Israel, United States say Iran an Imminent threat

If you're reading this on the Internet, the FBI may be spying on you at this very moment.
Under provisions of the USA Patriot Act, the Department of Justice has been collecting e-mail and IP (a computer's unique numeric identifier) addresses, without a warrant, using trap-and-trace surveillance devices ("pen-traps").
Now, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Justice's principal investigative arm, may be monitoring the web-surfacing habits of Internet users – also without a search warrant – that is, spying on you with no probable cause whatsoever.
In the wake of September 11, 2001, with the announcement of a potentially never-ending "war on terror" and in the name of "national security," the Bush administration embarked on a global campaign that left in its wake two war-ravaged states (with up to one hundred thousand civilian dead in just one of them); an offshore "archipelago of injustice" replete with "ghost jails" and a seemingly endless series of cases of torture, abuse, and the cold-blooded murder of prisoners.
AP: An American envoy repeated US allegations Monday about an Iranian nuclear weapons program and said Israel might attack Iran's nuclear sites because the Jewish state has "a history" of such actions.John Bolton, the State Department's top international security official, was referring to Israel's 1981 bombing raid on Iraq's Osirak nuclear reactor.
"The vice president said we're very concerned that this might happen," Bolton said, referring to a recent statement by US Vice President Dick Cheney."Israel destroyed the Osirak reactor in Iraq. They have a history of this," Bolton said.Earlier this month, Cheney said it was possible Israel might attack Iran if it became convinced Tehran posed a nuclear threat.
Albert Pike had this to say, many, many years ago:
"The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time."
"The bad news is that the Iraqi people have gained the ability to shoot down our aircraft. The US, having lost control of the use of the roads in Iraq, resorted (as they did in Veitnam) to trying to run the war from the air. The folly of that approach was demonstrated in Afghanistan when the Mujahideen learned how to kill the helicopters the Russians relied on. And now it is happening again.
That's the bad news.
There is more bad news."
Canada to counter US Patriot Act data reporting
The Canadian Government says it intends to change laws to thwart the US Patriot Act.
The changes would prevent subsidiaries of US corporations such as EDS - which manages Canadian health care records and Australian tax information - from divulging sensitive information about Canadians.
Under the terms of the US Patriot Act, US firms can be forced to hand over information contained in databases and corporate records, including data from non-US subsidiaries.
Canada, like Australia, contracts out many government services.
Canadian health care records and Australian tax records are both managed by the giant US firm EDS.
Privacy advocates fear that means the FBI can see these otherwise private records.
The Canadian Government said it will change regulations to ensure these firms do not pass their Canadian data to the FBI.
Several provinces have already announced plans to introduce similar legislation.
An American envoy repeated US allegations Monday about an Iranian nuclear weapons program and said Israel might attack Iran's nuclear sites because the Jewish state has "a history" of such actions.
John Bolton, the State Department's top international security official, was referring to Israel's 1981 bombing raid on Iraq's Osirak nuclear reactor.
"The vice president said we're very concerned that this might happen," Bolton said, referring to a recent statement by US Vice President Dick Cheney.
Earlier this month, Cheney said it was possible Israel might attack Iran if it became convinced Tehran posed a nuclear threat.
Bolton is on the final stop of a three-country Persian Gulf tour to coordinate policies in light of the perceived threat of Iran's nuclear ambitions. .
Speaking to a group of reporters during a one-day visit to Abu Dhabi, he said the United States was ready to dismantle Iran's nuclear assets and store them at the US Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee.
Bolton, on the final leg of a Gulf tour that has already taken him to Kuwait and Bahrain, repeated earlier statements by US President George W. Bush that Washington doesn't rule out its own military strikes on Iran but prefers to halt any weapons program in Tehran using diplomacy.
"We never rule any option out, but we're trying to resolve this diplomatically," he said.
“None of the waiters could even be bribed, because they all work for the respective secret services and there’s no welcoming press accreditation,” Ruyssenaars said. “On the contrary, getting too close means getting into trouble with heavily armed crooks guarding other mostly unarmed global crooks,” he said.
"MK: "I use the archetype stories of North American aboriginals and the themes or colours which appear over and over again in the oral stories handed down through generations. Black, white, red, and yellow play very heavily in aboriginal stories of creation."
Maynard now mentions the Spiral Sequence of Life, the Golden Rectangle, the Fibonacci Sequence and the Phi Ratio. For further information on these aspects of Tool's songs and ideas, there are several websites to consider for reference:
The mathmetician credited for discovering the sequence is Leonardo Fibonacci in 1202 (a.d.). Each number in the sequence is generated by adding the previous two, which produces a string of numbers like this: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987. To arrive at each number of the series, you simply add the two numbers that came before it. And so each number of the series is the sum of the two numbers preceding it. In nature, you see many patterns which displays numbers from this sequence e.g. pineapples, flowers, conk shells, pine cones (hmmm...), etc. What I get from the sequence is the relation of a ratio (Phi) which has fixed spatial constraints on biological organisms. And so you see the pattern repeat itself again and again because of these spatial constraints.
If you look at the syllable of the opening lyrics in 'Lateralus', you can see evidence of the Fibonacci sequence ascending and descending:
2 (white are)
3 (all I see)
5 (in my in-fan-cy.)
8 (red and yel-low then came to be),
5 (reach-ing out to me.)
3 (lets me see.)
The drummer of Tool, Danny Carey is very much interested in numerology, geometry, etc. His drum patterns are chosen very carefully to reflect some of the patterns he finds in the Fibonacci sequence and elsewhere. This has led me to consider to what degree there may be underlying patterns in nature, shape, and number, which resonate with us in musical notation. And that it is partially due to this pattern recognition which has had such a huge impact on Tools' fans.
The band is also very interested in what is called three-dimensional sound. For some time, Maynard and I talked about Synesthesia-the perceptual sensation produced when a stimulus experienced by one sense is experienced in another, as when the hearing of a certain sound induces the visualization of a certain colour or geometric shape. I recalled listening to 'Schism' and noting how the metre of Maynard's lyrical cadence was offset from the bass and drums in certain parts as to invoke a type of sharp-sidedness. I do not actually 'see' a geometric shape before me. But I do get a sense of what he meant. This ephemeral capacity to 'see' sound is about as close as I've gotten to a synesthetic experience. "
Some time after Lateralus was released a minor flurry of interpretive activity arose around the album. In particular, Carey told an interviewer about Keenan's remark that the time signatures of the main riff in "Lateralus" (9-8-7) also represented a step in the Fibonacci sequence (the sixteenth step, as it turns out). This led some Tool fans to suggest that the tracks on Lateralus can be listened to in spiral-like orders: 6,7,5,8,4,9,3,10,2,11,1,12,13 ("The Lateralus Prophecy") or 6,7,5,8,4,9,13,1,12,2,11,3,10 ("The Holy Gift"). Both arrangements produce different story-lines for the album.
The cover is translucent and flips open to reveal the different layers of the human body, including a spiritual layer representing vrajna, the transcendental wisdom of enlightenment or union with the divine.
The vocal on "Faaip de Oiad" is of a 1997 caller to Art Bell's radio program, who claimed to have been employed at Area 51.
From an Amazon.com review:
Amazon.comIf you do a Web search on the phrase "explosions in the sky," what you're likely to come up with are Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Vietnam, fireballs, space debris. And a band from Austin, Texas. The sophomore effort from this band of emo-style prog-rockers, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever was released on September 10, 2001--and the cover art features the prescient words, "This plane will crash tomorrow."

