Navy sued for failing to detect pregnancy

Webmasters comment www.theaussiedigger.com  Does this woman want somebody to hold her hand when she coughs? Give me a break. Hasn’t she ever heard of the contraceptive pill or condoms or the morning after pill? This sounds like a setup to some degree. What ever happened to personal responsibility, to making one’s own choices in life and to being a responsible adult and citizen. The Navy should not countenance any legal liability. We are breeding a nation of bludgers and blamers. And in any case the father, if known, has a legal and moral responsibility to help provide for this child.

Taliban will be defeated: generals

EXCLUSIVE Brendan Nicholson AUSTRALIAN generals in Afghanistan are confident they can defeat the Taliban before control is handed over to local forces.

Webmasters comment www.theaussiedigger.com  I don’t know what these Officers are on but I wouldn’t mind some of it. The Afghanis have been fighting foreigners for the last 3000 years. Any amateur student of Afghani politics understands that the Taliban is expert at giving the impression it is being defeated for strategic reasons, only to reappear when it suits them and at a time which suits them. The time which suits them is when foreign forces leave or hand over full responsibility for security to local Afghani Forces. In any case this War will never be won militarily and the Taliban will have to be engaged politically at some point. The real danger is the US and it’s Allies will never withdraw from Afghanistan because they have economic and strategic interests in remaining in the country. Australian Soldiers are not in Afghanistan to protect us from terrorism, to bring democracy to Afghanistan or to protect our own democracy. They have been sent to Afghanistan to underpin the US Alliance, to help prop up corrupt President Karzai and to protect western economic interests in the region.

TIME Magazine Pens Five Page Spread To Convince America Ron Paul Can’t Win

Steve Watson
Aug 26, 2011

“He performed strongly at Ames,” Time writer Alex Altman told Politico. “I thought, and my editors think, that he had a valid complaint that he was being overlooked.”

On the surface this sounds great from a Ron Paul follower’s point of view, however, it quickly becomes clear from reading Altman’s blog that the Time piece represents a continuation of the desperate establishment attempt to convince voters that Ron Paul does not have a snowflake’s chance in hell.

Food Inflation Riots Around The World

The first map is a disturbing illustration of food and inflation riots around the globe in 2011 (updated through Feb. 19) that I came across on Google.

Most of the inflation riots and protests are concentrated in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region, but as you can see on the Google map, they are starting to migrate into Europe, as well as China and India.

In the U.S., anemic growth, an ongoing housing depression, high unemployment and two rounds of quantitative easing (QE) probably have laid a pretty solid foundation for a similar riot map if Chairman Bernanke decides to grace us with QE3. I guess we shall find out when he delivers his speech at Jackson Hole on Friday morning, Aug. 16.

Obama’s Illegal Assaults – How once-controversial ‘war on terror’ tactics became the new normal

Barack Obama has continued virtually all of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney’s once-controversial terrorism and civil liberties policies, a fact now recognized across the political spectrum. Even the right wing acknowledges these policies have continued under the Obama presidency, which is interesting, because for decades Republicans have made political hay by accusing Democrats of being weak on national security (or “soft on terrorism” in this age of terror).

THE NEW ANTI-SEMITISM KNOWN AS ZIONISM

It is absolutely the case that the Jews should not be held collectively responsible for the actions of Israel. But it should be pointed out that it is just such collective responsibility that Zionists insist upon. Zionist ideology demands that Israel be recognized as representing world Jewry. Zionists expect that, in return, all Jews will identify with and actively support Israel–feel one with the “Jewish state.” They classify those Jews who do not recognize their collective responsibility to Israel as somehow deficient or perhaps “self-hating” Jews. So let us get this straight, if holding Jews collectively responsible for the acts of Israel is anti-Semitic, what does that make the Zionists?

