Stop the priests abusing kids and getting away with it!!!!

Stop the priests abusing kids and getting away with it!!!!
by Janey Cook on Friday, October 29, 2010 at 2:00pm
Office of the Director of Public Prosections14 - 16 Merrion Street,Dublin 2,Ireland.
A Chara
In the last week the Director of Public Prosecutions has dropped four charges of child abuse against a priest in Cloyne Diocese and also has declined to press charges against John Magee, the former Bishop of Cloyne for his role in not acting correctly and ethically when complaints of child abuse by priests in his diocese were brought to his attention. Mr Magee has admitted these offences but, due to the failure of the DPP to prosecute he will now get away with them. The argument that the “feasibility of proof beyond reasonable doubt” is ringing rather hollow in the light of this admission. In not acting to prevent further foreseeable abuse Mr Magee acted irresponsibly and cold heartedly towards these innocent children and I/we are requesting that the Director of Public Prosecutions look at this case again and seriously reconsider the decision not to prosecute Mr Magee.At present, the victims of these abuses have had little or no justice and in allowing Mr Magee to get away with his crimes the State is sending out a message to all paedophile Roman Catholic clergy in the Republic of Ireland that they are safe from any legal consequences of their actions. I/we are putting trust in the DPP to do the right thing in this instance. Mise le m

"So long, farewell...
The Cadder case (and a few other things) may see the Lord Advocate pushed after she has jumped.
angilioni upset!!!
Lord Advocate Elish Angiolini has begun her long goodbye, and will exit stage left on election day 2011. Or possibly earlier, as we’ll explain. Angiolini long planned a graceful exit for that day when she... would ultimately “demit office” (her phrase) although it is worth appraising Andrew Adonis’s advice to Tony Blair, who also pencilled in a long distant departure date in an effort to ensure his procession into retirement was orderly and dignified.
“There are no ‘dignified exits’ and ‘orderly transitions’ – just exits and transitions, all more or less ragged and unsatisfactory,” Adonis wrote to Blair.
“The more successful prime ministers all left Number Ten with the least ‘dignified’ and most ‘disorderly’ transitions: Gladstone, Lloyd George, Churchill, Macmillan and Thatcher all possessed a will to power for a purpose until the very end … By contrast, the three long-serving prime ministers to execute ‘dignified’ and ‘orderly’ transitions are Wilson, Baldwin and Salisbury – all drained of energy and purpose, their reputations and uniformly disastrous legacies not enhanced by the warm retirement tributes.”

The timing of Angiolini’s announcement, buried three quarters of the way down a lengthy address to the annual Sexual Offences conference gives a clue to the level of choreography and strategy. (The Firm, incidentally, endeavoured to cover the work of the sexual offences unit, run principally by Angiolini’s protégé Dorothy Bain, recipient of the Editor’s Choice Awards at the 2009 Law Awards of Scotland, some time ago to showcase this pinnacle achievement which Angiolini clearly intends to associate herself with and label as her legacy project. That approach was refused.)

She is no doubt keenly aware that the Cadder decision is imminent. A series of reports from the Supreme Court suggest that not only will the decision dump on Scots arrest procedure from a great height, but Angiolini’s performance in arguing the case was reportedly somewhat below par. (we were told, by a series of eminent Qcs, she was kicked up and down the Court). Worse, certain comments made by her during her address to the court -we are informed from separate sources present- if reflected in the judgement, may make her status in post until 2011, whisper it…untenable.
inno voices
The Firm is a great admirer of aspects of Angiolini; her character, intellect, fighting spirit and style. She was bold as Peggy Mitchell in taking on the Judiciary after the World’s End debacle, and her stock was still high enough to brass that one out. But the hits have just kept on coming. In July this year she took the Drum magazine to the Press Complaints Commission and lost after it published an article about the Crown Office’s refusal to answer an FOI request, to find out whether she or the taxpayer paid her legal fees when she instructed Levy and McRae to act on her behalf against the media in the Hollie Greig matter. Levy and Macrae’s own connections within the press were exposed during the Steven Purcell affair, forcing the Herald to publicly reappraise its relationship with that firm. Justice Minister Kenny MacAskill’s former professional association with Levy and Macrae’s Peter Watson is an interesting sidebar to this story. Insular, incestuous Scotland at its worst.

Shortly afterwards she issued emergency guidelines in an apparent attempt to rewrite detention and arrest procedure, to make it compatible with EU law ahead of the anticipated Cadder result. Except she didn’t tell the Law Society, and the guidelines breached the Code of Conduct leading to strike action and “total chaos” across Scotland. The Law Society, in a rare fit of pique, issued a press release lamenting the lack of consultation.

We can’t say much about the Hollie Greig affair at this stage because there are criminal proceedings active that will be held during November, but she was appointed to her post running the prosecution service in Aberdeen during a relevant period. Given the range of her responsibilities whilst in the role, it is possible that she may be in a position to provide information that will be of interest to the current criminal case.
Taken together, the camel’s back looks very strained indeed, and that dignified dance offstage looks like a long haul indeed. Her predecessor Colin Boyd, tarred with the stains of Chokhar and Lockerbie chose to vanish into consultative oblivion at Dundas and Wilson. Any breaking news between now and May next year that might have otherwise led to the uttering of the dread word, untenable, might be somewhat neutered by the fact that her resignation has come already, but much may yet happen that renders that dignified and orderly demission rather more ragged and unsatisfactory than she hoped.

Kevin Annett and The United Church of Canada
Dear United Church of Canada,

Please note that it has not escaped my attention that you access my blog every time I write about Kevin Annett. You should also know that I have made him aware of this fact.

So, since I fully expect you to show up like a bad penny when I post this, I would like to take this opportunity to have a chat with you.

Don't you think it's time that you put your big boy pants on and behaved like mature adults instead of recalcitrant children having a temper tantrum and refusing to take responsibility for your rather shameless history and despicable treatment of Kevin Annett?

What would your Christ have to say about your treatment of the aboriginal children in the Residential Schools in Canada?
"Whatever you have done unto the least you have done to me!"
What would your Christ have to say about your treatment of Kevin Annett over the past 30 or so years?
"First, take the log out of your own eye, then you will see clearly to take the little speck out of someone else's eye."
What would your Christ say about Kevin Annett?

A man who has done nothing more than take your Christ's words to heart and try to give those children a voice. The children who are now adult survivors of your abuse and those who died brutally at your hands.
"It's better for someone to have a heavy stone tied around his neck and thrown into the sea than for that person to offend one of these little children."
We all know the truth of what happened in those Residential Schools and we all know that those adult survivors of abuse at your hands are telling the truth. So I'm not going to quibble with you or anyone else over the facts nor am I interested in hearing any rationalizations or spin on those facts.

