" This seemingly innocent image of sleeping puppies could contain cleverly hidden coded messages from Russian spies. (Although, in this case, it's just a picture of sleeping puppies.)"
" "Jalalabad airfield is under attack. I can confirm it. It is still going on, so I can't give much detail," said Lieutenant-Commander Iain Baxter, a spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force"
Note: Big news on the oil spill...while the Navy is at the front door of Iran, our military is protecting the mafia assets in AfPakistan (and losing the war), Iraq - hell who knows? Don't forget the 10 bases in Columbia - surrounding Chavez or whatever they are up to down there.
I just hope our guys don't get overrun over there because it is just a way of life, it seems, for the Afghans. Hopefully the Feds will just run themselves out of money before they come up with new ways to tax us. Perhaps they will leverage this Gulf thing into their way to take complete control.
" "As you know, I don't think it's a secret I am Jewish," she added. "The state of Israel has meant a lot to me and my family. And – and I admire Justice Barak for what he's done for the state of Israel and ensuring an independent judiciary."
If appointed, Kagan would be the third Jewish justice on the nine-member Supreme Court panel."
Note: I DON'T CARE if she believes in the flying spaghetti monster - what scares me is her disregard for OUR country and the Bill of Rights and her admiration for the laws of another country. Something about this whole situation is FUBAR.
By the way - why didn't one of these legal geniuses ask her if she thought it was constitutional for the sickos in the executive branch of OUR GOVERNMENT to murder its own citizens, the ones they presently maintain a hit list of? This is a circus. I'm sure she agrees with the extrajudicial killing practices of Israel - I'm talking about here. Remember - United States Elena - we are not in the tiny country of Israel now.
Note: Next time keep singing?
COURT CASES ON GUN CONTROL AND STATE SOVEREIGNTY ARE POPPING UP EVERYWHERE. FREEDOM HANGS IN THE BALANCE
" Gun control is not only a 2nd Amendment issue, it also relates to other parts of the Constitution. The 2nd Amendment states, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." The 10th Amendment states, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
In a conversation with G. Edward Griffin, he said that there are two competing philosophies about the Bill of Rights:"
Note: As usual the power-hungry federal government is leading us toward a path of ever-concentrating power - taking more and more control over the states with the ultimate goal that each state will become no more than a small federally run area.
The civil war demonstrated that real states rights - in other words the right to secede from the union wasn't an option - mostly because might makes right and the union had the power. That situation in some respects still exists - in some respects doesn't exist. The federal government is broke and everybody hates them - foreign and domestic - that is - except those who are stuck in an endless cycle living in the war industry.
This time - the "rebels" would not bear the onerous burden they did last time - that is - slavery does not exist. Slavery, which needed to die, was forever a part of the old states-rights south. But the states rights people today have right on their side - and no burden like slavery to give would-be allies reason not to help. For example - Great Britain, while providing some support, like the surreptitious building of the CSS Alabama, could not be relied upon as a great political ally because slavery had already been abhored in Great Britain for some time. Lincoln, grasping this, was able to prevent war support from GB to the Confederacy by "freeing the slaves" making it impolitic for Britain to support the South from that point on. But when one looks at how much he actually "freed the slaves" it was political more than anything. The people who hated slavery in the North and in the South were actually responsible for spearheading that great cause. It took great sacrifice on the part of the people to move that issue forward - the law followed.
Here we are today facing many parallels from the past history of this country - with civil war being one. The label of "terrorist" will continue to be used by the globalists to frame their opponents - the Patriot movement - intent on the preservation of the Bill of Rights, and Constitution of the United States - and hopefully US sovereignty. We shall see - the masses getting most of their information from Corporate and State controlled media are still in a deep trance.
As the money runs out and the Fed/Globalists accelerate their plan to forfeit US sovereignty, our rights and eventually expose us to global taxation, when the bills start showing up in the mailboxes is when the stuff will hit the fan. Perhaps our politicians can be replaced with statesmen before this gloomy futurescape takes a more focused and blatant appearance.
This latest gun legislation - in my opinion - may avert conflict between the states and feds that were lining up for a battle over states gun rights - but I don't think it is going to solve the problem. In fact I think it will eventually get worse as the Feds are addicted to power and the states run out of money and rights to support the fed/globalist's addiction.
But please take a look at the article - G. Edward Griffin is extremely sensible and usually presents solutions. See also the vid on the left side of this blog - The Dangerous Servant.
By the way - I would warn readers to be careful if watching anything Glenn Beck does that has to do with this issue. His propaganda is very clever - and mixes elements of truth like this issue - with dangerous notions undermining our Bill of Rights - like "shoot him in the head." This statement he makes - accurately tells you his view - kill 'em all let God sort them out.
I would remind EVERYONE that trials before punishment are important - required by law - and become super-important to YOU when you are under arrest and someone who hates YOU is in a position to be judge jury and executioner. Practice your critical thinking skills when that con artist is busy putting on his fake-patriot act. Look for contradictions between what he is saying and the true security of America. How about he talks about 911 being an inside job? Tough to do when he was such a strong anti-911-truther running interference for the biggest con ever pulled off on the American public - one still successfully covered up thanks to con-men like him.
By the way - didn't Glenn Beck appear on the scene right after 9-11-01 - I mean within minutes after having been a nobody? Now he has this idiotic 9-12 project. Perfect to erase from the mind of the public the events of 9-11-2001. We'll just keep repeating 9-12 to the mushroom masses over and over and over again and maybe they will forget that elements of their own government slaughtered 3,000 civilians, covered it up, used it to start illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan - continues to use it to start illegal wars and continues to cover it up.
