Treasure hunter found £1m haul on first outing

David Booth, 35, bought the £240 detector online because he thought it “might be fun” to look for treasure and struck gold just five days after it was delivered.

The safari park warden parked his car by field in Stirlingshire and made the find after taking just a few paces.

Obama’s Outreach to Muslim World Teetering

From Pakistan – where Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got an earful of growing anti-U.S. sentiment last week – to the West Bank and East Jerusalem – where Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has successfully defied Washington’s demands that he freeze Jewish settlement activity – events appear to have strayed far from the president’s original game plan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Perhaps what is characterized as Obama's "game plan" for the Middle East is something radically different from what the writer of this article has outlined.

What Obama is actually achieving in the Middle East is what one could have imagined would be happening in a third term of George Bush; continued instability through escalated occupation in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Israel destroying the Palestinians, and a war with Iran which could very well involve Russia on Iran's side.

The US is desperately broke, with many in power believing that another global war will get the US out of its financial predicaments. They also think that it will distract many Americans from the reality that their lives have been destroyed economically through no fault of their own, with good-paying jobs having been outsourced, and no jobs to go to except those paying minimum wage.

But unlike other times when the US used war as a means to get out of its financial predicaments, we don't have the manufacturing capabilities to support a victory in another global war, because manufacturing has been largely outsourced.

ADL Applauds Itself For Hate Bill Victory

"After President Obama signed the federal hate crimes bill, the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith- the world's premier Jewish supremacist group-gave itself most of the credit.

"For 12 long years we have worked hard with coalition partners to build the case in Washington that this law was not just necessary, but vital to ensure that all victims of hate crimes would be covered"

A little Gotter and a Little Dammerung

I heard some talk about who was responsible for the Baghdad bombing. It was obvious that they knew nothing but that didn’t stop the speculation, which was all about the usual suspects, meaning whatever that means. Watching the news I came to one dominant conclusion. The news is the information mouthpiece for a world wide criminal organization whose intention is disinformation and the persecution and slander of the competition. The people working for them know that they are working for a criminal organization. In former times it might not have been so clear cut but it is now.

Social Decay in America: The 'I Didn't Do It' Culture

“The gap between our citizens and our Government has never been so wide. The people are looking for honest answers, not easy answers; clear leadership, not false claims and evasiveness and politics as usual..What you see too often in Washington and elsewhere around the country is a system of government that seems incapable of action. You see a Congress twisted and pulled in every direction by hundreds of well financed and powerful special interests. You see every extreme position defended to the last vote, almost to the last breath by one unyielding group or another.

Obama Is a Pawn of the New World Order

Obama Is a Pawn of the New World Order

It is obvious from Obama's appointments to positions regarding foreign relations that part of the deal with the "powers that be" is that he continue to promote the "fake war against terror", the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in order to secure the oil and natural gas resources and the continued stealing of the remaining resources of this country by the Federal Reserve Bank.

Ukraine doctors say it's pneumonic plague

Yushchenko called on to help Ukraine: Unknown virus is killing people
Publication time: 1 November 2009, 23:39
In last 24 hours, an unknown virus (presumed pneumonic plague) infected another 37 thousand and killed 12 more people. The authorities deny that this is pneumonic plague, and insist that people die from influenza, pneumonia and ARI....but doctors say on the basis of clinical data and the rapidity of the epidemic, that it is pneumonic plague...According to unofficial data, "in Ukraine over the past week about 1500 people have already died. As noted by some doctors, the reason - pneumonic plague. High temperatures from the first day, a burning sensation in the chest, the desire to drink cold and nausea - all of these symptoms are frightening. People die within few days.

When it Comes to Israel, New Yorker Magazine Censors the Word 'Censored'

Censoring the word "censored"? Sadly, not a joke from a late-night comedy show. The New Yorker magazine staff recently censored the word "censored" in my November 2 ad for www.USMediaAndIsrael.com, a blog that looks at how the New York Times and other corporate media stifle their coverage of Israel.

