Looked at HAARP this morning site down.. Showed some activity, something may be up in the coming days, know more later. http://bit.ly/4kOMC
In reality, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s charges are not far fetched. Many of us know weather modification has been going on for some time. Weather modification in it’s simplest form might be referred to as ‘cloud seeding’. But now with technology, we know weather in the world is an experiment. Maybe one they have perfected over the years.
Here’s a little of what Ahmadinejad said, via telegraph.co.uk:
“Western countries have designed plans to cause drought in certain areas of the world, including Iran,” Mr Ahmadinejad said in the city of Arak in Markazi province.
“According to reports on climate, whose accuracy has been verified, European countries are using special equipment to force clouds to dump” their water on their continent, he said.
By doing so, “they prevent rain clouds from reaching regional countries, including Iran,” Mr Ahmadinejad charged.
Of course no one will believe him for he has on many occasion been labeled a nut-job for things he has said. I recall from past when he spoke of weather modification being labeled a ‘conspiracy theorist’. When one is labeled a conspiracy theorist, people tend not to listen to a word they say.
Is weather modification using high tech equipment a conspiracy theory ? Not by any means.
They want you to think it is so as to divert attention away from the program.
Take this for instance. Shortly after the Gulf Oil Spill in 2010, I mentioned ‘there would be NO tropical storms or Hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico that would cross paths were the spill occurred’. Guess what, there wasn’t. There was one storm that did make it through the Gulf during the 2010 Hurricane season, Tropical Storm Bonnie. However, before entering the Gulf after crossing Florida, Bonnie was down-graded to a Tropical Depression. Before making landfall in Louisiana, Bonnie was downgraded further to a remnant low pressure system on 25 July just before crossing paths with the location of Deepwater Horizon Macondo blowout, about 60 nautical miles [1 nautical mile = 1.15077945 miles] southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River. The Deepwater rig was located 50 miles off the Louisiana coast. For this time of year and the water temperatures in the Gulf, this was unheard of. Many people who chase and track hurricanes were amazed at the outcome of Hurricane season 2010. Not one US land falling tropical system in 2010.
In fact, the hurricane season for 2010 was expected to be an ‘above normal season’, during which tropical systems usually make landfall in the U.S..
NOAA’s updated 2010 Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook calls for a 90% chance of an above normal season. There is only a 10% chance of a near-normal season, and no expectation the season will be below normal. Therefore, 2010 is expected to become the eleventh above-normal season since 1995.
Being a weather freak, here is my tracking map of Bonnie showing where she fell apart with the location of Deepwater Horizon plotted as well.
So what happened ?? Was weather modification in use ? Seems a strong probability to me as they needed the dispersed oil to sink to the bottom of the gulf, instead of being stirred and brought ashore.
With an example of possible weather modification in use, lets get back to Ahmadinejad. Is his statement that far fetched ? No, and this is why.
Back in August of 1996, 16 years ago when technology was an infant to us tax payers, a research paper by 7 military officers was presented. The title: Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025[4a]. Within this report are what they say are “fictional representations of future situations/scenarios. Any similarities to real people or events, other than those specifically cited, are unintentional and are for purposes of illustration only.”
There is one image that stands out after Ahmadinejad made his accusation, ‘Figure 3-2. The Military System for Weather-Modification Operations’, seen here.
Why does it stand out you may ask. Well, for one, the fictional representation of the country [bottom right]. It sure does look like Iran. Go find a map and check for yourself.
If you look at the lower left of the image, sure does look like high tech equipment. Kinda like the HAARP antenna array. From this image, we see a thunderstorm over the fictional country. But some of us know if they can do that, they can also cause other modifications to the weather like Ahmadinejad mentions. That being drought.
And just to be clear about this, this is from the research papers ‘Executive Summary’.
A high-risk, high-reward endeavor, weather-modification offers a dilemma not unlike the splitting of the atom. While some segments of society will always be reluctant to examine controversial issues such as weather-modification, the tremendous military capabilities that could result from this field are ignored at our own peril. From enhancing friendly operations or disrupting those of the enemy via small-scale tailoring of natural weather patterns to complete dominance of global communications and counterspace control, weather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary. Some of the potential capabilities a weather-modification system could provide to a war-fighting commander in chief (CINC) are listed in table 1.
“The technology is there, waiting for us to pull it all together;” in 2025 we can “Own the Weather.”
On a side note: I expect at least one maybe two strong tropical systems to stir the Gulf of Mexico this season. They will use this as a test to see what the oil is doing. If no ill reports of oil reaching the shores along the gulf coast, the US will be pounded this hurricane season. If oil does come ashore in mass, few tropical systems will track through the gulf, just as in 2010.

