Obama Kill Switch

New Bill Gives Obama ‘Kill Switch’ To Shut Down The Internet

Government would have “absolute power” to seize control of the world wide web under Lieberman legislation

The federal government would have “absolute power” to shut down the Internet under the terms of a new US Senate bill being pushed by Joe Lieberman, legislation which would hand President Obama a figurative “kill switch” to seize control of the world wide web in response to a Homeland Security directive.

Lieberman has been pushing for government regulation of the Internet for years under the guise of cybersecurity, but this new bill goes even further in handing emergency powers over to the feds which could be used to silence free speech under the pretext of a national emergency.

“The legislation says that companies such as broadband providers, search engines or software firms that the US Government selects “shall immediately comply with any emergency measure or action developed” by the Department of Homeland Security. Anyone failing to comply would be fined,” reports ZDNet’s Declan McCullagh.

The 197-page bill (PDF) is entitled Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act, or PCNAA.

Technology lobbying group TechAmerica warned that the legislation created “the potential for absolute power,” while the Center for Democracy and Technology worried that the bill’s emergency powers “include authority to shut down or limit internet traffic on private systems.”

The bill has the vehement support of Senator Jay Rockefeller, who last year asked during a congressional hearing, “Would it had been better if we’d have never invented the Internet?” while fearmongering about cyber-terrorists preparing attacks.

The largest Internet-based corporations are seemingly happy with the bill, primarily because it contains language that will give them immunity from civil lawsuits and also reimburse them for any costs incurred if the Internet is shut down for a period of time.

“If there’s an “incident related to a cyber vulnerability” after the President has declared an emergency and the affected company has followed federal standards, plaintiffs’ lawyers cannot collect damages for economic harm. And if the harm is caused by an emergency order from the Feds, not only does the possibility of damages virtually disappear, but the US Treasury will even pick up the private company’s tab,” writes McCullagh.

New Bill Gives Obama Kill Switch To Shut Down The Internet 150410banner1

Tom Gann, McAfee’s vice president for government relations, described the bill as a “very important piece of legislation”.

As we have repeatedly warned for years, the federal government is desperate to seize control of the Internet because the establishment is petrified at the fact that alternative and independent media outlets are now eclipsing corporate media outlets in terms of audience share, trust, and influence.

We witnessed another example of this on Monday when establishment Congressman Bob Etheridge was publicly shamed after he was shown on video assaulting two college students who asked him a question. Two kids with a flip cam and a You Tube account could very well have changed the course of a state election, another startling reminder of the power of the Internet and independent media, and why the establishment is desperate to take that power away.

The government has been searching for any avenue possible through which to regulate free speech on the Internet and strangle alternative media outlets, with the FTC recently proposing a “Drudge Tax” that would force independent media organizations to pay fees that would be used to fund mainstream newspapers.

Similar legislation aimed at imposing Chinese-style censorship of the Internet and giving the state the power to shut down networks has already been passed globally, including in the UK, New Zealand and Australia.

We have extensively covered efforts to scrap the internet as we know it and move toward a greatly restricted “internet 2″ system. Handing government the power to control the Internet would only be the first step towards this system, whereby individual ID’s and government permission would be required simply to operate a website.

The Lieberman bill needs to be met with fierce opposition at every level and from across the political spectrum. Regulation of the Internet would not only represent a massive assault on free speech, it would also create new roadblocks for e-commerce and as a consequence further devastate the economy.

ObamaCare Ruled Unconstitutional - Again

Florida judge rules health care law unconstitutional
msnbc.msn.com




A federal judge has ruled that the health care reform bill signed into law by President Barack Obama in March is unconstitutional.

Judge Roger Vinson, a Reagan appointee serving in Pensacola, Florida, ruled that key components of the law are unconstitutional and that the entire law "must be declared void."

Today’s decision is the second ruling by a federal judge against the constitutionality of the health care legislation. Two other federal courts have upheld the constitutionality of the law, including its requirement that most Americans buy health insurance or pay a penalty.

While the lawsuit addressed in Vinson’s ruling is the largest of its kind – with 26 states having signed on – today’s decision is likely just one more step in the law’s march to the United States Supreme Court.

But this is the biggest court victory yet for opponents of the law's requirement that all Americans by health insurance.

Brain scan can tell if a smoker will quit

By Agence France-Presse
Monday, January 31st, 2011 -- 7:12 am




WASHINGTON — US researchers have found a way to predict how successful a smoker will be at quitting by using an MRI scan to look for activity in a region of the brain associated with behavior change.
The scans were performed on 28 heavy smokers who had joined an anti-smoking program, according to the study published Monday in the peer-reviewed journal Health Psychology.
Participants were asked to watch a series of commercials about quitting smoking while a magnetic resonance imaging machine scanned their brains for activity.
After each ad, subjects in the study "rated how it affected their intention to quit, whether it increased their confidence about quitting, and how much they related to the message," researchers explained.
Those who showed activity in the medial prefrontal cortex during the ads were "significantly linked to reductions in smoking behavior" in the month that followed, regardless of how the people said they were affected by the ad.

"It seems that our brain activity may provide information that introspection does not," added Falk, director of the Communication Neuroscience Laboratory at the University of Michigan.
She said researchers would next try to determine which kind of messages were most effective by matching brain activity to the ads.
The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation, and took place at University of California, Los Angeles.

Report of armed man leads to lockdown at Wal-Mart



Report of armed man leads to lockdown at Wal-Mart

Daily Express
Posted Jan 26, 2011 @ 04:05 PM
Last update Jan 28, 2011 @ 04:02 PM



A report of an armed man acting erratically in the Wal-Mart parking lot Wednesday led to the store being temporarily locked down before Kirksville Police responded to and defused the situation with no injuries.

According to Kirksville Police Chief Jim Hughes, a passerby stopped a Kirksville Police officer and said they had seen an individual acting erratically in a truck in the Wal-Mart parking lot shortly before 2:30 p.m. The passerby believed the individual had a gun to his head.

"We don't take these things lightly," Hughes said, "especially nowadays."

KPD responded to control the scene and ordered a lockdown of the store both to keep shoppers in and prevent the individual from entering the store.

After identifying the vehicle and person in question, Hughes said a decision was made on the scene for police to attempt contact. They were able to communicate with him and he voluntarily exited the vehicle. No weapon was found and the individual was taken into custody without incident less than 20 minutes after police arrived on scene.

The individual was talking on a cell phone at the time of the incident. It's likely that is the object the passerby identified as a gun.

Hughes said no crime was committed and no additional information, including the person's name, would be released.

Wal-Mart security offered full cooperation, Hughes said. The Adair County Sheriff's Office also responded and offered assistance, but Hughes said the incident was resolved prior to their active involvement.

The Independent Thinker’s 9/11 FACT SHEET

The Independent Thinker’s
9/11 FACT SHEET

What occurred on September 11th, 2001 is a matter of
facts, physics and unprecedented violations of national
protocol by American officials themselves.
Here are 10 points to consider.
There are hundreds more.


1. No steel-framed building before or since 9/11 has ever collapsed due to fire.

2. No official agency (FAA, FBI, or the airlines) has ever released a list of the 9/11
passengers. But within hours, the FBI released a list of the hijackers.

3. On September 11th, 2001 the FAA successfully grounded all aircraft-–an
unprecedented operation. Yet it could not successfully scramble any jet fighters that
day-–a normal procedure occurring over 100 times a year.

