[I may have just coined a term (rare for me): “Trading Traitors”] “The Senate is filled with ‘TRADING TRAITORS’ (except for courageous Rand Paul and a few others)” — Treasonously destroying America from within while insider-trading stocks

“The Senate is filled with trading traitors

In August, the Senate struck down a bill overwhelmingly passed by the House that would have protected the electrical grid from the very real threat of an EMP attack that would literally take out America:

Our senators traitors? Senate dumps strategy to prevent EMP damage

And now this:

Senate Rejects Amendment to ‘Indefinite Detention’ Bill

The bill is laid out here:

Alex Jones: Senate wants martial law in America! — This bill gives the President authority to indefinitely imprison American citizens without a court hearing, both domestically and abroad — First came the ‘Patriot’ Act; then came the naked body scanners; now snatch & grab with indefinite detention?!!

And all of this while they’re trading stocks:

’60 Minutes’ Blows The Lid Off Congressional Insider Trading
Zeke Miller | Nov. 14, 2011, 7:52 AM
Members of Congress can legally make trades on non-public information they obtain during their official duties, CBS News’ ’60 Minutes’ reported on Sunday night.

Branded ‘honest graft,’ lawmakers can use market-moving information that they learn in congressional committees to trade on the stock market — actions that likely would carry stiff jail and civil penalties if they did not hold public office.

In one example, Steve Kroft reports that Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-AL), now the chair of the House Financial Services Committee, bet against the market in the days before the 2008 financial crisis hit — after getting ‘apocalyptic briefings’ from Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and then-Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson.

Kroft also raises questions about the trading patterns of Speaker of the House John Boehner and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — and the real estate purchases of other senators and representatives.

The report relies heavily on the work of Peter Schweizer, a fellow at the conservative Hoover Institution, whose work ’60 Minutes’ independently verified.

“This is a venture opportunity,” Schweizer told ’60 Minutes.’ “This is an opportunity to leverage your position in public service and use that position to enrich yourself, your friends, and your family.”

Pelosi fires back at report on ‘insider trading’
CBS raises questions of conflict of interest among Republicans and Democrats alike in Congress
msnbc.com and NBC News
updated 41 minutes ago

A television report that questioned whether members of Congress are making investment decisions based on insider information drew a heated response from former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, one of those highlighted.

A report on CBS’ “60 minutes” on Sunday said Pelosi was among several lawmakers — including Republicans such as House Speaker John Boehner — who had profited from transactions that raised the possibility of conflicts of interest.

Congress: Trading stock on inside information?
(CBS News)

Washington, D.C. is a town that runs on inside information – but should our elected officials be able to use that information to pad their own pockets? As Steve Kroft reports, members of Congress and their aides have regular access to powerful political intelligence, and many have made well-timed stock market trades in the very industries they regulate. For now, the practice is perfectly legal, but some say it’s time for the law to change.

The following is a script of “Insiders” which aired on Nov. 13, 2011. Steve Kroft is correspondent, Ira Rosen and Gabrielle Schonder, producers.

Patrice O’Neal.Patrice O’Neal, a stand-up comedian who appeared in several films and made regular appearances on the The Opie & Anthony Show, has passed away at the age of 41 after suffering a stroke last month. He was a diabetic.

His agent, Matt Frost, released the following statement:

It is with terrible sadness we must report that Patrice O’Neal has passed away this morning at 7:00am due to the complications of the stroke he suffered on October 19. Many of us have lost a close and loved friend; all of us have lost a true comic genius. His mother, who was also his best friend, was at his side. Patrice is survived by his wife, Vondecarlo; his step daughter Aymilyon, sister Zinder, and his mother Georgia. The family wishes to thank all of the fans and friends who have expressed an outpouring of love and support for Patrice these past weeks. We ask that you please respect the family’s request for privacy at this difficult time.


Patrice O’Neal: Racial SEPARATION, HATRED helps the NWO! | We need to COME TOGETHER at the bottom of this pyramid | This country is NOT TEACHING HISTORY (where the banks came from, etc.) | WHO’S WORSE? The PEOPLE AT THE TOP… or the AVERAGE CITIZEN who helps these dudes DESTROY OTHER PEOPLE?

