hrough the slit of the burqa she wore to blend in on the streets of Alexandria, Egypt, Kalli Atteya waited and watched until the boy climbed off the school bus. When she saw him, she moved quickly, grabbing his arm and steering him toward the waiting motorized cart.
“Get in,” she said to the 12-year-old, who recognized his mother’s piercing blue eyes and obeyed wordlessly.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is actively shopping for a drone that would “stalk hunters,” the organization said Monday.

The group says it will “soon have some impressive new weapons at its disposal to combat those who gun down deer and doves” and that it is “shopping for one or more drone aircraft with which to monitor those who are out in the woods with death on their minds.”
The group says it will not weaponize the drones, but will use them to film potentially illegal hunting activity and turn it over to law enforcement.

Former Air Force pilot Scott O’Grady warns of Muslim
Well, that’s because they don’t have to hide. One of the scum who is believed to have masterminded the 9-11-12 attack in Libya that killed four Americans isn’t even hiding his love of decadent Western fruity frappes. Another just got released. So yeah, there’s no place to hide. Except, at this point, the entire planet. To date, the Obama government has not retaliated against anyone anywhere for the Benghazi attack.

Secret fears and secret fury concerns are based in the President’s memories of his father, Barack Obama I, a man who held deep seated anger against the concept of colonialism which the elder man experienced while living in Africa. Also, one anecdotal story concerns the younger Obama coming upon a conversation involving his mother about the topic of abortion. He somehow felt perhaps he was considered a candidate for the procedure given the questions of his parentage and the matrimonial bond; he wanted women to have a pro-choice orientation to life.

