Big Brother Update

So, these are things that litterally just happened yesterday, after I uploaded my final post regarding the police state. I really wanted to switch topics a little bit, but given that these just happened yesterday, I had to upload them.

First, your daily dose of the Police State:

And, on my way home from work last night, I heard this story on NPR marketplace (you can listen to the story if you click on the tab on the top-rightish part of the screen). Now, obviously this is about individuals, not governments, but it's still applicable. It's stories like these that make me wonder WHY on earth we have such a love affair with gadgetry and technology... I've been seriously perplexed by this obsession that we have since I was a little boy, and as it continues to grow at an exponential rate, it continues to baffle me. Everybody's so obsessed with the 'coolness' of technological innovations that they never stop to consider how easy it is to abuse. Back in college, I wrote an essay arguing against the frequently cited claim that 'technological innovation' will be the answer to all of our problems, like food production, population growth, disease, etc... Clearly, technology can solve some of these problems, but at what cost? I've dubbed this to be what I call 'the old woman who swallowed the fly' syndrome, which, I think it's a rather appropriate way to describe that mentality. But I digress, that's a rant I could spend a whole 'nother post on.

Lastly, I just wanted to get back to the economy for a bit...

Hmm... what does this remind me of?

Sounds like the makings of Grapes of Wrath 2 to me. And on that note, for those of you that didn't hear, Bernake announced yesterday that he was not going to raise interest rates. Let me make this perfectly clear: the Fed has 2 options right now... It can either raise interest rates (stifling any semblance of 'growth' to the US economy), or it WILL have to continue with Quantitative Easing (IE, 'printing' more 'money', thus driving up inflation even further). There are no other options... So, we can see that Bernake is taking us further down the path of inflation.

Also interesting to note, in response to the article I posted yesterday, we'll hit our debt ceiling around the middle of May, and if we don't raise it, we'll have enough money to pay our obligations until June/July before we run out of money. Interestingly enough, QE2 is set to run out around that same time... With congress being what it is today (which, by the way, saw an article (though I can't find it now) that congress has just a 9% approval rating), we're approaching a MAJOR cliff, and very quickly running out of time to address it. We almost had a shutdown over a couple dozen billion... now we're literally talking about TRILLIONS of dollars...

Turbulent times indeed. Better step up the preparation, cuz things could get rocky sooner than we thought.

Title Says it All

Treasury quietly plans for failure to raise debt ceiling

The last quote pretty much sums it up.

Police State and FEMA, part 2

Setting The Stage
So, shortly after posting part 1 of this two-part post, I ran across this video on RT, and figured it's an appropriate place to start this train of thought:

What's important to consider here is really stated in the first minute or so... That our government knowingly imprisoned innocent men, and will continue to do so, indefinitely, as recently ordered by President Obama himself as per the Preventive and Indefinite Detention proposal Obama first introduced in 2009. This is so outrageous that even Rachel Maddow had to rant about it! When you hold the previous video to these, it paints a rather interesting picture indeed:

The Rise of FEMA

So, according to this new law, fully sponsored and supported by the DHS, anyone who the government suspects may commit a crime can be detained indefinitely, without trial. According to DHS and Napolitano, political activists, conspiracy theorists, Ron Paul Supporters, Veterans, and other groups are "potential terrorists"... Yeah, it doesn't take a genius to see where this is going... either you agree with the state, or you go to jail (remember that "terrorism detection" training video I posted earlier??)

It only gets worse... The following videos list some of the other laws and executive orders passed by presidents all the way back to FDR (who, by the way, signed an executive order allowing for the detention of all Japanese Americans during WWII) to, more or less, establish FEMA…. But before we get into that, it’s important to know exactly what an Executive Order really is.

