. . . we should look more closely at what the nature of business is, because I don't think Armand Hammer [a Jew] was alone in using the techniques of bribery and things that you wouldn't speak about in public [gross deception, conspiracy, amorality, etc.] to achieve an economic purpose. I think that he might be much more representative of a kind of business, especially a business that depends on government favor and government concession.
. . . this [Nuremberg Trial] staff is about 75% Jewish . . . the charge 'a war for the Jews' is still being made and in the post-war years it will be made again and again.
Tom Dodd, father of future Senator Chris, in Sep 1945 while a Nuremberg Trial prosecutor
This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.
Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience.
Israel’s Prime Minister [Benjamin Netanyahu] is well-placed to explain to the U.S. Congress the alleged danger of a nuclear Iran. After all, it was Israel and its allies in Washington who fabricated this issue to begin with.
There are millions of Christians in America’s churches that couldn’t tell you what’s in the Bible to save their lives. They couldn’t quote the Ten Commandments; they couldn’t quote the Golden Rule; they couldn’t name Christ’s apostles; they couldn’t quote five verses of Scripture from memory if their lives depended on it.
In all ages the people of the world, equally with individuals, have accepted words for deeds, for THEY ARE CONTENT WITH A SHOW and rarely pause to note, in the public arena, whether promises are followed by performance.
Thrice is he armed that hath his quarrel just. —Shakespeare, British playwright But four times he who gets his blow in fust. —Josh Billlings, American writer
MIT economist Jonathan Gruber’s factually impoverished testimony on Obamacare [before the House] didn’t get nearly the attention it should have, as congressional Democrats cleverly decided to release a report on CIA torture abuses on the same day.
Eric Margolis, top Middle East expert, gives the present status in Syria and also the Middle East. There are certain kinds of Middle Eastern countries in which western countries are interested in intervening on a "humanitarian" basis: those that have strategic resources or geographic locations and that are pushovers militarily.
Julian Assange, head of WikiLeaks, says most peoples don't want war. They have to be lied into it. Most media doesn't counteract the distortions or dig into what's being fed to them the way they should, he elaborates.
Hawaiian Electric Co., First Wind, state, local and community leaders gathered on March 24, 2011 at the Oahu North Shore windmill project for a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The 30 MW project eyesore was touted as being environmentally friendly, yet with the capacity to generate enough renewable energy to power up to 7,700 Oahu homes each year.
Panos Prevedouros, civil and environmental engineering professor at the University of Hawaii-Manoa and former Honolulu mayoral candidate, visits the Kahuku windmills a month later and records what he sees on video for us.
Larry O'Donnell interviews Condoleeza Rice. He wants her answers on the phony reasons that the public was given to invade Iraq. She tells him to quit interrupting while she's answering and threatens to walk out.
The CIA orchestrated to prevent the Department of Energy head from attending a critical interagency intelligence meeting chaired by George Tenet.
The Energy Secretary's strong advocacy for the correct interpretation of the facts was unwanted by those intent on war with Iraq. Col. Lawrence Wilkerson (ret., Army), Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell during the Baby Bush administration, says the Energy Secretary was not at the meeting. At the time Wilkerson was not aware of the reason.
Paul Craig Roberts was the Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury during the Ronald Reagan administration, becoming known as “the father of Reaganomics.” He is a former associate editor of the Wall Street Journal.
Paul Joseph Watson of Prison Planet interviews Roberts about the death of Osama bin Laden. Roberts doesn't believe the story about Osama bin Laden being killed, believing instead that he died years ago. Quite interesting to hear Roberts' reasoning out the perplexities of the unfolding story.
He says the two questions to focus on are 1) what are the real agendas behind this story and 2) why did the government change its story?
Elliot Spitzer, disgraced former Democratic governor of New York and present co-host of CNN's In the Arena, does a great job here in his interview of two Middle East specialists concerning the reported killing of Osama bin Laden this past Sunday. The two are Chris Hedges, Pulitzer Prize-winning former New York Times Middle East bureau chief, and Stephen Carter, Yale Law School professor and author of a piece in the upcoming Newsweek magazine issue (not on sale yet).
Was the unarmed bin Laden murdered? Hedges thinks so, but Carter takes exception to the word, citing the "Laws of War." So what are you going to believe? The dictionary or the government? The latter brings uncomfortably to mind 1984's doublethink. On the other hand, Carter does call the killing an "assassination."
Cenk Uygur interviews Army Col. Lawrence Wilkerson (ret.), former Chief of Staff to Genl. Colin Powell during the Baby Bush administration. He says some surprising things for an ex-military man about why we invaded Iraq and who was really President during Bush's first term, when the U.S. was busy getting into its two-front war, creating the new Cabinet post of Homeland Security, and massively eroding American rights in the name of safety.
Cenk, who is presumably a dual citizen (Turkey-U.S.), is unforgiving of Bush's inability to remember the Pakistani and Middle Eastern names of prominent world leaders.