A Short Rundown on Things that Won’t Be in the Paper

The election in the US is likely to turn violent. We hear things like this but there is actual mobilization
and very real terror warnings out tied to the election.
Romney is so far behind, there has been nothing like this in US history.
The problem is, world organized crime is behind Romney. Bain has now been tracked to Africa, involvement in the blood diamond trade which is tied to arms and drugs, an explanation as to why so many bank accounts.
One of the groups paralleling his activities in Africa originated in Zimbabwe and has been involved in the development of germ warfare and the actual release of both ebola and influenza strains, not just in Africa but other areas much much closer to home.
According to several reports in the Arabic media, prominent Muslim clerics have begun to call for the demolition of Egypt’s Great Pyramids—or, in the words of Saudi Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi‘i, those “symbols of paganism,” which Egypt’s Salafi party has long planned to cover with wax.
The chances are good that if you ask someone on the street what LIBOR is, they would guess it to be an obscure country in Africa. The reality, of course, is that LIBOR is something that affects everyone, to the extent that it “sets” the interest rate you’ll be paying for your mortgage, car loan, credit cards, and the rate of return you’ll receive on your pension, 401K, savings and all financial instruments. In total, it establishes the pricing of financial products across the world to the tune of up to $800 trillion. Trillion.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) are focusing on population control through their Global Health Development Programs. By using citizens in underdeveloped nations, like Africa and India, as guinea pigs for their research and development for “new interventions such as vaccines, drugs and diagnostics”, these globalists hope to ensure their family planning schemes are effective.
Obama’s expansion of the war on terror
Politico44 ^ | 6/14/12 | DONOVAN SLACK
Posted on Thursday, June 14, 2012 9:50:43 AM by ColdOne
he Washington Post reports that the United States has set up a network of air bases across Africa where unarmed spy planes diguised as private turbo-prop aircraft surveil potential terrorist hideouts across a wide swath of the continent:
The operations have intensified in recent months, part of a growing shadow war against al-Qaeda affiliates and other militant groups. The surveillance is overseen by U.S. Special Operations forces but relies heavily on private military contractors and support from African troops.
The surveillance underscores how Special Operations forces, which have played an outsize role in the Obama administration’s national security strategy, are working clandestinely all over the globe, not just in war zones. The lightly equipped commando units train foreign security forces and perform aid missions, but they also include teams dedicated to tracking and killing terrorism suspects.
But Obama himself maintained for 16 years – right up until 2007 when he got serious about running for the presidency – that he was indeed born in Kenya. He used this claim to his personal advantage to sell books.
Jim “Race Bannon” Bancroft was told by Barack Obama in 1980 that he was born in Mombasa, Kenya.
In this radio interview about his thirty year old memory, Bancroft recounts Obama’s admission. Bancroft was a member of the U.S. Marine Corps at the time and met Obama in the vicinity of Kalakaua Blvd., one evening in early August of 1980.
Marine: Obama Claimed He Was Born In Mombasa
To start with, I just got off the phone with a friend stationed an Ft. Huachuca in Arizona. He read me a story about J.T. Ready, the supposed “Neo-Nazi” who they say murdered his family and killed himself. Last week I got the police reports and put one of our local people on certain areas of the story. Later, I headed out to a local auto show, something we will finish up with, a lighter note.
I am not a big J.T. Ready fan. I had spoken with him at length, as with other candidates for sheriff across Arizona, and had some reservations about him. One horrible problem comes up, a major Phoenix paper, selectively quoting the lengthy police report, much easily proven total fiction, failed to mention 5 witnesses who saw two cars flee the scene immediately after the shooting.
The narrow gap between journalism and criminal conspiracy could be seen as having been crossed here. We can only hope the “feds” have a free hand to deal with this.
This is my point. In general, I work with former FBI often. In general, I like many law enforcement professionals, I respect what they do. However.
Many departments are terrible places to work, any cop will tell you that. What they don’t tell you is how many police are involved in organized crime, human trafficking, drugs and, most of all, murder for hire. Most professional killers in the US, and there are many, are serving police officers.
Just because you were once the most powerful nation on earth does not mean that you will always be the most powerful nation on earth. Every single year, hundreds of billions of dollars leaves the United States and goes to China. This enormous transfer of wealth has had a dramatic effect on both countries. In case you haven’t noticed, many of our formerly great manufacturing cities such as Detroit are rotting away while shining new factories and skyscrapers are going up all over China. I
f you go into any major retail store today and start turning over products, you will find that hundreds of them have been made in China and that very few of them have been made in America. As a nation, we buy far, far more from China than they buy from us. As a result, China is absolutely swimming in cash and they have been looking for things to do with all that money. One thing that China has done is loan the U.S. government over a trillion dollars and this has given the Chinese a tremendous amount of leverage over us. China has also started to buy up businesses, real estate and natural resources all over America.
Who is Barack Obama? The question remains contentious, but a new smoking gun piece of evidence makes certain that so-called “birthers” won’t be going anywhere. It has now emerged that Barack Obama’s own authorized biography while president of the Harvard Law Review says he was “born in Kenya” and raised in both Indonesia and Hawaii.
This is prima facie evidence that the public has been sold on a big lie. It further only reinforces the mountains of related evidence that has surfaced, not the least of which is Michele Obama’s own public statements about their returning to Barack’s “homeland” in Africa to conduct a public AIDS test stunt. Wow!

This is not an isolated case. Life as we have known it will cease to exist unless we all pour our efforts into this next election. Those who are “not interested” in politics will wish to God they had put efforts into this. The truly evil ones are less than 10% and follow satan. Those who have an entitlement mindset are about 35% (but they are also devoid of passion and essentially lazy). Our country was founded by 20% of the colony population. Which percentage will you be?
My personal experience with U.S. Border Patrol.
I am a threat. This is not about any loss of freedom you are about to experience but is about the lack of freedoms you currently have. The following account just happened to me, personally, as I recently crossed the border from Canada to the US. Many of you do not know me, but I am one of the founders of Conservative Daily. As a founder, I set out to create an environment where we could fight for freedom, fight for better moral and ethical direction, but even more importantly fight to hold those in positions of trust and power accountable. Every day, we research, draft and develop new ways to fight against the bureaucratic nightmare that we face as a nation, and to reveal the shame many that we call leaders have brought to our great nation.
I went to Canada to attend the Malibu Young Life Camp, a camp that is the definition of God’s paradise. The camp sits on the Princess Louisa Inlet, and has some 5500 visiting campers a year. It is a Christian camp that seeks to give teenagers a week of fun, faith, and fellowship.

Years of living dangerously off of the U.S. taxpayers’ dime have certainly served the Obama-Dunham family well according to investigative journalist Wayne Madsen.

