Obama's efforts on Iran sanctions fall short of expectations

The 12-2 vote in the U.N. Security Council on Wednesday to impose a modest tightening of sanctions on Iran poses a conundrum: How could an administration that spent months reaching out to Iran and its allies to build international unity end up with a worse result than when George W. Bush was president?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think Obama just walked into a trap.

By going along with the sanctions, Russia and China have removed the possibility of an attack by Israel and the US for the immediate future. The US has to give the new sanctions time to work, and the fact that we know these new sanctions won't have any more effect on Iran's non-existent nuclear arsenal than previous one. As this article points out, the new sanctions are watered down from previous sanctions. They cannot really have an effect. Worse, American businesses are coming forward to report that the new sanctions will harm American businesses more than they will harm Iran. But Israel must be obeyed, the sanctions were voted through, and now the US must be seen to give the new sanctions time to work. Now that the sanctions are a done deal, there is no more story! Iran is off the table as a media distraction for the next few months!

That means Obama and Israel have lost their largest smoke screen, and now the focus shifts back to...

1. Israel's possession of nuclear weapons and the attempted sale to South Africa.

2. Israel's attack on the aid flotilla in international waters.

3. The US Government's total abandonment of American citizens and a US-flagged ship in their haste to protect Israel from criticism.

4. The collapsing economy.

5. The Gulf Oil disaster.

By going along with the new sanctions, Russia and China have created a situation where Obama cannot justify an attack on Iran until AFTER the November elections, too late to use Iran as a campaign issue to keep Democrats in control of Congress.

'Israel Trains Militants In Iraq'

The director of a Turkish think tank says Israel trains the armed men with the anti-Ankara militant group, Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in northern Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Recall that it was the PKK that launched a rocket attack on the Turkish naval facility just as Israel attacked the aid flotilla. The rocket attack was timed to inhibit Turkey's ability to intervene when their people are being killed.

Jun 09 12:41


“The ultimate lesson of the Liberty attack had far more effect on policy in Israel than America. Israel’s leaders concluded that nothing they might do would offend the Americans to the point of reprisal. If America’s leaders did not have the courage to punish Israel for the blatant murder of American citizens it seemed clear that their American friends would let them get away with almost anything.” (Undersecretary of State George Ball)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama sure as hell proved them correct last week, didn't he?

Seems like the blogs are a better fried to Americans than the White House.

MSNBC Hit Piece Smears Tea Party As Neo-Nazis

An MSNBC hit piece set to air next week attempts to smear Tea Party activists and average Americans concerned about how the financial crisis is being exploited as neo-nazi Hitler supporters who want to go on killing sprees, highlighting once again the corporate media’s desperation to eviscerate the popularity of anti-establishment political candidates in the run up to the November elections.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given last night's Tea Party victory in Nevada, coupled with Orly Taitz' Hindenberg-esque fall from the skies despite the backing of the Jewish Republican Coalition and a huge media blitz, it should be clear that the corporate media has lost control of the voters. The people understand that the Tea Party stands for "Taxed Enough Already" and crosses all party and ideological lines. Claims to the contrary on ABCNNBBCBS News are widely recognized as the USDA choice manure they really are.

Liz Cheney shovels Israel's manure!

Liz Cheney, daughter of former U.S. vice president Dick Cheney and a former senior State Department official known for her conservative views, on Sunday accused Turkey of joining an axis of countries and groups seeking to harm Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Look, I understand that being a mindless Israeli stooge is mandatory for a career in US politics, but let us not abuse the privilege. Please keep in mind who attacked whose ships in international waters!

Israel Steps Up Operations in Gaza

Gaza’s 1.5 million people are the victims of a barbaric collective punishment inflicted by the Israeli state. In Palestinian Authority elections staged in January 2006, the Fatah candidates that were favoured and funded by Israel and the US lost to Hamas. Israel, the US, and Europe responded by freezing all Palestinian Authority funds, triggering a collapse in basic services and governmental infrastructure in both Gaza and the West Bank. At the same time, Washington spearheaded covert preparations for an anti-Hamas coup, providing money and weapons to elements within Fatah.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even in light of the literal collapse of the blockade due to Egypt's opening of the border indefinitely, look for continued IDF and Israeli Navy attacks in the region to ramp up, just to send the message "we're still in brutal control here, and there's nothing anyone else can do about it!"

