Chavez pointing a finger to his nemesis?

Chavez says US might be behind Latin American leaders´ cancer.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is using his cancer to take a jab at the US. On Wednesday, he speculated America might have developed a way to give Latin American leaders the disease, after Argentina's Cristina Fernandez joined the list of presidents diagnosed. The controversial statement is typical of Venezuela's socialist leader, who underwent surgery in June to remove a tumor from his pelvis.

Hugo Chavez, Venezuelan President, said, "Would it be strange if they had developed the technology to induce cancer and nobody knew about it until now? And we found out about it 50 or who knows how many years from now? I don't know. I'm just reflecting, but this is very, very strange that we have all got cancer."

America creates its own enemies

Combine with "manufactured enemies". . Funnny enough I'm feeling than the interviewer is pro Israel & anti-Islam? 

 Uploaded by RussiaToday on 13 Nov 2011 - Americans are in the crosshairs of terrorists worldwide purely due to Washington's policy in the Muslim world, not because there is an Islamic enemy whose only aim is to kill Americans for their freedoms and lifestyle, insists a former CIA officer. Historian Michael Scheuer, an author of "Through our enemies' eyes", who worked for the agency for over 20 years till 2004 and at one time was the chief of the CIA's 'Bin Laden unit', says America's greatest enemy -- radical Islam -- never existed: neither when Bin Laden was alive, nor now.

Man in al-Qa'ida arrest wins £20,000 payout.

A student who was wrongfully arrested on suspicion of being a terrorist after downloading an edited copy of The al-Qa'ida Training Manual for his PhD course, has been paid £20,000 in compensation by police. 

 Rizwaan Sabir, 26, who is now researching domestic UK counter-terrorism policy at the University of Strathclyde, was held for seven days in 2008 by Nottinghamshire Police after downloading the document, which is available on Amazon, from a US government website while studying at the University of Nottingham. 

 "For more than three years, I have been fighting to clear my name and establish that the police were wrong to arrest me and put me through the tortuous experience I suffered at their hands," said Mr Sabir. He added that he cannot forget "all those other innocent people like me who have suffered at the hands of the police but do not have the chance or means to vindicate their names". 

 The Chief Constable of Nottinghamshire Police agreed to pay the compensation for Mr Sabir's....

China’s New Lucrative Business: Dead Babies Turn into Stamina Booster Pills.

A South Korean SBS TV documentary team accuses Chinese pharmaceutical companies of selling dead baby pills as stamina boosters. 

The team reveals that the truth behind the dead baby pill is horrific and disturbing. Chinese hospitals and abortion clinics that are connected to the business immediately notify pharmaceutical companies when a baby dies, mostly because of a still birth or an abortion. The companies purchase the baby corpses and store them in some family’s refrigerator to avoid suspicion.

The next step in this highly secretive process is putting the corpses in a medical drying microwave and grinding them into pills (pic). The ground baby powder is then put in a capsule, ready to be sold as a stamina enhancer, according to the SBS team. 

 The Korean team acquired the dead baby capsules and ran DNA tests on it. The test results reportedly indicated the pills were 99.7 percent human. The test also found hair and nail remnants, and even the gender of the baby could be identified. The process will be aired with visuals in the SBS TV documentary on Aug. 6, 2011 in South Korea.

That's one expensive car crash: Hapless blonde crashes her £250,000 Bentley into a Merc, Porsche, Ferrari and Aston Martin.

It was a line-up of the finest supercars in one of the world's wealthiest hotspots.

But what started as a parade of high-priced horsepower turned into an impromptu game of demolition derby - when a hapless blonde scraped her £250,000 Bentley Azure down the side of a £75,000 Mercedes S Class.

What followed in the Monte Carlo's Place du Casino was every insurance company's nightmare.

Smashing: The hapless blonde scraped her £250,000 Bentley Azure down the side of a £75,000 Mercedes S Class, crashed into a £140,000 Ferrari F430, before going head on into an £80,000 Porsche 911 and a £140,000 Aston Martin Rapide
Smashing: The hapless blonde (pictured in the car on the left) scraped her Bentley Azure down the side of a Mercedes S Class, crashed into a Ferrari F430, then went head on into a Porsche 911 and Aston Martin Rapide

Her 2.7 tonne beast then crashed into a £140,000 black Ferrari F430, before going head on into an £80,000 Porsche 911 and a £140,000 Aston Martin Rapide.

