center, tapeworm banks and financial institutions and put it in local credit unions, thrift institutions, savings banks and state chartered banks;"
-- control your own retirement savings in troubled times, and above all:
-- "Bail out of Wall Street" and "nationalize" the Fed. In other words, drop the fiction that it's a government agency. Expose its status as a private for-profit cartel, abolish it, and obey the Constitution's Article I, Section 8 that gives Congress alone the right to coin (create) money and regulate its value.
A Final Comment
Today's crisis should bury the myth about "free-market" fundamentalism as the best of all possible worlds. History proves otherwise by clearly showing that it fails the many to advantage the few because it's arranged that way:
-- nearly everywhere earlier and now.
In 19th century America:
-- through indigenous slaughter, slavery, financial panics, child labor, sexism, racism, and worker exploitation;
In 20th century America:
-- much the same in most respects;
-- the 1930s depression;
-- repeated recessions, inflation, deflation, instability, unemployment, under-employment, and the erosion of job security, high wages, good benefits, and reliable pensions;
-- wealth and want extremes;
-- a plutocracy masquerading as democracy; according to Gore Vidal, most people never question "the inequality of a system (under which they) drudge along, pay heavy taxes (and) get nothing (back) in return;"
-- government of, by, and for the privileged;
-- elections reduced to theater in a de facto one-party state;
-- a corporate state placing profits over people;
-- essential needs left unmet; and
-- imperialism, militarism, foreign wars, homeland repression, government and business corruption, a broken media, a prison-industrial gulag, wage slavery, social decay, growing poverty, inequality, injustice, and racism under a system where the business of America is business; where never have so many lost out to the few; where capital is empowered to get more of it; where it's sucked from the public to the privileged; and where government is indifferent to human needs, rights and civil liberties.
Enough is enough. Bury the monster, its crimes, its inhumanity. End its poison and bandit ideology for egalitarian freedom and equal justice. Marshal collective defiance for real change. It's high time we got some.

The Harper Government's abandonment of one of its own citizens in crass obeisance to what it perceives as America's wishes is a craven betrayal of Canadian values. To have looked the other way while America tortured, to have given up what was a mere boy to the institutional terror, cruelty and sadism rampant in places like Bagram and Guantanamo is to dishonor Canada, the United Nations and the civilized rule of law. Perhaps Mr. Harper needs to be reminded that Mr. Bush is gone, now, and the eight-year nightmare is over, if not the aftermath. He needs to unpucker--George's sorry backside won't be back. And perhaps George W. Bush is not the only one who should fear the harsh judgment of history. Stop the insanity. Bring Omar Khadr home.

Why is Obama Expanding the War in Afghanistan?
Feb. 23, 2009 On February 15, 1989, General Boris Gromov led his 40th Soviet Army out of Afghanistan, marking the end of Moscow’s bloody and disastrous occupation. In the process, some 1.5mn Afghans died at the hands of the Red Army and Afghan Communists. The new Soviet chairman, Mikhail Gorbachev, determined the Afghan war, begun by his dim predecessor, Leonid Brezhnev, and a cabal of party and KGB hardliners, could not be won. » read more    (....)
Meanwhile, high expectations for Obama are fading. To the anguish of America’s anti-war movement, his administration seems set on continuing many of the illegal, repressive policies of the disgraced Bush White House that it had vowed to end: torture, kidnapping, wiretapping, assassinations, Constitutional infringements, denial of due process.
What happened to the Obama who was supposed to bring change? Leftover hardliners from the Bush days appear to be driving Obama’s foreign policy in the Middle East and Afghanistan. The Pentagon warns that a defeat of Nato in Afghanistan will destroy the alliance – the foundation of US hegemony over Europe. After Iraq, another defeat cannot be tolerated.
Soviet veterans of Afghanistan warn the US and its allies face defeat there. The Obama White House cannot even articulate a coherent political strategy for Afghanistan. Its latest big idea is to kick out the hapless Hamid Karzai and install a new “asset”.

Washington hopes US troop reinforcements will finally bludgeon the Afghan national resistance into accepting American domination. Then the long-planned pipeline from the Caspian Basin across Afghanistan to Pakistan can finally be built.

