Maitreya steps forward
The way prepared by His Herald the ‘star’, Maitreya, the World Teacher, has given His first interview on American television. Millions have heard Him speak both on TV and the internet.
His open mission has begun.
He was introduced not as Maitreya, the World Teacher and Head of our Spiritual Hierarchy, but simply as a man, one of us. In this way He “ensures that men follow and support Him for the truth and sanity of His ideas rather than for His status”.
He spoke earnestly of the need for peace, achievable only through the creation of justice and the sharing of the world’s resources.
This is the first of many such interviews which will be given in the USA, Japan, Europe and elsewhere, bringing His message of hope to the world.

Swine flu vaccine sales hit $1.36B 16 Jan 2010 British drug maker GlaxoSmithKline said Friday that sales of its swine flu vaccine products totaled 835 million pounds (944 million euros, $1.36 billion) in the fourth quarter of last year. "GSK today confirmed that approximately 130 million doses of its pandemic H1N1 adjuvanted vaccine were shipped to governments in the fourth quarter of 2009," the London-listed firm said in a statement.
WHO official denies exaggeration about dangers of swine flu pandemic 15 Jan 2010 A top World
Health Homicide Organization official Thursday dismissed charges that the agency exaggerated the threat posed by the H1N1 virus and that it had been unduly influenced by the pharmaceutical industry to issue dire warnings about the swine flu pandemic. "The world is going through a real pandemic. The description of it as a fake is both wrong and irresponsible, " Keiji Fukuda, the special adviser to the WHO director general on pandemic influenza, told reporters during a briefing. "We did take very great care that the advice it received is not unduly influenced." [Um, except when the virus was *let loose* by one of the corporations that made a *killing* on the pandemic.

Blair froze out Iraq war dissenters 14 Jan 2010 Tony Blair froze out anyone with concerns about the Iraq war and was not challenged on the issue by a Cabinet that had been "conditioned" to accept that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, the Iraq inquiry has been told. Lord Turnbull, who as Cabinet Secretary was Britain's most senior civil servant, said that Mr Blair largely surrounded himself with those who would not disagree with him, while those who did have concerns were given almost no time to discuss the issue.
Haiti & the Four Stooges
The four creatures are George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George Bush Jr. and Obamanation, who was just admitted to this elite club of war-criminals. Together their human-rights record in times of Disasters, whether natural or man-made, literally boggles the mind of anyone that thinks the United States Government is ever “here to help.”
Hurricane Andrew and its aftermath is one of the most volatile examples of the difference between government spin and on the ground reality in time of need, that the world has seen from these four war-criminals. More than twice as many people died in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew, in 1992, as were murdered in the attacks of 911, yet the public knows virtually nothing about these crimes at all. And to this day the events surrounding Hurricane Andrew in South Florida remain sealed under national security protections.
“The largest natural disaster ever recorded in the history of the United States was hurricane Andrew, which struck South Dade County , Florida , as midnight turned the clock into August 24, 1992. Contrary to what the American news media broadcast across the United States and throughout Europe, the first outer wall of the hurricane unexpectedly slammed into South Dade , packing 214+ mph winds which quickly escalated to 350+ mph. Most of the 414,151 residents living in the danger zone were asleep when the outer wall struck. Thousands of them lost their lives, for no one in South Dade had been evacuated or even advised to evacuate. Instead, residents had been repeatedly informed by local news media that South Dade should expect to experience "50 mph winds".
By 11.00 am the following morning, 8,230 mobile homes along with 9,140 apartments had vanished off the face of the Earth. The Hiroshima-like horror was beyond catastrophic. Entire families perished in ways too horrifying to describe. The stench of death had already begun to saturate miles and miles of the massive devastation; the hot humid air was reeking with foul, rotting flesh.
How do I know? Because I was in the midst of it all.