Jewish rabbis storm the Aqsa with security protection

Senior Jewish rabbis stormed the holy Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem on Tuesday passing through the Maghareba gate under protection of Israeli occupation police.

The US-NATO "Arc of War" Stretches From Afghanistan to the Caspian Sea and the Caucasus

That Baku replaced Beijing on the Pentagon chief’s way to the NATO meeting indicates the importance that the comparatively small nation – with a population of under nine million while China’s is over 1.3 billion – has in American global geostrategic plans.

Gates’ main concentration – or at least that of most immediate importance – was on the expanding war in South Asia, where he will soon have 100,000 U.S. troops serving with another 50,000 NATO forces.

Western and local reports have recently divulged that 25 percent of U.S. and NATO supplies and equipment for the Afghan war pass through what is referred to as the Caucasus Spur – Azerbaijan and Georgia – and that “100,000 troops have flown through Azerbaijani airspace in the past year en route to Afghanistan.” [7]

China reaps benefits of Iraq war with oil deals

Perspiration staining their orange jumpsuits, the Chinese engineers and laborers form Al-Waha Oil Co. work alongside their Iraqi counterparts under a sweltering sun readying an expanse of arid land southeast of Baghdad for infrastructure to extract and carry the viscous liquid on which Iraq's future lies: oil.

The scene, an increasingly common one in the new postwar Iraq, is more than a reflection of how the country home to the world's third largest proven reserves of crude is pushing to boost its output. It's also a testament to the lengths to which China will go to secure the oil it sorely needs to fuel its galloping economy as its own crude supplies fall far short of demand.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

China makes deals to get the oil it needs; the US wages wars to achieve the same outcome.

What's wrong with this picture?!? EVERYTHING, in light of the fact that these wars without end are bankrupting the country!!!!

Israel to Ease Blockade in Exchange For Weak Flotilla Inquiry

Israel is poised to accept a British plan to ease its blockade of Gaza in exchange for international acceptance of a watered-down investigation into last week's deadly raid on a Turkish aid ship, The Daily Telegraph reported Wednesday.

The blockade is already down. The border to Egypt is open. Send Israel's leadership and their American slaves to the Hague!

A resilient Iran shields itself from pressure by building alliances

A year ago, Iran was on its way to becoming a pariah state. Dozens of governments accused Iranian leaders of stealing the presidential election and condemned the brutal crackdown on protesters that followed. The country faced sanctions and international scorn over its controversial nuclear program.

7 Questions for Defenders of Israel's Inhumane Siege of Gaza

Apologists for the brutal siege of Gaza base their defense largely on a single, spectacularly dishonest argument: that Israel is only trying to keep arms out of Gaza -- arms that Hamas might use against Israeli civilians.

It’s a red herring of monstrous proportions, made more pernicious by the brutal effects of the blockade it supports. It’s dishonest because people around the world are not outraged by the idea of Israel keeping weapons out of the hands of Hamas. The entire world (perhaps aside from the United States and Israel) is appalled by the gradual strangulation of the people of Gaza -- young and old, innocent and guilty-- under an intentional man-made humanitarian crisis.

Free Gaza Leader: ‘We’ll Be Back – With Bigger Flotillas’

Q: The Israelis state that violence was only used against the passengers on the Mavi Marmara who resisted. Do you agree with this?

A: This is a lie. The Israelis used excessive force and violence on all the boats even when no resistance was offered. Journalists were attacked, some activists were beaten so badly that they needed to be hospitalized when they arrived in Ashdod.

An Israeli commando stood on my head with his boot and ground my head into the deck until I screamed. I was handcuffed and a hood was put over my head. Later on in Ashkelon I was hit through the face by a policeman, elbowed in the jaw, and dragged by my hair when I refused to get into a police car.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah yes, the "magnificently moral" Israeli Navy, and their actions against an unarmed humanitarian FEMALE activist; way to go, Israeli Navy!!

Have you ever shown your true colors better than during this massacre?!? I sincerely doubt it!

The Bigot on Comedy Central: Jon Stewart and the Crucifixion of Helen Thomas

There is a reason Jon Stewart has such an intact comedy news throne. He's well educated, always current, a sharp wit; he's funny, and he's the right religion. In my mind's eye, Stewart's face keeps blurring with Ted Nugent's, and those of other heroes who have eventually shown their real colors. The reason is simple: these are the pop culture sellouts.

