Bernie Gets The Max!

So...Bernard Madoff has been sentenced to 150 years in prison.

Good riddance...but the problem still exists: how are WE THE PEOPLE safeguarded from his ilk in the future?

Not by putting the Federal reserve in charge, that's for bloody sure! What's that old adage regarding foxes and henhouses...?

Here's a piece by Mantiq Altayr - Zionist Bullshit - it refers to a piece written by Aron Raskas in the Baltimore Sun - please find that piece below, then go to the link above and read his quite scathing refutation of the "facts" presented.

Settlements are no threat

By Aron U. Raskas

June 7, 2009

As the Obama administration moves to transform Palestinian arguments about Israeli settlements into U.S. policy, an examination of the facts underlying these issues is appropriate. There may be no better place to begin than the swimming pool at Rimonim, a Jewish settlement in the heart of the West Bank.

The scene is a familiar one. Families picnicking together. Mothers yelling at children to be careful. Young children calling out to moms to watch them do dangerous things.

But it is the view from the hilltop pool that is striking. It quickly dispels many of the myths that today masquerade as dogma concerning Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

As one looks out from Rimonim, the most telling fact is what one does not see. Over the miles of rolling hills that unfold across the landscape, there is not a village, building, home or even a herd of sheep to be seen. The scene is the same at other Jewish settlements as well.

Palestinian propaganda machines have for years purveyed the myth of Israeli settlements choking Palestinian communities the way commerce and residential developments have encroached upon rural America. Yet, in reality, nothing like this exists in the largely unsettled expanses of the West Bank.

When Mark Twain walked this land in 1867, he described in his book, Innocents Abroad, this very same "deserted" and "desolate country" with its "rocky and bare" landscape. Today, despite Palestinian efforts to portray it differently, not all that much has changed outside the few towns and villages that dot the land.

Even the pro-Palestinian group Peace Now concedes that Israeli settlements - mostly bedroom communities of Jerusalem or Tel Aviv - occupy less than 3 percent of the West Bank. More than 98 percent of Palestinians already live under the jurisdiction of the Palestinian Authority, and there is no shortage of land there for Palestinian expansion.

Moreover, Israeli professionals living a suburban life with their children in the vast expanse of these territories do not threaten or harm Palestinians. Israeli checkpoints and security measures have been implemented because Palestinians have seemed more interested in destroying Israel and killing Jews than establishing an independent Palestinian state.

Nor are Jewish settlements the result of Israeli colonial aspirations. Most represent the return of the Jewish people to the cities of their ancestors. As Twain painstakingly reported, Jews have lived here since time immemorial, and a drive through these territories highlights the Jewish history - cities, tombs and other landmarks - rooted in this land.

Yet it is not just ancient history that speaks to the great Jewish legacy. The Jewish presence has been a constant right up to modern times. While many bristle at the terms "Judea" and "Samaria," dismissing them as propaganda invented by extremist "settlers" for political ends, maps, photographs, travel guides and other books have throughout history described these territories by those time-honored names. Even United Nations resolutions - including, notably, the 1947 Partition resolution - used those terms.

Given this history, the rights of the Jewish people in these lands are rich, historic and firmly enshrined. While negotiations about sharing this land may be necessary for the sake of peace, they cannot proceed from a premise that these are "Palestinian lands" or occupied "Palestinian territory." They are, at most, "disputed territories."

Indeed, the Oslo Accords firmly recognized the issue of "settlements" as one of the "final status" issues to be addressed by negotiation after other, less difficult, issues were resolved.

It is wrong for the Obama administration to now seek to prejudice that delicate issue with pronouncements adopting the Palestinian narrative and actions designed to preclude the building of additions to homes and new units necessary to accommodate natural growth in existing Jewish settlements.

The thousands of young children who frequent the Rimonim pool look to the future like children anywhere. They seek only to grow up in peace, experience the joys of youth with sufficient room in their homes and schools and, ultimately, have the right to raise families in the communities that nurtured them from birth.

There is no morally sound reason for the Obama administration to challenge these basic rights.

Paterson Threatens NY Senators With Loss Of Pay; Mark Sanford Shows His Feet Of Clay

Dueling factions in Albany working on an agreement
By Tom Precious

ALBANY— Negotiators are working on an agreement so that state senators can begin passing long-stalled bills on Monday, the Democratic head of the GOP-led faction of the Senate said this morning.

Sen. Pedro Espada, in an interview at the Capitol, said he is confident a deal will be struck by tomorrow that will lead to "a resolution of the leadership issues and bring us back - 62 senators - to the Capitol on Monday."

"That's the course we're on," said Espada, the Bronx Democrat whose crossing the aisle on June 8 helped the Republicans take control of the Senate. He was made Senate president for his political help. A fellow Democrat who joined him in the coup has since flipped back, resulting in a 31-31 tie between the two factions.

Espada said staffs and legislative leaders have been talking all morning today about a deal that will keep intact "as close as we can" to the results of the June 8 coup that made him president and Sen. Dean Skelos, a Long Island Republican, the majority leader.

The lawmaker stressed that the sides for the first time are having cordial discussions. "You cannot have an honest dialogue with shields and swords raised and pointed at each other. We've gotten to the point where we're relaxed with each other to really start a negotiation in earnest," Espada said.

Espada said he realizes both factions want to come out of the talks with a "win win for everybody." Democrats have insisted they want at least one of the leadership posts taken during the coup.

Asked if the talks could lead to the Democrats getting one of those posts, Espada said, "We'll let's see what happens. If we approach it philosophically with a win win, if we try to live up to as close as we can to what happened legitimately and legally on June 8 then I think it's real progress."

Asked if that might mean he'd be willing to relinquish his title, Espada said, "No, because that would not be accurate."

Both sides at 3 p.m. are going into an extraordinary session ordered by Gov. David Paterson. Unless a major breakthrough occurs, one idea being floated is that the 31 Democrats will gavel into a session and then gavel out without taking up any bills because they will be one vote short of a quorum. Then Espada and the Republicans will gavel in and do the same.

The governor on Wednesday had vowed court action if the chamber shuttered during a special session that he had ordered.

Paterson's office issued a statement late Wednesday saying there was no need to seek a court order to get senators back to work.

"The leadership from both the Republicans and Democrats has notified my office that they will attend tomorrow's Extraordinary Session, Paterson's statement said. "By complying with their constitutionally mandated obligations, there will be no need to seek a court order tomorrow. However, I will continue to use every power at my disposal to ensure that the Senate gets back to the people's business."

When senators meets today, they will consider 10 new bills that Paterson wants approved.

Missing from today’s agenda are controversial bills Paterson sought Wednesday, such as one to legalize same-sex marriage.

While they will come to session, Democrats already contended that the gatherings are likely illegal. They insist they cannot act on legislation without the Assembly also here in special session. They pushed that point Wednesday by holding only a five-minute session after declaring Paterson’s call for a session unconstitutional.

“Are we kidding?” snapped Paterson, saying he would not call the Assembly back to have it reconsider bills that it already has approved. The Assembly had a simple retort: “The Assembly has passed these bills,” said Dan Weiller, an Assembly Democratic spokesman.

So went Day 17 of “Albany Held Hostage.”

