The public is a threat need to be counter.

John Pilger Interviews Wikileaks' Julian Assange.

RevolutionNewsDotUS | December 20, 2010 | John Pilger: Global Support for WikiLeaks is "Rebellion" Against U.S. Militarism, Secrecy...

The award-winning investigative journalist and documentary filmmaker John Pilger is one of many high-profile public supporters of Julian Assange and his organization WikiLeaks. Pilger has attended Assange's court proceedings in London and has offered to contribute funds for his more than $300,000 bail. Pilger's latest film, The War You Don't See, includes interviews with Assange. Pilger says that WikiLeaks is revolutionizing journalism and galvanizing public opinion to stand up to global elites.

John Pilger, Award-winning investigative journalist and documentary filmmaker who has written close to a dozen books and made more than 50 documentaries. His latest film, which premiered last night on television and in theaters in Britain, is called The War You Don't See.

Another scandalous plea bargain using WikiLeaker to get WikiLeaks!

Freed on bail – but US steps up efforts to charge Assange with conspiracy
Accused soldier offered plea bargain if he names WikiLeaks founder

US authorities have stepped up their efforts to prosecute Julian Assange (pic) by offering Bradley Manning (pic), the American soldier allegedly responsible for leaking hundreds of thousands of government documents, the possibility of a plea bargain if he names the Wiki-Leaks founder as a fellow conspirator.

The development follows claims by Mr Assange's supporters that a grand jury has been secretly empanelled in northern Virginia to consider indicting the WikiLeaks chief. But the US Justice Department has refused to comment on any grand jury activity.

As Mr Assange arrived last night at the East Anglia mansion after his release from a London prison on bail, he said he considered the threat of US legal action to be "extremely serious" even though "they have yet to be confirmed". He told Sky News: "We have heard today from one of my US lawyers that there may be a US indictment for espionage for me coming from a secret grand jury investigation. "There are obviously serious attempts to take down the content by taking us down as an organisation and taking me down as an individual."

WikiLeaks and the NWO - the role played by the MSM.

WikiLeads and the Cablegate, that had been the preoccupation of the global MSM (main-stream-medias). What ever role each had played either portraying Julian Assange as the hero or the villain - thats not relevant(*1), one thing for sure - this is relevant, the winners are the stake holders - in the pursuant and glory of the NWO. The winners are the neo-cons and Zionist Christians, headed by those in the White House and the Zionist Jews headed by those in the Knesset.

Many people are seeing the full force of American hands and power on Julian Assange as the conspiracy, bend into dragging him into a court and detention, cutting off his funding by stopping credit cards and cyber companies from collecting donations funding him, pressuring hosting companies into not hosting his sites. Thats looking inwardly into Julian Assange and the going ons. Nonetheless we should also look at the "cablegate" per se, what and how the leaks are released.

What is released, selectively and progressively, appeared to be notes akin to gossips from the diplomatic corps circles as one Malaysian beleaguered politician phrase it. The quality of the cables from the US embassies around the world were of low quality in terms of issues and how the issues were handled, to the extend that there one respectable man said that the cables revealed that the US diplomat mentality is infantile and the reflect the US diplomats retarded view of the world.  However the Israel and MSM took every opportunity to present to the world the Israeli and American foreign policy, what in the independent UK reporter called it "computer screen journalism". It only provide Julian Assange more credibility when VoA appeared to make Americans felt distasteful of Julian Assange using character assassination and another individual by ascribing the whole WikiLead operation is done by gays .

will continue later.

Let us now, see why :
1. The Zionist Jews connections -
Why nothing from Tel Aviv :

Selective released :

Omni truth

2. The lack of respects for the Muslims & Arabs public opinion -
Looking at leaders :

Pursuing aggressive agenda :

3. Intensified Cries for war on terror (read Islam) -
See MSM closing statement:
Proceeding with propaganda where Bush failed

Claw back on Labour's DW Miliband policy

Public opinion :

4. An opium to forget America & Europe financial woes -
Qualitative Easing (QE) :

Financial Attack on Euro :

5. and forgive financial terrorist -

Rejecting American Solutions to Europe's problems

(*1): This does not mean that I do not support free speech and liberty that should be accorded to Julian Assange just like anybody else. I do not agree and condone any ill treatment meted out on Julian Assange whether it psychological, social, economic (financial), political or physical.

