Reporting from Washington—
A Marine and a Navy medic killed in the first known case of U.S friendly fire casualties from a drone strike were targeted when Marine commanders in Afghanistan mistook them for Taliban fighters, even though analysts watching the Predator's live video feed were uncertain if the men were part of an enemy force.
Those are the findings of a Pentagon investigation into the April 6 deaths of Marine Staff Sgt. Jeremy D. Smith, 26, and Navy Hospitalman Benjamin D. Rast, 23. The 381-page report concludes that the Marine officers and the Air Force crew controlling the unmanned aircraft from half a world away were unaware that analysts watching the firefight unfold via live video at a third location had doubts about the targets' identity.
The miscommunications among ground commanders, the Predator pilot and crew at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada, and Air Force analysts studying the video and data feed at an Air National Guard base in Indiana, highlight problems in the Pentagon's growing reliance on armed drone aircraft, which U.S. forces now use in combat zones around the world.
But....wait....this is not supposed to happen....right?

Norma Goldring said she felt compelled to get an H1N1 vaccine because she is diabetic and has had a heart attack, two factors that Alberta Health noted as putting people at higher risk for serious complications from swine flu.
But soon after getting the shot last winter, Goldring felt ill.
“My body was aching and I was throwing up. Then I developed a spot on my leg,” she said.
The rash spread quickly and Goldring ended up in hospital on Christmas Day. “By the time I got to emergency, it spread pretty bad and turned to blisters.”
Her kidneys were shutting down. Doctors eventually diagnosed it as vasculitis, an inflammation that destroys blood vessels.
Her doctor, who asked not to be named, concluded it was probably connected to the H1N1 shot. Goldring, according to her doctor, is one of only 31 people since 1974 to have had this type of reaction to a flu shot.
Won’t get shot again, says Goldring
Now, even using a walker to get from her living room to her kitchen causes her excruciating pain. She is on pain killers and steroids.
“It was like I was put through a fire. It was like someone lit me on fire,” she said.
Goldring said she won’t get a flu shot again. Desmond Fordyce, her partner, said he is worried the vaccine wasn’t tested properly before widespread public vaccinations began.
“I think they’re killing you more than giving you something for making you better,” he said.
Dr. Glen Armstrong, head of the microbiology and infectious diseases department at the University of Calgary, said the H1N1 vaccine is safe. “It’s very clear that the benefits of having people get vaccinated, far, far outweigh the risks of the very small number of adverse reactions to the vaccine.”
So far, 25 million doses of the vaccine have been distributed across Canada. Nearly 6,000 H1N1 shots resulted in an adverse reaction, of which more than 200 were considered serious. Health officials are investigating 13 post-shot deaths.
Alberta health officials told CBC News they have talked to Goldring’s doctor and will continue to investigate what happened in her case.
The province has seen 1,276 people hospitalized with H1N1 since April 2009 and 71 deaths have been connected to the virus.

