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?

9 of 10 rapid tests to diagnose swine flu are wrong, so they stopped counting, but you still need the shot

Let's call the Whole Thing Off, shall we? - ed.

According to MSNBC, the CDC has found that rapid tests to diagnose the “swine flu” can be wrong as much as nine times out of ten. The “best” test was wrong half the time, the CDC found.

The government study indicating that rapid tests to diagnose the “swine flu” could hardly distinguish between the “swine flu” and normal seasonal flu gives support to those medical experts who say the “swine flu” is a harmless, ordinary flu that is being hyped by the WHO and the vaccine companies to justify a pandemic level 6 declaration and mass forced vaccinations.

CDC halts death tallies from H1N1 swine flu virus

Citing the widespread nature of the H1N1 swine flu virus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced on Friday their intention to cease keeping a running count of the dead.
In a decision that may complicate how the American public gets information on the lethality of the H1N1 swine flu virus - particularly during the upcoming flu season - the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced on Friday that they will no longer track deaths caused by the swine flu virus. The official CDC toll in the U.S. will remain 302 dead. Health officials from the CDC said the virus was too widespread to continue counting.

Barak hints at another war with Lebanon

Israeli Defense Minister hints at Tel Aviv's intention to launch another offensive against Lebanon, saying the war would be more devastating than the 2006 war.

"We cannot accept that a neighboring UN member state should have in its government representatives of a militia that has more than 40,000 rockets," Ehud Barak said Thursday referring to Lebanon's Hezbollah resistance movement.

The Jewish hand behind the internet

In the following document we will give an insight into the Jewish penetration of the Internet and also show the level of cooperation between leading Jewish Internet entrepreneurs and the racist Jewish Apartheid state of Israel.

The Jews - contrary to the "liberal" views they officially say they profess - in their suppressive acts practically demonstrate that they always seek to dominate the information flow, they don´t tolerate any dissent. It is just as when Israel says "Shalom" while Israel´s military at the very same time pounds its Arab neighbour states with bombs and missiles.

The Arabs have learnt the hard way the faleshood of these Jewish statements, it is now time for the rest of the non-Jewish world to get this right, and to see that the freedom of information on the Net is seriously threatened.

Traumatised children struggle to rise again

BREJ, Gaza, Aug 5 (IPS) - Tens of thousands of children in Gaza are still suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) following Israel's three-week bombing December- January.

Several crisis counselling teams run by international organisations and NGOs have been carrying out intervention programmes aimed at helping Gaza's most vulnerable put the pieces of their lives back together.

But these groups warn that while there has been some improvement in the collective psyche of Gaza's children, the long-term effects of war are now beginning to show, and unless the rights of Gazans are respected, the next generation's future will be hard to predict.

People of conscience stand up and be counted

Having to peddle "government lies" about the safety of soldiers in Iraq led to a Ministry of Defence press officer suffering post-traumatic stress disorder, an employment tribunal will hear.

John Salisbury-Baker will claim that he suffered "intolerable stress" through having to "defend the morally indefensible" when responding to media inquiries about the ability of army vehicles such as the "Snatch" Land Rover to protect soldiers.

Mr Salisbury-Baker, 62, says he found it impossible to support the official line on deaths and injuries after seeing the suffering of soldiers' families. After 11 years of service at Imphal Barracks near York, he could no longer keep working and is taking legal action against the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

Jews in the News - indicator that the US is officially at war with the Jewish State?

An old saying goes thus–“Even a broken clock is right twice a day” which (as impossible as it sounds) includes even those irrational, mentally-deranged individuals within the Jewish supremacist community whose 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th answer to all questions–past, preset and future and irrespective of the topic of discussion is always “anti-Semitism”.

In this case, the reading on that broken coo-coo clock that never seems to get it right deals with the now-infamous arrest of 5 New Jersey rabbis caught up in the usual business of La Kosher Nostra–meaning money laundering, extortion, bribing of public officials and the trafficking of human body parts–and the charge by certain elements in Israel that the FBI’s high-profile arrest was all part of an “anti-Semitic ploy” designed to makes Americans realize they collectively are playing the role performed by actor Michael Douglass in the blockbuster movie Fatal Attraction who finds himself in bed with a crazy woman capable of doing anything in getting what she wants.

