PressTV: Bush administration officials didn’t just let 9/11 happen, they made it happen: Scholar  
[Vid US President George W. Bush didn't get back to the White House on September 11, 2001 until after 7:00 pm.]

An American philosopher and researcher says the administration of George W. Bush deserves full blame for the September 11, 2001 attacks, which were orchestrated to implement the Project for the New American Century.

James Henry Fetzer, who is also a journalist with Veterans Truth Network and a retired professor in Madison, Wisconsin, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Wednesday, while commenting on the ongoing feud between Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and Jeb Bush over the 9/11 attacks.
On Friday, Trump blamed George W. Bush for the September 11, 2001 attacks. In response, Jeb said his brother, George W. Bush, is not responsible for the 9/11 attacks.
"Look, my brother responded to a crisis, and he did it as you would hope a president would do. He united the country," he told CNN on Sunday. "He organized our country, and he kept us safe."
“The exchange between Jeb Bush and Donald Trump over whether George W. Bush deserves blame for the attacks of 9/11 deserves an unequivocally affirmative answer, yes, yes, yes. He is responsible at least on two different levels,” Professor Fetzer said.
“In terms of the official account, which we know to be false, the Bush/Cheney administration received many warnings about the possibility of terrorist attacks, even including a memorandum that Condoleezza Rice acknowledged during the investigations into 9/11 that would subsequently take place, asking whether --even actually affirming -- that Bin Laden was planning to strike in the United States. So even on the most superficial, trivial level the answer is yes,” he added.
“But on the deeper level, the situation is far more profound, because George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleezza Rice, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, General Richard Myers, Rudy Giuliani, Larry Silverstein, and others were more profoundly involved in making the arrangements that led to 9/11, which were intended to transform American foreign policy from one in which -- at least officially -- we have never attacked any nation that has not attacked us first to one in which we became an aggressive nation, striking first in Afghanistan, after we had appealed to the Taliban to turn Osama bin Laden over to us,” he continued.

Professor Fetzer said the Taliban “responded quite reasonably that they would be glad to that if we could show that he had something to do with [9/11]. We said, ‘We would.’ But we didn’t, because of course we couldn’t.”
“Osama had nothing to do with it. 9/11 was brought to us by CIA, the neocons and the Department of Defense. It comes from the Project of the New American Century, and the Mossad,” he noted.
“The work in New York appears to be primarily the work of the Mossad, but the rest seems to have deeply involved elements of the American government, especially at the Pentagon, where that building -- the most heavily defended in the world -- could never have suffered the indignity of an aircraft attack, were it not the desire of the government, where Dick Cheney himself appears to have issued the stand down order to ensure that the plane -- not actually Flight 77, but simulating it -- that the plane would approach the Pentagon and then fly over, at the same time explosives were set off,” the researcher pointed out.
The September, 11, 2001 attacks, also known as the 9/11 attacks, were a series of strikes in the US which killed nearly 3,000 people and caused about $10 billion worth of property and infrastructure damage.
US officials assert that the attacks were carried out by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists but many experts have raised questions about the official account.
They believe that rogue elements within the US government orchestrated or at least encouraged the 9/11 attacks in order to accelerate the US war machine and advance the Zionist agenda.
Professor Fetzer said that “there’s a great deal about this now online, where I personally interviewed Major General Albert Stubblebine (USA, ret.), who was in charge of all US military intelligence, on The Real Deal Episode #100 about the 9/11 aircraft; and he agreed, based upon the evidence I presented, that all four of the aircraft sites were fabricated or faked albeit in different ways.”

[Vid The Real Deal Ep # 100 The 9/11 Crash Sites with Maj. Gen. Albert Stubblebein (ret.) ]

“The plan was to take advantage of the demise of the Soviet Union in 1991 and create a new American empire that would endure for the next 100 years, if only we would move swiftly into the Middle East and exert military and diplomatic pressure outwards. That was the plan, as I explained on The Real Deal Episode #103 with Dennis Cimino, beginning with the Israeli security firm, ICTS, handling security at Logan, Newark and Dulles Airports,” he stated.

