As Big Peace readers–and Rush Limbaugh listeners–know, at last Sunday’s Coalition to Honor Ground Zero’s rally, I watched an ABC News crew stand by, ready to film, while one of their co-workers tried to provoke an angry or violent reaction at a New York rally protesting the Ground Zero mosque.

ABC News announced late yesterday that they had “reprimanded” the still unnamed audio man who was representing ABC News at the Ground Zero rally. Transparency is an elusive quality at ABC.

ABC News spokesman Jeffrey Schneider tells TVNewser the network has looked into Lafferty’s complaint and agrees that the tech “aggressively” questioned members of the crowd with his personal camera.

After a lengthy conversation with Jeffrey Schneider myself, I am even more alarmed at how casually ABC treats its responsibility to attempt to be truthful and accurate. In covering the Ground Zero rally, the ABC News representatives were neither.

Mr. Schneider’s bottom line was to argue that no footage which was the product of ABC’s harassing effort appeared in their final coverage. I asked: what if the ABC News harassment of the people at the rally had been successful, would footage of “an angry mob” have been included in that night’s news program?

“I don’t deal in hypothetical situations,” was Mr. Schneider’s response.

Whether or not the situation was officially sanctioned by ABC News–and I’m pretty certain it wasn’t–the crew on the scene did its best to provoke the man at the rally. Their failure to get “angry mob” footage was why there was none in the report that finally aired. ABC News deserves no credit for not using bogus footage. After all, they seemed to try very hard, but were finally unable to stage a show for their viewers, even at the risk of creating an incident which could have mushroomed into violence.

It is important to note, of course, that the media’s lust for scenes of violence or contention only go one way; they have been totally uninterested in actual and substantial violence and far-out anti-American, anti-Semitic rhetoric and signs that were common at leftist protests throughout the presidency of George W. Bush.

~Sure different then Glenn’s Restoring Honor isn’t it?! AGAIN, the radicals do what they ‘try’ & pin on us! ~JP

Mr. Schneider said he thought I was imagining some sort of “conspiracy” but you don’t have to see black helicopters to know that ABC News’ reaction to the situation borders on indifference. Journalists should not make-up news and they should not try to “improve” film footage when the real thing doesn’t have enough action. That ethic may be appropriate for some cheesy reality program on an obscure cable channel, but it has no place on a national network which purports to be serious about news reporting.

News reporters are told in journalism school to approach each subject with a “healthy skepticism.” From now on I am skeptical about what ABC News tells me occurred in the world that day.

ABC News should not just reprimand the contract employee (who actually did the provoking), but fire him along with the two other ABC New employees who stood by and watched him do it. The cameraman was standing nearby, poised and ready to record.

Press for Truth proudly presents “United We Fall”

United We Fall is a film which explores the agenda for a North American Union and a One World Government. We present information from all sides of the issue by speaking with both politicians and academics as well as investigative journalists and political activists.
Will a North American Union be beneficial to you and your family, or will it be the downfall of three sovereign nations?
You be the Judge.

The End Game & the North American Union

United We Fall, a documentary by Bryan Law and Dan Dicks, breaks down the North American Union and how “free trade” agreements between the United States, Canada, and Mexico are impoverishing people and stripping away national sovereignty.

The North American Union is often dismissed by the corporate media and academics as a baseless conspiracy theory. United We Fall documents in detail its existence and beginnings under the direction of the renowned globalist David Rockefeller in the mid-60s with the establishment of the Council of the Americas.

The documentary covers the establishment of the European Union, the creation of the euro, and the concept of a world monetary system under the control of central bankers. The Federal Reserve system is explored. “This whole New World Order ideation is a bunch of banking and intellectual elites that basically see the same sort of mentality. Control of the economy, control of the issuance of currency, you control the nation,” explains medical doctor and neuroscientist Andrew Moulde in the film.

Law and Dick counterpoint the engineers and apologists for a North American Union — who routinely discount the “conspiracy” of any such union — with informed critics who spell out in chilling detail how the elite are methodically working to foist their dream of world government on the people of the planet. United We Fall also covers the secretive Bilderbergers — consisting of presidents, prime ministers, international bankers — and their ongoing plot to establish world government.

