Fairly Unbalanced, by Edgar J. Steele

Fairly Unbalanced

I just got off the phone with New Hampshire GOP headquarters. A NH GOP official confirmed a press release from its chairman, Fergus Cullen, which unequivocally supports the story about Ron Paul’s Nov 6 forum exclusion by Fox News. Unequivocally! They claimed always to have worked directly with Ron Paul headquarters in getting him included, however, just as they continue to do at this moment. The press release is so new that it is not yet posted upon the NH GOP web site, but Ron Paul has its full text up on his site already.

Said the GOP’s Mr. Cullen, in part: “The New Hampshire Republican Party has notified FOX News of our position, and we are in ongoing discussions with FOX News about having as many candidates as possible participate in the forum scheduled for January 6.”

Just a Weekend Affair

A huge controversy arose over the weekend as various web pundits, bloggers, blowhards and, even, the venerable WorldNetDaily.com all called Ron Paul a liar, claiming there never was such a forum and, just in case there was, that it was cancelled, anyhow, and how could an organization be so incompetent or its leadership so out of touch? Based upon these allegations, a great many Ron Paul supporters seem to have jumped ship.

Time to climb back aboard, folks. You’ve been had. Here’s how:

Yesterday, the widely-followed Alex Jones’ Prison Planet jumped in with both feet by republishing a Nolan Chart blog, Ron Paul Not Excluded from Fox Debate, by William Westmiller. To his credit, Alex Jones now has reversed himself and Mr. Westmiller has “revised” his blog entry in a none-too-clear fashion, though clearly reversing himself, nonetheless. Oddly, Mr. Westmiller counts himself as one of Dr. Paul’s supporters (with friends like this…).

Another Nolan Chart blogger, John Armstrong, increased the disinformation level with his Ron Paul’s Fox News Fiasco: The Spin Starts Here. Mr. Armstrong does not yet appear either to have corrected his misreporting or explained the basis for it.

What is it with this Nolan Chart web site, anyway?

Oh, Joe! Not You, Too. Say It Isn’t So, Joe.

Yesterday, WorldNetDaily.com also joined in, beating up Dr. Paul with Ron Paul Excluded from Debate? Not Exactly, though with no attribution. Several hours ago, I emailed Joe Farah, WND’s publisher, and asked if he intended to issue a retraction. No reply as yet and no retraction, as such, but Joe just has posted a new story: Ron Paul Not Invited to Fox News Forum, with no mention made of yesterday’s grotesquely-wrong article.

The Faux News Channel

Today’s Baltimore Sun confirmed the original story of exclusion by Fox News prior to the NH GOP’s press release: http://weblogs.baltimoresun.com/news/politics/blog/2007/12/ron_paul_indeed_outfoxed_for_n.html

Are you mad yet? I am. But, then, I’m always mad about something, it seems.

Though inundated with copies of those false claims, I responded to all comers with, “Just wait and see.” For each and every such claim I got, however, I was gratified to be copied onto hundreds of complaints directed at Fox News.

Well, we have waited. We have seen. The only question now remaining is: Just how guilty is Fox News? Did Fox News simply exclude Dr. Paul from the Nov 6 forum (and continue to exclude him, what’s more) or are they at the base of what clearly was a false disinformation campaign over the weekend?

We don’t call it the Faux News Channel for nothing, after all.

Fairly Unbalanced

Fox News, far from being “Fair and Balanced,” actually is Fairly Unbalanced, as it turns out. We Report, You Decide? Hah! More like: We Decide, You Shut Up (guess I’ve been watching too much O’Reilly again).

It is high time for Fox News to back down and invite Dr. Paul to its little shindig. You only thought I was outraged before!

There is every indication, from the blowback and bounces, that we managed to blow the Fox News server out of the water over the weekend with our outraged emails. The NH GOP, too, acknowledged having been overwhelmed with the thousands upon thousands of phone calls and emails in support of Dr. Paul. They claim not to be guilty. Fair enough. Fox News sure as hell is guilty, though.

Let’s see what we can do now, folks. The NH GOP is on board, so let’s leave them alone. Fox News has yet to get the message, though, it seems. A few have suggested to me that you need more Fox News names, phone numbers, fax numbers and email addresses. Well, here you go:

(There is just a little redundancy in the following list, cobbled together from several sources, but Fox News never has complained about redundancy before. And, remember, they can delete emails wholesale, but somebody has to sort through all the voicemails.)

Ron Paul indeed Out-Foxed (for now)

Ron Paul indeed Out-Foxed (for now)

Jason George
Baltimore Sun
Monday, December 31, 2007

Fergus Cullen, chairman of the New Hampshire State Republican Committee, confirmed Sunday evening to the Tribune that, yes, there will be a televised Fox News presidential candidate forum on Jan. 6, and yes, Rep. Ron Paul was not invited when the other candidates were a week or so ago.

“My understanding is that five candidates to that point had been offered spots but the event is still coming together,” Cullen said.

The candidates invited to the forum/debate – whatever you want to call it – will be Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Gov. Mike Huckabee, Sen. John McCain, Gov. Mitt Romney and Sen. Fred Thompson.

Cullen said the event, which is set to take place two days before the New Hampshire primary, will be held in the afternoon or evening at St. Anselm College in Goffstown, N.H. When asked if Fox News, which is co-sponsoring the debate with the NH party, planned to invite Paul later, Cullen said he didn’t know.

“It’s really premature. Just the other day candidates started to accept invitations.”

On Saturday, Paul called Fox News “scared of me.” They “don’t want my message to get out, but it will,” according to The Boston Globe’s Primary Source blog.

“They are propagandists for this war and I challenge them on the notion that they are conservative.”

On Sunday night, Paul spokesman Jesse Benton said the campaign remains angry, and in the dark.

“We have not heard anything else today,” he said. “[Fox] continues to ignore our calls.”

The Essence of Liberty #212, Who ratified the Constitution: “The American people” or the sovereign states?

December 31, 2007 Leave a comment
The Essence of Liberty: Part 212 

Compiled by 

Dr. Jimmy T. (Gunny) LaBaume 

A Summary of Gutzman, Kevin R.C. The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Constitution 

(The book is available from the Ludwig von Mises Institute at http://www.mises.org) 

Chapter 3: Selling the Constitution 

Who ratified the Constitution: “The American people” or the sovereign states?

Madison’s contributions to The Federalist are just as perplexing as Hamilton’s. For example: In No. 39 he (Madison) decides that the proposed government is to be neither national nor federal, but some sort of hybrid. However, this is impossible unless the term “sovereignty” means “authority in a given area.”

On the issue of ratification procedure, Madison says, “The constitution is to be (ratified by) the people…not as individuals composing one…nation; but as composing the distinct and independent States…It is to be…(ratified by) the several States, derived from the supreme authority …of the people…The act…will not be a national but a federal act.” He goes on to explain, “Were the people regarded…as…one nation, the will of the majority…would bind the minority…So, each state…is considered as a sovereign body independent of…others and only…bound by its own voluntary act.” This is clear enough up to this point. But…

He goes on to say that Congress is partly national and partly federal because it has one house appointed by the state and another by population. Using the same “logic,” he declares that presidential elections through the appointment of an electoral college are also partly national and partly federal. He also makes several other similarly confusing statements.

Nothing in the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation or the Constitution’s ratification process allowed the American people to form a national government. Before the states could have made themselves into a nation, they would have had to cease to exist at some point in time. They never did that.

“When did an ‘American People’ ever assent to or ratify anything?”

Now, About That Ron Paul Exclusion….???

December 31, 2007 1 comment

http://www.ConspiracyPenPal.com   This is the only source for the absolutely free, somewhat regular and almost always peripatetic newsletter from Edgar J. Steele, occasionally referred to as “Attorney for the Damned.”

   Steele always discusses politically-incorrect issues of general import and often illustrates his colorful and lively ranting with aspects of the higher-profile cases being handled by his law firm.

   Frequent updates and in-depth reports on some cases, designed to provide a viewpoint rarely afforded those who aren’t actually sitting at counsel table during trial.

New Nickel Rants: Ron Paul or Revolution (Dec 16)… BernieBucks (Dec 5)… New Columns: You Only Think You Own Much of Anything (Dec 23)… The New Dollar (Dec 14)… The Sky Already has Fallen (Dec 11)…

December 30 Update…

Yes, I have heard and read the reports that the Ron Paul Campaign HQ staff (and Ron Paul, himself) are wrong about his exclusion from a Nov 6 forum, claiming it has been cancelled.  I’ve asked and am awaiting word from Ron Paul Campaign HQ, but so far their press release stands (as of 6:30 pm ET).The good news:  Near as I can tell, we blew Fox News’ server off line last night after I sent out a list email expressing outrage over Dr. Paul’s reported exclusion from the NH forum, together with a request that people pound them and the NH GOP until they relented.

Yes, Faux News deserves everything it has been getting this weekend, but enough is enough if, in fact, they don’t deserve it this time.  Let them get a sense of the business end of unfairness for a change, I say, which is why they get no apologies from me, regardless.

Subject: Fox News and the NH GOP exclude Ron Paul from the NH forum
So you think you have received lots of emails protesting your exclusion of Ron Paul from the televised Fox News pre-NH Presidential Primary Forum set for Jan 6 on the campus of St. Anselm College?  You haven’t even begun to see email.

Nor have you seen the power of the Internet when turned into a boycott, quite aside from the numerous issues of Federal Election law media access violations on your parts.

 
All Dr. Paul ever has sought is fair play – a level playing field.  Yet you insist upon rigging the game.
 
Ron Paul is the only Presidential candidate in the past century who has been hoisted up spontaneously by the people of America and proclaimed to be our champion, time and again, by being first in fund raising, first in straw polls, first in telephone polls, first in tv polls and first in on-line polls.
 
Yet, he is the very man whom you deem not important enough to include in the final pre-election New Hampshire debate!!!
 
Are you guys out of your minds?  You don’t really think we are going to let you get away with this, do you?
 
So much for “Live Free or Die.”  Turn in your license plates, you hypocrites! 
 
Of course, by now we all just laugh out loud when we hear “Fair and balanced,” or “We report, you decide,” from the dark forces at the Faux News Channel.  In fact, it has gotten so bad that, if I am unsure how to feel about an issue, all I need do is tune in to the Faux News Channel and then adopt the opposite of whatever the evil emperor’s minions are pushing.
 
I’m taking the liberty of bccing this to almost 20,000 of my closest friends throughout America.  You don’t mind, do you?  I’m sure that many of them will want to share with you, too.
 
Edgar J. Steele

NAFTA: “The silence by ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and FAUX (FOX) “news” networks has been deafening” By: Devvy

NAFTA CEMENTING A NORTH AMERICAN UNION

By: Devvy
December 31, 2007

“Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” Thomas Paine, The American Crisis, No. 1 December 19, 1776

Millions of Americans are now aware of the plan for a North American Union (NAU)/Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP). This awareness came via the Internet thanks to Phyllis Schafly and Dr. Jerome Corsi (video). Lou Dobbs has given it an extraordinary amount of exposure during his shows on CNN; the rest of CNN ignores it. The silence by ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and FAUX (FOX) “news” networks has been deafening. The attack by legends in their own minds, i.e., pusillanimous individuals like Michael Medved, have been remarkable and a shame upon their so-called profession.

If you are not familiar with this final step in the complete and total destruction of our sovereign republic, I strongly recommend you go to this web site and watch this fully documented and factual slide presentation on this plan which I call treason. The definition of treason is: disloyalty or treachery to one’s country or it’s government. Treason is any attempt to overthrow the government or impair the well-being of a state to which one owes allegiance; the crime of giving aid or comfort to the enemies of one’s government. I don’t believe it is inappropriate to use the word treason when it comes to this plan to integrate America into one region with all the trappings of totalitarian government.

As someone who fought hard against NAFTA when I ran for Congress against a liar named CON-gressman Wally Herger (R-CA), I knew back in 1993 how devastating NAFTA would be to our three most important job sectors that made America great: ag, manufacturing and industrial. CON-gressman Herger said he would vote against it. He wrote a letter to the California Ag Bureau six days before the vote laying out why it was so dangerous and then just like the high paid hooker he is, voted for it. Herger admitted he never read NAFTA as most members of Congress also did not. These lackeys voted on a huge trade agreement, but never read it. Despite massive opposition at the time, this unconstitutional treaty was passed by a stupid, greedy Congress and signed into law by Marxist Bill Clinton. While I applaud Rep. Marcy Kaptur’s bill (click here), never mind re-negotiating or get out – GET US OUT! This is the vehicle to implement a North American Union.

We are now starting to see the provisions kicking in at hyper speed to finally destroy these united States of America and let me lay it out crisp and clear:

The destruction of NAFTA was felt within the first 18 months and has continued to destroy our sovereignty and job bases ever since. In the first few years, over 4,000 factories closed down, small towns became dying towns. To date MILLIONS of jobs have been lost with more all the time because of the evil called out sourcing. America continues to lose in the fair trade arena; instead we are steadily being crushed by the evil of “free” trade. In 1995, American businesses were notified by the IRS that that under NAFTA, they would have to make all of their federal employment taxes by electronic transfer; view this document here. Why? The same reason we the people are being taxed to death to pay for new infrastructure inside Mexico: one world government. One worker base of three countries merged into one region, all under the same homogenized laws.

Despite the massive invasion of illegal aliens crossing over our borders, neither Marxist Bill Clinton or globalist George Bush, made any effort to stop it and millions of Americans – especially post 911 – simply could not understand why Bush has steadfastly refused to do what President Eisenhower did so effectively. Many of us who have been in the trenches for decades knew and now millions more know: a North American Union means just that. No borders, no sovereign nations, just one big region for these diabolically evil men and women who lust for raw power to rule over us and they don’t care who they destroy on their path to supreme imperialism.

Earlier this year, another sword was thrust right at the heart of our American truckers and the safety of we the people: the Bush Administration pushed through the Mexican truck invasion. While outraged Americans and the truckers rallied and demanded this insanity not be allowed to roll onto U.S. soil past the 25-mile neutral zone, it has been pushed through anyway. Why? Because it’s a provision of NAFTA. Please see the links below for history.

Back in August, I wrote a comprehensive piece titled, Stop the NAU/SPP – what does that really mean? It’s all about money and power gained through anti-American trade policies. It’s about flooding this republic with even more dangerous junk from sadistic, brutal communist countries like China. It is the epitaph of an American Republic if not stopped. As I wrote in previous columns about the Texas Trans Corridor and the NAU, this planned destruction of America didn’t just crop up in 2005; it probably took at least ten years for the EIRs (Environmental Impact Reports/Statements) alone. Now it’s gone into warp speed because millions of Americans have caught on and are on the war path.

Now I give you further proof of the perfidy of elected public servants. Please click here to see this document. This document is S.B. 1120, a bill passed in the Arizona State Legislature and signed by their governor in April, 1993. This legislation somehow got categorized as an emergency: “Sec.|5.||Emergency. This act is an emergency measure that is necessary to preserve the public peace, health or safety and is operative immediately as provided by law.”

This “emergency” bill was to: A. The office of Sonora is established in the office of the governor. Promote a greater understanding and facilitate the implementation of the north American free trade agreement and, 2. Facilitate the flow of information and act as a liaison in the establishment of commercial relationships between Sonora, Mexico and this state.

NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) was not signed into law by Marxist Bill Clinton until December 8, 1993, yet this agreement between a state governor and a state in a foreign country was reached eight months before Clinton sold US out. So sure were the forces who own Washington, D.C., that they would get NAFTA passed – despite overwhelming opposition by we the people – agreements were already being entered into for trade far in advance of the vote by the U.S. Congress. How they must have laughed at we the people as we fought so hard to stop NAFTA.

In November, 2007, Sen. Karen Johnson and Rep. Russell Pearce, true constitutionalists who serve the people of Arizona with honor and the hearts of warriors, raised the question of the legality of this because the current Arizona governor, another flaky air head female, Janet Napolitano, entered into new agreements with the State of Sonora, Mexico. The documents below are short, but you need to read them because this is the cementing of the North American Union – all in the name of trade and big bucks for foreign countries and corporate giants in this country who have sold US out – raw and without apology.

November 15 News Release: Napolitano, Bours to strengthen regional opportunities. Binational Plenary to Bring Business, Education, Community Leaders Together. Phoenix – Governor Janet Napolitano and her Sonoran counterpart, Governor Eduardo Bours will unite members of the Arizona-Mexico Commission (AMC) and the Comisión Sonora-Arizona (CSA) in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora for a two-day binational meeting starting today.”

November 16 News Release; Declaration of Cooperation: These four pages lay it all out and it means death to this Union. Governors Lead Border Region Economic Development, Growth – Public, Private Sectors from Ariz., Sonora Aim to Bolster Region

The push for a National ID is one of the major tools needed by this North American Union. It has nothing to do with terrorists, it has everything to do with tracking and following your every move – along with the integrated citizenry of Canada and Mexico with ours. The Arizona-Sonora Commission is taking credit for the 3-in-1 ID:

Phoenix – “Governor Janet Napolitano and U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff today signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to move forward on the creation of Arizona’s 3-in-1 ID – a voluntary identification that complies with Arizona’s driver’s license standards, the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) and can be used in the work eligibility process.” Voluntary my arse. Read link number seven below.

Formerly American corporate giants and local entities are buying membership into the Arizona-Sonora Commission and I hope you will boycott their products and services starting today. Either we use our consumer dollars to fight off this massive effort to reduce our middle class to poverty and the poor into beggars or we have no one to blame but ourselves. Well, not me because I have stood my ground since 1994 regarding NAFTA and buying foreign products.

One more document: This is a letter from Napolitano and Brother Huckabee, who has fooled the Evangelical Christian Right with his folksy God-talk, to Michael Chertoff, Commissar of Fatherland Security. It reaffirms Brother Huck’s commitment to implement the Nazi-style “Real ID.” And, why wouldn’t he? His newly appointed advisor on foreign policy is none other than Richard Haas, president of the treasonous Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) who believes our national sovereignty should be scraped in favor of world government. Make no mistake about it: Brother Huckabee has been kissed and blessed by the traitors working to destroy this republic. Not to mention the Huckster’s coddling of illegals and his rolling out the welcome mat for a Mexican Consulate in Little Rock to help illegals stay in this country and steal jobs and classroom seats from Americans.

I have found more of these commissions with the State of Texas. No doubt California has also entered into them. The state legislatures all open for business next week in their new sessions as does Congress. NumbersUSA, ALIPAC and others have been phenomenally successful in leading the way in the fight against this illegals invasion. I sincerely believe we all need to put forth a massive push in January and keep the pressure on until we stop the NAU/SPP and NAFTA Super Highway. This massive illegals invasion and the NAU are integral to each other. I hope the aforementioned organizations will vigorously begin a massive campaign to join the rest of us to defeat this final push to destroy America as a free and independent nation.

Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA) introduced a very important bill that did not get passed in Congress in the last session. We must demand the same bill gets reintroduced and demand Congress stop this now – right along with the states who haven’t committed to rejecting the NAU. It’s too late to stop the Texas Trans Corridor, although we can boycott using it and I will. But, we can and we must stop this treason. It will require an all out assault on the state legislatures and Congress.

There is no more time. The final pieces of the puzzle have emerged and these arrogant elitists think we are just going to sit back and allow our republic to be dissolved. They’re badly mistaken. Please see Dr. Edwin Vieira’s important legal analysis on this very issue (click here). I know time is an issue because we’re under attack from a thousand stabs at us every day. However, this has to be our number one priority or everything else is going to be moot. The links below are web sites to help you get involved and become part of America’s army of freedom fighters who are dead serious about stopping the NAU/SPP, the National ID (Sovietization of America), NAIS and the NAFTA Super Highway to Hell.

Yes, 911, bringing our troops home and so many more issues are vitally critical, but if we lose our sovereignty and allow any further erosion of our constitution and the Bill of Rights, we’re going to be toast. This illegals invasion has been beyond devastating to this country. Bush and these other poltroons in Washington, D.C., have deliberately allowed us to be over run at the border because of their agenda and now they’re dangerously close to firing the final shot. Stop buying foreign because you’re funding our destruction. This whole rotten scheme is all about running American manufacturing and agriculture into oblivion and making us a nation dependent upon foreign countries for our very survival. Insanity! See link number 11 below for sources to more than 20,000 products and thousands of American companies who want your business.

Those who are wishing Happy New Year! as if 2008 is going to be just another year of corruption, high gas prices and Democrats fighting Republicans are in major denial. I know tonight is New Year’s eve and everyone wants to go celebrate whatever. However, if you’re not going out, I highly recommend you watch a movie. It’s called ENDGAME: Blueprint for Global Enslavement – free on the Internet. Oh, it’s not as “entertaining” as ‘I am Legend’ or some asinine “reality” show, but unlike these silly Hollywood movies and TV, this is as real as it gets. Hopefully, it will upset and anger Americans so that they finally see that we have little time left. Particularly horrifying in ENDGAME is the fully documented segment on eugenics. The Nazi’s were deep into this race based social experimentation designed to improve the white race through eugenics or “creating a better world by improving the human gene pool.” What do you think Planned Parenthood is for?

Get involved this week. No snow skiing. Forget a trip to Hawaii to lay around in the sun or play golf. We have to start our war against the NAU/SPP and the NAFTA Superhighway now. We must all make the commitment to refuse any National ID. Federal employees are sickened because their job depends on accepting one. They are being forced to give up their rights and privacy or kiss their job good bye. We must demand that Congress pass a bill immediately to get the U.S. out of the NAFTA treaty and stop that NAFTA Super Highway. This must be a top priority because it is the foundation from which all the rest of this treachery is being birthed. If we don’t stop this, our children and grand children will have no future except as a peasant class serving their world masters and that is no exaggeration. Talk is cheap. What we need are warriors to get the job done. We have the numbers. We have to stay focused.

Equal justice for a Marine?

Equal justice for a Marine?
Thomas Lifson

Marine Sgt Mike McNulty, on activation orders to Iraq (his second tour), and leaving January 2nd, is about to suffer a grave injustice.  An anti-military lawyer, apparently angy at the Marine Corps, damaged Sgt. McNulty’s personal vehicle, seeing Marine Corps identification. Now the lawyer is gaming the system, and forced to leace for Iraq, Sgt. McNulty is unable to pursue the legal remedies to which he is entitled.

Blackfive offers  a detailed account, and supplies a copy of the police report on the incident:

Victim related to P/O that as he walked back to his vehicle, he observed the offender leaning up against his vehicle and rubbed/dragged his left arm and hand across the passenger side.  As offender walked away from victim’s vehicle, victim observed a scratch along the rear trunk and passenger’s door area where offender dragged his arm and hand over.  Victim and witness stopped offender and confronted him.  Victim has military plates and decals on his vehicle and offender made anti war and military comments to victim.  Upon P/O’s arrival to scene, offender denied scratch victim’s vehicle, but did admit to rubbing past it.  Victim at this time did not sign complaint, because he is leaving tour for military duty.  Offender said they accused him of scratching the car because he is Jewish.  Offender’s statements/responses to P/O’s questions unreasonable.    

I am infuriated.

RON PAUL AWAKENS THE SPIRIT OF AMERICA by Alan Stang

RON PAUL AWAKENS THE SPIRIT OF AMERICA

Additional Titles


by Alan Stang
December 31, 2007
NewsWithViews.com

http://www.newswithviews.com/Stang/alan23.htm

I am still recovering from the response to my piece about the possible assassination of Dr. Ron Paul. In more than forty years of struggle in the battle for America, I have never seen anything like it. Days after publication, I am still trying to answer the email. It is coming from everywhere, in a swelling wave, and I literally mean everywhere, around the world. There are messages from across this country, of course, but also from Canada, from Sweden, from the Philippines, Australia and elsewhere.

It is as if, blundering in the darkness, I accidentally pushed an unseen button, or uncorked an old bottle, or opened a long unused door, and that unknowing, unintended action has unleashed a dormant, primeval force, waiting to be summoned. From uncountable throats a roaring erupts. Something awesome awakens and arises, the dimensions of which we see dimly because they are so vast, something “in the air.”

Excerpts from some of these messages could be helpful. First, they prove that what I told you is true. Some of them are scary. Second, they inspire; they prove that, as Dr. No says, freedom is contagious. People everywhere want it. Third, reading them will convince you that you are not alone and you are not crazy.

College campuses, for instance, are aflame. We knew something was afoot when Dr. Paul discusses economics, the “dismal science,” the most boring subject, and students erupt in ecstasy. Consider that most of these comments do not come from some “fringe.” They come from the heart of the heartland, from what network degenerates contemptuously dismiss as “flyover country.” Here they are:

1, I am 66, honorably discharged, and I concur with your assessment of what would happen if we move to assassination politics at this time. Dr. Paul has awakened the American Spirit of Liberty in all age groups across the nation. Many people would start voting with the little red dot. That is the one reason for the move in congress to remove the right for returning soldiers and marines to own weapons using battle fatigue as their lever. Thanks to the Internet these men and women now know that it is their own government who poisoned them through the use of depleted DU munitions in Iraq and in Afghanistan and in Bosnia. Thanks to the Internet they now know our president lied about the reasons for Gulf War 2 like his father lied in Gulf War 1.

I believe all the politicians and their handlers have reason to fear the little red dot in the hands of a man or woman who has been terminally infected with DU. This is one reason so many senior congress critters have and are resigning. They fear being held accountable by angry, hungry, unemployed black and white Americans who want our borders closed, and the illegals removed.

2, Ron Paul wins even if he loses. Yes Ron Paul wins. Remember the movie Braveheart. It was the Spirit of liberty that moved Wallace to act. It is the same Spirit that has entered into the passion of the Ron Paul movement. It is the same Spirit that will guide America through the coming economic crash and 3rd war on our soil.

3, This is an entirely different ball game! This time, we have THEIR number! Also, there are many thousands of very disenchanted young, badly injured servicemen, who realize who set them up for patsies in an extravagant blood-for-money racket! I sure would not like to be in any Bloody-Bilderberger’s shoes if anything happens to candidate Ron Paul! They got away with far too much with their fixed courts.

They trained thousands of now-enlightened soldiers how to “take-out” an enemy and now are finding the “real enemies” were playing bloody-chess, with their lives! The Bilderberger outfit should get wise and cash in their bloody hand, take their crooked earnings before they meet real fighters!

4, This next comment comes to us from Jim Schwiesow, a fellow commentator at newswithviews.com. Jim served in law enforcement for forty six years, including three years in the U.S. Army military police, fifteen years as an Iowa city cop and twenty-eight years as the elected sheriff of Sioux County, Iowa.

Dear Alan, I just read your latest article in re: The threat to Dr. Paul. I am county co-chair for Dr. Paul’s campaign and a member of his Iowa Steering Committee. Last week he arrived in our county for an engagement at one of our colleges. I was scheduled to make remarks prior to his program, and when I arrived I was totally shocked at the lack of security. He could have been assassinated with ease and the assassins would have gotten away. He had only one security man with his entourage, ONE! I spoke to this man and asked about the security. He explained that he was it and that they did not have a security staff other than him. He stated that they depended upon the local police in the various communities to help provide security. At this event there was one local police officer present. This is serious and I cannot understand the lack of concern for Dr. Paul’s safety. I am going to stress vigorously the need for adequate protection. His candidacy is rapidly gaining ground and the establishment elite are getting panicky; they will soon be at a point where they will do anything to stop him from gaining the presidency and that includes killing him. Thanks for the article pointing up the seriousness of this situation. If something happens to Dr. Paul there are going to be a lot of sorry S.O.B.s in this country.

5, We, the “Legion,” have worried about this possibility from the beginning of Dr No’s candidacy. For this reason we are ready to ramp up production of a high tech Guillotine if the need should ever arise. Sniff the air, there is a new scent wafting about from the Proletariat. Politicians can’t seem to smell it. Neither can Bankers.

6, Congratulations on your excellent letter, which I received through News with Views, here in Australia, regarding Dr. Ron Paul, and the risk of his possible assassination. Very good, and one which we have been concerned about now for some time. We pray for his safety, and his success. America needs him, as there does not appear to be anyone else. As far as the enemy is concerned, it is our firm belief that they need to be removed from the top. I mean the very top. By that we mean the very, very, top, top. Do we make ourselves clear?

