Drones may be sent soon to help with border security, Napolitano says

Vatic Note:  Remember, this is how it started in Pakistan didn't it?  Also remember, the Afghani's hacked into the drones and made them crash, keep that in mind.   Now, why would a President order drones over a border That he has refused to guard by reducing Border Guards in this budge cycle,  cut the fencing project, and has said will do amnesty the same way he just did health care?  So, obviously,  Its not to keep illegals out, so why?  Speculation?  1.  To protect the crossers from us,  2. to set up surveillance of Americans,  3.  To bomb anyone who rebels, 3.  to speed up the drug running? 4. Last but not least the superhighway is on its way.... I bet that is it.  Do any of these make sense?  Well, whatever the reason, its not for the one stated.  That part is a fact.  Common sense rules here.  Further,  Ze Homeland Security is the biggest waste of money bar none and the most useless.  They didn't even arrest Paulson when he threatened martial law on congress if they did not pass the bailout bill back in 2008.  THAT, is and was CLASSIC Economic Terrorism, Remember?

AUSTIN – The federal government may soon send unmanned aircraft to scour West Texas and the state's coastal waters in an effort to boost border security, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said in a letter to the governor sent Friday.


Perry had formally requested the assistance a week ago. The need also was underscored in a phone call that Democratic nominee Bill White had with Napolitano on Thursday.

Homeland Security has six drones and is working with the Federal Aviation Administration to get the necessary clearance to begin flying over Texas, Napolitano wrote.

Before operations start, ground control stations, pilots, sensor operators and maintenance support have to be allocated. She said that the governor would be kept apprised of the progress.

"This is encouraging news, and we are hopeful that this technology and additional federal resources will be deployed to Texas as soon as possible," said Perry spokeswoman Katherine Cesinger.

Perry has complained that the federal government has not done enough to secure the border, especially in light of escalating drug violence in Mexico border towns.

Revealed: health fears over secret study into GM food Rats fed GM corn due for sale in Britain developed abnormalities in blood and kidneys

Vatic Note:  This is part of our daily articles on some form of food, water, chemical poisoning,  or air issues that affect us all globally and threaten our very life sustaining requirements through any of the above.   Right now we are on the issue of GMO products and their impact on our food and thus our bodies and health.   To get perspective, this issue today is one of an historical perspective.  This article dates to 2005 and that shows just how little either government, monsanto or anyone in any country has responded to  changing the way Monsanto does business.   Read this and keep it for tacking since we are building a record for Nuremberg trials in the future for crimes against humanity and this sure fits the bill.

Rats fed on a diet rich in genetically modified corn developed abnormalities to internal organs and changes to their blood, raising fears that human health could be affected by eating GM food.


The Independent on Sunday can today reveal details of secret research carried out by Monsanto, the GM food giant, which shows that rats fed the modified corn had smaller kidneys and variations in the composition of their blood.

According to the confidential 1,139-page report, these health problems were absent from another batch of rodents fed non-GM food as part of the research project.

The disclosures come as European countries, including Britain, prepare to vote on whether the GM-modified corn should go on sale to the public. A vote last week by the European Union failed to secure agreement over whether the product should be sold here, after Britain and nine other countries voted in favour.

Gearing up for the "TOTAL" destruction of Iran?

Vatic Note:   I will never understand why our new status in this world will not be said outloud.  We ARE A COLONY OF ISRAEL.   This isn't the "American Naifs", its the dual israeli citizen naifs bringing ruin to other lands, through the use of their "occupied colony" (USA) and all her resources both wealth and human.   This is not about America, who is rapidly sliding down the rabbit hole of destruction,  this is about  the Israeli Empire's extraction of  wealth and population from the United States, intended to be  used to empire build for Israel and its international banker owners, the Rothschild cabal.  Please, lets start changing the language to reflect reality.   Treason is the lexicon,  Colony is the status, and third world is the direction of this United States of America and the fate of all her people.  What happens here will happen to Europe eventually and the globe ultimately.   UNLESS WE STOP IT. As Americans, we are the  only ones who can at this point, its up to us now.  We allowed it,  we must stop it.

According to news reports, the U.S. military is shipping “bunker-buster” bombs to the U.S. Air Force base at Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean. The Herald Scotland reports that experts say the bombs are being assembled for an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities. The newspaper quotes Dan Piesch, director of the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy at the University of London: “They are gearing up totally for the destruction of Iran.” http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/world-news/final-destination-iran-1.1013151


The next step will be a staged “terrorist attack,” a “false flag” operation as per Operation Northwoods, for which Iran will be blamed. As Iran and its leadership have already been demonized, the “false flag” attack will suffice to obtain US and European public support for bombing Iran. The bombing will include more than the nuclear facilities and will continue until the Iranians agree to regime change and the installation of a puppet government. The corrupt American media will present the new puppet as “freedom and democracy.”

If the past is a guide, Americans will fall for the deception. In the February issue of the American Behavioral Scientist, a scholarly journal, Professor Lance DeHaven-Smith writes that state crimes against democracy (SCAD) involve government officials, often in combination with private interests, that engage in covert activities in order to implement an agenda. Examples include McCarthyism or the fabrication of evidence of communist infiltration, the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution based on false claims of President Johnson and Pentagon chief McNamara that North Vietnam attacked a U.S. naval vessel, the burglary of the office of Daniel Ellsberg’s psychiatrist in order to discredit Ellsberg (the Pentagon Papers) as “disturbed,” and the falsified “intelligence” that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction in order to justify the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

Synagogue Bomb Suspects: The Feds Put Us Up to It!

Vatic Note:   We watched the CIA, British intel and mossad do this very thing in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan and then blame it on local muslims or others in order to facilitate civil war and have the population kill each other off instead of us having to do it.   Now they are doing it here and it was arrogant of us to think that they wouldn't do it to us Americans.   Foolish, they want here what they want there, CIVIL WAR, DO NOT GIVE IT TO THEM.  United we stand, divided we fall.   All Jewish people, muslims and others together, we stand.   Never to be divided.  Right and left, together. Globally, TOGETHER.

Defense attorneys say an alleged plot to bomb New York synagogues was hatched and directed by a federal informant.


