Texas Congressman Ron Paul would win a presidential race against incumbent Barack Obama, according to a tracking poll released Monday by Rasmussen Reports.
According to polling figures published Monday by Rasmussen, a hypothetical two-person contest between President Obama and Republican Party hopeful Ron Paul would yield a victory for the Texas congressman. The statistics released by the group this week put Paul as the favorite over the current commander in chief by two percentage points, a 43-to-41 percent win, reports the agency.
Although Representative Paul has placed close to passing Obama in past polls, this marks the first time in a Rasmussen report that the congressman has statistically proven himself as the winner when pitted right against the president. Recent polling from Rasmussen also suggests that the only other candidate that could be considered the victor in a make-believe match-up with Obama right now would be former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, who also won in a recent poll by a two percentage point margin. Rasmussen has put Obama as the victor in a race against only Romney according to all other reports released since 2012 began.
Malaysia on Sunday deported a young Saudi journalist who is wanted in his home country over a Twitter post about the Prophet of Islam Mohammed (PBUH) that sparked calls for his execution, an official said.
Hamza Kashgari, who was detained in Malaysia during the week after fleeing Saudi Arabia, left the country in the custody of Saudi officials, according to a Malaysian government official who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Kashgari fled to Muslim-majority Malaysia after making comments on the micro-blogging site deemed insulting to Prophet Mohammed (PBUH), which fuelled a surge of outrage.
I love many things about you and hate others, and there are many things about you I don’t understand.
I won’t bow in front of you, I won’t kiss your hand. Instead, I will shake it as an equal…
Apple’s stock market value topped the $500 billion mark in early trading Wednesday, another record high for what was already the world’s most valuable company.
The half-trillion dollar valuation puts Apple in some extremely exclusive territory, making it one of the five most-valuable companies at any point in history. Only Microsoft, ExxonMobil, Cisco and General Electric have ever surpassed that mark.
Exxon did it most recently in late 2007, when oil prices were soaring. Microsoft, Cisco and GE reached half a trillion dollars in market capitalization in 1999 during the height of the tech bubble.
Microsoft was the only company ever to have a valuation of $600 billion. Its market cap now sits about $267 billion.
Apple’s valuation is now higher than the gross domestic product of Poland, Belgium, Sweden, Saudi Arabia, or Taiwan. (For more comparisons, check out this excellent blog: Things Apple is Worth More Than.)
It should be painfully obvious to everyone by now that it is time to get all of our kids out of the government schools.¬† The public school system in the United States has been dramatically declining for a long time, and in most areas of the country the public schools are open sewers at this point.¬† Yes, there are some U.S. public schools that are still very good and that do a decent job of preparing our young people for their adult lives.¬† But those good schools are the exception to the rule.¬† Hopefully the school shooting that just happened in Ohio will be a wake up call to millions of parents out there.¬† Drugs, sex and violence are rampant in American public schools today.¬† The “teachers” are endlessly pushing specific political and social agendas down the throats of our kids, and the skills that our children really need such as reading, writing and mathematics are often badly neglected.¬† Hopefully we can get more parents educated about what is really going on in these schools.¬† After all, why would any parents want to send their children into an environment that is going to be highly destructive for them for six to eight hours a day?
Sadly, “destructive” is not too hard a word to use for the environment in these public schools.¬† I went to public schools all my life, and they were absolutely horrible.¬† Unfortunately, they have gotten even worse since the time that I left them.
The following are 11 reasons to get your kids out of the government schools….
#1 You Could Be Arrested For Something That Your Child Does
Yes, you read that correctly.¬† If your child writes a story or draws a picture which a teacher or an administrator takes the wrong way, you could end up in jail.
A Kitchener father is angry at police after he was arrested at his child‚Äôs school and later strip-searched at the police station, all because his 4-year-old daughter drew a picture of a gun in class.
‚ÄúI‚Äôm picking up my kids and then, next thing you know, I‚Äôm locked up,‚ÄĚ Jessie Sansone, 26, said of his ordeal on Wednesday. ‚ÄúI was in shock. This is completely insane.‚ÄĚ
The school principal, police and child welfare officials, however, all stand by their actions. They say they had to investigate to determine whether there was a gun in Sansone‚Äôs house that children had access to.
#2 Your Child Could Be Arrested While At School For Just About Anything These Days
As I have written about previously, children all over the United States are being arrested by police in government school classrooms for some absolutely crazy things.¬† Just check out the following examples….
*A 13-year-old kid attending a public school in Albuquerque, New Mexico was recently arrested by police for burping in class.
*A 12-year-old girl at a school in Forest Hills, New York was marched out of her public school in handcuffs by police just because she doodled on her desk. “I love my friends Abby and Faith” was what she reportedly scribbled on her desk.
*When a little girl recently kissed a little boy at one Florida elementary school,¬† it was considered to be a “possible sex crime” and the police were called out.
#3 Your Child Might Be Bodily Harmed By Security Thugs
All over the nation, public schools students are being bodily injured (sometimes permanently) by school security thugs.¬† The following are a couple of examples….
*A security thug at one school in California actually fractured the arm of one 16-year-old girl because she left some crumbs on the floor after cleaning up some cake that she had spilled.
*In Allentown, Pennsylvania a 14-year-old girl was tasered in the groin area by a school security thug even though she had put up her hands in the air to surrender to him.
