In the recovered footage posted here, citizen journalists get a chance to question Oliver North about REX 84 and COG, the supposed plan for the continuity of government in the wake of a terrorist attack or natural disaster. For daring to do so, these citizen journalists, bearing media credentials, were assaulted at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville by thugs who stole their camera memory cards, thus refusing to honor the First Amendment, as fascist thugs are wont to do. Questioning drug runner and convicted criminal Oliver North — not speculation, but documented historical fact — about REX 84 and and COG, members were told “this is not a press conference,” in other words, they had no right to ask North questions. Again, for daring to do so they were physically assaulted and robbed.

Chapter 10: The Costs of Lincoln’s War

2. The Death of Federalism

Although its significance is lost on most Americans, the destruction of states’ rights was probably the biggest cost of Lincoln’s war. It was important because the people, as citizens of their states, would no longer be sovereign. The federal government would become master rather than servant.

The doctrine of states’ rights is not just unique to the South. It is a universally acknowledged check on the arbitrary powers of the central state. But unfortunately, it no longer exists. It was destroyed by Lincoln’s war.

Words of War

By Bill Steigerwald
FrontPageMagazine.com | 5/29/2008

Victor Davis Hanson, a former classics professor, is a renowned conservative scholar of ancient history and military affairs who’s recently become a nationally syndicated columnist and blogger. The author of 17 books with titles like “A War Like No Other: How the Athenians and Spartans Fought the Peloponnesian War,” “An Autumn of War” and “Mexifornia: A State of Becoming,” he is the senior fellow in residence in classics and military history at the Hoover Institution on the Stanford University campus. Hanson, whose scholarship and interest in individual freedom recently earned him a 2008 Bradley Prize worth $250,000 from the Bradley Foundation, was on his farm near the central California town of Selma when I called to ask him about his favorite war books.

Q: What’s the greatest book on war ever written?

WASHINGTON’S CULTURE OF DECEPTION

NewsWithViews.com

A bomb exploded inside Washington, D.C., this week, and, no, it was not the work of a Middle Eastern terrorist. It was the work of former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan. He, perhaps more than anyone else, was the face of President Bush’s White House. He faithfully served President George W. Bush for close to a decade and served as Bush’s Press Secretary for some three years, resigning on April 19, 2006. He was also regarded as one of the most loyal and tight-lipped of the Bush insiders. However, his new book, “What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception” has exploded in the face of what history will probably regard as one of the most deceptive and manipulative Presidential administrations in American government. The Washington Post (and a host of other media) released a report regarding McClellan’s book this past Wednesday.

Media Crocodile Shock on Hill´s Assassination Talk

Posted: WorldNetDaily.comMay 29 , 2008

“We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California,” Hillary Clinton told the editorial board of The Sioux Falls Argus Leader last week in explaining her reason for staying in the presidential race.

This comment evoked predictable outrage from the Obama-happy media. “The politics of this nation is steeped enough in blood, Senator Clinton,” wailed MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann in higher dudgeon than usual. “You cannot and must not invoke that imagery! Anywhere! At any time!”

Unfortunately for an earlier black rival of the Clintons with presidential aspirations of his own, Commerce Secretary Ron Brown, the then Clinton-happy media refused to even inquire into his suspicious death.

Refitting the Presidency to the Constitution

by David W. Orr

The 44th president will assume office with powers greatly enlarged by his or her predecessor. Drawing on recent precedents, the next president could launch preemptive wars with only minor interference from Congress, ignore the ancient right of habeas corpus and imprison political enemies, spy on American citizens without serious legal restraint, use practically any federal agency for political purposes, manipulate the press in ways inconceivable prior to 2000, corrupt the federal justice system for political gain, destroy evidence in criminal cases, use the Justice Department to prosecute members of the opposing party, offer lucrative no-bid government contracts to friends, expand the creation of private security armies, use torture, create secret prisons, assassinate inconvenient foreign leaders, circumvent laws with signing statements, and a great deal more. Such things are now possible because the system of checks and balances carefully written into the Constitution and explained in great detail in the Federalist Papers were weakened as a result of historical circumstances of the 20th century, but systematically and with great forethought by the administration of George W. Bush.

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU DON’T LIKE ANY OF THESE CANDIDATES

Hillary Clinton. John McCain. Barack Obama. Those are our choices for the next president of the United States. Are you happy with that selection? If not, what is your alternative? As the saying goes, “The lesser of two evils is still evil.”

Beyond the presidential race we have congressional candidates, governors, state legislators, county commissioners, mayors, and city council candidates. Are you happy with whom the parties have chosen to offer for election? If not, what’s your alternative?

