Yahoo CEO fears defying NSA could mean prison

Posted on by Jim

THE PERILS OF FASCISM DEPT. Isn’t it ironic that the CEO of one of America’s largest corporations acknowledges that charges of treason may await any corporate executive that defies the National Security State? Fascism is defined as the blending of state and corporate power and nowhere in the world is such blending more evident than in the good old USA. But the lesson of history is that lambs who get into bed with wolves risk being eaten. The fate of some German business leaders during Hitler’s Third Reich proved this. Perhaps it is time to put aside the phony War on Terrorism and protect individual liberties by returning to Constitutional ...

From Hiroshima to Syria, the enemy whose name we dare not speak

Posted on by Jim

REAL HOMEGROWN TERRORISM DEPT. Perhaps it’s time to look at who runs the real terrorist nation of the world. As Pogo the Possum said, “We have met the enemy and he is us.” Jim From Hiroshima to Syria, the enemy whose name we dare not speak By John Pilger Informationclearinghouse September 10, 2013 On my wall is the front page of Daily Express of September 5, 1945 and the words: “I write this as a warning to the world.” So began Wilfred Burchett’s report from Hiroshima. It was the scoop of the century. For his lone, perilous journey that defied the US occupation authorities, Burchett was pilloried, not least by his embedded colleagues. He warned that ...

1,140 WTC 9/11 responders have cancer — and doctors say that number will grow

Posted on by Jim

Here’s another “conspiracy theory” that has proven true. Following the horrendous attacks of 9/11, many persons questioned the polluted air in lower Manhatten. However, Christine Todd Whitman, then head of the government’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), told a compliant corporate media, “We have not seen any reason — any readings that have indicated any health hazard.” Later, Dr. Cate Jenkins, a senior scientist at the EPA, told CBS News that EPA officials knew the air quality was dangerous with highly caustic asbestos dust but covered up this information. The controversy continued for years. Now comes this story. Jim   1,140 WTC 9/11 responders have cancer — and doctors say that number will ...

Why the Latest NSA Leak Is the Scariest of All

Posted on by Jim

NO SECURE ACCESS (NSA) DEPT. As more and more information is revealed about the close association of the National Security Agency (NSA) and the major American and British computer companies, it is apparent that Big Brother has gone hog wild. "I would strongly recommend against anyone trusting their private data to a company with physical ties to the United States," lamented Ladar Levison, founder of the small secure email provider Lavabit, which closed rather than agree to government pressure to disclose its clients’ message. This is just further evidence that the government feels in order to protest our freedom, it must destroy it. It is also quite ironic that the ...

What is the end-game in the Middle East?

Posted on by Jim

FOLLOW THE MONEY DEPT. What’s going on in the Middle East? There is a game plan first articulated back in the 1970s by Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Chaney when they headed the national security team under President Gerald R. Ford. This plan involved increasing US troops in the Middle East to gain control over the oil supplies. In this article, veteran journalist Jon Rappoport humorously, but correctly, identifies the corporate interests that seek hegemony over that part of the world. Educate yourself today or risk World War III for the sake of the corporations tomorrow.

The Crisis in Syria: Shock and Awe, Suez and The Cuban Missile Crisis Redux

Posted on by Jim

DUCK AND COVER DEPT. Missiles in Cuba…atrocities in South Vietnam…babies thrown from incubators…weapons of mass destruction…poison gas…mini-holocausts all around. Sound familiar? Same old rhetoric from the same old fascists – whether National Socialists (Nazis) or Marxist Socialists. The only real question is if the American people are going to allow themselves to be dragged into another tragic war – perhaps even risking nuclear Armageddon – by the machinations of the leaders imposed upon them by the corporate mass media.

PSYCHOPATHS RUN AMOK DEPT.

The United States, which once fought to stop wars, now starts them. How far have we fallen?

FOLLOW THE MONEY DEPT.

Posted on by Jim

FOLLOW THE MONEY DEPT. Yep, the old journalism adage is “Follow the money.” And this is easy enough to do with the help of public service organizations such as the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan, independent and nonprofit group that tracks government and campaign money. If money is the criteria for determining who will be elected in November, then the odds are with Mitt Romney. Just compare the amounts in the lists below and see where the Big Bucks are going. But don’t look to Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrats for an alternative. Apparently, the Big Bucks are being hidden in 2012, but just go to the bottom ...
