10-31-2009 RUSSIA CALLS FOR LIFTING US EMBARGO AGAINST CUBA By Sergei Sayenko Russia’s Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations Mikhail Savostianov said as he addressed the UN General Assembly in New York on Wednesday that Russia expected the US administration and President Barack Obama to take further steps to improve relations with Cuba up to lifting the economic embargo.
'Impossible’ Device Could Propel Flying Cars, Stealth Missiles
The Emdrive is an electromagnetic drive that would generate thrust from a closed system — “impossible” say some experts.
To critics, it’s flat-out junk science, not even worth thinking about. But its inventor, Roger Shawyer, has doggedly continued his work. As Danger Room reported last year, Chinese scientists claimed to validate his math and were building their own version.
Shawyer gave a presentation earlier this week on the Emdrive’s progress at the CEAS 2009 European Air & Space Conference. It answered few questions, but hinted at how the Emdrive might transform spaceflight — and warfare. If the technology works, that is.
The heart of the Emdrive is a resonant, tapered cavity filled with microwaves. According to Shawyer, a relativistic effect generates a net thrust, an effect confirmed by various Emdrives he has built as demonstrations. Critics say that any thrust from the drive must come from another source. Shawyer is adamant that the measured thrust is not caused by other factors.
While the argument over the drive’s impossibility continues, so does the engineering work. The problem is that nobody wants to talk about it. Even Shawyer gives little away.
Last year, professor Yang Juan of the College of Astronautics at Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU) in Xi’an was happy to confirm that they were building an Emdrive which would be tested by the end of the year. But following the publication of this news in Danger Room, the situation changed. I was informed that the publicity was very unwelcome, especially any suggestion that there might be a military application. (Yang had previous published a study on the use of plasma as a weapon against low-orbiting satellites. [.pdf]) No further information has been forthcoming, and no Chinese papers have been published on the Emdrive, though Yang has recently published work on (unrelated)
microwave plasma thrusters (.pdf).
Shawyer asserts that work is also being carried out in France, Russia and in the United States by a major aerospace company. But he cannot provide details beyond vague promises of “significant progress [that] has been made in both theoretical and experimental work, within these groups.” He also asserts that the British National Space Centre is said to be reviewing the Emdrive. Again, no details.
The CEAS 2009 paper outlines recent progress and plans. Previous thrusters generated relatively modest forces; the latest version now being built is based on a cooled superconductor and should generate more than 300 pounds of thrust for a 6-kilowatt input, Shawyer promises. (But does not yet appear to have done so.) The plan is to mount four of these thrusters on an unmanned demonstration vehicle that will weigh about 1,000 pounds. The craft will have no wings: It will be supported by the Emdrives and propelled by jet engines to about 230 knots. It will be capable of vertical takeoff and hovering silently in place. If successful, it will be adapted as a personal transport -– your very own flying car.
In the longer run, perhaps 10 years, Shawyer envisages a hybrid spaceplane using Emdrive technology — see the photo above of a 2-meter scale model. The idea is a craft capable of making the 10,000-mile run from London to Sydney, Australia in under three hours … or taking a 40-ton payload on the moon in about four days.
Aeronautical engineers have been dreaming of such a craft for decades; none have ever panned out. The theoretical advantage of the Emdrive spaceplane compared to rockets is that it allows a slow ascent with low acceleration rate. There is also no telltale rocket exhaust plume, and this may be the source of some of the interest. At present, the launch of a ballistic missile anywhere on Earth can be immediately spotted from space. An Emdrive-based launch system would be undetectable and could arrive from any direction, leaving the target of an attack no way of knowing who to retaliate against.
This is the kind of factor that might drive governments to put money into Emdrive projects. An investment in contested science is not a probable winner — but the payoff could be a big one.

10-27-2009 Hello everyone, I hope that you are all well. Today is turning out to be weird.
10-22-2009 JAR2 asks that you please support the local population of Southend-on-Sea in their fight against the razing of the local market and the loss of a part of the town's heritage, dating back almost 2000 years .
Masonic Hand in Southend-on-Sea Market Closure? Is this Progress?
Closure of York Road Market, Southend-on-Sea
Southend-on-Sea Borough Council, based in Essex, a county in the UK, have made a decision to tear down half of the old historic part of the town, and to possibly replace it with modern buildings. The local radio station and the local newspaper are running campaigns to slow down the potential damage that is expected to be done to the town.
On 16 September 2003, the Council decided to restrict the leases of the market traders, so that they could be evicted quickly when a decision to demolish the market was taken. So it is clear that this plan has been in the works for quite some time.

