Chiang Kai-shek in 1945

From Wikkipedia:

In 1945 when Japan surrendered, Chiang's Chongqing government was ill-equipped and damaged from fighting the Japanese, which made it difficult to reassert its authority in eastern China. Sometimes it gained cities that were formerly held by Japanese troops, which was a deeply unpopular course of action. However, with American help, it was able to reclaim the coastal cities.

Following the war, the United States encouraged peace talks between Chiang and Communist leader Mao Zedong in Chongqing. Due to concerns about widespread corruption in Chiang's government, the U.S. suspended aid to Chiang Kai-shek for much of the period of 1946 to 1948, in the midst of fighting against the People's Liberation Army led by Mao Zedong. In the 1950s, allegations of assistance to communist interests in China surfaced involving the withholding of funds for the stabilization of the Chinese currency by certain U.S. officials, including senior U.S. Treasury Department officials and alleged Soviet spies Harry Dexter White, Frank Coe, Solomon Adler, and others, in order to destabilize Chiang's Nationalist government during the Civil War.[6][7]

Though Chiang had achieved status abroad as a world leader, his government was deteriorating as a result of corruption and inflation. In his diary on June 1948, Chiang wrote that the Kuomintang had failed, not because of external enemies but because of disintegration and rot from within; and it was this, more than any alleged foreign intrigue, that contributed to his defeat. [8] The war had severely weakened the Nationalists both in terms of resources and popularity, while the Communists were strengthened by aid from Stalin[citation needed], and guerrilla organizations extending throughout rural areas. The Nationalists initially had superiority in arms and men; but their lack of popularity, heavy infiltration by communist agents in the nationalist government, and apparent disorganization soon allowed the Communists to gain the upper hand.

Meanwhile a new Constitution was promulgated in 1947, and Chiang Kai-shek was formally elected by the National Assembly to be the first term President of the Republic of China on 20 May 1948.

Paul Bremer's legacy: Bu$h's man in Iraq

Coalition Provisional Authority

The Office of Reconstruction and Humanitarian Assistance (ORHA), was established on January 20, 2003 by the United States Government two months before the 2003 invasion of Iraq. It was intended to act as a caretaker administration in Iraq until the creation of a democratically elected civilian government.

Retired United States Army Lieutenant General Jay Garner was appointed as the Director of ORHA in 2003. Upon the dissolution of ORHA and the creation of the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA), he then became the first chief executive of the CPA. Due to his past military experiences in Iraq during Operation Desert Storm in 1991 and his reconstruction efforts in northern Iraq during Operation Provide Comfort, Garner's credentials and close ties to the U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld made him an obvious choice for the task. His term, however, lasted only from April 21, 2003, until he was replaced abruptly less than a month later by Paul Bremer on May 11, 2003.

Garner's swift dismissal from his post by U.S. authorities came as a surprise to many within the CPA. In an interview with the BBC program Newsnight, Garner publicly stated that his preference was to put the Iraqi people in charge as soon as possible and to do it with some form of elections. Privately, there was intense pressure from the U.S. Government to begin a process of removing members of the Ba'ath Party from their positions within the Iraqi government and military. Garner's refusal to implement this "de-Ba'athification" of Iraqi society as a matter of public policy infuriated several senior members of the U.S. Government, and led directly to his dismissal.

The first act of the CPA under Paul Bremer was to issue order of de-Ba'athification of Iraqi society. On May 23, CPA Order Number 2 formally disbanded the Iraqi army On July 22, 2003, the CPA formed the Iraqi Governing Council and appointed its members. The Council membership consisted largely of Iraqi expatriates who had previously fled the country during the rule of Saddam Hussein and also with many outspoken dissidents who had been persecuted by the former regime.

In the late afternoon of December 14, 2003, the CPA held a press conference at the Iraqi Forum convention center within Baghdad's Green Zone to announce that former President of Iraq Saddam Hussein had been taken into custody the previous night from a foxhole in a town near Saddam's home town of Tikrit, Iraq. Present at the announcement was Lieutenant General Ricardo Sanchez of the U.S. Army, Administrator Bremer, members of the British and American intelligence agencies, several members of the Iraqi Governing Council, and a large room full of journalists representing news organizations from around the world.

In order to defeat possible insurgent planning, the CPA transferred power to the newly appointed Iraqi Interim Government at 10:26 AM local time on June 28, 2004. The CPA thus disbanded, L. Paul Bremer left Iraq that same day.

Bremer was a Managing Director of Kissinger Associates, Inc. (1989-2001
Kissinger Associates, Inc. is a New York City-based "international consulting firm" owned and managed by Henry Kissinger.
The company describes itself as providing "strategic advisory and advocacy services to a select group of multinational companies. The firm provides advice regarding special projects, assists its clients to identify strategic partners and investment opportunities, and advises clients on government relations throughout the world.