Well let’s look at it from this standpoint. Out of a total planetary population of around 6.8 billion people, only approximately 15,613 deaths [not all of which were actually confirmed] have been directly attributed to H1N1 as of late 2009 (www.flucount.org). In 1918, by comparison the mortality level attributed to the “Spanish flu” was 50 million deaths. This was a whopping 3 percent of the total world’s population which was 1.6 billion at the time. So just based on this measurable scale the Swine flu was indeed a big dud.
Despite this epidemic’s low mortality rate, it was never the less judged by both national government’s medical experts and the UN health officials in Geneva to be a “pandemic”. This alarmist term has been used irresponsibly in a “fast and loose” manner to seemingly panic people and get them to go get jabbed to the delight of the vaccines’ manufacturers. Officials during the height of the hysteria around June, spread highly exaggerated pronouncements about the extent and virulence of the “deadly outbreak” among the populace. Of course this was designed to deliberately scare the populace and it engendered a pandemic of fear which spread further and faster than the H1N1 –Swine flu bug itself.
Misusing terminology and making misleading claims
Pandemic, of course originates from the Greek words “pan” mean all and “demos” or people. Hence an outbreak of a dreaded contagious disease in order to qualify as a “pandemic” must affect the vast majority. This was certainly not the case in Mexico . Yet at a “critical” period in late April 2009 there were 148 deaths “suspected” to be (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/04/27) directly related to the flu. They occurred in an urban centre with over 20 million people. The “pandemic” prompted a virtual state of emergency to be enacted, which practically paralysed the entire capital.
Not only did governments evidently over- sell the severity of this virus as if it were a great deadly plague, and in the process mislead the public, they were also apparently and willingly gouged by “Big –Pharma” which over –charged their national clients to the delight of the vaccines’ manufacturers.(http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/oct/11/swine-flu-vaccine-baxter )
The H1N1 “hoax” turns into a full- fledged “fiasco”
In France the Swine flu “fiasco has resulted in millions of unused doses of the H1N1 vaccine piling up as it approached its expiry date in government warehouses. Since the mass vaccination campaign began last October, around 5 million people go the jab. The French health ministry purchased 94,000 million doses more than would cover the entire population of the country at a cost of $ 1.25 billion. The government stuck with vast quantities of doses which are decreasing in potency is frantically seeking to sell off their left –over stocks (but the manufacturers are reluctant to buy them back!). Others countries like Canada, unable to sell off the vaccines, is offloading or sending them to “needier” countries in the developing world as a gesture of their self-less generosity.

Andrew Wakefield, Scientific Censorship, and Fourteen Monkeys; A statement by Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey
At great risk to their professional careers, Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey have found the courage to dare to tell the truth about vaccines and autism. Despite the vicious attacks by the pro-vaccine zealots who will stop at nothing to destroy anyone who challenges conventional vaccine mythology, McCarthy and Carrey have issued a powerful, inspired statement that reveals the truth behind the Big Pharma smear campaign that is intent on destroying the reputation of Dr. Andrew Wakefield before he can publish the final results of this important new study.
NaturalNews reprints that statement here, unedited: Click Here
Let's just stop right there for a moment and consider what this says about the pharmaceutical industry: Even its own executives know their drugs are toxic enough to commit murder.
Jordan had been planning the murder-suicide for some time, it seems. She had left a suicide note in the hotel room, alongside thousands of pills scattered about the room. Jordan is reportedly worth $100 million -- money she accumulated largely by selling toxic pills that harmed other people. Now, it seems, she chose to turn those pills on herself and her own family.
Why is this not surprising?
”Public School Special Needs Crisis” which is an unfounded program. There is no special needs in school age children and no epidemic that warrants this increased vaccination program with 5 vaccines at one time. There is no crisis in Denver or any other US school and this is a campaign of damage to children’s health.
Administering just the H1N1 Swine Vaccine has caused miscarriages in pregnant mothers and now children are being subjected to as you will see in the video 5 vaccines at once. This is very disturbing to more than just parents but also health researchers who know the damage these kids are receiving in this agressive push to force vaccines in public schools and is entirely an experiment with horrible consquences.
In Markham, Ontario, Canada last month, two Canadians were diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, which paralyzes your body, after receiving the H1N1 Swine flu shot, according to the Toronto Sun.
The first patient, Donna Hartlen, a Whitby resident who is a mother blames the H1N1 shot she received on Dec. 13. She cannot stand without leaning on a walker, her legs are too numb to allow her to walk, the right side of her face is paralyzed, she cannot chew her food properly and her right eye cannot blink, therefore she wears a bandage.

ALL VACCINATIONS ARE CAUSING IMPAIRED BLOOD FLOW (Ischemia), CHRONIC ILLNESS, DISEASE AND DEATH FOR US ALL – PROVEN…see for yourself.
'This is a stern, yet humble, warning to all citizens of the globe. It is now proven that we are all being harmed by repeat vaccinations. This evidence must be circulated broadly in light of the imminent Fall, 2009 plan to turn North American schools into MASS vaccine centers to institute triple flu vaccine to us all. Children will be the first to be injected with experimental flu vaccines. The entire vaccine industry, as it turns out, has been experimental. We did not know that we were causing damages – for us all.
In case you are wondering what will happen, the answers are contained in this article. The same thing will happen as has been happening with all vaccines. Clinically silent ischemic brain and body damages will happen. The only difference is that you can now see these damages, with your own eyes, in the here and now, in real time, and in your family photos going back fifty or more years if you have to.'