[Vid The Real Deal Ep # 103 911 Who Was Responsible & Why ]

“You can see how far it went. We did of course invade Afghanistan immediately, and a couple of years later, Iraq.  It was part of the project what Wesley Clarke described ‘taking out seven governments in the next five years’, beginning with Iraq and Libya, and ending with Syria and Iran,” the American scholar said.
“It’s now been brought to halt, but not for lack of trying. Trillions of American tax payers’ dollars have been expended, tens of thousands of American lives [have been lost], and millions of Middle Eastern lives have died in the effort to benefit Israel,” he pointed out.
“None of this has been of any use for the United States, but it has benefited Israel tremendously up to the point that where Russia has now intervened to secure Syria and fight ISIS, which of course was a creation of the United States,” the political commentator emphasized.
“The whole situation has left the Middle East in chaos, and for that we can thank George W. Bush in both levels,” he observed.
Professor Fetzer concluded that Jeb Bush's assertion that George W. Bush “kept us safe, was not only false on the superficial level, but was much more significantly false on the more profound level, because his administration arranged for it -- they didn’t just let it happen, they made it happen -- when it comes to 9/11.”

CIA Threatens 9/11 Researchers Who Discovered “Explosive Evidence of A Coverup”
By Sean Adl-Tabatabai
Global Research, October 22, 2015
The Right Scoop 14 October 2015
The CIA have issued legal threats against the film producers of ‘9/11 Press for Truth’ who found explosive evidence of a cover-up regarding the intelligence the agency had.
Producers Ray Nowosielski and John Duffy were contacted by the CIA on September 8th, 2015, regarding their extensive research, interviews and findings that led them to discover the identities of two key CIA analysts who were instrumental in covering-up the events of 9/11.
The film’s producers initially only referred to the CIA analysts by their first names, but expressed their intention to later reveal their full identities in a forthcoming “investigative podcast”, which seemingly prompted the agency to step in.
“While producing our investigative podcast “Who Is Rich Blee?,” intended to be released on Sunday, our team managed to deduce the likely identities of two CIA employees at the heart of a notorious failure in the run up to the September 11th tragedy.” a statement reads on the producer’s website, which was offline for most of yesterday.
“On Thursday, we submitted our script to CIA along with a request to interview the two employees,” the statement continues. “We wanted to be fair in giving them a chance to tell their sides of the story. Instead, the Agency sent us a message threatening that if we went forward with the names included in the piece that it would be a potential violation of federal criminal law.”
Duffy and Nowosielski also interviewed former counterterrorism czar Richard Clarke, who told them on the record that he has intelligence that three former top CIA officials — George Tenet, Cofer Black and Richard Blee — knowingly withheld key information on the alleged hijackers from the White House, the FBI, Immigration and the State and Defense Departments.

U.S. Tells Iraq: If You Ally With Russia Against ISIS, “You’re Our Enemy”

Obama makes clear that America's war against Russia is more important than America’s war against ISIS.
By Eric Zuesse
Global Research, October 22, 2015
On October 14th, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that the U.S. government had turned down the proposal from Russia’s President Vladimir Putin for the U.S. and Russia to cooperate together to eliminate ISIS and other jihadists in Syria and in Iraq. Lavrov said:
“We’ve made Americans the proposal announced by President Vladimir Putin yesterday. We suggested that they send a [US] military delegation to Moscow to coordinate a number of joint steps, and after that we could have sent to Washington a top-level delegation led by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, [but] … It is sad that our American colleagues in this case in fact do not side with those who fight against terrorism.
Then, on Tuesday October 20th, as CBS News online reported the following day,
“The U.S. has told Iraq’s leaders they must choose between ongoing American support in the battle against militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and asking the Russians to intervene instead. Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Tuesday that the Iraqis had promised they would not request any Russian airstrikes or support for the fight against ISIS.”
However, Iraq already had done precisely that — and had even said that Russia seemed more committed to defeating ISIS than America is. As I summed up on October 10th:

Israel’s March of Madness. Towards an Ultra-nationalist, Racist, Religious Society
By Uri Avnery
Global Research, October 22, 2015
Caravan Daily 20 October 2015
Israeli democracy is sliding downwards. Sliding slowly, comfortably, but unmistakably.
Sliding where? Everybody knows that: towards an ultra-nationalist, racist, religious society.
Who is leading the ride?
Why, the government, of course, that group of noisy nobodies which came to power at the last elections, led by Binyamin Netanyahu.
Not really. Take all these big-mouthed little demagogues, the ministers of this or that (I can’t quite remember who is supposed to be minister for what) and shut them up somewhere, and nothing will change. In 10 years from now, nobody will remember the name of any of them.
… there is only one group in the country that is strong enough, cohesive enough, determined enough to take over the state: the settlers.
If the government does not lead, who does? Perhaps the right-wing mob? Those people we see on TV, with faces contorted by hatred, shouting “Death to the Arabs!” at soccer matches until they are hoarse, or demonstrating after each violent incident in the mixed Jewish-Arab towns “All Arabs are Terrorists! Kill them all!”
This mob can hold the same demonstrations tomorrow against somebody else: gays, judges, feminists, whoever. It is not consistent. It cannot build a new system.
No, there is only one group in the country that is strong enough, cohesive enough, determined enough to take over the state: the settlers.

Another Step Forward For 21st Century City State Feudalism
Newsletter from UK Column https://www.ukcolumn.org/
Feudalism does not, as one might think, require a society of kings and noblemen with peasants living in mud huts any more than to be a fascist requires the wearing of a swastika.
Rather, a feudal society is one where 95% of the population is treated like ill-fed, poorly educated (if at all) cattle (or perhaps in these heady days "pigs" is a more appropriate analogy?), where there is no hope of a better life for the next generation, and where the top 5% live as an oligarchy, feeding off the rest via their corporations, supported by their unelected puppet masters (think tanks, NGOs) who manage the so-called elected representatives.
One of the key authors of the Lisbon Treaty was Giuliano Amato, erstwhile President of Italy. In an interview with Barbara Spinelli*, printed in the Italian daily La Stampa on the 13th July, 2000, Amato explained his vision for the future:
“Frankly, I do not want a continental Europe only, without the immense patrimony of England, and of the Scandinavians linked to England. Nor would I like to lose Spain, which is skeptical of the vanguard … To have England among us would not be bad: In many ways, London is already where we would like to be. It would not be bad if England, with its experience of economic reforms, were present in the council of States belonging to the euro … Therefore I prefer to go slowly, to crumble little by little pieces of sovereignty, avoiding sudden shifts from national to federal powers … I do not believe in a federal sovereign, because our globalised universe is post-Hobbesian.”
Spinelli: “The world you describe seems to be pre-Hobbesian. It seems to precede the nation-state.”
Amato: “And why not going back the period before Hobbes? The Middle Ages had a much richer humanity, and a diversity of identity which today can be a model. The Middle Ages is beautiful: It can have its policymaking centers, without relying entirely on anyone. It is beyond the bounds of the nation-state. Today, as then, nomads are reappearing in our societies. Today, also, we have powers without territories … Without sovereignties, we will not have totalitarianism. Democracy does not need a sovereign.”
So, the idea is for a return to middle ages style feudalism, which was characterised, for the vast majority, by a complete absence of rights or justice, by short life expectancies, and by rampaging war and disease. To consider this “beautiful” is insane, is it not?
City States
Another characteristic of the middle ages, was the City State, and there lies the second front in the destruction of the nation state.
The modern drive to re-establish the City State came in April, 2006, with the “First Transatlantic Conference of Mayors,” held in Lyon, France.
Opening the conference, Denver Mayor, Wellington E Webb said, “If there is one theme that I would like to impart during this session, it is: the nineteenth century was the century of Empires. The twentieth century was the century of nationstates. The twenty-first century will be a ‘century of cities.’”
The Policy Of Dictatorship
So just as the Lisbon Treaty moves power from soveriegn nation state governments to an unelected dictatorship, the City State takes power via devolution. In combination, they leave the nation with no power of self determination, because in the end, the City State will only exist to implement the policies handed down by the unelected dictatorship of think tanks and NGOs.
This political architecture will be known as "participatory democracy". It represents the goal of a centrally managed, global, fascist dictatorship. The key elements are being put in place slowly, but surely.
So as the Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill 2015-16 reaches committee stage today, ask yourself, who is driving this policy of devolution and City States? What is their motivation?
Is David Cameron being honest and truthful when he implies it is all his Big idea?
I don’t thinks so.

