Ron Paul: We Are Enabling A Future American Dictatorship

May 31, 2011
By Steve Watson

2012 Presidential candidate Ron Paul has warned that a lack of oversight from Congress, the media and the American people is enabling the rise of a dictatorship in the US.

The Congressman issued the warning via his weekly Texas Straight Talk column, noting that in light of current attitudes within the executive and legislative branches, “it would be incredibly naïve to think a dictator could not or would not wrest power in this country” at some point in the future.

“Americans who are not alarmed by all of this are either not paying close attention, or are too trusting of current government officials to be concerned.” Paul writes,

“Our Presidents can now, on their own: order assassinations, including American citizens; operate secret military tribunals; engage in torture; enforce indefinite imprisonment without due process; order searches and seizures without proper warrants, gutting the 4th Amendment; ignore the 60 day rule for reporting to the Congress the nature of any military operations as required by the War Power Resolution; continue the Patriot Act abuses without oversight; wage war at will; and treat all Americans as suspected terrorists at airports with TSA groping and nude x-rays. ” The Congressman urges.  Read More

America Will Not Survive Without Alternative Markets

"The problem, of course, is in educating the populace on the necessity of alternative markets."

 May 27, 2011
By Brandon Smith

Commerce is the lifeblood of a nation. Without the free flow of trade, without financial adaptability, without intuitive markets driven by the natural currents of supply, demand, and innovation, cultures stagnate, countries whither, and one generation after the next finds itself deeper in the somber doldrums of economic disintegration. In an environment of transparency, honesty, and the absence of monopoly (government or corporate), on the rare occasions in history that these conditions are actually present in one place at one time, we often see an explosion of prosperity and true wealth creation. When local, decentralized markets are given precedence over subversive elitist leviathans like mercantilism or globalism, a wellspring of abundance bursts forward. Free people, building true free markets that serve the specific needs of individual communities and insulating the overall economy from systemic collapse; this has always been the wave of the future. Not “integration”, “harmonization”, or some fantastical nonsensical “global village” administrated by a faceless unaccountable transnational entity like the IMF, infested with sociopathic maid raping euro-trolls.

Ron Paul House Floor Speech: Republic Almost Completely Dead

May 27, 2011

The Defense Authorization Act or H.R. 1540, aka The Forever War Act of 2012, was overwhelmingly approved by the House of Representatives earlier today on a vote of 322 to 96.

The Senate will now vote on its own version and then the two bills will need to be reconciled before going to Barry Obama for his signature into law.

The law authorizes the United States to use military force anywhere it says there are terrorists, including within the borders of our own country. It represents the largest hand-over of unchecked war authority from Congress to the executive branch in modern American history.

The founders were seriously opposed to handing this much power over to executive, fearing tyranny. If enacted into law, this provision will make Obama a dictator who can wage war without the consent of the American people.

Utah To Follow Texas Lead In TSA Grope-down Revolt

"Should several more states follow the same example set by Texas, the TSA and the Justice Department will have a major job on their hands threatening half the country with no fly zones and convincing Americans that it is the prudent course of action."

May 27, 2011
By Steve Watson

Utah looks likely to be the next state to follow the example set by Texas in attempting to make TSA grope downs a felony.

Rep. Carl Wimmer, R-Herriman has introduced a bill into the Utah House of Representatives that would ensure TSA agents would have to abide by the same Fourth Amendment limits that police do when performing searches on Americans.

“It is a work in progress,” Wimmer told the Utah Daily Herald. “What it would do right now is simply say TSA agents are not exempt from the requirement of reasonable suspicion or probable cause to pat down a citizen.”

Like the bill that was recently unanimously passed in the Texas House, Wimmer’s legislation would make it an offense to touch the private parts of the person on the receiving end of the pat-down.  Read More

The Incredible Sucking Power of Tornadoes

"Tornadoes have shaken the nation, causing destruction in a matter of moments."

May 27, 2011

By Annie Vaughan

Survivors of the series of deadly tornadoes that have swept the U.S. in the past week have had first-hand experience with their shocking and intense power.

Indeed, tornadoes are so rapid and forceful the body may not have time to adjust to the pressure drop, experts told FoxNews.com. Within their vortex, a vacuum effect occurs -- and the negative pressure and upward winds can literally suck the air right out of people's lungs.

“It would be impossible for the person to draw in breath -- and if this lasts longer than three minutes it could prove fatal,” pulmonary specialist Dr. Len Horovitz told FoxNews.com.

Other dramatic tales of death and survival bear witness to the tornado's powerful might.  Read More

Global Economic Rebound Weakens on Quake, Oil Price, European Debt Crisis

May 27, 2011

The world economy is losing strength halfway through the year as high oil prices and fallout from Japan’s natural disaster and Europe’s debt woes take their toll.

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. now expects global economic growth of 4.3 percent in 2011, compared with its 4.8 percent estimate in mid-April, while UBS AG has cut its projection to 3.6 percent from 3.9 percent in January. Downside risks also include a shift to tighter monetary policy in emerging markets.

“The world economy has entered a softer patch with the incoming growth data mostly disappointing,” said Andrew Cates, an economist at UBS in Singapore. “We suspect this soft patch will endure for longer.”

Data this week backed that outlook as reports showed Chinese manufacturing expanding at the slowest pace in 10 months, orders for U.S. durable goods dropping the most since October and confidence among European executive and consumers sliding for the third straight month. Investors are tuning in, pushing the MSCI World Index of stocks in advanced economies down 4.2 percent this month.  Read More

Oath Keepers To Rally Over SWAT Shooting Of Marine Veteran


May 26, 2011

By Brandon Smith

Tucson, Arizona, May 30, 2011 March and rally from 9am to 3pm, followed by formal indoor meeting with speeches and additional memorial ceremonies into evening.

