People of Hawaii Pass Resolution Against Forced Vaccination
Source: Flu Reports (blogspot) Submitted: 12/17/2009
--The vote demonstrated the power of local community activists to rebuke "top down" policies advancing "mandatory" vaccinations during declared emergencies. The Council's decision backed the majority of people unwilling to lose health freedoms to Federal governors directing State health officials on behalf of BigPharma special interests.

The Resolution (237-09) urges State and Federal legislators in Hawaii "to amend vaccine laws to include medical
, religious, and philosophical exemptions from any vaccine program," including those declared urgent by health officials.

Proponents declared this a victory for health freedom--a warning to health officials seeking mandatory vaccination authorizations under Federal "national emergency" codes that expand State health official powers under the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act.

It shouldn't surprise anyone that people in positions of power will try to hold onto that power, and will use whatever arguments they can think of--however irrational or immoral--to try to justify the power they have. What's really sad--downright pathetic, actually--is when the powerless people vehemently argue why they should be powerless, oppressed, robbed, and otherwise controlled. Unfortunately, it happens all the time.

If, for example, one points out that "taxation" is merely theft by a different name, not only do the thieves object, but the victims of the theft also insist that it's not really theft, or that it's necessary theft, or that they approve of the theft, or have given their permission for someone to rob them. (If you doubt this, check out the comments on my "I'm Allowed to Rob You!" video.) If not for constant authoritarian indoctrination, people wouldn't make such bizarre arguments. Can you imagine the following, for example?

UN Cheif: UN Will Establish a Global Government
Source: Submitted: 12/16/2009
--Speaking about the agenda to impose targets on CO2 emissions, as well as a global tax on financial transactions and a direct tax on GDP, Ban Ki-moon told the Los Angeles Times in an interview, “We will establish a global governance structure to monitor and manage the implementation of this.”

“We need to have a very strong, robust, binding political deal that will have an immediate operational effect. This is not going to be a political declaration, just for the sake of declaration. It is going to be a binding political deal, which will lead to a legally binding treaty next year,” he told the Times’ Bruce Wallace, adding that a formal treaty would be signed by mid-2010.

Mission Not Accomplished
Source: Lew Rockwell Submitted: 12/15/2009
--First, a closer look at the jobs numbers shows that employment improved in sectors that benefited most directly from monetary or fiscal stimulus: government, healthcare, financial services, education and retail sales. Meanwhile, sectors such as manufacturing continued to shed jobs at an alarming rate. These dynamics actually exacerbate our economic imbalances. Recent trade deficit figures (in which the deficit-reduction trend of early 2009 has sharply reversed) show how this employment growth is preventing needed rebalancing. Essentially, the Administration is nurturing firms that cannot survive without subsidies and support.

Once stimulus is removed, the “saved” jobs will be among the first to go. If the President has not figured this out yet, I am sure Fed Chairman Bernanke has. As a result, the market should discount as pure bluff any claims from the Fed about an eventual “exit strategy” from current stimuli. Such an “exit” would bring about Bernanke's greatest fear – spiking unemployment.

The Real Reason Behind The Copenhagen Walk-Out
Source: Submitted: 12/14/2009
--the media has completely failed to highlight the real reason behind the walk out – the fact that funds from climate financing, originally allocated to go to the UN and then be doled out piecemeal to third world nations, would instead be paid directly into the coffers of the World Bank and IMF, organizations that have made a habit out of looting poorer countries with crippling debts that cannot be paid back, forcing such countries to hand over their entire infrastructure to globalist loan sharks.

In the leaked Copenhagen text that emerged last week, leaders of third world countries were horrified to discover that developed nations would take on less of a burden than anticipated and that more would be demanded of poorer countries despite the fact that any further cuts in CO2 emissions would further cripple their flimsy economies and poverty-stricken people.

Billionaire elitist George Soros subsequently told Copenhagen delegates how poorer nations would be forced to take on what he described as “green loans” in the name of combating climate change, a policy that would land the already financially devastated third world with even more debt, payable to globalist institutions such as the IMF.

