Rachel Corrie’s family loses wrongful death appeal in Israel’s supreme court

Family of US woman killed in Gaza 12 years ago had sought to hold Israel liable for her death, but judges uphold decision of lower court in Haifa

Israel’s supreme court has rejected the appeal by the family of Rachel Corrie – the US activist who was crushed to death by a military bulldozer in Gaza 12 years ago – which had sought to hold Israel liable for her death.

The ruling, which followed a high-profile hearing before Israel’s top court last year, appears to bring to an end – in the Israeli courts at least – years of effort by Corrie’s family to hold the country’s military responsible for her death.

Instead, the court upheld the decision of a lower court, which invoked the “combat activities exception” that the Israeli military cannot be held responsible for damages in a war zone.

“Our family is disappointed but not surprised,” the Corrie family said in a statement released on Thursday. “Nevertheless, it is clear that this decision, affirming the August 2012 lower court finding, amounts to judicial sanction of immunity for Israeli military forces when they commit injustices and human rights violations.

“Despite the verdict, our family remains convinced we were correct in bringing this case forward,” the family said. “The day after Rachel was killed, Prime Minister Sharon promised President Bush a thorough, credible and transparent investigation. Clearly, that standard was not met.”

In 2003, 23-year old Corrie, from Olympia in Washington state, was a volunteer with the International Solidarity Movement protesting against the Israeli military’s house destructions in Rafah, in the southern Gaza strip, when she was run over and killed.

Her death became an international cause célèbre.

Corrie’s family had been pursuing a lawsuit against Israel’s defence ministry, charging that Israel’s military had either killed her deliberately, or that they were guilty of negligence in not demonstrating more care when she attempted to block the bulldozer.

The family had been appealing against the decision of a lower court in Haifa in 2012 that absolved the Israeli military of responsibility for her death, describing it as a “regrettable accident.”

The Corrie family first began proceedings in 2005 – two years after their daughter’s death – arguing in court that the military should have suspended the bulldozing operations until the protesters had been removed from the area.

The appeal last year attracted considerable attention, although it was clear from the exchanges between the judges and the Corrie family lawyer that it would be an uphill struggle to persuade the court. Rachel’s mother Cindy had criticised the 2012 court ruling in Haifa as “a symptom of a broken system of accountability within Israel and our own US government” that had failed to deliver accountability for her daughter’s death.

The Israeli military had long argued that the area in which Rachel Corrie was killed was a “closed military zone” where there had been recent violence – a claim challenged by family’s lawyer Hussein Abu Hussein.

The judge in the Haifa case also accepted the claim by the Israeli military that troops in the area had recently been attacked with a grenade – an assertion also challenged by the family.

Rachel’s parents, Craig and Cindy, had dedicated themselves almost full-time to their quest to learn the truth about their daughter’s death, an event tangled in the contradictory claims by by Israeli soldiers, which often seemed at odds with official military logs.

The 2012 hearing accepted the claim by the unidentified bulldozer driver that he did not see Corrie standing in front of his when he ran her over despite the fact she was wearing a fluorescent jacket.

 

Instead, judge Oded Gershon held her responsible for her own death. “She did not move away as any reasonable person would have done,” Gershon ruled. “But she chose to endanger herself … and thus found her death.”

In a separate ruling, however, the supreme court reversed a second lower court decision relating to claims that Corrie’s body was mishandled after her autopsy. That had led to claims that some of her remains were misplaced. That case will now go back to court.

Corrie’s story inspired the 2005 play My Name is Rachel Corrie, written by Guardian US editor Katharine Viner, which was based on Corrie’s writings. The play has been staged across the world, and will be performed this spring in New York for the first time.

Russian General: “The USSR Collapsed and the Same Fate Has Been Prepared for the USA”

 

 

From The Intel Hub

By Mac Slavo
SHTFPlan.com
Oct 2, 2012

In the following video commentary Russian General Konstantin P. Petrov (Ret.) asks some interesting questions and includes his own thoughts (perhaps the non-official Russian position) about a variety of topics that include the end of US dollar hegemony, the orchestration of the 9-11 attacks to engage America in a mideast war, the puppeteers behind the politicians and the coming premeditated collapse of the United States of America as we know it.

While here in the United States we remain enclosed in a propaganda bubble controlled by western multi-billion dollar media conglomerates, business interests and political alliances, there can be no doubt that other schools of thought exist throughout the world. What may seem like reality to our populace is perhaps nothing more than illusion.

The United States does not exist in a vacuum.

As such, we simply cannot ignore the assessments, outlook and opinions of foreign leadership as they pertain to the global implications of current events.

How did they ruin the USSR? They called the Soviet Union a ‘prison for people’ and an ‘evil empire’.

The same thing is being done to the United States.

We also intervened in Afghanistan and do you remember how that ended? It’s the same thing with the United States, and the American can’t do anything there.

Now the entire muslim world hates the United States.

And when the global mafia dumps the dollar the entire world will think that the Americans deserved this.

But this won’t benefit people in our country, especially those who’ve been saving up dollars.

There’s another thing that we should take into account.

In the United States lives 5% of the world’s population, but Americans consume 50% of the world’s energy resources.

The global mafia sees this as a problem.

…Some of our people who fled to the US, and now live there on welfare, live better there unemployed than they would have lived in Russia even if they were employed.

The slave masters think that this situation in the US is unacceptable because even the slaves live relatively well there. 

So the United States is doomed too in this sense.

Even if you’re the head of a mighty state and you don’t understand global politics and don’t understand the methods of global politics you’re still a hostage of the global mafia.

The leadership of the USSR and the leadership of the USA carried out internal and external politics, but the global mafia carries out global politics.

The USSR collapsed and the same fate has been prepared for the USA.

Kissinger, US intelligence community endorse “World Without Israel

 

 

From the Trenches World Report

Posted on October 2, 2012 by NC

Press TV  

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been vilified in the Western media for daring to imagine “a world without Israel.”

But according to news reports,Henry Kissinger and sixteen American intelligence agencies agree that in the near future, Israel will no longer exist. 

The New York Post quotes Kissinger “word for word”In 10 years, there will be no more Israel.

Kissinger’s statement is flat and unqualified.

He is not saying that Israel is in danger, but could be saved if we just gave it additional trillions of dollars and smashed enough of its enemies with our military.

He is not saying that if we elect Netanyahu’s old friend Mitt Romney, Israel could somehow be salvaged.

He is not saying that if we bomb Iran, Israel might survive.

He is not offering a way out.

He is simply stating a fact: In 2022, Israel will no longer exist.

The US Intelligence Community agrees, though perhaps not on the precise 2022 expiration date.

Sixteen US intelligence agencies with a combined budget over USD70 billion have issued an 82-page analysis titled Preparing for a Post-Israel Middle East.”

The US intelligence report observes that the 700,000 Israeli settlers illegally squatting on land stolen in 1967 – land that the entire world agrees belongs to Palestine, not Israel – are not going to pack up and leave peacefully.

Since the world will never accept their ongoing presence on stolen land, Israel is like South Africa in the late 1980s.

The extremist Likud coalition governing Israel, according to the US intelligence report, is increasingly condoning and supporting rampant violence and lawlessness by illegal settlers.

The report states that the brutality and criminality of the settlers, and the growing apartheid-style infrastructure including the apartheid wall and the ever-more-draconian system of checkpoints, are indefensible, unsustainable, and out of synch with American values.

The sixteen US intelligence agencies agree that Israel cannot withstand the coming pro-Palestinian juggernaut consisting of the Arab Spring, the Islamic Awakening, and the rise of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

In the past, dictatorships in the region kept a lid on the pro-Palestinian aspirations of their people.

But those dictatorships began to topple with the fall of the pro-Israel Shah of Iran in 1979 and the establishment of a democratic Islamic Republic, whose government had little choice but to reflect its people’s opposition to Israel.

The same process – the overthrow of dictators who worked with, or at least tolerated, Israel – is now accelerating throughout the region. The result will be governments that are more democratic, more Islamic, and far less friendly to Israel.

The US intelligence community report says that in light of these realities, the US government simply no longer has the military and financial resources to continue propping up Israel against the wishes of more than a billion of its neighbors.

In order to normalize relations with 57 Islamic countries, the report suggests, the US will have to follow its own national interests and pull the plug on Israel. 

Interestingly, neither Henry Kissinger nor the authors of the US Intelligence Report give any sign that they are going to mourn the demise of Israel.

This is remarkable, given that Kissinger is Jewish and has always been viewed as a friend (if occasionally a tough friend) of Israel, and that all Americans, including those who work for intelligence agencies, have been influenced by the strongly pro-Israel media.

What explains such complacency?

Americans who pay attention to international affairs – a category that surely includes Kissinger and the authors of the Intelligence Report – are growing fed up with Israeli intransigence and fanaticism.

Netanyahu’s bizarre, widely-ridiculed performance at the United Nations, where he brandished a cartoonish caricature of a bomb in such a way that he himself came across as a caricature of a “mad Zionist,” was the latest in a series of gaffes by Israeli leaders who seem prone to overplaying their hand.

A second factor is the festering resentment many Americans feel over the Israel Lobby’s imperious domination of public discourse.

Every time a well-known American journalist is fired for going “off-script” about Israel, as happened to Helen Thomas and Rick Sanchez, a mostly-invisible backlash, like a tidal wave rippling beneath the surface of the ocean, grows in power.

And every time the Israel lobby slaps down someone like Maureen Dowd, who recently observed that the same Israel-fanatics who dragged the US into the Iraq war are now trying to do the same thing with Iran, the more people begin to wake up and realize that people like Dowd, Thomas, and Sanchez are speaking the truth.

A third reason for complacency in the face of Israel’s impending demise: The American Jewish community is no longer united in support of Israel, much less its Likudnik leadership.

Sophisticated Jewish journalists and analysts like Philip Weiss are recognizing the insanity of Israel’s current leadership and the hopelessness of its predicament.

 According to recent reports, it is no longer fashionable among young American Jews to care about Israel.

And despite Netanyahu’s frantic attempts to sway Jewish voters toward the Mormon Likudnik Mitt Romney, polls show that Obama, who is on record saying he “hates” the “liar” Netanyahu, will easily win the majority of Jewish votes.

Finally, we come to the least obvious – but most powerful – reason for Kissinger’s and the CIA’s complacency in the face of Israel’s implosion: The inexorable trickle-down of knowledge that Israel and its supporters, not radical Muslims, carried out the 9/11 false-flag attacks.

Increasingly, it is not fringe anti-Semitic groups, but high-level responsible observers, who are saying this.

Alan Sabrosky, the half-Jewish former Director of Strategic Studies at the US Army War College, has come on my radio show to say that he has discussed with his colleagues the “100% certainty” that Israel and its supporters did 9/11.

And Alan Hart, the former lead BBC correspondent for the Middle East (and personal friend of Golda Meir and Yasser Arafat) has also come on my radio show to break the story that he, too, knows that Israel and company orchestrated 9/11.

Today, we even have a presidential candidate, Merlin Miller, who is on the record stating that Israel, not al-Qaeda, carried out the 9/11 attacks. 

The chief purpose of 9/11 was to “seal in blood” an intense, unbreakable emotional bond between the US and Israel, in a desperate bid to assure Israel’s survival by launching a long-term US war against Israel’s enemies.

As the “dancing Israelis”arrested for celebrating the 9/11 operation tried to convince the police: “Our enemies are your enemies. The Palestinians are your enemies.”

But more and more Americans, including the US intelligence community as a whole, now recognize that the enemies of Israel (the entire Muslim world of over 1.5 billion people, along with most of the non-European world) do not have to be the enemies of the United States.

In fact, the US is going broke and sacrificing thousands of lives in wars for Israel – wars that damage, rather than aid, US strategic interests. (One of those interests, of course, is buying oil and gas from stable, cooperative governments.)

As the recognition grows that 9/11 was not a radical Islamic attack, but an act of dastardly, bloody treason by supporters of Israel, it will become ever-easier for American policy makers, following in the footsteps of Kissinger and the sixteen intelligence agencies, to recognize the obvious: Israel has reached the end of its shelf-life.

Hart : Carter slams U.S. Supreme Court for its endorsement of corruption

Carter expressed his hope that “the Supreme Court will reverse that stupid ruling”

 

Sept. 11, 2012: Former President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn discuss some of the accomplishments made by the Carter Center. (AP)

From My Catbird Seat

by Alan Hart – October 03, 2012

I have often said and written that in some important respects America is the least democratic country in the world because what passes for democracy there is for sale to the highest bidders (the Zionist lobby being one of them).

It’s now apparent that former President Jimmy Carter agrees.

