Anwar al-Awlaki Reported Killed With 30 Al Qaeda In US Airstrike

with one comment

November 4, 2010: Mike Levine and AP Editors / Fox – November 4, 2010

The radical Muslim imam linked to the rampage at Fort Hood reportedly is believed to have been killed in a Yemen airstrike that may have also taken out the region’s top Al Qaeda leader and 30 other militants.

The raid in Yemen’s east targeted an Al Qaeda leadership meeting held to organize terror attacks. U.S. officials believe radical cleric Anwar Awlaki was “probably” one of dozens of militants killed in the strike, a source confirmed to FOX News. “Awlaki is suspected to be dead [in the air raid],” Reuters quoted an unnamed Yemeni official as saying.

The head of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, Nasser al-Wahishi and his deputy, Saeed al-Saudi Shahrani, were present at the meeting and are believed to have died, but their deaths could not immediately be confirmed. “The raid was carried out as dozens of members of Al Qaeda were meeting in Wadi Rafadh,” a source told AFP, referring to a rugged location about 400 miles east of the capital.

“Members of the group’s leadership, including Saad al-Fathani and Mohammad Ahmed Saleh al-Omir, were among those killed,” he was quoted as saying. “Saudis and Iranians at the Wadi Rafadh meeting were also among the dead,” said the source, without going into detail.

Awlaki was once the imam at the prominent Dar al-Hijrah Mosque in Virginia, where the FBI says he had a close relationship with two of the 9/11 hijackers. He fled the U.S. in 2002, eventually returning to Yemen, where he promoted the Iraqi and Afghan insurgencies to a growing religious following in sermons and online.

In an interview posted on Al Jazeera’s Web site, Awlaki said he received an e-mail from Fort Hood gunman Maj. Nidal Hasan on Dec. 17, 2008, “asking for an edict regarding the [possibility] of a Muslim soldier [killing] colleagues who serve with him in the American army.”

Awlaki, who was born in Las Cruces, N.M., said subsequent e-mails “mentioned the religious justifications for targeting the Jews with missiles.” He told the Washington Post in an interview that Hasan eventually came to regard him as a confidant.

A Yemeni official, also speaking on condition of anonymity to AFP, said those attending the meeting “planned to launch terrorist attacks against economic installations in Yemen, in retaliation for Yemeni strikes launched last week.”

On Dec. 17, warplanes and security forces on the ground attacked what authorities said was an Al Qaeda training camp in the area of Mahsad in the southern province of Abyan. Saleh el-Shamsy, a provincial security official, said at least 30 suspected militants were killed. Witnesses, however, put the number killed at over 60 in the heaviest strike and said the dead were mostly civilians.

Much like the effort with Pakistan’s Frontier Corps, the U.S. military has boosted its counterterrorism training for Yemeni forces, and is providing more intelligence, which probably includes surveillance by unmanned drones, according to U.S. officials and analysts.

The Yemeni Interior Ministry said 25 suspected Al Qaeda members were arrested Wednesday in San’a and it has set up checkpoints in the capital to control traffic flow as part of a campaign to clamp down on terrorism.

The United States has repeatedly called on Yemen to take stronger action against Al Qaeda, whose fighters have taken advantage of the central government’s weakness and increasingly found refuge here in the past year. Worries over the growing presence are compounded by fears that Yemen could collapse into turmoil from its multiple conflicts and increasing poverty and become another Afghanistan, giving the militants even freer reign.

The country was the scene of one of Al Qaeda’s most dramatic pre-9/11 attacks, the 2000 suicide bombing of the destroyer USS Cole off the Aden coast that killed 17 American sailors. The government allied itself with Washington in the war on terror, but U.S officials have complained that it often strikes deals with militants.

False Flag Attack Predicted For November 6, 2010?

The occult numerology for 11/6/2010 = 2 (division), just as 9/11 did… 9+1+1 = 11, 1+1 = 2. Also, keep in mind that Anwar al-Awlaki is a CIA asset and double agent who was born where? New Mexico, USA! – SJH

Media Demonization Of Tea Party Movement Now Borders Insanity

leave a comment »

November 4, 2010: The American Dream Editors / The American Dream – November 4, 2010

Once upon a time, news anchors at least attempted to actually conduct themselves in a quasi-professional manner.

