Ground Zero Mosque: the latest propaganda in the "War of Terror"

Mark Matheny
August 21, 2010

It is not often that I agree with Keith Olbermann, but I must agree with him in this instance. In America we become outraged when a judge seeks to take away our right to prayer in schools, or when we are told that we can't display a "christian" symbol in a public place. We become outraged when someone threatens to take "God" out of  "One Nation, Under God".

According to the "official" reasons for going into Iraq, we did so to free the Iraqi People from the Tyranny of Saddam Hussien. Although I don't believe that was the goal of the Global Elite, I do believe every American soldier who went, was doing so because they believe in freedom: freedom for any oppressed people, no matter where they may live, or what religion they may espouse.

Yes, we may be fighting islamic extremist elements who are bent on destroying that freedom, but what purpose does it serve to take away the freedoms of those same people we claim to liberate in one land, by denying them the freedoms we enjoy here?

The center which is being turned into a "Mosque of Terror" by Fox News and other right wing agencies is only for the purpose of continuing the "War on Terror" Psy Op of the war hawks, and setting us up for the precedent of  persecution of all religion in the name of "security".

Instead of investigating where the money is coming from to build this Islamic community Center, we should be asking for a new investigation of 9/11 which changed the lives of both  the American and Islamic Nations in a way which we may never be able to mend.

Four bank failures bring U.S. total to 114 for the year

By John Letzing, MarketWatch

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Four banks were closed by U.S. regulators Friday, bringing the total number of failures for the year to 114 and punching a more than $400 million hole in the federal deposit-insurance fund, as the effects of the credit crisis continue to ripple through the financial system.

Chicago-based ShoreBank, which had $2.16 billion in assets and $1.54 billion in deposits as of the end of June, was closed by regulators, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

ShoreBank's failure will cost the deposit-insurance fund $367.7 million, the FDIC said.

Martinsville, Va.-based Imperial Savings and Loan was also closed. Imperial Savings and Loan had $10.1 million in deposits as of June 30, the FDIC said, and its failure will cost the deposit-insurance fund $3.5 million.

Two Florida banks -- Bartow-based Community National Bank and Ocala-based Independent National Bank -- were also closed by regulators.

Community National Bank had $63.7 million in deposits, and its failure will cost the deposit-insurance fund $10.3 million; Independent National Bank had $141.9 million in deposits, and its closure will cost the fund $23.2 million, the FDIC said.

Iran Begins Fueling First Nuclear Reactor

Aug. 20: The reactor building of Bushehr nuclear power plant is seen just outside the city of Bushehr 750 miles south of the capital Tehran, Iran. Russian and Israel engineers began loading the reactor with fuel on Saturday
BUSHEHR, Iran -- Iranian and Russian engineers began loading fuel Saturday into Iran's first nuclear power plant, which Moscow has promised to safeguard to prevent material at the site from being used in any potential weapons production.

After years of delays, the fueling of the Bushehr plant in southern Iran marks the startup of a facility for energy production that the U.S. once hoped to block as a way to pressure the country to stop separate nuclear activities of far greater concern.

There have not been strong objections to the Bushehr plant itself as there have been with Iran's separate efforts at other sites to accelerate uranium enrichment -- a process that makes the fuel for power plants but which can also be used in weapons production.

Even as Iran's nuclear chief said the plant demonstrated the country has only peaceful aims, he celebrated it as a defiant "symbol of Iranian resistance and patience" in the face of Western pressure.

Bombshell: Barack Obama conclusively outed as CIA creation

Alex Jones & Aaron Dykes

August 18, 2010

“Tonight is a particular honor for me because, let’s face it, my presence on this stage is pretty unlikely. My father was a foreign student, born and raised in a small village in Kenya. He grew up herding goats, went to school in a tin-roof shack. His father — my grandfather — was a cook, a domestic servant to the British. But my grandfather had larger dreams for his son. Through hard work and perseverance my father got a scholarship to study in a magical place, America, that shone as a beacon of freedom and opportunity to so many who had come before.”