From an old horn player to you…
With the Jukes Horns & Tom Guarna, guitar; Joe Balllia, drums.
Some people consider my discussion on the effects of fluoride on health to be little more than another conspiracy theory or tin foil hat phenomena. But as I have pointed out here via Dr Mercola’s interview with Dr Paul Connett, it has been shown to cause damage to your bones, brain, kidneys and thyroid. Now, being equated to conspiracy theorists doesn’t concern me in the slightest, for I absolutely theorize that there is a conspiracy going on when one considers that water sources are continually adding a known poison (used to kill rats) to what we ingest.
In October of last year I even went so far as to suggest a nefarious purpose:
… putting a known poison (an industrial hazardous waste) into our drinking water cannot be GOOD for me (on the contrary, a simple study of history shows that the ONLY purpose Fluoride in water has ever had is to dumb down the citizenry and make them malleable… controllable… sheep to the slaughter)…
I first read about this over 10 years ago and stopped allowing any treatments by dentists and have tried to minimize any consumption of it via water sources, whenever possible. But, early on that was not the case and I contracted fluorosis as a young child (which “stained” my teeth with white spots).
You can see the spots 40+ years later.
It also didn’t escape me that 98% of Europe is non-fluoridated, yet they have fewer cavities than we do. Kuopio, Finland fluoridated their water from 1957-1992, but stopped and they immediately improved their dental records. Studies show that not only does fluoride NOT prevent tooth decay, but it actually INCREASES tooth decay.
But now, as I research this issue, I find that there are other health factors that I have experienced that could very well be associated with this poison. Some long time readers will remember that I had Back Surgery a few years ago because of Degenerative Disk Disease caused by Stenosis or Spondylosis (or, at least that is what the Dr said).
That was my third such surgery and I hoped would be my last. However, for the past several days, I have been having the same old pains, numbness and trouble walking as I did every other time. My toes feel like they are on fire and the sciatica is as bad as it ever was before. Generally, this flares up every few months and gets better, but I believe all the work I’ve done in the garden lately has exacerbated the problem, causing a great deal of discomfort.
So, what do I do? I start reading more about it and happened to find this article, “Causes Of Degenerative Disk Disease In Young Men” at eHow. It is there that I read this:
Excess fluoride in the body causes a condition known as fluorosis. This condition causes changes in the spine and discs, which so closely resembles degenerative disc disease. Most doctors don’t diagnose it as skeletal fluorosis but degenerative disc disease. The condition’s cause is from the excess intake of fluoride. Usually, this condition has accompanying dental fluorosis, which causes brown mottled teeth.
Just a coincidence? Personally, I don’t believe in them. All of this points to perhaps the real culprit: Skeletal fluorosis, which has been studied in India (where there is a very high prevalence of the disease) and China, but hardly at all here in the USA.
And speaking of coincidences, I just also happen to have some early signs of arthritis, which include:
Isn’t funny how that happens? If that is funny, check out this little ditty. Remember that I recently had a ruptured Achilles tendon and had to have surgery that put me on my butt for several weeks? What I never shared here was that about two to three years ago, I began to develop a small lump on the back of my other leg’s Achilles tendon, which kind of scared me (tumor or something). But, I went to the foot doctor and he said that it wasn’t cancer. He had seen this before a few times, but couldn’t really explain what caused it.
It appears that I may have figured all of this out. In another article I found called, “Possible Symptoms of Fluoride poisoning“, I found this little paragraph:
Tendonitis - increased risk of tendinitis and tendon rupture in all ages. Bony, painful lumps where tendons and ligaments attach to bones. Calcifications of connective tissue (ligaments and tendons) on X-ray, especially with pain and reduced range of motion. Simply said, If a human’s body gets exposed to high doses of Sodium fluoride, it will rupture your tendons. If you’re up into playing tennis or other similar high impact sport activities you rupture your achilles tendon, you rupture your shoulder tendons. Fluoride can build up in the bones causing pain, stiffness, and skeletal abnormalities when they get older. Since the fluoride attacks the collagen in your body, tendinitis and tendon rupture in the rotator cuff (the shoulder), the hand, the biceps, the thumb, and other tendon sites have also been reported. The risk of developing fluoroquinolone-associated tendinitis and tendon rupture is further increased in older patients usually over 60 years of age, in patients taking corticosteroid drugs, and in patients with kidney, heart or lung transplants.
Oh Shit! How many damned coincidences can I have related to this?
As I read further into that article, I see that it, too, addresses the skeletal fluorosis issue and specifically the studies done in India. For some reason, it is being totally ignored in the USA (and my little conspiracy theorist mind tells me that they INTENTIONALLY do not want any such study to take place, in order to avoid this understanding and the fact that it also is associated with many OTHER afflictions we face as Americans).