Beginning of the end for net neutrality? Two Leaks on WikiLeaks:-

RTAmerica | December 08, 2010 - As a result of WikiLeaks, the Obama Administration may introduce a new bill that would allow government officials the ability to spy on Americans through the internet. Meanwhile, an army of hackers rally behind WikiLeaks by shutting down MasterCard and PayPal because they stopped all payments to WikiLeaks. Investigative journalist Wayne Madsen says we could see massive government surveillance of our personal computers, phones and surveillance of our internet activities.

WikiLeaks 'struck a deal with Israel'

A number of commentators, particularly in Turkey and Russia, have been wondering why the hundreds of thousands of American classified documents leaked by the website last month did not contain anything that may embarrass the Israeli government, like just about every other state referred to in the documents. The answer appears to be a secret deal struck between the WikiLeaks “heart and soul”, as Assange humbly described himself once [1], with Israeli officials, which ensured that all such documents were 'removed' before the rest were made

China : US hypocrisy, critical on human rights but happy to do business.

RT | 10 Dec 2010 - When it comes to human rights in China, the US talks tough but rarely takes action. But, the US is happy to do business in China.

"We are also here to remind our friends in the Chinese government that you cannot suppress the human spirit, that freedom yearns to express itself. Xie xie," Congressman Dennis Kucinich, a Democrat from Ohio, told the crowd amid applause.

But Washington's dependence on Beijing economically and its eagerness to sell billions of dollars in arms to Taiwan, Japan and South Korea highlight the US's hypocrisy when it comes to human rights.

Medea Benjamin, founder of CODEPINK and a peace activist who has worked on human rights issues in China, said successive administrations have selectively criticized human rights in China not only for moral reasons, but for defense dollars as well.

"The US military needs an enemy," Benjamin said."One of the things that the US wants to do is continue the arms trade, and selling $6 billion in arms to Taiwan is part and parcel of this fearmongerin. All that fearmongering is being used to create a stronger weapons industry."

Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange is arrested for "Sex Without a Condom"

Arrest Warrant for "Sex Crimes" Against Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange Is for "Sex Without a Condom", NOT Non-Consensual Rape Using Force

Interpol has issued an arrest warrant for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for "sex crimes".
Everyone assumed it was for rape.
But it turns out it was for violating an obscure Swedish law against having sex without a condom.
As Newsweek wrote in August:
A Swedish lawyer representing two women whose allegations triggered a sexual-misconduct investigation of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has given [Newsweek column] Declassified the first on-the-record confirmation of the allegations that led to the issuance—and then rapid cancellation—of a warrant on a rape charge and to a parallel investigation into alleged “molestation." Claes Borgstrom of the Stockholm law firm Borgstrom and Bostrom, who is representing two women who said they had sexual relationships with Assange, said his clients complained to the police of Assange's reluctance to use condoms and unwillingness to be tested for sexually transmitted disease.

Entire construct of the European Union is broken!

'4 Bln Euros vanish from EU budget annually'

RussiaToday | November 28, 2010 - Gripped by protests and crisis, EU nations are being forced to fend for themselves. It is time to go back to the drawing board, before it is too late, believes Nirj Deva, MEP, UK Conservative Party. He says the entire construct of the European Union is becoming unmanageable."The construct is incapable of meeting the challenges of the 21st Century. It was constructed after the war - Churchill's 'Empires of the Mind' in a single European space. It was constructed to prevent a major war in the Continental Europe by locking Germany, France and all the other countries into single space with settled values - democratic, pluralistic - diverse, but accountable values," Deva told RT. "Now it needs a new construct to be able to work in cooperation with Russia, with primary energy producers and suppliers, to work as a good neighbor in areas such as Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus and so on. We need therefore a much more flexible construct," he added.

Discussing American madness :: The Anti-American Manifesto.

'Re-distributed bailout would mean $350,000 per American'

"The Anti-American manifesto is addressing the fact that neither the Democrats nor the Republicans are able or willing to address the biggest problems facing the US today, which are the economy, the environment, healthcare and the wars," Rall told RT. "And now you have to ask yourself as an American do you want to tolerate the system that is unresponsive and not going to go anywhere or do you want to change it. The Anti-American Manifesto is not anti-American, it is anti the American government, or more specifically, this American government. We can do better and that's what I want to do."

