Spielberg to Direct Lockerbie Bombing Movie

Legendary Hollywood director Steven Spielberg will direct a movie regarding the Dec. 21, 1988, bombing of Pan Am 103 over the town of Lockerbie in Scotland.

The movie is an adaptation of the book Flight 103,  written by former Israeli officer and MOSSAD agent Juval Aviv.

”I believe the book will have an impact around the world because what happened over Lockerbie that day affected so many people in so many countries, and continues to do so,” Aviv said a few weeks before the release of the book.

Hillary encouraged husband to declassify UFO information, Canadian researcher discovers

Laurance Rockefeller, and Hillary ClintonBarack Obama may be coming on like a rock star and the second coming of a JFK in the charisma department, but Hillary Clinton’s arrival at the White House may be destined in the stars.

A new Clinton constituency among truth seekers in Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) may have been uncovered by Canadian researcher Grant Cameron from the Office of Science and Technology Policy, who, via the Freedom of Information Act, gleaned information that Hillary Clinton coaxed her husband while he was president to declassify government documents on UFOs.  The information found by Cameron comes from nearly 1,000 pages of correspondence and documents.

It seems that Hillary was under the influence of Laurance Rockefeller in wanting to pry loose information about extraterrestrials.

Gorging Gore “addicted” to steak

imagePETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) may have got former Vice President Al Gore in the doghouse with his main Global Warming sidekick Maurice Strong by pointing out his “addiction” to red meat.

  While “PETA appreciates the work that Al Gore has done to raise awareness about the problem of global warming (emphasis PETA’s, they think he’s “Too chicken to go vegetarian”.

  Gore may be finicky when it comes to Mr. Edison’s incandescent light bulb, but according to PETA his love for steak and sausage is creating greenhouse gas emissions.

Alleged gunrunner’s wife says she saw no sign of huge arms shipments

No doubt Victor Bout has a loving and loyal wife. All she told The Times is her own version of his business life and an expression of her affection to him.

The most interesting news in this article is that the Thai authorities “dropped charges against him last week” but they still want to hand him over to the American justice. Russian media wrote about Bout’s connections to the Russian military intelligence and his association with high Kremlin bosses, Igor Sechin in particular. It seems very likely that Victor Bout’s arrest in Bangkok wasn’t a “detached” event but the result of an “underground” fight in the Russian military and intelligence establishment.

Pallywood Strikes again

At the recent closing arguments of the Mohammed al-Dura trial, France 2 screened a special video presentation about what happened at the Netzarim Junction on the fateful day. That presentation, which Charles Enderlin recently posted online, unfortunately relies on the same kind of staged footage as the original al-Dura video did.

Professor Richard Landes blows the lid on this disingenuous video.

Go to our Backspin blog to see Enderlin’s footage and to comment on this story. The France2 presentation’s in French, of course, but even if you mute the sound, you’ll easily understand what Enderlin wants the images to convey.

Was There a Second Irangate?

Oliver North (left) and Richard LawlessOnly half of the Iran-Contra affair has been told.
—Amiram Nir, counterterrorism advisor to Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres, point-man of Oliver North in the Iran-Contra operations, from an interview with Bob Woodward, Summer 1988:

While reviewing some materials concerning various Iranian political events having occurred during the last years of Khomeini, I came across a fantastic piece of information which allows us to identify with great probability, in fact with near certainty, the man previously only known as “Witness C”  or by his alias,  Abolghasem Mesbahi.

Just how much stupidity can one world tolerate?

Life is hard. It’s harder if you’re stupid.”  - JOHN WAYNE

Is stupid the new smart? Is dumb the new wise? Is oblivious the new aware?

I am prompted to pose these simple questions in light of current events as witnessed through the probing lenses of television cameras and the scribblings of the popular print media, not to mention the prolific news sources found on the Internet and the overcrowded field occupied by far too many bloggers all jostling elbow-to-elbow for my rapidly diminishing attention span.

Have you noticed over the past decade or so how television, movies, magazines and newspapers glorify the antics of really stupid people? I think the movie Dumb and Dumber opened the floodgates to this trend.

By royal command: Earth Hour

Toronto motorists were warned on traffic highway signs yesterday that lights in the city should be turned off between 8 & 9 p.m., Saturday, March 29 for Earth Hour.

  Here’s hoping that all would-be home invaders, pedophiles, rapists and burglars don’t drive.

  Lights have always gone a long way in keeping John Q. Public safe from criminal elements up to no good.

The FARC Jones Boy & Congressman James McGovern

Democrat James McGovern, FARC leader Raul ReyesDead men talk and in the Colombian-Ecuadorian jungle, they talk loudly about Congressman James McGovern (D-Mass).

  The media-downplayed hard drive recovered from the computer of killed Colombian guerilla Raul Reyes, No. 2 in command of the Colombian FARC, tells a tawdry tale of the opposition of House Democrats to the US. -Colombia Free Trade Agreement.

  “Some Democrats oppose the Colombia trade deal because they sympathize more with FARC’s terrorists than with a U.S. antiterror ally (Colombia)”

Are suspected terrorists in the “Toronto 18” the same as members of the “Toronto 1

In an effort to provide them a fair trial, the Canadian government is seeking a limited publication ban on the identities of the adults charged with belonging to the so-called “Toronto 18” group.  The identity of the youth charged with belonging to a homegrown terror cell is already protected under the Young Criminal Justice Act.

  The trial for the youth gets underway in a Brampton court today.

  Almost unheard of since they were nabbed in a foiled undercover operation to kidnap and behead members of Parliament, among other things on June 2, 2006, some of the suspected terrorists are alleged to have attended a terrorist training camp in a wooded area in Washago, near Gravenhurst.

The so-called Toronto-18 is not the first group of suspected terrorists to have fallen off the public radar screen.
