Faux News PsyOp: The Times Square Bomb Plot

Pakistani Taliban Claims Responsibility

Times Square Bomb Plot Revenge, Group Says (Fox News)

Evidently, a nice Jewish lady found a video on the Internet that she, and Fox News, believes establishes conclusive proof of a Taliban plot to bomb Times Square. One problem though, The Fox News report headline above (based on the lady’s claims) are deceptively misleading. Of course, one has to read a few lines into the article to find out that there is no specific mention of the attack, New York City, or a car bomb.

The woman who “discovered” the video, Rita Katz, is Executive Director of  SITE Intelligence Group. SITE is a for profit entity (Muslim terror scares = big bucks) started by Ms. Katz in 2002. Basically her job is to comb the Internet looking for evidence of  Islamic terror networks and jihadist propaganda. Ms. Katz also likes to dress up as a Muslim woman and sneak into mosques to expose radical Islamic groups.

Ms. Katz is the daughter of an Israeli spy who was tortured, convicted, and executed in Iraq soon after  Saddam Hussein seized power in 1968. She also had the distinction of serving in the Israeli Defense Forces (thus cementing her complete objectivity in uncovering Islamic terror shenanigans). After studying politics, history, and Middle Eastern affairs at Tel Aviv University, she moved to the U.S. in 1997. Now she valiantly scours the Internet in search of jihadist cave people intent on slaughtering Americans for their “freedoms” and way of life. Thank you Ms. Katz, you, like Fox News hero Sean Hannity, are a great American.

Below is the Fox News article linking the Pakistani Taliban to the Times Square bomb plot.

MYFOXNY.COM – Fox 5 reports that the Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility for the bomb plot.

According to Fox News, in a 1 minute video allegedly released by the Pakistani Taliban, the group says the attack is revenge for the death of its leader Baitullah Mehsud and the recent killings of the top leaders of al-Qaida in Iraq.

Images of the slain militants are shown as an unidentified voice recites the message. English subtitles are at the bottom of the screen.

According to the AP, an unidentified speaker on the tape also says the attack comes in response to American “interference and terrorism in Muslim Countries, especially in Pakistan.”

The claim could not be immediately confirmed and the tape makes no specific reference to the attack nor does it mention that it was a car bomb or that it took place in New York City.

A text in gold letters on a black background at the start of the video congratulates Muslims for the “jaw-breaking blow to Satan’s USA.” As the speaker recites the message, images of the slain militants referred to flash across the screen. English subtitles are provided at the bottom of the screen.

The video was uncovered Sunday by SITE, which monitors militant websites and has been accurate with such militant claims in the past.

Slo-Mo Conservative Mayor Dares Left-Wingers to Challenge Town’s Thong Ban

(CNN) –If you plan on going to Kure Beach, North Carolina, bring your sunscreen and shades, but please leave your thong behind. The seaside community has adopted a zero tolerance policy on anyone wearing the barely-there bikini by the shore on their part of North Carolina’s Pleasure Island, just south of Wilmington.

“You can do what you want to in your own space,” said Mayor Dean Lambeth, “but for public decency, keep it off the public beach.” Lambeth told CNN he and the town supervisors last week unanimously approved the ordinance banning the skimpy bathing wear. “Everything we do is family oriented. We like the small town atmosphere,” he said.

Section 12-32 of the Code of the Town of Kure Beach, which was adopted on April 22, makes it illegal “for any person being naked or insufficiently clothed … to bathe or swim in the Atlantic Ocean” or any other area within the town’s jurisdiction. Sun-bathing “naked or insufficiently clothed” is also banned. “Thong bathing suits or similar attire are specifically prohibited,” the code says. Anyone wearing a thong on the beach will be fined $25.

Lambeth said reaction to the no-thong policy has been overwhelmingly positive. “I have gotten probably 100 e-mails from all over the U.S. supporting our stance,” he told CNN. “I’m getting calls from New York, California that they are glad somebody is finally taking a stand for public decency.”

Lambeth, who said Kure Beach’s population swells from 2,500 to 11,000 in the summer, described the town as “nice, slow-mo and conservative.” “We’re just a small southern community, and that’s how we’re going to keep it,” he said.

He also suspected the decision on the thongs could end up in court and blamed liberals for that. “You can file a suit — the way this country is leaning so far left, it wouldn’t surprise me,” he said. “They want to challenge it? They want to spend the money? Go for it.” Lambeth said people can wear thongs in their homes and backyards. And with his policy in place, he told CNN he’s content.

“I’m sitting out here looking at the ocean and don’t see a damn thong in sight.”

PowerPoint Spaghetti Undermines Victory in The War of Terror


“The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact.”
~ George Orwell

“War is a racket. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.”

~ Major General D. Smedley (USMC)

Hat tip to Cryptogon for directing attention to this New York Times article:

WASHINGTON — Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, the leader of American and NATO forces in Afghanistan, was shown a PowerPoint slide in Kabul last summer that was meant to portray the complexity of American military strategy, but looked more like a bowl of spaghetti.