Fukushima ‘likely’ exploded, 168 Hiroshimas ‘so far’

Radioactive caesium-137 released by the Fukushima nuclear energy plant catastrophe so far equals 168 Hiroshima bombs a Japanese news report said Thursday, reported by AFP as Japanese government argues that, since there was no explosion, the figures err and U.S. regulatory officials indicate an explosion at Fukushima probably did occur when the earthquake and tsunami triggered the world’s worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl 25 years ago according to Thom Hartmann’s interview Thursday with nuclear expert on Russia Today.


The media told us all that this explosion of Fukushima Reactor 3 was a Hydrogen explosion. But Hydrogen, when it burns, burns with a clear blue flame, almost invisible. Note the orange flash at the moment of the blast. Hydrogen, when it burns, produces water vapor, or steam. The combustion products emerging from the ruined reactor do not look like a steam blast. Burning hydrogen is not high-velocity, so pulverized concrete does not account for the color. As a side note, burned Plutonium, Pu4+, is yellow brown.

Today, of course, TEPCO and Japan have admitted that reactor 3 had indeed melted down and breached containment within days of the quake. The claim that the explosions were just hydrogen was a lie.

14 Conspiracy Theories That The Media Now Admits Are Conspiracy FACTS!

How many times have you heard the mainstream media dismiss certain points of view as “conspiracy theories”? It seems as though one of the easiest ways to brush something off is to label it as something that only “conspiracy theorists” would believe. Well, you know what? A whole lot of the time the “conspiracy theorists” are right and the mainstream media is wrong. In fact, we owe a great debt to “conspiracy theorists” because they will go places and investigate things that the mainstream media would never even touch. The reality is that the mainstream media only tells us what the government and the big corporations want us to hear, and much of the time it is those in the alternative media that are left with the task of trying to figure out what the real truth is.

9/11 Pentagon Eyewitness Accounts

Steve Anderson, Director of Communications, USA TODAY

A few moments later, as I was looking down at my desk, the plane caught my eye.

It didn’t register at first. I thought to myself that I couldn’t believe the pilot was flying so low. Then it dawned on me what was about to happen. I watched in horror as the plane flew at treetop level, banked slightly to the left, drug it’s wing along the ground and slammed into the west wall of the Pentagon exploding into a giant orange fireball. Then black smoke. Then white smoke.

As we get closer to the 10th Anniversary of the 9-11 false-flag attack, government propagandists are trying as hard as they can to push the no-plane nonsense to the forefront of the 9-11 truth movement, so that the media has a quick and easy means to ridicule and dismiss those who do not accept the official story.

Even now I am being email bombed by obvious shills insisting I must agree with the no-plane theory.

Bull biscuits!

These witness accounts underscore one of the major flaws with the no-plane theory.

Numerous witnesses saw the 757 fling towards the Pentagon. Had the plane flown over the Pentagon, it would follow logically that an equal number of witnesses would have seen it flying away. In actuality, due to the noise, we would expect more witnesses to see the plane flying away from the Pentagon than saw it flying towards the building.

So, where are they?

WASHINGTON (AFP) – US intelligence agencies have a crucial role to play in tracking down Libya’s Moamer Kadhafi but are anxious to keep a low profile, current and former officials said Thursday.

Although the military and the State Department sought to distance Washington from the manhunt, current and former officials acknowledged that finding the fugitive strongman was an important priority for US spy agencies.

“The Zionist regime’s establishment was based on numerous deceptions and lies and one of the biggest lies was the Holocaust,” Ahmadinejad said in a speech after an anti-Israeli rally in Tehran and other Iranian cities.

Why one-fifth of US representatives went to Israel this summer

The visit is funded as an educational trip by the American Israel Education Foundation – a group affiliated with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

While such visits are routine, the unusual size of this year’s delegation reflects several factors ranging from the UN vote and rising criticism of White House policy toward Israel, to the bumper crop of freshman representatives who don’t have to spend the summer campaigning for reelection. AIPAC wants to use the visit to make the case to newcomers for continued US foreign aid of about $3 billion at a time of fiscal austerity.

