Wall Street Whistleblower Proves That Money Never Sleeps

Vatic Note: Believe it or not, this will actually tie into the series I am doing today on Food, profits, and control of us through control of the food which then allows these bankers to control the level of profits, not based on market principles.   You will be able to see the tie in by his exposure to the level of control htey have over our nation at every single level.

I must confess, I thought I knew a lot more about all of this wall street corruption than many, however, this series by this insider whistleblower is without a doubt the most comprehensive treatment of what has gone on that I have ever read, seen or heard about.  After watching these videos, I realized just how much I  didn't know.    He leaves no stone unturned, he discusses, IN DETAILED SPECIFICS, market manipulations, actual violations of the laws, Gold market manipulations, MONEY LAUNDERING and the extent of it, is more than we had guessed, and he further discusses how these corp/banks work, even the perversion of the sex slave trade by Dynacorp and others, along with the missing 2.7 trillion dollars from the pentagon, and dynacorps role in it, along with 9-11.   He discusses the Fed Reserve in full along with money and the scam that the fed reserve has been for all these years.  He also discusses the fate of other whistle blowers who are now in jail and had committed no crime other than whistleblowing.  I highly recommend you watch all of these, but also pass them around since this will dispell the illusion that the bankers are not the problem in our country,  and shift the attention to where it belongs.   Its way worse than I had even imagined.   Your in for a real treat.   If you can't watch it in one sitting, simply save the link and come back and pick where you left off.   I swear its worth it and the man has paid a serious high price for his integrity and may pay more for doing this complete expose to us, the public.  If these corrupt bankers were prosecuted just with the evidence that he alone amassed, they would end up with life sentences at the very least.   That is how corrupt our political system has become.

AMERICA’S “FALSE FLAG” WAR ON DRUGS

Vatic Note:  Do we have ANY wars that are for real???  I am beginning to suspect not including the bogus war on drugs.   There is a 9 part video series coming up at 5 pm today and in watching that, you will notice  the insider whistleblower outline the extensive money laundering that is going on not only in banks but being fed through corporate America.   That surprised me as I simply thought it was pretty much the banks, but now with this expose, it appears there is much more deception than even I had imagined.   I am certainly getting an education today with this series of articles.  This means its not just the Bush drug mafia, but this may well be pervasive through all of the major wall street brokerage houses, the corporations that they are heavily invested in and others.   This was an excellent picture of exactly what this drug war is really all about.

AMERICA’S “FALSE FLAG” WAR ON DRUGS

Monterey & Marja

Right after 4/20 celebration of Weed Day in California, the duo of Supernova Afghan experts from Monterey published their mind-boggling trip on Marja opium.

What could have been a funny frolic for a couple of stoned students, has turned out to be a false flag operation to exonerate ISAF/UK/USA for clandestine promotion of narco-caliphate in Afghanistan and shift the blame squarely on the USSR.   To detox this opium opus, I’ll examine the validity of its claims against the facts:

Part one: alibi for NATO and number-crunching for dope management

For starters, the flashy headline, “In Afghanistan, Poppy Eradication Pits Russia vs. NATO”, jars with the opening, which splendidly omits NATO from any association or participation in US & UK narco-policy, financially or otherwise:

‘Despite having spent over $1 billion on counter narcotics programs in Afghanistan since 2002, including eradication efforts, the U.S. and the U.K. have failed to curb the illicit drug industry.’

The only way to reconcile this contradiction is to come clean that NATO is a new abbreviation for US/UK military joint venture. Now, let’s check the numbers:

According to GAO AFGHANISTAN DRUG CONTROL March 92010 report, ‘Since 2005 the US has allotted approximately $2.5 billion’ on [counter?] narcotics alone, (p.3) with additional $1.4 billion for alternative development and agriculture programs, (p.4). – which means that overall, the US has wasted, siphoned off or invested in Afghan drug control a whopping amount of $3.9 billion – without the UK input.

This margin of error with dates (2003-2005) and dollars (1- 3.9 bln) in the first paragraph about the US & UK gives a fair feel what to expect when it comes to ‘analyzing’ the Soviet role and Russian stance on drug disease in Afghanistan.

‘The massive decrease in eradication reflects NATO’s new emphasis on attacking entrepreneurs [?] who benefit from the drug trade higher up the value chain, while sparing the lower-level participants, such as farmers. ’

Only dedicated joint chain smoker could exhale such a fairy cloud:

The concept – to compensate eradication decrease by interdiction increase – seems a sound proposition in theory and on paper, but in practice, it’s utter wishful thinking in Afghanistan. Ask the former governor of Helmand, aka anti-Soviet freedom fighter, what happened after he was accidentally ‘interdicted’ with a few tons of opium is his mansion. The Afghan viceroy has twisted this concept into subterfuge: full stop to eradication and non-start to interdiction.

The link reflects NATO’s new emphasis leads to …3-years old WPR article, implying that ‘NATO’s new emphasis’ hasn’t changed and remains stale & stinking since then.

Despite relentless US efforts, NATO hasn’t attacked anybody anywhere – and never will (see the Alliance caveats). Apart from a clinical enlargement obsession, NATO has excelled only at bombing civilians in Yugoslavia & Afghanistan – naturally, in self-defense.

To call narco terrorists ‘entrepreneurs & participants’ would be appropriate in the context of ‘Transnational Dope Enterprise’. In this case, it’s a rather self-incriminating way to show the true colors and demonstrate the attitude.

Part two: opium sci-fi fantasy or hands off drug plantations

This is an appeal to the CIA credentials and anathema to herbicides Spike and Weed-B-Gone as a last resort to discredit aerial eradication. Tough luck, because:

On the drug issue, the CIA operates at cross purposes with the DEA & SOF – the one promotes it, the others fight it. Despite all the talk about the difference between the Northern & Southern part of the Republic of California, to dial 911 to Langley for beefing up the argument is hardly politically correct or a shoo-in even in Monterey. Hollywood has accurately captured this dope narrative in no uncertain terms: the good guys, DEA and Green Berets vets vs. the bad guys, CIA renegades’ drug network.

To equate aerial eradication (the best method) with the toxic herbicides of the last century, Spike or Weed-B-Gone (the worst means) is a glaring example of scare mongering & disinformation shtick. I respectfully disagree with the most prominent Republican Californian, Dana Rohrabacher, on many issues, but heartily embrace his views on Afghan drugs remedy: “Opium production obviously remains a great challenge. Micro-herbicides can provide a solution. The State Department for years has refused to test this anti-opium poppy-killing fungus, though I saw to it that money was budgeted for such testing.” (The Washington Times, March 3, 2009). I can only add that fungus, as an organic, not a chemical substance, is the best match for aerial eradication to wipe out the root-cause of narco-terrorism.

Part tree: the Wilson War blame game

Herein comes the Cold War shower of clichés, just as I warned you from the outset:

‘It was the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan that helped propel the country into the realm of industrial-scale narcotics production… Soviet scorched-earth operations resulted in the destruction of one-quarter to one-third of all irrigation systems.’

First, the Soviet COIN in Afghanistan (as declassified DIA files properly attested) has been meticulously documented by the US National Archive, without any shred of evidence to substantiate such USIA canards.
So back to the first question: who propelled Afghanistan into a ‘full-blown narco state’?

This is what Alfred W McCoy had to say on Fool’s Day in Asia Times:

“The answer to this critical question lies in the history of the three Afghan wars in which Washington has been involved over the past 30 years – the CIA covert warfare of the 1980, the civil war of the 1990s (fueled at its start by $900 million in CIA funding), and since 2001, the US invasion…In each of these conflicts, Washington has tolerated drug trafficking by its Afghan allies as the price of military success – a policy of benign neglectthat has helped make Afghanistan today the world’s number one narco-state…the CIA covert war served as the catalyst that transformed the Afghan-Pakistan borderlands into the world’s largest heroin producing region”.

Here’s the real McCoy answer to the second implied question: In addition to the USAID disastrous irrigation project in Helmand that resulted in land salinization, who later destroyed the unique treasure of Afghan agriculture – high-value added perennial tree crops, including walnut & pistachio?

“While the Soviets simply blasted the landscape with firepower, the Taliban, with an unerring instinct for their society’s economic jugular, violated the unwritten rules of traditional Afghan warfare by cutting down the orchards on the vast Shomali plain north of Kabul”. What shall I say? Bull’s eye!

Mission accomplished

With the toxic target identified, engaged & neutralized – without collateral damage, excessive force, or overkill – let me run the last pass on my KA-50 over the smoke-belching debris and release the warning flare on the way home.

At the end of the day, this opium opus has made a disservice to the US Navy in general and to the NPS, the Naval Postgraduate School in particular, and especially to the memory of the Navy SEALS sent in harm’s way to the Afghan Valley of Death. Why?

