Big Dan's Big News August 24, 2008


Delaware Senator Joe Biden, Obama's VP pick, is a Scranton native!

With the announcement that he’s Illinois Sen. Barack Obama’s choice as Democratic vice presidential nominee, Delaware Sen. Joseph Biden is the first Northeast Pennsylvania native to become part of a major party presidential ticket.

About an hour after he addressed the nation as Illinois Sen. Barack Obama’s choice for vice president Saturday, Delaware Sen. Joseph R. Biden spoke to Times-Shamrock Newspapers in an exclusive interview. He talked over and over about how his Scranton roots prepared him for the role he’s about to play.

Democratic VP nominee still calls NEPA his home

The crowd at Cosgrove’s Clubhouse and Tavern on Green Ridge Street on Saturday was abuzz over the political future of a former Scranton resident (bd: Hey! We just ate there the other day!)

Anne Kearns’ late husband, Bob, always predicted that Sen. Joe Biden would pay their house at 2446 N. Washington Ave., Scranton, a visit. She was flabbergasted to see the senator walking up her driveway... ‘You know me???’

District Justice James Kennedy grew up 20 feet from Biden’s house and the two have been friends all their lives. Kennedy was at Cosgrove’s in Scranton’s Green Ridge section to watch his friend accept presumptive presidential nominee Obama’s invitation to run as his vice president.

VP pick no stranger to Hank’s Hoagies

Candidate says Scranton native Joe Biden has worked across the aisle for decades.

SS Liberty Set to Deliver Aid to Gaza; Mission Is a Tribute to Men Who Died in Israeli Attack Forty-one years after the American surveillance ship USS Liberty was napalmed, torpedoed and strafed by Israeli naval and air forces during the Six-Day War, another "Liberty" will be setting out from a Cyprus port in August to try to break through the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip.

U.S. WARNS ISRAEL. Joint Chiefs Chairman Says Another ‘Liberty’ Will Not Be Tolerated

June 8 marked the 40th anniversary of the attack on the USS Liberty by the air and naval forces of the state of Israel, resulting in the deaths of 34 American servicemen and a cover-up that has been maintained throughout the entire period.

In early July, America’s most senior military man flew to Tel Aviv to warn Israel not to try to pull another attack on an American ship similar to the USS Liberty incident in 1967. This was a deliberate attempt to sink the USS Liberty, blame it on Arabs and drag America into Israel’s war against its Arab neighbors.

Now, a month later, a civilian-manned ship christened the SS Liberty is getting ready to sail from Crete to Gaza in order to break Israel’s chokehold on the Palestinian people by bringing much-needed humanitarian supplies.

The endeavor, undertaken by the “Free Gaza” project headquartered in California, is manned by activists from 17 countries who range in their professions from doctors, engineers, business entrepreneurs and even a Roman Catholic nun. Another larger boat, called the SS Free Gaza, will be accompanying the SS Liberty. The Greek-flag bearing Liberty was scheduled to leave port in Cyprus the third week of August and sail 230 miles south to Gaza, considered to be the largest open-air prison in the world and home to over 1 million Palestinian Christians and Muslims who are not permitted to leave.

The ship, christened the SS Liberty in remembrance of the USS Liberty that was attacked by Israel during the Six Day War in 1967, was purchased by the Free Gaza movement with donations from members and supporters.

Persons who have endorsed the project include former President Jimmy Carter and Bishop Desmond Tutu.

Crew members include European parliamentarians and the sister-in-law of ex-British Prime Minister Tony Blair. In Israel, discussion of the USS Liberty is something of a forbidden topic and what little discussion does take place is typified by the “tough luck, get over it” attitude.

Israel threatened to “use force” in preventing the crew of the SS Liberty from bringing medical supplies to needy Palestinian children.


Democracy NOW! is on it! As usual!

JUAN GONZALEZ: Two converted fishing boats set sail from Cyprus today carrying forty-one activists and humanitarian workers who are part of the Free Gaza movement that is trying to break the Israeli blockade on the Gaza Strip.

The boats—the Liberty and Free Gaza—left the southern port of Larnaca this morning for the estimated thirty-hour trip. Israel has warned the activists to steer clear of Gaza, which it says is “the subject of an Israeli Navy advisory notice” that warns off foreign vessels from the “designated maritime zone.”

The Israeli foreign ministry said in an open letter to the participants, “We assume that your intentions are good but, in fact, the result of your action is that you are supporting the regime of a terrorist organization in Gaza.”

Who is Randy Scheunemann???

According to conservative commentator and former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan, Sen. John McCain's chief foreign policy adviser Randy Scheunemann is a 'dual loyalist,' 'neocon warmonger' involved in activities that 'none dare call treason.' (bd: he is a member of PNAC)

Scheunemann's former employer, Orion Strategies, is a lobbying firm with strong ties to Mikheil Saakashvili's administration in Georgia.

Since Georgia attempted to retake South Ossetia by force, triggering a sharp, violent rebuke by Russian forces, Sen. McCain has been by far the most strident advocate of US support for the former Soviet state.