The survivors of hurricane Andrew and the rest of the American people were betrayed by their own government. But the betrayal also extended to foreign nationals. At the time Andrew struck, South Dade was inhabited by a large population of Mexican illegal immigrants. The United States Department of Immigration was fully aware of their presence but quietly turned its back on the situation, knowing full well that South Dade farmers couldn't afford to harvest their crops without the help of the Mexican illegals. The heavily populated migrant camps were situated at the edge of the Florida Everglades . The people who lived there vanished without a trace during that fated night. Many bodies were found way out in the Everglades .
When I lectured at the Clearwater Convention in Florida in 1999, a man in the audience stood up and introduced himself as Chief Petty Officer Roy Howard. He proceeded to address the audience with this exact statement, which is now a matter of public record:
Just for your information, I was called up to active duty after hurricane Andrew went through South Dade County . I spent nine weeks down there. Now I will certify for the benefit of our audience here that the death figures that were officially published are totally inaccurate. According to the information which I received from my own sources within the National Guard, the figure I was quoted when I was down there was 5,280-something. And they were quietly disposed of in incinerators that were hurriedly put together by both the National Guard and FEMA...
As the Chief Petty Officer stated, "5,280-something" bodies were confiscated by the United States National Guard. In addition to this, the Coast Guard independently confiscated "1,500 bodies" from the lakes and surrounding waters. Neither one of these figures embraces the number of dead bodies confiscated by other branches of federal and state government directly involved in the body pick-up operation. This leaves the number of dead confiscated by various US authorities in South Dade still unknown.
The total number who died during hurricane Andrew is obviously staggering, yet whenever the "official death toll" is mentioned in the media, a figure of anywhere between 15 and 59 is quoted. The population of the 21 communities annihilated by Andrew's eye-wall had been officially recorded by the Dade County Census Bureau as 415,151 before Andrew struck. Bodies of human beings confiscated and disposed-of like rubbish, as if their lives had no more worth or meaning than a piece of discarded litter--it's horrifying to be suddenly confronted by the same kind of atrocities as perpetrated by the Nazis. Once again repeating history, a master-minded cover-up was dutifully carried out by armed military forces, right smack in the midst of horrendous human suffering.
When Hurricane Andrew slammed into South Dade, the State Attorney of Florida was none other than Janet Reno. Her office was located at the Dade County Court House in the City of Miami . The President of the United States was President George H.W. Bush, and the Vice-President was Dan Quayle. Bill Clinton was running for President, and Al Gore for Vice-President. Senator Bob Graham held office, and the late Lawton Chiles was Governor of Florida . His successor turned out to be Jeb Bush, still the Governor of Florida and, ironically enough, the son of former President Bush whose other son, George W. Bush, the then Governor of Texas, has since become the "self-selected" President of the United States...” (1)
Andrew happened on the watch of GWH Bush with Clinton in the wings (Slick-Willie oversaw the cover-up). George Bush Junior gave us Katrina, Houston , Galveston , and numerous catastrophic fire storms plus devastating floods. Yet FEMA’s record in response to all of this is not just abysmal, it is criminally negligent on all counts, and the whole world knows it: yet nothing is done.
Today Obamanation, the war-president of this Police-state, has announced that he is bringing in George W. Bush (junior) and Bill (hands off every real human rights problem) Clinton, to assist in organizing the relief for Haiti ! Wow – apparently not enough people have died yet in Haiti to satisfy these blood-thirsty colonial servants to their puppet-masters; so in the interests of saving political-face instead of human lives: Obama wants to bring in the Bigtime Criminals perhaps to oversee the redistribution of any wealth that hasn’t already been stolen from the Haitian people.
One other major figure has also been called on: That would be the traitor, former General Colin Powell. People might remember him as the man that sold the world on Weapons of Mass Destruction at the UN, which he knew to be nothing but a pack of lies. Once this was exposed to the world “the general” stayed on rather than do the honorable thing and just resign.
If this were a military operation then this tragedy beyond measure in Haiti would already have seen occupying troops in every open space where helicopters could be landing and taking off every few minutes. Off shore the Seabees and the Army Corp of Engineers would be massing to clear the rubble and re-build the necessary roads; working to reconnect communications, while providing food and medicine wherever needed. Hospital ships would be available for air-evacuations of the most critical patients and all of this would have been in place yesterday. As things stand the major nations are still lining up their talking heads and figuring out how to make Haiti pay for all this generosity that will never arrive!
