Taxes Squandered On Nagging People Out Of Driving Cars

MILLIONS of pounds of taxpayers’ money has been spent on sending council snoopers into people’s homes to hector motorists into giving up their cars.

Under the Scottish Government’s latest initiative to drive cars off the road, tens of thousands have been lectured on their own doorsteps about public transport and climate change.

Four local authorities, Dundee, Dumfries and Galloway, East Renfrewshire, and Falkirk, have lavished £10million on a string of “insulting” green projects, which included sending officials on door-to-door visits.

Key BP Oil Well Test Delayed - US Official

The start of BP PLC's (BP) crucial integrity test of the leaking Gulf of Mexico oil well has been delayed until at least Wednesday, the U.S. official leading the disaster response said.

Adm. Thad Allen, the former U.S. Coast Guard chief, said he had taken the decision to delay the test after meetings with Energy Secretary Steven Chu, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist, and other top experts.

Who Killed the Glass-Steagall Act?

The Glass Steagall Act President Roosevelt signed into law was repealed. See who swept aside the banking firewall protections on the 12th of November 1999.

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), also known as the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999, is an act of the 106th United States Congress (1999-2001), signed into law by President Clinton which repealed part of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, opening up the market among banking companies, securities companies and insurance companies. The Glass-Steagall Act prohibited any one institution from acting as any combination of an investment bank, a commercial bank, and/or an insurance company.

Knesset punishes Palestinian MK Zoabi for flotilla

With a 34-16 vote in favor of the measure, Zoabi loses three main privileges afforded all members of the Knesset. Most importantly, Zoabi will be barred from leaving the country, which supporters of the measure say will prevent her from fleeing charges that might be brought against her over her actions.

Zoabi denounced the vote, accusing her fellow lawmakers of acting purely out of vengeance. "It's not surprising that a country that strips the fundamental rights of its Arab citizens would revoke the privileges of a Knesset member who loyally represents her electorate."

Turkey, China help Iran on fuel supplies after "US bite"

Friendly powers in the international arena are helping Iran get fuel supplies after the U.S. passed unilateral sanctions a week ago that aim to hinder Tehran's fuel imports.

The Islamic Republic is buying around half of its July gasoline imports from Turkey and the rest from Chinese sellers, oil traders said on Thursday, as most other suppliers have stopped selling due to the U.S. sanctions.

Two of the gasoline cargoes coming from Turkey were scheduled to load from Turkish refiner Tupras' Izmit refinery, while two or three were scheduled to load from Tupras' Izmir refinery, sources said. The cargoes would be loaded load onto ships owned by the state energy giant National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC), they added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although I would doubt that the US military would attempt to board either Turkish or Chinese ships, I don't think that Washington would have any qualms about having our military board one of the Iranian Oil Company's ships.

We'll see; I wonder just when these ships originally left port, and what the estimated time of arrival will be in Iran.

National interest has gone missing in USA and Israel

Lawrence Davidson argues that the power of Zionist lobbies in the United States and real-estate ideologues in Israel mean that war and expansionism will always take precedence over the national interest in both countries.

"The explanation given here helps us to understand why [Syrian President] Bashar Asad can knock at Israel’s locked door and no one in that country will bother to open it. It also helps us understand why Obama and Clinton turned their backs on the Turkish and Brazilian efforts to negotiate a deal with Iran. Both are reacting to the power and influence of domestic special interests. Compared to these interests, the "national interest" does not stand a chance."

After Oil Spill, Gulf States Want Obama Vacation

After Oil Spill, Gulf States Want Obama Vacation
By Paul Bedard
Posted July 13, 2010 10:50 AM ET
Now 15 years later, President Obama is getting some similar vacation advice intended to bolster his image, especially with those upset with his administration's handling of the Gulf oil spill cleanup. On one hand, Gulf tourism officials think he should visit the area to help show it's still a good vacation spot while on the other hand the public wants him there to do some public service.See photos of the Gulf oil spill. http://politics.usnews.com/news/energy/photos/gulf-coast-oil-spill

Got an iPhone 4? You may need duct tape

In a controlled test, Consumer Reports found that people who hold the iPhone 4 in a way that covers up an antenna connector on the phone's lower left side will experience poorer reception and possibly dropped calls.