1. Aboriginal Canadian children were kidnapped from their homes.
2. Aboriginal Canadian parents were forced to give up their children, often at gunpoint or through other threats.
3. Aboriginal Canadian children were forced to attend Church-run Residential Schools, both Protestant and Catholic.
4. In all of these Residential Schools, including those run by the United Church, children were routinely:
a. brutally physically abused amounting to torture
b. sexually abused both by staff and by being handed over to pedophile rings
c. prohibited from speaking their own languages
d. prohibited from practicing their cultures
e. murdered
f. had proper medical care withheld
g. were likely subjected to involuntary human experimentation
amongst other things.

I think that your refusal to:

1. publicly acknowledge your history by acknowledging that the victims story are true
2. compensate the victims as an act of atonement so that they can forgive you

Is a crime, never mind a sin against your God.
"Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled."
And your life long malicious persecution of Kevin Annett can be best described as the despicable act of cowards.
"A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control."
How can you expect forgiveness and reconciliation without atonement?

1. end the persecution, abuse and smear campaign against Kevin Annett
2. atone for your abuse of Kevin by compensating him

And please:
1. publicly acknowledge the truth of the stories as related by the adult survivors of Residential School abuse including the ones about the children murdered
2. atone for your abuse of these children by compensating them
3. give the murdered children justice by acknowledging the burial sites and supporting any investigation into the burial sites
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives."
These acts can open the door to truth and reconciliation.
"Physician, heal thyself"
Assuming that's what you really want and not just a means to sweep the whole mess under the carpet.
"Do unto others as you would have others do unto you."
Dear United Church of Canada, this post was written by an ethical atheist who apparently has far higher moral standards than you do. One who would never join any religion for any reason, particularly given the sheer hypocrisy and despicable behavior of many (not all) religions followers and organized religious structures like yours.

It's churches like yours and followers like you who turn more people away from your God and your Christ than any mythological Satan or Anti-Christ, although that's a convenient excuse.

Please feel free to continue to visit my blog when I write about Kevin's activities, your malicious persecution of him, and the despicable history of your church. You might learn something.

" Dear friends,

One of the original lies about me generated by RCMP's "E" Division Const. Peter Montague in the fall of 1998, in conjunction with the United Church and their native accomplices, was that I was "using" residential school survivors and publicizing their stories without their permission. These lies continue to circulate on the internet.

One example of this was the claim by Mac Stainsby (an associate of suspected government agent Jim Craven) that I had "abused" Harriett Nahanee.

The attached letters counter these lies in letters of support for me by Harriett Nahanee, Irene Starr, and Bill Quinn, all of whom were alleged by Craven and Stainsby to have spoken out against me and my work. As you can see, this is not the case.

The letters also provide some explanation as to the origin of this smear campaign, so please post them and use them whenever lies and slanders of this kind are made against me in public. These letters are covered by Common Cause Copyright and may therefore be reproduced, quoted and posted in any medium with my permission, and that of their authors.

Many thanks.

Founded June 15, 2010

An Open Letter and Appeal to world governments

and citizens

Mass murder in Canada has gone unpunished and unresolved: Help us bring the guilty to justice!

October 12, 2010

Dear friends,

On September 29, Judge Murray Sinclair stated to a Canadian Senate Committee on Aboriginal Peoples:

Thousands of children died in the schools and their families were not informed of the deaths or the burial sites.

Sinclair was referring to the Indian residential schools, established and run by the government of Canada and the Roman Catholic, Anglican and United Church from 1890 to 1996.

Not a single person has ever been arrested or tried for the deaths of these children. Instead, Canada and the churches responsible have legally indemnified themselves from prosecution for these deaths and been absolved of any wrongdoing. They have not even answered the requests of relatives of the slain to repatriate their bodies for a proper burial.

The courts and police of Canada have also refused to indict these bodies for murder, or investigate the deaths of the more than 50,000 children who never returned from these “schools”. And countless native people continue to die from the effects of the residential school terror.

We cannot find justice for the living and the dead within Canada’s borders. The Canadian government-appointed “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” into residential schools has no power to subpoena, prosecute or lay criminal charges against the guilty, and it censors witnesses from naming names or speaking of killings.

Because of this miscarriage of justice, we must turn to other governments, their informed citizenry and human rights courts for an answer.

We ask you to endorse a newly-formed International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS), which includes our organization and eight others from Ireland, Thailand, the United States, Australia and England. The ITCCS will convene its first hearing in London, England on April 4, 2011.

At this hearing, we will present to the world the evidence that Canada and the aforementioned churches planned and committed genocide and warfare against generations of native people, and continue to do so against children.

The same Tribunal has issued a Public Summons to Pope Benedict Joseph Ratzinger, and six senior Catholic Cardinals, to attend the hearing and answer charges of their complicity in these and other crimes against humanity.

On October 11, our members in eleven cities across the world protested, held vigils, and presented Catholic church officials with copies of this Summons (see attached document). More actions are being planned, and I will be returning to Europe in January to help lead this campaign.

We ask you to endorse the ITCCS and its hearings in April. Please contact us for more information.

We also ask you to show your moral support for the survivors and the dead by supporting a financial boycott of the Roman Catholic, Anglican and United Church of Canada, and their affiliates.

Do not let the cries of the dead go unheard – or the hopes of the living.

so shameful........
Angelina Julie's advises UN to Compell Pakistan Govt to cut down its luxuries before asking world for aid.

The philanthropist, soft-hearted world's number one female actress, Angelina Julie is not at all happy with her visit to Pakistan to see the flood victims. She came here, held the hands of the victims, made donations, stood up with the miseries of the people, denied any photo sessions, met with the aid agencies, but then she talks about the darker side of the things.

She is not happy with the attitude of the authorities and the government, who were more interested in toeing her line, watching her make movements, trying to please her while pushing the flood victims. She was also perturbed at the Prime Minister's wish that his family wanted to meet him. Prime Minster's family was especially flown down all the way from Multan to Islamabad and they presented expensive gifts to Jolie and had a sumptuous meal with her.

She said that she was feeling awful at that time to see so much food at the table, suffice for hundreds of flood victims who were fighting like crazy to get a small bag of flour and a small bottle of water. She was ill at ease when she saw the interior of lavish Premier house and some of the government buildings and the chartered planes and other such luxuries, when there was so much misery outside.

In her report to the United Nations, she has recommended UN to ask Pakistani government to first cut down on their expenses and to first cut down their luxuries before asking the aid from the world.

How true she is.

Fox News editorial: WikiLeaks employees should be declared ‘enemy combatants’

By Stephen C. Webster
Monday, October 25th, 2010 -- 9:43 pm

Leading the attack on whistleblower web site WikiLeaks, Fox News editorialist and former Bush-era US State Department official Christian Whiton said on Monday that the US should classify the proprietors of WikiLeaks as "enemy combatants," opening up the possibility of "non-judicial actions" against them.

