Could virus-eating viruses be the new miracle drugs?

Viruses are capsules with genetic material inside. They are very tiny, much smaller than bacteria. Viruses cause familiar infectious diseases such as the common cold, flu and warts. They also cause severe illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, smallpox and hemorrhagic fevers.

Viruses are like hijackers. They invade living, normal cells and use those cells to multiply and produce other viruses like themselves. This eventually kills the cells, which can make you sick.

Viral infections are hard to treat because viruses live inside your body's cells. They are "protected" from medicines, which usually move through your bloodstream. Antibiotics do not work for viral infections. There are a few antiviral medicines available. Vaccines can help prevent you from getting many viral diseases.

Virus-eating virus identified in Antarctic lake

Deep within the waters of Antarctica's Organic Lake an Australian research team, led by microbiologist Ricardo Cavicchioli from the University of New South Wales, have discovered a new virophage, or virus eater. Their findings were recently published in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences. [via]

The new virophage was discovered by graduate student Sheree Yau and given the name Organic Lake Virophage, or OLV. The new virophage was identified when she noticed that sequences in the protein shell from the lake were similar to a previously discovered virophage named Sputnik.
Sputnik, which was first discovered in the water-cooling tower in Paris in 2008, was the first virophage ever identified. Earlier this month, Matthias Fischer and Curtis Suttle announced the discovery of a second virophage known as Mavirus.
The discovery of OLV makes this only the third virophage, though there is evidence of sequence matches to OLV in numerous other locations including the nearby Ace Lake. However, the other matches span the globe, including a lagoon in the Galapagos Islands, a bay in New Jersey, and a freshwater lake in Panama.
Virophages, which are known as virus eaters, attack other viruses, as is the case with the first virophage, Sputnik. Unable to multiply within a host, virophages rely on hosts infected with other viruses. In the case of Sputnik, it was an amoeba infected with a mamavirus. Sputnik would essentially take over the replication process of the mamavirus. Because of this takeover, the mamavirus is unable to produce properly, thus reducing its ability to infect the amoeba.

Springs man's claim to have Obama records starts buzz

A Colorado Springs “birther,” retired Air Force Col. Gregory Hollister, has Internet blogs abuzz with what may be an illegal foray into an online Social Security data base and how he obtained a copy of President Barack Obama’s draft registration from 1980.

“Col. Greg Hollister, USAF (Ret.) contacted the Selective Service, falsely impersonated President Obama, improperly registered his own address as President Obama’s address, and by this false impersonation and identity theft he managed to obtain a duplicate registration acknowledgement card with President Obama’s Selective Service information on it,” a blogger posted on gratewire.com last week. “This may violate several federal criminal statutes, and apparently caused the federal record of President Obama’s address with the Selective Service to be altered to show that he lives in Colorado Springs, CO.”

Libya bombing an attempt to create 'New World Order'?

Shock admission by author of doctrine used by White House to justify attacks

By Aaron Klein
© 2011 WorldNetDaily

JERUSALEM – The author of a military doctrine used by the Obama administration to justify the recent airstrikes targeting the regime of Moammar Gadhafi in Libya recently advocated for a "global rebalancing" and "international redistribution" to create a "New World Order."

The author, Ramesh Thakur, is a fellow at the Centre for International Governance Innovation, which is in partnership with an economic institute founded by philanthropist billionaire George Soros. Thakur is also closely tied with other Soros-funded initiatives.

WND was first to report last week that Soros is also a primary funder and key proponent of the global organization that promotes the military doctrine "Responsibility to Protect," cited by the White House as allowing the use of force to attack Gadhafi's forces.

The joint U.S. and international air strikes targeting Libya are widely regarded as a test of Responsibility to Protect – a set of principles, now backed by the United Nations, based on the idea that sovereignty is not a privilege but a responsibility that can be revoked if a country is accused of "war crimes," "genocide," "crimes against humanity" or "ethnic cleansing."

The term "war crimes" has at times been indiscriminately used by various U.N.-backed international bodies, including the International Criminal Court, or ICC, which applied it to Israeli anti-terror operations in the Gaza Strip. There has been fear the ICC could be used to prosecute U.S. troops.

Another stunner behind Obama's Libya doctrine -- George Soros & Hanan Ashrawi & Samantha Power

You won't believe who helped devise policy used by president

Hanan Ashrawi

TEL AVIV – A staunch denier of the Holocaust who long served as the deputy of late PLO leader Yasser Arafat served on the committee that invented the military doctrine used by President Obama as the main justification for U.S. and international airstrikes against Libya.

As WND first reported, billionaire philanthropist George Soros is a primary funder and key proponent of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect, the world's leading organization pushing the military doctrine. Several of the doctrine's main founders sit on multiple boards with Soros.

The doctrine and its founders, as WND reported, have been deeply tied to Obama aide Samantha Power, who reportedly heavily influenced Obama in consultations leading to the decision to bomb Libya. Power is the National Security Council special adviser to Obama on human rights.

Global food scare widens from Japan nuclear plant

Corn being used for ethanol and fear of radiation contamination from Japanese food exports heighten world food scarcity fears

Global food scare widens

Countries across the world shunned Japanese food imports Thursday as radioactive steam leaked from a disaster-struck nuclear plant, straining nerves in Tokyo.

The grim toll of dead and missing from Japan's monster quake and tsunami on March 11 topped 26,000, as hundreds of thousands remained huddled in evacuation shelters and fears grew in the megacity of Tokyo over water safety.

The damage to the Fukushima nuclear plant from the tectonic calamity and a series of explosions has stoked global anxiety. The United States and Hong Kong have already restricted Japanese food, and France wants the EU to do the same.

