Ron Paul: The Last Nail (Video)
Source: Ron Paul Submitted: 05/26/2011
--"Who would have ever thought that the current generation and Congress would stand idly by and watch such a rapid disintegration of the American Republic? Characteristic of this epic event is the casual acceptance by the people and political leaders of the unitary presidency, which is equivalent to granting dictatorial powers to the President. Our Presidents can now, on their own:

1. Order assassinations, including American citizens
2. Operate secret military tribunals
3. Engage in torture
4. Enforce indefinite imprisonment without due process
5. Order searches and seizures without proper warrants, gutting the 4th Amendment
6. Ignore the 60-day rule for reporting to the Congress the nature of any military operations as required by the War Power Resolution
7. Continue the Patriot Act abuses without oversight
8. Wage war at will
9. Treat all Americans as suspected terrorists at airports with TSA groping and nude X-raying"

Trusting the Vaccine "Experts"
Source: Mercola.com Submitted: 05/22/2011
--Countless American parents are putting their trust, and their child's lives, in the hands of the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) every time they vaccinate their children. Yet two of the CDC's "go-to guys" have now been caught red-handed lying and, in the case of Dr. Poul Thorsen, committing outright fraud. This includes:

* Dr. Poul Thorsen, who was involved in several key studies the CDC uses to support their claims that MMR and mercury-containing vaccines, among others, are safe.

* Dr. Paul Offit, a very well-known and frequent proponent of mandatory vaccination, whose views are promoted by the AAP and who previously served as a member of The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). ACIP is a 15-member panel of immunization experts, selected by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. They provide advice and guidelines to the CDC on vaccine-preventable diseases.

Mike Murphy has released the documentary, “What In The World Are They Spraying” which has brought the truth to millions of otherwise clueless citizens.

Obama's war on whistle-blowers
Source: Salon.com Submitted: 05/18/2011
--The prohibition on domestic spying was long one of the NSA's central mandates, and objecting to the agency's post-9/11 use of its awesome technology to turn inward on the American people is about as pure whistleblowing as it gets. Recall what former Idaho Senator Frank Church said about the NSA after his mid-1970s Committee uncovered decades of severe surveillance abuses under virtually every President since World War II: "That capability at any time could be turned around on the American people and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything: telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn't matter. There would be no place to hide." Mayer also details how Drake raised objections to what he suspected (rightly) was the NSA's illegal eavesdropping on Americans without the warrants required by FISA.

Thomas Drake is a hero who deserves a Medal of Freedom. Instead, the Obama administration seeks to imprison him for decades while steadfastly protecting from prosecution -- or judicial review of any kind -- the high-level government officials who systematically broke the law.

The Strauss Kahn Frame-Up
Source: PrisonPlanet.com Submitted: 05/18/2011
--Strauss-Kahn is portrayed as so deprived of sex that he attempted to rape a hotel maid. Anyone who ever served on the staff of a powerful public figure knows that this is unlikely. On a senator’s staff on which I served, there were two aides whose job was to make certain that no woman, with the exception of his wife, was ever alone with the senator. This was done to protect the senator both from female power groupies, who lust after celebrities and powerful men, and from women sent by a rival on missions to compromise an opponent. A powerful man such as Strauss-Kahn would not have been starved for women, and as a multi-millionaire he could certainly afford to make his own discreet arrangements.

As Henry Kissinger said, “power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.” In politics, sex is handed out as favors and payoffs, and it is used as a honey trap. Some Americans will remember that Senator Packwood’s long career (1969-1995) was destroyed by a female lobbyist, suspected, according to rumors, of sexual conquests of Senators, who charged that Packwood propositioned her in his office. Perhaps what inspired the charge was that Packwood was in the way of her employer’s legislative agenda.

Here is what made me suspicious from the start: The media can paint an allegation of rape any way they like. They can make it sound “preposterous” and give it very little coverage, or they can present it as if the allegation came from Mother Theresa herself and plaster the story everywhere. (The latter approach nearly guarantees the assumption of “guilt” in the public’s mind and all the coverage I saw leaned toward this “smear” method.)

