    MANILA, Philippines – The Chinese have taken over another traditional Filipino fishing ground near Palawan where they have stationed up to five ships to keep local fishermen at bay, sources said. Now effectively under Chinese control is Quirino or Jackson Atoll, which has been a rich source of catch for a long time for fishermen from Palawan, Southern Luzon, Western Visayas and even Manila. Gray and white Chinese vessels have not left the atoll, which Filipino fishermen also call Jackson Five, because of the existence of five lagoons in the area. The Chinese are claiming almost the entire South China...

    "...The conspirators were in the Army’s 902nd Military Intelligence Group’s MOS 09L program (“Lima Nine”), E Company, 187th Ordnance Battalion. Lima Nine was started because of the Army’s desperate lack of linguists speaking Pashto, Dari or Arabic. To attract such recruits, military intelligence promises foreigners that if they join the Army as a translator they will get U.S. citizenship and a top security clearance. Candidates from Afghanistan and Iraq, including the Jackson Five, speak such poor English the Army puts them in Lima Nine and gives them English lessons, so they will have some hope of passing basic training.

  • Four Muslims Discharged Over Fort Jackson Threats, Probe Continues

    The Jawa Report ^ | March 1, 2010 | Rusty "Asadullah Alshishani"
    If there was nothing to the allegations, then why were four of the five Muslim soldiers discharged? It seems to me that the earliest reports were wrong that the five Muslims were plotting to poison Fort Jackson's food supply. But later reports that there were nothing to the allegations were also clarified when we learned that the investigation was not into a plot but over comments about poisoning the food.

    Tito's widow is left to a life of squalor By Kate Connolly in Belgrade (Filed: 27/02/2006) Choked in ivy, its balconies and pillars crumbling, the once imposing villa looks as if it were abandoned years ago. A curtain twitches. A dark-haired woman wearing sunglasses peers out before whipping it back. She lives in just two rooms of the spacious property and one of those has a hole in the ceiling. The others are uninhabitable due to damp, mould and broken windows. There has been no heating for 25 years. Water has to be heated on a stove. Many elderly Belgrade...

  • Billionaire Comes to the Rescue for Jacko - (relief for Peter Pan..........)

    The word in Michael Jackson circles is that the beleaguered pop star has found a white knight: billionaire Ron Burkle. Jackson has gone to the tycoon hoping that Burkle, who is reportedly worth $2.3 billion, can stave off the former King of Pop's much-needed sale of his portion of Sony/ATV Music Publishing. Jackson is currently at risk of defaulting on over $270 million in loans from Bank of America. Burkle owns the largest supermarket chain in America, thanks to his acquisition of Kroger Stores. He is also the largest supplier of produce to McDonald's. His Yucaipa Companies also owns the...

    Michael Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe has agreed to be a star witness against the singer during his child molestation trial. Ms Rowe, 37, was married to Jackson for three years and is mother of his children Prince and Paris. But she has now formally been added to the state's list of witnesses. Insiders say her testimony is likely to "blow the lid" off Jackson's bizarre lifestyle. Since the allegations of child abuse first surfaced, the former nurse has filed to regain custody of their children. She was said to have signed all rights over to Jackson after their 1999 divorce,...

    AP | 11/20/03 | LINDA DEUTSCH and TIM MOLLOY
    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Charges against Michael Jackson won't be derailed by a settlement, a prosecutor says, and the reason is a law passed in response to the last time the pop singer was accused of molestation, when the accuser refused to testify. "It is an irony," Santa Barbara District Attorney Tom Sneddon said in an interview with The Associated Press. "The history of the law is that the L.A. district attorney's office carried the legislation as a direct result of the civil settlement in the first investigation." Sneddon baffled legal experts when he seemed to imply in a nationally...

    Jacko's nude kiddie snapsFrom BRIAN FLYNN in New York MICHAEL Jackson was caught with explicit photos of naked children in his bedroom, The Sun can reveal. The detective who led the first Jacko sex abuse probe ten years ago revealed he found the sickening hoard at Jacko’s Neverland ranch. Bill Dworin discovered the photos spread around the bedroom as he probed allegations that Jackson molested a boy. The find was kept quiet as prosecutors decided the shots would not convict him without 13-year-old Jordy Chandler’s testimony. Jordy gave a statement telling how Jacko performed degrading sex acts with him. But...