Poor Children Likelier to Get Antipsychotics
Source: New York Times Submitted: 12/14/2009
New federally financed drug research reveals a stark disparity: children covered by Medicaid are given powerful antipsychotic medicines at a rate four times higher than children whose parents have private insurance. And the Medicaid children are more likely to receive the drugs for less severe conditions than their middle-class counterparts, the data shows.

Those findings, by a team from Rutgers and Columbia, are almost certain to add fuel to a long-running debate. Do too many children from poor families receive powerful psychiatric drugs not because they actually need them — but because it is deemed the most efficient and cost-effective way to control problems that may be handled much differently for middle-class children?

Innocent Guantánamo Torture Victim Released in Kuwait
Source: Submitted: 12/11/2009
The long ordeal of Fouad al-Rabiah, an innocent man and a 50-year-old father of four, who had been in US custody for almost exactly eight years, finally came to an end today, when he was flown back to his homeland of Kuwait from Guantánamo, where he had spent the majority of those lost years, after several brutal months in US custody in Afghanistan.

Until the moment of his release, everything about his treatment at the hands of the US government was shameful.Twelve weeks ago, when District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly granted his habeas corpus petition, and ordered his release, she revealed the most extraordinary - and extraordinarily depressing - story. This shone the most unflinching light on Guantánamo as a place where men, who were rounded up for bounty payments by the US military's allies in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and were never adequately screened on capture, were then sent to Guantánamo. Once there, in the absence of any information to back up the administration's claims that they were "the worst of the worst," they became the victims of false allegations made by other prisoners (who were either coerced to do so, or were bribed with the promise of improved living conditions), and were then tortured and abused to make false confessions.

Torture is really good at producing ONE thing: confessions. Confessions eliminate the need for evidence. (Most human beings will confess to anything if tortured long enough - It makes no difference whether they’re a suspected heretic, witch, or enemy combatant.) Once a nation accepts this type of “justice system,” full-blown despotism is only a stone’s throw away.

Speak out against the torture regime? –Dare to challenge its policies? You might as well declare yourself a person who cares nothing for the safety of the nation. You might as well declare yourself a “terrorist sympathizer.” (Now, it is YOU who is the suspect.) Off to the gulag with you and your kind; where “evidence” of your evil plots (confessions) will be gathered via the enhanced interrogation techniques described in the article above.

Climate Colonialism: Poorer Nations To Take On Green Debt
Source: Submitted: 12/11/2009
Billionaire George Soros has suggested that poorer nations be persuaded to take on what he describes as “green loans” in the name of combating climate change, a policy that would land the already cripplingly poor third world with even more debt, payable to globalist institutions such as the IMF.

--The IMF and the World Bank are organizations that have made a habit out of looting poorer countries with crippling loans that cannot be paid back, forcing such countries to hand over their entire infrastructure to globalist loan sharks.

Two men who have exposed this monumental scam for what it is are former World Bank chief economists John Perkins and Joseph Stiglitz in their respective works "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man" and "Globalization and Its Discontents."

In what amounts to little more than modern day colonialism, debt forgiveness requires countries to sell their health, education, electric, water and other public services to globalist corporations. Such “structural adjustment conditionalities” have led to massive cuts to health and education budgets in the third world.

The Free Competition in Currency Act
Source: Lew Rockwell Submitted: 12/10/2009
Over millennia of human history, gold and silver have been the two metals that have most often satisfied these conditions, survived the market process, and gained the trust of billions of people. Gold and silver are difficult to counterfeit, a property which ensures they will always be accepted in commerce. It is precisely for this reason that gold and silver are anathema to governments. A supply of gold and silver that is limited in supply by nature cannot be inflated, and thus serves as a check on the growth of government. Without the ability to inflate the currency, governments find themselves constrained in their actions, unable to carry on wars of aggression or to appease their overtaxed citizens with bread and circuses.  Read full article »

Healthcare: Baucus confesses his deception, but wants to harm you anyway
Source: Submitted: 12/08/2009
"Please send another letter to Congress opposing the cancerous healthcare bill. There's new data you can use to make your case. Just borrow from (or copy and paste) the sample letter below . . .

'I'm pleased to learn that Senator Baucus finally confessed, during a debate in the Senate on Wednesday, December 2, that the true ten-year cost of the healthcare bill will be closer to $2.5 trillion than the nearly $1 trillion cost he has sold to the public.