I could care less what religion he or anyone else is, until it starts getting in the way of the human race, which it did in last night's program where he rips into veteran White House reporter Helen Thomas.

Netanyahu, Obama to meet at end of June

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet in Washington with President Obama at the end of the month.

Obama and Netanyahu both want to upgrade U.S.-brokered "proximity" talks between Israel and the Palestinians to direct talks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There's not much else for them to talk about, after the UN having passed the sanctions which will preclude any attack against Iran until after the US elections in November.

And ultimately, what we will continue to see from Israel will be a brisk annexation of Jerusalem and the West Bank, coupled with forced deportations of Palestinians living there to Gaza and/or beyond.

Thanks, Helen, for telling it like it is!

Thanks and hugs from all, Helen Thomas, 89-year old, oft-referred to “dean of the White House press corps,” who retired today, Monday, moments after the parroting White House Correspondents Association said it was considering stripping her of her front row press briefing room seat. What brought on their echoing ire?

Well, it was as simple as Helen suggesting back in May that Israeli Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” and return to Germany and Poland “or wherever they came from.” Bless you, Helen, for claiming your rights of free speech and the press, constitutionally granted to you, and telling the violent if not psychopathic state of Israel where to go. I personally would have suggested hell, a more fitting place for these lying, two-faced lunatics.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fastest way to bring down a dictatorship is to force them to act like one where everyone can see it. Israel fell into that trap a week ago, and like a Mammoth doomed to extinction stuck in the La Brea tar pits, struggles in vain to extricate itself.

Gulf of Mexico oil leak sparks price rise warning

There are warnings that oil prices could rise substantially because of stricter regulations brought in to prevent another oil spill like that in the Gulf of Mexico.

Contracts to buy oil are already rising in price, with a 10% increase in cost for those which end next year compared to those ending next month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This oil disaster in the Gulf will not only impact the price of gasoline; it will impact the prices on everything.

Pentagon Tightens Grip on the Obama Administration and the Intelligence Community

President Barack Obama's appointment of retired Gen. James Clapper as the director of national intelligence (DNI) demonstrates the Pentagon's enormous influence over the president and indicates that there is little likelihood of genuine reform of the hidebound intelligence community. Once again, the president has appointed a general officer to an important strategic position that should be in the hands of an experienced civilian who understands the need for change.

Attorney: Deepwater Horizon Managers Knew About Oil Rig Problem Before Explosion

Top Houston attorney Tony Buzbee says he has new evidence which indicates that Deepwater Horizon’s managers knew that the BP oil rig had major problems before its explosion on April 20, citing the eyewitness account of a crew member who rescued burning workers on the rig of a conversation between Deepwater Horizon installation manager Jimmy Harrell and someone in Houston. According to the witness, Harrell was screaming, “Are you fucking happy? Are you fucking happy? The rig’s on fire! I told you this was gonna happen.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We expect corporations to place profits ahead of safety. We DEMAND that the US Government maintain the safety of the nation's infrastructure, but while the White House and Congress were totally focused on helping Israel bitch-slap the Gazans, the Iraqi, the Afghani, the [watch this space] the Minerals Management Service, the official government oversight body funded with your tax dollars, spent their taxpayer-funded time watching porn on their taxpayer-funded computers, while the oil companies they were supposed to be keeping an eye on supplied them with hookers, drugs, and filled out the safety and audit paperwork themselves.

Obama is going to scowl and kick ass now that the disaster has happened, but in truth his job was to take care of the United States, not Israel, and he flat-out failed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is time to seriously invest in new energy sources, rather than these token "polite efforts" that never challenge the oil oligarchy.

UN votes for new sanctions on Iran over nuclear issue

The UN Security Council has voted in favour of fresh sanctions against Iran over its nuclear programme.

The council voted 12 to two, with one abstention, in favour of a fourth round of sanctions, including tighter finance curbs and an expanded arms embargo.

The US welcomed the move and said Iran must choose a "wiser course".

But Iran's envoy to the UN's nuclear watchdog Ali Asghar Soltanieh vowed Tehran would continue its uranium enrichment activities.

"Nothing will change," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I moved this from a member post to a regular post because I wanted to add the following observations.

Remember what I said below about Russia being a chess layer? I think Obama just walked into a trap.

