Missing The Point

Sometimes it seems like everyone is missing the point. As far as Shirley Sherrod, the ousted Agriculture Department official, the real story here should be how the media hopped on this without checking into the facts and how the Obama Administration did the very same thing. So far they've just been trying to blame a blogger and not taking any responsibility themselves.


People are missing the point on the Wikileaks release of classified information. The media is covering who leaked it. They should be covering the fact that the CIA gives money to the ISI and then they give it to the Taliban and Al Qaeada.
WE ARE PAYING BOTH SIDES TO FIGHT!!! That's what the media should be screaming.

Silverchair - Tomorrow

Ted over at Colonial Federation Network has a post that reminded my of this song.




You say that money, isn't everything,
But I'd like to see you live without it.
You think you can keep on going living like a king.
Oohh babe, but I strongly doubt it.

Beware the new moons before the election 8/10/10 9/23/10 10/7/10

I wonder how smart the voters will be in the mid-term election. I wonder if they will remember the Democratic majority thumbing their noses at the people who elected them during the health care vote. I wonder if the voters will take note of who supports the constitution and who who thinks it's a an outdated and useless piece of paper.

But aside from all of that, I hope they think about how odd it was, almost like they knew something MAJOR was going to happen before the election. Something so big that the empty headed little voters will forget all about their doings.

Beware the new moons before the election 8/10/10 9/23/10 10/7/10

The War That Nobody's For - CIA funds ISI – ISI funds Taliban, Al Qaeda

Wikileaks War Logs Highlight Global Intelligence Facade Of War On Terror 260710CIAThe Wikileaks Afghanistan War Logs, publicly released today, highlight and corroborate what we already know about the “war on terror” – it is a vast and decompartmentalised intelligence operation.

The London Guardian reports:

“A stream of U.S. military intelligence reports accuse Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) spy agency of arming, training and financing the Taliban insurgency since 2004, the war logs reveal, bringing fresh scrutiny on one of the war’s most contentious issues.”

The reports are said to have been mostly collated by junior officers relying on informants and Afghan officials, prompting one senior U.S. intelligence officer to describe them as a mixture of “rumours, bullshit and second-hand information”.

However, it has been common knowledge for years that the ISI created the Taliban and Al Qaeda as we now know them, acting in its capacity as a direct front for U.S. intelligence.

Before 9/11, Pakistan worked directly with the CIA to create the Taliban in Afghanistan. Selig Harrison from the Woodrow Wilson International Centre for Scholars stated:

“The CIA made a historic mistake in encouraging Islamic groups from all over the world to come to Afghanistan. The U.S. provided $3 billion for building up these Islamic groups, and it accepted Pakistan’s demand that they should decide how this money should be spent.

The old associations between the intelligence agencies continue. The CIA still has close links with the ISI (Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence).

Today that money and those weapons have helped build up the Taliban, Harrison said. The Taliban are not just recruits from ‘madrassas’ (Muslim theological schools) but are on the payroll of the ISI. The Taliban are now “making a living out of terrorism.”

Harrison confirmed that the creation of the Taliban had been “actively encouraged by the ISI and the CIA and that Pakistan had been building up Afghan collaborators who would “sustain Pakistan”.

Al Qaeda was a joint CIA/ISI intelligence database of mujahudeen fighters they had recruited in the late 70s and eighties to fight the Soviet Union in Afghanistan.

It was later revealed via de-classified Defence Intelligence Agency documents of 2001 that the DIA was aware that the ISI was sponsoring the Taliban and Al Qaeda, but the Bush Administration chose to ignore its findings.

B Raman, former additional secretary in the Cabinet Secretariat, analysed three recently de-classified DIA documents of 2001 relating to the Taliban and Al Qaeda and said, “From these documents, it is clear that the DIA knew of the ISI’s role in sponsoring not only the Taliban, but also the Al Qaeda.”



No surprise then that in 2003 two senior members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Richard G. Lugar, Republican of Indiana, and Joseph R. Biden Jr., Democrat of Delaware (now vice president), went on record to state that Pakistan’s ISI was sheltering Taliban fighters along the border, thus undermining the stability of Afghanistan.

The Senators told the New York Times that there was evidence that ISI might be helping the Taliban and Al Qaeda operatives along the border infiltrate into Afghanistan. Article continues@infowars
))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

In other words our tax money has been used to fund both sides of the war.

Last night on NBC news after they told a little about this they said
"Both the U.S. and Pakistani Governments condemn the release of this information.
I was like
"Yeah, the way a bank robber condemns the release of a security video showing him robbing the bank!"

A Doggy Reincarnation?

My wife's birthday was coming up she wanted a particular breed and it had to be a female. A little hard to find on short notice (yeah, I had a whole year to prepare for her birthday but she didn't know what she wanted until two or three weeks beforehand).
Meanwhile... It was a warm rainy day in Tulsa. My daughter just happens to see a rain soaked, small dog wandering the streets. She gets it, takes it home and does all the right things. She put up posters all around the area where they found it. Put it up on a lost and found site in Tulsa, no reply's. It just happened to be the same breed and sex as my wife wanted! That's strange enough right? This part is probably just my imagination, but the dog acts just like a dog that we had for years that recently died. That dog was my daughter's dog, the one that found it.
Could there be such a thing as animal reincarnation?
What do you think?

“support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.”

By Tom Tancredo

MugshotIllustration: Obama's Constitution by Alexander Hunter for The Washington Times

Eleven years ago, like every citizen elected to serve in Congress or any person appointed to any federal position, I swore an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic."

I've always thought it significant that the Founders included domestic enemies in that oath of office. They thought liberty was as much at risk from threats within our borders as from outside, and French political thinker and historian Alexis de Tocqueville agreed with that warning.

In the immediate aftermath of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the greatest threat to our nation was clear - and foreign. While Islamic terrorism still represents the greatest external threat to America and American lives, the avowed program of the Obama regime has changed the picture in a fundamental way.

For the first time in American history, we have a man in the White House who consciously and brazenly disregards his oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution. That's why I say the greatest threat to our Constitution, our safety and our liberties, is internal. Our president is an enemy of our Constitution, and, as such, he is a danger to our safety, our security and our personal freedoms.

Barack Obama is one of the most powerful presidents this nation has seen in generations. He is powerful because he is supported by large majorities in Congress, but, more importantly, because he does not feel constrained by the rule of law. Whether he is putting up the weakest possible defense of the Defense of Marriage Act despite the Justice Department's legal obligation to support existing law; disenfranchising Chrysler and GM bondholders in order to transfer billions of investor dollars to his supporters in the United Auto Workers; or implementing yet a third offshore oil-drilling moratorium even after two federal courts have thrown out two previous moratoriums, President Obama is determined to see things done his way regardless of obstacles. To Mr. Obama, the rule of law is a mere inconvenience to be ignored, overcome or "transcended" through international agreements or "norms."

Mr. Obama's paramount goal, as he so memorably put it during his campaign in 2008, is to "fundamentally transform America." He has not proposed improving America - he is intent on changing its most essential character. The words he has chosen to describe his goals are neither the words nor the motivation of just any liberal Democratic politician. This is the utopian, or rather dystopian, reverie of a dedicated Marxist - a dedicated Marxist who lives in the White House.