Fluoride, Arthritis, and the Specter of Misdiagnosed Skeletal Fluorosis
It has been known since the 1930s that ingesting too much fluoride can cause stiff and painful joints. According to scientists who have studied this condition (commonly referred to as skeletal fluorosis), the joint damage caused by fluoride may mimic other, more common, forms of “arthritis,” making it easy to misdiagnose — especially by doctors who are not trained in detecting fluorosis.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, 1 in 3 adults in the US now suffer from some form of arthritis. Could fluoride be a contributing factor in some of these cases? It is probable, however, as detailed in the the NRC’s 2006 review, there has never been an adequate study to determine the prevalence of earlier stages of skeletal fluorosis in the US. The problem with this “research gap” was underscored this year by three studies, one from India and two from the US.
According to the Indian study by Gupta et al, a 35-year old woman who drank water with 1.9 ppm fluoride developed a subtle form of fluorosis that doctors initially suspected to be a form of “seronegative arthritis” (2a). Seronegative arthritis refers to a form of arthritis which mimics the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), but lacks the autoantibodies diagnostic of RA. In this case study, the woman “presented with joint pain involving the lower back, both heels, and the knee for the past 3 years.” In addition to these joint pains, the patient suffered from “gastrointestinal disturbance” prompting the doctors to suspect “the possibility of enteropathic arthritis.” Enteropathic arthritis is a form of arthritis associated with inflammatory bowel diseases. The doctors finally began to suspect the role of fluoride after x-rays revealed increased bone density in the pelvic area and calcification of some ligaments. After follow-up tests revealed elevated levels of fluoride in the patient’s drinking water (1.9 ppm), and slightly elevated levels of fluoride in the blood (0.05 ppm), the doctors diagnosed the patient as suffering from fluorosis.
Another study, published in the summer by doctors at the Mayo Clinic, suggests that similar cases of fluorosis may be occurring in the US among habitual tea drinkers (tea often contains high levels of fluoride), especially those with weak kidney function (2b). In the study, the Mayo doctors detail the cases of 4 patients who developed bone pains, and in some cases gastrointestinal problems, from drinking too much tea. As with the Indian study, at least one of these patients had previously been misdiagnosed as having “arthritis.” The woman, who “developed chronic pain and stiffness in her lower back that progressed to include bilateral hip and knee pain”, had been treated for 7 years with various drugs “but with no improvement in symptoms.” It wasn’t until the Mayo Clinic doctors identified fluorosis as the cause of her pain, that the woman took steps to reduce her tea intake which led, at last, to an improvement in symptoms.2g)
According to the Mayo doctors:
“Fluoride toxicity can present in an insidious manner, and clinicians may overlook its signs and symptoms. Unless recognized and the source of excessive fluoride identified and discontinued, fluoride toxicity can be both progressive and crippling.” In yet another study, presented at the annual conference of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research, doctors reported a similar scenario (2c). A 49-year old woman (without kidney disease) developed skeletal fluorosis by drinking too much instant tea made with fluoridated water. As with the above cases, the woman “developed widespread musculoskeletal pains” and was misdiagnosed for years as having fibromylagia and osteoarthritis. According to the authors: “We surmise that habitual consumption of 3 quarts daily of some regular-strength preparations for more than 10 years, especially if made with fluoridated water, could cause clinically significant skeletal fluorosis…. This fluoride exposure seems possible for many individuals who like instant or bottled teas. In fact, when a 36-year old coworker learned of our index case, she confided drinking 3-4 qts daily of what she described as a triple strength preparation of Nestea dissolved in unfiltered, municipal tap water over the past year… With increasing use of DXA, additional instances of skeletal fluorosis from instant tea will likely be revealed…
Did I mention that I drink more iced tea made at home than anything else? Almost exclusively.
This is no coincidence and now that I am coming to a better understanding of what is actually happening to me, I hope it is not too late to fix it. I also know beyond any shadow of a doubt that people need to stop putting this crap in their mouths and ESPECIALLY stop drinking it. Find a way to filter it out. Go to your municipality and educate them on the dangers of this poison and use the fact that it COSTS MONEY to add it to get them to stop.
I know that I now have a new goal in life.
