Next Mossad False-Flag to Come From LAX

"Los Angeles gives Israeli operatives "unfettered" access to their airport

Los Angeles Mayor Villaraigosa signs LAX "anti-terror" agreement with Israeli Zionists

Los Angeles, Alta California - June 16, 2008 - (ACN) Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa signed an agreement during his trip to Israel that greatly endangers the security of all Angelenos and of travellers who utilize the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The agreement signed on Friday will allow right-wing Israeli Likud Party operatives complete access to all areas of the LAX under the pretext of making "expert" periodic reviews of anti-terrorist measures at the world's fifth busiest airport. The agreement also calls for city taxpayers to pay three Israelis $1000.00 each per day plus all travel, lodging and other expenses while making "security" inspections at the LAX....

Damn, LA, what's with this? Has all of that smog affected your memory? Erased words like 9/11 and Huntleigh?

Let's refresh that memory about Huntleigh, as posted by AZTLAN

The security at Boston's Logan Airport during the terror attack of 911 was under the control of Huntleigh USA which is a wholly owned subsidiary of an Israeli company called International Consultants on Targeted Security (ICTS) that is run by "former Israeli military commanding officers and veterans of government intelligence and security agencies"

There are today an increasing number of Americans who are convinced that 911 was an inside job carried out by USA Neocons in collaboration with the Israeli MOSSAD and the criminal Likud Party. Americans who do not believe the conclusions of the "US 9/11 Commission Report" include university professors, physicists, engineers, and many other professionals. There is now a large very credible body of evidence that proves that 911 was in fact an inside job. These intelligent and patriotic Americans are today demanding an independent re-investigation of the 911 terror attacks. They say that 911 was engineered in order to justify the war against Iraq and to benefit Zionists here and in Israel.

This is the type of "security" you're wanting to provide to Los Angeles? Gotta a death wish or something?

Mr. Mayor, why not do a little checking on these "security" experts before you hand over the keys to LAX, it looks like you've got the contacts.

Take one, a certain Nahum Liss, who is currently director of security planning, control and projects for the Israel Airport Authority at Israel's Ben Gurion Airport. Do a search of Nahum and you'll find he's a ghost in the machine, like if he had no life before taking the Ben Gurion job, which means this guy is probably mobbed up with either Israel's internal security service, the Shin Bet or their external intelligence organization/hot bed of assassins called the MOSSAD.

But there is one small reference to Nahum. Seems like Nahum was present at one of those "attacks" against Israeli's. Here's Nahum own words:

"I was sitting about 30 meters away when a terrorist
blew himself up, along with one of the women doing a security check," Liss recalled, his ordinarily booming voice growing quiet.

Uhh, Nahum, given Israel's propensity for setting off false-flags to make the murderer the victim, when that person blew up, you weren't holding any kind of device in your paws, were you?

Considering that LAX has already had several security studies done that pointed out what needed to be done at LAX, why is Los Angeles letting Israeli "security" ops roam at will thru LAX?

One was issued in 2004, the year after Villaraigosa was elected to the City Council, and the other was issued in 2006, the year after Villaraigosa was elected Mayor

The second Rand Corporation reported notes Villaraigosa's failure to implement the recommendations made in the first report:

"In Stevens et al. (2004), we found that the key to a successful strategy of deterrence against an unpredictable enemy is to understand and reduce LAX's vulnerabilities and the potential consequences of an attack, making it a less attractive target. The airport is vulnerable in a number of ways but particularly to large truck bombs, luggage bombs, and curbside car bombs. Two steps, relatively easy and cost-effective to implement, could mitigate the risks from all three of these threats.

"1. Reduce the probability of the success of the bombers by adding permanent vehicle checkpoints at the entrances to LAX.

"2. Reduce potential consequences at LAX by reducing crowds on the sidewalks and inside terminals.

"One reason that reducing the crowds at the terminals is more cost effective than adding security film to the glass is that reducing the crowds mitigates the potential consequences from car bombs, luggage bombs, and suicide bombers, while applying film to the glass is only effective (if properly applied) against car bombs. We stand by our 2004 conclusions."

So, Mr. Mayor, just why are you letting MOSSAD ops roam freely about your airport?

"Recruiters have turned to high schools to help fill the ranks of the all-volunteer military. And they need them more than ever.

"Peace activist in N.C. fights for the right to counter recruiting" by Mitch Weiss, Associated Press | August 31, 2008

WILKESBORO, N.C. - Sally Ferrell bounded from the truck and grabbed a poster board sign that read: "War is not the Answer."

Over the years, she has organized dozens of peace vigils like this one being set up in a parking lot. Find common ground, she has always preached, and any conflict can be resolved. But she is now engaged in a conflict of her own - a dispute over military recruiting in high schools that has polarized rural Wilkes County.

For three years, Ferrell has asked permission to distribute pamphlets and other materials that warn students to think twice before joining the military. But the school superintendent has stopped her, calling her activities unpatriotic. The American Civil Liberties Union, calling it a First Amendment issue, has threatened to sue.

"The students need to know there are alternatives to the military," said Ferrell, a Quaker. "But they're not getting the other side."

Recruiters have turned to high schools to help fill the ranks of the all-volunteer military. And they need them more than ever. After five years of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan and longer deployments, the military has been hard pressed to meet recruitment demands. They say US casualties - more than 4,600 soldiers killed and 64,000 wounded in both wars - have dampened recruiting.

In recent years, thousands of people like Ferrell have joined dozens of counter recruiting groups. They say recruiters have given young people misleading information about military service and often target high schools in poor and rural areas where options for graduating students are limited; the activists want students to know they have prospects besides the military.

Most schools have allowed counter recruiters inside. Wilkes County's opposition could trigger a legal battle. "Are we going to pursue litigation? I think it's pretty clear that the school board isn't giving us any choice to do anything else," said Katherine Parker, legal director of the ACLU's North Carolina chapter.

Tucked in the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Wilkes County has a military tradition going back to Colonel Benjamin Cleveland, a Revolutionary War commander who helped defeat the British in the Battle of Kings Mountain. It's a rural county where people worked in textile mills and furniture factories until those manufacturing jobs left. They've been replaced by fast-food and retail jobs. The faltering economy has made Wilkes County a fertile recruiting ground for the military, members of Ferrell's group said.

"Many students feel like they have no future," said Tom Morris, 56, a retired engineer and small business owner. Pointing to an abandoned furniture factory across the street, he said, "At one time, hundreds of people worked there. There was hope. Now, it's empty. There are just no jobs."

Helen Clark, another activist, recalled the night Ferrell decided to become a counter recruiter. They were having dinner with friends, including several high school teachers. She said the teachers were upset that recruiters were at the county's five high schools weekly and approaching students in the lunchrooms.

"They felt they were putting too much pressure on teenagers to join the military," said Clark, a 53-year-old social worker."

Obama Supporters Bailing to Support McCain Over Palin Pick

That is the MSM narrative you are going to be fed, America, as John McCain is awarded the presidency in another rigged election.

One supporter of Barack Obama visiting from the Chicago area, Melissa Huck, a 47-year-old Democrat, said... the addition of Palin made her see both Obama and McCain as independent-minded. "Both of them are offering change."

Oh, BOTH are offering CHANGE now -- even though NEITHER IS!!!!

VP Pick Palin Captures Women's Vote for McCain

Meanwhile, the
MSM continues the cover-ups and lies in regard to the Alaskan governor. How can you believe them on anything, readers, when they tell so many lies and half-truths?

