Suggestiveness

Posted on Updated on

Nobody, I think, ought to read poetry, or look at pictures or statues, who cannot find a great deal more in them than the poet or artist has actually expressed. Their highest merit is suggestiveness.”

-Nathanial Hawthorne

The numbers below can’t really be verified. I’m guessing they are low. They still suggest …

The total cost to America of its wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, plus the related military operations in Pakistan, is set to exceed $4 trillion – more than three times the sum so far authorized by Congress in the decade since the 9/11 attacks

Would anyone dare suggest that Rick Perry is a traitor and a puppet for Israel? “Yes we can!”

“Wow! Not even a whiff of a notion of the Presidency, and his lips are already lotioned to kiss ass.”

Puppet talk …

As an American citizen and governor of one of its largest states, I write to applaud your recent efforts to warn and discourage those who have supported or plan to support a flotilla intended to interfere with Israel’s maritime blockade of the Gaza Strip,” Perry wrote in a June 28 letter.

“More importantly, I write to encourage you to aggressively pursue all available legal remedies to enjoin and prevent these illegal actions, and to prosecute any who may elect to engage in them in spite of your preemptive efforts,”

Rick Perry or Michele Bachmann?  Decisions, decisions …  

Do the Jews not realize that the Gaza flotilla is a publicity action, and all their threats, hoaxes, sabotage, etc, are just increasing the publicity?  Their problem would go away if they just politely allowed the boats to dock and efficiently and quietly aided the unloading of the cargo.

  Greek suggestions …

 The Faces of Humanity

One has the face of a chicken and is sweating,
And one the face of a dancing queen
Alone at midnight;
Nourish her
If you can.
One has the face of
A middle aged professor terrified
Of losing his job
If he says the wrong thing
And who has lately
Begun to realize he has something alien
Living in his soul.

The smiling, perspiring face of the
Apache helicopter pilot just after pressing
A button that sent
A missile
Into a crowded market—
The same Apache helicopter pilot who heard about
God at a base revival meeting
From a general who stood in a
Yellow spotlight
And told them that
God
Hated Muslims.  (more – Richard Edmondson}

Stay Human

Posted on Updated on

Freedom Flotilla

In a world of ever increasing inhumanity and insanity, staying human becomes the ultimate act of courage.


Of course the Flotilla is a political provocation

Yes, out solidarity is political. Yes, it is provocative. And unlike the racism and oppression of Zionism and its enablers, there is nothing shameful about it.

A little refresher course in Palestinian history for our talking points in the coming days may be useful. Neutralizing the propaganda of media and criminal governments is one small way of staying human.

Countering State Sponsored Terrorism

Posted on Updated on

It’s no surprise or coincidence that only days after Obama announces his ‘flexible’ plan for withdrawing troops from Afghanistan that there are ‘terrorist’ attacks in that country. A most heinous one occurred 40 miles southeast of Kabul near the Pakistan border that killed dozens and destroyed a hospital built by the U.S.

The Taliban denied involvement and if true it leads to finger pointing towards the usual suspects, CIA and Mossad paid killers. Motive and means comes to mind.

It’s also no coincidence that this attack on civilians comes at the same time that the International Conference on Terrorism Gets Underway in Iran and among the participants are Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari, Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Sudanese president Omer Hassan al-Bashir who were threatened by Washington if they attended. The U.S. zionist controlled mainstream media seems to be avoiding reporting on this as if it is not happening.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad can be as repetitive as the rest of us in getting his points across and is justified in doing so. He speaks to root causes.

From Haaretz:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Saturday the real dimensions of the September 2001 terrorist attacks on the U.S. as well as genocide in the Second World War should be exposed in order to be able to stop terrorism.

“If the black box of the 9/11 incident and Holocaust were opened, then some of the truth would be exposed, but the United States does not allow this,” Ahmadinejad said at the two-day international summit on terrorism in Tehran.

The president said both the Holocaust and the 2001 terror attacks were pretexts by the U.S. to put down Muslims and at the same time make huge economic benefits by spreading panic in the region. Ahmadinejad has often questioned what he called accepted truths.

He said the roots of terrorism should be explored before it can be fought effectively, and blamed U.S. militarism for causing security to deteriorate.{more}

From Press TV: 

“Some believe that the motive behind the September 11 attacks was to ensure the safety of Israel, foment insecurity in regional countries, divert the US public opinion from the chaotic economic situation in the country and fill the pockets of uncivilized belligerent capitalists,” President Ahmadinejad said in an address to a two-day anti-terrorism conference on Saturday, IRIB website reported.

“Two years after the incident that provided an excuse for the invasion of two countries (Afghanistan and Iraq), led to the killing, injuring and displacing of millions… the US government, under pressure from the public opinion, tasked a group to investigate the reason behind the attacks. But the real truth has been kept from the Americans and the world,” he added.