Of course I have no way of knowing whether or not the charges against Kahn are true, but then again neither does anyone else (except the maid who’s alleging the attack and Kahn himself.) That said, Paul Craig Roberts brings up some very important things to consider in the article above.
About Those "Legal" Prescription Drugs
Source: Mercola.com Submitted: 05/18/2011
Stevie Nicks: "Finally, in 1993, I'd had enough. I said, 'Take me to a hospital.' I went in for 47 days, and it made Betty Ford look like a cakewalk. My hair turned gray and my skin molted. I could hardly walk. You can detox off heroin in 12 days. Coke is just a mental detox. But tranquilizers -- they are dangerous. I was terrified to leave, and I came away knowing that that would never happen to me again."

--Although many fail to realize this, prescription drugs can be just as addictive as illegal drugs. In fact, in many cases there's no difference between a street drug and a prescription drug. For example, hydrocodone, a prescription opiate, is synthetic heroin. It's indistinguishable from any other heroine as far as your brain and body is concerned. So, if you're hooked on hydrocodone, you are in fact a good-old-fashioned heroin addict.

Patriot Act Deadline Looms

"GOP leaders argue that extending the PATRIOT Act is especially important because the killing of Osama bin Laden might inspire retaliatory terrorist attacks against Americans. Call me cynical, but had Bin Laden not yet been killed or captured, I'm sure that these same GOP leaders would argue that extending the PATRIOT Act is especially important because Osama bin Laden remains on the loose." - Don Boudreaux

Three controversial provisions of the so-called Patriot Act are set to expire on May 27.

Rep. James Sensenbrenner, Chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security, has introduced a bill that would make one of these provisions PERMANENT and would extend the other two for SIX YEARS.

This bill will likely be debated and voted on in the House next week.

The People vs. Goldman Sachs
Source: RollingStone.com Submitted: 05/12/2011
--To recap: Goldman, to get $1.2 billion in crap off its books, dumps a huge lot of deadly mortgages on its clients, lies about where that crap came from and claims it believes in the product even as it's betting $2 billion against it. When its victims try to run out of the burning house, Goldman stands in the doorway, blasts them all with gasoline before they can escape, and then has the balls to send a bill overcharging its victims for the pleasure of getting fried.

--This issue is bigger than what Goldman executives did or did not say under oath. The Levin report catalogs dozens of instances of business practices that are objectively shocking, no matter how any high-priced lawyer chooses to interpret them: gambling billions on the misfortune of your own clients, gouging customers on prices millions of dollars at a time, keeping customers trapped in bad investments even as they begged the bank to sell, plus myriad deceptions of the "failure to disclose" variety, in which customers were pitched investment deals without ever being told they were designed to help Goldman "clean" its bad inventory. For years, the soundness of America's financial system has been based on the proposition that it's a crime to lie in a prospectus or a sales brochure. But the Levin report reveals a bank gone way beyond such pathetic little boundaries; the collective picture resembles a financial version of The Jungle...

Upton Sinclair's narrative shocked the nation into a painful realization about the pervasive filth and corruption behind America's veneer of smart, robust efficiency. But Carl Levin's very similar tale probably will not. The fact that this evidence comes from a U.S. senator's office, and not the FBI or the SEC, is itself an element in the worsening tale of lawlessness and despotism that sparked a global economic meltdown. "Why should Carl Levin be the one who needs to do this?" asks Spitzer. "Where's the SEC? Where are any of the regulatory bodies?"

The article above provides a LONG list of references. It's well worth looking at, but I'd like to focus on something that's often left out of the argument.

Let's say, just for fun, that torture DID work. Is that the only measure of "merit" that matters? For instance: What if lighting suspects' children on fire "worked?" ....assuming it would "help us get a 'bad guy' every now and then," would it be OK?

Obviously, there are a lot of things that "work." Rape is an effective way to engage in sexual intercourse. Theft is an effective way to increase wealth. Assault can be used to gain compliance. That these "methods" CAN secure the desired "ends" does not make them acceptable. Trying to dig up a single instance where torture "worked" (so it can be used as official U.S. policy) isn't acceptable either.

