THE 3 FACEBOOK SETTINGS EVERY USER SHOULD CHECK NOW

January 20, 2010

By SARAH PEREZ of ReadWriteWeb

In December, Facebook made a series of bold and controversial changes regarding the nature of its users' privacy on the social networking site. The company once known for protecting privacy to the point of exclusivity (it began its days as a network for college kids only - no one else even had access), now seemingly wants to compete with more open social networks like the microblogging media darling Twitter.

Those of you who edited your privacy settings prior to December's change have nothing to worry about - that is, assuming you elected to keep your personalized settings when prompted by Facebook's "transition tool." The tool, a dialog box explaining the changes, appeared at the top of Facebook homepages this past month with its own selection of recommended settings. Unfortunately, most Facebook users likely opted for the recommended settings without really understanding what they were agreeing to. If you did so, you may now be surprised to find that you inadvertently gave Facebook the right to publicize your private information including status updates, photos, and shared links.

Want to change things back? Read on to find out how.

1. Who Can See The Things You Share (Status Updates, Photo, Videos, etc.)

Probably the most critical of the "privacy" changes (yes, we mean those quotes sarcastically) was the change made to status updates. Although there's now a button beneath the status update field that lets you select who can view any particular update, the new Facebook default for this setting is "Everyone." And by everyone, they mean everyone.

If you accepted the new recommended settings then you voluntarily gave Facebook the right to share the information about the items you post with any user or application on the site. Depending on your search settings, you may have also given Facebook the right to share that information with search engines, too.

To change this setting back to something of a more private nature, do the following:

1. From your Profile page, hover your mouse over the Settings menu at the top right and click "Privacy Settings" from the list that appears.
2. Click "Profile Information" from the list of choices on the next page.
3. Scroll down to the setting "Posts by Me." This encompasses anything you post, including status updates, links, notes, photos, and videos.
4. Change this setting using the drop-down box on the right. We recommend the "Only Friends" setting to ensure that only those people you've specifically added as a friend on the network can see the things you post.

2. Who Can See Your Personal Info

Facebook has a section of your profile called "personal info," but it only includes your interests, activities, and favorites. Other arguably more personal information is not encompassed by the "personal info" setting on Facebook's Privacy Settings page. That other information includes things like your birthday, your religious and political views, and your relationship status.

After last month's privacy changes, Facebook set the new defaults for this other information to viewable by either "Everyone" (for family and relationships, aka relationship status) or to "Friends of Friends" (birthday, religious and political views). Depending on your own preferences, you can update each of these fields as you see fit. However, we would bet that many will want to set these to "Only Friends" as well. To do so:

1. From your Profile page, hover your mouse over the Settings menu at the top right and click "Privacy Settings" from the list that appears.
2. Click "Profile Information" from the list of choices on the next page.
3. The third, fourth, and fifth item listed on this page are as follows: "birthday," "religious and political views," and "family and relationship." Locking down birthday to "Only Friends" is wise here, especially considering information such as this is often used in identity theft.
4. Depending on your own personal preferences, you may or may not feel comfortable sharing your relationship status and religious and political views with complete strangers. And keep in mind, any setting besides "Only Friends" is just that - a stranger. While "Friends of Friends" sounds innocuous enough, it refers to everyone your friends have added as friends, a large group containing hundreds if not thousands of people you don't know. All it takes is one less-than-selective friend in your network to give an unsavory person access to this information.

3. What Google Can See - Keep Your Data Off the Search Engines

When you visit Facebook's Search Settings page, a warning message pops up. Apparently, Facebook wants to clear the air about what info is being indexed by Google. The message reads:

There have been misleading rumors recently about Facebook indexing all your information on Google. This is not true. Facebook created public search listings in 2007 to enable people to search for your name and see a link to your Facebook profile. They will still only see a basic set of information.

While that may be true to a point, the second setting listed on this Search Settings page refers to exactly what you're allowing Google to index. If the box next to "Allow" is checked, you're giving search engines the ability to access and index any information you've marked as visible by "Everyone." As you can see from the settings discussed above, if you had not made some changes to certain fields, you would be sharing quite a bit with the search engines...probably more information than you were comfortable with. To keep your data private and out of the search engines, do the following:

1. From your Profile page, hover your mouse over the Settings menu at the top right and click "Privacy Settings" from the list that appears.
2. Click "Search" from the list of choices on the next page.
3. Click "Close" on the pop-up message that appears.
4. On this page, uncheck the box labeled "Allow" next to the second setting "Public Search Results." That keeps all your publicly shared information (items set to viewable by "Everyone") out of the search engines. If you want to see what the end result looks like, click the "see preview" link in blue underneath this setting.

Take 5 Minutes to Protect Your Privacy

While these three settings are, in our opinion, the most critical, they're by no means the only privacy settings worth a look. In a previous article (written prior to December's changes, so now out-of-date), we also looked at things like who can find you via Facebook's own search, application security, and more.

While you may think these sorts of items aren't worth your time now, the next time you lose out on a job because the HR manager viewed your questionable Facebook photos or saw something inappropriate a friend posted on your wall, you may have second thoughts. But why wait until something bad happens before you address the issue?

Considering that Facebook itself is no longer looking out for you, it's time to be proactive about things and look out for yourself instead. Taking a few minutes to run through all the available privacy settings and educating yourself on what they mean could mean the world of difference to you at some later point...That is, unless you agree with Facebook in thinking that the world is becoming more open and therefore you should too.

Note: Other resources on Facebook's latest changes worth reading include MakeUseOf's 8 Steps Toward Regaining your Privacy, 17 steps to protect your privacy from Inside Facebook, the ACLU's article examining the changes, and DotRights.org's comprehensive analysis of the new settings. If you're unhappy enough to protest Facebook's privacy update, you can sign ACLU's petition. The FTC is also looking into the matter thanks to a complaint filed by a coalition of privacy groups, led by the Electronic Privacy Information Center. You can add your voice to the list of complaints here.

U.S. SPEEDING UP MISSILE DEFENCES IN PERSIAN GULF

January 31, 2010
By DAVID E. SANGER and ERIC SCHMITT
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is accelerating the deployment of new defenses against possible Iranian missile attacks in the Persian Gulf, placing special ships off the Iranian coast and antimissile systems in at least four Arab countries, according to administration and military officials.

The deployments come at a critical turning point in President Obama’s dealings with Iran. After months of unsuccessful diplomatic outreach, the administration is trying to win broad international consensus for sanctions against the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, which Western nations say control a covert nuclear arms program.

Mr. Obama spoke of the shift in his State of the Union address, warning of “consequences” if Iran continued to defy United Nations demands to stop manufacturing nuclear fuel. And Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton publicly warned China on Friday that its opposition to sanctions was shortsighted.

The news that the United States is deploying antimissile defenses — including a rare public discussion of them by Gen. David H. Petraeus — appears to be part of a coordinated administration strategy to increase pressure on Iran.

The deployments are also partly intended to counter the impression that Iran is fast becoming the most powerful military force in the Middle East, to forestall any Iranian escalation of its confrontation with the West if new sanctions are imposed. In addition, the administration is trying to show Israel that there is no immediate need for military strikes against Iranian nuclear and missile facilities, according to administration officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

By highlighting the defensive nature of the buildup, the administration was hoping to avoid a sharp response from Tehran.

Military officials said that the countries that accepted the defense systems were Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Kuwait. They said the Kuwaitis had agreed to take the defensive weapons to supplement older, less capable models it has had for years. Saudi Arabia and Israel have long had similar equipment of their own.

General Petraeus has declined to say who was taking the American equipment, probably because many countries in the gulf region are hesitant to be publicly identified as accepting American military aid and the troops that come with it. In fact, the names of countries where the antimissile systems are deployed are classified, but many of them are an open secret.