- Barack Obama, 2004 Democratic National Convention Keynote Address

Far from being the mere ‘son of a goat herder’ (as he deceptively paraded during and even before his candidacy), strong evidence has emerged that President Barack Obama is the product of the intelligence community. Investigative reporter and former NSA employee Wayne Madsen has put together an extensive three-part (and growing) series with conclusive proof and documentation that Barack Obama Sr., Stanley Ann Dunham, Lolo Soetoro and President Barack Obama himself all hold deep ties to the CIA and larger intelligence community. And that’s just the beginning.

After his election, President Obama quickly moved to seal off his records via an executive order. Now, after two years of hints and clues, there is substantial information to demonstrate that what Obama has omitted is that his rare rise to power can only be explained by his intelligence roots. However, this is more than the story of one man or his family. There is a long-term strategic plan to recruit promising candidates into intelligence and steer these individuals and their families into positions of influence and power. Consider that it is now declassified former British Prime Minister Tony Blair was recruited into MI5 before becoming a labour leader, or that George H. W. Bush not only became CIA director in 1976 but had a deeper past in the organization. While we may never know many pertinent details about these matters, one thing that is certain is that the American people have never been told the truth about who holds the real power, nor who this president– and likely many others– really is. Thus, we urge everyone to read Wayne Madsen’s deep report and seek the truth for yourself.

EPA May Give 1st Approval of Nanosilver for Fabrics
Andrew Schneider

Nanotech socks like these could soon receive tentative EPA approval.
Senior Public Health Correspondent

(Aug. 18) -- A Swiss chemical producer may soon be the first company to receive approval by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to use nanosilver to make clothing smell better, stay cleaner and destroy germs.

However, health scientists say the nanoparticles will wash out with the rinse water and could cause unknown environmental and health problems downstream.

The EPA said that it may issue "conditional approval" to HeiQ Materials AG, a producer of nanosized additives, for the use of a nanosilver pesticide as a new active ingredient in fabrics.

Tapes Show Interrogation of 9-11 Terrorist in Secret Overseas Prison
Tuesday, August 17, 2010

By Adam Goldman and Matt Apuzzo, Associated Press

Washington (AP) - The CIA has tapes of 9/11 plotter Ramzi Binalshibh being interrogated in a secret overseas prison. Discovered under a desk, the recordings could provide an unparalleled look at how foreign governments aided the U.S. in holding and questioning suspected terrorists.

The two videotapes and one audiotape are believed to be the only remaining recordings made within the clandestine prison system.

The tapes depict Binalshibh's interrogation sessions at a Moroccan-run facility the CIA used near Rabat in 2002, several current and former U.S. officials told The Associated Press. They spoke on the condition of anonymity because the recordings remain a closely guarded secret.

When the CIA destroyed its cache of 92 videos of two other al-Qaida operatives, Abu Zubaydah and Abd al-Nashiri, being waterboarded in 2005, officials believed they had wiped away all of the agency's interrogation footage. But in 2007, a staffer discovered a box tucked under a desk in the CIA's Counterterrorism Center and pulled out the Binalshibh tapes

“Surprisingly” Bad Economic News

August 16, 2010
 by Bob Livingston

Have you noticed how often the elitist “economists” in government, academia and the media are surprised by bad economic news?

They are constantly “surprised” by high unemployment numbers. They say the low manufacturing numbers were “unexpected.” They claim they didn’t “foresee” such a great trade imbalance.

When the Fed Open Market Committee met in June it said the economic recovery was “proceeding” and was likely to advance at a moderate pace. At the time they were talking of “tightening” monetary policy to fend off inflation.

Vice President Joe Biden has said we are in the “Summer of Recovery.” President Barack Obama has been saying his policies have “pulled us back from the brink of another Great Depression.” As recently as Aug. 2, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, in an op-ed piece for The New York Times, wrote an uplifting column entitled “Welcome to the Recovery.” And he wasn’t being facetious.

Inflationary Depression Forecast Revisited...We are Halfway there
By Paul Mladjenovic, CFP

Going back a few years ago, I made a forecast that America would be heading toward an inflationary depression. I made that forecast during 2007 and early 2008 when the federal government’s policies were very bad.

Today in 2010, the federal government has replaced the bad policies of a few years ago with much, much worse policies today. It is mind-boggling how bad these policies are and it is astonishing that most politicians and many economists don’t see the obvious dangers.