Glenn Beck never says bring the troops home. His job is to use everything in his power to keep your mind off the issues that really matter by using some that, although important, are unrelated to the real solutions, but will keep you divided from agreement with your neighbors or even members of your government. Think how you always walk away angry when Glenn is on the air. Anger is not a way to enter into negotiations when you are looking for common ground. We need to come together not become more divided. Glenn Beck is a fraud. Period. Turn him OFF.
Notice: "Shoot him in the head before ..." Before what? Just listen. That's how you know he's a traitor to our laws.
Here is the Glenn "shoot him in the head" report on this issue - be careful when listening to this side-show:
Note: I hate people who won't answer questions directly - especially this tool - Kagan. Get her outa' my face.
Note: Here is a starting point where the Congress - the people's house, begins by using the power of the purse to reign in the ridiculous Executive and their handlers by telling them to run the filthy wars with the kids and money they've already been given. Yes - even one more day of this sickness is disgusting - but this is how you get the ball rolling - how you get things started - how we begin getting the warmongering bloodthirsty goons under control - our control. No more money.
Alan Grayson has been a favorite of mine for some time.
" “We are faced with almost the total destruction of Greece’s social security and labor system,” Spyros Papaspyrou, chairman of ADEDY union for civil servants, said by telephone before the march. “We remain committed to this struggle.”
Greece is in the midst of its biggest upheaval since joining the euro nine years ago after being forced to take action to avoid a debt default. Reforms to pensions and the way workers are hired and fired are required by the European Union and International Monetary Fund in return for the 110 billion euros ($135 billion) of emergency loans agreed in May."
Note: So it's time for the workers to work more - until they get to the point where we are in the US - just debt slaves. Losing everything. They're better off fighting it out now or they'll end up like we are - divided and getting robbed anyway.
As far as I'm concerned the privatization ideas Americans wish would work - but never seem to - actually would work if we didn't have such a corrupt and untethered government with globalist puppetmasters fomenting disaster every time we seem to get our head above water. I don't see any reason Greece or any other country cannot afford to care for EVERY SINGLE SICK PERSON - that is - as long as all the money that would normally go to paying for such things didn't get shipped off to international bankers, military mass-murderers fighting imperial made-up wars, and other assorted legalized thieves.
The Greeks are taking a stand - perhaps Americans will get some of the word - but it may not matter. Perhaps the media situation was in lock-down in Greece like it is here - and they got their riots anyway. But what will be the outcome without free press to give feedback to the public? With corporations portraying every REAL event in a manner synthetically produced that fits their fake transmitted world-view?
" The guilty verdict on all three counts in a federal indictment means he could face up to 45 years in prison."
Note: I'm confused - the FEDS indicted him? But aren't the feds the ones that told everybody it's okay?
" Greenwald wrote. "Suffice to say -- and I'm asking this literally -- if you're someone who believes, or are at least willing to acquiesce to the claim, that the U.S. President has the power to target your fellow citizens for assassination without a whiff of due process, what unchecked presidential powers wouldn't you support or acquiesce to?""
Note: Well said. Look at the bright side - once our government servants - who've sleepwalked us into this mess - start killing off the competition - that is - each other - perhaps less venal people will be able to get on the ballot and we can straighten this mess out. :)
" The system was introduced in the wake of the attacks of September 11, 2001 in the United States to help tackle the financing of terrorism.
The Terrorist Finance Tracking Programme allowed US access to information from the interbank money transfer system SWIFT to track suspect finances.
European lawmakers' main concern was that personal information, including data from electronic bank payments, would be used by US authorities, held for too long and handed on to other governments.
Under the new deal, Europol, the European police organisation, will check the validity of US requests."
Note: ... and it is the efforts of these crooks that resulted in zero accountability regarding the capture of those who bought the put options on 9-11-2001 and never collected their profits. Unless that is - the people who did the put options were intent on demonstrating that, as has been pointed out by others, that there was foreknowledge.
Each time I see a new deal between globalists is see one more line erased from the Bill of Rights. Screw the EU I hope it falls apart.
" WASHINGTON - Sarah Palin on Sunday painted President Barack Obama's administration as a cowering giant intent on surrendering the nation's mantle as a superpower and willing to sell out its allies.
The former John McCain running mate addressed a paying audience of several hundred people in Norfolk, Virginia and accused Obama of selling out ally Israel in over its naval blockade of Gaza and treating Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shabbily. "
Note: Sarah Palin demonstrates that the "Tea Party" has been corrupted - and her words in this articled demonstrate that she doesn't understand that Israel is not one of the fifty states in the union. From where does her love as Israel come? Or is she simply parroting the words of the politician desperate for money and power at any cost - regardless of the consequences for the United States.
" An eyebrow-raising photograph of one of the anarchists who set fire to a Toronto police car during anti-G20 protests this past weekend shows him wearing Nike clothing, a potential indication that provocateurs dressed up as black-bloc “anarchists” were again employed by authorities to cause mayhem in order to justify a brutal police crackdown and crush free speech, as peaceful protesters were attacked and arrested while the anarchists who torched the cars were left alone."
Note: There are excellent observations in this Watson article. It does seem strange that two guys who just burned a cop car would stand around without a care in the world high-fiving or whatever that gesture is in the picture.
It had been anticipated by AJ and others that agent provocateurs would be employed in order to foment violence and then a police backlash to stifle free speech - and - unsurprisingly it happened again.
Interestingly enough - at the local level - here in Charlottesville, Virginia on a local morning AM talk show - they mentioned the riots and left the audience with the impression that the meeting is of no significance since they don't do anything anyway, and that the rioters are over-reacting anarchists, who, when asked by "reporters" what they are doing there can't answer intelligently what it is that they are protesting.