But on election night 2010, quite a few of the anchors on the various news networks threw all standards of professionalism right out the window and did everything they could to demonize the Tea Party movement. As you will see below, Tea Party candidates were not just called “wacky”, “kooky” and “extremists” on Tuesday night.

Just on MSNBC alone, Michelle Bachmann was repeatedly asked if she was “hypnotized” as the news anchors openly laughed at her while she was being interviewed, and there was a roundtable discussion which went on for an extended period of time about how Rand Paul, by himself, was going to cause a massive worldwide economic depression.

If MSNBC even had an ounce of integrity left they would fire the whole team of anchors that covered election night, but we all know that is not going to happen. The truth is that the establishment is scared to death of the Tea Party movement now, and the executives at these various networks will almost certainly be directing their news people to demonize prominent Tea Party politicians more than ever.

During the 2010 campaign, the news media generally treated Democrats and establishment Republicans with a great deal of respect, but it was open season on Tea Party candidates. If you were running for office under the Tea Party banner, suddenly it became acceptable for the media to refer to you as a “bitch”, a “witch” or even a “Nazi”. The establishment is not even trying to hide the hatred that it has for those who love liberty, freedom and a more limited government any longer.

Posted below is video of the MSNBC interview with Michelle Bachmann on election night. It was absolutely shameful how the MSNBC anchors treated her.

Over and over and over Chris Matthews kept trying to accuse her of McCarthyism and of wanting to investigate other members of Congress for “un-American” activities. When Bachmann refused to take the bait, Matthews started to openly mock her during the interview. The following are some of the questions he actually asked her…

“Are you hypnotized tonight?”…“Has someone hypnotized you?”…“Are you hypnotized?”…“Has someone put you under a trance tonight?”

Near the end of the interview, Matthews declared that her philosophy is “to investigate everyone for everything”, once again attempting to link her to Joseph McCarthy.

As the interview was ending, he took one last shot at her: “Thank you very much, congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, who seems to be in a trance.” How disgraceful is that? Is this what passes for professional journalism in 2010?

Later on, as the MSNBC anchors were discussing the interview, Matthews described Bachmann as “moronically looking directly at the camera”. Do you ever think that he would treat an establishment Democrat or an establishment Republican so shamefully? Of course not. Here is the video footage of that interview…

But it is not just Michelle Bachmann that is being demonized. On election night, one of the biggest targets was Rand Paul. In the clip below, MSNBC anchors spend an extended amount of time discussing how Rand Paul could single-handedly cause a massive worldwide economic depression.

The video clip is so bizarre that it could actually be mistaken for a sketch on Saturday Night Live. Rand Paul is going to cause a worldwide depression all by himself? Are they kidding? Sadly, they are not. This is yet another sign of how desperate the establishment is becoming.

The truth about our financial system is coming out, the truth about the Federal Reserve is coming out and the truth about how the U.S. government really works is coming out. The American people are waking up, and the overwhelming support for the Tea Party movement on Tuesday is really shaking the establishment up. So in response, expect the vitriol from the establishment attack dogs on the major news networks to get even worse.

The Tea Party movement is a threat to the status quo. The Tea Party movement has the potential to bring some real change to Washington DC. But the folks who control the system do not like that and they aren’t just going to roll over and let it happen. Expect the establishment to fight back and to fight back hard…

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: These sophomoric attacks on true Tea Party patriots speaks volumes as to who controls and funds the corporate media presstitutes, and why fewer and fewer people believe or trust anything that comes out of their forked-tongued pieholes– SJH

Jon Stewart’s Older Brother, Larry Leibowitz, Is ‘COO’ Of The NYSE

with 60 comments

November 4, 2010: The NWO Report Editors / New World Order – November 4, 2010

Not as many people are aware of it as should be, but Jon Stewart’s older brother, Larry Leibowitz, is the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

Mr. Leibowitz was appointed chief operating officer in the first quarter of 2010. In this capacity, he (Leibowitz) is responsible for all the operations management, global cash execution and global listings. He previously served as group executive vice president and head of U.S. Execution and Global Technology from 2007 until 2009.

