But so many news stories today are written by corporate PR departments with the slant towards guiding your thoughts about a certain subject. The so called yellow journalism. Indeed, what actual free journalism goes on today? Not much it seems. Mainstream=Corporate.
The School of Communication, Simon Fraser University, under the supervision of Dr. Kathleen Cross has released a study on the most under-reported news stories today. It says 25 but includes 100, some of which may shock you and others only confirm your suspicions of being manipulated. All are relevant to us living in a sane world.
- Like the under-reporting of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Suppressed so the boiling public doesn't decide to take occupying action against the nuclear industry? And we're wondering how radioactive that gyre of Japanese earthquake-meltdown debris floating toward North America is and how it may affect our beaches? Keep your toddlers out of the sun AND the sand!
- Or the fact that so called Big Pharma (nickname for huge pharmaceutical companies) engineer their clinical studies to put a warm light on the use of their drugs. But you watch CNN and see the long lists of ailments from using their drugs, don't you? (side effects always downplayed during the shots of 'all-better-now' smiling actors) Well, you should. Do you care that pharmaceutical company reps are within the US Government FDA agencies right now writing the laws on the use of their drugs? Do you care that they may have omitted the fact that deaths occurred during their testings?
- I don't see it on their list but it is a lingering suspicion on my own; the Gulf oil spill and the fact that there are rumors of it still leaking and the ability of the oil companies to keep people away from the disaster area while they hide the pollution! That is cheating the world but did you think oil companies were ethical? Did you believe they could simply snub the US Government to do what they want? Even keeping the US Navy away and tieing the President of America's hands.
- Would you be shocked to learn that in 2010, in the American Army, 462 soldiers were killed in the line of duty? While 468 committed suicide!
Well of course you would because we only get the reports of 'embedded' reporters now. Those who travel with an Army unit and stage their reporting to suit the military minds. The mental health of war will be ongoing for decades!
- And did you read anywhere about the CETA negotiations? Sort of like NAFTA, no benefit whatsoever to Canada but allowing European corporations access to government procurement actions, to our public institutions like hospitals and public utilities. And all behind closed doors. Like NAFTA. A secret from the people. Does our news media have a don't- ask-don't-tell policy?
The SFU list makes excellent reading or even browsing if you like. And you could, if you cared enough, pick one of these items and make it your own. Something to yell about. Or write about. Or research yourself. Or complain about to your local news source for their lack of coverage.
Spend a little time perusing the SFU School of Communication study. All the items show a Synopsis, Significance, Media Coverage and Original Source Material. Beats the mainstream media's unnamed sources all to hell! Especially when those sources are PR Department flacks.
If you do go and read the study, be sure to go to Appendix A: Alternative & Independent News Sites Used for Researching Stories. This is important for anyone pursuing information on their own. Appendix D has the top 100 Underreported Stories.
Yes we all know that the current news organizations are firmly controlled by corporate interests. And we see the scandal in Britain about movie stars phones being tapped, but it is far more serious than gossip folks, it is about our small planet and your health, your family's safety, and our democratic right to reliable reporting.
And we, as a public interested in the preservation of our very lives, need to know truth, and to recognize where to find it and who is lying to us. The SFU Under-Reported News Study is a tool to use. A source for a further independent pursuit of the real information. Truth.
So one would ask: Are our reporters just lazy, stupid or bought? If there is a reason we are being denied investigative news reporting, that reason must be secret too. But secrecy fosters speculation and conjecture too, doesn't it?
Educate yourself and start using your voice. Information poverty is affecting us all, and they should not be getting away with it.

So the paranoid Americans 'conditioned' Canadians to believe that those wild-eyed terrorists were on their way here too, and unless we go along with their ideas, we'll be unsafe. Left to duck under our beds while the bombs go off. We need the same protection as all red blooded Americans get to keep them safe. Yes.
Well, not exactly. Terrorism hasn't much to do with the real plan.
Because along with the sharing of a national border with America, we will now go ahead with the so-called North American Security Border Perimeter Protection. This allows information sharing, and interoperability, (nice vague word) and Integrated Border Enforcement Teams (IBET). The Civil Assistance Plan of 2008 allows the military of one country to respond to a cross-border domestic civil emergency, at the request of the other country. The Shiprider Agreement of 2009 enables jointly-crewed RCMP and Coast Guard vessels to patrol shared waterways and seaways, with cross-border jurisdiction.
Interoperability also encourages a militarized approach to border crimes such as drug smuggling, contraband and the undocumented movement of people. Already, unmanned drones are patrolling the Canada-U.S. border. Since 9/11, five land and marine military bases have been established close to the Canada-U.S. border as part of the U.S. Northern Border Air Wing.
But don't just think of that border below us, folks, think North too!
Yes this agreement of course, considers OUR borders from sea to sea to sea.
And the third sea is the Arctic. And that's where America wants to be active. And protecting ALL North American borders means using US troops for that task. And allowing those troops to occupy our sovereign border in the Arctic. Why?
To guard against sandy terrorists or Russians sneaking across the diminishing ice floes disguised as polar bears (also diminishing) with high explosives strapped under their bomber jackets and destined for targets in Toronto! OMG! WTF?
Well of course the American and Canadian governments are playing it down. But the result of this new protection we get by signing the agreement, will be to allow America to control the emerging Canadian Arctic resource of billions of barrels of oil beneath those thawing ice packs! Estimated to be about 400 BILLION barrels!
A US based oil company has laid claim to ALL the Arctic oil reserves under OUR North, and has a legal argument based on their proposal that the Arctic's petroleum deposits are the "common heritage of mankind," (the lawyer who thought up that one got a huge bonus) and has argued that the polar region requires a private "lead manager" to organize.
Now wouldn't that conveniently come under the new perimeter border of North America? Of course it would. We need secure oil resources to lessen our dependance on foreign oil and to guarantee $1.00 a gallon prices to those righteous mid-western straw chewers who are still living in the fifties.
So all the talk about helping us poor Canadians get our goods to market across the Ambassador Bridge is subterfuge.
And that's not all. We have water. And lots of it. In a relevant aspect. It has been said that water will be the oil of the 21st century, and that it will cause wars between nations.
Sea water makes up 97.5 percent of all the water on Earth. And not all the remaining 2.5% is drinkable. Of that tiny amount we have an estimated 6 to 20% as renewable resource. That is 20% of about ONE percent, people.
America is in a drought situation and has been for a century or more! Some say the worst in 500 years! And getting scary worse.
Many people believe that the quality CBC TV show Intelligence was cancelled because the Americans were nervous of Chris Haddock's plot direction which was moving toward the US using the FBI and CIA to influence decisions in Canada which would allow America free access to our water! http://thetyee.ca/Entertainment/2007/12/03/NoIntelligence/
The Great Lakes water levels continue to drop. Barge traffic on America's waterways only carry half loads to avoid scraping bottom in those rivers. Americans continue to use up to 350 gallons a day for drinking and sanitation when the world average is 20 to 40 gallons! And again, the big bad corporations are lobbying to drain America's wetlands to put more water into the river systems! Crops are failing, livestock cannot be fed.
And all the while sprinklers are pouring water non stop into the nice green golf courses of Los Angeles, Phoenix and Las Vegas!
America has been looking to the North for years. The Keystone XL oil pipeline is but the first step in draining Canada's liquid resources into America. Why not a water pipeline to follow? Do you think Keystone is a random name? You can bet the idea of a water pipeline is under discussion right now. And the first action will be to 'condition' the Canadian public into accepting the idea.
And it will probably hinge on existing clauses within the new border perimeter agreement to protect us from (once again) terrorists.
The concept has worked on Americans since 9/11 who now have no recourse to sue American corporations for misdeeds or to stop police from tracking you or storming into your home without judicial warrants! And the growth of private security forces, like America's Blackwater, now called Xe, and Canada's Can/Aust Security could be used to subjugate and control an emerging angry populace. (Blackwater was used during Hurricane Katrina, Can/Aust was involved in a plan to smuggle Saadi Gaddafi to Mexico) Homeland security is about to become omnipotent. President Obama has just signed into law, an act that allows the US Military to police the streets, make arrests and jail citizens without charge or US Constitutional protection!
Don't hide under your bed, folks, without looking under it first. You might find a wild-eyed terrorist or a wild-eyed Senator there already. Go back to sleep, that's the only place you'll have freedom.