As noted below, the first question a moral human being should ask (when determining an acceptable course of action) should always be: "By what means?"

10 Facts That Prove The Bin Laden Fable Is a Contrived Hoax

1) Before last Sunday’s raid, every intelligence analyst, geopolitical commentator or head of state worth their salt was on record as stating that Osama Bin Laden was already dead, and that he probably died many years ago, from veteran CIA officer Robert Baer, to former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, to former FBI head of counterterrorism Dale Watson. In addition, back in 2002 Alex Jones was told directly by two separate high level sources that Bin Laden was already dead and that his death would be announced at the most politically opportune moment. Top US government insider Dr. Steve R. Pieczenik, a man who held numerous different influential positions under five different Presidents, serving as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under the Nixon, Ford and Carter, told the Alex Jones Show last week that Bin Laden died of marfan syndrome shortly after he was visited by CIA physicians at the American Hospital in Dubai in July 2001.  Read full article »

Weakening Your Immune System with Vaccines
Source: Mercola.com Submitted: 05/02/2011
---The main "active" ingredient in a vaccine is either killed bacteria or live viruses that have been attenuated (weakened). However, that's by no means the sole ingredient in vaccines. All vaccines also contain a variety of chemicals; some of which are more toxic than others.

Most seasonal flu vaccines, for example, contain 25 mcg of mercury dangerous levels of mercury in the form of thimerosal, a vaccine preservative. Mercury is a known neurotoxin and thimerosal containing vaccines have been associated with long-term immune, sensory, neurological, motor, and behavioral dysfunctions. (Aluminum is another neurotoxin that is used in some vaccines as an adjuvant and has been associated with neurological problems such as Alzheimer's disease and dementia).

Just imagine the potential brain damage you're exposing yourself to if you get a seasonal flu vaccine every single year!

But thimerosal is not the only concern when it comes to flu vaccines. You also have the dangers of immune adjuvants like squalene or aluminum to contend with. (Aluminum adjuvants are used in approved U.S. influenza vaccines while other countries may allow squalene to be added as an adjuvant).

Other toxic substances found in various vaccines include:

Reasonable Tyranny
Source: Larken Rose Submitted: 04/30/2011
There are things called principles, that people ought to (but usually don't) stick to even when making an exception seems "necessary" and "reasonable." Usually people start complaining that those in power have "gone too far" long after the actual principle involved has been killed and buried. The current absurdity with the TSA is a fine example.

Once upon a time, those in power decided it was necessary and reasonable to have security personnel rummaging around in everyone's luggage. After all, what if someone had a bomb?!? Isn't it worth giving up that little bit of privacy and freedom, if it meant saving lives?

Oops, there goes a principle.

In short, no, it was not worth it, precisely because that was the moment when the principle died. After that, the slow slide into the ridiculous situation we have today--with everyone who rides a plane being groped or electronically strip-searched--was bound to occur, because there was no principle left to prevent it.

Obama’s Birth Certificate: Not the Issue
Source: PrisonPlanet.com Submitted: 04/30/2011
--Ideologically, President Obama’s qualifications are important and many are right to question them. Realistically, they are a red herring, as is his entire presidency. He is in charge of exactly nothing, most likely not even the tie he puts on in the morning and surely not the words that come out of his mouth. His entire function is to perpetuate the facade that America is still run by an elected government and not an illegitimate oligarchy of corporations and financial institutions. Arguing over his birth certificate engenders him with legitimacy in and of itself – suggesting that if he had proper qualifications he would be a “legitimate” president. But he, like his predecessor Bush, are both entirely illegitimate, as is the system they purportedly preside over.

