(RON PAUL SETS US ALL STRAIGHT AS TO WHAT CONSERVATIVE REALLY MEANS!) ~ Ron Paul Restores Definition of Conservative in Florida Debate

January 24, 2012 6 comments

Each of these three candidates have used a preponderance of their time in the last two debates to hammer away at each other’s claim to be the true conservative choice in the 2012 election. But on Monday night, something strange and wonderful happened.

http://oi43.tinypic.com/21d4p52.jpg

In a rare exception to the mainstream media’s blackout rule against Ron Paul, the Texas congressman was invited to answer a question about which candidate was truly conservative. And this is what he said:

“I think the problem is the way we are defining what conservative means. Conservative means we have smaller government and more liberty. And yet, if you ask what have we [the Republican Party] done, I think we’ve lost our way completely. Our rhetoric is still pretty good, but when we get in charge we expand the government… So if it means limited government, you have to ask the basic question: ‘What should the role of government be?’ “

“The Founders asked that question, had a revolution and wrote a constitution. And they said the role of government ought to be to protect liberty. It’s not to be a welfare state and it’s not to be the policemen of the world. How can you be ‘conservative’ and cut food stamps, but you won’t cut spending overseas? There’s not a nickel or a penny that anybody will cut on the ‘conservative’ side on overseas spending. We don’t have the money – and they are willing to start world wars.”

REPUBLICAN PARTY, RED FROM THE START

by Alan Stang
February 1, 2008
NewsWithViews.com

Many patriots these days lament that the Republican Party has “lost its way” and “gone wrong.” It has “diverged” from the fiscally responsible, small government philosophy of Republican heroes like Robert Taft whom Eisenhower’s handlers finagled out of the nomination for President in 1952. We are told that is why today’s Republican Establishment hates Dr. Ron Paul with such a passion; that they hate him because, like Taft, he is the quintessential Republican. Patriots who say that are mistaken, of course. The reason the Republican Establishment hates Dr. Paul is precisely that he is not a traditional, mainstream Republican, that his platform of freedom is an aberration. The Republican Party didn’t “go wrong,” didn’t “go left.”

The White House has a curse upon it. It is real. It is powerful. It will not go away until a particular act takes place.

The curse came upon the White when President George W. Bush placed the Koran with great aplomb in the White House library.

For Justices, State of the Union Can Be a Trial

For Justices, State of the Union Can Be a TrialNY Times ^ | January 24, 2012 | ADAM LIPTAKPosted on Tuesday, January 24, 2012 10:03:37 PM by SteelfishFor Justices, State of the Union Can Be a Trial By ADAM LIPTAK January 23, 2012WASHINGTON — Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. has called the State of the Union address, which is being delivered Tuesday night, “a political pep rally.” For Justice Antonin Scalia, it is “a juvenile spectacle.” MultimediaJustice Clarence Thomas said he could not abide “the catcalls, the whooping and hollering and under-the-breath comments.” Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. called the addresses “very political events” and “very awkward,” adding, “We have to sit there like the proverbial potted plant most of the time.”That particular potted plant spoke, sort of, at the 2010 State of the Union address, mouthing “not true” after President Obama took a shot at a six-day-old Supreme Court decision called Citizens United. Mr. Obama said the decision had “reversed a century of law” and would “open the floodgates for special interests, including foreign corporations, to spend without limit in our elections.”On substance, Justice Alito probably had the better of the exchange: the law the decision partly struck down was enacted in 2002, and the older of the two precedents it reversed was from 1990. And the majority went out of its way to say it was not deciding “whether the government has a compelling interest in preventing foreign individuals or associations from influencing our nation’s political process.”

Iran preparing now for Armageddon

January 24, 2012 2 comments

By Reza Kahlili

Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has held several secret meetings with his economic and military advisers in recent days to prepare for the possibility of war with the United States.

Sources report the preparations are to include the execution of those Iranians who oppose the regime.

Khamenei has been heard to say that the coming of the last Islamic Messiah, the Shiites’ 12th Imam Mahdi, is near and that specific actions need to be taken to protect the Islamic regime for upcoming events.

Mahdi, according to Shiite belief, will reappear at the time of Armageddon.

Minuteman PAC warns of imperial presidency…

January 24, 2012 2 comments

An influential Minuteman PAC is weighing in on the argument over Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president, with a call for concerned citizens across the country to flood their state secretaries of state offices with requests that Obama be removed from the 2012 ballot.

