The New Face of Big Brother?

MIT’s Dr. Daniel Nocera, Ph.D., describes

a revolutionary new photosynthesis-like process
 for storing solar energy
hydrogen production from H2O.

The process utilizes just one gallon of water
 which reconstitutes the H2O for daily recycled use…

yielding a totally off-grid, closed system
that powers an entire house AND
recharges your electric car, too!

Murder, Spies & Voting Lies (The Clint Curtis Story) (2008) - (68 min./total video)

One way or the other, make sure that you

(and everyone else that you know)

see this extremely important documentary!

[Info about the documentary from ]:

  "After the Florida Election in 2000, one man found himself on the wrong end of a smoking gun."

That's the tagline for Murder, Spies & Voting Lies: The Clint Curtis Story,

the brand-new documentary film by Patty Sharaf which has now finally been released!

Kansas City Star is among the first out of the box to review the film,

calling it a "Must See!"

and declaring that it "plays like a high-tension political thriller."

The terrifying feature-length documentary, shot in high-definition video, details, for the first time,

the complete Clint Curtis/Tom Feeney/Yang Enterprises vote-rigging scandal,

in all of its, yes, sometimes very gory detail.

It also tells a tale of the media,

as it details my attempts to tell the story over the last four years,

to a corrupt, detached, and too-often frightened corporate media.

The BRAD BLOG broke the Curtis story originally in late 2004,

and we've been investigating and reporting on it ever since.

Product Description:

Journalist Brad Friedman ( pokes at the seamy side of American democracy in this beautifully filmed documentary.

Whistle-blower Clint Curtis, a computer programmer by trade,

sticks to his claims that he was asked to make vote-rigging software for electronic voting machines

by former US Congressman and loyal Bushite,Tom Feeney (R-Fl).

Tension rises when the vote-rigging scandal dips into a murder mystery.

While Clint Curtis testified to a Congressional Judiciary committee caucus in December 2004,

and passed a lie detector test shortly thereafter, mainstream media has paid scant attention to his story.

Independent filmaking is filling that gap.

Memorable personalities emerge in the documentary:

attorney Bob Fitrakis who sued for a recount in Ohio,

social critic Gore Vidal, former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney,

and researcher Richard Hayes Phillips.

Security expert Harri Hursti explains the shocking internal shortcomings of problem voting machines.

Not to be missed.

GASLAND (2010)  -  - “The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology of "fracking" or hydraulic fracturing has unlocked a "Saudi Arabia of natural gas" just beneath us. But is fracking safe? When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND. Part verite travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown, part showdown."

Zeitgeist: The Movie (2007)   -   [NOTE: The first four minutes of the film is blank/dark-screen audio narration only!]  -  Extremely controversial documentary split into three parts.  The first part discredits religion, particularly Christianity through showing the “copycat” similarities of major religious figures.  The second part describes the problems with what was told to us about the events surrounding Sept. 11 and provides evidence to show who the writers believe really was responsible for the attacks.  The third part deals with banks and resulting theories of World leaders plans to create one world bank. Also touches on the people responsible for the Great Depression, and how wars have been started under dubious circumstances. (Written by Anonymous)

Extreme Ice (2009)  -  
Extreme Ice focuses on climate change shown through time-lapse cameras set by internationally acclaimed photojournalist James Balog.  At exactly the half-way point through this 53-minute film, it dramatically exhibits the scientific "smoking gun" evidence of human-induced global warming. This was done through analysis of trapped (over a period of hundreds of thousands of years) atmospheric gas bubbles in Greenland's ice-core layers. The program's evidence not only conclusively proves the fact that our burning of fossil fuels is the major culprit in climate change, but also that the effects are increasing at an alarming and exponentially accelerating rate.

Secrets Beneath The Ice (2010)  -  -  Almost three miles of ice buries most of Antarctica, cloaking a continent half again as large as the United States. But when an Antarctic ice shelf the size of Manhattan collapsed in less than a month in 2002, it shocked scientists and raised the alarming possibility that Antarctica may be headed for a meltdown. Even a 10 percent loss of Antarctica's ice would cause catastrophic flooding of coastal cities unlike any seen before in human history. What are the chances of a widespread melt? "Secrets Beneath the Ice" explores whether Antarctica's climate past can offer clues to what may happen. NOVA follows a state-of-the-art expedition that is drilling three-quarters of a mile into the Antarctic seafloor. The drill is recovering rock cores that reveal intimate details of climate and fauna from a time in the distant past when the Earth was just a few degrees warmer than it is today. As researchers grapple with the harshest conditions on the planet, they discover astonishing new clues about Antarctica's past—clues that carry ominous implications for coastal cities around the globe.