"So far, the Obama administration appears to have been asleep at the wheel in responding to this," he wrote for FoxNews.com on Monday. "The same is true of the Democratic-controlled Congress, which has no fewer than ten committees of jurisdiction that could be doing something about this—but which are not."

He proposed a number of actions the US could take to shut down the secret-spilling site for good:

1. Indict Mr. Assange and his colleagues for espionage, regardless of whether he is presently in a U.S. jurisdiction, and ask our allies to do the same.

2. Explore opportunities for the president to designate WikiLeaks and its officers as enemy combatants, paving the way for non-judicial actions against them.

Story continues below...

3. Freeze the assets of the WikiLeaks organization and its supporters, and sanction financial organizations working with this terrorist-enabling organization so they cannot clear transactions denominated in U.S. dollars.

4. Give the new U.S. Cyber-Command a chance to prove its worth by ordering it to electronically assault WikiLeaks and any telecommunications company offering its services to this organization.

5. Holding meaningful congressional hearings to look into how this much classified information could ever be compromised and how the U.S. can better identify and combat political warfare organizations like WikiLeaks.
The writer's other recent hits: recommending that Republicans in Congress withhold money from health care recipients, calling for a US-sponsored coup in North Korea and praising Bill O'Reilly's crusade against National Public Radio.

In attacking WikiLeaks, Whiton seems to be following a thread laid by Marc Thiessen, a former Bush speechwriter, who asserted in a Post op-ed just after the Afghan war files publication that the site should be held in violation of the US espionage act and taken down using "military assets" -- even if that means breaking international and domestic laws to kidnap founder Julian Assange from within the European Union.

Time Magazine was quick to fire back at calls for military or other "non-judicial" actions against WikiLeaks:

To be clear, Assange's crime [...] is intentionally receiving and republishing classified information, something that is done with some regularity in the United States by respectable and responsible reporters working for top flight news organizations. To adopt Thiessen's view, one would effectively have to reject the Supreme Court's opinion in New York Times Co. v. United States, the so-called Pentagon Papers case from 1971.

Concurring in that case, Justice Potter Stewart observed, "In the absence of governmental checks and balances present in other areas of our national life, the only effective restraint upon executive policy and power in the area of national defense and international affairs may lie in an enlightened citizenry -- in an informed and critical public opinion which alone can here protect the values of democratic government.. . . . Without an informed and free press, there cannot be an enlightened people."
The massive cache of Iraq war documents published last week by WikiLeaks revealed that the US military knew about an additional 15,000+ civilian casualties that went unreported in the broader press.

It also showed that US officials turned a blind eye to the torture and murder of prisoners by Iraqi soldiers, and provided evidence that US forces really did find weapons of mass destruction in the desert nation, although the small caches they uncovered did not support Bush-era claims that Saddam Hussein had reconstituted their development.

Whiton made no mention of how US officials might correct these wrongs. Indeed, his whole argument seems to be predicated on insisting that by acting as a conduit for the release of restricted information, WikiLeaks must be more criminally liable than those who engaged in the cover-up of thousands of civilian deaths. He even accuses them of risking the lives of US collaborators, but offers no criticism of those who actually had people murdered.

WikiLeaks, however, took significant steps to redact the names of individuals mentioned in incident reports written by US soldiers operating in Iraq. The site did not take this step with its 70,000+ pages of Afghan war files published earlier this year.

"In this case we have taken an even more vigorous approach than we took in relation of the Afghan material, not because we believe that approach was particularly lacking [but] rather just to prevent those sort of distractions from the serious content by people who would like to try and distract from the message," founder Julian Assange said.

The Pentagon admitted that WikiLeaks did take care to obscure the identities of "300 or so" people who it said may have been put at risk by the release of its documents, but officials cautioned that information remains that could help identify those individuals.

San Diego Diocese Sex Abuse Case: Lawyers Release 10,000 Unsealed Documents
GILLIAN FLACCUS | 10/24/10 11:14 PM |
Attorney Irwin Zalkin poses for a photo in his office in San Diego, Calif., Thursday, April 8, 2010. Zalkin sued the diocese on behalf of some of the victims of now defrocked priest Stephen Kiesle. A letter obtained by the Associated Press and bearing the signature of the future pope shows then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger resisted defrocking Kiesle who had a record of sexually molesting children after his case had languished four years at the Vatican. The 1985 letter was typed in Latin and is part Get Religion Alerts

SAN DIEGO — Attorneys for nearly 150 people who claim sexual abuse by Roman Catholic priests made nearly 10,000 pages of previously sealed internal church documents public Sunday, revealing at least one previously unknown decades-old case in which a priest under police investigation was allowed to leave the U.S. after the Diocese of San Diego intervened.

After a three-year legal battle over the Diocese of San Diego's internal records, a retired San Diego Superior Court judge ruled late Friday that they could be made public. The records are from the personnel files of 48 priests who were either credibly accused or convicted of sexual abuse or were named in a civil lawsuit.

The 144 plaintiffs settled with the diocese in 2007 for nearly $200 million, but the agreement stipulated that an independent judge would review the priests' sealed personnel records and determine what could be made public.

The files show what the diocese knew about abusive priests, starting decades before any allegations became public, and that some church leaders shuffled priests from parish to parish or overseas despite credible complaints against them.

"We encourage all Catholics, all members of the community, to look for these documents," attorney Anthony DeMarco said at a news conference. "These documents demonstrate years and years and decades of concerted action that has allowed this community's children to be victimized, and it is not until the community looks at these documents that this cycle is ever going to be ended."

At least one of the priests, Gustavo Benson, is still in active ministry in the Diocese of Ensenada in Mexico, DeMarco said. In a 2002 interview with The Press-Enterprise of Riverside, Benson said he ministered to children there but had not done anything inappropriate. It wasn't immediately known what Benson's position at the diocese is now.

A phone message left Sunday night at the office of the Archbishop of Tijuana who oversees the Ensenada diocese was not immediately returned.

In at least one instance, the files included documented abuse by a priest whose name had not before surfaced in any lawsuit or criminal case, the Rev. Luis Eugene de Francisco, who was originally from Colombia. Police investigated de Francisco for allegedly abusing children, but the diocese convinced authorities to drop the case if the priest would return immediately to his Colombian diocese and never return to the U.S.

"In early August 1963, Father was placed under arrest by the civil police of the City of San Diego for violation of the State Penal Code," then-Bishop Charles F. Buddy wrote the Colombian bishop in the Diocese of Cali. "At that time, arrangements were made between this Chancery and the civil authorities of San Diego in which, if Father left the United States with the promise never to return, the charges against Father would be set aside by Civil Law."

Story continues below
Buddy wrote that de Francisco had crossed the border at Tijuana, Mexico, and was "directed to return directly to the Diocese of Cali."

DeMarco said the papers in the files were the first time attorneys became aware of de Francisco. No one filed a lawsuit, the church never revealed the complaints and it's unclear what happened to the priest or if he is still alive, he said.

