On September 3, 2008, George Norey the host of Coast to Coast which is heard in the US on over 500 Stations and through out the world, interviewed Steve Qualye. The bottom line is that Russia has given NATO 21 DAYS to Exit the Black Sea. Could this be the start of something big? Could this postpone the USA Election? There is so much more I could write but I will let the video stand for itself. This is a serious warning and could create all kinds of problems world wide. The US Government will be "technically" Bankrupt as of September 30th, so we will see. Please feel free to down load this video, post it on your own channel, rate it and send it on. Blessings to all of you who have subscribed and believe in individual from. Cheers for now, From the Southern Hemisphere. You know, the God zone, in New Zealand. Here is what the news said today about what is happening.....(no this is not a US report, they only have entertainment in the US, no real news). A US Navy flagship carrying humanitarian aid yesterday steamed into a Georgian port where Russian troops are still stationed, stoking tensions once again in the tinderbox Caucasus region. A previous trip by US warships was cancelled at the last minute a week ago amid fears that an armed stand-off could intensify in the Black Sea port of Poti. The arrival of the USS Mount Whitney, flagship of the 6th Fleet in the Mediterranean, came as Moscow accused Dick Cheney, the hawkish US Vice-President, of stoking tensions during a visit to Tbilisi this week. After meeting President Saakashvili, Mr Cheney vowed to bring Georgia into the Nato alliance. Russia sees such moves as Western encroachment on its traditional sphere of influence. Russia's leaders have accused previous US warships that docked at the port of Batumi, to the south, of delivering weapons to re-arm the smashed Georgian military — charges that Washington denied. Related Links * Cheney delivers warning to Moscow * Britain values unity in Nato over Georgia * Georgia linked to Nato early warning system While Russia again questioned the deployment of what it described as "the number one ship of its type in the US Navy" in the Black Sea, it said that it planned no military action in response. The Russian Army has kept a small component of soldiers in Poti, where Georgian officials accuse them of looting port authority buildings. "Naval ships of that class can hardly deliver a large amount of aid," said Andrei Nesterenko, a Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman. "Such ships have a hold for keeping provisions for the crew and items needed for sailing. How many tonnes of aid can a ship of that type deliver?" He said that the presence of US warships could contravene international conventions governing shipping in the Black Sea, and in particular restrictions on the entry of naval ships from countries that do not share a Black Sea coastline. The small Russian garrison in Poti would pose no military threat to a vessel like the Mount Whitney, but the proximity of two hostile forces in such a fraught environment set the political temperature rising again in the Caucasus a month after Russia's five-day war with Georgia. Moscow, which followed up its crushing military defeat of Georgia by unilaterally recognising two of its breakaway provinces, South Ossetia and Abkhazia, was angry that Mr Cheney still insisted on Georgia's entrance into the Atlantic alliance — something several key Nato members oppose. "The new promises to Tbilisi relating to the speedy membership of Nato strengthen the Saakashvili regime's dangerous feeling of impunity and encourages its dangerous ambitions," said Mr Nesterenko. Visiting Kiev, the Ukrainian capital yesterday, Mr Cheney kept up his tough anti-Russian rhetoric when he urged Ukraine's squabbling pro-Western leaders to unite in the face of threats to the country's security. He met President Yushchenko and Yuliya Tymoshenko, the Prime Minister, and told them that Ukraine's best hope was to be "united with other democracies". Mr Yushchenko has accused his former Orange Revolution ally of siding with Russia in the war with Georgia, an allegation she denies. The split led to the collapse of Ukraine's coalition Government on Tuesday. After endorsing Georgia's application, Mr Cheney said that the US was also committed to Ukraine's membership of Nato. Konstantin Kosachyov, head of the foreign affairs committee in Russia's lower house, accused Mr Cheney of forging an "anti-Russian axis".

