Operation Health Freedom
Source: Submitted: 11/10/2009
Campaign for Liberty believes America's health care system is in desperate need of reform, but current proposals only cement the status quo by mandating further government interference and requiring Americans to either carry a government-approved plan or surrender more of their hard-earned money to the IRS.

There is a real alternative to yielding more power over our lives to Washington: implementing a plan centered on freedom, choice, and faith in the American taxpayers that they know how to spend their money better than some unelected bureaucrat.

In pursuit of this alternative, Campaign for Liberty is proud to unveil our Health Freedom Plan.

Our package includes legislation introduced by Congressman Ron Paul and Congressman John Shadegg. The cornerstone is Ron Paul's H.R. 1495, the Comprehensive Health Care Reform Act of 2009, which provides all Americans with a tax credit for 100% of health care expenses, a tax credit for premiums for high-deductible insurance policies connected with a Health Savings Account (HSA), and allows seniors to use funds in an HSA to pay for a medigap policy. In addition, it makes all medical expenses tax deductible.

Debunking a "Man-Made Global Warming" Alarmist - Point by Point
Source: Submitted: 11/09/2009
Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd spewed out a rhetorical barrage on climate skeptics worldwide. See: Australian PM warns skeptics 'are too 'dangerous to ignore' and are 'holding the world to ransom' – November 6, 2009. Also see: here and here for more coverage of Rudd's speech.

Climate Depot has undertaken a point by point rebuttal to Rudd's claims. The full text of Rudd's speech is available here.

Rudd Claim: Skeptics are “powerful enough to threaten a deal on global climate change both in Copenhagen and beyond.”

Climate Depot Response: Yes, skepticism, the foundation of science, is and always has been strong enough to derail lavishly funded and politically motivated science based on wildly speculative climate model “predictions” and distortions of past climate records. A “scientifically meaningless” domestic carbon trading or international treaties will not impact global climate in any detectable ways, but will have huge human impacts.

--Rudd Claim: “The vested interests at work are simply too great.”

Climate Depot Response: What “vested interests?” You are not claiming that skeptics have some sort of funding that is in any way comparable to the tens of billions spent promoting climate fears, are you? See: Gore's path to become the first 'Carbon Billionaire' and see: The Global Warming Science Machine: $79 Billion and Counting.

When Is It Legal To Frame A Man For Murder?
Source: Submitted: 11/06/2009
--"If a prosecutor KNOWINGLY (emphasis added) introduces false evidence at trial, that prosecutor is absolutely immune from lawsuit," explains Stephen Sanders, an attorney representing Richter and Hrvol. The rationale is that if prosecutors could be blamed for errors in a trial, they would become vulnerable targets for any litigious convict with an ax to grind.

"This means that some people who are genuinely wronged by a prosecutor [are not] able to recover," Sanders concedes. "But better that, the court says, than have prosecutors plagued by endless nuisance litigation or have them make decisions about whether or not to bring someone to trial based on whether they think they're going to get sued."

--Sanders says his clients have not admitted to any wrongdoing. They haven't admitted or denied that they framed two men for murder. Instead, they are claiming that their guilt doesn't matter, that it was legal either way.

But to McGhee and Harrington, it does matter. They spent 25 years behind bars for a crime that they almost certainly did not commit. And now the men have gone to the Supreme Court not for justice but for the simple right to seek it.

So, based on this argument, a prosecutor can simply PAY a witness to say they saw you commit a crime (knowing full well the witness is lying in exchange for compensation) and then use that "eyewitness testimony" to convict you. "Liberty and JUSTICE for all" indeed.

Urgent Action Needed to Save Audit the Fed
Source: Submitted: 11/03/2009
--We have all worked so hard to make an Audit of the Federal Reserve a reality. Together, we have led the fight to get congressional hearings, 308 cosponsors, and unprecedented attention around the country.

Now, you and I face our biggest challenge yet. And Ron Paul needs your help!

