John Wheeler Murdered After Arkansas Weapons’ Test Causes Mass Bird and Fish Deaths

January 19, 2011 Comments off

A shocking report prepared for Prime Minister Putin by the Foreign Military Intelligence Directorate (GRU) states that one of the United States top experts in biological and chemical weapons was brutally murdered after he threatened to expose a US Military test of poison gas that killed hundreds of thousands of animals in Arkansas this past week.

According to this report, John P. Wheeler III, Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force, Washington, D.C. from 2005-2008, when he became the Special Assistant to the Acting Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, Logistics and Environment, was found brutally murdered and dumped in a landfill, and as we can read as reported by Fox News:

“Delaware Police are investigating the apparent murder of a former Bush official who also championed the fund-raising effort to build the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the Mall in Washington, D.C. Wheeler’s body was found in Wilmington on Friday.

According to police, somebody initially reported that the body was dumped out of a refuse truck, which would have been coming from Newark, onto the landfill. Newark Police spokesman Lt. Mark Farrall told Fox News that nobody had reported Wheeler missing before he was found.

The Wilmington News Journal reported that Wheeler was last seen riding an Amtrak train from Washington to Wilmington, Del., last Tuesday.”

Tremors from a powerful earthquake that rattled many parts of Pakistan early Wednesday were felt as far as New Delhi, 700 miles away.

The 7.2 magnitude quake hit in a sparsely-populated area near the nation’s borders with Iran and Afghanistan, 640 miles west-southwest of Islamabad, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

No fatalities have been reported.

Officials in Karen, a town in a sparsely populated area close to the epicenter, told the Associated Press that the town suffered no widespread damage.

People came out of their houses in the southern city of Karachi, home to 18 million people, but no major damage was reported there either.

Tremors shook structures in many other parts of the country and were felt as far as Dubai in the Middle East.

The earthquake’s intensity was just below that of another earthquake measuring 7.6 that struck parts of northern Pakistan in 2005 and killed more than 70,000 people.

Government officials warned of the danger of aftershocks in coming days. In some instances such aftershocks have come within a week of previous earthquakes.

“It’s not uncommon for this region to have earthquakes. It is where two tectonic plates come together” CNN quoted Kurt Frankel of the Georgia Institute of Technology.

In Pakistan’s capital Islamabad a Western diplomat quoted by CBS News warned that further damage from the earthquake, notably any of its aftershocks, could seriously undermine Pakistan’s future, right at a time when the United States is urging the country to extend more cooperation in its campaign to fight militants.

“A humanitarian crisis in Pakistan caused by the earthquake will only undermine U.S. interests,” the  diplomat said. “As it is, we must all worry about instability in a country armed with nuclear weapons and with political and economic problems,” he added.

The Great American Decline

By Joseph G

Do you remember the 50’s 60’s and 70’s?  I don’t because I wasn’t even born then, however,  my parents and grand parents told me that those years were the golden years.  Inflation wasn’t that high then, so you could go out and purchase a hot dog, pop corn, soda and a movie all for a shiny quarter!  When you went to go to work or run errands you didn’t even lock your house front door as theft was not an issue at that time.  We Americans seemed like we were in pretty good shape as we had Detroit pumping out the latest cars and everyone had jobs but most of all we had each other as in strong family ties.  My dad used to say there was only one TV in the whole house  and there was such a time as “Family Time”  when all of the siblings and adults  get together in the living room and actually converse with one another without the distraction of electronics or television.  Everyone used to go to church and worship God as a family then come home to a large dinner composed of baked chicken, corn on the cob, greens, buttery dinner rolls with peach cobbler on the side.  There was a great sense of pride amongst families of all walks of life in those days.  But that was then, now lets fast forward a few decades.

You turn on the news and what do you see? 9 times out of 10 that news is bad news.  In this day and age where information is transferred in fractions of nano seconds, it appear as if things should be better right?  I mean we have laptops, 3D TV’s , cell phones, Ipads, Starbucks, and fast food joints, what could be possibly wrong with that?  It appears that our hard work has paid off during the middle of the century so now we can just kick back and reap the rewards.  In the face of our pride however we have created a beast.  Look around you it’s everywhere!  It’s physically inescapable as far as the eye can see and the nose to smell.  With the invention of  TV’s and ON-DEMAND no one wants go for a walk or even physically go to the movie theater.  Its Convenience 101.  The plethora of fast food is so tempting not only because of the taste of the inferior low quality food but for the ability upon demand you can order whatever you want and presto its on your plate.  What ever happened to actually cooking food with your own personal seasonings and spices like grandma used to make but oh you want it now and cooking just takes too long.  Remember when kids actually played with toys and dolls  instead of playing video games and watching Disney Channel all day?  Many kids now have a hard time being social with their peers due to long-term isolation.

QE2 Reality Check

January 19, 2011 Comments off

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) announced on November 3, 2010 that it would purchase longer-term Treasury securities at a pace of $75 billion dollars per month through the Federal Reserve’s Permanent Open Market Operations (POMO) facility by the end of the second quarter 2011 and potentially beyond. The Quantitative Easing Two (“QE2”) program, championed by Ben Bernanke, chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve, is expected to total at least $600 billion — and may well total more, if Bernanke and the FOMC deem it to be necessary.

Currently, QE2 is expected to continue until the end of 2011, i.e. up to $1.2 trillion, although there is ongoing policy debate within the Federal Reserve amidst growing fears that the policy may backfire.