"McCain's VP pick stirs excitement, bafflement among women" by Lisa Wangsness, Globe Staff | August 31, 2008

ST. PAUL - A day after John McCain stunned the nation by announcing that he had selected Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska as his running mate, women across the nation were taking in the news, trying to absorb the idea that this little-known governor with a fascinating story and an almost impossibly short record could become the first female vice president.

At the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St. Paul, which will host the Republican National Convention this week, women in this critical swing state expressed a range of first impressions. There was genuine excitement that a woman could become vice president. There was bafflement that McCain picked someone with so little experience to join his ticket, even anger from those who viewed the choice as clumsy tokenism.

But two things were clear: The 44-year-old Palin intrigued them as much as any vice presidential pick could have, and few know enough about Palin to have a real opinion. "I listened to the news all day yesterday," said Kathy Grey, a 49-year-old homemaker from Maple Grove who is leaning toward McCain, as her young son ate a pretzel near the midway yesterday.

"I'm at a loss for words," said Maryann Grogan, 54, a mortgage banker and Republican from Marine on St. Croix, as she strolled around the Dairy Building, where inside a rotating glass cylinder a woman carved a bust of a young woman in a block of butter.

Grogan said she loved that Palin seemed as if she was "willing to stand up to the good old boys and big business" and that Palin, like Grogan, is a self-described "hockey mom." But she worried about McCain's motivations. "I hope they didn't do it because they think women are stupid enough to vote for her just because she's a woman," she said.

McCain's strategists do hope that Palin will help McCain attract disaffected Democratic and independent women who supported Hillary Clinton in this year's long and bitter Democratic primary contest. But a number of Clinton supporters said yesterday that they wouldn't consider doing so, including Pamela Ehrlich, a 58-year-old part-time food taster for General Mills. Ehrlich, a Democrat, was thrilled at the idea of seeing a woman president in her lifetime and was very disappointed when Clinton lost.

As she paused outside the booth for Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, Ehrlich said McCain's strategists must be "insane" to think she would pick a woman for the sake of her gender when the differences between McCain and Obama on healthcare, taxes, abortion rights, and the Iraq war are so vast.

"I personally think her choice is demeaning to any woman," she said. "I don't dislike the woman. But can you imagine John McCain dying and her taking over the country? You've got to be kidding. It insults me that he did that."

Others, though, loved the idea - even one supporter of Barack Obama visiting from the Chicago area. Melissa Huck, a 47-year-old Democrat, said Palin seemed "young and passionate and she didn't seem afraid." "I think a lot of people are ready to see a woman in office," said Huck. She said the addition of Palin made her see both Obama and McCain as independent-minded. "Both of them are offering change."

Palin's personal story, as a former beauty queen and mother of five who became a wildly popular governor, intrigued women on both sides of the aisle. Many said that in her debut speech she looked and sounded pleasingly different from the presidential candidates they have listened to over the last year and a half.

"If she is what she says she is, it'd be wonderful," said June Radintz, a 60-year-old retired nurse and Republican from Long Lake. "It sounds like she doesn't go with the flow. I'm tired of the same old rhetoric. She's refreshing."

The sight of a candidate for national office with an infant child captivated some mothers. But many said that their own experience made them wonder how Palin could handle campaigning, never mind helping to run the country, while caring for an infant son with Down syndrome.

Yup, keep peddling an OBVIOUS LIE, MSM!

Not helping your cause, and am I ever glad I won't be purchasing tomorrow!

"I have a 2-year-old and a 2-month-old, and I can hardly handle going to my regular job, let alone trotting around the world," said Serena Picken, a 25-year-old undeclared voter who works as a nursing assistant at a facility for people with Alzheimer's disease, as she pushed her baby son, Ben.

Grey, though, dismissed such talk as sexist and said she found Palin easy to relate to - and perhaps, she said, "That makes her a more well-rounded person."

And a LIAR, too -- just like the AmeriKan MSM!

"McCain, Palin make stop in Pa." by Tom Raum, Associated Press | August 31, 2008

ST. PAUL - McCain and Palin made a morning stop at Tom's Diner in Pittsburgh's trendy Southside neighborhood. The running mates, with spouses in tow, greeted patrons and posed for pictures. Palin's daughters Willow and Piper were also on hand, with Willow carrying Palin's 4-month old son, Trig.


Hey, what is ONE MORE LIE amonst the MILLLIONS upon MILLIONS told by the AmeriKan MSM, huh?

"GOP speaker roster to steer far from Deep South base" by Sasha Issenberg, Globe Staff | August 31, 2008

Jennifer Blei Stockman, national chair of the Republican Majority for Choice, which supports abortion rights, put it more bluntly: "It's like a beauty contest. They put the speakers in front that will have the greatest appeal."

Since Pat Buchanan declared a "culture war" in Houston in 1992, Republicans have worked to project a softer image from their convention stages. US Representative Susan Molinari of New York was the party's 1996 keynote speaker, and four years later the convention dais was graced with a parade of minorities, including Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice. Giuliani, Schwarzenegger, and McCain stood at Bush's side for his 2004 nomination.

Is that every a revision of history or what?

They don't remember the 2004 Republican convention with its "TERROR, TERROR, TERROR, 9/11, 9/11, 9/11" rhetoric?

While the marquee speakers are more liberal on social issues than McCain or Palin - Giuliani, Ridge, and Lieberman support abortion rights - Republican activists say the program does not reflect any shift in the dominant positions within their party.

"This is exactly what they did at the convention in 2004," said Stockman, adding that her Republican Majority for Choice has stopped fighting the platform's abortion plank because "it wasn't worth our trouble. It was all smoke-and-mirrors," she said. "The party wanted to present a moderate front because they realized it would most appeal to the general electorate."

Meanwhile this year, the dominant force on the convention's agenda could be Gustav: Convention planners are closely monitoring the hurricane, which is expected to make landfall tomorrow afternoon.

"It will have a very serious impact on the convention," said Kathleen Shanahan, a Republican strategist from Florida and one of the convention's honorary deputy permanent chairs. "When one part of the country is getting hurt, it's hard to have a national celebration."

That never stopped them before!!!!

Maybe GOD is finally getting through to these assholes, huh?


Political Conventions Just Another Day in Washington

"It is not unlike what goes on in Washington every day of the year. The characters are all the same" -- Massie Ritsch, communications director for the Center for Responsive Politics, said by telephone from Denver, where he was investigating the corporate influence on the Democratic convention before heading to the GOP gathering starting tomorrow in St. Paul.

"Firms donated at least $112m to conventions" by Bryan Bender, Globe Staff | August 31, 2008

WASHINGTON - After it was discovered that ITT had received a favorable antitrust ruling in return for donating $400,000 to the 1972 Republican National Convention, Congress barred the use of corporate funds and established a public financing system for political conventions.

Nevertheless, this year one of the largest financial backers of the Democratic and Republican conventions is none other than AT&T, another telecommunications giant.

In what watchdog groups say is a gaping loophole in campaign finance laws, public records show that nearly 200 pharmaceutical, information technology, automobile, airline, and other corporations have donated at least $112 million to the "host committees" organizing the 2008 political extravaganzas in Denver and St. Paul. In addition, they are bankrolling countless parties and closed-door receptions for lobbyists and members of Congress attending the conclaves.

One of the co-chairs of the host committee in St. Paul is Governor Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota, who is also co-chairman of Senator John McCain's presidential campaign.

Pawlenty hosted meetings with corporate CEOs to raise funds for the GOP convention, according to records obtained by the Campaign Finance Institute under the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act. "Talking points" drafted by the governor's staff for one of his pitches instructed telling the CEOs that donations would give them the opportunity to "connect with influential government officials."