Any Congressional representative who vote for this 3 billion dollar funding for Israel, while Americans are sleeping homeless, kids are not getting enough food to eat, and our infrastructure is crumbling, should be thrown out of office and handed their hats at the earliest available opportunity in the election cycle.

No person can serve two masters; anyone serving Israel has obviously decided that this country, and their constituents are irrelevant: that’s the reality.

Analysts: Libya’s Seized Assets Exceed Their Annual GDP

Activist Post

The media has spun a great victory for the rebel forces in Tripoli despite gross inaccuracies in reporting and falsified imagery of celebrations. The triumphant story line seems to now be meeting the reality of the challenge ahead for NATO’s ragtag rebels. Consequently, calls of increasing funding to the rebels grow louder.

The Associated Press reports: “The Libyan opposition says they urgently need at least $5 billion of those assets to pay state salaries, maintain vital services and repair critical oil facilities.”

According to analysts in the AP report, the West has seized upwards of $110B in assets from Gadhafi’s Libya. If accurate, these frozen investments exceed the entire 2010 gross domestic product of Libya, which was $96.1B…

‘Gaddafi switching to guerrilla mode’

Gaddafi has told the Libyan people that his retreat from his compound in Tripoli, which was seized by rebels on Tuesday, is a tactical move. Michael Maloof, an ex-Pentagon official, explains to RT why the war in Libya is far from at an end.

­After almost six months of stalemate, the rebel assault on Tripoli came as a surprise to many. But strategically speaking, some analysts find the rebels advance has left them spread thinly and therefore vulnerable to a counter-attack by loyalist forces.

SUNDAY: “We will capture Gaddafi in two hours!”

MONDAY: “We will capture Gaddafi in five hours!”

TUESDAY: “We will capture Gaddafi tomorrow!”

WEDNESDAY: “We will capture Gaddafi by week’s end!”

THURSDAY: “We will capture Gaddafi any moment now!”

FRIDAY: “Hurricane Irene!! Hurricane Irene!! Hurricane Irene!! Hurricane Irene!! Hurricane Irene!! Hurricane Irene!!”

War? “There is no war” in Libya

“This is war in all but name,” notes Michel Chossudovsky. “These are war crimes in all but name. And the Western mainstream media are complicit in these war crimes. The Western media have made absurdities acceptable through their non-reporting and distortion of crimes by NATO powers. If people can be made to believe absurdities, then they can be made to accept atrocities.”

One has to wonder, with the battle for Tripoli having been so horrendously botched, and Ghadaffi still alive and (understandably and angrily) adamant that he is going no where, what NATO’s next move will be.

The bombing campaign has been an utter failure, and the only thing that could possibly save this military misadventure is a rapid, huge infusion of ground troops. But where will those ground troops be coming from?!? that’s the 64,000 dollar question right now.

Cantor Says No Earthquake Disaster Relief For His Home State Unless Spending Is Cut Elsewhere

“There is an appropriate federal role in incidents like this,” Cantor said. That role? The bare minimum. According to Cantor, Congress’s traditional practice of providing disaster relief without strings attached — a policy its followed for years — is going way beyond the call of duty.

If Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) asks for federal aid, Cantor insists that the relief be offset elsewhere in the federal budget:

“The next step will be for Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) to decide whether to make an appeal for federal aid, Cantor said. The House Majority Leader would support such an effort but would look to offset the cost elsewhere in the federal budget.

But Eric Cantor wants YOUR money to flow to Israel without any strings attached and indeed suggested moving Israel’s money from foreign aid to the military budget, to protect Israel from funding cuts brought about by the crashed economy!

Why does Eric Cantor place Israel’s needs above those of Virginia? Simple. He is PAID to do that, some $200,000 from AIPAC and other pro-Israel groups!