On Jan. 30, 2005, an official report by the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction stated that $9 billion for the reconstruction of Iraq might have disappeared in frauds, corruption and other misbehavior. Hmm, what happened to Mr. Bremer? He was awarded the Medal of Freedom by President George Bush.

US Congressmen Baird & Ellison: deeply affected by conditions in Gaza

February 19th 2009

Brian Views Destruction in Gaza – Calls for Immediate Relief and Change in Policy

Washington, D.C. – Two members of Congress, Brian Baird (D-WA-03), and Keith Ellison, (D-MN-05), visited Gaza on Thursday to view firsthand the destruction from recent Israeli air and ground attacks and to meet with international and local relief agencies. This visit, which did not have the official sanction of the Obama Administration, is the first time anyone from the U.S. government has entered Gaza in more than three years.

Prior to Gaza, both Congressmen met with the chief negotiator of the Palestinian Authority, Dr. Saeb Erekat, as well as with Dr. Riad Malki Foreign Minister of the Palestinian Authority. On Friday, Baird and Ellison will tour the Israeli towns of Sderot and Ashkelon, which have been the target of numerous rockets before and throughout the recent attacks launched from within the Gaza strip.

“Staff from the U.S. State Department advised us of security concerns for our own safety, and we are well aware of the sensitive political issues involved in this visit,” said both Congressmen in an official release.

“We believe it is important to be here to see what happened for ourselves, to meet with people who have been affected, and to express our concern and support,” said Congressman Baird.

“We also want to better understand what can and must be done to recover from the destruction, address the underlying issues, and work toward a lasting, just and peaceful resolution,” added Congressman Ellison.

After spending the day visiting various locations within Gaza and meeting with civilians and relief workers, Baird and Ellison were deeply affected by what they had seen and heard.

“The stories about the children affected me the most,” said Ellison. “No parent, or anyone who cares for kids, can remain unmoved by what Brian and I saw here.”

“The amount of physical destruction and the depth of human suffering here is staggering” said Baird, “Entire neighborhoods have been destroyed, schools completely leveled, fundamental water, sewer, and electricity facilities hit and relief agencies heavily damaged. The personal stories of children being killed in their homes or schools, entire families wiped out, and relief workers prevented from evacuating the wounded are heart wrenching – what went on here, and what is continuing to go on, is shocking and troubling beyond words.”

WTC~Bush Clinton Silverstein Bilderberg Connection~911

I did a post on July 29, 2008 but the video was removed.

Bush Clinton Silverstein Bilderberg Connection:

Plans to build the World Trade Center were initiated and chaired by David Rockefeller, banker, Bilderberg Group member and globalist, who had the original idea of building the WTC, with strong backing from the then New York Governor, his brother Nelson Rockefeller.

Larry Silverstein purchased the entire WTC complex just six months prior to the September 11th attacks.

Silverstein changed the company responsible for the security of the complex. The new company hired was Securacom (now Stratesec). George W. Bush's brother, Marvin Bush, was on its board of directors, their cousin, Wirt Walker III, was its CEO. According to public records. Not only did Securecom provide electronic security for the WTC, it covered Dulles International Airport and United Airlines - two key players in the attacks.

Silverstein, who made a down-payment of 124 million on this 3.2 billion complex, promptly insured it for 7 Billion covering "terrorist attacks". Following the Sept. 11th attacks, Silverstein filed two insurance claims for the maximum amount of the policy, 7 billion, based on the two - in Silverstein's view - separate 9/11 attacks. The insurance company, Swiss Re, paid Mr. Silverstein.

The World Trade Center required more than a billion in renovations and improvements, most of which related to removal and replacement of building materials declared to be health hazards in the years since the WTC was built, such as the fireproof asbestos that coated the structure's steel.

On several occasions the Port Authority attemped to get permits to demolish the WTC for liability reasons, but was turned down due the known asbestos problem. Further, the WTC was still standing until 9-11 because it was too costly to disassemble the twin towers floor by floor, since the Port Authority was prohibited legally from demolishing the WTC. The projected cost to disassemble the towers, 15 Billion. How could Silverstein Group have been ignorant of this?

How convenient that a "terrorist" attack demolished the buildings completely on Sept. 11th.

WTC Building 7 was a part of the WTC complex, and covered under the same insurance policy. This 47 story steel framed structure, which was not struck by an aircraft, mysteriously collapsed 8 hours later that same day into its own footprint at nearly freefall speed. How could this have happened? Mr. Silverstein gave the world the answer when he slipped up during a PBS television interview a year later, on nine eleven two thousand two:

"I remember getting a call from the fire department commander, telling me they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, "We've had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it." "And they made that decision to pull, and we watched the building collapse." Pull is used as industry jargon for demolition. Regardless, Silverstein did not say pull them, pull the firefighters, he said, pull "it", as if he was referring to the building while also stating "then we watched the building collapse".

