Can We Change Everyone in the Military? by Christian Light… (” One of my buddies joined the Army, I joined the Air Force, and the one who I messaged joined the Marines…………….”)
“I get out of the marine corps in 3 months, and guess what? I did 4 years! And went to Afghanistan! Got my combat action ribbon. You bailed outta the chair force while being stationed in Germany. Must have been some rough times over there. Hahah not! Don’t ever add me again! You’re worthless! Enjoy working Au chicken express doing nothing with your life. Tell that fat f**k bill I said what’s up. NOT!!”
I was pretty surprised to receive this message back. He and I had not talked in almost a year before I sent him a message that day. It’s not that we hadn’t talked that long out of spite, it’s just because he was in the Marines and stationed in California and I was in Germany.
We went our separate ways but we were still friends as far as I knew. I was also curious how he knew I was out because none of my buddies had talked to him in a while and none told him I was out. I think the only way he knew was a post I posted on Facebook saying I was happy to be out. I was perplexed also because when I went to message him it said we were no longer friends. Maybe this should have been foreshadowing to what he was about to send me.
The things you discover only after Obama is re-elected… (“…Robert Greenwald discovers that Obama has been killing children with drones”)
During my recent trip to Pakistan as part of our upcoming documentary film, Drones Exposed, I was struck most by the stories told to me by children who had experienced a U.S. drone strike firsthand. The impact of America’s drone war in the likes of Pakistan and Yemen will linger on, especially for the loved ones of the 178 children killed in those countries by U.S. drone strikes.
War Costs’ latest video (with accompanying report) brings attention to the children who have died as a result of drone strikes. The video names some of the children who perished in these strikes, and points out the obfuscation tactics of American officials who will not own up to the significant amount of civilian casualties that have occurred due to this legally- and morally-dubious policy.
As hard as it is to believe, it’s been only a little over three weeks since Election Day. But there are already plenty of signs that Republicans are learning many of the wrong lessons from that debacle. For starters, there’s been a lot of excessive emphasis on racial demographics, which actually changed very little from 2008. According to exit polling, the portion of Hispanic voters went up just 1 percentage point, the portion of Asian voters went up just 1 point, and the portion of black voters stayed the same. Meanwhile, the portion of white voters fell 2 points — largely because, as Sean Trende notes, Mitt Romney failed to turn out several million such voters.
Now Senator John McCain says that, when it comes to the life-or-death matter of abortion, Republicans should “leave the issue alone.” Well, it would be hard to have left the issue any more alone than Romney did, and what did it get him? On an issue on which Americans are typically split pretty much right down the middle, exit polling showed that voters favored the legality (59 percent), rather than illegality (36 percent), of abortion in “most” or “all” cases. This suggests that Romney’s silence in the face of Obama’s pro-abortion rhetoric caused some swing voters to shift their position leftward (as people are inclined to do when they hear only one side of an issue advanced) — while millions of pro-life voters apparently sat this one out.
Once Boxed-In, Boehner May Finally Be Master Of The House… (“Not long ago, it seemed to many observers that the House of Representatives was a case of the tail wagging the dog, with Speaker John Boehner unable to keep in line many of his fellow Republicans, especially freshmen who came to Congress riding the 2010 Tea Party wave. Now, however, the big dog seems back in control.”)
Not long ago, it seemed to many observers that the House of Representatives was a case of the tail wagging the dog, with Speaker John Boehner unable to keep in line many of his fellow Republicans, especially freshmen who came to Congress riding the 2010 Tea Party wave.
Now, however, the big dog seems back in control.
Some of the signs are subtle, some not. But as he faces off with President Obama during fiscal cliff negotiations, Boehner enjoys a stronger position with House Republicans than he had during earlier showdowns with the White House.
In a paradoxical way, Obama’s re-election victory coupled with congressional Democrats adding to their numbers may have helped Boehner. Some of those wins came at the expense of the Tea Party, the conservative movement whose affiliated House members have been very willing to stand up to Boehner.