In addition to my brief story, I also share a copy of the home-drawn political cartoon that the New York Times had censored, plus the backstory of how it came to be.

Easily Understood Explanation of Current Banking Crisis

Easily Understood Explanation of Current Banking Crisis

Today's banking crisis is the THIRD trillion dollar plus
US-caused financial meltdown in the last twenty years.

Each one of these crises came into being through the same basic
mechanism...the fraudulent over-valuing of financial assets by
Wall Street - with a "wink and a nod" (and sometimes a lot more)
from the White House and Congress.

The fraudulently valued assets stimulate the economy, impart
the illusion of health and then, inevitably, the fraud goes
too far and the whole house of card comes painfully crashing
back to earth.

The three trillion dollar plus frauds were:

Fraud #1: The so-called "Savings and Loan Crisis" of the late 80s

Fraud #2: The so-called "Tech Bubble" of the late 90s

India is preparing for possible war with China and Pakistan

India is preparing the military for possible war with China and Pakistan. India and Russia have agreed two military pacts, including a 10-year deal on weapons, aircraft, and maintenance contracts potentially worth at least $5 billion, Indian defense officials said. India plans to spend $30 billion over the next five years to buy modern weapons systems and attack planes.

The agreement will certainly help as Russia needs a market and India needs a strategic reassurance to sort out relations that were going sour. India also wants to use the renewed focus on Russia as a counterweight to China, while a strong presence in South Asia could help Moscow keep an eye on China. India fears China is trying to encircle it as they jostle for resources and global influence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Perhaps, as in the US, a war is considered by the Indian leadership as a way of distracting its population from the massive societal inequities brought about by its growth.

Goldman takes on new role: taking away people's homes

Goldman spent years buying hundreds of thousands of subprime mortgages, many of them from some of the more unsavory lenders in the business, and packaging them into high-yield bonds. Now that the bottom has fallen out of that market, Goldman finds itself in a different role: as the big banker that takes homes away from folks such as the Beckers.

Joining other Wall Street firms that bought millions of subprime mortgages, Goldman companies have gone to courts from California to Florida seeking approval to foreclose on the homes of middle- and lower-income Americans who couldn't keep up with their loans' soaring monthly payments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These subprime loans, with their teaser rates which were going to balloon way out of control, should have been regulated.

But regulating the banks was something the former, and current, administration had - and have - no interest in doing.

Webmaster's Opinion on Obama-Front Man for New World Order

Webmaster's Opinion on Obama-Front Man for New World Order

Since the creation of the CIA by Congress in 1947, the CIA grew quickly into a very powerful secret element of this government. At the end of his two terms as president, President Eisenhower warned against the increasing power of the military-industrial complex.

What President Eisenhower failed to warn against was the insidious, well hidden power of the private central bankers of the world, namely the Federal Reserve Bank and the Bank of England. Neither the Federal Reserve Bank nor the Bank of England are departments of the federal government. Each is a cartel of private banks. In fact, to the best of my knowledge, about 75% of the Federal Reserve Bank is owned by the Bank of England.

Reasons to Doubt the Official Story about the 9/11 Attacks

Reasons to Doubt the Official Story about the 9/11 Attacks
The Bush Regime

by Andrew Mills

The more you study the facts and the circumstantial evidence surrounding the 9/11 attacks, the more you doubt the official explanation of the attacks given in the 9/11 Commission Report. Most all the necessary information is, or has been, available through the major media. It's just a matter of pulling it all together and organizing the data. When you do that, you are left with major doubts about the official story and you begin to suspect that some of our officials may have been involved, at least in the sense that they had fore-knowledge of the attacks and just let them happen.

(CINCINNATI, Ohio) - In John Farmers book:The Ground Truth: The Story Behind Americas Defense on 9/11, the author builds the inescapably convincing case that the official version... is almost entirely untrue...