Does anyone know what these good folks Down Under, and therefore outside the jurisdiction of the U.S. Secret Service, are talking about? The “very top?” I’m confused. There could be some error in translation. Remember, they are Australians. G’dye, Myte!

7, It needed to be said and you used the perfect choice of words to say it. You are so right. If they do a hit on Ron Paul we will take apart the elite’s power structure like a massive school of Piranha attacks a bird that falls into the water. It will be fast, furious, and there will be no place to hide.

Your indirect threats to the power structure were pure genius. Somebody needs to stand up to these a–holes and tell them that although they may have the financial backing, and security, nothing will stop the idea and message. It will look like a scene from a Frankenstein movie

8, I am a Vietnam vet, out of shape, overweight, and at 62 physically incapable of running five feet without a great deal of pain, own no firearms, BUT have the ability to cause more serious damage to the new world order than what you suggest in your article. These people have no clue what is in store for them should anything happen to Ron Paul. I don’t advocate any degree of violence because it would only fuel the rapidity of their martial law scenario. I will use my knowledge and abilities to do whatever it takes. How ever long it takes. With whatever effort it takes. Spend whatever money is required to get this country back. I pray for people like you and their talent to keep Ron Paul safe. Sometimes it is safer being in the open then behind closed doors.

9, I too have spoken to both serving and retired military personnel and while they have used different words, they all tell me the same thing. If Ron Paul dies, the gloves come off.

10, Thank you, Mr. Stang, for a wonderful Christmas present. You have the courage to put into words what I have been feeling all along. I have set up Ron Paul booths at gun shows and I have talked at length with the attendees. There is a large group of militia men in this country simmering under the radar. As the foreclosures rise and unemployment gets worse, their recruitment figures will skyrocket. The first gun show I ever went to, I was amazed, the line to get in was 5 abreast and 1/4 mile long. Wow! They try to stop the purchases of assault rifles and handguns by registration and waiting periods. Only fools register guns and cash is king.

We can replace Dr Paul in an instant; it’s not the man, it’s the message. His son, Rand, can step into his shoes without missing a step. I would prefer a younger leader, perhaps with a bigger, ruthless streak. I would prefer that we prosecute the criminals that stole our country and murdered millions.

Maybe, our answer to them should be what the African-Americans did to get their attention, a Million Man March. We should make a slight change, and do a Million Gun March. The only problem would be to limit it to a million because I, for one, would probably carry about 5. These guns would be loaded, although the chamber should be empty. Any resistance to the march will be met with overwhelming force kind of like holding back a tsunami. The NRA Lobby building could be our target similar to the Bastille in the French Revolution. We would get their attention. Thanks again and Merry Christmas.

11, I just saw Bill Kristol on Fox and he called Dr. Paul a crank and every other anti- American thing he could think of. It was the most vicious attack I ever heard on TV against anyone. You are right; the “Chain of Command for Treason” is really scared.

12, Sir: I always enjoy your writings, but this one is beyond anything I have read in a long, long time. I certainly hope our “elites” and their useful idiots read this and attempt to comprehend it. If they kill Dr. Paul, or if he has a “heart attack,” or a fatal accident, they will open up a can of whup-axx that they cannot imagine in their wildest nightmares. There are not enough traitors in Blackwood or whatever-the-hell these mercenaries call themselves to save even one of these elitists. Like you said, we know who they are, who their family members are, and where they live. All the money in the world will not be able to save them. The Six-Pack-of-S–t that they will open will begin with .50, yes. But it will also begin with .45, .40 and .223. Is Dr. Paul our last hope? I along with Millions of others fervently believe so. There are 80 or so MILLION Americans that are armed, and I’ll bet that 50% support Dr. Paul. I don’t normally use language like this, but I did this time to simply underscore my feelings about this. Keep up the great work and pray for the continued health of our man. Regards

13, YOU’D BETTER BELIEVE THEY’D HAVE A PROBLEM ON THEIR HANDS. There’s a lot of fat axxed really old men who can still hit a man sized target at 400 yards with iron sights with a .308 or .30-06 – add another 200 or so with a scope. And plenty of them can do head shots at 400 with their 7mm and .30 magnums. How much armor do these elitists think they can put around themselves, particularly when a .50, for example, gets lobbed in at close to a 40 degree angle at 1500 – 2000 yards, right over the heads of their “guards” and related personnel! Yassir, I think they just might have a serious shooting revolution on their hands! Particularly since an awful lot of those old farxts will be dead of natural causes before the gov’t can get them executed!

14, I personally, would be very, very, very angry if something “happens” to this particular American. The “elite” might be better off to put up with his presidency for four years … rather than initiate a WORLD-WIDE “Turner’s Diaries” situation. As you and I (and many others) know, there are too many people with hatred that, even now, simmers just barely beneath the surface for the various world governments to contain them in any fashion. Thanks for your “black flag” warning.

15, I think it is too late. . . . The B-52 incident at Barksdale proved that the powers that be are too few to push our military or intelligence services. . . . Honestly, if the average human could blame all of their misery on one group of rich, old, ugly white men there wouldn’t be enough Blackwaters to help. I know these men are scared, but, I think they missed their chance. I don’t think turning Dr. Paul into a martyr is on their agenda.

There are literally 10′s of millions of people in the United States who would unify in the event of an attempt on the doc. Millions of Americans already know that any problem with the doc can be instantly traced to the bad guys. This will increase the amount of scrutiny on the bad guys by a factor of 100 . . . not a good thing for the bad guys.

This would be the end of the handful of crazies who sit on top of the world. These men are driven by fear. Every decision they make is trying to make the illusion of control real. . . . The tipping point has been reached. Dr. Paul was merely the focal point. Millions are unified now and the bad guys will have to work out plan B and pray.

One thing researchers of the NWO never include in their Orwellian treatise. The NWO is about 2 or 3 thousand men and 10 or 20 thousand paid lackeys. This group is badly outnumbered, Mr. Stang. The cause for martial law was lost this summer thank God and it is getting “loster” every moment.

Since March at least 1 to 2 million Americans have learned the nature of the political system from the internet. The genius Bilderbergers missed that one didn’t they? They need malinformed apathetic people to ignore the man behind the curtain. Millions of bloodthirsty, well informed, authority hating Americans backed by 60,000,000 constitution toting gun owners are communicating with each other every second. Spreading the truth, candidate or not. If they hurt Dr. Paul it will be the end of them. It will unify the already unified and reinforce them by a factor of ten. They are better off letting him win and trying to stop him when he is in office. They need all of us to calm down so they can get back to pulling the strings.

No, Mr. Stang, the bad guys had their chance. They guessed wrong. They really had no idea that people would fight to the death for freedom and there are too many fighters for them to win this war.

16, I have friends who are sleeping in tents and their cars, leasing a blimp, etc. because RON MUST WIN or else the republic is an idea whose time has come and gone. I was moved by your article and hope all my friends in DC, NH, and SC read this. I advocate Dr. Paul pick his VP now and his VP pick his VP ahead of time should that be necessary. The only difference between u.s. and a banana republic is that we don’t export bananas only arms and war.

17, Very well written, very well put, and so very true. There are “bubbas” in Arkansas that can drop a ten point buck at a half mile with a .22 magnum, so a shot like that with a .300 mag or a .308 would be a piece of cake at three quarters of a mile to a mile. The death of Dr. Paul would open up hunting season.

18, Bravo on your latest Ron Paul article. Hopefully they would not dare go through with killing Dr. Paul. Your article is spot on as to what would happen if they tried. Most people, however, do not get it. Dr. Paul is not the revolution – freedom is! This movement is bigger than Dr. Paul. It has awakened something in all of us that has been sleeping for far too long. Dr. Paul is just the face of it – not the heart of it. They can kill him but they will only make a martyr out of him and help the movement grow even larger. They should be scared. Their days are numbered. Liberty or death!

That concludes the excerpts. Remember that the Dr. No movement is unlike anything else in our history. It consists of every kind of American, every race, religion, age and financial status, civilian and military, both sexes, etc. Did I leave someone out? They are buying out the gun shows to the walls. How likely is it that they will turn everything in like good little boys and girls when the government calls? Well, how likely is it that el presidente Jorge W. Boosh will convert to Christianity?

50 Years Later: Bravery Outshines Public Humiliation

50 Years Later: Bravery Outshines Public Humiliation

By David Paulin

Fifty years ago this month, President Eisenhower and Sputnik were in the news — and so were the marital travails of an Air Force pilot named David Steeves. The 23-year-old lieutenant — once a national hero — was now under a cloud of innuendo and suspicion stirred up by the nation’s news media.

Decades before media abuse became a hotly debated topic, Lt. Steeves was a victim of it, suffering a public humiliation he did not deserve. The Air Force, for its part, may have contributed to this guilt-by-innuendo. But ultimately it was the mainstream media that put the pilot’s head in a noose in the court of public opinion.

In its watchdog role, the media should have endeavored to get to the bottom of the case of Lt. Steeves and his missing T-33 jet trainer. Instead, it played up the sensational aspects of the case, thereby helping to destroy an Air Force officer’s reputation.

Lt. Steeves captivated the nation that previous July 1, 1957 when he wandered out of California’s Sierra Nevada. Weeks earlier, the Air Force had declared him dead after he disappeared on a cross-country flight. Yet 54 days after ejecting from his disabled jet over ice and snow-covered mountains, he hobbled out of the wilderness with a heavy beard and tattered flight suit. In a hastily arranged news conference at Castle Air Force Base in Merced, California, he told a harrowing story of survival that captivated the nation.

Steeves was front-page news for days, a media darling. And his photogenic 21-year-old wife Rita quickly became part of the story. There were TV and radio appearances, even talk of a book deal. But six weeks later, the story of Lt. Steeves, the hero, fell apart after the Saturday Evening Post claimed to have found “discrepancies” in his survival story. The weekly magazine’s claims were not fully explained at first, and when they were explained months later, they proved baseless. But no matter. Thereafter, there was a media pile on.

The Steeves-as-hero narrative was quickly scrapped, and recast. Now he was a man telling tall tales — perhaps even perpetrating a hoax (though for what purpose was never explained).

And though not apart of their official narrative, some reporters may have heard wild rumors said to be floating about, or that were slipped to them by conspiracy-minded Cold Warriors in the Air Force or Pentagon: Steeves flew his jet to Mexico, then sold it to the Russians or some other malevolent nation.

None of this ever proved true. And in 1957 there was no evidence that it might be true. Yet this was of no consequence to the vast majority of media outlets. Putting on their brass knuckles, they went on a journalistic gang bang, trampling facts and decency as they infused story after story about Lt. Steeves with suspicion and reckless innuendo. And no matter that top officials in the U.S. Park Service and U.S. Air Force (those speaking on the record) supported Steeves’ story. A close reading of newspaper archives, primarily from 1957 and 1958, makes this crystal clear.

Just a few years earlier, ironically, crusading members of the high-minded Fourth Estate told themselves they’d saved the country from Wisconsin’s irresponsible senator, Joe McCarthy. Yet now they engaged in what amounted to McCarthy-style reporting on Lt. Steeves and his wife Rita. Both eventually moved on with their lives, perhaps owing to their faith and resilient spirits, though the media’s glare may have complicated their already troubled marriage.

The story of Lt. David Steeves started on a clear and sunny day on May 9, 1957 as he soared over the High Sierras at 33,500 feet. As he later related, an explosion ripped through his T-33 jet. He blacked out, regained consciousness and then ejected over some of America’s roughest terrain. After a few weeks, the Air Force sent his wife a death certificate, believing nobody could have survived in the icy and snowy mountains.

“I was officially a widow,” she related. “I had to start a new life.” Determined to be strong and positive, she enrolled in a local university near her husband’s hometown of Trumbull, Connecticut to become a school teacher. “I knew I must now be the head of my family — families, I know, can fall apart when there’s a death. I resolved this would not happen to us.”

Survival Story

Yet her husband was alive, and fighting for his life.

In published accounts, Steeves wilderness ordeal reads like a Hollywood script. One top Air Force officer called it a “remarkable feat.”

Two of Lt. Steeves’ parachute panels were burned out, so he landed hard at the 11,000-foot level, badly twisting his ankles as he hit snow and ice. He had no survival kit or warm clothes to protect himself against temperatures that, according to an accident report obtained for this article, ranged between 25 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Bundling himself in his parachute, he huddled against giant boulders to stay out of the wind for the first four days. Then he gave up that a rescue party would be coming.

Setting off down the mountain, he told of crawling, sliding, and hobbling for 15 days, consuming only melted snow, until coming upon an empty ranger’s cabin 15 miles away. There he found enough food to regain his strength. He told of then living on dandelions, grass snakes, and fish caught with some rusty hooks he found. Utilizing a snare rigged to his revolver, he even killed a deer.

Park rangers estimated he wandered 20 to 40 miles in attempting to hike out of the wildest part of the Sierra Nevada, where imposing peaks, canyons, and raging streams would challenge even an experienced mountaineer. He shed about 40 pounds from his fit 6-foot 195 pound frame, and his wife later commented that he felt “skinny.” Hunger, however, was the least of Steeves’ worries, according to a lengthy article by noted journalist William E. Peters in the January 1958 issue of Redbook.

He wrote, “There were times when he told himself he had gone mad, that he was dead and this was some form of icy hell. In waves of panic he felt he was being punished for his sins; he prayed for forgiveness, despaired, then prayed some again.”

Although raised in a church-going family, Steeves said he didn’t consider himself deeply religious, though he said he enjoyed Billy Graham’s sermons. Later, he admitted to shortcomings as a father and husband. Yet in the wilderness, it was thoughts of “God, my wife, and my baby daughter” that pulled him through, he always maintained.

‘Incoherent with Joy’

Steeves came upon two campers in Kings Canyon National Park on July 1, 1957, and one took him to a ranger’s station on horseback. He promptly phoned home.

Describing her once-dead son’s call, his mother told reporters he “felt every prayer” said for him. His wife Rita, no longer a window, was too “incoherent with joy” to make much sense according to a reporter who tried to interview her shortly after the call. But she later described her feelings with a burst of eloquence: “I’m afraid at this point the experience is taking its effect, it’s true. It’s marvelously true. That’s all I can say. I don’t know what to do. I’m usually a pretty rational person but this thing is beyond the bounds of rationalization. I don’t know what bounds it’s beyond but it certainly is marvelous.”

After these initial stories, the media shifted its attention to Steeves’ family in Trumbull. In the next days, newspaper stories focused on their immediate reactions; and after that on the joyous reunion days later, when Steeves came home.

“Wife Refused to Let Hope Dwindle,” declared the front-page headline in the Reno Evening Gazette on July 3, 1957. The story of Lt. Steeves dominated the upper half of the page. “I don’t think a wife, deep down, ever really gives up hope,” Mrs. Steeves was quoted as saying in an Associated Press story. A photo of the remarkably attractive Air Force wife, holding her daughter, ran next to one of her heavily bearded husband in his flight suit.

Elsewhere on the Evening Gazette’s front page were indications of the mood of the times. A banner headline shouted: “U.S. May Share H-Bomb Data.” And over the right-hand column another headline explained: “Advisors Suggest Providing Reds Fallout Prevention.” According to the AP story, “President Eisenhower said today some advisers have told him Russia should be given the secret of how to make ‘clean’ hydrogen bombs – if the United States itself finally figures out how to do it.” And a news item from “Nevada’s Atomic Test Site” was placed inconspicuously in the middle left-hand column, under a more important story about a local rodeo, and over a less important one about a a wind storm in the Midwest. Its small headline advised: “July 4 Atomic Test Postponed.”
All in all, Lt. Steeves and his heroic story of survival — one man with courage against the elements — was surely an uplifting antidote for the unease of the times, when nuclear bombs rendered battlefield heroics and self-sacrifice meaningless, and perhaps unnecessary. And the previous year, Sloan Wilson’s bestseller “The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit” was a hit movie, revolving around a WW-2 combat veteran (Gregory Peck)  now a New York public relations man struggling to maintain his suburban family on the unsatisfying corporate treadmill.
Days after returning to Trumbull, Lt. Steeves made radio and TV appearances, including on the popular Art Linkletter, Dave Garaway, and Arthur Godfrey shows. Writing about a news conference in New York, a reporter observed that Lt. Steeves responded to every question “patiently, earnestly, and with good humor, giving every indication that he understood his incredible experience was something to be shared.”

Parade magazine called the story of Lt. Steeves one of the year’s “most inspiring.” And in its story on Mrs. Steeves in early August, editors said she had a “message for the woman of America.”

As for Lt. Steeves’ future plans, his mother had summed them up when she described that wonderful phone call she go from her once-dead son. She asked if he was “going back to flying,” according to a newspaper account.
“I sure am,” he said.
“Oh, he loves it,” she explained. “All the Air Force boys love it. He wanted to be a pilot since he was a child.”
‘McCarthy’-style Reporting

Then came the Saturday Evening Post‘s announcement in mid-August that it had withdrawn a $10,000 offer for the lieutenant’s exclusive story — all after writer Clay Blair Jr., a noted military writer and former WW-2 submariner, claimed to have found many “discrepancies” in it.

Whether Blair came to his own conclusions, or got them on “background” from military contacts, is not known. But after getting a whiff of conflict and scandal, the media piled on. Never again was anything said by Steeves and his supporters taken at face value. Now, every story about him was injected with skepticism and innuendo, as the Air Force watched him twist in the wind.
By this time, the story of Lt. Steeves was a wire service story — one being told by the Associated Press and several other wire services, which no longer exist. Most big metropolitan papers had written all they would about Lt. Steeves after a week.

Wire service reporting is highly competitive. Reporters must crank out a steady stream of copy for their clients — news-hungry newspapers and broadcast stations. And when perceiving a legitimate controversy or difference of opinion, they became impartial truth-seekers and referees, writing “balanced” stories that give equal weight to all viewpoints — all so that the public can make up its own mind. Such a journalistic formula, together with a certain mindset, produces news that today’s political conservatives criticize as reflecting a philosophy of “moral equivalence.”

Above all, wire service reporters must put out attention-grabbing stories — stories that get published. Often this involves putting “fresh angels” and interesting new twists on old stories.
And after the Saturday Evening Post‘s claims of “discrepancies,” there were plenty of opportunities to do that. Now, Lt. Steeves was on the defensive: It was his word against the Saturday Evening Post‘s.

“AF Lieutenant Stands By Story; Magazine Doubts 54-Day Ordeal” blared the headline of an AP story in The News of Newport, Rhode Island, that ran August 15, 1957. The story continued in that vein, pitting Lt. Steeves’ story against Clay Blair’s. But ultimately, it was probably the story’s controversial headline that readers remembered — not remarks from Supt. Thomas J. Allen of Kings Canyon National Park. He was quoted as saying that rangers found evidence that Steeves had hiked some 25 miles through “very, very rough country.”

By late summer, marital troubles were known to exist between Lt. Steeves and his wife, with papers reporting about Rita Steeves’ plans to seek a divorce. No explanation was given, only that it had to do with problem’s preceding Steeves’ wilderness ordeal. But no matter. Connecting the dots, the headline of one wire service story declared: “Magazine Cancels Story, Wife Plans Divorce of Pilot.” The innuendo had been created: Steeves was lying about his Sierra story — and now his wife was walking out on him.

Rita Steeves from the start had been part of the Steeves-as-hero narrative. They were a very photogenic couple: Steeves cut a dashing figure in his beard; and he continued to wear it for a while, to his wife’s dismay. Rita Steeves was often described, in the journalistic fashion of the day, as an “attractive blond” or “Steeves’ blond wife.”

One reporter even wrote of the “blond and beautiful” Rita Steeves, when describing her and the lively scene at New York’s LaGuardia Field, as her husband disembarked a commercial flight and walked quickly into her arms. “Kiss him,” shouted reporters and photographers, according the reporter’s account. “Don’t know where,” she shouted, referring to the bushy beard.
She kissed him anyway.
Whether she wanted to be or not, Rita Steeves was drawn into the journalistic glare as it changed from the upbeat to the tawdry. “Wife of Pilot Who Survived in Wilds ‘Mum,’” declared a headline. According to the wire story from Fairfield, Connecticut, “The wife of Air Force Lt. David A. Steeves, 23, who told tale of remarkable survival after an airplane crash, declined today to discuss his literary or marital troubles.”

Connecting the dots, other stories played up the Steeves’ marital troubles, while simultaneously casting doubt on Lt. Steeves’ wilderness story. “Wife won’t go back to ‘lost’ Airman,” declared an AP story published December 27, 1957. The scare quotes around “lost,” of course, suggested Lt. Steeves was never lost at all.

Yet another angle involved raising false suspicions about what the Air Force was calling a routine investigation. “Post Kills Story of Lost Airman/AF PROBE ‘ROUTINE,’” declared one headline. Of course, words like “probe” along with those tiny but incriminating scare quotes  around “routine” left little doubt that Lt. Steeves had some explaining to do. Referring to Blair’s allegations of “discrepancies,” the headline of an article by United Press, a wire service, asked: “True or False: Air Force Searches to Find Answers.”

And so it went.

Soon enough, two of America’s most influential magazines, Time and Life, joined the pile-on. “Certain Discrepancies” was the title of a condescending piece Time ran on August 26, 1957, written in the breezy pseudo-literary style invented by Time‘s Ivy League editors.

Suggesting Steeves was hiding something, it mentioned his marital troubles, subtly derided his survival story, and implied he was improperly cashing in on his fame. Portraying him as something of a cad, it concluded with a literary flourish:

“…Steeves waved emptily at the brand new grey (sic) Jaguar he bought shortly before his famed adventure.’Look. I’ve lost everything in the world-my wife. What have I got with all this publicity? I’ve got a nice car. I’m lonesome as hell.’”

Life gave new meaning to the words “hatchet job” with a two-page spread published September 2, 1957: “The Strange Case of the Sierra Survivor; Pilot’s tale of mountain ordeal arouses some strong suspicions.”

Amply illustrated with eleven photos and a map, its brief main story summed up previously published suspicions and innuendos — and created some of its own. It noted that not “a trace” of Steeves’ jet had been found. In addition, Life claimed Steeves’ wife, “who is planning to divorce him for reasons that antedate this adventure, does not know what to believe.”

Life published three different photos of Steeves — including one of the nattily dressed pilot leaning against his prized Jaguar and smoking his pipe. The article raised a troubling issue: How could Steeves possibly afford the sports car on his meager Air Force pay? However, no response from Steeves was published; and there was no indication Life even asked for one. Readers were left to ponder the innuendo.

Another incriminating photo was taken near the ranger’s cabin where Steeves stayed: It was a mug shot of a big deer with enormous antlers. In the photo, the seemingly calm animal stares blankly at the photographer as it stands just feet away. According to Life: Such “tame deer…easily approachable by man, raised suspicions of Steeves’ claim he had to set up (an) elaborate trap to lure and kill deer.”

Several grizzled locals were interviewed by Life, and they had their pictures published; all were all men in the 50s and 60s. A local sheriff elaborated on how the Air Force pilot might have indeed staged a hoax. And Life interviewed Supt. Thomas Allen, of Kings Canyon National Park. Months earlier, he’d told the AP about evidence of Steeves’ heroic wilderness ordeal. But Life put a different spin on those remarks, saying Allen thought the escape “was extremely difficult but possible.”

Redbook’s
January article, however, rose above such inane pack journalism. Peters, the author, a WW-2 pilot who’d been shot down, observed that “what had been for more than a month the heroic story of a pilot’s winning battle against the Sierra became, overnight, a front-page story of a possible hoax.” He quoted Steeves as saying that “to be the subject of hero worship for having saved my own skin was strange enough, but to lose everything I loved — my wife and child — and then be thought a liar…well it was rough.”

Most significantly, the article provided the first comprehensive account of Steeves’ wilderness ordeal (the story the Saturday Evening Post turned down); and it explained some of the “discrepancies” the magazine had alleged. Peters also took the trouble to interview Steeves’ commanding officer at Craig Air Force Base in Alabama, Col. Leo F. Dusard Jr. A decorated WW-2 pilot, he was quoted as saying: “All office of security investigation reports are classified. I cannot reveal the content of this one.

“As for my personal opinion, I do not doubt Lt. Steeves’ integrity. I believe he bailed out of his plane where he said he bailed out. I accept his statement as to the explosion (which prompted him to parachute). “I believe Steeves was in the mountains for 54 days, survived and walked out, and I consider it a remarkable feat.”
Reacting to the Redbook piece, several newspapers across the country ran stories about it – writing their own pieces for a change, rather than letting the wires do the work. But some still gravitated toward the sensational. A piece the Modesto Bee ran on December 27, 1957, played up Lt. Steeves’ romantic life — and Col. Dusard’s comments were cited in the last few paragraphs. Similarly, the front-page headline in the Big Spring Daily Herald (Texas) on December 31, 1957 announced: “Steeves Tells of Love Life in Current Magazine Article.”

Redbook was not stooping to tabloid journalism to discuss such things. By now, details of the Steeves’ private life had become relevant in light of wire service stories that had for months implied a connection between Steeves’ wilderness ordeal and his marital troubles.

Even as Redbook‘s article appeared, the wire services were still cranking out copy about Lt. Steeves. Two items ran on the “jump page” of the Modesto Bee‘s Redbook piece. “Wife Sees No Chance of Future Together,” declared a headline. Another announced: “Steeves Plans to Sue Magazine On Lost Contract.” Steeves ended up wining that legal action, apparently recovering the $10,000 he’d been promised for his exclusive story.

Along with its Redbook piece, the Reno Evening Gazette on December 26, 1957 published a wire service item: “Steeves Released By US Air Force.” According to the AP story, Steeves had “been returned to civilian life at his own request.” Citing an Air Force spokesman, the article said the Air Force “is under orders to trim its active officer rolls by about 2,500 during the year ending June 30. The spokesman cited this circumstance and said acceptance of requests like Steeves’ is routine.”

Steeves remained in the reserves, however. The news item quoted an unnamed “former associate” of Steeves’ as saying the lieutenant’s resignation may have had something to do with a “reconciliation” he’d had with his wife.

Before it was published, Steeves was shown the Redbook article, which portrayed his complicated personal life in a negative light. He was quoted as saying, “If Mr. Peters has been harsh with me as a human being, he has also been fair. He has told the truth.”

A year and a half later, Rita Steeves was granted a divorce — though not before suffering the indignity of having private details of her marriage detailed in local papers. She later married an accountant. Today, the phone number listed assigned to her name in Connecticut is unlisted.

Steeves eventually remarried, but the scandal that enveloped him haunted him until his death. Indeed, a former airman in the squadron that searched for Steeves said in a 1997 interview: “(W)e heard that he faked the whole thing. If he’d have walked into our squad, we’d have killed him.” Redbook, with its limited circulation, could not restore Steeves’ reputation.

In defending himself against skeptics in 1957, Steeves always faced a major hurdle. No trace of his jet was found — not until 20 years later in 1977. Boy Scouts hiking in Kings Canyon National Park came across an airplane’s bubble canopy: Its serial number showed it had come off Steeves’ T-33. AP put out a story, but not many papers ran it. A bittersweet headline ran in Pacific Stars & Strips: “Discovery Backs Story of Disgraced Pilot of ’50s.”

The discovery was of no help to Steeves. Twelve years earlier, he and a passenger were killed in Idaho during a take-off mishap involving a light plane, reportedly a Stinson Mule. Then 31, Steeves reportedly had modified the single-engine plane and was demonstrating it to his passenger. At the time, he owned an aviation firm in Fresno, California. He had remarried, and with his new wife had two children, a daughter and son born ten days earlier. According to some sources, Steeves had rented planes over the years and gone out to look for his lost jet.

‘Kangaroo Court’
In their reporting, the wire services fancied themselves to be producing balanced stories on Lt. Steeves. It was their job to tell the truth, and let the public decide, based on an even-handed presentation of all viewpoints. But in the case of Lt. David Steeves, the court of public opinion was Kangaroo Court, a court so named because of the “leaps and bounds” it takes in coming to a guilty verdict.
Interestingly, Steeves was not the first Air Force officer to be enveloped in scandal in the 1950s. In 1953, Lt. Milo Radulovich was discharged from the Air Force after being deemed a security risk for his alleged communist ties. Liberals rushed to his defense, with legendary CBS newsman Edward R. Murrow his most visible defender. Murrow’s efforts were portrayed in the 2005 movie about the newsman, Good Night, and Good Luck.