There have been dozens of leaders, politicians and personalities who have expressed concern that Obama likely does not meet the constitutional requirement of being a “natural born citizen” to be president.

The Founders likely understood that to mean the offspring of two citizen parents and an 1875 Supreme Court decision suggested the same. But Obama, by his own admission, could not qualify under those circumstances because his father never was an American.

In a new statement released by the Minuteman Pac, officials there said, “Obama needs every vote he can get in 2012 – if we can get just one state to remove his name from its ballot, he does not stand a chance.

“To do this, though, we need tens of thousands of messages overwhelming the offices of every single secretary of state, since they are the ones who are ultimately responsible for determining who qualifies to be on the ballot – and, of course, who doesn’t,” the organization’s statement said.

Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich each claim to be the true conservative choice in 2012. But Congressman Ron Paul teaches them what “conservative” really means.

On Monday, four candidates stood before a sedated audience in the Florida GOP Debate, each man competing for the soul of the Republican Party. With few exceptions, the tactic of most modern GOP nominees has been to move to the left during the general election season to win the support of moderates and independents. However, the candidate must first secure his own party’s nomination by moving to the right and marketing himself as a “conservative”.

On the far left of the stage was former Pennsylvania senator, Rick Santorum. Naturally, Santorum calls himself a true conservative. But is Rick Santorum a conservative?

While serving in the US Senate, Santorum voted in favor of appropriations bills to spend hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars on AIDS research in Africa, to provide education to children in third world countries, to finance the government of Sudan, and to increase domestic welfare spending on food stamp programs. He voted five times to raise the debt ceiling, rather than to fight to balance the federal budget. He voted to double the size of the Department of Education by strongly supporting No Child Left Behind legislation and, worse, was a vocal proponent of Medicaid Part D – one of the biggest hikes in entitlement spending in US history. “Conservative” is hardly the word that describes Rick Santorum.

On stage, next to Santorum, stood former Massachusetts governor, Mitt Romney. Clearly, Romney is the Republican establishment’s choice for 2012. Like his RINO predecessors (McCain, Bush, Dole, Bush Sr.), Romney’s struggle has been to convince the party base that, if entrusted with the nomination, he will not spring back to the far left. So far, it has been no easy task.

Southern Democrats: Gone with the Wind…

January 24, 2012 1 comment

The story of the South is one for the ages. It is the story of elegance and tradition trampled upon by ‘progress.’ It is the story of an agricultural economy uprooted by northern industrialism. It is the story of a cultural and political rollercoaster. For our purposes, I will focus on the latter – the political evolution of the Southern electorate.

Southern culture, at its core, has always been ruled by conservative instincts. Historian Russell Kirk documents the height of the conservative intellectual experience in one chapter of The Conservative Mind. Kirk demonstrates the vibrant conservative attitudes held by southern culture through the dynamic personalities of John Randolph and John C. Calhoun –“the Virginian orator and the Carolinian prophet” (pg. 159).

It was John Randolph who famously declared, “I am an aristocrat: I love liberty, I hate equality” at the 1829 Virginia Constitutional Convention (130). For this statement, Randolph can be considered a visionary. He foresaw, even in the days of the early republic, that people were too easily swayed into socialist schemes of social leveling. He believed that government was quickly becoming an instrument of the Left to manufacture economic and social “equality” at the expense of others’ political liberty.

For this reason, he was perhaps the fiercest opponent of positive law which he thought would lead to democratic despotism. Randolph opposed using government as a tool to create an impossible utopian society. In fact, Randolph believed that it would be perfectly fine if government went ten years without writing a new law (137). He espoused the idea that prescriptive right, common law, and custom should be enough to govern the daily affairs of men. Randolph’s esteem for the individual, his philosophy of limited government, and his traditional values make him a hero to southern patriots.

Likewise, John C. Calhoun was a great conservative thinker. Calhoun’s area of expertise was defending states’ rights. And while Calhoun (and many other conservatives) errantly used this sound principle as justification for slavery, the concept itself is worthy of attention and should not be carelessly neglected. The fight for states’ rights went far beyond the issue of slavery and extended to the realm of economic oppression by northern industrialists. The “Tariff of Abominations” imposed by a northern majority in Congress in 1824 clearly sought to have the South subsidize northern industry. Calhoun and other southern conservatives could not stand for this. While he first dabbled in theories of nullification to circumvent the tariff (which he later renounced as unconstitutional “nonsense”), Calhoun later came to write A Disquisition on Government, a comprehensive political discourse on the nature of government in which he spends ample time defending the political rights of minorities. Calhoun’s contribution to conservative thought is incalculable, and his dedication to states’ rights endures to this day.

