Pearl Harbor: Official Lies in an American War Tragedy
Wednesday, May 24, 2000
Speaker Robert B. Stinnett
Former Journalist, Oakland Tribune and BBC. Author of the books, George Bush: His World War II Years and Day of Deceit: The Truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor.
The great question of Pearl Harbor—what did U.S. government officials know and when did they know it?—has been argued for years. After decades of Freedom of Information Act requests, Robert Stinnett was finally able to examine the long-hidden evidence, shattering every shibboleth of Pearl Harbor. He finds that not only was the attack expected, it was deliberately provoked through an eight-step program devised by the Navy for President Franklin Roosevelt. Could Pearl Harbor have neither been an “accident” nor a mere “failure” of U.S. intelligence nor a “brilliant” Japanese military coup? Could the tragedy at Pearl Harbor have been a carefully orchestrated design, initiated at the highest government levels in order to galvanize a peace-loving American public to go to war? Robert Stinnett will discuss this startling issue in detail.

“A New Pearl Harbor”

12/2/8 "India's 911": U.S.Knew; CIA-ISI Network; Militarization Under 'Soft' Cover; Press - PsyOps Combo; Thai Terror OK

"To make a contented slave it is necessary to make a thoughtless one. It is necessary to darken the moral and mental vision and, as far as possible, to annihilate the power of reason."
Fredrick Douglass

" India's 911", another Hollywood-Bollywood winner - guess who'll get the rights to the final story? Maybe a sequel to the current vile U.S. box-office hit "Slumdog Millionaire". U.S. 'terror experts' instantly fingered Pakistan, specifically citing 'terrorist' groups that are obstacles to the u.s. plans for central Asian restructuring under U.S. 'leadership'. Revolutionaries fighting for national liberation identified as 'terrorists', as mandated by the u.s. global state terrorist war. Media relentlessly solicited Indian comments agreeing India was shamefully unprepared. No reference of course to Five days after the events, media all appear chorus-like to convince us the big crisis facing Obama is 'rising tensions between India and Pakistan, amplified by answers to pointed questions in Mumbai. No mention of fascist Hindu-nationalist terror and slaughter of Muslims and its BJP party efforts to regain state power.

After word got out broadly that the U.S. had known and warned India in October about an impending terror attack by sea on Mumbai, the media twisted this into more expressions of Indian rage at its govt. The inevitable questions why U.S. 'allowed' another 911 to happen to its dear friend India must be on the cutting room floor. But the game turned truly grotesque today as NPR discovered Dharvi, the largest slum in Asia, a city within a city in Mumbia, where over 600, 000 mostly Muslims and immigrants, are crammed in squalid, disease-ridden poverty, only a few toilets, no plumbing, forced to slave for pennies doing dangerous toxic work in chemicals, tanning and recycling -- probably the setting for that obscenely racist glorification of capitalism "Slumdog Millionaire".

11/27/08 Mumbai's Warning Message, by Liz Burbank

Dear digest readers,

This urgent situation in Mumbai involves the world. Mumbai strongly appears to be the trigger needed for a long-planned, widely threatened "calculated international crisis to challenge obama" as the US expands wars in Southeast Asia.The immediate target appears to be Pakistan but the entire world is the goal --- and the imperatives for the u.s. were laid out decades ago by Zbigniew Brzezinski, now an Obama team adviser. “Hegemony is as old as Mankind…” Brzezinski said as former U.S. National Security Advisor. For more background, specific warnings and signs of what's coming to save the sinking ship by restructuring the world and its resources under US hegemony see and

NO THANKS: "The Indians Have Been Fighting Terrorism Since 1492" "Same Shit Different Centuries"

The Truth About Thanksgiving

The people who now describe themselves as `Americans' actually stole their
country from the Native Americans. They put the Indians in reservations
(which got smaller and smaller). The Indians were civilised and spiritual
but they had no guns and were an easy target. America was stolen by force.

At a meeting in New England in 1640 the following motions were put to the

1. The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof.
2. The Lord may give the earth or any part of it to his chosen people.
3. We are his chosen people.

Naturally the assembled bunch of smug, barbarians voted `yes' to all these
motions, and thereby sanctified (in their minds) the theft of a nation.

It was generally agreed that the Indians were savages with no rights and yet

11/23 Signs of What's Coming: U.S., Afghanistan, Pakistan, Asia & Africa: Critical Thinking & Action Urgent

Critical Thinking Amid the Elation  
by Shannon Joyce Prince
"Obama is hiding imperialism, neo-liberalism, and corporatism behind the language of progressivism." 
"It's one thing for masses of white people to assume that racism is 90% over. It's another for a black man, Obama, to tell them this is so."
Obamist sections of the Left seem to believe it "doesn't matter who Obama is, what he does, says, or stands for - he represents hope and change and that's good enough." Some folks are simply misinformed, and therefore blissful. "Many of the people that danced in the streets haven't taken the time to do any research on Obama, so part of their euphoria is based on ignorance." One is expected to partake in the party. "Those who castigate folks for not being appropriately jubilant at Obama's election are insisting that blacks content themselves, in perpetuity, with symbolism instead of real change."    Read more:

Obama Camp Pulls Issue Pages From Transition Site
By Michael Falcone
Keen observers have noticed that the issues pages of the official Obama-Biden transition Web site,, recently went missing and were replaced by a general statement of priorities.
A spokesman for the Obama transition team, Nick Shapiro, who has been fielding inquiries about the disappearance, said that they are “retooling” the site, but did not elaborate further.
When it went live last week, the transition Web site included a detailed agenda section with pages for “Revitalizing the Economy,” “Ending the War in Iraq” and “Providing Health Care for All,” among others. Now, those pages are nowhere to be found.

'Thought Crime Bill' author up for position in Obama Administration
Jane Harman (D - CA) is reportedly on President-Elect Barack Obama's shortlist for a variety of positions in his upcoming administration including CIA director, Director of National Intelligence, and Secretary of Homeland Security. [Harman] slipped the Violent Radicalisation and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act (HR 1955) on a "suspension calendar for non-controversial bills," making the innocuous bill pass effortlessly though the House. In October of 2007, several special interest groups and non-governmental bodies addressed Harman and the House Committee Homeland Security in a briefing entitled "Use of the Internet by Terrorists." The round table discussion was to gain congressional support for S. 1959, the Senate version of The Violent Radicalisation and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act....

"There's been much attention in the press about the fact that those who were left behind in New Orleans were disproportionately poor and African American. I've said publicly that I do not subscribe to the notion that the painfully slow response of FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security was racially-based. The ineptitude was colorblind."
