The power this “State” now wields is near-universal. The US, UK, Germany, France folded years ago. They all shudder in the face of Zion. For those of you who might be unaware, Angela Merkel and Nicholas Sarkozy were both groomed and installed by Netanyahu and Sharon. Israel’s absolute dominance over US politics, of course, is old hat. You might recall it was Sharon who said [to Shimon Peres, on October 3, 2001], "Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that... I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it"...
Baroness sacked for anti-Israel comments
Baroness Jenny Tonge, a Liberal Democrat frontbencher in Britain, has been sacked as the party's health spokeswoman after urging an inquiry into charges that Israeli forces in Haiti harvested the organs of victims, British media outlets reported Saturday.
Tonge, who served as a Liberal Democrat spokeswoman in the House of Lords, has been removed from the post.
Party lead Nick Clegg initially refused to take steps against Tonge, whose comments were published by The Jewish Chronicle Thursday. However, he later changed his position, dismissing the baroness' comments as "wrong and distasteful."
In her interview with The Jewish Chronicle, Tonge said: "To prevent allegations such as these - which have already been posted on You Tube - going any further, the IDF and the Israeli Medical Association should establish an independent inquiry immediately to clear the names of the team in Haiti."
In a statement issued by Clegg, Saturday he said: "Following discussions with the Leader of the Liberal Democrats in the House of Lords, Lord McNally, I have decided that Jenny Tonge will stand down as Liberal Democrat health spokesperson in the Lords following her unacceptable comments suggesting an inquiry into highly offensive allegations against the IDF humanitarian operation in Haiti."
"The comments were wrong, distasteful and provocative and I recognize the deep and understandable distress they have caused to the Jewish community," he said, while noting that he does not believe that Jenny Tonge is anti-Semitic or racist
Summary of the Goldstone Report - UN Report on Israel's War Crimes
Lest we forget: The father of America’s sitting Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, was also a member of Irgun, and actively engaged in some of the bloodiest acts of terror ever committed. In fact, Irgun boasts the dubious distinction of having invented the ‘car bomb’...
Letter to the editor of The Independent (From an RAF clerk who was actually in Palestine in 1946)...
Dr Jacob Amir's letter (9 January) claiming that those who deny the right of Israel to exist as a nation state of the Jewish people while not opposing any other nation state can be called anti-Semitic is not persuasive.
He conveniently overlooks the means by which statehood was achieved by the agreement in 1947 for the British mandate to cease in 1948 and for a division of the territory to be finally allocated, following large land allocations to Jewish settlers since 1917, enabling the kibbutzim to be set up.
These means consisted of a series of terrorist attacks, starting in 1944, by the Irgun Zwei Leumi, led by Menachem Begin, and the Stern Gang, including the bomb attack on the King David hotel in Jerusalem and culminating in the Deir Yassin massacre as late as April 1948 which caused such a panic that hundreds of thousands of terrified Arabs left the country "voluntarily", thus vacating their land and reducing their majority in the population.
In 1946, I was in the RAF in Palestine as a briefing clerk at an airfield between Haifa and Nazareth. Our unit had its headquarters at the King David Hotel and I was on the phone to them at the time of the attack. Although non-combatants, we manned a nightly armed security guard against terrorist attacks. Yet our neighbours in the two kibbutzim along and across the road were always friendly and hospitable and regularly invited us to meals and concerts.
I never was and never shall be anti-Semitic but I too view the means of obtaining statehood at the expense of the Arab population over and above what was intended and agreed as deeply deplorable, as deplorable as the continuation of the same attitude in today's expansionist politics.
Letter from Lt. Col. Shelton F. Lankford to Rachel Maddow concerning her swipe at Texas gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina
Letter from Lt. Col. Shelton F. Lankford (USMC, Ret.) to Rachel Maddow...
It's a nice picture, from the Air America cruise a couple of years ago.
It says "Dear Shelton, your country needs you! Thanks for fighting the good fight", and it is signed "Rachel Maddow"
On that cruise, I had occasion to talk with you briefly about how we might get that boat-load of progressives fired up about demanding answers to vexing questions about 9/11 and demanding accountability for those who have lied, and media that maintains a total boycott on information about 9/11 that does not conform to the official accounts.
I noticed you didn't label me a kook. Perhaps you were just being polite, as courtesy is your custom.
Your swipe at Texas gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina tonight, labeled her a "kook" for merely raising questions about government complicity in 9/11, even though she was back-peddling even as she spoke.
In the past, when a Glenn Beck or a Michelle Bachman claimed something outrageous, you took some time to present evidence that they were either lying or were mistaken. Way to go.
But when it comes to 9/11, anyone who asks a question or expresses a doubt, no matter how they qualify it, is a "kook".
I have an idea.
Why don't you put this issue to bed once and for all? Bring on Dr. David Ray Griffin, Dr. Niels Harrit, Architect Richard Gage, and perhaps Willie Rodriguez, then have your producers produce some non-kooky defenders of the official account to blow them out of the water with evidence and end the controversy. It would be a unique event in media history.
