ISS crew sends holiday greetings from space

The International Space Station sent their holiday greeting travelling at 17,500mph just outside the earth’s atmosphere. It does’nt seem like they are moving fast but in that short space they could of gone past the UK.

The ISS Expedition 26 Commander Scott Kelly of NASA and Flight Engineers Cady Coleman of NASA and Paolo Nespoli of the European Space Agency offered Christmas and New Year’s greetings to all people on Earth from the orbital outpost on Dec. 21 as they flew 224 statute miles above. Kelly, Coleman and Nespoli are part of the six-person crew that includes Russian cosmonauts Dmitry Kondratyev, Alexander Kaleri and Oleg Skripochka.


Ron Paul disclose how the Federal Reserve ruined the dollar

Congressman Ron Paul explains how the federal reserve have systematically destroyed the dollar and have manipulated the economy. With the failure of the fed over the past couple of years more and more people are listening to what Ron Paul is saying and realising he is making way more sense than how things are currently being done. One of the surprising and enlightening things about Congressman Ron Paul is that he have been saying these exact things since he first started his political career. On 26 August1988 he did a interview that sounds very similar to the one he had on Freedom watch on the 21st December 2010. That is over twenty years ago and he is still saying the same things, Ron Paul has to be the most consistent politician of our time.

During December and January our site will undergo some changes. Normal posting will resume in February 2011

We also changed the layout of the site but that might also be the reason Google News kicked us from their system. Hopefully they will be able to fix that.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New year


Ron Paul on Fed's future,monetary policy and Wikileaks

Ron Paul was appointed to the House subcommittee on Monetary Policy. Ron Paul has always been a bit of a loner in the Republican party, many thought his policy beliefs are a bit out there, he even received the nick name Dr. No for continually voting no to the things everyone else seemed to vote yes for. Ron also wrote a book End the Fed, is a strong believer in the constitution and that the government have too much power. So it came as a bit of a surprise that he have been selected to bee on the committee that is there to regulate the Fed.

CNN did a interview with Ron Paul but even before the interview started they tried to discredit him by getting former vice chairmen of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System who states that Ron Paul’s theories are ‘worrying’. Ron Paul was interrupted numerous times during the interview – especially when the anchor, Suzanne Malveaux, did not get the answer she hoped for.  When Suzanne started asking about Wikileaks Ron Paul clearly becomes frustrated with her constant interruptions and sudden change of topic.

During the interview Ron Paul states that the Federal reserve will end itself long before he would ever be able to end it. There was also the topic of Wikileaks about how it put the economy and jobs ‘in danger’ Ron Paul replies that it’s just a excuse to turn of the internet.

Ron Paul : This Is A Deliberate Attempt To Close Down The Internet!

This is not the first time CNN have gone into a interview determined to make the person look bad. One of those examples are Julian Assange who would not stand for it and walked out during the interview refusing to answer their line of questioning.

Here is another interview by CNBC’s anchor Maria Bartiromo with Ron Paul, this is how interview should be held. She only gives necessary information ask straight forward questions and give Ron time to answer. During the interview Ron gives a clear image of what is wrong with the currency and that to bring in competing currency will end the Feds control on the economy.

US Air Force blocks news websites because of Wikileaks cables

The United States Air Force blocked all their personnel from viewing the New York Times and most other popular news sites and sites that leaked the Wikileaks cables or posted them.

A few days ago the military warned that their personnel should not read leaked cables but now they went further and blocked the sites on military computers.

Military personnel can still access the cables from non military computers but they were already warned not to.

Julian Assange gets bail

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was granted bail today after a hearing at Westminster magistrate’s court in London after he was arrested on December the 7th as a result of Sweden accusing him of raping two woman, one of the woman being closely connected to the CIA. The case is looking made up before the trail.

Assange was granted bail on condition that he finds a permanent UK address and he must be electronically tagged. He will also be under travel restrictions and curfews.

No charges were laid against the political prisoner yet, he was held only for questioning thus far apart from the sexual offenses in Sweden. The arrest was mostly speculated to be under talks with the US government to find Assange guilty of something at all costs in order for the establishment to figure out their next move which will most probably be what they want, to extradite him.

Sudanese police brutally beats woman as she screams while bystanders laugh

Sudanese police got caught on video beating a woman so hard she started shouting for her mother. In the primitave country of Sudan this is nothing new but as the video spreads online people are angry that something like this is happening in the African country.