If this had been a purely military operation the money needed would have been instantly available from the corrupt congress (and from the allied forces of “the willing” nations). All of this effort would have already been contracted out to siphon off as much of this largess as possible; but enough would be left over to at least have eased the pain and to have been successful in saving hundreds if not thousands of lives.
This entire disaster reeks of set-up; but however this “happened” the truth about so many nations will finally be seen in how the aftermath of this earthquake-in- Haiti is actually dealt with. Don’t look to the UN or to very many of all those hundreds of privatized agencies—because these kinds of events are why most of those supposedly humanitarian organizations were formed in the first place: to drain the pockets of those that want to help (but only from a distance).
The world is so screwed up right now because this is yet another example of what actually happens when we “never look back” upon all the crimes that every “new” administration continues and usually amplifies upon, just as soon as they take over from the previous criminal-enterprise which of course they succeeded, in their own turn at the trough of draining the public’s money to fill the already over-filled pockets for yet more private-profits; wherever that opportunity presents itself. Just yesterday three major credit card companies were caught capitalizing on credit-card transactions that were sent as relief funds which they saw as a major opportunity for unforeseen profits. The companies had to back down on what they thought of as a windfall of 5 to 7 percent profit created by a transaction swipe-fee: This should have been prosecuted as a crime, but once they agreed to reverse themselves (only because they got caught) the whole matter was dropped after a few critical lines on CNN.
Instead of helping anyone, the US media is just racing around holding hands with themselves to wail and morn the crisis; while adding to it with the duplicity of what they have never reported regarding every real crisis that this nation, or indeed any poor nation has ever had to face, anywhere on this planet.
Haiti and its blood-soaked history was raped and brutalized by the French and the Americans along with others because Haiti was the first black slave-state to have successfully revolted and overthrown their so-called masters. The USA has since invaded and occupied that “poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere” way too often to ever be considered as a nation that cares at all—except of course as a place that invades to redistribute the wealth and the political power of Haiti, every few decades. The French were so helpful from the beginning that they held Haiti in financial bondage for a hundred years while they extorted reparations for the slaves that the French lost when the rebellion succeeded in freeing them. Anyone that thinks that slavery is dead, or that colonial nation-states are a thing of the past needs to read about Haiti in depth: because the history of that tiny Republic is riddled with the contradictions and lies that are still alive and well today.
However the truth is out there among all those security-protected- murders and sealed records, if anyone were brave enough to demand that the records of these ‘disasters’ be unsealed. But just as Rummy so famously said during the beginning of Shock & Awe in Baghdad “We don’t do nation-building” – it could be said of this continuing fiasco ‘we don’t do humanitarian aid either.’ The current world is all about private profits and the redistribution of wealth no matter the costs; so much so in fact that someone needs to dig a lot deeper into the causes of this supposed earthquake if any reality is ever to known about what really happened on that conflicted island.
This ‘Disaster’ will prove to be yet another example of the duplicity and lies that our continued silence has bought and paid for millions of times over just because too few care that they are being treated like a herd of cattle to be used and abused and then slaughtered for the mega-profits of their owners—worldwide!

Obama asks 'Heckuva job, Brownie' George W. Bush to help with Haiti relief efforts By Lori Price, www.legitgov. org 15 Jan 2010 Mega barf alert AND gag me with a chainsaw! Because George W. Bush did *such* a great job responding to Hurricane Katrina (aka blown levies), President Barack Obama is asking his killer drone soul mate to help with Haiti relief efforts! Such a request assigns legitimacy to the illegitimate P_resident that was Bush, who was installed in a coup d'etat, and serves to permanently elevate Bush from war criminal and torturer (Shock & Awe executor, Waterboarder- in-Chief) to world-class humanitarian.