The Minneapolis-St. Paul host committee asserts, however, that it is following the regulations set forth by the FEC.

"We are playing by the rules," said Teresa McFarland, a committee spokeswoman. "We are trying to relieve the burden that would otherwise fall on the local community," such as the cost of transportation, insurance, media facilities, host committee offices, and providing "hospitality" for thousands of delegates and other attendees. These companies have come together not because of politics but to showcase our cities," she said.

The outright lying really bothers me.

Private contributions to host committees have skyrocketed from about $1 million in 1980 to $8 million in 1992, $56 million in 2000, and $142 million in 2004, according to disclosure forms. The totals for this year are not yet known because the committees are not required to report the data until 60 days after the conventions.

All this money in politics while this nation has so many neglected needs. Just warms you right you, doesn't it?

But the cozy relationship among corporations, their lobbyists, and elected officials has been on full display. One Denver event organized by a collection of banks, credit card companies, and mortgage lenders included at least three members of Congress with direct oversight of the banking industry. The message of the event, according to attendees: that the industry is properly educating consumers and does not need further government regulation.

There have been countless other gatherings, including breakfasts, lunches, and parties sponsored by firms with lobbying interests. One in Denver by the Truman National Security Project, which advocates for more hawkish defense policies, was sponsored by defense giant Lockheed Martin.

"It is not unlike what goes on in Washington every day of the year," Massie Ritsch, communications director for the Center for Responsive Politics, said by telephone from Denver, where he was investigating the corporate influence on the Democratic convention before heading to the GOP gathering starting tomorrow in St. Paul. "The characters are all the same."


Boston Globe Ignores Illegal Immigrants Stuck in Big Easy

Would it surprise you that the Boston Globe has "updated," I mean CENSORED this item?

About two dozen
Hispanic men gathered under oak trees near Claiborne Avenue. They were wary of boarding any bus, even though a city spokesman said no identity papers would be required. "The problem is,'' said Pictor Soto, 44, of Peru, "there will be immigration people there and we're all undocumented.''

"Fearing Gustav, 1 million flee Gulf Coast; Storm could make landfall tomorrow" by Becky Bohrer, Associated Press | August 31, 2008

NEW ORLEANS - Spooked by predictions that Hurricane Gustav could grow into a Category 5 monster, an estimated 1 million residents fled the Gulf Coast yesterday - well ahead of the official order to get out of the way of a storm taking dead aim at Louisiana.

Mayor Ray Nagin, saying the danger to the city was growing, ordered the mandatory evacuation of the city's west bank at 8 a.m. today. The order will become mandatory on the east bank at noon.

Yesterday, residents took to buses, trains, planes, and cars - clogging roadways leading away from New Orleans, still reeling three years after Hurricane Katrina flooded 80 percent of the city and killed about 1,600 across the region.

Authorities evacuated at least 240,000 people from western Cuba, including Isla de la Juventud. The storm has already killed more than 80 people in the Caribbean. If current forecasts hold up, Gustav will make landfall tomorrow afternoon somewhere between the northeast corner of Texas and western Mississippi.

The hurricane slammed into Cuba's mainland after roaring over its Isla de Juventud province, where it toppled telephone poles, mango, and almond trees and peeled back the tin roofs of homes. Ana Isla, the province's civil defense chief, said there were many people injured on the island south of mainland Cuba, but no reports of deaths. She said nearly all its roads were washed out and that some regions were heavily flooded.

Forecasters warned it was still too soon to say whether New Orleans would take another direct hit, but residents weren't taking any chances judging by the bumper-to-bumper traffic pouring from the city. Gas stations along interstate highways were running out of fuel, and phone circuits were jammed.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center said they were surprised at how quickly Gustav gained strength as it charged toward Cuba. It went from a tropical storm to a Category 4 hurricane in about 24 hours, and was likely to become a Category 5 - with sustained winds of 156 miles per hour or more - by today.

God is talking to you, America!!!!

"That puts a different light on our evacuations and hopefully that will send a very clear message to the people in the Gulf Coast to really pay attention," said Federal Emergency Management Agency chief David Paulison.

As part of the evacuation plan New Orleans developed after Hurricane Katrina, residents who had no other way to get out of the city waited on a line that snaked for more than a mile through the parking lot of the city's Union Passenger Terminal. From there, they were to board motor coaches bound for shelters in north Louisiana.

"I don't like it," said Joseph Jones Jr., 61, who draped a towel over his head to block the blazing sun. "Going someplace you don't know, people you don't know. And then when you come back, is your house going to be OK?" Jones had been in line for 2 1/2 hours, but he wasn't complaining. During Katrina, he'd been stranded on a highway overpass.

Others led children or pushed strollers with one hand and pulled luggage with the other. Volunteers handed out bottled water, and medics were nearby in case people became sick from the heat. Unlike Katrina, when thousands took refuge inside the Superdome, there will be no "last resort" shelter, and those who stay behind accept "all responsibility for themselves and their loved ones," said the city's emergency preparedness director, Jerry Sneed.

Yet the presence of 2,000 National Guard troops that were expected to join 1,400 New Orleans police officers patrolling the streets following the evacuation - along with Governor Bobby Jindal's request to neighboring states for rescue teams - suggested officials were expecting stragglers.

Standing outside his restaurant in the city's Faubourg Marigny district, Dale DeBruyne prepared for Gustav the way he did for Katrina - stubbornly. "I'm not leaving," he said. DeBruyne, 52, said his house was stocked with storm supplies, including generators. "I stayed for Katrina," he said, "and I'll stay again."

Others were taking no chances.

Lee Isaacson, 52, a computer consultant, was boarding up windows in his home, which flooded during Katrina. He planned to take his family to North Carolina. "We're doing this more for looters than the storm," Isaacson said, recalling the chaos that followed Katrina.

Many residents said the evacuation was more orderly than Katrina, although a plan to electronically log and track evacuees with a bar code system failed and was aborted to keep the buses moving. Officials said information on evacuees would be taken when they reached their destinations.

Advocates criticized the decision not to establish a shelter, warning that day laborers and the poorest residents will fall through the cracks. About two dozen men gathered under oak trees near Claiborne Avenue, where on better days they would be waiting for work rebuilding from Katrina.


And LOOK at what the WEB CUT from my PRINTED PAPER!!!!

"New Orleans orders mandatory evacuation"

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Advocates criticized the decision not to establish a shelter, warning that day laborers and the poorest residents would fall through the cracks.

About two dozen Hispanic men gathered under oak trees near Claiborne Avenue. They were wary of boarding any bus, even though a city spokesman said no identity papers would be required.


"The problem is,'' said Pictor Soto, 44, of Peru, "there will be immigration people there and we're all undocumented.''

Farther west, where Gustav appeared more likely to make landfall, Guard troops were also being sent to Lake Charles. The National Hurricane Center issued a hurricane watch for Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and part of Texas, meaning hurricane conditions are possible within 36 hours.

Two East Texas counties also issued mandatory evacuation orders, and authorities in Mississippi began evacuating the mentally ill and aged from facilities along the coast. National Guard soldiers on Mississippi's coast were going door-to-door to alert thousands of families in FEMA trailers and cottages that they should be prepared to evacuate Sunday.

In Alabama, shelters were opened and 3,000 National Guard personnel assembled to help evacuees from Mississippi and Louisiana.


So WHAT is with the CENSORSHIP of the AmerIkan MSM?!

That's one reason I kept buying them, actually, to catch them in this shit!!!