This site is a rabbit hole. It housed data on a programming language called LILITH - named after a high-ranking demoness in mythical lore. The stuff about Freemasonry likely did this guy in.
Based out of Austin, Texas, C0balt served as an off-the highway forum for discussion that was relatively free from trollers and spooks. It had the goods on the Skull & Bones marriage between Condi Rice and George Bush in addition to the strange case of Margie Schoedinger.
Appears to have been infiltrated by neo-nazi spammers who posted nothing but hate on the site in order to discredit it. A guy named "the Alien Spammer" would upload the creepiest pictures of aliens to the site. Stuff like this ate up bandwidth and server space. The site had the best Canadian resources on the Bilderberg meetings and Canadian politicians who frequent them.
Wake Up America
This site has had numerous disputes with its hosts over time. The best info here is the stuff on the Georgia Guidestones and a cool theory about how, when the US flips over to tyranny, the reflective stickers on the back of road signs will relay information to infantry concerning the whereabouts of suspects.
Cloak & Dagger
After c0balt.com went down, the most detailed info on how President Bush arranged for Bloom's operation to be targeted went with it. That is until it was discovered that Lenny's friend, Pam Schuffert, had preserved the file.
This site was recently shut down in the US, but is back online. The Authorities probably managed to kidnap the real guy, brainwash him with MK-ULTRA mind-control and now he is a shill for Bush. Well, maybe not.
Wow. 316 mason halls in Cuba. Wild stuff.
The Scottish Rite Journal: "The number of Cuban Masons has more than doubled since the 1980s, up to 29,000 members in more than 316 Lodges across the island. In the last two years, there has been a dramatic increase in members in Havana. Earlier this year, the Cuban government gave permission to establish two new Lodges, the first allowed since 1967.
'There's a very intimate connection between Masonry and the independence movement,' according to Ill. Elias. 'Many Cuban revolutionaries were Masons. This has influenced Cubans' image of the fraternal order. In many parks and town squares, you will find a Square and Compass, and many Lodges are prominent buildings in town.'"
In related news, a prominent historian has gone on record as stating that Freemasonry is incompatible with religion.
Incompatible With Christian Religion, Says Historian
MADRID, Spain, JAN. 30, 2005 (Zenit.org).- To understand what is happening in Europe, the phenomenon of Masonry must be taken into account, says Protestant historian César Vidal.
The director of the program "La Linterna" of the Spanish bishops' COPE radio network, Vidal has just written a book, "Los Masones: La Historia de la Sociedad Secreta Más Poderosa" (The Freemasons: History of the Most Powerful Secret Society), published by Planeta.
Among other things, the book addresses the Masonic influence in the most important events of recent Spanish history, especially since the election last March of the Spanish Socialist Labor Party (PSOE).
Vidal says that "the secularist current promoted by the government headed by José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero shares more than enough Masonry's rank anti-clericalism."
The author explains that the Freemasons have an enormous role in the European Union and, by way of example, says that "the project of the European Constitution has been driven by a Freemason," Valéry Giscard D'Estaing, "who has excluded mention of the continent's Christian roots and, in addition, has insisted on the inclusion of an article that subjects the churches of the different nations but frees 'philosophical organizations' from that obligation."
What should have been of more concern to the van Impes is the fact that Edmonton is turning into a training ground of sorts for the coming Canadian police state. We have the most over-policed city in Canada, helicopters fly overhead at night while cameras gather information on people downtown. As the province's government center, we have Federal agencies such as the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service making its home here. Furthermore, Anne McClelland, the grand Architect of many of our police state bills makes her base here.
The U of A houses the premier BSE research lab in addition to the Neuroscience unit. If the Engineering department gets its stuff together, they will soon be spinning off the implantable chips used for tracking cattle as some sort of memory-enhancing nanotechnology. Something's definitely happening in Edmonton, Alberta.
Canada's National Research Council (NRC)of Canada is similar to the NSA in that it propagates the research of advanced technologies for its use and for commercial use. The NRC "is the Government of Canada's premier organization for research and development." (Source www.nrc-cnrc.gc.ca). There are several institutes across Canada but the majority of them focus on BioTech and Information Technologies, the Universtiy of Alberta has recently been granted as the site for the National Institute of Nanotechnology (NIN). Currently the building is under construction and is deemed to be one of the most advanced nanotechnology buildings in the world. As you can see, since the NIN is operated by the NRC, any technology developed is the property of the Government of Canada.
With that being said, it is interesting to see how much Edmonton Alberta is becoming more of a intellegence/research community while attempting to distance itself from the oil industry. Although the provincial government in the past has stated that they want Edmonton to develop an alternative economy to oil it seems all levels of government are centralizing their intellegence operations from here. CSIS has heavy influences in the city of Edmonton and likly the U of A campus. However, AWGB noted that it seems to be a "police state" developing here. That is true somewhat, but I think the main reason is the governments plans on creating a new economy that can sustaint itself once peak oil arrives. Either way its interesting to see the governments rapidly attempting to create this industry; for what reason I have yet to figure out.
"NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. worker salaries are growing much more slowly than inflation, raising concerns about consumers' ability to repay loans and credit cards bills at a time when borrowing is near all-time highs."
Granted, the arguement is concerning the lack of cash flow people are experiencing in the USA. The Grand Wizard Greenspan has steadily been ratcheting up the interest rates, but Mortgage rates have been inching downward. People are assuming more debt just as the Central Bank is shrinking the money supply - the money used to repay that debt. It's almost as if the Fed is trying to force a crisis.

