Big Lies, Little Lies

If we cannot trust what the government tells us about weapons of mass destruction, terrorist events, and the reasons for its wars and bailouts, can we trust the government's statement last Friday that the US economy gained 151,000 payroll jobs during October?

Apparently not. After examining the government's report, statistician John Williams (shadowstats.com) reported that the jobs were "phantom jobs" created by "concurrent seasonal factor adjustments." In other words, the 151,000 jobs cannot be found in the unadjusted underlying data. The jobs were the product of seasonal adjustments concocted by the BLS.

As usual, the financial press did no investigation and simply reported the number handed to the media by the government.

The relevant information, the information that you need to know, is that the level of payroll employment today is below the level of 10 years ago. A smaller number of Americans are employed right now than were employed a decade ago.

Think about what that means. We have had a decade of work force growth from youngsters reaching working age and from immigration, legal and illegal, but there are fewer jobs available to accommodate a decade of work force entrants than before the decade began.

US Politicians Blame China Instead of Wall Street

US-based global corporations have been shifting their business to China and off-shoring millions of jobs to the region due to their extremely low worker wages. Americans are already pre-disposed to blaming China because of the media and political jargon. US politicians have been conveniently been shifting blame for unemployment from themselves to China with political ads during the current midterm election season.

Is this really what happened? Arms Trafficking, Stolen Missiles, Soviet Submarines, Nuclear Detonations and 9/11: Interview with Dimitri Khalezov

Read this brand new, fascinating, exciting, mind-blowing and provocative interview with former Soviet nuclear intelligence officer and author of 911thology, Dimitri Khalezov.
Investigative journalist and author of Shadow Masters, Daniel Estulin delivers an extraordinary and captivating exclusive interview with Dimitri Khalezov.

Dimitri Khalezov is a former Soviet commissioned officer of the "military unit 46179", otherwise known as "the Special Control Service" of the 12th Chief Directorate of the Defense Ministry of the Soviet Union. He has agreed to this exclusive interview and it is our pleasure to be able to offer readers of www.danielestulin.com another quality first. Dimitri is a crucial piece of the puzzle in the case of Victor Bout. It is safe to say that had it not been for Dimitri´s dedication to helping Mr. Bout, his incorruptibility and brilliance, Victor, might very well have found himself today behind bars in some high-profile American prison. Dimitri is the first man to see Mr. Bout after his world famous arrest in Bangkok and he is the man who has given more headaches to the United States government than anyone else in the world.

Furthermore, Dimitri Khalezov is the first person in the world to have uncovered the true reasons for the United States government's dogged pursuit of Victor Bout. Mr. Bout´s arrest is directly linked to 9/11, and Mr. Khalezov, because of his unique vantage point as a former member of the Soviet "atomic" and later "nuclear" intelligence says that he knew about the in-built so-called "emergency nuclear demolitions scheme" of the Twin Towers as long back as early 1980´s, while serving in the Soviet Special Control Service.

Question

British Lord - 'I Laundered Money for Terrorists for the Bank of England, Foundation X Can Save UK Economy'

Lord James of Blackheath - senile or whistle-blower, or both?
The British House of Lords is commonly understood as the place where career politicians get to snooze away their twilight years on plush red-leather seats to the faltering drone of their fellow Lords and Ladies. Things proceed at a slow pace in the 300 year old chamber, particularly given that its members have no real influence over the government and limited power to veto any bills sent their way from the lower House of Commons.

It was with some surprise therefore that the remarks of 'Lord James Blackheath' aka plain old David James were received on Nov 1 2010.

Lord Blackheath began his 15 minute speech with a breakdown of the woes of the British economy and the retail sector in particular and appeared to forecast a "massive collective bankruptcy". The most intriguing elements of his discourse however were, a reference to a "Foundation X" which, he claims, is prepared to bail out the UK economy to the tune of hundreds of billions of British pounds, and a very candid admission that, on behalf of the Bank of England, he, Lord Blackheath, had laundered money for the IRA and "North African terrorists". As regards the latter group, Blackheath claimed that he could not say any more because it was "still a security issue".

