Please watch these videos. You have to see this with your own eyes:

- Manchurian Candidate: Elite Puppet Mind-Control ‘Presidential Model’ Barack Obama (Videos):

Obama signs the wrong year in the guestbook at Westminster Abbey (and before that he had to ask for the date).

In another video Obama claims that he has visited 57 states.

And … the constitution was written ’20 centuries’ ago.

And … Obama: ‘Countries like Europe’ ???

Now you understand that Obama simply doesn’t know better.

And if you you still haven’t found enough compassion for President Obama, then please watch this:

Barack Obama has a public diplomacy disaster on his hands

- Polish PM blasts Barack Obama’s death camp statement for its ‘ignorance, lack of knowledge, bad intentions’ (Telegraph, May 30, 2012):

America’s liberal ‘mainstream’ media has largely ignored the diplomatic firestorm which has resulted from Barack Obama’s reference to a “Polish death camp” at a White House awards ceremony yesterday. But to say that this has been a public relations disaster for the Obama administration would be an understatement.

The Polish government, one of Washington’s most important allies in Europe, has reacted with undisguised fury to the president’s crass and insulting words. In a highly unusual move for a close US ally, the Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk has issued a harshly-worded rebuke to Barack Obama, underscoring the intense displeasure of the Poles over a highly sensitive issue. The White House has still not apologised for the president’s comments, but I suspect an apology may be forthcoming as anger builds across the Atlantic as well as at home among the 10 million-strong Polish American community in the United States.

Here is Tusk’s statement in full:

Prime Minister Donald Tusk’s statement on the speech of US President Barack Obama, Chancellery of the Prime Minister, 30th of May 2012.

The words uttered yesterday by the President of the United States Barack Obama concerning “Polish death camps” touched all Poles. We always react in the same way when ignorance, lack of knowledge, bad intentions lead to such a distortion of history, so painful for us here in Poland, in a country which suffered like no other in Europe during World War II.

- Fukushima, Washington Hides ‘Black Swan’ of Economic Collapse (Beacon Equity Research, May 25, 2012):

As the sovereign debt crisis in Europe dominates media coverage of both financial and main street news, Washington’s deliberate cover up of a far more serious threat to the global economy stemming from the continuing crisis at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant (beginning on Mar. 11, 2011) is now seeping out more rapidly from sources outside the captured and complicit mainstream news outlets.“You can’t stop the truth from leaking out about Fukushima, and [President] Obama actually came out with a statement at the start of this disaster and said that their nuclear experts did not feel that harmful levels of radiation would reach our shores,” Nuked Radio host Christina Consolo told TruNews.

Due to increasing reports of nuclear contamination found in pollen across the U.S. West Coast, babies with elevated becquerel levels of nearly 10 times normal (presumably from mother’s milk), and a statistically unusual number of children with flu-like symptoms who won’t respond to conventional medical protocol, the truth about Fukushima could easily break out into a national panic significant enough to trigger an economic collapse of the U.S. economy and dollar, according to Consolo.

That’s “what we found from Freedom of Information Act requests . . . transmissions between the U.S. government, the Chinese, the Russians and the Japanese from the beginning of the disaster until now, and that includes NRC (National Regulatory Commission) transcripts of phone calls,” Consolo explained.

“They were well aware of high the levels were, and that they were coming over here,” she added.  “In fact, infants in California were exposed to 40,000 becquerels (symbol Bq: the human body has 4,400 Bq, on average, from decaying potassium) of iodine 131—that causes thyroid cancer—from Mar. 17 to the beginning of April.”

The new smartphone, developed by Softbank Corp, is believed to be the first of its kind to contain inbuilt radiation sensor chips designed to measure radiation exposure by the hour.

The mobile phone, which will go on sale this summer, is also able to keep track of each location tested by the user for radiation levels, in order to create a wider picture of Japan’s atomic hot spots.

Romney-Birth-Certificate (PDF)

- Romney’s birth certificate evokes his father’s controversy (Reuters, May 29, 2012):

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Finally, there is definitive proof: The presidential candidate was born in the United States, and his father was not.

Yes, Republican Mitt Romney appears eligible to be president, according to a copy of Romney’s birth certificate released to Reuters by his campaign. Willard Mitt Romney, the certificate says, was born in Detroit on March 12, 1947.

His mother, Lenore, was born in Utah and his father, former Michigan governor and one-time Republican presidential candidate George Romney, was born in Mexico.

So on a day when real estate and media mogul Donald Trump was trying to help Mitt Romney by stirring up a new round of questions about whether Democratic President Barack Obama was born in the United States, Romney’s own birth record became a reminder that in the 1968 presidential campaign, his father had faced his own “birther” controversy.