The general spoke about the deployments at a conference at the Institute for the Study of War here on Jan. 22, saying that “Iran is clearly seen as a very serious threat by those on the other side of the gulf front.”

General Petraeus said that the acceleration of defensive systems — which began when President George W. Bush was in office — included “eight Patriot missile batteries, two in each of four countries.” Patriot missiles are capable of shooting down short-range offensive missiles.

He also described a first line of defense: He said the United States was now keeping Aegis cruisers on patrol in the Persian Gulf at all times. Those cruisers are equipped with advanced radar and antimissile systems designed to intercept medium-range missiles. Those systems would not be useful against Iran’s long-range missile, the Shahab 3, but intelligence agencies believe that it will be years before Iran can solve the problems of placing a nuclear warhead atop that missile.

Iran contends that it is not trying to develop nuclear weapons, and that its program is for energy production. The White House declined to comment on the deployments.

But administration officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity said the moves have several aims. “Our first goal is to deter the Iranians,” said one senior administration official. “A second is to reassure the Arab states, so they don’t feel they have to go nuclear themselves. But there is certainly an element of calming the Israelis as well.”

As Iran’s nuclear program proceeds — more slowly, American intelligence officials say, than the United States had once thought — Israel has hinted at various times that it might take military action against the country’s military facilities unless it is convinced that Mr. Obama and Western allies are succeeding in stopping the program.

Mr. Obama’s national security adviser, Gen. James L. Jones, took an unannounced trip to Israel this month, partly to take the temperature of the Israeli government and to review both economic and covert programs now under way against the Iranian program, according to officials familiar with the meeting.

American officials argue that the willingness of Arab states to take the American emplacements, which usually come with a small deployment of American soldiers to operate, maintain and protect the equipment, illustrates the region’s growing unease about Iran’s ambitions and abilities.

Gulf countries are also taking steps of their own to harden their defenses. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have bought more than $15 billion in American arms in the past two years, including missile defense systems. The United States is helping support a plan by Saudi Arabia to triple the size, to 30,000 people, of a Saudi force that protects the kingdom’s ports, oil facilities and water-desalinization plants, a senior military officer said. The Washington Post reported both steps on its Web site on Saturday.

One senior military officer said that General Petraeus had started talking openly about the Patriot deployments about a month ago, when it became increasingly clear that international efforts toward imposing sanctions against Iran faced hurdles, and the administration’s efforts to engage Iran were being rebuffed by the Tehran government. In October, the two countries reached an agreement in principle to move a significant portion of Iran’s nuclear fuel out of the country, but Iran backed away from the deal.

In discussing the Patriots and missile-shooting ships, General Petraeus’s main message has been to reassure allies in the gulf that the United States is committed to helping defend the region, said the military officer, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the delicate nature of the topic. But the general’s remarks were also a pointed reminder to the Iranians of American resolve, the officer said.

COULD VANCOUVER 2010 BE THE NEXT 9/11?

Dprogram on infowars.com
January 29, 2010

WARNING: I now believe I have reasonable grounds to suspect there may be a “false flag” attack carried out during the Olympics in Canada. The games will take place in Vancouver and Whistler from Feb. 12th until Feb. 28th. Below, I have compiled the following suspicious activity by searching and analyzing the news from various media sources and by speaking with citizens in Canada themselves.

In my opinion, an attack on the Olympics while it is being highly guarded would be the perfect way to bring in more police state measure and to more fully integrate the US and Canada into a functioning North American Union. But the question remains, is that really what is happening right now?

I hope you will look at the information and make up your own mind as to what pattern you see unfolding, any information provided is for analytical and educational purposes only and is meant to raise public awareness of current events and the potential dangers they could present.

WARNING SIGNS:

1.)

Two tons out of 6,000 tons of Ammonium Nitrate, (a material used in making powerful explosives) have gone missing from a shipment to a storage facility in the Vancouver area from a company that was recently bought out for $22 billion by some of the world’s largest financial companies. These companies are Goldman Sachs, AIG, The Carlye Group and others. The company that was purchased is called Kinder Morgan. Kinder Morgan didn’t report the two tons missing for over a month, when they did report it they came back a week later only to say they simply made a “clerical error”. Soon after the announcement, the RCMP started their investigation and came back saying they can’t confirm that it was really accounted for. Kinder Morgan has also tried to point out that they are only one company in the chain that had contact with the shipments. 250 truckloads were reportedly sent to Dyno Nobel (an explosives company) for packaging. There were also trucking companies hired to ship the product that the RCMP is attempting to track down. To put this into perspective, it is claimed that only one ton of this material was used during the Oklahoma City bombing, and now two tons are missing. That amount is more than enough material to cause substantial damage to numerous locations. With all of this said, the question arises, who has the capability and the motive to steal two tons of Ammonium Nitrate?

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/08/28/business/29kindercnd.html?_r=1&dlbk (Kinder Morgan bought out by financial giants)

2.)

The media is suddenly going wild about how Al-Qaeda terrorists in Afghanistan are now using Ammonium Nitrate for explosives and the Afghani government has banned the use of the material. Afghanistan has also banned the use of Ammonium Nitrate for fertilizer due to this problem. There are many articles like these.

http://www.strategypage.com/htmw/htweap/articles/20100125.aspx (Afghanistan bans Ammonium Nitrate fertilizer)

3.)

Right on cue, as if it were a screenplay, and four days before the State of the Union address, the guy you have all heard of since 9/11, haven’t seen in a long time and who is probably dead, Mr. Usama Bin Laden ladies and gentlemen, give him a round of applause! He just came out in what is probably going to turn out to be yet another faked video and predictably praised the underwear bomber that burned his genitals in a failed bombing attempt on Christmas Day of 2009 and said the attacks will continue until we stop supporting Israel. In fact, look just how effective these guys are, they can get our freedoms taken away by our own governments, simply by penetrating our security and hurting only themselves in the process, clever aren’t they?

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/25/world/25binladen.html (Bin Laden, just in time)

4.)

In a recent development Canadian parliament has been prorogued (A term where they are suspended typically in order to make new legislation and where all governmental power resides within the office of the Prime Minister.) until March 3rd (Remember that date.) after the games. The Prime Minister has also been given the sole responsibility for making the judgment call to shoot down any high jacked aircraft; normally this is not his responsibility.

This is strangely the same as before 9/11 where Dick Cheney was given control of the military air defenses for a short time due to war games being conducted, and he denied the request to shoot down the plane approaching the Pentagon. This was testified to by Transportation Secretary, Norman Mineta in front of the 9/11 Commission, though no mention of this was given in the final report you can still watch the video of his testimony.

5.)

On February 14th, 2008, Canada and the US signed an agreement which allows for the deployment of US troops inside Canada.

http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=8323

And if the military wasn’t enough, police officers are allowed to come join in now.

Headline: New maritime security law will deputize U.S. officers “in every part of Canada” during integrated operations. (North American Union anyone?)

“On November 27, Public Safety Minister Peter Van Loan and Justice Minister Rob Nicholson tabled legislation that would transform designated U.S. police and security agents into peace officers equal to the RCMP “in every part of Canada” during joint maritime border operations.”

The Olympics in of 2010 will be a “joint maritime border operation”.

http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=16499

6.)

British Columbia’s privacy office has been frozen, leaving the government unaccountable, says a leaked letter.