According to Wikipedia, an executive order is “an order issued by the President, the head of the executive branch of the federal government… The term "Executive Orders" and the numbered list of them were created in 1907, but U.S. Presidents have issued instructions that are retroactively labeled Executive Orders since 1789, usually to guide officers and agencies of the Executive branch in managing the operations within the Federal Government itself. Executive orders can have the full force of law if they are made in pursuance of certain Acts of Congress, some of which specifically delegate to the President some degree of discretionary power (delegated legislation). Other Executive Orders not authorized by Congress are claimed to have their authority for issuances based in a power inherently granted to the Executive by the Constitution. It is these cited or perceived justifications made by a President when authoring Executive Orders that have come under criticism for exceeding Executive authority and have been subject to legal proceedings even at various times throughout U.S. history concerning the legal validity or justification behind an order's issuance.”

So, even Wikipedia alludes to the potential unconstitutionality and overreaching power of an executive order. Here’s another definition, as defined by

“Executive Orders (EOs) are legally binding orders given by the President, acting as the head of the Executive Branch, to Federal Administrative Agencies. Executive Orders are generally used to direct federal agencies and officials in their execution of congressionally established laws or policies. However, in many instances they have been used to guide agencies in directions contrary to congressional intent.
Not all EOs are created equal. Proclamations, for example, are a special type of Executive Order that are generally ceremonial or symbolic, such as when the President declares National Take Your Child To Work Day. Another subset of Executive Orders are those concerned with national security or defense issues. These have generally been known as National Security Directives. Under the Clinton Administration, they have been termed "Presidential Decision Directives."
Executive Orders do not require Congressional approval to take effect but they have the same legal weight as laws passed by Congress. The President's source of authority to issue Executive Orders can be found in the Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution which grants to the President the "executive Power." Section 3 of Article II further directs the President to "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed." To implement or execute the laws of the land, Presidents give direction and guidance to Executive Branch agencies and departments, often in the form of Executive Orders.
Executive Orders are controversial because they allow the President to make major decisions, even law, without the consent of Congress. This, of course, runs against the general logic of the Constitution -- that no one should have power to act unilaterally. Nevertheless, Congress often gives the President considerable leeway in implementing and administering federal law and programs. Sometimes, Congress cannot agree exactly how to implement a law or program. In effect, this leaves the decision to the federal agencies involved and the President that stands at their head. When Congress fails to spell out in detail how a law is to be executed, it leaves the door open for the President to provide those details in the form of Executive Orders.”

Now that you know exactly what an EO is, here are a list of EO’s currently on the books today:

Executive Order Number 12148 created the Federal Emergency Management Agency that is to interface with the Department of Defense for civil defense planning and funding. An "emergency czar" was appointed. FEMA has only spent about 6 percent of its budget on national emergencies… I cannot say for certain where the rest of their money has gone, but according to many rumors I have heard, the bulk of their funding has been used for the preparation and construction of facilities to assure continuity of government in case of a major emergency, foreign or domestic. When you see the last video I show in this post, this really wouldn’t surprise you, though again, I do not know, nor can I verify, where the other 94% of their budget goes.

Executive Order Number 12656 appointed the National Security Council as the principal body that should consider emergency powers. This allows the government to increase domestic intelligence and surveillance of U.S. citizens and would restrict the freedom of movement within the United States and grant the government the right to isolate large groups of civilians. The National Guard could be federalized to seal all borders and take control of U.S. air space and all ports of entry. Here are just a few Executive Orders associated with FEMA that would suspend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. These Executive Orders have been on record for nearly 30 years and could be enacted by the stroke of a Presidential pen:

EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 allows the government to seize and control the communication media.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 (THIS IS A BIG ONE!) specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049 assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen year period.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 (THIS IS ANOTHER BIG ONE!) allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has broad powers in every aspect of the nation.

Don’t believe me? Well, you can go look them up for yourself right here, and see every EO that has been written to date.

 In order to emphasise how striking this is, here are a couple quick videos on the subject. Again, pay particular attention to EO 11921 and EO 11051, and think about what that potentially entails. Also, pay close attention to NSPD/HSPD 20 / 51.

And that's just up to 2007. Here's a look at what's happened since then (personal note, while this person seems to defend the right wing and be of more of a political slant than I like, the information is still enlightening. Again, I challenge you to look up these acts and EO's for yourself.. I haven't looked them –all- up yet, but I am familiar with 13528, which will come up again in the final video).

