March 2 2012

March 2nd is a day that some of us have been looking at with concern.
There might be a plot to try and start a war with Iran on March 2nd.
If there is, know that it is contrived and false, and that another war is unacceptable.

  1. The AP reports that during the last set of meetings the Israelis defiantly told the U.S. that if they attacked Iran, they would leave the U.S. in the dark. Here’s how Mike Rogers, the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee put it:
  2. Rogers told CNN on Monday: “I got the sense that Israel is incredibly serious about a strike on their nuclear weapons program. It’s their calculus that the administration … is not serious about a real military consequence to Iran moving forward.
  3. “They believe they’re going to have to make a decision on their own, given the current posture of the United States,” he added.
  4. Now, Israel’s two top leaders head to Washington for separate sets of talks in the coming days. Bibi comes for his annual triumphal curtain call before the Aipac national conference. There he will certainly repeat his baleful predictions of what a world with Iranian nukes would be like. It could be his last speech in this country before an Israeli attack.
  5. "It's unprecedented outreach to Israel to make sure we are working together to develop the plan to deter Iran from developing a nuclear weapon," and to keep Iran from exporting terrorism, said Maryland Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee.

Iran Again Asks For Nuclear Talks With UN

February 28, 2012

With international tensions running high over its controversial nuclear program, Iran on Tuesday repeated assertions that it wants talks with the United Nations nuclear watchdog agency.

"We are optimistic," Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said, "that upcoming meetings between the high delegation of the [U.N.] and the Iranian [side] will be proceeding hopefully in the right direction."

Salehi's comments in Geneva come after the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency said last week it has "major differences" and "major concerns" with Iran over its nuclear program and possible weapons development.

U.N. inspectors said that a visit to Tehran, aimed at gaining greater access to key nuclear sites and scientists, ended in failure.

Iran, which claims to have peaceful nuclear ambitions, has made numerous statements indicating it is ready for international dialogue but has put conditions on possible talks.

Israel and Western powers accuse Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons under cover of a civilian energy program, a charge Tehran denies.

Google YouTube Television

Google plans to launch TV service via Google Fiber
Siddharth Samanta
February 23, 2012

Google Fiber, a subsidiary of Google, has filed applications in Missouri and Kansas to operate a video/TV service. The news follows reports that Google is currently laying down the foundation of its ultra-fast 1 GB/s broadband connection in the same city, leading to speculation that this new video service -- which may compete with cable companies -- will piggyback Google Fiber.

"We're still exploring what products will be available when we launch Google Fiber," Google spokeswoman Jenna Wandres said in an email. The internet service is expected to launch at least in one unspecified neighborhood sometime early this summer, and so far Google hasn't actually stated what types of products it will package with the new Internet connection.

In the Kansas application, Google reportedly said it will "utilize national and regional video headend facilities (programming collection points) to send IPTV (internet-based television) across a private (internet protocol) network to subscribers." The application was filed on Friday with both the Kansas Corporation Commission and the Missouri Public Service Commission.

Last year news reports suggested that Google was in talks with Disney, Time Warner and Discovery about distributing their content. There were also claims that Google filed an application with the FCC to establish commercial-scale satellite dishes at a factory in Council Bluffs, Iowa, a place that already plays host to a Google data center. Like cable companies, these could be used as an "antenna farm" which capture video signals and transform them into channels for consumer use.

"The company has also been testing Wi-Fi transmitters from the home that could move data at the same gigabit speeds as its fiber optic cables - suggesting a holistic system for blanketing homes with Internet service 100 to 1,000 times quicker than the U.S. average," the paper reports.

There’s indication that Google's data center in Council Bluffs will become one giant DVR for those Kansas City residents subscribing to Google's TV service. The search engine giant is supposedly working to create a Cloud TV service, replacing DVRs and TiVo set top boxes. Google Fiber can make this happen, as its 1 GB/s speed will make retrieving all that stored video manageable as multiple televisions in hundreds of homes within a single neighborhood stream all that video at the same time.

"We could call this the 'YouTubization' of linear TV," said Bernstein Research in a report. "Expect Google to store (and make available to consumers) the content across all or most TV channels it will provide ... Storing the content of hundreds of TV channels for days, weeks or longer and serving them on-demand to individual users requires large amounts of storage and processing capacity. Of course, this is only possible if homes are connected to the cloud through very high-speed connections."

