Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack.

The people of the United States were subject to a deliberate deception by the Obama administration concerning the use of chemical weapons in Damascus, Syria on August 21 according to leading investigative reporter Seymour M. Hersh. No stranger to big stories, Hersh has a successful track record of books and articles based on sources deep in the United States intelligence community.

’Tis the season to feel rage and heartache about the economy.
I feel hope as well, praise the Lord, thanks to Pope Francis and the alley behind my house, where nothing of value goes to waste.
I’m the kind of person who can’t throw anything away, but sometimes I have to anyway — an old microwave, a sewing machine that hasn’t been used in 20 years, a threadbare easy chair, tangled computer wires and other excruciating miscellany — and when I do, it’s usually gone within a day, if not an hour. When I can no longer find value in what I possess, others see it as a gift from the universe.

Spanish actor Antonio Banderas surprised CNN viewers when he criticized US President Barack Obama and suggested Europe and the US should apply the same economic policies as Venezuela’s late president Hugo Chávez.
During his talk with Spanish journalist Ana Pastor, Banderas was asked several questions about the current financial crisis and possible solutions to it.
The Malaga-born star pointed the finger of blame at “the markets, the lobbies, the big corporations” and suggested they didn’t have to take responsibility when countries and governments had problems.
“We’re not being governed by the people we voted for,” he told Pastor.
Nov. 23 UPDATE: Added a 10/2012 report from California:
KPTV Portland, Oregon
Nov. 20, 2013 Something in the sky Wednesday morning had people in the Portland metro area looking up and asking, “What is that?”
The Fox 12 newsroom received several photos of objects passing through the sky above Oregon shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday.
One FOX 12 viewer wrote she noticed “a strange line in the sky” in Beaverton.

While we tend to shy away from what is disturbing, awareness through the following articles could be protective. The sources are primarily Jewish and the information can be checked.
False flags were used against the leaders of the Jewish community to terrify people so much, whole communities fled a country they loved. http://rehmat1.com/2013/11/13/why-jews-left-morocco/
But it gets worse. On arriving in Israel, the Morocco children and those of other North African Jews, were exposed to massive doses of radiation. https://ladinopresiozo.wordpress.com/2013/09/07/unicefs-role-in-sterilizing-and-killing-sephardic-children/

Dear Jewish Community,
I am writing on a very serious issue, one that has been made almost taboo – the necessity of civilian ownership of weapons, a right protected by our Constitution.
To support this is almost taboo among liberal Jews. But in knowing this tabooed subject is central to what happened to us in Germany, we can see how Jewish Senators just betrayed us and our country.
They all broke their sworn oath to the Constitution.

In order for the government to send drones against people they wish to spy on or to attack, they must have GPS-coordinates. Are the people of Boston aware that Lockheed Martin collected their census data?
President Obama authorized the use of drones domestically when he signed FAA Reauthorization Act. They can now be used domestically for a wide range of functions, both public and private, governmental and corporate. And quite definitely against “domestic terrorists.”

Deliver them from their rescuers …
Haiti and Syria are victims of their rescuers. The two nations are now sites of major disease outbreaks. Cholera in Haiti and polio in Syria didn’t just happen. Through negligence, those who claim to rescue the people imported the disease entities and fostered the conditions for wider outbreaks.
680,000 cases of cholera in Haiti since UN rescue mission

Nice that Mr. Drake recognized the alternative media… the last true free press.

Developed in 1988 by the United Nations Environment Programme and the UN’s World Meteorological Organization, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) just published its Fifth Assessment Report  and maintains its silence on military weather modification applications which continue to skew the climate data.

“Extreme weather and climate events” are linked to climate change while no mention is made of government programs deliberately aimed at modifying the weather and inducing earthquakes, drought, rain, and tsunamis.
The modern weather modification program, at least in the US, is over 70 years old. Public service announcements printed in newspapers back in the 1960s warned of government intention to modify the weather.
Life Magazine, back in the 50s and 60s, continually covered US weather modification programs, including Project Stormfury which redirected and reduced hurricane intensity from 1962 to 1983. The IPCC’s continuing and absolute silence on such programs is deafening.

The material below is extremely critical to all of us. But an introduction might be valuable.
We can bring this country together if liberals recognize that those who have known this information for some time are typically conservatives, and often fundamentalists, but they have not been heard. The information is on their liberty and patriot sites, which liberals have been taught to link to nuts or dangerous groups.

Are the bad ideas dead yet? You know, the ones that have been hollowing out the country’s soul for the last 30 years.
In Atlanta, they indicted 35 teachers, principals and administrators, including a former superintendent, for routinely altering their students’ standardized test results — and in all likelihood this massive fraud is an aberration only because the cheaters got caught.
Everything is at stake in these tests, so perhaps it’s dawning on us that fraud — by adults — is inevitable, but there’s a bigger issue here that continues to escape public outrage: The tests are stupid. They measure virtually nothing that matters, but monopolize the classroom politically. Teachers, under enormous pressure, are forced to teach to the tests rather than, you know, teach critical thinking or creative expression; and education is reduced to something rote, linear and boring.

Obama promised that if you like your plan, you can keep it, period— “no matter what.”
Yet the NBC report said the government knew that wasn’t true, saying that buried in regulations from the July 2010 law was an estimate that because of normal turnover in the individual insurance market, “40 to 67 percent” of customers will not be able to keep their policy.
Barbara Honegger served under President Reagan as a high level domestic policy analyst, then moved to the Dept. of Justice. After leaving Washington, she became the Senior Military Affairs Journalist for the Naval Postgraduate School.
She asserts that the attack on the Pentagon on 9/11 was an inside job, which “has been proven.”
Described as “the definitive work” on the Pentagon self-attack on 9/11, the following 3-hour presentation was made in Seattle at the Town Hall on January 12, 2013, on what happened and what didn’t happen at the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.

Geoscientists in Perth have discovered gold particles in the leaves, twigs and bark of eucalyptus trees, claiming a “eureka” moment which could revolutionise gold mining.
CSIRO researchers believe the trees, sitting on top of gold deposits buried deep underground, suck up the gold in their search for moisture during times of drought.
