Establishment Prepares 9/11 Official Story Onslaught towers hit1

One look at your TV guide over the next 10 days will tell you everything you need to know about how petrified the establishment is over the flimsy credibility of the official 9/11 fable.

Naturally, the 10-year anniversary of the attacks would be expected to merit a deluge of media coverage, but what sticks out is the overbearing emphasis on countering so-called “conspiracy theories” about the events of that day, or in other words, reinforcing the official “conspiracy theory” that 19 poorly trained Arab hijackers were able to cripple America’s air defenses and make three giant steel-framed structures crumble to the ground at near free fall speed.Continue with rest of story here…

Keep Pentagon Spending on the Table-Dear Editor

The recession is, according to the official arbiters of such things, officially over. Can you tell?

Millions of people are still unemployed, and nearly every state and county in the country is struggling to fund health care, education, community safety, and even routine things like road maintenance.  The recession may be over on Wall Street, but it’s not over where we live.

New rules adopted by the House last week could have a long-lasting effect on our government’s ability to open the road to economic prosperity for millions of people who didn’t get a bailout. These rules allow Congress to increase the deficit by approving more tax cuts without having to consider their impact on the deficit. They also allow the chair of the House Budget Committee, Rep. Paul Ryan (WI), to bypass the usual bipartisan consultation and decide by himself how much, and in what areas, the House will recommend that the U.S. government spend the public’s money.

Ryan and other House leaders want to reduce federal spending only by cutting what’s called “domestic, non-security discretionary” spending. In other words, no cuts for the Pentagon. Federal spending currently supports many sectors of our economy, including agriculture, transportation, commerce, and programs that serve the most vulnerable people right now. Economists across the political spectrum agree that government investment in people during a recession is essential to recovery.

Meanwhile, the House leadership’s proposal exempts the Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security from cuts, despite the many experts who agree that substantial military spending cuts are both possible and desirable.


Take Action

The new House rules have changed the focus of the congressional debate from how to cut the deficit to how to cut federal spending for investing in our people and our future. House leaders have promised to hold votes each week on spending cuts. Please contact your representative to urge her or him to put Pentagon spending on the table when spending cuts are consideredas recommended by the bipartisan National Commission on the Deficit.

Last week, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates made headlines when he told members of Congress about his plan to cut programs from the military budget totaling $100 billion between 2012 and 2016. Cutting programs is not the same as cutting spending.  In fact, these “program cuts” would lead to a budget increase for the Pentagon in FY 2012. Find out how in this blog post from FCNL’s Ruth Flower.

Cut Pentagon spending, not public well-being

War is not the answer.

I understand and now you do, too!

A lot of people ask the question, why do they hate us so? This trailer from a new movie explains it in simple terms, it is a sociologist  outlining the thinking that has emerge around the world in their views of the Empire. As with every Empire that has ever existed, conquered people will never be your loyal subjects. The United States Imperialism has taken it into every Nation on earth and the countries that have what it wants are the ones we invade, either clandestinely or by making up false flag operations in order to have an excuse to invade for the bottom line of corporate greed.