With a bit of internet research, the ability to read, and an open mind a lay-person can rather quickly ascertain that there is a push toward global government and that the Toronto meeting is part of the group forcing global government upon on - contrary to out liberties.
As with many other important issues that face us - the media "serving" the public their latest helping of mushroom food is keeping these topics "internet-only" - and the masses remain ignorant of the overarching agenda.
Anyway I like the article for the critical thought - I enjoy his writing much.
" "It is clear that the Framers . . . counted the right to keep and bear arms among those fundamental rights necessary to our system of ordered liberty," Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote for the conservatives on the court."
" Recently, at a family gathering, one of the older women -- a mother of three boys, two of whom joined the Marines as teenagers -- was talking about the Vietnam-era anti-war demonstrators. Many people believe that the anti-war movement forced an end to the war. I wouldn't go quite that far, but at the very least the anti-war movement proved to me that some Americans still had functioning brains and hearts.
I don't see that very much anymore; the brains appear to have turned to mush, and the hearts to stone. I was hoping the old woman was about to say something of a similar nature, but instead, looking back on the protests, she said, "That was so difficult for the parents!"
Given the circumstances, there was little I could say. I certainly couldn't say what I was thinking: "The parents!? It was difficult for the parents?? How do you think it was for the children???""
1 a supreme ruler, esp. a monarch.
possessing supreme or ultimate power : in modern democracies the people's will is in theory sovereign.

• [ attrib. ] (of affairs) subject to a specified state's control without outside interference .**
As you read this please first imagine that you are the Queen. Oh, if you are a guy like me, you'll have to imagine that you are a King.
As THE KING you can say what you want when you want. You can go where you want when you want. You have financial security and a little left over to get what you need. You have time to take a vacation and your retirement is set up. You have arms - no not the two things hanging off your shoulders - I mean weapons - and maybe you go hunting on your own property. You have the right to use those arms with deadly force to defend your country - more specifically your American way of life - as embodied in the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Nobody can get into your castle unless you invite them in.
But ...........uhm......wait a sec ..... we don't have to imagine this scenario because, as an American citizen, YOU ARE the King! Which brings up some rather serious questions about what the hell your servants have been up to lately! You know, public servants in revolt (and revolting) like Cass Sunstein or Joe Liebermann (Click on his pic left side of this blog)
I suppose anybody (except a King) can get used to the filthy taste of oily seafood after a while - or the sight of oily beaches - or to the possibility that yet another corporation has destroyed everything you have. Yes, dumbed-down Pox-news zombies - the "true believers" - the subjects of the Pentacon Propaganda apparatus. The CorporAmerikan slave labor force of somnambulating droids. You know - the once-citizens having presently so little self-respect they let a bunch of globalists con them into surrendering their unalienable rights for.... a paycheck. Boy am I glad I'm not one of those people - are you?
I am really starting to wonder if Amerikans - and their kids - are just getting what all self-absorbed, consumers who abdicate their sovereignty as citizens deserve - oily poison for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Then - for dessert - the bill!
Oh - and you know how deeply worried your overpaid, cocky, spendthrift, financially and morally bankrupt, torturing, lying, globalist, collectivist, bellicose, be-afraid government servants are about your health right? You can test their effectiveness by taking a deep breath of the poisonous air the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has done such a fine job protecting - down in the Gulf area. Reminds me of their fine work telling all the first responders to go breathe the cancer-cloud at ground zero following 9-11-2001 leading to the now nightmarish sickness those people that trusted this agency last time? Yachting anyone? How about a round of golf? I smell fire - anybody have a fiddle to play?
Whatever is going on in the Gulf - one thing is certain to me. It is all politics. It is all about the next election. It is all about the fake "progressives" making Obombya look good and the Republicrats look bad. For the Republicans it's all about crying that although government is doing a "Heckuva job Brownie" they are not doing a heckuva job this time because making the impotent puppet-prez look bad to the masses will give the party that gave us two illegal wars a chance to grab the White House in the coming presidential election. So what?
It is time for Americans to wise up NOW. This means the abandonment of political party (that which DIVIDES us) and the embracing of the BILL OF RIGHTS AND CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES (that which UNITES us.)
When a radio or TV person - I don't care who it is - must rely on the PARTY of the person they are discussing you can almost always identify an attempt on the part of the speaker to employ PROPAGANDA rather than REASON.
Try listening to someone like Glenn Beck - and take away the Democrat or Republican label when he is making his points - and apply the BILL OF RIGHTS - and the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES to his logic - what happens?
Will you or do you notice that when the LABELS are applied the result is confusion, anger, and DIVISION? Will you or do you notice that when the BILL OF RIGHTS AND CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES are applied to his logic - that suddenly - REASON, POINTS UPON WHICH BOTH PARTIES MAY AGREE (for example both parties can agree that they both deserve their freedom of speech) - that UNITY begins to dial into focus?
My fellow Patriots - it is time to come together - all of us who want our country back. All of us who cherish our Republic and recognize the rara avis (a bald eagle?) that is America - land of the free and home of the brave. What does that really really mean?
As the cliche goes: "Freedom is not free." No -FREEDOM IS NOT FREE. So what does it cost?
The purchase price of freedom is, as Thomas Jefferson pointed out: "ETERNAL VIGILANCE." THIS MEANS YOU!
YOU, my fellow liberty loving Patriot, YOU are a KING! This is no exaggeration.
In America - a man's house is his castle - and in each castle there lives a King/Queen. It is great to be a King/Queen as the power wielded is immense. The possibilities for good are endless - the consequences of bad decisions incalculable - as we've seen in the recent stampedes to war. When denied the knowledge of history and current events, our critical thinking skills, decision making skills and collective wisdom summed at the ballot box are made moot - as in computer programming - garbage in- garbage out.