4. Building 7, a 47-story skyscraper and part of the World Trade Center complex, was
not struck by a plane but collapsed in 6.5 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on September 11th, in
the exact manner of a controlled demolition.

5. There was no visible airplane debris where Flight 93 supposedly crashed in
Pennsylvania-–only a smoking hole in the ground, much like a bomb crater.

6. Office fires burn at low temperatures of 600-800 dF. Steel melts at 2750 dF. Jet
fuel is an ordinary hydrocarbon; its maximal burning temperature is 1200 dF in open
air. Neither jet fuel nor the burning contents of the buildings could have caused the
towers’ steel structure to buckle or fail.

7. Tests have shown that cell-phone calls cannot be made at altitudes over 4000 to
8000 feet, as cell towers are located on the ground. Commercial airplanes fly at
30,000 feet and above. No passenger could have successfully placed a call for help
by cell phone from an airborne plane on 9/11, as reported.

8. 9/11 was immediately declared an “act of war” by President Bush. The rubble from
Ground Zero was carted away and the steel sold off without examination.

9. Enormous profits were made by insiders on plummeting stock prices of the two
airlines involved in 9/11-–American and United. Federal law protects their identities.

10. Accepting victims’ compensation barred 9/11 families from further discovery
through litigation.

Lightning and fire: Japan on alert after volcano's biggest eruption in 50 years

A one-mile cordon has been established around a volcano on Mount Kirishima after it erupted scattering rocks and ash across southern Japan and sending smoke billowing 5,000ft into the air.

The Meteorological Agency raised the volcanic alert to level 3 as ash today continued to spew from Shinmoedake on Japan's southernmost main island of Kyushu, and residents have been banned from going within a mile of the volcano following its worst eruption in 50 years.

Americans to the world "It's not us"

If Americans could tell the rest of the world one thing, it might be:

"If we had control of the military, we would be out of Afghanistan."
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

presstv
A recent poll shows the American people’s support for the Afghan war has dropped to the lowest level since President Barack Obama took office.

The survey conducted by Quinnipiac University showed that a majority of voters believed the US should not be involved in Afghanistan.

The support level in the survey has dropped to 41 percent, which is well below the peak of 59 percent a year ago.

TSA Officer Charged with Theft was Listed as Local Union's Vice President

knoxnews.com


The Transportation Safety Administration agent accused of stealing a passenger's laptop computer at Memphis International Airport says he didn't do it.

"Man, it is crazy how they twist this thing," said the TSA employee, Ricky R. German, 48, of Memphis, on Friday.

"I had it -- I was looking for them," German said.

On Wednesday, airport police charged German with theft in connection with a Dec. 20 incident at the airport.

A passenger accidentally left an Apple Macbook valued at $1,200 in the "C" baggage claim lobby at the airport and reported it missing about 8:15 p.m. that night, according to a court affidavit filed by airport police.

Surveillance video at the airport shows German with the laptop about 7:30 p.m. It shows him throwing away paperwork with the owner's name on it from case, according to the affidavit.

German is shown taking the computer upstairs shortly before 8 p.m., placing it under a vacant ticket counter and carrying it back downstairs about 30 minutes later wrapped in his coat.

After German returned, the computer's owner told police he asked German twice if anyone turned in the laptop and German denied knowing about it, according to the court document.

German, a vice president in the National Treasury Employees Union Chapter 321 representing some TSA workers at the Memphis airport, said that after the misplaced laptop was brought to his attention by an airport worker, he kept it with him and told a witness to tell anyone looking for the laptop where he would be.

When he returned it, "they shook my hand and thanked me," German said.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What should the TSA motto be?

"And you thought we just molested"

"We grab your junk and keep your valuables"

Any motto suggestions?

Looking For America



Looking For America (Lyrics)
Jeremy Bussey, Bernie Nelson, Philip Douglas

I'm chasing down a memory
Of the way that things used to be
Kids playing underneath an old street light
Knowing they were safe when they laid down at night
I'm looking for something I ain't seen in a while

I'm looking for a factory
Where a man can feed his family
Not worried about them moving it south
Closing the doors and shutting 'er down tomorrow
I'm looking for America

Chorus:
The land of the free and the home of the brave
Seems like I just woke up one day and it was gone, long gone
But I know in my heart it's still out there
Can somebody please tell me where
I'm looking for, America

I'm searching for an old church steeple
Where inside you'll find people
Who live their lives unashamed
And they ain't afraid to say God's name out loud
Yeah I'm looking for America

Repeat Chorus:

I'm out here looking for the truth
A few folks to wave the red, white and blue
Who still believe freedom isn't free
And I guess it's up to you and me to find it
Yeah we gotta find it
Cause we're looking for

Obama to Deliver Gun-grabbing Speech Soon

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
January 27, 2011

Prior to his SOTU, it was reported Obama would mention gun control. He didn’t, although he did preface his speech with a tribute to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, the wounded Arizona representative who has become a poster child for professional gun-grabbers.

Earlier this week, legendary gun-grabber New York mayor Michael Bloomberg called for a strict national background check system and additional restrictions on gun shows.



“President Obama tonight failed to challenge old assumptions on the need for, and political possibilities of, reducing the gun violence – which he suggested should be done two weeks ago in Tucson,” complained Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the nation’s largest anti-Second Amendment group.

Now administration officials say Obama will address the issue soon. In the next two weeks, Newsweek reports, the White House will unveil a brand spanking new gun control effort designed to strengthen previous anti-Second Amendment laws on the books.

The Obama White House will use the mentally deranged accused Giffords shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, to push for background checks, although in order to avoid the impression that Obama is exploiting the Arizona shooting for political gain the White House will dedicate a separate speech to the issue.

Obama’s handlers expect increased activity on the issue of background checks soon. “It’s a very important issue, and one I know there’s going to be debate about on the Hill,” Obama adviser David Plouffe told NBC News.

The NRA has remained suspiciously silent on Obama’s plan to move on the Second Amendment in the coming weeks.

In the past, the NRA has teamed up with Democrats to pass gun control legislation. For instance, in the wake of the Virginia Tech shootings, the NRA worked with notorious gun-grabber Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, D-N.Y. to pass a background check bill.


Last year, McCarthy introduced The No Fly, No Buy Act (H.R. 2401), a bill that will merge the TSA’s no-fly list with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), a point-of-sale system for determining eligibility to purchase a firearm in the United States, Guam, and Puerto Rico. It was created in November of 1993 when the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993 (Brady Act), Public Law 103-159, was signed into law. Permanent provisions of the Brady Act went into effect on November 30, 1998, and required the U.S. Attorney General to establish NICS.

Shocker: Citizen Spy Networks to be Given Immunity

Bill Would Protect Big Sis Citizen Spies From Lawsuits

New York Republican Peter King has introduced a bill that would protect the army of citizen spies Homeland Security hopes to recruit under Janet Napolitano’s “See Something, Say Something” snoop campaign from lawsuits brought by innocent people wrongly accused of being terrorists or extremists.

“A top US lawmaker unveiled legislation on Wednesday to protect individuals who tip off authorities to potential extremist threats from lawsuits, in the event that they turn out to finger innocents,” reports AFP.

House Homeland Security Chairman King, who is pushing the “See Something, Say Something Act,” wants to shield “good citizens who report suspicious activity” from facing the consequences of misidentifying innocent behavior as extremism or terror.