'Some 40,000 bodies had been buried in mass graves.' Haiti says 200,000 may be dead, violence breaks out --Quake could be one of the 10 deadliest in history 15 Jan 2010 As many as 200,000 people died in the earthquake that devastated Haiti and three-quarters of the capital, Port-au-Prince, will need to be rebuilt, authorities in the Caribbean country said on Friday. "We have already collected around 50,000 dead bodies. We anticipate there will be between 100,000 and 200,000 dead in total, although we will never know the exact number," Interior Minister Paul Antoine Bien-Aime told Reuters. Some 40,000 bodies had been buried in mass graves, Secretary of State for Public Safety Aramick Louis said.
Haiti earthquake: corpses used as roadblocks as anger grows 15 Jan 2010 Angry Haitians have used corpses of the dead to set up roadblocks in Port-au-Prince to protest at the delay in emergency aid reaching the country after a devastating earthquake. Shaul Schwarz, a photographer for TIME magazine, said he saw at least two downtown roadblocks formed with bodies of earthquake victims and rocks. "They are starting to block the roads with bodies, it's getting ugly out there, people are fed up with getting no help," he said.
US military moves in troops, ships to aid quake-hit Haiti 14 Jan 2010 The first contingent of thousands of US troops headed to Haiti Thursday as the military mobilized an array of ships, planes and helicopters to provide emergency aid after a massive earthquake. A company of about 100 soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division were expected in quake-hit Haiti by the evening, with the remainder of their 3,500-strong brigade due to arrive by Sunday, Pentagon officials said. "They will provide humanitarian assistance and relief and security as required," army spokesman Gary Tallman told AFP.
Cuba increases aid to Haiti 14 Jan 2010 On Wednesday morning, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla received his counterpart from the Republic of Suriname, Lygia Louise Irene Kraag-Keteldijk, who is on an official visit to our country. As part of official talks between the two ministers, Rodríguez gave a detailed explanation of the situation of Cuban cooperation workers in the Republic of Haiti. In that context, he clarified that there are currently "403 Cuban cooperative personnel, 334 of whom are working in the heath sector as doctors and paramedics," in the devastated country.
Obama team grants special status to Haitian nationals in U.S. 15 Jan 2010 The Obama administration is allowing Haitian nationals who were in the United States at the time of Tuesday's earthquake to over-stay their visa for the next 18 months. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano stated: 'This is a disaster of historic proportions and this designation will allow eligible Haitian nationals in the United States to continue living and working in our country for the next 18 months...'

For the survivors of Haiti post earthquake, doing nothing is unconscionable.
What has America done for you lately?
Secretary of State Clinton said this morning- and we paraphrase from CNN- we have given over 3 billion dollars to Haiti and as my husband as the Special U.S. Envoy under President Obama, I feel that it is America’s responsibility to lead the effort of rebuilding the nation. Her remarks on the ground can be found via http://secretaryclinton.wordpress.com/2010/01/16/secretary-hillary-clintons-remarks-in-haiti/
Now former President’s Clinton and Bush, who’s response to Katrina was not so happy have teamed up to garner more aid for the people of Haiti. Publicly we can all text our $10, but it is the phone calls to current and former heads of state that will get the funds pouring in. Whether the aid to help the people of Haiti actually follows will be a different story. The Clinton Bush charity site, with no mention of Bush in the address link is at https://re.clintonfoundation.org/SSLPage.aspx?pid=3884. The Red Cross Donation site at http://www.redcross.org/ featuring a message from the First Lady, Michelle Obama. Or to text “HAITI” to 90999 or “Yele” to 501501.
None-the-less, we can’t help but wonder what advantage America would have dominating the country of Haiti? Oil, natural resources? A diversion from Iraq and Afghanistan? Puerto Rico is a U.S. Territory, why not add Haiti to the mix?
Is it America’s responsibility? Did America have any responsibility in causing the earthquake with technology like HAARP and ESCIAT as posted at http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/01/14/haiti-earthquake-conspiracy-haarp-eiscat/
“The HAARP Induction Magnetometer was provided by Prof. Kanji Hayashi of the Department of Earth and Planetary Physics, University of Tokyo. This instrument measures the geomagnetic field using three orthogonal sensors aligned along the magnetic north (Bx), magnetic east (By), and vertical (Bz) directions. The data acquisition system samples these signals continuously at a 10 Hz rate with 16-bit resolution, producing timeseries data.”
