Today, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an ardent gun control advocate, moved to politicize the monstrous school shooting in Connecticut, issuing the following statement:
With all the carnage from gun violence in our country, it’s still almost impossible to believe that a mass shooting in a kindergarten class could happen. It has come to that. Not even kindergarteners learning their A,B,Cs are safe. We heard after Columbine that it was too soon to talk about gun laws. We heard it after Virginia Tech. After Tucson and Aurora and Oak Creek. And now we are hearing it again. For every day we wait, 34 more people are murdered with guns. Today, many of them were five-year olds. President Obama rightly sent his heartfelt condolences to the families in Newtown. But the country needs him to send a bill to Congress to fix this problem. Calling for ‘meaningful action’ is not enough. We need immediate action. We have heard all the rhetoric before. What we have not seen is leadership – not from the White House and not from Congress. That must end today. This is a national tragedy and it demands a national response. My deepest sympathies are with the families of all those affected, and my determination to stop this madness is stronger than ever. Continue Reading
If you are waiting for the economic collapse, you’re too late – it’s already happened. And it’s TWCTM (Those Who Control the Money) who did it. They pulled the rug right out from under themselves. We are living in a world of complete economic fantasy, using numbers that are unfathomable, unconscionable, and un-repayable.
Those of you who already know this, bear with me for the sake of those who don’t, but here’s a quick primer on big-picture economics in the U.S.: Congress tells the Treasury that it needs some amount of money. The treasury asks the Federal Reserve Bank (“the Fed” – a privately held company, not a U.S. Government agency) to print/issue an amount of money. The Treasury issues Treasury Notes (a.k.a. T-Bills) to cover that amount of money and these Notes are sold to other countries who are, in effect, loaning us that money until the maturity date of the note. (Lately, though, other countries are less than enthusiastically buying up our T-bills. The biggest purchaser is now the Fed, themselves.)
That’s why it’s called a “Note” – it’s a loan. Every dollar in circulation since 1913 is a loan. On top of the principle, the Fed requires a payment of interest for this “service” they provide. The purchasers of the T-bills also collect an interest payment as motivation to loan us money. Who is ultimately responsible for the loans and interest for every penny used in the United States? YOU ARE. No matter what they do with the money, no matter in who’s pocket it winds up, YOU GET THE BILL. And don’t think the bill is paid by Income Taxes – that only pays a fraction of the interest due!
Why do you get the bill? Because each and every T-Bill is sold with “the full faith and credit of the American people”. That’s you, and everything you own. It’s not the U.S. Government (a private corporation), but the people who live within its borders. The government gets to order and spend the money any way they see fit (after all, you have given them permission to do so) but is not responsible to pay the debt – you are. Continue Reading
While millions of Americans were busy celebrating freedom from tyranny during the recent Independence Day festivities, Monsanto was actively trying to thwart that freedom with new attacks on health freedom. It turns out that the most evil corporation in the world has quietly attached riders to both the 2012 Farm Billand the 2013 Agriculture Appropriations Bill that would essentially force the federal government to approve GMOs at the request of biotechnology companies, and prohibit all safety reviews of GMOs from having any real impact on the GMO approval process.
The Alliance for Natural Health – USA (ANH-USA), the Organic Consumers Association (OCA), and several other health freedom advocacy groups have been actively drawing attention to these stealth attacks in recent days, and urging Americans to rise up and oppose them now before it is too late. If we fail to act now as a single, unified community devoted to health freedom, in other words, America’s agricultural future could literally end up being controlled entirely by the biotech industry, which will have full immunity from the law.
You can fight back now against these threats to food freedom by visiting:

NO UNCONSTITUTIONAL DETAINMENT OF AMERICANS
CONGRESS MUST NOT STRIP CITIZENS OF RIGHTS
URGENT: Congress PERSISTS in passing legislation surrendering liberty for empty promises of security! Now a new bill before Congress proposes federal authority to strip any American of their citizenship – and God-given rights – if they are merely suspected of a hostile attitude toward the state.
And our Constitution be damned? WE THE PEOPLE SAY NO!
CONGRESS: HEED OUR PETITIONS… RESTORE THE CONSTITUTION!
Pundits and politicians keep repeating the same mantra, “no rights for terrorists,” but ask yourself, who defines terrorist and why should that opinion strip any American of their God-given Constitutional rights? We have JUST SEEN how far the opinion of the Supreme Court can stray from the plain limits of the Constitution! What happens when the government decides the enemy is YOU?
Senators Joe Liebermann and Scott Brown are joined by Representatives Dent, Altmier and Latta in proposing the “Enemy Expatriation Act.” This proposed act, (HR 3166 and SB 1698), seeks to amend the Immigration and Nationality Act, (8 USC 1481), to add the following text “To add engaging in or supporting hostilities against the United States to the list of acts for which United States nationals would lose their nationality.”
To many, this language seems benign. First of all, the use of the word “national” seems to give the impression that the proposed punishment would only apply to American citizens who were “nationalized,” i.e. not citizens by birth. However, when we examine the language of 8 USC 1481, we find the law defines a ‘national’ as “A person who is a national of the United States whether BY BIRTH or naturalization.” Continue Reading
Once again, the National Defense Authorization Act is used as a Trojan horse to unload on its people a dangerous threat.This time it is offered up in an amendment sponsored by Representative Thornberry from Texas and its called Dissemination of Information Abroad.This bill has also been referred to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs as a separate bill titled HR 5736, The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012.This bill will overturn a prohibition that has been in place since 1948 and make it possible for the US Government to fund the dissemination of propaganda to influence American citizens.
Immediately, the question comes up, why should we care?Isn’t domestic propaganda something that this administration has been engaging since 2008?Would any of us disagree that the mainstream media is a tool of this administration?Read on and see just why there should be national outrage over this bill.

The latest assault on the American public and formerly free states of the United States of America, has been launched. Obama constructed and issued the Executive Order referred to as National Defense Resources Preparedness. Under this Order, [National Defense] is clearly laid out. It is clear that the federal government, all of itsunlawful agencies, agents, private corporations operating in fraud as “public service” agencies, our military, all of our resources, our labor, our skills, energy, commerce, production, agriculture etc., are now focused on defending the federal government……..from us.
This order is the fulfillment of Obama’s “We can’t wait” strategy wherein Obama openly declared his intention to by-pass congress (essentially informing them they were no longer needed) and to enact tyrannical and dictatorial mandates by circumventing congress and enlarging the powers and enforcement capabilites of unlawfully constructed federal corporations owned by the parent corporation: The United States a.k.a. The United States of America.
In reference to this Order, Obama, just as Bush2 did, and every president going back to Lincoln, referred to himself as the Chief Executive as in “corporate executive”, not as the elected President of the United States. As a mere president, he is only empowered to enforce the law. But as the Chief Executive of the Corporation, he can hire and fire (he essentially just fired all of congress) change the rules and regulations and use Executive Orders to write laws all by himself.
We can’t wait either, Mr. Obama
We can’t wait to see what the states, including governors, do when they realize that Council of Governors appointed to supersede state and local governments and set up to facilitate the 10 United Nations Regions, flex’s its muscle. What do you suppose their reaction will be and that of the citizens of those states?
We just cannot wait to see what happens when the general public comes to the realization that when Panetta and Dempsey informed the Senate that they take their orders from the United nations and NATO, not from congress, they were essentially declaring that they were serving a foreign government not only with your encouragement, but also your tacit approval.

“From time to time in the history of science, situations have arisen in which a problem of ultimately enormous importance went begging for adequate attention simply because that problem appeared to involve phenomena so far outside the current bounds of scientific knowledge that it was not even regarded as a legitimate subject of serious scientific concern. That is precisely the situation in which the UFO problem now lies. One of the principal results of my own recent intensive study of the UFO enigma is this: I have become convinced that the scientific community, not only in this country but throughout the world, has been casually ignoring as nonsense a matter of extraordinary scientific importance.” 1
It’s bad enough that drones have been welcomed by Congress into American skies, as well as already being used around the planet to conduct surveillance and bomb select countries from remote locations.
The latest proposed addition to the drone spy program is even creepier: disposable computers with software programs funded by DARPA to be dropped as self-destructing “bombs.”
Now, not only will drones surveil and hack from above, but they will drop a payload to interface with hidden computers on the ground, completely integrating a full-spectrum data transmission and control grid.
The name of the project, as well as its announcement at a hacker convention called ShmooCon, had this non-techie convinced that it had to be satire or a hoax, but the project has also been noted by Forbes and Wired, which only serves to illustrate how far off into our dystopian technocratic police state we have wandered. It seems that we are being acclimated to how funny and cool our futuristic spy toys have become. This fun has culminated in the planned dropping of F-BOMBS (Falling or Ballistically-launched Object that Makes Backdoors) to combat “Bad Men With Guns.”
The F-BOMB introduces the idea of disposable surveillance as a guard against forensic evaluation and the ability to track the source of the drop. Creator, Brendan O’Connor, has received DARPA funding to implement a software package into his nearly non-traceable surveillance hardware as cheaply as possible with easy-to-obtain components.