It began with Democrats locking themselves in the chamber — two at a time in two-hour shifts — at 6 a. m. One would sit at the podium, the other in the majority leader’s chair to carry out what they believe is a legal statement that the Democrats control the house. At one point, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani checked in from afar, saying the state should hold a constitutional convention to remedy the parliamentary showdown now under way.

Neither side will recognize the other’s leadership claims — meaning that the Legislature has become, in essence, tricameral: an Assembly and two Senates. After a dueling session Tuesday, which saw shouting as lawmakers ran two sessions at the same time in the chamber, Republicans boycotted the Wednesday session.

Espada responded to the governor’s tongue-lashings Wednesday. “We don’t need lectures,” he said, accusing the governor of wanting “to be the ringleader to the circus” at the Capitol.

Espada and the GOP called for binding arbitration; Democrats said that would take too long, since dozens of state and local laws are set to expire Tuesday without Senate approval.

Earlier, Republicans were back in court, this time as plaintiffs. They want a state judge to order the Democratic-appointed Senate secretary — the chamber’s top staffer — to stop hindering GOP-led sessions. Angelo Aponte, who does not recognize the GOP control, has blocked access to actual bills, locked doors, and turned off microphones and cameras that supply Internet coverage.

State Supreme Court Justice Thomas McNamara, who a week ago tossed out a case by Democrats asking him to settle the coup dispute, was told by a GOP lawyer that the Senate under Aponte had been turned into a Third World-like chamber. A Democratic lawyer said the judge has no jurisdiction over internal Senate matters.

McNamara pleaded with the sides to resolve the dispute — for the good of the state. “I guess I’m talking like a human being, but I don’t understand what’s going on. You guys have to resolve this,” said the judge, who will rule Friday.

Paterson aides made sure that the media were on hand when his counsel, Peter Kiernan, hand-delivered to Senate Democratic and Republican lawyers copies of bills that the governor wanted considered Wednesday afternoon.

“The whole point of the governor calling these extraordinary sessions is to try to force the two sides to resolve this nonsense and get a working and functioning [Senate] majority,” Kiernan said, “because it’s paralyzing this state.”

Remember that thing, fellow Americans? Written on hemp paper? Describes our rights? Shows established guidelines for proper government?

Yeah...that little thing.

Once again, kudos to Governor Paterson for his attempt to reestablish the will of WE THE PEOPLE.

In other news...Mark Sanford, once a contender for the Republican candidacy for 2012, has now screwed the pooch (no insult intended to the woman involved in the extramarital affair).

Child Porn Link In D.C. Shooting

Before I get into this obvious bit of scumbaggery, I'll start with this very happy link - U.S. intelligence 'unequivocally opposed' to parole for Pollard - thanks to Mike Rivero for the link.

Onto the nonsense. Here's the Newsday article:

WASHINGTON - Child pornography was found on a computer belonging to the white supremacist charged with shooting and killing a security guard at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, the FBI said in court documents.

Agents found the material on a desktop computer seized from the Annapolis, Md., apartment where 88-year-old James von Brunn lived with his son and son's fiancee, FBI Special Agent Ronald Farnsworth said in an affidavit filed Wednesday in support of a search warrant. Investigators searched the home last Thursday, taking more than 30 items, including ammunition, computers, thumb drives, CDs, memory cards, cell phones and videos.

Authorities will analyze who had access to the computer to determine whether the pornography was von Brunn's, or if it could have belonged to someone else, prosecutors said. No decisions on charges have been made. The documents didn't say what form the pornography was in, or how much of it was there.

In separate documents filed on Wednesday, the FBI said it found 35 rounds of .22-caliber ammunition in a search last Thursday of von Brunn's car, which was parked outside of the Washington, D.C., museum during the shooting a day earlier.

Investigators said they also found a notebook in the car with handwritten notes saying, " The Holocaust is a lie. Obama was created by Jews. Obama does what his Jew owners tell him to do.

Jews captured America's money. Jews control the mass media." Von Brunn faces murder charges in the death of Stephen T. Johns and remains hospitalized after being hit in the face by guards who returned fire.

The FBI has said he is likely to survive. A hearing is set for Monday for an update on his condition. No date has been set for von Brunn's initial court appearance.

So...the line being offered is that he is responsible for the death of the security guard, who was wounded in his back...a wound that most likely came from his colleagues. Also, now, he dabbles in child porn, a crime guaranteed to remove any possible support he may have.

In my opinion, James von Brunn is being used as a catalyst for gun control and "hate crime" laws. He is being demonized for his views, but I would implore those who can discern facts from vitriol to read his book, and ask yourself: are the things he wrote about in his book actually occurring and/or has occurred?

Let's all keep an open mind...and remember Benjamin Franklin's warning: "Those who choose security over liberty will end up possessing neither".

IT’S OFFICIAL: ‘Al-Qaeda’ spokesman Adam Gadahn (a.k.a. Pearlman) is scion of Jewish ADL

Mossad's 9/11Even the (Jewish-run) mainstream media now admits that ‘Adam Ghadan’ -- an ‘Al-Qaeda’ spokesman known for making absurd calls-to-arms against ‘infidels’ and ‘Zio-Crusaders’ -- is, in fact, the grandson of a prominent board member of the Jewish Anti-Defamation League:

The Los Angeles Times: ‘Gadahn's grandfather was Dr. Carl K. Pearlman, a well-known Orange County urologist who died in 1998.’

Haaretz: ‘Gadahn's grandfather was well-known urologist Carl Pearlman, an active member of the Jewish community in Orange County California.’

The Orange County Register (2006): Carl Pearlman’s activism included ‘serving as the first local chairman of the Bonds for Israel campaign and then as chairman of the United Jewish Welfare Fund. He was on the board of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL)…’

American Al-Qaeda member Adam Gadahn tells of Jewish roots in video
The Los Angeles Times
June 14, 2009

Adam Gadahn, a Southern California-raised man self-described as American Al-Qaeda has released a new video in which he talks about his Jewish ancestry.

Gadahn, known as "Azzam the American", lived in Garden Grove in the 1990s after growing up on a goat farm in rural Riverside County. The FBI said he converted to Islam as a youth, left the United States around 1998 and later was associated with senior Al Qaeda lieutenant Abu Zubaida in Pakistan and attended training camps in Afghanistan.

In the new video, obtained by CNN, Gadahn talks about his background. "Let me here tell you something about myself and my biography, in which there is a benefit and a lesson," Gadahn said. "Your speaker has Jews in his ancestry, the last of whom was his grandfather."

Gadahn's grandfather was Dr. Carl K. Pearlman, a well-known Orange County urologist who died in 1998. Pearlman, who was Jewish, received a community-service award in 1985 from the Orange County chapter of the National Conference of Christians and Jews, which has since changed its name to the National Conference for Community and Justice, for his work in the expansion of St. Joseph Hospital in Orange.

In the video, Gadahn refers to his grandfather, saying he was “a zealous supporter of the usurper entity, and a prominent member of a number of Zionist hate organizations. ... He used to repeat to me what he claimed are the virtues of this entity and encouraged me to visit it, specifically the city of Tel Aviv, where relatives of ours live," he said.