Formaldehyde in the swine flu vaccine
The formulation used in FLULAVAL contains formaldehyde as a result of the vaccine manufacturing process. This is an inactivated virus, used for injection. Formaldehyde is used during vaccine processing in order to kill the virus.
Mercury in the new H1N1 vaccine
According to the package insert for FLULAVAL, there are 25 micrograms of mercury in each .5mL dose of the H1N1 vaccine distributed in multi-dose vials. There are no single-dose vials of this vaccine.

President Obama declares national emergency over swine flu pandemic, but why?
October 24, 2009
According to the CDC, swine flu infections have already peaked, and the pandemic is on its way out. Peak infection time was the middle of October, where one in five U.S. children experienced the flu, says the CDC. Out of nearly 14,000 suspected flu cases tested during the week ending on October 10, 2009, 99.6% of those were influenza A, and the vast majority of those were confirmed as H1N1 swine flu infections. (http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/)
Your rights as an American are no longer recognized under this national emergency declaration.
Even though the H1N1 pandemic appears to have peaked out, U.S. President Barack Obama has now declared a national emergency over swine flu infections. The reasoning behind such a declaration? According to the White House, it’s designed to "allow hospitals to better handle the surge in patients" by allowing them to bypass certain federal laws.
Emergency powers trump the Bill of Rights
That’s the public explanation for this, but the real agenda behind this declaration may be far more sinister. Declaring a national emergency immediately gives federal authorities dangerous new powers that can now be enforced at gunpoint, including:
• The power to force mandatory swine flu vaccinations on the entire population.
• The power to arrest, quarantine or "involuntarily transport" anyone who refuses a swine flu vaccination.
• The power to quarantine an entire city and halt all travel in or out of that city.
• The power to enter any home or office without a search warrant and order the destruction of any belongings or structures deemed to be a threat to public health.
• The effective nullification of the Bill of Rights. Your right to due process, to being safe from government search and seizure, and to remain silent to avoid self-incrimination are all null and void under a Presidential declaration of a national emergency.
None of this means that federal agents are going to march door to door arresting people at gunpoint if they refuse the vaccine, but they could if they wanted to. Your rights as an American are no longer recognized under this national emergency declaration.
The declaration of this national emergency seems suspicious from the start. Where’s the emergency? The number of people killed by swine flu in the United States is far smaller than the number of people killed each year from seasonal flu, according to CDC statistics. People obviously aren’t dropping dead by the millions from H1N1 influenza. Most people are just getting mild flu symptoms and a few days later they’re fine.
So where’s the emergency?
The only emergency I can see is the emergency fabricated by Big Pharma to sell more vaccines. By declaring a national emergency over the H1N1 pandemic, Obama is playing right into their hands.
I find the timing of all this curious. Two days ago, New York gave up on its efforts to require mandatory vaccinations of health care workers. This was designed to defuse a large number of planned protests from health freedom-conscious people who don’t want government-mandated chemicals pumped into their veins.
The planned protests in New York would have fueled yet more resistance among health care workers across the country, and had it been allowed to continue, it could have resulted in a huge nationwide backlash against swine flu vaccines. By backing off the vaccine mandate and blaming it on a vaccine shortage (http://www.naturalnews.com/027313_N…), and then having Obama declare a national emergency, our state and national leaders have halted the protests and put in place a pro-vaccine Big Brother mandate that can be enforced at gunpoint.
Big Pharma must be pleased with all this. With these emergency powers in place, all that’s necessary to force vaccinations upon the entire population is a larger supply of the vaccines — and that’s coming in November.

The measures taken by successive governments to save the politically corrupt, morally bankrupt, physically decrepit giant from collapse have served to only hasten its demise. While the decline has been decades in the making, the acceleration of ruinous policies under the current Administration is leading the United States – and much of the world – to the point of no return.
The "green shoots" sighted by Field Marshall Bernanke this past spring were a mirage. The 2010 economic "recovery" predicted by the same experts, authorities and financial boy scouts and cheerleaders who didn't see the economic crisis coming is pure delusion.
By 2012, even those in denial and still clinging to hope will be forced to face the truth. It will be called "Obamageddon" in America. The rest of the world will call it "The Greatest Depression."
Really...is there anything more to say other than..."Peace Out"?

