So...You've Been Indefinitely Detained

Kelly Clarkson sales spike after Ron Paul endorsement

By James O'Toole @CNNMoney December 30, 2011: 6:35 PM ET

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- A word of advice to prospective American Idol contestants: vote libertarian.

One day after she announced her support for Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul on Twitter, sales of pop singer Kelly Clarkson's most recent album were surging Friday on Amazon.com.

Sales of Clarkson's album Stronger shot up 442% between Thursday and Friday afternoon on Amazon (AMZN, Fortune 500), moving the album from #38 to #7 on Amazon's sales list.

While there's no way to tell whether her support for Paul was the only reason for this jump, the endorsement clearly made a difference for some fans.

"I must admit I have not really followed you but your recent stance on Ron Paul made me check you out," one fan wrote Friday in a review of the album on Amazon. "If you are smart enough to support Ron Paul then you are probably talented too."

"JUST DISCOVERED YOU...BECAUSE OF RON PAUL!" another wrote. "The energy of these songs would be great as Ron Paul event background music."

On Thursday, Clarkson wrote on Twitter that if the libertarian candidate "wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he's got my vote."

"I love Ron Paul. I liked him a lot during the last republican nomination and no one gave him a chance," she wrote in an extended tweet.

Although she identified herself as a Republican, the former American Idol champ said she "voted Democrat last election." And this go-round, "Out of all of the Republican nominees, he's my favorite," she said.

The Paul campaign thanked Clarkson for her "kind words" in a tweet on Thursday.

News of Clarkson's Amazon sales was picked up Friday by the Hollywood Reporter. Her album sat at #39 on the Billboard album charts as of Friday afternoon, though it was up to #13 on Apple's iTunes charts.

CNN's Political Unit contributed to this report.

The 25 Illuminati goals

beforeitsnews.com

The 25 Illuminati goals:

1. All men are more easily inclined towards evil than good.
2. Preach Liberalism
3. Use the idea of freedom to bring about class wars
4. Any and all means should be used to reach the Illuminati Goals as they are justified.
5. The right to lie in force.
6. The power of our resources must remain invisible until the very moment it has gained the strength that no cunning or force can undermine it.
7. Avocation of mob psychology to control the masses.
8. Use alcohol, drugs, corruption and all forms of vice to systematically corrupt the youth of the nation.
9. Seize property by any means
10. Use of slogans such as equity, liberty, fraternity delivered into the mouths of the masses in psychological warfare
11. War should be directed so that the nations on both sides are placed further in debt and peace conferences conducted so that neither combatant obtains territory rights.
12. Members must use their wealth to have candidates chosen and placed in public office who will be obedient to their demands and will be used as pawns in the game by those behind the scenes. Their advisers will have been reared and trained from childhood to rule the affairs of the world.
13. Control the press.
14. Agents will come forward after fermenting traumatic situations and appear to be the saviors of the masses.
15. Create industrial depression and financial panic, unemployment, hunger, shortage of food and use this to control the masses or mob and then use the mob to wipe out all those who stand in the way.
16. Infiltrate into the secret Freemasons to use them for Illuminati purposes.
17. Expound the value of systematic deception, use high sounding slogans and phrases and advocate lavish promises to the masses even though they cannot be kept.
18. Detail plans for resolutions, discuss the art of street fighting which is necessary to bring the population into speedy subjection.
19. Use agents as advisers behind the scenes after wars and use secret diplomacy to gain control.
20. Establish huge monopolies that lean toward world government control.
21. Use high taxes and unfair competition to bring about economic ruin by control of raw materials. Organize agitation among the workers and subsidize their competitors.
22. Build up armaments with Police forces and Soldiers sufficient to protect our needs.
23. Members and leaders of the one world government would be appointed by the directors.
24. Infiltrate into all classes and levels of society and government for the purpose of fooling, bemusing and corrupting the youthful members of society by teaching them theories and principles that we know to be false.
25. National and International laws should be used to destroy civilization and enslave and control the people.

4th OF JULY CELEBRATIONS CANCELLED INDEFINITELY – Ask President Obama and the Congress why…

December 28, 2011 by  
Filed under Establishing The Police State, Featured Stories
(Miss American for FederalJack)   The first question I want to ask the president and all the members of congress is why did you hate the way America was?  The saying goes ‘love it or leave it’.  Why are you still living here?   Why did you tell us you wanted to serve and represent your fellow citizens, then turn your back on us and our country?  We did not plan or carry out the attacks on America on Sept. 11th 2001, but you have treated us like we did.   You’ve sent our valiant soldiers to the other side of the world to avenge 9/11 and stop another attack, but have stood silently by while there was an invasion of the U.S. at our southern border.  Why have you failed to protect us from that?  Why have you let the ‘terrorists win’ by destroying everything that was wonderful about America?  You’ve taken away our reason to fly our flag proudly and shamed our name around the world with your legalized brutality and torture.  Why have you taken away our reasons for wanting to live here?  Why are you taking away everything we had?  Did we really deserve this?
Why have you come to despise us for wanting to know what really happened to us on 9/11?  Why have you not helped us to find all the answers?   Why do you hate us for doing what Americans do, which is speak up, ask questions, and search for the truth?   Why is that a bad thing now?  Why have you decided to make us fear you?   Why is it a ‘terroristic threat’ to want to hang on to what we had?  Americans have always fought for what we had, but now it’s a crime.
Why have you allowed foreign interests into our country to control and dictate to us the way they want to shape our country?  Why have you allowed foreign interests to dictate what you do?  Why are you allowing foreign interests to take over America and inflict such harm in so many ways to our people?  Why have you let non-citizens hijack our military’s purpose for their own goals and gain?  How can you know and watch as nameless hidden faces ruin the very air we breathe, making us sick and killing animals and plants by aerosol spraying deadly toxins day after day, month after month?  If you are making laws because you fear us, why don’t you also make laws for those who are actually terrorizing and sickening all of us with their Franken food, fluoridated water, and electric meter slow electrocution?   Why do you hate us so much?  Why have you chosen to betray the essence of our values and ideals?  What is real the reason you have committed treason against us?  Why didn’t you leave our country if you didn’t love it like we did?   Why are you still here if you hated America enough to drive a stake through her very heart?

