Maine Senators Break With Republican Party on Stimulus

Carl Hulse The New York Times Tue- Feb 10, 2009

On one of the biggest bills ever to confront lawmakers, the two senators, surviving members of the vanishing breed of New England Republicans, are wielding outsize power. Along with Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, the third Republican who broke from the pack and provided a crucial vote for initial passage on Tuesday, the two Mainers find themselves holding virtual veto control over the legislation as it enters crucial negotiations between the House and Senate.

Letters To Leaders at Congres.org makes it clear what the concensus is on Bank Bailouts. NO!

Letters To Leaders on Congress.org allows anyone to take a fair sampling of the mood of the nation simply by reading letters sent to government leaders that have been made public by the writer's request.

The link provided gives anyone access to the headers to those letters and the actual content, by issue (search "budget"), and by state, and by individual elected officials in Washington D.C.

In other words, you can read the mail that went to your Congressional leaders or even to Barack Obama on the stimulus package.

How these assholes one by one can ignore the will of the people is simply beyond comprehension.

FAA to loosen fuel-tank safety rules, benefiting Boeing's 787

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has quietly decided to loosen stringent fuel-tank safety regulations written after the 1996 fuel-tank explosion that destroyed flight TWA 800 off the coast of New York state.

The FAA proposes to relax the safeguards for preventing sparks inside the fuel tank during a lightning strike, standards the agency now calls "impractical" and Boeing says its soon-to-fly 787 Dreamliner cannot meet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fuel-tank rules were part of the public relations aspect of the cover-up. They were cosmetic right form the start.

TWA 800 was shot down by a US Navy missile during a botched test of the Aegis-CEC system conducted off of Long Island during that summer. Missiles had been seen in flight both before and after the tragedy.

But the US Government covered it up (as they have covered up so much through the years) and blamed an exploding fuel tank. So, the FAA, to conform to the deception, had to impose new rules on fuel tanks, rules which were pointless, and as this article confirms, to be quietly disposed of once they were no longer needed to support the official story.

Cheney Warns Of Another Mass Terror Attack

As to the specifics of this new verbal threat, it may not be imminent, but it does give a strong hint that the powers behind government are planning to perpetrate another terror attack. The dramatic circumstances would naturally force President Obama to once again apologize for changing course and begin to champion anew the same aggressive tactics on terror that the preceding administration did. That is the intent, I believe, of Cheney's threatening stance.

Jews tell Vatican: Holocaust denial is a crime

World Jewish leaders told Vatican officials that denying the Holocaust was "not an opinion but a crime" when they met on Monday to discuss a bishop they accuse of being anti-Semitic.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Holocaust denial is only a crime because the defenders of the orthodoxy are so terrified of an honest and open examination of the issue.

Throughout history, all hoaxes were perpetrated int the context of their own times; what the hoaxer could get away with. When Ramses The Great lied to his people about the battle of Kadesh he did so because in his time, few if any Egyptians had the means to travel to Kadesh (which actually remained under Hittite control) and find out for themselves what happened, and those few Egyptians who did know the truth had no means to get the word out to their fellow Egyptians, who were being brainwashed by the carvings on the temple walls.

But today, because of the ease of travel, and the internet, it is common knowledge that Ramses was male-cow-manuring his own people.

Over the years, many of the claims made regarding the horrors of the Nazi slave labor camps have come under re-examination as new technology becomes available.

As one example, there were claims that the Nazis were making soap out of the dead bodies of their Jewish victims. When the story first surfaced in 1943 as part of a fund raising tour by Russian Jews seeking aid to rebuild Russia, there was no way to verify it. As new science and technology came along, surviving bars of soap were tested and found that far from being made from the fat of human victims, the soap was a typical wartime soap made with very little fat at all. Later DNA tests showed the fat was not from humans, but from pigs (a serious embarrassment to those who had buried bars of the soap in Jewish graveyards).

Then there was the story about the human skin lampshades. This story went that the wife of a camp commandant obtained the skin from the camp's victims and used it as a crafts material for lampshades, gloves, and so forth. Again, at the time there was no way to verify the story. But as science developed new methods, the lampshades and gloves were found to be made of goatskin, a common craft material of the time.

The there were the claims of mass graves at Treblinka. Over 800,000 victims of the Nazis were claimed to have been buried there. But one of the grave sites abuts a water well, and when testing of the water failed to detect any of the contamination which would result from burying thousands of bodies near a water well (the water should have been lethal to drink), the story was revised to claim that as war's end, the Nazis had dug all those 800,000 bodies up and cremated them to conceal the evidence of their crimes. Again, as science progressed this story came into doubt as there was no trace of the vast amount of combustion residues which would have permeated the site of such a huge fire. And finally, ground penetrating radar, which certainly did not exist back when this story was first told, proves that the area where the graves are supposed to have existed has never been disturbed. The strata remains as it was laid down by the glaciers during the last great ice age.