#4 Virtually Everything That Your Child Does At School Is Being Put Into A Database Somewhere
As I described in a previous article, public schools (in conjunction with the federal government) have become obsessed with watching, monitoring and recording the activities of our kids.
According to the New York Post, the Obama administration is planning a vast new database which will collect all sorts of information about our children.¬† Is this the kind of information that you want the federal government to keep track of?….
The administration wants this data to include much more than name, address and test scores. According to the National Data Collection Model, the government should collect information on health-care history, family income and family voting status. In its view, public schools offer a golden opportunity to mine reams of data from a captive audience.
#5 Our Kids Are Not Learning Anything In These Public Schools
As I have documented before, American public school students are being dumbed-down and millions of them end up dumb as a rock and yet still are able to graduate from high school somehow….
The following are some of the absolutely amazing results of a study conducted a few years ago by Common Core….
*Only 43 percent of all U.S. high school students knew that the Civil War was fought some time between 1850 and 1900.
*More than a quarter of all U.S. high school students thought that Christopher Columbus made his famous voyage across the Atlantic Ocean after the year 1750.
*Approximately a third of all U.S. high school students did not know that the Bill of Rights guarantees freedom of speech and freedom of religion.¬† (This is a topic that I touched on yesterday).
*Only 60 percent of all U.S. students knew that World War I was fought some time between 1900 and 1950.
Sadly, we are rapidly falling behind the rest of the globe.¬† At this point, 15-year-olds that attend U.S. public schools do not even rank in the top half of all¬†advanced nations¬†when it comes to¬†math¬†or science literacy.
#6 Our Public School Kids Are Being Forced To Take Large Numbers Of Vaccines
Many parents do not want dozens of toxic vaccines injected directly into the bloodstreams of their kids, but in many states today you will not be able to send your kids to the public schools if they don’t submit to the shots.
This is just another reason why all American families should pull their kids out of these government schools immediately.
#7 Exposed To Rampant Sexual Promiscuity
When you send your kid to a government school, you are sending them into an environment where they will be exposed to rampant sexual promiscuity on an endless basis.
When the kids around you are constantly talking about sex and joking about sex, it makes it nearly impossible to escape it.
What makes things even worse is that the “sex education” courses are becoming more detailed and more graphic than ever.¬† One example of this phenomenon was detailed in the New York Times….
IMAGINE you have a 10- or 11-year-old child, just entering a public middle school. How would you feel if, as part of a class ostensibly about the risk of sexually transmitted diseases, he and his classmates were given ‚Äúrisk cards‚ÄĚ that graphically named a variety of solitary and mutual sex acts? Or if, in another lesson, he was encouraged to disregard what you told him about sex, and to rely instead on teachers and health clinic staff members?
Maybe, as the novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald¬†suggested, the rich really are different. They‚Äôre more likely to behave badly, according to seven experiments that weighed the ethics of hundreds of people.
The ‚Äúupper class,‚ÄĚ as defined by the study, were more likely to break the law while driving, take candy from children, lie in negotiation, cheat to increase their odds of winning a prize and endorse unethical behavior at work, researchers reported today in the¬†Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Taken together, the experiments suggest at least some wealthier people ‚Äúperceive greed as positive and beneficial,‚ÄĚ probably as a result of education, personal independence and the resources they have to deal with potentially negative consequences, the authors wrote.
While the tests measured only ‚Äúminor infractions,‚ÄĚ that factor made the results ‚Äúeven more surprising,‚ÄĚ said¬†Paul Piff, a Ph.D. candidate in psychology at the¬†University of California, Berkeley, and a study author.
One experiment invited 195 adults recruited using¬†Craigslist¬†to play a game in which a computer ‚Äúrolled dice‚ÄĚ for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate. The numbers each participant rolled were the same; anyone self reporting a total higher than 12 was lying about their score. Those in wealthier classes were found to be more likely to fib, Piff said.
‚ÄúA $50 prize is a measly sum to people who make $250,000 a year,‚ÄĚ he said in a telephone interview. ‚ÄúSo why are they more inclined to cheat? For a person with lower socioeconomic status, that $50 would get you more, and the risks are small.‚ÄĚ
All eyes are on Greece these days, with hopes that the situation there can soon be resolved and global recovery kicked into high gear.
Sadly, those hopes are misguided claims Ben Davies, CEO of Hinde Capital. In fact, he says, Greece’s pain foreshadows the future awaiting the rest of the world.
It all comes down to simple math. Greece has increased its debts at a rate far faster than its income has grown. At some point, the debt became so large that the country could no longer service it.
What makes the rest of the PIIGS immune from a similar fate? Or Japan? Or the US? Or the OECD, in general?
Yes, Greece had a smaller, shakier economy and doesn’t have a central bank to print its own currency at will like Japan or the US. But even those countries with a printing press learn that after a certain point, expanding the money supply only complicates the problem of too much debt by inflating key economic input costs and dangerously weakening the currency.
The cold hard fact Greece is facing is that it’s now at the point where extraordinary losses need to be taken. The problem is, no one wants to take them. And all the¬†sturm und drang¬†being exhibited by Brussels, the ECB, sovereign debt holders, and other world leaders is nothing more than a frantic game of hot potato.
The one thing we can be confident of is that at some point, these losses will be taken. The market will eventually force it.
And the second thing we can predict is that we don’t know what will happen when they are taken. There is so much complexity in the counterparty exposure to Greece debt — as well as the much larger derivative exposure tied to this debt — that anything between “not much” and “worldwide financial conflagration” could be possible.