Mel Watt (D-NC), Chairman of the Monetary Policy Subcommittee, has sided with banking interests and is working to gut substantial audit provisions from H.R. 1207. The bill Congressman Watt has sent to the full Financial Services Committee contains no audit of the Fed’s monetary policy-making authority or transparency of the Fed’s secret agreements with foreign central banks.

Without these provisions, a so-called “audit” of the Fed would be worthless.

The Nature of Government Power
Source: Larken Rose Submitted: 10/31/2009
--As I've said before, as bluntly as I can, the belief in "authority" stems from a refusal to grow up. As kids, we had big people we could whine to, to try to get whatever we wanted. When we get older, some of us realize that real life isn't like that, but some of us still want a giant nanny who we can whine to, who will save the day, fix everything, and take care of us. They wish, as hard as they can, that some huge, powerful entity will be there, to fight for them, to be on their side, to make sure that everything turns out well--the good are rewarded, the wicked are punished, there is truth and justice, and we all live happily ever after.

If such a thing was possible--some magical, omnipotent force which would always make good prevail--I'd be as thrilled as anyone. But there isn't. And expecting "government" to be that all-knowing, all-caring, all-powerful savior and protector is just plain idiotic! It never has been, never will be, and never could be.

"But we need government to protect the little guy!" Okay, but why would it? Sure, you might want that, but why would you ever expect it to happen? Look at the authoritarian regimes that talked the most about helping the lower classes, about being for "the people," and being against "the rich." That was the sales pitch for the Soviet Union, Red China, Hitler's Germany, and many more--but what was the result? Why do such regimes always end up creating a super-rich, all-powerful ruling elite, which constantly stomps on, oppresses, robs, and often murders "the little guy"? The answer is nothing more than basic human nature and simple economics. If there is a throne to be bought, someone rich will buy it.

--The answer is to not have an authoritarian control machine to begin with. If you don't have an all-knowing, all-powerful master, he can't be bought. But if you do have one, he will immediately be bought. Maybe some day people will understand that, and they'll stop engaging in the silly ritual of creating giant, unstoppable monsters, and then hoping they'll do the right thing.

Speculation Mounts Over Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Bid
Source: Submitted: 10/30/2009
CNN and the L.A. Times are speculating that Congressman Ron Paul may be about to announce that he will run for President in 2012 following the revelation that the Texan will speak at rallies in two key early caucus states next month.

Paul will visit the key early primary state of South Carolina on Nov. 9 to give a speech on “the future of individual liberty and the importance of the U.S. Constitution” at the University of South Carolina. He then moves on to Iowa, another key early presidential battleground, on Nov. 13 to speak to students at Iowa State University.

“This morning speculation was rife that South Carolina, which holds one of the early primaries in the presidential calendar, could be the launching pad for a new Ron Paul bid,” reports the L.A. Times’ Johanna Neuman.

Economics and Moral Courage
Source: Lew Rockwell Submitted: 10/29/2009
--Now, people outside of academia may not understand what this means. But inside academia, people know all about it. There are people in every department who expend the bulk of their efforts on the pettiest form of professional advancement. What is at stake? Not that much. But as we know, the smaller the stakes, the more vicious the fight.

Among the prizes are better titles, higher salaries, the ability to get the best possible teaching times, to reduce one's teaching load (ideally to zero) and office hours, to advance one's favorite people, to get a larger office with a puffier chair, to know all the right people in the profession, and, best of all, to lord it over others: to be able to reduce the influence of your enemies and increase the influence of your friends in a way that can cause people to become your lifetime minions and supplicants.

--Outsiders imagine that university life is all about ideas. But insiders know that the real battles that take place within departments have very little to do with ideas or principles. Strange coalitions can develop, based entirely on the pettiest of issues. Professional ambitions are the driving force, not principles. There are people in every department who are highly accomplished, but whose accomplishments have nothing to do with science, teaching truth, or pursuing a vocation as a real scholar.

Even if you don't follow "economics" and even if you don't know "Mises" from "Keynes," this is a great read.

It's a moving story of moral courage, integrity and sacrifice. It beautifully illustrates the value of taking the long / principled road that leads to progress, when others are taking the the short-sighted / expedient road (straight into the dustbin of history.)