Ron Paul: The NDAA Repeals More Rights

Ron Paul
Infowars.com
December 27, 2011
Little by little, in the name of fighting terrorism, our Bill of Rights is being repealed. The 4th amendment has been rendered toothless by the PATRIOT Act. No more can we truly feel secure in our persons, houses, papers, and effects when now there is an exception that fits nearly any excuse for our government to search and seize our property. Of course, the vast majority of Americans may say “I’m not a terrorist, so I have no reason to worry.” However, innocent people are wrongly accused all the time. The Bill of Rights is there precisely because the founders wanted to set a very high bar for the government to overcome in order to deprive an individual of life or liberty. To lower that bar is to endanger everyone. When the bar is low enough to include political enemies, our descent into totalitarianism is virtually assured.
The PATRIOT Act, as bad is its violation of the 4th Amendment, was just one step down the slippery slope. The recently passed National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) continues that slip toward tyranny and in fact accelerates it significantly. The main section of concern, Section 1021 of the NDAA Conference Report, does to the 5th Amendment what the PATRIOT Act does to the 4th. The 5th Amendment is about much more than the right to remain silent in the face of government questioning. It contains very basic and very critical stipulations about due process of law. The government cannot imprison a person for no reason and with no evidence presented or access to legal counsel.
The dangers in the NDAA are its alarmingly vague, undefined criteria for who can be indefinitely detained by the US government without trial. It is now no longer limited to members of al Qaeda or the Taliban, but anyone accused of “substantially supporting” such groups or “associated forces.” How closely associated? And what constitutes “substantial” support? What if it was discovered that someone who committed a terrorist act was once involved with a charity? Or supported a political candidate? Are all donors of that charity or supporters of that candidate now suspect, and subject to indefinite detainment? Is that charity now an associated force?


Additionally, this legislation codifies in law for the first time authority to detain Americans that has to this point only been claimed by President Obama. According to subsection (e) of section 1021, “[n]othing in this section shall be construed to affect existing law or authorities relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States, or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States.” This means the president’s widely expanded view of his own authority to detain Americans indefinitely even on American soil is for the first time in this legislation codified in law. That should chill all of us to our cores.
The Bill of Rights has no exemptions for “really bad people” or terrorists or even non-citizens. It is a key check on government power against any person. That is not a weakness in our legal system; it is the very strength of our legal system. The NDAA attempts to justify abridging the bill of rights on the theory that rights are suspended in a time of war, and the entire Unites States is a battlefield in the War on Terror. This is a very dangerous development indeed. Beware.

Tweeting the word drill could mean your Twitter account is read by government spies

  • Fake profiles used by Department of Homeland Security, says privacy group
  • List of keywords flags 'danger' signal
  • DHS may attempt to identify users from their accounts
  • Keywords include 'virus', 'drill' and 'illegal immigrant'

The Department of Homeland Security makes fake Twitter and Facebook profiles for the specific purpose of scanning the networks for 'sensitive' words - and tracking people who use them.
The Department for Homeland Security announced plans to scan social networks for keywords such as 'human to animal', 'outbreak', 'strain' and 'drill', and then identify users, claims an online privacy group

Simply using a word or phrase from the DHS's 'watch' list could mean that spies from the government read your posts, investigate your account, and attempt to identify you from it, acccording to an online privacy group.
The words which attract attention range from ones seemingly related to diseases or bioweapons such as 'human to animal' and 'outbreak' to other, more obscure words such as 'drill' and 'strain'.
The DHS also watches for words such as 'illegal immigrant'.
The DHS outlined plans to scans blogs, Twitter and Facebook for words such as 'illegal immigrant', 'outbreak', 'drill', 'strain', 'virus', 'recovery', 'deaths', 'collapse', 'human to animal' and 'trojan', according to an 'impact asssessment' document filed by the agency.
When its search tools net an account using the phrases, they record personal information.
It's still not clear how this information is used - and who the DHS shares it with.

RECALL: Montanans Organize to Remove Senators Who Voted For Traitorous Detainment Bill

Mac Slavo
SHTFplan.com
Wednesday, December 28, 2011
Americans were outraged after our elected representatives in Congress moved forward with over a trillion dollars in emergency bailout funds for banks, investment firms and failing corporations in the midst of the 2008 financial crisis.

