Watching Canada Coming To An End!

Harper Lets Bush Army Rule With Martial Law In Quebec!
Connie Fogal, Leader of the Canadian Action Party, says,

"So much for conspiracy theories! Now we have the ugly truth fully exposed. The US military really does now run Canada."
The US military is on Canadian soil forbidding the Municipality of Papineauville from renting a hall to the Council of Canadians who planned a public meeting to be held the day before the Three Amigos meet in Montebello, Quebec, Canada August 20, 21 2007 to plan their next moves in the dismantling of their respective countries of Canada, USA and Mexico. CAP's leader said, "Bad enough that our RCMP and the Quebec provincial police force would apply offensive Canadian law to prevent a legitimate meeting of dissenting citizens. Totally untenable that a foreign army assumes jurisdiction on our land. But this we knew from the Binational Planning Agreement begun in 2002 that saw Canada crawl on its belly and permit the USA military to enter our land whenever it deems necessary. " "Does anyone still believe that our federal leaders have not thrown away our sovereignty? That from Chretien (Liberal) to Martin (Liberal) to Harper (Conservative), the Prime Ministers of this our land have not been committing treason behind closed doors? How otherwise would it be possible that a proud, sovereign, and free nation would see a foreign army on its soil interfering with the right of Canadians to assemble and to speak?" "And, Canada's silent loyal opposition has meanwhile

been neither loyal nor an opposition ! US military on Canadian soil ordering Canadians did not happen overnight!"

Connie Fogal, Leader of the Canadian Action Party, urges all Canadians to say NO to the criminalization of dissent on our land. She pointed out, "So they put up a fence! So they impose a 25 kilometre no-go zone! So they halt vehicles with five or more people in them! So we be on the edge propelling the power of our inner energy to stare at them through their barriers! We can just stand and stare! There is something very ludicrous about three leaders of alleged free countries hiding from their citizens."
Connie Fogal , Leader of the Canadian Action Party, encourages all liberty loving Americans, and Mexicans, as well as Canadians to protest this third annual meeting of national leaders who are bent on destroying our constitutional and civil rights. She urges,"Let us join hands in peaceful right of protest, standing firm and tall, determined and strong in acknowledgement that our nations belong to us the people,and that no shadow government, no military, no treacherous politicians or officials are going to take them away from us.

Banker Plot To Remove FDR Was A Ruse
By Henry Makow, PhD, Jewish Canadian Syndicated Writer and Personality
The story that Wall Street bankers planned to overthrow FDR in 1933 still makes the rounds in 2007. Last week, the BBC named "Dubya's" grandfather, Prescott Bush as one of the conspirators. Clearly, the Illuminati bankers staged the "planned coup" to give FDR credibility as Wall Street's nemesis. As I will show, they routinely used such tricks to build up their Presidential puppet. The NWO apparently still considers Roosevelt and his model of Big Government as a propaganda asset. Fascism takes the form of socialism, as we have seen with Communism and Nazism. The conspirators (members of the "American Liberty League") approached retired Major General Smedley Butler to use 500,000 veterans to remove FDR and become a Mussolini-like figure himself. Smedley Butler was the LAST man you would ask if you were serious about such a coup. However, if you wanted someone to expose your coup (as he did; thought it "smacked of treason,") Butler was the "goto" person. The most decorated Marine in history; Gen. Smedley Butler recently had been forced to resign by Herbert Hoover for calling Mussolini a "mad dog" and warning that his fascist cohorts "were about to break loose in Europe." Butler refused to retract his remarks and thus became a national hero overnight. Nor was Butler fond of Wall Street, touring the nation with a speech stating that the bankers used the US army as "gangsters for capitalism" -- thugs and debt collectors: "Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints," Butler said. "The best he could do was .. operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents." ("War is a Racket" 1933) "There was definitely something crazy about the whole affair," remarked Curt Gentry. "Butler who had gained prominence for speaking out / against fascism/, being asked to become an American Duce." ("J. Edgar Hoover" p.203) Nevertheless, Gentry and most other historians accepted the tale, indicating that they function as highly paid flacks. The story received its widest currency in Jules Archer's book "The Plot to Seize the White House" (1973). Judging from Archer's other works, he is either the Illuminati's best propagandist or biggest dupe (or both.) His other subjects include such "defenders of the people" as: Trotsky, Mao Tse Tung; Chou En Lai; and Ho Chi Minh. He has also penned books about such elitesponsored movements as feminism, civil rights and environmentalism. WHO WAS FDR? For the answer, we are indebted to a book by a courageous honest, publicspirited New York doctor, Emmanuel Josephson: "The Strange Death of Franklin D. Roosevelt" (1948). FDR was the scion of two Illuminati families, the Delanos and the Roosevelts. He was related to a dozen US Presidents: four on the Roosevelt side and eight on the Delano side. He was a third cousin of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. These families have some Jewish antecedents but they also have Dutch, German, Swedish and principally English blood. FDR's mother's father, Warren Delano made a sizable fortune in the opium trade. His father James Roosevelt was Vice President of a railway and director of several companies. FDR was a spoiled brat who could always change the rules to suit his whims. He was tutored privately, and failed law school but allowed to enter the bar anyway. He never held a real job. In the 1920's, he helped float some stock market scams. As Governor and later President, he was extremely suggestible, evasive and shifty. Louis Howe created his public persona and did his thinking for him. He was FDR's "alter and wiser ego." (102) FDR had a small army of speech writers and sometimes there were screw-ups. For his Democratic nomination acceptance in 1932, he was handed two speeches with diametrically opposed views and read them both. (157) After his attack of encephalomyelitis, the Rockefellers gave him a health spa at Warm Springs, Georgia. They subsequently funneled millions of dollars to FDR in the guise of contributions to his "foundation" to help the sick. (Dr. Josephson found that the institution did not accept charity cases and didn't issue financial statements.) (118-ff) In Josephson's words, "Roosevelt was magnificently bribed to run for office. By the end of 1930, some $700,000 was poured into the coffers of the Foundation ...[FDR] was the pathetic puppet of conspirators scheming the destruction of cism, thus throwing the Anti-Nazis and Anti-Fascists in the Roosevelt camp." (167) "As the perverters of public opinion expected, the gullible public raged at Hearst and flocked to the standards of Roosevelt, blind to the fact that he was giving them another of the same brand of dictatorship." (167) The antagonism was an utter sham. Hearst employed FDR's son Elliot, and his daughter and her husband! Similarly the public enmity of the munitions manufacturing Duponts was also a sham. Ethel Dupont married FDR Jr. ! "The Liberty League was then set up for the ostensible purpose of attacking Roosevelt and fighting his re-election. This served to throw the entire pacifist vote into Roosevelt's camp and helped reassure his re-election." (169) Clearly the "Fascist Coup" was another clever ploy invented by the "publicity men." CONCLUSION Curtis Dall was a banker and FDR's son-in-law. He portrays the President not as a leader but as a "quarterback" with little actual power. The "coaching staff" consisted of a coterie of handlers ("advisers" like Louis Howe, Bernard Baruch and Harry Hopkins) who represented the international banking cartel. For Dall, FDR ultimately was a traitor manipulated by "World Money" and motivated by conceit and personal ambition. The 1933 Fascist Coup is indicative of the trouble the elite takes to manipulate the public. After FDR, no President (until George W. Bush) did more to take America down the road to tyranny. Today we have to take attacks on Bush with a grain of salt. They are designed to drive the public into the open arms of Illuminati puppets Hilary Clinton or Barak Obama. In fact, much of the conflict in the world today may be generated and controlled by the Illuminati central bankers. ———

democracy and the establishment of an American monarchy." (95, 124) In return under FDR, the US Treasury spent hundreds of millions bribing Saudi King Ibn Saud and building oil infrastructure in Saudi Arabia to benefit Standard Oil. (262-263) Josephson said the basic doctrines of the Rockefeller Empire are "feudalistic monarchic government" ... "monopoly of every necessity of life and of national existence, and absolute dictatorship..." (86-87) The rich must "divide and rule": " The people must be dealt with not as Americans but as minorities set at each other's throats, labor vs. Capital, Black vs. White, Catholic vs. protestant, Christian vs. Jew for e.g." (87) He could have added male vs. female and gay vs. straight. FEIGNED OPPOSITION FROM WALL STREET Rich degenerate inbreds running for President naturally pretend to defend the public good. Naturally their bankersponsors are willing to feign displeasure and opposition. FDR learned the game from his cousin Theodore Roosevelt who pretended to be a "trust buster," while remaining a creation of the trusts. The contributors to FDR's 1932 campaign include a Who's Who of the US business elite, the same people who supposedly tried to overthrow him a year later: Hearst, Rockefeller, Morgan, Baruch, Du Pont, Astor. In 1933, a group of "publicity men" advised that Fascism was becoming unpopular in America and FDR could score points by opposing the Nazis. "They suggested that Hearst and his publications launch a sham attack on Roosevelt and at the same time pretend to support Nazism and Fas-