There are also some really great statements, not the least of which includes:

"...the most dangerous person on earth is an arrogant intellectual who lacks the humility necessary to see that society needs no masters and cannot be planned from the top down. An intellectual lacking humility can become a tyrant — and an accomplice in the destruction of civilization itself."

Soros: China Will Lead New World Order (with Video)
Source: Paul Joseph Watson Submitted: 10/28/2009
Billionaire globalist George Soros told the Financial Times during an interview that China will supplant the United States as the leader of the new world order and that America should not resist the country’s decline as the dollar weakens, living standards drop, and a new global currency is introduced.

Asked what Obama should discuss when he visits China next month, Soros stated, “This would be the time because I think you really need to bring China into the creation of a new world order, financial world order,” adding that China was a reluctant member of the IMF who didn’t make enough of a contribution.

“I think you need a new world order that China has to be part of the process of creating it and they have to buy in, they have to own it in the same way as the United States owns…the current order,” said Soros, adding that the G20 was a move in this direction.

Taken from "Dishonest Money":

"By weakening us financially, those who control our monetary system are incrementally increasing their leverage. A wealthy, proud, and independent nation would never willingly surrender its sovereignty and ability to choose its own destiny. An economically devastated nation, chaotic and struggling to maintain social order, is another story altogether. Such a nation would be far more willing to accept help from a global body like the United Nations or IMF/World Bank, regardless of the strings attached. And THAT is the ultimate “profit” being sought in this game. The real prize is control."
U.S. Official Resigns Over Afghan War

--A former Marine Corps captain with combat experience in Iraq, Hoh had also served in uniform at the Pentagon, and as a civilian in Iraq and at the State Department. By July, he was the senior U.S. civilian in Zabul province, a Taliban hotbed.

But last month, in a move that has sent ripples all the way to the White House, Hoh, 36, became the first U.S. official known to resign in protest over the Afghan war, which he had come to believe simply fueled the insurgency.

“I have lost understanding of and confidence in the strategic purposes of the United States’ presence in Afghanistan,” he wrote Sept. 10 in a four-page letter to the department’s head of personnel. “I have doubts and reservations about our current strategy and planned future strategy, but my resignation is based not upon how we are pursuing this war, but why and to what end.”

“We have an obligation to every last victim of this illegal aggression because all of this carnage has been done in our name.

Since WW2, 90% of the casualties of war are unarmed civilians, a third of them children. Our victims have done nothing to us. From Palestine to Afghanistan, Iraq to Somalia, to wherever our (‘leaders’) next target may be, their murders are NOT ‘collateral damage,’ they are the nature of modern warfare. They don’t ‘hate us because of our freedoms,’ they hate us because every day we are funding and committing crimes against humanity.

…Today we know the truth. Our soldiers do not sacrifice for ‘duty, honor, and country’ they sacrifice for Kellogg Brown and Root. They don’t ‘fight for America,’ they fight for their lives and their buddies beside them because (our leaders) put them in a warzone. They’re not ‘defending our freedom,’ they’re laying the foundation for 14 permanent military bases to ‘defend the freedom’ of Exxon Mobile and British Petroleum. They’re not establishing ‘democracy,’ they’re establishing the basis for an economic occupation to continue after the military occupation has ended.

…We must dare to speak out in support of those American war-resistors, the real military heroes, who uphold their oath to defend the Constitution of the United States against ‘all enemies, foreign and domestic’ including those ‘terrorist cells’ in Washington DC more commonly known as the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial branches. ...'Power concedes nothing without a demand.'

When the globalists finally make their move…when they’re certain it is time to bring this country to its knees and under the control of their long-sought “New World Order,” they will hold up these crimes as justification for their actions.

Just as WW1 “justified” their first attempt (the League of Nations) and just as WW2 justified their second attempt (the United Nations), everything since the illegal overthrow of Iran in 1953, to the illegal wars going on today (and perhaps even a much wider conflict between the U.S. and other “more significant” powers), will be held up as “the final proof” that there MUST BE a sovereign “global body” to keep all nations in line. The less we resist our corrupt elite, the easier it will be for them to sell their lie.

