Fellow Inmate Claims that Batman Massacre Suspect James Holmes said he was ‘programmed to kill’

Yes this dude is a “criminal”, and as we know they have no credibility UNLESS they are testifying for the state right? BUT, this accounting sounds very plausible! In fact it goes perfectly with what we dug up in our investigation of the Aurora Co Shootings. (search our website)

and who is going to believe a criminal?

Denver Westword Blog

Unruh insists the sporadic conversation continued even after Holmes was moved to another cell in the area. He says that Holmes told him “he felt like he was in a video game” during the shooting, that “he wasn’t on his meds” and “nobody would help him.” He says Holmes also mentioned NLP — presumably, neuro-linguistic programming, a much-scorned and outmoded approach to psychotherapy — and claimed to have been “programmed” to kill by an evil therapist.

“When he got out to his car, he wasn’t programmed no more,” Unruh says. “It sounded kind of crazy. He was trying to run it by me, basically.”

Unruh has a phone number that he says Holmes asked him to call. (The number connects to the cell phone of a bereavement counselor, who says she has no acquaintance with Holmes or Unruh.) He has a form that indicates James Holmes tried to send him a letter, but it was rejected by jail authorities. (Knight says he has no record of any letter sent by Holmes to Unruh, intercepted or otherwise.) He claims to have received messages from Holmes via other inmates since that night, but he admits he doesn’t know if the sender was actually Holmes.

Still, Unruh’s story seems to have drawn interest in one unlikely quarter. He says Holmes told him he “walked up and down the aisles” of the theater three times before he opened fire, and that detail, if true, might have some bearing on the pending litigation by victims’ families against the theater chain. Unruh has paperwork indicating that he’s been in communication with at least one family member on that point.

Actually, The Newest Version Of NDAA Makes It EASIER To Detain Citizens Indefinitely

November 30, 2012 by  
Filed under Police State

2013 version National Defense Authorization Act(NDAA) did more to protect Americans against indefinite detention. We and several other news organizations reported as much yesterday.But on closer examination the new NDAA actually makes it EASIER to detain citizens indefinitely.

Here’s the added clause in question:

“Nothing in the AUMF or the 2012 NDAA shall be construed to deny the availability of the writ of habeas corpus or to deny any Constitutional rights in a court ordained or established by or under Article III of the Constitution for any person who is lawfully in the United States when detained pursuant to the AUMF and who is otherwise entitled to the availability of such writ or such rights.”

Yesterday we focused on the line “nothing … shall be construed to deny … any constitutional Rights …”

But today we offer another interpretation from Bruce Afran, a lawyer for the group of journalists and activists suing the government over the 2012 NDAA.

Afran explained that the new provision gives U.S. citizens a right to go to civilian (i.e. Article III) court based on “any [applicable] constitutional rights,” but since there are are no rules in place to exercise this right, detained U.S. citizens currently have no way to gain access to lawyers, family or the court itself once they are detained within the military.

“The biggest thing about the [2012] NDAA was that you weren’t getting a trial … Nothing in here says that you’ll make it to an Article III court so it literally does nothing,” Dan Johnson, founder of People Against the NDAA, told BI. “It’s a bunch of words, basically,”

Afran noted that the newest version actually goes further than the NDAA that’s now in effect.

“The new statute actually states that persons lawfully in the U.S. can be detained under the Authorization for the Use of Military Force [AUMF]. The original (the statute we are fighting in court) never went that far,” Afran said. “Therefore, under the guise of supposedly adding protection to Americans, the new statute actually expands the AUMF to civilians in the U.S.

The suit against the government challenges the indefinite detention provisions of section 1021 of the 2012 NDAA—which allow the military to indefinitely detain anyone who commits a “belligerent act” or provides “substantial support” to the Taliban, al-Qaeda or “associated forces”—on the grounds that certain terms were unconstitutionally vague and could chill free speech.

