Remember the Georgian attack on South Ossettia ?

Georgia is bracing itself for an EU report that is about to come out.

Georgia is braced for a European Union-sanctioned report on the causes of the August 2008 war with Russia that could further undermine its claims that its forces invaded South Ossetia in response to a Russian assault.

The report, to be released on Wednesday, is expected to reinforce the consensus that both sides share responsibility for the war but that Georgia triggered the conflict by invading the breakaway region before Russian forces moved in.

They are even launching some "preemptive" attacks. Which can only mean Georgia started the war! Not a surprise.

Georgia fired first shot, say UK monitors

The report will be as diplomatic as possible and lay blame on both sides, but that won't change the obvious.

Calling all Laurel Canyon/ Dave McGowan Fans.....

You want the scoop on where the LC series is at? And what Dave will be coming out with?

You got one week, and one week only to catch the latest interview with David McGowan on the Meria Heller show.
Unless of course, you become a subscriber. Then you can listen to Dave until your heart is content.
And while your at it, catch all the other great shows, interviews and more...

Anyway, HERE is Dave!!

The official 9/11 story is "almost entirely and inexplicably untrue"

Who am I quoting in that title? I am quoting from an author of a book, we should have all heard alot more about. But we didn't. I'll explain......

When MacKenzie Phillips book, and crazy allegations hit the media like a hurricane. I thought to myself, how fortuitous for the US government. Because another book was released just days earlier. And, I mean just 4 to 5 days before her "news" broke.

Maybe you have heard of it, maybe you haven't?

It was a book written by John Farmer, Senior Council for the 9/11 commission and Rutgers University Dean of Law. The book is titled "The Ground Truth".

One thing made clear by John Farmer in the book, is that everything told to the people about 9/11 is a lie. Yes, he sticks to the official excuse, that the government was so incompetent they had no choice but to lie. I reject his conclusion. His conclusion is nothing but his opinion, there are other conclusions that can be drawn from the fact that the US government fabricated the entire official 9/11 conspiracy.

Opinions aside, the important point he makes clear, is that everything the public was told is a lie, it is untrue. This book, should have been getting all the press. The facts of the book, warrant the attention. But there are shall we say, timely distractions.

Here are some of Farmer's own words:

“At some level of government,” says Dean Farmer, “at some point in time, a decision was made not to tell the truth about the national response to the attacks on the morning of 9/11. We owe the truth to the families of the victims of 9/11. We owe it to the American public as well, because only by understanding what has gone wrong in the past can we assure our nation’s safety in the future.”

John Farmer comes to the conclusion that the official version of the story is almost entirely untrue, based on false testimony by the WhiteHouse, CIA, FBI and NORAD.

You can listen to this show, here as they discuss the book

John Farmer on how what the 9/11 Commission, public and media was told by military and government officials, 'was almost entirely, and inexplicably, untrue.'

You can also listen to an interview with John Farmer here
HOUR 1: John Farmer on how what the 9/11 Commission, public and media was told by military and government officials, 'was almost entirely, and inexplicably, untrue. Also, he answered the unspeakable questions that Glenn Beck felt merited the resignation of Van Jones from the Obama administration. He was offended by none of those questions.

There is a transcript of this show here

Farmer makes an interesting slip regarding the Pentagon plane in the interview.

John Farmer; "Yes, we did, and- and, uh, I know there's been a lot of speculation about, um, about, you know, whether a plane actually hit the Pentagon- I can assure you that it did."

He can assure everyone a plane did hit the Pentagon.. but when asked if he was shown pictures???

He says-

BF: OK, and just to be clear, 'cause we're hittin' the clock here, John- you have seen 'tapes' of a plane hitting the Pentagon?

JF: Well, uh, no I haven't seen tapes- pictures of a plane actually hitting the Pentagon,
How can he make the claim " I assure you (a plane hit the Pentagon) that it did"
When he was shown NO pictures, zero, none, nadda one.

He doesn't find that a bit odd?

Roman Polanski - Former Laurel Canyon resident - arrested??!!

Another Laurel Canyon connected individual suddenly bursts on to the scene?!!
It is a media bonanza with no fewer then 1,500 related stories in the "news"

Mind you, that is small potatoes compared to the coverage given MacKenzie Phillips allegations.
Search that and you will get more then 2,200 related stories.
Apparently sex scandals are big news, or something like that..... or something else?

After all these years... and he is arrested now in Switzerland, a country he regularly travels to???
Why now?

Polanski was arrested 31 years ago at a Beverly Hills hotel after a 13-year-old girl accused him of sexually assaulting her during a photo shoot at actor Jack Nicholson's house.
Apparently, Polanski pleaded guilty in 1977 and served 42 days in prison, but when his sentence was lengthened he left the country.

Interesting quote from above news story-

"Since the end of 2005 the US authorities are searching worldwide for Roman Polanski. A US arrest warrant against Roman Polanski exists since 1978.”

Are they serious? The US has been searching "worldwide" for Polanski since 2005?
Everyone, and I mean everyone knew where he was. He'd make a movie, do the film circuits...
It would get reported on.... is this a credible claim?

Couldn't the US just ask the French lap dog, Sarkozy? Excuse moi? Roman Polanski, where is he??

Interesting to note it was reported in May 2009 Polanski tried to have his conviction overturned.

Did the strange happenings of Laurel Canyon ever really end? And were the ties to the military and intelligence community ever really severed?
Because, like the music that distracted from the anti-war movement, are these sensational addmissions and arrests distractions also?

Pittsburgh G-20 Protests- Police State Tactics

Is this freedom and democracy? Free Speech? Accountability of "elected" leaders"?

Why are corporate insiders selling their shares ?

Green shoots, the recession is over ???????

Sept. 2009

Any time corporate executives and directors are heavily selling their company's stock there's reason for concern. And lately they've been doing just that.

