China Needs U.S. Guarantees for Treasuries, Yu Says (Update2)
Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Beijing, China -- Sources at the United States Embassy in Beijing China have just CONFIRMED to me that the United States of America has tendered to China a written agreement which grants to the People's Republic of China, an option to exercise Eminent Domain within the USA, as collateral for China's continued purchase of US Treasury Notes and existing US Currency reserves!

The written agreement was brought to Beijing by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and was formalized and agreed-to during her recent trip to China.
Feb. 11 (Bloomberg) -- China should seek guarantees that its $682 billion holdings of U.S. government debt wont be eroded by reckless policies, said Yu Yongding, a former adviser to the central bank.

The U.S. should make the Chinese feel confident that the value of the assets at least will not be eroded in a significant way, Yu, who now heads the World Economics and Politics Institute at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said in response to e-mailed questions yesterday from Beijing. He declined to elaborate on the assurances needed by China, the biggest foreign holder of U.S. government debt.

Benchmark 10-year Treasury yields climbed above 3 percent this week on speculation the government will increase borrowing as President Barack Obama pushes his $838 billion stimulus package through Congress. Premier Wen Jiabao said last month his governments strategy for investing would focus on safeguarding the value of Chinas $1.95 trillion foreign reserves.

China may voice its concerns over U.S. government finances and the potential for a weaker dollar when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visits China on Feb. 20, according to He Zhicheng, an economist at Agricultural Bank of China, the nations third-largest lender by assets. A Peoples Bank of China official, who didnt wish to be identified, declined to comment on the telephone.

Clinton Talks

In talks with Clinton, China will ask for a guarantee that the U.S. will support the dollars exchange rate and make sure Chinas dollar-denominated assets are safe, said He in Beijing. That would be one of the prerequisites for more purchases.

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Jiang Yu said yesterday that talks with Clinton would cover bilateral relations, the financial crisis and international affairs, according to the Xinhua news agency.

The dollar fell 0.6 percent to 89.96 yen today on concern that the U.S. governments bank-rescue plan will fail to revive lending. Treasuries declined as investors prepared to bid for a record $21 billion sale of 10-year notes today. The yield on the benchmark 10-year note rose three basis points to 2.83 percent.

Currency Reserves

These comments are some sort of a threat but of course China can never get such a guarantee, said Thomas Harr, a currency strategist at Standard Chartered Plc in Singapore. The U.S. may assure China that it will clean up the financial system and that it wont push for a weaker dollar but they cant promise not to increase the fiscal deficit, he said.

U.S. government bonds returned 14 percent last year including price gains and reinvested interest, the most since rallying 18.5 percent in 1995, according to indexes compiled by Merrill Lynch & Co. Concern that the flood of bonds would overwhelm demand caused Treasuries to lose 3.08 percent in January, the steepest drop in almost five years, Merrill data show.

Chinas loss of more than $5 billion from investing $10.5 billion of its reserves in New York-based Blackstone Group LP, Morgan Stanley and TPG Inc. since mid-2007 may increase its demand for the relative safety of Treasuries.

The government will be a net buyer of Treasuries in the short term because theres no sign they have changed their strategy, said Zhang Ming, secretary general of the international finance research center at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences in Beijing. But personally, I dont think we should increase holdings because the medium- and long-term risks are quite high.

Fed Buying

Bill Gross, co-chief investment officer of Pacific Investment Management Co., said on Feb. 5 the Federal Reserve will have to buy Treasuries to curb yields as debt sales increase. Fed officials said Jan. 28 they were prepared to buy longer-term Treasuries.

The biggest concern for China to continue buying U.S. Treasuries is that if Obamas stimulus doesnt work out as expected, the Fed may have to print money to cover the deficit, said Shen Jianguang, a Hong Kong-based economist at China International Capital Corp., partly owned by Morgan Stanley. That will cause a dollar slump.

Chinas foreign-exchange reserves grew about $40 billion in the fourth quarter, the least since mid-2004, as an end to yuan appreciation since July prompted investors to pull money out.