Kings/Queens must have reliable information on which to base their decision. Think about it - doesn't every King/Queen make sure to have the best intelligence apparatus at their disposal - so they can have the best possible information upon which to base their decisions concerning the very life and death of their country? You bet. So it makes sense for the Kings and Queens that run American to have the very best too right? YOU BET.
In a dictatorship - most un-American - in each house lives a corporate slave - or a subject to a King or Queen. There is no need for information - since the government operates in a top-down manner. Of course the best intelligence apparatus - answering directly to the King/Queen is in place - no expense spared, risks taken - all so the best possible information is available to make the life and death decisions upon which the very survival and prosperity of the kingdom balance.
So here in America we Kings and Queens sit - lied to by our servants - actually abused by them. We Kings and Queens - we CITIZENS - you know - those from whom the government derives its just powers -are told by our SERVANTS that by speaking freely we are somehow a threat to them - our servants! We Kings and Queens are being told by OUR SERVANTS that we will be denied our right to bear arms because we cannot be trusted with them - that is - unless OUR SERVANTS need us to go fight another country that hasn't done a damned thing to us.
Are you getting the picture? We Kings and Queens - CITIZENS - established a government of servants to protect our rights and suddenly they are telling us that THEY ARE IN CHARGE OF US! What is wrong with this picture?
My friends - I implore you to think over our situation in America today and ask yourself the who, what, when, where and why's of our current situation and what YOU PERSONALLY intend to contribute to fixing it.
Use the Bill of Rights as your meeting point with everyone you meet - and discard completely the DEMOPUBLICAN-REPUBLICRAT divider illogic. Talk to your friends and family and think - always - ON WHAT DO WE AGREE? I promise you - you can both always agree on the Bill of Rights - USE THAT AS YOUR STARTING POINT. Work out from there. Get a copy of the Constitution if you are unfamiliar - and look it over - it really is simple to read.
Our REPUBLIC - the United States of America - is defined by a sacred respect for the rights of the INDIVIDUAL - the protection of UNPOPULAR speech, unpopular ideas - radical viewpoints - new ideas - all religions - all faiths - because when you gather up 300 or so million Kings and Queens - you've got a meeting of the minds, and a Constitutional system designed to harness that energy that brings out the best in everybody.
Gandhi said: "Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it." I encourage you to meditate upon that thought - perhaps as an inspiration to do SOMETHING - ANYTHING that is within your grasp, with whatever energy you have - whether as leader or follower - friend - neighbor - whatever. But keeping the Bill of Rights in mind - find some way to agree FIRST with someone you normally don't - and work out from there.
One very important action I encourage people to do is to call in to radio shows. Whether local shows where you can get on the air with no screening - or if you have more patience the national ones. Whatever your approach - use your intuition as a guide - and find a topic that you can speak about in some capacity that you feel passionately about. Challenge the host. For example I called the Schilling show here in Charlottesville, Virginia to tell Mr. Schilling that I thought he was out of line for supporting a border patrol agent for shooting a teenage illegal in the face (killing him) because the teenager had thrown a rock at the border patrol agent. You may be surprised, just like when you raise your hand in class, that when you think something, then say it out loud - that there are many many many people who are listening who cheer when you call in and speak for them.
Each one of us can be a leader, follower, helper, assistant, organizer, negotiator - whatever suits. Now is the time. We are winning - but like a forest fire - there is no letting up just because the fire is under control. The solution is to stomp the fire out completely. The fascist fire must be drenched until so wet it drips.
So please take a peek at the following Gulf of Mexico info. Yet another sign of the times - a sign of a failed government - a government of the people, by the people, and for the people - a government of YOU!
So, my fellow King or Queen - what will be your next action?

""Never before has the US Supreme Court ordered a hearing to determine if it is unconstitutional to execute someone who is innocent," said Larry Cox, executive director of Amnesty International USA, in a statement Tuesday."
Note: This is why the death penalty is wrong. The death penalty, just like Cass Sunstein's inherent superior ability to determine the truth or falsity of a "conspiracy theory" assumes that the justice system is infallible - and got it right. Once you kill someone there is no way to un-do the mistake - as we are finding out more and more is the case.

" The Supreme Court rejected first amendment claims and upheld a federal law on providing “material support” to foreign terrorist organizations in Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project. The material support law (found in the 1996 Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996 (AEDPA)) is the darling of prosecutors and widely ridiculed by civil libertarians for allowing virtually any act to be classified as material support. The ruling is a victory for Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan and a loss for civil liberties. Notably, however, even the conservatives on the Court found the interpretation of the Obama Administration to be too extreme."

" Bill Randall, a tea partier who made headlines with his suggestion that BP and the federal government worked together to blow up the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig in April, decisively won last night's runoff, defeating magazine publisher (and relatively more mainstream Republican) Bernie Reeves by a margin of 59% to 41%. Randall will now carry his party's flag to the general election, where he'll face incumbent Rep. Brad Miller (D)."

"It was the police department that largely got Maywood into its current financial troubles.

" In the most widely publicized freedom of information case, Kagan successfully argued that the Supreme Court should overturn a New York appeals court ruling that directed the government to release photographs of foreign detainees being abused by their U.S. captors. The American Civil Liberties Union sought the photos; Obama and the Pentagon opposed their release.
"In the judgment of the president and the nation's highest-ranking military officers, disclosure of the photographs at issue here would pose a substantial risk to the lives and physical safety of United States and allied military and civilian personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan," Kagan told the court in written arguments."

Note: Looks like they are trying to be as responsible as possible. Too bad the Pentagon is so corrupt - we wouldn't need all this - but I suppose this is how it's done.