For black people and slavery, all we got, really is this vague [color] which helps out the New World Order, because black people can’t really join forces completely heartfelt with white people, because in this country white people are always presented as our villain. Or the color white is like having Hitler’s mustache. It is our evil. But we need to come together at the bottom of this pyramid, at this feudal system that they’re putting together. We need to come together and really go, “man, it’s really us; even though, the guys at the top look like you.’

But I think if there is any diabolical plot, that’s in there just as much as to keep us separate, racially. … The top [of the pyramid] needs to be exposed, but the bottom, we’re so entrenched in the hatred, basically, for each other.”

I was reading a thread on Facebook, and realized I haven’t yet addressed this important topic.

The discussion is often about whether prayer should be allowed in schools, but to me the bigger issue is whether we should even have federally controlled schools, which is unconstitutional.

And I have long thought that whether public prayer is allowed or not is minor compared to teaching the religious belief in evolution as fact, which can actually be disproved with facts; though, these facts aren’t taught. Teaching evolution as fact teaches children that the book of Genesis is erroneous, and we’re just like animals — so ~“why not just do it like they do it on the Discovery Channel” — which sex education helps happen.

As the war over education reform — Goals 2000, school-to-work, and “outcome-based education” — rages on, the time is more than ripe to ask ourselves, “Are public schools constitutional?”

Looking at the United States Constitution, no provision is made for education, but the Constitution does instruct that … “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” (Tenth Amendment) In other words, education is reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Why, then, do we have a cabinet level United States Department of Education (US DOE)? Does this not violate the U.S. Constitution? In a word, “yes.” The US DOE was established under the Carter Administration as a political payoff to the teacher unions for their support of Jimmy Carter for president.


For example, humanists (Darwinists) believe in evolution while Christians believe in creationism. Is evolution being taught in the public schools? Yes, it is and has been for many years. Is the religion of humanism being taught in the public schools? Humanism is the religious basis of education in the public schools of today.

Newt Gingrich: Mr. New World Order

Establishment throws its weight behind the ultimate RINO globalist

Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones
Prison Planet.com
Monday, November 28, 2011

Desperate to derail Ron Paul’s momentum in New Hampshire, the key early primary state in which polls show Paul has a very real chance of winning, the establishment has thrown its weight behind Newt Gingrich, the ultimate RINO globalist who in reality is about as conservative as Mao Tse-tung.

Newt Gingrich: Mr. New World Order newt yodels

With the campaigns of Mitt Romney and Rick Perry collapsing, the editorial board of the New Hampshire Union Leader chose to endorse Gingrich on Sunday, a move that the mainstream press immediately hailed as all-important, attempting to bestow kingmaker status on a relatively irrelevant newspaper in the grand scheme of things.

The anointment of Gingrich as Republican frontrunner is just the latest desperate bid to fool voters into supporting anyone other than Ron Paul. From Perry, to Romney, to Cain – the establishment has attempted to crown all of them as top dog – failing every time as each campaign subsequently crashes and burns.

Gingrich will inevitably follow suit because he has more skeletons in the closet than a halloween costume shop. Newt Gingrich is Mr. New World Order – a committed globalist who has publicly made clear his contempt for American sovereignty and freedom on a plethora of occasions, not least when he joined forces with Nancy Pelosi to push the Obama administration’s cap and trade agenda that would have completely bankrupted the country.

“I think if you have mandatory carbon caps combined with a trading system, much like we did with sulfur, and if you have a tax-incentive program for investing in the solutions, that there’s a package there that’s very, very good,” Gingrich told PBS Frontline in February 2007.

And if you think that doesn’t sound bad enough, just wait until you read what Gingrich had to say about mandatory health insurance.

“Personal responsibility extends to the purchase of health insurance. Citizens should not be able to cheat their neighbors by not buying insurance, particularly when they can afford it, and expect others to pay for their care when they need it,” he wrote in a 2007 OpEd for the Des Moines Register.

That’s right – self-proclaimed “conservative” Gingrich is an aggressive supporter of Obamacare, just like his rival Mitt Romney.

Gingrich has also been instrumental in pushing political frameworks with the goal of accomplishing global governance.

As Attorney Constance Cumbey writes, Gingrich worked feverishly with his buddy Al Gore back in the mid-90′s to help create the embryonic architecture of a global parliamentary authority.