The 9/11 Commission now tells us that the official version of 9/11 was based on false testimony and documents and is almost entirely untrue. The details of this massive cover-up are carefully outlined in a book by John Farmer, who was the Senior Counsel for the 9/11 Commission.

Oops! Civilian in joyride on fighter jet pulls ejection switch by mistake but still lands without a scratch

A civilian passenger in an air force display plane got the shock of his life when he reached for something to steady himself during a mid-air manoeuvre - and accidentally activated the ejector seat.

The man was instantly fired through the jet's perspex canopy and was blasted 100 metres into the sky by the rocket-powered emergency chair.

Experts said the man was lucky to escape unharmed following the bizarre incident, which happened last week in South Africa.

CIT Board Approves Chapter 11 Filing

CIT Group Inc. filed for bankruptcy Sunday afternoon, said people familiar with the matter, in a high-stakes restructuring intended to keep the doors open at one of the U.S.'s largest small-business lenders.

CIT's board met early Sunday afternoon, these people said, and the company sought Chapter 11 protection in New York a few hours later. The lender expected to have considerable support from creditors for its "prepackaged" reorganization, which could allow CIT to have its plan approved quickly and emerge from bankruptcy by the end of the year, other people familiar with the matter said.

Pa. Woman Offers Sex For World Series Tickets

Investigators say Finkelstein posted an ad on the Web site Craigslist that stated she was a die-hard Phillies fan and buxom blonde in desperate need of two World Series tickets.

Police say her posting went on to say the price was negotiable and that "I'm the creative type! Maybe we can help each other!"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, investigators in Philadelphia have arrested so many robbers, rapists, and murderers that they have time to sit around the police station reading Craigslist?

This clearly comes under the heading of "Don't you bozos have real crimes to deal with?"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Thinking Americans have every reason for their anger and skepticism at the way our government has been run.

Americans to truly ready to throw off the shackles of a dysfunctional two-party system which only works for party officials, but not at all for We the People.

Marijuana growers upend hard-luck California town

Reporting from Hayfork, Calif. — Education has long been preached as a way to keep kids away from drugs. It's the walk to school that has Supt. Tom Barnett worried.

This hardscrabble Northern California town has become a hotbed for medical marijuana farming. Kids stroll much of the year past pungent plants flourishing in gardens and alleys. The red-and-black clad Timberjacks football team moved its halftime huddle on a recent Friday night to avoid the odor of marijuana smoke wafting over the gridiron from nearby houses. Some students talk openly of farming pot after graduation, about the only opportunity in this depressed timber town.

Bail-Out and the FED Banking Scam

Who do the banks owe money to? Are those hedge funds affiliated with
the very banks that were bailed out? Prof. Chossudovsky explains. He
emphasizes the bailouts will not help the crisis, but will exacerbate
it. He explains that to pay for Obama's budget defecits, public roads
and parks will be sold off to private companies and banks, who will
charge user fees to citizens, and that these user fees will be used to
pay back the bailout money to the government. In short, the government
is helping the banks finance their own debt. He also says that bailed
out banks are using the bailout money to buy up assets in the real
economy ( such as industry, tech, & airline stocks) at rock bottom
prices, which will dramatically change the ownership structure in

US Workers Starved Into Service

It’s hard not to wonder what would happen if, instead of dutifully reading from the Pentagon’s script on October 13, the media had done their job and informed the public about the real nature of the ‘service’ that potential enlistees were signing up for. Maybe if they had, those recruitment officers would not have been quite so busy recruiting – and stealing the lives of – unsuspecting young people in desperate need of employment.

Report slams bank links to clusterbomb production

Leading banks have funded arms manufacturers, whose products include cluster bombs, to the tune of $5 billion in the past two years, despite an international accord to ban such weapons, a study said Thursday.

The top five loan providers were Bank of America, Citigroup , JP Morgan, Barclays and Goldman Sachs, the study said.

