"Politically Motivated Hype" - At least the 3rd coordinated blitz by government/media for an Iran War by the United States of Israel

Former UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter joins us to discuss what he calls “politically motivated hype” over Iran’s nuclear program. The Obama administration has warned of sanctions unless Iran allows inspections of a newly disclosed nuclear site. Iran insists the site has been used for peaceful purposes. The row comes just after Iran’s test-firing of medium- and long-range missiles and before Iranian officials are due to hold talks with the US and five other nations in Geneva.

SCOTT RITTER: Israel launched a massive air exercise last year, in which it demonstrated the ability to fly hundreds of aircraft, you know, the distance necessary to strike targets in Iran. The United States is carrying out exercises with Israel as we speak. You know, the bottom line is it’s the United States and Israel which are the more aggressive of the players here. Iran is not an aggressor. Iran has not attacked anybody. Iran is simply trying to do that which it is legally allowed to do: produce enriched uranium for the purposes of nuclear power. It’s Israel, which, by the way, is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, claims it will never be a signatory and has a massive nuclear weapons capability—it’s Israel and the United States which are creating a crisis out of nothing.

Fmr. UN Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter Warns Against “Politically Motivated Hype” on Iran Nuke Glenn Greenwald on Iran: rhetoric vs. actions - ISRAEL and the U.S. actually has been invading countries, Iran hasn't!...senators Kyl, Bond, McCain, & Obama hit the TV circuit promoting an Iran War...

The story line that dominated media coverage of the second Iranian uranium enrichment facility last week was the official assertion that U.S. intelligence had caught Iran trying to conceal a "secret" nuclear facility.

But an analysis of the transcript of that briefing by senior administration officials that was the sole basis for the news stories and other evidence reveals damaging admissions, conflicts with the facts and unanswered questions that undermine its credibility.

(Update: Guess what? They pulled this American Police Force website after I posted this! When you hit the big blue "American Police Force" below, it's gone, Captain!!! It was here on Google: American Police Force Organization - Official Website
American Police Force is dedicated to maintaining our well deserved professional reputation as a results oriented full-service private investigative and ... - Cached - Similar)

Why would they feel the NEED to identify themselves as "American"??? (see: FREEDOM Works)

Update again: it's back up!

If it's got a name, and it's not "the police"'s a corporation! Get it? Blackwater isn't "the army"'s BLACKWATER! Get it??? It's not public, it's CORPORATE ("private")!!! Do you say: "let's call the police" or do you say: "Let's call APF American Police Force" when you need the police? Christ!!! The FASCISTS are winning!!! Next up: American Fire Protection!!! Pay your premium or they won't put out your fire!!! They'll put out rich peoples' homes if they're on fire!!! Will you wake up before America is toast???

WHO IS - American Police Force (APF) ???????

The jail in Hardin has been empty for about two years, but on September 4th officials with the Two Rivers Authority, the economic development agency that paid for the facility, signed a contract with a private police firm called American Police Force to fill the jail.

As Ralph Nader says: they win the war of words if you use "privatize" instead of "corporatize". Is this the beginning of CORPORATIZING the police force? Taking it out of the public domain? Is America becoming FASCIST?

Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh are rich fucks speaking for other rich fucks who would actually love it if this happened, and you could listen to them as your house is burning down and have them tell you it's "OK" to corporatize (privatize) the entire public domain!!! Please don't be too dumb to see what people like that are really for and who they speak for!!!

If you're a U.S. citizen peacefully protesting in the U.S. and it's NOT a contrived corporate sponsored staged "protest" against health care, make sure you bring ear plugs, a gas mask, and body armor! But don't bring a gun or they'll taze your ass and throw you in jail!

For first time ever, U.S. government uses sound cannons on it's citizens.

As leaders of the world’s richest nations gathered in Pittsburgh for the G-20 summit this past Thursday and Friday, thousands took to the streets in protest amidst a heavy police crackdown. Heavily armed riot police were out in force and used tear gas, stun grenades, smoke canisters and sound cannons, which direct extremely loud shrill sounds. It was believed to be the first time sound cannons have been publicly used in the United States. More than 175 people were arrested over two days.

It's becoming clear: James "the pimp" O'Keefe has a rich rightwing sugardaddy that finances his "sting" operations against liberal groups, which are nothing more than financed anti-liberal infomercials!

"James O'Keefe, the activist filmmaker who achieved sudden fame for a series of undercover videos recording ACORN workers, has repeatedly said that he is "absolutely independent" and received no outside funding to make his films."

But the Voice has learned that O'Keefe, in fact, has had heavyweight conservative backers who funded the young filmmaker as recently as a few months before his ACORN films were made.

The G20 protest videos you will see on this page are in AMERICA, not IRAN...keep this in mind as you go through this blog!