Re: Another Step Forward For 21st Century City State Feudalism
Brian (I assume) talks about a corrupt form, feudalism in democracy clothing.
Nothing can be more corrupt than the present oppressive coporatocracy we live under that is laughingly presented as democracy. If your vote mattered you wouldn't have one. Ask the Irish that were told by the EC to vote again and come back with the EC desired outcome.
Is Brian suggesting we keep (un)representative democracy?

Participatory democracy
From Wikipedia
Participatory democracy is a process emphasizing the broad participation of constituents in the direction and operation of political systems. Etymological roots of democracy (Greek demos and kratos) imply that the people are in power and thus that all democracies are participatory. However, participatory democracy tends to advocate more involved forms of citizen participation and greater political representation than traditional representative democracy.
Participatory democracy strives to create opportunities for all members of a population to make meaningful contributions to decision-making, and seeks to broaden the range of people who have access to such opportunities. Since so much information must be gathered for the overall decision-making process to succeed, technology may provide important forces leading to the type of empowerment needed for participatory models, especially those technological tools that enable community narratives and correspond to the accretion of knowledge. Effectively increasing the scale of participation, and translating small but effective participation groups into small world networks, are areas currently being studied.[1] Other advocates have emphasised the importance of face to face meetings, warning that an overreliance on technology can be harmful.[2]
Some scholars argue for refocusing the term on community-based activity within the domain of civil society, based on the belief that a strong non-governmental public sphere is a precondition for the emergence of a strong liberal democracy.[3] These scholars tend to stress the value of separation between the realm of civil society and the formal political realm.[4] In 2011, considerable grassroots interest in participatory democracy was generated by the Occupy movement.
Continues https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Participatory_democracy

It boils down to reclaiming sovereignty then rebuilding a democratic society from the bottom up. Participatory democracy could only be totally subverted in the way representative democracy has been if all the colleges were to be controlled. Difficult when the politicians are within range of rotten tomatoes, bad eggs and a punch, possibly the stocks could be reintroduced for ne'er do wells like we have now.
Rules are proposed, voted on locally, each college returning a yes or no. Clean slate of all current laws with common law holding control in the interim while laws that are clearly stated to be less than common law, any conflicts resulting in the retraction of any new law in full.
Positions held to be expenses only to keep out the careerist yes men.
As an outline suggestion.

Rotten to the Core
by Martin Edwards 24th June 2015
In addition to the operation of the Common Purpose Effect in Rotherham MBC and Nottingham Councils are there any additional shared characteristics that link these Public Bodies together? UK Column research teams believe that the answer to this question is a loud yes!
What are core cities and do they link to UN Agenda 21?
The Core Cities Group is a self-selected and self-financed collaborative advocacy group of large regional cities. The Core Cities Group has wide ranging interests, encompassing transport and connectivity, innovation and business support, skills and employment, sustainable communities, culture and creative industries, climate change, finance and industry, and governance. The Core Cities website proclaims that "we are a united voice for the importance of our cities in delivering our country’s full economic potential, creating more jobs and improving people’s lives". It also states that "Leadership across the Cities takes in all three major political parties. Whilst coordinated in each City by the local authority, the wider Core Cities partnership takes in other public, private and community sector interests and agencies across each cities wider economies".
These are the same type of cross sector partnerships that we uncovered in both Rotherham and Nottingham and are those promoted within the United Nations Agenda 21 document.