The Americanization Of Canada We, the people have lost our ability to protest!
I received an e-mail from a friend of mine the other day. I have heard my friends, as a group, decribed as ‘extremist;’ this one, I suppose, would fit that profile. After all, he spends much of his time studying and reading about the ills of our world and its political regime structure. He also obsesses constantly over the evils of the American Empire, and how those evils have tentacles that reach around the world; from Iraq and Kuwait to Germany and Japan, and even into our own backyard. This email involved the upcoming meeting in Quebec this month between G.W.B, Prime Minisher Harper, and President Calderon of Mexico. The subject of said meeting is a little advertised creation of a North American Union. As the US dollar slowly collapses under the weight of never-ending ever-rending disastrous military debacle, the two countries of Mexico and Canada are being used to prop up the crippled American system. Of course, the conspiracy culture of Canada protests this, and vehemently, as another step towards the New World Order—which it is—and as a loss of Canadian culture… Although, alas, methinks Canada is officially without a culture anyways. (I DON’T THINK SO! — Editor) “We are in extreme danger unless we, the people, WAKE UP and take back OUR gov't.” I’ve copied part of the e-mail here, and I’ve emboldened a part of which I’d like you to take note. The Canadian patriot that sent me this should also be aware of another document that begins with “We, the People,” because so much of the conspiracy counter-culture material posted on the Internet is American, and “We, the People” it’s the most oft-quoted part of the US Constitution Preamble. I guess that this means that “We, the People”, are in grave danger. Further, to support his claim that Canada was being swarmed by American and Mexican dignitaries with nefarious purposes, five links to American websites were included in the body of the e-mail. The last link led to this: “To: The Honourable David Emerson, Minister of International Trade: C/O The Prime Minister of Canada's Office. 1.) I oppose the Security and Prosperity Partnership, also known as the North American Union. 2.) I oppose the NAFTA Highway proposal and/or construction. 3.) All North American citizens must be adequately informed of any past, present and/or future proposals, signing of documents, and/or any other information pertaining to the Security and Prosperity Partnership/NAFTA Highway put forth by their respective governments, past, present and future. Transparency of our governments is of utmost importance to me. 4.) I strongly urge that the matter be put to a national referendum in Canada. Sincerely,” Of course this is a petition. (I’ve fixed the butchered grammar.) It’s originally an American petition. The NAFTA Highway is in Texas right now, and is the only tangible point of contention. I guess having #4 tacked on and addressing it to Emerson makes it Canadian. I don’t see how Canadians can oppose this of we can’t even organize our own protest. I don’t see how Emerson can stop a highway’s By James vanZandwijk co nstr uc - jvanzgpc@hotmail.com tion in Texas. In 2005, Paul Celucci, the former American Ambassador to Canada, remarked that Canada had lost sovereignty over her skies because Paul Martin couldn’t agree to a newly reawakened Star Wars program. If all of our major protestations are composed of what the American government may or may not have done to mostly American people in an American city on September 11, 2001, then our conspiracy mill has given over our protestation sovereignty.

Goodbye, Canada. R.I.P.!!

Toronto Astrologer Stock Prediction Right On Again!!
Last issue we warned our readers who may have invested in MGM Mirage that their gains from November 2006 when it was priced at $54. which then rose to $88 should no longer expect to see a substantial increase. Our prediction at the time was for the stock to be in good shape until June 2007. Thus, in July 2007, it dived from $88 to $70. The best astrologer whose financial newsletter tops 200 financial newsletters in the U.S., namely Arch Crawford of crawfordperspectives.com makes $500,000 per year. Arch appears on the CNBC stock channel; he is the former gold specialist for Merrill Lynch stockbrokers who moved to Tuscon to work for himself. His prediction is the only astrologer I can find who also predicted a 911 event as I did in Aug. 20/2001. I don’t! But I do make the odd prediction and MGM Mirage was the only one I’ve made regarding stocks which I don’t look at for North Americans stocks whose market is one of the worst on the globe.

A MEETING OF ONE (dictator)
By Scott C. Tips Let’s cut to the chase. The 30th Session of the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) in Rome, Italy just ended (July 2-7, 2007) and heaping platefuls of Codex standards and guidelines were advanced to their final stages as if starving people were gathered around a banquet table. It did not matter what was heaped on the plate, it got passed to the table regardless. It also did not matter that there were some 451 country delegation members and another 61 INGO delegate-observers from around the World in attendance or pretend attendance, the CAC Chairman, Dr. Claude Mosha, plowed forward on a one-man mission from God pushing aside any and all objections - excuse me, he called them "reservations" - that were made. It would not have mattered if a plate of rotten tomatoes had been presented to him for approval, he would have approved them too. In this one meeting, the Commission was rendered irrelevant as a meaningful "approving" body, for it merely rubberstamped without thought what had been done by others. Mimi the Gorilla could have done just as good a job. There, you have read the essence of what happened at the Codex meeting as Sepp Hasslberger and I - who comprised the National Health Federation delegation attending this meeting - saw it. And unless you are a glutton for punishment, you need not read further. For those of you with more time than sense, please read on. Blinders and Earplugs Unnecessary Chairman Claude Mosha was most definitely a man on a mission. And that mission was to take that hill . . . with the hill being a pile of standards and related texts submitted by the various Codex Committees for approval by the Commission itself. Attacking the pile like a man possessed, the Chairman considered each standard passed up from the committee level for adoption here only long enough to pronounce the words "adopted," so that he could then move on to the next standard for its approval. This approach was exactly the same one taken by Mosha’s predecessor chairman, except that in this case, the adoption process for the standards seemed more frantic and even hastier, if that could be possible. As mentioned, formal objections by member states are – under Codex procedural rules – sufficient to stop progress towards adoption. However, Chairman Mosha waved off objections by simply recharacterizing them as "reservations" and promising that they would be included in the Final Report of the meeting. This promise really amounted to nothing more than a semi-polite way of telling the delegate to get lost and quit bothering him. In this staccato fashion, standard after standard was "approved." From the standard for Maximum Levels for Tin in Canned Foods and Canned Beverages to the standard for Maximum Residue Limits for Pesticides, they were approved as if full or even partial consideration of them beforehand would be heretical. Curiously enough, though, there were also standards on the list waiting to be revoked – among them one establishing maximum permitted limits of cadmium. It struck me as ironic that toxic cadmium will be given free rein while beneficial zinc is waiting in the wings for its maximum permitted limits to be established. But then, what can you say about a meeting that mostly consisted of uttering the words, "And the next item on our agenda is . . . "? Death by Consensus After having seen how the Chairman had mistreated the few member delegations raising objections, especially the Paraguayan delegate who had raised a legitimate objection the very first day of the meeting ("The document [Proposed draft Working Principles for Risk Analysis for Food Safety] should be returned to Steps 6 and 7 since there wasn’t a broad consensus," he had said), I could not resist approaching the Paraguayan delegate at the reception held that evening after the first day’s meeting. I wanted to discuss with him what had happened. He was, I told him and his fellow Paraguayans, absolutely correct to have raised the lack of consensus issue. Under Codex Rules of Procedure, he should have prevailed and the proposed draft document should have been refused approval and returned to Step 6 or 7 (out of 8 steps, with the 8th step being the final one). Moreover, I continued, he should stand his ground as the Codex definition of consensus is "the absence of sustained opposition." And the World Trade Organization itself states that consensus is reached "if no Member, present at the meeting when the decision is taken, formally objects to the proposed decision." He therefore had the absolute right to insist that the document not be approved. Interestingly enough, at the next day’s meeting, the Paraguayan delegate was even firmer and more strident in his objection to a standard that was up for adoption, commenting that "the definition of consensus changes every day." Nevertheless, despite this member state’s clear objection, which should have stopped the standard in its tracks, the standard was approved. Alms for the Rich A significant amount of time was spent by the CAC leadership on the CAC budget and the need to rein in expenses. To that end, one of the vicechairmen chairing this portion of the meeting called for more contributions and mentioned the CAC’s idea to place a maximum upper limit on the number of committees as well as the number of meetings. So, too, the CAC vice chairman gave a presentation on the Codex Trust Fund, which is administered by the World Health Organization and donates money to supposedly impoverished and deserving countries so that they may attend and participate in Codex meetings. The word "supposedly" has been added in here because I noticed in the fine print of the report that the hard-working taxpayers of Europe, North America, and Australia/New Zealand have been graciously financing the participation of such struggling countries as China (with its US$1.33 trillion monetary reserves) and that insult to the African continent called Zimbabwe (whose dictatorship has murdered thousands and taken a once-prosperous country into abject beggary and misery). One could start cutting some fat right there. But, for an organization that, rumor has it, even bounced some of those checks given to the actually-deserving member delegations, there are simple, commonsense approaches to money management that could result in meaningful economies and the creation of a sinking fund to support CAC’s efforts. (Continued page 15) While sitting through this part of the meet-