This is an urgent call-out to all Oath Keepers, all veterans, all patriotic police officers, all Americans who cherish our liberty and our Constitution, and to all liberty leaders and patriotic organizations to join us in Tucson, Arizona this Memorial Day, May 30, 2011 to take a stand in defense of our Constitution, which our war dead fought to defend, and to take a stand against the egregious policy of using SWAT teams to serve search warrants on veterans and gun owners with no violent criminal history.

As you may know, on May 5, 2011, a young 26 year old Marine veteran who had survived two tours in Iraq, and father of two, Jose Guereña, was killed in a SWAT raid in Tucson, Arizona (see below news articles for details). At approximately 9:30 am, two hours after he hit the rack after working a twelve hour graveyard shift at an Arizona mine, his wife woke him by yelling that there were men with guns outside (she had seen a man outside the window pointing a gun at her). He told her to take their four year old son and hide in a closet, grabbed his AR-15, and stepped out into the hallway of his home just as his front door was
battered in.  Read More

US Police State Begins Exponential Expansion


May 26, 2011

By Sher Zieve

The recent Indiana Supreme Court ruling against the US Constitution, rendering the Fourth Amendment null and void in that State by patently leftist activist judges, is only the latest unconscionable step in a series of actions designed to unravel each and every portion of the Bill of Rights. It is also one of the latest actions designed to compliment and enhance the already jack-booted Obama police State march into our States, our cities and homes. Soon US citizens will have no rights–whatsoever–unless they are doled out by the USSA Meneur or Commandant du jour. Currently, that is the Obama/Soros syndicate which is now acting as the US‘ Dictator-and-agitator-in-chief.  Read More

Tyranny in Texas

"Hundreds rally at Texas state capitol building to protest TSA threat to blockade Texas airports"

May 26. 2011

By Mike Ranger

The revolution against government tyranny is underway in Texas, led by Alex Jones and hundreds of protestors who stormed the state capitol building today in protest over TSA tyranny. Late yesterday, the TSA threatened to turn Texas into a no-fly zone if it passed a law criminalizing inappropriate TSA pat-downs (i.e. sexual molestation by government thugs). (http://www.naturalnews.com/032514_T...) This threat of economic terrorism against Texas resulted in an immediate and powerful backlash by members of the public across the entire political spectrum.

At the State Capitol in Austin, hundreds of protestors tried to storm the public gallery but were stopped by state troopers who denied them entry. With chants of "Cowards!" and "Treason!" the group had earlier made its way into the House Chamber and protested there, then it continued on to the Senate chamber. (http://www.statesman.com/blogs/cont...)

Texas state senators pulled the bill from consideration after support for it collapsed in the wake of the TSA's thinly-veiled threat of economic terrorism: If Texas passed the bill, the TSA warned, it would conduct an economic blockade and deny all air travel to and from Texas airports.

This act has turned the TSA into an occupying army, reports Paul Joseph Watson at InfoWars.com (http://www.infowars.com/texans-take...). "If allowed to continue this practice, federal government goons will be sticking their hands down the pants of citizens at malls, hotels, theme parks, and on streets across America," he writes.  Read More

The direction of totalitarianism...Our world is literally becoming a prison grid.

"Signs That The Entire World Is Being Transformed Into A Futuristic Big Brother Prison Grid"

May 26. 2011
The American Dream

Do you want your children and grandchildren to live in a futuristic "big brother" control grid where everything they do is watched, recorded, tracked and tightly controlled? Well, that is exactly where things are headed. We witnessed some really bad totalitarian regimes during the 20th century, but what is coming is going to be far more restrictive than any of the despots of the past ever dreamed was possible. Today, nearly every government on earth is tightening their grip on their citizens. Paranoia has become standard operating procedure all over the planet and nobody is to be trusted. Global politicians will give speeches about liberty and freedom even as they undermine them at every turn. There are very, very few nations on the planet where liberty and freedom are increasing. Instead, almost everywhere you turn the "control grid" is getting tighter. Governments don't want us gathering together and interacting with one another. Instead, they want us to work our tails off to support the system, they want us enslaved financially and constantly drowning in debt, and they want us addicted to television and other forms of entertainment. They want us as numb and docile as possible. Meanwhile, all over the globe they continue to construct a futuristic "big brother" control grid that will ensure that they will always be able to control us.

Sadly, this is not the plot to some post-apocalyptic science fiction movie.

This is really happening.  Read More

Gold & Silver Coins to Be Legal Currency in Utah

“We’re too far down the road to go back to the gold standard,” Galvez said. “This will move us toward an alternative currency.”

May 22, 2011
By Scott Baker

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah legislators want to see the dollar regain its former glory, back to the days when one could literally bank on it being “as good as gold.”

To make that point, they’ve turned it around, and made gold as good as cash. Utah became the first state in the country this month to legalize gold and silver coins as currency. The law also will exempt the sale of the coins from state capital gains taxes.

Craig Franco hopes to cash in on it with his Utah Gold and Silver Depository, and he thinks others will soon follow.

The idea is simple: Store your gold and silver coins in a vault, and Franco issues a debit-like card to make purchases backed by your holdings.

He plans to open for business June 1, likely the first of its kind in the country.

“Because we’re dealing with something so forward thinking, I expect a wait-and-see attitude,” Franco said. “Once the depository is executed and transactions can occur, then I think people will move into the marketplace.”