" Madoff says that his partner in crime, Frank DiPascali, knows who the recipients are -- and that he suspects DiPascali is using that information to cut a better deal with the feds, according to the inmate at the medium-security prison in Butner, N.C."
" Brown Jr. is the chief's son from a previous marriage, according to KTVT. A published report indicated he had a 2003 marijuana charge to which he pleaded guilty."
" The other victims in the shooting were a 37-year-old Lancaster police officer and the 23-year-old shooting suspect, identified as Jeremy McMillian.
The officer - whose name has not been released - was responding to a call for a domestic disturbance call with shots fired at an apartment complex around 6 p.m. on Sunday. According to Lancaster Police Chief Keith Humphrey, when police arrived on the scene, the suspect opened fire and struck the officer. The officer shot back and struck the suspect. "
" Officials said they were investigating how the letter — one of thousands routinely referred to the agency by the White House to gather information for a reply — had been improperly used by the agency’s “fugitive operations” unit to find and arrest Mr. Takoulo, who has an engineering degree and no criminal record."
" "We've had some false reports, as far as visuals," Gomillion said. No oil products from the BP spill have been confirmed inland of the Pensacola Bay or Bob Sikes bridges, he said."
Note: This is how it is done - one at a time. I thank each of the "protesters" for bringing balance to a one-sided conversation. There is strength in numbers and the masses are finally waking up.
Karl Rove, as they point out, doesn't make himself available for debate - so this is the only means available to those who wish to expose his role in the path of waste left by his work.
Thanks to those who made this video. I especially like how the public turns their back on mothers carrying pictures of their dead son or daughter in uniform who realize now, too late, that they were lied to.
" "Right now China, the government, can disconnect parts of its Internet in case of war and we need to have that here too," Lieberman told CNN's Candy Crowley on State of the Union Sunday."
Note: Get this guy out of office before he wrecks this place permanently. Liberman is "scarier" than any terrorist - because he is wrecking America from within. Exactly as was warned about by A. Lincoln and others. This man uses terms like "terrorist" to define when a war will happen, then tell us these measures are only for use "during wartime" which means, using the undefinable term "terrorist" - FOREVER.
Lieberman is the true "lunatic fringe" - afraid of his own shadow - intentionally scaring the public (not me) and one who will benefit the most from another "911-type attack" on US soil.
Lieberman wants to strip US citizens of their citizenship once labeled a "terrorist" - same as Hitler would name someone a "Jew" - how crazy is that?
Lieberman wants to wreck America one step at a time in a last act of desperation to do the bidding of his beloved Israel - at any cost to America. Kick 'em out of office and don't let the whiny snivel back in as a lobbyist either.
" "There is over 500,000 Israelis with American passports and more than 300,000 living in the area of just California," International lawyer Franklin Lamb said in an interview with Press TV recently, adding that those who do not have American or Western passport, have already applied for them."
" Danoff, 30, reported the episode to the Coast Guard. They said they'd get back to him, but never did."
" Friends say he is also worried about burnout and losing touch with his young family due to the pressure of one of most high profile jobs in US politics."
Note: Same PR people everybody else is using. "To spend more time with his/her family"
UPDATE: oh no - just when you thought something good may happen:
A White House official told Fox News early Monday that the report claiming Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel was soon to leave the White House was "ludicrous."
" Julian Assange, who has been garnering more attention since it was announced that Pentagon investigators are looking for him, told his supporters in an email this week that he has a classified video of a U.S. attack on Afghan civilians."
Note: Report from land of the unfree and home of murder inc.:
Pentagon investigator? What a joke. So it's up to the Pentagon to go after journalists. And what? I suppose murder them since Obama has already claimed the right to do so.
I hope Iceland has some good soldiers because I don't think the U.S. military has anything in mind except silencing those bringing the truth to a public that will shut off the faucet of funds they rely on for their misadventures.
The Pentagon has wasted an obscene amount of taxpayer dollars and a horrific amount of human blood the world over. The Pentagon has become a cancer on society. This tells me it is time for yet another false-flag attack to drum up the public to anger at another boogieman - since the Osama thing has gotten stale.
"'Climate change is just at the very beginning. But we're seeing remarkable changes in the weather already.' "
Note: Sometimes I wonder if these are predictions or promises. If science had good answers or decent leadership how did we get into the situation we are in right now? By the way - climate change is as old as the Earth itself.
Emergency Department Visits Involving Nonmedical Use of Selected Prescription Drugs --- United States, 2004--2008
" Rates of overdose deaths involving prescription drugs increased rapidly in the United States during 1999--2006 (1). However, such mortality data do not portray the morbidity associated with prescription drug overdoses. Data from emergency department (ED) visits can represent this morbidity and can be accessed more quickly than mortality data. To better understand recent national trends in drug-related morbidity, CDC and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reviewed the most recent 5 years of available data (2004--2008) on ED visits involving the nonmedical use of prescription drugs from SAMHSA's Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN). This report describes the results of that review, which showed that the estimated number of ED visits for nonmedical use of opioid analgesics increased 111% during 2004--2008 (from 144,600 to 305,900 visits) and increased 29% during 2007--2008. The highest numbers of ED visits were recorded for oxycodone, hydrocodone, and methadone, all of which showed statistically significant increases during the 5-year period. The estimated number of ED visits involving nonmedical use of benzodiazepines increased 89% during 2004--2008 (from 143,500 to 271,700 visits) and 24% during 2007--2008. These findings indicate substantial, increasing morbidity associated with the nonmedical use of prescription drugs in the United States during 2004--2008, despite recent efforts to control the problem. Stronger measures to reduce the diversion of prescription drugs to nonmedical purposes are warranted.
