FOLLOW THIS ISRAELI STORY CLOSELY, AND YOU WILL THEN BELIEVE ME ABOUT HOW ISRAEL LIES...WATCH THE LIES AS THIS PLAYS OUT...WATCH HOW THE PRO-ISRAELI U.S. "NEWS" COVERS THIS...will the United States of Israel do anything about this??? Obama gave Israel a good frowning...by issuing a statement of "mild concern".

Israel Defense Forces video of Flotilla attack, ship boarding, wounded activists



Israel Attacks Palestinian Aid Flotilla

Stop U.S. Support of Israeli Terrorism

Look at THIS bullshit: "Israel claimed it was defending itself, with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) saying the soldiers' lives were in danger after they were attacked with "severe physical violence, including live fire, weapons, knives and clubs." Soooooooo...........Israeli commandos forcefully board a ship of peaceful activists, and these activists attacked them??? Bullshit!!! Now do you see all the LIES in the news about Israel??? Keep this in mind going forward when you read anything about Israel in the "news".



So look at this: WHERE ARE THE ACTIVISTS ATTACKING ISRAELI COMMANDO'S WITH "SHARP OBJECTS"????????????????????



Israeli SPOKESLIAR says the activists had sharp metal objects!!!!! Now, are you going to believe Israel's "human shields" bullshit next time they kill civilians, now that you know they are LYING here??? Here's how you know this is a LIE: they couldn't have know the activists had "sharp metal objects" BEFORE they attacked them!!! So they attacked them...and THEN checked that they had "sharp metal objects"? And so what if they did? "Sharp metal objects" against the Israeli army? Maybe they were their kitchen knives or nothing even existed. I'm SURE (sarcastic) that a boat full of activists who told the world ahead of time what they were doing, had "evil plans" to attack the Israeli army with "sharp metal objects". I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH BULLSHIT IN MY LIFE!!!!! TO HAVE THE BALLS TO EVEN SAY THIS IS BREATHTAKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





Want to see Academy Award winning BULLSHIT?????????

WE'RE ALL TREE HUGGERS NOW

But SCHMEERIOUSLY folks, here's the LIVE webcam of the runaway oil spill ruining the United States of America, thanks to the Bush administration subversion of the federal agencies in charge of oversight and Obama then not immediately fixing it. No stories in the corporate owned (90% owned by conservatives) mainstream media, "The liberals were right", "The tree huggers were right", "The Republican subversion of government oversight cause this"...NOPE!!! Not even Obama said, "The liberals were right"!!! Because Obama isn't a liberal!!! He's not a socialist, he's not a communist, he's a corporatist just like George W. Bush. The Democrats aren't liberal, and the Republicans aren't conservative. Sarah Palin said, "We're all Arizonans now", about the unconstitutional racial profiling law in Arizona. Is anyone saying, more importantly, "WE'RE ALL TREE HUGGERS NOW"???

BP's "top kill" method of stopping the oil spill does NOT seem to be working...

The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico may have apocalyptic consequences, a report by the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources said.

(excellent comments below from BDBB commenters.....I sort of mushed them together and put them here. You know my blog policy: I STEAL everything and give NO CREDIT!!! TOUGH SHIT!!! I will give "attribution", if someone threatens me...and I take it somewhat seriously........)

New hole found in the riser tube. It seems the riser tube is becoming perforated like Swiss cheese. Is the inside wall wearing away to tissue paper thickness ? This is the first kink in the riser tube just above the BOP. How long will it be that the riser tube totally disintegrates and a full force/full pressure blowout of methane gas and heavy crude oil goes gushing into the Gulf of Mexico. If this happens - then we will see an ecological catastrophe beyond all comprehensions.

The hole farthest to the right, with the darkest material coming out, was barely noticeable when the first started showing this image. Now it matches the other holes in material coming out.

And that begs the question - what is coming out? Why is every stream a different color? WTF?

And why are they no longer showing video of the end of the tube where the inserted the new tube to collect the oil?