It seems the Muppets have been well-and-truly Oscar’d this time. Combining Goldman’s once-in-a-lifetime equity buying opportunity position recommendation with their short Treasuries trade has produced an astoundingly un-positive return of -29% in just 48 days (based on SPY (stocks) and TBT (ultra-short TSYs given duration and beta).

- Greek Pensioner Hangs Himself In Protest That “Greece Will Be Wiped Off The Map” (ZeroHedge, May 30, 2012):

Two months ago, an elderly Greek took his life in broad daylight in Athens’ central square while decrying the country’s traitors in government, and who preferred to take his own life than to defer his debts to his children or “fishing through garbage cans for his sustenance.” Hours ago, another tragedy struck.

From Athens News:

A 61-year old pensioner was found hanging from a tree on Wednesday, in the Agios Filipos park of the Nikaia area. The lifeless body of the pensioner was discovered by a park attendant, who also found his suicide note which read as follows:

“The police does not know me. I have never touched a drink in my life. Of women and drugs I have never even dreamed of. I have never been to a kafenio (coffee house), I just worked all day! But I commited one horrendous crime: I became a professional at age 40 and I plunged myself in debt. Now, I’m an idiot of 61 years and I have to pay. I hope my grandchildren are not born in Greece, seeing as there will be no Greeks here from now on. Let them at least know another language, because Greek will be wiped off the map! Unless of course there was a politician with Thatcher’s balls so as to put us and our state in line.

Signed, Alexandros 29/5/2012”

His neighbours described the pensioner – a father of two- as a hard working man. He had been employed in ship repairs and construction sites and up until recently, he had been working as an electrician on a merchant ship.

He was facing sizeable financial problems and it was these that pushed him over the edge.

According to neighbours, prior to taking his own life, he was seen wearing his work overalls, carrying his tools and sitting on a bench in the park.

Tragic.

- The Second Act Of The JPM CIO Fiasco Has Arrived – Mismarking Hundreds Of Billions In Credit Default Swaps (ZeroHedge, May 30, 2012):

As anyone who has ever traded CDS (or any other OTC, non-exchange traded product) knows, when you have a short risk position, unless compliance tells you to and they rarely do as they have no idea what CDS is most of the time, you always mark the EOD price at the offer, and vice versa, on long risk positions, you always use the bid. That way the P&L always looks better. And for portfolios in which the DV01 is in the hundreds of thousands of dollars (or much, much more if your name was Bruno Iksil), marking at either side of an illiquid market can result in tens if not hundreds of millions of unrealistic profits booked in advance, simply to make one’s book look better, mostly for year end bonus purposes. Apparently JPM’s soon to be fired Bruno Iksil was no stranger to this: as Bloomberg reports, JPM’s CIO unit “was valuing some of its trades at  prices that differed from those of its investment bank, according to people familiar with the matter. The discrepancy between prices used by the chief investment office and JPMorgan’s credit-swaps dealer, the biggest in the U.S., may have obscured by hundreds of millions of dollars the magnitude of the loss before it was disclosed May 10, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because they aren’t authorized to discuss the matter.I’ve never run into anything like that,” said Sanford C. Bernstein & Co.’s Brad Hintz in New York. “That’s why you have a centralized accounting group that’s comparing marks” between different parts of the bank “to make sure you don’t have any outliers,” said the former chief financial officer of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.” Continue reading »

- Security backdoor found in China-made US military chip (InformationAge, May 28, 2012):

Cambridge University researchers find that a microprocessor used by the US military but made in China contains secret remote access capability UPDATED

A microchip used by the US military and manufactured in China contains a secret “backdoor” that means it can be shut off or reprogrammed without the user knowing, according to researchers at Cambridge University’s Computing Laboratory.

UPDATE: However, one security consultancy has said that the implication that the backdoor might have been secretly inserted by the Chinese manufacturer is “bogus”, and that malicious intent is unlikely.

In a draft paper, Cambridge University researcher Sergei Skorobogatov wrote that the chip in question is widely used in military and industrial applications. The “backdoor” means it is “wide open to intellectual property theft, fraud and reverse engineering of the design to allow the introduction of a backdoor or Trojan”, they said.

- US troops imitate invasion of Iran with Arab allies (RT, May 29, 2012):

Around 12,000 troops from more than 19 nations are wrapping up a massive military training drill in the Middle East. But for some of those servicemen, these exercises might be just the beginning of something much bigger to come.

