cue the lightning bolts

the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

Emergency preparedness exercises held at banks

Banks are good for something, see? They'll give you your poison medicine to get you through the bioengineered or other government sponsored terrorist attack. - Ed.

Deborah Seng pulled up to a bank drive-through today and left with a better idea of what to do in an public health emergency, such a bioterrorism attack or global pandemic.

She was one of dozens of people who participated an emergency preparedness exercise sponsored by the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health & Wellness that tested the use of bank drive-throughs to deliver medications in emergencies.

"I wanted to be prepared," said Seng, 51, of Portland, turning toward the health workers outside her car window: "Thanks for doing this!"

In the exercise, held at the National City Bank branches at 6511 Preston Highway and 2601 Bank St., workers gave about 200 drivers boxes of raisins representing antibiotics that would be used to treat people in the event of a bioterrorism attack with anthrax.

But health officials said the same distribution method could be used if, for example, swine flu became more virulent in the fall and vaccines or medicines needed to be distributed widely to the public.

"This model is basically adaptable to any number of disasters — natural or man-made," said Bill Wetter, preparedness manager for the local health department.

Avigdor: The US agrees with EVERYTHING WE SAY neener neener neener

TEL AVIV - Israel and the United States agree on what needs to be achieved with the Palestinians but not on how to achieve those goals, extremist Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Thursday.

"The meeting with (Barack) Obama showed that there is complete understanding with the United State concerning strategic targets," he told industrialists in reference to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's White House meeting with the US president on Monday.

"On the Palestinian issue, there is agreement as to the final destination," Lieberman said in Tel Aviv.

"Everyone wants to see security, economic prosperity, and stability. Perhaps there is a tactical disagreement as to what is the best way to attain these goals," Lieberman said, according to Israeli media.

IAF holds drill simulating all out war

Israel Air Force squadrons took part in a large scale drill simulating war on all fronts over the past four days, Channel 10 reported Thursday.

Fighter jets, cargo planes and missile defense systems of the corps took part in the drill where defense from a simultaneous attack against Israel from the south and the north was simulated.

Unlike previous drills, the air force did not train on long-range sorties, such as those that would be carried out during an offensive targeting Iran's nuclear facilities; the drill this past week focused on defending the country.

FCC's warrantless household searches alarm experts

You may not know it, but if you have a wireless router, a cordless phone, remote car-door opener, baby monitor or cellphone in your house, the FCC claims the right to enter your home without a warrant at any time of the day or night in order to inspect it.

That’s the upshot of the rules the agency has followed for years to monitor licensed television and radio stations, and to crack down on pirate radio broadcasters. And the commission maintains the same policy applies to any licensed or unlicensed radio-frequency device.

“Anything using RF energy — we have the right to inspect it to make sure it is not causing interference,” says FCC spokesman David Fiske. That includes devices like Wi-Fi routers that use unlicensed spectrum, Fiske says.

Be Inquisitive!


So listen carefully to what he says in video below of a speech he made a few days ago. As if the crowd were not already on his side, he butters them up with his casual, man-of-the-people style, before turning serious on them:

“Unfortunately, finding that common ground, recognising that our fates are tied up - as Doctor King said, ‘in a single garment of destiny’ - is not easy. And part of the problem of course lies in the imperfections of Man: our selfishness, our pride, our stubbornness, our inquisitiveness, our insecurities, our egos - all the qualities, large and small, that those of us in the Christian tradition understand to be rooted in original sin.”

You see? Pastor Obama is telling us that inquisitiveness is sinful.

When belief in the system fades

The profound disincentives in our economy are leading productive middle class entrepreneurs to drop out. The government's response is to raise taxes, speeding up the loss of faith of those still struggling to survive.

The entire Survival+ analysis focuses on the multilayered ways the middle class is being squeezed to exhaustion / insolvency. I began addressing the first step of this process last year-- a process which begins When Belief in the System Fades (March 12, 2008).