Webmaster's Commentary:

US Rich-Poor Income Gap World's Most Extreme

Income inequality in the US is now the most extreme of all countries. The 2008 OECD report 'Income Distribution and Poverty in OECD Countries' concludes that the US is the country with the highest inequality and poverty rate across the OECD and that since 2000 nowhere has there been such a stark rise in income inequality as in the US. The OECD finds that in the US the distribution of wealth is even more unequal than the distribution of income.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is, when the American people really wake up, and figure the amount of injury done to their lives by this and the preceding administration, how is that anger going to be expressed, and against whom?

SWINE FLU VACCINE OCT 2009: LICENSED AND UNTESTED

Great article about Swine Flu.

This has been a big week for swine flu vaccines. With the money machine in full swing to get the untested swine flu vaccine out to the public ASAP, it's hard to keep up with the level of deception in mainstream media. But we'll give it a try.

One final important revelation about the AP article, and perhaps the agenda of the Director of the NIH:

"Younger children simply don't have as mature an immune system," Fauci explained. "So a first dose of vaccine against a flu strain they've never experienced acts as an introduction for their immune system, and a booster shortly thereafter revs up that immune response."

New US Bases on the Black Sea

The emergence of NATO bases on the Black Sea comes in addition to the military installations the West already has on the Baltic Sea and which effectively puts Russia in a bind.

In another alarming sign, cadets at the West Point military academy are now undergoing a crash course of Russian language and culture. Just like they started learning Arabic three years prior to the US-led invasion of Iraq.

Preparing to grab the Caspian oil wealth, Washington will do this leaning on its bases in Romania and Bulgaria and by stoking up instability in the Caucasus. Why? To be able send its peacekeepers there to ensure the safe transportation of Caspian oil and gas. And here the American contingent in Romania and Bulgaria may come in very handy indeed.

National Wave of Privatization Scandals and Disasters Ignored By Media, Concealed From Public

The real costs of the $17 trillion bankster bailout, along with the untold trillions more spent for wars in the Middle East and America's global empire have come home. States and counties can no longer pay for the ordinary functions of government. Cities and towns can't repair streets and bridges, maintain water systems or fund libraries. Since the war and the bailouts are massively unpopular, you could say the ultimate cause of it all is a lack of democracy.

But the solution local and state governments, encouraged by Wall Street and the business class automatically reach for is even less democratic, and far more costly. That so-called solution is privatization of public assets and even the core functions of government.

Obama’s Defense Bill Restarts Gitmo Tribunals

With less than three months left to make good on his promise to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay within one year and virtually no effort made so far to do so, President Barack Obama has signed the military funding bill which will effectively restart military tribunals at the facility.

Today’s move finalizes a plan concocted by the president in May, which would make a handful of cosmetic changes to the tribunal system, giving detainees a little control over their legal counsel and barring certain types of hearsay evidence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unflipping believable!

The only reason for military tribunals is that most of the cases against these incarcerated prisoners of war would fall completely apart, under normal American jurisprudence.

Prosecutors Turn Tables on Student Journalists

For more than a decade, classes of students at Northwestern University’s journalism school have been scrutinizing the work of prosecutors and the police. The investigations into old crimes, as part of the Medill Innocence Project, have helped lead to the release of 11 inmates, the project’s director says, and an Illinois governor once cited those wrongful convictions as he announced he was commuting the sentences of everyone on death row.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is intimidation, pure and simple.

This is an attempt at vindictive payback for the fact that 11 inmates were cleared by the work of this university team, demonstrating the glaringly sloppy work on the part of the prosecution staff which got these people convicted in the first place.

Do you love humanity enough to stop illegal US wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran?

Most people claim the religious/spiritual/philosophical value of love to be highly important to their self-expression. Let’s explore the virtue of love and inquire into its application regarding current US wars.

An absolutely beginners’ test for love is if you care minimally enough to act in prevention of a violent attack against another person, with all likelihood that attack will cause severe pain and suffering upon the victim. Americans have been in the presence of such a test for the current wars with Iraq, Afghanistan, and rhetoric for more war in Iran. An important part of our understanding is being clear about the truth of our government’s claims justifying these wars as helpful for US national security and/or helpful for the countries’ populations we’ve invaded.