The real issues of the day are not even being addressed in the campaigns. The falling dollar that will render our money worthless; the rising gas prices that grab the last of our worthless money; the invasion of illegal aliens that are changing our society; the globalization of our economy; assaults on our private property; the loss of American jobs to foreign countries; and now the threat of food shortages.

These are real problems facing every American, yet it is apparently politically incorrect to discuss them. There are no questions concerning these issues during debates, on Sunday morning political talk shows, or anywhere in the news media in relationship to the candidates. It’s not there. Not to be discussed. The powers in charge are picking the issues – no matter how frustrated the electorate is.

Fourth Estate or Fourth Branch of Government?

Unreliable Sources

by Martin A. Lee & Norman Solomon

A Lyle Stuart Book, Carol Publishing Group, 1990

p103
Does the press function as an independent Fourth Estate or as a fourth branch of government? Are media adversaries of the State or its accomplice?

TV’s top journalists are part of the wealthy and influential elite, often socializing with people they’re supposed to be scrutinizing. At an awards banquet for the Radio & Television Correspondents Association during Reagan’s second term, Kathleen Sullivan (at the time with ABC) was photographed on the arm of then-Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger, while CBS Face the Nation host Lesley Stahl greeted the Republican Party’s national chairman Frank Fahrenkopf with a kiss. Vice President Bush serenaded the crowd with a speech and journalists got prizes ostensibly for good reporting.

Ron Paul speaks outside Republican convention

May 30, 2008

ROCHESTER, Minn. – Ron Paul continued his push for a speaking role at the Republican National Convention with an address Friday to supporters outside the Minnesota state convention.

Paul has continued his presidential bid despite Sen. John McCain’s status as the presumed nominee. With state GOP leaders refusing to allow him to speak inside the convention hall, Paul told about 400 supporters he was more concerned about spreading his libertarian message than preserving party unity.

“The campaign that is going on right now is the campaign for the freedom revolution, which is going to be going on for a very long time,” Paul told the crowd.

Pg. B7The Last Doughboy

By George F. Will

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. — Numbers come precisely from the agile mind and nimble tongue of Frank Buckles, who seems bemused to say that 4,734,991 Americans served in the military during America’s involvement in the First World War and that 4,734,990 are gone. He is feeling fine, thank you for asking.

The eyes of the last doughboy are still sharp enough for him to be a keen reader, and his voice is still deep and strong at age 107. He must have been a fine broth of a boy when, at 16, persistence paid off and he found, in Oklahoma City, an Army recruiter who believed, or pretended to, the fibs he had unavailingly told to Marine and Navy recruiters in Kansas about being 18. He grew up on a Missouri farm, not far from where two eminent generals were born — John “Black Jack” Pershing and Omar Bradley.

“Boys in the country,” says Buckles, “read the papers,” so he was eager to get into the fight over there. He was told that the quickest way was to train for casualty retrieval and ambulance operations. Soon he was headed for England aboard the passenger ship Carpathia, which was celebrated for having, five years earlier, rescued survivors from the Titanic.

How much anger is there among women about how Hillary Clinton has been treated during this campaign? Some of the nation’s leading female politicians will tell you: quite a lot.

“From the beginning, she’s been treated very badly,” says Therese Murray, the president of the Massachusetts Senate. “No woman would have run with Obama’s resume. She wouldn’t have been considered.” But Clinton has been “demonized by the press and the talking heads. How do you get away with that?”

WASHINGTON: The highest-ranking U.S. military officer has written an unusual open letter to all those in uniform, warning them to stay out of politics as the United States approaches a presidential election in which the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will be a central, and certainly divisive, issue.

 

“The U.S. military must remain apolitical at all times,” wrote Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. “It is and must always be a neutral instrument of the state, no matter which party holds sway.”

‘Lay off my wife.”

So says Barack Obama about his controversial spouse, Michelle.

The Democratic candidate for the presidential nomination has a grating tendency to dismiss any inconvenient fact as a “distraction” and to label every stinging criticism as “divisive.” So even if he didn’t have a husband’s natural desire to defend his wife, he’d still probably denounce criticism of Michelle as beyond the pale.

Tuesday, May 27, 2008

For weeks, pundits have speculated about why Hillary Clinton insists on remaining in the primary race when Barack Obama has all but clinched the Democratic presidential nomination. On Friday, Clinton answered that question. It appears she’s waiting in the wings for something dreadful to befall Obama.

When asked by the editorial board of South Dakota’s Sioux Falls Argus-Ledger why she is still running, Clinton replied, “My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don’t understand it.”