Then he have discovered that the base of the bag is of thick wood board that seems to be suspicious . They discovered it was two peices of wood been glued to each other and after opening them , there is a suspecious sticky white substance in the center which appeared later to be the C4 high explosives . The Saudi Customs found out that all Iranian luggage (94~95 bags) contain the same wooden boards which contains the C4 HE and the sum weight of it is 51 KG's . on the Video , a Chemical expert speaks about the C4 specifications and shows how it was hidden in the Iranian luggage . Then a Saudi Police officer shows an experiment on detonating 1 kilogram only of the C4 high explosive in two cars . Iranians Confessions : Then the vidoe shows two Iranian brothers , one of them is the head of the pilgrims caravan , confessing what they were told to do .. the Iranian criminal named Muhammad Hasan Ali Muhamadi Dahnawi who works in nursing confessing that the target of smuggling the explosives to the Kingdom is to serve the Iranian interests and admitted that he didn't do it for money or anything else and that he could've refused doing it . Then it shows his brother , the second Iranian criminal named Muhammad Ali Dahnawi who works as a teacher in Iran saying that Riza Tawakuli was insistent on smuggling the explosives despite that his brother didn't agree with it . Muhammad Ali continues , "my brother told me that Riza Tawakuli has taken him to Tehran where they told him that this work is protected by the country and that he shouldn't fear because he is not alone in it" Muhammad Hasan says "i have a friend named Ali Bu nianian and this friend introduced me to one of his friends named Riza Tawakuli , i gave the Pilgrims luggage to Riza Tawakuli and he is the one who put these explosives in the Pilgrims luggage and i brought it to here" Muhammad Ali says "when i saw my brother with a Saudi employee he said salam alaikum to me and said that he didn't recieve the bags , then he asked me if i saw Riza Tawakuli and i said no . Then he said when you see Riza Tawakuli then tell him of what happened and that they discovered whats in the bags and took it" Muhammad Hasan says "Riza Tawakuli as He introduced himself to me saying that he is one of the members of the Revolutionary Guard and as he explained to me he said : [you as a manager of the Pilgrims caravan then you're able to smuggle the explosives into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through the Pilgrims luggage and i'll be there before you to recieve these explosives from you and we'll use it in the proper way] " Muhammad Ali says "I think that Riza Tawakuli didn't came from Iran after he knew that it was discovered , or that he came but then they brought him back to Iran or taken him to somewhere else , and its possible that he might be in the embassy" Muhammad Hasan who looks nervous says "these bags are made in Iran , i'm an Iranian (Hamladar) , the Pilgrims are Iranians , the plane is Iranian and it came from Iran .. its all obvious and nothing is hidden in it .. what is their purpose of that ? i don't know but i say ask the Iranian government" Sources and more Information and Proofs : 1- Ministry of Internal Affairs - Saudi Arabia 2- Saudi TV Channel 1 - Ministry of Information 3- AZZAMAN NEWSPAPER Issue 1623 Date 30-9-2003 (Khomeini's Grandson Admitted the Plan in an Interview) 4- Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs Website 5- Iran Focus إيران لتدمير المسجد الحرام في مكة المكرمة بالمتفجرات و قتل مئات آلاف المسلمين في موسم حج عام 1406 - 1986 الخميني ايران إيران السعودية الملك فهد متفجرات طائرة الحرس الثوري الجمهورية المملكة

Well, the gals on The View got into it over Sarah Palin (again), and all the others ganged up on Elisabeth for always standing up for Sarah. Joy Blowhard & Barabara Walters were bemoaning the fact that Sarah has to have a whole bunch of advisers surrounding her, prepping her for the debate tomorrow night. Excuse me, but did they not read the article about Obama having a team of 300 advisers on Foreign Affairs alone?!?!? What a bunch of dolts these women are, and Barabara pretends like she's "middle of the road" when it comes to politics - I say B.S.! Oh, and Joy Blowhard says Sarah shouldn't have joked about having heard Biden's speeches since the 2nd grade, seeing as how her running mate is old as "methusela." That's funny considering Joy's main punch line against McCain is that HE is old. I guess only professional comics can say stuff like that. Is Sarah not allowed to have a sense of humor? Oh, yeah, I forgot... she's a conservative. Don't miss the real lie when Whoopi says John McCain is a good friend of hers. Yeah, right. And when Joy said Sarah was dumb, the whole table dropped their jaws.