TEHERAN - Iran’s top national security official Hassan Rowhani has said the armed forces are fully prepared for any military attack by the United States, press reports said on Sunday.
“Our plans are ready, and although an attack is very unlikely the plans have been approved by the Supreme National Security Council and given to the military forces,” Rowhani was quoted as saying.
“We will not react to an attack with diplomacy. We are ready to cut off the aggressor’s hand,” added Rowhani, secretary of Iran’s top national security body.
His comments came against a backdrop of an escalating war of words between Iran and the United States, which has hinted at possible military action overTehran’s nuclear programme.
The United States and Israel accuse Iran of using an atomic energy programme as a cover for weapons development, a chrage the Islamic republic denies.
Since the links between Halliburton and the US Government are close, to say the least, it is interesting to note that the Firm is halting all operations in Iran. This could be strictly a business decision but it also could be a signal of something else: impending war.
But another, more arcane subject may play a role in U.S. job losses as well: currency policy. At least that's the argument made by Peter Morici, a business professor at the University of Maryland and former director of the Office of Economics at the U.S. International Trade Commission. 'Despite weakening against the euro and yen, the dollar remains overvalued against the Chinese yuan, Korean won and the Indian rupee,' Morici said in an email Friday. 'Currency manipulation by Asian central banks is stealing American growth, transferring good paying jobs from the U.S. Middle West and South to China and other Asian destinations.'
According to Morici, a government can make its exports artificially inexpensive by pegging its currency at a low rate against the dollar. China does this, Morici said, by buying up U.S. dollars with its currency, the yuan. 'China is flooding the market with yuan so it can flood the world with its exports,' he said.
The Chinese embassy in the United States did not immediately return a call seeking response.
Morici isn't alone in singling out China on the currency issue. U.S. Commerce Department Secretary Don Evans also has criticized the country for not letting market forces set currency rates."

The trends should already be apparent to anyone who reads a newspaper. Not a day goes by without another story about how we're mortgaging our future to the central banks of China and Japan. The U.S. budget deficit, approaching a half-trillion dollars, is financed by their purchase of Treasury notes. The U.S. trade deficit—much of it amassed by the purchase of Chinese-made goods—now exceeds $3 trillion. Meanwhile, China is displacing the United States all across Asia—in trade, investment, education, culture, and tourism. It's also cutting into the trade markets of Latin America. (China is now Chile's No. 1 export market and Brazil's No. 2 trade partner.) Asian engineering students who might once have gone to MIT or Cal Tech are now going to universities in Beijing.
Meanwhile, as the European Union becomes a coherent entity, the dollar's value against the euro has fallen by one-third in the past two years (one-eighth just since September). As the dollar's rate of return declines, currency investors—including those who have been financing our deficit—begin to diversify their holdings. In China, Japan, Russia, and the Middle East, central bankers have been unloading dollars in favor of euros. The Bush policies that have deepened our debt have endangered the dollar's status as the world's reserve currency.
"As terrible as it is to live in a nation where the press in known to be controlled by the government, at least one has the advantage of knowing the bias is present, and to adjust for it. In the United States of America, we are taught from birth that our press is free from such government meddling. This is an insideous lie about the very nature of the news institution in this country. One that allows the government to lie to us while denying the very fact of the lie itself."