After tens of thousands of phone calls to the Congressional switchboard, overwhelmingly against the bailout funds, the American public was largely ignored by the majority of their elected representatives, who would eventually saddle taxpayers with a long-term debt in excess of $20 trillion.
In March of 2009, the American public resoundingly rejected the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obama Care) after it was made known that the bill would mandate, by force if necessary, that every citizen would be required to acquire health insurance. Not only did Congress and the President pass legislation that would, in a supposedly free country, require every American to forcefully pay for a service they may not want, but the more than 1000 page bill was written, introduced and approved before any Senator or Representative had a chance to read it, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi famously saying:
“You have to pass the bill before you can find out what is in it…”
While those laws may be shamelessly contradictory to the fundamental Constitutional law of the land, and as outrageous as it was for Congressional representatives to ignore the American public’s calls to reject the bills, none of those come even remotely close to the most recent transgressions against the people with the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act.
As Americans enjoyed themselves with the holiday shopping season, Congress and the Executive branch worked tirelessly to destroy the 4th and 6th Amendments of the US Constitution, which protect an individual’s natural right “to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures” and ensure due process with evidence, witnesses, and public trial. The passage of the NDAA has prompted Senator Rand Paul to warn Americans that they could be considered terrorists for seemingly innocent activity and an an op-ed in the New York Times titled Guantanamo Forever? by U.S. Marine generals Charles Krulak and Joseph Hoar argued that the new legislation would essentially nullify aspects of the Constitution, saying “due process would be a thing of the past.”
One thing is clear with the passage of this legislation, and that is those Senators and Congressman who voted for its passage are violating their oaths to support and protect the Constitution of the United States, because everything in the bill is counter to the principles outlined in our founding document. As such, concerned citizens around the country are now actively pursuing grass roots efforts to utilize a never-before enacted power of the people: the recall.
Via The Daily Kos and Sherri Questioning All:
Moving quickly on Christmas Day after the US Senate voted 86 – 14 to pass the National Defense Authorization Act of 2011 (NDAA) which allows for the indefinite military detention of American citizens without charge or trial, Montanans have announced the launch of recall campaigns against Senators Max Baucus and Jonathan Tester, who voted for the bill.
Montana is one of nine states with provisions that say that the right of recall extends to recalling members of its federal congressional delegation, pursuant to Montana Code 2-16-603, on the grounds of physical or mental lack of fitness, incompetence, violation of oath of office, official misconduct, or conviction of certain felony offenses.
Section 2 of Montana Code 2-16-603 reads:
“(2) A public officer holding an elective office may be recalled by the qualified electors entitled to vote for the elective officer’s successor.”
While the Montana Constitution (and those of other states) allows for a recall to take place, there is some question about whether these powers, which are technically undefined by the US Constitution, can be used to remove acting Congressional representatives:
The website Ballotpedia.org cites eight other states which allow for the recall of elected federal officials: Arizona, Colorado, Louisiana, Michigan, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, and Wisconsin. New Jersey’s federal recall law was struck down when a NJ state judge ruled that “the federal Constitution does not allow states the power to recall U.S. senators,” despite the fact the Constitution explicitly allows, by not disallowing (“prohibited” in the Tenth Amendment,) the states the power to recall US senators and congressmen:
“The powers not…prohibited…are reserved to the States…or to the people.” – Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
The issue of federal official recall has never reached the federal courts.
Nonetheless, we may soon find out, as Montana is spearheading the movement to remove both of their Senators from office, as per the petition draft that is now circulating:
“The Sixth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees all U.S citizens:
“a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed…”
The National Defense Authorization Act of 2011 (NDAA 2011) permanently abolishes the Sixth Amendment right to a jury trial, “for the duration of hostilities” in the War on Terror, which was defined by President George W. Bush as “task which does not end” to a joint session of Congress on September 20, 2001.
Those who voted Aye on December 15th, 2011, Bill of Rights Day, for NDAA 2011 have attempted to grant powers which cannot be granted, which violate both the spirit and the letter of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
The Montana Recall Act stipulates that officials including US senators can only be recalled for physical or mental lack of fitness, incompetence, violation of the oath of office, official misconduct, or conviction of a felony offense. We the undersigned call for a recall election to be held for Senator Max S. Baucus [and Senator Jonathan Tester] and charge that he has violated his oath of office, to protect and defend the United States Constitution.”
While there may be eight other states whose Constitutions allow for the recall of federally elected officials, the US Constitution itself has reserved these rights for the people of each state, suggesting that such a recall movement can gain steam all over the country, and may be our last best hope of restoring Constitutional rule of law to America.

U.S. Desperately Seeking an Excuse to Attack Iran (Like WMDs in Iraq)

America’s farmlands to be carpet-bombed with Vietnam-era Agent Orange chemical

If Dow petition approved

Mike Adams
Natural News
December 27, 2011

[WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGES] 




(NaturalNews) A key chemical of one of the most horrifying elements of the Vietnam War — Agent Orange — may soon be unleashed on America’s farmlands. Considered by world nations to be a “Weapon of Mass Destruction” (WMD), Agent Orange was dropped in the millions of gallons on civilian populations during the Vietnam War in order to destroy foliage and poison North Vietnamese soldiers. The former president of the Vietnamese Red Cross, Professor Nhan, described it as, “…a massive violation of human rights of the civilian population, and a weapon of mass destruction.”

