NEW YORK Three years after her difficult departure from The New York Times, Judith Miller says she still misses some of the people she worked with and the "excitement of the newsroom." She also says the Times remains "indispensable."

But in today's difficult economic atmosphere, she is glad to be out of the newspaper game at a time when cutbacks and shorter stories are the norm. "The Times has been so gloomy, they have gotten rid of the Metro section," Miller said Monday in a cell phone interview. "It is a very challenging time for our business. Look at the disappearance of The [New York] Sun - it was a very useful addition, whatever you thought of their politics."

Miller, who left the paper in 2005 after 28 years, spoke as word spread of her latest new job, as a commentator for Fox News. Miller said she will be on air and on the Web site part-time discussing First Amendment and free speech issues, as well as foreign policy and national security.

Starting A Mass Trend - 58 Year Old Janine Bonepath May Set The Stage By Attempted Citizen's Arrest

Just as Luke Rudowski started a mass movement on that faithful day he so courageously stood up in front of all those globalists and confronted Zbigniew Brzezinski to his face about his global crimes, maybe Janine Bonepath will set a new trend along the lines of "Citizen's Arrests"...

If just a couple more people try this, it may snowball and lead to actual arrests. It takes balls to do what she did. She has courage!

Even though the MSM will promote it as "nutter" activity, the general public en mass generally agrees with it and will NOT be trended by the media into thinking this kind of citizen's arrest is bad. The public will eat this up right now because most people do agree that many people need to be arrested, they are just not quite sure exactly who yet.

We shall see if Janine Bonepath will go down in the history books as a trend setting icon, as Luke Rudowski has in the birth of We Are Change and it's "in yo face" style of journalism.

Who knows, maybe in one year these people will be afraid to speak in public in fear of arrest...

Only time will tell

I am not saying that I encourage someone going out and trying to arrest public officials..

side-by-side comparison of the collapse of WTC7 (Youtube)

The collapse of New York's World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001 is arguably one of the most well documented events in human history. Less well documented is the controversy over why the buildings fell as they did.

At the time of writing, 357 architectural and engineering professionals have signed a petition which directly challenges the National Institute of Standards & Training's official finding that the destruction of these massive buildings was caused solely by structural damage from the impact of jet airliners and the resulting fires.

The petition, demanding of Congress a truly independent investigation, states, in part:

"...the 9/11 investigation must include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives that may have been the actual cause behind the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers and WTC Building 7."

In Awe of 9/11: The Time Has Come to Expose the Man Behind the Curtain

By Timothy Welton Cavanaugh

As perverted and grotesque as they were we must stand in awe to the conception and execution of the 9/11 attacks and the post-9/11 chess moves that have turned this country, even the entire world, completely upside-down. Beyond the true awesome power the effect of a terrorist event of that magnitude would have on a people – effectively making them so malleable as to accept any action(s) from their government that even suggested a return to a state of security – the choice of targets alone and which ones were and weren’t to be hit and why was genius.

Biden to Supporters: "Gird Your Loins", For the Next President "It's Like Cleaning Augean Stables"

October 20, 2008 7:35 AM

ABC News' Matthew Jaffe Reports: Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., on Sunday guaranteed that if elected, Sen. Barack Obama., D-Ill., will be tested by an international crisis within his first six months in power and he will need supporters to stand by him as he makes tough, and possibly unpopular, decisions.

Chertoff: Change in U.S. President May Spur Terror Plot

http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601103&sid=a7MuiagBPMz4&refer=us

Oct. 22 (Bloomberg) -- Terrorists may see the change to a new U.S. president over the next six months as a prime chance to attack, no matter who wins the White House, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said.

``Any period of transition creates a greater vulnerability, meaning there's more likelihood of distraction,'' Chertoff said in an interview yesterday. ``You have to be concerned it will create an operational opportunity for terrorists.''

The risk is the same whether Democrat Barack Obama or Republican John McCain is elected president on Nov. 4, he said. That comment undercuts McCain's argument that the U.S. would be more in danger of an attack if Obama, 47, wins.

McCain, 72, has been citing remarks by Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden on Oct. 19 that ``it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy,'' should Obama win the White House.

