We have a problem when our supposed populist non politician front runner is a former Federal Reserve chairman. Herman Cain does have experience in the private sector, but a good portion of that private sector experience is working for the private corporation-The Federal Reserve.
Herman Cain believes that individual citizens can just call up the private corporation known as The Federal Reserve and ask them how they operate?
Who does he think we are? You cannot even step foot on the property of the Private Reserve. You can call the human relations department at the Federal Reserve and they will ignore your request.
Herman Cain says no need to audit The Federal Reserve.
Its not even a leading charge by just Ron Paul any longer.
The tide has turned, when even Gingrich sees the problem with The Federal Reserve.
Herman Cain is part of the problem. Herman Cain is damaged goods. He is an attractive candidate, but he is not the candidate that will turn this country around.
We need to understand that our monetary policy has been hijacked since 1913.

The sister-in-law of John Podesta, President Obama’s influential White House transition director, served as the lobbyist for a wind power firm that was just awarded a $135.8 million loan guarantee from the Department of Energy.
Read about the “ballot box stuffers,” “urban terrorists,” “gangsters” and others who make up “Obama’s favorite community organizing group,” in “Subversion Inc.”
Last month, the grant was finalized to build the 99 megawatt Granite Reliable wind project in New Hampshire’s Coos County, making it the state’s largest wind plant.
Seventy-five percent of the new wind project is owned by BAIF Granite Holdings, which was created earlier this year by Brookfield Renewable Power, a subsidiary of Brookfield Asset Management of New York.
Since 2009, Brookfield has been represented by the lobby firm Heather Podesta and Partners, LLC.
Podesta, a top financial bundler for Democrat politicians, is wife of lobbyist and art collector, Tony Podesta, who is the brother of John Podesta.

Obama’s State Department (run by Hillary Clinton) has contacted the family of al-Qaeda propagandist and recruiter Samir Khan to “express its condolences” to his family. Samir Khan a right hand man to Anwar al-Awlaki, was killed along with his jihadist buddy in an air strike in Yemen that took place on September 30.

“We stand at a fundamental crossroads for our country. You’re here because you know that in just 13 months, we’re going to make a choice that will impact our lives for decades to come … let’s not forget what it meant when my husband appointed those two brilliant Supreme Court justices … let’s not forget the impact that their decisions will have on our lives for decades to come.”
This was music to the ears of the small, affluent crowd of admirers who cheered and applauded. But to gun owners, Michelle Obama’s remarks should sound like a warning bell, alerting us to the danger ahead should Barack Obama win re-election and get the opportunity to alter the current make-up of the Supreme Court.

Quite a lot has been said about the Occupy Wall Street protesters both positive and negative but it’s unsurprising that Glenn Beck’s comments from yesterday quickly went viral. Out of everything that’s been said, warning that the protesters would “drag us out into the streets and kill us” kind of stood out. Today on his show, Beck spoke about the outcry over his comments. However, he didn’t budge, steadfastly standing by what he said. At first it seemed like the segment would take a different track as co-host Pat Gray began

Some have given voice to a growing fear among conservatives that the American left is more committed to achieving its policy goals than to working within the confines of the U.S. democratic system. This fear has always been dismissed…because in a free, democratic society the ends never justify the means.
Since the founding, this political consensus has underpinned the stability and political success of the American experiment. Democrats and Republicans may disagree, but, with one tragic exception, neither has been willing to suspend the Constitution, take up arms or call for a revolution because the other prevailed at the ballot box.
But that consensus seems to be fraying. As the polls have turned against them, many Democratic liberals are beginning to doubt the wisdom not only of allowing people to make their own decisions, but of letting voters have anything approaching a free hand in electing those who will lead them. Most people, after all, can’t be expected to know what or who is good for them. They make mistakes, and mistakes are not easily tolerated by an elite convinced that it knows best…
…The governor, Bev. Perdue of North Carolina, said very specifically, “I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years” and added, “I really hope someone can agree with me on that.” Without specifically agreeing that suspending the next election is viable, a lot of Mr. Obama’s “progressive” followers are of a mind with Ms. Perdue. Peter Orszag, Mr. Obama’s former head of the Office of Management and Budget, has criticized what he calls the “Civics 101 fairy tale about pure representative democracy” and said he thinks something should be done to develop a “new set of rules that would make legislative inertia less detrimental to our nation’s long-term health.”…

