RFK Jr. Blows the Whistle on Diebold - On July 13, the Pensacola, Fla.-based law firm of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. filed a "qui tam" lawsuit in U.S. District Court, alleging that Diebold and other electronic voting machine (EVM) companies fraudulently represented to state election boards and the federal government that their products were "unhackable
Kennedy claims to have witnesses "centrally located, deep within the corporations," who will confirm that company officials withheld their knowledge of problems with accuracy, reliability and security of EVMs in order to procure government contracts. Since going into service, many of these machines have been linked to allegations of election fraud.

Wayne Madsen on: Georgia Rep. Cynthia McKinney, facing a run-off with County Commissioner Hank Johnson on August 8, is being targeted by out-of-state money being funneled through law enforcement associations dedicated to her defeat. The involvement of the law enforcement associations stems from an altercation in April between a US Capitol policeman and McKinney. The cop was the main actor in a pre-planned incident designed to embarrass McKinney in an election year and cost her the 4th congressional district seat. The use of the Capitol Hill cops to "get McKinney" was the result of a carefully-planned script involving top Republicans who worked in the past for the Capitol Police. These include Alexandria's Vice Mayor and retired Capitol policeman Bill Cleveland, an African-American Republican, and Terrance Gainer, the chief of the Capitol Police at the time of the McKinney incident. Gainer, a Republican from Illinois, resigned after he was charged with nepotism for violating police rules in hiring his son-in-law for the police force. However, Gainer is reportedly a member of the conservative Catholic John Carroll Society, an organization that links him to a number of right-wing GOP causes. Although Gainer pushed for a DC Grand Jury to indict McKinney, the jury found no evidence to indict and totally cleared McKinney of any wrongdoing.

Wayne Madsen on: The Israeli invasion of Lebanon was planned between top Israeli officials and members of the Bush administration. On June 17 and 18, former Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Likud Knesset member Natan Sharansky met with Vice President Dick Cheney at the American Enterprise Institute conference in Beaver Creek, Colorado. There, the impending Israeli invasions of both Gaza and Lebanon were discussed. After receiving Cheney's full backing for the invasion of Gaza and Lebanon, Netanyahu flew back to Israel and participated in a special "Ex-Prime Ministers" meeting, in which he conveyed the Bush administration's support for the carrying out of the "Clean Break" policy -- the trashing of all past Middle East peace accords, including Oslo. Present at the meeting, in addition to Netanyahu, were current Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and former Prime Ministers Ehud Barak and Shimon Peres. Former Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir is very old and suffers from dementia and Ariel Sharon remains in a coma after a series of strokes.

U.S. Arming of Israel: How U.S. Weapons Manufacturers Profit From Middle East Conflict
Much has been made of the Syrian and Iranian origin of weaponry used by Hezbollah but there has been little discussion of where Israel's weapons come from. A new report by the World Policy Institute examines how the United States provides billions of dollars of military aid to Israel each year and how their current arsenal is composed of U.S. made equipment.

Fury Grips Syria Over Lebanon Attacks
Anger is spilling over against the U.S. government - and its citizens. Ola Saleh, a 25-year-old civil rights volunteer from Latakia said: "In Syria people used to differentiate between the Bush regime and the American people. But now not only do Syrians not respect the Bush regime, they no longer respect the American people for allowing this to happen."

Once again, truth is the first casualty of war
The exchange rate for Lebanese vs Israeli deaths now stands at 10 to one
As many lies are now falling upon Lebanon as bombs. The explosions are easy to count - three on the southern suburbs of Beirut yesterday morning and many on the main highway to Syria, destroying more of the great viaduct at Mdeirej along with three passengers buses which were returning to Lebanon after carrying foreigners to Damascus. The lies were less obvious but just as powerful.

"Stop That Shit!"
And the most disgusting sight: George Bush in a playful mood sitting on his chair in St. Petersburg, with his loyal servant Tony Blair leaning over him, and solving the problem: "See? What they need to do is get Syria to get Hizbullah to stop doing that shit, and it's over."Thus spake the leader of the world, and the seven dwarfs - "the great of the world" - say Amen.
SYRIA? But only a few months ago it was Bush - yes, the same Bush - who induced the Lebanese to drive the Syrians out of their country. Now he wants them to intervene in Lebanon and impose order?

Israel’s New Math - 2 = 500,000
This is obviously the outcome of the newly emerged Hebraic arithmetic laws. For 2 kidnapped Israeli soldiers who are still kept alive, 500,000 innocent Lebanese civilians are displaced. For 2 abducted Israeli soldiers, Lebanon, a sovereign state, is brought back down on its knees. Its civil infrastructure is ‘gone’. Some of its capital’s residential quarters and southern villages are already wiped out. Indeed, ‘two equals half a million’ is the new arithmetic the Israelis insist upon imposing on the region. Is it that surprising? Not at all, as predicted by Gershon Sholem already in the 1930’s: once the Jews start to speak Hebrew, it won’t take long before they consider themselves to be God.

Targeting Civilians As Deliberate Strategy - Israel’s Indiscriminate Onslaughts
The expressions of shock that Lebanese civilians are taking the brunt of Israel’s onslaught -- and the unwillingness in some quarters of the media to report the fact -- reflects a poor understanding of Israel’s historical use of violence. Since its birth six decades ago, Israel has always been officially “going after the terrorists”, but its actions have invariably harmed civilians in an indiscriminate manner.

The Corporation - part 1
Since the late 18th century American legal decision that the business corporation organizational model is legally a person, it has become a dominant economic, political and social force around the globe. This film takes an in-depth psychological examination of the organization model through various case studies. What the study illustrates is that in the its behaviour, this type of "person" typically acts like a dangerously destructive psychopath without conscience.