I then added further analysis as part of the Survival+ project (eBook to be released for free July 4, 2009): Survival+ 10: When Belief in the System Fades (April 9, 2009)

The fundamental theses:

1. taxes are crushingly high in the U.S. for small business, and the supposed "low tax rates" are propaganda/disinformation

2. systemic disincentives include overregulation, a tort/legal system run amok and insanely overpriced healthcare costs

3. an overlapping series of parasitic fees, levies, licensing, etc. burden the productive class while evading the label of "tax"

4. The Plutocracy and State (two sides of the same coin) have overreached in grabbing ever-larger shares of the national income, and they need the middle class to believe in the system and keep paying the taxes needed to support the State's overreach.

How MI5 blackmails British Muslims

Five Muslim community workers have accused MI5 of waging a campaign of blackmail and harassment in an attempt to recruit them as informants.

The men claim they were given a choice of working for the Security Service or face detention and harassment in the UK and overseas.

They have made official complaints to the police, to the body which oversees the work of the Security Service and to their local MP Frank Dobson. Now they have decided to speak publicly about their experiences in the hope that publicity will stop similar tactics being used in the future.

Intelligence gathered by informers is crucial to stopping further terror outrages, but the men's allegations raise concerns about the coercion of young Muslim men by the Security Service and the damage this does to the gathering of information in the future.

Lebanon Targets Israeli Spy Cells

BEIRUT - Nearly 20 suspected spies, including a butcher, a mobile phone salesman and a retired general, have been detained in recent months as part of a long-running probe by Lebanese intelligence into Israeli sleeper cells.

And more arrests are expected, security officials say.

The pace of the probe picked up significantly in April after investigators stumbled upon a cell planning to infiltrate the security apparatus of Lebanon's powerful Hezbollah.

Intelligence officials said they told Hezbollah about their discovery. From that point on the spy rings began to tumble like a house of cards.

"The suspects arrested were part of different cells, each numbering three people at the most, and were not connected," said General Ashraf Rifi, head of the Internal Security Forces.

"What helped us a lot is that we managed to uncover a technological secret which allowed us to put together the puzzle."


Rifi said Israel recruited most of the agents -- Christians, Sunnis or Shiites -- in the 1980s and 1990s during its 22-year occupation of southern Lebanon which ended in 2000.

"They used beautiful women, money and other bait to lure people into working for them," he said.

"They would pay them handsomely, say 5,000 to 7,000 dollars for their first mission. After that, Israel would drop the price significantly as it had these people hooked and would threaten to expose them unless they cooperated.

"Families and friends of most of the agents had no clue as to their double life."

4 Arrested in plot to bomb NYC Targets

NEW YORK - Four men arrested after planting what they thought were explosives near a synagogue and community center and plotting to shoot down a military plane were bent on carrying out a jihad against America, authorities said Thursday.

The suspects were arrested Wednesday night, shortly after planting a mock explosive device in the trunk of a car outside the Riverdale Temple and two mock bombs in the backseat of a car outside the Jewish Center, authorities said.

At a news conference outside the Bronx temple, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly quoted one of the men as saying, "If Jews were killed in this attack ... that would be all right."

UNESCO and the NWO: In their own words

This is a good description of what is happening. These are the correct verbs: detach, divert, force, suck, pump. Exactly right. We are being raped. - Ed.


In order to further inspire this detachment of humans from their own tribe- and divert this natural inclination towards a sense of world citizenry- replacing the tribe for the ‘global tribe’- a great propaganda-infrastructure was forced into being, with a special seat reserved in it for the mass media to incrementally commence with the brainwashing. The globalists have meanwhile spread their tentacles very wide indeed, in an attempt to suck out our survival instincts ’stage by stage’, and pumping human creative energy straight into their desired new world order.

The question as to whether they will succeed depends entirely on the capability of the ‘target audiences’ to resist the constant stream of propaganda. And this capability of course will depend for a large part on the effectiveness of the information war we are waging.

Egypt warns of swine flu threat to Mecca pilgrims

CAIRO - Egyptian Health Minister Hatem al-Gabali warned in a newspaper interview on Wednesday of the dangers posed by swine flu to millions of Muslim pilgrims travelling to Saudi Arabia.

The minister said the government could not bar Egyptian pilgrims from travelling because the decision had to be made by Muslim clerics, but that the authorities could quarantine returning pilgrims.