Meet John Doe”...(And, Prescott Bush: His Foe)


If you haven’t seen the 1941 Frank Capra film, “Meet John Doe”

(starring Gary Cooper, Barbara Stanwyck and Walter Brennan), then you might want to check out this excellent online review of the film:


As the review notes:  “The film was intended to combat pro-Nazi Fascist forces present in America . . .”


Given the time period, it’s obvious that the premise of the film

was (maybe not so loosely) based on the real-life attempted Fascist/Nazi-supporter coup to take over America

by Prescott Bush (George W. Bush’s grandfather)

and his pro big business gang back in the 1930’s.

  Bush’s anti-American, treasonous attempt

is well-documented at the following URL.

  (Also below is an excerpt from that info.):


 "There was a scheme in the 30's and Prescott Bush was one of the leaders of this scheme,

an industrialist who admired fascism and thought that was a good idea -

to have a coup in the United States

along the lines of the coup they saw taking place in Italy and Germany," said Wolf,

referring to the testimony of Marine Corps Maj.-Gen. Smedley Butler,

who was approached by a wealthy and secretive group of industrialists and bankers,

including Prescott Bush - the current President's grandfather,

who asked him to command a 500,000 strong rogue army of veterans

that would help stage a coup to topple then President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.


A recent BBC radio report confirmed that there was an attempted coup led by Prescott Bush.


"Smedley Butler had been involved with violent regime change throughout his career,

but he was approached by these conspirators, including Prescott Bush,

and he outed them and he testified to Congress that they were planning a coup in the United States -

it's in the Congressional record," said Wolf,

adding that the coup was being bankrolled by German industrialist

and one of Hitler's chief financiers Fritz Thyssen.

Powers of Ten  -  - [Explanation from Astronomy Picture of the Day website (APOD) ]:

“How different does the universe look on small, medium, and large scales? The most famous short science film of its generation gives breathtaking comparisons. That film, Powers of Ten, originally created in the 1960s, has now been officially posted to YouTube and embedded above. Please click the above arrow to see the nine minute movie for yourself. From a picnic blanket near Chicago out past the Virgo Cluster of Galaxies, every ten seconds the film zooms out to show a square a factor of ten times larger on each side. The video then reverses, zooming back in a factor of ten every two seconds and ends up inside a single proton. The Powers of Ten sequence is actually based on the book Cosmic View by Kees Boeke in 1957, as is a similar but mostly animated film Cosmic Zoom that was also created in the late 1960s. The changing perspectives are so enthralling and educational that sections have been recreated using more modern computerized techniques, including the first few minutes of the movie Contact, and in a short digital video called The Known Universe created last year for the American Museum of Natural History. Ray and husband Charles Eames, the film's creators, were known as quite visionary spirits and even invented their own popular chair.”

on p.p. 54-55 of the Feb. 2011 issue

of Maximum PC magazine ( )]:


A recently isolated material

could advance displays, batteries,

solar cells, and computers beyond silicon

     In its sheet form, it’s the first two-dimensional, crystalline substance

that’s ever been isolated, it can be rolled into tubes

-- carbon nanotubes --

that behave as a single-dimension material,

and can even be made into a zero-dimensional ball.

These multidimensional properties allow for new research

and experiments down to a quantum physics level.

      ….  …the virtually clear substance;

about 98 percent of light passed through the layer.  ….

     ….  Two hundred times stronger than steel,

it’s possibly the lightest, strongest material ever discovered,

suitable for airplane parts an other

high-pressure, low-weights applications.

It conducts electricity with an extremely low resistance

-- faster than silicon --

making it suitable for many electronic applications.

     These traits, combined with graphene’s transparency,

could also make the material a key component

in building more functional lightweight OLED

[Organic Light-Emitting Diodes],

LCD, and touch-screen panels.

And with its large surface-to-volume ratio,

graphene in powder form could even improve batteries.

     graphene could be built into tiny transistors

that can move single electrons around

with electromagnetic forces.  ….

