FAA Loses Track of 119,000 Planes, Possible Pretext To Terror Attack

This is very suspicious. The government is clearly trying to establish a way that terrorists could possibly attack our country. The public outcry against the TSA is so great that the only way they will be able to continue their molesting ways is if there is some sort of terror attack that unifies Americans into accepting tyranny.

The Federal Aviation Administration is missing key information on who owns one-third of the 357,000 private and commercial aircraft in the U.S. — a gap the agency fears could be exploited by terrorists and drug traffickers.

The Face Of Courage

Just minutes after finishing yesterday’s newsletter I opened up a link sent to me by a friend in England. Open it only when and if you are ready to read one of the most disgusting stories you will ever read. It’s about a young girl named Hollie with Down syndrome who was sexually abused by 22 named individuals, including her father, who first raped her at the age of six, then her brother, followed by her systematic and continuous ordeals at the hands of a pedophile rape gang, which included a member of the judiciary, a senior police officer, her own head teacher, her caregiver and other professionals. It’s also about the police as well as the Lord Advocate of Scotland, Elish Angiolini, who is head of the entire legal criminal system in Scotland.

A Government by The Fascists for The Fascists

S. Paul Forrest
Activist Post

A fascist state exists where a nation begins to allow the control of its government by corporatism, single party political interests, and law enforcement that reaches beyond the normal necessity of such. There are many other defining characteristics of a fascist condition, but in the United States of America these basic ingredients have come to define a developing system that is leading the American people into a cage of control . . .

Perpetual war, no jobs and no justice equals no confidence

Perpetual war, no jobs and no justice equals no confidence
By Larry Pinkney
Dec 8, 2010
Moreover, no one should be surprised that the corporate political parties and their accomplices in the corporate-stream media are now about the business of dismantling and destroying Social Security, while Wall Street blood-suckers and the vultures of the insurance industry make a financial killing -- quite literally -- against everyday people. Meanwhile, the White House, the Congress, and the courts make an utter mockery of democracy, justice, and human rights in this nation and abroad....We must make a choice, while we still can, for ourselves and the rest of humanity. And yes, we must organize for real and complete systemic change, while there is yet time.

Google Map Foreclosure Tricks

Google Maps Foreclosure Listings

1. Punch in any US address into Google Maps.

2. Your options are Earth, Satellite, Map, Traffic and . . . More. (Select “More”)

3. The drop down menu gives you a check box option for “Real Estate.”

4. The left column will give you several options (You may have to select “Show Options”)

5. Check the box marked “Foreclosure.”

I wanted to demonstrate the full extent of Foreclosures in the US, so after setting GMaps on foreclosure listings, I slowly zoomed out of the map. Voila! Most foreclosures that are for sale in the USA are now showing on your screen.

But the maps do reveal an entire nation littered with foreclosure sales. It is an ugly and graphic depiction of how much inventory is out there, and why housing is still many years away from being healthy.

Top Military Brass Working With BP to Promote Gulf Seafood

Navy Secretary Ray Mabus is pushing all members of America's armed service to buy and eat as much seafood as possible.

This is as sinister as it gets! BP has destroyed the gulf and is now working with the U.S. military to get it in the homes of American troops (already poisoned by continued exposure to depleted uranium) throughout the country! Multiple scientists have declared gulf seafood toxic and for good reason. Over 2 million gallons of toxic dispersant has been sprayed in and around the gulf. The facts are so heavily documented that there is no logical way that any literate human being not pushing an agenda could believe otherwise.

To top it off, Ewell Smith, executive director of the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board, is pushing for this toxic cocktail to be served in in school lunch programs nationwide!

“He expressed what we wanted to hear; he is in favor of the federal government buying seafood from the Gulf,” said Smith, who said he would like to see Gulf seafood as the choice throughout the public domain, “whether it’s the military or prison systems or school systems.”

The US House of Representatives has approved a bill that boosts the country’s defense budget nearly $160 billion for 2011

The figure reflects a $31 billion hike in the country's military budget for the 2010 fiscal year, which is reportedly $128 billion. Now the official cost for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for almost the past decade has surpassed $1.1 trillion.

The bill needs to be passed by the Senate and then signed by US President Barack Obama to take effect, the Associated Press reported on Wednesday.

S 510 Food Safety bill is still alive and may unleash a new army of FDA agents

(NaturalNews) The U.S. government wants to know where your greenhouse is. Under Senate Bill 510 -- which is now back in the hands of the U.S. Senate after the House hid an amendment in an appropriations bill and passed it last night -- American food producers would be required to register their facilities with the U.S. government. The feds, it seems, want a database of food growers so they know who to target for surprise inspections (show me your papers!).

"The registration shall contain an assurance that the Secretary will be permitted to inspect such facility at the times and in the manner permitted by this Act."

What this language shows is that the point of registration is so that government agents can conduct surprise inspections of food facilities. At least 4,000 new FDA agents will need to be hired if this bill becomes law, greatly expanding the FDA's agent presence in much the same way the TSA expanded over the last few years.

So essentially what we have here is a food tyranny bill that would hand a group of un-elected bureaucrats who answer to no one the power to control virtually the entire U.S. food supply.