Of course, this will only encourage untrained people to report any behavior whatsoever, no matter how benign, as potential terrorism, creating an army of enthusiastic but hapless citizen spies.

“King said his bill would extend protections from individuals “who report suspicious activity anywhere,” adds the report, making reference to the DHS’ “See Something, Say Something” campaign, which characterizes paying for things with cash as a suspicious activity.

The program was launched with the aid of Orwellian telescreens at Wal-Mart checkouts that play a message from Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano encouraging Americans to report anything unusual to Wal-Mart managers. The program was subsequently expanded to include 9,000 federal buildings, as well as sports stadiums, businesses and communities in general.

DHS will no longer be limited to the airport in the form of the TSA, but will become a ubiquitous entity policing everyone through a network of citizen spies and infrastructure security technology. The agency will also assume the mantle of regulating Americans’ every behavior and activity. DHS signs are already in place all over the country telling people where they can and can’t park their cars.

As we have documented, every historical example of such informant programs illustrates that they never lead to a more secure society, but instead breed suspicion, distrust, fear and resentment amongst the population. The only “benefit” that such programs have ever achieved is allowing the state to more easily identify and persecute political dissidents, while discouraging the wider population from engaging in any criticism against the government.

Since its official launch, the See Something, Say Something campaign has successfully wasted thousands of dollars of taxpayer money after people reported half-empty flasks of coffee and bags of clothes as deadly threats that required a response from bomb squads.

Of course, as we have documented, the federal government is fully aware of the fact that Americans are just as likely to be killed by lightning strikes, peanut allergies or accident-causing deer than they are by terrorists.

See Something, Say Something has little to do with combating terrorism, and everything to do with implanting the notion that Americans are constantly under surveillance from each other and may be reported to the authorities for any minor example of aberrant behavior no matter how benign.

In addition, since the Department of Homeland Security has characterized political activism which targets the state as extremist and terrorist activity, Americans are being trained that exercising their constitutional rights could get them in hot water with the law should their behavior be deemed suspicious by ignorant wannabe citizen spies who see themselves as terrorist hunters.


In an ironic twist, Rep. King, who is now trying to protect snoops who identify innocent behavior as extremism from lawsuits, was one of the primary co-sponsors of a 2009 House resolution that attempted to get answers as to why Homeland Security equated veterans, gun owners, Ron Paul supporters, and people who fly the U.S. flag, with violent terrorists, following the release of the agency’s infamous MIAC report.


UN Human Rights Official Under Fire For Describing 9/11 As A Cover Up

UN Human Rights Official Under Fire For Describing 9/11 As A Cover Up  An official working within the recently established UN Human Rights Council is under fire from an NGO closely affiliated with Israel for suggesting that the official explanation of the 9/11 attacks is a cover up.

Richard Falk, a former professor of international law emeritus at Princeton University, and an expert on human rights made the comments in a blog post last week, noting that the mainstream media is “unwilling to acknowledge the well-evidenced doubts about the official version of the events: an al Qaeda operation with no foreknowledge by government officials.”

Falk described this version of the 9/11 story as an “apparent cover up” containing “gaps and contradictions”.

Oklahoma-TSA Employees Could Face Increased Scrutiny Under Bill

OKLAHOMA CITY (January 21, 2011) – Transportation Security Administration employees who exploit their power over citizens could face significant state penalties under legislation filed by state Rep. John Bennett.
“It seems every day you hear a new story about a TSA employee being overly aggressive when conducting ‘pat-downs’ of citizens who decline to go through the full-body scan at the airport,” said Bennett, R-Sallisaw. “In some cases, it appears those pat-downs cross the line into sexual harassment or assault, something we should not tolerate, especially when teenagers are the target.
“My legislation will send a clear message that there will be serious consequences for anyone who takes advantage of their authority to grope or fondle children.”
House Bill 1245 would allow federal employees and contractors working for the TSA to face felony charges if they “touch, maul, or feel the body or private parts of any child” younger than 16 “in any lewd or lascivious manner.”
Those convicted would face up to 25 years in prison based on the age of the child.
The legislation would also allow for civil actions to be pursued against any TSA official accused of sexual battery.
The bill also adds an extra layer of protection by allowing citizens the right to request that local police be present when pat-downs are conducted to ensure a TSA employee does not abuse his or her power.
“Parents’ most important responsibility is the protection of their children,” Bennett said. “This legislation will help parents in that role by reducing the ability of any rouge TSA agent to mistreat a child.”

Empty Promises: 5 Reasons Why Barack Obama’s State Of The Union Address Was Completely Wrong About The Economy

theeconomiccollapseblog.com

Barack Obama's State of the Union address sure sounded good, didn't it?  There were lots of solemn promises, lots of stuff about America's "bright future" and a line about how we are now facing this generation's "Sputnik moment" that will surely make headlines all over the globe.  But we all knew that Barack Obama could give a good speech.  That has never been the issue. 

Empty Promise #1: America Will "Out-Innovate" The Rest Of The World And This Will Create More Jobs
During the State of the Union address, Barack Obama promised that the United States will "out-innovate" the rest of the world and that this will create more jobs.

Oh really?

Perhaps we could create some more cutting edge products like the Apple iPhone, right?

After all, Apple iPhones were one of the most wildly successful American technological innovations of the past decade. Surely this is the kind of innovation that Obama would like to see more of.

Well, do you know where Apple iPhones are made?

Apple iPhones are manufactured in China by workers making about 293 dollars a month (and that was after a big raise).

But it isn't just the Apple iPhone that is made overseas. The truth is that almost all high technology products are made outside of the United States.

In 2008, 1.2 billion cellphones were sold worldwide. So how many of them were manufactured inside the United States? Zero.

Ouch.

Not only that, another fact to note is that manufacturing employment in the U.S. computer industry was actually lower in 2010 than it was in 1975.

So exactly how is more "innovation" going to produce millions of U.S. jobs if all of the high tech manufacturing continues to be shipped out of the United States?

Empty Promise #2: America Will "Out-Educate" The Rest Of The World And This Will Create More Jobs

For decades, U.S. presidents have promised that "education" is the key to competing with the rest of the world.

Okay, if suddenly every single person in the United States had an extra college degree, would that mean that more jobs would suddenly start popping into existence?

Of course not.

Right now, we can't produce enough nearly enough jobs for all of the college graduates that we already have.

Sadly, the truth is that we are already experiencing an epidemic of unemployment among our college graduates. According to the Project on Student Debt, unemployment for new college graduates stood at 8.7 percent in 2009, which was way up from 5.8 percent in 2008.

But that is not the whole story.

Millions of college graduates that have been able to find jobs have ended up taking jobs that they didn't even need a college education for. The "underemployment rate" among college graduates is absolutely exploding.

In 1992, there were just 5.1 million "underemployed" college graduates in the United States, but by 2008 there were 17 million "underemployed" college graduates in the United States.

Many of our brightest young minds are now flipping burgers, waiting tables and welcoming people to Wal-Mart.

In fact, in the United States today 317,000 waiters and waitresses have college degrees.

Oh, but certainly the answer is to get more Americans to go to college, right?

It certainly sounds good in a speech for a politician to say that "more education" is the answer, but in the end all it amounts to is a hollow promise.

Getting more Americans to go to college will not create any more jobs, but it will create more debt. Americans now owe more than $884 billion on student loans, which is more than the total amount that Americans owe on their credit cards.