And that’s just Greece. As other larger countries begin to sink under the weight of their sovereign debts, the risks to the global financial system increasingly escalates. Which is why Ben Davies has a hard time finding a good home for investment capital other than gold.
Click the play button below to listen to Chris’ interview with Ben Davies (runtime 56m:40s):
Ben Davies ran trading for RBS Greenwich Capital in London, where he managed a macro portfolio. He started his career in 1995 trading in the credit fixed-income market at Credit Lyonnais, moving to IBJI as a fixed-income specialist, and finally Greenwich Capital in 1999. He graduated with a BSc from Loughborough University, where he majored in accounting and economics. Ben Davies and Mark Mahaffey, former colleagues from RBS Greenwich Capital, established Hinde Capital in early 2007, where they primarily focus on the precious metals and commodity sector.
As a proponent of legitimate free markets, I am always up for a little creative entrepreneurship.¬† However, there is a considerable difference between building productive markets, and engaging in monopolistic piracy.¬† Global conglomerates and the elites that operate them have long been familiar with the pirate‚Äôs life, and not the fun filled adventure-time rope swinging swashbuckling brand.¬† In fact, it was elitists like Sir Francis Drake, commissioned by the English monarchy, who embodied this disturbing covert bedlam.¬† We‚Äôre talking murder, mayhem, and blood-money, folks!¬† So, it should be of no surprise to anyone that the thieving mercantile swine of our era are returning to the high seas to plunder once again, only in a much more subversive and devious manner.
Over the last several years, World Bank has seen fit to insinuate itself into the environmental movement as a ‚Äúbastion‚ÄĚ of green ideology.¬† In reality, World Bank has long used the threats of environmental destabilization (some of them real, some of them fake) as tools for the centralization of resources into the hands of mega-corporations.¬† In fact, if one was to attempt to sum up exactly what it is that World Bank actually does in a single phrase, it would probably be ‚Äúresource domination‚ÄĚ.¬† This domination is achieved through the strict lending guidelines that sovereign countries have to commit to in order to attain financing from the supranational entity.
Like a greasy loan shark working for a hardboiled mob cartel, World Bank‚Äôs M.O. is to lend large capital packages (made with money or credit created out of thin air) which the target country and its government obviously cannot afford to pay back.¬† These loans often stipulate that the country relinquish control of its natural resources, the true wealth of the nation, over to international corporate bodies for ‚Äúmanagement‚ÄĚ.¬† Through this process, World Bank removes competition from a market and hands designated companies (globalist front-companies) the keys to the kingdom.
Environmental manipulation has been used in the past by World Bank as a cover for resource piracy.¬† Global corporations including Enron, Bechtel, GM, and Monsanto from the late 90‚Äôs onward have been handed coveted water rights to entire communities and nations under the guise of managing ‚Äúwater scarcity‚ÄĚ.¬† This control of the water supply has extended even to rainwater collection.¬† World Bank‚Äôs argument in the case of water privatization was that monetizing the resource would create ‚Äúincentives‚ÄĚ for populations to conserve water.¬† That is to say, the higher they could increase the cost of water, the more coveted it would become, and the more careful people would be when using it.¬† This feudalistic idea was expressed clearly in a World Water Council (founded with the help of the Vice President of World Bank) document entitled ‚ÄúThe Long Term Vision For Water, Life, And Environment‚ÄĚ:
In 1998 the World Water Forum expounded a need for control and regulation over the planet‚Äôs water supply.¬† This meeting was packed with top multinational corporations and commissioned by a viper‚Äôs nest of global elites, including:
-Dr Ismali Serageldin (Commission Chair), Vice President, World Bank, and Chair of Global Water Partnership
-Margaret Catley-Carlson, President, Population Council
-Gordon Conway, President, The Rockefeller Foundation
-Mohamed T. El-Ashry, Chair and CEO of the Global Environment Facility
-Howard Hjort, former Deputy Director, FAO
-Enriquo Iglesias, President, Inter-American Development Bank
-Yolanda Kababadse, President, World Conservation Union
-Jessica Mathews, President, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, USA
-Robert S. McNamara, Co-Chair, Global Coalition for Africa
-Maurice Strong, Chair, Earth Council, member of Commission on Global Governance, and a chief adviser in charge of the UN reform process
-Wilfred Thalwitz, former Senior VP, World Bank
-Jerome Mondo, Chair of the Supervisory Board, Suez Lyonnaise des Eaux
In March of 2000, the forum made the following statement:
‚ÄúWater is an economic good and its economic value should be recognized in the allocation of scarce water resources to competing uses. While this should not prevent people from meeting their basic needs for water services at affordable prices, the price for water must be set at a level that encourages conservation and wise use…‚ÄĚ
This methodology of artificially raising prices through the issuance of securities to enforce a particular environmentalist ideal, in the end, has NOTHING to do with protecting the environment.¬† Essentially, it creates the derivitization of natural resources that is the calling card of globalized tyranny.¬† Cap and Trade programs were designed to monetize air usage.¬† Energy derivatives were used by Enron to allow easier manipulation of electric and oil prices.¬† Water privatization was designed to corporatize a free flowing resource and create artificial scarcity.¬† And now, World Bank wants to apply the same con game to one of the last economic commons; the ocean.¬† The only beneficiaries in these schemes have always been large conglomerates, along with a smattering of stock investors who revel in the idea of erecting entire markets out of absolutely imaginary products with no real inherent value.