The last time insider selling was as high as it is now was in the period from late 2006 to late 2007.
It was right after that insider-selling surge that the stock market began its long painful decline, says Charles Biderman, CEO of TrimTabs, an independent institutional research firm. Biderman believes that insider trades shoot higher when there's a disconnect between broad market opinions and what business executives feel in their gut. "When [insiders think] things are going better than most people think, they buy stock," he says. "When things are going worse than people think, they sell."

That's to say, insiders have no crystal ball but they often have access to up-to-the-minute sales data as well as firsthand impressions from their sales managers — and that gives them an inside track on what's happening in the economy. When this special access leads them to be big sellers of their stock, well, it's a vote of no confidence in their employer's near-term future.

John Phillips- singer/songwriter Laurel Canyon resident and more.....

Well, here is a character from Dave McGowan's-Laurel Canyon in the news!

While not exactly the man himself, but his daughter Mackenzie Phillips is certainly making NEWS, with her allegations regarding her dad.

Mamas and Papas singer 'had incestuous relationship with daughter'

And her Dad is none other then John Phillips. Best knowsn as the singer/songwriter for the Mamas and Papas, but he was so much more then that.

John Phillips was the main songwriter for The Mamas and The Papas, the vocal harmony group which he formed with his wife, Michelle, Denny Doherty and Cass Elliot. They had their first hit in 1965 with California Dreamin' and went on to sell 40 million albums worldwide, spawning such memorable songs as Monday, Monday and Dedicated To The One I Love.

He was also a founder of the Monterey Pop Festival, one of the key events of the 1967 "Summer of Love".

According to Dave McGowan's LC, John Phillips had the usual military background we have all become familiar with from reading the strange but true journey through hippiedom

John Edmund Andrew Phillips was, shockingly enough, yet another child of the military/intelligence complex. The son of U.S. Marine Corp Captain Claude Andrew Phillips and a mother who claimed to have psychic and telekinetic powers, John attended a series of elite military prep schools in the Washington, D.C. area, culminating in an appointment to the prestigious U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis

"“Papa” John Phillips, more so than probably any of the other illustrious residents of Laurel Canyon, will play a major role in spreading the emerging youth ‘counterculture’ across America. His contribution will be twofold: first, he will co-organize (along with Manson associate Terry Melcher) the famed Monterrey Pop Festival, which, through unprecedented media exposure, will give mainstream America its first real look at the music and fashions of the nascent ‘hippie’ movement. Second, Phillips will pen an insipid song known as “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair),” which will quickly rise to the top of the charts. Along with the Monterrey Pop Festival, the song will be instrumental in luring the disenfranchised (a preponderance of whom are underage runaways) to San Francisco to create the Haight-Asbury phenomenon and the famed 1967 “Summer of Love.

MacKenzie's sister Chynna Phillips says the claim is truthful.

"She said, 'I don't know why, but I just really felt the need to call you and tell you something that I think you need to know,' " Chynna recalls about the phone call she got from Mackenzie in 1997, 11 years after the relationship had ended. "And she went on to tell me that she had had an incestuous relationship with our dad for about 10 years."

Anthrax Wars, Dead Scientists and Biowarfare research

Hoping I am not annoying those that follow, but, this is going to be a multiple post day.

The other day, I put up a link to an interview with Eric Nadler, it was a good one and I hope it wasn't missed.

After I listened to it, I recalled a news story that is connected to what Eric Nadler was talking about. The proliferation of labs doing work with deadly virus's. Labs right in your neighbourhood.
The recent death of a professor at Chicago University. A deadly plague virus at a University.
Here is a selection of stories.

And then Edo, was good enough to come along and tell me this man had a documentary that he had seen. Thanks Edo! Sure enough, the CBC had shown the documentary on The Passionate Eye . Here is Part 1 of Anthrax War:

An aside, I see Francis Boyle appears in this documentary. I have heard him interviewed a number of times regarding bioweapons. He is always excellent!

You can find the rest of the documentary in the links below. The first 6 parts are approximately 10 minutes in length, the seventh is about 5 minutes. Most certainly worth watching it all.

Oil giant Shell looks for new deal to combat global warming

It has been said that the oil companies stand behind the opponents of the global warming doctrine.
Or, put another way, those that question the reality of man made global warming have to be diving in the deep pockets of Big Oil. An interesting premise, and of course totally plausible.

However, this news story tells us a different story Global firms seek climate deal.

What global firms are we talking about here?

A group of more than 500 international companies has urged the United Nations to agree a strong new climate deal to help combat global warming.

The group called for "immediate and deep" cuts in greenhouse gas emissions, as world leaders meet at the UN in New York for climate change talks.

The companies are members of the Prince of Wales's Corporate Leaders Group on Climate Change.

They include Tesco, German insurer Allianz and oil giant Shell.

An oil company? Flies in the face of the usual arguement.

Now, surely there is a profit motivation behind all this. There always is.
So how would Shell profit from this?
By the driving up of oil prices? I would think this is likely.
You will buy less but pay more for it. Shell will produce less, thereby reducing costs, but given increased pricing will still be raking in the profits.
That is just one scenario. I am sure there are others.

Vaccine makers spread uncirculated virus's to test vaccines ?!

Hidden in amongst this Global Alert and Response (GAR) release from WHO is a very interesting paragraph. I will digress momentarily to say, this entire GAR sounds like a promotional for the vaccines, don't worry they're safe, just smile and roll up your sleeves...

But, the one lone paragraph, I have highlighted below, that caught my attention. It reads like an admission that makers of vaccines release new viral strains into the population to enable them to do early testing of their highly profitable vaccines.
Problem, Reaction, Solution.

6 AUGUST 2009 | GENEVA -- WHO is aware of some media reports that have expressed concern about the safety of vaccines for pandemic influenza. The public needs to be reassured that regulatory procedures in place for the licensing of pandemic vaccines, including procedures for expediting regulatory approval, are rigorous and do not compromise safety or quality controls.