It may be in the interests of the traveling businessman, corporation or tourist to keep their communications secret, but governments can't stand not knowing what you are doing while passing through their countries.
Sunday, October 9, 2011
That means ALL the cell phone communications, who is making them, and who they are going to. ALL your text messages. ALL your Tweets about whatever you are typing about. ALL your facebook info and what you are saying to whomever you are saying it to. Probably all your RDF information nestled snugly into that new credit card with ALL your recent purchases and where you bought that stuff. ALL your driver's info on that new radio frequency ID chip licence you just got. Probably ALL your health records from that CARE card. Ultimate surveillance.
Where does this all point? Match it up with some of that video evidence of military helicopters in Iraq, targeting smart bombs from a mile up and you can see that with a little cross referencing of who is doing what to whom, and how they can be pinpointed to be 'taken out' by one of those stealth black choppers hovering high over your house, there will be no room for rebels in Future World. (read New World Order) Yul Brenner isn't the bad guy.
So it all points to a slave society, completely under control of a military elite, (Google Blackwater, Xe, Fema Camps) almost helpless to resist the subjugation of the populace.
But there has always been that element in our democratic society of suspicion driven free people intent on resisting the efforts of Big Brother to control us. Sort of the new Hippies of North America. Now add these flower-haired freedom seekers to the rebellious M15 toting Minutemen, who are ALSO suspicious of anything the government tries to control free people and you have an odd marriage of those who think free and others who also value freedom and have enough weaponry to throw a wrench into the takeover attempts of whatever cells the CIA, NSA, Shadow Government, et al have in mind for the people of North America.
Moonchild Mary, meet Redneck Skywalker, say I do and I will and get on with the kiss, we're gonna need this marriage in Future World.
We have work to do.

After months of investigation, it reported that Kennedy was killed by Oswald's rifle shots from the Texas School Book Depository and that Oswald's murder by Jack Ruby two days later was not part of a conspiracy to assassinate Kennedy.
Its findings were later questioned in a number of books and articles and in a special congressional committee report in 1979, though no conclusive contradictory evidence was found.
One of those first books, Rush to Judgment, by lawyer Mark Lane, pointed out that the conclusions in the Summery, those few pages that most people and reporters read, had little to do with the volumes of actual evidence in the content.
Today a believer of this, 'Oswald alone', conclusion is rare. And because that summery seemed falsified, it berthed a lifetime of conspiracy theories about the President's death.
Even following the interesting side story of the trail of Officer Tippit on that day and you might join the legions of disbelievers.
The members of that Warren Commission were -
- Earl Warren - Chief Justice of the United States. Eisenhower offered Warren the post of solicitor general, with the promise of a seat on the Supreme Court. But before it was announced, Chief Justice Fred M. Vinson unexpectedly died in September 1953 and Eisenhower replaced him with Warren. As Chief Justice of the United States some said many of his decisions were 'inappropriate'.
- Hale Boggs - Died mysteriously in a plane crash while flying over remote Alaska in October, 1972 . Wreckage never found. In April 1971 he had made a speech on the floor of the House in which he strongly attacked J. Edgar Hoover and the whole of the FBI.
- Gerald Ford - Future President. Ford commented in his own report that the CIA destroyed or kept from investigators critical secrets connected to the assassination.
- John Sherman Cooper - In the general election in 1954 Cooper was defeated by Alben W. Barkley a Democrat who had been Vice President under Harry S. Truman but Barkley subsequently died, and Cooper was elected to fill his unexpired term in 1956.
- John J. McCloy - He was initially skeptical of the lone gunman theory, but a trip to Dallas with Allen Dulles, an old friend also serving on the Commission, in the spring of 1964 to visit the scene of the assassination convinced him of the case against Lee Harvey Oswald.
- Allen Welsh Dulles - Director of the CIA. It evolved under his directorship into a team of assassins. One member, Frank Sturgis, claimed: "this assassination group (Operation 40) would upon orders, naturally, assassinate either members of the military or the political parties of the foreign country that you were going to infiltrate, and if necessary some of your own members." (Sturgis was also one of the Watergate burglars) Dulles and his staff were forced to resign in September 1961 when President Kennedy reportedly said he wanted to "splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds."
The Warren report's lack of candor furthered antigovernment cynicism, which in turn stimulated conspiracy theorists who propounded any number of alternative scenarios, all mutually contradictory, and all going strong today.
Who can you trust?
In a new revelation by Jackie Kennedy she recently revealed her suspicions of LBJ. And we all know she married Onassis simply because he was the one man in the world who could actually protect her from an 'unexpected' death.