But is it worth a 33% increase in the scitte sheet?

U.S. Border Guards Abandon Posts

"Harsh conditions cause many Border Patrol recruits to quit" by Elliot Spagat, Associated Press | August 31, 2008

IMPERIAL BEACH, Calif. - Wanted: law enforcement officers. Must work graveyard shifts alone in remote towns along the Mexican border, put in long hours, and perform well in triple-digit temperatures.

That message is never advertised in US Border Patrol recruitment brochures, but the sobering reality is that the jobs entail such a difficult working environment that about 30 percent of agents quit within 18 months.

The BG here didn't say that a while back, though: The Security of a Government Job

"This has complications up and down the line," said Richard Stana, director of homeland security issues at the Government Accountability Office. "You're constantly in a recruiting mode. . . . If this population keeps churning, you're constantly training."

The Border Patrol's struggle to keep new hires has become more evident as the agency approaches President Bush's target of 18,000 agents by the end of the year, up from 12,000 two years ago and double the number from eight years ago. The hiring surge means 42 percent of agents have less than three years on the job.

The GAO estimates that taxpayers pay $14,700 for each trainee at the Border Patrol Academy in Artesia, N.M. That 2006 figure does not include the many additional hours that senior agents spend training hires during a two-year probationary period.

Money aside, a revolving door means a large percentage of the force will always be inexperienced. "You've got to fill the slots, but you want quality people who are not going to leave," said Jeremy Wilson, associate director of the Center for Quality Policing at the Rand Corporation. "You don't want to spend time and resources on someone if they're just going to up and leave."

About 20 percent of Border Patrol recruits don't graduate from the academy, which lasts up to 95 days for trainees who need to learn Spanish. More leave after going to their stations.

The Border Patrol warns recruits that their first assignments are often in small, isolated towns, some with poor schools and medical care. The heat can be stifling in places like Calexico, Calif., where the average daily high temperature is 104 degrees in July.

That's not what the lead-in and brochure say!! WTF is with the MSM lying?!

Some recruits get homesick. New hires must work on the Mexican border. After two years, they can seek a transfer to the Canadian border or to Washington, D.C., but competition for those jobs can be fierce.

The high cost of living is a drawback in San Diego. A Border Patrol agent starts at $36,658 a year, although overtime can increase pay up to 25 percent. After three years, pay can approach $70,000 a year, including overtime.

That's it? That's it for PROTECTING US while pukes at the Smithsonian rape the taxpayers?

Now THAT is disrespect to our brave border patrols!!!!

Boredom is another job hazard. Agents in Imperial Beach wait alone in parked jeeps and pickups, waiting for migrants to jump the border fence and make a run for the nearest patch of stores and homes.

Darin Bowdin of Sacramento, who joined the station almost two years ago, wants to be promoted to a special unit - like all-terrain vehicle, horseback, boat patrol, or SWAT-style teams - but those jobs are off-limits until he finishes two years. For now, the 27-year-old says: "I've just got to sit my time on the line watching the fence."

The agency is going to extraordinary lengths to find applicants. It is sponsoring NASCAR and professional bull-riding contests. Specialized teams focus on hiring women and African-Americans.


Gee, if I didn't know better, I'd say the American people are rejecting the globalists' militarism and New World Order, huh?

New York City's Big Pit

As is always the case, New York is bigger and outdoes Boston.

See: The Big Pit

"Critics say NYC plant costs soak taxpayers" by Jennifer Peltz, Associated Press | August 31, 2008

NEW YORK - It requires enough concrete to build a sidewalk from New York to Miami and enough pipe to reach the top of the Empire State Building 140 times over. Workers carved out enough dirt from the ground to fill more than 100,000 dump trucks.

The colossal effort is a water filtration plant being built 10 stories beneath a Bronx driving range, a one-of-a-kind project intended to become a nearly invisible part of the city's infrastructure.

But the plant has been anything but hidden so far. The plant's completion date has been pushed back six years, and its price tag, which early estimates put at $660 million, is now $2.8 billion. Costs, delays, seven-figure fines, and a brush with a high-profile Mafia case have sharpened criticism of the city's handling of a project that three city watchdog agencies and a group of community leaders are monitoring.

"The bottom line is that to build this water plant, the taxpayers are getting soaked," state Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz said. "It's like government at its worst."

I've been coming to the unfortunate conclusion that government is just one big looting operation, folks -- because it is!!!!

Despite the problems, officials say they will not be deterred from building what they see as the latest far-reaching project in a city full of grand monuments to civic imagination. Officials say they are making good progress despite a late start, and the cost increases are an unavoidable reflection of an industrywide trend.

"The need to complete important projects like the [water] plant has not diminished," Deputy Mayor for Operations Edward Skyler said. "We can't sit back and let others worry about the future."

The federal government has ordered the city to build what will be its first drinking water filtration facility, and the project is believed to be the first subterranean water plant in the nation. Its magnitude is hard to overlook: The pit at Van Cortlandt Park is so deep that large cranes merely peek above the rim.

By 2012, if the schedule holds, a 12-foot-wide tunnel will feed the plant up to 300 million gallons of water a day - about a quarter of the city's supply. The water will run through a complex set of steps that filter out contaminants: a chemical that makes unwanted particles clump together, air bubbles that push them to the surface to be skimmed off, and a barrier of sand and anthracite coal that strains out still more contaminants. Finally, ultraviolet light will kill bacteria and viruses small enough to have squeezed through the various filters.

New York is one of the few big US cities that doesn't filter its drinking water, long a point of pride here. It does add chlorine to disinfect its water, fluoride to help prevent tooth decay, and other chemicals that reduce acidity and prevent metals such as lead from leaching from pipes.

Don't drink the water if you go to New York!

No wonder the plastic bottles are so popular!

Most of the city's water supply, piped in from rural upstate areas more than 75 miles away, will remain unfiltered. The Bronx plant will treat the 10 to 30 percent that comes from closer reservoirs in the Croton watershed."

Bush's Business Bullscitte

I've had more than enough after 7 years of lies from this turd-shit.

How about you, America?

"Bush says economy starting to improve

President Bush said yesterday that Americans may have cause this Labor Day to start worrying less about the nation's, and their families', economic health. "There have been some recent signs that our economy is beginning to improve," Bush said in his weekly radio address. The economy, as measured by the gross domestic product, rose by 3.3 percent in the April-June quarter (AP August 31, 2008)."


"The temporary impact of the stimulus has passed, and it looks like consumer spending is on track to decline in real terms in the third quarter," said John Ryding, chief economist at RDQ Economics. "It's certainly a wake-up call to people who yesterday looked at the GDP report and said, 'Hey, the economy grew by 3.3 percent, so everything's OK.' "

Keep shoveling, Georgie shit=-spew!

Occupation Iraq: Bush Ignored Commanders On Ground

And, according to the New York Times' resident propagandist, he WON the WAR because of it. I told you that was going to be narrative for the next five months!!!!

Oh, I won't miss paying a buck for shit-shoveling propaganda, readers, not at all. I'll be LESS ANGRY here from now on because I won't be reading and purchasing lies every day.

"Doubt, debate preceded 'surge'; Bush move at odds with initial advice" by Michael R. Gordon, New York Times News Service | August 31, 2008

WASHINGTON - In January 2007, at a time when the situation in Iraq appeared the bleakest, Bush chose a bold option that was at odds with what many of his civilian and military advisers, including his field commander, initially recommended.

Translation: When Bush says he'll let the commanders on the ground decide, HE LIED AGAIN!!!!!!!