The idea was spawned by Republican state Rep. Brad Galvez, who sponsored the bill largely to serve as a protest against Federal Reserve monetary policy. Galvez says Americans are losing faith in the dollar. If you’re mad about government debt, ditch the cash. Spend your gold and silver, he says.  Read More

Question: What would President Cain offer the Palestinians to make peace?

May 22, 2011
Weazel Zippers

Answer: “Nothing.”

Filed under “The Cain Doctrine.”

To Watch Video

“Nothing, because I’m not convinced that the Palestinians are really interested in peace. If the Palestinians come to the table with Israel, with a genuine offer that the two of them can sit down and negotiate the United States would, in fact, try to facilitate that discussion. But if we look at history, it has been clear that the Palestinians have always wanted to push the Israelis, and push Israel, for more and more and more. I don’t agree with that.”

Beware the alpha romeos like Arnold Schwarzenegger

"Herald Sun: Alex Jones Was Right About Schwarzenegger’s Megalomania"

May 22, 2011
By Alan Howe
Herald Sun

It wasn’t that long ago that the deluded voters of California so loved their Governor – a womanising, bodybuilding actor, perfect qualifications for West Coast leadership – that 65 per cent of them supported him, and a number of influential Americans were calling for the US Constitution to be hurriedly changed so that Arnie might make a run for the White House.

One of them was his poor wife Maria Shriver. Part of the Kennedy dynasty, she might have known politics, but she didn’t know her man. When some Silicon Valley bigwigs started spending money on the campaign to have her husband for President, Shriver agreed. “Absolutely” there should be an amendment to clear the way for Schwarzenegger to run.

Syndicated radio host Alex Jones, once a Republican, saw things differently: “He’s a bully and a preening peacock who is totally power-mad,” he said. “For God’s sake, don’t let this megalomaniac become president.”

Jones was right. Shriver was wrong. And what a price she has paid – her children growing up in a house alongside their housemaid’s son, also Arnie’s offspring.

By now Shriver must know the absurdly ambitious Schwarzenegger has cunningly manipulated her, probably since they first met in 1977, their relationship starting, of course, when he was deeply involved with another.

Is the US Driving the World Towards World War III: Osama’s Alleged Compound. How Many SEALs Died?

"In America we have reached the point where anyone who tells the truth is dismissed as a “conspiracy theorist” and marginalized."

May 22, 2011
By Paul Craig Robert

In a sensational and explosive TV report, the Pakistani News Agency has provided a live interview with an eye witness to the US attack on the alleged compound of Osama bin Laden. The eye witness, Mohammad Bashir, describes the event as it unfolded. Of the three helicopters, “there was only one that landed the men and came back to pick them up, but as he [the helicopter] was picking them up, it blew away and caught fire.” The witness says that there were no survivors, just dead bodies and pieces of bodies everywhere. “We saw the helicopter burning, we saw the dead bodies, then everything was removed and now there is nothing.”

I always wondered how a helicopter could crash, as the White House reported, without at least producing injuries. Yet, in the original White House story, the SEALs not only survived a 40-minute firefight with al Qaeda, “the most highly trained, most dangerous, most vicious killers on the planet,” without a scratch, but also survived a helicopter crash without a scratch.

The Pakistani news report is available on You Tube. The Internet site, Veterans Today, posted a translation along with a video of the interview. And, Information Clearing House made it available on May 17.

If the interview is not a hoax and the translation is correct, we now know the answer to the unasked question: Why was there no White House ceremony with President Obama pinning medals all over the heroic SEALs who tracked down and executed Public Enemy Number One?  Read More

White House on War Powers Deadline: ‘Limited’ US Role in Libya Means No Need to Get Congressional Authorization

"Comment: Yesterday NATO sank 8 Libyan warships in one day, in what sense is that “limited” military action?"

Jake Tapper
ABC News

In an effort to satisfy those arguing he needs to seek congressional authorization to continue US military activity in accordance with the War Powers Resolution, President Obama wrote a letter to congressional leaders this afternoon suggesting that the role is now so “limited” he does not need to seek congressional approval.

“Since April 4,” the president wrote, “U.S. participation has consisted of: (1) non-kinetic support to the NATO-led operation, including intelligence, logistical support, and search and rescue assistance; (2) aircraft that have assisted in the suppression and destruction of air defenses in support of the no-fly zone; and (3) since April 23, precision strikes by unmanned aerial vehicles against a limited set of clearly defined targets in support of the NATO-led coalition’s efforts.”

A senior administration official told ABC News that the letter is intended to describe “a narrow US effort that is intermittent and principally an effort to support to support the ongoing NATO-led and UN-authorized civilian support mission and no fly zone.”

“The US role is one of support,” the official said, “and the kinetic pieces of that are intermittent.”

Netanyahu Meets With Obama, Tells Him to Go Pound Sand on 1967 Border Demand

May 20,2011
Weazel Zippers

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Friday he was prepared to make compromises to peace but he rejected President Barack Obama’s proposal that Israel return to its 1967 borders.

Obama and Netanyahu met at the White House a day after the U.S. president endorsed a longstanding Palestinian demand on the borders for their future state.

In remarks to reporters in the Oval Office, Obama said he had reiterated the principles he had laid out on Thursday.

Both men acknowledged differences between their positions.

Obama said the United States and Israel had an extraordinary bond. Netanyahu said he and Obama could still work together for peace.

