Destroying Educational Institutions or Using Them for Military Purposes Is a War Crime

Destroying Educational Institutions or Using Them for Military Purposes Is a War Crime

"The Education system in Iraq, prior to 1991, was one of the best in the region; with over 100% Gross Enrollment Rate for primary schooling and high levels of literacy, both of men and women. The Higher Education, especially the scientific and technological institutions, were of an international standard, staffed by high quality personnel." (UNESCO Fact Sheet, March 28, 2003)[1].

As a result of the ongoing US Occupation of Iraq, today Iraq is more illiterate than it was five or 25 years ago because the US administration and the US forces occupying Iraq began to root and destroy every aspect of Iraq's education.

The Iraqi educational system was the target of US military action because education is the backbone of any society. Without an efficient education system, no society can function, wrote Ghali Hassan in May 2005.[2] Facts have proven him right. This is also one of the conclusions of the book "Cultural Cleansing in Iraq."[3]

Can Anyone Pacify the World's Number One Narco-State?

Bruecke Notes: This provides insight into why the war in Afghanistan will not be won militarily and that attempting to do so will only increase drug trafficking. I particularly like the solution offered: "renew this ancient, arid land by replanting its orchards, replenishing its flocks, and rebuilding the irrigation systems ruined in decades of war."


Can Anyone Pacify the World's Number One Narco-State?

In ways that have escaped most observers, the Obama administration is now trapped in an endless cycle of drugs and death in Afghanistan from which there is neither an easy end nor an obvious exit.

After a year of cautious debate and costly deployments, President Obama finally launched his new Afghan war strategy at 2:40 am on February 13, 2010, in a remote market town called Marja in southern Afghanistan's Helmand Province. As a wave of helicopters descended on Marja's outskirts spitting up clouds of dust, hundreds of U.S. Marines dashed through fields sprouting opium poppies toward the town's mud-walled compounds.

After a week of fighting, U.S. war commander General Stanley A. McChrystal choppered into town with Afghanistan's vice-president and Helmand's provincial governor. Their mission: a media roll-out for the general's new-look counterinsurgency strategy based on bringing government to remote villages just like Marja.

At a carefully staged meet-and-greet with some 200 villagers, however, the vice-president and provincial governor faced some unexpected, unscripted anger. "If they come with tractors," one Afghani widow announced to a chorus of supportive shouts from her fellow farmers, "they will have to roll over me and kill me before they can kill my poppy."

Our Government Is Planning to Stay at War for the Next 80 Years -- Anyone Got a Problem with That?

Our Government Is Planning to Stay at War for the Next 80 Years -- Anyone Got a Problem with That?

By Tom Hayden

March 31, 2010

Without public debate and without congressional hearings, a segment of the Pentagon and fellow travelers have embraced a doctrine known as the Long War, which projects an "arc of instability" caused by insurgent groups from Europe to South Asia that will last between 50 and 80 years. According to one of its architects, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan are just "small wars in the midst of a big one."

Consider the audacity of such an idea. An 80-year undeclared war would entangle 20 future presidential terms stretching far into the future of voters not yet born. The American death toll in Iraq and Afghanistan now approaches 5,000, with the number of wounded a multiple many times greater. Including the American dead from 9/11, that's 8,000 dead so far in the first decade of the Long War. And if the American armed forces are stretched thin today, try to conceive of seven more decades of combat.

Bad chemistry: The poison in the plastic that surrounds us

Vatic Note:   Keep depopulation we have written about or shown articles on here, along with Eugenics, and when you start to put all this together, its apparent these life threatening issues are not a coincidence at that many levels and areas of industry.   Keep in mind these people meet globally in secret meetins such as Davos, Trilateral commission,  The Bildebergs, etc and we have no idea what they plan or decide behind those closed doors.   Also keep in mind, its these wealth robber barons that have funded Eugenics and depopulation programs along with sterilization since the 20's.   If intentional then this is not only murder for those who die from this but attempted murder for those living in the hell their lives have become.  There is nothing more perverse than using chemical poisoning to off a population.