Bush's plan to send more than 20,000 troops to carry out a new counterinsurgency strategy has helped to reverse the spiral of sectarian killings in Iraq.

Well, if you are the ones CARRYING OUT the FALSE FLAGS and you STOP, yeah, I guess you would have won the war!!!!

See Occupation Iraq: Saturday Shit Shovel and associated links.

But Bush's penchant to defer to commanders in the field and to a powerful defense secretary delayed the development of a new approach until conditions in Iraq, in the words of a November 2006 analysis by the CIA, resembled anarchy and "civil war."

When the White House began its formal review of Iraq strategy that month, the Pentagon favored a stepped-up effort to transfer responsibility to Iraqi forces that would have facilitated American troop cuts.



AmeriKa's Zionist MSM Admits Iran is America

Written with the typical hatchet-job style of AmeriKa's Zionist MSM; however, there are kernels of corn truth in those logs of MSM shit!!!!

"a myriad of other voices is startling in its defiance of the party line and threatens to drown out the government message.... a more reform-minded public has become contemptuous of the... official drumbeat, the more it is tuned out."

This is the Islamofascist state of Iran, huh? Hey, what is ONE MORE LIE in pursuit of the war agenda to the Zionist AmeriKan MSM?

"Things aren't as they seem in Iran; Young tune out official drumbeat" by George Jahn, Associated Press | August 31, 2008

TEHRAN - They file in slowly, patiently submitting to body searches - men in one line, black-clad, head-scarved women in another. Most are poor, old, or very young, and most are ready for some America-bashing.

It's Friday, the Muslim holy day, and thousands of Iran's faithful are again gathering at Tehran University's main campus for what has become a weekly ritual - the men under a sprawling blue metal canopy that shelters up to 7,000, the women close by but set apart.

The heat is searing and the mood placid. But suddenly, the mullah leading the prayers is gone - and in an instant the atmosphere turns as confrontational as the new message being hurled into the microphone by his belligerent black-bearded replacement.

"America is the greatest Satan of them all!" the stocky firebrand howls. "Down with the US!" comes the response, first from a few, then from the full gathering. The voices are thunderous, but the faces are curiously emotionless. It's not the first time this crowd has been worked to lash out at Washington, and it won't be the last.

Thank God AmeriKa and her politicians aren't like that, huh, Amurkn?

What's that blank look on your face? You eat too much shit today?

The expressionless faces offer a clue - this is a regular, staged performance, a message from the official Iran, which is only one face of Iran.


For all it takes is a scratch in the surface to reveal a surprise in this teeming, smoggy, and chaotic metropolis. The chatter of a myriad of other voices is startling in its defiance of the party line and threatens to drown out the government message of strict Islamic piety and distrust of the West.

We got BLOGS!!!!!!

Few countries are as important to the United States right now as Iran, and surely few are as little understood.

Fuck that!! It is ISRAEL'S CONCERN, not ours!! God-damn Jew press!!!!

This country of more than 71 million people boasts of its nuclear program as the crown jewel of its future energy supply, in clear defiance of US fears of nuclear weapons. Iran has also run up smack against the United States in neighboring Iraq and Afghanistan, as it strives to resurrect its ancient role as a regional power.

I'm sick of the jewshit bias, I really am!!!!

Since Islamic firebrand president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took over three years ago from a more moderate government, Iran's leaders have been more enthusiastic than ever in preaching hatred of America. Yet at the same time, and in reaction, a more reform-minded public has become contemptuous of the mullahs and clerics, bending when it has to and doing what it wants otherwise.

It seems the more strident the official drumbeat, the more it is tuned out by Tehran's young and better-educated. In downtown Tehran, images of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the revolution's founding icon, glower from prime outdoor advertising space above slogans proclaiming: "Our Unity leads to the defeat of the Superpowers." A huge mural depicts the Star-Spangled Banner with an Iranian twist; the stars are skulls, and the stripes smoking bomb trails.

But Beemers beckon from other billboards, and at Tehran's upscale Tandis Center indoor mall, Behnom said sales from his perfume business run as high as $150,000 a month. Much of the fashion focus is youth-driven. In Tehran's sprawling metropolitan area of 9 million, an estimated 60 percent of the population is younger than 25, born after the 1979 Islamic revolution.

Most of the hip establishments are in the city's north, home to the better-educated and better off. In the south, many women wear the long, enveloping black chador, and pictures of Khomeini and the current supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, dominate street murals.

Yup, those poor Muslims are the oppressive ones, yup.

I'm so sick of jew propaganda and bias passing itself off as "news."

Three year on here and I can't take it anymore. To think I once believed them!!!!

It is there and in the poorer rural areas that the message of strident anti-Americanism and religious fervor has borne the most fruit, and helped carry Ahmadinejad to the presidency. Ahmadinejad was an enthusiastic teenage member of the crowd that besieged the US Embassy 29 years ago at the start of the Islamic revolution. That movement established the clerical theocracy.

Helped the U.S. establish a fascist dictatorship!!!!

Yet beneath its veneer of Iranian normality, the southern sector also offers surprises. Artur's front is his cramped, dingy body shop, one of four on a weed-infested lot, where the clang of hammers pounding sheet metal makes a hushed conversation nearly impossible even when the topic is best discussed sotto voce.

"Forty-five dollars each," said the thin 50-year-old, who did not want to give his last name. He furtively pulls a bottle of Ukrainian vodka and two bottles of whisky from a blue plastic bag, before plunging them back in and hastily inserting a headlight unit on the car he's working on.

And in a country flush with oil but low on refining capacity, there is a thriving illegal market for gas. "I do it when I need some extra cash," explains Farouz, a 25-year-old mathematics student, who also asked to be identified only by his first name because what he does is illegal. "I always have my customers, and what I have goes very quickly."

U.S. Missile Strike in Pakistan as Paki Army Continues Assault

"Pakistan suspends operations against militants; Halts fighting for Ramadan" by Augustine Anthony, Reuters | August 31, 2008

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Pakistan yesterday announced a suspension of military operations against Islamist militants for the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, after a 24-hour assault in which it said nearly 40 militants were killed.

The military used jet fighters and helicopter gunships to attack militant positions in the Matta area Friday, with the assault continuing into yesterday. The military is also battling militants in the Bajaur area on the Afghan border, across mountains to the west of Swat, and in the South Waziristan region.

In a separate strike yesterday, a missile hit a house in Wana, the main town in South Waziristan, killing five people, said a resident who saw the bodies taken out of the rubble. The house was owned by a man believed to have militant links, residents said. A security official said two of the dead were foreigners.

It was not immediately clear who fired the missile, but US-operated pilotless drones have attacked in Pakistani border regions several times this year, killing dozens of militants.


Frowning Frenchies

"In France, pessimism clouds a time of renewal" by New York Times News Service | August 31, 2008

PARIS - This year, the public mood remains sour, with optimism hard to find and open worries about inflation, purchasing power, and the position of France in what seems a suddenly less stable world.

Jean-Christophe Fromantin, the mayor of Neuilly-sur-Seine, just outside Paris, said the anxiety is personal, but "it's also about the future of France in a world of globalization."

Translation: The public is -- as has always been the case -- opposed to global government and tyranny. That's true in France as well as Thailand or anywhere else!!!


Russia Rejects Refugees

The Zionist-controlled AmeriKan MSM coverage of this issue is also another reason not to fork over another quarter for the scitte sheet!

The one-sided bias and outright lies they have told are enough!!!

