Governments Complicit in Virus[?] UPDATE

Sphere: Related Content

This seems just a little suspicious to me...
US Government files for a patent on Swine Flu Virus in 2005?


"US Patent Application 20090010962 " -
Genetically Engineered Swine Influenza Virus and Uses Thereof"


“The present invention relates, in general, to attenuated swine influenza viruses having an impaired ability to antagonize the cellular interferon (IFN) response, and the use of such attenuated viruses in vaccine and pharmaceutical formulations. In particular, the invention relates to attenuated swine influenza viruses having modifications to a swine NS1 gene that diminish or eliminate the ability of the NS1 gene product to antagonize the cellular IFN response. These viruses replicate in vivo, but demonstrate decreased replication, virulence and increased attenuation, and therefore are well suited for use in live virus vaccines, and pharmaceutical formulations”

For those who enjoy science there's these quotes...

"The three parents of the virus may have been assembled in one place by natural means, such as by migrating birds, however the consistent link with pig viruses suggests that human activity was involved. We discuss a published suggestion that unsampled pig herds, the intercontinental live pig trade, together with porous quarantine barriers, generated the reassortant. We contrast that suggestion with the possibility that laboratory errors involving the sharing of virus isolates and cultured cells, or perhaps vaccine production, may have been involved."

Finally there is the report that the first human S-OIV infections were in Perote, a small Mexican town with a very large number of large piggeries, although it was also reported that none of the pigs showed signs of influenza. Among the earliest cases were some in Oaxaca, 290 kms to the south [34]. Perote is an unlikely place for an infected migratory pig to arrive from an intercontinental trip, as the town is in a remote high valley surrounded by mountains, 200 kms to the east of Mexico City where there is the nearest major airport, and 130 kms from the nearest port at Vera Cruz.

The four month difference between ‘The Most Recent Common Ancestor’ date for S-OIV estimated from its phylogeny [8, 11], and its earliest detection in the human population makes it more difficult to make specific conclusions about its provenance.

"How much evidence do you need before you begin believing TPTB may have released this 'bug'?"

Then there is another level of ‘flu’: the Spanish Flu virus.

Evidence is 'vague' on H1N1 but it's global dispersal and now the appearance of a ‘killer version’, replicating bleeding lungs signature of Spanish Flu, has been killing people in eastern Europe. Seems suspiciously like a bio-war between East and West has begun, or perhaps their governments PTB have teamed up to create crisis which promotes fear and further entrenchment of control. Side benefit could be to perfect the desired outcome while eliminating ‘useless eaters.

The BIG story is that "Swine Flu” Grips Ukraine.

53 people have died of swine flu, some by what's described as bleeding lungs which harken back to the 1918 Spanish Flu and cytokine storming where the body's defensive mechanisms goes crazy and attacks the host body itself.

The Ukraine government has proceeded to close down schools, some businesses, banning large gatherings in an attempt at preventing further spread of this ‘Designer’ Flu.

Already Hungary's health minister says the "Ukraine flu epidemic will create a huge emergency in Hungary" as it may also do in Romanian, Moldova, Slovakia, Poland, Belarus, Russia, and anyone pulling into port from he Black Sea or the Sea of Azov. A Mossad microbiologist warned two months ago that a new deadly flu bug was going to be released into Ukraine in two months.
http://www.rnw.nl/english/article/mysterious-virus-hits-ukraine

The sequence of all 8 pieces of RNA in the virus that caused the "Spanish Flu" pandemic of 1918-1919 is public knowledge. A long dead Inuit woman buried in the permafrost was dug up and the virus taken from her body a couple of years ago and the RNA pieces were sequenced. Tis not hard to synthesize the 8 pieces with widely available commercial machines and reagents. Then transfer cells of the RNA genes to obtain an intact virus. Another common technology. Then grow all you want in eggs. Also a well known technology.

What worries me is the bleeding in the lungs in Ukraine is exactly what killed millions globally (more than WWI) in the 1918-19 pandemic. See the book "The Great Influenza".

I hope we will know in a couple of weeks what the sequences are of the RNA pieces in the Ukraine virus. If it is a replicant of the "Spanish Flu, the odds are totally astronomical that this anything but a deliberate (bio-weapon) release.

The mystery of the unidentified flu virus in the Ukraine, first reported by RNW on 29 October, has deepened. The websites of conspiracy theorists are now discussing the possibility that biological warfare experiments are behind it.

Given that the Ukraine is still dealing with the consequences of the Chernobyl disaster in 1986, it’s unsurprising that such rumours have arisen. But are they just rumours, or is there some substance to the claims?

In August 2009, a man called Joseph Mosse, who claims to be a former microbiologist with the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad, was arrested in Los Angeles, having made threats against the White House. Shortly after his arrest, there were reports that he had called into a radio show with a warning about a biological weapon being prepared in the Ukraine by a company called Baxter International. According to these reports, Mr Mosse said that the weapon would be spread via a flu vaccine.

I predict that long haul truckers, who deliver the vast majority of foodstuffs, will go home and park their rigs if this flu reaches the USA. And exactly what reason do we have to suppose that it will be confined to Ukraine? By the way, most people do not know that the average city only has 3 days supply of warehoused food. This adds another whole dimension to the term ‘Catastrophic Event’...
I’m stocking the pantry ASAP and I Pray I’m wrong!

by Daniel Pipes
New York Post
September 29, 2003


The news last week that two Muslim military personnel, James Yee and Ahmad al-Halabi, had been arrested on suspicion of aiding Al-Qaeda prisoners at Guantánamo Bay (with another three Muslim servicemen under watch) seemed to prompt much surprise.

It should not have.

It has been obvious for months that Islamists who despise America have penetrated U.S. prisons, law enforcement, and armed forces. In February, a milestone Wall Street Journal article established that imams who consider Osama bin Laden "a hero of Allah" dominate the Islamic chaplaincy in the New York state prison system.

In March, I documented the case of FBI Special Agent Gamal Abdel-Hafiz: His superiors not only overlooked this immigrant's pattern of pro-Islamist behavior, they promoted him.

And at least six prior cases of Islamist servicemen have come to light:

Ali Mohamed: An Egyptian immigrant who after discharge from the U.S. Army went to work for Osama bin Laden, Mohamed pleaded guilty to helping plan the 1998 bombing surveillance of the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi. He's now in prison serving his sentence.

Semi Osman: An ethnic Lebanese immigrant and non-U.S. citizen who served in the Army and in the Naval Reserve, Osman was arrested in 2002 and accused of "material support for terrorists." He pleaded guilty to a weapons violation and served his sentence.

Abdul Raheem Al Arshad Ali: An African-American convert to Islam and former Marine, he awaits trial in prison for supplying a semiautomatic handgun to Semi Osman.

Jeffrey Leon Battle: An African-American convert and Army reservist, Battle awaits trial in prison on charges of "enlisting in the Reserves to receive military training to use against America."

John Allen Muhammad: An African-American convert and Army veteran, Muhammad is suspected of having thrown a grenade at a fellow soldier in 1991. He awaits trial in prison as one of two charged in last year's Beltway sniper killings.