By going along with the sanctions, Russia and China have removed the possibility of an attack by Israel and the US for the immediate future. The US has to give the new sanctions time to work, and the fact that we know these new sanctions won't have any more effect on Iran's non-existent nuclear arsenal than previous one. But the US must be seen to give the new sanctions time to work and now that the sanctions have been voted through, there is no more story!

Israel's Cult of Victimhood: 'Barefoot' Soldiers on the High Seas

Why are Israelis so indignant at the international outrage that has greeted their country's lethal attack last week on a flotilla of civilian ships taking aid to Gaza?

Israelis have not responded in any of the ways we might have expected. There has been little soul-searching about the morality, let alone legality, of soldiers invading ships in international waters and killing civilians. In the main, Israelis have not been interested in asking tough questions of their political and military leaders about why the incident was handled so badly. And only a few commentators appear concerned about the diplomatic fall-out.

Helen Thomas a victim of American media bias

Helen Thomas answered the questions right, but the so-called mainstream media and Israel supporters in the United States shamelessly pounced on this 89-year-old lady who will be 90 in August and accused her of indulging in “anti-Semitism” when in fact she was not. Helen Thomas did not say or mean that Jews should leave West Jerusalem, Haifa, Yafa, Tel Aviv and Nazareth and go back to Germany or Poland, as the media made it out to be. The context of her words was, in fact, a reference to the occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem by Israel since 1967.

Helen Thomas' statement does not differ much from the official US policy that considers the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem illegal.

Israel eases Gaza blockade on some banned foods

Palestinian official Raed Fattouh, who coordinates the flow of goods into Gaza with Israel, said soda, juice, jam, spices, shaving cream, potato chips, cookies and candy were now permitted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Meaning that soda, juice, jam, spices, shaving cream, potato chips, cookies and candy were banned by Israel from reaching Gaza. I dare just one of the Megaphones to explain to the rest of us what possible military benefit comes from banning soda, juice, jam, spices, shaving cream, potato chips, cookies and candy in Gaza!

The blockade of Gaza by Israel is a repeat of the blockade of West Berlin by the USSR. The goal is to starve the people into abandoning their elected government and accepting foreign rule.

Cookies, for crying out loud; how petty and mean can you get?

Is Obama BP's Poodle?

After BP successfully placed a cap to divert some of the spewing oil into tankers, tens of thousands of gallons continue to flow daily into the gulf. August is slated as the earliest date that any permanent solution may emerge. BP remains totally in charge of potentially the largest environmental disaster in the earth’s recorded history, a fact that proves — in “check mate” fashion — that corporations dominate the inner workings of the U.S. government, a truth previously revealed by the bank bailouts.

More than one gigantic eco-system may be destroyed by BP, and the President of the U.S. is sadly reduced to lecturing in “serious tones,” with daily adjustments of tone based on the results of polling agencies.

Nailed Again: IDF Description of Suspicious Photo It Distributed Is Retracted

The IDF apparently told Haaretz that the photo was taken immediately after its Naval commandos raided the Mavi Marmara and other flotilla ships — at least, that’s how Haaretz described the photo based on an IDF source. Yet the raid was conducted under the cover of darkness. How could a photo obviously taken during daytime have portrayed an event that took place during the late evening? Do Muslims have magical powers that allow them to turn night into day? And why were reporters standing around, casually taking photos when commandos were supposedly getting "lynched?" Once again, the IDF’s story was highly suspect.

Egypt to keep border with impoverished Gaza Strip open

After three years of cooperating in the Israeli blockade of Gaza, Egypt said that it will leave its border with the Palestinian territory open indefinitely for humanitarian aid and restricted travel.

The blockade is finished. There is therefore no need for Obama to make any deals with Israel to limit the scope of an international investigation into the attack on the aid flotilla in international waters.

Obama will make that deal anyway, because any investigation will only remind the American people how the US Government shamelessly turned its back on its own citizens in the rush to protect Israel from criticism.

The Aftermath of the Flotilla - by Anna Baltzer

Last night marked one week since Israel's attack in international waters on the Mavi Marmara Turkish humanitarian ship bound for Gaza, killing nine. One by one, the hundreds of witnesses aboard the vessels have been returning home to tell their stories after being stripped of any and all footage. By confiscating all non-military evidence of the incident, Israel has been able to successfully dominate the narrative, at least in the US where news of the attack had begun to dwindle by the time witnesses were released. One wonders, if Israel is conveying the whole story of what happened that night, why eliminate every single other piece of documentation? What does Israel have to hide?