Lawyers for four men from Newburgh have filed a motion to dismiss the terror indictment against them.
They said the informant badgered the defendants until they got involved in the plot.

They said the informant chose the targets, supplied fake bombs for the synagogues and a fake missile to shoot down planes. The motion said he also offered to pay the defendants, who attorneys alleged weren't inclined toward any crime until the informant began recruiting them

"The government well knew that their case had been a government-inspired creation from day one and that the defendants had not been independently seeking weapons or targets," the motion said.

US Department of Justice Asked to Regulate AIPAC as a Foreign Agent of the Israeli Government

Vatic Note:   Really?   Its all in the action.  We will see.  That is a result of a complete lack of trust in any part of this gov from the political parties to the power of foreign interests/Wall Street Bankers to control our government.  I honestly know no one in my circle who trusts any part of the gov and now includes the courts.  Bad situation for trying to get us to go to war for them.   Won't happen.  Only against them, not for them.

WASHINGTON, March 17, 2010 "IRMEP" - PRNewswire via COMTEX/ ----The US Department of Justice has been formally asked to begin regulating the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) as the foreign agent of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs. A 392 page legal filing presented by a four person IRmep delegation in a two hour meeting with top officials of the Internal Security Section substantiated the following case for AIPAC's immediate registration:

AIPAC is a spinoff of an organization already ordered by the DOJ to register as an Israeli foreign agent. In November of 1962 the American Zionist Council was ordered by the Attorney General to begin filing disclosures as an Israeli foreign agent under the 1938 Foreign Agents Registration Act. http://www.IRmep.org/1962Order.pdf Six weeks later, former AZC employees incorporated the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in Washington, DC, taking over the AZC's lobbying activities. http://www.IRmep.org/AIPAC.pdf AIPAC did not register as a foreign agent.

Young Alaskan Urges Alternative Government


March 18, 2010

by Toby Moreland


-Schaeffer Cox, 26, a bright and charismatic gun rights activist, told the Freedom Festival in northern Idaho in December not to be afraid of the word "militia."

"We need to take that word back from the people who demonize it," said Cox.

He emphasizes he's not talking about an "isolated little clique of angry people. It's got to be a group of people brought together by respect and a power to act."

Cox is the organizer of both the "Second Amendment Task Force" (over 7,000 members) and "The Alaska Peacemakers Militia" of Fairbanks, Alaska.

In Montana, Cox said, "Instead of starting a third party, we started a second government," complete with a judicial branch (a common law court run on silver), a defense system (a well-trained militia of over 3,500), and an executive, Cox himself. (listen yourself to his ideas)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9zldMZujyw&feature=related



He says, "anything beyond these three is just a tool of tyranny. That's all you really need to protect the rights of free people."

In a tightly knit, rural community like Fairbanks, he's probably right. Cox has traveled to various parts of the country informing fellow patriots about his organizations and urging them to sign his declaration and establish similar "second governments" of their own. The U.S. Constitution and self-defense rights in particular are at the heart of this declaration.

Cox carefully adds a disclaimer to his pitch stating, "it cannot be created in order to attack or antagonize the existing government. Let them crap in their own nest and bring themselves down under their own power. We're not there to do that to them. But, as it comes out that they're a freaking joke, here's an alternative."

It is his belief that the U.S. federal government will soon fail, and that "we have a duty to protect some sort of order even if it is just amongst ourselves" against anarchy or the "tyranny of the mob." This proactive approach is admirable, but does he understand the big picture?

Who is Our Enemy?

Cox defines our enemy as "basically federal government and people who take their money...and the international super-states..." He continues, "we don't need to gun down the beast...the only entity that is strong enough to destroy this beast of tyranny is that beast of tyranny, and they are doing a plenty good job without our help...the system is beyond repair."

Cox operates under the assumption that the government is the enemy of the people, and indicates that he hopes it will collapse. Like so many Americans, he cannot fathom a scenario where a threat to U.S. soil could emerge in the form of a foreign military. Also, I wonder if he has considered that a staged "civil war" may be exactly what is being planned in order to dissolve the United States.

Cox says, "I don't understand all of the ins and outs of this giant monster coming our way and bulldozing over our freedom, but I feel in my gut a resentment, and I think you identify with this...that you shouldn't have to understand all that stuff, and that our rights are rights."

He says, "Let's be characterized by what we love and work towards that, and let what we hate run its own natural course."

Are We Being Cast As the Enemy?

For those of us who value the Constitution and the Bill of RIghts, emulating our forefathers by forming a militia may not seem so far fetched. However, to the urban masses and liberal media pundits, what feelings are conjured by groups like Schaeffer Cox's?

Is there a possibility of portraying militias as a threat to the American people? Certainly, and this is already happening. Is there a possibility that some militia or "second government" advocates are really covert agents promoting violence or separation? Absolutely.

Do militias, and 2nd Amendment defenders in general, put a violent face on legitimate concerns of preserving ALL of our Constitutional rights? Some would think so.

Would Americans believe a false-flag attack caused by U.S. citizens that believe their enemy to be "anyone who would take away from us the freedoms that God gave us" as Schaeffer Cox does? Probably.

Cox says, "I am not against spilling blood for freedom. I will kill for liberty. Everybody asks 'would you die for liberty?' That's not really the right question to ask. The right question to ask is 'would you kill for liberty?' because if you would kill for liberty it assumes that you would die for liberty."

And later, he says that he fears on his deathbed "handing my sword to my son - a sword that never saw blood - and saying, 'son, you go do what I was never able to even look at...and it's way worse now son.'"

Noble words but is this the right course of action?

The Off-Shored Economy : The Ruins of Detroit

Title:    The Ruins of Detroit  

The Off-Shored Economy
By PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS  - 03-17-2010

http://www.counterpunch.org/roberts03172010.html  %20Date

In the 20th century, Detroit, Michigan, symbolized American industrial might. Today it symbolizes the offshored economy.


Detroit’s population has declined by half. A quarter of the city--35 square miles--is desolate with only a few houses still standing on largely abandoned streets. If the local government can get the money from Washington, urban planners are going to shrink the city and establish rural areas or green zones where neighborhoods used to be.