“When we understand that slide, we’ll have won the war,” General McChrystal dryly remarked, one of his advisers recalled, as the room erupted in laughter.

The slide has since bounced around the Internet as an example of a military tool that has spun out of control. Like an insurgency, PowerPoint has crept into the daily lives of military commanders and reached the level of near obsession. The amount of time expended on PowerPoint, the Microsoft presentation program of computer-generated charts, graphs and bullet points, has made it a running joke in the Pentagon and in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“PowerPoint makes us stupid,” Gen. James N. Mattis of the Marine Corps, the Joint Forces commander, said this month at a military conference in North Carolina. (He spoke without PowerPoint.) Brig. Gen. H. R. McMaster, who banned PowerPoint presentations when he led the successful effort to secure the northern Iraqi city of Tal Afar in 2005, followed up at the same conference by likening PowerPoint to an internal threat.

“It’s dangerous because it can create the illusion of understanding and the illusion of control,” General McMaster said in a telephone interview afterward. “Some problems in the world are not bullet-izable.”

Commanders say that behind all the PowerPoint jokes are serious concerns that the program stifles discussion, critical thinking and thoughtful decision-making. Not least, it ties up junior officers — referred to as PowerPoint Rangers — in the daily preparation of slides, be it for a Joint Staff meeting in Washington or for a platoon leader’s pre-mission combat briefing in a remote pocket of Afghanistan.

Last year when a military Web site, Company Command, asked an Army platoon leader in Iraq, Lt. Sam Nuxoll, how he spent most of his time, he responded, “Making PowerPoint slides.” When pressed, he said he was serious.

“I have to make a storyboard complete with digital pictures, diagrams and text summaries on just about anything that happens,” Lieutenant Nuxoll told the Web site. “Conduct a key leader engagement? Make a storyboard. Award a microgrant? Make a storyboard.”

Senior officers say the program does come in handy when the goal is not imparting information, as in briefings for reporters [many a truth is buried in a throwaway line at the end of a disinfo rag article].

The news media sessions often last 25 minutes, with 5 minutes left at the end for questions from anyone still awake. Those types of PowerPoint presentations, Dr. Hammes said, are known as “hypnotizing chickens.”

H1N1 Vaccine Blues Part 2: The Limited Hangout

Source: Washington Post (corporate media propagandist outlet)

Federal health officials are investigating the first hints of any possible significant complications from the H1N1 vaccine, but stressed that the concerns will probably turn out to be a false alarm.

The latest analysis of data has detected what could be a somewhat elevated rate of Guillain-Barré syndrome, which can cause paralysis and death; Bell’s palsy, a temporary facial paralysis; and thrombocytopenia, which is a low level of blood platelets, officials reported Friday.

Officials stressed that it is far too early to know whether the vaccine was increasing the risk of those conditions or whether there is some other explanation, such as doctors identifying more cases because of the intensive effort to pinpoint any safety problems with the vaccine.

Federal “officials” stress that the early reports will probably turn out to be a false alarm. These are the same officials whose job security is dependent on protecting the pharmaceutical industrial complex where they cut their pointy little teeth. The next quote calls into question the prophetic skills of these ethically compromised, corporate pawn, bureaucrats.

“We’re at the first step of determining whether there is a problem,” Guthrie S. Birkhead, who chairs the Health and Human Services Department’s National Vaccine Advisory Committee. “There’s a lot more work to determine whether there is.”

The vaccine was administered to 350 million to 400 million people worldwide, including as many as 80 million Americans, as part of an unprecedented response to the first flu pandemic in decades.

Tax Day Plea: U.S. National Security Dependent on Timely Filed IRS Returns

This is a direct appeal to anyone who reads this. Please file your tax return by tomorrow’s deadline (April 15th). Ensuring that the State is adequately funded is a civic, legal, and moral duty for every U.S. citizen. The U.S. Treasury is facing the threat of severe under-funding due to the current economic meltdown, corporate offshore tax havens, and greedy deadbeats who refuse to fulfill their end of the social contract.

The safety and security of Americans home and abroad is strengthened when patriotic and responsible citizens fulfill their legal obligations under the I.R.S. tax code. The criminal reprobates who refuse to pay taxes selfishly place our country in great risk from the threat of aggressive nations, state-sponsored terrorists, and rogue Islamic jihadist murderers who hate Americans for our multitudinous freedoms and liberties.

How might your failure to pay taxes put millions of Americans home and abroad in peril? Military spending accounts for 53% of the U.S. budget. Therefore, when you fail to pay your taxes, the world for Americans becomes less safe by more than half. Here are some concrete examples of how military spending protects you and your fellow citizens from those that hate you and your way of life.