But if you slap a piece of duct tape over that antenna connection, the reception problems go away, the group says.

"When your finger or hand touches a spot on the phone's lower left side -- an easy thing, especially for lefties -- the signal can significantly degrade enough to cause you to lose your connection altogether if you're in an area with a weak signal," Consumer Reports says.

"Due to this problem, we can't recommend the iPhone 4."

Will Libya aid ship force more changes to Israel's Gaza blockade?

As a potential confrontation looms between Israel and the Libyan sponsors of a Gaza-bound aid ship, Israel's naval blockade of the impoverished coastal strip faces a new test.

A charity headed by Saif Qaddafi, the son of Libyan ruler Muammar Qaddafi, has organized a ship with a cargo of 2,000 tons food stuffs. Saif Qaddafi joins groups in Iran and Lebanon – all countries which Israel views as hostile – in declaring a desire to reach Gaza.

The international furor over Israel's killing of nine pro-Palestinian activists in late May weakened the Israeli siege on Gaza, but follow-up efforts have fizzled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Key facts to keep in mind in the coming hours. 1. This aid ship carries only food. 2. Israel has intercepted this aid ship in international waters.

Israel paves the way for killing by remote control

The female soldiers, located far away in an operations room, are responsible for aiming and firing remote-controlled machine-guns mounted on watch-towers every few hundred metres along an electronic fence that surrounds Gaza.

The system is one of the latest “remote killing” devices developed by Israel’s Rafael armaments company, the former weapons research division of the Israeli army and now a separate governmental firm.

Report: Iran-Iraq-Syria Missile Route Revealed

Iraqi civilians report that dozens of Iranian trucks filled with missiles have recently passed through their country, former minister Mordechai Ben-Porat told Arutz Sheva's Hebrew-language news service. The trucks appear to be heading for Syria.

Ben-Porat's source witnessed 75 trucks filled with long-range missiles near his hometown in northern Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, here we go again with Israeli desperation on the cusp of madness.

First, the article says that it is "Iraqi civilians" who have reported "...that dozens of Iranian trucks filled with missiles have recently passed through their country."

But in a breathlessly head spinning statement in the 2nd paragraph, the article goes on to say, "Ben-Porat's source witnessed 75 trucks filled with long-range missiles near his hometown in northern Iraq."

So, is it one, or several people who have allegedly seen these trucks?

If the trucks were closed, how could these people, unless they were among "Miss Cleo's psychic friends" known that these 75 trucks were filled with long-range missiles?

Sign here to tell Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to launch an investigation into whether American organizations funding settlement activities in the Occupied Territories have broken the law.

Disgraced political fundraiser Jack Ambramoff. Settlements in the West Bank. U.S.-designated Jewish terrorist groups.

This dangerous cocktail was the focus of an investigative report last week in The New York Times on American charities that fund the settlements. [1]

The scariest part? A connection between an American organization that fundraises for pro-settler Israeli political activity and "a former executive director of the banned Israeli political party Kahane Chai." Kahane Chai was designated a terrorist organization by the United States in 1994.

This revelation should raise enormous red flags for the United States Treasury Department, the federal agency responsible for enforcing the law when it comes to terrorist financing and tax evasion.

Israel's Settlement Enterprise: Longstanding, Outrageous and Illegal

B'Tselem, the Israeli human rights organization, addressed it in its July 2010 report titled, "By Hook and By Crook: Israel's Settlement Policy in the West Bank", ahead of a July 6 meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Obama, their fifth - a shameless love fest endorsing Israeli crimes, Obama saying Israel has "got to be able to respond to threats or any combination of threats in the region," ones it manufactures to pursue ruthless, lawless policies, nonviolent civilians the victims.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember: every one of your taxpayer dollars spent by the US on Israel (spent illegally, by the way, according to US law, while homeless Vets lie sleeping in our streets) supports Israeli annexation of the West Bank, Jerusalem, which is now being coupled with forced expulsion of Palestinians who have lived on that land for generations.

