The 9/11 attacks were planned in Hamburg, Germany and, apparently, Madrid, Spain, not by al-Qaida in Afghanistan, as the US claimed. The planners and executors of the attacks were mostly Saudis, not Afghans.
The more the corrupt western politicians and media whores demonized [Hugo] Chavez, the more Venezuelans loved him. They understood completely that anyone damned by Washington was God’s gift to the world.
The study of history is a powerful antidote to contemporary arrogance. It is humbling to discover how many of our glib assumptions, which seem to us novel and plausible, have been tested before, not once but many times and in innumerable guises; and discovered to be, at great human cost, wholly false.
In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all – security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again.
Let us then come to a preliminary finding, to the effect that the past lends itself all too readily to use by those who have a political axe to grind. Nothing works better to further a cause—good or bad—than to lend it legitimacy by supplying it with a long heritage.
I am frankly opposed to this war criminal stuff. It is not cricket and is Semitic. I am also opposed to sending POW's to work as slaves in foreign lands (i.e., sent by the US to the USSR's Gulags, France), where many will be starved to death.
Genl George S Patton, Sep 14, 1945 (The Patton Papers, vol 2, p 750)
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
Russia Today introduction: A US Army veteran has been charged with conspiracy for fighting alongside a Syrian rebel group linked to al-Qaeda. Eric Harroun, known to Syrians as 'the American', has appeared in numerous videos with members of the al-Nusra Front, designated by the US as a terrorist group. His father claims his son was working for the CIA, and would never join a militant group. RT's Gayane Chichakyan examines where the US draws the line between terrorists and so-called freedom-fighters.
Salem al Jamayli, the former head of intelligence for Iraq in the U.S., says that America manipulated its public to get them to accept the Iraq war. This is something that we already know. But it's still shocking even now to be reminded that the American people did absolutely nothing when it soon became abundantly clear that they had been lied to and that we were in a major war because of it with a large number of deaths.
Mr. al Jamayli maintains that the American Jewish lobby and Jews in the Defense Department pushed hard to get the U.S. to attack Iraq, making the American move to war unstoppable despite all the Iraqi government could do.
HPI has checked al Jamayli's statement about Jews in the Defense Department. Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz and Douglas Feith were in the George W. Bush Department of Defense and all played active, significant roles in pushing the U.S. into the Iraq War — under false pretenses, as we quickly learned. All but Donald Rumsfeld are Jewish.
Al Jamayli states that the Iraqi government gave the U.S. credit for a minimum amount of mental capacity, never expecting that we didn't even have that, at least from their point of view. The result was that once the Hussein government fell, Al Qaeda and Iranian influence spread widely across the region. Such stupidity on the part of the U.S. was completely unanticipated by the Iraqis. It's the wars that we promulgated that sparked the economic crisis that we ourselves are going through now, he points out.
Prior to the invasion, the American public was told that because Iraq was one of the top producers of oil in the world, our gas prices should go down as the result of our invasion of Iraq. This was when gas was an average of $1.59 per gallon across the U.S., which was considered high.
Jan C. Biro, M.D., has written an interesting article on the subject of Jewish bias in the awarding of Nobel Prizes.
Many of us have noticed that Jews get considerably more Nobel Prizes than their reputed numbers in the population would lead one to expect. Many of the goyim therefore have drawn the conclusion that Jews are impressively above the rest of us in intelligence, and more efficient workers too.
We see, for example, that Jews have taken 41 percent of the Nobel Prizes in economics and 26 percent of those in physics. Albert Einstein, a German Jew, was a Nobel Prize winner and probably the best-known scientist of the 20th century.
Dr. Biro, who is Swedish, has taken the trouble to look into the matter and now reports on his findings.
According to Freedom in the 50 States, a project at George Mason University, Hawaii's freedom rank is an abysmal #47. But people on the mainland don't seem to expect much from Hawaii when it comes to American values. Many white Americans, judging from remarks we've personally heard, think of it as more of a foreign country than one that is in sync with the values of the mainland states. This study is just going to reinforce those "racist," but apparently realistic, opinions. For voting rates, too, Hawaii is at or near the bottom of the list.