“The only peace that will endure is one that is based on reality, on unshakable facts. I think for there to be peace, the Palestinians will have to accept some basic realities. The first is that while Israel is prepared to make generous compromises for peace, it cannot go back to the 1967 lines. Because these lines are indefensible. Because they don’t take into account certain changes that have taken place on the ground, demographic changes that have taken place over the last 44 years.

Remember that before 1967, Israel was all of 9 miles wide. It was half the width of the Washington beltway. These were not the boundaries of peace. They were the boundaries of repeated wars because the attack on Israel was so attractive for them. We can’t go back to those indefensible lines and we’re going to have to have a long-term military presence along the Jordan. . . .

We’ve been around for almost four thousand years. We’ve experienced struggle and suffering like no other people. We’ve gone through expulsions, pogroms and massacres and the murder of millions.

But I can say that even at the dearth, even at the nadir of the valley of death, we never lost hope and we never lost our dream of reestablishing a sovereign state in our ancient homeland, the land of Israel.

And now it falls on my shoulders as the Prime Minister of Israel, at a time of extraordinary instability and uncertainty in the middle east to work with you and fashion a peace that will ensure Israel’s security and will not jeopardize it’s survival.

How To Identify Members Of The Collectivist Fringe

"Such a movement has no boundaries. It only stops when it has assimilated EVERYTHING, and never before."

May 17, 2011
By Brandon Smith

There is a mysterious, devious, and violent movement out there on the fringe of American society. Its tendencies are destructive, its theories and ideologies are absurd and unfounded, and its influence is growing to the point of cultural eruption. Its goal is to destabilize the legal constructs and philosophical principles which founded this country and replace them with a new social model so far outside rational guidelines it can only be described as “fantasy land on PCP.”

Now, if you are one of the random indoctrinated idiots out there that has already assumed I am describing the Sovereign Citizens Movement, Constitutionalists, or so called “right wing extremists”, then you have answered incorrectly, you receive no consolation prize, and you go home empty handed on top of being completely inept. Hang your head in shame...

I am certainly not describing Constitutionalists, who have never been a “fringe movement”, and never will be. I am not talking about Sovereign Citizens, who, thanks to a recent and very poorly executed 60 Minutes hit piece, are now superficially lumped in with every conceivable villain known to man, including Terry Nichols, Jerry and Joseph Kane, racism in general, and the ever nefarious Wesley Snipes (who did, I admit, play a villain in the movie ‘Demolition Man’).

This rancid piece of festering half-assed journalism is a laughable example of a clueless and outdated mainstream media desperately trying to tap the propaganda vein of the average American dupe. Luckily, the only people left on the planet that actually watch ‘60 Minutes’ for news value are all senile geriatrics who are about 60 minutes from death anyway. However, the hit piece does represent very well the particular movement I am describing.  Read More

"Decorated Army Surgeon Was Treated Like A Common Criminal…Isn’t Social Security Fraud A Crime?"

One Pissed-off Vietnam Vet

And in the White House, Folks, we have this clown, this con artist who shows fake birth certificates, has a bogus Social Security card, and pretends he’s the president of the United States. But wait, other people ALSO pretend that he’s the president; what’s that all about? Well, it’s got to be power and money, but mostly money. These people will do everything possible to keep the gravy train on track.

These people, and, let me tell you, there’s a whole bunch of them, are very entrenched. They’re the bosses and have their underlings hand-picked to follow directions and orders without questioning the legality of those orders. In other words, most government employees are synonymous with what leeches do with as little effort as humanly possible. Also, there are minions of policemen who will do whatever they are told in order to protect their paychecks and pensions, as are many in the military, especially the Joint Chiefs of Staff and high-ranking officers in the Pentagon.

The mainstream media are on board with the charade because of fears of losing their license from the F.C.C. Actually, the F.C.C. should have pulled their licenses for pushing White House propaganda and lies, but since the F.C.C. has been corrupted, as have other departments of the government, their mandates have been rendered obsolete.  Read More

Cell phone towers may be ultimate cause of honeybee population collapse

"How cell towers cause honeybee hives to collapse"

May 16, 2011
By Mike Adams

It's one of the signs of the approaching food collapse our world will soon be facing: Honeybees are disappearing at a truly alarming rate all around the world. Up to 30 percent of the honeybee population is collapsing in North America every year, and there's no end in sight to "the silence of the bees."

Honeybees, of course, pollinate about a third of all the food consumed by first-world nations. Without them, the global food supply crashes and food prices skyrocket. The human population, not surprisingly, would plummet. Honeybees are absolutely crucial to the chain of life on planet Earth, and they are dying in record numbers.

Efforts to understand the cause of the honeybee population collapse (sometimes called "Colony Collapse Disorder") have so far pointed to pesticides, air pollution and even GMOs. All of those are no doubt important factors, but new research carried out at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology may have unveiled the real key: Cell phone signals.

Stephen Hawking: Heaven is a ‘Fairy Story’

Physicist Stephen Hawking denounced for believing human beings are biological robots with no consciousness or free will

May 16, 2011
By Mike Adams

Behind every madman, there is a distorted philosophy that denies people their humanity, says Mike Adams, creator of the new mini-documentary "The God Within," available now on NaturalNews.TV. This documentary deconstructs the core philosophies underpinning modern scientific thinking, unveiling the frightening fact that most modern scientists do not believe human beings have free will, a soul, or even anything resembling consciousness.