For self-congratulatory journalists, the defense of Lt. Milo Radulovich was considered one of journalism’s finest hours. An innocent man was saved — and the country was saved from McCarthyism. Yet curiously, no such journalistic crusade came to the support of Lt. Steeves. Neither Murrow nor anybody of his stature came forward to evoke the most famous line attacking Wisconsin’s irresponsible senator: “Have you no decency, sir?”

Perhaps Lt. Steeves would have been a more interesting and sympathetic figure if he’d been accused of harboring communist sympathies and had some complicated ethnic background. But, alas, he was merely a 23-year-old Air Force pilot eager to grab his piece of the American dream — earn a good living and move his family out of the trailer homes and garage apartments they’d been living on his Air Force salary. And he wanted as well to enjoy his prized Jaguar sports car that, to the outrage of Life‘s editors, he apparently could not afford.

‘Possible Causes’
The media played a major role in the public humiliation of Lt. Steeves. But the Air Force played a role too. In newspaper articles, Air Force spokesmen were quoted as saying there was no reason to believe that Steeves “was a phony.” But the Air Force undertook no pro-active effort to defend him, and a look at the Air Force’s accident report makes it clear way.
Recently, this author obtained some 50 pages of the 1957 report from Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico. No testimony or statements are included , which is reflected in scores of missing pages. There’s page after page of mostly dry technical details, which include a number of blacked out sentences and spaces — from Lt. Steeves’ year of birth to potentially interesting remarks here and there.
Lacking a wrecked airplane, investigators obviously had a tough time reaching a conclusion; and so the accident’s cause was undetermined. Or as the board stated: It was “able to come to no conclusion as to the probable causes of the accident.”
Yet three “possible causes” were listed, and the first was tantalizing. Contradicting the Air Force’s official and public positions, the No. 1 possible cause stated, “That Lt. Steeves perpetrated a disappearance and ejected from a normally functioning aircraft.”
That’s a bombshell on several fronts. First, Lt. Steeves was never charged with anything; the Air Force publicly maintained he was cleared in a routine investigation. He supposedly resigned voluntarily, then remained in the reserves.
Yet some Air Force brass privately doubted him all along. Their doubts never made it into news reports, to be sure; not officially anyway. But they certainly could have been talking privately with reporters, giving “background only” interviews that politely suggested how to spin the story of Lt. Steeves and his missing T-33.
How the accident board reached this “hoaxer” conclusion cannot be known for sure. Under the Air Force’s usual guidelines, all statements and testimony were stricken from the material made public. But those familiar with the case contend Lt. Steeves never would have come under such suspicion if his T-33 had been found. “If they had found the wreck, they would have know it was not a hoax, because the whole case of it being a hoax was they thought he had sold it to the Russians,” observed Allen J. Schuh, 67, a retired psychology professor at California State University (Hayward), who taught in the School of Business and Economics. For years, Schuh has been piecing together the puzzle of Lt. Steeves and his missing T-33, a case that has fascinated him since he was a boy.
“I always felt he (Lt. Steeves) suffered a terrible injustice,” he said, during a telephone interview.
A Proper Search?
While suggesting that Lt. Steeves absconded with his jet, Air Force brass overlooked an interesting detail: It appears that only a half-hearted effort was made to find Lt. Steeves and his downed jet. In its “mission statement,” the 41st Air Rescue Squadron admits that rescue units failed to search promising areas — where the jet might have crashed — due to low clouds, fog, and treacherous terrain. There’s no indication rescue units later visited these areas, once the weather cleared up.
One excuse after another is mentioned in the mission report of June 6, 1957. “Extended area search commended at daylight on 10 May by all participants in the mission. Weather left much to be desired,” it stated. Elsewhere, it noted:
“On several days during this mission, it was impossible to dispatch any aircraft because of weather. Ground parties were sent to at these times, but their efforts were often nullified to inability to negotiate the mountainous terrain under the weather conditions which prevailed.”
Most incredibly, the statement admitted no visits were made to two sites where aircraft wreckage was spotted — wreckage that was “not in the Air Rescue Squadron Crash Locater Index. Ground parties were dispatched to check both of this leads, but they were unsuccessful due whether which at times limited visibility to 25 feet in fog, rain and snow.”
Eventually, Lt. Steeves was declared dead.
The Air Force briefly faced some pointed questions about the hasty issuance of a death certificate, after Lt. Steeves turned out to be very much alive. Responding to a reporter, a Pentagon spokesman said a death certificate was issued only after “a thorough search was made and no trace was found of the pilot.”
Apparently, Lt. Steeves father had his doubts about the Air Force’s search effort, a point he mentioned when telling a newspaper reporter about the phone call from his once-dead son. When Lt. Steeves asked if he’d been given up for dead, his father replied: “I told him ‘no’. I said I was just getting ready to come out to see if I could do something.”
“The accident board and 41st Air Rescue Squadron didn’t do their jobs,” Schuh says.
The ‘Hoaxer’ Narrative
The discovery of the jet’s bubble canopy in 1977 was the final coup de grace for conspiracy theorists, both in the Air Force and news media. They destroyed a man’s reputation, yet none of them ever answered a simple question: What did the young lieutenant hope to achieve?
Even back in 1957, there were obvious holes in the narrative casting Lt. Steeves as a hoaxer. For one thing, he never took along a survival kit, which suggested he anticipated a routine flight. And when ejecting over some of America’s roughest terrain, he carried only a .32 caliber handgun and knife. Left in the cockpit were a Bible (New Testament) and can of pipe tobacco.
That he never planned a trip lasting 54 days also is underscored by the precarious state in which he left his personal life, as Redbook revealed. He’d fessed up to his wife about an affair he’d been having a woman in San Francisco, and promised to end it. His wife expected him to do it, before his ill-fated training flight from San Francisco back home to Craig Air Force Base near Selma.
However, he failed to keep his promise, as his wife fortuitously learned during during his wilderness adventure. While he was munching on grass snacks and raw deer meat, the “other woman” contracted his wife. Very quickly, she realized the shocking truth: Her husband had not ended the relationship. “After that, I couldn’t even cry. I felt robbed even of a widow’s natural grief,” she told Redbook.
Somehow, Lt. Steeves patched things up — but only for a while. The couple would have an on-and-off again relationship, making for entertaining wire service copy and helping to nourish conspiracy theories.
Other Possible Causes

According to the accident board, the second “possible cause” of the jet crash was,

“That an explosive decompression occurred, filling the cockpit with vapor, and the pilot panicked and ejected as a result of believing that the explosive decompression was an explosion and the vapor was smoke.”
If that indeed happened, Lt. Steeves would certainly not be the first military pilot to eject prematurely from an airplane in an emergency. However, he would be the first military pilot to suffer nationwide humiliation for such an error.
Readers who are pilots will find it interesting that Lt. Steeves had logged a total of 922 flight hours, including 540 in the T-33; and within the last 90 days he’d logged 87 hours. One newspaper described him as a “rookie” pilot, yet he was doing quite a lot of flying during an Air Force career after graduating from a college in Connecticut,where he attended ROTC. With all those hours, he must have felt confident as he leveled off at 33,500 feet on the day of his ill-fated flight. How likely is it that a well-trained and level-headed pilot would eject in a “panic” over mountainous terrain — unless he had very good reason to believe his jet was uncontrollable, in flames, or breaking up?
When discussing the pilot’s temperament, his father described a son who was resourceful, deliberative in his thinking, and “afraid of nothing or nobody.” He also was in good physical shape. If he safety ejected, his father had figured he had a “50-50″ chance of survival.
Aviation Mystery Solved?
Lastly, there is “possible cause” No. 3: “That a combustion explosion did occur and disabled the aircraft.”
Curiously, there is no elaboration; and below the statement are blacked out sentences. Presumably, this is the possible cause to which investigators attached the least weight. Yet today this is the cause that’s most widely accepted among those familiar with the accident report, according to Schuh, the professor.
Through a Freedom of Information (FOI) request, the 1960′s Navy veteran obtained a more complete accident report than this author obtained directly from Kirtland. Recently, he published a fascinating analysis about the jet’s final moments in The Forensic Examiner, a professional journal.
Not only does Schuh provide a new twist on the jet’s final moments, he pinpoints its probable location. During certain times of the year, he says, he’s even obtained Google satellite images of a straight-wing jet among the rocks and bush, not far from where Boy Scouts found its bubble canopy.
What triggered the explosion?
According to his article, the jet had a history of ” maintenance problems” so problematic that the U.S. Navy, which had flown it previously, stopped using it. One problem was that the “aircraft’s fuel cap, which was behind the (back) ejection seat, occasionally leaked.”
The smell of jet fuel in the cockpit, however, would not have been noticed by Lt. Steeves: He was breathing through his oxygen mask. This would have been standard operating procedure, and Schuh’s article noted the lieutenant was regarded as a good pilot. This is contrary to Life magazine’s article in September 1959, which described him as merely “average” — a claim that failed to cite any sources.
Most who read the accident report believe a spark from an electrical source ignited the fuel-air mixture. It ripped through the cockpit, knocking Lt. Steeves unconscious, and burning part of his parachute. He said he quickly came to, and ejected upon finding “the flight surfaces and controls had been fatally damaged.”
In his article, however, Schuh recasts this scenario with some intriguing twists. Drawing on information from the accident report, he contends that Lt. Steeves touched off the explosion when he set his autopilot. In Schuh’s account, though, things happen slightly differently after that.
Lt. Steeves did not black out for seconds, but for minutes — and perhaps for a number of minutes. Waking up, he suddenly found himself in a smoke-filed cockpit and seemingly life-or-death situation. Schuh wrote: “He said the aircraft was spinning, but perhaps his head was spinning and the aircraft was still flying straight and level.” Lt. Steeves began fighting the controls — forgetting he’d just set the autopilot – but the controls seemed unresponsive to him, explained.
So he ejected.
Yet the jet’s controls were in fact “not damaged…there was nothing wrong with the flight surfaces,” Schuh explained; and while the jet flew off on autopilot, it did not maintain it’s programmed course. Lacking a canopy, pilot, and ejection seat, it now possessed different flight characteristics.
When the explosion occurred, moreover, Schuh thinks Lt. Steeves had his hand on the rudder trim tab. This “could have caused his hand to put in too much left rudder (input) as he was knocked unconsciousness.” As a result, the jet went into a wide left turn.
Interestingly, Schuh’s article notes that Lt. Steeves did not report seeing his jet while descending under his parachute. He neither saw it crash into the ground or a lake, suggesting it did indeed fly off on its own.
Believing the unmanned jet entered a wide left turn after Lt. Steeves ejected, Schuh wrote: “By calculation, this turn would have a diameter of about 70 miles and could take him in a loop from his initial south heading, first east and then north, eventually over Kings Canyon,” he wrote. “The aircraft continued the wide circle until fuel exhaustion.”
Schuh, speaking on the phone, also held out the possibility that a spark from another source ignited the fuel-air mixture; and he said the T-33 could have flown off in stable configuration without its autopilot being engaged.
With this hypothesis, Schuh set out to pinpoint the jet’s location. He established points on a map that included Lt. Steeves’ landing spot near Lake Helen; his last radio transmission; and its bubble canopy that Boy Scouts discovered.
The T-33, he concluded, rests at a site where rescue units spotted wreckage, yet never checked due to poor weather and difficult terrain. Elaborating on the thinking of rescue personnel, Schuh’s article note this site was “far east of Steeves’ expected flight path, with no indication of recent fire or explosion or the presence of a sign of life.” It was presumed to be another of the many wrecks dotting the mountainous. A Google image he took, however, showed what appears to be the missing T-33.
He forwarded the photo to Air Force officials, telling them: “‘You’ve got a straight-wing jet down on the rock.’”
“All they responded was that it made sense,” he said.
Even after 50 years, Schuh said the case of Lt. Steeves is an embarrassment to the Air Force. “I think the Air Force would rather have the whole thing just go away,” he said.
That Lt. Steeves was cast as a possible hoaxster by the accident board probably occurred because of what Schuh described as a certain military mindset: Once a determined senior officer makes up his mind, lower-ranking ones tend to follow along. Faced with a lost jet, Schuh said “it became easy to blame a junior officers, and to accuse him of a hoax.”
Schuh fine-tuned the Air Force’s coordinates for the aircraft wreck that air rescue units never checked out, and that may well be the missing T-33′s resting place. It’s located in Kings Canyon at these coordinates: 36.2333N…118.6833W.
“If I was 20 years younger, I would have gone there last summer,” Schuh said. The site is not far from a campground. Had he gone, he says, he would have looked for the tail number of Lt. Steeves missing T-33: 52-9232A. Verifying that, he knows what he’d have found in the cockpit of the long-dead pilot who “suffered a terrible travesty” — his can of pipe tobacco and a New Testament Bible.
POSTSCRIPT: The Crash Site
Allen J. Schuh explained in an e-mail message how to find the site where Lt. Steeves’ T-33A might be found:
“From the mission report of the 41st Air Rescue Squadron, as mentioned in the accident report, I got 36 14 N…118 41 W which was converted by one of the
Internet photograph viewers to be 36.2333N…118.6833W.

“I looked at a few of the Internet viewers and realized rather quickly that if you input those coordinates you don’t always get the same picture. So I looked for a feature and found Frasier Mill Campground on TopoZone (a satellite image website) to get a look at the topology. Hedrick Pond Campground is Southeast. Draw a line between the two and look very carefully about half way between. Follow the 6400 grid line.

“I saw an anomaly, printed it, and asked my wife what it looked like. She independently thought it was a straight-winged jet with drop tanks attached. This was with nothing sophisticated optically, just the viewer on the PC. I wondered if I could get better pictures historically before and after May 1957 but stopped when I thought I had enough. There is no substitute for the check on the ground. You are looking for tail number 52-9232A.”

THE CLOCK IS TICKING ON AMERICA’S LAST YEAR OF FREEDOM

By Greg Evensen

There is not a single person left above ground in America that has not yet had their obituary published, that can admit to feeling positive about the coming months before our next general elections. Out of 280 million American citizens and 20 million illegals occupying space within our borders, we have 20 auditioning professional liars and pretenders willing to say anything to live in the White House. Only one in my view, Ron Paul, holds the minimum requirements to legitimately seek and honestly campaign for the office. He isn’t my guy 100%, but I can live with most of his platform and his character.

Without running through the abysmal list of candidates from all parties again, I will just say that I am embarrassed to think that this list of loud-mouthed, know nothing about anything group of charlatans, believes that they represent me or my fellow disillusioned citizens concerning the sorry state of our nation. Yet, the all-powerful national elites that ultimately control our destinies, believes that you believe these sorry examples of potential “presidential” choices do, in fact, model your desires for national leadership in 2008. That is why Ron Paul is the ONLY choice that has merit worthy of our support.

If Ron is to win, then he must have the support and active participation of every last one of us who holds out the last shred of hope for the future of a free and prosperous America. If Ron loses, it will be because those same Americans who paid lip service to him and even gave money for his campaign, failed to follow through when it came to the vote. It will be for lack of motivation to insist that Dr. Paul be allowed the chance to participate FULLY in the election process that ultimately defeats him. In so doing, the power brokers, the party hacks, the media pundits, and the national managers of America’s future, will be able to lay the Ron Paul failure at the feet of the very people who brought him to the brink of success and then walked away. If, or I should say, when that happens, the ruling class will have called it exactly right. We in the Constitutionalist movement have earned the title “empty rhetoric” whiners for quite some time. There is no reason to believe, and certainly no evidence what-so-ever to assume, we won’t carry on in that same “grand” tradition. Complain, blow and go, promise to do something and then just quit. Because of that performance, we are far worse in our failure to America than are the turncoats who have actually done what they said they would do right from the start. We promised to work to bring America back from the brink and when we had her five feet from rescue upon the shore, we let her drown in a foot of water.

That is what we will do with Ron Paul as well. We will worry about our Republican Party membership card. We will feel jilted when we don’t receive a call from state headquarters asking for a donation for candidates who aren’t worth the powder to blow them to hell. We will try to come up with reasons that seem plausible concerning our vote for such a wasted cause in Dr. Paul. However, we won’t hesitate in rah-rahing for the only hope America has at this point in our history and then voting for Rudy, or John or Hillary………..because WE wanted to feel a part of the big picture.

That is why the Federal Reserve still issues a debt riddled currency worth nothing. That is why we begin a war every few years, waste our military into the next spending cycle of arms build-ups, and butcher a generation of young men and women for the sake of a few more Memorial Day speeches. That is why our all-powerful America can stand helpless on our borders as we are invaded by a dirt poor army of Mexican and other worldly renegades. That is why we are giving up every last one of our freedoms in exchange for GPS chips in everything we own, machine gun toting SWAT officers and TASER happy assaulting sheriff’s deputies in every community.

We want to be part of the big picture of what America has become rather than a part of what America could still be. You see, it is easier to talk big picture and pose for something far less. We simply are not willing to put in the effort necessary to create a work of art. As a result we are now part of a grand illusion, nothing more. We are to blame. We are the ones who allowed the Patriot Act and Homeland Security to waltz us in to the North American Union without so much as a question asked about WHY we needed this. By what Constitutional authority did our communistic moron leadership in Washington use to justify this “Union?” We can’t even be trusted on our own street corners. Security cameras must hover over every move we make. And stupid, fearful, gullible, “accept the lies for your own good Americans,” think that this Orwellian security is as good as it gets in this life—until you’re the one doing the funky chicken with two electrical probes stuck in your ass.

That is why Ron Paul will lose. That is why Ron Paul won’t even get to the main event. That is why IF, by some remote chance, Dr. Paul does make it through Iowa, New Hampshire and the upcoming marathon primaries, he runs the risk of assassination by the same world class murders that eliminated JFK, Congressman Larry McDonald and others who saw the international conspiracy face to face, tried to change it, and paid the ultimate price for it.

Who will be to blame? You, and me, that is who. As the clock clicks down the moments until our last major stage show for the 2008 elections, remember this. America’s last days of freedom are upon us. Your only chance to make a final, compelling, resounding and history changing difference, is standing in front of you. Walk past the jokers on the candidate’s stage, put down your long white cane, open your eyes and get to work.

We wish you a peaceful, restful and fulfilling new year.

The Mexican army has confiscated guns from the entire police force of the town of Rosarito, near the Mexican border with the US.

Police disarmed in Mexican town

The Mexican army has confiscated guns from the entire police force of the town of Rosarito, near the Mexican border with the US. Mexican authorities suspect that the town’s police have been colluding with drug trafficking gangs.

Mexican troops carried out a similar crackdown in January on Tijuana police.

The Rosarito force’s 200 guns will be examined to see whether any were used in an attack on the town’s police chief earlier this month.

One of his bodyguards was killed in the attack.

‘Purging the ranks’

“We recognise that the enemy is inside our house and for this reason we are purging the ranks – we need to have confidence in our police,” Baja California state police chief Daniel de la Rosa said.

Drug gangs are strong in Mexico’s border region, which includes Rosarito, a beach resort town south of Tijuana.

Mexican President Felipe Calderon has deployed about 25,000 troops to the region, and to the western state of Michoacan, since taking office 12 months ago.

Some 2,500 people have died so far in 2007 in turf wars between rival Mexican drugs gangs.

Fred: If Someone Else Has to Do It

Dulce et Decorum Est

If Someone Else Has to Do It
http://fredoneverything.net/FOE_Frame_Column.htm

December 28, 2007

I have just received the November issue of the magazine of the American Legion, in which I discover an article by one Ralph Peters, reminding me of why, having joined the Legion on impulse, I have never gone to the Post. The piece is entitled “Twelve Myths of 21st Century War.” A better title might be, “A Pedestrian Compendium of Agonizingly Cliched Jingoism.” (I guess he didn’t think of calling it that.) Anyway, Ralph believes that Americans have become too comfortable, have lost their taste for war, no longer want to pay the butcher’s bill. Ralph is for war. Not much for history, though.

As a diagnostic exercise in intellectual pathology, let’s look at some of these clichés. Ralph speaks of “the terrible price our troops had to pay for freedom” in our various wars. Ah. In exactly which wars did the military protect our freedoms?

The Mexican War of 1847 didn’t protect our freedoms. In the view of Ulysses Grant—a participant in that war, and unconvincing as a limp-wristed liberal—it constituted sheer unjustified aggression. In the Civil War the Confederacy posed no danger to our freedoms, if by “us” one means the Union. The South wanted only to be left alone to misbehave in peace. The Spanish-American War of 1898 was also unjustified aggression: Neither Cuba nor Spain posed the slightest threat to our freedoms. World War I didn’t protect our freedoms, nor probably those of Europe. It was an internal war between colonial powers led by idiots. World War II was justified retaliation for attack and a plausible long-term peril for freedom. The Korean War wasn’t about our freedoms—many observers assert that it took place in Korea—and neither was Viet Nam. We lost the latter and seemed no less free than before. Iraq has nothing to do with our freedoms. It couldn’t threaten the freedom of Guatemala.

One for eight, Ralph. It wouldn’t fly in the NFL.

Ralph, a doubtless well-paid commentator on television, complains that our elites do not fight in the country’s wars. True. Neither do our Ralphs. Relying on his biography in the Wikipedia, I find that he was born in 1952, making him of military age in 1970. The war in Viet Nam being at its height, he went to Europe for ten years. Rough duty, it was. Cirrhosis always looms in those beer gardens. He retired from the Army as a lieutenant colonel in intelligence. (Officers usually being peters, it is not surprising that Peters was an officer.) In the Marines we referred to such people as “admin pogues” or “REMFs,” rear-echelon motherfuckers. I confess to a loathing for those who shelter safely behind the lines yet send others to fight, bowwow, grrrr, woof. Still, his record is not irrelevant to his views. War looks exciting to office workers, but has less appeal to those who are forced to fight. It has even less appeal for those who are hit.

I remember lying in the NSA hospital in Danang, across the way from some guys whose tank had been hit by an RPG. I couldn’t see them because my face was bandaged. Still, we talked. They were badly burned, but seemed likely to live, though with ghastly scars.

The RPG had ruptured the hydraulics, they said, and the cherry juice cooked off. The two across from me had gotten out. The other two crewmen had burned to death. Apparently they screamed a lot. You panic, it hurts, you are blinded, you can’t find the hatches, that kind of thing.

I could tell a lot of stories like that. I don’t because then I get very strange and want to hit something. A loud-mouthed REMF, for example.

Don’t take this as denigration of Ralph, though. Intel work carries its perils. He could have broken a nail on his shift key. Sure, a trip to the nails parlor would fix it, but those things hurt.

Ralph of course speaks of the sacrifices our boys are making. They aren’t making sacrifices. They are being sacrificed. Sacrifices are voluntary, but if the troops decline to fight, they go to jail. The mechanics go this way: Having an all-volunteer army minimizes objections to the war since no one of any influence has to go; if a lot of high-school grads from Tennessee are getting killed, well, it’s not a good thing of course, but who really cares? This facilitates hobbyist wars. A voluntary army is a small army, so you have to send the same troops for tour after tour until they are half-mad and their families wrecked. Who cares? They are just rednecks anyway—not our sort of people, nobody a general would let his daughter date.

What are the current wars about? Ralph thinks, or says he thinks, that our wars serve to protect civilization, decency, and apple pie. This is either boilerplate brainlessness or deliberate cant. Permit me to cite a contrary view:

“War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives…A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small “inside” group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.”

Many will recognize this as the writing of the celebrated leftist Noam Chomsky, but this would be a case of misidentification. The author is, of course, Marine Major General Smedley Butler, holder of two Congressional Medals of Honor, even more than Ralph. But what does Butler know about war, compared to an office-weenie veteran of Europe’s beer chutes?

War is a racket. The military budget is absolutely huge after you add up the usual budget, the expenditures for the current wars, the intel outfits, the black programs, the Veterans Administration, and Homeland Security. Each of these jelly jars attracts its swarm of hungry bees. Always a new weapon is needed. Some threat pullulates in the darkness, ready to defeat the weapons we have. Some of these programs become virtual kingdoms. A fighter can take a quarter century to develop at wonderful cost. Then you get to produce it for decades perhaps, and sell spare parts and upgrades and then you slep it (Service Life Extension Program, become a verb). Money, money, money. An occasional war provides plausibility.

Of course we are in Iraq to protect our freedoms, Ralph. Who could doubt it? Only by coincidence does colonization put American troops on the borders of Iran and Syria, enemies of Israel, and in a position to control by intimidation the oil of Iran, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq, and the UAE. Coincidence, I assure you.

A bloated military requires enemies. Ralph sees one in the Mohammedans, a desperate recourse but the only one available. Enemies have to be frightening so as to justify the budget. The Soviets were serviceable in this regard, having a huge if low-grade military and a history of occupying places. When the commies punked out, no believable bugaboo was at hand, so makeup was applied to Moslems to let them serve until China comes online. Already one reads of the ominous buildup of the wily Chinee. Evil lurks everywhere, fearsome shapes twist in the fog, send money.

Why does Ralph think Iraq threatens our freedoms? Because he is supposed to. To quote Smedley Butler further, “Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.”

Actually it is much more true of officers, who are issued their minds when they sign up. They seldom turn them in upon retirement. Enlisted men know less but think more.

Enough. I can’t stand it. Ralph complains that the presidential candidates have never been in uniform, but I note that Hillary’s combat record exactly equal Ralph’s. Frauds, phonies, poseurs, always saying, “Let’s you and him fight.”

ADDENDUM:

DULCE ET DECORUM EST1

Bent double, like old beggars under sacks,
Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge,
Till on the haunting flares2 we turned our backs
And towards our distant rest3 began to trudge.
Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots
But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind;
Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
Of tired, outstripped5 Five-Nines6 that dropped behind.

Gas!7 Gas! Quick, boys! –  An ecstasy of fumbling,
Fitting the clumsy helmets8 just in time;
But someone still was yelling out and stumbling,
And flound’ring like a man in fire or lime9 . . .
Dim, through the misty panes10 and thick green light,
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning.
In all my dreams, before my helpless sight,
He plunges at me, guttering,11 choking, drowning.

If in some smothering dreams you too could pace
Behind the wagon that we flung him in,
And watch the white eyes writhing in his face,
His hanging face, like a devil’s sick of sin;
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud12 
Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues,
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest13 
To children ardent14 for some desperate glory,
The old Lie; Dulce et Decorum est
Pro patria mori.15

8 October 1917 – March, 1918

1 DULCE ET DECORUM EST – the first words of a Latin saying (taken from an ode by Horace). The words were widely understood and often quoted at the start of the First World War. They mean “It is sweet and right.” The full saying ends the poem: Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori – it is sweet and right to die for your country. In other words, it is a wonderful and great honour to fight and die for your country

Thank you…

For the many kind words concerning my December 28 appearance on James Edwards’ “The Political Cesspool.”  For those who missed it and have asked for a link, you may access their archive of the show here:  The Political Cesspool 12/28/07 (TN)    Fast forward to about a half hour into the show for the beginning of my half-hour segment.

Fox News and the NH GOP exclude Ron Paul from the NH forum

Here is an email I just sent out concerning the upcoming Fox News Forum that Ron Paul has been barred from joining.  If you are as outraged as am I, then I encourage you to communicate with these people, too…..

Subject: Fox News and the NH GOP exclude Ron Paul from the NH forum
So you think you have received lots of emails protesting your exclusion of Ron Paul from the televised Fox News pre-NH Presidential Primary Forum set for Jan 6 on the campus of St. Anselm College?  You haven’t even begun to see email.

Nor have you seen the power of the Internet when turned into a boycott, quite aside from the numerous issues of Federal Election law media access violations on your parts.

