Please note that in the article that follows, I am not claiming that the U.S. Government knew Mutallab had a bomb or intended to hurt anyone on Flight 253 when the U.S. Government let him board.
Since our flight landed on Christmas Day, Lori and I have been doing everything in our power to uncover the truth about why we were almost blown up in the air over Detroit. The truth is now finally out after the publication of the following Detroit News article:
Let me quote from the article:
“Patrick F. Kennedy, an undersecretary for management at the State Department, said Abdulmutallab’s visa wasn’t taken away because intelligence officials asked his agency not to deny a visa to the suspected terrorist over concerns that a denial would’ve foiled a larger investigation into al-Qaida threats against the United States.
“Revocation action would’ve disclosed what they were doing,” Kennedy said in testimony before the House Committee on Homeland Security. Allowing Adbulmutallab to keep the visa increased chances federal investigators would be able to get closer to apprehending the terror network he is accused of working with, “rather than simply knocking out one solider in that effort.”‘
Now it all becomes apparent. Let me detail everything we know about the “Sharp Dressed Man” (SDM).
1. While being held in Customs on Christmas Day, I first told the story of the SDM.
2. My story has never changed.
3. The FBI visited my office on December 29, 2009, and showed me a series of approximately 10 photographs. None were of the SDM. I asked the FBI if they brought the Amsterdam security video to help me identify the SDM, but they acted as though my request was ridiculous. The FBI asked me what accent the SDM spoke in and I indicated that he had an American accent similar to my own. I further indicated that he wore a tan suit without a tie, was Indian looking, around age 50, 6′0″ tall and 250-260 lbs. I further indicated that I did not believe that he was an airline employee and that he was not on our flight.4. During the first week of January, 2010, Dutch Military Police and the FBI indicated that over “200 Hours” of Amsterdam airport security video had been reviewed and it “Shows Nothing”.
5. The mainstream media picked up the “Shows nothing” story, which slanders my story. After visiting my office twice for a flight 253 special, Dateline NBC and Chris Hanson indicated that my story was “Unsubstantiated rumor dispelled as myth” and our story did not air during the tv special.
6. On January 2, 2010, I receive a call from a flight 253 passenger who indicated to me that it may be in my best interest to stop talking publicly about the SDM because he believes I am “wrong” in what I saw. He did not make any claim that he saw the SDM boarding gate incident at all. This call was made out of the blue after he made a “revelation” of this event on January 1, 2010. I later discover that this caller has ties to the U.S. Government.
7. On January 20, 2009, current Director of the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), Michael E. Leiter, made a startling admission. Leiter indicated that: “I will tell you, that when people come to the country and they are on the watch list, it is because we have generally made the choice that we want them here in the country for some reason or another.”
8. On January 22, 2010, CongressDaily reported that intelligence officials “have acknowledged the government knowingly allows foreigners whose names are on terrorist watch lists to enter the country in order to track their movement and activities.”
CongressDaily also reported, citing an unnamed “intelligence official” that Michael E. Leiter’s statement on January 20, 2010, reflected government policy and told the publication, “in certain situations it’s to our advantage to be able to track individuals who might be on a terrorist watch list because you can learn something from their activities and their contacts.”
9. On Janury 22, 2009, ABC News published an article that shoed a change of position in the government’s official story. Please see the following blog post for more information:
The U.S. government provided no explanation for the reason my story was initially discounted.
10. The SDM could not be from Al Qaeda. When speaking at the counter in Amsterdam, the SDM said the following “He is from Sudan, we do this all the time”. Who is “we”? If it is Al Qaeda, you surely don’t make such a statement to an airposrt security official.
11. The SDM could not be from airport security. The SDM did not dress in any secuirty uniform and did not appear to have any security badge. The SDM did not speak with a Dutch accent. The SDM dressed in a suit coat and pants. If the SDM was a higher up security official, he would not have to convince the ticket agent to let Mutallab on the plane without a valid passport. Instead, he would just order her to do it.
12. Could the SDM have been a U.S. Government official? He dressed in a suit and not a security uniform. Check. He indicated we do this all the time. Could “we” be the U.S. Government? Check. He spoke Enlish with an American accent. Check. Would he need to convice the ticket agent that this was a normal procedure to allow boarding without a passport? Check. Would he have the ability to obtain such clearance? Check. Could he enter this security area even though he wasn’t a passenger? Check. Would the ticket agent likely refer this request to a manager? Check. Would the U.S. Government not want this information public and try to hide it? Check.
13. The Amsterdam security video has not been released. A much more minor airport security violation occurred at the Newark New Jersay airport several days after the flight 253 incident. That video was released shortly thereafter.
14. Senators Levin and Stabenow, as well as Congressman Dingle, all refuse to discuss the matter with me.
With the information we already knew and the admission from the above referenced Detroit News article, we have evidence and claims made by government officials that the U.S. Government wanted Mutallab to proceed into the U.S. in order to obtain information on other terrorists involved with him. Once we take this statement and add it to my eyewitness account of a “Sharp Dressed Man” escorting Mutallab through the boarding process and allowing him to baord without a valid passport we can make the connection that the “Sharp Dressed Man” was a U.S. Government offical/agent.
The reasoning behind the following events now becomes very clear:
1. The reason Mutallab got through security despite the numerous warnings for months before our flight.
2. The reason why there have been so many lies from the U.S. Governemnt attempting to discredit my eyewitness account.
3. The reason why the Amsterdam airport security video is being hidden from the public.
4. The reason why the government is proposing a “Failed to Connect the Dots” account of the failure. The truth is too damning.
5. The reason why Mr. Wolf of the Obama administration indicated on the Keith Olberman Show that the White House was investigating a possible “intentional act” from within the U.S. Government as the reason for the Christmas Day attack.
6. The explanation for the cameraman and why he hasn’t been identified (Obviously, he was another U.S. Government agent) whose job was to film Mutallab for some governmental purpose.
7. The reason for the lax security after landing, which can be attributed to foreknowledge of the possible suspects involved.
8. The reason for the failure to search or secure the plane and passengers after landing, which can also be attributed to foreknowledge of the possible suspects involved.
9. The corporate media’s attempt to bury my eyewitness account.
10. Carl Levin’s, Debbie Stabenow’s and John Dingle’s intentional avoidance of my story and failure to return my calls/emails.11. Janet Naploitano’s statement that “The System Worked”. From her point of view it probably did as this WAS PART OF THE SYSTEM!