In his latest Conversation at the Carter Center, he said:

You know how much I raised to run against Gerald Ford? Zero. You know how much I raised to run against Ronald Reagan? Zero. You know how much will be raised this year by all presidential, Senate and House campaigns? $6 billion. That’s 6,000 millions.”

(It was “zero” from private donors, corporates and individuals, because Carter accepted public funding).

That was part of his devastating indictment of the U.S. electoral process which, he said, is shot through with financial corruption that threatens American democracy.” He added: We have one of the worst election processes in the world right here in the United States of America, and it’s almost entirely because of the excessive influx of money.”

And that’s because of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2010 ruling that gave unlimited freedom to special interest groups, which represent the wishes and demands of corporations and lobbyists of all kinds, to provide unlimited campaign funding to third-parties that don’t have to disclose their donors.

(The Supreme Court justified its decision on the grounds that the First Amendment of the American Constitution prohibits government from restricting independent political expenditures by corporations and unions).

Carter expressed his hope that “the Supreme Court will reverse that stupid ruling,”

President Obama is on the record in a chat with the internet community Reddit as saying that if the Supreme Court does not revisit the issue, he will seek to challenge its ruling by pushing for a constitutional amendment.

(Right now Obama’s concern is obviously aggravated by the fact that a handful of conservative billionaires – some if not all of them rabid supporters of the Zionist state of Israel right or wrong – are pumping in hundreds of millions of dollars to saturate media markets in vital swing states.

They seem to share one of the ideas that drove Adolf Hitler’s propaganda maestros – no matter how big the lie, the more you tell it, the more likely it is to be believed. Zionism knows that to be true).

There is also support for Carter and Obama’s contempt for the Supreme Court ruling from Judge Richard Posner.

He is a highly respected member of the Chicago-based Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, widely regarded as his nation’s most prolific jurist-academic and seen by some as the most influential judge outside of the nine members of the Supreme Court.

What has he said? This:

Our political system is pervasively corrupt due to our Supreme Court taking away campaign-contribution restrictions on the basis of the First Amendment.”

In a recent National Public Radio interview Judge Posner also expressed a degree of contempt for what he described as the “real deterioration in conservative thinking” in recent years.

He added: “ I’ve become less conservative since the Republican Party started becoming goofy.”

(From my side of the water it seems that if Romney’s funders fail in their efforts to buy the White House for him, the Republican Party will have no future unless its moderate, old-fashioned conservatives break away from the “goofy” extremists who have taken over the party machine).

It might well be that a second-term Obama will seek to mobilize support for a constitutional amendment to enable the Supreme Court’s ruling to be reversed, but his chances of success on that front would be poor to say the least because a constitutional amendment requires ratification by three-quarters of the country’s 50 states.

As I write I am reminded (as I noted in my book  Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews) that President Kennedy tried and failed several times to introduce legislation to end the corruption of election campaign funding; and I can almost hear some of my readers saying, “Yes, and look what happened to him!”

RACHEL CORRIE’S MOTHER SPEAKS OF ISRAEL’S DISTURBING COURT RULING

 

 

From DesertPeace

October 02, 2012

The deeply disturbing Israel court ruling on Rachel Corrie

The wrongful death lawsuit for Rachel Corrie was not a solution, but rather a symptom of a broken system of accountability within Israel and the U.S. government, writes guest columnist Cindy Corrie.

By Cindy Corrie

LAST month, in a deeply disturbing ruling, an Israeli court dismissed the civil lawsuit brought by my family against the state of Israel for the wrongful death of my daughter Rachel Corrie.

Born and raised in Olympia, Rachel was a human-rights defender and peace activist killed in 2003 by an armored Israeli military bulldozer as she stood for hours, visibly and nonviolently protesting the Israeli government’s policy of civilian home demolitions in Rafah, Gaza.

The home Rachel and her friends from the International Solidarity Movement defended was eventually demolished with hundreds more in mass-clearing operations to create a buffer along Gaza’s southern border.

Our lawsuit was not a solution, but rather a symptom of a broken system of accountability within Israel and our own U.S. government.

Despite a promise from Israel Prime Minister Ariel Sharon for a “thorough, credible, and transparent” investigation and repeated calls from the highest levels of our government for such an investigation to occur, there was no diplomatic resolution.

According to the U.S. State Department, its calls “have gone unanswered or ignored.”

Court testimony also confirmed a credible investigation did not occur.

Investigators failed to question key military witnesses, including those recording communications; failed to secure the military video, allowing it to be taken for nearly a week by senior commanders with only segments submitted to court;

failed to address conflicting soldiers’ testimonies; and ignored damning statements in the military log confirming a “shoot to kill” order and command mentality to continue work in order not to create a precedent with activists.

I had no illusions about the uphill battle we faced in Israeli court, but as I sat with my family in a packed courtroom awaiting the verdict, I held hope that, like so many observing the trial, the judge would see that evidence warranted some criticism of the military’s actions.

The room was filled with human-rights observers, U.S. Embassy officials, family supporters and a throng of media.

Judge Oded Gershon surveyed the scene before reading his decision.

From the halting tone of my translator and friend, and audible groans around us, I knew it was bad.

He ruled that Rachel was killed as an act of war, which, according to Israeli law, absolves the military of responsibility.

He added that she alone was to blame for her own killing and then went on to commend the military police for their professionalism in carrying out such a credible investigation.

The courtroom heard the judge parrot the state prosecuting attorneys’ original claims in the case, nearly verbatim.

Condemnation of the verdict was swift and decisive, ranging from President Jimmy Carter to the United Nations, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and others, all pointing out the climate of impunity enjoyed by the Israeli military, as well as the court thumbing its nose at the Geneva Conventions.

The verdict sends a dangerous message for future protections of civilians and human-rights observers.

The outcry was humbling, but the verdict represents a very personal challenge.

With 45 days to determine whether to appeal, I weigh heavily the toll this ongoing effort takes.

Our nearly decade long search for information and a modicum of justice has turned into a war of attrition — a state versus a family.

As problematic as the process has been, our family has had access to a legal system, a basic tenet of justice most Palestinians are denied. They struggle, far harder than we, for their day in court.

Their stories are shadowed by the unjust silence that too often accompanies the word “Palestinian.”

We have sought truth, but also changes in policies Rachel came to Gaza to oppose — brutal Israeli military actions often targeting civilian populations resulting in unlawful killings and destruction of property with impunity.

An Israeli colonel testified there are no civilians in war.

Rachel was in Gaza because there are civilians there with rights to be protected.

No army is above the law when it comes to protection of civilians under occupation or during armed conflict.

Rachel taught us that when governments fail to act, people must step forward.

When atrocities are committed in our name, we must shine a spotlight on them.

Our family will determine the next critical steps with Rachel’s spirit surrounding us.

Our journey continues, alongside those who, despite the odds, pursue equal rights and nonviolence, human rights, peace and justice for all in the region and world beyond.

*Cindy Corrie is the mother of Rachel Corrie and the president of the Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace and Justice based in Olympia.

October Surprise – A Portal Into a New Timeline?

 

 

October Surprise – A Portal Into a New Timeline? | in5d.com | Esoteric, Spiritual and Metaphysical Database

From in5d

www.HolisticCancerResearch.com

Many people can innately feel that something big is about to happen but are not sure exactly what that event might be.

Astrologer Carl Boudreaux made a few interesting statements in his October 2012 Astrology report where he stated  three fascinating possibilities:

  1. Existing trends will veer suddenly and rapidly in new directions

  2. New trends and phenomena will spring suddenly and forcefully into existence and

  3. The whole chart seems like a portal into an entirely different time line

I have spoken to other astrologists and psychics who also feel that something huge is about to happen this month.

As for myself, I keep getting the feeling that a bank run might occur this month as we near the end of the Federal Reserve’s 100 year charter at the end of the year. 

The Fed will either need to create some false flag event or help to perpetuate a war in order to survive. 

As we know, history always repeats itself, so it wouldn’t be surprising if there was a bank run sometime this month, possibly on October 19th or 26th. 

Another couple of numerological dates might be on either October 16th  or 25th, which in numerology equals 13.

10/16/2012 = 1+0+1+6+2+0+1+2 = 13

10/25/2012 = 1+0+2+5+2+0+1+2 = 13

On a more positive note, it is quite fun to speculate the meaning of a portal into a different timeline.

To me, this means the end of the cabal and the beginning of a new age of truth and compassion for one another. 

Perhaps it might even mean some sort of vibrational shift where mass awakening occurs?

Whether this event occurs this month or sometime in the near future, many people are feeling like we are on the verge of something really big.

What do you think it is?

News Alert: military planes spotted dumping radioactive cesium near Fukushima

 

 

From Benjamin Fulford’s Blog

September 04, 2012

White Dragon Society affiliates in Fukushima prefecture are reporting that until recently planes have been dumping radioactive cesium on mountainsides in Fukushima prefecture.

These planes have now been banned from Japan but are still dumping radio-active waste elsewhere as a part of the ongoing Fukushima nuclear terror psychological warfare operation.

The planes began dumping the radioactive material in the months following the attack in order to try to force the evacuation of greater Tokyo.

We can also report from multiple Geiger counter readings made in and around Fukushima that heavy rains have washed away most of the original radiation emitted following the March 11, 2011 nuclear and tsunami terror attack.

Message to the mass murdering terrorists: we are coming to get you. There will soon be nowhere left on the planet to hide.

TSA Caught In Huge Power Grab!

 

 

Published on Sep 3, 2012 by 

TSA thugs are proud of the fact that in all 50 states they are testing peoples drinks and food that is purchased after they pass the abuse and harassment control freak checkpoints of the TSA “officers”.

This is nothing but a power grab where the public are conditioned to put up with any command no matter how mindless.

The airports are tyranny zones where the criminal government test new forms of domination on the sheep like public before rolling it out on the street.

Video Shows TSA’s Bizarre New Security Policy

Federal agency tests drinks purchased inside airport

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Monday, September 3, 2012

A video clip shot yesterday at Columbus Ohio Airport illustrates how the Transportation Security Administration has dreamed up a bizarre new way to waste time and taxpayer dollars – by testing drinks purchased by travelers for explosives inside the airport long after they have already passed security.

The footage shows TSA agents walking around a departure lounge asking to test passengers’ drinks for explosive residue with a swab they hold over the liquid.

“Now remember that this is inside the terminal, well beyond the security check and purchased inside the terminal…just people waiting to get on the plane,” writes the You Tube user who uploaded the video.

“My wife and son came back from a coffee shop just around the corner, then we were approached. I asked them what they were doing. One of the TSA ladies said that they were checking for explosive chemicals (as we are drinking them). I said “really – inside the terminal? You have got to be kidding me.”

I asked them if they wanted to swab us all.

She responded with something like, ‘yes sometimes we need to do that’.

I then asked if she wanted a urine sample…nonetheless, the TSA is way out of control,” he adds, joking that the TSA’s next move could be to visit people’s homes before they even leave for the airport (they’re already in the parking lot demanding to search people who aren’t even flying!)

As we have previously highlighted, the drinks policy was recently introduced with virtually no explanation from the TSA whatsoever. The much vaunted 2006 liquid bomb plot on which this nonsense is all based completely collapsed in court and was revealed to be farcical at best.

Experts have savaged rules relating to liquids being carried through security as pointless and unnecessary and yet they still remain in place six years later, with ludicrous cases routinely popping up of mothers having to drink their own breast milk or even pump it into empty bottles.

But this new rule applies to drinks purchased within the airport after travelers have already passed airport security, items that have presumably already had to pass some form of security check to be brought inside the airport in the first place.

The drinks testing farce has been accompanied by other harebrained TSA schemes which have virtually nothing to do with genuine security and everything to do with subjecting the public to intimidation and obedience training.

The federal agency recently brought in a similarly asinine new policy in which travelers are ordered to “freeze” on command by TSA screeners while passing through security – for no apparent reason other than to check they will obey orders without question.

Perhaps the TSA should concentrate on real security threats and cleaning up the behavior of their own criminally-prone employees instead of harassing travelers who have already been through the ordeal of a grope down or a radiation body scan.

Given the fact that TSA agents now festoon political eventshighways and even prom nights, how long is it before we have blue-shirted goons in fast food restaurants checking whether or not our Diet Cokes are weapons of mass destruction?

Mainstream Media (Can You Believe IT ??) begins questioning safety of fluoride

 

 

Main Stream Media’s Usual Stance on Truth !

From the Trenches World Report

Posted on September 4, 2012 by Admin

Natural News – Dr. Keith Ablow, a prominent psychiatrist and member of the Fox News ”Medical A-Team,” recently wrote an editorial for the newsgiant that questions the safety of water fluoridation in light of all the recent science illustrating its dangers.