Gabali told the independent daily Al-Masri Al-Yom that "there is a large possibility" the A(H1N1) virus, which has killed 80 people and infected roughly 10,000 in 39 countries, may reach Egypt with returning pilgrims.

Egypt, which is culling the country's 250,000 pigs, has not recorded any cases of infection so far.

What's Netanyahu really afraid of?

The conclusion, but go read the whole thing:

The crux of the issue is that, Netanyahu, Israel’s military, and the War Party in the U.S. all believe that an Iran equipped with the technological capability for enriching uranium would have a credible nuclear deterrent and, therefore, would be unattackable. That scenario, as Thomas P.M. Barnett, the author of The Pentagon’s New Map: War and Peace in the Twenty-First Century, has put it, "would level the playing field by finally allowing the Muslim Middle East to sit one player at the negotiating table as Israel’s nuclear equal." Thus, Israel would no longer be able to force its will on its neighbors, a prospect that is not acceptable to the Israeli establishment and the American War Party.

Such a scenario would also have another consequence. A situation in which Israel’s government maintains a permanent state of war with its neighbors, but in which Israel and the Muslims are in equilibrium militarily, would halt immigration to Israel, even reverse it. That would be the ultimate existential threat to Israel. The only realistic way to prevent this from happening is for Israel to reach a just peace with the Palestinians and Syria and give up the dream of controlling the Litani River. But, Netanyahu, the Likud, and the Israeli establishment are incapable of making these happen, and the progressive forces that could force such a solution have practically disappeared from Israel’s political scene.

Our man at Bilderberg: Let's salt the slug in 2010


But these worries are small potatoes compared with the biggest concern Bilderberg 09 has given me. My experience over the last several days in Greece has granted me a single, diamond-hard opinion. Meaning I now have two: that John McEnroe is the greatest sportsman of all time; and that we must fight, fight, fight, now – right now, this second, with every cubic inch of our souls – to stop identity cards.

I can tell you right now that the argument "If I've done nothing wrong, why would I worry about showing who I am?" is hogwash. Worse than that, it's horse hockey. It's all about the power to ask, the obligation to show, the justification of one's existence, the power of the asker over the subservience of the asked. (Did you know that most Greek police don't wear a number? This is an obligation that goes one way.)

I have learned this from the random searches, detentions, angry security goon proddings and thumped police desks without number that I've had to suffer on account of Bilderberg: I have spent the week living in a nightmare possible future and many different terrible pasts. I have had the very tiniest glimpse into a world of spot checks and unchecked security powers. And it has left me shaken. It has left me, literally, bruised.

I can tell you this from personal experience: the onus upon the individual to carry with them some external proof of their identity is transformative of his or her status as a human being. The identity card turns you from a free citizen into a suspect. It is a spanner with which to beat the individual around the head. It is the end of everything. And how much easier to put all that information inside a microchip so you don't have to carry around that pesky card all the time. How much more efficient!

From WaPost (reader beware): Swine flu spreading in Japan, despite quarantine inspections

TOKYO, May 19 -- To stop swine flu before it could sneak off airplanes arriving from North America, Japan dispatched masked health inspectors with fever-sensing guns to walk among passengers.

But the flu has taken hold in this island nation anyway, with rapidly increasing numbers of confirmed cases in its western region. It is now inevitable, experts said, that the H1N1 virus will spread to the Tokyo-Yokohama metropolitan area, where about 35 million people live and commuters are packed cheek to jowl daily on a vast network of trains and buses.

The Apocalypse continues. The ‘revealing’ goes on. Tangentially, we note indications that those who thought they were pulling the strings are dancing on strings of their own. Things long hidden are crawling out of hibernation and it is the public rather than the emerging sleepers who are rubbing their eyes.

As the good within us begins to glow in the embers of what we used to be, ever more toxic evils display themselves. This evil cannot see its downfall made certain in the boundless arrogance of its behavior. The Apocalypse is a time of madness and we are seeing it on all sides.

American Gothic Prediction from January 2006

I just stumbled across this while looking into the Sy Hersh/Dick Cheney/Benazir Bhutto story. Click through for the details.