All Dr. Paul ever has sought is fair play – a level playing field.  Yet you insist upon rigging the game.
Ron Paul is the only Presidential candidate  in the past century who has been hoisted up spontaneously by the people of America and proclaimed to be our  champion, time and again, by being first in fund raising, first in straw polls, first in telephone polls, first in tv polls and first in on-line polls.
Yet, he is the very man whom you deem not important enough to include in the final pre-election New Hampshire debate!!!
Are you guys out of your minds?  You don’t really think we are going to let you get away with this, do you?
So much for “Live Free or Die.”  Turn in your license plates, you hypocrites! 
Of course, by now we all just laugh out loud when we hear “Fair and balanced,” or “We report, you decide,” from the dark forces at the Faux News Channel.  In fact, it has gotten so bad that, if I am unsure how to feel about an issue, all I need do is tune in to the Faux News Channel and then adopt the opposite of whatever the evil emperor’s minions are pushing.
I’m taking the liberty of bccing this to almost 20,000 of my closest friends throughout America.  You don’t mind, do you?   I’m sure that many of them will want to share with you, too.

Ron Paul Excluded from New Hampshire Forum by Fox News and NH GOP

Ron Paul 2008 Press Release 12/28/2007  10:39 pm EST

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – According to the New Hampshire State Republican Party and an Associated Press report, Republican presidential candidate and Texas Congressman Ron Paul will be excluded from an upcoming forum of Republican candidates to be broadcast by Fox News on January 6, 2008.

“Given Ron Paul’s support in New Hampshire and his recent historic fundraising success, it is outrageous that Dr. Paul would be excluded,” said Ron Paul 2008 campaign chairman Kent Snyder. “Dr. Paul has consistently polled higher in New Hampshire than some of the other candidates who have been invited.”

Snyder continued, “Paul supporters should know that we are continuing to make inquiries with Fox News as to why they have apparently excluded Dr. Paul from this event.”

When Samuel Goldwyn led MGM studios, he reportedly told one of his producers, “If you want to send a message, use Western Union.”

Do You Feel Any Better?

by Charley Reese

When Samuel Goldwyn led MGM studios, he reportedly told one of his producers, “If you want to send a message, use Western Union.”

That’s all the explanation that is necessary for the poor box-office showing of a number of Iraq War films. When people go to the movies, they want to be entertained, not depressed or lectured. Goldwyn understood that; many in Hollywood today do not.

It’s not uncommon these days for a film to enthrall the critics while failing to attract audiences. It’s not uncommon for films that the critics disdain to make a lot of money. The true function of the movies is the same as that of the circus – to thrill us or make us laugh.

After all, those who like garbage can go to the local dump and look at it for free. Those who are fascinated by psychotics and neurotics can volunteer at a mental hospital. Those who want to see stories about bad people competing with other bad people can follow American politics.

The fictional hero, a concept that has been cheapened by airheads on television claiming that every person who wears a uniform is a hero, serves a useful purpose. Human life can be difficult and frustrating. We don’t always attain our goals. We sometimes find ourselves in unpleasant situations.

To see a story about a heroic figure, even if fictional, inspires us. It reminds us that humans can be winners, that evil can be overcome. Humans need role models, and failures, cowards, psychopaths, killers and criminals don’t make good role models.

The author Ayn Rand believed that all works of art were a reflection of the soul of the creator. On a television show, the host asked her, “Well, don’t you think people of whom you disapprove have the right to produce their own works?” She replied, “Of course they have the right, but if I had a garbage can for a soul, I wouldn’t want to put it on public display.”

A great many people in the so-called creative-arts world today do have garbage cans for souls, and they do put them on public display. In most cases, the public demonstrates better tastes than the critics, the museum directors and the grant-givers. Who but an idiot would consider a crucifix in a bottle of urine as art?

Art is a form of communication, and therefore if it is neither intelligible nor beautiful, it is not art. The political concept of egalitarianism doesn’t apply. One painting is not as good as any other, and the same rule applies to movie scripts, plays, performances, sculpture, photography and novels. Great art has always been the difficult and the exceptional. It is never the commonplace.

Movies, being a collaborative form of art, are especially difficult. The contributions of so many people have to mesh perfectly. It doesn’t occur all that often, despite the best efforts. To see the magic created when everything does mesh, check out the old Elia Kazan film On the Waterfront.

A good test of any art is, do you feel better after experiencing it? If not, why bother? It’s quicker to hit your thumb with a hammer than to spend good money and an hour and a half of your life watching a message picture that tells you the world is ugly and hopeless.

The world is not ugly and hopeless. It is beautiful, and life is a grand experience. There is so much beauty to enjoy, and hope never dies if nourished by courage. Happiness is often more of a choice than a circumstance. The world is as it is, but it is our reaction to that world that determines whether we are sad or happy.

Traitor George C. Marshall Exposed By Sen Joe McCarthy

December 29, 2007 1 comment

Traitor George C. Marshall Exposed By Sen Joe McCarthy
The History Of George Catlett Marshall
By Senator Joseph McCarthy
12-29-7

Delivered June 14, 1951, before the United States Senate:

“How can we account for our present situation unless we believe that men high in this Government are concerting to deliver us to disaster? This must be the product of a great conspiracy, a conspiracy on a scale so immense as to dwarf any previous such venture in the history of man. A conspiracy of infamy so black that, when it is finally exposed, its principals shall be forever deserving of the maledictions of all honest men.

Who constitutes the highest circles of this conspiracy? About that we cannot be sure. We are convinced that Dean Acheson, who steadfastly serves the interests of nations other than his own, the friend of Alger Hiss, who supported him in his hour of retribution, who contributed to his defense fund, must be high on the roster. The President? He is their captive. I have wondered, as have you, why he did not dispense with so great a liability as Acheson to his own and his party’s interests. It is now clear to me. In the relationship of master and man, did you ever hear of man firing master? Truman is a satisfactory front. He is only dimly aware of what is going on.

I do not believe that Mr. Truman is a conscious party to the great conspiracy, although it is being conducted in his name. I believe that if Mr. Truman had the ability to associate good Americans around him, be would have behaved as a good American in this most dire of all our crises.

It is when we return to an examination of General Marshall’s record since the spring of 1942 that we approach an explanation of the carefully planned retreat from victory. Let us again review the Marshall record, as I have disclosed it from all the sources available, and all of them friendly. This grim and solitary man it was who, early in World War II, determined to put his impress upon our global strategy, political and military.

It was Marshall, who, amid the din for a “second front now” from every voice of Soviet inspiration, sought to compel the British to invade across the Channel in the fall of 1942 upon penalty of our quitting the war in Europe.

It was Marshall who, after North Africa had been secured, took the strategic direction of the war out of Roosevelt’s hands and – who fought the British desire, shared by Mark Clark, to advance from Italy into the eastern plains of Europe ahead of the Russians.

It was a Marshall-sponsored memorandum, advising appeasement of Russia In Europe and the enticement of Russia into the far-eastern war, circulated at Quebec, which foreshadowed our whole course at Tehran, at Yalta, and until now in the Far East.

It was Marshall who, at Tehran, made common cause with Stalin on the strategy of the war in Europe and marched side by side with him thereafter.

It was Marshall who enjoined his chief of military mission in Moscow under no circumstances to “irritate” the Russians by asking them questions about their forces, their weapons, and their plans, while at the same time opening our schools, factories, and gradually our secrets to them in this count.

It was Marshall who, as Hanson Baldwin asserts, himself referring only to the “military authorities,” prevented us having a corridor to Berlin. So it was with the capture and occupation of Berlin and Prague ahead of the Russians.

It was Marshall who sent Deane to Moscow to collaborate with Harriman in drafting the terms of the wholly unnecessary bribe paid to Stalin at Yalta. It was Marshall, with Hiss at his elbow and doing the physical drafting of agreements at Yalta, who ignored the contrary advice of his senior, Admiral Leahy, and of MacArtbur and Nimitz in regard to the folly of a major land invasion of Japan; who submitted intelligence reports which suppressed more truthful estimates in order to support his argument, and who finally induced Roosevelt to bring Russia into the Japanese war with a bribe that reinstated Russia in its pre-1904 imperialistic position in Manchuria-an act which, in effect, signed the death warrant of the Republic of China.

It was Marshall, with Acheson and Vincent eagerly assisting, who created the China policy which, destroying China, robbed us of a great and friendly ally, a buffer against the Soviet imperialism with which we are now at war.

It was Marshall who, after long conferences with Acheson and Vincent, went to China to execute the criminal folly of the disastrous Marshall mission.

It was Marshall who, upon returning from a diplomatic defeat for the United States at Moscow, besought the reinstatement of forty millions in lend-lease for Russia.

It was Marshall who, for 2 years suppressed General Wedemeyer’s report, which is a direct and comprehensive repudiation of the Marshall policy.

It was Marshall who, disregarding Wedemeyer’s advices on the urgent need for military supplies, the likelihood of China’s defeat without ammunition and equipment, and our “moral obligation” to furnish them, proposed instead a relief bill bare of military support.

It was the State Department under Marshall, with the wholehearted support of Michael Lee and Remington in the Commerce Department, that sabotaged the $125,000,000 military-aid bill to China in 194S.

It was Marshall who fixed the dividing line for Korea along the thirty-eighth parallel, a line historically chosen by Russia to mark its sphere of interest in Korea.

It is Marshall’s strategy for Korea which has turned that war into a pointless slaughter, reversing the dictum of Von Clausewitz and every military theorist since him that the object of a war is not merely to kill but to impose your will on the enemy.

It is Marshall-Acheson strategy for Europe to build the defense of Europe solely around the Atlantic Pact nations, excluding the two great wells of anti-Communist manpower in Western Germany and Spain and spurning the organized armies of Greece and Turkey-another case of following the Lattimore advice of “let them fall but don’t let it appear that we pushed them.”

It is Marshall who, advocating timidity as a policy so as not to annoy the forces of Soviet imperialism in Asia, had admittedly put a brake on the preparations to fight, rationalizing his reluctance on the ground that the people are fickle and if war does not come, will hold him to account for excessive zeal.

What can be made of this unbroken series of decisions and acts contributing to the strategy of defeat? They cannot be attributed to incompetence. If Marshall were merely stupid, the laws of probability would dictate that part of his decisions would serve this country’s interest. If Marshall is innocent of guilty intention, how could he be trusted to guide the defense of this country further? We have declined so precipitously in relation to the Soviet Union in the last 6 years. How much swifter may be our fall into disaster with Marshall at the helm? Where Will all this stop? That is not a rhetorical question: Ours is not a rhetorical danger. Where next will Marshall carry us? It is useless to suppose that his nominal superior will ask him to resign. He cannot even dispense with Acheson.

What is the objective of the great conspiracy? I think it is clear from what has occurred and is now occurring: to diminish the United States in world affairs, to weaken us militarily, to confuse our spirit with talk of surrender in the Far East and to impair our will to resist evil. To what end? To the end that we shall be contained, frustrated and finally: fall victim to Soviet intrigue from within and Russian military might from without. Is that farfetched? There have been many examples in history of rich and powerful states which have been corrupted from within, enfeebled and deceived until they were unable to resist aggression. . . .

It is the great crime of the Truman administration that it has refused to undertake the job of ferreting the enemy from its ranks. I once puzzled over that refusal. The President, I said, is a loyal American; why does he not lead in this enterprise? I think that I know why he does not. The President is not master in his own house. Those who are master there not only have a desire to protect the sappers and miners – they could not do otherwise. They themselves are not free. They belong to a larger conspiracy, the world-wide web of which has been spun from Moscow. It was Moscow, for example, which decreed that the United States should execute its loyal friend, the Republic of China. The executioners were that well-identified group headed by Acheson and George Catlett Marshall.

How, if they would, can they, break these ties, how return to simple allegiance to their native land? Can men sullied by their long and dreadful record afford us leadership in the world struggle with the enemy? How can a man whose every important act for years had contributed to the prosperity of the enemy reverse himself? The reasons for his past actions are immaterial. Regardless of why he has done what be did, be has done it and the momentum of that course bears him onward. . .

The time has come to halt this tepid, milk-and-water acquiescence which a discredited administration, ruled by disloyalty, sends down to us. The American may belong to an old culture, he may be beset by enemies here and abroad, he may be distracted by the many words of counsel that assail him by day and night, but he is nobody’s fool. The time has come for us to realize that the people who sent us here expect more than time-serving from us. The American who has never known defeat in war, does not expect to be again sold down the river in Asia. He does not want that kind of betrayal. He has had betrayal enough. He has never failed to fight for his liberties since George Washington rode to Boston in 1775 to put himself at the head of a band of rebels unversed in war. He is fighting tonight, fighting gloriously in a war on a distant American frontier made inglorious by the men he can no longer trust at the head of our affairs.

The America that I know, and that other Senators know, this vast and teeming and beautiful land, this hopeful society where the poor share the table of the rich as never before in history, where men of all colors, of all faiths, are brothers as never before in history, where great deeds have been done and great deeds are yet to do, that America deserves to be led not to humiliation or defeat, but to victory.

The Congress of the United States is the people’s last hope, a free and open forum of the people’s representatives. We felt the pulse of the people’s response to the return of MacArthur. We know what it meant. The people, no longer trusting their executive, turn to us, asking that we reassert the constitutional prerogative of the Congress to declare the policy for the United States.

The time has come to reassert that prerogative, to oversee the conduct of this war, to declare that this body must have the final word on the disposition of Formosa and Korea. They fell from the grasp of the Japanese empire through our military endeavors, pursuant to a declaration of war made by the Congress of the United States on December 8, 1941. If the Senate speaks, as is its right, the disposal of Korea and Formosa can be made only by a treaty which must be ratified by this body. Should the administration dare to defy such a declaration, the Congress has abundant recourses which I need not spell out.

Denmark-based Saxo Bank predicts Ron Paul presidency in 2008, saying US economy will plunge into a depression prior to the election

Bank predicts Ron Paul win, US slump
Thu, 27 Dec 2007 06:08:48

Denmark-based Saxo Bank predicts Ron Paul presidency in 2008, saying US economy will plunge into a depression prior to the election.

The Bank predicted that Ron Paul, US congressman and Republican presidential candidate, will win the US 2008 presidential election.

Saxo Bank says the US economy will shrink by 25% and the Chinese economy will decrease by 40%. The economic downturn will come about as a result of the housing crash.

Ron Paul has been critical of the Federal Reserve and has blamed the Federal Reserve for causing the real estate bubble and crash. Paul has said that the loose monetary policy of the Fed had artificially inflated real estate prices which lead to the collapse.

Paul supports ‘Sound Money’ and opposes the Federal Reserve’s ‘Inflation Tax’ and says that he wants to prevent a dollar collapse.

Saxo Bank also predicts $175 a barrel for oil and the price of grain will double. Some have predicted that oil will climb to $250 a barrel if the US attacks Iran. The bank also predicts that 30% of large building companies will go bankrupt.

New super-cameras mean no hiding for drivers who smoke, eat or use a phone

New super-cameras mean no hiding for drivers who smoke, eat or use a phone

RAY MASSEY
UK Daily Mail
Saturday, December 29, 2007

Digital speed cameras which capture drivers smoking or eating at the wheel are being introduced nationwide in a new move to hammer motorists.

Drivers will also face fines, bans and even jail for infringements such as driving without a seatbelt, using a hand-held mobile phone or overtaking across double white lines.

The hi-tech DVD cameras, which have instant playback, will also be used to provide photographic evidence against those eating sandwiches or rolling-up cigarettes at the wheel.

These are now considered serious offences under new guidelines drawn up for prosecutors.

The development will massively increase the number of fines and prosecutions against normally law-abiding drivers for relatively minor offences.

As well as being fined £60 and given three points on their licences, motorists now face two years in jail if their actions are considered to have been a factor in dangerous driving.

Virtually every police force in England, Wales and Scotland is now equipped with the new digital cameras. They were given Home Office approval in April but are quietly being rolled out nationwide.

More than 100 have been sold. The manufacturers have said their order book is full until next April.

The DVD cameras can operate as conventional speed traps. But thanks to the instant playback, they also double up to photograph motorists flouting laws other than speeding.

Set up by a police officer on sites such as motorway bridges, they constantly scan the cars and can digitally record drivers behind the wheel committing a vast array of minor traffic offences.

Crucially the new technology, called Concept, allows officers to play back the footage to locate, view and capture the offence instantly.

Photographs taken using the device show how effective it is, capturing pictures such as a man apparently steering his Renault with his bare feet and the driver of an Alfa Romeo with a mobile phone clamped to his ear.

The Real Aggressor

December 29, 2007 Leave a comment

The Real Aggressor

by Murray N. Rothbard
by Murray N. Rothbard


DIGG THIS

This article originally appeared in the April 1954 issue of Faith and Freedom.

A sign of our time is the split-personality of the conservatives. Many to the right of center are off on a schizophrenic pursuit of both liberty and collectivism.

In domestic affairs this regrettable condition is gradually being recognized for what it is. But the time is nigh for conservative foreign policy, as well, to be psychoanalyzed in hope of a cure!

Conservatives call for free trade and free enterprise, yet also clamor for absolute embargoes on trade with Communist nations. Have they forgotten that both parties to free exchange benefit from trade? For our government or any others to prohibit trade is a vicious example of socialistic policy; it injures the Communist countries to be sure; it also injures us.

Another example: conservatives are calling for lower taxes and less government control, while on the other hand they are calling for a virtual holy war against Russia and China, with all the costliness, death, and statism that such a war would necessarily entail. Such a holy war would be immoral, inexpedient, and ill-conceived at best – in this day of weapons for mass murder, such a call is near insanity.

Yet while conservatives once preferred peace and “isolationism,” in our day they appeal in vague terms for liberation of foreign nations and hint that “We’ve been at war with Communism for years, so let’s get it over with.” They bitterly denounce European “allies” for being neutralistic and therefore “unreliable,” while they praise Chiang, Rhee, and Franco for being anti-Communist and therefore “reliable friends of the United States.” They denounce our having entered the Korean War; yet denounce the Korean Truce and call for programs to carry war ever upward and onward.

The notion – very widespread – that we should not have entered the Korean War, but once in it should have launched a total war against China, flouts rules of logic. The best preventive of war is to refrain from warring – period. If we had agreed to a cease-fire when the Commies suggested it, or had pulled out of Korea altogether (even better), we would have saved thousands of American and Korean lives.

A “Blunt” Point

Here I think one point should be made and made bluntly. Some people may prefer death to Communism; and this is perfectly legitimate for them – although death may not often be a solution to any problem. But suppose they also try to impose their will on other people who might prefer life under Communism to death in a “free world” cemetery. Is not forcing them into mortal combat a pure and simple case of murder? And is not anti-Communist murder as evil as murder committed by Communists?

Many “isolationists,” in concerning themselves with the liberation or security of foreign nations, have in truth become outright internationalists. Instead of praising European neutralism – the equivalent of real American isolationism – they now demand collective-security organizations such as NATO.

Yet faith in international collectivism has already dragged us into one disastrous war after another during the present century. And now it is a faith in world government, supposedly restricted to the enforcement of so-called world law. This is a fantasy in which the various world states are seen as resembling a family of policemen taking it upon themselves to enforce a preservation of the status quo.

The result of this international-collectivistic approach is that the United States is rapidly going down the classic warpath. And the path has all the signposts so unerringly pointed out by isolationist writers in the 1930s concerning the First World War, and in the 1940s concerning the Second World War: militarism, propaganda of hate, press distortions, atrocity stories about the enemy (and silence about our own atrocities), chauvinistic vainglory such as pride that “America has won all its wars” (but with the help of strong allies badly outnumbering the enemy), and in general, the “emotional complex of fear and vaunting” noted by Garet Garrett, which Harry Elmer Barnes calls the “1984 pattern.”

The tragic part of the whole situation is that it is the erstwhile isolationists, the ones who above all others should know better, who are leading the war parade.

Sinking ever deeper into a war psychosis, these conservatives have failed to perceive that our whole problem today, broadly speaking, is ideological rather than military! If we carefully examine the facts we will find that the most commonly feared threat to peace – the Communist bloc – has been fairly scrupulous about not committing military aggression. All the Communist successes since the end of World War II have been through internal Communist rebellions. Korea itself was a civil war, and there is even there considerable evidence that it was begun by the South. Russia did not intervene directly in that war, and China intervened not only after the United States did, but only when our troops reached her borders.

Patience, plus sponsoring of Communist parties and philosophy abroad, seems to be the Soviet plan. In brief, the Russian military menace is for the most part a bogey; the Commies are probably truthful in their assertion that their arming is meant in defense. The statement of Defense Secretary Wilson recently that Russian air production has been concentrated on defensive jets rather than offensive heavy bombers (such as we are building) would tend to bear out this point.

As a long-term threat as well, we should have no fear of military conquest by the Russians, or by the Chinese either. They began as backward countries and, since we know Communism to be a relatively inefficient economic system, we need not worry about their offensive military might – provided we let our own industries grow without the hamperings of a garrison state.

What we really have to combat is all statism, and not just the Communist brand. To take up arms against one set of socialists is not the way to stop socialism – indeed it is bound to increase socialism as all modern wars have done.

The Realm of Battle

The battle can only be waged in the realm of ideas and reason. Man shall only tighten his chains – and those holding other men – if he takes up arms simply against one foreign statist faction. Even if Russia and China both were to be wiped out tomorrow, Communism would continue to exist (just as it did before 1917) so long as people continue to give credence to its collectivist tenets. To attempt to stamp out heresy by force is the method of vindictive children, rather than the method of rational human beings.

But some conservatives are failing to recognize that the enemy is statism, rather than simply Communism. And the fundamental reason, obviously, is that there is still an inadequate understanding of the very nature of the State.

It is a fundamental libertarian proposition that the State only has the right to use force to defend the person and property of individuals against force.

Actually, among libertarians and conservatives, there is agreement on that proposition; but most conservatives usually commit the fatal error of stopping there. Considering the analysis of the State closed, they conclude, “Therefore the State should be limited to what is necessary for defense purposes.” Ponder the grave consequences of that reasoning:

Peter is a peaceful citizen, devoted to productive work and minding his own affairs. By what right does any person or set of persons, in a group called the State, come to Peter and force him to give up money for the purpose of protecting him against possible future invasions of his person and property? The ethical answer can only be, no right whatsoever.

Surely we have all heard of and ridiculed the racketeering “protective syndicates,” which force merchants to purchase “protection” at an exorbitant fee. Yet the State syndicate manages to impose its own “protection,” and to collect from Peter, with nary a single eyebrow being raised against it.

Not a Self-Respecting Racketeer

What is worse, the State gang does not even leave the scene of crime after collecting, as any self-respecting racketeer would do. Instead it hangs around to harass Peter and his kind, insisting on continually higher sums of money in tribute, pressing the Peters into the State army when competing robber bands attack, coercing the Peters to salute the State battle flag, to acknowledge the State as their sovereign, to regard the decrees of State as valid laws to be obeyed by all righteous persons. What would we think of the State gang, and what would we think of people who allowed themselves to be duped by the rulers’ propaganda to believe that this is all well and good, natural, and necessary?

Yet, being duped by State officials is precisely what mankind has been putting up with for thousands of years.

Some might say that all this has been put to a stop in those nations which have turned to democracy. But libertarians are surely not so enamored of the voting process that they fail to perceive the flaws in the democracy argument. What democracy has done is simply to increase the number of State groups. The question becomes: Are we much better off now, having several groups (or “parties”) of would-be plunderers, each desiring the control of a good thing? I think the answer must be No.

The only advantage of a democracy is that it provides scope (strictly limited) for peaceful change of State rulers via ballot boxes, instead of requiring bloody revolutions, coup d’états, etc. Instead of having bloody civil wars over the spoils of State, the robber gangs have their subjects vote every few years as to which gang will rule them. Never, however, do they so much as hint that the people may have a choice as to whether they wish to retain the State system itself.

Caught on the Horns

Thus, conservatives who say that the State should be limited to what is necessary for defense purposes, are caught from the start on the horns of a great dilemma. For the State has been conceived in original sin. Any State, even the best intentioned, subsists by means of coercion. If Henry Thoreau says: I don’t want your protection, so will pay no more taxes; he goes to jail – sent there by his “representatives.” If he attempts to argue by saying: I wish to pay for my defense through privately financed police and judiciary companies, which I believe will be cheaper and far better than your coercive monopoly – the same punishment is meted out to him, or worse.

In a libertarian society though, it is the individual, not the State, which has the primary choice as to whether and how his defenses shall be maintained. As an individual he has the right to fight in his own or another’s defense; or, if he adjudges it foolhardy or disbelieves in fighting altogether, he has the right not to fight at all. And similarly, he has the right to subscribe voluntarily to police forces and courts which offer defense, but also the right not to subscribe. No one has the right to force him to fight or to pay others to fight for him. If the State forces him to pay tax moneys for State-conceived defense purposes, the State thereby deprives him of his individual rights.

To sum up: every State oppresses its subjects and pillages them; every State functions – as A.J. Nock put it – as if having a “monopoly (or attempted monopoly) of crime” in its territory, asserting its sovereignty over a certain land area, and exacting compulsory levies on the inhabitants.

Instead of having a group of policemen, we have in actuality a group of gangster States aggressing against their subject-citizens; forming alliances, and from time to time fighting to increase their share of the spoils collected from the various inhabitants of the earth. War is an attack by one robber band against another.

Surely under these prevailing conditions, the supposed morality of every State’s leaping to the defense of an alleged victim State becomes highly dubious indeed.

Yet no matter how evil States are, we must accept the fact that they do exist, and that there is no likely prospect of their imminent disappearance. In a world of States and statism, then, what should the libertarian conservatives’ attitude be with regard to international discord?

Municipal police have one rather appealing principle: they look the other way during a gang war. If one set of gangsters “aggresses” against another set, the police do not participate. Why waste the taxpayers’ money protecting one gangster against another?

The Status Quo Might Not Be Moral

It is a version of that principle, I think, that ought to be applied to foreign affairs. For if any world police force were to be set up to punish “aggressors,” the only result would be increased bloodshed and real aggression all over the world in an attempt to freeze the existing status quo, which might be a status quo no more moral, and perhaps less just, than any other possible one.

We could hardly blame those States that came late into the struggle for territorial influence, if they turned a jaundiced eye on the hypocritical moralizing of the entrenched aggressor States who would invoke world law to forestall new depredations. States have always gained their territories by force, and any given land area has probably been fought over and changed hands many times. In almost every case of “aggression” each party to the dispute, and often many parties, have some sort of historical claim to the disputed territory. New territorial wars are no more “aggressive” than the present continuation of old conquests.

What is more, there always arises the difficulty of spotting the “real aggressor” in any particular war. When both sides are armed camps, when there are many provocations, secret treaties, deals and frontier incidents, the question of unraveling the actual starter of war, let alone who is the more morally wrong, becomes a matter for the careful research of future historians.

Sad are the few facts which do not remain for historians to reveal. These facts are that the people who end up conquered are subjected to theexactions and tyrannies of the master State; while the original subjects of the conquering State are forced not only to fight the wars but also to foot the bills. The wider a State attempts to extend its sphere of influence, indeed, the greater becomes its coercion against all concerned.

Once we clearly understand the ever-coercive nature of States, and the ever-recurrent warfare between them, we will no longer want to offer ourselves up unthinkingly before the international-collectivist altar inscribed, “Necessary for Defense.” Instead we will keep these three facts in mind: that each State’s jurisdiction is limited, at any given time, to a certain geographical area over which it has assumed the power and responsibility of defense; that within this area the State builds its defensive power by means of compulsory levies; and that these levies involve immorality of conduct, because the act of forcing people to pay taxes for military defense usurps each individual’s right to choose how and whether he will want it.

The basic aim of our foreign policy then will become the greatest possible reduction of the amount of immorality; in other words, reduction and limitation of the State’s area of assumed defense. Upon our escutcheon will be inscribed these words: “Let there be peace. Let not the State interfere in the affairs of other States.”

If the people of Korea are being oppressed, we will recognize that the oppressor State is vicious; but we will at the same time recognize that it would be immoral for the United States government as such to interfere in any way. For in so interfering, the American State would commit those of its citizens who have no wish to be committed, to battle for Korean citizens.

Interference, moreover, would in no way insure that the foreign people thus “liberated” would be any the better off for it. Had the North won a quick victory in the recent Korean War, the Koreans might well have been left less unhappy and even economically better off under Communism than they are now under Rhee. Millions have been slaughtered by the weapons of both sides, and those remaining have been left to contemplate the utter destruction of their property.

If some Americans wish to liberate the people of China or Poland, let them raise a private expeditionary force and private finances to go over and attempt liberation – but let them not try to commit the United States, and as a result, myself, to any such scheme. For a second wrong simply will not make a right; we should not add to oppression at home in a hope to effect some sort of “liberation” elsewhere.

