Unbeknownst to the mainstream media and the American people, the GOP majority in Congress passed a resolution that prohibits anyone other than the speaker of the House to call a vote to restore the Government shutdown. In effect, this sneaky little trick subverts democracy and creates a totalitarian state.

See the video where a Congressman confronts the powers that be over this slimy rule change...

Katy Perry Fights Back Against TV Censorship

[Music]
In the wake of the Children's Television Workshop axing a segment where pop singer Katy Perry performed her song on Sesame Street, fearing the singer was too exposed (apparently children are only allowed to see cleavage as a road map to mom's refreshment station), Perry has gone on the offensive in a big way. First showing up on Saturday Night Live in a provacative outfit made out of an Elmo shirt, she's totally left the boat with her latest video... I smell some lawsuits from CTW on this one despite the fact that it's an obvious parody... and completely hilarious!

Here's another story you won't find hitting many of the airwaves. The major car manufacturers have implemented a new standard with respect to the diagnostic data new cars generate. What this means is that more and more small, independent, less-expensive car repair places cannot work on peoples' cars because they can't decode the diagnostic messages. There's a battle now to change this so anyone can repair their own cars, and not just the elite dealers who can understand the codes.

Businessmen Caught With $134B of US Bonds at Italy/Swiss Border

Posted by Pile (14812 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


Italy's financial police (Guardia italiana di Finanza) has seized US bonds worth US 134.5 billion from two Japanese nationals at Chiasso (40 km from Milan) on the border between Italy and Switzerland. They include 249 US Federal Reserve bonds worth US$ 500 million each, plus ten Kennedy bonds and other US government securities worth a billion dollar each.

So far, no American mainstream media has picked up on this pretty scandalous story. Is some government trying to liquidate their shares of T-bills? Or are they fake and this is the largest counterfeit operation ever?

Just when you think you've heard it all, a shocking story surfaces that most of the mainstream media has not reported. Would an American drug company, upon finding that a supply of blood-based drugs was tainted with the HIV virus, offload these drugs overseas in an attempt to make a profit? Foreign regulators that have allowed this to happen are in prison. Nobody in the United States seems to even know this happened!

So what happens when a drug company gets blood for its new hemophiliac medication from a prison in Arkansas? And who do they dump the tainted drugs off on? And who is accountable?

This counterrevolution began in the exact place which had slumbered during the all-out assault on our liberties and the Constitution itself.

A Florida-based Gulfstream II jet aircraft #N987SA crash-landed on September 24, 2007, after it ran out of fuel over Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. It had a cargo of several tons of cocaine on board. Now documents have turned up on both sides of the Atlantic that link this cocaine-smuggling Gulfstream II jet aircraft that crashed in Mexico to the CIA, who used it on at least 3 rendition flights from Europe and the USA to Guantanamo's infamous torture chambers between 2003 to 2005.

Monster.com Site Hacked; 1.6 Million Users Compromised

AT&T Censors Anti-Bush Comments From Pearl Jam Concert Broadcast

Posted by Pile (7388 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


According to Pearl Jam's website, portions of the band's Sunday night set at Lollapalooza were missing from the AT&T Blue Room live webcast. Fans alerted the band to the missing material after the show. Reportedly absent from the webcast were segments of the band's performance of "Daughter," including the sung lines "George Bush, leave this world alone" and "George Bush find yourself another home."

Update: While AT&T claims the censorship was a "mistake", according to Wired's Listening Post, concerts streamed on the Blue Room by The Flaming Lips and the John Butler Trio have also been censored for political reasons. If true, this action coupled with past allegations aimed at AT&T suggests an unnerving pro-Bush political agenda from one of America's biggest telecoms.

Researchers working at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, have discovered that an existing drug called dichloroacetate (DCA) is effective in killing cancer cells, while leaving the host's healthy cells unharmed. DCA has already been used for years to treat metabolic disorders, and is known to be fairly safe. Sounds like great news; is it too good to be true? Why is the mainstream news media failing to report on this potential breakthrough? Perhaps because the drug companies cannot get a patent on the substance and milk consumers' every last drop of savings?

What is Tarot?

Posted by Oudler (4364 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]

[Entertainment]
Tarot (also known as Tarock, Tarokk, Taroky, Taroc, Tarok, Tarocchi and similar names) is a family of trick taking card games played with an enlarged deck of 78 cards which include an extra court card for each of the four regular suits, a permanent trump suit of 21 cards, and a kind of "wild card" called "the Fool" or "Excuse." Although seen primarily by many as a means of fortune telling or divination, the Tarot deck was created in northern Italy during the 15th century for playing card games. The notion of a trump suit which survives in such popular card games as Spades and Hearts originated with the game of Tarot.

