Fucked-Up Friday News :
US Ship Fires At Iranian Vessels
WASHINGTON - A cargo ship contracted by the U.S Military Sea-lift Command fired "a few bursts" of warning shots in the Gulf at small boats believed to be Iranian, U.S. defence officials said on Friday.
Iran quickly denied the alleged confrontation, according to a report on Iran Press TV, an English-language Iranian-funded station.
The Westward Venture, a cargo ship chartered by the U.S. Department of Defence, was travelling north in international waters in the central Gulf at around 8 a.m. local time on Thursday when the incident took place, said Commander Lydia Robertson, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Navy's Bahrain-based Fifth Fleet.
NY Post Smears Activist For “Wheelchair Assault”
Paul Joseph Watson
The NY Post is facing a lawsuit after it brazenly smeared a 9/11 truth activist for attacking a wheelchair-bound woman in New York last night, when in fact it was the activist himself who was beaten up by the girl’s father according to eyewitnesses.
In the most disgusting, inaccurate and bias hit piece we have seen to date, Post writer Philip Messing claims that 18-year-old Maureen Lovetro, who has cerebral palsy, was assaulted by We Are Change member German (Gary) Talis in an article entitled BUSH BASHER SMASHES DISABLED TEEN: COPS during an event attended by Laura and Jenna Bush.
The story even features photos of the wheelchair-bound Lovetro in a crass attempt to elicit more outrage towards Talis.
The libelous smear has also been picked up by Neo-con cheerleader Michelle Malkin on her Hot Air blog.
The fact that numerous eyewitnesses, who were ignored by New York police, assert that it was Talis himself who was the victim of an assault metered out by the girl’s father - John Lovetro - leaves Talis with no option but to pursue a lawsuit against the New York Post, as he stated on The Alex Jones Show today.
Both articles depict Gary as a heartless villain, attacking a handicapped girl—all of which is the furthest from the truth," states a We Are Change press release. "Gary did not and has never lifted a hand toward any citizen, as confirmed by all witnesses. We will be releasing a video interview of Gary after his release from central bookings explaining exactly what took place, followed by the witnesses, all of whom corroborate his statement.
John Lovetro, the girl’s father, struck Gary leaving a flesh wound under his right eye. Gary, aware of his rights, did not at any time defend himself and yet remains the victim, now facing charges of 3rd degree assault. We Are Change will pursue legal action against all individuals and organizations that violate our civil rights. We will not be physically assaulted, and we will not stand for slander and lies, concludes the statement.
We Are Change are asking civil rights attorneys to contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org to offer help.
Eyewitness Dianne Lipson told this website that John Lovetro made aggressive gestures towards Talis, cocking and waving his fist, before pursuing Talis into the side of a building.
Lovetro began punching Talis repeatedly as Lovetro’s wife begged him to stop and the girl in the wheelchair began crying.
"The man punched Gary over and over again," states Lipson, adding, "From what I observed, the man who assaulted Gary was looking for a fight, and he actually exploited his physically challenged daughter, steering her wheelchair toward Gary, in order to fabricate an excuse to physically vent his anger."
Lipson attempted to submit a witness statement to police but was ignored.
The NY Post article also states that Talis shouted obscenities, which is completely contradicted by witness testimony.
The controversy follows a similar incident last week where a member of We Are Change Ireland was attacked by an MEP, only for the mainstream media to later report that the MEP had been the victim of the assault.
A smear campaign is in full-swing on behalf of the Neo-Cons and the corporate media to demonize 9/11 truth and anti-war activists as dangerous, when in fact they are the victims of physical attacks and abuse on behalf of authorities and individuals like John Lovetro.
Contact the New York Post and demand they offer an immediate retraction.

What the fuck??!!
Greenpeace founder Patrick Moore has rightly said that there is no real proof of global warming, this I agree with but he also now says that we should build hundreds of nuclear power plants all across the globe.
What the fuck is this guy on??
He has dissed all nature driven forces including wind, solar, hydroelectric, geothermal & other renewable sources.
Has he lost his mind?
Have the neo-con globalist fascist elite paid him off?
Greenpeace arose out of the whole questionable use of nuclear power & nuclear weapons.
Now their founder turns around and says this??
I am astounded.
Here's the article:
Greenpeace Founder: No Proof of Global Warming, Let's All Go Nuclear
April 25, 2008
Greenpeace founder Patrick Moore says there is no proof global warming is caused by humans, but it is likely enough that the world should turn to nuclear power - a concept tied closely to the underground nuclear testing his former environmental group formed to oppose.