Gingrich’s support for NAFTA, GATT, and the WTO entrenched his position as an enthusiastic advocate of globalism and sending American jobs abroad, the “giant sucking sound,” as Ross Perot labeled it It was Gingrich who helped Bill Clinton and the Democrats garner enough votes from Republicans to pass the North American Free Trade Agreement, which is now quickly evolving into the North American Union.

Gingrich’s Council on Foreign Relations membership and his close relationship with his mentor Henry Kissinger cements his role as a key agitator for the destruction of U.S. sovereignty. Indeed, during a July 1995 speech, he openly decried the constitution as being a roadblock to a UN-managed global government.

“The American challenge in leading the world is compounded by our Constitution,” he said. “Under our [constitutional system] – either we’re going to have to rethink our Constitution, or we’re going to have to rethink our process of decision-making.” He went on to profess an oxymoronic belief in “very strong but limited federal government,” and pledged, “I am for the United Nations.”

“In order to understand just how dedicated Gingrich is to destroying the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, consider that he described himself as a “conservative futurist” who enthusiastically recommended as Speaker of the House his colleagues read Alvin Toffler’s 1980 book The Third Wave,” writes Kurt Nimmo.

“In the book, Toffler wrote a letter to America’s “founding parents,” in which he said: “The system of government you fashioned, including the very principles on which you based it, is increasingly obsolete, and hence increasingly, if inadvertently, oppressive and dangerous to our welfare. It must be radically changed and a new system of government invented – a democracy for the 21st century.” According to Toffler, our constitutional system is one that “served us so well for so long, and that now must, in its turn, die and be replaced.””

The shudder-inducing thought of Newt Gingrich in the White House makes the prospect of a second term for Obama look positively inviting.

At least we know what to expect from Obama. Gingrich is that most dangerous kind of political animal – a wolf in sheep’s clothing – being able to harness the ability of sweet-talking conservatives into calm acquiescence while simultaneously sacrificing America on the altar of globalism.

Banning The Balls: A public school in Toronto has banned “hard balls”—baseballs, softballs, footballs, soccer balls, kickballs, and even tennis balls—because, says the principal, they’re “dangerous.” The kids are still allowed to play with sponge balls and, presumably, balls made of wadded-up hair, dust-bunnies, or overcooked spaghetti. In recent years, according to various newspapers, public schools in the US, Canada, and Britain have banned almost every schoolyard game you’ve ever heard of, including tag, leapfrog, marbles, dodge-ball, touch football, soccer, British bulldog, and conkers. more

White Smoke Billows From Summit Of Anak Krakatau: Indonesia’s Mount Anak Krakatau volcano has been puffing white smoke the last few days, and scientists are warning locals and tourists to keep away.

That was the 1883 eruption of Mount Krakatoa. From the ruins of that gigantic crater left in the land has come forth what is now known as the Anak Krakatau volcano—literally “Krakatoa’s Child.” morego to archives

[videos] Mieders Alpine Coaster (with no brakes!!) | Lutsen Alpine Slide (with no brakes — 100% on the wheels!!)

This Austrian coaster reminds me of the Alpine Slide at Lutsen Ski Resort in northern Minnesota, on the north shore of Lake Superior, which I’ve run with no brakes (and fully on the wheels), when it first opened in 1977.

This Mieders coaster must be a total gas, being in a whole other speed category and much longer, but all you do is hold on (probably good to lean into the turns though too). Whereas, Lutsen’s Alpine Slide (more like a bobsled track with banks) was a real rush too, because it required anticipatory leaning into the turns by the correct amount, and especially at the right time in order to hit the banks just right and to avoid the danger of flying off of the sled, when running fully on the wheels, not using the brakes at all or the plastic sliders.

And as you can see in the video, Lutsen can only be run wide open when it’s not busy. You can see how fast slower riders are approached — when the fun is cut from maximum to “bummer.”

Though it’s been 34 years, it’s possible Lutsen’s Alpine Slide hasn’t been changed at all, as it was very solidly built.

I can remember parts of the ride like it was yesterday. We’ve been blessed!

This is a single-pipe alpine coaster in Mieders, Austria. You reach the summit via a cablecar and then sit on a small car with a brake lever and off you go. Having ridden it once using a little braking, I decided to try it a second time without using the brakes. This is SCARY! Enjoy the ride!