"Warnings by Russian forces blocking Georgians' return; Refugees are told safety not assured" by Jim Heintz, Associated Press | August 31, 2008

TBILISI, Georgia - Russian troops remaining in Georgian territory are effectively preventing Georgians from returning to their homes, a UN representative said yesterday.

Melita Sunjic, spokeswoman for the UN High Commissioner of Refugees in Georgia, said that although it was not clear whether Russian soldiers were actually preventing refugees from returning, the warnings by the troops effectively block them.

"If they say, 'We can't guarantee your safety,' you don't go," she said.

Some 2,000 refugees are at UNHCR camps in Gori, and possibly thousands of others are in the region, hoping to return to villages that are in the "security zones" that Russia has claimed for itself on Georgian territory.

The zones are near the border with separatist South Ossetia, the disputed province at the heart of the conflict that has ruined Georgia-Russia ties and caused the biggest crisis in Moscow's relations with the West since the 1991 Soviet collapse.

Fighting broke out Aug. 7 after Georgian forces launched a barrage on the South Ossetian capital of Tskhinvali, hoping to retake control of the province. Russian forces pushed the Georgians out in a matter of days and then drove deep into Georgia proper.

Yeah, somehow the Zionist MSM doesn't want to make an issue of the fact that GEORGIA STARTED THIS WHOLE THING under orders from USrael!!!

And the shit Jew press keeps hollering Russian invasion and aggression!!!!

Yesterday, Bob Corker, Republican of Tennessee and a member of the Senate's Foreign Relations Committee, visited Gori to observe the distribution of US food aid.

The United States has sent substantial aid to Georgia, using naval ships and military aircraft. Russian officials raised speculation that the military involvement could indicate the United States was seeking to restore Georgia's armed forces, which had received massive military aid from Washington in recent years.

Asked whether the United States was considering new military aid, Corker said "these subjects are part of a longer and midterm discussion" when Congress reconvenes in September. Under an EU-brokered cease-fire, both sides were to return their forces to prewar positions, but Russia has interpreted one of the agreement's clauses as allowing it to set up 4-mile deep security zones, which are now marked by Russian checkpoints.

Refugees coming into Georgia from those zones say they are being terrorized, beaten, and robbed by South Ossetians.

Nothing about Georgia's war crimes, though -- and I tend to doubt the accusations against the Ossetians. That's what happens when your jewspapers lie about everything!

Russia condemned the [Georgian] diplomatic cutoff, which will require Georgia and Russia to negotiate through third countries if they hold talks at all. It makes for a sticky situation because Russia sees Western nations as biased in Georgia's favor. Georgia, which had pushed for a greater role for international organizations, could see it as advantage.


Russia has faced isolation over its offensive in Georgia and its recognition of South Ossetia and another separatist region, Abkhazia. No other country has followed suit and recognized the regions' independence. The United States and Europe have condemned Russia's actions but are hard pressed to find an effective response.

With European Union leaders set to huddle tomorrow on how to deal with an increasingly assertive Russia, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has angrily warned Europe not to do America's bidding and has said that Moscow does not fear Western sanctions. An aide to President Nicolas Sarkozy said France does not foresee imposing such trade or diplomatic restrictions at the summit.

Translation: Europe doesn't want to freeze this winter.


Gazans Escape Into Egypt

Also see: "TERRORISTS" Defy Blockade

"More than 2,500 leave Gaza as Egypt opens border" by Reuters | August 31, 2008

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Egypt opened its border crossing with the Gaza Strip yesterday, allowing more than 2,500 people to leave the Hamas-controlled territory and about 1,000 to enter, Palestinian officials said.

Egyptian security and border sources said the Rafah crossing would open for two days to allow Gazans with foreign residence permits and humanitarian cases to cross into Egypt.

Hamas wants Egypt to open Rafah permanently to ease the Israel-led blockade on Gaza, but under a US-brokered accord it cannot do so without the consent of Israel and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, whose Fatah movement is Hamas's rival.

Representatives of the rival Palestinian factions have been meeting in Cairo to seek reconciliation among themselves, but officials familiar with the talks said agreement seemed unlikely.

Ahem: "Hamas insists that Palestinian factional reconciliation is still possible"

Tension between Fatah and Hamas remains high, and thousands of government employees, medical workers and teachers affiliated with Fatah went on strike in the Gaza Strip yesterday over what they said was their poor treatment by Hamas.

Hamas threatened to penalize Gazans for not reporting to work and to strip doctors of their private practices if they did not show up at public hospitals.


Nothing about the daily indignities of Palestinians living under Israeli occupation though, huh, MSM?

Lebanese Love U.N.

Probably because they are preventing another Israeli assault and invasion!!!!

Nothing about the daily Israeli violations of the no-fly zone, and a p.r. piece for UN troops in the Middle East.

This is globalist agenda-pushing at its best (worst).

"UN mission in Lebanon brings inner peace; Troops use culture to combat trauma" by Borzou Daragahi, Los Angeles Times | August 31, 2008

EBEL AL-SAQI, Lebanon - The yoga instructor chuckles, and the three-dozen or so women follow along, giggling nervously before bursting through some invisible layer of restraint or sorrow and laughing with abandon. Grins widen into smiles, tentative squeals bloom into full-bore howls.

The yoga instructor is teaching inner peace, but he's also trying to keep the peace: He's Warrant Officer Mal Singh of the Indian Army, part of a 30-year-old United Nations force stationed in Southern Lebanon. The laughs die out, some of the women wiping tears from their eyes as they gather up their handbags and head home.

"If we feel peace inside ourselves, maybe we will have peace," says Hoda Munzer, a 35-year-old owner of a nearby clothing shop, who has taken a break from work to attend the class with her 9-year-old daughter, Sueen, in this hilltop community near the Israeli border.

For decades, southern Lebanon has been shaken by war, most recently in 2006, when fighting between Israel and the militant group Hezbollah displaced 1 million people and wrecked dozens of towns and villages. The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon, or UNIFIL, is perhaps not aptly named: It has been here since March 23, 1978, its numbers bolstered to about 13,000 after the 2006 conflict.

Yup, the shit jewsmedia of the U.S. can't even say ISRAEL INVADED!!!!

I am SO SICK of the fucking JEW BIAS of the AmeriKan MSM and HERE I GO AGAIN!!!! ANGER!!!!!

While serving here, the blue-bereted troops also try to heal the psychic wounds of traumatized residents, serving as cultural ambassadors of sorts. In addition to the Indian troops' yoga instruction, French troops have taught the many Francophone residents courses in poetry.

Chinese troops demonstrate tai chi, and the South Koreans offer tae kwon do. The Spaniards teach Español, now trendy in Lebanon. Italians have shown off their pizza-making skills. The UN peacekeepers also offer medical and dental clinics and computer classes, and they have plans to supply more artificial limbs for people wounded by old land mines and other ordnance.

Yeah, left there by ISRAEL!!!

See: Israel and the Bomblets

The efforts are all meant to endear the troops to a local population that has violently resisted incursions by Israeli, French, American, and Syrian forces over the decades.

This kind of shit bias towards the west and Zionists is really steaming me. Better get through this article quick!!!

"When we do such things, it brings us closer to the people," said Major Rishi Raj Singh of the 850-strong Indian battalion stationed here. "The return is immeasurable. We don't spend a lot of money, and it's immensely popular."

It's part of the changing nature of UN peacekeeping operations since they began 60 years ago on May 29, 1948, when the fledgling world body dispatched its first batch of blue-helmeted international troops to maintain a truce between the newly founded state of Israel and its Arab neighbors.