Don’t count on it anytime soon.

Global Recession: Over 100,000 Demonstrate in Ireland
February 23, 2009 4:15 PM
Huge protest over Irish economy Feb. 23, 2009 About 100,000 people have taken part in protests in Dublin city centre to vent their anger at the Irish government’s handling of the country’s recession. Protesters said they wanted to make their voices heard but avoid strike action They oppose plans to impose a pension levy on 350,000 public sector workers. Trade union organisers of the march said workers did not cause the economic crisis but were having to pay for it. In a statement, the Irish government said it recognised that the measures it was taking were “difficult and in some cases painful”. » read more (...)

Ireland, which was once one of Europe’s fastest-growing economies, has fallen into recession faster than many other members of the European Union.

The country officially fell into recession in September 2008, and unemployment has risen sharply in the following months.

The numbers of people claiming unemployment benefit in the Irish Republic rose to 326,000 in January, the highest monthly level since records began in 1967.

Fast Food Nations Eating Themselves To Death
February 23, 2009 4:13 PM
McDonald’s and KFC are taking advantage of the recession. It’s depressing how slowly the government is responding Feb. 23, 2009 Every economic cloud has a silver lining apparently, though not perhaps if you’re a chicken. Last week, KFC, which dumps more intensively reared birds in the deep-fat fryer than almost anybody else, announced it was responding to vastly increased demand by creating 9,000 new jobs in this country and opening up to 300 new outlets. Money might be too tight to mention, but not if you want to fill up on a killer combination of cheap protein, even cheaper carbs and tongue-coating fats. » read more   (..)
But it goes further than that. A couple of years ago, McDonald’s really did look like it was on the skids. Sales were down and outlets were being closed down. With immense skill, it proved why it has been so successful for so long by swiftly appearing to address consumer concerns.
In came fair trade coffee. In came organic milk and a local sourcing policy for its beef. McDonald’s did just enough to spike the guns of its critics, smothering dispute in the media, which in turn brought back the punters.
Nevertheless, the fact remains that McDonald’s is still a joint that makes its cash from hamburgers and fries which, eaten too often, are a nutritional disaster. Poor nutrition leads in turn to obesity and that is obviously a Very Bad Thing. But, as Sir Michael Marmot of the World Health Organisation explains in today’s Observer, it is now clear that obesity is also a huge determinant for cancer. Quite simply, the stakes could not be higher.
Are there any grounds for optimism? As it happens, there are. As part of the government’s anti-obesity Change4Life campaign, a group of local food retailers in the north east has been given grants to help it improve the display and storage of fresh produce and has been encouraged to link up with local cookery clubs, so consumers know what to do with the stuff once they’ve bought it.
It’s not prescriptive, it’s practical. The result, two months into the pilot project? According to the shops’ owners, there’s been a significant lift in fresh fruit and vegetable sales. Will it make the chief executives of KFC and Subway tremble in their well-filled boots? Perhaps not. But in the battle for our cholesterol-drenched hearts - and minds - it’s a start.

The Great Game Revisited
February 23, 2009 4:08 PM
An article in THE NEWS by a British author “Charles Ferndale” exposed the Great Game of Israel. He condemns West for not pursuing an effective policy of reducing the number of nuclear weapons. West should disarm India and provide military protection guarantee to Pakistan against Indian attack taking away the reason for Pakistan’s nuclear weapons. He states that primarily NATO is in Afghanistan because of the gas reserves around the Caspian Sea, which NATO countries would like to deny to Russia and China and secondly to destabilize and weaken Pakistan on behalf of Israel. - Brass Tacks The Israeli army � which, despite Israel’s veneer of democracy, actually runs that country — has for some decades now pursued certain policies of direct relevance to Muslim countries in its vicinity. » read more.........(...)
Frankly, so bizarre a scheme is too stupid even for Indian and American intelligence officials stationed far from the action. But, if not, then its drift is obvious: the Pakistani military command should be fragmented, disabled, sidelined and the country’s nuclear ‘arsenal’ should come under responsible control (like that of the Afghans, I suppose). Pakistan should be deprived of central military national command.
Events in Waziristan, in the Khyber Agency and in Swat all suggest that the central authorities of Pakistan have indeed relinquished control of these border areas. Balochistan is also in a state of turmoil that makes it impossible for the central authority of the Pakistan government and army to govern there. Much of this is the result of sixty years of gross incompetence and nepotism in the central government and in the army, but it has created an environment easily exploited by Pakistan’s enemies. The Baloch tribes on the Iran side of the border are also being financed by outside agencies, so their insurgency will weaken the central control of the Iranian government. In short, Israel’s foreign policy in the region, has, with the aid of the US, become a very successful one. The only thing I fail to understand is why the people of these countries let it happen. Especially the militants: they are supposed to be true Muslims, yet they really seem to relish doing their enemies’ dirty work. I suppose when you are very poor, money can buy just about anything. And when you are ignorant you are easily fooled.