Today there were bombings all over the troubled nation. In a dozen cities using a combination of parked car bombs, roadside bombs and a suicide bombers driving vehicles. It seems there are no secure areas in the whole country. The scope of the violence is only increasing in spite of the Iraqi and US forces. Even within the so-called Green Zone, of Bagdad suicide bombers are able to move about, coordinate their people and kill when they want.
As the American effort winds down the question looms larger than ever; Can Iraq govern itself? It is like the religious groups are just waiting to begin their civil war. Only this time Iraq will not have a strong Saddam Hussein directing an army to control the insurgents. What will happen to all the building and infrastructure implemented by the US? It looks to many as if Iran will play a large role in cooperation with Syria to allow control of this huge and valuable part of the Middle East. Iraq has a huge portion of the known oil reserves.
In this 'George Bush War' as some call it, the question also haunts the West whether leaving Saddam alone and dealing with him would have been the realistic and sane answer. Indeed, the best strategy for peace. Alas, it seems GW Bush was intent on vengeance over sanity.
In Afghanistan, a similar scenario awaits. The Taliban are stronger than ever. Al Qaeda operates freely. The control of the country centers in only a small part of Kabul. Everywhere else is intensely dangerous. The poppy crop is burgeoning and opium production is higher then ever before, some even suspect the CIA of encouraging it. While they use armed spy drones near Pakistan to try to limit the expansion of the insurgents.
President Hamid Karzai, the inserted ruler, has little control, is often refered to as the Mayor of Kabul because his influence is so limited, and is also suspected of actually working against the US. But he fled the country once before and is totally likely to follow the US troops out whenever that happens again. Leaving what?
Of course Afghanistan will descend quickly into tribal conflict with warlords, drug cartels, Taliban and al Qaeda all tearing it apart once more. The country will go back 200 years overnight.
And what will be the legacy of these costly adventures in muslim countries? Perhaps only a newly inflamed hatred of the West, and especially the United States.
It seems that the correct and safe strategy in Afghanistan would be to let them sort it out themselves, no matter how hard it will be to watch from afar, and then deal with the winner, who no doubt will be a strong brutal leader, and who has democracy furthest from his intentions.
In Iraq, the new hope to deflect the efforts of Syria and Iran would seem to be a new Sunni leader, like Saddam, someone who can keep the Shiites at bay and Iraq's two volatile neighbors inside their own borders.
It remains to be seen if the shadowy cadre of insiders in the US government will allow anyone but the Saudis to control the oil flow into the US and anyone but their choice of who supplies the bulk of heroin into America. And it is all above and beyond the input of a US President, that control is already gone.
However it works out, the sad conclusion drawn by many is that these American adventure wars which cost so much in brave young lives may have been all in vain.
It IS time to leave.

The world is spiraling downward. The stock markets are actually crashing. The US had its credit rating lowered for the first time in history. Canada is doing just okay but pundits all say we'll be close behind America when it plunges. Dragged down with Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, and others on the brink of something bad. And no one seems to know what to do about it all.
Well correct that ... lots of people know what to do, but the power brokers in charge of actually doing something aren't about to upset their own plush limousines.
Do you believe it? China has actually warned the US to watch its step and get its act together. China.
OMG. Shouldn't that be the exact opposite? Shouldn't the Western world be warning the backward countries about their spending behavior? How did China emerge with so much power?
Well, the truth is, the greed of the West gave it to them. For example, years ago Canada sent technology and effort to China to help them mine their minerals and ores. By building the mines and mills and sending them equipment necessary to produce goods from those ores.We knew how to do it, they didn't. Then they weren't able to transport those ores to the mills so we sent them all those huge Euclid trucks. To help them out. All free. Paid for by the Canadian government. America did exactly the same thing countless times. So China got the product out of the ground, built their own factories, and set about undercutting American factories and bankrupting the economies of North America!
We as a free enterprise democratic society condoned the actions of the few rich who needed to do 'business' with these Marxist Communists. To sell them stuff. Any technology the West didn't give the Chinese they simply stole through industrial espionage. All this while they suppressed and oppressed their population with the brutality of their regime. While we looked away.
Nixon opened up China and is heralded for that. But by who? The billionaires who added to their fortunes with deals in China. Those inside deals enriched a very few while destroying workers at home. And it went round and round until today the Chinese hold the debt balance for America. They have successfully destroyed the North American steel industry, the manufacturing industry, high tech is going or gone, nothing left but the pizza shops and Wendy's. Farming controlled by Monsanto. Health by offshore pharmaceutical corporations. Even space is being taken over by Chinese rockets!
The Arabs hold the other half of this equation by strangling us with artificially high oil prices. Courtesy of their confidant, George HW Bush. The Tea Party Conservative Republicans pound away at Obama without a single mention of the costs of the two wars they started. Estimated by the end of this year to be 1.3 TRILLION dollars! Isn't that almost what the US is in debt for?
It's like the powers that be are lining up their tanks in a row to bring down the world so they can emerge as the keepers of the New World Order. The consequences too frightening to imagine.
We did this to ourselves by allowing power and greed to take precedence over home interests. We dealt with the Devils in China and Saudi Arabia who tore apart the fabric of what was a proud world-leading America. The home-grown foreign devils in America might be the losers, however. If there is nothing left to control who wins?
We did this by tolerating corporate greed to overrun our governments. And over-rule our governments. And to place their needs above those of the population. We did this by allowing people like the Bushes and Cheney to ignore what the founders and builders of America had in mind and to set the dominoes of democracy falling. We did this by allowing Enron to slip into oblivion, by forgetting Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and now likely Rupert Murdoch. We did this by not yelling for our media to tell us what is really happening. We did this by accepting the glowing reports of 'embedded' reporters in those wars. Like Afghanistan where the so called Western Coalition has only a small zone in Kabul barely under control. We did this by allowing BP to spill and hide the results and not answer for their stupidity. We did this by not demanding that Obama order the Navy into the Gulf to supervise and control the 'cleanup' and tell us the truth.
If the world plunges into chaos, we have only ourselves to blame for our complacency and acceptance of nefarious doings at our expense. We did this by ignoring the phrase, power of the people, for the people. It is not rhetoric, it is truth.
We did this.