Happy Counterterrorism Day

Guy Fawkes most certainly was guilty of the crime of which he was charged and for which he was executed. But a great many other people suffered in the decades that followed merely because of their religious confession. For the most part they were Catholics. Or they had passed some time in Spain, France, or Italy for which they could not account to the government's satisfaction.


Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder, treason and plot,
I know of no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, 'twas his intent
To blow up the King and Parliament.
Three score barrels of powder below,
Poor old England to overthrow;
By God's providence he was catch'd
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, make the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
Hip hip hoorah!

A penny loaf to feed the Pope.
A farthing o' cheese to choke him.
A pint of beer to rinse it down.
A faggot of sticks to burn him.
Burn him in a tub of tar.
Burn him like a blazing star.
Burn his body from his head.
Then we'll say ol' Pope is dead.
Hip hip hoorah!
Hip hip hoorah hoorah!

The Impotence of Elections

Image
In his historical novel, The Leopard, Giuseppe di Lampedusa writes that things have to change in order to remain the same. That is what happened in the US congressional elections on November 2.

Jobs off-shoring, which began on a large scale with the collapse of the Soviet Union, has merged the Democrats and Republicans into one party with two names. The Soviet collapse changed attitudes in socialist India and communist China and opened those countries, with their large excess supplies of labor, to Western capital.

Pushed by Wall Street and Wal-Mart, American manufacturers moved production for US markets offshore to boost profits and shareholder earnings by utilizing cheap labor. The decline of the US manufacturing work force reduced the political power of unions and the ability of unions to finance the Democratic Party. The end result was to make the Democrats dependent on the same sources of financing as Republicans.

Bush admits approving waterboarding of CIA detainees.

Former US president George Bush has admitted that he personally approved a request by CIA agents to use waterboarding -- a form of torture that simulates drowning.

In his book "Decision Points," to hit the shelves on Tuesday, Bush makes it clear that he approved the use of waterbording in interrogation of so-called "terror suspects."

He recalls in the memoir that when the CIA asked him whether it could proceed with waterboarding of Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the alleged plotter of the 9/11 attacks, he replied "Damn right," The Washington Post reported.

Who Has The Crystal Ball?

My conservative and Republican acquaintances believe that the "liberal media" is destroying America. When I ask them to identify the liberal media, the usual reply is, "all of it!" I ask them about Fox "News," CNN, and point out that the TV networks are no longer independent but parts of large corporate conglomerates and that all of the "liberal" news anchors have been fired or died off.

At that point my acquaintances fall back on the New York Times and the Washington Post.

I remind them that the invasion of Iraq would not have been possible without the New York Times leading the way. Judith Miller filled that newspaper with the neoconservative/Bush regime propaganda that was orchestrated to make the public accept US aggression toward Iraq. The Times later sort of apologized and Miller departed the paper.

That left the Washington Post, apparently long a CIA asset, as the "liberal media" that is destroying America, until on October 31 the paper's long-time pundit, David Broder, wrote that Obama should spend the next two years disarming the Republicans and renewing the economy by orchestrating a showdown with Iran. Going to war with Iran, "the greatest threat to the world," would simultaneously unite Republicans with Obama and restore the economy. By following Broder's prescription, Obama "will have made the world safer and may be regarded as one of the most successful presidents in history."

Sex abuse victims hold demo at Vatican

Image
Sex abuse victims from across the world have taken their protests condemning the Catholic Church's handling of the scandals to the Vatican's doorstep.

Hundreds of protestors, including some relatives and victims of the Catholic Church's sex scandal, gathered in Rome at the edge of St. Peter's Square on Sunday. The demonstration was organized by a US group called Survivor's Voice, whose founding members are victims of Catholic Church child abuse.

Gary Bergeron, one of the founding members, stated that the purpose of the protest was "to bring survivors and supporters from around the world together for the first time," Sky News reported.

He said the victims had not been given permission to enter St. Peter's Square as a group, but they would attempt to go in smaller groups to leave letters and stones to show they had visited the Vatican.