Israel Opens Door For New Look At Holocaust

The radical concepts of the Likud Party in Israel, led by Benjamin Netanyahu, of limiting citizenship based on, not only racial characteristics, but bizarre interpretations of government funded genetic research into "racial purity" deeply parallel those enacted by that other "special country" in Europe many years ago. Systematic war and peace, ever expanding borders, continual propagandizing, resettlement of "impure racial stock" and exclusion from political and economic life, are characteristics of a "corporate state."

Apple's Iphone 4 will trounce its Ipad

Apple's fourth Iphone is technically the most impressive mobile device it has launched. It won't have the same impact as the second generation unit that brought with it the App Store, but it will help Apple in its losing fight with Android. The problem for Jobs is that it has also shown up the Ipad for the device that it really is, an oversized Iphone without a phone.

The Bigot on Comedy Central: Jon Stewart and the Crucifixion of Helen Thomas

He's no friend of veteran journalists, or the Palestinian people.

(SALEM, Ore.) - There is a reason Jon Stewart has such an intact comedy news throne. He's well educated, always current, a sharp wit; he's funny, and he's the right religion. In my mind's eye, Stewart's face keeps blurring with Ted Nugent's, and those of other heroes who have eventually shown their real colors. The reason is simple: these are the pop culture sellouts.

I could care less what religion he or anyone else is, until it starts getting in the way of the human race, which it did in last night's program where he rips into veteran White House reporter Helen Thomas.

Ex-teacher learns the hard way: Watch what you put online

"One thing I told my students is not to gloat, not to strike a hostile tone in their speeches," she wrote on prettyfreaky.blogspot.com. "Then, of course, I heard a speech that did both of those things."

Collins added that she felt "annoyance" because she disagreed with the politics of the speech and "dismay" that her message about the right tone was not getting through.

(Though she never said so on her blog, in an interview Collins said that the student had given a speech about "Obama's lies." She provided The Inquirer with copies of documents from the school and the family about the events leading to her firing, and her responses.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A clear example of schools abandoning education to focus on political indoctrination. If the US Government intends to send these kids out to die for the Bill of Rights, the very least the teachers should do is teach the kids to use those rights! Coming down on the student publicly because she disagreed with the political content was completely over the line.

Essay of the week: What drives Israel?

The first and most important assumption is that what used to be historical Palestine is by sacred and irrefutable right the political, cultural and religious possession of the Jewish people represented by the Zionist movement and later the state of Israel.

Most of the Israelis, politicians and citizens alike, understand that this right can’t be fully realised. But although successive governments were pragmatic enough to accept the need to enter peace negotiations and strive for some sort of territorial compromise, the dream has not been forsaken. Far more important is the conception and representation of any pragmatic policy as an act of ultimate and unprecedented international generosity.

Israel set to OK 'quid pro quo' Gaza deal: report

Israel is set to accept a plan under which it would ease its Gaza blockade in return for the international community agreeing to a limited probe into a deadly flotilla raid, it was reported Wednesday, as Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas was due to hold talks with U.S. President Barack Obama in Washington.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama will go along with this, under the excuse of "Hey you got the blockade eased so shaddup already" but in truth the Egyptians have already broken the blockade and intend to keep their border with Gaza open indefinitely.

But Obama is in a panic. Helen Thomas may have been the first to ask why DC turned its back on Americans in their rush to protect Israel, but she will not be the last and crushing her in full public view may have created more problems than it solved. Any international investigation into the attack in the aid flotilla will be a constant reminder to the world at to America that the US Federal Government was more worried about protecting Israel than its own citizens.

That is an impossible issue to deal with in an election year and the incumbents' only chance at holding onto power is to bury the scandal and trick the voters back into thinking that things like immigration and gay marriage are most important to the nation.

Obama needs this scandal to go away as much as Israel does, and so he will make any deal that allows a real investigation to be avoided.

The problem for the Gazans is simple. Right now, with the Egyptian border open, Gaza is free. But if Israel is allowed to resume control over the Gazan borders, no matter how open they are now, eventually the slow strangulation
will start again because that is Israel's history.