The first 22 minutes of the mini-documentary are available for viewing right now at:

Hawking: Godless, mindless, soulless and hopeless

In "The God Within," Adams takes aim at famed physicist Stephen Hawking, author of the book "The Grand Design." In that book, Hawking claims that human beings are merely "biological machines" with no consciousness, no souls, no spirit, no mind and nothing but a collection of organized chemicals that run physical brains in a deterministic machine-like way. This belief, says filmmaker Mike Adams, also the editor of NaturalNews.com, is a dangerous pretext for the "scientific" experimentation on human beings because it fails to recognize the value of life, free will or conscious experience.  Read More

IMF Chief Charged With Sexual Assault

May 15, 2011
By Brandon Smith

"I literally laughed until I cried when I read this headline. Not that sexual assault is funny, but it just tickles me to see a globalist proponent of world currency and world government finally exposed for what he really is; a lunatic with wandering hands! These are the people that want to rule the world, folks! A bunch of rapists and murderers, parading as "philosopher kings"! Time to wake up..."

IMF chief and possible French presidential contender Dominique Strauss-Kahn was taken into police custody and is expected to be charged on Sunday with an alleged sexual assault of a hotel maid in New York City, police said.

Strauss-Kahn, a key player in the world's response to the 2007-09 financial meltdown and in Europe's ongoing debt crisis, was removed from an Air France plane 10 minutes before it was to take off for Paris from John F Kennedy International Airport, New York police spokesman Paul Browne said.

Browne said police expected Strauss-Kahn would be formally arrested and charged: "He will be charged with a criminal sexual act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment."

A lawyer representing Strauss-Kahn, Benjamin Brafman, told Reuters in an email that the IMF chief "will plead not guilty." Brafman made no further comment...  Read More

Texas may criminalize TSA pat-downs as molestation (opinion)

"This is one government department (among many) that needs to be seriously downsized."

May 14, 2011
By Mike Adams

Texas is a fiercely independent-minded state, and it also turns out that Texans are tired of being sexually molested by government agents at the airport. That's why Texas State Congressman Rep. David Simpson decided to do something about it: He sponsored a bill which makes it a crime for security agents to touch "the anus, sexual organ, buttocks, or breast of another person," even though clothing.

Well, gee, then that basically scraps the entire TSA playbook of tyranny. If they can't touch your anus, sex organs and breasts, then I guess they'll just have to go back home and touch themselves instead. Along those lines, a TSA agent was recently arrested for distributing child pornography: http://www.newsroomamerica.com/stor...

Can Texas resist federal tyranny?

This is shaping up to be a highly entertaining showdown between Texas-minded freedom and federal government tyrants masquerading as security officers. I can't wait to see a group of Texas Sheriffs marching in to the airport, arresting TSA agents, and throwing them in the local jail for touching the crotch of a 3-year-old baby while they were checking for poop bombs.  Read More

TEPCO to cover damaged Fukushima reactors with useless polyester tents

"The containment vessels are cracked. They are releasing radiation. Fission excursions are still occurring and no one can go inside those containments for hundreds of years -- even if they could get to the fuel"

May 14, 2011
By Ethan A. Huff

In a demonstration of the company's shocking ignorance concerning the nature of radioactive particles, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has announced that it is going to place large polyester domes -- yes, you read that right -- around the damaged reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in an alleged attempt to help contain radioactive particles. The polyester domes will begin appearing next month, and all are expected to be in place by the end of the year, say reports.

The TEPCO announcement, of course, is an insult to the intelligence of billions of people worldwide that understand that a thin layer of polyester fabric will do absolutely nothing to contain radioactive particles. Nevertheless, the company is moving forward with its plan to tent the facility, which also happens to conveniently hide from the public the true condition of the reactors behind a layer of opaque plastic material (http://www.myfoxny.com/dpps/news/ja...).

The announcement comes just one day after TEPCO announced that the Reactor 1 cooling pools are dry, and that its nuclear fuel rods have melted (http://www.naturalnews.com/032378_n...). So while most of the world falsely believes that the Fukushima crisis is over, TEPCO has quietly admitted that it basically lied about the dire condition of the plant, and that it now plans to cover up the facility with plastic tents.

50 Things Every American Should Know About The Collapse Of The Economy

"It has been said that those that sow the wind, shall reap the whirlwind. 

We are about to experience the consequences of decades of really bad decisions."

May 14, 2011
The Economic Collaspe

Right now, we are witnessing a truly historic collapse of the economy, and yet most Americans do not understand what is going on.  One of the biggest reasons why the American people do not understand what is happening to the economy is because our politicians and the mainstream media are not telling the truth.  Barack Obama and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke keep repeating the phrase "economic recovery" over and over, and this is really confusing for most Americans because things sure don't seem to be getting much better where they live.  There are millions upon millions of Americans that are sitting at home on their couches right now wondering why they lost their jobs and why nobody will hire them.  Millions of others are wondering why the only jobs they can get are jobs that a high school student could do.  Families all across America are wondering why it seems like their wages never go up but the price of food and the price of gas continue to skyrocket.  We are facing some very serious long-term economic problems in this country, and we need to educate the American people about why the collapse of the economy is happening.  If the American people don't understand why they are losing their jobs, why they are losing their homes and why they are drowning in debt then they are going to keep on doing all of the same things that they have been doing.  They will also keep sending the same idiot politicians back to Washington to represent us.  There are some fundamental things about the economy that every American should know.  The American people need to be shocked out of their entertainment-induced stupor long enough to understand what is really going on and what needs to be done to solve our nightmarish economic problems.  If we do not wake up enough Americans in time, the economic collapse that is coming could tear this nation to shreds.  Read More

Yes Mr. President, I Do Want Alligators in My Moat

"What I do not expect the President of the United States to do is laugh it up at his adversaries' expense in order to gain political momentum in the face of falling poll numbers."