Because of the power he wields over budgets, the judiciary, national defense and even health care, his regime and his program are not just about changing public policy in the conventional sense. When one considers the combination of his stop-at-nothing attitude, his contempt for limited government, his appointment of judges who want to create law rather than interpret it - all of these make this president today's single greatest threat to the great experiment in freedom that is our republic.

Yes, Mr. Obama is a more serious threat to America than al Qaeda. We know that Osama bin Laden and followers want to kill us, but at least they are an outside force against whom we can offer our best defense. But when a dedicated enemy of the Constitution is working from the inside, we face a far more dangerous threat. Mr. Obama can accomplish with the stroke of his pen what bin Laden cannot accomplish with bombs and insurgents.

Mr. Obama's actions, not just his words, show the threat he poses. A level of government deficit spending unheard of since World War II and trillion-dollar deficits as far as the eye can see represent an unacceptable threat to our economic security and our children's future. Mr. Obama could be the first president to guarantee that the next generation of Americans has a lower standard of living than their parents.

Mr. Obama's most egregious and brazen betrayal of our Constitution was his statement to Sen. Jon Kyl, Arizona Republican, that the administration will not enforce security on our southern border because that would remove Republicans' desire to negotiate a "comprehensive" immigration bill. That is, to put it plainly, a decision that by any reasonable standard constitutes an impeachable offense against the Constitution. For partisan political advantage, he is willfully disregarding his obligation under Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution to protect states from foreign invasion.

There is no higher duty of the federal government and our elected representatives than to protect our nation from invasion. Multiple reports and testimony before Congress by U.S. law enforcement and intelligence officials have stated that a porous border with Mexico is "a path" terrorists will use if they can. Some would-be terrorists, including at least one associated with Hezbollah, already have. Recent reports of contacts between Hezbollah and Mexican drug cartels make it all but certain that terrorists intent on destroying us will come across our southwestern border. Therefore, it is of utmost importance for the administration to do everything in its power to keep Americans safe. Our safety is not a bargaining chip for another amnesty - or for any other political objective whatsoever.

Mr. Obama's refusal to live up to his own oath of office - which includes the duty to defend the United States against foreign invasion - requires senators and representatives to live up to their oaths. Members of Congress must defend our nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Today, that means bringing impeachment charges against Mr. Obama.

Green Acres Oklahoma

It was probably 1978, my girlfriend and I were over at the house of one of her friends. I don't remember a whole lot about that evening but one part of it certainly sticks out in my mind. We were sitting on a beanbag chair, things were nice and I thought to myself "I wish we could live here someday." Many years went by, we were married and had two kids. We were living in that same town that we were in in 1978. Yep, you guessed it, the house goes up for sale, we buy it. We've been living here for about 15 years now, the kids are basically grown and on there own. We decided to sell this house and buy one in the country. I feel kind of guilty selling it, I made my wish, I got my wish. Maybe someone else needs to come over and make the same wish that I did back in '78. Anyway this post was kind of pointless, just a glimpse into my life. The house that we bought in the country is a real fixer upper (all we could afford) but it's in a nice spot. Sometimes I feel like the guy on green acres.

Get Ready My Brothers

This advice is strictly for people that believe in the constitution of the United States of America. Only for people that believe in freedom of speech and the right of the people to keep and bear arms. All others, please disregard.

Buy food, buy guns, buy ammo. If nothing happens, you can eat your extra food or sell it. You can sell your guns and ammo. What do you have to lose?
If you can afford it, buy a solar energy system. Find a way to store some water.
What have you got to lose? Do you think the price of electricity will go down?
Is it going to be a horrible burden to have extra water?
If you can, get extra antibiotics, pain pills and any medications that you need.
One more thing that might be nice to have is toilet paper. A good first aid kit would be nice to have too. There are survivalist sites that can tell you much more about what you will need, I just want to try to get you thinking about this kind of thing. Time is short.

Free to Say Crazy Things

Obama's popularity will continue to fall as more and more people awaken to the fact that Obama is trying to destroy this country. He's not a screw up, he's doing what the globalist put him in power to do. McCain would have done the very same thing. The game is rigged. This Dem vs Rep thing is a side show that they have created for us.
Like I've said before, the real battle is about the people that are against our constitutional rights and the people that are for them. I'm for them.

This post if from a comment that I made. I know it may sound a little CRAZY.
Some people still think that it's CRAZY to believe that 9-11 was an inside job.
Some people thought it was CRAZY to be against the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
How many innocent civilians would still be alive? How many U.S. soldiers? If we had done the CRAZY thing and not started those wars?
Some people think it's CRAZY to believe that Obama is purposely leaving the U.S. - Mexican border open so that it will cause problems bad enough to help pass imigrition reform, even though that's what he told Senator Kyl. Here
Anyway, isn't it great to live in a country that lets people like me have freedom of speech to say CRAZY things like this without any government interference? I think it is. I don't think it will be that way for very long, oh no, there I go again saying CRAZY things. I sure do hope I'm CRAZY and Obama is doing a great job.

Mudvayne - Scream With Me

Top Clinton Official: Only A Terror Attack Can Save Obama

Bilderberger Shapiro says President needs new OKC or 9/11 as a way of "demonstrating that he is a leader" before November elections and reversing plunging approval numbers


A former senior advisor to President Bill Clinton says that the only thing which can rescue Barack Obama's increasingly tenuous grip on power as his approval figures continue to plunge is a terror attack on the scale of Oklahoma City or 9/11, another startling reminder that such events only ever serve to benefit those in authority.

Buried in a Financial Times article about Obama's "growing credibility crisis" and fears on behalf of Democrats that they could lose not only the White House but also the Senate to Republicans, Robert Shapiro makes it clear that Obama is relying on an October surprise in the form of a terror attack to rescue his presidency.

“The bottom line here is that Americans don’t believe in President Obama’s leadership,” said Shapiro, adding, “He has to find some way between now and November of demonstrating that he is a leader who can command confidence and, short of a 9/11 event or an Oklahoma City bombing, I can’t think of how he could do that.” propagandamatrix

Okland to Cut 9-11 Services

Business Insider
If 80 police officers get laid off tonight in Oakland, CA, the police chief will stop responding to most 911 calls, says NBC Bay Area.
Chief Anthony Batts says residents will have to alert police via an online form of most crimes, including the following:
  • burglary
  • theft
  • embezzlement
  • grand theft
  • grand theft:dog
  • identity theft
  • false information to peace officer
  • required to register as sex or arson offender
  • dump waste or offensive matter
  • discard appliance with lock
  • loud music
  • possess forged notes
  • pass fictitious check
  • obtain money by false voucher
  • fraudulent use of access cards
  • stolen license plate
  • embezzlement by an employee (over $ 400)
  • extortion
  • attempted extortion
  • false personification of other
  • injure telephone/ power line
  • interfere with power line
  • unauthorized cable tv connection
  • vandalism
  • administer/expose poison to another's
Two weeks after the deadline, California still doesn't have a budget. You can see what's happening to attempted cuts. Right now the state of government has devolved to wild threats, like Schwarzenegger's order to downgrade most state workers to minimum wage.

Pay me a Carbon Tax


Why pay a carbon tax that will not help reduce pollution but will instead be used to form an oppressive global governmental?
One refinery alone, CITGO East, dumped 73,251 lbs. of sulfur dioxide on the community from upsets alone in one year, January 31, 2003 – January 31, 2004, (upsets are events that can release huge amounts of pollution in a short period of time. This does not include the tremendous amount of sulfur and other emissions released daily in order for the plant to operate).