False flag uncovered

Because this dope-loving duo officially associated with the NPS has inadvertently deprived Rear Adm. Gregory Smith, who is in charge of info ops in Afghanistan, the last chance of credible deniability to dismiss the growing suspicion that it was he who had commissioned that propaganda trash to the Naval Postgraduate School to distract attention from the Marja drug deal.

ALERT! The Globes food is under attack, Bill S 510 for the US.

Vatic Note: MAJOR ALERT! The Globe is under attack at a fundamental level, that of our very survival needs in our food supply. This is probably the most serious issue we have faced yet today in the past 10 years bar none. This is worse than the Patriot Act, Gun confiscation, Bailouts, drug deaths, etc. The SERIOUSNESS OF THIS ISSUE demands you check out these links and see just how dangerous this bill is and this must become the defining vote for your congressmen and senators and they must know this is going to be considered "Treason" if they vote for it (and I strongly recommend you begin to finally use that word since that is what it is). They then become the enemy of the people Understand this is going on globally. I beg you to watch this video before you read this article to understand jsut how serious this attack against us, our food supply and our very health is. This bill has to be a no compromise issue for us with our elected officials. Then we have to finally do SOMETHING about all this. When you see the players involved and who was point on this bill then even JFK's accident becomes so much more clear. Remember, he had announced his intention to run for Hillary's senate seat in NY. Keeping that in mind, then look at who was the original sponsor of this bill, who the marketing company was for her bill, and who their clients are such as monsantos, then deductive reasoning will leave you no other explanations for what is and has occurred to this date. This is the "control" mechanism for all else that will come down the road...RFID chips.... you misbehave, they turn off your chip, no food. As I said this is serious. IF THERE WAS EVER A TIME WE NEEDED TO FIGHT HARD FOR SOMETHING, THIS IS IT.   Pass this around to everyone on your lists.  Watch this video first, since Canada is having the exact same bill in their system right now, so his comments are relevant to us.

S 510 is hissing in the grass

http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/2010/04/24/s-510-is-hissing-in-the-grass/#more-1828
April 24, 2010 ·
By Steve Green, Food Freedom

S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h111-2749  may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US. It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money.

“If accepted [S 510] would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God.” ~Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower.

It is similar to what India faced with imposition of the salt tax during British rule, only S 510 extends control over all food in the US, violating the fundamental human right to food.

Monsanto says it has no interest in the bill and would not benefit from it, but Monsanto’s Michael Taylor who gave us rBGH and unregulated genetically modified (GM) organisms, appears to have designed http://yupfarming.blogspot.com/2009/12/monsantos-baby-s-510.html  it and is waiting as an appointed Food Czar to the FDA (a position unapproved by Congress) to administer the agency it would create — without judicial review — if it passes. S 510 would give Monsanto unlimited power over all US seed, food supplements, food and farming.

History

In the 1990s, Bill Clinton introduced HACCP (Hazardous Analysis Critical Control Points) purportedly to deal with contamination in the meat industry. Clinton’s HACCP delighted the offending corporate (World Trade Organization “WTO”) meat packers since it allowed them to inspect themselves, eliminated thousands of local food processors (with no history of contamination), and centralized meat into their control. Monsanto promoted HACCP. http://www.organicconsumers.org/irrad/ctf.cfm

In 2008, Hillary Clinton, urged a powerful centralized food safety agency as part of her campaign for president. (VN:  Remember, JFK Jr, had announced his intention to run for the Senate Seat that Hillary now holds and shortly there after he had a small plane accident, with controversy, and she is now the Senator that won that seat with the help of the company discussed below).  Her advisor was Mark Penn, CEO of Burson Marsteller*, a giant PR firm representing Monsanto. http://www.corporatewatch.org/?lid=395/strong/font/pp  Clinton lost, but Clinton friends such as Rosa DeLauro, whose husband’s firm lists Monsanto http://www.greenbergresearch.com/index.php?ID=109  as a progressive client and globalization as an area of expertise, introduced early versions of S 510. (VN: See Board of Dir description of one of the partners Rosner, A dangerous special interest lobby, a globalist, and a Zionist, Netanyahu is one of his big clients, along with the Israeli Project (whatever that is): http://www.greenbergresearch.com/index.php?ID=825 ,

S 510 fails on moral, social, economic, political, constitutional, and human survival grounds.

1. It puts all US food and all US farms under Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, in the event of contamination or an ill-defined emergency. It resembles the Kissinger Plan. (depopulation)  (VN: that is how long the enemy has had this food control on the books, this is more dangerous than gun control).

2. It would end US sovereignty over its own food supply by insisting on compliance with the WTO, thus threatening national security. It would end the Uruguay Round Agreement Act of 1994, which put US sovereignty and US law under perfect protection.  Instead, S 510 says:

COMPLIANCE WITH INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENTS.  (VN: Another step to illegal globalizing and destruction of sovereignty)

Nothing in this Act (or an amendment made by this Act) shall be construed in a manner inconsistent with the agreement establishing the World Trade Organization or any other treaty or international agreement to which the United States is a party.

3. It would allow the government, under Maritime Law, to define the introduction of any food into commerce (even direct sales between individuals) as smuggling into “the United States.” Since under that law, the US is a corporate entity and not a location, “entry of food into the US” covers food produced anywhere within the land mass of this country and “entering into” it by virtue of being produced.

4. It imposes Codex Alimentarius   on the US, a global system  of control over food. It allows the United Nations (UN), World Health Organization (WHO), UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and the WTO to take control of every food on earth and remove access to natural food supplements. Its bizarre history and its expected impact to adequate nutrition (while mandating GM food, GM animals, pesticides, hormones, irradiation of food, etc.) threatens all safe and organic food  and health itself, since the world knows now it needs vitamins to survive, not just to treat illnesses.

5. It would remove the right to clean, store and thus own seed in the US, putting control of seeds in the hands of Monsanto and other multinationals, threatening US security. See Seeds – How to criminalize them,  for more details.

6. It includes NAIS, an animal traceability program that threatens all small farmers and ranchers raising animals. The UN is participating through the WHO, FAO, WTO, and World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) in allowing mass slaughter of even heritage breeds of animals and without proof of disease. Biodiversity   in farm animals is being wiped out to substitute   genetically engineered animals on which corporations hold patents. Animal diseases can be falsely declared. S 510 includes the Centers for Disease Control (CDC),  despite its corrupt involvement  in the H1N1 scandal,   which is now said to have been concocted by the corporations.

7. It extends a failed and destructive HACCP to all food, thus threatening to do to all local food production and farming what HACCP did to meat production – put it in corporate hands and worsen food safety.

8. It deconstructs what is left of the American economy. It takes agriculture and food, which are the cornerstone of all economies, out of the hands of the citizenry, and puts them under the total control of multinational corporations influencing the UN, WHO, FAO and WTO, with HHS, and CDC, acting as agents, with Homeland Security as the enforcer. (VN: What does Homeland security have to do with food growing in this country?  Can you begin to see the real danger now of unelected & unaccountable GLOBAL FASCISM?). The chance to rebuild the economy based on farming, ranching, gardens, food production, natural health, and all the jobs, tools and connected occupations would be eliminated.

9. It would allow the government to mandate antibiotics, hormones, slaughterhouse waste, pesticides and GMOs. This would industrialize every farm in the US, eliminate local organic farming, greatly increase global warming from increased use of oil-based products and long-distance delivery of foods, and make food even more unsafe. The five items listed — the Five Pillars of Food Safety http://shivchopra.com/?p=228  — are precisely the items in the food supply which are the primary source of its danger.

10. It uses food crimes as the entry into police state power and control. The bill postpones defining all the regulations to be imposed; postpones defining crimes to be punished, postpones defining penalties to be applied. It removes fundamental constitutional protections from all citizens in the country, making them subject to a corporate tribunal with unlimited power and penalties, and without judicial review. It is (similar to C-6 in Canada) the end of Rule of Law http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7_0HlCwb8A  in the US.

Financing World Hunger: How the financial markets create hunger and make huge profits

Vatic Note:   Before we begin with the markets, how they operate and what the SEC is doing in all of this, please watch this video to gain a perspective on the subject we are about to engage in about what the players do unethically and maybe even illegally.   Where is the peoples watchdog on all of this?  What are they doing?  Then when reading the article, remember several elements that are man made that affect weather and thus growing seasons and droughts and floods, and those are "Chemtrails" with chemicals which affect the soil,  Haarp which is used to manipulate weather,  and finally DU poisoning which is spreading due to its fine particle nature and thus easily disbursed through weather and wind.  Its infested into the water supply, soil and air, which all affects food growth and quality, food shortages, etc.  Just keep that in mind as you read. Also keep in mind that bills are in congress now, to also take monoply control over all food grown and raised in the US, making individual food growth illegal, like small personal farms, or backyard gardens as well as small animal herds for personal use and not commercial sale.   Remember, this month they raided an Amish farm simply as a war game to test our tolerance for doing such actions.   Markets can be manipulated through all of those actions.  Thus someone can make trillions of dollars (raised prices) investing with the knowledge that no competition ensures higher prices as well as shortages of food itself through  these other events mentioned above. .

