United Nations to apply "responsibility to protect" doctrine to force international aid into Myanmar Petition

As you're certianly aware, there was a vicious and devastating cyclone in Burma last week.

Burma is 'ruled' by a psychopathic dictatorship - the extent of that psychopathology is evident in that the regime decided that while 100,000 of the country's population is either dead or missing, there should be held a referendum on keeping said regime in power.... good timing... not.

The Unitied Nations has a commitment to helping countries in crisis when those countries' administrations cannot or will not. Burma is a case of will not, as the administration will not provide Visas for aid workers and has limited aid to the country to very few drops of aid. Up until 5 days after the cyclone, only ONE transport of aid had been allowed into the country. One.

I have attached a petition directed to the United Nations. This petition directs the UN to act on its own resolutions and override the current whims of the Burmese government to allow aid and aid workers to enter the country.

Please sign this petition. The UN must know that the international community does not support genocide by starvation and disease.

Many Thanks


Man Caves!

My partner/spouse/boyfriend/AIP and I have been together for about 11 and a half years. He lives in a condo and I in a house; we're three blocks from each other. He sleeps here most nights but a couple times a week, he stays at the condo.

Why? Because we both know a man needs a cave.

We often tour open houses and I am regularly amazed at the homes some men must live in. It isn't the house so much, but the 'decorating' of said home, which in many cases unquestionably showcases who is the boss via endless pink paint and cabage-rose counterpanes and valences (which are gross dustcatchers anyway).

What man can retain his masculinity living in that kind of environment? It's no wonder there is almost always a dank, dusty, overflowing garage attached to such homes - the de facto cave.

As I'm a big ol' curmudgeon, I think that when a woman eradicates absolutely everything manly in the home she shares with her male partner/spouse, she is stating, without speaking, that she really would prefer her man not be in the home at all, but that's me and my weird perspective.

But seriously, no man - not even the gayest of the gay - thinks cabage roses are nice on anything. If a house looks like that it's because, when he's asked to comment on the decorating and paint choices, the guy hauls out the "yes dear," code for "Whatever, I'm totally not listening or interested. Where are the garage keys."

I laughed out loud at this article because it is true, true, true. A man needs a cave. Aparently the 'cave' in this story - a nasty, musty, bug and varmit-infested place on a swampy river is a very popular hangout for local men and a source of consternation for their wives/girlfriends, who don't get the 'cave' concept.

My man and I have the perfect relationship; he as a cave (which is not musty or smelly but sure is full of computer games...) and we have a house that is ours but has some man space inside and out, in the form of a crooked one-car garage.

Ask around girls: ask your guy friends, or your spouse if you dare, about the cave.

A Country of Stupid People, By Design?

One way to keep your population under control is to keep them uneducated, stupid and simply not able to ask questions.

That process is also a great way to make sure you always have enough drones for your army... being stupid does not lead to great jobs. The army, however, will look after you, your wife/husband and your kids, even when you're killed in some illegal war.

Keeping people stupid also limits how much they understand of what they hear on the news and also limits how much the really know about anything outside their own neighbourhood, which is to say world affairs are way, way, way above their comprehension.

Yes, I'm talking about the USA in case there's any question.

Your Client List Could Kill You... if you're A DC Madam

One of the risks of working in Washington, especially if you're female, or a male who sleeps with other males, is getting an ear full of state secrets from lovers who's lips are loose when they're relaxed.

For years, Deborah Jeane Palfrey had been operating large, successful 'escort' agency with a client list that read like - no probably was - the roll call of the entire US congress, senate and yes, white house; Mr. Cheney for one....

Here's a link to four years of phone records, provided by Palfrey.

Suffice to say, Ms. Palfrey and her staff were the keepers of many, many secrets.

All's well until a person goes public and threatens to expose those secrets, which Ms. Palfrey was set to do, except that she was murdered a week before she was set to testify.

The lovely and always complicit US news media - and the Canadian and British media too - all reported Ms. Palfrey's death was a suicide, but that is a lie.

See, another cohort of Palfrey's had also been murdered not many months prior - her death also made to look like a suicide. She knew something similar was in store for herself.

Ms. Palfrey had recently been interviewed on her upcoming trial and she made it very clear to all those who interviewed her that she had absolutely no reason for suicide - see, a few non-mainstream journalists were making sure Palfrey had the opportunity to state she knew her colleague's death had been set up as a suicide. She also said if she turned up dead herself, that the death should be investigated.