Vaccines are among the most important medical interventions for reducing illness and deaths during a pandemic. However, to have the greatest impact, pandemic vaccines need to be available quickly and in large quantities.During the 1957 and 1968 pandemics, vaccines arrived too late to be used as an effective mitigation tool during the more severe phases of the pandemics. Influenza vaccines had not yet been developed when the 1918 pandemic swept around the world, eventually killing an estimated 50 million people.

In 2007, as part of preparedness for an influenza pandemic, WHO worked together with health officials, regulatory authorities, and vaccine manufacturers to explore a broad range of issues surrounding the regulatory approval of pandemic vaccines. [1]

Ways were sought to shorten the time between the emergence of a pandemic virus and the availability of safe and effective vaccines. Different regulatory pathways were assessed, and precautions needed to ensure quality, safety, and effectiveness were set out in detail.

Fast-track procedures for approval

Regulatory authorities have shown great flexibility in developing procedures for fast-tracking the approval and licensing of pandemic vaccines.

In some cases, pandemic vaccines are not regarded by regulatory authorities as entirely “new” vaccines, as they build on the technology used to produce vaccines for seasonal influenza, established procedures for testing and regulatory control, and an extensive body of safety data.

In such cases, approval procedures are similar to those applied to “strain changes” made each year when seasonal vaccines are modified to match circulating viruses in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.

Specific regulatory procedures have been devised to expedite the approval of pandemic vaccines. In the USA, for example, fewer data are required when the manufacturer already has a licensed influenza vaccine and intends to use the same manufacturing process for its pandemic vaccine.

In the European Union, the European Medicines Agency uses a rolling review procedure whereby manufacturers can submit sets of data for regulatory review as they become available, without having to wait until all data can be submitted together in a single formal application.

Also in Europe, some manufacturers have conducted advance studies using a so-called “mock-up” vaccine. Mock-up vaccines contain an active ingredient for an influenza virus that has not circulated recently in human populations and thus mimics the novelty of a pandemic virus. Such advance studies can greatly expedite regulatory approval.

Special safety concerns

Influenza vaccines have been used for more than 60 years and have an established record of safety in all age groups. While some serious adverse events have been reported, these have been rare.

Nonetheless, special safety issues will inevitably arise during a pandemic when vaccine is administered on a massive scale. For example, adverse events too rare to show up even in a large clinical trial may become apparent when very large numbers of people receive a pandemic vaccine.

Some adverse events will be coincidental – that is, associated in time with vaccine administration, yet not directly caused by the vaccine. Genuine adverse events directly caused by the vaccine may also occur, but cannot be predicted in advance. Given the safety record of seasonal vaccines, such events are expected to be rare.

Time constraints mean that clinical data at the time when pandemic vaccines are first administered will inevitably be limited. Further testing of safety and effectiveness will need to take place after administration of the vaccine has begun.

For these reasons, WHO advises all countries administering pandemic vaccines to conduct intensive monitoring for safety and efficacy, and many countries have plans in place for doing so. On the positive side, mass vaccination campaigns can generate significant safety data within a few weeks.

International sharing of data from such post-marketing surveillance will be vital in guiding risk-benefit assessments and determining whether changes in vaccination policies are needed. WHO has developed standardized protocols for data collection and reporting in real-time, and will communicate findings to the international community via its web site.

Verichip shares jump after H1N1 patent licence win

Interesting little story. It deserves widespread attention.

Shares of VeriChip Corp tripled after the company said it had been granted an exclusive license to two patents, which will help it to develop implantable virus detection systems in humans.

Implanted, knowlingly or otherwise?

The patents, held by VeriChip partner Receptors LLC, relate to biosensors that can detect the H1N1 and other viruses, and biological threats such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, VeriChip said in a statement.

The technology will combine with VeriChip's implantable radio frequency identification devices to develop virus triage detection systems. The triage system will provide multiple levels of identification -- the first will identify the agent as virus or non-virus, the second level will classify the virus and alert the user to the presence of pandemic threat viruses and the third level will identify the precise pathogen, VeriChip said in a white paper published May 7, 2009.

What else can the chip do? What else can it identify? It could be adjusted after implant quite easily. Then what could the chip do? What could the chip inform the "user" of ? And who exactly is the "user"?

Shares of VeriChip were up 186 percent at $3.28 Monday late afternoon trade on Nasdaq. They had touched a year high of $3.43 earlier in the session.

Any other questions? Feel free to add them

Guns and Butter- Anthrax Wars

Very good show to give a listen to! Listen here
The archive will be available until Sept 23/09

"Anthrax Wars" with investigative journalist, author and filmmaker, Eric Nadler, on the anthrax attacks of September 2001; the Ames Strain of anthrax; dead microbiologists Bruce Ivins and David Kelly; Bioport and the anthrax vaccine; the new vaccine growth industry; private bio labs and the new bio/military industrial complex.

Especially good for anyone interested in the anthrax attacks after 9/11.
Talking on Bruce Ivins and David Kelley and recalling all the deaths of micro-biologists??????

Having listened to this interview this investigative journalist makes it clear that the official conspiracy theory put forth by the FBI regarding Ivins cannot be true or believed.
Same for David Kelley, the official narrative of his death, not true.
But then, who with a working brain didn't know that?

The Goldstone Report

Well the Goldstone report has been released and a good article on the report made an appearance this week-end.
Shining a light on Israeli aggression in Gaza

Hardhitting, the Goldstone report was not, and I will get to that later....

But even in it's whitewashed version the conclusion was that Israel had committed war crimes and crimes against humanity.

In fact, Israeli operations were "carefully planned in all their phases as a deliberately disproportionate attack designed to punish, humiliate and terrorize a civilian population, radically diminish its local economic capacity to work and to provide for itself, and to force upon it an ever increasing sense of dependency and vulnerability."