You can see when the one guy hits her in the face it looks like she lost her strength there. The Muslim country of Sudan is also no newcomer to human rights abuse.

Gay couple in Christian hotel was a setup

It was revealed that the gay couple trying to sue the Christian couple from Cornwall for their “no unmarried people in one bed” policy was a setup. The two gays Martyn Hall and Steven Preddy now want £5,000 in damages from Peter and Hazelmary Bull, they claimed the couple discriminated against them.

Peter and Hazelmary run the Chymorvah Private Hotel in Cornwall and they deny the attack. The court heard that the entire booking by Pretty and Martyn was a setup.

The Christian couple has backup however, they have their legal fees funded by the Christian Institute whereas Martyn and Steven also has legal sponsorship from the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

The ruling will show exactly where Christian businesses stand in a ever threatening British society where religious freedom has to stand down to 1% of the population.

Google/Youtube introduces "YouTube Trends"

Google introduced “Youtube Trends” today. Keeping up with the latest Youtube “fads” are sometimes impossible considering the massive amounts of video uploaded daily.

Google said about the trends “Sometimes waiting for popular new videos to hit your inbox / chat window / wall / feed / mobile / pager / two-way radio can be frustrating. Sometimes keeping up with the latest YouTube fad can be hard to do. Sometimes you want to know more about what’s happening from where it’s happening. Sometimes you just need something to get through the afternoon. ”

So they introduced Youtube Trends a “destination for daily insight into the zeitgeist of the world’s largest video site.”

“The idea for YouTube Trends started with our desire to find new ways of identifying the viral and newsworthy content people love to share and packaging it in an easy to digest format. With over 35 hours of video now uploaded to YouTube every minute, we wanted one place to distill the videos people were sharing and discussing with their friends as well as understand what YouTube could teach us about our culture and current events.”

Japanese go sky-diving with Google Earth

Apart from the fact that the Japanese are sometimes weird people and that the rest of the world might take another 2000 years to fully understand them, they do come up with briliant ideas.

One of those is sky diving on Google Earth. Who would of thought it could be done but the Japanese?

Taking a projector, popcorn and Google Earth they did it, sky-diving on Google Earth.

Hugh Jackman makes spectacular entry, receives medical attention

Hugh Jackman had to receive medical treatment after a stunt went wrong at the Sydney Opera House. The filming was part of the Oprah Winfrey show where Hugh Jackman was supposed to make a spectacular entrance. Unfortunately it was spectacular but not quite a entrance after he hit the wall of the stage at around 80km/h causing something to cut his eye.

While dangling above the stage the only thing he requested was a tissue.

What fascism looks like: UK police drag disabled man out of wheelchair across concrete

London, United Kingdom – A disabled man was dragged over a road after being plucked from his wheelchair by British police during a protest. The man claims he can not use his own wheelchair and needs assistance to use it.

The UK police are well known for killing innocent bystanders such as the case in 2009 when a man was walking through a protesting crowd on his way home,  but in recent days they have gone from using police brutality to being just plain brutal.

Police say that the man has not laid a complaint but the UK police as usual is not easily identifiable because they cover their faces and hide their badges and they also usually refuse to identify themselves during these brutal police crackdowns.

Michelle Obama: childhood obesity is a national security threat

Michelle Obama, America’s first lady said on Monday that childhood obesity is now a national security threat as she signed in “Health, Hunger-Free Kids act of 2010”. She also said it is not only the responsibility of parents to make sure their kids are fed.

The reason she said that obese children are a security threat is because it makes them “unqualified for military service”. Is America that desperate for new soldiers that a food program and act has to be introduced for national security measures?

“Childhood obesity isn’t just a public health threat, it’s not just an economic threat, it’s a national security threat as well.” Michelle Obama said

She obviously said some rational things and made points which make sense but of all the things, the “unqualified for military service” quote is most probably what stood out the most for many.

The truth is that children in the US are obese and becoming fatter by the day, they need some kind of help.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides – Movie trailer released

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is the fourth instalment or rather a spin off of Pirates of the Caribbean series. At long last we get to see more of Pirates of the Caribbean one of the most noticeable changes is the director. All of the films from the series so far have been directed by Gore Verbinski this one was directed by Rob Marshall who also directed the popular children’s film G-Force. Jack Sparrow is the main character and fortunately for them Johnny Depp agreed to play Jack Sparrow once again. Almost all the characters that have returned for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is the same actors from the previous three films.