As with water privatization, the flood of massive bureaucracy in the guise of corporate management over oceanic usage will only create a mind boggling maze of red tape that will thwart all business interests except the largest.¬† This is entirely deliberate.
Not only does it cause prices to rise to levels beyond what the impoverished (a global majority) can pay for a commodity, but it also squeezes out small business owners whose only advantage was the level playing field of an open resource.¬† On the oceans of World Bank, a small fishing outfit will have no chance to make a living, because the permit process, new taxes, and new legal requirements, will empty their bank accounts before they ever get started, leaving only the big boys to ravage the seas at will, and legally, because they will have paid the exorbitant fees for the right to do so.
There is also a very good reason why Zoellick at the World Oceans Summit mentioned fishery issues so often, and why he is so keen on the idea of international regulations on their operations.
On dry land, companies like Monsanto are the slavemasters of food supply.¬† The centralization of national farming infrastructures has given these companies unrivaled power over how we eat, and thus, how most of the populace survives.¬† However, the ocean, an unparalleled food source, is still a decentralized region of production.¬† Anyone can fish it, almost anywhere, without having to ask permission from the government, or a private company.¬† This obviously does not sit well with World Bank, not because they fear overfishing, but because it provides a sovereign means of survival, allowing people to remain independent from the globalist system.
By utterly corporatizing resources that have through all of time been freely accessible to every human being, World Bank and the elitists they serve hope to build a framework for total centralization of all means of production and sustenance on Earth.¬† Does this sound like mad scientist stuff?¬† Absolutely.¬† Does that make it any less factual or terrifying?¬† Not a chance.
The real cleverness in using the environmental aspect of ocean management lay in the reality that there is, indeed, severe damage being done to many parts of the ocean‚Äôs ecosystems.¬† Cap and trade is based on the lie of anthropomorphic global warming and highly misrepresented data on the effects of CO2 (just ask any global warming enthusiast why NASA and the CRU have never released the source data for their experiments to prove that their claims are true).¬† The monetization of the air we breathe can be defeated in the minds of the general public for this reason.¬† But with the oceans, legitimate pollution is occurring.¬† This gives World Bank a much more tangible argument for supranational regulation in the name of environmentalism.¬† What people must realize, though, is that this regulation will have no effect on the deterioration of the seas.¬† In fact, it will likely hasten their destruction.
The international nature of how the oceans are utilized also opens the globalization door to World Bank.¬† When a supranational entity is given de facto governance over a region that is used by all sovereign countries, it gives that entity the ability to interfere in the decision making processes of those nations without any input or respect to the people who live within them.¬† For Americans, this means being susceptible to laws created by men far outside our borders who we cannot vote in, vote out, or chase down with our pitchforks when the voting is rigged.¬† This has always been the goal of globalists; to create the most dominant and unaccountable ruling body in history, while at the same time convincing the masses that we cannot live without it.
At bottom, centralization is the foundation for the collectivist fallacy; that there is a ‚Äúgreater good‚ÄĚ that must be maintained by the establishment.¬† This process makes the establishment indispensable in the minds of the public.¬† The elites in power today have chosen environmental dogma as their version of the ‚Äúgreater good‚ÄĚ, because the ‚Äúend of the world as we know‚ÄĚ can be used to rationalize almost any brand of despotic behavior, from food and water rationing as a method for social conditioning, to population control or even depletion in the name of ‚Äúsaving the planet‚ÄĚ.¬† Always beware the true motivations of any governing institution that seeks to assert itself as the purveyor of all that is ‚Äúbest‚ÄĚ for the people.¬† Such groups are rarely if ever what they seem‚Ä¶

-William Shakespeare, Troilus and Cressida
We are approaching an endgame, March 20 will mark the spot on your calendar, and while it is certainly not ‚Äúthe‚ÄĚ endgame; it is one of the continuum.¬† During the next twenty-three days we are going to get some answers to a number of questions that have been unanswered and a number of verdicts that will set the stage for the performance. In the end I suspect there is going to be a decision made by Germany whether to fund the Greek bond payment independently of everything else or just to let them go and destroy the grand myth. Germany will probably end up playing chicken with itself in an exceedingly bizarre pact with the Devil. In the first instance there is more and more evidence that the PSI will not go as hoped as many institutional investors do not take the bait and are not willing to roll-over for the good of Greece and Europe. Each time I hear some European politician speak about the obligations of money managers I am reminded that these people live far off the beaten path of reality. Somehow the ‚Äúresponsibility to shareholders,‚ÄĚ so prevalent in other conversations, finds itself left out in the woodshed when speaking about the Greek bailout. The boys speak from both sides of their mouths which is a common trick amongst these rascals and one that I have never attempted though they seem to have it down pat. Forbearance and fealty depend upon the subject at hand and Greece demands one covenant while corporate jurisprudence demands another. The often intoned phrase for bondholders, that this is the one and only time we will get spanked, rings with all of the truth of the Trojans proclaiming that they ‚ÄúCome in peace.‚ÄĚ¬† A horse tale history has taught us.
Aside from everything else the trick pony may well turn on a PSI deal that does not get accomplished and no time left to fix it. Consider the implications of a failed deal where Greece is over one hundred billion short and no time available to head back to all of the Parliaments to try to increase the bailout one more time. Realization may well turn to European panic and wails of desperation heard long into the night. I have discussed the ‚ÄúCollective Action Clause‚ÄĚ and the CDS trigger or not but what if the transaction just does not get done as 26% or more of the bond holders choose not to participate for whatever reasons. This scenario is looking increasingly likely and should be seriously contemplated now.