Look to these other potential symptoms of fluoride poisoning and see how this may be affecting your or your loved ones lives:
• Alzheimer’s Disease - There is increasing evidence that aluminum in the brain is a causative factor in Alzheimer’s Disease, and evidence points towards sodium fluoride’s strong affinity to ‘bond’ with this dangerous aluminum (remember it is a byproduct of aluminum manufacturing) and also it has the ability to ‘trick’ the blood-brain barrier by imitating the hydrogen ion thus allowing this chemical access to brain tissue. Another not commonly known organ victim of fluorosis is the pineal gland, located in the middle of the brain. The pineal gland can become calcified from fluorides, inhibiting it’s function as a melatonin producer. Melatonin is needed for sound, deep sleep, and the lack of it also contributes to thyroid problems that affect the entire endocrine system. The pineal gland is also considered the physical link to the upper chakras or third eye for spiritual and intuitive openings.
• Anemia, acidosis, reddish spots on skin, slight bleeding from nose lining
• Arthritis – stiff, painful joints with or without swelling; painful feet in morning
• Asthma – especially after showering in chlorine-filtered water

• Cold – temperature below normal, feeling cold all the time, feeling cold soon after a hot bath or shower
• Colic in bottle – fed babies or colic developing when breast-fed babies start solids or are weaned
• Chronic fatigue not alleviated by rest,
• Damage to internal organs, and to cellular biochemistry
• Depression, difficulty concentrating, loss of mental alertness, nervousness
• Dental fluorosis – white spotted, yellow, brown stained and/or pitted teeth – is a visual manifestation of fluoride overdose during childhood. Dental fluorosis afflicts from 1/3 to 1/2 of U.S. schoolchildren, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
• Diabetes – worsening symptoms
• Diabetes insipidus (a kidney ailment) – excessive thirst, increased water consumption that does not relieve thirst, dry throat and irritated eyes, and frequent, dilute urine, especially at night, with normal blood sugar findings
• Eyes– moving black spots (scotoma, or floaters)

I believe this is one of the very best presentations about this subject and that every redneck should read, study the links and gather a true understanding about the myth of OBL and how this bogeyman has been used to make you submit to tyranny of the Fascist state America has become. As I understand it, James is Canadian and I feel it is a shame that he is more patriotic than many Americans. I commend him for his work.

The Corbett Report
24 May, 2011
This is James Corbett of corbettreport.com with the last word on Osama Bin Laden.
Osama Bin Laden was one of the 54 children of Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden, a construction magnate who made his fortune by cozying up to the royal family of Saudi Arabia. The bin Laden family has had an intimate relationship with the upper reaches of global power politics for the past half a century.
In 1996, after the bombing of the Khobar Towers for which Osama took credit, the Saudi Binladen Group was given the contract to rebuild the facility (see article on page 14).
Also in 1996, FBI agents in the Washington field office were investigating the World Assembly of Muslim Youth, a suspected terrorist organization that included Abdullah Bin Laden, the group’s president and treasurer, and Omar Bin Laden. BBC News uncovered internal FBI documents showing how the agents were ordered to stop their investigation. The case was only reopened the week after 9/11 and the day after both brothers fled the US with FBI permission.
In 1998, another FBI investigation into the Bin Laden brothers, this one initated by the New York field office, was called off by the State Department because, it was revealed, the Bin Laden family had been granted Saudi diplomatic passports in 1996 and thus had diplomatic immunity inside the United States.
In the days after 9/11, two dozen members of the Bin Laden family and over 100 members of the Saudi royal family were flown to assembly points in Texas and Washington and then flown out of the country. At least one of these flights took place during the total ban on civilian air traffic over North American airspace. Declassified FBI documents show that the Bureau believed the Bin Laden family flight out of the country—carrying suspected terrorists Abdullah and Omar Bin Laden—was chartered by Osama Bin Laden himself, but some of the passengers, including Abdullah, were not even interviewed in person by the FBI before their departure.
Of course, for the purveyors of the official conspiracy theory of Al-Qaeda, none of this has any relevance because the Saudi Binladin Group, the family business conglomerate, issued a terse, two-sentence statement in April of 1994 publicly disowning Osama. The facts, however, indicate that this public disowning was in fact a ruse.
In 2004, Osama’s half-brother Yeslam Binladin admitted that the family shared a joint Swiss bank account with Osama. The account was not closed until 1997, the year after the Khobar Towers bombing.
Yeslam’s ex-wife, Carmen, has also stated that she “cannot believe” that the family “have cut off Osama completely,” as have Vincent Cannistraro, the former head of the CIA Counter Terrorism Center, Michael Scheuer, the former head of the CIA Bin Laden unit, and the French intelligence service, which released a report two days after 9/11 indicating they believed the Bin Laden family to be covertly aiding Osama.
Nonetheless, the question remains: do the Bin Laden family connections to the highest circles of power in the American political establishment have any relevance to the story of Osama Bin Laden? Is there any evidence that American intelligence was involved with Osama himself over the years?