Which state is beating even Hawaii, which back in 2007 was at #49, for the least free state?
New York! The state with Michael Bloomberg, a Jewish billionaire, as the mayor of New York City. You may recall that he pushed to overturn a law limiting the number of terms for mayor to two. He is now on his third term. Since becoming NYC mayor he has moved like a rocket up the Forbes billionaire list, where he is now ranked at #13 worldwide and #7 in the U.S.
Hizzoner also pushed through a ban on sugary drinks over 16 ounces at fast food restaurants. It was overturned on the eve of its implementation earlier this month. The overturned law placed no size limit on drinks containing such unhealthy artificial sweeteners as aspartame, alleged to put holes in the human brain.
But back to Hawaii and its abysmal #47 ranking on the freedom scale. We certainly have politicians, duly elected by the people, who would be kindred spirits with Mayor Bloomberg, feeling that the people need to be managed "for their own good," especially since they're considered not very bright or informed. This tends to be a Democratic value, although here we have the phenomenon of Republicans who campaign on how simpatico they are with the elected congressional Democratic delegation, as GOP stars Linda Lingle and Charles Djou did in their campaigns for U.S. Senator and U.S. Congressman respectively last year. They went down to solid defeats while alienating their Republican base. Why would voters waste their votes with the likes of them when they can get the real thing by voting Democrat? Which they did: in droves.

British historian David Irving says that contrary to what the American public was told and continues to be told about saving 500,000 American lives by dropping the atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan at the time wanted to surrender — and the U.S., the U.S.S.R. and Britain knew it.
Why then did the U.S. drop those bombs, killing 200,000 people and unleashing a horrific new weapon on the world? Irving says that years later, Lt. General Leslie Groves, head of the Manhattan Project, told him that the U.S. had to drop the atom bomb on Hiroshima to test it.
The Japanese are aware of this. Evidence is given to visitors at the Hiroshima Memorial that the U.S. viewed the dropping of the bomb there as "somewhat" of an experiment.
Japanese are almost always much too polite to indicate in English that Americans have ever done anything wrong. One needs to be able to understand Japanese to get information that might be taken as casting the U.S. in a bad light.
But apparently the Japanese feel so strongly about two atomic bombs being dropped on them that they couldn't restrain themselves completely at the Hiroshima Museum, where the experimental aspect of the attack was just briefly mentioned when HPI visited about 10 years ago.
A visit there, with the abundance of physical evidence, is sobering, even for brainwashed Americans. On the other hand, it's well-known that the Japanese people are not educated in their schools on their own cruel war history.
Russia Today introduction: EU 'thieves' will force people to think twice about where to keep their money, so that it isn't confiscated like in Cyprus. The Middle East and Asia are the most likely places where these funds will travel next, Patrick Young told RT.
From a Dec 13, 2008 Coast-to-Coast radio show. General George S. Patton did three tours in Hawaii, playing polo with Walter Dillingham while he was here. His wife Beatrice loved the islands and wrote a book, Blood of the Shark, a Romance of Early Hawaii, based on her research into Hawaiiana.
Last week, during a series of Senate votes on the budget resolution, a majority of senators voted for an amendment endorsing the so-called "Marketplace Fairness Act." The underlying Act has nothing to do with fairness and everything to do with enriching large companies and bloated state governments, while harming small businesses, taxpayers, and consumers.
The National Internet Tax Mandate, as Campaign for Liberty refers to the bill, would impose costly regulations on our nation's job creators at a time when the economy is still struggling and millions of Americans are out of work. Businesses would be forced to become tax collectors in compliance with thousands of tax jurisdictions, and any increased operational costs would be passed on to consumers in the form of higher prices.
It is unfortunately no surprise that some of the nation's most powerful businesses are lobbying hard for this legislation. While these companies can afford to absorb the additional burden imposed by this bill, their smaller competitors cannot.