Pepper Spray Developer Denounces Use by UC Davis Police

The criticism over UC Davis’ police dousing non-violent protesters with pepper spray has extended to the man who invented the crowd-control device.

Kamran Loghman helped develop pepper spray into a weapons-grade material while working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the 1980s. After seeing how his invention was used against student demonstrators in Davis, Loghman said police violated his original intent.

“I have never seen such an inappropriate and improper use of chemical agents,” Loghman told The New York Times.

Having helped police departments develop guidelines for using pepper spray, Loghman said pepper spray is appropriate only if a person is physically threatening a police officer or another person.

Some of the Davis students who were subjected to the spray are considering suing the university, and there have been widespread calls for the school’s chancellor, Linda Katehi, to resign. The university police chief, Annette Spicuzza, has been placed on administrative leave, as have pepper-spraying policeman John Pike and another officer.

Posted 2011 Nov 25 from Prof. Peter Palms (web site)
A banking crisis and massive bailouts have already come to pass. The still unfolding scenario includes hyperinflation. collapse of the economy, a new global currency, domestic violence, U.N. “Peacekeeping” forces in the U.S., and the arrival of high-tech feudalism. Details at page 537 to 564 (Creature from Jekyll Island).

There is no optimistic scenario. Events have progressed to far for that. Even if we begin to turn things around by forcing Congress to cut spending and reduce the debt and disentangle from UN treaties, The Cabal will not let go without a ferocious fight. When the Second Bank of the United States was struggling for its life in 1834 Nicholas Biddle, who controlled it, set about to cause as much havoc in the economy as possible and then to blame it on President Jackson’s anti-bank policies. By suddenly tightening credit and withdrawing money from circulation, he triggered a full scale national depression. At the height of his attack, he declared; “All other banks and all the merchants may break, but the Bank of the United States shall not break.” The amount of devastation that could be caused by today’s Federal reserve is infinitely greater than what Biddle as able to unleash. It would be pure self-deception to think that the Cabal would give up its power without exercising that option. We must conclude that no one is going to get out of this unscathed. There is hell to pay, and it is we who are going to pay it.

What has this go to do with the Federal reserve System? The answer is that the Federal reserve is the starting point of the pessimistic scenario. The chain of events starts with fiat money created by the central bank which leads to government debt, which causes inflation, which destroys the economy, which impoverishes the people, which provides an excuse for increasing government power, which is an ongoing process culminating in totalitarianism,Eliminate the Federal reserve from this equation and the pessimistic scenario ceases to exist. That is the seventh and final reason to abolish the Fed. It is an instrument of totalitarianism.

Is it realistic to realistic to believe that the current trends can actually be reversed ? Isn’t it just fantasy to think that anything can be done at the late date to break the CFR’s hold over government, media, and education? do we really expect the gum chewing public to go upstream against the indoctrination of newspapers, magazines, television and movies?

The battle has progressed far and our position is not good. if we are to reverse the present trends we must be prepared to make a herculean effort. If you want to know what must be done first read pages 567 to 572. So much for things not to do. There are certain things that must precede abandonment of the Fed if we are to have a safe passage. Read pages 573 to 588 of fifth edition (24th printing ) The Creature From Jekyll Island.

Mr. G.,
In last week’s Unfiltered Forum, Keith Broaders writes a very important description of how powers devolve from the people to government. I have made this point myself in libertarian presentations. But Keith or someone left out what I believe is a critical word, “not.”

As the creators of the government, we the people can only grant powers to our government, that we already possess. We do not have the authority to take another man’s life, liberty or property, so we can [not] delegate this power to our government.

Dr. Nick Begich has been pursuing independent research in science and politics for most of his adult life. Dr Begich received a doctorate in traditional medicine from the Open International University for Complimentary Medicines in November 2004. Dr. Begich the eldest son of US Congressman Nick Begich Sr. and political activist Pegge Begich.

During this interview conducted by prisonplanet.tv, Dr. Begich talks about many controversial science experiments, including HAARP, Mind Control technology, compartmentalization within the science community, and how these technologies, which might be used for the progress of all mankind, is currently controlled by secret military industrial complex interests putting all of humanity at risk.

Dr. Begich talks about Alaska as a strategic location that can be utilized by the United States as way to stimulate the economy and put America back on the map as the world’s economic leader.