The chemistry of the atmosphere is changing, and there is a high-enough risk that “true believers” like Al Gore are right that world economies need to wean themselves off fossil fuels to reduce greenhouse gases, he said.
“It’s like buying fire insurance,” Moore said. “We all own fire insurance even though there is a low risk we are going to get into an accident.”
The only viable solution is to build hundreds of nuclear power plants over the next century, Moore told the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday. There isn’t enough potential for wind, solar, hydroelectric, and geothermal or other renewable energy sources, he said.

Swedish Tree Is The Oldest In The World
Scientists in Sweden have uncovered a new record-holder for the title of "world's oldest tree." Previously, the oldest tree known to the world was a bristlecone pine tree in California called the "Methuselah tree." At 4,768 years of age, the Methuselah tree is indeed venerable, but compared to this spruce it's still just a young whippersnapper. The newly discovered tree is estimated to be 9,950 years old!
You might expect a tree this old to be tall, thick and majestic, much like a less talkative version of Treebeard the Ent in The Lord of the Rings. However, this tree is actually rather puny-it looks more like Charlie Brown's Christmas tree than one of the oldest living organisms on the planet.
The tree appears so small and unremarkable because the trunk itself is actually very young. The roots, however, have been around since the end of the Ice Age. As the BBC reported on April 17, the tree has gone through a series of trunks or stems, with each one lasting approximately 600 years. Every year, heavy winter snow pushes the lowest branches of the tree into the ground, where they take root. Whenever the old trunk dies, one of these clones rises up from the old rootstock to replace it.
10,000 years is a very, very long time. So, to put this tree's lifespan into perspective, here is a timeline of events that have taken place since it first took root and began to grow:
7,542 BC - Spruce tree takes root on Fulu Mountain in Dalarna, Switzerland
7,500 BC - The world's first known city, Catalhoyuk, was founded around this time.
6000 BC (approximately) - Agriculture arrives in Europe
3500-3200 BC - Cuneiform, the first writing system, is invented in Sumeria. Also, the earliest known use of the wheel dates to this time. The first known instance of a wheel being used was for throwing pots in 3500 BC, but archaeological evidence shows that people were using for transportation by 3200 BC.
2,600 BC - The first Egyptian pyramid, the Pyramid of Djoser, was constructed by the architect Imhotep. For this accomplishment, Imhotep was deified after his death.
1,500 BC - Stonehenge completed
700-800 BC - The Iliad and The Odyssey date to this time. According to tradition, these Greek classics were both composed by a blind poet named Homer.
399 BC - In Athens, the philosopher Socrates was forced to drink a fatal dose of hemlock for "corrupting Athenian youth."
333 BC - Alexander the Great conquers Persia
44 BC - Julius Caesar is appointed dictator of Rome; Rome ceases to function as a republic and becomes an empire
30 AD - Cleopatra, the last Queen of Egypt, commits suicide along with her lover, Roman general Marc Antony.
27 BC-180 AD - The Pax Romana, a period of widespread peace and prosperity throughout the Roman Empire
476 AD - The last Roman Emperor loses his throne
800 AD - Vikings begin to plunder and pillage their way into the rest of Europe
1000 AD - Leif Erikson becomes the first European to "discover" North America
1215 AD - King John is forced to sign the Magna Carta
1334 AD - The Black Plague begins to spread, killing anywhere from 30-50% of the European population
1370 - The Great Wall of China is completed
1477 - Invention of the printing press in Europe
1420-1600 - The Italian Renaissance revolutionizes European art, architecture and literature
1492 - Columbus sails the ocean blue, Europe rediscovers America
1517 - Martin Luther launches the Reformation, and Protestants break with the Catholic Church
1776 - America declares independence from Britain
1914-1918 - World War I devastates Europe
1937-1945 - World War 2 devastates Europe and Asia
1961 - First Human in Space
1969 - Neil Armstrong becomes the first human to set foot on the surface of the moon
2007 - Swedish scientists discover the ancient spruce tree while conducting a tree census in the mountains of Sweden.
Isn't that amazing?
The roots of this one tree have been growing since before the dawn of recorded history! In fact, ancient Sumer, the first human society that had all the characteristics that anthropologists and historians call "civilization," was established around 6000 BC. So, unless an older civilization is discovered sometime in the future, this spruce tree is actually older than civilization itself by more than 1000 years!

Amnesty unveils 'Waterboarding' film
An American expert in torture techniques has denounced his government for allowing "waterboarding" to be practised against terror suspects, just as a graphic advertisement showing the brutal reality of the technique is unveiled to British cinema-goers.
Malcolm Nance, who trained hundreds of US servicemen and women to resist interrogation by putting them through "waterboarding" exercises, demanded an immediate end to the practice by all US personnel.