Hold Down the State

The moral policy for libertarians is to see that the scope of war is kept as localized as possible. The State must be held to its responsibility to enter no foreign war – and to provoke no war via rash and irresponsible statements, official condemnations of other governments, or inordinate armament buildups.

Even if our nation is directly attacked by another, justice for those who look askance upon war efforts and levies still requires that the scope of State action be kept within responsible limits. The goal of all State action at such times must be a negotiated peace, so that the burden of destruction and taxes will cease. The State should do its best to put limits and rules on the war, and to outlaw as many weapons of destruction as possible – starting with the worst. Furthermore, so long as the emergency endures, all efforts should be kept voluntary – without conscription, economic controls, or inflation.

No purpose can be served when additional people are caused to lose their lives anywhere because of war. The fact is, the quarrel in modern large-scale war is not actually between the subject people, but between their States. The interest of the subjects is always in peace – since it is only in peace that full freedom for self-development can be attained. War decidedly increases the dangers of losing further individual freedom – to the “domestic” enemy, if not to the “foreign” enemy.

In short, the individual subject will want the State to limit its objectives, to defend the country’s territory rather than to attack, to abstain from a drive to victory and unconditional surrender, and to negotiate peace at the earliest possible moment. Moreover, if full terms of peace cannot be immediately decided upon, the most important thing becomes negotiation of a truce to stop the mutual slaughter.

If Men Are To Forge Fences

Not arms but public opinion must be the basic weapon if men are to forge fences between themselves and the master States. By force of public opinion men must resist conscription; must insist on absolute nonintervention in foreign wars; and, where warfare is in progress, must call for immediate negotiations and an end to the bloodletting. And most important, there must be a re-establishment of those once-revered rules of war that prevented innocent civilians from being harmed.

As a corollary, there must be a re-establishment of the old-fashioned, pre-1914 type of international law, as distinguished from the sort of world law the present-day internationalists would attempt to impose. The old-time international law, as I understand it, set up rules by means of custom (and not by force) which carefully defined the difference between neutrality and intervention, and which declared sharply defined areas of neutrals’ rights and belligerents’ rights. Old-fashioned international law facilitated the maintenance of neutrality and served the important purpose of greatly limiting the scope of any wars that arose.

Public opinion could then be educated to impose this type of international law to limit the scope of State action, just as Americans once used the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The United Nations, unfortunately, does not afford a good breeding ground for such constructive principles of international law and order. For it is the seedling of a world State, a master imperialistic power that would dominate the citizens of the entire subject world. Furthermore, the UN is basically committed to collective-security warfare against “aggression” and is therefore a warmongering organization in its very essence.

The Reds Are Sane

Somebody has rightly said that the choice now is: coexistence or nonexistence. Any sane person prefers coexistence, and I am sure that the Reds are sane. The issue facing the world, therefore, has to do with nurturing a will and a way to talk things over – to negotiate – and to find lines of fruitful negotiation. Almost anything that would ease present tensions and provocations would be welcome.

But we must negotiate honestly and sincerely, with our foremost aim being an agreement for a jointly planned disarmament. There must be no more secret deals with a Yalta-Potsdam odor, which would arbitrarily hand over territory and peoples of other countries to Russia. And there must be no idea of simply bolstering our “allies” by making a mere show of negotiation. On many issues, such as Korea, Germany, etc., it would be better to just retire completely from the fray.

Yet the nurturing of a new era – of negotiation, of return to the pre-1914 type of international law, and of public opinion against statism – will all take time. Meanwhile, along what lines should our American government take immediate action?

To begin, the United States should pull out of the United Nations, and also out of the North Atlantic Treaty Alliance.

Secondly, our government should repudiate all other foreign commitments and agreements and foreign aid or “security” endeavors, while withdrawing the military from foreign bases.

As good a place to start as any is at Trieste. American and British troops have absolutely no business there. They are the original meddlers and interlopers. Beginning with the mulcting of American and Triestino citizens alike of funds for occupational expenses, these troops have proceeded to the shooting down of inhabitants. Clearly the withdrawal of our foreign-based troops is one of the primary orders of business, leaving interested parties to settle things for themselves.

Thirdly, the United States government should “recognize” Red China – on the basis of the old-fashioned international law principles of recognition. Prior to the interventionism of Woodrow Wilson, it was always understood that recognition – especially by a neutralist state – does not imply moral approval. The doctrine that it does has already been responsible for too many wars and bloodshed (vide the Stimson policy toward Japan). Recognition simply means recognizing the physical existence of a state – it is an act of sanity, not an act of praise. Whether we like it or not, Chiang is now ruler of Formosa alone – and no mere recognition or nonrecognition will alter that fact.

Unfetter World Trade

Fourthly, there should be reestablishment of free and unhampered trade with the Communist countries, by our own nation and by all other nations. Free world trade would not only help break down the iron curtain, but would benefit anti-Communist nations as well as Communist. Nothing could be more inane than the present program of “helping other nations to help themselves” while at the same time coercively restricting their opportunities to engage in profitable commerce.

Above all, our foreign policy must not be self-defeating; it must be consistent; it must pursue peace instead of war; and it must advance individual American freedom.

Paul: Fox News is scared of me

Email|Link By James Pindell December 29, 2007 01:40 PM
PLAISTOW, N.H. — Ron Paul said the decision to exclude him from a debate on Fox News Sunday the weekend before the New Hampshire Primary is proof that the network “is scared” of him.

“They are scared of me and don’t want my message to get out, but it will,” Paul said in an interview at a diner here. “They are propagandists for this war and I challenge them on the notion that they are conservative.”

Paul’s staff said they are beginning to plan a rally that will take place at the same time the 90-minute debate will air on television. It will be taped at Saint Anselm College in Goffstown.

“They will not win this skirmish,” he promised.

The Fox debate occurs less than 24 hours after two back to back Republican and Democratic debates on the same campus sponsored by ABC News, WMUR-TV and the social networking website Facebook.

Paul, the Republican Texas Congressman, was wrapping up his final day of campaigning in New Hampshire until the Iowa Caucuses on Thursday.

He spent much of the day campaigning at diners in Manchester and Plaistow and downtown walks in Derry and Exeter.

How Sodomy Was Sold To America

How Sodomy Was Sold To America

Nicholas Jackson
December 29, 2007
NewsWithViews.com

Sodomy, n. A crime against nature. –American Dictionary of the English language, Noah Webster 1828.

Words mean something. Noah Webster knew that well. Just hearing the word sodomy sounds harsh. This is evidence of how far we have slid.

“Whoever, therefore wishes to ruin a nation, has only to get this vice introduced; for it is extremely difficult to extirpate it where it has once taken root because it can be propagated with much secrecy… and when we perceive that it has once got a footing in any country, however, powerful and flourishing, we may venture as politicians to predict that the foundation of its future decline is laid and that after some hundred years it will no longer be the same…powerful country it is at the present.” (Sir John David Michaelis, Commentaries on the Laws of Moses, 1814.

In 1988, 74.9% of the American Public thought that sex between two people of the same gender was always wrong. By 1998, the percentage had fallen to 54.6% (National Opinion research Center, The University of Chicago.)

Perhaps no other movement in the history of America has had so much success in such a short time. We must examine the homosexual agenda’s success in changing American Culture and attempting to redefine the family, not only to understand how to combat it, but to provide a glimpse of the potential of the American Church if only we were so vocal and dedicated.

The Homosexual Agenda

The strategy was revealed 20 years ago in a 1987 article titled, “The Overhauling of Straight America,” and a 1989 book titled “After the Ball.” In which two radicalized homosexual activists Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen published their plan. Both Kirk and Madsen were highly educated men. Kirk was a Harvard educated researcher in neuropsychiatry, and Madsen had a doctorate in politics from Harvard, and was an expert on public persuasion tactics and social marketing. (The Marketing of Evil, David Kupelian, p.23)

Their strategy was six fold:

1. Talk about gays and gayness as loudly and often as possible.
2. Portray gays as victims, not aggressive challengers.
3. Give homosexual protectors a “just” cause.
4. Make gays look good.
5. Make the victimizers look bad.
6. Solicit Funds(Get corporate America and major foundations to financially support the homosexual cause. (The Homosexual Agenda: (Exposing the Principal Threat to Religious Freedom Today. Alan Sears & Craig Osten, p. 18)

Let’s briefly examine these strategies.

Firstly, Kirk and Madsen in The Overhauling of Straight America, write in regards to talking about gays and gayness, “The principal behind this advice is simple: almost all behavior begins to look normal if you are exposed to enough of it at close quarters and among your acquaintances.” (Sears and Osten p. 18)

“The main thing is talk about gayness until the issue becomes thoroughly tiresome.” According to Sears and Osten this will have one of two effects. “1. It convinces people that homosexual behavior is just another lifestyle, or 2. causes them to get so sick of the issue that they throw their hands up in disgust or become exhausted and then withdraw. Either way the homosexual activists win.” (Sears and Osten 17-18)

Portraying homosexuals as an oppressed victim is the second part of Madsen and Kirk’s strategy because it plays into all Americans sense of fairness. This can be seen in the framing of the AIDS debate (primarily spread by homosexual behavior) as a civil rights issue (AIDS was formally called GRIDS, G stands for ‘Gay”) He who frames the argument wins.

This was also seen through the Matthew Shepherd murder case when two non-religious men killed another man for drugs. The case was blown up by the national media to be a homophobic hate crime spurred on by “hateful” evangelicals preaching against sin. In the media Christians are then compared to Hitler and the KKK, instead of Mother Theresa, William Wilberforce (the Christian who abolished the British slave-trade), and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

By piggybacking on the civil rights issue and slandering blacks, homosexuality has become the cause de jour to appeal to liberal sensitivities of fairness and justice. The “Gay Rights” issue is now seen as a “just cause.” Examples of this in Hollywood are the film Philadelphia, where Tom Hanks is fired from his job by discriminating hate-mongers, and Broke Back Mountain where Heath Ledger can’t really live out the true love and life he wants because of an oppressive society. Rather than showing two men living in San Francisco with high discretionary income and a lavish lifestyle they are shown as oppressed and victimized. This idea of making the homosexual appear oppressed and the victimizer bad can adroitly be perpetuated showing scenes of Fred Phelps, (of God Hates Fags lore) protesting funerals which furthers the myth that Christians are mean and bigoted people.

Lastly, soliciting funds for radicalized homosexual groups has been widely successful. Ford Motors, Kraft, Home Depot, Proctor & Gamble and many more corporations indirectly or directly contribute to the advancement of the homosexual agenda. They do this through sponsorship, advertising, donations, and legislative endorsement. Careful coordination with corporations and the media have been tools in the propaganda campaign to mainstream homosexual sodomy. These are the engines that drive the homosexual activist groups such as GLSEN (which are proliferating our schools), and Equality Forum (A lobbying and legislative homosexual group.)

Eric Pollard, the founder of ACT-UP (a militant homosexual group) claimed Hitler’s Mein Kampf as a model for the “gay” agenda. (Sears and Osten, p. 26)

“Something of even the most insolent lie will always remain and stick- a fact which all the great lie-virtuosi and lying-clubs in this world know only too well and also make the most treacherous use of… By clever and persevering use of propaganda even heaven can be represented as hell to the people, and conversely the most wretched life as paradise.” (Mein Kampf)

Kirk and Madsen reiterate Pollards ideas, “We have in mind a strategy as calculated and powerful as that which gays are accused of employing by their enemies. It’s time to learn from Madison Avenue, to roll out the big guns. Gays must launch a large scale campaign to reach straights through the mainstream media. We’re talking about propaganda.” (Sears and Osten p. 27) So far they are achieving their carefully laid out goals.

The Human Face of Homosexuality

We all know friends who are “gay,” and many are genuinely nice people.

What is the real face of homosexuality? Is it the radicalized homosexual trying to legalize sex between men and boys (NAMBLA)? Is it someone like Rosie O’ Donnell or Ellen? Or is it our coworker or family member, our son or our daughter? Is it the people who shut down the local parks for public sex within eyesight of children, leaving condoms strewn around the park? Perhaps it is all of these for sin has degrees of evil.

In my own life I see various shades of this sin that traps so many. A friend of mine once shared with me that he watched his father commit suicide when he was 15. Since then he has engaged in hundreds of acts with other men and is currently in a “monogamous relationship.” Perhaps he is seeking the love of the father he never got. Another young man I know suffered seizures, and increasing paralysis, and died earlier this year from AIDS which he contracted from earlier involvement in homosexual sin. Two friends I know have parents that left their families for another “same sex” partner. Their families have been torn asunder. Behind the glitzy glamour of Hollywood are real people with real sin which has real consequences. Who will speak the truth to these people, to these families?

Counting the Cost

Last year I submitted a resolution to the State Convention of Ohio Baptists urging Christian parents to pull their children out of public school and either home school or provide Christian private education. It was a wakeup call to pastors and parents in our state newspaper due to the advancing homosexual agenda and Darwinian dogma in public schools. Within the next few weeks homosexual activists wrote in and repeated the tired old saw calling me a bigot, or exclaiming that I was spreading hate. One person said there was no gay agenda in schools that the only agenda was for her to get up go to work and pay taxes like every “normal” American. Being called names in a newspaper or blog is a small price to pay. In the future it may not be so easy.

We have already seen in Canada where a free speech chill has come after the passing of hate crimes legislation. The same legislation is being advanced in America (SB 777 in California, and through hate crimes bills.) Canadian Pastors have been fined for speaking out against homosexuality. Programs like Focus on the Family are not able to be aired in Canada.

It is time to count the cost. We have all the freedoms and opportunity now to confront this sin. But time is running out. Will we sit cowardly in our stained glass fortresses while Sir John David Michaelis’ words ring prophetic towards America, “that the foundation of its future decline is laid?”

If a 1-2 percent minority can change the face of American Culture and public policy, then anything can be achieved.

We have both the numbers, and the truth. If speaking the truth is a hate crime. Let us be found guilty.

It’s time for Christians to “get after the ball.”

CNN and Hillary Destabilize Pakistan

CNN and Hillary Destabilize Pakistan

By Cliff Kincaid

December 29, 2007
NewsWithViews.com

In the wake of Benazir Bhutto’s assassination, Wolf Blitzer of CNN made much of an e-mail, exclusively provided to him by a close associate of Bhutto and a Hillary Clinton supporter, casting blame on Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf for her murder. We can now understand why Musharraf’s November 3 state-of-emergency decree took foreign news outlets like CNN off the air. Musharraf, who is one of the main targets of the al-Qaeda international terrorist organization, recognizes that the so-called “CNN effect” in global affairs can destabilize foreign governments, including his own. It’s no wonder that he recently complained about being betrayed by the Western media.

Now, with Hillary Clinton appearing on Blitzer’s show one day later, to complain about a “blank check” for Musharraf and the “failed policies” of the Bush Administration, the Democratic Party agenda is out in the open – overthrow the government of Pakistan, no matter what comes after it. This is the recipe that brought the Mullahs to power in Iran under Democrat Jimmy Carter’s Administration. It could bring al Qaeda to power in Pakistan, with control over dozens of nuclear weapons, if President Bush doesn’t get control of his State Department and the CIA.

“Happening now – breaking news,” Blitzer breathlessly declared on Thursday. “Benazir Bhutto holds Pakistan’s president responsible for her assassination in an e-mail sent only weeks before her death. We’re going to bring you an exclusive look at that never-before-seen e-mail and an interview with the man who received and who let me in on his chilling secret.”

Blitzer understood the impact of his words. “We want to welcome our viewers in the United States and around the world,” he said, knowing such an explosive report could lead to the further loss of life (19 people had died in Pakistan in riots following the Bhutto death as of Friday afternoon).

It was an incendiary charge. Blitzer called it “my exclusive report on Benazir Bhutto casting blame for her own assassination two months before it happened.” If killed, she reportedly said in the e-mail, “I would hold Musharraf responsible. I have been made to feel insecure by his minions…”

But Musharraf, under U.S. pressure, was forced to let her back in the country. Musharraf had to withdraw Interpol notices for her arrest on corruption charges. She is reportedly worth more than $1 billion and has been linked to the U.N.’s oil-for-food scandal.

He knew – and she knew – that she would also be in danger from the same al-Qaeda forces that have targeted Musharraf himself. (Musharraf is a target because he has rounded up hundreds of suspected al-Qaeda terrorists, including some directly involved in 9/11, and has turned them over to the U.S.)

Choosing to blame Musharraf for her murder (in advance of it happening) is about as rational as appearing openly at crowds with thousands of people and then departing in a car with her head poking through a sunroof. This was clearly reckless conduct on her part. But this gross error has been compounded by Hillary now calling for some kind of international investigation of who murdered Bhutto. On the Blitzer show, she even suggested that Interpol ought to take the lead, when it was Interpol that had issued the notice for Bhutto’s arrest on corruption charges.

When Blitzer brought up some of the facts about Bhutto’s open–air campaigning to Mark Siegel, the source of his controversial e-mail, he replied that “Benazir Bhutto believed in democracy and she believed in speaking to the people. It’s not reckless to go out and touch the people. Don’t blame the victim for the crime…”

But it was Bhutto blaming Musharraf for the crime – in advance of it happening. And CNN was circulating her irrational statement to a worldwide audience.

Blitzer’s exploitation of this e-mail was unconscionable. The real story is not whether Bhutto would irrationally blame Musharraf for her possible death, but where this e-mail came from and why it was being released at this time. It was like pouring gasoline on a fire. To his credit, Senator John McCain noted, like Bush, that Musharraf has been a reliable partner of the U.S. in the war on al-Qaeda terrorism. He has compared himself to Abraham Lincoln holding America together as a sovereign entity and using emergency powers during the Civil War.

Musharraf is sometimes labeled a “military dictator” who doesn’t deserve U.S. support. But we have to remember that he seized power from a Pakistani Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif, who reportedly accepted bribes from Osama bin Laden and presided over the building of Pakistan’s nuclear bomb. Under U.S. pressure, Sharif is now back in Pakistan as one of Musharraf’s other political rivals.

With Hillary’s appearance on Blitzer’s show, one day after Siegel released the controversial Bhutto e-mail, it is clear that a network of Democratic Party officials is pursuing its own dangerous foreign policy agenda.

Siegel, who provided the e-mail to Blitzer and has endorsed Hillary for president, is a prominent member of a Democratic Party foreign policy network and served on the board of the federally-funded National Democratic Institute (NDI), a group that has been promoting “democracy” in Pakistan. Siegel was a lobbyist and registered foreign agent for Bhutto (according to the Washington Post, Siegel was paid $452,941 for one year’s work for Bhutto) when she was Prime Minister and his resumé includes work for President Jimmy Carter and Senator Ted Kennedy. Carter, you may recall, helped undermine and topple the Shah of Iran in the name of promoting human rights and democracy there. That gave us the fanatical Mullahs and their “peaceful” nuclear program.

Blitzer, on his show, referred to Siegel merely as Bhutto’s “long-time friend” and “U.S. spokesman” and someone having a long “relationship” with her. He is much more than that, and Blitzer knows it.

Just recently, former Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle, a member of the NDI board of directors, gave testimony blasting Musharraf for allegedly not doing enough to ensure credible elections are going to be held in Pakistan.

Is the Democratic Party position that Musharraf should be toppled, in the same way that Carter helped undermine the Shah? It is interesting to note that Democratic candidate Bill Richardson, considered a possible running mate for Hillary Clinton, called for Musharraf to step down but didn’t identify who his replacement ought to be. Yet, Richardson is supposed to be a Democrat with foreign policy experience.

Much of the socialist-oriented political platform of Bhutto’s Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) reads like it was taken from the speeches of Democratic Party politicians. This mish-mash calls for “a synthesis of economic liberalism with a strong social democratic agenda” and has numerous references to making foreign policy decisions based on the U.N. Charter and U.N. agreements, such as the global warming treaty.

Not surprisingly, Democratic Party politicians and much of the liberal media have portrayed Musharraf as a villain and Bhutto as a martyr for human rights and democracy.

In order to accelerate this campaign to destabilize Pakistan, Bhutto’s book, Reconciliation: Islam, Democracy and the West, is being rushed into print by HarperCollins, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation. Ironically, Siegel told Blitzer that he helped write the book and that it is about how problems “within Islam and between Islam and the West” can be “reconciled peacefully, and in a way that promotes peace in the future.”

Hillary and her allies in the Democratic Party and the media are doing anything but promoting peace. They are exploiting a tragic death in order to destabilize a U.S. ally.

Captain Eric H. May, the Internet intelligence writer, offers fresh insight on the assassination of Benazir Bhutto in Pakistan. He poses an all-important question for Americans: if presidential candidate Dr. Ron Paul also in the crosshairs?
Courage in the Crosshairs: Ron Paul and the RepublicBy Captain Eric H. May
Military Correspondent

Mideast Murder

“It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.” — Voltaire

Ecclesiastes was right when he wrote that there is nothing new under the sun. The Thursday assassination of Pakistani reformer Benazir Bhutto gives the world a fresh reminder of the old lesson that those who lead the way invite attack. Clearly Bhutto herself was aware of this grim reality, since she had discussed it months earlier in a letter to supporters laying the blame for her possible assassination squarely on the shoulders of Pakistani strongman Pervez Musharraf.

The devilish details of Bhutto’s death have all Pakistan raising hell with a wave of riots that could turn in to a revolution before all is said and done. Her frenzied supporters demand answers to questions that their government does not have the credibility to answer satisfactorily. Where was her security at the fatal moment? Who fired the shots that rang out across the crowd, the pistol waving gunman in grainy photos from the scene or the sniper reported by Bhutto supporters? After being shot and then suicide bombed, why does the official autopsy report released a day later claim that neither bullets nor bombs had anything to do with her death?

Some Middle East experts estimate that two thirds of Pakistanis believe that Musharraf and the corrupt Establishment upholding him were either guilty of committing the Bhutto murder, allowing it it to happen or covering up details after it happened.

Domestic Deadliness

“We also have to work, though, sort of the dark side, if you will.” — Dick Cheney

All the sound and fury from Southwest Asia would signify nothing in America if the vast majority of Americans believed that the United States of “unitary executive” Bush was fundamentally different from the Pakistan of military dictator Musharraf. The vast majority of Americans, though, believe that the Bush League is capable of any level of mischief. In fact, the two thirds of us who detest him also believe that Bush and the corrupt Establishment upholding him were either guilty of committing the 9/11 mass murder, allowing it it to happen or covering up details after it happened.

In these troubled days, it is quite credible to innumerable US citizens that we have been neoconned into standing our republic on its head. The new millennium was dubbed the New American Century by Ivy League Bush Boyz and Israel-first Zionazis, then on 9/11 — the date number coinciding with our national emergency code — a manufactured terror spectacular began a counterrevolution against our Declaration and Constitution. Our new King George established secret prisons, torture chambers and imperial wars, while snatching away civil rights all the way back to Magna Carta.

To a sizable chunk of the American electorate, the radical analysis in the paragraph above seems to be a fair exposition of our current political crisis, and the inability of such views — or indeed of any anti-establishmentarian views — to find expression in the mainstream media is just so much more proof that the System is flawed, the Establishment is inimical and the New American Century has always been a Bush League codeword for a dictatorial New World Order.

Paul’s Peril

“I think we’re at a point right now where they’re still hoping I will go away, but the fact that they’ve started to attack me means that we are annoying them.” — Ron Paul

Since 9/11, the Internet has become the printing press of the Second American Revolution, fearlessly exploring issues that would never receive the imprimatur of the Globalist/Zionist mainstream media, political parties or apathetic academics. Its power is so unsettling to the elites and their pet projects of the Homeland State and Global War that in recent months the House and Senate have declared war upon it as an instrument of homegrown terror.

To the elites the most dreadful of all netizens is Dr. Ron Paul, the 10-term independent Republican from Texas, whose bread and butter as a presidential candidate is the freethinking Internet user. Paul has boldly proclaimed his presidential bid “The Ron Paul Revolution,” and lived up to this billing by proposing the abolition of Homeland Security and the Global War. He envisions and proclaims vastly increased individual liberty and vastly reduced taxation. Organized efforts by the mainstream media to restrict or ridicule his message have only made it and his political base grow larger. He has been dubbed “Dr. No” for his prescription of less government to heal our sickly body politic, and there is a real possibility that untold millions of Americans will say yes to Dr. No in the upcoming state primaries.

To end where I began, there is nothing new under the sun, and those who propose radical treatments for radical maladies should be aware of that fact. To give credit and praise when and where it is due, Dr. No has spoken publicly on the dangers of his reformist — even revolutionary — candidacy, and pledged to continue forward. The Internet has been abuzz for weeks with rumors, reputedly from inside the American power elite, of considerations and contingencies to “remove” the candidate and candidacy that threaten to roll back the 9/11 counterrevolution. Across the World Wide Web those who long for a return to freedom remind themselves that the last candidate to endanger the powers that be as much as Ron Paul was Ross Perot, who temporarily abandoned his bid for the White House in 1992, claiming that an earlier King George Bush — father of the present King George Bush — had threatened him and his family with the CIA. As Ross Perot and Benazir Bhutto would agree, running for office can be a harrowing experience, one from which those without the courage of conviction would simply run away.

Veterans for Ron Paul

Endorsements' Header

Why has Ron Paul received more donations from active-duty soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines than any other Republican presidential candidate?

It’s simple. Throughout his career, Ron has proven his patriotism by supporting a strong national defense and fighting for the rights of veterans.

Most importantly, all veterans – and all other citizens – would have confidence that with Paul as commander-in-chief, soldiers would never be put into harm’s way unless America’s national security were at stake. Paul has always stood for military readiness, secure borders, and the fair treatment of our troops – never “nation-building,” crusades for democracy, and “peace keeping” at the behest of the U.N.

Ronald Reagan, who knew a patriot when he saw one, was an excellent judge of Paul’s character: “Ron Paul is one of the outstanding leaders fighting for a stronger national defense. As a former Air Force officer, he knows well the needs of our armed forces, and he always puts them first.”

Read below the testimonials of veterans and military personnel from all branches of the armed services. You’ll see why Ron Paul is the choice of more veterans than any other candidate for president!

Report: More Special Forces to Pakistan

Report: More Special Forces to Pakistan

Published: Dec. 27, 2007 at 4:37 PM

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, Dec. 27 (UPI) — U.S. Special Forces are expected to expand their presence in Pakistan to train anti-terror units there starting next year, a Washington Post column said.

Post columnist William M. Arkin, quoting defense officials involved in the planning, wrote the expansion will be part of an effort to train and support indigenous counterinsurgency forces and clandestine counter-terrorism units.

“These Pakistan-centric operations will mark a shift for the U.S. military and for U.S.-Pakistan relations,” the report said.

Arkin wrote the United States had used Pakistani bases for its operations in Afghanistan but left them once the Taliban regime was deposed. But of late, the U.S. military has been frustrated by the inability of Pakistani military to control its borders or the tribal areas, leading to instability in those areas, the column said.

The United States now has an agreement for the Special Forces and the first personnel could be on the ground in Pakistan early next year, the report said.

The development comes as Pakistan has been augmenting its own forces to fight rising violence in the tribal areas.

Where Bhutto’s Death Leaves the U.S.
By MARK THOMPSON AND BRIAN BENNETT/WASHINGTONThu Dec 27, 10:30 PM ET

The weeks to come will determine just how severe a blow Benazir Bhutto’s death is to Pakistan, but debate over Washington’s role in the run up to this tragic day will continue well beyond that. Even as the smoke still lingered in Rawalpindi, President Bush demanded that those responsible for Bhutto’s death be caught and punished. “The United States strongly condemns this cowardly act by murderous extremists who are trying to undermine Pakistan’s democracy,” Bush told reporters in Crawford, Texas, where he had arrived Wednesday to begin a long New Year’s holiday. “Those who committed this crime must be brought to justice.”

But there are some who think the Bush Administration is not without blame. Hussain Haqqani, a former top aide to Bhutto and now a professor at Boston University, thinks the U.S., which has counted Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf as a key ally against terrorism since 9/11, bears some of the responsibility. “Washington will have to answer a lot of questions, especially the Administration,” he says. “People like me have been making specific requests to American officials to intervene and ask for particular security arrangements be made for her, and they have been constantly just trusting the Musharraf Administration.” U.S. officials said they were leery of intervening in another nation’s internal affairs, and didn’t want to give Bhutto Washington’s imprimatur.

