Turley: Obama 'accessory' to war crimes if no prosecution (Video)

Turley pointed out that the Obama administration response was written "in the future tense. You weren't asking whether he would do these things. Nobody thinks that Obama is George Bush. I think we believe that he's better than these past programs. But people are not asking about the future. We are asking about the past."

"It takes a lot to avoid a very simple truism," Turley argued. "That, if true, these would be crimes and we prosecute crimes. We call people criminals who commit them. It is very easy to say. All you need is the principals and the courage to say it."

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown will today call for the economic crisis to be used to create a “new global order,” and a new form of internationalism, a mantra that is becoming all too familiar as globalists exploit the very problem they created to centralize power into fewer hands.

“In a speech, he will urge countries to avoid “muddling through as pessimists” and “make the necessary adjustment to a better future and setting the new rules for this new global order”, according to his office,” reports AFP.

Taken from the book "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 all together. 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."

Former National Security Agency analyst Russell Tice, who helped expose the NSA's warrantless wiretapping in December 2005, has now come forward with even more startling allegations.

Rules for International Monetary Reform
Source: Submitted: 01/22/2009
In chapter 9 of my book, Money, Bank Credit, and Economic Cycles (pp. 789–803), I design a process of transition toward the only world financial order that, being fully compatible with the free-enterprise system, can eliminate the financial crises and economic recessions that cyclically affect the world's economies. Such a proposal for international financial reform is, of course, extremely relevant at this time, since the disconcerted governments of Europe and America are planning a world conference to reform the international monetary system in order to avoid future financial and banking crises such as the one that currently grips the entire Western world. As I explain in detail over the nine chapters of my book, any future reform will fail as miserably as past reforms unless it strikes at the very root of the present problems and rests on the following principles:  Read full article »

The "Missing Dollar" riddle

There are variations of the "missing dollar" riddle. The one I heard about 15 years ago (from a Clevelander named Randy) went like this:

3 guys get a hotel room, pay $10 each, total cost = $30.

The manager decides to refund $5, gives the $5 to the bellboy to return to the guests.

The bellboy decides to keep $2 for each guest back $1.00


Each man paid $10, then was each refunded $1, meaning they paid $9 per person.
$9 times 3 guys = $27 + the $2 the bellboy kept equals $29. ...where did the missing dollar go???

It's a misdirection...the ONLY reason the guys paid $27 is because the bellboy kept $2 for himself. (You don't "add" $2 to the $27 to balance the equation.)

The real breakdown goes like this:

Living Through New Deal II
Source: Lew Rockwell Submitted: 01/09/2009
--What's striking here is how the historians are the ones with power right now. Bush has gone nuts with inflation and intervention as a way of avoiding Hoover's fate, even though the actual historical record (as versus the historian's fantasies) shows that Herbert was the first New Dealer. Meanwhile, the Obama clique hopes to recreate the FDR disaster by following his plan detail by detail, even though the plan was stupid and didn't work.

To watch all this happening is like watching a slow-moving train headed over a cliff. The problem is that the engineers have earplugs in and blinders on.

Will this go on for ten years like the last time? Will it end in World War III, as if following some historical script? Is it possible that we will go the way of Germany in the 1920s, straight into the abyss of hyperinflation and into the hands of a ghastly dictator? It is unwise to rule it out.

Time to End the Second Prohibition
Source: Submitted: 01/08/2009
America’s First Prohibition, on alcohol, ended in 1933, not because it failed—although it most certainly had. Not because the murder rate in America’s cities doubled during 13 years of the “noble experiment.” Not because the enforcement of a law that attempted to prevent people from doing what they went on doing anyway had corrupted the police, courts, legislatures and businesses of the nation. Not because Prohibition handed a share of the economy to a criminal underworld that grew richer than U.S. Steel without paying a penny in tax. Nor because the federal prison population swelled by more than five hundred per cent to accommodate all those who were caught (a small percentage of the offending total) producing, importing, selling and drinking the devil’s liquid.

No, it ended because the Great Crash of 1929, the banking crisis that followed, the loss of tax revenues from business that had gone bust and millions of workers without jobs made it too expensive. The Great Depression killed Prohibition, because the United States just couldn’t afford it.

Think of the debts that would be wiped out, the savings and investments it would lead to, and how much it would boost spending, thus causing an economic boom!

