NEW YORK (Reuters) — With the price of gold inching toward $500 an ounce for the first time in 18 years, investors might be in a quandary: whether to buy gold bullion or shares in gold mining companies.

"We have done better owning gold than shares," said Jay Taylor, publisher of an industry newsletter, J Taylor's Gold & Technology Stocks.

A QFS Member Comments: Maybe the PTB really are getting ready to let the gold price correct... to what effect on the US economy? There are still questionable items in this article though... Newmont and Placer Dome are blaming "energy costs" on their drop in profits and the more likely culprits - the hedge accounts - are pushed into the background. Still, with more and more stories like this, it seems that we are starting to see the mainstream media changing their tune on gold all of a sudden.

WASHINGTON - Many of America's inner cities continue to hemorrhage jobs despite years of federal programs designed to improve their economies.

Nearly half of the country's 82 largest municipalities lost jobs from 1995 to 2003, according to a new Harvard University study. By comparison, only one of the surrounding metropolitan areas lost jobs during the same period.

A separate analysis by The Associated Press found that most inner cities targeted by the federal government's primary urban economic programs lost jobs as well.

BERLIN - EU Justice and Home Affairs Commissioner Franco Frattini warned Monday any EU nation found to have operated secret CIA prisons could have their EU voting rights suspended.

"I would be obliged to propose to the Council (of EU Ministers) serious consequences, including the suspension of voting rights in the Council," Frattini said at a counter-terrorism conference.

Comment: Well, that's one way to ensure that EU countries cover up their involvement with the US rendition process...

BERLIN - A wave of investigations into whether the CIA broke laws and violated human rights while using Europe as a hub for secret transfers of terrorist suspects poses awkward questions for both European governments and Washington.

Pressure has grown on all sides in the past week to explain dozens of flights criss-crossing the continent by CIA planes, some suspected of delivering prisoners to jails in third countries where they may have been mistreated or tortured.

Comment: "It's a pity, because a certain transparency would be to the advantage of everybody, including the U.S."

Indeed. Given that the majority of Americans now believe that the Bush government lied to them about the reasons for the invasion of Iraq, why should we believe the Bush gang when they tell us again that the lack of transparency is because the nation is at war or for "national security" reasons?

CRAWFORD, Texas - A repeat of last summer's dueling rallies against the war and in support of President Bush drew much small crowds to Crawford on a cool, rainy Saturday.

About a dozen Bush supporters stood downtown with signs, one reading: "Real America won't wimp out." Throughout the morning, shoppers and a few tourists leaving souvenir stores stopped in the tent to voice their support for the president.

Closer to the Bush ranch, where the president celebrated Thanksgiving with his family, about 200 people rallied around Cindy Sheehan in a continuation of California woman's summer protest against the war that claimed her son.

Comment: The image splashed across the major media outlets today is this one:

Sheehan Book Signing

Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan waits for people to show up at her book signing near President Bush's ranch on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2005 in Crawford, Texas.

Obviously, we are meant to believe that no one supports Sheehan's anti-war cause any more. Yet from the above article, we can see that while "about a dozen" Bush supporters showed up, around 200 anti-war demonstrators rallied around Sheehan. Why are we not surprised that the mainstream news outlets didn't publish photos of Sheehan surrounded by 200 people??

Moviegoers in the upcoming months will be bombarded by films about the Iraq war and 9/11. These movies will uniformly reinforce the official party line that 9/11 was carried out by 19 Arabs with box cutters and that the invasion of Iraq was a heroic act of liberation in the defense of America.

The Associated Press reports that several productions are set to hit both big and little screens, including the dramatized story of what happened on Flight 93.

Americans have become increasingly frustrated with their President’s Iraq policy.

According to most recent surveys, just 28 percent of Americans think the president is doing a good job, the lowest in a decade. But pollsters say that even without running a poll; just wandering down to the local coffee shops you will see the amount of anger and frustration as a result of Iraq war, the mounting casualties, skyrocketing energy prices and the government’s policy.

George W. Bush returned from a brief but difficult November learning foray in Latin America: "Wow, Brazil is big." Meanwhile, U.S. citizens grew impatient with his performance. CBS polls rated him at 35% approval in early November. Even his supporters acknowledge that Bush's policies have created enormous ill will throughout the world. More ethically worrisome, cried his critics, those policies don't represent who we really are.

Washington Report, November 2005
Three militant neocon pundits spoke vehemently against the Bush administration’s gesture to include American Muslim leaders in discussions on how to deal with the rising tide of anti-Americanism and restore the level of trust and support the United States enjoyed prior to the missteps the administration took at the neocons’ urging.

Frank Gaffney issued a warning to Karen Hughes, the newly appointed undersecretary of state for public diplomacy, demanding that she not attend the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention. Ignoring the false alarm he set in a recent op-ed piece in the Washington Times, Hughes did meet with Muslim leaders and discussed her ideas for bridging the deepening divide between the United States and Muslim countries (see p. 69of this issue).

Gaffney told Hughes point bank: “Don’t go there.” Joel Mowbray, another neocon who is apparently more aware of effective tactics of misinformation, gave Hughes the benefit of the doubt, allowing her to make one mistake one time: “Given that it is highly unlikely Hughes knew exactly what she was walking into,” Mowbray wrote, “she deserves the benefit of the doubt—this time.”

Gaffney belongs to a small but vocal group of militant pundits driven by deep-seated hate of Islam and Muslims, and bent on maligning Muslim leaders and organizations in a bid to marginalize and isolate mainstream American Muslims. He joined Mowbray and Daniel Pipes, two other well-known Muslim-bashers, in demonizing ISNA and the leaders of the national Muslim organizations who met with Hughes.