Bush-Man Paulsen Begging Chinese To Help U.S. Again!!!
The only stock prediction I did in 8 years was MGM Mirage last November when I said it would rise. It wasn't just astrology being used -- Kerkorian sold his 9% of General Motors to the Catholic Bank (Bank of America) and invested in his pre-owned corporation MGM. I knew he had a pile of money to invest in this, his personal favourite majorityowned company. The price jumped from $54.00 to $88.50 about two weeks ago. In the current issue -- on the bottom of page three I reminded readers in a running commentary from issue to issue in the meantime -- that I had said June was the last month when it would rise -- I said it would not gain significantly from now on -- since last week's issue -- it has fallen from $82 down to $70. at one point today. So I called that one right as an astrologer. The larger problem why I have never predicted any gain from North American stocks is because the U.S. is in such total debt -- Bush's government went from 1.5 trillion in debt to 8 trillion -- or about a loss of one trillion dollars each year. That's just the government -- the economy has gone into further debt and the current parlance on Wall Street and other economists rates the U.S. population as owing $360 trillion!! In the meantime, the Chinese lost $300 billion from a trillion that they owned in U.S. monies because the U.S. dollar devalued by that much in the last couple years. Currently, Paulsen, former Goldman Sachs CEO was paid $30 million to so-called retire from that company to become the latest Republican Party financial official appointed from Goldman Sachs to be Treasury Secretary (last December). Immediately, he grabbed Bernanke the new Federal Reserve Chairman who replaced Greenspan and flew off to China where they got on their knees to beg the Chinese to keep buying their rapidly devaluating U.S. bonds which they've bought in the hundreds of billions of dollars to keep their customer, the U.S. afloat. The Chinese thought about that for awhile and then said "yeah, okay, we'll keep buying." However, a month later or so, they were still thinking about this problem and decided that yes, they would buy more U.S. bonds but they wanted more than the 5% return on the ongoing watered down U.S. currency as they no longer count the actual cash their printing presses are running for economists to count. So, the Chinese have established a 2.5 trillion dollar account to buy U.S. shares -- but they won't buy just any junk shares of U.S. corporations -- they are very conservative and they are buying tangible things like: gold, silver, copper and other valuable commodities that only go up in value. The CNBC stocks channel (owned by GE) and working with the Wall Street Journal and the NY Stock Exchange (NYSE) they made commentary about the possibility of just this scenario -- China -- needing the U.S. as a customer -- they would therefore pump some money back into the NYSE to save the nation. Incredible. The FBI stopped investigating the Chinese spying on IBM's secrets when the Chinese started buying up IBM shares and the odd spin-off IBM divisions that they claim not to need. Not just the NYSE but stock exchanges around the globe were in worse shape than New York they gleefully announced but they never mention that Chinese shares are not in such debt-jeopardy. These guys in New York have borrowed themselves and the rest of the world into derivative disaster and there's no more debt on the globe they can sell off. What will happen when this $750 trillion in global paper debt is "called"? This week it was announced that Paulsen is making still begging trip to China to accommodate that country’s wishes due to its economic power. This time, his excuse for going to China was to tell Congress that the Chinese have to increase the value of their currency to make it easier for U.S. business to cut into their trade deficit with China. This was a total laugh and CNBC Stocks channel experts agreed that a higher currency for China would not help the useless business and industrial format the U.S. has lowered itself into. — VPF / Toronto Astrologer
more and more Baby Boomers retire and this debt becomes due. However, Uncle Sam's admittedly huge unfunded mandates are dwarfed by little-understood but truly colossal derivatives debt, which now totals over $345 trillion about 9-times the Gross Domestic Product of the entire world! Derivatives are debt based on other debt. For example, banks commonly package groups of home mortgages together and sell this combined debt as Residential Mortgage Backed Securities (RMBS). Banks in Japan and China are major purchasers. Unfortunately, each time debt is repacked and resold it grows, in some cases exponentially creating an enormous, global pyramid of debt thousands of times greater than the value of the underlying assets. Now the $345 trillion question is, "What happens if the underlying assets upon which all of this pyramiding debt is based declines in value?" Or, "who gets stuck holding the worthless hot potato of uncollectible debt?"

The Derivatives Debt Crisis Nobody Wants To Talk About
It's no secret that in today's society, everyone from the family next door, to major corporations, to the U.S. government is deeply in debt. But while some debt statistics are widely reported, such as our $8+ trillion national debt, other debt figures are virtually never mentioned. In the Financial Privacy Report we have frequently discussed Uncle Sam's enormous, unfunded liabilities - including mandatory Social Security and Medicare payments . . . government and military pensions . . . interest on the national debt . . . and other hidden but very real government debt. Altogether this debt totals an incredible $60-$65 trillion - or about $500,000 for every U.S. family. It's doubtful these obligations will ever be paid and even the attempt to do so could plunge our economy into hyperinflation. That's scary enough and raises lots of reason for concern, as

Mind Control & Psychic Abuse
There has been a great deal of talk this past few years about psychic abuse. Many people dont truly understand what this is. Our medics have no idea and really believe that all these people are just plain crazy. Not true at all. We all have a certain level of crazy or insane thinking in everyone of us but psychic abuse is not a part of that although it can surly make you crazy if you do not understand it. Especially Psychic possession. Physic possession is when another person is constantly on your mind. This has happened to me many times and years ago I nearly went nuts with it. In fact I signed myself into the North York General Hospitals Psychic ward for three days just to have a doctor tell me I needed to be medicated. This doctor was terrified of the entire situation. Why? How can we correct a problem if we fear it? Not possible. Examples: 1.. A few years ago a young girl came to me from Richmond Hill. She was shouting and screaming at people whom where not present. This girl would have total spazz attacks, completely out of the blue. She would do horrid things to herself, like cut herself up and risk her life, when these spazzes would occur. One day she came to my home and had to use the bathroom. She was in there for over three hours. All we could here form the bathroom was this child yelling and fighting at people whom were not present. She was terrified and it took quite a while to get her to come out of the room to talk. Finally we got her to come into the living room and I asked her whom she was talking to. She explained that in her mind she was having arguments with her mother, father and

aunt. These people did not like her personality or attitude and were constantly on her case about it. I asked her for her mothers phone number. I dialed the number to find that the three {mother, father, aunt} were having a visit and were discussing this girls problems. Immediately I began to work with this child, helping her to understand telepathy. She understood very quickly and was able to stop the conversations and arguments with the skills I taught her. She is now a married woman, living in New Jersey, healthy, happy and not on any medications. She is also one of the best psychics I have encountered. 2. A year ago I asked a person to help out with LoveCry. He was in agreement with that but wanted many changes to the way we were doing things that we did not agree with at all. He literally wanted to take over and run the show. This person did not have the experience needed to do this so we opposed. Here we talk about psychic abuse a great deal and this person was well educated in the subject. He did not care whom he hurt to get what he wanted and he began to play head games with all of us. His goal was to have our situation here explode from the inside. Some of us already knew how to protect ourselves but some were not so great at it yet so there was some damage done. The point is that he was on all of our minds for several months. I spoke to him many times about it, as the kids and I were getting very ill from his consistent psychic head games. He was a very good player. Psychic abuse is one of the most dangerous abuses within our society today as it can not be see, herd or felt other then within our minds and emotions. No visual or sound evidence of the abuse is shown. Many people are suffering from psychic abuse on a daily basis and have no idea it is even happening. The rate of what seem to be normal people being charged with violent offenses or being admitted to hospital, put on prescribed drugs or using more dangerous alternative drugs and alcohol has risen phenomenally in the past decade. Psychic abuse is one of the main reasons for these life horrors, and is most used in the art of sexual seduction and mind control. Learn to protect your mind from this hideous abuse. Very soon a new movie will be hitting our theaters. This movie has been taken from one of the most controversial book written during the 90's entitled The Celestine Prophecies by James Greenfield. Below is a piece I believe everyone in our society needs to know about and learn to help get abuse in our families and communities stopped. As long as we are being manipulated and manipulating we will be abusive as it is within our free will we find peace. In therapy I learned that the techniques used to control me during my abuse years was no different then the ones used on the prisoners of war in the second world war. These controls are done Psychically, Verbally and if it gets worse which most times it does Physical and Physical Sexual Abuses, Terrorism and Torture. 1. Sexual Seduction 2. Intimidation 3.

No Sex Please, You’re A Carnivore!
A new phenomenon in New Zealand is taking the idea of "you are what you eat" to the extreme. "Vegansexuals" is the name given to people who not only don't eat any meat or anmal products, but also choose not to be sexually intimate with non-vegan partners. Their reasoning is that the bodies of nonvegans are made up of the dead animals they have consumed. The co-director of the New Zealand Centre for Human and Animal Studies at Canterbury University, Annie Potts, said she coined the term after doing research on the lives of "cruelty-free consumers". "Cruelty-Free Consumption in New Zealand: A National Report on the Perspectives and Experiences of Vegetarians and other Ethical Consumers" asked 157 people nationwide about everything from battery chickens to sexual preferences. Many female respondents described being

"It's a whole new thing _ I have not come across it before," said Potts. One vegan respondent from Christchurch said: '"I believe we are what we consume, so I really struggle with non-vegans when it comes to sexual contact." Another Christchurch vegan said she found non-vegans attractive, but would not want to be physically close to them. "I would not want to be intimate with someone whose body is literally made up from the bodies of animals who have died for their sustenance," she said.

units made up of men in Arab garb with orders to attack resistance men deep inside Palestinian territories. On the outskirts of Gaza, members of such squads often abduct farmers and hand them over to Israel's internal intelligence service, Shabak, for interrogation. There, the men are routinely coerced to supply information about the resistance. Yediot Aharonot recently admitted that Palestinians were being blackmailed by the Shabak into working as informers. Such units have been operating for a long time in the West Bank. They are called Duvdevan (Hebrew for cherry) and are responsible for most of the target killings of leaders of the Palestinian resistance. Israeli television has just aired a documentary on the training of such units. Experts in makeup, language training and undercover operations help train Duvdevan members. The latter are often disguised as vegetable merchants and told to drive around in Mercedes pickups, the same type of vehicle favoured by Palestinian merchants. The occupation army now has the Arabists as well as the Samson units working undercover in Palestinian territories. As part of its clampdown on resistance movements, the Israeli army has reactivated the reconnaissance infantry unit dubbed Egoz (or shell nuts in Hebrew). The unit was created in 1993 to act as a spearhead in operations against Hizbollah in south Lebanon. Once an offshoot of the elite Golani Brigade, the unit was disbanded following Israel's withdrawal from south Lebanon in 2000. Now the unit has been reformed and told to patrol residential areas in various West Bank towns with orders to clash with resistance groups planning to fire at Israeli settlements or military targets. Egoz sets up road blocks on major streets in the West Bank in an attempt to arrest suspects and secure the roads leading to Israeli settlements. The Israeli army has also formed a unit, dubbed Kharouf, which shoots at any Palestinian acting suspiciously on main roads. Another unit, called Duchifat, combs areas prior to military assaults in the West Bank. The Israeli army still maintains several elite death squads, such as Sayeret Metkal, which is affiliated to the staff command and was led in the 1970s by Ehud Barak, current prime minister. In 1990, Barak said in a Russianlanguage bulletin handed out to Russian emigrants that he used to feel "immense joy" at the sight of his victims's heads being blown up. Former premiere Binyamin Netanyahu also served in the same unit, so did former Chief of Staff Moshe Yaalon. The Israeli army has turned Palestinian territories into a shooting range for the special units of the navy and the air force corps, a place where they hone their skills of target