Hasan Akbar: Another African-American convert, Akbar awaits trial in prison for two counts of premeditated murder and three charges of attempted murder in a March fragging incident against his fellow soldiers. His diary entries proves jihadist mindset:

The Akbar incident prompted Deanne Stillman of Slate magazine to conclude that Islamists "may be infiltrating the military in order to undermine it."

That infiltration also has a mundane quality; take the example of Nabil Elibiary: An Islamist who protests the "defaming" of bin Laden and defends polygamy, he led the holiday prayer service at an Air Force base early this year.

Executive-branch insistence on "terrorism" being the enemy, rather than militant Islam, permits this Islamist penetration.


And it continues. The Defense Department responded last week to the chaplain's arrest by defending its hiring practices. Only under external pressure, notably from Sens. Chuck Schumer and Jon Kyl, did it agree to reassess them. Even then, the Pentagon insisted on reviewing the appointments of all 2,800 military chaplains rather than the 12 Muslims among them.

Political correctness run amok! Which Christian or Jewish chaplains would be accused (as the Washington Times has reported of their Muslim colleague Yee) of "sedition aiding the enemy, spying, espionage and failure to obey a general order"? By pretending not to see that the enemy emerges from one source, the authorities dilute their focus, render their review nearly meaningless and endanger security.

The U.S. government needs to use common sense and focus on militant Islam. It should consider such steps as:

Breaking off contact with organizations (like the Islamic Society of North America and the American Muslim Armed Forces and Veterans Council) that place Islamists in government jobs.

Suspending presently employed Muslim personnel who got their jobs through those institutions until their loyalty can be confirmed.

Working instead with anti-Islamist Muslim groups, such as the Islamic Supreme Council of America for Sunni Muslims and the American Muslim Congress for Shi'ites.

Confirming that government-employed Muslims do, as many of them swore under oath, "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic." A mechanism is needed to identify employees with an Islamist outlook and expel them from government service.

Ironically, the Defense Department finds it easier to kill Islamists in Afghanistan than to exclude them from its own ranks. But only if the latter is carried out can Americans be confident their government is fully protecting them.

For those Jihadi apologists who would try to say Hassan was a victim of PTSD... Consider These Facts:

Hassan is the first terrorist in history to give an academic lecture explaining why he was about to attack. Yet that still isn’t enough for too many people—including the president of the United States--to understand that the murderous assault at Fort Hood was a Jihad attack. It was reported that the audience was shocked and frightened by his lecture.

He was to address a medical topic [PTSD] but expounded the topic:

“The Koranic World View as it Relates to Muslims in the U.S. Military”

Who is Driving Obama's Honduran Policy

Sphere: Related Content




The Americas Report
Oct 29, 2009
By Nicole Ferrand



The Obama Administration made serious mistakes in its handling of the crisis in Honduras where it supports the return of the deposed president, Mel Zelaya.

The Administration categorized the removal of Zelaya as a coup when, in fact, the Honduran military has had no role in governing the country. The Honduran Congress and Supreme Court abided by their Constitution and rule of law and ousted Zelaya because he had violated the law. As a result, the crisis in Honduras today is almost unmanageable. So what does this behavior reveal about Mr. Obama's respect for the separation of powers, as Mary Anastasia O' Grady from the Wall Street Journal accurately points out, that he would instruct Secretary of State Clinton to punish an independent court because it did not issue the ruling he wanted?

Is the administration forcing Honduras to violate its own laws?

It astonishes legal experts and independent observers that President Obama, Secretary of State Clinton and their advisors have chosen to ignore a serious factual report filed at the Library of Congress by the Congressional Research Service (CRS) that states
"Available sources indicate that the (Honduran) judicial and legislative branches applied constitutional and statutory law in the case against President Zelaya in a manner that was judged by the Honduran authorities from both branches of the government to be in accordance with the Honduran legal system,"
writes CRS senior foreign law specialist Norma C. Gutierrez in her report.

Why is this administration siding with Zelaya and his main supporter, Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez? Chavez is known to be hostile towards the U.S while working closely with Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is on the brink of obtaining a nuclear weapon and has established a bank in Venezuela with Chavez to avoid the sanctions already imposed against Iranian financial institutions responsible for transferring funds to Tehran's nuclear program. Actually, the Obama Administration and the Chavez regime sponsored a UN resolution that condemned the government of Honduras for legally removing Chavez's puppet "Mel" Zelaya.

Since assuming the presidency in January of 2009, the Obama White House mainly follows the expertise of Mr. Daniel Restrepo on issues pertaining to Latin America.


Dan Restrepo and The Center for American Progress

Prior to moving to the National Security Council, Dan Restrepo was the director of the Americas Project at the Center for American Progress (CAP), a liberal think tank, whose President and Chief Executive Officer is John Podesta, who served as chief of staff to then President Bill Clinton. This think tank has become so influential making personnel appointments in the Obama Administration that Time Magazine recently declared "there is no group in Washington with more influence at this moment in history."

One of CAP's main contributors is billionaire George Soros.

In fact, some independent groups that are more transparent, such as the Sunlight Foundation and the Campaign Legal Center, criticize the Center's failure to disclose its contributors, particularly since it is so influential in appointments to the Obama administration.

Why are Obama and Restrepo so eager to return Zelaya to power despite the overwhelming evidence against him?

Despite the fact that what happened in Honduras was NOT a coup and that the actions taken against Zelaya were in accordance with the rule of law after he violated the Constitution by illegally trying to perpetuate himself in power with the help of Hugo Chavez, the Obama administration is sticking to its coup theory. It continues misrepresenting the facts with the help of some friendly media outlets. In addition, it has decided to ignore evidence provided by Honduras' Foreign Minister Enrique Ortez who has charged that as President, Zelaya was involved with drug trafficking from Venezuela into the United States:
"Every night, three or four Venezuelan-registered planes land without the permission of appropriate authorities and bring thousands of pounds...and packages of money that are the fruit of drug trafficking," he said. "We have proof of all of this. Neighboring governments have it. The DEA has it," adding that "the drugs arrive in Honduras from Venezuela, which has become a main drug transit center, and increasingly in speedboats from Colombia," according to the Key West, Florida-based Joint Interagency Task Force-South, which coordinates drug interdiction in the region. U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration spokesman Rusty Payne in Washington said he could neither confirm nor deny the DEA investigation.


It is precisely this information involving Zelaya and drugs that could give us the key answer to what is truly going on behind U.S. policy regarding Honduras.

An extremely influential figure in Restrepo's life is Center for American Progress' strongman George Soros, who is an advocate for the legalization of illicit drugs. In fact, Soros is a member of the board of the "Drug Policy Alliance," a non-profit organization with the principal goal of ending the American "War on Drugs." As a side - note, George Soros financially contributed to the political campaign of Barack Obama, together with four other family members - daughter Jennifer, sons Jonathan and Robert and wife Susan. He has also financially supported John Kerry, Howard Dean, Hillary Clinton, Tom Daschle, Charles Schumer, Joseph Biden, Patrick Leahy and Barbara Boxer. Soros also funded Al Gore for President.

Homegrown Jihad-UPDATE

Detroit: Center of Recession and Revolution


Mosques & Islamic Centers serve as Jihad training centers


By Douglas J. Hagmann,
Director of Northeast Intelligence Network

29 October 2009: A 45 page federal complaint unsealed Wednesday (PDF), the raid on a Detroit warehouse and Detroit area residences, the shootout between mosque leader Luqman Ameen ABDULLAH, a/k/a Christopher THOMAS and law enforcement officials should be sufficient verification of the validity of our previously published investigative and surveillance findings that Islamic terror training is taking place on America soil.