Haqqani is not shy about pointing fingers. He blames Musharraf himself, above all, for Bhutto’s death. “It’s quite clear that Musharraf does not want an election – you can quote me – he is the one who has constantly wanted anybody who can threaten him or his power, out.” Haqqani told Congress in October that U.S. aid for Pakistan has for too long been tilted toward the Pakistani military. “Since 1954 almost $21 billion had been given to Pakistan in aid,” he told the House Armed Services Committee. “Of this, $17.7 billion were given under military rule, and only $3.4 billion was given to Pakistan and the civilian government.”

It is Musharraf’s iron grip on power that has made Washington’s own policy toward Pakistan such a target of criticism. While Washington has publicly extolled the virtues of democracy and hoped that Bhutto’s return to Pakistan in October would usher in a power-sharing deal with Musharraf, it was also clearly nervous about the instability if the country’s strong man were to lose power entirely. Pakistan – the world’s second-most-populous Muslim nation, with elements of al-Qaeda and the Taliban controlling lawless mountainous pockets in the northwest – is also the only Islamic state with a nuclear arsenal. And though Washington publicly says Pakistan’s nuclear weapons are safe, there are always private concerns about their security, concerns that will only heighten in the wake of Bhutto’s assassination.

The U.S. has few options in Pakistan. One thing is clear, says Peter Galbraith, senior fellow at the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation: It is “not a good idea to have 70 nuclear weapons in the hands of a country that is falling apart.” Some observers believe that U.S. policy in Pakistan has favored personalities over principles. “We have a bad habit of always personalizing our foreign policy,” says P.J. Crowley, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress. “We’ve done it with Musharraf, and we did it with respect to Bhutto. We are very good at providing technical support to the Pakistani army. We are not good at building indigenous or effective local political processes or strong institutions of government.” Given the realities on the ground, the U.S. is likely to continue to throw its support behind Musharraf. “In terms of political leadership, Pakistan does not have a deep bench,” says Crowley.

Some will say Bhutto had a death wish; one U.S. official even termed her presence at large-scale campaign rallies “foolhardy”, given the Karachi suicide bombing that killed more than 140 people on October 18, the day she returned from exile. She returned to Pakistan and faced a range of powerful anti-democratic enemies, including both religious extremists like al-Qaeda and corrupt branches of the Pakistani military and intelligence services. “When you have the criminal and corrupt in the same camp it makes for dangerous bedfellows,” says Arsalan Iftikhar, contributing editor to Islamica magazine. “In a sense Benazir knew she was on a martyrdom mission. She was willing to give up her life for democracy.”

Senator Joseph Biden, the Delaware Democratic and presidential candidate, echoed Haqqani’s view that Musharraf, at a minimum, didn’t provide Bhutto with adequate security. In fact, he twice urged the Pakistani President to bolster Bhutto’s protection. “The failure to protect Ms. Bhutto raises a lot of hard questions for the government and security services that must be answered,” said Biden, who is also chairman of the foreign relations committee. “The U.S. should offer any assistance necessary, including investigative teams, to get to the bottom of this horror.”

Still, the former top U.S. military commander in that part of the world said it’s wrong to blame Musharraf, or the U.S. “I think it is al-Qaeda – they’re the only ones who gain from this,” says Anthony Zinni, a retired four-star Marine general who served as chief of the U.S. Central Command – responsible for Pakistan – from 1997 to 2000. Zinni rattled off reasons for al-Qaeda’s wanting Bhutto dead, including her commitment to democracy, her secular views, the blowback it will create for Musharraf, and her gender. Beyond that, Zinni says al-Qaeda – making marginal progress in Afghanistan, backsliding in Iraq, and rebuffed in Somalia – is looking for a new battlefield. “I really think they’re trying to ignite Pakistan into the kind of chaos they need to survive,” Zinni says, “and create a fundamentalist, even radical, Islamic government.” “This is one of the worst things that could happen to Musharraf,” he continues. “In part, because he’ll be accused of doing it.”

Zinni also disputes the idea that Washington could have done anything to prevent the assassination. “You want Blackwater out there providing security for her?” he asked, referring to the controversial U.S. private-security firm implicated in the deaths of many Iraqi civilians. “The losing of Pakistan – to whatever degree we’ve lost it, and I wouldn’t write it off yet – goes back to after the first Afghan war,” Zinni says, when Washington neglected the Afghan-Pakistan border roiling with insurgents. “We put them in a bad situation that we helped create,” Zinni says. “I’m no fan of this Administration, but you can’t criticize this Administration for what they inherited.”

BHUTTO ASSASSINATION sets off alarms in Israel over Pakistan’s nukesBY RON KAMPEAS

For Israelis, the assassin that killed Benazir Bhutto removed another barrier shielding the Jewish state from the Islamic bomb.

Israel’s media and leadership portrayed the sniper-suicide bombing attack Thursday that ended the onetime Pakistani prime minister’s life as a blow to hopes for a bridge to the Islamic world. They also suggested it raised the risk of Pakistan’s nuclear bomb falling into militant Islamist hands.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert called Bhutto’s death a “great tragedy,” according to the Jerusalem Post. “I saw her as someone who could have served as a bridgehead to relations with that part of the Muslim world with whom our ties are naturally limited,” the newspaper quoted Olmert as saying.

Tzipi Livni, the Israeli foreign minister, issued condolences to the Pakistani people.

Bhutto “demonstrated brave leadership for her people,” Livni said in a statement. “Israel expresses the hope that Pakistan will continue along the path of reconciliation, moderation and democracy.”

The chaos precipitated by the killing poses dangers beyond Pakistan’s immediate neighborhood, said Jack Rosen, a past president of the American Jewish Congress, noting that Pakistan is one of a handful of declared nuclear powers and the only Muslim country with the bomb. Rosen, who was the first Jewish leader to host a Pakistani leader when the AJCongress held a dinner for President Pervez Musharraf two years ago, said he was trying to reach the leadership in Pakistan for an assessment.

“If the government fell into extremist hands, the bomb also falls into the hands of extremists,” Rosen told JTA “You don’t need to worry about a nuclear Iran; you have a nuclear Pakistan in the hands of extremists.”

Israel radio led its hourly news Friday evening quoting the Pentagon as saying that Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal was “under control.”

Black listed cancer treatment could save your life

Black listed cancer treatment could save your life

http://tinyurl.com/3xrm45

Baltimore, MD — As unbelievable as it seems the key to stopping many cancers has been around for over 30 years. Yet it has been banned. Blocked. And kept out of your medicine cabinet by the very agency designed to protect your health–the FDA.

In 1966, the senior oncologist at a prominent New York hospital rocked the medical world when he developed a serum that “shrank cancer tumors in 45 minutes!” 90 minutes later they were gone … Headlines hit every major paper around the world. Scientists and researchers applauded. Time and again this life saving treatment worked miracles, but the FDA ignored the research and hope he brought and shut him down.

You read that right. He was not only shut down–but also forced out of the country where others benefited from his discovery. That was 38 years ago. How many other treatments have they been allowed to hide? Just as in the case of Dr. Burton’s miracle serum these too go unmentioned.

Two-Nutrient Cancer Breakthrough …

Decades ago, European research scientist Dr. Johanna Budwig, a six-time Nobel Award nominee, discovered a totally natural formula that not only protects against the development of cancer, but people all over the world who have been diagnosed with incurable cancer and sent home to die have actually benefited from her research–and now lead normal lives.

After 30 years of study, Dr. Budwig discovered that the blood of seriously ill cancer patients was deficient in certain substances and nutrients. Yet, healthy blood always contained these ingredients. It was the lack of these nutrients that allowed cancer cells to grow wild and out of control.

By simply eating a combination of two natural and delicious foods (found on page 134) not only can cancer be prevented–but in case after case it was actually healed! “Symptoms of cancer, liver dysfunction, and diabetes were completely alleviated.” Remarkably, what Dr. Budwig discovered was a totally natural way for eradicating cancer.

However, when she went to publish these results so that everyone could benefit–she was blocked by manufacturers with heavy financial stakes! For over 10 years now her methods have proved effective–yet she is denied publication–blocked by the giants who don’t want you to read her words.

What’s more, the world is full of expert minds like Dr. Budwig who have pursued cancer remedies and come up with remarkable natural formulas and diets that work for hundreds and thousands of patients. How to Fight Cancer & Win author William Fischer has studied these methods and revealed their secrets for you–so that you or someone you love may be spared the horrors of conventional cancer treatments.

As early as 1947, Virginia Livingston, M.D., isolated a cancer-causing microbe. She noted that every cancer sample analyzed (whether human or other animal) contained it.

This microbe–a bacteria that is actually in each of us from birth to death–multiplies and promotes cancer when the immune system is weakened by disease, stress, or poor nutrition. Worst of all, the microbes secrete a special hormone protector that short-circuits our body’s immune system–allowing the microbes to grow undetected for years. No wonder so many patients are riddled with cancer by the time it is detected. But there is hope even for them …

Turn to page 82 of How to Fight Cancer & Win for the delicious diet that can help stop the formation of cancer cells and shrink tumors.

They walked away from traditional cancer treatments … and were healed! Throughout the pages of How to Fight Cancer & Win you’ll meet real people who were diagnosed with cancer–suffered through harsh conventional treatments–turned their backs on so called modern medicine–only to be miraculously healed by natural means! Here is just a sampling of what others have to say about the book.

“We purchased How to Fight Cancer & Win, and immediately my husband started following the recommended diet for his just diagnosed colon cancer. He refused the surgery that our doctors advised. Since following the regime recommended in the book he has had no problems at all, cancer-wise. If not cured, we believe the cancer has to be in remission.”

–Thelma B.

“I bought How to Fight Cancer & Win and this has to be the greatest book I’ve ever read. I have had astounding results from the easy to understand knowledge found in this book. My whole life has improved drastically and I have done so much for many others. The information goes far beyond the health thinking of today.”

–Hugh M.

“I can’t find adequate words to describe my appreciation of your work in providing How to Fight Cancer & Win. You had to do an enormous amount of research to bring this vast and most important knowledge to your readers.

My doctor found two tumors on my prostate with a high P.S.A. He scheduled a time to surgically remove the prostate, but I canceled the appointment. Instead I went on the diet discussed in the book combined with another supplement. Over the months my P.S.A. has lowered until the last reading was one point two.”

–Duncan M.

“In my 55 years as a Country Family Physician, I have never read a more ‘down to earth,’ practical resume of cancer prevention and treatments, than in this book. It needs to be studied worldwide for the prevention of cancer by all researchers who are looking for a cure.”

–Edward S.,M.D.

“As a cancer patient who has been battling lymphatic cancer on and off for almost three years now, I was very pleased to stumble across How to Fight Cancer & Win. The book was inspiring, well-written and packed with useful information for any cancer patient looking to maximize his or her chances for recovery.”

–Romany S.

“I’ve been incorporating Dr. Budwig’s natural remedy into my diet and have told others about it. Your book is very informative and has information I’ve never heard about before (and I’ve read many books on the cancer and nutrition link). Thanks for the wonderful information.”

–Molly G.

Don’t waste another minute. There are only a limited number of books in stock–and unless order volume is extraordinarily high we may not be able to print more life-saving copies. Claim your book today and you will be one of the lucky few who no longer have to wait for cures that get pushed “underground” by big business and money hungry giants.

ELECTRONIC MEDICINE CURE FOR CANCER? By: Alan Stang

ELECTRONIC MEDICINE
CURE FOR CANCER?

By: Alan Stang
http://www.etherzone.com/2006/stang051206.shtml

One of the things the conspiracy for world government takes great care to permeate is the profession of medicine, for the obvious reason that everybody, at least once in a while, goes to a doctor. You can control the patient, more or less, if you control the profession and the doctor. And so we suffer from what I call Monopoly Medicine.  

Monopoly Medicine includes the American Medical Association, which federal Judge Susan Getzendanner ruled was running a “conspiracy” (her word) to destroy chiropractic, and which in fact was founded to destroy homeopathy. Monopoly Medicine also includes Big Pharma, the monster drug companies that presently are trying to make vitamin supplements illegal; along with its terror enforcement gang, the F.D.A., and its utterly subservient medical schools. 

The Food and Drug Administration gangsters specialize in raiding health food stores and doctors’ offices, throwing doctors into jail, destroying their practices and lives and confiscating equipment. In Kent, Washington, they conned the local police, saying they needed help to raid some drug pushers.  

Instead, the disgusted cops found themselves participating in an invasion of the office of Jonathan Wright, M.D., the renowned healer, where F.D.A. Nazis subdued patients, nurses and secretaries. They said they had found a contaminated vial of medicine in the garbage, which was true. Dr. Wright’s Tahoma clinic had thrown it there precisely because it was contaminated. 

American doctors routinely work under a reign of terror. They must be familiar with tens of thousands of pages of federal regulations. To convict a man of any crime, however serious, the prosecutor must prove intent. If there is no intent, there is no crime. But if a doctor’s secretary enters the wrong code in the wrong box, it is prima facie “Medicare fraud,” even if the doctor did not intend it; even if he knew nothing about it. 

Much of the time today, you are being treated by a salesman, not a doctor. The salesman is the “detail man” from the huge drug company, who tells the doctor about the latest drugs. The doctor generally knows little more than what the detail man tells him about a particular medicine. He doesn’t have time to learn more. The doctor used to take a long history; the better the history, the better the treatment. Today, in a medical version of bam bam, thank you ma’am, you are in and out in a few minutes, clutching a prescription. 

For years, totalitarians have told us to imitate Canada. But as bad as it is becoming down here, it is even worse up there. By the time Canada‘s government medicine does your procedure, you could well be dead and not need it. All you need to know about Canada‘s medicine is that Canadian doctors and patients routinely escape and come here. 

But now comes my new book, Electronic Medicine: Cure for Cancer? Electronic medicine is the Twenty First Century’s version of homeopathy, developed and systematized by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843). The so-called “orthodox” medicine we have been trained to use in this country believes that the symptoms are the disease. Homeopathy believes exactly the opposite: that the symptoms are the system’s attempt to fight off the disease. 

 

The principle on which homeopathy is based is “like cures like,” which originated with Hippocrates some 2500 years ago. Hippocrates searched for medicines that were most like the disease. So, “alternative” medicine is not at all a new fad. “Alternative medicine” is genuinely traditional medicine. What Hahnemann called allopathy and we call “orthodox” medicine is a relatively new, perversion of medicine. Today’s drug culture medicine, in which people are trained from pre-K to be pharmaceutical drug addicts, has been around for little more than a hundred years. 

Man is a biochemical, bioelectric being. What Hahnemann was doing without knowing it in his laborious search for cures, was finding a medicine with the same frequency as the disease he was treating. We are all familiar with the opera singer whose note shatters the glass. Why? Because her note and the glass emit the same frequency and establish a mutual resonance. In the same way, because “like cures like,” a medicine that has the same frequency as a pathogen will kill it when they collide. 

Electronic medicine is the art of developing machines that create the frequencies needed to restore health. Some 75 years ago, a scientific genius named Royal Rife developed such a machine. Monopoly Medicine used gangster government to drive him out of this country. Rife had to hide out in Mexico, where so many other healers have fled. 

Over the years, people using the Rife technology have been raided, imprisoned, driven to suicide and insanity. Government goon squads seized and smashed Rife equipment and pressured recovered patients to recant about the relief they had enjoyed. The foreman in one jury that convicted a Rife practitioner was an AMA doctor. The other jurors were kept in ignorance. An Ohio doctor named Stafford was hounded so badly he gave up medicine and became a salesman. Of course all this is standard Communist federal goon procedure whenever someone develops something Monopoly Medicine does not control. 

All technology is primitive when it is first introduced. The original computers were even bigger than Rosie O’Donnell, which you can’t lift, but could not do as much as your calculator, which you can. Today’s electronic medicine is seventy five light years more sophisticated than Royal Rife’s monumental technology.  

The company in the forefront of frequency technology today is Eagle Research, in Simpsonville, South Carolina , for whom I wrote the new book. Eagle produces a complete line of frequency products, including the Guardian, which magnifies the body’s frequencies to a previously inconceivable one trillion x and reinserts them into the system. Eagle also produces the Frequency Generator, with which one can literally use a telephone-type keypad to format the known frequencies of various disorders. Doctors are having remarkable success with the generator on previously incurable cases of ALS.  

It is worth noting that Monopoly Medicine has made the terms “treat,” “heal” and “cure” “illegal” for people who are not Monopolists. Because we are docile to a fault, we don’t use those terms. For instance, we conduct “sessions,” not treatments. The terms are inaccurate and useless anyway, and should be swept into the dust bin of history, because they are hopelessly obsolete and do not describe what electronic medicine does. It restores the body’s balance, strengthening it so that it can heal itself.  

Electronic Medicine: Cure for Cancer? is a brief history of medicine starting with Hippocrates. It explains the science of homeopathy and its relation to frequencies. And it is replete with examples of what electronic medicine has done. Diabetes patients about to enter surgery for amputations have restored themselves to normalcy and kept their feet. People with so much pain for so long that they could not get out of bed are now back at work. Domestic animals – for which there can be no placebo effect – have returned from the brink of death. 

A lady with advanced, visible breast cancer used the Guardian. Three months later, the cancer was gone. So were a couple of prostate cancers I discuss in the book. In fact, the heroine of my book had cancer at least a couple of times, and suffered thirty seven surgeries (yes, thirty seven), chemotherapy and radiation; she finally found relief with the Guardian. The doctor pronounced her clear, but he irritably prescribed another six months of chemo and radiation, which she declined.   

A month ago, at a medical convention in Toronto, an otherwise robust man of about sixty appeared at the Eagle booth with a pronounced spasm he had suffered for eleven years since an automobile accident. Every fifteen or twenty seconds for eleven years, he would suddenly contort as if subjected to a strong electric shock. He said he had been to doctors across Canada without success. He did the Guardian procedure once and a month later still has not suffered another spasm. Of course, this does not – does not – does not prove you would enjoy the same success, but he certainly did.  

Because I am so inspired by the possibilities of electronic medicine, I not only wrote the book, but also I have agreed to become Eagle Research’s regional representative in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana. If you want to know more, please get in touch with me. Electronic medicine could be a mighty weapon in the battle to destroy Monopoly Medicine, which is one of the conspiracy for world government’s most effective tools. 

Recently, I did a book signing at the Eagle Research booth in Dallas at a convention of the American College for Advancement in Medicine, a vibrant group of doctors who believe in freedom of choice in medicine; who believe that medical choices should be made by doctors and patients, not by bureaucrats sitting in offices a couple of thousand miles away, who have never even seen the patients. Many of the doctors were enthralled with the frequency equipment and the book.

Honey And Healing
By Dr. Gayle Eversole, PhD

http://www.rense.com/general79/hone.htm

This is (almost) 2008. The Medical Mafia and Big Pharma have now – at least in my experience – since the 1960s overloaded the population with drugs, drugs and more drugs, causing more and more problems with people’s health.

Wound care has been a problem all this time, and probably longer, as has over use of anti-biotics.

Now honey seems to be the panacea for everything and of course no one knew of this until the dangerous duo mentioned above comes out with praise for the use of this natural substance.

Since I have personally used honey for many health concerns including wound care I am not surprised. I have seen and know of its benefits.

The NZ and AU Manuka honey is very dark. In natural healing it was always recommended that dark honey – buckwheat – be used for health. The dark honey contains much more vitamin C but in general honey caontains all of these health promoting benefits

A Reminder: Please Tune In Later Today

A Reminder:  Please Tune In Later Today

Today, Friday, December 28, 5:30 pm PT (8:30 pm ET), I will be appearing live on the broadcast (and Internet-based, as well) radio show, “The Political Cesspool,” with my old friend, James Edwards, for a full half hour of no-holds-barred political discussion.

Here is James’ effusive promo for the show:  “As we round out our programming week on Friday (Dec. 28) we’ll be joined by our friend and listener favorite, the dynamic Edgar J. Steele, Esq. Ed will be returning to The Political Cesspool for a high-octane discussion about a variety of issues, from the Ron Paul campaign to the Liberty Dollar raid and plenty of more sensitive topics of National importance. As folks know from his previous interviews with us, Mr. Steele pulls no punches and expresses his opinions with conviction and logic. He’s also one of the most fiery and articulate guests you’ll EVER hear on radio! So, don’t you dare miss this installment of our award-winning show!

“The Political Cesspool can be heard live each Monday – Friday from 7pm – 9pm Central Standard Time on AM 1380 WLRM in Memphis, Tennessee, or via the worldwide internet stream located at www.thepoliticalcesspool.org . You may also listen to us in syndication each weekday morning on the Dixie Broadcasting Radio Network.”

My plan:  discuss topics that even Tim Russert found too hot to handle during his recent failed attempt to skewer Dr. Paul on last week’s televised “Meet the Press,” such as vote fraud, abortion and the false allegations of Dr. Paul having affiliations with white supremacists.

Time and again, Russert proves that, even after all these years, he is no equal to his predecessor, the venerable David Brinkley, who never, ever engaged in the ambush-by-innuendo style that Russert so favors.  Dr. Paul gave far better than he got, making Russert look every bit the overreaching and one-dimensional media lackey that he is.  With each and every outing, Dr. Paul appears to be gaining strength and conviction. 

Repeat after me:  Ron Paul will be America’s next President!

Do it again:  Ron Paul will be America’s next President!

Believe it:  Ron Paul will be America’s next President!

There now.  Don’t you feel better?

Why Bill Really Wants Hillary to Lose

Why Bill Really Wants Hillary to Lose
Culture War Joan Swirsky, Featured Writer
December 28, 2007
Print page sponsored by
BasicsProject.org

“Is it possible that Bill Clinton secretly or unconsciously is sabotaging Hillary’s campaign?” asks new media pundit Thomas Lifson, adding that after all, nobody “has access to the private thoughts of the man…”

 

This is true, but private thoughts are not the criteria by which people are, or should be, judged. The only empirical evidence we have of the interior life of any person lies solely in his or her behavior. And when it comes to behavior, Bill Clinton has told us for decades, and is telling us now, everything we need to know about him and his motives.

 

Without repeating many of the issues I’ve already written about the former president – his misguided policies, which compromised our national security; his cringe-producing, lip-biting public appearances; and the treasonous speeches he’s given against the current administration, on foreign soil and often to our enemies – my intention here is to affirm Lifson’s suspicions.

 

During his eight years as president, Bubba told us repeatedly that:

 

▪ Lying to the American public was perfectly okay

 

▪ Serial adultery was none of our business

 

▪ Deeply embarrassing his wife, child, mother, and country was “a private matter”

 

▪ Placing his entire cabinet in the untenable role of supporting his lies was his imperial privilege

 

▪ Impeachment for perjury and being disbarred were mistakes of our country’s century’s-old legal system

 

▪ The few journalists who wrote about his innumerable flaws and failed policies were “unfair”

 

▪ Violating the sanctity of the White House’s Oval Office with Monica Lewinsky was okay

 

▪ Misusing the Lincoln bedroom for campaign cash was okay

 

▪ Selling our most precious national-security secrets to our enemies for cold hard campaign cash was also perfectly okay

 

All of these behaviors benefited one person and one person only – Bill Clinton. Who acts like this? Who thinks like this? What kind of person believes that anything he does or says or wants or needs trumps common decency and, in Clinton’s case, national security?

 

Narcissists do! And malignant narcissists like Bill Clinton lead the pack.

 

What Is Narcissism?

According to the DSM-IV, the bible of the American Psychiatric Association, narcissism is described as both a personality and character disorder, with the following symptoms:

 

▪ A pervasive pattern of grandiosity

 

▪ Self-centered, egotistical behavior

 

▪ An exaggerated sense of self-importance

 

▪ A lack of empathy

 

▪ Exploitative interpersonal relationships

 

▪ Taking advantage of others to achieve one’s own ends

 

▪ The need to be seen as special and unique and the expectation of special treatment

 

▪ The need for excessive admiration, adulation, attention, affirmation, deference, and praise

 

▪ The impulse to strike out in rage

 

▪ A sense of entitlement

 

▪ Lying without conscience

 

▪ Always blaming others

 

▪ Ignoring or denigrating the accomplishments of others

 

▪ Envy of others

 

Over the course of Clinton’s lengthy political career, hundreds if not thousands of authors, journalists, commentators worldwide, and also victims, have documented or testified under oath to all of the above, leaving no doubt about the ex-president’s voracious appetite for attention, insatiable lust for the spotlight, spectacular exploitation of everyone from his family to his underlings to his girlfriends, as well as his liberal replacement of facts and truth for whopper lies, to cite just a few examples,

 

But Clinton is no ordinary narcissist. I believe he is of the malignant variety, which explains why he is working to make his wife president while, at the same time, insuring that she never ascends to that position.

 

What Is Malignant Narcissism?

This term was coined by psychoanalyst Otto Kernberg about 35 years ago and adds to the above list paranoia, a pervasive disregard for others, as well as deceit and manipulation. It is a condition that psychoanalyst George H. Pollock has described as “pathologically grandiose, lacking in conscience and behavioral regulation, [and displaying] demonstrations of joyful cruelty and sadism.”

 

While most people suppose that such pathology is easy to recognize and therefore avoid, quite the contrary is true of pathological narcissists, many of whom occupy positions of great prominence – in politics, medicine, the law, academia, the arts, Hollywood, industry, law enforcement, even the clergy.

 

In fact, narcissists of both the ordinary and malignant variety are very close to – and sometimes identical to – psychopaths. They specialize in mimicking human emotions and portraying themselves as the very opposite of what they really are. And they often “appear” to be “normal,” even when they’re telling bald-faced lies, acting emotionally infantile, and inflicting unspeakable pain on those who they claim to care for.

 

Ironically, they are hopelessly dependent upon the very people they have such contempt for, and so they gratify their unquenchable emotional needs by affecting a faux personality that is so charming on the outside that it eclipses the toxicity within.

 

With their natural-born charisma, this species inevitably attracts fawning acolytes who – lacking the narcissists’ glow or power – are willing to subordinate themselves and remain, in essence, both the narcissist’s hapless cheerleaders and their scarred victims. As long as they remain in the narcissist’s thrall, everything is fine.

 

But since narcissists, in their own minds, must always remain superior to everyone – vis-à-vis their delusions of grandeur – they strive continually to make everyone around them feel insignificant, which is fueled by their pathological envy.

 

When A Malignant Narcissist Meets His Prey

In the early 1970s, then-homely-and-probably-dateless Hillary met charismatic-but-innately-narcissistic Bill at Yale Law School. He wasn’t looking for beautiful (he had plenty of those, with dozens to follow) but rather a brainy leftist who could help him fulfill his mission in life, i.e., to be important. He spun his web and she was willingly, thrillingly ensnared.

 

And so the Wellesley-educated woman whose feminist psyche was forged by Gloria Steinem’s battle cry – “A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle” – abandoned her own grand plans for fame and fortune, married Bill, and moved to Arkansas, where she proceeded to prove that malignant narcissists will always have their Kool-Aid-drinking followers.

 

Hillary didn’t do much in either Arkansas, where she failed at reforming the state’s abysmal education system, or as First Lady in the White House, where she failed at reforming our nation’s healthcare system. But in both places, she did succeed in covering up and/or denying her husband’s serial infidelities.

 

All this would lead most people to believe that Hillary is a complete patsy and idiot, who sold out all of her feminist ideals to serve a fish on a bicycle! Then again, you can’t sneeze at the privileged perks she enjoyed as a governor’s wife or the immense luxuries she enjoyed as First Lady.

 

But clearly, underneath her decades-long subservience to Bill’s needs, wants, expectations, desires, and demands, Hillary still maintained the notion that she could have her own day in the limelight. With Bill’s time in office finally over, her days of serving him were too. Indeed, she ran for a senate seat in New York, and won a second term in 2006.

 

Right after this victory, she decided to run for the presidency. Little did she know that the one person she counted on to support her – just as she had supported him – would be her worst enemy!