President Ahmadinejad went on to say that part of the truth might be revealed if a true investigation to the 9/11 attacks is allowed by the United States. {more}

:
Actually we’re not looking for only part of the truth. We want the whole enchilada. We will continue repeating the call for justice until we can no longer draw a breath. As many others have said, repetition of our mantras will most likely not be enough. Somewhere, sometime there has to be action to back up the words. Until that time, state sponsored terrorism will repeat indefinitely. It’s a cliche but it is up to us to stop it.

Mr. President, tonight you are the biggest liar in the world

Posted on Updated on

       The international terrorist’s Afghanistan ‘withdrawal’ speech started out with the big lie of this century. It proceeded to go on into the trash talk we’ve heard so many times before.

“Nearly ten years ago, America suffered the worst attack on our shores since Pearl Harbor. This mass murder was planned by Osama bin Laden and his al Qaeda network in Afghanistan, and signaled a new threat to our security – one in which the targets were no longer soldiers on a battlefield, but innocent men, women and children going about their daily lives.”

“…..we killed Osama bin Laden, the only leader that al Qaeda had ever known.” {more from the transcript

One part of the speech, although not as Obama meant it, does have true meaning when turned around and pointed at the present and past murderers in the government and banking cabal of false flags and fraudulent wars.

“The message is we don’t forget. You will be held accountable, no matter how long it takes.” 

There will be no meaningful withdrawal from Afghanistan until the CIA and the international money laundering banking system are assured that the opium production and heroin trafficking can continue unabated … or until the U.S. completely collapses.

Any troops withdrawn will most likely be re-deployed to other ‘hot spots’ as needed. The balkinization of the Middle East and north Africa is still a work in progress. The ‘Clean Break’ is not yet complete.

‘That’s A Murderer In The White House!’

Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind; War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today.
— J. F. Kennedy

The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.
— Black Elk

To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put our familys in order; to put our familys in order, we must cultivate our personal lives; and to cultivate our personal lives, we must first set our hearts right.
— Confucius

Not enough people love the truth. Not enough people seek after the truth, want to know what is true, what is real, and desire this knowledge deeply, even if the truth is painful. When many more people love the truth enough to seek it, to learn it, to accept its reality no matter how painful it is initially, our problems will resolve themselves. To love the truth is to love. To seek the truth is to love. To love is to lend our hands to God and to deny them to evil. It is all very, very simple. Love the truth, look for it everywhere, and all will be well, eventually. Honor your own dignity enough to refuse to be lied to.

Austerity for Arms

Posted on Updated on

‘Can’t pay! Won’t pay!’

War criminal Dwight Eisenhower once in a moment of clarity or maybe it was in a moment of guilty delusion said every gun that is made is a theft from those who hunger.” If he were alive today, we might just respond with “you ain’t seen nothing yet.”

A new report puts the Greece crisis in perspective. It all makes a lot of sense now that we know Greece is the 4th biggest arms importer in the world and that it was all bought on corrupt credit.

It turns out that throughout this crisis of Greek public debt, and under the direction of the same international potentates who are imposing cuts in spending on welfare, pensions, health care, the public sector and all of the other usual targets, the country’s ‘socialist’ government has continued to spend vast sums on armaments.

The fact that the principal suppliers of these arms are two of ‘austerity’s’ biggest proponents, the USA and Germany, should not surprise us. We have moved beyond a situation in which lying by leaders is not so much accepted as expected, into one in which reality plays no role whatsoever in their discourse.

Greece may, in the estimation of politicians and the mass media, be a badly-governed, corrupt kleptocracy populated by robber barons and a lazy, feckless class of reluctant workers, but it is at least armed to the teeth. The immediate cause of Greece’s financial crisis was a doubling, from 2005 to 2008, of the value of loans from western banks to the country’s government. By the end of that period, these loans amounted to $160 billion. {more}

Depending on who hands out the statistics, Greece may actually only be 5th  or so in the world’s arms market buying spree but there is no doubt who is the number 1 supplier. It’s just about the only thing we export but another fact is that we are also number 1 in using up the armaments we make and we borrow the money to deliver them to their target or give them away to Israel and to buy more. Bankers and war go hand in hand. Always have, always will. Their middle men, corporations and politicians, are lackeys in the game. The poor and working class are the pawns and are expected to pay the price.

Mark this on your calender. September in London brings the largest arms show in the world and it’s only a couple of days after the 10th anniversary of 9/11. War mongers can celebrate their favorite day of death and then party down with all of their friends and customers, making deals and planning more destruction.

It’s not all for killing folks in other lands either. Security of the homeland is a big focus this year. Gotta keep the slaves in line in case they jump on that ‘Can’t pay! Won’t pay!’ bandwagon.

And don’t you just love the DSEi’s headline theme …..

Infinite Opportunities. One world-leading event.

This is not OK …..

A Forensic Pathologist: From JFK to Caylee

Posted on Updated on

The Cayce Anthony trial.

Yes, it’s a modern day version of a circus. The OJ trial of the 21st century. Millions follow it and media whores such as Nancy Grace exploit it.