German chancellor strikes sordid deal with Turkish government to block refugees
By Martin Kreickenbaum
22 October 2015
Necessity knows no law. True to this motto, German Chancellor Angela Merkel travelled to Istanbul on Sunday to negotiate the terms of a joint plan of action between the European Union and Turkey previously agreed upon by the EU heads of state.
The aim of the plan is to ensure that refugees are stopped before they reach the gates of Fortress Europe. Turkey is to serve as a buffer zone for refugees from Syria and Iraq and assume the role of the EU’s leading border guard. In return, the EU is prepared to meet Turkey’s demands regarding the country’s membership negotiations.
The joint plan of action stipulates that the Turkish coast guard in the Aegean Sea play a more aggressive role in intercepting refugees. So far this year, only 50,000 refugees were intercepted, while 450,000 were able to reach the coast of Greece. To put an end to this, the Turkish coast guard is to undergo technical upgrades and collaborate with the European border protection agency Frontex and the Greek coast guard.
Central to the plan is the acceleration of a readmission agreement, under which Turkey is tasked with taking back refugees who have entered Greece, Bulgaria or Romania. In addition, the EU will finance the construction of six new camps for more than 2 million refugees.
The regime in Ankara is asking in return that the EU meet its demands in five areas. Membership negotiations, stalled since 2013, are to be resumed. The Turkish head of state is to be invited to EU summits, visa requirements for Turkish businessmen are to be eased, Turkey is to be added to the list of “secure states of origin,” and, finally, the government in Ankara wants €3 billion from the EU for the construction and maintenance of planned refugee internment camps.
In a joint press conference with Merkel, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu declared that he was ready for better cooperation, but complained that his country spent $7.8 billion on taking in 2.2 million Syrian and 300,000 Iraqi refugees. He said, “Firstly, the sharing of the refugee burden should be fair. The amount of aid ... is secondary. What is more important is the common will to tackle this issue. Turkey has been left alone in recent years.”
Merkel offered to “support the acceleration of the visa process” as long as Turkey agreed to sign the readmission agreement. In addition, she held out the prospect of resuming membership negotiations. “Germany is ready this year to open Chapter 17, and make preparations for [Chapters] 23 and 24.”
Chapter 17 refers to a shared economic and finance policy, while Chapters 23 and 24 typically relate to questions of cooperation in the area of justice, security and human rights.

UK Labour Party paves way for Syria intervention
[Corbyn caved in to zio and Israeli regime illegal ambitions]

19 October 2015
Prime Minister David Cameron said he would call for a vote on military action in Syria only if he had a “consensus” in parliament. In response, the Labour Party shadow cabinet has signalled its backing.
Cameron’s cautious formulation was due to the fact that in August 2013, the Conservative-Liberal Democrat government was defeated in parliament on the issue of air strikes in Syria when the Labour Party, under then-leader Ed Miliband, voted “no” alongside other opposition parties and Tory rebels.
Labour felt obliged to register its protest due to overwhelming public opposition to war in Syria, as well as concerns within the military that the UK had no plan for victory.
In the aftermath of that vote, Labour did everything it could to make amends—voting for air strikes limited to Iraq in September last year with only 24 MPs voting against. Nevertheless, with a slim majority in parliament and having suffered a 30-MP rebellion in 2013, the Conservatives need the backing of an estimated 35 Labour MPs to be sure of success.
Cameron already had every reason to be confident, given reports that 50 Labour MPs would back action. But this could have been politically challenged, given that Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader of the Labour Party by a landslide in September on the basis of his declared anti-austerity and anti-war policies. He said then that he could not think of “any circumstances” under which he would support the deployment of British troops.
However, instead of fighting for his position, Corbyn has relinquished all political initiative to the pro-war forces in the Parliamentary Labour Party. He appointed a majority of pro-war, right-wing MPs to his shadow cabinet, including Hilary Benn as shadow foreign secretary and Maria Eagle as shadow secretary of state for defence.
At Labour’s September conference, a debate on whether to bomb Syria was relegated to 20 minutes on the final day. Delegates passed a non-binding motion opposing UK bombing missions in Syria unless backed by the United Nations, but given that Russia and the US are both bombing Syria the lack of a UN resolution is no longer considered an insurmountable obstacle. In addition, the Labour Party conference motion supported setting up so-called “safe havens,” maintained by no-fly zones and troops under a UN Chapter 7 resolution permitting military action.