The myth of Egyptian origins of Tarot, while once common, has long been debunked by later scholars. There is also no record of Tarot cards being used for the occult or divination prior to the 18th century. The Tarot card readings popular at Renaissance Fairs are a creative license taken with historical fact and should not be viewed as authentic. Contrary to popular belief, conventional playing cards were not derived from Tarot decks and the Fool is unrelated to the Joker of conventional playing cards. The Joker was created in the USA during the 19th century originally for the card game Euchre.

FBI agents trailed him to a mailbox and watched him post a powder-filled envelope, catching him in the act and charging him with the felony of sending threats by U.S. Mail.

Congress Raises Minimum Age of Soldiers to 42

How to address the growing problem: not enough people are signing up for the armed forces to keep waging this war in Iraq. Bonuses don't seem to be helping, and they've turned to keeping soldiers for extra tours of duty because they can't replace them. (Be All that You Can Be...for two or three times as long as you signed up for.)

But now Congress has solved the problem! Yes, it's raised the maximum age to serve in the U.S. Army yet again, this time to 42. For the first time, we can actually have a multi-generational army! Think of the morale boost of fathers and sons serving side-by-side on the battlefield! (And let's not forget those moms...the age raise applies to women soldiers, too!

European Journalists Reserve "Right of Blasphemy"

Ok, this is a great story, and it shows how much balls the Europeans have when it comes to freedom of speech and journalism. What's happened is that a Danish newspaper published a characature of Mohammed, the Muslim prophet. Well, Muslims all over the world were outraged and Danish reporters have had to go into hiding over death threats; countries like Saudi Arabia and others are initiating elaborate boycotts of anything and everything Danish as a result of the newspaper's action. Apparently, reproducing any imagine of Mohammed is some sort of grave sin.

However in protest of the Muslim upheval against Denmark, newspapers across Europe have shown the balls that are now non-existent in Western journalism to publish charactures of a variety of religious figures including Mohammed. Where's the American media in all of this? Probably checking with Federal Express, the CATO institute, and Chase Bank to find out what they should print.

Germany's Die Welt daily printed one of the drawings on its front page, arguing that a "right to blasphemy" was anchored in democratic freedoms.

I Can Ignore Torture Law, says Bush

When President Bush last week signed the bill outlawing the torture of detainees, he quietly reserved the right to bypass the law under his powers as commander in chief.

After approving the bill last Friday, Bush issued a "signing statement"--an official document in which a president lays out his interpretation of a new law--declaring that he will view the interrogation limits in the context of his broader powers to protect national security. This means Bush believes he can waive the restrictions, the White House and legal specialists said.

Oh, sure, pass your little anti-torture bill. I'm president[king/emperor for life/supreme leader], so it doesn't apply to me. Yes, I'm sure that's what the system of checks and balances written into the Constitution meant.

CBS/Infinity Radio has refused to air paid commercial announcements for an upcoming non-partisan symposium on terrorism, claiming "people might be too emotionally affected" by it.

"CBS/Infinity Radio joins Sinclair Broadcasting in refusing to air fact-based content about issues important to the country," said David Masak, the media production director for Peoples Truth Forum's symposium. "The facts of the threat we face might be disturbing, but that's the truth of the matter. Why CBS/Infinity wouldn't want to take this opportunity to share the facts with the American people, especially in light of the recent bombings in London, says a lot about CBS."


Or maybe is says more about the People's Truth Forum?

I don't know about you, but this set my BS Detector off, and I suspect CBS told the group to shove it when they found out the president of the People's Truth Forum was also the guy behind the bogus, muck-raking media bile, "Vietnam Vets For Truth" which was a wannabe "Swift Boat Veterans For Truth" PAC which manufactured a plethora of lies during the last presidential campaign, including allegations comparing Kerry to Nazi collaborators and the erroneous claim Kerry is considered a Communist hero to the North Vietnamese and helped them achieve victory.

Late Friday, June 24, is a perfect time to bury bad news in Washington, DC. That's when Mike Johanns, the United States Secretary of Agriculture held a news conference. He announced that a beef cow suspected last November to be positive with mad cow disease, and finally properly tested, was indeed positive. Even now the USDA is keeping secret which state the cow was from, but Texas has long been mentioned in media articles. The initially-botched finding of a second mad cow in the United States emphasizes the failure of the United States Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration to protect Americans from the deadly dementia called mad cow disease.