Buchanan accuses 'McCain's neocon warmonger' of treason

And None Dare Call It Treason. by Patrick J. Buchanan Who is Randy Scheunemann?

Via TAPPED, John McCain’s foreign policy spokesman Randy Scheunemann recently gave an interview to Radio Free Europe about the growing tension between Russia and Georgia. Scheunemann took a hard line against Russia’s “undermining of Georgian sovereignty” by moving to establish direct ties with breakaway regions of Georgia.

Interestingly, neither Scheunemann nor the interviewer mentioned that Randy Scheunemann used to be employed as a lobbyist for the Georgian government. That’s right, the person who’s giving John McCain advice on Russia and Georgia was “registered with the U.S. Department of Justice as a foreign agent working on behalf of the government of Georgia.”

Scheunemann: Just Another Lobbyist On The Straight Talk Express


KABUL, Aug 22 (AFP) - An operation by international forces in western Afghanistan Friday killed 76 civilians, most of them women and children, the Afghan interior ministry said, announcing it had opened an investigation into the incident. Military spokesmen call it "collateral damage", which is sufficiently vague to cover all manner of atrocities. And I use the word "cover" advisedly.

U.S. murders 95 Afghan civilians (bd: That's MY headline!; here's the mainstream media's headline: "Afghan Leader Assails Airstrike He Says Killed 95")


Two sarcastically titled pieces cutting down the NIST's ridiculous explanation for WTC-7 falling down...and it took them 7 years to think of this bullshit: "a one-time miracle phenomenon"!!! LOL!!!

Watch out! According to NIST's miracle theory, your BBQ might experience "thermal expansion' of steel from a low-temperature fire"!!! So might car engines, airplane engines, and boat engines!!! And ovens!!! WHOOPS! It only happened once in history, though, on 9/11!

Government Urges Return to Stone Age

Stack Of Reports Proves It: Office Furnishings Killed Building 7

Assuming 9/11 was an inside job (let's just go with that for the sake of this point), then major networks would have been fed a "script" to follow, because major networks would need to be "on board" with an inside job. An inside job could ONLY happen if major networks were on board, knowingly or unknowingly or a mixture of both. But if there was a script, there would be a chance the script wouldn't match a LIVE broadcast of what was happening in reality...because a script was being followed! They weren't reporting what they were seeing! And if someone noticed the script not matching what's LIVE behind the reporter following the script, they'd cut off the live feed of the blatant error mismatch in a panic, because you never know how bad it could get! They cut off this scripted reporter reporting that the WTC-7 collapsed...before it collapsed...and then cut the LIVE feed before it actually collapsed! Now why would they cut the LIVE feed? Because the ULTIMATE screw-up would've been if the building collapsed on the LIVE feed, too! After they reported LIVE that it fell! Imagine if the feed wasn't cut and the building fell behind her as she was talking..."WHAT WAS THAT NOISE???" And if a script were fed to multiple networks, which it would have been, multiple networks would make the same exact mistake, which happened...I'm just sayin'!!!

More "official" 9/11 fairy tale stories coming unravelled!

Existentialist Cowboy:

According to official NTSB Flight Data, Flight 93 could not possibly have crashed in the field in PA. The flight data flatly contradicts Bush's official conspiracy theory of 911. Guess which one is lying!

I recently posted that NTSB data indicates Flight 77 never dropped below 273 feet! Therefore, Flight 77 could not have crashed into the Pentagon. The Pentagon is only 71 feet tall. Secondly, according to the black box data, Flight 77 could not have damaged the light poles. 77 was much too high (the poles are only 40 feet) and on the wrong trajectory.

Now, Damien, a regular contributor to this blog, has put together an exhaustive survey of equally disturbing holes in the official theories concerning Flight 93 which we have been expected to believe crashed in PA. Following is Damien's report --a damning critique and proof that that the Bush cabal cover stories about Flight 93 are simply impossible and violate the recently discussed "Occam's Razo' by raising infinitely more questions than Bush's theories have been able to explain.

NTSB Flight Data: Official 'Explanation' of Flight 93 is a Criminal Fraud!

NTSB data indicates Flight 77 never dropped below 273 feet! Therefore, Flight 77 could not have crashed into the Pentagon. The Pentagon is only 71 feet tall. Secondly, according to the black box data, Flight 77 could not have damaged the light poles. 77 was much too high (the poles are only 40 feet) and on the wrong trajectory. Dare we hope that this is the wooden stake driven into the heart of vile, evil, official lies about 911?

Data released by the NTSB in response to an FOIA request by Pilots for 911 Truth are nothing less than the raw "black box' file, the official 'flight data' recorded from Flight 77. It's a digital record of everything that happened on that flight from take off. Additionally, altitude and position are confirmed by the beacon at nearby Reagan National Airport.

The data proves that the US government is lying to us about 911. The data is consistent with those who suspect that 911 was engineered by a Bush cabal who continues to exploit 911 for geo-political reasons, the acquisition of foreign oil by conquest and the suppression of dissent.

All the documentation for this article as well as the video by Pilots for 911 truth is from the US government or official agencies of the US government, specifically the FBI and the NTSB.