The War of the Empire has many faces
The ‘war on terror’ has become nameless since our administration changed. But it is the same war, it has the same goals and it is as unwinnable as it always was. But certainly there are other ways of conquering the planet, says Washington. And so they impose the huge industries with their humungous profits on the entire world, corporations like Monsanto, Cargill, Dow, Bunge and others, giants that impose their own laws on world-wide agriculture and their goal is to make us eat only what they profit from.
Through lies and total lack of concern for the final outcome, they insert their hired crooks, their representatives, in top positions everywhere, make deals with corrupt governments all over the world, deals that make farmers the innocent victims of a world-wide scam. The result is disaster for the farmers and the poor people all over the world and enormous power for the Biotech Companies that suck the blood out of the earth and out of the people who used to cultivate it with their own millennia-old and environmentally safe methods.
Monsanto is just about the most callous, the most harmful, the most insidious of the whole gang of predators who are out to get on top of the world – and who are ruining it savagely in the process. They are busy ruining the environment irredeemably and the health of the inhabitants of this threatened world. Global warming doesn’t even have to play out its role, the biotech industry will play the part of the Grim Reaper, mowing down everything that does not add to their profits, ruining people’s health, playing hell with the earth’s ecosystems and biodiversity that has served the planet for millennia in a world that was mostly safe from predators, the kind of sharks that devour their prey without any afterthoughts.
Monsanto plays the part as the leader of the gang of predators in the destruction of age-old agriculture that provided the world population with natural foods that fitted into the ecosystems of the region where they were grown. And they go about this destruction with the fierce cruelty of the shark, with NO consideration for anything except the instant and short-term profit of the predators themselves.
Below are excerpts from a couple of essays, facts that need to be brought to the attention of the people of the world.

Revolt of the Plebs

“You furnish the pictures and I’ll furnish the war”
William Randolph Hearst
There will be war…and there will be pictures.
There will be death and destruction, misery and pain.
But as the United States, Israel and Britain expand their empires, don’t expect to see footage of tanks draped in skulls rolling down urban streets as howling soldiers mow down anything that moves while gyrating to the beat of speed-metal-deathcore-rap. Don’t expect to see pictures of a weeping mother caressing the heads of her two dead sons among the rubble of her meager dwelling.
War is hell. War is ugly. But the next war-brought to you in part by the state of Israel-will be poised as nothing short of beautiful; an oh-so-holy mission from God himself. A very Judeo-Christian and patriotic endeavor to deliver the oppressed from their 3000 year old cultures. A righteous crusdae to spread democracy and all the trappings that come with it: a stripper in every lap and a “Whopper” in every mouth.
And that whole package may very well walk right into the camera frame wrapped in a pink dress and three inch stillettos heels. Who am I talking about? Why none other than the “Good Ship” Sarah Palin of course; with a bible tucked under one arm and a “special needs” child in the other, standing in front of an American flag with a radiant smile and long tan legs running all the way down from the hem of her short skirt to the floor of the stage. And if you ask her if we should send more of our children off to die in another one of Israel’s wars she will most certainly reply with her patented “You betcha!”Full article HERE
Published 29 January, 2010
The Council of Europe is set to decide whether the World Health Organization colluded with drug companies to exaggerate the threat from swine flu.
The WHO declared the disease a "pandemic", allegedly after advice from doctors with close links to pharmaceutical companies.
The Council is looking into whether the threat was blown out of proportion.
An estimated US$18 billion was spent worldwide on vaccinations and drugs to fight the flu.
An expert from the Russian Academy of Sciences says the H1N1 flu is a non-disease.
“The recent flu has been described as a made-up disease or a non-disease. In other words, the main goal of everything surrounding it is to make money. SARS, bird flu and chronic fatigue are all in that category, along with nearly 200 other illnesses. One can make up anything – a goat flu or a fish flu. And we are easily convinced about the threat of infections,” Pavel Vorobyov says. “One such example is what happened after the Chernobyl catastrophe, when people were persuaded to buy devices to measure radioactivity. So a disease doesn’t even have to be infectious for companies to make money from the panic.”

CAIRO (AP) - Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden has called in a new audiotape for the world to boycott American goods and the U.S. dollar, blaming the United States and other industrialized countries for global warming.
He says the world should "stop consuming American products" and "refrain from using the dollar," according to a transcript on Al-Jazeera's Web site.
The new message, whose authenticity could not immediately be confirmed, comes after a bin Laden tape released last week in which he endorsed a failed attempt to blow up an American airliner on Christmas Day.

