1.  “US wouldn’t kill our own citizens, blame Iran, and start a war! Oh? FBI allowed ’93 WTC bombing

Given the rules of war prohibit US and/or Israel attack from the lame lies the psychopaths are pushing, an historical card the US and other governments have played to temporarily “shock and awe” the American public into obedience for war is a false flag attack to kill Americans, blame the target for war, and then attack.

Despite the historical reality of false flag operations, the history of the known lies that have killed a million of our fellow human beings in Iraq, and the elementary school-level lies to attack Iran, some Americans are still too naïve to accept the fact that our psychopathic “leaders” of both parties (always protected by their minions in corporate media) would play “real chess” and sacrifice what they see as American pawns in order to achieve a broader psychopathic policy objective, like ruling the Middle East.

A fact to dispel this illusion is an obvious example of our government killing Americans in a false flag attack: in 1993, the New York Times reported (and here) that the FBI had stopped their informant from providing a fake explosive to terrorists who blew-up a truck bomb in the World Trade Center parking lot. Instead, an FBI supervisor took over the supply of the explosive to the terrorists. The FBI informant, Emad Salem, suspected foul play by the FBI and secretly recorded hundreds of hours of what the FBI assumed was their private conversations. The recordings confirm that the FBI provided the explosives for the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center that killed six, wounded over 1,000, but was insufficient to collapse one tower onto the other to achieve the objective of the bombing.”

2.  “Favorable coverage from Washington Times’ “Inside the Beltway”

A lingering technical question about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks still haunts some, and it has political implications: How did 200,000 tons of steel disintegrate and drop in 11 seconds? A thousand architects and engineers want to know, and are calling on Congress to order a new investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 at the World Trade Center.

“In order to bring down this kind of mass in such a short period of time, the material must have been artificially, exploded outwards,” says Richard Gage, a San Francisco architect and founder of the nonprofit Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

He is particularly disturbed by Building 7, a 47-story skyscraper, which was not hit by an aircraft, yet came down in “pure free-fall acceleration.” He also says that more than 100 first-responders reported explosions and flashes as the towers were falling and cited evidence of “multi-ton steel sections ejected laterally 600 ft. at 60 mph” and the “mid-air pulverization of 90,000 tons of concrete & metal decking.”

There is also evidence of “advanced explosive nano-thermitic composite material found in the World Trade Center dust,” Mr. Gage says. The group’s petition at www. is already on its way to members of Congress.

“Government officials will be notified that ‘Misprision of Treason,’ U.S. Code 18 (Sec. 2382), is a serious federal offense, which requires those with evidence of treason to act,” Mr. Gage says.”

3.  “Ron Paul!

Neocons hate people who talk about the elites in less than reverent tones, because they think you’re talking about them – which is often the case. They hate any sort of populism, whether of the right or the left, because they see in it the seeds of revolution, and, of course, anti-Semitism. Most of all they hate Ron Paul, because he and his followers embody the Jeffersonian values and culture of the American heartland, the old America of Bob Taft, America First, and a Republican party that was skeptical of overseas adventurism. They are the “real Americans” Rabinowitz hates and fears, and, this year, they came to CPAC in droves.

A rebellion among conservatives has long been brewing, and the CPAC convention represents the first skirmish in a civil war on the right, a war that is essentially over foreign policy. The Paul movement is well-organized, activist-oriented, and well-funded: more importantly, it has a well-grounded ideology, one that offers an alternative to the brain-dead neoconservatism of Republican party hacks and third-rate politicians like Rudy Giuliani – whose single delegate to the 2008 Republican convention fairly represents the strength of the Rabinowitz wing of the conservative movement.

The whole neocon pack of attack dogs is bound to be out in full force by Monday morning, on that you can depend. Angry, paranoid, and full of hate – that describes Ron’s critics to a tee. They are merely projecting these attributes which they possess in full measure onto Ron Paul and his supporters. ”

6.  ” Obama’s Pentagon Rebrands Iraq War, Rolls Out PR Offensive in Afghanistan

The new PR campaign has all the qualities of a George Orwell novel. Perhaps ‘Operation Imperial Sunset’ is a more appropriate name.”

“China circled by chain of US anti-missile systems”

9.  “HAITI: Private Contractors ‘Like Vultures Coming to Grab the Loot’

Critics are concerned that private military contractors are positioning themselves at the centre of an emerging “shock doctrine” for earthquake-ravaged Haiti.

Naomi Klein, author of “The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism”, is concerned that the thesis of her best-selling book will once again be tested in Haiti. She told IPS in an e-mail, “Haiti doesn’t need cookie cutter one-size fits all reconstruction, designed by the same gang that made same such a hash of Iraq, Afghanistan and New Orleans – and indeed the same people responsible for the decimation of Haiti’s own economy in the name of ‘aid.'”

11.  “The flailing falsehoods of America’s war criminals

I didn’t think it was possible, but former Bush officials — desperately fighting what they know will be their legacy as war criminals — have become even more dishonest propagandists out of office than they were in office.

This oft-repeated notion — that prosecuting political officials and high-levels lawyers when they commit crimes in office is the hallmark of the “banana republics” of South and Central America — is exactly the opposite of reality.  As leading political scientists have long documented, the actual hallmark of under-developed and backward nations is the immunity which political elites enjoy from the rule of law no matter how serious their crimes (Thomas Carruthers, Foreign Affairs, 1998:  “Rule-of-law reform [in the Third World] will succeed only if it gets at the fundamental problem of leaders who refuse to be ruled by the law . . . . entrenched elites cede their traditional impunity and vested interests only under great pressure”).  What makes a backward country backward is the confederation of elites insisting that investigations and prosecutions are only for the dirty people on the street corner, not for them.”

12.  “The GOP’s “small government” tea party fraud

With the GOP out of power, Fox News suddenly started featuring anti-government libertarians such as John Stossel and Reason Magazine commentators, whereas, when Bush was in power, there was no government power too expanded or limitless for Fox propagandists to praise.

This is what Republicans always do.  When in power, they massively expand the power of the state in every realm.  Deficit spending and the national debt skyrocket.  The National Security State is bloated beyond description through wars and occupations, while no limits are tolerated on the Surveillance State.  Then, when out of power, they suddenly pretend to re-discover their “small government principles.”  The very same Republicans who spent the 1990s vehemently opposing Bill Clinton’s Terrorism-justified attempts to expand government surveillance and executive authority then, once in power, presided over the largest expansion in history of those very same powers.  The last eight years of Republican rule was characterized by nothing other than endlessly expanded government power, even as they insisted — both before they were empowered and again now — that they are the standard-bearers of government restraint.

But that GOP limited government rhetoric is simply never matched by that Party’s conduct, especially when they wield power.  The very idea that a political party dominated by neocons, warmongers, surveillance fetishists, and privacy-hating social conservatives will be a party of “limited government” is absurd on its face.  There literally is no myth more transparent than the Republican Party’s claim to believe in restrained government power.  For that reason, it’s only a matter of time before the fundamental incompatibility of the “tea party movement” and the political party cynically exploiting it is exposed.”
