UN investigator 'shocked' by scale of destruction in Gaza

The head of a United Nations team investigating possible war crimes by Israel and Hamas during the Gaza war said Thursday he had been shocked by the scale of the destruction in the Palestinian areas.

South African Judge Richard Goldstone spoke at the end of a four-day fact-finding trip to Gaza, during which his 15-member team interviewed dozens of witnesses and visited sites damaged in Israel's three-week offensive against Hamas that ended Jan. 18.

His team hoped to visit Israel and the West Bank as well, but Israel has refused to cooperate, citing alleged anti-Israel bias by the U.N. Human Rights Council, the probe's sponsor.

YouTube Blacklisting WRH Referral Stats?

I noticed this omission on YouTube Friday morning at appx 10:00 a.m. ET. On Thursday 6/4, it appears a WRH member posted a link to a YouTube video: Congresswoman Kaptur Grills Federal Reserve Chair Bernanke at 12:18 Hawaiin time (I assume the time zone). So a day later (at the very least 16 hours) YouTube shows zero referrals from Mike Rivero’s site?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is actually happening is that members who post YouTube links to WRH are leaving the referral URLS from other sites embedded in them, so the other sites get the credit.

Obama's Speech to Muslims: More Humility and Statesmanship in Two Hours than in the Eight Years of Bushevik Arrogance and Bullying

President Barack Obama traveled to Egypt Thursday and delivered an historic speech to the Muslim world at the University of Cairo. For nearly two hours Obama spoke of the region's various unsolved crises--such as U.S./Islamic relations, the Arab/Israeli conflict, and terrorism--while extending an olive branch to both America's friends and enemies alike. It was a brilliant dissertation on accepting difference, overcoming challenges and achieving a lasting peace. And it was a much welcome departure from the Bush administration's eight years of reckless cowboy arrogance and bullying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

... except for the obvious pandering to Israel regarding Palestine.

Large Hadron Collider to run through the year in Higgs boson race

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will start smashing its first protons in October and run through the winter to keep it ahead in the international race to find the elusive “God particle”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The world's most expensive church!

Setting aside the growing body of evidence that the Big Bang theory is merely religion dressed up to look like science (not unlike how "Intelligent design" is creationism disguised as science), there is a serious flaw in the thinking behind this multi-billion dollar religious shrine.

Let us suppose that in the intense energetic fury of the particle accelerators that something matching the predicted Higgs Boson pops out either at CERN or Fermilab.

What that actually proves is that it is possible for such a particle to be created at those high energies. It does not prove that such energies existed at any point in the past (the Big Bang), or that the particle in question ever existed before its creation in the particle accelerator.

Are they "finding" a Higgs Boson, or creating one?

When you’ve got something that’s composed of high fructose, spun through forced hot air turbines into wall board insulation, you’ve got Twitter. I’ve seen one functioning value which Twitter provides. Twitter allows you to determine the useful value of any person in your life simply by discovering whether they use it or not.

Wiley Drake Prays For Obama's Death

A former Southern Baptist Convention officer who on June 2 called the death of abortion provider George Tiller an answer to prayer said later in the day he is also praying "imprecatory prayer" against President Obama.

Wiley Drake, pastor of First Southern Baptist Church in Buena Park, Calif., and former running mate of American Independent Party presidential candidate Alan Keyes, said June 2 on Fox News Radio he didn't understand why people were upset with his comments quoted by Associated Baptist Press from a webcast of his daily radio talk show.

"Imprecatory prayer is agreeing with God, and if people don't like that, they need to talk to God," Drake told syndicated talk-show host Alan Colmes. "God said it, I didn't. I was just agreeing with God."

Some Colleges Bar Even Talking About Right to Bear Arms, Gun Advocates Say

The First Amendment guarantees Americans the right to free speech. The Second Amendment guarantees the right to possess firearms. Now the first two clauses in the Bill of Rights have come together in an ongoing debate over the right of college students to advocate that they be allowed to carry guns on campus.

