Breaking Taboos In the Search For Truth

by Muriel Mirak-Weissbach

Global Research, February 7, 2008
The fact that the fifth grandson of legendary peace activist Mahatma Gandhi, should be forced to resign as head of his own peace institute in the United States, after critical remarks he had made about Israeli policy, should set alarm bells ringing — not one, but two sets of bells. On the one hand, his forced resignation seemed to confirm the fear that anyone in the United States who dared criticize Israeli policy as aggressive, would be dubbed a “bigot” or “anti-semite,” and forced to withdraw from public life. On the other hand, however, a different alarm has been sounded, one that warns that such blanket condemnation of any criticism of Israeli policy, will boomerang, and force an open, honest, no-holds-barred debate on a crucial political and moral issue. So, from this standpoint, I say, let the alarm bells ring.

Sibel Edmonds Must be Heard

Sibel Edmonds is the FBI translator turned whistleblower who decided to go public late in 2002 and has been seeking to tell her story about high level corruption in the United States government involving Turkey and Israel. What makes her story particularly compelling is that the corruption relates to the theft and sale of United States defense secrets, most particularly nuclear technology. Sibel obtained her information while translating Turkish language telephone intercepts directed against several Turkish lobbying groups who had contact with senior officials in the Bush Administration, both at the Pentagon and in the State Department. Many of the officials involved are apparently the same neoconservatives who cooked the books to enable the rush to war against Iraq and who are continuing to urge more wars in the Middle East, most notably against Iran and Syria. Several of them are close allies of leading Republican presidential candidate John McCain.

Willie Nelson stands up for Isaac Newton!

Willie Nelson stands up for Isaac Newton! Willie understand the laws of physics can’t be suspended for a day. That is what we were tricked into believing on September the Eleventh, 2001, that’s right, on 9/11. ::::::::

Willie Nelson stands up for Isaac Newton! Yes, Isaac Newton has taken quite a beating for nearly six and one-half years. Up until September the Eleventh of 2001, I think its safe to say, virtually everyone believed Isaac Newton knew what he had proven. Well, since 9/11, most people apparently believe Isaac has been “disproved” — except for, of course, Willie Nelson. Its nice to know that someone as patriotic as Willie Nelson also believes in science. Yes, that’s right, science. Now he’s not the only one mind you — there are Physicists, Patriots, Architectural Engineers, Pilots, people for 911Truth, and many others — that believe that Isaac Newton’s fundamental laws of the universe are still valid.

I doubt anyone will ever forget 9/11; but how many will ever realize that we were tricked into to believing that Isaac Newton’s fundamental laws of the universe were suspended that day? 9/11 was a powerful day, but not that powerful. No, the laws of physics have been in place since the beginning of time. I personally don’t see how a few Saudi Arabian hijackers and airplanes filled with kerosene, could have possibly crossed up Isaac Newton. Do you? It has been easily proven in many different ways that if the Official Story we have been told is really true, Mr. Isaac Newton should be extracted from all science books. But if we did that, how would we ever know how fast an apple really falls?

So it has to be Ron Paul.

I never thought I would say this but if the Americans have any sense they vote Ron Paul in.
I may not believe in his internal,
 freemarket or gun policies but his opinions on the Constitution and his non interventionist stance as well as his opinion about the Federal reserve make him the only candidate worth voting for now that Kutchinich has left the race. Let the chips fall were they may for the rest of his policies, but he may be the only way to salvation for the US of A. The poor man it is more likely to get him killed than voted in for his policies, but from here on in I endorse Ron Paul for president.

A Dormant Danger in the Dust

As time elapses, the fateful and devastating effects of the terrorist attacks that took place on September 11, 2001 continue to unfold. Countless hopes and dreams went down with the collapsing World Trade Center towers­—an intangible loss that can never be calculated or aptly assessed. However, a looming concern regarding the health effects of the aftermath continues to rise.When the World Trade Center (WTC) towers crumbled, a dust cloud containing more than 2,500 contaminants spread across the city—reaching as far as New Jersey. The toxic dust was composed of harmful elements such as construction debris, glass and other fibers, and poisonous compounds such as lead, mercury, and asbestos. Those living and working near the WTC and those who assisted in cleanup were gravely affected by this contaminated dust. Many of those exposed to the dust have experienced disquieting health issues, ranging from problems with breathing to various forms of cancer, the most common being lung cancer.

On January 6, 2008, the New York Post released the preliminary results of a study by the New York State Department of Health, which reported at least 204 rescue and recovery workers and volunteers have died since 9/11, falling victim to a range of cancers and other disorders. The lead researcher informed The Post that a total of 98 fatalities have been confirmed with death certificates. The research shows that 77 persons died of illnesses, including 55 deaths caused by lung and other cancers.

NY Lawmakers Shocked At Bush’s 77% Cut In 9/11 Health Funding

New York lawmakers in Washington who have been persistently pressing the White House for increased funding for healthcare programs for ailing 9/11 World Trade Center workers were jolted last week when President George W. Bush’s proposed budget slashed those programs by 77 percent.

Only last Wednesday, they pointed out, a White House spokesman had issued a statement that the president’s 2009 budget would “reflect his continued commitment” to WTC workers. In reality, the budget issued appropriated a paltry $25 million, down from $108 million in the present spending plan.

“This dramatic and unwarranted cut flies in the face of common sense, compassion and just plain fairness,” Senator Charles Schumer declared as he promised to “fight these cuts tooth and nail to ensure these heroes receive the health care they need and clearly deserve”.

9/11 widows call for new investigation after revelations of White House, commission ties

The widows whose political activism was largely responsible for the establishment of a commission to investigate the September 11 attacks say a new book revealing the backstory of the 9/11 Commission proves that their initial concerns about its executive director were correct and demonstrate the need for another investigation.Philip Shenon, who covered the proceedings for the New York Times, has written a new book, The Commission: The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Investigation, which was released Tuesday. The book reveals the close ties between commission executive director Philip Zelikow and White House advisers Karl Rove and Condoleezza Rice.

The Commission also reveals that aside from one staff member, no one on the 9/11 investigative panel reviewed what was perhaps the most robust treasure trove of pre-9/11 intelligence on al Qaeda — records from the National Security Agency, which conducts electronic surveillance and codebreaking for the US Intelligence Community.
