Obama has come, Obama has gone and the theme is still the same: blood for bread is the magic solution for the Palestinian problem. You Palestinians must abide by the necessities of Israeli security the way Israel sees fit, if you want to sustain a shaky salary by the end of the month. The Palestinian must arrest his/her fellow Palestinian, or kill him/her for the bare subsistence salary to flow. Kill your Palestinian fellow brother or sister and be sure of receiving a loaf of bread next day.
The American policy toward the Palestinians is one of the most ruthless and merciless in the history of mankind. It recruits Palestinians, train them, equip them with lethal instruments through the stooge Arab regimes so as to fight those Palestinians who seek to regain their own liberty and liberate their occupied land. The US claims to be the champion of human rights and freedom at the very moment it carries mass massacres and pogroms directly or indirectly in Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
On June 9, 2009, a broad coalition of organizations representing over one million members filed supplementary material with five state legal disciplinary committees in support of its complaints to disbar twelve Bush Administration lawyers who advocated the use of torture — John Yoo, David Addington, John Ashcroft, Douglas Feith, Alice Fisher, Alberto Gonzales, Michael Chertoff, Michael Mukasey, Michael Haynes, Stephen Bradbury, Jay Bybee, and Timothy Flanigan.

Within a month of 9/11, millions of Americans bought American flags. Small flags they flew from their cars, trucks, and bicycles. Medium-sized flags they planted in their front yards, put onto their home windows, and flew from recently-installed metal poles on doors and porches. Large flags they flew in front of their businesses.
In our tragedy and grief we stuck together, the flag a symbol of our unity and patriotism.
It wasn't long until commercialism in the guise of patriotism dominated the American unity. In newspaper and magazine ads, in television campaigns, whether for cars or political races, we saw the message and an image of the flag. In myriad direct mail flyers, we first saw the flag and a patriotic call—and then an advertising pitch that each of us had an inviolate right to buy whatever the advertiser was pushing. General Motors even claimed that we could "get America rolling" again by buying cars.
But discredited Brown clings to power by his finger-nails
What does it take for Britain's Zionist prime minister, Gordon Brown, to get the message? Having been deeply humiliated in the Euro elections and local government elections, he hangs on by his finger-nails. He simply will not do the decent thing and stand down.
The verdict of the people was clear enough. They've had enough of Brown and his ghastly crew. Oliver Cromwell said it for us, when dismissing Parliament back in 1653, with an elegance that’s sadly lacking today: “Ye sordid prostitutes... you have sat here too long for the good you do. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!”
But the charmless Brown refuses the revolver on the silver tray. He will not do us the courtesy of retiring to the library and blowing his brains out.

“More than 20 minutes before the fatal torpedo strike that killed 25 sailors, Israel’s chief air controller conclusively identified the ‘Liberty’ as an American ship.” - James Scott, Author
Warning! Reading James Scott’s book, “Attack on the Liberty: The Untold Story of Israel’s Deadly 1967 Assault on a U.S. Spy Ship,” will cause your blood pressure to rise! He’s the son of James Scott, an Ensign on the “Liberty,” who survived the dastardly assault by Israel. How the men of the “Liberty” were abandoned by their own government, then led by President Lyndon B. Johnson, (LBJ), makes for a compelling read. It will also cause you to wonder: Whatever happened to our Republic?

Even as President Barrack Obama waxed eloquent in Cairo, Egypt, on the moral imperatives of the community of nations, public opinion polls released in the United States revealed that, by a substantial percentage, its citizens believe torture is an acceptable option for interrogation of suspects deemed terrorists by various US governmental agencies. In addition, other polls show a majority of the American public hold the opinion that the all American theme park of state torture, located at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, should remain open for business and continue to welcome guests from around the globe, taking them for the ride of their lives through the dark id of the American psyche.
At least three US federal laws should concern all Americans and suggest what may be coming - mandatory vaccinations for hyped, non-existant threats, like H1N1 (Swine Flu). Vaccines and drugs like Tamiflu endanger human health but are hugely profitable to drug company manufacturers.
The Project BioShield Act of 2004 (S. 15) became law on July 21, 2004 "to provide protections and countermeasures against chemical, radiological, or nuclear agents that may be used in a terrorist attack against the United States by giving the National Institutes of Health contracting flexibility, infrastructure improvements, and expediting the scientific peer review process, and streamlining the Food and Drug Administration approval process of countermeasures."
Tom Engelhardt & Alfred W. McCoy
When the Abu Ghraib photos were released in 2004, it seemed that most Americans were shocked by such novel and horrific images, but at least one was not. I'm talking about Alfred McCoy, who had been following the Central Intelligence Agency since the early 1970s, when it unsuccessfully tried to stop the publication of his book, The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade.
As soon as McCoy saw the now grimly iconic images of hooded figures, naked men on leashes, and the like, his reaction -- even grimmer than that of the rest of us -- was recognition. He had long been studying the CIA's pioneering research into methods of psychological torture. (The Agency had embarked on this project in the early 1950s, initially studying old Soviet and Chinese methods of interrogating and breaking prisoners.) As a result, he knew that what was unique at Abu Ghraib was not the methods of abuse, but those images. Thanks to cell phones and computers, these could be taken in quantity and passed around by anyone in the vicinity. Those photos, he also knew, were no record of aberrations: they represented policy and were recognizably out of the CIA's several-decade-old torture playbook.
Until April 5, 2013 the 1984 American science fiction-horror film, directed by John Carpenter could be streamed or downloaded from a number of websites. They Live (Full movie) was in the playlist below created by Buddy Huggins.
These days you can’t swing a cat or open your mailbox without being hit by a flood of emails about the memorials, tributes, condolences, and donation sites for the victims of these tragedies that the conspiracy theorists say were created -- not right after the event, but right before the event.