LETTER TO CAPTIVES (“We are all captives of government, because we have forgotten what truth makes us free. “) – EDRIVERA.COM : EDRIVERA.COM
An Open Letter To Government Captives
Dear Captive of Government,
You are a fellow Captive of government. We are all captives of government, because we have forgotten what truth makes us free. Government truth is qualified as to people, place and purpose. God’s truth is universal. It is a fundamental tenet of the Christian faith that obedience to God’s laws will make us free. God makes His laws easily known by writing them on every human heart. The Congress of the United States has become the Tower of Babel of written law.
As a follower of God’s law, you need only learn how to avoid becoming a person in a place with a government purpose to stay clear of government and its laws. I will teach you the Organic Law, basic documents, upon which government patterns its laws. Government doesn’t know the limitations of its written law, because it doesn’t know the Organic Law of the United States of America.
Electronic Stalking and Harassment
By Gordon Duff and Mike Harris
Mike sent me this link, which ties to a presentation on advanced capabilities in the area of the thought control and very real violent attack. The esoteric nature of technologies available through “dark” research projects has made such things more than a possibility.
The only issue is whether you are one who is adequately “on the radar” enough to be subjected to such methods.
Electronic Harassment and Stalking
Great! Maybe Kate could return the favor and give Snooki and her fellow Americans some advice. About fiscal prudence, for example…
In his recent book Presidential Perks Gone Royal, Robert Keith Gray, a former Eisenhower staffer, revealed that last year the U.S. presidency cost American taxpayers $1.4 billion. Over the same period, the entire royal family cost British taxpayers about $57 million. There’s nothing “royal” about the current level of “presidential perks”: The Obama family costs taxpayers more than every European royal house put together.
Obama’s Power Grab…”All 43 presidents before Barack Obama had to get Congress’s approval. There’s a reason. When government borrows, We the People have to pay it back. “
President Obama went over the constitutional cliff this week, demanding more power than the U.S. Constitution allows any president to have. All Americans — regardless of party affiliation — should shudder at the president’s attempted power grab and say no. Compromising on taxes and spending is fine, but not on the nation’s bedrock principles.
To avert the so-called fiscal cliff on Jan. 1, 2013, Obama is insisting that House Republicans hand over to him Congress’s authority to raise the debt ceiling. Obama is demanding a power no other president has ever had — to borrow without congressional prior approval. Under Obama’s scheme, Congress would have to muster a veto-proof 2/3 majority in each house, an unlikely feat, to stop the borrowing. Obama’s demand would put him in the driver’s seat (instead of Congress) with no speed limit.

Editor’s Note: This comes as no surprise. The American Israeli Lobby and Israeli Intel keeps a close eye on any ranking generals who might have presidential ambitions. It’s part of their job.
For years they have been offered free junkets to Israel where they are ‘evaluated’ as to their usefulness and willingness to join the Israeli insider team to high post retirement positions.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr said of Fox News Friday, “It’s divided our country in a way that we haven’t been divided probably since the Civil War.”
This occurred during an online video interview with the Huffington Post (video follows with transcript and commentary):
ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR: There’s two things happening. One is the influence of big money in politics, and the other is the right-wing control of the American media, particularly starting with Fox News. 95 percent of talk radio in our country is right-wing, and you need, according to Pew survey, and you, so a whole section of our country that that’s what they’re hearing. They wake up in the morning, when they go to bed at night.

Castro Tied to Cartels, CIA, Bush – Romney Money Laundering
Multiple Official Confirmations Suppressed
“Cuba had its ‘revolution’, but it was the CIA that put Castro into power. Cuba did not really become ‘free’.”
(Editor’s note: Years of FBI investigations into US money laundering tied to major financial organizations including Bain Capitol, the Bush family, Bank of America, powerful groups tied to AIPAC and the Cartels have led to Cuba.