There is No Plan For Permanently Housing the 1.9 Million Haitians Who Lost Their Homes in the Quake

Four new free enterprise zones have been created since the earthquake. Both Bill Clinton, who is the special envoy to Haiti from the U.N., and Hillary Clinton, of course in her role as Secretary of State, have said that the assembly industry is the linchpin of the reconstruction plan. And yet the sweat shop workers earn $3.09 a day, which is not a livable wage, work in often terrible conditions, and are forced to live in terrible conditions as well. Many of the people who died in the earthquake were sweatshop workers who could not afford better housing than temporary makeshift structures that were on top of each other, that were on the sides of hills, that were completely unstable, which is why up to 300,000 people died during this earthquake.

Has “Obamageddon” signed the world's death warrant?

In what many will see as a pact with the devil, Obama has emphasized that the US will cuddle up to Israel to "support our common efforts to strengthen international peace and stability" and ensure that arms control initiatives don’t rock the boat on Israel's precious security.

"Israel had been nervous that Mr Obama would not continue the 1969 understanding because of his strong support for non-proliferation and priority on preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons."

So here we have Obama helping the delinquent state on its way to Armageddon and God-promised world supremacy, while itching to vaporize Iran for daring to think nuclear even in a civil way.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Regrettably, both in the US and Israel, it does appear that the inmates have taken over the asylum.

Group to oppose President Obama's Mideast policy

The new committee declined to disclose its funding — as a 501(c)(4) advocacy organization, it isn’t required to — but said it had raised enough to air its first ad, starting this week, on Fox and CNN and during a Philadelphia Phillies game. The ad attacks Sestak for signing a letter criticizing Israel’s blockade of Gaza while not signing a defense of Israel circulated by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and for appearing at a fundraiser for the Council on American Islamic Relations, which it describes as an “anti-Israel organization the FBI called a ‘front group for Hamas.’”

CAIR denied the 2008 allegation, and no charges were ever brought against it.

“Does Congressman Joe Sestak understand Israel is America’s ally?” asks the ad’s narrator.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to thinking Americans: Israel is not the US's friend in any way, shape or form, and never has been. The US has, unfortunately, been Israel's "useful idiot" from the moment Israel was founded.

It is a apartheid regime which does not want peace with Palestinians, but wants more territory by any means necessary.

Those people who hold political office in the US who put Israel first, second, and third in their considerationsneed to be voted out of office as quickly as humanly possible.

Those people in the media who put Israel first, second, and third in their blatantly biased corporate media exposure should be shunned as though they were kryptonite.

On July 7, 2010, at “The Spy Museum,” in Washington, D.C., the IRmep sponsored a panel discussion. It was titled: “Israel’s Nuclear Arsenal: Espionage, Opacity and Future.” One of the speakers was the IRmep’s Director, Grant F. Smith. He is the author of the books, “Spy Trade,” “America’s Defense Line” and “Foreign Agents.” Smith underscored in his remarks that President John F. Kennedy tried to stop Israel from developing nuclear weapons. And, that his brother, Robert F. Kennedy, the then-U. S. Attorney General, had “ordered” a then-leading Israeli front group in this country “to register as a foreign agent.”

Iranian fighter turned US spy: Tehran will attack Israel

Former Revolutionary Guard member who relayed its secret operations to CIA for 10 years says Iran will commit 'most horrendous suicide bombing in human history' if not stopped.

During a conference held at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy on Friday, Reza Kahlili (pseudonym) estimated that Iran will eventually attack Israel, Europe and the Persian Gulf states. He called for a preemptive strike on the regime in Tehran, but not on the Iranian people or the country's infrastructure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Iranian leadership many be many things, but it is not collectively stupid.