May 13, 2011
By Lauri B. Regan

In yet another one of Obama's highly touted campaign speeches (are there any other type?), the President once again chose to use derisive rhetoric to whip up the masses against those horrible Republicans. Obama attempted to put the GOP on the defensive by suggesting that Republicans not only want the country surrounded by a moat to prevent evil immigrants from entering, but that in order to ensure success, they would fill the moat with alligators.

Apparently, the only result that Obama achieved from these ridiculous and extremely un-presidential one-liners was an electorate feeling complete and utter disgust at his obnoxious display of arrogance with regard to such an important domestic issue. The country is in economic turmoil and is being threatened by terrorists who originate in the Middle East and Northern Africa but who are crossing our borders undetected, and our president wants to lead from behind so that he can campaign (and bash Republicans) from in front.

Well Mr. President, I am proud to say that I do want alligators in a moat that protects our country. And I hope to God that you have one or more decision-makers in your administration that understand that it will take a lot more than killing Osama bin Laden and occasional drone strikes in Afghanistan to protect the citizens who hired you for that job. For while you traverse the country spiking the football and fundraising for the 2012 election, there are way too many terrorists who want to see each and every U.S. citizen dead and who are not taking time out of their planning stages to play golf; party with hateful, racist rappers; and hobnob with the rich and famous at $35,000 a plate dinners.   Read More

Narrative Behind Bin Laden Fable Flip-Flops AGAIN

Obama administration’s struggle to get its lies straight is an insult to the intelligence of the American people

May 13, 2011
By Paul Joseph Watson

You have to wonder what on earth the Obama administration hopes to achieve by continually insulting the intelligence of the American people, after the official narrative behind the alleged Bin Laden raid was changed yet again, presumably in a desperate effort to counter the revelation that the White House “situation room” photos were staged.

After first claiming that Navy SEALS recorded the entire 40 minute raid of the alleged Bin Laden compound live on their head cameras, CIA Director Leon Panetta subsequently backtracked, saying the video feed was cut off when the SEALS entered the building, but now the official narrative has been reversed yet again with the claim that SEALS did in fact record the whole episode.

According to a CBS News report, “The 40 minutes it took to kill bin Laden and scoop his archives into garbage bags were all recorded by tiny helmet cameras worn by each of the 25 SEALs.”

This mirrors the first version of the narrative which preceded the release of “situation room” photos that purported to show Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and White House security staff watching the raid unfold live. In one photo, Clinton is show with her hand over her mouth as if anxiously reacting in shock to what she is witnessing.

At the time, the corporate media reported that these images represented the moment when “The leader of the free world saw the terror chief shot in the left eye.”

However, CIA Director Leon Panetta subsequently revealed that there was a 25 minute blackout when the live feed was cut, and that Obama and Clinton saw nothing of the raid after the SEALS had entered the compound. This led to accusations that the “situation room” photos were staged, which prompted Hillary Clinton to claim that the dramatic ‘hand over mouth’ image was in fact merely her coughing.

But now the story has flipped yet again, into its third incarnation, going back to the first claim that there was no blackout of the video feed. Presumably in a few days the story will be changed a fourth time when the White House is presented with a new anomaly that it can’t properly explain.

Obama and Marxism in America

"Ravening Wolf at America’s Door"

May 13, 2011

By Judi McLeod

In all of world history there is nothing so cunning as the unimpeded cunning of the Marxists.

In open societies where the masses go about the daily grind of getting by, the Marxists are out there turning society upside-down. Wrong is presented as right; evil as good. Once enough tables have been sufficiently turned upside-down, the Marxists turn around and blame it on the other side.

Above all else the Marxists excel at the fine art of projection. Because they lack empathy of others, and like textbook psychopaths have no conscience, they don’t even mind getting caught.  Read More

Leadership: When Asked About Osama’s Killing – Bush Praises CIA and SEALs

Reporters questioned President Bush during a speaking engagement in Las Vegas.

ABC reported:

Appearing before the crowd of 1,800 at the glitzy Bellagio resort and casino, Bush appeared light-hearted and relaxed in talking about bin Laden’s death.

When asked by forum moderator Melissa Lee of CNBC how he felt upon learning the news, Bush said he was “not overjoyed,” explaining that the campaign to track down the 9/11 mastermind was done not “out of hatred but to exact judgment.”

The development is ultimately a victory for the American people, he said.

“The guy is dead. That is good,” Bush said of bin Laden. “Osama’s death is a great victory in the war on terror. He was held up as a leader.”

“The intelligence services deserve a lot of credit. They built a mosaic of information, piece by piece,” he said, claiming no credit for himself.

“I met SEAL Team Six in Afghanistan. They are awesome, skilled, talented and brave,” he added. “I said, ‘I hope you have everything you need. One guy said, ‘We need your permission to go into Pakistan and kick ass.’”

The God Within documentary, exposes the false philosophical foundations of modern science

"Modern science is psychopathic in its applications"

By Mike Adams

I have a timely and important message to share with you today. As explained in this important mini-documentary we've decided to release at this moment (link below), it is time that we tore away the false facade of "modern science" and exposed the core philosophical underpinnings that have enabled so much pain, suffering and destruction to be carried out in the name of "science."

The world of "science" has given us atomic weapons, GMOs, vaccines, toxic synthetic chemicals, pesticides and psychiatric drugs. It has used innocent people in deadly medical experiments (http://www.naturalnews.com/019189.html) and unleashed widespread genetic pollution on our world through the careless proliferation of genetically modified organisms (http://www.naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=2...). But the scientists insisted they were creating a better world. "Better living through chemistry," they said two decades ago. And now, a generation later, we are dealing with a collapse of life on our planet so large and so disastrous that it is being called the sixth great extinction of life on our planet (http://www.naturalnews.com/031625_m...).