Comment: While it is open to debate as to whether or not NeoCons like Frank Gaffney and Daniel Pipes really do hate Muslims, what is beyond doubt is their extreme need for the perpetuation of the war on terror in order to continue to sow the seeds of war in the Middle East (yes, that's right, the war in the Middle East hasn't even begun yet). It is possible therefore that their apparent hatred of Muslims has more to do with convincing the American public that Muslims are terrorists and need to be wiped off the face of the planet, a task that the U.S. and Israeli militaries stand ready to undertake.

The Defense Department has expanded its programs aimed at gathering and analyzing intelligence within the United States, creating new agencies, adding personnel and seeking additional legal authority for domestic security activities in the post-9/11 world.

The moves have taken place on several fronts. The White House is considering expanding the power of a little-known Pentagon agency called the Counterintelligence Field Activity, or CIFA, which was created three years ago. The proposal, made by a presidential commission, would transform CIFA from an office that coordinates Pentagon security efforts -- including protecting military facilities from attack -- to one that also has authority to investigate crimes within the United States such as treason, foreign or terrorist sabotage or even economic espionage.

So why invoke the Official Secrets Act to ban such material? Here the plot thickens. Blair is desperate not to have any split with Washington on public view. He senses that a dam may be about to burst, revealing Anglo-American splits over Iraq just when Bush’s policy there is facing domestic opposition.

We assume from this and from Downing Street’s use of the Official Secrets Act against the Mirror memo that it knows of more high explosive lurking in the bomb bays of Fleet Street. Retired generals, SAS soldiers, Downing Street aides, diplomats and spies are queueing up, eager for profit or revenge. Blair will pay dearly for his lavish entourage of cronies and his contempt for discreet civil servants.

Confidences well kept are a sign of sound leadership. When discipline crumbles it is a sign of decay.

From correspondents in Washington

The White House has admitted it has an Iraq withdrawal plan, arguing that a troop pullout blueprint unveiled this past week by a Democratic senator was "remarkably similar" to its own.

The Bush administration also signalled its acceptance of a recent US Senate amendment designed to pave the way for a phased US military withdrawal from the violence-torn country.

The statement late on Saturday by White House spokesman Scott McClellan came in response to a commentary published in The Washington Post by Joseph Biden, the top Democrat of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, in which he said US forces will begin leaving Iraq next year "in large numbers."

The United States will move about 50,000 servicemen out of the country by the end of 2006, and "a significant number" of the remaining 100,000 the year after, according to Senator Biden's article.

Speaking on US television overnight, Senator Biden said that with or without a near-term troop withdrawal, the window is rapidly closing on the opportunity for a US success in Iraq.[...]

"Are we going to have traded a dictator for chaos? Or are we going to have traded a dictator for a stable Iraq? That's the real question. And that depends on the president's actions from here out," said Senator Biden.

Comment: Unfortunately for Senator Biden, the US government and military have already traded a man who posed no threat to anyone, for the lives of at least 100,000 Iraqi civilians. Regardless or whether or not Iraq turns out to be "stable" (very unlikely) there is no way to wipe the slate clean and absolve the U.S. political establishment for its collective participation in what amounts to genocide.

As the Pope’s astronomer, Guy Consolmagno must reconcile faith and science, then work out what to do if ET phones Rome

Even in the 1950s, priests knew that aliens and the Church didn’t compute. If there were extraterrestrials out there, their existence could effectively herald the death of God – cutting the ground from beneath key biblical truths, not least of which is the claim that humankind was made in God’s image.

Consolmagno has been granted a special dispensation from the Church to produce a book called Intelligent Life In The Universe? Catholic Belief And The Search For Extra-Terrestrial Life. Published by the Vatican’s Catholic Truth Society, it explores an issue which could – theoretically – reduce the spires and steeples of Rome to rubble.

NEW! 9/11: The Ultimate Truth is Now Available!

On the fourth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Laura Knight-Jadczyk announced the availability of her latest book:

In the years since the 9/11 attacks, dozens of books have sought to explore the truth behind the official version of events that day - yet to date, none of these publications has provided a satisfactory answer as to WHY the attacks occurred and who was ultimately responsible for carrying them out.

Taking a broad, millennia-long perspective, Laura Knight-Jadczyk's 9/11: The Ultimate Truth uncovers the true nature of the ruling elite on our planet and presents new and ground-breaking insights into just how the 9/11 attacks played out.

9/11: The Ultimate Truth makes a strong case for the idea that September 11, 2001 marked the moment when our planet entered the final phase of a diabolical plan that has been many, many years in the making. It is a plan developed and nurtured by successive generations of ruthless individuals who relentlessly exploit the negative aspects of basic human nature to entrap humanity as a whole in endless wars and suffering in order to keep us confused and distracted to the reality of the man behind the curtain.

Drawing on historical and genealogical sources, Knight-Jadczyk eloquently links the 9/11 event to the modern-day Israeli-Palestinian conflict. She also cites the clear evidence that our planet undergoes periodic natural cataclysms, a cycle that has arguably brought humanity to the brink of destruction in the present day.

For its no nonsense style in cutting to the core of the issue and its sheer audacity in refusing to be swayed or distracted by the morass of disinformation that has been employed by the Powers that Be to cover their tracks, 9/11: The Ultimate Truth can rightly claim to be THE definitive book on 9/11 - and what that fateful day's true implications are for the future of mankind.
