US wouldn’t kill our own citizens, blame Iran, and start a war! Oh? FBI allowed ’93 WTC bombing

(Examiner) – We know that the US “leadership” and corporate media are lying for war with Iran with their two principle reasons:
  1. Anyone who spends five minutes can verify that Iran’s President Ahmadinejad never threatened to attack or destroy Israel. The content and context of his October 2005 speech are in support of Palestinian equal treatment under the law from Israel, and compares the Israeli government to former repressive regimes in Iran, the USSR, and Iraq that were all replaced. I challenge anyone to summarize the paragraph in question and rationally conclude any physical threat to Israel. The implications of this fact are world-changing: the proof of Orwellian lies for war with Iran by criminal conspiracy between both political parties’ management and corporate media is beyond any doubt.
  2. Iran has never diverted nuclear material from legal and peaceful use; verified by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in all their reports and testified by their agency directors. The agency seems under political pressure from the US; as votes and official language ignore the facts and purpose of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) to voice concern over what isn’t known. This is as if your supervisor threatened to fire you, saying, “We can verify that you haven’t stolen anything from our observation and accounting of all materials. However, you can’t prove that you haven’t stolen things outside our accounting and observation that we don’t know about. Prove your intentions are to not steal. If you can’t, our suspicions are verified.” This reason concerns “Additional Protocol” that Iran gave administrative agreement to without verification from their legislators, and then withdrew from when the US wouldn’t keep their part of NPT to support Iran’s nuclear energy development.

Video: Fox News scrambles to discredit CPAC after Ron Paul wins presidential poll

(RawStory) – Update at bottom: Paul tells CNBC he’s “leaning to being undecided”
Remember the big conservative conference Fox News has been hyping over the past 10 days?

The Conservative Political Action Conference’s presidential straw poll, a key marker of the mood among conservative voters, apparently didn’t mean anything to the network. And if it did mean something, the only real result is bragging rights for the individual candidates who were so well exposed. And hey, even Dick Cheney showed up.

Or, at least that’s how Fox News characterized the poll, after it was reported that Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) had won it by a wide margin. Continue reading

Video: Bill Gates Calls for Population Reduction

(Infowars) – In a recent TED Talk, Bill Gates has put forward the theory that mankind can reach zero carbon emissions by reducing our population, services, energy and carbon output. And yes, he’s even suggested a trendy, yet totally absurd, equation to legitimatize his eugenicist viewpoint. All I can say is, “What a crackpot!” Maybe it’s because he hasn’t noticed the systematic fraud exposed in the climate-gate debacle or maybe it’s because the mathematics of his equation are so blatantly imbecilic but I can’t help myself from truncated laughter.