Whatever! We believe the technological jargon means- you should be able to hear significant sounds effecting a geomagnetic field disturbance as is possible during an earthquake. A lot of the sounds sound like birds chirping in static but the day before the quake we get this on January 11- http://188.8.131.52/cgi-bin/scmag/disp-scmag.cgi?date=20100111&Bx=on At 20 seconds long there is only a little hiccup, but the next day when the 7.0 magnitude quake hits Haiti, there is unusual silence. Yes, silence. Not what we, as laymen would have expected.
January 12, 2010 http://184.108.40.206/cgi-bin/scmag/disp-scmag.cgi?date=20100112&Bx=on we have more SILENT STATIC.
The 2008 Sichuan earthquake or the Great Sichuan Earthquake was the deadly quake that measured at 8.0 occurred at 14:28:01.42 CST (06:28:01.42 UTC) on May 12, 2008 in Sichuan province of China and killed at least 68,000 people. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008_Sichuan_earthquake
What did the measurements pick up on May 12, 2008? Half way thru the 20 second condensed sound recording a big old hic up, most likely the quake at http://220.127.116.11/cgi-bin/scmag/disp-scmag.cgi?20080512. There was no silence this day!
HAARP is not alone is developing magnometers- http://www.patentstorm.us/assignee-patents/_Elf_Engineering__Ltd_/143077/1.html“ The ELF group is involved in diverse applications for a broad range of industries. ELF produces electronic compasses using patented magneto-inductive technology for orientating applications including weather buoy, tidal current movement, geotechnical tilt and instrument antennae. ELF also produces magnetometers for aerospace, with applications in remote-piloted-vehicles, surveying and the projectile markets.” via http://www.subsea.org/company/listdetails.asp?companyid=1269 Ironically, this company has disappeared off the map with no website. Maybe someone has more time to research this patent and company?
The only ELF group we found was Earth Liberation Front. “A former leader of the Earth Liberation Front said he is a “patriot” fighting for the rights and health of Americans. But, the FBI said the former leader is nothing more than a “terrorist.” The ELF is one of the FBI’s top priorities in its fight against domestic terrorism. “ http://www.10news.com/news/2856840/detail.html Doubtfully connected and we have enough problems with freaking terrorists without the Earth Libbers.
Others may include via http://conspiracyrealitytv.com/haarp-earthquake-maker-weather-modification/ :
Patent 4686605 claims the following uses.
“cause total disruption of all forms of communications over a very large portion of the Earth”
“missile or aircraft destruction, deflection, or confusion”
“weather modification by altering solar absorption”
“also altering composition of the atmosphere”
This patent was classified by the Navy under national security order in 1987, but other patents exists for purposes of:
Power beaming system (US Patent 5068669 )
Artificial ionospheric mirror composed of a plasma layer (US Patent 5041834)
Creation of artificial ionization clouds above the earth (US Patent 4999637)
Defense system for discriminating between objects in space (US Patent 4817495)
Nuclear-sized explosions without radiation (US Patent 4873928)
Whether any of these patents from HAARP, ESCIAT, or other organizations or governments can actually cause an earthquake of this magnitude are all debatable, but the patents exist.
We would be negligent to not throw in the Russian Woodpecker technology disrupting radar and communications in the past and perhaps the present. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_Woodpecker The Russian Woodpecker array potentially able to alter electromagnetic waves is semi-officially offline since Chernobyl.
So what don’t “they” want us to know or share? Our antenna are twisting when reading this:
Cass Sunstein, a Harvard law professor, co-wrote an academic article entitled “Conspiracy Theories: Causes and Cures,” in which he argued that the government should stealthily infiltrate groups that pose alternative theories on historical events via “chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine” those groups. As head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Sunstein is in charge of “overseeing policies relating to privacy, information quality, and statistical programs,” from the White House Web site. via http://rawstory.com/2010/01/obama-staffer-infiltration-911-groups/
A cure for conspiracy? Just what would a conspiracy undermine? The truth? Rather and academic professor.