Church files indicate he also served in Florida and Texas before arriving in the San Diego diocese, where he worked with migrant workers in the Coachella Valley about 150 miles southeast of Los Angeles.

"You have won a reputation as a zealous worker and devoted to the poor," Bishop Buddy wrote the priest in a December 1962 letter.

"On the other hand, the 'incidents' at Indio were more serious than first presented to me, especially inasmuch as the police have made a record of them. You know how word gets around, so that you be certain that the police here will be on your trail. ... It will be more prudent and more secure for you to return to your own diocese."

Donna Daly, a spokeswoman for the Diocese of San Diego, did not immediately return a call on Sunday and no one answered at the main diocese number. Maria Roberts, an attorney for the diocese, did not immediately respond to a message left with her office on Sunday.

Another case outlined in the files involves the Rev. Robert Nikliborc, who was sent to a psychiatric treatment facility in the 1950s after the diocese received complaints, then became director of a Roman Catholic residential facility for troubled boys called Boystown of the Desert in Banning, Calif.

Boys who lived there filed lawsuits against Nikliborc and were part of the 2007 settlement, DeMarco said. The priest died while litigation was under way.

In a 1956 letter written to Nikliborc while he was at a "special retreat," Buddy referred to two incidents involving the priest without describing them, and said Nikliborc must decide whether to stand with God or against him.

"The fact is that your defects on both occasions were reported by lay people, who gave absolute proof which you could not gloss over or deny," Buddy wrote. Still, he held out the possibility that Nikliborc could again celebrate Mass.

The papers also contain documents from the files of Rev. Anthony Rodrigue. In 1976, a group of parents at Rodrigue's parish in Heber, Calif., complained he had molested their children, according to court documents.

The priest was sent to a psychiatric facility in Massachusetts for treatment but was put back in ministry despite the recommendations of those who treated him.

Rodrigue later admitted he had molested between four to five children a year over a span of 22 years, said Irwin Zalkin, an attorney for the plaintiffs. About 30 people filed lawsuits against the diocese alleging sexual abuse against the priest, who died within the last year, he said.

"He was probably one of the most prolific abusers in this diocese. ... And they knew about this guy from his days in the seminary but kept him in ministry," Zalkin said.

Attorneys are still trying for the release of an additional 2,000 pages of documents.

The release of records is biggest so far in a U.S. church case, said Terry McKiernan, founder of the website Bishop Accountability.org. The website collects and publishes internal church papers that have been released as the result of litigation on clergy abuse nationwide.

"I think as we absorb this, it will shed a lot of light on these issues. It's amazingly rich," McKiernan said. "These documents are providing a window into the California experience that we haven't had before."

Lawyers for plaintiffs have been trying to get similar internal church documents from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles for years, but have not had success. That diocese settled with more than 500 plaintiffs in 2007 for a record-breaking $660 million in a settlement agreement that also called for the disclosure of priests' files.

The only other release of church files in California came after a 2005 settlement between plaintiffs and the Diocese of Orange. About 4,000 pages were made public.

Canada given deadline by International Tribunal to repatriate the dead, prosecute the guilty

Ottawa, Canada - A newly formed International Tribunal has informed the government of Canada that, in partnership with aboriginal people, it will commence forensic excavations at twenty eight mass grave sites near former Indian residential schools across Canada after March 1, 2011, if Canada continues to refuse to prosecute those responsible for the deaths of thousands of children in these schools.

In a letter to Prime Minister Steven Harper today, the Acting Secretary of the six-nation International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State, (ITCCS) Reverend Kevin Annett, gave Canada and its churches four months to begin repatriating the remains of children who died in these schools, and bring to trial those responsible for their deaths.

Rev. Annett stated that his group had been approached and invited to conduct such an inquiry by "very many" aboriginal survivors of Indian Residential schools across Canada.

“After March 1, 2011, our Tribunal will intervene and conduct any inquiry and forensic study which Canada refuses to do, at the invitation of survivors of Indian residential schools” stated Rev. Annett.

“The evidence is there, that many thousands of children died in residential schools. The continued refusal by Canada and its courts to prosecute those responsible is a clear obstruction of justice, and makes Canada an accessory to a crime against humanity.”

On September 29, Judge Murray Sinclair of Canada’s “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” stated publicly that “Thousands of children died in the schools, and their parents were never informed of how they died or where they were buried.”

The ITCCS will be issuing a Public Summons to Prime Minister Harper and other church and state officials to appear before a London Tribunal during the week of April 4-8, 2011, to answer charges of crimes against humanity.

The ITCCS has already issued such a Summons to Pope Benedict, Joseph Ratzinger, and six senior Cardinals at the Vatican. The ITCCS consists of member groups from Canada, the USA, Ireland, Australia, England and Thailand.

A copy of the ITCCS letter to Prime Minister Harper is attached.

The International Tribunal into Crimes

of Church and State
Established June 15, 2010

October 25, 2010

Prime Minister Steven Harper
Government of Canada

Dear Mr. Harper,

I am writing to you in my capacity as the Acting Secretary of The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS) to inform you that as of March 1, 2011, our organization will commence an independent investigation, including forensic excavations, at suspected mass grave sites near former Indian Residential Schools across Canada, if your government continues to refuse to investigate these sites and prosecute those responsible for the deaths of children in these schools.

The statement from your Office in February, 2008 which declared that, although criminal acts occurred in these schools, no criminal charges would be laid, indicates a clear policy by your government to officially exonerate the churches and persons responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of children.

Such a policy makes you and your government accessories to a crime under international law, and a pariah body in the Community of Nations.

At the request of survivors of Indian residential schools, our Tribunal will commence our own Inquiry into these deaths as of March 1, 2011, if your government has not done the following:

Publicly disclose all the evidence held by you and the Catholic, Anglican and United Church of Canada regarding the deaths of children in Indian residential schools, and the location of their buried remains.

2. Begin a public and unconditional process of repatriation of
those remains to their families for a proper burial.

Commence criminal legal proceedings against the persons and institutions responsible for these deaths.

A copy of this letter has been issued to the world media and major governments.

I hope to receive a reply from you no later than November 15, 2010.

John Hankey - 9/11 and JFK connection
Submitted by jonathan mark on Sun, 10/24/2010 - 2:04pm
Coup D'Etat
Military Industrial Complex
shadow government

The following is from John Hankey, who will be joining us at the 9/11 Truth Leader Teleconference this Wednesday. I will be showing his film, Dark Legacy: George Bush and the Murder of John Kennedy, this November 22nd in my community. I highly recommend showing this film with a discussion related to 9/11 with some of these points.