American Al-Qaida member acknowledges his Jewish roots
Haaretz (Israel)
June 14, 2009

An American Al-Qaida member has for the first time acknowledged his Jewish ancestry, in an official video message released over the weekend by the international terrorist network.

Adam Yahiye Gadahn -- who also goes by the name Azzam the American -- declared his roots in a video which surfaced on Saturday, using the opportunity to urge Muslims to use "our weapons, funds and Jihad against the Jews and their allies everywhere."

"Let me here tell you something about myself and my biography, in which there is a benefit and a lesson," Gadahn says in the video, speaking in Arabic with English subtitles. "Your speaker has Jews in his ancestry, the last of whom was his grandfather."

Gadahn, 30, was raised in rural California and converted to Islam in the mid-1990s, when he moved to Pakistan and joined Al-Qaida. In 2006, the United States has charged him with treason and with providing material support to Al-Qaida. The FBI has placed him on its most wanted list and is offering a $1 million reward for his capture.

In the video, Gadahn describes his grandfather as a "Zionist" and "zealous supporter of the usurper entity, and a prominent member of a number of Zionist hate organizations… He used to repeat to me what he claimed are the virtues of this entity and encouraged me to visit [Israel], specifically the city of Tel Aviv, where relatives of ours live."

Gadahn's grandfather was well-known urologist Carl Pearlman, an active member of the Jewish community in Orange County California.

Gadahn says that despite his grandfather's attempt to impart the ideology, he could never embrace "the Jews' rape of Muslim Palestine."

How can a person with an ounce of self-respect possibly stand in the ranks of criminals and killers who have no morals, no mercy, no humanity and indeed, no honor?" Gadahn says of Zionism. "Isn't it shameful enough for a person to carry the citizenship of America, the symbol of oppression and tyranny and advocate of terror in the world?"

Although Gadahn's Jewish roots have been reported before in the media, terrorism analyst Laura Mansfield told CNN that this was the first official acknowledgement. According to Mansfield, the video was probably taped in spring, prior to U.S. President Barack Obama's address to the Muslim world in Cairo

Here’s another article on the same subject by CNN, which, while neglecting to mention the name ‘Pearlman’ once, provides what now unfortunately passes for ‘analysis’:

American al-Qaeda member acknowledges Jewish ancestry
June 13, 2009

In a new anti-Israel, anti-U.S. video, an American al Qaeda member makes reference to his Jewish ancestry for the first time in an official al-Qaeda message.

In the video, Adam Yahiye Gadahn, also known as Azzam the American, discusses his roots as he castigates U.S. policies and deplores Israel's offensive in Gaza that started in late December 2008 and continued into January. [This is an obvious device aimed at associating sympathy for the besieged Palestinians with the evil ‘Al-Qaeda,’ perpetrators of the heinous 9/11 attacks, in the bemused mind of the average American -- 800]

"Let me here tell you something about myself and my biography, in which there is a benefit and a lesson," Gadahn says, as he elicits support from his fellow Muslims for "our weapons, funds and Jihad against the Jews and their allies everywhere."

"Your speaker has Jews in his ancestry, the last of whom was his grandfather," he says.

Growing up in rural California, Gadahn embraced Islam in the mid-1990s, moved to Pakistan and has appeared in al Qaeda videos before.

He was indicted in the United States in 2006 on charges of treason and material support to al-Qaeda, according to the FBI. Gadahn is on the FBI's Most Wanted List, with a reward of up to $1 million leading to his capture. FBI records show Gadahn's date of birth as September 1, 1978.

The video -- in which Gadahn speaks Arabic, with English subtitles -- surfaced on Saturday. This account is based on an English transcript provided by As-Sahab Media, the media production company used by al Qaeda.

Gadahn's Jewish ancestry has been reported in the news media. But terrorism analyst Laura Mansfield says it is the first time Gadahn acknowledged his Jewish ancestry in an official al Qaeda message.

Gadahn says his grandfather was a "Zionist" and "a zealous supporter of the usurper entity, and a prominent member of a number of Zionist hate organizations."

"He used to repeat to me what he claimed are the virtues of this entity and encouraged me to visit it, specifically the city of Tel Aviv, where relatives of ours live," says Gadahn, referring to Israel.

He says his grandfather gave him a book by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called "A Place Among the Nations" -- in which the "rabid Zionist" sets out "feeble arguments and unmasked lies to justify the Jews' rape of Muslim Palestine."

But Gadahn says that despite his youth at the time, he didn't heed his grandfather's words.

"How can a person with an ounce of self-respect possibly stand in the ranks of criminals and killers who have no morals, no mercy, no humanity and indeed, no honor?" he says in reference to Zionists and Israel.

"Isn't it shameful enough for a person to carry the citizenship of America, the symbol of oppression and tyranny and advocate of terror in the world?"

Mansfield thinks the video may have been made between late April and mid-May, before President Obama's speech in Cairo, Egypt, addressing U.S. relations with Muslims.

Gadahn notes Obama’s inauguration, Netanyahu's election in February, and Obama's speech in Turkey in April.

Specifically mentioning the Gaza offensive and citing other hot spots such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Chechnya and Somalia, where the "Zio-Crusader alliance" is fighting his "brothers," he says "this open-faced aggression" comes as Obama has risen to power. [By stressing the notion of a ‘Zio-Crusader alliance,’ Gadahn -- in actuality a Mossad operative -- is simply trying to make Al-Qaeda appear as a common enemy to both Christians and Jews, thus cementing the unholy alliance between badly misled ‘Christian Zionists’ and Israel -- 800]

He scorns Obama's statements in his inaugural address and in Turkey that America isn't and won't be at war with Islam, and "other deceptive, false and sugarcoated words of endearment and respect." He says Obama's language is similar to words Netanyahu uttered in the Knesset in 1996.

Gadahn also backs the idea of targeting "Zio-Crusader" interests anywhere in the world, not just "within Palestine."

Finally, note this September 2006 article from the Orange County Register -- the first of three parts -- which explicitly states that Dr. Carl K. Pearlman was not only 'active in the Jewish community,' but a card-carrying board member of the Jewish ADL:

Radical conversion
The Orange County Register
September 24, 2006

SANTA ANA -- When Dr. Donald Martin took over as chief of the urology department at Orange County General Hospital in 1969, he felt lucky.

He inherited the job from Dr. Carl K. Pearlman, then 60, a highly respected doctor who was gracious and generous to a young man of 39.

Martin came to know Pearlman as a good doctor, a social activist, and a mentor to many young men training in medicine. So he wasn't surprised in the mid-1990s when Pearlman told him he was taking in his grandson.

"Carl was very sweet," Martin recalled. "He said, 'He's having some problems, so I'll take him under my roof, under my wing.'"

Pearlman died in 1998, and Martin didn't think about his friend's confidence until six years later.

That's when, in May 2004, U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft announced that Pearlman's grandson, Adam Yahiye Gadahn, was part of a group of Islamic fundamentalists being sought by the FBI for questioning because of ties to al-Qaida. Gadahn was "armed and dangerous," the FBI said.