Iranian leadership understands that any attack against Israel would be suicidal against the entire nation of Iran, and that US and Israeli weapons would turn the country into a molten mess in retaliation.

But what the timing and the nature of these assertions are telling me is that the Israeli government is strongly considering doing a "false flag" attack on its own territory and against its own people as the justification to kick off a war against Iran.

WOT is a creation of Mozilla, a Web Browser that came on the scene after the demise of Netscape.

With the support received, I am sure comes a commitment to uphold the ideals of the Google Corporation, which includes the blind support of zionism. Hence the determination that Window Into Palestine is a ‘dangerous’ site.

Americans’ credit scores at new lows

The credit scores of millions more Americans are sinking to new lows.

Figures provided by FICO Inc. show that 25.5 percent of consumers — nearly 43.4 million people — now have a credit score of 599 or below, marking them as poor risks for lenders. It's unlikely they will be able to get credit cards, auto loans or mortgages under the tighter lending standards banks now use.

Because consumers relied so heavily on debt to fuel their spending in recent years, their restricted access to credit is one reason for the slow economic recovery.

Obama: Tell Americans the Truth About Afghanistan

So why is the U.S. in Afghanistan? Obama owes Americans the truth.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The truth here, sadly, is that the US and NATO military are here for three reasons, all of them having to do with private profit, and none of them having to do with the safety or security of the US or NATO countries.

They are:

1. The installation of oil pipelines with which to control Eurasian oil (mission singularly unaccomplished here).

2. The control of the drug trade from which so many profit so handsomely (mission very much accomplished here, to the point that the Russian government is openly complaining about the cheap heroin flooding their country).

3. The control of Afghanistan's vast mineral wealth (mission bungled severely, in light of the fact that, as reported at:


Karzai is giving Japan "...priority to explore and extract untapped mineral resources...")

So this means that every single US and NATO soldier who has been died or maimed for life in this meatgrinder has had this happen not to defend the security of their respective countries, but to extract wealth for private corporations from Afghanistan.

All the families and friends who mourn their dead, and grieve for those who have been maimed for life need to understand just why their loved ones have had this happen to them.

Consumer confidence is plummeting, big banks are hoarding cash, top financial experts are issuing recession warnings and it seems like almost everyone is trying to accumulate as much gold as possible. Now that the G20 nations have all pledged to dramatically cut government spending in an effort to get debt under control, worries about a double-dip recession have reached a fever pitch.

Another Gigantic Undersea Volcano Found Off Coast of Indonesia

Now, this illustrates one of the problems with the global warming alarmists theories, because they claim to know for a certainty how much humans contribute to global warming.

But in order to have an accurate figure for the human contribution to the temperature of the oceans and atmosphere, you need to be able to subtract out all other factors.

So, how many active undersea volcanoes are there in the world?

Don't worry that you don't know; it is a trick question. Nobody has that answer, as today's story illustrates.

So, if the number of undersea volcanoes pouring heat into the oceans and from the oceans into the atmosphere are unknown, then it is impossible to estimate what the human contributions might be.

H1 Homeless Camp cleared again

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder: where do the police and civic government of Hawaii expect these homeless people to go?!?!?

Are they ultimately going to arrest these people, and use them for unpaid labor, like the debtor's prisons of old did?!?

Israel gives Gaza-bound ship midnight ultimatum

Israeli authorities have given a Gaza-bound Libyan aid ship an ultimatum of midnight on Tuesday to change course, in a radio contact with the vessel, an organiser of the mission on board said.

"Israeli authorities have given us until midnight tonight to change course and head to the (Egyptian) port of El-Arish, otherwise they are threatening to intercept the boat with their navy," Mashallah Zwei said.

Zwei, a member of the Kadhafi Foundation charity which organised the shipment, told AFP by satellite phone that the Israelis were told the request would be "studied before a response is given."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Israeli government looks more and more like the netherside of a donkey every time they do this.