Theoretically, these transistors would be smaller,

consume less power, and yield much higher speeds than current silicon.  ….

     …you can expect to see the first commercial uses of graphene

in the next two to three years.

More ambitious usage will, of course, take decades to develop.

This said, some companies, such as Samsung,

are already testing 30-inch graphene-based display prototypes.

NSA’s Treasure Trove  -  The Quiet Zone was originally broadcast on the (up until then) popular weekly “Wired Science” PBS television show on Dec. 26, 2007.  Without any explanation or notice, that was the very last time “Wired Science” appeared on PBS.

The video segment is 10 minutes long.  While the entire video is well worth watching -- with the first half essentially covering radio astronomy, the most important part is the last half (beginning at about 6-1/2 minutes in) which exposes -- for the very first time for public view -- the NSA (National Security Agency) “Naval Security Group Activity” (land-locked) Sugar Grove, West Virginia, domestic “listening post” which covers the entire spectrum of electromagnetic communications.

During this last-half of the video, James Bamford -- author of three books on the NSA -- details some of the capabilities of the NSA’s Sugar Grove site.  While he particularly highlights the facility’s “domestic surveillance” capabilities (which, by the way, such use by the NSA is proscribed by law…in other words: illegal), he does not mention that it is a major part of NSA’sECHELON” program.

Predator’ Smart Camera Locks Onto, Tracks Anything … Mercilessly - (4-1/4 min. - YouTube audio/video) - (April 4, 2011 - by Charlie Sorrell- Wired) - Zdenek Kalal’s Predator object-tracking software is almost uncanny. Show anything to its all-seeing camera eye, and it will quickly learn to recognize it and then track it, whether it fades into the distance, hides amongst other similar objects or — in the case of faces turns sideways.

It really lives up to its name, reminding us of the Predator’s HUD-enhanced vision in the movie of the same name.

Kalal is a Ph.D. student at the University of Surrey in England, researching projects that make computers see. His Predator algorithm is both fast and powerful.

After telling it what to look for (by dragging a box over the onscreen image) the Predator gets to work. Within seconds it can recognize patterns, objects and faces and track them as they shrink, grow and rotate. When Kalal hides from the camera and holds up a sheet of paper with his photo among a patchwork of thumbnails, Predator picks his face out immediately.

Four minutes might seem like a long time in today’s attention-starved world, but you should watch Kalal’s demo video. It’s worth it just to see him scooting hyperactively around on his office chair.

Keep watching past the credits and you’ll see plenty of other uses, such as tracking individual animals for research, and chasing cars and people across multiple security cameras. It’s not hard to imagine more. -

The New American Century (2009) - (1 Hr & 34 Mins - This is the Complete Full Movie - YouTube audio/video) -

“THE NEW AMERICAN CENTURY explores the historical, philosophical and economic background that suggests a matrix for such events that is much closer to home than the so-called "Islamic terrorism".

The film provides solid evidence for the true reasons behind the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, whose unfolding is described in chilling detail in a document called "Project for the New American Century", published in the year 2,000, that seems to have served as the actual blueprint for such dramatic events.

As a follow-up to Inganno Globale, The New American Century presents the historical, philosophical, economical and political background -- some of which is totally unknown to the public -- that lend support to the accusation that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were in fact an inside-job.

"Historically accurate, narratively captivating, The New American Century is one of the best films about the facts behind the 9/11 attacks". -- Webster G. Tarpley

"The New American Century is a stunning film. It should be seen as widely as possible, in cinemas, bars, clubs, at meetings and, of course, through the internet. I'm sure the film will continue to be a source of debate and political education for many years." -- Ken Loach.

This film is astonishing, it goes in detail through the untold history of The Project for the New American Century with tons of archival footage and connects it right into the present. This film exposes how every major war in US history was based on a complete fraud with video of insiders themselves admitting it. This film shows how the first film theaters in the US were used over a hundred years ago to broadcast propaganda to rile the American people into the Spanish-American War. This film shows the white papers of the oil company Unocal which called for the creation of a pipeline through Afghanistan and how their exact needs were fulfilled through the US invasion of Afghanistan. This film shows how Halliburton under their "cost plus" exclusive contract with the US Government went on a mad dash spending spree akin to something out of the movie Brewster's Millions, yet instead of blowing $30 million they blew through BILLIONS by literally burning millions of dollars worth of hundred thousand dollar cars and trucks if they had so much as a flat tire. I have seen a ton of films, this film contains a massive amount of incredible footage I have never seen before anywhere, it is an historical documentary which exposes all the lies of the past so that you can understand the present. - This film is a must see”

From allergies to deadly disease, feeling the effects of climate change - (13-1/2 min. video - May 20, 2011 - by Laura LeBlanc - Need To Know/PBS)  - -  A rare but deadly fungal disease once occurring only in tropical climates has recently led to several deaths in the Pacific Northwest. Scientists believe that climate change may be to blame.

