Congressman Paul took to the House floor on Thursday to oppose H.R. 2194, the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability and Divestment Act, and he warned against the war propaganda being spread in the House.

Just as the US did in 2002 with the GOPS and Iraq, Congress has just passed the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability and Divestment Act. Once again we see the same propaganda coming from the Gov. that brought us to Iraq, being repeated by the Dems as they work towards war with Iran. All of this because of possible WMD’s in Iran. Doesn’t matter that the CIA already has said they aren’t building them. Its like deja vu…...

Iranian President Ahmadinejad Calls for UN to Conduct New 9/11 Investigation

Posted on Apr 12, 2010 in Police, Military, & War

Hayden’s Note:

While I am painfully aware that there is a possibility Ahmadinejad is expertly using the “art of war” in his speeches and requests, I can’t help but think he could be showing all of his cards in an honest “last move.”  He knows that IF Israel and the US engage Iran in warfare, he is toast.  The entire country will be toast.  As much as he brags about being able to defend against Israel, we all know he can’t and so does he.  Is he throwing everyone under the bus, so to speak, because he knows his ship is about to go down in flames?

If I were in his position, I would be declaring every single state secret I knew about my enemies and publicly outting them.  While he lacks the military strength to actually fight an all out, sustained war, his words will echo  through American and European minds for a decade.  Add to that, if an independant investigation were to occur of 9/11 and find some American interests at fault (for complacency, negligence, or even out-right being an accomplice), it would shatter any support there was for America. ...

Proof that Regulators Knew of and Allowed Debt-Hiding Accounting Tricks Like Lehman’s Repo 105

Posted on Apr 05, 2010 in Economic News

Source: Washington’s Blog

Hayden’s Note:

Sadly, this article does not surprise or startle me in the slightest.  Not one bit.  To me, this is all common knowledge.  I read this and think to myself, “Well….duh!”  I’m glad to see it printed in more publicized places and being talked about.  Eventually, I foresee many, many people going to jail.  Granted, these people will be the low-level regulators and the scapegoats.  Geithner and Bernanke will never see the inside of a jail cell, unfortunately.

Regulators like the Fed and SEC have said they didn’t know about Lehman’s use of Repo 105s to hide its mountain of debt.

But in a must-read New York Times Op-Ed, law school professors Susan P. Koniak, George M. Cohen, David A. Dana, and Thomas Ross point out:

Our bank regulators were not, as they would like us to believe, outside the disco, deaf and blind to the revelry going on within. They were bouncing to the same beat. In 2006, the agencies jointly published something called the “Interagency Statement on Sound Practices Concerning Elevated Risk Complex Structured Finance Activities.” It became official policy the following year.

The Road to Armageddon

The Road to Armageddon

By Paul Craig Roberts
Information Clearing House

The Washington Times is a newspaper that looks with favor upon the Bush/Cheney/Obama/neocon wars of aggression in the Middle East and favors making terrorists pay for 9/11. Therefore, I was surprised to learn on February 24 that the most popular story on the paper’s website for the past three days was the “Inside the Beltway” report, “Explosive News,” about the 31 press conferences in cities in the US and abroad on February 19 held by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, an organization of professionals which now has 1,000 members.

I was even more surprised that the news report treated the press conference seriously.
How did three World Trade Center skyscrapers suddenly disintegrate into fine dust? How did massive steel beams in three skyscrapers suddenly fail as a result of short-lived, isolated, and low temperature fires? “A thousand architects and engineers want to know, and are calling on Congress to order a new investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7,” reports the Washington Times.

The paper reports that the architects and engineers have concluded that the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the National Institute of Standards and Technology provided “insufficient, contradictory and fraudulent accounts of the circumstances of the towers’ destruction” and are “calling for a grand jury investigation of NIST officials.”

The newspaper reports that Richard Gage, the spokesperson for the architects and engineers said: “Government officials will be notified that ‘Misprision of Treason,’ U.S....

Arrested Terrorist Leader Exposes Extensive CIA Connections

Posted on Feb 26, 2010 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Featured Articles

The leader of a Pakistan based terrorist organisation closely affiliated with Al Qaeda has detailed how his group benefited from extensive political and financial support from the CIA in return for continued attacks against the government, the people and the infrastructure of Iran.

Abdolmalek Rigi, the leader of the Pakistan-based Jundullah terrorist organization was captured earlier this week by Iranian security officials in the south of the country.

Rigi was tracked by Iranian intelligence when he boarded a flight from Dubai to Kyrgyzstan on Tuesday.

