G20 leaders refuse to back the US demand that China stop expanding its money supply, which lowers the value of its currency. Uncle Sam does not like that because it makes cost of labor so low compared to the US Dollar that it pulls away American jobs, makes Chinese goods cheap, and increases the trade deficit. [It also impoverishes the Chinese working people, but that is not what concerns Washington. The US no longer enjoys the influence it had prior to destroying the value of its own currency in the same manner it now condemns China for doing.] Yahoo 2010 Nov 12 (Cached)
US: There is a looming crisis in teachers’ pension funds, which already have a $500 billion shortfall. State and city pension funds (estimated at $1 trillion) also are without adequate funds to cover their obligations. [Why is this important? Because the shortfall will be paid by taxpayers.]

“Inheritable genetic modification” is a technique to modify genes in embryos to create specific characteristics in children. [This is a dangerous technology that could accidentally alter or destroy the human race but, at present, it has no serious opposition and is well funded.] Wise Up Journal 2010 Nov 11 (Cached)
US: Former President Bush (a Republican) says he would have endorsed candidate Obama (a Democrat) if they had asked him to do so. [Who are “they”? Leaders of the Republican Party, of course. Let’s clarify this. The President of the United States does what he is told.] New American 2010 Nov 10 (Cached)
GM reports $2 billion 3rd quarter profit. The announcement coincides with its public offering of stock that it hopes will raise sufficient capital to repay its previous $50 billion bailout. [We sincerely hope that GM is not cooking the books to motivate investors to purchase its stock. Our skepticism, however, is well justified by past performance. We shall see.] Yahoo 2010 Nov 10 (Cached)
Ireland’s economic crisis flares as investors dump bonds, which means they refuse to lend more money to the government. This is a close parallel to what happened previously in Greece and what likely will happen soon throughout Europe and in the US. MyWay 2010 Nov 10 (Cached)
UK Aristocracy still owns a third of British land. Corporations, in which they are heavily invested, own even more. [Under socialism or any other form of collectivism, the elite retain control, receive subsidies, and legally avoid taxes.] Daily Mail 2010 Nov 10 (Cached)
EU announces plans to bring all energy use throughout the continent under its control. The justification, as usual, is the myth of global warming. [The world’s population increasingly is rejecting that myth, but politicians continue to perpetuate it because it is at the heart of their globalist agenda.]

Mystery missile trail seen off the coast of Southern California, but no one claims responsibility. Two days later, the military said it didn’t know what it was but reassured everyone it was just an airplane. [Let’s see it we have this right: They don’t know what it was but do know what it was not? Could be, but what kind of airplane starts from the ocean and shoots up into the sky? Or is that just an optical illusion? – Perhaps it’s an ad for our new DVD, What in the World Are They Spraying!] DailyMail 2010 Nov 9 (Cached)
US: Justice Department rules there will be no criminal charges against CIA employees who destroyed video evidence of torture. [They probably were promoted because, undoubtedly, they were following orders from above.] Reuters 2010 Nov 9 (Cached)
Chinese bond-rating agency downgrades US credit score from A+ to AA in response to the Fed’s recent announcement that it will create an additional $600 billion out of nothing to pay its debts. [The Chinese correctly foresee that this will greatly devalue the purchasing power of US Dollars, which means Uncle Sam intends to repay bond investors with worthless money. We believe the US will retaliate by pressuring American bond-rating agencies to downgrade the credit score of the Chinese government.] Bloomberg 2010 Nov 9 (Cached)
Big Pharma to begin putting microchips into drugs. When activated by stomach acid, they will transmit radio signals to a receiver worn by the patient and then retransmitted to doctors. No tests will be done to see if materials used in the microchips will have side-effects. Natural News 2010 Nov 9 (Cached)
Argentina: Research scientist and his colleagues are attacked by a mob on their way to make a public presentation showing that birth defects may be caused by Roundup, the well-known herbicide produced by Monsanto. Observers reported that the mob had ties to local officials and agribusiness bosses. Police made no attempt to prevent the attack which resulted in serious injury to several members of the delegation. TruthOut 2010 Nov 9 (Cached)
Orange County, Florida: Barber shops are raided by sheriff SWAT teams because they do not have a license to cut hair. It takes 1,200 hours of so-called instruction and thousands of dollars to get a license. 1 in every 3 Americans now need a license from the government to earn a living. Eventually, everyone will. [Do you think there is something wrong with this picture? It’s called collectivism.]