Terrorism in Bulverde - A true story of satellite surveillance

Great. - Ed.

In what first starts like a bizarre cloak-and-dagger tale and turns into something from a sci-fi movie, ends up being the true story of terrorism endured on an epic scale by a Bulverde resident, his loved ones and friends. Who is watching over us? A threat is stalking us and we don't even know it. After years of research and fighting for his life and of those he loved, Bulverde resident and new author Dr. John Hall brings this terrifying account of real life events to the masses in his first book, "A New Breed: Satellite Terrorism in America" which tells what happens when Big Brother goes too far. The events Hall writes about didn't occur in some distant land or in a place like New York where criminal activity may be far greater, nor did the victims have knowledge of secret information or criminal activity that may have made them a risk. They are ordinary people... living in communities like Bulverde, Alamo Heights, San Antonio, and elsewhere that are experiencing a new form of stalking and surveillance... a new form of terrorism that is unseen. So what is the connection? Why would an average person be under surveillance? The answer to both questions may be: It is more random than you think and has to do with a vulnerability factor.

Jewish security network meets with DHS Chief

Leaders of the Secure Community Network met Wednesday in Washington with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. SCN, which coordinates security for North American Jewish institutions, has been working with DHS for a while on security training and assessments, but this was the first meeting with Napolitano since she took office earlier this year.

Representatives of the Conference of Presidents and the United Jewish Communities, the two organizations which created SCN, as well as leaders of some other Jewish umbrella groups were part of the session. They discussed the "concerns the community has over the spike in incidents" directed at the Jewish community in recent months, said SCN national director Paul Goldenberg. "The last six months have been extraordinary months for the Jewish community."

Among the incidents Goldenberg is referring to are the plot to bomb a Riverdale synagogue, the killing of a Wesleyan University student allegedly by a killer carrying anti-Semitic literature, the killing of a security guard at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and a suspect in the shooting at a Little Rock military recruiting center also planning to target Jewish sites.

"We talked about continued cooperation," said Goldenberg. The department "has been working side-by-side with SCN to share intelligence information." [OH I BET. -ed.]

Here's SCN's press release on the meeting, after the jump:

Ridiculous. Flu is a matter of homeland security? What about measles? Or athlete’s foot?
Why not make obesity a matter of homeland security? At least then there would be an excuse for shutting down the fast-food industry, or making citizens wear muzzles to keep them from eating anything larger than a pea. Obesity, after all, is acknowledged by the pharmaceutical industry to be disadvantageous to enjoying good health; they should know, spending millions to find yet another pill to help people lose weight. Fat people can’t run from terrorists, or fight them in the streets. Yes, obesity might be the one place Homeland Security could make a cogent case for labeling a physical disorder a security threat.

Squalene: swine flu vaccine's dirty little secrets exposed

Will There Be Immune Adjuvants in Swine Flu Vaccines?

The U.S. government has contracts with several drug companies to develop and produce swine flu vaccines. At least two of those companies, Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline, are using an adjuvant in their H1N1 vaccines.

The adjuvant? Squalene.

According to Meryl Nass, M.D., an authority on the anthrax vaccine,

“A novel feature of the two H1N1 vaccines being developed by companies Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline is the addition of squalene-containing adjuvants to boost immunogenicity and dramatically reduce the amount of viral antigen needed. This translates to much faster production of desired vaccine quantities.”[v]

Diseased African monkeys used to make swine flu vaccines, private military contractor holds key patents

(NaturalNews) To most people, vaccines sound medically harmless. "They're good for you!" say the doctors and drug companies, but they never really talk about what's in those vaccines. There's a good reason for that: If people knew what was really in those vaccines, they would never allow themselves to be injected with them.