In July of 1999, the woman with whom I was romantically involved at that time -- call her Gabrielle -- woke up, woke me up, and announced that she had just had an exceptionally vivid dream. A prophetic dream.

A dream in which airplanes flew into the World Trade Center -- "or buildings like the World Trade Center."


Naturally, I wanted to know who would commit such an act. "It won't be who they say it is," she answered.

She mentioned that there would be a war in Iraq as a result, even though Iraq would not be responsible. (She also mentioned Saudi Arabia, but the reference was quite vague. I could not discern how that country figured into this scenario.)


Before continuing, I should fill in some more backstory.

In the mid-1990s, before she met me, Gabrielle had had a series of troubling dreams depicting a "small" nuclear explosion in Chicago. In each dream, she viewed the event from a closer perspective. In one dream, she saw it from the point of view of a reporter flying in a commercial airliner not far from the event.

Naturally, I wanted to know if the New York event was connected with the nuclear event in Chicago. Yes, she said. In a way. But the explosion in Chicago would happen later.


Would the same people be responsible for both events, I asked?

Not really, she answered, although the events are linked. In both cases, she emphasized, "it won't be who they say it is."


"Yes and no. It's like people from the government are involved. Or at least they know about it."

She said that the public would be told that Iran was responsible for the Chicago event. "After that, it's World War Three."

She intimated that things would not play out the way "they" planned, and that the war would spin out of all control.

I asked for more details about the "small" nuclear event in Chicago. She mentioned the Sears tower.

Water played a role in the scenario she envisioned; the device would be transported via boat. I reminded her that Chicago is on one of the Great Lakes. (For some reason, I couldn't remember which one!) She said that the boat would not be on a lake. "You know those movable bridges?" she asked. One of those bridges had something to do with the event.

"You know that picture of the farmer and his wife?" she asked. I took this as a reference to Grant Wood's American Gothic, which I once saw on loan in San Francisco. (Incidentally, the woman in the painting is actually the man's sister.) I vaguely recalled that the work's "home" is in Chicago. She felt that the painting would be destroyed by the blast, and that we would subsequently see the image reproduced ad infinitum in news accounts.

(One doesn't need ESP to foresee how the lost work would take on symbolic, even propagandistic, value.)

Since her unusual trance-like state might never occur again, I attempted to pinpoint a date for these events. She could give neither year nor month, although she insisted that the Chicago event would occur after the fall of the skyscrapers in New York City. (She did not intimate how long after; for some reason, I came under the impression that the two events would occur within fairly quick order.)


"When the bomb goes off in Chicago, do you see snow?" She didn't. It won't happen in the winter.

The American War on Pakistan

by Zahir Ebrahim


Note that “The drug smugglers left without casualties,” after inflicting heavy fatalities on Iran's Elite Army. The same way that a rag-tag bunch of illiterate Talibans are now holding off the elite Pakistan Army, and that too after surviving 8 years of intense bombardment by NATO and American forces. A super-human bunch of “drug-smugglers” aren't they, and quite a super-human bunch of antediluvian “Afghanis”! In any other epoch, their nom de guerre surely would have been “Ali Baba, and their formidable weapons of world-conquest their magical flying carpets. See the detailed deconstruction of this super-human “Ali Baba” smugglers who can hold Iran hostage in “Letter to Editor: Iran, the Associated Press, and Covert-War of 'Imperial Mobilization'. In Pakistan's case, the only rational explanation for “Ali Baba's” formidable prowess in the 21st century based on the empiricism of political-science, the historical record of the hectoring hegemons, and the self-evident reality in the right-field while the public is kept distracted in the left-field, is that NATO and American black-ops are fighting the Pakistan Army to depopulate the region and to create the well-known 'Strategy of Tension'.

US health officials "troubled" by new flu pattern

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The new influenza strain circulating around most of the United States is putting a worrying number of young adults and children into the hospital and hitting more schools than usual, U.S. health officials said on Monday.

The H1N1 swine flu virus killed a vice principal at a New York City school over the weekend and has spread to 48 states. While it appears to be mild, it is affecting a disproportionate number of children, teenagers and young adults.

This includes people needing hospitalization -- now up to 200, said Dr. Anne Schuchat of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"That's very unusual, to have so many people under 20 to require hospitalization, and some of them in (intensive care units)," Schuchat told reporters in a telephone briefing.

