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.

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.
Hawaii Political Info introduction: Matt Taibbi, whom everyone should know by now writes for Rolling Stone, pens, "Everything is rigged."
Wonder if that has anything to do with gasoline prices?
While realizing we will be called anti-Semites and racists for doing so, may we point out who the power players in the banking industry are?
The Illuminati were amateurs. The second huge financial scandal of the year reveals the real international conspiracy: There's no price the big banks can't fix

Conspiracy theorists of the world, believers in the hidden hands of the Rothschilds and the Masons and the Illuminati, we skeptics owe you an apology. You were right. The players may be a little different, but your basic premise is correct: The world is a rigged game. We found this out in recent months, when a series of related corruption stories spilled out of the financial sector, suggesting the world's largest banks may be fixing the prices of, well, just about everything.
You may have heard of the Libor scandal, in which at least three – and perhaps as many as 16 – of the name-brand too-big-to-fail banks have been manipulating global interest rates, in the process messing around with the prices of upward of $500 trillion (that's trillion, with a "t") worth of financial instruments. When that sprawling con burst into public view last year, it was easily the biggest financial scandal in history – MIT professor Andrew Lo even said it "dwarfs by orders of magnitude any financial scam in the history of markets."
The Daily Beast's David Frum makes it clear he does not like former Congressman Ron Paul (R) and doesn't care much for his son Senator Rand Paul (R) either.
In an article entitled "Rand Paul's Biggest Liability: His Dad," Frum writes,
Ron Paul's been drawing negative publicity recently. Well, that's the down-side of filling the board of your new think tank with conspiracy theorists, anti-semites, and authors of racist newsletters. [David Frum, The Daily Beast]
On the plus side, however, Iran's Press TV still has nice things to say about the former Texas member of Congress and Republican presidential contender. An op-ed today by regular Press TV contributor Gordon Duff leaps to Paul's defense. [Frum]
A little investigation shows that David Frum is Jewish and The Daily Beast is Jewish owned. He was originally from Canada and served on the Canada-Israel Committee. After he emigrated to the U.S. he became an AIPAC member and a speechwriter for President George W. Bush. He is on the board of directors of the Republican Jewish Coalition.
Ron Paul thinks that foreign countries should stand on their own two feet and U.S. taxpayers should not be shelling out for foreign aid. When asked, he said that includes Israel. Frum is on record (44:40 mark) as advocating foreign aid to Israel.
U.S. morals have changed too, says Gerald Celente.

Russia Today introduction: Victims both dead and alive are still being pulled from the wreckage of the Bangladesh building where 8 stories came crashing down on 3 thousand people. Bank staff were told not to come to work after cracks appeared in the doomed complex but garment factories told their employees all was safe. Gerald Celente, publisher of Trendjournal, joins RT studio to give his perspective on who is really to blame for the 300 deaths and thousands injured.
Russia Today introduction:The deadly bombing of Boston Marathon confirms Russia's position that terrorists are a common threat to all nations and must never be supported for political gains, says Russian President Vladimir Putin. Putin was commenting in Moscow during his annual Q&A session on the flood of comments in the US, many of them from common people, which blamed Russia, where the suspects in the bombing were born, over the crime.
MOSCOW (AP) -- The Boston bombings should spur stronger security cooperation between Moscow and Washington, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday, adding that they also show that the West was wrong in supporting militants in Chechnya.
Putin said that "this tragedy should push us closer in fending off common threats, including terrorism, which is one of the biggest and most dangerous of them."
The two brothers accused of the Boston bombings are ethnic Chechens who had lived in the U.S. for more than a decade.
The Problem Isn't Just Illegal Immigration, It's Legal Immigration, Too
April 24, 2013

The people of Boston are no longer being terrorized by the Marathon bombers, but amnesty supporters sure are.
On CNN's "State of the Union" last weekend, Sen. Lindsey Graham's response to the Boston Marathon bombers being worthless immigrants who hate America -- one of whom the FBI cleared even after being tipped off by Russia -- was to announce: "The fact that we could not track him has to be fixed."
Track him? How about not admitting him as an immigrant?

Brian Schatz (D), U.S. Senator from Hawaii, wants to grant amnesty to illegal aliens who have broken immigration laws. Do Americans get such blanket forgiveness for breaking the law? No, it's illegal aliens who do, which tells us who he and fellow Democrats of his ilk consider important.
He writes in an email today, "Our country is built on the shoulders of generations of immigrants who came here seeking a better life.
"That's why I am so excited to join with 13 of my fellow Senate Democrats to stand up for comprehensive immigration reform, supporting groundbreaking legislation introduced in the Senate this week.
"We have a real chance to create boundless opportunities for a new generation of immigrants who have come to our country to seek a better life for themselves and their families -- and fix our broken immigration system in the process."
He adds, "More than so many other states, Hawaii understands how important it is to move this legislation forward, and I will do everything I can to make sure it does."
This sounds like a crass appeal from the Jewish Senator to our state's minority racial status and our perceived lack of appreciation for American values.
Hawaii and the U.S. has a virtual invasion of illegal aliens — most of whom are from third world, corrupt societies. While immigrants can be and often are an asset, an invasion of illegals that changes American values away from the freedom and moral foundation that has allowed the country to flourish and moves instead towards corruption, taking advantage of the system and dictatorship, is a disaster. Hawaii and the country need controlled immigration, not borders open to all comers.
Gary Franchi, head of Restore the Republic and Aaron Russo's designated heir, sounds off at the spectacle we witnessed over the last week of police shredding the Fourth Amendment (freedom from unreasonable search) in Boston, threatening citizens in their own homes with violence and loaded guns.
We even had the unprecedented spectacle of police forcing one innocent man to strip naked while mainstream media video cameras ran. Perhaps other did too. Why did the victim comply? Most likely because he felt he'd be roughed up pretty badly if he didn't, or perhaps even shot up and killed. The video of the naked man was broadcast all over the country. It's hard to think of anything more humiliating and more of a violation of privacy than that.
But the U.S. now has a population where even that is acceptable, as long as it's presented as being for the public safety.
The Tarnaev brothers' aunt said she was "100 percent sure" that the naked man was Tamerlan, the older brother, but he doesn't appear as tall as Tamerlan, who his aunt said was nearly 2 meters tall (over 6'6") and he has no discernible hair on his chest, whereas Tamerlan did.
As in the past, we face a fallout from those we supported

Russia Today introduction: Despite being of Chechen descent, the alleged bombers spent most of their lives in the US after their parents applied for asylum. Both were rare visitors to Russia, but this didn't stop Moscow from raising the alarm over possible terrorist intentions of the older brother. RT's Gayane Chichakyan reports on why the concerns failed to prevent the Boston tragedy.
Also, James Petras, Professor of Sociology at Binghamton University, believes the US is walking on very thin ice, when it backs questionable armed factions elsewhere in the world.