Martin was astonished to learn that a young man related to Pearlman, a Jew who won a humanitarian award for promoting peace among religions, could be part of one of the fiercest anti-Semitic terror organizations in the world. A family known for its love of social tolerance, education and the arts suddenly had to answer for violence-spewing videos featuring Gadahn, now known as "Azzam the American," an angry and articulate voice calling for the streets of his own country "to run red with blood."

"I often think of how heartbroken he'd be," Martin said of his old friend. "To have this happen to him would have been very painful. It's unbelievable." The three generations of Pearlmans -- Carl Pearlman, his son, Phil, and grandson, Adam -- were intelligent men who lived their lives according to their deeply held convictions. They loved music, were described as leaders, and all sought change in the world.

But the similarities end there. Because father to son, there was not only rebellion against the elder, as might be expected, but an extreme reaction to birthright and, ultimately, the rejection of traditional society.

Carl Pearlman, a leading Orange County doctor who championed new medical technologies, had a son who changed his name to Seth Gadahn and opted to live off the land.

Seth Gadahn's son, Adam, home-schooled in the family's wooden shack and raised in rural isolation, moved away from his family as a teenager and settled into his grandfather's Santa Ana home, discovering the Internet and Islam. He converted at a Garden Grove mosque in 1995 and fell in with a group of Islamic fundamentalists.

Adam Gadahn was described as a quiet and shy boy who came from a good family. Now 28, he's ranting righteously as propaganda minister for Osama bin Laden.

Like many life stories with such contrasts, Adam Gadahn's is marked by a quest for meaning and, at least in the beginning, hope.

Urban pioneers

Carl Pearlman, his wife, Agnes, and two small children arrived in Santa Ana in 1948 from the East Coast.

They were urban pioneers in Orange County, then a sleepy agricultural area defined by its fruit groves and pretty, pristine beaches. They took part in the activities cherished by the millions who were moving to California -- a life lived outdoors, including swimming in a backyard pool, golf and bike riding.

But the Pearlmans pushed this utopian new lifestyle further than most, and were bent on improving the common good, whether through arts education, helping the poor or promoting good health.

This lifestyle extended from the Orange County coast to the California mountains. From the early 1950s, the Pearlmans were some of the first board members of what was then called the Idyllwild School of Music and the Arts, a summer academy in a small, picturesque town in the San Jacinto Mountains. There, in 1957, the family built a cabin designed by John Lautner, an early disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright's and an important contemporary architect.

Lautner believed that human spaces must intersect with nature, and is known for landmarks from Los Angeles to Palm Springs. Now showcased as "the Pearlman cabin" among Lautner's body of work, it is "a cross between a log cabin and a treehouse," as one Lautner book says, a circular building that lies open to a beautiful, panoramic view of snow-capped Tahquitz Peak.

Agnes Pearlman was a fine pianist, and her baby grand piano commands a presence in front of the huge windows, signifying the importance of music to the family. Carl Pearlman played the violin, practicing daily until the age of 88. Their children, Phil and his sister Nancy, took part in the programs at the Idyllwild school, a 250-acre campus just down the road from the Pearlman cabin.

From the start, the school attracted legendary artists. Ansel Adams taught photography classes to kids and their parents from 1958 to 1960, and Meredith Willson was guest composer in 1949, writing parts of "The Music Man" there. Pete Seeger, guitar in hand, often led singalongs around the evening campfires after his folk music classes from 1957 to 1963.

Agnes Pearlman, now 83 and still living in the family's modest Santa Ana home, remains connected to the school, which has become the Idyllwild Arts Academy, a private college-preparatory and prestigious year-round boarding school. Most recently, she sent money to the school for its Hurricane Katrina relief effort.

A musical background

The passion for music was also reflected in Santa Ana, and Carl Pearlman was proud to say that the Orange County Philharmonic Society was started in his living room in the early 1950s. Nancy and Phil both graduated from Brickerward Preparatory, a now-defunct Orange County school that stressed arts education.

The Pearlmans held lively musical evenings for their friends, Carl on violin and Agnes on piano, sitting on a platform in their large living room.

They played classical music -- Vivaldi, Schubert, Dvorak -- but would finish with Carl's favorites, Rodgers and Hammerstein show tunes. Carl's partner, Dr. J. Bernard Miller, loved these evenings and said he always requested the song "Mame" from the musical of the same name.

The couple's children inherited this love of music, a passion that seems coupled with a sense of leadership. While attending UC Irvine in the mid-1960s, Phil Pearlman brought the latest bands to campus, and friends thought he would become a music promoter.

A guitar player, Phil Pearlman started a psychedelic band called Beat of the Earth, and its 1967 recording is a cult favorite often bootlegged by aficionados. Original recordings command $400 to $500.

Reflected in the third generation, Adam Gadahn had his own passion for music. It played out in a rebellious teenage phase as a love for demonic heavy metal, and he once wrote for a death-metal online magazine called Xenocide.

In a separate essay he penned about becoming a Muslim, Adam Gadahn told of his brief obsession with the genre, which he said "rightfully" alarmed his family.

Now, the boy who grew up with his grandfather's classical music and his father's 1960s sounds probably doesn't listen to music at all.

Osama bin Laden considers music "the flute of the devil" and covers his ears when he hears it, according to "The Looming Tower," a book about the al-Qaida leader by Lawrence Wright.

A doctor and duffer

Ever the doctor, Carl Pearlman also loved golf and would practice it as diligently as his daily violin, using a driving net in the back yard.

Warm and funny, he loved to tell jokes while with patients, at presentations for colleagues and when lecturing during 20 years of volunteer teaching at UC Irvine.

"As doctors, you'll learn to deal with adversity, frustration, setbacks and even catastrophe," Pearlman told his students. "But enough about golf."

Carl Pearlman was a leader in the early medical associations and hospitals that sprouted up around the county's growing population in the 1950s and '60s. During his 50-year career, he was chief of staff at Orange County General Hospital, chief of staff at Santa Ana Community Hospital (now Western Medical Center) and chairman of the first expansion fund for St. Joseph Hospital.

"He had an outstanding reputation when he was in practice," said Dr. Frank Amato, a former president of the Orange County Medical Association. "He was a good physician."

He was an activist in the early medical community, opposed to hospitals operating for profit and disgusted that the county facility was "nothing but a poor farm" when he arrived in 1949. Carl Pearlman offered his services for free when the parents of one of his patients, a 17-year-old Villa Park girl, couldn't afford a kidney transplant for their daughter in 1969.

Pearlman's friend, Dr. Donald Martin, was on the team of this historic local event, the county's first kidney transplant. Colleagues remember Pearlman as a champion of new medical technologies and one of the few doctors who were not threatened when the University of California system decided to create a teaching hospital in Orange County in the late 1960s, Martin said.

Community leader

Pearlman's activism included devoting time to the YMCA, serving as the first local chairman of the Bonds for Israel campaign and then as chairman of the United Jewish Welfare Fund.

He was on the board of the Anti-Defamation League [!!!] and in 1985 was honored with a humanitarian award by the Orange County chapter of the National Conference of Christians and Jews, now called the National Conference for Community and Justice.

Pearlman's friends said he didn't practice his religion by, say, belonging to a synagogue, and Agnes Pearlman came from a Christian background.

