Caught this guy dumping Frac Fluid on Rt 19 approximately 4 miles north of Washington, PA. He was parked and out of the truck with water running when I drove by. I had my video camera because I was on my way to my son’s hockey game at Bethel Park. When he saw me stop and search for my camera, he shut the water off, got in his truck and drove away. This was Sunday morning around 9:39 am on the 5th of December 2010. I called the PA DEP and registered a complaint.

Bob Cesca, Host of the Bob and Elvis show, recently wrote an Op-Ed over at the Huffington Post that supports the reasoning behind the photo to the right; The goal is simple re-write history and scare the white people by manufacturing the racial boogie man. You know  “a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture.”

And it works. So well, in fact, that it’s still actively used on AM talk radio and on Fox News Channel as a ratings-grabber, not to mention as a recruitment tool for the various tea party groups. If you can effectively convince the majority race that they’re being somehow victimized by the significantly smaller minority, you have a seriously powerful (and clearly immoral) psycho-weapon in your arsenal.

This year has to be some kind of high water mark for white antagonism against minorities, and evidence that the Republicans, along with the array of far-right apparatchiks, don’t really have a serious agenda for governing to sell or, for that matter, anything of value to say. And so they do this. They continue to tap into a mother lode of white majority self-pity and inchoate rage as a form of spackle over the gaping holes in their ridiculous policy arguments.

Bob Cesca is right, there are “gaping holes”; however the gaping holes are between the ears of …..well just watch the video.

I have a solution to all of this hateful rhetoric. The far right-wing, race baiting, tea- party attending, lap dogs should be required to wear shock collars and the critical thinking majority should control the remotes.

Additional charges have been filed against the “girlfriend”, who according to Granville County Sheriff Brindell B. Wilkins, accompanied suspected burglar Clayton “Clay” Michael Ellington, 29, during a recent attempted home invasion on Dove Road in Creedmoor, NC. According to court documents, Paige Allen Brummitt has been charged with Felony Conspiracy for her role in the June 1st, home invasion.

There is now disturbing, conclusive evidence the U.S. Government and Military actively engaged in a cover-up of the  atrocities  committed at Gitmo.

I haven’t been posting on this potentially game-changing story because the details are complex and the information overload enormous and I want to make sure I get every iota right. Stay tuned for more in the coming days. But Scott Horton’s latest piece zeroes in on a very specific detail: the weird autopsies. Horton claimed that the families of the dead prisoners requested the missing necks and heart and kidneys of the deceased for a second autopsy. Rowan Scarborough at Human Events, contacted the military to debunk the story.

For O'Keefe it ain't easy being sleazy, TWICE!

 

Alleging a plot to tamper with phones in Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office in the Hale Boggs Federal Building in downtown New Orleans, the FBI arrested four people Monday, including James O’Keefe, 25, a conservative filmmaker whose undercover videos at ACORN field offices severely damaged the advocacy group’s credibility.

Also arrested were Joseph Basel, Stan Dai and Robert Flanagan, all 24. Flanagan is the son of William Flanagan, who is the acting U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Louisiana, the office confirmed. All four were charged with entering federal property under false pretenses with the intent of committing a felony.

According to the FBI affidavit, Flanagan and Basel entered the federal building at 500 Poydras Street about 11 a.m. Monday, dressed as telephone company employees, wearing jeans, fluorescent green vests, tool belts, and hard hats. When they arrived at Landrieu’s 10th floor office, O’Keefe was already in the office and had told a staffer he was waiting for someone to arrive.

When Flanagan and Basel entered the office, they told the staffer they were there to fix phone problems. At that time, the staffer, referred to only as Witness 1 in the affadavit, observed O’Keefe positioning his cell phone in his hand to videotape the operation. O’Keefe later admitted to agents that he recorded the event.

After being asked, the staffer gave Basel access to the main phone at the reception desk. The staffer told investigators that Basel manipulated the handset. He also tried to call the main office phone using his cell phone, and said the main line wasn’t working. Flanagan did the same.

They then told the staffer they needed to perform repair work on the main phone system and asked where the telephone closet was located. The staffer showed the men to the main General Services Administration office on the 10th floor, and Flanagan and Basel went in. There, a GSA employee asked for the men’s credentials, after which they stated they left them in their vehicle.

The U.S. Marshal’s Service apprehended all four men shortly thereafter.

Oh no you ditta! But seriously, the cherry on top? There will be a bit of a role reversal if  Jimmy boy enters prison. Dang,  where will his camera be then? (Don’t answer that)  One look at the case against him, you know he’s in BIG trouble  in more ways than one…

Gates confirms Blackwater presence in Pakistan

Source: PressTV

US Defense Secretary Robert Gates confirms that American security firms Xe Services LLC, formerly known as Blackwater, and DynCorp have been operating in Pakistan.

The two firms are operating in private capacities, Gates said on Thursday, adding that the companies were abiding by Pakistani laws.

However, he said that if the Pakistani parliament votes for a ban on the presence of the firms, the US government would comply with it.

Blackwater won notoriety for having gone on a shooting rampage in a heavily trafficked Baghdad intersection in September 2007 killing more than a dozen Iraqi civilians.

Blackwater Worldwide changed its name to Xe Services LLC in February 2009, after it came under international criticism for its disregard for civilian lives.

Two former Blackwater mercenaries have also been charged with the 2009 murder of two Afghan civilians in Kabul.