Remember my repeated warnings about consulting with both a lawyer and CPA before defaulting on your debts - including mortgages - on purpose?
King is among a rising number of borrowers who are learning that they can be on the hook for years after losing their homes. Amid a crisis that stripped $6.4 trillion, or 28 percent, from the value of U.S. residential real estate since the 2006 peak, lenders are exercising their rights to pursue unpaid mortgage balances. To get their money, they can seize wages, tap bank accounts and put liens on other assets held by debtors.
In some cases they can seize wages, tap bank account and lay liens.
This is very situational and state-specific.
Oh, and don't think that a short sale protects you from this. It doesn't necessarily, and some banks are slithering snakes in their short sale agreements...
“Banks are being very careful to preserve their rights, either outright in the short sale agreement or by using vague language that leaves that door open,” Hillard said. About 90 percent of people who do a short sale think they are “off the hook.”
Again, let me reiterate:
GET COMPETENT LEGAL AND TAX ADVICE THAT YOU PAY FOR SEPARATELY FROM PEOPLE YOU INDEPENDENTLY SELECT BEFORE YOU CONSIDER ANY SORT OF CHANGE THAT ALLEGEDLY WILL "FREE" YOU FROM DEBT, IRRESPECTIVE OF HOW.
THE FINANCIAL INDUSTRY DOES NOT PLAY "FAIR." THEY HAVE ROBBED THE PEOPLE ON THE WAY UP AND IF THEY CAN GET THEIR CLAWS INTO YOU THEY WILL ROB YOU AGAIN ON THE WAY DOWN.
STATE LAW MAY OR MAY NOT PROTECT YOU AND YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT THE CONSEQUENCES ARE OF ANY STEP YOU TAKE, EVEN WHAT LOOKS LIKE A "CLEAN" WAY OUT SUCH A SHORT SALE AGREEMENT!
PAY A COMPETENT LAWYER AND CPA!
The Corbett Report
Lamenting the likely outcome of recent revelations that the WHO knowingly and unnecessarily hyped the recent H1N1 influenza panic, WHO Director-General Margaret Chan admitted: "The days when health officials could issue advice, based on the very best medical and scientific data, and expect populations to comply, may be fading."
The remarks came in Chan's report to the WHO Executive Board at the biannual meeting of the board in Geneva last week. They come at the end of a decidedly upbeat report on the WHO's recent successes that avoids talking about recent allegations that the WHO's own officials and advisors knowingly and unnecessarily hyped the recent swine flu panic to benefit their big pharma patrons. In the report, Chan does not mention the recent Dutch parliament investigation into Dr. Albert Osterhaus or the ongoing investigation by the Council of Europe, choosing instead to allude to these ongoing investigations elliptically: "It is natural that every decision or action that shaped the response [to the H1N1 outbreak] will likewise be closely and carefully scrutinized." She adds somewhat hopefully that "WHO can withstand this scrutiny."

I had previously reported that US citizens are being tortured by our own government when the executive branch says the magic word: "terrorist." Under the 2006 Military Commissions Act (MCA), such Americans can be detained forever without legal right of habeas corpus. If those Americans are brought to trial rather than detained and tortured at the whim of the tyrants, the US government has created an unconstitutional system of judgment and execution: the President/dictator slurring the American as “terrorist” also says who the judges are to determine guilt with available penalty of execution. These three military tribunal judges are allowed to accept “secret evidence” from the government that is unavailable for the defendant to view or challenge if two other words are said: “national security.”
We know MCA was intended for American citizens because the US government has applied it to American citizens and argued for its use rather than the US Constitution's provisions through the first two levels of federal court. The current legal standing through federal court decision is that MCA is applicable to US citizens upon the dictate of the executive branch.

Roseville, Calif., shopping mall
Arguments have moved to the appellate court level in a California case in which a man talking to two willing strangers in a shopping mall was arrested because the subject of the conversation was God.
Matthew Snatchko, who works with youth at his church, was interrupted in the middle of a conversation by a security guard. A second guard joined the confrontation and told Snatchko he was being placed under citizen's arrest for "trespassing."
The pastor said he agreed to leave but instead, the guards grabbed him, roughly shoved him against a storefront window and handcuffed him tightly enough to draw blood. Snatchko later was taken to the police station where he was booked on charges of battery and trespassing.
A short time later the charges were dropped, but officials with the Pacific Justice Institute decided to pursue a case against the mall over the impact of the policy on free speech.