Yet, as the novel and the movie suggest, the Fall of the Old South and all its intellectual and cultural grandeur came in the blink of an eye – Gone with the wind. “Grant and Sherman ground their valor into powder, Emancipation and Reconstruction demolished the loose structure of their old society, economic subjugation crushed them into the productive machine of modern times. No political philosophy has had a briefer span of triumph than that accorded Randolph’s and Calhoun’s,” Kirk says (160).

Since the Civil War, the South has been struggling to redefine its identity. They never fully recovered economically and thus, they were sent on a philosophical wild goose chase. Poor farmers were caught up in populist waves of discontent dabbled with progressive notions of wealth redistribution in the late 1800’s.

LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Joint military training exercises will be held evenings in downtown Los Angeles through Thursday, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The LAPD will be providing support for the exercises, which will also be held in other portions of the greater Los Angeles area, police said.

Training sites “have been carefully selected to ensure the event does not negatively impact the citizens of Los Angeles and their daily routine,” a department official said.

The training, which a department official said would involve helicopters, has been coordinated with local authorities and owners of the training sites, police said.

Police said safety precautions have been taken to prevent risk to the general public and military personnel involved.

The exercises are closed to the public, police said.

The exercises are designed to ensure the military’s ability to operate in urban environments, prepare forces for upcoming overseas deployments, and meet mandatory training certification requirements, police said.

Fox Attempts to Discredit Ron Paul with Oklahoma Inside Job Newsletter okcity1On the heels of Ron Paul’s South Carolina promise to continue forward with his quest to gain the Republican nomination and the presidency, Fox News has dredged up an yet another newsletter attributed to him in an effort to sabotage the Paul campaign.

“Full of racist, anti-Semitic, and homophobic statements, not to mention a variety of quack science and conspiracy theories, the newsletters have once again become an issue as Paul seeks to stay in the Republican presidential primary for the long haul,” Fox Nation reported on Monday in a repost of a BuzzFeed article.

The newsletter in question mentions the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and puts the event in a light that questions the official government generated narrative: “We’re far from knowing everything, or even many things, about the horrific bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building,” Fox Nation quotes.

This article first appeared at Alt Market

Only a few days ago I attended a community meeting here in the Flathead Valley of Montana which revolved around the first of a series of gubernatorial debates covered by webcast across the state. The number of Republican candidates vying in the primaries of this election is a bit absurd, and after witnessing the half-hearted or outright fake performances by most of them, I can see quite clearly that the state of Montana is being targeted by Neo-Con interests posing as Constitutionalists in an attempt to neutralize the extraordinary advance of the Liberty Movement here.

What struck me most sharply was the fact that almost every candidate vying for the governor’s slot had taken on elements of the Liberty Movement philosophy. The elections of 2012 and the immense success of the Ron Paul campaign have so far proven without a doubt that the anti-globalist, anti-totalitarian, anti-collectivist stance is now part of a growing majority in America. Just as we have forced Neo-Con candidates in the Presidential primaries to at least pretend that they care about freedom (quite a change from the Bush years), so too are Republican impostors forced to mimic us in the battle for state offices.

Oliver Stone: I Would Vote For Ron Paul Over Obama oliver stone

Acclaimed film director Oliver Stone, known for such masterpieces as Platoon, JFK and Born on the Fourth of July, has declared he would vote for Ron Paul over Barack Obama, if Paul could secure the 2012 GOP nomination.

Stone made the comments in an interview with Rock Cellar magazine, noting “I think in many ways the most interesting candidate — I’d even vote for him if he was running against Obama — is Ron Paul.”

“He’s the only one of anybody who’s saying anything intelligent about the future of the world.” Stone added.

When asked if an economic collapse would lead to the fall of the American “empire”, Stone responded “I think it’s a given.”

“There’s no way that we can continue this spending spree.” The Wall Street director added.