Copenhagen Treaty: Will the U.S. cede sovereignty?
Source: Submitted: 10/23/2009
We've received numerous requests to stop President Obama from signing a climate change treaty in Copenhagen this December. Many of these requests were inspired by a presentation given by Christopher Monckton at the Minnesota Free Market Institute on October 14.

Monckton says he has read the treaty, believes Obama is sure to sign it, and that it would cede the sovereignty of the U.S. to a world government. (For a video of his remarks on the treaty, go here. To see his full 95-minute presentation that challenges the global warming theory, go here.)

We have yet to see any kind of crisis successfully mitigated through greater coercion, centralization, and bureaucracy. Whether or not one agrees that there is man-made climate change, Monckton's allegations are pretty scary. Anthony Watts provides more scary stuff by providing extensive passages from the treaty.

The first half of this documentary (1 hour) focuses on how the financial elite are using their power to bankrupt the U.S. and establish the "world government" they've been seeking for more than a century.

The second half focuses more on how they lie, manipulate, divide, distract and exploit the masses.

Keep in mind, the film focuses on Obama because Obama is currently in power. (The filmmaker was equally harsh on Bush when he was busy serving the super rich / well-connected "special interests" destroying our country.)

Oath Keepers pledges to prevent dictatorship in United States
Source: Submitted: 10/19/2009
--Launched in March by Las Vegan Stewart Rhodes, Oath Keepers bills itself as a nonpartisan group of current and retired law enforcement and military personnel who vow to fulfill their oaths to the Constitution.

More specifically, the group's members, which number in the thousands, pledge to disobey orders they deem unlawful, including directives to disarm the American people and to blockade American cities. By refusing the latter order, the Oath Keepers hope to prevent cities from becoming "giant concentration camps," a scenario the 44-year-old Rhodes says he can envision happening in the coming years.

--Rhodes, a former firearms instructor, said he easily could have started Oath Keepers during the Bush administration, but his focus during those years was first on getting his law degree and then volunteering on the 2008 presidential campaign of Texas Congressman Ron Paul, a libertarian Republican in whose office Rhodes worked during the 1990s.

What Rhodes terms "the rise of executive privilege" during the post-9/11 years of the Bush presidency will in his opinion only accelerate with Obama in office. What's worse, he said, is that "gun-hating extremists" now control the White House.

While Mohamed, a British resident, was in American custody, the CIA told British intelligence agents exactly what was done to him, and those British agents recorded what they were told in various memos. Last year, the British High Court ruled that Mohamed -- who was then at Guantanamo -- had the right to obtain those documents from the British intelligence service in order to prove that statements he made to the CIA were the by-product of coercion.

The dollar's share of new cash in the central banks was down to 37 percent -- compared with two-thirds a decade ago.

I've gotten lots of positive feedback about my silly song and video, "I Love My Country."About the only complaint, which I got second hand, was that someone didn't like me making fun of his flag and his freedom. Well, the song doesn't make fun of the flag, but it does make fun of his LACK of freedom. What I suspect the person actually felt was that I was mocking his version of patriotism. And in a way, I probably was.

--The trouble is, what most people call "patriotism" is nothing but mindless pack mentality. They "love" what they call their country based purely on the ACCIDENT of where they were born. So, it follows, if they were born in Germany in 1900, they would have ended up as "patriotic" Nazis. What would be good about that?

Other people, when they speak of "patriotism," mean loyalty to the idea of FREEDOM, because of the role that idea played in the creation of this country. Okay, THAT is something worth feeling attached to, even if the idea was mangled and corrupted along the way (from the very beginning, actually).

Elliot Madison faces charges of hindering apprehension or prosecution, criminal use of a communication facility and possession of instruments of crime. He was posting to a Twitter feed (or tweeting, as it is called) publicly available information about police activities around the G-20 protests, including information about where police had been ordered to disperse protesters.

--Madison, his wife and housemates were roused from sleep during the weekend when the Joint Terrorism Task Force swept into their house, keeping them handcuffed for hours, searching the house and removing computers and other property from everyone in the house. Madison said the FBI “for 16 hours, proceeded to take everything, from plush toys to kitchen magnets and lots of books ... they took Curious George stuffed animals.”