A key chemical in that weapon – 2,4-D – is just months away from being dropped on agricultural land across the United States. Dow AgroSciences, which along with DuPont and Monsanto is heavily invested in genetically engineered crops, has petitioned the U.S. government to deregulate a variety of GE corn that’s resistant to 2,4-D, which comprises 50% of the recipe of Agent Orange.

NaturalNews broke this story yesterday and published the details:
http://www.naturalnews.com/034492_D…

If the petition is approved by Washington, it would turn America’s corn fields into chemical warfare zones targeted for mass pesticide poisoning with 2,4-D chemicals. The corn, of course, would be immune to 2,4-D, so it would uptake the chemical and transport it right into the structure of the corn kernels, creating “Agent Orange corn bombs” that would be chemically unleashed when consumed by human beings.

This is just the latest example of how industrial chemical giants and GMO companies of the world are committing acts of genocide against innocents. The introduction of 2,4-D-resistant GE corn is, essentially, an act of war against humanity.

Capital One Accused of Illegally Suing Bankrupt Americans

Noel Brinkerhoff and David Wallechinsky
All Gov

December 26, 2011
Filing and completing bankruptcy proceedings is supposed to free consumers from paying any outstanding debt to credit card companies. But that hasn’t stopped Capital One, one of the leading credit card lenders, from going after bankrupt Americans.
More than 15,000 times, Capital One has taken individuals who have gone bankrupt to court in an effort to squeeze more money out of them. To do so knowingly is against the law. The company claims it just made a mistake…several thousand times.
Of the 15,500 people subjected to Capital One lawsuits, more than 800 of them have filed counter-suits to stop the company.
One bankruptcy judge, David Houston III in Aberdeen, Mississippi, plans to demand that representatives of Capital One appear before him in his court to explain its debt-collection practices. The judge previously rejected the company’s request to throw out a lawsuit that alleged Capital One sought $43,396.59 that was legally erased in an earlier bankruptcy case filed by the same person.
“I want some proof from the company that this was a legitimate error and not a conscious, malevolent effort to go out and collect a debt that’s been discharged,” Houston told The Wall Street Journal.
According to the Journal, “In 2008, a U.S. bankruptcy trustee in Massachusetts accused Capital One of illegally trying 5,600 times to collect debts already wiped out by a bankruptcy judge.” That same year, Capital One was itself saved from potential bankruptcy when it received a $3.55 billion bailout from U.S. taxpayers as part of the Treasury Department’s Capital Purchase Program.
The founder, chairman and chief executive officer of Capital One is the ironically named Richard Fairbank.

Beware Of ..................Bloggers!!!

Fear of ................bloggers!!!!!

I have just sat through the movie Contagion. It is a disaster movie about a worldwide flu epidemic! Knowing what I know, it is very obviously a government propaganda show that cost $60 million to make, thinly disguised as fiction with famous actors. It is preparing the way for a real flu epidemic. There are some very clear messages in the film: ... The blogger who exposes the truth (this could be modelled on you Tap) turns out to be a liar and a crook who makes $4million, whilst he was accusing those nice pharmaceutical people of doing the same! The 12 million gullible idiots who follow him and trust him donate for his bail money (starting to sound like Julian Assange). The message is Don't Trust The Blogger. Trust the Government and the Pharmaceutical companies. ... The virus originally came from a bat, then to a pig, then a human. Lots of government officials and WHO experts work really hard to work out the single source, risking their lives. The message is Flu Epidemics Come From Animals. ... The vaccine is released untested and people are saved. The message is Its OK not to test the vaccine and break all the normal safety rules because we are saving lives. Vaccines are good. ... The blogger was recommending a natural plant cure. This turned out to be false and a hook for making a profit. The message is Natural Remedies are a waste of time and you are being ripped off. Unfortunately lots of people will watch this and get all these messages implanted subliminally in their brains. You and other bloggers are being framed.

It's really quite simple, if you want the military to be able to detain you indefinitely

We always here the BS about the wars that this country wages.

"We are fighting for our freedoms!"

Lets do our part to help "fight for our freedoms" vote these "Aye" idiots out of office.

20 Lies Every American Should Know...

Sun-Believable

ScienceDaily (Dec. 21, 2011) — Imagine if the next coat of paint you put on the outside of your home generates electricity from light -- electricity that can be used to power the appliances and equipment on the inside.

A team of researchers at the University of Notre Dame has made a major advance toward this vision by creating an inexpensive "solar paint" that uses semiconducting nanoparticles to produce energy.

"We want to do something transformative, to move beyond current silicon-based solar technology," says Prashant Kamat, John A. Zahm Professor of Science in Chemistry and Biochemistry and an investigator in Notre Dame's Center for Nano Science and Technology (NDnano), who leads the research.

"By incorporating power-producing nanoparticles, called quantum dots, into a spreadable compound, we've made a one-coat solar paint that can be applied to any conductive surface without special equipment."

The team's search for the new material, described in the journal ACS Nano, centered on nano-sized particles of titanium dioxide, which were coated with either cadmium sulfide or cadmium selenide. The particles were then suspended in a water-alcohol mixture to create a paste.

When the paste was brushed onto a transparent conducting material and exposed to light, it created electricity.