President Obama and economists provide platitudes about recovery. But how does an economy recover when its economic leaders have spent more than a decade moving high productivity, high value-added middle class jobs offshore along with the Gross Domestic Product associated with them?

Some very discouraging reports have been issued this month from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. There have been record declines in both jobs and hours worked. At the end of last year, the U.S. economy had fewer jobs than at the end of 1997, 12 years ago. Hours worked at the end of last year were less than at the end of 1995, 14 years ago.

The average work week is falling and currently stands at 33.1 hours for non-supervisory workers.

A livestock drug banned in 160 nations and responsible for hyperactivity, muscle breakdown and 10 percent mortality in pigs has been approved by the FDA.


The beta agonist ractopamine, a repartitioning agent that increases protein synthesis, was recruited for livestock use when researchers found the drug, used in asthma, made mice more muscular.

Ractopamine is started as the animal nears slaughter.

How does a drug marked, "Not for use in humans. Individuals with cardiovascular disease should exercise special caution to avoid exposure. Use protective clothing, impervious gloves, protective eye wear, and a NIOSH-approved dust mask" become "safe" in human food? With no washout period?

The drug is banned in Europe, Taiwan and China, and more than 1,700 people have been "poisoned" from eating pigs fed the drug since 1998, but ractopamine is used in 45 percent of U.S. pigs and 30 percent of ration-fed cattle.

(NaturalNews) You've heard it before, how the pharmaceutical industry has a giant "revolving door" through which corporations and government agencies frequently exchange key employees. That reality was driven home in a huge way today when news broke that Dr. Julie Gerberding, who headed the CDC from 2002 through 2009, landed a top job with Merck, one of the largest drug companies in the world. Her job there? She's the new president of the vaccine division.

How convenient. That means the former head of the CDC was very likely cultivating a relationship with Merck all these years, and now comes the big payoff: Heading up a $5 billion division that sells cervical cancer vaccines (like Gardasil), chickenpox vaccines and of course H1N1 swine flu vaccines, too.

Tea partiers in New Jersey have moved one step closer to ousting a sitting U.S. senator that they say has shown "a total disregard for the people's wishes."


New Jersey Tea Parties United and the Sussex County Tea Party have joined forces to try an unprecedented way of sending a message to Washington: removing a senator through a recall vote.

A three-judge appellate panel ruled today that the New Jersey secretary of state must accept the tea partiers' notice of intent to recall Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., and allow their joint recall committee to begin collecting the voter signatures needed to put the senator's name back on the ballot, two years before his term is supposed to end.

New Jersey is one of a handful of states that allows for the recall of its congressmen, thanks to a constitutional amendment New Jersey voters approved by a 3-to-1 margin in 1993.

Senator Christopher Dodd's financial reform bill to give huge powers to Federal Reserve

Vatic Note:   Many of you have been with me for years and have memories of some of the experiences I have shared.  Remember the first bail out when I called Dodds office and faxed over to his staff proof of fraud through lehman bros, the fed res, and US treasury paulson?   The staffer took the info and passed it around, I called back and asked what they thought of the proof and it ws the first time he was not very open while before he was enthusaistic about getting such proof.   I asked what the agenda on the bail "really" was, and he would not answer (at least he didn't lie) and finally, knowing he would not answer, I asked point blank "IS THIS ABOUT GLOBALIZING?)  and he said "YES"  and ended the conversation. 
This bill must be fought with every ounce of our energy, since this will place our entire financial system economically,  digitially, chipping in lieu of currency, etc, in the hands FULLY AND PERMANENTLY OF THE ROTHSCHILD BANKING CONSORTIUM and remember they are the real crown of britian, so we are then back under Empire once again.  THIS MUST BE FOUGHT.   Dodd is leaving as the traitor he is.

The Federal Reserve would gain new powers over non-bank financial firms and keep much of its authority over banks under a new bill to be unveiled on Monday by the Senate's architect of financial reform.


In a turnaround for the central bank after months of public criticism, Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd was poised to release a bill that leans heavily on the Fed to fix the U.S. financial system, sources said on Sunday.

Not only would a new government watchdog for financial consumers be housed within the Fed, it would also retain much of its present authority over large bank holding companies and gain new authority over selected non-bank financial firms.

Sources said the Fed would also continue supervising smaller, state-chartered banks now in the Fed system -- a change from an earlier proposal that would have transferred those banks to Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. supervision.

The plans could yet change, sources said, with weeks to go before Congress completes its long debate on regulatory reform after the worst U.S. financial crisis in generations tipped the economy into recession and shook markets worldwide.

With Republicans and bank lobbyists working to weaken and block new rules, the push for reform could fail in the Senate. That would hurt Democrats and President Barack Obama as they head into November elections already short on achievements.

But the release on Monday of Dodd's bill will move the Senate closer to a decisive vote.

March 17, 2010 "Raw Story" -- Senior Bush administration officials sternly cautioned the 9/11 Commission against probing too deeply into the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, according to a document recently obtained by the ACLU.


The notification came in a letter dated January 6, 2004, addressed by Attorney General John Ashcroft, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and CIA Director George J. Tenet. The ACLU described it as a fax sent by David Addington, then-counsel to former vice president Dick Cheney.

In the message, the officials denied the bipartisan commission's request to question terrorist detainees, informing its two senior-most members that doing so would "cross" a "line" and obstruct the administration's ability to protect the nation.

"In response to the Commission's expansive requests for access to secrets, the executive branch has provided such access in full cooperation," the letter read. "There is, however, a line that the Commission should not cross -- the line separating the Commission's proper inquiry into the September 11, 2001 attacks from interference with the Government's ability to safeguard the national security, including protection of Americans from future terrorist attacks."

After filing an official complaint over inadequate mental health services at Ft. Stewart, Georgia, Army SPC Marc Hall was jailed on December 12, 2009 on the pretext of an angry song about “Stop-loss” he produced in July 2009. The Army has recently shipped SPC Hall to Kuwait where he remains jailed awaiting a virtually secret trial.


Marc needs our help if he is going to have adequate legal representation and mental health support in Kuwait.