During Operation Cyclone, the US government funded the Afghan mujahedeen in their struggle against the Soviets in the largest covert operation in CIA history to that time. An estimated $5 billion in arms and funding were supplied to the jihadis, including stinger anti-aircraft missiles and other equipment that kept the Soviet Red Army bogged down in the country for years.
Officially, the CIA’s contact was limited to the Afghans themselves, and no funding was given to the so-called Arab Afghans like Osama Bin Laden, the Muslims from the Arab world who came to Afghanistan to aid in their fight against the Soviets. In reality, however, CIA funds were being funnelled to the ISI, the Pakistani intelligence service that distributed those funds to the Arab Afghans through an organization called MAK, or the Bureau of Services. Osama Bin Laden was the one in charge of MAK’s finances.
This much was admitted by Osama’s brother Salem in 1985, who confessed that Osama was “the liaison between the US, the Saudi government and the Afghan rebels” at the time. In 1986, Salem asked the Pentagon for anti-aircraft missiles on Osama’s behalf.
The former chief of the US visa bureau in Jeddah, Michael Springmann, has testified that during his time there, he was respeatedly ordered by CIA officials to approve visas for Bin Laden’s mujahedeen cohorts so that they could be provided training at US military bases. 11 of the 19 alleged 9/11 hijackers would go on to get their visas from the same consulate.
FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds has admitted that in her time at the FBI she saw proof that the US had maintained a “very intimate relationship” with Bin Laden all the way though the 1990s up to September 11th.
The Guardian reported that Osama had travelled to the American Hospital in Dubai for kidney dialysis treatment in June 2001. While there, he was visited by the local CIA station chief. When the CIA official later boasted about having met Osama Bin Laden, he was promptly recalled to Washington.
In a July 2005 article in the Guardian, Robin Cook, the former speaker of the House of Commons, asserted that the name Al Qaeda itself actually referred to the database containing CIA assets from the Afghan mujahedeen struggle.
Even Osama’s alleged responsibility for the 9/11 events has been repeatedly called into question.
In the weeks after the attack, the Taliban offered to hand Bin Laden over if the US provided proof that he was connected to 9/11. Bush turned the offer down. After the invasion of Afghanistan began in October, the Taliban again tried to hand him over, this time dropping the request for proof of Bin Laden’s guilt. Bush again refused.
After video of what the Pentagon alleged was Osama Bin Laden confessing to the 9/11 attacks emerged in December 2001, a German national news program conducted its own investigation into the tape. According to its own, independent translators, every single point in the video that the Pentagon alleges indicate Osama’s foreknowledge or complicity in the 9/11 attack has been mistranslated, and the video does not in fact provide any proof of confession.
Famously, FBI spokesman Rex Tomb told investigative journalist Ed Haas that the FBI did not include 9/11 on Bin Laden’s “most wanted” profile because there was no hard evidence connecting him to the crime.
And yet within the first minute of TV coverage of the second plane hitting the World Trade Center on 9/11, Osama Bin Laden was named as the likely perpetrator of the event. This idea solidified into a near certainty within hours, and the 24/7 news coverage shifted almost immediately to the question of when the US would invade Afghanistan.
In an interview the day after 9/11, confronted with this tendency of the press to jump to conclusions about Osama Bin Laden, ex-CIA station chief Milt Bearden made some unexpected statements about the supposed terrorist mastermind.
And now, in May of 2011, after Osama Bin Laden has been allegedly tracked down and allegedly shot by a Navy Seal team, after a trillion dollars and two wars have been waged in the name of fighting his shadowy, non-existent terror organization, as the very fabric of our society itself has been torn asunder in the neverending hunt for the terrorist boogeyman under our collective bed, perhaps it is time to ask once again what Osama Bin Laden means to us, after all.
If one were to base their understanding of Osama Bin Laden solely on mainstream media coverage of him over the last 10 years, a very different picture would emerge to the one that you have just been presented.
This media-constructed image would be one of a radical Muslim who appeared out of nowhere in the 1990s to begin a string of increasingly devastating terror attacks on American targets. After masterminding the 9/11 attacks in some undefined manner from a cave fortress in the hills of Afghanistan, he supposedly outwitted and outmanoeuvred the combined might of the most powerful military and the most technologically sophisticated intelligence dragnet in the history of the world for an entire decade, all the while releasing videos and audiotapes from his secret compound to taunt his would-be captors. Finally, we are told, he was tracked down and shot in a special forces raid during which live video transmissions were inexplicably unavailable and then buried at sea before his death could be confirmed by any independent third party.