Russia to hand over captured pirates to 3rd party

Who are the pirates, and who is the third party? Ha. It's a Big Secret. Now why would that be? - Ed.

MOSCOW, May 19 (RIA Novosti) - Pirates seized by the Russian Navy will be transferred to a third party, the first deputy defense minister said on Tuesday.

"In accordance with existing law, pirates seized by Russian naval forces during patrols will be transferred to a third party," Col. Gen. Alexander Kolmakov said, without specifying which country might accept the pirates.

Twenty-nine suspected pirates were taken on board a Russian warship last month after carrying out an unsuccessful hijack attempt on a Liberian-flagged and Russian-crewed tanker.

Russia has found it difficult to find a country willing to take the detainees, and a deputy to the prosecutor general said last Tuesday that Somali pirates could be prosecuted under Russian laws.

The 13 people who made torture possible

by Marcy Wheeler

May 18, 2009 | On April 16, the Obama administration released four memos that were used to authorize torture in interrogations during the Bush administration. When President Obama released the memos, he said, "It is our intention to assure those who carried out their duties relying in good faith upon legal advice from the Department of Justice that they will not be subject to prosecution."

Yet 13 key people in the Bush administration cannot claim they relied on the memos from the DOJ's Office of Legal Counsel. Some of the 13 manipulated the federal bureaucracy and the legal process to "preauthorize" torture in the days after 9/11. Others helped implement torture, and still others helped write the memos that provided the Bush administration with a legal fig leaf after torture had already begun.

Israel warns of Facebook 'spies'

OMG like once, like, eight years ago?, like, this Israeli guy?, you know, he like got lured by this Palestinian woman he met on the internet?, you know, and, like, she killed him. Mmm hmm. So seriously. Be careful. - Ed.

Israel's internal intelligence service urged the public today to exercise caution when using Facebook, saying Arabs are trying to recruit spies on the popular social networking site.

The Shin Bet security agency warned Israelis against answering unsolicited messages or sharing telephone numbers and other sensitive information over the Internet. It said there have been numerous incidents recently in which violent groups tried to recruit Israelis through Facebook and other networking sites.

The agency said in one instance an Israeli Facebook user was contacted by a man who introduced himself as a Lebanese agent and offered money for information about Israel.

The Shin Bet said Israelis should be wary of seemingly innocent meetings or dates proposed online by people they don't know. These messages might be posted by militants with intention to kidnap or kill, it said.

"Terror organizations are using these sites to tempt Israelis to meet up in person in order to either abduct them, kill them or recruit them as spies," the Shin Bet said.

An Israeli teenager was killed eight years ago when he was lured to the West Bank by a young woman he met on the Internet.

One in every 25 people born are psychopaths.

How, do you think, these people can get a good night's sleep if they were in any way troubled by the outright murder and mayhem - of innocents - they have caused? (Think Afghanistan, think Iraq, think Lebanon)

If you keep the bloodlines pure (as these families do), that missing gene will never return. Therefore all subsequent children will be psychopaths.

It doesn't get talked about much, but paper currency -- the dollars, fives, 10s and 20s most people routinely touch every day -- can spread viruses from one person to another. So if you have contact with money that an infected individual has also handled, there's a possibility of catching the flu.

How likely is that? Despite the pervasiveness of cash in society, its role in transmitting illness has been the subject of surprisingly little study. But some recent research suggests that flu bugs can show some staying power when they land on one of the countless bank notes that change hands every day.

2009 swine flu outbreak timeline and the "hate crimes" act

April 1--The first reported case of swine flu in the US is in San Diego.

April 2--HR 1913, the "Hate Crimes" Act is introduced in the US House.

Between April 2 and the 27th, disinfo outlets like CNN and FOX go on a 24/7 hysteria fest, barking like mad dogs who just snorted some meth about the swine flu. Major media outlets like the New York Times didn't see fit to report on the Hate Crimes legislation until April 29.

Guess the Times was too busy spending money and time on the dozens of stories they ran about the swine flu.

During this time, the ADL is busy behind the scenes, cajoling, threatening and maybe even bribing the House to pass the ADL's Hate Crime Laws.