Pay me the carbon taxes and I will use the money to actually reduce real pollution like sulfur dioxide not some silly rip off like cap and trade. (You can pollute all you want as long as you pay someone who isn't and making the consumer pay for the pollution of the producers.) I'll see to it that millions of trees are planted. Trees get rid of CO2 and produce O2. I won't use the money to try to break up nations and bring them into a global government. If there is enough money I will use it to restore constitutional rights to the people of the United States. I'll seal the border with Mexico using private contractors like Black Water. Any remaining money will be spent in an attempt to end the war on drugs. 
Thank you for your consideration.

Despicable Me

My better half and I went to see this movie the other day.
The main thing I can say is "Man, has 3-D ever come a long ways!"
This is the first "new" 3-D movie I've seen, it was fun.
I didn't have as much fun as some people a couple of  rows back though, they laughed a lot.
I'm pretty sure they dropped some acid or did some shrooms or licked a frog or whatever is out there now days before the movie, they saw it in 4-D.
Anyway, I 'd give it a thumbs up.


Gold Coin Sellers Angered by New Tax Law

...So every time a member of the public sells more than $600 worth of gold to a dealer, Piret said, the transaction will have to be reported to the government by the buyer.


...The buying of actual gold, as opposed to futures or options tied to the price of gold, has been a particularly popular trend among Tea Party supporters and others who are fearful of Obama's economic policies, gold industry members such as Heller and Piret said.abcnews.go.com

AL GORE SEX SCANDAL SHOCKER POLICE INVESTIGATE TWO MORE

The ENQUIRER reports in an exclusive bombshell exclusive that police have investigated charges from TWO MORE WOMEN who claimed they were abused by former VP AL GORE!

The allegations come hot on the heels of an ongoing Portland, Ore., police investigation that reopened after The ENQUIRER exclusively revealed accusations by a licensed massage therapist who says Gore groped her in 2006.

The ENQUIRER recently uncovered shocking allegations, from two other massage therapists.

The first incident allegedly took place at a Beverly Hills luxury hotel when Gore, 62, was in Hollywood to attend the Oscars in 2007.

The second reportedly occurred a year later at a hotel in Tokyo.

A Beverly Hills hotel source  told The ENQUIRER:

"The therapist claimed that when they were alone, Gore shrugged off a towel and stood naked in front of her.

"He pointed at his erect penis and ordered her, 'Take care of THIS.'"

Tulsa man arrested after reportedly trying to run over landlord

By SHANNON MUCHMORE World Staff Writer
Published: 7/14/2010  4:35 PM
Last Modified: 7/15/2010  6:34 AM

A man who allegedly tried to run over his landlord in a car was arrested early Wednesday.


Jesse Andrew Thornhill, 28, was booked on a complaint of assault with a dangerous weapon. He posted a bond of $10,000 and was released a few hours later, jail records show.

Police responded to a disturbance in the 1200 block of South Delaware Place and talked to Thornhill's mother, who said her son had been arguing with their neighbor, who is also his landlord, according to an arrest report.

The landlord told police that during an argument Tuesday evening, Thornhill tried to hit her with his vehicle in the street, but missed when she jumped out of the way, according to the report.

Sniper Targets Oakland Cops

Updated 7:09 AM PDT, Tue, Jul 20, 2010



Oakland police have their hands full. In addition to a shootout on the freeway and a police-involved shooting at a BART station, officers are now on the hunt for an apparent sniper trying to take out officers.

"They hear gunshots and can feel the bullets pass by them," police spokesman Officer Jeff Thomason said. "They can hear them whizzing by."

The latest incident happened Sunday at about 11:30 p.m. Patrol officers were on a traffic stop near 8th and Adeline Streets in West Oakland when they heard shots. They were detaining people in a car on suspicion of drug-related offenses.

The officers had to get out of the line of fire and get the detainees out of the line of fire. They called for back up.

The officers took cover, and no one was hit by the gunfire. Thomason said four officers were there at the time.

Police searched the high-rise apartment building from where they believe the shots were fired but they did not find the gun or the shooter.

To make matters worse, police checked the building's security room where cameras might be -- and the room had been vandalized.

Police say its unclear whether that was done in advance by the shooter or if it was a coincidence but they were not able to get any surveillance tape right way which might help in the investigation.

The officers and detainees were not hit.

This makes me think of a strange situation. Generally people would think it was bad if a cop got shot by a sniper, but...
What if you saw a video of a couple of cops beating, kicking and tasering a 14 year old girl who was offering no resistance, when suddenly one of the cops head is blown off by a sniper? The other cop drops his taser and draws his weapon and his head is immediately blown off.
In this situation, who do you hate?
Who do you feel sorry for?
BTW the sniper is caught a few days later and his name is Karma.

Reminds me of a song.
Who's gonna cry when ya die, Lucas?
Who's gonna miss ya when you're gone?
Will it be the black man you called a nigger?
The hippie that you beat up just 'cause you was bigger?

Future of the News

Future of the News
By Jeffrey Folks
It's a frightening thought: government takeover of the media. But having tightened their grip on health care, financial services, and energy, it's only logical that the Democrats should turn their attention to the media.

Discussions underway at the Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Communications Commission point toward a dangerous new effort to regulate what Americans read and hear. The takeover under discussion would apply across the board to print media, radio and television, and the internet. The result of proposed regulations would be nothing less than an end to free speech in America.

Under the proposed changes, government would have the right to impose taxes on selected media (including internet service providers and internet sites) and redistribute funds to traditional liberal news media. Government could impose a fairness doctrine on the internet as well as on radio -- thus forcing conservative media to "balance" their programming by including liberal commentary. Government would also be granted a wide range of options for subsidizing liberal media, including perpetual grants of taxpayer money to left-leaning publications like the New York Times and to increase funding for "progressive" media such as National Public Radio and the Public Broadcasting System. No wonder the Nation magazine has lavished praise on the FTC and FCC proposals: Based on its longstanding liberal bias, the Nation might qualify for a generous handout.

In its recently published "staff discussion," the FTC maintains that big-city newspapers and other traditional media (such as old-line network television) have seen their revenues declining and that, as a result, there have been "significant losses of news coverage." Since news coverage serves a "public good," it is up to the government to perpetuate these traditional media.

Nowhere in its extensive discussion does the FTC consider the possibility that old-line media are failing because they are simply out of touch with the American people. The mainstream television news outlets are clinging to a liberal ideology that is as irrelevant as Lyndon Baines Johnson, but they refuse to change. Who wants to hear Brian Williams's endless reports on "Making a Difference" when those reports routinely bash capitalism in favor of community organizing? Who wants to listen to more of the media's underhanded propaganda pieces carefully timed to support "progressive" legislation like Obamacare and cap and trade? Who wants to watch their biased exposés taking on religious leaders, big business, and the American military?

The FTC seems to believe that serious news reporting cannot exist without government subsidies. Why is it that Fox News and the Wall Street Journal have flourished while traditional networks and the New York Times have fallen off a cliff? Fox News and the Journal are doing just fine -- as are thousands of conservative websites and radio stations -- without government intervention. Government's contention that news reporting is in decline is simply preposterous: Americans are more engaged and better-informed than ever before. Perhaps that is what worries Obama's regulators.

