"This article is not intended to give into conspiracy theories that can be used as cannon fodder by Zionists, citing it as anti-semitic, it is merly a to get people talking and to ponder who is really running mainstream media and what is the driving force behind them..... is it their job to inform us or are they just a mouth piece for Government and Corporate Whores?

"Sibel Edmonds—Nothing has changed. As far as the Congress is concerned, the Democrats have been the majority since November 2006 and I have had zero interest from Congress on having hearings—any hearings—on this issue, whether it’s the states secrets privilege portion of it or the involved corruption cases. The current majority has been at least as bad as the previous one. At least the Republicans were gutsy enough to come and say, We’re not going to touch this. But the new majority is not saying anything!
The Obama Administration is pretty new. For what I see, they are continuing the previous administration’s state secrets privilege policies. As far as the whistleblower protection and related legislations are concerned, the new White House has already made it clear that they do not want to provide any protection for national security whistleblowers—these are the whistleblowers from the FBI, CIA, and all the other intelligence and law enforcement agencies and, of course, the Defense Department.
As far as the mainstream media is concerned, at least from what I have seen, the situation has actually gotten worse. To me that seems to be the major reason behind the Congress’ and the White House’s inaction and lack of desire to pursue accountability. As long as the pressure from the mainstream media is not there, of course they aren’t going to act. They are driven by that pressure, and the mainstream media in the U.S. today does not fulfill its role and responsibility by providing that pressure.
Of the three—Congress, the executive branch, and the media—I would say the biggest culprit here is the mainstream media.
K.M.—The most recent example of the deafening silence of the mainstream media was your deposition during the Schmidt vs. Krikorian case on Aug. 8. There, you spoke, under oath, about how the Turkish government and a network of lobby groups and high-ranking U.S. officials and Congressmen have engaged in treason and blackmail. A big story by any standards, it was only covered by Armenian newspapers and a few blogs. How do you explain this silence?
S.E.—I know field reporters who are so excited and want to chase the story. But when they went to their papers—and I’m talking about mainstream media and very good investigative journalists—their editors are refusing to touch it. When you watch the video or read the transcript, you will see how explosive the deposition was. And remember, I was speaking under oath. If by any standard, if I were to lie or be untruthful in any way, I would go to jail. I am answering these questions under oath, and yet, the mainstream media is refusing to touch it. And this is very similar to what we saw with the AIPAC/Larry Franklin case.
I have emphasized the fact that the American Turkish Council [ATC], the Turkish lobby, and these Turkish networks, they work together, in partnership with AIPAC [American Israel Public Affairs Committee] and JINSA [Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs]. So not only is there pressure on media outlets from the Turkish lobby and the corrupt U.S. persons involved, but they also have this pressure placed on the media via their partners from the Israel lobby—and the latter’s influence on the mainstream media in the U.S. is undeniable.
The irony is that my deposition has made it to the front page of Turkish newspapers—and Turkey doesn’t even pride itself with freedom of the media—yet the mainstream media has not written a single word about it...."Source: Exclusive Interview with FBI Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds
"Government health officials are mobilizing to launch a massive swine flu vaccination campaign this fall that is unprecedented in its scope....
"This is potentially the largest mass-vaccination program in human history," said Howard Markel, a professor of medical history at the University of Michigan who is advising the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as it spearheads the effort....
"There's little doubt we're going to vaccinate people," said Anthony S. Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who is leading the government's testing of the vaccine. "Who and when and exactly how -- we have to figure out."
"This is an overreaction," said Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center, which opposes many vaccine policies. "There is no national security threat here. Why are we operating like this? This is not polio. This is not smallpox."
"I'm very concerned about the dangers of vaccines," said Janice Smith, 58, of Misawaka, Ind., who attended a public hearing Aug. 15, one of a series of meetings the CDC has sponsored to gauge public sentiment about the vaccine.
Fears and misinformation about the vaccine are circulating, including inaccurate claims that it will be mandatory. Authorities are adamant that vaccination will be voluntary...."
WND is the same quack outfit that was behind Israeli agent Orly Taitz uproar about having a Obama Kenyan birth certificate. Now they're pushing lies from a dead man--Bin Laden--that he will soon have a 'nuke.'
If anything goes BOOM here in the States, it will be another Israeli designed 'false-flag' to get Americans fighting mad to attack Iran and nuke Pakistan...."

"Sometimes the message is great, no matter what you think of the messenger.
Larry Flynt - yes, that Larry Flynt - wrote today on Huffington Post:
The American government -- which we once called our government -- has been taken over by Wall Street, the mega-corporations and the super-rich ... Both Democrats and Republicans dance to the tune of their corporate masters. In America, corporations do not control the government. In America, corporations are the government.
This was never more obvious than with the Wall Street bailout, whereby the very corporations that caused the collapse of our economy were rewarded with taxpayer dollars. So arrogant, so smug were they that, without a moment's hesitation, they took our money -- yours and mine -- to pay their executives multimillion-dollar bonuses, something they continue doing to this very day. They have no shame. They don't care what you and I think about them. Henry Kissinger refers to us as "useless eaters"....
"Connect the dots ~ Cheney did indeed have his CIA assassination group but it was outsourced, much like torture was outsourced to foreign countries, to Blackwater mercenaries and Pat Tillman was most likely a target during the 2004 election year for he was about to support John Kerry:
In my column on April 1, 2009 DID CHENEY ASSASSINATION RING TARGET PAT TILLMAN ? I wrote of the Seymour Hersh's revelation of an executive assassination ring that reported directly to Dick Cheney and now confirmed by former Cheney aide John Hannah. I also wrote that it's time to re-open the investigation of Pat Tillman's questionable death by friendly fire which was stonewalled by both the Bush administration and the Pentagon generals....
Connect the dots ~ a paranoid Dick Cheney, who is already outsourcing torture, enlists the CIA to hire Blackwater to assassinate specific targets. In early 2004 Cheney hears that Tillman is about to go public with his Iraq war misgivings and his support for John Kerry. Can't you picture Cheney confiding to Blackwater mafia boss Erick Prince " We have a problem with Tillman and it's an election year " and Prince replying " Worry no more, Chief ~ we'll handle it "
"[Mr. McGovern is another "former" CIA spook (Like bin Laden's press agent Michael Scheuer)writing for Antiwar.com, whose only purpose appears to be defending truth and the Constitution against an out-of-control government. This is pure disinformation, intended to mislead us, the enraged masses, into going after the agency's crimes individually (Blackwater, torture, drone murders, etc.), when what is needed is a complete house cleaning of the entire repellent mess that resides at Langley, Virginia. The CIA is a criminal institution that hires other criminals throughout the world to start wars, commit mass-murder, kidnap, torture, run drugs, et. al., in a worldwide and national psyop. The CIA is at war with all humanity and humankind's only option is the complete and utter eradication of that cancer on the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America.]