It might take some time to put such a show together, because defenders of the official account are not so thick on the ground, when it comes to having to appear in public, in a forum in which points are scored for the quality of your facts and logic and not so much for your epithets or amplitude. In fact they are astonishingly reluctant to show their faces, much less debate with the leading scholars and researchers of 9/11. They mostly prefer to use pithy labels, spoken in venues they control, where nobody is likely to object and would not be heard if they did.
It would be a landmark show. The issue of nano-thermite dust and residue in the roiling clouds that enveloped Manhattan, and what that might mean to the official conspiracy theory that it was done by 19 boxcutter-wielding arabs, backed up by a hirsute mastermind and a CIA-linked terrorist leader with bad kidneys in an Afghan cave, would make riveting television, and rock solid scientific discussion.
The issue of why buildings don't behave as those buildings did on that day, absent the assistance of significant quantities of explosive material, when addressed by professionals such as Dr. Harrit and Richard Gage, founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth.org) should prove every bit as interesting to your audience as it has been to the gatherings of professional architects and engineers, who have overwhelmingly signed on to his petition to investigate 9/11 after attending one of his talks. His membership of building professional passed the 1,000 mark recently.
Dr. David Ray Griffin is a walking encyclopedia of 9/11 fact, and a superb researcher, who can discuss why there are more than 25 direct contradictions between the government's official document from the 9/11 Commission and the public record, as well as a vast array of other inconsistencies.
Willie Rodriguez, as the last person to make it out of the South tower before it blew, can add amazing human interest from the perspective of one who put his own life at risk to save others that day, only to be shunned by his government when his perspective proved a bit too close to be taken in and his integrity resistant to being bought off by fame or fortune.
Other possibles include Craig Ranke, part of Citizens Investigation Team, who has documented serious issues with the account of events at the Pentagon.
I am sure with your resources you can bring on credible people who can argue with these gentlemen, given that the prevailing opinion supports the government story.
Here is an address where resides a growing list of over 1,800 credible critics of the official account, among whom I am proud to be counted:http://Patriotsquestion911.com/ . That is quite a collection of "kooks".
I hope you will take my proposal seriously. Understand that I propose it without the knowledge or consent of those persons listed as suggested participants, but given their recent history and genuine patriotism, I have a feeling they would be receptive. I credit you with a large percentage of the sum total of integrity possessed by our leading media figures. I trust you find this suggestion reasonable.

Medina strikes back after 9/11 comments
ABC News KTRK
Saturday, February 13th, 2010
One day after Republican candidate for governor Debra Medina’s insurgent campaign hit a speed bump, she’s striking back. After comments on Glenn Beck’s radio show Thursday that seemed to support 9/11 conspiracy theories, she says she was set up by her opponents.

Citizen Investigation Team
To whom it concerns, i.e., everyone:
In 2006 Citizen Investigation Team launched an independent investigation into the act of terrorism which took place at the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. This exhaustive three-year inquest involved multiple trips to the scene of the crime in Arlington, Virginia, close scrutiny of all official and unofficial data related to the event, and, most importantly, first-person interviews with dozens of eyewitnesses, many of which were conducted and filmed in the exact locations from which they witnessed the plane that allegedly struck the building that day.
Be forewarned: Our findings are extraordinarily shocking and frightening. They are also deadly serious, and deserving of your immediate attention. This is not about a conspiracy theory or any theory at all. This is about independent, verifiable evidence which unfortunately happens to conclusively establish as a historical fact that the violence which took place in Arlington that day was not the result of a surprise attack by suicide hijackers, but rather a false flag "black operation" involving a carefully planned and skillfully executed deception.
If you are skeptical of (or even incensed by) this statement we do not blame you. We are not asking you to take our word for it, nor do we want you to do that. We want you to view the evidence and see with your own eyes that this is the case. We want you to hear it directly from the eyewitnesses who were there, just as we did.
Please understand that this information is not being brought to your attention simply for educational purposes. It is presented within the context of a “call to action” accompanied by a detailed step-by-step strategy intended to inspire and empower you to do something about it. But first, please familiarize yourself with the evidence by viewing and paying close attention to the 81-minute video presentation, National Security Alert.
Thank you for your concern and thank you for your action.