Israeli Licence To Kill
Saleh Al-Naami, Al-Ahram Weekly Samson is the latest incarnation of Israel's policy of murdering Palestinians, relates Saleh Al-Naami July 27, 2007 The four men in traditional Arab garb didn't attract the attention of Ahmed Khalil, 27, when he drew near his farm not far from the town of Beit Hanun in northern Gaza. They looked like the vegetable merchants who usually come to buy produce in the early hours of the day. But as soon as they approached, two of them fired at his head with pistols equipped with silencers. He died immediately. The four men, disguised as Palestinians, were members of the most recent death squad formed by the Israeli government in Gaza to eliminate Palestinian fighters. The four thought that Khalil was a member of the resistance movement on his way to carry out an operation against an Israeli target, Israeli military sources later said. The Southern Zone Command of the Israeli army said that the death squad was formed on instructions of the Israeli mini-cabinet, which urged the army chiefs of staff to take more aggressive action against the resistance in Gaza, so as to end the firing of local-made rockets at Israeli settlements. The new death squad is code-named Samson. It is a new edition of the Arabists, or

Prof. Dershowitz An Admitted Assassin of Palestinians Escapes Prosecution In The U.S. With Bush Protection
ACADEMIA UNDER FIRE AS DEPAUL DENIES TENURE Published by cyrano2 at 9:52 am under Zionism, AIPAC, Academic Freedom Cyrano’s Journal Online and its semiautonomous subsections (Thomas Paine’s Corner, The Greanville Journal, CJO Avenger, and VoxPop) would be delighted to periodically email you links to the most recent material and timeless classics available on our diverse and comprehensive site. If you would like to subscribe, type “CJO subscription” in the subject line and send your email to JMiller@bestcyrano.org By George Beres When an outspoken professor at DePaul University was denied tenure in June, it was an important national story. Yet few publications outside Illinois gave it more than passing notice. Or it was minimized by placement, such as at the New York Times, where denial to Political Science Professor Norman Finkelstein was placed in the Arts Section. Those who bypass the story ignore the underlying issue—growing influence of Zionism– which knows no geographic nor cultural boundaries. It is a warning to academia, whose faculty everywhere need be concerned when a teacher is attacked by a colleague because of his views on Israel. Finkelstein, who happens to be Jewish, wrote the book, “The Holocaust Industry.” He is not a so-called holocaust denier, his parents having survived the Nazi death camps. But he suggests public image of the horror has been manipulated in behalf of illegal Israeli expansion. That got an orchestrated response from a professor 1,000 miles east of DePaul, Alan Dershowitz of Harvard, who urged denial of tenure because of supposed inconsistencies in Finkelstein’s research. Finkelstein’s department voted 9-3 to grant him tenure, backed by a 5-0 vote by the College Personnel Committee. A subsequent 4-3 vote by the school’s Board on Promotion and Tenure denied Finkelstein. President Dennis Holtschneider supported that decision. At the same time, tenure was denied lecturer Mehrene Larudee, supporter of Finkelstein, who unanimously had been approved by her department, the dean and the Personnel Committee. So what’s at play here? To those subjected to the influence of Zionist groups (including this writer), it appears their spokesman in eastern academia, Dershowitz, got his way. Possessor of strong views in behalf of Israel, his effort to label Finkelstein a self-hating Jew seems to have won out. He admits that last September he sent a letter to DePaul faculty members, urging they oppose tenure for Finkelstein. The letter accused him of a conspiracy with noted Jewish scholar, Noam Chomsky, to attack 10 Jewish scholars, allegedly calling them hucksters, hoaxers and extortionists. Differences between the campus protagonists surfaced with publication of Dershowitz’s book, “The Case for Israel,” which then was contradicted by Finkelstein’s book, “Beyond Chutzpah.” My experience with behavior of three Dershowitz-styled professors at the University of Oregon suggests the same verdict would have been reached there. I’ve found support for Israel has an intimidating effect on free expression on the college campus, as well as in society. Published letters from three Oregon professors labeled me anti-Semitic. They reacted to my published letter calling for creation of a Middle East Studies program to fill a serious vacuum in the curriculum, and to offset imbalance for the Israeli perspective in a new program of Judaic Studies. It should be of no consequence that two are Jewish and one a convert to Judaism. What should be of concern is that their behavior reflects patterns of Zionists who urge, “Describe as anti-Semitic anyone who in any way criticizes Israel.” I asked Prof. Francis Boyle of the University of Illinois Law School his reaction. He said: “It is a disgrace that DePaul succumbed to political pressure for this major injustice on Prof. Finkelstein. I have read almost every book he has written. He is an outstanding scholar who has had and will continue to have momentous impact on Middle East Studies. Prof. Dershowitz publicly admitted he serves on a Mossad Committee that authorizes murder and assassination of Palestinians, a grave violation of the Geneva Convention, and a serious war crime. In my view, Prof. Finkelstein far better represents values and ethics of Jewish people.” That view was shared by 30 DePaul students who met with Pres.Holtschneider in his E. Jackson executive office during exam week at the school. They presented a petition of 700 signatures urging both professors be tenured. Finkelstein said he would leave Chicago for New York, where he hopes to continue teaching, though the “blacklist effect” of tenure denial may, in his words, “probably bar me from having a college classroom.”

killing. And yet the West Bank and Gaza are far from their usual turf. Take for example Force 13 of the Israeli navy commandos. This unit is supposed to operate only at sea, but it has participated in dozens of assassinations and abductions in the West Bank and Gaza. One of the best-known operations conducted by Force 13 was the killing of Dr Thabet Thabet, Fatah Tulkarm representative in mid 2002. Force 13 was formed and for a while led by Ami Ayalon, the former navy commander who challenged Barak recently for the leadership of the Labour Party. In his election campaign, Ayhalon boasted of having personally "killed more Arabs" than all the Jews killed by Hamas. Shamuel Romeh, who was one of the leaders of Shabak, said that the elite units specialised in target killings work closely with the Shabak, which collects data about the targets from Palestinian informers. General Gadi Eisencott, commander of the northern zone and former commander of the Israeli army in the West Bank, said that the use of elite units in target killings carries a "deterrence" message to the Palestinian resistance movement, one that is far more effective than shelling by planes. "When a Palestinian terrorist knows that soldiers of the special units can fire at his head point blank while he is standing in the alley outside his home, this is a message to the rest of terrorists that our long army can reach any of them," he told the newspaper Haaretz.

In response to media attention, President Holtschneider said: “Academic freedom is alive and well at DePaul.” It does not sound like it to a preeminent Holocaust historian, Raul Hilberg, who said of Finkelstein: “He has the academic courage to speak the truth when no one else is there to support him. His honored place in the history of writing history is assured.” (The writer, a retired journalist in Eugene, Ore., has been a member of the Oregon Interreligious Council for Peace in the Middle East. He is a graduate of Northwestern University.)

Fury As Israeli School Book Admits Expulsions
BEN LYNFIELD IN JERUSALEM ISRAELI right-wingers are furious at the acknowledgement in a new schoolbook that Palestinians were forcibly expelled when Israel was established in 1948. They claim it undermines Israel's legitimacy as a Jewish nation state. Zevulun Orlev, the leader of the National Religious Party, called on the education minister, Yuli Tamir, to step down after she gave the go-ahead for the new textbook, which is much more honest about the 1948 war than many Israelis are. "Some of the Arab residents were forced to leave their houses and some were expelled and became refugees in the neighbouring Arab countries," the book says. The book says that what for Jews was a fight for Israeli independence was for Arabs "a catastrophe, a war of disaster and loss". The departure from the official Israeli version that all Palestinians ran away during the 1948 fighting rather than being evicted, as many were, comes in a book called Living Together in Israel that is being introduced into schools among Israel's Arab minority this September. Ms Tamir, a founder of the Peace Now allowed a list of 100 Palestinians to return to their homes in Gaza through the Nitzana crossing. Israeli forces control all entry and exit into the Gaza Strip, despite the fact that the Rafah crossing into Egypt is supposed to be under the jurisdiction of international observers. The closure of the entire Gaza Strip has had disastrous humanitarian consequences. According to the United Nations, malnutrition rates among children in Gaza have soared as the internationally-imposed siege has prevented food or supplies from entering the beleagured Gaza Strip. movement and veteran Labour party MP, said the book "gives a balanced picture that enables the Arab pupil to read about his story. One shouldn't expect that the Arab student will connect with a text that says the state of Israel was born and everyone danced in the streets". Taleb al-Sanaa, an Arab MP, termed the new text "a significant step". "In order for there to be historical reconciliation we need an end to the brushing aside and ignoring of what happened during the [1948] catastrophe," he said. Dalia Fenig, an education ministry official, Earlier Sunday, about 1,000 Palestinians gathered in a stadium in the Egyptian town of el-Arish, where authorities read the names of 105 people who they said were approved by Israel to return to Gaza. Most of the 6,000 Palestinians stranded in the desert in Egypt, waiting to cross the Rafah border, had travelled to Egypt for medical treatment. At least ten have died from lack of medical care at the border. Most of those stranded at the border are simply waiting, some for weeks and months, in extreme desert heat with no shade, for the next brief opening of the Rafah border crossing.

said the text was not being introduced into textbooks for Israeli Jewish eight-year-

olds. Right-wing politicians have reacted furiously to the book. "This is an anti-Zionist decision, which erases Jewish history and denies that the state of Israel is a Jewish state," said Mr Orlev. Limor Livnat, a former education minister from the right-wing Likud party, said: "The moment that you teach pupils in the Arab sector that Jews expelled them from their homes and that the establishment of Israel was a catastrophe, they are liable to learn from this that they should undertake armed struggle against the state of Israel. But with Israeli authorities having cut off diplomatic relations with Gaza since Hamas took full control there last month, the chances of having an opening at Rafah have become exceedingly slim. Instead, Israeli authorities have gone through the list of stranded Palestinians, and have handpicked a few that they deem eligible to return home to Gaza. The 100 Palestinians on the list crossed into Israel, then took buses to the Nitzana crossing between Israel and Gaza, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip. Hamas denounced the arrangement, saying it gave Israel a veto on who could en-

against a new "debt of service." Brian Rodriguez is a fighter, an honorably discharged soldier who'd been deployed in Iraq. "I was a combat engineer," Rodriguez said. "We deal with land mines, explosives." He fought for his nation, only to return to his homeland and wage a fresh battle. Former Army Specialist Rodriguez started getting bills for $700 for lost or damaged government property this summer. Although he was discharged some four years ago, bills recently arrived demanding payment, but giving no details on what or why -- nor do they offer a way to dispute the charges. "For doing my job you're going to bill me?" Rodriguez said. And he's not alone. A 2006 government report found more than 1,000 soldiers being billed a total of $1.5 million. And while fighting overseas put their lives on the line, this battle on paper could cost them their future by ruining their credit. Rodriguez will be reported to credit agencies next month. "It makes a terrible point about the nature of military service today," citizen soldier Tod Ensign said. Ensign is a veteran's advocate. He says this is all part of the military’s push to be run more like a business. "They'll just pound him and call him, call his employers, and make his life as miserable as they can until he pays up," Ensign said.