WHO IS ORLY BENNY DAVIS?
*** American Jews are preparing to rebuild for the ancient Temple in Jerusalem to be rebuilt. If they are familiar with the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, then they must surely be aware that in Bible prophecy the rebuilding of the Temple is the final sign before Judgement Day and the End of the World. You may not believe in prophecy but, among the leaders of nations, there are men who do. ***
Orly Benny-Davis has come a long way from her youth in Ramat Gan. Today a well-known US political activist, Benny-Davis ran for the senate last year in her home state of South Carolina. On Monday night, she was in Jerusalem to attend the 11th annual Temple Mount dinner and to help speed up the construction of the third temple.
Close to 1,000 right-wing religious activists converged on the Jerusalem International Convention Center to celebrate Tu Bishvat and listen to speakers on various topics – ranging from what the economy will be like in the time of the third temple to what type of government is ideal according to the Torah.
"The temple is part of our history," Benny-Davis, who sponsored the festivities, told The Jerusalem Post. "When I argue with people who criticize us that we are occupying another nation, I explain to them that the land has been ours for thousands of years. Just look at the Temple Mount."
From Todd Brendan Fahey of Libertythink. The Alberta Driver's licence is already being used by pubs in Edmonton to gather data on clubbers. From what I am told, this data can be sold to third parties, even though the companies and bars state that it is not.
"Another part of the bill requires states to join the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators' (AAMVA) 'Driver License Agreement,' which integrates state drivers' licenses databases with those of Canada's and Mexico's, setting up a tri-national ID card.
Text from the bill and the DLA follows.
From HR 418:
A State shall participate in the interstate compact regarding sharing of driver license data, known as the `Driver License Agreement', in order to provide electronic access by a State to information contained in the motor vehicle databases of all other States.

Tupper Saussy is arguably this generation's antithesis of Ezra Pound, the poet who opposed the Money Masters and paid the price. Saussy's new book, The Rulers of Evil: Useful knowledge about governing bodies is the dual to Dan Brown's The Davinci Code:
"I've found that DaVinci Code is a kind of Scholastic Aptitude Test for Rulers of Evil. (Formula: DVC is the SAT for ROE.)
DVC gives the devil's side of reality, which is brilliant but ends in hell. ROE shows how God uses the devil, which is equally brilliant but ends in a choice of heaven or hell.
While I was writing ROE, many confidants suggested the story might be better told as a novel. Maybe if I'd had Dan Brown's skills (DVC is the only book of his that I've read) I could have done that. But I was equipped to look just beneath the surface of things and make some sense out of what I saw, with the Bible as my final authority on questions of faith, morals, science, and history. So I just told it like it was -- and in matters of clandestine warfare, how it MOST LIKELY was (because clandestine warriors rarely leave the kind of evidence historians require).
I wonder how DVC would have developed if the Bible had been Dan Brown's final authority?
Anyway, DVC has stimulated interest in ROE, but in a word-of-mouth way. A guy says he read DVC, the ROEder says "Congratulations! Now you're ready for ROE!"
Try that, and have a couple of ROEs in the trunk of your car."
Saussy examines some of the gods and goddesses of Washington D.C. and asks just what some of its civic art represents. For example:
"She is arguably the most observed, the most seen, artifact in the world. Her statue is broadcast in millions of media impressions every day.
Rich in legal importance, she defines the relationship between American government and anyone in the world contracted to it.
She is officially classified as “the only authorized Symbol of American heritage.” Yet of the millions who see the Mystery Woman on a daily basis, very few have ever really seen her.
You can see her now by touching her with your cursor
Yes, the Mystery Woman stands atop the U.S. Capitol dome.
The act of standing upon property is an aggressive legal demonstration. Standing upon a thing is an ultimate proof of ownership in adverse possession.
Could it be that the Capitol's mystery woman literally... owns the entire facility she crowns? Could the United States Congress belong to her?
Officials named her Freedom because her classical identity, Persephone, was meaningless to most Americans.
Persephone was a Graeco-Roman goddess abducted by Saturn’s son Hades, who enthroned her as queen-consort of his dominion, the underworld. She rules over the earth’s interior, particularly the metals and minerals.
America’s Freedom is Goddess of Petroleum, a fact one should bear in mind when examining her government’s military presence in the Middle East.
How on earth did Saturn’s daughter-in-law acquire the supreme place of honor over Washington? Who put her there? When? Why? Under what circumstances? What is the theological history of this “only authorized Symbol of American heritage”? What is her future?
Answers to these and many more questions about America’s extraordinarily mysterious origins will be found in Rulers of Evil. "
For those confused over how the USA, a nominally Christian Nation can commit such horrible acts of war, Saussy has some harsh words:
"But moral authority in the Arab and Muslim world is not the Bible. A world whose moral authority comes from the Koran (or any other source, for that matter) cannot understand that the Chairman and his American beast, in building "worldwide solidarity" for the better management of evildoing, can lawfully grant special immunities from the rigors of international law to favored subjects, such as other transgressing Muslim leaders who cooperate in the solidarity process.
The world is ruled by the Bible, a single infallible standard which provides that evildoers – persons who deny the deity and unique saving power of Christ – are subject to rule by evildoers created and appointed by God. It has been so, I maintain in Rulers of Evil, since Cain. This is the fundamental fact of human life, clearly stated in the Bible: "I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things." (Isaiah 45:7)
The American beast and its Vatican mistress are evils created by God out of unregenerate humanity for the purpose of ruling souls that have chosen to be cursed by Him rather than blessed. “I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19) Since only Jesus Christ claims to be "the Life" (John 14:6), one's choosing any other means of delivery from death invites death itself, a process regulated by the rulers of evil.
A ruler of evil cannot choose the Life and continue the ruses, deceptions, violence, and betrayal necessary to remain in power. Under the scriptural standard, the "Christians" in world rulership must be followers of what the apostle Paul termed "another Jesus, another gospel," living out their death, doling out benefits and punishments to underlings living out their death. The Life is not prohibited to either, but choosing it requires coming out of Babylon, the angel's metaphor for dying in Christ and enjoying resurrection as a new eternal creature in but not of the world."
Get this book if you want to get additional insight concerning what the "Rulers of Evil" have in store for the world.
"The television news coverage of the inauguration was entirely reverential. No pundit challenged Bush’s credentials to speak as the tribune of democracy and freedom and against oppression and violence. No one dared contrast this pretense with his record of waging war abroad and attacking democratic rights at home—to say nothing of his personal bloodlust as Texas governor, when he rubber-stamped the execution of more than 150 Death Row prisoners.
The television networks devoted almost no time to the anti-Bush and antiwar protest demonstrations, far larger and more intense than the protests in 2001, after the Supreme Court intervention into the Florida vote-counting and the theft of the presidential election by the Republican Party.
Overseas, even staid and conservative bourgeois newspapers expressed shock at the extremism and religious mania of Bush’s inaugural address. “Blood-curdling,” “bizarre,” “messianic,” were some of the terms used. Die Tageszeitung in Berlin wrote: “If you take seriously what Bush said before and during his inaugural address, you will really dread this US government.” The Bush administration will “do whatever it thinks is right and won’t have anybody else disturb it. ... The horror is justified.”
In Paris, Le Monde spotlighted the cynicism of the appeals to freedom and democracy, writing, “We can fear that, in the eyes of Mr. Bush, the criteria for tyranny would essentially be hostility toward the United States, and that he would be inclined to close his eyes to the democratic failings of regimes that show cooperativeness.”
Another French newspaper, the Bordeaux-based Sud Ouest, published a column warning, “With this president, the world feels like it’s dancing on a volcano. We’re not only talking about his foreign policy, which set Iraq on fire, worsened the situation in the Middle East and loosened the link with European allies. We also think about his economic policy based on abysmal deficits which put the USA (and therefore the rest of the world) on the edge of a financial crash.”"