Holidays were social times, and Pearlman's partner, Miller, remembers the Pearlmans' annual Christmas party as one to look forward to every year. Their children were raised to think freely about religion, and Nancy Pearlman has said they were agnostics.

Although Pearlman's colleagues described him as "completely secular," they also recalled that he was a supporter of Israel, which was created just about the time the Pearlmans moved to their home in Santa Ana's Floral Park neighborhood.

"In our conversations, he had a very strong feeling for Israel," said Dr. Mel Singer, a pediatric cardiologist in Orange. "He felt very sincerely and deeply that he wanted that country to survive and make peace with the Arab nations around it."

A grandson's conversion

By the mid-1990s, about the time Pearlman took his grandson into his home, the doctor was already joking about his death. He was adamant that he didn't want a service but that he wanted to be buried in Riverside National Cemetery, so the family could wave at him as they drove to the cabin in Idyllwild.

He probably knew of Adam Gadahn's conversion to Islam, which occurred in 1995. But it's not known how the grandfather felt about Adam's new beliefs. Family members declined to comment for this story, although Nancy Pearlman confirmed most details.

Adam Gadahn had already taken one trip to Pakistan by the time of his grandfather's death on Oct. 18, 1998, at the age of 90. He returned to the United States and was with the family when his grandfather died. Soon thereafter, he left for Pakistan. It's believed he has never returned to America.

On the third anniversary of 9/11 in 2004, Adam Gadahn, his face partly covered in a black scarf, warned America and Britain via video that it was time for "either pragmatic surrender or a protracted, painful war."

"We love peace, but peace on our terms, peace laid down by Islam, not the so-called peace of occupiers and dictators," said Gadahn, punctuating his words with a finger pointed at the camera and adding that the followers of Osama bin Laden "love nothing better than the heat of battle, the echo of explosions and slitting the throats of the infidels." [Does anyone take this stuff seriously? -- 800]

Fiery speech from the grandson of a man who left behind a legacy built on justice, tolerance and helping the oppressed. In a little red notebook he always carried with him, Pearlman also left behind some of his favorite sayings, quotes that reinforced his beliefs. Among those is this one by Benjamin Franklin:

"There never was a good war or a bad peace."

Could The Election System In Iran Be Worse Than Ours; James von Brunn, Patriot?

Happy Monday!

So...let's begin with the Fed Caper by James von Brunn. Special thanks goes to Cryptome for the preservation of the page. reading this document, we are privy to some of the formative experiences in Jim's life. We go from those experiences to the idea of saving Americans from the usury of the Federal Reserve, and his abortive attempt to perform a citizen's arrest upon the board of the Federal Reserve.

The so-called "attack" upon the Holocaust Museum seems to me, as I stated in an earlier posting, a complete "psy-op" from beginning to end. What we do not know, however, is how Jim was motivated to appear at the museum with outdated firearms in hand; nor, how the demise of the security guard was actually effected. It was reported that he succumbed to "friendly fire"; I am waiting to hear more.

As far as the elections in Iran go...I don't know if, after our elections in 2000 and 2004, we should be the ones to fault anyone else's electoral system. In 2000, Jeb Bush, Katherine Harris and ChoicePoint DBT, along with the Supreme Court, decided who would be President of the United States. It was later determined that Albert "Global Warming's Gonna Make Me Rich!" Gore actually won the election.

Well, screw 'im. Obviously, his heart is more into snookering us with his "Global Warming" fooferah than putting up a decent fight. It's just too bad that he couldn't have decided this back before the election, so that we could've had a candidate worth voting and fighting for...I know pieces of plywood with more personality than this tool.

In 2004, we had "Uncle Ken" Blackwell to thank for his scumbaggery in rigging the election in Ohio.

Here's the thing - the exit polling seems to have followed the voting projections; so where's the vote fraud? we go.

Thanks, Mike.

Update (6/17/2009): Please peruse this posting at Pak Alert Press - they have an excellent analysis of the scumbaggery ensuing in Iran.

Why I Miss George W. Bush - Christopher Ketcham

Christopher Ketcham posted this piece at Atlantic Free Press - Why I miss George W. Bush - give it a read, why don't you...and here's a piece by Travis Kelly - 9/11 Metastasizing: the Left’s Co-Dependency.

I want to mention the fantastic news I heard today regarding the fate of scumbag child rapist Joseph McGowan - he will not be eligible for parole for at least 18 years, and possibly 30.

There shouldn't be a chance in hell that this piece of sub-human garbage could ever again menace a child. I'm sure that to Rosemarie D’Alessandro, this comes as a relief, but of course, it pales to the realization that something like this simply should not occur in today's world. Amazingly, after 36 years, Rosemarie D’Alessandro can relax, and never have to hear that name being mentioned in the media ever again, with the possible exception of a notice of his demise.

Regarding the attack upon the Holocaust museum...all I can say is PSY-OP.

Global sentiment, as it was right before the events of September 11th, 2001, is against Israel; no mean feat, considering their reprehensible actions taken in Gaza, Lebanon and the United States. Newly-elected U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama, before he was elected, gave an awfully fawn-laded speech before AIPAC, swearing his fealty. Now that he has addressed the other denizens of the Middle East, and voiced that his administration will attempt to deal with them in better faith, he has now betrayed Israel?

This is utter insanity.

Do you know that Israel plans to enact sanctions against the United States?

I guess all of that stolen land has gone to their heads.

Israel did 9/11 - Zion Crime Factory

Well, someone seems to have connected the dots...according to this webpage, Israel did 9/11.

Let me follow with 41 points posted by a fellow by the name of Carl Olsen:

Here's 40 facts to get you started. I already linked to this, but once again, it's at:


1) AWOL Chain of Command
a. It is well documented that the officials topping the chain of command for response to a domestic attack - George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Myers, Montague Winfield - all found reason to do something else during the actual attacks, other than assuming their duties as decision-makers.
b. Who was actually in charge? Dick Cheney, Richard Clarke, Norman Mineta and the 9/11 Commission directly conflict in their accounts of top-level response to the unfolding events, such that several (or all) of them must be lying.

2) Air Defense Failures
a. The US air defense system failed to follow standard procedures for responding to diverted passenger flights.
b. Timelines: The various responsible agencies - NORAD, FAA, Pentagon, USAF, as well as the 9/11 Commission - gave radically different explanations for the failure (in some cases upheld for years), such that several officials must have lied; but none were held accountable.
c. Was there an air defense standdown?

3) Pentagon Strike
How was it possible the Pentagon was hit 1 hour and 20 minutes after the attacks began? Why was there no response from Andrews Air Force Base, just 10 miles away and home to Air National Guard units charged with defending the skies above the nation''s capital? How did Hani Hanjour, a man who failed as a Cessna pilot on his first flight in a Boeing, execute a difficult aerobatic maneuver to strike the Pentagon? Why did the attack strike the just-renovated side, which was largely empty and opposite from the high command?

4) Wargames
a. US military and other authorities planned or actually rehearsed defensive response to all elements of the 9/11 scenario during the year prior to the attack - including multiple hijackings, suicide crashbombings, and a strike on the Pentagon.
b. The multiple military wargames planned long in advance and held on the morning of September 11th included scenarios of a domestic air crisis, a plane crashing into a government building, and a large-scale emergency in New York. If this was only an incredible series of coincidences, why did the official investigations avoid the issue? There is evidence that the wargames created confusion as to whether the unfolding events were "real world or exercise." Did wargames serve as the cover for air defense sabotage, and/or the execution of an "inside job"?