On Wednesday, federal, state and local law enforcement officials raided a suburban Detroit warehouse and at least three Detroit area residences after a federal complaint was unsealed charging eleven-(11) individuals with a variety of crimes relating to Islamic terrorism. During the raid at the warehouse, ABDULLAH, 53, a “homegrown” Black Muslim terrorist and mosque leader fired on authorities as they executed the arrest warrant at that location. Before being killed by authorities, ABDULLAH shot and killed a K-9 dog.

Authorities state that six men are in custody while others remain at large. ABDULLAH, who converted to Islam while in prison, was the Imam of the Masjid Al-Haqq (mosque) in Detroit. The spiritual leader of the group is Jamil Abdullah Al-AMIN, formerly known as H. Rap BROWN, a prominent Black Panther in the late 1960s and early 1970s. BROWN is currently incarcerated for the murder of two police officers in Georgia.

American streets will become the new Islamic Jihad battleground

The information contained within the federal complaint against the Detroit suspects is clear: Islamists in the US are advocating the spread of Islam through the use of violent jihad, and they are utilizing mosques and Islamic centers as their training grounds. The Northeast Intelligence Network has warned about this very issue, and even provided evidence of such activities.

On May 27, 2005, investigators from the Northeast Intelligence Network issued a fifteen-(15) page report titled Islamic Jihad Training in America. That report (PDF) specifically details paramilitary style training taking place at urban locations, including mosques and Islamic centers, in preparation for waging “jihad” or holy war by Islamists on the streets of America. The findings in this report are not merely speculation or commentary, but evidence based on extensive field investigation and surveillance performed by professional investigators.

On February 12, 2006 and updated later that summer, the Northeast Intelligence Network published a thirty-eight-(38) page report titled Exposing Terrorists in our Midst (PDF) detailing the paramilitary training at Muslim encampments as identified through on-site investigation and surveillance conducted by investigators of this agency. Again, the findings in this report are based on field investigation performed by professional investigators. So effective was this report that this investigator earned the wrath of a top Pakistani terrorist whose followers occupy several Islamic enclaves in North America. Following the publication of this report, Pakistani terror kingpin Shiek Mubarek Ali Gilani issued a religious statement and threatened this investigator/author in a rambling diatribe on a website maintained by his followers.

The Detroit raid serves to verify that there is a growing army of Islamic jihad “warriors” in our midst, operating behind the walls of an untold number of mosques and Islamic centers. Their seditious activity is protected by the careful exploitation of our democratic laws and the religious freedom that we offer. Their activities are permitted to continue for numerous reasons, including but not limited to the blackmail of predatory litigation against those who dare to expose the threat, the insidious imposition of political correctness and multiculturalism, and the failure to understand that the “religion” of Islam is inextricably linked to an archaic and oppressive political ideology that is completely incompatible with a democratic nation and a free society.

The upcoming offensive

While scanning the various comments about the Detroit raid, I found a comment made on a conservative forum by someone who described the groups of individuals arrested as “basically nothing more than a gang of criminals wearing Halloween costume African outfits.” Unfortunately, that statement reflects the perilous lack of understanding that will result in blood being shed on the streets of America.

The individuals who are preparing for jihad love death more than we, as Americans love life. As illustrated on various Islamic terrorist message sites, the Islamists living in America keenly sense our current malaise about the threat posed by Islam, our political ambiguity regarding the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, our self-flagellation over the treatment and ultimate adjudication of enemy combatants, and the current political agenda coming directly from the White House. They are more empowered today than ever before, and feel insulated from any meaningful intervention as they continue to use US real estate as forward bases for their political and religious takeover of the United States.

Our articles published on May 3, 2007, titled Jihad coming to the streets of America and its follow-up dated May 17, 2007 are more relevant today than ever before. On Wednesday in Detroit, we saw the manifestation of events we warned about over two years ago:

“We’re talking about professional Muslim men, mosque leaders, leaders within our communities who are actually helping young men train for the eventuality of urban combat. They know what they are doing, yet they lie right to our faces about these activities- and we’re told by our supervisors that we have to accept what they tell us at face value when they know damn well they are lying.”

UPDATE: 2 Suspects Missing
WXYZ: ABC Action News 7
October 30, 2009

DEARBORN, Mich.

Two suspects are still missing in connection with the FBI raids that were conducted in metro Detroit Wednesday.

Meanwhile, police have captured another suspect in the wake of the raids.

The FBI announced that Mujahid Carswell, also known as Mujahid Abdullah, was taken into custody by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police at around 1:00 p.m. Thursday. He was captured in Windsor and taken into custody without incident. He is being detained by the Canadian Border Patrol on immigration violations.

The two missing suspects are identified as Yassir Ali Khan and Muahammad Alsahli (Philestine). The men are believed to be armed and dangerous.

The men are believed to be part of a group known as "Ummah," or brotherhood. They are a group of mostly African-American men who converted to Islam. Officials say many of them converted while in prison.

The Ummah was originally headed by Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, formerly known as H. Rapp Brown. He is serving life in prison at Colorado's supermax facility for the murder of two police officers in Georgia. He was also reportedly part of the "Black Panther" group back in the 1960s and '70s.

Most of the suspects surrendered peacefully during yesterday's raid at a warehouse at Michigan Avenue and Miller. The alleged ringleader, Luqman Ameen Abdullah, pulled a gun and shot at police. He was shot and killed by FBI agents. An FBI dog was also killed in the exchange of gunfire.

In all, nine suspects are in custody and another two are on the loose. The suspects are facing federal charges for conspiracy to commit a number of federal crimes including theft from interstate shipments, mail fraud, tampering with a motor vehicle and illegal possession and sale of firearms.

The suspects who were arrested yesterday are identified as Muhammad Salaam, Adam Ibraheem, Ali Raqib, Acie Pusha, Abdul Saboor, Abdullah Beard and Abdul Saboor. An eigth suspect, Franklin Williams, was already in custody at the time of the raid.

If you have information on the whereabouts of the two remaining suspects, you're asked to contact the FBI at (313) 965-2323

Iran - Deceptions and Strategy

Sphere: Related Content





















Despite evidence the Iranians have been hiding their nuclear pursuits and lying about it, strategy to counter the threat posed to the gulf region is slow in coming. The recent missile tests are illustrative of Iranian deception. The missiles test fired during the recent maneuvers reached a range of 3000 kilometers as opposed to the announced range of the missile. A shorter range was announced to hide the fact that it could reach several European countries with a nuclear warhead. Their new missile is a two-stage solid fuel missile which increases the range and reliability of the weapon. The missile is produced by the Industrial Group of Aerospace in the Khojair region east of Tehma. Other solid fuel missiles are produced by the Bakeri Industrial Group. Revolutionary Guards Corps Air Force commander, Pasdar Salami falsely claimed that these missiles are no threat to Iran’s neighbors. Then he said,
“the message of this maneuver for those greedy countries that intend to evoke horror is that we are able to immediately, decisively and strongly react and answer back the evil intentions of the enemy.”

