Some 1,700 of the world's leading scientists, including the majority of Nobel laureates in the sciences, issued this appeal in November 1992. The Warning was written and spearheaded by UCS Chair Henry Kendall.
Human beings and the natural world are on a collision course. Human activities inflict harsh and often irreversible damage on the environment and on critical resources. If not checked, many of our current practices put at serious risk the future that we wish for human society and the plant and animal kingdoms, and may so alter the living world that it will be unable to sustain life in the manner that we know. Fundamental changes are urgent if we are to avoid the collision our present course will bring about.

And that was the way it all ended, during that fateful week in September, 2009, the week when one man, President Barack Obama turned the old order upon its head, giving us the blessed New Order we all share in today, in peace and harmony, no longer shackled to the wheels of war that drove the old solutions to humanity's problems.
You see, it wasn't always so. The world never knew real peace until our generation. Before the beginning of the current era, all of mankind's resources were dedicated to an inhumane struggle for domination. There was no hope, as fear was civilization's primary organizational factor. Alliances of mutual defense were created, borders were drawn, creating lines to be defended at all costs. People today cannot understand what went down in the past; very few of us are aware of the terrible price that was paid to create communities of men from cave-dwelling proto-humans. A global society that has been estranged to the world of fear can hardly fathom the "Week of Change" that marked the beginning of an era of harmony, that began with one man's inner turmoil and ended with a decisive determination to create a better future for all mankind.

I still get a thrill whenever I get my hands on a confidential memo with "The White House, Washington" appearing on the letterhead. Even when—like the one I'm looking at now—it's about a snoozy topic: This week's G-20 summit.
But the letter's content shook me awake, and may keep me up the rest of the night.
The 6-page letter from the White House, dated September 3, was sent to the 20 heads of state that will meet this Thursday in Pittsburgh. After some initial diplo-blather, our President's "sherpa" for the summit, Michael Froman, does a little victory dance, announcing that the recession has been defeated. "Global equity markets have risen 35 percent since the end of March," writes Froman. In other words, the stock market is up and all's well.

Lyndon Baines/Barack Hussein... Will we never learn.
"We need people to put out, to tell the truth, and to do it, not the way I did, not after the escalation, Not after the bombs have fallen but right now; Right now; For the Congress to hold hearings that will entertain those people." - Daniel Ellsberg in a conversation pegged to a new documentary, The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers.
"I look at this film and I watch the bombs falling and all I can see in my mind are the bombs - the same bombs - falling over Afghanistan (or Vietnamistan) and Iraq right now.

When the former mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, interviewed Hamas chief Khaled Meshaal last week he was immediately attacked by Britain's Foreign Office Minister, Ivan Lewis.
Lewis said: "It is particularly regrettable that he [Livingstone] learned the wrong lessons from history by handing a propaganda coup to the leader of a terrorist organisation. Hamas has not only breached international law by firing rockets at civilian populations in Israel but continues to violate the human rights of Palestinians in Gaza".

John Bolton was the stooge for the Cheney/ Bush administration ~ the guy they could count on to ruffle the UN's feathers and remind them who ran the world. Ben Bernanke is the inherited stooge for the Obama administration ~ the guy the oligarchy can count on to remind the world who controls the still unaudited money supply:
It was Ben Bernanke who said last week ~ " From a technical perspective, the recession is very likely over at this point " but Bernanke is speaking for the Wall Street Corporate Oligarchy who feel they dodged a bullet while Main Street has been run over by a deepening Recession/Depression.
It was George Orwell who wrote (1984 ) ~ "The essence of oligarchical rule is not father-to-son inheritance, but the persistence of a certain world-view and a certain way of life ... A ruling group is a ruling group so long as it can nominate its successors... Who wields power is not important, provided that the hierarchical structure remains always the same."

Throughout the world there is an upsurge of regional, ‘sub- national’ movements whose demands range from greater ‘autonomy’ to complete independence. Many analysts have commented on the apparent paradox of increasing global integration of economies and the increasing fragmentation of nation-states. A deeper look at the internal dynamics of regional conflicts and external imperial strategies unravels the ‘paradox’ – by revealing the inter-relationships between competing empire building strategies and national fragmentation and regional conflicts.

“The undersigned therefore take this means of publicly presenting a few salient facts concerning Begin and his party; and of urging all concerned not to support this latest manifestation of fascism.” - Albert Einstein, signatory to Letters to the Editor, New York Times, December 4, 1948.
Online reports of a study by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency cast doubt over the survival of Israel beyond the next two decades. Regardless of the validity of the report, with what is now known about the costs in blood and treasure that the U.S.-Israeli relationship has imposed on the U.S., its key ally, Israel could fall within five years.