Who's Sarah Palin? THIS is the REAL Sarah "Political Stunt" Palin. Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin told a passel of lies during her national convention speech. Within moments of the finish of the acceptance speech, the Associated Press published a point-by-point refutation of claims made by Palin and others at the GOP convention. Additionally, the Republicans stretched the truth by overstating Palins experience, misrepresenting her attitude toward earmarks and mischaracterizing Barack Obamas tax proposals. ome of the untruths Palin told: She falsely claimed (again) to have opposed the Bridge To Nowhere. As mayor of Wasilla, Palin hired a lobbyist and traveled to Washington annually to support earmarks for the town totaling $27 million. . Obama appeared on Bill O'Reilly's "The O'Reilly Factor" where he refuted Palin's claims. Obama found himself under Republican fire this week after his comment "You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig" was made. Conservatives have criticized Obama, calling his comments sexist and in reference to Palin's quip "What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull? Lipstick". The Obama campaign insists that the Illinois senator was using a common colloquialism. On Thursday, September 11th, Palin sat down with Charlie Gibson of ABC News for her first major interview. During the interview Palin raised eyebrows with her comment that Barack Hussein Obama will regret not having chosen senator Hilary Clinton as his running mate. On Saturday, September 13th, NBC's Saturday Night Live (SNL) presented a parody, featuring alumni Tina Fey along with Amy Poehler, in which the two spoofed Palin along with Democratic senator Hillary Clinton. Tina Fay has been noted as a Sara Palin look a like. On September 19th, comedienne Sandra Bernhard released a verbal attack against the VP candidate. On September 27th, once again on Saturday Night Live (SNL), Tina Fey and Amy Poehler parody, spoof, and mock the Sarah Palin and Katie Couric Interview. And once again, Tina Fay gives a spot on performance of Sarah Palin at the Katie Couric interview. WHO'S THAT GIRL: Madonna's "Who's That Girl" was a huge success all around the world and effortlessly made it to the number one spot in countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, Spain, Canada, South Africa and many others. The song was nominated for "Best Song From A Motion Picture" at the 1988 Grammy Awards and "Best Original Song" at the 1988 Golden Globe Awards. In 2008, Madonna released her eleventh studio album, Hard Candy, which spawned the international hit "4 Minutes" a duet with Justin Timberlake, featuring Timbaland. An international tour to promote the album, the Sticky & Sweet Tour, began on August 23. Palin served two terms as mayor of her home town of Wasilla, then in 2006 became Alaskas youngest and first female governor. Now, at 44, the former beauty queen aims to become the USAs first female Vice-President. Katie Couric will spend two days traveling on the campaign trail with Governor Sarah Palin on Sunday, September 28 and Monday, September 29, conducting an exclusive interview to be broadcast on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric beginning Monday the 29th (Part 1). Coverage will continue on Tuesday, September 30th (Part 2) on the Early Show. The interview will take place just days before the Vice Presidential debate between Palin and Senator Joe Biden in St. Louis on Thursday, October 2. The scandal known as "Troopergate" gained national attention after Republican presidential candidate John McCain chose Palin as his running mate. Fox New's Bill O'Reilly and Anne Coulter take a stab at both Jon Stewart's the Daily Show and Stephen Colbert's the Colbert Report for "the Liberal biases and conspiracy of the Media." Sandra Bernhard is appearing. It has video of Bernhard calling Palin "Uncle Women," a "turncoat bitch" and a "whore." Bernhard also claimed that Palin Would Be Gang-Raped By Blacks in Manhattan if the democrats lost the election. The presidential debate will be aired on C-SPAN, CNN, MSNBC, and Fox Faux News on Friday, September 26 2008 in Mississippi. Part 1 I of the president debate will include Barack Obama and John McCain discussing the economy and recent Wall Street economic crisis and the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac bailout. Part II 2 will include international foreign affairs. Question Part 3 of continues discussion of the economic recession and potential great depression 2. Part 4 of the presidential debate questions Barack Obama and John McCain on Lehman Brothers, job loss, and a failing American economy. The president debate between Barack Obama and John McCain promises to accuse each other for the blame of our economic crisis. Presidential debate 2008 between Jon McCain vs Barak Obama, live on September 26th 2008 9/26/08. Dedicated to Greg - I love you.

Hey everyone! I'm ----Ginny Jones your host for playingpoliticstv****, your online video guide to everything political. On this edition of playing politics I will be discussing presidential candidate Ron Paul. Congressman Ron Paul is one of the candidates for the Republican nomination in this year’s presidential election. Ron Paul entered the U.S. Air Force during the Cuban Missile Crisis. He remained in the military during the early years of the Vietnam War and served active duty as a flight surgeon from 1963 to 1965. Paul has been described as conservative, constitutionalist, and libertarian. He advocates a non-interventionist foreign policy, having voted against actions such as the Iraq War Resolution, but in favor of force against terrorists in Afghanistan. He favors withdrawal from NATO and the United Nations, citing the dangers of foreign entanglements to national sovereignty. He received a draft notice and entered the U.S. Air Force during the Cuban Missile Crisis. He remained in the military during the early years of the Vietnam War. He served active duty as a flight surgeon from 1963 to 1965, attending to the ear, nose, and throat problems of pilots in South Korea, Iran, Ethiopia, and Turkey, but was never sent to Vietnam. He presently serves on the House Committee on Financial Services and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. He continues to advocate a dramatic reduction in the size of the federal government and a return to constitutional principles. Ron Paul is the leading advocate for freedom in our nation’s capital. As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Dr. Paul tirelessly works for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies. Thanks for watching playing politicstv****, I’m Ginny Jones reminding you to get out and vote.