There should be no doubt that Iran continues to work towards full nuclear delivery capability. It should also be apparent that Iran continues to lie about the extent of its nuclear and associated programs. Should Iran obtain first strike capability, all of the Middle East and much of Southern and Central Europe will be at risk. Stratfor has reported on war games to be held in Israel next week. This will 'make waves' throughout the entire gulf region.
American warships and transport aircraft have been arriving in Israel ahead of a major ballistic missile defense exercise slated for the week of Oct. 12. The exercise will not only be noteworthy for its size and complexity, but for the integration and interoperability it hopes to achieve. In addition, it comes amidst a mounting crisis with Iran and will be watched closely by all sides. Military exercises like Juniper Cobra do not take place in a vacuum. In 2007, Juniper Cobra was held in March and at that point, the 2009 exercises were also scheduled for spring. It seems that the schedule changed and regardless of the reason, the timing of these exercises will ratchet up already sky-high tensions between the West and Iran.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
They will be testing and implementing new Ballistic Missile Defenses.

Strategy may take shape following these maneuvers to ensure oil supply. The Strait of Hormuz, facilitates movement of 90 percent of the Persian Gulf’s oil exports (40 percent of the global seaborne oil trade) as well as all of the gulf’s liquefied natural gas exports. At a time when the world economies are reeling from the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, war there presents a very serious threat. Despite disincentives for Iran to try and close the strait, it can not be ruled out. With so much at stake risks are very high.

al Qaeda in America - Ready or Not

Sphere: Related Content



From Northeast Intelligence Network:

There are clear and present dangers throughout North America despite some who claim these warnings are manipulated, exaggerated or are simply useful distractions

Some current press reports blaming NYPD, members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force, or other law enforcement officials for acting too quickly against an Afghan national and his associates must be addressed. Not only are such accusations misplaced, but malicious at their core. If there is any blame to be placed, it must be laid directly at the feet of the Islamic advocacy groups who have launched a crusade of political correctness against law enforcement, encumbering them under the threat of legal action. It must also be placed at the feet of those government officials who have acquiesced to the very public and well-funded disinformation campaign that asserts the loyalty of fundamental Muslims is to America rather than to their religious ideology. There is NO evidence to support that contention.

Over a year’s worth of field investigation and covert surveillance of terrorist activity in the U.S., encompassing thousands of man hours and countless federal, state and local law enforcement assets was apparently compromised by a single phone call made by one man - a Queens, New York mosque leader. The reported actions of that man, in the context presented in a criminal complaint filed last week, has made New York and all cities across the US less safe today from possible terrorist attacks. That phone call tipped off a man trained by al Qaeda in explosives that he was under surveillance by investigators. As a result, it is believed that as many as 18 Islamic terrorists and their explosives remain at large - last known to be in the greater New York City area. READ the REST:

From Stratfor:

Three defendants charged with lying to federal agents conducting a foreign and domestic terrorism investigation appeared in federal courts Sept. 21 in Denver and Brooklyn after they were arrested Sept. 19. It appears that this case was an attempt by the federal government to disrupt an attack rather than to prosecute the suspects under the harshest of possible penalties.

Najibullah Zazi, Mohammed Wali Zazi (Najibullah’s father) and Imam Ahmad Wais Afzali — all of Afghan descent — appeared in federal courts Sept. 21 after being arrested Sept.19. Federal agents had been investigating the trio for several weeks after receiving intelligence indicating the three men (and possibly others) were involved in a plot that would have targeted the New York subway system. Federal authorities also issued renewed warnings to local law enforcement Sept. 21 of attacks against mass transit. There have been a number of attacks against railways overseas and several plots directed against New York’s subway system, which STRATFOR has been anticipating for several years. Detonating even a small explosive on a train car — a contained area with a high density of people — could lead to numerous fatalities, demonstrated by the 2004 Madrid and 2007 Mumbai attacks.

Najibullah Zazi, a second-generation U.S. citizen, had traveled to Peshawar, Pakistan, on Aug. 28, 2008 (he claimed to be visiting his wife) and returned to New York four and a half months later in January 2009. Then, on Sept. 9, Zazi departed Aurora, Colorado, and drove approximately 27 hours to New York while being followed by the FBI. Meanwhile, on Sep. 10, NYPD interviewed Afzali, who had been utilized as a source in the past, and questioned him on Najibullah and Mohammed Wali Zazi. (NYPD sources have been instrumental in infiltrating and breaking up a number of plots.)

On Sept. 11, federal agents recorded a 20-minute conversation between Najibullah Zazi, Afzali and Mohammed Wali Zazi, and then seized Najibullah’s laptop computer. The phone conversations consisted of Afzali warning Najibullah Zazi that authorities had interviewed him and said that they had asked questions about Zazi.
The laptop computer that was seized contained electronic images of handwritten notes on how to manufacture, handle and initiate explosive charges, detonators and “components of a fusing system.” According to a criminal complaint in the case, Zazi admitted to investigators that he had received training from al Qaeda members in the Federally Administrated Tribal Areas of northwest Pakistan, a known hotbed of jihadist activity. Charging the three for lying to federal investigators, however, is unlikely to result in stiff sentences without material evidence demonstrating that the three selected and surveilled targets, collected bomb-making materials or raised money for conducting an attack. A conviction could result in very little jail time (if any), especially if the men do not have a criminal background — and there is no indication that any of them do.

It does not necessarily require imprisonment to break up a plot. Simply detaining the group and prosecuting them will likely disrupt the plot enough to halt or delay any pending operations — even if there are others involved. In such a high-risk environment, during such a sensitive time as the U.N. General Assembly, it is not surprising that the FBI arrested the group when it did, despite not having the most blockbuster of cases against the suspects. READ the REST:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The growing undercurrent of support for the Taliban within the New York Afghan community is deliberately (ignored) hidden from mainstream America by the pressure of political correctness exerted by various Islamic advocacy groups. While organizations such as the Council on American Relations (CAIR) claim that radical Islam is virtually non-existent or hyped by bigots and racists, the hatred of America continues to grow virtually unchecked on the streets of New York. The bullied media is misdirected or simply looks away, thereby perpetuating the illusion that radical Islam is the exception rather than the norm in the heart of “little Kabul”. Meanwhile, fundamental Islam is permitted to metastasize within our own society.

 In his clear cut conclusion the top American commander in Afghanistan forces a stark and urgent choice on President Obama and his administration.“The status quo will lead to failure” is the quote from General Stanley McChrystal that bluntly sums up his report now being debated by policy makers in DC. The report makes clear his view that ultimate success in Afghanistan requires overcoming two main threats: “The insurgency and a crisis of confidence among Afghans in their own government. Both must be addressed, and together they require more resources”, he says. “Insufficiently addressing either principal threat will result in failure,” the general concludes. The McChrystal assessment will test the President’s assertion, just six months ago, that he would put the war effort on a path to success by providing what the previous White House didn’t.

Will He?