The worlds third-biggest economy grew 6.8 percent in the fourth quarter, the slowest pace in seven years. Policy makers announced a 4 trillion yuan ($585 billion) economic stimulus plan in November to spur domestic demand.

Linking Disputes

Yu said China has no plans to channel its reserves toward stimulating its own economy because its trade surplus is sufficient to fund any import needs. Chinas trade surplus was $39 billion in January.

John Bolton at CPAC: The Benefits of Nuking Chicago

By Jonathan Stein 26 Feb 2009 Former UN Ambassador John Bolton believes the security of the United States is at dire risk under the Obama administration. And before a gathering of conservatives in Washington on Thursday morning [Conservative Political Action Conference - CPAC], he suggested, as something of a joke, that President Barack Obama might learn a needed lesson if Chicago were destroyed by a nuclear bomb.

A former high-ranking Bush administration official says the foreign policy and national security challenges the country faces are more than the Obama administration can handle. Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in the nation's capital, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton told attendees that he had some bad news for them -- Barack Obama is the most radical president in U.S. history. And then to the applause of the crowd, Bolton added that he had some good news -- if conservatives "get [their] act together," President Obama "will be a one-termer." Bolton said that although President Obama has done things that do not go as far as his campaign rhetoric originally advertised, "being inconsistent or deceptive is not the same thing as being a moderate."

The False Flag Nucking Chicago Attack Threat
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

As if the hate law threat is not ominous enough, we must also deal with the very real threat of a second 9-11 attack on American soil.
Capt Eric H. May and I have
very recently issued another false flag alert. We believe strongly that the greatest threat of a repeat 9-11 false flag attack is most likely to take place within the first nine months of the Obama Administration, much as the first 9-11 attack took place within this same initial period of George Bush’s first term in the White House. To find out more about the innovative work of former Army intelligence officer Capt. May to thwart possible repeat false flag attacks, please link to the Captain May articles archive here:
The March 3, 2008 The Lone Star Iconoclast editorial by publisher Leon Smith "Time to Investigate Houston is Now" demanded a Congressional investigation based upon Captain May’s brilliant work. Please follow up on this.
Incidentally, we have uncovered strong evidence that the Mossad and some portion of the CIA orchestrated 9-11 as an inside job, therefore we see another peculiar example of “bias crimes” committed by Federal authorities. The Federal government has lacked the courage the bring World Trade Center Tower landlord and arch-Zionist Larry Silverstein before a grand jury to fully explain his self-admitted role in “pulling” World Trade Center 7, much less charge him with the “ugly anti-gentile” hate crime of likely being complicit in the deaths of 3,000 Americans, and promulgating unnecessary Middle Eastern interventionism resulting in over a million military and civilian casualties
. The total financial costs will likely exceed $3 trillion, according to researchers Joseph Stiglitz and Linda Bilmes.
Although Rev Ted Pike is completely independent from Captain May and myself in terms of his political and religious views, the threats we address all stem from the same corrupt power elite. I mention in my concluding remarks below that this elite “would mobilize us into domestic tyranny and foreign wars, while distracting us from economic depression and the groups that brought it about.”
This is the real problem, not the lack of more “hate crime” laws. If anything, we need even more freedom of speech to speak truth to power, sort out our problems, and develop peaceful strategies to handle high level malefactors. This is why we urgently need for members of Congress to not only take a principled stand and stop all hate crime legislative initiatives, but to also roll back all the existing hate crime laws currently on the books.

Dear Capt. May,
Well, I know I said it before, but I think you saved our asses (at least for a while) against a Sears Tower demolition. I have little doubt the Mossad/neocon factions are plotting Plan B. And there's no way Obama has the wherewithal or even the foreknowledge to stop it...