Would a Google TV service be a welcome addition to your town? For many consumers, an alternative could be a welcome sight, providing a local choice other than Time Warner, Comcast or whomever else is currently monopolizing the local area.



Mass Banker Resignations

There has been a lot of chatter lately about behind the scene arrests. Not much has transpired into the media since, but now it seems that as of this month, it is starting to show. Though not in the form of arrests, the resignations mean much because most of these people are the engineer of the financial/economic section of the Elite structure. It is true that the major player are still freely walking Earth, but now it feels like their time is soon to be up.

1 World Bank CEO Zoellick resigns.

2 Anz Bank CFO Australia resigns

3 Nicaraqua Central Bank Pres Rosales resigns

4 Credit Suisse Chief Joseph Tan resigns

5 GERMAN PRESIDENT Christian Ruff resigns

6 Royal Bank of Scotland Austrailin CEO Stephen Williams resigns

7 Kuwait Central Bank CEO resigns

8 Slovenia TWO largest Banks CEO's (2) resign

9 Bank of India CEO Chaturvedi resigns

10 Tamilnad Mercantile Bank CEO resigns

Then there are the rumors of Goldman Sachs CEO resigning, though I haven't been able to confirm this. http://finance.fortune.cnn.com/2012/02/17/gary-cohn-goldman-sachs/

Arrests of seven people Thursday accused of involvement in the $1.7 billion accounting scandal at Olympus, including the company’s former chairman and executive vice president, point to a widening investigation into a cover-up ostensibly carried out by top management with the help of a group of former bankers.

Arrests made in Italy after discovery of $6 trillion in fake U.S. bonds
No, they weren't fake bonds. You don't fake 6 trillions, then sell them to some investor and get away alive with it. It just doesn't happen this way, you sell 6 trillion fake bonds and you won't even last a day. No one will buy 6 trillion fake bonds, because when you make such a purchase, you make sure it is not faked. So partial disclosure by the media? Yes, I think.

Drones Over America

Tribesmen stage sit-in outside parliament against drone hits

ISLAMABAD: Hundreds of tribesmen on Saturday started a two-day sit-in outside the parliament against US drone attacks.

A majority of protesting tribesmen belong to North Waziristan and they were reinforced by workers of various political parties including PML-Q, JI, PTI, and JUI-F as well as activists of human rights NGOs.

Carrying banners inscribed with anti-US slogans, protesters gathered in D-Square outside the parliament. They shouted slogans including ‘friend of America is treacherous’. “We have arrived in Islamabad to convey our resentments and sentiments to the Pakistani authorities and the world against drone strikes,” said a tribesman who had lost his son in one of US drone attacks.

Pressure builds for civilian drone flights at home

Customs and Border Patrol has nine Predator drones mostly in use on the U.S.-Mexico border, and plans to expand to 24 by 2016.

Drones overhead could invade people's privacy. The government worries they could collide with passenger planes or come crashing down to the ground, concerns that have slowed more widespread adoption of the technology.

Despite that, pressure is building to give drones the same access as manned aircraft to the sky at home.

"It's going to be the next big revolution in aviation. It's coming," says Dan Elwell, the Aerospace Industries Association's vice president for civil aviation.

No Having Fun

LA County OKs Hefty Fine For Throwing Football, Frisbee On Beaches

VIDEO - http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2012/02/08/la-county-oks-1000-fine-for-throwing-football-frisbee-on-beaches/

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — When you head down to the beach for a little fun this summer, county officials want you to leave the pigskin at home.

The Board of Supervisors this week agreed to raise fines for anyone who throws a football or a Frisbee on any beach in Los Angeles County.

In passing the 37-page ordinance on Tuesday, officials sought to outline responsibilities for law enforcement and other public agencies while also providing clarification on beach-goer activities that could potentially disrupt or even injure the public.

According to Lucy Kim, from the LA County Department of Beaches and Harbors, a first-time offender will have to pay a $100 fine. For a second offense, beach-goers will face a $200 fine. Three or more infractions within one year will result in a $500 fine, Kim said.

The updated rules now prohibit “any person to cast, toss, throw, kick or roll” any object other than a beach ball or volleyball “upon or over any beach” between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Exceptions allow for ball-throwing in predesignated areas, when a person obtains a permit, or playing water polo “in or over the Pacific Ocean”.

However, during the winter off-season, the new rules will be relaxed.

Officials warned that any activities that could potentially harm “any person or property on or near the beach” should not be allowed during the peak summer season.