 

And yet, Hillary is as much to blame for her crashing campaign as anyone. That is because she willingly entered a folie à deux – a madness shared by two – which is a rare psychiatric syndrome in which the beliefs of one person (read, Bill) is transmitted to another (read, Hillary).

 

The Sabotage Factor

From Iowa to New Hampshire and from print to electronic media, Bill has made himself  – surprise, surprise! – the centerpiece of Hillary’s campaign. As writer Jonah Goldberg has noted: “Bill Clinton has been stumping for his wife [by] framing the election as a referendum on his tenure as president” (my italics added).

 

Over the past many months, Bill has done the following to sabotage Hillary’s aspirations. This is the short list:

 

▪ Hogged the spotlight, talking about his “accomplishments” in office

 

▪ Lied about his stance on the Iraq War

 

▪ Lied about Hillary sending him out with George H.W. Bush to undo the “damage” of the current administration

 

▪ Lied, as she did, about how “deeply involved in the Irish peace process” she was. “How odd,” Clinton expert Dick Morris recently wrote, “that Hillary forgot to mention her pivotal role in Ireland just four years ago, when she wrote her $8 million memoir, Living History. There, she told a very different story.”

 

▪ Whined about less-than-adulatory media coverage

 

▪ Spouted his negative opinions about his wife’s competition

 

▪ Blurted out his utterances in Tourette’s-like fashion, all of which continue to take up entire news cycles about why he said this-or-that or what he meant

 

▪ Invented the myth that Hillary is “the agent of change”

 

The net result is that Bill, true to his insatiable narcissistic desires, remains the center of attention, and that Hillary’s is relegated to the one thing she really has “experience” in, i.e., cleaning up his messes.

 

Of course, Bill knows the effect of his behavior. Narcissists are nothing if not astute students of…themselves! He knows that embarrassing his wife, forcing her into defensive positions, and burnishing her now-lusterless image as a broom-toting hausfrau will injure her campaign, perhaps irreparably.

 

That is the irony! He wants to be president again but can’t, and he’s damned if she’ll be!

 

As Hillary’s poll numbers in Iowa and New Hampshire devolve, Bill – convinced the election is all about him – has become increasingly unhinged and increasingly viewed as an albatross around wifey’s neck. In fact this arch-symbol of encumbrance and burden was used not once but twice last week in the titles of articles written by Victor Davis Hanson and David Limbaugh.

 

In referring to Bill’s attempt to stem Hillary’s plummeting poll numbers, Hanson, in “The Clinton Albatross,” writes:

 

But Bill’s not exactly a fireman. He may instead throw gasoline on the fire. First, his vote-getting abilities are suspect. He never won 50 percent of the vote in a presidential election. Second, [he] often comes across as a narcissist. He talks the longest and loudest about himself. It is almost impossible for first-person Bill to praise Hillary without adding, “When I was president” or “I had a vision.” Third, Bill cannot always distinguish truth from fiction. [And his] tendency to dwell on – and fudge – his own past earns splashy headlines but takes attention away from his wife.

 

If Bill keeps this sloppiness up, some might almost wonder whether he really wants his wife to win – and thereby have her overshadow his own presidency by being both the first woman president and the Clinton who did not suffer impeachment due to self-inflicted scandal.

 

In Limbaugh’s article, “Hillary’s Spousal Albatross,” the popular columnist writes:

 

It would be bad enough if only cynical sexists accused [Hillary] of glomming on to Bill for power. But there will be no Hillary presidency apart from Bill. He can’t stay out of her business. He can’t stand it if someone else has center stage, especially his wife, who he will have put in office. Even if he wouldn’t vie for direct power – which is unlikely, considering he’s already lobbying for it – …it’s inconceivable he wouldn’t always be trying to grab the headlines.

 

And without using the albatross metaphor, Wesley Pruden, editor-in-chief of The Washington Times, referring to the now-sorry state of Hillary’s campaign, said:

 

Hillary and Bubba can only wonder how things came to such a sorry pass for a president who was inevitable. No one had ever imagined Bubba as the gallant Lancelot, riding to the aid of a lady in distress since his instinct is to put the ladies in distress…

 

If suddenly Hillary is not having any fun, Bubba, liberated at last from irrelevancy on the velvet sidelines, is once more in the center ring, even if in a supporting role. When he appears with Hillary, the loud applause is for him, not her.

 

Unintended Consequences

According to an editorial in Investor’s Business Daily, the “unintended consequences” of Bill Clinton’s entrance – I say intrusion – into Hillary’s campaign have been:

 

▪ She looks weak depending on her husband… by hiding behind [him] she kindles doubts about whether she has the starch to be a strong president on her own.

 

▪ Hillary reminds us of the worst of the Clinton years. Their dysfunctional marriage, his parsing of the language to dodge and weave through controversy, his tendency to get down and dirty in fighting opponents are all unattractive and do him – and her – no good.

 

Indeed, Hillary has played the victim card to death. Yes, her putative constituents – as she sees them – are all “victims” of the capitalist system she detests, and a few gullible of them may even vote for her.

 

But I trust that most voters will recognize that Hillary is an essentially weak woman, incapable of resisting the charms of the malignant narcissists on the world stage, who will make mincemeat of her, just as her husband has always done and continues to do.

Resolve For Victory – Waning, Waxing
By James P. Pinkerton

In American history, Christmastime has been wartime many times. And yet, in past conflicts our country seemed more motivated to win than it does today.

On Christmas Day 1776, Gen. George Washington crossed the Delaware River into New Jersey to attack the Hessian mercenaries at Trenton. The password for the day was “Victory or Death.” ‘Nuff said.

During the Civil War, on Dec. 20, 1864, Union General William T. Sherman completed his legendary – Southerners say infamous – March to the Sea. A triumphant Sherman sent a message to President Abraham Lincoln: “I beg to present you as a Christmas Gift the City of Savannah.”

And during World War II, on Dec. 25, 1943, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued a Christmas radio message to the “fighting men” of the U.S. Merchant Marine, those brave souls tasked with carrying cargo across oceans swarming with deadly U-boats. FDR’s rhetoric was stirring; a pledge that “the steel walls of Hitler’s and Hirohito’s brutal empires will draw tight about their throats.”

The common thread in those conflict-ridden Christmases, of course, was that the United States won the war.

Now fast-forward to the American leaders of today – and how they express themselves about the current war effort in Iraq and Afghanistan. For openers, we might consider Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s “Holiday message to the troops,” easily findable on her Web site, or on YouTube. She mentions “heroism” and “sacrifice,” but her emphasis is on “wishing you a safe return home.”

With apologies to Sherlock Holmes, what word don’t you hear in her spiel? Answer: “Victory.”

Even more interestingly, President George W. Bush’s message to our armed forces, issued last Friday, was similarly devoid of the word “victory.” The best Bush could say was that he was “proud” to be the commander-in-chief of “the greatest force for freedom in the history of the world.” That’s nice, although not exactly Pattonesque.

To be sure, Bush has used the “V” word many times in the past. But “the surge” and his fighting presidency seem to be winding down at about the same time.

Indeed, now it’s the Iranians who are claiming victory over the United States, crowing about their plans to build 19 more nuclear power plants. And why do you think they want them?
For the past seven Christmases, our armed forces have been in hot zones. Now, many Americans, and their leaders – in both parties – seem to be growing weary of the effort.

But our adversaries, past and potential, aren’t wearying; they are gearing up. By the way, which country was doing most of the fighting against us in Korea on Christmas Day 1950? Ah yes, the People’s Republic of China. And it was China’s Chairman Mao who dubbed the United States a “paper tiger.”

The United States is not a paper tiger, but if other countries get the mistaken idea that we are, future Christmas nights will be anything but silent.

Bhutto wanted ties with Israel, sought Mossad protection

Israeli media reports on Friday revealed that slain Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto intended to establish official relations with the Jewish state if elected and was seeking Mossad protection in the interim.

Speaking to The Jerusalem Post, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert grieved over Bhutto’s assassination following an election rally on Thursday, and said that upon her return to Pakistan in October after years of exile Bhutto conveyed to him via a mutual acquaintance that she wanted close ties between Israel and Pakistan.

The Hebrew daily newspaper Ma’ariv further revealed that Bhutto had asked Israel’s Mossad spy agency, along with the CIA and Britain’s Scotland Yard, to help protect her in the run-up to Pakistan’s January 8 election. Bhutto complained that current Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf was trying to make her an easy target for assassination by now allowing her to use adequate protective measures.

According to the report, Israel’s Foreign Ministry was in favor of aiding Bhutto, though the government ultimately decided against it for fear of angering the Musharraf regime and upsetting relations with neighboring India, a close ally of Israel engaged in an ongoing bitter confrontation with Pakistan.

Israeli leaders lamented that Bhutto, a popular former prime minister who was twice deposed by authoritarian elements, could have served as a bridge between Israel and the Muslim world.

FIVE FOREIGN NATIONALS INDICTED FOR BEING ILLEGAL AGENTS FOR VENEZUELZA

FIVE FOREIGN NATIONALS INDICTED

FOR BEING ILLEGAL AGENTS FOR VENEZUELZA

Jim Kouri, CPP
December 28, 2007
NewsWithViews.com

Four Venezuelans and an Uruguayan national were charged on December 20 by a federal grand jury on charges of acting and conspiring to act as agents of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela (“Venezuela”) within the United States, without prior notification to the Attorney General of the United States, as required by law.

R. Alexander Acosta, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, Kenneth L. Wainstein, Assistant Attorney General for National Security, and Jonathan I. Solomon, Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Miami Field Office announced the indictments at a press conference in Miami on December 20.

Charged in the latest Indictment, which supersedes the complaint previously filed, were defendants Moises Maionica, 36, Antonio Jose Canchica Gomez, 37, Rodolfo Wanseele Paciello, 40, Franklin Duran, 40, and Carlos Kauffmann, 35. All were previously arrested on a criminal complaint, except for defendant Antonio Jose Canchica Gomez, who remains at large. Maionica, Duran and Kauffmann were ordered detained pending trial, and Wanseele’s bond is being appealed by the government.

If convicted, the defendants face a statutory maximum penalty of ten (10) years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. The defendants will be arraigned on the Indictment on Friday, December 28, 2007 before the duty Magistrate Judge.

The Indictment alleges that the defendants coordinated and participated in a series of meetings, beginning in August 2007, in South Florida with Guido Alejandro Antonini Wilson to procure Antonini’s help in concealing the source of an intended $800,000 cash contribution to the political campaign of a candidate in the recent Argentine presidential election of October 28, 2007. The last meeting took place on December 11, 2007, when defendants Maionica, Duran, and another individual met with Antonini to discuss the creation of false documents in furtherance of the cover-up.

According to documents filed in the case, including the complaint affidavit and Indictment, the events culminating in these charges began on August 4, 2007, when Antonini flew by Cessna Citation, bearing registration number N5113S, from Venezuela to Aeroparque Jorge Newbery in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The privately chartered aircraft had previously departed from Caracas Maiquetía International Airport in Venezuela, carrying eight passengers on board, including, among others, Guido Alejandro Antonini Wilson. Upon arrival at Buenos Aires, Argentine Customs Service inspected the luggage offloaded from the Cessna Citation, and found approximately $800,000 in United States currency in luggage being carried by Guido Alejandro Antonini Wilson. The Argentine authorities seized the money and Antonini returned to his South Florida home.

The Indictment alleges that beginning in mid-August, 2007 and continuing through December 11, 2007, the defendants and other participants in the conspiracy, acting as agents of the government of Venezuela, sought to obtain the assistance of Guido Alejandro Antonini Wilson, a US citizen who travels under both United States and Venezuelan passports, in concealing from the people of Argentina and others, the source and destination and the role of the government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in the attempted delivery of the approximately $800,000.

During these meetings, the defendants told Antonini that various high-ranking Venezuelan government officials, including from the Office of the Vice President of the Republic, members of the DISIP (Intelligence and Preventive Services Directorate), and a high-ranking official from the Justice Ministry of Venezuela, were aware of this matter. The defendants told Antonini that these funds had been destined for the campaign of a candidate in the Argentine presidential election of October 28, 2007.

Mr. Acosta commended the investigative efforts of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for its work in this investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Thomas J. Mulvihill and Senior Trial Attorney Clifford I. Rones, of the Counterespionage Section at the Justice Department’s National Security Division.

HAPPY 2008 – THE BLOOD BATH CONTINUES By Dr. Laurie Roth

HAPPY 2008 – THE BLOOD BATH CONTINUES

By Dr. Laurie Roth
December 28, 2007
NewsWithViews.com

The blood bath continues worldwide at the hands of Islamic fundamentalists! Now, we see Benazir Bhutto, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, assassinated. The third murder attempt finally got her. She was the largest opposition leader to take on Musharif in the upcoming election and sane voice for democracy in the Region. She had dared to say, as her Father did (and was hanged), that she would try to destroy terrorism and pursue rights for all….even those yucky and sinful creatures like women! Apparently, Al Kaeda and the Taliban didn’t want human rights pushed and freedom for all. It would have been a grievous offense to Sharia law (the Nazi rule book) and Mohammed. What would that do to all the folks being hired to murder people for not wearing cover, not praying enough, making the mistake of being gang raped, arguing with their husbands, and daring to have a pesky opinion? Kill them all I tell you!

As I think back over this last year and since 9/11, I find myself wanting to not only remember the gift Jesus gave us all at Christmas time, but NEVER forget the evil and enemy we face! Since 9/11 we have thwarted 19 terrorist attacks against America alone. I think it is critical to not forget these near misses and the courage and great work of our CIA, FBI, military and police. We are all too often very quick to point out all the communication problems, what is not working, who doesn’t get it…on and on. Nineteen times though, a whole lot of great Americans did something right for us and saved tons of lives. In between the festivities and food, remember the following attacks, THWARTED and thank God for America!

You may recall Richard Reid, December 2001 (he was the British guy, follower of Osama, who was hiding explosives in his shoes, aboard a flight from Paris to Miami) CAUGHT! BRAVO to all who caught him! The movie from hell continues with Jose Padilla, May 2002 (caught at O’Hare Airport having just returned from Pakistan. He was planning a dirty bomb for us all!) BRAVO AGAIN to US authorities! The ship of killers continues! Then there was the Lackawanna Six back in 2002 (They were the six New Yorkers and US citizens who were conspiring with terrorist groups). CAUGHT!

Then there was Iyman Faris in 2003 (arrested for conspiring to commit an act of terrorism. A nice guy from Kashmir who lived in Ohio and was a regular, middle America, nice terrorist). I DON’T REMEMBER MUCH IN THE MEDIA ABOUT ALL THESE PLOTS. DO YOU? The plots against us continued with the Virginia Jihad Network, caught back in 2003. (11 men who were up to no good, conspiring to support terrorist organizations and found to have connections with Al Kaeda) CAUGHT and STOPPED. CONTRATULATIONS to our authorities again!

The attack attempts continued in 2004 with Dhiren Barot, who lead a terror cell and wanted to attack the New York Stock Exchange. CAUGHT! Then there was James Elshafey and Shahawar Matin Siraj (they were plotting to bomb Madison Square Gardon and the subway station). Are you inspired yet? The near misses and plots against us in our OWN COUNTRY continue. Remember Yassin Aref and Mohammed Hossain in 2004 (they were planning to purchase a shoulder-fired grenade launcher and take out a few pesky planes). CAUGHT! Umer Hayat and Hamid Hayat, 2005 (more near attacks planned) CAUGHT! Levar Haely Washington, Gregory Vernon Patterson, Hammad Riaz Samana and Kevin James (they conspired to attack the Los Angeles National Guard facilities and synagogues, just to name a few) CAUGHT!

The blessings and sharing roll on with Michael Reynolds (had a plot to blow up a Wyoming natural gas refinery and pipeline) CAUGHT! Shouldn’t we listen though to the far lefters and America Haters as we reflect on all these near-miss murders? Let’s give all the terrorists talk shows, free treatment for therapy, a national apology for arresting them and ruining their plans to impress Mohammed and kill all us infidels!

There are more attack attempts if you can believe it! Thanks to much of our 5th column media you probably haven’t heard or don’t even remember most of these nasty characters and near misses!


Advertisement

I’m not done yet. There was Mohammad Zaki aAmawi, Marwan Othman El-Hindi, Zand Wassim Mazloum CAUGHT in 2006 (I would have arrested them for terror just because of their long, weird names). Actually, they were caught trying to kill and injure people in the middle east and supporting terror organizations. There was Syed Haris Ahmen and Ehsanul Islam Sadequee (These nice little terrorists were planning attacks in the D.C. area) CAUGHT!

All this space in my article was taken just reviewing attack attempts since 2001 in our country. Our near misses continue. We now see, Assem Hammoud, 2006, (this fine little killer, planned to attack underground transit links in New Jersey. There were 8 suspects CAUGHT in this one). I’m almost to 2007 folks! Hang on. Remember the deadly liquid Explosives Plot in 2006? (This was the plot that the Brits were able to stop where terrorists were planning to load 10 commercial airliners headed to the U.S., with liquid explosives! CAUGHT!

Now, we have survived to 2007. We have almost made it to HAPPY NEW YEAR! You may remember the near miss at Fort Dix in 2007. (Six men were arrested and planned to kill a ton of US soldiers with assault rifles and grenades) CAUGHT! We also saw in 2007 the JFK Plot. (Four guys planned to blow up a jet fuel artery that would run through residential neighborhoods at John F. Kennedy International Airport) CAUGHT! Finally, we have our lovely poster boy of Al Kaeda terror caught in 2007, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. (This guy was a very senior operative and terrorist for Osama Bin Laden and planned many attacks and bombings) CAUGHT!

As I ponder this last year and the last several years of near misses and danger we have faced, I must pause and THANK our brave, dedicated, and competent authorities, from plane officials, to FBI, CIA, Military, Police, Border Patrol, Minutemen and others who helped thwart and stop the INCREDABLE LOSS OF HUMAN LIFE….OVER 19 CLOSE CALLS IN OUR COUNTRY ALONE!

If you haven’t figured it out yet from reading through all this that we have been in constant danger since 9/11…..then get a clue! In the election coming up, we MUST vote- in someone who will continue defining the REAL evil that continues to conspire against us. We must elect a President who will back our soldiers, CIA, FBI and other authorities continuing to face the Islamic Fundamentalist plots! Talking and negotiation is always nice if you are talking to sane people. Our enemy is ONLY defined by hate, evil and murder. It doesn’t matter how well you talk, apologize for being an American, or negotiate. You are still an Infidel and must die or be enslaved!

Be vigilant, pray for our leaders and country and support our authorities! Some of you wouldn’t be reading this now if you didn’t live in this country and have a vast host of people, and defensive policies, working on your behalf!!! Some of those soldiers and authorities who did all this for us were Democrats, Republicans, Independents and Libertarians. Surviving until 2008 has never been about living in red or blue states! It has been all about living in “red, white and blue” states as devoted Americans who love and serve God and country! Happy New Year to you all! May we catch a BUNCH more bad guys!!!

WILL U.N. HAVE JURISDICTION OVER ALL PRIVATE PROPERTY?

December 28, 2007 Leave a comment

WILL U.N. HAVE JURISDICTION OVER ALL PRIVATE PROPERTYDerry Brownfield
December 28, 2007
NewsWithViews.com

H.R. 2421, “Clean Water Restoration Act of 2007” is due to be marked up for a vote in the US House sometime this fall. According to the bill, water is a unique and precious resource that is necessary to sustain human life and the life of animals and plants. This bill will protect intrastate waters and “OTHER WATERS OF THE UNITED STATES.” “OTHER WATERS” are defined in the legislation as:

“All waters subject to the ebb and flow of the tide, the territorial seas, and all interstate and intrastate waters and their tributaries, including lakes, rivers, streams (including intermittent streams), mudflats, sandflats, wetlands, sloughs, prairie potholes, wet meadows, playa lakes, natural ponds, and all impoundments of the foregoing, to the fullest extent that these waters, or activities affecting these waters, are subject to the legislative power of Congress under the Constitution.” (Playa lakes are dry lake beds usually found in a desert basin.)

This new definition of “WATERS OF THE UNITED STATES” strikes out all mention of the word “navigable.” Up until now, if water is not navigable it is the property of the owner of the land on which the water is located. Webster’s Classic Dictionary defines navigable as water sufficiently deep and wide enough to allow ships to pass. A farm pond, a manmade lake, sink holes, mudflats and all standing water was private property. If a farmer or rancher had a creek running through his land, if it was not navigable, it was his to use as he pleased. This bill is not about clean water; it’s about restricting the use of all land, including private property by redefining “WATERS OF THE UNITED STATES.”

Then there is the “LAW OF THE SEA TREATY.” December 10, 1982 the United Nations held a convention on the Law of the Sea. An International Agreement resulted from the third United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea that took place from 1973 through 1982. The Law of the Sea Convention is a set of rules for the use of the world’s oceans, which cover 70 percent of the earth’s surface. The convention was concluded in 1982 and to date 154 countries and the European Community have joined. The United States did not and so far has not joined because it claims this treaty is unfavorable to America’s economy and security. Ronald Reagan was President in 1982 and he not only refused to sign the treaty, he went so far as to fire the individuals who encouraged him to sign. President Clinton signed the treaty soon after taking office in 1993 but the Senate wouldn’t ratify it. On May 16, 2007, President Bush announced that he had urged the Senate to ratify the treaty.

If ratified, the United States would be subject to a United Nations Court mandating maritime issues involving fisheries, marine environmental protection, preservation, research and navigation. We would be submitting our jurisdiction to the International Criminal Court. The treaty requires adherence to policies that regulate deep-sea mining, and forces participants to adopt laws and regulations to control marine pollution. Under the treaty a corporation cannot bring suit, but must rely upon its country of origin to address the corporation’s concerns “before the UN agency.”

As I stated earlier, the Clean Water Restoration Act of 2007 defines “all waters” including dry rivers and sea-beds located on desert lands as “waters of the United States.” If the US Senate ratifies the Law of the Sea Treaty, and HR 2421 becomes law, will the United Nations have jurisdiction over our property? The United Nations is a private organization which invites countries to join. Those member countries have representatives who comprise various committees and councils under the UN organization. As Devvy Kidd wrote in 2004, “The Untied States should not enter into treaties with organizations like the UN anymore than the US would enter into a treaty with Ducks Unlimited.”

“Today, a New World Order is struggling to be born a world quite different from the one we have known. A world in which the rule of law supplants the rule of the jungle” –George H.W. Bush

“We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent.” –Paul Warburg

We are hurtling through time to that last desperate appointment, an appointment with a seemingly unavoidable inevitable destiny that has been shaped by a cowardly and conscious acquiescence to the menservants of that dragon of old, Satan; pretender to the throne and architect of the new world order. With ever increasing boldness and with relentless persevering stealth these earthly agents employ their demonically rendered powers in service to their spiritual mentors, the rulers of the darkness of this world.

Who are these servants of the evil one and how is it they have acquired the power to apply the sting of the devil to shape the destiny of the masses and usurp the individual freedoms intrinsically bestowed by the power of the Eternal?

They are the politicians that possess the offices and inhabit the chambers of government, and who legislate and mandate against the liberties and best interests of the very people who have bestowed upon them their law making and executive powers. They are the judges who inveigh against the guarantees of the Constitution, deny the protections of the Bill of Rights and uphold accursed social aberrations. They are the educators that corrupt the morals of the young, inculcate in them dark and occultist values and deny them the basics of a functional education. They are the corporate barons who use and abuse people in their employ and rob them of human dignity and well being in order to accumulate the obscene wealth, which enables possession of a controlling influence over the institutions of government. They are the bankers and financial manipulators who enslave the people by controlling the money and manipulating the economy to their own interests to the exclusion of the interests of all others. And they are the battalions of unrighteous tyrants of a bureaucracy that piles upon the people hundreds of thousands of insanely irresponsible decrees that stifle freedom and sadistically inflict misery and wretchedness.

How is it that these, who do the devils bidding, have been allowed the latitude to bestride the people and subject them to their will, from whence does their power come? The answer is that it comes from the people themselves. It is from the libidinous, avaricious, unethical and perverse deportment of the people that their strength and power is derived.

God uses Satan and those fallen spirits with him to execute judgment and to discipline the wayward and the disobedient. David understood this when he prayed in regard to his enemies, “Set you wicked men over them and let Satan stand at their side.” Satan never operates outside of the limits allowed him by God. Do we think that God does not use Satan for His own purposes? If we believe that he does not we deceive ourselves and ought to adjust our thinking in that regard.

The Eternal has been infinitely patient in regard to the debasement of this nation. His blessings have remained with the nation through a continuum of a putrid abdication of morals, an abject and vile defilement of His name and an increasingly venomous and depraved assault upon His Son and the church that He established. This nation has in very plain words pushed its luck. It is teetering upon a precipice overlooking an inferno and is about to slide into a fiery destruction.

There appears to be a glimmer of an awakening in the nation in regard to recognition of the dire times that confront us and of the malevolent intent of those who rule over us. Many are staring the devil in the face and shrink from the evil of him, and they see his wickedness personified in those who do his bidding. It is a new awareness that we are witnessing a God-given discernment, a discernment that enables the newly enlightened to know the perverse spirit of the establishment politicians who crisscross the country in rabid frenzy seeking desperately to maintain control of, by lie and prevarication, that which they have achieved in service to their gods. Increasingly the newly enlightened are able to see through the evasiveness and the fabrications of the national media, and understand that it also is an arm of the internationalists of a one-world persona.

It is futile to attempt to read the mind of the Eternal, but it may be that we are seeing, albeit in a small way, an awakening in the nation that just might bring the people of this nation to reality in regard to their spiritually fallen condition. We have on the political scene a man with a simple message, a message to inspire those who suffer under the increasingly oppressive hand of a tyrannical government. It is a message from one who would set a course of action that would allow Christians to take responsibility for moral and legal affairs individually and locally and not view the government as their savior, one whose faith is of the Creator and the Constitution in that order. That man is Ron Paul. It is always the simple message that has true value and meaning – witness the Gospel, a simple message of salvation delivered by humble servants of God.

The train to redemption is in the station, and the invitation to board for a return trip, upon shining rails, to a government of the people and for the people is being sounded. It will be an exciting trip, but one that is fraught with danger and subject to the intrigues of the new world elites and their demon companions. We have a champion who has challenged their malefic control and shaken his fist in their contemptible faces, he has the courage can we be less disposed in the face of that kind of moxie?

We are in perhaps the most dangerous times of our history. This nation is on the cusp of total subjection to the dark forces for world enslavement. Soon, very soon there will no way out for those in the grip of this satanic cabal other than death. Too be sure these agents for total ascendancy over a hapless people are sensing the stirring of a rebellious spirit among those that they have kept down by an unjust use of force and authority. Their goal for world domination is so nearly within reach that they are salivating like Pavlov’s dogs at the very thought of achieving that goal. Make no mistake about it they will stop at nothing to check an advancing rebellion against their agenda, and the mass slaughter of dissident citizens is not beyond their contemplation. They are in control of the resources and possess the military means to carry out such a program of extermination if they feel that an incipient rebellion will come to realization and erase their gains and contradict their power.

In the past these agents for the enslavement of mankind have proved to be masters of assassination as a means to remove those who oppose their agenda or stand in their way. By way of an example consider the following.

In April of 1961 President John F. Kennedy sealed his own fate with a speech to the American Newspapers Publisher’s Association. The president said, in part, in that speech the following, “The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers, which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control.”

That speech was the harbinger of the elimination of John F. Kennedy as a threat to the internationalists and to their plans for a world order. It is evident that the president well knew of the contrivances that were being formulated in secret chambers and carried out clandestinely with the aid of well-placed functionaries within the government.

Ron Paul cannot afford to be cavalier in regard to the threat that looms over him. He must know that even now his elimination by assassination is being discussed in those very same secret chambers that president Kennedy spoke of in the speech that helped to determine his ultimate fate. We are operating within the devils realm, and since God’s word identifies him as a liar and a murderer from the beginning we can expect the very worst from those who emulate this degenerate spirit.

The ultimate fate of this nation rests with the people. We will see either a change in the collective morals of this nation and a return to limited government and a commitment to Biblical principles or we can remain prideful and recalcitrant, in which event the Eternal will simply allow the dragon of old to determine our fate. And that fate will be as unpleasant as the devil that hates us can make it.