The bloody massacres at Virginia Tech and Columbine High School, as well as smaller campus shootings across the country in the last decade, have fomented a lively debate over whether citizens should be allowed to carry concealed weapons to defend themselves on campus.

Will Buchenwald Persuade Obama to Pursue Justice for the Tortured?

Obama in Buchenwald: "We are here today because this work is not yet finished."

Damned right we're not finished. So much of what Obama said seemed to apply to America's shameful prisons-- Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.

Obama said, "Hatred that degrades its victims and diminishes us all."
As does the hatred and degradation of torture-- of rape, forced nudity, distrespect of the koran...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama continues to pander to the horrors of the 20th century, while ignoring the horrors of the 21st century.

Obama cannot prosecute the American torturers without reminding everyone that the entire war in Iraq was ignited with a single confession extracted under torture.

These bankers were afraid that the United States if they remained as one block would attain economic and financial independence which would upset their financial domination over the world."

Gross Fraud At Nuremberg - An Ugly History

These paragraphs are, of course, only a very brief overview of the innumerable deficiencies of the 'evidence' at Nuremberg. The overwhelming Jewish presence behind the scenes as interrogators, jailers and torturers is covered elsewhere in Irving's excellent, but far from complete, study. The sampling of techniques employed, however, is more than sufficient to demonstrate that truth was never the objective of the orchestrators of the trial. That is the key point in evaluating Nuremberg. All the evidence, real and faked at the great trial, was evidence in pursuit of a pre-determined verdict.

As the Dollar Falls Off the Cliff ...

Economic news remains focused on banks and housing, while the threat mounts to the US dollar from massive federal budget deficits in fiscal years 2009 and 2010.

Earlier this year the dollar’s exchange value rose against currencies, such as the euro. UK pound, and Swiss franc, against which the dollar had been steadily falling. The dollar’s rise made US policymakers complacent, even though the rise was due to flight from over-leveraged financial instruments and falling stock markets into “safe” Treasuries. Since April, however, the dollar has steadily declined as investors and foreign central banks realize that the massive federal budget deficits are likely to be monetized.

What happens to the dollar will be the key driver of what lies ahead. The likely scenario could be nasty.

The Wages of Hubris and Vengeance

Israel is in the grip of a kind of collective schizophrenia. Not only its governors but the majority of its Jewish population have delusions of both grandeur and persecution, making for a distortion of reality and inconsistent behavior. Israeli Jews see and represent themselves as a chosen people and part of a superior Western civilization. They consider themselves more cerebral, reasonable, moral, and dynamic than Arabs and Muslims generally, and Palestinians in particular. At the same time they feel themselves to be the ultimate incarnation of the Jewish people’s unique suffering through the ages, still subject to constant insecurity and defenselessness in the face of ever-threatening extreme and unmerited punishment.

Boom Times Are Back, Outside the U.S.

It is becoming increasingly clear that the story of the global economy is a tale of two worlds. In one, there is only gloom and doom, and in the other there is light and hope. In the traditional bastions of wealth and power—America, Europe and Japan—it is difficult to find much good news.

But there is a new world out there—China, India, Indonesia, Brazil—in which economic growth continues to power ahead, in which governments are not buried under a mountain of debt and in which citizens remain remarkably optimistic about their future.

So now, are Israeli MKs threatening President Obama and the US with another staged terror event as "payback" for what President Obama has said in Cairo?!?!?

Ruling allowing Taser use to get DNA may be nation’s first

Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Sperrazza decided that the DNA sample obtained Sept. 29 from Ryan S. Smith of Niagara Falls — which ties him to a shooting and a gas station robbery— is legally valid and can be used at his trial.

He already had given a sample, a swab of the inside of his cheek, without protest the previous month. But police sent it to the wrong lab, where it was opened and spoiled. Prosecutors who had obtained a court order for the first sample went back to Sperrazza, who signed another order without consulting the defense.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If your head isn't spinning around like that of Linda Blair's in "The Exorcist" upon reading this, you've missed one of the most important aspects of this ruling.

