Iran accuses Israel and US of assassinating scientist

Iran's parliamentary speaker has accused Israel and the United States of assassinating a scientist with possible links to the country's nuclear programme.

Darioush Rezainejad's death at the hands of motorcycle-riding gunmen prompted speculation that a violent and covert campaign to slow Iran's development of nuclear materials was again underway.

The 35-year old scientist was shot dead outside a kindergarten in east Tehran where he had gone to pick up his daughter. Mr Rezainejad's wife was wounded in the attack before the motorcyclists sped away.

The method of execution bore similarities to a spate of killings and attempted killings of Iranian nuclear scientists last year that involved assassins on motorcycles.

Ali Larijani, the hawkish speaker of the Iranian parliament, was quick to apportion blame.

"The American-Zionist terrorist attack yesterday against one of the country's scientists is yet another sign of the Americans' degree of animosity," he told MPs.

Pushing Crisis: GOP Cries Wolf on Debt Ceiling in Order to Impose Radical Pro-Rich Agenda


President Obama and Republican House Speaker John Boehner are allegedly close to a $3 trillion deficit-reduction package as part of a deal to raise the federal debt ceiling before an Aug. 2 deadline. But the deal is coming under fire from both congressional Democrats and Republicans. Part of it calls for lowering personal and corporate income tax rates, while eliminating or reducing an array of popular tax breaks, such as the deduction for home mortgage interest. Some Democratic lawmakers expressed outrage on Thursday because the Obama-Boehner agreement appears to violate their pledge not to cut Social Security and Medicare benefits, as well as Obama's promise not to make deep cuts in programs for the poor without extracting some tax concessions from the rich. We're joined by economist Michael Hudson, president of the Institute for the Study of Long-Term Economic Trends, a Distinguished Research Professor of Economics at the University of Missouri, Kansas City, and author of Super Imperialism: The Economic Strategy of American Empire.

Mystery of TWA Flight 800 Persists, 15 Years Later

Sunday, July 17th, marked the 15th anniversary of the explosion of TWA Flight 800 off the coast of Long Island, New York at approximately 8:30 p.m., 12 minutes after it left New York's Kennedy Airport heading for Paris, killing all 230 people aboard. To commemorate this tragic event, AIM gathered a group of people who have looked into this event, each bringing his own insights and knowledge of the case to the table.

Those participating on AIM's show on BlogTalkRadio, Take AIM, on July 14th included John Clarke, an attorney who has worked on this case in several capacities since 1997; Jack Cashill, a journalist and producer who has co-written a book and produced a documentary on the subject; and retired Captain Mike Larkin, a former Air Force pilot who later became a TWA pilot for more than 30 years, and who often piloted TWA 800 from New York to Paris. I hosted the show, and have produced and written a documentary on the subject called TWA 800: The Search for the Truth.

Comment: Consider the following excerpts from the Cassiopaean Experiment dated November 23, 1996:
Q: (T) About Flight 800. Pierre Salinger claims that the info floating around on the internet is accurate. He says that the Navy downed the flight.
A: Close. Pierre Salinger is an impeccable journalist and not one to "fly off the handle."
Q: (T) Very true. And that is why I am amazed that the rest of the journalism community is attacking him.
A: Why should you be amazed? They are "bought and paid for."
Q: (T) What did happen to flight 800?
A: This was the result of an experiment gone awry. So was KAL "007" in 1983.
Q: (L) What was the nature of the experiment?
A: Testing of secret impulse guidance system using civilian airliner as an arbitrary "bounce" guidance target. Instead, it became the "homing" target, and a different aircraft became the bouncer. This was because the programmers did not anticipate the lower than expected altitude of the 747. Warning: this must stay in this room for the present!!!!!!!!!! The facts will eventually be discussed by others. At that time, the danger is lifted. [At this point, it has been discussed in the exact same terms as described here in a reputable, national magazine.]

Now, about KAL 007... that one is not dangerous to know. The plane was deliberately instructed to fly off course in order to trigger the Soviet's Pacific air defense system, to "see what they were made of" in that area. The plane was lost, but the experiment worked. They did not expect them to shoot down a civilian airliner. Now, all moving targets create electronic impulses. These can be "read" by the proper extremely high tech equipment. Older radar guided systems are subject to malfunctions in weather conditions that are severe, as one example.

Also, the impulse system is an offshoot of the electromagnetic pulse experiments being carried out at Montauk, Brookings and elsewhere as part of the HAARP project! In connection with Pentagon missile tests, HAARP has many interesting tie-ins, not the least of which is your cell phone towers. Now, the homing target can be any moving object. It can be whatever is entered on the computer. It can be a squirrel in a tree, a jogger on the beach, a building, whatever you want. The system looks for any moving target in order to establish recognition to the computer, in order to establish recognition of match pattern of pulse. TWA 800 was flying at the exact same altitude that was supposed to be designated for the "drone" craft. The drone plane was farther out at sea. The "bounce" target was to be any moving object in the air within 400 square miles.
Q: (L) So, TWA 800, through a series of problems, happened to find itself at the right altitude, a restricted altitude, within the parameters of the experiment. Anything further
on this?
A: Not for now.

Exercise in Futility: Israel Urged to Stop Faking Foreign Passports

Various countries send strong message to Israel saying they are aware their passports are being used by Mossad agents.

Various countries have sent secret messages to Israel informing Jerusalem that they are aware that Mossad agents are using their passports in overseas operations, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Thursday.

The countries, all friends of Israel, demanded to halt all use of such passports in messages to Israeli embassies and as part of the consular discourse.