But the siege of Gaza must be broken, in order that desperately needed basic supplies delivered there.

Israeli flotilla probe: Use of live fire by commandos ‘justified’

Mistakes were made at a "relatively senior" level during Israel's deadly raid on a Gaza-bound aid boat but the use of live fire by commandos was justified, the results of military probe showed Monday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my complete (absence of) shock that the Israeli military would sanitize and whitewash their "commission's" review of the flotilla massacre.

Also, though this blatant twisting of the truth, coupled with outright lies, what Israel is telling the world is that they will do this again; that is, of course, unless and until someone stops them.

Israel's sneaky way of stealing land

U.S. States Show First Tax Revenue Jump Since 2008, Report Says

California and New York helped push U.S. states’ tax revenue to the first quarterly gain since 2008, the Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because Californians and New Yorkers got hit with massive tax increases. The revenue gains do not represent an improvement of life for Americans, but their accelerating impoverishment.

BP claims ‘Top Hat 10? could completely stop oil gusher

Hours after BP fitted a new containment cap to a damaged well at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, the gushing oil and gas appeared to completely stop, according to images relayed from a live video from the sea floor. Oil was once again jetting from the well a moment later as the company continued testing pressure seals on the "Top Hat 10" cap.

BP representatives said it would take between six and 48 hours to determine if the new well cap will work. The company has said the cap could effectively contain the massive spill, which has only been growing since the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform exploded and sank on April 22

The Attack of the Real Black Helicopter Gang: The IMF Is Coming for Your Social Security

Last week, the IMF told the United States that it needs to start getting its budget deficit down. It put cutting Social Security at the top of the steps that the country should take to achieve deficit reduction. This one is more than a bit outrageous for two reasons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem is that the reserve system of banking, in which all public currency is issued by private banks at interest, results in a permanent state of there being more debt than there is money to pay it. As long as new generations of borrowers can be found to allow new money to be printed up to pay the interest on the old money the system, continues to operate, even though the debt continues to outstrip the money supply. This makes the entire reserve system a pyramid scheme.

But when the population stops growing, or worse, shrinks (as the baby boomers start to retire and die off), the pyramid collapses. The interest debt owed to the reserve system is still there but there is no new money being generated to pay it and the whole system comes crashing down. That is what is occurring now, and this looting of the people by banks, government, and the IMF is the grabbing of chairs in anticipation of the music stopping.

This type of disaster has happened many times before, including the collapse of Rome, which is why so many cultures and even the early Catholic church forbade usery. The Knights Templar got around the prohibition by charging "rent" for the use of their money, but in actuality this was the secret of the Templar wealth; they were allowed to charge interest for loans in a world where nobody else dared do so.

When the United States was founded, one of the revolutionary ideas the founding fathers had was that the government should issue the public currency interest free. And it worked to make the young America a prosperous land. But in 1913, a corrupted Congress and a deceived President sold this land back into the clutches of private bankers and the ruin they foisted on the people is plain to see.

Two sets of standards

Poor 'holocaust' and Charlie Manson 'victim' Roman Polanski won't be extradited back to the U.S. for drugging and raping a child. He's suffered enough and it happened so many years ago said fellow pervert Woody Allen.

Certain Hollywood insiders must be ecstatic that they may be able to make a few more bucks off this sorry ass and his sorry ass films.

Meanwhile, Mel Gibson gets set up, runs his mouth again and Hollywood turns mean.

He could face a year in jail for misdemeanor batter or "the courts could upgrade the charge to assault with enhancement of great bodily injury," "The maximum penalty for that is four years behind bars in a state prison, and the D.A.'s office almost always seeks state prison under those charges."