Dear Theresa,

I only wish that I still had the strength to do radio interviews. I believe that your program at KBOO, Presswatch, is one of the most enlightened and best informed venues in which I have had the honor of speaking.
I'm honored by the conclusion that you have reached about my leadership of Ghost Troop, my cyber-intelligence unit, during the Chicago mission of 2006. Yesterday's article by Major Fox and me has caused many readers to remark the freak coincidences that:
-- Larry Silverstein, the purchaser of the World Trade Center, purchased Chicago's Sears Tower on the very day of the 3/11 (2004) Madrid bombings, between which and 9/11 (2001) there are exactly 911 days.
-- Sears Tower is exactly 110 stories tall. In human history there have only been three buildings with 110 stories. The other two, WTC 1 & 2, were the first skyscrapers in history to collapse as a result of fire -- on 9/11. Last week, the Mandarin Orange Hotel in China burned from top to bottom without a collapse.
-- 5/3/06, the date we predicted for the false flag attack flag alert, was the 33rd anniversary of the completion of the Sears Tower. I had no idea of this most revealing factoid during the mission, and only discovered it recently: http://www.searstow rofile.html
I hope that other open-minded patriots like you, who are concerned about the dangers of another 9/11-style attack, will refer to and examine the article yesterday by Major Fox and me:

Radio chip coming soon to your driver's license?
Homeland Security seeks next-generation REAL ID

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

By Bob Unruh
© 2009 WorldNetDaily

Privacy advocates are issuing warnings about a new radio chip plan that ultimately could provide electronic identification for every adult in the U.S. and allow agents to compile attendance lists at anti-government rallies simply by walking through the assembly.

The proposal, which has earned the support of Janet Napolitano, the newly chosen chief of the Department of Homeland Security, would embed radio chips in driver's licenses, or "enhanced driver's licenses."

"Enhanced driver's licenses give confidence that the person holding the card is the person who is supposed to be holding the card, and it's less elaborate than REAL ID," Napolitano said in a Washington Times report.

REAL ID is a plan for a federal identification system standardized across the nation that so alarmed governors many states have adopted formal plans to oppose it. However, a privacy advocate today told WND that the EDLs are many times worse.

Radio talk show host and identity chip expert Katherine Albrecht said REAL ID earned the opposition of Christians because of its resemblance to the biblical "mark of the beast," civil libertarians opposed it for its "big brother" connotations and others worried about identity theft issues with the proposed databases.

"We got rid of the REAL ID program, but [this one] is way more insidious," she said.

Enhanced driver's licenses have built-in radio chips providing an identifying number or information that can be accessed by a remote reading unit while the license is inside a wallet or purse.

The technology already had been implemented in Washington state, where it is promoted as an alternative to a passport for traveling to Canada. So far, the program is optional.

But there are other agreements already approved with Michigan, Vermont, New York and Arizona, and plans are under way in other states, including Texas, she said.

Enhanced Drivers Licenses: What Are They?

State-issued enhanced drivers licenses provide proof of identity and U.S. citizenship. These new documents are being developed by many states to comply with travel rules under the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI). Enhanced drivers licenses can be used by U.S. citizens instead of a passport to cross the border with Canada, Mexico. See more information about the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) requirements.

Enhanced drivers licenses will make it quicker and easier to cross the border back into the United States because they will contain

  • a vicinity Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip that will signal a computer to pull up your biographic and biometric data for the CBP Officer as you pull up to the border, and
  • a Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) or barcode that the CBP officer can read electronically if RFID isn't available.

Several border states (Arizona, California, Michigan, Texas, Vermont and Washington) are working with the Department to produce these enhanced drivers licenses.

Privacy Protection

No personally identifiable information will be stored on the card's RFID chip or be transmitted by the card. The card will use a unique identification number which will link to information contained in a secure database. This number will not contain any personal information.