Sean Hoare, a former News of the World employee was discovered at his home in Watford, Hertfordshire, after concerns were raised about his whereabouts. The death is being treated as 'unexplained'.
The police say it is not suspicious because he hurt his nose and foot lately.
It involves Rupert Murdoch, who has politicians, news media, and police under his control.
They say it is not suspicious.
You bet it is.

Want to see what CCTV can do in a city? Now in Vancouver, technology enabled with face recognition that will identify you no matter where you are. Just scan the pic yourself, zoom in, and in more, and more. Is that you? Your friend? You said you weren't downtown on Game 7 night? Ah, but there you are.
Too late already.
No smiles please, these are government 'spy on you' pictures. You are used to seeing the riot pictures taken by cameras in the crowd and cell phone cams, but these are future shock.
go here .... Gigapixel_com - 2011 Stanley Cup Game 7 Canucks Fan Zone
Ronnie Miranda's panoramic gigapixel photo shows the Georgia Street Canucks fan zone during Game 7. Zoom in to incredible detail.
Sorry the pic is not able to be posted here, but is certainly well worth a look at your future Vancouver in the streets.
In London England, where they have thousands of spy cameras, you are presumed to be on camera 300 times a day if you have occasion to be in the downtown streets. Picadilly Circus will never be the same and neither will Granville Mall.

Watch the video. Your own filter bubble is being built by someone else.
Julian Assaunge, Wikileaks founder,
"What are the differences between Mark Zuckerberg and me? I give private information on corporations to you for free, and I'm a villain. Zuckerberg gives your private information to corporations for money, and he's Man of the Year."
William Colby, former CIA Director,
"The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media."
Zbigniew Brzezinski, former Carter National Security Advisor,
"The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities."
Noam Chomsky, philosopher, activist,
"For those who stubbornly seek freedom, there can be no more urgent task than to come to understand the mechanisms and practices of indoctrination. These are easy to perceive in the totalitarian societies, much less so in the system of 'brainwashing under freedom' to which we are subjected and which all too often we serve as willing or unwitting instruments."
Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister,
"It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion."
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Jacques Ellul, French philosopher,
"The goal of modern propaganda is no longer to transform opinion but to arouse an active and mythical belief."
Adolf Hitler, in Mein Kampf,
"All propaganda has to be popular and has to adapt its spiritual level to the perception of the least intelligent of those towards whom it intends to direct itself."
David Rockefeller, at a Bilderberg Meeting, 1991
"We are are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination [read as 'democracy'] practiced in past centuries."
George W. Bush,
"Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists."
Sir Winston Churchill,
"Everybody is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people’s idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage."

We condemned the Taliban a few tears ago because they destroyed age old monuments in Afghanistan. They did this because those monoliths were more about Buddhism than Islam. Taliban militiamen wrecked the almost 2,000-year-old Buddhist masterpieces in the central province of Bamiyan, including the world's tallest standing Buddha measuring 50 meters (165 feet).
Afghanistan is home to an array of pre-Islamic historic treasures from its days as a key stop on the ancient Silk Road and a strategic battleground for conquerers dating back to Alexander the Great and the Aryans before him.
The two massive Bamiyan Buddhas, carved into a sandstone cliff near the provincial capital in central Afghanistan, were built around the second century.
Appeals for their preservation came from the United States, France, Germany, Thailand, Japan, Sri Lanka, Iran, Pakistan, Germany, Russia, India and UN Secretary General Kofi Annan.
Recently, the Nato organization confirmed that they will not hesitate to destroy ancient Roman ruins in Libya. Nato will bomb Roman ruins
"We will strike military vehicles, military forces, military equipment or military infrastructure that threaten Libyan civilians as necessary," a NATO official in Naples told CNN, declining to give his name in discussing internal NATO deliberations. But he said the alliance could not verify rebel claims that Libya's leader may be hiding rocket launchers at the UNESCO World Heritage site of Leptis Magna, a Roman city between the capital Tripoli and rebel-held Misrata.
The city appears to have been founded by Phoenician colonists sometime around 1100 BC. The town did not achieve prominence until Carthage became a major power in the Mediterranean in the 4th century BC. Then became part of the Roman Empire.
Isn't this the very same outrage those Western countries were so terribly opposed to in Afghanistan?
Just who is the bad guy here?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leptis_Magna

Skype has a free download version.
So what you can do, is get a phone number of your friend, wherever they are, then you start the program, click stuff and contact your friend. They can be across town, in Florida, or Nairobi and you suddenly can text talk, voice talk and SEE them live and in living colour!
Wonderful program for Grandmas contacting their grandchildren, or offices doing impromptu sessions about their contracts, or anyone else who wants a live contact look.
So here we go again with my slant on it. First you might want to review some of my previous posts about Microsoft, and the reasons I believe they are beholden to the CIA, NSA or Homeland Security. Once you digest that, you'll either go away shaking your head or begin to realize the same things that these watcher agencies would love: an in with Skype.
It is believed that Microsoft may include Skype with Windows 8.
Having it built into their operating system means they can tinker however they like with the intricacies of the program, meaning what it does and how it does it. Perhaps even when it does it.
Imagine Skype being controlled or reporting to 'someone' what it sees from the top of YOUR computer? A spy master's treasure trove. An intrepid innovation.
Lends another aspect to big brother watching you, doesn't it? Who needs a satellite looking down at you and seeing your rooftop when the watcher can be right inside your house!
UPDATE: Was I right or was I right? Today, May 27, it was just announced that a recent 'glitch' on Skype has been fixed! And even though you have not been able to use it for a few days, you can now download the updated 'fixed' software version and get right back on!
Skype blames overloaded 'supernodes' for the failures, and says they are fixing them, trying to reassure you that hackers were not responsible for the downtime. Right, always blame hackers. Concentrate your attention on the imagined bad guys so you don't notice the real bad guys at work.
Is this a suspicion confirmed? So Microsoft buys Skype, shuts it down while they and/or the US Government Sneak Department installs new spyware, then you load the update that could make your webcam record you in your home without turning on your little light.
Will we need to turn off the lights and whisper within our own homes soon? Will this KGB like intrusion become the Stasi or the Tonton Macoutes one day?
We need to go back to the woodshed days when we had a place to talk privately. Or Tony Soprano's basement.
Here is the link -
Meanwhile, they're saying the Skype system is a little slow right now. Could that be because it is classifying and organizing the 25 million subscribers at the moment? Perhaps with face recognition software after taking all your pictures?
Paranoid? You tell me.