April 22 and ‚ÄúVive La Difference‚ÄĚ
Here we have the first French election with May 6 behind it for the run-off if needed. The man who would be Napoleon will end up swinging from the gates at the Bastille it appears. Sarkozy is not Bonaparte and the present ruler is about to be forced from the palace. To put it in perspective, what is about to occur is exactly like the American elections if the majority and the Presidency went to the Republicans; a total reversal in social policy and direction. There may be some wrong or right to it but I do not speak to those issues this morning but rather a recognition that reversal is coming. Besides the fallout for the French banks, evil-doers in Hollande‚Äôs assessment, the clawing and scratching between Germany and France is about to get ferocious. This will then have a marked impact on the direction of the European Union with Germany wanting to go right as the French turn to the left. I continue to think that one of the best shorts is France currently; bonds, equities, brie futures, the Chanel #5 June contracts, Victor Hugo memorabilia, Marie Antoinette tarts, room nights at the George V and Hermes scarves July contracts.
The German Dilemma
With an economy of just $3.2Tn versus the United States $14.3Tn Germany is trying to prop up a Eurozone that is more than one trillion dollars bigger than America. They just do not have the resources for the task they are undertaking and I predict serious consequences, eventually, from their efforts. Germany is ‚Äúbest of class‚ÄĚ and will be the last to go but they cannot evade the European recession in the end and I think it is only a matter of time and unfortunate decisions before the austerity demands made on so many will wind their way back home to those who made the demands. They used a timeline that was much too short for the job at hand and payment will eventually be forced upon them. They obviously get the joke where Eurobonds and other ploys of this nature average the economies of Europe and the standards of living over some period of time so that Germany, in the end, will suffer most as they have the furthest to fall. They have approached the G-20, China, the emerging market countries and all polite responses to the side; the results have been about zip. The Germans are running out of both time and money and Franz is squirming in the beer hall.
It is a fact that with each passing day, hour and minute that increasing numbers of citizens are awakening to the trouble we liberty-lovers face.¬† I base this conclusion on recent reflection, conversations with friends, acquaintances and family – trends in the news, comments to web-based media stories, whistleblowers, marches, the desperate tone of the paid-media-liars… an abbreviated list… so what?¬† As my cherished friend Bru asks:¬† “Who will listen?”¬† It has taken me years to understand the complexity of this seemingly simple question.¬† Why?
Perhaps a more personal question is “Why do I care?”¬† Why should anyone care?¬† Why should you, dear reader, care about the so-called “truth?”¬† Isn’t it more practical to dig in – mind our own affairs – keep a low profile – and ride the storm out?¬† The world will keep on turning – what can one person do?¬† Isn’t it folly to believe that any one of us can really make a difference – what’s the saying?….”You can’t fight city hall.”
Consider the war-propaganda poster below.¬† Notice who the finger is pointing at.¬† The poster begs “YOU” to sacrifice – possibly your life – for your country by joining the U.S. Army.¬† The INDIVIDUAL is targeted for one simple reason…
… that INDIVIDUALS – YOU – and ME …must be convinced to cooperate with those leading the nation because without our cooperation – the machine stops dead in its tracks.
YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS YOU NOW
As an individual – YOU CAN make a difference.¬† The trend toward tyranny America is presently following must be stopped NOW if you care about leaving this world a better place than you found it.
It doesn’t matter how insignificant you may think your actions are – discussing the issues facing us – helping awaken those you know to the steps we are taking toward tyranny.¬† Reminding your friends that history repeats – and sharing what you may know about previous tyrannical trends from the past – and how we are repeating that history.¬† Alerting others to false-flag attacks and “news” reports claiming some patsy intended to blow something up – while no evidence is presented.
You can tell your friends about truth telling websites. You may meet resistance – fine – back off – try again on someone who is ready to face the truth.
It is time to say “NO” to those in trusted positions of authority abusing our rights – when they were hired to protect those rights.
It is time to hand the pink-slips to the crooked politicians who tell stories during a campaign to get elected – then do whatever their highest bidder tells them when they get to office.
It is time to say “NO” to illegal orders that violate the Constitution.
It is time to blow the whistle when you know lies are being fed to the public.
It is your call – Liberty or Tyranny.¬† Not a difficult choice.
Other “secret societies” that are purportedly working towards the goal of the NWO are the¬†Freemasons¬†about whom abundant theories¬†revolve regarding cultural, religious and political influences; the Elders of Zion, of whom¬† the validity of a document alleged to be the minutes of a meeting to prepare the”protocols” is,still in debate,and ¬† the Society of the Elect, a Round Table group of elites that select the famous Rhodes scholarship¬†recipients.
Okay, enough history and supplemental links.
The New World Order itself would be considered a goal:¬† a one-world authoritarian government.¬† This would rule out nationalism, different forms of government, freedom of religion and individual social and property rights.
There would be two very defined groups of people:¬† ruling class and servant.¬† If your name happens to NOT be included in the group above, then guess which category you fall into?
Of course, gaining status as member of the serving class would mean that you’ve been able to avoid¬†becoming a victim of¬†depopulation – the mass eugenics project that is predicted and recommended on the Georgia Guidestones, a monument anonymously erected in 1980 in Elbert County, Georgia. This is only one example of a philosophy that recommends a world population reduction of 9/10¬† of the planet!!!