One thing is for sure, the decision to 'pull' WTC 7 would have benefitted many people, especially because it has been reported that thousands of sensitive files relating to some of the biggest financial scams in history, including Enron and WorldCom were stored in the offices of WTC 7 tenants.

The SEC has not quantified the number of active cases in which substantial files were destroyed by the collapse of WTC7. Reuters published reports estimating them at three to four thousand. "Ongoing investigations at the New York SEC have been dramatically affected because so much of their work is paper intensive."

Interestingly, FEMA had arrived and was on scene the night before.

Released, September 2000, Project For A New American Century, a Neo Conservative thinktank released a report called "Rebuilding America's Defenses", where it states "the process of transformation is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event, like a new Pearl Harbor".

We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order. David Rockefeller, September 1994, Builderberg Group Founding Member, a group, their own documents show is pushing for a world Government, integrating the United States with Mexico, Canada and population reduction.

Even if you do not believe that 911 was a conspiracy as the overwhelming evidence supporting this shows, you have to at least understand that, 9-11 was for some reason allowed to happen given the countless, documented prior intelligence.

CHEMTRAILS: What's Behind the Government Cover-Up?


Dennis Kucinich came to Santa Cruz on May 25, 2003. When asked about "Chemtrails" while he was here, Dennis was quoted as publically saying "CHEMTRAILS ARE REAL". As head of the Armed Services oversight committee, he should know.

Dennis is the man that brought us the Space Preservation Act 2001 in an attempt to halt chemtrail activity. But the Act was met with strong resistance by the powers that be because of the inclusion of the word "chemtrails". It was therefore watered down into the Space Preservation Act 2002 in which the word "chemtrails" was completely removed so as to allow the spraying to continue.

Oh! No! The Democrats might restore the Fairness Doctrine

The rats who now control over 90% of the main stream media are freaking out at the idea of returning to the Fairness Doctrine , which has been held in check for years by Vetoes from both Ronnie Raygun and Poppa Bu$h. The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that required the holders of broadcast licenses both to present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was (in the Commission's view) honest, equitable, and balanced. Faux News, who's motto is, "cough cough* fair and balanced' has a few things to say about this outrageous possibility.

And needless to menton, so does Clear Channel who owns over 1,100 full-power AM, FM, and shortwave radio stations, twelve radio channels on XM Satellite Radio, and more than 30 television stations in the United States. Premiere Radio Networks, which is the largest syndication company in the United States, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Clear Channel and is home to Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and many others. Sean Hannity recently signed a large multi-market contract with Clear Channel, as well.

In early 2004, Air America Radio Network was launched and was then the only all-progressive talk radio network. A predecessor, the UAW's I.E. America Radio Network, which was home to hosts such as Thom Hartmann, Peter Werbe, and Mike Malloy, never gained national attention. Its last day on the air was February 27, 2004, only weeks before Air America took to the airwaves. Al Franken's show was the centerpiece of the network, and would remain so for a little less than 3 years. The show featured Franken's low key humor, political commentary, and guest and audience participation. AAR became the fastest growing network in modern radio history as Sinton was able to assemble a national network of 100 stations, including 18 of the top twenty markets, in just six months.

New Legislation Authorizes FEMA Camps In U.S.

by Paul Joseph Watson

Global Research, January 28, 2009

A new bill introduced in Congress authorizes the Department of Homeland Security to set up a network of FEMA camp facilities to be used to house U.S. citizens in the event of a national emergency.

The National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645 mandates the establishment of “national emergency centers” to be located on military installations for the purpose of to providing “temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster,” according to the bill.

The legislation also states that the camps will be used to “provide centralized locations to improve the coordination of preparedness, response, and recovery efforts of government, private, and not-for-profit entities and faith-based organizations”.

Ominously, the bill also states that the camps can be used to “meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security,” an open ended mandate which many fear could mean the forced detention of American citizens in the event of widespread rioting after a national emergency or total economic collapse.

Many credible forecasters have predicted riots and rebellions in America that will dwarf those already witnessed in countries like Iceland and Greece.

With active duty military personnel already being stationed inside the U.S. under Northcom, partly for purposes of “crowd control,” fears that Americans could be incarcerated in detainment camps are all too real.