Living Becomes Hard In A Dead City; What Country Is Celebrating?
Inter Press Service By Ahmed Ali* BAQUBA (IPS) - Life in the violenceplagued capital city of Iraq's Diyala province has become a struggle for day-to-day survival. Heavy U.S military operations, sectarian death squads and al-Qaeda militants have combined to make normal life in Baquba, 50 km northeast of Baghdad, all but impossible. Movement from the city to another destination is extremely dangerous. Kidnappings have become rampant in a lawless city where government control is only a mirage. Lack of security and mobility have meant severe shortages of fuel, food, medical supplies and other necessities. The central market in the city of about 325,000 has vanished. It is not just the shopping that is gone. People used to meet acquaintances in the market to socialise and sometimes do business. The ongoing violence has ended all that. The market has become scattered around city districts. Many shop owners have reopened smaller shops within their houses, and abandoned their business locations. About two or three persons have been killed or abducted in the market daily on average in recent weeks. This had started to happen even before the U.S. military operation Arrowhead Ripper was launched last month with the intention of targeting al-Qaeda forces. Now residents say it is much worse. "The troops have closed all the outlets from the city, and never allow cars to move," Amir Ayad, a 51-year-old assistant professor in the sciences college at Diyala University told IPS. "To get my college, I have to get a cart as other people do. It is five kilometres, and it is better than walking." "For the final examinations which were held unfortunately during this period of military operations, students had to walk hours to get to the exam centre," Prof. Majeed Abid told IPS. "They were exhausted and sweating." Animal-drawn carts have now become a new business in Baquba. Most of these are drawn by donkeys, and each cart carries 1015 passengers who pay two to three dollars a journey. "Every day I bring vegetables four kilometres by cart and pay 25-35 dollars for this," 29-year-old Adil Omran told IPS. "For this reason, the prices have increased tremendously." "A tomato, which is grown commonly in Iraq, is usually around six cents," said Mahmood Ali, a retired teacher. "Nowadays, we buy it for 1.25 dollar. Families now tend to buy one or two bags of potatoes (30 kilos each) because they cannot afford the increasing prices of other vegetables." Complicating matters is the already unsteady disbursement of salaries due to the volatile security situation. "Officials used to receive their salaries every month, but for a year and a half now we receive our salaries only every 50-70 days," Kadhim Raad, a 44-year-old official in the municipality of Baquba told IPS. "The staff at the Ministry of Education have not received their salaries for three months because no money is available in the banks," Sara Latif, an official in the finance department of the Directorate General of Education told IPS. People are now looking for ways to leave this city of continuing violence, delayed salaries, lack of jobs, lack of open markets, closed factories, no functioning municipal work, and very little farming due to lack of water and electricity. The average house in Baquba gets one or two hours of electricity a day. It is not uncommon for three or four days to pass without a minute of electricity. Most people have bought small generators, but lack of fuel often makes it impossible to run these. Before the U.S.-led invasion, a litre of petrol in Iraq cost five cents; today in Baquba it is nearly two dollars. There are no functioning fuel stations. Instead, people buy 20-litre jugs. "People have forgotten there is something called a petrol station," Hamid Alwan, a 46year-old taxi driver told IPS. "The owners of petrol stations sell the tankers of petrol before they are brought to Baquba to make more money." And all this is less than the biggest concern – to find a way just to stay safe.

Bush Using Hitler Blueprint For Removing Dissidents & Rivals
Operation Falcon: The Bush administration has carried out three massive sweeps in the last two years, rolling up more than 30,000 minor crooks and criminals, without as much as a whimper of protest from the public. So far, not one of the more than 30,000 victims has been charged with a terror-related crime. So far, not one of the more than 30,000 victims has been charged with a terror-related crime.Operation Falcon is the clearest indication yet that the Bush administration is finetuning its shock-troops so it can roll up tens of thousands of people at a moment's notice and toss them into the newly-built Halliburton detention centers. This should be a red flag for anyone who cares at all about human rights, civil liberties, or simply saving his own skin. Falcon; new drills for a new world order The Falcon operations can only be understood in the broader context of the ongoing assault on the constitutional system of checks and balances; including the repeal of habeas corpus, warrantless wiretaps and searches, and the use of torture. For the last 6 years, the Bush administration has been busy dismantling the legal safeguards which protect the citizen from the arbitrary and, oftentimes, ruthless actions of the state.

Without fanfare, Bush has taken control of all armed forces and militias inside and outside of the country and now has a monopoly on all the state-sanctioned tools of organized violence. It's a coup that could never have succeeded without the tacit cooperation of the media. Bush is now free to declare martial law in response to a natural disaster, a pandemic or a terrorist attack. The congress is powerless to stop him. Also, Bush recently signed the Military Commissions Act of 2006, which allows the president to arbitrarily declare citizens and non citizens “enemy combatants” and imprison them indefinitely without charge. The new law gives Bush the authority to disregard the Geneva Conventions and the 8th amendment's ban on “cruel and unusual” punishment and apply “harsh interrogation” which may include torture. The act effectively repeals habeas corpus, the cornerstone of American jurisprudence and the Bill of Rights. The Military Commissions Act cannot coexist with the US Constitution; the two are mutually exclusive http://www.legitgov.org/

White House Seeks Warrantless Authority From Congress
The Bush regime is pressing Congress this week for the authority to intercept, without a court order, any international phone call or e-mail between a surveillance target outside the United States and any person in the United States. The proposal, submitted by Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell to congressional leaders on Friday, would amend [void] the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) for the first time since 2006 so that a court order would no longer be needed before wiretapping anyone.

When Bankers Are The Robbers?
A Bank of Canada Tutorial For Those Who Have Been Indoctrinated Into The Financier-Driven Economy, and believe what their accountants and bookkeepers tell them.
By Sydney White / Studies In Propaganda Until the Bank of Canada opened in 1935, the Treasury Board, which administered the Finance Act of 1923, had no responsibility to see that advances made to the banks answered the needs of the economy. The unsatisfactory nature of that arrangement was revealed during the Great Depression. In 1934 Parliament passed the Bank of Canadsa Act and the bank itself was founded a year later. In 1938 the King Government bought out the Bank’s 12,000 shareholders thereby transforming the private bank into a public institution. The federal government thus became the Bank’s only shareholder and the interest on the debt, which was previously a burden to tax payers, became dividends for the federal government and Canadians. Canada’s national monetary policy was not unique, however. Germany, France, Russia, Japan, and Italy had all been is- vate banks then used the hammer of high interest, the only tool in their repertoire, to “bring down inflation” suing national credit before Canada had. which is CAUSED by interest!

Dear Springeagle: After speaking with you last month I have recently read both books you gave me: Talks With Christ and Celestine Prophecies. I have also seen the movies you mentioned: The Secret and The Celestine Prophecy, (the Celestine movie is very different than the book). I kept in mind what you said about no book or any form of media is “all truth or fact, but to gain some incite into the subject. If books or material is taken as truth all books would be bibles. Man writes the books and man is imperfect therefore we need to use our minds and souls to get what we need or want out of what we read.” All are great but only one, (The Secret), actually says anything about changing the negative thought patterns before trying to do any of these things to attain higher ground in life or with Spirituality. The changes needed are lightly touched in The Secret but not in any of the other sources of information I was using. We have been witnessing and living the hells of realization that we need to clear out our minds of negativity and unresolved issues. Even the best forms of positive thinking will not stop us from sabotage ourselves once we have acquired what we want. We know we can get all we desire but if we don't appreciate it we will loose it. Many of us have already lived that one through so why do these great writers and producers not mentioning this in a more serious light and why are some of them just leaving this important section out of the entire scenario? In my eyes it does more damage to gin what one wants and desires just to loose it again because we fear what we love the most so we sabotage ourselves. I would like to apply these things to my life but need to understand so that I do it right. Please guide me Caroline Hi Caroline: I have also noticed that in these works and felt a great gap in what they are trying to say. What they are saying about attraction is very true but if your mind is not well due to unresolved issues and negative thinking issues the joy will be short lived with the dreams. Much pain and destruction will replace any happiness gained very early into the dream. For example a couple dreamed their way into each others lives, gets together and is in total bliss.

told me that whatever I thought I felt from him was how he is with all women and his wife is open to it--what has been driving me crazy, is how could I have been so wrong--I know he is angry/doesn't care for me now-and believe me I do feel like a fool--and I am aware that I caused it--what do you think? Jan Look a little deeper: They dreamed each other into each other's lives so do each truly know who the other really is or is the personality of each part of the dream and quite different? I find that realization of these differences is what bust the bubble and all hell begins. Suddenly the bliss turns into the occasional argument, then arguing then fighting then hell. This couple got what they wanted but the outcome shows that they were not ready for this bliss emotionally thus they destroyed it.. I have also gone through the workings without dealing with my issues. It was pure hell being able to get what I wanted but not being able emotionally to handle it and destroying all I had gained and then some. So you see you are right to questioning. Know that to heal properly you will need to deal with your issues, as they come up, reach out for what you can handle emotionally and let it grow into what you will be able to handle tomorrow.