"The best light-to-energy conversion efficiency we've reached so far is 1 percent, which is well behind the usual 10 to 15 percent efficiency of commercial silicon solar cells," explains Kamat.

"But this paint can be made cheaply and in large quantities. If we can improve the efficiency somewhat, we may be able to make a real difference in meeting energy needs in the future."

"That's why we've christened the new paint, Sun-Believable," he adds.

FAIL! Gingrich, Perry, Bachmann, Huntsman and Santorum FAILED to get 10000 signatures to be in Virginia Primary! ONLY PAUL and Romney in Primary

This is just too good and funny!

Gingrich, Bachmann, Huntsman, Santorum and Perry could not come up with 10,000 signatures to be in the Virginia Primary for their names to be on the ballot.

But Paul and Romney did get the 10,000 signatures needed.

Fox news reported about Gingrich and Perry.


After verification, RPV has determined that Newt Gingrich did not submit required 10k signatures and has not qualified for the VA primary," the Republican Party of Virginia announced early Saturday on its Twitter website.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry also fell short of the 10,000 signatures of registered voters required for a candidate's name to be on the primary ballot, but former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Rep. Ron Paul will be on the ballot.

Cash Mobs - Helping Local Businesses

 Norman Cash Mob Makes The Journal Record

Brianna Bailey is a reporter with The Journal Record newspaper and was the first reporter to cover Norman Cash Mob. Many thanks to Ms. Bailey for reporting on the important topic of shopping locally-owned small businesses and the power of cash mob!  We are including the text of her piece here since it costs money to view the article online.
An Offer They Can’t Refuse

NORMAN – Armed with smartphones and $20 bills, groups calling themselves cash mobs are popping up around the country to support small, locally owned retailers in their communities.
Norman resident Marilyn Koop took to Twitter and Facebook to organize local, mob-style shopping expeditions after hearing a news story on NPR about the original cash mob in Ohio.
“The appeal for me was the direct, immediate and tangible effect it could have for a local business,” Koop said, “so I decided I am just going to do this.”
The idea behind the cash mob is simple: A time and address of a local business is announced to members of the group via Twitter and Facebook. The cash mob then shows up at the business en masse. Members spend at least $20 each. The group then celebrates a successful mob over a drink at another locally owned business.
Koop said she hopes that people in other communities across Oklahoma will start their own cash mobs.
“Whether you live in a town of 500 people or 1 million, there are local businesses that people can support,” she said.
Koop was one of several people from across the country who have contacted Cleveland Cash Mob organizer Andrew Samtoy over the past month to ask him about organizing similar events in their own communities. Samtoy, a Cleveland attorney, came up with the idea during a meeting of a local club for young professionals.
The concept has since spread rapidly across the country – even to Canada and England – since Samtoy organized the first Cleveland Cash Mob event about a month ago.
“I thought the first one would be a success if one person who wasn’t one of my friends showed up,” he said.
Samtoy is tracking cash mob groups forming everywhere from Oakland, Calif.; Boston; Muskegon, Mich.; Calgary, Alberta; and London. He said he’s lost track of all of the cash mobs that have formed.
“It’s an idea that seems to have resonated with people,” he said.
The Norman Cash Mob had its first gathering Dec. 1 at the Wild Hare Beadery, a locally owned bead and vintage clothing shop at 319 White St. in Norman’s Campus Corner district. The group has another gathering planned at 6:30 p.m. Friday at another, yet-to-be announced local business in Norman.
About 25 people showed up at the first Norman Cash Mob and spent about $1,000 at the Wild Hare.
Sales from the cash mob helped Wild Hare owner Reese Truesdell make his rent payment for the month, he said. Massive after-Thanksgiving sales by big-box store companies like Wal-Mart siphon off much of the holiday shopping business for Truesdell and other small retailers, he said. Business has been particularly slow at the Wild Hare over the past year. He blamed the downturn on uncertainty in the economy.
“It’s really disheartening to see your day-after-Thanksgiving sales go out the window,” Truesdell said. “The cash mob really boosted our spirits and gave us something to pay our bills and reinvest into the store, instead of just trying to scrape by.”

Golden State - Bombs (The Ron Paul Song)

5.8 magnitude earthquake hits New Zealand

english.cntv.cn

A 5.8 magnitude earthquake has hit New Zealand's South Island city of Christchurch. The New Zealand government geological agency said the shaking began just before 2pm local time, 20 km northeast of Lyttelton. People evacuated buildings and have been the assessing the damage.
The quake lasted for about 20 seconds, and was followed by a swarm of aftershocks. Residents covered their mouths as falling rocks created heavy dust in the city’s air.
On the east side, liquefaction caused water and mud to bubble to the surface, flooding the streets. Christchurch Airport was evacuated, causing many flights to be cancelled or delayed.

A 5.8 magnitude earthquake has hit New Zealand's South Island city of Christchurch.
Jasmine Buchanan, pregnant mother said "It was just horrible. Yeah, I’m waiting for my mum. I have no idea where she is. I spoke to her over, probably, half an hour ago, and now she’s still not here."
Shopping malls across the city were also evacuated on what was one of the busiest shopping days of the season.
Geonet warned more earthquakes are likely to hit the city, and says recent tremours are interrelated.
Ken Gledhill, Head of Geohazards Monitoring, Geonet said "This whole sequence was kicked off by the September 2010 event, which changed the earth under our feet in Christchurch. And this series of earthquakes is a result of that, including the February and June one. This is almost like a re-run of the June one."