Asad Durani, former head of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), had earlier told Press TV that the notorious firm, Blackwater, was involved in the deadly drone attacks on Pakistani territories, which usually result in civilian casualties.

“I learned somewhere that these people are employed certainly for…the logistic support at the drone bases. That is understandable,” Durani said earlier in January.

Gates, meanwhile, said that Washington is considering sharing its Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) technology with Pakistan.

“These UAVs are useful and we have a budget for them,” Gates said in an interview with a privately-run Pakistani television on Thursday.

He claimed that the drones had proved productive in Afghanistan and Iraq.

“We are working together with Pakistan army in this connection,” Gates said, adding that discussions were underway with Pakistan military leadership on technical matters in this regard, a Press TV correspondent reported late Thursday.

Defense officials in his delegation later said that the US will provide 12 Shadow drones to Pakistan.

The Shadow drone is about 3.3 meters (11 feet) long and has a wing-span of 4.2 meters (14 feet), with sensors and cameras feeding video images back to operators on the ground.

Wow, let something catastrophic happen to a poor nation and bam!, it doesn’t take long for some to see dollar signs or at the very least suggest an agenda, their agenda. Oh wait, that’s disaster capitalism, silly me.

The U.S. government response should be bold and decisive. It must mobilize U.S. civilian and military capabilities for short-term rescue and relief and long-term recovery and reform. President Obama should tap high-level, bipartisan leadership. Clearly former President Clinton, who was already named as the U.N. envoy on Haiti, is a logical choice. President Obama should also reach out to a senior Republican figure, perhaps former President George W. Bush, to lead the bipartisan effort for the Republicans.

While on the ground in Haiti, the U.S. military can also interrupt the nightly flights of cocaine to Haiti and the Dominican Republic from the Venezuelan coast and counter the ongoing efforts of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to destabilize the island of Hispaniola. This U.S. military presence, which should also include a large contingent of U.S. Coast Guard assets, can also prevent any large-scale movement by Haitians to take to the sea in dangerous and rickety watercraft to try to enter the U.S. illegally.

Yeah, prevent those rickety watercraft and those illegals, WTF. And sure, let’s send good ole bi-partisan, private contract profiteer, Bush. He’s good at flyovers and that’s about the extent of his humanity, remember Katrina? Haiti deserves aid not a takeover and it damn sure dosen’t need the likes of  Xe (Blackwater), Halliburton or KBR.

The Heritage Foundation has really lost their edge as well as their collective minds and how quickly they forgot just what former President Bush did for Haiti.

The Hindu | The suicide strike on the key U.S. intelligence base in Afghanistan had hallmarks of an operation carried out by a national intelligence service, a leading U.S. think-tank has said, apparently hinting that it could be the handiwork of Pakistan’s ISI or its rogue elements.

“The hit was by all account a masterful piece of trade craft beyond the known abilities of a group like Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan,” U.S. think-tank Stratfors said.

“The Jordanians penetration of the CIA was less like the product of an insurgency than an operation carried out by a national intelligence service. And this is the most troubling aspect for the U.S.,” the think tank said.

The speculation about a possible ISI hand in the suicide attack is being traced back to U.S. and Afghan government sources who said in the analysis of explosives used, it was found they were of standard military grade which points to the ISI.

Once again, a foreign news agency is reporting a crucial story concerning our “War on Terror” and yet, not one U.S. media source picked up the story with the exception of  BlacklistedNews (internet only). As a novice blogger, it has become painfully clear to me the U.S.’s mainstream media is woefully inadequate ( insert sarcasm) and as a citizen it scares the hell out of me.

Why does or should this matter?  Would it surprise you to learn that after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, the Times of India was reporting the former chief of ISI, Lt Gen Mahmud Ahmad had a connection to the 9/11 attacks and Mohammed Atta, the alleged ring-leader of the attacks ? What makes this so important is the information was confirmed by the FBI, but the story went virtually unreported in the U.S. and the ISI money trail [1] was dismissed by the 9/11 Commission as having “little practical significance”.

The person(s) that financed the largest terror attack on U.S. soil has little significance? Consider the following excerpt from the Times of India story, circa August 1, 2003. [2]

NEW DELHI: India played a key role in providing US authorities the information that funding for the September 11 attacks came from Pakistan. A top FBI counter-terrorism official told the US Senate governmental affairs committee on Thursday that investigators have “traced the origin of the funding of 9/11 back to financial accounts in Pakistan.’’

John S Pistole, deputy assistant director of the FBI’s counter-terrorism division, however, did not specify how those accounts in Pakistan were funded, or the role of Pakistani elements. The Times of India first reported on October 10, 2001 that India told the US that some $100,000 had been wired to the leader of the hijackers, Mahmud Atta, by British-born terrorist Ahmad Saeed Umar Sheikh.

Indian authorities also told the US that the trail led back from Sheikh to the then chief of ISI, Lt Gen Mahmud Ahmad who was subsequently forced to retire by Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf.

If the name Umar Sheikh doesn’t ring a bell, he is the mastermind behind Daniel Pearl’s kidnapping. It was alleged by Sheikh at his trial that he was sheltered by the ISI for over a week before he was arrested by Pakistani police on February 12, 2002.

Now consider the following information contained in this video regarding former ISI’s Lt Gen. Mahumd Ahmad’s visit to the U.S. and his whereabouts on the morning of the World Trade Center attacks. Hint: He was on Capitol Hill.

Truth really is stranger than fiction, the only problem is you have to have access to the truth to understand when, you are being told fiction and I don’t see the truth being told anytime soon.