So where does this all eventually lead us? I'd like to leave you with a final mini-documentary that explores FEMA in greater detail. I’ve been familiar with FEMA and its gross miss-management of funding for a few years now, and I’ve heard the rumors of FEMA camps for about the same amount of time… Like many things, I initially dismissed it as conspiracy, but the more I actually stopped dismissing and started investigating, the more and more I’m not so comfortable writing it off any more. In fact, I’m very concerned.

I've watched several of Jesse's episodes, and usually, I find them entertaining and somewhat educational, but even I have a hard time believing -everything- he discusses in his shows. However, this episode in particular was very well done (I think) and I don't think he ever (seriously, anyway) crossed that line of getting 'too extreme'. Interestingly enough, while TRUTV continues to show other episodes in his series, they pulled this particular episode, and will not show it on their network again. It's the only episode that that's happened to, which, even for a guy like me, is fairly interesting to say the least. I suggest you watch it while you can, before they remove it on Youtube too.

Now, again, I don't suggest I know exactly where we're going, or that I know exactly what's going to happen... But I -do- know how to connect dots, and for me, these dots couldn't be any more connected if they were numbered and put in a child's coloring book.

Several posts ago, I told you about something called "Unified Quest 2011". Effectively a Pentagon "wargame", it's training the military to deal with maintaining civil order and dealing with the consequences of severe, prolonged economic collapse:

Google it for yourself... and ask yourself, how unrealistic does it all seem now? 

I'm not saying that any of this is for sure going to happen, but I know that the pieces are in place, and I know that the global domino's are starting to fall. Knowing what you've seen after this post... knowing how close we are to the edge of a serious economic collapse and witnessing the things that have already happened, knowing about FEMA and all the executive orders that are in place to impose upon us an unprecedented state of military control, and knowing that we already have the infrastructure in place to detain MASSIVE quantities of civilians, -and- that it has all happened before, ask yourself again, is it really that absurd, unreasonable, or 'crazy' to prepare? And more importantly, ask yourself where we draw the line, and what -you- are doing to take a stand..

Even Glenn Beck has a little bit of common sense every now and then:

The real reason we're in Libya: Banks, not Oil

So in my daily browsing of my usual channels this morning, I heard a rather astonishing fact on a radio program that I usually listen to: Prior to the war, Libya had a value-based currency (as opposed to a debt-based currency like ours and the rest of the UN countries). This value-based currency was backed with gold, and independent of the global financial banking system that has consumed most of the world.

Suddenly, things made a lot more sense. I recalled back to when the war first started, and I heard that one of the -very- FIRST things the Rebels did was agree to, and establish, a central banking system backed by the IMF. Before they built bases, organized troops, established leaders, built hospitals or munitions holdings, or any of the other number of practical first steps the 'rebels' could have taken, they established a friggin IMF central bank??? Seems outrageously insane, but that's -exactly- what happened.

And then I saw this article  just a few minutes later, from which the following is an excerpt (As a side note, while I have not posted about Jon Perkins yet, he's another individual who I respect very much. He's a self-proclaimed economic hitman, who's job, in a nut shell, was to go to 3rd world countries and make economic arrangements with them that would greatly benefit the US, usually to the detriment of that country. He's a fascinating man with lots of amazing stories, and I greatly respect him for his work in recent years).

"While many of the rationalizations describe resources, especially oil, as the reasons why we should be in that country, there are also an increasing number of dissenting voices. For the most part, these revolve around Libya’s financial relationship with the World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), and multinational corporations.

According to the IMF, Libya’s Central Bank is 100% state owned. The IMF estimates that the bank has nearly 144 tons of gold in its vaults. It is significant that in the months running up to the UN resolution that allowed the US and its allies to send troops into Libya, Muammar al-Qaddafi was openly advocating the creation of a new currency that would rival the dollar and the euro. In fact, he called upon African and Muslim nations to join an alliance that would make this new currency, the gold dinar, their primary form of money and foreign exchange. They would sell oil and other resources to the US and the rest of the world only for gold dinars.