Both JFK and 9-11 involved The Big Lie -

1: The crime is unspeakable, for the mainstream media and ALL politicians who want to live. Our job is to speak the unspeakable. the Big Lie -

2: Even when spoken by the likes of us, the crime is too terrible to be believed. The average human being is incapable of conceiving that anyone could be so horrible, that they could kill their own people, or their own president. This is the main defense of 9-11 perpetrators. The true conspiracy theory is unbelievable. However, JFK's murder is a chink in this armor of people's incredulity: 80% believe Warren Report is a lie. They know there is more out there than what they have been told.

The video, Dark Legacy, has the potential to teach the common citizen valuable lessons regarding 9-11

1) Both crimes were committed by the same perpetrators: the military industrial complex; the CFR; with Bushes heading the attack. JFK was murdered in order to carry out Vietnam; but the only discernible goal there was to increase the defense budget: they knew they couldn't win. All the best evidence said so. They didn't care about winning. Just about keeping money from going for education and medicare.

2) In both crimes, the media and politicians are worse than useless; these crimes are unspeakable. The truth must be denied emphatically whenever the topic comes up; and those who raise the questions must be viciously attacked by every politician in the spotlight.

3) Don't get lost in details; The names of the knoll shooters doesn't matter. It doesn't matter whether Oswald or a double went to Mexico. Was there a plane, or not, at Pentagon? It doesn't matter. What matters is that, with all the cold-war defenses in place, not a shot was fired in defense. "We don't know" is a good answer to all detailed questions. The broad outlines are clear.

4) It seems, based on the JFK experience, that demanding a new investigation is something of a loser. The crime remains unspeakable, though there has been a lot of good evidence accumulated by the investigation and examination of witnesses. But we shouldn't kid ourselves that a new investigation will result in a report that tells anything remotely resembling the truth. Our role as truth tellers will continue to be critical, no matter a new investigation.

Dark Legacy
George Bush and the Murder of John Kennedy

Provocative to say the least. Using materials familiar to researchers,
Dark Legacy makes a series of tantalizing connections between the rich
and powerful to suggest that Kennedy was brought down by a vast web of
powerful conservatives and that George H.W.Bush was close to all of them.
Hankey invites viewers not only to draw their own conclusions but also
to check out his sources." -- Kevin Thomas Los Angeles Times

The disclosure was included in almost 400,000 US military files leaked by Wikileaks to The Guardian, New York Times, Der Spiegel and Al-Jazeera.

It reveals that Frago 242 - an abbreviated order - instructed troops not to investigate any breach of the laws of armed conflict, such as the abuse of detainees, unless it directly involves members of the coalition.

Included in the documents are several incidents where allegations of torture were made but no investigation took place.

The files describe Iraqis torturing Iraqi detainees, sometimes using electric drills.

The documents also show that 109,000 Iraqis were killed from 2003 to 2009 – 60,000 of those were civilians.

More than 15,000 deaths had previously gone unrecorded.

The files also detail how US Apache helicopters killed insurgents who were trying to surrender.

An American military legal adviser told helicopter crew that Iraqi men were valid targets as they could not surrender to aircraft, the logs disclose.

The Pentagon earlier warned Iraqis who have co-operated with the United State military that their lives may be endangered by the release by the WikiLeaks website of secret documents.

Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State, said: "I do have a strong opinion that we should condemn in the most clear terms the disclosure of any classified information by individuals and or organizations which puts the lives of United States and partner servicemembers and civilians at risk."




Current mood: awake

Friday, 22 October 2010 09:10

...The high profile case of Cheryl Stannard , involving the dreadful treatment of her daughter by the Isle of Wight Social Services, appears not to be of interest to Esther Rantzen.
So the question has to be asked. Why?
If you read this article in the Daily Mail from December last year, you will see in action the Esther Rantzen that we all know and love - the champion of abused and vulnerable children. You cannot help but admire the dedication and energy that she has committed over many years to provide defenceless children with somewhere to go for real help and genuine compassion.
So when, at the beginning of this year, I realised that there were dreadful cases of child abuse and child stealing by the State coming to light that had to be confronted and addressed by decent, law-abiding citizens, I immediately thought that the person to head up our quest for the truth should be, without hesitation, Esther Rantzen. If anyone could challenge the establishment to get to the truth, it would be her, I thought.
In February of this year, when the dreadful case of Hollie Greig became more widely known through the articles of Brian Gerrish and his UK Column team, I took it upon myself to ring the campaign headquarters of Esther's General Election campaign to become the next MP for Luton South. I was politely listened to and my message was relayed to Esther about Hollie. After two more attempts by phone to see if it was possible to speak to Esther, I was eventually successful, but her message to me was not encouraging. She said that she had had many calls and emails from people asking her to take an interest in this case and that some of them had been abusive in tone. She said that she was fully committed to her General Election campaign but would look again at this case after polling day. The result on the day must have come as a personal shock to her– I certainly expected her to do much better ( See here... )
In April, again through the excellent work of the UK Column, I became aware of the case of Isle of Wight resident Cheryl Stannard and her ten year old daughter ( see here )
This together with research by the UK Column, Bill Maloney, David Icke and many others, it would appear that the Isle of Wight is yet another centre for the State sponsored abuse of children and families. Once again, I believed Esther Rantzen should take a high profile lead to find out the truth and now that the General Election was over, I felt confident that she would agree to get involved. Unknown to me, Cheryl had already approached her, but, as you will see from the following emails, to no avail. I took up the cudgels later on, but I too, as you will see from my emails to Esther, got nowhere.
If I'm honest, I feel terribly let down by Esther's apparent indifference to both these terrible cases especially as researchers know that this is just the tip of the iceberg. The more and more we look at how the establishment works we see clear evidence that rogue elements in the judiciary, the legal profession, the police and social services are networking to commit and allow unspeakable crimes against innocent children and are breaking up happy and loving families by organising the State-snatching of their children. Unbelieveable but the evidence says otherwise! So why doesn't Esther, a caring and loving person, with a wonderful track record, want to get involved? is she afraid of something? What does she know?
What I know is that for the first time ever, we have a national network of committed and decent people who will not stop until the truth, the real truth, is exposed.......and, hopefully, with Esther leading from the front.
Please read the emails below and see if you can understand Esther's indifference and apparent unwillingness to get involved. Please note that because of Cheryls ongoing battle in the Courts to get her daughter back, some content from the emails has had to be removed. In most cases, the sentences removed add to the urgency of the request for Esther’s assistance. Thank you for reading this – updates will be given as events unfold.

Thank you so much for your call on Sunday, as it did lift my spirits. [My daughter] has phoned on Childline. She has tried to use the message board on the website but is having difficulties with it not allowing her. I have emailed Superintendent Mellors yesterday and asked him to chase DCI Dawson - professional investigations team for me, as I have left messages and do not have her email or phone number. I want to find out why [my daughter] was left to the mercy of a family court judge in 2007 when the police and social services told me that they believed her and to stop contact. . They were aware of previous judgements and said this was a separate allegation and would be treating it seriously. However, a couple of days later both SS and Police abandoned us. [My daughter] has the right to have her voice heard in the appropriate court as she alleges crimes have been committed against her........... .......................................................... [My daughter] has written her own statement which the police have along with my letter below.....................................................