When you get an enhanced drivers license you will also receive:

  • information on how to use, carry and protect your license, and
  • a shielded container that will prevent anyone from reading your license

The trio prescribed a rigidly enforced, government-imposed limit of two children per family. Holdren and the Ehrlichs maintained "there exists ample authority under which population growth could be regulated." Hiding behind the passive voice, they note, "it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society." (Emphasis added.) To underscore they mean business, they conclude, "If some individuals contribute to general social deterioration by overproducing children, and if the need is compelling, they can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility" (pp. 837-838). Moreover, if the United States government refuses to take proper measures, they authorize the United Nations to take compelling force. "A Comprehensive Planetary Regime." Holdren believed a world government might play a moderate role in the future: setting and enforcing appopriate population levels, taxing and redistributing the world's wealth, controlling the world's resources, and operating a standing World Army.

A rare peek at Homeland Security’s files on travelers

Dec 22, 2008

The oversize white envelope bore the blue logo of the Department of Homeland Security. Inside, I found 20 photocopies of the government’s records on my international travels. Every overseas trip I’ve taken since 2001 was noted.

I had requested the files after I had heard that the government tracks “passenger activity.” Starting in the mid-1990s, many airlines handed over passenger records. Since 2002, the government has mandated that the commercial airlines deliver this information routinely and electronically.

A passenger record typically includes the name of the person traveling, the name of the person who submitted the information while arranging the trip, and details about how the ticket was bought, according to documents published by the Department of Homeland Security. Records are made for citizens and non-citizens who cross our borders. An agent from U.S. Customs and Border Protection can generate a travel history for any traveler with a few keystrokes on a computer. Officials use the information to prevent terrorism, acts of organized crime, and other illegal activity.

I had been curious about what’s in my travel dossier, so I made a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for a copy. I’m posting here a few sample pages of what officials sent me.

My biggest surprise was that the Internet Protocol (I.P.) address of the computer used to buy my tickets via a Web agency was noted. On the first document image posted here, I’ve circled in red the I.P. address of the computer used to buy my pair of airline tickets.[An I.P. address is assigned to every computer on the Internet. Each time that computer sends an e-mail—or is used to make a purchase via a Web browser—it has to reveal its I.P. address, which tells its geographic location.]

The rest of my file contained details about my ticketed itineraries, the amount I paid for tickets, and the airports I passed through overseas. My credit card number was not listed, nor were any hotels I’ve visited. In two cases, the basic identifying information about my traveling companion (whose ticket was part of the same purchase as mine) was included in the file. Perhaps that information was included by mistake.

Some sections of my documents were blacked out by an official. Presumably, this information contains material that is classified because it would reveal the inner workings of law enforcement.

I have grayed out other parts of the documents because they contain information, such as my passport number, that I’d rather not share. The parts I’ve blocked out are colored gray to distinguish from the government censor’s black marker.

Here’s the lowdown on the records.

The commercial airlines send these passenger records to Customs and Border Protection, an agency within the Department of Homeland Security. Computers match the information with the databases of federal departments, such as Treasury, Agriculture, and Homeland Security. Computers uncover links between known and previously unidentified terrorists or terrorist suspects, as well as suspicious or irregular travel patterns. Some of this information comes from foreign governments and law enforcement agencies. The data is also crosschecked with American state and local law enforcement agencies, which are tracking persons who have warrants out for their arrest or who are under restraining orders. The data is used not only to fight terrorism but also to prevent and combat acts of organized crime and other illegal activity.

Officials use the information to help decide if a passenger needs to have additional screening. Case in point: After overseas trips, I’ve stood in lines at U.S. border checkpoints and had my passport swiped and my electronic file examined. A few times, something in my record has prompted officers to pull me over to a side room, where I have been asked additional questions. Sometimes I’ve had to clarify a missing middle initial. Other times, I have been referred to a secondary examination. (I’ve blogged about this before.)When did this electronic data collection start? In 1999, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (then known as the U.S. Customs Service) began receiving passenger identification information electronically from certain air carriers on a voluntary basis, though some paper records were shared prior to that. A mandatory, automated program began about 6 years ago. Congress funds this Automated Targeting System’s Passenger Screening Program to the tune of about $30 million a year.