Given the backpedaling clearly evident in the recent statements from the administration, it seems a new strategy is considering expanding counterterror operations in Pakistan to refocus on eliminating al-Qaida instead of mounting a major military escalation in Afghanistan. Two senior administration officials said Monday that the renewed fight against the terrorist organization could lead to more missile attacks on Pakistan terrorist havens by unmanned U.S. spy planes. Top aides to President Obama said he still has questions and wants more time to decide. The officials said the administration would push ahead with the ground mission in Afghanistan for the near future, and leave the door open for sending more U.S. troops. But Obama’s top advisers, including Vice President Joe Biden, have indicated they are reluctant to send many more troops — if any at all — in the immediate future. In weekend interviews, Obama emphasized that disrupting al-Qaida is his “core goal” and worried aloud about “mission creep” that moved away from that direction. “If it starts drifting away from that goal, then we may have a problem,” he said.

Obviously Politicians believe advisors know more than Generals, (Pfft) so… Being a savvy Commander General McChrystal consulted with an astute advisor, someone not immersed in the political machinations of White House and DC politics.

Anthony Cordesman, a military analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies who advised McChrystal in Kabul this summer, said in a telephone interview Monday that “Obama has invited doubt about his commitment to succeeding in Afghanistan by putting off a decision on devoting more resources”.

“The truth is that we don’t have that much time,” Cordesman said. “Waiting to see what happens with existing resources and existing troop levels, when the commanding general has already said that’s an unacceptable risk, basically invites defeat.”

He added:
“The president has yet to show he can lead in this war.”

His assesment PDF is HERE:

Defense Secretary Robert Gates has said, however, that he does not believe that a scaled-back approach which focuses on killing al-Qaida leaders — rather than the McChrystal view that counterterrorism operations should be part of a broader campaign to build up Afghan support for their government — is the right answer. “The notion that you can conduct a purely counterterrorist kind of campaign and do it from a distance simply does not accord with reality,” Gates told reporters earlier this month. “The reality is that even if you want to focus on counterterrorism, you cannot do that successfully without local law enforcement, without internal security, without intelligence” — without a major presence in Kabul. McChrystal’s immediate superior, Gen. David Petraeus, sees it similarly in an op-ed article published Friday. “He is the first to recognize not just the extraordinary capabilities but also the limitations of counterterrorism forces in Afghanistan,” Petraeus wrote in The Times of London.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Many have remembered Afghan history and point out...
"no one wins there"... I will not argue that, however we must not LOSE voluntarily thus a draw = Win.


To Quote Prof Cordesman: "The US will fail, however, if the Administration and the Congress temporize and delay. Failing to fully implement a new strategy focused on a realistic effort to create true Afghan partners, while allowing domestic politics to supersede the needed troops and funds, will lead to such a defeat. It is clear that the Obama Administration and the US Congress can decisively waste the last opportunity for victory over the coming months by not giving the US team in Afghanistan the authority, support, and resources needed to win"

Iran's New Revolution

Sphere: Related Content








Iran is undertaking a new phase in it's war against Infidels.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (I'm a nut job) declares A new revolution has begun, as the Islamic Revolution finds it's “true destiny”. He speaks with genuine optimism and enthusiasm, and says it will not be limited to Iran. The videotape below clearly shows Ahmadinejad truly believes things have changed that makes this moment in history special and directly related to Iran’s role in Allah’s plans. Can you say 13th Imam?

The video has bad news for Iranian students and dissidents. Ahmadinejad calls for an expansion of “Islamic culture” in the universities, attributing domestic unrest to a lack of training of the younger generation. They can expect a complete rewriting of their curriculum to “Islamize” (ie radicalize) their education, along with a stricter puritan-like enforcement of Sharia law. On it's face it appears a new Iranian cultural revolution is being planned and executed.

Purging dissident elements and extreme measures to silence the opposition, the language of Ahmadinejad and recent actions taken by the Iranian government strongly indicate that the regime has becoming more radical in the belief that doing so now is obedience to Allah. The capturing of Iranian weapons in Afghanistan, the increased violence in Iraq, the escalation of violence between the Yemeni government and Iranian-backed Houthi rebels, and the arrest of an al-Qaeda cell in Kuwait trained by their colleagues in Iran show that they are increasing support for a “new revolution” beyond their borders.

‘Bipartisan’ Health Bill Fails to Unify!

Sphere: Related Content








The Senate Health Care Bill is out and while there is no 'public option'... (except medicaid) the number that will cause many to wince is 13%... That’s the share of family income that the Baucus plan envisions middle-class American families having to pay in health insurance premiums before co-payments, deductibles and other cost sharing. Is it affordable for you?? NY Times story HERE: Bill PDF HERE

Below is an obvious argument to keep politicians out of this process.

Tucked inside is a provision that could provide billions of dollars for walking paths, streetlights, jungle gyms, and even farmers’ markets. The add-ons - characterized as part of a broad effort to improve the nation’s health “infrastructure’’ - appear in both the House and Senate versions of the bill.

Critics argue the provision is an obvious effort to insert pork-barrel spending into a bill that has been widely portrayed to the public as dealing with expanding health coverage and cutting medical costs. Senator Mike Enzi, a Wyoming Republican, ridicules the local projects, asking: “How can Democrats justify the wasteful spending in this bill?’’ But advocates defend the proposed spending as a necessary way to promote healthier lives and, in the long run, cut medical costs. “These are not public works grants; they are community transformation grants,’’ said Anthony Coley, a spokesman for Kennedy, chairman of the Senate health committee whose healthcare bill includes the projects.READ the REST


If Pork isn't enough to sway you from GOV CARE, ask the Doctors!

Two of every three practicing physicians oppose the medical overhaul plan under consideration in Washington, and hundreds of thousands would think about shutting down their practices or retiring early if it were adopted, a new IBD/TIPP Poll has found. These numbers contradicts the claims of not only the White House, but also doctors' own lobby — the powerful American Medical Association — both of which suggest the medical profession is behind the proposed overhaul (imagine that).

It also calls into question whether an overhaul is even doable; 72% of the doctors polled disagree with the administration's claim that the government can cover 47 million more people with better-quality care at lower cost.

Have We Forgotten?

Sphere: Related Content


Following the immediate aftermath of Sept. 11 2001 our country was united. Politics became trivial and there were no hyphenated Americans, just Americans. As the haunting images poured into our televisions, men and women cried! 8 short years later our nation is more divided than at any time since the 60's. As in the 1860's march to our civil war and the 1960's march to civil rights we are polarized and paralyzed by divisiveness.

Meanwhile the enemies of liberty and freedom continue attacking.

Writing in the New York Post,
Ralph Peters asks a stinging question and probes why.

New York Post | Sept. 11, 2009
By Ralph Peters

Eight years ago today, our homeland was attacked by fanatical Muslims inspired by Saudi Arabian bigotry. Three thousand American citizens and residents died.

We resolved that we, the People, would never forget. Then we forgot.

We've learned nothing.

Instead of cracking down on Islamist extremism, we've excused it.

Instead of killing terrorists, we free them.

Instead of relentlessly hunting Islamist madmen,
we seek to appease them. READ the REST:


Regardless of ones political affiliations some facts must be faced and embraced to find our best path forward lest we fall upon history's scrap heap. Regardless of what was said in Cairo, Islamofascists are at war with U.S. This war against 'infidels' has been ongoing since the 6th century and words won't stop it.

Lt. Col. Allen West (US Army,Ret)

Hope-Nosis?
The next 2 weeks seem destined to become a watershed in American History. Amid distractions, planned and incidental, the “sheeple” are oblivious as forces of world domination have again been dealt a winning hand and we continue to get the “Royal Flush”.