5) Flight 93
Did the Shanksville crash occur at 10:06 (according to a seismic report) or 10:03 (according to the 9/11 Commission)? Does the Commission wish to hide what happened in the last three minutes of the flight, and if so, why? Was Flight 93 shot down, as indicated by the scattering of debris over a trail of several miles?


6) Did cell phones work at 30,000 feet in 2001? How many hijackings were attempted? How many flights were diverted?

7) Demolition Hypothesis
What caused the collapse of a third skyscraper, WTC 7, which was not hit by a plane? Were the Twin Towers and WTC 7 brought down by explosives? (See "The Case for Demolitions," the websites and, and the influential article by physicist Steven Jones. See also items no. 16 and 24, below.)


8) What did officials know? How did they know it?
a. Multiple allied foreign agencies informed the US government of a coming attack in detail, including the manner and likely targets of the attack, the name of the operation (the "Big Wedding"), and the names of certain men later identified as being among the perpetrators.
b. Various individuals came into possession of specific advance knowledge, and some of them tried to warn the US prior to September 11th.
c. Certain prominent persons received warnings not to fly on the week or on the day of September 11th.

9) Able Danger, Plus - Surveillance of Alleged Hijackers
a. The men identified as the 9/11 ringleaders were under surveillance for years beforehand, on the suspicion they were terrorists, by a variety of US and allied authorities - including the CIA, the US military''s "Able Danger" program, the German authorities, Israeli intelligence and others.
b. Two of the alleged ringleaders who were known to be under surveillance by the CIA also lived with an FBI asset in San Diego, but this is supposed to be yet another coincidence.

10) Obstruction of FBI Investigations prior to 9/11
A group of FBI officials in New York systematically suppressed field investigations of potential terrorists that might have uncovered the alleged hijackers - as the Moussaoui case once again showed. The stories of Sibel Edmonds, Robert Wright, Coleen Rowley and Harry Samit, the "Phoenix Memo," David Schippers, the 199i orders restricting investigations, the Bush administration''s order to back off the Bin Ladin family, the reaction to the "Bojinka" plot, and John O''Neil do not, when considered in sum, indicate mere incompetence, but high-level corruption and protection of criminal networks, including the network of the alleged 9/11 conspirators. (Nearly all of these examples were omitted from or relegated to fleeting footnotes in The 9/11 Commission Report.)

11) Insider Trading
a. Unknown speculators allegedly used foreknowledge of the Sept. 11th events to profiteer on many markets internationally - including but not limited to "put options" placed to short-sell the two airlines, WTC tenants, and WTC re-insurance companies in Chicago and London.
b. In addition, suspicious monetary transactions worth hundreds of millions were conducted through offices at the Twin Towers during the actual attacks.
c. Initial reports on these trades were suppressed and forgotten, and only years later did the 9/11 Commission and SEC provide a partial, but untenable explanation for only a small number of transactions (covering only the airline put options through the Chicago Board of Exchange).

12) Who were the perpetrators?
a. Much of the evidence establishing who did the crime is dubious and miraculous: bags full of incriminating material that happened to miss the flight or were left in a van; the "magic passport" of an alleged hijacker, found at Ground Zero; documents found at motels where the alleged perpetrators had stayed days and weeks before 9/11.
b. The identities of the alleged hijackers remain unresolved, there are contradictions in official accounts of their actions and travels, and there is evidence several of them had "doubles," all of which is omitted from official investigations.
c. What happened to initial claims by the government that 50 people involved in the attacks had been identified, including the 19 alleged hijackers, with 10 still at large (suggesting that 20 had been apprehended)?

THE 9/11 COVER-UP, 2001-2006

13) Who Is Osama Bin Ladin?
a. Who judges which of the many conflicting and dubious statements and videos attributed to Osama Bin Ladin are genuine, and which are fake? The most important Osama Bin Ladin video (Nov. 2001), in which he supposedly confesses to masterminding 9/11, appears to be a fake. In any event, the State Department''s translation of it is fraudulent.
b. Did Osama Bin Ladin visit Dubai and meet a CIA agent in July 2001 (Le Figaro)? Was he receiving dialysis in a Pakistani military hospital on the night of September 10, 2001 (CBS)?
c. Whether by Bush or Clinton: Why is Osama always allowed to escape?
d. The terror network associated with Osama, known as the "data base" (al-Qaeda), originated in the CIA-sponsored 1980s anti-Soviet jihad in Afghanistan. When did this network stop serving as an asset to covert operations by US intelligence and allied agencies? What were its operatives doing in Kosovo, Bosnia and Chechnya in the years prior to 9/11?

14) All the Signs of a Systematic 9/11 Cover-up
a. Airplane black boxes were found at Ground Zero, according to two first responders and an unnamed NTSB official, but they were "disappeared" and their existence is denied in The 9/11 Commission Report.
b. US officials consistently suppressed and destroyed evidence (like the tapes recorded by air traffic controllers who handled the New York flights).
c. Whistleblowers (like Sibel Edmonds and Anthony Shaffer) were intimidated, gagged and sanctioned, sending a clear signal to others who might be thinking about speaking out.
d. Officials who "failed" (like Myers and Eberhard, as well as Frasca, Maltbie and Bowman of the FBI) were given promotions.

15) Poisoning New York
The White House deliberately pressured the EPA into giving false public assurances that the toxic air at Ground Zero was safe to breathe. This knowingly contributed to an as-yet unknown number of health cases and fatalities, and demonstrates that the administration does consider the lives of American citizens to be expendable on behalf of certain interests.

16) Disposing of the Crime Scene
The rapid and illegal scrapping of the WTC ruins at Ground Zero disposed of almost all of the structural steel indispensable to any investigation of the collapse mechanics. (See also item no. 23, below.)

17) Anthrax
Mailings of weapons-grade anthrax - which caused a practical suspension of the 9/11 investigations - were traced back to US military stock. Soon after the attacks began in October 2001, the FBI approved the destruction of the original samples of the Ames strain, disposing of perhaps the most important evidence in identifying the source of the pathogens used in the mailings. Were the anthrax attacks timed to coincide with the Afghanistan invasion? Why were the letters sent only to media figures and to the leaders of the opposition in the Senate (who had just raised objections to the USA PATRIOT Act)?

18) The Stonewall
a. Colin Powell promised a "white paper" from the State Department to establish the authorship of the attacks by al-Qaeda. This was never forthcoming, and was instead replaced by a paper from Tony Blair, which presented only circumstantial evidence, with very few points actually relating to September 11th.
b. Bush and Cheney pressured the (freshly-anthraxed) leadership of the Congressional opposition into delaying the 9/11 investigation for months. The administration fought against the creation of an independent investigation for more than a year.
c. The White House thereupon attempted to appoint Henry Kissinger as the chief investigator, and acted to underfund and obstruct the 9/11 Commission.