10-11-2011 • It’s EVERYWHERE!
All across the country, a grassroots effort is taking place for GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul. “Sign bomb” events at busy intersections are going on and people are showing their support for the Texas congressman.
Ron Paul supporters were at the intersection of US-41 and Gladiolus Monday. And more supporters are doing the same thing all over the country – picking intersections and overpasses to show their support.
The grassroots effort started online and word spread quickly.
The so-called sign-bombers say the signs were homemade and were created at sign making parties.
They say the goal of this is to build Paul’s support base throughout his campaign.
Of the 67 counties in Florida, 26 have the sign bomb events going on.
Ron Paul supporter Brian Harris says the congressman has an active support base and this shows the underdog still has a chance.
Last week, video evidence surfaced which proved that the Working Families Party, the SEIU, and ACORN were the driving forces behind the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement. Both ACORN and the SEIU have strong ties to the Obama administration.
For those that don’t know, evidence has surfaced that the Obama administration purposefully put guns in the hands of Mexican drug lords for the express purpose of trying to strip the Constitution of the Second Amendment.
Now Live Leak.com has posted evidence that the Working Families Party (WFP) is offering between $350 and $650 per week for people to participate in “direct action” on behalf of the WFP. What is direct action you ask? That is clever liberal spin to say that they are hiring people to participate in protests.
It won’t surprise me at all to find out that President Obama is orchestrating this faux crisis to further his radical agenda. Never let a crisis go to waste, right Mr. President?
How’s that for hope and change? Well at least change…

Secret orders forcing Google and Sonic to release a WikiLeaks volunteer’s email reveal the scale of US government snooping. Somewhere, a US government official is reading through a list of those who sent or received an email from Jacob Appelbaum, a 28-year-old computer science researcher at the University of Washington who volunteered for WikiLeaks. …
Appelbaum is a spokesman for Tor, a free internet anonymising software that helps people defend themselves against internet surveillance. He’s spent five years teaching activists around the world how to install and use the service to avoid being monitored by repressive governments. It’s exactly the sort of technology Secretary of State Hilary Clinton praised in her famous “Internet Freedom” speech in January 2010, when she promised US government support for the designers of technology that circumvented blocks or firewalls. Now, Appelbaum finds himself a target of his own government as a result of his friendship with Julian Assange and the fact WikiLeaks used the Tor software.
as the law stands, government officials don’t need a search warrant to access our digital data. Searching someone’s home requires a warrant that can only be obtained by proving probable cause, but digital searches require no such burden of proof. Instead, officials essentially “self-certify” …
Most people are not aware of the ease with which governments – free, open and so-called democratic – can access and peruse our private communications…
The fourth amendment of the US Constitution should protect against unwarranted search and seizure. Its inclusion in the Bill of Rights was a result of colonialists’ anger at abuse suffered at the hands of British officials using writs of assistance

Congressman Ron Paul has been placed third in the latest telling poll to emerge from the traditional first primary state of New Hampshire, while Rick Perry could only tie for fifth, seeing his numbers plummet to just 4%.
Harvard University Institute of Politics and New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College poll placed Paul in third with 13% of the vote, making him only one of three candidates to score in double digits.
Paul Maintains Top Tier Status In New Hampshire, Perry Plummets 111011poll
Following this weekend’s Values Voter Summit straw poll win, the New Hampshire poll once again reflects the fact that Paul is maintaining his status as a top tier candidate.
Perry, on the other hand, has slumped after entering the race and quickly polling as the front runner, leading Romney by double-digit margins according to some surveys.
Perry has now seemingly slipped to the lower tier levels inhabited by candidates like Huntsman, Bachmann and Santorum.
Perry has failed abysmally in the two debates he has so far been involved in, and tonight’s Washington Post/ Bloomberg debate at Dartmouth in New Hampshire, along with the next week’s CNN debate, will be seen as make or break events for his campaign.
According to ABC News, the seating arrangements for tonight’s debate have been based on the current standings in polls. ABC suggests that Cain will be seated next to Mitt Romney tonight, but makes no mention of where exactly Ron Paul will be situated in relation to Romney and Perry.
A d v e r t i s e m e n t
The Paul campaign will be airing a new ad during the debate tonight.
The 30 second spot, part of a seven figure ad push in the early primary states, is entitled simply “Secure”, and focuses on Paul’s pledge to shore up America’s borders.
“Ron Paul is the only Republican presidential candidate to put forth the notion that a strong national defense means ending destructive unconstitutional wars having an unclear connection to national security, ending costly state-building in regions where our presence is unwanted, and bringing hundreds of thousands of troops home to make America safer and cut overseas spending,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton.
“This ad will affirm Dr. Paul’s standing as the best candidate to face issues pertaining to national security all in the context of refocusing our efforts on protecting America’s borders and threats that might arrive on America’s soil, not foreign lands,” said Mr. Benton.
Watch the ad below:

Does Michelle really over-satiate herself on adipose-inducing feasts while lecturing kids to clean up their diets?
Yes, according to the most scientific study to date.
Obviously intending to counter Michelle’s critics, food writer Marian Burros, working for POLITICO, treated herself to lunch and/or dinner at “the 33 or more restaurants in the Washington area” where Michelle has grazed in Washington since her husband took office.
Can you imagine? Such diligence and sacrifice.
The result is a classic unintended scientific finding. Burros appears to have set out to prove that Mrs. Obama eats like an undernourished wild rabbit, citing the “vitriol” poured on her concerning her food habits by “anti-Obama blogs.”
In fact, Burros finds – though she doesn’t acknowledge it – that the excess weight Michelle is usually carrying around was not put there by a mysterious and unwelcome Act of God.
She eats poorly.

…..The Official View of the Whiskey Rebellion is that four counties of western Pennsylvania refused to pay an excise tax on whiskey that had been levied by proposal of the Secretary of Treasury Alexander Hamilton in the Spring of 1791, as part of his excise tax proposal for federal assumption of the public debts of the several states.
Western Pennsylvanians failed to pay the tax, this view says, until protests, demonstrations, and some roughing up of tax collectors in western Pennsylvania caused President Washington to call up a 13,000-man army in the summer and fall of 1794 to suppress the insurrection. A localized but dramatic challenge to federal tax-levying authority had been met and defeated. The forces of federal law and order were safe.
This Official View turns out to be dead wrong. In the first place, we must realize the depth of hatred of Americans for what was called “internal taxation” (in contrast to an “external tax” such as a tariff). Internal taxes meant that the hated tax man would be in your face and on your property, searching, examining your records and your life, and looting and destroying.
The most hated tax imposed by the British had been the Stamp Tax of 1765, on all internal documents and transactions; if the British had kept this detested tax, the American Revolution would have occurred a decade earlier, and enjoyed far greater support than it eventually received.
Americans, furthermore, had…..