I’m fed up…absolutely appalled and disheartened as to what is going on in our country—a country that once stood for freedom of speech, freedom of religion, pursuit of happiness, liberty, fairness, human rights, and the American dream.
What I am seeing is a steady but aggressive move to Socialism, not only by the rulers in our nation but also by the Power Elite (the Illuminati, central bankers, wealthy head honchos worldwide in the background calling the shots). Years from now, we’ll be telling our children and grandchildren about the good ol’ days in America, when she was once the most powerful and wealthiest nation on the globe, where people could achieve the American dream, where compassion and humanity ruled, where art and culture were honored, where jobs were abundant in industry and business, where food was plentiful, and where her military prowess was unparalleled. To our children and grandchildren, ol’ America will be a new concept, as the America they will come to know will be a mere shell of herself, an infrastructure of Democratic Socialism or Fascism, if not outright Communism.
And if you don’t believe we are now a blooming socialist/fascist/communist nation, consider the layers of bureaucracy and insulation (and cost to taxpayers)—from czars, to the Cabinet, to (now) White House governors-- Mr. Obama has placed between the government and the people. Look at this breaking news:
It looks as though President Obama today has taken his first step towards martial law in America. I just pulled this piece off the wires, which indicates the issuance of his new executive order. This order sets up the framework for the use of federal troops and the combination of state and federal agencies under the Defence Department. This is startling news for many reasons. Why now? Why now?
- President Obama Signs Executive Order Establishing Council of Governors; Monday, 11 January 2010 19:07 Press Release Latest National News; 12766- Washington, D.C.--(ENEWSPF)--January 11, 2010. The President today signed an Executive Order establishing a Council of Governors to strengthen further the partnership between the Federal Government and State Governments to protect our Nation against all types of hazards. When appointed, the Council will be reviewing such matters as involving the National Guard of the various States; homeland defence [sic]; civil support; synchronization and integration of State and Federal military activities in the United States; and other matters of mutual interest pertaining to National Guard, homeland defence [sic], and civil support activities. 
The Blind, the Deaf, the Mute
Some of you readers are not going to like what I am saying here, as you have plugs in your ears and blinders on your eyes as to what our president, his cabinet, and our congress are doing to us. You would rather come home from work, guzzle down your beer, slurp your food, and watch a mindless television show than really learn what is going on in our country, in our world. The old saying “ignorance is bliss” is certainly manifested in those of you who are so preoccupied with your own needs and welfare that you can’t get past yourself and on to the big picture of how our country is dying and how that will affect you and your family, generations later…forever. You are going to be terribly surprised when you suddenly find yourself a citizen no longer of a republic with a democracy but rather a resident slave of a Communist nation.
It breaks my heart to have to write this. What I write here is only my opinion. I would much rather be penning the praises of our country and congratulating ourselves for having seen our errant ways and fixed them, but our nation’s deaf and sightless of millions worry me; unless we’re slapped in the face with the truth, the facts, the bare bones of our insides, we won’t make the changes necessary to get America back on her feet, to get her clean and proud again, to get her strong and caring.
So if you are one of the sightless and deaf, don’t come crying to those of us who have spent years trying to warn you, who have coaxed you to read and listen to alternative media to get a fair, unbiased account of what has been going on in our country, who have urged you to take action. Perhaps you’ll find yourself in a detention camp asking, “How did this happen?”; and when they come to drag you, your family, and your fellow inmates off to behead or gas you, you’ll sob and plead, but to no avail. So wake up now! Get involved! Open your mouth; voice your protests! Do not be mute on top of being deaf and blind. Join Tea Party groups; protect your country and yourself and family, as well as your brothers and sisters around the nation. Get the facts! Stop coddling yourself and move in the right direction. Question everything our government tells you.
Discover who really is behind all the decisions that our president and congress make. Study the people running our government—Geithner, Emmanuel, Napolitano, and the rest of the greenhorn doughboys and trainee bread-girls. Ask yourself and others if you have faith in these people who are too inexperienced to run a nation, and very sly and tricky, acting against us in the backdrops, placing false info online, and, with a smile, denying it all. This is our government? How did we get to this point? Where are we going?
When government redeploys, restructures our hard-earned money (a Communist Manifesto plank; redistribution of wealth), we know Socialism is licking at our heels. Socialism is defined as a political theory advocating state ownership of industry; an economic system based on state ownership of capital [wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn]. 
When government forces everyone in the nation to accept the morals of a minority, and takes over industries, financial institutions, and corporations--know then that we are living in a Fascist country. When government owns our health care (rationing of care to seniors, free health care to illegals, abortion funding, forcing insurance companies out of business, controlling all aspects of individual health care--it’s in the Obamacare bill), we decompose from the inside out.
Our government is reducing the masses to slave labor, getting anti-American bills passed by placing them inside other thousand-plus-paged bills and getting the whole shebang enacted because no representative wants to read those grueling and arduous, convoluted reams of paper. The government places its incurred burden of expenses on us individuals—and our grandchildren as well--whether it is in a form of taxation, or by implementing a global warming (now guised as “climate change”) cap and trade, or some other false expenditure. We pay for Mr. and Mrs. Obama’s endless travels with hundreds in their entourage; we pay through extraordinary fees for everything we need to do; we pay for our congress people’s individual care packages. With salaries that are less than the cost-of-living, we will pay for a multi-billion dollar healthcare plan that most Americans don’t want (unless you’re an illegal immigrant, where you are allowed to use our services and not pay for anything; that’s a whole ’nother issue in and of its self, and one that would require a lengthy essay). The bottom line: WE pay for everything the insulated Congress, President and his Cabinet deem needing implemented! Yet those very same people have their own health insurance, their own social security system, their own incredible retirement program, and their wage-increase plan when the rest of us can’t find jobs, let alone get a raise. Why would they care about us when they live well, high, and on taxpayers’ money?
We do nothing as they hammer us with ongoing and ever-increasing costs, as they continue to ignore—even destroy—our Bill of Rights, and as they make judicial and government-controlled decisions outside the framework of our Constitution. Silencing us with threats of arrest and fines for breaking laws that should never have been ratified, building databases on us, surveilling us, implanting thoughts in us, derailing and wrecking our nation’s basic foundation of morals, passing on misinformation as truth, and collapsing our economy, are all symptomatic of an uncaring congress and a despotic president operating in a socialist nation.
Removal of God
From the beginning of history, humankind has lived by the authority of God, and this power has permeated every aspect of our lives. For many of us, the idea of heaven and hell hold sway, and so we live by a faith and moral code. Each of us should respect another’s beliefs, and whoever God is to us, he sets up for us intrinsically and externally the idea of absolutes of right and wrong. This has always been a potent, guiding force in our lives, and it worked best for most of us, for millennia. For the Power Elite, God is not an entity to tangle with, and certainly His people would not go down easily. A solution had to be found.
They know that removing God and Christianity from America is the only way they can beat us, and yet our country was presumably founded on Christianity, and certainly remains the largest sect of all religions in our nation. Yet, Christians are shamefully silent, even when they removed the Ten Commandments from the court houses, when they eliminated the Lord’s Prayer and barred any mention of the words God and Christ in public schools, when the military fired chaplains for mentioning “in Christ’s name,” when our own president rejected the annual National Day of Prayer: 
President Barack Obama plans to mark the day by issuing a proclamation. He will not have a ceremony at the White House, a spokesman said Tuesday. "We are disappointed in the lack of participation by the Obama administration," said Shirley Dobson, chairwoman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, who for the last eight years has attended a White House ceremony with her husband, James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family. "At this time in our country's history, we would hope our president would recognize more fully the importance of prayer."
Add to this is our president has voiced opposition to a nativity scene:
When former social secretaries gave a luncheon to welcome Ms. Rogers [Desirée Rogers… the currently embattled White House social secretary], earlier this year, one participant said, she surprised them by suggesting the Obamas were planning a “non-religious Christmas”…and that [she] replied that the Obamas did not intend to put the manger scene on display... (a White House official confirmed that there had been internal discussions about making Christmas more inclusive and whether to display the crèche)…in the end, tradition won out…. 
President Obama allowed the Muslim religion to have a National Day of Prayer which was on September 25, 2009, from 4 AM to 7 PM held on Capitol Hill, beside the White House where thousands attended. Hmmm, maybe President Obama is a Muslim and has been trying to fool us into thinking he is a Christian. The power of Christians nationwide is formidable but we aren’t using it. The Elite know that we won’t organize, and they’re doing everything they can to take that one single action away from us by forbidding Christian expression and demanding “political correctness.” In fact, the “Christian Identity” is referred to as terrorism. The Elite do not fear lawsuits or court decisions, protestations by small grassroots groups, being voted out of office, boycotts, and certainly not unorganized Christians. No, their one and only fear is Christians rising en masse against them.
So why are we so quiet?