“Chief Engineer” Hyman Brown
by Patrick Marks
Colorado 9-11 Visibility
While introducing an interview that appeared on NBC-TV on September 11, 2001, Tom Brokaw referred to Hyman Brown as the “architect” of the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers.[i]
Hyman Brown was not the architect of the Twin Towers.
In an article that appeared on September 10, 2007, The Jerusalem Post referred to Hyman Brown as the “Twin Towers chief engineer.”[ii]
Hyman Brown was not the Twin Towers chief engineer.
Hyman Brown, in various books, articles, lectures, and television interviews has been referred to as the “architect . . . chief engineer . . . project engineer [iii]. . . construction manager[iv] . . . fifth in command ”[v] of the Twin Towers.
None of it is true. What’s more, Hyman Brown admits that none of it is true, although he has made no effort to set the record straight.
The Twin Towers were designed by architect Minoru Yamasaki in the early 1960s . . . when Hyman Brown was an undergraduate at City College of New York.[vi] Construction on the Twin Towers took place in the late 1960’s . . . when Hyman Brown was attending California State University at Los Angeles. The Twin Towers were completed in 1971 . . . when Hyman Brown was employed at Tishman Realty and Construction in Los Angeles. According to his own resume,[vii] Hyman Brown began working at the World Trade Center in 1972, a full year after the Twin Towers were dedicated.[viii] Did he hold a position of authority after 1972? Maybe. But he held no important position before then, although everywhere he goes, from Boulder to Jerusalem, he strives to leave the impression that he did.
In a history of the World Trade Center entitled City in the Sky, architect Minoru Yamasaki is referred to six times, chief engineer John Skilling thirteen times, structural engineer Leslie Robertson eight times, and construction manager Ray Monti six times, but Hyman Brown is not mentioned.[ix] In a personal email to me, Leslie Roberston said that he never heard of Hyman Brown.[x] How could that be? How could the structural engineer not know the identity of the “architect”, the “chief engineer”, the “production manager”? Is that credible?
In an interview with me, conducted in June of 2008, Hyman Brown admitted that he held none of the titles attributed to him. “It was my first job out of college, I was 25 years old, and I was the guy who sharpened the pencils. . . . It was my job to open the trailer and make coffee in the morning.”
But even those modest claims are probably not true.
When I asked him how he could simultaneously be in graduate school in Los Angeles and an engineer in New York, Brown told me that he “commuted” between New York and Los Angeles from 1967 through 1970, but is that credible? The typical salary for a novice engineer in 1966 was approximately $9,000, or $173 a week. The cost of a one-way ticket from Los Angeles to New York during that period was $217.65,[xi] which means that a round trip ticket was probably around $400. To believe that Hyman Brown commuted between New York and Los Angeles on the company’s dime, you have to believe that Tishman Realty, which had a fixed contract of $3.5 million, paid weekly travel fees in excess of salary for a novice engineer, who, by his own admission, did little more than make coffee. Is that credible? It is even less credible that Brown footed the bill himself, since the 1967 cost of a round trip flight was more than double his salary. And even if he did commute, how could he possibly work full time in New York and attend school full time in Los Angeles? No matter how you slice it, the story doesn’t add up.
Why is this information important?
1. Hyman Brown is often cited as an “expert” on the construction of the World Trade Center. In the Tom Brokaw piece, for example, “architect” Hyman Brown “explained” why the Twin Towers collapsed. In a public talk in Boulder, Colorado, “5th in command” Hyman Brown “explained” how the steel beams melted.[xii] Hyman Brown is cited as an authority in documentaries made by the History Channel and the BBC, and even 9-11 Truth champion David Ray Griffin has quoted “construction manager” Hyman Brown.[xiii] Brown’s remarks are considered valuable because he was there. Problem is, he wasn’t there, in all probability, and even if he was, all he did was make coffee.
2. Brown’s “expert analysis” always supports the official Bush administration myth. Always. Brown “explains” why the steel melted and the buildings collapsed, even though his “explanation” has no basis in engineering, architecture, the forensic evidence, the temperature of jet fuel, the melting point of steel, or the laws of physics, and he uses his “authority” as “architect”, “chief engineer”, “production manager”, and “5th in command” to gain instant credibility. And when people believe him, they believe the Official Myth. I know people with PhD’s in the sciences who parrot Bush Administration propaganda because they heard Hyman Brown “explain” it to them. But if Hyman Brown was not “architect”, “chief engineer”, or “production manager”, if Hyman Brown was an undergraduate when the Twin Towers were planned, if Hyman Brown was in California when the Twin Towers were built, if Hyman Brown is a complete stranger to the men who actually built the Twin Towers, what does that say about his credibility?
3. The Myth of 9-11, for which “chief engineer” Hyman Brown is one of the most vocal spokesmen, has been used to justify unprovoked attacks on Iraq and Afghanistan, the murder of between 100,000 and 1,000,000 Iraqi citizens, the building of concentration camps, domestic spying, suspension of habeas corpus, torture, the payment of billions of dollars to shady defense contractors, a national debt that is counted in the trillions, and hundreds of other domestic and foreign policy disasters. Indeed, The Myth of 9-11 is so entrenched that Barack Obama himself pledged to go after the terrorists in Afghanistan. It might seem like an innocent prank to fake your credentials and get on TV, but Hyman Brown’s testimony is far from innocent. He did not create the 9-11 Myth, of course, but he lied in order to perpetuate it, and he lied early, when the myth was still being formed. It would have developed without him, I’m sure, but in his small way, he has been a cog in the Death Machine.xi
The question is, why was NBC News interviewing Hyman Brown in the first place, on the very day of the 9-11 disaster, when he
. . . wasn’t the architect (although Tom Brokaw claimed he was)?
. . . wasn’t the project engineer (although NBC correspondent Roger O’Neal claimed he was)?
. . . wasn’t even living in New York when the Twin Towers were built?
Why did NBC call him? Or did he call them? But if they called him, why? Where did they get his name? He isn’t mentioned in any book I have read about the construction of the Twin Towers. His own resume places him in California during the years when the Twin Towers were built. Why call him when people who played key roles in the project were available? Was his name on a list? And if so, where did that list come from? Who compiled it? Was the Bush administration involved? Why call him when five minutes of fact-checking would have revealed that he was neither “architect” nor “construction manager”? Why did NBC fail to do that fact-checking? And if he called them, why? Was it ego? Was it delusions of grandeur? Was he seeking his 15 minutes of fame? Or was he on the payroll of the Bush administration? Was it Hyman Brown’s job to spread disinformation? And why did NBC bite? Were they merely incompetent or were they actively seeking an “expert” to lend credence to the Official Myth?
I don’t know the answers to those questions. All I know is, something fishy is going on.