In 2008, Stone was an outspoken Obama supporter and donated the maximum amounts legally possible to the Obama campaign, calling the eventual president the “heir to John F. Kennedy.”

From surviving the Nazi occupation of Hungary during World War II, to single handily crashing the currencies of entire nations, the experience he brings to the table should not be ignored.

During Last night’s NBC hosted GOP debate in Florida, Ron Paul was once again roundly ignored and dismissed as a potential candidate.

Paul spoke for less than 6 minutes out of the hour long debate. He was skipped over completely on three questions when everyone else got to speak, and was not offered the chance to respond to several attacks on his policies from the other candidates.

In comparison, Romney and Gingrich were afforded close to 35 minutes of speaking time, not even taking into account the now ubiquitous bickering between the two that viewers had to once again endure.

Says he would have no problem with TSA detaining US Congressman

 

Slime time radio host Rush Limbaugh took to the air yesterday and declared that GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul “sounds like an Islamic terrorist”.

 

Rush Limbaugh - Caricature

Limbaugh was commenting on the incident involving Congressman Paul’s son, Senator Rand Paul, who was detained by the TSA in Nashville after refusing to submit to an enhanced pat-down.

 

Limbaugh exclaimed that Rand Paul had “sent his dad a note about it and it’s become a big story out there.”

 

“If this had been Ron Paul, you couldn’t really blame the TSA.” Limbaugh continued, “You have to admit, Ron Paul almost sounds like an Islamic terrorist sometimes…” he added before sniggering and suggesting he meant the comment as a joke.

 

Listen below:

 

Clearly, as far as Limbaugh is concerned, anyone who has a problem with federal goons shoving their hands down people’s pants is probably a terrorist.

 

Anyone who isn’t for a million plus dead Iraqis is a terrorist. In Limbaugh’s world, anyone who concludes that bombing the living hell out of a country might make the people there hate us is a terrorist.

 

Limbaugh is right, anyone who isn’t for spending trillions of dollars on building and maintaining thousands of military bases overseas, while bankrupting the US, is a dangerous threat to the nation.

States’ Rights vs. Monetary Monopoly by Thomas J. DiLorenzo

The federal government today can wage wars without the consent of our congressional representatives, overthrow foreign governments, tax nearly half of national income, abolish civil liberty in the name of “homeland security” and “the war on drugs,” legalize and endorse infanticide “partial-birth abortion”, regulate nearly every aspect of our existence, and there’s little or nothing we can do about it.

“Write your congressman” is the refrain of the slave to the state who doesn’t even realize he’s a slave thanks to decades of government school brainwashing.But Americans were not always slaves to federal tyranny. Perhaps the best illustration of this is how Americans once utilized the Jeffersonian, states’ rights traditions of nullification and interposition to assist President Andrew Jackson in his campaign to veto the re-chartering of the Second Bank of the United States BUS in 1832. Jackson essentially ended central banking in America until it was revived thirty years later by the Lincoln administration. The story is told in James J. Kilpatrick‘s wonderful 1957 book, The Sovereign States: Notes of a Citizen of Virginia.The Bank was notorious for fraud, mismanagement, corruption, and attempts to engineer a “political business cycle.” Prior to 1861, the American people were still sovereign over their government. They exercised that sovereignty in the way the founders intended: through state political conventions or legislatures. The federal government was their agent.Consequently, as early as 1816, Indiana and Illinois amended their state constitutions to prohibit the BUS from establishing branches within their jurisdictions. North Carolina, Georgia, and Maryland imposed heavy taxes on BUS branches within their states in attempts to tax them out of existence

They believe he’s simply not eligible under the Constitution’s requirement that a president be a “natural born citizen.” They say the Founders thought of that status as the offspring of two citizen parents, and Obama’s father was Kenyan. Or they say he wasn’t born in the U.S. They are legitimately allowed to raise those challenges under a state law.But several observers say no one really should expect Obama to arrive.For one thing, his important presidential trip to Denver, Detroit and Las Vegas, three key regions where he wants to build his support before the November 2012 election, is on tap.Discover what the Constitution’s reference to “natural born citizen” means and whether Barack Obama qualifies, in the ebook version of “Where’s the REAL Birth Certificate?”Besides that, Eric Segall of Georgia State University told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that this is just like all the other lawsuits over Obama’s eligibility: worthless.“There have been many, many lawsuits trying to litigate the issue of the president’s nationality,” the law professor opined. “They have all been dismissed and this one should be too. In light of the frivolousness of the case, the judge has no valid authority to require the president to appear in court.”The administrative court itself probably would not pursue any sort of procedure against the president should he fail to appear, but Marietta, Ga., attorney Melvin Goldstein said the logical sequence of events would be, presuming Obama’s failure to appear, for the court to refer the matter to a superior court judge in the county, who could determine whether a contempt citation against Obama would be supported.