In August 1998 in a laboratory at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, geneticist Patricia Hunt was researching the impact of ageing on chromosomes, the bundles of DNA and protein in cells. It was highly technical work, and to the outside world of no great interest. Then she noticed something strange happening to the test mice; something so peculiar and potentially so important that it has been widely reported since. She spotted malformed cells in the control group of mice – the animals used for comparison with the ones that undergo experiments. No experiments had been performed on these mice, yet perplexingly they were showing an "extraordinary increase" in cell failure.


While examining test tubes and other equipment to try to ascertain what might have caused this cell failure, Dr Hunt discovered cracks and bubbles in the plastic of the rodents' cages, caused by the use of an unusually strong detergent. As a result, a chemical had leached out of the plastic, and this, Hunt concluded, was behind the rodents' malformations, which were so striking that Dr Hunt abandoned her original experiment and studied the control mice, instead. The chemical Hunt had identified was Bisphenol A, or BPA, a hormonal substance and, even when injected at low levels into the mice, it reduced the mice's "genetic quality".

"What have lab mice or Bisphenol A got to do with me?" you might ask. The answer is that BPA is one of the commonest chemicals in the world. Since it was discovered that it toughened plastic in the 1950s, the chemical has become embedded in the stuff of everyday life. Every time you make a call on a mobile phone or tap something into a computer, handle a compact disc or sports equipment, put on sunglasses or paint your nails, drink water from your tap or run your tongue against a tooth filling, you may be in contact with BPA.

Federal Judge Finds N.S.A. Wiretapping Program Illegal

Title:   Federal Judge Finds N.S.A. Wiretapping Program Illegal

WASHINGTON — A federal judge ruled Wednesday that the National Security Agency’s program of surveillance without warrants was illegal, rejecting the Obama administration’s effort to keep shrouded in secrecy one of the most disputed counterterrorism policies of former President George W. Bush.

In a 45-page opinion, Judge Vaughn R. Walker ruled that the government had violated a 1978 federal statute requiring court approval for domestic surveillance when it intercepted phone calls of Al Haramain, a now-defunct Islamic charity in Oregon, and of two lawyers representing it in 2004. Declaring that the plaintiffs had been “subjected to unlawful surveillance,” the judge said the government was liable to pay them damages.

The ruling delivered a blow to the Bush administration’s claims that its surveillance program, which Mr. Bush secretly authorized shortly after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, was lawful. Under the program, the National Security Agency monitored Americans’ international e-mail messages and phone calls without court approval, even though the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA, required warrants.

The Justice Department said it was reviewing the decision and had made no decision about whether to appeal.

The ruling by Judge Walker, the chief judge of the Federal District Court in San Francisco, rejected the Justice Department’s claim — first asserted by the Bush administration and continued under President Obama — that the charity’s lawsuit should be dismissed without a ruling on the merits because allowing it to go forward could reveal state secrets.

The judge characterized that expansive use of the so-called state-secrets privilege as amounting to “unfettered executive-branch discretion” that had “obvious potential for governmental abuse and overreaching.”

That position, he said, would enable government officials to flout the warrant law, even though Congress had enacted it “specifically to rein in and create a judicial check for executive-branch abuses of surveillance authority.”

Open Letter to Berkeley Students on their Historic Israeli Divestment Bill

On March 18, continuing a long tradition of pioneering human rights campaigns, the Senate of the Associated Students of the University of California, Berkeley (ASUC) passed "A Bill In Support of UC DIVESTMENT FROM WAR CRIMES." The historic bill resolves to divest ASUC's assets from two American companies, General Electric and United Technologies, that are "materially and militarily supporting the Israeli government's occupation of the Palestinian territories"—and to advocate that the UC, with about $135 million invested in companies that profit from Israel’s illegal actions in the Occupied Territories, follow suit.