The piece is indicative of an increasing awareness, even within the mainstream media, that Americans have not been told the full story about fluoride, despite having it largely forced on them in the name of promoting dental health.

Citing a recent scientific review compiled by experts at Harvard University that identifies a clear link between fluoride exposure and brain damage, Dr. Ablow rightly presses the issue about whether or not fluoridating public water supplies truly is in the best interests of promoting public health.

 NaturalNews also recently covered the Harvard study, which was published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives. (http://www.naturalnews.com/036873_fluoride_lower_IQ_brain_damage.html)

Surprising that it would come from a source like Fox News, Dr. Ablow points out that a comprehensive analysis of 27 different fluoride studies confirms that fluoride damages brain tissue, particularly in unborn babies and young children.

Such exposure to fluoride, which comes not only from drinking fluoridated water but also from bathing in it, ends up significantly lowering the average IQ level among children exposed, the analysis found.

Not only that, fluoride exposure visibly changes cellular structures in the brain,according to Dr. Ablow’s analysis of the study, which in turn increases levels of aluminum in brain tissue.

This aluminum buildup coincides with the formation of beta-amyloid plaques in the brain which, as you may recall, are linked to the development of Alzheimer’s disease and various other forms of dementia.

What the Harvard study confirms, in other words, is that even relatively minimal exposure to fluoride among children and babies is linked to brain development abnormalities, dementia, and other forms of mental illness.

And as we have pointed out numerous times before here at NaturalNewsfluoride also replaces natural iodine in the thyroid and other glands, causing severe hormonal changes that affect numerous aspects of human health. (http://www.naturalnews.com/031317_fluoride_iodine.html)

All of this emerging research, of course, is what prompted the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to adjust its recommendation for optimal fluoride levels in public water supplies (http://www.naturalnews.com/030952_CDC_fluoride.html).

There simply is no way for so-called health experts and conventional dentists to legitimately continue denying that fluoride exposure is toxic, particularly for the youngest members of society.

Why, then, are cities like Portland, Oregon, which have long refused to jump on the fluoridation bandwagon, now suddenly considering adding fluoride to their water supplies? (http://www.naturalnews.com)

This is essentially the same question being asked by Fox News Dr. Ablow, who admits that, based on all the available data, it makes no scientific sense to deliver fluoride chemicals via the water supply, if at all.

You can read Dr. Ablow’s write-up here: http://www.foxnews.com

Oppose fluoridation of Portland’s water supply on September 6

Concerning Portland’s proposed addition of fluoride to the public water supply, health freedom advocates and those opposed to forcibly mass-medicating Portland residents with fluoride toxins can attend, and even speak at, an open hearing on September 6 at 2:00 pm at Portland City Hall.

The hearing will take place on thesecond floor of the building in the Council Chambers, which is located at 1221 SW 4th Ave. in Portland.

The official City Council vote on whether or not to fluoridate will reportedly take place on September 12.

To learn more, and to contact the Portland City Council to express vehement opposition to water fluoridation, visit: http://www.portlandonline.com/index.cfm?c=28533

 The Diaspora Jewish community’s refusal to hear about atrocities committed by Israel

(Australian papers cover atrocities documented by Israeli soldiers group, but Aussie Jewish orgs blindly deny the reports)

 

 

From MONDOWEISS

by  on September 4, 2012

Fresh news about the Diaspora Jewish community’s refusal to hear about atrocities committed by Israel, let alone act on them, even as the wider community seems to be opening its eyes. 

Last week the Israeli soldiers’ group Breaking the Silence released a staggering report on the abuse, dehumanization, and shootings of Palestinian children by the Israeli army.

The report demonstrates that Israeli soldiers cross moral red lines without concern because they know they will never be punished for destroying Palestinians’ human rights.

Sadly, the report has gotten scarcely any attention in the US media. But it has been covered in Europe and Australia.

Two leading Australian papers published a big story on the report: The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald.

Antony Loewenstein has a post up on the matter, chronicling the angry response by Jewish groups to the news:

The Aus­tralian Jew­ish News was out­raged, pro­vid­ing a space for Zion­ist spokes­peo­ple to damn all the al­le­ga­tions:

“ Another Israel-bashing headline”, “a flagrantly one-sided piece” and “ threadbare and unsubstantiated ­allegations”

A state­ment was re­leased by Danny Lamm, Pres­i­dent of the Ex­ec­u­tive Coun­cil of Aus­tralian Jewry:

“How sad it is that once-great broad­sheets like the Syd­ney Morn­ing Her­ald and The Age have been re­duced to fea­tur­ing crude pro­pa­ganda on their front page.

Loewenstein notes that the bash was then joined by the head of the Israel lobby in Australia, Colin Ruben­stein, and a Jewish Labor MP named Michael Danby, who sought to leverage financial pressure on the newspapers:

Michael Danby told J-Wire: “I felt The Age cov­er­age was worse than the Syd­ney Morn­ing Her­ald’s as their head­line was more bi­ased and the graph­ics used were larger and more emo­tive.”

Speaking at the opening in Melbourne of the Is­raeli Film Fes­ti­val, Danby said: “I was not surprised to see the Fair­fax share price plum­met­ing. On days when hun­dreds of civil­ians were being killed in Syria, The Age and the Sydney Morn­ing Her­ald were re­hash­ing unverified re­hashed propaganda against Israel.”

He ap­pealed to Greg Hay­wood, the chair­man of Fair­fax to ex­plain why his chain gave such promi­nence to this story.

Breaking the Silence responded to the Australian critics with a defiant statement  ot its own.

The soldiers group asserted that its witnesses are telling the truth and it took jabs at armchair Diaspora Jews:

While the question of whether and to what degree Diaspora Jews should advocate their views on internal Israeli affairs is an open one, beating on Israelis of other political convictions is not.

 Lamm’s armchair Zionism pontificating from afar, while true Israelis put their lives on the line, imposes certain restraints on his engagement.

Loewenstein– who is the editor of a new volume of essays, After Zionism, to which I am also a contributor– explains the larger context of the controversy: 

The re­sponses by the Jew­ish establishment are noth­ing short of mean­ing­less in­tol­er­ance. And para­noia.

Increasingly  the reality of Is­raeli crimes are entering the mainstream and all they can do is bleat about propaganda and Is­raeli morality.

Fewer and fewer peo­ple believe this in 2012….

I thought this would be the end of the story but then this week I re­ceived an email (I’ve pub­lished it all below, reproving any rel­e­vant names) that reveals attempts by the sup­pos­edly more lib­eral wing of the Jew­ish com­mu­nity to en­cour­age peo­ple not to at­tend Is­rael/Pales­tine re­lated talks in Aus­tralia be­cause their minds must be cor­rupted.

Or some­thing. It reeks of big­otry and fear…. Zion­ism it­self is the problem here.

Here’s the beginning of the email Loewenstein published, from the liberal Zionist group Habonim Dror.

It characterizes Breaking the Silence as “sim­plis­tic and nar­row.”

Staggering denial– though note that, yes, another Jewish group was sponsoring Breaking the Silence in Australia:

———- For­warded mes­sage ———-
From: Daniel Crook 
Date: Sat, Aug 25, 2012 at 2:20 PM
Sub­ject: [mel­bogs] Please Read {01}

Tomorrow night Hashy are hosting an event where the au­di­ence will hear from two speakers, one of the speakers is Micha Kurz, who is the co-founder of a NGO in Is­rael called ‘ Breaking the Silence’.

Hearing this came at quite a shock to me and I want to highly encourage anyone thinking of going to read this email before you go and show your support.

‘ Breaking the Silence  are highly crit­i­cised for being an anti-Zion­ist and anti-Is­rael or­gan­i­sa­tion, and are also crit­i­cised for being left wing extremists…

Anti Israel sentiment is growing throughout the world, as we see on our own universities campuses, and ‘ Breaking the Silence’ are po­ten­tially fueling a lot of this opin­ion.

‘ Breaking the Silence’ rely on the use of very ex­treme examples, including in­ter­views, testimonies and imag­ing, to show and un­cover what they term the shock­ing re­al­i­ties of Is­rael and the IDF.

They are highly crit­i­cised for pro­vid­ing a non-Zion­ist and highly over-simplistic view of the is­sues at hand and pre­sent a pic­ture of IDF ac­tions against Pales­tini­ans that is com­pletely re­moved from and ig­nores the larger Is­rael-Pales­tin­ian con­flict, which as a re­sult adds in a se­ri­ous way to the world wide anti-Is­rael sen­ti­ment that af­fects our lives as Zion­ists in a se­ri­ous way.

In short, the ex­am­ples that they use to ful­fil their mis­sion are very ex­treme and are taken out of con­text, they crit­i­cise the IDF and the Is­raeli gov­ern­ment with a very one-sided agenda, and also in­clude no pro­duc­tive stance about a more pos­i­tive di­rec­tion for Is­raeli so­ci­ety.

 Israeli Official: Obama ‘Will Make Netanyahu Pay’ If Reelected

 Many Israeli officials aren’t taking the Obama administration’s signals very well

 

 

Antiwar.com

From AntiWar.com

by John Glaser, September 01, 2012

Some Israeli security officials are trying to downplay the Pentagon’s decision to significantly scale back its participation in a US-Israeli military exercise, even though it was pretty clearly meant as a signal that Washington doesn’t support Israel’s march to war with Iran.

“Israel has no idea why the Americans decided to reduce the number of troops it will send to the drill,” one security official told the Jerusalem Post.

“The ties between the US and Israeli armies are strong, and we would have known if the reduction had something to do with any tensions between Jerusalem and Washington.”

The exercise, scheduled to begin in September, will include only about 1,200 US troops, as opposed to the initially planned 5,000.

Other Israelis clearly see the move for what it is.

 “Basically what the Americans are saying is, ‘We don’t trust you,’ another senior Israeli military official told Time magazine.

“I think they don’t want to insinuate that they are preparing something together with the Israelis against Iran – that’s the message,” says Israeli analyst Efraim Inbar.

A rift has been growing between the administrations of Barack Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu over whether to launch an unprovoked war of choice against Iran for a nuclear weapons program it doesn’t even have.

“The US elections are in two months, and there is no doubt that President Barack Obama, if he is reelected, will make Netanyahu pay for his behavior,” said an Israeli security cabinet member. “It will not pass quietly.”

 Top General Dempsey Backs Away from Obama’s Threat to Intervene in Syria

Dempsey warned against the viability of creating safe zones and helping bring rebels with terrorist ties to power in Syria

 

Antiwar.com

From AntiWar.com

by John Glaser, August 30, 2012

The top general of America’s military on Thursday backed away from President Obama’s threats to intervene militarily in Syria against the Assad regime, warning that the worst-case scenario would be some kind of failed state in the embattled country.

Chairman of the Joint Chief’s of Staff General Martin Dempsey stressed while on a trip to London that direct military action in Syria, even simply no-fly zones, might be beyond the US and NATO’s capabilities and counter to their interests.

Last week President Obama warned that his “calculation” to refrain from direct military intervention in Syria “could change” if Syria’s chemical or biological weapons begin “moving around or being utilized,” describing the WMD issue as a “red line” that would prompt direct military action, like setting up safe zones, no-fly zones, or worse.

But Dempsey explained it wouldn’t be that easy.

He said frequent comparison of the Syrian situation with that in Libya, where a “no-fly zone” was imposed following a United Nations resolution, is at best a source of “amusement.”

General Dempsey warned that possible safe zones for refugees were not being considered for inside Syria, cautioning that imposing them could open the path to a breakout of war.

“If you chose to establish [a safe zone/no-fly zone] you would assume the responsibility for protecting it. If you are tasked to protect it you have to look at those who might seek to attack it or to influence it and that could take you, depending on weapons systems, it could take you to a limited no-fly zone it could take you to the point of having to interdict air and ballistic missile systems,” he said.

As far as forcibly ousting the Assad regime, Dempsey said, such a move would be far too destabilizing.

He said a failed state in Syria would be the worst-case scenario and warned against allowing armed extreme jihadists and rebels with ties to al-Qaeda to increase their influence and expand control in a post-Assad Syria.

============================================

COMMENT ON THIS STORY : 

Hmmm– publicly refused to back the Israeli government twice in one week. I wonder if Obama (under pressure from Israel) is going to have this man sacked and removed, and replaced by someone …a little more Israel-centric.

I very much appreciate Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staffs General Dempsey’s position on this: it demonstrates both logic, and conscience on this issue.

Unfortunately, however, it doesn’t affect the wild card in this equation, and that is the Israeli Government.