“Who the heck is Ron Paul?” asked many Americans over the course of the past year. The 70 year old, Texas Congressman’s name and face adorned web pages, blogs, email spams, posters and pamphlets throughout the nation. Out of nowhere, the Republican Presidential candidate appeared on television for the Primary debates giving blunt, hard hitting, no nonsense answers and lacerating jabs. He criticized fellow candidates for their foreign policy, corporate cronyism, and support of “big” government. His candid demeanor, especially in calling out the Administration for its failure in Iraq, helped win him over many independents, jaded Republicans, and “on the fence” liberals who found his voice a refreshing and legitimate “third option.” He dominates the Internet search engines, wins most of the online polls, maintains an overwhelming presence on Youtube, and recently scored a number one bestseller with his manifesto: “Ron Paul: The Revolution.” Through independent, grass roots activism, his campaign received over $6 million dollars making it the largest one-day fundraiser in U.S. political history.

Man of the Century

by Patrick J. Buchanan
by Patrick J. Buchanan


DIGG THIS

As the twentieth century ended, a debate ensued over who had been its greatest man. The Weekly Standard nominee was Churchill. Not only was he Man of the Century, said scholar Harry Jaffa, he was the Man of Many Centuries. To Kissinger he was “the quintessential hero.” A BBC poll of a million people in 2002 found that Britons considered Churchill the “greatest Briton of all time.”

FINEST HOUR

What makes Churchill the Man of the Century? Comes the reply: He was the indispensable man who saved Western civilization. Without Churchill, Britain might have accepted an armistice or sued for peace in 1940. The war in the west would have been over. Hitler, victorious, would have turned on Russia and crushed her, and the world would have been at his feet. By standing alone from June 1940 to June 1941, the British bulldog held on until Hitler committed his fatal blunders – invading the Soviet Union and declaring war on the United States.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Jim in St. Joe, Michigan, welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.

CALLER: Thanks, Rush, for taking my call. I’ve been listening to you for the last two days with a lot of frustration about the Republican Party. And it sounds that you may have finally conceded that the Republican Party is not going to be the venue to advance conservative ideas, and so I know Obama is the messiah, but, Rush, conservatives are looking for a Moses, a Moses who will go to the Republican Party and say, “Let my people go.” Are you ready to do that?

RUSH: No.

CALLER: Why?

RUSH: I don’t believe in third-party candidacies. They don’t work; they’re not going to work; that’s not the way to do this. I can give you a couple of scenarios. Here’s just one. The liberal Republicans have taken over the party. They have nominated somebody that goes out and says things like they say, gets along with Democrats, they’re all one big happy family so all the liberal Republicans in New York and California can get along with all the liberal Democrats in New York and California, our candidate gets beat by 150 electoral votes, anywhere from 50 to 150. We have a 70-seat deficit in the House of Representatives, perhaps a ten- to 12-seat deficit in the Senate, and at that point we start rebuilding the Republican Party because those who have taken over and have decided this is the way to win get shellacked and lose big time. Now, this is going to end up being a major rebuilding effort. You go back and study Reagan in 1976 and Reagan’s platform fight. I love studying Ronald Reagan histoire. In ’76 he was the most popular, but Gerald Ford got the nod because he’s sitting vice president. Gerald Ford got the nod at the convention, but Reagan, at the platform fight, put in every conservative plank he could squeeze in there, he hardly ever mentioned Gerald Ford’s name.

I recently bought The Complex, by Nick Turse. It purports to deal with the militarization of American society, its economy, education, and so on. I can think of no more important topic. The militarization is happening. Huge sums go for weapons we don’t need to fight enemies we don’t have. Much of this waste is hidden in plain sight: What the press ignores doesn’t exist. The militarization now segues into the establishment of a full-blown national-security state, with further huge sums going to Homeland Security et al. The subject is ripe for a grown-up book.

Let me give you this example. It’s an email I received a few days ago regarding a January 7, 2005, column I wrote titled, President Bush supporting global communist domination:

“That is the most absurd statement I have ever heard and you fail to detail just how this is transpiring. Either you are outright ignorant or you are joking. Communism is the exact opposite of what Georgie boy stands for. He is a capitalist and has tried to kill suspected terrorist communist Hugo Chavez. How in hell do you equate Bush with communism?

IMMIGRATION KILLED MIAMI, FLORIDA: ONE WOMAN’S STORY

Thirty years ago, Miami, Florida flourished as an All-American city. Mothers strolled along palm-shaded sidewalks while tourists basked on beaches filled with white sands and sunshine. Americans spoke English and communities sported Old Glory in their yards while the Dolphins reigned as one of the NFL’s finest teams.