"Another salvation may be the economy. It's going to go very bad, folks. You know, if you have not sold your stocks and bought property in Italy, you better do it quick. And the third thing is Europe -- Europe is not going to tolerate us much longer. The rage there is enormous. I'm talking about our old-fashioned allies. We could see something there, collective action against us. Certainly, nobody -- it's going to be an awful lot of dancing on our graves as the dollar goes bad and everybody stops buying our bonds, our credit -- our -- we're spending $2 billion a day to float the debt, and one of these days, the Japanese and the Russians, everybody is going to start buying oil in Euros instead of dollars. We're going to see enormous panic here. But he could get through that. That will be another year, and the damage he's going to do between then and now is enormous. We're going to have some very bad months ahead."
The fundamental appeal of fascism to the everyday person is threefold. It consists of:
# The promise of security. Fascists typically posit threats, external and internal, that are easily identified but difficult to fight, and then promise to protect you from them - if only you will give them absolute power to do so.
# Relief from uncertainty. It is no accident that Orwell had his dictator characterize himself as Big Brother. The fascist relieves you of the responsibility to make difficult decisions. You simply follow orders - given, of course, by Big Brother.
# A share of strength. Most insidious, Big Brother will let you exercise power over others - as long as you exercise Big Brother's power Big Brother's way. "
"Among his other ventures include a gig as an international-relations adviser to PetroKazakhstan, a Calgary-based oil company that is trying to expand its oil exports to China. James Grier, a China watcher, said Chretien?s involvement with CITIC does raise eyebrows. ?There is a volume of history with this company that could impact the stature of someone like Chretien, but from what we know that seems to have little impact on Chretien, he said."
The White House announced that it will propose that the federal government spend $125 million in next year's budget to test computerization of health records. The government is spending $50 million on this in the current budget year, and Bush is also asking Congress to double that amount for 2005.

It is to track the flow and ebb of currency in the shadow/underground economy. Border guards in the US always ask if you are transporting amounts of US Dollars in excess of $10,000. It's a ruse, because if you lie, you'll get caught.

"Want to share an event with you, that we experienced this evening.. Dave had over $1000 dollars in his back pocket (in his wallet). New twenties were the lion share of the bills in his wallet. We walked into a truck stop/travel plaza and they have those new electronic monitors that are supposed to say if you are stealing something. But through every monitor, Dave set it off. He did not have anything to purchase in his hands or pockets. After numerous times of setting off these monitors, a person approached Dave with a 'wand' to swipe why he was setting off the monitors.
Believe it or not, it was his 'wallet'. That is according to the minimum wage employees working at the truck stop! We then walked across the street to a store and purchased aluminum foil. We then wrapped our cash in foil and went thru the same monitors. No monitor went off. "
"There is a renewed rumour that the European Central Bank is going to add spy chips (RFIDs) to Euro banknotes. 'Czerwensky intern', a German newsletter providing bank and insurance background reports, says the ECB might have already signed contracts with Hitachi, and is ready to introduce the spy-notes this year. Allegedly, the contract requires such a high volume of RFIDs that Hitachi can't deliver all chips itself, but has to rely on subcontractors."

Bushes laying roses at Auschwitz to thank the dead for their
contribution to the Bush family fortune. source
Why does Bush want us to remember the Horrors of Auschwitz?
So we'll forget the profits his family made there.
Prodding a global trauma is essential for mind control purposes.
KRAKOW, Poland (Reuters) - President Bush said Wednesday Auschwitz, the
Nazi death camp, served as a reminder to the world to oppose evil and
join forces in combating anti-Semitism.
Clamour Magazine, 2002:
According to classified documents from Dutch intelligence and US government archives, President George W. Bush's grandfather, Prescott Bush made considerable profits off Auschwitz slave labor. In fact, President Bush himself is an heir to these profits from the holocaust which were placed in a blind trust in 1980 by his father, former president George Herbert Walker Bush.
Throughout the Bush family's decades of public life, the American press has gone out of its way to overlook one historical fact – that through Union Banking Corporation (UBC), Prescott Bush, and his father-in-law, George Herbert Walker, along with German industrialist Fritz Thyssen, financed Adolf Hitler before and during World War II. It was first reported in 1994 by John Loftus and Mark Aarons in The Secret War Against the Jews: How Western Espionage Betrayed the Jewish People.
The Guardian, 2004
George Bush's grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.
The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.
His business dealings, which continued until his company's assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave labourers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election controversy.
Allegations that Prescott Bush profited from slave labor or the Auschwitz concentration camp remain unsubstantiated.
New Hampshire Gazette
After 60 years of inattention and even denial by the U.S. media, newly-uncovered government documents in The National Archives and Library of Congress reveal that Prescott Bush, the grandfather of President George W. Bush, served as a business partner of and U.S. banking operative for the financial architect of the Nazi war machine from 1926 until 1942, when Congress took aggressive action against Bush and his "enemy national" partners.

