Reporters Without Borders Funded by Republican Party
British press baron Lord Northcliff said, "News is something that someone, somewhere wants to keep secret, everything else is advertising." If this is true, then U.S. government funding of Reporters Without Borders must be news, because the organization and its friends in Washington have gone to extraordinary lengths to cover it up. In spite of 14 months of stonewalling by the National Endowment for Democracy over a Freedom of Information Act request and a flat denial from RSF executive director Lucie Morillon, the NED has revealed that Reporters Without Borders received grants over at least three years from the International Republican Institute.

Israel, Not Hizbullah, is Putting Civilians in Danger on Both Sides of the Border
So if Israeli officials have been deceiving us about what has been occurring inside Lebanon, have they also been misleading us about Hizbullah's rocket attacks on Israel? Should we take at face value government and army statements that Hizbullah's strikes into Israel are targeting civilians indiscriminately, or do they need more serious investigation?

ThinkProgress Disses "9/11 Conspiracy Theorists" RE: Qana
very disappointing for ThinkProgress to lump us in with - of all people - Michelle Malkin ....

"9/11 conspiracy theorists: there is no evidence to support [their] claims."

Rather interesting that TP's being so pro-active, out of the blue, about bashing 9/11 "theorists" with circuituous claims and parallels to Malkin when she's so eminently bashable all by herself (needs no help).

The Qana Massacre And The Risks Of Relying On Israeli Propaganda
This article discusses an example of American mainstream media bias towards Israel that occurred during a discussion of the Qana massacre on CNN's Paula Zahn program, and how she got burned when the Israeli Defense Force retracted its statement that Hezbollah had fired Katyusha from an area near the bombed apartment building, in spite of the fact that a day earlier it had disseminated a surveillance video that purported to show a Hezbollah battery firing rockets from this Qana neighborhood on the day the building was bombed.

Factored-in
The middle of the twentieth century was the last occasion a belligerent nation stunned the world with violent military invasions. The major powers watched passively while a rogue military nation boldly occupied a number of sovereign states; the excuses offered by the aggressor at that time were similar to the inane, irrational rubbish the world is offered today by Israel and the U.S. However, some would make the distinction that the comments made by John Bolton and Condoleezza Rice are even less believable than the propaganda of Dr. Joseph Goebbels.

The seismic readings of explosions happened before 9-11 planes hit WTCs
The official 9/11 Commission Report (your tax dollars wasted) states the following:

8:46:40 a.m.: Impact time, WTC1
9:03:11 a.m.: Impact time, WTC2

.......HOWEVER, official data give seismic events of:

8:46:26 a.m.: 0.9 Richter, signal duration 12 seconds [reported as first impact, WTC1]
9:02:54 a.m.: 0.7 Richter, signal duration 6 seconds [reported as second impact, WTC2]

Conclusion: Two notable seismic events occurred before the planes ever hit,...were so close timewise to the actual impacts of the planes that Lamont-Doherty falsely reported them as the impacts. Instead, they corroborate evidence of pre-demolition explosions in the basements, as multiple eyewitnesses reported and which MSNBC and CNN, even though both aware of this, refused to cover the story.

The logical conclusion--which coincides with AT LEAST FOUR willing EYEWITNESSES to pre-explosions in the basements in the testimony of William Rodriquez, Mike Pecoraro, Phillip Morelli, and Jose Sanchez (and up to 14 other known eyewitnesses yet to make public statements)--is that the pre-explosives detonated before aircraft even hit, later falsely blamed on the aircraft--though the latter is a poor and transparent alibi when times noted, even poorer alibi combined with many eyewitnesses to pre-demolition basement explosions, long before the towers were demolished.

A Cry From Beirut
As missles fly and bombs fall in the middle east, much of the mass media coverage centers around the impact on israel with the plight of the Lebananese people taking a back seat. Despite the propaganda being spread, it is not Hezbollah being punished be israel's missles; it is the children, the tourists, the workers, and their families. Below is a recent email that I received after inquiring about a friend's family. A wife and children had been visiting relatives in Beirut and have since been held captive by israel's bombardment of the country. Our country has thus-far failed to help them. The U.S. response: go home, stay put, pray for a phone call.