Now, New York State police have carte blanche to use a stun-gun as a DNA gathering device, no matter what the circumstances.

And that statement"It is legally permissible for police to zap a suspect with a Taser to obtain a DNA sample, as long as it’s not done “maliciously, or to an excessive extent, or with resulting injury,” absolutely won't work in the real world, when cops have been legal permission to use a stun-gun for this purpose.

But what if that person zapped is the wrong guy, and could conceivably be killed or maimed for life by a 50,000 volt stun-gun?

The New York State Police has just been held harmless and indemnified against any responsibility when an incident like this happens, courtesy of this insane ruling.

And folks, trust me: it will happen.

US does not want to keep troops in Afghanistan: Obama

"Make no mistake: we do not want to keep our troops in Afghanistan. We seek no military bases there," he told an audience at Cairo University.

He added the US plans to invest 1.5 billion dollars each year over the next five years in construction and aid money to the displaced in Pakistan, and 2.8 billion dollars to help Afghans develop their economy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Ahem) a small memo to President Obama:

You've just made the statement:

"Make no mistake: we do not want to keep our troops in Afghanistan. We seek no military bases there,"

If this is true, then what the Sam Hill is going on with the massive construction project at Camp Leatherneck?!?

As reported inhttp://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5iQsdQAuKzZl3hMgVzG60jVJVgRiQ,
7 May, 2009:

"It's been real busy," said Captain Jeff Boroway from the 25th Naval Construction regiment.

"This place was desert at the end of January. I mean nothing. And now you've got a 443-acre (179-hectare) secure facility," he told reporters.

They are also expanding another US base in the southern city of Kandahar."

Forgive me, Mr. President, but the establishment of 443 acre "secure facility" sounds like the absolute opposite of "we seek no military bases there" to intelligent Afghans.

And that statement about "aid"; if the current plan to pour 4.3 billion billion dollars into the Afghan and Pakistani infrastructure does as well as has previous aid efforts, we might as well just close up shop and go home.

As reported in

http://www.salon.com/opinion/feature/2009/01/15/afghanistan_jones/
in the article by An Jones in January of 2009, she reported:

"Whatever the truth of the matter, in the long run, it's not soldiers but services that count -- electricity, water, food, healthcare, justice and jobs. Had the U.S. delivered the promised services on time, while employing Afghans to rebuild their own country according to their own priorities and under the supervision of their own government -- a mini-Marshall Plan -- they would now be in charge of their own defense. The forces on the other side, which we loosely call the Taliban, would also have lost much of their grounds for complaint."

"Instead, the Bush administration perpetrated a scam. It used the system it set up to dispense reconstruction aid to both the countries it "liberated," Afghanistan and Iraq, to transfer American taxpayer dollars from the national treasury directly into the pockets of private war profiteers. Think of Halliburton, Bechtel and Blackwater in Iraq; Louis Berger Group, Bearing Point and DynCorp International in Afghanistan. They're all in it together"

Unless President Obama is actually able to hold collective corporate feet to the fire in terms of true accountability, the relief/reconstruction effort in Afghanistan is just as doomed to failure as were the relief/reconstruction efforts in Iraq.

And that's pretty ugly.

The wife of Jonathan Pollard read a letter to American President Barack Obama appealing for her husband's release during a protest rally opposite the U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem Wednesday night.

“Mr. Obama, my husband Jonathan Pollard has now served more than six times the usual sentence for the offense he committed," Esther Pollard said. "After more than two decades of the harshest afflictions in prison, including seven years in solitary confinement, it is time to release him, before it is too late for America to make amends before the Almighty G-d of Israel.

In Israel, Obama is accused of 'anti-Semitism'

Knesset (parliament) member Yaakov Katz, head of the National Union party, said Wednesday that US President Barack Obama's repeated calls for halting the expansion of Jewish settlements in the West Bank is "nothing less than anti-Semitism," Israel's Arutz Sheva reported.

He also accused the White House of following the path of his predecessors in stunting the growth of the population of Jewish people in the West Bank.