The driver, and her two passengers, then had the humiliation of watching hundreds of tourists circle the scene as they were unable to open the doors of the British-built convertible.

It is estimated the crash will cost more than £40,000 with the Ferrari, Porsche and Aston Martin requiring new front wings and bumpers. The Bentley will need the same repairs, plus a new door.

July 16, 2011

By MJ Rosenberg

A longtime CIA officer who spent 21 years in the Middle East is predicting that Israel will bomb Iran this fall, dragging the United States into another major war and endangering U.S. military and civilian personnel (and other interests) throughout the Middle East and beyond.

Robert Baer made his prediction on the provocative KPFK Los Angeles show Background Briefing, hosted by Ian Masters.

Baer has had a storied career, including a stint in Iraq in the 1990s where he organized opposition to Saddam Hussein. (He was recalled after being accused of trying to organize Saddam’s assassination). Upon his retirement, he received a top decoration for meritorious service. Incidentally, George Clooney won an Oscar for playing a character based on Baer in the filmSyriana (Baer also wrote the book).

James Ridgeway, “Mass Psychosis in the U.S.”

“Has America become a nation of psychotics? You would certainly think so, based on the explosion in the use of antipsychotic medications. In 2008, with over $14 billion in sales, antipsychotics became the single top-selling therapeutic class of prescription drugs in the United States, surpassing drugs used to treat high cholesterol and acid reflux.

Once upon a time, antipsychotics were reserved for a relatively small number of patients with hard-core psychiatric diagnoses - primarily schizophrenia and bipolar disorder - to treat such symptoms as delusions, hallucinations, or formal thought disorder. Today, it seems, everyone is taking antipsychotics. Parents are told that their unruly kids are in fact bipolar, and in need of anti-psychotics, while old people with dementia are dosed, in large numbers, with drugs once reserved largely for schizophrenics. Americans with symptoms ranging from chronic depression to anxiety to insomnia are now being prescribed anti-psychotics at rates that seem to indicate a national mass psychosis.

It is anything but a coincidence that the explosion in antipsychotic use coincides with the pharmaceutical industry's development of a new class of medications known as "atypical antipsychotics." Beginning with Zyprexa, Risperdal, and Seroquel in the 1990s, followed by Abilify in the early 2000s, these drugs were touted as being more effective than older antipsychotics like Haldol and Thorazine. More importantly, they lacked the most noxious side effects of the older drugs - in particular, the tremors and other motor control problems.

White House worker and Air National Guardsman among 26,000 leaked porn website subscribers.

Several U.S. government and military employees are set for an embarrassing day at work today after hackers published the emails of over 25,000 subscribers to an x-rated porn website - including four who signed up using .gov and .mil addresses.

The government employees - one of whom signed up using his White House work address - include an Air National Guardsman and two army employees as well as officials from the Malaysian government.

The hack was carried out by a group calling themselves Lulz Security, or LulzSec, who obtained the email addresses and passwords from site Pron before publishing the complete list on Friday afternoon.

The group, who are self styled pranksters hacking and publishing details for 'fun', wrote on the top of the release: 'Hi! We like porn (sometimes), so these are email/password combinations from pron.com which we plundered for the lulz.'

LuzSec also told their followers to exploit the release for further embarrassment.

LulzSec urged their followers to tell friends and family members of those who had their details released by logging on to Facebook using the password and user name combinations.

I wonder what the US Administration makes of the idiom that includes the words pot, kettle and black.

The reason for this recent musing comes from revelations that a stash of pornography was found during the infamous Abbottabad raid in Pakistan by US Navy seals.

Not only did the Obama gang boast that they’d finally got the world’s most wanted man but they gleefully revealed a few days later that among the “millions” of intelligence documents was a pile of porn.

Of course we’ve not seen an ounce of evidence to support either of these claims, so not surprisingly there are those demanding that the Americans either ‘put up or shut up’.