Empty Promise #3: America Will "Out-Build" The Rest Of The World And This Will Create More Jobs

So Barack Obama says that we are going to "out-build" the rest of the world?

Well, that certainly sounds good.

But what exactly does that mean?

Does it mean that we are going to quit shutting down our factories and tearing down our economic infrastructure?

After all, over 42,000 U.S. factories have closed down for good since 2001.

So is Obama going to do something to stop the flood of jobs and factories that are leaving the United States?

No, in fact he intends to "increase" trade with countries such as China and India. That is going to mean that thousands more factories and millions more jobs are going to be "outsourced".

Well, what about building up infrastructure such as roads, bridges, power grids, dams and ports?

That is certainly a very good idea.

According to the American Society of Civil Engineers, we need to spend approximately $2.2 trillion on infrastructure repairs and upgrades just to bring our existing infrastructure up to "good condition".

So we desperately need some investment in that area.

But there is a big problem.

We are flat broke.

As will be discussed below, the U.S. government is flat broke. Not only that, our state governments are flat broke and our local governments are flat broke.

So where will the trillions of dollars that we need for infrastructure come from?

Obama did not even come close to answering that question.

Empty Promise #4: America Will Become "The Best Place In The World To Do Business" And This Will Create More Jobs

It was incredible that Barack Obama could suggest that America is "the best place in the world to do business" with a straight face.

First of all, when you consider all forms of taxation, U.S. businesses face one of the most oppressive taxation regimes in the entire world.

But not only that, U.S. businesses also have to deal with one of the most horrific regulatory environments in the history of mankind.

As I have written about previously, the mountains of red tape that U.S. businesses have to wade through just continues to grow every single year.

The Federal Register is the main source of regulations for U.S. government agencies. In 1936, the number of pages in the Federal Register was about 2,600. Today, the Federal Register is over 80,000 pages long.

So is Barack Obama going to do anything about that?

Of course not.

In fact, Barack Obama and the Democrats have been really busy passing even more ridiculous regulations.

For example, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is projecting that the food service industry will have to spend an additional 14 million hours every single year just to comply with new federal regulations that mandate that all vending machine operators and chain restaurants must label all products that they sell with a calorie count in a location visible to the consumer.

Empty Promise #5: Barack Obama Pledges To "Take Responsibility" For Our Deficit Spending

During Barack Obama's first two years in office, the U.S. government added more to the U.S. national debt than the first 100 U.S. Congresses combined.

In fact, since Barack Obama took office, the U.S. government has gotten us into so much new debt that it breaks down to $10,429.64 for each of the 308,745,538 people counted by the 2010 U.S. census.

So is that "taking responsibility" for our deficit spending?

When Barack Obama took office, the U.S. national debt was 10.6 trillion dollars.

Today it is over 14 trillion dollars.

Government debt is absolutely out of control. At this point, the U.S. national debt is increasing by roughly 4 billion dollars every single day.

If all of this debt is not brought under control, it will bring down the entire U.S. financial system. According to a recent U.S. Treasury report to Congress, the U.S. national debt will reach 19.6 trillion dollars in 2015.

Can you imagine being 20 trillion dollars in debt?

That is 20,000,000,000,000 dollars.

So it would be really great if Barack Obama could do something about all of this debt, but based on his track record perhaps we should not be holding our breath.

Not that Obama is to blame for all of this.

The sad reality is that both parties have been involved in a massive debt orgy for decades and decades. Now the day of reckoning is almost here and it is going to be incredibly painful.

We are in so much trouble that it is hard to even try to put it into words. None of our politicians are telling us the whole truth. We are headed for a complete and total disaster.

MIAC Report Revisited

I did a post a couple of days ago called "MIAC Report Illogical". It was about how Homeland security considers Libertarians, gun owners, veterans and Ron Paul supporters a terrorist threat. I pointed out that they would be the last people to do an act of terrorism because with every act of terrorism, we lose more freedoms and that's not what they want.

But even as I was writing it, bad thoughts started seeping in. I started trying to find some logic in the report. The only thing that I could come up with was this.

Let's pretend for a moment that we (the people) are living near a big plantation and history is a little different. Instead of buying imported slaves, the plantation owner is just going to enslave people that are already here and not just some of them, but all of them. Who would the plantation owner expect to give him the most trouble?



Libertarians believe that people should be free to do what ever they want to as long as it doesn't infringe on the rights of others. Ron Paul supporters are basically Libertarians even if they don't realize it.

Gun owners, now there's a big problem, it's hard to enslave someone that has a gun.
(That's probably why slaves weren't known for having guns.) No Guns For Negroes

Veterans not only have guns but they know how to use them in a combat situation.

I bet you're starting to get my point.

The only way that the MIAC Report is logical is if they are looking at who would give the most resistance if they tried to make slaves of them.
Or alternate wording could be "Who would give the most resistance if they tried to take all of their rights away?"

Think about it.

Oklahoma To Consider “Compassionate” Marijuana Use

Lawmakers for the first time will consider legislation that seeks to exempt qualified medical marijuana patients from statewide criminal penalties.
Senate Bill 573 seeks to create the “Compassionate Use Act of 2011.” Under this Act, “The provisions of Section 2-402 of Title 63 of the Oklahoma Statutes relating to the possession of marijuana and Section 2-509 of Title 63 of the Oklahoma Statutes relating to the cultivation of marijuana shall not apply to a patient, or to a patient’s primary caregiver, who possesses or cultivates marijuana for the personal medical purposes of the patient upon the written or oral recommendation or approval of a physician.”
Under present law, the cultivation of even a single marijuana plant is classified as a felony offense, punishable by up to life in prison. Passage of SB 573 would provide needed legal relief for patients who presently suffer under some of the strictest marijuana penalties in the nation.
Further information about this and other statewide reform efforts is available from Oklahoma NORML, or by writing: ekco@swbell.net. You can also contact your state Senator about SB 573 by entering your zip code below.

Bud in a Bottle: New Marijuana Soda to Launch in Feb.

healthland.time.com
By Samantha Rollins Tuesday, January 25, 2011

How about a refreshing Canna Cola? A company based in Soquel, Calif., has created a new line of soda pot — or, marijuana soda — that it plans to launch in Colorado in February.

Canna Cola isn't the first marijuana soda on the market, but its designer Clay Butler, who said he has never used marijuana or smoked a cigarette but is a "firm believer that adults have an inalienable right to think, eat, smoke, drink, ingest, decorate, dress any way they choose," told the Santa Cruz Sentinel that his beverage collection will be distinguished by marketing. "You look at all the marijuana products out there, and they are so mom-and-pop, hippie-dippy and rinky-dink," he said.

According to the Sentinel, Butler's soda pot line will include the "flagship cola drink Canna Cola, the Dr Pepper–like Doc Weed, the lemon-lime Sour Diesel, the grape-flavored Grape Ape and the orange-flavored Orange Kush."

The labels promise "12 mind blowing ounces," and each bottle will retail for roughly $10 to $15. Containing 35 to 65 milligrams of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, Canna Cola is substantially less potent than many of the other drinks currently on the market, the Sentinel reports.

Scott Riddell, founder of Diavolo Brands, which is marketing Canna Cola, likened it to a "light beer" and said "it's got a mild marijuana taste," compared with heavier tasting competitors with three times the THC.