Today, after the Cuban refugee invasion, drug gangs and unending illegal immigration, Miami may as well be Dakar, Senegal the rectum of the world.

The following interview gives you an idea not only what happened in Miami, but what every city in the United States faces with our third world immigration invasion sponsored by our U.S. Congress.

“I used to live in Miami,” Mary Johnson said. “It was a beautiful, sunny, clean little town, with soft trade winds, and golden shell beaches lapped by warm, gentle waves. When I was a little girl, the downtown was safe enough for my grandmother to comfortably take me there on the city bus to shop, be treated to a chocolate soda and catch a Haley Mills movie.

America squirms toward an unprecedented juncture in 2008 with the coming change of leadership in the White House. As citizens, our civilization cannot survive another presidency led by reaction, retort or inept responses. We cannot continue without a “National Strategic Plan” for our future.

We must raise our voices toward a sustainable future by engaging our next president with a mandate for creating a new energy source. We demand a national energy policy, conservation policy, viable immigration-population policy and water usage policy—before harsh realities pound down around our ears.

The “Age of Oil” as our energy slave–vanishes in the rearview mirrors at the astounding global rate of 84 million barrels burned 24/7, month in and month out, year in and year out. How many barrels does that equal? According to Dr. John Tanton, thesocialcontract.com, one barrel measures 20 inches in diameter. If you place 84 million barrels side by side—they reach around the world at the equator some 25,000 miles. Each day, we light them on fire and burn them up. We repeat that burning every single day of the year! Little wonder historians sharpen their quills with the realization that gasoline cannot last forever.

WEIGHT LOSS HEALTH FREEDOM UNDER SERIOUS ATTACK

May 30, 2008 Leave a comment

 By Byron J. Richards, CCN

May 29, 2008
NewsWithViews.com

The brotherhood of Big Pharma’s weight loss cartel is taking direct aim at your health freedom and natural options to help you lose weight. They have submitted a petition to the FDA requesting that all claims that dietary supplements promote, assist, or otherwise help in weight loss are disease claims. The goal is to eliminate competition for dietician services, drugs, and surgery in the multi-billion dollar weight loss industry. It is a blatant attack on health freedom and free commerce – a significant threat that the Big Pharma-friendly FDA is sure to seriously consider.

Immediate consumer action is needed. Steps to take are provided at the end of this article. Defeating this Big Pharma proposal will require an all out grassroots consumer effort. Various health freedom organizations such as the National Health Federation and Citizens for Health have already taken the lead in this effort.

This specific attack is part of an overall campaign in which the FDA plays a major negative role, seeking to reduce your access to dietary supplements. The FDA is actively participating on an international basis (CODEX) and regional basis (FDA Trilateral Cooperation Charter/SPP/North American Union) to circumvent existing U.S. laws (DSHEA) so as to undermine your access to natural health options. In the face of this current attack even the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), who often comes down on the wrong side of regional and international health freedom issues, has stated that it will vigorously defend the dietary supplement industry’s legal right to make factual weight loss claims.

VOYAGE OF THE DAMNED

The deluge of email from my last column was encouraging because it demonstrates that Americans are “getting it,” like I did 18 years ago. A small number are still in denial. A sincere gentleman sent email and wrote that I should not use the word communism because among other things, it turns off liberals:

“I was going to forward this latest article of yours, but realized there’s going to be huge problem amongst the “liberals” that I know who will see the word “Communist” in your article and immediately shut down and reject everything else you’re trying to say…turn off liberals who are for the most part well-meaning, caring people who are only sticking up for the little guy against what they perceive as the primary enemy, which is capitalism. I should know about how liberals think – I’ve been one almost all my life, and I continue to bristle somewhat whenever I see the word “Communist” bandied about. I’m just old enough to have some recollection of the McCarthy era, and even as a little kid felt revulsion at the notion of looking for a Communist under every bed. I’ve always believed in free speech, and believe that if Communist ideas are so bad, they will die a natural death in the free-market of ideas. There shouldn’t be any need to deliberately suppress Communist ideology, or haul people off to a prison just for their beliefs, however much I might disagree with those beliefs.

“I still try to reach my liberal friends though, because we’re all going to lose if we continue to divide ourselves, especially over something silly like semantics….I just finished reading Gary Allen’s excellent book, None Done Call It Conspiracy, that addresses these issues. I’m also familiar with Anthony Sutton’s work along these lines. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I prefer to use the word globalist rather than Communist, so as to not automatically alienate the libs.”