Although the bill passed by a vote of 16-4 after a packed and intense debate, the President of the Senate vetoed the bill six days later. The Senate is expected to reconsider the bill soon; groups such as Jewish Voice for Peace are asking supporters of the bill to send letters to the Senators, who can overturn the veto with only 14 votes.

Here is the letter I just sent:

Dear members of the ASUC Senate,

I am writing to urge you to reaffirm Senate Bill 118A, despite the recent presidential veto.

It comes as no surprise that you are under intense pressure to reverse your historic and democratic decision to divest from two companies that profit from Israel's occupation of Palestinian territory. When a school with a deserved reputation for academic excellence and moral leadership takes such a bold position, it threatens to inspire others to take their own stands.

Are Americans Too Broken by Corporate Power to Resist?

Title: Are Americans Too Broken by Corporate Power to Resist?
By  Joan Brunwasser  and Bruce E. Levine
Date: March 23, 2010

We need to take a look at what forces in American society are preventing people from being able to resist tyranny and dehumanization.

AlterNet Editor's Note: The following is the transcript of a recent interview with Bruce E. Levine by OpEd News' Joan Brunwasser. Levine is a clinical psychologist and author of Surviving America’s Depression Epidemic: How to Find Morale, Energy, and Community in a World Gone Crazy (Chelsea Green Publishing, 2007).

Joan Brunwasser: Back in December, you wrote 'Are Americans a Broken People? Why We've Stopped Fighting Back Against the Forces of Oppression.' Could you tell our readers about your theory?

Bruce E. Levine: There are times when human beings can become so broken that truths of how they are being victimized do not set them free. This is certainly the case for many victims of parental and spousal abuse. They are not helped by people explaining to them that they are being battered, exploited, uncared about and disrespected. They know it already and somebody pointing it out is not helpful.

So, it seems to me that it is also possible that human beings can become so broken by the abuse of the corporate elite that they also are no longer set free by truth.

While certainly the corporate-controlled mainstream media does not report many important truths, the majority of the American people do know enough to oppose the war in Afghanistan, but they do almost nothing in response to recent troop surges.

Population reduction enthusiast says “a few people with authority” should run the planet

Vatic Note:   What we need to understand here, is that globalization will only work for the elite IF they can get the population down to where they can control it, with such few numbers as they have,  to make us be the slaves they need and the carbon tax was the last tax after the horrific monthly fee on the health care, to complete that slavery.  Think about it, an $800 per mo, insurance premium, forced, and a $500 per month carbon tax would force a minimum of two jobs probably for both parents, then who raises the kids???  The state does.   Your imagination can take over from there.  Between the drugs in school to keep them sedated and the indoctrination while on those drugs,  it would take care of their future problems where they would not need the force to keep them in line.   That is the future they have planned for your children.  Nice huh?   I put up links here a while back on the Gates, and Rockefellers and Rothschilds meetings and funding of Eugenics since 1922 with Rockefeller and Gates is the new comer on the block.  Please rent the movie, "The Soldier" with Kurt Russell and see what that will mean for your children.

A renowned environmentalist, known for his advocacy of population reduction as a means of offsetting climate change, has called for “a more authoritative world” where freedom comes second to tackling what he sees as the devastating effects of global warming.

Futurist James Lovelock, tells the London Guardian [2]that he believes “It may be necessary to put democracy on hold for a while,” in order to save humanity.

“We need a more authoritative world.” Lovelock states.

“We’ve become a sort of cheeky, egalitarian world where everyone can have their say. It’s all very well, but there are certain circumstances – a war is a typical example – where you can’t do that.” the 90 year old proponent of the Gaia hypothesis [3] adds.

“You’ve got to have a few people with authority who you trust who are running it. And they should be very accountable too, of course.”