We know of no cure for natural occurring or if possible man made earthquakes other to run like hell and perhaps listen to the likes of Giampaolo Guiliani, the Italian seismologist who predicted the earthquake of L’Aquila, a 80 miles (130 km) east of Rome and posted here http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/04/08/italy-earthquake-warnings-by-giampaolo-guiliani-dismissed/
We sure as shit question Pat Robertson, “the evangelical Christian who once suggested God was punishing Americans with Hurricane Katrina, says a “pact to the devil” brought on the devastating earthquake in Haiti….”Robertson, the host of the “700 Club,” blamed the tragedy on something that “happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it.”http://www.cnn.com/2010/US/01/13/haiti.pat.robertson/index.html Whisky Tango Foxtrot. WTF in layman terms.
Perhaps the pact wasn’t with the devil, but the Haitian government has sealed a deal with saints and sinners alike in 2010.
Magnetometer + GPS + accelerometer == device that knows exactly where it is and where it is pointed. So, augmented reality, here we come. via http://blog.cleverelephant.ca/2009/05/iphone-w-magnetometer.html

US Threatens Venezuela. Netherlands has Granted US Military Use of its Islands in the Caribbean

In a message dated 1/15/2010 3:03:11 AM US Mountain Standard Time, hannajaeckel@ msn.com writes
I wish I remembered which newscast in fact did show and mention, which countries already had sent assistance/supplies , which had landed in Port au Prince - it was either CBS, NBC or PBS' World Focus, but breaking with narcissistic tradition crates from Cuba, Venezuela and Iceland, were shown and mentioned as being first arrivals. I also noticed that Chinese with dogs were already climbing around on the rubble - their nationality was not mentioned and they cut away from that clip to show K9 units in the US getting ready to deploy to Haiti - psychologically trying to tie the two together. If you weren't quick, you'd have missed one quick frame in the video clearly showing an Asian face, otherwise it was just a bunch of people in orange jumpsuits - could be from anywhere.
Then Obama "generously" dedicated $100M (wonder what strings were attached to that - if these monies ever materialize) and promised that the IMF AND THE WORLD BANK would be right behind - lucky, lucky Haitians (sarcasm). They will end up being tenants in what used to be their country - every single piece of infrastructure belonging to "investors" of the One World Government. This is criminal, if you ask me!
Of course then there were clips of the AIRCRAFT CARRIER, which the USA is sending to Haiti????? Seems to anybody with a reasoning brain that a hospital ship would be more appropriate, seeing that there were news clips of medical personnel operating and helping people in fields in Haiti! One can only wish and dream ... that the Haitians tell the US aircraft carrier to stand offshore in international waters like the Indonesians told them to do during the tsunami rescue. Told the Americans to fly their choppers off the carrier and land them in Aceh and put them under Indonesian gov't control, otherwise they could just go home. Unfortunately, Haiti is so impoverished that they probably cannot turn away ANY help and their government seems to have evaporated - nowhere to be found ... at least that is how it appears from the absurd US MSM coverage.
That aircraft carrier really is sticking in my craw - if the pretense is to bring choppers to Haiti - why don't they just fly them there from the bases on Puerto Rico and the Netherlands Antilles - it's less than a couple of hours flight from there? And didn't they learn anything from the debacle with Indonesia after the Tsunami? Personally, I think, I will keep my eyes peeled on Haiti to see, if they don't magically sprout an American military base, when all is said and done.

Subject: Fw: HAITI: Behind the Curtain!!!
It never ceases to amaze me that when the newest crisis or war (conflict) hits - American's are woefully ignorant of the geographical location - culture or history of whomever the people are.
We have hundreds of thousands off to Iraq- Afghanistan who know zero about the lands/people they are being sent to kill. Haiti - the first thing this am we had Pat Robertson (TV mega evangelist) speaking of the Curse on Haiti - due to their pact with the devil - back in 1791 (Slave uprising - against the French).