The Lawyer Charade: Forget Principles, It’s Another Dirty Trick
February 23, 2009 3:47 PM
Nawaz Sharif’s reason for supporting Iftikhar Chaudhry one year ago was to get back at Musharraf, a glorified version of kindergarten revenge. Nothing more. Today, Mr. Sharif’s purpose is to grab the federal government. He believes his right to rule Pakistan was snatched away from him in 1999 and he wants it back. » read more    (....)

Second, when Iftikhar Chaudhry was released from his house arrest a year ago, the first thing he did was to drive to the Islamabad residence of Mr. Zardari and get his blessing. Why didn’t Mr. Chaudhry Iftikhar drive to see Mr. Nawaz Sharif, for example? He did it on Mr. Ahsan’s advice, and the good and noble Mr. Ahsan thought he’d be doing a favor for Mr. Zardari by allowing his party to take the entire credit for the lawyers’ movement. When Zardari snubbed them for whatever reason, Mr. Ahsan and Chaudhry Iftikhar decided to approach Mr. Sharif.

The point is this:

  1. Both PPPP and PML-N first used the lawyers’ movement to take revenge from the former ruler, Pervez Musharraf.
  2. When PPPP got the federal government and PML-N the Punjab government and ministries in Islamabad, both parties distanced themselves from Chaudhry Iftikhar.
  3. Now when PML-N wants to target PPPP, Mr. Sharif has suddenly rediscovered that Chaudhry Iftikhar has a good cause that needs backing.

Aitzaz Ahsan is a smart guy. He knows that party ‘owners’, late Benazir Bhutto and now Asif Zardari, only care about themselves. BB had no problem that her self-imposed exile destroyed the political careers of PPP members. She was content staying abroad for a decade and enjoy her newfound wealth [and defend this wealth in courts]. After a decade of doing nothing, Mr. Ahsan found something to do, maybe even create a name for himself independent of his patron party. Good for him. But then why the hypocrisy of keeping one foot in the lawyers’ movement and the other firmly in the PPPP?

Nawaz Sharif’s reason for supporting Iftikhar Chaudhry one year ago was to get back at Musharraf, a glorified version of kindergarten revenge. Nothing more. Today, Mr. Sharif’s purpose is to grab the federal government. He believes his right to rule Pakistan was snatched away from him in 1999 and he wants it back. Now it is a good time to unsettle the PPPP government. That’s why Mr. Sharif didn’t hesitate to call Mr. Zardari ‘Musharraf’s friend’, despite the fact that Zardari played a crucial role in forcing Musharraf to resign in humiliation and that Mr. Sharif could not have done it alone no matter what.

That’s dirty Pakistani politics at its best. And so, next month, we’ll see another round of internal destabilization in Pakistan with this ‘Nawaz Sharif Movement’, and scores of innocent lawyers and the public will be made to think this is change but it’s not.

Forget judiciary and Iftikhar Chaudhry. This is about Nawaz Sharif’s march to power in Islamabad. If you accept this, then hurray to this march, but please don’t talk about ‘independent’ judiciary. There is nothing ‘independent’ about Iftikhar Chaudhry’s ‘march’.

