The ONLY worthwhile, singular Revelation:

Casey Anthony’s father says he believes granddaughter Caylee died from being drugged so Casey could “have a good time.”

Dr. Phil continues his exclusive interview with George and Cindy Anthony. Will he uncover the answers everyone’s been looking for?


NOTE: The 2nd interview is not as of yet available ~ JP

The general opinion is that Cindy lacks revelation.

From Orlando Sentinel:

Interviewing George and Cindy Anthony is a fruitless exercise. Anyone who has followed the Anthony saga closely for three years knows that, but Dr. Phil McGraw supplied more proof Tuesday.

“Take the mystery out of this story once and for all,” McGraw told the parents of Casey Anthony as the ballyhooed interview began.

They did not deliver on that request.

PART I ~ George and Cindy Anthony: The Interview

~ Cindy is JUST a lost cause. When you say God sent an answer to her prayers by acquitting Casey, I see that she will ever keep her head buried in the sand. I know personally how excruciating it is to admit the worst about your child. I have seen mother’s who make every excuse for a child’s personality disorder, or drug use or alcoholism. I’ve also seen the damage it has done to these children as adults to be enabled.

It tears apart a family. I also know firsthand what it is to be co-dependent. That also destroys families.

But I also know that my personal pain is no excuse for not seeing the fault’s of my child. Tough Love taught me that for years. I believe 95% of parents need a course in ‘Tough Love’. But that is JUST my opinion. ~JP

~ George was put on trial but, despite Cindy seemingly being upset with him, he is not stupid where his daughter is concerned. The only part of the two part interview worth it’s weight, is when Dr. Phil interviewed George alone. Lord knows Dr. Phil tried to shake a mental stick at Cindy. ~ JP

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, discusses the latest developments in the Department of Justice’s handling of ‘running’ guns and explosives across the U.S. – Mexico border with Brett Baier on Fox News “Special Report.”

~ via FOX Nation:

Weapons linked to ATF’s controversial “Fast and Furious” operation have been tied to at least eight violent crimes in Mexico including three murders, four kidnappings and an attempted homicide.

According to a letter from U.S. Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich to Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), the disclosed incidents may be only a partial list of violent crimes linked to Fast and Furious weapons because “ATF has not conducted a comprehensive independent investigation.”

When added to the guns found at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in the U.S., the newly-revealed murders in Mexico bring the total number of deaths linked to Fast and Furious to four.

:: ABC News: Solar Scandal ::

On the ‘Factor’ , ABC News’ Investigative Reporter Brian Ross was interviewed about the emerging Solyndra bankruptcy scandal. Ross claims that the scandal goes ‘right through to the door of the White House’ with White House officials being ‘pressured’ to move up the timing of the loan despite pushback from budget analysts. Ross was stunned to learn how earlier in the year the White House became aware of the companies impending bankruptcy yet continued to downplay this potential risk to the public.

When asked about the White House connection, Ross talks about a major Obama fundraiser and investor in Solyndra, George Kaiser, a man who had visited the White House during the loan consideration period, meeting with aides such as Valerie Jarrett and Pete Rouse.

Ross ends the interview with his belief that the scandal is something the American public ‘will be hearing about all the way through next November”

~ I have this visual stuck in my mind. It was citizens lined up along the route of WTC cheering loudly for our first responders. Common sense told us all who watched the towers collapse that it had to be toxic. Where are the citizens now, to pull together, as they should have all decade long, to help protect those who served bravely that day? Although it is a decade later, we are still losing lives from that day of terror. Would we not fight that if it were a new attack? This is an attack on these souls & their families. Please remember that & pray for them. Please watch the following report. ~ JP

…believed to be killing first responders


Some 9/11 first responders get help – and some don’t

FealGood Foundation – No Responders Left Behind

James Zadroga (1971 – January 5, 2006) was a New York City Police Department (NYPD) officer who died of a respiratory disease that has been attributed to his participation in rescue and recovery operations in the rubble of the World Trade Center following the September 11 attacks. Zadroga was the first NYPD officer whose death was attributed to exposure to his contact with toxic chemicals at the attack site.

~ We went through this with Agent Orange. Agent Orange is the code name for one of the herbicides and defoliants used by the U.S. military as part of its herbicidal warfare program, Operation Ranch Hand, during the Vietnam War from 1961 to 1971. Vietnam estimates 400,000 people being killed or maimed, and 500,000 children born with birth defects.

We went through this with Gulf War ‘syndrome’. Gulf War syndrome (GWS) or Gulf War illness (GWI) affects veterans and civilians who were near conflicts during or downwind of a chemical weapons depot demolition, after the 1991 Gulf War. A wide range of acute and chronic symptoms have included fatigue, musculoskeletal pain, cognitive problems, skin rashes and diarrhea. Approximately 250,000 of the 697,000 veterans who served in the 1991 Gulf War are afflicted with enduring chronic multi-symptom illness, a condition with serious consequences.[

Our government never wants to admit they have been complicit in contributing to these illnesses. I lost several friends in ‘Nam. I lost a very close friend to GWS. I loathe the word ‘Syndrome’. When a ‘syndrome is being reported on, the inference is it all ‘psychological’. A syndrome is the association of several clinically recognizable features & signs . By being labeled a syndrome then the government attempts to say “Well, We JUST don’t know.”