Of course, that’s just what the communists would like to see! Deception is their expertise. Besides, the communists don’t care what label is currently in vogue, only that ‘The Program’ is implemented. Communism isn’t silly semantics. Communism is a brutal form of totalitarian government. Just ask the poor souls who live in Communist Red China and North Korea. Globalist is such a benign word, most people snooze when they hear it. We have to identify our enemies and get Americans to understand how they are being pitted against each other, all to achieve the same goal. The destroyers are taking bold steps these days and aren’t even trying to hide their intentions anymore:

California Schemin‘ – Next on school agenda: Teaching communism

“A new plan by a California lawmaker would allow schools to be used to promote the overthrow of the U.S. government, and let teachers in public district classrooms “inculcate in the mind of any pupil a preference for communism,” according to a traditional values advocacy organization. “Just when we thought the indoctrination in California’s public schools couldn’t get any worse, state lawmakers introduce bills that will further brainwash innocent children,” said a statement from Capitol Resource Institute, a traditional values and family advocacy organization based in California.

“This bill would also strike the law that a public school or community college employee may be fired if he or she is a member of the Communist Party,” the group said. Worse yet, the group said, “the bill would also strike the law that prohibits a teacher giving instruction in a school or on public school property from teaching communism with the intent to indoctrinate or to inculcate in the mind of any pupil a preference for communism,” CRI said.”

Who introduced this dangerous legislation? Democrats in the California State Legislature. Don’t forget these two major goals of the Communist Party listed in the Congressional Record: 12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party. 13. Do away with all loyalty oaths. You can see how many have been accomplished here (scroll down about half way for the list).

On a recent radio show, a caller asked me what difference did it make if the Communist Party USA endorses Al Gore(bechev), John Kerry and is looking to Barack Obama as their favorite because they’re such a minority in this country? (Communist dictator Fidel Castro just endorsed Obama.) Why? Because communists recognize that Obama will further the goals of the Communist Party. (So will Marxist Hillary Clinton should she end up the annointed one for the Democrat party.) Obama is loved by Reds: Communist band opens for Obama “A hip rock band that features the Soviet national anthem and communist-inspired lyrics was on stage to open for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama at his record-breaking Portland, Ore., rally that attracted 75,000.”

One has to wonder who in the Democrat Party scheduled that band and why hasn’t Obama denounced such an anti-American display. Are communists a minority in this country?

Americans committing national suicide. “Kevin Kornbuckle is Oregon’s only duly elected Communist; he ran as a Democrat and “came out” after he was elected. In March, 1996, this Communist, after coming under attack by other city council members stated: “I’d simply point out that Communists in the U.S. are fighting for health care, housing and jobs as a human right. I’m proud to be a Communist.” Mail Tribune, Medford, Oregon, March 4, 1996.”

How many other Communists have been elected as Democrats or Republicans who haven’t come out of the closet yet, but vote for new world order programs and totalitarian legislation? Recall from my last column I directed readers to a congressional record document which stated 30 U.S. Senators and 100 members of the House had endorsed the ‘Declaration of Interdependence (pushed by Bill Clinton) endorsing a one world government. How many Americans watched Maxine Waters [D-CA] who has been on the public payroll for decades make this slip during hearings on the oil companies?

Congresswoman threatens to nationalize oil industry. “Waters responded, in part, “And guess what this liberal would be all about. This liberal will be about socializing … uh, um. …” The congresswoman paused to collect her thoughts. “Would be about, basically, taking over, and the government running all of your companies. …”

May I remind people that while the greenies make a lot of noise and environmental advocacy groups lobby Congress – it is YOUR member of Congress (and mine) that vote on all energy bills. Not Greenpeace, the Sierra Club or Greens Against Drilling in ANWR. Only members of Congress vote for these bills. Congress caused this mess and now, as usual, they are trying to shift the blame else where. Same old players. Same old hypocrites. I am not letting the oil companies off the hook because they also buy the favors of Congress. McCain has emphatically stated that if he’s president, there will never be drilling in ANWR. Easy for him to say. When you’re worth $40 million bux, $3.85 a gallon gas doesn’t mean much.

“Mad Max” Waters is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) which I pointed out in my Blind Loyalty booklet back in 1996 and in columns. More than 50 Democrats who sit in the U.S. House of Representatives belong to this organization which seeks to over throw our legitimate form of government. The Republicans took the biggest steps since the Revolutionary War in destroying the Constitution and Bill of Rights while they held power. The Democrats have done nothing to reverse any of it.

Tens of millions of Americans regardless of their label (conservative, liberal, independent), support the programs which are specifically defined by the International Communist Party (‘The Program’). Tens of millions of Americans support politicians at all levels of government who are working towards world government. If you asked them what form of government we have, 99999% of them will reply a democracy. A lie, but this is what the government indoctrination centers pump into the heads of school children and the media reinforces it with their electronic and print propaganda. If Republicans claim to be such ardent supporters of the U.S. Constitution, why did they support the lawlessness under the Clinton Administration and with even more fervor, the lawlessness of the Bush Administration?

