These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. ~~~ Thomas Paine, 1776

The Entrapment Dividend: Setting A Few Knuckleheads Up, And Knocking The Rest Of Us Down

The threat of homegrown terrorism is now so grave that we must take extraordinary action to protect ourselves.

This grave threat is personified by the Toledo Terror Cell and the Rockford Mall Bomber, who are presented to the nation by the likes of FOX News and the Counterterrorism blog as the face of the homegrown terror threat. They are portrayed as such for a reason: they are the most visible "successes" of the FBI and its JTTFs. However:

Both of these cases were the work of admitted agents provocateur. In both cases the agents provocateur were entrapment specialists working for the FBI. In neither case -- according to the government -- was the public in any danger.

But the threat posed by these terrorists and others of their ilk is so serious that we must shred some of our remaining civil liberties in order to protect ourselves, even though they are now in prison for having taken part in the plotting of crimes they never could have accomplished, and never would have thought of on their own.

Federal Court OKs Treason, Crimes Against Humanity

The traitors and war criminals who have taken over our government are dancing with joy this evening, and rightly so. Earlier today, a Federal Court of Appeals in Washington granted them legal immunity for every criminal action they have taken while in office.

The ruling, made by a panel of three judges in dismissing an appeal in the case of Valerie Plame, absolves government officials of individual accountability for any actions taken in an official capacity, regardless of whether those actions violated federal law or jeopardized national security. In effect, it legalizes treason.

Ludicrouser And Ludicrouser: The Alleged Liquid Bombing Plot, Revisited Again

In the UK, the prosecution has laid out its case against the alleged terrorist plotters who have come to be known as the "Liquid Bombers", and it's much different than the stories that were leaked just after the suspects were arrested, two years ago this weekend.

Those stories sparked considerable interest at my blog, where chemistry is no barrier. And the previous leaked versions of the alleged plot were utterly preposterous, as I've pointed out several times since they were leaked.

But the new alleged plot -- the one testified to in court by British authorities -- is even more ludicrous than the alleged plots in any of the previously leaked stories.

Guilty by association: wutz up w 911blogger?

A friend of mine was part of a group who recently were banned en masse from posting at, or even in some cases, visiting, the website and forums of one of the better known "truth" sites, 911.blogger

Their offense? Being members of another truth site, that I enjoy visiting myself, the WTC Demolition Blog or

After studying this matter, it seems to be related to certain members (including the management) of wtcdemo's opposition to the postings of one or two particular members of the 911blogger forum and his /their insistence on holding to a certain tack of 9/11 truth that agrees with many of the precepts of the OCT. A few of these certain 911blogger-blogger's core arguments:

A) there certainly were Arab hijackers
B) nobody has any evidence there were pre-planted explosives in the WTC
C) Neither Larry Silverstein, nor any Israeli group(Drunk need be considered suspects

It seems that the wtcdemo crew found this tack unsavory and were vocal in their disagreement with these opinions.

It's interesting that one of the last comments posted by any of the 'wtcdemo' crew was in response to a challenge by one of said members to name someone involved with planting the explosives:

"And I'm glad you asked. The arrow of suspicion clearly points at Larry Silverstein, Jerome Hauer and the men of Urban Moving Systems."

Is the timing of this post and the subsequent mass bannings more than coincidence?

Not Necessarily the News: Russia to 'neutralise' US missile defence

For some reason the 'ahem' mainstream sites aren't talking about this much,
Russia's military is ready to "neutralise" any threat to its nuclear deterrent from US missile defence sites in Europe, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Kislyak said Monday, according to Interfax news agency.

"If we see the development of systems that could reduce our deterrent potential, our military will have to take steps to neutralise the threat," Kislyak was quoted as saying at a briefing in Moscow.

He did not specify the steps that would be taken, saying "this will be decided by military specialists."

"We would prefer not to have to do this," he added.

Kislyak said US proposals to ease Russian concerns about the missile shield, which Washington claims is aimed at countering possible threats from states such as Iran, remained in doubt.

Raw Story Article

My take on missile defense was always that it could be relatively easily defeated by launching a wave or two of decoys, then launch your real missiles amidst another batch of decoys.

Here's the problem with missile defense (assuming it even works as intended) - it costs far, far more for this defense than it does for the offense. The United States spends more than the rest of the world combined on "defense" yet Americans are still less safe now than they've been in the past. Wouldn't it be a lot less expensive to just be nice to people?