Swat: Is the State’s Helplessness Genuine?
February 23, 2009 3:39 PM
Why has the security apparatus failed to cut the militants’ supply lines; how come random journalists can talk to Fazlullah but security forces are unable to track him down; and if the state’s helplessness is genuine, how was the administration able to successfully hold general elections in Swat? From the Daily Times, Feb. 10, 2009  » read more

Swat, the paradisal valley that once attracted throngs of tourists, has been devastated by the insurgency that gained momentum in 2007.

The military has already conducted two concerted drives to root out extremist elements, and is now in the midst of a third. Each time, natives were told that this would be the last operation. Yet the extremists return and so does the military. Civilians then face the brutalities of the militants on the one hand and collateral damage on the other.
The people of Swat have never been extremist in their outlook towards religion. Even today, as evidenced by surveys, virtually the entire population of the valley abhors the militants.
That said, there is an extremely dangerous sentiment that is setting in among the people: anger and resentment at the state security apparatus’ inability to tame the militancy. Indeed, increasingly, the people of Swat are finding holes the state’s explanations of why this is so, and are growing alienated from the army. This is the real problem, whose repercussions could be dire in the long run.
Let us view the situation from the perspective of the Swati people.
There are three popular explanations provided for the Swat insurgency. ...(..)
            Swatis ask why Sufi Muhammad was not kept in check by those who facilitated his rise; why was Fazlullah not tackled when he had been condemned by his society and was running a lone propaganda project; why did the intelligence agencies fail to predict Fazlullah’s behaviour and movement; why, even at a later stage, did the state not take notice of the public burning of CD shops and TVs (the same led to a major offensive by the state in Islamabad)?
Further, why has the security apparatus failed to cut the militants’ supply lines; how come random journalists can talk to Fazlullah but security forces are unable to track him down; and if the state’s helplessness is genuine, how was the administration able to successfully hold general elections in Swat?
The above is not to point fingers at the state. Rather, it is to highlight the questions facing the embattled people of Swat. They remain unsure about their state’s sincerity in fulfilling its social contract with the people. This is an extremely dangerous trend which, if not tackled, could further alienate the people from the state. It is high time that the state rethinks its security paradigm and become more open in its communications with the people. It should clear up the contradictory picture that is forming in the people’s minds.
Talimand Khan is currently based at the Sustainable Development Policy Institute in Islamabad and is a native of Swat. He can be reached at

We are not commenting quite yet on familiar financial issues we have been asked to comment on, because (a) certain information we hold has to be held back due to ongoing geopolitical 'real-time' considerations and (b) because other information is not yet 'hard' enough to be used.
So, instead, you may be interested in the following description of filthy EU pigs with their stinking snouts in the feeding trough that appeared in an article in Murdoch's Sunday Times, even, on 22nd February:

'The past few months have been an interesting time to be working in Brussels'.

'Outside, in the real world, reputable banks crumbled to dust, shares went into a nosedive, big companies became close to worthless, hundreds of thousands lost their jobs and millions feared the worst. Inside the Eurobubble, you'd hardly have known. The elite continued to go to champagne
receptions in the evenings before eating in highly-rated restaurants at taxpayers' expense'.

'They continued to flit from city to city to attend meetings; continued to fly around the world on fact-finding missions; and continued to think up ever more rules and regulations to help organise the lives of the European Union's 500 million citizens'.

Our only further comment would be that had the Editor written this, the language would have been, as the erstwhile Carlyle employee John Major used to say, 'not inconsiderably' fruitier.