Communist take over succeeds in a Godless nation. In order to achieve that goal, Christianity must be eradicated. Communist take over succeeds when a nation’s moral fabric becomes decadent and perverted beyond description. Go look at those communist goals again. This is the real deal, not silly semantics. I have explained the endless “wars of liberation” and how the American people have been manipulated into supporting them in several columns:

Will Americans sacrifice more of their own for the bankers?
Another week in looney land
The Praetorian Guard

I have covered other aspects of destroying your rights that are critical to The Program, i.e., forced mental health screening:

“There is an underlying agenda behind Bush’s so-called ‘New Freedom Commission on Mental Health’ to “identify policies that could be implemented by Federal, State and local governments to promote successful community integration for adults with a serious mental illness and children with a serious emotional disturbance.” This forced mental health screening will eventually be extended to adults – an exact replica of Communist Russia, straight from the Communist Manual of Instruction of Psychological Warfare. In the summary section of this “New Freedom” Commission on Mental Health, the summary states, “The State plan will include consumers and families and will create a new partnership among the Federal, State and local governments.”

The destroyers use other words defining a philosophy to further the agenda of communism. Communitarian being the one now so popular among academics and shoved down the throat of young college students. Those who are following domestic and world events are seeing this massive attack on corporate America as the big bad guy on the block. Yes, these former American companies have sold out the American worker and joined the other evil doers to establish world government. However, there is a huge point being missed here and I would like to quote the brilliant, G. Edward Griffin:

“In summary: Governments and corporations intrinsically are neither good nor evil. What makes them so is the character of the people who direct them. If laws did not grant them personal immunity from their acts, the likelihood of corruption and crime in governments and corporations would be no greater than found in any other segment of society.” I encourage you to read the full column here. I have said it before: These corporations are mostly publicly traded which means a huge percentage of the stockholders are Americans who have the power to change their policies. Hold them accountable. We the people also have the big stick: our wallets. Starve your enemy, don’t fund them. Invest in America first.

If we as Americans can commit as a unified nation to restoring this country to a constitutional republic, we will crush this massive force arrayed against us to destroy all we hold dear. That means discarding labels, abandoning blind party loyalty, understanding true constitutional government and go on the offensive through activism. Those who choose to ignore the truth will be sailing on a voyage of the damned.

Please don’t forget retired USAF Brigadier General Ben Partin will be on the Jeff Rense Radio show tonight. Please see here for times and to receive the broadcast. Ben is going to discuss this in great length and he is an expert Again, if you just can’t listen to the show, you can watch Ben explain OKC, WACO and world communism for free. I put on a sold out event at the Santa Clara Convention Center in June, 1998; Ben was a featured speaker. He was 72 years old then; a remarkable man who has never been given the credit due him for all his work in exposing the lies and ‘The Program’ to destroy this republic.

The deluge of email from my last column was encouraging because it demonstrates that Americans are “getting it,” like I did 18 years ago. A small number are still in denial. A sincere gentleman sent email and wrote that I should not use the word communism because among other things, it turns off liberals:

“I was going to forward this latest article of yours, but realized there’s going to be huge problem amongst the “liberals” that I know who will see the word “Communist” in your article and immediately shut down and reject everything else you’re trying to say…turn off liberals who are for the most part well-meaning, caring people who are only sticking up for the little guy against what they perceive as the primary enemy, which is capitalism. I should know about how liberals think – I’ve been one almost all my life, and I continue to bristle somewhat whenever I see the word “Communist” bandied about. I’m just old enough to have some recollection of the McCarthy era, and even as a little kid felt revulsion at the notion of looking for a Communist under every bed. I’ve always believed in free speech, and believe that if Communist ideas are so bad, they will die a natural death in the free-market of ideas. There shouldn’t be any need to deliberately suppress Communist ideology, or haul people off to a prison just for their beliefs, however much I might disagree with those beliefs.

Every time the Love Priestess and I see the FLDS people on the news, we cannot help but shudder. Maybe scripture is the reason. But one need not be a Bible scholar to know that these folks are creepy crawly. That is the reflex polygamy produces, heightened by the stilted, halting way they answer questions. The utter weirdness of their practice apparently infuses everything they do.

But, guess what? However weird they are, and whatever my wife and I think about it, is totally irrelevant. These are the united (sic) States. Did you remember? This is where you can be as weird as you like. This is where the Constitution guarantees that right. Of course, I do not expect Members of Congress to know that, but you do.