Financing World Hunger: How the financial markets create hunger and make huge profits


“Food is produced by farmers everywhere in the world; but it is mostly bought and sold as commodities by ‘middlemen’, now mostly big corporations that trade globally, not just in a commodities market, but also in an elaborate financial derivatives market that pushes food prices up and creates price volatility.”

The Institute of Science in Society
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho and Prof. Peter Saunders

World food crisis rerun?

Food prices have been rising since 2003. By mid-2008, the food commodity price index peaked at 230 percent of its 2002 value, with most of the increase due to the grain prices. Corn and wheat both reached 350 percent and rice 530 percent respectively of their 2002 values [1]. The United Nations declared 2008 the year of the global food crisis even before prices peaked [2], and an estimated 150 million were added to the world’s hungry that year [3]. Although food prices have fallen from their peak, they remained well above 2002 levels;.By the end of 2009, more than a billion people are critically hungry, with 24 000 dying of hunger each day, over half of them children [3, 4]. The UN Food Programme faces a budget shortfall of US$4.1 billion.

The UN’s special rapporteur on the right to food Olivier de Schutter blames [5] “inaction to halt speculation on agricultural commodities and continued biofuels policies”, and warns of a rerun of the 2008 food price crisis in 2010 or 2011. What happened in 2007-8 was a “price crisis, not a food crisis”, he says, precipitated by speculation in the financial market that was not linked to insufficient food being produced.

It would be a mistake to dismiss other threats to food production, notably the inherently unsustainable “green revolution” agricultural model that is highly dependent on rapidly depleting resources such as fossil fuels and water, and monoculture crops especially vulnerable to physical and biological stresses associated with climate change (see [6] ‘Land Rush’ as Threats to Food Security Intensify). Nonetheless, the disproportionate influence of the unregulated financial market on the real economy of goods and services (see [7] Financing Poverty, SiS40) is most devastating for people’s access to food, a basic necessity.

Al-Qaeda Chief In Iraq: Captured, Killed, Never Actually Existed, Re-Captured, Now Killed Again

Al-Qaeda Chief In Iraq: Captured, Killed, Never Actually Existed, Re-Captured, Now Killed Again

Ludicrous story of terrorist admitted to be a “fictional character” by U.S. officials

Steve Watson
Prisonplanet.com [1]

Monday, April 19th, 2010

U.S. and Iraqi officials have today announced that two “Al-Qaeda in Iraq” leaders have been killed in an air strike carried out by American troops. A major flaw in the story that seems to have been overlooked, is that both of the men have already been reported captured and killed on several occasions, with U.S. officials also having previously declared one of them a “fictional character” that was invented by the other!

The Washington Post [2] reports:

The deaths of Abu Ayyub al-Masri, the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, and Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, the head of an umbrella group that includes al-Qaeda in Iraq, should disrupt insurgent attacks inside the country, officials said. Their slayings could also provide Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki (pictured above) with a decisive political boost at a critical time.

“The death of these terrorists is potentially the most significant blow to al-Qaeda in Iraq since the beginning of the insurgency,” Gen. Ray Odierno, the top commander of U.S. troops in Iraq said in a statement. “There is still work to do but this is a significant step forward in ridding Iraq [of] terrorists.”

The two insurgent leaders were said to have been killed on Saturday in a night raid involving Iraqi and American forces.

Reuters reports [3]:

United States military officials confirmed that Iraqi security forces had killed the two men. “The death of these two terrorists is a potentially devastating blow to Al Qaeda in Iraq,” the American command said in a statement.

He (the Iraqi prime minister) said the house was destroyed, and the two bodies were found in a hole in the ground where they had apparently been hiding.

Bizarrely, the Reuters piece quotes the Iraqi prime minister pinpointing the location of the raid as “a house in Thar-Thar, a rural area 50 miles west of Baghdad that is regarded as a hotbed of Qaeda activity”, however, the Washington Post report quotes U.S. officials saying the raid occurred “a few miles southwest of Tikrit”. If you look at a map of Iraq, those two descriptions do not entirely add up, unless you consider “a few miles” to be over 100. Certainly a more specific location could have been given.

However, that is perhaps the least of the problems surrounding this story.

No Ash Over Poland for funeral, see video news report showing clear skies, Where was Obama? Playing Golf!

Vatic Note:    Also watch up dated news video as more comes out. Interviews of Polish people and some views of the funeral and peoples reactions to their president. Reminds me of JFK, doesn't it? This is a very comprehensive on site in poland, news report covering and updating a  lot more information.   It also references the confiscation of reporters films and pictures of the site,  and talks about a Russian journalist who managed to hang onto his.   She also talks about What the Polish people are saying, and no contradiction about who may have been alive after the crash, but enough to use weapons to kill the survivors, so right now our translation stands that the President was alive after the crash.  

New Video implicates Others in Polish Plane Crash
http://www.examiner.com/x-37620-Conservative-Examiner~y2010m4d24-Videonew-report-implicates-Russian-govt-in-Polish-plane-crash         

Jane Bergermeister, April 25, 2010

New information has come to light concerning the Polish plane crash that killed the main figures of Poland's government, including its President.

According to investigative reporter Jane Burgermeister, the black box indicates no mechanical issues with the plane and no interference on the part of Poland's President to force a landing of the plane against the wishes of the pilot.

In addition, there is no indication at all from the recovered record that the plane attempted several landings, as reported by Russian officials. The plane attempted to land only once.

Discrepancies also exist with regard to claims by Russian officials regarding crash logistics, the ability of the pilot to speak Russian, and other official statements that do not square with the facts.

In addition, no bodies nor their possessions were found in video footage taken after the crash . Videos of the crash scene indicate nothing but wreckage. This is due to the fact that the deceased and their possessions were removed by Russian officials and taken to Moscow. Russian officials were also observed making curious changes to runway lights and tampering with radar equipment.

All forensic evidence concerning the crash was removed by Russian officials, making it impossible for Polish officials to examine this evidence. However, a video taken briefly after the crash is now being examined by Polish forensics specialists. The video captures small caliber gun shots being fired after the crash.

Burgermeister's video report is an eye-opener that sheds new light on this issue, which has international implications. If the following video is rendered inoperative, use the link above to access the video.



Check for more breaking news on this story.   I am beginning to wonder if "globalizing" means doing away with borders which for Poland would be devastating.   Its happened before, but they have always managed to bring the nation back together.

Doctors Wrap Babies In Protective Vaccine "Cocoons

Vatic Note:   Nice name for the same old drugging of our children.   Well, we will see I suppose.   Here is what the sender of this article stated which I thought valuable enough to place here for sharing.

"This reminds me, of what the de facto did, when they gave smallpox infected blankets to Native americans, in order to kill them off"  

Certainly makes one wonder, considering the entire vaccine scam that got outted.

Doctors Wrap Babies In Protective Vaccine "Cocoons"

16 Apr 2010

Doctors are wrapping babies in vaccine "security blankets" to protect them from disease in a little-known tactic called "cocooning."

Cocooning is a way of wrapping infants too young to be vaccinated against pertussis in a blanket of immunity. Pertussis is commonly called whooping cough because of the distinctive "whoop" gasping sound an infected patient makes when he or she coughs. Physicians say if the baby is too young to get vaccinated, the next best thing is to ensure the people near the baby are healthy. Cocooning vaccinates the baby's mother and other relatives near the child with the protective pertussis shot, explains Texas Medicine magazine, the official publication of the Texas Medical Association (TMA).

This technique is important, physician experts say, because infants are most likely to contract whooping cough, and it can make them very ill. Statistics bear that out. The Texas Department of State Health Services reports that, as of early December, the only Texans who died from pertussis last year were babies younger than three months old.

Infants are too young to be immunized against pertussis so they stand a greater chance of getting sick from it. They cannot receive their first pertussis vaccine until they are 2 months old, and are not fully protected until they receive multiple doses, usually when they reach 15 to 18 months old.

Health officials have begun cocooning infants in the Williamson County area north of Austin, due to a serious pertussis outbreak there. Far more Williamson County residents have contracted whooping cough than the state average - approximately 185 cases per 100,000 residents in 2009, compared with fewer than 10 people per 100,000 statewide as of early December.

"The goal of the cocooning project is that everyone who comes in contact with a newborn infant receives a Tdap vaccination," says David W. Martin, MD, chief medical officer of St. David's Round Rock Medical Center in Round Rock, in the heart of Williamson County. Tdap is the tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis vaccine for adults. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends infants receive the first three doses of the DTaP (child version) vaccine at 2, 4, and 6 months of age. Children then should receive the fourth shot between 15 and 18 months of age, and a fifth when they enter school, at 4 to 6 years of age.