How safe is your information? Regulations prohibit officials from sharing the records of any traveler—or the government’s risk assessment of any traveler—with airlines or private companies. A record is kept for 15 years—unless it is linked to an investigation, in which case it can be kept indefinitely. Agency computers do not encrypt the data, but officials insist that other measures—both physical and electronic—safeguard our records.I wonder if the government’s data collecting is relevant and necessary to accomplish the agency’s purpose in protecting our borders. The volume of data collected, and the rate at which the records is growing and being shared with officials nationwide, suggests that the potential for misuse could soar out of hand. Others may wonder if the efforts are effective. For instance, I asked security expert Bruce Schneier Schneider about the Feds’ efforts to track passenger activity, and he responded by e-mail:

“I think it’s a waste of time. There’s this myth that we can pick terrorists out of the crowd if we only knew more information.”

On the other hand, some people may find it reassuring that the government is using technology to keep our borders safe.What do you think? Feel free to post a comment, below.

Oh, one more thing: Are your records worth seeing? Maybe not, unless you’ve been experiencing a problem crossing our nation’s borders. For one thing, the records are a bit dull. In my file, for instance, officials had blacked out the (presumably) most fascinating parts, which were about how officials assessed my risk profile. What’s more, the records are mainly limited to information that airline and passport control officials have collected, so you probably won’t be surprised by anything you read in them. Lastly, there may be a cost. While there was no charge to me when I requested my records, you might charged a fee of up to $50 if there is difficulty in obtaining your records. Of course, there’s a cost to taxpayers and to our nation’s security resources whenever a request is filed, too.

However, if you are being detained at the border or if you suspect a problem with your records, then by all means request a copy. U.S. Customs and Border Protection is required by law to make your records available to you, with some exceptions. Your request must be made in writing on paper and be signed by you. Ask to see the “information relating to me in the Automated Targeting System.” Say that your request is “made pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, as amended (5 U.S.C. 552).” Add that you wish to have a copy of your records made and mailed to you without first inspecting them. Your letter should, obviously, give reasonably sufficient detail to enable an official to find your record. So supply your passport number and mailing address. Put a date on your letter and make a copy for your own records. On your envelope, you should conspicuously print the words “FOIA Request.” It should be addressed to “Freedom of Information Act Request,” U.S. Customs Service, 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20229. Be patient. I had wait for up to a year to receive a copy of my records. Then if you believe there’s an error in your record, ask for a correction by writing a letter to the Customer Satisfaction Unit, Office of Field Operations, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Room 5.5C, 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20229.

Dallas Wants to Buy Your Guns for a $50 gift card from Kroger

Deputy Mayor Pro Tem aims to get guns off the streets.
That's Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway's plan, anyway: Folks who bring an "operational, unloaded firearm" (oh, and an ID) to Reunion Arena on Saturday between 9 a.m. and noon will receive in exchange a $50 grocery card -- from Kroger, sounds like, courtesy such sponsors as 97.9 THE BEAT and Schepps Dairy. Caraway's been talking about this since the beginning of the year, and he figured better sooner than later. Says Caraway in a media release distributed in advance of a noon press conference, "If we get one or five hundred firearms off the streets, we would have accomplished our goal to get them off the market and prevent these guns from being stolen and used in crimes. To do nothing is not an option; we need to be proactive to increase safety in our community."

Oh, and speaking of Reunion Arena ... Yes, the council's supposed to vote today on green-lighting a contract to demolish the former home of Your Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars. But Angela Hunt wonders, What's the rush? Because the city sure could use some indoor sporting facilities, and, really, why spend $2 million to demo the building when there's not even a developer with a plan in place for its replacement? As she tells KERA-90.1, "The best answer may be demolition, but we shouldn't go in that direction until we look at every other possibility. And it's apparent the city hasn't done that."

Concentration Camps Confirmed on San Francisco Chronicle!!! !!