Police brutality and baiting: Small girl bicyclist at G20 is clearly following officer orders and is moving, but she gets frustrated as they keep pushing her down...and several "big, tough" officers hit her in the head and arrest her! It looks like they drag her and almost break her arm! There is NO discussion in the media or by politicians, on "Why the different government reaction to the Teabaggers vs. the G20 protesters?", the Teabaggers get to bring automatic assault rifles and nothing happens to them! One big difference I can point out, is that a major "news" network, FOX "news", promoted the Teabaggers and several corporations and astroturf groups like Dick Armey's "Freedom Works" sponsored, bused them, gave them signs and instructions. Where is the outrage from the right, Glenn Beck, and the Teabaggers against this government fascism and brutality against people peacefully protesting at the G20 in Pittsburgh? I guess they're really not against government fascism it after all!!! They're only against health care reform!!!

Oh my God! Look what they did to PITT students!!!!!!!!!!!

Why the different government reaction to the Teabaggers vs. the G20 protesters? Could it be, that the Teabaggers are a corporate-sponsored/sanctioned staged protest within certain lanes and bounds? And the G20 protest was a REAL grassroots anti-fascist protest? Why weren't the Teabaggers at the G20 protesting REAL FASCISM? Because FOX "news" and Glenn Beck and the health care industry didn't promote it and tell them to?

The Teabaggers get to bring assault rifles and nothing happens:

This is what the fascist U.S. government does to protesters that aren't bused in by Dick Armey and Freedom Works:

The Fascist American government & the G20 protests: what's the difference between what you see here and the Iran elections and the U.S. government's non-reaction to the Teabaggers? G20 protest - martial law, police use sound cannons and tear gas Pittsburgh 9/24

This is “freedom and democracy” at work. The leaders of the G-20 countries, which account for 85% of the world's income, cannot meet in an American city without 12,000 cops outfitted like the emperor's storm troopers in Star Wars. And the US government complains about Iran.

"We abducted him, threw him in a car with no charges, kidnapped him, handcuffed him, and threw him in jail...BUT WE DIDN'T 'ARREST HIM'!!!! THE MILITARY ISN'T ALLOWED TO DO THAT!!!" - The Military (MY paraphrasing of their official statement)

Here's their actual official statement about the below video:

“Military members supporting the G20 Summit work with local law enforcement authorities but do not have the authority to make arrests. The individuals involved in the 9/24/09 arrest which has appeared online are law enforcement officers from a multi-agency tactical response team assigned to the security operations for the G20. It is not unusual for tactical team members to wear camouflaged fatigues. The type of fatigues the officers wear designates their unit affiliation.”

Fascist KIDNAPPING by the Iranian government of election protesters... OOPS! I mean: U.S. military KIDNAPPING of American citizens at the G20 in Pittsburgh in AMERICA!!!

No matter what the facts are, some liberal activists and leaders persist in seeing President Obama as a principled progressive reformer who lives and breathes the campaign rhetoric about "change you can believe in."

When he compromises, it's not Obama's fault - it's the opposition. Retreat is never a sell-out but a shrewd tactic, part of some secret long-range strategy for triumphant reform.

He's been in the White House eight months. It's time for activists take a harder look at Obama. And a more assertive posture toward him.

Secretly videotaped in a lesbian affair for blackmail purposes? That is the what the testimony says....HOLY CRAP! Why isn't the media covering this? WTF???

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL)'s office has vehemently denied serious allegations published by The American Conservative magazine on Tuesday, in which FBI translator-turned-whistleblower Sibel Edmonds names the Congresswoman as having participated in a lesbian affair with a Turkish agent, and being secretly video-taped for possible blackmail purposes while doing so.

Exclusive: Schakowsky Responds to Edmonds Claim, Vehemently Denies Lesbian Tryst With Turkish Agent. FBI whistleblower rebuts Illinois Congresswoman's response with details, specific questions, and polygraph challenge...

In an interview with former CIA officer Phillip Giraldi, FBI translator turned whistleblower Sibel Edmonds named Douglas Feith, Paul Wolfowitz, and Richard Perle as having been wiretapped and recorded discussing plans with the Turkish ambassador in the Summer of 2001 to invade Iraq and occupy the Kurdish region bordering Turkey.

FBI Whistleblower says Neocons Negotiated Iraq Invasion with Foreign Agents in Summer 2001

If what Sibel Edmonds is telling us is true, our country is in a lot more trouble than we’ve been willing to face, and the amount of work we will have to do to fix it is almost unimaginable.

Landmark foreclosure ruling in Kansas court! Massive decision for homeowners!

A landmark ruling in a recent Kansas Supreme Court case may have given millions of distressed homeowners the legal wedge they need to avoid foreclosure. In Landmark National Bank v. Kesler, 2009 Kan. LEXIS 834, the Kansas Supreme Court held that a nominee company called MERS has no right or standing to bring an action for foreclosure. MERS is an acronym for Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, a private company that registers mortgages electronically and tracks changes in ownership. The significance of the holding is that if MERS has no standing to foreclose, then nobody has standing to foreclose – on 60 million mortgages. That is the number of American mortgages currently reported to be held by MERS. Over half of all new U.S. residential mortgage loans are registered with MERS and recorded in its name. Holdings of the Kansas Supreme Court are not binding on the rest of the country, but they are dicta of which other courts take note; and the reasoning behind the decision is sound.