What emerges from the official Osama Bin Laden story is not a person but a comic book villain, a faceless, mysterious, motivationless embodiment of “terrorism” with all the reality of a Lex Luther or Cobra Commander. His is a powerful myth, made all the more powerful because it has been constructed and promoted by the very politicians and string-pullers who claim to be opposing him. Like Orwell’s Emmanuel Goldstein, his face can be put before the public from time to time to produce the Two Minute Hate, a cathartic projection of anger upon an empty image. We know to hiss when his picture is dangled before us and cheer when we are told he is dead. But always, always, it is stressed that he is fearsome, that he is ruthless, and that the only way to stop him is to surrender our rights and freedoms. Even in death, we are told, he and the mythical army of devotees he supposedly ruled over, are a clear and present danger to our society necessitating the continuation of the neverending wars against abstract nouns, TSA agents groping children at the airports and extra-judicial no-fly lists that are turning in to no-ride lists and no-buy lists.
The only thing we can say for certain is that the Osama Bin Laden character has now been disposed of in a far-fetched burial story only fitting of his cartoonish myth. And now the public is already being prepared for his replacement myths, a gaggle of similarly cartoonish characters no less connected to the Western intelligence establishment than Osama himself.
But after finally waking from the 10 year nightmare of the Osama Bin Laden fable, are the public willing to go straight back to sleep? Or are they going to start questioning the official narratives that are cemented into place in the wake of every large-scale event, narratives that always support more government intrusion in our lives, expanded wars of aggression around the globe and an ever-expanding police state?
It’s an important question, and one that must be answered quickly, while the public is still wary and skeptical of a government that has lied to them time and time again and then refuses to provide that public with a single credible shred of proof that the largest manhunt in the history of America has ended with the disposal of this intelligence asset, Osama Bin Laden.
For if the public does choose to go back to sleep and dismiss the copious documentary evidence that the entire war on terror is a fraud being perpetrated by the same people who claim to be fighting the terrorists, we may never be able to awake from whatever nightmare they have planned for us next.
For The Corbett Report in western Japan, I am James Corbett.
Please listen to this clueless Richard Noggin speak and then explain to me how you might agree with him.
“The idea of shared sacrifice is not a particularly appealing concept…”
You think, you sanctimonious fool? Especially when it concerns those that profit from unending wars and Fascist programs? Especially when it comes to supporting the controllers of the so-called “leaders” of this country (namely, Israel).
As Greg at The Goon Squad points out, our “leaders” would rather our folks in need go without any help instead of cutting a nickel from aid to his masters, Israel:
Eric Cantor says there will be no federal aid for Joplin. Cantor said spending cuts must occur before one dime of federal money will be spent to clean up Joplin.
The kicker here is during Hurricane Katrina, Cantor helped line the pockets of a Virginia company, his home state, with FEMA money to help in aid for New Orleans.
Don’t believe me that Israel rules the American Congress? Explain this:
Yes, sir, Senator Gravel, it IS grovelling, but I disagree with one thing in the video: the idea that Israel is stronger than the United States. That isn’t the problem, at all. The issue is that Israel OWNS our congress. Yet, it is primarily our money used to buy them. And, PLEASE, this is no issue of one party over another… they both kowtow to the money and control. As Glenn Greenwald points out, you see many differences between the two parties on almost every other issue, but when it comes to worshiping their election providers (Israel), they are all lock-step and both bowing with great reverence:
In sum, the same faction that spent the last decade demanding fealty to the Commander-in-Chief in a Time of War upon pain of being accused of a lack of patriotism (or worse) now openly sides with a foreign leader over their own President. The U.S. Congress humiliates itself by expressing greater admiration for and loyalty to this foreign leader than their own country’s. And because this is all about Israel, few will find this spectacle strange, or at least will be willing to say so.
Even when it comes to the biggest burden (our military misadventures/global hegemony), the solution is not so much to scale back the illegal and immoral wars, as much as it is for the Armed Services members to sacrifice pay and benefits. As the US Secretary of Offense and Murder recently said:
…meeting Obama’s objective likely will require reducing the size of the military, eliminating some “lower priority missions” overseas and reforming military pay, pensions and health care, he said.
Now, of those things listed above, what do you think will carry the burden? Reducing the size of the military and eliminating “lower priority missions” or the other stuff?
No, the decisions aren’t hard, except for those who are enriched by our Imperialism. Because, as you have all shown for decades, ruling the world, killing the innocents, and stealing their wealth is the unstoppable agenda and you could care less about the
people sheople that actually pay for your murderous campaigns. The decisions are really easy, if it were Americans that actually MADE those decisions and not the cowardly traitors that have hijacked us.