If there was a national referendum for such a plan, what do you suppose the vote would be? I'm guessing it would be about 80% in favor and 20% against. And of the minority that would instinctively know that such a "solution" couldn't possibly work, how many could actually explain WHY it wouldn't work? Would it even be as many as one in a hundred?

Even as America's students have dropped to their lowest level on standardized tests compared to students internationally, and even as drop-out rates soar past the 50 percent mark in most of the largest urban school districts, President-elect Barack Obama has shown contempt for school choice-even as he exercised school choice in enrolling his own children in the most expensive and exclusive private prep school in Washington, D.C.

I recently attended the 3rd North American Secessionist Convention held in Manchester , New Hampshire .

While the topic of secession is not uncommon to readers of this daily journal, the idea of secession is unique and unappealing to most Americans. The term often brings forth images of the Civil War, slavery, the assassination of a President and a defeated Confederacy. Americans seem blissfully unaware that the Declaration of Independence was an act of secession from Great Britain and that the history of nation-states throughout the world is replete with sections breaking away from larger political bodies to go their own separate way, the latest being the attempt of South Ossetia to leave the nation of Georgia.

Slaughter in Gaza: Another Chapter in the Global Elite Master Plan
Source: Submitted: 12/30/2008
Israel is using U.S. munitions against the Palestinians. From the Jerusalem Post:

"The Israel Air Force used a new bunker-buster missile that it received recently from the United States in strikes against Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, The Jerusalem Post learned on Sunday.

The missile, called GBU-39, was developed in recent years by the US as a small-diameter bomb for low-cost, high-precision and low collateral damage strikes."

The claim that Israel is employing the bomb because it minimizes “collateral damage” is sadistically absurd, to say the least — the Gaza Strip is incontestably the most populated tract of land on earth and any munition, even a “smart” one, will undoubtedly cause “collateral damage.” The 1.3 million Palestinians living on the Gaza Strip are little more than fish in a barrel due to the fact Israel controls Gaza’s airspace, coast and most of its borders.

From the article:

“--Hamas claimed 76 of the 132 parliamentary seats in 2006, as the Washington Post reported at the time. Fatah won only 43 seats, mostly because many Palestinians realized the organization was heavily comprised, corrupt, and in league with Israeli intelligence and the CIA. Fatah’s relationship with the CIA became apparent last year when Fatah security compounds in Gaza were raided by Hamas — “they found huge supplies of American-made weaponry including 7,400 M-16 assault rifles, dozens of mounted machine guns, rocket launchers, seven armored military jeeps, 800,000 rounds of bullets and 18 US-made armored personnel carriers…”

OK, so would anyone be surprised to find out the “opposition” that won (Hamas) is also funded and controlled by Israel’s intelligence services? Simply stated, the Zionist’s who control the Israeli government NEED Hamas to “justify” their aggression against the Palestinian people. They need Hamas to “refuse negotiations” and discredit the idea of “an independent Palestine.” They NEED "Hamas" to fire some rockets whenever it looks like a peace agreement might be reached.

Who benefits most from Hamas? (The Zionists or the Palestinians?) It’s like asking who benefited most from 9/11; the “terrorists” (and whatever cause they supposedly support) or the Neoconservatives who used the attacks as a pretext for their otherwise impossible foreign policy agenda.

…Think “Lavon Affair” only far better organized and far more effective.

From Wikipedia:
"The Lavon Affair refers to the scandal over a failed Israeli covert operation in Egypt known as Operation Susannah, in which Israeli military intelligence planted bombs in Egyptian, American and British-owned targets in Egypt in the summer of 1954 in the hopes that "the Muslim Brotherhood, the Communists, 'unspecified malcontents' or 'local nationalists'" would be blamed.[1] It became known as the Lavon Affair after the Israeli defense minister Pinhas Lavon, who was forced to resign because of the incident, or euphemistically (known) as the Unfortunate Affair. Israel admitted responsibility in 2005 when Israeli President Moshe Katzav honored the nine Egyptian Jewish agents who were involved.[2]"

--I seldom have the urge to give a comforting pat on the back to people profiled in the Wall Street Journal. But that was my reaction when I read the 21-page whistleblower document about Madoff that was written by Harry Markopolos to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on November 7, 2005. The Journal still has the document on its web site and Markopolos provides a step by step plan for the SEC to follow to nail Madoff as a Ponzi fraudster. The letter followed a five-year effort by Markopolos, who supplied documentation and made repeated requests to the SEC to investigate Madoff.