The Health Dangers of Genetically Modified Foods

Posted on: 21 January 2008

Over the last 20 years Jeff Smith has worked with over 30 scientists to collect all of the known health risks of genetically modified foods. Studies have produced thousands of sick, sterile and dead laboratory animals; thousands of people linking toxic and allergic type reactions to these foods and damage to virtually every system in the laboratory animals studied. Despite this alarming evidence 70% of the foods in our supermarkets have genetically modified organisms in them.

Traces of animal life have been found in rocks dating back 635 million years.

Ancient sponges leave their mark

By Jonathan Amos February 4, 2009
Science reporter, BBC News

Rocks in Oman

The rocks date to a time of dramatic glaciation on Earth

Traces of animal life have been found in rocks dating back 635 million years.

The evidence takes the form of chemical markers that are highly distinctive of sponges when they die and their bodies break down in rock-forming sediments.

The discovery in Oman pushes back the earliest accepted date for animal life on Earth by tens of millions of years.

Scientists tell Nature magazine that the creatures' existence will help them understand better what the planet looked like all that time ago.

"The fact that we can detect these signals shows that sponges were ecologically important on the seafloor at that time," said lead author Gordon Love, from the University of California, Riverside.


Photo taken from the bottom of the Grand Canyon, Arizona in January 2002. This is some of the oldest exposed rock in the world, with an average age of 1,700 to 2,000 million years. These rock layers were once the base of an ancient mountain range, comparable to the Rockies, which over time completely eroded away and now provides a tantalizing glimpse of the enormous time scale on which geologic events occur. The Colorado River is in the foreground.

Early Pre-Cambrian Rocks

* Vishnu Schist and Zoroaster Granite - This layer averages about 1,700 to 2,000 million years old and consists of mica schist. These were originally sediments of sandstone, limestone and shale that were metamorphosed and combined with metamorphosed lava flows to form the schist. This layer along with the Zoroaster Granite were once the roots of an ancient mountain range that could have been as high as todays Rocky Mountains. The mountains were eroded away over a long period of time and new sediments were they deposited over them by advancing and retreating seas. The color of this layer is dark grey or black.

The President's Therapist and the Secret Intervention to Treat the Alcoholism of George Bush

A work of fiction, John Wareham, a practicing psychologist for corporate nut cases, has written an interesting sounding book about a counselor for George Duhhbya Bu$h...zzzZZZ* Or is it?

Washington Watch

On this video Mark Alter says it is the 2nd of may 2007

On May5,2007 his housekeeper reports him missing.

It also Shows that Mark Alter was an adviser to the Eagles Foundation of America, which is actually advised by John Wareham.

And that his son, Ethan Alter, died of a drug overdose on April 25, 2007.

His wife of 30 years Grace was killed in 2002.


Here's a review from across the pond.

The Kiwi author, the president and alcohol

By BRITTON BROUN and NZPA - The Dominion Post | Saturday, 17 January 2009

A Kiwi author is about to storm the United States with a controversial novel that explores outgoing President George W Bush's battle with the bottle and motivations for starting the Iraq War.

John Wareham's book, The President's Therapist and the Secret Intervention to Treat the Alcoholism of George Bush, will not appear in US stores till January 20 when Barack Obama is inaugurated but is already into its second print run after climbing online bestseller lists.

The thriller follows the attempts of protagonist Mark Alter to persuade Bush to address his closet alcohol addiction and reverse the course of the Iraq war.

While the therapy sessions and marriage counselling involving Mr Bush's wife are pure fiction, Wareham said the story contained a lot of biographical data.

"Someone said it was a Bush-bashing book, but it's not at all. It treats him very sympathetically and accurately. He's just too easy to make a caricature of so the book does not do that."

Wareham, 69, is an industrial psychologist who has lived in New York for more than 30 years since leaving Wellington.

He was one of New Zealand's first corporate leadership trainers and has published several books.

He counsels business leaders in the US but likes getting back to New Zealand to work with gang leaders and prisoners.

His mother and brother still live in Wellington.

Wareham was flattered that New York literature professor Charles Defanti had compared the book's "hyper-realism" to Tolstoy but thought it should be easier to read than anything by the Russian master.

He joked the book was being officially released after Mr Obama was inaugurated to make sure CIA agents under the Bush regime did not make him "disappear".

Braddock Rises From the Ashes

NY Times Video

View of the old town from the back yard. The building with the COSCO sign on it is the mayors penthouse. These pictures are clickable for closer view.

The Carnegie Library

When Andrew Carnegie dedicated the Braddock Library in 1889, he intended it primarily for the benefit of his employees of his first major steel mill, the Edgar Thomson Works, and their families. The Music Hall, Pool, and Gymnasium were added in 1893. At a time when few homes had indoor plumbing and a bath was a rarity, this was the place where employees could come to shower or bathe, take a swim, enjoy a book, play billiards, and get a haircut!