Interviews featured in the film include Robert Pastor (Council on Foreign Relations), Allan Gotlieb (Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg) Herbert Grubel (Creator of the “Amero”) Luke Rudkowski (We Are Change) Dan Dicks (Press For Truth) Vijay Sarma (Political Activist, Independent Journalist) Dr. Andrew Moulden (Canadian Action Party) Richard Syrett (Talk Radio Host).

United We Fall

Three Nations.
Two Sides.
One Union.

Conveniently in 12 parts-WATCH here-It is IMPORTANT that you do, even if you are already familiar with the North American Union

President Obama abandoned his campaign promise to renegotiate NAFTA and is continuing the SPP working groups. His apparent contempt for American patriotism and admiration for America’s enemies gives further cause for alarm. The “godfather” of the NAU, Robert Pastor stated in August 2009 that 2010 will be the year Obama and the Mexican and Canadian leaders proclaim the “grand vision for North America.”

Write and call your Senators and Congressmen, urging them to oppose all efforts to continue the SPP, merge the nations, create the Amero or other U.N./non-American currency, stop the NAFTA Superhighway, and secure our borders.

This Conservative Roundtable interview of Jerome Corsi by Howard Phillips reveals how behind closed doors, the US government collaborates with the governments of Mexico and Canada to merge the three nations into one Socialist mega-state: the “North American Union” (NAU), also known as the “Security and Prosperity Partnership” (SPP). Mr. Corsi is an investigative journalist for where you can find many of his articles exposing the NAU; and he is a best selling author of many books including “Obama Nation.”

Freedom and our Constitution will have no place in this grim Orwellian future. The Dollar will be scrapped for the “Amero” formed by including Mexican and Canadian currencies (or a global currency led by Red China, Russia and Venezuela) and Socialist economic policies.

There will be no First and Second Amendments and no limit on the power of government. This is following the exact same path as merging Europe into the EU; abandoning sovereignty for Socialist conformity, and assigning convenience a far higher priority than freedom. The leaders of the US, Mexico and Canada meet every year in secret summits: 2009 in Guadalajara Mexico, 2008 in New Orleans, & 2007 in Montebello Canada; each time advancing the cause of surrendering the nation our founding fathers built to secure our freedom.

Behind the scenes, the shadow government bureaucrats and corporate profiteers meet in “working groups” including the National Competitiveness Council (NACC), SPP, and other entities to incrementally “integrate” and “harmonize” the US with Mexico and Canada in the direction of the European Union.

One of the prime architects of the NAU, Robert Pastor, has discussed how another 9/11 crisis could be used to force through the merger–in other words, you and even Congress won’t even have a voice in this outrageous surrender of our country–unless we all act NOW to have Congress outlaw any Presidential actions which would lead to such a merger of our nations in any way.

Could the current financial crisis be intended to create the emergency to dissolve our nation and the Dollar?

Canadian citizens would lose their independence as well to their southern neighbors under the NAU – in Canada the scheme is known as “Deep Integration.” America’s former borders would be wide open to drug smuggling and terrorists. Mexico could suffer a catastrophic brain-and-labor-drain as all Mexican citizens by right could move to the U.S. & Canada. Leaders in both major U.S. parties as well as the ruling parties in Mexico and Canada are determined to wipe out your freedom, unless you act now. This is why Obama refuses to secure the border–he wants to abolish it!

The NAFTA Superhighway/Trans Texas Corridor (TTC) is being built as part of the NAU to serve the Chinese so they can unload ships using cheaper Mexican dockworkers and use Mexican trucks and trains instead of American port workers and American trucks/trains.

We wish to reach our friends in Canada and Mexico to warn them of the dangers of the SPP/NAU to their independence and future:

Arrêter l’Union de l’Amérique du Nord.
Partenariat Nord-Américain pour la Sécurité et la Prospérité (PSP).
Poner fin a la unión de América del Norte.
Alianza para la Seguridad y la Prosperidad en América del Norte (ASPAN).