Criminal cases were brought to the Ashcroft Department of Justice and suppressed. Many powerful Americans faced prison for drug crimes and even espionage on a massive scale.
The files are ready, the evidence has been sequestered with law firms around the world, ready to file at any time a free government emerges with a desire for justice.)
(Gunny G: What “The Folks” Are Saying About…) ~Forget Tea Party Candidates, We Need Birther Candidates (Vanity)
The GOP-e was shaken by the Tea Partyers a couple years back, but fought back and succeeded in pushing the Tea Partyers/Palin backers out of the convention and nominating their man Romney.
But the Tea Partyers had some success, like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. Who’s to say a few well placed Birther candidates couldn’t have some success? If we could field a few Birther candidates who promise to make the ineligibility of the current Commander-in-Chief a central issue, even if only one of them gets through the system it will be a 100% gain for conservatives.
The Daily Bell – FDR, Lincoln … and a Disturbing Supposition Regarding Barack Obama… (“…this is a disturbing supposition. It would seem to be indicating that something is to unfold in President Barack Obama’s second term that may replicate some of the same sort of events that took place under FDR and Lincoln. What those events are to be is not yet clear. But it is a most disturbing supposition…..”)
…..The big problem with this review is that its premise is faulty. Today, we know that much of Hitler‘s military buildup and indeed his rise to power was supported by same Western financial forces that are today pursuing “the war on terror” and apparently for much the same reasons.
Thanks to what we call the Internet Reformation, we can see the scope of history more fully. The information is finally available. It seems to show us that the real reason both the first and second world wars were fought was in part to generate global governance, a process that remains underway today.
And we can see that after every large war, the West lost considerable freedoms. Under Lincoln, the free press was suspended, politicians and journalists who opposed the war were jailed. The result of an exceptionally bloody war was that states could not secede without facing military retaliation. History shows us that once a regime is emplaced by force, empire (of a sort) is inevitable and then, eventually, a downfall.
The Obama Administration has launched its newest campaign to confiscate the minds of our children. To qualify for federal grant funds, Obama is requiring states to adopt a new program called Common Core State Standards In English. The program would wipe great works of literature from English curriculums across the country.
And replace them with “information text”, such as “Executive Order 13423: Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management”, an Order, of course, favorable to the Liberal environmentalist movement.
Via Lucianne, Powerline reports,
This is a LOT to digest in such a short time frame and Ed DOES in fact support all of his conclusions with citations from written law.
I met Ed in 1996, a LONG time before he actually discovered what we now know to be true. The entire system was a fraud from the beginning and good ol’ “can’t tell a lie” George Washington is as fake as his wooden teeth.
Breaking Through… “Lift Up Your Hearts We’re winning, and the establishment is terrified, says Eric Peters.”
The question facing liberty-minded people almost 100 years later is the same. But our answer should not be Lenin’s answer – violent lashing out.
I get e-mails from readers who are frustrated – rightly – about the state of things. About how Ron Paul was treated by the GOP apparat. About the seemingly relentless increase in (and brazenness of) state thuggery. They ask, “when do we do something?” “How much more do we take”?
And most of all: “What is the point of just bitching about things?”
A Republican Retreat – or Rout? ~ (“The GOP Is on Life Support To Pat Buchanan, that’s bad news. (I say, pull the plug. “)
Now, what had seemed an orderly retreat has taken on the aspect of a rout, with Beltway Republicans calling for abandonment of fixed positions all along the line.
After Senate candidates Richard Mourdock in Indiana and Todd Akin in Missouri bollixed the question of abortion in cases of rape, Republicans are being counseled to downgrade or dump the social issues. As young people seem to support same-sex marriage, why not be good libertarians and get on board?
As Romney got 27 percent of the Hispanic vote, we must stop this talk of border fences, ID cards, employer sanctions and “self-deportation,” and reconsider amnesty and a path to citizenship.