I would very much not be surprised if Israel pulled some kind of false flag,

to blame on Iran as a causus belli for war.~~~ Rivero of WRH.com

UN rights expert calls Israel Corrie ruling “defeat for justice”

A U.N. investigator condemned an Israeli court for clearing the military of blame for the killing of American activist crushed by an army bulldozer, calling it a “victory for impunity”. 

UN rights expert calls Israel Corrie ruling

From World Bulletin.net

World Bulletin / News Desk

A U.N. investigator condemned an Israeli court on Thursday for clearing the military of blame for the killing of American activist crushed by an army bulldozer, calling it a “victory for impunity”.

The ruling handed down on Tuesday on the civil suit brought by the family of Rachel Corrie was part of a pattern of decisions exonerating Israeli military actions and political leaders, said Richard Falk, United Nations special rapporteur on human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories.

“The judge’s decision represents a defeat for justice and accountability, and a victory for impunity for the Israeli military,” Falk said in a statement issued in Geneva.

Corrie’s family accused Israel of intentionally and unlawfully killing their 23-year-old daughter in March 2003, launching a civil case in the northern city of Haifa after a military investigation found the army was not responsible.

Corrie had joined activists trying to stop the Israeli army from demolishing Palestinian homes in the southern Gaza town of Rafah during a Palestinian uprising. The family has said it will appeal the ruling.

Judge Oded Gershon invoked a clause that absolved the army because the incident had happened during a wartime situation.

But Falk said that the decision “flies directly in the face of the Geneva Conventions, which impose on an occupying power an unconditional obligation to protect the civilian population”.

“As an aid worker, Corrie was entitled to protection by occupying forces and the house demolition appeared to violate the pact’s prohibition on targeting civilian property,” he said.

“This is a sad outcome, above all for the Corrie family … but also for the rule of law and the hope that an Israeli court would place limits on the violence of the state, particularly in relation to innocent and unarmed civilians in an occupied territory,” he said.

Falk, an American expert on international law serving as an independent U.N. expert since 2008, is a vocal critic of Israel, accusing it of crimes against humanity for its blockade of Gaza.

Falk, who is Jewish, was detained and turned back from Israel in 2008, forcing him to abort a planned mission to Gaza – a deportation denounced by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

Reflections and Warnings – An Interview With Aaron Russo (Full Version)

 

From Underground Documentaries

In an historic final interview, filmmaker and music promoter Aaron Russo goes in depth on the insider-knowledge given to him by a member of the Rockefeller family.

Russo was told– prior to 9/11– of plans to stage terror attacks, invade foreign nations, and kickstart a high-tech police state control grid that would track the populations’ every move with implantable RFID microchips. 

This information-packed presentation is filled with never-before seen footage.

Throughout the film, Alex Jones breaks down the latest activities of the New World Order and how it ties into what Russo predicted.

Aaron explains how the elite created the women’s liberation movement to break up the family and tax working women.

Russo breaks down the deception of democracy– which is nothing more than mob rule guaranteed to produce tyranny. 

Russo also exposes the IRS & Federal Reserve.

He blasts the unconstitutional and predatory institutions that have crippled the American Republic and crushed the people with bogus taxes, inflation and loss of privacy.

Russo explains that he himself was persecuted in the late 80s by a criminal ‘retroactive’ tax scheme that attempted to levy new taxes on years already passed.

As night falls on the Republic, Aaron Russo delivers a powerful call for the forces of liberty to rise and crush tyranny.

Only then can the Republic be restored.

– Never-before seen behind the scenes footage
– An exclusive interview with Aaron about his life

=======Leadership of the U.S. and Israel are traitors to their own people and a virus to the world and world peace =======

 {===================================================}

THE U.S. AND ISRAELI  CITIZENS NEED TO KNOW WHO THE TRUE TERRORIST OF THE WORLD REALLY ARE

 {XANIEL’S NOTE : Israel did not act alone on the murder of innocent citizens on 9-11.

V.P. Dick Cheney helped his Israeli Zionist Mossad friends,

[Israeli Mossad are killer spy’s much like our C.I.A., only dumber by about a 100 IQ points!

The Israeli leadership soon discovered that it was easier to just hand a Mossad agent a gun and point to the target, otherwise the agent would just fumble about picking his nose or play video games all day…hahahaha…] , 

by ordering our U.S. fighter jets to stand down when they were scrambling to get airborne to engage the threat.

How many lives could have been saved if Cheney had not order the stand down??

How many lives could have been saved if the U.S. and Israeli leadership had not decided to do 9-11 to start a war to begin with??

Cheney is just one of many traitors and murders to our Great Country and her citizens that need to be arrested at once.

Cheney played an even bigger treasonous role by helping to cover the actual 9-11 events and helped design the Official White House cover story that the,

‘ Whore Main Stream Media ‘,  gladly pushed upon the American citizens and the world, even though they knew better.

(That’s because all of the Main Stream Media is owned by the Zionist Jews)

But Cheney was not the only member of our U.S. leadership to wash his hands in the blood of those innocent  9-11 U.S. Citizens,

you can point a finger at the Bush Gangsters and their minions , as well as many in the Pentagon and C.I.A. !

Because this had been a plan invented many years earlier but never used until it’s release on 9-11,

and even then, only after  it was green lighted for approval by the Bush/Cheney gang.

But I am not saying anything that isn’t well known already.

 However, it is sad to say that there are many people in the U.S. and Israel who are still asleep and unaware of the true facts.

These people are slowly waking up and when they are finally fully awaken,

‘LORD HELP THE CRIMINAL ELITE, FOR THEY ARE GOING TO FALL FAST AND HARD ‘,

and they’ll be lucky if they aren’t killed by these same people on their way down !!}~~~Xaniel777

They did it.I have had long conversations over the past two weeks with contacts at the Army War College, at it’s headquarters, Marine Corps and I made it absolutely clear in both cases that it is 100 percent certain that 9/11 was a Mossad operation. Period.”

Dr. Alan Sabrosky – Ph.D, University of Michigan, Former Director of Studies at the Army War College

“All the intelligence services of America and Europe… know full well that the disastrous attack ( of 9/11 ) has been planned and realized from the Mossad.. with the aid of the Zionist world in order to put under accusation the Arabic countries and in order to induce the Western Powers to? take part… in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

Francesco Cossiga – the 43rd Prime Minister and the eighth President of the Italy. He was also a professor of constitutional law at the University of Sassari. (now deceased)

“For the best and bravest documentary about Israeli false flag terror, watch filmmaker Mike Delaney’s 9/11 Missing Links.”

Capt Eric May – Former Army Intelligence (with specialties in nuclear, biological and chemical warfare, military intelligence and public affairs), Staff Writer For VeteransTodays.com (He is also a former NBC editorial writer who has published widely, from Military Intelligence Magazine to The Wall Street Journal)

“Now you will discover the definitive truth about 9/11 and learn why even the most popular movies on the subject have failed to address the evidence exhaustively presented in this video.

The facts will make it abundantly clear that the so-called 9/11 “Truth” movement has been infiltrated and is ultimately controlled by the same criminal group who masterminded the attacks. As they say, ‘if you want to control the dissent, you lead the dissent.’

Utilizing evidence from the FBI, CIA, NSA, US Armed Forces Intelligence sectors, Foreign Intelligence organizations, local law enforcement agencies and independent investigators, Missing Links goes where no other 9/11 video has dared to.”

 An astounding admission from a Jewish American psychologist 

Jew admits “Holocaust” is a fraud and a PSYOP

From John Friend’s Blog

“During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.” –George Orwell

 Posted by  – July 11, 2012

Earlier today,(July 11, 2012) Carolyn Yeager posted a truly remarkable excerpt of an article titled, On the Roads of Truth: Searching for Warwick Hester by Klaus Schwensen, published in the recent edition of Inconvenient History, in which an American Jewish man admits the alleged “Holocaust” of 6 million Jews in Europe at the hands of Hitler and the NSDAP during WWII is an utter fraud.  Carolyn writes (bold and underline mine):

An astounding admission from a Jewish American psychologist is found in an article in the current (Summer 2012) issue of Inconvenient History Journal.

It’s titled “On The Roads of Truth: Searching for Warwick Hester” by Klaus Schwensen.

Schwensen tells of a certain “Warwick Hester” who (in the 1950’s) wrote “critically about the 6-million number and the Jewish death toll in what since became known as ‘the Holocaust.'”

“Warwick Hester” mentions the increase of the Jewish world population by 3 million between 1933 and 1950, which of course is in contradiction to the 6 million murdered by the Nazis.

In this connection, he tells the following story:

“Recently when talking to a North American of Jewish origin whom I esteem very much I referred to that discrepancy [of Jewish population numbers].

I asked him whether he himself believed in earnest that the Nazis had killed 6 millions.

He said:´Naturally not. For that they had neither the time nor the means. What they obviously had, was the intention.

Here begins politics [i.e.the psychology of propaganda].

Given the imputed intention, you can make any number.

We thought that 6 millions are not too much to appear plausible, but sufficient to make mankind shiver for one century.

This chance Hitler has given to us, and we make the most of it, to good effect, as you see.´

I said he ought to consider that a political lie like this will, in light of subsequent investigation, disclose itself and turn against those who invented it.

But this Jew, a psychologist, denied that. 

It [the propaganda] had penetrated too deep into the subconscious of the masses, so that it could never be dislodged. 

Humans in general are completely uncritical.

What is anchored in the subconscious, even an individual with common sense almost never is able to expunge.

As a proof he cited the fact that already now [1954!], after a relatively short propagandistic campaign, that item required no further discussion.

´We have no problem, since we have created a historical fact which from now on is in the history books of schools, like the date of a battle.´”

Truly amazing stuff here folks, the Big Lie technique of psychological manipulation and exploitation used by international Jewry to advance their supremacist agenda of world domination and subjugation admitted by a Jew himself.

 I’m reminded of Adolf Hitler’s perfect summation of this thoroughly Jewish tactic, which targets the “uncritical” masses (including Jews), playing on their psyche and emotions. 

But it remained for the Jews, with their unqualified capacity for falsehood, and their fighting comrades, the Marxists, to impute responsibility for the downfall precisely to the man who alone had shown a superhuman will and energy in his effort to prevent the catastrophe which he had foreseen and to save the nation from that hour of complete overthrow and shame.

By placing responsibility for the loss of the world war on the shoulders of Ludendorff they took away the weapon of moral right from the only adversary dangerous enough to be likely to succeed in bringing the betrayers of the Fatherland to Justice.

All this was inspired by the principle – which is quite true in itself – that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily;

and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.

 It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.

Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation.

For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.

These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes.

From time immemorial; however, the Jews have known better than any others how falsehood and calumny can be exploited.

Is not their very existence founded on one great lie, namely, that they are a religious community, whereas in reality they are a race?

And what a race!

One of the greatest thinkers that mankind has produced has branded the Jews for all time with a statement which is profoundly and exactly true.

He (Schopenhauer) called the Jew “The Great Master of Lies”.

 Those who do not realize the truth of that statement, or do not wish to believe it, will never be able to lend a hand in helping Truth to prevail.

– Adolf Hitler, quote from Mein Kampf (page 184-185)

It was also announced today that 80,000 more “Holocaust” survivors would receive compensation payments from the German government, totaling $300 million:

Germany has agreed to provide restitution payments to an additional 80,000 Jews in what Claims Conference officials are describing as a historic breakthrough.

The agreement, which was reached Monday in negotiations between German officials and Claims Conference representatives, is likely to result in additional payments of approximately $300 million.

Most of the money will go to Nazi victims in the former Soviet Union who have never before qualified for pensions or payments from German restitution money.

“This is the last group of people who have never received any compensation,” Greg Schneider, the executive vice president of the Claims Conference, told JTA in a telephone interview from Washington, where the negotiations took place.

“For people who suffered during the time of the Shoah, recognition from Germany is vital. To be able to do that at this stage, 60 years after the first restitution agreement, for 80,000 people, is tremendous,” he said. “For a survivor now in their old age to finally get acknowledgment from Germany is critically important.”

Words cannot describe how backwards and unjust of a world we are living in today.  

Jewish “Holocaust” survivors around the world (wait, I thought the Germans tried killing all the Jews?  Why are there so many survivors?) have been paid untold millions of dollars by the very people who experienced an actual holocaust during WWII: the German people.  

In a just world, the Jews would be paying reparations to the Gentile world for all the wars, death, destruction, genocide, and other atrocities and psychological manipulations they have perpetrated against us.  