“Operations at the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner have ceased, leaving British Columbians with no independent office to hold the government accountable, says a leaked letter marked “Extremely Urgent” to the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly. The letter, sent Friday, is from the executive director of the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner, Mary Carlson, and is addressed to Bill Barisoff. She said staff have shut down the whole operation to avoid any legal issues that could arise from reviewing cabinet files or law-enforcement information. Their duties also include opening appeal files and privacy complaints, securing and reviewing records on the subject of an appeal, authorizing time extensions to respond to access requests and policing the timeliness of government responses to access requests.”

http://www.canada.com/news/national/privacy%20office%20frozen%20leaked%20letter%20says/2475035/story.html

7.)

Hospitals cancelled 2,400 elective surgeries to make room for apparently, much expected patients needing surgeries during the Olympics. Of course, public relations is blaming them for doing it for other reasons like saving money. They say that even if that makes no sense, because the government had no problem spending well over a billion dollars on the Olympics, they are clearly not hurting for money, even if that is what some people think.

8.)

It seems that people may be getting tipped off or have prior knowledge already! What are they afraid of if the largest joint security operation ever taken on by Canada and the US is there to protect them? “Obama is not alone; presidents and prime minister of other countries around the globe are sending representatives as well.”

http://www.examiner.com/x-29795-Vancouver-Social-Policy-Examiner~y2010m1d24-US-President-Obama-likely-a-noshow-for-2010-Olympic-opening-ceremonies

9.)

The same Israeli company Verint, whose camera systems were on buses and the London underground and inconveniently (for us) malfunctioned on 7/7/05 during the London Bombings, was the same company to install cameras in Vancouver Airport, the subways in Montreal, and other key locations around Canada. Also, worthy of noting is that in the past, during a large terrorist attack where their systems are installed, as the DOW goes down, stocks at Verint have always shown to have gone up. They are said to be connected to the Madrid bombings on 3/11, as well as 9/11. In more interesting news about Verint’s systems,

“It appears that there is a backdoor in Verint’s system that can be accessed any time from any where. Still the U.S. continues turning the other cheek and allowing it to happen.”

10.)

Security measures have been increased to an historic all-time high with a budget of $900 million dollars, amid financial turmoil. Security includes the foreign United States military using NORAD to secure the air, purchases of 800 CCTV security cameras, new fences, two remote submarines to check for underwater threats and even bomb sniffing dogs. Canadian military with warships, black helicopters and fighter jets have been seen floating and flying around the Vancouver area already in January causing fear to many Canadians. There will also be tens of thousands of police and private security forces who are reported to be renting schools and trailers to use as bases for their operations.

Strangely enough, regardless of the build-up of security they have undertaken and the threat of attacks, they seem to double-think and claim to not be worried about it that much and are even allowing weaknesses in security to be exploited through the media. The contracted security companies have even been hiring people with zero background in security to help run security at the games, people who will not even have enough time to train properly to do their job.

11.)

The corporate/government-controlled media outlets are exaggerating the threat of radical Islamic terrorism and the UK has raised the threat level to “severe”. The media is also throwing around the term “Al-Qaeda” specifically, it almost seems as if they are trying to scare people. In addition, they’ve even said there is fear of a repeat of the 1996 Atlanta bomb blast.

http://www.macleans.ca/article.jsp?content=20070306_094145_4900 (Al-Qaeda attacks being prepared for by the military)

*My explanation of why the media is used to scare people:

The method for control that professional mind manipulators use is referred to as “Problem, Reaction, Solution” and works using basic mind manipulation techniques, like this; first they cause a traumatic event, a good example that relates to this is 9/11. This causes people lots of grief, pain and fear, and when a traumatic event occurs, the mind naturally attempts to figuratively construct what is sometimes called an “amnesia wall” around that event to block it out, this is a way our mind helps us to deal with fear by forgetting about it. But you can’t just forget about it, you have to have a reason that behavior is acceptable in light of the present danger.

Next, the programming is set in place of who is the enemy and who can stop them. The next phase is to cause the people to recall the traumatic event(9/11/01). By suggesting and warning about the possibility it could happen again, they help to reinforce peoples’ fears of having to experience another traumatic incident.

So by causing them to access the (traumatic) memory that their conscious mind is actively trying to block out, this actually causes them to access the programming they were given after that previous traumatic event happened. The programming was set in place for what should happen next in the case that the traumatic memory is ever brought up again. Subsequently, this causes them to chase after the “hero image” (The government in this case.) that was previously set up for them to trust in to save them from ever having to experience another traumatic incident. Thus the people are willing to relinquish their freedom for security.

By doing so they are exploiting natural processes in the mind and exploiting the “Problem, Reaction, Solution” formula for control. In short, it works by creating a problem, getting the victim to respond to the problem, and providing the victim with a predetermined solution to that problem that was created for them, to bring about a desired outcome for the controller.

12.)

Olympic protests are being rightly predicted to be held by people who are being labeled radicals, (Who in the public mind have begun being associated with “terrorists” and even labeled “domestic terrorists”.) some of the protesters may truly be radicals, and some have publicly stated that they will use violence to disrupt the Olympic games. Certainly though, not all of the protestors are violent extremists. That to me is suspicious as well, who would publicly call for acts of violence and destruction other than someone who is being protected? As if this isn’t enough, Vancouver Integrated Security Unit basically stated that they would not necessarily rule out using agent provocateurs in protests (another false-flag technique), that is very alarming for the peaceful protestors planning to attend.

http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2009/10/13/bc-olympic-violent-resister.html (Anti-Olympic protestor supports violent direct action)

13.)

We also have some strange things happening that have proven in the past to be unusually accurate about predicting the future (Ex. Tom Clancy’s novel that predicted the incident between Russian and Georgia). Here, we find a recent novel written about the Olympics being attacked by terrorists in 2010 in Vancouver, setting the precedent that this is something possible and we should expect it and be afraid. This also is used, once again to cause us to recall a traumatic event such as 9/11 (by the Al Qaeda association) and associate it with the new potential traumatic event (Olympics attack) so the same programming about what to believe and how to act carries over.

14.)

Another strange thing someone noticed is that we have a Hollywood movie (2012) placed in the year 2012, (a movie about the destruction of the world and the elite leaving behind the masses in protective bunkers only to save themselves) mentioning British Columbia 2010. Why was that put in there? Before 9/11 we saw 9/11 in the movies, on TV shows, in books and in video games. Someone knew a long time ago what was being planned for the future.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JHThf32azM (This is an 8 part series showing the Illuminati, New World Order, Freemasonry and 9/11 in entertainment before 9/11 happened, it is very fun to watch.)

15.)

I believe that there will still be hundreds of thousands of people in the area on March 3rd trying to get out using the underground rail, boats, planes and other various modes of transportation. This sets the stage as a prime target for a large death toll and mass hysteria. Locals that left on vacation will also be returning home around this time; the events officially end on Feb. 28, 2010.

Also, I want to point out something a bit strange. Notice the pattern of doubled odd numbers with each of the three previous false flag terrorism events; 3/11 in Madrid, 9/11 in New York, 7/7 in London, and possibly 3/3 in Vancouver. Could another false flag fall on March 3rd?

16.)

There was a foiled “terror plot” called the “Toronto 18” in which 18 people were arrested and detained. Their plan was reportedly to behead the Prime Minister and use Ammonium Nitrate bombs to blow up targets around Canada. The leader has been sentenced to prison for life and is serving that time, but another walked away free after being sentenced 7 years in prison because of his four years already spent in jail. Why did the judge let someone who states he wants people to die to leave jail? And what has happened to the other 16 people? Could they be agents and the “ringleader” a patsy?