The only permanent solution is for Israel to draw its borders and agree to live within them, and to accord to Palestine the same right to exist that Israel demands for itself.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All this last week Israel's "Megaphones" have fought a battle on Twitter for world opinion regarding the attack on the aid flotilla and the subsequent collapse of the blockade at the Egyptian border; a battle Israel's shills have been losing. Then today, twitter is suddenly unavailable, being jammed with far too many tweets to function either through twitter.com or through the API. Maybe it is just a coincidence, but I do not view networking that goes down when it is most convenient for the tyrants of this world as a matter of luck. Israel has the highest per-capita concentration of hackers in the world, and this downtime for twitter is certainly very convenient for them.

I wonder how long it will be before the "problem" is fixed.

UPDATE: The web interface to twitter is starting to work sporadically, but the API is still reporting it is overloaded and unavailable.

UPDATE 2: Twitter starting to work, although many functions disabled.

“All I saw in Israel was cowards with guns”

I remember being asked during the TJP Human Shield Action to Iraq if I was a pacifist, I responded with a quote from Gandhi by saying I am not a passive anything. To the contrary I believe in action, and I also believe in self-defence, 100%, without reservation. I would be incapable of standing by while a tyrant murders my family, and the attack on the Mavi Marmara was like an attack on my Palestinian family. I am proud to have stood shoulder to shoulder with those who refused to let a rogue Israeli military exert their will without a fight. And yes, we fought.

Copter shot down in Afghanistan; 4 Americans dead

Insurgents shot down a NATO helicopter and killed four American troops in southern Afghanistan on Wednesday, the military said, in the latest bloodshed ahead of a major operation in the militants' heartland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Some points of Clarifications.

1. They are not "insurgents", they are defending their homes from a foreign invader. You and I would do the exact same thing.

2. When the Afghanis learned how to shoot down the Soviet helicopters it was the beginning of the end for the USSR.

3. The US has been in Afghanistan longer than it was in Vietnam, and aside from the oil and opium and keeping Russia from supporting Iran when that nation gets invaded, nobody seems to have a really good reason for staying any longer.

Tea Party Candidates, Women Roar in Primary Election Night

in Nevada, Tea Party-backed candidate Sharron Angle claimed a decisive victory after surging in the polls against a more established GOP competitor in the final weeks of the race.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Clearly the anti-incumbent fever is grabbing the nation. The Tea Party continues to be a force operating outside the traditional establishment, but the really important contest not even mentioned in this article at all is Orly Taitz, who ran for California Secretary of State. Despite her "birther" credentials, Orly was backed by the Republican Jewish Coalition and only 24 hours ago, was being touted in the corporate media as a likely victor, She lost.

She not only lost but she was crushed. IN an election dominated by women, Orly despite her Jewish support, lost to a football player who barely campaigned at all. The message here is that our "America needs leaders who put American first, second, and third" message is getting out there. Orly's webwite promotes the required pro-Israel agenda, and Orly was doing the mandatory visit to Israel even while still exploiting the birther nonsense to get her name in the media.

But it did not work. This friend of Israel was clearly sent a message she is no friend of America.

Good on the Californians! Good for America. Let us keep it up!

Israel is a lying, rogue nuclear state enabled by the lying, rogue United States. Public uprising?

*hyperlinks and outstanding PuppetGov video, "The Uprising" live at source*

Israel was accepted as a member of the United Nations (UN) in 1948 contingent upon their acceptance of UN Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 194, which included:

11. Resolves that the refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbours should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property which, under principles of international law or in equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible;

Israel has never fulfilled this condition.

The Ringworm Children: Zionist Eugenics of the Sephardim

Just doing my part in keeping the Hell on Earth Theme Park of Israel on the map as if they aren't doing enough themselves. Its not a tourist destination most of us want to visit, yet I've been, except for US politicians on the AIPAC fast track to power. Before the Megaphonies get involved, the author of the article is a self-proclaimed tribe member, Jewish in her own right, but not very happy of that fact as of late...

The Ashkenazim, the pale white bloodline converts to Judaism we all see day to day, date back to 800 AD out of what is now Kazakhstan or Central Asia. They have much disdain for the real sephardim Jews of the region, the brown skinned locals, as they treat them like an underclass while importing other peoples of real sephardic bloodlines to experiment on - all the while shouting "anti-semite" at anyone challenging them on their war crime atrocities and apartheid politics, yet they seem to keep emulating the power structure of WWII Germany, History Channel's only programming. The Ashkenazi Zionists are the true anti-semites, haters of sephardic Jews and Arabs who both share the patriarch Abraham as they both claim him as "our Father." Just like the USS Liberty, another area of Israel that stays in the dark...