The US, the other G-8 countries, the World Bank, IMF, BIS, and multinational corporations do not look kindly on leaders who threaten their dominance over world currency markets or who appear to be moving away from the international banking system that favors the corporatocracy. Saddam Hussein had advocated policies similar to those expressed by Qaddafi shortly before the US sent troops into Iraq.

In my talks, I often find it necessary to remind audiences of a point that seems obvious to me but is misunderstood by so many: that the World Bank is not really a world bank at all; it is, rather a U. S. bank. Ditto, its closest sibling, the IMF. In fact, if one looks at the World Bank and IMF executive boards and the votes each member of the board has, one sees that the United States controls about 16 percent of the votes in the World Bank – (Compared with Japan at about 7%, the second largest member, China at 4.5%, Germany with 4.00%, and the United Kingdom and France with about 3.8% each), nearly 17% of the IMF votes (Compared with Japan and Germany at about 6% and UK and France at nearly 5%),and the US holds veto power over all major decisions. Furthermore, the United States President appoints the World Bank President."

So, there you have it. Many, many people, including former military and CIA individuals, have claimed that the US was responsible for beginning the rebel uprisings in the first place. Now we know why... You can pretty much sum it up like this: 'Play by our rules, sell your people and their freedoms to the international banking cartel, and we'll give you guns, food, and support... we'll win this war for you.'Qaddfi was too independent, and wanted a better future for the people of his country and region, free from the Tyranny of the western world. Like Obama himself said, our interests, and the interests of our allies, were at stake, only now we know it's not just the oil he was talking about.

Police State and FEMA, part 1

So I'm going to do this in a few different parts... Mostly because the topics vary slightly, and I want to do a little more research for the second installment of this post.

As mentioned before, one of the things that I'm increasingly concerned about is the potential for a militarized, police state here in the US. As you will see, the pieces are well in place, and all we really need is for the final domino to fall. "Terrorists" gave us the TSA, the patriot act, a host of outrageous executive orders, and stripped us of several of our liberties. People must understand that this is a gradual erosion of our rights, our will, and our strength of spirit. To cook a frog, you can't just throw him in boiling water, you have to heat up the water gradually with the frog still in it. With every command they give, we kneel and submit... with every step forward they take, we take one more back. This isn't about the TSA shoving their hands down my pants, or the FDA cracking down on little girls selling lemonade or girl scout cookies, or even the DHS being able to shutdown our farms and confiscate our food... It's about where we draw the line. When do we finally say enough is enough?

The following documentary highlights some recent examples of what I just described. Though I don't agree with every single one of his opinions 100%, the film is still very powerful, and should be outrageous to everybody who still values personal freedom and the little liberties that we used to enjoy and take for granted.

The following incident following Katrina in New Orleans in which the police/coast guard forcibly disarmed american citizens. Now, I do believe that the second amendment should be kept in check, but I also believe that we should never surrender our second amendment rights.

(Interviews and personal testimonies of the events)

This, to me, is one of the most shocking unreported events in recent history. The G20 was held in Pittsburgh in 2009, and there was a massive, peaceful demonstration against it. The police, coast guard, boarder patrol, and other miliatary officials rolled onto the scene, stating that it was an "unlawful assembly" and ordered all the protesters to leave. When they didn't, they started attacking unarmed civilians with batons, riot gear, gas, and the LRAD (Long Range Acoustic Device). Of course, our 1st amendment guarantees we, the people, the right to peaceably assemble, and of the dozens of videos of this event that I have watched, not ONCE did a protester act in violence first. I've even seen footage of them attacking a girl as young as 16 or 17 from the looks of it as she backed away in submission. Again, this stuff is so surreal it's almost incomprehensible that it's happening under our noses, with the media never even giving it the time of day. But this isn't a video game or a movie... this is real life, and I'm sorry to say it paints a pretty bleak future. I'm only going to share one video of this event, but there are tons on youtube. If you're so inclined, browse and watch a few for yourself... I think you'll be just as disgusted as I am.

And, just for fun, here's a few quick vids of some of the other devices they're coming out with. They track your phones, your emails, and your internet history, scan your licenses, listen to your calls, and keep you filed in a 'terrorist database'. Now, they're watching you from the skies too. What a wonderful Orwellian world we live in.