Here’s how the SEC characterized the letter from Markopolos in a January 4, 2006 memo: “ The staff received a complaint alleging that Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC, a registered broker-dealer in New York (“BLM”), operates an undisclosed multi-billion dollar investment advisory business, and that BLM operates this business as a Ponzi scheme. The complaint did not contain specific facts about the alleged Ponzi scheme…”

Excerpted from "The Creature from Jekyll Island"

--In the map room of the British Admiralty, Churchill watched the play unfold and coldly called the shots. Small disks marked the places where two ships had been torpedoed the day before. A circle indicated the area within which the U-boat must still be operating. A larger disk represented the Lusitania traveling at nineteen knots directly into the circle.

--One of the officers present in the high-command map room on that fateful day was Commander Joseph Kenworthy, who previously had been called upon by Churchill to submit a paper on what would be the political results of an ocean liner being sunk with American passengers aboard. He left the room in disgust at the cynicism of his superiors. In 1927, in his book, The Freedom of the Seas, he wrote without further comment: “The Lusitania was sent at considerably reduced speed into an area where a U-boat was known to be waiting and with her escorts withdrawn.”

(The man charged with writing an “acceptable” report about the incident, Lord Mersey) --wrote to Prime Minister Asquith and turned down his fee for services. He added: “I must request that henceforth I be excused from administering His Majesty’s Justice.” In later years, his only comment on the event was: “The Lusitania case was a damn dirty business.”

The idea behind government is simple: Citizens grant special power to certain individuals so that those individuals can serve and protect society. Citizens DO NOT grant special power to certain individuals so those individuals can serve (and protect) themselves at the expense of society. –And yet we see this happen over and over again. (Criminals infiltrate government, pervert its purpose and use its power against the people.)  Read full article »
In Madoff We Trust (Highly Recommended)
Source: Peter Schiff Submitted: 12/18/2008
--Unfortunately, the Ponzi economy doesn’t stop there. A chain letter is no more viable when run by governments than when run by private citizens. However, government orchestrated pyramids have the advantage of required participation. As a result, they can maintain the illusion of viability for several generations. But the longer such schemes operate the larger will be the losses when they ultimately collapse.

The Social Security Administration runs its “trust funds” with precisely the same methods used by Madoff and Ponzi. As money is collected by from current workers, the funds are then dispersed to those already receiving benefits. None of the funds collected are actually invested, so no investment returns are ever generated. Those currently paying into the system are expected to receive their returns based on the “contribution” made by future workers. This is the classic definition of a Ponzi scheme. The only difference is that Ponzi didn’t own a printing press.

Dollar No Longer Haven After Fed Moves Rate Near Zero
Source: Bloomberg Submitted: 12/18/2008
Dec. 17 (Bloomberg) -- The world’s biggest currency-trading firms say the dollar’s appeal as a haven amid the financial crisis all but evaporated.

The U.S. currency slid to a 13-year low against the yen today and had its biggest one-day decline versus the euro after the Federal Reserve reduced its target interest rate yesterday to a range of zero to 0.25 percent, the lowest among the world’s biggest economies. CMC Markets said today the currency’s prospects appear “ominous.” State Street Global markets said the dollar’s outlook has been “undermined.”

Court strikes down Patriot Act gag provision
Source: Raw Story Submitted: 12/16/2008
A federal appeals court ruling late Monday is the cause célèbre of the American Civil Liberties Union, as another provision of the Bush administration's Patriot Act falls to the judicial system.

Until the ruling, recipients of so-called "national security letters" were legally forbidden from speaking out. The letters, usually a demand for documents, or a notice that private records had been searched by government authorities, were criticized as a cover-all for FBI abuses.

Nobel Economist Says More Stable Currency Needed
Source: Submitted: 12/15/2008
More than 200 members of the Fordham community converged upon the Flom Auditorium on Oct. 14 to hear John Forbes Nash Jr., Ph.D., winner of the 1994 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, talk about solutions to the downturn in the national and global economy.

Nash told the audience that such financial crises would be less likely to occur if there was some international monetary standard, such as the gold standard or competition among worldwide currencies, to curb inflation and prevent the rise of mortgage abuses. He expressed some skepticism about a government bailout as a solution.

I've said it privately; I might as well say it publicly:

Now that the international bankers have created this global crisis, the easiest way for them to get everyone to sign on to their "solution" (a global central bank and new global monetary unit) will be to introduce it as a "gold-backed" system.