Beyond an artificial world
by Jon Rappoport October 3, 2015
(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)
Futurists are inclined to predict a world in which AI (artificial intelligence) will take over a major portion of what is now human activity.
In a matter of decades, for example, they say one computer will have more capacity than all the human brains on the planet put together.
Then, the prediction goes, AI will be virtually human, or more than human.
However, just because AI has greater computational skills than any person or group of persons, where is the quality that makes it human?
In order to answer that, you have to perform a little trick. You have to say that humans are really only high-class machines.
Many pundits have no difficulty with this, because they see humans as problem solvers, period. And that’s what a machine is.
It’s just like the genes-cause-everything hypothesis. Since all existence is assumed to take place on a material level, on a physical level, it’s only a matter of time until we figure out which genes create which human qualities. Eventually, we’ll have a complete map.
Then, if we want to change humans, we just tinker with the genes.
It turns out that this style of reasoning can be used to justify external control of Earth’s population. The assumption is: we are already living in a closed system of cause and effect, so that system IS controlling all human behavior. Gene tinkering and handing over immense decision-power to advanced computers is nothing more than re-arranging the closed system. It was closed and it is closed and it will be closed. No problem.
Right now, the system appears to dictate wars and pain and suffering, so won’t it be much better when the gene-reconfiguration and the computers eliminate that aspect of things?
Believe me, many scientists are thinking along these lines, and they are serious about their goals.
They consider themselves humanitarians.
I bring all this up, because there is really only one way to defeat this kind of thinking.
You need to acknowledge that a prime aspect of existence is non-material.
Non-material means: without a rigid cause-and-effect structure.

Record-Breaking Major U.S. Hurricane Landfall Drought Continues
Cooler Heads 09 Oct 2015

While acknowledging in his landmark climate policy speech that “no single weather event is caused solely by climate change,” President Obama quickly added: “But we also know that in a world that’s warmer than it used to be, all weather events are affected by a warming planet.”
That’s a clever way to have one’s cake and eat it. Don’t claim “carbon pollution” is “solely” responsible for any “single” weather event, just link it to bad weather in general. Political implication: Blame the Koch Brothers!
What happens, though, when a nation experiences record-breaking good weather? How would Obama explain it? To what (or whom) would he impute responsibility?
Hall and Hereid (2015), a study published in Geophysical Research Letters and reviewed this week on CO2Science.Org, reports that “not since Hurricane Wilma in 2005 has a major [category 3 and larger] hurricane made U.S. landfall,” and that this nine-year major hurricane “drought” from 2006 to the end of the 2014 hurricane season is “unprecedented in the historical record,” which extends back to 1851. The current “drought” beats the previous record-holder, an eight-year period (1861-1868) with no major U.S. hurricane strikes.
We’re now more than four months into the 2015 hurricane season. If the drought persists through December, the nine-year record will become a 10-year record.
Using a climate model built on correlations of sea-surface temperature and El Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) behavior with U.S. tropical cyclone data from 1950 to 2012, Hall and Hereid estimate that nine-year periods with no major U.S. hurricane landfall strikes happen, on average, only once every 177 years.
So at least in one important respect, the U.S. is enjoying an unusually-long streak of good weather. Hall and Hereid attribute the record-breaking absence of major hurricane landfalls to sheer dumb “luck” rather than climate change. Or, as most non-superstitious people once assumed before the Age of Global Warming, ‘weather happens,’ both good and bad.

Netanyahu blames mufti of Jerusalem, not Hitler, for Final Solution
Is he guilty of holocaust denial?
David Duke October 22, 2015 at 9:15 am
Commentary — In his effort to demonize the Palestinians, Israeli PM Netanyahu has contended that it was the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem who suggested to Hitler to “burn the Jews.” In his comments to the World Jewish Congress he said that,
“Hitler didn’t want to exterminate the Jews at the time, he wanted to expel the Jews,” Netanyahu said in the speech. “And Haj Amin al-Husseini went to Hitler and said, ‘If you expel them, they’ll all come here.
“‘So what should I do with them?'” Netanyahu said Hitler asked the mufti, who responded: “Burn them.”
This of course contradicts the Jewish contention that Hitler and the Nazis planned the extermination of the Jews from the moment they took power. Does this make Netanyahu a Hitler apologist? Should he be prosecuted in Europe under Holocaust denial laws?
This comes on the heels of a recent controversy over an American Jewish professor’s contention that the Poles killed more Jews than the Germans. That is the truly amazing thing about Holocaust guilt. No matter how widely it is spread it always goes on thick and there is plenty left to paint the next enemy!