The letter below is included unedited to convey the dismay of the writer. The writer's name has been removed for safety reasons.

Pakistan ISI + US Intel Ties to Mumbai 7/11
On July 11, eight bombs exploded aboard commuter trains in Mumbai, killing 190 people. No group has come forward claiming responsibility. But according to mainstream coverage, such as July 12th's report in the San Francisco Chronicle by Anna Badkhen, the prime suspects are "militant Islamic groups with ties to Pakistan."

What the mainstream press fails to report is the direct connection between the terrorist groups they name, and Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) -- a virtual branch of the American CIA. This in turn leads back to the same (alleged "al-Qaeda") apparatus also responsible for the Bush administration's 9/11 and other post-9/11 terror events.

Semiotic Sequences and Cultural Appropriation
I have recently discovered that donning a cleaner's garb or waiter's apron is a passport to a wealth of knowledge. A very rich harvest of information is available to every non-descript person in a service industry. A typical but dated example (I do not wish to compromise my current activities) would be an overheard conversation between two bankers regarding the then new strategy of reducing (their) costs while simultaneously narrowing the options/freedoms of the population. The banks and other large financial institutions decided that it was far more expedient and profitable to run their businesses utilising a strategy of perpetual debt rather than temporary debt. 'Joe and Josephine' citizen were about to become perpetual debtors or economic slaves.

Evidence of Systemic Gov't Election Racketeering Mounts in Mexico, Witness Comes Forward
IFE employee Loar Cibac Pereira Sánchez said that he was working in one of the electoral agency's regional offices (in Saltillo, Coahuila). He confirms that on Sunday night, as he was entering election results into the IFE PREP system computers, his boss, José Luis Fernández Mier, "ordered him to type in vote tallies favorable to Calderon and threatened to transfer him to a rural office if he didn't obey."

And another interesting eerie point pointing to systemic vote fraud, is that for the whole day of "prejections as the vote comes in" the other three candidates were frozen in place, despite votes presumably coming in all over the country and drastically changing the other two to flip.

and Subcomandante Marcos Speaks about Mexican Vote Fraud: Fox and the IFE Modified the PREP Results to Prepare an Electoral Fraud "We're not in the electoral vibe but for ethical and moral reasons, as Zapatistas, if we see something is wrong, well, we have to say it"..."We want to share a report that the Sixth Commission received. According to the report there has been a fraud in the elections for president of the Republic....[O]n (Sunday) afternoon between 5:30 and 6 p.m. Vicente Fox called (Luis Carlos) Ugalde, the IFE president, to ask him to change the entry of results of the PREP, the Preliminary Election Results Program, in such a way so that the first results entered came from the polling places that benefited Felipe Calderón and, that later they would create other votes for him."

World Media Gets Order to Make Mexican Vote Fraud Disappear Down the Memory Hole
stolen, dumped, tampered, missing millions of uncounted ballots still going on We may see the first day of the real Mexican Revolution in 24 hours.

World Press Covers Up Huge Vote Fraud in Mexican Elections, Obregon rally for Saturday in the Zocalo --- You got to read these articles to believe it, every point they make has been demolished one day before. And even the world press is unable to get their "official" story staight! There are FOUR OR MORE SEPARATE VERSIONS OF OFFICIAL REALITY being spun that I have found in just a short cursory search. So which is it? Don't conspirators at least know you are supposed to get your official story straight before lying to the world?

All of them are wrong. All contradict the previous coverage on vote fraud, missing ballots in the millions, found Tuesday, ballot boxes from "missing pro-Obrador precints" found dumped uncounted in city trash, and outright open lies from the "counting agency" themselves attempting to blame military for missing ballots, when the military said "er, no you guys have all access to the ballots, the fraud, lost ballots, and stolen ballots are is your fault"

Mex Fed Elections commission (IFE) was caught lying about "98.5% counted"--when they discovered several million more uncounted, making their projections only from around 92%, though that's not the spin du jour.

Suddenly, about 30 minutes ago that story went to the trash. That stopped existing in the magical fantasy world of print prostitution, oh excuse me, commericial journalism. And now various spiels are being spun, and how hard they do spin...some links to compare for you.

It seems that if Bush-linked international fascists want to steal another North American election they are in for a fight.