DAWN is a public health information system that tracks the impact of drug use, misuse, and abuse in the United States by monitoring drug-related hospital ED visits. In a manner similar to the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System,* DAWN uses a sample of EDs to estimate national ED visit rates (2). DAWN collects data from a stratified, simple random sample of approximately 220 nonfederal, short-stay, general hospitals that operate 24-hour EDs in the United States. DAWN's sampling frame is based on the American Hospital Association annual survey database and is updated annually to reflect new, closed, merged, and demerged hospitals, and to give new hospitals an opportunity to be selected into the sample."
Note: I searched this document for cannabis, pot, THC - and found nothing. I wonder why? As usual the "war on drugs" is a non-specific war - like "war on terror" and other wars on things like poverty, stupidity. They never work. Eventually the money runs out and people have to fall back on discussion and reasonable courses of action that address the specifics - and face their wasteful over-reliance on generalities.
Perhaps a return to SPECIFICS and reasonable use of marijuana to address some of the maladies these "prescription drugs" are used for would result in fewer emergency room visits - as the patient benefiting from a now-banned and effective drug may never come into contact with the more dangerous and addicting ones.
Just some thoughts.
Read entire article here:
" Prosecutors said the fraud would be one of the biggest and most complex to come out of the housing collapse and the government’s huge bailout of the banking industry. In essence, they described an elaborate shell game that involved covering up the lender’s losses by creating fake mortgages and passing them along to private investors and government agencies.
Federal officials became suspicious after Colonial BancGroup, the main source of financing for Mr. Farkas’s company, tried to obtain $553 million in bailout money from the Troubled Asset Relief Program. The TARP application, filed in early 2009, was contingent on the bank first raising $300 million from private investors."
"After the killing, the indictment said, a false police report was drawn up by Lt. Robert Italiano, who later left the force, and Lt. Travis McCabe. Both were charged with obstruction of justice and making false statements to the F.B.I.
The circumstances surrounding Mr. Glover’s death were first reported in late 2008 in an article that was a collaboration by the Investigative Fund at the Nation Institute and the nonprofit investigative news service Pro Publica.
It became the most gruesome of several deaths that are believed to have occurred at the hands of the New Orleans police, a force that has been troubled for decades.
“Behavior such as described in the indictment has no place in a free society, let alone law enforcement,” Dave Welker, the F.B.I. special agent in charge for Louisiana’s Eastern District, said in a statement on Friday.
The case is one of at least eight investigations into actions of the New Orleans Police Department being conducted by the federal government."
Note: If the FBI locks these guys up - I will have to give them credit for doing something worthwhile for a change.
" OKALOOSA ISLAND – Crowds gathered in the waters Friday morning after officials lifted an advisory against swimming in the gulf.
Okaloosa County Health Department lifted the advisory a day after advising beachgoers to stay out of the waters because of tar balls as well as possible oil sheen and oil slicks headed to the shores.
Officials say the waters are again safe for swimming."
"Adley and Waddell have tried each year of Jindal's tenure to open more of the governor's records to public inspection, decrying existing laws that make the Louisiana chief executive one of the most shielded among U.S. governors. Adley got his version out of committee earlier this session, but watched it die on the Senate floor. Waddell has been unable to get his proposal out a Jindal-friendly House committee and has failed on the floor with other amendment attempts. Waddell also pushed the issue during Gov. Kathleen Blanco's administration."
" The crash occurred just eight hours before Quigg, 48, of Wyndmoor, was to appear in Montgomery County Court for a pretrial hearing on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and a careless driving-related traffic violation in connection with a December 2009 one-vehicle crash along Route 422 in Upper Merion."
" Though much of the Gulf of Mexico remains open to commercial fishing, Louisiana's biggest seafood item, shrimp, is down to just 30 percent of normal production, according to the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board.
... later in the article
John Hartshorne, store manager at Hill's Quality Seafood Exton location, said retailers like Hill's are currently selling frozen shrimp from the Gulf that were caught six to eight months ago.
"You'll see the impact six to eight months down the road," Hartshorne said. As for right now, "we're playing it by ear.""
Who can tell what to believe anymore? I don't rely on CNN for any direct truth - so any information coming from them is highly suspect. Truth from CNN must be gleaned by finding contradictions, anomalies, and always asking: "Who benefits?"
The oil spill is certainly keeping lots of important stuff off the radar - and subsequently out of the public mind - like the Israelis recently shooting an American citizen four times in the head. Two wars based on lies. Lots of other stuff.
Any way you look at this it is frustrating to live in a time of such deceit that we must no longer "trust but verify" but "distrust till verified."
Now watch this CNN video for comparison:

Texas Rep. Joe Barton apologizes to BP CEO Tony Hayward over White House's '$20 billion shakedown' Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politic
" A Texas congressman with a tin ear gave Tony Hayward, the embattled honcho of reviled oil giant BP, something totally unexpected on Thursday - an apology.
Rep. Joe Barton, a Republican whose sprawling district includes Houston, called Hayward the victim of a "$20 billion shakedown."
"I apologize," Barton told Hayward. "I'm ashamed of what happened in the White House yesterday. I think it's a tragedy."
Note: How cornfusing
" Last year, I wrote about my visit to Vouliagmeni to see what Bilderberg was all about. It wasn't a happy trip. But in my final piece I asked people to come along in 2010 and help sprinkle the "slug" of Bilderberg with the "salt" of publicity. About 10 or so people took me up on this. Of these 10, one was "Quierosaber", the brave fellow who crawled into the hills before sunrise, with leaves wrapped around his head, and took photos of the delegates (see our Spot the Delegate quiz, and our Bilderberg 2010 Power Gallery). In one of his photos appeared Gordon Campbell, the premier of British Columbia. The Canadian press started asking questions, and discovered that he'd paid for his plane ticket to Bilderberg using public money"
" The records were accessed while Obama was a candidate for president, president-elect and after he took office, documents say."
