  • Forget fast cars and yachts, passports are the new status symbol for the ultra rich

    Ultra high-net worth individuals are turning their attention away from sports cars, yachts and designer clobber, and are instead focusing on acquiring the latest status symbol among the super wealthy: passports. Today it is entirely possible to buy and sell citizenship, and for the ultra rich, the more passports they can get their hands on, the better. Citizenship by investment programmes (CIPs) is a concept that began in 1984, when the two-island Caribbean nation of St Kitts and Nevis came up with the idea to encourage wealthy individuals to pump money into its economy in exchange for a passport, which...
  • Ebola Disinformation Spread by Leftist Professor

    The Ebola disinformation surfaced in a Liberian newspaper on September 9, 2014, in a letter by an American professor. The “Dear World citizens” column, by Dr. Cyril Broderick, has since been picked up by various Internet sites and “news” organizations, including Alex Jones’ Infowars, Global Research, Iranian Press TV, Information Clearing House, and something called 21st Century Wire. Labeled by some critics as the “nutty professor” and a crackpot, the professor’s “research profile” claims he is president of the International Society of African Scientists. Other local and regional sources, such as “Face 2 Face Africa,” described as “The Premier Pan-African...

    For some time, an argument has been made that the liberal left, in refusing to examine the problems of Islam, has betrayed its Enlightenment roots. That is, while secular, feminist, and protective of free speech in dealing with its Western peers, the liberal left has been accused of abandoning its heritage in its quest for political correctness regarding Muslims. In truth, however, the left has a distinguished background of courting Islam as a weapon against Western capitalism. Its most representative figures from the past did so frankly, as the following rehearsal of their statements demonstrates. Karl Marx supported the Ottoman...
  • Dana Priest's controversial co-author (William Arkin)

    07/20/2010 8:50:03 AM PDT · by OldDeckHand · 11 replies ^ | 07/20/2010 | KEACH HAGEY
    With two Pulitzer Prizes to her name, Dana Priest is one of the Washington Post’s most celebrated reporters. Until Monday, when the Post published the first installment of a bombshell series on post-9/11 intelligence industrial complex, national security blogger William Arkin was hardly known to the paper’s readers. But from a media perspective, Arkin’s role as co-author of the series might be the more important. It marks the first time one of the Post’s bloggers – lately the cause of controversy because they sometimes blur opinion and reporting — has had a byline in one of the paper’s big, investigative...

    I have permission from the copyright holder and that it’s not an online paper so there is no link.Immediately after the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting, the President and many other left wing politicians began clamoring for more laws to control the sale of military rifles and ammunition. Some went so far as to call for a complete ban on the rifles and large capacity ammunition clips. President Obama, who favored a total ban on all firearms while in the Illinois Senate, reacted by giving a television address in which stricter gun control legislation appears to be the center...

    Warning, this is another of my looong posts! I have struggled with the title to this post because on the one hand we are seeing the exposure of coordinated effort by some extremely leftwing people suffering from Nirvana delusions working to use the media and courts to change the political direction of this country. The fact they need to lie and hide their intentions means they are smart enough to know the American people would have nothing to do with them if they came out and said what they truly think. But the policies they promote from their think...

    Not much misses the eagle eye of Lucianne Goldberg, plain "Lucianne" or "Lucy" to a generation of up and coming Internet journalists. Having made her mark as a journalist, literary agent, radio presenter and as chief catalyst behind the one-woman run, the New York resident stands down to no one. The woman who once caught slippery fish Bill Clinton in her net by helping Linda Tripp tape-record Clinton’s mistress Monica Lewinsky, lands a lot of fish swimming in foreign ponds. Thanks to the perspicacious Lucianne comes the Dana Priest-William Goodfellow-Center for International Policy (CIP) connection. Washington Post National Security...

    Now, it has another mission. Fenton has established a “war room” with CIP called The Iraq Policy Information Program (IPIP). Its main job is getting the anti-Bush foreign policy message out to the media and providing guests for talk shows. A featured speaker of the IPIP is former ambassador Joe Wilson, one of the Bush administration’s most vocal enemies. Like and Win Without War, the contact for the Iraq Policy Information Program is Fenton Communications. Win Without War also collects tax-deductible donations through CIP.

William Goodfellow is the Executive Director of the the Center for International Policy (CIP).Here is what Discover The Networks has to say about the Center For International Policy: Dana Priest on left.America’s Red ArmyOne of the most sophisticated of Fenton’s anti-war projects is the co-mingling of Win Without War and the Center for International Policy (CIP). Before 9/11, CIP, a Fenton Communications client, mainly acted as Fidel Castro’s greatest “think tank” ally. Much of its million-dollar budget was spent lobbying to end economic sanctions and travel restrictions against Cuba.Now, it...

    Michael Fister has come to India not to save money but to make money. He has seen opportunity budding at Beceem Communications, a young chip design company tucked into a few floors of a building in a bustling residential area of Bangalore. He has watched it surge at Wipro, one of India's outsourcing giants. And Fister has spotted a burst of opportunity at MindTree, an R&D and consulting firm that is building a 15-acre campus west of downtown Bangalore, a few kilometers away from streets choked with shanties. Fister runs Cadence Design Systems, a $1.3 billion (sales) vendor of software...

    There are dangerous men in the world and Daniel Pipes is one of them. He first came to my attention several years ago during a visit to Washington. It appeared that a number of Arab-Americans were concerned about him and the growing influence he was exerting in the media and the political arenas. Prior to the attacks of Sept. 11 Pipes was voicing his apprehension regarding the dangers of Muslim immigration into the United States as a potential “fifth column” for radical Islamists. After the attacks, Pipe’s media exposure grew. Called upon as a “Middle Eastern expert,” he staged his...
  • Patriotic, Peaceful Muslims - (can this be genuine?..or is it a ploy?)

    04/08/2005 7:01:56 PM PDT · by CHARLITE · 78 replies · 1,052+ views
    A new group of American Muslims has declared itself committed to moderation, patriotism, and peaceful coexistence with non-Muslims. It's called the Center for Islamic Pluralism, an organization made up of both American-born and immigrant Muslims, lifelong Muslims and converts. If this organization succeeds in being what it has set out to be, it will fill a vacuum many Americans have felt keenly since 9/11: it will be a real counterweight in the Islamic community to jihadist radicalism and fanaticism. In its inaugural press release the CIP declared its intention to "promote moderate Islam in the U.S. and globally; educate the...

In a 195-page decision, the judges said the Children's Internet Protection Act went too far because the filters also can block access to sites that contain protected speech.</p>