Mossad/FBI Entrapment Op ("Spy" Catch)
Department of Justice
A criminal complaint unsealed today in the District of Columbia charges Stewart David Nozette, 52, of Chevy Chase, Maryland, with attempted espionage for knowingly and willfully attempting to communicate, deliver, and transmit classified information relating to the national defense of the United States to an individual that Nozette believed to be an Israeli intelligence officer. The complaint does not allege that the government of Israel or anyone acting on its behalf committed any offense under U.S. laws in this case.
Nozette was arrested earlier today by FBI agents and is expected to make his initial appearance tomorrow in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.
"The conduct alleged in this complaint is serious and should serve as a warning to anyone who would consider compromising our nation’s secrets for profit," said David Kris, Assistant Attorney General for National Security.
"Those who would put our nation’s defense secrets up for sale can expect to be vigorously prosecuted," said Channing D. Phillips, Acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia. "This case reflects our firm resolve to hold accountable any individual who betrays the public trust by compromising our national security for his or her own personal gain."
"The FBI is committed to protecting the nation’s classified information and pursuing those who attempt to profit from its release or sale," said Joseph Persichini, Jr., Assistant Director for the FBI’s Washington Field Office.
According to an affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, Nozette received a Ph.D. in Planetary Sciences from MIT in 1983, and worked at the White House on the National Space Council, Executive Office of the President, in 1989 and 1990. He developed the Clementine bi-static radar experiment that purportedly discovered water on the south pole of the moon. Nozette also worked at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory from approximately 1990 to 1999 where he designed highly advanced technology. At the Department of Energy, Nozette held a special security clearance equivalent to the Defense Department Top Secret and Critical Nuclear Weapon Design Information clearances. Department of Energy clearances apply to access to information specifically relating to atomic or nuclear-related materials.
Nozette was also the President, Treasurer and Director of the Alliance for Competitive Technology (ACT), a non-profit corporation that he organized in March 1990. Between January 2000 and February 2006, Nozette, through his company ACT, entered into several agreements to develop advanced technology for the U.S. government. Nozette performed some of this research and development at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C., the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency in Arlington, Virginia, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. From 1989 through 2006, Nozette held security clearances as high as Top Secret and had regular, frequent access to classified information and documents related to the U.S. national defense.
According to the affidavit, on Sept. 3, 2009, Nozette was contacted via telephone by an individual purporting to be an Israeli intelligence officer, but who was in fact an undercover employee of the FBI (UCE). During that call, Nozette agreed to meet with the UCE later that day at a hotel in Washington D.C. According to the affidavit, Nozette met with the UCE that day and discussed his willingness to work for Israeli intelligence.
Nozette allegedly informed the UCE that he had, in the past, held top security clearances and had access to U.S. satellite information. Nozette also allegedly said that he would be willing to answer questions about this information in exchange for money. The UCE explained to Nozette that the Israeli intelligence agency, or "Mossad," would arrange for a communication system so that Nozette could pass information to the Mossad in a post office box. Nozette agreed to provide regular, continuing information to the UCE and asked for an Israeli passport
According to the affidavit, Nozette and the UCE met again on Sept. 4, 2009, in the same hotel. During the meeting, Nozette allegedly informed the UCE that, although he no longer had legal access to any classified information at a U.S. government facility, he could, nonetheless, recall the classified information to which he had been granted access, indicating that it was all still in his head. In the meeting, Nozette allegedly asked when he could expect to receive his first payment, specifying that he preferred to receive cash amounts "under ten thousand" so he didn’t have to report it. At the conclusion of this meeting, Nozette allegedly informed the UCE, "Well I should tell you my first need is that they should figure out how to pay me . . . they don't expect me to do this for free."
On or about Sept. 10, 2009, undercover FBI agents left a letter in the designated post office box for Nozette. In the letter, the FBI asked Nozette to answer a list of questions concerning U.S. satellite information. The undercover agents also provided a $2,000 cash payment for Nozette. The serial numbers of the bills were recorded. Nozette retrieved the questions and the money from the post office the same day.
On or about Sept. 16, 2009, Nozette was captured on videotape leaving a manila envelope in the designated post office box in the District of Columbia. The next day, FBI agents retrieved the sealed manila envelope that Nozette had dropped off and found, among other things, a one-page document containing answers to the questions posed by the undercover agents and an encrypted computer thumb drive. One of answers provided by Nozette contained information classified as Secret, which concerned capabilities of a prototype overhead collection system. In addition, Nozette allegedly offered to reveal additional classified information that directly concerned nuclear weaponry, military spacecraft or satellites, and other major weapons systems.