Sorry to bother you again but I am so worried for us. Social Services .........has set the case conference meeting up again for next Monday am and I am also due back at Portsmouth County Court on Monday afternoon and still without representation. I have asked the Child Law Partnership to help and am waiting to hear back but not hopeful. Judge advised I was having difficulty because it was a national problem where solicitors are poorly paid and this was a complex case. I have emailed ...............the Child Abuse Investigations Unit in Netley asking for his promised feedback of couple of weeks ago. No response as yet. I sent medical data showing my daughter has had .........................................[medical] conditions from 2002 - sept/oct 2009. The only period without these conditions was when contact ceased/supervised. [My daughter] has had no further conditions since contact stopped in Nov/Dec 09.

Dear Esther,
This is not easy for me to write but please bare with me. I am going to be honest with you and say how I feel about how things have turned out for Cheryl Stannard and her daughter. Not only have they been forcibly separated by a highly questionable court action in Gibraltar but Cheryl has now also been charged by the Hampshire police with abducting her own daughter. [Her daughter] is desperate to get back to her loving mother and quite definitely does not want to be with ........................ What is going on here? Cheryl and [her daughter] are clearly the victims, with [her daughter] especially so after her dreadful experiences with paedophiles.
Now it goes without saying that you have a tremendous reputation for helping abused children and your Childline initiative has been universally applauded. But I have to say that I'm very disappointed by these emails below sent to me by Cheryl which seem to show a consistent failure on your part to meet with Cheryl and [her daughter] and to explore the possibility of offering them both practical support and much needed help in their hour of need. How else am I to interpret them?
This poor mother is desperate for your advice and support and yet it would appear that you have turned your back on her. I'm sorry, but that's how it looks to me after reading them - if I'm wrong please put me right. And please remember that both Brian Gerrish and myself have been in touch with you about this case and neither of us received back any indication that you were prepared to get involved. The evidence would appear to be overwhelming that [Cheryl’s daughter] is the victim of a dreadful injustice by the establishment on the Isle of Wight and this awful case demands to be heard in an open court of law in front of a jury of honest and decent people.
Instead, Cheryl faces the trumped up charge of abducting her own daughter, whilst the future of her daughter is decided upon in a private Family Court session where secrecy is prevalent. This is clearly outrageous and must be tackled head on. As with the dreadful Hollie Greig case (which, again, I'm afraid to say, our pleas for your involvement came to nought), it is clear that organised paedophilia within the higher echelons of our society is not only prevalent but is in a position where it can actually pervert the very course of justice.
This is clearly a dreadful state of affairs and this evil must be exposed without delay, with the perpetrators brought to justice under Common Law. The situation is so bad that one informed researcher into child abuse even has his suspicions that Childline itself is actually being used by rogue elements from within to identify vulnerable children so that paedophiles will know where to prey. I really hope that he is completely wrong here....please allay my fears that there is absolutely no truth to this possibility.
Even though I feel very disappointed by your lack of action so far towards Cheryl and [her daughter], I am still hopeful that you will now meet with Cheryl and her team of advisors in the immediate future. I look forward very much to hearing from you,
With best wishes
Justin Walker

It pains me to write this but the fact that you have refused to take action or even acknowledge my numerous polite emails and telephone calls to you about Cheryl Stannard and her daughter (as well as Hollie and Anne Greig), I feel I am now compelled to take the appropriate actions to alert the general public about your apparent indifference towards these horrific cases of child abuse by trusted servants of the State. With the establishment of Childline, you have made yourself the public champion of abused and vulnerable children. How will people react when they read this series of emails? Why are you going out of your way to avoid talking to the campaign teams helping [Cheryl’s daughter] and Hollie?
Are you afraid of something? Has somebody got to you to keep your silence? And are there rogue elements within the well known children's charities using them to identify weak and vulnerable children for future abuse by paedophiles? These are very serious questions that must be asked in view of your strange and inexplicable lack of support. I know that I have direct access to half a dozen global websites which means that millions of people in a very short space of time will become aware of your lack of support for these two high profile child abuse cases. As a mark of respect, I will give you until midnight on Friday 1st October to make contact with us - failure to do so will mean that I have a public duty to make these emails public so that people can make their own minds up.
Yours sincerely
Justin Walker
In April, again through the excellent work of the UK Column, I became aware of the case of Isle of Wight resident Cheryl Stannard and her ten year old daughter See here... together with research by the UK Column, Bill Maloney, David Icke and many others, it would appear that the Isle of Wight is yet another centre for the State sponsored abuse of children and families. Once again, I believed Esther Rantzen should take a high profile lead to find out the truth and now that the General Election was over, I felt confident that she would agree to get involved. Unknown to me, Cheryl had already approached her, but, as you will see from the following emails, to no avail. I took up the cudgels later on, but I too, as you will see from my emails to Esther, got nowhere.
If I'm honest, I feel terribly let down by Esther's apparent indifference to both these terrible cases – especially as researchers know that this is just the tip of the iceberg. The more and more we look at how the establishment works, the more we see clear evidence that rogue elements within the judiciary, the legal profession, the police and the social services are networking to commit or allow unspeakable crimes against innocent children and are deliberately breaking up happy and loving families by organising the State-snatching of their children. Unbelievable, but the evidence says otherwise! So why doesn't Esther, a loving and caring person with a wonderful track record, want to get involved? Is she afraid of something? What does she know?

Pentagon: Do Not Distribute “Stolen” Files Published by Wikileaks|

Oct 18, 2010 By Mary Elizabeth Dallas

"The Pentagon today told media organizations to not distribute any “stolen” classified war files released by the WikiLeaks Web site. In July, WikiLeaks obtained and released nearly 77,000 classified military reports from Afghanistan. Now, U.S. officials say the group is in possession of as many as 400,000 documents concerning operations in Iraq.Marine Corps Col. Dave Lapan, a Pentagon spokesman, today told reporters in an off-camera briefing that the military isn't sure if WikiLeaks has shared the Iraq war logs with any news organizations. But, he said, media should not disseminate the "stolen" information even if it's already posted online by WikiLeaks, reports the AP.In a Twitter post today, WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian AssangeJulian Assange denied reports that a leak was imminent. Assange said the information was coming from "a single tabloid blog" that had distributed a "tremendous amount" of false information about his site.Still, the military says its 120-person task force has been on high alert, notes the AP. The group has been reviewing the documents for weeks to determine what information might be compromised. "The concern is that WikiLeaks as an organization should not be made more credible by having credible news organizations facilitate what they're doing," the AP Quotes Lapan as saying.The U.S. military is conducting an investigation into how Wikileaks obtained the classified documents. An Army intelligence analyst stationed in Iraq, Spc. Bradley Manning, has been arrested in connection with the release of other materials to WikiLeaks.Manning, 22, a native of Oklahoma, is charged with illegally downloading 150,000 classified diplomatic cables and a secret video of a military operation in Iraq, and passing the video and some of the documents along to an unnamed third party, according to the Army Times.Government officials suspect he is the source of a helicopter cockpit video WikiLeaks posted in April showing U.S. soldiers gunning down a group of unarmed men in Baghdad, the report notes. The group is believed to have included a Reuters news photographer and his driver."