An electrical hydro vault in downtown Vancouver also exploded recently and injured three workers while they were doing “regular maintenance”. Electrical maintenance on a thing they claim isn’t even being used for anything? Now, I don’t know about you, but that’s at least a little bit suspicious to me. Why were they working on something that isn’t even used? I find it even more suspect because in the novel that I mentioned earlier, the author calls for cutting power to certain areas in order to facilitate the terrorist attacks. None of the injured workers have been named or interviewed by anyone at all and the cause of the explosion is still “under investigation” by WorkSafe BC. Could this relate to preparations for an attack? Was it a cover for illegal things happening nearby? Or was it just an accident?

The Canadian government bought over $1 million worth of tickets, over 3,200 seats, and refuses to tell why, or who gets them, if anyone does. In some seemingly good news, some politicians are refusing to accept tickets as perks because they say it is “inappropriate”. More recently though,

“The federal and provincial governments are trying to say that the tickets are only being used to ‘advance government agendas’, as though that admission makes it sound any better.”

Now that doesn’t sound suspicious to you, does it?

19.)

Originally, tickets were sold out in two days, prices varied but went as high as $750 per event. Soon after, those who purchased the tickets began to resell them online for higher prices, some as high as $5,000. Ticket sales at those prices have been steady for months until a couple of weeks ago. Suddenly tickets aren’t being purchased, and lots of people are selling their tickets! Tickets are now being sold at prices lower than they were originally. Usually, before an event, the price will go up, but apparently people don’t want to go now, why would that be?

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/dave_zirin/01/25/vancouver/?xid=shareFB (As the Olympics near, people are dreading the games.)

Is it possible that after 9/11, spotting false-flag style terrorism is so much easier now that people have been educated and people have begun seen these things on their own? Is it that people don’t trust their own governments? It’s becoming very evident that people are losing trust in their governments, and they shouldn’t trust them either. There are scores of sites now popping up warning about this possible attack on the Olympics, and searching for more evidence that this could be a false-flag attack. A friend of mine in the Army at Ft. Bragg, NC said to me in recent months that he believes the US military is preparing for a false-flag attack. Now that was scary for me to hear, because he didn’t go into any more detail than that. Anything is possible, and these things are plausible. We don’t need to be afraid, we just need to get the word out, if we do, this may never happen. The reason it would happen is so it could be blamed on another entity, if they can’t do that anymore, they lose that method and have less power over us. Together by spreading the information about this, we can eliminate the threat of false flag terror take away that weapon from those who wish to exploit it and we can use this information as a weapon and turn it right back around on them. I would rather nothing happen, but if it does, we’re going to be here ready to answer why we thought it would happen, and ready to turn this event back against them. So please, join in the search for more information, check out the companies involved, check out the people involved, check their connections, check out previous false flag attacks, learn how they work and find out if anything you see this time reminds you of a previous event. Together, we can save the world, one person at a time, wake up to the world around you, and wake up those around you. Thank you.

Mark McMurtrie IN THE CANBERRA TIMES

A stepping stone to 'healing of nation'
DAVID MCLENNAN
11 Feb, 2008 07:30 AM
Mark McMurtrie hopes this week's apology to the Stolen Generations is just the first step to a broad-ranging apology to Aboriginal people.

He and wife Rose have come to Canberra to hear Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's historic words on Wednesday.

They travelled 1000km from Broadwater in northern NSW, arriving in Canberra to set up their tent at the Aboriginal tent embassy yesterday and are expecting many more people to join them.

The tent embassy is expecting an influx of visitors to listen to Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's apology to the Stolen Generations at 9am on Wednesday and is asking for donations of tents, food, bottled water, blankets, towels and wood to be dropped off at the site.

Mr McMurtrie said it was important the Australian Government apologised for "the theft of people from their families and for the destruction of Aboriginal families in the manner that they did".

"If it is done properly and followed through, it can be the cornerstone of the healing of this nation," he said.

Mr McMurtrie said because of his light skin, it was only when he told people that he was Aboriginal that they began treating him differently.

"That indicates that there is underlying prejudice in the community that has to be removed."

Wednesday's apology could also be a "stepping stone for a real apology".

"By real, what I mean is an encompassing apology, instead of an apology to a small section of our community, because there are other policies that the Australian government has levelled at our people that need addressing, issues like their policies of allowing mining to be conducted against our will on our lands. The theft of our natural resources and the lack of reparations. The list goes on and on and on," he said.

Mr McMurtrie is also part of a group that is planning to take legal action against Britain and the Queen in the European Court of Justice over the occupation of Australia.

He said there was no legislation allowing Britain to take Australia from Aborigines and would be arguing for compensation from the British and for recognition that Aborigines retained sovereignty.

"The one big thing though is that when we do take back possession of Australia, we will not be seeking the removal of anyone from their land, because they have paid for it, they have bought it in good faith."

"When as a young child she was taken, stolen, from her family and her community and in her case, taken away at the age of three or four, never saw her mother again because by the time she was allowed to go out and find a job at the age of 16 her mum had died.

"Those stories are writ large across the country and they are the source of enormous pain ... I think the challenge for us who are non-indigenous Australians is to ask one very simple question: What if that was me? How would I feel?"

Opposition indigenous affairs spokesman Tony Abbott said the Coalition would support the apology, "but in our remarks we will be true to the real history of our country".

"I think there were good intentions at the top level, but good intentions don't always translate into good practice and I think there was an assumption a couple of generations ago that part-Aboriginal kids would be better off outside Aboriginal society. That was a wrong assumption ... ," he said.

"I think we can respect the good intentions of the people of those times while at the same time acknowledging the policy was wrong, and frankly the more enlightened people knew it was wrong even then and that is why we should apologise for it.

"... One of the things we will obviously be pointing out is the term Stolen Generations is misleading. Yes, some kids were stolen and that is shameful, but many kids were helped and some were rescued and I think we need to be honest about that."

Surviving 9/11

Submitted by Carol Brouillet on Wed, 01/27/2010 - 9:38pm.


Janette MacKinlay

On January 26, 2010, Janette MacKinlay, a survivor of 9/11, underwent surgery, a biopsy, following the discovery of a brain tumor last week. I saw her in the hospital following the surgery, and she was her warm, gracious, lucid self, even sharing with me the latest examples of note cards she has had printed, featuring her beautiful ikebana art images. Last September, we had worked together on the 9/11 Film Festival, held at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland, California to draw attention to many 9/11 issues, including the plight of the those suffering from their exposure to the toxic dust, over 800 have died so far, that we know about. Janette believes that her tumor was probably caused by 9/11 and that she, along with many, many, others will be counted as victims of 9/11, as more and more “cancers and tumors” are found.


Fortunate- A Personal Diary of 9/11

Janette’s entire story bears repeating. She wrote a book, Fortunate- A Personal Diary of 9/11, which features photographs from her personal experience, as well as the ikebana floral arrangements that she created, in her effort to heal. On September 11, 2001, she was living across the street from the World Trade Center, and directly witnessed the fires and the collapses which broke the windows of her apartment. Some of the dust that she saved from her apartment, she sent to the physicist Steven Jones who analyzed it, finding iron spheres, as well as chips of nanothermite. Janette had a cameo appearance in Loose Change- 9/11 An American Coup, as well as other 9/11 truth documentaries, and has been interviewed on many mainstream television and radio stations. I hope a great, sensitive, filmmaker decides to make a film about Janette someday, because her story is one of great personal transformation, courage and hope, illustrated by her artistic creations. They say that the most personal story is the most universal and I suspect that the collective American psyche has not yet caught up with Janette, but will someday, hopefully before it is too late.