The recent tornadoes around the mid south have been very destructive and very plentiful. After the recent Joplin, MO tornado that has a climbing death toll over a hundred the threat for another one tonite just came across the weather channel bulletin. The video below was from this past Sunday and missed or didn’t miss Joplin, MO. Very close. Showing up as a ring? HARRP??
It is amazing that so much weather is making the news this year. It just seems odd. The storms are stronger and are hitting more of a populated area than I can ever recall. I used to hear of tornadoes hitting a house or two and sometimes more. It seems it was a much rarer instance than it is now. Is it me? It used to be “15 years ago it wiped out the whole east end of town” Now it is more like “we just rebuilt from last years storm”.
In my county back on the 27th we had two tornadoes hit Belmont, MS three hours or so apart. Both were small, but caused millions of damage to the area. I noticed a lot of HARRP activity the days before the event that was the worst break-out since 1974. After the fact that is. I wasn’t studying the frequency that can be heard on a Ham radio …just that a lot of people seem to be. Evidently it can be heard as white noise and seems to be getting louder just before these storms. So these people are predicting where severe storm outbreaks will be using this method. Between 2.5 and 3.6 Hz seem to be where HARRP can be heard. So now people are connecting these rings on radar. Sometimes this signal shows up in a straight line. (Before earthquakes) I have discussed this hear on this site on more than one occasion. I don’t have a Ham radio but have listened to the recording of static from different places on the web. But I do have access to a public radar from several different sources and will be paying more attention to this in the future when these weird kinda rings start showing up.
After watching the JPL model of the comet ELENIN and the experts calling it a brown star, I believe the last three earthquakes over 7.0 in magnitude to be the blame for those events. Not saying that HARRP couldn’t be to blame it just made sense to me this was to blame. I just know something is up with the weather. Look at the Mississippi river and what it did this spring. It was the worst flood since 1927.
Are “they” manipulating the weather and aiming it right at “us”? If “they” are it is working just fine and dandy! I pray for those that are in their sights and hope my little town is spared. I am growing my own food this year. I just had a feeling I needed to and after talking with B’man. I think this is a good idea because it seems the need is there to supplement my own food supply for whatever reason that is.
“If a widespread pattern of [knock-and-announce] violations were shown . . . there would be reason for grave concern.”
—Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, in Hudson v. Michigan, June 15, 2006.
The proliferation of SWAT teams, police militarization, and the Drug War have given rise to a dramatic increase in the number of “no-knock” or “quick-knock” raids on suspected drug offenders. Because these raids are often conducted based on tips from notoriously unreliable confidential informants, police sometimes conduct SWAT-style raids on the wrong home, or on the homes of nonviolent, misdemeanor drug users. Such highly-volatile, overly confrontational tactics are bad enough when no one is hurt — it’s difficult to imagine the terror an innocent suspect or family faces when a SWAT team mistakenly breaks down their door in the middle of the night.
But even more disturbing are the number of times such “wrong door” raids unnecessarily lead to the injury or death of suspects, bystanders, and police officers. Defenders of SWAT teams and paramilitary tactics say such incidents are isolated and rare. The map below aims to refute that notion.
Click on each marker on the map for a description of the incident and sources. Markers are precise in cases where the address of an incident was reported. Where media reports indicate only a town or neighborhood, markers are located at the closest post office, city hall, or landmark. Incident descriptions and outcomes are kept as current as possible.
Other map features:
–Using the “plus” and “minus” buttons in the map’s upper left-hand corner, users can zoom in on the map to street-level, as well as switch between street map and satellite views. In some large metropolitan areas, there are so many incidents in such close proximity that they tend to overlap unless viewed on a small scale (try zooming in on New York City, for example).
–Users may isolate the incidents by type by clicking on the colored markers in the key (see only “death of an innocent” markers, for example).
–The search function just below the map produces printable descriptions of the raids plotted on the map, and is sortable by state, year, and type of incident.

All you have to do is use the search block on the left for the term “Reserve Currency” to see I have been harping for years that this is the only reason we are still able to dominate the rest of the world. Sure, we have a dominate military and we tear down countries that decide to buck that system. But, much of the rest of the world is now saying “No More!”
(And good for them)

Global financial crisis-On the Edge with Max Keiser-05-20-2011-(Part2)
To be very specific, in Nov of last year, I wrote about this thing, suggesting it was coming and that people should be prepared. I referenced a July 6, 2009 post I called, “Prepare Yourselves For The Dollar To Crash And Burn” and quoted myself:
The indicators have been around for a while (and I am sure that kelso can give specifics), but suffice it to say that when the big players in the world begin to sell off their Dollar investments and force the world into some other currency for trade, we will not be prepared for the devastation that will follow. We have basically destroyed our manufacturing in the US and have become so heavily military focused that the knee-jerk reaction will be for Americans to try and find work in a missile factory, et al. Or building ships (the largest employer in Mississippi is military, as I understand it)…
I also referenced a Sept 2009 post where I wrote the following:
The Dollar value thingy means so little to me personally because I don’t have any to worry about. But as a nation, we better be very concerned about what the next steps are after Iran drops the Dollar. It is only a matter of time before China, Russia and, yes, even Europe dumps it, as well.