While giving a speech designed to show America that he is not out of touch, Obama delivered a real howler of a line that ultimately caused his audience, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, and even Obama himself to laugh. It’s taken him a year to understand that what concerns Americans the most is the economy.
It remains to be seen how long it will take President Obama to realize that the manufactured evidence embraced by climate change alarmists has been crumbling for some time. The only thing overwhelming about it is the outrage one feels after learning the truth.

Conservative opponents of the Obama administration are urging supporters to resist the upcoming US census, saying it asks too many questions and reflects increasing government intrusion into private matters.
The census, held every 10 years since 1790, is becoming a focal point for the growing anti-government movement in the US.
The government will endeavour to count every person living in the US, regardless of legal, immigration or citizenship status. The count, which helps determine political representation and the distribution of hundreds of billions of dollars in government funds, is mandated by the constitution.
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, a virulently conservative, anti-Obama Republican from Minnesota, has urged supporters to give only the number of people living in their household, saying nothing more is required by the constitution.
More starvation and death guaranteed by blocking poorer countries from building coal-fired power plants
Paul Joseph Watson
Tuesday, January 26, 2010
Under the provably fraudulent and completely corrupted justification of fighting global warming, the Obama administration has ordered the World Bank to keep “developing” countries underdeveloped by blocking them from building coal-fired power plants, ensuring that poorer countries remain in poverty as a result of energy demands not being met.
Even amidst the explosive revelations of the United Nations IPCC issuing reports on the Himalayan Glaciers and the Amazon rainforest littered with incorrect data, the U.S. government has “Stepped up pressure on the World Bank not to fund coal-fired power plants in developing countries,” reports the Times of India.
The order was made by U.S. Executive Director of the World Bank Whitney Debevoise, who represents the United States in considering all loans, investments, country assistance strategies, budgets, audits and business plans of the World Bank Group entities.
By preventing poor nations from becoming self-sufficient in blocking them from producing their own energy, the Obama administration is ensuring that millions more will die from starvation and lack of access to hospitals and medical treatment.
Not only does strangling the energy supply to poorer countries prevent adequate food distribution and lead to more starvation, but hospitals and health clinics in the third world are barely even able to operate as a result of the World Bank and other global bodies ordering them to be dependent on renewable energy supplies that are totally insufficient.
A prime example appeared in the documentary The Great Global Warming Swindle, which highlighted how a Kenyan health clinic could not operate a medical refrigerator as well as the lights at the same time because the facility was restricted to just two solar panels.
“There’s somebody keen to kill the African dream. And the African dream is to develop,” said author and economist James Shikwati. “I don’t see how a solar panel is going to power a steel industry … We are being told, ‘Don’t touch your resources. Don’t touch your oil. Don’t touch your coal.’ That is suicide.”
The program labels the idea of restricting the world’s poorest people to alternative energy sources as “the most morally repugnant aspect of the global warming campaign.”