The Republican leadership in Congress will not be investigating Obama’s Constitutional eligibility problem according to a leak out of a closed door meeting of top GOP rulers.
This is according to a commenter who had just read a post about Obama’s father being born in Kenya. They made this decision in a high stakes closed door meeting and are giving their rank and file members talking points centering on high gas prices and getting Americans back to work.
Ironic indeed is a new video surfacing of the November 5, 2008, session of the Kenyan Parliament which reveals then Senator Barrack (their spelling) called the Kenyan Parliament’s Vice President at midnight to say: “”Mr. Vice President, could you make sure you sort out this problem?”
The producer of this amazing video asks viewers what was the problem this Kenyan parliamentarian should not talk about?
The Kenyan speaker, by translator, is bringing before the Kenyan ruling body Standing Order #20 which declares the next day, Wednesday, November 6, a national holiday “to celebrate the fact that a son of the soil of this country (Kenya) was elected America’s President!”

The abject failure and refusal of Congress to act in the Obama eligibility crisis continues to harm America and to threaten her citizens as anger, confusion, and doubt build over whether or not our sitting President is even eligible to hold office, let alone be elected to a second term.
Their wait and see attitude is the pernicious blight staining everything else. When a 29 year old Iowa man took a trip to Africa to pursue his love of zoology, he was so overwhelmed by Kenyans asking him how he liked having a Kenyan citizen govern the United States, patriotic Lucas Daniel Smith abandoned his search for an elusive rare animal to turn instead to a quest to verify Barack Obama’s birth story.
In a certified letter he sent to every member of Congress, dated July 4, 2010, he said, “Kenyans were amused at how gullible Americans could be when it came to obvious things like the fact that Kenyans overtly admit to Barack Jr’s Kenyan birth, yet the Americans continue to believe they know better.”
Smith developed a plan that involved taking two Kenyan police and military officers with him to two different Mombasa hospitals. Smith told Congress, “I paid a total of three monetary bribes in the amounts of $200, USD, $500 USD, and $5,000 USD” to get Obama’s birth certificate.
While the premier internet site for everything about Obama’s eligibility, namely World Net Daily, doubts the reliability of the birth certificate Lucas Daniel Smith obtained from the Mombasa Coast Province General Hospital, he did come away with it and that’s worth something.
The New York Times, a paper supposedly devoted to freedom of speech, is giving sympathetic coverage to a frivolous lawsuit designed to silence an American Christian minister. Scott Lively is being sued by the George Soros-funded Center for Constitutional Rights CCR for “crimes against humanity” for criticizing homosexuality during a trip to Uganda.
The suit represents the most extreme development yet in a Soros-funded campaign to expand rights for homosexuals and legalize prostitution in the East African country and destroy its emerging Christian culture.Lively, who has spoken of the “The Global Threat of Homosexuality” and the “Lavender Marxists” targeting Uganda, was himself the target of protests from an ACORN-like group,
Arise for Social Justice, as the suit was being filed and reported on by the Times. Lively is currently based in Massachusetts, where he runs Abiding Truth Ministries and Holy Grounds Coffee Shop, an inner-city Christian ministry which offers assistance to the poor, the homeless and the destitute.The latter has been the subject of protests in the past from the Occupy movement.“The lawsuit maintains that beginning in 2002, Mr. Lively conspired with religious and political leaders in Uganda to whip up anti-gay hysteria with warnings that gay people would sodomize African children and corrupt their culture,” Times “journalist” Laurie Goodstein reports.
There is nothing in the 47-page suit that provides any such evidence of a conspiracy. Instead, the suit attempts to demonize Christians in Uganda, also named in the suit, who with the help of Americans such as Lively are trying to protect their culture from foreign interests.A major supporter of the gay rights movement, Soros and his Open Society Institute sponsored a four-day workshop in 2009 on legal strategies “to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights in Africa,” including Uganda.
Prison Planet.com » Bill Gates, Monsanto, and eugenics: How one of the world’s wealthiest men is actively promoting a corporate takeover of global agriculture
After it was exposed that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the philanthropic brainchild of Microsoft founder Bill Gates, purchased 500,000 shares in Monsanto back in 2010 valued at more than $23 million, it became abundantly clear that this so-called benevolent charity is up to something other than eradicating disease and feeding the world’s poor (http://www.guardian.co.uk).
It turns out that the Gates family legacy has long been one of trying to dominate and control the world’s systems, including in the areas of technology, medicine, and now agriculture.
TheGates Foundation, aka the tax-exempt Gates Family Trust, is currently in the process of spending billions of dollars in the name of humanitarianism to establish a global food monopoly dominated by genetically-modified (GM) crops and seeds. And based on the Gates family’s history of involvement in world affairs, it appears that one of its main goals besides simply establishing corporate control of the world’s food supply is to reduce the world’s population by a significant amount in the process.
Bill Gates’ father, William H. Gates Sr., has long been involved with the eugenics groupPlanned Parenthood, a rebranded organization birthed out of theAmerican Eugenics Society. In a 2003 interview withPBS‘ Bill Moyers, Bill Gates admitted that his father used to be the head ofPlanned Parenthood, which was founded on the concept that most human beings are just “reckless breeders” and “human weeds” in need of culling (http://www.pbs.org/now/transcript/transcript_gates.html).