Note: Nothing like 'transparency' - who cares about this idiot-prez's student loans? Unless they show that he wasn't a citizen or something like that - then I guess the game changes a bit. I suppose we'll have to wait to find out.
Wait one second.....
OK - I'm ready now - hadda' finish a can of Bud. Yeah - you know the stuff nobody except the dirtbags drink that fills the aisles of the grocery stores and stuffs the pockets of the rich while RomAmerika burns...
Ready for what? I'll tell you but first ask yourself this - why in the living fuck do you need to ask? Don't you already know?
Lemme take a breath and calm down for one second. This is a rant for sure and I'm going to take it easy since I'm not speaking - but typing so I can't express things using the talents of the great "orator" Barry Soetoro - I'll just have to type along but if you don't like nastiness or cuss-words, cursing or whatever you call "harsh language" do me a fuckin' favor and get lost right the fuck now - because you need to be a goddam grownup to hear what I'm about to tell you - as simply as possible.
But first - why? Why don't I quit all this bullshit? This fucking "blogging" like my entire set of acquaintances wishes I would? Why can't I walk around with a stupid fucking grin on my face and be "happy" and "deal with "it"" whatever "it" is?
Why don't I just shut the fuck up and deal with endless wars of occupation, robbery, resource grabbing, ocean polluting and the rest of this fuck-heap and just laugh like the rest of you pretend-people? Why can't I go to church, pay the rent, buy the groceries, the expensive gas, the tires, the oil, the bug-guy (I live in the woods), the fishing-license people, the NAZI police, the firemen, the post office, and every other sonofabitch that smiles with that idiotic hollow grin and goes to work every day like a mindless robot and just faces the fact that we are all fucked?
Why don't I pretend that wars don't matter? Why don't I pretend that the Democrats matter and the Republicans matter just like every other stupid fuck and pretend that via endless pointless finger-pointing and argument we will actually arrive anyfuckingwhere? Why don't I?
Why do I like fucking beavers more than most people I meet? Why have beavers actually contributed more to the beauty and life on this planet than humans after all? You know - those furry fuckers with the big teeth that leave a cone-shaped tree as evidence of their work felling the trunk into the water? Why?
Why did I watch the dumbest fuck in the universe, Barry Soetoro AKA Barack Hussein Obombya, OVERACTING last night, as evidenced by the idiotic staged hand motions designed to convey "honesty" as he lied his fucking bought-and-paid-for ass off?
Why did I bother watching that cheap skinny loser - lying again - the skill of the salesman - on fucking TELEVISION of course - the BOOB TUBE - to a waiting audience - telling more tall tales and fabrications as he set his banking buddies up to profit from yet another cataclysmic fuck-up of cosmic proportion?
Let's get this straight. I don't spend a lot of time dealing with liars. The ones in business I've dealt with - fuck - I got my fucking money in fucking advance. THAT'S HOW YOU DEAL WITH CROOKS. If you don't believe me - go deal with a goddam crook and don't get your money in advance - then try to collect it - then call me - otherwise shut the fuck up.
So - against my instincts - like a stupid girlfriend listening to the latest story from a cheating boyfriend - (but not quite I know he's a lying bastard) I turned on the C-SPAN website and listened to the skinny AFPAK-war - troops in Columbia-Iraqi war- continuing-drone-murdering-"commander in chief" run his stupid mouth about what I have no idea - then I turned it off because the pathetic excusing loser globalist was only doing one thing - telling me how to absorb yet another punishing and inexcusable blow - for .......uhm.........well maybe you can tell me.
Let's take a look at this fraud: I'll comment on this pussy scum traitor below - and remember I hate Bush more than this clown:
1. Recover and rebuild from a recession? - What's with the hand motion
2. An explosion "ripped through" a BP (BRITISH petroleum) rig - fuck the brits
3. More hand motion
4. He assembled a group of geniuses - who, by the way, haven't done shit.
5. He directed BP - Hmmmm - no he didn't they directed him because he is a puppet.
6. More hand motion - probably trained by his handlers - and boy is it getting old
7. "MAKE NO MISTAKE" (more hand motions) - hey Barry - shut the fuck up. Bush said "make no mistake" all the time which tells me you have the same speechwriters.
8. 30,000 personnel cleaning up the mess? Why don't you sent the head of BP, as in a previous post on this blog, down there to scrub the birds off until the oil is gone? Maybe they will understand what URGENCY means - as opposed to what they are doing now - which is eating the finest of foods and drinking better wine than Bud.
10. More hand motions of the "great orator" - demonstrating integrity - truth - and honesty - even though he's lied about everything - but keep talking and acting like you care Barry - you see - the stupid Americans will believe it if you keep it up long enough. NOT
11. OMG ! He's going to "meet" with the head of BP! Wow! Holy shit!
12. Restore the unique "beauty and bounty" of this region. ha ha h ahhahahahahahahahahaha.
13." I make that commitment tonight" the lying sack of shit says at 6:48. Oh thanks Barry - is that like you will have the most transparent government? Great - now I can "rest assured" that you won't lie THIS TIME.
14 FAKE LYING FRAUDULENT COWARDLY PUSSY=BARRY SOETORO.
15 He's established a "6 month moratorium" on deep water drilling - HALLELULIAH - 6 months - great! I'm so happy that a liar just promised me that he will fix an unfixable problem quickly after he gets his orders from British Petroleum
16. He says we need "better regulations" - what? Hey jackass - nobody followed the existing regulations you fucking idiot! What are you talking about? Are you sane?