Israel was following its Dahiya Doctrine – "the application of disproportionate force and the causing of great damage and destruction to civilian property and infrastructure, and suffering to civilian populations."

Goldstone has pronounced Israel guilty of:

  • Attacking residential areas, water wells, rooftop water tanks, agricultural land, citrus groves, chicken farms, greenhouses, business factories and police stations.
  • Using phosphorous incendiary shells on a UN compound sheltering more than 600 civilians.
  • Using phosphorous and high explosive artillery shells on Al-Quds hospital. (He rejected the contention that Hamas or other militants were using the hospital.)
  • Attacking a crowded mosque during evening prayers. (He rejected the contention that arms and militants were inside.)
  • Using flechettes, 4-cm metal darts fired from missiles, planes or tanks "that penetrate straight through human bone and can cause serious, often fatal, injuries."
  • Using Palestinians as human shields in house searches.
If you have followed the occupation of Palestinians by Israel, there is nothing really new in this report. For example, Israel using Palestinians as human shields is old news.

The Israeli's use and have used Palestinians for so long as human shields, that in 2005 the Israeli High Court ruled against the practices of the IDF-Israeli High Court Bans Army Use of Palestinians as Human Shields But, even that has not stopped the Israeli army from continuing that inhumane practice, amongst it many others.

Back to why this report, though good, is still a whitewash of the reality of the Israeli slaughter of Gazans.... It was reported in Haaretz, that Goldstone's involvement in the report softened the report for Israel's benefit.
Goldstone's daughter: My father's participation softened UN Gaza report

Had Richard Goldstone not served as the head of the UN inquiry into the Gaza war, the accusations against Israel would have been harsher, Goldstone's daughter, Nicole, said in an interview conducted in Hebrew with Army Radio on Wednesday.

"My father took on this job because he thought he is doing the best thing for peace, for everyone, and also for Israel," Nicole Goldstone told Army Radio.

She added that her father wrestled with the decision to take on the task. "It wasn't easy [for him]," Nicole Goldstone said. "My father did not expect to see and hear what he saw and heard."
This report should have been about the truth. But the truth must have been so bad, that Mr Goldstone an ardent supporter of Israel, had to soften it. But, really how can one soften war crimes, crimes against humanity and human rights abuses?

Oh and of course, Canada's Harper government is, as ever, the apologist for Israeli war crimes. While the Liberals stayed silent. Additionaly, the Obama administration said the report was unfair to Israel. Interesting to note, the typical smear is on, Goldstone is now being called a "self-hating Jew".
Yup, all the usual political games. And still innocent civilians die.

Canada's usual manipulations fail at the UN

It is interesting to note Canada's role in the UN vote for Israel to finally allow nuclear inspections.

Canada did what Canada does best, play politics. Canada doesn't concern itself with fairness, justice or equal accountability.

Canada plays follow the leader to the US and is influenced by pro-Israeli lobby groups.

Check this out

Calling the resolution "unbalanced," Canada tried to block a vote on the floor with a "no-action motion." But the procedural maneuver lost by an eight-vote margin. The same motion prevailed in 2007 and 2008s

What has changed from the previous years? To quote a senior diplomat from the non-aligned movement (NAM) of developing nations

"People and countries are bolder now, willing to call a spade a spade. You cannot hide or ignore the truth, the double standards, of Israel's nuclear capability forever,"

UN body urges Israel to allow nuclear inspection

This is good news, no it is great news. Now, let's hope it is followed up on. Though I will point out, Israel is saying they will not cooperate in any way with this resolution.
Hmmm... sounds like time for some strong sanctions.

The United Nations nuclear assembly voted on Friday to urge Israel to accede to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and place all atomic sites under the world body's inspections, in a surprise victory for Arab states.

The resolution, passed narrowly for the first time in nearly two decades, expresses concern about "Israeli nuclear capabilities" and calls on the International Atomic Energy Agency chief, Mohamed ElBaradei, to work on the issue.

Israel is one of only three countries worldwide along with India and Pakistan outside the nuclear NPT and is widely assumed to have the Middle East's only nuclear arsenal, though it has never confirmed or denied it.

"The delegation of Israel deplores this resolution," David Danieli, deputy director of Israel's atomic energy commission, told the chamber after the vote.

"Israel will not cooperate in any matter with this resolution which is only aiming at reinforcing political hostilities and lines of division in the Middle East region."

Propaganda vs Reality: Irans alleged nuclear bombs

Let's take the time to note the difference between an article written to induce an emotional response such as hysteria and fear which would be considered propaganda. As compared to an article written to provide information.

Call this: The Tale of two news stories.

Did you catch the news story, just breaking?
The All-Propaganda news service-Newsbreak- presented a most startling headline!
A proclamation that a Nuke agency says Iran can make bomb. WOW!!!!
What an emotional headline, an attention grabber, sure to garner an emotional reaction.
But then when you read a little further to the bottom...last sentence. It is a different story.
Apparently, Iran has "sufficient information" to build a bomb.

Sufficient Information? What does that mean? Sufficient information does not correlate with construction. It doesn't correlate with capability
So I wondered what is the point of this 'news article' and I use this term loosely and it's inflammatory headline?

Off I go to find some real information, I find this article. Far less inflammatory in it's headline and better information. Let's look together, shall we?

"Washington acknowledged on Thursday that Iran's long-range missile program posed less of a threat to the West than previously thought."

"Without a long-range delivery vehicle for a nuclear weapon, there is clearly little threat that Iran would be able to successfully fire a nuclear, or any other kind of warhead, at the United States if it wanted to."

Analysts and intelligence officials have said that Iran's nuclear program represents a medium- or long-term threat and one that can be dealt with diplomatically.