True enough - the leaders of this uprising, one of them a Voodoo priest (maroon - priest, Bouchman) held a ceremony in the Alligator Woods. Nevetheless - in the midst of this massive crisis (death) it is hardly the time to drag up curses and Haiti bringing this upon themselves.
There are some VERY enlightening articles (please read to be informed) on Haiti. The Devil - ha, the Devil in this country's horrific poverty (do read article below on IMF! -others), is the International Monetary Fund - Haiti back in the 80s was a self sustaining economy - this is until the IMF stepped in/ in entered Western corporations and their slave wage factories - rice farmers were put out of business due to the deluge of western rice dumped in this country. Same thing with Mexico - Central, South America per FTAA (just one of the dozens of trade treaties passed - never read).
Oh, there was a huge demonstration in Miami a few years back --the TV media didn't see it as 'news', that the Miami police force, was outfitted ( $8 million bucks) with spiffy Ninja outfits to beat and gas and stomp (seniors - students - housewives - workers) peacefully marching/ protesting ALL the jobs leaving America. Oh and the eight million?
That was MONEY meant for our troops - for equipment to protect them!!!
Haiti is but an example of all these impoverished countries and how they've been brought to starvation - Haiti was the first to walk out on the Cap and Trade (tax) heist.
They along with the other 3rd world countries knew that this was the final NAIL in their coffins. Sad eh - we know about the Balloon Boy - the cliff hanging worries, of what Jay Leno - is going to do --the list of tramps that Tiger has bedded -Marie Osmond's weight loss/ Limbaugh the moronic fool (you would be in jail forever if caught with the stash of drugs he had in his home) has (below) the audacity to mock Haiti in their lack of producing anything worthwhile /
Note he didn't point out his Corporate Puppet Masters as the reason!! JM
Help Haiti: The Unforgiven Country Cries Out
FLASHBACK - Mixed U.S. Signals Helped Tilt Haiti Toward Chaos
Thirty years ago Haiti supplied nearly all its own food, including rice and sugar. But in 1986, when it went to the International Monetary Fund for emergency money after the regime of Jean-Claude Duvalier collapsed under mass pressure and a U.S. plane flew him to the French Riviera, the IMF insisted Haiti open its markets to foreign rice.
Since the late 1980s, through a cycle of coups, economic pressure and enticements, along with free food from time to time amply distributed by all sorts of NGOs, the market for food produced in Haiti has been destroyed.

Taking a careful look at the map of the shocks, I think we are seeing a "slow rupture" in that most of the aftershocks are trending towards the west towards Les Cayes. So the fault is continuing to rupture, slowly, in small moves, but this means there could easily be another major quake west of the original shock in the coming days.And of course they felt this at Guantanamo.

Fast Food, Fast Capitalism, Fast Politics --The Rec Report By Michael Rectenwald, Ph.D. 14 Jan 2010 Fast capitalism also includes the military and intelligence industry whose production is destruction, detention, political intervention, and ultimately the illegitimate appropriation of geo-political assets. The crisis of capitalism - fast capitalism - and not the mostly empty threat of terrorism - accounts for the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and soon possibly, Yemen. Diminishing returns on capital and fast capitalism's need to acquire assets using tax payer money and thus at low investor cost leads to wars. This is capitalism's natural tendency toward imperialism. Likewise, instead of ending, these wars have been intensified and extended under a new administration, regardless of fast promises.

Major Antarctic glacier is 'past its tipping point' 13 Jan 2010 A major Antarctic glacier has passed its tipping point, according to a new modelling study. After losing increasing amounts of ice over the past decades, it is poised to collapse in a catastrophe that could raise global sea levels by 24 centimetres. Pine Island glacier (PIG) is one of many at the fringes of the West Antarctic ice sheet.

The Battle for the American Soul is Over and Jay Leno Won
By Joe Bageant
Some 300 million Americans fancy themselves as middle class, chiefly because they: (A) own microwaves and a car with plastic bumpers; and (B) live in perpetual hock to MasterCard and Visa.

A Time to Break Silence
This is a must read/listen By Rev. Martin Luther King
I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a "thing-oriented" society to a "person-oriented" society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.