Rule by fear or rule by law?
Lewis Seiler,Dan Hamburg
Monday, February 4, 2008
"The power of the Executive to cast a man into prison without formulating any charge known to the law, and particularly to deny him the judgment of his peers, is in the highest degree odious and is the foundation of all totalitarian government whether Nazi or Communist."

- Winston Churchill, Nov. 21, 1943

Since 9/11, and seemingly without the notice of most Americans, the federal government has assumed the authority to institute martial law, arrest a wide swath of dissidents (citizen and noncitizen alike), and detain people without legal or constitutional recourse in the event of "an emergency influx of immigrants in the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs."

Beginning in 1999, the government has entered into a series of single-bid contracts with Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) to build detention camps at undisclosed locations within the United States. The government has also contracted with several companies to build thousands of railcars, some reportedly equipped with shackles, ostensibly to transport detainees.

According to diplomat and author Peter Dale Scott, the KBR contract is part of a Homeland Security plan titled ENDGAME, which sets as its goal the removal of "all removable aliens" and "potential terrorists."

Fraud-busters such as Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Los Angeles, have complained about these contracts, saying that more taxpayer dollars should not go to taxpayer-gouging Halliburton. But the real question is: What kind of "new programs" require the construction and refurbishment of detention facilities in nearly every state of the union with the capacity to house perhaps millions of people?

Sect. 1042 of the 2007 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), "Use of the Armed Forces in Major Public Emergencies, " gives the executive the power to invoke martial law. For the first time in more than a century, the president is now authorized to use the military in response to "a natural disaster, a disease outbreak, a terrorist attack or any other condition in which the President determines that domestic violence has occurred to the extent that state officials cannot maintain public order."

The Military Commissions Act of 2006, rammed through Congress just before the 2006 midterm elections, allows for the indefinite imprisonment of anyone who donates money to a charity that turns up on a list of "terrorist" organizations, or who speaks out against the government's policies. The law calls for secret trials for citizens and noncitizens alike.

Also in 2007, the White House quietly issued National Security Presidential Directive 51 (NSPD-51), to ensure "continuity of government" in the event of what the document vaguely calls a "catastrophic emergency." Should the president determine that such an emergency has occurred, he and he alone is empowered to do whatever he deems necessary to ensure "continuity of government." This could include everything from canceling elections to suspending the Constitution to launching a nuclear attack. Congress has yet to hold a single hearing on NSPD-51.

U.S. Rep. Jane Harman, D-Venice (Los Angeles County) has come up with a new way to expand the domestic "war on terror." Her Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 (HR1955), which passed the House by the lopsided vote of 404-6, would set up a commission to "examine and report upon the facts and causes" of so-called violent radicalism and extremist ideology, then make legislative recommendations on combatting it.

According to commentary in the Baltimore Sun, Rep. Harman and her colleagues from both sides of the aisle believe the country faces a native brand of terrorism, and needs a commission with sweeping investigative power to combat it.

A clue as to where Harman's commission might be aiming is the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, a law that labels those who "engage in sit-ins, civil disobedience, trespass, or any other crime in the name of animal rights" as terrorists. Other groups in the crosshairs could be anti-abortion protesters, anti-tax agitators, immigration activists, environmentalists, peace demonstrators, Second Amendment rights supporters ... the list goes on and on. According to author Naomi Wolf, the National Counterterrorism Center holds the names of roughly 775,000 "terror suspects" with the number increasing by 20,000 per month.

What could the government be contemplating that leads it to make contingency plans to detain without recourse millions of its own citizens?

The Constitution does not allow the executive to have unchecked power under any circumstances. The people must not allow the president to use the war on terrorism to rule by fear instead of by law.

Lewis Seiler is the president of Voice of the Environment, Inc. Dan Hamburg, a former congressman, is executive director.