“How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.”

The Essence of Liberty #211, The question of sovereignty: Never really explained

December 28, 2007 Leave a comment
The Essence of Liberty: Part 211 

Compiled by 

Dr. Jimmy T. (Gunny) LaBaume 

A Summary of Gutzman, Kevin R.C. The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Constitution 

(The book is available from the Ludwig von Mises Institute at http://www.mises.org) 

Chapter 3: Selling the Constitution

The question of sovereignty: Never really explained

In The Federalist No. 9, Hamilton writes in his characteristic muddle, “The proposed constitution makes (the states) constituent parts of the national sovereignty. Where did “national sovereignty” come from? The states had bee sovereign since independence.

In Federalist 23 , he admitted knowing the distinction between a federal and a national government when he wrote, ”the circumstances of our country…demand a… confederate instead of a sole government.”

He concluded in Federalist 28: ”The people…are in a situation, through…their state governments, to take measures for their own defense…(as) independent nations.” He holds out state resistance to federal policy as the “the last ditch” of a free people’s defense against a runaway federal government. However, he cannot resist referring to the federal government as “national.” This calls the reader’s attention back to his earlier statements about sovereignty and again leaves the conclusion muddled. If the federal government possesses national sovereignty, then on what basis can the non-sovereign states ever resist? Hamilton (Publius) contradicts himself.

In Federalist 31, Hamilton says, “The state governments…are invested with complete sovereignty.” In No. 32, he concedes that the states ”retain (the taxing) authority…and that an attempt…(by the) national government to abridge (this authority)…would be …(an) assumption of power unwarranted by…the Constitution.” Then in No. 33, he wrote, It (the Constitution) did not imply that the federal government had any greater powers than those specifically stated. How, then, did he think that Congress and the state legislatures could cooperate in areas where their jurisdiction overlapped—for example, as in taxation?

In Federalist 34 Hamilton cites the Roman Republic as having two separate legislative bodies each possessed the power to annul the acts of the other. He hits upon this solution again in No. 36. Thus, it could be deduced from this that sovereignty did not lie in either the state or the federal government, but in the people. But he failed to grasp this logical implication.

Hamilton’s the thinking can be explained by his preference for the British model of government wherein Parliament, not the people, was sovereign. It would seem that he never understood the theoretical change caused by the American Revolution which substituted popular sovereignty (the people) for governmental sovereignty.

Pak govt reveals how Benazir was killed

By IBNlive.com
Friday December 28, 08:26 PM

New Delhi: Mystery shrouds the death of former Pakistan prime minister Benazir Bhutto. In an explosive revelation, Pakistan’s Interior Minister Hamid Nawaz on Friday said that Bhutto did not die of bullet wounds.

Nawaz said that Bhutto died from a head injury. At least seven doctors from the Rawalpindi General Hospital – where the leader was rushed immediately after the attack – say there were no bullet marks on Bhutto’s body.

The doctors have submitted a report to the Pakistan government in which they say that no post-mortem was performed on Bhutto’s body and they had not received any instructions to perform one.

“The report says she had head injuries – an irregular patch – and the X-ray doesn’t show any bullet in the head. So it was probably the shrapnel or any other thing has struck her in her said. That damaged her brain, causing it to ooze and her death. The report categorically ssyas there’s no wound other than that,” Nawaz told a Pakistani news channel.

Government sources say there will be an investigation to determine why no autopsy was conducted.
According to agency reports doctors at the Rawalpindi General Hospital tried desperately for 41 minutes to revive former prime minister Bhutto after she was shot but failed in their efforts.
Bhutto was declared dead 41 minutes after she was brought the hospital’s emergency department at 1735 hrs (local time) (1805 hrs IST) with open wounds on her left temporal bone from which “brain matter was exuding”, the report said.
It said Bhutto was not breathing at the time and her pulse and blood pressure “were not recordable”.
IANS adds: According to the report, “immediate resuscitation (process) was started” and she was taken to the operation theatre where she was attended by a team of doctors headed by Musaddiq Khan, principal of the Rawalpindi Medical College, Dawn reported Friday.
“Left antrolateral thoracotomy for open cardiac massage was performed,” the hospital report said, adding: “In spite of all the possible measures she could not be revived and (was) declared dead at 1816 hrs IST (6.16 p.m.).”
An autopsy was not carried out at the hospital “because the district administration and police had not requested the hospital authorities (for this)”, the report said.
Bhutto was shot not far from where Pakistan’s first prime minister Liaquat Ali Khan was killed by an assassin’s bullet on Oct 16, 1951.

THE BHUTTO ASSASSINATION: NOT WHAT SHE SEEMED TO BE By RALPH PETERS

THE BHUTTO ASSASSINATION: NOT WHAT SHE SEEMED TO BE By RALPH PETERS
http://tinyurl.com/2wt8e8

December 28, 2007 — FOR the next several days, you’re going to read and hear a great deal of pious nonsense in the wake of the assassination of Pakistan’s former prime minister, Benazir Bhutto. Her country’s better off without her. She may serve Pakistan better after her death than she did in life.

We need have no sympathy with her Islamist assassin and the extremists behind him to recognize that Bhutto was corrupt, divisive, dishonest and utterly devoid of genuine concern for her country.

She was a splendid con, persuading otherwise cynical Western politicians and “hardheaded” journalists that she was not only a brave woman crusading in the Islamic wilderness, but also a thoroughbred democrat.

In fact, Bhutto was a frivolously wealthy feudal landlord amid bleak poverty. The scion of a thieving political dynasty, she was always more concerned with power than with the wellbeing of the average Pakistani. Her program remained one of old-school patronage, not increased productivity or social decency.

Educated in expensive Western schools, she permitted Pakistan’s feeble education system to rot – opening the door to Islamists and their religious schools.

During her years as prime minister, Pakistan went backward, not forward. Her husband looted shamelessly and ended up fleeing the country, pursued by the courts. The Islamist threat – which she artfully played both ways – spread like cancer.

But she always knew how to work Westerners – unlike the hapless Gen. Pervez Musharraf, who sought the best for his tormented country but never knew how to package himself.

Military regimes are never appealing to Western sensibilities. Yet, there are desperate hours when they provide the only, slim hope for a country nearing collapse. Democracy is certainly preferable – but, unfortunately, it’s not always immediately possible. Like spoiled children, we have to have it now – and damn the consequences.

In Pakistan, the military has its own forms of graft; nonetheless, it remains the least corrupt institution in the country and the only force holding an unnatural state together. In Pakistan back in the ’90s, the only people I met who cared a whit about the common man were military officers.

Americans don’t like to hear that. But it’s the truth.

Bhutto embodied the flaws in Pakistan’s political system, not its potential salvation. Both she and her principal rival, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, failed to offer a practical vision for the future – their political feuds were simply about who would divvy up the spoils.

From its founding, Pakistan has been plagued by cults of personality, by personal, feudal loyalties that stymied the development of healthy government institutions (provoking coups by a disgusted military). When she held the reins of government, Bhutto did nothing to steer in a new direction – she merely sought to enhance her personal power.

Now she’s dead. And she may finally render her country a genuine service (if cynical party hacks don’t try to blame Musharraf for their own benefit). After the inevitable rioting subsides and the spectacular conspiracy theories cool a bit, her murder may galvanize Pakistanis against the Islamist extremists who’ve never gained great support among voters, but who nonetheless threaten the state’s ability to govern.

As a victim of fanaticism, Bhutto may shine as a rallying symbol with a far purer light than she cast while alive. The bitter joke is that, while she was never serious about freedom, women’s rights and fighting terrorism, the terrorists took her rhetoric seriously – and killed her for her words, not her actions.

Nothing’s going to make Pakistan’s political crisis disappear – this crisis may be permanent, subject only to intermittent amelioration. (Our State Department’s policy toward Islamabad amounts to a pocket full of platitudes, nostalgia for the 20th century and a liberal version of the white man’s burden mindset.)

The one slim hope is that this savage murder will – in the long term – clarify their lot for Pakistan’s citizens. The old ways, the old personalities and old parties have failed them catastrophically. The country needs new leaders – who don’t think an election victory entitles them to grab what little remains of the national patrimony.

In killing Bhutto, the Islamists over-reached (possibly aided by rogue elements in Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence, one of the murkiest outfits on this earth). Just as al Qaeda in Iraq overplayed its hand and alienated that country’s Sunni Arabs, this assassination may disillusion Pakistanis who lent half an ear to Islamist rhetoric.

A creature of insatiable ambition, Bhutto will now become a martyr. In death, she may pay back some of the enormous debt she owes her country.

Gunny G: No Thanx, King George….

December 28, 2007 Leave a comment

No, thanx, King George!
And you can shove yer ethanol up yer nose too–I don’t want that crap in MY vehicle! I should say BigBroMoFo’s vehicle–neither I nor the manufactureers of it ever wanted all the bells and whistles I have to put up with to make sure I–as a loyal subject–am buckled up, doors closed (and I’m automatically locked in), etc., etc.

Matter of fact, it wasn’t me and/or the manufacturers who wanted all the smog controls, caty-muffler, etc. on it. This bs all started back about 1963 with the mandatory gubmint PCV on our Personal vehicles–just cost 50 cents to a buck, too little a thing to complain about, right? Wrong, it was just the beginning. Just like the experimental zip code.

The cars today are great, except that, as good as they are, with all the gubmint required stuff on them are nothing less than a three-legged horse.

And it p!sses me off to get out of my vehicle and go around to the back of it to get my groceries out and the (bigbromofo’s) door is locked automatically.

All because we continue to elect/reelect scoundrels as our Kings.

BS!


Vote for Ron Paul–it’s the least we can do.

Air Force To Fly On Synthetic Fuel?
By Gordon Lubold, Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor

The US Air Force is experimenting with a synthetic fuel that could become a cheaper fuel-alternative for the entire US military and even commercial aviation, officials say.

As the cost of a barrel of oil approaches $100 and US reliance on foreign oil sources grows, the Air Force, the single biggest user of energy in the US government, wants to find a cheaper alternative. Air Force officials think they may have found it in a fuel that blends the normal JP-8 fuel, currently used for the military’s jet engines, with a synthetic fuel made from natural gas and liquid coal.

The 50-50 blend is less expensive – between $40 to $75 per barrel – and it burns cleaner than normal fuel. The synthetic fuel is purchased from US-based suppliers and then blended with the military’s JP-8 fuel.

“We’re making sure the Air Force is ahead of the curve so we can utilize this domestic resource instead of having to be both dependent on foreign sources and send dollars offshore instead of spending the dollars here in the US,” says Kevin Billings, a deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force helping to oversee the initiative.

Last week, on the 104th anniversary of the Wright Brothers’ first flight, the Air Force flew a C-17 Globemaster III from Washington state to New Jersey, the first transcontinental flight using the synthetic fuel. The flight was an attempt to demonstrate that pilots could fly the plane, considered a “workhorse” of the Air Force fleet, using “syn-fuel” without degrading the performance of the plane’s engine.

The flight went well, officials say.

“It was completely unremarkable, which is exactly what we wanted to have happen,” says Mr. Billings.

The flight followed a similar demonstration with a B-52 Stratofortress bomber last year. The fuel was then certified for use in the B-52 this summer. The service hopes to have all its planes certified to run on the fuel within the next five years. And by 2016, the Air Force hopes to meet half their US demand for fuel using the synthetic blend, first used in the 1920s, but further developed during World War II.

The Air Force would like to increase the amount of synthetic fuel it uses by that time, but recognizes that the private sector’s push to get there will largely determine how fast the Air Force can move towards its goal or accelerate beyond it.

“[T]he market isn’t moving fast enough yet for us to move any quicker,” says William Anderson, assistant secretary of the Air Force for installations, environment and logistics.
The Air Force hopes to stimulate the private sector to embrace the move toward synthetic fuels, which will help private firms as much as it does the Air Force, says Mr. Anderson.

“We believe that we need domestic sources of aviation fuel to assure the American taxpayer long term that we can fight tonight and fight tomorrow,” said Anderson during a recent roundtable for defense reporters. “And that requires that a domestic synthetic or alternative aviation fuel market grow in this country.”

The reality that the US government, the largest net importer of foreign oil in 2006, can no longer rely so heavily on foreign oil has emerged as the price of oil climbs and instability in many countries increases.

At the same time, more demand for oil in places like China and India, has forced the US to look for other ways to fuel its own demand. Currently, about 58 percent of the nation’s petroleum comes from foreign sources, and that is expected to jump to 68 percent by 2030, Air Force officials say.

In addition to being cheaper and ultimately more plentiful, synthetic fuel can also be greener, Air Force officials say. The fuel itself burns cleaner than regular JP-8 fuel, but the current process used to make the fuel produces nearly twice the amount of carbon.

The Air Force is requiring the plants that are being built to make the fuel to capture more of the carbon produced and reuse it, thus making the fuel ultimately greener, officials say.

The Air Force is taking “a leadership role” in the endeavor and working to ensure that the fuel can be used by Army, Navy, and Marine aircraft as well, according to Air Force officials.

Although the Air Force is the biggest user of energy in the US government, it only accounts for about 10 percent of the country’s total demand for aviation fuel, a fact not lost on scientists working to develop the synthetic fuel for commercial aviation use. The Air Force is working with Boeing and Pratt & Whitney on the project. The C-17 was chosen for the transcontinental flight because its engines are similar to a Boeing 757 plane, commonly used by commercial airlines.

At least one member of Congress is on board.

“The Air Force alternative fuel program is as important to the nation as it is to the Air Force because it keeps focus on alternative fuels by the largest user of the fuel in the US government,” said Rep. Jim Saxton (R) of New Jersey, who attended the event celebrating the landing of the C-17 in his state last week.

“We must continue to support the research … to find cleaner, more environmentally friendly fuels that include both renewable and unconventional fuel,” he added.

Annus Horribilis Ahead? By Patrick J. Buchanan

Annus Horribilis Ahead?
By Patrick J. Buchanan
Friday, December 28, 2007

http://tinyurl.com/yt8sm5
With the New Hampshire primary on Jan. 8, and the Iowa caucuses dead ahead, the nominees of both parties may be known in two weeks. Surely, after Feb. 5, when a slew of primaries are held, both races will be all but over.

Then, from Feb. 5 to Nov. 4, nine months, those nominees will be made to run an Iroquois gauntlet.

To define them, before either defines himself or herself for the voters, both parties will engage in sustained barrage attacks. Their opposition research arms are stocked with ammunition.

There will be attack ads by the “527s,” independent committees set up by rich folks and interest groups to do for political enemies what the Swift Boat ads did for John Kerry.

Around-the-clock bombing will commence on cable TV from the ubiquitous Democratic and Republican “strategists” trotted out to parrot talking points provided by opposition research.

Investigative reporters will begin digging for dirt, or waiting for the choice moment to dump it, or seek out in the hidden past of the candidate the unearthed scandal that can sink a ticket, as McGovern’s ticket in 1972 was devastated by the revelation that its vice-presidential candidate, Tom Eagleton, had shock treatment, and George W. Bush was derailed by the revelation of a DWI 24 years before.

After nine months of this pounding, even fresh candidates — an Obama, a Huckabee, a Romney — will boast negatives in the 40s. Hillary’s negatives are already there.

Three weeks out from Iowa, Clinton operatives have already suggested the young Obama may not only have used drugs, but sold them, that cocaine was probably his favorite, that we should not forget his middle name is Hussein and that his daddy was a devout Muslim.

Gov. Huckabee helpfully implied to Evangelical Christians that Mormonism, Mitt’s faith, is akin to a cult, and don’t those folks believe Jesus and Satan are brothers?

“Haven’t presidential campaigns always been like this?” comes the reply. Well, not exactly.

What is different now is not only the duration of the campaign. This one began a year ago. It is the money available to parties and their pit bulls, the 527s. It is the existence of 24-hour cable — Fox News, CNN, MSNBC — that relishes charges and conflict, for that is what draws the audience upon which we live or die. It is the population explosion of screeds on the Internet with its vast array of websites able to bring gaffes and scandal to the mainstream in an instant. It is the telephone videocam there to record every moment, every move of a candidate, and YouTube there to receive it.

By November, when America chooses her new head of state, the country will have already been polarized over the choice.

And what will that new president inherit?

The Iraq war entering its sixth year as the U.S. troops that have brought some stability to Anbar and Baghdad start home. An Afghan war in its seventh year, where the NATO allies balk at combat, the Taliban and al Qaeda have found sanctuary in a Pakistan whose leading figure was assassinated yesterday, the poppy traffickers are back, and Kabul’s writ does not extend beyond city limits.

At home, with housing prices sinking, foreclosures soaring and the Fed pumping out money to prevent the economy from seizing up, the nation could be entering a recession. Yet, with the dollar sinking abroad, we could also be facing a recurrence of inflation.

We are bitterly divided over immigration, legal and illegal, and the issue grips every state. As the world is not going to stop coming here, this is not going away, ever. Meanwhile, the culture war, rooted as it is in conflicting concepts of morality and patriotism, rages on. Even the staid old Episcopal Church cannot remain united.

Though we boast about our diversity, it appears that the more diverse we become as a nation, the less united we are as a people. Imus, Jena and the Duke rape case testify to it. As one wag puts it, the only thing melting now is the pot. Two-thirds of the nation think America is headed in the wrong direction.

The America the next president will lead is no longer able to win or end her wars, defend her borders, enforce her immigration laws, balance her budget, eliminate a chronic trade deficit that now runs to 6 percent of GDP, or maintain the value of the dollar. We save nothing.

Though addicted to oil, we refuse to drill off our coast or in our own territory. Meanwhile, Arabs and Asians, choking on dollars, are buying up our corporate and strategic assets and taking over our toll roads.

There is a great deal of ruin in a nation, said Adam Smith. Looks like we are going to find out.

Happy New Year.

Mind Control, MK ULTRA and A Course in Miracles, and Oprah….

Mind Control, MK ULTRA and A Course in Miracles
Victoria Hardy
December 20, 2007

There is much that occurs in our world that we do not see, besides the mystical/spiritual threads that run through us, keeping our hope and wonder alive, there is also the subtle human maneuvering keeping us on a path that may not be our choosing. I’ve often wondered why people choose to manipulate others and it appears to be an elementary question, we manipulate because we can, we manipulate because we like control and we manipulate because we like money. Simple, really. The saddest thing is that most of those in the midst of manipulation do not see what is occurring and later wake up in the nightmare realization that they were used simply to appease the desire of another.

Our world ruled by manipulation, we are told by the media what to wear, how to eat, what pills to take, what is truth and what is illusion and when we disagree and apply critical thinking, then we are the outcast or just strange. The barrage of media images is a form of mind control, whether we choose to see it or not, we attach ourselves to the ideas thrown at us daily and these ideas become the new reality. It seems a lot folks understand that if they see it on television or hear it on talk radio, then it is truth and if they do not see it or hear it in their familiar outlets, then it is surely a non-truth, but truth can be cold and sometimes it hides very well.

Several months ago, after writing an article on Project BLUEBEAM, a conspiracy theory of mind-blowing proportions, I received a handful of emails, from different people, all referring me to the same book. The book is called A Course in Miracles and many refer to it as the “New Age Bible”. The emails detailed how this book and accompanying course had changed their lives, how like me, they used to worry about the state of the world, but now they understood, “Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.”

A Course in Miracles has an interesting history and it all started when Dr. Helen Schucman, a non-religious Jew began working with Dr. William Thetford in 1958. It seems Dr. Thetford had ties with the CIA and was working on Project BLUEBIRD, which was later rolled over into the MK ULTRA Project. MK ULTRA was a program focused on mind control, it was created in the 1950s by the CIA with the goal to learn ways to manipulate people’s mental states, alter brain function and create Manchurian Candidates often through the use of drugs and hypnosis. Under the MK ULTRA umbrella there were over a hundred sub projects from the 1950s well into the 1970s and Thetford worked on Personality Theory, subproject 130. List of Subprojects

Schucman was employed at Columbia University with Thetford as a research psychologist for seven years without incident, but then one night on the subway she had a vision. A beautiful light filled the subway car and upon arriving home, the quiet voice, claiming to be Jesus, spoke to her for the first time….

Ron Paul: $20 million shows ‘starvation’ for his message

ELECTION 2008
Ron Paul: $20 million shows ‘starvation’ for his message
Cash coming from Americans ‘not looking for government to take care of them’


Posted: December 28, 2007
1:00 a.m. Eastern

EDITOR’S NOTE: WND staff reporter Jerome Corsi is in Des Moines, Iowa, to report on the Jan. 3 Iowa caucuses and to participate in the Federation for American Immigration Reform talk-radio row. By Jerome R. Corsi


� 2007 WorldNetDaily.com


Ron Paul in Des Moines, Iowa, yesterday (WND photo)

Rep. Ron Paul says the surprising $20 million he is projected to raise this quarter in his bid for the White House shows “there’s a lot of starvation out there for a different message.”

“Our focus on the Constitution, defending our borders and the whole idea of assuming responsibility for themselves appeals to millions of Americans who are not looking for government to take care of them,” the Republican presidential candidate told WND in an interview in Iowa.

Paul contended his campaign � a grassroots movement that comes, he argued, from his message, not from mainstream media focus or campaign hype � enjoyed the most dedicated support in either party.

“We have real loyalty from our supporters,” he said. “Once a voter commits to our campaign, they don’t go back and forth.

“With the other candidates, voters are for this candidate this week and somebody else next week,” Paul emphasized. “Our numbers have been steady and growing. Our voters are not going to switch at the last moment.”

Paul told WND that he hopes to do better in the Iowa caucuses than his poll numbers would indicate.

“The pollsters haven’t realized that my campaign has a lot of independent voters,” Paul said. “We have Democratic voters who have crossed over to support my campaign, and those people usually are not measured by pollsters who focus on party identification.”

(Story continues below)

Paul also expects to get a boost from young voters in Iowa.

“The key is to make sure that young people who be voting for the first time know where to go to participate in the caucus meetings and what to do once they get there,” he said.

Paul made campaign history Dec. 16 by raising $6 million over the Internet in a 24-hour period.

His feat was considered all the more remarkable because of the relative difficulty Iowa caucus frontrunner Mike Huckabee has had raising campaign contributions.

Paul was in Des Moines at the talk-radio row hosted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, while Huckabee appeared at a much-needed fundraising dinner in Florida followed by fund-raising receptions this morning.

“In the next two days, we are going to continue to concentrate on getting our vote out,” Paul said.

“We know where the votes are, and we going to have a lot of young people in town to bring out the vote,” he said. “We will have a lot of TV in the final days of the Iowa caucus, but we know where our voters are, and we are planning to do the phone calling and leg work needed to get the vote out.”

In a press conference yesterday, Paul announced the endorsement of Craig Halverson, the director of the Iowa Minutemen, the state branch of the volunteer border-watch group.

Halverson expressed confidence Paul was the candidate most aware of the threat to U.S. sovereignty caused by open borders.

Paul commented at the news conference: “We can place border guards in Iraq, but somehow we can’t manage to secure our border with Mexico. It doesn’t make any sense.”

The endorsement by the Iowa Minuteman leader was timed to make an impact in the remaining days of the Iowa caucus race, countering Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist’s backing of Huckabee and the endorsement last week of Mitt Romney by Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo.

A Few Reminders

A Few Reminders

by Charley Reese
by Charley Reese


DIGG THIS

A few reminders: Iraq is not our country. Our invasion and occupation are illegal, being in violation of both international law and our own traditions. We were lied into war. We are still being lied to. Both the Bush administration and the Democrats intend to maintain American troops in Iraq indefinitely.

The catchy little phrase “If you break it, you own it” might apply to unpurchased merchandise, but it definitely does not apply to nation-states. You don’t gain title to your neighbor’s house just because you blow it up. We definitely broke Iraq, but that only gives us the burden of sin. It does not entitle us to the country.

It’s easy to forget that when you listen to American politicians in both parties talk about what Iraq has to do or ought to do or should do. The Iraqi government does not have to do anything we tell it, and so far it hasn’t, despite promises to the contrary.

The phrase now being heard most often around Baghdad is “Iraq is finished.” That’s according to Pepe Escobar, a correspondent for Asia Times Online. I urgently recommend his piece “Baghdad: Up Close and Personal.” He and two Iraqi journalists toured the “Red Zone,” which is all of Baghdad except the heavily fortified Green Zone. Compare what he saw and heard with what you hear from the talking heads in Washington.

And, by the way, they traveled in a plain car without armored vehicles, troops and helicopters hovering overhead, which is how American big shots travel. They got shot at and arrested but otherwise survived.

We need to get out of Iraq right now. This folly has already cost us 3,300 American lives, $500 billion in tax money, 30,000 wounded, and there is not so much as a faint glow at the end of the tunnel.

The reason I say both Democrats and Republicans intend a long-term military presence is because that’s what they say if you listen closely. The so-called withdrawal deadline of the Democrats stipulates some troops left in country. To quell an insurgency, if you can do it at all, usually requires about 10 years.

You can see by the casualty figures – overwhelmingly Iraqi – that we are not doing the main fighting. We lose people daily, but so far in the single digits. And we will go on losing people no matter what tactics we employ as long as we stay there while the Iraqis fight a civil war. We can, with our sick devotion to legalese, say it is not an occupation, but the Iraqis call it an occupation, and they don’t like it worth a toot.

When American politicians say if we leave, there will be chaos, that’s a joke. There is chaos there now. Another joke is that we can democratize the Middle East. Still another joke is the belief that we can deal with terrorism without solving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

If I thought the people in Washington were smart enough, I’d say we intended to destroy the country and leave it in the wreck it is. I don’t think they’re that smart, though. I think they really believed we could waltz in, topple Saddam Hussein and waltz out. That’s what happens when you let a bunch of pointy-headed intellectuals from universities and think tanks set policy. Only people who have worn muddy boots and heard the sounds of gunfire should be consulted on the issues of war and peace. Such people are darned scarce in Washington these days, even at the Pentagon.

The present policy sins daily against the Iraqi people, wastes the lives of American military people, adds to the financial burden of future generations and demonstrates to the world that we are a nation led by fools.

The Man Who Killed General Patton

The Man WhoKilled General Patton
From Non scrivetemi
3-3-7

http://www.rense.com/general75/manwho.htm

The Assassination Of US General George Patton

“No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. You win a war by making the other dumb bastard die for his country.”
- General George S. Patton

“I would rather have a German division in front of me than a French division behind me.”
- General George S. Patton

“Moral Courage is the most valuable and usually the most absent characteristic in men”.
- General George S. Patton

The murder of Patton is known for a fact, known for the very simple reason that an agent of the well-known OSS (Office Of Strategic Services), an American Military Spy named Douglas Bazata, A Jew of Lebanese origin, announced it in front of 450 invited guests, nearly all high-ranking ex-members of the OSS at the Hilton Hotel in Washington, DC the 25th of September, 1979.

Paul: ‘We’re getting ready to bomb Iran’

Despite a recent National Intelligence Estimate finding that Iran has halted its nuclear weapons program, libertarian-leaning GOP presidential contender Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) says there is still “a great possibility” of US military action against the country.

Appearing on MSBNC’s Morning Joe, Paul described what he characterized as a deteriorating situation on the ground in Iraq and Afghanistan, and said the US was preparing to kickstart yet another conflict — this time in Iran.

“It is getting worse over there,” he said. “Afghanistan is getting worse. Turkey is bombing Iraq. And Pakistan is blowing up and we’re getting ready to bomb Iran. A bunch of those neocons want to bomb Iran.”

Asked how the US could justify military action against Iran in the wake of the National Intelligence Estimate — which determined that the country hadn’t actively pursued a nuclear weapon since 2003 — Paul said he didn’t think the report would do much to deter a strike.

“I think it’s a great possibility. Read Seymour Hersh. He is the expert over there,” said Paul of the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist, who has previously reported that the US is preparing a preemptive strike against Iran.

“And the Iranian Revolutionary Guard has been declared a terrorist organization for the purpose of them being the targets rather than had the nuclear power plants,” Paul said. “So, wait and see… there are still quite a few neoconservatives that want to go after Iran under these unbelievable conditions.”

Concluded Paul, “That is the absurdity of the whole mess we have in there…stay out of entangling alliances, stay out of nation building. We ought to just get out of that place.”