The plutocratic Jewish capitalists, bankers, war-mongers and profiteers, media moguls, and overall fraudsters would be arrested immediately, stripped of their assets, and sent to Guantanamo Bay for interrogation, permanently removed from society, never to hold a position of influence over the affairs of the non-Jewish world ever again.  

One day…

Western diplomatic sources said President Barack Obama has ordered intensified U.S. intelligence on Israel’s military and government.

They said Obama wanted to ensure that his administration could collect information that would indicate an Israeli plan to strike either Iran or Syria.

“The CIA is working very closely with the State Department and other agencies to monitor Israel on a daily basis,” a diplomatic source said.

“Obama has told his people that he does not want to be surprised.”

The sources said the U.S. surveillance included satellite images of Israeli military deployment as well as unusual movements near the northern border with Lebanon.

DRONES OVER GAZA

{ XANIEL’S NOTE : And because they got those damn drones from the U.S., it makes the U.S. equally responsible for this

innocent death !

DEAR U.S. Leadership,

” STOP GIVING MONEY AND MILITARY HARDWARE TO THESE MURDERING ZIONIST BUGS!!! “ }~~~Xaniel777

================================================

From DesertPeace

They killed my only child

Mamoun Aldam

“Mum, I am scared because of the drones in the sky. There are many of them. I can hear them. I can also see a helicopter. Please hurry up and come.” Mamoun Aldam (12) made 2 such phone calls to his mother, Amna Aldam (52) on Wednesday, 20 June 2012.

At around 2:30pm, shortly after his parents arrived, Mamoun was killed by a missile fired at the family’s farmland in Al-Zeitoun area. His blind father, Mohamed Aldam (67) was also severely injured in the attack.

 On the day of the attack, Mamoun had gone to show someone the location of the farm. Amna recounts that: “We wanted to build a storage room on the farm. The person we hired did not know where our farm was, so Mamoun offered to show him. The person left after seeing the farm and Mamoun stayed behind to wait for us.”

 His parents rushed to the farm after he called.

They all sat under a tree to get some rest and shade.

They did not anticipate any attacks from the overhead drones: “We were not armed. We are civilians. The trees in the farm were recently planted, so they are still small. Anyone could see from above that we were just civilians so we did not expect to be attacked.”

 Mamoun made his parents some coffee and then started playing with his football: “He was playing about 20 meters from where we were resting and I asked him to come back. Suddenly, I heard an explosion. I saw dust, smoke and fire where Mamoun had been standing. I heard him scream once, and then he went quiet. I kept calling out for him, but he did not answer back.”

 Amna was desperately calling for her son as she rushed to where he had been playing: “There was dust everywhere and I could not see anything. When I finally saw Mamoun, he was lying on the ground and there was a lot of blood around him. His legs had been torn off. There was shrapnel all over his body. His clothes were burned and he was almost naked. He was dead.”

 Amna clearly recalls hearing other women screaming from neighboring farms as she picked up her son’s body: “I held him and took him to his father so he could touch his face and say goodbye. I found my husband bleeding heavily from his head. His left hand and right leg were also bleeding. He was touching his forehead and asking me if it was sweat. He is diabetic and has high blood pressure, so I thought he was going to die from all the bleeding. I was screaming for people to come and help us.”

 Two ambulances arrived on the farm shortly afterwards and rushed Mohamed to hospital. They also took what was left of Mamoun’s body.

Amna stayed behind: “There were pieces of my child’s body everywhere. I stayed there and started collecting the pieces and putting them in a bag. Other women came to help me.”

 In spite of his injuries, Mohamed refused to stay in hospital as he wanted to be at his son’s burial. Mamoun’s death has traumatized him: “It has been very hard for him to live without Mamoun. He is blind and Mamoun used to take him everywhere, even for his hospital appointments. He has been greatly affected and says he cannot take it anymore. Sometimes he even calls out for Mamoun, and then remembers he is gone. He feels that he will die soon without Mamoun.”

 Amna has nothing, but unanswered questions and pain.

Mamoun was her only child. She has kept the deflated red ball that Mamoun had been playing with when he was killed.

She breaks down and cries as she talks about him: “Look at that picture on the wall. He was just a small boy. I want to understand why they killed my son. Why? My Mamoun was kind to all people and animals. He never harmed anyone. He used to feed a stray cat, and even now it comes outside the house to wait for him. I remember how he used to kiss my feet and tell me ‘you are my darling, I want to keep you locked inside my heart.’ I just want to know why they took him from us.”

 The trauma has not been borne only by the Aldam family.

The children in the neighborhood have also been affected by Mamoun’s death: “Every time the children hear planes passing overhead, they run to their houses shouting and crying. Why do they kill children? What wrong have they done? Why the huge number of drones in the sky attacking innocent people? I held my Mamoun in my arms when he died and everything felt destroyed for me. I hope that is the last child to be killed in Palestine.”

 In the month of June 2012, 16 children were injured and 3 were killed, including Mamoun, during Israel’s various attacks on the Gaza Strip.

The targeting and killing of a child, a protected civilian, is a war crime, as codified in Articles 8(2)(a)(i) and 8(2)(b)(i) of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.

Turkey set to indict IDF officers over killing of Gaza flotilla activists

 

From HAARETZ

By Barak Ravid | May.23, 2012

Mavi Marmara - AP 2010

People, holding Turkish and Palestinian flags, cheering as the Mavi Marmara ship returns in Istanbul, Turkey, Sunday, Dec. 26, 2010. 

Turkey’s chief prosecutor is expected to charge retired Israeli defense officials, including former army chief Gabi Ashkenazi, for ordering the intentional killing of activists during a 2010 Israel Defense Forces raid of a Gaza-bound aid flotilla, a report said on Wednesday.

According to the Turkish daily Sabah, Ankara’s chief prosecutor Abdurrahman Yalcinkaya is due to file a 144-page indictment targeting Ashkenazi, former Military Intelligence chief Amos Yadlin, former Israel Navy chief Eliezer Maron, and former head of Israel Air force’s intelligence wing Avishai Levy over the raid on the Mavi Marmara, which resulted in the deaths of nine Turkish nationals.

The report indicated that Turkey intended to charge the former officials for ordering IDF troops to intentionally kill, wound, and abduct Turkish activists, as well as encourage their torture and loot their belongings.

Turkey issued warrants against all four former Israeli officers, and they could be arrested on arrival in Turkey, the report added.

Israel’s raid of the Gaza-bound flotilla proved a watershed moment in Israel-Turkey relations, with the once staunch allies trading blame over responsibility for the incident.

Turkey has insisted that Israel apologize for the raid and its consequences, as well as pay reparations to the families of those killed; Israel has, thus far, refused to do so.

Sabah’s reporter Ibrahim Ayral said Wednesday that Yalcinkaya is expected to submit the indictment to Istanbul’s district prosecutor, who would then have to approve it and hand it over to the courts.

Despite the fact that the indictment is still officially pending, the report claimed that Turkey’s chief prosecutor indents to demand that  ten consecutive life sentences be handed down to each of the named Israeli ex-officers.

Furthermore, the report claims that the expected indictment also includes sections that have no direct link to the charged officers, including historical references to the link between Turkey and Spanish Jews in the fifteenth century, as well as between Turkey and German Jewry during the Second World War.

Another part of the document will provide Turkey’s response to claims made against the country by an Israeli investigative panel on the Mavi Marmara raid, headed by former Supreme Court justice Jacob Turkel.

The indictment, the Sabah report said, was complied following the hearing of 600 testimonies, including 490 of the Marmara’s passengers as well as family members of those killed in the raid.

Earlier this month, a report in Turkey’s Today’s Zaman newspaper claimed that Turkish prosecutors have completed their investigation of the IDF’s 2010 raid, citing Turkey’s justice minister.

According to the Turkey Today’s Zaman report, Turkish Justice Minister Sadullah Ergin said that his ministry had requested information from the Foreign Ministry on IDF soldiers to be included in an indictment related to the raid.

Following the raid, Israel established the Turkel Committee to conduct an investigation.

The first part of the Turkel Committee’s report determined that Israel’s takeover of the flotilla had been legal in terms of international law, but criticized the IDF’s preparation in advance of the arrival of flotilla as well as the operation itself.

The UN Palmer Report on the Gaza flotilla raid found that the IDF soldiers acted in self-defense, but used excessive force.

The report also found Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza to be legal under international law.

Facebook…I Can’t Believe You Fell for It…Again

 

From the Trenches

May 24, 2012 by Henry Shivley


Beginning in the fall of 2011, the international elite started pumping the US stock market up, in an attempt to get those Americans who still had a little money in the bank, to invest. 

They saw $15 trillion in private savings and 401K retirement accounts, just waiting to be stolen. 

They would pump a few billion dollars in, coupled with a propaganda campaign saying “strong recovery” and the stock market would shoot up by a couple hundred points.

Then when they saw no one was biting, they would pull their money out, the stock market would fall, and they would start devising a new scheme. 

This is when they realized that those Americans who still had money left were not going to be so easily fooled.

So the next plan would have to move slower in order to convince their marks that the recovery was real this time.

  So they slowly fed tens of billions of dollars in and put forth the propaganda designed to create the illusion. 

All of the sudden it was starting to look like a modest recovery with modest gains on the market. 

And still the investors were very cautious.

But there had to be a way to sucker the suckers in.  Then came Facebook. 

The corporate owned media hyped Facebook from every angle.  And then came the public offer. 

Of course the media created a scenario wherein just a handful of ultra elitist rich were going to make a mint off the deal and the average Joe was not going to be allowed to participate. 

And then they said, maybe just a few lucky small timers will be let in on the deal.

They felt the pole bend in their hand as millions of regular folk were on the phone with their stock brokers, trying to get a piece of the action. 

The stock brokers, they played the game oh so coy, telling their marks, “I might can get my hands on some shares, but we are going to have to put in a good portion of your portfolioin order to seal the deal.”

Then came the big day and BAM, billions were transferred from private savings accounts and 401Ks, directly into the accounts of the international banksters that orchestrated the con. 

Now we are watching the stock market fall as the seed money is being retrieved.

I can’t believe you people fell for it again, but you can’t say we didn’t warn you. 

Now to those of you who still have something left, a little free advice, from someone who will tell you right out the gate, I don’t like you as I am sick of livingwith the consequences of your stupidity. 

But if you have any intelligence you will transfer all your wealth into gold and silver and other precious metals. 

This will save you, not that you deserve to be saved, and not that I wouldn’t like to see you completely destroyed.

You see my motives are selfish. 

This economy is going down hard and after we have taken our country back and restored our Republic under our Constitution we are going to need as much gold, silver, and other precious metals in our country as is possible to start a new currency system. 

This will have to hold us over while we are recovering our wealth.

This will be a short term benefit to you. 

I say short term because we will be examining the records to see how you managed to thrive while the rest of us were being dispossessed. 

If you came by your wealth honestly, you have nothing to fear. 

If not we are going to take it away from you and deport you as punishment.

But look at it this way.  At least with us you get to keep it a while longer, that is if you do not fall for another scam like Facebook in the meantime, dummies.

God bless this Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we shall prevail.

Blatant Corruption Exposed as EU Blocks France’s Ban on Monsanto’s GMO Maize

 

From Activist Post

May 24, 2012

Anthony Gucciardi
Activist Post

Just after France legislators and officials moved to ban Monsanto’s genetically modified strain of GMO maize over environmental and health concerns, the European Union has decided to step in and re-secure Monsanto’s presence in the country — against the very will of the nation itself.

This should come as no surprise when considering the fact that the United States ambassador to France, a business partner to George W. Bush, stated back in 2007 that nations who did not accept Monsanto’s GMO crops will be ‘penalized’.

In fact, ambassador Craig Stapleton went as far as to say that the nations should be threatened with military-style trade wars.

That’s right, it appears the reason for the unprecedented move to maintain Monsanto’s deeply-rooted foothold in France has to do with the fact that the United States and other nations are continually pushing Monsanto’s agenda — even going as far as to threaten military-style trade wars to those who oppose the company.

As I reported back in January, WikiLeaks cables surfaced revealing some startling information concerning Monsanto’s deep involvement with back-end politics.

One of the most telling details involves a statement made by Craig Stapleton, in which he said:

Country team Paris recommends that we calibrate a target retaliation list that causes some pain across the EU since this is a collective responsibility, but that also focuses in part on the worst culprits. The list should be measured rather than vicious and must be sustainable over the long term, since we should not expect an early victory. Moving to retaliation will make clear that the current path has real costs to EU interests and could help strengthen European pro-biotech voices.

And that is not even the most shocking part.

WikiLeaks cables go on to state that United States diplomats actually work directly for Monsanto, furthering the agenda of the company across the globe.