The provisions were permanently blocked by Judge Katherine Forrest but went back into effect after Appeals Court Judge Raymond Lohier reinstated them in October because he agreed with the government that section 1021 was simply a “reaffirmation” of the AUMF, which gives the president the authority to indefinitely detain anyone involved in carrying out the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The newest version of the NDAA seems to be equating the AUMF and section 1021 of the 2012 NDAAwhich the government has argued all along—and thereby codifies precisely what the plaintiffs are fighting in court.

All of this makes the lawsuit—which will probably go all the way to the Supreme Court—central to the issue of the indefinite detention of Americans.

The bottom line, according to Afran, is that the NDAA “is still unconstitutional because it allows citizens or persons in the U.S. to be held in military custody, a position that the Supreme Court has repeatedly held is unconstitutional.”

Palestine wins non-member state status

November 30, 2012 by  
Filed under World

A lopsided vote in the UN General Assembly turned delegates from around the world into cheering fans as Palestine won enhanced Non-Member state status on Monday. The final tally — 138 For — 9 Against with 41 abstentions — was a clear referendum on the world’s feelings of Palestinian statehood.

Before the vote was taken — Acting Palestinian Authority Chief, Mahmoud Abbas called for the world to free his people from decades of Israeli abuse.

The victory adds to the growing isolation of Israel and it main backer, the United States. The US and Israel have threatened vindictive measures against Palestine’s finances — but Russian Ambassador Vitaly Churkin says he’s hoping for better behavior.

Arafat’s Body Exhumed (History, Facts, Effect)

November 29, 2012 by  
Filed under Commentary

Want to stir the pot in the Mid East? Well then this is the perfect time to dig up the ghost of Arafat. This has Gladio / P2OG written all over it. 

by Stephen Lendman

 

On November 27, Arafat’s body was exhumed. Samples were taken from his remains and surrounding soil. Tests are being conducted. International experts are involved.

 

Earlier evidence proved he died from radioactive polonium poisoning. Tests will check for all possible toxic substances.

 

Israel had motive and opportunity. Mossad and Shin Bet have long histories of targeted assassinations. They use poisons and other means. Ariel Sharon’s government bears full responsibility.

 

Fourteen months earlier, then Israeli Vice Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told Israeli radio after a cabinet meeting:

 

“How are we going to” remove Arafat? “Expulsion is certainly one of the options, and killing is also one of the options.”

 

In July 2000, Arafat fell out of favor. Bill Clinton hosted him and then Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak at Camp David.

 

Barak insisted Arafat sign a “final agreement” and declare an “end of conflict.” Doing so would have renounced any legal claim to Palestine land.

 

Nothing was put in writing. No documents or maps were presented. Barak wanted Palestinian land divided into four isolated bantustans surrounded by expanding settlements and other Israeli controlled territory.

 

He offered terms no responsible leader would accept. He demanded unconditional surrender. Arafat refused and was unfairly blamed. It very likely led to his death by assassination.

 

On September 29, 2000, a second Intifada erupted. Sharon provoked it. On September 28, accompanied by 1,000 Israeli troops and police, he staged a provocative visit to Islam’s third holiest site – the Haram al-Sharif sacred shrine and Al-Aqsa Mosque.

 

A cycle of violence followed. Jenin perhaps was most affected. In April 2002, its refugee camp was attacked.

 

Hundreds of buildings were destroyed. Palestinians were buried under rubble. Water and power were cut off. Food, medical aid, and other essentials were kept out. Unknown numbers of civilian men, women and children were slaughtered in cold blood.

 

IDF violence targeted other areas. Palestinians never had a chance. When the five-year Intifada ended, 4,166 Palestinians died. Among them were 886 children and 271 women.

 

Thousands more were injured or disabled. Hundreds of targeted assassinations occurred. Thousands were imprisoned, including 288 children and 115 women.

 

Another 2,329,659 dunums of Palestinian land were stolen, thousands more razed, and over 1.3 million trees uprooted. Nearly 7,800 homes were demolished. Another 98,800 were damaged.

 

Israeli crimes were extreme. Palestinian victims were blamed. Israel called it self-defense. Arafat was targeted. His failure to surrender at Camp David cost him his life.