Also on or about Sept. 17, 2009, undercover FBI agents left a second letter in the post office box for Nozette. In the letter, the FBI asked Nozette to answer another list of questions concerning U.S. satellite information. The FBI also left a cash payment of $9,000 in the post office box. Nozette allegedly retrieved the questions and the money from the post office box later that same day.
On or about October 1, 2009, Nozette was filmed on videotape leaving a manila envelope in the post office box. Later that day, FBI agents retrieved the manila envelope left by Nozette and found a second set of answers from him. The answers contained information classified as both Top Secret and Secret that concerned U.S. satellites, early warning systems, means of defense or retaliation against large-scale attack, communications intelligence information, and major elements of defense strategy.
This investigation was conducted by the FBI’s Washington Field Office with assistance from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the Air Force Office of Special Investigations.
The prosecution is being handled by Trial Attorneys Deborah A. Curtis and Heather M. Schmidt, from the Counterespionage Section of the Justice Department’s National Security Division, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Anthony Asuncion, from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia.
The public is reminded that a criminal complaint contains mere allegations and that every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

October Surprise: Peace Prize to a War Criminal
The Nobel Committee's Twisted Logic in Announcing the Award
Former US President Wanted War Criminal, Current President Nobel Peace Prize Winner
By John Robles II
I don’t get it. Do you? Maybe I missed something. Maybe you can inform me with a bit of inside information or news flash that I may have missed, bring me up to speed, enlighten my, what must be, oh so ignorant grasp of the facts. Maybe you can fill me in, bring me into the loop, inform me on what the great event was that I missed, something so monumentally Earth-shattering that must have been on such a scale that my missing it would mean that I had been living under a rock when it occurred. Surely it must have been some great history making event that warrants giving the new charismatic American President Barrack Obama the penultimate prize given to those who have made fundamental contributions to advancing world peace. Please somebody clue me in. WTF did he get it for?
Is the Nobel Prize Committee now engaged in giving pre-emptive prizes? For are we not living in a pre-emptive world now? There were the pre-emptive wars launched by Obama’s predecessor, pre-emptive arrests, and torture, sanctioned and carried out by the same and continued by the Obama people. There are still hundreds locked up in the infamous, still as yet to be closed,
So please tell me. What has Obama actually “done”? I know I have missed something. I must have. There can be no other explanation.
The jury was out for me when it came to Obama. Of course like the rest of the world I was hopeful and trying hard to believe all his rhetoric about “Change”, but I have been holding my tongue and waiting for him to actually do something before forming my opinion about him.
My own thinking and my personal litmus test was whether part of the Zbingnew Berzhinsky plan of conquering
So what has Obama actually done, please oh please tell me because I am mired down in disappointment and worse yet, disillusion, in thinking about what he has “NOT” done.
Don’t get me wrong, I think it is great that after having a war criminal in charge of the
I just don’t get it. I know what Obama has not done. You and I are living with the effects of his inactivity every day. I have compiled a short list. So without further ado, here is my list of why Obama does not deserve the “Nobel PEACE” Prize. It is because of all these reasons that his receiving it has actually cheapened and lessened the meaning of the prize, and that is tragic.
1. Obama has not gone after anyone in the Bush Administration for war crimes and the slaughter of close to three million human beings. Every death caused by their aggressive war (a crime against humanity) no doubt punishable and chargeable as murder.
2. He has not opened a real investigation into the events of 09-11-2001. Surely something completely worthwhile as the 9-11 commission just towed the previous president’s line.
3. He has not gone after anyone for absconding with $700,000,000,000.00, one of the last crimes of the Bush Administration. The catalyst for our current economic conditions,
4. He has not pulled all US forces out of Iraq or Afghanistan or stopped these wars of aggression.
5. He has not extended habeas corpus rights to detainees in the “war on terror”.
6. He has not cancelled plans for a missile shield around Russia, just made them more mobile.
7. He has not captured or killed Tom Ossman, ex CIA agent, Ossama Bin Laden.
8. He has not closed the illegal prison at Guantanamo Bay Cuba, nor released those being held there for “preventive” reasons.
9. He has not gone after Blackwater or Halliburton for their crimes against humanity.
10. He has not done away with unconstitutional provisions in the “Patriot” Act, which strip many basic fundamental human rights from US Citizens.
11. He has done nothing to reduce the “Police State” tactics used by the US to control almost every facet of life, from racial profiling to preventive detention to preventive execution sought against those illegally held in Guantanamo.
12. He has not prosecuted anyone for torture or the crimes against humanity associated with torture and extraordinary rendition programs.
13. He has not dealt with the TSA no-fly list or given justification why over one million Americans are on it, most of whom are average innocent citizens.
