Torture of the child martyr: ‘Rebel’, 13, shot, kneecapped and had genitals removed before being killed by Syria’s sadistic regime
“At 13, he is one of the youngest known victims of Syria’s ruthless crackdown on protesters who have tried to overthrow the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
The teenager’s family were told not to speak of his terrible fate. But in a pitiful act of defiance, they posted the footage of his corpse online.
The action led to his father being arrested last week. His whereabouts are unknown.
Posted on YouTube, the video is accompanied by a chilling commentary which details the worst of Hamza’s dreadful wounds.”

“Even in the midst of a horrific economic decline, there are tools that all of us can use to make the most of our limited resources. This includes doing some things that many of us never imagined that we would do. A couple of months ago I never would have imagined that I would be doing an article on coupons. But in these desperate economic times you have to look for any economic edge that you can get. Did you know that it is possible to get $500 worth of groceries for less than 10 dollars? I didn’t know that either until I started watching a show called “Extreme Couponing” on cable television. I was amazed as I watched person after person get over 95 percent off on their groceries. Personally, I have always thought that clipping coupons was a waste of time. Sure, you might save a few bucks, but I really didn’t think it was worth the time or the effort. Well, my opinion has changed. There are a growing number of people out there that are using coupons to provide all of the groceries that their families need almost for free. In an economic environment where incomes are going down but food prices continue to go up, “extreme couponing” is a financial weapon that virtually anyone can use.”
“The guns being found in Mexico aren’t sold by civilian gun stores. Why not? They’re fully-automatic and other things (like grenades) you cannot easily buy (or buy at all) as an ordinary citizen.
Machine guns are military-grade weapons that the US (and others) are giving and selling to the government. Most of the weapons the cartels are using aren’t coming from US gun stores – they’re coming from the United States Government itself.
It’s amazing to see the mainstream media report the truth on this matter….. but refreshing.”

“Can you imagine David Cameron enjoying a round of golf on Remembrance Sunday? It would be inconceivable for the British Prime Minister to do so, and not just because of the usually dire weather at that time of the year. Above all, it would be viewed as an act of extremely bad taste on a day when the nation remembers and mourns her war dead. I can’t imagine the PM even considering it, and I’m sure his advisers would be horrified at the idea. And if the prime minister ever did play golf on such a sacrosanct day he would be given a massive drubbing by the British press, and it would never be repeated.”
“Contrast this with President Obama’s decision to play golf yesterday, Memorial Day, for the 70th time during his 28-month long presidency. For tens of millions of Americans, Memorial Day is a time for remembrance of the huge sacrifices made by servicemen and women on the battlefield. The president did pay his respects in the morning, laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery, but later in the day traveled to Fort Belvoir to play golf. The story has not been reported so far in a single US newspaper, but was made public by veteran White House correspondent Keith Koffler on his blog. Here’s Koffler’s report:”
“Despite the nano-thermite, and no matter how ridiculous the official story of Al-Qaeda is, the majority still believe that 19 hijackers from a cave crashed jets into two buildings at the World Trade Center, causing three (3) sky-scrapers including Building 7, which was not hit by a plane, to implode at free-fall speed through the path of greatest resistance into a pyroclastic debris cloud. How did a Boeing 757 with a wingspan of 125 ft. fit into a 20-foot pre-collapse hole at the Pentagon; and why is there not one photo of the plane hitting the Pentagon? I won’t go into more details as the Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth and others have covered the 9/11 false-flag, with stand-down orders given.”

“The May Chicago PMI is out and contrary to the herd of clueless Wall Street idiots, better known in polite circles as economists, it came at 56.6 on expectations of 62.0, a collapse drop from the 67.6 before. This is the worst monthly drop since the economy imploded back in October 2008, and the second largest two month drop since 1980! A quick look at the New Orders index indicates it was the lowest since September 2009. But the good news: the economy is still in expansion… for about 1 more month. The release says it all: “NEW ORDERS and PRODUCTION posted their largest declines in several years…but remained positive” and “INVENTORIES accelerated buildup” – thank god for artificial economic expansion. And from the respondents: “Fuel cost are going to have a major impact on business activity in a negative way that will slow recovery to a crawl.” Uh, what recovery? Just you wait until QE3 is announced in 3 months. And elsewhere, the May consumer confidence completed the trifecta of bad news, coming at 60.8 on expectations of 65.4, and down from 66.6.”
