Pentagon financial accounts shadier than expected

Turns out if you want a country bombed to Kingdom Come, call the Pentagon. If you wish to extend your power base into the world, call the Pentagon. If you have your eye on some resources that don’t belong to you, call you-know-who.

And if you want death-dealing drones that can be hacked, call our Death Star, the Pentagon.

But if you want to know where outrageous amounts of our money went, Do Not Call the Pentagon.

Tom Tomorrow: The Republican War On Women

Tom Tomorrow’s The Republican War on Women comic strip makes some very good points, in case you missed this one.

Shift of Earth’s Magnetic Pole and John Wheeler

A couple of years ago I asked a scientist friend if she thought that Earth’s poles are shifting. She said, No.

Turns out, they are. They’re shifting 40 miles per year toward Russia, of all places.

Now I’ve always been intrigued with mystical Russia and I find the year 1905 fascinating but going from Tampa to Russia? The above too-brief article has it all.

You may also be interested in Astrology of John Wheeler’s Murder which I posted earlier today, plus, here’s a video *presentation that purports to connect the thousands of dead blackbirds that have fallen from the sky recently (and perhaps other animal kills in various places of late) with the murder of chemical and biological weapons expert John P. Wheeler, a former aide to US presidents Reagan, Bush, and Bush, and who peeks from Washington shadows to become that special breed: a man who knew too much.

*It’s one of those not-really-a-video videos. You know. Interesting though. jc

Lawsuit leaks US spy’s ID

Not WikiLeaks this time but a lawsuit over US drone strikes in Pakistan killing innocent people has revealed the name of an American spy.

He has fled for safety after receiving death threats.

Article Round-Up: WikiLeaks Mirrors-Fisk-Pilger-Wolf-plus

Well, this may be the largest Article-Round-Up I’ve ever posted for your consideration for there’s so much going on and situations are fluxxing fast:

Wikileaks Mirrors

Wikileaks is currently mirrored on 1559 websites.

Why Are Wars Not Being Reported Honestly?

By John Pilger

The public needs to know the truth about wars. So why have journalists colluded with governments to hoodwink us?

Lebanon Holds its Breath Over Leaked Revelations

By Robert Fisk in Beirut

The Hezbollah party is using the cables as proof of UN involvement with Washington- and thus, by extension, with Israel – and politicians are desperately denying that they gave intelligence information to the Americans about Hezbollah’s secret communications system.

WikiLeaks Cables Show Deeper U.S. Military Role in Muslim World

By SHASHANK BENGALI

From the Saudi-Yemen border to lawless Somalia and the north-central African desert,the U.S. military is more engaged in armed conflicts in the Muslim world than the U.S. government openly acknowledges, according to cables released by the WikiLeaks website.

What’s Behind the War on WikiLeaks

By Ray McGovern

WikiLeaks has teased the genie of transparency out of a very opaque bottle, and powerful forces in America, who thrive on secrecy, are trying desperately to stuff the genie back in.

Well, as a long-time fan of Mark Twain, I do suspect that it’s his restless squirming in his grave that we’ve been hearing for decades now given the sorry state of journalism which worsens by the minute.

And now it seems journalist Twain knocks upon his coffin lid, begging to jump out and give our current batch of Orwellian propagandists and media monopolists and moguls some sharp punches in their lousy, warmongering, anti-societal, ‘one world government’ snoots!

But mostly by way of his mightier-than-the-sword pen, of course.

WikiLeaks to reveal Iraq War docs

The announcement of Superbombs and Secret Jails: what to look for in WikiLeaks Iraq Docs has me mired in an emotional quandary because next week’s promised documents release makes its timing perilous (though when would be a good time to uncover the shadowy machinations of the Bush-Cheney regime?) and yet I feel that an end to US imperialistic war and strong-arming would do the entire planet a world of good if it could be accomplished.

Yet WikiLeaks or no, US arrogance churns on, bankrupting our nation as it beggars we-the-people, and exporting the terrorism it purports to address.

And while my Flower Power Generation took to the streets to voice our strong opposition to the Vietnam fiasco and carnage, I keep wondering whas’up with our current generation of canon fodder – is it the cool techie games they grew up playing that have them so enthralled with going to war for oil, the globalist agenda, politics, and profits-for-the-rich in this too-real world of drones and pain?

Columbus Day 2010 and a brightest star

My Ode to Columbus Day from last year’s celebration still rings true for me, how about you?

Here’s a good resource from History.com with articles and videos on the topic of Christopher Columbus and the ‘discovery’ of the New World. Obviously the indigenous peoples of 1492 had no idea the continent was missing.

You may also be interested in the constellation Columbae which is associated with the concept of peace. You remember peace, that concept and condition which the US military government has replaced with perpetual war in order to establish global domination…’globalism’.

Be that as it may, the brightest star in the constellation Columba is Alpha Columba Noae (Noah’s Dove) which in Arabic is Al-Fakhita (the dove) and is generally called, Phact.

In Astrology, Phact’s keywords are: ‘exploring uncharted waters’ and ‘to seek adventure’ which handily leads us back to old Chris Columbus 518 years ago and forward to Columbus Day 2010!