When doctors discovered that Trudy Rosler, a Canadian, had a fungus growing in her brain system, they were stumped. The fungus was previously only known to exist in the tropics. But because of climate change, it’s infecting people much farther north. Here in the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is already treating climate change as a serious health threat.

Need to Know’s medical correspondent Dr. Emily Senay examines how a warming climate is already affecting our health, from making allergies worse to affecting the spread of infectious diseases and pushing the extremes of killer weather.


Cracking the code: Defending against the superweapons of the 21st century cyberwar - (13 min. video - May 20, 2011 - by Erin Chapman and Win Rosenfeld - Need To Know/PBS) - - The threat of attack has been a growing concern to national security experts for some time. Imagine what would happen if a malicious hacker could take out a power grid or cause the meltdown of a nuclear plant. Critics of the administration’s cyber-security plan question whether it goes far enough to protect us from the next generation of cyber-superweapons — including one devastating computer virus, Stuxnet, that’s already been unleashed in a foreign country.

Is Alien Intrigue

Really a Soviet-Era Psyop?

(4 min. video)

(May 27, 2011 - By Hugh Hart - Wired)

Former Los Angeles Times Magazine reporter Annie Jacobsen

argues in a new book that Nazi Josef Mengele

went to Russia after World War II and, under Stalin’s direction,

surgically deformed children so they’d look like aliens.

According to Area 51: An Uncensored History of America’s Top Secret Military Base,

the Russians then supposedly built a craft in the shape of a flying saucer

and arranged for the “UFO” to crash in the Nevada desert

in order to create panic in the United States.

The book tells a gripping story

about the possible roots of alien intrigue,

but ABC’s Bill Weir didn’t buy it

during Thursday’s Nightline broadcast.

In the clip embedded above,

Weir blasts Jacobsen

for relying on an octogenarian

as a primary source for the weird story.

Origami: Between The Folds  -  (Video excerpts - Independent Lens/PBS)  - Origami may seem an unlikely medium for understanding and explaining the world. But around the globe, several fine artists and theoretical scientists are abandoning more conventional career paths to forge lives as modern-day paper folders. Through origami, these offbeat and provocative minds are reshaping ideas of creativity and revealing the relationship between art and science.

BETWEEN THE FOLDS chronicles 10 of their stories. Featuring interviews with and insights into the practice of these intrepid paper folders, the film opens with three of the world's foremost origami artists: a former sculptor in France who folds caricatures in paper rivaling the figures of Daumier and Picasso; a hyper-realist who walked away from a successful physics career to challenge the physics of a folded square instead; and an artisanal papermaker who folds impressionistic creations from the very same medium he makes from scratch.

The film then moves to less conventional artists, exploring concepts of minimalism, deconstruction, process and empiricism. Abstract artists emerge with a greater emphasis on concept, chopping at the fundamental roots of realism, which have long dominated traditional origami. The film also features advanced mathematicians and a remarkable scientist who received a MacArthur Genius Award for his computational origami research.  -

Hot Particles From Japan to Seattle Virtually Undetectable when Inhaled or Swallowed - (6-min. video - June 12, 2011 - by Fairewinds Associates)  -  Original estimates of xenon and krypton releases remain the same, but a TEPCO recalculation shows dramatic increases in the release of hot particles. This confirms the results of air filter monitoring by independent scientists. Fairewinds' Arnie Gundersen explains how hot particles may react in mammals while escaping traditional detection. Reports of a metallic taste in the mouth, such as those now being reported in Japan and on the west coast, are a telltale sign of radiation exposure.  -

Open Data: Rare Trove of Army Medical Photos Heads to Flickr - (March 17, 2009 - by Alexis Madrigal - Wired) - An Army archivist is undertaking a massive project to digitize and make public a unique collection of rare and sometimes startling military medical images, from the Civil War to Vietnam.