As President Obama prepares to tie a bow on U.S. combat operations in Iraq, Congressional Budget Office numbers show that the total cost of the eight-year war was less than the stimulus bill passed by the Democratic-led Congress in 2009.

According to CBO numbers in its Budget and Economic Outlook published this month, the cost of Operation Iraqi Freedom was $709 billion for military and related activities, including training of Iraqi forces and diplomatic operations.

The projected cost of the stimulus, which passed in February 2009, and is expected to have a shelf life of two years, was $862 billion.

The U.S. deficit for fiscal year 2010 is expected to be $1.3 trillion, according to CBO. That compares to a 2007 deficit of $160.7 billion and a 2008 deficit of $458.6 billion, according to data provided by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget.

In 2007 and 2008, the deficit as a percentage of gross domestic product was 1.2 percent and 3.2 percent, respectively.

“Relative to the size of the economy, this year’s deficit is expected to be the second largest shortfall in the past 65 years; 9.1 percent of gross domestic product (GDP), exceeded only by last year’s deficit of 9.9 percent of GDP,” CBO wrote.

The CBO figures show that the most expensive year of the Iraq war was in 2008, the year when the surge proposed by Gen. David Petraeus and approved by President Bush was in full swing and the turning point in the war. The total cost of Iraq operations in 2008 was $140 billion. In 2007, the cost of Iraq operations was $124 billion.

According to an analysis by the American Thinker’s Randall Hoven, the cost of the Iraq war from 2003-2008 — when Bush was in office — was $20 billion less than the cost of education spending and less than a quarter of the cost of Medicare spending during that same period.

The Discovery Channel MUST broadcast to the world their commitment to save the planet and to do the following IMMEDIATELY:

1. The Discovery Channel and it’s affiliate channels MUST have daily television programs at prime time slots based on Daniel Quinn’s “My Ishmael” pages 207-212 where solutions to save the planet would be done in the same way as the Industrial Revolution was done, by people building on each other’s inventive ideas. Focus must be given on how people can live WITHOUT giving birth to more filthy human children since those new additions continue pollution and are pollution. A game show format contest would be in order. Perhaps also forums of leading scientists who understand and agree with the Malthus-Darwin science and the problem of human overpopulation. Do both. Do all until something WORKS and the natural world starts improving and human civilization building STOPS and is reversed! MAKE IT INTERESTING SO PEOPLE WATCH AND APPLY SOLUTIONS!!!!

2. All programs on Discovery Health-TLC must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions. In those programs’ places, programs encouraging human sterilization and infertility must be pushed. All former pro-birth programs must now push in the direction of stopping human birth, not encouraging it.

3. All programs promoting War and the technology behind those must cease. There is no sense in advertising weapons of mass-destruction anymore. Instead, talk about ways to disassemble civilization and concentrate the message in finding SOLUTIONS to solving global military mechanized conflict. Again, solutions solutions instead of just repeating the same old wars with newer weapons. Also, keep out the fraudulent peace movements. They are liars and fakes and had no real intention of ending the wars. ALL OF THEM ARE FAKE! On one hand, they claim they want the wars to end, on the other, they are demanding the human population increase. World War II had 2 Billion humans and after that war, the people decided that tripling the population would assure peace. WTF??? STUPIDITY! MORE HUMANS

4. Civilization must be exposed for the filth it is. That, and all its disgusting religious-cultural roots and greed. Broadcast this message until the pollution in the planet is reversed and the human population goes down! This is your obligation.

NBC News has confirmed that the alleged gunman who has invaded the Discovery Building in Silver Spring, Md., is James Jay Lee, a man with a history of environmental extremism targeting the Discovery Channel. As his website read in 2008, Lee endorsed the views of Turner Tomorrow Fellowship Award-winning author Daniel Quinn. Quinn’s 1998 novel, “My Ishmael,” inspired controversy over its claims about population growth and global food supply — claims endorsed by Lee.