14. He has not made corporations or the rich liable for their share of the tax burden.
15. He has not solved the world economic crisis brought on by US crimes and policies nor has he caused economic prosperity in the US.
16. He has not done anything to stop nuclear proliferation or the spread and escalation of weapons of mass destruction.
17. He has not solved the Palestinian issue or caused peace between those holding different religious beliefs worldwide, the biggest source throughout history for wars and massive casualties.
18. He has not gone after Georgia in any way for attacking, with US support, the peaceful citizens yearning to breathe free of South Ossetia, and murdering over a thousand of them.
19. Now moving into internal US policy. First on this list would be the fact that he has not brought about true racial equality.
20. He has done nothing to reinstate Affirmative Action programs or stop racial profiling as US Government policy at all levels.
21. He has not provided health care to Americans or solved inequalities in this area.
22. He has not solved educational disparities and inequality in the sphere of education.
23. He has not solved the housing problem in the US or provided all Americans with homes.
24. He has not done away with the death penalty or looked into why more than 1 in 100 Americans, or approximately 40,000,000, are in prison.
25. He has done nothing to help the poor or the destitute.
26. He has done nothing to help the American Indians who remain marginalized, forgotten, and prisoners in their own nation.
27. He has done nothing to help those wrongfully profiled or suffering persecution because of Machiavellian US government policies, and paranoid prejudices, including yours truly.
28. He has not made the CIA, the FBI, or US “Intelligence” accountable or more transparent.
29. He has not separated Church and State nor done anything to advance the freedoms of those holding “marginal” faiths or beliefs.
30. He has not caused or fostered policies that have led to great Scientific or Medical advances.
31. He has not helped children or advanced children’s rights.
32. He has done nothing to reduce the “police state” or reduce the level of confrontational mentality and fear the police use in their attempts to control the masses.
33. He has done nothing earth shaking to reduce consumption or the creation of green house gasses and or pollution. Nor has he been instrumental in bring about the wide use of alternative energy sources.
34. He has done nothing to advance freedom of speech rights, allow peaceful protest, protect journalists, or allow real dissent.
35. He has done nothing huge to protect or benefit US soldiers and their families who continue to pay the ultimate price for misguided US policies.
So what has Obama really done? We can all agree that he has opened dialogues with Russia and dozens of other countries, but this should be what any president must do, however after eight years of Bush and his isolationist pre-emptive war strategy, simple normal diplomatic relations seems to be something so out of the norm that perhaps in our 10 second attention span world this should merit recognition.
So what has he really done? He has through clever marketing, image control, propaganda, clever speeches, and his own personality and intelligence given the world HOPE! Hope for change. Hope for a peaceful world. Hope for justice. Hope for accountability. Hope for beauty and the propagation and survival of the human race. Hope for change.
What are we going to say when change never occurs? Where is the outcry that promised change has not occurred? Will it not be the penultimate crime against humanity to give the world and all its billions of inhabitants HOPE and then dash that hope against the rocks and corpse ridden landscape that is the status quo?
For this humble nobody of a writer the jury is still out on Obama. I am still waiting for the promised “CHANGE”. So far, it is hard to fathom.

10-05-2009 Later today there will be a small watershed moment for worker rights, for employee rights, for any sense of anti-corruption, and for immigrant rights here in Russia. In a court in the City of Lubertsy, a judge may decide the case of a foreign employee who spent thirteen years working for a firm which was taken over by local criminals and then unjustly let go after having his wages held back, not being paid for several months, and then being made the target of a campaign of character assassination, threats and intimidation after taking them to court. Today may be the final day in court. The result will be a very good indicator as to the climate that exists in Russia for foreign companies, foreign workers, honest individuals, and how serious the government is on fighting corruption and banditism. I will keep you all informed. Unfortunately the outcome does not look very good at this point but we are keeping our fingers crossed and hoping that truth wins and that in the land of the Proletariat the worker still has some rights.