Do not dismiss this as conspiracy for we are long past that phase. There are many players in this high stakes struggle for power and money, most have been in this “game” a long time. Use whatever moniker you prefer: Roman Clubbers, Build A Burgers, Illumined Nazis, Skull and Boneheads, Rockin Fellers, Rotten Childs.. reagrdless of the titles it's merely fingers of the same "iron" fisted globalist hand.

"It seems to me that the nature of the ultimate revolution with which we are now faced is precisely this: That we are in process of developing a whole series of techniques which will enable the controlling oligarchy who have always existed and presumably will always exist to get people to love their servitude."
(Huxley 1962 speech at Berkeley)
Transcript HERE: 1958 Interview with Mike Wallace HERE:



My favorite "His" story book uses the term “Principalities and Powers”, apropos! They have, at various times, ran countries and are on the verge of complete control.

So pour a cup of something strong and begin to understand this!

“Each man must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, which course is patriotic and which isn’t. You cannot shirk this and be a man. To decide against your conviction is to be an unqualified and excusable traitor, both to yourself and to your country, let men (or Homeland Security) label you as they may.” -- Mark Twain --


"Bad laws are the worst form of tyranny" -- Edmund Burke --

Al Gore has admitted (bragged really) the Congressional climate bill Known as Cap and Trade will help bring about “global governance.”

“I bring you good news from the U.S., “Gore said on July 7, 2009 in Oxford at the Smith School World Forum on Enterprise and the Environment, sponsored by UK Times. “Just two weeks ago, the House of Representatives passed the Waxman-Markey climate bill,” Gore said, noting it was “very much a step in the right direction.” President Obama has pushed for the passage of the bill in the Senate and attended a G8 summit this week where he agreed to attempt to keep the Earth's temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees C.
(Like he has that power)

Judi McLeod writing for Canda Free Press posted this
Full credit for the expose on the business partnership of Strong and Gore in this cap-and-trade reduction scheme should go to the investigative acumen of the Executive Intelligence Review (EIR).


The tawdry tale of the top two global warming gurus in the business world goes all the way back to Earth Day, April 17, 1995 when the future author of “An Inconvenient Truth” travelled to Fall River, Massachusetts, to deliver a green sermon at the headquarters of Molten Metal Technology Inc. (MMTI). MMTI was a firm that proclaimed to have invented a process for recycling metals from waste. Gore praised the Molten Metal firm as a pioneer in the kind of innovative technology that can save the environment, and make money for investors at the same time. “Gore left a few facts out of his speech that day,” wrote EIR. “First, the firm was run by Strong and a group of Gore intimates, including Peter Knight, the firm’s registered lobbyist, and Gore’s former top Senate aide.”

I’ll skip the science behind Cap & Trade, let's just follow the money.

It may be interesting to note that the Chicago Climate Exchange in spite of its hype, is a veritable rat’s nest. The largest shareholder in the Exchange is none other than Goldman Sachs. (Imagine That) Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley is its honorary chairman, The Joyce Foundation, which funded the Exchange also funded money for John Ayers’ Chicago School Initiatives. John is the brother of William Ayers. As Obamanomics morphs into "thug-O-nomics" the "Lost Planets Air-Boy" needs beware.

Pour another cup and continue with eyes wide open.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Obama Years Ago Helped Fund Carbon Program He Is Now Pushing Through Congress” is a News story by Ed Barnes.

In short, “While on the board of a Chicago-based charity,
Barack Obama helped fund a carbon trading exchange that will
likely play a critical role in the cap-and-trade carbon reduction
program he is now trying to push through Congress as President.”

That charity was the Joyce Foundation on whose board of
directors Obama served and which gave nearly $1.1 million in
two separate grants that were “instrumental in developing and
launching the privately-owned Chicago Climate Exchange, which
now calls itself “North America’s only cap and trade system
for all six greenhouse gases, with global affiliates and
projects worldwide.”

That’s just the beginning... and now you're beginning to See!

The “privately-owned” Chicago Climate Exchange is heavily
influenced by Obama cohorts Al Gore and Maurice Strong.

Maurice WHO?? Today, Maurice Strong sits atop the global environmental movement headed by the United Nations and its interlocking NGO's and tax-exempt foundations.

Strong is considered to be the person behind the globalization of the foundation-funded environmental movement, and was the Secretary-General of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment held in 1972, in Stockholm, Sweden.

He co-authored the 'Earth Charter' with Mikhail Gorbachev in 1992. It was Gorbachev who stated in 1996 that the "threat of environmental crisis will be the 'international disaster key' that will unlock the New World Order."

Strong was recruited by David Rockefeller at the age of 17 and groomed for the role he serves today. Despite not having a college education, he was a millionaire by his early 20's and wielded enormous power and influence. Already in 1972, at the time of this interview, there is talk of doomsday scenarios if people don't give up their rights and drastically alter the way they live. Also mentioned in the interview is zero growth, put forward by the Club of Rome in the late 60's/early 70's, which called for the control of population and economic growth, and was the precursor to what we see happening today with the US economy and infrastructure being gutted and sent overseas.

In this clip Strong discusses his proposal of licenses in order for women to give birth, which has been of much talk among the elite for the past several decades. In the 70's, David Rockefeller extended his praise to communist dictator of China, Mao Zedong, in an article published in the New York Times, for his country's one-child policy, which will be the model for the Western nations to follow in the future -- hence China's "Most Favored Nation" status granted by the UN.

For more information on Strong, see posting titled 'Eco-economic Warfare and the Planned Collapse of Western Civilization':

For years Strong and Gore have been cashing in on global warming.

Strong is on the board of directors of the Chicago Climate
Exchange, Wikipedia-described as “the world’s first and North
America’s only legally binding greenhouse gas emission
registry reduction system for emission sources and offset
projects in North America and Brazil.”

Gore, self-proclaimed Patron Saint of the Environment, buys
his carbon off-sets from himself–the Generation Investment
Management LLP, “an independent, private, owner-managed
partnership established in 2004 with offices in London and
Washington, D.C., of which he is both chairman and founding
partner. The Generation Investment Management business has
considerable influence over the major carbon credit trading
firms that currently exist, including the Chicago Climate
Exchange. Strong, the silent partner, is a man whose name
often draws a blank on the Washington cocktail circuit.
Even though a former Secretary General of the 1992 U N
Conference on Environment and Development (Rio Earth Summit)
and Under-Secretary General of the United Nations in
the days of an Oil-for-Food beleaguered Kofi Annan, the
Canadian born Strong is little known in the United States.

That’s because he spends most of his time in China where he he
has been (hiding out) working to make the communist country the
world’s next superpower. The nondescript Strong, nonetheless is the
big cheese in the underworld of climate change and is one of the main
architects of the failing Kyoto Protocol. The UN has for years longed to
find a way to implement a global tax (Obama favors this too).

We are witnessing an unprecedented, historic reshaping of
governments, culture, and economies by blunt force.

The world as we know it, will never be the same.

David Rockefeller said that millions would become cannon
fodder from that change. Bill Clinton’s former Deputy Secretary
Of State said this…
“In the 21st century, nations as we know them will be obsolete;
all states will recognize a single, global authority. National
sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all.”

