TVNL Comment: On this so called "Independence" Day the majority of Americans who feel there is cause to celebrate will most likely to continue to wrap the flag around their eyes and ears as not to see what their nation actually stands for...or how it actually conducts itself in real life. Well here is my comment about the flag...screw the damn flag...it is a symbol of something that no longer exists. People should not honor a flag or a symbol. America's so called greatness is based on one thing and one thing alone...the US Constitution. We have a person occupying the office of US President who referred to this sacred document as a "goddamned piece of paper". A real American would have made a noose out of the nearest flag and hanged George W. Bush for saying that...and for his 8 year assault on the Constitution. So today...put the damn flags down...stop celebrating...stop drinking...stop pigging out...and read the Constitution for a change. Then maybe you will understand why the people who now occupy and control the U.S. government are the absolute enemies of our so called great nation. Wake up...and join real American patriots...like me...in fighting against their criminal assault of our true independence, freedom and liberty! - Jesse Richard - Editor, TvNewsLIES.org.
In Ron Suskind’s 2004 book, The Price of Loyalty, O’Neill said an invasion of Iraq was on the agenda at the first National Security Council (NSC) meeting. There was even a map for a post-war occupation, marking out how Iraq’s oil fields would be carved up.
At that early date, the message from Bush was “find a way to do this,” according to O’Neill, a critic of the Iraq invasion who was forced out of his job in December 2002.
TVNL Comment: This is one reason why Cheney delivered 9/11 to to the world. Yes...we are pointing a finger at Dick Cheney as a key player in the false flag operation known as 9/11.
In September 2007, the Kurdish Regional Government, which runs the semi-autonomous region of Northern Iraq, announced that it had entered into an oil contract with U.S.-based Hunt Oil. The deal complicated negotiations over a revenue-sharing agreement and the Bush administration declared itself shocked at the news. “I know nothing about the deal,” said President Bush.
Documents uncovered by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform indicate that the White House probably shouldn’t have been so surprised.
No wonder American troops only guarded the Ministries of Oil and the Interior in Baghdad, even as looters pillaged museums of their priceless antiquities. They were making sure no one could get at the oil except ... guess who?
Fast forward to Cheney's first heady days in the White House. The oil industry and other energy conglomerates were handed backdoor keys to the White House, and their CEO's and lobbyists were trooping in and out for meetings with their old pal, now Vice President Cheney. The meetings were secret, conducted under tight security, but as we reported five years ago, among the documents that turned up from some of those meetings were maps of oil fields in Iraq - and a list of companies who wanted access to them. The conservative group Judicial Watch and the Sierra Club filed suit to try to find out who attended the meetings and what was discussed, but the White House fought all the way to the Supreme Court to keep the press and public from learning the whole truth.
Think about it. These secret meetings took place six months before 9/11, two years before Bush and Cheney invaded Iraq. We still don't know what they were about. What we know is that this is the oil industry that's enjoying swollen profits these days.
TVNL Comment: We have been saying from the first day our website was published, that Dick Cheney's secret oil meetings hold the proof that 9/11 was part of the plan all along. Without 9/11 the Dick Cheney energy plan could not have gone forward. For the first time in history energy policy meetings were held in secret. Why do you think that is? Why was a shredding company truck spotted outside Cheney's residence?

In the heart of a city with 160,000 Palestinians, Israel maintains a Jewish settlement with 800 people. To protect them, the Israeli military has established a massive system of guard posts, checkpoints and road closures since 2001.
More than 1,800 Palestinian shops have closed and several thousand people have been driven from their homes. The once flourishing gold market is now blocked with barbed wire and choked with weeds.
"For years, Israel has severely oppressed Palestinians living in the center of the city," notes B'Tselem, the Israeli human rights group, in a recent report.
Faced with a surge in the number of proposed solar power plants, the federal government has placed a moratorium on new solar projects on public land until it studies their environmental impact, which is expected to take about two years.
TVNL Comment: But there are no trepidations when it comes to building more coal burning or nuclear power plants...or when it comes to drilling for more oil. This is clearly a conspiracy. It does not get any more obvious than this.
TALMON, West Bank — Blue and yellow signs advertising new homes pepper the narrow West Bank roads that wind up to gated hilltop Jewish settlements.
"A new stage is on its way," boasts one billboard promoting a dozen homes being built in this small Israeli settlement not far from Ramallah, the de facto Palestinian capital.