A new video from the ‘Occupy DC’ event in Washington betrays how leftist agitators are busy trying to drown out any message that doesn’t correlate with their collectivist “consensus,” as the First Amendment is sabotaged when a freelance journalist is blocked from filming a public protest.
It seems as though some of the agitators who have latched on to the ‘Occupy’ movement are only happy with people expressing their First Amendment right if the participant completely agrees with their point of view.
Two foul-mouthed leftists attempt to block independent journalist Adam Kokesh from filming a public protest taking place in a public square, making inane arguments about the participants feeling threatened by appearing on camera, despite the fact that they are demonstrating in the middle of America’s capital city.
In reality, Kokesh’s previous videos, in which he documented how the protests were being misdirected by statist, Obama supporting hypocrites were the likely source of the agitators’ grievance with being filmed.
It seems the two individuals in the clip are uncomfortable with the prospect of their message reaching a wider audience, which is bizarre to say it’s supposed to be part of a mass protest movement.
The agitators didn’t want Kokesh filming their creepy “consensus” meeting, strange ritualistic get-togethers which have been characterized by cult-like chanting, weird hand signals and zombie-like collectivist mind control.
As Mike Adams, who has studied linguistics and psychology, points out in his article today, “The whole point of this experience is to eliminate the individual mind and train everyone to think, and say, and do exactly what they are told to do by a “leaderless leader” who is really a mind control manipulator.”
A d v e r t i s e m e n t
“Free-thinking individuals do not engage in this kind of behavior! If I had witnessed this in person, I would have shouted out, “You are all zombies!” at which point I’m sure I would probably need my zombie defender flamethrower to roast the mindless masses as they tried to swarm over me with their “one mind” attack.”
It is now clear that statist agitators and leftist lobby groups with direct ties to the Democratic Party and the Obama administration are busy trying to co-opt the Occupy Wall Street movement and anoint themselves as leaders of this so-called “leaderless” resistance.
That’s why agitators from MoveOn.org and other establishment-backed groups are deliberately trying to ostracize any activists who deviate from the collective borg hive and attempt to educate OWS protesters about the Federal Reserve, Ron Paul, or anything that actually poses a threat to the real epicenter of economic corruption.
Many of the genuine ‘Occupy’ demonstrators who started the movement are expressing their frustration about this tactic of subversion on the official Occupy Wall Street website.
Our own reporters and colleagues have also witnessed how the establishment left is trying to co-opt the demonstrations. Infowars reporter Derrin McBreen’s son, Kelen McBreen, encountered collectivists who had assumed leadership roles at the Occupy Austin event who told him that “Ron Paul signs are not welcome here,” after he held up a sign advocating the sound money policies of the Texan Congressman. These same individuals then ludicrously claimed that the Tea Party was attempting to infiltrate the ‘Occupy’ movement.
Watch the clip below in which WeAreChange San Antonio activist Matthew Medina exposes how MoveOn.org have dispatched their agitators to divide the protesters on grounds of race and gender, while acting as thought police in attempting to ring-fence what ideas can and cannot be aired.

