Antonia Juhasz, author of “The Tyranny of Oil: The World’s Most Powerful Industry and What We Must Do to Stop It” provides an update to how Iraq’s oilfields, prior to the Iraq invasion, were once nationalized are now being divvied up to international oil conglomerates…the same ones who seem to be benefiting mightily from the recent NATO lead invasion in Libya.
From Democracy Now! “The whistleblowing website WikiLeaks has begun releasing thousands of secret documents from the U.S. military prison at Guantánamo Bay that reveal the Bush and Obama administrations knowingly imprisoned more than 150 innocent men for years without charge. In dozens of cases, senior U.S. commanders were said to have concluded that there was no reason for the men to have been transferred to Guantánamo. Among the innocent prisoners were an 89-year-old Afghan villager and a 14-year-old boy who had been kidnapped. Some men were imprisoned at Guantánamo simply because they wore a popular model of Casio watches, which had been used as timers by al-Qaeda. The documents also reveal that the journalist Sami al-Hajj was held at Guantánamo for six years partly in order to be interrogated about his employer, the Al Jazeera network. Al-Hajj’s file said he was sent to Guantánamo in order to “provide information on … the Al-Jazeera news network’s training programme, telecommunications equipment, and newsgathering operations in Chechnya, Kosovo and Afghanistan.” For more, we speak with journalist Andy Worthington, author of The Guantánamo Files: The Stories of the 774 Detainees in America’s Illegal Prison.

Go Mary! There is no excuse to place McChrystal in the lead of Military families after his cover up behind your son’s death. This is a slap in your face, ma’am, and you and all of our military families deserve better.
“[…]After Cpl. Pat Tillman, the former-NFL-star-turned-Ranger, was accidentally killed by his own troops in Afghanistan in April 2004, McChrystal took an active role in creating the impression that Tillman had died at the hands of Taliban fighters. He signed off on a falsified recommendation for a Silver Star that suggested Tillman had been killed by enemy fire. (McChrystal would later claim he didn’t read the recommendation closely enough – a strange excuse for a commander known for his laserlike attention to minute details.) A week later, McChrystal sent a memo up the chain of command, specifically warning that President Bush should avoid mentioning the cause of Tillman’s death. “If the circumstances of Corporal Tillman’s death become public,” he wrote, it could cause “public embarrassment” for the president.
“The false narrative, which McChrystal clearly helped construct, diminished Pat’s true actions,” wrote Tillman’s mother, Mary, in her book Boots on the Ground by Dusk. McChrystal got away with it, she added, because he was the “golden boy” of Rumsfeld and Bush, who loved his willingness to get things done, even if it included bending the rules or skipping the chain of command. Nine days after Tillman’s death, McChrystal was promoted to major general.
Two years later, in 2006, McChrystal was tainted by a scandal involving detainee abuse and torture at Camp Nama in Iraq. According to a report by Human Rights Watch, prisoners at the camp were subjected to a now-familiar litany of abuse: stress positions, being dragged naked through the mud. McChrystal was not disciplined in the scandal, even though an interrogator at the camp reported seeing him inspect the prison multiple times. But the experience was so unsettling to McChrystal that he tried to prevent detainee operations from being placed under his command in Afghanistan, viewing them as a “political swamp,” according to a U.S. official. In May 2009, as McChrystal prepared for his confirmation hearings, his staff prepared him for hard questions about Camp Nama and the Tillman cover-up. But the scandals barely made a ripple in Congress, and McChrystal was soon on his way back to Kabul to run the war in Afghanistan.”

The nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima Dai’Ichi power plant continues with no end in sight. Everyday we awake to fresh news about one of four reactors exploding, on fire or spewing white, grey or black fumes into the air we breath. Water used to cool the reactors has been freely flowing into the sea and ground water, thereby forever poisoning the very resource necessary to sustain life.
The good people in and around the area were evacuated over a week ago – first 3 then 10 now 20km. When the evacuee’s entered the evacuation centers they were promptly geigered, given face masks and Potassium Iodide to stave off the poisoning of radioactive material.
Outside the center, folks are learning their milk, food, tap and sea water are all reading high levels of radiation. Those who could afford to flee for safety left last week. The US military initially began voluntary evacuations of women and children last week, but has since made said evacuations mandatory.
Homes, businesses and entire towns are destroyed by the awesome force of mother nature. Thousands remain unaccounted for. Mass graves are filling up with the dead with the hope that some day some family member will identify the perished and provide them with a proper burial.
The air these people breath, the water they drink and the soil they till is poisoned forever. There is no clean up process available for radioactive material. None. Zilch. Zip.
It must feel like a living hell in Japan these days. [Read more…]

It’s Movie night at The T-Room. Tonight’s nine part movie is JFK – Executive Order. Rather than spending your resource, that is your energy learning what Mossad just released via WikiLeaks, I invite you to focus your attention on learning how your’s and my life were forever altered in 1963 with the murder of JFK. Yes, RFK and MLK’s murders were carried out by similar CIA assissination teams. The point of tonight’s feature is to start at what I see as the beginning or the roots of the tyranny we the people now live under.
As your host, I will be adding other details and videos in the comment section so you, a proud patriotic American, can learn more details and comment by sharing your own information and details.
Sure this New World Order Khazarian takeover has its roots in treaties signed by our nations Founding Fathers w/the King following the Revolutionairy War and the Act of 1871, Act of 1873 and the Federal Reserve Act in 1913, but JFK’s murder marks the day the NWO ratcheted up it’s takeover.
Watch, carefully listen and learn. JFK’s murder was the day as Don McLean sang, Bye, Bye Miss American Pie –
Part 1 of 9 – the movie that shows the Plan to murder JFK –
Farrakhan has been called many things over the years, but he nails the elites criminal banking system during this two-part speech. The beauty of this speech is our black brothers and sisters are too waking up to the elites New World Order fascist agenda which gives me great hope “together” American’s can turn back this dispicable enslavement agenda.

Dear Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Constitutionalists and Greenies:
This is an open letter especially written to you.
On 9/11 I was readying to go to work when I saw the first plane slam into the WTC on the morning news. I was breathless, stunned, angry and sad all at the same time. I watched in horror when the second plane attacked and a rush of anxiety and fear shimmered through my entire body. The horror of watching it all changed my life and your’s forever. [Read more…]