Area schools are teaching students how to prepare for the possibility of violence on campus by holding lockdown drills so they'll know what to do. Students at Dundee Elementary went through one of those drills, announcing a mock emergency and giving people three minutes to secure the building. Omaha police officers form a response plan and then move in, closing off every entrance, checking every door and walking every hallway. "Generally, we go ahead and check that the students and staff are secure, out of sight and quiet," said Omaha police Sgt. Mike Hearty. Eventually, school officials give the students an all-clear message. Principal Kaye Goetzinger said she wants to make sure her students know why they hold the drills. "If there was ever an intruder in our building or outside, we need to keep our kids safe and secure," said Goetzinger. "If I have to make that announcement over the intercom, (I hope) they aren't questioning, 'Where do I go?' They know immediately."

The video and transcript have been translated:

Narrator: November 11, 2007, Flight 266 from London to Athens. Everything began when the captain of the flight No 266 of the company Olympic Airways, direct from London to Athens, a strange UFO or moving object in the area west of Athens. It was like a star, but much bigger and bright, and constantly changing its shape.

At the same time, the captains of two other flights of Olympic Airways, the 730 and 700 reported seeing the UFO as well.

This was also confirmed by the control tower in Athens, whose employees were able to observe Karystos, a small town on the island of Evia.

Civil contact with the military, which responded that they spotted the object, traveling at an icredible speed in a northern direction from the radar station on Mount Parnitha Athenian.

The presidium of the radar station describes the UFO as a slightly unusual and not attributable to aircraft known.

The strange object was also photographed by the soldiers of the station, but to date there have been no public photos.

Narrator: November 11, 2007, Flight 266 from London to Athens. Olympic Airways pilot to communicate with flight control at the Eleftherios Venizelos Airport (Athens International) - this is the conversation:

Pilot: There other aircraft flying around/near us?

Torre: negative, "Why?

Pilot: I see to my right, about the same height, an unknown object flying from the south east.

Torre: No, nothing is all. What is it? Is it harassing your flight?

Pilot: For the moment no, but its altitude and direction are not stable.

Torre: What exactly do you mean? Because I have no trace on the radar.

Pilot: Increases speed and its movements are irregular.

Vernor Vinge, computer scientist and science fiction author of such novels as, A Fire Upon the Deep and Rainbows End, says the exponential growth in technology will lead to the creation of superhuman intelligence, leading to the end of the human era. Vinge coined the meme, 'the Singularity' to describe what could happen when technological capabilities rapidly expand to reach a point beyond which we cannot even speculate about the consequences. It has also come to describe the crossover point when raw microprocessing power surpasses the capabilities of the human brain. "Moore's law provides half of a plausibility argument for why it is reasonable to think that we may get superhuman intelligence," said Vinge. "While Moore's law provides an argument for estimating what sort of computational power is available, there is still the question on whether we can figure out how to put that computational power together in such a way that it produces the type of superhuman I'm referring to." "No one can dispute technology's rapid evolution over the past 20 years," said Valerie Buckingham, director of technology marketing, Nokia. "The concepts of artificial intelligence and technological singularity inform much of Vinge's writing and speak to the broader concept of technology's growing impact on human connectivity..."

Magical Shape-Shifting Material

Researchers are working on a concept that will make today's technology look like the stone age. Some call it an optical illusion, others say it's "animated artwork" and its applications are endless.

Cat-boy can see in the darkImage and video hosting by TinyPic

A 'cat-boy' has stunned medics with his ability to see in pitch black with eyes that glow in the dark.

Doctors have studied Nong Youhui’s amazing eyesight since his father took him to hospital in Dahua, southern China, concerned over his bright blue eyes.

Dad Ling said: "They told me he would grow out of it and that his eyes would stop glowing and turn black like most Chinese people but they never did."

Medical tests conducted in complete darkness show Youhui can read perfectly without any light and sees as clearly as most people do during the day.

Experts believe he was born with a rare condition called leukodermia which has left his eyes with less protective pigment and more sensitive to light.

