NYT: Is Palin prepping to be the prez?

It's Sunday, so it's a good day to chew on esoteric stuff. It goes down easier.

Here's a provocative column from the New York Times' Frank Rich, who asks the question: Why is Sarah Palin acting like someone who believes she is going to be president very soon?

Comment: On the contrary, there is quite enough "paint on this canvas", for those who have eyes to see. The reader is encouraged to search SOTT page for articles related to Palin, dominionism and theocracy, to get a fair and extensive scoop on what she is about.


Ex-Mossad agent's daughter protests occupation


Tamar Katz, Miya Tamarin and Omer Goldman - Israelis with a conscience
The daughter of an ex-Mossad deputy has refused to do military service because of Israel's killing of Palestinian civilians.

Omer Goldman, daughter of Natalin Granot, former deputy to the head of Mossad, was imprisoned on Tuesday after she, along with two other Israeli women, Miya Tamarin and Tamar Katz, refused to enter the army.

"I feel obligated morally, to refuse," Goldman said.

"I often traveled to the occupied territories, and saw with my own eyes, what the Israeli army is [doing] there are things [with] which I can not cooperate."


Three Reasons JFK was Murdered

John F Kennedy_Caroline Kennedy
Like Rome, the US is forever scarred by murder. In our lifetimes, the best and brightest are snuffed before our very eyes by the cowardly, unseen, shadowy exercise of pure evil and rotten ambition. Those who benefited most from JFKs murder are most certainly guilty of it.

JFK tried to strip the power of the FED, abolish the Oil Depletion Allowance, and 'smash the CIA into a thousand pieces'. No President since has dared to piss off so many powerful and ruthless people. Qui bono?

A bailout and a new world

The George W Bush administration's US$700 billion no-accountability scheme, globally, informally dubbed "cash for trash", is making all the headlines. Simultaneously, there's the small matter of the United Nations General Assembly sanctioning the troubled birth of a new, multipolar world. As a 21st-century counterpart to the Dadaist Manifesto, this chain of events is priceless.


Timeline: School shootings since 1966

August 1966, United States: A student at the University of Texas in Austin killed 14 people and wounded 31 others in a shooting rampage from the observation deck of the university's 32-storey administrative building. Charles Joseph, 25, was eventually shot and killed by police. An autopsy revealed he had a highly cancerous brain tumour.


Row over Internet "war plans" highlights China-Vietnam tensions

Relations between Vietnam and China deteriorated over the past fortnight after Hanoi formally protested at online discussions in China about a war with Vietnam. While only a small layer of Chinese nationalist fanatics made the web postings, the incident underscores the ongoing tensions between the two countries, which have conflicting strategic and economic interests, including in the South China Sea.

According to the South China Morning Post on September 5, Hanoi has twice summoned senior Chinese diplomats to express concerns about the "war plans" that have been appearing on Chinese web sites since August. The plans supposedly outline a full-scale invasion of Vietnam, starting with five days of missile strikes. Following a naval blockade and electronic jamming of Vietnam's communications, 310,000 Chinese troops would sweep into northern Vietnam from the Chinese provinces of Yunnan and Guangxi and from the South China Sea.


Ex Mossad Agent Tzipi Livni set to become new Israeli PM after party vote

Tzipi Livni

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni was set to be Israel's next prime minister after a comfortable victory on Wednesday in a party leadership election to choose a replacement for Ehud Olmert.

"The good guys won," the former corporate lawyer and one-time Mossad intelligence agent told supporters within the ruling centrist Kadima party after exit polls gave her a clear margin over retired general Shaul Mofaz, the transport minister.

Palestinian peace negotiators -- and possibly the sponsors of the peace process in Washington -- were among those applauding as official results began to confirm a win for Livni, who has led talks with the Palestinians this year.

Comment: Israel's answer to President Palin?


Bullet analysis casts doubt on lone gunman in JFK assassination

Use the latest scientific techniques to poke a hole or two in official findings on the Kennedy assassination and suddenly you have lots of new friends - and lots of enemies.

Dr. Cliff Spiegelman of Texas A&M University is the leader of a team of scientists who investigated bullets from the same manufacturing lot as those used by Lee Harvey Oswald during the assassination of JFK in 1963.


American Airlines Flight 77 - The Key to the 9/11 Enigma?

Sophisticated and elaborate plots are often plagued with one or more serious flaws or oversights, which if followed up doggedly would expose them as malicious frauds. More often than not, such flaws are discounted or massaged by the architects and their abettors and although the explanations may not be generally accepted by astute observers they do contribute to the convoluted and tortuous pattern of evidence that keep researchers running in circles and chasing rainbows.

To solve the entire 9/11 puzzle - to connect all the dots - would certainly be desirable. But to dilute one's efforts by taking in all the broad aspects of the entire series of events at the outset would be unproductive.

Six years have elapsed since the attacks took place at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and many of the pieces to the 9/11 puzzle still remain scattered and disconnected. A broad overview of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon points to American Airlines' Boeing 757, Flight 77 as the weak link in the 9/11 incident. The official account of the Pentagon explosion contains inconsistencies and aberrations that can and should be explored and exploited.

Comment: The writer above says:
As accomplished technocrats the plotters were aware of the latest advances in video manipulation as is done on television every day. With real time video insertion the allegedly "hijacked" planes piloted by "Arab terrorists" could be shown crashing into buildings while at the instant of impact a series of low level explosives on the buildings surface would be initiated to etch the outline of a banking plane into its structure.
He doesn't realize that if this was what the "technocrats" did regarding the World Trade Center towers, it could also have been done regarding the Pentagon. That it was NOT done for the Pentagon Strike suggests strongly that this was not what happened. Instead, it suggests that actual airliners were used and did strike the WTC towers and the replaying of this event, over and over again, was the means of suggesting to the masses, in a state of shock, that the same thing occurred at the Pentagon.

As to whether or not those same airliners landed elsewhere, or did not, that is most likely the "easy method of confusion" that was utilized to distribute false leads to confuse and confound investigators such as the author of the above piece and others of his ilk.

We know the criminal Bush gang are trying to tie up loose ends before leaving office to put off indictments (the anthrax case, the silly explanation for the collapse of WTC 7). Perhaps they're getting ready to present a grainy image of a plane hitting the pentagon, all painted up to look light flight 77 and all those no-planers are going to take the truth movement down with them. Thus endeth the 9/11 "conspiracy theories" once and for all.


U.S. policy post 9/11 has increased terrorism: Syria

Rome - The "war on terror" declared by U.S. President George W. Bush after the September 11, 2001 attacks has caused more terrorism than it prevented, Syria's foreign minister said on Thursday.

Syria's Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem waves upon his arrival to attend the parliamentary session for the presidential election in Beirut May 25, 2008.

On the seventh anniversary of the attacks on the United States, Walid al-Moualem said Washington had ignored Syria's advice not to rely on force to stop terrorism.

"As we said to President Bush shortly after the tragic events on September 11, the fight against terrorism must begin at the roots, at the cause of terrorism," al-Moualem told a news conference in Rome, where he was meeting Italy's foreign minister.

"The last thing we should use if that fails is the use of force, as a last resort. Unfortunately they have made the use of force the beginning and the end of the fight against terrorism and thus terrorism is much more widespread today than before."