Time makes ancient truth uncouth, and as new science comes along it is the normal practice to apply that science to the world to refine, and in some cases revise, what we know of our history. New technologies are being applied to the wreck of the Titanic, to determine what role the quality of metal played in the disaster, as one example. Seeking to know more about what we know is a natural instinct for humans.

Except, of course, in this one area of history. And it is the sheer weight of political force brought to bear to silence those who ask questions which most advertises that there is something being hidden from us all.

There is nothing that is beyond re-examination using new technologies. There is nothing above question. That we only just now learn that Tutankhamen had an impacted wisdom tooth does not bring about the end of Egypt. It's just scholarship. Even the much venerated Shroud of Turin has been subject to re-examination by science. The results were not as hoped for, but for those who hold truth to be the most valuable commodity we have, the outcome was still positive; we know more today than we knew yesterday.

Frankly, as we watch the political bludgeoning of Bishop Williamson by the defenders of the orthodox account of WW2 it becomes obvious that they are afraid, intensely afraid, which means they KNOW they defend a story which, like Ramses tale of victory over the Hittites, will not survive objective re-examination. Every act, whether it is the jailings of Zundel and Rudolph, the wrecking of academic careers, and now the imposition of Jewish religious will over the Vatican; each and every action is an advertisement that here is a question that cannot be allowed to be asked.

We do not arrest people who think Elvis is still alive. We do not send people who claim to have seen Bigfoot to jail. We do not wreck the careers and finances of those who claim they had sex with little green critters on board a UFO. Only on this one topic is refusal to conform to the 'revealed wisdom' so fraught with peril!

Look at where all the cover-ups overlap. Look for that most protected point. Look for that focus where even bitter enemies come together to conceal, and there you will find lurking the greatest lie of modern times; as great a lie as when the Pharaoh of Egypt claimed to have won a war against the Hittites.

Let the truth be told, though the heavens may fall.

Research halted at alleged anthrax mailer's former lab

"The lab was the workplace of Bruce Ivins, who killed himself in July after learning he would be charged in the 2001 anthrax mailings that killed five people," the AP notes. "A memo obtained by The Associated Press says workers are examining the contents of all refrigerators and freezers at the U.S. Army Research Institute of Infectious Diseases at Fort Detrick in Frederick."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The lab was also the workplace of Dr. Philip Zack, the man actually caught entering the lab at night without authorization AFTER losing his job over a racially motivated attack on an Egyptian co-worker.

And closing the lab NOW, after Bruve Ivans is conveniently dead and scapegoated for the anthrax letters, suggests there is still a problem with missing pathogens ... which sort of let's Bruce off of the hook, when you think about it.

Aspects of the plan that have been settled include a new round of injections of taxpayer funds into banks, targeted at those identified by regulators as most in need of new capital, people briefed on the matter said.

“We have to reach a point where investors and consumers have greater confidence in our financial system,” Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank President Charles Plosser said in an interview. “Without that, these institutions will not be able to attract new capital or be able to fully resume their important role in providing credit.”

Nazis developed Thalidomide and tested it on concentration camp prisoners, author claims

The claim could have implications for the compensation of surviving victims, including 457 in the UK, if the German government is held liable for their condition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ooooh let's wave NAZIS at everyone one more time (and make a few bucks in the process).

As this article openly admits, a German company named Grünenthal owns the patent on Thalidomide, but Grünenthal did not exist until after the war was over. Moreover, any and all patentable technologies were looted via operation paperclip, and handed to allied companies as war booty.

Blaming the Nazis means more lawsuits for "compensation" and "reparations."

But before you all start spending that money, kindly explain why no stories of a rash of malformed children have ever been told by the survivors of the slave labor camps? Or that the Nazis, even if they did invent Thalidomide, did so with intent to cause harm.

Or why present day Germans, who were mostly not even alive during the first half of the last Century, bear any responsibility.

Holocaust denier cleric refuses to recant views

THE British bishop who questions the Holocaust has defied the Pope's demand for him to recant his views.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It should be obvious to any objective observer that this debate has totally abandoned any pretext of reality and has degenerated into a contest of who can bludgeon whom into believing as they are told to believe.