Letter from Army SPC Marc Hall, February 20, 1010:

I never thought that I would join the Army only to one day be incarcerated by the Army. I have never been to jail in my life, until now. The Army is charging me with Article 134 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, “communicating threats” towards my chain of command. Yet I was only communicating how I felt about what I have experienced in the Army and how I felt about the Army’s “Stop-loss” policy. That policy meant that I could not leave the Army when I was supposed to, and after I had already served in Iraq for 14 months.

I guess this all started with a hardcore “rap” song I made about the Army’s very unpopular “Stop-loss” policy back in July 2009. Like any “rap” or rock song, I was expressing my freedom of expression under the US Constitution. Being that the Army’s “Stop-loss” policy was a Pentagon decision from what I had heard on the news, I decided to send a copy of my song directly to the Pentagon.

Last week, Vice President Joe Biden was publicly slapped in the face by the Netanyahu government during his trip to Jerusalem. The Israeli government used the occasion to announce the settlement of 1,600 Israelis in Arab East Jerusalem, in defiance of America’s calls for a freeze on settlements. According to a report in Yedioth Ahronoth, Biden responded: “This is starting to get dangerous for us. What you’re doing here undermines the security of our troops who are fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. That endangers us and it endangers regional peace.”


Now in a fascinating briefing note at Foreign Policy, Mark Perry gives us a clearer sense of what Biden was thinking:

On Jan. 16… a team of senior military officers from the U.S. Central Command (responsible for overseeing American security interests in the Middle East), arrived at the Pentagon to brief Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Michael Mullen on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The team had been dispatched by CENTCOM commander Gen. David Petraeus to underline his growing worries at the lack of progress in resolving the issue. The 33-slide, 45-minute PowerPoint briefing stunned Mullen. The briefers reported that there was a growing perception among Arab leaders that the U.S. was incapable of standing up to Israel, that CENTCOM’s mostly Arab constituency was losing faith in American promises, that Israeli intransigence on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was jeopardizing U.S. standing in the region, and that Mitchell himself was (as a senior Pentagon officer later bluntly described it) “too old, too slow … and too late.”

Title:    Sen. John McCain wants to allow U.S. citizens to be arrested, held indefinitely


By:   Dave Gibson
Date:   03-12-2010

Last week, John McCain introduced a bill into the U.S. Senate which, if passed, would actually allow U.S. citizens to be arrested and detained indefinitely, all without Miranda rights or ever being charged with a crime.


The stated purpose of S. 3081 (The Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act) reads: “To provide for the interrogation and detention of enemy belligerents who commit hostile acts against the United States, to establish certain limitations on the prosecution of such belligerents for such acts, and for
other purposes.”

The bill has nine co-sponsors including Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA).

Section 5 of S. 3081 states:

“An individual, including a citizen of the United
States, determined to be an unprivileged enemy belligerent
under section 3(c)(2) in a manner which satisfies Article
5 of the Geneva Convention Relative to the Treatment of
Prisoners of War may be detained without criminal
charges and without trial for the duration of hostilities
against the United States or its coalition partners in which
the individual has engaged, or which the individual has
purposely and materially supported, consistent with the
law of war and any authorization for the use of military
force provided by Congress pertaining to such hostilities.”

This bill, introduced by McCain, who despite overwhelming evidence, claims to be a “conservative,” would not only take away our right to a trial, but would also allow the federal government to arrest and imprison anyone the current administration deems hostile.

Of course, that would be the same administration whose Homeland Security Secretary has classified veterans, retired law enforcement, Ron Paul supporters, and conservatives as “terrorists.”

If it was not clear before, it should be now that John McCain has as little respect for the Constitution as he does for our borders.

Rebellion in America heats up as 5th state exempts guns

A fifth state – South Dakota – has decided that guns made, sold and used within its borders no longer are subject to the whims of the federal government through its rule-making arm in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and two supporters of the growing groundswell say they hope Washington soon will be taking note.

South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds has signed into law his state's version of a Firearms Freedom Act that first was launched in Montana. It already is law there, in Tennessee, Utah and Wyoming, which took the unusual step of specifying criminal penalties – including both fines and jail time – for federal agents attempting to enforce a federal law on a "personal firearm" in the Cowboy State.

The Rothschilds and their 200 years of political influence

Vatic Note: As you can see from the article "What You Didn't Know About Taxes & The 'Crown'", the deep tie in with England has its roots other than what we the people imagined, and thus the explanation for the deep unreasoning tie in with Israel and the Zionists, its all through the Rothschild blood line.   Remember as you read this that Bush Sr, Bush Jr, and 20 other Presidents were and currently are tied in to the royal family through blood relations.  

Why else should we care??? For contemporary reasons such as this past election cycle for President.  Here is an account of what occurred with one of our candidates and the Rothschilds.

What You Didn't Know About Taxes & The 'Crown'

Vatic Note: The following article explains it fully and I was shocked to find out just how we have not been as free as we thought.   In fact, the fraud perpetrated upon us by the Bank of London and the Queen as been impressive in its intricacy and its success.  This explains it fully.  Thus our enemy is not just the Rothschilds after all.

There are two Crowns operant in England, one being Queen Elizabeth II. Although extremely wealthy, the Queen functions largely in a ceremonial capacity and serves to deflect attention away from the other Crown, who issues her marching orders through their control of the English Parliament. This other Crown is comprised of a committee of 12 banks headed by the Bank of England (House of Rothschild). They rule the world from the 677-acre, independent sovereign state known as The City of London, or simply 'The City.'

The Murderous Mossad and 9-11

Title: The Murderous Mossad and 9-11
By: Christopher Bollyn
Date: Mar 4, 2010

The Israeli Mossad murder of a commander of the military wing of the Hamas (the democratically elected government of Palestine) is just one more provocation by the right-wing Zionist extremist government headed by Benjamin Netanyahu.  The Israeli provocations on the West Bank and occupied Jerusalem are designed to foment a conflict in which the Israelis will escalate the violence.  This is an extremely dangerous and illegal strategy which the United States and world should use every effort to arrest and prevent.  Newspapers from the region are in agreement that Israel is acting to escalate the conflict and foment a war in the region:

Israel's plan to swallow Palestine has reached a peak... its project is to wipe Palestine from the map... an escalation rather than a settlement is looming in the region.
Al-Vefagh editorial (Iran)

The fresh Israeli aggression against the sanctity of the al-Aqsa mosque, and the attacks on worshippers by the Israeli security apparatus, represent the latest in a series of Israeli escalations over the past few weeks... they show that [Israel] is determined to escalate and even expand the conflict.
Al-Quds editorial (Palestine)

The US silence shows that ongoing attempts to resume negotiations have stalled and that those might have to wait until after a new Palestinian intifadah or even war.