Foster was attacked in his home by a drunk former romantic partner of one of Foster’s daughters. The attacker, Richard Dean Cantwell, assaulted Foster and was smashing Foster’s possessions. Foster armed himself with a .22-calibre revolver — a potent, if relatively low-powered, firearm. Cantwell attacked Foster, knocking him to the ground, and Foster shot Cantwell in the leg. Cantwell was able to wrest the gun from Foster, but fled the scene. He survived his injury.

Inside Africa: Near pristine image of Barack Obama’s 1961 baby footprint has surfaced in 2011| The Post & Email

Thirty-two months have passed since I exited Africa with a certified (2009) copy of Barack Obama’s 1961 Coast Province General Hospital (CPGH), Mombasa, British Protectorate of Kenya, Certificate of Birth. Said certificate of birth contains an image of a baby footprint. Said footprint is located in the lower left corner of the certificate. A close-up of the footprint is pictured below:
Maybe its just my natural paranoia, or, it could be that after nearly three full years of watching Obama’s slight of hand, and misdirection of America’s attention, I suspect something more going on than we are led to believe.
Now we are learning that US troops are already on the ground in Uganda, AND, will (according to an ABC News report) ultimately go to South Sudan, the Central African Republic, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, with the permission of those countries.
If my math is correct, the US is now currently engaged in military actions in four countries… simultaneously. If, and when, the US troops move across the borders in Africa, we will have military operations in not four, but SEVEN countries.
Is Obama now on a crusade to save the “dark continent?” What’s really going on … I mean besides Obama sucking up to leftists bleeding heart groups that will not accept that no one can save Africa but AFRICA!
Obama says: “although the U.S. forces are combat-equipped, they will only be providing information, advice, and assistance to partner nation forces, and they will not themselves engage LRA forces unless necessary for self-defense.” Uh-huh.
Can you say VIETNAM???
Is the average age of Americans now so young that we must deduce that America no longer remembers the colossal mistake, humongous blunder, in Vietnam that cost the lives of over 50,000 US servicemen and women? In the event that you do not remember… THIS is the way it began.