Eric Cantor accepts bribes to place a foreign government’s needs above those of Americans in his own district!

Billions Meant for Struggling Homeowners May Pay Down Deficit Instead

With housing prices dropping sharply, and foreclosure filings against more than 1 million properties in the first half of this year, the Obama administration is scrambling for ways to help homeowners.

One place they won’t be looking: an estimated $30 billion from the bailout that was slated to help homeowners but is likely to remain unspent.

Instead, Congress has mandated that the leftover money be used to pay down the debt.

Of the $45.6 billion in Trouble Asset Relief Program funds meant to aid homeowners, the most recent numbers available show that only about $2 billion has actually gone out the door.

The low number reflects how little the government’s home loan modification and other programs have actually helped homeowners deal with the foreclosure crisis.

Feel totally expendable to this administration yet?!?!?

Libya: NATO Humiliation Increasing per Airstrike

Each NATO warplane that passes over Libya’s coast and releases its ordnance upon the city of Tripoli is a glaring reminder that not only have the NATO-backed rebels failed to take the city, but the fighting there is beyond their ability to face without constant air support. As each bomb tears through Tripoli’s already NATO-battered infrastructure – most recently destroying a fire station in the Abu Salim district – the world is given daily affirmations of just how duplicitous and premature NATO’s desperate claims of “victory” were, made now nearly a week ago.

Unless NATO is able to place a massive number of ground troops in Libya, and right the heck now, this alleged “cakewalk” of a “revolution” is about to become one of the most truly rank “charlie foxtrots” in military history.

It appears that NATO command’s hubristic “magical thinking”, driven by its need to appear “butch” after its decade-long failure in Afghanistan, pushed it into making some really bad decisions on Libya. Combine that with a lack of real intel, in terms of both Ghadaffi’s military resources, and the huge level of public support for him, and, “voila”; you have a catastrophe on your hands.

Without ground troops, NATO may well be looking at their very own “Saigon moment” in Libya.

And one has to wonder; just where will those ground troops come from?!?

Government’s move to monitor online sparks public outcry

While the government defends its new monitoring program of online postings concerning the accident at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant to stem the spread of “inaccurate” information, critics say it harkens back to Big Brother.

The Agency for Natural Resources and Energy said tweets on Twitter and postings to blogs will be monitored for groundless and inaccurate information that could inflame and mislead the public.

The agency said it is trying to “track down inaccurate information and to provide correct ones instead.”

But critics are skeptical about the agency’s motive, especially because the government has been under fire for failing to provide an accurate picture of what has been occurring at the plant and the spread of radioactive contamination.

This is complete, Grade-A, bovine excrement.

The Japanese government has, from the inception of this crisis, moved heaven and earth to financially shield the stockholders in the electric company and GE from any potential financial damage, and short-change the Japanese people from getting the critically, desperately needed to protect their lives and those of the people they care about.

And now, for many, it is way too late.

34 Pieces Of Evidence That Prove That The Middle Class In America Is Rapidly Shrinking

When most of us were growing up, we understood that there was an unspoken promise that if we got good grades, stayed out of trouble, worked really hard and did everything we were told to do, the system would reward us.

Well, today there are millions of Americans that have done all of those things but don’t have anything to show for it.

As large numbers of hard working people continue to fall out of the middle class, there is a growing sense that “the system” has betrayed us all.

Sadly, the truth is that the U.S. economy is dying. The endless prosperity that we all enjoyed in the past is gone and it is never going to come back.

The “system” is gamed in favor of those who already have a great deal of money.

These numbers speak for themselves, and it is only a matter of time before things may well break down completely in this country.

Jon Huntsman: Shared sacrifice needed in this country

Republican presidential candidate and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman said Thursday on PBS NewsHour that “people at all levels” would have sacrifice to repair America’s budget problems.

Memo to Jon Huntsman: attempting to talk to the American people about “sacrifice” demonstrates, very clearly, your tin ear, blind eyes, and total obliviousness to the real condition of far too many Americans right now, and that is very telling.