America's Secret Prisons

Title: America's Secret Prisons
By: Stephen Lendman
Date: 3-16-10

On January 28 in TomDispatch.com, Anand Gopal headlined, "Night Raids, Hidden Detention Centers, the 'Black Jail,' and the Dogs of War in Afghanistan," recounting unreported US media stories about killings, abductions, detentions, interrogations, and torture in "a series of prisons on US military bases around the country." Bagram prison, for example, is "a facility with a notorious reputation for abusive behavior," including brutalizing torture and cold-blooded murder.

Even worse is the "Black Jail," a facility consisting of individual windowless concrete cells with bright 24-hour lighting, described by one former detainee as "the most dangerous and fearful place" in which prisoners endure appalling treatment.

The pattern is predictable. US/NATO convoys are attacked or reports of Taliban forces are received. Americans respond accordingly, rounding up suspects, mostly innocent civilians, and detaining them for interrogations, torture, abuse and degrading treatment - not just in Afghanistan but in secret black sites globally, according to a January 26 UN Human Rights Council (HRC) report detailing practices engaged in by various countries including America, by far the world's worst offender in its war on terror - one waged against humanity for unchallengeable power and total global dominance.

A Detention Bill You Ought to Read More Carefully

Title: A Detention Bill You Ought to Read More Carefully
By: Marc Ambinder
Date: Mar 5, 2010

Why is the national security community treating the "Enemy Belligerent, Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010," introduced by Sens. John McCain and Joseph Lieberman on Thursday as a standard proposal, as a simple response to the administration's choices in the aftermath of the Christmas Day bombing attempt? A close reading of the bill suggests it would allow the U.S. military to detain U.S. citizens without trial indefinitely in the U.S. based on suspected activity. Read the bill here, and then read the summarized points after the jump.

According to the summary, the bill sets out a comprehensive policy for the detention, interrogation and trial of suspected enemy belligerents who are believed to have engaged in hostilities against the United States by requiring these individuals to be held in military custody, interrogated for their intelligence value and not provided with a Miranda warning.

Title: A leading Japanese politician espouses a 9/11 fantasy

YUKIHISA FUJITA is an influential member of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan. As chief of the DPJ's international department and head of the Research Committee on Foreign Affairs in the upper house of Japan's parliament, to which he was elected in 2007, he is a Brahmin in the foreign policy establishment of Washington's most important East Asian ally. He also seems to think that America's rendering of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, is a gigantic hoax.

The People We Pay to Look Over Our Shoulders

The People We Pay to Look Over Our Shoulders
By ERIC LICHTBLAU

Published: February 22, 2010

At this very moment analysts at the National Security Agency some 30 miles north of the White House are monitoring countless flashpoints of data — cellphone calls to “hot” numbers, an e-mail message on a suspicious server, an oddly worded tweet — as they carom around the globe like pinballs in cyberspace.

The snippets of information could conceivably lead them to Anwar al-Awlaki, a fugitive cleric in Yemen whose fiery sermons have inspired violent jihadists. Or to the next would-be underwear bomber. Or, much more likely in the needle-in-a-haystack world of cyber detection, it might lead to nothing at all — at least nothing of any consequence in determining Al Qaeda’s next target.

This is the world of modern eavesdropping, or signals intelligence, as its adherents call it, and for many years it operated in the shadows. “The Puzzle Palace,” the 1983 best seller by James Bamford that remains the benchmark study of the N.S.A., first pulled back the curtain to provide a glint of unwanted sunlight on the place. And the years after the Sept. 11 attacks — a period in which the surveillance agencies’ muscular new role would lead to secret wiretapping programs inside the United States, expansive data-mining operations and more — gave rise to public scrutiny that made the place a veritable greenhouse of exposure.

(WMR) -- WMR has learned from two El Al sources who worked for the Israeli airline at New York’s John F.

A Guide to the 9/11 Whistleblowers

A Guide to the 9/11 Whistleblowers
Courageous insiders, gagged, hounded and ignored

by James Corbett

When losing a discussion on the facts of 9/11, a so-called 9/11 "debunker" will often rely on an old canard to "prove" that 9/11 could not have been an inside job: "So many people want their quarter hour of fame that even the Men in Black couldn't squelch the squealers from spilling the beans," write self-satisfied defenders of the government story. According to the logic of this argument, if there are no 9/11 whistleblowers then 9/11 was not an inside job.

So what if there are 9/11 whistleblowers? What if these whistleblowers come from every level of government and private industry, individuals who have even had their cases vindicated by internal government reports? As you are about to see, there are numerous such whistleblowers and each one is a thorn in the side of those who want to pretend that the 9/11 Commission represents the sum total of knowledge on the 9/11 attacks.

That is precisely why these whistleblowers are not lauded by legislators or trumpeted by the media, but actively suppressed by government officials and the corporate media alike. These courageous insiders have been sidelined, gagged, hounded from their positions and ignored to the point where their stories are virtually unknown among the general public. And that is exactly why it is vital for the alternative media to make these stories known by bypassing the filters and control of the establishment media.

Has eugenics faded away with time, or has the pseudo science morphed and cloaked itself under new auspices? Were some of the original founders of population control efforts themselves eugenicists? How and when did eugenicists shift from Galton era ideals to Malthusian population control? The history of eugenics is incredibly detailed and expansive, but there are certain issues that are not given as much attention as others. This article attempts to answer these questions and provide a wider perspective on these important issues.