But of course you knew that when you signed up and revealed almost everything about yourself. Didn't you. Didn't you?
Assange believes - Facebook [sic] is a giant database of names and records about people, maintained voluntarily by its users but developed for U.S. intelligence to use. “Everyone should understand that when they add their friends to Facebook, they are doing free work for United States intelligence agencies, and building this database for them,” Assange said.
While Assange doesn’t claim that Facebook is actually run by U.S. intelligence agencies, the fact that they have access to its records is — in his view — dangerous enough.
Well, you signed up. And filled out a profile, telling all about yourself.
Your place of work. Your DOB, Date of Birth, Place of Birth, which ALL police forces use for ID. Who your Mom and Dad are. Who Grandma is. You even entered in the maiden name of your Mom! Maybe what your first dog's name was. Where you live, work and play. What you like, perhaps that you like murder mysteries in your reading and movie preferences. That you still like Bob Dylan protest music. And under Philosophy, innocently tucked into the list, your religion and political views.
And then you put a nice clear picture of yourself up for all to see.
Then you started looking for your friends, close and long lost. And in doing that you gave facebook the actual PASSWORD to your email account. So they could get and use the names of all your contacts on that account. Friends, family, employers, business accounts. To help YOU of course.
Wow, cross referencing in the extreme.
And not only that, they can still access your email to see what you are sending to whom right now!
So if that buddy in high school, (remember Freddy that you thought was so funny at fourteen) had grown up and his third cousin on his uncle's side became a grandma killer, YOU are now associated with him. Remember, you typed HIS name into a search and found Freddy. And you asked him to be a friend.
And lo and behold, Freddy responded back to you and befriended you all over again! And he had a friend, who has a friend. And that third cousin is also in HIS database, from a prison cell. But of course you don't know that. And anyone looking at these kinds of records would KNOW that YOU are no grandma killer.
You love your grandma.
But wait. We assumed that a human would just look at these things and say it was only George looking for Freddy. They have nothing to do with creepy murderous cousin. But of course it is NOT a human surveilling you. Only a computer that constantly adds information to the database. That only searches for keywords and names. The computer that links you with murderers, thieves and highwaymen! And your picture. Nice head shot. Perfect for face recognition software to memorize.
Did you know that if you go to the big game, buy your tickets from a scalper when you get there, enter the gates, your face can be recognized going in. You are NOT anonymous. And even if you snapped a quickie from your built-in webcam, you allowed facebook to access the camera. But didn't set a NO access after the pic. You see how sneaky these things are? And it IS possible to hack into your puter and turn OFF the light that tells you your camera is active. Sorry if this is disturbing. Lends a whole new meaning to 'big brother is watching', doesn't it?
We all know that any social media, any ISP host, information storage, cloud storage, or any other databased web storage is subject to the Patriot Act and the scrutiny of Homeland Security. And here is the good part for the spyers: by law you cannot be told you are being watched. So any dark agency of the government or secret cell of the CIA can simply click in to everything you do on facebook, and record your entries, comments, opinions, private emails, and personal info. Anytime.
Too late. It isn't a reasonable logical sympathetic human being watching you. Only a computer that is building a labyrinth of webbing items about you. Damning contacts made up of those triggered keywords and alarmed phrases. Red flags to your personality. Betraying keystrokes.
This goes way beyond just recording your ISP number or the unique serial number of your hard drive. The conclusions of you being monitored by facebook are endless and dangerous.
What about Julian Assange? There is talk of charging him with treason in the US. Of course he is Australian, in Britain and he has yet to go to Sweden, but let's not let nationality into it.
They are watching you. You can't watch them.

Now Apple allows the built in GPS tracking system in the iPhones and iPads to follow your every move and record your whereabouts. Where you are, and where you were! And the information is stored for months!
They know where you've been, who you called and you can bet they know what you said to whomever you spoke to. Sent an email or text message? Those are simply digital signals, a series of 1s and 0s that go through a Satellite on their way to your friend. Interceptable of course.
Make no mistake that this revelation of Apple products is preordained, even though Apple has said, "The reason the iPhone stores so much data is a bug we uncovered and plan to fix shortly." A bug? A bug in most people's comprehension is something that screws up your dialing, or causes the call to abort, or loses numbers. A bug doesn't perform a complicated task!
The company added they will release a software update to correct this situations AND another update that will also fix another apparent 'bug', which prevented iPhone and iPad 3G users from being able to turn off location logging on their mobile devices.
Even when turned off the iPhones kept sending data! And many iPhone and iPad users expressed outrage last week when two data researchers uncovered a secret file stored on Apple's mobile devices.
How does a company like Apple have something secret installed in their software without their knowledge? The answer? They don't.
Making you feel creepy? Sorry, put the gun away, I am only the messenger.
You can try to switch off the GPS tracking device on your iPhone. That is if you believe it will work. Maybe you'd be better to buy a cheap phone from China, do you care if the Chinese government tracks you from Beijing?
Check out the story and Apple's feeble excuses ....