Betrayed again: S.510 fake food safety loaded into government funding resolution

Marti Oakley, Contributing Writer
Activist Post

We knew something else was afoot. The vote on S.510 too easy and too pat.

The bill, which was sent to the House desk prior to the vote in the Senate, contained section 107, the re-insertion of taxation in the fake food safety bill by the Senate.

The House waited til after the vote, then announced this staged faux paux and declared that the bill was “blue-slipped” due to violations of Constitutional provisions stating that all taxes must originate in the House.

Does anyone out there really believe for one minute this was a mistake on the part of Harry Reid?

Remember $4 gasoline? Oil speculators are back

Kevin G. Hall
McClatchy Newspapers

WASHINGTON — Despite weak demand in the U.S. and Europe, oil prices climbed this week to near $90 a barrel and gasoline prices have passed $3 a gallon on the West Coast and parts of the Northeast.

Why? If demand is down and supplies are plentiful — and they are — why would prices be going up?

Because Wall Street speculators are driving up oil and gasoline prices again — just in time to dampen holiday cheer . . .

According to the report, the rate of miscarriage among pregnant women during the 2009 H1N1 / swine flu pandemic soared by over 700 percent compared to previous years, pointing directly to the vaccine as the culprit — but the CDC denies the truth and continues to insist nobody has been harmed.

These documents, which are said to have originated mainly from the Israeli embassies in Tel Aviv and Beirut, where removed and possibly destroyed by Assange, who is the only person who knows the password that can open these documents, the sources added.”

Oil speculation might be one aspect that is causing oil prices to climb, but there are other factors to consider as well. Refinery slow down, very harsh winter season, and dollar devaluation by the Federal Reserve Bank, would be prime causes of gasoline price increases. - kdtroxel

Israel draws international rebuke over refusal to freeze settlement construction

The EU, UN and Arab League criticize Israel on its failure to renew freeze on West Bank settlement construction, which expired in late September, leading to the halt of direct Israel-PA peace talks.

The European Union, the United Nations and the Arab League have rebuked Israel after its refusal to halt settlement construction forced Washington to drop efforts to relaunch Mideast peace talks.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday stuck to his position that he won't negotiate without a freeze of Jewish settlement building in the West Bank and East Jerusalem - lands captured by Israel in the Six Day War in 1967 and sought by the Palestinians for their state. He spoke after meeting in Cairo with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and intelligence chief Omar Suleiman.

America Alone

Nation-building missions and armed democracy-promotion ventures are not essential to America’s security. We do not need, and should not want, any more Iraqs or Afghanistans. More than 5,000 dead Americans and nearly $2 trillion down the drain ought to deter Washington from pursuing similar schemes in the future.

It was bad enough during the Cold War when the United States appointed itself global policeman, but in recent years our nation has become the world’s armed social worker. U.S. leaders will find that to be an increasingly lonely role. Even America’s professed allies no longer have the military capabilities or the desire to join us as junior partners. Instead of berating them for a lack of loyalty, we ought to emulate their wisdom and restraint.

The Obama Administration has quietly granted even more waivers to one provision of the new federal health reform law, doubling the number in just the last three weeks to a new total of 222.

One of the more recognizable business names included on the newly-expanded list of waivers issued by the feds is that of Waffle House, which received a waiver on November 23 for health coverage that covers 3,947 enrollees.

Another familiar name was that of Universal Orlando, which runs a variety of very popular resorts in the Orlando, Florida area. Universal was given a waiver for plans that cover 668 workers.

These waivers deal with limited health benefit plans, sometimes referred to as “mini-med” policies, which companies as large as McDonald’s use for some its employees.

Haiti cholera: UN peacekeepers to blame, report says

Epidemiologist Renaud Piarroux conducted research in Haiti on behalf of the French and Haitian governments.

The cholera epidemic has killed 2120 people, and nearly 100,000 cases have been treated, according to the Haitian government.

The report by Mr Piarroux found that the source of the outbreak was a Nepalese peacekeeping base, whose toilets contaminated the Artibonite river, according to a copy seen by the Associated Press news agency.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if this epidemic was "allowed" to happen to silence the Haitian people, who were beginning to speak out about the lack of promised aid and infrastructure.

There are a number of countries (the US included) which find it in their best interests to keep Haitians perpetually disenfranchised and appallingly poor.

Amid Censorship Efforts, US Announces Plans to Host World Press Freedom Day

Faced with growing efforts to censor the release of embarrassing information by WikiLeaks and armed with at best a tenuous grasp of the concept of irony, US State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley today announced that the federal government has won the right to host “World Press Freedom Day” in May of 2011, and that the event will be held in Washington DC.

In his official statement Crowley said the move would prove the US commitment to “expand press freedom and the free flow of information in this digital age,” but comes at a time when the State Department is not only championing the attempt to silence the release of classified cables showing a variety of crimes by officials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One does not know whether to laugh or cry at this one, considering all the lies this government has gone to great lengths to continue to propagate, and in the process, attempting to muzzle the whistle-blowers committed to telling the truth.

What Assange has going is, fundamentally, a high-end extortion racket targeted against governments. He will make statements about information which is about to be leaked....then, he sits on the info, giving various countries the time to buy his silence, as has apparently happened with Israel.

Notice that in none of the cables which were leaked was anything stated which did not support the Israeli position on Iran.