He joined NYSE Euronext in 2007, having served as managing director and chief operating officer, Americas Equities, at UBS Investment Bank.

Prior to joining UBS in 2004, Mr. Leibowitz held the position of executive vice president, co-head of Schwab Capital Markets. He currently serves on the board of National Stock Exchange of India and has also served on many industry boards and committees, among them the Market Structure Committee of the former Securities Industry Association (now SIFMA).

As stated above, Leibowitz was also formerly managing director and chief operating officer at UBS, “the leading global wealth manager, a leading global investment banking and securities firm, and one of the largest global asset managers”, as they describe themselves. A rather influential man, indeed.

So Larry’s brother Jon calls the President of the United States, Barack Obama, “dude” on international televison when Jon catches Mr. Obama bullshitting his way through an interview (“In fairness, Larry Summers did a heck of a job…”).

There’s been some hubbub about this moment in various media, but the mainstream pundorks appear to be studiously avoiding the obvious: by calling Obama “dude”, Stewart showed his perception of his relationship to the President of the United States. And why wouldn’t the brother of one of the more influential people on Wall Street see himself as being as equal in influence, if not surpassing it, to the president?

A few days following the interview, Stewart drew more people to Washington, DC than Obama could ever hope to draw. Of course, Stewart has banking and media behind him. What’s Obama got?

TTR Update: For the few sceptics out there who still don’t believe that Jon Stewart is actually Jonathon Stuart Leibowitz, the younger brother of the Chief Operating Officer of the NYSE, Larry Leibowitz, I point you all to the following excerpts from Wikipedia– SJH

“Jon Stewart (born Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz; November 28, 1962)[6] is an American political satirist, writer, television host, actor, media critic and stand-up comedian. He is widely known as host of The Daily Show, a satirical news program that airs on Comedy Central

Gulf Is Loaded With Chemicals As FDA Claims Seafood Safe To Eat

with 3 comments

November 4, 2010: Ethan A. Huff / Natural News – November 4, 2010

Do as you will, but I myself will not buy or consume any seafood currently coming out of the Gulf of Mexico… – SJH

(NaturalNews) Not even six months after the first reports about the massive BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico made headlines, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) joined together with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to announce that virtually all Gulf seafood is now safe to eat.

Independent tests, however, continue to show that Gulf waters are still highly contaminated, and that many sea creatures are still dying from exposure to both oil and toxic oil dispersant chemicals.

Federal Agencies Tested For Only One Chemical Component While Ignoring All Others

The FDA and NOAA recently made the shocking announcement because of results from federal tests that allegedly found “no detectable residue” of toxic chemicals in the majority of seafood tested. But fishery experts are questioning the legitimacy of the testing methods used, citing the fact that the tests only looked for one chemical component of the Corexit dispersant — dioctyl sodium sulfosuccinate (DOSS) — while ignoring the presence of numerous other toxic chemicals and chemical combinations like polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), propanols, and 2-butoxyethanol, that are also highly toxic.

Reuters recently covered a report published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters that highlighted the widespread damage caused by PAHs and other dispersant chemicals, and how these chemicals are still harming and killing fish today. Back in May, researchers observed chemical contamination at thousands of feet below sea level — and as far as eight miles from the spill site — and since that time, they say it has most likely spread even further.

“From the time that these observations were made (back in May), there was an extensive release of additional oil and dispersants at the site,” the researchers wrote in their paper. “Therefore, the effects on the deep sea ecosystem may be considerably more severe than supported by the observations reported here.”

According to Bob Naman, a chemist cited in a recent Al Jazeera piece on the dangers of oil dispersants, chemical components of oil dispersants tend to mix with other chemicals to form entirely new chemicals. These new chemicals often escape into the air and come down as rain, harming people, animals, and the environment. And they can also combine in water to create new toxic compounds that contaminate sea life.