The Pentagon's Dirty Bombers: Depleted Uranium in the USA

The Nuclear Regulator Commission will be holding hearings tomorrow and Wednesday in Hawaii on an application by the US Army for a permit to have depleted uranium at its Pohakuloa Training Area, a vast stretch of flat land in what’s called the “saddle” between the sacred mountains of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea on Hawaii’s Big Island, and at the Schofield Barracks on the island of Oahu. In fact, what the Army is asking for is a permit to leave in place the DU left over from years of test firing of M101 mortar “spotting rounds,” that each contained close to half a pound of depleted uranium (DU). The Army, which originally denied that any DU weapons had been used at either location, now says that as many as 2000 rounds of M101 DU mortars might have been fired at Pohakuloa alone.

Dead Billionaire Jeffry Picower Gave Large Sums to Jewish Causes

he Picower Foundation, based in Palm Beach, Fla., is the largest yet to close in the wake of the Bernard Madoff scandal.

Started by Barbara Picower and her husband, investor Jeffry Picower, the foundation -- which in 2002 gave $50 million to start a brain research center -- had almost all of its assets invested with Madoff, according to the New York Times.

The foundation, which is listed as the 71st largest in the nation by the Council on Foundations, had 552,046,532 in charitable assets in 2007, according to its latest 990 tax filing.

Picower also lost money, but recovered much of it, in the securities fraud of Ivan Boesky.

In 2007, the foundation gave away almost $2.5 million to Jewish and Jewish-realted charities.

Chicago is considering leasing its water system to help fix the budget.

Could it happen here in Chicago? It already has nearby. Homer Glen in Will County relies on Lake Michigan water, but the supply comes from a German-owned firm. Locals say there's a lot more than water going down the drain.

It's a vital resource you can't live without. But in Homer Glen, the question is can you afford water. Residents say rates are breaking the bank

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This kind of thing is happening all over the country.

The last official act of any government is to loot the public.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs: An Emotional Response

We are talking about arms and legs and heads being ripped from the bodies of women and children -- actual human beings, being slaughtered in our names, day after day. And for what purpose? Every ill and evil that the war purports to address is actually made worse by our violent occupation. Eight years down, and the Taliban is stronger, Pakistan is far more unstable, thousands more civilians have been killed, religious extremism in the region is stronger than ever, the opium trade is more virulent and more devastating, brutal warlords rule with impunity … the list goes on and on. And all we are being offered by our new "progressive" administration is more of the same.

The Edifice Crumbles

The American Empire of today was born in the Balkans, during the 1990s interventions in Bosnia and Serbia. It was there that the concept of "benevolent global hegemony" was tested and cloaked in the rhetoric of "humanitarian intervention" and "preventing genocide." Last year, starting with the establishment of the "Independent state of Kosovo" and culminating with the installation of a client regime in Serbia, was the pinnacle of Empire’s success, a "victory" that stood out from the colossal failures of Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Great American Arm-Twist in Afghanistan

Mr. Karzai had vigorously resisted the panel’s findings, and seriously considered overriding them and declaring himself the winner. It was only Senator Kerry’s relentless efforts, and a round-the-clock lobbying press by American and European leaders, that staved off political disaster.

Diplomats in Kabul said afterward that the senator made it clear to Mr. Karzai that if he refused to accept the election results, domestic support for his government, in the United States and Europe, would collapse.

Richard Land Flip-Flops on Nazi Apology

One week after apologizing for comparing Democratic leaders to the Nazis, a prominent Southern Baptist leader has reneged on his promise to stop using such comparisons.

Despite apologizing in a letter dated Oct. 14 to Abraham H. Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), Land backed away from that apology in a Baptist Press article on Oct. 21.

