Video: Robert Gibbs – Health Care Will Be ‘Law Of The Land’ Next Week; Axelrod To GOP – ‘Make My Day’

WE SHOULD BE AFRAID OF WHAT THEY WANT BECAUSE WHAT THEY’VE GOT HAS DESTROYED THIS COUNTRY

(HuffingtonPost) – The White House is beginning its final push on health care this week, with senior adviser David Axelrod and press secretary Robert Gibbs making the rounds of the Sunday talk shows to express confidence that the bill will pass.

“We’ll have the votes when the House votes, I think, within the next week,” Gibbs said on “Fox News Sunday.” “Whoever sits here at this time next week, I think will not be talking about health care as a proposal, but as the law of the land.” – Video Link Here

‘An attack on Israel would be considered an attack on Canada’

His office says Mr. Kent, the minister of state for Foreign Affairs of the Americas, was merely “paraphrasing” what Stephen Harper has said in the past regarding Israel. Continue reading

Weight Watchers says eat at McDonald’s to lose weight (opinion) – Mike Adams

(NaturalNews) – Weight Watchers has now officially endorsed Chicken McNuggets as a “healthy meal” in New Zealand, where McDonald’s restaurants will begin carrying the Weight Watchers logo on several menu items. This bizarre and inexplicable decision has now made Weight Watchers the laughing stock of the health world where nutrition and weight loss experts normally don’t use “McDonald’s fast food” and “weight loss” in the same sentence.

As The Guardian reports, “As part of the deal, which the company says is the first of its kind in the world, McDonald’s will use the Weight Watchers logo on its menu boards and Weight Watchers will promote McDonald’s to dieters.” Continue reading

MSM: Iran Arrests 30 Over U.S.-linked Cyber Ring

Editor’s note: In February, the Bipartisan Policy Center held a war game and concluded cyber attacks would come from Russian, Chinese, and Sudanese hackers. It now appears the cyber threat in part originates from the CIA-supported Mujahadeen-e-Khalq.
(Reuters) – Iran has arrested 30 people suspected of belonging to a U.S.-linked cyber network gathering information on Iranian nuclear scientists and sending people abroad for training, a news agency reported on Saturday. Continue reading

(KurtNimmo) – Last week it was Jihad Jane. This week it is Jihad Jamie.

“Colorado mother Jamie Paulin-Ramirez was released from custody in Ireland after being arrested in a plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist who angered many Muslims by portraying Mohammed with a dog’s body,” reports ABC News. “Though Paulin-Ramirez was released, her mother said in an interview with ABC News that the 31-year-old woman had been troubled for years, was taunted as a child over a hearing problem and the family was concerned that she had become radicalized.” Continue reading

MSM: Mass. doctor pleads guilty to research fraud

Evidence Mounts NATO Report Lied on Afghan Civilian Killings

The February 12 night raid against a house party in Afghanistan’s Paktia Province remains shrouded in mystery, but NATO’s official story appears to be crumbling as even NATO officials concede that the claims made were not strictly true.

NATO’s official statement claimed at the time that the raid on the home led to a “fire fight” against “several insurgents” who were killed, before NATO made a “gruesome discovery” of bound and gagged bodies in a nearby room.

NATO is conceding now that all of the slain people were civilians killed in the raid. NATO communications direct Rear Admiral Greg Smith also admitted that they had no real evidence that the men slain at the home had ever fired a shot against the NATO forces.

Witnesses at the site reported that one of the people in the compound, a local policeman, shouted “don’t fire, we work for the government” before being gunned down by the invading forces.

Rear Admiral Smith defended the killing of the policeman, however, saying “if you have got an individual stepping out of a compound, and if your assault force is there, that is often the trigger to neutralise (read: kill) the individual. You don’t have to be fired upon to fire back.

Since the incident, all those detained by NATO have been released without charges. In addition, the US has reportedly paid $2,000 to the family for each of the civilians killed in the attack.

MSM: UK Government Global Warming Ads Banned For Exaggerating Risks

(DailyMail) – Two government advertisements which use nursery rhymes to warn of the dangers of climate change have been banned for exaggerating the threat.

Video: They Cooked The Books – The Video That Will Put Geithner Behind Bars – Mike Whitney

(InfoClearingHouse) – You gotta see this! If this doesn’t convince you that the Timothy Geithner knew about the securities shenanigans that were going on at Lehman, than I don’t know what will.

Keep in mind, that Geithner ran Lehman through 3 “stress tests” prior to bankruptcy; all of which Lehman failed, and yet, nothing was done. Anton R. Valukas–the examiner who wrote the 2,200 page investigative-report which was released on Thursday– has provided plenty of information detailing Lehman’s “materially misleading” accounting and “actionable balance sheet manipulation.”

In other words, they cooked the books. Continue reading

It was refusing to pay its British and Dutch debts. Read More Here

Life is Great … But Only If You Are Already Mega-Wealthy

(WashingtonsBlog) – As I pointed out in November:

A report by University of California, Berkeley economics professor Emmanuel Saez concludes that income inequality in the United States is at an all-time high, surpassing even levels seen during the Great Depression.

The report shows that:

  • Income inequality is worse than it has been since at least 1917
  • “The top 1 percent incomes captured half of the overall economic growth over the period 1993-2007″
  • “In the economic expansion of 2002-2007, the top 1 percent captured two thirds of income growth.”

Economy Kept On Life Support While Global Governance Is Organized

(NeithercorpPress) – Winter is slowly melting away here in the U.S., and Spring will soon be upon us. Wall Street is currently flush with delight at the year long run of the stock market (driven by fiat bailouts), which at first glance appears to be doing quite well, though international incidences such as those in Dubai and Greece have revealed how shaky the market actually is in the face of any unhealthy news. In the meantime, the dollar, recently on the edge of detrimental value loss, has made a semi-miraculous recovery in the span of a few months, especially as the Euro suffers. Official employment numbers, despite the continuous loss of jobs monthly, have somehow fallen and are for the moment stabilized. Is it time for America to dust off the old credit cards and return to the wild and rollicking carefree spending days of pre-2007? Perhaps not… Continue reading

Video: Story on Mystery Substance Distracts from Fact Fluoride is a Deadly Killer

(KurtNimmo) – The “investigative” team at WCVB TV in Boston ran a story yesterday about an unknown substance in fluoride imported from China. “Team 5 Investigates found the Amesbury Water Department pulled fluoride from its system amid concerns about its supply from China,” the news station reported. “Department of Public Works Director Rob Desmarais said after he mixes the white powder with water, 40 percent of it will not dissolve.” Desmarais said the residue clogs his machines and makes it difficult to get a consistent level of fluoride in the town’s water.