Currently, the United Nations is the politically correct face of the NWO.¬† The UN “peacekeepers” form the crux of a one-world military.¬† The UN has an incredibly deceitful public relations department that makes them seem like the good guys, the sheriffs of the world, but in reality, the acts of UN forces around the world are so horrific that it puts to shame any barbaric history one might dig up. Actions such as torture, widespread sexual abuse and rape¬†of populations under their protection, and pedophilia¬† show us that the UN is NOT a benevolent force, there for the good of the globe. Sadly, none of these incidents I have linked to are¬†theoretical – these are events that occurred, some with disturbing photos.
Summing things up, the New World Order would mean….
…….One government directing the actions of the entire planet.
…….Massive depopulation and involuntary sterilization.
…….A¬†planned economy with the global redistribution of wealth and resources.
When you read this stuff, some of it actually sounds reasonable.
Aren’t there too many people in the world, using up resources and sending us hurtling towards global disaster?
Don’t different religious beliefs cause most of the wars in the world?
Isn’t the world economy crumbling right before our very eyes?
Why can’t we just all join together and get along?
It almost makes you want to sit around a campfire and sing “Kumbaya”.
Until you think about……….
Who gets to decide who lives or dies? Who gets to be the ruling class and who gets to serve them? Who gets to decide what religion is “right”? And what if God disagrees? Who controls and condones the actions of the one-world military?
Go back and read today’s headlines with the information you’ve just read in the back of your mind.¬† Read about the wars being started over oil.¬† Contemplate the vast array of toxins being introduced into our food supply via GMO frankenfoods and into our air supply via chemtrails.¬† Think about all of the vaccinations that are literally forced upon humankind.¬† Study the names in the news and ponder who the same ones are in control of the media, the banking industry and politics.
When does the NWO evolve from conspiracy theory to conspiracy fact?
The impression that I took away from the meetings with these leaders was that we are not headed towards World War III. We are now fighting it. ¬†And it’s not being fought in the traditional way. This war is being fought on the spiritual level, and also not yet with guns. The guns are the financial instruments.
Speculation has long abounded that overuse of antibiotics by factory farmers has been a major contributing factor in the development of so-called ‚Äúsuperbugs‚ÄĚ like MRSA or Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Now, according to¬†a report from¬†Mother Jones, there is scientific proof.
According to¬†a paper¬†in the American Society of Microbiology‚Äôs newsletter¬†mBio, researchers have sequenced the genomes of 88 closely-related strains of Staphylococcus aureus. They have concluded that one ‚Äúparticularly nasty‚ÄĚ strain, CC398, began as a fairly harmless human bacterium known as MSSA, but evolved after colonizing the systems of pigs, chickens and other livestock.
Inside the animals, the bacterial strain was bombarded by an array of broad-spectrum antibiotics, drugs commonly used by factory farmers to reduce infections and disease in animals kept in close quarters. According to¬†mBio, this allowed the germs to become resistant to antibiotics like tetracycline and methicillin, as well as allowing the microorganisms to become ‚Äúbidirectional,‚ÄĚ meaning that they can freely be transmitted between humans and livestock.
The Boy Scout motto ‚Äď Be Prepared ‚Äď is probably considered evidence of terrorist (or at least¬†extremist) inclinations in the USSA Today. I won‚Äôt even get into the parts about hiking in the woods, carrying knives and practicing ‚Äúsurvival‚ÄĚ strategies. In my day, we even had a merit badge for marksmanship with a¬†gun.
But, weekend camping expeditions aside, how to be prepared¬†in situ? In your¬†home? For when the SHTF?
Guns (and ammo) are obviously good things to have. And every person who wants to be prepared for a possible fecal-flinging scenario ought to have them. So also food supplies and medicine. Check.
Then I got to thinking about related stuff that is arguably just as essential which some be prepared people may not have taken into consideration ‚Äď but really ought to.
A heat source, for example.
Not just for cooking, either. What if¬† the SHTF in¬†winter? If the utilities go down, and stay down, how will you keep from freezing? How will you keep the¬†pipes¬†in your house from bursting? Imagine three or four months, potentially, of freezing winter weather on your own. Some people heat with natural gas, propane or oil ‚Äď the latter two of which, not being dependent upon a grid pipeline, can supply you for a few months if need be. I however prefer old school.
For one, it is free (provided you have some land ‚Äď which you ought to, if you took steps to Be Prepared) and doesn‚Äôt require you to leave your place to obtain it ‚Äď or even to deal with the outside world at all. For two, it is simple and (if you get a good wood stove/insert) extremely efficient. You might even look into something that‚Äôs very popular in my neck of the woods: An outdoor wood stove. It heats your home¬†andyour water, too. The other advantage to these puppies is you only have to feed them wood twice a day. They‚Äôll slow-burn all night. And they run on other fuels, too ‚Äď such as pellets. (See¬†here¬†for an example.)
Provided you planned ahead and bought a least one top-drawer chain saw (I recommend Stihl) stored up a few spare chains and a sharpening tool for it, plus plenty of chain lube and treated gas (two five gallon jugs will last along¬†time) you‚Äôre covered ‚Äď and won‚Äôt freeze or have to eat cold food.¬† Since we bugged out to the Deep Country, I have made it policy to cut and split wood at least one year in advance. So right now, I am working on wood for the winter of 2013-2014. I already have the winter of 2012/2013 covered.