"In response to widespread criticism, 19 Russian lawmakers withdrew support from nationalist extremist group’s letter demanding ban on Jewish groups. They declared Jews are anti-Christian and anti-human and hatred of them is justified, recalling old Anti-Semitic symbols including blood libel."
The Telegraph takes note of the timing of this stunt, however:
"The letter, signed by 20 members of the Duma, accuses Jews of dominating politics and the world of finance abroad and underwriting a war on Russian patriotism at home.
The call comes hard on a vicious attack on two foreign rabbis in Moscow and a US-sponsored report which concludes that anti-Semitism in Russia is on the rise.
According to other reports, the number of skinheads has mushroomed from a few dozen 12 years ago to tens of thousands today.
The outburst from the Duma deputies is particularly shocking because of its sensitive timing, ahead of this week's commemoration of the liberation of Auschwitz by the Red Army 60 years ago.
. . .
"The whole democratic world today is under the financial and political control of the Jews. We would not want our Russia, which is subject to a permanent illegal war seeking to prevent its rebirth, to find itself among unfree countries."
Another telegraph examines the rise of skinhead culture in Russia.
"Skinheads may be a British invention but when it comes to sheer numbers, levels of violence and hatred of foreigners a damning new report suggests Russia has become the bovver boys' blood-soaked new playground. It may be a country that vilifies fascism more than any other and arguably had to make the most appalling sacrifices to defeat Nazi Germany 60 years ago but this is where skinhead culture has taken hold like nowhere else."
Why did the media ever let go of this massive Freudian slip?
It all started with the New York Metro article.
The old C0balt.com website had the goods on this story, but remnants remain.
From Pam Schuffert's homepage:
Condi Rice’s Freudian Slip-up regarding her Skull & Bones husband, George
“Temporary” Bush. It’s not much of a stretch to think that Dubya prefers African-American
women, as the strange death of Margie Schoedinger indicates.
This is the type of information that Cloak and Dagger deals in, and to the trained eye,
truth really is stranger than fiction."
The world can only wait for the inevitable fall of the US economy.

Google knows. According to Lauren Weinstein, an Internet activist and privacy expert based in Southern California, Google keeps track of every search that�s made, as well as the Internet location of the computer from which the search is taking place � and then it stores that information for possible future use. Moreover, he says, it would not be terribly difficult to trace those searches to the person who made them. That�s you and me.
I was originally reading this article by Haaretz that extols the virtues of having US foreign policy formed by 25 people, most of which "happen to be Jewish". Fine. Whatever. But what is more interesting is the Masonic logo of TAGLIT which combines the Eye of Horus with the Star of David and the Masonic symbol for God, the Square and Compass. All this gives more credence to Jerry Golden's astounding article, The Roots of Evil in Jerusalem which highlights how the coming world order will be ruled by the Rothschild courts set up in Jerusalem through a process called the Laws of Noahide, or Noachide. The only person to describe this is the author of Watch Unto Prayer, arguably the most mind-blowing website you will ever visit.
Iraqi lawyer representing Saddam Hussein has reportedly gone into hiding
By Associated Press
Monday, January 24, 2005
AMMAN, Jordan - An Iraqi lawyer on Saddam Hussein's defense team has received several death threats in the last three weeks and has gone into hiding, the chief defense attorney for the deposed Iraqi leader said Monday.
US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld cancelled a planned visit to Germany after a US human rights organisation asked German authorities to prosecute him for war crimes, Deutsche Presse-Agentur (dpa) has learned.
Rumsfeld has informed the German government via the US embassy that he will not take part in the Munich Security Conference in February, conference head Horst Teltschik told dpa on Thursday.
The New York-based Centre for Constitutional Rights filed a
complaint in December with the Federal German Prosecutor's Office against Rumsfeld accusing him of war crimes and torture in connection with detainee abuses at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison.
SARS and BSE were just the precursor to the real thing, perhaps.
OTTAWA (CP) - A war game that simulated a co-ordinated attack with a smallpox virus on a dozen sites worldwide suggests Canada and other countries are ill-prepared to counter bio-terrorism, says the woman who played prime minister.
The Washington-based exercise, dubbed Atlantic Storm, highlighted problems with co-ordination and co-operation among countries, said Barbara McDougall, a former Progressive Conservative cabinet minister."

In all the annals of the Media Conspiracy, few hubbubs are so simultaneously tumultuous and trivial as the Case of Prince Harry's Swastika."
Der Spiegel writes:
Despite his famous promise, California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger may not be back after all. To his home country of Austria that is. By allowing the execution of 61-year-old Donald Beardslee in California on Wednesday, Schwarzenegger may have violated the Austrian law which prohibits the application of the death penalty. Now the country's Green Party is attempting to strip him of his Austrian passport.
. . .
But it's not just Austrian politicians who are angry at the Terminator. The media in his home country has also given him a tongue lashing. "Arnold Schwarzenegger obviously wants to become president of the USA and he can't out himself as a wimp, he's said openly" wrote the left-leaning daily Der Standard. "'Terminator' means, analogously, "life-ender' and he can't be unfaithful to that image. The US has clearly slid to the right in recent years and the acceptance and efficiency of the death penalty belongs to the unshiftable doctrines of the right, regardless of what the reality is. Even 'our Arnie' wouldn't think of doing anything to reduce his election chances."