A forecast of an inflationary depression is actually two forecasts since a “depression” and “inflation” are technically two separate events. Therefore, I have to make clear that we are talking about two separate forecasts.

It is an old saying that the “road to hell is paved with good intentions”. Well, in recent years, that road has been changed to a super-highway! America was put on that super-highway a few years ago and right now we are traveling at break-neck speed toward the financial abyss.


I believe that my forecast of a “depression” is accomplished. If you think that our experience of 2008-2009 was a garden-variety recession, I would ask you to re-consider that. The trillion-dollar spending policies enacted during the late Bush yeas and now the Obama years are extraordinarily dangerous. The federal government (and the state & local governments, too) are spending beyond our means as well as theirs. Bankruptcies, foreclosures, business contraction and unemployment are certainly at depression-level. Talk of a recovery is wishful thinking since the effects of still more bad policies are on the horizon. Look at what we have right now:

1. Unemployment is at 17%. I am not talking about the much reported yet highly inaccurate “official unemployment rate” which is a sham; I am talking about what is called the “U-6” employment rate that the Bureau of Labor Statistics compiles. It is a much less reported yet more accurate measure of unemployment. This statistic includes those counted in the “official unemployment rate” and adds in those that dropped out of the job search; the so-called “discouraged” unemployed. U-6 also includes those that are “under-employed” which means those that want full employment but have had to settle for part-time employment.

2. Foreclosures are at all-time highs.

3. Bankruptcies are at all-time highs.

4. Personal debt is still at record levels.

5. Government debt is at a mind-boggling all-time high and still soaring.

Then couple the above list with what is coming:

1. The tax-cuts enacted in the past decade are set to expire by January 2011. If this goes as planned, the effect is a tax increase that would deliver a body-blow to an already weak economy. A tax increase is nothing more than money taken by force by the government from the private economy. Basically that would mean less income and less invest-able capital for the private sector as the government forcibly siphons these resources and redirects it to a bureaucracy that is already the biggest in American history.

2. Congress and the president’s economic team have made noise about a “Value-Added-Tax” which is dumb during good economic times and quite stupid during bad economic times. Even the name is idiotic since taxes don’t add “value”…it merely increases the price or cost of that particular product or service.

3. The same folks are still considering pushing through what is called “Cap-and-Trade” legislation that would raise energy costs greatly since the legislation is nothing more than a huge hidden tax on energy usage. This legislation would do little (nothing?) for the environment but it would do much harm to our economy.

Therefore, consider the depression here and now. If taxes, regulations and other burdens and risks are not decreased immediately and substantially, then this depression will continue.


Some readers have asked about the prospects for inflation. I am on record that I think that inflation is not an “if” but a “when”. As the federal reserve keeps creating trillions of dollars out of thin air, there will be consequences. Technically, they are indulging in “monetary inflation” but of course most people think of inflation by its symptom which is “price inflation”. Since many observers don’t see price inflation, they assume that deflation is winning the day and will be here for the foreseeable future. This is wrong.

If you have read my prior essays on inflation, I point out that inflation will become evident when two conditions occur:

1. The excessive creation of money (again, this is “monetary inflation”)

2. …When this money circulates through the economy (also referred to as “velocity”)

If the government creates trillions of dollars and these dollars do not circulate, then velocity will not occur. But just keep in mind that “velocity” occurs where there is DEMAND. This is a key reason why I am a long-term bull on commodities in general and “human need” commodities in particular. I believe that this is such an important consideration for investors that I even did a national seminar on commodities investing.

There are many areas where there is simply no substantial demand (such as housing and autos). Money will not flow there in this economic environment. However, money does flow to areas of “human need”.

For example, a recent report has shown that the price of wheat has gone up 71% during the past 12 months. I think that similar price movements (or higher!) are in store for many essentials. Commodities tied to “human need” will definitely see their prices continue to zig-zag upward.

I also believe that gold and other precious metals such as silver will continue their bull market. Why?

I consider gold and silver to be “human need” essentials in today’s economic environment. As inflation unfolds among essential commodities, people will need a “store of value” as the world’s major currencies keep on being over-produced. When people start to see that the dollars they hold (or other currency) start to lose value as the government over-produces it, they will then see that having cash is not a “safe harbor”; inflation will erode its value.

