The ouster of veteran White House correspondent Helen Thomas, after an anti-Zionist comment Sunday, is yet another demonstration of the politically foul and utterly conformist milieu of official Washington. Hearst Newspapers announced the “resignation” of Thomas Monday a day after her comments were widely publicized in the media.
"To avoid sharp, disruptive shifts in spending programs and tax policies in the future, and to retain the confidence of the public and the markets, we should be planning now how we will meet these looming budgetary challenges." Strong words for a Fed Chief who has been responsible for the largest money supply increase in the history of the U.S. Between 2007 and 2010, Bernanke created at least an additional $2 trillion in dollars in order to bail out his banker buddies, and since his is an appointed position to a quasi-private group of banks, no American citizens can ever vote him out…ever. So to hear him tell the Congress to cut the deficit is a bit like an arsonist telling firemen to extinguish fires.

Israel has approached the United States for more bombs and asked Washington to increase an emergency arms cache stowed on Israeli soil by 50 per cent, according to the leading newspaper Ha'aretz.
The carnage to the United States is so staggering, it will take your breathe away. Should what the scientists who are trying to warn everyone about be even close to being true... all of Florida will be completely destroyed as will everyone and everything on it. You decide!! Everyone has the right to read what I have just written in this article, as well as to what is written below by the scientists who the Obama administration and BP are trying to shut up.