New under water plume found to the west - miles wide, but no measurements yet - too big to survey. This is addition to the 3,000 foot thick, 6 mile wide and 22 mile long plume of oil and dispersants discovered yesterday to the east of the leak.

La. scientist locates another vast oil plume in the gulf

Right now, at the live feed, that new hole appears to be leaking the most. In fact all of the leaks appear larger than the ones in the photo at Anony's link!

How much more can that pipe take before it blow completely?

After staring at the video for awhile I count 7 holes in the pipe. 2 are in the background, one behind the plume on the right and one behind the plume second from the right.

And I still want to know what is going on at the end of the pipe - that is all they showed us for the last week, now nothing.
Why did they not show us then the leak they are showing now?

Still hiding something???

The prices here in Sacramento have dropped $0.24 in the last couple of days. The cheapest stations were at $2.99 for regular last weekend, now at $2.75. Some stations had been as high as $3.19 for regular.

More evidence that oil prices are rigged (note how they are not going up on a major holiday - for the first time, ever):

Our present DA Jackie Musto Carroll (below left) and our present juvenile judge David Lupas (below right) were both DA's during the many years of the "Kids for Cash" scandal. They were named by the state panel as "passive prosecutors"....."prosecutors who stood by and abdicated their responsibility"....."whose silence, distraction or timid acquiescence allegedly abetted the scheme" while they were DA's during the many years of the "Kids for Cash" scandal.

Big Dan's Big News May 26, 2010...the RECKLESS LANDOWNERS

President Bush addresses the Marcellus Shale "RECKLESS LANDOWNERS"............


If your land is polluted due to the predatory Marcellus Drilling companies, you were "taken advantage of" by the big, bad corporations. If you lost your home to a predatory lender, you are a "RECKLESS HOMEOWNER" taking advantage of the poor lenders!!!

Remember when millions of Americans started losing their homes to foreclosure and Bush called the homeowners "Reckless Homeowners" taking advantage of lenders? When in reality it was lenders selling mortgages to people they knew couldn't pay them, and then the lenders packaged these loans into AAA rated investment funds and then bet against them to fail and made even MORE money??? Well, now there are cries of the Marcellus Shale drilling companies taking advantage of landowners and polluting their land and everyone's calling for a moratorium on Marcellus Shale drilling. Should we call these people 'RECKLESS LANDOWNERS' who took advantage of Marcellus Shale drilling companies??? I don't recall the SAME people calling for a moratorium on millions of Americans losing their homes to foreclosure due to predatory corporations. Funny, huh? I bet the "RECKLESS HOMEOWNERS" had a MUCH greater % of minorities (subprime mortgages) than the "RECKLESS LANDOWNERS". Is that the reason for the difference that the "RECKLESS HOMEOWNERS" were demonized, and the "RECKLESS LANDOWNERS" are "VICTIMS"? Another coincidence! I'm "playing the race card"!

The media treated the "RECKLESS HOMEOWNERS" and the "RECKLESS LANDOWNERS" as different as black and white, night and day. On the LEFT: "RECKLESS HOMEOWNERS" protesting. On the RIGHT: "RECKLESS LANDOWNERS" protesting:

BDBB FLASHBACK: Low Road to High Finance: McClatchy Expose Reveals How Goldman Sachs Sold Off Billions in Mortgage Securities After Anticipating Housing Collapse

A five-month investigation by McClatchy Newspapers has revealed that Goldman Sachs made secret bets against the housing market while simultaneously selling off billions in soon-to-be worthless securities. In 2006 and 2007, the bank reportedly peddled more than $40 billion in securities backed by at least 200,000 risky home mortgages, but never told the buyers it was secretly betting that a sharp drop in US housing prices would send the value of those securities plummeting. We speak to McClatchy reporter Greg Gordon.

Bush called the homeowners who are losing their homes: "Reckless Homeowners", remember? Well read this: whistleblowers at the lenders said they were appealing to their superiors to reject the shaky loans! So it wasn't the "reckless homeowners OR the government, it was the LENDERS!!! Then, the lenders knowingly packaged the risky mortgages they never should have given to people who shouldn't have qualified, into AAA rated bonds (they HID them) and sold them throughout the world...THEN BET that they would tank and made even MORE money THAT way, too!!! Why aren't these people in jail??? They caused the financial crisis!!!