This previously unreported archive at the Army-run National Museum of Health and Medicine in Washington, D.C., contains 500,000 scans of unique images so far, with another 225,000 set to be digitized this year.

Mike Rhode, the museum’s head archivist, is working to make tens of thousands of those images, which have been buried in the museum’s archive, available on Flickr. Working after hours, his team has posted a curated selection of almost 800 photos on the service already.

"You pay taxes. These are your pictures," Rhode said. "You should be able to see them."  -

He wants to know if the original made it to the moon. HISTORY DETECTIVES Gwen Wright takes the case from there. She narrows the investigation to a man who calls himself John F. He sent a telegram to the artists confirming that he attached the chip to the leg of the lunar landing module that NASA left on the surface of the moon. Did he? Only John F. knows for sure.  -

Why Fukushima Can Happen Here: What the NRC and Nuclear Industry Don't Want You to Know - (52 min. - video) - (July 10, 2011 - by Fairewinds Associates) - The well-known safety flaws of Mark 1 Boiling Water Reactors have gained significant attention in the wake of the four reactor accidents at Fukushima, but a more insidious danger lurks. In this video nuclear engineers Arnie Gundersen and David Lochbaum discuss how the US regulators and regulatory process have left Americans unprotected. They walk, step-by-step, through the events of the Japanese meltdowns and consider how the knowledge gained from Fukushima applies to the nuclear industry worldwide. They discuss "points of vulnerability" in American plants, some of which have been unaddressed by the NRC for three decades. Finally, they concluded that an accident with the consequences of Fukushima could happen in the US.

With more radioactive Cesium in the Pilgrim Nuclear Plant's spent fuel pool than was released by Fukushima, Chernobyl, and all nuclear bomb testing combined, Gundersen and Lockbaum ask why there is not a single procedure in place to deal with a crisis in the fuel pool? These and more safety questions are discussed in this forum presented by the C-10 Foundation at the Boston Public Library.

He is perhaps best remembered for his UFO research. Hynek acted as scientific adviser to UFO studies undertaken by the U.S. Air Force under three consecutive names: Project Sign (1947-1949), Project Grudge (1949-1952), and Project Blue Book (1952 to 1969). For decades afterwards, he conducted his own independent UFO research, and is widely considered the father of the concept of scientific analysis of both reports and, especially, trace evidence purportedly left by UFOs.

UFO - Stanton T. Friedman IS Real! - (9-1/2 min. prelude - YouTube audio/video) - Stanton T. Friedman received BSc and MSc degrees in physics from the University of Chicago in 1955 and 1956. He was employed for 14 years as a nuclear physicist for such companies as GE, GM, Westinghouse, TRW Systems, Aerojet General Nucleonics, and McDonnell Douglas on such advanced, classified, eventually cancelled, projects as nuclear aircraft, fission and fusion rockets, and nuclear powerplants for space.

Since 1967 he has lectured on the topic "Flying Saucers ARE Real!" at more than 600 colleges and over 100 professional groups in 50 states, 9 provinces, 13 other countries. He has published more than 80 UFO papers and appeared on hundreds of radio and TV programs. He is the original civilian investigator of the Roswell Incident and co-authored "Crash at Corona: The Definitive Study of the Roswell Incident." TOP SECRET/MAJIC, his explosive book about the Majestic 12 group established in 1947 to deal with crashed saucers, was published in 1996 and is in its 6th printing. ….

He has provided written testimony to Congressional Hearings, appeared twice at the UN, and been a pioneer in many aspects of Ufology...

Stanton Friedman takes a clear-cut unambiguous stand that SOME UFOs are alien spacecraft, that the subject of flying saucers represents a Cosmic Watergate, that none of the anti-UFO arguments made by a variety of noisy negativists stand up to careful scrutiny, and that we are dealing with the biggest story of the past millennium: visits to Planet Earth by alien spacecraft and the successful coverup by governments of the best data: alien wreckage and bodies recovered in New Mexico, for 56 years. He has spent many weeks at a total of 20 document archives. Stan has successfully taken on many critics of flying saucers, Roswell, Majestic 12, including winning a debate at Oxford University.