" I am India's expert in strategic defence and the father of India's strategic program, including the Integrated Guided Missiles Development Program. I have shown in my blog titled 'Nuclear Supremacy For India Over U.S.', which can be found by a Yahoo search with the title, that all terrorism and insurgencies in the Indian subcontinent and in much of the rest of the world is sponsored by the C.I.A. Both Pakistan's ISI and India's RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) function as branches of the C.I.A. and participate in terrorism and insurgencies throughout the Subcontinent, under direction of the C.I.A. Yes, the ISI secretly supports the Taliban but it does so under direction from the C.I.A. whose modus operandi is support for ALL sides of a conflict to control the course of the conflict in service of its own goals. The goal of the U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and partial occupation of Pakistan is eventual occupation and overt colonial rule over the Subcontinent as a whole. This will not be permitted and all those participating in this enterprise, including the U.K., will be duly punished; see my blog. The document leak currently in the news has been made in preparation for abandonment of this goal and withdrawal from Afghanistan because of steps I have already taken for the nuclear destruction of New Delhi and then the coast-to-coast destruction of the United States by India with 5,000 thermonuclear warheads and extermination of its population; see my blog."



Indians want to develop own operating systemProtect themselves from hacking 11 Oct 2010 08:52 | by Nick Farrell | posted in Software .

" Spooks working for the Indian government are working on a new operating system which will protect its sensitive data from cyber attacks.

The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) said that it is developing its own futuristic operating system so that hackers cannot work their way into critical systems.

According to Sify.com , DRDO director general V.K. Saraswat told hacks that the indigenous computing project was started in September and a road map is being drawn up.

However Saraswat said that the operating system would be similar to systems used worldwide using proprietary source code and architecture. This will give the Indians the security of owning a system unknown to foreign elements and thus secure.

The new operating system will also reduce the organisation's vulnerability and susceptibility to cyber attacks from internet, he said.

The OS will be used to secure the defence systems for computing in various research areas such as molecular computing and bio-molecular computing.

A team of 50 boffins from various defence labs in Bangalore and New Delhi will work on the project. Some private companies are also involved."


Satish Chandra - 11 Oct 10:58 .

"India's nigger-slave service chiefs, ministers, etc. are constantly talking of threats from India's 'neighbors'. But the United States is EVERYBODY's neighbor. It has already invaded and occupied Afghanistan, a part of traditional India and will expand its occupation to the rest of the subcontinent.Was Britain India's neighbor? I am India's expert in strategic defence and the father of India's strategic program, including the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program. The U.S. invasion of Afghanistan means the coast-to-coast destruction of the U.S. by India; see my blog titled 'Nuclear Supremacy For India Over U.S.' which can be found by a Yahoo search with the title for steps I have already taken for the nuclear destruction of New Delhi and then the coast-to-coast destruction of the U.S. and extermination of its population.Russia and the U.S. are allies.These are the enemies to destroy. All other enemies will be taken care of automatically.Conventional arms are worthless for destroying the United Sates. Nuclear arms to destroy the United States with a FIRST STRIKE -- this is the key -- are cheap and easy to produce with technology India already has. By prepositioning a couple of nuclear bombs in Washington and New York and letting the world know we have done so will give India freedom to test thermonuclear weapons designs, ICBMs, etc., as much as it wants, though India already has this freedom but for the nigger slaves. Alternatively, twenty kiloton bombs can be prepositioned in the largest U.S. cities and then Washington and New York destroyed with the warning that additional U.S. cities will be destroyed if there is any retaliation. The nuclear destruction of New Delhi -- without waiting -- is all that is needed to make India win."

Satish Chandra - 13 Oct 03:00 .

"With reference to my post above:How shall we rub the United States out of existence? I have said (see my blog) that in designing nuclear weapons for use against the United States, radioactive materials should be identified that can be dispersed over the territory of the United States, either via separate radiological weapons (“dirty bombs”) or as part of the regular thermonuclear weapons, that will so contaminate the territory of the United States with radioactivity that nothing will grow there for at least several years that can be consumed without getting a lethal dose of radiation. This will force the Americans who survive the nuclear bomb explosions on the four thousand largest population centers to eat one another till no one remains alive. The ‘salting’ of the territory of the United States with such radioactivity can be done in a separate operation -- such as by unmanned aerial vehicles -- after its four thousand largest population centers have been destroyed by regular thermonuclear weapons. In considering candidate substances that could be used to exterminate the population of a country by ‘salting’ its territory with radioactivity, let us examine Polonium-210 which was used in the death of former Russian agent Litvinenko in Britain. It is produced in nuclear reactors by irradiating Bismuth-209, has a median lethal dose of 50 nanograms, a half-life of 138 days and is reduced to about one eighth of its original radioactivity about 18 months after production. This half-life may be too short for the purpose above but substances with longer half-lives can be found. I have shown India will win a nuclear war with the United States no matter what the united States does.The use of twenty kiloton bombs against Washington and New York is part of an alternative route to the same objective (see my blog). In my blog I have also shown the necessity for India to exterminate the intellectually and morally inferior white race.In my blog I have said that on February 11, 2009 I wrote: The failure, on January 20, 2009, of a Brahmos missile to hit its target was followed by a RAW-arranged media blizzard of reports of the failure of India’s missile programs and of DRDO. I knew that that failure, as of the recent ISRO-made European satellite, was due to sabotage -- which I have repeatedly referred to over the years -- by C.I.A.-RAW. There has been no media blizzard of reports on the discovery that the United States had switched off, during the missile’s flight, the signal to the test zone from the Global Positioning System (GPS) which the missile used for guidance, resulting in the failure. This failure of the missile was pre-arranged by C.I.A.-RAW with India’s army chief, who was present during the test, to ‘neutralise’ what I wrote on January 15, 2009 about his having been bought by the United States and his rejecting various indigenously developed weapon systems, etc. After this “General Kapoor went on to let the media know that the army might call off the Brahmos deal. The proposal for purchase of 240 of the missiles for two regiments of the army, he indicated, was to be shelved until the missile’s capability was proven” ( "Mystery of an Indian Missile Test Flop" in Truthout, an online magazine). I am aghast that India should use ANY electronic support from the U.S. -- or Russia and other countries -- particularly in the defence field, much less for a signal to guide its missiles -- even after what I have written about “National Security Crisis Due To Microwaves From Satellites” (February 26 ‘06), “Why Are American Companies Providing India’s Satellite Navigation System -- Gagan” (October 24 ‘08) and a piece on March 23 ‘08; I have been writing to the press with such warnings since 1996-97; in December 1982 I warned about such sabotage in a letter to Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. After what I wrote on December 18 ‘08 about a similar danger from Russia and referred to the plans for Russia to lease out to India several nuclear powered attack submarines, Russia cancelled those plans. But, as I have said, similar dangers exist in importing nuclear power plants and numerous other kinds of civilian and military equipment. Sabotaging and suppressing India’s research and development by C.I.A.-RAW is also an aspect of the colonial grip over India which will only be broken with the nuclear destruction of New Delhi; see my blog.