 

In March 2002, Israel lay siege to his Ramallah (Mukataa) compound. It continued until May. Troops surrounded it. Tanks and armored vehicles smashed through walls.

 

Palestinian intelligence headquarters was shelled. Heavy damage was inflicted. Troops stormed a facility adjacent to Arafat’s compound.

 

He and close aides took refuge on a lower floor. His security guards and IDF forces exchanged fire. At least five Palestinians were killed. Two dozen or more were wounded.

 

Power and phone lines were cut. Arafat was totally isolated. Israeli snipers shot anyone trying to leave his compound. Israeli troops and tanks let no one in or out.

 

Talk surfaced about Sharon wanting Arafat killed. It was more than talk. His spokesman, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, said his “life is in danger.”

 

Arafat made contact with Arab leaders. He told Al Jazeera, “They either want to kill me, capture me, or expel me, but I tell them I’d rather be martyred.”

 

He accused Israel of terrorizing Palestinians and wanting to scuttle peace efforts. Sharon mobilized reservists. He deployed thousands of troops across the West Bank. Villages and refugee camps were raided.

 

Gun battles broke out in Ramallah and other West Bank cities. Dozens of Palestinians were killed, injured or arrested.

 

Defense Minister Benjamin Ben Eliezer declared Ramallah the “capital of terror.” Military operations would continue, he said. “Nobody is immune to the armed forces as long as that person is labeled a terrorist.”

 

The IDF was told to “strike everywhere.” Destroy “terrorist infrastructure.”

 

“Restraint is dead,” added Eliezer. Arafat’s days were numbered. He was a marked man. Israel decided to murder him.

 

Two previous articles explained. One written on January 2, 2007 headlined “Former Longtime Confident Accuses Ariel Sharon of Assassinating Yasser Arafat.”

 

Uri Dan‘s 2006 book titled “Ariel Sharon: An Intimate Portrait” told what he knew. In 2004, Sharon informed George Bush. He also wanted Arafat removed. He was isolated in his compound. Israel destroyed most of it.

 

On November 11, 2004, Arafat died in Paris. He was 75. In early October he took ill. On October 29, he was flown to France’s Percy Military Hospital. Doctors examining him couldn’t diagnose his illness.

 

On November 3, he slipped into a coma. Eight days later he was dead. French doctors prepared a 558-page report. They claimed death from blood disorder complications.

 

They likely concealed what they knew. They described what they called “disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC).” It causes malignancy and infection, they said.

 

They claimed his blood vessels exhibited small clots. They deplete platelets and clotting factors needed to control bleeding. It can cause death by hemorrhaging.

 

They also called DIC a secondary condition. In other words, it wasn’t the main cause of his illness or death. Something else was responsible. That issue was left unanswered.

 

Arafat’s personal physician, Dr. Ashraf Al Kurdi, believed very likely he was poisoned. At the time, nothing was done to confirm it. Kurdi said Abbas blocked an autopsy. He had coverup in mind.

 

“They didn’t want to do it,” said Kurdi. “When you talked to them about an autopsy they would get fits. (Abbas) said it would disturb relations with France.”

 

In suspected criminal cases, autopsies are automatic. Given the strong possibility that Arafat was poisoned, failure to determine cause of death was unconscionable.

 

In August 2007, Haaretz headlined “Arafat’s doctor: There was HIV in his blood, but poison killed him,” saying:

 

Kurdi said “the virus had been injected into (his) bloodstream close to his death, and that the real cause of (his) death was poison.”

 

Kurdi was Arafat’s personal physician for 18 years. He explained that he’d “usually be summoned to attend to (him) immediately, even when all he had was a simple cold.”

 

“But when his medical situation was really deteriorating, they chose not to call me at all.” He was denied access to his body after he died. He wanted France to set up an inquiry commission.

 

On September 9, 2005, he said “any doctor would tell you that (Arafat’s condition exhibited) symptoms of poisoning.”

 

Haaretz added that “Arab journalists and opinion-shapers have repeatedly accused Israel under former prime minister Ariel Sharon of poisoning Arafat.”