Aside from the dangerous ingredients many people already know about (like squalene or thimerosal), one of the key ingredients used in flu vaccines (including the vaccines being prepared for the swine flu pandemic) is the diseased flesh of African Green Monkeys. This is revealed in U.S. patent No. 5911998 - Method of producing a virus vaccine from an African green monkey kidney cell line. (

plans for forced vaccinations in various countries

entire s. korean military

SEOUL, Aug. 3 (Yonhap) -- South Korea plans to start vaccinating its entire 655,000-strong military against type-A influenza at the end of November, a defense official said Monday.


The army in Switzerland is starting to stockpile “swine flu” vaccines as it gears up for a mass forced vaccination of the Swiss population in autumn, according to a report in the Basler Zeitung.


Greece will vaccinate its entire population of 12 million against the H1N1 swine flu pandemic which has swept around the world in weeks, killing hundreds of people, the country's health minister said on Friday.

Hezbollah stockpiles 40,000 rockets near Israel border

Three years after Israel fought a bloody war in Lebanon against Hezbollah, there are fears that hostilities could erupt again — this time with the militant group better armed than ever.

According to Israeli, United Nations and Hezbollah officials, the Shia Muslim militia is stronger than it was in 2006 when it took on the Israeli army in a war that killed 1,191 Lebanese and 43 Israeli civilians.

Hezbollah has up to 40,000 rockets and is training its forces to use ground-to-ground missiles capable of hitting Tel Aviv, and anti-aircraft missiles that could challenge Israel’s dominance of the skies over Lebanon.

psychopath joe lieberman peddling the lie that we will be *forced* to attack Iran

Launching a military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities will be the “only one choice” left for the United States if new economic sanctions fail to convince Tehran to halt its bomb-making program, according to Sen. Joseph Lieberman.

Only through “crippling sanctions do we have a chance to convince the Iranians to stop this nuclear weapons program,” Lieberman, an independent Democrat from Connecticut, told the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee. Stiffer sanctions are necessary in order to “save ourselves” from having to make the most difficult choice, which he said was “doing nothing in regard to a nuclear Iran, and taking military action.”

Profiling CEOs and their sociopathic paychecks

by Thom Hartmann

Wall Street Journal reported last week that "Executives and other highly compensated employees now receive more than one-third of all pay in the US... Highly paid employees received nearly $2.1 trillion of the $6.4 trillion in total US pay in 2007, the latest figures available."

One of the questions often asked when the subject of CEO pay comes up is, "What could a person such as William McGuire or Lee Raymond (the former CEOs of UnitedHealth and ExxonMobil, respectively) possibly do to justify a $1.7 billion paycheck or a $400 million retirement bonus?"

It's an interesting question. If there is a "free market" of labor for CEOs, then you'd think there would be a lot of competition for the jobs. And a lot of people competing for the positions would drive down the pay. All UnitedHealth's stockholders would have to do to avoid paying more than $1 billion to McGuire is find somebody to do the same CEO job for half a billion. And all they'd have to do to save even more is find somebody to do the job for a mere $100 million. Or maybe even somebody who'd work the necessary sixty-hour weeks for only $1 million.

So why is executive pay so high?

I've examined this with both my psychotherapist hat on and my amateur economist hat on, and only one rational answer presents itself: CEOs in America make as much money as they do because there really is a shortage of people with their skill set. And it's such a serious shortage that some companies have to pay as much as $1 million a day to have somebody successfully do the job.

But what part of being a CEO could be so difficult-so impossible for mere mortals-that it would mean that there are only a few hundred individuals in the United States capable of performing it?

In my humble opinion, it's the sociopath part.

CEOs of community-based businesses are typically responsive to their communities and decent people. But the CEOs of most of the world's largest corporations daily make decisions that destroy the lives of many other human beings.

The problem with the "responsibility to protect"

By Jean Bricmont

[Jean Bricmont teaches physics in Belgium and is a member of the Brussels Tribunal. His new book, Humanitarian Imperialism, is published by Monthly Review Press.]