In the Williamson County cocooning project, physicians and other health officials attempt to educate and administer the Tdap shot to mothers who come to the Round Rock hospital to deliver their babies. The goal is to teach the mother about the importance of immunization, and to vaccinate her and others close to the baby.

Strategy & Tactics for the "People-to-People" Initiative - A Beginning

(see the "people-to-people" intiative "strategy and Tactics" above in the link at the top of this blog)

Strategy & Tactics for the "People-to-People" Initiative - A Beginning

by Vatic Master

I.  Introduction

The People to People initiative was begun to unite the people of various countries together to stand against the few and to do so within their POWER as a United Force for Good for themselves, their cultures, religions, and nation states.   We completed and approved a Mission statement that still has some kinks to work out, but essentially, it is done.   Now comes the strategy and tactics to impliment that mission/goal of the group.

In dealing with this part of the agenda, it became clear early that this entire project will need to be taken on from many different levels.  Any strategy has to begin with each of us within ourselves before we can change our world.   The world we are inheriting is because we created it with  manifesting ourselves into the reality/life in the condition we are each in.  We need to change how we see and believe about our world, then we can bring the rest of the world with us.   Once we "begin" work on our internal selves, then we can simultaneously begin adopting the actions and behavior we wish to see in our new world and begin to lead by example.  Return to the values of integrity, caring, loving and helping our neighbor,  leave fear and hate behind. 

How do we do this?   Well fortunately when we called for tactics and strategy, we were lucky enough to get responses from some who believed that "change first comes from within" and they provided those suggestions as a foundation for all other changes that will be derived from our own changes within.   These suggestions can be applied by all of us through whatever religion, philosophy or beliefs we carry and simply need to be adopted by ourselves to our beliefs.   That is easy to do since almost all beliefs with the exception of satanic or Molech beliefs, are geared toward the human spirit and its nurturing and wonderment.

II.  Strategy 1:   Change Our Map of Internal Reality  

This strategy requires daily work, and maybe twice a day depending on your commitment to it.  This will not only change our external world ultimately, but will change our personal lives as well.   When you enter into any venture with your whole being, then it becomes critical that "wholeness" is grounded in the right energy. 

This piece of strategy and tactics was given to us anonymously and thus I am passing it on to you in the same way.   Please read and implement as a beginning and continue daily while we work on the other strategies and tactics that will be coming down the line.   There is a part II to our internal work which will follow this first part.   I deeply believe, when I read this,  that this is and was the foundation for what lies ahead, it can only happen this way as a beginning "BY FOCUSING AND BECOMING THE CHANGE WE WANT TO SEE". .

III.  Tactic and Practice:  

A peaceful tactic to begin manifesting a new world is to visualize the world we would like to live in....doing this every day for five to fifteen minutes. As many of you are aware, this is a powerful "action" to take "together". Some suggestions to visualize are:

(Please post your additional suggestions so they may be shared with all who are willing to participate in this "action".).....

a.  Peace. Love, Harmony, Joy, Goodwill, Prosperity and Abundance for ourselves, our families, our neighbors and finally,  for all.  Image that this has occurred already and meditate on how that would feel and enjoy the process of feeling that change already in place.   Begin within you,  then like a blanket bring in others in your family to the comfort, peace, love, and abundance that you have fully visualized for yourself.  Once that is completed and you have it firmly visualized as a reality, then begin to "NOTICE" that others around you and their families also have this wonderment within their lives.  

Statement of Congressman Ron Paul - United States House of Representatives against War on Iran - April 22, 2010

Statement on Motion to Instruct Conferees on HR 2194, Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability and Divestment Act - April 22, 2010
Statement of Congressman Ron Paul - United States House of Representatives

provided to Vatic by KALI YUGA REPORT 100424, Dick Chardet

April 24, 2010

Here is the summary of what Ron Paul said on the floor of the House of Representatives about attacking Iran, but first watch the video of his opposition to the war in Iraq and the funding and see the similarities he talks about..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7354M1QmGYQ&feature=player_embedded



Text of speech
April 23, 2010 "United States House of Representatives" -- Mr. Speaker I rise in opposition to this motion to instruct House conferees on HR 2194, the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability and Divestment Act, and I rise in strong opposition again to the underlying bill and to its Senate version as well. I object to this entire push for war on Iran, however it is disguised. Listening to the debate on the Floor on this motion and the underlying bill it feels as if we are back in 2002 all over again: the same falsehoods and distortions used to push the United States into a disastrous and unnecessary one trillion dollar war on Iraq are being trotted out again to lead us to what will likely be an even more disastrous and costly war on Iran. The parallels are astonishing.

We hear war advocates today on the Floor scare-mongering about reports that in one year Iran will have missiles that can hit the United States. Where have we heard this bombast before? Anyone remember the claims that Iraqi drones were going to fly over the United States and attack us? These “drones” ended up being pure propaganda – the UN chief weapons inspector concluded in 2004 that there was no evidence that Saddam Hussein had ever developed unpiloted drones for use on enemy targets. Of course by then the propagandists had gotten their war so the truth did not matter much.

We hear war advocates on the floor today arguing that we cannot afford to sit around and wait for Iran to detonate a nuclear weapon. Where have we heard this before? Anyone remember then-Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice’s oft-repeated quip about Iraq: that we cannot wait for the smoking gun to appear as a mushroom cloud.

We need to see all this for what it is: Propaganda to speed us to war against Iran for the benefit of special interests.

Let us remember a few important things. Iran, a signatory of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, has never been found in violation of that treaty. Iran is not capable of enriching uranium to the necessary level to manufacture nuclear weapons. According to the entire US Intelligence Community, Iran is not currently working on a nuclear weapons program. These are facts, and to point them out does not make one a supporter or fan of the Iranian regime. Those pushing war on Iran will ignore or distort these facts to serve their agenda, though, so it is important and necessary to point them out.

Some of my well-intentioned colleagues may be tempted to vote for sanctions on Iran because they view this as a way to avoid war on Iran. I will ask them whether the sanctions on Iraq satisfied those pushing for war at that time. Or whether the application of ever-stronger sanctions in fact helped war advocates make their case for war on Iraq: as each round of new sanctions failed to “work” – to change the regime – war became the only remaining regime-change option.

This legislation, whether the House or Senate version, will lead us to war on Iran. The sanctions in this bill, and the blockade of Iran necessary to fully enforce them, are in themselves acts of war according to international law. A vote for sanctions on Iran is a vote for war against Iran. I urge my colleagues in the strongest terms to turn back from this unnecessary and counterproductive march to war.

FEW AMERICANS ARE AWARE THAT FOX NEWS IS DIRECTLY TIED TO LIKUD EXTREMISTS IN ISRAEL

FEW AMERICANS ARE AWARE THAT FOX NEWS IS DIRECTLY TIED TO LIKUD EXTREMISTS IN ISRAEL

ISRAEL’S PROPAGANDA MACHINE, WAGING WAR AGAINST ISRAELI’S “ALLIES”

By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor Veterens Today

In 1898, America went to war against Spain based only in misdirection by news organizations tied to the sugar industry. Cuba sunk into slavery and dictatorship, eventually becoming a 50 year enemy of America and the Philippine people immediately began a large scale national insurrection against American rule. “Waterboarding,” our current popular method of “non-torture torture” was invented during the Philippine insurrection to question “terror suspects.” Our history books report none of this, of course.

Newspapers learned that if real news didn’t serve the powerful financial interests that media owners have always been partnered with, they simply could invent their own news. Today’s stories about Iran’s nuclear ICBM threat against the United States, reported by Fox News, is outlandish, even as “yellow journalism” goes.

Frank Luther Mott (1941) defines yellow journalism as:

"scare headlines in huge print, often of minor news  lavish use of pictures, or imaginary drawings use of faked interviews, misleading headlines, pseudo-science, and a parade of false learning from so-called experts emphasis on full-color Sunday supplements, usually with comic strips (which is now normal in the U.S.) dramatic sympathy with the “underdog” against the system."

Apply this to television and you get Fox News.  Apply this to a nation, and you get the Israeli version of their own history and today’s world events.

ALERT: Polish President was alive after the crash and was shot.

Polish President was alive after the crash and was shot.
by Vatic Master
April 23, 2010

PLEASE SPREAD FAR AND WIDE SINCE THIS IS THE FIRST TIME SOMEONE HAS IDENTIFIED THAT THE PRESIDENT WAS ALIVE AFTER THE CRASH based on the video. I now understand why they killed the videogragher since the video was already out there, It did not make sense to me at the time, why they killed him, but the fact that the President can be heard was not yet made clear and the videographer being killed so quickly prevented that fact from coming out early on.