NATO Summit :: It wasn't just talk politics, was it?

RussiaToday | November 24, 2010 - Georgia's parliamentary opposition is demanding an investigation into allegations of a racy scandal involving the country's delegation to the recent NATO summit in Lisbon. According to Portuguese "Correio da Manha" newspaper, the Georgians hired 80 prostitutes to attend a huge party at a posh hotel in Lisbon. According to the newspaper, French president Nicolas Sarkozy, who was staying in the same hotel, was outraged by the noise so the party had to stop. Georgian media are citing a source in Moscow as saying that the publication in "Correio da Manha" was paid for by Russia. However, they do not dispute the fact that the controversial party indeed took place.

'Koreas clash could turn into Gulf War III':

RussiaToday | November 23, 2010 - South Korea has admitted it fired artillery shells that triggered an early morning clash with North Korea. However it says it was part of a military drill and denied it was directed at the North. Earlier Seoul blamed the North for what it called an unprovoked shelling of its island. Pyongyang claimed the South had violated its maritime border during the military drills. Seoul has since threatened its neighbour with what it called 'enormous retaliation'. For more insight, RT talks to Glyn Ford, former MEP and author of 'North Korea on the Brink: Struggle for Survival'.

Koreas in border artillery clash.

The BBC's John Sudworth explains how the cross-border clash developed

South Korea says it has returned fire after North Korea fired dozens of artillery shells at one of its border islands, killing two marines.
The South's military was placed on its highest non-wartime alert after the shells landed on Yeonpyeong island.
Pyongyang accused the South of firing first. The Southern military said it had conducted exercises but shelling was directed away from the North.
This is one of the worst clashes since the Korean War ended, analysts say.
There have been occasional cross-border incidents since the conflict ended without a peace treaty in 1953, but the latest comes at a time of rising regional tension.

The chairman of the group said it was "outraged" at the alleged thefts.

It had detected the matter itself and contacted the FBI.

Following weeks of allegations, we bring you two reports filmed over the last year, which delve deep into the murky private life of Silvio Berlusconi. Has it been one sex scandal too many for the beloved 'cavalier'?

"In my life I have never had to give money for sexual services as someone who enjoys conquering, the greatest joy and satisfaction is the conquest." Berlusconi's charm found him a place in the hearts of the Italian people. Yet as the Prime Minister's penchant for the fairer sex begins to be a national security threat; and the sex stories get more and more sordid, has the future of Italy been sealed by a sordid kiss?

The Secret Iraq Files

AlJazeeraEnglish | October 23, 2010 - It is the biggest leak of military secrets ever. Al Jazeera has obtained access to almost 400,000 classified American documents. Torture, claims of murder at the checkpoint - revelations that make a mockery of the rules of combat.

Over the past ten weeks, working with the Bureau of Investigative Journalism in London, Al Jazeera has read tens of thousands of documents, which we sourced through WikiLeaks.

There is a good reason that Washington did not want you to see them. They reveal the covering up of Iraqi state torture to the truth about the hundreds of civilians who have been killed at coalition road blocks.

There are fresh outrages involving private security contractors and we find out what the US really thinks about the Iraqi prime minister.

US Contractors Hired Afghan Warlords.

RevolutionNewz | October 08, 2010 - Contractors working for the Pentagon "funneled US taxpayer dollars to Afghan warlords and strongmen linked to murder, kidnapping, and bribery, as well as to Taliban and anti-coalition activities," says a congressional report released Thursday.

A year-long investigation into private contractors in Afghanistan, carried out by the Senate Armed Services Committee, found, among other things, a contractor that had two alleged Iranian spies on its payroll, and another contractor who hired two rival Taliban-linked warlords, only to see one kill the other in an ambush.

The report (PDF, 32MB), which looked at 125 defense contracts over three years, provides further evidence that the coalition war effort in Afghanistan may be becoming a lucrative source of financing for the very groups the coalition is fighting.

Claims that security contractors have been paying bribes to the Taliban have been around for the better part of the year. And this summer the New York Times reported on evidence of "all-out collusion" between some security contractors and Afghan insurgents.