UN Security Council is world’s most undemocratic body: Ahmadinejad

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called the UN Security Council the “most undemocratic international body” since it is dominated by the five veto-welding permanent members.

His remarks came as the Security Council is likely to approve a fourth round of sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program this week.

“The structure of the Security Council is discriminatory and unjust, such that the Security Council is the most undemocratic international body,” Ahmadinejad told reporters on the sidelines of a security summit in Istanbul.

“The fact that a few countries have a veto right means that they dominate the entire world,” he added.

Also in attendance: GOP heavyweights Karl Rove, former Senator Norm Coleman, and California Senate candidates Chuck DeVore and Carly Fiorina.

An RJC staffer confirmed the program posted by Taitz is authentic. RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks was not immediately available for comment

Senate weakens bid to tax Wall Street like rest of us

Currently, managers of these investment funds are compensated with a share of the fund's profits, referred to as "carried interest." This compensation is taxed as a capital gain, and the capital gains tax is now 15 percent.

FTC floats news blog tax to bailout flailing corporate media

In other words, government policy would encourage a tax on websites like the What Really Happened, a must-read source for the news links of the day, so that the agency can redistribute the funds collected to various newspapers. Such a tax would hit other news aggregators, such as Digg, Fark and Reddit, which not only gather links, but provide a forum for a lively and entertaining discussion of the issues raised by the stories.

Of course this will backfire. The corporate media seems to forget that the majority of their web traffic comes from bloggers and news aggregators. Their dwindling readership/viewership sis caused by their lack of integrity.

Israel’s political occupation of the White House press corps
By Yvonne Ridley
Hold the front page!
"It seems the most famous gaggle of journalists in the world finally got steamed up about a comment made by one of their own… against Israel."
"What a gutless, feckless collective of cabestros.
Just a few days ago, no less than 60 journalists on board the Gaza-bound Freedom Flotilla were shot at, abused, beaten up, and robbed by the military representing the Zionist regime of Israel. Was there one word of anger, one word of recrimination, or a statement released about the treatment of fellow journalists who were on board a series of ships which were attacked in international waters?"

Senator Nelson: The BP Well May Have Lost Structural Integrity Beneath the Sea Floor

Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL): Andrea we’re looking into something new right now, that there’s reports of oil that’s seeping up from the seabed… which would indicate, if that’s true, that the well casing itself is actually pierced… underneath the seabed. So, you know, the problems could be just enormous with what we’re facing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This makes sense. For 50 days now the inside of the drill pipe and well casing have been sandblasted with gravel and rock being spewed upward by thousands of tons of pressure of oil and gas. The well casing and drill pipe have to have eroded and breakthough was inevitable.

Roger Waters sings for Gaza

"Over the new year 2009-2010, an international group of 1500 men and women from 42 nations went to Egypt to join a Freedom March to Gaza. They did this to protest the current blockade of Gaza. To protest the fact that the people of Gaza live in a virtual prison. To protest the fact that a year after the terror attack by Israeli armed forces destroyed most of their homes, hospitals, schools, and other public buildings, they have no possibility to rebuild because their borders are closed. The would be Freedom Marchers wanted to peacefully draw attention to the predicament of the Palestinian population of Gaza. The Egyptian government, (funded to the tune of $2.1 billion a year, by us, the US tax payers), would not allow the marchers to approach Gaza. How lame is that? And how predictable!

Apparently, Operation Cyanide included an Israeli war against Egypt in order to depose Gamal Abdul Nasser, a purported Soviet puppet. U.S. intelligence and military specialists were sent to Israel months before to plan and prepare for the operation. The operation was an agreement between Johnson and Israel during which the USS Liberty was supposed to be sunk, along with all of her crew. When Israel's attack failed to sink the ship, the game plan changed which included an apology from Israel and a phony cover story.

Palestine- An Israeli dumping ground for radioactive/toxic waste

We have seen the decades of suffering by the Palestinian people at the hands of the apartheid government of Israel and yet little has been said about another unseen problem that lies buried beneath the ground.

Over a long period of time the Israeli Government has secretly been dumping highly radioactive waste from their Dimona Nuclear Facility on Palestinian land. What is ironic is the basis as to why they have dumped their waste at such locations.