According to officials, Rigi was using a forged Afghan passport which was issued to him by the U.S. government.

The 31-year-old terror leader issued a statement on Iranian state TV yesterday, during which he alleged that he had made a pact with the U.S. for safe haven and unlimited military aid to pursue terrorist activities against the Iranian government.

“They said they would cooperate with us and will give me military equipment, arms and machine guns. They also promised to give us a base along the border with Afghanistan next to Iran,” Rigi said....

Iran Signs Billion-Euro Gas Deal with Germany

Posted on Jan 21, 2010 in Economic News

Source: AFP

Iran has signed a one-billion-euro (1.44-billion-dollar) deal with a German firm to build 100 gas turbo-compressors, an industry official said in newspapers on Wednesday.

The contract provides for the unnamed German firm to transfer the know-how to build, install and run the equipment needed to exploit and transport gas, said Iran’s Gas Engineering and Development Company head, Ali Reza Gharibi.

The German company has already delivered 45 such turbo-compressors to Iran, Gharibi said, according to Iran Daily. Industry experts said he was apparently referring to Siemens.

But the National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) denied the signing of a deal.

“Following a report about a one-billion-Euro contract between Iran and Germany, the public relation of NIGC denied this,” it said on its website.

The NIGC spoke of a contract with an “Iranian company to build 100 turbo-compressors in Iran using a foreign partner’s know-how,” without naming the firms.

The reported 2010-2015 deal for material not under an international embargo comes as the Islamic republic faces the threat of new financial, technological and international trade sanctions over its disputed nuclear programme....

Israeli Attack on Iran Could be Disaster — for U.S. Economy

Posted on Jan 18, 2010 in Economic News

Baltimore Sun – Israel will not be complicit in a second Holocaust. If Iran or any other nation that has called for the destruction of Israel is about to acquire nuclear weapons, the Israelis will attempt to destroy that nation’s uranium-enrichment facilities. In June 1981, Israel launched a successful air attack on an Iraqi nuclear reactor, and in 2007 it bombed a Syrian factory suspected of producing plutonium warheads.

But Americans should be aware that when Iran becomes the next target, it will be a blow to the U.S. economic recovery.

In an effort to prevent a military resolution to the problem, the nuclear club has tried to persuade Iran to stop its weapons program. But President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad responded recently by threatening to build 10 new enrichment sites. There is no evidence that sanctions will persuade Mr. Ahmadinejad to abandon the opportunity he foresees to destroy his hated enemy. That leaves Israel with no choice.

The economic repercussions of an attack will be far reaching and painful. The price of oil will quickly shoot through the roof. Judging by what happened in 1973, the price could easily go above $300 a barrel in the short term....

Iran Condemned by West for Test Firing Rocket – But Russia is Allowed to Fire Blue Swirly, UFO-like Rockets Over Norway

Posted on Dec 16, 2009 in Global & National News

[Hayden’s Note: It’s amazing… Iran is condemned for test-firing a rocket and yet Russia is allowed to fire crazy, blue swirling, UFO-like rockets into the night sky anytime they wish with no reprimand.  The latest series of rocket tests by Russia has created an odd, blue swirl in the sky over Norway and frightening some nearby residents… but do they get international scrutiny?  No.]

Source: TimesOnline

Western governments united to denounce Iran’s test-firing of a long-range ballistic missile yesterday, warning that it would only increase international determination to press for more sanctions on Tehran if it refused to negotiate over its nuclear programme.

Gordon Brown led the call for stricter sanctions, calling the missile test a cause for serious concern that drew further into question Iran’s professed peaceful intentions over its nuclear programme.

The United States, France and Germany joined in the condemnation. Germany called the test alarming, and France described it as “a very bad signal to the international community”.

The first test of an improved version of the Sejil-2 missile, which is capable of reaching Israel and US bases in the Gulf, was reported early yesterday in a one-sentence announcement on Iranian state television, accompanied by a clip showing the missile rising from the launch pad in a cloud of smoke....

By Sabrina Eaton, The Plain Dealer

Dennis Kucinich‘s proposed congressional effort to end the Afghanistan war has gained a dozen bipartisan cosponsors during the week the Cleveland Democrat has circulated it.

Here’s the cosponsor list provided by Kucinich’s office: John Conyers, Jr.; (D-MI); Ron E. Paul (R-TX); Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD); Bob Filner (D-CA); Walter Jones, Jr. (R-NC); Lynn Woolsey (D-CA); Edward Whitfield (R-KY); Michael Capuano (D-MA); Timothy V. Johnson (R-IL); Raúl M. Grijalva (D-AZ); Eric Massa (D-NY); and Alan Grayson (D-FL).