Finally, Dr. Begich spends some time telling us his perspective of the plane crash that killed his father, Congressman Nick Begich sr. and US House Majority leader, Hale Boggs. Dr. Begich recalls out the historical election that faced the U.S. immediately after this tragic plane crash. An almost forgotten event in American history, one that not only changed the course of U.S. history, but the history of the world as well.

Uploaded by on Nov 25, 2011

(NaturalNews) Literal beacons of the “green” energy movement, giant wind turbines have been one of the renewable energy sources of choice for the US government, which has spent billions of taxpayer dollars subsidizing their construction and use across the country. But high maintenance costs, high rates of failure, and fluctuating weather conditions that affect energy production render wind turbines expensive and inefficient, which is why more than 14,000 of them have since been abandoned.

Before government subsidies for the giant metals were cut or eliminated in many areas, wind farms were an energy boom business. But in the post-tax subsidy era, the costs of maintaining and operating wind turbines far outweighs the minimal power they generate in many areas, which has left a patchwork of wind turbine graveyards in many of the most popular wind farming areas of the US.

“Thousands of abandoned wind turbines littered the landscape of wind energy’s California ‘big three’ locations which include Altamont Pass, Tehachapin and San Gorgonio, considered among the world’s best wind sites,” writes Andrew Walden of the American Thinker. “In the best wind spots on earth, over 14,000 turbines were simply abandoned. Spinning, post-industrial junk which generates nothing but bird kills.”

Walden speaks, of course, about the birds, bats, and other air creatures that routinely get tangled in and killed by wind turbine propellers. And as far as the “post-industrial junk” language, well, if it costs too much to run the machines in the first place, then it definitely costs too much to uproot and remove them post-construction.

This whole wind energy mess just further illustrates how the American people have been played by their elected officials who bought into the “global warming” hysteria that spawned the push for wind energy in the first place. And now that the renewable energy tax subsidies are gradually coming to an end in some places, the true financial and economic viability, or lack of wind energy, is on display for the world to see.

“It is all about the tax subsidies,” writes Don Surber of the Charleston Daily Mail. “The blades churn until the money runs out. If an honest history is written about the turn of the 21st century, it will include a large, harsh chapter on how fears about global warming were overplayed for profit by corporations.”

This week’s Republican debate sponsored by Wolf Blitzer of CNBC showcased how far Republican candidates (excepting Ron Paul and sometimes Michelle Bachman) have descended into the control of neocons. I never saw so much warmongering in the past 4 years. It seems they were all intent on using the war drums of terrorism to increase rather than abolish the Patriot Act and increase war rather than stop these invasions and occupations of foreign nations. The hatred against the US is building and that’s just what these wars are intended to do in the globalist playbook.

Spencer Akerman noted that no one except Ron Paul offers a significantly different point of view than the Obama adminstration: “Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich pretty much agree with Obama on Afghanistan and Pakistan. Ex-Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, saying that he backed the ‘commanders on the ground,’ [who are mostly yes-men to the politicians] endorsed Obama’s current approach: ending the Afghanistan troop surge in 2012 and withdrawing most troops by the end of 2014.

“Romney’s challenger-of-the-week, ex-House Speaker Newt Gingrich, was more concerned with the other side of the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. He said he’d tell Pakistanis to ‘get out of the way’ of U.S. troops conducting hot pursuit of terrorists running out of Afghanistan and into Pakistan. And it also sounded like he’d up the covert raids: ‘Don’t complain if we kill people you’re not willing to go after on your territory where you have been protecting them,’ Gingrich said [incredibly calloused].

“That’s a departure from Obama’s approach — but it’s a change in degree, not kind. NATO helicopters currently pursue terrorists fleeing into Pakistan, and U.S. troops on the border fire artillery at Pakistani positions where insurgents attack them. Then there are special-operations raids like the one deep into Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden. But those are still exceptional circumstances; Gingrich sounded like he’d turn them into something closer into the rule [they already are].

“Romney wants to get rid of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad. Perry recently called for a no-fly zone over Syria. Romney ripped him apart: ‘You’d need a no-drive zone’ instead, since Assad’s military isn’t attacking Syrian dissidents from the air. But even if Romney wouldn’t launch a Libya war redux in Syria, he endorsed more sanctions, ‘covert action’ (without explaining), and backing Turkish and Arab League diplomacy to get Assad out, while ‘meeting with the Alawites so they understand they have a future after Assad [under US and NATO control].’ It was a much deeper policy answer than most on display tonight, and evidence that Romney’s thought through what his stated support of the Arab Spring would require [nonsense. He’s just parroting what his highly paid CFR advisors tell him—it’s the standard line].