They have lost their jobs to offshoring, thanks to Federal tax incentives which make it attractive for corporations to do so, and can barely pay the bills working two or three minimum wage jobs just to stay alive.

They have lost their homes because they can no longer pay the mortgages for which they honestly qualified when they bought those homes. And the fraudulent mortgage-backed securities many times have taken those homes from them, with no real sense of who actually owned the bundled title to those homes.

They have lost their children to immoral and illegal wars which have left this Federal government morally and fiscally bankrupt.

Social Security and Medicare were supposed to be trust funds, which Congress has looted, over decades, for wars, to bail out Wall Street, and pay for Israel’s continued genocide against the Palestinian people.

They have “sacrificed” trillions of dollars in interest to the Federal Reserve, a private bank no more “Federal” than “Federal Express”, when Congress and the President understand full well that the country can legally print its own money.

So please; do not talk to the American people about “sacrifice”; they didn’t create the fiscal mess in which the Federal Government finds itself; the Federal government did it to itself.

Japanese government approves over $900,000 in funds to combat “erroneous information” about Fukushima

The crisis at Fukushima was not only a crisis for the people of Japan and the nuclear industry as a whole; it was also a public relations disaster for the Japanese government.

TEPCO, the Japanese utility company that operated Fukushima Daiichi, along with the Japanese government were consistently exposed telling blatant lies or misrepresentations of the truth.

Now, in an attempt to mitigate the public relations fallout that has ensued from their deceit of the Japanese people and those around the globe, the government is devoting roughly 70 million yen or $913,000 to combating what they bill “erroneous information” about the disaster.

NATO nations set to reap spoils of Libya war

It looks like the more telling news on Libya has migrated to the business pages. With jubilant reporting of Gaddafi’s imminent downfall seizing headlines, it’s the financial pages that have the clinical analysis. So, for instance, it is in this section that the Independent reports a “dash for profit in the post-war Libya carve up”.

Similarly, Reuters, under the headline, “Investors eye promise, pitfalls in post-Gaddafi Libya” noted that a new government in that country could “herald a bonanza for Western companies and investors”.

Before Tripoli has completely fallen, before Gaddafi and his supporters have stepped down and before the blood dries on the bodies that have yet to be counted, Western powers are already eyeing up what they view us just rewards for the intervention.

And you fell for the lie that this invasion was on “Humanitarian” grounds!

Meanwhile, note that the US is blocking Russia and China from negotiating any deals for Libyan oil under the new puppet regime.

Corporate media again admitting Western boots are on the ground in Libya yet delusion still rampant

Early in the conflict the British publication the Daily Mail covered the presence of 300+ SAS and SBS troops on the ground in Libya, however most of the mainstream media continued to pretend that there were no Western troops present.

Despite the complete lack of journalistic integrity involved in pushing such a false narrative, the Western media has had no problem acting like the Libyan rebels are acting alone.

However, the Daily Mail has, yet again, revealed that this is far from reality and has flippantly revealed that there are indeed SAS (British Special Forces) troops in Libya participating in the uprising against Muammar al-Gaddafi..

Obama upheld ‘evisceration of the rule of law for political elites’

“Imagine if, for example, we decided to announce tomorrow that we were no longer going to prosecute murder or rape or child abductions because we didn’t want to ‘keep looking backwards,’” he said on MSNBC’s The Last Word. “What do you think would happen? Obviously there would be a lot more people engaging in murder, rape, and child abduction.”

Greenwald added that American political culture had “decided our highest political officials are free to break the law without consequences” and Obama had continued the “evisceration of the rule of law for political elites.”

Unless and until there is a full and complete investigation and prosecution of the crimes of the Bush administration, this country will never regain its moral compass, or its moral standing on the world stage.

But unfortunately right now, it appears that this will only happen when pigs fly.