(they just launched one of these in my home state of Utah... a little bit different in design, but similar concept).

Lastly, I wanted to post a link to a feature-length documentary from Alex Jones. It's a bit dry and drags on at times, but it's still worth watching if you have the time to spare and are interested in pursuing the mater further. It covers the instances I just mentioned in greater detail and lots of things that I didn't. Again, I don't agree with all the opinions expressed in this video 100%, but it's hard to disagree with the raw footage that it depicts.

Finally, a rather poignant speech that sums it all up rather perfectly. Until next time...

Do you ever feel like you're in a dream?

Sometimes the things going on in the world around us seem so surreal that it's almost impossible to truly digest, process, and understand it all. Economic collapse, environmental catastrophes, diseases, nuclear radiation, mass poisonings, market manipulations, riots, food shortages, inflation, wealth transfers, police states... it never seems to end, and it seems like everywhere you turn there's another coverup, more corruption, and more bad news. The science fiction of yesterday is the reality of today... We have to open our eyes and see the world for what it really is. We live in the Matrix of our own development... our own alternative reality, where people care more about their video game characters or the reality stars on TV than they care about their own lives, their own governance, and the future of their children.

We have a choice... "Choose the blue pill, and the story ends. You wake in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. Choose the red pill, and see how deep the rabbit hole really goes." ~ The Matrix

Choose the red pill. Share this blog. Talk to friends and family. Do whatever you can to stand up for yourself, your loved ones, and the way of life that you believe in. Never submit, and never silence yourself.

Economic Update

Figured I'd lump these articles and videos together regarding the state of the economy that were released this weekend. Nothing -extremely- substantial, but still worthwhile if you follow this kinda thing.

In other news, silver is just shy of 50 now, and shot up by about 1.50 within 24 hours yesterday. Despite dropping a little today, it's well on it's way to breaking 50 any day now.

On the iPhone

Just another quick update regarding the iPhone "scandal". Frankly, the only thing scandalous about this story is how many people are SURPRISED by it. I mean, seriously people... wake the fuck up.

This is why I don't, and never will, have a smart phone. Of course, if/when they get the REALID act passed, then we won't even have the option to opt out of this kind of tracking by choosing not to buy a smartphone.

Gerald Celente on Alex Jones 4/21

So I know that some of you are more familiar with both Alex Jones and/or Gerald Celente than others, but I wanted to post this for those of you that aren't.

Gerald Celente is one of my economic heros. I've been listening to him for about a year now, and he's been freakishly spot on with his trends and predictions (going back for the last 15 or so years from some of the articles and videos I've read). His last major headline trend was "off with their heads 2.0", where he predicted the uprisings in Europe and the Middle East several months before Egypt and Tunisia happened. It's because of his advice that I got invested in Silver, and was -trying- to convince people in my family to buy gold back when it was still 600 an ounce. I love listening to him, and he's one of the few people that I very, very rarely disagree with.

Alex Jones is another one of my favorite individuals, who I'm pretty sure I've commented about on here before. This isn't so much about conveying anything inparticular as much as just sharing an interview with two people who I appreciate.

 Interestingly enough, he commented on how rigged the political system is, and how dangerous the illusion of democracy is (which I obviously just vented about a little while ago). He also mentions how he's supportive of a Ron Paul / Ralph Nadar presidency, which I've expressed my favor of multiple times. I'd strongly suggest anyone who follows this blog to look into Gerald a little more, because he's a very intelligent man with some great, and freakishly accurate insights.

Dr Helen Caldicott - Fukushima Disaster- You won't hear this on the Main Stream News (repost)

Saw this and thought that it was worth sharing:

Your vote don't count cuz they count the votes

I saw this testimony a little while back, but ran across it again this morning and I figured I would share.

Now, I'm not saying that the 2004 election was rigged. I'm also not saying that the 2000 election was rigged (though, if you look at the statistical evidence, it's very obvious that a -lot- of people ended up voting for someone that they didn't intend to.. how much of that was intentional is another story). This isn't so much a post to suggest a conspiracy as it is to get people to think about a much deeper issue.