Congress is poised to give final passage to legislation that would give a big boost to domestic unmanned aerial surveillance — aka “drones.”
As we explained in our recent report, drone technology is advancing by leaps and bounds, and there is a lot of pent-up demand for them within the law enforcement community. But, domestic deployment of unmanned aircraft for surveillance purposes has largely been blocked so far by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which is rightly concerned about the safety effects of filling our skies with flying robots (which crash significantly more often than manned aircraft).
As we also explained in our report, the FAA is under pressure to loosen the reins and permit broader deployment of drones by government agencies.
One result of that pressure is this legislation (H.R. 658 — see conference report for more details), which authorizes appropriations for the FAA through fiscal 2014. Unfortunately, nothing in the bill would address the very serious privacy issues raised by drone aircraft. This bill would push the nation willy-nilly toward an era of aerial surveillance without any steps to protect the traditional privacy that Americans have always enjoyed and expected.
Congress — and to the extent possible, the FAA — need to impose some rules (such as those we proposed in our report) to protect Americans’ privacy from the inevitable invasions that this technology will otherwise lead to. We don’t want to wonder, every time we step out our front door, whether some eye in the sky is watching our every move.
On Friday, the House gave final passage to the legislation. House approval came on a quitepartisan vote, with most Republicans in favor and most Democrats opposing. The Senate is scheduled to take up the bill later today. Continue Reading

First, Congress considered the National Defense Authorization Act, sections of which gave the President the authority to use the military to arrest and indefinitely detain Americans without trial or charge. The language was revised because of strong condemnation from the American people. But now a new bill has emerged that poses yet another threat to the American citizenry.
Congress is considering HR 3166 and S. 1698 also known as the Enemy Expatriation Act, sponsored by Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Charles Dent (R-PA). This bill would give the US government the power to strip Americans of their citizenship without being convicted of being “hostile” against the United States. In other words, you can be stripped of your nationality for “engaging in, or purposefully and materially supporting, hostilities against the United States.” Legally, the term “hostilities” means any conflict subject to the laws of war but considering the fact that the War on Terror is a little ambiguous and encompassing, any action could be labeled as supporting terrorism. Since the Occupy movement began, conservatives have been trying to paint the protesters as terrorists. Continue Reading

(NWR) – It would seem that our federally elected politicians in the U.S., have not been financially afflicted, much like the bulk of Americans since the economic downturn of 2008. No big surprise there, perhaps, but let us ordinary citizens hopefully realize that if things keep going as they are, these very same Washington D.C. officials will be telling us all that we need to make sacrifices for the greater good of the country. They will suggest such things as cutting food stamps for the poor or struggling, medical care for the elderly, etc., and likely seek to introduce a variety of new austerity measures, depending on how poorly our economy performs.
Figures from The New Center for Responsive Politics (a respectable, non-profit research group located on-line at opensecrects.org) paint a revealing picture of just how well politicians are doing compared to just about everyone else in America. One glaring example is that of Representative Ed Pastor (D. AR), who upon entering Congress In 1991 with somewhere around $100,000 in savings; being roughly about the same amount that he was indebted to banks or credit card companies, etc., has somehow since become just one more within the crowd of 250 millionaire members of Congress.

This place is pretending to hold elections according to a pre-arranged schedule, but between the last election and today the country itself has literally disappeared. The Congress & the Dictator have passed and signed into law a bill that officially ends the relationship between the Constitution and the public. Therefore no one can argue for or against anything because nothing is legal anymore because without a constitution there is no basis for any of the laws upon which this nation was supposed to exist. So, among other things these selections are an outright fraud upon the public that remains asleep, when the subject has anything to do with politics. NO ONE who is running for any office today is a legitimate candidate because all of those offices that are being voted on, no longer exist: Anyone that believes that nothing has changed is dead wrong. Everything has changed especially when it comes to anything political!
The United States Government had its last day on December 31, 2011. Since January 1, 2012 the US has is now leading the global Axis of Evil by a wide margin. All law-enforcement badges have become meaningless because “law enforcement officials’ no longer are charged with protecting the public: They exist only to harass and intimidate all possible Enemies of the State, which the government has now officially labeled every man woman or child living here to be guilty of.
The US military has taken over from the police and all the other Alphabet-soup cadre of “officials” that once had something to do with investigations or prosecutions of criminals. All of that has been done away with now because we no longer need evidence to arrest people and make them disappear forever all that is required is an uncorroborated suspicion, followed by a military arrest and after that everything goes dark, for the “suspected individuals.” Apparently it has yet to be decided what is to be done with all these ridiculous cops and agents that are no longer needed now that the military has officially been put “in-Charge” in flagrant violation of Posse Comitatus that since the Civil War has kept US troops out of the lives of civilians. But Caesar has put an end to all of that! (1) Continue Reading