Friday, January 29, 2010
In another measure of how what the establishment labels “conspiracy theory” is quickly becoming mainstream, Bloomberg News carries a story today acknowledging that those derided as “crazy” for warning that the world is run by a secret banking cabal have largely been proven right in light of the AIG cover-up.
“The idea of secret banking cabals that control the country and global economy are a given among conspiracy theorists who stockpile ammo, bottled water and peanut butter. After this week’s congressional hearing into the bailout of American International Group Inc., you have to wonder if those folks are crazy after all,” writes Bloomberg’s David Reilly today.
“Wednesday’s hearing described a secretive group deploying billions of dollars to favored banks, operating with little oversight by the public or elected officials.”
Reilly goes on to describe how the New York Fed conducted a backdoor bailout (or in plainer terms a wholesale looting of the taxpayer) of banks like Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Merrill Lynch & Co., Societe Generale and Deutsche Bank AG, and then sought to keep it secret from the public.
Reilly also highlights another telling quote by Representative Marcy Kaptur during the hearing on Wednesday, when she told Geithner, “A lot of people think that the president of the New York Fed works for the U.S. government. But in fact you work for the private banks that elected you.”
Reilly savages Tim Geithner’s denial of any involvement in the scandal and concludes with stating, “When unelected and unaccountable agencies pick banking winners while trying to end-run Congress, even as taxpayers are forced to lend, spend and guarantee about $8 trillion to prop up the financial system, our collective blood should boil.”
As we have constantly emphasized, as the global government and the financial takeover accelerates, it’s becoming harder and harder for the elite to hide the true intention of what they are doing, which is centralizing power into fewer hands, destroying sovereignty and creating a one world order run by an unelected, undemocratic authoritarian system.
So whereas “conspiracy theorists” were once sidelined as paranoid kooks, as more and more of what they warned about comes to fruition, they gain more credibility and the establishment finds it more difficult to neutralize what they are saying by means of character assassination.
The Bloomberg writer’s admission that the “conspiracy theorists” were probably right reminds us of former Clinton advisor Dick Morris’ appearance on Fox News last year, when he pointed out that people who have been sounding the alarm bells over a global government takeover for decades have also been vindicated.

ABC News: Feds Quietly Attempting to ID Mutallab’s Handler, Whose Existence They’ve Refused To Acknowledge For Past Month
TheEndRun.com | January 28, 2010
Buried at the very end of a two page article published on ABC News on January 22, 2010, is this quote:
Federal agents also tell ABCNews.com they are attempting to identify a man who passengers said helped Abdulmutallab change planes for Detroit when he landed in Amsterdam from Lagos, Nigeria.
Authorities had initially discounted the passenger accounts, but the agents say there is a growing belief the man have played a role to make sure Abdulmutallab “did not get cold feet.”
In the comments section of the article, the following comment appears, which was ostensibly written by Flight 253 passenger Kurt Haskell:
This is Kurt H-Flight 253 PassengerI find it really interesting that this article supports my story that the media has discredited for weeks. Specifically, I am referring to my account that an Indian Man (Sharp Dressed Man) helped Mutallab on Flight 253. The official version since early January has been that over 200 hours of security video have been reviewed and show nothing. This media account has been very irritating to me as I know what I saw and yet I was immediately discredited. We now have a retraction from the official story. Too bad abc chose to bury this story in a somewhat unrelated story. It should be front page news [...] ‘How about an apology ABC?
While I cannot 100% verify that this comment — which was posted by the user “haskelllaw” — was actually written by lawyer Kurt Haskell, it most likely was, especially since Kurt’s wife, Lori Haskell, has written a similar response on her blog:
Why is this not total breaking news?????… I think we now know WHY the video is not being released. Because IT SHOWS WHAT KURT SAID!!!!!! I mean, where is his apology? Where? They come out in the media, basically calling Kurt a liar, then they take it back, but it is in the bottom of another nonrelated article. Ridiculous. And still, to date, no authorities contactinig KURT to ask him to look at the freaking video and help identify the guy. It’s so insane to me. We have an eyewitness to this, and they just don’t care.
Kurt Haskell has indeed been telling the story about this man since immediately after the Christmas Day incident. On December 26, Sheena Harrison of MLive.com reported:
A Michigan man [Kurt Haskell] who was aboard Northwest Airlines Flight 253 says he witnessed Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab trying to board the plane in Amsterdam without a passport.
Haskell said he and his wife were sitting on the ground near their boarding gate in Amsterdam, which is when they saw Mutallab approach the gate with an unidentified man.
While Mutallab was poorly dressed, his friend was dressed in an expensive suit, Haskell said. He says the suited man asked ticket agents whether Mutallab could board without a passport. “The guy said, ‘He’s from Sudan and we do this all the time.’”
Mutallab is Nigerian. Haskell believes the man may have been trying to garner sympathy for Mutallab’s lack of documents by portraying him as a Sudanese refugee.
The ticket agent referred Mutallab and his companion to her manager down the hall, and Haskell didn’t see Mutallab again until after he allegedly tried to detonate an explosive on the plane.
Five days later, MLive.com published an update written by Haskell in which he said this about obfuscation on the part of the FBI and Dutch authories:
Please note that there is a very easy way to verify the veracity of my prior “sharp dressed man” account. Dutch police have admitted that they have reviewed the video of the “sharp dressed man” that I referenced. Note that it has not been released anywhere, You see, if my eye witness account is false, it could easily be proven by releasing the video. However, the proof of my eyewitness account would also be verified if I am telling the truth and I am. There is a reason we have only heard of the video and not seen it. dutch authorities, “RELEASE THE VIDEO!” This is the most important video in 8 years and may be all of two minutes long. Show the entire video and “DO NOT EDIT IT”! The American public deserves its own chance to attempt to identify the “sharp dressed man”. I have no doubt that if the video indicated that my account was wrong, that the video would have already swept over the entire world wide web. Instead of the video, we get a statment that the video has been viewed and that the terrorist had a passport. Each of these statements made by the FBI is a self serving play on semantics and each misses the importance of my prior “sharp dressed man” account. The importance being that the man “Tried to board the plane with an accomplice and without a passort”. The other significance is that only the airport security video can verify my eyewitness account and that it is not being released.
Who has the agenda here and who doesn’t? Think about that for a minute.
Haskell and his wife Lori have given many interviews since the Christmas Day incident. Additional information about this story, as well as embedded videos of their appearances on The Alex Jones Radio Show, Fox News, and CNN can be found in this articleFurther Reading:
Another Buried Christmas Day Arrest Uncovered: Same Route, Same Airline, Same Day, Different Flight
A geoengineering project to block the sun by simulating volcanic eruptions would be 100 times cheaper than cutting greenhouse gas emissions, climate change scientists said.
A global plan to put man-made particles into the atmosphere to deflect the Sun's heat would rapidly lower global temperatures until cuts in carbon dioxide emissions took effect, they argued.
They acknowledged concerns about geoengineering but said multi-national experiments should begin soon before it is too late to reverse climate change or in case a rogue state carried out separate measures.
The environmental scientists, David Keith of the University of Calgary in Canada, Edward Parson of the University of Michigan and Granger Morgan of Carnegie Mellon University, were writing an editorial in the journal, Nature.
They called for governments to establish a multimillion-pound fund for research into the simulated volcanoes and other solar-radiation management techniques for shielding the Earth against sunlight.
"The idea of deliberately manipulating Earth's energy balance to offset human-driven climate change strikes many as dangerous hubris," they wrote.
"Many scientists have argued against research on solar radiation management, saying that developing the capability to perform such tasks will reduce the political will to lower greenhouse gas emissions. We think that the risks of not doing research outweigh the risks of doing it.”
They said the cost of solar radiation management was 100 times lower than the price tag for cutting emissions to achieve the same effect, raising the risk that small groups of nations or even rogue states could act alone.
They wrote: "It is plausible that, after exhausting other avenues to limit climate risks, such a nation might decide to begin a gradual, well-monitored programme of deployment, even without any international agreement on its regulation.
“In this case, one nation – which need not be a large and rich industrialised country – could seize the initiative on global climate, making it extremely difficult for other powers to restrain it.”