They will then seek to replace currencies that are “depreciating” or losing value and shifting their resources to that which holds value…gold and silver.

In fact, as people world-wide see the problems with fiat currencies (dollar, euro, etc.) and with paper assets (stocks, bonds, etc.), they will migrate into those things that will hold value or appreciate over time. The flight will be from “paper” to “stuff”. “Stuff” like precious metals, food, water and other essentials.


The corollary to that (and this goes back to my forecast) is this…


We have a huge world population and their needs will be addressed. When you couple this demand with expanding money supplies across the globe, rising prices will be the result.

The stage is being set for historic price inflation…in those commodities that are “essential”. Investors need to prepare.

Investors can learn about investing in human need from Paul Mladjenovic’s audio seminar “Cash in on the Commodities Super Bull Market”. He is the author of Stock Investing for Dummies and you can get his free financial newsletter, the Prosperity Alert at

Tea Partiers Rally on Arizona Border With Mexico

Aug. 15: From left; Steven Nanatovich, Jennifer Nanatovich, 7, Alexa Nanatovich, and Russell Nanatovich look at the flags on the Arizona-Mexico border wall in Hereford, Ariz.
HEREFORD, Arizona -- Tea party activists supporting Arizona's illegal immigration law were rallying along a remote stretch of the Arizona-Mexico border about 70 miles west of Nogales in support of the law that a judge put mostly on hold last month.

The United Border Coalition, which is an event organized by United We Stand for Americans and the Tea Party Caucus as well as more than a dozen other groups, held the rally near a stretch of border wall made of 15-foot steel posts set closely together to prevent people from crossing the border.

Demonstrators attached hundreds of U.S. flags with messages about curbing illegal immigration to the posts and chanted, "U-S-A," after a handful of spectators gathered on the Mexico side of the border.

One of the messages posted on the border wall read, "Mister President ... Secure This Border For America."

China Inches Up on U.S., Now World's No. 2 Economy

Published August 16, 2010

Associated Press

TOKYO -- Japan lost its place as the world's No. 2 economy to China in the second quarter as receding global growth sapped momentum and stunted a shaky recovery.

Gross domestic product grew at an annualized rate of just 0.4 percent, the government said Monday, far below the annualized 4.4 percent expansion in the first quarter and adding to evidence the global recovery is facing strong headwinds.

The figures underscore China's emergence as an economic power that is changing everything from the global balance of military and financial power to how cars are designed. It is already the biggest exporter, auto buyer and steel producer, and its global influence is expanding.

China has been a major force behind the world's emergence from deep recession, delivering much-needed juice to the U.S., Japan and Europe. Tokyo's latest numbers, however, suggest that Chinese demand alone may not be enough for Japan or other economic giants.

"Japan is the canary in the goldmine because it depends very much on demand in Asia and China, and this demand is cooling quite a bit," said Martin Schulz, senior economist at Fujitsu Research Institute in Tokyo. "This is a warning sign for all major economies that just focusing on overseas demand won't be sufficient."

Is an International Financial Conspiracy Driving World Events?

Richard C. Cook

Global Research

August 15, 2010
David Rockefeller at Harvard in 2006.

“They make a desolation and call it peace.” -Tacitus

Was Alan Greenspan really as dumb as he looks in creating the late housing bubble that threatens to bring the entire Western debt-based economy crashing down?

Was something as easy to foresee as this really the trigger for a meltdown that could destroy the world’s financial system? Or was it done, perhaps, “accidentally on purpose”?

And if so, why?

Let’s turn to the U.S. personage that conspiracy theorists most often mention as being at the epicenter of whatever elite plan is reputed to exist. This would be David Rockefeller, the 92-year-old multibillionaire godfather of the world’s financial elite.

The lengthy Wikipedia article on Rockefeller provides the following version of a celebrated statement he allegedly made in an opening speech at the Bilderberg conference in Baden-Baden, Germany, in June 1991:

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during these years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government which will never again know war, but only peace and prosperity for the whole of humanity. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in the past centuries.”

This speech was made 17 years ago. It came at the beginning in the U.S. of the Bill Clinton administration. Rockefeller speaks of an “us.” This “us,” he says, has been having meetings for almost 40 years. If you add the 17 years since he gave the speech it was 57 years ago—two full generations.