Increasing numbers of other Americans are following what you do very closely. We are well aware that Congressional leaders have rigged the CBO score. We know that this has been done by delaying the start point for much of the spending so that it falls beyond the 10-year window evaluated by the CBO. In addition to the unsupportable true cost, there are also these problems . . .

The CBO -- Congressional Budget Office -- reported on Monday, November 30, that the healthcare bill is likely to increase insurance premiums for many people, not lower them. This is not what we were promised.

And Richard S. Foster, the chief actuary of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, estimates that the bill's health insurance mandates will cause . . .

* Individuals to pay $62 billion in fines between 2014 and 2019,
* Businesses to pay $118 billion in tax penalties

ENOUGH! Scrap this cancerous bill. Do it now!

5 Reasons That Corporate Media Coverage is Pro War
Source: GeorgeWashington2 Submitted: 12/06/2009
--The media has a strong monetary interest to avoid controversial topics in general. It has always been true that advertisers discourage stories which challenge corporate power. Indeed, a 2003 survey reveals that 35% of reporters and news executives themselves admitted that journalists avoid newsworthy stories if “the story would be embarrassing or damaging to the financial interests of a news organization’s owners or parent company.”

In addition, the government has allowed tremendous consolidation in ownership of the airwaves during the past decade. Dan Rather has slammed media consolidation:

Likening media consolidation to that of the banking industry, Rather claimed that “roughly 80 percent” of the media is controlled by no more than six, and possibly as few as four, corporations.

Important New Vitamin D Research Papers
Source: Submitted: 12/01/2009
--Dr. Garland’s findings only lend further credence to the mountain of growing evidence that optimal levels of vitamin D are essential for your health. Here are just a few highlights into some of the most noteworthy findings:

* Some 600,000 cases of breast and colorectal cancers could be prevented each year if vitamin D levels among populations worldwide were increased, according to previous research by Dr. Garland and colleagues. And that’s just counting the death toll for two types of cancer.

* Optimizing your vitamin D levels could help you to prevent at least 16 different types of cancer including pancreatic, lung, ovarian, prostate, and skin cancers.

* A large-scale, randomized, placebo-controlled study on vitamin D and cancer showed that vitamin D can cut overall cancer risk by as much as 60 percent! This was such groundbreaking news that the Canadian Cancer Society has actually begun endorsing the vitamin as a cancer-prevention therapy.

* Light-skinned women who had high amounts of long-term sun exposure had half the risk of developing advanced breast cancer (cancer that spreads beyond your breast) as women with lower amounts of regular sun exposure, according to a study in the American Journal of Epidemiology.

* A study by Dr. William Grant, Ph.D., internationally recognized research scientist and vitamin D expert, found that about 30 percent of cancer deaths -- which amounts to 2 million worldwide and 200,000 in the United States -- could be prevented each year with higher levels of vitamin D.

Congressman Smith stressed that opposing forced abortion is not a partisan issue.

ADL attacks Alex Jones and Patriot Community

The Anti-Defamation League has launched a vicious new assault on Alex Jones and members of the patriot community in the form of a new report that equates skepticism and distrust of government with “a toxic atmosphere of rage,” which is threatening to boil over in the form of violence.

The tone of the ADL’s hit piece basically implies that Alex Jones and his ilk are such a threat to the establishment that they should be removed from society, which ironically is exactly how Hitler dealt with his political enemies.

The true significance of this gargantuan hit piece on Alex Jones and the patriot movement is the fact that the establishment has firmly moved away from ignorance and ridicule and is now directly targeting us for elimination – an effective purge of the undesirables – by implying we want to commit violence and should therfore be neutralized.

The fact that we have constantly urged unity and discouraged division, while promoting a peaceful message of non-violence, has infuriated the increasingly incensed establishment because as their credibility has collapsed, ours has grown in leaps and bounds – and as a result their agenda is beginning to stall.

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?

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.

In 1918, a year of tuition at Yale cost $160, about 32 days of work for a factory worker at Ford. Today, that same worker has to work a year and a half. What changed? The government got involved to make college more affordable.  Watch here »

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
Source: Submitted: 10/27/2009
--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.”