Now Obama is out to force the public to listen to outfits like MSNBC, whether they want to or not. The FTC and FCC proposals are convoluted and numerous, but the net effect is to subsidize liberal news while taxing and restricting conservative media. This dangerous censorship is disguised as a well-intentioned program to "save the news." In fact, it is little different from the sort of limitation of free speech that is practiced in every totalitarian dictatorship.Article continues @ americanthinker

Approval of Obama drops to 28 percent in new Arizona poll

Howard Fischer Capitol Media Services | Posted: Monday, July 19, 2010 12:00
PHOENIX - Most Arizonans no longer think Barack Obama is doing a decent job as president.
A new Behavior Research Poll released Sunday shows that nearly four out of every 10 Arizonans now rate Obama's performance as poor or very poor. That's up 5 points from the same survey taken in January.
What's different is that the number of those who think he's doing an excellent or good job has plummeted.
Three months after taking office, fully 51 percent of Arizonans gave Obama positive ratings, even though the state went for hometown favorite John McCain in the 2008 election.
A year into office, that had slid to 40 percent. But by the time pollster Earl de Berge conducted this latest survey, between June 30 and July 11, only 28 percent of Arizonans were willing to say they like the job he's doing.
=================================================================================
I didn't even know there was a state named New Arizona, oh well, where ever it is, they sure don't think much of Obama. ;)

Americans Favor Confirming Kagan to High Court, 44% to 34%

July 15, 2010

Would be first recent nominee to win approval with less than majority public support

by Jeffrey M. Jones
PRINCETON, NJ -- More Americans want the Senate to vote for rather than against Elena Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court, but the percentage in favor is less than a majority. Support for Kagan's confirmation remains essentially the same as it was before her June confirmation hearings.
2010 May-July Trend: As You May Know, 
Solicitor General Elena Kagan Is the Person Nominated to Serve on the 
Supreme Court. Would You Like to See the Senate Vote in Favor of Kagan 
Serving on the Supreme Court, or Not?
Typically, support for nominees does not change much after their hearings. Instead, Gallup usually finds increases in the percentage of Americans opposed and decreases in the percentage with no opinion. The percentage without an opinion on the Kagan nomination was the same before and after her hearings, which may indicate these were not widely followed by the average American.
The Senate Judiciary Committee will vote on Kagan's nomination next week, with the full Senate voting later this summer. Kagan is expected to be confirmed, given the Senate's large Democratic majority.

Once again, the Obama administration has violated the Bill of Rights. Earlier this month, the feds took down a free Wordpress blogging platform and disabled more than 73,000 blogs. The action was completely ignored by the corporate media.infowars

Censorship Alert: Obama Deception Illegally Removed from You Tube

Made to look like a hack, Thought Police Block Mega-Viral Anti-Establishment Documentary After More than a Year of Dominating Viewcounts, Ranking #1 in Search Engines and Waking Up Millions to the False Left-Right Paradigm Perpetuated by Obama

The Obama Deception Censored Alex Jones is on high-alert after someone managed to compromise the “ChangeDaChannel” You Tube account and criminally remove the most-viewed version of “The Obama Deception” available online, which had more than 6.5 million views and whose URL link ranked among the top of all “Obama” related searches.

The channel’s owner was tipped-off about the breach, and was subsequently able to change the password and prevent further deletions of Alex Jones and other patriot documentaries. Both he and members of the Infowars staff believe the video could have only been pulled from behind the scenes at Google or by a government-level cybersecurity admin with access to YouTube records, as the passwords were carefully guarded and unlikely to be guessed at.

The film, which has been attacked before, was censored at a critical time. Just one day before on Friday’s broadcast, Alex challenged activists to drive “Obama Deception” up in the search engines. Only a few hours later, Google trends rankings revealed that it was the #1 search term, above Lindsay Lohan, the BP Oil Spill or the death of George Steinbrenner. What’s more, the viewcount grew by nearly 100,000 in that same single day, demonstrating the accelerated attention the film has been receiving. Further, as a result of topping the online trends charts, dozens of fresh reviews in online papers and blogs were published, including Blue Star Chronicles, Mahoo News and Live Street Journal.

The Tee is the Key - Adventures in Plumbing

There was a leak in the water line going into my house. I dug up around it and found the leak. No wonder it was leaking, "What a clusterfuck!" of different types and sizes of pipes. I decide to replace it all with pvc from 1" down to a half inch. I've done a lot of pvc plumbing for myself but I ran into a problem. The 1" pipe coming in was at an odd angle, not in line with the house 90 degrees, not a 45 degree angle. I was really straining my alcohol soaked brain. How do you plumb it when it's at such a strange angle? Lucky for me a guy with an even more alcohol soaked brain looked at it.
(Obviously some brains are more resistant to alcohol soakings than others.)
"You need a tee." I'm like "Huh?" He showed me what he was talking about. The bottom of the tee is what you plumb into.(So you have a sideways tee.) You cap off one of the other two parts of it, the bottom in this case. (Now pointing up and down.) Now you can make any angle in the world, because you can turn it. It worked great! I'm sure some of you already knew this trick but it was a life saver for me.
I had a few left over parts.

Unusually High Number of Put Options on Electric Company


Pre-9/11 Put Options on Companies Hurt by Attack Indicates Foreknowledge

Financial transactions in the days before the attack suggest that certain individuals used foreknowledge of the attack to reap huge profits. 1 The evidence of insider trading includes:

* Huge surges in purchases of put options on stocks of the two airlines used in the attack -- United Airlines and American Airlines
* Surges in purchases of put options on stocks of reinsurance companies expected to pay out billions to cover losses from the attack -- Munich Re and the AXA Group
* Surges in purchases of put options on stocks of financial services companies hurt by the attack -- Merrill Lynch & Co., and Morgan Stanley and Bank of America
* Huge surge in purchases of call options of stock of a weapons manufacturer expected to gain from the attack -- Raytheon
* Huge surges in purchases of 5-Year US Treasury Notes

Just as the three days before 9/11 there was unusual amounts of trading going on with American Airlines (goldmansucks) we are seeing the same type of action this time with power companies. This as Obama suporters say an act of terrorism is the only thing that will save him.

Interesting Options Volume for CenterPoint Energy (CNP)
Posted on 07/13/2010 by Leo Goldman

NEW YORK (Market Intellisearch) — Unusual volume of put contracts was traded today. There were 713 puts contracts versus the ten day average volume of 55. On the calls side, 27 calls contracts were traded. Today’s traded Put/Call ratio is 26.41. There were 26.41 puts traded for each call contract.

Put/Call ratio is often used to measure investment sentiment, the ratio serves as a predictor of investor behavior. Unusual options volume provides reliable clues that the stock is expected to make a move.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So what does all this mean?
Some sort of "terrorist" attack on Center Point Energy?
Maybe a cyber attack?
A cyber attack would make a whole lot of sense what with Obama wanting the power to shut down the internet.
Obviously there are people that are sure something bad is going to happen.
One more bad thought. What if it has something to do with the oil leak in the gulf?
I mean Houston is down that way.
Whatever it is, I guess we're fixing to find out.

Why is the President ignoring the Constitution?