How could science have paved the way for such destruction on the planet?
Watch The God Within mini-documentary to find out. It's available for viewing right now on NaturalNews.TV:


We denounce the core philosophical delusions of science

This new documentary, The God Within, seeks to answer the question of why science is so destructive and dangerous. It begins by denouncing the false philosophy fronted by famed physicist Stephen Hawking, who insists that human beings are biological robots with no consciousness, no free will, no minds and no spirit.

In his own words, from his book The Grand Design:

"It is hard to imagine how free will can operate if our behavior is determined by physical law, so it seems that we are no more than biological machines and that free will is just an illusion."  Read More

Why democracy is failing America

"Not surprisingly, in a free and open democracy, tough, unpopular decisions will almost never be supported by the majority of voters."

May 13, 2011

By Mike Adams

Democracy is the worst form of government, Sir Winston Churchill once said... except for every other form of government. In other words, all forms of government are atrociously bad, and democracy may merely be the least bad of the bunch. I certainly wouldn't want to live under a dictatorship, socialism or communism. So I like the idea of democracy, and I wish it would work better for America. But it isn't working. That much is clear. Democracy is failing America, and we can't just blame it on the politicians and the corporations. People actually vote for their own self-destruction by electing professional liars to represent them.

That's where this article begins.

Why democracy isn't working for America

At its core, the democratic process of electing representatives is a popularity contest. The voters inevitably end up supporting whichever lawmakers offer the best handouts right now, regardless of the long-term consequences to the nation. Voting, in other words, is a contest based on short-term rewards rather than long-term vision. Not surprisingly, when the voters go to the polls, they tend to elect the person who promises them the most right now.

Now, it's crucial to recognize this simple economic fact: No government can offer something to one person without first taking it from another. So the more handouts, entitlements and benefits any government offers, the more it must confiscate from others in order to meet its "obligations" to the voters.

This creates a downward spiral of entitlements leading to inescapable debt. Because sooner or later, governments always run out of other people's money.  Read More

Soros' Ties to Over 30 Major News Organizations

May 12, 2011
Fox News

Editor's note: This is the first of a two part series on George Soros and the media.

When liberal investor George Soros gave $1.8 million to National Public Radio , it became part of the firestorm of controversy that jeopardized NPR’s federal funding. But that gift only hints at the widespread influence the controversial billionaire has on the mainstream media. Soros, who spent $27 million trying to defeat President Bush in 2004, has ties to more than 30 mainstream news outlets – including The New York Times, Washington Post, the Associated Press, NBC and ABC.

Prominent journalists like ABC’s Christiane Amanpour and former Washington Post editor and now Vice President Len Downie serve on boards of operations that take Soros cash. This despite the Society of Professional Journalists' ethical code stating: “avoid all conflicts real or perceived.”

This information is part of an upcoming report by the Media Research Centers Business & Media Institute which has been looking into George Soros and his influence on the media.  Read More

Bombshell: U.S. government questioned Obama citizenship

Said it lacked documents to determine birth country

May 11, 2011

By Aaron Klein

The U.S. government is on record questioning President Obama's citizenship status as early as when he was 5 years old, stating it lacked documentation to determine his citizenship, WND has learned.

The citizenship inquiry dated back to 1966, when Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was attempting to secure a waiver so her second husband, Indonesian citizen Lolo Soetoro, could return to the country after his visa had expired.   Read More

Trump Is Already Running the Country

"The U.S. Constitution requires that both parents be natural-born Americans."

May 11, 2011

Joan Swirsky

The cartoonist Fuller depicts the billionaire-builder Donald Trump dressed in a circus-master’s outfit and holding in one hand a red, white and blue megaphone and in the other hand a hoop blazing with a fire that says Birth Certificate Question through which a terrified and desperate Obama is leaping.

That about sums up what has happened over the past month or so, as Trump decided to ask the simple question legions of people have been asking and legions of lawyers have been waging lawsuits about for the past almost-three years: Where’s the birth certificate?

Instantly the craven media and assorted Hollywood types who have been effectively conspiring with Team Obama to keep all aspects of his life hidden from public view mobilized to quash Trump, as usual choosing Rule #12 from the Chicago Marxist Saul Alinsky’s famous book, Rules for Radicals: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” In essence, go after your enemy personally and not his business because people are more vulnerable and hurt faster than institutions.

But whoever was responsible for the vast media blackout on the birth-certificate subject never counted on a person like Trump, who is immune to intimidation or threats. In short, they were messing with the wrong person.

Here is but a small sample of how “in the bag” the media were – even before Obama tried to come clean:

Americans Are The Most Gullible People On The Planet

"The fact that such propaganda is naive, cartoonish, and an insult to any thinking person’s intelligence actually helps the moronic masses absorb it better."

May 11, 2011

By Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com

Here’s a reminder that the vast majority of Americans are amongst the most gullible people on the planet. President Obama’s ability to pose as a “tough guy” over the contrived fable of the Bin Laden raid, allied with a return to simple-minded Bush-style terror fearmongering and helpful media spin on the economy, has enabled him to secure a massive 13 point bounce in approval ratings.

From being in a position where even Democrats were so convinced that Obama would lose the election they were prepared to declare him incompetent and evict him from power, a majority of Americans now think that Obama deserves a second term.