You should, too.
Next, illumination. Lighting that‚Äôs independent of the grid.
Ordinary candles are ok (and cozy) for a normal, short-lived blackout. But what about a more severe scenario? Regular candles don‚Äôt last very long ‚Äď or those that do (like those nice-smelling Yankee candles your wife probably likes) cost a fortune. Propane/gas lights (i.e., camping lights) are not a¬† good idea indoors. I bought a case of 100 hour (four days‚Äô continuous use each) liquid paraffin, smokeless and ordorless emergency candles. Used prudently to provide a few hours of necessary light at night, a case of these should keep you out of the dark for six months or more. If you shop around, you shoud be able to find them for about $5 each ‚Äď which is a deal compared with something like those $25 a piece Yankee candles. (See¬†here¬†for some more details about this.)
Next item, dihydrogen monoxide. You know‚Ä¶¬†water. If the poo flies, you will need a steady source of safe water. In suburbia, where people are dependent on the grid, the water could be turned off ‚Äď or worse, contaminated.
While hardly discussed broadly in the mainstream media, the top news of the past 24 hours without doubt is that in addition to losing its fiscal sovereignty, and numerous other things, the Greek population is¬†about to lose its gold¬†in a perfectly legitimate fashion, following amendments to the country’s constitution by unelected banker technocrats, who will make it legal for Greek creditors – read insolvent European banks – to plunder the Greek gold which at last check amounts to 111.6 tonnes according to the WGC. And so we come full circle to what the ultimate goal of banker intervention in the European periphery is – nothing short of full gold confiscation. So just how much gold will be pillaged by the banker oligarchy (it is amusing how many websites believe said gold is sacrosanct by regional national banks, and thus the EUR is such a stronger currency as it has all this ‘gold backing’ – hint: it doesn’t, as all the gold is about to be transferred to non-extradition countries)? As the¬†World Gold Council¬†shows in its latest update, between all the PIIGS, who will with 100% certainty suffer the same fate as Greece (which has shown that unlike during World War 2, it is perfectly willing to turn over and do nothing) there is 3234 tonnes of gold to be plundered. And likely more as further constitutional amendments will likely make the confiscation of private gold the next big step. how much does this amount to? At today’s prices this is just shy of $185 billion. Of course by the time the market grasps what is going on the spot price of the yellow metal will be far, far higher. Or, potentially far, far lower and totally fixed as the open gold market is eventually done away with entirely in a reversion to FDR gold confiscation and price fixing days.
The chart below shows total gold holdings for the top 40 countries. Little Ireland is off the chart with just 6 tonnes of gold.
Daniel Ameduri reporting for CrushtheStreet.com interviews residents of Southern California in an effort to determine, as the mainstream media continues to report, if gold has actually reached bubble levels.
Gold prices today are often compared to the bubble tops of 1980, but given that very few people have purchased gold, the current climate suggests we’re nowhere near a point where the price has gone so parabolic that it will imminently collapse.
It seems that, despite the broken state of our economy, not many people have realized that inflation and government instability are a threat to their wealth.
The evidence suggests there is no bubble – not yet, at least.
Gates told an audience of more than 2,000 that if we could register every worldwide birth on a cell phone, we could ensure that children receive the proper vaccines. He also said the key to controlling population growth is to save the lives of children under 5; and the next big thing in technology is robots.
Gates said computing technology has been great for health care, and there are plenty of opportunities to use the cell phone in clinic settings. Although he noted that some places which need mhealth technology the most may not be able to fully benefit from it.
‚ÄúWe have to approach these things with some humility,‚ÄĚ he said. ‚ÄúThere‚Äôs not Internet connections back there. Often [patients are too sick] for some cell phone thing to do something for them.‚ÄĚ
Gates said he‚Äôd like to see a birth registration system, and because it‚Äôs a new technology, ‚Äúwe should let 1,000 new ideas blossom.‚ÄĚ
We thought we had seen it all. It turns out we hadn’t. The country that gave the world the alphabet, philosophy, and plates with funny sexually ambiguous drawings on them, has outdone itself again.¬†Because beginning this month some Greeks will have to pay for the privilege of having a job. From the¬†Press Project:
Salary cutbacks (called “unified payroll”) for contract workers at the public sector set to be finalized today. Cuts to be valid retroactively since november 2011. Expected result: Up to 64.000 people will work without salary this month,¬†or even be asked to return money. Amongst them 21.000 teachers, 13.000 municipal employees and 30.000 civil servants.
Needless to say the BLS is salivating at the prospect of US workers paying for a job, as this will immediately allow them to double count said person’s role in the employed part of the labor force (which incidentally has shrunk by 1% in the time it took to write this), as the money said “worker” pays can be used in the BLS hedonic models to theoretically hire many more people courtesy of fractional reserve lending. Now if only¬†everyone¬†would agree to pay for the joy of playing Solitaire 9 to 5, then all the world’s problems would be solved.
Chris Christie appeared on the Piers Morgan show and the topic turned to Warren Buffett‚Äôs calls for higher taxes on the wealthy. Christie was having none of it, and said Buffett should just ‚Äúwrite a check and shut up.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúHe should just write a check and shut up,‚ÄĚ Christie said Tuesday on CNN‚Äôs ‚ÄúPiers Morgan Tonight.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúReally, and just contribute. The fact of the matter is that I‚Äôm tired of hearing about it. If he wants to give the government more money, he‚Äôs got the ability to write a check ‚ÄĒ go ahead and write it.