April 25 (Bloomberg) -- Mexican President Felipe Calderon declared an emergency in his country’s swine flu outbreak, giving him powers to order quarantines and suspend public events.
The first case was seen in Mexico on April 13. The outbreak coincided with President Barack Obama’s trip to Mexico City on April 16. Obama was received at Mexico’s anthropology museum in Mexico City by Felipe Solis, a distinguished archeologist who died the following day from symptoms similar to flu, Reforma newspaper reported. The newspaper didn’t confirm if Solis had swine flu or not.

Report: Tamiflu may increase abnormal acts
Authorities urge caution over Tamiflu fears
The World Today - Tuesday, 21 April , 2009
Medical researchers in Japan have released a study which suggests that the anti-flu drug Tamiflu may not be the saviour that it's been painted. They say that it increases what's referred to as 'abnormal behaviour' in young people who take the drug.
Tamiflu is used to treat various types of influenza and governments around the world have amassed enormous stockpiles of it just in case of a pandemic of bird flu.
For now though, the only country which sees Tamiflu prescribed on a regular basis for the flu is Japan, where there have been reports of children going so far as trying to jump from balconies after taking the drug over there.
Health officials' worries at the beginning of the season did come to fruition: The flu's best weapon, the anti-viral medication Tamiflu, was ineffective.
"About 99 percent of the cases that we tested against Tamiflu were resistant,"...