On July 23, a debate concerning the Responsibility to Protect took place in front of the General Asssembly of the United Nations. The responsibility to protect (R2P) is a notion agreed to by world leaders in 2005, that holds States responsible for shielding their own populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing, and related crimes against humanity, requiring the international community to step in if this obligation is not met. This last point is suspected to be related to the right of humanitarian intervention » and is the source of many debates.The discussion was initiated by General Assembly President Miguel DEscoto (from Nicaragua) and gathered Noam Chomsky, Gareth Evans, a supporter of R2P, former Foreign Minister of Australia and, until recently, president of the International Crisis Group, Ngugi wa Thiong’o, a prominent African writer and defender of human rights, and myself. Here is the text of my speech

I would like, in this talk, to challenge the intellectual assumptions underlying the notion and the rhetoric of R2P. In a nutshell, my thesis will be that the main obstacle to the implementation of a genuine R2P are precisely the policies and the attitudes of the countries that are most enthusiastic about this doctrine, namely the Western countries, and in particular the US.

The strategy of tension: NATO's hidden terrorism

This strategy is still present today, inspiring fear for the Islam and justifying wars on oil.

World's largest science group rejecting man-made climate fears

An outpouring of skeptical scientists who are members of the American Chemical Society (ACS) are revolting against the group's editor-in-chief -- with some demanding he be removed -- after an editorial appeared claiming “the science of anthropogenic climate change is becoming increasingly well established.”

The editorial claimed the "consensus" view was growing "increasingly difficult to challenge, despite the efforts of diehard climate-change deniers.” The editor now admits he is "startled" by the negative reaction from the group's scientific members. The American Chemical Society bills itself as the "world's largest scientific society."

The June 22, 2009 editorial in Chemical and Engineering News by editor in chief Rudy Baum, is facing widespread blowback and condemnation from American Chemical Society member scientists. Baum concluded his editorial by stating that “deniers” are attempting to “derail meaningful efforts to respond to global climate change.”

Dozens of letters were published on July 27, 2009 castigating Baum, with some scientists calling for his replacement as editor-in-chief.

The editorial was met with a swift, passionate and scientific rebuke from Baum's colleagues. Virtually all of the letters published on July 27 in castigated Baum's climate science views. Scientists rebuked Baum's use of the word “deniers” because of the terms “association with Holocaust deniers.” In addition, the scientists called Baum's editorial: “disgusting”; “a disgrace”; “filled with misinformation”; “unworthy of a scientific periodical” and “pap.”

One outraged ACS member wrote to Baum: "When all is said and done, and you and your kind are proven wrong (again), you will have moved on to be an unthinking urn for another rat pleading catastrophe. You will be removed. I promise."

Acts of God? Depends on who you worship.

I wrote this in April. - ed.


Does it still sound crazy?

X-wars are being fought that make it look like nature or God is doing it. The masses of people believe they are in relative peace, not realizing that the earthquake that killed thousands was not accidental. State-of-the-art military technology uses the earth itself as a weapon. World War Three has probably started and we don’t even know it. Chemtrail spraying appears to compromise our immune systems. It may be lowering our resistance to both disease and to the removal of our basic rights. Aerosols are also being sprayed to seed the atmosphere with barium. The HAARP Patent calls for spraying barium in the atmosphere to increase HAARP’s efficacy. HAARP is capable of more than you are likely to believe. HAARP quadrupled its power and published plans call for operating HAARP at one billion watts. HAARP can cause massive blackouts. Its inventor Bernard Eastlund seeks to abort tornadoes and to "steer' parts of the ionosphere around with it, among other things.
Here's an expanded definition of X Wars, from this source:
"Special secret mode of conducting wars. This concept was developed, when it became clear that direct military conflict will inevitably result in nuclear self-destruction. Then the idea appeared that the battle can be conducted while pretending that the conditions of peace are being maintained. In fact, the war is going on, but by the other, "quiet" means. They include the methods of economic and financial diversions, information-psychological technologies aimed at degrading the social structure of the attacked people. Biological diversions infected cattle or agricultural plants or even people, not by some disease causing death, but by an infection planting panic and confusion within the society. Certainly, technical devices causing accidents not only to planes, but to power systems might be created. During the period of "Cold War" much money was invested into the development of the X-war methods and technologies."
We've seen all this stuff. It is happening and has been happening, and it dovetails into the various theological end-times scenarios. Our leaders have secretly developed and deployed technologies that allow them to manipulate the weather, for example, to the point that they can cause earthquakes, droughts, and floods. They have secretly developed diseases in laboratories specifically designed to harm certain populations. They have the perfect diabolical cover for their crimes: these unfortunate events are simply Acts of God.