"Insensibly" Sliding Into Tyranny
by William Norman Grigg
January 21, 2005
By waging open-ended foreign wars for "liberty," warned John Quincy Adams, America's ruling philosophy would "insensibly change from [one of] liberty to force...." That warning, sadly, was amply validated by George W. Bush's Second Inaugural Address.
"America, in this young century, proclaims liberty throughout the world, and to all the inhabitants thereof."
It is a reflection of George W. Bush’s peculiar gifts that this lyrical scriptural phrase becomes a threat when it falls from his lips. It’s likely that hundreds of millions of people reacted to President Bush’s proclamation of global "liberty" by dashing to the nearest bomb shelter.
While he cites the non-existent "Edmonton Times" as a source, he may have just slipped. He says that he will reveal it next week, but no stories related to this topic come up in a google news search on the Edmonton Sun and Edmonton Journal. Other than the story on Barlink below.
If Jack is talking about this new program, Barlink, then he might have mis-quoted its relation to the U of A. He might have scanned the article and saw University of Alberta at the bottom. Nevertheless, Barlink shows how, in the name of profits, private enterprises are welcoming in the police state, and governments are allowing them to abuse technologies inherent in the Alberta Driver's license.
"University of Alberta law professor Gerry Gall said it's "amazing" how little privacy people have left. "I have a level of discomfort when something like that goes on ... because it's another example of how our privacy is so fragile and there is an erosion of privacy all around us.""
There is no privacy left in Edmonton. Due to all the violence in nightclubs, we have seen Whyte Avenue, the primary entertainment district, introduce security cameras on every street corner. This has only driven the violence away from that area and now we have to submit our driver's licences to be scanned before gaining entry into many clubs/pubs in town. With the recent stabbing fatality, programs such as these will likely increase in use.
: "Privacy experts say they're uneasy about a program that scans bar patrons' identification into an electronic system that can red-flag troublemakers. And bars might face legal challenges if they refuse entry to patrons who show their ID but won't let it be scanned, suggests a spokesman for the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Alberta.
'That could be a charter issue,' said Tim Chander. 'I'm sure there are some lawyers out there who would love to tackle that one.'
Through the Barlink electronic information-sharing system, club staff who scan in a patron's identification are alerted to any patron who's been banned from other bars."

Iran says U.S. attack would be big error
Sun Jan 23, 2005 12:39 PM ET
By Parisa Hafezi
TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran, responding to comments by senior U.S. officials, says any U.S. military attack on the country would be a strategic mistake and dismissed the U.S. remarks as "psychological warfare".
U.S. President George W. Bush last week said military action against Iran's nuclear programme had not been ruled out and Vice President Dick Cheney said Iran topped the list of world trouble spots and Israel could decide to bomb its nuclear facilities.
But Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi said: "We think the chance (of a U.S. military attack) is very low unless someone wants to make a major strategic mistake."
"Logically speaking, we don't think this is going to happen," he told a weekly news conference on Sunday.
Iranian officials, including President Mohammad Khatami, said last week Iran would respond vigorously to any attack.
Analysts have said Tehran has ballistic missiles capable of striking Israel or U.S. bases in the Gulf and can easily stir up violence in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine through proxy agents and militant groups it backs.
Asefi, echoing comments by other senior Iranian officials, dismissed the U.S. remarks as "psychological warfare".
"These kind of remarks are clear examples of cultural and religious war which will only lead to people's hatred of U.S. policies ... and will isolate America more than before," he said.
An article in The New Yorker magazine this month said the United States was conducting secret reconnaissance missions in Iran to help identify potential nuclear, chemical and missile targets.
But Iranian Intelligence Minister Ali Yunesi dismissed the report by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh.
"This person is crazy. He thinks Iran is chaotic and that whoever wants to enter the country, can easily do so," the ISNA students news agency quoted Yunesi as saying on Sunday. "If it was so, the Americans would have achieved their goals much sooner."
U.S. Pentagon officials have said the New Yorker report was "riddled with errors".
Asefi said Cheney's comments about Israel attacking Iran's nuclear facilities underscored the influence Israel had on U.S. foreign policy.
"Iran has always said that Tel Aviv decides U.S. policies and that the Zionist lobby is so powerful in the United States, therefore we were not surprised by such remarks," he said.
Iran says its nuclear programme is peaceful and will be used only to generate electricity, not to build atomic bombs.
"The Americans believe they can impose their demands and use force," Asefi said.
"We're expecting Bush in his second term to pay more attention to the international community and organisations which were created to solve international problems and to handle the countries that are not following international demands."

Kurt Nimmo was recently nominated by John Kaminski as one of the top 25 writers on the internet.
"Tony Blankley, editorializing for the Moonie owned and operated Washington Times, suggests Seymour Hersh is a traitor and a spy and should be tried for espionage. Blankley admits that he does not know if Hersh’s article—The Coming Wars: What the Pentagon Can Now Do in Secret—is technically a violation of the unconstitutional Espionage Act, but considers it only one of many “egregious government leaks of military secrets” to the press, in other words Blankley is outraged by the fact the American people have learned the details of the Strausscon plan to wage World War IV against the Muslim world."