“But it can’t happen in a modern democracy. This is one of the problems. What’s the alternative to democracy? There isn’t one. But even the best democracies agree that when a major war approaches, democracy must be put on hold for the time being. I have a feeling that climate change may be an issue as severe as a war. It may be necessary to put democracy on hold for a while.” Lovelock concludes.

Treason, Betrayal and Deceit: 9/11 and Beyond
By Alan Sabrosky.
September 10, 2009 "
Information Clearing House' --Thy Weapon of War

The attacks on September 11, 2001 have been a defining moment for America. The political and psychological impact on Americans of a concerted and visible attack in America was enormous -- indeed, it is an interesting "coincidence" that the attacks occurred on the one day of the year whose mention reinforces a public sense here of danger and emergency: 9-1-1.

A significant development in the 1990s was the formation of the neo-conservative think tank known as PNAC (Project for a New American Century), whose members prepared position papers for the Israeli government and for a future US Administration sharing their views. That happened in 2000 with the election of George W. Bush, and a contemporary writer summarized the tip of the neo-conservative iceberg in his first Administration this way:

Pentagon Sees a Threat From Online Muckrakers

Pentagon Sees a Threat From Online Muckrakers

To the list of the enemies threatening the security of the United States, the Pentagon has added WikiLeaks.org, a tiny online source of information and documents that governments and corporations around the world would prefer to keep secret.


The Pentagon assessed the danger WikiLeaks.org posed to the Army in a report marked “unauthorized disclosure subject to criminal sanctions.” It concluded that “WikiLeaks.org represents a potential force protection, counterintelligence, OPSEC and INFOSEC threat to the U.S. Army” — or, in plain English, a threat to Army operations and information.


WikiLeaks, true to its mission to publish materials that expose secrets of all kinds, published the 2008 Pentagon report about itself on Monday.

Lt. Col. Lee Packnett, an Army spokesman, confirmed that the report was real. Julian Assange, the editor of WikiLeaks, said the concerns the report raised were hypothetical.

“It did not point to anything that has actually happened as a result of the release,” Mr. Assange said. “It contains the analyst’s best guesses as to how the information could be used to harm the Army but no concrete examples of any real harm being done.”

WikiLeaks, a nonprofit organization, has rankled governments and companies around the world with its publication of materials intended to be kept secret. For instance, the Army’s report says that in 2008, access to the Web site in the United States was cut off by court order after Bank Julius Baer, a Swiss financial institution, sued it for publishing documents implicating Baer in money laundering, grand larceny and tax evasion. Access was restored after two weeks, when the bank dropped its case.

Reconciliation Act H.R.4872 Brings Microchipping to America (Health bill)

Vatic Note:  Well, we were so busy watching the militia story, that we missed this little piece of manipulative treason by our congress and President.   I wonder if the news was manipulated just for that reason?  Remember also that the IRS will be the armed enforcement division of this bill.   Also remember all the dogs that have been riddled with cancer who had those RFID chips in them, so is this a combination of "police state" and "depopulation"?

During the thorough coverage of H.R.3590 America thought it was free of a ‘Healthcare System’ that allowed a national medical registry to be created and the population to be tagged with implantable RFID chips. But a second heath care related bill called “The Reconciliation Act of 2010” (2300 pages) was recently passed by the Senate on March 25th after being passed by the House on March 21st. This bill has been cleared for the White House and awaits the signature of the Dictator and Chief. Buried in the text of the 2300 page monstrosity in section 2521, the creation of a National Medical Device Registry is enacted. This is portrayed as a registry to collect safety data on medical devices such as pacemakers and to put the safety data in a publicly accessible national electronic database.


But as usual the wording of this bill permits the creation of something entirely quite different. In 2004 the FDA approved the Verichip for use of storing medical records. This device was classified as a Class II medical device. This is most likely the Class II implantable device being referred to in this section of the bill. The bill allows the unique device identifier (Chip ID tag) to be linked to “postmarket safety patient outcome data” regarding the implantable device itself. In order “to facilitate the analyses of postmarket safety and patient outcomes” the health secretary will examine ways to gain access to Medicare health records, private sector health records and other data deemed necessary (including surveillance data) by the Health Secretary and then link it to the database and your RFID implant. Just to be accurate, section (3) defines “data” as “claims data, patient survey data, standardized analytic files that allow for the pooling and analysis of data from disparate data environments, electronic health records, and any other data deemed appropriate by the secretary.”

