US: Stock market plunged almost 1000 points in a matter of minutes on May 6th. This article lists 8 popular theories for why it happened. [Our opinion is that theories 3, 6, and 8 are correct – especially #8 which mentions the “plunge-protection team”. The market badly needed to contract to a realistic level and was attempting to do so until the government intervened to block the free-market from functioning.]

Ron Paul’s Audit-the-Fed bill is watered down at the last minute and, because all meaningful features have been removed, gets the approval of Obama.

In the video attached to this article, Ron Paul provides the details. MorphCity.com 2010 May 7 (Cached)
US: Freddie Mac asks for another $10.6 billion from the US Treasury and says it will need more later on. It already has taken over $50 billion from taxpayers. [As long as collectivists dominate the government, they will continue to fleece the public in the name of helping the public.] Yahoo News 2010 May 6 (Cached)
California students kicked off campus for wearing American-flag T-shirts and bandanas on Cinco de Mayo day. School administrators say they can wear them any other day, but to do so on a day that celebrates the heritage of Mexican students is “incendiary” and would lead to fights. [We don’t think wearing the American flag is in good taste at any time, but the issue here is the right to do so. Schools do not forbid the wearing of orange on St. Patrick’s Day lest the Irish will start a fight, so why should it be different for Cinco de Mayo? If wearing the American flag really would lead to fights, then the fault lies with those who start the fights, because that would reveal their lack of respect for the rights of others and for the symbol of America.] NBC 2010 May 6 (Cached)
US: President’s Cancer Panel says chemicals in commercial products now pose serious risk to health and calls for companies to prove safety of a chemical before it can be used. There now are over 80,000 chemicals used, but only 200 are regulated. Washington Post 2010 May 6 (Cached)
US: British Petroleum’s largest campaign donations went to Obama in attempts to influence US energy policy.

UK’s 2010 deficit has been estimated at 12% of its GDP, even higher than Greece and the highest of any EU state. [As Margaret Thatcher once said, “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.] Guardian 2010 May 5 (Cached)
| GOOD NEWS FROM MICHAEL BADNARIK
I just spoke with Michael Badnarik, former Presidential candidate on the Libertarian ticket and a member of the Freedom Force Hall of Honor. In December of last year, Michael had a severe heart attack. A week later, we heard that his prognosis was not good. Today, however, Michael says his health is 120%, and his stubbornness still is far above acceptable. He is back on the road delivering his famous seminar on the Constitution. He can be contacted at email@example.com.

New York police are using the recent failed terrorist bombing as justification for greatly expanding their surveillance-camera program. These cameras will monitor citizen activities and spot “suspicious behavior.” [One terrorist – assuming he is genuine – is caught without cameras; so thousands of cameras are installed to monitor law-abiding citizens forevermore. Collectivist logic at its best.] AFP 2010 May 4 (Cached)

Mayor of Phoenix wants the city to sue Arizona over its tough immigration law, but the City Attorney tells him he can’t do it. Why not? Because only the City Council can authorize law suits, and the Council supports the law. [It will be interesting to see if this mayor is re-elected.] CBOnline 2010 May 4 (Cached)
Jim Traficant, former Democrat Congressman from Ohio, has completed a 7-year prison sentence and now is running for his old seat in Congress as an Independent. He says he was framed by the Justice Department because he would not go along with Washington’s hidden agendas. He wants to replace the income tax with a 25% consumption tax, bring US troops home. and stop illegal immigration. [Unfortunately, he endorses most collectivist programs, but his stance on issues like these have made him a popular candidate.] LA Examiner 2010 May 4 (Cached)

US delegation at UN conference on international food regulation is attempting to block any requirement that genetically modified foods be identified as such on their labels.

US Taxpayers will fund a major portion of the Greek bailout, because the Federal Reserve provides 20% of the money for the IMF, the entity that will lend the money. This will be used to pay back the banks that made unwise loans to Greece previously – so they will be saved while taxpayers will absorb the losses. [If you have friends who still don’t think there are conspiracies in government, ask them to explain this.] Business Insider 2010 May 3 (Cached)

US: The federal Pension Protection Agency, which is supposed to protect America’s corporate retirement funds, says the number of failing funds has tripled since the recession. The agency, itself, has been charged with questionable accounting practices and issuing false reports to Congress. CFPI 2010 May 3 (Cached)
UK: A Christian preacher is imprisoned for saying in public that homosexuality is a sin. He was charged with using abusive or insulting language, contrary to the Public Order Act. [The issue is not if he “abused or insulted” anyone but if he has a right to speak what he believes even if others claim they are abused or insulted. If he had said that homosexuality was ordained by God, he would have “abused and insulted” many people, but would not be imprisoned – nor should he be. Such is the selective nature of justice under collectivism.]

North American bee populations have declined by one-third per year for the last 4 years and are approaching extinction. This could reduce the world food supply by almost half.

US: FDIC shuts down seven more banks at a cost of over $7 billion, bringing total closures to 64 so far this year. The agency expects to run out of money soon. [When that happens, it will turn to the US Treasury and the Federal Reserve to simply create money as needed, a process that passes the cost to the public through inflation and higher consumer prices.]

Los Angeles counterfeiting operation is discovered in a penthouse where stacks of counterfeit $100 bills were uncovered. Ironically, the penthouse has a direct view of the Federal Reserve building.

Greece is offered a bailout by EU and UN in exchange for its financial sovereignty and for austerity commitments. [When it fails to keep those commitments, the hapless nation will be virtually foreclosed and absorbed into the New World Order. Expect to see this same sequence in all nations in deep debt. Globalists have led those nations into economic crisis because, from the beginning, they have anticipated this end game.]