Conversation with the Crow

That would be a very sore spot with Kimmel. He has to defend his turf. Faked evidence? The Bureau has been known to stoop to that on a number of occasions. If they know, or believe you did something but can’t quite get you, why lo and behold they find your fingerprints all over something. Possibly a gun used in icing Martin Luther King or a blood stained print at the scene of a mob killing. Faking evidence and suborning perjury is nothing new for the Bureau. No one likes to talk about it because of the uproar it would cause. All kinds of lawsuits by innocent and framed convicts would follow. Kimmel is very protective of the Bureau but I think he spends more time trying to rehabilitate the Admiral.

A Banana Republic Ripe for a Coup d'état

The coup d'état of the Republic has long ago taken place. The rule by banana republic potentates is the disposition of governance in the Disunited States. You may not like Steele’s politics, but you should defend his right to defend himself and demand real due process of law. The reality is that anyone can be targeted for extinction by a corrupt government. The tree of liberty bears nourishing fruit only when the lifeblood of genuine Patriots are willing to confront tyrants and combat dictatorial government. America does not need another insider coup. It calls out for a second American Revolution.

The Voice of the White House - Israel

Up until the piracy against the Gaza aid flotilla by the IDF, the subject of Israel was more or less sacred to the Western media. But following that brutality and murder, the attitudes of said media have begun to change. Now, we see a good deal of negative material concerning Israel…and rightfully so…and even in some of the American media we can find more objectivity.

Suffer These Crimes in Oakland? Don't Call the Cops

Chief Anthony Batts listed exactly 44 situations that his officers no longer respond to and they include grand theft, burglary, vehicle collision, identity theft and vandalism. He says if you live and Oakland and one of the above happens to you, you need to let police know on-line.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But the US Government can still send billions of dollars to Israel every year, and hand trillions to Wall Street.

Bilderberg Corporate Media Mogul Wrote Obama Speech

The fact that Barack Obama is nothing more than a corporate sock puppet, a completely hollow vassal being used and manipulated by his globalist controllers to carry out their agenda, has once again been emphasized with the revelation that corporate media mogul and Bilderberg luminary Mortimer Zuckerman wrote one of Obama’s political speeches.

“Well I voted for Obama, I helped write one of his speeches,” Zuckerman told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto yesterday.

When Will We Take Responsibility for the Obama Presidency's Failings?

While it is uncomfortable and in some respects unreasonable to take to task the people who should be the biggest allies of social movements and, in fact, an ally of this writer (who considers himself to be progressive), the cycle with which progressives have the Left going in is incredibly destructive to the future of this country, the world and in fact the whole of humanity. The strategy and tactics of progressives increasingly look like the definition of insanity--doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result.

Andy Worthington

The Guantanamo Files: The Story of the 774 Detainees in America’s Illegal Prison. In Andy Worthington’s The Guantanamo Files, the whole story of the Cuban camp emerges as a ghastly experiment in which the terrorist suspects became guinea pigs in a vast experiment of methods to crack the human soul. [This] is a powerful, essential and long-overdue piece of research, providing the first real Who’s Who of those held at the Cuban base. –Stephen Grey, New Statesman

Obama: 'I Have Met Israel and It Is "Us"'

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu set up another illegal Jewish settlement, this time on the White House lawn. And, it appears, President Obama has agreed to serve as its armed guard.

So complete was Obama’s identification with Israel yesterday that he actually referred to Israel as “us” before correcting himself:

“We strongly believe that, given its size, its history, the region that it’s in, and the threats that are leveled against us—against it, that Israel has unique security requirements.”

Pharmacists give themselves cancer from dispensing toxic chemotherapy chemicals

One of the side effects of chemotherapy is, ironically, cancer. The cancer doctors don't say much about it, but it's printed right on the chemo drug warning labels (in small print, of course). If you go into a cancer treatment clinic with one type of cancer, and you allow yourself to be injected with chemotherapy chemicals, you will often develop a second type of cancer as a result. Your oncologist will often claim to have successfully treated your first cancer even while you develop a second or third cancer directly caused by the chemo used to treat the original cancer.

There's nothing like cancer-causing chemotherapy to boost repeat business, huh?