I met Janette in the summer of 2004, when activists had launched a campaign to “Blow the Whistle on the 9/11 Cover-Up!” in the Bay Area, and had gathered at a Commonwealth Club event where the featured speakers were members of the 9/11 Commission reporting their findings. I was tabling outside of the event and gave Janette a copy of David Ray Griffin’s The New Pearl Harbor-Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration for her book. The Deception Dollar artist, Blaine Machan, by coincidence, sent me Janette’s contact info on the same day that I met her (She had contacted him and was including Deception Dollars in one of her anti-war art exhibitions). Janette says that the commissioners, themselves, that day, persuaded her that they were concealing, rather than searching for the truth about 9/11. Subsequently, Janette became very active with our group, the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance, hosting and organizing events, parties, mailing parties, becoming Treasurer, as well as speaking out publicly. (Her February 23, 2006 talk and powerpoint presentation from the event that she organized- Question 9/11- A Call to Action at the Grand Lake Theater are posted here).

Later, when she visited New York and her old apartment complex, she discovered that her renovated apartment was for rent, she decided to move back to New York City, and became involved with the East Coast activists. Her unique connections with family members, survivors, West Coast activists, East Coast activists helped her to bridge differences and pull diverse people together. She poured a lot of energy into the 9/11 Accountability Conference in Arizona in 2007, as well as the NYC Coalition for Accountability Now effort in 2009.

In the past few months, a number of meetings have been held with lawyers and activists, discussing how best to secure subpoena power and get those most responsible for 9/11 to speak, and to be held criminally accountable for their actions. Janette has been amongst the most active people, doing the vital legwork to seek accountability.

Mike Daly, an ironworker, who has been trying to educate the public about the enormous Captive Fund- created by Congress to “compensate workers for their injuries involved in the clean-up” (See- www.wtccaptivefund.com The huge fund has only hired lawyers to fight claims, paid out almost no money at all to those who have suffered ill health, as a result of 9/11, but has paid big bucks to those managing the fund.) well, Mike was visiting Janette last Wednesday evening when Janette suddenly had trouble speaking. A friend had telephoned her to ask for directions and realized that something was seriously wrong with her and came over immediately to get her to the hospital. Mike had gone to see Janette, because he felt that her artwork should be made into metal sculptures, memorials to 9/11.

This week, Janette had planned to begin taking care of her three month old grandson, Huxley, two days a week. Those plans have been turned upside-down and her two sons, Brian and Mark ,have been looking after Janette and taking her to and from the hospital.

I have not spoken directly with Janette’s doctors or her family about her medical condition. I learned from Janette that they told her that she has a fast growing tumor, the kind associated with people doing construction work, and that the professionals have advised her that she has between 6 months and a year to live. I have learned, from experience, that patients are sometimes not told the truth about their condition or their treatments, and that Western medicine has its limitations. I learned about alternative medicine, before I learned about “alternative politics or alternative media.” Years ago, my fiancĂ© had a tumor, the size of an orange, removed from the center of his brain, and received a very bleak diagnosis for survival. He also had a dramatic remission, thanks to a classic Chinese herbal treatment, prescribed by the Director of Cancer Research in Beijing. I know many people who have survived brain tumors and who have overcome cancer through holistic, natural remedies. Janette has a very strong spirit and with the love and support of friends and family, I hope that she will recover from her surgery, and in the process of healing herself, add to our insights on how we can heal the world. I believe that truth, love, spirit are stronger than the lies, fear, malice deployed to control humanity.

I would encourage everyone to send some love and healing energy towards Janette, as well as towards all the victims, first responders, inhabitants of New York City, and New Jersey, who came into contact with the toxic dust.

Police target Unregistered Cars with new Revenue Making Machine in South Auastralia

By: Peter-Ross: Valentine on: Jan 08 2010 03:14 GMT (329 Reads)

NEW mobile police surveillance cameras which automatically read number plates have become operational, SA Police have announced.

NEW mobile police surveillance cameras which automatically read number plates have become operational, SA Police have announced.

Police have been trialling the cameras - which can photograph a car's numberplate from a distance of up to 3m -on four patrol cars since earlier this month.

Stolen, unregistered or cars belonging to known criminals, hoon drivers or known arsonists are put into a data base linked to the cameras.

Chief Superintendent Paul Schramm said if the cameras detected any of these details, the patrol was alerted by a `flag', prompting further action. .

"We have already had some hoon drivers charged as a result of the technology," Chief-Supt Schramm said.

"We think this technology will make our roads safer."

The cars have two forward-facing cameras and one side- mounted camera, which are able to scan both moving and parked cars.

The results are monitored inside the patrol car by an officer, with the information immediately displayed.

If the number plates reveal the car is unregistered or if its registered owner has outstanding warrants or any other issues of interest to police, then the patrols can take action.

Police Minister Michael Wright said the technology already was in use in the UK.

"This is really at the cutting edge, it will bring us up to date with what is happening in other states around Australia and also overseas," he said.

"It will provide the ability for police to get instant information from number plates whether the driver is known to be involved in drugs or other types of criminal activity."

A decision will be made after the trial ends at Christmas whether to start fitting the cameras to all police cars - incluidng unmarked vehicles - at a cost of $40,000 per police car.

Victoria Police yesterday began trialling a new vehicle-mounted camera capable of scanning up to 700 passing vehicles in an hour, with the trial so far leading to the identification of three banned drivers per hour.

The camera system automatically scans and identifies vehicles registered to disqualified or suspended drivers quickly enough for police officers stationed further along the road to detain the driver.

Trialled in the south-east Melbourne suburb of Moorabbin, the camera – mounted to a nondescript blue Volkswagen Transporter – has demonstrated the significant potential for the system’s automated number plate recognition technology.

Police representatives said that disqualified drivers were involved in 10 percent of all fatal road incidents, with research showing that such drivers are up to nine times more likely to be involved in road incidents than other motorists.

Called Mobile Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras, the new systems will be trialled in four South Australia Police patrol cars until the end of the year, before a decision is made on whether to expand the programme.


Each patrol car is fitted with three ANPR cameras: two forward-facing and a third with with the ability to scan the registration plates of parked vehicles as the patrol car passes.

“It increases the potential for offenders to be identified, stopped and appropriate policing responses undertaken,” a SA Police release reads.

“Intelligence, particularly relating to vehicle location, can link criminals to these vehicles as well as linking vehicles to crime scenes. ANPR will also identify unroadworthy (vehicles).”

Assistant Commissioner Killmier pointed to the technology’s successful use interstate and overseas as evidence of the trial’s worth. He said the cameras will be used in crime reduction and road safety strategies this year.

“As a vehicle licence plate is read by the camera, the image is displayed on an LCD screen visible to police officers and an audible tone alerts police if a registration number plate matches a vehicle of interest,” Assistant Commissioner Killmier said.

“ANPR cameras record the location of a vehicle at an exact time, have a capacity to scan a high volume of vehicle plates, and work in all weather and lighting conditions.

“We hope they will help police intercept dangerous drivers and therefore assist in reducing deaths and serious injury.”

WHO Scientist: Swine Flu Pandemic Was “Completely Exaggerated”

Steve Watson
Infowars.net
Thursday, Jan 28th, 2010

A scientist with the World Health Organisation has testified, during ongoing hearings in Strasbourg, France, that the swine flu pandemic was part of an overblown “angst campaign”, devised in conjunction with major drug companies to boost profits for vaccine manufacturers.

Professor Ulrich Keil, director of the WHO’s Collaborating Centre for Epidemiology, slammed the organization and its flu chief, Dr Keiji Fukuda while giving evidence before The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).

“With SARS, with avian flu, always the predictions are wrong…Why don’t we learn from history?” Keil said. “It [swine flu] produced a lot of turmoil in the pubic and was completely exaggerated in contrast with all the really important matters we have to deal with in public health.”

The WHO adviser on heart disease, added that the decision had led to a “gigantic misallocation” of health budgets.

