When Leaders Fail; We the People Must Lead

October 5th, 2009

Eileen Fleming

On October 2, 2009, The Washington Times reported that "Obama agrees to keep Israel's nukes secret [and] reaffirmed a 4-decade-old secret understanding that has allowed Israel to keep a nuclear arsenal without opening it to international inspections." [1]

Three "officials spoke on the condition that they not be named because they were discussing private conversations, said Mr. Obama pledged to maintain the agreement when he first hosted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House in May.

Obama: Trilateral Commission Endgame

October 4th, 2009

Patrick Wood

[For clarity, members of the Trilateral Commission appear in bold type.]

As previously noted in Pawns of the Global Elite, Barack Obama was groomed for the presidency by key members of the Trilateral Commission. Most notably, it was Zbigniew Brzezinski, co-founder of the Trilateral Commission with David Rockefeller in 1973, who was Obama’s principal foreign policy advisor.

The pre-election attention is reminiscent of Brzezinski’s tutoring of Jimmy Carter prior to Carter’s landslide election in 1976.

For anyone who doubts the Commission’s continuing influence on Obama, consider that he has already appointed no less than nine members of the Commission to top-level and key positions in his Administration.

As I have been saying for years, Wall Street is indeed a crime scene and Michael Moore reveals most of the co-conspirators, including Barack Obama, in his devastating exposé of unrestrained Wall Street greed, political influence and its continuing deadly consequences for Main Street :

Michael Moore hits a grand slam home run with his riveting, humorous and always informative exposé of the unholy alliance between big bankers and the Treasury Department, the tax burden shift from the rich to the poor and the loss of jobs and rights from individuals to corporations. To me, the most devastating moment of the film ~ the moment when our democracy essentially ended and the plutocracy took full control ~ was when Congress passed the 700 billion dollar bank bailout last year, against the American public's wishes and after the House had rejected it, with the full agreement of President elect Obama. The Bush baton of Wall Street greed and denial was then effectively passed on to the Obama administration which has yet to reveal the full extent of our economic quagmire.

Israel eyes Al-Aqsa

Recent Israeli police violence at Al-Aqsa Mosque confirms that Israel's leaders condone attempts by Jewish fanatics to destroy the second holiest Islamic shrine

Al-Aqsa Mosque esplanade witnessed yet another episode of violence on Sunday, 27 September, writes Khaled Amayreh in the West Bank, when a group of Jewish religious fanatics disguised as foreign tourists tried to storm Haram Al-Sharif, apparently to gain "prayer rites" at the Islamic sanctuary.

The Muslim guards, along with worshipers, who had been expecting an intrusion of some sort to take place in light of the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), peacefully ousted the intruders after they began performing Jewish rituals and calling for the destruction of Islamic holy places.

Lies, nukes and…Israel

October 4th, 2009

John Pilger

Obama's "showdown" with Iran has another agenda. The media have been tasked with preparing the public for endless war.

In 2001, the Observer published a series of reports that claimed an "Iraqi connection" to al-Qaeda, even describing the base in Iraq where the training of terrorists took place and a facility where anthrax was being manufactured as a weapon of mass destruction. It was all false. Supplied by US intelligence and Iraqi exiles, planted stories in the British and US media helped George Bush and Tony Blair to launch an illegal invasion which caused, according to the most recent study, 1.3 million deaths.

Israel Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu's UN speech last week ran hollow. Zionism is alive and well in Israel and thrives on the perception of victim hood when in reality it utilizes Old testament judgments, Zionist fanaticism and a vast arsenal of illegal chemical, biological and nuclear weapons, which it has never declared, to manipulate and control versus cooperate and co-exist with its neighbors:

It was Henry Kissenger who once said "It's not a matter of what is true that counts but a matter of what is perceived to be true."

Will Obama Have Veto Courage?

October 3rd, 2009

Joel S. Hirschhorn

Odds are pretty good that after some tortuous meetings and awful compromises by House and Senate bigwigs whatever health reform law is passed by Congress will not be close to what most thoughtful people want. Especially not what progressives and liberals wanted from a Democrat controlled Congress. Will President Obama act with integrity?

Whatever goes to President Obama for his signature will probably do very little to curb the countless excesses by the health insurance industry and, therefore, do next to nothing to curb personal and national health spending. It will almost certainly impose some new taxes that ultimately will impact a large fraction of the population, possibly by taxes on health insurance benefits or through higher insurance premiums and/or copayments and deductibles, or even worse coverage. Even if there is some type of government option, which does not now seem likely, it would likely be constructed so cleverly that few would take advantage of it.

UN official fired over criticisms of Afghan election fraud

October 2nd, 2009

Joe Kishore

Publications on the “left” and right rushed to back the “green” opposition, denouncing the Iranian government for organizing a “stolen election.” There is no such comparable outrage over the elections in Afghanistan, nor any calls for aid to Karzai’s defrauded opponents.

Peter Galbraith, the second-ranking official in the United Nations Assistance Mission to Afghanistan (UNAMA), and the agency’s top-ranking US official, was dismissed on Wednesday over his criticisms of the August 20 Afghan election.

Galbraith was an outspoken critic of President Hamid Karzai, charging major vote fraud in the elections. In the weeks following the election, as evidence of fraud became widespread, Galbraith had a public falling out with the top UN official in Afghanistan, Kai Eide of Norway.

His dismissal comes amid signs that the US and Europe have decided to support Karzai for another term. An article in the Washington Post on Monday reported that US and NATO foreign ministers “told President Hamid Karzai’s government that they expect him to remain in office for another five-year term.” (See “US, NATO reach ‘consensus’ to sanction rigged election in Afghanistan”)