Is it any wonder that France is being assaulted by the EU over its decision to secure the health of its citizens?

It becomes even more obvious when examining the ridiculous reasoning as to why the EU had to step in and block France’s in-house legislation.

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) rejected the ban on the grounds that “there is no scientific evidence” that shows “risk to human and animal health or the environment.”

Of course there is an overwhelming amount of research showing that Monsanto’s creations do in fact threaten not only human health, but the planet as a whole.

Even the EPA has warned over the fact that Monsanto’s GMO crops are spawning “mutant” resistant insects and subsequently requiring substantially more pesticides.

Consumers are waking up to Monsanto’s agenda and the dangers associated with their modified creations.

Over 45,000 comments were submitted on the USDA website in opposition to Monsanto’s new genetically modified strain, and only 23 in favor.

The corruption of Monsanto is now out in the open, and only serves to show how deeply rooted the company is within the United States government.

How To Communicate If The US Govt Shuts Down The Internet

 

From Alexander Higgins Blog

Alexander Higgins

 Posted by  – May 22, 2012 

A list of ways to stay connected to the outside world, which could become a life and death issue, in the event access to the internet is shut down.

Editor’s Note: Beyond the government shutting down the Internet, many more events can cut off internet access to millions such as natural disasters and cyber attacks. In such situations, being able to communicate with the outside world could become a matter of life and death. For that reason, be sure to print this out and save a hard copy because if your Internet does go down you are not going to be able to access this story.

Scenario

Your government is displeased with the communication going on in your location and pulls the plug on your internet access, most likely by telling the major ISPs to turn off service.

This is what happened in Egypt Jan. 25 prompted by citizen protests, with sources estimating that the Egyptian government cut off approximately 88 percent of the country’s internet access.

What do you do without internet?

Step 1: Stop crying in the corner. Then start taking steps to reconnect with your network.

Here’s a list of things you can do to keep the communication flowing.

PREVENTIVE MEASURES:

MAKE YOUR NETWORK TANGIBLE

Print out your contact list, so your phone numbers aren’t stuck in the cloud. Some mail services like Gmail allow you to export your online contact list in formats that are more conducive to paper, such as CSV or Vcard, and offer step-by-step guides on how to do this.

BROADCAST ON THE RADIO:

CB Radio: Short for “Citizens Band” radio, these two-way radios allow communication over short distances on 40 channels.

You can pick one up for about $20 to $50 at Radio Shack, and no license is required to operate it.

Ham radio: To converse over these radios, also known as “amateur radios,” you have to obtain an operator’s license from the FCC.

Luckily, other Wired How-To contributors have already explained exactly what you need to do to get one and use it like a pro.

However, if the President declares a State of Emergency, use of the radio could be extremely restricted or prohibited.

GMRS: The General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS) is a licensed land-mobile FM UHF radio service in the United States available for short-distance two-way communication.

It is intended for use by an adult individual who possesses a valid GMRS license, as well as his or her immediate family members… They are more expensive than the walkie talkies typically found in discount electronics stores, but are higher quality.

Family Radio Service: The Family Radio Service (FRS) is an improved walkie talkie radio system authorized in the United States since 1996.

This personal radio service uses channelized frequencies in the ultra high frequency (UHF) band.

It does not suffer the interference effects found on citizens’ band (CB) at 27 MHz, or the 49 MHz band also used by cordless phones, toys, and baby monitors.

Microbroadcasting: Microbroadcasting is the process of broadcasting a message to a relatively small audience.

This is not to be confused with low-power broadcasting. In radio terms, it is the use of low-power transmitters to broadcast a radio signal over the space of a neighborhood or small town.

Similarly to pirate radio, microbroadcasters generally operate without a license from the local regulation body, but sacrifice range in favor of using legal power limits.

Packet Radio Back to the ’90s: There do exist shortwave packet-radio modems.

These are also excruciatingly slow, but may get your e-mail out. Like ham radio above it requires a ham radio license because they operate on ham radio frequencies.

TELEPHONE:

Set up a phone tree: According to the American Association of University Women, a phone tree is “a prearranged, pyramid-shaped system for activating a group of people by telephone” that can “spread a brief message quickly and efficiently to a large number of people.” Dig out that contact list you printed out to spread the message down your pyramid of contacts.

Enable Twitter via SMS: Though the thought of unleashing the Twitter fire hose in your text message inbox may seem horrifying, it would be better than not being able to connect to the outside world at all.

The Twitter website has full instructions on how to redirect tweets to your phone.

Call to Tweet: A small team of engineers from Twitter, Google and SayNow, a company Google acquired recently, made this idea a reality.

It’s already live and anyone can tweet by simply leaving a voicemail on one of these international phone numbers ( +16504194196 or +390662207294 or +97316199855 ) and the service will instantly tweet the message using the hashtag #egypt.

No Internet connection is required.

People can listen to the messages by dialing the same phone numbers or going to the Twitter account, speak2tweet.

FAX:

If you need to quickly send and receive documents with lengthy or complex instructions, phone conversations may result in misunderstandings, and delivering the doc by foot would take forever.

Brush the dust off that bulky old machine, establish a connection by phone first with the recipient to make sure his machine is hooked up, then fax away.

You may not need a fax machine to send or receive faxes if your computer has a dial-up fax application.

NON-VIRTUAL BULLETIN BOARD

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the virtual world that we forget about resources available in the real world.

Physical bulletin boards have been used for centuries to disseminate information and don’t require electricity to function.

If you are fortunate enough to be getting information from some other source why not share it with your friends and neighbors with your own bulletin board?

Cork, magnetic and marker bulletin boards are as close as your nearest dime store and can be mounted just about anywhere. And if push comes to shove you can easily make your own with scrap wood lying around the house.

Getting back online: While it might be relatively easy for a government to cut connections by leveraging the major ISPs, there are some places they wouldn’t get to so readily, like privately-owned networks and independent ISPs.

FIND THE PRIVATELY RUN ISPs

In densely populated areas, especially in central business districts and city suburbs there are multiple home WiFi networks overlapping each other, some secure, some not.

If there is no internet, open up your WiFi by removing password protection: If enough people do this it’s feasible to create a totally private WiFi service outside government control covering the CBD, and you can use applications that run Bonjour (iChat on Mac for example) to communicate with others on the open network and send and receive documents. **needs more clarification

If you are a private ISP, it’s your time to shine. Consider allowing open access to your Wi-Fi routers to facilitate communication of people around you until the grid is back online.

RETURN TO DIAL-UP

According to an article in the BBC about old tech’s role in the Egyptian protests, “Dial-up modems are one of the most popular routes for Egyptians to get back online. Long lists of international numbers that connect to dial-up modems are circulating in Egypt thanks to net activists We Re-Build, Telecomix and others.”

Dial-up can be slow. Often, there is a lightweight mobile version of a site that you can load from your desktop browser quickly despite the limitations of dial-up. Examples: mobile.twitter.com, m.facebook.com, m.gmail.com.

AD-HOC NETWORKING

Most wireless routers, PCs, laptops, and even some ultramobile devices like cellphones have the ability to become part of an “ad hoc” network, where different “nodes” (all of the devices on the network) share the responsibility of transmitting data with one another.

These networks can become quite large, and are often very easy to set up.

If used properly by a tech-savvy person, such networks can be used to host temporary websites and chat rooms.

There are many internet tutorials on the internet for ad hoc networking, so feel free to google some.

Apple computers tend to have very accessible ad hoc functionality built in, including a pre-installed chat client (iChat) that will automatically set up an ad hoc “Rendezvous” chatroom among anybody on the network, without the need for an external service like AIM or Skype. Ad hoc network-hosting functionality is built in to the Wi-Fi menu.

Windows computers have several third-party ad hoc chat applications available (such as Trillian) and setting up an ad hoc Wi-Fi network is almost as simple as on a Mac.

Linux operating systems, of course, have plenty of third-party apps available, and most distros have ad hoc network-creation support built in.

BUILD LARGE BRIDGED WIRELESS NETWORK

Using popular wireless access point devices like a Linksys WRT54G, you can create a huge wireless bridged network — effectively creating a Local Area Network (LAN), or a private Internet that can be utilized by all users within range using a Wi-Fi enabled device.

You can also link multiple devices together wirelessly, extending the range of your network.

Most access points will cover a 100 meter area and if your wireless device is built to support the 802.11n wireless standard, you will get almost a 500 meter coverage area for each access point.

To build a wireless bridge, check out the dd-wrt wiki, and learn how to configure Linksys WRT54G as a wireless client using this Anandtech thread.

NINTENDO DS

A used DS family device can be purchased inexpensively. In addition to wi-fi, the DS supports its own wireless protocols. Using Pictochat, it is possible to chat with nearby DS users without having any DS games.

Unfortunately, the range is quite short.

Some games, such as the fourth generation Pokemon games, support mail items.

Thus you can send your message under the guise of just playing a game.

Mail items can be sent through the Internet if you can get on the net and you and your partner(s) have each other’s friend codes.

The original DS and the DS Lite do support the Opera web browser, but finding the game card and memory pack may be very difficult. Starting with the DSi, Opera is downloadable.

INTRANET

Your computer has the ability to set up your own INTRANET. This was done BEFORE the internet was popularized in two ways: Your computer dialed up other computers and sent them the contents of a message board, or local people people dialed into your computer.

A nationwide system can be set up this way with a central location sending to many cities then each city sending out the info locally.

BECOME UNTRACEABLE

If you’re going to post government secrets on your work-around site, you may want to set up an untraceable account.

Really, you only need a mail drop, an assumed name, a prepaid credit card you can get at many stores to set up service.

GET SATELLITE ACCESS

You can have very, very slow internet if you have something similiar to an Iridium phone, which would allow you to do dial up at 2400 baud, which at least gives you e-mail.

This will also work when your government has shut down GSM and telephone access, and will work pretty much anywhere on the planet.

If you’re in the right place, get yourself KA-SAT access which is satellite broadband and will not be routed through any internet exchange that certain local governments may monitor or block (unless that government is part of EU or er … Uncle Sam.)

BACK TO BASICS

Make some noise: Have an air horn or other loud instrument handy.

It may just come down to being able to alert people in your local geographic area, who would otherwise be unaware of an emergency.

You may also want to learn a bit about Morse code and have a cheat sheet available.

 Fake Truth for Our Own Good? WHAT IS TRUTH? 

From American’s Journey

by Jack Rabbit

What is truth? One of the philosopher’s oldest questions indeed. Zeno, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle – an endless list of those attempting to define this surprisingly elusive concept. Zeno presented paradoxes – most lost – which brought into question our very ability to perceive our world.

He showed that contradictions exist between our observed world and the logical world. For example Zeno’s “Flying Arrow” paradox states “That it is impossible for a thing to be moving during a period of time, because it is impossible for it to be moving at an indivisible instant.” (From p.4 “Zeno’s Paradox” by Joseph Mazur, penguin)

I visualize this paradox as a high-speed photograph of an arrow, in which, the arrow appears to be motionless. Continuing p. 5:

“The flying-arrow paradox concludes that motion is impossible. Zeno pictures an arrow in flight and considers it frozen at a single point in time. He argues that the arrow must be stationary at
that instant, and if it is stationary at that instant then it is stationary at any – and – every instant. Therefore, it does not move at all.”

We can also learn from Heisenberg’s uncertainty theory: 

“According to quantum mechanics, the more precisely the position (momentum) of a particle is given, the less precisely can one say what its momentum (position) is.” To visualize this I picture 
someone blindfolded at a billiard table armed with a cue ball. On the table is an eight-ball. The blindfolded person rolls the cueball across the table, striking the eight-ball, thereby finding it, but 
in the process moving it from its original location. Perhaps this is a weak analogy…wait – what am I getting at?

My point is that our world, even for science is so mysterious that we may never be able to nail down reality. In fact according to Aristotle everything we know is unscientific anyway because scientific observation is rooted in inductively derived observations, taken as givens by what he called “intuition.” So what?

IF WE CANNOT ABSOLUTELY DEFINE TRUTH WHAT SHOULD WE DO?

Modern man relies on the “SCIENTIFIC METHOD” as our definitive truth-
testing tool. Here is a nice illustration:
Flow Chart for The Scientific Method

So we use the scientific method to evaluate evidence for our best possible description of reality, or truth. So it’s that simple right? Well…

SCIENCE IS AS UNBIASED AS IT GETS – NOW ADD…HOMO SAPIENS

In his book Public Opinion, Walter Lippmann discusses the “… insertion between man and his environment of a pseudo-environment. To that pseudo-environment his behavior is a response.
But because it is behavior, the consequences, if they are acts, operate not in the pseudo-environment where the behavior is stimulated, but in the real environment where action eventuates. … at the level of social life, what is called the adjustment of man to his environment takes place through the medium of fictions. By fictions I do not mean lies. I mean a representation of the environment which is in lesser or greater degree made by man himself.”

