1.  “No opinion, no knowledge … what sort of civic-minded citizen have we here? Dr Wieman, we’ve got the Patriot Act, the War on Terror, the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq, illegal spying on Americans, torture camps – all justified by the events of 9/11 – and you have No knowledge, No opinion!

Don’t you care about this in the slightest, not even enough to get informed? I consider that pathetic, cowardly, irresponsible.

It’s time to starting calling these people what they are, accessories after the fact. It’s time that people in media, politics, military and education who willingly ignore the overwhelming evidence about the lies of 9/11 have the prefix of accessory after the fact attached to their name. If every time a citizen referenced or confronted one these people the accessory after the fact prefix was used it would have an effect. For example, I was watching Hardball with Accessory After the Fact Matthews and the guest was Accessory After the Fact Barney Frank.”

2.  Not surprising, since it happens in every country in which the CIA intervenes:

Honduras, already poor, sinks further after coup”

3.  “People Who Get a Seasonal Flu Shot Are Twice as Likely to Catch Swine Flu”

4.  “A Goldman executive as COO of the SEC’s enforcement division.  This is all consistent with the observation of Desmond Lachman — previously chief emerging market strategist at Salomon Smith Barney and IMF deputy director — regarding “Goldman Sachs’s seeming lock on high-level U.S. Treasury jobs,” which he cited as but one of the many “parallels between U.S. policymaking and what we see in emerging markets.”

According to ABC News in October, 2008, Goldman “spent more than $43 million dollars on lobbying and campaign contributions to cultivate friends and buy influence in Washington, D.C. since 1989” and their “bankers have been the country’s top political campaign contributors this year.”  “They are almost in a class by themselves,” said Sheila Krumholz, the executive director for the Center for Responsive Politics.   As Michael Moore has been pointing out, Goldman was the number one source of funding for the Obama 2008 presidential campaign.

Recently obtained calenders from Geithner reveal that “Goldman, Citi and JPMorgan can get Geithner on the phone several times a day if necessary, giving them an unmatched opportunity to influence policy” and “Geithner’s contacts with Blankfein alone outnumber his contacts with Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., chairman of the Senate Banking Committee.”

That the administration continues, so brazenly, to place Goldman Sachs executive in the very government positions with the greatest power over the financial industry illustrates how little effort is devoted to hiding what is really taking place.”