Gunny G: NOW BLOG THIS !!!!!
While many people are led to believe that US support for Israel is driven by the American establishment and U.S. national interests (an analysis that benefits Israel and is particularly promoted by Israel partisans), the facts don’t support this theory. The reality is that for decades U.S. experts opposed Israel and its founding movement. They were simply outmaneuvered and eventually replaced.
Like many American policies, U.S. Middle East policies are driven by a special interest lobby. However, the Israel Lobby, as it is called today in the U.S.[i], consists of vastly more than what most people envision by the word “lobby.”
It is considerably more powerful, far more pervasive, and consistently more deceptive than any other. And even though the movement for Israel has been operating in the U.S. for over a hundred years, most Americans are completely unaware of this movement and its attendant ideology – a measure of its unique power over public knowledge.
The success of this movement to achieve its goals, partly due to the hidden nature of much of its activity, has been staggering. It has also been at almost unimaginable cost.
It has led to massive tragedy in the Middle East: a hundred year war of violence and loss; sacred land soaked in sorrow.
What is less widely known is how profoundly damaging this movement has been to the United States itself. It has targeted every sector of American society for manipulation; worked to involve Americans in tragic, unnecessary, and almost catastrophically costly wars; dominated Congress for decades; determined which candidates may be contenders for the U.S. presidency; promoted bigotry toward an entire population, religion and culture; caused Americans to be exposed to escalating risk; and then exaggerated this danger (while disguising its cause) to foment irrational fears that are enabling the dismemberment of some of our nation’s most fundamental freedoms and cherished principles………….
President Barack Obama, with the help of some Republicans who take their orders from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, is trying to pass a bill that will kill U.S. jobs, send more jobs overseas and make more Americans dependent on government handouts. That’s the Frances Fox Piven strategy Obama learned at a Socialist Party conference in New York while he was attending Columbia University.
This dangerous bill is the 1,413-page Korean-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (KORUS FTA), which is scheduled to come up soon in Congress. It’s hard to see how anyone who cares about America’s economic future could allow this job killer to become law, and any member of Congress who votes for it doesn’t deserve to be re-elected next year.
We are told KORUS will create more exports, but the principal exports will be American jobs. The Economic Policy Institute estimates that KORUS will cost us 159,000 jobs. The U.S. International Trade Commission also admits that KORUS will cause significant job losses. Those job losses will extend from low-end industries to electronic equipment manufacturing, where the victims will be Americans who were making an average wage of $30 an hour in 2008.
Some Members of Congress are trying to camouflage what they are doing by joining KORUS at the hip with a government job-training program. That’s an admission that KORUS will cost us jobs.
Obama claims that KORUS will create 70,000 low-paying in-sourced jobs (of Americans working for foreign employers). But even if that is true, which is doubtful, that’s less than half the well-paying jobs the U.S. will lose.
KORUS advocates a claim it will allow the U.S. to export 75,000 cars a year to South Korea. Compare that puny figure with the fact that Americans are buying over a million South Korean cars this year.
Among the many ways that South Korea puts up barriers against U.S. products is to subject any Korean brave enough to buy an American car to a discriminatory tax audit.
KORUS allows Korean products imported into the U.S. to have 65 percent non-South-Korean content. Nobody will know how much of that 65 percent will be made by slave labor in North Korea or China.
KORUS will give Korean corporations the right to challenge any U.S. law they think might limit their market access or profitability, including our prevailing wage laws. These trade agreements generally give foreigners the right to define free trade, which they do in ways that always disadvantage the U.S.
KORUS will make it impossible for us to prevent foreigners from taking over entire U.S. industries, which they can buy with the U.S. dollars they accumulate from our balance of trade deficit. KORUS will effectively nullify U.S. laws and regulations that restrict economic monopolies.
KORUS will enmesh us in a legal labyrinth called “investor-state arbitration.” That means subjecting our laws to review by foreign bureaucrats anytime we are accused of interfering with free trade.
The power “to regulate commerce with foreign nations” is one of the most important powers given to Congress by the U.S. Constitution. It is foolish and unconstitutional to turn any part of that power over to any tribunal of foreigners.
U.S. regulation of food imports is already under attack in the World Trade Organization, and KORUS will give Korea the right to limit our ability to regulate the quality of food imports. We will lose our ability to protect ourselves from contaminated and toxic foods.
Free trade has always been a one-way street, which is why the U.S. has built up an enormous trade deficit. The principal factor in creating this unfair trading system is that foreigners simply replace their tariffs with a Value Added Tax, and KORUS does nothing to remedy or reduce this gross unfairness.
KORUS allows South Korea to continue its 10 percent VAT. That means South Korea can subsidize its exports to the U.S. by 10 percent, called a VAT rebate, and impose a 10 percent tax on U.S. exports to South Korea, which obviously makes U.S. goods more expensive.
Any member of Congress who votes for this grossly anti-American agreement either doesn’t understand what is going on, or is serving the interests of the multinational corporations who want to move their plants to Asia where wages are less than $1 an hour.
Some people are calling KORUS the new NAFTA. Since NAFTA didn’t fulfill its promises and cost millions of American jobs, we can expect likewise from KORUS.
Fifty thousand Americans gave their lives in the 1950s to keep South Korea free, and we’ve maintained an expensive border patrol ever since to protect against Communist North Korea, so South Korea doesn’t have to provide its own defense. We shouldn’t give South Korea American jobs, too.

…..What possible reason could there be to keep Obama’s true identity under wraps after he’s no longer in office?
In the greatest identity hunt in modern times, all we have to go on in the ‘Who is Obama Game’ is the story he told himself in Dreams of My Father. In the book, thought to be ghost written by Obama close friend, unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, Obama waxes nostalgic about parents Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Senior.
In other words, we have only Obama’s version of who his parents were.
In pre-election spin, Dreams of My Father easily could have been a fabricated fairytale of Barack’s birth.
Now that he is universally known as “Obama the narcissist”, does it make sense that Obama, whose spin rests on so many legends, would dedicate his book to a father who could at best be described as an irresponsible deadbeat?
Did none of his loving Grannies keep family photo albums depicting young Barry with a high school sweetheart, or did he come from a culture where pictures aren’t the norm?
Will all of Barry’s blood relatives take secret kinship to the grave?
When the Obama presidential library gets built will it be identified by a huge bronze question mark on its roof?…..
WILL THE ENEMY WIN?