Your kids could also end up costing you big bucks: the ordinance also prohibits digging any hole deeper than 18 inches into the sand except where permission is granted for film and TV production services only.

Jobless America 2012

Today, the number of American adults that can't take care of themselves is at an all-time record high. So what are we going to do if the number of people dependent on the government keeps going up? Some folks like to point out that most Americans that have recently become dependent on the government would rather be working, but because of a lack of jobs they have gotten into a position where they cannot take care of themselves anymore. Some other folks like to point out that the number of Americans that abuse the system and that enjoy being dependent on the government is steadily increasing. Sadly, both of those positions are true. It is a fact that the percentage of working age Americans that actually have jobs has declined dramatically over the past several years because of a lack of jobs. It is also a fact that a growing percentage of Americans believe that it is the job of the government to take care of them from the cradle to the grave. What people need to understand is that the government is the problem and not the solution. We desperately need more jobs in this country, but the federal government has been absolutely killing job growth, it has been creating a culture of government dependency, and it has been going into gigantic amounts of debt trying to take care of so many people. So what are we going to do if the number of American adults that can't take care of themselves continues to set new records year after year?

Of course most Americans that are dependent on the government are not actually trying to abuse the system. Most are in that situation because they cannot find a decent job.

As you can see from the chart below, in the post-World War II era whenever a recession has ended the percentage of working age Americans that have jobs has rebounded substantially. But this has not happened this time....

The employment-population ratio fell to levels not seen since the early 1980s and has stayed there.

During the 70s, 80s and 90s the employment-population ratio kept increasing because a lot of women were entering the workforce.

But now our economy is not producing nearly enough jobs for everyone. Our economy is dying and the labor market has come to resemble a really bizarre game of musical chairs.

If you lose your job in this economy, you might be out of the game for good.

If you can believe it, today there are 100 million working age Americans that do not have jobs.

In all, there are 242 million working age Americans.

Only 142 million of them actually have jobs.

The rest are either taken care of by someone else in their family or by the government.

Since the year 2000, the U.S. population has increased by over 30 million.

But the number of Americans that have jobs has only risen by 4.7 million.

Something doesn't add up.

The federal government keeps telling us that the employment situation is getting better, but the only way they can do that is by pretending that millions of Americans are "leaving the labor force".

Between 2000 and 2011, the federal government says that the number of Americans "not in the labor force" rose by 17.9 million.

But during the entire decade of the 1980s the number of Americans "not in the labor force" rose by only 1.7 million.

Yes, there is something really fishy going on with the employment numbers.

And the percentage of the "working poor" in America has been steadily rising as well.

Back in 1980, less than 30% of all jobs in the United States were low income jobs. Today, more than 40% of all jobs in the United States are low income jobs.

Millions upon millions of Americans that actually do have jobs are still not able to take care of themselves and are dependent on the government.

If something is not done to reverse these labor trends, the number of American adults that can't take care of themselves is going to continue to set new records.

Today, over 70 percent of all spending by the federal government goes into dependence programs, and the amount of money that the federal government sends directly to American citizens has increased by 32 percent since Barack Obama took office.

Just about every measure of government dependence that is out there is going up rapidly. Just consider the following stats....

*Federal housing assistance increased by a whopping 42 percent between 2006 and 2010.

*Medicare spending increased by 138 percent between 1999 and 2010.

*Back in 1965, only one out of every 50 Americans was on Medicaid. Today, one out of every 6 Americans is on Medicaid, and things are about to get a whole lot worse. It is being projected that Obamacare will add 16 million more Americans to the Medicaid rolls.

*Back in 1990, the federal government accounted for 32 percent of all health care spending in America. Today, that figure is up to 45 percent and it is projected to surpass 50 percent very shortly.

*By the end of 2011, approximately 55 million Americans received a total of approximately 727 billion dollars in Social Security benefits. As the retirement crisis becomes much worse, that dollar figure is projected to absolutely skyrocket.

*The number of Americans on food stamps recently set a new all-time record. Right now, more than one out of every seven American citizens is on food stamps and one out of every four U.S. children is on food stamps. The number of Americans on food stamps has risen by more than 14 million since Barack Obama first entered the White House.

*According to the Heritage Foundation, more than 91 million Americans are financially dependent on the federal government at this point.

*According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 49 percent of all Americans live in a home that receives direct monetary benefits from the federal government. Back in 1983, less than a third of all Americans lived in a home that received direct monetary benefits from the federal government.