AMY GOODMAN: Let’s turn to the issue of how Goldman Sachs stopped scrutinizing the loans it bought. This is a clip of a video report by Greg Gordon featuring two risk analysts contracted by Goldman.

GREG GORDON: Goldman and other Wall Street firms contracted with risk analysts, including Californians Irma Aninger and Melissa Toy, to review thousands of subprime mortgage files. Aninger said she was stunned as she saw from loan applications how much credit standards had deteriorated from 2004 through 2006.

IRMA ANINGER: A gardener making $10,000 a month, a checker at Wal-Mart making $5,000 a month. What else was there? Oh, they were ridiculous.

GREG GORDON: Aninger and Toy said they appealed to their superiors to reject shaky loans in which lenders had required no verification. (BD: I thought Bush, Republicans, and rightwingers said the lenders had their arms twisted by the government and the "reckless homeowners"!!!!!!)

MELISSA TOY: At times, I didn’t understand why we were even working, because they were overriding our decisions. Or if we question anything, if we tried to decline a loan, they were going beyond us and approving them.

IRMA ANINGER: The whole thing didn’t make any sense to me. That’s why I said earlier I didn’t even know why I was there, because the stuff was going to get pushed through anyway.

GREG GORDON: Yet, of all the Wall Street firms, Goldman was the only one that seemed to anticipate trouble ahead and safely exited the subprime market.





Goldman Sachs now taking away peoples' homes. The Beckers fight Wall St. bailed-out giant Goldman Sachs. They were fighting Goldman CEO Hank Paulson, who ironically became Bush's Treasury Secretary and started the taxpayer bailouts, of which Goldman Sachs made out like bandits.

RECKLESS HOMEOWNERS: THE BECKERS!!! Bush, Republicans, Rush Limbaugh and rightwinger media called people like the Beckers, "RECKLESS HOMEOWNERS".

Goldman spent years buying hundreds of thousands of subprime mortgages, many of them from some of the more unsavory lenders in the business, and packaging them into high-yield bonds. Now that the bottom has fallen out of that market, Goldman finds itself in a different role: as the big banker that takes homes away from folks such as the Beckers.

Big Dan's Big News May 25, 2010: WE'RE ALL LIBERALS NOW!!!!!!!!

Sarah Palin: We're all LIBERALS now !!!


Sarah Palin: With the BP oil spill and the Marcellus shale drilling, I'm realizing the liberal were right. These things affect ALL Americans, not just liberals. Fossil fuel corporations are ruining this country. They're putting in millions of dollars of propaganda to stop us from "going GREEN" and getting off fossil fuels. They're putting in millions of dollars of propaganda to deny Global Warming. This money was FREE to them from the Bush tax cuts, during a time of unfinanced wars in which we're spending 3 TRILLION dollars at a clip of $2.5 BILLION a week. Yet, Republicans don't want to cut federal spending on the WARS, but want to cut on social programs. The Republican philosophy of putting cronies in the EPA, FDA, MMS, and dept of interior to let corporations police themselves doesn't work. Everyone knew it wouldn't work. The chickens have come home to roost, so to speak. It's just that politicians got millions of dollars from the fossil fuel corporations to allow this to happen. They're really running our government. You don't know all of this, because conservatives OWN 90% of the so-called liberal media and are no longer doing their job, like with the financial crisis. Because of the media takeover, there appears to be more of us pro-corporate radicals than normal average Americans. That's not the case. We're an extreme minority, even though we're always on TV all the time, in newspapers, and on the radio. Who do you think OWNS the media??? When it comes to the environment, WE'RE ALL LIBERALS!!!!!!! But you wouldn't think it, watching the "news".........I'm just being honest with you for once.

NAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sarah Palin didn't say that, I made that up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She said "We're all Arizonans" because she's for unconstitutional racial profiling in Arizona!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Glenn Greenwald:There's a major political fraud underway: the GOP is once again donning their libertarian, limited-government masks in order to re-invent itself and, more important, to co-opt the energy and passion of the Ron-Paul-faction that spawned and sustains the "tea party" movement. The Party that spat contempt at Paul during the Bush years and was diametrically opposed to most of his platform now pretends to share his views. Standard-issue Republicans and Ron Paul libertarians are as incompatible as two factions can be -- recall that the most celebrated right-wing moment of the 2008 presidential campaign was when Rudy Giuliani all but accused Paul of being an America-hating Terrorist-lover for daring to suggest that America's conduct might contribute to Islamic radicalism -- yet the Republicans, aided by the media, are pretending that this is one unified, harmonious, "small government" political movement. The Right is petrified that this fraud will be exposed and is thus bending over backwards to sustain the myth......

Glenn Greenwald: The GOP's "small government" tea party fraud

I don't mean to scare you, but...........



I said this before and I'm the only one who seems to be saying this: if 95,000 barrels of oil per day are spilling into the Gulf of Mexico, and there are many oil rigs like this throughout the ocean...what was with that gas crisis of $5/gallon gas under Bush?????? Like George Carlin said, I have a problem....I THINK!!! And I don't believe a word the government or the "news" says!!!!!!!!!!

Recall that Cheney, GHW and Kenny Boy conspired to CAUSE A CRISIS sufficient to influence the American Electorate to demand alleged “energy experts” be installed in the White House on the heels of the FAKE California energy crisis that they created pre-2000 election – purposefully. Now they are at it again. In order to get the electorate to DEMAND a military leader in the White House, this Shadow Government must first create so much global chaos that the sheeple see no alternative but to install “an EXPERT.” Where such grand strategies are concerned, see the GHW Bush cabal.

Pa. GOOBERnatorial candidate Tom Corbett is a "SMart Feller"...who looks like Leslie Nielsen!!!


Pa. attorney general and GOOBERnatorial candidate Tom Corbett, who happens to be a dead ringer for funnyman actor Leslie Nielsen of Naked Gun, Hot Shot, and Airplane movies (among his many comedies), issued a subpoena to find out the identity of an anonymous TWITTER account. The subpoena was subsequenty revoked, but not before cries of civil libertarians and the ACLU (and Tea Partiers???) about big government trying to squelch blogs TWATTING criticism of politicians who could use their office to strong-arm them, in particular Tom Corbett's critics of "bonusgate" (EASY!!! TWATTING is the past tense of TWITTING, no emails please!!!). The owner of the TWITTER account is supposedly the owner of the blog CasablancaPA, a critic of "bonusgate" whose traffic has surely skyrocketed thanks to Tom Corbett. Alienating the blogosphere against you when you're running for government isn't a smart thing to do. ALL the blogosphere will band together as ONE when this happens against ANY politician from ANY party. Did Tom Corbett revoke the subpoena because of the backlash of the blogosphere? It's too late for him now to say he'd never subpoena the identity of an anonymous internet critic...he already did it! And be on the lookout for Tom Corbett either getting a new hairstyle or dying his hair so we stop saying he looks like Leslie Nielsen. You OWN that look NOW, buddy! It'll be WORSE if you change it! Alienating the blogosphere against you during a GOOBERnatorial campaign is like FARTING during an interview on TV!

McClatchey: BP's Low estimate (5,000 barrels a day...in reality it's 95,000 to 120,000) of oil spill's size could save BP millions in court



The British oil company BP has been forced to admit the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is far larger than the company initially said. On Thursday, BP said it’s now capturing 5,000 barrels of oil a day from the leaking pipe—the same amount it had previously said was leaking every day. BP has declined to estimate how much oil is still escaping, but scientists say BP is siphoning just a fraction of the total leak. Independent scientists say the leak could be as large as 95,000 barrels of oil per day. We speak to Alaskan marine biologist Rick Steiner, who has been spending time in the Gulf region.