Jon Stewart to Fox News: Making the Super-Rich Pay Taxes is "Class Warfare"? No, the War Is on the Poor - (11-1/2 min. - video/2-parts) - (August 19, 2011 - by Lauren Kelley - AlterNet)  - It seems like everyone in America read Warren Buffett's recent New York Times op-ed, in which he implored the government to stop giving tax breaks to the country's super-rich. As Jon Stewart pointed out last night, conservatives on Fox News deemed Buffett's treatise -- and the very notion of raising taxes for the wealthiest Americans -- a declaration of "class warfare" against the rich. Oh please.

Doing what he does best, Stewart completely destroyed that line of reasoning, pointing out, among other things, that income inequality in the U.S. is worse than in many developing nations. Also: "Raising the income tax rate on the top 2% of earners would generate $700 billion. But taking half of everything the bottom 50% have in this country would do the same." YUP.

But there's so much more in this segment. It's really a fantastic spotlight on the class war that really is being waged -- not against the rich, but against the poor. I urge you to watch the whole thing (in two parts) here:  -

Crop Circles: The Hidden Truth - (Trailer) - (4 min. - YouTube audio/video) - (w/additional 6-parts Total time: 60 min.) - Richard D. Hall's no nonsense expose of the facts behind the modern day crop circle phenomenon cuts through the pseudo science, the rumours and the disinformation leaving the viewer with a clear picture of the true situation. The film features the most objective British crop circle researchers in the business: David Cayton, Robert Hulse and Roy Dutton. Until now, their work has been kept largely out of the public eye, and is unleashed in this extremely telling and poignant documentary which leaves no stone unturned. The evidence presented will leave you in no doubt that there are two entirely exclusive instigators of the modern day crop circle phenomenon, one of which is non human. The results are chilling and could change your view of the way you see the world's media organisations and the powers that control them.  -

The NRC and the nuclear industry are using a flawed cost benefit computer code that underestimates the value of human life and minimize property damages after an accident, which has the effect of justifying continued operation of reactors without safety modifications.  -

Brain Activity (Real-life Images) Reproduced via fMRI - (30 seconds - YouTube video) - (In the video…): The left clip is a segment of the movie that the subject viewed while in the magnet. The right clip shows the reconstruction of this movie from brain activity measured using fMRI. The reconstruction was obtained using only each subject's brain activity and a library of 18 million seconds of random YouTube video. (In brief, the algorithm processes each of the 18 million clips through the brain model, and identifies the clips that would have produced brain activity as similar to the measured brain activity as possible. The clips used to fit the model, those used to test the model and those used to reconstruct the stimulus were entirely separate.) Brain activity was sampled every one second, and each one-second section of the viewed movie was reconstructed separately.  -

Hemp for Victory - Entire Film - US Government asks farmers to grow it - (14 min. - YouTube audio/video) - Produced by the US Government in 1942...Interesting to learn that Dupont Chemical funded the anti- hemp / marijuana effort. This is because they had patents on new synthetic fibers and Hemp had a new machine that would put them out of business if hemp were to be used for clothes. Dupont also sold - and still does many of the chemicals to wood pulp producers... so we continue to cut down forests... when Hemp could save millions of trees, be used as an alternative bio fuel and the US could easily grow enough hemp to eliminate the need for oil... so Big oil does not want hemp legal either. Neither do the drug companies... they can't patent it. They would rather keep selling you their drugs. By keeping it illegal the lawyers, courts etc... also make a buck. You can only get high from the female flower - nobody has ever died from smoking a joint. Of course the alcohol and tobacco companies would prefer to keep their monopoly as well. So we have all the BIG Corporate players... against legalizing it. Yet if it were legalized - we would solve many issues and have a multi-billion dollar hemp economy as it can be used for 1000's of products.

Jon Stewart Rips Into GOP Hypocrisy on 99%ers: Claim to Love Country, Hate its People - (9 min. - video) - (Oct. 19, 2011- By Sarah Seltzer - AlterNet) - Hey Republicans, for years you said, "take our country back," said Jon Stewart on his show last night. And now that people are doing that by joining the "occupy" movement, you're saying no, not cool?

He then segued into a classic Daily Show montage o' hypocrisy, with killer soundbites of GOPers saying over and over again how disturbed they are by The 99% movement "pitting Americans against each other" juxtaposed with those same politicians attacking Americans: unions, the poor, gay people, and more.

"On a venn diagram the group of Americans Republicans say it's okay to pit Americans against" overlaps perfectly with those who don't vote Republican, Stewart said. "They love America so much, but hate three-quarters of its people," he said.