It’s a diversion from all number of other crimes happening right under our noses.

My wife served on a murder trial jury one time so it’s an interest to her and gets tube time and internet live feeds here at the house.  I haven’t been following the trial that much until today when the defense called up high profile big money forensic pathologist Dr. Werner Spitz, an Israeli Henry Kissinger lookalike and similar in speech to that war criminal.

Spitz has quite a history.

He has served on committees investigating the deaths of President John F. Kennedy, Jr., Martin Luther King, Jr., and Mary Jo Kopechne, who drowned after the car driven by Senator Edward Kennedy plunged off the Chappaquiddick Bridge. He has also served as an expert witness in numerous high-profile cases including the California Night Stalker, the Preppy Murder Trial in New York, and the wrongful death suit against O.J. Simpson.  

He was also involved in the Jon Benet Ramsey case and as a witness in the Phil Spector murder trial where he allegedly ‘flipped out’ when asked how much money he was being paid by Spector.

Spitz was adamant on the stand today that the original Caylee autopsy was ‘shoddy’ in not examining the inside of the skull. The second autopsy he performed did so.

To me his statements today were not exactly in line with what he said as an appointee by Nelson Rockefeller to the Warren Commission.

Spitz: “I do not believe that an examination of the President’s brain would contribute significantly to a clarification of the circumstances [of the murder];” and, “Microscopic examination of skin slides from the bullet wounds would not, in my opinion, have added pertinent data.

Werner Spitz, MD, devoted considerable attention to explaining why Connally’s dramatic reaction to the first shot, though occurring later in the Zapruder film than JFK’s, posed no obstacle to the Single Bullet Theory.

The HSCA endorsed Rockefeller consultant Werner Spitz’s finding that the wound in JFK’s back was lower than its purported exit in the anterior neck. This presented a problem — how could a bullet fired from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository travel upward through Kennedy’s neck? The theorized solution to this “upward bullet” problem was that Kennedy was leaning forward when struck, as the HSCA diagrams above illustrate (see HSCA vol. 7, p. 100).
The cropped portion of Zapruder film frame 228 reproduced below, however, shows that Kennedy was upright immediately after being struck. Neither the Zapruder film nor still images of JFK in Dealey Plaza disclose him leaning forward at any moment in the relevant time period.  {more}   {also more on this}
It’s obvious to me that Spitz was paid to help cover up the JFK assassination and despite his experience and expertise in forensics, it’s apparent he loves the limelight and the money of his ‘have autopsy will travel” show. I have no comment on Cayce Anthony’s guilt or innocence but regarding Spitz my opinion is that he is a criminal that aided in hiding the truth of the murder of JFK. The repercussions of this cover up continue to this very day and will for long into the future, well past after the memory of little Caylee has vanished.


Only in America …  

Some Big Questions

Posted on Updated on

Good title.

Nice symbolism.

Why would USA Today be so kind to give this upcoming comic a favorable review?

Why did it take so long for some in Congress to stand up to an administration for violating the constitutional mandate that it must be the one to declare war?  Libya is bad enough but what about Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Yemen? An army of Obama administration lawyers make lame excuses as to why the Libyan scam is not a war because American involvement fell short of full-blown hostilities.  Perhaps we should just ask a child whose home and family has been full-blown to bits what is a war? A low ball figure of $9.5 million per day in Libya doesn’t constitute a war? Just what is the dollar figure for saying, yes this is war? Not to mention the human cost.

The CIA has officially announced that Ayman al-Zawahr is their new man to head Al Qaeda.  The asset Anwar al-Awlaki didn’t make the cut but is waiting in the wings for when he’s needed to fill the top spot. How long are we going to keep talking about this fake terrorist group? Probably as long as the American people will fall for it.

Destroying mosques and homes  and wells so that Israeli ‘settlers‘ can steal some more land in the occupied territories doesn’t raise an eyebrow in the lame stream media. Not that very many in the US even care. The Weiner resignation and  the trial of white girl Casey Anthony are so much more important.

A bonanza for a few means something altogether different for most of the rest.

Not everyone thinks the “winners” in the alternative news media are all they are cracked up to be. I’ll drink to that.

Michelle Obama goes to Beverly Hills to insist that Hollywood do more for the war efforts. What’s next, Sasha and Malia encouraging kindergartners to pledge allegiance to the bomb?

Are we heading to our own nuclear disaster? Just how many wake up calls do we need?   Can you see the forest through the trees yet? 

We have a long history of treason by the American bankers {original here}. It’s still going on but no one seems to be getting arrested for it. Big money trumps the law almost every time.
 

So much for a few big questions. Without big answers that carry weight, we are just spinning around and getting dizzy. But getting dizzy may be the prelude to clarity. It’s what we hope for.

Calling all angels
We’re trying
We’re hoping
We’re loving
We’re hurting
We’re crying
We’re calling
‘Cause we’re not sure
How this goes