JT Coyoté

July 10, 2010

Why is the President ignoring the Constitution and the outcry of the people to control the southern border? Why has he allied himself with Mexican President Felipe Calderon against Arizona’s legislative action to hopefully stop the invasion? It makes little sense until you understand his intent is to ram historically unpopular amnesty legislation through Congress. Obama told Arizona Senator John Kyl privately: “If we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform,” blanket amnesty.

Outraged, Kyl characterized the President’s position on the border situation as “holding hostage” to push his amnesty package. All in spite of popular anti-amnesty sentiment, increased border violence, threats against border county Sheriffs and other law enforcement, resulting in the closing of state parks and border areas considered too dangerous for Americans to enter. So what’s going on, why this unconstitutonal federal stance and violation of Arizona’s 9th, 10th, and 11th Amendment sovereignty?

Here’s a little background. On March 23, 2005, while everyone was riveted to the tube over the euthanizing of Terry Shaivo, there was a secret meeting taking place in Waco Texas. It concerned an extenuation of the NAFTA agreement, called the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America or SPP. At this foundation meeting were signatories President’s George W. Bush, Vincent Fox, and PM Paul Martin of Canada. Their signatures on this agreement began the systematic dismantling of the United States of America, and it continues under Barack Obama, Felipe Calderon, and Stephan Harper. Did you vote for or even know about this?

“This globalist partnership– pursued “in stealth,” without the knowledge or consent of the American, Canadian or Mexican peoples– is indeed a treasonous collaboration with foreign powers, and very much in the spirit of that which the11th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, is intended to prevent and punish.”

Social costs of illegal immigrants is often the focus of unrest over the unsecured border, yet the increasingly violent Mexican drug gangs pose the greatest threat. Even the Mexican government is rumored to be under drug cartel control. Unspeakable violence is now rampant, not only on the Mexican side of the border, but on the U.S. side as well. This alone is reason to take border security very seriously. Yet President Obama and his administration refuse to do what is necessary and constitutional.

A recent Bloomberg report revealed that major U.S. banks have knowingly financed Mexican drug cartels and facilitated money laundering without taking any action to stop it. And then there are revelations, even open admissions that U.S. troops in Afghanistan are not a eradicating opium crops, but growing, gardening, and “tolerating” them. Drugs from these crops are being shipped into the United States with little being done to stop their flow. This points to the sad fact that those in power in the United States, including the CIA, have driven the drug trade, not slowed or stopped it.

And the Drug War continues, as it preys upon the American people, searching, and surveilling, them, imprisoning and punishing users of these “tolerated” drugs. Through tax funds the prison industrial complex profits from drug users, doing nothing to end Wall Street money laundering or cross-border smuggling operations.

It was recently announced in New York that National Guard will patrol American neighborhoods for the purpose of drug interdiction. Not only is the use of military to police the American People a violation of Posse Comitatus, but it is a symbol of the ultimate hypocrisy and treason that has been committed by America’s globalist leaders for many decades now.

Walmart: Save money Live better


By Abby Zimet~Common Dreams

Protests by workers at Bangladesh’s many garment factories are spreading, even as riot police fire tear gas and water cannons at crowds of up to 20,000 people, including children. The workers are protesting conditions and wages, which now average $25 a month for sewing clothes for the western likes of Wal-Mart. One more reason among so many not to shop there.

10 Russian illegal immigrants make headline news while 15 to 20 million Mexican illegal immigrants are ignored

Thieves could go free while victim faces jail time


Thieves could go free while victim faces jail time WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. - Admitted thieves are going free, while an elderly Wheat Ridge man is facing the possibility of spending the rest of his life behind bars, all, he says, for trying to defend his property and his life.

82-year-old Robert Wallace said in February that he looked out his window and saw two men hooking his flatbed trailer up to their pickup. He yelled at them to stop, but they sped away, stealing his trailer. He told police he fired two shots at the pickup.

Minutes later, police say 32-year-old Damacio Torres dropped 28-year-old Alvaro Cardona off at a hospital emergency room with a gunshot wound to the face.

Torres did not stay to talk with police, but they caught up with him later. According to court documents, he admitted he and Cardona stole the trailer.

Wallace did not want to talk on camera, but when we asked him if the two men threatened him he said, "They almost ran me over."

The Jefferson County DA's office said that neither Torres nor Cardona have been charged with anything at this point, even though Torres confessed to the crime. However, the homeowner, Wallace is facing twelve felony counts, including four counts of attempted first degree murder. If convicted, he could spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Sources say Torres and Cardona are believed to be in the country illegally and both have an arrest record. Cardona's record includes public fighting and numerous traffic offenses like driving without a license or insurance. Torres's record includes agricultural trespassing as well as a 2005 arrest for aggravated motor vehicle theft for which he was given a plea bargain to a lesser crime. Sources say Torres is also under investigation for being part of a major auto theft ring.

Wallace is out on bond and due back in court in September to enter his plea.

Neighbors say the thieves should be the ones facing charges and Wallace should be given an award for protecting the neighborhood.
 

Harvard Professor: ‘Exploit Gulf Disaster For Carbon Tax’

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Thursday, July 8, 2010
Top elitist and Harvard Professor Kenneth Rogoff has shamefully called for the BP oil spill disaster to be exploited in order to create political momentum behind a carbon tax, even going to the lengths of embracing the nightmare scenario of hurricanes pushing the oil onshore as a way to create political momentum behind Obama’s dreaded “green economy”.


Harvard Professor: Exploit Gulf Disaster For Carbon Tax 080710top



Bilderberger Rogoff openly embraces nightmare scenario of hurricanes pushing oil onshore as a way of “exploiting tragedy” to create political momentum behind Obama’s dreaded green economy.