Review from Amazon "A thoughtful history of U.S.-Saudi relations. It challenges the common characterization of the relationship as a bargain in which the Saudis provide easy access to oil in exchange for U.S. security guarantees."--Foreign Affairs "This is the most solid book to date on the vital relationship between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, with important new historical material and a hard-headed look at our tough policy choices for the future."--Leslie H. Gelb, President Emeritus, The Council on Foreign Relations "Well researched.... The best sections of her impressively researched book explain the complexity and ambition of joint U.S.-Saudi undertakings against communist governments and guerrilla movements during the Cold War -- not only in Afghanistan...but also in the Middle East, Africa and Central America.... A reliable, efficient book that policymakers and regional analysts will find useful."--Steve Coll, Washington Post Book

THE INTERIOR is created by Geert Heetebrij and Helmut Schleppi, the same writing-directing team responsible for the feature film A FOREIGN AFFAIR (aka DVD title: 2 BROTHERS and A BRIDE) with David Arquette, Tim Blake Nelson, and Emily Mortimer. That film premiered at Sundance, opened in select US theaters, and has been distributed worldwide. It got '2 thumbs up!' from Ebert and Roeper. Much of 'The Interior' was shot at actual jungle locations, with local natives functioning as extras.

BY JONATHAN KETZ You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy Pornography on the internet. Nothing new there. But the man behind the technology being sentenced to death? That’s a new one. Protesters led rallies in Ontario for the release of Saeed Malekpour, a programmer on death row in Iran for enabling a pornographic website. The twist is...Malekpour says he knew nothing about it. We’re following coverage from CTV, The Toronto Star, United For Iran, The Iranian, and CBC. Malekpour wrote a software system designed for image uploading and management. CTV reports Malekpour, “admitted to writing the program but said he wasn't aware of how it was being used. His lawyer is appealing the death sentence.” Iranian police arrested Malekpour when he came to the country in September of 2008 for quote "designing and operating pornographic websites, rioting against the regime and insulting Islamic sanctities." Malekpour came to Iran to visit his ailing father. The Toronto Star reports Malekpour’s letters to his wife describe a brutal prison experience. “....while I remained blindfolded and handcuffed, several individuals armed with cables, batons and fists struck and punched me.” Malekpour says guards broke his jaw during the torture. In a report from United for Iran, Malekpour says he was forced to confess to the crimes. “A large portion of my confession was extracted under pressure...and false promises of immediate release upon giving a false confession to whatever the interrogators dictated…” Other Iranian sources worry the time Malekpour has to prove his running short. Iranian**** reports: "Sadly, Saeed Malekpour has not been provided a fair opportunity to defend himself from the charges laid against him. It is becoming increasingly obvious that this chance will never come.” The questionable handling of the issue got media outlets talking across the Atlantic as well. Despite the protests in Canada, CBC explains why the government hasn’t tried harder to save his life. Michael: “Now Malekpour is not a Canadian citizen. He is a computer engineer. For that reason, foreign affairs has not intervened. He is an Iranian national sentenced by an Iranian court.” Malekpour’s wife, who is still living in Canada, has taken things into her own hands, setting up an online petition video along with a Facebook group. In regards to the Malekpour protests in Canada, The Star’s Olivia Ward called them, “a last-ditch effort to save his life.” Follow Newsy_Videos on Twitter Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

The human alikes: President Georgi Parvanov (Gotse), Prime Minister Sergey Stanishev, Parliamentary Speaker Georgi Pirinski, Minister of Foreign Affairs Ivaylo Kalfin, Minister of Finance Plamen Oresharski, Minister of Interior Rumen Petkov, former chief secretary of the Ministry of Interior and current Mayor of Sofia Boyko Borissov failed to take into account and still escape any human moral sense, any conscience. Yes, they do resemble humans, but in fact are freaks behind human-faced masks. They impudently override the Bulgarian constitution and the Convention on the Rights of the Child - and fail to meet the court rulings. Ladies and Gentlemen European citizens, Bulgaria is plagued with state banditry, which is worse than any kind of mafia known to the world. Therefore, on 21 September 2007, at 12:00 o’clock, in front of my house, at the neighborhood where Savestin (his name means conscience!), I will demonstratively set on fire the scarecrows depicting those seven in-humans I mentioned above. They bear the guilt for the abduction of my son and for the existing human and child trafficking in Bulgaria – their lack of activity is beyond any doubt criminal. THE BULGARIAN STATE HAS FAILED TO ORGANIZE THE SEARCH AND HAS NOT RETURNED HOME ANY CHILD PROCLAIMED MISSING, INCLUDING SAVESTIN.. Accept this as an invitation to attend my protest.