Obama argues he will not release pictures depicting the al-Qaida leader’s death because they are too graphic and could offend and inflame Muslims across the world.

It’s an odd argument since he then sees no problem in allowing people to think the al Qaida leader wiled away his days with his head buried in dirty magazines.

But quite frankly, ever since the WMD lies peddled by the US Government to justify the invasion and war in Iraq were exposed most people hold a healthy scepticism towards any official statements coming out of Capitol Hill

Making a Killing:

Dec 13, 2010 - This video provides the facts about psychotropic drugs and the huge profits they create for the pharmaceutical industry. These drugs are not safe and have not been on the market long enough to provide sufficient long term studies regarding their effects. These drugs do cause addiction, however most "doctors" would call this dependence because you do not have to take an increasing dose over time. They are completely fine with you being addicted to the same amount of any given drug on a daily basis. Over half of the people that commit suicide in the United States are prescribed to psychotropic drugs. (Ex: Paxil, Zoloft, Wellbutrin, Effexor, Seroquil, etc.)

You are NOT allowed to commit suicide: Workers in Chinese iPad factories forced to sign pledges .

Factories making sought-after Apple iPads and iPhones in China are forcing staff to sign pledges not to commit suicide, an investigation has revealed.At least 14 workers at Foxconn factories in China have killed themselves in the last 16 months as a result of horrendous working conditions.Many more are believed to have either survived attempts or been stopped before trying at the Apple supplier's plants in Chengdu or Shenzen.

Appalling conditions: An investigation by two NGOs has found new workers at Foxconn factories in China are made to sign a 'no suicide' pledge
Appalling conditions: An investigation by two NGOs has found new workers at Foxconn factories in China are made to sign a 'no suicide' pledge

After a spate of suicides last year, managers at the factories ordered new staff to sign pledges that they would not attempt to kill themselves, according to researchers. And they were made to promise that if they did, their families would only seek the legal minimum in damages.

An investigation of the 500,000 workers by the Centre for Research on Multinational Companies and Students & Scholars Against Corporate Misbehaviour (Sacom) found appalling conditions in the factories.

They claimed that:
  1. Excessive overtime was rife, despite a legal limit of 36 hours a month. One payslip showed a worker did 98 hours of overtime in one month, the Observer reported.
  2. During peak periods of demand for the iPad, workers were made to take only one day off in 13.
  3. Badly performing workers were humiliated in front of colleagues.
  4. Workers are banned from talking and are made to stand up for their 12-hour shifts.

Hate Comes to Orange County.

(ANAHEIM, CA, 3/2/11) -- The Greater Los Angeles Area office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-LA) today released a video of a rally organized by anti-Muslim bigots to protest a February fundraising event held by an American Muslim relief group for relief work and charity in the U.S.

A few hundred protesters showed up to the rally, which was sponsored by groups such as: "We Surround Them OC 912" (a local Tea Party group), Rabbi David Eliezrie of Chabad - Yorba Linda, North Orange County Conservative Coalition, ACT! for America, and Pamela Geller (whose group "Stop the Islamization of America" has been designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center).

Elected officials Congressmen Ed Royce and Gary Miller, and Villa Park Councilwoman Deborah Pauly also attended and spoke at the protest rally.

The event -- held at Yorba Linda Community Center, a facility that has been frequented by Muslim families and businesses over the years -- first became a target of anti-Muslim bigots over two of the fundraiser's speakers, who were to speak on the importance of charity in Islam. Initial attempts of some groups to have the Yorba Linda Community Center and the Yorba Linda City Council cancel the fundraising event failed, followed by the protest.