He continues … “For the real environment is altogether too big, too complex, and too fleeting for direct acquaintance. …we have to reconstruct it on a simpler model before we can manage with it.” Essentially, in my view, Lippmann described the dumbing down, repackaging, and presentation of a reality by an elite group to the masses. A top-down management of the masses via a controlled media.

The fake reality fed to the public for its own good would be designed to produce a desired reaction from the masses to allow the elites to do what is best for the public. But isn’t this just academic mumbo-jumbo? We live in a Republic, we elect our leaders. There’s no conspiracy going on to manipulate the public is there? Well…

INFORMATION WAR IS REAL. 

Consider (CLICK) This document examining practical considerations concerning disinformation in an adversarial environment. Or perhaps you will find (CLICK) this document and (CLICK) others here as proof that information war is a reality TODAY

Since our Government and Military are information warfare experts would it be too much of a stretch to assume that they would employ this powerful tool? I think it is reasonable to answer “YES”

INFORMATION WARFARE REQUIRES MEDIA COLLUSION- BUT WHO CONTROLS THE MEDIA? 

Without control of the media, information warfare can be neutralized by the free exchange of ideas – especially on the internet. THE INTERNET MUST REMAIN FREE – PERIOD. Our U.S. Constitution was designed to handle the “problems” propagandists like Lippmann saw with the seemingly stupid masses.

We have three branches of government, one being a bicameral Congress. Add the electoral college. There are many “safeguards” in place, we are repeatedly told, to “protect” us from the tyranny of the masses.

We have a FIRST AMENDMENT protecting freedom of speech and the press. Are we, expected, fellow citizens, to act like little children and listen to our elite “masters?” Are we to believe that our government is free from the overwhelming influence of powerful and influential Self-appointed apostles who would lead us to possible ruin? 

IT IS TIME TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK

“Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?”
“A Republic, if you can keep it.” Dr. Ben Franklin was one of our wisest founding fathers. Who in our federal government is qualified to feed a citizen of Franklin’s genius fake information for “his own good?” Please, my fellow citizens, please get involved in your own way – let’s TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK!

The Zionist State Of Amerika

Posted by poorrichard at Poor Richard’s Blog

By Jim Kirwan

11-11-11

via rense

Everything comes to an end eventually, and this day is probably the beginning of that end for America.

 
 

 

 

The pieces of this global jigsaw puzzle are still moving, barely. But the configurations for the world are nearly all in place. This last huge gambit by the forces of Global-disorder is almost ready for the final act in this global tragedy. And the stage-hands backstage, are just waiting for the call that will raise the curtain on the formal beginnings of World War III.

 

A huge amount of education has been completed over the last ten years during which a lot of people have been writing and drawing and commenting on the hidden histories behind these trogledian affairs, including me. Here’s just one small part of the actual information that too many either haven’t been aware of, or they have forgotten just how Iran came to be in the crosshairs: Again! (1)

 

Beyond this one example, there are literally hundreds of thousands of documents that have outlined just how this nation has finally become

 

THE ZIONIST STATE OF AMERIKA

 

Foremost among the things that the public has finally become aware of is the fact that

“They don’t hate us because of our freedoms, they hate us because every day we are funding and committing crimes against humanity. The so-called War on Terror is a cover for our military aggression to gain control of the resources of Western Asia. This is sending the poor of this country to kill the poor of those Muslim countries. This is trading blood for oil, this is genocide and for most of the world we ARE the Terrorists” (2)

 

Bankers have now replaced political figureheads in both Greece and Italy; who will of course try to ram the blood-drenched policies of the already disgraced ‘AUSTERITY’ programs down the throats of the captured populations of both Italy and Greece. This will not work either, because it goes against every principle of life and economics and cannot ever work, anywhere! For the criminal-forces of this failing takeover attempt, this amounts to their last straw because Italy and Greece will follow in the footsteps of the now bankrupted MF Global-with many other Western “institutions” that will fail as well: Some far more spectacularly than others. But FAIL THEY WILL, because they cannot actually succeed in crushing the whole world just to pacify the dehumanized criminals at the top of the New World Order and the Zionists-International that has been reaching for the completion of this global crime for the last 88 years, without mercy.

 

I don’t profess to ‘know’ when exactly this global-nightmare shall begin by raising the curtain on WWIII: but it has become clear to many of us that there is now almost no other way to end the barbarity of this global crime.

 

The thugs in uniform, in most Amerikan cities now, are pushing very hard for the people they are wounding, and shooting to begin fighting back; because Zionist Amerika wants us to become violent; they need the excuse to begin their hostile takeover in the open with real bullets for anyone that opposes them. I know how tempting it is to just smash the faces of these uniformed-cowards that raid sleeping camps of protestors in the middle of the night, to fondle the women and beat the men repeatedly even though they are the only ones who are armed and dangerous to anyone other than their co-conspirators, in these vastly increasing crimes against the public. But ‘IF’ they unleash real bullets and real firepower against the veterans and the public in the streets that will trigger the hundreds of millions of gun-owners to respond in kind and that will finish this place as a nation and as a survivable place in which anyone will be able to live for decades, if not for centuries.

 

There is only one-other-way, but the public still seems to resist the last real chance to avoid Armageddon. All that Americans have to do is to move their money out of the remaining big banks-every last cent of your money needs to be anywhere else; except inside those banks! If the public could do this: Then at least there would be a real chance to end the FEDERAL RESERVE and its entire DEBT-based CRIMINAL SYSTEM by which we have all been captured. Without those banks the FED would have to collapse, and the other eleven Banks in that World Wide System would also immediately be threatened by the FED’s collapse.

 

What is preventing this is some holdover belief that the political system is this county can recover: NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH. That political system was designed as a broken system that can never work when it really counts-and that time is NOW! Congress has been reduced from 535 members to 12, plus the TRAITOR in the Oval Office. The Courts are totally compromised and the administration answers to Israel and never to the American people: Hence the new name which is the only valid title for this place now:

 

THE ZIONIST STATE OF AMERIKA

 

We are living in one the most transitional moments in all of history, right now. And what we do in the next few days will affect the next ten generations directly, if that is, there are to be any next generations, anywhere. And for the record: If these non-humans have their way with us this time, there will not be a future, so there won’t be any future generations to have to suffer for what we did not prevent. . .

 

Ironically this time the world will try to have it both ways. It will end with both a whimper and a bang. The whimpering will come from those that refuse to let-go of their addictions to whatever; and ‘the bang’ will be the sounds of the nuclear missiles landing on nations and people all over the planet, and not just in the Middle-East.

 

This is apparently what 11-11-11 is all about, and it looks a lot like a final warning to the tens-of-thousands of us that routinely monitor this cesspool that was once our world!

Hold the line: Stop ‘copyright rendition’

From Al Jazeera 

A US law challenged in the Supreme Court could remove hundreds of thousands of artistic works from the public domain.

By 
Lewis Hyde

Many works by non-US artists, such as Alfred Hitchcock, may soon be removed from the public domain [GALLO/GETTY]

GAMBIER, OHIO – In 1948, Twentieth-Century Fox released one of the Cold War’s first anti-communist films, Iron Curtain, the soundtrack of which featured music by Russian composer Dimitri Shostakovich. Shostakovich himself probably never saw the film, so it was presumably under orders from the Stalin regime that his name soon appeared on a copyright infringement suit filed in the US. Had the suit succeeded, it would have effectively prevented moviegoers in the US from seeing Iron Curtain. But it did not succeed: Shostakovich’s music then lay in our public domain, and once there, its rights holders had no say in how it could be used.

The public domain is a valuable guarantor of both free trade and free expression, which is why there is much at stake in Golan v. Holder, a case recently argued before the Supreme Court (the court’s opinion has yet to be announced). The plaintiffs in Golan are challenging a 1994 law that will remove hundreds of thousands of works from the public domain by allowing foreign authors to revive their copyrights. Lawyers call this “copyright restoration”, but it might better be called “copyright rendition”: Congress has taken work that once lived freely among us and returned it to foreign masters.

The plaintiffs in Golan include orchestra conductors, educators, performers and film archivists who have relied on a stable, clearly-defined public domain for both business and creative practice. Now they can’t. Low-budget orchestras that once offered Prokofiev, Stravinsky and Shostakovich can no longer do so; distributors that listed the early films of Federico Fellini, Fritz Lang, and Alfred Hitchcock have had to delete them from their catalogues; bookstores that offered cheap editions of Joseph Conrad, George Orwell, HG Wells and Virginia Woolf no longer stock them.

The public’s unfettered use of such works is not the only thing that congress has compromised. Important freedoms are threatened as well. Copyright law, in its earliest days, was designed not just to give authors their due but also to assure public access to what had previously been a decidedly unfree press. When printing first arose in Europe it was almost always controlled by the state. In seventeenth-century England, for example, licencing laws stood in the way of all supposedly offensive books, and the Crown gave publishing monopolies to favoured printers who then dutifully provided a second ring of censorship.

This system began to break down late in the century under pressure from Protestant intellectuals. In 1694, when a new licencing act was being debated in Parliament, John Locke wrote to oppose both the act and the Crown monopolies. These together, he complained, destroyed the free market in books and were thus injurious to learning. Absent any competition, printing in London was “very bad and yet… very dear”, controlled by “a lazy, ignorant” press that did little more than assure the Mother Church that she’d never be “disturbed in her opinions”.

Locke never questioned the idea that publishers should have copyrights; he worried rather about their longevity. It certainly made no sense for any printer to have a corner on the work of Cicero, say, written a good 1,700 years ago. As for the publishers of modern authors, Locke proposed that the law “limit their property to a certain number of years after the death of the author, or the first printing of the book, as, suppose, fifty or seventy years”.

Distaste for monopolies

The founding generation in the US was the direct heir of this British distaste for print monopolies. As the US constitution was being written, Thomas Jefferson wrote James Madison to say that the Bill of Rights ought to forbid “even… limited monopolies” outright, their benefit being “too doubtful to be opposed to that of their general suppression”.

During the 2008 Presidential campaign, Fox News demanded that John McCain remove his YouTube commercials because they infringed Fox’s copyrights.

Madison disagreed but even so, when revisiting the subject late in life, he advised that “Monopolies… ought to be granted with caution, and guarded with strictness against abuse”. Noting that the constitution had in fact allowed them for “the authors of Books and of useful inventions”, he nonetheless underscored the constitution’s demand that the grant be “limited”. “A temporary monopoly… ought to be temporary … Perpetual monopolies of every sort are forbidden… by the genius of free Governments”.

Since its beginnings both here and abroad, then, copyright law has always limited the privileges it settles on authors. By so doing, it simultaneously secures two good but potentially conflicting ends. Most obvious and commendable, authors get ownership of their work and thus entry into the market and freedom from patronage. Less obvious, perhaps, but equally commendable, the limit on ownership gives birth to the public domain, that vast realm of expression to which we all have equal access.

“The ancients,” wrote Henry Fielding, “may be considered as a rich Common, where every Person who hath the smallest tenement in Parnassus hath a free right to fatten his Muse”. Limited-term copyright smartly enlarges that common so that all Muses may browse closer to us in time. It gives “we the people” fuller access to our inheritance.

That said, cases still arise in which the conflict between private control and public access must be revisited. How it will be settled in the current instance we cannot know, though it should be noted that the US supreme court has regularly taken the side of access. “The primary goal of copyright is not to reward authors,” Justice Sandra Day O’Connor once wrote, but rather to promote the progress of knowledge. Justice William Rehnquist made a similar point in words echoing Jefferson and Madison: “We have often recognised the monopoly privileges that Congress has authorised… are limited in nature and must ultimately serve the public good…”

Congress has not typically shared that recognition, invariably extending existing monopolies when petitioned by rights holders. The law being challenged in Golan was largely the fruit of lobbying by US copyright-based industries. Software, film, television, movie and recording companies petitioned congress with the long-term goal of getting other nations (Russia and Thailand are often mentioned) to restore the copyrights of US works that had fallen into the public domain abroad. Having no control over foreign law, however, the somewhat wishful strategy was to restore the copyrights of foreign authors in this country, in hopes that other nations would reciprocate.

Stifling debate

In giving these industries what they wanted, the US congress not only unsettled established business and creative practices, it revived the problem that Locke and our founders worried about centuries ago, for it is ever the case that monopolies can as easily be used to suppress as to encourage both speech and trade.