Katz says calling on Tel Aviv to freeze settlement activities means denying the Jewish people the right to give birth.

Short Circuiting The Scientific Process - A Serious Problem In The Climate Science Community

How the Vatican sold its soul

The Vatican appears to have an enduring vocation for Italian political and financial scandal. Secrecy and intrigue were the order of the day when American archbishop Paul Marcinkus held sway in the Bastion of Nicholas V, the medieval tower housing the Institute for the Works of Religion (IOR), the Vatican's central bank.

The requirements of a clandestine global struggle against atheist communism may explain the choice of business partners such as Michele Sindona and Roberto Calvi, whose mafia links and ruinous bankruptcies brought lasting discredit on the Catholic church three decades ago.

The OTHER Reason for the American Revolution

When he arrived, he was surprised to find rampant unemployment and poverty among the British working classes… Franklin was then asked how the American colonies managed to collect enough money to support their poor houses. He reportedly replied:

“We have no poor houses in the Colonies; and if we had some, there would be nobody to put in them, since there is, in the Colonies, not a single unemployed person, neither beggars nor tramps.”

In 1764, the Bank of England used its influence on Parliament to get a Currency Act passed that made it illegal for any of the colonies to print their own money. The colonists were forced to pay all future taxes to Britain in silver or gold. Anyone lacking in those precious metals had to borrow them at interest from the banks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This brings us back to the editorial in the London Times written in response to Abraham Lincoln's issuance of the greenback notes.

“If that mischievous financial policy, which had its origin in the North American Republic, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without a debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and the wealth of all coun­tries will go to North America.

Clemson Official Admits to Manipulating its U.S. News Ranking

A presentation by Catherine Watt, the former institutional researcher and now a staff member at Clemson University, laid bare in a way that is usually left to the imagination the steps that Clemson has (rather brazenly) taken since 2001 to move from 38th to 22nd in U.S. News's ranking of public research universities. ...

And to actual gasps from some members of the audience, Watt said that Clemson officials, in filling out the reputational survey form for presidents, rate "all programs other than Clemson below average," to make the university look better. "And I'm confident my president is not the only one who does that," Watt said. ..."We have walked the fine line between illegal, unethical, and really interesting.”

Chrysler dealers question franchise terminations

A parade of Chrysler dealers slated to lose their franchises took the stand Thursday in the automaker's bankruptcy protection case, one choking back tears, as they touted their sales and service records and questioned how they were chosen for termination.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because Chrysler has decided it can make more profits by driving the dealers out of business and selling direct to the consumers?

Windows XP cash machines can steal your PIN

The Trustwave SpiderLabs, an outfit that deals with everything from ethical hacking through to incident response and security forensics, is warning that the bank cash machine network is at risk from a malware attack that collects PIN numbers.

The SpiderLabs team reports that it has been able to perform an analysis of the malware, which had been discovered on compromised East European cash machines running Windows XP.

The malware was able to capture the magnetic stripe data from the private memory space of transaction-processing applications that were installed on these compromised ATMs, along with PIN codes for good measure.

Police target 'innocent' youths for arrest in bid to increase DNA samples on database

Youths with no criminal record are being targeted for arrest so their DNA can be logged on a database in the event they commit crimes.

A total of 386 under-18s had their DNA taken and stored by police last year in one north London borough - more than one a day.

An experience officer working for the Metropolitan Police admitted the DNA was being stored as part of a 'long-term crime prevention strategy'.

Plan to Help Banks Clear Their Books Is Halted

Many banks have refused to sell their loans, in part because doing so would force them to mark down the value of those loans and book big losses. Even though the government was prepared to prop up prices by offering cheap financing to investors, the prices that banks were demanding have remained far higher than the prices that investors were willing to pay.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the problem with Mark to Market. The banks get to decide for themselves what the assets are worth and appraise them at a high value to make their books look profitable on paper. Then the US Government comes in with YOUR tax money to entice investors to buy the toxic assets at the inflated prices, but investors know that over-valued assets are a ticking time bomb that will explode the first time any single player decides they have to liquidate and the real value of the assets becomes obvious, triggering a panic sale.