WHY ALL THE SECRECY ABOUT FLIGHT 1544?

May 30, 2008 Leave a comment

 By Dr. Laurie Roth
May 30, 2008

NewsWithViews.com

Monday you may have not even heard that Flight 1544 flying from Houston to Cleveland was nearly hit by what numerous witnesses on the plane described as a cylinder shaped object with a long plume of thick smoke pouring out its back. Many said it flew rapidly past the front of the plane, nearly missing it. The plane was flying at an altitude of 5,000 feet and 11 miles east of Bush Intercontinental Airport. The Pilot radioed to the control tower that the object was “missile-like with a thick contrail” traveling at a high rate of speed.

Media outlets and the FAA are suggesting that this object seen by 148 passengers was just a model rocket. Doug Hagman, Director of Northeast Intelligence Network told me this week that he was called by one of the passengers who told him that the story being circulated by local and other media as well as the FAA story was not correct. It was no “toy” rocket and that they had all been told to say nothing to the media. Doug also talked with the lady passenger’s husband. Both were terrified about giving their names but even more terrified about even flying again.

When the above passenger tried to call a few local media sources to report what she saw, they all told her that it was no story and it was known already that it was just an innocent toy that shot by. I guess dumb old me just wonders why if it was just a junior high model rocket gone amiss, everyone was ordered to be quiet and to say nothing to anyone. Witnesses reported a fast moving, missile like object with a heavy smoke plume. I suppose there is always the outside reality that it could be a model rocket but sources told me it was highly unlikely that a toy rocket would move at such a fast speed with such a thick and huge smoke plume trailing behind it.

US/BP Terror Drills

Capt. Eric H. May
Military Analysis

HOUSTON, May 27 Military and police forces from across the U.S. are conducting SWAT-style terror drills in BP’s Texas City refinery, the nation’s deadliest and dirtiest industrial site. The facility has exploded with alarming frequency in recent years, including a Mar. 23, 2005 explosion that killed 15 workers.
The terror drills, which involve explosives, began Memorial Day, and will continue until Sunday, June 1. Extra security will be on hand to keep residents away. BP security supervisor Ben Wier will be present, along with other BP personnel.
Despite official assurances from BP and terror drill participants, many area residents are alarmed.
“There have been too many unexplained things that BP,” an anonymous local said, “and since the company owns this town it gets the paper and police to shut up about anything it wants.”
He pointed out that the local Internet researchers correctly predicted BP Texas City explosions on Mar. 30, 2004 and Jul. 28, 2005.
Most alarmingly, the same researchers predicted a Jan. 31, 2006 Bush administration attempt to nuke the small city in Representative Ron Paul’s 14th Congressional District. The next day, on Feb. 1, a federal nuke team mysteriously appeared in force on the beaches just south of town. Galveston County Daily News reporter TJ Aulds wrote a bizarre story about it, “Nuclear attack warning story dismissed,”
http://news.galvestondailynews.com/story.lasso?ewcd=f9c4071e30759dda.
In it, he parroted official assurances that the secretive nuke team was nothing to worry about.
Several BP employees have contacted The Lone Star Iconoclast in the last year, and based on their inside information about terror drills last fall, The Iconoclast issued an Oct. 18, 2007 Southeast Texas “false flag alert.” Within three hours of its publication, the Southeast Texas Dow Chemical pipeline exploded and sent per barrel oil prices to record highs.

GI benefits boost at issue

By Christina Bellantoni, The Washington Times

Sen. Jim Webb — already being mentioned as a potential vice presidential pick for the Democrats — yesterday took a swipe at presumptive Republican nominee Sen. John McCain for opposing his 21st Century GI Bill of Rights.

Mr. Webb, Virginia Democrat and chief author of the new bill that provides better education benefits for the nation’s military veterans, warned President Bush against vetoing the measure and said Mr. McCain should “sit down and take a look more carefully” at the bill.

Criticisms Emerge Of V-22 Osprey

 

CNN Newsroom, 10:00 AM

TONY HARRIS: The Marines V-22 Osprey is an odd bird, huge propellers and a broad body, but has it proven itself?

Here’s CNN’s Jamie McIntyre.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE) JAMIE MCINTYRE: When the V-22 Osprey flies unescorted, a lone tail gunner is its sole protector, but while not bristling with guns, the revolutionary heliplane is bursting with speed, and that’s its best defense argues the commander of the first V-22 squadron to see combat in Iraq.

LT. COL. PAUL ROCK, V-22 SQUADRON CMDR.: It’s harder to hit a rabbit when he’s running, you know, and we’re just moving faster and much more maneuverable airplane, difficult to engage.