In an opinion piece for the Korea Times, Rogoff sensationally warns that failure to exploit the tragedy for political ends would represent a “lost opportunity,” a startling display of mercenary indiscretion, and a shining example of what we warned about from the very beginning, that elitists would waste little time in pointing to heart-rendering images of oil-covered birds and dead wildlife as part of a crass stunt to push their consumption tax agenda.
Rogoff is a Bilderberg Group member, having attended the 2006 conference of global elitists in Germany. He is also a regular attendee of Trilateral Commission meetings. Rogoff is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and writes for the group’s publication Foreign Affairs. He is currently Professor of Economics at Harvard University, having previously served as an economist at the International Monetary Fund, and at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve.
“The fact is, the BP oil spill is on the cusp of becoming a political game-changer of historic proportions. If summer hurricanes push huge quantities of oil onto Florida’s beaches and up the Eastern seaboard, the resulting political explosion will make the reaction to the financial crisis seem muted,” writes Rogoff, seemingly salivating about the potential of an even greater tragedy that would contribute to “rekindling interest in a carbon tax”.
Later in the article, Rogoff brazenly states that “exploiting tragedy” in the Gulf is just one way of filling the coffers of the federal government.
He goes on to laud the visual propaganda value of “high-definition images of oil spewing from the bottom of the ocean” in addition to a “blackened coastline and devastated wildlife” as a tool through which to mobilize young people into lobbying for a tax on the very substance they exhale.
  • A d v e r t i s e m e n t
Exploiting the catastrophe is necessary to “catalyze support for an American environmental policy with teeth,” writes Rogoff, noting that the cap and trade system basically amounts to the same thing as a carbon tax and is just a trick to hide the use of the incendiary word “tax”. Of course, that policy has little to do with the environment and everything to do with fattening the wallets of the people invested in the cap and trade scam, the same alarmists who push claptrap about global warming and CO2, Rogoff’s elitist buddies Al Gore, Maurice Strong and the rest of the globalists who own and run the cap and trade scheme.
Cap and trade was also founded and funded by big oil conglomerates – which is why transnational oil companies have been the most vehement peddlers of global warming propaganda.
Companies like British Petroleum and Exxon Mobil have been amongst the biggest promoters of man-made global warming because they are headed up by one-world globalists who understand that the carbon tax will do nothing to help the environment but will be used to bankroll the implementation of global government while swallowing up whatever deposable income impoverished Americans have left.
The government has aggressively exploited the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico to manufacture an artificial urgency in an effort to speed the passage of cap and trade, an agenda firmly supported by the transnational oil corporations Obama is claiming to be reigning in. British Petroleum is one of the founding members of the cap and trade lobby, and has consistently “lobbied for tax hikes, greenhouse gas restraints, the stimulus bill, the Wall Street bailout, and subsidies for oil pipelines, solar panels, natural gas and biofuels.”
The elite are still desperate to impose a consumption tax on Americans as part of the move towards a “post-industrial revolution” and the kind of nightmare “green economy” that has left Spain with a 20 per cent unemployment rate. In a so-called green economy, over 2.2 jobs are lost for every “green job” created. Electricity prices in Spain have “skyrocketed” since the implementation of these policies, according to a leaked government report.
Rogoff is merely parroting Obama in the push to hype the oil spill beyond all reasonable levels in a move to exploit an inflated crisis. In comparing the spill to 9/11, Obama signified that he was not going to let a good crisis go to waste, as his top advisor Rahm Emanuel would no doubt have reminded him.
Kenneth Rogoff is the neo-lib equivalent of neo-con Stu Bykofsky, a Philadelphia Daily News columnist who called for there to be more terror attacks in order to “restore America’s righteous rage”. In effect, Rogoff is drooling with anticipation at the total devastation a massive hurricane would bring to the region, and how out of the panic globalists could ram through their entire carbon tax agenda with little opposition.
We invite readers to politely email Rogoff and let him know that Americans will not pay a tax on the life-giving, harmless trace gas which helps plants grow in order to enrich the coffers of Al Gore, British Petroleum, Maurice Strong, Barack Obama, and the rest of the criminals pushing this fraud in a concerted effort to reduce our living standards and usher in a “post-industrial revolution” and a one world government.

Hillary Clinton’s Latest Lies

Paul Craig Roberts
Infowars.com
July 8, 2010
The BBC reported on July 4 that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the US ballistic missile base in Poland was not directed at Russia.  The purpose of the base, she said, is to protect Poland from the Iranian threat.

clinton4.jpg


Does Hillary think she is fooling the Russians?


Why would Iran be a threat to Poland? What happens to US credibility when the Secretary of State makes such a stupid statement?  Does Hillary think she is fooling the Russians?  Does anyone on earth believe her?  What is the point of such a transparent lie? To cover up an act of American aggression against Russia?
In the same breath Hillary warned of a “steel vise” of repression crushing democracy and civil liberties around the world. US journalists might wonder if she was speaking of the United States.

Iran Should Strike First


Considering the corner that Iran has been backed into and the apparent impending attack from the U.S. and Israel, wouldn't it be smarter for Iran to go ahead and make a first strike on Israel and the U.S. troops surrounding it? I think they might as well. If you are fixing to get your ass kicked by three or four big guys, I think it would be good to get in a couple of punches, kicks and bites at a time of your own choosing instead of waiting for them to pick a time.

‘Drug war insurgent’ Barry Cooper may face prison for ‘false reports’ to police

By Stephen C. Webster
Saturday, July 3rd, 2010 -- 1:37 pm

One former drug cop's crusade of civil disobedience against America's drug war establishment has turned into a nightmare for his family, which now faces the very real threat of losing a father and husband for up to six months or more.

Barry Cooper stood handcuffed in front of the state's capitol building on Friday morning, after he'd turned himself in on a warrant for allegedly making a False Report to a Peace Officer. Once one of the Permian Basin Narcotics Task Force's most successful agents, Cooper has refashioned himself an anti-prohibition activist and filmmaker; or, America's "drug war insurgent," as area media declared.

With the help of a benefactor who hoped to embarrass the Odessa Police Department, Cooper and a team of researchers, videographers and lawyers staged a high-media assault on the west Texas cops in late 2008. By setting up a fake marijuana grow-house retrofitted with small pine trees and high-heat light bulbs, then ensuring the delivery of an anonymous tip about the home to a local pastor, a trap was set.

After the pastor went to officers with the anonymous letter, Cooper says he suspects police peeked into the home with infrared cameras, which is illegal without a search warrant. They would have seen the numerous, hot bulbs and what appeared to be plants growing, along with the location of the home's heat vent, but could not have known for sure that it was marijuana.

A local judge then signed a warrant based solely on the anonymous tip -- a practice which has also been barred by the Supreme Court -- and officers raided the home, only to discover they were on camera, duped by one of their own.

What if?

What if one morning the American people woke up to the news that the president, the vice president and everyone at the front of the line to become president were missing?
They were simply gone. The Secretary of Agriculture's post had recently been filled by a young, largely unknown woman from Kansas. She was, by law, our new president. Being new and far enough down in the order of presidential succession, she was not under the thumb of any special interest groups nor was anyone controlling her through blackmail. She immediately starts the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan and Iraq. She moves to end the war on drugs and legalize all drugs for adults in a system much like alcohol, controlling regulating and taxing them. She sends troops to the U.S.- Mexican border and actually closes it down to illegal immigration. Plans for censorship of talk radio and the internet are immediately ended. She lets law enforcement know that police brutality including unnecessary taser use will no longer be tolerated and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Unemployment rates drop dramatically after the legalization of drugs and tax collections rise to an all time high. The military is used for defense purposes only and with the U.S. no longer occupying much of the world, instead of borrowing money from China to finance these activities, the U.S. begins paying back its lenders. The dollar stops losing value and makes gains getting close to the value that it once had. The Patriot act is trashed and the people of America once again have full constitutional rights. 9/11 is finally investigated properly and it is proven that certain elements of the government were involved. Dick Cheney and George Bush are cellmates in an exclusive federal prison. (I can dream can't I?)

Celente Says Populists Will Break the False Left-Right Political Paradigm

Eric Blair
Activist Post
July 7, 2010
Trends Research Institute CEO, Gerald Celente,  originally predicted the rise of a third party when he spoke with Libertarian radio talk show host, Alex Jones, in late 2009 and repeated this forecast last week on the same show.