The expansion of Iran's uranium enrichment program has slowed down in recent months, according to the U.N. nuclear watchdog in Vienna

Most Western intelligence agencies believe the soonest Iran could have an atomic weapon is in several years, that would be a worst-case scenario

According to this article Washington acknowledges that Iran has no capabilities to deliver long range missiles, nuclear or any other. Which makes an attack on the US impossible. Analysts and intelligence agencies have said that Iran's nuclear program is no iminent threat and can be dealt with diplomatically. The IAEA has even reported a slowing of enrichment in recent months.

Why the difference in headlines, tone and information for the same news story?
Could it be that the two news stories have different intentions. The first one to inflame, mislead and cause fear? The second one, to actually inform?
It does look that way, doesn't it?

Obama dropping missile defence for cooperation from Russia on Iran attack ?

The timing of this announcement is certainly interesting. The US seems to be gunning for a war with Iran to distract from pressing domestic issues. Is this a concession to Russia?

Obama to Scrap European Missile Shield Plan

The headline is misleading, because the plan is not being scrapped entirely, just altered.

President Obama said Thursday that he is abandoning Bush-era plans for a land based/ long-range missile defense system based in Poland and the Czech Republic

Opting instead for shorter range land- and sea-based system of sensors and interceptors.

They are most definitely not scrapping missile defence, as made clear by Robert Gates in this statement-

"Those who say we are scrapping missile defense in Europe are either misinformed or misrepresenting the reality of what we are doing," Gates said. "The security of Europe has been a vital national interest of the United States for my entire career. The circumstances, borders and threats may have changed, but that commitment continues."

Wondering about Dave McGowan???

I was too!

So I contacted Meria Heller.
Dave appears regularly on her show.
I inquired, what's up with Dave?

Meria told me
"Dave had a computer crash of all crashes last month, so he wasn’t available. He will be this month, so hang in there."
I said
"But seriously Laurel Canyon is the topic of endless discussion on more then one forum that I have seen. Never mind the websites that post the latest."
Meria said
"Yes, LC is a big story for sure! Dave wants to continue it, and will, however he has decided to take his attention to the fake moon landings, and we may be covering that on our next show. Not to worry, the LC story will continue."
Whew! What a relief.

His next appearance on her show will be to discuss the moon landings, real or not?
Should be good, and funny, cause Dave is hilarious to listen to!

If you would like to hear Dave for yourself, get over to her site
Meria Heller

She has a deal right now-
Special for New Listeners - One full month of Meria for $10!

You can relisten to all of the interviews she has done with Dave, not just on Laurel Canyon, but on all his great books.
Derailing Democracy, Programmed to Kill and and Understanding the F-word.
Yes, I own and have read them all.

No I am not paid to endorse Meria's show, I have long been a listener.
Always good, always informative.

Bill C-51 & 52 reincarnated as Bill C - 6

Canadians take action!

Here is the bill C-6
Another blogger here covers the issue.
or here:

BILL C6- The Canadian Governments Plan To Outlaw YOUR GOOD HEALTH

Get this!

Anywhere in the Bill C-6 where you see the word 'government', here is what defines 'government'. Clue: It ain't just the elected government.

“government” means any of the following or their institutions:

(a) the federal government;

(b) a corporation named in Schedule III to the Financial Administration Act;

(c) a provincial government or a public body established under an Act of the legislature of a province;

(d) an aboriginal government as defined in subsection 13(3) of the Access to Information Act;

(e) a government of a foreign state or of a subdivision of a foreign state; or

(f) an international organization of states.


So in Section 15 which says

"The Minister may disclose personal information to a person or a government that carries out functions relating to the protection of human health"

Recall the definition of government, as defined above.

Therefore the Health Minister can disclose personal information on a Canadian citizen to a foreign government, a corporation or an international organization states. What in the hell!?

Is there any doubt that corporations rule?
Doesn't the' international organization of states' sound like the UN (Codex Alimentarus)

Doesn't 'government of a foreign state' make on think of the NAU. (Sharing info with the US and Mexico)

Listen to Constitutional lawyer Shawn Buckley speak on Bill C-6

Part 2

Canadian and Afghan people sharing the misery

When thinking about the story I posted yesterday, as I like to humourously call it -Tories flip the bird to Canadians.

Keep this in mind- Majority of Canadian employees living paycheque to paycheque, survey shows . Therefore, while the governing Tories tell Canadians it is none of their business how the tax dollars are being spent in Afghanistan..... Canadians are having a harder time surviving.

"Nearly 60 per cent of Canadians would have trouble paying the bills if their paycheque was delayed by one week, a new polls suggests."

Then think about this-

The Afghan people wonder what has democracy done for them ?

Well, it is pretty obvious it hasn't done much of anything, nor was that the intention.

The invasion of Afghanistan was for the energy bridge, the gateway, the strategic position of Afghanistan in the war for control of energy. Oh, and the opium.

Read TAPI pipeline construction, and previous posts on opium production, or this

Here is a simple little map of the pipeline

Except the pipeline now extends to India, so just draw the line through Pakistan to India.

( An aside: Now you understand the attacks in Pakistan?)

Sorry for rambling......
To summarize, as Canadians get poorer, unable to support themselves, as jobs leave their 'government' says too bad for you.
The lives of the Afghan people are made more miserable, unable to support themselves and their 'government' says too bad for you too!

Tories to Canadians- Cost of Afghan war is none of your business!!

Just keep sending your kids to die, and never mind about those wasted tax dollars

NDP files complaint to release figures

In a significant policy shift, the Canadian government now believes that telling the country's taxpayers the future cost of the war in Afghanistan would be a threat to national security.

So how is telling Canadians how their tax dollars are spent a threat to national security?
Oh and taxpayers don't need to know for 3 years.

In a June 3 letter to an NDP researcher, Julie Jansen, the director of the military's access branch, cited "the defence of Canada or any state allied" with it in justifying the withholding of the figures for the three next fiscal years.