Recognizing this grave reality, and instead concentrating on the corporate-financier interests that have hijacked American politics is essential to restoring a true constitutional republic. For it is not whose hands we think hold the power, it is in whose hands that really hold the power that shapes US policy. Definitively, US policy does not favor the people, definitively the power is not in the people’s hands. As long as we grasp to the illusion that through the futile exercise of elections we are somehow “in control,” it will remain this way perpetually. The fact that our president is in charge of absolutely nothing and that his duties have long been shifted to an unelected corporate-financier oligarchy is the issue, not his dubious qualifications.

Because of this, it is imperative to showcase Ron Paul as the leading frontrunner in the race. On May 5, 2011, we will hold an online money bomb in support of Ron Paul for President 2012,” organizers wrote on the debateday.com website.

On Friday April 15th, the U.S. government showed again just how easily it can completely “shut down” any website it wants. By seizing a domain name, the Department of “Justice” can cut the public off from access to products, services or information in the blink of an eye. Case in point: Today, the DOJ seized FullTiltPoker.com, PokerStars.com and AbsolutePoker.com.  Read full article »
...and regarding the government's claim that it's just trying to "protect us" from ourselves, I've said it before and I'll say it again:

I can spend every dollar I have on worthless State Lottery "scratch off" tickets. I can mortgage my house and play $5,000 hands of blackjack in land-based casinos. Hell, I can even bet my kids lunch money at the local CHURCH; but in the "Freest Nation on Earth" I'm not allowed to play nickel slots or low-stakes poker from the privacy of my own home. GIVE ME A BREAK!

The people didn't want this anti-gaming legislation; as a matter of fact they fought for years to stop it from passing. So what did the government do? They took advantage of the fear created by 9/11 and snuck the legislation through under a PORT SECURITY BILL!

Federal Reserve forks over $220 million in bailout money to wives of two Morgan Stanley bigwigs
Source: RollingStone.com Submitted: 04/13/2011
--This is where TALF fits into the bailout picture. Created just after Barack Obama's election in November 2008, the program's ostensible justification was to spur more consumer lending, which had dried up in the midst of the financial crisis. But instead of lending directly to car buyers and credit-card holders and students — that would have been socialism! — the Fed handed out a trillion dollars to banks and hedge funds, almost interest-free. In other words, the government lent taxpayer money to the same assholes who caused the crisis, so that they could then lend that money back out on the market virtually risk-free, at an enormous profit.

Cue your Billy Mays voice, because wait, there's more! A key aspect of TALF is that the Fed doles out the money through what are known as non-recourse loans. Essentially, this means that if you don't pay the Fed back, it's no big deal. The mechanism works like this: Hedge Fund Goon borrows, say, $100 million from the Fed to buy crappy loans, which are then transferred to the Fed as collateral. If Hedge Fund Goon decides not to repay that $100 million, the Fed simply keeps its pile of crappy securities and calls everything even.

This is the deal of a lifetime. Think about it: You borrow millions, buy a bunch of crap securities and stash them on the Fed's books. If the securities lose money, you leave them on the Fed's lap and the public eats the loss. But if they make money, you take them back, cash them in and repay the funds you borrowed from the Fed. "Remember that crazy guy in the commercials who ran around covered in dollar bills shouting, 'The government is giving out free money!' " says Black. "As crazy as he was, this is making it real."

The Real Culture War: the Federal State vs. The People
Source: DownsizeDC.org Submitted: 04/13/2011
"I begin by taking. I shall find scholars later to demonstrate my perfect right." -- Frederick the Great, (1712-1786) King of Prussia, Frederick II

Last Friday, several functions of the Federal State nearly shut down as Democrats and Republicans fought over things like tax funding for abortion providers. It's the usual con game . . .

* Democrats pretend that you must be "anti-choice" if you oppose tax-funded abortion
* Republicans are right to favor choice when it comes to such funding, but they're still just cherry-picking the unconstitutional programs that they can best use to manipulate their base.

In other words, the politicians are still pretending to fight a "Culture War." But are the people following their lead? I think not.

It seems to me that times have changed. People are waking up. They're becoming harder to manipulate. As the letter below indicates, the real Culture War isn't the one being portrayed by the institutional media. It's not the conservatives against the liberals; it's the politicians against YOU.