So basically this bill creates a National Database of any type of data deemed appropriate by the executive branch of the US Federal Government. This could literally be anything. This could include anything you might have expected to find in an East German Stasi file. All of this data will then be linked to a “Class II implantable device” under your skin. There you have it, just like Lindsey Williams warned us. Forget the national ID card, implantable microchips are coming to a clinic near you no later than 36 months after the bill is signed into law.

ITALIAN PRIME MINISTER COSSIGA

ALWAYS ASK: “WHO GAINS FROM THIS?


Every time there is a terrorist attack, the nations blamed say that it was a “false flag” operation. This is what America did to cover up My Lai. We were lying. Germans claimed Poland invaded Germany in 1939. An educated guess is that 75% of terrorist attacks we hear of were staged, never happened or were done by “radical groups” that were first infiltrated, then controlled and eventually financed and supplied by intelligence agencies. Intelligence agencies are, in actuality, the biggest terrorist organizations in the world. The CIA has blown up more buses, airplanes and markets than any almost anyone else. The Mossad may be number one, followed by, well, everyone, the RAW, ISI, MI-6, IRA and dozens of others.


Either directly or through idiots, clones (operatives using false identity to look like “terrorists”) or through simply doing it themselves, these groups promote national policy by destabilizing nations, swinging elections or defaming religious, national or political groups by staging attacks and using the press to place the blame. The popular video game Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 even has a terrorist attack on a transportation center in Moscow built into it, a “false flag” attack. Today, the real thing happened.

MOSCOW "FALSE FLAG" ATTACK IN VIDEO GAME

FRANCESCO COSSIGA, FORMER PRIME MINISTER, PRESIDENT AND MINISTER OF THE INTERIOR OF ITALY SPILLS HIS GUTS

With communism threatening to overrun Europe, NATO set up terrorist groups under Operation Gladio (short sword) to act as guerrilla armies in case Europe was overrun. As this became less and less likely, intelligence services began using the terrorist groups meant to fight Russia to manipulate politics in Europe through terrorist acts, such as bombings. We wouldn’t know the details if Cossiga, one of the planners of Operation Gladio, hadn’t spilled his guts about this and other “false flag” operations in Europe and elsewhere. This is what Cassiga told Robert Maroni, Italian Minister of the Interior about methods employed to control civil protests in Italy:

“Maroni should do what I did when I was Minister of the Interior.

“University students? … infiltrate them with agents provocateurs … and let the agents provocateurs devastate shops, set fire to cars and put cities to the sword for ten days.

“Then, having won the sympathy of the public … the police should pitilessly beat the shit out of protesters and send them all to hospital. “

Report: Israel copied thousands of passports

Vatic Note:   Keep in mind the number of foreign, British and US passports used to allow assassins from Mossad to murder the leader of a sovereign people.   Also check below where the mossad agent was arrested with a false passport.   We don't know why he needed a false passport, but now it becomes important to watch for any false flags anywhere, possibly even Russia with that subway murder that they are trying to blame on muslims.   Remember,  the neocons/Israeli's need a third world war and this type of black ops is how you generate one with fear and hate.  Lets not give it to them.

The language of violence always presages violence. I watched it in war after war from Latin America to the Balkans. The impoverishment of a working class and the snuffing out of hope and opportunity always produce angry mobs ready to kill and be killed. A bankrupt, liberal elite, which proves ineffectual against the rich and the criminal, always gets swept aside, in times of economic collapse, before thugs and demagogues emerge to play to the passions of the crowd. I have seen this drama. I know each act. I know how it ends. I have heard it in other tongues in other lands. I recognize the same stock characters, the buffoons, charlatans and fools, the same confused crowds and the same impotent and despised liberal class that deserves the hatred it engenders.