19) A Record of Official Lies
a. "No one could have imagined planes into buildings" - a transparent falsehood upheld repeatedly by Rice, Rumsfeld and Bush.
b. "Iraq was connected to 9/11" - The most "outrageous conspiracy theory" of all, with the most disastrous impact.

20) Pakistani Connection - Congressional Connection
a. The Pakistani intelligence agency ISI, creator of the Taliban and close ally to both the CIA and "al-Qaeda," allegedly wired $100,000 to Mohamed Atta just prior to September 11th, reportedly through the ISI asset Omar Saeed Sheikh (later arrested for the killing of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was investigating ISI connections to "al-Qaeda.")
b. This was ignored by the congressional 9/11 investigation, although the senator and congressman who ran the probe (Bob Graham and Porter Goss) were meeting with the ISI chief, Mahmud Ahmed, on Capitol Hill on the morning of September 11th.
c. About 25 percent of the report of the Congressional Joint Inquiry was redacted, including long passages regarding how the attack (or the network allegedly behind it) was financed. Graham later said foreign allies were involved in financing the alleged terror network, but that this would only come out in 30 years.

21) Unanswered Questions and the "Final Fraud" of the 9/11 Commission:
a. The September 11th families who fought for and gained an independent investigation (the 9/11 Commission) posed 400-plus questions, which the 9/11 Commission adopted as its roadmap. The vast majority of these questions were completely ignored in the Commission hearings and the final report.
b. The membership and staff of the 9/11 Commission displayed awesome conflicts of interest. The families called for the resignation of Executive Director Philip Zelikow, a Bush administration member and close associate of "star witness" Condoleezza Rice, and were snubbed. Commission member Max Cleland resigned, condemning the entire exercise as a "scam" and "whitewash."
c.The 9/11 Commission Report is notable mainly for its obvious omissions, distortions and outright falsehoods - ignoring anything incompatible with the official story, banishing the issues to footnotes, and even dismissing the still-unresolved question of who financed 9/11 as being "of little practical significance."

22) Crown Witnesses Held at Undisclosed Locations
The alleged masterminds of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Mohamed (KSM) and Ramzi Binalshibh, are reported to have been captured in 2002 and 2003, although one Pakistani newspaper said KSM was killed in an attempted capture. They have been held at undisclosed locations and their supposed testimonies, as provided in transcript form by the government, form much of the basis for The 9/11 Commission Report (although the Commission''s request to see them in person was denied). After holding them for years, why doesn''t the government produce these men and put them to trial?

23) Spitzer Redux
a. Eliot Spitzer, attorney general of New York State, snubbed pleas by New York citizens to open 9/11 as a criminal case (
b. Spitzer also refused to allow his employee, former 9/11 Commission staff member Dietrich Snell, to testify to the Congress about his (Snell''s) role in keeping "Able Danger" entirely out of The 9/11 Commission Report.

24) NIST Omissions
After the destruction of the WTC structural steel, the official Twin Towers collapse investigation was left with almost no forensic evidence, and thus could only provide dubious computer models of ultimately unprovable hypotheses. It failed to even test for the possibility of explosives. (Why not clear this up?)

25) Radio Silence
The 9/11 Commission and NIST both allowed the continuing cover-up of how Motorola''s faulty radios, purchased by the Giuliani administration, caused firefighter deaths at the WTC - once again showing the expendability, even of the first responders.

26) The Legal Catch-22
a. Hush Money - Accepting victims'' compensation barred September 11th families from pursuing discovery through litigation.
b. Judge Hallerstein - Those who refused compensation to pursue litigation and discovery had their cases consolidated under the same judge (and as a rule dismissed).

27) Saudi Connections
a. The 9/11 investigations made light of the "Bin Ladin Airlift" during the no-fly period, and ignored the long-standing Bush family business ties to the Bin Ladin family fortune. (A company in which both families held interests, the Carlyle Group, was holding its annual meeting on September 11th, with George Bush Sr., James Baker, and two brothers of Osama Bin Ladin in attendance.)
b. The issue of Ptech.

28) Media Blackout of Prominent Doubters
The official story has been questioned and many of the above points were raised by members of the US Congress, retired high-ranking officers of the US military, the three leading third-party candidates for President in the 2004 election, a member of the 9/11 Commission who resigned in protest, a former high-ranking adviser to the George W. Bush administration, former ministers to the German, British and Canadian governments, the commander-in-chief of the Russian air force, 100 luminaries who signed the "9/11 Truth Statement," and the presidents of Iran and Venezuela. Not all of these people agree fully with each other, but all would normally be considered newsworthy. Why has the corporate-owned US mass media remained silent about these statements, granting due coverage only to the comments of actor Charlie Sheen?


29) "The Great Game"
The Afghanistan invasion was ready for Bush''s go-ahead on September 9, 2001, with US and UK force deployments to the region already in place or underway. This followed the failure earlier that year of backdoor diplomacy with the Taliban (including payments of $125 million in US government aid to Afghanistan), in an attempt to secure a unity government for that country as a prerequisite to a Central Asian pipeline deal.

30) The Need for a "New Pearl Harbor"
Principals in US foreign policy under the current Bush administration (including Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Perle and others) have been instrumental in developing long-running plans for worldwide military hegemony, including an invasion of the Middle East, dating back to the Ford, Reagan and Bush Sr. administrations. They reiterated these plans in the late 1990s as members of the "Project for a New American Century," and stated a clear intent to invade Iraq for the purpose of "regime change." After 9/11, they lost no time in their attempt to tie Iraq to the attacks.

31) Perpetual "War on Terror"
9/11 is supposed to provide carte-blanche for an open-ended, global and perpetual "War on Terror," against any enemy, foreign or domestic, that the executive branch chooses to designate, and regardless of whether evidence exists to actually connect these enemies to 9/11.

32) Attacking the Constitution
a. The USA PATRIOT Act was written before 9/11, Homeland Security and the "Shadow Government" were developed long before 9/11, and plans for rounding up dissidents as a means for suppressing civil disturbance have been in the works for decades.
b. 9/11 was used as the pretext to create a new, extra-constitutional executive authority to declare anyone an "enemy combatant" (including American citizens), to detain persons indefinitely without habeas corpus, and to "render" such persons to secret prisons where torture is practiced.

33) Legal Trillions
9/11 triggers a predictable shift of public spending to war, and boosts public and private spending in the "new" New Economy of "Homeland Security," biometrics, universal surveillance, prisons, civil defense, secured enclaves, security, etc.

34) Plundered Trillions?
On September 10, 2001, Donald Rumsfeld announced a "war on waste" after an internal audit found that the Pentagon was "missing" 2.3 trillion dollars in unaccounted assets. On September 11th, this was as good as forgotten.

35) Did 9/11 prevent a stock market crash?
Did anyone benefit from the destruction of the Securities and Exchange Commission offices at WTC 7, and the resultant crippling of hundreds of fraud investigations?

36) Resource Wars
a. What was discussed in the Energy Task Force meetings under Dick Cheney in 2001? Why is the documentation of these meetings still being suppressed?
b. Is Peak Oil a motive for 9/11 as inside job?

37) The "Little Game"
Why was the WTC privatized just before its destruction?


