When (internet) "LUV" Come to Town

When Internet "LUV" Comes to Town: Vulnerable People Who Need People
by MNN
We've come to realize that this whole "love" scamming business on the internet is being studied and schemed by agents of the elite thugs.  One category is the "player" and the "target." 
 
"Players" are predators of other human beings. They operate from their own unwritten "con manual" on how to carefully "profile" their targets, move in and get what they want. Intelligence agencies have scientifically studied this and converted it into internet relationships which lead to a map of how to subvert individuals and communities. The players have determined that there are basic personality types and traits of the targets, along with age, physical appearance, ethnicity, culture, income, etc.  From this a player develops models of their targets, how they can play them and how they are likely to behave. 
 
A player learns how to spot these people when he enters a room like a bar or an internet "chat room".   We are not denying that genuine relationships have developed on the net.

Awful Gwen: Pre-emptive Attacks on Press Debate Moderator

The Ifill Factor
by Scott Horton
The recent debate at Washington University in Saint Louis between Senator Joe Biden and Governor Sarah Palin was the most watched vice presidential debate of all time. Polling and pundits seem to have settled on a consensus view, namely that the debate was a clear win for Senator Biden on points and persuasion. But Governor Palin gets an important consolation prize in that she outperformed the historically low expectations for her, expectations set by a series of gaffes and misfires in handling questions, particularly in interviews conducted by CBS News’s Katie Couric.
 
None of that is particularly surprising. What really merits scrutiny in my mind are the tactics employed by the McCain campaign going into this debate. As Ken Silverstein noted in the days just before the debate, McCain operatives claimed to have made a “shocking discovery.”
 
Ifill was about to publish a book entitled The Breakthrough that discusses Barack Obama, and a number of other black politicians, achieving national prominence in the last few years. (One of them, Alabama’s Artur Davis, has been profiled in this space recently.)

Animal Planet Follows Sea Shepherd Crew to the Bottom of the World

Animal Planet Follows Sea Shepherd Crew to the Bottom of the World
by Sea Shepherd Society 
We are excited to announce a new show on Animal Planet which covers last year's Antarctic Whale Campaign, Operation Migaloo, during which Sea Shepherd saved over 500 whales from the whaler's harpoons.

This weekly series comprising seven one-hour episodes follows the crew of the Sea Shepherd vessel, Steve Irwin as they use non-violent direct action techniques that garner world wide media attention in an effort to shut down the illegal Japanese whaling fleet and enforce international conservation law.

Spying on the Future

Spying on the Future: The U.S. Intelligence Community as Seers Without Sizzle
by Tom Engelhardt
The year is 2010 and, yes, Saddam Hussein is gone and there are no American troops in Iraq, but, as the report suggests, "the challenge will be to see whether a modern, secular successor government emerges that does not threaten its neighbors" -- especially since those dogged Iraqis are back at work on their nuclear weapons program.
 
 
Meanwhile, the national security agenda of American policymakers, who face no conventional military challenges, is dominated by five questions: "whether to intervene, when, with whom, with what tools, and to what end?"

Feeling Fear from an Old Tax Musket: An Open Letter to the US Congress

An Assassination Bailout Plan for the United States?       
by Christopher Ketcham    
Dear Sirs/Madams: You in the corporate execugarchy in this country have forgotten the shape and name of fear – and yes I mean you, dear congressmen, whose work has gone hand in hand with big money for too long, running amok in the sea lanes of American society, piratical, parasitic, treasure-troved, flying the black flag and raiding what the rest of us offer up in the tax season or are imbecilic enough to invest on Wall Street.
 
So let us, as citizens intelligent and discerning, now be raised in answer to this latest monumental predation – the treasonous Bailout of ‘08 – visited from you, the criminals in the nice suits.

Expanding Canada's Detainee Probe

Request for Expansion of Detainee Probe
by John McNamer
The Military Police Complaints Commission has been asked to expand its upcoming probe into the transfer of detainees by Canadian Forces to Afghan authorities despite evidence the detainees might be tortured.
 
 
Decorated military veteran John McNamer of Kamloops has formally requested that the public hearing, which was recently set for later this fall, include the transfer of detainees by Canadian Forces to U.S. authorities as well.
 
His letter provided 'substantial' evidence to demonstrate that prisoners in U.S. custody have been and continue to be subjected to the possibility of torture and death.

Brute Force, The Power to Hurt, and Psychological Control

Deconstructing the Power of the Global Elite: Brute Force, The Power to Hurt, and Psychological Control
by Judith H. Young, Ph.D.
In the aftermath of Congressional approval of bailout legislation granting sweeping powers to the  financial elite, the body politic appears to be helplessly mired in the relentless unfolding of classical fascism before its very eyes. 
 
Coming to terms with this terrifying predicament can benefit from a primer that renders naked the forms of raw power used by the global elite in advancing its agenda for full spectrum dominance. This will enable us to determine if we are in fact helpless and to use care and deliberation in finding the means to take our power back.

Bailout Bill's Bluff, Bluster and B.S.

Why Bluff Martial Law?
by Zahir Ebrahim
The fear-mongering that many Congressmen in their House Floor-Speeches had alluded to, including the explicit threat of Martial Law in America noted by Representative Brad Sherman, D-CA, and Martial Law already instituted in Congress to squelch debate and due process as alluded to by Representative Michael Burgess, R-Texas, really cemented the signing of this Bill today.

Under these circumstances, Grand Theft America has been initiated. Project Humanbeingsfirst wrote a letter to the United States Congress yesterday, on October 02, 2008, suggesting to open a second more powerful front to disarm them.

Presidential Candidate McKinney Charges 5,000 "Prisoners" Executed in Wake of Katrina

Presidential Candidate McKinney Charges 5,000 "Prisoners" Executed in Wake of Katrina
by C. L. Cook
Former Democratic party House representative, and current Green Party candidate for president, Cynthia McKinney at a recent press conference charged mass executions of "prisoners" occurred in Louisiana in the wake of hurricane Katrina in 2005. 
 
 
 
The source of McKinney's allegation was purportedly a woman whose son was assigned the grim task of disposing of the bodies of thousands of men who all received a single gunshot to the head. Both the man involved and his mother wish to remain anonymous, the man saying he was forced to sign a confidentiality agreement.