Russia ordered a halt to food imports from four prefectures -- Fukushima, Gunma, Ibaraki and Tochigi -- near the stricken plant 250 kilometres (155 miles) northeast of Tokyo.

Moscow also placed in quarantine a Panama-flagged cargo ship that had passed near the plant and put its 19 crew under medical supervision after detecting radiation levels three times the norm in the engine room.

Australia banned produce from the area, including seaweed and seafood, milk, dairy products, fresh fruit and vegetables.

Muslims (extremists?) set fire to roughly 50 churches and dozens of Christian homes in Ethiopia

Not all Muslims are blowing things up and burning things down but I think it’s about time to drop the extremists tag as though it’s just a few renegades. It seems to be quite prevalent in their culture!

Thousands of Christians Displaced in Ethiopia After Muslim Extremists Torch Churches, Homes

Remains of burned down Kale Hiwot church in Asendabo, Ethiopia.

Thousands of Christians have been forced to flee their homes in Western Ethiopia after Muslim extremists set fire to roughly 50 churches and dozens of Christian homes.

At least one Christian has been killed, many more have been injured and anywhere from 3,000 to 10,000 have been displaced in the attacks that began March 2 after a Christian in the community of Asendabo was accused of desecrating the Koran.

The violence escalated to the point that federal police forces sent to the area two weeks ago were initially overwhelmed by the mobs. Government spokesman Shimelis Kemal told Voice of America police reinforcements had since restored order and 130 suspects had been arrested and charged with instigating religious hatred and violence.

Prime Minister Meles Zenawi said the Islamist group Kawarja is believed to have incited the violence.

Rep. Anthony Weiner said Wednesday he was looking into how a health law waiver might work for New York City.

Weiner, who is likely to run for mayor of New York, said that because of the city’s special health care infrastructure, his office was looking into alternatives that might make more sense. Weiner is one of the health care law’s biggest supporters; during the debate leading up to reform, he was one of the last holdouts in Congress for the public option.

90% don't believe Obama has documented eligibility; 66% would like state legislation to require proof

Only 9% believe Obama has documented eligibility


Scientific tally shows 2 of 3 like state legislation to require proof
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
© 2011 WorldNetDaily

Editor's note: This is another in a series of monthly "WND/WENZEL POLLS" conducted exclusively for WND by the public-opinion research and media consulting company Wenzel Strategies.
Barack Obama
Not even one person in 10 believes Barack Obama has shown that he is eligible to be president of the United States, according to a stunning new scientific poll that also reveals political independents have less tolerance than even Republicans for his efforts to obfuscate the issue.
"The shocking result in this survey is that just 9 percent said they believe Obama has met the requirements to prove he was born in the United States and is therefore qualified to be president," said Fritz Wenzel, president of Wenzel Strategies, which conducted the survey.

"Even when you combine those who say such questions are not valid with those who believe he has satisfied the requirements, it still falls short of equaling the percentage who said he should step forward and prove his birth origin once and for all," he said.

Wenzel Strategies, an independent public opinion research firm based in Ohio, conducted a nationwide telephone poll using a randomly selected sample of adults. The survey, including 1,095 respondents, was conducted March 15-17 and carries a confidence interval of 95 percent and a margin of error of +/- 2.93

Farrakhan Blasts Obama For Calling For Qaddafi to Step Down: Who The Hell Do You Think You Are?

Simple design flaw in backup generators led to Japan’s nuclear problem

Survived quake and should have survived Tsunami if fuel tanks were underground but environmentalist’s wackos will scream for ban on nuclear power plants

What Caused the Nuclear Problem in Japan

I received the following e-mail that sheds some interesting light on the problem in Japan:

I am surprised that none of the so-called media have found out yet. They’ve all reported that the emergency generators have failed. True, so far as it goes..

Critical installations are set up so that, if power is lost, diesel powered generators come on automatically to provide standby power. This is necessary, in a nuclear installation, to keep cooling water circulating. The generators apparently survived the 9.0 earthquake and the tsunami.

But the Japanese made a tiny boo boo.

You see in the photos of before and after, two big white things which have disappeared. Those are the fuel tanks for the diesels. The tsunami swept them away. Note how they were carelessly installed right on the beach and above ground. In the USA, we install our day tanks under the ground. They don’t get swept away. So…this is not a nuclear problem per se. It is a myopic bit of engineering whereby someone carefully calculated how to make fuel tanks withstand earthquakes but never considered tsunamis, not even after the one in SE Asia that killed 200,000 people in 2004.

So now the enviroweenies will all scream about the danger of nukes, and your energy costs will go up, simply because of an oversight that does not exist in the USA.

Radiation from Japan to reach US Friday, track it with radiation detector map

A United Nations forecast of the possible movement of the radioactive plume coming from crippled Japanese reactors shows it churning across the Pacific, and touching the Aleutian Islands on Thursday before hitting Southern California late Friday.

Health and nuclear experts emphasize that radiation in the plume will be diluted as it travels and, at worst, would have extremely minor health consequences in the United States, even if hints of it are ultimately detectable. In a similar way, radiation from the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 spread around the globe and reached the West Coast of the United States in 10 days, its levels measurable but minuscule

Here are two sites that show radiation levels for the US

Boehner asked to commit suicide… politically speaking

Is Boehner with us, or against us? Has he been one of the ‘ruling class’ all along?

Schumer to Boehner: Ditch the Tea Party, Join Us!

Top-ranking Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer is urging Republican House Speaker John Boehner to ditch the Tea Party and join a coalition that includes Democrats to work around conservative lawmakers on spending cuts.

“It is becoming clear that the path to a bipartisan budget deal may not go through the Tea Party at all. In order to avert a shutdown, Speaker Boehner should consider leaving the Tea Party behind and instead seek a consensus in the House among moderate Republicans and a group of Democrats,” the New Yorker said in a written statement.