In America, we're always told that if we don't like the way our government is run, that -we- have the power to change it, through the voting system. After all, we are a democracy (well, technically not, but anyway...) and we, the people, have the power to change the course of government if we don't like where it's going.

I want you to think about that notion, and ask yourself how much you think that that really holds true today. As the title of this post suggests, it's not the people who vote, but the people who -count- the votes that really matter. And with the voting becoming more digitalized, with several areas already getting rid of a traditional paper vote (and thus, a hard receipt), what kind of a democracy are we setting ourselves up for? In my 25 years I can think of at least a dozen examples I've read about where votes in other countries have been corrupted and compromised... Clearly, if other governments can do it, ours can too... unless you still believe that America is a moral and righteous country. Yet even though more and more people are awakening to the overwhelming corruption laden in our political system, these people still have inexplicable amounts of faith in that very same system, naively believing that they can still change it when comes time to vote (you'd think that, by now, Obama would have taught them otherwise) In my opinion, THAT faith and naivety is a real danger, and a real threat, because it pacifies people, and gives them the delusion that they still have -some- power, and some hope. But the truth is, we don't get to decide our presidents or our politicians, or our lobbyists and our bankers... IF we're lucky, we get the choice between two individuals who have been preselected and preapproved, and by the time they make it that far, already have millions and millions of dollars worth of 'donations' (IE obligations) to special interest groups to represent. The truth is, we DO have power... we have a LOT of it, but we're powerless if we continue to exist in the system that they have evolved. In Vegas, the house always wins, because they designed and control the system... Do you think government is any different, and is any more altruistic or uncorrupted?

Why I don't have a Smartphone / Police State Intro

I don't have a lot of time today, and saddly enough came across a lot of interesting things to upload today, but this little quicky will hafta do for now.

Your iPhone Is Tracking Your Location History

And, in other news, cops can now download all your data from your phone. All contacts, all texts, all pictures, all everything... for no reason at all. Even though they "don't use it for anything". Yeah... then why the hell download it???

This hits on a topic that I'm becoming more and more concerned about, even, quite possibly, moreso than the impending economic collapse: The Policed States of America. Every day (it seems) more and more utterly shocking, and literally almost -unbelievable- stories pop up that showcase how the US is becoming more and more of a Police State Society. It utterly sickens me, and has me very concerned... -especially- in the midst of such turbulent economic times. I'm planning on doing a much more comprehensive post on this issue, but I found this video today that is utterly fucking hilarious until you realize that it's actually meant to be taken seriously. Interestingly enough, when I was somewhere else on the internet, I actually sad an add for the TSC, and how they were training people to get their degrees in "Terrorism Surveillance". I actually thought it was a joke at first, but then I realized it was actually 100% legitimate. Well, as legitimate as something like that could ever be, anyway.

Unfortunately, that's obviously been edited to remove Alex Jones comments, but it's still quite interesting to say the least... Especially considering the fact that over 1,000,000 people were on the suspected terrorist list in 2009... god knows what it is now! There have been several documented cases of people being put on that list for doing little more than supporting Ron Paul or subscribing to alternative media outlets (which the DHC recently said it's going to launch a 1 billion dollar program to counter "terrorism supporting alternative media" in this country)... combine this with recent executive orders that allow police to detain suspected terrorists without doing anything wrong or giving them any of their constitutional rights (as I will explain in said future posts) and you quickly see where this is going....

If you're not one of the sheeple, then you're one of the terrorists. Land of the free indeed.

Gaddafi: The Great Tyrant?

So, ironically, after posing to a good friend last night that I was curious to know 1) what Gaddafi had done in the past, -exactly-, to bestow upon him the title of a crazed, anti-humanitarian tyrant, and 2) how many people in Libya were supporting the Rebel forces vs. how many people were supportive of Gaddafi, which, of course, are questions that are not explored by the mass media at all, I came across this rather interesting video today.

I'm trusting that at least one person inparticular will find this as interesting as I did ;-)

Edit: Said person almost simultaneously sent me this article for my consideration. I'm passing it along to you... definitely worth the read:

Africa: The Lies Behind the West's War on Libya

Fresh Meat Superbugs

Just wanted to share this before I forgot... it's an interesting read, to say the least.