Blessings Springeagle God is the main energy source and we are fragments he has sent out into the universe to represent whatever job or life we have come to represent. Each lifetime is different but connected Karmic ally. The fragment of light energy that is our selves is our spirit and this is the part of each of us that is God. Therefore I believe the spirit is our God self-striving to work the body or form we were borne to be. Our Spirit maintains all the personalities of the entities we have ever lived within.

Hi Jan: What I thinks is happening is that when you get near something you like you begin to get despite, over react and dramatize things out of fear. I used to do these things and destroyed many relationships in doing so. You need to deal with your deep fear of rejection and learn to accept love first from yourself and then from others without the fear of loosing. We truly never lose love, only the source in the physical. Love is eternal and when I accepted this and law healed many old wounds I was able to stop pushing everyone I loved away from me. Blessings Springeagle Dear Springeagle: does an acquaintance I know have any feelings for me now or does he think I'm a loser? did he ever feel anything for me or was it all in my head? Thank You Becca Hi Becca: Yes he has feelings but feelings are fleeting and they change depending what the input is. If you feel he feels negatively about you are right and if you wish it to be positive then you must change your thoughts regarding yourself. Blessings Springeagle Dear Springeagle: I have feelings for a person and wonder if this person feels anything for me. Sometimes it seems like he does and then I begin to doubt myself. Dianne Hi Dianne: I have found that everyone has feelings for all it come into contact with in life. Yes this person feels most likely feel what you feel but for many reasons may be in a very different space and they may or may not mean anything at all to him. what you feel. The question is will he in space to admit it, do they realize it and what they wish to do with it. Many times in life people do not realize what they truly feel for another and deny any feelings at all for whatever reason they may have. Blessings, Angel

Dear Springeagle: It has been a while I have posted. So in I was ponder this question and thought I put it out for your consideration. My opinion: We are all energy of course. But have been calling our self-spirits in the physical. I though about energy and how it was present before we where. The EARTH IS MASS OF ENERGY. We have heard of many ways we began this activity we call life. It is not the answer I seek. I want to know what is your perception of what is God? Thanks BRENDA Hi Brenda: In my mind

Dear Springeagle: I have a question in reference to my families’ problem. Whenever someone states a problem with someone else, the problem is ignored and it seems to escalate not just tension, but new problematic scenarios. Is there any remedy? With love Roda Dear Roda: Many families have this problem. When I was a kid, my family just kept yelling louder and louder. Nothing ever got solved. You all have to learn to take one problem, deal with it to the end then work on the next one. Learn how to be more objective and use less emotion when doing this. Proper communication skills, patients, tolerance and understanding is the best way to work out problems. Blessings Springeagle Dear Springeagle: hello angel love and thank you so much for responding to my question--this is really something I should have let go of a long time ago, normal people don't dwell on things long periods of time, but I have this infamous knack for doing so--and in the process, can alienate anyone who is close to me--I really at times have thought I was crazy for feeling the way I do, because for all intents and purposes he has blown me off, or my dramatics, as I've been told, were too old--I am married and so is he but I always knew I liked him--meaning his opinion of me mattered and he had qualities that drew me to him--I messed things up in a big way by running my mouth about him constantly and thinking that he h ad s i mi l ar in t eres t / attraction/like for me--and I based this on the fact that he did at times seem uncomfortable around me--but I'm not from this area, don't really know too many people and supposedly, it's different-whatever that means--people

"Who Is Real and Who

The Imposter?"
As I reach out to people I am constantly being asked how one sees the difference between a true Spiritual Healer or Leader and an imitation one. Many people have been taken in by imposters and are now frightened to reach out again. I have herd horror stories around spiritual and religious leaders taking advantage of the trust given to them by everyday people. These situations are happening in all forms of religion. Below are some warnings sings and things to look out for as well as do when talking to anyone especially one whom you may or may not give your trust to. This will help you see the difference, help you to avoid imposters , also hopefully restore your belief in an imperfect world in some way , to a point where you may someday realize there is good among the bad. 1.

I awoke with different eyes The sadness takes over the love And fear fills my mind I know in my soul that this is not right This love was to fast and too fierce My desires blinded my truth Now as I see a little clearer In the dawn of a new day All those feelings are gone What we thought was love was just a game Take from each other and keep a hard grip Together in a bind of repenting emotions But then these emotions fade Into a deep dark hole If we remained within this deceit We would be just hurt I have been hurt like this in my time I have fallen for the games we all play But I will not fall any further into ours Time to just say no Because the sadness is a warning Telling us that it's not real Telling us that it's all wrong Even though it did feel so right I ignored it before and paid With my soul, screaming in the night My heart wants to release the sadness And this will release you too Why cause I know you don't really love As much as I may want you to In the way it should be Even though you believe you do My love will never reach you It falls to the ground around you That is the sadness My logic replaces ignorance Because it's so clear to see No feelings come towards me now As it did at the start Your heart is not free to love

A Housing Strategy
Toronto is full of 'housing advocates' who want government to start 'building housing' again. But we do not need more of what we have had. We need better ideas.
In previous articles, it was explained how squats and shanty towns are not going to solve the housing problem in Toronto. And, how an assisted ownership self-housing society might work. Self appointed 'housing advocates' with connections to the city housing bureaucracy have been calling for more 'housing' for years. This means, more of the kind of social housing that has been such wonderful places in which to live and raise families. Alternatively, they call for 'rent subsidies', meaning subsidies to low end landlords. We will take a quick and fresh look at the history of housing in Canada, what the real needs are, a little of what other countries are doing, and then draw some conclusions about what a useful housing strategy might be. During the suburban boom, many people created co-housing associations and bypassed the developers. That is less feasible as large developers now control most open land in metropolitan areas not owned by government. Condominiums are the new thing for developers to capture the people with some money but not enough to buy a free standing house. Developers are not going to build new rental apartments when they can get tenants who are responsible for their own mortgages and who pay their own maintenance costs. The lowest level of 'owning' is trailer parks. The residents, like condominium dwellers, are a subset of tenants who buy their units but cannot own the land under it. Ask most residents of social housing what kind of housing they really want, and they will tell you they want some way to own their own homes.

The ideal would be for everyone who wants to, to be able to own their homes. The obvious problem with this is in the ownership of tar@qaz.ca the land. The biggest single cost of housing is the land to build it on. the bottom half Housing is unaffordable for most people because the land is unaffordable.

speculative inflation

co-operating

When the drawbacks of badly thought out social housing and social programs became clear, the next thing government tried was to encourage co-operatives. The advantages are that there was usually a mix of middle and low income/subsidised units, so 'ghettoisation' did not occur. They were run by the people who lived in them, rather than by bureaucrats. Co-operative housing originated with idealists with some money with which to pool and build 'equity' coops with minimal government help. As they proved to be an effective way of providing low income housing, coops gradually came to be controlled by governmental housing bureaucracies. The co-op federations grew some unpleasant bureaucracies of their own. There has been nasty infighting within members of co-ops. Sometimes co-operatives have acted as badly as the nastiest slumlords toward their rent-subsidized members. But coops were better than anything else in Toronto until the fiasco of the Harris/ Lastman era. The non equity coops have now been rolled into the city social housing empire. No new coops have been built in Toronto for ten years.

the need

A sensible national housing policy would be a combination of assisted ownership of buildings on leased public land, private rent subsidies, and special needs. Most present social housing should become true co- operatives, assisted ownership, true special needs with the funds to run it right, or it should be torn down and rebuilt. But it takes money to build housing and the money can only come from the federal government. The only way to keep the provincial government from grabbing it, and insure it is directed to where the need is, it is to attach it to individuals as a housing allowance. The province has no real interests in housing. We need some legislation from the province, and otherwise it should get out of the way. From the city we need land, and a sensible property and other tax systems geared to ability to pay. We need the city to provide the support needed by low income people to be able to set up and run their own housing systems. The city is the only level of government with the potential to run social and needs housing, and assisted ownership, properly. Owning None of this is novel. In some developed countries the people pay, on average, 15% Also in the 'post war' era, home ownership was encouraged. Initially, most 'working of their income on housing.

But as developers ran amok, the cost of suitable they apply the kind of ideas given above. land for building soared.