HAITI:Private Contractors 'Like Vultures Coming to Grab the Loot'

Vatic Note:   Privatization of public services, infrastructure, and resources using public taxes to pay for these developed assets, and then turning them over to private "for profit" companies, has been going on in most third world countries, through and with the aid of the IMF and World bank, under the direction and oversight of Goldman Sachs (see "confessions of an Economic Hitman").   Now we here in the US have slowly been going through the same process and its insidious.   Its never discussed, never congressional involvement, rather handled through the Executive branch.  Its Fascism at its finest.   Now Haiti is the next victim and its obvious why all happened as it did to that highly resourced yet poverty ridden country, at the hands of those so adapt at keeping emerging economies in the toilet through outright theft.

VANCOUVER, Canada, Feb 19 (IPS) - Critics are concerned that private military contractors are positioning themselves at the centre of an emerging "shock doctrine" for earthquake-ravaged Haiti.


Next month, a prominent umbrella organisation for private military and logistic corporations, the International Peace Operations Association (IPOA), is co-organising a "Haiti summit" which aims to bring together "leading officials" for "private consultations with attending contractors and investors" in Miami, Florida.

Dubbed the "mercenary trade association" by journalist Jeremy Scahill, author of "Blackwater: the Rise of the World' Most Powerful Mercenary Army", the IPOA wasted no time setting up a "Haiti Earthquake Support" page on its website following the Jan. 12 earthquake that devastated the Caribbean country.

Cheney admits crime of torture?   Just a reminder of how we got here to criminal prosecution of Rumsfeld
By:   Robert Parry
Date:   02/14/2010

If the United States had a functioning criminal justice system for the powerful – not just for run-of-the-mill offenders – former Vice President Dick Cheney would have convicted himself and some of his Bush administration colleagues with his comments on ABC’s “This Week.”


On Sunday, Cheney pronounced himself “a big supporter of waterboarding,” a near-drowning technique that has been regarded as torture back to the Spanish Inquisition and that has long been treated by U.S. authorities as a serious war crime, such as when Japanese commanders were prosecuted for using it on American prisoners during World War II.

Date:    03/01/2010

It's now over two weeks since veteran Justice Department (DOJ) lawyer David Margolis dashed the hopes of those seeking accountability for the Bush administration's torturers, but this is a story of such profound importance that it must not be allowed to slip away.


Margolis decided that an internal report into the conduct of John Yoo and Jay S. Bybee, who wrote the notorious memos in August 2002, which attempted to redefine torture so that it could be used by the CIA, was mistaken in concluding that both men were guilty of "professional misconduct," and should be referred to their bar associations for disciplinary action.

Instead, Margolis concluded, in a memo that shredded four years of investigative work by the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), the DOJ's ethics watchdog, that Yoo and Bybee had merely exercised "poor judgment." As lawyers in the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC), which is charged with providing objective legal advice to the executive branch on all constitutional questions, Yoo and Bybee attempted to redefine torture as the infliction of physical pain "equivalent in intensity to the pain accompanying serious physical injury, such as organ failure, impairment of bodily function, or even death," or the infliction of mental pain which "result[s] in significant psychological harm of significant duration e.g. lasting for months or even years."

The piece has generated controversy, with Goldman Sachs firing back that Taibbi's piece is "an hysterical compilation of conspiracy theories" and a spokesman adding, "We reject the assertion that we are inflators of bubbles and profiteers in busts, and we are painfully conscious of the importance in being a force for good." Taibbi shot back: "Goldman has its alumni pushing its views from the pulpit of the U.S. Treasury, the NYSE, the World Bank, and numerous other important posts; it also has former players fronting major TV shows. They have the ear of the president if they want it." Here, now, are excerpts from Matt Taibbi's piece and video of Taibbi exploring the key issues.

NY FED Under Geithner implicated in Lehman Accounting Fraud Allegation-"Breaking News"

Vatic Note:  Lets also remember, those of you on my list, that I had submitted proof to the FBI of fraud the night before the insolvency was announced when sunday evening the Fed Res Chair, Bernanke,  Paulson, and Lehman CEO met in NY at about 6 pm and the following Wednesday it was discovered they received $350 million dollars/euros from the Bank of Germany (it was monday morning in Germany) and then proceeded to retain the funds and place the debt into the bailout.

No explanation as to where the funds went or where they are now, someone has $385 million they didn' t have at 6 pm sunday.  It obviously didn't go into lehman's company.   A cover up?   In a normal bancruptcy when all parties are aware they intend to file bancruptcy the next day and then proceed to extract funds from those who do not know, then keep the funds, and place the debt into the filing, it is fraud on its face.   The FBI announced an investigation that day when it came out in the German papers what had happened.   Once the investigation was reported, all of a sudden the Bush FBI cancelled it.  Why?   Would this info below have been exposed if the investigation went forward???  Is that why the smaller fraud got buried???  It also means that both Paulson and Bernanke are also complicit since they were at that meeting according to GATA who had a reporter present outside the meeting and saw them all go inside the building.

Quite a few observers, have been stunned and frustrated at the refusal to investigate what was almost certain accounting fraud at Lehman. Despite the bankruptcy administrator’s effort to blame the gaping hole in Lehman’s balance sheet on its disorderly collapse, the idea that the firm, which was by its own accounts solvent, would suddenly spring a roughly $130+ billion hole in its $660 billion balance sheet, is simply implausible on its face. Indeed, it was such common knowledge in the Lehman flailing about period that Lehman’s accounts were such that Hank Paulson’s recent book mentions repeatedly that Lehman’s valuations were phony as if it were no big deal.

NEWS BRIEF: "ID Card for Workers Is at Center of Immigration Plan

Vatic Note:   The Federal Government may be planning to use the crisis over Illegal Workers as the ruse to force National ID cards on every American worker!  But, the news gets worse: The method planned for the ID is Biometric Identification.   Is this another "ruse" to further invade our right to privacy and gut the Bill of Rights?   There is a line which few will willingly cross, and I think this comes close to that line.  Whether that is the line or not, only the American people will finally say.   Make millions unemployed, starving, without any means of support, then will we be more willing to accept this Chain of slavery?  What next?   If you dissent, they will turn off your chip???  Then what?  No work?  All good questions.