The United States, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan are just a sampling of the many countries — along with European allies — that have been involved in the nearly month-long Eager Lion 2012 exercise expected to end this week. Although much of the drills have been kept under wraps, it isn’t a secret that these states have spent the last month cooperating together through mock combat drills and comprehensive training. Some sources overseas report, however, that as many as 3,000 troops aligned with US forces have conducted a simulated landing and attack on Iran, preparing America and its allies for a war that becomes more likely by the day.

Intelligence sources speaking to Israel’s Debka news agency report that US troops and other forces aligned with America recently staged a landing on a Jordanian beach that was immediately followed by a military seizure of fortified mountain bases and command posts. The exercise was meant to emulate an attack on Iran and accompanies other drills that witnesses say show off just what America’s foes face if they continue to put the heat on the United States and its pals abroad.

Although the race has been essentially over for weeks, Romney finally cleared the benchmark of 1,144 delegates needed to become the Republicans’ presidential candidate after a long, bitter primary battle with a host of conservative rivals.

He will be formally nominated at the Republicans’ convention in Florida in late August.

- Obama personally oversees Al-Qaeda ‘kill list’: report (AFP, May 29, 2012):

US President Barack Obama has personally overseen a top-secret process for determining which Al-Qaeda suspects should be placed on a “kill list,” the New York Times reported Tuesday.

The Times, citing dozens of top officials and former advisers, said the administration had developed what it termed the “kill list” as part of a stepped-up drone war against Al-Qaeda and its affiliates in Pakistan and Yemen.

“He is determined that he will make these decisions about how far and wide these operations will go,” it quoted National Security Adviser Thomas Donilon as saying.

“His view is that he’s responsible for the position of the United States in the world… He’s determined to keep the tether pretty short.”

The Times described the top-secret process, which begins with some 100 counter-terrorism officials sifting through biographies and “nominating” suspects in Yemen and Somalia to be added to the kill list during a secure video conference run by the Pentagon.

The CIA carries out a separate process for suspects in Pakistan, it said.

The nominations then go to Obama, who signs off on every strike in Yemen and Somalia and also on especially complex and risky strikes in Pakistan — about a third of the total, the Times said.

Obama personally approves the killing of top suspects, such as Qaeda preacher Anwar al-Awlaqi — a US citizen — who was killed by a US drone strike in Yemen last year.

- RIT Capital Partners, Chaired By Lord Rothschild, And Rockefeller & Co. Announce Strategic Partnership (MarketWatch, May 30, 2012):

LONDON and NEW YORK, May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — RIT Capital Partners plc (“RIT”), chaired by Lord (Jacob) Rothschild, and Rockefeller Financial Services, Inc., the parent company of Rockefeller & Co., Inc., today announced the creation of a strategic partnership that brings together two of the most recognised and respected names in the investing world.

David Rockefeller, honorary director and retired chairman of Rockefeller & Co., stated: “Lord Rothschild and I have known each other for five decades. The connection between our two families remains very strong. I am delighted to welcome Jacob and RIT as shareholders and partners in the ongoing development of our investment management and wealth advisory businesses.”

In acquiring the 37% equity interest previously held by Societe Generale Private Banking, RIT will become a significant minority investor in Rockefeller Financial Services, Inc. alongside the Rockefeller family, related entities and the management team. The firms intend to collaborate on investment solutions and other areas of shared expertise to further serve the needs of their clients and investors.

RIT is a London-listed investment trust with net assets of some 1.9 billion pounds Sterling. In March 2012, RIT announced a partnership with Edmond de Rothschild Group (“EdR”) through which EdR become shareholders in RIT alongside Lord Rothschild’s family interests. Baroness Ariane de Rothschild became Honorary Vice Chairman of RIT, with Lord Rothschild becoming Honorary Vice Chairman of Edmond de Rothschild SA, the French holding company of Edmond de Rothschild Group.

- Rothschilds buy into Rockefeller wealth business (Reuters, May 30. 2012):

Two of the most glamorous names in global finance are linking up, with the Rothschild banking dynasty agreeing to buy a stake in the Rockefeller group’s wealth and asset management business to get a long-sought foothold in the United States.

Rothschild’s London-listed RIT Capital Partners (RCP.L) said on Wednesday it was buying the 37 percent stake from French group Societe Generale’s (SOGN.PA) private banking arm for an undisclosed sum.

The transatlantic union brings together David Rockefeller, 96, and Jacob Rothschild, 76 – two family patriarchs whose personal relationship spans five decades.

Rockefeller & Co traces its origins back to 1882 when it was founded as one of the world’s first family offices by John D. Rockefeller to manage his personal wealth.

Since then it has developed into a wealth advisory group administering assets of $34 billion.

The Rothschild banking dynasty began when Mayer Amschel Rothschild started a business in Frankfurt in the late 18th century.

