Wikileaks leaked video of Civilians killed in Baghdad — Full video
Wikileaks has obtained and decrypted this previously unreleased video footage from a US Apache helicopter in 2007. It shows Reuters journalist Namir Noor-Eldeen, driver Saeed Chmagh, and several others as the Apache shoots and kills them in a public square in Eastern Baghdad. They are apparently assumed to be insurgents. After the initial shooting, an unarmed group of adults and children in a minivan arrives on the scene and attempts to transport the wounded. They are fired upon as well. The official statement on this incident initially listed all adults as insurgents and claimed the US military did not know how the deaths ocurred. Wikileaks released this video with transcripts and a package of supporting documents on April 5th 2010 on http://collateralmurder.com/

Death Camps Warned Being Prepared As Millions In US Left Hopeless
VKS satellites had been tasked with overseeing this vast area of the United States after Obama had ordered all of these 13 million acres not to be flown over by aircraft or trespassed upon under threat of life imprisonment. A chilling Russian Space Forces (VKS) report prepared for Prime Minister Putin is warning today the United States is in the process of constructing at least 300 massive “death camps”in 11 of their Western States secret documents had previously revealed President Obama’s Department of the Interior was preparing to take over in a massive 13-million acre land grab against his own people.
These reports further state that the US Northern American Command has been put in charge of this “death camp” project and in their largest logistical deployment since World War IIare moving massive amounts of equipment from their war zones to America in preparation for “relocating” nearly 30 million of their citizens into them over the next 3 years.

Greenpeace To Global Warming Skeptics: “We Know Where You Live”
An article carried by the official Greenpeace website written by a Greenpeace member urges climate activists to resort to criminal activity in an effort to reinvigorate momentum for their stalling global warming agenda, while ominously threatening climate skeptics, “we know where you live”.
The article, written by Greenpeace activist “Gene” from India, calls for “mass civil disobedience to cut off the financial oxygen from denial and skepticism”.
“Gene” then has a special message for roughly half of Americans who, in the wake of the climategate scandal, are now skeptical of man-made global warming – “We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work. And we be many, but you be few.”
“Gene” quotes another climate activist who calls for an army of greenies to break the law and take retribution against anyone who stands in their way.

Labour is 'worst government ever', says Mark Serwotka
The Labour government has been branded the "worst in the history of this country” by the head of one of Britain’s biggest trade unions.
Mark Serwotka, general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services Union, said the government’s poor treatment of public sector workers meant it was a worse employer than the Conservatives under Margaret Thatcher or John Major.
In a bitter attack, he called for unions to take “united industrial action” as a last resort to defend jobs, pensions and services.
In scenes reminiscent of union rallies of the 60s and 70s, teachers chanted “the workers, united, will never be defeated” as they gave Mr Serwotka a standing ovation

Harriet - Debate The Digital Economy Bill
Harriet Harman MP, Leader of the House of Commons, will – on Thursday afternoon – have to explain the Government’s plans for the Digital Economy Bill.
The Bill has suffered from huge manipulation by lobbyists, including insertion of entire new clauses at the behest of music lobbyists the BPI, and accusations that Lords amended the Bill without declaring their interests.
The Bill still includes highly controversial measures to disconnect families from the internet after allegations of copyright infringement. There are as yet unknown measures to block websites, with the potential for censorship. Such measures should not be rushed through during ‘wash up.
Harriet Harman, as Leader of the Commons has the power to recommend the Parliamentary timetable. That’s why we are asking for her to guarantee that the Bill receive full, line by line scrutiny. Nothing less will do. Take action now – email Harriet. It’ll take you less than 2 minutes.

U.S. Treasury Bond Market Alert: This Should Scare The Heck Out of All of Us Right Now
Interest rates in the bond market are rising. The issue is now center stage according to a fresh article on the subject at MarketWatch. I'm afraid hell has arrived, while the market is still doing its best to ignore it. Its easy to explain and understand why and it is frightening to consider the coming consequence. More so, it is a timely issue currently being ignored by the markets but ready to rear its ugly head.
State Services Start To Collapse Across The US and Europe
Reading the pages of the financial news, you would be forgiven for imagining the dawn of a new golden age was breaking. The Dow Jones hits a new high each week. Optimism is back in vogue. All memories of the recent Lehman and Bear Stearns collapses, and subprime defaults are missing from the front pages.
The Long Wave (aka The K Wave) “Jubilee” Cycle
The long wave debate rages on. Meanwhile, the global debt berg, the chief product of crony state capitalism, has begun to block the profligate paths of listing ships of state. The confident captains of crony state capitalism are at the helm, sailing into the foggy financial abyss of cascading sovereign debt defaults. The growing black hole of sovereign debt threatens to pull the global economy into its collapsing vortex, the quintessential black swan event. Coming out the other side of the black hole of collapsing debt beyond 2012, we suspect the world will be a very different place. A new golden age will dawn.