Back in November, the president’s approval rating stood at a paltry 47 per cent, but following the Bin Laden raid and Obama’s hastily executed photo-op at ground zero, allied to his administration’s fearmongering about Al-Qaeda reprisal attacks, it now stands at 60 per cent according to a AP-GfK survey, a whopping 13 point bounce from the all time low.

After the staged Bin Laden Hollywood production, 65 per cent of Americans now believe that Obama is a “strong leader,” and 69 per cent say they trust him to keep the nation safe.

Meanwhile, although unemployment has risen to 9 per cent, while people on food stamps are at an all time record high, as house prices continue to plunge with 25% of all mortgages now underwater, and the dollar continues to sink, Americans have also bought the corporate media’s spin on the “improving” financial picture, with a majority now approving of Obama “stewardship” of the economy.  Read More

Is Obama a Serial Liar?

"Obama and his administration are masters in getting Americans to think with their hearts instead of their brains. After all, emotions are easier to manipulate than facts."

May 10, 2011

By Nancy Morgan

Accusing someone of lying is a serious matter. Especially when that someone is the President of the United States. Charges of that nature should be leveled based only on absolute proof of a deliberate statement, intentionally made, whose sole purpose is to deceive. Based on this criterion, President Obama is a liar. Demonstrably so. And a disturbing pattern is emerging that allows for the possibility that our president is a serial liar. Consider:

In just the last month, Obama has made several statements that are just not so. Statements made to the American public that were in direct conflict with known facts.  Read More

Media Scrambles as Bin Laden Story Crumbles

"But as analysts pointed out, the newly revealed fact that there was no fire fight begs the question about where the “fog” may have come from. And even more importantly: Why, in the absence of a fire fight, would U.S. forces put a bullet through the brain supposedly containing the most valuable intelligence on the planet?"

May 10, 2011

By Alex Newman

While the establishment media was busy parroting President Obama’s announcement of Osama bin Laden’s supposed assassination, reporting the unsubstantiated claims as if they were unquestionable facts, much of the so-called “alternative” press was far more cautious — and accurate, it turns out. But more importantly, with the new official storyline indicating that bin Laden was in fact unarmed, bigger and much more important questions are beginning to emerge.

In terms of coverage, it turns out that the skeptical approach proved far superior in terms of getting it right. Countless mainstream sources were so confident in Obama’s word that they reported many of the claims as fact without even attributing them to the President.

But the official White House narrative has been changed so many times in recent days that now it’s almost unrecognizable. There wasn‘t even a fire fight; yet this was one of the crucial elements of the original story that justified the assassination of a person the government painted as the most valuable source of information on the planet — the leader of al-Qaeda. And in reporting the statements as fact, the establishment press has officially been left with egg all over its face again.  Read More

Americans preparing like never before - are you ready for the unexpected?

"Such preparations are reportedly being made all over the country. But why now? What has changed?"

May 10, 2011
By J. D. Heyes

Hurricane Katrina. Hurricane Gustav. The recent tornadoes throughout the south. Flooding in Missouri. The devastating fallout from a major earthquake along the New Madrid fault line. The devaluation of the U.S. dollar. Hyperinflation. Civil unrest.

All of these are disasters that have happened or are waiting to happen, and each one brings with it unique circumstances. But there a few common threads interwoven through all of them. One of the most important of those is the issue of personal preparedness.

All over the country an increasing number of people seem to have gotten the message that in worst-case scenarios, government - local, state or federal - may not be there to help. In Colorado, for example, residents are stocking up on extra food, water, weapons and ammunition - even scrap silver and reserve stocks of gasoline. Some people are even preparing secondary shelters and bunkers.

"It's becoming apparent to many Americans that depending on our local, state and federal governments in the event of an emergency, catastrophic societal collapse or widespread disaster will not be sufficient to meet the needs of your family," writes Mac Slavo of the prepper Web site SHTFPlan.com.  Read More

Maui News: An unplanned swim with the dolphins

A family enjoyed the experience of a lifetime Thursday morning when a pod of spinner dolphins swam up to them while they snorkeled at Honolua Bay. The dolphins put on a show before moving out to deeper water. The state recommends that swimmers maintain a 150-foot buffer zone from the wild animals, but there are times when “dolphins do approach people,” said aquatic biologist Skippy Hau.

Bin Laden's Death: Charlie Chan and the Mystery of the Mansion Hideout

"Jimmy: You mean the government might not be telling us the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, Pop?

Chan: Number One Son, do not be alarmed with what I am about to tell you: No government does such things."

May 07, 2011

American Thinker

As the story of the death of Osama bin Laden grows more curious by the day, it's time we call in that legendary Honolulu police detective of yesteryear, Charlie Chan, to visit the scene.

With his Number One Son, Jimmy, Chan arrives at the former hideout of the deceased mass murderer, where a small crowd of on-lookers still lingers. This conversation ensues:

Jimmy: Gee, Pop, this doesn't look like a mansion. It looks more like a three-story police headquarters in a provincial capital in Guatemala.

Chan: True, but look around, Jimmy. Few houses are nearby, and none is bigger. Nor is there another house surrounded by a tall wall topped with barbed wire. But you are right, Number One Son. It does look like a jail, but given its secluded location and size, to some here it might appear to be the home of a rich man.

Jimmy: If bin Laden was hiding here from the Pakistani authorities, as well as from the Americans, isn't this a high profile place to hide?

Chan: Yes, Jimmy. And within your question lives another: Was he hiding from the Pakistani authorities?

Jimmy: They said they were hunting him.

Chan: Look around. What do you see?

Jimmy: Mostly open fields, with only a few houses nearby.

Chan: Look further.
