Kill the ‘Kill Switch’
Source: Submitted: 06/24/2010
Who else but Joe Lieberman would introduce a bill to give the President the power to shut down the Internet with the flick of a switch? I’m afraid of the answer to that question, and you should be, too. However, it’s hardly surprising America’s premier authoritarian warmonger – author of a bill that would strip American citizenship from anyone even vaguely suspected of “terrorism” – would come up with a scheme like this.  Read full article »
Send the New York D.A. a Message about WTC7
Source: Submitted: 06/20/2010
Channel Your Voice began in March 2010 when thousands of people came together to educate all 51 New York City Council Members and hundreds of City Council staff about the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7. It turned out a majority of them did not know that a third building collapsed on September 11, 2001.

This lack of awareness among those in the New York City government led NYC CAN to ask the question: how can we expect a new investigation when people with the power to launch a new investigation are not familiar with the most basic facts?

Channel Your Voice addresses this problem by channeling the voices of thousands of people to educate strategically selected public officials about the most obvious flaw in the official account of September 11th, and one which they have the legal authority and moral responsibility to investigate: the collapse of WTC 7.

Healthcare Fraud (Refuse to accept it)
Source: Submitted: 06/17/2010
"This news report informs us that vast numbers of Americans will have to change their health insurance policies, despite repeated promises from the President, and other politicians, that this wouldn't happen.

When a business does something similar -- selling one thing, but delivering another -- you politicians rush to the TV cameras, calling for investigations, new laws, new regulations, and prison sentences for CEOs.

Well . . . shouldn't you politicians go to jail for the fraudulent way you sold the healthcare bill (or the war in Iraq, or a host of other things)?

What's even worse is that I have no choice but to submit to your fraud. If Walmart or Microsoft lie to me, or even disappoint me, I can take my business to Target or Kmart or Apple or Linux, but I have no such choice with you.

I am prohibited, by threats of State violence, from buying my health insurance outside of your rigged system. Neither can I easily fire you in order to gain representation that will restore my freedom. To make that happen . . ."

Neo-Eugenics: Vaccines & GMO To Reduce Population?
Source: Submitted: 06/16/2010
--The results of the WHO-Rockefeller project were put into mass application on human guinea pigs in the early 1990’s. The WHO oversaw massive vaccination campaigns against tetanus in Nicaragua, Mexico and the Philippines. Comite Pro Vida de Mexico, a Roman Catholic lay organization, became suspicious of the motives behind the WHO program and decided to test numerous vials of the vaccine and found them to contain human Chorionic Gonadotrophin, or hCG. That was a curious component for a vaccine designed to protect people against lock-jaw arising from infection with rusty nail wounds or other contact with certain bacteria found in soil. The tetanus disease was indeed, also rather rare. It was also curious because hCG was a natural hormone needed to maintain a pregnancy. However, when combined with a tetanus toxoid carrier, it stimulated formation of antibodies against hCG, rendering a woman incapable of maintaining a pregnancy, a form of concealed abortion. Similar reports of vaccines laced with hCG hormones came from the Philippines and Nicaragua.9

--GMO crops have never been proven safe for human or animal consumption. Moreover, they are inherently genetically ‘unstable’ as they are an unnatural product of introducing a foreign bacteria such as Bacillus Thuringiensis (Bt) or other material into the DNA of a given seed to change its traits. Perhaps equally dangerous are the ‘paired’ chemical herbicides sold as a mandatory part of a GMO contract, such as Monsanto’s Roundup, the most widely used such herbicide in the world. It contains highly toxic glyphosate compounds that have been independently tested and proven to exist in toxic concentrations in GMO applications far above that safe for humans or animals. Tests show that tiny amounts of glyphosate compounds would do damage to a human umbilical, embryonic and placental cells in a pregnant woman drinking the ground water near a GMO field.13

Why the fluoridation of public water supplies is illegal
Source: Submitted: 06/13/2010
Municipalities all across America are currently dripping fluoride chemicals into their public water supply, dosing over a hundred million Americans with a chemical that they claim "prevents cavities."

What's interesting here is that this biological effect of "preventing cavities" is a medical claim, according to the FDA. And as such, making this claim instantly and automatically transforms fluoride into a "drug" under currently FDA regulations.