See article about the murder of the videographer and someone elses translation of the video which has been corrected by this translation that I trust implicitly since this person did not believe there was a murder until after he translated the video. He is also in a field that requires very precise and perfectionistic work, and thus this skill carries over to this translation as evidenced by his precise translation.
http://vaticproject.blogspot.com/2010/04/alert-cameraman-filming-crash-of-polish.html

He does show a translation from someone saying it was the Polish President and he was alive and they shot him and someone says "Oh, my God, its the President".   See below in the english translation.

Here is what I received from my trusted source....and his ties to Poland are still strong.  I trust him and this translation since he is a very perfectionistic person in his field.  Here is his response to me:       
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Below is a link to the main website of an old Polish association (society) which has been a thorn in the side of many Russian governments and of other Russian "patriots". They call themselves The Association of Siberics, or similar (as opposed to Siberians, who live in, or are from, Siberia). Their mission is to keep alive the memory of Russian offenses against Poland, to tend Polish graves associated with such offenses, and so on. Their website is in Polish only.

http://zwiazeksybirakow.strefa.pl/  (its important because it was mentioned twice in the video translation below)

Not all the victims were in Siberia, but the association seems to be happy to bring all the victims under its umbrella.

At least one person aboard the plane reportedly belonged to this order. However, the overall tone of the flight was de facto in support of this order's agenda, to broadcast the memory of past Russian mistreatment of Poland. We can assume this, because the official Katyn commemorative ceremony had already been held earlier, with due decorum, in the presence of the Prime Minister of Poland, the relatively moderate Mr. Tusk. So this flight appeared designed to rub the faces of Russian "patriots" in the mud an unnecessary second time, with a full planeload of "patriots" from Poland, the entourage of Mr. Kaczynski. This resembled a veritable planeload of honorary Siberics.

I have been told that, in the past, Poland has not been shy about dealing out some grief of its own in the direction of its fellow "People of the Word" to the east. Perhaps this time also, poking the bear with a sharp stick may not have been as innocent as it seems. If the plane lands you win, if it falls you also win. Either way, there are eager cameras at the ready. How does one think Poland has managed to survive in its little green vale of death since the dawn of the age? Bless the patriots, save us all from the "patriots" and grant us the way to tell them apart.

Below is a transcript, from the Web, of things possibly to be heard in the infamous original video. I did not make this transcript, but it does seem interesting. Some parts can be easily made out, especially the telling phrase, "Ni chuja Sybir" (nee-hooyah-sibeer). In Russian this phrase might be taken to mean something like "No quarter, Siberic," but using very rude wording. I have attempted a translation of the transcript below, adding one or two of my own clarifications as well, which are in curly {} brackets.

Hope this sincere spin is credible. Good reading. (based on video clock as a tracking for the sounds and translation that you can verify yourself. The actual polish and russian words are also listed below the english translation so you can match them by the time on the video showing.)

ENGLISH TRANSLATION (Polish and Russian below this one) (Note time at :53 seconds where they mention the President's voice which means he is alive at that point)

00:12 One can hear in Polish in an assertive tone, "Calm down."

00:16 {In Polish,} "Look him in the eyes."

00:21 Once again, but this time in a more pleading tone, {in Polish,} "Calm down."

00:23 The sound of a pistol being loaded.

00:23 An empty {dull?} whack, as if an impact (the shot of a pistol with a silencer) and afterwards likely, "ow."

00:27 {In Polish,} "Ma'am, do/do not......(later unintelligible)........the Kaczynskis/of the Kaczynskis."

00:29 In Polish, "You're going" (That was a sign to turn on the signal, a siren, and mute the shots. Then in Russian through a radio, "Zyob," because immediately the sound of the siren is heard.) {Possibly "Zyob" might sound like a garbled or colloquial form of "It's done" or "It's happening." Could the siren merely be a passing train? If so, perhaps they knew when it was due to come.}

00:31 Something unclearly in Russian, "Come on."

00:47 In Russian, "Give it over here, skank." {A "playful" rhyming phrase, possibly spoken teasingly to a helper with a gun, or possibly spoken insultingly to one or more intended victims.}

00:50 {In Russian,} "Be beating down {killing} over here."

00:51 In Polish, "God, my God." {Or, "God mine, God."}

00:53 Now may God forgive me for this, but it's the President's voice {in Polish,} "What's this??" (Someone laughed.) {I suppose one would have to electronically analyze the recording to verify whose voice this is. In any case, it is likely an intended victim.}

00:53 {In Russian,} "Shoot."

00:55 The loading of a weapon can be heard.

00:57 A shot.

01:00 The author of the film {in Russian}, "No quarter, Siberic." {Rude wording in a Russian accent. Possibly sincere, but more likely only for the benefit of the nearby official seen a little later in the film guarding against closer approach to the action.}

01:06 A shot.

01:07 Laughter.

01:13 {In Polish,} "I will give it to you, you pricks fu {fu.....pricks}..........." (break in the sound, a shot is heard)

01:22 A shot

01:23 A grandfather {old man,} {in Russian,} "And where are you coming in here........ {snooping} around?" {Probably not said by some old man, but rather by the nearby official, mentioned above at 01:00. He might naturally have muttered this to the author of the film as the author passed by him.}

01:23 The author of the film, "No quarter, myself." {This is a blatant misquotation. The author of the film can clearly be heard to say "No quarter, Siberic," like he said the first time. Again, he probably only repeated it for the benefit of the official he just passed.}

ACTUAL POLISH & RUSSIAN TRANSLATION
00:12 słychac po polsku stanowczym tonem"uspokój sie" ;

00:16 "patrz mu w oczy"

00:21 jeden jeszcze raz tym razem bardzie proszacym tonem "uspokój sie"

00:23 odgłos przeładowywanego pistoletu

"The CIA Hit List": Muslim Men to be Murdered as "Threats to the US"

Vatic Note:   Similar to the Patriot Act, it was never for muslim terrorists, it was alway for Americans.  It never mattered your faith or religion.  They were murdering many from other countries without batting an eyelash, so what is the difference?  He was an American and that was the problem.  The big canard they had to get around was the brutal act of killing an American with the "due process" amendment standing in their way.   They did it and we didn't even squeal, why?  Because we believe them that its only for muslims???   I don't believe them, its a set up just like Bush set everything up (Patriot Act)  for Obama to bring it down.   This would be the final Hitlarian act against our citizens (gestapo gardens) .   What surprised me is that Global Research doesn't see that?  Either I am brilliant or they are deflecting us from that fact with this article focusing on one person who is muslim rather than on the very broad implications of this decision by Obama.  The article does talk about previous murders in other countries but not a word about the 89 dead microbiologists since 9-11,  the politicos that have been killed, like Carnahan,  Wellstone,  JFK Jr.who was going to run for Hillary's senate seat and of course Mossad couldn't have that now could they?  So, why are these not mentioned when all those deaths were severely under a major cloud and no one in governemnt would investigate them?  What about Cheneys death squad that was never dismantled consisting of CIA and Mossad operatives.    Are they operating today under Rahm Emmanual, the IDF officer Chief of STaff?  Did Obama's act now clear them of any responsibility for any of these more recent deaths of reporters like Webb, or the others I mentioned?   This is a perversion that seriously needs to be addressed. 

Against the Killing of Anwar al-Aulaqi

"You delight in laying down laws
Yet you delight more in breaking them",   Khalil Gibran

First

"The CIA Hit List" is a media term for selected Muslim men to be murdered as threats to the United States. As President, Bush used the phrase for his list of "terrorist" suspects when the policy was first made public mid-December 2002. Names on the “hit list” surface, then recede so it is hard to be sure who is current. (1)

The Bush announcement, aware of prohibitions against assassinations in the executive orders of former presidents, designated the suspects as "enemy combatants" to avoid a direct confrontation with the laws of war (LOW) aka laws of armed conflicts (LOAC), which are binding on the U.S.(2). Media reports of Dennis Blair, the Director of National Intelligence, in testimony to the House Intelligence Committee February 3, 2010, make no mention of "enemy combatants" when he reserves the right to include American citizens as targets for murder.(3) Then on April 6, 2010 a spokesman for the intelligence community announced that Anwar al-Aulaqi, a Muslim cleric and American citizen is added to the CIA hit list.(4) The imam is known for his statements of faith on the internet. Because he is an American citizen Presidential approval was required for the death command. But more importantly, al-Aulaqi is a civilian.

To quote the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights,(5) signed and ratified by the U.S. and now part of the Laws of War,(6)

"In countries which have not abolished the death penalty, sentence of death may be imposed only for the most serious crimes in accordance with the law in force at the time of the commission of the crime and not contrary to the provisions of the present Covenant and to the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. This penalty can only be carried out pursuant to a final judgement rendered by a competent court.

"When deprivation of life constitutes the crime of genocide, it is understood that nothing in this article shall authorize any State Party to the present Covenant to derogate in any way from any obligation assumed under the provisions of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide." (ICCR, Part III Article 6, #2, & 3).

