The Department of Defense recently purchased and destroyed thousands of copies of an Army Reserve officer’s memoir in an effort to safeguard state secrets, a spokeswoman said Saturday.

“DoD decided to purchase copies of the first printing because they contained information which could cause damage to national security,” Pentagon spokeswoman Lt. Col. April Cunningham said.

Black Construction Worker Chased away from Ground Zero by Crazed Mob

Note from Alex Jones: This is an important issue. It has now come out that the co-owner of Fox News is the main financier of the proposed mosque. The mosque Imam is hooked in with the CFR and other top globalist organizations, the evidence is conclusive, this is a divide and conquer operation.

During an anti-mosque protest at ground zero, a construction worker walked through the crowd. Members of the protest, assuming that he was a Muslim, confronted him and shouted obscenities before escorting him out and telling him that he is not welcome. Their anti-Islam and anti-mosque posters inches from his face in multiple instances.

This man’s name is Kenny and he is a union carpenter working at ground zero. He wore a pro-American accessory around his neck and proclaimed that he was not Muslim. His only crime was walking through the crowd and looking vaguely like the enemy our media portrays on a daily basis.

The mosque isn’t really a mosque at all, at least not in the traditional sense. The plans are for a community center including a culinary school with two floors dedicated to prayer. The location of the proposed structure is several blocks away from ground zero surrounded by “strip joints” and an old abandoned Burlington Coat Factory location.

Sentiments and instances like these were commonplace during the early days of Hitler’s reign. While Jews were blamed for corrupting “pure” German culture, many of the economic problems the country was facing was turned on them as an easy target. At first they were banned from some public events, then their doors were marked with a Joseph Star, their property seized and ultimately their arrest and placement in death camps resulted. The passing of the Nuremberg Laws on September 15, 1935 gave a legal basis to the exclusion of Jews from German society. This bigotry expanded past the Jews and on to others not deemed fit to “Aryan” standards.

Poet and philosopher George Santayana once said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” The debate over whether or not a religious organization has the right to create a community center in what is considered the most multicultural city in the most diverse country in the world sets a dangerous precedent. This debate, inflated and expanded by the media in a large scale, can only work to divide the people of America further and distract us from the real problems facing our nation. Just as Nazi Germany used a religious community as a distraction to cover their ultimate plan to dominate Europe, this debate is only hiding the overall plan for globalization at the hands of an elite few who could care less about a building in New York.

An Infowars.com reader sent an email today informing us that our website is no longer available in Greek public libraries. “Prisonplanet.com is still accessible, but it’s only a matter of time before the Greek censors notice attention has shifted to that website, and move in to ban it as well,” she writes. “This isn’t just a local library banning access to Infowars.com, but is a nationwide ban: the digital traffic filters, through which all traffic from and to Greek public libraries passes, are located in and controlled from Athens (National Technical University of Athens), so yes, THIS IS A NATION WIDE BAN!”

Attempting to reach Infowars.com from a Greek public library produces the screen below.

Michigan Considers Law to License Journalists

A Michigan lawmaker wants to license reporters to ensure they’re credible and vet them for “good moral character.”

Senator Bruce Patterson is introducing legislation that will regulate reporters much like the state does with hairdressers, auto mechanics and plumbers. Patterson, who also practices constitutional law, says that the general public is being overwhelmed by an increasing number of media outlets–traditional, online and citizen generated–and an even greater amount misinformation.

“Legitimate media sources are critically important to our government,” he said.

He told FoxNews.com that some reporters covering state politics don’t know what they’re talking about and they’re working for publications he’s never heard of, so he wants to install a process that’ll help him and the general public figure out which reporters to trust.

“We have to be able to get good information,” he said. “We have to be able to rely on the source and to understand the credentials of the source.”

Anti-Chavez channel removed from cable

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) – A cable-television channel critical of President Hugo Chavez was yanked from the air early Sunday for defying new government regulations requiring it to televise some of the socialist leader’s speeches.

Venezuelan cable and satellite TV providers stopped transmitting Radio Caracas Television Internacional, an anti-Chavez channel known as RCTV, after it did not show the president’s speech Saturday to a rally of supporters.

While five other channels were also dropped from cable, some say the government took broader action to disguise its mission to shut down a popular, critical media outlet ahead of congressional elections and amid rising discontent over inflation, crime and electricity shortages.

Venezuelan pollster and analyst Luis Vicente Leon said the message is clear: “The government is willing to do everything to destroy its adversaries.”

“The government is willing to do everything to destroy its adversaries,” said Luis Vicente Leon, a Venezuelan pollster and analyst.

RCTV already was forced to switch to cable in 2007 after the government refused to renew its license for regular airwaves. Chavez accused the station then of plotting against him and supporting a failed 2002 coup.

Chavez said Sunday the latest action is about following the law.

“Whoever refuses to comply with the law, that’s what must be done,” he said on his weekly broadcast, calling for a round of applause for the telecommunications agency.

If channels don’t comply, he said, they won’t be allowed back on the air: “It’s their decision, not ours.”

Under the new rules, two dozen local cable channels, including RCTV, must carry government programming when officials deem it necessary, just as channels on the open airwaves already do. Chavez regularly uses that legal power to order broadcast TV and radio stations to carry his marathon speeches, which can last up to seven hours.

Though Chavez remains Venezuela’s most popular politician, he has slipped in the polls and is campaigning against an emboldened opposition to keep control of the National Assembly in September elections.

RCTV has asked the Supreme Court to block the new regulations. RCTV called the government’s actions illegal in a statement, saying the channel has done nothing wrong and has a right to defend itself.

In Caracas neighborhoods, Chavez opponents leaned out apartment windows early Sunday to bang on pots and pans. Others shouted epithets and drivers joined in, honking car horns.

The national journalists’ association called it a violation of human rights and freedom of speech. Its president, William Echeverria, condemned it as an “increase in censorship.”

The U.S. Embassy also saw cause for concern.

“Access to information is a cornerstone of democracy,” U.S. Embassy spokeswoman Robin Holzhauer said. “By restricting yet again the Venezuelan people’s access to RCTV broadcasts, the Venezuelan government continues to erode this cornerstone.”

Five international channels – Ritmo Son, Momentum, America TV, American Network and TV Chile – also were suspended after not providing authorities with required information about their programs and ownership, said Mario Seijas, president of Venezuela’s subscription television chamber. He said other cable channels are in similar situations and could be taken off the air if they don’t turn in required documents in the coming days.

Government figures say about 37 percent of Venezuelan homes received cable television in 2008. But some private companies say their research shows about six out of every 10 households have subscription TV service.

RCTV has a smaller audience than it did in 2007 but has remained popular. The channel claims that 90 percent of cable viewers say they watch RCTV.

“A hard-line current within the Chavez movement would have the government permanently take Radio Caracas off the air,” said Steve Ellner, a political science professor at Venezuela’s University of the East. “There are some Chavez movement leaders, however, who believe that the measure is ill-timed given the government’s current woes such as the rationing of electricity.”

Michael Shifter of the Inter-American Dialogue think tank in Washington said Chavez’s aim is censorship. “He is nervous about mounting problems and slipping popular support, so he is moving aggressively to tighten his grip on all fronts,” Shifter said.

In August, Chavez’s government forced 32 radio stations and two small TV stations off the air, saying some owners had failed to renew their broadcast licenses, while other licenses were no longer valid because they had been granted to owners who are now dead.

Globovision – the last opposition-aligned TV channel on the open airwaves – is also the target of multiple government investigations that authorities say could lead to the revocation of its broadcast license