CIA Launching Surge
09-18-2009 Came out of work at one of my jobs a couple hours ago and found that someone had shattered my windshield, since I have no more enemies, we believe it can only be one guy, how about it Yura Sologub? I think it is about time you were, let's say, arrested? I am really tired of this guy. To put it mildly. They danced around on the hood too. So who is going to pay for the damage? Why me of course. This is Russia as everybody tells me. I wanted to go to the police but everyone says, this is Russia. They won't do anything and in reality that is true. So what can I do? Nothing. If anyone has any information please e-mail me. This happened in front of the Vechni Ogna in Lubertsy on the 18th of September between 20:00 and 21:37. I can not afford to fix it so if anyone out there would be kind enough to help me out I would appreciate it very much. E-Mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are new to jar2 read the archives about my running legal battle with a two bit hood Yura Sologub, and my former employer Center Razvita Lichnosti, in Malahovka, which was a BKC school which was taken over, where I worked for 13 years and in the end was made to work like a slave and when I demanded my pay I was illegally terminated. I took them to court to try to get part of the 684,00.00 rubles they owe me, but will they pay? No, everyone says. This is Russia. I follow the law and lead an honest life and this is what I get. Wonderful. So look. A picture is worth a thousand words. What are you going to tell me? This is Russia? Beautiful. By the way this happened on the CIA's birthday. Conspiracy? No. This is Russia. I still love it here but things are getting bad. Or I should say they have been bad for quite a while. I know I should shut up but I am tired of shutting up. I wonder how much this cost them? Am I afraid? I guess I should be intimidated but I am not. I am disgusted. Do I really think anyone cares or that anyone is going to help? No I don't. Do I think certain people are laughing about this and I am helping their cause? Maybe. Could it be someone down at the Embassy? Maybe. Could it be associated with my site? I don't know. Could the bomb scare in front of my window last week which I was told to be quiet about and which had half the neighborhood in a complete lock down have something to do with this? Maybe. Is someone trying to scare me? I think, definitely. Am I? No. It takes a lot to scare a Taino Indian. A Have a nice day)))

Fascists Becoming a Problem in Britain
9-11: An Inside Job. The Damning Proof? Unignited Thermite
09-09-2009 Their paths crossed in a strange Darwinian twist of fate, the retelling of which deserved the gravity of tales told during the greatest ages of literature, a story more akin to the romantic classics of those bygone days, ages ago, than to the hyper speed 5 second attention span media overload that was the world of 2009.
The accused KGB spy who was living alone, lonely and heartbroken, trying to cope with a life that had been shattered, struggling to right the wrongs meted out on him by an overzealous agency that had been hell bent on justifying their own existence by proving there were spies to be had and ones to be caught and not caring if the innocent were made into the guilty or whether hundreds of lives were destroyed in the process, sat and thought. Or had it been something more sinister? Was the director of MI-5 herself a plant? Was she an agent groomed from the very day of her recruitment in the hot humid climes of India during the waning days of British Empire, planted in order to get to the position of director, with access to the real secrets of the crown? Secrets she would give to her controllers, ideologically holding views akin to hers on the fairness and equality of women, and who convinced her with the very unarguable justice and equality behind their ideology that it was the right thing to do.
09-04-2009 CIA Conducted Illegal Human Experimentation Human experimentation without consent has been prohibited in any setting since 1947, when the Nuremberg Code, which resulted from the prosecution of Nazi doctors, set down 10 sacrosanct principles. The code states that voluntary consent of subjects is essential and that all unnecessary physical and mental suffering should be avoided. The Geneva conventions also ban medical experiments on prisoners and prisoners of war, which they describe as "grave breaches". Under CIA guidelines, doctors and psychologists were required to be present during the use of so-called enhanced interrogation techniques on detainees.
Ted Kennedy Passes Away/CIA Inspector General's Report
CIA Secret Prison in Lithuania
American HATE America The Violent - 1969? Arthur Schlesinger Jr. “We are today the most frightening people on this planet. The ghastly things we do to our own people, the ghastly things we do to other people, these must at least compel us to look searchingly at ourselves and our society before hatred and violence rushes on to more evil, and finally tear our nation apart. . . . we cannot blame the epidemic of murder at home on deranged and solitary individuals, separate from the rest of us. For these individuals are plainly weak and suggestible men stamped by our society with a birth rite of hatred and a compulsion toward violence. We must recognize, I believe that the evil is in us, that it springs from some dark intolerable tension in our history and our institutions. It is almost as though some primal curse had been fixed on our nation. We are a violent people with a violent history, and the instinct for violence has seeped into the bloodstream of our national life.”

The Russian mafia was formed under the thieves law or vory v zakone in 1924 by prisoners of Russian gulags. These criminals came together to form a society that could more effectively carry out conspiracies and control the region, they were not a blood family but merely an organization. The Russian Mafia is a very secretive mob. If a member snitches about a crime not only will he be killed but his entire family as well
Postscript: The real issue here is not the fact that he was engaged in illicit sex during his free time but that he was apparently unaware for hours and perhaps days or months that he was being followed, video taped and his cell phone conversations were being recorded. As the official CIA resident he should have been aware and have taken counter measures. Such entrapment and "honey trap" operations are common and are usually used to blackmail individuals of interest. Apparently Mr. Hatcher was not blackmailable, or was of no interest to those who filmed him any longer.