Instead, she and her slain family were a focal point of prayers and remembrances at a Mass at the church in northwest Maryland.
Rev. Kevin Farmer opened the 9 a.m. service today by telling more than 400 somber parishioners that he had "no words to offer" to describe the "unspeakable act" that Billotti-Wood, 33, and her three young children suffered at the hands of their husband and father, Christopher A. Wood, 34, who shot them and then killed himself. Wood left five separate suicide notes to family members, scattered about the house. One said he was having psychological problems and taking medication,...

It’s that time again, time to pay the bankers what is owed at gunpoint. Back in the day, when fear of the IRS was not as prevalent as it is today, the government employed Hollywood propaganda to make the plebs feel good about forking over their hard-won earnings.
In the cartoon here, produced in 1943 during the Second World War, Donald Duck is pressed into service to make Americans feel good about paying taxes. Donald’s cartoon was rolled out the same year Milton Friedman, a Treasury Department economist at the time, came up with the idea of imposing a withholding tax.
In 1940 the government decided the quarterly installment plan for paying taxes wasn’t going to work — not with a huge and expensive war on the horizon — so the idea came to Friedman and his fellow bureaucrats to steal the money before the average pleb received his paycheck. In 1943, with the contrived war going full-tilt boogie and the masses sufficiently brainwashed with ad nauseam patriotism and the hyped-up threat posed by Hitler and Hirohito, the government imposed the withholding tax. It also cranked up the tax rate.
After the war the Treasury admitted the wartime withholding not only “greatly eased the collection of the tax,” but “also greatly reduced the taxpayer’s awareness of the amount of tax being collected, i.e. it reduced the transparency of the tax, which made it easier to raise taxes in the future.” It was grand theft larceny on a monumental scale.
In fact, it can be argued that the war was nothing if not a master scam perpetuated by the bankers in order to further enrich themselves and increase their power and influence.
As the late Antony C. Sutton revealed, there is plenty of documentary evidence a number of critical associations between the Wall Street international bankers and the rise of Hitler and Nazism in Germany. “Wall Street financed the German cartels in the mid-1920s which in turn proceeded to bring Hitler to power,” writes Sutton, and “the financing for Hitler and his S.S. street thugs came in part from affiliates or subsidiaries of U.S. firms, including Henry Ford in 1922, payments by I.G. Farben and General Electric in 1933, followed by the Standard Oil of New Jersey and I.T.T.” The international bankers used political influence in the U.S. to cover up their wartime collaboration.
Recall George Bush’s grandfather, the late senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany. “Remarkably, little of Bush’s dealings with Germany has received public scrutiny, partly because of the secret status of the documentation involving him,” write Ben Aris and Duncan Campbell for The Guardian.
Remarkably? It is simply business as usual.
The same crew of international bankers also backed the Bolshevik Revolution and subsequently profited from the establishment of a Soviet Russia and the astronomically expensive Cold War. (See Sutton’s Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler, p. 124.)
In her book, Web of Debt, Ellen Hodgson Brown writes that the unconstitutional income tax established with the passage of the Sixteenth Amendment in 1913 was “instituted primarily to secure a reliable source of money to pay the interest due to the bankers on the government’s securities [debt securities], and that continues to be its principal use today.” The illegal income tax was imposed on the clueless plebs (it was sold as a “soak the rich” scheme by the bankers) at the same time the privately owned Federal Reserve was established to keep the “taxpayers in perpetual debt for money created privately with accounting entries,” in other words funny money created out of thin air.
Hollywood no longer needs to make cartoons to convince us paying taxes to international bankers is the “patriotic” thing to do. Millions of people accept this federally enforced fleecing operation with a mixture of resignation and fear. In fact, decades of propaganda have reduced many Americans to the point where they believe forking over a huge share of their earnings is a positive thing. Of course, they have no idea the money is going to the bankers.
“Just less than half of U.S. residents asked say the amount of federal income taxes they pay is ‘about right,’ a Gallup Poll reported on April 8, according to United Press International.
Donald Duck’s services are no longer required.