This means that cities and towns all across America are now practicing medicine without a license by dripping liquid medication into the public water supply without the consent of those who are swallowing the medication.

On the topic of Fluoride, there is a short book called "The Fluoride Deception." (240 pages with 100 + pages of notes / references if you want to check sources.) It isn't just about "water fluoridation," but it does cover that topic very well. (It explains how fluoridation was "sold" to the public with help from men like Edward Bernays and "safety research" that was funded by the Fluoride-polluting industries.) Everything is written in simple language. Some pages are a little “slow” (a lot of details / names / places) but they're surrounded by very well written and engaging stories. I guarantee that most people will be shocked by the information contained in this book…information that, although “readily available,” has been ignored and buried by the government and media.

End The Mandate

--This isn't about what Congress wants to "give" Americans. It's not about health care. It's about power. It's about what THEY get. It's always been about what they get. And their "take" is staggering. Passage of ObamaCare means:

* Statist politicians will collect more than $570 BILLION in new taxes on everything from prescription drugs and private insurance plans to medical device manufacturers;

* Big Government will grow even bigger as the IRS alone will hire thousands of new IRS employees to "ensure compliance;"

* The power of politicians and bureaucrats will expand dramatically as they FORCE U.S. citizens to buy insurance as a condition of citizenship and seize unprecedented control over American health care and businesses of every size.

So, you and I have a choice to make. We can give up and give in. Or we can FIGHT BACK.

I still receive emails almost daily from people who point out what's wrong with "the left" or "the right." I hope this post will provide another perspective...

The "left / right" paradigm is an instrument of control. It's designed to keep us divided and at each others' throats. (Classic "balance-of-power" politics. Play two sides against each other, weaken both sides and gain power in the process.)

Wake Up the District Attorney With 1,000 Letters: WEEK 1
Source: Submitted: 06/03/2010
Today is the first day of our 4-week campaign urging the Manhattan District Attorney to investigate the destruction of World Trade Center Building 7. To bring Building 7 fully to the attention of the District Attorney, our goal is to flood the DA’s office with 1,000 letters and faxes per week, because anything short of 1,000 will fail to show just how widespread the desire for a new investigation is. We are counting on you to take part in this gigantic grassroots effort no matter who you are or how busy you are.

--Each week will cover a different topic so that the District Attorney can be comprehensively educated about the destruction of Building 7 in a way that is easy to absorb. Not overwhelming with them with all sorts of information is key. This is how the weeks will go:

Week 1: Getting the DA’s office to watch footage of Building 7
Week 2: Testimonial Evidence
Week 3: Physical Evidence

Latest Vaccine Contamination Scandal (Audio)
Source: Submitted: 06/01/2010
In the past few months, the American public has been informed that two infant diarrhea vaccines – GlaxoSmithKline’s Rotarix and Merck’s RotaTeq – are contaminated with pig virus DNA. 1,2 But there’s a difference between the two vaccines: Rotarix contains parts of a pig virus that does not make pigs sick while Merck’s RotaTeq contains parts of a pig virus that kills baby pigs. 3,4,5

How many mothers know that, when Merck’s diarrhea vaccine is squirted into the mouths of their two month old babies, they are swallowing parts of a pig virus that suppresses the immune systems of baby pigs so badly, they waste away and can suffer respiratory, kidney, reproductive and brain damage before dying? 6,7,8

Virginia Tech professor uncovered truth about lead in D.C. water
Source: Submitted: 05/30/2010
Sometimes Don Quixote beats the windmill.

It happened for Marc Edwards, a lean, intense Virginia Tech environmental engineering professor. Drawing on what he called his own "world-class stubbornness," he mounted a six-year campaign that succeeded last week in forcing the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to admit that it had misled the public about the risk of lead in the District's drinking water.

The CDC, which is the nation's principal public health agency, made the confession in a "Notice to Readers" published in an official weekly bulletin Friday. It came a day after a scathing House subcommittee report said the agency knowingly used flawed and incomplete data when it assured D.C. residents in 2004 that their health hadn't been hurt by spikes in lead in the drinking water.

--Edwards said the key breakthrough came in early 2008. That's when he finally persuaded Children's National Medical Center to share data so he could do an independent study of lead levels in D.C. children's blood samples. The CDC and other agencies were refusing to provide him with such information.

Once he had the data, Edwards said, "it took me all of an hour to see that something very bad had happened to D.C.'s children." Blood lead levels had risen to dangerous levels, at least partly because of previously reported increases in lead levels in the drinking water. That meant hundreds or thousands of children suffered reduced IQ and organ damage, he said.

Asset Forfeiture: Are You Guilty Until Proved Innocent?
Source: Submitted: 05/25/2010
"Under civil forfeiture, police and prosecutors can seize your car or other property, sell it and use the proceeds to fund agency budgets, all without so much as charging you with a crime. Unlike criminal forfeiture, where property is taken after its owner has been found guilty in a court of law, with civil forfeiture, owners need not be charged with or convicted of a crime to lose homes, cars, cash or other property. Americans are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, but civil forfeiture turns that principle on its head." - The Institute For Justice, "Policing For Profits"

--Civil asset forfeiture is a moral and constitutional outrage. Yet the courts permit it. Only public pressure will bring this corrupt and barbaric practice to an end, so we're asking you to tell Congress to End Asset Forfeiture.

And please, don't think that $5 per month is too little to help. If all 30,000 DownsizeDC members gave $5 per month, that would provide the organization a steady income of $150K per month...hardly "pocket change."

While taking groceries to her car, a man approached an 82-year-old woman and said something horrible to her: “This is your day. You are too old to be alive anyway.” According to police, he then grabbed the woman’s cane and beat her. Despite the savage assault, the elderly woman managed to reach into her purse, draw her gun and fire a shot. The man fled and, upon hearing the shot, store employees quickly came to the woman’s aid.

Raw Milk: FDA Claims You Have No Right To Drink It

--So what we have here is a classic case of a large and powerful industry pushing government regulators to outlaw competing products so that it can monopolize the market. It's the same thing that Big Pharma does in getting the FDA to destroy nutritional supplement companies. But now it's happening with raw milk, too.

What's next? Will all farmer's markets be outlawed because the veggies haven't all been irradiated or pasteurized?

As usual, it's all about the money, and as you follow the money trail all the way up to the federal level, you find the same thing happening everywhere: At the FDA, USDA, FTC and so on. U.S. government regulators have become monopoly market enforcers for Big Business, and they won't let anything get in their way... not even personal health freedoms or just basic access to food.

What I sent to my "Representatives" in Washington:

Don't bother sending me a canned reply. I know what the "banking system" IS, I know why it was created, and I know the interests that it serves. If you DON'T understand, perhaps you should read my book. (Dishonest Money: Financing the Road to Ruin.)

I will not accuse you of willfully serving those who are using their financial power to destroy the United States. Rather, I will simply point out that it is being done and that you, by refusing to confront the concentrated financial power, are enabling the process.

If you took your oath to "preserve, protect and defend" the Constitution and Bill of Rights seriously, here are some quotes you should familiarize yourself with. (All emphasis added.)

“Some…believe we are part of a secret cabal working AGAINST THE BEST INTERESTS of the United States...and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” - David Rockefeller in his book Memoirs, page 405

"We shall have world government…The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest.” -James Paul Warburg to the United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations

“The powers of financial capitalism had (a) far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to DOMINATE the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole...Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world.” -Carroll Quigley in his book Tragedy and Hope page 324

"nation state as a fundamental unit of man's organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force: INTERNATIONAL BANKS and MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS are ACTING and PLANNING in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation-state." --Zbigniew Brzezinski

"Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws." Mayer Amschel Rothschild

"...they who control the credit of a nation, direct the policy of Governments and hold in the hollow of their hands the destiny of the people.

Government 'knew Guantánamo prisoners were innocent'
Source: Times Online Submitted: 04/11/2010
George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld covered up that hundreds of innocent men were sent to the Guantánamo Bay prison camp because they feared that releasing them would harm the push for war in Iraq and the broader War on Terror, according to a new document obtained by The Times.

The accusations were made by Lawrence Wilkerson, a top aide to Colin Powell, the former Republican Secretary of State, in a signed declaration to support a lawsuit filed by a Guantánamo detainee. It is the first time that such allegations have been made by a senior member of the Bush Administration.

--Colonel Wilkerson, a long-time critic of the Bush Administration’s approach to counter-terrorism and the war in Iraq, claimed that the majority of detainees — children as young as 12 and men as old as 93, he said — never saw a US soldier when they were captured. He said that many were turned over by Afghans and Pakistanis for up to $5,000. Little or no evidence was produced as to why they had been taken.

Instead, in Barack Obama's America, the way guilt is determined for American citizens -- and a death penalty imposed -- is that the President, like the King he thinks he is, secretly decrees someone's guilt as a Terrorist. He then dispatches his aides to run to America's newspapers -- cowardly hiding behind the shield of anonymity which they're granted -- to proclaim that the Guilty One shall be killed on sight because the Leader has decreed him to be a Terrorist.

Nearly half of US households escape fed income tax
Source: Washington Post Submitted: 04/11/2010
WASHINGTON -- Tax Day is a dreaded deadline for millions, but for nearly half of U.S. households it's simply somebody else's problem.

About 47 percent will pay no federal income taxes at all for 2009. Either their incomes were too low, or they qualified for enough credits, deductions and exemptions to eliminate their liability. That's according to projections by the Tax Policy Center, a Washington research organization.

Ron Paul, once again, demonstrates "intellectual consistency."

Without intellectual consistency, the people can be easily divided and kept at each others' throats. With it, they can more accurately judge the character and actions of their "leaders." (They can actually unite against misdeeds instead of "reacting," like Pavlov's dogs, to rhetoric and labels.)

This is why people like Ron Paul are so dangerous to the establishment. He provides a conceptual framework that is NOT provided within the manipulative "left / right" paradigm. For those honest enough to judge "deeds" instead of "words," the intellectually consistent position becomes the only position…and it alone threatens unprincipled / abusive power.
Economic Warfare (How it's Done)

--The destruction of Jefferson County reveals the basic battle plan of these modern barbarians, the way that banks like JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs have systematically set out to pillage towns and cities from Pittsburgh to Athens. These guys aren't number-crunching whizzes making smart investments; what they do is find suckers in some municipal-finance department, corner them in complex lose-lose deals and flay them alive. In a complete subversion of free-market principles, they take no risk, score deals based on political influence rather than competition, keep consumers in the dark — and walk away with big money.  Read full article »

Growing power of independent Web journalism
Source: Yahoo Submitted: 04/06/2010
--When a nonprofit group this week released video footage, leaked via a source in the Pentagon, showing a 2007 U.S. helicopter attack on a group of civilians in Baghdad, the clip unleashed a viral online sensation and ignited an intense debate about the conduct of U.S. forces in Iraq. But the simple fact of the video's release also reflects the ongoing revolution in how news gets produced and published.

--Seven noncombatants were killed in the Baghdad attack — among them a driver (Saeed Chmagh) and photographer (Namir Noor-Eldeen) employed by the Reuters news service. Reuters, indeed, had been seeking to obtain internal Pentagon materials pertaining to the attack — including the footage that went online yesterday — for the past three years, using the Freedom of Information Act. The agency's efforts had so far proved fruitless.

And that's where WikiLeaks came in. The nonprofit website launched in 2006 as an online clearinghouse for whistleblowers seeking to publicize leaked government documents across the world. But prior to posting the video footage, the site had functioned as repository of information; with this latest scoop, which it says came from "a courageous source" within the U.S. military, it has morphed into an investigative news source in its own right.

The criminal NSA eavesdropping program
Source: Salon Submitted: 04/05/2010
--Bush's NSA program violated the criminal law (FISA). That law provides that anyone who violates it has committed a felony and shall be subject to 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine for each offense. The law really does say that. Just click on that link and you'll see. It's been obvious for more than four years that Bush, Cheney, NSA Director (and former CIA Director) Michael Hayden and many other Bush officials broke the law -- committed felonies -- in spying on Americans without warrants. Yet another federal judge has now found their conduct illegal. If we were a country that actually lived under The Rule of Law, this would be a huge story, one that would produce the same consequences for the lawbreakers as a bank robbery, embezzlement or major drug dealing. But since we're not such a country, it isn't and it doesn't.

Although news reports are focusing (appropriately) on the fact that Bush's NSA program was found to be illegal, the bulk of Judge Walker's opinion was actually a scathing repudiation of the Obama DOJ. In fact, the opinion spent almost no time addressing the merits of the claim that the NSA program was legal. That's because the Obama DOJ -- exactly like the Bush DOJ in the case before Judge Taylor -- refused to offer legal justifications to the court for this eavesdropping. Instead, the Obama DOJ took the imperial and hubristic position that the court had no right whatsoever to rule on the legality of the program because (a) plaintiffs could not prove they were subjected to the secret eavesdropping (and thus lacked "standing" to sue) and (b) the NSA program was such a vital "state secret" that courts were barred from adjudicating its legality.

Those were the arguments that Judge Walker scathingly rejected. All of the court's condemnations of the DOJ's pretense to imperial power were directed at the Obama DOJ's "state secrets" argument (which is exactly the same radical and lawless version, as TPM compellingly documented, used by the Bush DOJ to such controversy). From the start, the Obama DOJ has engaged in one extraordinary maneuver after the next to shield this criminal surveillance program from judicial scrutiny. Indeed, their stonewalling at one point became so extreme that the court actually threatened the Obama DOJ with sanctions. And what TPM calls the Obama DOJ's "Bush-mimicking state secrets defense" has been used by them in one case after the next to conceal and shield from judicial review a wide range of Bush crimes -- including torture, renditions and surveillance.

CNN Attempt To Portray Patriots As Terrorists Backfires, Segment Fails To Air (Video)
Source: Submitted: 03/30/2010
A CNN Anderson Cooper segment which was set to demonize critics of big government and Obamacare as violent extremists backfired after radio host Alex Jones pointed out that corporate media outlets like CNN were responsible for killing over a million Iraqis as a consequence of their repeated lies about weapons of mass destruction.

Jones was invited for an interview on Friday to appear later that evening on Anderson Cooper 360, but the segment never aired, presumably because CNN program chiefs were so embarrassed at Jones’ proficiency in exposing how corporate news networks owned by the military-industrial complex were a far deadlier threat than any of the menagerie of domestic “extremists” CNN has sought to demonize in recent weeks.

Jones immediately recognized the tone of the hit piece when the interviewer began a barrage of questions attempting to discredit grassroots political movements by smearing them as dangerous radicals.

Watch the interview below, which was filmed by one of Jones’ crew. CNN’s questions are not audible because they refused to allow Jones’ cameraman access to the feed.

Oklahoma, Georgia Step Towards Health Care Freedom

The legislatures in Oklahoma and Georgia both took a step closer to health care freedom within their state boundaries. Both states are considering legislation known as the “Health Care Freedom Act,” which, is passed, would make public policy for the state that every person within the state is and shall be free to choose or decline to choose any mode of securing health care services “without penalty or threat of penalty by the federal government of the United States of America.”  Read full article »
Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth Send Letter to ABC's "Nightline" Producer
Source: Submitted: 03/30/2010
ABC Nightline's piece on the 9/11 Truth Movement qualifies as nothing short of journalistic fraud. Instead of presenting an objective look at the surprisingly large numbers of people who are questioning the government's official conspiracy theory involving 19 Arabs, Chris Bury's piece was clearly intended to equate in viewers' minds those in the 9/11 Truth Movement with gun-wielding crazies like the recent "Pentagon shooter" John Patrick Bedell.

While this movement includes a wide variety people including thousands of architects, engineers, firefighters, academicians and scientists, Nightline seemed intent on creating an oversimplified caricature of what it disparagingly called a "viral community of true believers," that is, people who are crazy enough to suspect the government might be hiding something when there's no evidence to support that idea. There's actually a lot of evidence, but TV shows like Nightline are not interested in looking at it, much less refuting it. The Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth were featured as keynote speakers at the same conference that you attended and now host over 1,000 A/E petition signers—all demanding a new investigation into the destruction of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11. Why did you not ask us what evidence we might have to support our call for a re-investigation?