Man stabbed to death by cockfighting bird

People watch a cockfight in Jagiroad, India (file image)
In organised cockfights, razor-sharp knives are often attached to the limbs of the fighting birds

A man attending an illegal cockfight in California died after being stabbed in the leg by one of the birds, officials have said.
The cock had a knife attached to its limb to take part in the gambling fight in Tulare County, central California.
Jose Luis Ochoa, 35, was declared dead in hospital where he arrived some two hours after being injured.
The coroner's report said he had suffered an accidental "sharp force injury" to his right calf.
It was not immediately clear if a delay in seeking medical attention was a factor in the death.
"I have never seen this type of incident," Sgt Martin King, who had worked in the sheriff's department for more than two decades, told the Bakersfield Californian on Sunday, when the incident happened.
Other dead roosters and materials suggesting cockfighting were found at the location, reports said, but no arrests were made.
Mr Ochoa, reportedly a regular participant in organised cockfights, had already been fined for owning or training an animal for fighting, according to court records cited by the newspaper.
Though cockfighting is illegal in the US, California is a popular destination state for people involved in the sport as raising the gamecocks, organising matches and attending fights as a spectator are all classified as misdemeanours on the first offence, rather than more serious criminal offences in the state.

Double standard of mainstream media

RTAmerica | January 31, 2011 - Similar protests are treated differently in the American mainstream media. RT's Anastasia Churkina takes a look at why riots are seen as "democracy" in Egypt, and "chaos" in Britain.

Who is setting the news agenda in the west?

The western main stream media (MSM) was attempting to use facebook messages & twitter to 'sell' the green revolution. MSM alledged that tweets &  facebook messages were coming from the crowds in the protest itself. Yet citizens of the world were not keen to 'buy' those news. They know that the MSM were acting to the fancies of their masters.

In the case of the 'burning man' and 'Egytian puppet' revolutions - tweets &  facebook messages were actually coming from the crowds there, yet the MSM were slow to react, of course the whole world knew that, it was working the bidding of their masters. The throne at stake belongs to the clients of the arrogant powers! So was the apparent lackadaisical MSM response, MSM do not dare to play an active role.

Thus the social media (SM) come to the rescue. But these SMs are also doing the MSM a favour and more vocal at it,as time passed by, such as the of naming the revolution as "pro democracy". Take off your straight jacket and throw away your narrow vision. To be precise let me name your one channel, American based is the main culprit - "Democracy Now". What democracy are these SM talking about? Wake up, "your democracy" is the problem - not the solution! Yes those revolutionaries want to choose their own leaders - that the democracy they wanted. They do not want "American Financial Capitalist Democracy". Look at the students and workers in Europe - they have taken to the streets in rejecting "American Financial Capitalist Democracy". Now get off your "pro-democracy" tirade - stop selling "American Financial Capitalist Democracy"... all of us know what those people in the protest want - to kick out those Foreign Leaders Lackeys - Mubarak and the likes out of their offices and get a more people friendly, concerned leaders.

29 January 2011 : Vyonne Ridley : Who is setting the news agenda in the west?

Superstitious home owners may balk at the idea of taking up residence at number 13, but an analysis of home insurance claimed someone living at number 243 would be more than twice as likely to make a claim.

Some 45 per cent of people living at number 243 have made a claim in the past four years, while ahead of number 201 with 36 per cent and number one with 34 per cent.

In comparison just 18 per cent of people living at number 13 claimed on their insurance during the same period.

Belmarsh - Britain's Guantanamo Bay?

Will Julian Assange end up here? RT @wikileaks: J Assange case has been moved to the "terrorism" court at Belmarsh Jan 11, 2011

You don't have to go to Cuba to find terror suspects controversially imprisoned. Nine foreigners have been held in London's Belmarsh Prison for almost three years without charge or trial. So is it the UK's Guantanamo Bay?

Protest banner
Protesters have made their
 views known
In December 2001 nine foreign nationals were removed from their families by police and taken to Belmarsh Prison in south east London. They have been held there ever since and still do not know why.

The detainees are unable to see the intelligence evidence against them and are confined to their cells for up to 22 hours a day. Their solicitors say they have been "entombed in concrete".

The men are being held under anti-terror laws bought in following September 11, which allow the home secretary to detain without trial foreign nationals he suspects of terrorism, but cannot deport because it would endanger their life.

To date a total of 17 foreigners have been detained, 11 of whom are still being held - mainly in Belmarsh. It has prompted human rights organisations to brand it "a Guantanamo in our own back yard".

'Faceless people'

"The similarities are striking and appalling," says human rights organisation Liberty.
"The lack of rights afforded to the men in both places undermines fundamental civil liberties."