Doing a Background Check on CNN

Since CNN broadcasters seem so intent on looking back decades into promo letters and newletters put out by one of Ron Paul‘s organizations,when everyone admits Ron Paul did not write the letters, lets take a look at the background of some of those affiliated with CNN. It’s as elitist as you can get, with strong ties to the CIA recruiting ground, Yale University.

3. Internal Improvements (Again)

When Lincoln was elected in 1860, the constitutions of almost all of the states prohibited subsidies for internal improvements. Furthermore, federal subsidies had never materialized for constitutional reasons either. “Constitutional scruples” had prevented Congress from passing a Pacific Railway Act but Lincoln had very few constitutional scruples. Any he might have had rapidly disintegrated once the Republicans controlled both the Senate and the White House.

By mid-1862 the military situation was desperate. Nevertheless, the Lincoln administration diverted millions of dollars to the construction of a railroad in California. The major opposition to such subsidies had previously…

Prison Planet.com » Did TSA Target Rand Paul for Intrusive Pat-down?

January 24, 2012 5 comments

Following Rand Paul’s incident earlier today with the TSA, the corporate media spun the story to say Paul was not detained. Jay Carney, the White House spokesman, set the tone when he insisted Paul – or rather, the passenger in question – was not detained.

“Let’s just be clear,” Carney said in his Monday press briefing. “The passenger was not detained. He was escorted out of the area by local law-enforcement.”

Although Congress was back in session for scarcely more than a day last week, private citizens across the country managed to cause an uproar felt across Capitol Hill. The uproar took the form of hundreds of thousands of phone calls to both Senators and Representatives, urging them to oppose two draconian new bills that threaten the free and unbridled flow of information on the internet.

On Wednesday last week, dozens of prominent websites like Wikipedia, Reddit, and Craigslist, were blacked out in protest of two bills known in DC jargon as SOPA and PIPA. SOPA is the House bill; PIPA is its Senate companion. These bills ostensibly will combat internet piracy, and of course we also are told they will help us wage the never ending “war on terror.”

Prison Planet.com » SOPA and PIPA Fully Alive — And a New Bill Joins Them

January 24, 2012 1 comment

This article first appeared at Activist Post.

Many of us breathed a sigh of relief when an overwhelming amount of Americans banned together and voiced their opposition to Congress over both the Stop Online Piracy Act, and Protect Intellectual Property Act.

Sites that dimmed the screen for a day or two have gone back to normal — Facebook users have swapped their anti-SOPA images for their previous profile pictures.

We may have even believed that the postponement of the vote originally scheduled for January 24th was some sort of white flag of capitulation. But that is certainly not the MO of most lawmakers.

While the outcry did get the attention of Congress, they are simply returning unflinchingly back to the drawing board to wait out our attention spans. Articles whirled that SOPA was dead and the bill was pulled when the bill’s sponsor Lamar Smith said in a statement that there would be no further action “until there is wider agreement on a solution.”

Lamar isn’t really listening. “It is clear that we need to revisit the approach on how best to address the problem of foreign thieves that steal and sell American inventions and products.”

Actually, SOPA is set to be reformulated in February. PIPA will be revisited with possible amendments in the coming weeks. Case in point, all is still open and possible — nothing is dead, pulled, or cancelled. If that wasn’t enough to keep us on our toes, a new, similar bill has surfaced.

Déjà Vu in the form of OPEN — The New Anti-Piracy Bill

As an alternative to SOPA-PIPA, Representative Darrell Issa (CA-R), and 24 co-sponsors introduced the Online Protection and Enforcement of Digital Trade (OPEN) H.R. 3782 on Wednesday, during the Internet blackout.

From PCWorld:

OPEN would give oversight to the International Trade Commission (ITC) instead of the Justice Department, focuses on foreign-based websites, includes an appeals process, and would apply only to websites that “willfully” promote copyright violation.