Clearing the Smoke: The Science of Cannabis - (57 min. - YouTube audio/video) - (August, 2011 - KUFM-TV/PBS) - Informative  documentaryClearing the Smoke,” reveals how cannabis acts on the brain and in the body to treat nausea, pain, epilepsy and potentially even cancer.

Extensive interviews with patients, doctors, researchers and skeptics detail the promises and the limitations of medicinal cannabis. Even though the video has an American perspective, marijuana use is illegal throughout many countries of the world for reasons that are not clear.

This video is important because it mainly investigates the scientific basis underlying the medical benefits of marijuana use instead of focusing on the social, political and legal hysteria that have been attached to it.

The paper mentioned in this video, Marihuana Reconsidered, was published in book form. The author, Dr Lester Grinspoon, is the world's leading authority on marijuana. In this book, Dr Grinspoon examines — and debunksmany of the common misconceptions about marijuana.

Richard Dolan: UFOs & The Secret Space Program - (1-hr. & 45-min. - YouTube audio/video) - Topic: Worlds Above and Below: How A Secret Civilization Broke Away From Our Own

One thing that a study of the UFO makes abundantly clear: someone is operating technology that is not supposed to exist, and yet it does. Silent craft, for example, that can instantly accelerate, many of which are said to be of non-human origin, but others which are argued to be of classified manufacture. Is there a clandestine infrastructure that has made significant breakthroughs, but which has kept them secret from the rest of us? Richard Dolan answers in the affirmative. He argues that the UFO phenomenon is infinitely more complex than many have previously suggested, and that human and non-human groups are behind what we call UFOs. Within the human, classified part, breakthroughs have leap-frogged over each other to produce a society with substantially more advanced scientific, technological, and cosmological ideas -- a society that can accurately be called a "breakaway civilization." This covert civilization has continued to interact with our own "official" society, but at the same time appears to have interactions or encounters with one or more of the non-human groups that are here on Planet Earth. The result is a clandestine cold war, very possibly with multiple human and non-human factions.  03 Apr 2011 (info blog),

Black budget projects, The World after disclosure, National security state, Breakaway civilization.

Bio: Richard Dolan was born in Brooklyn, New York, studied at Alfred University and Oxford University, a Rhodes scholarship finalist, and completed his graduate work in history at the University of Rochester. Prior to his interest in UFOs, Dolan studied U.S. Cold War strategy, Soviet history and culture, and international diplomacy.

In 2000, he published UFOs and the National Security State: An Unclassified History, 1941-1973 (republished in 2002 with the subtitle Chronology of a Cover-Up, 1941-1973). This 500-page history provides clear detail on the major UFO cases of the early Cold War era, the attitudes and policies toward UFOs by the military and intelligence community, and the fascinating development of the citizen movements to end UFO secrecy.

In 2009, Richard completed Volume Two of his historical study, subtitled The Cover-Up Exposed, 1973-1991, and is now at work on the final volume of his historical trilogy.

Richard has also published articles and spoken at conferences around the world. Among his main themes are the destruction of our political liberties as a result of the UFO cover-up. He has also speculated on the possible nature of the non-humans themselves and what their presence here means for our civilization. This has led him to take a fresh approach to the topic of "Exopolitics" and to develop unique insights into the practical challenges and opportunities for a true disclosure of the UFO phenomenon.

Richard has done a great deal of television work, having appeared on many documentaries for the History Channel, Sci Fi Channel, BBC, and elsewhere. In 2006 he was host to a six-episode series for the Sci Fi Channel, called SciFi Investigates. Richard Dolan lives in Rochester, New York, with his wife and 2 children.

Researcher’s Video Shows Secret Software on Millions of Phones Logging Everything - (November 29, 2011 - by David Kravets - Wired) - The Android developer who raised the ire of a mobile-phone monitoring company last week is on the attack again, producing a video of how the Carrier IQ software secretly installed on millions of mobile phones reports most everything a user does on a phone.

Though the software is installed on most modern Android, BlackBerry and Nokia phones, Carrier IQ was virtually unknown until 25-year-old Trevor Eckhart of Connecticut analyzed its workings, revealing that the software secretly chronicles a user’s phone experience — ostensibly so carriers and phone manufacturers can do quality control.

But now he’s released a video actually showing the logging of text messages, encrypted web searches and, well, you name it.