The protest had caused considerable embarrassment to Israel in several cases. In other cases, Israel could not respond to the claims as they did not include names and details of the alleged Mossad agents.

The protest grew following the assassination of Hamas official Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai in February 2010. Dubai's police distributed photos and names of 33 individuals suspected of entering the country using European passports.

Comment: Read Joe Quinn's article Mossad Psychopaths Behind Murder of Hamas Official In Dubai to learn more about Mossad's recent undercover history in New Zealand, Australia, the UK, Canada, the US, etc.

As for New Zealand Prime Minister John Key's denial, read the following article: Mossad Down Under - Again?

Mossad Down Under - Again?

In the midst of the Christchurch, New Zealand, earthquake in February 2011, a group of young Israelis, caught up in the destruction, made a quick exit back to their homeland, leaving three of their friends who had died. Now a source within the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service (SIS) has blown the whistle on police and SIS investigations into the activities of the Israelis and those of Israeli search and rescue and forensic teams quickly dispatched to the city.

Prime Minister John Key, visiting the USA at the time, has assured New Zealanders that the police and SIS have concluded the Israeli youths were harmless backpackers, and concerns that the forensic team might have hacked the police intelligence database have proved to be groundless. However, given the Mossad passport fraud fiasco in 2004, which saw two Israelis jailed, and two others fleeing the country, including top Mossad operative Zev Barkan, many New Zealanders, including the news media, have remained skeptical.

U.S.:'Super Congress': Debt Ceiling Negotiators Aim To Create New Legislative Body

Image

Washington -- Debt ceiling negotiators think they've hit on a solution to address the debt ceiling impasse and the public's unwillingness to let go of benefits such as Medicare and Social Security that have been earned over a lifetime of work: Create a new Congress.

This "Super Congress," composed of members of both chambers and both parties, isn't mentioned anywhere in the Constitution, but would be granted extraordinary new powers. Under a plan put forth by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and his counterpart Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), legislation to lift the debt ceiling would be accompanied by the creation of a 12-member panel made up of 12 lawmakers -- six from each chamber and six from each party.

Legislation approved by the Super Congress -- which some on Capitol Hill are calling the "super committee" -- would then be fast-tracked through both chambers, where it couldn't be amended by simple, regular lawmakers, who'd have the ability only to cast an up or down vote. With the weight of both leaderships behind it, a product originated by the Super Congress would have a strong chance of moving through the little Congress and quickly becoming law. A Super Congress would be less accountable than the system that exists today, and would find it easier to strip the public of popular benefits. Negotiators are currently considering cutting the mortgage deduction and tax credits for retirement savings, for instance, extremely popular policies that would be difficult to slice up using the traditional legislative process.

Semantic Propaganda Feeds Stupidity: Lies are being fed to the Public by America's Two-party Plutocracy

We would already have had a much needed American revolution in response to the tyranny of the money-fed two-party plutocracy that is destroying the middle class except for one big problem: so much of the American population is just plain stupid. Too stupid to behave like angry Greeks and rise up in the streets to rebel against the dysfunctional government.

In the never ending fight of Republicans and their cancerous (make that stupid) Tea Party members to gain even more control of the US political system, economy and culture they have fixed on another semantic weapon. The latest attack on intelligence is the constant use of the term job creators in place of words like the rich or wealthy. Not just plain Republicans in Congress are doing this, but especially the large crop of Republican presidential candidates.

This bit of cleverness surely was deemed necessary because much of the nation was beginning to appreciate the class warfare going on. Rising economic inequality, unemployment set in concrete, and merging of the middle class into the poverty stricken lower class were all becoming clearer.

The government's chief investigation into last year's Deepwater Horizon disaster will not be complete by a July 27 deadline, officials confirmed Friday.

The probe by the U.S. Coast Guard and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement has already received two extensions, partly because of delays in testing emergency equipment that failed to stop the Gulf oil spill. In February, the government said it was aiming to issue the report by July 27.

Joint investigation team members now are putting the final touches on a report summarizing their conclusions about what led to the lethal explosion of the Deepwater Horizon rig in April 2010.

Iranian professor assassinated in Tehran

A prominent Iranian University professor has been assassinated by unknown terrorists, informed sources with the Iranian police say.

Daryoush Rezaienejad and his wife were on their way to their child's kindergarten when they were approached by two men on motorbikes. The gunmen called him by name and shot Rezaeinejad, 35, in the neck when he turned around.

The gunmen chased Rezaeinejad's wife who attempted to find help for her husband. She is currently in hospital, a Press TV correspondent reported.

No group or individual has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Initially, local Iranian media had reported that Daryoush Rezaienejad was a nuclear physicist..

Barack Obama accuses the US Congress of risking a global banking catastrophe as debt talks collapse

Angry president lashes out after Republicans walk away from talks on borrowing limit, raising the spectre of US default

Talks to stave off a potentially catastrophic US default on debt payments were in crisis as Republicans and Democrats struggled to avert a disaster that could trigger a global economic crisis.

Both sides agree that the US needs to pass legislation to raise its debt limit above its current level of $14.3 trillion (ยฃ8.7tn). But negotiations collapsed in acrimony late on Friday over details of a package of spending cuts and tax rises that would help to pay for such a move.

A visibly angry President Barack Obama attacked the Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, for refusing to return his phone calls and then abandoning the negotiations. "I've been left at the altar now a couple of times and I think that one of the questions that the Republican party is going to have to ask itself is: can they say yes to anything?"

If agreement is not reached, it could trigger what had once been unthinkable: a US default on its debt payments. If that happened, most experts predict, it would see a plunge in stock and bond markets worldwide that would threaten a new great recession. The deadline for agreement is just over a week away, on 2 August.