World Financial System In A State Of Insolvency
Bob Chapman    The International Forecaster       February 23, 2009
The tenor of the gold market has changed. Gold has decoupled from the dollar and at the moment it is not driven by fear of inflation or hyperinflation, but by a flight to quality. What else can be expected when the media reports that governments are deliberately creating inflation to offset deflation?
Jewelry demand that normally makes up 80% of gold demand has dropped and investment demand is what is now driving buying. SPDR Gold Trust, the ETF GLD, has added 200 tons of gold over the past six weeks and 62,000 ounces last week alone. We are very skeptical regarding GLD’s gold purchases due to a tight market and no reports of their purchases.
They may be using derivatives illegally and if they are and
the derivatives fail the owners of the fund will be left with little of their investment.
President Barack Obama’s new foreclosure-prevention plan is already sparking outrage from some Americans who won’t qualify for federal aid — and from those who resent having to foot the bill for those who do
The US dollar is no longer the premier safe haven, gold is.
Gold is finally being recognized as wealth insurance.
It has also decoupled from the influence of oil and other commodities. Even Russia in the face of terrible oil prices and one devaluation after another has purchased 90 tons of gold over the past 15 months.
Banks are being nationalized worldwide and people are becoming
frightened and well they should be. The world is facing a major depression and banks are broke and being nationalized, and this is only the beginning.
The global financial system is in a tailspin and world leadership in Europe, China, Japan and the US act like the situation is some temporary breakdown.
The system is beyond saving and the elitists planned it that way.
We have entered depression, which is stage 2 of the crisis and
simultaneously stage 2 of the long bull market in gold and silver.
As autumn comes the dollar will have broken to new lows versus
other major currencies and gold and silver, as inflation rages.
We could be looking at a dollar trading between 40 and 65 on the USDX, dollar index. In 2010 economic and financial distress will worsen. Some countries will slip into chaos. The fabric of society is going to be torn apart.
Today’s financial system is in a state of insolvency. The best example is the highly volatile combination of US dollars and dollar denominated assets and debt. Their problems are shared by most nations, their having copied what the US and England were doing.
These problems unfortunately have yet to be adequately addressed
and that is why the situation gets progressively worse. Massive injections of liquidity were used in the 1930s with similar unsuccessful results.
How can anyone believe that substituting public debt for toxic private debt is any solution? In the US $12 to $13 trillion has already been injected into the system, truly a mind-boggling amount and that is in just one year. ...(..)
 Benjamin Fulford: THERE'S A ~LOT~ OF GOLD IN THEM THAR HILLS (views: 1226)
hobie -- Tuesday, 24 February 2009, 3:57 a.m.
Benjamin Fulford's blog entry for Feb 24:
The financial elite have been divided between gold and paper factions
Apparently there has long existed a big schism amongst the financial elite. The group around the Rothschilds who began creating fiat money (out of thin air) were able to accumulate enormous wealth. To keep themselves in power, they prevented certain parties (for example the Thai royal family) from selling their vast physical gold holdings. This created what is known as “black gold” that is real but does not have the stamp from a “recognized refinery” that allows it to become part of the international financial system. The story we have all heard about “all the gold that was ever mined since the dawn of civilization would fit in an Olympic sized swimming pool” is apparently a lie. Some of the numbers I have been hearing are astronomical and I have also been shown pictures of what appear to be vast amounts of gold. The holders of this gold are pushing for a new gold-backed international financial system. Personally, I think money should be backed by a basket of real things (like grain). However, it is a pretty safe bet the “black gold” will be allowed into the financial system and that precious metals would form a vital part of any basket of commodities.
Eleven States Declare Sovereignty Over Obama’s Action
by A.W.R. Hawkins                02/23/2009
State governors -- looking down the gun barrel of long-term spending forced on them by the Obama “stimulus” plan -- are saying they will refuse to take the money. This is a Constitutional confrontation between the federal government and the states unlike any in our time.
In the first five weeks of his presidency, Barack Obama has acted so rashly that at least 11 states have decided that his brand of “hope” equates to an intolerable expansion of the federal government’s authority over the states. These states -- Washington, New Hampshire, Arizona, Montana, Michigan, Missouri, Oklahoma, California, Georgia, South Carolina, and Texas -- have passed resolutions reminding Obama that the 10th Amendment protects the rights of the states, which are the rights of the people, by limiting the power of the federal government. These resolutions call on Obama to “cease and desist” from his reckless government expansion and also indicate that federal laws and regulations implemented in violation of the 10th Amendment can be nullified by the states.
Our Constitutional system of checks and balances is always thought of as enabling two of the three branches of the federal government to keep the third within its constitutional bounds. But there is a fourth check, the states, which also have a Constitutional function. It is to them this burden now falls. The states can choose between allowing the federal government to impose untenable conditions on them if they accept the stimulus money, or to reject it.
These eleven states have the right to reject the stimulus plan. And they must.
There is no other option. For this federal expansion will not stop unless we stand in its way with courage in our hearts and the Constitution in our hands.