A 5.8 magnitude earthquake has hit New Zealand's South Island city of Christchurch.
In September last year, Christchurch experienced a 7.0 magnitude earthquake, causing around 25 billion NZ dollars, or $19 billion US dollars worth of damage.
Six months later, 6.3 earthquake struck the Canterbury region in New Zealand’s South Island, killing more than 180 people. It was marked worst natural disaster in the country since 1931.
Many residents suffered when previous quakes’ liquefaction caused mud and water to flood their homes.
Residents will wait for the mud to dry, before cleaning it up for a third time.

Upon Release of Martial Law Documents - The Plan For America’s Destruction Becomes Apparent

Saman Mohammadi
The Excavator
Friday, December 23, 2011
The top news story of 2011 is not the assassination of Osama Bin Laden (a CIA psyop), but the advancement of the Martial Law agenda in America under the public radar.

On Wednesday, December 21, Infowars.com published a brand new Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) document dated November 18, 2011, that “that show military involvement in a FEMA-led takeover within the United States under partially-classified Continuity of Government (COG) plans,” and designate “the American people as ‘enemies’ under a live military tracking system known as Blue Force Situational Awareness (BFSA).”
The FEMA document, appearing under the headline “National Continuity Programs (NCP) Program and Mission Support Services (PAMSS),” ask contractors to assist FEMA in national emergencies. But don’t let the bureaucratic language fool you. This is really a Martial Law document. FEMA is not interested in emergency preparedness, but in establishing a military dictatorship in the United States.
Ordinary Americans are classified as the enemy in this FEMA document, and similar Martial Law documents, such as this one from Halliburton/KBR that Infowars.com published on Tuesday, December 6, 2011. The militaristic language that appears in these Martial Law documents, and in the draconian NDAA bill that the treacherous Congress passed last week, suggests that the hijacked U.S. government desires that there be insurgents and domestic terrorists in the United States.
The traitors in Washington need enemies, both foreign and domestic, in order for the politically and morally bankrupt National Security State to remain relevant and powerful in American society. This is a militarist and secret system that is led by the most evil personalities in the 21st century who create fake enemies (Al-Qaeda) and stage false flag terrorist attacks (9/11) just to remain in power. The word restraint does not exist in their vocabulary.
The day will come when the traitors in Washington, led by President Obama, will issue orders to the military and police to fire on Americans and enforce Martial Law. At that point, even the most blind and ignorant people will probably come to the obvious conclusion that it is not Al-Qaeda who desires the destruction of America, but the hijacked and treasonous U.S. government.
Much like in Iraq and other occupied countries, the hijacked U.S. government is reaching out to private contractors like KBR to help the U.S. military and Homeland Security implement Martial Law.
  • A d v e r t i s e m e n t
Government thugs and private contractors will be used to control the population in critical areas of the country after the coming economic collapse, as well as to contain and eliminate domestic threats, meaning any American citizen who does not want a hijacked military and blood-soaked mercenaries occupying America.
The idea that America will come under military occupation sounds foreign, but it shouldn’t, because the dark road that was taken by the murderous thieves in Washington after 9/11 would eventually lead to such a crisis.
What is written down in FEMA papers and similar Martial Law documents must be put into a larger political and historical context. America’s political system did not suddenly transform into a tyrannical beast overnight.
The rise of the shadow state, and its evil twin brother, the police state, has been decades in the making. The culture of the police has been so dramatically altered during this time that for many brainwashed police officers the implementation of Martial Law is a natural and necessary response to emergencies and crises.
After three decades of a traumatic war on drugs, military rhetoric comes naturally to hardened police officers, who don’t see themselves as protectors of the law and the public but as warriors of the state fighting terrorists, criminals, protesters, and drug dealers.
All of these threats, by the way, are invented and exaggerated. If the war on drugs and the war on terror are ended, the warriors of the state will be forced to redefine their identity and occupation because without endless wars to be fought and without enemies to be killed then there is no use for a warrior class.
And society doesn’t really need a warrior class. Our common interests and our democratic values are not threatened by “terrorists,” but by an international oligarchy. Police officers and military men need to grasp this reality. And they also need to realize that by blindly accepting a state of war, and viewing the American population as the enemy, they – the warriors of the state – become the real enemies of the public and the rule of law. But the biggest enemies are the philosophical masters who stand above the brainwashed warriors and define their goals as noble and heroic, but direct their will towards evil ends.
If the facts were known, Martial Law in America, and North America, would be defeated before it is even implemented. A military dictatorship won’t last for long if enough people speak up and fight back. We have the numbers, the truth, and the bravery to reclaim freedom for future generations to live happily and prosper in this new century. The traitors and terrorists in Washington are not on the right side of history. They are cowards to be defeated, not giants to be feared.
And the truth is they are scared and ashamed, that’s why they do everything in secret. The shameful FEMA document was posted on a government website called FBO.gov, but was immediately taken down after radio host Alex Jones alerted his listeners to the existence of the document and discussed its broader significance. This shows that the hijacked U.S. government is controlled by very frightened and pathetic people who know they are crossing a red line by quietly setting up a military dictatorship in America.
Aaron Dykes explained why the government’s censorship of the document is unwarranted in his article, “Government censors document revealing plans to wage war on Americans”:
“The government-linked document we posted was marked ‘Source Selection Sensitive’ but not considered classified. Further, it was listed publicly on a government website that was soliciting bids for government contracts. However, despite its public classification, it contains information that clearly is NOT intended to gain wide publicity.”
This document does not tell us anything new. We’ve known for years that there is a conspiracy to destroy America and other Western nations through an engineered economic collapse and a false global war of terror that has been used to legitimize the destruction of basic human rights in the West.
Some facts can no longer be denied and dismissed. It is not a theory that is America is being destroyed by the traitors and terrorists in Washington. It is reality. It is self-evident.
Fortunately, the hijacked U.S. government has no public credibility. Its systematic policy of deceit and fraud, its destruction of the Constitution, and its illegal implementation of Martial Law will backfire severely.
American law professor and lawyer Jonathan Turley said on C-SPAN on December 19, 2011 that most Americans do not fear any foreign threats like Al-Qaeda, but their own unresponsive and out-of-control government:
“We’ve had three polls in the last year and they all show the same thing. The American people say that they are more afraid of the government than they are outside forces like terrorists. So there’s this disconnect. The majority of Americans are actually very concerned about the loss of rights, but Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, can’t move harder against privacy. And this is part of the cynical calculation. I think that President Obama made this calculation early on and decided that no one would be to the right of him on terrorism and national security, and he has taken the Democratic party with him on that.
So you have this remarkable disconnect, where the majority of citizens are going, ‘We’re really concerned about this. We are fearful of our own government,’ and yet it’s just not translating on the hill.”
In the near future, Washington may not even exist. The wild wolves of the new world order in the shadow CIA, and their partners in crime in the shadow Mossad, could burn down Washington D.C. in a false flag attack and relocate in Denver, Colorado.
They have already turned the heart of New York City into a pit of ashes, so what’s stopping them from doing the same to the heart of the capital in the heart of the present global order, Washington D.C?
These psychopathic maniacs are capable of carrying out the greatest acts of evil and destruction in human history. Loss of life on an epic scale means nothing to them. They desire mass death and mass destruction.
In their eyes, they believe they must destroy the basic foundations of America, from the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to the grand architecture of Washington D.C., before they can move on and establish their fascist global dictatorship upon the ruins of the old age.
If such a dark and scary scenario unfolds, if Washington is destroyed by the lawless power elite, then Colorado will become America’s green zone, out of which America’s shadow terrorist state will wage war against a politically awakened and rebellious population.