Monetary inflation is one result of QE2 because when the Federal Reserve buys U.S. Treasuries it injects newly created money into the financial system which, in turn, reduces the value of the U.S. dollar (due to the increase in the quantity of dollars). A lower U.S. dollar could stimulate U.S. exports but could have unintended consequences, such as creating excess liquidity that could lead to asset price bubbles in the U.S. Read more…

Darwin’s theory of gradual evolution not supported by geological history, scientist concludes

January 19, 2011 Comments off
“Matthew discovered and clearly stated the idea of natural selection, applied it to the origin of species, and placed it in the context of a geologic record marked by catastrophic mass extinctions followed by relatively rapid adaptations,” says Rampino, whose research on catastrophic events includes studies on volcano eruptions and asteroid impacts. “In light of the recent acceptance of the importance of catastrophic mass extinctions in the history of life, it may be time to reconsider the evolutionary views of Patrick Matthew as much more in line with present ideas regarding biological evolution than the Darwin view.”
Matthew (1790-1874), Rampino notes, published a statement of the law of natural selection in a little-read Appendix to his 1831 book Naval Timber and Arboriculture. Even though both Darwin and his colleague Alfred Russel Wallace acknowledged that Matthew was the first to put forth the of natural selection, historians have attributed the unveiling of the theory to Darwin and Wallace. Darwin’s notebooks show that he arrived at the idea in 1838, and he composed an essay on natural selection as early as 1842—years after Matthew’s work appeared. Darwin and Wallace’s theory was formally presented in 1858 at a science society meeting in London. Darwin’s Origin of Species appeared a year later. Read more…

China’s covert spy pad technology

January 19, 2011 1 comment
spy padWatch your step — you might just be standing on a spy pad.

Chinese researchers have given new meaning to the term “watch your step” with a so-called “spy pad,” a device that can identify people by their gait, the South China Morning Post reported.

According to a Wikileaks document released in December, the device is able to capture the biometric information of anyone who steps on it, such as the dimension, weight and force applied by a person’s foot when they walk.

Developers believe these statistics are unique to each individual and can be used for identification. The spy pad’s sensors are so sensitive that they are supposedly able to track human targets even if they’ve changed shoes.

You’ve got to wonder why Ian Fleming didn’t think of it when he was writing the James Bond books. Or, for that matter, George Orwell when he was writing “1984.”

Acording to the SCMP report, spy pads were created by scientists at China’s IIM, or Institute of Intelligent Machines, reportedly in collaboration with developers at Nintendo, which may explain the device’s similarities with the Wii Fit Balance Board.

The Ministry for State Security, China’s spy agency, has already jumped on the project and is currently its biggest financier, according to the South China Morning Post.

Zhou Xu, a leading researcher on the project, is quoted by the Post as saying that “the government wants to use this device to track some citizens of concern.”

The gadget piqued the curiosity of U.S. diplomats in Beijing, who wrote in a diplomatic cable in February last year:

“The device can be covertly installed in a floor and is able to collect biometrics data on individuals covertly without their knowledge.

“When questioned about the device’s potential applications, IIM officials stated the device was being used by ‘secret’ customers and was not available on the commercial market.”

The Post reported that the gadget has been tested on the lab’s 100-odd employees and has an accuracy rate of 98 percent.

Word of the week “Plutocracy”

January 19, 2011 Comments off

Definition of PLUTOCRACY

: government by the wealthy
: a controlling class of the wealthy

Examples of PLUTOCRACY

  1. If only the wealthy can afford to run for public office, are we more a plutocracy than a democracy?
  2. corporate greed and America’s growing plutocracy

The term “plutocracy” is formally defined as government by the wealthy, and is also sometimes used to refer to a wealthy class that controls a government, often from behind the scenes. More generally, a plutocracy is any form of government in which the wealthy exercise the preponderance of political power, whether directly or indirectly.Plutocracy may also have social and cultural aspects. Thus, in Democracy for the Few political scientist Michael Parenti is led to comment “American capitalism represents more than just an economic system; it is an entire cultural and social order, a plutocracy, a system of rule that is mostly by and for the rich. Most universities and colleges, publishing houses, mass circulation magazines, newspapers, television and radio stations, professional sports teams, foundations, churches, private museums, charity organizations, and hospitals are organized as corporations, ruled by boards of trustees (or directors or regents) composed overwhelmingly of affluent businesspeople. These boards exercise final judgment over all institutional matters.”The question of whether or not the United States could be said to be a plutocracy is discussed at length in Who Rules America, by sociologist G. William Domhoff. There Domhoff remarks: “The idea that a relatively fixed group of privileged people might shape the economy and government for their own benefit goes against the American grain. Nevertheless . . . the owners and top-level managers in large income-producing properties are far and away the dominant power figures in the United States. Their corporations, banks, and agribusinesses come together as a corporate community that dominates the federal government in Washington. Their real estate, construction, and land development companies form growth coalitions that dominate most local governments.” In the US, plutocratic governance is abetted by mass media owned by the hyperwealthy and operated in their own economic self-interest, the failure to provide public financing to political candidates, poor oversight of the electoral process, elitist Supreme Court appointments, the organization of wealth into socially-irresponsible corporations, the collapse of meaningful regulatory regimes, plutocratically financed “think tanks” (propaganda distribution centers), and an impoverished educational system that has failed utterly to provide Americans with the elements of political literacy (all of which have their foundations in philosophy).

A Guide to the Open Internet Even You Can Understand

A Guide to the Open Internet

If you love your Internet, you should familiarize yourself with this guide to The Open Internet and the concepts of Network Neutrality. Network neutrality is the idea that your cellular, cable, or phone internet connection should treat all websites and services the same. Big companies like AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast want to treat them differently so they can charge you more depending on what you use.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is currently debating legislation to define limits for internet service providers (ISPs). The hope is that they will keep the internet open and prevent companies from discriminating against different kinds of websites and services.

This is important. You should learn what Net Neutrality is about and you should understand why it is important you care.