“We know the great killers are hypertension, smoking, high cholesterol, high body mass index, physical inactivity and low fruit and vegetable intake,” he said. “In spite of all these facts, governments instead wasted huge amounts of money by investing in pandemic scenarios whose evidence base is weak.”

PACE, a 47 nation body encompassing democratically elected members of parliament, will determine whether a “falsified pandemic” was declared by WHO in June 2009 on the advice of medical advisors, many of whom have close financial ties to the very pharmaceutical giants – GlaxoSmithKline, Roche, Novartis, – that produced the H1N1 vaccines.

It will also look into the controversy surrounding the fact that two shots were initially advised when it was later revealed that one dose was entirely suitable, as well as investigating concerns over hastily developed vaccines containing adjuvants.

Pharmaceutical companies are thought to have made a profit of somewhere in the region of $7.5-$10 billion on H1N1 vaccines, recouping the billions they had invested in researching and developing pandemic vaccines after the bird flu scares in 2006 and 2007.

The worldwide death toll from H1N1 is thought to be around 13,500, just over a third of the number who die from regular flu every year in the U.S. alone.

Heading the hearings is the former chairman of the Health Committee of PACE, Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg. A former German lawmaker, a medical doctor and epidemiologist. Wodarg has referred to the swine flu pandemic as “one of the greatest medical scandals of the century.”

Wodarg has pointed out that the WHO softened the definition of a pandemic from an outbreak in several continents at once with an above-average death rate, to one where the spread of the disease is constant.

Just one month after changing the definition, and with just 144 people having died from H1N1, the flu was given the highest threat classification possible, a “stage-six pandemic alert”. By comparison, the mildest 20th Century pandemic killed a million people.

“I have never heard such a worldwide echo to a health political action,” Wodarg, an epidemiologist who formerly led the health committee for the Council of Europe, said at Tuesday’s hearing.

“It was stated in panic- stricken terms that this was a flu that could threaten humanity and a great number of humans could fall ill. This is why billions of dollars of medications were bought.” Wodarg said.

He added that the the change in definition “made it possible for the pharmaceutical industry to transform this opportunity into cash, under contracts which were mainly secret.”

“In my view, the WHO undertook an incomprehensible action, which cannot be justified by scientific evidence. The Council of Europe should investigate this to see how WHO can undertake this kind of dangerous nonsense,” said Dr Wodarg.

WHO’s flu chief, Dr Fukuda, insisted that its swine flu scientists do not have conflicts of interest owing to close links with pharmaceutical companies.

“Let me state clearly for the record – the influenza pandemic policies and responses recommended and taken by WHO were not improperly influenced by the pharmaceutical industry.” Fukuda told the inquiry.

He said those calling the epidemic fake were wrong and irresponsible.

PACE’s findings are expected to be announced January 29 and will likely be followed by an in-depth study and recommendations to European governments.

Swine Flu Didn’t Fly

Drug firms ‘drove swine flu pandemic warning to recoup £billions spent on research’

New ID cards will carry your key biological data

Fiach Kelly Political Correspondent
The Irish Independent
Wednesday, January 27, 2010

THE controversial public services identity card will be equipped to carry biological data — such as fingerprints and eye scans — when it is unveiled later this year.

The new details emerged following the confirmation yesterday that the Department of Social and Family Affairs contracted a biometrics company to produce the cards.

The scheme will now be rolled out in the second half of the year.

The department told the Irish Independent that there were “no current plans to carry DNA or any form of biometric data on the card”.

“However, the card, as proposed, can include biometric data,” it added.

The Government says that about three million people over the age of 16 will carry the card.

And thousands may have to present themselves at welfare offices to sign up for it when it is launched.

It is hoped that every adult in the country will have a card within three or four years.

Existing data held by the Government — such as photographs, signatures and PPS numbers — will be used to create the cards.

Much of the data is already available to the State through other forms of identification, such as passports.

More than three million people over the age of 18 hold Irish passports, but it is not clear how many of them live in the State. Figures for those aged 16 and over could not be provided.

If there are any gaps in a person’s information held by the authorities, that person will then have to give the missing details — meaning thousands of people could have to go to welfare offices.

“It is not possible at this time to estimate the volume of customers for whom data is not held but it is intended to ask these customers to personally register for the card,” a statement from Social and Family Affairs Minister Mary Hanafin’s department said.

The card will initially contain the holder’s name, photograph, signature and public service number, which is used to access welfare benefits and other state services.

In addition, personal details such as a person’s date of birth, former surnames and mother’s surname are likely to be electronically encoded on the identity card.

Any other information that may be deemed necessary can be either inscribed or electronically encoded on the card.

The Government is ploughing ahead with the scheme despite the reservations of groups like the Irish Council for Civil Liberties.

Fraud

Officials say that it will allow easier access to public services, cut red tape and clamp down on welfare fraud.

Biometric Card Services, part of the Smurfit Kappa Group, has won the tender for the €18m contract.

The company — which is based in Bray, Co Wicklow — specialises in vouchers, revenue stamps, cheques, passports and other security-printed products.

The company declined to comment on what kind of biometric data the cards would be equipped to carry, and the Department of Social and Family Affairs could not specify either. The department says that Biometric Card Services will handle what it calls the “personalisation, distribution and customer handling” of the card system.

It also says the company will handle the “provision of associated card bureau services”.

“Other departments and agencies would also be in a position to use the card.

“A public service provider who uses the Public Service Card will be able to gain the benefits of card-based identity and authentication with minor changes to their systems,” the department said.

“The card can be distributed through multiple means such as the postal system, collected at public offices, etc.

“The method of distribution and location of delivery will depend on the circumstances of each applicant.”

It is not intended as a national identity card and the department says that such a card is a “wider issue”.

“It would require due consideration by the Government and the development and implementation of legislation to support any such policy.”

Mika's story; Canadian freeman tells of his callous assault at the hands of the Police




Violation of my common law rights by officer PC Attwood, badge number 9171 on January 28th at 2:30 to 3:30 PM on Clark street

During the road stop officer Attwood approached my van and I immediately reached down and turned on my Camera facing the window to document the incident, I informed him that reserved the right to record the road stop and he agreed then asked for my licence insurance and registration I told him that I don't carry any and in formed him that I was a sovereign human being under a common law jurisdiction and asked him if he could provide me with proof that I need them (Video Tape Starts) he asked me again and I asked the same question about showing me proof that I needed it. He then asked me to exit the vehicle and I told him I prefer to stay in the van and then I offered him my notice of understanding as a common law human being I wanted to remedy the situation by announcing my understanding of my common law jurisdiction. He asked me repeatedly to exit the van I told him no and at that point he told me I was under arrest ( which is arbitrary detention without cause since he had not made joinder with me as a person having not seen any identification ) He then proceeded to open my van door in a threatening manner to which I felt a great sense of duress .

I exited the van fearing for my safety and he led me away and out of camera shot. I stated that anything said or done at that point was under protest and duress. He then proceeded to tell me to turn around and I told him i did not consent to being handcuffed and that that was an assault on me.He ignored me and placed me in handcuffs . He had yet not seen any identification and was violating my rights by arbitrarily detaining me in shackles . He then reached into my coat pocket and pulled out my wallet even though I told him I would not consent to a search . He then opened my wallet against my wishes and pulled from it a card with my name on it. He asked me If I wanted a lawyer and I told him I would not consent to any council from the legal society. I told him that he had no right to detain me without first proving my identity and he said "I knew who you are". ( So that tells me he was waiting to entrap me since he pulled me over only minutes from my apartment. I told him that I was on my way to go look at a job and that he was costing me that job and then I said " there is no job is there ? " you guys got the phone number off the back of my van parked in front of my apartment and called me with a phony job quote so you could wait and stop me. He shuddered a second. I felt that he realized that I figured out his game. for the rest of the day the "customer" who had called me never called back to ask why I hadn't shown up. I then realized the number the "customer" used was always "private".