“At a time when 15 milllion people are unemployed we cannot continue spending hundreds of billions of dollars on disastrous wars,” Kucinich said in a press release. “My resolution will force a debate and vote on the war in Afghanistan. Congress must reassert its constitutional authority to start and end wars.”

Kucinich’s office said a similar privileged resolution to end the war in Pakistan will be introduced at a later date. Privileged resolutions require a House of Representatives debate within 15 days of introduction.

Iran Doctor Who Blew Whistle on Torture Was Poisoned to Death

Posted on Dec 02, 2009 in Global & National News

December 02, 2009

(FOX News ….bleh ) — A doctor who exposed the torture of jailed protesters in Iran died of poisoning from an overdose of a blood pressure drug in a salad, prosecutors say. The findings fueled opposition fears that he was killed because of what he knew.

Investigators are still trying to determine whether his death was a suicide or murder, Tehran’s public prosecutor Abbas Dowlatabadi said, according to the state news agency IRNA.

The 26-year-old doctor, Ramin Pourandarjani, died on Nov. 10 in mysterious circumstances — with authorities initially saying he was in a car accident, had a heart attack or committed suicide.

Pourandarjani was a doctor at Kahrizak, a prison on Tehran’s outskirts where hundreds of opposition protesters were taken after being arrested in the crackdown following June’s disputed presidential elections. The facility became so notorious that it was ordered shut down by Iran’s supreme leader as reports of abuse and torture became an embarassment to the clerical rulers and security forces.

Pourandarjani later testified to a parliamentary committee and reportedly told them that one young protester he treated died from heavy torture....

Feds Seize 4 Mosques & 5th Ave. Skyscraper “Linked to Iran”

Posted on Nov 13, 2009 in Global & National News

[Hayden’s Note: As you read this article, be mindful of the propaganda that has been and continues to surround Iran and Muslims in order to trump up support for a failing foreign policy.  I do not believe for one second that Govt officials are “afraid of backlash” from the Muslim community.   By seizing four mosques, it’s a quick way to make many, many moderate Muslims turn into radical extremists.   Even those who are not Iranian or effected by the seizure will view it as a damning move by the US Govt.  Just think about it….and read on.]

Mosque ForfeitureNEW YORK – Federal prosecutors took steps Thursday to seize four U.S. mosques and a Fifth Avenue skyscraper owned by a nonprofit Muslim organization long suspected of being secretly controlled by the Iranian government.

In what could prove to be one of the biggest counterterrorism seizures in U.S. history, prosecutors filed a civil complaint in federal court against the Alavi Foundation, seeking the forfeiture of more than $500 million in assets.

The assets include bank accounts; Islamic centers consisting of schools and mosques in New York City, Maryland, California and Houston; more than 100 acres in Virginia; and a 36-story glass office tower in New York....

Fort Hood Truth … Finally.

Posted on Nov 10, 2009 in Police, Military, & War

Foreign-Policy Blowback at Ft. Hood
by Jacob G. Hornberger, November 10, 2009

Amidst all the debate over whether the Ft. Hood killer is a terrorist, murderer, enemy combatant, traitor, sleeper agent, or insane person, there is one glaring fact staring America in the face: what happened at Ft. Hood is more blowback from U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, specifically the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. Even at this early stage of the investigation, the evidence is virtually conclusive that the accused killer, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, was motivated to kill U.S. soldiers at Ft. Hood by deep anger and rage arising from the things that the U.S. government has been doing to people in the Middle East for many years.

Oh, I can already hear the interventionists exclaiming, “You’re a justifier! You’re justifying what he did!”

Isn’t that what they said after the 9/11 attacks, when we libertarians pointed out that those attacks were motivated by the deep anger and rage that had boiled over in the Middle East because of what the U.S. government had been doing to people there?...

Top Iranian Commanders Assassinated

Posted on Oct 20, 2009 in Police, Military, & War

Source: Reuters Iran’s Revolutionary Guards accused “foreign elements” linked to the United States of involvement in Sunday’s attack that killed at least two senior commanders of the elite force, state television reported. “Surely foreign elements, particularly those linked to the global arrogance, were involved in this attack,” a Guards statement quoted by television said. Iran often uses the term “global arrogance” to refer to the United States, its old foe."