Video: Actor/Comedian Hal Sparks Discusses the Absurdity of the Government's Official 9/11 Conspiracy Theory
From 911Blogger: http://www.911blogger.com/node/22523
Brian/WeAreChange - "During a fundraiser in New York, We Are Change activists Anthony from Ohio and Danny of New York got a chance to interview comedian/actor/game show host Hal Sparks. Sparks voiced his views on 9/11 truth. He discussed the 19 hijackers, building 7 and the fact that Bin Laden was a known CIA asset. Sparks stated that Americans have a responsibility to at least look deeper, you dont have to go all the way down the rabbit hole with some people, you also cant stick your head in the sand and that the vast majority of Americans are waking up. Sparks also commented on the co-op of the tea party movement by Glenn Beck. He also mentioned that Scott Brown the newly elected Republican Senator of Massachusetts had previously voted against further benefits for 9/11 workers. When asked about Glenn Becks slanderous comments about 9/11 Truth activists, Sparks stated Glenn Beck I think to some degree is mentally incapacitated He had much more to say about Glenn Beck, the details can be found in the video. On behalf of We Are Change and the 9/11 Truth movement, we thank Hal Sparks for his courage to speak truth to power."

9/11 Blueprint for Truth
We’re off to Washington DC! And we need your help…
AE911Truth flies to DC July 11th with a team of five to produce these events:
1. Sign Up Architects at Our AIA Booth
We will host a 10' x 10' exhibit booth at the DC Convention of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) – July 14, 15, and 16. We will be speaking to several hundred architects over the three-day period and giving them DVDs and brochures. We hope to sign up at least one hundred more architects on our website! Consider flying/driving to DC and helping us in our booth if you are in the area. You would need to competently convey the essential points of the explosive evidence at the 3 World Trade Center high-rises - while wearing professional attire. To find out more or RSVP, contact Dave Slesinger at 410-499-5403 and/or davidslesinger (at) yahoo.com.
We will also host room #141 in the Convention Center where our new 30-minute version of 9/11: Blueprint for Truth - Companion Edition will be playing every hour on the hour followed by live Q&A. We are making major inroads into the building professional community with these AIA conventions. The reverberations throughout the country, from San Francisco, where we started, to DC and beyond, have been and will be deep and penetrating. The AIA is already supporting us, though silently, by deliberately approving the AE911Truth booth at their events. We have also already been approved for the November AIA Richmond, Virginia event. We are all feeling that the dam of official denial might be about to break.
2. Speak at Busboys and Poets
On Thursday night 7/16 we will be speaking at 6pm and at 8pm at an unusual restaurant designed for this kind of event, called “Busboys and Poets.” See details below. Send the poster below to all your contacts in the area and let them know to bring their friends as well. We also hope to attract dozens of architects from the convention.
3. Speak to Congresspeople
Here is where we need you the most! On both Monday 7/13 and Friday 7/17we will be speaking individually to your Congressional Representatives and Senators. We have several appointments already and expect to have a couple of dozen appointments. The key is that you have to be there! Some of you may be able to drive or even fly out to DC to attend a meeting with your representative on these dates. And we will be there with you to make the 10- or 15-minute presentation at the appointment. We've done this a few times already and have it down now. The trick is that you have to be there as a constituent for us to have access. As soon as you have successfully made an appointment, call Dave Slesinger at 410-499-5403 and/or email him at davidslesinger (at)yahoo.com.
Don't worry about the schedule. Just make the appointment for any time on these two days that you can be there physically. Chances are you will only be able to make an appointment with a staffer. That's OK! You can call them and ask for a 15-minute appointment because you are bringing a representative of over 700 Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth — some of whom live in their district — who are all calling upon Congress for real investigation of the destruction of the 3World Trade Center high-rises on 9/11. And that you believe it is a matter of grave importance to the United States that this new explosive evidence be brought to their attention immediately.
How You Can Help from Home
If you can't make it to DC this month, then we ask that you support our critically important work with your generous financial contribution. Sales from our store cover only a small percentage of our expenses. We are a growing nonprofit corporation that has not yet developed its funding base. Now is the time for all of us to step forward. It will cost a total of $10,900 for this DC event alone. We have proceeded to plan for it, trusting that our supporters will be 100% behind us. Please show us that our faith in you is well placed. Make your one-time donation now (use the ChipIn button above), and let it stretch your comfort level just a little bit.
And if you haven't yet, please join the family of Sustaining Members as well, so that we can continue the winning streak that we are on. We must have an average of $35/month per member to realize our goals toward the awakening of the A/E profession and a real WTC investigation. Where do you fit into the picture? $10/mo? $100/mo? or more? Please find your giving level and claim it! Don’t keep us crawling toward the finish line of a real investigation when we can run in triumphantly and seize it. We travel every other weekend to cities across the US, Canada, Europe. Before this year is out, we will have traveled to Australia, New Zealand, and Japan for a 12-city AE911Truth speaking tour of these countries. The work never stops and, as you know, neither do we. This work requires your gift to make the incredible progress that results in this kind of mainstream media attention. Do your part so we can continue serving you and the passion which brought so many of you to sign the AE911Truth petition. Thank you for your awesome vote of confidence. Your donation will be tax-deductible if you make your check out to "Agape Foundation" and mail it today to AE911Truth 2342 Shattuck Ave., #189, Berkeley, CA 94707. Please feel free to call us at 510-292-4710 any time with any questions you may have. We are here to serve you, and we are grateful for your generosity!