Justice Dept. to Congress: Don’t Saddle 4th Amendment on Us
Source: wired.com Submitted: 04/10/2011
--The Obama administration is urging Congress not to adopt legislation that would impose constitutional safeguards on Americans’ e-mail stored in the cloud.

As the law stands now, the authorities may obtain cloud e-mail without a warrant if it is older than 180 days, thanks to the Electronic Communications Privacy Act adopted in 1986. At that time, e-mail left on a third-party server for six months was considered to be abandoned, and thus enjoyed less privacy protection. However, the law demands warrants for the authorities to seize e-mail from a person’s hard drive.

Wachovia Laundered Billions in Drug Money
Source: Guardian.co.uk Submitted: 04/10/2011
--More shocking, and more important, the bank was sanctioned for failing to apply the proper anti-laundering strictures to the transfer of $378.4bn – a sum equivalent to one-third of Mexico's gross national product – into dollar accounts from so-called casas de cambio (CDCs) in Mexico, currency exchange houses with which the bank did business.

"Wachovia's blatant disregard for our banking laws gave international cocaine cartels a virtual carte blanche to finance their operations," said Jeffrey Sloman, the federal prosecutor. Yet the total fine was less than 2% of the bank's $12.3bn profit for 2009. On 24 March 2010, Wells Fargo stock traded at $30.86 – up 1% on the week of the court settlement.

--At the height of the 2008 banking crisis, Antonio Maria Costa, then head of the United Nations office on drugs and crime, said he had evidence to suggest the proceeds from drugs and crime were "the only liquid investment capital" available to banks on the brink of collapse. "Inter-bank loans were funded by money that originated from the drugs trade," he said. "There were signs that some banks were rescued that way."

Ron Paul: ‘New World Order’ Using Financial Crisis, Wars To Enhance Globalism (with Audio)
Source: PrisonPlanet.com Submitted: 04/07/2011
--“The new world order people see it as an opportunity to move one step forward.” Paul stated, alluding to an infamous description of the current US led international coalition of powers.

“Bush senior bragged about that, remember he didn’t want to go to Congress, he came and got a token approval in 1990/91 for the Persian Gulf war, but he got his orders from the UN, he didn’t need to go to Congress… That was the first time I heard a president use the words ‘new world order’, anyone who used that had to be a conspiracy nut, but Bush was saying this is what we need to do for the ‘new world order’.” Paul explained.

“They go to war under NATO and the UN, not by the Congress,” Paul added. “But ultimately the big one is to control the money, so they are making their plans to have a world wide fiat currency through the IMF/World Bank operations.”

Flashback: Ron Paul: Imagine
Source: Ron Paul Submitted: 04/07/2011
Imagine for a moment that somewhere in the middle of Texas there was a large foreign military base, say Chinese or Russian. Imagine that thousands of armed foreign troops were constantly patrolling American streets in military vehicles. Imagine they were here under the auspices of “keeping us safe” or “promoting democracy” or “protecting their strategic interests.”

Imagine that they operated outside of US law, and that the Constitution did not apply to them. Imagine that every now and then they made mistakes or acted on bad information and accidentally killed or terrorized innocent Americans, including women and children, most of the time with little to no repercussions or consequences. Imagine that they set up check points on our soil and routinely searched and ransacked entire neighborhoods of homes. Imagine if Americans were fearful of these foreign troops, and overwhelmingly thought America would be better off without their presence.

Imagine if some Americans were so angry about them being in Texas that they actually joined together to fight them off, in defense of our soil and sovereignty, because leadership in government refused or were unable to do so. Imagine that those Americans were labeled terrorists or insurgents for their defensive actions, and routinely killed, or captured and tortured by the foreign troops on our land. Imagine that the occupiers’ attitude was that if they just killed enough Americans, the resistance would stop, but instead, for every American killed, ten more would take up arms against them, resulting in perpetual bloodshed. Imagine if most of the citizens of the foreign land also wanted these troops to return home. Imagine if they elected a leader who promised to bring them home and put an end to this horror.