A scary report by Jeremy Scahill in The Nation (Blackwater’s Black Ops, 9/15/2010) revealed that the largest mercenary army in the world, Blackwater (now called Xe Services) clandestine intelligence services was sold to the multinational Monsanto. Blackwater was renamed in 2009 after becoming famous in the world with numerous reports of abuses in Iraq, including massacres of civilians. It remains the largest private contractor of the U.S. Department of State “security services,” that practices state terrorism by giving the government the opportunity to deny it.
Many military and former CIA officers work for Blackwater or related companies created to divert attention from their bad reputation and make more profit selling their nefarious services-ranging from information and intelligence to infiltration, political lobbying and paramilitary training – for other governments, banks and multinational corporations. According to Scahill, business with multinationals, like Monsanto, Chevron, and financial giants such as Barclays and Deutsche Bank, are channeled through two companies owned by Erik Prince, owner of Blackwater: Total Intelligence Solutions and Terrorism Research Center. These officers and directors share Blackwater. One of them, Cofer Black, known for his brutality as one of the directors of the CIA, was the one who made contact with Monsanto in 2008 as director of Total Intelligence, entering into the contract with the company to spy on and infiltrate organizations of animal rights activists, anti-GM (genetically modified) and other dirty activities of the biotech giant.
Contacted by Scahill, the Monsanto executive Kevin Wilson declined to comment, but later confirmed to The Nation that they had hired Total Intelligence in 2008 and 2009, according to Monsanto only to keep track of “public disclosure” of its opponents. He also said that Total Intelligence was a “totally separate entity from Blackwater.” However, Scahill has copies of emails from Cofer Black after the meeting with Wilson for Monsanto, where he explains to other former CIA agents, using their Blackwater e-mails, that the discussion with Wilson was that Total Intelligence had become “Monsanto’s intelligence arm,” spying on activists and other actions, including “our people to legally integrate these groups.” Total Intelligence Monsanto paid $127,000 in 2008 and $105,000 in 2009.
No wonder that a company engaged in the “science of death” as Monsanto, which has been dedicated from the outset to produce toxic poisons spilling from Agent Orange to PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), pesticides, hormones and genetically modified seeds, is associated with another company of thugs. Almost simultaneously with the publication of this article in The Nation, the Via Campesina reported the purchase of 500,000 shares of Monsanto, for more than $23 million by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which with this action completed the outing of the mask of “philanthropy.” Another association that is not surprising.
It is a marriage between the two most brutal monopolies in the history of industrialism: Bill Gates controls more than 90 percent of the market share of proprietary computing and Monsanto about 90 percent of the global transgenic seed market and most global commercial seed. There does not exist in any other industrial sector monopolies so vast, whose very existence is a negation of the vaunted principle of “market competition” of capitalism.
Both Gates and Monsanto are very aggressive in defending their ill-gotten monopolies. Although Bill Gates might try to say that the Foundation is not linked to his business, all it proves is the opposite: most of their donations end up favoring the commercial investments of the tycoon, not really “donating” anything, but instead of paying taxes to the state coffers, he invests his profits in where it is favorable to him economically, including propaganda from their supposed good intentions.
On the contrary, their “donations” finance projects as destructive as geoengineering or replacement of natural community medicines for high-tech patented medicines in the poorest areas of the world.
What a coincidence, former Secretary of Health Julio Frenk and Ernesto Zedillo are advisers of the Foundation. Like Monsanto, Gates is also engaged in trying to destroy rural farming worldwide, mainly through the “Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa” (AGRA). It works as a Trojan horse to deprive poor African farmers of their traditional seeds, replacing them with the seeds of their companies first, finally by GM.
To this end, the Foundation hired Robert Horsch in 2006, the director of Monsanto. Now Gates, airing major profits, went straight to the source. Blackwater, Monsanto and Gates are three sides of the same figure: the war machine on the planet and most people who inhabit it, are peasants, indigenous communities, people who want to share information and knowledge or any other who does not want to be in the aegis of profit and the destructiveness of capitalism.
The author, Jeremy Scahill, is a researcher at ETC Group, an international civil society organization dedicated to the conservation and sustainable advancement of cultural and ecological diversity and human rights.
There have been various denials to this article. (originally published in Mexico City's La Jomada newspaper and translated by Pravda, in Russia.)

The Western powers against Gadhafi threaten a No Fly Zone. He gets the message. The reason for the zone is to stop him from pummeling his own people with air power when the suppressed people are trying to get rid of him.
If he tries to fly more planes against his own people the Western alliance/coalition will intercept and shoot them down. That's how I thought it would go.
They started by bombing 'military' targets. Anti aircraft sites. Radar installations. Then tanks etc. No doubt using the B2 stealth bomber. Although a missile went into his compound in Tripoli, along with the denial that they are trying to kill him outright. Since this event started, these combined air forces have continued to attack and destroy various ground targets.
It seems to me that this is not a protection of a no fly zone but a war being carried out. The next step of course, is an army on the ground which would amount to an invasion. This idea has already been excused as NOT an army of occupation, NOT an invasion, but specific troops doing specific jobs.
The problem is there is no leader and coherent opposing force among the Libyan rebels. One of those specific jobs should be to simply target Gadhafi and kill him, then wait for whatever happens with the so called rebels. Someone will emerge.
Killing Gadhafi is the simplest and most efficient way to resolve the situation. But it doesn't allow for the war games going on presently. The testing of weapons and forces and troops. All over again, ala Iraq.
The US has once again assumed leadership to police the world. The Arab League was on board at first, also wanting to get rid of the tyrant, but one can see their mounting hesitation to be seen as onside with America in the killing of Arabs, (and Muslims) far beyond deposing Gadhafi.
And many are wondering exactly what the US agenda is regarding Libya? Do they want to define what happens there? Do they want to ensure a government acceptable to them? Do they want to secure yet more oil?
Is there another secret plan afoot?
Consider this: The US gets most of its oil imports from Saudi Arabia. If they could guarantee the same amount of oil from other sources, the Saudis would become less important. And almost every time the US relaxes its guard, the Saudis betray them. Sponsoring terrorists around the world who ultimately threaten the US way of life. The Saudis are the bosom buddies of the Bushes, not Americans. It seems that with other major sources of oil, America could finally confront the duplicitous Saudis with the truth. They are, after all, as an absolute Islamic Monarchy, on unstable footing too. Are there still American bases on Saudi soil that the Arabian people don't even know about?
It gets complicated doesn't it?
And we really know little of what is really going on. Since the advent of 'embedded' reporters. CNN reporter Nic Robertson recently blasted Fox News reporters for putting their own slant on the actions in Libya. And Michael Ware often disputes what the mainstream media tells us. And there's no chance of an embedded reporter getting PTSD.
We rarely get the truth.
We have to wait and see. With trepidation. It looks as if the Libyans only wanted what the Egyptians got; the removal of an arrogant and brutal tyrant with peaceful protests. But in the North Africa controlled by Gadhafi anything goes, and the Western powers belief that those Libyans want a western style democracy may be way off base.
They want a freedom defined by their own rules. Not ours.