“Practically everything else is up for grabs. Debate moderator CNN deserves its share of blame for this. In two hours, there were no questions about China [or Russia], no questions about the Eurozone financial meltdown, no questions about the Mexican drug cartels. Nine Republican candidates said practically nothing about whether they’d acquiesce to huge defense cuts or roll them back.” That is how the media frames the debates to evade many issues.

Think Progress criticized neocon and presidential hopeful Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) for his “wildly conflicting positions on Iran. Last month, Santorum defended Ronald Reagan’s decision to negotiate with Iran but contradicted himself a day later by asserting that the Iranian government ‘cannot be negotiated with.’ But in comments made on Friday at a campaign stop in Iowa, Santorum took a more extreme position than any other candidate, claiming Iranian nuclear scientists are ‘enemy combatants’ and could be targeted for assassination.”

Santorum completely ignores the fact that our assassination work by drones and its collateral damage to civilians is enraging the non-western world. But Newt Gingrich was the worst calling [for] more use of the warrantless surveillance and heavy handed tactics permitted by the misnamed PATRIOT ACT. You get the feeling from watching Newt’s smug looks while listening to Ron Paul’s impassioned response for preserving civil rights that Gingrich would welcome a 1984 style society. He’s a totally unprincipled man.

But what will really hurt the establishment chances of selling Republicans on Gingrich is his defense of amnesty for illegals that have been here for years (thanks to little enforcement by the federal government). “Newt adopted the ‘heart position,’ arguing that long-rooted families, even if illegal, ought to be given a path to citizenship. ‘The party that says it’s the party of the family is going to destroy families that have been here for a quarter of a century?’” This quote is already coming back to haunt him. “Along with Santorum, Gingrich also endorsed profiling, saying that ‘you need to use every tool you can possibly use to gather the intelligence.” Every tool? Scary.

Gingrich takes a hard line on expanding foreign policy in line with his globalist background and policy advisors. As pointed out on Jim Lobe’s blog, “Former House Speaker and GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich announced his national security team last night, ahead of tonight’s CNN national security debate. David Wurmser: a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute [a neocon think tank where Gingrich is a former senior fellow], Wurmser served on the staffs of two top Bush administration hawks, former U.N. ambassador John Bolton and Vice President Dick Cheney (where Stephen Yates, another Gingrich adviser, also served). In 2007, a U.N. official called Wurmser one of the ‘new crazies’ who wanted to attack Iran. In 1996, Wurmser co-authored a paper from a right-wing pro-Israel group advocating the removal of Saddam Hussein from power.

Ilan Berman: Berman, the vice president of the American Foreign Policy Council (which also gave the Gingrich campaign Herman Pirchner and Yates) and editor of the Jewish Institute For National Security Affairs journal, has advocated U.S.-led regime change in Iran and wrote that military action against Iran should be a ‘last resort.’ But he’s also attempted to minimize negative effects of an attack and, in 2005 at a Middle East Forum briefing, said Iran is a ‘prime candidate’ for Iraq-style pre-emption.

James Woolsey: Woolsey served as honorary co-chair of Islamophobe Frank Gaffney‘s Center For Security Policy and is a current leadership board and executive team member at the neoconservative Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD). Woolsey advocated for the Iraq war, supports illegal Israeli West Bank settlement construction, and now pushes a confrontational stance on Iran. In 1998, Woolsey signed onto a Project For a New American Century letter urging the military removal of Saddam Hussein.”

Margaret Carlson of Bloomberg, along with various other pundits has begun to notice the “new front runner of the month” syndrome affecting the Republican Party. Carlson blames it on lack of intellect within the Republican party: “Gripped by anti-intellectualism, the party has successively swooned over Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, Texas Governor Rick Perry and Herman Cain.”

Unthinking though the majority may be, this alone isn’t the reason for this too good to be true rise and fall of challengers to Romney. It’s the controlled media and their pollster whores that are outright forging the data in order to make it appear as if these new challengers are suddenly in first place. When the public fails to rally in support of each failed puppet candidate, the polling numbers are allowed to drop to their real level.