Race On To Cover Up Details Of Lab Created Killer Bird Flu

Genetically altered H5N1 strain can spread between mammals
Steve Watson
Infowars.com
December 20, 2011
Bird Flu
A highly contagious mutant strain of H5N1 bird flu that can be transmitted between mammals has been deliberately created at Rotterdam’s Erasmus Medical Centre, the London Independent reports.
Now plans to publish details of how the deadly virus was created in the lab are being castigated by government officials and health experts.
The findings were scheduled to be published in the US journal Science, however, officials at the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity have demanded that they be allowed to screen the details first.
“The worst-case scenario here is worse than anything you can imagine,” an anonymous senior US government advisor told the Independent.
“The fear is that if you create something this deadly and it goes into a global pandemic, the mortality and cost to the world could be massive.”
In comments to The London Telegraph, EU Health Commissioner John Dalli said that the Dutch government has assured him the virus is being kept secure.
  • A d v e r t i s e m e n t
“The Dutch authorities confirmed that the virus itself is stored in a very secured way and that the necessary permits were given and that the researchers are bound by a code of conduct,” Mr Dalli said.
“One of the issues … is to ensure that any information coming from this research is well controlled and without sensitive details about mutation being given,” he added.
The ultimate fear is that the virus could escape the lab, or be recreated somewhere else for nefarious purposes, such as a deadly bioweapon.
H5N1 bird flu has proven fatal in 60 per cent of human cases. However, only a small amount of people have died from the disease because it has not yet been transmitted between humans.
Ron Fouchier, the virologist who led the research team that created the mutant flu strain, said that the study had concluded that transmission of the H5N1 virus was possible between humans “and can be carried out more easily than we thought.”
“In a laboratory, it was possible to change the H5N1 into a virus … that can easily be spread through the air. This process (mutation) could also happen naturally,” Fouchier said.
Conceding that it is “probably one of the most dangerous viruses you can make”, Fouchier has said that his work is “really, really stupid,” but ultimately useful for the development of vaccines.
In 2009, Infowars reported extensively on the fact that vaccines contaminated with the deadly avian flu virus were distributed to 18 countries by the American Pharmaceutical company Baxter.
Baxter mixed the deadly H5N1 virus with a mix of H3N2 seasonal flu viruses. The H5N1 virus on its own is less airborne and more restricted in the ease with which it can spread. However, when combined with seasonal flu viruses, which are super-airborne and easily spread, the effect is a potent, super-airbone, super deadly biological weapon.
While some dismissed the incident as criminal negligence, others contended it may have been part of a conspiracy to provoke a pandemic.