1. The Discovery Channel and it’s affiliate channels MUST have daily television programs at prime time slots based on Daniel Quinn’s “My Ishmael” pages 207-212 where solutions to save the planet would be done in the same way as the Industrial Revolution was done, by people building on each other’s inventive ideas. Focus must be given on how people can live WITHOUT giving birth to more filthy human children since those new additions continue pollution and are pollution.

This afternoon, a man carrying a gun and what appeared to be two tanks strapped to his back walked into Discovery Channel’s headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland, fired off a couple rounds and took a hostage. Little is known about the man thus far. Except that his name is James Lee, an Asian man with a years-long vendetta against the cable network who may live just up the road from us.

In 2008, Lee was arrested for disorderly conduct by Montgomery County police after a lengthy protest outside of the company’s headquarters. Lee was upset by what he saw as a pro-capitalist, anti-environmental agenda in Discovery’s shows.

Lee spent thousands of dollars in local newspapers advertising the protest. He also hired homeless people to stand next to him to make it appear as if he had a larger group of demonstrators and threw money into the air while saying “money is nothing, money is trash.”

Lee’s extended Manifesto JUST Must read his insanity

5. Immigration: Programs must be developed to find solutions to stopping ALL immigration pollution and the anchor baby filth that follows that. Find solutions to stopping it. Call for people in the world to develop solutions to stop it completely and permanently. Find solutions FOR these countries so they stop sending their breeding populations to the US and the world to seek jobs and therefore breed more unwanted pollution babies. FIND SOLUTIONS FOR THEM TO STOP THEIR HUMAN GROWTH AND THE EXPORTATION OF THAT DISGUSTING FILTH! (The first world is feeding the population growth of the Third World and those human families are going to where the food is! They must stop procreating new humans looking for nonexistant jobs!)

8. Saving the Planet means saving what’s left of the non-human Wildlife by decreasing the Human population. That means stopping the human race from breeding any more disgusting human babies! You’re the media, you can reach enough people. It’s your resposibility because you reach so many minds!!!


UPDATE: I looked at Twitter-nothing. There are a few hits on FB & I found this video on YouTube:

* I have done some digging friends.

A California man leading a demonstration outside the Silver Spring headquarters of Discovery Communications was arrested for disorderly conduct Thursday after several hours of throwing money into the air to gather a crowd. James Jay Lee, 40, of San Diego was also charged with littering for throwing what police said were thousands of dollars worth of bills at a crowd that grew after Lee began paying people to participate.

His website is overloaded

Silver Spring, Maryland, January 31, 2008 - Taking an unusual stance, the protest organizers are calling to public attention how the Discovery Channel fails to create a real sense of urgency around the crisis our planet is undergoing. James Lee, founder for the group, is asking all interested supporters to meet him in front of the Discovery Channel building for a civil protest. The Protest will be from 9am-9pm, February 15 to February 23, 2008 in Silver Spring, MD at the corner of Georgia and Wayne Ave in front of the corporate headquarters.

~”One of the things that we are taught is never to say somebody will go to hell or somebody will go to heaven. It is up to God to decide.”

– Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, when asked if suicide bombers go to Heaven, on Barbara Walters’ 2006 TV Special on Heaven.

* From the Editor of FSM

Defenders of controversial imam Feisal Abdul Rauf have been touting his past efforts in offering counterterrorism advice to the FBI as a way to illustrate his bridge-building intentions. Much like other reports, they tend to gloss over the more controversial aspects of Rauf’s statements. But, as is typical with the Ground Zero mosque imam, it can be demonstrated that he is frequently speaking with a forked tongue.

There is no doubt that Rauf has made some questionable and incendiary comments regarding America and her role in the Muslim world. Perhaps these statements fit the imam’s overall rhetoric involving U.S. complicity in the attacks of 9/11. As does the following statement to the FBI, which is conveniently omitted from media reports defending Rauf.