British: Let's Get This Straight On Terrorism and Lies

[Terroir-ism]
George Galloway is a member of Parliament for Bethnal Green and Bow and stands (falsely) accused by conservative US senators of taking bribes from Iraq in an oil-for-food scandal. His statement before the US Senate is a truly righteous, withering, and devastating critique of the US position in Iraq:

I told the world that Iraq, contrary to your claims did not have weapons of mass destruction.

I told the world, contrary to your claims, that Iraq had no connection to al-Qaeda.

I told the world, contrary to your claims, that Iraq had no connection to the atrocity on 9/11 2001.

I told the world, contrary to your claims, that the Iraqi people would resist a British and American invasion of their country and that the fall of Baghdad would not be the beginning of the end, but merely the end of the beginning.

Senator, in everything I said about Iraq, I turned out to be right and you turned out to be wrong and 100,000 people paid with their lives; 1600 of them American soldiers sent to their deaths on a pack of lies; 15,000 of them wounded, many of them disabled forever on a pack of lies.

The Downing Street Memo, recently leaked, reveals that President George W. Bush decided to overthrow Iraqi President Saddam Hussein in the summer 2002 and—determined to ensure that U.S. intelligence data supported his policies—"fixed" the intelligence and facts. Meanwhile the American press keeps this story low profile.

Just in case there was any doubt among the integrity or intent of the "save Terri" movement, the parents of Terri Schiavo have authorized a conservative direct-mailing firm to sell a list of their financial supporters, making it likely that thousands of strangers moved by her plight will receive a steady stream of solicitations from anti-abortion and conservative groups.

[Junk Food]
The World Health Organization said Friday that people should eat less food containing acrylamide, a chemical associated with fried foods that has caused cancer in laboratory rats.

WHO called on governments to urge the food industry to "lower significantly" the acrylamide content in foods such as french fries, potato chips, coffee and grain-based products including bread.

Bush Plants Gay Christian Prostitute In White House Press Corps

Posted by Pile (11231 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


Another big scandal that mainstream media will gloss over? How about the planting of a fake news reporter, from a fake news agency, in the White House Press Corps by the Bush administration? A paid operative, Bible-preaching Christian that's apparently into gay porn, that didn't even use his real name, but is associated with a number of right-wing propaganda operations!

As the plot thickens and internet cyber sleuths try to track down the "rats nest" of conservative schemers, hiding behind pseudonyms and dummy corporations, Some in Congress are requesting an immediate formal investigation.

UPDATE: Washington Post picks the story up from Bloggers. Score another for alterna-media doing the work of emaciated journalists. Another good expose can be found here.

I especially like the guy's interesting collection of domain names:
Thepeopleschurchdc.org
Dcbiblemarathon.org
Faithfullyspeaking.org
Theconservativeguy.com
Theconservativelegal.com
The-conservative-guy.com
conservative-guy.com
Hotmilitarystud.com
Militaryescorts.com
Militaryescortsm4m.com

Nothing like a Bible-preaching, conservative white house "journalist" who doubles as a pimp for gay military prostitutes.

UPDATE: Editor and Publisher has exposed the guy's real name as James Guckert and that WH Press Secretary knew about his deception.

UPDATE: More evidence of Guckert's lies to CNN and his gay prostitution site. He can't hide the fact that the site was archived and still viewable even though he took it down BUSTED!

UPDATE: Joe Conason asks Where is the 'Liberal Media' that should be covering this story?

UPDATE: Washington Post Continues the saga now that nude pictures are floating around.

UPDATE: Gannon may be the thread that unravels the CBS "memo-gate" scandal, and more Sex, Lies & Jeff Gannon.

U.S. Was "One Word Away" From Nuclear War

Posted by Pile (4632 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


Historians have long noted that the United States and the Soviet Union came within a whisper of nuclear war during the 13-day standoff after the United States discovered that Moscow had secretly installed nuclear missiles in Cuba. However, what was discovered last year (and apparently not widely covered in the media) was that Russia was in the process of approving a nuclear strike, but one of the three submarine commanders involved decided to not go along with the order.

The information came to light during an assembly of U.S. and Russian authorities for an event commemorating the 40th anniversary. Interesting that the mainstream media last year didn't think that coming so close to world destruction was newsworthy?

On HBO's Real Time (click read more for video clip) Senator Joe Biden claims the mainstream media is ignoring the serious implications of the Jeff Gannon (aka James Guckert) news story and keeping it from the people. In the meantime, the independent media who do have influence in small areas of the market are not letting go of this story until the mainstream media gives it the attention it deserves. Read more to see what Bill Maher thinks would have happened if this situation unfolded under any democratic administration.

Update: While American MSM is still ignoring the story, British press are all over it: "White House's loyal reporter once worked as gay hooker."