“We don’t have a $billion war chest.” Another lie from the Obama enterprise. The disclaimer is made by Obama parrot, Jim Messina, campaign manager for Obama America, the primary strut on the Obama wheel to re-elect arguably the worst president in America history.

In an email letter sent to Obama supporters, Messina states, “chatter from the other side tells you we have $1 billion war chest.” Like a defendant on trial, Messina retorts, “We deny that.” In the same email message, Messina brazenly asks for your $5-$25 donation as grassroots support for president Obama, telling the reader it’s those modest donations that have powered the Obama organization from the start. The lie, cloaked in a folksy ribbon and bow package is as pathetic as the president’s record.

In Barack Hussein Obama’s first thousand days in Office, he has accumulated an additional $5 trillion in debt (plus he wants another $1.5 trillion on the credit card), with absolutely nothing to show for this irresponsible spending! Obama promised an endless stream of green jobs; it never happened. If Solyndra’s example of a $½ billion Federal loan turned into bankruptcy is any indication of what the public can expect from the green industry, the outlook is dire. The president’s record is dismal. This Administration has but one issue on which to hang its hat:

Paul McGuire — Multiple Nukes Going Off in U.S. Cities

January 24, 2012 2 comments

What would happen if a nuclear blast went off in just one American City? Let’s look at the results of a nuclear explosion released by the Department of Homeland Security’s Terror Report and the Center for Disease Control Emergency Preparedness and Response. The CDC describes a nuclear blast produced by a nuclear bomb which involves the splitting of atoms called fission or fusion. It produces an intense wave of heat, light, air pressure and radiation. The bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan at the end of World War II were examples of such blasts.

However, the nuclear bomb that went off in Hiroshima only had an equivalent of 12,500 tons of TNT. A simple 1 Megaton bomb hydrogen bomb would be 80 times more powerful than the bomb that went off in Hiroshima.

Devvy Kidd — Update: My Fight Against the ‘Smart’ Meter

January 24, 2012 3 comments

If you are unfamiliar with my case, I’ve already written three articles on this disaster; see here. I still have my old analog meter; the meter reader dutifully comes once a month. I unlock the gates, escort him to him to the meter and back out the gate; on go the locks.

As you can see in article one at the bottom, there are links to more than a dozen articles from experts in the field of electro magnetic frequency radiation technology. For those of us who have zero understanding in that field, I’ve now spent more than 200 hours reading and sorting opinions from scientists and doctors who have decades of experience. All this ‘dirty energy’ is killing us and that’s not hyperbole.

I’m not one of those people who hate the big utility companies. I am grateful to live in a country where we have heat and air conditioning piped right into our homes. Utility companies are just like any other business. They have to make a profit in order to stay in business, but they should not be allowed to expose us to technology that is so incredibly dangerous to the human body. I’m not going to rehash the money issue because that’s what this is all about – tens of billions of dollars at stake for the utility companies.

East Orange, New Jersey to beam suspects of future criminal activity with flashy, hi-tech police surveillance equipment

In a glowing review of the rising prevalence of high-tech big brother surveillance gadgets in police force use, the Associated Press reports that East Orange, New Jersey plans to cut crime by highlighting suspects with a red-beamed spotlight– before any crime is committed– a “pre-crime” deterrent to be mounted on nearby street lights or other fixtures.

Alternative Video Link.

According to the report, police officers monitor hundreds of video feeds from across the city and opt to brand would-be criminals with a red glow if they believe they are about to engage in a crime, such as a street corner mugging.

“Whereas London has talking cameras, we’re about to deploy light projecting cameras, better known as light-based intervention systems.” said William Robinson, Police Chief for East Orange. He added, “The message to criminals is, we’re observing you, the police are recording you, and the police are responding.”

As Robinson mentioned, other “pre-crime” measures have been deployed both in the UK and United States, as well as other countries. Talking cameras in the UK bark orders at ‘anti-social’ offenders, while the Homeland Stasi here has partnered with Intellistreets to release “smart” street lights capable of saving energy while monitoring & recording citizens, as well as displaying government-mandated emergency alerts on digital banners.

Now “pre-crime” spotlights that bathe surveillance targets in a criminally-branded red color will help complete the circle of preemptive suspicion.