Well, lately, Ms. Palfrey was found hanging by her neck in a shed on her mother's property.

Two seconds of investigation lead certainly to the impossibility of her death being a suicide: one, she would have had to climb onto the roof of said shed in order to rig up the hanging apparatus and two, the shed was on her mother's property, not far from her mother's house. Palfrey no longer lived at home, so choosing such a location is bizarre at best. Lastly, women rarely - very rarely - ever hang themselves.

So why was Ms. Palfrey "removed?" She was about to expose the planning and forethought that went into the destruction of the world trade centres and she was about to name names.

Here's the article from Prison Nation. There are other links here for those who think the US government would never do anything like killing someone to keep them quiet.... hahahaahaha...

9/11 Conspiracy Connection To DC Madam Murder

Former NSA analyst and Navy intelligence officer Wayne Madsen tells the The Alex Jones Show that one of the key motives behind the DC Madam's murder may have been the information her call girls picked up from Washington's top brass concerning foreknowledge and government complicity in the 9/11 attacks.

Madsen also connected another suspicious death - that of former CIA agent Roland Carnaby who was gunned down by Houston police last week - to another individual who was involved in both the 9/11 cover-up and the D.C. Madam scandal, disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

Noting that Palfrey and her defense team had tried to invoke the Classified Information Procedures Act in the U.S. District Court in Washington, which is only used when classified information or the names of people who are intelligence officers needs to be discussed, Madsen said Palfrey, "Had information which could have a bearing on the 9/11 attacks that some of her employees may have picked up information beforehand that would have been very useful to the 9/11 investigation."

Madsen added that most of Palfrey's call girls had been active around the area of McLean Virginia, which is where the CIA and other intelligence agencies are based and where Dick Cheney lived at the time.

Host Alex Jones recalled that during interviews Palfrey had told him that her escort service was in fact being used as an intelligence operation to gather intelligence on individuals who used the service, particularly those connected to the military.

Madsen, who spoke personally to Palfrey on numerous occasions, recalls one conversation at dinner about a month a go with Palfrey and her asset forfeiture lawyer where Palfrey told him, 'I have information that would have been of great interest to the 9/11 Commission - there's information that they have (her call girls) that would have been very important for the 9/11 Commission to know having to do with intelligence they picked up about 9/11 before it happened'.

The former NSA official noted that some of Palfrey's call girls were being chauffeured by Sherlington Limousines to poker parties attended by former CIA director and co-chair of the Joint 9/11 Intelligence Inquiry Porter Goss. One of the reasons cited for Goss' abrupt resignation in May 2006 was his alleged involvement in a prostitution scandal where lobbyists were holding parties for GOP lawmakers that featured hookers and gambling at the Watergate Hotel in D.C.

On the morning of 9/11, Goss was having breakfast with the head of Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) General Mahmoud Ahmad, the man who ordered a wire transfer of $100,000 to alleged lead hijacker Mohammed Atta.

Deborah Jeane Palfrey.

In addition, Madsen pointed out that Jack Abramoff, who was also connected to the DC Madam scandal, allowed at least two of the 9/11 hijackers to use one of his casino boats in the days before 9/11, and this is what Palfrey was probably referring to when she spoke about her call girls picking up information about 9/11 before it happened.

"There's the link, when you've got Abramoff and you had two of those hijackers on his casino boat a few days before 9/11 - I just wonder if that's what Jeane was talking about," said Madsen, "Because now I'm looking at this crazy incident in Houston with Roland Carnaby, a retired CIA guy who was still contracted to the CIA, being gunned down in broad daylight by the Houston police department - now I've been told by Agency sources in Houston that one of the people he was looking at was Abramhoff and the casino boats - so here you've got two people in the same week, looks like they were both assassinated in broad daylight," he concluded.

Many readers will recall that Newsweek reported that military brass in Washington received a warning the night before the 9/11 attacks which led to a September 11 flight being cancelled. "NEWSWEEK has learned that while U.S. intelligence received no specific warning, the state of alert had been high during the past two weeks, and a particularly urgent warning may have been received the night before the attacks, causing some top Pentagon brass to cancel a trip. Why that same information was not available to the 266 people who died aboard the four hijacked commercial aircraft may become a hot topic on the Hill," according to the September 13 2001 issue.

The connection to 9/11 is tantalizing and provides a key motive for why numerous power brokers would have wanted Palfrey to be shut up for good before she had the opportunity to release information in court that her call girls picked up about 9/11 pointing to foreknowledge and government complicity in the attacks.
