New TASER Weapons Produced For Crowd Control
Full article: http://www.prisonplanet.com/
Excerpt(s): Stun gun manufacturer rolls out devices [The Taser Shockwave] that promise to “drop everyone in a given area to the ground”... The weapons can also be vehicle mounted or “daisy chained” according to Taser. Clearly it is anticipated that these things will be used on sizable crowds, meaning an increased likelihood of indiscriminate targeting... The Shockwave isn’t the only new development on Taser’s books either. The Extended-Range Electronic Projectile (XREP) is touted as the first electric shock weapon that can be fired from a normal gun, in this case a 12-gauge shotgun. It delivers a 20-second shock, compared with the default setting five-second shock of a traditional taser X26... Both the Taser Shockwave and the XREP are scheduled to go into full production by the end of this year.
Deconstructing The Power of the Global Elite: Brute Force, The Power to Hurt, and Psychological Control
Full article: http://www.globalresearch.ca/
Excerpt(s): In the aftermath of Congressional approval of bailout legislation granting sweeping powers to the financial elite, the body politic appears to be helplessly mired in the relentless unfolding of classical fascism before its very eyes... The application of these two sources of power by the power elite is not hard to find. With respect to brute force, it is no secret that the US military has been training and arming state and local law enforcement across the country, including supplying some of the same weaponry used in a war zone against an external opponent... But in addition to brute force and the power to hurt, the elite uses another form of power that is chilling in its efficacy: sophisticated techniques for controlling information and, more generally, for controlling the perceptions and behavior of the populace through mental and emotional manipulation of the very reality it experiences... The elite cabal exploits its control over media and entertainment to keep the public misled, distracted and ultimately imprisoned in a matrix of disinformation, rampant consumerism and the lowest common denominators of human nature, including raw violence and mindless sexuality... Huxley's concerns about the newly available non-terrorist techniques for "inducing people to love their servitude" were echoed by Nobel Prize winner Bertrand Russell, who predicted that as a result of the gradual and ruthless use of technological advances, "a revolt of the plebs would be as unthinkable as an organized insurrection of sheep against the practice of eating mutton." A powerful form of psychological control used by the global elite is to induce widespread depression stemming from a feeling of futility or helplessness. This brings to mind the famous quote from Thoreau that most humans live "lives of quiet desperation," which he elaborated on by stating that "what is called resignation is confirmed desperation."... As a practitioner in Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), I have become personally familiar with extraordinary new techniques for healing previously intractable syndromes such as learned helplessness and war-induced post-traumatic stress disorder. As an educator who has worked with children and adults with cognitive disabilities, I have seen next to miraculous results from the innovative methods now available. And, finally, as a human being who reveres the human spirit and its perennial indomitability, I refuse to believe that a small cabal of beings solely in service to self will ever be able to take over the minds and souls of mankind... In my own view, the current crisis is a crisis in the Chinese sense of the term, i.e., an opportunity in disguise... It is an opportunity like no other to awaken and educate the people so they are no longer sitting ducks for the three forms of power delineated in this article.

SOMALIA / Hiding America's Crime: Mogadishu Empty and in Ruins
Full article: http://www.uruknet.info/?p=
Excerpt(s): Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia, has ceased to exist as a city. Inhabited by nearly three million people less than two years ago, and still home to more than a million nine months ago, Mogadishu has been virtually emptied of civilians. Whole sections have been leveled, according to the BBC, in what Human Rights Watch calls "the most ignored tragedy in the world" today. Ignored, that is, by the American and most of the world's media... Human Rights Watch says "the world would be shocked" at the devastation and the plight of Somalia's people, millions of whom are now refugees stalked, bombed and besieged in the desolate southern Somali countryside.
IRAQ / Desert storm revisited: Pentagon finishes off Iraq with nukes?
Full article: http://www.presstv.com/Detail.
Excerpt(s): A US war veteran has accused the Pentagon of launching a nuclear attack on southern Iraq in the final day of the first Persian Gulf War... The Italian station later launched its own inquiry into the claims and found that according to online archives of the UK-based International Seismological Center a seismic event took place on the aforementioned day consistent with a five-kiloton blast. RaiNews24 is to air a 30-minute current affairs report on the issue on Thursday which will include an interview with Jawad al-Ali an Iraqi doctor who says the number of tumors in Basra increased from 32 in 1989 to 600 in 2002. According to the station, the US State Department rejected Brown's claims, saying that only 'conventional' weapons were used in the first Persian Gulf War... Some 30 percent of the 700,000 US servicemen and women in the first Persian Gulf War have reported signs of an illness known as the Gulf War Syndrome (GWS), typified by symptoms including immune system disorders and birth defects. After 10 years of research, no evidence has been found which establishes any specific cause for the range of the health problems affecting Persian Gulf War vets.

Judge sets free 17 Chinese Muslims held in Guantanamo for seven years 'without evidence'
Full article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/
Excerpt(s): The White House today blasted a US court decision to free 17 Chinese Muslims being held at Guantanamo Bay. The dramatic ruling could pave the way for the release of dozens more prisoners from the controversial American naval base in Cuba. In a stern rebuke of the Bush administration, US District Judge Ricardo Urbina said it would be wrong to keep the Chinese detainees behind bars because they are no longer considered enemy combatants. It was the first court-ordered release of Guantanamo prisoners since the camp opened in 2002. But the US Justice Department launched an immediate appeal last night, saying the court order posed a threat to national security.
QUESTIONING WARREN BUFFETT:
World's richest man is more publicly on the world's stage than ever...

Where was Warren Buffett on 9/11?
Full article: http://killtown.911review.org/
Excerpt(s): Mr. Buffett was reportedly at his home in Omaha, Nebraska watching TV when he heard about the terrorist attacks. He was getting ready to host his "last annual golf charity event" which just happened to be at the U.S. Strategic Command headquarters located at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha. Offutt AFB is, coincidentally, where President G. W. Bush flew to on Air Force One later in the day for "safety."... So was it just a coincidence that the 2nd richest man in the world was hosting his "last" annual golf charity event so early that particular morning at U.S. Strategic Command headquarters and what are the odds that a WTC CEO was invited who's offices were right where one of the hijacked airplanes crashed into?... An interesting angle about Ann Tatlock's company, Fiduciary Trust Co. International, is that President Bush's nominee to head the panel that's investigating the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, Thomas Kean, used to serve as the company's director which has a lot of wealthy clients... One interesting note about Ann Tatlock is that she is a trustee of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) along with former Secretary of State and current Carlyle Group advisor James A. Baker III who's law firm, Baker Botts LLP, is defending Saudi Arabia against the trillion dollar lawsuit filed by the families of 9/11 victims... Now if Warren Buffett hosting a "charity event" at the U.S. Strategic Commander headquarters on 9/11 in which one of the invited guests was a CEO who's offices were where the 2nd hijacked plane crashed into at the WTC and that the head of the 9/11 investigation used to be the director of her company doesn't raise an eyebrow or two, then maybe the following little tidbits will. Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. has a subsidiary company called NetJets... Oddly enough, a NetJets executive company jet was "tracking" Flight 93 when it crashed in an open field in Shanksville, PA... Mr. Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. also has a subsidiary company called FlightSafety International Inc., a flight training school... FlightSafety International Inc. is reported to have trained at least one of the alleged 9/11 hijackers... Finally, Mr. Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. has large stock holdings in a company called SunTrust Banks, Inc. and has stock in Coca-Cola... SunTrust Banks, Inc. is one of the banks in which most of the alleged 9/11 hijackers reportedly set up bank accounts with using fake social security numbers.