38) "Al-CIA-da?"
The longstanding relationship between US intelligence networks and radical Islamists, including the network surrounding Osama Bin Ladin. (See also point 13d.)

39) Historical Precedents for "Synthetic Terror"
a. In the past many states, including the US government, have sponsored attacks on their own people, fabricated the "cause for war," created (and armed) their own enemies of convenience, and sacrificed their own citizens for "reasons of state."
b. Was 9/11 an update of the Pentagon-approved "Project Northwoods" plan for conducting self-inflicted, false-flag terror attacks in the United States, and blaming them on a foreign enemy?

40) Secret Government
a. The record of criminality and sponsorship of coups around the world by the covert networks based within the US intelligence complex.
b. Specifically also: The evidence of crime by Bush administration principals and their associates, from October Surprise to Iran-Contra and the S&L plunder to PNAC, Enron/Halliburton and beyond.

Today Was Almost The Anniversary Of Egypt's Being Turned Into A Green-Glass Parking Lot

Yes, dear readers...42 years ago, the shitty little state of Israel attempted to sink the intelligence ship U.S.S. Liberty (adorned with GTR5 on its hull) under the pretense that it was an Egyptian horse carrier (?), the El Quesir. This act, had it succeeded, would have drawn the United States into a war with Egypt, since the Israelis had utilized unmarked fighters and gunships to effect the attack. What made things infinitely worse was that President Lyndon B. Johnson and Defense Secretary Robert McNamara recalled not once, but twice, fighters called upon to defend our ship. Because of this inaction, thirty-four of our boys were murdered, and over one hundred seventy of the crew injured.

A note from Mark Glenn:


Today is the 42nd anniversary of Israel's deliberate, pre-meditated attack on the USS Liberty resulting in the murder of 34 Americans. A week's worth of radio programs are scheduled to begin this afternoon with Mike Rivero of The show can be found on and today's program features USS LIberty survivor Ron Kukal. Tonight, Michael Collins Piper will begin the 1st of a 5-night series dealing with the subject. Several important personages, including Liberty personnel, will be appearing. The show is found at and airs at 9 pm eastern time. Please pass this info around and try to call in with your comments if possible.

Finally, we are beginning to gain ground against the beast of the east, meaning Israel. The world is waking up to the fact that we have a dangerous predator in our midst and those who yesterday thought we were crackpots today are willing to sit down, shut up and listen. Therefore let's keep the heat on and not lighten up.

Here are a few articles worth passing around I did for AFP a few years ago dealing with the Liberty issue.

thank you

Daniel James Murray = Lee Harvey Oswald?

So...these ungrateful scumbags are insulting him, yet we're supposed to worry about this guy:

Man charged with threat against Obama in Utah

SALT LAKE CITY – Federal prosecutors have charged a man with making threats against President Barack Obama after he allegedly told a bank employee in Utah he was on a mission to kill the president.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported on its Web site Thursday that Daniel James Murray allegedly made the remark to a teller at a bank in St. George on May 27 as he withdrew $13,000 from an account.

Murray's whereabouts are unknown. A court affidavit says Murray is from New York and has recently been in California, Utah, Georgia, Oklahoma and possibly Texas.

The U.S. Secret Service says Murray has at least eight registered firearms, the Tribune reported.

Malcolm Wiley, a spokesman for the Secret Service in Washington, told The Associated Press he had no comment Thursday.

I was listening to 1010WINS all bloody night and all morning before work today...and EVERY TEN MINUTES, the announcement of this "threat" to President Obama was played, with new details each time...though no mention of a motive.

I think that his insistence upon a "Palestinian State" is the initiating statement that will result in an attack on his person, much like JFK and his attempts to save the dollar by removing the powers bestowed to the Federal Reserve by the quislings who should have been hung back in 1913.

I do hope that I am wrong, because all of the non-thinking individuals will act as they have been programmed to do, and the scumbags will have the initiating event for martial law.

Let us see what occurs.

Ahmadinejad says Holocaust a 'big deception' - Yahoo

Does Yahoo wish to go the way of the newspapers, telling lies and expect We The People to continue perusing them? I think not.

How's this - I won't even resort to telling you, dear readers, once more, that The president of Iran did not mention anything about "wiping Israel off the map". Just do a search on any search engine with the quoted words. this tripe:

Ahmadinejad says Holocaust a 'big deception'

TEHRAN (AFP) - Iran's hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is seeking a second term in office, reiterated on Wednesday his anti-Israel stance by calling the Holocaust a "big deception".

Ahmadinejad also said liberal democracies of the world have degraded "human values," the Iranian state television news website quoted him as saying.

"The identity of the liberal democracy has been exposed to the world by its protection of the most criminal regime in the history of humanity, the Zionist regime, by using the big deception of the Holocaust."

"There is no doubt that the only way to replace the liberal thought is to go back to the teachings of the divine prophets," Ahmadinejad said.

"The thoughts and the system of liberal regimes have lowered the benchmarks for human perfection ... The liberal regimes cannot solve the simplest of the political issues in the world," he said.

Ahmadinejad was speaking to a gathering of 600 international scholars who have arrived in Tehran to mark the 20th anniversary of the death of the founder of the Islamic republic, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, which falls on Thursday.

He hopes to win another four-year term in the June 12 election.

Ahmadinejad's presidency has been marred by anti-Israel tirades.

Soon after he took office in 2005, he said Israel was "doomed to be wiped off the map," a statement that enraged global powers that was followed by another diatribe saying the Holocaust was a "myth."

Does The Government Have The Power To Disobey The Consitution?

The answer is a clear NO.


Remember the "Riverdale Synagogue Bomb Plot" barely a week ago? I stated then that the whole thing smelled of a Psy-Op, yes?

On May 23rd, the New York Post presented this article: 'JIHAD' GIRLFRIENDS: FBI SNITCH USED GIFTS TO TRICK OUR MEN

A slick FBI informant roped four Muslim converts into a horrific terror plot to blow up synagogues and military jets by handing them piles of cash and gifts and even bags of weed, relatives of the suspects said today.

"Brother whatever you need, I will get it for you," said the man who the four petty thieves knew as Maqsood, according to Kathleen Baynes, whose long-time boyfriend, James Cromitie is alleged to be the ringleader of the plot.

She said Cromitie, 45, met Maqsood at the Masjid al-Ikhlas mosque about a year ago and promised to teach him the truth about Islam.

Um...what the FUCK?!?

You mean, we don't have enough actual maniacs in this world of ours angry enough to do stuff like this for real, that you idiots have to INVENT "JIHADISTS"?!?

Read the article at the link provided above...what you will read about are not four hard-nosed "Muslims" bent on destroying some synagogue in Riverdale; rather, you will read about four dupes cajoled into playing into a stupid plot designed to give Richard "Skeletor" Cheney some legitimacy in his insane attempts to make waterboarding a tenable and reasoned means of extracting information from individuals.

It isn't.

If one is waterboarded, you can be sure that they will tell you that they killed all six million Jews in the Holocaust; that they sunk the Titanic; that they were responsible for the near sinking of the U.S.S. Liberty and the murder of 34 of its crewmen; that they shot Reagan, JFK, King and RFK; that they caused World Wars One and Two; need I say more?