Section 15 of the act allows the withholding of any "information the disclosure of which could reasonably be expected to be injurious to the conduct of international affairs, the defence of Canada or any state allied or associated with Canada or the detection, prevention or suppression of subversive or hostile activities."

Ms. Jansen also invoked a Section 21 exemption, which gives a government department the discretionary power to disclose records that include negotiationplans, deliberations or consultations, or "administrative plans that have not yet been put into operation."

Boeing's Spontaneous Combustion Beam

Silent deathray in first blast from the skies

American death-tech goliath Boeing has announced a long-delayed in-flight firing for the smaller of its two aeroplane raygun-cannon prototypes, the Advanced Tactical Laser (ATL). The ATL blaster, mounted in a Hercules transport aircraft, apparently "defeated" an unoccupied stationary vehicle.

Nor have observers failed to note that the US military agency in charge of ATL is the secretive Special Operations Command (SOCOM).

In years to come, the secret supertroopers of SOCOM may be able to cause a cell tower to stop working, a vehicle's fuel tank to suddenly explode, or a single person to inexplicably be incinerated - all completely silently and tracelessly, without anyone knowing they were ever there and not so much as a spent bullet left behind.
The secretive Special Operations Command is in charge of the Advanced Tactical Laser Weapon Blaster, that can incinerate a human being silently, without a trace.

Let's not assume this weapon will only be used for warfare. Often these military weapons end up serving domestically, for crowd control, against the domestic population.

Think not?

Weapons that were used in Iraq against 'insurgents' , recently appeared at townhall meetings in the US.

CIA doctors face human experimentation claims

The more things change the more they stay the same.................

Medical ethics group says physicians monitored 'enhanced interrogation techniques' and studied their effectiveness

Doctors and psychologists the CIA employed to monitor its "enhanced interrogation" of terror suspects came close to, and may even have committed, unlawful human experimentation, a medical ethics watchdog has alleged.

Physicians for Human Rights (PHR), a not-for-profit group that has investigated the role of medical personnel in alleged (demonstrated, proven) incidents of torture at Guantánamo, Abu Ghraib, Bagram and other US detention sites, accuses doctors of being far more involved than hitherto understood.

PHR says health professionals participated at every stage in the development, implementation and legal justification of what it calls the CIA's secret "torture programme".

The American Medical Association, the largest body of physicians in the US, said it was in open dialogue with the Obama administration and other government agencies over the role of doctors. "The participation of physicians in torture and interrogation is a violation of core ethical values," it said.

The most incendiary accusation of PHR's latest report, Aiding Torture, is that doctors actively monitored the CIA's interrogation techniques with a view to determining their effectiveness, using detainees as human subjects without their consent. The report concludes that such data gathering was "a practice that approaches unlawful experimentation".

Human experimentation without consent has been prohibited in any setting since 1947, when the Nuremberg Code, which resulted from the prosecution of Nazi doctors, set down 10 sacrosanct principles. The code states that voluntary consent of subjects is essential and that all unnecessary physical and mental suffering should be avoided.

The West claims Muslims are barbarous????
Listen to Democracy Now here for more info.

Flashback: It was these same kind of inhumane perverted "doctors" that conducted all the MKUltra experiments, without the consent of the humans they were abusing.
From LSD to radiation and more, the MKUltra docs did it all. Just like these doctors. Oh yeah, both times employed by the CIA!

In New York City there has been a push on for a new legitimate 9/11 investigation.
They have gathered the required signatures to have a referendum vote in Nov. 2009.
You can read all about this at NYC CAN

Why a new investigation, a citizen investigation?
Well as Thomas Kean puts it, because the first one was set up to fail, and fail it did.
So the people have to do, what the government failed to do.

Here are a few questions I can think of that still need answering....

After being informed of the attacks why did George Bush continue to sit in the classroom? Why did he linger afterwards? Why didn't the secret service move him to safety?
It would seem he was in no danger and therefore these actions were not necessary.

Why has George Bush, on more then one occasion, claimed he saw the first plane hit the the WTC, on the day it happened? Which was not possible.

The put options. Insider trading. Who?

The Stand-down. Why? Failure to carry out Standard Operating Procedure?

Stalling to create the commission to investigate? Why?

Why Osama Bin Laden is NOT wanted for 9/11 crimes?

And if he isn't then what about the hijackers?

Since 9/11 some of the hijackers have been reported to be alive. If that is the case and fake ID was used as has been acknowledged, who were the hijackers really?

No steel framed skyscrapers EVER collapsed from fire, before 9/11 and none have since, making the collapse of WTC building 1, 2 & 7 complete anomolies. Why then was the clean-up done so quickly and the steel whisked away so promptly as to make a proper investigation impossible?

Read: Asia Times on line edition they have an article: Fifty questions on 9/11

How organized crime, bankers and covert ops gave birth to hippies in Laurel Canyon

Sorry for that long title, I was just at a loss what to call this info, how to describe the contents of this post, in as short of a sentence as possible. But, like the Laurel Canyon series, nothing is a simple as it seems.

I've said it before, but I'll say it again it is clear, or should be, to anyone following Inside The LC: The Strange but Mostly True Story of Laurel Canyon and the Birth of the Hippie Generation, that what Dave McGowan has been writing about has been one big MKUltra experiment.

The music, the free LSD, the cults - satanists, the military and covert ops connections, the strange deaths it is all there.

Then Peter leaves a link here to a book. Thanks Peter!
Dope, Inc. Britian's Opium War against the US

This chapter, Creating the Market seems very much connected to the goings on in Laurel Canyon
It is a background on British and US Intelligence cooperation and the creation of the LSD movement. I disagree with the tone of the title, I am of the opinion that the US was a willing partner in this type of activity. That aside, the information is very interesting.