Canna Cola's makers plan to sell it to medical-marijuana dispensaries in Colorado starting next month, and hope to launch it in California by the spring. Looming, however, is a bill in Congress sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the so-called "Brownie Law," which passed the Senate last year. It would increase penalties for makers of products that combine marijuana with "a candy product" or anyone who markets such products to minors.

There are currently 15 states, as well as the District of Columbia, where medical marijuana is legal. However, the conditions of its legality differ from state to state, and marijuana for any purpose is still illegal under federal law.

Nearly 90 Percent of Germans Do Not Believe Official 9/11 Fairy Tale

January 20, 2011


According to a survey conducted by TNS Emnid, one of the largest polling institutes in Germany, nearly 90 percent of Germans do not believe the U.S. government explanation of what happened on September 11, 2001.

The poll was conducted for the German magazine World of the Miracles.

In addition to 89.5% not buying the official 9/11 story, the poll found that 73.7% of surveyed Germans believe that the Kennedy assassination was a conspiracy and nearly 80% believe the CIA conducts covert operations on German soil.

In 2003, a poll conducted by Forsa for the German newspaper Die Zeit found that 31% of Germans under 30 years of age believe the attacks were an inside job.

Skepticism about the official account has increased since 2001. In 2006, a New York Times/CBS News poll revealed only 16% of Americans thought the government was telling the truth about 9/11 and the intelligence prior to the attacks.

In 2004 a Zogby Poll showed that just over half of New Yorkers believed there was a cover up.

In May of 2006, another Zogby poll indicated approximately half of all Americans did not believe the official version.

MIAC Report Illogical

The MIAC (Missouri Information Analysis Center) Report that lists Libertarians, gun owners, veterans and Ron Paul supporters as a terrorist threat, among many other things, is illogical.
These are the very people that cherish the freedoms of this country the most. They well know that with every terrorist attack or mad man going on a killing spree, their freedoms are put in jeopardy. One need look no further than the patriot act, Clinton's gun control laws and new gun control bills following the Tucson shootings to see that this is true. Now with each attack not only do freedom lovers have to worry about gun control but also speech control. Libertarians, gun owners, veterans and Ron Paul supporters have nothing to gain and everything to lose from terror attacks. So I stick with my original statement, the MIAC Report is illogical.

Aside from her shocking decision not to file a brief in McDonald, we’ve learned that Elena Kagan was part of the Clinton White House’s gun-control efforts, where a Clinton staffer said, “We are taking the law and bending it as far as we can to capture a whole new class of guns.”
"A third instance of Elena Kagan opposing Americans’ Second Amendment right to own a gun has now become public, and is sure to become a major issue in her Supreme Court confirmation hearings. And it confirms that President Obama’s gun-control agenda is to create a Supreme Court that will “reinterpret” the Second Amendment until that amendment means nothing at all."


Secret State Police Report: Ron Paul, Bob Barr, Chuck Baldwin, Libertarians are Terrorists

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars
March 11, 2009

Alex Jones has received a secret report distributed by the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) entitled “The Modern Militia Movement” and dated February 20, 2009. A footer on the document indicates it is “unclassified” but “law enforcement sensitive,” in other words not for public consumption. A copy of the report was sent to Jones by an anonymous Missouri police officer.

The MIAC report specifically describes supporters of presidential candidates Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr as “militia” influenced terrorists and instructs the Missouri police to be on the lookout for supporters displaying bumper stickers and other paraphernalia associated with the Constitutional, Campaign for Liberty, and Libertarian parties.

“Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) provides a public safety partnership consisting of local, state and federal agencies, as well as the public sector and private entities that will collect, evaluate, analyze, and disseminate information and intelligence to the agencies tasked with Homeland Security responsibilities in a timely, effective, and secure manner,” explains the MIAC website. “MIAC is the mechanism to collect incident reports of suspicious activities to be evaluated and analyzed in an effort to identify potential trends or patterns of terrorist or criminal operations within the state of Missouri. MIAC will also function as a vehicle for two-way communication between federal, state and local law enforcement community within our region.”

MIAC is part of the federal “fusion” effort now underway around the country. “As of February 2009, there were 58 fusion centers around the country. The Department has deployed 31 officers as of December 2008 and plans to have 70 professionals deployed by the end of 2009. The Department has provided more than $254 million from FY 2004-2007 to state and local governments to support the centers,” explains the Department of Homeland Security on its website. Missouri is mentioned as a participant in this federal “intelligence” effort.

Last month, the ACLU issued a news release highlighting the activity of a fusion center in Texas as the “latest example of inappropriate police intelligence operations targeting political, religious and social activists for investigation,” in particular “Muslim civil rights organizations and anti-war protest groups.”

The MIAC report does not concentrate on Muslim terrorists, but rather on the so-called “militia movement” and conflates it with supporters of Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, Bob Barr, the so-called patriot movement and other political activist organizations opposed to the North American Union and the New World Order. The MIAC document is a classic guilt by association effort designed to demonize legitimate political activity that stands in opposition to the New World Order and its newly enshrined front man, Barack Obama.

In September of 2008, Missouri sheriffs and prosecutors organized truth squads to intimidate people opposed to Obama and threatened to arrest and prosecute anybody who ran “misleading television ads.” Missouri governor Matt Blunt eventually denounced the use of “police state tactics” on the part of the Obama-Biden campaign.

U.S. government commits avian holocaust with mass poisoning of millions of birds

Saturday, January 22, 2011
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Editor of NaturalNews.com
naturalnews.com




(NaturalNews) The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is engaged in what can only be called an avian holocaust through its Bye Bye Blackbird program that has poisoned tens of millions of birds over the last decade. The USDA even reports the number of birds it has poisoned to death in a PDF document posted on the USDA website.



Anticipating the USDA possibly removing that document, we have posted a copy on NaturalNews servers at:
http://www.naturalnews.com/files/US...

The original source URL of this file was:
http://www.aphis.usda.gov/wildlife_...

This document shows that, just in 2009, the following bird populations were poisoned and killed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, using taxpayer dollars:

(Listed as "Intentional" and "Killed / Euthanized")

Brown-headed cowbirds: 1,046,109
European Starlings: 1,259,714
Red-winged blackbirds: 965,889
Canadian geese: 24,519
Grackles: 93,210
Pigeons: 96,297

...plus tens of thousands of crows, doves, ducks, falcons, finches, gulls, hawks, herons, owls, ravens, sparrows, swallows, swans, turkeys, vultures and woodpeckers, among other animals.

The chart even shows that the USDA "unintentionally" euthanized one Bald Eagle.

Also murdered in 2009 by the USDA are victims of other species:

27,000 beavers, 1700 bobcats, 81,000 coyotes, 2,000 gray foxes, 336 mountain lions, 1900 woodchucks, 130 porcupines, 12,000 raccoons, 20,000 squirrels, 30,000 wild pigs, 478 wolves.

See the list yourself at: http://www.naturalnews.com/files/US...

The mass-murdering U.S. government that disavows violence?
Keep in mind that murdering animals is an act of violence. Yet in the wake of the recent Giffords shooting, we have U.S. government officials running around screaming about how much they disavow violence, saying things like "violence should never be used to resolve problems."

But their actions say something different: Violence against non-human life forms is not only tolerated and approved by the federal government, but even encouraged. Through these mass killings of birds, cougars, ducks and other animals, the United States federal government is actively engaged in widespread acts of violence against nature, murdering literally millions of animals on an annual basis.