Schumer’s mischievous overture to Boehner comes as a still small, but burgeoning rebellion among House conservatives, including many in the freshman class, is endangering a three-week spending bill designed to avert government shutdown while Boehner negotiates a deal with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and President Obama.

As evil as Hitler was, he didn’t start out to destroy his own nation.

The Obama administration is corrupt and evil

March 14, 2011
Marie Jon, RenewAmerica analyst
President Barack Obama exhibits very little to none of the biblical teachings of the Judeo-Christian faith. To this day, he has not become a member of any of the Christian churches in Washington, D.C.
I'm not going to stop reminding the American people about the fact that Obama sat in the Trinity United Church of Christ for 20 years because he liked what he heard coming out of the mouth of an anti-American, anti-Semitic, bigoted pastor named Jeremiah Wright.
Progressive Black Liberation Theology is a Marxist teaching. It explains the goals of this president as he continually works to destroy our country. For nearly a century, communists have sought to bring down the greatest nation in the world, and the current resident of the White House is no exception.
Treasonous insiders
Ronald Reagan emphasized that America is a shining city on a hill whose beacon guides freedom-loving people everywhere. He spoke of the tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace — a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. Where is that nation today?
America is being stolen from us by an administration that is riddled with communists and Czars who make laws and policies that do not pass through our Senate and the House.
 Carol Browner — a member of Socialist International's Commission for a Sustainable World Society — was but one of the radical czars who dominated the administration from the outset, and who served as part of a shadow cabinet to implement Obama's ultraliberal agenda.
We can clearly see that disturbing agenda by taking a look at the work conducted within Browner's office. She and her cohorts manipulated the scientific data regarding the British Petroleum oil spill, in their quest to stop off-shore drilling. The result was a job-killing moratorium on safe drilling in the Gulf. With the Middle East aflame and in chaos, we're paying a price, as we continue to be beholden to unpredictable oil-rich countries. Whatever happened to the mantra "Drill, baby, drill?"
Browner resigned in January as Obama's Director of Energy and Climate Change Policy, and the House of Representatives voted the following month to abolish her position altogether. These developments may help slow down this administration's obsession with implementing "cap and trade" — with its energy tax — but we can't count on it. Obama has shown himself oblivious to the will of the American people. Do we honestly believe Obama will be deterred from trying to shove his policies down our throats — policies like redistribution of wealth and Obamacare — by the loss of one of his leading czars?
Every single czar should be forced to resign. But until we remove the man in the White House, that is not likely to happen. We have a traitorous "fifth column" embedded in every facet of our government. Who has the president's ears? View here — "Obama's Communist and Socialist Czars — Van Jones & Carol Browner — Advising Obama."
One Nation Under Marx
When we become rightfully upset about the way the president and his buddies in the media refer to the Tea Party, I'd like to know why the Democrat Party is connected at the hip with the groups that were seen October 2, 2010, in Washington, D.C., at the socialist One Nation Rally.
The American people have never been given an explanation. View the "One Nation Rally" photos. These Communist and Marxist organizations were told to show up by whom? Does the president have no connection with any of these groups? Let me sell you the Brooklyn Bridge if you're naive enough to believe he has none.
Conservative and independent voters are fed up. We've heard not one word of condemnation by the Democrat Party or the media of such blatantly unAmerican hate-mongering as we witnessed at the One Nation Rally. Even our own Republican candidates running for president seem content to say little or nothing about the true character of the deceitful man who happens to be Commander-In-Chief of our troops.
If Republicans want to win come 2012, they must be open and candid. Many people still don't understand that besides being an agitating community organizer from Chicago, the Usurper has known ties to shady operatives and criminals. Republicans need to explain that the transformation Obama is busily working toward is to transform our country to socialism — resulting in the enslavement of ourselves and our posterity by Obama's fellow elitists and thugs.
Let us never forget that "When the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn" (Prov. 29:2).

Dispite considerable amounts of carbon dioxide emmisions, less efficiency, and creating higher food prices, Germany sticks with troubled 'biofuel'

Germany sticks with troubled 'biofuel'

The German government said after crisis talks on Tuesday it was sticking with a newly introduced petrol with a 10-percent biofuel content despite major problems since its introduction last month.

"We need to reduce our dependency on oil," Environment Minister Norbert Roettgen said after meeting automakers, oil company representatives and consumer and motorists' organisations in Berlin.

"All those involved in the meeting are in favour of E10 (fuel) in order to protect the climate, to safeguard the environment, to preserve natural resources and for greater energy security."

The new fuel, which went on sale in February at German petrol stations, is to comply with a European Union directive for biofuels to account for at least 10% of all petrol and diesel sold in the 27-nation bloc by 2020.

In France, the launch has gone smoothly, with E10 accounting for 13% of all petrol sales at the end of 2010 and the fuel is available in close to 20 percent of filling stations.

But German motorists have steered clear, despite the fact that it is cheaper than regular petrol, because of fears that it will damage their engines even though the automobile federation says 93 percent of cars can use it.

There are also doubts about its environmental benefits because considerable amounts of carbon dioxide are emitted during the harvesting and processing of the crops, and because the fuel is less efficient, critics say.

Strong demand for the fuel also means less farmland is available for other crops, pushing already rising food prices -- and therefore inflation -- even higher around the world.

Sigmar Gabriel, head of the opposition Social Democrats (SPD) and Roettgen's predecessor, said that instead of biofuels the government "should focus on promoting electric and hydrogen-powered cars."