After British rule, India has been under C.I.A. rule. I have written in my blog about how Robert Crowley, former Assistant Deputy Director of Clandestine Operations of the CIA, gave documents of his own top secret operations to his friend, historian Gregory Douglas and described in detail how the C.I.A. has done “business” with Russian intelligence agencies for many decades, how the C.I.A. directly arranged the plane crash which killed Homi Bhabha but relied on Russian intelligence agencies, with which it did “business”, to assassinate Shastri who had given a go ahead for an Indian nuclear weapons program. The Russian intelligence agencies -- large parts of which were brought on the C.I.A.’s payroll -- brought down the Soviet Union. After a letter of mine in Indian Express in the early nineties which appeared under the editor's heading “Grab This Opportunity” regarding a Russian proposal to form a Russia-China-India alliance, P. V. Narasimha Rao sent the head of India’s submarine-launched ballistic missile program to Russia to get help, where he died as Shastri did. When, in a letter to the press, I pointed out that this was the “help” the Russians had provided, the Russians hastily withdrew a delegation that was visiting India. It will be the easiest thing in the world for Russian or other intelligence agencies to install devices in submarines etc. with which they can track them and, in keeping with their “business” relationship with U.S. intelligence agencies, enable the Americans to track them, too. I have said there should be an iron-clad rule against importing ANY defence equipment and I have also described the perils of importing electronic equipment, nuclear power plants and numerous other kinds of civilian and military equipment; see my blog." _______________________________________________________

There are more comment from S Chandra in places, but I an unable to get Chandras blog as mentioned but i am in contact with him and should be able to post it shortly...b.

"K. Subrahmanyam/RAW have hacked this web site and are now using my own name to post their comments and in one case have changed the name from "Satish Chandra" to "satchandra". As I have said, K. Subrahmanyam has been a kingpin of C.I.A. operations in India for decades, responsible for setting up the LTTE etc. to promote separatism first in Sri Lanka then in India; and that has been just one of his activities. His crimes and those of RAW (see my other articles on merinews and my blog) are too massive and numerous for what they are doing here to make any difference either in the overall volume of their crimes or the punishment that awaits them.

The rich get richer, and the poor get poorer...it doesnt have to be like that....
Today in Britain, because of the massive banking scam brought on by the ruling elite, the "Illuminati", 500,000 jobs - 1 in 10 - will go. The massive deficit of £155 billion - our debt - will be contributed by our government creeping back 83 billion pounds over the next 4 years via the stopping of paying potential wages which would have gone for example to many workers dealing with the vulnerable, such as the homeless, ...our government has now bankrupted the country,which was all preplanned by them, and the common people must pay with their livlihoods. Its cheaper for those to be unemployed, if indeed they can get the paltry unemployment benefit, to paying them their wages. The Rothschilds and the Rockefellers, and all the banking elite, who could easily help in this situation rather than make ordinary people suffer, will get their massive debts owed to them at the cost of livlihoods of half a million people.

Federal Agents Urged to 'Friend' People on Social Networks, Memo Reveals
Published October 14, 2010| FoxNews.com
Print Email Share Comments (137) Text Size REUTERS/Rick Wilking
Josh Mayeux, network defender, works at the Air Force Space Command Network Operations & Security Center at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colorado July 20, 2010.
A privacy watchdog has uncovered a government memo that encourages federal agents to befriend people on a variety of social networks, to take advantage of their readiness to share -- and to spy on them. In response to a Freedom of Information request, the government released a handful of documents, including a May 2008 memo detailing how social-networking sites are exploited by the Office of Fraud Detection and National Security (FDNS).
As of Thursday morning, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and Digg had not commented on the report, which details the official government program to spy via social networking. Other websites the government is spying on include Twitter, MySpace, Craigslist and Wikipedia, according to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), which filed the FOIA request.
"Narcissistic tendencies in many people fuel a need to have a large group of 'friends' link to their pages, and many of these people accept cyber-friends that they don't even know," stated one of the documents obtained by the EFF. "This provides an excellent vantage point for FDNS to observe the daily life of beneficiaries and petitioners who are suspected of fraudulent activities," it said.
According to the EFF, this memo -- which specifically details how the government evaluates potential citizen requests -- suggests there's nothing to prevent an exaggerated, harmless or even out-of-date offhand comment in a status update from quickly becoming the subject of a full investigation.
With this revelation, the government joins a growing list of groups using social-networking sites for purposes other than social networking. As these sites have gained popularity, scammers and spammers have become rampant, and hackers are increasingly turning to networks such as Facebook to spread viruses and Trojan Horses.
John Cusack Calls for 'Satanic Death' of Fox News, GOP Leaders Woman’s Body Cut in Half to Treat Aggressive Cancer Colbert Offers Comedy Shtick in Farm Workers Testimony, Fails to Amuse Lawmakers Aliens Are Monitoring Our Nukes, Worry Ex-Air Force Officers Gordon Ramsay 'Kitchen Nightmares' Chef Commits Suicide The EFF also uncovered efforts by the Department of Homeland Security to monitor social media during the inauguration of President Obama. According to the documents, the DHS collected a massive amount of data on individuals and organizations explicitly tied to the event.
The DHS notably attempted to ensure that its use of social networks was appropriate while gathering data online. The newly released documents cite the Fair Information Practices Principles, a 2008 policy memo by the Department of Homeland Security's chief privacy officer that set guidelines for ensuring online privacy during the collection of information.
Another government agency, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, denies using social networks to spy on people.
"USCIS does not permit agency personnel to attempt to 'friend' immigration petitioners and their beneficiaries on social networks in an effort to reveal fraud."
Still, the EFF worries that the DHS may be taking things too far. "While it is laudable to see DHS discussing the Fair Information Practice Principles as part of the design for such a project, the breadth of sites targeted is concerning," the watchdog group wrote on its website.
Among the networks specifically cited for analysis "were general social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and Flickr, as well as sites that focus specifically on certain demographic groups such as MiGente and BlackPlanet, news sites such as NPR, and political commentary sites DailyKos," the EFF wrote.