He said: "They seem to think it is worth throwing the honour of 220 years of American decency in war out of the window. Waterboarding is out-and-out torture, and I'm deeply ashamed President Bush has authorised its use and dragged the US's reputation into the mud."
Mr Bush faced criticism recently when he vetoed a Bill that would have outlawed such methods of "enhanced interrogation" – the White House refuses to describe it as torture.
Mr Nance said: "You have a purpose-built table with straps in a pattern so that people can be strapped and unstrapped quickly. The head is strapped down in such a way so they cannot resist the water. The head is elevated so the water goes down the oesophagus.
"The water is poured very carefully over the nose – you keep a constant pour. You are drowning in water but you don't have the ability to hold your breath. You feel the water going in, you understand that water is filling your lungs."
Mr Nance, who is now an independent consultant, said the technique was also futile, as well as barbaric, as the prisoner would say anything to survive – regardless of its truth.
Amnesty International is leading the campaign to persuade the US to abandon the practice – a form of torture used as long ago as the Spanish Inquisition – and is stepping up its efforts with the release of a graphic and disturbing advertisement.
The broadcast begins with images of glistening clear liquid, suggesting it could be promoting a new brand of vodka or gin. But the camera pulls back to show water is being poured over the face of a desperate man strapped to a table.
Kate Allen, the UK director of Amnesty International, said: "Our film shows you what the CIA doesn't want you to see – the disgusting reality of half-drowning a person.
"For a few seconds, our film-makers did it for real. Even for those few seconds, it's horrifying to watch. The reality – in a secret prison with no one to stop it – is much, much worse."
The advertisement can be seen at here and at selected cinemas from next month onwards.
We Are Change Members Arrested For Asking Laura Bush A Question
Two members of We Are Change were arrested in New York last night for asking Laura and Jenna Bush a question. Reporter Matt Lepacek was dragged out during Laura Bush’s speech and physically assaulted by police, according to Luke Rudkowski.
News of the incidents has not been reported by the corporate media as of this morning.
A We Are Change member named Gary reportedly refused to move from a sidewalk when asked by the Secret Service. When Gary attempted to ask Laura and Jenna Bush a question, a plain clothed man escorting someone in a wheelchair started a fight. Both men were taken to a local police precinct and the man who started the fight was released, while Gary was held and later charged with 3rd Degree Assault.
According to Rudkowski, "This unknown individual was much taller and larger than Gary. For no reason this individual started to lunge at Gary and punch him and beat him. Gary did not defend himself or fight back. Gary was the victim and did not strike once at the unknown individual. This provocateur provoked an attack by trying to instigate a fight and now Gary was arrested and is now facing third degree assault charges by this unknown provocateur. Gary will be arraigned tomorrow morning."
"Please call the 19th Precinct and ask them why Gary was unlawfully arrested and charged with a third degree assault charge when he is innocent and obviously the victim," asks Rudkowski.
Inside the event, We Are Change reporter Matt Lepacek attempted to interrupt a Laura Bush speech with a question before he was quickly dragged away by police.
Luke Rudkowski reports that the police intentionally bashed Lepacek’s head against a door or wall as they removed him from the scene. Lepacek recorded the incident on his cell phone but this was quickly confiscated by police.
Lepacek was subsequently released with a summons for disorderly conduct and will go to court in the future.
Matt Lepacek previously made headlines when he was arrested for asking a question of one of Rudy Giuliani’s staff members during a press conference last June.
"Phone calls from this office to Precinct 19 in attempt to obtain accurate information about the charges resulted in rude behavior and several hang-ups, as well as a transfer to the NYPD’s Dept. of Public Information (a dead end)," writes Rudkowski.
We Are Change are urging supporters to call the police precinct and politely ask that all charges be dropped against Matt Lepacek and Gary.
153 E 67th Street
3rd & Lex, New York, NY 10065
NYPD Dept. of Public Information
Disclaimer: Please when calling the precinct please be polite and courteous to the police officers. We Are Change does not advocate any threats of violence of any kind.

Rick Strassman MD. DMT: The Spirit Molecule
In 1990, he began the first new human research with psychedelic, or hallucinogenic, drugs in the United States in over 20 years. These studies investigated the effects of N,N-dimethyltryptamine, or DMT, an extremely short-acting and powerful psychedelic. During the project's five years, he administered approximately 400 doses of DMT to 60 human volunteers. This research took place at the University of New Mexico's School of Medicine in Albuquerque, where he was tenured Associate Professor of Psychiatry.
Navigate to the Sample Chapters section for some very interesting reading.
