As with anything from the FBI, the photos, some of which may be staged, and the video, which was unlisted and couldn’t be accessed without the link, may not be an entirely honest account of that day but still worth examining.
In the video, I didn’t see anything of the reported downed light poles that even this questionable site questioned. Maybe I missed it? The light poles always seemed to be a poor add-on for the official story and maybe injected for the distraction value. Also the video doesn’t show many lawn marks or much of a debris field in front of the Pentagon. ???
Willyloman put together this graphic showing what appears to be poles on the Pentagon lawn and another screenshot from the video that looks to confirm what he is saying. (see comments below)
Just when you think you’ve heard it all, it gets worse.
I turned on the radio late last night to hear a little soothing music but … oops wrong station.
This creepy little non-human by the name of Bill Cunningham was taking hate speech to a whole new level. He almost makes Savage and Limbaugh look like choirboys. In a quick summary here’s what he was saying:
Dresden was good. Hiroshima was double good. If you’re going to fight a war, kill the civilians, burn ’em, they deserve it.
Expanding to Iran he says:
I’d warn the Iranians a few days in advance to get the heck out of Dodge. I would obliterate (a favorite word used at least a dozen times) the 20 largest cities. Women, children, they all need to die. 20 million killed would be a good start. Then we would go in and take all of their resources and bring them back to the US.
Billy boy must have thought we didn’t hear him the first time so he repeats the same thing over and over, all the while on the phone line is some racist self described jew cheering him on and breaking in twice to declare Billy’s sick words as “the greatest rant in the whole history of the world.” Seriously. You just can’t make this sort of thing up.
Billy is brain damaged and senile but I do think I heard him drooling and counting his money in the background. Being bought off is a good gig for the mentally and morally challenged.
In Pax Judaica, formerly the USA, this is what passes for free speech. Broadcasting on over 300 stations and advocating mass murder in a foreign land is AOK. Just don’t talk about overthrowing our criminal syndicate federal government and their media whores. That will get you thrown into a new American gulag.
Calling out the MSM warmongers is not enough. There are those in the alternative media that deserve a second look. Via xymphora we find Maidhc Ó Cathail taking on the change of tone at Antiwar.com and there’s a comment mention of the same thing at Global Research. Re-directing attention from Israel? As the old Lenin saying goes … “The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.”
Over at Twelfth Bough there is described a development in Chinese and Israeli relations that hints at World Judaica.
“Only recently a large team of Chinese state television employees visited Israel for a period of three weeks, to research the ‘Israeli miracle.’ Now they are visiting several places in the world that used to have large Jewish communities, in order to examine the Jewish community’s influence on its surroundings. Their idea is to try to decipher the secret of the Jews’ success.”
The Chinese are so adept at copying, stealing and re-engineering that this hook up with the Israelis should be a breeze but of course it would be the jews who expect to profit the most from this ‘learning’ experience.
On Martin Luther King day it’s worth a reminder that he was not killed because of his civil rights endeavors. That was acceptable to the powers that be. The opportunity to divide a population to gain more control is always acceptable to the ruling psychopaths. No, it was when he started speaking out against the war that the decision was made to eliminate that kind of talk. War is a profit center and advocating doing away with the cash cow was not to be tolerated.
From his speech Beyond Vietnam — A Time to Break Silence
Over the past two years, as I have moved to break the betrayal of my own silences and to speak from the burnings of my own heart, as I have called for radical departures from the destruction of Vietnam, many persons have questioned me about the wisdom of my path. At the heart of their concerns this query has often loomed large and loud: “Why are you speaking about the war, Dr. King?” “Why are you joining the voices of dissent?” “Peace and civil rights don’t mix,” they say. “Aren’t you hurting the cause of your people,” they ask? And when I hear them, though I often understand the source of their concern, I am nevertheless greatly saddened, for such questions mean that the inquirers have not really known me, my commitment or my calling. Indeed, their questions suggest that they do not know the world in which they live.
As I have walked among the desperate, rejected, and angry young men, I have told them that Molotov cocktails and rifles would not solve their problems. I have tried to offer them my deepest compassion while maintaining my conviction that social change comes most meaningfully through nonviolent action. But they ask — and rightly so — what about Vietnam? They ask if our own nation wasn’t using massive doses of violence to solve its problems, to bring about the changes it wanted. Their questions hit home, and I knew that I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today — my own government.
Vet’s vent over the ‘event’ of urinating on the dead.
The “irony” is that is is fine for the U.S. to kill civilians, have all kinds of “collateral damage,” and friendly fire events. It is OK to drop “daisy cutter” bombs and kill with unmanned drones. It is OK to hold people for years in close confinement and without charge or trial; engage in “rendition,” or even torture prisoners ourselves. But somehow, urinating on the dead is just a step too far.
Until we address the reality of what we are creating we will continue to allow it to be created. Generation after generation of troops will have to keep the stuff of nightmares bottled up inside, or it will come out in another attack and another prison sentence.
Will soldiers be sufficiently indoctrinated to internalize the children and women of Iran as the ‘enemy?’ I challenge all drone jockeys, bomber pilots and trigger pullers to ask themselves “Is this who I want to kill?”
Heartfelt sympathies to all the victims of the luxury Costa Cruises ship that ran aground and tilted over with 4,200 aboard.
Tragic yes. It could also be seen as symbolic.
Of what I’m not sure. Maybe you have some sort of idea.
Cruises are the corporate new age vacations. You don’t have to be rich to take one, although it helps. Fresh sea air, luxury accoutrements, all you can eat and the feeling of being rich for a little while. Could you ask for more? The chance of dying on a cruise is probably less than that of getting into a car. Food poisoning is sometimes a problem but you’ll most likely survive. Just always remember not to buy dope from the kids running up to you with their wares when you get off the boat at those exotic locations. It may be a set-up/shake down for the local cops to make a buck. Stuff happens.
My nephew just got married and his wife’s grandmother gave them a week long cruise. They loved it except for one thing … the on-board six dollar beers. Make sure you budget for that well in advance. Luxury with a buzz is not cheap.
Cruises are big business. The economy will decide how many of the companies survive. Although they are still riding the waves high, what would become of a bankrupt cruise ship? Oh yeah, they make good troop carriers. My father returned from Europe after WWII on the cruise ship Queen Elizabeth. Luxury it wasn’t.
Interesting facts from the cruise industry:
The industry forecasted 16 million passengers in 2011, a 6.6% increase over 2010.
In 2010 a record of 15 million passengers are forecasted to have cruised, with 11.1 million originating in North America.
Of the total US population that is 25 years or older, with household earnings of $40,000+, 44.6% indicates that they have taken a cruise, with 22.7% having cruised in the past three years.
It is estimated that only 19.9% of the total US population has cruised ever and 9.9% have done so within the last three years.
Cruisers average age is 50 years of age with a household income of $109,000.
Impressive numbers if true. For how long they will hold up is anyone’s guess. In a world of ever increasing disparity I won’t bet on them for the long run. But what do I know?
Cruises seem to be a reflection of our materialistic society and could be looked at as an example of modern groupthink. Lemmings do like luxury.