Celente described this populist third party as “Progressive Libertarians” who stand for real environmental issues such as non-GMO organic foods, clean water, air, and soil free from corporate pollution, while advocating for alternative health freedoms and economic justice.  He coupled this group with the antiwar, “live free or die” Libertarians who principally desire a return to small locally-controlled government with truly free economic markets to form an independent coalition.  But is such a populist alliance realistic?
Understandably, the red-blooded Americans in the Liberty Movement are as equally angry as true Progressives, but many are still playing partisan politics with “Obama this” and “Bush that.”  Granted, it is easy to blame the party in power for the country’s current woes; and God knows Bush dragged the Republican brand to a new low during his eight infamous years.  However, it is now becoming more imperative by the day that this anger be channeled and targeted at the proper perpetrators, while offering proper solutions in order to restore America.  Admittedly, it can be difficult to find common ground among the thunderous noise of Limbaugh, Maddow, and the rest of the pundits.
Certainly there is enough blame to go around between the do-nothing, bought-and-paid-for Congress, to the puppet president who has clearly been doing more for Wall Street and Big Oil than for the people who elected him.  Amid the perpetual blame-game, both Republicans and Democrats are equally controlled by the same multinational corporate interests whose agenda always moves forward.  As George Carlin famously quipped:  “It’s one big club, and you ain’t in it.”
Do any of us even know how to define a Liberal or a Conservative these days? After all, in 8 years of a “Conservative” president we saw preemptive interventionist wars and nation building on the backs of the taxpayer, runaway borrowing and spending, and massive growth in government.  Meanwhile, the “Liberal” savior Obama continues to expand the wars, torture captives without trials or evidence, and target all forms of free speech.  Where it matters most, both political parties cater to Wall Street over Main Street, while working to restrict our Constitutional rights.  Fierce populist revolutions have been fought over far less oppression than we see today (see 1776), and yet the generally angry public can’t seem to focus long enough to form a strong common consensus.

Americans can no longer allow the machine to define us by the shallow, false Left-Right debate. In fact, we don’t stand a chance against the current system if we don’t form a coalition with what is most important for us politically.  Even if we do agree and get organized, some powerhouse Independents like Jesse Ventura fear that a “legit” third party may have to stoop to the same corrupt level to compete with the “two-headed monster,” because the system seems damaged beyond political redemption.  Assuming our Republic can be wrestled back from the multinational corporations and banksters through the political process, it is best to stick to defining principles.
Indeed, the Ron Paul crowd and the Liberal crowd have much in common when it comes to very important issues such as Peace, Auditing the Fed, Individual Liberty, Economic Freedom and Justice, and the Human Rights defined in the U.S. Constitution.  After all, it is the Constitution that makes us American, not the Support the Troops stickers or Social Security.
Furthermore, it seems that the stale Left-Right debate should be replaced with a Top-Bottom debate for a real populist movement to take hold.  Average Americans are just now beginning to recognize that the coalition that keeps them in servitude crosses both party lines and is directly controlled by unpatriotic multinational corporations.  Rage is mounting as citizens increasingly realize that the system has been maliciously designed by an unelected oligarchy with a stated mission to destroy America and consolidate control into a one world government.  The enemy is not our neighbor who watches Fox News if we prefer CNN; as all major networks make up the marketing arm of the corrupt system, and are orchestrated to keep us divided long enough to conquer.  This is an enemy whose allegiance is to international profits rather than the Constitution, and nearly all politicians are willing accomplices regardless of what color state they represent.
Populists must be cautious as movements can easily be co-opted by the power centers of the two monopoly parties.  For example, Neo-Con-in-Prada, Sarah Palin, is attempting to hijack the Tea Party for Republicans; therefore, Progressives are sickened by the sight of them.  Meanwhile, Chief of Staff Rahm “Hitman” Emanuel tells the Progressives that they are “f–king stupid” not to swallow Fascist Healthcare. Incidentally, it appears that anyone who tries to regain America for the people is either labeled a radical, or must be jammed into one of the “big tent” political parties. But perhaps this movement will prove to be large enough to transcend petty politics.
As is often the case, another forecast by Gerald Celente may indeed come true as non-establishment candidates are now winning impressively all over the nation.  No one can say for sure what this Independent-minded movement may ultimately look like, but it is encouraging to see populist anger being used for something so positive as kicking the corrupt bums out of Washington. This should be viewed as an optimistic sign of a true uprising that will gain traction and define what every American should be fighting for:  Independence.IW

122 Democrat co-sponsors of the Audit the Fed Bill jumped ship and voted against the measure

The Alex Jones Channel
July 2, 2010Ron Paul’s attempt to audit the Federal Reserve, which was previously co-sponsored by 320 members of the House (HR 1207), failed by a vote of 229-198. All Republicans voted in favor of the measure with 23 Democrats crossing the aisle to vote with Republicans. 122 co-sponsors of HR 1207, all Democrats, jumped ship and voted against the measure.http://www.infowars.com/ron-paul-audit-the-fed-bill-fails-after-former-co-sponsors-flip-flop/
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This bill would repeal special audit protections for the Federal Reserve (31 USC 714 – Sec. 714) and calls for a full Government Accountability Office audit of the central bank to be completed before the end of 2010 and submitted to Congress for review.

If the American people are paying any attention at all there are 122 Democrats that should be voted out of office. I don't know the poll numbers but I think almost all Americans were for this bill.

Obama Administration Accused of Refusing Free Help From Dutch Ships Designed to Clean Water After Spills


~Jonathan Turley
While President Obama has finally accepted international assistance in the Deep Horizon spill, there is a disturbing account of how Administration officials turned down generous (and repeated) offers from the Dutch to send a fleet of ships designed specifically to clean water after spills. They were offering the vessels free of charge so the Administration reportedly said no.
Three days after the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico began on April 20, the Netherlands told the Administration that it has vessels that can clean 400 cubic metres per hour, according to Weird Koops, the chairman of Spill Response Group Holland (presumably, he was not turned down because his first name is weird).
It has been charged that, because the boats return only 99.9985% pure water to the ocean, it was not sufficiently clean for the EPA. Instead, the U.S. has been collecting oil tainted water for cleaning as opposed to the Dutch that can the water and return it on site.
According to this report, when the Administration finally relented, they still barred the Dutch ships and took the equipment for retrofitting on U.S. ships.
Others have called this allegation bunk and noted that the Administration was faced with limitations under the Jones Act.

The anatomy of an attack on Iran

The anatomy of an attack on Iran
By David Moon

In mid-June, Hugh Tomlinson in the Times of London wrote that the government of Saudi Arabia conferred on Israel the "green light" for use of its airspace for an attack on Iran. This revelation was said to be conventional wisdom inside the Saudi military. Tomlinson also quoted an unnamed United States military source stating to the effect that the US Department of State and the Defense Department had both said "grace" over this arrangement.
The Saudis and Israelis immediately denied the report, while US officials made no specific comments on the subject. The silence and denials nixed further media speculation.

First reported in the Times of London in July 2009 and referred to again in Tomlinson's recent article is word of a supposed meeting between Israel's Mossad chief Meir Dagan and unnamed Saudi intelligence leaders to discuss such an arrangement that both governments denied then and now.

Given the apparent regional political status quo, how might the



Israeli Air Force (IAF) strike Iran undetected on approach and at the very least unacknowledged on return if the decision is made in Jerusalem that the existential threat posed by Iran's arc of nuclear progress can no longer safely be tolerated?

Although the coordination of logistics and tactics of such a long distance mission - 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers) on the straight line from Tel Aviv to Iran's uranium enrichment facility in Natanz - is daunting, the strategic or political realities must be defined before all else.

Overflight of Iraq on a direct bearing to Iran is out of the question. Such a path would cause friction between the US, responsible for Iraq's aerial sovereignty, and the next Iraqi government sure to be of delicate composition. It's safe to assume that the US views stability in Iraq far higher on the national interest meter than say apartments in east Jerusalem, thus for Israel the straight line over Iraq comes at a price that it can ill afford to pay.