Dr. Ott: evidence of actual origins of 2009 "pandemic influenza"

In March of 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) announced an outbreak of "Swine Flu" in Mexico and in Southern California. Within a few months, the "outbreak" increased in scope resulting in the WHO issuing a "Level 6 - PANDEMIC" alert.
Both the WHO and the CDC announced in April, that the influenza virus responsible for the "pandemic" is a "novel triple reassortant virus" that combines H1N1 (swine) virus with H5N1 (avian) virus and Human flu virus, (H3N2). Press releases sent to the major media outlets of the United States, Canada, and the U.K. further declared that such a "triple virus" had never been seen before, that it was "Novel" (i.e. completely new.)
This information is patently and absolutely FALSE. According to the CDC's own magazine, "Emerging Infectious Diseases", outbreaks of a "novel reassortant triple virus" have been occurring since 2005. These outbreaks were just as significant as the California and Mexican cases, but for some reason, it was not reported in the mainstream media.

Refusing vaccinations labels you a 'criminal' so says WHO

The World Health Organization determined in 2005 it has the authority to dissolve sovereign governments and take control should there be a “pandemic”. This applies to any country signed onto WHO….which of course we are. The WHO just raised this non-existent pandemic to level 4. From the WHO 2005 declaration: (excerpted) “ Under special pandemic plans enacted around the world including the USA, in 2005, national governments are to be dissolved in the event of a pandemic emergency and replaced by special crisis committees, which take charge of the health and security infrastructure of a country, and which are answerable to the WHO and EU in Europe and to the WHO and UN in North America.

Jane Burgermeister describes visit to Baxter

Germany’s alternative media is increasingly reporting on Baxter, WHO and also on legislation allowing forced vaccination in Germany, such as paragraph §20 of the German Law on Infection Protection which cancels basic civic rights in the event of a pandemic “emergency”.

This morning I recorded an interview with Michael Vogt. After that, I went to visit Baxter’s facilities on Orth an der Donau with Thomas Pfeiffer and Markus Wolf from Grenz tv to take a closer look at the place where 72 kilos of seasonal flu material was manufactured and contaminated with live bird flu virus (courtesy of WHO) this February before being sent out to 16 labs in four countries, nearly sparking a pandemic.

If you check out Baxter’s facilities on the Uferstrasse in Orth an der Donau using Google satellite maps, you will get some idea of just how large the complex is — and also how isolated.

Israeli settlers 'are wrecking the peace process'

Britain has accused Israel of allowing extremist Jewish settlers to disrupt attempts at relaunching the peace process after police evicted more than 50 Palestinians from their homes in Jerusalem.

As Jewish settlers moved into the Palestinian homes, the British consulate said it was appalled by the evictions, which took place a few hundred yards from the diplomatic mission, after an Israeli court decided in favour of the settlers.

“Israel’s claim that the imposition of extremist Jewish settlers into this ancient Arab neighbourhood is a matter for the courts or the municipality is entirely unacceptable,” the consulate said in a statement. “Their actions are incompatible with Israel’s desire for peace. We urge Israel not to allow extremists to set the agenda.”

The evictions came at a sensitive time, with the US Administration pushing a reluctant right-wing Israeli government towards a freeze on new settlements in Palestinian areas, in the hope of reviving peace talks.
