Tell the Global Banksters to go to Hell.
Time To Strike - video ~ link
I now have over 820 posts to this news blog. I wish to thank all my viewers for stopping by so often. This blog is kind of a ministry for me. Telling it like it is and battling the forces that seek to destroy the human race. With that in mind, here is a link to a powerful prayer to St. Michael the Archangel - video ~ link
Israel has moved its new Iron Dome anti-missile system to its northern border, even though the original plan was to deploy it in the south to intercept rockets fired from Gaza. The system is supposed to be up and running by June. “Making Iron Dome operational will transform Israel’s diplomatic and security situation,” says Israeli Defense Ministry director general Pinhas Buchris.
Given that Hezbollah has not fired a rocket at Israel since the summer of 2006, why would Tel Aviv move Iron Dome to the northern border unless it was to assure the Israeli public that it will not come under fire in the advent of a new war? In any case, Iron Dome is unlikely to transform anything, since anti-missile systems tend to be more about hype and hope than performance.
There is, of course, the possibility that the Israelis will bet the house and hit Lebanon, Syria and possibly Iran’s nuclear facilities. The rhetoric coming out of the Netanyahu government ties all three countries together, which is why Peled lumped Syria with Lebanon. The standard line coming out of Tel Aviv is that Iran is behind everything, including Hamas.Is a US attack on Iran imminent? ~ link ~ Even if the United States and Israel are primarily engaged at this point in a war of nerves, the political and military logic of their actions lead inexorably to war.
Yesterday the World Socialist Web Site reported on the Brookings Institution’s simulated war games in which Iran was the target (see: “Washington ratchets up war threats against Iran”). Teams of US officials—“playing” the US, Israel, Iran, and other regional powers—tried to determine the outcome of an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear plants. The war game tried to present the conflict as initially remaining limited to exchanges of targeted strikes between Israel and Iran.
US policymakers let it be known, however, that they envisaged ultimately mounting a massive assault on Iran. The war game was halted a week into the war—which, by then, had spread to Iranian or pro-Iranian groups in Lebanon, Israel, the Occupied Territories, the Arabian Peninsula, and the Persian Gulf—with the US preparing strikes to annihilate large sections of the Iranian military.
Israel to focus on key Iranian nuclear targets in any strike ~ link ~ Articles like this are simply pre-war propaganda. They paint a picture of the coming war as a limited, mostly one-sided effort, with little death and destruction. Pure bullshit!
Israeli Air Force conducts first ever missile defense system test ~ link ~ The way to overcome a high tech anti-missile defense system is to fire more missiles at it then it can handle. That is why there are 50-60,000 rockets and missiles in Lebanon aimed at Israel, plus hundreds to thousands more in Syria and Iran. The crazy Israeli policy of war, more war, and even more war will get the Israelis killed, along with most people in the Middle East and the world (as the next war becomes WWIII/Armageddon).
Israel To Allow Shoes Into Gaza After Three-Year Ban ~ link ~ What kind of sick bastards deny hundreds of thousands of people shoes!
A Group of British MPs seek review of arms exports to Israel ~ link ~ The Rt. Hon. David Miliband, MP is "close" to the Rothschilds and a very strong Zionist....one of the best British Foreign Secretaries that Israel ever had.
Britain's Foreign Secretary David Miliband said the government was looking into all existing licenses to see whether they adjust, adding that the U.K. had strong and effective export controls, The Guardian reported.
In April 2009 Miliband said that the U.K. would review all its weapons exports to Israel, in the wake of the Israel Defense Forces' recent offensive on the Gaza Strip.
Making a Killing: US-NATO Fuel New Arms Race in the Middle East ~ link ~ Historically, the build-up of weaponry in the Middle East has been attributed to well-founded suspicions that Israel possesses over 200 nuclear warheads and receives billions of dollars worth of military aid from the US every year.
But it now seems that the catalyst for a renewed arms race in the region is fear among Arab states of a nuclear-armed Iran.
Notwithstanding Iran’s consistent denial of such ambitions and the complete lack of evidence that it is seeking nuclear weapons, let alone being near to possessing such devices, the bogey-man image of the Islamic Republic is evidently a potent driver of military build-up in the region.
Now, here’s where it gets interesting. The top four arms suppliers to the region are the US, France, Germany and Britain – the very Western powers that are falling over themselves to warn the “international community” of the “threat posed by Iran”.
US-NATO Atrocities Committed in Afghanistan: How Did We Become This Pacified To War? ~ link ~ If the U.S. public looked long and hard into a mirror reflecting the civilian atrocities that have occurred in Afghanistan, over the past ten months, we would see ourselves as people who have collaborated with and paid for war crimes committed against innocent civilians who meant us no harm.
Some of us still let ourselves believe that the war can do some good in Afghanistan, that our leaders’ motives for escalating the war, however dominated by strategic economic concerns and geopolitical rivalries, still in some small part include the interests of the Afghan people.
There are others who know where this war will lead and know that our leaders know, and have simply become too fatigued, too drained of frightened tears by this long decade of nightmare, to hold those leaders accountable anymore for moral choices.