A d v e r t i s e m e n t

But that’s just one flashy feature in a rash of new high-tech solutions provided to the crime-ridden city under federal grant money. In East Orange, and probably a locale near you, too, everyone is a “pre-crime” suspect until proven innocent.

During the practically endless series of Republican debates, we have heard almost every question imaginable asked to Republican candidates – if by every question imaginable, you mean horribly slanted, often irrelevant questions designed to make them look bad and help Obama. We’ve heard questions about contraceptives, religion, Newt’s angry ex-wife, Gardasil, etc., etc., etc. So, what would happen if the mainstream media treated Barack Obama the exact same way that they treat Republicans? The questions might sound a little something like this……

(“CASE TO BE HEARD ON JANUARY 26 IN ATLANTA”) Obama’s Georgia Attorney Files Motion to Quash Subpoenas in Ballot Challenge | The Post & Email

CASE TO BE HEARD ON JANUARY 26 IN ATLANTA

by Sharon Rondeau

Atty. Orly Taitz has used a Georgia subpoena to compel the Hawaii Department of Health to reveal Obama’s original birth certificate, which to date it has refused to do

(Jan. 18, 2012) — Atty. Orly Taitz, who represents a registered voter and four presidential candidates in a challenge to the eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama to have his name placed on the Georgia ballot for the election of 2012, has told The Post & Email that Obama’s attorney has filed a Motion to Quash which states that “The subpoenas serve no permissible function.”

At issue is whether or not Obama qualifies as a “natural born Citizen” as stipulated in Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution. Obama has claimed a birth in Hawaii, but no hospital there will confirm it. The question of whether or not a person born to a non-U.S. citizen father can be “natural born” has not been answered by any court in the country over the last three and one-half years.

Prison Planet.com » Soros Mouthpiece Calls On Google To Police “Conspiracy Theories”

January 24, 2012 4 comments

Former fellow of George Soros’ Open Society and current Stanford University scholar Evgeny Morozov has called on Google and other search engines to become thought crime enforcers, by providing warnings about websites that contain “conspiracy theories” such as the belief, held by a majority of Americans, that global warming is not primarily man-made.

Soros Mouthpiece Calls On Google To Police Conspiracy Theories Author Evgeny Morozov of 007

Morozov, whose biography confirms him as a well-connected insider, decries in a Slate piece how the Internet is a useful tool for “People who deny global warming” as well as “the anti-vaccination movement,” calling on Google to provide a “socially responsible curated treatment” that would marginalize such beliefs by amending search results.

His solution is to, “Nudge search engines to take more responsibility for their index and exercise a heavier curatorial control in presenting search results for issues like “global warming” or “vaccination.” Google already has a list of search queries that send most traffic to sites that trade in pseudoscience and conspiracy theories; why not treat them differently than normal queries? Thus, whenever users are presented with search results that are likely to send them to sites run by pseudoscientists or conspiracy theorists, Google may simply display a huge red banner asking users to exercise caution and check a previously generated list of authoritative resources before making up their minds.”

Morozov describes the potential that such a move will be judged as Google “shilling for Big Pharma or for Al Gore” as “a risk worth taking”.

Prison Planet.com » If The TSA Will Treat Senator Rand Paul Like A Scumbag, What Will They Do TO YOU?

January 24, 2012 6 comments

On Monday, U.S. Senator Rand Paul was detained by the TSA for about two hours at an airport in Nashville. By doing so, TSA officials directly violated the U.S. Constitution and they demonstrated once again why the rest of the world is coming to regard us as a bunch of disgusting, arrogant “pig people”.

Official portrait of United States Senator (R-KY).

Do we really want to get such a bad reputation that virtually nobody will ever want to visit this country? We are going to absolutely destroy our tourism industry with this nonsense. Yes, we all want to fly safely, but other countries get the job done without their security officials running around acting like a bunch of Nazi prison guards. The TSA should be shut down, but if Congress wants it to continue to exist it should be given a dual mandate. It should be directed to protect the dignity of the American people first, and the safety of the American people second. If those running the TSA don’t believe that this is possible, then they should be immediately replaced, because there are a whole lot of good people out there that could get the job done. Right now, TSA officials are treating American citizens like they aren’t even human. The truth is that Rand Paul got off easy compared to what has happened to many other Americans. As I have written about previously, some elderly Americans have been strip-searched, some have had their adult diapers removed, and some have even been left covered in urine by invasive TSA searches.