(Oct. 5, 2011) — Only the truth will save the United States.
There are anti-democratic and anti-American forces working aggressively inside the country to reduce American global influence, control that influence or simply bring down our republic.
These forces are promoting the interests of nations hostile to the United States, global financiers and radical Islam.
The work of these forces is primarily facilitated by corrupt or cowardly politicians, radical leftists and by useful idiots, who are oblivious to the fact that they are aiding and abetting American enemies, who will ultimately eradicate freedom.
The United States no longer has a government of the people, by the people and for the people.
The government has been hijacked by an oligarchy composed of a self-serving permanent political class, supported by an obsequious press and financed by and beholden to wealthy special interests…..
I have to say that I share most — if not all — the goals of the honest Left, which would be embodied in a constantly rising standard of living for the lowest economic classes. I often find myself watching Democracy Now for its antiwar, free-speech, and anti-death-penalty stances. But the big problem with the honest Left is their absolute and obstinate refusal to learn the most basic economic principles. The “Occupy Wall Street” movement is no different, and it is a real pity that all this energy and frustration can’t be put to use toward achieving their goal.
Many demands are being made, but sadly, if these were ever implemented, they would make problems worse by lowering the standard of living for all — especially for the poor! I will proceed to address some of the demands in plain English, hoping to reach out to them…..
The original charter of the drafters was to pen improvements to the existing Articles of Confederation. Instead, they chose to hijack the process and create a document which enslaved the nation. Federalist in the old parlance meant states rights and subsidiarity but the three authors of the fabled Federalist Papers supported everything but that. Their intent and commitment was to create a National government with the ability to make war on its constituent parts if these states failed to submit themselves to the central government….

The corrupted elite have three uncompromising goals for society and they have it all. Ultimate power, control of the money supply, and control of the people through unconstitutional mandates drawn up in congress, signed by a treasonous president, and codified by a politicized bought off judiciary. America has followed the same dead-end road as all previous societies. They are prosperity, corruption, police state, rebellion, (rejuvenation) or collapse. Must I point out where we are? Every society that has ever lived and died had that moment where their nation could have been salvaged. None so far has taken that redemptive course…………
According to sources at the October 8, 2011 Lake County Republican Dinner, State Assemblyman Jim Nielsen was the guest speaker. Comments made during his speech were so preposterous it made some members of the audience wonder if he was becoming delusional and questioned his mental health..
Where statist views are implemented, one will ultimately find one or more human individual Wizard of Oz’s pulling the strings and levers of power either in front of or behind the scenes. Sometimes the apparent Wizard you can see is just window dressing and distraction so you won’t notice the real Wizard.
The laws, trappings and institutions of such as state function as disguises, masks and distractions from the inescapable fact that behind the scenes, or even in front of the scenes in the case of an up-front tyrant, it is human individuals who are arrogating all rights to themselves and pulling all the strings.
Where murder is committed, people are encouraged and required to believe that it was done by the state and not by human individuals acting as such. This convenient untruth helps diffuse and confuse opposition to the activities of the human individual or group of human individuals actually ordering or carrying out the killings.
Doctrines of state immunity or sovereign immunity or official immunity are merely aspects of the disguising or diversionary function of most trappings of government in totalitarian or statist regimes. All such governments are nothing but arrogations of all rights and power by a few human individuals…..
Ron Paul on yet another dangerous precedent for dictatorship.
A Dangerous Precedent
by Ron Paul
Recently by Ron Paul: Against the Financial Power Elite
Listen to Ron Paul
According to the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution, Americans are never to be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. The Constitution is not some aspirational statement of values, allowing exceptions when convenient, but rather, it is the law of the land. It is the basis of our Republic and our principal bulwark against tyranny.
Last week’s assassination of two American citizens, Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan, is an outrage and a criminal act carried out by the President and his administration. If the law protecting us against government-sanctioned assassination can be voided when there is a “really bad American”, is there any meaning left to the rule of law in the United States? If, as we learned last week, a secret government committee, not subject to congressional oversight or judicial review, can now target certain Americans for assassination, under what moral authority do we presume to lecture the rest of the world about protecting human rights?………….
“There is no public record of the operations or decisions of the panel,” reporter Mark Hosenball wrote, “which is a subset of the White House‘s National Security Council. … Neither is there any law establishing its existence or setting out the rules by which it is supposed to operate.”
According to Reuters, “targeting recommendations are drawn up by a committee of mid-level National Security Council and agency officials. Their recommendations are then sent to the panel of NSC ‘principals,’ meaning Cabinet secretaries and intelligence unit chiefs, for approval.”
A “former official” told Hosenball that “one of the reasons for making senior officials principally responsible for nominating Americans for the target list was to ‘protect’ the president,” i.e., provide Obama legal cover under the thin veneer afforded by “plausible deniability.”………….