Two Suicide Car Bombs Hit Baghdad, Killing Dozens

BAGHDAD — A pair of suicide car bombs exploded almost simultaneously in downtown Baghdad Sunday, targeting two government buildings and killing at least 65 people and wounding 250, according to an official in the Ministry of the Interior who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press. The official said the toll may rise even more.

The two buildings targeted Sunday, the Baghdad Provincial Council building and the Ministry of Justice building, were both located on busy Haifa Street less than a quarter mile apart.

When Ancient Artifacts Become Political Pawns

Egypt’s chief archaeologist, Zahi Hawass, announced that his country wanted its queen handed back forthwith, unless Germany could prove that the 3,500-year-old bust of Akhenaten’s wife wasn’t spirited illegally out of Egypt nearly a century ago.
Mr. Hawass also recently fired a shot at France, demanding the Louvre return five fresco fragments it purchased in 2000 and 2003 from a gallery and at auction. They belonged to a 3,200-year-old tomb near Luxor and had been in storage at the museum.
But Jewish groups and prominent French and German intellectuals (not the Israeli government, though) campaigned against Mr. Hosny. When asked in Egypt’s Parliament last year about the presence of Israeli books in Alexandria’s library, Mr. Hosny said: “Let’s burn these books. If there are any, I will burn them myself before you.”

Burger King (Japan) offers Windows 7 Whopper with 7 beef patties for $7.77 (satire)

What do you get when you combine a good operating system with a ridiculously bad idea of a burger? Burger King's news "Windows 7 Whopper," made with 7 beef patties and sold for ¥777 (Yen).

The seven-decker processed beef burger clocks in at 1,000 calories, reports FoxNews. It's offered only for 7 days as part of a publicity stunt to publicize the launch of Windows 7, the new PC operating system from Microsoft.

===

Perhaps it's a warning. First reports on Windows 7 are that it's the same old sh!t with a candy coating. Windows 7 is definitely less stable than Windows XP and there were known security issues even as it launched.

Passing through the Kingdom of the Prince of the Air

Here’s a simple fact. There’s enough, for everyone on the planet and more, to have whatever food and shelter they require. There is enough work for all the hands and minds that wish employment. There’s free medical for everyone who needs it and money to pay for it without batting an eye. All you’ve got to do is stop the engines of war and the obscene money sucking machines of the vampire bat bankers. The rich could still be rich and the poor could still be poor. You’re always going to have poor people, even Jesus the Christ said as much. Didn’t he say that the “poor ye always have with you”, or something to that effect? I think the same applies to the rich. There’s just not as many of them.

George W. Bush set to become motivational speaker

He left office with the US embroiled in two wars, a Great Recession and with his approval rating a toxic 22 per cent. So the next stage in his career is obvious. George W Bush — who last year inspired millions of people to vote Democrat — is about to become a highly-paid motivational speaker.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I thought for a moment that this had to be some sort of sick joke.

It is not.

It does, however, lead to one inescapable conclusion: this man is absolutely out of his mind.

A Few Good Kids?

In the past few years, the military has mounted a virtual invasion into the lives of young Americans. Using data mining, stealth websites, career tests, and sophisticated marketing software, the Pentagon is harvesting and analyzing information on everything from high school students' GPAs and SAT scores to which video games they play. Before an Army recruiter even picks up the phone to call a prospect like Travers, the soldier may know more about the kid's habits than do his own parents.

Review: “Fall of the Republic,” an Alex Jones’ political & economic documentary

(Hyperlinks and video live at source)

By the end of high school, all young adults are instructed to understand and apply the scientific method to match data with hypotheses to explain the data. Most adults report they are able to do this under realistic conditions; that is, they have rational explanations for reality on a day-to-day basis, and especially for important issues. Daily, more adults are focusing their competent intellects upon our largest political and economic issues. Daily, more adults are constructing hypotheses of intentional destruction of our American rights, values, and economy as the only rational explanation of such gross malfeasance with US government and economic policies.