  • MILITARY SPENDING FIGURES – U.S. military spending for FY08 was $623 billion compared to the $500 billion aggregate military spending of all other countries combined. Under President Obama’s wise leadership, $708 billion has been requested for FY11 (which will make the U.S. about 13% safer than three years ago).
    • Since the U.S. spends more on military spending than all other countries combined, this guarantees that if all other countries conspire to attack us at once, they will be destroyed.
    • Although President Obama’s nuke reduction bluff will decrease the stockpile of atomic weapons in foreign nations, increased annual military spending acts as an insurance policy against emerging WMD technologies that the Asians are probably developing.
  • IRAQ WAR – The CBO estimates that by 2017 total costs for the War in Iraq could reach $1.9 trillion dollars (partially due to interest from debt financing).
    • Iraq is teeming with angry Muhammadists (due to the +1 million civilian war casualties) and a fragile government that will likely never achieve self-governing stability.
    • Ongoing military presence in Iraq will protect continuous petroleum supplies for the U.S. and global markets by safe-guarding BP and Dutch Shell drilling and refining operations and by derailing irresponsible nationalization efforts.
    • The continuing occupation of Iraq will act as a safeguard against attempts to reinstate their WMD program, torture facilities, and rape rooms.

    Below: What happens to bad people in Iraq who defy U.S. military personnel

  • AFGHANISTAN WAR – The total cost of the Afghanistan War (Operation Enduring Freedom) is roughly $300 billion dollars. President Obama’s recent brave decision to ramp up the war by sending 30,000 additional troops (and 56,000 disposable contractors) sends an unmistakable message to the terrorists that America will never lose its resolve in the War of Terror.
    • Continuing Afghan operations will ensure that Osama bin Laden, and his fellow cave people conspirators responsible for the 9-11 attacks, will eventually be brought to justice.
    • Military incursions and random drone bombings in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region will dissuade potential Islamic radicals from choosing terrorism as a career option.
    • U.S. military presence in the country will generate friendly relations in Central Asia by ensuring the Trans-Afghanistan Oil Pipeline (TAP) meets its 2014 construction deadline.
    • Success in the War in Afghanistan will guarantee that the World will respect (and fear) our country when they see that America succeeded where Alexander the Great and the Soviets failed miserably.
    • U.S. military presence in Afghanistan provides security to opium harvesting operations. This will promote goodwill among international drug cartels, pharmaceutical corporations, junkies, and pain-ridden recipients of opiate prescriptions.

  • PROJECTED MILITARY POWER
    • The Department of Defense owns over 600,000 individual buildings and structures, at more than 6,000 locations, on more than 30 million acres.
    • An estimated 1,000 of these military installations are in foreign countries (potential enemies).
    • Over 250,000 active duty military personnel are deployed in 135 countries (out of 195 countries in the World). Until 100% global U.S. military saturation is achieved, the 60 unoccupied countries pose a potential grave threat to national security.

Please do the right thing on April 15th. The survival of future generations of Americans hinges on your willingness to contribute to the defense of this great nation. If you choose to avoid this obligation, you will be hunted down, criminally charged, and imprisoned like the vile scum that you are.

Low Hanging Fruit: Drug War Goons Relentless Harassment of Willie Nelson

DA will charge Willie Nelson’s crew (Source)

District Attorney Dewey Hudson said six Willie Nelson band members charged with having marijuana and moonshine at a January show in Kenansville, N.C.  “are not above the law.”

Substances — believed to be marijuana by N.C. Alcohol Law Enforcement (ALE) agents who confiscated it from band members Jan. 28 — are being tested at the SBI crime lab in Raleigh, he said.

The six members of Nelson’s band who were issued citations on either possession of marijuana or possession of non-tax-paid alcohol were outside the Duplin County Events Center when ALE agents allegedly smelled burning marijuana coming from the band’s bus.

Nelson, who had not yet arrived, canceled the show. His staff said the show was called off because the musician’s hand was hurting. Many of Nelson’s fans waiting for the show said they felt it was canceled because of the bust.

N.C. State Sen. Charlie Albertson, D-District 10, who is not seeking re-election, recorded a song critical of ALE and the charges filed against Nelson’s band.

He said it appears ALE made a special effort to bust the band.

Although critics say ALE agents were playing cowboy that night, Hudson said ALE told him previous events at the venue had became unruly and they were asked by local law enforcement to help monitor the crowd.

An ALE spokesman said the bust was coincidental, but Albertson said ALE’s codename for the event was “Operation On the Road Again,” named for one of Nelson’s most recognizable chart-topping songs.

Attorneys for the band have alluded they will claim selective prosecution in that ALE focused on band members because they were famous.

Charges are also pending against the event manager, who is accused of interfering with the ALE. Charges against some show attendees who were cited with minor alcohol violations have been dismissed.

I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong? ~ Willie Nelson

The First Lady’s Voodoo Garden

According to disreputable Skull and Bonesman and Washington Post reporter Dana Milbank:

The first lady of the United States, dirt on her knees, then taught the children how to do “the rhubarb dance,” which consisted of wiggling fingers and casting a voodoo-like spell on the herb and chanting, “Grow, rhubarb, grow.” She then marched them rhythmically around the plot. “You gotta shake it!” she instructed.