Add to that the fact that people living along the Gulf shore are still getting sick from chemical exposure, and it is safe to assume that the creatures living in Gulf waters are also highly contaminated as well.

But neither the FDA nor the NOAA seem all that concerned about any outside information or independent testing that contradicts their own. According to Dr. John Stein from the NOAA, “absolutely none of the samples (taken as part of the federal tests) pose a threat to human health.” And Margaret A. Hamburg, commissioner of the FDA, said in a statement that “there is no question Gulf seafood coming to market is safe from oil or dispersant residue.” So apparently the public is expected to just take the agencies’ word for it without question.

“Smell Test” Initially Used To Test Safety Of Gulf Seafood

Interestingly, the initial testing method the agencies used to assess the safety of Gulf seafood was, get this, a smell test. Stein explained to Reuters that the first round of “sensory testing” involved “trained experts sniff[ing] seafood for evidence of chemical contamination.” So by getting a good whiff of some shrimp and oysters, experts can allegedly determine in full certainty whether or not the creatures are safe for human consumption.

But when the public failed to buy into this “testing” method, the agencies resorted to their “back-up” plan of actually testing the seafood for contaminants. And while the agencies obtained the results that reinforced their findings, such testing methods, as previously mentioned, were flawed to begin with.

Eat Gulf Seafood At Your Own Risk

Numerous investigations by mainstream media outlets remain skeptical of the recent announcement. And because there is still debate among credible experts over whether Gulf seafood is safe, it is probably best to join the skepticism and simply avoid eating it for now.

New Republican House In US To Investigate Global Warming Fraud

leave a comment »

November 4, 2010: Paul Joseph Watson / Prison – November 4, 2010

The global warming/climate change con that threatens to eviscerate the middle class in America faces more scrutiny from new House.

One of the first tasks of the new Republican-controlled House of Congress will be to launch a full investigation into the man-made global warming fraud, as the climate change con that threatens to tax and regulate the American middle class out of existence is exposed to what could prove terminal scrutiny.

“The GOP plans to hold high profile hearings examining the alleged “scientific fraud” behind global warming, a sleeper issue in this election that motivated the base quite a bit,” writes the Atlantic’s Marc Ambinder.

As Politico’s Darren Samuelsohn and Robin Bravender reported yesterday, Barack Obama can count of substantially less allies in his effort to push through his cap and tax agenda, because over two dozen of them were defeated in the mid-term elections, being replaced by Republicans who on the whole are increasingly skeptical towards man-made climate change.

“Come January, Obama will be working with a Congress that will have little appetite for the types of sweeping energy reform he sought over the last two years. With the House in Republican hands, some of the climate issue’s most vocal advocates have been dislodged from their powerful perches, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman,” states the article.

Any proper investigation into global warming is likely to turn up a plethora of evidence of fraud and scientific manipulation.

As the Climategate fiasco and the many other scandals that followed in its wake highlighted, the establishment scientific community has engineered an effort to silence any voices of doubt towards anthropogenic global warming, and in addition has exaggerated and outright faked data to support their conclusion that man-made CO2 emissions lead to catastrophic climate change.

In the attempt to indoctrinate the world to accept man-made global warming, its proponents have increasingly turned away from hard science and resorted to crude and self-defeating propaganda.

As we have repeatedly highlighted, eco-fascism is bearing its teeth and in doing so revealing the true agenda behind the global warming movement – micro management, authoritarian control, and eventually genocide of the human population.

An infomercial released by the 1010 Global climate group at the end of September depicted children being liquidated in an explosion of blood and guts for not reducing their carbon footprint. The organization was forced to remove the video from its website and issue and apology – but the damage had already been done.

The climate change agenda is already on the ropes and has been for over a year. A true investigation into its fraudulent foundation must be welcomed as another step towards ending its stranglehold over human development, prosperity, and progress for good.

This will also free up resources, funding and time for the real environmental problems in the world to be tackled head on, not the ones invented by Al Gore, Maurice Strong and the rest of the global elite, who couldn’t care less about the environment but have sought to exploit genuine concerns about the planet to push through their dictatorial agenda.