70% of welfare-to-work scheme claimants 'fail to find long-term jobs'
Press Association – Wed, Oct 21, 2015
Nearly 70% of people who complete a flagship welfare-to-work scheme fail to find sustained employment - and the programme needs to better identify claimants who need more personalised and intensive support, MPs have said.
The Commons Work and Pensions Select Committee said the scheme was "not working well" for people with complex problems who need more intensive help.
The MPs recommended a series of changes to the "complicated and less than effective" payments model when the current contracts to deliver the Work Programme and the specialist disability employment scheme Work Choice expire in April 2017.
The committee acknowledged that the Department for Work and Pensions' (DWP) payment-by-results programme was "at least as good" as its predecessors, at a much lower cost to the taxpayer.
But the MPs added that "too many long-term unemployed people remain out of work after two years on the programme".
Committee chairman Frank Field said: "DWP deserves credit for implementing a programme which, in general, produces results at least as good as before, for a greatly reduced cost per participant.
"But we must not forget that nearly 70% of participants are completing the Work Programme without finding sustained employment. We must do much better.

Iceland jails 26 bankers for a combined 74 years in prison
In a move that would make many capitalists’ head explode if it ever happened here, Iceland just sentenced their 26th banker to prison for their part in the 2008 financial collapse.
In two separate Icelandic Supreme Court and Reykjavik District Court rulings, five top bankers from Landsbankinn and Kaupping — the two largest banks in the country — were found guilty of market manipulation, embezzlement, and breach of fiduciary duties.
Most of those convicted have been sentenced to prison for two to five years.
The maximum penalty for financial crimes in Iceland is six years, although their Supreme Court is currently hearing arguments to consider expanding sentences beyond the six year maximum.

British support for EU membership tumbles as migration crisis bites -poll
Reuters UK Focus Oct 22, 2015 By Guy Faulconbridge
LONDON, Oct (HKSE: 3366-OL.HK - news) 22 (Reuters) - British support for staying in the European Union has tumbled over the past four months as an influx of migrants into Europe has pushed many voters towards opting for an exit, the Ipsos MORI pollster said on Thursday.
Prime Minister David Cameron is seeking to renegotiate relations with the bloc it joined in 1973 ahead of a referendum on membership by the end of 2017.
In one of the starkest illustrations to date of how the migrant crisis may be polarising British views of Europe, an Ipsos MORI poll showed 52 percent of Britons would vote to stay in the EU, down from a record 61 percent in June.

Resistant Starch: What Is It and What Does It Have to Do with Your Gut?
Catherine Frompovich October 20, 2015
As the sciences involving food, nutrition and eating—yes, eating, which everyone obviously doesn’t consider a science—evolve, we begin to learn more and more about how food is the third most important element to life and living for all humans.
The first most important element is air and the gases it contains, especially oxygen. Second, is water, which should be pure and contamination-free. And the third is food from plant and animal sources that are vibrant, healthy and nutrient-rich.
Unfortunately, in today’s forced chemical lifestyles, all three most important elements are contaminated with all sorts of toxins, especially those that are deliberately placed into the air (industrial pollution and chemtrails from weather geoengineering), water (industrial pollutants, fluoride and water-processing chemicals), and food, which is contaminated from more sources and corporate interests than consumers can imagine.
Food in 2015 does not contain a very healthful nor nutritious profile due to contaminants from genetic modification (GMO) and resultant seeds; herbicides (glyphosate, et al), fertilizers, fungicides, and chemtrails heavy metals (e.g., aluminum, barium, strontium, etc.); pre-harvesting sprays,(e.g., Roundup® used as a pre-harvest staging chemical [1]); fracking waste-water infused with toxic chemicals that is used to water field crops [2]; crop silo storage fumigants [3]; food processing chemicals such as additives, preservatives, artificial colors, ‘free’ MSG [16], etc.; food packaging chemicals [4]; foreign food import chemicals and fumigants [5]; and food irradiation [6].
Unless consumers are eating certified organically-grown crop foods and sustainably-grown animal foods, they are ingesting untold quantities of unknown toxic chemicals and pollutants served up as food! Back in 2012, the Environmental Working Group estimated that the average American ate 193 pounds of GMO food—yikes! [7]
Regarding food chemicals, who knows how much an average American eats. The best I can offer is to cite some stats for chemicals sold, which ought to give readers a fair idea of what’s going on—even that’s vague. The U.S. chemical industry produces 15 percent of global chemical shipments, and is the world leader in production and exports [8]. According to Select USA,
- Agricultural Chemicals: These play a crucial role in the farm economy and the food processing sector. Thanks to modern agriculture, farmers have doubled the production of world food supplies since 1960, tripled the output of foods like cooking oils and meats, and increased per capita food supplies in the developing world by 25 percent. [8]
- I would guestimate that farmers’ utilization—especially “Big Ag”—of all agricultural chemicals increased proportionately to ‘enable’ such increased agricultural outputs—but were they nutritious!
- Since we really don’t know what chemicals have been used on the food we buy and eat, learning to read food labels [9] can be one very helpful step in eliminating many processed food chemicals, but better still, refusing to purchase processed foods, which automatically contain GMOs, is another positive trend. However, the best food-buying practice is to purchase organically-grown foods: fresh, frozen, canned, and packaged/processed organic, certified non-GMO [13] foods.
So, what does all of the above have to do with “resistant starch”?