17. The liar says "we have failed" - WHAT? Hey stupid - I DIDN'T FAIL - WE PUT YOU IDIOTS IN CHARGE AS OUR REPRESENTATIVES TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND YOU FUCKED UP. WHY ARE YOU SAYING "WE" ?????
18. Don't hit me with a stupid NWO carbon tax you cheap-suited salesman, Barack (BarrySoetoro) Obombya - you are the commander in chief - YOU have the office - YOU are responsible to DO SOMETHING! Quit the US bullshit you lyin' sack.
19. Dear Barack Obombya - go fuck yourself - you are so full of shit that my hand goes immediatly to the TV or radio dial and changes the station the moment I hear your lying voice. Thanks Mr. Transparancy - Mr. Anti-War, Mr. I love torture, Mr. no Habeas Corpus, Mr. Torture - go away and shut your fucking pie hole.
And one more thing Mr Prezifuck - about the Federal Reserve...lemme make this as easy as I can for the people you are lying to:
Given: There is no Federal Reserve Bank
Scenario: I mow Joe's lawn - he pays me one Oz. of silver
Federal Reserve Profit = Zero
Given: Federal Reserve Bank just came into existence - prints ONE DOLLAR and only one dollar for my use...
Scenario 2: I mow Joe's lawn - he pays me with THE Federal Reserve Note - loaned at 30% interest
Joe "borrows" the dollar from the Federal Reserve Bank since using gold or silver is illegal - only Federal Reserve Note is allowed:
Joe pays me with the dollar he "borrowed" from the FED
I get one dollar
The federal reserve gets 30 cents
Question: Where did the 30 cents come to pay the Federal Reserve Bank from since there is only ONE DOLLAR IN EXISTENCE?
Answer: The Federal Reserve prints another dollar and "lends" the thirty cents
We get ROBBED
OK - there's a rant - I don't have a lot of energy to keep railing against this "great orator" who wants to "shape our destiney" (with verbal emphasis) - I have to stop to .....
I have to vomit - please excuse me - this liar is too too much for me.
Oh - by the way - it's about god - at time = 16:07 - you see my friends - keep HOPING AND PRAYING TO GOD - AND RELY ON THE STRENGTH AND RESILIENCE IF WE RELY ON OUR STRENGTH AND RESILIENCE (camera backs off) - AND PAY MORE MONEY TO YOUR CORRUPT MURDERING LEADERS - BECAUSE THERE'S HARD TIMES COMING - WE WILL MAKE SURE OF IT - AND YOU NEED TO SUFFER MORE WHILE WE STUFF OUR POCKETS. HAVE A NICE DAY.

UPDATE JUNE 17, 2010 BP Shares Up 7% In Early London Trade After Spill-Fund Deal
" The report concluded that none of the victims were armed, that soldiers gave no warnings before opening fire and that the shootings were a "catastrophe" for Northern Ireland, leading to increased violence in subsequent years.
The 5,000-page report is based on evidence from 921 witnesses, 2,500 written statements and 60 volumes of written evidence."
Note: This is probably how the 911 evidence will be released - after enough time has passed for the criminals responsible to commit even more and more heinous crimes that overshadow the original - to where justice is never served.
" "Mr. Stearns asked Mr. McKay to resign," Cao said, referring to Rep. Cliff Stearns. "Well, in the Asian culture we do things differently. During the Samurai days, we just give you a knife and ask you to commit harakiri." "
Note: ...but not before they PAY UP! Oh and by the way - he can pay for the knife too!
Note: Great fun - as good of an explanation of things as any I've seen. In other words I don't believe anything.
Somebody went through a lot of trouble to make this video. Many implications are made that some people are superior to others due to divine intervention. Acceptance of such concepts means one may be put into a subordinate position to those who've somehow managed to place themselves in a higher position. Not a good idea if you ask me.
Secret brotherhoods on God's behalf always raise suspicions of ulterior motives in my mind. But I can see lots of people going along with such beliefs - even to their own detriment.
I liked this line:
"Humans can never catch up with light unless they, themselves, become light"
"BRUSSELS (EJP)---Israel and Turkey have a common interest, despite the current crisis around the Gaza flotilla events, to rebuild their ties, a former head of Mossad, Israel’s intelligence agency, said."
" High-value detainees captured during the Bush administration's "war on terror," who were subjected to brutal torture techniques, were used as "guinea pigs" to gauge the effectiveness of various torture techniques, a practice that has raised troubling comparisons to Nazi-era human experimentation. according to a disturbing new report released by Physicians for Human Rights, an international doctors' organization."
" The report says 145,000 Philadelphians ages 18 to 24 cannot meet the military's medical, moral and mental standards."
Note: This is funny - they have MORAL standards? The leaders are torturers. What standards can they possibly have? Ha ha ha ha ha ha.
Note: Looks like assault to me. .
By the way - perfect set up for some defensive work - left to the jaw maybe. Throat. Or get fancy with an under-the-arm twisteroosky.
What right does this "public servant" have to assault people?

" While in Mineweb's view such a move is unlikely, one needs to bear in mind that President Obama is a keen follower of Roosevelt's views and policies and that the very fact that some asset managers controlling huge volumes of money feel that such a move is possible is a significant factor - and one that is perhaps heightened by the huge amounts of money flowing into gold at the moment in both ETFs and bullion"
Note: If they could get away with it why wouldn't they do it? Been done before.
Note: I am so gawdammed impressed with this lady! Woo Hoo! Absolutely positively humbling! This is stateswomanship - if only our "representatives" and public serpents could fill her shoes. Maybe she'll come here and give that puppet Obama some lessons in leadership skills!