Oil spill risk management conferee’s told: Gulf of Mexico spill no reason to halt deep sea drilling

Spill no reason to halt deep sea drilling: BP

Last year's massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill sparked by an explosion on a BP-leased platform is no reason to stop deep sea drilling, the group's chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg said Monday

Misleading Email: How To Read Bar Codes--Very Good To Know

I received the following email and immediately decided to post it for all. As I reached towards the publish button I thought, ‘Let me just do a search on the subject line. I’m glad I did because I found that the info incomplete. However, it still may be useful.  Below the email is an article I found on WikiHow.com:

ALWAYS READ THE LABELS ON THE FOODS YOU BUY--NO MATTER WHAT THE FRONT OF THE BOX OR PACKAGE SAYS, TURN IT OVER AND READ THE BACK---CAREFULLY!

With all the food and pet products now coming from China , it is best to make sure you read labels at the grocery store and especially Wal-Mart when buying food products. Many products no longer show where they were made, only give where the distributor is located. It is important to read the bar code to track it's origin.

How to read Bar Codes ...interesting! This may be useful to know when grocery shopping, if it's a concern to you. GREAT WAY TO "BUY USA  &  CANADA " AND NOT FROM CHINA!!
BarCode 
The whole world is afraid of China-made "black hearted goods".
Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or  China ?
If the first 3 digits of the barcode are 690, 691 or 692, the product is MADE IN  CHINA. 471 is Made in  Taiwan.

This is our right to know, but the government and related departments never educate the public, therefore we have to RESCUE ourselves.
Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products "MADE IN CHINA", so they don't show from which country it is made.  

However, you may now refer to the barcode -
remember if the first 3 digits are:

690-692 ... then it is MADE IN  CHINA
00 - 09 ...   USA   &  CANADA
30 - 37 ...   FRANCE
40 - 44 ...   GERMANY
471  ...  Taiwan
49 ...     JAPAN
50 ...     UK

BUY USA & CANADIAN MADE by watching for "0" at the beginning of the number. We need every boost we can get!

How to Read 12 Digit UPC Barcodes

Read 12 Digit UPC Barcodes

Most bar codes in the US are 12-digit UPC (Universal Product Code) barcodes, with ten digits at the bottom of the code and one small number to each side. Impress your friends by asking them to select a random item from the kitchen with a removable label and cut the numbers off of the UPC barcode; you can then proceed to read the numbers encoded in the lines.

  1. 1

    Note that barcodes are made up of both white and black lines. The white spaces in between the black lines are part of the code.

  1. 1

    Understand that there are four different thicknesses to the lines. Henceforth, the skinniest line will be referred to as "1," the medium-sized line as "2," the next largest line as "3." and the thickest is "4."

  1. 1

    Recognize that each UPC barcode begins and ends with 101 (thin black, thin white, thin black). In the very middle of the barcode, you will notice two thin black lines sticking down between the numbers. The thin white between them, as well as the thin whites to either side, make up a 01010. Each UPC barcode has 01010 in the middle.

    Image:UPC_EANUCC 12_barcode.png

  1. 1

    Recognize that each digit, including the small numbers that begin and end the barcode, has its own unique four-line set. 0 = 3211, 1 = 2221, 2 = 2122, 3 = 1411, 4 = 1132, 5 = 1231, 6 = 1114, 7 = 1312, 8 = 1213, 9 = 3112. (Note that the sum of bar widths numbers is 7 for all codes because each code is 7 units wide.) Notice that the line colors are reversed after the center-line: The lines of the digits to the left are white/black/white/black whilst to the right they are black/white/black/white. This provides some error checking and allows the reader to know the direction in which it is scanning a code. It is also crucial so that the barcode ends with a bar rather than a space. So, actually, each digit has two codes.

  1. 1

    So, the barcode above whose first two digits are 03 would start out "10132111411". Broken down this is "101-3211-1411" where 101 marks the beginning of the bar code and 3211 marks the digit 0 .

HOW TO READ AND INTERPRET BARCODES
  • UPC Barcodes are typically registered and used in the United States and Canada and, therefore, do not indicate a country identifier.
  • A similar bar code system is EAN (European Article Number). It contains 13 digits and also indicates the country in which the bar code was registered. Read the first "3" digits of the code to determine this.
    • Example: If the first 3 digits of the barcode are 690, 691, or 692, the country in which the code was registered was China.
  • It is important to note that the country code in EAN bar codes DOES NOT indicate where the product was manufactured (see Do Bar Codes Reveal Where a Product Is Made). For example, if the barcode begins with 64, then it was registered in Finland (probably to a company that was headquartered in Finland). Look more closely at the packaging, however, and you may find that the product was "Made in China".

What’s the deal with Glenn Beck?

Beck has a lot of good info on his shows but I’ve never felt secure with him…what do you think? More importantly, what do you know?

Christian author: Glenn Beck actually New Age 'anti-Christ'

  • But defenders says Fox host clearly championing Gospel


A Christian author and national speaker has just released a video in which he flays radio and TV commentator Glenn Beck as a pagan, New Age "anti-Christ" who is deluding many believers away from the Bible's teachings and leading them toward Eastern mysticism.

Saturday’s ‘super-moon’ rarer than a ‘blue-moon’..don’t miss it!

'Supermoon' Has No Connection to Japanese Earthquake

Moon Affects Tides, Not Earthquakes

Astronomer: No Scientific Reason to Expect Extreme Weather

Paquette told ABCNews.com that he wants to remain "neutral" on the topic but said, "I do think it's possible that it could bring earthquakes, volcanic eruptions or anything weather-related as well."

But Williams said there's no reason to believe that anything out of the ordinary -- aside from an especially big and bright full moon -- will take place next week.

"There's nothing really special about this," he said.

For starters, although the moon will be closer than it's been for 18 or 19 years, it will only be one or two percent closer.

"It's nothing you could notice unless you made really accurate measurements," he said. "It's a few thousand miles closer, but as far as the moon's orbit is considered, that's nothing."