Rather than encourage and support the use of distributed, decentralized social networks to strengthen our democracy and dissent (remember, the Obama campaign itself relied extensively on these online and mobile tools), the government seems headed in the opposite direction.

Carmen Reynolds claims that the vaccinations she was forced to take during her 20-year military career destroyed her body-builder physique and also wrecked her internally, causing excruciating pain and permanently damaging her immune system.

The Florida law mandating forcible vaccinations in the event of a public health emergency makes no exceptions for religion objections or health conditions and allows for police force to be used to quarantine individuals who refuse to take the shot, or even forcibly inject them at gunpoint if necessary.

Source: Submitted: 10/06/2009
--Like all of his movies, Capitalism: A Love Story is very well made. Moore is exceptionally good at what he does, bringing wit, comedic timing, and emotional power to the screen. Also like all of his movies, he identifies real injustices and expresses appropriate outrage at them. However, throughout his distinguished career he has made the classic mistake of misidentifying the cause of the problems he depicts so poignantly on the screen.

He compares the United States to Rome and points to the similarities between our problems and theirs. He correctly identifies half of the cause of Rome's decline and ours: the government's unholy alliance with a landed aristocracy that plunders the wealth of the people for redistribution to the privileged few. However, he fails to recognize his solution as the other half of the cause of both Rome's decline and ours: the rest of society attempting to share in the plunder by means of majority vote (democracy). It was both of these forces acting together which destroyed Rome's currency and led to her eventual collapse. Like Rome, we are also afflicted with both of these ills.

The only real solution to our predicament is to implement a system that supports Bastiat's third alternative -- "where nobody plunders anybody." It is only by following this principle that justice can truly prevail. The most significant step in achieving such a system would be to eliminate the Federal Reserve System. Neither the Republican system of plunder for the wealthy nor the Democratic system of plunder for everybody is possible without monetary inflation. There is no way that government could ever achieve either through direct taxation.

The demise of the dollar
Source: The Independent Submitted: 10/05/2009
In the most profound financial change in recent Middle East history, Gulf Arabs are planning – along with China, Russia, Japan and France – to end dollar dealings for oil, moving instead to a basket of currencies including the Japanese yen and Chinese yuan, the euro, gold and a new, unified currency planned for nations in the Gulf Co-operation Council, including Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait and Qatar.

Secret meetings have already been held by finance ministers and central bank governors in Russia, China, Japan and Brazil to work on the scheme, which will mean that oil will no longer be priced in dollars.

Report Documents Israeli Crimes Against Civilians in Gaza: Where's the Outrage?
Source: AlterNet Submitted: 10/02/2009
--Like its predecessors, the so-called Goldstone report, named after chief investigator Richard Goldstone, is devastating in its critique of Israeli actions: indiscriminate use of firepower; deliberate attacks on civilians and civilian structures, including hospitals, schools, mosques, water and sewage plants, and rescue vehicles; use of white phosphorus munitions in built-up areas; use of human shields; abusive treatment of detainees; imposition of a blockade on Gaza before and after the attack itself--the report concludes that Israel violated international humanitarian law, committed "grave breaches of the Fourth Geneva Convention in respect of wilful killings and wilfully causing great suffering to protected persons," and war crimes, possibly even crimes against humanity. The courageous Israeli journalist Gideon Levy summed it up well in Haaretz: it was "an unrestrained assault on a besieged, totally unprotected civilian population which showed almost no signs of resistance during this operation."

--Predictably, the Goldstone report was met by a wave of angry denunciations from the Israeli government -- which had refused to cooperate with the investigators -- and most of the Israeli media. The mainstream media here have downplayed the investigation's significance; news coverage has been sparse, and not one major U.S. daily has seen fit to editorialize on it (unless you count a nasty little screed from the New York Daily News calling the report a "blood libel against Israel"). And U.S. pundits and politicians -- including UN ambassador Susan Rice, who called it "unbalanced, one-sided and basically unacceptable" -- have been overwhelmingly critical.