- Strobe Talbot, President Clinton’s Deputy Secretary of State,
as quoted in Time Magazine, July 20th, l992.

You can just focus on a DOW rally that was given to you,
and paid for by your TARP dollars in order to keep you
distracted just long enough to ram-rod through cap & trade,
the nationalization of health care, the elimination of your
rights and liberties, and the looting of our US Treasury.

You can keep hoping:
that your home values will bounce back,
that you’ll get back the value of your 401K,
that the exodus of jobs will stop,
and that everything will just return to the way it was.

But you should begin to formulate an answer for the day when your children or grandchildren look you in the eye and ask why? Why you let this happen?

Most importantly: Did you try to stop it?

Yemen:On the Crossroads to WAR-UPDATE

Sphere: Related Content



















Yemen is smoking again...

The ancient struggle between Shia and Sunni threatens to engulf Yemen. The casulty count is over 2000 dead this month as US allies battle Iran's proxies on a second front of this undeclared war. As the House of Sauud strives to prevent itself from being surrounded by Shia dominated countries, Yemen's northern mountains have become a flash point as the government wages intense battles for control.


Debka lists 8 main features:

1. Two weeks ago, president Ali Abdullah Saleh's army launched the sixth round since the year 2000 of his war with the Houthis, deploying about 20,000 troops for a major offensive to dislodge the 15,000 Houthis from their mountain fastnesses (12-18,000 feet tall) in the northern province of Saada.

2. The Houthis are Zaydis who claim they adhere to the purest form of Shiite Islam. They are fighting to bring the true faith to Yemen by restoring the Zaydi imamate overthrown in 1962. Their name derives from the movement's founder, Badreddin al-Houthi, who was killed by the Yemeni army in 2004. The Houthi Shiites and Iranian Shia have nothing in common barring Tehran's exploitation of the Yemeni rebels as a proxy force (like the Lebanese Hizballah) for gaining Iran a military foot through the door to the Saudi Arabian border and the southern Arabian peninsula.

3. The sheer quantities of hardware the Iranians managed to transfer to the Houthis in two weeks amazed Washington, Sanaa, Riyadh and Cairo, even through Iran had previously displayed this capability by the speed with which it replenished and augmented Hizballah losses after the 2006 war against Israel. The Yemeni army is therefore hard put to quell the heavily-armed insurgents or even prevent the battles from spilling out of the Saada region into other parts of the country, including the capital.

4. Fearful that the conflict and Zaydi influence may seep across Yemen's northern border into the southern Saudi regions of Najran and Asir, Saudi Arabia has sent its air force to help the Yemeni army by pounding the Houthi strongholds in Saada's mountain villages.

5. The small 66,000 Yemeni army, lacking organized military stockpiles, soon began running out of ammunition and military equipment. The Egyptian army is running these necessary supplies to Yemen through a naval and aerial corridor.

6. The Obama administration has pitched in with financial assistance for the Saudi and Egyptian efforts to help Yemen. This was agreed at the meeting the US and Egyptian presidents held at the White House last Tuesday, Aug. 18. In this fashion, US president Barack Obama is making a stand against Iran alongside Hosni Mubarak and King Abdullah.

7. Just as the US and Israel were taken by surprise by the Iranian surrogate Hizballah's military capabilities in the 2006 Lebanon War, so too were the US and its allies astonished by the Houthi rebels' command of the battlefield. The Yemeni army's First Mechanized Infantry Division, fortified by every one of its six paratroop and commando brigades and Saudi air support, has proved unable in two weeks of combat to break into the rebels' mountain strongholds.

8. Without this breakthrough, the conflict threatens to spread and escalate into the biggest and most dangerous war to strike any part of Arabia in the last 18 years, ever since Saddam Hussein ordered the Iraqi army to invade Kuwait in 1991.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This activity frames the violent aftermath of Iran's election and the scope of our intent to battle radical Islam (regardless of who resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave) making war ON Iran inevitable!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
UPDATE:
Saudi Prince wounded in terror homicide bombing!


Debka Reports:
It is the first time in the eight-year anti-terror campaign launched by Saudi Arabia after the 9/11 attacks in the United States that a terrorist has got close enough to a Saudi royal for an attempted assassination. Muhammad bin Nayef, son and assistant of Interior Minister Prince Nayef who spearheads the kingdom's crackdown on al Qaeda, was injured Thursday night, Aug. 27, when a suicide bomber blew himself up at an open Ramadan gathering in Jeddah. He was officially termed lightly wounded. The king Abdullah rushed to visit him in hospital before he was reported discharged. Prince Muhammad had been spending most of his time in recent months in his Jeddah office on Saudi's Red Sea coast, running Saudi involvement in the Yemeni army's campaign to suppress a revolt backed by Iran and al Qaeda.

This indicates Saudi Royal Family efforts to destroy al Quedas presence have not been totally successful. It also signals that their support for the regime of President Saleh of Yemen is likely responsible for al Qaeda targeting the Royal in charge of the support program. Strategic significance of Yemen cannot be overstated and hostile control would jepordize flow of goods transiting the Red Sea or Suez Canal. Hostile control of Yemen could destabilize all countries along the western coast of the Red Sea and south at least as far as Kenya. Egypt would also be threatened as Hezbollah cells are infiltrating from Gaza.

Yemen is Smoking INDEED!

Democracy in Honduras - Update

Sphere: Related Content






Exiled Honduran President Manuel Zelaya is losing momentum in his attempt to regain credibility and position. In an interview with The Associated Press Foreign Minister Carlos Lopez clearly believes the nation’s interim government will outlast Zelaya. He said Zelaya will begin to be relevant as campaigning for elections begins and noted that even the candidate for Zelaya's own party does not support the ousted president any longer. "There will be a totally different context and once the campaigns begin, the obsession with Mr. Zelaya will start fading," Lopez said.

"The people are united and are willing to weather the five months until the elections," Lopez said. He was optimistic that other nations would recognize election results as legitimate. "Of course it will be recognized. There is no sense in talking about it not being recognized". Lopez held firm on refusing to permit Zelaya to return although Congress will debate the question of amnesty, part of a proposal by mediator President Oscar Arias of Costa Rica. Zelaya could be arrested if he returns to Honduras on charges of violating the constitution by ignoring a Supreme Court ruling concerning strict term limits. Congress voted to remove him from office unanimously. Zelaya complained that international mediation efforts to force his return have flagged. He accused the United States — Honduras' largest source of development aid and its biggest trade partner — of not being forceful enough against Micheletti, who has ignored sanctions threats and U.N. demands that Zelaya be reinstated. Interim President Micheletti has indicated he would be willing to resign in favor of a compromise but not Zelaya. U.S. State Department spokesman Ian Kelly urged Zelaya to be patient and give negotiations more time. Interview on current events HERE:

It is apparent however that time is running out on Zelaya.