Eckhart labeled the software a “rootkit,” and the Mountain View, California-based software maker threatened him with legal action and huge money damages. The Electronic Frontier Foundation came to his side last week, and the company backed off on its threats. The company told last week that Carrier IQ’s wares are for “gathering information off the handset to understand the mobile-user experience, where phone calls are dropped, where signal quality is poor, why applications crash and battery life.”

The company denies its software logs keystrokes. Eckhart’s 17-minute video clearly undercuts that claim.

In a Thanksgiving post, we mentioned this software as one of nine reasons to wear a tinfoil hat.

The video shows the software logging Eckhart’s online search of “hello world.” That’s despite Eckhart using the HTTPS version of Google which is supposed to hide searches from those who would want to spy by intercepting the traffic between a user and Google.

Cringe as the video shows the software logging each number as Eckhart fingers the dialer.

Every button you press in the dialer before you call,” he says on the video, “it already gets sent off to the IQ application.”

From there, the dataincluding the content of text messagesis sent to Carrier IQ’s servers, in secret.

By the way, it cannot be turned off without rooting the phone and replacing the operating system. And even if you stop paying for wireless service from your carrier and decide to just use Wi-Fi, your device still reports to Carrier IQ.  -

In this time his creations have evolved to such an extent that some are able to detect obstacles and change course, while others can anchor themselves when they sense a storm approaching. The most sophisticated and intricate of these creatures even have “stomachs” that can store air under pressure and use it to propel themselves in the absence of wind. According to his website, Theo eventually wants to ‘put these animals out in herds on the beaches, so they will live their own lives.’  -

It’s Not a UFO, Just a Killer Drone for an Aircraft Carrier - (December 21, 2011 - by Spencer Ackerman - Wired) - Note to the Navy: When trucking a giant flying robot with a rounded fuselage across the country, people are going to think they’re looking at an artifact from Area 51.

As the local news coverage above shows, residents of Cowley County, Kansas, were freaked out to see a truck rumbling down U.S. 77 towing what looks a whole lot like a 32-foot spaceship. “People were calling in saying, ‘Oh they think they found a flying saucer,’” Donetta Godsey of the Winfield Daily Courier told the ABC News affiliate.

Alas, the cargo wasn’t anything otherworldly. Just a trussed-up, wingless version of the Navy’s futuristic killer drone, the X-47B, which the Navy hopes will one day be the world’s first robot capable of landing on an aircraft carrier. For the past few days, it’s hitched a rather terrestrial ride from California’s Edwards Air Force Base to Patuxent River, Maryland.

“Oh, you mean the UFO?” Brooks McKinney, a spokesman for X-47B manufacturer Northrop Grumman, told Danger Room.

McKinney’s both embarrassed and amused by the UFO confusion. “They effectively shrink-wrapped the rest of the fuselage after taking the wings off the drone for the cross-country trek,” he said. “Because it was 32 feet wide, it could only travel certain hours of the day because we blocked off the road. That led to lots of weird stories, like we had abandoned [the X-47B] on the side of the road.”

The X-47B arrived safely at Pax River, the Navy’s big aviation testbed, on Tuesday. There, it’ll undergo tests to ensure it can perform its signature intended maneuver: taking off and landing on an aircraft carrier — and with those complex maneuvers eventually directed by a mere mouse click.  -

Bracelet reveals amazing craftsman's skill from 7500BC (so good it couldn't be bettered today) -  (December 23, 2011 - by Ted Thornhill - The Daily Mail/UK) - A 9,500-year-old bracelet has been analysed using the very latest computers – and the results show that it is so intricate even today’s craftsmen would struggle to improve it.

Researchers from the Institut Français d'Etudes Anatoliennes in Istanbul and Laboratoire de Tribologie et de Dynamiques des Systèmes studied the bracelet’s surface and its micro-topographic features revealing the astounding technical expertise of the maker.

The bracelet is obsidian – which means it’s made from volcanic glass – and the researchers analysis of it sheds new light on Neolithic societies, which remain highly mysterious.

Discovered in 1995 at the site of Asıklı Höyük in Turkey, it was analysed by software designed to characterise the 'orange peel effect' on car bodywork.

This process revealed that the bracelet – 10cm in diameter - was made and polished using highly specialised manufacturing techniques.

In fact, the surface was polished to a degree equal to that of today’s telescope lenses.  -