He then told me that I would not be arrested but that I needed to go sit in the back of the cruiser with my legs hanging out the back door which he stated was for both his and my safety since he didn't have a cage. He then started to think of things to charge me with and spoke each charge out loud. I told him again that I do not consent to being handcuffed in the back of the car and told him he was violating my common law rights as a human being and once again informed him of my fee schedule of $1000 dollars for arbitrary detention . He found this humorous and chuckled.

He then informed my that he was going to call a tow truck to come impound my van which I then told him that my van was my personal property held under a claim of right and that having it towed would be theft and another violattion of my common law rights as a sovereign human being. I told him I would not consent to having my van towed and he said oh I'm going to have it towed all right. I told him again I do not consent to having my property stolen. Then another undercover cruiser showed up and the officer approached the window . Officer PC attwood then asked the other officer not sure exactly how he worded it but "how he could take my camera".They mumbled somethng to each and made some sort of hand signs .

The other officer asked me why I was driving around without any ID . I told him that I had abandoned my social insurance number and had no government issued ID or a registration for the van which would obligate me to the motor vehicle act and i asked him if he understood Common law jurisdiction or the world freeman society . He said "millions of people know that you need a license to drive" . I told him only people who drive for commerce need a license and I told him I was travelling, and only a fool would register a car and turn it into a vehicle giving legal title to a faceless corporation. I then told them again that since it was not registered and was my paid for lawful property held under a claim of right that towing it would be stealing it from me. Officer Attwood then asked him another question about what other charges he could add to the growing list .

The other officer then went back to his car retrieved a screw driver and proceeded to remove the plates from the van . I told Officer Attwood that I had those under a claim of right to use so I wouldn't be travelling with no plates at all. He then told me that when the court makes a final judgement I will get my van back. I said well then I won't be travelling with any plates then after I get the van back, He said then you'll get pulled over again. I then asked him " You don't know anything about common law jurisdiction do you ? He said I have the right to remain silent.

I then sat and waited while the tow truck arrived . I asked PC Attwood where they would be taking the van and he said he would supply me with the companies business card , I asked him to also supply me with his business card and he agreed then didn't give me one. He then told me we would be done in a minute and I could go but we still sat there for more than ten minutes. He then circled the car and asked me to get out and turn my back to him . He removed the hand cuffs and handed me back my Notice of understanding, my wallet, and my van keys which he removed one of my ignition keys from . I told him again that I would not consent to having my van towed and that it was personal property held under a claim of right. He ignored me and then asked me to retrieve anything I wanted form the van before they took it away . so I went to look and all my tools in the back would have been impossible to carry so I was left no choice but to leave them all there . As a contractor I need both my Van and my tools so I was left with no means to conduct my own business which is another violation of my right to work and theft of all my tools and other possessions. They then gave me a Tow order and told me to sign it which I did with the words "under protest and duress" above the signature. They then gave the tow truck driver the okay to steal my personal property and told me to go. I turned to get a shot of the tow truck driving away with my van but the tape had run out. I then walked home and uploaded and published the video of the first two violations of my rights to you tube for evidence.

I intend to bring criminal charges against PC Attwood with a redress of grievances for theft of private property, fraud, gross negligence in not understanding the Law pertaining to a common law sovereign human being, assault for placing me in handcuffs without my consent and unlawful search and seizure with a warrant for lifting my wallet and searching through it for identification.

Th Bill for my fee schedule for arbitrary arrest and towing my van is $6000 total . For punitive damages of not having my Van and tools to provide myself with a living as a contractor I am suing for 10,000 a month. I will also be filing the aforementioned criminal charges against PC Attwood.

Study for my case against Attwood and the Niagara Police department and city of St Catharines Ontario.

Government will not be bonded when:

If a government does not eliminate its own internal malfeasance with the same diligence that it pursues civilian felons.

If a government rules by force without reason and or without the consent of the people which it governs. In such a case it shall be deemed a criminal government and its officials, officers, and clerks shall be deemed criminally malfeasant.

Look up "COMMON LAW LIENS"

Petition for a redress of greivances

Criminal acts and official officer or clerk who commits a criminal act or gross negligence of duty against a citizen or against the public generally shall

Lose his bond
not be protected by his official bond
shall not be protected by the limited liablility of the corporation , trust, or office of public trust which employs him.
Shall be personally liable for the damage ( financially responsible ) which that crime or gross negligence causes.
Must pay for the damage through his own real or personal property.

File a criminal complaint against the officer for a redress of grievances with a civil value noted on the complaint. PC Atwood badge number 9171

The criminal claim puts payment of the bond on hold and pierces the veil of corporate limited liablility exposing the officer to unlimited attachment of personal property unless he is prosecuted and vindicated by prosecution.

If the prosecutor does not agree to prosecute the case within thirty days or such time as is reasonable for investigation of the charges ( not to exceed 60 days without reasonable cause then the matter reverts to a civil actions standing half inside and half outside the corporate veil with the bonding company , the corporation and the officer liable for the damages ( who do you think they will make take the fall ? )

Principle ignorance of the law is not an allowable excuse for a law enforcement officer to use when exercising the power to enforce the law.

An officer must know and understand all the processes which must be bonded before he can act on an execution of judgement.

look up"judicatio statutes"

A statute has no social authority, or the capacity to be enforced without an author and has no author without the assumption of social liability or financial responsibility for the staute authored.

Any attempt to exercise social authority by enforcing a statute wihtout assuming a corresponding measure of social liability for the enforcement of the statute constitutes fraud.

A government or an official, officer or clerk of a government will lose it's/his bond, will not be bonded if a person, hereinafter reffered to as the "prisoner" which it/he handles who has been charged and arrested but who has not been convicted.

1.) has been denied or delayed anything . or any right , or the equal protection of the law necessary for the prisoners defense which an uncharged and unarrested citizen would have at his use, service and disposal .

2.) Has been denied or delayed legal paperwork in the prisoners case including but not limited to affidavits of accusation , police reports, arrest warrants, mailing addresses for the delivery of all paperwork etc.

3.)has been denied or delayed the counsel of , or commuication with any lawyer, attorney, spouse, relative, non-union paralegal, non union lawyer etc. needed for his personal safety and legal defense.

Global supply of rare earth elements could be wiped out by 2012

(NaturalNews) It's the bubble you've probably never heard of: The rare earth bubble. And it's due to pop in 2012, potentially devastating the industries of western nations that depend on these rare elements.

What industries are those? The automobile industry uses tens of thousands of tons of rare earth elements each year, and advanced military technology depends on these elements, too. Lots of "green" technologies depend on them, including wind turbines, low-energy light bulbs and hybrid car batteries. In fact, much of western civilization depends on rare earth elements such as terbium, lanthanumneodymium. and

So what's the problem with these rare elements? 97 percent of the world's supply comes from mines in China, and China is prepared to simply stop exporting these strategic elements to the rest of the world by 2012.

If that happens, the western world will be crippled by the collapse of available rare earth elements. Manufacturing of everything from computers and electronics to farm machinery will grind to a halt. Electronics will disappear from the shelves and prices for manufactured goods that depend on these rare elements will skyrocket.

These 17 rare earth elements (REE) -- all of which are metals -- are strategic resources upon which entire nations are built. In many ways, they are similar to rubber -- a resource so valuable and important to the world that many experts call it the "fourth most important natural resource in the world," right after water, steel and oil. Without rubber, you couldn't drive your car to work or water your lawn. Many medical technologies would cease to work and virtually all commercial construction would grind to a halt.