This whole charade illustrates the leftist disdain for constitutional (republic) government that places limits on elected office holder’s power (i.e. consent of the governed)...
It is quickly becoming THE issue here in USA as well. The elitist's are using leftist ideology globally to further solidify their power. {Can you say Obamacare or Cap and Trade (TAX))

Former Monsanto Executive is Food Czar

Sphere: Related Content


Jeffrey Smith posted this:

When FDA scientists were asked to weigh in on what was to become the most radical and potentially dangerous change in our food supply—the introduction of genetically modified (GM) foods; secret documents now reveal that the experts were VERY concerned. Memo after memo described toxins, new diseases, nutritional deficiencies, and hard-to-detect allergens. They were adamant that the technology carried “Serious health hazards,” and required careful, long-term research, including human studies, before any genetically modified organisms (GMOs) could be safely released into the food supply.

But the biotech industry had rigged the game so that neither science nor scientists would stand in their way. They had placed their own man in charge of FDA policy and he wasn’t going to be swayed by feeble arguments related to food safety. No, he was going to do what corporations had done for decades to get past these types of pesky concerns. He was going to lie.

Dangerous Food Safety Lies

When the FDA was constructing their GMO policy in 1991-2, their scientists were clear that gene-sliced foods were significantly different and could lead to “different risks” than conventional foods. But official policy declared the opposite, claiming that the FDA knew nothing of significant differences, and declared GMOs substantially equivalent. This fiction became the rationale for allowing GM foods on the market without any required safety studies whatsoever! The determination of whether GM foods were safe to eat was placed entirely in the hands of the companies that made them—companies like Monsanto, which told us that the PCBs, DDT, and Agent Orange were safe.

GMOs were rushed onto our plates in 1996. Over the next nine years, multiple chronic illnesses in the US nearly doubled—from 7% to 13%. Allergy-related emergency room visits doubled between 1997 and 2002 while food allergies, especially among children, skyrocketed. We also witnessed a dramatic rise in asthma, autism, obesity, diabetes, digestive disorders, and certain cancers.

In January of this year, Dr. P. M. Bhargava, one of the world’s top biologists, told me that after reviewing 600 scientific journals, he concluded that the GM foods in the US are largely responsible for the increase in many serious diseases.

In May, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine concluded that animal studies have demonstrated a causal relationship between GM foods and infertility, accelerated aging, dysfunctional insulin regulation, changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system, and immune problems such as asthma, allergies, and inflammation

In July, a report by eight international experts determined that the flimsy and superficial evaluations of GMOs by both regulators and GM companies “systematically overlook the side effects and significantly underestimate “the initial signs of diseases like cancer and diseases of the hormonal, immune, nervous and reproductive systems, among others.”

The Fox Guarding the Chickens

If GMOs are indeed responsible for massive sickness and death, then the individual who oversaw the FDA policy that facilitated their introduction holds a uniquely infamous role in human history. That person is Michael Taylor. He had been Monsanto’s attorney before becoming policy chief at the FDA. Soon after, he became Monsanto’s Vice President and chief lobbyist. This month Michael Taylor became the senior advisor to the commissioner of the FDA. He is now America’s food safety czar.

Honduras Talks Break Down

Sphere: Related Content










AP is reporting from Costa Rica the mediated talks to resolve disputed removal of President Zelaya have fallen apart over the issue of Zelaya's return to Honduras to finish out his term. After four days the two sides seem at an impasse. The interim government said it was not acceptable for Zelaya to return.

Costa Rican President Oscar Arias has been mediating discussions in attempts at a gaining peaceful resolution to the forced removal of President Zelaya from Honduras.
"It was not possible to reach a satisfactory agreement. The Zelaya delegation fully accepted my proposal, but not that of Mr. Roberto Micheletti," Arias said, referring to the interim president sworn in by congress after the June 28 coup.


Arias said he will spend the next three days "working much harder to see if we can reach an agreement, because what is the alternative to dialogue?" On Saturday, Arias proposed a plan that would let Zelaya serve out the final months of his term, move up elections by one month to late October, grant a general amnesty and include representatives of the main political parties in a reconciliation government.

The Micheletti government endorsed several of his proposals on Sunday — but his foreign relations secretary, Carlos Lopez, rejected the overall plan, specifically citing the issue of Zelaya's return.

"Dear mediator ... I'm very sorry, but your proposals are unacceptable," Lopez said at a news conference after the talks. Arias' compromise, he added, "interferes with Honduran internal affairs."

The interim government offered instead to create a truth commission to "let the Honduran people and the international community see all the acts that led to the current situation," according to a letter signed by Lopez. It refused to budge on its insistence that Zelaya would be arrested and prosecuted if he returns, guaranteeing only that he would be given "due process."

Lopez told CNN en Espanol that his delegation would return to the Costa Rican capital on Wednesday "to continue our conversations."

Khammenei Inc - Takes Control in Iran

Sphere: Related Content
















The Guardian confirms assertions that the “Hidden Revolution” was well underway by “Khamenei Inc.” long before the current protests made headlines. In my June 22 post, citing a NY Times Op-Ed, the pieces began to fit together in such a way as to indicate Iran was being raped and pillaged by a thugocracy.
On the eve of today’s expected tenth anniversary protests commemorating the 1999 student uprising Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has taken control of the militia being used to crush the protest movement, according to a senior Iranian source.

The source, a politician with strong connections to the security apparatus, said that the leading role being played by Mojtaba Khamenei had dismayed many of the country's senior clerics, conservative politicians and Revolutionary Guard generals. But these conservatives are reluctant to challenge the Khameneis openly out of fear that any conflict would destabilise the Islamic Republic and weaken Iran in the region. Instead they will use their positions in the organs of state to make it hard for the supreme leader and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to govern.

"This game has not finished. The game has only just started," the source said, on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of his own position in Iran. He said Mojtaba had played a leading role in orchestrating Ahmadinejad's disputed election victory on 12 June and had led the backlash against protests through direct control of street militias, known as basiji.

"Mojtaba is the commander of this coup d'etat. The basiji are operating on Mojtaba's orders, but his name is always hidden in all of this. The government never mentions him," the Iranian politician said. "Everyone is angry about this. The maraji [Iran's most senior ayatollahs] and the clerics are angry, the conservatives are very angry and strongly critical of Mojtaba. This situation cannot continue with so many people on the top against it."

Ryan Mauro writes this:
The split among the religious elite is going to provide additional momentum for the protests that will emerge on July 9 and in the days thereafter, cracking the very theological foundations the regime justifies its existence upon. The Association of Researchers and Teachers of Qom, described by the New York Times as “the most important group of religious leaders in Iran,” has dismissed the election results. Following this announcement, the party of Rafsanjani, former president and current chairman of the Assembly of Experts, which chooses and dismisses the supreme leader, has officially stated its position that the elections were fraudulent.

Even when faced with this potentially fatal rebuke from religious leaders, the regime is hunkering down rather than offering any form of concession. Those that favor the general preservation of the theocratic nature of the regime but oppose Khamenei and Ahmadinejad personally for their transgressions and those that favor democratic transformation will provide a sandwiching effect from which no unpopular figurehead can survive indefinitely. Khamenei knows there is a tidal wave against him and only maximum force can keep his head barely above water. The drowning of the regime has begun — and it can only hold its breath for so long.

As this life and death struggle for the soul of Iran plays out in the streets, the battle for power continues in Qum. I pray the players listen with their hearts and resist any manipulation. The dream of a caliphate is not a national dream, rather it’s a fading dream of ideologues. You can not force anyone to believe something, humans must choose to believe. That is God given volition.

The Wise choose to use it in pursuit of truth.