Carlson then engages in a fairly cogent analysis of “The Newt:” “In Gingrich, Republicans at least have a candidate who, unlike Cain, understands that the Taliban aren’t threatening to take over Libya (although Gingrich was for President Barack Obama’s intervention there before he was against it). Republicans can be certain that Gingrich’s overactive brain won’t freeze when confronted with rudimentary questions. It may, however, overheat.

Gingrich has a hundred ideas, many of them half-baked, when a single consistent theme would suffice. He loves listening to his own voice and is so dazzled by his rhetorical skills that he believes he can wriggle out of the very tight spots in which he invariably wedges himself. The most recent example was his claim that he was paid by Freddie Mac not as an influence peddler, but for his advice as a ‘historian.’ Bloomberg News subsequently revealed that his fees had totaled more than $1.6 million, which is a whole lot of history.”

But Gingrich, a member of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations since 1990, is a lousy historian when it comes to remembering his own unprincipled past. “In giving Gingrich a second look, conservatives are bound to see some ugly things. Before reversing his position under a barrage of conservative criticism, Gingrich called the Medicare reform championed by Republican Representative Paul Ryan ‘right- wing social engineering.’ Earlier this year, his campaign imploded as Gingrich decamped with his wife for a cruise of the Greek isles (which he now characterizes, incredibly, as a prescient fact-finding mission to study Greece’s debt problem). When he returned, his staff quit.

“In addition to a longstanding credibility problem, Gingrich has committed multiple heresies against the conservative faith. He made an advertisement with House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi in which together they promoted global-warming awareness. Gingrich called it ‘probably the dumbest single thing I’ve done in recent years,’ an admission that won’t necessarily appease a Republican base convinced that global warming is a fraud perpetrated by scientists.

“In 1986, Gingrich backed amnesty for illegal aliens and, as former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has gleefully pointed out, Gingrich was one of the many Republicans who expressed support for an individual mandate to buy health insurance before that idea was adopted by Obama.

Gingrich, who recently converted to Catholicism and says he’s pro-life, didn’t do much for the pro- life cause in the 1990s when he was the second-most-powerful person in Washington. He did not defund Planned Parenthood or pass the human-life amendment. In a high-profile Republican primary in a New York special election in 2009, he endorsed the pro-choice candidate before she dropped out of the race.

“Influence Peddling in Gingrich’s post- congressional life: For more than a decade he has exploited his insider credentials to embed himself in the interlocking and lucrative system of special interests and influence peddling. For one paying client, Gingrich said that Medicare could save more than $33 billion a year if it were to encourage patients to sign ‘advance directives’ to limit end-of-life care, a policy that Sarah Palin has since relabeled ‘death panels.’ As historian Gingrich tries to explain away his work for Freddie Mac without actually disclosing what he did, he risks digging himself deeper into the Washington muck that the Tea Party abhors.

“Gingrich has so many missteps to explain, he has set up a website featuring his own negatives (well, some of them) and respective explanations. Lots of luck there. It took a surge in the polls for his daughter to explain that Gingrich’s visit to his wife’s hospital bedside as she recovered from cancer surgery was not, as widely reported, to tell her that he wanted a divorce. He just wanted to visit.

“For Republicans, Gingrich’s rise and eventual collapse may prove more embarrassing than the boom-and-bust cycles of previous candidates who claimed to be the One Who Can Stop Romney from gaining the nomination. Conservatives have to forgo so many principles — three marriages? — to elevate Newt, that there’s almost nothing left.”

I had a subscriber quit last week over her feelings that I was being “too hard on Gingrich.” In reality, I haven’t even begun to tell of the skeletons in this man’s closets. Some are too unsavory to tell in detail, but here’s an edited version from the 1995 Vanity Faire article about Gingrich:

“In the spring of 1977, [Anne Manning, who admitted to a relationship with Gingrich that started during his 1976 campaign] was in Washington to attend a census-bureaus workshop when Gingrich took her to dinner at a Vietnamese restaurant. He met her back at her modest hotel room. ‘We had [a form of sex without getting in bed],’ she says. ‘He prefers that… because then he can say, ‘I never slept with her.’ Indeed, before Gingrich left that evening, she says, he threatened her: ‘If you ever tell anybody about this, I’ll say you’re lying.’” During that same period one of Newt Gingrich’s neighbors Kip Carter, who lived a few doors down from the couple, saw Gingrich have an aberrational form of sex with one of his house guest’s wives in the car. Carter described Gingrich’s reaction upon discovery as a boyish smirk. That’s what kind of amoral man this is.