Firm Run by Ex-Israeli Special Forces Soldier Wants US Security Contracts in Jerusalem, Iraq, Afghanistan

Vatic Note:  What this means in reality, is, these "for pay" mercenaries will be loyal to whoever pays them, and in this case an Israeli rather than the US gov.   Given our past history with Israel and all the bogus terrorist attacks against us, I find it either naive or dangerous for Obama to have allowed this privatizing of our military.   If that is the case then domestic Militia should be valid and acceptable since there is more evidence of loyalty to America and its interests than there is for private mercenaries.   Just another something we should be paying more attention than we do.

Firm Run by Ex-Israeli Special Forces Soldier Wants US Security Contracts in Jerusalem, Iraq, Afghanistan

As the Obama Administration continues the military privatization agenda, a CIA-connected firm and an Israeli-run company named Instinctive Shooting International are looking to cash in


By Jeremy Scahill

The Obama administration has continued the Bush-era reliance on private contractors to sustain the US occupation of Iraq and the US operations in Afghanistan. In Afghanistan, Obama has surpassed Bush’s reliance on contractors with current contractor levels surpassing 100,000 Defense Department contractors deployed. In Iraq, Obama has maintained the long-standing ratio of one contractor to every US soldier.

General Stanley McChrystal, the US commander in Afghanistan/Pakistan, said recently that he believes the US has “created in ourselves a dependency on contractors that is greater than it ought to be.” He added: “I think it doesn’t save money. I actually think it would be better to reduce the number of contractors involved, increase the number of military if necessary.”

Despite such proclamations, the pattern of dependence on contractors is continuing unabated—and not just within the Department of Defense.

This week the US State Department posted a solicitation for armed private security contractors to deploy in “critical or higher than critical threat areas” globally under its Worldwide Protective Services program. Among the firms that have held these contracts are Blackwater, DynCorp (VN: the slave sex and labor pimps), Triple Canopy and Armor Group. ArmorGroup was exposed last year by whistleblowers for a range of misconduct at the US embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan. Among the actions revealed by the Project on Government Oversight were hazing rituals involving nudity and heavy drinking that at times included personnel urinating on each other. The whistleblowers alleged that ArmorGroup personnel created a general atmosphere of fear and intimidation. Last December, following POGO’s revelations, the State Department said it was phasing out ArmorGroup.

Blagojevich Motion: Redacted Material Claims Obama Pushed Valerie Jarrett For Senate, Took Money From Tony Rezko

Blagojevich Motion: Redacted Material Claims Obama Pushed Valerie Jarrett For Senate, Took Money From Tony Rezko

Huffington Post     -     Article provided to Vatic by Carolyn Rose Goyda, Missouri
Will Guzzardi First Posted: 04-22-10 02:39 PM

As a part of the ongoing circus that is Rod Blagojevich's corruption trial,defense attorneys for the indicted former governor of Illinois moved to subpoena President Barack Obama on Thursday to testify in his defense.

Many portions of the document were redacted, but HuffPost Chicago has extracted the redacted portions of the document and reconstructed the full subpoena.

One bombshell accusation included in a blacked-out portion of the document: that the Obama campaign accepted "a large sum of cash" from convicted felon and government witness Tony Rezko.

The document also alleges that President Obama suggested Valerie Jarrett get his old seat, and that he contacted labor union officials about lobbying the Governor's office on her behalf.

If true, this could contradict the President's statement that he was "confident that no representatives of mine would have any part of any deals related to this seat." Depending on the meaning of the word "deals."

The Blagojevich trial centers on charges that the ex-governor attempted to sell the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Barack Obama. While, in statements like the one above, Obama has distanced himself from the scandal, the Blagojevich motion suggests he was somewhat involved in choosing his replacement.From the document (Senate Candidate B here is Valerie Jarrett):

[An unnamed labor union president] spoke to labor union official on November 3, 2008 who received a phone message from Obama that evening. After labor union official listened to the message labor union official told labor union president "I'm the one". Labor union president took that to mean that labor union official was to be the one to deliver the message on behalf of Obama that Senate Candidate B was his pick.

[O]n November, 4 2008, Senate Candidate B spoke with labor union official about the Senate seat. Labor union official said he spoke to Obama. Labor union official said he was going to meet with Blagojevich and said "he was going to push Blagojevich hard on this.

Rahm Emanuel also appears in the document, accused of guiding Blagojevich's Chief of Staff John Harris regarding possible choices for the Senate seat.

A word on the cast of characters: Senate Candidate A is Jesse Jackson, Jr., a Chicago congressman. Senate Candidate D is Emil Jones, former President of the Illinois Senate and a powerful figure in state politics who propelled young Barack Obama's political career. Senate Candidate E is Cheryle Jackson, former president of the Chicago Urban League who finished 3rd in the 2010 primary for the same Senate seat.

From the document:

President's Chief of Staff told the FBI that "he could not say where but somewhere it was communicated to him that" Senate Candidate A was a suggested candidate viewed as one of the four "right" candidates "by the Obama transition team."

...On December 8, 2008, John Harris' secretary's call log noted President's Chief of Staff called at 10:47 am and wrote "needs to talk to you asap" (Harris 302, February 20, 2009). President's Chief of Staff told the FBI that he had a conversation discussing the Senate seat with Obama on December 7, 2008 in Obama's car. President's Chief of Staff told the FBI "Obama expressed concern about Senate Candidate D being appointed as Senator. ... [President's Chief of Staff] thought he suggested Senate Candidate E.

Finally, the redacted portions of the subpoena allege that Tony Rezko funneled large amounts of cash to the Obama campaign. The document claims to quote a letter tendered by the government in a private hearing, which allegedly reads:

[Rezko] engaged in election law violations by personally contributing a large sum of cash to the campaign of a public official who is not Rod Blagojevich. ... Further, the public official denies being aware of cash contributions to his campaign by Rezko or others and denies having conversations with Rezko related to cash contributions. ... Rezko has also stated in interviews with the government that he believed he transmitted a quid pro quo offer from a lobbyist to the public official ... but that the public official rejected the offer.

A footnote to this allegation reads: "The defense has a good faith belief that this public official is Barack Obama," and cites this Chicago Sun-Times article, suggesting that it coincides with elements of Rezko's claims.

Rezko, a Chicago real estate developer, was convicted of sixteen counts of fraud and corruption relating to a multimillion-dollar extortion scheme. The case involved Rezko using his influence with Blagojevich, to whom he'd donated hundreds of thousands of dollars, to demand kickbacks from businesses with state contracts.

The Blagojevich trial is set to begin June 3.

"Lehman’s failure is a story in large part of fraud"

Vatic Note:  At least someone in the regulatory dept has some semblance of integrity.  Read his testimony, but Remember, Lehman Brothers is England and Rothschild. So, I doubt congress will do anything about it given who controls those key committees.   Also remember, the FBI was investigating Lehman Bros,  Bernanke, and Paulson for criminal fraud they committed the night before they declared insolvency by taking $385 million dollars in funds overnight without telling the German bank that they were declaring insolvency the next day.   That is criminal fraud and they kept the money and put the debt into the bailout.   The FBI was investigating that at the time and said so to the press, when Bush/Paulson quashed the investigation.   UNLESS ITS CRIMINAL then its just a cover up and right now because of the elections everyone is saying what we want to hear but nobody is truly doing anything.  Unless some of these big whigs end up in jail for real, don't believe a stinking word any of them says.   Only vote for candidates supported by either Ron Paul on the right or Dennis Kucinich or Cynthia McKinney on the left, otherwise, vote independant or third party or we will get more of the same or worse since then there are two years left to finish us off for good and forever.  

Title:  "Lehman’s failure is a story in large part of fraud"

                   Black's Knockout Testimony

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article25284.htm

By Mike Whitney

April 21, 2010 "Information Clearing House" --

On Tuesday, Former regulator William Black appeared before the House Committee on Financial Services and beat the living-tar out of Lehman CEO Dick Fuld for 8 full minutes. It was a moment of sheer, unalloyed pleasure that will be savored for a long time to come.

"Lehman’s failure is a story in large part of fraud," Black roared. "Lehman was the leading purveyor of liars’ loans in the world. For most of this decade, studies of liars’ loans show incidence of fraud of 90%. ... If you want to know why we have a global crisis, in large part it is before you."

When the camera shifted to Fuld, he looked confused. "Why is this bearded man saying these terrible things about me. I am a Wall Street banker," he mused. "Don't they know that I create jobs and allocate capital to enterprising entrepreneurs?"

Black again: "Let’s start with the repos. We have known since the Enron in 2001 that this is a common scam, in which every major bank that was approached by Enron agreed to help them deceive creditors and investors by doing these kind of transactions.....And so what happened? There was a proposal in 2004 to stop it. And the regulatory heads...killed it."