MCINTYRE: The V-22’s original design included a! front-mounted gun that was dropped to save on weight. That was after former Marine Corps Commandant Jim Jones retired.

Does it bother you there’s no nose gun?

GEN. JAMES JONES (RET.), FORMER MARINE CORPS COMMANDANT: No, I would prefer that, but I may be just kind of traditional Marine that an airplane going into a hot zone that can’t fire, you know, to the front.

PART ONE: ALL VOTERS, GENDER, AND RACE

Ever since the media declared that Barack Obama was “inevitable” after February 19th, based on a two week period when the an unprepared Hillary Clinton campaign suffered “10 straight losses”, rank and file Democratic voters have been sending a message. Rather than rally ‘round the “inevitable nominee” that message has been a consistent, loud, and clear message to the Democratic Party – DO NOT WANT.

In nearly every demographic category since February 19, Clinton percentage of the vote has risen, while Obama’s has fallen. This includes Obama’s supposed “strong” demographic categories such as voters with college degrees post-graduate degrees and voters whose income is above the national median. And Clinton beat Obama in the primaries in March, April and May in most of the major categories.

The businessman was meeting with clients for lunch at Mimi’s Café when he noticed the woman. Sitting a few tables over with her 4-year-old boy, she seemed groggy — yet she was drinking a mimosa.

It got worse. The woman ordered a glass of white wine, then another. She was so out of it, the businessman would later write in a statement to police, that she looked ready to fall asleep at the table.

When the woman paid her bill and left the restaurant, the businessman was right behind her, cell phone in hand. When she ran a stop sign in the parking lot, he called the police.

Weather warfare
Beware the US military’s experiments with climatic warfare, says Michel Chossudovsky

 

 

Date:22/05/2008

 

 

 

Author:Michel Chossudovsky

 

 

 

 

Rarely acknowledged in the debate on global climate change, the world’s weather can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated electromagnetic weapons. Both the US and Russia have developed capabilities to manipulate the climate for military use. 

Environmental modification techniques have been applied by the US military for more than half a century. US mathematician John von Neumann, in liaison with the US Department of Defense, started his research on weather modification in the late 1940s at the height of the Cold War and foresaw ‘forms of climatic warfare as yet unimagined’.

This essay was originally published in the July-August 1980 issue of Cadre, the internal bulletin of the Radical Caucus of the Libertarian Party. This version leaves out the names of players who are no longer relevant to Rothbard’s main point.

In the spring of 1979, a fateful – and fatal – shift took place in the direction and strategic vision of our leading libertarian institutions: foundations, youth movements, journals, etc. The shift was a classic leap into opportunist betrayal of our fundamental principles.

Just recently I wrote a piece about Keith John Sampson, a college student who was charged with “racial harassment” for reading an anti-Ku Klux Klan book. Not surprisingly, the article evoked a great response, including emails from those with their own stories to tell about persecution inspired by what I will call caucaphobia. A couple of these accounts are so compelling – compared to one even Sampson’s problems pale – that I’ve decided to publish them in this piece (both readers allowed me to use their names; their correspondence has been edited for punctuation, grammar and style). These are the stories the mainstream media won’t tell, straight from the front lines of the culture war. They give voice to a persecution whose name most dare not utter.

“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” —Hamlet, Act I, Scene 5

Alas, Asia!

“Two of the most repressive regimes on the planet —China and Burma—struggle to respond to devastating disasters: the Sichuan earthquake and Cyclone Nargis. In both cases, the disasters have exposed grave political weaknesses within the regimes—and both crises have the potential to ignite levels of public rage that would be difficult to control.” —Naomi Klein, The Nation., May 15, 2008, “Regime-Quakes in China and Burma,”
http://www.thenation.com/doc/20080602/klein

On Mayday, the Bush administration began its National Level Exercise 2-08, in which it simulated a category four storm. On the same day Cyclone Nargis, supposed to be heading for India, abruptly became a category-four storm and turned east for Myanmar (Burma). It made landfall on May 2, and wreaked such damage that it has been rated the worst natural disaster in the nation’s history. The Myanmar government, distrustful of the Bush administration, refused relief efforts—until international reports began to suggest that another freak storm was going to hit the country. The ruling junta soon thereafter agreed to be “assisted”—and the next storm never materialized.

It’s rather humorous to read and hear the outrage by pundits and politicos against the assassination comments by Hillary Clinton.  Keith Olbermann seems to be leading the way in this effort.  He calls Clinton to task for invoking “the nightmare of political assassination” and rails about the “inappropriateness” of using such a word.  After listing past politicians killed or injured while in office or while campaigning, he sums ups his outrage with this….