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner faced some tough questions and even tougher criticism from the U.S. congress today about his role in the AIG bailout. RT's Lauren Lyster gives us the scoop on the grilling of Tim Geithner.
by Ron Holland
Mandatory IRAs just proposed by Obama Administration on 1/25/10 is the 1st step in stealth nationalization & forced investment of our retirement benefits to support the treasury debt market! Read the veiled report in Business Week.
A Personal Note from the Author
Dear Concerned American:
I begin with a quote from a politician who believed in an all-powerful central government and in using that power to achieve his vision for a nation. "He who has his thumb on the purse has the power." ~ Otto von Bismarck, a statesman who created the modern Germany and known as the iron chancellor
But however well-intentioned he might have been, he built the regulatory groundwork and government institutions for a centralized federal state that was later taken over by an evil political leader who created a tyranny seldom seen in the world before, or after. The tyranny started in 1933, 35 years after Bismarck's death, was National Socialism and the leader was Adolf Hitler. All of this came after Germany's military defeat in World War One and a national debt crisis, followed by hyperinflation and currency collapse
I fear that today the control, nationalization and ultimate confiscation of trillions in private US retirement plan assets is on the horizon. Rick Santelli alluded to the possible nationalization and forced investment into treasuries on CNBC as recently as January 8, 2010. There was also similar coverage on Bloomberg and Business Week.
Reports out of Washington indicate that new retirement annuities may be promoted by Obama aides. This is just the beginning! The question every successful American with substantial retirement assets must ask is "what will you do if our retirement funds are forced to become the buyer of last resort for US treasury obligations?" Unless you believe Congress and Washington bureaucrats will do a fair job of allocating and distributing your personal retirement assets between yourself and others, you must begin now to protect your assets.
As the United States moves into a new decade of military overreach abroad and national bankruptcy at home, Washington is on a desperate search for more revenue and a solution to the future financing of the trillions in national debt obligations currently held by foreign central banks and investors. Economists, politicians and smart investors know the dollar's days as the world reserve currency are numbered, as is our ability to finance the national debt.
Although the historical government solution to unsustainable government debt loads has always been the destruction of the debts by currency depreciation and eventual hyperinflation, there is always an intermediate step used to buy more time for the politicians in power. This action, usually side-stepped and downplayed by the establishment historians paid to hide the real facts of history, is wealth confiscation. Napoleon had it right when he stated, "History is a state of lies agreed upon."
The largest source of liquid private wealth remaining in the United States is the $15 trillion in private retirement funds. The ultimate ownership, control and future of these funds has already been compromised and exchanged for the favorable tax treatment of private retirement plans. Congress writes the laws, so they can tax, penalize, hold your funds hostage and, although they'd never use the word "confiscate," use your assets at their discretion.
The retirement trap I'm writing about is only a proposal at the present time and since it may well begin in the latter years of the Obama Administration, assuming the Democrats can somehow maintain their majorities in Congress, I'm calling it the "Obama Retirement Trap." But make no mistake, the government need for current revenue and their frenzied search for liquidity to monetize their debt obligations is an unspoken quest of both political parties. The establishments of both political parties will do whatever it takes to stay in power, including the raiding and pillaging of your retirement funds.