Moon Will Be as Big as It Gets

The moon orbits the Earth every 29 1/2 days, so it reaches perigee more than once a month. The orbit of the moon changes slightly over time, so the distance between Earth and the moon also changes -- but only slightly, Williams said.

On March 19, it will probably be only about half a percent closer than it ever is every 18 years, he said, which is a "very, very small amount."

And though the gravitational effect of the moon causes the tides (when the moon is closer, the tides are slightly larger), he said there's "no scientific reason whatsoever" to expect that this supermoon will result in floods or other extreme conditions.

But, Williams said, on the night of March 19, you will want to peek up at the sky.

"Because it's a full moon at its closest approach, it's going to be big and really bright. It should be noticeably brighter than a normal full moon. I would suggest that you take the opportunity and go out at night," he said. "This is the biggest full moon that you will ever see. You will see this moon again, but this is as big as it gets."

Brutal slaughter committed by US trained Palestinian security forces: Whole Jewish family stabbed to death!


 U.S.-trained forces arrested in brutal slaying

  • 5 members of Jewish family killed inside their home



Murdered members of Udi Fogel family

JERUSALEM – Two members of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' official security forces were arrested in conjunction with this past weekend's bloody massacre in which five family members were brutally stabbed to death inside their home in the Jewish village of Itamar, WND has learned.

The names of the apprehended suspects will be released to the Israeli media within hours but were revealed to WND by security officials working on the murder.

Two cousins are now in Israeli custody and are suspected in the slayings. Ahmed Awad is an officer in Abbas' Preventative Security Services in the northern West Bank city of Nablis. Iyad Awad is an officer in Abbas' General Intelligence services in Ramallah.

Both the Preventative and General Intelligence services of Fatah are armed, trained and funded by the U.S.

It was not immediately clear whether the duo were arrested for planning the attack or for personally carrying out the murders.

Since the late 1990s, the U.S. has run training bases for PA militias. The U.S. also has provided hundreds of millions of dollars in financial aid and weapons to build up the PA militias. 
Since 2007, the U.S. has stepped up its efforts at training the PA, including a new, advanced program for Palestinian police to train 500 to 600 cadets at a time at the American bases. 
The U.S. currently operates training bases for the PA police and other militias, such as Force 17 and the Preventative Security Services in the West Bank city of Jericho and the Jordanian village of Giftlik.

Lee Iacocca, 'Where Have All The Leaders Gone?'

Remember Lee Iacocca , the man who rescued Chrysler Corporation from its death throes?


He's now 82 years old and has a new book, 'Where Have All The Leaders Gone?'.

Lee Iacocca Says:

'Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where the hell is our outrage with this so called president? We should be... screaming bloody murder! We've got a gang of tax cheating clueless leftists trying to steer our ship of state right over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can't even run a ridiculous cash-for-clunkers program without losing $26 billion of the taxpayers' money, much less build a hybrid car . But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, 'trust me, the economy is getting better..' Better? You've got to be kidding. This is America , not the damned ' Titanic '. I'll give you a sound bite: 'Throw all the Democrats out, along with Obama!'
You might think I'm getting senile, that I've gone off my rocker, and maybe I have. But someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize this country anymore...
The most famous business leaders are not the innovators but the guys in handcuffs..

While we're fiddling in Afghanistan , Iran is completing their nuclear bombs and missiles and nobody seems to know what to do. And the liberal press is waving 'pom-poms' instead of asking hard questions That's not the promise of the ' America ' my parents and yours traveled across the ocean for.. I've had enough. How about you?
I'll go a step further. You can't call yourself a patriot if you're not outraged. This is a fight I'm ready and willing to have. The Biggest 'C' is Crisis! (Iacocca elaborates on nine C's of leadership, with crisis being the first.)
Leaders are made, not born. Leadership is forged in times of crisis. It's easy to sit there with thumb up your ass and talk theory. Or send someone else's kids off to war when you've never seen a battlefield yourself. It's another thing to lead when your world comes tumbling down.
On September 11, 2001, we needed a strong leader more than any other time in our history.
We needed a steady hand to guide us out of the ashes. A hell of a mess, so here's where we stand.
We're immersed in a bloody war now with no plan for winning and no plan for leaving..
But our soldiers are dying daily.
We're running the biggest deficit in the history of the world, and it's getting worse every day!
We've lost the manufacturing edge to Asia , while our once-great companies are getting slaughtered by health care costs.
Gas prices are going to skyrock again, and nobody in power has a lucid plan to open drilling to solve the problem. This country has the largest oil reserves in the WORLD, and we cannot drill for it because the politicians have been bought by the flea-hugging environmentalists.
Our schools are in a complete disaster because of the teachers' union.
Our borders are like sieves and they want to give all illegal's amnesty and free healthcare.
The middle class is being squeezed to death every day.
These are times that cry out for leadership.
But when you look around, you've got to ask: 'Where have all the leaders gone?'

Where are the curious, creative communicators? Where are the people of character, courage, conviction, omnipotence, and common sense?

