Pakistan TV Report Contradicts US Claim of Bin Laden’s Death “The Death of Osama bin Laden Were we fed a a pack of lies? Article by Paul Craig Roberts”

“Therefore, it seems that although initially, the TV station was overjoyed with this interview, they changed their tune, twenty four hours later. (for some unknown reason.)”

Readers can arrive at their own conclusions. It seems clear that under intense pressure and serious threats from the US government, the Pakistani government fell in line with the US government’s claim that a commando raid had killed bin Laden and all had returned safely, and that the TV news organization also got the message to get in line.

It is likely that the many witnesses who observed the dead from the helicopter crash have been warned to keep quiet. However, a news organization, should one be so inclined, could certainly interview Bashir and the 200 others who saw the dead bodies. A good reporter, perhaps accompanied by trained psychologists, would be able to tell if people were lying out of fear and encourage some to speak anonymously.

Tip from Afghanistan Posted by Ann Barnhardt – August 7, AD 2011 6:57 AM MST I received a tip from a soldier stationed with an aviation brigade out of Jalalabad overnight. "Almost immediately, after news of the crash began to spread, we were placed in an internet and phone blackout. This means communication with family, friends and "others" back home, in real time, is prevented until further notice. However, there are also chinook pilots, crews a … Read More

A Marine Among Us

August 7, 2011 Leave a comment

Friends:

Tom Moore and I held a bash recently to celebrate the event of former LCpl Mike Smith showering Jane Fonda with tobacco juice. At that event were former Marines from Texas, Oregon, and Washington State, Marines from Pfc to bird colonel. Lots of locals. Mike received these accolades with the humility which marks him as a sincere and devoted Marine, a Marine who spoke (spat) for us all as an expression of disdain for one who should have been tried for treason and imprisoned.

In April Jane Fonda had a book-signing session in a bookstore in Kansas City. In the line of worshipers waiting to get Fonda to sign her new book was one former CAP Marine who did not share the enthusiasm of the crowd. After about 90 minutes he got to the table where sat Jane Fonda, basking in the admiration of her misled left-wing following. Mike placed the book in front of her, gathered up the oral pressure needed, and blasted her with a mouthful of tobacco juice. Instantly gaining the respect of hundred of thousands of Vietnam vets who had been demeaned and abused by Fonda’s actions supporting the enemies of America, he quickly left the store, walked about fifteen feet beyond the door and waited for the inevitable arrest by the cops.

I have heard some criticism from others who didn’t like the idea that he “ran” from the store. My friends, he didn’t run. He is 60% disabled. But he knew every person in that store was a supporter of Hanoi Jane, so he quickly — as quickly as he could — left the store to avoid whatever might have been in store for him from a hostile crowd.

He was arrested by

HAS THE SECOND 1776 ARRIVED?

by Ron Ewart, ©2011

(Aug. 7, 2011) — Some may call the rising of the Tea Party Movement, at this historical moment, as providence. Others might say that the time was right for them to appear on the scene, as government grew more fiscally irresponsible and corrupt. And still others might proffer that it is merely random probability that a freedom-loving, grass-roots movement suddenly was born in the hearts and minds of millions of Americans to take hold in the body politic.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Bananas

August 7, 2011 Leave a comment

Jacksonville is bananas for bananas. Consumers here eat so many that Dole Fresh Fruit has bestowed on us the title “Top Banana City.” But how much do you really know about bananas?

1. They’re naturally radioactive, but it’s no big deal. We’re exposed to low levels of natural radiation every day; it’s even emitted by our bodies. So it’s OK to keep eating bananas, radiation and all.

2. Bananas are berries. Botanically speaking, “berry” is defined as a fruit produced from a single ovary, so bananas are in the same category as grapes, cranberries and tomatoes. But botanically, strawberries and blueberries aren’t berries.

3. They don’t grow on trees. What is usually referred to as a banana tree is actually a plant – specifically, a large herb.

4. Most bananas eaten in the United States are of the Cavendish variety, which is in danger of being wiped out by an untreatable disease, TR4, according to a University of Florida researcher.

5. Banana beer is popular in Africa. Ripe bananas are peeled, juiced, mixed with sorghum or millet flour and fermented to create an orange alcoholic drink. There’s also Wells Banana Bread Beer brewed in England, and the alcohol content is 5.2 percent.

6. Why do people say, “Is that a banana in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?” The phrase is widely credited to Mae West, but her version involved no bananas. Supposedly, in real life in the 1930s, what she said to either a Los Angeles police officer or an interviewer was, “Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?” Or maybe she said “pistol.” The only time she said it on screen was in her last movie, “Sextette,” but she said, “pleased.”