Notes On The Passing Scene
A Letter To The Editor
By Gary Jacobucci Wells, Nevada Editor, Canadian journalist Alan Watt made a very revealing statement recently regarding the nature of global governance. He has asked insiders over the last several years, off the record, why they would be in support of the destruction of the American Republic and a global war on terrorism that was so obviously planned and engineered years in advance of it's inception. The answer most often given was that they "wanted to be on the winning side." Genuine history shows that America was formally sold out a hundred years ago when the robber barons of the 18th century sided with the enormous power and wealth presented by the aristocracy and central banking powers of Europe. It was at this time that John D. Rockefeller, J.P Morgan, Andrew Carnegie, and others colluded to form the American aristocracy and created foundations to hide their vast fortunes and influence from taxation and oversight. Theodore Roosevelt, a president that liked to get right to the heart of the matter, said around this time: "Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government,

to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day." When Napoleon Bonaparte saw that the House of Rothschild and their minions were financing both sides of the war between England and France, he made another revealing statement that is important for America to grasp; "When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes. Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain." In a speech at the 1991 Bilderberg gathering of the global elite, David Rockefeller made this statement... "It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto determination practiced in past centuries." Nor was Rockefeller showing his allegiance to this country when he wrote in his 2002 autobiography "Memoirs": "For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents to

attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it." Zbigniew Brzezinski, Carter's National Security Advisor 1977-81, Rockefeller protégé and author participated in the select group that drew up the plans for the engineered war of global terrorism that was published in 1998 under the names of 'Project for a New American Century' and 'Rebuilding America's Defenses'. One of the many revealing statements in the documents states that the global war they had in mind would be a tough sell to the America public "without a catastrophic and catalyzing event, like a new Pearl Harbor." This particular think tank also included Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and Jeb Bush, the governor of Florida who so obviously manipulated the elections to place another puppet president into the White House - in this case, his brother. Dr. Johannes Koeppl traveled briefly in the inner circles of power, but rapidly fell from grace fall after realizing that Brzezinski was part of a group intending to impose a world dictatorship. He says, "In 1983/4 I warned of a takeover of world governments

being orchestrated by these people. There was an obvious plan to subvert true democracies and selected leaders were not being chosen based upon character but upon their loyalty to an economic system run by the elites and dedicated to preserving their power." The treasonous NAFTA legislation enacted under Clinton that pulled the rug out from under Mexico's small family farms by flooding Mexico with cheap corn exports that we now subsidize to the tune of some $25 billion dollars a year, the tens of millions of dollars channeled through the Ford Foundation to fund La Raza and the illegal immigration movement in America, the Security and Prosperity Agreement of North America signed in secret by the presidents of Mexico, America and the Prime Minister of Canada that seeks to dissolve the sovereignty of these countries into the NAU (North American Union), the flooding of this country with fiat credit and currency until such time as the international money cartel decides to pull the plug, are all part of an unrelenting agenda to weaken this country to a point of abdicating our sovereignty in favor of a global governance. This might have been the 'mischief' Jefferson was referring to when he wrote; "Speak to me no more of confidence in man, but bind him from mischief with the chains of the Constitution." It's time to wake up and smell the global fascism engulfing this country and the world.

‘Security & Prosperity Treason Background ‘ e u r Tre s n c ro d
By Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D. NewsWithViews.com Dr. Jerome Corsi recently has been warning people about the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), which President Bush signed with the head of both the Canadian and Mexican governments on March 23, 2005, in Waco, Texas. At the same time this agreement was signed supposedly to improve the security and economic prosperity of each of the 3 nations, a Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) report, "Building a North American Community," not coincidentally was being prepared by Robert Pastor (U.S.), Wendy Dobson (Canada) and Luis Rubio (Mexico). And in this 100-page report released May 2005, one finds plans for a North American Union by 2010, with its own court, legislative body, executive commission, Customs officials and currency called the Amero. In case you think this idea came from nowhere, the following background or timeline should prove instructive: 1) July 1792---AMERICAN MUSEUM publishes Philip Freneau's warning to Americans about how their Republic could be undermined by the power elite. For the first half of the 1800s, the power elite will devise ways to break up the U.S. 2) 1863---The historian Motley writes a letter to THE LONDON TIMES describing "the ultimate object of the conspirators...to establish a Gulf Empire" including the southern U.S. and Mexico. 3) November 21, 1864---President Lincoln writes to William Elkin of his great fear that the power elite is working "until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed." Lincoln is assassinated within a few months. 4) 1891---Cecil Rhodes forms his secret Society of the Elect "to take the government of the whole world." His Association of Helpers (AH) forms Round Table Groups from which comes the CFR. 5) October 27, 1908---Alfred Lord Milner, who implements Rhodes' plan, writes to Canadian AH member Arthur Glazebrook : "I think every member of your body should feel it's his principal business to influence as many people as possible who are not of it and who do not know they are being influenced." A half century later, Rhodes scholars will surround Canadian Prime Minister Lester Pearson who, according to William Frye in A UNITED NATIONS PEACE FORCE, will be "the author of the U.N. Emergency Force," which would grow to have a collective security function. 6) 1942---P.E. Corbett, Canadian AH member, authors POST-WAR WORLDS calling for "a world association binding together and coordinating regional groupings of states (that) may evolve toward one universal federal government.... World government is the ultimate aim...(with) common economic agencies for advice and control...an Economic and Financial Organization, embracing Trade, Development, and Migration Commissions, and a Central Bank. The functions of these institutions...would be to regulate the production and distribution of raw materials and food, control the flow of inter-regional investment and migration, etc." ---World government map prepared by World Association of Parliamentarians for World Government shows Chinese (Mongolian) forces will be policing in Mexico. Under the SPP, there will be a TransAmerica highway running from Mexico to Canada, splitting the U.S. Chinese containers from ships will be offloaded in Mexican ports (avoiding American Longshoremen) and trucked by Mexicans (avoiding American Teamsters) through Kansas City where the only inspection will be performed by Mexican Customs officials in Kansas City. 8) 1953---Ford Foundation president H. Rowan Gaither will reveal they are under White House directives to have a "comfortable merger" between the U.S. and USSR. 9) 1953---John J. McCloy, agent of the power elite, becomes chairman of the CFR until 1970. From 1958 to 1965, he also will be chairman of the Ford Foundation. 10) 1968---The Hispanic organization, the Southwest Council of LaRaza Unida, is created with a $630,000 grant from the Ford Foundation, which supports the movement to bring massive numbers of Mexicans into the U. S. From 1968 to 1992, Ford Foundation grants to radical Hispanics totaled over $31 million. And according to Henry Santiestevan (former head of the Southwest Council of LaRaza), "It would hardly be an exaggeration to say that the Ford Foundation is the Chicano movement." 11) 1972---CFR member Lester R. Brown (1991 Humanist of the Year) authors WORLD WITHOUT BORDERS and writes in the LOS ANGELES TIMES (Nov. 19, 1972) about the need for countries to "sacrifice a measure of sovereignty." 12) April 1974---The CFR's FOREIGN AFFAIRS publishes Trilateralist and Rhodes scholar Richard Gardner's "The Hard Road to World Order" claiming that "an end run around national sover-

18) 2002---David Rockefeller, "Some even believe we (Rockefeller family) are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure---one world, if you will.

screw up the planet, he says with a straight face, we can always "think about other planets and dome cities." By the way, did you catch any of the Live Earth concert, broadcast around the world on July 7 to raise awareness about climate change? Sadly, we missed it. But from what we hear, we understand that Madonna brought down the house. That'd be the same Madonna who flew as many as 100 technicians, dancers, background singers, managers and family members on a 56-date world tour in private jets and commercial airliners, leading last year's tour to produce 440 tonnes of CO2 in four months. Would that this kind of nonsense were confined to musicians and actors, but of course it isn't. Al Gore can rightfully lay claim to the top spot among the various GW Chicken Littles. The man has been tirelessly crisscrossing the country (by horse cart, no doubt) in order to call attention to the crisis. He even has an Academy Award. But what's happening back on the home front? Well, the Tennessee Center for Policy Research says that utility bills obtained from public records indicate that Mr Gore's 20room house and swimming pool in Nashville used nearly 221,000 kWh in 2006, compared with an average home's yearly consumption of 10,656. A Gore spokeswoman responded by pointing out that Al and his wife Tipper work from home (at least, when they're there), and are therefore likely to use more energy. The former Second Couple is in the process of installing solar panels and low-energy light bulbs to reduce consumption from the grid, she added, and besides, the Gores "also do the carbon emissions offset." Say what? In case you're unfamiliar with this particular dance, here's how it works (you can do it, too, if you want): you're concerned about your carbon footprint, so you simply go to a carbon- credits firm and pay some money, they get somebody far away to reduce his emissions, and presto, you're "carbon neutral." Better still, Al buys his carbon offsets from himself. No kidding. He gets them from Generation Investment Management LLP, an outfit designed to "deliver superior long-term investment returns," and of which he is chairman and a founding partner. Neat. Hopefully, the day will come when these would-be Cassandras will shut up, or at least direct their efforts toward real environmental problems, such as deforestation, overfishing, toxic waste dumping, and the like. But don't count on it. http://www.caseyresearch.com/ Friday fits quite easily with these conclusions. It does seem to have a certain resonance with what they're finding in this research." The Hadley Centre lead scientist involved with the study was Dr Peter Stott, who specialises in finding "human fingerprints" sometimes referred to as anthropogenic signals - on the changing climate. Dr Stott, published research showing that the climate of central England had warmed by a full degree Celsius in the past 40 years, and that this could be directly linked to human causes - the first time that man-made climate change had been identified at such a local level. The human fingerprint is detected by making computer simulations of the recent past climate, with and without emissions of greenhouse gases - and then comparing the results with what has actually been observed in the real world. In Dr Stott's research, the observed rises in temperature and rainfall could be clearly accounted for by the scenario in which emissions were prominent. The conclusions of the new rainfall study are regarded as all the more robust as they are the joint work of several major national climate research bodies, led by Environment Canada, with each using its own supercomputer climate model. Global warming is likely to lead to higher rainfall because a warming atmosphere contains more water vapour and more energy. Since climate prediction began 20 years ago, heavier rainfall over Britain has been a consistent theme.