Notice that none of the defenders of the orthodoxy suggest the obvious step of an objective assessment of the available factual data; the chemical tests of the surviving buildings, DNA tests on the soap and lampshades, new ground penetrating radar scans not only of Treblinka but every other site claimed to hold mass graves, DNA tests on the remains of victims in the Ukraine mass graves to determine of they really are Jews or executed Russians.

Bishop defends right to question Holocaust

British Bishop Richard Williamson says his research compels him to avoid resorting to "emotions" on his questions regarding the Holocaust.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is no such thing as knowledge which is above question or re-examination. We all have a right, and in the aftermath of the Iraq "nookular bombs" lies, a moral duty, to question everything we are told that serves a political agenda.

Truth needs no law to support it. Truth is self-evident to all. Truth withstands re-examination. Truth survives questions. Throughout history, from Bruno to Galileo to Zundel, only lies and liars have resorted to the courts to enforce adherence to dogma.

We do not jail people who think Elvis is still alive. We do not wreck the careers of people who claim to have been taken for rides in UFOs. We respect the First Amendment rights of those who choose to believe in the Loch Ness Monster and Big Foot.

Only in this one area of inquiry is the full weight of government and the courts brought to bear to ensure that no questions ever dare be asked.

Why are they so terrified of a question?

What are they so afraid of?

The FRANKLIN SCANDAL

The FRANKLIN SCANDAL is the story of a nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. The ring’s pimps were a pair of Republican powerbrokers who used Boys Town as a pedophiliac reservoir, had access to the highest levels of our government, and connections to the CIA.

Nebraska legislators nearly exposed the ring in 1990, but its unveiling had the potential to produce seismic political aftershocks: a rash of deaths and a full court press by federal and local law enforcement effected an immaculate cover-up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This video was scheduled to air on The Discovery Channel, but members of Congress threatened tough new laws controlling the cable TV industry if it aired, and the video was pulled even though it was already listed in the TV Guide.

Khazaria—The Myth of Anti-Semitism Exposed at Last!!

"This was written before the full extent of the holocaust was known, but that does not alter the fact that the large majority of surviving Jews in the world is of Eastern European - and thus perhaps mainly of Khazar - origin. If so, this would mean that their ancestors came not from the Jordan but from the Volga, not from Canaan but from the Caucasus, once believed to be the cradle of the Aryan race; and that genetically they are more closely related to the Hun, Uigur and Magyar tribes than to the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Should this turn out to be the case, then the term "anti-Semitism" would become void of meaning, based on a misapprehension shared by both the killers and their victims.

More Bailout Propaganda, This time from GRETCHEN MORGENSON

New York Times Online | Saturday Feb 7 2009 | GRETCHEN MORGENSON

JUST in case you missed it: The Congressional Oversight Panel monitoring the Treasury Department’s bailout of broken banks — the Troubled Asset Relief Program — reported last week that Henry M. Paulson Jr.’s team at Treasury paid significantly more for the assets it bought from banks than they were worth when the deal was announced in the fall.

[...] the report said. “This disparity translates into a $78 billion shortfall for the first $254 billion in TARP funds that were spent.”

More taxpayer money down the drain, alas. And all the more reason to focus closely on executive pay restrictions at any bank that receives TARP funding.

While living, the victims suffered from disorders such as epilepsy, amnesia, Alzheimer's disease, chronic headaches and psychosis.

''This is still a very big spending bill,'' Kyl said during a rare Saturday session on the Hill. ''You can't fix it by simply shaving a little bit off.''

He also sought to bring Republicans into the mix, pledging to listen to them, praising the late-Friday negotiations.

"A False Premise"

The closer you examine it, the clearer it is that neoconservatism, in large part, is simply about enabling the most irredentist elements in Israel and sustaining a permanent war against anyone or any country who disagrees with the Israeli right. That's the conclusion I've been forced to these last few years. And to insist that America adopt exactly the same constant-war-as-survival that Israelis have been slowly forced into. Cheney saw America as Netanyahu sees Israel: a country built for permanent war and the "tough, mean, dirty, nasty business" of waging it (with a few war crimes to keep the enemy on their toes).

Record 19 Million U.S. Homes Stood Vacant in 2008

Kathleen M. Howley | Bloomberg.com | Tue- Feb 3, 2009

Feb. 3 (Bloomberg) -- A record 19 million U.S. houses stood empty at the end of 2008 as banks seized homes faster than they could sell them and prices continued to fall.

Vacant homes in the fourth quarter increased by 6.7 percent from the same period a year ago, the U.S. Census Bureau said in a report today. The vacancy rate, the share of empty homes for sale, rose to 2.9 percent in the quarter, the most in data that goes back to 1956.