Keep in mind that the numbers shown above are only for 2009. A similar number of animals were killed by the USDA all the other years, too, going all the way back to the 1960's when the "Bye Bye Blackbird" program was first initiated.

By my estimates, the USDA has actively murdered at least 100 million animals in America over the last four decades, putting this on the scale of an animal holocaust and a crime against nature.

Don't speak of crosshairs or straight shooting
In the politically correct language-muzzled aftermath of the Giffords shooting, the mere mention of the term "crosshairs" is enough to evoke an on-air apology on network news programs. Now you can't say someone is a "straight shooter," either.

But if you work for the USDA, you can murder animals by the tens of millions and virtually no network news outlet even covers the story. It's not enough, apparently, that humans have already caused widespread destruction of animal habitat across North America; now our own government is actively murdering literally millions of animals every year.

And for what? What is the justification for these actions? According to the USA, these animals are a "nuisance" to farmers.

When is it okay to kill an animal?
I have great admiration for farmers, and I understand that there are times when predators can get out of control and cause a lot of damage. Coyotes can get into the chicken coop and kill your chickens, so on most farms and ranches, coyotes are considered live target practice at every opportunity. That's why nearly all U.S. ranchers own rifles as tools which are used for sniping at groundhogs and moles which tend to take more than their fair share of garden vegetables.

I know one rancher who was trying to plant an orchard and woke up one morning to find his newly planted trees had all been destroyed by a small band of hyperactive beavers. Needless to say, those beavers ended up right in the crosshairs of a utility 22 rifle.

I also understand that wild pigs (feral swine) can root up valuable crops in their search for food. There are times when certain types of animals can become very difficult for ranchers and farmers to deal with. Although I personally don't enjoy the thought of it, I can at least understand that there might be an economic justification in the minds of farmers and ranchers to kill certain animals which are destroying their crops (or chickens, or orchards). I've never met a farmer or rancher who simply killed animals for the fun of it. The ammo is too expensive, and farmers don't have that kind of time to waste in the first place. Most farmers, by the way, have a very high respect for life and only kill when they feel they have no available alternative.

But since when did sparrows, starlings and blackbirds ever pose a real threat to anyone? They're not going to fly off with your cow, and to blame these birds for eating the grain being fed to the cows is ridiculous in the first place because cows aren't supposed to eat grain.

Cows are supposed to eat grass. If you are running a cow operation where the birds are eating your grain and you think the birds are the problem, the real problem is that you're feeding cows the wrong food! If you raise your cows on grass, the birds don't get into the grain and you don't have to poison the birds.

You see, when one ecological element gets out of balance (feeding grain to cows, for example), it then causes another problem that must be dealt with in some other destructive way (such as poisoning the birds). This cycle of disharmony continues and escalates until entire ecosystems are out of whack. Then the USDA shows up with a pickup truck full of poison bait and goes to work poisoning animals.

The solution isn't to keep poisoning animals and trying to control populations through toxic chemicals but rather to return to holistic web-of-life farming methods that work in harmony with nature rather than treating nature as the enemy.

Then again, we are talking about the U.S. Department of Agriculture here. And while the USDA has a great number of truly useful programs (such as their USDA organic label, which is a high-integrity program), the agency as a whole remains steeped in the conventional agricultural mythology of pesticides, GMOs and "poisoning varmints."

How the federal government is abusing your tax dollars
All of this really makes me wonder about the whole argument of Big Government versus small government. The argument of those who say we should all pay our taxes is that the government needs your money to "build roads and schools."

What they don't bother to mention is that the government is also using your money in very destructive ways, too, such as poisoning animals and pushing GMOs into European nations (http://www.naturalnews.com/030828_G...).

Personally, I am ethically and morally opposed to my money being used for such destructive purposes. And even though I continue to pay my taxes, I do so under strong protest to the reality that my own government is committing an avian holocaust -- a crime against nature -- with the help of the dollars I reluctantly send to Washington.

The very thought of it makes me sick. I would be more than happy to contribute money to actually building schools and roads. But to see my hard-earned dollars used by the USDA to murder innocent animals is extremely offensive, and it is a violation of my own ethics and principles. My main purpose in serving as the editor of NaturalNews.com has been to protect life. And in my mind, that protection extends beyond human life. I believe we also have a reasonable obligation to protect the life of the animals around us -- and the very ecosystems upon which we ultimately depend.

Although I can understand certain rare cases in which eliminating an animal may be the only logical choice for a farmer who is losing his crops and whose livelihood is at stake, it seems that the current killing of animals by the USDA is wildly indiscriminate and lacks proper moral or even economic justification.

Poisoning the humans, too?
It also brings up the bigger question that I posed in a previous article on this topic: If the U.S. government thinks nothing of murdering tens of millions of birds and mammals who have become a "nuisance," then what happens when the human population becomes "too large" and needs to be controlled, too?

Will they simply feed us poison and hope we die off like the birds?

I might suggest that program is already under way. It's called water fluoridation. Food additives. Vaccines. Pharmaceuticals.

And the government doesn't call it murder, by the way. They refer to it as "euthanasia."

The only difference is they're killing the humans more slowly.

US hides war facts from its citizens

PressTv
Thu Jan 20, 2011
January 21, 2011 by Infowars Ireland

Gareth Porter, US historian and investigative journalist



The US military industries are threats to Washington because of the high maintenance budget needs, US analyst Gareth Porter says, adding the war facts are mostly kept from the US citizens.
The US historian and investigative journalist believes that “the dangers posed by military-industrial groups have now morphed into greater threats.”
He further pointed out that the aggressive push for a hike in military expenditure is not only threatening the US armed forces, but also jeopardizing the national security instructions for the US government.
“It’s a broader threat that includes not just the military, but all of the national security institutions of the US executive branch plus the industrial allies that they have or the clients they (military-industrial groups) have plus people in Congress, who are associated with them because of the taint of money coming from the military contracts,” he told said in an exclusive interview with Press TV.

He spoke of the authority given to the US Special Operation Forces “to go into dozens of countries to wage war in secret, and to carry out various kinds of warfare that are not accountable to American people.”
The investigative journalist went on saying that the ‘permanent war’ status quo has exacerbated since 9/11 attacks “because the state formation has taken advantage of the climate of fear to take a whole series of steps … to increase enormously the power that the state formation has to make war.”

In total, there are now 255,065 US military personnel deployed worldwide. The United States has military bases in countries it has formerly occupied or militarily attacked.
According to Allgov.com, more than half a century after World War II and the Korean War, the US still has 268 bases in Germany, 124 in Japan, and 87 in South Korea.

With $663.8 billion, the United States has the biggest military budget in the world. In addition, it has the world’s largest number of military bases.

Oklahoma First Grader Suspended For ‘Offensive’ Hand Gesture

Jason Douglass
Infowars.com
January 21. 2011





An Oklahoma boy got in trouble during an assembly at Parkview Elementary when he made a simple hand gesture. No, not that one. The first grader just made the childhood symbol for a gun, pretending he was shooting. This is something we, at least guys, have always done. My kids make the gesture hundreds of times a day — like a nervous tick.

The boy was placed on in-school suspension and threatened with more severe punishment should he repeat the gesture.