But it's not so easy to dismiss these findings. For one thing, the nearly 600-page report is carefully documented and comprehensive, and is based on field visits, public hearings, almost 200 individual interviews, photos, videos, satellite imagery and a review of more than 300 other reports. For another, its head, Goldstone, is one of the most respected and experienced international jurists, having served as a justice on South Africa's Constitutional Court and chief UN prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda.

Police Shoot Homeowner 6 times, Then Plan Cover Up
Source: Submitted: 10/02/2009
PHOENIX (CN) - A homeowner says a Phoenix police officer shot him six times in the back during a 911 home-invasion call, and the 911 tape recorded the officer's partner saying, "That's all right. Don't worry about it. I got your back. ... We clear?" The family says the officers were not aware that the 911 call was still recording as they spoke about covering up the shooting.  Read full article »

“In China, At Least I Would Have a Trial”
Source: Submitted: 09/30/2009
The U.S. government has just received the ultimate put-down from one of its Guantanamo prisoners. Arkin Mahmud, a Chinese Uighur who has been held at the prison camp for 8 years, stated ruefully, “In China, at least I would have a trial and sentence.”

What bigger insult than to be accused of providing less justice than that provided by one of the most vicious and brutal communist regimes in the world?

--We begin with the fundamental principle for which the United States has stood since the inception of our nation: People who are accused of crimes by the federal government are entitled to certain procedural protections, whose origins stretch back centuries into English jurisprudence. These include such principles as the rights to counsel, trial by jury, due process of law, habeas corpus, bail, speedy trial, and the rights to be free from arbitrary arrest, unreasonable searches and seizures, and cruel and unusual punishments.

Such crimes included the crime of terrorism, a crime that is expressly enumerated in the U.S. Criminal Code. That’s why, for example, Ramzi Yousef, who committed the 1993 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, was indicted, convicted, and sentenced in federal district court. The same goes for Zacharias Moussaoui, one of the 9/11 hijackers.

The 9/11 Commission Rejects own Report as Based on Government Lies
Source: Submitted: 09/27/2009
--(CINCINNATI, Ohio) - In John Farmer’s book: “The Ground Truth: The Story Behind America’s Defense on 9/11″, the author builds the inescapably convincing case that the official version... is almost entirely untrue...

The 9/11 Commission now tells us that the official version of 9/11 was based on false testimony and documents and is almost entirely untrue. The details of this massive cover-up are carefully outlined in a book by John Farmer, who was the Senior Counsel for the 9/11 Commission.

Farmer, Dean of Rutger Universities' School of Law and former Attorney General of New Jersey, was responsible for drafting the original flawed 9/11 report.
 Read full article »
It's good that Farmer has come out to state the obvious, but some of the reviews at Amazon (like the review quoted below) make me question the sincerity of his effort.

--"The big give away comes on page 4 of the Introduction, wherein Mr. Farmer states with seemingly straight face the following nonsense,

'Of all the misleading accounts told by a government to its people, our government's account to its people about what happened on 9/11 is certainly not the most egregious. It didn't escalate a war, as did the Johnson administration's fabrication of the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1965. It didn't provide a pretext for aggression, as did the government's manipulation of intelligence regarding the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Nor did it precipitate a constitutional crisis, as did the Nixon administration's lies about Watergate or President Clinton's lies about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky.'

The above four statements are Orwellian doublespeak and basically throw into doubt the true intentions as to why "The Ground Truth" was written. This book does nothing in terms of coming to grips with the hell on earth that the past administration unleashed using 9/11 as pretext..."

Mandatory insurance: Yes, it’s a tax
Source: Submitted: 09/25/2009
--“Under this mandate, the government is forcing people to spend money [to buy insurance], fining you if you don’t. How is that not a tax?’’

Obama replied that the individual mandate “is absolutely not a tax increase,’’ since, in his view, there is good reason to impose it. He stuck to that position even when confronted with Merriam-Webster’s definition of “tax’’ - “a charge, usually of money, imposed by authority on persons or property for public purposes.’’