Obama Sends US Troops to Uganda
October 15, 2011
While America occupies Iraq and Afghanistan, wages covert war on Pakistan, conducts drone attacks on Yemen and Somalia, bombards Libya, and positions for a wider confrontation with Iran and Syria, Nobel Peace Prize Laurette President Obama has now quietly, without much fanfare, sent 100 US troops to help Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni crush rebels threatening his 25 year dictatorship.
In what is essentially a “reverse-Libyan-style” intervention, the US is sending troops to crush, not assist rebels rising up against their despotic ruler. Ironically, just as with Libya’s rebels, Uganda’s rebels are also listed as a foreign terrorist organization by the US State Department. Instead of the corporate-financier contrived International Criminal Court issuing fictitious warrants for Uganda’s head of state, as was done with Qaddafi in Libya, it is the Ugandan rebel leader, Joseph Kony, who is being targeted.
Both the Ugandan government (with US assistance) and the rebels, known as the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), are accused of perpetrating heinous atrocities against their enemies and civilian populations in their decades long conflict. In particular, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has just recently presided over the mass murdering and displacement of 20,000 of his own people on behalf of British corporations who sought to construct tree plantations on their land. US and British military assistance and business deals with the Ugandan government have been a ubiquitous feature throughout Museveni’s perpetual, unending term as president.
While mutilated victims of the LRA are just now being paraded in front of the public to frame the recent US troop deployment as another “humanitarian intervention,” it is more than likely that geopolitical aspirations, not humanitarian concerns, are driving this agenda. This is especially so considering just how equally abhorrent the Ugandan government’s human rights record is.
The LRA has often been harbored by the Sudanese government (now the South Sudanese government). Sudan has served as a proxy battlefield between the West and China for control over of its vast oil holdings and ultimately as part of a greater battle to control Africa’s resources. Sudan appears to have used the LRA as a sort of armed buffer between them and their neighbors, in particular, Uganda, ruled by an eager servant of the Anglo-American agenda.
A d v e r t i s e m e n t
Surely, as Africa, a forsaken continent, is already written off in the minds of many Americans, little concern and few eyebrow will be lifted as their Nobel Peace Prize-wearing president sends yet more troops off to war there, in a global military expansion quickly and alarmingly approaching the scale and scope of Adolf Hitler’s expansion across Europe and Northern Africa during World War II. This is difficult to deny when the final tally is done – the United States is conducting either covert or overt military operations in at least 8 nations – Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, Iran, Libya, Pakistan, and now Uganda – and has 820 military installations in at least 135 countries. As Wall Street and London seek global hegemony, the price Americans pay as this tally grows will only increase. However far flung Uganda may seem, every inch of expansion by the globalists is one inch less for free humanity.
Identify the corporate-financier interests engineering and driving this agenda, boycott andreplace them.
In addition to his wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, those underway in Yemen and Somalia – and coming soon in Iran – the warlord Obama is now dispatching troops to Uganda to do battle with the wacky yet murderous Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).
Globalist Warlord Obama Moves to Expand Africom Reach 8e03b1fd6ec53dabe403ff14c95b grandeLord’s Resistance Army provides pretext to expand globalist reach in Africa.
Obama’s move is next step following on the heels of Gaddafi’s defeat in Libya. Obama is following to the letter a well-drafted globalist plan for Africa, one that is partially enumerated in the the LRA Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Bill adopted by the U.S. Congress in 2009 and signed by Obama in early 2010. It “requires the US government to develop a new multifaceted strategy” against the LRA.
“Obama has said he is sending about 100 US soldiers to Uganda to help regional forces battle the notorious Lord’s Resistance Army,” the BBC reported on Friday. “Although combat-equipped, the troops would be providing information and advice ‘to partner nation forces,’ Mr Obama wrote in a letter to US Congress.”
Obama didn’t bother to consult Congress or abide by the Constitution. He just sent congressional leaders a letter announcing he would again violate the national sovereignty of yet another country.
“Obama’s announcement represents a highly unusual intervention for the United States,” reports the Associated Press. “Although some American troops are based in Djibouti [at the $6 billion Africom mega-base] and small groups of soldiers have been deployed to Somalia, the U.S. traditionally has been reluctant to commit forces to help African nations put down insurgencies.”
As usual, the exact opposite is the case – the U.S. military, the CIA, and their European partners manufacture insurgencies – the preferred destabilization method for the bankers.
The AP dredges up the “humanitarian crises” of Rwanda and Bosnia as cover for Obama’s move. “The change in policy could reflect the long-standing concerns of a number of high-ranking Obama advisers left scarred by the U.S. failure in the 1990s to intervene to stop the genocide in Rwanda and the belated action to finally halt the violence in Bosnia. For a current parallel, the Lord’s Resistance Army’s 24-year campaign of rebellion, rape and murder represents one of the world’s worst human rights crises today.”
Despite the brutality of the LRC, the AP has naturally declined to tell us the whole story. Uganda is a strategic asset for the United States. Back in 2005, investigative journalist Wayne Madsen reported that the U.S. had major communications and listening stations in Uganda’s Ruwenzori Mountains. Since then, Africom has set-up a sprawling operation there. Libya was its first “engagement.”
Moreover, the genocide in Rwanda was not simply blood lust between Tutsi and Hutu tribes, as dramatically depicted by the media at the time, but was ignited by several causes, most notably the intervention of the IMF in central Africa’s economy and its standard debt serving schemes resulting in famine and armed conflict, thus allowing the globalists to consolidate power.
“While the new loans [distributed to Rwanda] contributed to releasing money for the payment of debt servicing as well as equipping the armed forces, the evidence would suggest that a large part of this donor assistance was neither used productively nor was it channeled into providing relief in areas affected by famine,” writes Michel Chossudovsky.
In what is now a well-established pattern, the global elite exploited tensions created by the disastrous economic impact of its loan sharking operation and moved to establish a sphere of influence in a region historically dominated by the former colonial powers of France and Belgium.
“The civil war in Rwanda was a brutal struggle for political power between the Hutu-led Habyarimana government supported by France, and the Tutsi Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) backed financially and militarily by Washington,” Chossudovsky concludes. “Ethnic rivalries were used deliberately in the pursuit of geopolitical objectives. Both the CIA and French intelligence were involved.”
The IMF and World Bank played a cynical and murderous game in Uganda as well. Banker money ostensibly earmarked for the country’s economic and social reconstruction went to military destabilization operations in Rwanda and the Congo…..