Bridge-building imam Feisal Abdul Rauf was giving a crash course in Islam for FBI agents in March of 2003. When asked to clarify such terminology as ‘jihad’ and ‘fatwa’, Rauf stated (emphasis mine throughout):

“Jihad can mean holy war to extremists, but it means struggle to the average Muslim. Fatwah has been interpreted to mean a religious mandate approving violence, but is merely a recommendation by a religious leader. Rauf noted that the U.S. response to the Sept. 11 attacks could be considered a jihad, and pointed out that a renowned Islamic scholar had issued a fatwah advising Muslims in the U.S. military it was okay to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan.”

Well, wait a minute.

Which version of the word jihad is he referring to when he speaks of the U.S. response itself? Is it the struggle he speaks of for the average Muslim, or is it the holy war?

Getting very little run in the media is an analysis of Rauf’s FBI days in the New York Post. Contained within Paul Sperry’s column is a question of whether Rauf actually knows the definition of jihad, or if he simply presents things ambiguously to make things more difficult on the agents he is trying to teach. While Rauf passes jihad off as nothing more than a struggle, Koranic scholar Abdullah Yusuf Ali disagrees, insisting that jihad ‘means advancing Islam, including by physically fighting Islam’s enemies.’

Sperry then questions, ‘If he (Rauf) believes jihad is really just an internal struggle, then why does he refuse to condemn Hamas? (Why, for that matter, did he in late 2001 suggest that “US policies were an accessory to the crime” of 9/11?).’

And speaking of the fatwa advising Muslims in the U.S. military that it was okay to fight the Taliban …

The renowned Islamic scholar that Rauf is referring to is Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi. In a New York Times article one month after 9/11, Rauf was quoted as saying:

“This fatwa is very significant. Yusuf Qaradawi is probably the most well-known legal authority in the whole Muslim world today.”

Question is, was that hollow fatwa (a hotwa as it were) more significant than Qaradawi’s proclamation on Al Jazeera two weeks earlier? Qaradawi stated:

“A Muslim is forbidden from entering into an alliance with a non-Muslim against another Muslim.” He called on Muslims to “fight the American military if we can, and if we cannot, we should fight the U.S. economically and politically.”

Qaradawi elaborated on that non-fatwa fatwa in 2004 when he said of American troops:

“…all of the Americans in Iraq are combatants, there is no difference between civilians and soldiers, and one should fight them, since the American civilians came to Iraq in order to serve the occupation. The abduction and killing of Americans in Iraq is a [religious] obligation so as to cause them to leave Iraq immediately. The mutilation of corpses [however] is forbidden in Islam.”

Abduction and killing is an obligation, but he draws the line at corpse mutilation. Very classy.

Perhaps the media should not be relying so heavily on the imam’s efforts within the FBI anyway. Lest we forget, the FBI doesn’t exactly have a great track record in spotting red flags being raised by a radical imam. Families of the victims at Fort Hood can attest to that. In their defense, the FBI was constantly compromised by over-sensitivity training when it came to Muslims. But when Nidal Hasan was chatting it up with Anwar al-Awlaki, they suspected it was nothing more than a simple case of psychiatric research.

Is all this nothing more than parsing the double talk of a ‘moderate’ imam, or is it something more alarming?

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – The imam leading plans for an Islamic center near the site of the Sept. 11 attacks in New York said the fight is over more than “a piece of real estate” and could shape the future of Muslim relations in America.

The dispute “has expanded beyond a piece of real estate and expanded to Islam in America and what it means for America,” Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf told a group Tuesday that included professors and policy researchers in Dubai.

It was his last scheduled public appearance during a 15-day State Department-funded trip to the Gulf that was intended to promote religious tolerance.

The State Department said that Rauf was returning early to the United States on Wednesday.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said an investigation would set “a terrible precedent.”

“You don’t want them investigating donations to religious organizations and there’s no reason for the government to do so,” he said.

He also played down the fact that the developers of the building where the center would be established owe over $200,000 in back taxes on the property. “They’re going to be treated like everybody else,” he said. “We enforce the law against everybody, or we protect everybody. And if they owe money, they should pay it. and if they don’t, they don’t.”

The developers have said they are negotiating with the city to pay back the taxes.