 

On July 4, Al Jazeera headlined “Arafat’s widow (Suha) calls to exhume his body,” saying:

 

“A nine-month investigation suggests that the late Palestinian leader may have been poisoned with polonium.”

 

“Eight years after his death, it remains a mystery exactly what killed the longtime Palestinian leader.”

 

“Tests conducted in Paris found no obvious traces of poison in Arafat’s system. Rumors abound about what might have killed him – cancer, cirrhosis of the liver, even allegations that he was infected with HIV.”

 

“A nine-month investigation by Al Jazeera has revealed that none of those rumors were true: Arafat was in good health until he suddenly fell ill on October 12, 2004.”

 

Arafat’s personal belongings showed traces of deadly polonium. Science Daily calls it “around 109 times” more toxic than hydrogen cyanide. Its main hazard is radioactivity. It’s “most lethal when ingested” or inhaled.

 

Switzerland’s Radiophysique (SR) analyzed Arafat’s belongings. Blood, sweat, saliva and urine samples were obtained. Tests showed abnormal polonium levels in his body when he died.

 

SR director Dr. Francois Bochud said:

 

“I can confirm to you that we measured an unexplained, elevated amount of unsupported polonium-210 in the belongings of Mr. Arafat that contained stains of biological fluids.”

 

SR scientists said further tests “concluded that….between 60 to 80 percent (of the polonium) was ‘unsupported.’ ” It didn’t come from natural sources.

 

Arafat’s widow, Suha, asked Palestinian Authority (PA) officials to exhume his body. If bone, tissue, and/or other bodily evidence substantiates SR’s diagnosis, poisoning will be confirmed.

 

On November 27, Al Jazeera headlined “Yasser Arafat’s body exhumed in Ramallah,” saying:

 

International experts conducted 10 hours of tests. They’ll be shipped overseas for analysis. Jordanian doctor Abdullah Bashir was involved.

 

About 20 samples were obtained, he said. “We have asked (international teams) to test for all poisons, not only for polonium.”

 

PA officials imposed “a near-media blackout.” Arafat family members and lawyers representing his widow, Suha, were excluded from attending his exhumation. No reason was given.

 

Experts examining samples include a French toxicologist, pathologist, and legal medicine generalist. Switzerland’s Radiophysique (SR) is part of the investigation. Russian experts will conduct their own independent analysis.

 

Al Jazeera said if polonium killed Arafat, “very little….will remain at this point. Polonium-210, the isotope found on (his) personal effects, has a half-life of 138 days.”

 

It means half the substances decays “every four-and-a-half months. Scientists say that eight years is about the limit for recovering a useful sample, and a longer delay would have made it impossible to  recover a workable sample.”

 

Tests will take months before findings are announced.

 

Natural polonium “replenishes itself after decaying.” Unsupported polonium from unnatural sources does not.

 

When results are known, French courts will decide what’s next. Arafat died in Paris. France maintains legal jurisdiction.

 

Earlier this year, Suha requested a murder investigation. In August, it was approved. French judges began “collecting Arafat’s medical records and other evidence.” Efforts are proceeding quietly.

 

Al Jazeera said PA security officers harassed their reporters. They tailed them “in cars and on foot, and at one point broke into the network’s hotel rooms.”

 

Abbas is a longtime Israeli collaborator. He may have coverup in mind. He originally blocked an autopsy. Arafat was buried suspiciously fast. It doesn’t happen when foul play is suspected.

 

On November 27, Maan News said PA officials “will start legal proceedings against Israel at the (ICC) if forensic tests prove (Arafat) was murdered.” Chief investigator Tawfiq Tirawi said:

 

“We have evidence and indications that (Arafat) was killed, including remarks by Israeli leaders that they must get rid of Arafat, but we need evidence to submit to the International Criminal Court.”

 

Foul play was suspected all along. Clear evidence is hard to deny. At the same time, responsibility may be hard to prove.

 

Israel will go all-out to prevent it. Washington will help. Expect Abbas to be party to coverup. Longtime collaborators don’t turn a page. They don’t reinvent themselves honorably as saints.