Obama is a communist. He wants to go down as a revolutionary in the same context as Marx, Lenin, Mao. His model is Abraham Lincoln and the civil war he started and finished. Obama is reversing generations of careful U.S. government policy of salami slice conquest of America and openly confronting those that still cherish Freedom, believing he can win with the full power of the US government, bureaucrats, welfare dependents, his Obama cult followers and thug cops and soldiers.
The Winds Of Civil War: Illinois-Driven Marxist Attempt To Conquer Union Threatened With Military Challenges
February 23rd, 2009 Posted By Pat Dollard.
New Hampshire fired the first shot. Although 7 other states have similar pending resolutions and bills, the Oklahoma House is the first to actually pass one. Another 27 states are expected to make similar moves in the coming months. That’ll leave the country split 71-29.
Now, before you get too excited, bear in mind that all of this was likely Obama’s goal. To bait us into rebellion. Boiled down, all of these state measures are threats of secession. Recall, if you will, Obama’s obsession to be the 21st Century Abraham Lincoln, and his ominous calls to recreate and rebuild America. Who was Lincoln? Why, he was the man who “preserved” the Union by way of implementing military force against states that had seceded. Lincoln knew full well that he would not be preserving the Union, but that he would be conquering sovereign nations, nations whose cultures and ideologies he would then have to destroy, and then remake, in the image of the North’s, in order to maintain their subjugation. And that is precisely what happened in the aftermath of Lincoln’s war of aggression. He didn’t preserve the Union, he changed it forever and handed unprecedented powers to the Federal Government.
The Lincoln household was most characterized by a dark spirit, an unyielding pall of gloom. He was plagued by mysterious and absolutely crippling headaches. Three of his sons were struck dead before age 20. His wife slowly went insane, the result of a ceaseless, degenerative depression. Lincoln was assassinated.
Now I’m going to run with a theory.
So, what if Obama, Soros and Emanuel understand fully that our current, sudden, violent lurch into Socialism will not be tolerated by many to most of the American people, and that these people may possess sufficient physical concentration in order to secede in large territorial chunks, including those already defined by current state borders? They understand that they will be facing a crisis, right? Well, what is a crisis to the current Marxist regime of Obama other than an opportunity? Based on Emanuel’s stated philosophy, one can conclude that he and Obama seek the greatest crisis that they can possibly create.....(...)

There is NO TIME LEFT for you to take the luxury of non-involvement. You will face a time when you will give an account to your family as to why you couldn't or wouldn't take the time to educate yourself about your nation’s sacred history. You will stand alone as the verdict comes in that you were negligent in NOT preparing to protect and care for your family and friends during military government (Martial Law) because of a “terrorist” attack, financial/stock market collapse or any other number of possibilities real or contrived that gives the government the justification for arrest and indefinite incarceration in detention camps already built for you and your loved ones. THEY ALREADY EXIST!! These detention/ re-education camps are for those who aren't willing to submit to the new global order that is about to be established.
Precisely because you are uninformed and intentionally ignorant, you will blindly board the truck that takes you to your likely last destination. You will trust the government to help you one last time. Some of you will stumble around the camp looking for your welfare check, prescription drugs or how you can contact the nearest legal defense or ACLU attorney so that you can take the camp commander to court for mistreatment. You, who I have just described, deserve a detention camp. “…..may your chains rest lightly upon your wrists.”

Additional Info about "ENDGAME"

A number of you have called me today asking if I have additional info about ENDGAME rather than seemingly rely upon WhatDoesItMean. The answer is YES.

Further details will be forthcoming later today to substantiate the material below. I must use caution about what I release so as not to compromise my source.

Au plaisir de vous voir tous ce week-end !