I will include some excerpts:

The "case officer" for Britain's Opium War was Aldous Huxley, the grandson of Thomas H. Huxley, a founder of the Rhodes Round Table group and a lifelong collaborator of Arnold Toynbee. Toynbee himself sat on the RIIA council for nearly 50 years, headed the Research Division of British intelligence throughout World War II, and served as wartime briefing officer to Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

Aldous Huxley, along with his brother Julian, was tutored at Oxford by H. G. Wells, the head of British foreign intelligence during World War I. Wells's writings (Time Machine, etc.), along with those of his protégés Aldous Huxley (Brave New World) and George Orwell (1984, Animal Farm), were written as "mass appeal" organizing documents on behalf of Britain's "en-lightened" world order. Only in the United States are these "science fiction classics" taught in grade school as attacks against fascism. (A contemporary British intelligence operative turned-author, Anthony Burgess, wrote Clockwork Orange in the Wells-Orwell-Huxley tradition as a pornographic celebration of the drug-rock counterculture.)

With regard to the comment on George Orwell (italics above) there is a book available on George Orwell- George Orwell and the Betrayal of Dissent . This book makes the case that Orwell was not a contrarian to state power, he was in fact a solid supporter of state power.
Back to the excerpts from Dope Inc.

Enter America:

Lycergic acid diethylamide, or LSD, was developed in 1943 by Albert Hoffman, a chemist at Sandoz A.G. — a Swiss pharmaceutical house owned by S. G. Warburg. While precise documentation is unavailable as to the auspices under which the LSD research was commissioned, it can be safely assumed that British intelligence and its subsidiary U.S. Office of Strategic Services were directly involved. Allen Dulles, the director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency in 1952 when that agency began its covert LSD experiment, MK-ULTRA, was the OSS station chief in Berne, Switzerland throughout the early Sandoz research. One of his OSS assistants was James Warburg, of the same Warburg family, who was instrumental in the 1963 founding of the Institute for Policy Studies, and worked with both Huxley and Robert Hutchins. (10)

Who provided the drugs that swamped the antiwar movement and the college campuses of the United States in the late 1960s? The organized crime infrastructure — which had set up the Peking Connection for the opium trade in 1928 — provided the same services in the 1960s and 1970s it had provided during Prohibition. This was also the same network Huxley had established contact with in Hollywood during the 1930s.

The LSD Connection begins with one William "Billy" Mellon Hitchcock. Hitchcock was a graduate of the University of Vienna and a scion of the millionaire Mellon banking family of Pittsburgh. (Andrew Mellon of the same family had been the Treasury Secretary throughout Prohibition.) In 1963, when Timothy Leary was thrown out of Harvard, Hitchcock rented a 55-room mansion in Millbrook, New York where the entire Leary Huxley circle of initiates was housed until its later move back to California. (23)

Hitchcock was also a broker for the Lansky syndicate and for the Fiduciary Trust Co., Nassau, Grand Bahamas — a wholly owned subsidiary of Investors Overseas Services. He was formally employed by Delafield and Delafield Investments where he worked on buying and selling vast quantities of stock in the Mary Carter Paint Co. — soon to become Resorts International.

In 1967, Dr. Richard Alpert put Hitchcock in contact with Augustus Owsley Stanley III. As Owsley's agent, Hitchcock retained the law firm of Rabinowitz, Boudin and Standard (24) to conduct a feasibility study of several Caribbean countries to determine the best location for the production and distribution of LSD and hashish.

During this period, Hitchcock joined Leary and his circle in California. Leary had established an LSD cult called the Brother hood of Eternal Love and several front companies, including Mystics Art World, Inc. of Laguna Beach, California. These California-based entities ran lucrative trafficking in Mexican marijuana and LSD brought in from Switzerland and Britain. The British connection had been established directly by Hitchcock, who contracted the Charles Bruce chemical firm to import large quantities of the chemical components of LSD. With financing from both Hitchcock and George Grant Hoag, the heir to the J.C. Penney dry goods fortune, the Brotherhood of Eternal Love set up LSD and hashish production-marketing operations in Costa Rica in 1968. (25)

Timothy Leary's involvement with the CIA has been discussed previously on the blog.
It was Timothy Leary's testimony that ensured LSD became an illegal substance, according to Owsley, likely at the conclusion of the whatever MKUltra experiments had been going on.

Embassy Guards Gone Wild in Afghanistan!

If you thought the news on Afghanistan's occupation being funded by heroin production was unusual. Take that funding further down the line ....

Imagine the money then being used to fund this: Animal House in Afghanistan

Or check out this article The US embassy in Kabul-Guards Gone Wild!
There is a link there to all the pictures provided by The Project on Government Oversight.

Despite these goings on, and the fact that their was a congressional probe and serious lapses in the company's handling of security at the embassy, the the State Department renewed the multi-million dollar contact with Wackenhut.

Tacit approval?

Oh and if you liked Guards gone Wild, don't miss the previous installment-
Contractors Gone Wild!

Theft, hookers, melting down Iraqi gold to make cowboy spurs? All in a day's work for private military contractors in Iraq?

Protesting TIFF's celebration of an occupation

Naomi Klein: Toronto International Film Festival
"We don't feel like celebrating with Israel this year"

Toronto film festival hit by cultural boycott over Tel Aviv strand

Film-maker John Greyson cited Israeli action in Gaza and the expansion of illegal settlements as reasons for his withdrawal, accusing the festival of: "an ostrich-like indifference to the realities (cinematic and otherwise) of the region", and comparing the strand to one "celebrating Montgomery buses in 1963 … Chilean wines in 1973 … or South African fruit in 1991". His objection, he wrote, was not due to the individual titles being shown, but the festival's co-operation with the Israeli government's Brand Israel marketing push.
Press Conference to be held Sept. 10th

Swine flu sensationalism?

Did you hear about the massive swine flu outbreak at Washington State University?
2000 cases! Or so the headlines say. If all you read is headlines then that is what you will believe, but read further.
Oh and by the way, you should always read further... and more then one article.
Back to the story!