By now, Fuld was fidgeting in his chair; tugging at his collar and looking over his shoulder to see if the exits were still where he remembered them to be. "Repos, repos, repos," he thought angrily. "All these people think about is repos. We provided a service; liquidity for the markets, capital for new businesses. We make the system work. That's enough, isn't it? Who is this irritating fellow? I haven't seen him at the club, have I?" Fuld wondered if Black wore sandals and belonged to a food co-op.

Black again: "We have known for decades that these are frauds. We have known for a decade how to stop them. All of the major regulatory agencies were complicit in that statement, in destroying it. We have a self-fulfilling policy of regulatory failure because of the leadership in this era.

President Obama: Al Qaeda Is Seeking a Nuke -- and They Will Use It

Vatic Note:    FALSE FLAG ALERT?  UPDATE: 4/23/10 Based on comments section below, I just reconfirmed that the missing nukes in ND were 6 and only 5 arrived in Lousiana and nothing has been mentioned since that any one has found that 6th nuke.  No press screaming for an explanation or accounting for that 6th nuke.   So keep that in mind while comtemplatng this false flag alert.  Its important.
Lets hope this exposure stops the event from happening as it did back in Sept 2007.  Cheney had to cancel his infamous war games then.  We stopped it because we blew the socks off when the leak occurred by someone who loaded those nukes. We then verified that El Al airlines had cancelled all flights out of NY on  Friday which never happens, and reinstated the flights when Cheney cancelled his war games.   I personally called the airline because of the 9-11 warnings that Israeli citizens got working in the twin towers before the highjacking even occurred, so I took a chance and called and sure enough they were cancelled out of NY for Friday the 14th of Sept, 2007. 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
After reading the post just before this one, its beginning to look a lot like reality doesn't it?    Remember this statement by Obama on the evening of Obama's nuclear summit to reduce nukes, or at least that was what the press said the summit was about and yet after saying he was going to go for reduction, he orders nuke war games??? FEMA has scheduled nuclear war games for May, canceled the april ones in Nevada; and Europe as we speak is holding nuke war games in the "sky" and I suspect that has to do with missles and targeting. Those run through April 22, so the timing was suppose to coincide with ours. Yet, we had a Volcano which took care of the airspace problem for conducting those games through the 22nd. Now we all know this is exactly like 9-11 when we got warnings and then SURPRISE, SURPRISE, war games to go along with the warnings, OH, AND WE STILL HAVE ONE MISSING NUKE that Cheney forgot to return to ND, from the 5 missing nukes back in Sept 2007? THEY RECOVERED ALL BUT ONE. Oh, and all involved on that base in following those military orders to illegally load those nukes, are now dead. So, listen up, if this happens and they do another false flag, then its time, and I think deep down we all know it, to stop these perverts once and for all since that will be about the 6th false flag killing of Americans by our allies in about 30 years. We also proved on here that OKC was done by our gov and their foreign occupying handlers. So, people will simply have to make a serious decision.   Keep living with this or stop it.   Simple.

President Obama: Al Qaeda (CIA) Is Seeking a Nuke -- and They Will Use It 

April 11, 2010 8:15 PM

On the eve of his Nuclear Security Summit, President Obama issued a dire warning: terrorist groups are trying to obtain nuclear weapons -- and they will use it.  (VN:  Yes,  CIA/Mossad funded and controlled Al Qaeda)

“We know that organizations like al Qaeda (VN: CIA Funded AQ) are in the process of trying to secure a nuclear weapon (VN:  the one Cheney kept from the 5 missing from North Dakota) -- a weapon of mass destruction that they have no compunction at using, (VN:  CIA/Mossad use WMD all the time, HAARP comes to mind, ask Haiti)" the president said.

Appearing alongside President Zuma of South Africa before a bilateral meeting, Mr. Obama said that "if there was ever a detonation in New York City, or London, or Johannesburg, the ramifications economically, politically, and from a security perspective would be devastating.” (VN:  Sounds like a satanists wet dream, nuking children, very brave people, yes?)

Leaders from almost 50 nations are attending the two-day summit (VN:  Except Israel), aimed at shoring up efforts to obtain loose nuclear materials throughout the world so they don’t fall into the hands of terrorists or rogue nations (VN:  Too late, Israel already has them). The summit is the third event in the last week in which President Obama is trying to demonstrate a commitment to denuclearization. Last week he issued a new policy on nuclear deterrence and signed a disarmament treaty with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev.

South Africa is the only nation in the world that once had a nuclear weapons program and subsequently dismantled the weapons.   "South Africa has special standing in being a moral leader on this issue," President Obama said. (VN:  Well at least he can spell "moral")

The Nuclear Threat from Israeli Submarines (The Samson Option)

Vatic Note: Now here is something we had not thought about and we should have because its far more likely to occur than any other attack against us, given our history of that occurring against us with that nation except for a false flag, but then isn't Israel usually involved in all of those so far, along with our treasonous leaders???? Please note Alex's comments first and keep them in mind as you view these videos and read this commentary from Carol Moore on Israeli's use of blackmail and threats with their rogue nation nuclear weapons. If there is something we all need to fear, ITS ISRAEL, not Afghanistan, not Iraq, not Pakistan,  not Iran and certainly not AMERICAN PATRIOTS, in fact that may end up being our saving grace. Its ISRAEL and until today, I had no idea just how serious that possility is to drag us into that war with Iran that they want so very badly and what they are willing to do to us if they do not succeed in Iran.   NOW WE KNOW WHAT THEY DID WITH ALL THAT MILITARY MONEY WE SENT THEM AS FOREIGN AID.  Think we better stop it while we are ahead of the game???   (Thanks Alex).

The Nuclear Threat from Israeli Submarines (The Samson Option)

Please read these comments first by courtesy of Alex James in an email to his distribution list 4/22/2010

" Question: Is any country using their subs to "shadow" Israeli submarines? I would say no as the Israeli's are blatantly infiltrated into the Pentagon.

The "20 minutes" of crossing nuclear missiles as seen on the old movie "War Games" is sadly out of date. Israeli subs most likely are lying of the east and west coasts of the United States and most likely closer than the 12 mile limit. There will be no Air Raid sirens. If it goes badly for Israel when they hit Iran...........you may well join the Israeli's in the afterlife. They do not want anyone to survive if they do not."

He then provided this very enlightening video and write up which exposes the extent of their nuclear capability and intention. Please watch the first video as its important, the second if your so inclined since its more historical than contemporary. Keep in mind Israel has already proven its willingness to kill Americans for their own political purposes, so this is not out of the realm of possibility. We are truly beginning to realize who our true enemy may very well be, and its not the muslims or the nations that seat them. Pass this around as far and wide as you can, its important to expose this underbelly to the light of day.

ISRAELI NUCLEAR THREATS AND BLACKMAIL

The Samson Option Still Threatens the World

by Carol Moore, December 2009 verson

(Please LINK only; do not mirror. Content changes frequently.)The phrase the “Samson Option” is used to describe Israel’s strategy of massive nuclear retaliation against “enemy” nations should its existence as a Jewish state be jeopardized through military attack. Israeli leaders created the term in the mid-1960s, inspired by the Biblical figure Samson, who destroyed a Philistine temple, killing himself and thousands of Philistine enemies.[1][2]

Israel refuses to admit officially that it has nuclear weapons - a policy known as “nuclear ambiguity” or "nuclear opacity."[3] This despite government officials inferring repeatedly - and occasionally admitting - the fact. And despite Israeli nuclear whistle blower Mordechai Vanunu making public smuggled photographs of nuclear weapons and production equipment in the 1980s.[4] Israel now may have as many as 400 atomic and hydrogen nuclear weapons,[5][6] as well as the ability to launch them via long range missiles, submarines and aircraft.[7] It can use them in a second strike even if its military is devastated.

Originally a strategy of last resort retaliation - even if it means Israel’s annihilation - it has developed into being a nuclear bullying strategy to further Israel’s territorial goals through threats and blackmail. Israel has bullied not only Arab and Muslim nations, but the United States and Russia with its Samson Option threats. Mordechai Vanunu has alleged that Israel uses for purposes of blackmail its ability to "bombard any city all over the world, and not only those in Europe but also those in the United States."[8]

Official policy and threats

During the 1960s Israel concentrated on conventional military superiority to defend lands confiscated in the 1948 and 1967 wars - and to convince Palestinians in Israel and the occupied territories that they could not break free of it. However, in 1973's Yom Kippur War Israel was almost overwhelmed by Arab forces. Prime Minister Golda Meir authorized a nuclear alert, ordering 13 atomic bombs be prepared for missiles and aircraft. Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Simha Dinitz threatened “very serious conclusions" if there was not an immediate airlift of supplies.[9] This forced U.S. President Richard Nixon to make emergency airlifts of state of the art military supplies to Israel.[10][11]

Fearing intervention by the Soviet Union, U.S. forces went on Defense Condition (DEFCON) III alert status[12], something which could have led to full scale nuclear war in case of misinterpretation of signals or hardware or software failures. Additionally, as Seymour Hersh documents in detail in his book The Samson Option, from 1973 these weapons have been used to discourage the Soviet Union - now Russia - from intervening militarily on behalf of Arab nations.[13] Obviously an Israeli nuclear attack on Russia by the United States’ great ally Israel would result in Russia sending thousands of nuclear weapons towards the U.S. and the U.S. responding in kind.