Fight Erupts Over First Lady’s Travel Costs
US News ^ | 10/5/11 | Paul Bedard
Posted on Wednesday, October 05, 2011 5:02:56 PM by Nachum
A fight has broken out between the White House, its defenders and a conservative public watchdog group over first lady Michelle Obama‘s travel costs and how they are calculated. The dispute stems from a Judicial Watch release yesterday, reported by Whispers, that said the first lady’s June goodwill mission to Africa cost $424,142 just for her Air Force C32A.
Judicial Watch said it used Pentagon calculations to come up with the price to taxpayers, multiplying the hourly cost of $12,188 by the number of flight hours, 34.8.

The White House later said that the costs used were exaggerated and included elements typically not included in calculating flight costs.
“The number stated is misconstrued and out of context. The hourly rate is not the marginal cost of operating the plane—it is an accounting figure that prices in a number of fixed costs from maintaining the Air Force fleet for this kind of plane over a year. For example, it includes estimated replacement parts, depreciation, repairs, and costs that would have been incurred regardless of this flight,” said an official.

Although ignored by most of America’s liberal-dominated media, several online US news sites are reporting that Michelle Obama’s grand tour of southern Africa earlier this year cost American taxpayers nearly half a million dollars – and that’s just for the flights. This follows in the wake of claims this August from sources inside the White House itself that the First Lady may have spent “$10 million of taxpayers’ money on vacations alone in the past year.” Without all the figures available, it is impossible to establish the total cost to the public purse of Michelle Obama’s 42 days of holiday during that period, which included her trip to Spain last year (though not the Obamas‘ recent sojourn in Martha’s Vineyard).
But we do now know for sure that her visit to Africa in June, with a sizeable entourage in tow, cost taxpayers at the very minimum $424,142 in transportation costs, according to figures obtained by Washington-based watchdog Judicial Watch. As the ‘Washington Whispers’ blog at US News and World Report noted:
First lady Michelle Obama’s family trip to South Africa and Botswana in June cost taxpayers well over $424,000, according to new accounting based on Air Force manifests obtained by Judicial Watch, a taxpayer watchdog group.
The use of Air Force aircraft alone for the June 21-27 trip cost $424,142, said the group, and that doesn’t include the food, lodging, and ground transportation for the 21 family and staff members.