Bill Gates talks about ‘vaccines to reduce population’

Vatic Note:  After reading this, if you do not feel outraged, then you have missed the point.   Please read this one all the way through to understand that Eugenics research, that was begun in the 1920's and advanced in the 30's & 40's by the Rockefeller foundation and other robber barons through Dr. Mengeles under Nazi rule. It is not only alive and well today, but further along than at anytime in its history and with the robber baron's control over governments and the secret advancements in technology now at unprecedented levels, it is almost beyond control.    This will give you a strong background of the players, the level of money, and the victims intended to be eugenicized, if that is a word.   The inhumane part about all this is if they had tried bringing people together globally and brought them on board re: the population issue, it could have resulted in a more inclusive, humane, and creative treatment of the problem, than those being offered by the few, the perverted and the incestuous, all because of a misplaced sense of Godhood brought on by their wealth.

More is coming on this so rereading this below with the bold print kept in mind, will be important for the other articles on the way.

Greek police stormed a government printing

Vatic Note:   This article explains why a part of our people to people initiative is geared towards recruiting our law enforcement and military to remain with the people against domestic enemies within each country or better said,  International bankers who are extracting wealth from the nation through control of our respective governments.   The picture will be put up shortly and you will see what the law enforcement did to aid the people against the actions of those betraying their people.  Remember the IMF was the instigator in Greece of these problems, which is an arm of the international Rothschild cabal.   RESISTANCE is an option of last resort, so lets make this people to people initiative work if we can.

Title:    Greek police stormed a government printing
Date:   08 марта 2010  (03/08/2010) 


In Athens, MUP Greece stormed the state printing office. It is reported by TV Channel "Russian 24".

Greek Police want to prevent the publication of Government paper with the text of the law of the new stringent economy measures of the Federal Budget. According to the law of the country, a passed law can come into force only after publication in the official newspaper of the Government of Greece.

The bill, which caused such a reaction, provides a significant reduction in salaries, bonuses and holiday pay, the growth of other taxes and excise taxes .

The Government expects the additional Austerity measures will bring the budget 4.8 billion Euros of additional revenue that would allow reduction in the state budget deficit to the level of 4% against the deficit of Greece in 8.7% of GDP.

Recall also that the staff of the principal of the Greek airline Olmpic Airlines, sacked after sending the airline into private hands, the fifth consecutive day hold in their hands the building of the Chief Financial Management (Treasury), Greece. Because of their actions partially offset by a central Athens street Panepistimiu.

Health “efficiency” means murder - (Australia)

Vatic Note:    It appears their current publically controlled system is simply not working with only 25% of funds reaching patient care.   Is this what we can expect in a governmentally run health care system?  Its already a problem in our Vets and American Indian health care system which are both failing.   Is this another tool for depopulation and eugenics (who is of value to society?).   Keep that in mind, since so far, nothing the elite has done  toward this new global governance of a facsist nature,  has had any benefit to the citizens of these nations.  This gives us all larger perspective on just how coordinated and sold out our leaders are when they follow a game plan at the same time with the same push and elements contained therein, thus our only option is to do the same thing.  Join the "global people to people initiative" above and email your info to vatic2010@gmail.com and join the fight to gain back control of our respective nations, and change that which is already in place.  .

Title: Premature Withdrawal: Washington's Cult of Narcissism and Iraq
By: Tom Engelhardt
Date: Wednesday 10 March 2010


Hubris? We’re bigger than that!

We’ve now been at war with, or in, Iraq for almost 20 years, and intermittently at war in Afghanistan for 30 years. Think of it as nearly half a century of experience, all bad. And what is it that Washington seems to have concluded? In Afghanistan, where one disaster after another has occurred, that we Americans can finally do more of the same, somewhat differently calibrated, and so much better. In Iraq, where we had, it seemed, decided that enough was enough and we should simply depart, the calls from a familiar crew for us to stay are growing louder by the week.

The Human Cost of Guantanamo

Title: The Human Cost of Guantanamo
By: Sari Gelzer and Troy Page
Date: Wednesday 02 December 2009

Andy Worthington has spent the past several years exposing the stories of the hundreds of men who were taken to Guantanamo prison.

The British journalist, who is also a contributing reporter to Truthout, produced a groundbreaking book, "The Guantanamo Files: The Stories of the 774 Detainees in America's Illegal Prison," the only book published that meticulously pieced together the stories of all the men who have been detained in the US prison.

Now Worthington has released a new documentary, "Outside the Law: Stories from Guantanamo," co-directed with filmmaker Polly Nash. The film provides intimate interviews with two former detainees, Omar Deghayes and Moazzam Begg, and their lawyers, Clive Stafford Smith and Tom Wilner. Deghayes and Begg describe how they ended up in US custody, the gruesome conditions they faced while being held by the US and the impact this experience has had on their personal lives.

DEPOPULATION, GENOCIDE AND EUGENICS on the table now????

Vatic Note:   Soon, there will be a commentary done on vatic addressing the Governments movement toward Eugenics and depopulation of our people.   The bad news is this is beginning here in the US right now and has been for about several years but has increased under Rahm Emmanuals brother, Ezekiel Emmanual who is an avowed Eugenicist and has been appointed "the health Czar" Under Obama with no approval or committee hearing on his appointment because of his writings that would have prevented him from ever reaching that high a post within the US Gov.   

He previously wrote quite a bit about the need to use public policy to move the nation from Valuing "individual" rights to valuing "societies rights" by supporting  policies shifting from everyone to only those citizens deemed PRODUCTIVE and thus valuable to the society as a whole and that was to be determined by those in power.  The result were his recommendations that those diseases that accompany age would be eliminated from basic guaranteed health care.    I have those writings and they will be put up for you to see when the commentary is finished. 

DERIVATIVES BUBBLE ON SENIORS LIVES 

Wall street has set up another derivatives betting on when seniors will die off.  They have also rigged another scam to use on Seniors and it goes like this..... seniors have life insurance with cash value.    The face value is always much higher than the cash value.   When severely strapped for cash, Wall street brokers give the senior 75% of their "CASH VALUE" on their policy  which might be only $7,500, but the face value of the policy maybe $100,000.  

The senior then signs over that policy to the Banker as beneficiary when he/she dies for that "face value" of the policy of $100,000. The surviving senior spouse gets nothing. You can tell a lot about a psychopath by his lack of humanity and caring for the "least of these".   