To give just a few of many recent examples: During the 2008 Presidential campaign, Fox News demanded that John McCain remove his YouTube commercials because they infringed Fox’s copyrights; the estate of poet Countee Cullen refused to let Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky use Cullen’s work in a documentary after learning that the context hinted at Cullen’s homosexuality; the Church of Scientology has regularly sought to silence critics with claims that they infringe on the Church’s copyrights, as when they sued the Washington Post in 1995 for quoting Church documents.

Congress managed to do what Stalin never could.”

It is true that in such cases, copyright’s “fair use doctrine” offers a way for users to defend themselves, and fair use should certainly be more widely claimed. At the same time, few speakers have the time or money to engage in litigation. A recent fair use case brought against the estate of James Joyce took years to resolve and cost almost a quarter of a million dollars. Even when a use is patently fair, most speakers will fall silent when threatened with a lawsuit.

Unless, of course, what they use lies in the public domain. Fair use, the Supreme Court has said, is one of the “traditional First Amendment safeguards”; so it is, but the strongest safeguard of all is the bright line drawn by the limited term. That bright line, moreover, was originally drawn to harmonise with several others.

Samuel Johnson’s 1755 Dictionary, the one that the Founders would have known, illustrates its definition of “limited” with the phrase “limited monarchy”, and, in so doing, reminds us that limiting monopolies was a key way in which British jurists checked the powers of their king. Transported to the American context, then, the limit of copyright should be understood as one way in which the framers checked the powers of congress and squared copyright with the First Amendment’s prohibition on laws “abridging the freedom of speech”.

Which brings us back to that 1948 movie. If you teach the Cold War, and hope to show Iron Curtain to your students, good luck. As one unintended consequence of copyright rendition, that film has now disappeared from domestic distribution. Congress managed to do what Stalin never could. The limits the founders built into copyright were meant not only to engender a public domain but, by the same token, to curb congress’ power to do favours for its friends and to soften the fact that expressive monopolies are easily abused. “Limited monarch”, “limited times”, “limited powers”: By such phrases do we nominate the constraints that are the preconditions of liberty.

Rogue Israeli Lawlessness

from Bob Tuskin.com

by Stephen Lendman

Endless examples occur daily. Overnight Sunday, Maan News said Israeli forces raided homes of seven recently released prisoners as part of the October 18 exchange.

Notices were sent to Akram Mansour, Shadi Zayid and Ibrahim Yasin. They were ordered to report to Israeli intelligence for questioning.

In August 1979, Mansour was imprisoned for life. Before release, he participated in hunger strikes against harsh conditions for relief. Brain cancer’s slowly killing him.

Nael and Fakhri Barghouthi’s homes were also raided. Interrogation orders followed. Before release, Nael was Israel’s longest serving Palestinian prisoner, held since April 1978 for alleged involvement in armed resistance. Israel criminalized his heroism.

Others affected included Adnan Zeid al-Kilani, Sumad Karaja, and Latuifa Abu Thiraa. Latuifa formerly was detained.

Since June 1967, up to 700,000 Palestinians were imprisoned for wanting to live free in their own country on their own land in peace. Israel calls legitimate resistance terrorism.

Anyone accused without evidence can be detained indefinitely, including harsh isolation for months or years to break them.

Maan also said Israel continues to withhold Palestinian Authority (PA) tax revenue transfers. After accepting full UNESCO membership, they were blocked. About $100 million monthly is involved. They’re vital funds PA officials need to operate, including to pay salaries to 150,000 employees.

PLO official Saeb Erekat described Israel’s “blackmailing, bullying and stealing” Palestinian money. Israeli Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz insisted on withholding funds as punishment for joining UNESCO and concluding (an unfulfilled) reconciliation agreement with Hamas.

Over the weekend, Palestinian sources said Israeli soldiers clashed with dozens of Palestinians in Silwan in East Jerusalem. Tear gas canisters and concussion grenades were fired directly at protesters. Area homes were affected. Mahmoud Atiyya was kidnapped. No injuries were reported.

On November 12, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said settler attacks rose 40% in 2011 compared to 2010. Dozens of injuries and extensive property damage resulted.

Three Palestinians were killed, another 167 injured, and 127 more displaced. Over 10,000 olive trees were uprooted, damaged or destroyed. Settlers operate lawlessly with impunity. Even murder’s rarely punished.

On November 14, a Haaretz editorial headlined, “Israeli leaders choosing personal interests over law,” saying:

Government officials and prosecutors collaborate “with thieves and lawbreakers.” Rather than protecting Palestinian landowner rights, state attorneys continue foot-dragging on issues relating to lawlessly seized land.

“This time, they asked the High Court to delay razing (illegal) structures for no less than 14 months.” MKs and Netanyahu also want evacuating Givat Assaf built on private Palestinian land delayed, even though Justices ordered the outpost vacated by yearend. At the same time, Netanyahu wants lawless outposts legalized.

MKs will consider another bill to restrict human rights groups like Peace Now and Yesh Din. They and others help Palestinians regain stolen property. The Knesset’s Ministerial Committee for Legislation approved the measure Sunday.

“(T)he government’s behavior with regard to the outposts, particularly those erected on privately owned land, demonstrates that a small group of criminals can terrorize Israel’s elected public officials.”

Worse still, political self-interest “ridicule(s) High Court” decisions, ignores rule of law issues, justice, and Israel’s national interests.

On November 14, Haaretz headlined, “Netanyahu’s ‘draconian laws’ are attack on Israeli democracy, say MKs,” saying:

As MKs readied to vote on controversial laws, some “from both the opposition and the governing coalition have voiced strong criticism,” calling them draconian and undemocratic.

Opposition leader Tzipi Livni said:

“We will fight Netanyahu’s draconian laws. This is an attempt to turn Israel into a dark….dictatorship. Every government minister, even if he or she opposes the laws, is part of a system that is silencing the citizens. This is not a matter of an opposition to the government. There must be a front that expresses the sane and balanced voice.”

In fact, Israel abandoned sanity and democratic values long ago. Current Knesset extremists lowered both bars further. No law is too outrageous to pass. Expect free expression to be criminalized and human rights work subverted.

Other proposed legislation affects procedures for High Court appointments and asylum seeker rights. Expect further rule of law weakening throughout the session. It’s been endangered for years. Death and burial may soon follow.

A Final Comment

Haaretz said “Western intelligence” officials told Time magazine that Mossad operatives caused Saturday’s Iranian explosion, killing 17 and wounding 15.

At issue is sabotaging Iran’s nuclear program. Time was told, “There are more bullets in the magazine.”

Occurring at the Modarres Military base near Tehran, Revolutionary Guard General Hasan Moghaddam and 16 other military forces were killed.

Head of Iran’s parliamentary National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Alaeddin Boroujerdi told the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) that the incident would be investigated.

Tehran’s western suburbs felt its force, 45 km away. Some thought it was an earthquake. Some reports said an initial blast was followed by a second one.

In recent years, other explosions rocked Iran. Two years ago, a similar incident killed 20 about 500 km southwest of Tehran. The Washington-based Global Security Institute said a base used to assemble and store long-range Shihab-3 missiles was targeted.

Iran said Mossad, CIA and Britain’s MI6 used Jundollah and other terrorist groups for years to commit attacks on targeted sites.

Known covert operations have gone on for years, including cyber attacks, political assassinations, sabotage, false accusations, and other destabilizing tactics.

A Bush administration Finding authorized $400 million for covert mischief and intelligence collection. CIA operatives get carte blanche authority to commit sabotage, recruit anti-regime insurgents, coordinate propaganda, spread malicious lies, manipulate Iran’s currency, and conduct other lawless acts.

Iran’s nuclear program is specifically targeted. Regime change plans were prepared long ago. Washington favors a “Greater Baluchistan,” integrating Pakistani and Iranian Baluch areas under puppet officials subservient to America. In other words, balkanizing both countries for easier control is planned.

Moreover, Israel’s longstanding Iranian hostility is palpable. At issue is regional rivalry. Israel wants unchallenged Middle East dominance.

Nothing’s to extreme to get it, including all out war. Some observers think it’s coming. It’s just a matter of time, perhaps as soon as Christmas. Expect the entire region to explode if it happens.

Ron Paul Allowed Only 89 Seconds Shows Us Why Old Media is Dying and the Alternative Media is Rising

From Lone Star Watchdog

Posted by realman2020

  It is did not surprise me Congressmen Ron Paul only got 89 seconds of debate time. This only proves why the old dinosaur media is losing readers and an audience. This kind of audacity shows why they are losing credibility with the readers. Even the phony conservative talk radio is losing their listeners is because they do not report what people need to know. They cloak neoconservative ideology as true conservatism The spell is breaking of the phony left right paradigm thanks to the alternative media and bloggers. The rising independent journalism now covers issues the main stream media at one time dared not touch are now are forced to report now to maintain credibility just to compete with the alternative media.

              Now we hear news shows talk about he Federal Reserve Bank, The Builderburger Group and the International Bankers. The news media has been forced to report about the  dangers of vaccines and abuses of child protective services. They have been forced to talk about content they would suppress years ago. The cannot compete any longer with the independent citizen journalist. People with video cameras and other technology has allowed this alternative media force to rival the dinosaur media for readers and an audience. The old political media establishment now has to face facts about the way things were done and how they must do things to just stay competitive if they want to exist.

             When the debate was on last weekend when Congressman Ron Paul appeared in the debates was only given 89 seconds while loser Romney and the other globalist candidates had more time shows the bias in the media. This old media bias will not work in the age of the internet. They can try to censor us and shut the web down. People are looking for alternative means to take the place of the internet as we know to communicate and get the word out if they use draconian means of censorship. This bias may have worked 25 years ago, but it will not work today thanks to the alternative media. If the old guard media knows what they have to do to survive to stay relevant. They cannot show anymore bias anymore. Maybe they will think twice next time before they decide to give Ron Paul 89 seconds because if they will not treat Dr. No fair. When it is time for them to make their case. They might not get the forum to make their case. Not even 89 senconds What goes around comes around. Is that what we call karma?

No, It Is NOT “Legal” For Congress To Insider-Trade — The SEC Should Launch Investigation Immediately

From Business Insider

By Henry Blodget

Spencer Bachus

                  Rules are for the little people.

The fact that many members of Congress appear to have traded on non-public information in their personal brokerage accounts during the financial crisis is outrageous.

But since this bombshell news broke on Sunday night, the excuse has been that, however ridiculous it may sound, insider trading is legal for Congress.

This same assertion has been repeated for years, every time someone observes that Congress members do much better in their personal stock trading than average investors do. Unlike average Joes, the pundits explain, Congress has exempted itself from insider-trading laws, so Congress-people are allowed to trade on private information that they gather in the course of their work while other Americans can’t.

But at least one law professor argues that this is just not true.

Insider trading is just as illegal for members of Congress as it is for the 300+ million Americans, Indiana Law Professor Donna Nagy argues.

Congress never “exempted” itself from insider trading laws, Nagy says–because Congress has never actually passed a law about insider trading.

By trading on information gathered in the course of their jobs, Nagy says, Congress-people are abusing the public trust and violating a legal duty, just the way any other insider-traders do.

So the Congress people who traded during the financial crisis (and since) should be investigated and, possibly, prosecuted for their behavior.

The definition of insider trading is trading while in possession of material non-public information.

On September 16th, 2008, a new book by Peter Schweizer alleges, Rep. Spencer Bachus and other members of Congress attended a private, off-the-record (read: non-public) briefing from Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke about the state of the economy.

The next day, some Congress-people who attended the briefing, including Rep. Bachus and Dick Durbin, sold stocks or bet against the market. A few days later, after the market had tanked, Rep. Bachus cashed out his bet for a tidy profit.

Now, hands up, who out there thinks that a private off-the-record briefing from the two most important financial executives in the country would be considered “material non-public information”?

I certainly do.

“Material non-public information” is any information that a reasonable person might want to consider when making an investment decision.

And this reasonable person, anyway, would definitely want to consider the latest thinking and information of Fed Chairman and the Treasury Secretary when placing a bet on the market.

If a Wall Street executive had been at that briefing and then immediately dumped his/her stocks or bet against the market, you can be confident that Congress and the public would be screaming about corruption and unfairness and the shafting of “the little guy” and calling for the executive’s head.

The personal trading of Congress-people after this briefing is no different.

Bachus and Durbin (and others) got the information they traded in possession of because they were doing a job on behalf of their constituents. The information was confidential, and, in in all likelihood, material. And they appear to have immediately used it for their own personal gain.

Even if this behavior is not judged to be illegal, it’s certainly unethical. At the very least, the SEC should launch a full investigation.