The Zimbabwe president, accused of ethnic cleansing and bankrupting his country, asked to champion tourism

- Robert Mugabe asked to be UN ‘leader for tourism’ (Guardian, May 29, 2012):

With a line-up that includes Drew Barrymore, David Beckham, Orlando Bloom, and Ricky Martin, the UN’s choice of ambassadors has been known to cause raised eyebrows or the odd smirk.

Seldom, however, has there been such anger, or questioning of the organisation’s credibility, as that greeting the appointment of a new international envoy for tourism: Robert Mugabe.

Improbable as it seems, the Zimbabwean president, who is widely accused of ethnic cleansing, rigging elections, terrorising opposition, controlling media and presiding over a collapsed economy, has been endorsed as a champion of efforts to boost global holidaymaking.

Despite that fact Mugabe, 88, is under a travel ban, he has been honoured as a “leader for tourism” by the UN’s World Tourism Organisation, along with his political ally, Zambian president Michael Sata, 75. The pair signed an agreement with UNWTO secretary general Taleb Rifai at their shared border at Victoria Falls on Tuesday.

And …

‘War is Peace’


To avoid counting civilian deaths, Obama re-defined “militant” to mean “all military-age males in a strike zone”

- “Militants”: media propaganda (Salon, May 29, 2012):

Virtually every time the U.S. fires a missile from a drone and ends the lives of Muslims, Americanmediaoutletsdutifullytrumpetin

headlines that the dead were ”militants” – even though those media outlets literally do not have the slightestideaof whowasactually killed. They simply cite always-unnamed “officials” claiming that the dead were “militants.” It’s the most obvious and inexcusable form of rank propaganda: media outlets continuously propagating a vital claim without having the slightest idea if it’s true.

This practice continues even though key Obama officials have been caught lying, a term used advisedly, about how many civilians they’re killing. I’ve written and said many times before that in American media discourse, the definition of “militant” is any human being whose life is extinguished when an American missile or bomb detonates (that term was even used when Anwar Awlaki’s 16-year-old American son, Abdulrahman, was killed by a U.S. drone in Yemen two weeks after a drone killed his father, even though nobody claims the teenager was anything but completely innocent: “Another U.S. Drone Strike Kills Militants in Yemen”).

This morning, the New York Times has a very lengthy and detailed article about President Obama’s counter-Terrorism policies based on interviews with “three dozen of his current and former advisers.” I’m writing separately about the numerous revelations contained in that article, but want specifically to highlight this one vital passage about how the Obama administration determines who is a “militant.” The article explains that Obama’s rhetorical emphasis on avoiding civilian deaths “did not significantly change” the drone program, because Obama himself simply expanded the definition of a “militant” to ensure that it includes virtually everyone killed by his drone strikes. Just read this remarkable passage:

Mr. Obama embraced a disputed method for counting civilian casualties that did little to box him in. It in effect counts all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants, according to several administration officials, unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent.

- Before vaccinating your children, demand your doctor sign this form (Natural News, May 29, 2012)

If you were to ask the average pediatrician practicing in America today what he or she thinks about childhood vaccinations, the likely response you would get would be that vaccines are safe and effective, and that their health benefits far outweigh any potential risks. But would these same pediatricians be willing to put their money where their mouth is by signing a warranty of vaccine safety, complete with documented, scientific evidence, that waives their legal immunity in the event of serious injury or death?

Building upon an earlier template originally developed by Ken Anderson from MakeMeYounger.com, PreventDisease.com has come up with an ingenious waiver form called the Physician’s Warranty of Vaccine Safety that every parent needs to read and consider before even thinking about vaccinating a child. If vaccines are abundantly safe for young children, as we are all repeatedly told, then no doctor should have a problem signing a Physician’s Warranty of Vaccine Safety declaring a number of things to be true, or not true, about vaccines.

Inhaling 5 hot particles per day in Seattle can hardly be called a low radiation dose, …

- Columbia Medical Professor: Inhaling Just One Radioactive Hot Particle Can Cause Cancer (Video)


- Should We Hide Low-Dose Radiation Exposures From The Public? (Forbes, May 29, 2012):

When fallout from the Fukushima nuclear disaster began appearing last Spring in U.S. air, rainwater, drinking water, and milk, many U.S. media outlets ignored the story.

It was a difficult story to cover. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency was releasing raw data erratically, sometimes late on Friday afternoons, and reporters either had to possess radiation expertise or take a crash course in picocuries, millisieverts, MCLs and DILs.

It was much easier for reporters to accept reassurances from government officials that the fallout drifting across the U.S. was “well below levels of public concern.” And it was much easier to heed pleas from government and industry that we not alarm the public.