With superbugs contaminating fresh meat, the truth comes out about the FDA Food Safety Bill

Fluoride: Mass Poisoning and Dumbification (my little mini-series)

I have always been skeptical of water fluoridation, even when I was a young boy. Most of that I can, fortunately, attribute to my parents, who even then held the belief that fluoride was somehow responsible for making people, for lack of a better word, dumber. Though I was always aware of these arguments, and skeptical of the reasons for promoting wide-scale fluoridation, I, like many people, never did anything about it, and never paid it any serious mind... Until recently.

In doing some of my searches, I came across a video that greatly disturbed me. I've learned enough in recent years to acknowledge that all human beings lie, and that governments, like religions, scientists, unions, and any other organization, must inherently lie as well, because these organizations are, ultimately, comprised of nothing more than human beings, subject to the flaws and fallacies that we all have. However, the non-inclusive list that I just mentioned are in a unique position that most human beings are not... They have an agenda, and they have the power, means, and interests to advance that agenda. In my opinion, then, knowing all this, it is incredibly naive to assume that any one of these organizations always tells the truth, or even always has your best interest at heart.

That being said, I couldn't ignore the evidence in front of me any longer. Water fluoridation is, like many other things, including the chemtrails, the mercury in our immunizations, the hormones in our food, and the chemicals in our water, an intentional and deliberate effort to promote SOME kind of agenda. I'm not going to say what I think that is, though I do have my thoughts. Consider this, though... One of the main compounds in the chemicals they use to make the 'fluoride' that they put in our water is identical to one of the main ingredients used in Prozac (fluoxetene Hydrochloride) and Sarin Nerve Gas (Isopropyl-Methyl-Phosphoryl Fluoride). And I ask you... why would the government want to feed the population drugs akin to anti-depressants, that will knowingly make them, among other things, more timid and placid... In the context of many other things, it all begins to make sense, and you realize that this is just one more link in the chain.

Anyway, without further ado:

A good little micro-documentary that should really be an eye opener for the direction we're heading. It features two of my personal economic hero's (Gerald Celente and Peter Schiff), so you know it's gotta be good.

America's Spending Problem: War

Yet -another- quick little video I found on RT that puts military spending in perspective.

Depleted Uranium Bombs being used in Libya

Sounds perfectly humanitarian to me!

Some stuff on income inequality

As a fledgling economist, I always found the concept of "Reganomics", or "Trickle-down", "supply side" economics to be a rather perplexing enigma. While admittedly these supply siders make a compelling argument that, logically speaking, makes sense on a piece of paper, it's pretty clear that those theories don't actually hold water when they're actually applied in the real world. And I think we all know why that's the case.

I ran across this video this weekend, and I wanted to share it, along with some other information that I've come across regarding the growing income gap here in America. As mentioned before, this is a subject that I've actually done a pretty decent amount of research on, and even wrote a rather detailed paper about for one of my economics classes in college (which I should really try to find, since it had some great information in it (if I do say so myself).

Unfortunately, the video is rather partisan... and though Republicans are the typical champions for Reganomics and giving tax cuts to the wealthy, Democrats have been just as guilty for playing into this charade as the Republicans have, if to a slightly lesser extent. And while Obama's plan for reducing the deficit (which is NOT the same as the debt, by the way) -sounds- like a lot more compassionate and reasonable plan than Ryan's, we should really know by now that Obama's not going to do a damn thing that he says he's going to do, so I personally aint going to hold my breath.

Anyway, I digress, here's the video and article:

Separate but unequal: Charts show growing rich-poor gap

I'll see if I can't find that paper that I wrote and upload it later.

Food Prices and Food Shortages

A recent article from the guys at economiccollapse:

 They provide great statistics and sources that cite them so you can do further investigation yourself if you're so inclined. They're a great resource for anyone concerned about our current economic situation, or just for any new-junkie. 

And, just for fun, a related video:

While we're on the subject of war...

I've come across several speeches and testimonies against our various different occupations, but these two really stood out as rather exceptional to me. They're short, and very powerful, so please watch and listen.