I may be a sucker for alliteration, but I think you get the point..
Name me a leader who has a better idea for homeland security than making us take off our shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo?
We've spent billions of dollars building a huge new bureaucracy, and all we know how to do is react to things that have already happened.
Everyone's hunkering down, fingers crossed, hoping the government will make it better for them. Now, that's just crazy.. Deal with life.
Name me an industry leader who is thinking creatively about how we can restore our competitive edge in manufacturing. Who would have believed that there could ever be a time when 'The Big Three' referred to Japanese car companies? How did this happen, and more important, look what Obama did about it!
Name me a government leader who can articulate a plan for paying down the debt, or solving the energy crisis , or managing the health care problem. The silence is deafening. But these are the crises that are eating away at our country and milking the middle class dry.
I have news for the Chicago gangsters in Congress. We didn't elect you to turn this country into a losing European Socialist state . What is everybody so afraid of? That some bonehead on NBC or CNN news will call them a name? Give me a break. Why don't you guys show some spine for a change?
Had Enough ? Hey, I'm not trying to be the voice of gloom and doom here. I'm trying to light a fire. I'm speaking out because I have hope - I believe in America .. In my lifetime, I've had the privilege of living through some of America 's greatest moments. I've also experienced some of our worst crises: The 'Great Depression ,' ' World War II ,' the ' Korean War ,' the 'Kennedy Assassination,' the ' Vietnam War ,' the 1970's oil crisis , and the struggles of recent years since 9/11.
Make your own contribution by sending this to everyone you know and care about. It's our country, folks, and it's our future. Our future is at stake!!

Mega-quake of catastrophic proportions predicted for America's within 2 weeks

EARTHQUAKE WARNING FROM RUSSIAN INSTITUTE of PHYSICS of the EARTH


Posted by Real News Reporter on March 12th, 2011

A new report released today in the Kremlin prepared for Prime Minister Putin by the Institute of Physics of the Earth, in Moscow, is warning that the America’s are in danger of suffering a mega-quake of catastrophic proportions during the next fortnight (14 days) with a specific emphasis being placed on the United States, Mexico, Central America and South American west coast regions along with the New Madrid Fault Zone region.

This report further warns that catastrophic earthquakes in Asia and the sub-continent are, also, “more than likely to occur” with the 7.3 magnitude quake in Japan today being “one of at least 4 of this intensity” to occur during this same time period.

Raising the concerns of a mega-quake occurring, this report says, are the increasing subtle electromagnetic signals that are being detected in the Earth’s upper atmosphere over many regions of the World, with the most intense being over the US Western coastal and Midwest regions.

Important to note are that Russian and British scientists are at the forefront of predicting earthquakes based on these subtle electromagnetic signals and have joined in an effort to put satellites in space to detect more of them.

More ominously in this report are Russian scientists confirming the independent analysis of New Zealand mathematician and long-range weather forecaster, Ken Ring, who predicted the deadly Christchurch quake and this week issued another warning of a quake to hit on or about March 20th

With 2nd O’Keefe Video, Is NPR’s Tax-Exempt Status at Risk?

NPR can and will survive the firings of execs Ron and Vivian Schiller. It can even survive Congressional “defunding.” But NPR could never survive the loss of its tax-exempt status…and that is the issue implicated in James O’Keefe’s second undercover video in which NPR tells Muslim radical poseurs how to conceal donations from government audits.

The “star” of this second sting video is Betsy Liley, the Senior Director of Institutional Giving at NPR, who reported directly to the recently fired Ron Schiller, who himself starred in O’Keefe’s first NPR video laughing over lunch at Jews, whites, and racist Tea Partiers, and dismissively saying NPR doesn’t need public funding. And he may be right.

Turns out roughly 2% of NPR’s funding comes from public coffers. The real money comes from charitable donations to NPR and its public radio affiliates who rely on the NPR “brand” to attract charitable donors and then, in return, pay back to NPR the lion’s share of its operating budget.
So the real threat – the thermonuclear threat – posed by O’Keefe’s video may be the loss of NPR’s all-important tax exempt status. Without tax-exempt status, NPR’s charitable donation well runs dry.
In O’Keefe’s latest video, Ms. Liley reassured the actor posing as a Muslim Brotherhood front group that NPR could legally accept the $5 million dollar gift anonymously to shield the group from government audits disclosing the donor’s identity. On March 1, 2011, she confirmed this in writing via email, as you can see in the video.

NPR’s schmoozing for money from a group claiming ties to the Muslim Brotherhood clearly constitutes a moral outrage, but does it imperil its tax exempt status as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation?
The IRS makes clear that “leaders of 501(c)(3)s must not make partisan comments in official organization publications or at official functions,” and that NPR must comply with “information reporting obligations … [generally] met by filing Form 990.” Tax lawyers and CPAs may quibble and debate whether the O’Keefe videos expose prohibited conduct, but NPR unmistakably appreciates the dire threat.

Thus, barely hours after O’Keefe’s video posted, NPR responded:

Indonesian volcano erupts hours after Japan earthquake

Indonesia volcano erupts, spews lava and gas

JAKARTA, Indonesia – One of Indonesia's most active volcanos has erupted, sending lava and searing gas clouds tumbling down its slopes.

Volcanology official Agus Budianto said Friday that authorities were still trying to evacuate residents living along the slopes of Mount Karangetang.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or serious damage.

The 5,853-foot (1,784-meter) mountain is located on Siau, part of the Sulawesi island chain. It last erupted in August, killing four people.

Indonesia, the world's largest archipelago, is located on the so-called Pacific "Ring of Fire," an arc of volcanos and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin.

The eruption happened hours after a massive earthquake in Japan that triggered a Pacific-wide tsunami.

Congressman Issa exposes Obama regime trying to silence conservative media outlets

Darrell Issa: White House influencing net neutrality

Specifically, Issa noted that a 2009 American Spectator article said a draft of the net neutrality rules had been circulated to Obama administration officials — and that Genachowski and President Barack Obama made suspiciously similar remarks about the rules on Sept. 21, 2009.

Issa — then the ranking member, now the chairman of the House Oversight Committee — asked, among other things, whether then-White House economic adviser Larry Summers had had any contact with the FCC about net neutrality.

When Issa received no response to his letter, he wrote again on Dec. 29, 2010. His letters – and a response from Genachowski – were released by the FCC on Thursday.

In his response, Genachowski said that the Communications Act of 1934 “does not prohibit communications between commissioners and commission staff and members of the administration.”