Our military who served this country well, had to fight to get their illnesses validated. I felt it was cruel & suggested to me that by the time it was validated, they would die & JUST go away. Our soldiers, then shamelessly had to fight the government they protected to be recognized & cared for.

SEE: Disability fight over Agent Orange revisited

The last time the US embarked on a major war in the Middle East, in 1990, the legacy included a generation of veterans who were victims of Gulf War Syndrome, and who had to wage a long fight against bureaucracy to get their disease officially acknowledged. Now some fear the latest US war there is also leaving a generation of veterans sick in ways they will have to fight to get recognized and treated for. Gulf War Syndrome — a complex collection of symptoms typically including some combination of chronic headaches, difficulties understanding and communicating, widespread pain, unexplained fatigue, chronic diarrhea, skin rashes and respiratory problems — began to strike US servicemen and women before Gulf War One was even over.

Our Troops were greeted by shrinks:

Soldiers now fighting in Iraq are being exposed to battlefield hazards that have been associated with the ‘Gulf War Syndrome’ that … May Be Down, the Iraq War Is Not Over

A toxic stew of smoke, sand and depleted uranium is already making troops sick, but it looks like the Pentagon is once again ducking its responsibility for their health.

Gulf War Syndrome II

Another big kick in the arse, Our First Responders, who thanks to Bloomberg are not allowed to even attend the memorial, are now being mistreated.

And NOW we have The ‘Cancer Club’!

New York (CNN) — Firefighters exposed to toxic dust and fumes clogging the air after the World Trade Center towers collapsed 10 years ago are more likely to develop cancer, according to a new study.

When compared with firefighters who did not work at ground zero, firefighters working the pile were 19% more likely to get a cancer diagnosis.

According to the research, published Thursday in the Lancet medical journal, the increase occurred during the first seven years after 9/11.

“We excluded cancers that might have been diagnosed early (that may have existed before the attack) … and we still see a 19% increase,” said Dr. David Prezant, chief medical officer at the New York City Fire Department and the study’s lead author, in a recent interview with CNN. “When we put those cancers back in, we see a 32% increase.”

These brave souls are the angels that volunteer to go into disaster and war first. Our government is the last to acknowledge this. Instead they fight to care for them when they are struck down from chemicals made by this very government. Don’t let them get away with this any longer. They fight fur US. Fight for THEM! ~ JP

Barack Obama’s reelection campaign just sent out this creepy email, with the subject line “Sometime soon, can we meet for dinner,” asking supporters to donate to his campaign for a chance to have dinner with Obama.

“Maybe I’ll get to thank you in person,” it says.

Obama’s team has run a similar fundraising gimmick before — and the email says he plans on continuing it throughout the campaign.

We just hope future emails aren’t so unsettling.

Here’s the email:

Friend —

Supporters like you are the reason I’m here, and the values we share have always made our organization more than just a political campaign.

So whenever I can, I want to take the opportunity to meet you. Last month, that meant I got to talk to folks in Iowa about small-business opportunities, and sit down with a group of volunteers from around the country who helped build this campaign in their communities this summer.

Today, I want to ask if you’ll join me and three other supporters for a meal and conversation sometime soon.

Please donate $5 or more to be automatically entered for a chance to join me for dinner.

If this sounds a bit familiar to you, it’s because we’ve done this before. In fact, my hope is that I’ll be able to keep doing these dinners throughout the campaign.

They’re a chance for me to talk one on one with people like you who are taking ownership of this campaign and connect with the work going on every day in neighborhoods across the country.

These dinners also set our campaign apart. No matter what our opponents do over the next 14 months, dinners like these are how we will continue to put people at the heart of this campaign — and prove that we don’t need checks from Washington lobbyists or special-interest PAC money to win an election. We can do it person to person, in our neighborhoods and backyards, and over the dinner table.

That’s why I’m asking for your donation today. I hope you’ll take a minute to help build this campaign. When you do, you’ll have a chance to join me for dinner:

Maybe I’ll get to thank you in person.

h/t to Char for bringing this to our attention!

According to CNN, a stash of Russian-made missiles has gone missing from a weapons warehouse in Tripoli, Libya.:

A CNN team and Human Rights Watch found dozens of empty crates marked with packing lists and inventory numbers that identified the items as Igla-S surface-to-air missiles.

The list for one box, for example, written in English and Russian, said it had contained two missiles, with inventory number “Missile 9M342,” and a power source, inventory number “Article 9B238.”

Grinch SA-24s are designed to target front-line aircraft, helicopters, cruise missiles and drones. They can shoot down a plane flying as high as 11,000 feet and can travel 19,000 feet straight out.

Oh, and it’s not just in Tripoli — tens of thousands of missiles have been swiped

:: Border Patrol finds weapons, rocket launcher near Rio Grande ::

U.S. Border Patrol agents have discovered a cache of several high-powered weapons along the Rio Grande river including a rocket launcher, assault rifles and plastic explosives, authorities said.

Agents found the weapons on Tuesday in a black bag along a quiet stretch of the Rio Grande near Fronton, a small community about 210 miles south of San Antonio. No arrests have been made.

“These deadly weapons could have had a devastating impact on communities on both sides of the border and to our agents and other law enforcement officers,” Rosendo Hinojosa, head of Border Patrol’s Rio Grande Valley sector, said in a statement.

Inside the bag were six assault rifles, a grenade launcher, a rocket launcher, 20 ammunition magazines for various-sized weapons and three packages of what appeared to be C-4 plastic explosives, a Border Patrol news release states.