Many of the strategic battles fought in World War II were fought, in fact, over control of rubber, most of which now comes through Singapore and its surrounding regions (Malaysia and Indonesia).

Global shortage of Rare Earth Elements coming...

Now, by threatening to cut off the world's supply of rare earth elements, China appears to be attempting to monopolize this extremely important strategic resource. According to information received by The Independent, by 2012 China may cease all exports of rare earth elements, reserving them for its own economic expansion.

An article in that paper quotes REE expert Jack Lifton as saying, "A real crunch is coming. In America, Britain and elsewhere we have not yet woken up to the fact that there is an urgent need to secure the supply of rare earths from sources outside China."

And yet virtually no one has heard of this problem! People are familiar with peak oil, global warming, ocean acidification, the national debt and the depletion of fossil water, but very few are aware of the looming crisis in rare metals... upon which much of western civilization rests.

For those who still aren't convinced this is a big deal, consider this: Without rare earth elements, we would have no iPhones. Yeah, I know. That's a disaster, huh?

We would have no fiber optic cables, either. No X-ray machines, no car stereos and no high-tech missile guidance systems for the military. And here's the real kicker: No electric motors.

Demand outstrips supply

The problem with the supply of rare earth elements is that demand has skyrocketed over the last decade from 40,000 tons to 120,000 tons. Meanwhile, China has been cutting its exports. Now, it only exports about 30,000 tons a year -- only one-fourth of the demand the world needs.

In order to build more "green" technologies, the world will need 200,000 tons of rare earth elements by 2014, predicts The Independent. Yet China now threatens to drop exports to exactly zero tons by 2012.

It isn't hard to do the math on this: Without China's exports, the western world will quickly run out of rare earth elements.

Kiss your "green" wind turbines good-bye. And your Toyota Prius production lines, too. No more iPhones and iPods either. Without these rare earth elements, entire industries grind to a halt.

Can we mine it elsewhere?

China isn't the only geographic region where these rare earth elements are found, but constructing mines to pull these elements out of the ground takes many years. Some mines are under construction right now in other countries that could help fill the demand for REEs, but making them operational is "five to ten years away," says Lifton.

That means these other mines won't really be operational until 2015 - 2020. Meanwhile, China could cut off its supply in 2012. That leaves a 3-7 year gap in which these rare earth elements will be in disastrously short supply.

This brings up a couple of very important realizations related to investments:

It is almost certain that the prices for rare earth elements will skyrocket over the next 2 - 5 years. This creates a huge investment opportunity for people willing to take a risk and bet their money on rising prices of these metals.

There's another big investment opportunity here, too: Recycling rare earth elements. As prices leap higher, it will become more economically feasible to harvest rare earth elements out of garbage dumps and landfills where people are discarding electronics such as motors, computers, sound systems and other such items.

Some smart entrepreneur will no doubt make a fortune by setting up and operating a rare earth element reclamation operation of some kind. These elements, after all, aren't destroyed when they're thrown away. They sit around in the trash for eons, just waiting to be reclaimed and re-used.

Lead, for example, is a metal that is successfully recycled today. Something like 85% of all the lead used in America today is reclaimed out of lead-acid batteries and other similar devices. If similar programs could be initiated for the rare metals, we could go a long way towards meeting society's demand for these elements without having to keep mining them out of the ground.

Because let's face it: Mining these rare earth elements is a very DIRTY business. That's part of the contradiction in "green" technologies, by the way: To manufacture them, you need rare metals mined out of ecologically disastrous operations in China. It's the (literal) "dirty little secret" of the green industry. All these wind turbines, solar panels, hybrid car batteries and fiber optics may seem green to the consumer, but behind them there's a very dirty mining business that rapes the planet and pollutes the rivers in order to recover these "green" rare metals.

In any case, unless scientists find less-rare alternatives to many of these rare earth metals, we are looking at a serious global supply crunch for the years 2012 - 2020. Add the "rare earth elements bubble" to your list of other bubbles to watch out for in the years ahead.

Some of the 17 rare earth elements

Dysprosium - Makes electric motor magnets 90% lighter

Terbium - Makes electric lights 80% more efficient

Neodymium - Used in motor magnets

Lanthanum - Used for hydrogen storage

Praseodymium - Used in lasers and ceramic materials

Gadolinium - Used to manufacture computer memory

Erbium - Used in the manufacture of vanadium steel

Ytterbium - Used to make infrared lasers

The Amish are much healthier than the rest of America

(NaturalNews) They're known for using horse-drawn buggies, avoiding modern conveniences, and wearing old-fashioned clothing. But do the Amish possess something that the rest of us don't, primarily a lifestyle that prevents disease and leads to a better quality of life? According to a recent study published in the journal Cancer Causes and Control, that seems to be the case; cancer rates among the Amish are far lower than in the rest of the American population and they are far healthier than most Americans.

Researchers from Ohio State University's James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute originally began studying the Ohio Amish population with the hypothesis that cancer rates would be higher among the Amish because they are closed off from society and they often intermarry. On the contrary, it was discovered that not only are their cancer rates lower but the Amish live a lifestyle that promotes health and well-being.

The study found that the cancer rate among the Amish is only 60 percent of the Ohio population at large. Most Amish people do not smoke or drink and they are typically not sexually promiscuous, leading researchers to believe that these lifestyle factors play an important role in the limited number of cancer cases.

Other factors examined include the high amount of physical labor undertaken by the Amish. Most Amish people work in farming, construction, and other production jobs that require intense physical activity that keeps them healthy and in shape. While the rest of America sits in fluorescent-lit cubicles all day, the Amish work hard to produce crops, build furniture and structures, and produce useful goods, which researchers recognize contributes to their excellent health.

Another important factor not specifically examined in the study is the fact that the Amish grow and raise all their own food. They employ time-tested, organic methods that provide them with healthy fruits, vegetables, milk, meat, and other untainted foods that most Americans never get. Rich in living enzymes, vitamins, and nutrients Amish food is grown and raised the way it should be, resulting in improved health.

While some may ridicule their secluded lifestyle, the Amish commitment to simple, productive lives and clean, local food is benefiting their health in ways that the rest of America can only dream about. When compared to a life of sitting in office buildings all day, eating processed and genetically-modified junk food, and popping prescription medications, it becomes clear which lifestyle is truly deserving of contempt.

Rudd delays Indigenous progress report

ABC January 30, 2010, 10:13 am

Federal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott says Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has broken his promise to give an update on Indigenous progress on the first day of Parliament for the year.

Two years ago, Mr Rudd said making the annual statement on the first working day would greatly increase pressure on his Government to make progress towards closing the life expectancy gap between Indigenous and other Australians.

But instead of giving his report on the first day next Tuesday, Mr Rudd will use a date closer to the anniversary of his apology to Indigenous Australians.

Mr Abbott has questioned if the issue is still as important to Mr Rudd.

"It was very wrong of the Prime Minister to grandstand in this way with Indigenous people if he's going to let them down by not keeping [his promise]," he said.

"The fact that he's not having these statements on the first day of the parliament suggests that the issue isn't really as important to him as he suggested back on apology day."

Greens Senator Rachel Siewert says she is concerned Mr Rudd is not giving the statement the prominence it would have had on the first day of sittings.

"Doing it on the first day of Parliament puts it front and centre and means its high on the Government's and the prime minister's agenda," she said.

"I fail to see why he isn't reporting on that day, other than he feels that its not top of his priority any more.

"Perhaps they haven't made as much progress as he was thinking they might at the time."