In compliance with the CDC guidlines, the University is NOT testing to confirm cases.

In fact if one takes a gander at their blog- Washington State University

"We estimate that we have been in contact with about 2,000 students with influenza-like illness in the first ten days of our fall semester."

How have they made that contact?

We had a total of 114 patient contacts yesterday for influenza-like illness. (We had 42 phone nurse conversations; 49 patients who chose to self care after talking with a nurse; and 23 patients who were seen by providers.)

So of the most recent 114 cases of influenza like illness, ONLY 23 were actually seen by providers ( I am unsure what a provider is) That means the other 93 were actually seen by no one, no health care professional actually saw or assessed the people.

How do they know for certain they actually had swine flu?

In accordance with guidelines from the Whitman County Health Department and the CDC, HWS is no longer testing patients to confirm H1N1 infection, and we are only testing high risk patients for type A influenza . If a patient tests positive for type A influenza, it is assumed they have H1N1 and are treated accordingly. It is also possible to have H1N1 and not test positive for type A influenza. We are treating all patients with influenza-like symptoms as if they have H1N1.

They don't.

Drug trafficking funds the US occupation in Afghanistan

Watch the video

Is it a coincidence the opium production is up in the Kandahar province of Afghanistan?

"But in Kandahar province, where Canadian troops operate, poppy farming rose by a third and opium production nearly doubled"

Pfizer pays record fine for illegal promotions

Just a short time ago we read the news that Wyeth had paid ghostwriters to promote it's hormone treatment, which turned out to greatly increase invasive cancer in women.
Additionally we learned, that this type of ghostwriting for medical journals is a common problem

Now it's Pfizer turn!. Can we trust these companies to care about anything but the profit making?

Pfizer pays record fine for illegal promotions

To make matters worse this is the fourth time that Pfizer has been caught doing this!!

Authorities called Pfizer a repeat offender, noting it is the fourth such settlement of government charges in the last decade. They said the government would monitor the company's conduct for the next five years to rein in the abuses.

Loucks said that even as Pfizer was negotiating deals on past misconduct, they were continuing to violate the same laws with other drugs.

Incredible! Their profits are clearly so massive they can swallow up these fines and carry on as usual.

To promote the drugs, authorities said Pfizer invited doctors to consultant meetings at resort locations, paying their expenses and providing perks.

"They were entertained with golf, massages and other activities," said Mike Loucks, the U.S. attorney in Massachusetts.

Then the doctors, after a good palm greasing would promote Pfizers drugs.

World's Stocks Controlled by a Select Few

If a pair of physicists could make the arguement that the world finances are held in the hands of a select few, would you finally wake up and smell the coffee?

Because a pair of physicists, doing a physics based analysis did just that. The conclusion the worlds finances are firmly held in the hands of a few players.

Largest concentration? The US, Britian and Australia.

Inside Science News Service-- A recent analysis of the 2007 financial markets of 48 countries has revealed that the world's finances are in the hands of just a few mutual funds, banks, and corporations. This is the first clear picture of the global concentration of financial power, and point out the worldwide financial system's vulnerability as it stood on the brink of the current economic crisis.

A pair of physicists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich did a physics-based analysis of the world economy as it looked in early 2007. Stefano Battiston and James Glattfelder extracted the information from the tangled yarn that links 24,877 stocks and 106,141 shareholding entities in 48 countries, revealing what they called the "backbone" of each country's financial market. These backbones represented the owners of 80 percent of a country's market capital, yet consisted of remarkably few shareholders.

"You start off with these huge national networks that are really big, quite dense," Glattfelder said. “From that you're able to ... unveil the important structure in this original big network. You then realize most of the network isn't at all important."

The most pared-down backbones exist in Anglo-Saxon countries, including the U.S., Australia, and the U.K. Paradoxically; these same countries are considered by economists to have the most widely-held stocks in the world, with ownership of companies tending to be spread out among many investors. But while each American company may link to many owners, Glattfelder and Battiston's analysis found that the owners varied little from stock to stock, meaning that comparatively few hands are holding the reins of the entire market.

Pentagon profiling reporters with the help of the Rendon Group

Wag the Dog? Yes!
The Rendon group is always willing to help.
Wanna get your war on? Hire the Rendon Group to manufacture the means.
"This war brought to you by Rendon Group"

How has Rendon been helping to manipulate the story and manage the image lately?

Files prove Pentagon is profiling reporters

WASHINGTON — Contrary to the insistence of Pentagon officials this week that they are not rating the work of reporters covering U.S. forces in Afghanistan, Stars and Stripes has obtained documents that prove that reporters’ coverage is being graded as “positive,” “neutral” or “negative.”

Moreover, the documents — recent confidential profiles of the work of individual reporters prepared by a Pentagon contractor — indicate that the ratings are intended to help Pentagon image-makers manipulate the types of stories that reporters produce while they are embedded with U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

Pentagon Hires Rendon Group to Profile and Rate Journalists Covering Afghanistan War

Who better then a PR group? Who better then Rendon?

Why Gary Doer ? Why now ?

Answer: The progeny of NAFTA and the SPP. Or should I say, the bastard child of ??
North American Union.

Gary Doer:

"He understands the critical importance of the Canada-U.S. trading relationship"

“He’s going to sit in the middle of some of the biggest financial and trade decisions in Canada, and to have a Manitoba boy in there can only mean great things for the province,”

Why, yes he is! He already has been.

Bring cheap Chinese or Mexican /slave labour manufactured products straight up the NAU highway into the US and Canada.
The biggest beneficiary? Business! -cheap wages, tax subsidized infrastructure.

Biggest losers? You and me, the working masses. We get, lower wages, no health care, poor environmental and living conditions. This is why we have been waving good-bye to our middle class lifestyle and our decent standard of living for years now.