The likely route to Iran, beginning at regional dusk preferably in the dark a new moon, is to fly a great circle around Iraq. Only careful planning carried out with precision timing and execution will ensure success. For this route, almost every applicable IAF logistics and support asset would be utilized.

The first leg for any F-15I and F-16I fighter bombers is a low-level run up the Mediterranean in the area of the Syrian town of Latakin, where up to three KC-707s (aerial tankers) in race track orbit would top up the tanks of the strike group. This tankage is absolutely necessary for the shorter-legged F-16I (range 1,300 miles). Refueling the F-15I (range 2765 miles) is desirable but not a necessity unless intelligence suggests targets beyond eastern Iran.

To skirt Turkish airspace and the ability of the Turkish military to raise an alarm heard throughout the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the strike group with two pairs of Gulfstream G-550s: one of each outfitted as a network-centric collaborative targeting (NCCT) and one each employing Senior Suter technology must fly low across northern Syria. The G-550 is a small package with the range the speed to accompany the strike group round trip without refueling - therefore up to the challenge.

The NCCT aircraft ferrets out air defense radars. The Suter partner beams a data stream containing, what in computer parlance is called a a "worm", into air defense radars with the capability of incapacitating an entire air defense network, if such a network is under centralized control.

This technology pioneered by the US Air Force and part of the code named the "Big Safari" program is heady stuff said to work wonders over Syria during the IAF's strike on Syria's North Korean-designed nuclear reactor in September 2007. The support of the G-550s will be instrumental every mile of the mission.

Non-networked anti-aircraft artillery (AAA) in states hostile to Israel may necessitate F-16Is in the tried and true AGM-88 high speed anti-radiation missile (HARM) mission.

Yet another application of high technology was the launch on June 11, 2007, of Ofek-7, as noted by Richard B Gasparre, also a source on G-550s in IAF service at airforce-technology.com, is a "... reconnaissance satellite, which gives Israeli intelligence specialists site and system mapping capability of unprecedented accuracy". Ofek-7 undoubtedly contributed to strike planning for the IAF's mission to Syria.

These powerful tools will be counted on to enable the strike package to skirt either Turkish or Iraqi airspace for a short jump of 150 or so miles to reach Iranian airspace undetected. The distance on a straight line from Latakin to Tabriz in Iran is 618 miles. The flight is shorter if the Israelis avoid Turkey and cut the Kurdish corner.

At a designated point over northern Iran, the strike group splits into Q and E-flights. Q-Flight flies southeast 348 miles to reach the known uranium-enrichment sites in Qom (under construction) and Natanz (operational). E-Flight homes in on the gas storage development site at Esfahan and the heavy water reactor complex at Arak on a more southerly path of 481 miles.

All the while in Iranian airspace, the G-550 Suter and NCCT aircraft work in tandem and with F-16I aircraft to suppress radars and AAA, while F-15Is designated top cover guard against any air-to-air threat put up by Iran's air force.

The strike package can count on aid in the form of Popeye Turbo cruise missiles launched by at least one Israeli submarine from the Arabian Sea against targets in Iran designed to shield the Israeli planes, degrade enemy responses and sow confusion among the Iranian military.

At some point, one of the three US Air Force RC-135 Rivet Joint ELINT (electronic intelligence) platforms in the area will "see" Iranian air defense radars and hear an explosion of Iranian voices on open airwaves and quickly piece together events in Iran. This collected product will be immediately passed through Central Command to Washington for dissemination to the principles of the National Security Council, including US President Barack Obama.
Seven hours earlier, at least three IAF KC-707s would have flown the 3,500 miles around the Arabian Peninsula, likely painted up like commercial 707 cargo aircraft, transiting international airspace to a meeting point over the northern Persian Gulf. At this extreme range, each KC-707 carries only an estimated 85,000 lbs of fuel to pass to the hungry F-16Is flying 451 miles from Qom and 350 miles from Esfahan.

Each F-16I will require at least 5,000 lbs of jet fuel for the final leg of nearly 1,000 miles through northern Saudi Arabia then home. Thus, a hinge point in IAF planning; the Israelis must determine the mix of F-16Is and KC-707s committed to the mission.

On and over the Persian Gulf, given the presence of US Navy and Air Force AWACS platforms such as the EC-2 Hawkeye and E-3 Sentry along with SPY-1 radars of US Navy cruisers and destroyers, the Israelis can have no expectation at all that the refueling scrum of the F-16Is will go undetected. During this evolution, any IAF planes too damaged to make it home can ditch close to a US Navy ship with a reasonable expectation of rescue.

Much will depend on what the US does with the information in hand. Does Obama choose to inform Iraqi and Gulf Cooperation Council allies of the situation, or will various US radars simply go into "diagnostic mode", as if operators cannot believe what they see?

If Obama's decision is to watch and listen, the strike group can try a run for home across northern Saudi Arabia. Here, the Saudis have a decision. The Saudi Air Force can defend the kingdom's airspace, possibly taking loses and handing out same, or the Israelis can bet on G-550s tricking out the kingdom's air defenses in a manner that gives the Saudis an excuse to say they were blinded by the IAF and the non-cooperation of the US.

By flying north, the IAF reaps the benefits of plausible deniability, a political necessity for US and allied Arab states. These states can honestly say they had no prior knowledge of IAF planes winging it to Iran with full racks of missiles and bombs.

Another option is available to the Israelis to increase the IAF's odds of flying the northern leg undetected. This choice is to strike the "Duchy of Nasrallah" - Hezbollah under Hassan Nasrallah in Lebanon - to create cover and sow confusion. If the IAF is to strike Iran, immediate blowback is to be expected from Iran-supported Hezbollah's extensive inventory of unguided missiles.

On June 18, the aircraft carrier USS Harry S Truman and task group including the German frigate Hessen in the company of an unidentified Israeli naval vessel made a fast transit of the Suez Canal. The Egyptians not only closed the canal to all traffic, all fishing boats where docked, while the Egyptian military lined the banks of the canal. All facets of this passage rank as extraordinary.

It is readily apparent that the US Department of State and the Pentagon collaborated closely with an Arab country to create a lane of fast transit not only for US Navy assets and an attached NATO ally, but for an Israeli ship.

One more element, the IDF launched their improved Ofek-9 reconnaissance satellite on June 22. Is this a matter of timing or of coincidence?

Tensions are high in the region, yet little could precipitate a full diplomatic meltdown quicker than for Iran to directly challenge Israel's blockade of Gaza. And this confrontation is in no way limited to Israel and Iran. Such a provocation could easily inflame public opinion in Sunni Arab states, where leaders are weary of Tehran's grandstanding on the question of Israel. Tehran's rhetoric of threats toward Israel politically undermines Arab governments seen as less fervent on the subject.

CNN reported on June 24 on Iran's canceled designs to directly test the Gaza blockade. Hossein Sheikholeslam, secretary general of the International Conference for the Support of the Palestinian Intifada, said, "In order not to give the Zionist regime an excuse, we will send the aid through other routes and without Iran's name."

Sheiholeslam's comment makes little sense, as the point of Iran's aid exercise was to win the propaganda war against Israel and Arab states. Whatever Iran's "excuse", there is reason now to suspect the Tehran regime will back down if decisively confronted by a motivated and unified coalition of area states.