Employees of the Central Intelligence Agency murdered military scientist Frank Olson in 1953 after he raised concerns about testing chemical and biological weapons on human subjects without their consent, according to a lawsuit brought by his two sons.

Eric and Nils Olson, in a complaint filed against the U.S. today in Washington, said the agency has covered up the cause of their father’s death for 59 years. Frank Olson, who the CIA admitted was given LSD a few days before his death, didn’t jump from a 13th floor window of the Statler Hotel in New York City, but rather was pushed, they claim.

“The circumstances surrounding the death mirrored those detailed in an assassination manual that, upon information and belief, the CIA had drafted that same year,” Scott Gilbert, a lawyer for the Olsons, wrote in the complaint.

TSA chief will be a ‘no show’ at congressional hearing

(CNN) — A congressional hearing Thursday on aviation security will be missing its chief witness, who declined to testify.

Transportation Security Administration chief John Pistole had been asked to appear before the Transportation and Infrastructure subcommittee on aviation on the impact of his agency’s policies on passengers and the airline industry.

But Pistole said he had no plans to attend, arguing the panel has no jurisdiction over TSA matters.

The TSA has been regularly criticized over the years by Republicans in the House, especially, for not becoming leaner and more efficient.

“No representative from TSA will be present,” Pistole said in a statement posted on the agency’s website.

Chinese police plan to board ships in disputed seas

November 29, 2012 by  
Filed under World

(Reuters) – Police in the southern Chinese island province of Hainan will board and search ships which enter into what China considers its territorial waters in the disputed South China Sea, state media said on Thursday, a move which could raise tensions further.

The South China Sea is Asia’s biggest potential military trouble spot with several Asian countries claiming sovereignty.

New rules, which come into effect on January 1, will allow Hainan police to board and seize control of foreign ships which “illegally enter” Chinese waters and order them to change course or stop sailing, the official China Daily reported.

“Activities such as entering the island province’s waters without permission, damaging coastal defense facilities and engaging in publicity that threatens national security are illegal,” the English-language newspaper said.

“If foreign ships or crew members violate regulations, Hainan police have the right to take over the ships or their communication systems, under the revised regulations,” it added.

Girl, 8, to get vaccination shots after court overrules mum

November 29, 2012 by  
Filed under Sci-Tech

A GIRL, 8, will be given vaccinations against the objections of her mother after a Family Court ruling.

News of the judgment comes after a group of Australia’s top scientists warned this week that the anti-immunisation lobby was endangering children’s lives.

The Victorian mother, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was resorting to homeopathic methods to try to protect her child against disease.

But the court heard that in 2010, the girl’s father allowed his new wife to take the girl to a medical centre, without her mother’s permission.

There she was immunised for diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis B, polio, HIB, measles, mumps, rubella and meningococcal C.

The father told the court he hoped to continue to “secretly vaccinate” her because he did not want to play “Russian roulette with her health”.

He said he wanted to protect her from infectious diseases, and he was also concerned the child of his new wife, who is now pregnant, could contract a disease from an unvaccinated child.

The mother, who lives with her daughter, said they lived a “simple and healthy way of life’, eating organic and unprocessed food and avoiding toxins.

Ron Paul: Democratic Party, GOP Are Both ‘Dinosaurs’

November 28, 2012 by  
Filed under Americas

Outgoing Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) gave an exit interview to the Washington Post this week, capping off his career with a claim that he’s driven throughout his 36 years in Congress: The two-party system is obsolete.

Responding to a question about a recent warning from his son, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), that the GOP was at risk of becoming a “dinosaur” if it remained unwilling to consider libertarian-inspired positions, the congressman argued that both parties were in fact on the brink of extinction.

“The whole government, and the Democrat party, the Republican party — they’re all dinosaurs,” Paul said. “The principles are dinosaurs. The parties are going to linger because they’re locked in by law. You’re not allowed to compete; the laws are biased against us from competing. If you go third party you can’t get in debates, you can’t get on ballots.”