"We are ruled not by two parties but one party," Cynthia McKinney, who ran for president on the Green Party ticket, told me. "It is the party of money and war. Our country has been hijacked. And we have to take the country away from those who have hijacked it. The only question now is whose revolution gets funded."

The Democrats and their liberal apologists are so oblivious to the profound personal and economic despair sweeping through this country that they think offering unemployed people the right to keep their unemployed children on their nonexistent health care policies is a step forward. They think that passing a jobs bill that will give tax credits to corporations is a rational response to an unemployment rate that is, in real terms, close to 20 percent. They think that making ordinary Americans, one in eight of whom depends on food stamps to eat, fork over trillions in taxpayer dollars to pay for the crimes of Wall Street and war is acceptable. They think that the refusal to save the estimated 2.4 million people who will be forced out of their homes by foreclosure this year is justified by the bloodless language of fiscal austerity. The message is clear. Laws do not apply to the power elite. Our government does not work. And the longer we stand by and do nothing, the longer we refuse to embrace and recognize the legitimate rage of the working class, the faster we will see our anemic democracy die.

Utah governor signs bills to seize federal land

Vatic Note:   Remember the Feds owned over 67% of the state of Utah and then recently passed a bill claiming another 94 million acres of land that had just been assessed geologically as being rich in oil, gas, AND URANIUM.  Remember our article on the land the Queen owns and how, through that land, uranium is controlled by her?   Its in the archives here. Well, it was well past time that someone took back control over their sovereign land.   Good for Utah.

By:   Associated Press

Date:     03/29/2010
Salt Lake City - Utah Gov. Gary R. Herbert has signed two bills authorizing the state to use eminent domain to seize some of the federal government's most valuable land.




Supporters hope the bills, which the Republican governor signed Saturday, will trigger a flood of similar legislation throughout the West and, eventually, a Supreme Court battle that they hope to win -- against long odds.



More than 60% of Utah is owned by the U.S. government, and policymakers complain that federal ownership hinders their ability to generate tax revenue and adequately fund public schools. Governments use eminent domain to take private property for public use.



Initially, the state would target three areas, including the Kaiparowits plateau in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, which is home to large coal reserves. Eminent domain would also be used on parcels where Interior Secretary Ken Salazar scrapped 77 oil and gas leases last year.

Vatic Note:   Again, left and right being manipulated by the neocons to create civil war EXACTLY LIKE THEY DID IN AFGHANISTAN, IRAQ AND NOW IN PAKISTAN.  Its a tool that Rumsfeld made clear was a way to save money on war by having the Citizens fight and kill each other rather than the army who is sorely understaffed to take on a UNITED POPULATION.  Its really quite clever IF YOU FALL for the propoganda on it.   It appears from this blog's article that they are not falling for it and neither should we.  Any violence done was probably done by the private contract mercenaries under orders from the neocons.  Lets not give them what they want.   Here are blatant examples of  that:   http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/articleshow/msid-4508279,prtpage-1.cms, "CIA and ISI together created Taliban: Zardari", which means we created the other half of the civil war going on in Afghanistan.  Here is another one:  http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/la-fg-afghan-intel20-2009sep20,0,5307410,print.story,   "CIA expanding presence in Afghanistan",  these are just a few examples.   Remember in Iraq, when brits dressed as Iraqi's got arrested when caught planting bombs in a car to kill Iraqi's in a market place?   The US broke them out of the Iraqi prison.   WE are funding AQ and the Taliban and those proofs have been published on here in the past.   So this is simply more of the same and notice...... on the right,  both left and right publications owned by the NEOCONS did not mention the violence against the GOP rather promoted the violence against the dems.  Why?  GOP is armed, Left is not, so that would provide the support from one half of us (left) standing with the neocons against the right.  Its not about politics, its about gaining control over a nation of 308 million most of whom are now armed.  That is what this is all about.