Why is America Attacking Islam?

Attacking Islam, Revisited
An Update of a Published Article On March 21, 1994

One intelligent question we are asked over and over again and must be answered: ?Why is America warring against one Islamic country after another? Is it because Arabs are sub-human, as Israelis claim, or are Muslims terrorists as the American press subtly suggests; or, is it an anti-Islamic agenda among our nation?s leaders that they do not share with us?

$36, 000 membership fee to join Clinton foundation

$36,000 buys criticism for RPI
Amid layoffs, fee to Clinton group spurs questions on $1.1M for Kenya
By MARC PARRY, Staff writer
First published in print: Saturday, January 31, 2009

TROY-- Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is defending payments to Bill Clinton's foundation as new details emerge about its plans to invest far more in an African education collaboration linked to one of the foundation's ventures.

RPI drew criticism from a faculty leader and an alumnus when the institute surfaced on a long-secret list of foundation contributors that Clinton released in December. Rensselaer later said the money reflected not a donation but $36,000 in "membership fees" to join the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI).

PrezBO's press room "Kiss my toes" photo op

Obamanocchio #1
by Michael Dawson / January 27th, 2009

President Obama made a “surprise visit” to the White House Press Room on Thursday. Undoubtedly, this was not an impulse or an accident, but a calculated attempt to create a new kind of photo-op. The idea was almost certainly to make news about the newness of this President not hiding from public-minded questioning. The assumption must have been that the WH press corp would be so bowled over by Obama’s entrance that they’d fawn and gush over him and pump out puff pieces proclaiming his newness and openness.

Turns out, the reporters took advantage of the unheard-of chance by actually asking Obama a question!

ATLANTA --- Another bombshell was revealed Wednesday morning as Georgia lawmakers heard testimony regarding the ongoing peanut salmonella crisis.

State Agriculture Deputy Commissioner Oscar Garrison told members of the House Agriculture and Consumer Affairs Committee that the Food and Drug Administration had to force a South Georgia company to turn over its own inspection records using the Federal Anti-Terrorism law.

The decision to play recordings of the phone calls, which were intercepted by federal agents, followed intense negotiations with federal prosecutors in Chicago, who are pursuing a separate criminal corruption case against Mr. Blagojevich even as the impeachment trial here goes on.

FDIC Failed Bank List

This is a link to the FDIC that lists the publicly acknowledged failed banks. We're off to a good clip already in 2009 compared to 2008 which was itself a notable year for bank failures, also noted on this web page.

The unacknowledged failed banks are not listed on this FDIC web page. The unacknowledged failed banks are the ones on life support through Treasury Department give-away programs.

The unacknowledged list would likely include about 95% of U.S. banks, and surely every large bank in the U.S.

It is perhaps remarkable to note, that when bank finances fail, regardless the reason, and the banking executives are facing losing their jobs, they simply go to the government for more money with which to pay salaries and bonuses.

Obama's Inaugural Speech Augurs Badly for Change

Listening to Obama's inaugural speech impressed solely by its obvious continuity of the process that Bush and Cheney helped along it's way. The Project for a New American Century was in full swing as Obama parroted the aims and dreams of Zbigniew Brezinski, his foreign policy adviser and mentor. One pawn was replaced by another on "The Grand Chessboard" and, after the slight inconvenience of a Presidential election, the battle for Eurasia and the quest for control of America continues.

Paul Volcker, the former Federal Reserve Board chairman, told the panel that the cost of fixing the banks would cost several trillion dollars.

No mention was made of the short and cute housekeeper, and, illegal alien, Tiny Tim was playing house with for a while.

Mr. Geithner [...] faces questions over his recent payment of $34,000 in back taxes for Social Security and Medicare that he failed to pay as a senior official of the International Monetary Fund from 2001 to 2003, including a small payment in 2004 after he left.

The question that may never go away: Who really is Barack Obama?

The question that may never go away: Who really is Barack Obama?

In his autobiography, "Dreams From My Fathers", Barack Obama writes of taking a job at some point after graduating from Columbia University in 1983. He describes his employer as "a consulting house to multinational corporations" in New York City, and his functions as a "research assistant" and "financial writer".

The odd part of Obama's story is that he doesn't mention the name of his employer. However, a New York Times story of 2007 identifies the company as Business International Corporation.10 Equally odd is that the Times did not remind its readers that the newspaper itself had disclosed in 1977 that Business International had provided cover for four CIA employees in various countries between 1955 and 1960.11