It seems to be spinning out of control and one wonders if we are irreversibly destined to just ride out the spiraling plunge helplessly. Is it too late for people in every country to take control over their own destiny? Seems so.
It is like we are headed for another dark age.
The latest disaster in Japan seems to bring it to our attention once again as the ones in charge of the nuclear facilities seem to be lying outright about their problem, or are emitting only squeaks when questioned about the dangers. Once again the Company seems to be more important than the people it is supposed to serve. Protecting business is everything, the consequences to the population are secondary.
This attitude is tragic but prevalent.
We saw the same situation with the BP oil spill. But everyone thought that with Obama as President, things would be different. We all believed that after seeing the executives and CEOs of the company lying about the effects and circumstances, that Obama would step in with the US Navy and take over the effort and then use the assets of BP in America to pay for it all.
We got a clue then that even the President of the most powerful nation in the world was owned by private business and hogtied by corporate agenda and secret lobbied deals over what the population of the whole USA wanted and needed. Trust.
And somehow BP managed to ride it out. We no longer even look to see what is going on in the Gulf of Mexico, despite rumors that the leak is still ongoing and the oil is lying on the bottom of the sea and sealing it from recovering itself. Expanding the already acknowledged, 'Dead Area' with a coating of sludge.
Out of sight.
Both these horrific events only show that the corporations were totally unprepared and unable to prevent the disasters once something went wrong. Their planning and designs were completely inadequate. And maintenance was even ignored. But alas, their bullying and cover-up propaganda was well executed.
We've had bank crashes, the mortgage crises, the Enron scandal, all these affecting the well-being of thousands of people but bringing profit to business. We've had 911, nefarious military actions and criminal intent in foreign countries. The ignoring of the US Constitution regarding prisoners and even within the White House. People are trying to simply live on this planet, but are too dizzy with the twisting top that is our world to rise up in defence of real freedom and truth and justice when it comes to corporations and the way they operate today.
We have found out that trade agreements are about business and not people and only advantage corporations and their drive for profits and exploitation of the resources of other lands. Foreign policy is actually laid by these corporations. Individuals have little to gain from international trade agreements. And now we're even being cautioned by a controlled news media that those who are telling us and the other populations of the world that they are being cheated on, and revealing these underworld actions, are the bad guys.
Knowledge to the people is being dispersed with disinformation.
All the dictators in the Arab oil states were perfectly acceptable to the West until their own people rose up against them. And the West tacitly agreed with the Emirs or Shahs or Potentate's methods, however brutal, while siphoning that oil back into American gas tanks. And now the West just looks at the situations unfolding with the fallacy that these people are moving toward American Style democracy. Not so, they are just rising against the cruelty of a regime.
The West no longer has models to look up to.
Somehow, the world's peoples need to take hold of their own future. The trust is gone. True values and moralities are ignored. The secret agenda is becoming apparent. And a dark age looms ahead of us on a world-wide scale.
The World needs an adjustment.
Question everything. Find your own truth.

'U.S. diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks reveal the Bush administration drew up ways to retaliate against Europe for refusing to use genetically modified seeds. In 2007, then U.S. ambassador to France Craig Stapleton was concerned about France’s decision to ban cultivation of genetically modified corn produced by biotech giant Monsanto. He also warned that a new French environmental review standard could spread anti-biotech policy across Europe.'
The French do have a reputation for going in their own direction. And they have influenced the EU to ban GMOs.
This latest cable shows that US Diplomats in Europe were instigating their own government to find ways to PUNISH the EU farmers because they did NOT want to buy MONSANTO genetically modified seeds (GMOs) or food products! The side effects suspected by GMOs is staggering, including modified organisms that have NEVER been in the human food chain! The recent upsurge of allergies in children for instance, is being blamed on global warming ... but ...
Strangely enough, while linking this subject of Monsanto and GMO side effects, I found more than a few websites about this subject to have redirections or other insertions that disallow you to see the site. Hacking? By who? Let your own mind mull that one.
Many who have travelled or visited France, understand their reverence for food. The French style of food production, preparation and quality takes precedence over everything else! When you are on a passenger train, it can actually be rerouted to a side rail while a food train bringing fresh Strawberries from Provence to Paris races by at breakneck speed, so important is that freshness. And dining is what many tourists go to Europe for in the first place. American lobbyists have for decades been trying to change the German Purity Law (reinheitsgebot) to allow certain chemicals and ingredients to be added to beer brewing. GMO wheat for one example.
The EU has banned GMOs in general, but you can see that they are under huge pressure to change.
It is estimated that in North America, 80% of all the foods we now eat contain GMO products. Which by the way, are suspected of all those harmful side effects or possibly even DNA altering effects? Compliments of Monsanto Chemicals and others. And many wonder why the FDA is not protecting Americans?
It was also revealed in the latest cables released that some US diplomats were working directly FOR Monsanto! No wonder the USA is mad at Julian Assange but we can only hope they keep revealing these things.
Is WikiLeaks all bad for spilling this? Didn't they also reveal lately information about how the big banks cheat the world? Didn't they also reveal the duplicity of the Chinese with information showing while they were calling for the West to reduce satellite potential weapons they were secretly developing their own? Do we want to continue to hush and pretend these revelations don't concern us? Will we go on believing that the powers that be are working in OUR best interests? Is America complicit in their attitude to corporations who have no interest in the well being of the populace other than profit? Is the USA becoming the rogue state in the world! Are there things we need to know that no one but WikiLeaks will tell us?
Get going on your own research and see where it leads you. Are you some of the people some of the time? Or all of the people all of the time?
So again; Is WikiLeaks bad or good?