One contractor on which the new congressional report focuses extensively is ArmorGroup, which the report alleges hired two rival warlords, one of them Taliban-linked, to guard the Shindand airbase in Herat province. ArmorGroup referred to the two warlords as "Mr. White" and "Mr. Pink," in reference to the violent criminal characters in Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs.

When Being Poor Is a Crime.

Sean Matthews is a homeless construction worker who was convicted of marijuana possession in 2007, and was assessed $498 in legal fines and costs. He was arrested two years later after being unable to pay that $498, and spent five months in jail at a cost of more than $3,000 to the City of New Orleans.

Gregory White, also a homeless man, was arrested for stealing $39 worth of food from a local grocery store. He was assessed $339 in fines and fees. Because he could not pay the $339, the City of New Orleans imprisoned Mr. White for 198 days at a cost of over $3,500 to the city.

You can see where this is going. In a time when states are laying off school teachers and firefighters, cities and counties are locking up people who can't pay legal fees, at costs that exceed the actual amount owed.

Indians, Asians - the want to be white!

A whiter shade of pale - India's skin-whitening cosmetic industry is worth billions of dollars and growing, but not all of the products are safe.

02 Sep 2010. Aljazeera - In India, real beauty is proving to be skin deep with a massive growth in the sale of skin-whitening creams.

India's obsession with pale skin has created a billion-dollar industry, with predictions it will grow in 2010 by 25 per cent.

Endorsed by top Bollywood stars in TV ads, marketers lure consumers with a bewildering supply of products that promote fair skin that they promote with bring romance or a new job after the user becomes markedly fairer.

Skin-lightening products aimed at Indian men are also booming with marketers constantly adding new products including whitening soaps, moisturisers and aftershaves.

The desire for pale skin has deep roots in India's complex caste-driven history. Those higher up the scale were typically fair-skinned while lower castes often worked outdoors and were darker skinned.

101 East looks at India's billion-dollar skin whitening industry and asks, can there be fairness in India, without fair skin?

From the world's biggest embassy !

Cost of Iraq's 'new era':

AlJazeeraEnglish | August 28, 2010

The US government has said that the change of military strategy in Iraq is a "new era" for the country.

Operation Iraqi Freedom will become Operation New Dawn from Wednesday.

This means fewer soldiers in the country, but more diplomats who will be living in the world's biggest embassy in Baghdad.

The embassy stretches across 2km and and 104 acres of land - six times the size of the UN headquarters and bigger than the Vatican.

Along with four new regional offices it will house nearly 2,500 diplomats, protected by as many as 7,000 private security guards.

For travel anywhere outside of the embassy, the diplomats have a new fleet of armoured cars, trucks and special aircraft.

All this will cost the US $2.5bn next year, over and above the costs of maintaining a military force of 50,000 American soldiers.

SenateDemocrats | June 30, 2010 - Senate Democrats today asked unanimous consent to pass legislation that would give the BP Oil Spill Commission the subpoena power it needs to do its job. "Frankly, it's time we have a vote after so many Republican objections to this commonsense legislation," said Sen. Robert Menendez. "[This bill] asserts that we want to protect those families, taxpayers, not oil company profits."

The Political Economy of Israel's Occupation.

TheRealNews | July 06, 2010 - Hever: 18 families control 60% of Israel's wealth.

Comments by kharitonov300 : Nice to see normal people in Israel, not totally brainwashed crying "everybody want to kill us"

So basically these "loopholes" allow big time criminals (prob banksters) to come to Israel and become heroes.

And the 18 familys are running the show and making all the money, while the rest are screaming "terrorist want to kill us all" and signing up to the IDF and hating on muslims. Wow Israel need to slap herself in the face and wake up.

Humanitarian Aid Now an Act of Terror!

RT America - The U.S. Supreme Court upheld a law that prevents Americans and American human rights groups from supporting known terrorists groups.

In a 6-3 ruling on Monday, the High Court reversed a U.S. appeals court ruling that stated that parts of the law were "unconstitutionally vague."

"The law bars knowingly providing any service, training, expert advice or assistance to any foreign organization designated by the U.S. State Department as terrorist," reported Reuters. "The law, which carries a penalty of up to 15 years in prison, does not require any proof the defendant intended to further any act of terrorism or violence by the foreign group." VIDEO BELOW:
