In Defense of Pit Bulls
Source: LewRockwell.com Submitted: 05/09/2010
Ignorance leads to fear. And because of their ever-desperate battle to remain relevant and look busy, politicians love when their constituents fear something.

This is especially true when it comes to the American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT), commonly referred to simply as the Pit Bull. No other breed has been so unfairly maligned. No other breed has been the target of so many sensationalized media frenzies. And no other breed has been as big of a target for snarling, self-righteous politicians.

Civil liberties groups and even some die-hard supporters of the Democratic Party are raising the alarm over the Democrats' proposed immigration overhaul, which would see the creation of a national biometric ID card.

--“Creating a biometric national ID will not only be astronomically expensive, it will usher government into the very center of our lives.

And all of this will come with a new federal bureaucracy – one that combines the worst elements of the DMV and the TSA,” said Christopher Calabrese, ACLU Legislative Counsel.

GM Soy Linked to Sterility and Infant Mortality

"This study was just routine," said Russian biologist Alexey V. Surov, in what could end up as the understatement of this century. Surov and his colleagues set out to discover if Monsanto's genetically modified (GM) soy, grown on 91% of US soybean fields, leads to problems in growth or reproduction. What he discovered may uproot a multi-billion dollar industry.

After feeding hamsters for two years over three generations, those on the GM diet, and especially the group on the maximum GM soy diet, showed devastating results. By the third generation, most GM soy-fed hamsters lost the ability to have babies. They also suffered slower growth, and a high mortality rate among the pups.

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.

Confirmed: Obama authorizes assassination of U.S. citizen

--I wrote at length about the extreme dangers and lawlessness of allowing the Executive Branch the power to murder U.S. citizens far away from a battlefield (i.e., while they're sleeping, at home, with their children, etc.) and with no due process of any kind. I won't repeat those arguments -- they're here and here -- but I do want to highlight how unbelievably Orwellian and tyrannical this is in light of these new articles today.

--No due process is accorded. No charges or trials are necessary. No evidence is offered, nor any opportunity for him to deny these accusations (which he has done vehemently through his family). None of that.

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.

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)

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.

Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth Send Letter to ABC's "Nightline" Producer

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.

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.

As far as I’m concerned, it’s none of the government’s business what an adult does so long as that adult is not violating the rights of others. The “War on Drugs” is a terrible waste of resources, it's one of the main funding sources for organized crime, and it is used to "justify" unacceptable violations of our rights.

Flashback: Fluoride is Poison (Audio)
Source: Alex Jones Submitted: 03/23/2010

Many countries have stopped adding fluoride to their water supply, but the fluoridation industry is still going strong in the U.S. The audio link above provides a short introduction to information that you (more than likely) haven't heard about water fluoridation. If nothing else, please listen to the first 10 minutes or so. (Keep in mind, if your water is "fluoridated," so too is your coffee, your tea, your instant orange juice, or anything else that you make with tap water.)

It is claimed that fluoride is added to your water to help prevent cavities. There is a great deal of research that challenges this assertion, but let’s accept that fluoride does provide some protection against cavities. What is the trade off? The effect fluoride has on the brain seems like a good enough reason to find a “non-fluoride” way to keep your teeth healthy. (There are many other adverse health effects, but this link covers some of the neurological: http://www.fluoridealert.org/health/brain

As always, do your own research and make up your own mind. If you decide you want to eliminate the fluoride that has been added (without your consent) to your diet, you can. For a reasonably affordable option, purchase a water filtration system. (http://www.directive21.com has good prices on Berkey filtration systems. You’ll need the optional “PF-2” filters to remove fluoride.) For a more expensive solution, you can look into atmospheric water generators. http://www.ecoloblue.com is one of many companies that make them.
Kill the Bill - Invoke the 10th

Thomas Jefferson said:

“Whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force”

Ignore Washington D.C.

They are ignoring you, return the favor. In his speech on Saturday, Obama referred to you as “astroturf”. In political terminology that insinuates that you were paid for your phone calls and someone picked up your travel expenses and bought your dinner for your troubles. That’s one way they ignore you. Another way they ignore you is to use an unscrupulous process to pass an unconstitutional health care bill that changes the foundation of your country overnight.

If you’re like me, when you call representatives, write letters or attend tea parties, you pick up the tab and sacrifice your own personal time in hopes that someone will listen. I’d much rather spend my time and money with my family, business or hobbies than hoping my actions will result in my federal representatives actually representing. And anyone that could have done anything about the health care bill is in Washington D.C., you can’t meet with them, you don’t know them and you cannot reasonably hold them accountable. How can you really expect them to feel any pressure to represent you?

It’s About Enriching Bankers and Wall Street
Source: PrisonPlanet.com Submitted: 03/21/2010
--Obamacare also aids the banksters in their plan to bankrupt the United States and turn it into yet another third world cesspool mired in staggering debt. “Look for an even tenser decade ahead, made tenser still by any added costs of Barack Obama’s vast new social welfare program,” writes the neocon David Frum.

Frum is right, of course — and a hypocrite. His former boss, George Bush the Lesser, was led around by the nose by a gaggle of warmongering neocon ideologues. He cranked up the national debt by more than $4 trillion. In addition to funding social programs like Medicare and Social Security Republicans claim to hate — but continue to fund — a lot of the money went to funding military expansion and wars against manufactured enemies.

Democrats, Republicans, neocons, neolibs — they all work for the bankers. All the highfalutin rhetoric they continually espouse is nothing more than hot air on the road to serfdom.

Paul Krugman vs. Reality
Source: CampaignForLiberty.com Submitted: 03/20/2010
In his latest weekly New York Times column, Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman put forward arguments that were so nonsensical that the award committee should ask for its medal back.

Recent rhetoric from Washington has put the economic relationship between the U.S. and China squarely on the front burner, and Krugman is demanding that we crank up the flame. This week 130 members of Congress sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner demanding that the Obama administration designate China as a "currency manipulator". Following that, a bipartisan group of senators introduced a bill that looks to force the Obama administration's hand. For its own part, Beijing invites criticism by continuing to deny its utterly obvious currency agenda.

As these tensions escalate, most economists urge Washington to tread lightly because of the negative fallout for America if China were to begin selling its enormous cache of U.S. Treasury bonds. Krugman pushes back, asserting that the U.S. risks little by playing hardball, and that China has more to lose. He asserts that a Chinese decision to end its purchases of U.S. Treasury debt would make only a marginal impact on long-term interest rates. Did you hear that Stockholm?

GM crops cause liver and kidney damage
Source: NaturalNews.com Submitted: 03/19/2010
(NaturalNews) A report published in the International Journal of Microbiology has verified once again that Monsanto's genetically modified (GM) crops are causing severe health problems. A legal challenge issued against Monsanto forced the multi-national agriculture giant to release raw data revealing that animals fed its patented GM corn suffered liver and kidney damage within just three months.

Adding to the mounting evidence that GM crops are dangerous all around, this information provides a damning indictment against Monsanto which continually insists that its GM products are safe. Not only are GM crops proving disastrous for the environment, but study after study, including those conducted by Monsanto itself, is showing that GM foods are detrimental to health.

Monsanto's data indicated that the company had conducted tests on three varieties of its GM corn, two of which contain the dangerous Bt protein, and one designed specifically to resist Monsanto's Roundup herbicide. All three are widely grown in the United States while only one is currently grown in Europe.

Bernanke footnote: Fed wants end to ‘minimum reserve requirements’
Source: Raw Story Submitted: 03/19/2010
--Hosted on the Federal Reserve's own servers, the written testimony of the bank's chairman explains in plain text what expanding the Fed's powers will do.

"The Federal Reserve believes it is possible that, ultimately, its operating framework will allow the elimination of minimum reserve requirements, which impose costs and distortions on the banking system," footnote number nine, at the bottom of the page, explains without additional qualification.

Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT), who is not running for reelection, is currently pushing a financial reform bill that would grant the Fed unprecedented new powers to regulate financial markets, including insurance companies and small lenders, under the auspice of forcing such firms to lessen their exposure to risky investments.

States’ Rights Is Rallying Cry for Lawmakers
Source: New York Times Submitted: 03/19/2010
--“Who is the sovereign, the state or the federal government?” said State Representative Chris N. Herrod, a Republican from Provo, Utah, and leader of the 30-member Patrick Henry Caucus, which formed last year and led the assault on federal legal barricades in the session that ended Thursday.

--“There’s a tsunami of interest in states’ rights and resistance to an overbearing federal government; that’s what all these measures indicate,” said Gary Marbut, the president of the Montana Shooting Sports Association, which led the drive last year for one of the first “firearms freedoms,” laws like the ones signed last week in South Dakota and Wyoming.

--“Everything we’ve tried to keep the federal government confined to rational limits has been a failure, an utter, unrelenting failure — so why not try something else?” said Thomas E. Woods Jr., a senior fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute, a nonprofit group in Auburn, Ala., that researches what it calls “the scholarship of liberty.”

Aspartame, Aspartic Acid & other Amino Acid ISOLATES
Source: World (Natural) Health Organization Submitted: 03/18/2010
--The focus of our report, is an overview of excitotoxic effects upon brain chemistry due to Aspartame's amino acid isolates.

Amino acid isolates have been artificially separated from the rest of the protein chain and are part of the Aspartame compound. Aspartame is then added to foods during the manufacturing process. Thus, these amino acids are by themselves (isolated), as single or dipeptide molecules. This is very different than the 80-300 amino acid chains that form natural proteins from dietary sources.

Some examples of genetically modified (rDNA) or manufactured amino acid isolates are glutamic acid or glutamate (i.e. monosodium glutamate or MSG), aspartic acid or aspartate, and phenylalanine, among others.

The isolates differ from dietary (with food) amino acids because dietary amino acids are absorbed from the gut. This depends upon the body's digestive action to break down the long amino chains (proteins) and then to absorb them. This means, that through the body's regulation of metabolism, the proteins are broken down slowly, and always in the nutritious mix of other amino acids in the proper enzyme-regulated proportion for use by the body.

This article details why the "naturally occurring" argument (in defense of Aspartic acid that is added to our food) is flawed. It also goes into the neurodegenerative effects of excitotoxins.

I've done a reasonable amount of research into this...the best I can tell is "aspartic acid" and "glutamic acid" are metabolized differently depending on whether they're in their "natural / unbroken" form or not. (I.E. 1 gram of aspartic acid, ingested in natural form, has a minimal effect on blood plasma levels compared to 1 gram of aspartic acid that has been isolated.)

For those of you who take protein supplements, here is a shorter article that reiterates the basics of what I've found:

CIA Mind Control Experiments
Source: New York Post Submitted: 03/17/2010
On Nov. 28, 1953, Frank Olson, a bland, seemingly innocuous 42-year-old government scientist, plunged to his death from room 1018A in New York’s Statler Hotel, landing on a Seventh Avenue sidewalk just opposite Penn Station.

Olson’s ignominious end was written off as an unremarkable suicide of a depressed government bureaucrat who came to New York City seeking psychiatric treatment, so it attracted scant attention at the time.

But 22 years later, the Rockefeller Commission report was released, detailing a litany of domestic abuses committed by the CIA. The ugly truth emerged: Olson’s death was the result of his having been surreptitiously dosed with LSD days earlier by his colleagues.

The shocking disclosure led to President Gerald Ford’s apology to Olson’s widow and his three children, who accepted a $750,000 civil payment for his wrongful death.

Do You Think They'll Get Away With It?
Source: DownsizeDC.org Submitted: 03/17/2010
Can the House pass the Senate healthcare bill without voting on it? If Speaker Pelosi has her way then that may be what happens. It's hard to know whether to laugh or cry, and we keep wondering, can they really get away with it?

For one thing, there's a 1998 Supreme Court ruling that says each chamber of Congress must approve the exact same wording of a bill before that bill can become law.

You wouldn't think Congress would need a court ruling to determine this, but they are politicians, so they need lots of remedial assistance with simple logic.

Obama Supports DNA Sampling Upon Arrest

--When it comes to civil liberties, the Obama administration has come under fire for often mirroring his predecessor’s practices surrounding state secrets, the Patriot Act and domestic spying. There’s also Gitmo, Jay Bybee and John Yoo.

Now there’s DNA sampling. Obama told Walsh he supported the federal government, as well as the 18 states that have varying laws requiring compulsory DNA sampling of individuals upon an arrest for crimes ranging from misdemeanors to felonies.

Support for Non-Interventionist Foreign Policy
Source: Sangamon County Libertarians Submitted: 03/15/2010
--With 12 trillion dollars of debt and tens of trillions in unfunded liabilities the country is broke. The SCLP thinks that it is wrong to put our children into debt bondage to police the entire world. It makes no sense to go into debt to bomb and then rebuild foreign nations. This money should be kept and used by its rightful owners, the American People themselves.

The perpetual war on terror has led to a perpetual war on civil liberties. Government and corporations working in tandem to monitor the American People should be a concern to all. A surveillance society is being developed. Many dismiss this concern. But history and the Founding Fathers would side with those who wish to protect and guard liberty. The current foreign policy increases the threats to liberty both foreign and domestic.

The Beck Deception
Source: granddelusion.wordpress.com Submitted: 03/12/2010
--If you are a die-hard Glenn Beck fan (like I was), please keep a very open mind as you read this. Our freedom depends on it.

--As I continued to watch Glenn Beck with an open mind, I began to see signs of deception. I began to see signs of neo-conservatism. I hadn’t even finished my “Arguing with Idiots” book. Issues and actions that were extreme violations of the Constitution and our freedoms and liberties that were discussed all over the internet went for days unmentioned on his program. If and when they were mentioned, they were not given the attention they deserve. Some were blown off entirely.

As I dug more and more into the 9/11 Truth Movement and I (saw) the legitimate questions coming from patriots, our war veterans, our military leaders, 9/11 commission members, aerospace engineers, experts, historians, pilots, architects and engineers, families of those killed, economists, I realized these people were not the “kooks” that Beck described. They were also not “dangerous” as Beck described. I had to ask myself why he would mislead his followers. Beck even went so far as to say that he “began hating the families of those who died on 9/11.” Someone who told us to “Question Boldly” suddenly had a zero tolerance level for questioning even from families who had more reason than anyone else to question.

Ex-police officer admits role in conspiracy to cover-up shooting

--"The police maintained that they fired at the civilians in self-defense, after the civilian fired at police," the statement said. "However ... Lohman pleaded guilty in federal court to conspiring with other officers to cover up what he had determined was a 'bad shoot' on the bridge. Today, defendant Lehrmann admitted that he also knew of and participated in a conspiracy to obstruct justice in the investigation of the shooting."

--"Lehrmann admitted that he participated with his supervisors in the creation of a report that included false statements by the officers involved in the shooting; false claims about a gun that had in fact been planted by the investigator; and fabricated statements from witnesses who did not really exist," prosecutors said.

Well, amazingly, I watched all 10 parts and enjoyed it all. (Most speakers start to lose me after half an hour...)

If you want to save some time, start on part 3 or 4...but if you've got the time, start on "1" and stop watching when you're bored. And don't be surprised if, like me, you wind up at the end of part "10" an hour and 40 minutes later. :-)