So, after saddling you with $100,000 in tax debt for the bailouts, the government is essentially admitting what I have been telling you all along. There is no real fix; it's all bookkeeping tricks and shifting the laws around.

And none of it will work.

Brown 'sweats bullets' ahead of elections

The political life of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is hanging by a thread as European and local elections open in the United Kingdom.

More than 2,300 seats are in play in the local council's election that began Thursday morning.

The result could lead to Brown being ousted by his own party, as the Labour party took a sudden nosedive in recent opinion poll ratings after public outrage over an expenses scandal.

Labour Parliamentarians have long been unhappy with Brown's performance, blaming him for the crippling credit crunch, the flaws in the tax system and the budget crisis.

A letter is currently being circulated by Labour back benchers to request the Prime Minister's early resignation before the general elections.

Are Banks Getting Ready To Flood The Market With Houses?

No one really knows how many houses are owned by banks. Banks often buy homes in foreclosure to limit losses, hoping that they'll be able to turn the house around for a profit later. But after months and months of foreclosures, banks may now be preparing to sell the houses they've been buying. Anecdotal evidence from Las Vegas, one of the foreclosure capitals of the US, suggests that we're about to see a release of bank-owned home inventory into the market.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

... which will crush housing prices, which will put more home owners into negative equity, which will result in more "walk-aways."

THERE IS ONE AND ONLY ONE WAY TO SAVE THE ECONOMY AND THAT IS TO BRING BACK MANUFACTURING AND THE HIGH-PAYING JOBS THAT GO WITH IT.

Nobody is asking for socialism or communism. Nobody wants charity.

We just want back what we had before, what we built before, what we EARNED before ... before the government and corporations sent it all away to other countries to "maximize" their profits.

Popular Rabbi’s Comments on Treatment of Arabs Show a Different Side of Chabad

But Friedman, who today travels the country as a Chabad speaker, showed a less warm and cuddly side when he was asked how he thinks Jews should treat their Arab neighbors.

“The only way to fight a moral war is the Jewish way: Destroy their holy sites. Kill men, women and children (and cattle),” Friedman wrote in response to the question posed by Moment Magazine for its “Ask the Rabbis” feature.

Friedman argued that if Israel followed this wisdom, there would be “no civilian casualties, no children in the line of fire, no false sense of righteousness, in fact, no war.”

“I don’t believe in Western morality,” he wrote. “Living by Torah values will make us a light unto the nations who suffer defeat because of a disastrous morality of human invention.”

Climate Change: Science Manipulated

* 1. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) wants to claim that the global average temperature has unexpectedly and abruptly increased during the 20th century after a gradual cooling from the year 1000, and that this unexpected increase of the temperature is mostly man-made-the greenhouse effect of CO2.

* 2. For their purpose, the IPCC ignored the fact that the Earth went through a cold period called "the Little Ice Age" from 1400 to 1800.

Time to Look Past Obama’s Words and Face-up to His Actions

Perhaps the worst news is the relative silence of the peace movement. Yes, some are criticizing, but some are still holding out hope that Obama is different. Others of us pointed out that buried beneath the peace-friendly rhetoric during the campaign were Obama’s promises of escalation. Now, more and more are seeing he meant what he said when it came to his support for a hawkish U.S. foreign policy.

Disease hype

Drug companies are Publicly traded companies which means their sole purpose is to increase profit margins. The only way they can do that is to sell more drugs. Stop and ask yourself something. Isn't it odd that prescription drugs are advertised on TV? Isn't a doctor supposed to say if you need drugs? So why are they advertizing? A doctor is trained to prescribe a drug for you based on what you need and is supposed to tell you and which one(s) to take. But people are going to doctors saying that they want 'such and such'. If an honest doctor, who is not manipulated by kickbacks from pharmaceutical companies, does not comply, then the patient can ask for another doctor who will give them what they want.