*When you total it all up, American households are now receiving more money directly from the federal government than they are paying to the government in taxes.

As you can see, the number of Americans that are receiving goodies from the federal government is rapidly increasing.

Meanwhile, the number of Americans that are working good jobs and paying taxes to support these programs has been going down.

If this continues, at some point the safety net will break.

And we need a safety net. There are always going to be some people who do not have the capacity to take care of themselves. We certainly don't want to see anyone sleeping in the streets or starving to death.

But the tens of millions of additional Americans that have jumped on to the safety net in recent years are endangering the entire system. Our country is rapidly going broke and if the entire safety net collapses those that really need the help are not going to be able to get it.

In the end, what we really need in this country are tens of millions of additional good jobs. But our politicians continue to pass mountains of job killing new laws, and our big corporations continue to ship millions of our jobs out of the country.

If we stay on this road, the number of Americans that can't take care of themselves is going to keep setting new records every single year.

And for the rest of us, let us never look down on those that are dependent on the government. The truth is that the vast majority of us are just a few really bad breaks away from losing everything.


DHS Implementing No Work List: Citizens Must Get Government Approval to Work in Private Sector Jobs

December 16, 2010

You’ve heard of no fly and no buy lists – get ready for no work lists. Millions of workers now must apply to the DHS and prove they are not terrorists in order to be granted permission by the government to work.

On the Alex Jones Show today, a caller pointed to information posted on a union website for ironworkers spelling out details on the Department of Homeland Security’s TWIC and SWAC programs.

TWIC is short for Transportation Worker Identification Credential and SWAC stands for Secure Worker Access Consortium.

TWIC “is a biometric credential that ensures only vetted workers are eligible to enter a secure construction site, unescorted,” Ironworkers Local 361 in Ozone Park, New York, explains. “Before issuing a TWIC, TSA must conduct a security threat assessment on the TWIC applicant. An applicant who, as a result of the assessment, is determined to not pose a security threat, will be issued a TWIC card.”

In other words, construction workers in New York will need permission from the TSA and DHS in order to practice their profession and earn a living. It was much the same in the former Soviet Union and authoritarian states such as China where the government determines all aspects of an individual’s life and where even the mildly rebellious are severely punished.

SWAC is even more draconian. It is “a large-scale collaborative effort among public and private authorities, facility owners, contractors, and labor organizations who are partnering to prevent terrorist activity by creating a trusted contractor community. Over 500 organizations, including the Port Authority of NY and NJ, which manages and maintains the bridges, tunnels, bus terminals, airports, PATH, and seaports that are essential to the bi-state region’s trade and transportation capabilities, have joined this effort,” according to the union website.

SWAC also requires a background investigation by the government, so if construction, port workers, longshoremen, and truck drivers are involved in political activity frowned upon by the feds – for instance, 9/11 truth, considered dangerous and subversive by the State Department – it is likely they will have to find another line of work.

Strange Sounds Update



We have analyzed records of these sounds and found that most of their spectrum lies within the infrasound range, i.e. is not audible to humans. What people hear is only a small fraction of the actual power of these sounds. They are low-frequency acoustic emissions in the range between 20 and 100 Hz modulated by ultra-low infrasonic waves from 0.1 to 15 Hz. In geophysics, they are called acoustic-gravity waves; they are formed in the upper atmosphere, at the atmosphere-ionosphere boundary in particular. There can be quite a lot of causes why those waves are generated: earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, storms, tsunamis, etc. However, the scale of the observed humming sound in terms of both the area covered and its power far exceeds those that can be generated by the above-mentioned phenomena.

Otherwise, the strange sounds may be some form of control.

John Goodman explains the use of old Firehouse Sirens to freak people out.

"Strange Sounds" DEBUNKED and EXPLAINED

"Strange Sounds" around the world explained. (HAARP? Project Bluebeam? Pole Shift? WRONG!)

Though nobody knows for sure still, some are convinced because of the amount of sounds in the large number of places around the world. Is it coincidence, or perhaps we have never noticed these sounds before? They may be electromagnetic, or techtonic, or otherwise. Perhaps a call like the noise the aliens make in War of the Worlds, or perhaps its just a call for us to look up in curiosity. Is someone trying to get our attention? Or someone just playing tricks?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgGFThlEeGE&feature=related I dont think its a hoax too many reporting these sounds...