Then the stories exploded into mainstream news and became world wide events.
40,000 Devil crabs in Britain. Thousands more Starlings in England with blood coming from their beaks. Other Doves in America with a blue substance on them. Jackdaws dead in Sweden. Snapper fish in New Zealand. More birds in Italy and Brazil. Thousands of Spot fish in Chesapeak Bay, hundreds of seals washing up in Labrador. The Russians say they have seen two million birds die.
Some scientists say it is the flu. But wouldn't even birds just sit down with the flu? Would they go flying in flocks? They tell us pollution, parasites and disease can cause mass deaths. Yet post mortems are inconclusive. These fortean events seem to be indescribable by those who should know.
So what exactly IS causing mass deaths of certain species? Why are they happening so suddenly everywhere?
Perhaps one needs to look towards HAARP. The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program tucked into the forest in Alaska, operated by the US Air Force.
HAARP runs an ionospheric research program associated with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. (DARPA) Its overt purpose is to analyze the ionosphere and investigate the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance purposes. There are many speculations about it's covert purpose.
The most prominent instrument at the HAARP Station is the Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI), a high power radio frequency transmitter facility operating in the high frequency (HF) band. The IRI is used to temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere. Other instruments, such as a VHF and a UHF radar, (these frequencies fall into the microwave range) a fluxgate magnetometer, a digisonde and an induction magnetometer, are used to study the physical processes that occur in the excited region.
The esoteric tech words describe the process. It has been said that HAARP can now pinpoint areas on Earth, and actually make clouds boil! Reminders of Tesla research. We are wondering how accurate and how focused these areas can be?
Hmm. Got your tin hat on yet? So, could this recent activity of dead animals be the result of creating and pinpointing very narrow excited areas? Using finely directed microwaves could mean sending them anywhere, even underwater.
It is said the apparatus for HAARP is a reversal of a radio telescope; antenna send out signals instead of receiving. HAARP is the test run for a super-powerful radiowave beaming technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere by focusing a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything - living and dead.
But then just boiling an area with high power microwaves would certainly cause ALL the creatures in that area to die. Why only specific species?
Is there a genetic connection? Can certain genes be excited by a specific frequency pulse wave? Is HAARP experimenting with that right now? Is it possible that parts of DNA chains can be analyzed, as in targeting a certain known and unique gene within an RNA chain? That would account for only one species of birds at a time falling dead while others just fly on. Beaming in on a specific gene can be done chemically now. As in smart pills and brave pills fed to the US Army. And other chemicals that can target race, for instance. Can frequency be used?
Scientists have experimented and discovered that 7.83 Hz (earth´s pulse rate made a person ‘feel good´ producing an altered-state. 10.80 Hz causes riotious behavior and 6.6 Hz causes depression. They have made extreme low frequency (ELF) waves change RNA and DNA. These waves naturally exist in the earth´s ‘electromagnetic' cavity, the space between the ground and the ionosphere. These ‘earth brainwaves´ are identical to the spectrum of our brainwaves.
Is the use of HAARP's powerful potential being focused into a pinpoint for military use? What exact power could that be? Control of Earth's weather? Control of your brain? Control of your DNA? Manipulation of your DNA? An advance of Tesla technology to make the ultimate military weapon. Is it the Star Wars of the future future? Is 1984 a bit late but here?
And we are not even suggesting tsunamis, the recent activity of many volcanoes, the Haiti earthquake or the floods in Australia have anything to do with HAARP. But ... um ....
There are more questions than answers about HAARP, which will always be the way of military installations where secrecy is foremost.
But some of us begin to wonder about Earth's mysteries.
Give me another stick of gum, I need more tinfoil.

Tuesday, January 4, 2011
Wheeler was a man who served his country over a lifetime and had a huge list of accomplishments:
a graduate of Harvard and Yale, West Point Academy, Army Officer, a staff officer at the Pentagon, wrote manuals on biological and chemical munitions, worked within President Ronald Reagan's administration, responsible for the Vietnam War Vet memorial, worked with both Presidents Bush, and for the Securities Exchange Commission in the early 80s, was Special Assistant to the Air Force Secretary until 2008 developing the cyberspace research center, worked for a defense contractor as a consultant, had day to day interactions with the office of the Secretary of Defense. In short, did a lot of work for various causes and military and government institutions.
But did that 'defense contractor' phrase twig you too? You have to dig to find more. I was looking for a connection to Haliburton, of course, but learned other strange things. The defense contractor was the Mitre Corporation, described as the creepiest secret corporation one could imagine. The Mitre corporation is headed by a former Director of Central Intelligence! Appointed by Henry Kissinger! And the Mitre Corp has connections the FAA, the US DoD, Homeland Security etc.
And with Ptech.
Ptech is a secretive software computer company owned by a Saudi and suspected by some to have placed software coding insertions into military and government computer systems on 9-11, enabling an over-ride condition on all of them. They have been investigated and accused of connections to terrorist financing. They are also important in the development of Oracle, a database system used by the US Department of Homeland Security.
The specific job of these two is to look at the interoperability issues the FAA has with NORAD and the Air Force in case of emergency. You know, like the emergency of 9-11 for instance when NORAD and the whole US Air Force failed to protect anyone. (gawd it's hard not to type Dick Cheney right now)
The truck delivering garbage to the dump was stopped after seeing the body in its trash and its route determined after discovering the body in its trash. The route was miles from his home.
Further digging points to items about the murder of Wheeler. His neighbors complained about his TV blaring for two days but no one appeared to be home. When police went in they took away two chairs and the floorboards they had been placed on! Hmm, every spy show turns up the TV volume as they torture someone. His wife had been away. He was seen in other areas (10th and Orange streets in Wilmington) not on his route home.
What did Wheeler know that cost him his life? From his connections, he knew everything. Was his death a warning to others?
The cause of his death has not been confirmed and the police are awaitin toxicology reports and more forensic testing. The FBI is also involved. Wheeler was 66.
So it goes on. A conspiracy theory in the birthing. Wheeler evidently felt his country had let down Vietnam war vets. Did he feel a repeat scenario with Gulf War vets? Did he know something about 9-11?
2 - ongoing -
Now a taxi driver has been interviewed by the police as a result of Wheeler's cell phone being found. The police did not reveal this, the cabbie did.
The taxi driver's number was IN Wheeler's phone data bank. Not as a call but as a contact! He said he has no connection to Wheeler, never knew him, but does give out business cards to customers who ride in his cab. But he declared that Wheeler had never been in his cab. The strange part of course, is why would Wheeler have taken the number off the card and added it into his data bank? IF he did.
They interviewed the cabbie known as Scottie twice and one interrogation lasted over three hours. Which leads one to wonder why so long?
And the cabbie declared that he thought he was being harrassed. Which implies two more ideas: one is that the police believe Scottie knows more than he is telling. Two, is that THEY know more than they are telling. As in they KNOW what they are after, but aren't saying, therefore making any interview longer because they have to work around protecting their own knowledge without exposing it.
Hmm. Was Wheeler about to or had he made a stealth contact with some entity like WikiLeaks? One of the warnings on the WikiLeaks website advises carefully on how to contact them without placing yourself in jeopardy; like not being in your immediate area, even to saying to make sure the postal place you might use has no surveilance cameras etc. Is that why Wheeler was far away from his usual route home?
Other classmates from his West Point days who were still immediate friends, say it would have taken two or more to hoist his 255 lb body into a dumpster.
Am I the only one who thinks this way? No!