Obama Is Occupying America
Townhall.com ^ | October 11, 2011 | Herman Cain
Posted on Tuesday, October 11, 2011 7:11:26 AM by Kaslin
Rational people realize that President Obama’s policies have been an abysmal failure, which is why his only hope for re-election is to try to sow confusion among the voters, such as those populating “Occupy Wall Street.”
People often say the success of democracy depends on an informed electorate. Given his record, that’s the last strategy Obama can afford to embrace. Short of a fortuitous economic miracle falling into his lap, his only hope for re-election is that enough voters are misinformed.
From day one, Obama has been savaging George W. Bush for bequeathing him “the worst economy since the Great Depression.” But he hasn’t scapegoated Bush alone. He also impugned “fat cat bankers” on Wall Street and other evil corporations for “creating the mess” and for being its primary beneficiaries while everyone else was hurting. Conveniently, he didn’t point his accusing finger at the real culprit, the liberal affordable housing policy that he supported.
He leveraged his vague slander against Wall Street to bolster his case against free markets and “crony capitalism” and to lubricate the public for his statist remedies across the board.
His goal was to fundamentally change America — almost overnight — with an accelerated push toward socialism, all while insisting he was a “fierce advocate of the free market” and committed to the American ideal. He just loved capitalism, but it couldn’t possibly work when all the powerful and moneyed interests were loading the dice.
So he presented himself as the great reformer who would save capitalism, which was just an unsophisticated recycling of the case that history revisionists have argued since the 1930s and ’40s to rationalize Franklin D. Roosevelt’s socialist crusade. (One of my college history professors actually contended that FDR was the quintessential capitalist because he only expanded government to save capitalism.)
The scope of Obama’s undertaking has been breathtaking, as has been his level of deceit in promoting and implementing it. Borrowing from both the Saul Alinsky and Cloward-Piven models, he excused the real culprits and demonized false ones to saddle the nation with historically reckless spending programs.
He didn’t just give us his stimulus bill on the heels of the Troubled Asset Relief Program, which he decried despite having his fingerprints all over it. He loaded his omnibus spending bill with earmarks after promising he’d radically reduce them, took over auto companies, crammed through socialized medicine and pushed through a staggeringly problematic financial reform bill that further empowered the government to engage in the same types of tyranny that led to all this. Though he failed to pass his cap-and-trade measure, his Environmental Protection Agency has engaged in a systematic pattern of circumventing Congress to impose further smothering regulations on American businesses.
Despite his profound incompetence on many levels, Obama has been an adept propagandist who has blamed capitalism for problems caused and magnified by socialist remedies to justify further socialist solutions. He’s now doing the same thing all over again as his new socialist solutions are failing.
Obama not only eschews responsibility for his primary role in the nation’s economic and debt catastrophes but also is using class warfare to foment unrest in his malcontent leftist base and marshaling union thug muscle to attach a veneer of authenticity to Occupy Wall Street, a largely AstroTurf-like phenomenon. Indeed, Obama practically expressed common cause with the protesters at his recent presser and certainly did nothing to calm their ostensible fears.
To appreciate the surreal nature of Occupy Wall Street, you have to watch a few video interviews of some of the protesters and review a laundry list of their complaints. These misguided people are like probation violators castigating their probation officers for catering to their pleas for leniency.
They are taking up all the popular causes of liberalism as they protest against problems spawned by those very causes. They shake their fists at Wall Street, banks, corporations and the wealthy “1 percent,” which had little to do with our national nightmare. But they give a complete pass to government and even demand that it be given more power to further destroy what still does work in America.
Nothing illustrates their collective cluelessness more than their fulminating against the national debt while demanding a redoubling of the policies and programs that caused it and will make it immeasurably worse.
Obama is laughing all the way to the evil bank, hoping he can continue to capitalize on this very type of chaos and class envy to eke out re-election in 2012. Obama’s protesters are occupying Wall Street while he is occupying America.