It’s worthwhile to wonder, how did we become this pacified?But far more important is our collective effort to approach the mirror, to stay in front of it, unflinching, and see the consequences of our mistaken acquiescence to the tragic mistakes of war, and then work, work hard, to correct our mistakes and nonviolently resist collaboration with war crimes.
Hillary Clinton slams Canada, leaves 'Global Warming' based Arctic summit ~ link ~ link ~ "What happens in the Arctic will have broad consequences for the earth and its climate. The melting of sea ice, glaciers and permafrost will affect people and ecosystems around the world,'' Clinton said.
US Treasuries sell-off raises sovereign debt fears ~ link ~ The yield on 10-year Treasuries – the benchmark price of global capital – surged 30 basis points in just two days last week to over 3.9pc, the highest level since the Lehman crisis. Alan Greenspan, ex-head of the US Federal Reserve, said the abrupt move may be "the canary in the coal mine", a warning to Washington that it can no longer borrow with impunity. He said there is a "huge overhang of federal debt, which we have never seen before".

US Stocks Soar - Many Analysts Ask WHY? ~ link ~ Smoke and Mirrors. The Stock Market is a controlled scam for the global banking cartel.
American healthcare "reform" is boom for India outsourcing companies ~ link ~ That this can even happen, using American taxpayer money to pay for offshore jobs when we have a Depression in America and up to 25% unemployment with another 25% underemployment, is outrageous. It is reflective of an attitude in Washington and among the corporate leaders in America that is very corrupt, very anti-American, and needs to ended. Strike on April 15 - 16- 17 - 18, take America back while we still can.
100 Million Americans Question or Find Fault with the Official 9/11 Story ~ link ~ I find this rather sad because it means, that subtracting children and others who may be unable to understand higher thought processes, about 100+ million Americans are either too scared to get outside of the box or just plain 'brain dead' and still believe the Official 9/11 Conspiracy Theory (that a 6'6" Arab sat in a cave in Afghanistan and got the USAF to stand down on 9/11 and changed the laws of physics for just that day). If you still believe the official nonsense, after all the in-depth articles supplying proof that it could not have happened the way they told us it did, then you are simply dumber than a rock.
Church reformers have second thoughts on Pope ~ link ~ I know Bill Burleigh who is mentioned in this article, we have close relatives in common and I trust his judgment, but I still feel that it is imperative that Pope Benedict XVI end celibacy. Burleigh, the former president of E.W Scripps Co., owner of a chain of American newspapers, said he is inclined to believe the Vatican explanation.
"I think he's getting a bum rap on a lot of things," he said of the pope. "I'm just not very quick to jump to the judgment that a lot of people want to seem to jump to at the moment. A lot of things, we don't know."
Keeping the Record Straight on Pope Benedict XVI and the Crisis ~ link ~ This is a very good article and is a 'must read' for the background of what is happening. I do feel that Pope Benedict XVI is taking it on the chin, and that some of the current attacks on him are unfair. However, I do feel that he is a long time insider in the Vatican and he and others have not handled the problem well at all. They have a really major institutional problem in that they have, at least in many nations, up to 50% of priests who are homosexuals. That is most certainly not what Christ intended for His priesthood and it is a continuing invitation to more "problems" of a sexual nature within the priesthood. It is long past time to end the man-made rules of celibacy for priests and bishops. It is long past time to dismiss priests who are hiding behind their Roman Collar and simply do not believe in Catholic Dogma. It is long past time to weed out the more active homosexuals in the priesthood.
Vatican defends the Pope in US lawsuit ~ link ~ In court documents obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press, lawyers map out a three-pronged strategy — to be formally filed in coming weeks — seeking to dismiss the suit before can be questioned or secret documents subpoenaed.
Vatican lawyers plan to argue that the pope has immunity as head of state, that American bishops who oversaw abusive priests weren't employees of the Vatican, and that a 1962 document is not the "smoking gun" that provides proof of a cover up, the documents reveal.

Fears grow as study shows genetically modified food crops 'can cause liver and kidney damage' ~ link ~ This will not in any way slow down the major global agricultural firms from expanding this highly profitable sector of their business operations.
You can both go hang, say voters in UK ~ link ~ People do not want Gordon Brown as their Prime Minister for another five years but have no enthusiasm for the Conservative Party, according to an opinion poll for The Independent.
The ComRes survey suggests the mood of the nation is one of "a plague on both your houses" as Labour and the Tories struggle to inspire voters ahead of a general election expected on 6 May. According to the poll, the Tories have halted a recent slip in their fortunes and now enjoy a seven-point lead, up two points on last month. They are on 37 per cent (no change), Labour on 30 per cent (down two points), the Liberal Democrats on 20 per cent (up one point) and other parties on 13 per cent (up one).
Tony Blair praises Gordon Brown and Alistair Darling ahead of election ~ link ~ Wow, that will really help Brown ...NOT. Anyone stupid enough to believe anything that Phony Tony says is stupid enough to already be voting Labour.