It's really pretty amusing to watch the establishment media continue to try and avoid the growing / diverse body of experts who, with evidence, are pointing out the obvious. (The official account of 9/11 is a lie.)

It must have been so much easier to control the public mind when “ridicule” was enough to scare people away from looking into a topic and “refusing to report on evidence / experts” kept people from ever hearing the other side. Newsflash: Those days are gone.

On that note, here are some other people they don't want to talk to:

The video above sums it up in about 3 minutes.

They started on me with this crap when I was 15 years old. From what I can tell, anyone who "disrupts the orderly system" the social engineers have created for us winds up in contact with these creatures.

Once you're in their system, it's a full time push to convince you that there is something physically wrong with your mind because you’re unable or unwilling to “get with the program.”

It goes something like this: "We want to help. Don’t worry, it's not your's a chemical imbalance. Here, just take these drugs and we might even be able to get you money for your ‘disability.’"

Sadly, a lot of people get sucked in. –Independent minds lost or greatly weakened. (Nothing like chemical lobotomies to keep the people in line.)
Pfizer to pay $142M for drug fraud
Source: Submitted: 03/28/2010
Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer has been ordered to pay $142 million US in damages for fraudulently marketing gabapentin, an anti-seizure drug marketed under the name Neurontin.

--Data revealed in a string of U.S. lawsuits indicates the drug was promoted by the drug company as a treatment for for pain, migraines and bipolar disorder — even though it wasn't effective in treating these conditions and was actually toxic in certain cases, according to the Therapautics Initiative, an independent drug research group at the University of British Columbia. The trials forced the company to release all of its studies on the drug, including the ones it kept hidden.

"The much larger majority of people will not get any benefit and many of them will have chronic neurotoxicity or poisoning of the brain," said Dr. Tom Perry of the Therapeutics Initiative.

Whistle-blower in Pfizer healthcare fraud speaks out (with Audio)
--Mr Kopchinski described how Pfizer's 3,000 sales representatives were pressured to promote Bextra in areas of medicine where the use of the drug had not been studied. ...He also described how they were told to push the dosage up when promoting the drug to physicians, in some cases up to eight times the recommended dosage. "At that particular dosage you're subjecting patients to a host of side effects and other areas that have not been studied scientifically, so literally you have no idea what's going to happen," he said. Kophinski fought 6 years, lost his job and depleted his savings to fight for the truth.


Pfizer Pleads Guilty in "Bextra," Case - Fined Billions
Pfizer, the world's largest drugs company, has been hit with the biggest criminal fine in US history as part of a $2.3bn settlement with federal prosecutors for mispromoting medicines and for paying kickbacks to compliant doctors.

In a blow to its reputation in the eyes of doctors and patients, Pfizer pleaded guilty to misbranding the painkiller Bextra, withdrawn from the market in 2004, by promoting the drug for uses that were not approved by medical regulators.

The Purposes And Pitfalls Of Revolution (Highly Recommended)
Source: Submitted: 03/26/2010
In every human being there exists a balance, an internal fulcrum, a guide to what is honest, to what is true and constant. When this balance within us is broken, by ourselves or by others, it tends to attract grief and desolation, like some terrible and ferocious gravity. Just as this is true for individuals, so is it true for nations.

A country’s political structure must reflect accurately the dreams and aspirations of its people, and foster those dreams with respect and care. In most cases throughout history, this does not occur. Often, the desires of government break from the life of the people and it becomes an obstacle to the intellectual, philosophical, and spiritual progress of men it was originally designed to protect.

--American politics today are like an overly long joke with an unintelligible punchline at the end. Many in the U.S. are so caught up in the pageantry of the left/right paradigm that they don’t realize it is a ridiculous farce. There are even people (on both sides) who understand that we are dealing with a globalist minority, but still think that these elites are somehow affiliated Democrats, or dedicated “Right Wingers.” They write blogs and journals and diatribes on the threat of centralization and global government, raising my personal hopes, then end up blaming all our ills on “extremist right wing nuts” or “extremist left wing commies.” I can’t help but slap my own forehead in disappointment. The insane obsession with Left and Right must end if we are ever to stop the Globalists from thriving.
