The overwhelmingly positive response from MPs suggests Mr Brown is on the verge of obliterating any opposition.

Peace Pressure and 'Passover'




By now, anyone with two neurons still firing, has understood that "terrorist attacks" have long term benefits for the Israeli, British and American governments. It's not just the fact of a "terror attack" however that can be and is used to scare the public into accepting ever more authoritarianism from their leaders, but also the memory of "terror attacks".

We spend a lot of time gathering the news from many sources here at SOTT. We go all over the world via the Internet to bring the news to our readers. Of course, you won't find much, if anything, from Fox News, and very little from sources like USA Today, the "national" newspaper in the US of A. We can't get Fox TV so we are spared the most outrageous of the propaganda and brainwashing.

Every once in awhile, however, a real newspaper from the axis of evil falls into our hands. So it happened that a couple of days ago, we came across the Easter weekend edition of USA Today. We were so astonished by the lies and subterfuges it contains that we were inspired to do a podcast.

Britain 'Humiliated By Iran' Over Hostages

Britain has been "humiliated" by Iran over the hostage crisis - even as President Ahmadinejad promises to release our 15 captives, a leading analyst claimed today.

Robert Bailey, a Middle East specialist, said that Iran had made Britain look "hapless" in front of their Arab neighbours, particularly Iraq.

And he said that Britain had handled the situation badly by refusing to apologise to the Iranians, and questioned why the Royal Marines and sailors were verging on Iranian waters in the first place.

ADL Pressured Media To Suppress Israeli 9-11 Connection

"What are you doing putting this stuff out there? You're killing us!"

These were the words of Abraham Foxman, executive director of the infamous Anti-Defamation League, considered by many in the know to be nothing more than a domestic branch of Israel's intelligence service Mossad.