Truth be told, this is the closest I’ve ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That’s it. No big deal. Just three stories.

The first story is about connecting the dots.

NATO’s Libya War – A Nuremberg Level Crime

The US/UK/French-led war on Libya will be remembered as one of history’s greatest crimes. It violates the letter and spirit of international law and America’s Constitution.

The Nuremberg Tribunal’s Chief Justice Robert Jackson (a US Supreme Court Justice) called Nazi war crimes “the supreme international crime against peace.”

His November 21, 1945 opening remarks said:

“The wrongs which we seek to condemn and punish have been so calculated, so malignant, and so devastating, that civilization cannot tolerate their being ignored, because it cannot survive their being repeated.”

He called aggressive war “the greatest menace of our times.”

Silver Shield’s Final Warning

I do not believe we will see $100 silver, because of the massive fraud in the metal suppression business will make silver unattainable. Silver and gold are direct competitors to the Dollar. The folks at the Fed, the Treasury and JP Morgan do not want to see silver rise in price. They suppress the price, because if silver rose that would mean that the basis for all of their power, the dollar, would become worth less and eventually worthless.

“Terrorists for the FBI:” How the FBI Uses Informants to Surveil and Entrap Americans

The FBI has built a massive network of spies to prevent another domestic terrorist attack. But are they busting plots—or leading them? That’s the question addressed by a year-long investigation in Mother Jones magazine.

It suggests FBI informants are not only busting terrorist plots, they are actually leading them so the FBI can later claim victories in the so-called “war on terror.”

In collaboration with the Investigative Reporting Program at the University of California, Berkeley, reporter Trevor Aaronson examined more than 500 terrorism-related cases and found that nearly half the prosecutions involved the use of informants, many of them incentivized by cash rewards up to $100,000 per assignment.

Mainstream Media Again Ddmitting Western Boots Are On The Ground In Libya Yet Delusion Still Rampant

Early in the conflict the British publication the Daily Mail covered the presence of 300+ SAS and SBS troops on the ground in Libya, however most of the mainstream media continued to pretend that there were no Western troops present.

Despite the complete lack of journalistic integrity involved in pushing such a false narrative, the Western media has had no problem acting like the Libyan rebels are acting alone.

However, the Daily Mail has, yet again, revealed that this is far from reality and has flippantly revealed that there are indeed SAS (British Special Forces) troops in Libya participating in the uprising against Muammar al-Gaddafi.

United States To Steal At Least $1 Billion From The Libyan People With The Help Of The United Nations

The criminal globalists are at it yet again! Under the guise of humanitarian aid, hundreds of millions of dollars are to be pilfered from the Libyan people with the help of the illegitimate, unaccountable body known as the United Nations.

Thierry Meyssan of the Voltaire Network has revealed this in an article entitled, “Caught Red-Handed: Washington tried to snatch $1.5 billion to pay its NTC employees” published earlier this month.

Unfortunately, this is no longer a manner of Washington simply attempting to steal these funds, as today the Chinese news agency Xinhua has reported that according to a U.S. diplomat, the U.N. is going to release $1.5 billion in Libyan assets.

Is The CIA-Mossad-MI6 Using Hollywood To Prepare Us For A Plague?

On March 4, 2001 the pilot episode of The Lone Gunmen TV series aired. The story was of a commercial airline being electronically hijacked to be crashed into the World Trade Center in order to provoke an invasion of Afghanistan…they were given the outline for that particular show by the CIA.

On Friday September 9th Hollywood will release the movie Contagion about the CDC and a new Bird flu plague.

All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

“Trust in journalists depends on accuracy,
fairness and a readiness to acknowledge
mistakes and apologize for them,journalists
should represent the governed, those without
power, those without information – and that
is no route to popularity with those who wield
power.” – Peter Cole, London Daily Mail.

When journalists report propaganda instead of the truth,
the consequences can be catastrophic