US: Government dismisses claims made by FDA scientists who said they were pressured into approving medical devices against their honest judgment. [The so-called investigators didn’t even contact some of those filing the complaint. Is anyone surprised? This usually happens when government investigates itself.] Yahoo 2010 Nov 9 (Cached)
US: Confidential Congressional document confirms that no one in the federal government ever checked to see if Obama was eligible to be President. Why not? Because, by law, no one was required to do so. WND 2010 Nov 8 (Cached)
US: ‘Smart’ meters that monitor energy usage and control appliances have reportedly caused illness from radiation in over 2000 people. Over two dozen California communities have banned them. Now the scramble is on to create new government guidelines that will declare them to be perfectly safe. [Our own take is that they probably are far less dangerous than cell phones, but the real issue is not their safety, but freedom to reject them for any reason.]

US: Three members of Congress vow to investigate ‘Climategate’ and the EPA’s plan to regulate carbon emissions. (It already has 18,000 pages of new carbon-reduction regulations.) 50 Congressmen also are challenging the global-warming myth, so the alarmists are organizing a media campaign to overcome them. LA Times 2010 Nov 8 (Cached)
US: Presidential Committee investigating Gulf oil spill says BP did not reduce safety measures to save money. Critics point out that the government will be a defendant in future lawsuits, so it is merely protecting itself and its friends at BP, Halliburton, and Transocean. [No one is looking at the possibility that safety measures were reduced for reasons other than money, such as deliberate destruction of marine life as an excuse for UN control over oceans, lakes, and rivers. Crisis engineering has become a major political tool in the modern era, but no leaders in either major party will ask about this.] Yahoo 2010 Nov 8 (Cached)
Pacific Rim countries, including the US, China, Japan, and Australia, meet to create a so-called “free trade” zone that represents 44% of global trade. [As with NAFTA and CAFTA, this will be the opposite of free trade. It will involve accepting the jurisdiction of the UN’s World Trade Organization and many new layers of trade regulation and control.] AP 2010 Nov 7 (Cached)
Chicago Climate Exchange (created to trade carbon units) closes in response to public opposition to cap-and-trade laws. Mainstream media fails to report this. [While the global warming myth has lost favor in public opinion, it continues unabated at state and local government levels.] Suite 101 2010 Nov 7 (Cached)
Venice, Louisiana, woman obtains a laboratory analysis of locally harvested shrimp and finds their shells and veins contain a toxic level of oil. Government testers have claimed that the shrimp are safe, but they conveniently removed the shells and veins prior to the tests.

Philadelphia Airport TSA bomb-appraisal officer was bored and planted cocaine-like powder on passengers as a practical joke. This occurred last January, but details were only forthcoming recently under the FOIA. Indy Posted 2010 Nov 6 (Cached)
Russian leaders are using the Internet to invite public comments on government policies. They claim it is a new trend toward “direct democracy.” [It is a ploy to allow people to vent their anger and think they participating in decision making when, in fact, the forums are rigged. Most politically incorrect commentary is filtered out, and vote tallies are manipulated by the leaders. It is a perfect tool for collectivists, so expect to see more of this in every country.]

ObamaCare insurance plan for those with pre-existing conditions fails because of high price ($400 tp $600 per month for those in their late 40s and 50s). The master planners expected 375,000 to enroll by end of year but, so far, only about 8,000 have done so. Posted Yahoo 2010 Nov 6 (Cached)

The Federal Reserve latest round of quantitative easing (creating $600 billion out of nothing to pay its debts) will further devalue the US Dollar. Countries that previously were willing to purchase US bonds now have lost interest. Increasingly, only the Fed is left to create more and more money, as the economy begins its final plunge to the bottom. Economic Collapse 2010 Nov 9 (Cached)
Here is an excellent documentary, called End of Liberty, produced by the National Inflation Association. It covers a wide range of topics relating to where America is headed, why famine and economic collapse now seem inevitable, and how to prepare for it. Posted YouTube 2010 Nov 6
Dr. David Janda explains how health care will be rationed in 2013 and how the law requires that older people will be denied treatment. (The formula is: cost of care divided by number of years the patient will benefit.) Another requirement is that all treatments will be determined by a federal medical board. If a doctor fails to follow that treatment, he will be fined $100,000 for the first offense. For a second offense, he will be imprisoned. And there is more. You must see this.