Further, he said that the FCC’s own regulations requiring disclosure of ex parte communications do not kick in until “the release of a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.” The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on net neutrality was issued in October 2009, Genachowski said.

“Thus, for example, no disclosure requirements applied in September 2009,” Genachowski wrote. “Moreover, the Commission's Office of General Counsel is not aware of any potential violations of the ex parte rules in connection with the subject matter of your letter.”

The letters are available here.

Japan earthquake latest: Cruise ship and bullet train go missing

Cruise ship, entire train missing

A large number of tourists are thought to be among 400 passengers feared drowned after a high-speed bullet train and cruise ship went missing following the devastating Japanese earthquake earlier today.The massive earthquake - 8,000 times stronger than the one that hist New Zealand last month - sent a catastrophic 33 foot tsunami hurtling across the Pacific Ocean.

Thousands of people were forced to flee for their lives as the massive wave bore down on them, sweeping away everything in its path.

This afternoon, the Japanese declared a state of emergency at a nuclear power plant in Fukushima after the 8.9 quake caused the cooling system to fail.

Meanwhile, a ship carrying 100 people was swept away by the tsunami and bullet train carrying hundreds of passengers in the Miyagi region was missing. Their fate is unknown.

Meteorological Agency: North American plate snapped upward in 8.9 quake

Latest Temblor An Interplate Quake: Meteorological Agency

TOKYO (Nikkei)--The major earthquake that struck northeastern Japan on Friday had the hallmarks of an interplate quake, which occurs at the boundary between two tectonic plates.

At the area near the epicenter, the North American plate, on which part of the Japanese archipelago lies, slips under the Pacific plate. The temblor was likely triggered when the North American plate snapped upward, releasing the accumulated strain.

The earthquake occurred near the site of another tremor that shook Miyagi Prefecture on Wednesday, so the earlier quake may have been a foreshock, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.

"There aren't many instances in which such a large earthquake occurs right after a magnitude 7-class quake," said an official at the agency. "This is a highly unusual case."

The agency warns that aftershocks registering around magnitude 7 could take place over the next month.

Major quakes have occurred off the coast of Miyagi Prefecture about every 40 years, the previous being a magnitude 7.4 temblor in 1978. Government experts had expected that one registering between 7.5 and 8 would hit, but the latest packed a wallop of magnitude 8.8.

The plate may have shifted over a stretch of several hundred kilometers along the fault on Friday, according to the agency, with some experts putting the figure at upwards of 400-500km.

8.9 magnitude earthquake near Japan rips a 150 miles long gash in the earths crust 50 miles wide

US says Japan earthquake left billions in damage

  • strongest quake in the area in nearly 1,200 years.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A massive earthquake that struck off the coast of Japan Friday was the strongest quake in the area in nearly 1,200 years.

David Applegate, a senior science adviser for earthquake and geologic hazards for the U.S. Geological Survey, said the 8.9-magnitude quake ruptured a patch of the earth's crust 150 miles long and 50 miles across.

He said the earthquake, which also spawned a massive tsunami that hit Japan before racing across the Pacific Ocean to Hawaii and the West Coast of the United States, likely caused tens of billions of dollars in structural damage in Japan.

Laura K. Furgione, deputy director for the National Weather Service, said the tsunami first hit Hawaii early Friday morning. An 8.1-foot wave destroyed piers and docks in Crescent City, Calif., later Friday.

Biggest threat Libyan war is not rising oil prices but declining U.S. credibility

EDITORIAL:

No air strikes from the O Force

  • White House military strategy by armchair commander

The biggest threat from the civil war in Libya is not rising oil prices but declining U.S. credibility. Since President Obama has publicly taken the rebel side in the struggle, it is important that Moammar Gadhafi lose. Despite that message from the White House, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton made clear Thursday that the Obama administration isn’t ready to make any decisions on taking action. While America dithers, French President Nicolas Sarkozy has come out in support of air strikes to support the Libyan opposition. It’s a sad (but no longer rare) day in world affairs when more spine is shown in Paris than Washington.

Obama To Create Gun Czar?

ALERT: Frustrated by some glitches in Andrew Traver's nomination, Obama could create a brand new position for Traver – ATF CZAR!

Select Here - Help SAF Stop Andrew Traver & Defend Your Gun Rights!

Gun rights advocates have thrown a wrench in Obama's plans for Traver. They are making their voices heard and are helping to delay Traver's appointment.

There's just one problem – Obama won't take NO for an answer! If he can't get one of his buddies nominated, Obama simply bypasses the Senate. You can be sure he'll try and find a sneaky way to not play by the rules and shove Traver into a leadership position at the ATF.

Traver: The New Gun-Grabbing Czar?

Everyone knows Obama loves Czars, maybe even more than he loves his teleprompter. He has 32 of them – from a Healthcare Czar to a California Water Czar. And if Obama has his way, we could have a GUN CZAR! Obama can make a new position for Traver at the ATF, such as an Interim Director. If he does, Obama will bypass the nomination process and the Senate confirmation process. And we'll be stuck with an anti-gun Czar in charge of the ATF! We must stop Obama from giving Andrew Traver any position in the ATF!

Pro-choice abortionist federal officials are anti-choice for consumers

Paul wants government hands off his toilet

The Kentucky Republican began making the link between the personal, the political and the plumbing-related when he asked Kathleen Hogan, the DOE deputy assistant secretary on energy efficiency, “I was wondering if you’re pro-choice?”

“I’m pro-choice of bulbs,” Hogan responded.

“Actually, that’s the point,” Paul said, during an appliance efficiency hearing at the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

“The point is that most members of your administration probably would be frank and characterize themselves — and upfront — as being pro-choice for abortion,” he said, “but you’re really anti-choice on every other consumer item.”

SPLC — Black “Hate Groups” Lead the Pack?