Noun: 1. The act of making an unfounded or unsubstantiated claim.
2. In philosophy, a method of debate or discussion based of the premise of: I think, therefore I am. I think you're wrong. therefore you are.
3. The act of disagreeing by employing rancor, name calling, ad hominem attacks or straw man argument.

Etymology: Fetzering began in earnest in the late 1960's, being implemented by a JFK conspiracy theorist and has since expanded it's use in the 9/11 debate arena.

1. Without evidence your claim is simple fetzering.


2. He should rely on his data instead of fetzering.

Re: Fetzering.
There are a number of 'respectable' disciplines other than debate that are based on premise. The physicists' claim that time is more than the here and now to the point no-one asks for proof nowadays, cults such as those based on 'co2 drives the climate', religions claim a god or gods, some claim a soul, and so on, (all charge).
Evidence is proof, surmise based on logic is all there is in its absence. Mock that then you mock all premises.
But for 9-11, there is proof. Go back through the posts, at some stage you'll come across a vid that shows the video magic of the 9-ll made for TV movie.

Btw, aren't you fetzering?

Political elite were part of paedophile ring, alleged victim Fiona Barnett claims
[Australia has the disease.]
Rachel Browne October 23, 2015
Social Affairs Reporter
A woman who alleges she was a child victim of the paedophile ring named by Liberal senator Bill Heffernan said she had repeatedly reported the abuse to authorities but no action had been taken.
Speaking outside the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, Fiona Barnett called on the authorities to investigate the alleged ring, which she believes is still operating.
Ms Barnett alleged the ring involved hundreds of perpetrators, including a political elte, such as a former governor-general and a former education minister, but she did not name them.
"Throughout my childhood I was a victim of Australia's VIP child sex trafficking ring," she said.
"The people involved in this elite paedophile ring included high-ranking politicians, police and judiciary."

Another Government Ponzi Scheme Starts to Crack – Do You Depend on It?
October 23, 2015 By Nick Giambruno
Government employees get to do a lot of things that would land an ordinary citizen in prison.
For example, it’s legal for them to threaten and commit offensive, rather than defensive, violence. They can take property from others without their consent. They spy on anyone’s email and bank accounts whenever they please. They go into trillions of dollars in debt and then stick the unborn with the bill. They counterfeit the currency. They lie with misleading statistics and use accounting wizardry no business could get away. And this just scratches the surface…
The U.S. government also gets to run a special type of Ponzi scheme.
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary a Ponzi scheme is:
[A]n investment swindle in which some early investors are paid off with money put up by later ones in order to encourage more and bigger risks.
In the private sector, people who run Ponzi schemes are rightly punished for their fraud. But when the government runs a Ponzi scheme, something very different happens.
It’s no secret that the Social Security system is effectively one giant Ponzi scheme.
Actually, I think it’s worse. That’s because the government uses force and the threat of force to coerce people into it. People don’t have the option to opt out. They either pay the tax for Social Security or someone with a gun will show up sooner or later. I imagine Bernie Madoff’s firm would have lasted a lot longer had he been able to operate this way.
This whole practice is particularly egregious for young people. They have no chance at collecting the future benefits the government has promised to them. But they’re hardly the only people that are going to be disappointed in the system, which will eventually break down.
There are simply too many people cashing out at the top and not enough people paying in… even with the government’s coercion. That’s a function of demographics, but also the economic reality in which there are fewer people with quality jobs for the government to sink its fangs into. I expect both of those trends to increase and strain the system