The Earth's magnetic field has been decreasing. This decrease actually began 2000 years ago, but the rate of decrease suddenly became much more rapid 500 years ago. Now, in the last 20 years or so, the magnetic field has become erratic. Aeronautical maps of the world — which are used to allow airplanes to land using automatic pilot systems — have had to be revised worldwide in order for the automatic pilot systems to work. Late last year, the Arctic ice cap on the exact spot of the North Pole completely melted for the first time in known history. Green Peace reported that, relative to the winter ice pattern, the cap had previously melted over 300 miles toward the pole, and that late last year both military and civilian ships were able to actually pass directly over the North Pole. It was water. Until now, as far as we know, there has never been a time where the ice was less than ten feet thick. In contrast, the South Pole has an ice cap that is about three miles deep, and yet huge pieces of ice continue to break off and melt.

Almost 90,000 food crop seed samples have arrived at the "doomsday vault" in the Arctic Circle, as part of its first anniversary celebrations. The four-tonne shipment takes the number of seeds stored in the frozen repository to more than 20 million. The Svalbard Global Seed Vault, built 130m (426ft) inside a mountain, aims to protect the world's food crop species against natural and human disasters. The £5m ($7m) facility took 12 months to build and opened in February 2008. "The vault was opened last year to ensure that, one day, all of humanity's existing food crop varieties would be safely protected," explained Cary Fowler, executive director of the Global Crop Diversity Trust (GCDT). "It's amazing how far we have come towards accomplishing that goal." The arrival of the latest consignment of seed samples means that the vault, deep inside a mountain on Norway's Svalbard archipelago, is now storing a third of the planet's most important food crop varieties. Among the anniversary arrivals are 32 varieties of potatoes from Ireland's national gene banks. It was a lack of diversity among Ireland's potato crops that was believed to have caused the deaths of more than one million people when blight wiped out the nation's potato harvests in the mid-1800s...

Every year thousands of revellers flock to watch dawn break on the summer and winter solstices at Stonehenge, which Druids believe is a temple to the alignment of the sun. Although no-one knows the reason behind the prehistoric stone circle in Wiltshire, it is widely accepted its design was such that it would mark the longest and shortest days of the year. Now a mysterious spectacle which appears to honour the two other most significant days in the solar calendar has been discovered in a Suffolk church. This year's spring equinox - when the day and night are of equal length - will shed light on a religious statue and with it an extraordinary secret that remained hidden for hundreds of years. Weather permitting, for just four minutes on March 20 a beam of evening sunlight will filter through a small window at Barsham Church, near Beccles, and bathe a sculpture of Christ on the Cross in a golden light.

Uwe Luthardt was a senior member of the NPD but quit to inform on the party which Germany tried unsuccessfully to ban several years ago. He told of weapons stores and how members greet each other with "Heil Hitler" salutes, sing the banned songs of the Third Reich and relish the idea of a new Holocaust against the Jews. Last year neo-Nazi attacks in Germany reached an all-time high and authorities are battling to stop youngsters from being attracted to the politics of the right – particularly now that Germany is in a deep recession and jobs are being lost by the thousands every day. Luthardt, a former board member of the party, said he was threatened that he could "disappear" if he informed on its inner workings. "Someone who just quits usually gets a lot of problems, and can find himself waking up in intensive care," he said.

With a satanic bible in the boot of their car and using a tourist guide to pilgrimage sites they selected holy places of worship where they claimed Catholic saints had raised ancient Celtic pagan monuments replacing them with Christian churches and chapels. They scrawled satanic symbols and inverted crosses on premises they defiled - all in the name of their sect, True Armorik Black Metal. The Court heard how two of the group all aged in their twenties were members of a Black Metal music group, the words in their songs glorified Hitler as the new anti-Christ and invoked scenes from "The Silence of the Lambs". In Court in Quimper the defendants all from western Brittany, denied worshipping Satan and having adulated Hitler and the Nazi Party.

Power Grab Inherent in Claims of Identity Fraud. You would not have the issue of identity theft if the socialists did not create this artifice of identity to begin with in order to practise redistribution. Under Common Law, any identity may be assumed provided it is not fraudulent. Latin casuistry disagrees because it despises our legal system.