Things have changed since I was kid. Schools are trying so hard control every aspect of our children’s lives. No longer is youthful exuberance an valid excuse for behavior. Kids today are expected to fall in line or they will receive stern punishment. The general message is to submit to authority.

You Are The Resistance Against The DHS Occupation Of America

Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones
Infowars.com
January 21, 2011


“Resistance V’s appeared all over the country….The V campaign meant ordinary people could feel they were doing something, however symbolic, to protest against the Occupation.”

“The British radio has called on people to write V for victory everywhere, and they are all over the place, even on shop fronts. They are also written on blackboards, on tables – everywhere. Even better, there’s a new badge: a V made with two crossed pins and worn on the lapel. Yvette and I counted seventy-five in five minutes!…On the Rue d’Astorg, I scribbled a V on a German car. I heard the sound of boots behind me, and moved off quickly.”

The Resistance, by Matthew Cobb.

America is in peril, the United States is being occupied as Homeland Security launches a total takeover of society and attempts to indoctrinate an army of citizen spies as the country accelerates its slide into banana republic despotism. Americans who can see what is unfolding feel helpless, powerless and overawed by the clear evisceration of their freedoms. The time has come for a massive campaign of powerful, symbolic, peaceful resistance.

The Department of Homeland Security has released a trio of chilling PSA video clips in which ordinary everyday activities are characterized as signs of potential terrorism, with the public being indoctrinated to assume the role of domestic spies reporting on their friends and neighbors as America sinks deeper into a decaying police state.

DHS will no longer be limited to the airport in the form of the TSA, but will become a ubiquitous entity policing everyone through a network of citizen spies and infrastructure security technology. The agency will also assume the mantle of regulating Americans’ every behavior and activity.

In wartime France, the victims of the Nazi occupation could see who their oppressors were, in 21st century America we’re not yet being policed 24/7 by black boot wearing stormtroopers, but perhaps something even more insidious – each other. Homeland Security is training Americans to spy on their friends, neighbors and colleagues by making us obsessed with the fear of terror – using the very tactic of terrorists to chill the 1st Amendment, tear up the bill of rights, and intimidate Americans into accepting constant harassment, bag searches, body scans, interrogations, and suffocating security-theatre everywhere they go.

So why the V campaign? What is it and what will it achieve? It’s all about fighting back against the psychological warfare we are now being subjected to by our new would-be slavemasters. They like to remind us that they’re our bosses with their signs – report suspicious activity posters and video messages at Wal-Mart checkouts - terrorism tip line billboards – Homeland Security posters telling Americans where they can and can’t park their car – using symbols, slogans and messages to herd the sheep and elicit their obedience is obviously a very important component of any authoritarian regime – so why not fight back with our own symbols, slogans and messages?

The Obama Joker poster campaign attracted massive attention and was a huge success in creating an underground buzz of resistance. The V for Victory campaign is based on the same basic idea.

We need to tell them who we are and that we’re not their slaves. This in turn will encourage others to feel secure in the knowledge that there are Americans who are working to protect freedom of speech and the right to criticize government without being treated as a terrorist, and that Homeland Security’s constant hyped fearmongering about non-existent terror threats is nothing more than an act of psychological warfare to make Americans shut up, mute their dissent, and follow orders like good little children.

You Are The Resistance Against The DHS Occupation Of America 210111top2

From VIPR teams that now patrol Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor and Los Angeles rail lines; ferries in Washington state; bus stations in Houston; and mass transit systems in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Washington and Baltimore, to invasive pat downs at bus and train terminals and on street corners across the country, to radiation-emitting naked body scanners that roam the highways scanning vehicles and homes, to interrogation checkpoints at sporting and other public events, Big Sis is engaged in a total takeover of society, turning America into a giant prison grid where everyone is guilty until proven innocent and treated as a potential terrorist.

Show me a case in history where the government recruiting the citizens to spy on each other led to a more secure, happy, free and prosperous society and I’ll show you a chicken with teeth. The best possible outcome, as in East Germany, was a despotic society in which free speech was silenced and political dissidents were imprisoned. The usual outcome, as in Stalinist Russia or Nazi Germany – was outright tyranny and death camps. Neither have any place in America.

Homeland Security is now trying to mimic the way of all oppressive regimes, by turning the American people against each other. Their agenda is public – DHS’ own documents clearly state that they consider libertarians, Ron Paul supporters, constitutionalists, gun owners and virtually any political activism as extremism and possible terrorism. As we have seen from a myriad of reports put out by the DHS and threat fusion centers across the country – the primary targets of Homeland Security in their campaign to have everyone treated with suspicion are people who know their rights and people who dare to exercise their freedoms.

This has nothing to do with any genuine terror threat. Americans are being coerced into living in constant fear of terror, when in reality they are more likely to die from peanut allergies, lightning strikes, or accident-causing deer than terrorist attacks.

We need to invoke the spirit of the French who were occupied by the Nazis in World War Two. The V for victory campaign in Paris and elsewhere helped the occupied to understand that the resistance against tyranny was legion. It gave the victims hope that they were not isolated and that their community was bonded in freedom, reducing fear that they would be reported to the authorities by collaborators as a subversive or terrorist for expressing dissent against their occupiers.

To encourage more people to participate in this outreach, we are incorporating it into our, “The Answer to 1984 is 1776″ campaign, and offering $7,000 dollars for the winner who posts the best video on You Tube. Second place will win $2,000, 3rd place wins $1,000. Use the V for Victory flyers we have provided to let Big Sis know that we are not her slaves. Use them on banner hangs or as stand alone flyers, post them on message boards or any places where announcements are made in your local community. Anywhere that’s legal and lawful, we want to see the V for victory proudly displayed as a symbolic message of resistance and defiance.

Click here to download all the V for Victory posters in PDF format. Pick your favorite and print them off to use as flyers, or alternatively you are free to adapt the design to your own tastes. This is a campaign that everyone who wants to put on record their opposition to this tyranny can become involved with – the added incentive of cash prizes adds the element of competition and also increases media coverage.

Remember – you are the resistance!

“Never has France been engaged in a more noble or beautiful war than in the one that is fought in cellars where her free newspapers are printed, in the nocturnal terrains and secret rocky coves where she receives her free friends and from where her free children swarm out, in the torture chambers where despite the pliers, the needles reddened by fire and the broken bones, the French die as free men.”

Joseph Kessel, French Resistance Leader.

Unsolicited Advice

The U.S. Dollar is going down.

If you can, buy now.
Buy food that can be stored.
If you can afford it at all, buy gold or silver.

If you save change, go through it and save all nickels, dimes and quarters that are 1964 or older.

Try to get your hands on non-GMO non-hybrid seeds, even if you don't plan to grow a garden theses seeds may become very valuable for trade.

Get guns, get ammo, get clips. Even if you don't believe in guns, you should get some to trade later, when your money is worthless.

If you are saving cash, trade in $100 bills for 100 $1 dollar bills.

Buy toilet paper.

Buy medicine.

(I give this advise because I really want to help.)

You might be saying "Oh that's just crazy talk Tex!"

Ok, good, don't do any of these things, that just leaves more for the smart people.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
P.S.
The tone of this post might make it seem like it's an emergency, that's not what I meant. As you know the U.S. Dollar is the world reserve currency, so we can just print more when ever we want. I think that might change soon, like this year or next, when it does, everything will change, for the worse. I think we will be looking at hyper-inflation. This isn't just my opinion, I listen to people that have been right in the past. Hey, like I said, it's just free advise, you can take it or leave it, I'm not trying to sell anything. BTW, I think gasoline will be $5 a gallon soon. Why? Because our dollar is getting weaker and weaker.