"all politics now is merely dress rehearsal for civil war." Billy Beck


Bricks were thrown through the windows of the Albemarle County GOP headquarters overnight in what appears to be the Charlottesville area’s latest act of politically fueled vandalism.

County GOP Chairwoman Rachel Schoenewald arrived at the office in the Albemarle Square shopping center Friday morning to find two windows shattered and a third partially damaged.

“Hopefully, everyone will conduct themselves as community members and that this violence does not escalate or continue,” she said.

The county’s GOP headquarters also serves as the district office of Del. Rob Bell, R-Albemarle.

Schoenewald declined to blame any particular group, but noted that people are angry on both sides of the political spectrum.

“There are millions of people across the country,” she said. “Many of them are upset, one way or another. I hope this is the last of the violence.”

Albemarle County police are investigating the incident. Police estimated the damage would cost roughly $1,000 to fix. Police asked anyone with information about the vandalism to call Crimestoppers at 977-4000.

The shattered windows come five months after someone glued shut the GOP headquarters’ doors on Election Day when Republican Bob McDonnell defeated Democrat R. Creigh Deeds in Virginia’s gubernatorial race.

An Act of Treason by Members of the United States Congress?

Vatic Note:   This is one of several different takes one can make on what happened here.   This below is one of those takes, another one is that the Congress gave Obama "cover" on what he wanted to do anyway, but had to face the increasing distrust and angst against him by his base, and against our abusive ally, Israel.    As another writer put it, its like the victim of a marriage spousal abuse syndrome.    We keep getting slapped in the face,  arrogantly told by Israel herself that they control our government,  then they come here and prove it to our faces, and the result is a distrust now of both branches of gov and perception that we are an occupied nation and thus through treason.  So either way, Treason by both the White House and Congress is the result.  On that fact, there can be no doubt, regardless of why they did it, they did it to the  detriment of this nation's national interest at the risk of serious harm to her people and country.

It must have been realised that the letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, signed by nearly 300 members of the U.S. Congress, affirming their commitment to Israel, would be widely publicised and fall into the hands of that illegal Apartheid State, so the writing and signing of that letter should be considered an act of treason.


The letter has totally undermined the power of the President of the United States by virtually telling Israel: "It does not matter what you do to the Palestinians, how many illegal structures you build on the territory you stole from them; how you behave towards the Lebanese, or what you have in mind for Iran, we, the signatories on this letter are with you, all the way."

CPS Involved In Child Trafficking Rings Explains Senator Schafer - Part I of 4

Vatic Note: This Senator and her husband have been "suicided and murdered". It was announced recently in the MSM, and yet not a word about her work investigating this High level international child trafficking trade, by CPS, announced 3/27 and updated 3/28/2010. Now why didn't they announce what she was involved in during this murder suicide? She had been all over the news on this. Remember we have evidence of this pedophilia going on at the highest levels of government and corporations such as Dynacorp, with no action against them for commiting such a crime, interntionally. Once again, notice in the article below, the mention of her speaking at a "World Congress of Families of Families V in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on "The Unlimited Power of Child Protective Services." Mrs. Schaefer also carried the same message to the Nordic Community on Human Rights in Sweden. Netherlands, there it is again, the home of the Bildeberg group. A country who recently showed up in the news as providing a private military to occupy Iceland shortly after their referendum kicking the bankers out of the country, and rejecting the global banker scam artists within Britian and Amsterday. Also remember, its the same city and airport controlled by Israel that allowed the panty bomber onto the plane and the first airport to allow the scanner that looks at naked bodies. What do we really have going on in that little tiny country? Somebody please pull the plug on those dykes.   Forrmer Ga. state senator, husband found dead in their home

Given the recent spats of such "heart attacks, suicides and unsolved murders" of whistleblowers and justice seekers, We believe its important to look behind these events until such time as Cheney's and now Rahms' "CIA and Mossad Domestic Assassination Squads" can be investigated, prosecuted, and disbanded since justice can only come from such transparency and viewing. Watch these and read the articles yourselves and decide.   These are earlier videos during her investigation of this massive Social services kidnapping of children for the sex trade.   You can see what she was doing that may have created this result for her and her spouse.