Manager of all .com internet addresses seeks authority to terminate domains on government order without legal oversight
Paul Joseph Watson
Tuesday, October 11, 2011
The global authority over all .com domain names, VeriSign, is demanding the power to terminate websites deemed “abusive” when ordered to by government without a court order or any kind of oversight whatsoever.
VeriSign Demands Power To Kill Abusive Websites 997931 internet
“The company said today it wants to be able to enforce the “denial, cancellation or transfer of any registration” in any of a laundry list of scenarios where a domain is deemed to be “abusive,” reports the UK Register.
Not only is VeriSign seeking the power to kill websites when ordered to by governments, but also by “quasi-governmental agencies,” which could extend as far as lobbying organizations and special interests.
VeriSign has asked the domain name industry overseer ICANN to grant it the power to kill a .com or .net domain in order to comply with “applicable court orders, laws, government rules or requirements,” and believes the authority should be global to allow the company to shut down websites “without a court order” if any government agency merely requests it do so.
“The company has already helped law enforcement agencies in the US, such as the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, seize domains that were allegedly being used to sell counterfeit goods or facilitate online piracy, when the agency first obtained a court order,” states the report.
Indeed, the Department of Homeland Security has already seized website domains merely for linking to copyrighted material, despite the fact that such material isn’t even hosted on the website itself. DHS has also worked with VeriSign to terminate websites already deemed legal by courts in other countries.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation slammed the DHS website seizures as “Blunt instruments that cause unacceptable collateral damage to free speech rights.”
“ICE’s domain name seizures, including this one, are occurring without meaningful court oversight, with no chance for the targets to defend themselves before their websites are taken down and a highly cumbersome process for challenge afterwards,” said EFF Intellectual Property Director Corynne McSherry. “The government should stop these seizures until they comply with the law.”
A d v e r t i s e m e n t
Now VeriSign wants to seize even more draconian powers so it can work with governments to shut down “abusive” websites on a whim without any legal due process whatsoever.
This represents a massive threat to the last refuge of true free speech, the Internet, and follows in the footsteps of the Obama administration’s efforts to create an Internet kill switch under the guise of cybersecurity.
As we have documented, lawmakers like Senator Joe Lieberman have teamed up with DHS officials to push draconian legislation in an effort to mimic the Communist Chinese system of policing the Internet. During a CNN appearance last year, Lieberman said the goal was to empower the U.S. government with an Internet kill switch.
“Right now China, the government, can disconnect parts of its Internet in case of war and we need to have that here too,” Lieberman told CNN’s Candy Crowley.
However, China’s “war” is not against foreign terrorists or hackers, it’s against people who dare to use the Internet to express dissent against government atrocities or corruption. China’s system of Internet policing is about crushing freedom of speech and has nothing to do with legitimate security concerns.
Lieberman has already acted to shut down websites without a court order or any form of oversight when Amazon axed Wikileaks from its servers after being pressured to do so by Lieberman’s Senate Homeland Security Committee.
If Verisign is granted these sweeping new powers, governments all over the world, from the United Kingdom, to the U.S. to oppressive regimes in the third world, will have access to a feeding frenzy of web censorship which they could easily abuse to silence free speech and oversee political cover-ups.

‘OCCUPY BOSTON’ HOLDS RALLY FOR ACCUSED TERRORIST CHARGED WITH PLANNING ‘VIOLENT JIHAD’ AGAINST U.S.
Using the upcoming trial of jihadist Terak Mehana — who was arrested on federal terrorism charges — as a springboard, the “Occupy” movement has stretched beyond Wall Street and Washington to D.C. to the Rose Kennedy Greenway of Boston.
To add fuel to the fire, The Boston Herald reports that the protesters played host to Mehanna’s supporters, who are using the demonstration to draw attention to the accused terrorist’s trial.
Well, the group certainly seems to be accomplishing its mission. What the demonstration has also done, however, is draw correlation between the “Occupy” movements and those charged with conspiring to commit jihad — atrocious acts of murder — against fellow citizens on American soil and soldiers abroad.
The Tarek Mehanna Support Committee reportedly came to Occupy Boston’s tent city to spread the word that, according to them, the Muslim American pharmacist is merely a victim of an anti-Muslim crusade.
According to a bio in Time Federal authorities arrested then 27-year-old Mehanna in 2009 on charges that he conspired to provide material support to terrorists and planned to carry out a “violent jihad” by killing U.S. politicians, attacking American soldiers in Iraq and targeting customers at U.S. shopping malls.
