How President Obama Could Take On and Defeat the Zionist Lobby

Those in Congress who insist that Iran poses a threat to Israel's existence are recycling Zionist propaganda nonsense.

(LONDON) - President ObamaA longer version of my headline would be this: How President Obama could take on and defeat the Zionist lobby and secure for himself the freedom to put America's own best interests first in the Middle East and wider Muslim.

In the course of a prime time address to his fellow Americans, Obama could do it with just one sentence. This one: "To our Jewish citizens I have to say the time has come for you to decide whether you are Americans first or not."
More on that in a moment.

As many as 1.5 million were murdered at Auschwitz, mainly Polish Jews, but also Soviet prisoners-of-war, Gypsies, Czechs, Yugoslavs, French, Austrians, and Germans.

Fully Disclose 9/11 Report

"Omission is the most powerful form of a lie." - George Orwell

(Saint James, MO.) - 911 report rejectedDear Editor:
The real issue we Americans should pay attention to in upcoming weeks is the on-going effort yet again underway in Congress that is being driven by various politicians of both political parties to disclose the redacted 28 pages of the 9/11 Report that still remain classified. At the very least, doing so might provide some form of closure and relief for the families of 9/11 victims.

Further, the full disclosure may possibly open the door for more robust probing into what really happened on 9/11 and why.

When They Kill Journalists - Lasantha Wickrematunge; Six Years On

“I was surprised to see that this day (January 8th) was chosen for the presidential election, as the present administration is suspected to be behind the murder, and have done nothing to solve it.”- Johan Mikaelsson, author

(LOS ANGELES) - LASANTHA MANILAL WICKREMATUNGESix years ago in 2009, on a day like today (January 8th) was when I received the most dreadful phone call of my entire life, thus far.

At the time, I was residing off-Attidiya Road in Dehiwela, when a close friend living in Kalubowila rang me, and stated that Lasantha had been attacked a few minutes ago. That was all I recall hearing from the other end; it indeed was a brief phone call, yet, at the same time, I went completely blank with the malicious news that my ears did not want to perceive, and my heart did not want to accept.

EBOLA! EBOLA! EBOLA!

Exclusive interview with Dr. Phil Leveque, Forensic Toxicologist and Pharmacologist, on the Ebola Epidemic.

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Ebola epidemicIt spreads very easily. An infected person doesn't need to touch you, or have you touch them; nor sneeze on you, or have sex with you. It’s their aura, the infected person’s atmosphere around them carries the moisture-born Ebola virus, their own contaminated body fluids. Yes, their sweat evaporating into the air around them is infected, and contagious.

Because of the virulence of this stuff, it doesn't act like measles or small pox or anything like that, something far, far worse. You can’t say that this is from person-to-person contact; it’s just not possible that it can be that way.

Children of a Lesser God?

Founder of the Zionist movement, Theodor Herzl and many of his followers were atheists, perhaps using the Bible and God as justification to steal other people’s land.

(LONDON) - Jewish stateThere is a thought that has been brewing in my head since the latest massacre in Gaza and what followed. How to define a relationship between two peoples who live on the same piece of land but are, in terms of cultural, religious and political affiliations, oceans apart.

In this article I shall try to define the relationship between religion, race and democracy in Palestine. In particular when it comes to the relationship and sense of entitlement that many Zionist Jews have with Palestine.

Follow The Sand To The Real Fracking Boom

The frac sand business is a huge element of the US oil boom but one that very few investors know anything about.

(LONDON / Oilprice.com) - frac sandWhen it takes up to four million pounds of sand to frack a single well, it’s no wonder that demand is outpacing supply and frack sand producers are becoming the biggest behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the American oil and gas boom.

Demand is exploding for “frac sand”--a durable, high-purity quartz sand used to help produce petroleum fluids and prop up man-made fractures in shale rock formations through which oil and gas flows—turning this segment into the top driver of value in the shale revolution.