Website Closed by Department of Homeland Security
'Primum non nocere'
By Douglas J. Hagmann
22 January 2005: National Public Radio is reporting that Internet website was taken down on Friday by federal officials for publishing 'reports about tips on possible terrorist activity that have been filed with the Department of Homeland Security.' At first read, that statement causes concern as it suggests that the Department of Homeland Security has silenced a website for providing terrorism activity updates with the American people. Reading further into the news report, however, it states: 'Federal officials say the information [published on the website] is not classified but is sensitive, and could jeopardize some investigations and undercover operatives.' Despite that clarification, many otherwise sensible and rational people will condemn the government's action as a move by big brother to keep the public in the dark, relegating everyone outside of a select few to 'sheeple status.' I could not disagree more.
At issue is the website Cryptome.org, operated by 69 year-old John Young - an architect by profession. From his writings, Mr. Young appears to be a colorful man with some interesting sources and very controversial tactics. His website has been the apparent center of controversy for some time due to the type of information that he published. For example, Young's site was the topic of an ABC news story on August 12, 2004 that was titled 'Too Much information?' ABC News noted that Young publicly posted information about the 2004 Democratic National Convention, including satellite photos of the convention site and the location of specific police barricades. He further referenced that the security for the convention was 'a complete joke,' generating complaints to authorities about the nature of the material he placed in the public domain. ABC News stated that 'in response to a complaint, two special agents from the FBI's counterter"
Alberta, Canada Lottery Ad
By Hanneke Brooymans
The Edmonton Journal
EDMONTON - A Nazi party anthem that was accidentally selected as background music for a Royal Canadian Legion lottery advertisement caused so many complaints it was pulled the day it first aired on Alberta-wide radio stations.
'It should never have happened, that's why it was taken off,' said Harvey Shevalier, first vice-president of the Alberta and Northwest Territories command for the Legion.
'It sounds good, but it's not the appropriate kind of music,' he added. '(Members) are very disgruntled or disappointed that it would even get out there without somebody knowing what it was. And rightfully so.'
The anthem, called the Horst Wessel Lied, features the deep drums and energetic brass typical of marching songs and calls for a sprinkling of Hitler salutes throughout the song.
Mr. Shevalier, a veteran of peacekeeping missions, said a military historian, called the Legion to alert them to the musical mistake on Monday.
The music was judged suitable by the Calgary marketing and lottery management company Stride Management, and the Legion lottery committee, said Laurel Harris, a media director for the company.
The music was selected from a random tape of marching music that did not have song titles on it, she said.
'We felt the music was completely suitable, but obviously we were unaware,' she said.
Wessel was a Nazi party member until his murder in 1930. His song became part of the German national anthem in 1933, according to a paper by George Broderick published in International Folklore Review.
A regulation attached to a printed version of the song in 1934 made it clear the right arm had to be raised in a Hitler salute whenever the first and fourth verses were sung.
After Hitler came to power, the song formed the second part to the national anthem after the Deutschland lied and "

In Wicca and some other pagan traditions, there exists a practice known as casting a circle.
Drawing or tracing a circle (or pentagram, star or other shape) allows an area to be consecrated for either temporary or permanent protection and possibly other benefits. This allows those within the circle to carry on with whatever mystical or magical procedures they are taking part in.
. . .
The pentacle (a pentagram (five-pointed star) inside of a circle) is shown with its point facing upward because the upper point represents spirit. Thus, the spirit is recognized as being more important than the four other points, which represent physical manifestations. When, in Satanism for example, the pentacle is inverted, the point representing spirit faces downward, symbolising that it is less important than physical things.

OSLO, Norway -- Many Norwegian television viewers were shocked to see U.S. President George W. Bush and family apparently saluting Satan during the U.S. inauguration.
But in reality, it was just a sign of respect for the University of Texas Longhorns, whose fans are known to shout out "Hook 'em, horns!" at athletic events.
The president and family were photographed lifting their right hands with their index and pinky fingers raised up, much like a horn.
But in much of the world those "horns" are a sign of the devil. In the Nordics, the hand gesture is popular among death metal and black metal groups and fans.

The Devil's Hand: No, It's Not 'Hook 'Em Horns'
The mainstram media cartel has vainly tried to explain away this bizarre and occult hand signal by implying that this is the "hook 'em horns" sign used by Texas Longhorn football fans.
Not so. The devil's hand has been observed and photographed around the world, used by George Bush, Bill Clinton, Silvio Berlusconi, Elizabeth Taylor, Prince William, Paul McCartney,Metallica, Ozzie, Avril Lavigne, Stephen Dorff, Dave Navarro and many others.
Is this a veiled threat?

Ok, this is dripping with irony. Illuminati pictures is filming a documentary on 5 Christians charged for protesting.
"After a preliminary hearing in December, Judge William Austin Meehan ordered four of the Christians to stand trial on three felony and five misdemeanor charges.

According to a 2003 Pentagon report prepared in conjunction with Shell Oil, the greatest threat to humankind is not terrorism, but the environment. In case you haven't noticed, 260,000 people are expected to show up dead due to the Indonesian Tsunami disaster. Why is climate change likely to get worse? Well, the US and the Aussies may have already perfected weather modification warfare as an alternative to nuclear war. As long as people believe that extreme weather is caused by a Higher Power, it can be dismissed as, quite aptly, "An act of God". Therefore, nobody is held liable for the damage, which is opposite the case when a nation launches a nuclear weapon.
"The world-renowned anti-nuclear and environmental activist and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Helen Caldicott, has warned that US President George Bush's re-election does not bode well for mankind, and she fears that the human race may not survive his second term (2005-2009).
'This is the most serious election that has ever occurred in the history of the human race, without a scrag of doubt. I don't know if we'll survive the next four years ... I don't think the
Americans have, on the whole, the faintest idea - and I have to say also I don't think most Australians do either. But it's not just the threat from nuclear war. It's the threat of what's happening to the environment, the global warming which is occurring rapidly now, to ozone depletion, to species extinction, to deforestation - it's the whole thing,' the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Caldicott as saying."
