“From underwear bombers to Libya’s globetrotting death squads, it turns out that the US government itself is driving this omnipresent global threat and constitutes the premier state-sponsor of terrorism.
From the very creation of Al Qaeda in the mountains of Afghanistan, to Al Qaeda death squads bombing targets across Syria today, the US is machinating behind the scenes to perpetuate its foreign policy through a false strategy of tension where the villains and “heroes” are of their own creation.
It is only through apathy and ignorance that they succeed in foisting this narrative upon the public, as well as our daily patronage of the corporate-financier interests devising and driving this agenda.” – Tony Cartalucci, “Latest Al Qaeda Boogeyman is CIA Agent.”
On April 28, 2012, The New York Times published a “truther” article with the headline, “Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the F.B.I.” I couldn’t believe my eyes. Is this the same New York Times that said Iraq was connected to Al-Qaeda and that the moon is made out of cheese?When did conspiracy theorists start taking over the minds of the editors of the New York Times?
“The agent, who was in Yemen, was liaising with the CIA before handing the device over to intelligence services,” reports the Daily Mail. “The explosive device was supposed to be smuggled aboard an aircraft undetected and then detonated.”
It has been known for some time that British intelligence runs terrorist operations and protects key terrorist assets.
In 2005, a terrorism expert and a former prosecutor for the Justice Department, John Loftus, revealed that the so-called mastermind of the 7/7 London bombings, Haroon Rashid Aswat, was a British intelligence asset.
Aswat associate Abu Hamza al-Masri, an influential cleric at the notorious Finsbury Park mosque in London, had a long and productive relationship with British intelligence. He worked with the Special Branch of the British Police and MI5. He told his aides that he was “beyond the reach of British law.”
Billionaire Facebook cofounder Eduardo Saverin is renouncing his citizenship ahead of the company’s IPO at the end of next week.
Saverin is the cofounder who got booted from the company WAY back in 2005. They made a movie about it.
His 4 percent stake is worth about $4 billion and he’s going to save a boatload on taxes with the move.
Singapore, where Saverin lives, does not have a capital gains tax.
He will have to pay an exit tax on his holdings, but it will be at Facebook’s valuation now, not after the IPO.

Iowa Republicans have a total of 28 delegates to this year’s national convention in Tampa, Florida. Two delegate selection committee members from each of the state’s four congressional districts met at the Republican headquarters in Des Moines today to draft the slate of 13 at-large delegates that must be ratified by convention delegates at the state convention on June 15th.
Each state is awarded delegates based on a number of factors. Each state starts with ten delegates, five for each U.S. Senator. States are then awarded three delegates for every congressional district. The three members of the Republican National Committee, including the State Chairman, National Committeewoman, and the National Committeeman, also each receive a delegate spot. That means the base number for national delegates for Iowa is 25.

If Steve Jobs’ “Oh, wow… oh WOW!” wasn’t enough for you…
Now we’ve got another sane, intelligent, sensible, only vaguely religious person giving us a peek of life on the other side… and boy is she ever convincing:
I felt no pain… I was struggling (drowning in a kayak)… at that point, I really did give-up my spirit over to God.
I immediately experienced complete and absolute peace… calm… I had no pain, I felt great.
And I was being held, and comforted, and re-assured as then my body was sucked-out of the boat (into the water) and my spirit peeled-away from my body.
I was joyously-greeted by this host of other people or spirits, -whatever you want to call them- I had know them for an eternity, and they knew me. And they were so happy, and they did take me along this path to -not a bright light- but this brilliant, beautiful hall of sorts- like this brilliant, beautiful hall of sorts… like a giant, domed entrance hall.
… this hall was brilliantly glowing with such intense love… it was God’s love.
Obama Raises $15 Mil at Clooney’s, Says Sometimes He Forgets About the Recession

RUSH: Obama is at the Clooney fundraiser last night, where, by the way, the story on that is, the original expectation was ten million. That’s what they were gonna raise. But then, our brave, courageous president went out there and said that he thinks the states ought to determine gay marriage, and that gay people should be able to get married. Lo and behold, the floodgates opened, and an additional five million was raised at the Clooney fundraiser. I’m not believing that either. The whole thing is a crock. They got 15 from the get-go.
ou got Obama in Clooney’s house, the tickets have been sold, but they want us to believe that there’s all this newfound enthusiasm in Hollywood where he was lagging behind a little bit.
There was some distrust, some disappointment, some people simply didn’t have that confidence. But then Obama came out and he said, “I think the states ought to determine whether or not gay people get married.” For some reason that got another five million. While he was there, if this isn’t in every Romney ad from now ’til November, somebody needs to be fired. Obama said, quote,