911 Documents/Mukasey Subpoenaed

Found this posted on opednews, thought it might be interesting. It appears Attorney General Michael Mukasey has been subpoenaed by the Senate Judiciary Committee. Hard to say what will actually come of it, seeing the effectiveness of previous subpoenas such as to Karl Rove etc.. Of course, there's also executive privilege to get around. I see that in the first statement, it is requested that all documents be unredacted. The hearing is to take place November 18, 2008 at 10:00 am. Hopefully there will be some CSPAN coverage that can be posted. We'll see if there is any MSM coverage but I'm not holding my breath for any. Here is the list of documents being requested according to the subpoena:

1. To provide the Committee with all documents constituting the legal analysis and advice the
Department of Justice's Office of Legal Counsel ("OLC") provided to any agency, office, entity,
or officer of the Executive Branch from September 11,2001 to the present, concerning the
Administration's national security practices and policies related to terrorism, and any related
document: including complete and unredacted versions of the following:

Joint Chiefs of Staff hold meetings at Lake Placid then Finland

The October 18 Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports "Powerful generals and admirals from some of the most powerful nations on Earth are reportedly meeting somewhere in the local area this weekend after flying into the Adirondack Regional Airport in Lake Clear on Friday."
http://adirondackdailyenterprise.com/page/content.detail/id/503035.html?nav=5008&showlayout=0

A subsequent October 20 article in the Lake Placid News adds that the officials met in Whiteface Lodge under tight security (and secrecy)
http://www.lakeplacidnews.com/page/content.detail/id/500578.html

On October 21, another local paper, The Press Republican quotes Capt. John Kirby, a special assistant to Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, confirming that the top military leaders from five countries - the fifth being Italy - met in Lake Placid to discuss "mutual security issues, including Afghanistan", the meeting apparently scheduled a month in advance

The Power of the DVD to break through emotional barriers

For the last four years I have been trying to convince my brother, who lives 12 000 miles away in England, that 9/11 was an inside job. Even 'The New Pearl Harbor' was insufficient to convince him, because, apparently, 'somebody would have gone public by now'. A couple of days after my brother arrived for a short holiday, I showed him the DVD 'Orwell Rolls in his Grave', which shows how the corporate media are not the least bit interested in doing anything that would threaten the power structure of the U.S.
He was shocked, and I then followed this up with '9/11 Mysteries' and the latest edition of 'Blueprint for Truth'. The scales having fallen from his eyes, he has returned to the U.K. armed with a 9/11 Truth t-shirt and a collection of DVDs and a determination to spread the message.
I share this with you in the belief that it is not just a matter of distributing 9/11 DVDs - it is equally important to attack the emotional barriers that lead people to refuse even to look at the evidence. 'Orwell Rolls in his Grave' does just that, and 'Outfoxed' is an excellent follow-up.

The End of America - A new documentary from Naomi Wolf

The End of America - 75 minutes.

http://www.snagfilms.com/films/title/the_end_of_america/

“My sense of alarm comes from the clear lessons from history that, once certain checks and balances are destroyed, and once certain institutions have been intimidated, the pressures that can turn an open society into a closed one turn into direct assaults; at that point events tend to occur very rapidly, and a point comes at which there is no easy turning back to the way it used to be.”

Cynthia McKinney: 5000 Prisoners executed by gunshot during Katrina!

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=YbEEyTIVKMI

*The Unaccounted Deaths of Hurricane Katrina and its Aftermath*

While serving in her sixth term in the House of Representatives, Cynthia McKinney was one of only a handful of the Democrats who participated in the proceedings of the U.S. House Select Bipartisan Committee to Investigate the Preparation for and Response to Hurricane Katrina, chaired by Rep. Tom Davis of Virginia. Democratic Party leadership claimed that the investigation would be partisan and biased, and therefore instructed Members not to join the Committee. Rep. McKinney chose to defy Speaker Pelosi's decision because she felt that the issues that would arise out of any investigation were too serious to ignore.

Biden: "Watch. We're going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."

JOE BIDEN'S FEARS

October 21, 2008
Posted: 4:08 am
October 21, 2008

Joe Biden wonders whether Barack Obama is qualified to be commander-in-chief.

"Mark my words," Biden warned Sunday at a Democratic fund-raiser. "It will not be six months [after the inauguration] before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy."

Then he added, "Watch. We're going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."

Now, here's where it gets scary.

Obama's "gonna need your help to use your influence within the community to stand with him. Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right."

He's going to need help?

Terrific.

What's particularly disturbing is Biden's Kennedy analogy.

For those who don't recall, it was a scant five months after JFK became president that Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev took his measure.

9/11: Total Proof Bombs Were Planted-Do You Agree?

There is a Poll over at opednews.com. For what its worth, Go vote.

http://www.opednews.com/maxwrite/page_poll.php?pid=244

9/11: Total Proof Bombs Were Planted-Do You Agree?

CAREFUL CONSIDERATION indicates bombs were planted, then detonated and brought down all 3 WTC buildings on 9/11 in mere seconds.

Some of the steel structural columns of the World Trade Center towers, weighing 40 tons, were blasted sideways with such velocity that they stuck in the facades of other buildings hundreds of feet away. It's impossible for a collapse caused only by fire and gravity to have done that. In fact it was done by explosives, which had to have been planted in the towers beforehand.