"The warfare environment is much more complex than before," says Major Chang Sec-jeun of the South Korean force based near the Shi'ite town of Burj Rahhal. "You have to consider not just military dimensions, but nonprofit organizations, economics, and civilian life. We keep the peace with the local population. We keep the peace together."

The South Koreans teach tae kwon do in workshops that attract up to 50 young students, many of them on edge over Lebanon's simmering conflicts. "The tae kwon do helps release their frustration and stress and give them . . . what do you call it? Catharsis?" Chang said.

The troops have set up tae kwon do studios in three Southern Lebanese towns. They hope to have two more by the end of summer, eventually offering 10 classes a week for up to 500 people. The students, ages 11 to 13, line up in formation at the beginning of each class.

"We learn to concentrate and control ourselves," says Abbas Hammoud, a 13-year-old who, like many children, suffered nightmares after the 2006 war. "And to defend ourselves."

Tae kwon do classes not only build character, but also create good will among a key population group, Chang says. "It's not just physical training," he says. "It's also mental and spiritual."

Yoga, tae kwon do, and pizza are temporary salves, but for at least an hour a week, the women concentrate on personal serenity, not the ever-present possibility of war.

"Yes, there have been many wars, but everybody here loves life," says Amal Ashqar, a 32-year-old with dark brown hair to her shoulders.

"Yoga teaches us about flexibility and friendship. We think about the way we breathe and the way we stand. It gives us peace."

Yeah, the U.N. brings peace, right!

What is sad is when I was a full-blown lefty, I actually believed in that piece of shit globalist organization.

After finding out they run sex rings and poison people with their vaccines as well as their plans for global government, they can forget it now!

Mexicans Protest CIA Drug Running Operation

Because we know whom the biggest drug dealer in the world is, readers!!!!

"Mexico's drug battles alter a way of life; Violence leaves many in fear" by Marc Lacey, New York Times News Service | August 31, 2008

TIJUANA, Mexico - With a bingo hall, a dog track, and a vast room of slot machines, Casino Caliente has a fair share of shrieks and groans any night of the year. But when a team of heavily armed men dressed in black barged in and ordered everyone to the floor on a Friday night this month, the outbursts rose to an entirely different level.

It turned out, no shots were fired that night. The armed men proved to be federal police officers, and they quickly left with two men suspected of being traffickers in tow.

Gone are the days when Mexico's drug war was an abstraction for most people, something they lamented over the morning papers as if it were unfolding far away. Reminders are everywhere, from the radios blasting drug ballads that romanticize the criminals to the giant banners that drug cartels hang from overpasses to recruit killers and threaten rivals.

The Mexican-based traffickers that ship narcotics from South America to the United States are in a pitched battle with President Felipe Calderón's government, which has sent the army to trouble spots around the country to shut them down. Police agencies, infiltrated by the drug traffickers and lacking training, have not shown themselves to be up to the job.

Tens of thousands of Mexicans marched in Mexico City last night to protest against the wave of kidnappings and murders linked to the cartels, pressing Calderón to meet his promises to crack down on crime.

Holding candles and dressed in white, demonstrators on the capital's Paseo de la Reforma main street carried posters and pictures of kidnap victims and signs saying, "Enough Is Enough." Officials estimated the crowd at 50,000 shortly after the march began, but thousands continued to pour into the streets.

Thousands of Mexicans protested yesterday around the Independence monument in Mexico City, against the tide of killings, kidnappings, and shootouts sweeping the country.

Thousands more attended demonstrations in other cities across the country last night. A similar mass protest four years ago drew a quarter of a million people.

In all, 2,682 people have been killed in the drug war this year, including elderly bystanders, schoolchildren, and pregnant women, according to a tally by a newspaper, El Universal. The wealthy bulletproof their vehicles, wear protective clothing, and move around with burly men wearing earpieces. But others with fewer resources resort to their makeshift measures to stay alive.


As usual, the rich elite are insulated from whatever mayhem they are responsible for or profiting from.

Why are These People Protesting?

Sure is a lot of people, huh?

China's Silent Earthquakes

Please, tell me, readers, WHY were these incidents NOT REPORTED in the newspapers of AmeriKa?

"The quake was the latest of several to hit China, including Sichuan and Yunnan provinces. On Friday, a magnitude 5 quake struck Tibet near the border with Nepal.... On Aug. 25... an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.7 hit the Zhongba region in southern Tibet."

If they had been, I would have posted them!!!!

"Quake in China kills at least 22; New blow to area devastated in May" by Associated Press | August 31, 2008

BEIJING - A magnitude 6.1 earthquake hit southwest China's Sichuan and Yunnan provinces yesterday, killing at least 22 people and injuring about 135, state media reported. Nearly 1,000 houses in rural villages were destroyed.

On May 12, a 7.9 magnitude earthquake in northern Sichuan killed nearly 70,000 people and left 5 million homeless. The region has been hit by scores of aftershocks, keeping people there on edge. The official Xinhua News Agency said yesterday's quake killed 17 people in Sichuan and five in the neighboring province of Yunnan. About 100 people in Sichuan and 35 in Yunnan were injured.

Anybody hear a HAARP?

The earthquake hit 31 miles southeast of Panzhihua city in the southwestern corner of Sichuan at 4:30 p.m. The epicenter was near Sichuan's border with Yunnan. Xinhua said the quake measured 6.1 on the Richter scale. Several people were buried in the ruins of their collapsed houses, officials said.

"A large number of houses have collapsed," Qi Kaihong, deputy chief of the Huili county publicity department, told Chinese state television. More than 400 other houses were seriously damaged.

Residents of Kunming, Yunnan's capital, felt a strong shock from the earthquake, with many running into the streets despite falling rain, the China News Service said. Telecommunications were temporarily cut but then restored, it said. A duty officer at the State Seismology Bureau said the quake occurred in a mountainous area. Poor communications hindered efforts to make a complete casualty count, Xinhua said.

The quake was the latest of several to hit China, including Sichuan and Yunnan provinces. On Friday, a magnitude 5 quake struck Tibet near the border with Nepal, close to an area hit earlier in the week by a stronger quake that damaged hundreds of homes.

That quake hit at 5:43 p.m., with its epicenter about 240 miles northwest of Nepal's capital, Katmandu, according to the US Geological Survey. The thinly populated mountainous region is about 2,000 miles west of Beijing.

On Aug. 25, the Geological Survey reported that an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.7 hit the Zhongba region in southern Tibet. The Xinhua news agency said that schools, a hydropower station, and 622 homes were damaged and that 2,000 people were forced to seek temporary shelter. No deaths or injuries were reported. Truckloads of materials and relief funds were sent to the area.

As rebuilding efforts continue in Sichuan Province, the Chinese government announced last week that 88 children who were orphaned after the May earthquake have been made eligible for adoption. Authorities began processing registrations last week. There were 532 children left unaccompanied after the quake, according to an official count, official China News Service said.

The eligible orphans are 14 or younger, and some suffer from physical or other disabilities, the report said. It did not say whether the disabilities resulted from the quake. China News Service said the children were deemed eligible for expedited adoption because both of their parents are known to have died and because they have expressed a wish to be adopted.

Other children whose parents are missing must wait a period of two years for the parents to be declared dead before they can be adopted, it said. The Civil Affairs Ministry said earlier this year that people nationwide had shown a huge interest in adopting quake orphans, with 10,000 families registering for adoption in one province alone. An official indicated the ministry could give priority to parents who lost children in the quake.

Adoption applications are not open to foreigners, including residents of the Chinese territories of Hong Kong and Macau, and Taiwanese citizens, officials said."