So now, it becomes important to know just how fast can you make that senior die so those millions in that bubble can be raked into the bankers.    Thus policies have been geared to making it harder and harder for them to survive.   That is criminal and if intentional, its first degree murder.   Remember who owns the politicians.... thus they are included in this scam by the laws they pass that aid these bankers in their objectives.  This is beyond Satanic. 

I put this here because its plain that this is an added movement toward taking away the support seniors need to "survive".   Between the cost of drugs,  the cut back in medicare, the cut in social security benefits by freezing COLA's for TWO years.... cutting food stamps, LEAP and heat subsidies, forbidding cheaper drugs from Canada and now this to take even more away from the seniors, is moving wholesale into killing off our seniors through public policy which officially MAKES EUGENICS THE POLICY OF THE LAND. (VN:  that is called "A crime against humanity")


If you cannot produce as a slave you will not receive benefits and will be genocided out of the nation using public policy.  That is seniors, seriously and permantly wounded vets, the handicapped, etc.   Its going to be a killer commentary when its finished.  

In this instance, as usual, its the bankers who made out since they have all been paid off on those debts through government guarantees.    No mention of any means test on these either.   

In some cases down right fraud has occurred in cheating seniors out of their income when in fact they never owed the debt or had paid it off previously. (VN:  This is rampid and because there is no statute of limitations, seniors don't know enough to save their documentation after 9 years when everything else is pass the statute of limitations so most throw their documentation away. You have to be truly soul-less to steal from seniors as bankers, and its happening more and more.  Someone needs to file a class action law suit. )   That will be a whole  other article with documentation to prove it.  All of this in collusion with the Wall Street bankers.   Another bailout?  Or funds to fund more bailouts???

Title:  Defaulted Loans May Haunt Seniors


By:   Ellen E. Schultz
Date:   Monday, March 8, 2010

A little–noticed law could soon result in smaller Social Security checks for hundreds of thousands of the elderly and disabled who owe the U.S. money from defaulted loans and other debts more than a decade old.

Social Security benefits are off–limits to creditors, such as credit–card companies and banks. But the U.S. can collect debts to federal agencies by "offsetting," or withholding Social Security and disability payments.

The Treasury currently withholds benefits of 3.1 million Social Security recipients to recover defaulted student–, farm– and small–business loans, unpaid income taxes, amounts veterans owe for health care, and other debts to the government.

Previously, the U.S. hasn't been able to withhold Social Security payments to recover most debts delinquent for more than ten years.

But a provision in the 2008 Farm Bill lifted the ten–year statute of limitations on the government's ability to withhold Social Security benefits in collecting debts other than student loans—for which the statute of limitations was lifted in 1997—and income taxes, where the limit remains 10 years.

This means that a person who defaulted on a small–business loan in 1995, for example, and who is receiving Social Security could be notified that his benefits may be reduced each month until the debt, with interest, fees, and penalties, is paid. The Treasury can withhold 15% of the benefit, though it can't be reduced to below $750. Tax debts have no floor.

Virginia first state to challenge federal health insurance mandate

Vatic Note:  Normally, we try to stay focused on the big picture and on the surface this appears to be a much smaller picture, rather somewhat local or even national, but the implications of this are big.  Global Fascism is the goal and "regionalizing" various global geographic areas, such as the EU, is the "process" for moving toward that goal.   To regionalize, our international banker controlled government has been consolidating more and more power at the federal level at the expense of the states.  

Once that power is fully consolidated, then there are three nations with consolidated power that can then regionalize with unelected international banker and corp governance, better know as Fascism; Canada, Mexico and the United States of America and do so without the will of the people being considered.  

These acts by these states, such as Virginia on this issue, or Montana on the gun issue, are one of the many ways we can thwart this effort by the neocons to move toward a regional governance such as that experienced by the EU that are now having severe problems due to loss of sovereignty within their own countries in every aspect of their functioning, legislatively, executively, and judicially.  It behooves all foreign nations to pay attention to how we are handling this because every country is going to be exposed to the same process either with or without war.  That is what makes this article so important.

More and more power is being usurped by the European Union and the various countries are finding it difficult to withstand the movement toward greater and greater regional control with no elected reps and no accountability to the citizens of the various nations.  That is why this nullification movement is so important.   .  

Man who broke the Bank of England, George Soros, 'at centre of hedge funds plot to cash in on fall of the euro'

Vatic Notes:    Remember Soro's name has emerged more and more as the main operative for the final takeovers of parts of Europe for the Rothschild Octopus.   We published an article on this regarding, in part, his role in securing Serbia and other parts of Eastern Europe which is something the western press seldom covers.    It now appears Soros was also simultaneously working on western europe through the EU which should teach us important lessons about the dangers of  regionalizing, making it much simpler to gain total control over more countries at one time.    It simply makes it easier for the Rothschild cabal to secure total control over the nations of the world and all that they possess, land, natural resources, water, food, businesses, financial and economic life, slave labor and more.   See previous article called  "The Rothschild Octopus" published on here two weeks ago.    Click on the link and scroll down to the picture of Soros and read how he secured Serbia and other eastern european counties for the Rothschild mafia.   

vaticproject.blogspot.com/2010/02/rothschild-octopus.html

Add this article below to the above information and it appears that Europe is almost under total control of the Rothschild Octopus.   Is this what they have planned for our region??? Its also going on in Asia as well?  Its of sufficient concern now to watch this closely and resist any attempts to regionalize this continent.

Fiction of Marjah as City Was US Information War

Fiction of Marjah as City Was US Information War
by: Gareth Porter  |  Inter Press Service

For weeks, the U.S. public followed the biggest offensive of the Afghanistan War against what it was told was a "city of 80,000 people" as well as the logistical hub of the Taliban in that part of Helmand. That idea was a central element in the overall impression built up in February that Marja was a major strategic objective, more important than other district centres in Helmand.

It turns out, however, that the picture of Marja presented by military officials and obediently reported by major news media is one of the clearest and most dramatic pieces of misinformation of the entire war, apparently aimed at hyping the offensive as a historic turning point in the conflict.

Marja is not a city or even a real town, but either a few clusters of farmers' homes or a large agricultural area covering much of the southern Helmand River Valley.