Of course, we’re not saying you should go out and spend your entire 401k retirement account on 5 gallon buckets of rice, but diversifying into hard assets on a variety of levels could be a great investment. As the US Dollar continues its decline over the coming years, the price of essential consumer goods is likely to rise. Certain goods, however, like real estate, cars and anything that is driven primarily by credit expansion may experience a deflationary impact in real dollar terms, while others, like food and energy may see explosive price increases.
Paul Mladjenovic of SuperMoneyLinks.com discusses 3 Things Everyone Needs to Do with Money in 2010:
“OUR GOVERNMENT CAN NOT SPEND OUR COUNTRY INTO TRLLIONS OF DOLLARS OF DEBT WITHOUT CONSEQUENCE.
I am working on my next set of forecasts and seminars but before they are out, I want everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) to consider 3 simple things to gain greater financial peace of mind:
-Diversify away from paper assets.
-Re-focus your portfolio with emphasis on “human need”.
In Buy Commodities at Today’s Lower Prices, Consume at Tomorrow’s Higher Prices we offered some ideas about how to be a ‘prepper’ and ‘investor’ simultaneously.
“If you are a prepper, for example, who is already stocking essentials foods and goods, you’re way ahead of the game. As commodity prices continue to rise for a variety of reasons, your “investment” is paying off in real terms. Buy 10 pounds of rice today for $10, and when that same bag of rice goes to $20 a year or two from now, you can say you earned a 100% return on your investment! And the great thing about your investment, is you don’t have any counter party risk, for the most part, meaning that you own the physical good and it is in your possession — you take delivery at any time!”
For those interested in investing some of their wealth into real, tangible assets, consider the following as food for thought:
- Precious metals
Though gold and silver are no longer considered money by most “mainstream” economists, the fact is that central banks in China, India and Russia have been continuing to stockpile precious metals over the last decade, and they will likely continue to do so going forward. Why? Because as all or most of the paper currencies around the globe are debased, gold and silver will become the de facto monetary unit against which other currencies are valued. As Dr. Marc Faber has said on several occasions, “Own gold and become your own central bank.” Many contrarian financial advisers who lean towards the Austrian school of economics recommend allocating 10% to 20% of your current investment/retirement portfolio to gold. If you are banking on having that money when you retire, consider speaking within your financial adviser about purchasing precious metals in the form of mining companies or ETFs. If possible, a portion of your holdings should be in physical bullion like bars and coins, which will provide added security as you will have no counter party risk because you have it in your possession.
As the US Dollar loses value and other countries become hesitant about fund our trillion dollar debts, the cost of food will continue to rise. Combine the dollar’s monetary issues with the fact the many farmers around the world are unable to gain access to loans to continue or expand operations, and you have the potential for prices increases no just because of dollar debasement, but supply problems. The other threat for food is that we may very well experience a perfect storm event, such as that experienced in the dust bowl of the 1930’s, meaning that heavy rains, or heat or cold may affect agricultural output, further straining supplies and pushing prices higher. Foods like rice, legumes, pastas, wheat, oats, and canned goods could be purchased today and stored, in some cases, for up to five years or longer. Consider the price increases that can happen in these food stuffs over the next five years and this investment may see significant gains. And again, you eliminate counter-party risk because you are holding the tangible assets yourself.

- Sustainable Living
Well known trend forecaster Gerald Celente has suggested that one of the mega-trends of this decade will be living on less and becoming more self sustaining. Individuality will return to America, and a push to distance oneself from the “grid” will take off for a variety of reasons. Rising food and energy costs are likely to be two of the major catalysts for this trend. How can you invest for yourself? First, consider investing your time and money into skills development like gardening, farming, sewing, woodworking, or hunting, as these skills can certainly be an investment that will pay off in the future. While it may not be feasible for most to become farmers in terms of commercial enterprise, it can be accomplished on a personal level by those who have a bit of desire and choose to expand their skills base. Urban gardens are already popping up all over America as the micro-farming trend continues to gain acceptance. Even in the suburbs, on a fifth of an acre of land, those with the ability to think outside the office cube can grow enough food to support their entire family for a year.
For those concerned with rising energy costs, your options are basically limited to investing in energy stocks and ETFs, or, investing in yourself and create your own supply of energy. Learning how to develop and implement a power grid in the comfort of your own home will not only give you the skills to earn a living in the future, but to provide nearly unlimited energy for your household through use of solar, wind and hydro power. Investments into alternative energies for your home may seem costly, but not if you consider the rising cost of your electric and gas bills over the next couple of decades. Sustainable living investments are not one-off investments, say, like storing a bucket of beans, but rather, pay dividends forever.
Though not often considered as investments, extra clothing, especially things like socks, underwear, house shirts, shoes, sweat shirts and sweat pants, will likely move up in price as well. While adults may be able to stretch their close for several years without replenishing their closets, children are a whole different story. If you’ve got kids, this is one investment that can really pay off. Purchasing graduating sizes of clothing for your kids with a time horizon of 3 - 5 years can really save you money down the road. It is true that in America today, these items are readily available and imagining a scenario where these items will not be on store shelves is hard to do. But consider the East Block circa 1985, and you’ll have a different perspective. Because of isolationist policies, closed currency and price controls, these items were very difficult to come by. If the US experiences a currency crisis, it will have an immediate and significant impact on the USA’s ability to acquire goods from manufacturers around the world, as the price for goods will be difficult to determine because of the potential for massive currency fluctuations. If not for yourself, consider stocking some reserve clothing for your kids.
- Hard Assets in General
Recently, President Chavez of Venezuela devalued the Bolivar, Venezuela’s currency, and within a few hours residents of the country flocked to stores to spend any physical cash they had on hand or in their bank accounts. When a currency is devalued, either over night or over a period of months and years, the purchasing power is destroyed. What you could buy today for $50 will cost $100 later. We’re not suggesting you spend all of the cash you have, but take into consideration some of the things you regularly spend money on daily, monthly or yearly. Can you purchase those items now and save them for later use? If so, wouldn’t you rather pay 10% or 20% or even 40% less now than three years from now?
It is important to be prudent with where one might invest their money, as it is impossible to say for certain that an inflationary environment is in our future, and which goods will be affected by increased prices. But all signs point to an eventual devaluation, officially or unofficially, of the US dollar. While the aforementioned “investments” are not traditionally accepted and your financial adviser might think you’ve gone off the deep end, they are worth considering and provide you with another option for protecting your wealth.