This, of course, will only be temporary. Once their new gold-backed currency becomes the world's reserve currency, the gold backing will be removed and they’ll finally have what they’ve always wanted. (A single fiat global currency that they create and control.)

-More centralization of power is NOT the answer.
Man Throws Two Shoes at Bush in Iraq (Video)
Source: AP Submitted: 12/14/2008
Bush got a size-10 reminder of the intense opposition to his policies when a man threw two shoes at him — one after another — during a news conference with Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. "This is the end!" shouted the man, later identified as Muntadar al-Zeidi, a correspondent for Al-Baghdadia television, an Iraqi-owned station based in Cairo, Egypt.  Watch here »
Man, I'm impressed with Bush's reflexes. That was a Hell of dodge!! (Wish I had more good things to say about the guy...but that's about all I can think of.)
Whose Debt?
Source: Larken Rose Submitted: 12/13/2008
--In literal terms, without the authoritarian propaganda spin, here is how things work: A bunch of liars and crooks, declaring themselves to be our rightful rulers, steal tons and tons of money from the rest of us. They then spend far MORE than they steal, and declare that the difference, the debt, is OUR responsibility. And almost everyone accepts that as true. -It's not.

--There's a very easy way to fix the "federal budget deficit" and "national debt" problems: ignore them out of existence. To any who have invested in oppression and government extortion, the joke's on you. You're not quite as bad as the thieves you financed, but you're pretty darn bad. And when the day comes, which is fast approaching, when all your "investments" disappear, don't come crying to me. You deserve it, for the exact same reason that people who invested in the slave trade industry two hundred years ago deserved to lose everything. Next time, try investing in trade, instead of theft.

Fed Refuses to Disclose Recipients of $2 Trillion in Lending
Source: Bloomberg Submitted: 12/12/2008
Dec. 12 (Bloomberg) -- The Federal Reserve refused a request by Bloomberg News to disclose the recipients of more than $2 trillion of emergency loans from U.S. taxpayers and the assets the central bank is accepting as collateral.

Bloomberg filed suit Nov. 7 under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act requesting details about the terms of 11 Fed lending programs, most created during the deepest financial crisis since the Great Depression.

The Fed responded Dec. 8, saying it’s allowed to withhold internal memos as well as information about trade secrets and commercial information. The institution confirmed that a records search found 231 pages of documents pertaining to some of the requests.

Crowd Control Munitions (Recommended)
Source: Submitted: 12/11/2008
--in a December 1 story, the Washington Post reports that the Pentagon plans to have not just that 4,000, but 20,000 uniformed troops inside the U. S. by 2011. Dedicating 20,000 troops to domestic response "would have been extraordinary to the point of unbelievable," Paul McHale, assistant defense secretary for homeland defense, said, but the realization that civilian authorities may be overwhelmed in a catastrophe prompted "a fundamental change in military culture."

--the Army Times report of September notes that the First Brigade Combat Team’s commander, Col. Roger Cloutier, said his soldiers will learn how to use the first ever package of so-called "nonlethal" weapons the Army has fielded, referring to crowd and traffic control equipment and weapons designed to subdue individuals without killing them.

"It’s a new modular package of nonlethal capabilities…they’ve been using pieces of it in Iraq, but this is the first time that these modules were consolidated and this package fielded, and because of this mission we’re undertaking we were the first to get it," Cloutier added."

...quite a list of new "toys." This one is especially interesting (from the article)

"Raytheon Corp.'s Active Denial System, designed for crowd control in combat zones, uses an energy beam to induce an intolerable heating sensation, like a hot iron placed on the skin. It is effective beyond the range of small arms, in excess of 400 meters. Company officials have been advised they could expand the market by selling a smaller, tripod-mounted version for police forces."
650 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims
Source: Submitted: 12/10/2008
The UN global warming conference currently underway in Poland is about to face a serious challenge from over 650 dissenting scientists from around the globe who are criticizing the climate claims made by the UN IPCC and former Vice President Al Gore. Set for release this week, a newly updated U.S. Senate Minority Report features the dissenting voices of over 650 international scientists, many current and former UN IPCC scientists, who have now turned against the UN. The report has added about 250 scientists (and growing) in 2008 to the over 400 scientists who spoke out in 2007. The over 650 dissenting scientists are more than 12 times the number of UN scientists (52) who authored the media hyped IPCC 2007 Summary for Policymakers.  Read full article »