‚ÄúI‚Äôm so tired of talking about Warren Buffett,‚ÄĚ Christie said, interrupting Morgan. ‚ÄúWhat are you going to bring up next, his secretary? I mean, this is the old song.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúYou haven‚Äôt even heard the question,‚ÄĚ Morgan exclaimed.
‚ÄúI know the question,‚ÄĚ Christie replied. ‚ÄúDo you really think Warren Buffett needs as much attention from the government as the most vulnerable ‚Ä¶ since I got the question right, I‚Äôm not answering the question, how about that. That‚Äôs my gift for getting the question right.‚ÄĚ
Christie also said the tax code should be fair to everyone.
The former chief of staff to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Saturday an Israeli strike against Iran‚Äôs nuclear facilities is ‚Äúimminent.‚ÄĚ
Naftali Bennett appeared on Fox News‚Äô ‚ÄúHuckabee‚ÄĚ and painted a dire picture of a world with a nuclear Iran, saying Israel will not hesitate to take action if necessary ‚ÄĒ and that time is of the essence.
‚ÄúWe‚Äôre at the very last moment. This is going to be the first time in history that a maniacal, radical Islamic regime will acquire a nuclear weapon,‚ÄĚ he said. ‚ÄúThe day after they have a bomb will be a different day for the entire world.‚ÄĚ
In yet another curtsy to the¬†politically correct orthodoxy, President Barack Obama’s White House plans to tinker with federal¬†police curriculums¬†for¬†counterterrorism training¬†classes, according to a Beltway public-interest organization.
The first bit of “revamping” is the removal of all material that groups, such as the¬†Council on American Islamic Relations¬†, or CAIR,¬†find offensive or containing a “negative” image¬†¬†of Muslims.
It‚Äôs a government-wide call to end Islamophobia, according to a blog by a Washington, DC-based¬†watchdog group¬†that investigates, exposes and prosecutes government corruption.
A few months after the Obama White House ordered an investigation of government counterterrorism training, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has destroyed instructional material that characterizes Muslims as prone to violence or terrorism, according to the Judicial Watch blog.
So far 700 pages of documents from about 300 presentations given to agents since the 2001 terrorist attacks have been purged, according to a¬†new report¬†published this week. The White House order came after the same publication reported in late November that the FBI, Department of Justice (DOJ) and Pentagon taught employees that mainstream Muslims embrace violence and compared the Islamic religion to the death star.
“The goal, evidently, is to banish any material that could be viewed as offensive to Muslims,” said the JW blog.
Talk about pain at the pump! Some Florida drivers are spending nearly $6 a gallon to fill up their gas tanks.
According to GasBuddy.com, motorists are shelling out $5.89 for a gallon of regular gas at a Shell station in Lake Buena Vista, topping out at $5.99 a gallon for premium. It doesn‚Äôt get better at a Suncoast Energy station in Orlando, where drivers are paying $5.79 for a gallon of regular.
‚ÄúPrices over in the Disney World area are much higher than any other place in Florida,‚ÄĚ Jessica Brady, AAA spokeswoman, told CBS Tampa, adding that people regularly complain about gas prices in that area.
The Sunshine State is opening up its wallet, paying an average of $3.67 a gallon of unleaded gas, 12 cents more than the national average. And it‚Äôs only expected to go up.
(Editor’s Note: The very same politicians who have made it a mission in their lives to disarm Americans and circumvent the 2nd amendment are now talking about arming rebels in Syria in an effort to undermine the country’s leadership and to purportedly help liberate yet another nation of enslaved citizens.)
The¬†United States¬†appeared to open the door to eventually arming Syria’s opposition, saying that if a political solution to the crisis was impossible it might have to consider other options.
The comments, made by officials at both the¬†White House¬†and the U.S. State Department on Tuesday, marked a shift in emphasis by Washington, which so far has stressed a policy of not arming the opposition and has said little about alternatives.
In¬†Syria¬†on Tuesday, activists said President Bashar al-Assad’s forces killed more than 60 people in attacks on villages and an artillery barrage on the restive city of Homs. The Red Cross called for daily ceasefires to allow in urgently needed aid.
“We still believe that a political solution is what’s needed in Syria,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said.
“We don’t want to take actions that would contribute to the further militarisation of Syria, because that could take the country down a dangerous path. But we don’t rule out additional measures.”
Bear with me here dear reader, I‚Äôm admittedly about to venture into tin foil hat territory, but given that it‚Äôs Presidents‚Äô Day and Barack Obama is still sitting in the White House, this trip to Oz may be warranted.
I have made the argument before that a coup took place in the United States on September 14, 2001. A successful coup ‚Äď against our Constitutional form of government ‚Äď all under the pretense of responding to the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
On September 11, 2001, the government declared a ‚Äėstate of emergency‚Äô, and on September 14, 2001 that state of emergency was¬†formalized in writing, by George W. Bush.
‚ÄúA national emergency exists by reason of the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center, New York, New York, and the Pentagon, and the continuing and immediate threat of further attacks on the United States.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, I hereby declare that the national emergency has existed since September 11, 2001 . . . .‚ÄĚ
Perhaps more frightening, Continuity of Government plans (COG) were implemented on 9/11/01 as well…