PM’s ‘sneaky tax’ rise claims
GORDON Brown was yesterday accused of hammering hard-working Brits with a series of sneaky tax rises.
Tory figures showed average National Insurance receipts have risen FIVE TIMES faster than income tax since 2001.
And the average family has seen its NI contributions soar by TWELVE TIMES as much as its income tax bills.
Does Labour expect taxpayers to pay for the NI rise in the public sector, too?
Private-sector workers will have to pay twice for Labour's tax rise on jobs.

Russia Warns US Communist Threat Endangering Entire World
In a chilling speech to Russian defense experts on March 1, Prime Minister Putin ordered the buildup of strategic weapons and warned that the growing threat of the expansion of American Communism is endangering the entire World and bringing the Motherland closer to war than at any time since the1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.
Putin had previously warned the United States against its planned adoption of Communism during his January, 2009 speech to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland upon Obama taking office, and had stated:
“The concentration of surplus assets in the hands of the state is a negative aspect of anti-crisis measures in virtually every nation. In the 20th century, the Soviet Union made the state’s role absolute. In the long run, this made the Soviet economy totally uncompetitive. This lesson cost us dearly. I am sure nobody wants to see it repeated.”
Unfortunately though, Obama, and those Communist forces backing him, do want to see this monster of a system repeated and have in the past year accelerated the United States descent into the abyss of total state control over all aspects of Americans lives and have created one of the most all encompassing “surveillance societies” our World has ever seen.
While America Drowns, Obama and the Elites Party
There is, yet again, something very Romanesque about the state of the Americans, their empire and their collapse. As the US continues to sink in its co-UK created economic armageddon, the ruling regime enjoys the fruits of its labour of looting and swindling. This is the great “Democracy” they sell us, overseas.

Economic Doomsday 2012 In The Cards
Many of you surely remember that in 2008, the world elites urged a coordinated action to tackle the threatening down turn, plunging their respective countries deeper into debt to give the bankers an unlimited amount of blank checks, while convincing taxpayers to foot the bill under the guise of acting to save their jobs. Now that the bailouts' side effects are spreading like wild-fire and have obviously become global, the odds are setting us up for a day of reckoning the like of which has never been seen. Liquidation of the Western middle class is unavoidable; let alone the developing countries: for them it will be a lot worse as they have borrowed (from now bankrupt empires) since the end of the colonies. They earned not their independence but a colonization of another kind. If there is no major wake-up call, the entire planet will be left in the hands of a few fascist banks and corporations at the head of a World Government. The wolves in sheep clothing have worked on this for more than 300 years. Money doesn't mean anything to them, but power

Global warming: Greenpeace abandons reality--lies, libel and scummy behaviour are more fun, I guess
Greenpeace is an environmental organisation that thinks global warming is the challenge of our age. It is natural for them to combat opposing opinions, and vigorously. We would think less of them if they didn't.
But they have just published a report that flings mud in all directions, obscuring the issue they need to highlight. What they have done in this report is wrong, and will serve them badly in the future. The main target of their report is Koch Industries, a private oil firm that has contributed close to $25 million over the past 4 years to what Greenpeace calls 'a climate denial machine.'

On the impact of online advertising
Seamus McCauley is horrifed by the effect of online targetted advetising upon politics. Essentially, it's possibly to target such advertising so precisely that only the losers from a particular political proposal will see the ads. So instead of everyone considering said policy, only those who would suffer are alerted to it and of course, only those who would lose from it are likely to start shouting about how it shouldn't happen.

MPs begin the Climategate whitewash
To anyone who watched or read the hearings of the Commons committee looking into "Climategate", the scandal over leaked documents from the East Anglia Climatic Research Unit, two things might have been obvious. The first was that all but one of the MPs (Labour's Graham Stringer) were hopelessly out of their depth in their efforts to understand this not very complex story. The other was that their chief purpose was to find that the CRU and its director, Professor Philip Jones, had done nothing wrong and that the case for man-made global warming remained intact.

Putting a Price Tag on the Melting Ice Caps
Reports about the melting ice caps are distressing, but for the most part climate change remains abstract. The poor polar bear has been trotted out as the tangible face of global warming so often that we're beginning to see "polar bear fatigue." How about bringing the effects of Arctic melt close to home, as in what it will cost? A new study does just that, and the results are alarming, not just for Arctic dwellers but for all of us. According to lead author Eban Goodstein, Ph.D., over the next 40 years Arctic ice melt will take an economic toll of between $2.4 trillion and $24 trillion. Unless we change course — and fast.