Formerly gagged by the Bush administration, Sibel Edmonds' testimony uncovers massive corruption by both parties; corporate-owned liberal media, "patriot" Glenn Beck & the Tea Baggers, "conservative FOX "news" - IGNORE the story!

'American Conservative' mag's description of interview with previously-gagged FBI whistleblower as 'explosive' may prove to be a gross understatement. Blackmail, bribery, infiltration, theft, and sale of nuke secrets by Turkey, Israel explained in clearer detail than ever before...

Exclusive: Upcoming Cover Story on Edmonds 'Outs' Video-taped, 'Blackmailed' Dem Congresswoman; Alleges State Dept. Mole at NYTimes; MUCH MORE...

Who’s Afraid of Sibel Edmonds?

GIRALDI: So the network starts with a person like Grossman in the State Department providing information that enables Turkish and Israeli intelligence officers to have access to people in Congress, who then provide classified information that winds up in the foreign embassies?

EDMONDS: Absolutely. And we also had Pentagon officials doing the same thing. We were looking at Richard Perle and Douglas Feith. They had a list of individuals in the Pentagon broken down by access to certain types of information. Some of them would be policy related, some of them would be weapons-technology related, some of them would be nuclear-related. Perle and Feith would provide the names of those Americans, officials in the Pentagon, to Grossman, together with highly sensitive personal information: this person is a closet gay; this person has a chronic gambling issue; this person is an alcoholic.


The monitoring of the Turks picked up contacts with Feith, Wolfowitz, and Perle in the summer of 2001, four months before 9/11. They were discussing with the Turkish ambassador in Washington an arrangement whereby the U.S. would invade Iraq and divide the country. The UK would take the south, the rest would go to the U.S. They were negotiating what Turkey required in exchange for allowing an attack from Turkish soil. The Turks were very supportive, but wanted a three-part division of Iraq to include their own occupation of the Kurdish region. The three Defense Department officials said that would be more than they could agree to, but they continued daily communications to the ambassador and his defense attaché in an attempt to convince them to help.


EDMONDS: Okay. So these conversations, between 1997 and 2001, had to do with a Central Asia operation that involved bin Laden. Not once did anybody use the word “al-Qaeda.” It was always “mujahideen,” always “bin Laden” and, in fact, not “bin Laden” but “bin Ladens” plural. There were several bin Ladens who were going on private jets to Azerbaijan and Tajikistan. The Turkish ambassador in Azerbaijan worked with them.

There were bin Ladens, with the help of Pakistanis or Saudis, under our management. Marc Grossman was leading it, 100 percent, bringing people from East Turkestan into Kyrgyzstan, from Kyrgyzstan to Azerbaijan, from Azerbaijan some of them were being channeled to Chechnya, some of them were being channeled to Bosnia. From Turkey, they were putting all these bin Ladens on NATO planes. People and weapons went one way, drugs came back.


GIRALDI: We know Grossman was receiving money for services.

EDMONDS: Yes. Sometimes he would give money to the people who were working with him, identified in phone calls on a first-name basis, whether it’s a John or a Joe. He also took care of some other people, including his contact at the New York Times. Grossman would brag, “We just fax to our people at the New York Times. They print it under their names.”

What is "Net Neutrality"???

The Federal Communications Commission has announced a new set of proposals to prevent internet service providers from curbing or blocking online services. On Monday, FCC Chair Julius Genachowski unveiled a plan that would make permanent existing safeguards that ensure open access to websites and other online content. The new rules would also extend to barring companies from limiting certain kinds of data, such as free internet phone services and file-sharing applications. The safeguards would also apply to wireless phone carriers for the first time. Supporters call the proposals a major step forward in the campaign for Net Neutrality.

The media see two dominant parties or three political categories (liberal/moderate/conservative, Democrat/independent/Republican) and assume that they must be of equivalent strength. Therefore, if a Republican makes a statement on a show, or if a "conservative" event takes place, they must represent between one-third and one-half of the country. Plus, since the Republican Party has the reputation of being "tougher" than the Democratic Party, if it's fighting, it must be winning.

Nice logic, but it's wrong. Here's the real situation:

The Republican Party has become the captive of a single cultural faction that is unwilling to compromise and unable to moderate its anxiety-warped view of the world. The rest of the nation is fed up with this faction and wants to move forward, not anxiously cling to the past. The teabagger protests, 9/12 movement and other antics of the right wing are the spasms of a culture that never learned to look toward the future and sees every "other" as an enemy. It fights because it doesn't know what else to do. (read more below)