"Besieged Thai leader insists he will not quit; Protesters occupy facility for 5th day" by Reuters | August 31, 2008

BANGKOK - Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej vowed yesterday not to quit in the face of intensifying protests aimed at toppling his 7-month-old government.

Speaking to thousands of supporters at an official event, Samak said he had requested an audience with King Bhumibol Adulyadej to brief him on the political situation, as protesters occupied Government House for a fifth day. The crowd at the government compound reached about 10,000 yesterday.

Samak also called an emergency session of parliament today so lawmakers can discuss ways to resolve the crisis. The prime minister said he had been constitutionally elected in December and would never bow to the demands of the protesters, who are adamant they will remain camped out inside the prime minister's official compound until his government falls.

"For parents of college freshmen, first test is on economics of travel; Costs put the squeeze on traditional send-off" by Tracy Jan, Globe Staff | August 31, 2008

Still struggling to recover from tuition sticker shock, parents of college freshmen are now confronting a new economic hurdle: the rising costs of moving their children to campus.

With gas, airfare, and shipping prices soaring, many families are resorting to creative twists on the age-old tradition of the college send-off.

So now even that allegedly exciting and fun time of life is comprised -- while war looters are doing just fine!!!!

Where are those war looter exposes of corruption in my Sunday shitter, anyway?

Some are vacuum-packing clothing and bedding to conserve precious luggage space - and avoid airline fees. Others are imposing strict limits on how much - and what items - their children can pack. Others have redeemed frequent flyer miles or driven long distances to airports served by discount carriers.

Their cost-saving efforts were tested at the airport, though. One of the suitcases weighed 51 pounds, one pound over the limit. Hunt had to pay a $29 fee.

I'm sure that helped the kid and his parents out.

As I have said before, FUCK the AIRLINES!! Don't fly anymore, please!!!!

Because of financial concerns, Hunt said, she probably will skip parents weekend in October. And Phillip will not be coming home for Thanksgiving.

Yeah, that's great for our FAMILY-ORIENTED SOCIETY!!!

How much longer you gonna eat shit, Americans?

Think you are going to stand up to a draft?

Gas prices have risen by more than a third compared with a year ago. Airfare to Boston is up more than 20 percent, plus new fees to check luggage and for overweight bags. Shipping costs, too, have increased, with fuel surcharges doubling in that period.

Colleges are also adjusting to the new economic reality. Tonight, Tufts will bus freshmen to Target for an after-hours shopping field trip, according to the orientation schedule. Tomorrow, the university will hold its annual swap meet when students can pick up furniture and other donated goods on the cheap.

The only folks who don' have to worry about $$$: the WAR PROFITEERS, BANKS, and ISRAEL!!!!

Try as they might, some parents have just resigned themselves to the higher costs of moving these days.

Good practice for the upcoming draft of your children, folks!!

I know the terms are politically-correct, but you know what?



"For Riley and many of the 910 other mentally retarded adults for whom the trust funds were created a generation ago, little of the estimated $30 million in the accounts is ever spent on their behalf. Instead, the money has been siphoned off for bank management charges and legal bills. And for fees charged by the Massachusetts Probate and Family Court system, which has long neglected its obligation to ensure the funds are expended for the benefit of some of the state's most helpless citizens."

"Al-CIA-Duh" Attacks Russia in Chechnya

The skulduggery and dastardly deeds of the western war-makers continue!

"At least two Russian soldiers killed in Chechnya

MOSCOW, August 30 (RIA Novosti) - At least two Russian soldiers were killed in explosions in Russia's North Caucasus republic of Chechnya, including a suicide attack on an Interior Ministry base, prosecutors said on Saturday.

One soldier died and nine others, including one civilian, were wounded when two suicide bombers drove through the perimeter fence of the Vedeno military base, south of the capital Grozny, in a jeep packed with explosives at 6.30 p.m. on Friday.

Both terrorists died at the scene, a spokesman for the local investigative committee said, adding that a criminal case had been launched into the terror attack.

In a separate incident, a second Russian soldier died and another was injured when a remote-controlled explosive device went off in the village of Serzhen-Yurt, between Vedeno and Grozny, on the same day.

Attacks on police, troops, officials, and clashes with militants have remained frequent in Chechnya although major fighting with separatists officially ended in 2001, and substantial efforts have been made to revive the troubled republic.


The Last Day I Buy the Boston Globe

This is the same thing the New York Times did, and I will never purchase them again.

"The newsstand price of the daily Globe outside of Greater Boston will increase to $1. The increase is the result of rising operations costs, including newsprint, labor, and materials."

A 33% increase for a scitte sheet of lies?

They want me to pick up the tab for their failings due to the incessant lies and agenda-pushing garbage?!!

And what is truly sad, they actually have a few worthy (in their own slanted, biased way of presentation) articles. I'll be picking and posting today, readers, but this may be the last day. I've noticed when I don't purchase a newspaper, I'm less likely to go to the website, read the articles, or post from AmeriKan MSM. Used to have tons of articles up here directing to NYT and BG, but with the budget-saving measure to be imposed by me tomorrow, I expect even less from them now.

The relationship is finally over, readers, and truthfully, reading the AmeriKan MSM hasn't been a good experience.
The raging soliloquys are testament to that.

Palin Family Picture Proves Pregnancy


"Sarah Palin Is NOT The Mother [Photos+Video]

by ArcXIXSat Aug 30, 2008

Yesterday, with the news of Sarah Louise Heath Palin inexplicably being chosen as a Vice-Presidential nominee, the attentive American public was also introduced to her character. Unfortunately for all of us, it was filled with multiple instances of backtracking and outright lies. While Alaskans had been giving her an 80% approval rating, recently 87% of Alaskans polled on the subject of TrooperGate believed she was lying.

Now, I've known liars in my life. Their single core problem is not with themselves, but those around them. If they're never called out on their twisting of truths and fabrications, they simply continue to make larger lies.

Well, Sarah, I'm calling you a liar. And not even a good one. Trig Paxson Van Palin is not your son. He is your grandson. The sooner you come forward with this revelation to the public, the better.....

The following photograph was printed in the Anchorage Daily News, on March 9th:


Bristol is pregnant in these pictures. She is not carrying belly fat, which grows outwardly wide, and does not become dome-shaped. That's because fat is generally evenly distributed around the abdomen and a fetus is not. Bristol's chest is sticking out, a normal body reaction when sucking in stomach muscles.

Yesterday, the State of Alaska has also moved Sarah's photo page three different times from



... With losses of photos from January & April.

The final point of interest is....


Now, I'm not trying to tear people down here, folks.


If you LIE about SMALL THINGS you will LIE about LARGE (9/11, Iraq) THINGS!

This goes for these pathetic politicians as well as the now-hated AmeriKan newsmedia!


And as a person who LOVES LIFE and DOESN'T REALLY CARE who the mommy is (but who does care about the LYING), here is more:

"In looking over pics, to find one of Sarah Palin with the baby, I noticed that most of the pictures of the McCain-Palin public announcement of the Republican ticket had Bristol in the background lovingly holding the baby. My thought at that point, and there was no reason to then blog it, was that Bristol wanted a baby real bad. She just had that look of care about the baby....

Bristol, it is real sad the way all this is coming out about your baby. But you should be proud of him. I can tell you really care. He is one lucky boy


I looked at those photos and the blogger is correct -- and I will NEVER, EVER criticize a MOTHER'S OBVIOUS LOVE no matter what her age!!!!

That is why the LIFE-AFFIRMING tag was added upon update!!!!