North Koreans weeping hysterically over the death of Kim Jong-il

The Rise of Ron Paul Proves That The Establishment Media is Not All Powerful

Saman Mohammadi
Full Article at The Excavator
Monday, December 19, 2011


In 2011, “the person who controls communications” can be a blogger with a million readers, a multinational CEO with newspapers in several countries, or an online news anchor with a million dollar studio.


Believe it or not, bloggers and online journalists can change the world. We are not laboring in vain. We are helping to establish a much-needed political dialogue between the West and the East which can lead to a genuine and just peace in the future.

Peace in the Middle East cannot be achieved without dialogue and debate.

Online civil society has a great and historic responsibility to use the power of a free press to create understanding and peace, because the establishment media has used its power to create misunderstanding and war.

Bloggers and online news anchors are undermining the power of anti-democratic elites from America to the Middle East by opening up the worldwide debate about the 9/11 attacks and the global war on terror. They are giving free speech a chance.

In America, silencing patriots like Ron Paul is a lot harder than it was in 1988, when he first ran for President, because of the Internet Revolution. Dr. Paul’s rise would not have been possible without blogs, alternative news sites, message boards, YouTube, online fundraising drives, and online news anchors like Alex Jones who spread the word.

The editors of The Daily Bell have written consistently about the transformative power of the Internet and how it will change national and global politics. In November, they wrote:

The power elite virtually controlled the flow of information in the 20th century and in the 21st they’ve lost this ability. They have lost their information monopoly thanks to the Internet. This is a devastating blow.

The response by dictatorships to the Internet has been the same: Kill it,before it destroys us.

Dictatorships in Washington, Beijing, Tehran, Tel Aviv, and London are losing credibility with their people and their solutions are tyranny at home and war abroad.

They’re scared because they know the game is up. Slavery and death is all they know, and all they can offer.

As the liberating power of the Internet continues to manifest itself, citizens around the world will be offered new narratives of history, and alternative futures.

The world is wide open. We are entering a period of flux in which these dark dictatorships will either evolve or collapse. So far, it appears they will all go the way of the Soviet Union.

Etta James - Sunday Kind Of Love



Etta James Is Terminally Ill
Compiled by JAMES C. McKINLEY Jr.
Published: December 18, 2011
nytimes.com

Etta James, the seminal R&B singer, is terminally ill, according to her doctor, Elaine James (who is not related to Etta James). Dr. James told The Press-Enterprise in Riverside, Calif., that family members were told two weeks ago that Ms. James’s chronic leukemia could not be cured. “I am Southern and Christian and would just ask for the prayers of her fans and friends,” Dr. James said. “They know she’s been sick, but not how sick.” Etta James, 73, has been among the most celebrated American blues singers for decades, recording enduring hits like “At Last,” “Tell Mama” and “I’d Rather Go Blind.” She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. Her career was also influenced by drug addiction, troubled love relationships and health and legal problems. In 2010 she was hospitalized for a staph infection, and it became public that she was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, and that she had been treated for dependence on painkillers. Dr. James has cared for Etta James, above, at her home in Riverside since March 2010, and she made the statements last week outside a hearing over control of Ms. James’s $1 million estate. Donato James, her son, has been fighting in court with her husband, Artis Mills, over who will be named the estate’s conservator.

KUHNER: Obama’s Watergate Officials cover up culpability for gun smuggling and murder

By Jeffrey T. Kuhner
The Washington Times

A year ago this week, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered. He died protecting his country from brutal Mexican gangsters. Two AK-47 assault rifles were found at his death site. We now know the horrifying truth: Agent Terry was killed by weapons that were part of an illegal Obama administration operation to smuggle arms to the dangerous drug cartels. He was a victim of his own government. This is not only a major scandal; it is a high crime that potentially reaches all the way to the White House, implicating senior officials. It is President Obama's Watergate.

Operation Fast and Furious was run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and overseen by the Justice Department. It started under the leadership of Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. Fast and Furious enabled straw gun purchases from licensed dealers in Arizona, in which more than 2,000 weapons were smuggled to Mexican drug kingpins. ATF claims it was seeking to track the weapons as part of a larger crackdown on the growing violence in the Southwest. Instead, ATF effectively has armed murderous gangs. About 300 Mexicans have been killed by Fast and Furious weapons. More than 1,400 guns remain lost. Agent Terry likely will not be the last U.S. casualty.

Mr. Holder insists he was unaware of what took place until after media reports of the scandal appeared in early 2011. This is false. Such a vast operation only could have occurred with the full knowledge and consent of senior administration officials. Massive gun-running and smuggling is not carried out by low-level ATF bureaucrats unless there is authorization from the top. There is a systematic cover-up.

Congressional Republicans, however, are beginning to shed light on the scandal. Led by Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Rep. Darrell Issa of California, a congressional probe is exposing the Justice Department's rampant criminality and deliberate stonewalling. Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer, who heads the department's criminal division, helped craft a February letter to Congress that denied ATF had ever walked guns into Mexico. Yet, under pressure from congressional investigators, the department later admitted that Mr. Breuer knew about ATF gun-smuggling as far back as April 2010. In other words, Mr. Breuer has been misleading Congress. He should resign - or be fired.

Instead, Mr. Holder tenaciously insists that Mr. Breuer will keep his job. He needs to keep his friends close and potential witnesses even closer