It will be that moment that the true nightmare begins in this country. Why? Because we are unable to produce our way out of it since we have lost so much of our manufacturing base.
And then I asked:
What if Japan, China, Russia, Iran (and any host of other Asian or Middle Eastern countries) say, “We have had enough of America’s bullying and world domination.”? What if these countries decide that America IS too big and that she needs to be taken down a notch (financially or militarily)? Please do not think that American Exceptional-ism will save our collective asses. It won’t.
Then in Feb of 2010, I wrote (in pondering how we might be taken down financially and potentially, militarily):
I have been warning about the consequences of the status quo and have said time and time again, we are on the precipice of disaster…
…Sure, there are many variables, such as how will our military react or what false flag event can they muster to take us into war with China (and Russia, Iran and Venezuela, cause they will ban together to fight us… mark my words).
In lieu of that last statement, you need to see THIS. Hell, these liars will pull out some of the most unbelievable crap just to try and make sure the Sheople will follow along, waving their Chinese made flags and screaming to kill the Persians.
Basically, we will continue to bully the smaller countries who give us the finger (like Iraq, who was dumping the petro-dollar) and we will push the buttons of more powerful countries (like Pakistan). In doing so, we are poking the dragon in the eye, for we are forcing their hand due to their strategic partnerships with those countries (including Libya, who, just coincidentally, was about to dump the dollar and use a gold-backed Dinar AND was determined to get most of Africa to join them).
Most of the people I know in real life are clueless about the significance of this and still believe that we are “spreading Democracy”, but when you focus on the real issues about our waning hegemony, you must be able to see what is really going on. Then you must do anything you can to be ready for the inevitable all-out war that we are obviously instigating on many fronts. When it happens (and I know it is like watching a slow speed landslide), it will horrendous for those unprepared:

From an old horn player to you… Let’s go pissin’ in the ditch.
Top Shelf Jazz, a British retro “Prohibition” jazz act, has released its debut album, “Fast and Louche” and it kicks ass. Combining smutty rhythms with comic touches and real jazz virtuosity, the Top Shelfers capture a swinging sound that’s part Atomic Fireballs, part Cab Calloway, and entirely delightful. I saw Top Shelf perform at a steampunk White Mischief night at London’s Scala and they were superb live — show-stoppers who transfixed everyone who peeked into the upstairs room, dragged them in and got them dancing. I’m so glad to have their music in my possession now!
It’s The End Of The World
I wish I had thought of this:
The next best thing to pet salvation in a Post Rapture World
You’ve committed your life to Jesus. You know you’re saved. But when the Rapture comes what’s to become of your loving pets who are left behind? Eternal Earth-Bound Pets takes that burden off your mind.
Seems business must be pretty good, but you better be quick. There is a time line:
IMPORTANT NOTICE 7:10 P.M. (EST) 5/20/11: CLIENTS WISHING TO CONTRACT FOR OUR SERVICES IN TIME FOR THE 5/21/11 PROPHECY MUST SUBMIT THEIR COMPLETED CONTRACT AND PAYPAL PAYMENT BEFORE NOON (EST) SATURDAY MAY 21. ALL CONTRACTS REC’D AFTER THAT TIME WILL NOT BE IN EFFECT UNTIL 5/23/11
And, dude, the price is right (altho it causes me to want to consider a price war with them):
Our service is plain and simple; our fee structure is reasonable.
For $135.00 we will guarantee that should the Rapture occur within ten (10) years of receipt of payment, one pet per residence will be saved. Each additional pet at your residence will be saved for an additional $20.00 fee. A small price to pay for your peace of mind and the health and safety of your four legged and feathered friends.
OK: just to be sure I just looked and both my wife and daughter are still snoozing… sleeping in today. So, obviously there is no rapture (however, the day IS still young). Maybe I’ll just go party with Suzan and her friends.
And before you argue with me about Mr Camping’s prediction and say that the 21st isn’t over yet, just check to see that his main prediction included that New Zealand would have a horrific earthquake, just to get things off with a bang.
I hate when that happens.
(Apparently, it happens pretty often)
Excuse me as I go rapture some turnip greens and onions from my garden.
