Edgar Bronfman Jr.
Jean-Marie Messier and Edgar Bronfman Jr. were found guilty by a Paris court of criminal charges related to Vivendi SA's near-bankruptcy after a $77 billion acquisition spree while they led the company.

Messier was fined 150,000 euros ($200,000) and Bronfman 5 million euros by a three-judge panel today. Neither was sentenced to jail time. Messier, 54, was found guilty of misleading investors during his tenure as Vivendi's chief executive officer. Bronfman, also 54, was found to have traded on inside information while vice chairman.

"On the points that were important to the rise in the Vivendi Universal shares," Messier made "statements of a nature to mislead investors," the judges wrote in their decision. Messier also "had awarded to himself, while the company was in grave difficulty, very large amounts, of a type to exacerbate its financial problems."

The conviction diverges from a civil jury verdict in a New York shareholder class-action lawsuit last January. That ruling cleared Messier and former chief financial officer Guillaume Hannezo of misleading investors and held the company solely responsible for the conduct.

Big Ears: 'Largest' secret spy hub uncovered in Israel

It's been described as Israel's 'big ears'. A huge facility where it's claimed phone calls and e-mails from all across the Middle East and beyond, can be monitored for intelligence. Hidden from prying eyes for decades in the desert, it's become a focus for investigative journalists.

Virginia teen detained in Kuwait returns to U.S., reunites with family

A Virginia teenager who was placed on the no-fly list and barred from returning home to the United States from Kuwait arrived at Dulles International Airport on Friday morning for an emotional reunion with his family.


Gulet Mohamed, a 19-year-old U.S. citizen from Alexandria, entered the arrivals terminal nearly two hours after his United Airlines flight landed. His attorneys said he had been kept after the flight by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents.

As he emerged from the gate around 8:40 a.m., his brother Abdi Mohamed, 28, sprinted over and hugged him, shouting "Gulet!" repeatedly.

The Afghan village that's been wiped from the map - with 25 tons of coalition bombs

The impact of coalition operations in Afghanistan is often bogged down in statistics and political manoeuvring.

But these photos of a devastated village in the Arghandad River Valley show the horror of war in stark reality.

Tarok Kolache, a small settlement in Kandahar, has been completely erased from the map after an offensive by the U.S. army.

Does Joe Lieberman's Resignation Signal Imminent Collapse?

Joe Lieberman is announcing his retirement today which would seem like a victory for the liberty movement. Throughout his career the Senator from Connecticut has been the consummate insider. From conceding victory before Gore did in the 2000 recount, to his full conversion to NeoCon status after 9/11, to introducing a barrage on freedom-smashing legislation; he seems to be the spearhead for ushering in the control grid over the opposition to tyranny.

Joe Lieberman

His non-threatening monotone voice and easy manner made him appear as a gentle servant of the people, yet nothing could be farther from the truth. He is certainly near the pinnacle of the elite control structure and his abrupt departure should be viewed as alarming. The establishment media will point to real political challenges Lieberman faces like the fact that anti-Lieberman activists have taken over his party created in 2006 called Connecticut for Lieberman. However, his resignation may have a deeper meaning, perhaps indicating that his inside job is complete and this ship is about to capsize.

Brad Meltzer: "DHS Recruited Me To Write Terror Plots"

The Department of Homeland Security is looking for terrorism ideas from unexpected sources like Hollywood producers, futurists, philosophers, software programmers, pop musicians and authors. In 2004, the Washington Post reported on Homeland Security's Red Cell program: an "anti-terror" intelligence program that recruited "out of the box thinkers" to help them create potential terrorism scenarios.

"Sometimes I was paired with a psychologist or a philosopher. Sometimes I was contacted alone, via email, and given a target to attack.", said best selling conspiracy author Brad Meltzer, who recently released The Inner Circle, a fact-tional novel about the secret spy ring known created by George Washington that still operates today.

US: DHS Oklahoma: "Sniffin' Dirt"...Snitching On Your Neighbor Will Keep Us All Safe!

Image
© Unknown
This has nothing to do with security, crimes or anything else of that nature. It is a snitch set up. This is community training. This is conditioning to get people comfortable with the idea of reporting on their neighbors; a concept repugnant to most free societies, but one very common to police states.

Homeland Security, that bastion of police state warriors has set up housekeeping in the once great state of Oklahoma. Their new website "Red Dirt Ready" would be more aptly titled "Sniffin' Dirt". The site, all plumped up with militant looking people, some who are, I suppose, supposed to represent first responders and medical personnel, encourages Oklahoman's to be ready for an emergency! Why! You can even win yourself an emergency survival kit! Oh! And you can snitch on your neighbors too!

In the upper right hand corner of the header is a "Report Activity" button. I just had to check it out. I quickly deduced that native Oklahomans must be somewhat dimwitted or at least Homeland Security and the FBI think they are.

Wiki-Hydra: Israel's Favourite Psyop Won't Die

"...The arrogance of the Wiki-Hydra is astounding in its enormity. It is now protected by the century-old gang of thugs, mass murderers and mob lawyers known as the ADL.."

The hydra is a mythical multi-headed beast that regenerates a head (two heads at a time in certain instances) whenever one is severed. Israel's Wikileaks intelligence operation is the physical embodiment of this slimy, slithery, fictional creature.

Exposed by Anthony Lawson. Utterly destroyed by Veterans Today Senior Editor Gordon Duff. Slammed by Dr. Alan Sabrosky. Blasted by Jeff Gates. Shredded by Susan Abulhawa. Beat up by the Empire Strikes Black blog. Demolished by American Everyman owner Scott Creighton. Pierced by Lila Rajiva. And picked apart piece by piece in a thorough, exhaustive debunking by this author, still, Wikileaks just won't go away.

The cat was out of the bag from the very beginning, with it being touted by one of the Zionist media's top assets, Time Magazine. In an even more flagrant display from the Zionist criminal network, Wikileaks received top billing from puppet president Obama's information Czar, the originator of cyber COINTELPRO, Cass Sunstein.

This wasn't enough however; the PSYOP hadn't penetrated deep enough into global consciousness. It hadn't resonated strongly enough with the 'truth movement.' Enter Julian Assange, the rockstar whistleblower traveling all around the world with billionaire friends, corporate Zionist lawyers, high-priced photo shoots, thousand dollar suits and of course, his omnipresent media partners. Under the wing of the mass media, Julian Assange became a head of the Wikileaks hydra loved and cherished by the world.