Classy Father Of 9-Year-Old Victim: Don’t Exploit My Daughter’s Death To Revoke Freedoms

Prison Planet.com
Monday, January 10, 2011
What a classy, brave and thoughtful individual John Green is – father of the 9-year-old girl murdered by Jared Loughner – Green contradicts the distasteful rush to exploit Saturday’s tragic events as a vehicle through which to eviscerate the 1st and 2nd Amendments.
Speaking to Fox News, Green labeled Loughner’s rampage a “random act” and said that the death of his daughter should not be exploited to revoke freedoms.
Speaking on the subject of how travel became a nightmare after 9/11, John Green said, “We don’t need any more restrictions on our society,” as a consequence of the shootings, and said that tragic events such as those that led to the murder of his daughter was the price Americans have to pay for freedom.

China Plants Flag on Constitution Avenue

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
January 18, 2011



On Tuesday night, Obama followed the script closely.

He sat down to what the corporate media describes as “an unusual and intimate dinner” with Hu Jintao, the CEO of the sprawling slave labor gulag and globalist dream come true in China.

After dinner, Hu Jinato and Obama attended a “pomp-filled gala” designed to celebrate with sickening pageantry what is in essence a planting of the Chinese flag on American soil.

The Associated Press admits the lavish affair with its over-the-top entreaties is designed to “soften the American public’s suspicions about China,” a nation that detains and tortures individuals for exercising their rights to freedom of association, freedom of religion and freedom of expression.

According to the corporate media, Obama will lecture China on the persecution of Tibetans, Uhgurs, Falun Gong, environmental degradation, currency manipulation, theft of intellectual property, imbalance of and unfair trade practices, human rights violations and the release of Liu Xiaobo, the Nobel Prize winner imprisoned by China’s authoritarian leadership.



China will in turn take the U.S. to task for supposedly initiating a global depression that will undoubtedly dwarf the Great Depression of the 1930s, accumulating a staggering debt, and interfering in its internal affairs.

Since the establishment of the Federal Reserve, economic depressions have become scientifically engineered affairs, as Congressman Lindberg said in the Congressional Record on December 22, 1913, after the Federal Reserve Act was passed in the dead of the night.

We are told the Chinese are mighty sore about their undervalued Treasury stake, but this is a cover too. QE2 and the printing of funny money out of thin air by the Federal Reserve is a shrewd if cynical device engineered to take down the once Great United States.

China owns us. There will be blood – but not before Obama, Biden, Clinton, and the political class grovel and kiss the ring and this act is covered up by a complaisant corporate media.

Debt, trade, discussion, pomp and circumstance – all of this is little more than cover. Hu Jintao and his minions have arrived in the district of criminals for one reason and one reason only – to plant a red flag of corporatism – that is, fascism – on Constitution Avenue.

According to the globalists, China is the next evolutionary step in human history. Our future is a high-tech prison planet, electronic panopticon, and eventually a killing field unless we do something about it – and soon.

“Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community of purpose. The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao’s leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history,” David Rockefeller told the New York Times.

Mao’s “social experiment” has come to America. The holy writ of Maoism was forged out of Marxism, the latter a contrivance of Wall Street and the banksters.

Cartel capitalism has enjoyed a long standing love affair with communism, as the late Gary Allen so eloquently pointed out.

“If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of superrich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all,” Allen wrote. “Instead it becomes the logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs. Communism, or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite.”

Power-seeking megalomaniacs built the China Miracle from the ground up over the last few decades and now it has come to claim a stake in America.

Hu Jintao did not arrive here to eat dinner in the the Old Family Dining Room at the White House and talk shop with Obama the teleprompter reader and his Goldman Sachs, CFR, Trilateral Commission, and Bilderberg advisors.

Hu Jintao arrived to plant the flag and initiate the next phase in a globalist effort to turn the planet into a slave gulag and ultimately a well-oiled killing machine meticulously designed by an inbred gaggle of eugenicist psychopaths.

Transition to tyranny: America has been swallowed up by the globalists and will now be run from Beijing

The flags along Constitution Avenue tell you everything you need to know – America has been sold out and our new Chinese slavemasters are now leading the sheep to slaughter. Even as Barack Obama bows and fawns to President Hu Jintao, the globalists for whom he fronts are sharpening the knives and preparing to unleash the bloodletting as the dying carcass of America is dragged into line to facilitate the global management of the planet.

Not satisfied with a hemorrhaging trade deficit with China that continues to bleed American jobs at a rate of millions, a crumbling manufacturing base being replaced by the endless import of cheap slave goods from the Communist state, and a stunted economy being rapidly outpaced by the Red Dragon, the Obama administration wanted to further drill it in to Americans who the new boss is yesterday, by placing Chinese flags throughout Washington DC before Obama’s fawning meeting with unelected President Hu Jintao.

Everyone is painfully aware of the fact that China now owns the United States economically, with the Chinese central bank being the largest debt holder at approaching $1 trillion dollars. The average American family with two children collectively owes around $12,000 dollars to China. The Communist state’s ownership of long term U.S. Treasury Securities means the United States pays upwards of $100 million dollars a day to China in terms of interest alone.

China’s huge accumulation of US dollars gives it the sway to lead the United States by the nose like a sheep to slaughter, holding in its hands the power to decide the economic destiny of the now collapsing American empire. The culmination of this process moved a step closer this week when Hu Jintao made it clear that China was preparing to sharpen the knife for the bloodletting to begin, by deriding the dollar as a “product of the past” and signaling its replacement with a new global monetary system based around the Chinese yuan.

This transition is only becoming more obvious with the continuing fire sale of crucial infrastructure to the Red Dragon. Alex Jones’ first documentary film America: Destroyed By Design, made in 1997, warned Americans that the sell-out to the Chinese was the first step on the road to the sacking of the American economy and pulling the plug on key US infrastructure in the move towards global management of the planet.

The figures don’t lie – after a 20 year process of gradual sellout overseen by Clinton, Bush and now Obama – China owns America.




However, to have that notion aggressively reinforced by the plethora of Chinese flags that invaded DC this week goes beyond mere pomp and ceremony. This is meant to send a message to Americans that the United States is being hollowed out and swallowed up by the globalists, and that the center of the new world order empire will be transferred to Communist China in a bloodless coup.

And at the center of it all is a fawning, obedient, bowing Barack Obama, who ironically in the same week as Martin Luther King was remembered, played his role diligently as the house slave for his globalist masters, lavishing Jintao with a private dinner in a stunt that the Associated Press admits was designed to “soften the American public’s suspicions about China,” a nation that detains and tortures individuals for exercising their rights to freedom of association, freedom of religion and freedom of expression, while abducting, beating and performing forced abortions on women who refuse to submit to the country’s brutal one child policy.

The sickening worship and fealty displayed towards Jintao and China this week is all about training Americans to recognize who their new slavemasters are – the globalists who have exalted the Communist state as a model country for the new world order – a world in which antiquated ideas about freedom of the individual, prosperity, self-determination, family and happiness will be abolished.

Taiwanese animators got it right with the following cartoon, with depicts Obama’s subservience to America’s new boss, unelected dictator Hu Jintao.