SPLC — The Biggest Lie Keeps Getting Bigger

By rkeefe57

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) recently released the 2010 edition of their famous “Hate Map.” As expected, the number of “hate groups” went up… again.

Since these “Hate Maps” generate hundreds of millions of dollars for the SPLC, it only seems right to take a closer look at what the numbers actually mean, (something the mainstream media steadfastly refuse to do.)

Click image to enlarge

Before we begin, let’s get our terminology straight, so we know what we’re talking about. Since the “Hate Map” purports to identify “hate groups,” it is important to understand exactly what is being discussed here.

First of all, there is NO legal definition for “hate group,” which is why even the FBI does not, can not, “track hate groups.” Even the SPLC’s $147,000 donor-dollar-a-year public relations guru Mark Potok has admitted this simple fact.

“The FBI does not monitor groups just because they have “hateful” ideology. There must be some evidence of criminal wrongdoing. (www.usatoday.com, May 17, 2002)

Basically, a “hate group” is pretty much anything Mark Potok says it is. In the past, Potok has said on several occasions that: …a “hate group” has nothing to do with criminality… [or] potential for violence…” Rather, as Potok put it, “It’s all about ideology.”

Nothing to do with criminality or violence, just “wrong thinking.” That has to streamline the “hate group” designation process.

Let’s look at the legend Mr. Potok included with the latest “Hate Map” for more information.

Click image to enlarge

“The [SPLC] counted 1,002 active hate groups in the United States in 2010″ based on its own vague and highly subjective criteria. “Only organizations [...] known to be active in 2010 are included.” Really? Let’s take a closer look.

Utah Legislature goes for gold, silver as currency options

Seen as hegde against dollar slide

The Utah Legislature on Thursday passed a bill allowing gold and silver coins to be used as legal tender in the state — and for the value of their precious metal, not just the face value of the coins.

State backers said they hope the move will help insulate Utah from a potential monetary slide as countries question the value of the dollar. Others, casting their eye nationwide, said it could spur a broader move by Congress or states to readopt a gold standard.

“Utah, if the governor signs this particularly, they’re going to change the national debate on monetary policy and get us back to basics,” said Jeffrey Bell, policy director for Washington-based American Principles in Action. Mr. Bell has been in Utah to help shepherd the legislation through.

Utah’s bill allows stores to accept gold and silver coins as legal tender. It also exempts gold and silver transactions from the state’s capital gains tax, though that does not shield exchanges from federal taxes.

Southern Poverty Law Center tells CNN: Our biggest domestic terror threat comes from the radical right

Radical Right a Bigger Terror Threat Than Jihadis

Mark Potok of the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center claimed on Monday's Newsroom on CNN that radical Islam wasn't "our biggest domestic terror threat," that instead, "that pretty clearly comes from the radical right in this country." Anchor Suzanne Malveaux touted Potok as "expert on extremism" from "one of the most highly regarded non-governmental operations that are monitoring hate groups."

Malveaux brought on the SPLC spokesman at the bottom of the 12 noon Eastern hour to discuss the upcoming hearings by the House Homeland Security Committee on the radicalization of American Muslims. The anchor first asked him, "From your study of tracking radical groups, potentially hate groups, what do you think of this hearing? Is al Qaeda radicalizing Muslims? Is that our biggest homegrown terrorism threat right now?"

So where are the media stories about civility in Wisconsin in the midst's of death threats and as mobs occupy government buildings

‘YOU WILL DIE!’: Read the Shocking E-Mail Sent to Wis. GOP Senators

The following is a shocking, scary e-mail sent to Wisconsin GOP senators last night at around 9:30 pm, shortly after the Senate passed an anti-union bill. Not only does the e-mail threaten the senators with death, but it also vows “your familes [sic] will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks.”

Local station WTMJ in Milwaukee obtained the e-mail, and has redacted the sender’s name pending an investigation by the police (emphasis added and spelling and grammar mistakes have not been corrected):

From: XXXX

Subject: Atten: Death threat!!!! Bomb!!!!

Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your familes
will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks.
Please explain
to them that this is because if we get rid of you and your families then it
will save the rights of 300,000 people and also be able to close the deficit
that you have created.
I hope you have a good time in hell. Read below for
more information on possible scenarios in which you will die.

WE want to make this perfectly clear. Because of your actions today and in
the past couple of weeks I and the group of people that are working with me
have decided that we’ve had enough. We feel that you and the people that
support the dictator have to die. We have tried many other ways of dealing
with your corruption but you have taken things too far and we will not stand
for it any longer. So, this is how it’s going to happen: I as well as many
others know where you and your family live, it’s a matter of public records.

We have all planned to assult you by arriving at your house and putting a
nice little bullet in your head.
However, we decided that we wouldn’t leave
it there. We also have decided that this may not be enough to send the
message to you since you are so “high” on Koch and have decided that you are
now going to single handedly make this a dictatorship instead of a
demorcratic process.
So we have also built several bombs that we have placed
in various locations around the areas in which we know that you frequent.

This includes, your house, your car, the state capitol, and well I won’t
tell you all of them because that’s just no fun. Since we know that you are
not smart enough to figure out why this is happening to you we have decided
to make it perfectly clear to you. If you and your goonies feel that it’s
necessary to strip the rights of 300,000 people and ruin their lives, making
them unable to feed, clothe, and provide the necessities to their families
and themselves then We Will “get rid of” (in which I mean kill) you.

Please understand that this does not include the heroic Rep. Senator that risked
everything to go aganist what you and your goonies wanted him to do. We feel
that it’s worth our lives to do this, because we would be saving the lives
of 300,000 people. Please make your peace with God as soon as possible and
say goodbye to your loved ones we will not wait any longer. YOU WILL DIE!!!!