Celebrity Carbon
By Doug Hornig CaseyResearch.com On a recent episode of the Daily Show, comedian Lewis Black took some well-deserved potshots at a number of our favorite celebrities, beginning with Matt Damon. Black ran a clip of Damon, looking earnestly into the camera, about to let us know what we can do to help save the earth. "Now," Matt begins, "if your house is like my house-" That was as far as he got, because Black pushed the Pause button and said simply, "It isn't." Point taken. It's bad enough that the media have to keep us abreast of every boring detail of these people's lives. It's bad enough that we're barraged with tons of misinformation about global climate change. But do we really need to be lectured by celebrity ninnies about how we have to become better stewards of the planet? The hypocrisy is mind-boggling. Take rock stars, for instance U2. Now, don't get us wrong. We like U2. U2 is one of the greatest bands of all time. Problem is, they don't always stick to what they do best. Bono in particular feels compelled to use his celebrity platform to push his own agenda, and that includes global warming which, he states, is inescapably linked with global hunger. Perhaps, when he vents in public, he ought to be a bit more aware of where foot is in relation to mouth. Now, it's nice to be against hunger. Nobody's for hunger. But let's assume for the sake of argument that global warming (GW) is real, and that it's caused by humans' carbon emissions. It then follows that those who are doing the most to reduce global hunger are those who create a very small "carbon footprint," the current buzz phrase for estimating one's personal contribution to increasing carbon dioxide levels. Thus, if one truly believes in the warming/hunger connection, as Bono claims to, then it's logical to assume that he must be terribly concerned about his carbon footprint. Uh-huh. Check out these excerpts from a press release celebrating one of U2's tours, and remember, they're boasting about it: "The stage featured vidi walls, 36 video monitors, numerous television cameras, two separate mix positions, 26 on-stage microphones, 176 speakers, and 11 elaborately painted Trabants, several of which were suspended over the stage with spotlights inserted into headlights, which all required 1 million By Michael McCarthy It's official: the heavier rainfall in Britain is being caused by climate change, a major new scientific study will revealed this week, as the country reels from summer downpours of unprecedented ferocity. More intense rainstorms across parts of the northern hemisphere are being generated by man-made global warming, the study has established for the first time - an effect which has long been predicted but never before proved. The study's findings will be all the more dramatic for being disclosed as Britain struggles to recover from the phenomenal drenching of the past few days, during which more than a month's worth of rain fell in a few hours in some places, and floods forced thousands from their homes. The "major rainfall event" of last Friday fully predicted as such by the Met Office has given the country a quite exceptional battering, with the Thames still rising. In Gloucester water levels had reached 34 feet, just 12 inches below flood defences - the same level as during the flood of 1947 - although a police spokesman said last night that the River Severn had stopped rising. Last night vast areas of the country around Gloucestershire and Worcestershire were still inundated, large numbers of people in temporary accommodation, transport links were widely disrupted, and yet more householders were standing by to be flooded in their turn, in one of the biggest civil emergencies Britain has seen. About 150,000 residents in Gloucestershire were left without drinking water when the Mythe Water Treatment Works in Tewkesbury became inoperable after flooding. An-

Maybe the reason her added.] dressing room requirements include Bombay gin and Schweppes tonic is that her lifestyle might otherwise be a little tough to face. John Travolta is another GW fan fave. At the premiere of his most recent film, he was heard to say that everyone must "do their bit" to fight global warming, and opined that "We have to think about alternative methods of fuel." This after driving down the red carpet on a Harley Davidson. You couldn't make this stuff up.

other 200,000 people are at risk of losing their supplies. The water shortages may last until Wednesday and 600 water tanks were being drafted to the area. Panic buying of bottled water was reported, with supermarkets selling out of stocks, and there were contamination problems in south London, where 80,000 households and businesses in the Sutton area were advised to boil their water after rain got into a tank. Yet another potential danger was from car thieves; West Mercia police warned drivers who had abandoned their cars in the floodwater to collect them quickly to prevent theft. The Great Flood of July is all the more remarkable for following right on from the Great Flood of June, which caused similar havoc in northern towns such as Doncaster and Hull, after a similar series of astonishingly torrential downpours on 24 June. Meteorologists agree that the miserably wet British summer of 2007 has generally been caused by a southward shift towards Britain of the jetstream, the high-level airflow that brings depressions eastwards across the Atlantic. This is fairly normal. But debate is going on about whether climate change may be responsible for the intensity of the two freak rainfall episodes, which have caused flooding the like of which has never been seen in many places. This is because the computer models used to predict the future course of global warming all show heavier rainfall, and indeed, "extreme rainfall events", as one of its principal consequences. The new study, carried out jointly by sev-

eral national climate research institutes using their supercomputer climate models, including the Hadley Centre of the UK Met Office, does not prove that any one event, including the rain of the past few days in Britain, is climate-change related. But it certainly supports the idea, by showing that in recent decades rainfall has increased over several areas of the world, including the mid-latitudes of the northern hemisphere, and linking this directly, for the first time, to global warming caused by human emissions of greenhouse gases. The study is being published in the journal Nature, and its main findings have caused a stir, and are being freely discussed by climate scientists in the Met Office, the Hadley Centre and the Department for Environment For Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. One familiar with the study's conclusions said: "What this does is establish for the first time that there is a distinct 'human fingerprint' in the changes in precipitation patterns - the increases in rainfall - observed in the northern hemisphere mid-latitudes, which includes Britain. "That means, it is not just the climate's natural variability which has caused the increases, but there is a detectable human cause: climate change, caused by our greenhouse gas emissions. The 'human fingerprint' has been detected before in temperature rises, but never before in rainfall. So this is very significant. "Some people would argue that you can't take a single event and pin that on climate change, but what happened in Britain last

“dignitaries will discuss a plethora of issues, including the situation in Lebanon and the threat of Hizbullah overthrowing the sitting government, Hamas’ control of the Palestinian Authority and the continued Qassam attacks on Israel despite the ceasefire, the rising challenge of the Iranian-Syrian-Hizballah alliance, options for dealing with the threat from Iran, energy independence, democracies and the media in wartime and how Israel should deal with its neighbors,” reports Yedioth Internet. In short, “dignitaries,” mostly war criminals, will discuss war and how to wage it. Of course, such topics are of particular importance, as Democrats will soon assume control of Congress. Strategy must be worked out in advance. It is a sure bet this strategy will not differ significantly from the strategy of the neocons. In fact, with Avigdor Lieberman in attendance, throwing his weight around as the Minister of Strategic Affairs and as a Deputy Prime Minister of Israel, we may even expect things to get worse, possibly far worse. In order to understand how Lieberman’s mind works, consider that his “personal lovability [in German, Lieberman translates as “lovable man”] can be judged by the fact that he was once arrested for beating up a boy who had quarreled with his son,” according to Uri Avnery. “When there is a terrorist attack, I am Lieberman. Sometimes to the right of Lieberman,” Saban told Haaretz. No word if Mr. Saban will consent to beat up kids. On the other hand, he apparently sleeps well at night, knowing Palestinian school children are shot at pointblank range. “Look, I don’t see a solution today. People are saying hudna [truce].

Lib Leader Dion Indoctrinated At Brookings
Conspiracies Behind Haim Saban’s Closed Doors As if to finally dispel the myth there is a difference between Israel First neocons and Democrats, consider the upcoming “closed session” at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution, a “think tank” bankrolled by Israeli-American millionaire Haim Saban. “Among the many officials attending are Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni; David Welch, the current top U.S. envoy to the region; Shimon Peres, Israel’s deputy prime minister; Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N. Y.) and her husband, former President Bill Clinton; Amos Yadlin, director of Israel’s military intelligence; Avigdor Lieberman, Israel’s minister of strategic planning; and many other Bush administration officials and U.S. and Israeli lawmakers,” reports the Jewish Telegraph Agency. Interesting a hopeful presidential candidate, and her former president husband, will be rubbing elbows with the likes of Avigdor Lieberman, who “advocates Transfer, the expulsion of the Arab citizens from Israel,” according Uri Avnery, Israeli journalist, peace activist, and Knesset member. “He threatened to destroy Egypt by blowing up the Aswan Dam. He demanded the execution of the Israeli Arab Knesset members for meeting with Syrian and Hamas leaders.” But this is nothing new, Avnery shrugs, because “Rehavam Ze’evi, whose memory was honored … by a special commemoration session of the Knesset, proposed ethnic cleansing, and General Effi Eytam, the chief of the National Union party, uses similar language.” In other words, ethnic cleansing is business as normal in Israel. Imagine Bill and Hill embracing a Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and attending a “Klonvocation,” a gathering of racists. In essence, this is what they will be doing when they go behind Saban’s closed doors with Lieberman and crew. “Haim Saban has been a very good friend, supporter and adviser to me,” effused Bill Clinton in 2004. “I am grateful for his commitment to Israel, to a just and lasting peace in the Middle East and to my foundation’s work, particularly on reconciliation issues.” Lasting peace, naturally, translates into more dead Palestinians, more Palestinian refugees, more malnourished Palestinians, more targeted assassinations, more demolished homes and flattened olive groves. As for Saban and his Brookings center, the roundly excoriated John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt write: “For many years, [the Brookings Institution] senior expert on the Middle East was William Quandt, a former NSC official with a well-deserved reputation for even-handedness. Today, Brookings’ coverage is conducted through the Saban Center for Middle East Studies, which is financed by Haim Saban, an IsraeliAmerican businessman and ardent Zionist. The center’s director is the ubiquitous Martin Indyk. What was once a nonpartisan policy institute is now part of the pro-Israel chorus,” a glee club that includes no shortage of Democrats, even though the more reactionary among the Jabotinskyites are suspicious of Democrats, prompting Democrats to bend over backwards, flip somersaults, and engage in all manner of political tumbling routines in order to please the ethnic cleansers. It does not take a lot of imagination to envision what will be talked about behind Saban’s closed doors. “To me he will always be a dear personal friend,” waxed Ariel Sharon before he slipped into a coma. “Haim Saban is a great American citizen and a man who always stood by Israel and the Jewish people in times of need. His contribution to strengthening ties between Israel and American political leaders from all parties has been quite remarkable and outstanding.'’ At the Saban Center tomorrow,
