Aggressive rhetoric and a push for Israel to attack Iran have been, lately, intensified in the American media. While senators are trying to get President Obama to officially support an Israeli attack on Iran, reporters of the main media are trying to convince the average American that Iran’s (non-existent) nuclear weapons program, half the globe away, is a threat to America, and the only viable way to stop Iran is through an Israeli “preventive” attack. They claim that the consequences of such an attack, warned by some military strategists as devastating, are “overblown”. Many Zionist-bought Senators assert that the Congress strongly rejects nuclear Iran and supports the use of all means to keep Iran from acquiring a bomb including through military actions. Reiterating this assertion during their visit to Israel last July, Senators McCain, Lieberman and Graham hinted that Israel could spearhead such an attack that would definitely draw American forces in the conflict to finish the job.

In November 2007, 85-year old law-abiding citizen Paul Henss, of suburban Atlanta, Georgia, was deported to Germany, the country of his birth. He had lived in America for 53 years. Henss had immigrated to the US in 1955 at age 33, trying to escape the chaos, hunger and deprivations of post-war Germany. Unfortunately, he had omitted informing immigration authorities at the time about the precise role he had played the war.
Henss had been caught up in the unrelenting dragnet of the US State Department’s Nazi-hunting bureaucracy. The Jewish director of the unit, Eli Rosenbaum, had decided that Henss was a genuine war criminal for having briefly trained guard dogs during the war.
Henss was born in 1922 and, by age 12 - in 1934 - he had joined the Hitler Youth, as did most Aryan boys in Germany (including Pope Benedict XVI). At age 19 he, like most German young men, had been conscripted into the military - whether willing to fight and kill for Germany or not. He was assigned to the Waffen SS and fought with the most decorated German division of the war, the Ist SS Panzer Division.

Robert Gibbs complaining about the left shouldn’t come as any big surprise. The Obama administration has ignored the left since its inception and will continue to do so. So Gibbs thinks we shouldn’t complain that he’s too centrist? What is that, double speak for waging war in faraway places? Is that a “centrist” thing to do? In this day and age I guess it is. Centrism among the politicians means far right to the real left.
How do I know what the left wants? I AM the left. I eat it, I drink it, I spend my days thinking about it. I recently joined the Democratic Socialists of America. I am a card carrying member of the American left. I don’t need Gibbs telling me that I’m pushing Obama too fast. I couldn’t be bothered. Obama is just what the powers that be want him to be. He preached to the choir and the choir fell for it, this after he reneged on the FISA Bill and gave immunity to the telecoms after promising to filibuster the bill. He also said that he wouldn’t take money for his campaign from special interests. Do I have to tell you that Goldman Sachs was one of his biggest contributors? So when will the left get wise to Obama?
The Federal Reserve, in announcing the results of this week's meeting of the Open Market Committee, surprised the market by revealing it will begin purchasing US Treasury notes and bonds with the principal income it receives from its vast holdings of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac mortgage securities. This practice - wherein the Fed buys up US government securities and injects cash into the public market as payment for these securities - is a form of monetizing the debt.
The last time the Fed did this on a big scale was back in the 1960s when it attempted to mop up the excess Treasury securities that were flooding the market as a result of Lyndon Johnson's efforts to finance the Vietnam War. That Fed program was viewed at the time as a failure, since the cash the Fed put back into the economy in exchange for the securities was a big reason - perhaps the major reason - why price inflation accelerated from the late 1960s until a decade later, when Paul Volcker managed to squelch inflation once and for all with forbiddingly high interest rates.

On her August 9 show on MSNBC Rachel Maddow went for an easy attack on those seeking government reforms through constitutional amendments but also missed a big opportunity to inform and educate her audience and millions more Americans.
She ridiculed those, especially Republican candidates and congressmen, making a big point of using constitutional amendments as a way to build public support for themselves. Her basic point was that amending the constitution is really, really hard. It is so difficult that the public should not take this political rhetoric very seriously as a practical way to change law.
Israel's Defense Force's Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi testified today before the Israeli internal probe into Israel's deadly raid on the Gaza-bound aid flotilla. He defended the military from politicians' accusations that it botched the operation.
"The commandos exhibited calm, bravery and morality… Their actions were proportionate and correct", Ashkenazi told the inquiry.
Let’s, once again, watch the video of Israeli soldiers executing a peace activist on the Mavi Marmara so we know what the words "bravery, morality, proportionate and correct" stand for in the Jewish State's lexicon.

If you look beyond the barebacked illegal alien scaling a barb-wired fence, you’ll discover a trail of dead that leads all the way back to Mexico City. There you’ll find President Felipe Calderon—chillin’ like a villain—with a motley wrecking crew of CIA operatives, Latin American drug lords and an assortment of corporate henchmen from such infamous organizations as Halliburton, DynCorp and SYColeman. Look beyond them, and you’ll discover a trail of cash that leads all the way back to Wall Street and Washington D.C.
Oakland, California - August 10, 2010 - Today, in response to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs' insensitive remarks harshly and very unprofessionally criticizing the "professional left" for principled criticism of President Obama, Cindy Sheehan had this to say from her Oakland, Ca. home:
"I want to make it very clear that I am not a hypocrite and any criticisms I have made of Obama are the exact same things I said when George Bush was president because the same foreign policies have continued, if not worsened during the tenure of the Obama administration."
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.