We are the terrorists.

On Military Spending

These were some interesting stories on RT today.

Perhaps the only thing surprising out of these was that only 51% of Americans want to cut military spending. Granted, that's a SIGNIFICANTLY higher proportion than even just a year ago, but I don't understand how anyone can realize how absurd military and pentagon spending in this country is and not be supportive of cutting it.

Oh wait, most people -don't- realize how absurd it is... they're too busy watching American Idol, and the mainstream media is too busy reporting on Charlie Sheen to talk about anything important.

And yes, even though those last two videos start the same way, they have different interviews.

Somewhere, Eisenhower is out there saying "I told you so".

What in the World are they Spraying?

I just watched this documentary last night. While I've been familiar with the chem-trail cover up for years, this little film definitely opened my eyes, and gave me a much clearer understanding of what was really going on with them. And yes, I'm very aware of the difference between a chemtrail and a contrail. How anyone can actually believe that the water-vapor of contrails could sit there and linger for several hours and spread across the sky without dissipating is truly beyond me... not to mention that it's only military planes and personal planes that produce them and not passenger planes.

For those of you who're curious about yet another government cover-up of a huge environmental catastrophe, I'd highly recommend it.

Here's the trailer:

And here's the full movie:

Remember Building 7

For those of you that don't know, building 7 is the third building that went down on September 11, 2001. The 'official' reason? 2 small fires that were burning on one of the top and middle floors. However, this is structurally impossible, as over 1,400 engineers and architects have testified. Footage of the building reveals that it collapses in a quintessentially 'demolition' style fashion. This is the movement to reveal the truth about what happened on September 11th, particularly regarding the destruction of building 7. Please watch, and please support.

Pentagon and Army Preparing for Economic Collapse

So there it is, out in plain sight. This news story focused on this 'war-game' scenario in the context of some sort of economic attack from China (which is definitely possible), but obviously the same scenario would apply if the economy of the US were to have a sudden and severe collapse. So, I ask you, why would the Pentagon be training the army to deal with the consequences of a wide-spread severe economic collapse if they didn't at least consider it to be a potential threat to our country in the near future? Suddenly gives you a lot more insight as to what all those FEMA camps might be for, doesn't it? (information on that coming in future posts).

The Madness of a Lost Society (2)

Actually, this is the first one. A few days ago I posted the sequel to this video, but I recently found the first one and thought that I should post it here.  Some pretty good points made here... And people call me crazy for stalking up on guns and ammo.

Death of the American Dream

Yet another news story on income inequality and our impending doom, this one by Newshour.

New World Order: Still think it can't happen?

Major financial players from around the world are debating the future of the global economy in the iconic US town of Bretton Woods. The summit held by billionaire philanthropist George Soros is focusing on the place emerging nations will take in the new world order. RT’s Lauren Lister reports from the venue.

American Dream

Bar none, one of the best videos that you can watch about the economic collapse. Entertaining, simple, but educational, this will briefly introduce several MAJOR concepts that are all true, and are responsible for getting us where we are today.

PLEASE watch and share.

If I had a dollar every time I felt like this...

I could buy a few more ounces of silver, that's for damn sure!

And you thought you still had privacy

A little exposure on how the government intercepts, scans, and stores most e-mail messages.

Oh yeah, and they store your damn tweets too.

The Madness of a Lost Society

Please watch.... And please Google "Unified Quest 2011".

The reality detatched American

You know it's bad when even Glenn Beck gets it right

Edward Griffin is an EXTREMELY intelligent man. He was one of the first to uncover the truth about the fed, and he's been investigating and spreading other truths as well (the most recent being the chem-trail cover ups).

Regarding Evictions

Goes along nicely with the 60 minute video I linked yesterday, don't you think?

My favorite part is the person who was arrested for standing on the sidewalk nearby. God Bless America!

Federal budget explained only as Oreo's can

A  (maybe overly) simple representation, but a powerful point. Food for thought.

If these don't piss you off, nothing will.

Just some quick vids that I dug up awhile back that I found to be particularly enraging. I hope you find them as 'entertaining' as I did.