TURNERVILLE, Ga. — Authorities are investigating the deaths of former Georgia state Sen. Nancy Schaefer and her husband as a possible murder-suicide.

The Associated Press reports that the two were found dead Friday at their home in Turnerville in north Georgia. Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokesman John Bankhead says the preliminary investigation is looking at the case as a murder-suicide, but he did not have further details.

Six GBI agents were at the home investigating at the request of the Habersham County Sheriff’s Department.

Schaefer was a Republican who represented a north Georgia district for two terms. She was a prominent conservative known as a vocal opponent of abortion and same-sex marriage.

Schaefer chose not to run for re-election in 2008 and since then has been the Georgia chairwoman for the nonprofit Christian conservative group Eagle Forum.

Schaefer was also founder and president of Family Concerns Inc., a nonprofit organization in Georgia created for the purpose of strengthening and protecting the family.

Schaefer was the founder and president of two Pro-life Family Concerns Pregnancy Centers in Atlanta that served over 5,000 girls and women.

She was the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor in 1994 and was the first woman candidate for governor of Georgia in 1998. She was elected to the Georgia State Senate from the 50th District in 2004.

Schaefer served eight years as a trustee of the National Ethics and Religions Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. In that capacity, she represented the convention at the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, China, at the U.N. Conference on Human Settlements in Istanbul, Turkey, at the U.N. Conference on Food in Rome, Italy, and the U.N. follow up Conference to Beijing in New York.

Recently she spoke at the World Congress of Families V in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on "The Unlimited Power of Child Protective Services." Mrs. Schaefer also carried the same message to the Nordic Community on Human Rights in Sweden.

She was a former first vice president of the Georgia Baptist Convention, a frequent speaker to churches of all denominations, a speaker to civic and political organizations, and a frequent guest on radio and television programs. In 2001, Schaefer became the first woman trustee to serve on the Toccoa Falls College Board in Toccoa, Ga. She and her husband were members of Ebenezer Baptist Church of Toccoa.

Schaefer and her husband, Bruce Schaefer, were the are parents of four sons and one daughter. They had 13 grandchildren.

Schaefer has been a host of several radio shows in the Atlanta area and the author of daily commentaries over WRAF, WEPC and WTFH.

State Rep. Rick Austin announced Schaefer's death to a packed House chamber Friday night and led lawmakers in a moment of silence.

Pentagon Wants $33 Billion More for War in Afghanistan

Pentagon Wants $33 Billion More for War in Afghanistan
Thursday 25 March 2010
by: Gordon Lubold   |  The Christian Science Monitor

Washington — The Pentagon wants $33 billion in additional funding to pay for the war in Afghanistan this year and train the Afghan military, but members of Congress want to make sure they’re not writing a blank check.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared before Senate appropriators to defend the war supplemental, which is on top of the $708 billion baseline budget submitted to Congress in February.

Did Iraq Just Elect a Mass-Murderer?

Did Iraq Just Elect a Mass-Murderer?

The charge that Ayad Allawi committed a heinous crime was widely reported outside the United States, but our media killed it. 

We can’t know whether the new Iraqi prime minister, Ayad Allawi, murdered six restrained men in cold blood while a mix of Iraqi and American guards looked on in shock. 

What we do know is that Allawi was alleged to have committed the gruesome crime just before the “hand-over” of the government to Iraqi nationals in 2004 (he served as interim prime minister in Iraq’s transitional government). The allegations were made by an award-winning journalist in a major mainstream publication -- Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald -- relying on two sources who confirmed details of the event independently of one another.