Silent as Death

In the aftermath of the infamous interview with Bp. Richard Williamson earlier this year where he stated with both straight face and clear conscience his belief that “holocaust” history as it has been told now for the last half century is much like any other production coming out of Jewish Hollywood–meaning a work of fiction designed to propagandize the masses–the world was inundated with minute-by-minute/how-by-hour breaking news reports.

Numbering in the millions in terms of dollars, man hours and words spoken, it should be remembered that the well-organized campaign of screeching and howling on the part of Jewish interests concerning the Great Holocaust Heresies of Bp Williamson took place in the midst of an economic meltdown truly apocalyptic in its scope and at a time when America finds herself in the midst of 2 disastrous wars with several more on the back burner just waiting to boil over. Judging by the scale, volume and shrill nature of the reports one would have assumed the world was about to be consumed in a heaven-sent ball of fire with all life on earth destroyed.

The mean drunk may very well be a sociopath

Learn about the -paths and teach your family and friends. This is the information that brings everything into focus. - Ed.

Ever wondered why some, or most people become happy when they drink while a few become really mean and nasty. Well, those mean and nasty drunks that become verbally and even physically abusive may just have an Antisocial Personality Disorder such as psychopathy/sociopathy. Below an older article of interest on the subject and below that a more recent Finnish study.
(Please note: Talking about a pattern here, the same behavior repeating itself time and time again.)

Why the Caged Bird Sang

Some thoughts on why Dick Cheney is such a chatty patty lately after being inexplicably terse for the past eight years. Of course, it could be so that he provides a foil to Obama, you know, make him look much less evil in comparison while he goes about following the same damn policies. - Ed.

Dick Cheney has been doing a lot of talking lately. From his most recent barrage of public statements, we have gleaned that he loves Rush Limbaugh, doesn't much care for Colin Powell, believes President Obama is about to sell the Sixth Fleet to the Taliban for pennies on the dollar and thinks torture is a nifty and effective tool that saves lives and defends freedom. Really, this isn't anything we haven't heard before from our growly, snarly, face-blasting former vice president. But it does beg the question: What the hell is he up to? NPR's Ron Elving posited the question in a Wednesday article titled "What is Dick Cheney Trying to Accomplish?"

Saudi 'killer chip' implant would track, eliminate undesirables

It could be the ultimate in political control — but it won’t be patented in Germany.

German media outlets reported last week that a Saudi inventor’s application to patent a “killer chip,” as the Swiss tabloids put it, had been denied.

The basic model would consist of a tiny GPS transceiver placed in a capsule and inserted under a person’s skin, so that authorities could track him easily.

Model B would have an extra function — a dose of cyanide to remotely kill the wearer without muss or fuss if authorities deemed he’d become a public threat.

The inventor said the chip could be used to track terrorists, criminals, fugitives, [also these people, OBVIOUSLY just as dangerous as terrorists criminals and fugitives:] illegal immigrants, political dissidents, domestic servants and foreigners overstaying their visas.

AIPAC's hidden persuaders

A map contained in a brochure distributed at an AIPAC meeting.

‘The Israel lobby is aiming to soften up US public opinion for an attack on Iran,’ writes Richard Silverstein, ‘Americans should resist its propaganda’.

Despite the ballyhoo of the recent Aipac national policy conference in Washington, when Israel-US bonds were feted, relations between the two countries are currently more strained than at any time since 1991. That was when the elder George Bush, as US president, fiercely lobbied Yitzchak Shamir to join in the Madrid peace conference. Relations then reached their nadir when James Baker uttered his infamous remark about Israel’s American-Jewish supporters: “Fuck the Jews, they don’t even vote for us.”

Humans ate the neanderthals into extinction

PARIS, FRANCE - Anthropologists have long been baffled by the mysterious disapearance of the Neanderthals about 30,000 years ago. But one expert thinks he has the answer - we ate them.

Reported in the Journal of Anthropological Sciences, the conclusion is based on markings found on a Neanderthal jawbone found in Les Rois, in south-west France. Cuts on the bone look remarkably similar to those found on deer and other animals butchered by humans.