Here’s my fantasy: Libertarians are elected to the presidency and to majorities in Congress. What would happen next? Well, if libertarians were “in charge,” you’d have more freedom and prosperity.
Freedom frightens some people. They say if no one is in charge there would be chaos. That is intuitive, but think about a skating rink. Before rinks were invented, if you proposed an amusement in which people strap blades to their feet and skate around on ice at whatever speeds they wish, you’d have been called crazy. There’s got to be speed limits, stoplights, turn signals. But we know that people navigate rinks safely on their own. They create their own order, with only minimal rules.
Society would work the same way — and does to a large extent even today. “Great part of that order which reigns among mankind is not the effect of government,” Thomas Paine, the soul of the American Revolution, wrote. “It has its origin in the principles of society and the natural constitution of man. … Common interest (has) a greater influence than the laws of government.”
If libertarians were “in charge,” there would be laws to protect us from foreign enemies and those who would steal from us or injure us. Today, by contrast, under the rule of Democans and Republicrats, we’re drowning in rules — 160,000 pages’ worth. Micromanagement kills opportunity and freedom.
Maybe if there were a way to have more competition among governments, things would be better. Competition forces people to become more efficient and to get rid of stupid rules. What if we let people take over some unused land in America to create areas with fewer rules, simpler legal systems, smaller government?
I explored that subject last week with Michael Strong and Magatte Wade, founders of the Free Cities Project.
Strong said, “We want to encourage thousands of people to create new governments that have different rules, each competing for customers with the best education and best health care, the most peace and prosperity you could imagine.”
Of course, state governments would have to approve this.
“There are already Native American reservations in the U.S. … They can become more free. Honduras already has something like this. In Senegal, we’re encouraging a move toward an autonomous city-state that would allow for peace and prosperity.”
Wade is Strong’s wife and an entrepreneur from Senegal, where she saw firsthand how bad rules prevent people from creating prosperity.
“We need jobs. Who creates jobs? Entrepreneurs,” she said.
But Senegal is awash in rules. There was a government monopoly on cement. When the government allowed competition, prices fell by a third.
She started a beverage company.
“It was an ordeal. I did it because I am from Senegal. I have an interest in trying to improve things. But for an American company … why would they put themselves through such a thing?”
“What people don’t realize is the developing world is massively overregulated,” Strong said. “Africa is the most regulated continent on earth.”
In the Congo, it requires 18 documents to import anything.
Wade added: “The fact we have so many rules — who benefits most? Multinationals.”
“And crony capitalists,” Strong added. “Corruption in Africa is a symptom of massive overregulation.”
Are there any free cities along the lines Strong and Wade envision?
“Hong Kong and Singapore are the best examples,” Strong said. “Now they are among the wealthiest places on earth.”
And there is a free city in Dubai because the emirate wanted to create a financial sector, but sharia law prevented it.
“Dubai was brilliant,” Strong said. “They looked around the world. They saw that Hong Kong, Singapore, New York, Chicago, Sydney, London all ran British common law. British common law is much better for commerce than is French common law or sharia law. So they took 110 acres of Dubai soil, put British common law with a British judge in charge, and they went from an empty piece of soil to the 16th most powerful financial center in world in eight years.”
It’s what libertarians have said: Freedom works, and government, when it grows beyond the barest minimum, keeps people poor.

FOR AMERICANS TO FACE THE TRUTH
by One Pissed-off Vietnam Vet
(Sep. 18, 2011) — No, seriously, what will it take? We’ve been through the Marine barracks suicide bombing in Lebanon, the Lockerbie plane crash, the embassies in Africa blown to bits, the World Trade Center in 1993, planes flying into things in 2001, Fort Hood and so forth, yet Americans see nothing to be concerned about the Muslims amongst us as more and more arrive daily, some via planes, others sneaking over borders.
Americans turn a blind eye to the fact that that our prison system is nothing more than Muslim recruitment centers and remain complete oblivious to the mortal danger that we are putting ourselves in…………………
“Even as I hope for some measure of peace and comfort to the bereaved families, I must also hope that we as a nation draw some measure of wisdom from this tragedy. Certain immediate lessons are clear, and we must act upon those lessons decisively. We need to step up security at our airports. We must reexamine the effectiveness of our intelligence networks. And we must be resolute in identifying the perpetrators of these heinous acts and dismantling their organizations of destruction.
“We must also engage, however, in the more difficult task of understanding the sources of such madness. The essence of this tragedy, it seems to me, derives from a fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the attackers: an inability to imagine, or connect with, the humanity and suffering of others. Such a failure of empathy, such numbness to the pain of a child or the desperation of a parent, is not innate; nor, history tells us, is it unique to a particular culture, religion, or ethnicity. It may find expression in a particular brand of violence, and may be channeled by particular demagogues or fanatics. Most often, though, it grows out of a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair.
“We will have to make sure, despite our rage, that any U.S. military action takes into account the lives of innocent civilians abroad. We will have to be unwavering in opposing bigotry or discrimination directed against neighbors and friends of Middle Eastern descent. Finally, we will have to devote far more attention to the monumental task of raising the hopes and prospects of embittered children across the globe-children not just in the Middle East, but also in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe and within our own shores.”

The organization, which investigates and fights government corruption, earlier documented what appears to many to be the extravagant spending by then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Records showed Pelosi cost taxpayers $101,000 for in-flight food and alcohol over a period in 2008 and 2009. At one point she instructed the Air Force to provide chocolate-covered strawberries for a snack, since it was her birthday……………