Captain Jack Sparrow is on a mission to find the fountain of youth, he crosses paths with Angelica (played by Penelope Cruz) a woman from his past. He cannot decide if it’s a good thing or not to have met up with her. That’s at least until she is forces him unto the Queen Anne’s Revenge Blackbeard’s (played by Ian McShane) ship. Blackbeard is also in search of the fountain of youth to regain his youth once again. Jack is stuck knowing not who to fear more Blackbeard or the woman of his past.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)

Unfortunately for us we will have to wait until 20 May 2011 for the release of the film but looking at the trailer it will be worth the wait.

  10. #2010disappointments is down, is Anonymous responsible?

Amazon in the United Kingdom is down, not only for those browsing in the UK but from any location. The website seems to be under a DDoS attack. We have no information if Anonymous is responsible but they might be behind it.

At this point no one knows. Anonymous took revenge last week against sites that kicked Wikileaks from using certain providers of services or providers that refused Wikileaks access to their services and payment systems. Visa, Mastercard, Paypal and a few others got attacked.

It was said that Amazon was also a target and a lot of people believed that Anonymous failed in taking down Amazon but they never did try to take down according to insiders and a press release from a Twitter account that appeared to be connected to Anonymous.

So, is Anonymous behind what looks like an attack on

Update: in Germany is down as well.

Update: in France is down.

Update: is down, no Amazon for Italy tonight.

Update:, and the rest are back online.

Update: Thus far Anonymous or those that appear to be part of Anonymous says they are not behind the attacks or downtime of the Amazon servers.

Update: It was not Anonymous, It was not attacks either it was Amazon’s hardware that malfunctioned.

Wikileaks: American company DunCorp held boy rape party for police trainees

Dancing Afghan boys is a pretty description for boy slaves that’s dressed up in women’s clothes with make-up on made to dance for men who then ‘buy’ them for the night for sex. In short: dressed up paedophilia. They are called Bacha Bazi translated ‘boy play’ and is a common tradition in Afghanistan that have been practised for hundreds of years. It used to be held in public places until western society showed their disapproval in the 1800’s the practice went undercover. When the Taliban came with Sharia Law – the practice was abolished according to Sharia Law and it could only be found in Northern Afghanistan done by powerful men in private that was until the Taliban was removed. The practice is flourishing once again more openly done in over 100 years. It is explained as something of a status if a man have the opportunity to own a Bacha Bazi boy, he is deemed powerful and rich.

Wikileaks say the USA government have been funding this practice inadvertently. A company called DynCorp is being paid by the USA government to train the Afghani police force, which they are doing. But they have held an Bacha Bazi party for the men they are training – paying for it – that includes bringing in drugs (type not named) and paying the little boy’s pimps. What DunCorp did was take a bunch of high trainees and gave them a bunch of boys to molest. This practice is also against the law, so not only are they using American citizens to pay for a ‘party’ featuring this barbaric practice they are breaking the Afghan law. How this information got about was with Afghanistan’s interior minister, Atmar, asked America too cover up that such a party took place because a reporter was going to uncover it and he was afraid of what that would do to all the ‘good’ work DynCorp has done. Their advise just let it go, it’s a minor thing nothing to worry about if no one makes a fuss it will just go away. The reporter wrote a article on the party and mentioned it was held and funded by DynCorp but he made the Bacha Bazi sound like a male traditional entertainer. No mention of the fact that the entertainer is a boy just before puberty and that he is basically a slave and so it just blew over, no one really took notice.

Here is a part of a documentary that was on Frontline about the Dancing boys of Afghanistan. It gives a person a complete picture of how depraved the practice truly is.

This is what American taxpayers have become party to, it would not have been revealed to the extent it has, if not for Wikileaks.

North Korea: We will punish provocative forces and invaders cruelly

North Korea said that the Korean Peninsula has been “escalted into the situation of full scale war” .

They blamed the United States and South Korea for being “pro war fanatics of the South”. North Korea’s propaganda machine said “Our military and all the citizens are ready to deal with all, whether it is limited or full-scale war”.

The newest statement from North Korea reads “It is crystal-clear that the provocations will expand to the full-scale war not confined to limited war if the South fires at us with aircraft, war ships and missiles and the U.S. intervene in war with its up-to-date weapons,”

“It will not remain as limited to the Korean Peninsula if the all-out war breaks out on this soil,”

“We will punish provocative forces and invaders cruelly and protect the dignity and security of the people gloriously.”