Not surprisingly, no nation state has attempted to attack Israel since 1973. A former Israeli official justified Israel’s threats. “You Americans screwed us” in not supporting Israel in its 1956 war with Egypt. “We can still remember the smell of Auschwitz and Treblinka. Next time we’ll take all of you with us.”[14] General Moshe Dayan, a leading promoter of Israel’s nuclear program[15], has been quoted as saying “Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.”[16] Amos Rubin, an economic adviser to former Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, said "If left to its own Israel will have no choice but to fall back on a riskier defense which will endanger itself and the world at large... To enable Israel to abstain from dependence on nuclear arms calls for $2 to 3 billion per year in U.S. aid."[17]

In 1977, after a right-wing coalition under Menachen Begin took power, the Israelis began to use the Samson Option not just to deter attack but to allow Israel to “redraw the political map of the Middle East” by expanding hundreds of thousands of Israeli settlers into the West Bank and Gaza.[18] Then-Minister of Defense Ariel Sharon said things like "We are much more important than (Americans) think. We can take the middle east with us whenever we go"[19] and "Arabs may have the oil, but we have the matches."[20] He proclaimed his - and many Likud Party members' - goals of transforming Jordan into a Palestinian state and “transferring” all Palestinian refugees there.[21][22] A practice known worldwide as "ethnic cleansing."

To dissuade the Soviet Union from interfering with its plans, Prime Minister Begin immediately “gave orders to target more Soviet cities” for potential nuclear attack. Its American spy Jonathan Pollard was caught stealing such nuclear targeting information from the U.S. military in 1985.[23]

During the next 25 years Israel became more militarily adventurous, bombing Iraq’s under-construction Osirak nuclear reactor in 1981, invading Lebanon to destroy Palestinian refugee camps in 1982 and to fight Hezbollah in 2006, massively bombing civilian targets in the West Bank Jenin refugee camp in 2002 and thoughout Gaza in 2008-2009. There are conflicting reports about whether Israel went on nuclear alert and armed missiles with nuclear weapons during the 1991 Gulf War after Iraq shot conventionally armed scud missiles into it.[24][25]

In 2002, while the United States was building for the 2003 invasion of Iraq, then Prime Minister Ariel Sharon threatened that if Israel was attacked “Israel will react. Is it clear?”[26] Israeli defense analyst Zeev Schiff explained: “Israel could respond with a nuclear retaliation that would eradicate Iraq as a country.” It is believed President Bush gave Sharon the green-light to attack Baghdad in retaliation, including with nuclear weapons, but only if attacks came before the American military invasion.[27]

Former Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres has admitted that nuclear weapons are used by Israel for “compellent purposes” - i.e., forcing others to accept Israeli political demands.[28] In 1998 Peres was quoted as saying, "We have built a nuclear option, not in order to have a Hiroshima, but to have an Oslo," referring to imposing a settlement on the Palestinians.[29]

In her book Israel’s Sacred Terrorism Livia Rokach documented how Israelis have used religion to justify paramilitary and state terrorism to create and maintain a Jewish State.[30] Two other Israeli retaliation strategies are the popularized phrase “Wrath of God,” the alleged Israeli assassination of those it held responsible for the 1972 killings of Israeli athletes during the Munich Olympics[31], and the “Dahiya doctrine” of destruction of civilian areas to punish Palestinians for supporting their leaders.[32]

Israeli Israel Shahak wrote in 1997: "Israel clearly prepares itself to seek overtly a hegemony over the entire Middle East...without hesitating to use for the purpose all means available, including nuclear ones."[33] Zeev Schiff opined in 1998 that "Off-the-cuff Israeli nuclear threats have become a problem."[34] In 2003 David Hirst noted that “The threatening of wild, irrational violence, in response to political pressure, has been an Israeli impulse from the very earliest days” and called Israel a candidate for “the role of 'nuclear-crazy' state.”[35] Noam Chomsky said of the Samson Option “the craziness of the state is not because the people are insane. Once you pick a policy of choosing expansion over security, that's what you end up getting stuck with.”[36] Efraim Karsh calls the Samson Option the “rationality of pretended irrationality,” but warns that seeming too irrational could encourage other nations to attack Israel in their own defense.[37]

Samson Option Supporters

Two Israel supporters are frequently quoted for their explicit support of the Samson Option. Martin Van Creveld, a professor of military history at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, has been quoted as saying: "Most European capitals are targets for our air force....We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under."[38]

In 2002 the Los Angeles Times, published an opinion piece by Louisiana State University professor David Perlmutter in which he wrote: "What would serve the Jew-hating world better in repayment for thousands of years of massacres but a Nuclear Winter. Or invite all those tut-tutting European statesmen and peace activists to join us in the ovens? For the first time in history, a people facing extermination while the world either cackles or looks away--unlike the Armenians, Tibetans, World War II European Jews or Rwandans--have the power to destroy the world. The ultimate justice?"[39]

Two influential Israel supporters advocate more active use of the Samson Option threat. Louis René Beres, a professor of Political Science at Purdue University and an Ariel Sharon advisor, recommends Israel use the Samson Option threat to support conventional preemptive attacks against enemy nuclear and non-nuclear assets, discouraging conventional retaliation.[40] Jerome Corsi, a Harvard Ph.D. in political science and author of two books encouraging Israel to use nuclear weapons[41], writes that “Israel's Samson Option” could be “a preemptive strike against Iran.”[42]

The Israelis also are egged on in its nuclear threats by "Christian Zionists" like Hal Lindsay who believe Israel must expand its control of territory to its Biblical borders in order to bring about Armageddon and the return of Jesus Christ.[43] Some suspect that former President George W. Bush holds such beliefs,[44] especially after his November 2007 statement "If you want to see World War Three, you know, a way to do that is to attack Israel with a nuclear weapon."[45]

Israeli Threats Against Iran

Israel’s threats to use nuclear weapons, including preemptively, have increased greatly since the revelation in 2002 that Iran was building uranium enrichment facilities. That year Prime Minister Ariel Sharon demanded that the international community target Iran as soon as it was finished dealing with Iraq.[46]

Unlike Israel, Iran has accepted supervision of its nuclear program under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. Iran claims its program is only for production of nuclear power as oil becomes more scarce and expensive, and not for nuclear weapons. However, Israel opposes any challenge to its nuclear hegemony since not only would it be less able to use its nuclear threat to keep confiscated lands, but fear of Iran actually might cause citizens to leave Israel and investment to dry up.[47][48] Israel also must worry about other “enemy” Arab nations which already are seeking or soon may seek nuclear energy.[49]

In 2004 Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz said that Israel would consider "all options" to prevent Iran from producing nuclear weapons.[50] Rumors and warnings of an impending Israeli attack on Iran’s facilities, including possibly with nuclear weapons, have circulated repeatedly since that time.[51][52]

Meanwhile, Israel still considers Russia a target because of its technical assistance to Iran’s nuclear program and its continued arms sales to Iran and other “enemy” nations.[53] [54][55] In 2007 Israeli officials warned Russia: "We hope they understand that this is a threat that could come back to them as well."[56]

In 2005 George Bush admitted that the U.S. would support an Israeli attack on Iran.[57] Soon after his election President Barak Obama seemed to accept the inevitability of an Iranian nuclear bomb.[58] However, in early 2009 Likud Party hawk Benjamin Netanyahu was elected Israeli Prime Minister. Netanyahu already had threatened that Israel would attack Iran to stop its nuclear program if Obama did not do so.[59] Considering Iran’s threats to retaliate, this easily could lead to a “Samson Option” scenario.[60][61] After May[62] and September meetings with Netanyahu in 2009, Obama threatened Iran with attack if it did not “come clean about” and curb its nuclear program.[63][64] This statement came a day after Netanyahus’ speech to the United Nations where he invoked the memory of Auschwitz and family members slain by Nazis.[65] Obama also has suffered constant pressure to take a more belligerent stand against Iran from neoconservatives and the “Israel lobby.”[66][67][68][69]

Too few peace or political activists, left or right, are willing to challenge Israel’s Samson Option threats or even to make a nuclear free Middle East a central demand.[70] Until military and political leaders, as well as activists, are willing to change U.S. policy of defacto support for Israel’s Samson Option the whole world remains a potential victim of this horrific strategy.
