Bad time for Asian plots! Iran busts Jundullah ringleader Rigi; Turkish Ergenekon arrested; Greek bonds; Judge: Welcome to the Fishbowl & MOAR

Quick hits for the fans of stuff & things. Welcome to the Fishbowl says a sad federal judge upon the abandonment of the 4th Amendment. Alex Kozinski in the 9th Circuit has some integrity... via Reason:

This is an extraordinary case: Our court approves, without blinking, a police sweep of a person’s home without a warrant, without probable cause, without reasonable suspicion and without exigency—in other words, with nothing at all to support the entry except the curiosity police always have about what they might find if they go rummaging around a suspect’s home. Once inside, the police managed to turn up a gun “in plain view”—stuck between two cushions of the living room couch—and we reward them by upholding the search.

Did I mention that this was an entry into somebody’s home, the place where the protections of the Fourth Amendment are supposedly at their zenith?…

The opinion misapplies Supreme Court precedent, conflicts with our own case law and is contrary to the great weight of authority in the other circuits. It is also the only case I know of, in any jurisdiction covered by the Fourth Amendment, where invasion of the home has been approved based on no showing whatsoever. Nada. Gar nichts. Rien du tout. Bupkes.

Whatever may have been left of the Fourth Amendment after [United States v. Black] is now gone. The evisceration of this crucial constitutional protector of the sanctity and privacy of what Americans consider their castles is pretty much complete. Welcome to the fish bowl.

Meahwhile.... The dumb ban on short selling should increase fake puffing up of the market nicely.

First off Iran and Pakistan cooperated to grab Abdolmalek Rigi, leader of the shady terrorist/militant ring Jundullah, which seems to have been an American (and possibly Indian &/or Israeli) supported Baluchi militant ring, the cats-paw for Chalabi-like gooning around. Wayne Madsen (waynemadsenreport.com) claimed Rigi was around on shady American bases and got snagged in a clever ISI-Iran op, forcing his plane to land in Dubai. Nice!

On the flip side is Ergenekon, which is a humorous Turkish establishment conspiracy of secular ultranationalists perpetually plotting against the Islamists in that unique post-Byzantine way. A ton of people just got arrested and it's all really quite awesome.

FDIC reports NEGATIVE balance. The FDIC is reporting bad things to come and is opening a satellite office in Illinois. Moar on FDIC. Speaking of Illinois they had an interesting secret meeting of their legislators and the National Conference of State Legislatures,  and we can only fear the collapse/martial law style content, or whatever doomladen scenario you care to assume. {they said it was just so people felt comfortable to talk, however it did sound exciting in a way :-P }

Natural Health crackdown is coming for your vitamins and McCains trying to make it happen. So that we can be all forcefed cornsyrup or something. Aloe Vera FDA Crackdown:: let's learn!

There are over 300 aloe vera species on earth. But the Aloe Barbadensis Miller species has been the favorite for study in scientific literature today. The main focus in ongoing research is a group of polysaccharides that contain the healing agents known as aloe polymannans. They all have different healing potentials.

The polymannan sizes range from small to medium to large and very large. Each one has a level of healing that corresponds in magnitude with its size. It's the very large molecular weight and long chain polymannans that Dr. Danhof extracted for use on cancer patients. Injecting the large molecule extract was necessary because it is very difficult to absorb through the digestive system.

Another aspect of these polymannans, especially the larger ones, is their capacity for organizing the immune system. These polymannans provide a detection capacity for cells to determine exactly what is needed for various pathogenic invaders. Without them, the cells are shooting wildly in the dark, and that can lead to damaging cytotoxic autoimmune responses.

From researcher Dr. Ivan Danhof: "The very large molecules are immune modulating, which have a powerful healing effect on AIDS, cancer and many different immune system disorders. It is also this large molecule that causes the body to produce a natural chemical, tumor necrosis factors, which functions to shut off the blood supply to tumors."