Joel Skousen’s World Affairs Brief News Headlines — Is Ron Paul the only one that wants peace?

From: WorldAffairsBrief.com

This week in the World Affairs Brief:
Signs are building that the US intends to take down Syria via military force just as they did to Libya. France and the US are already recognizing a Syrian Transnational Council which is very similar to the name given to the PTB-supported Libyan rebels. The Western powers are setting the stage for a call to the UN to stop the “humanitarian crisis” in Syria that they have deliberately provoked by arming a core segment of demonstrators and having those provocateurs attack Syrian police. The US is in the planning stages of declaring a “no fly zone” over Syria in order to justify the beginnings of aerial attacks on Syrian military positions–again, following the Libyan model. There may be an Iran angle in all this, as well. Iran has many more direct links to Syria and Lebanon than Libya, so one wonders if this increased threat to Syria is intended to draw Iran into a conflict that will finally justify the long expected Israeli attack on Iran.

Ron Paul Scores in Foreign Policy Debate
Story by The New American

Ron Paul has done more to enliven the debates than any of the other candidates. He thinks philosophically, which is what these debates need, rather than unending restatements of neo-conservative positions. He represents the only true alternative to the big government, big spending, big entitlement mentality that governs American politics. All of the Republican candidates want smaller government, less spending, and lower taxes. But on the issue of foreign policy Paul offers an entirely different view, one that many Americans find makes good sense. Others may find his views impractical, or naïve. …More
Italy’s Borrowing Rates Skyrocket, Monti Scrambles
Story by ABC News

Driving market fears is the knowledge that Italy is too big for Europe to bail out, like it has done with smaller nations Greece, Portugal and Ireland. Italy must refinance $200 billion by next April alone, but too-high borrowing rates can fuel a potentially devastating debt spiral that could bankrupt the country. Friday’s auctions showed that investors see Italian debt as increasingly risky. The country had to pay an average yield of 7.814 percent to raise euro2 billion ($2.7 billion) in two-year bills — sharply higher than the 4.628 percent it paid in the previous auction in October. And even raising euro8 billion ($10.7 billion) for six months proved exorbitantly expensive, as the yield for that spiked to 6.504 percent, nearly double the 3.535 percent rate last month. …More

What’s next after ‘super committee’ failure?
Story by CNN

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, said Democrats “were prepared to strike a grand bargain that would make painful cuts while asking millionaires to pay their fair share, and we put our willingness on paper,” but Republicans “never came close to meeting us halfway.” His GOP counterpart, Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, argued that an agreement “proved impossible not because Republicans were unwilling to compromise, but because Democrats would not accept any proposal that did not expand the size and scope of government or punish job creators.” …More
Revolution Redux: A first-hand account of police brutality
Story by Ahram Online

I was talking on my mobile phone with my editor, describing the scene, when a plainclothes individual – holding a t-shaped metal stick – grabbed my arm and began cursing at me. He thought that I was one of the protesters, since my shirt was wrapped around my head to lessen the effects of the tear gas. I hastened to tell him that I was a journalist, to which he responded by pushing me towards the soldiers. I thought I was being arrested – or at least turned over to a higher authority who would decide what to do with me. But to my surprise, a uniformed soldier slapped me hard on the back of my head and began shouting insults at me. He was soon joined by several colleagues who began to apply their thick black batons to my back. …More
Egypt protesters spurn army’s referendum offer
Story by Reuters

A roar of defiance rippled through Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Tuesday night as thousands of protesters demanding an end to army rule spurned an offer from Egypt’s military leader to let the people decide in a referendum. Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi said the military was ready to hand over to civilians if Egyptians wanted it, in concessions designed to end four days of clashes in the capital and beyond that have left at least 36 people dead. Impatience mounted among protesters massed in the square during Tantawi’s nervous, faltering speech, witnesses said, and a chorus of “leave, leave!” erupted when it ended. …More
More Americans than not want health law repeal: poll
Story by Reuters

As the Supreme Court prepares to review President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform, more Americans want to see it repealed than want to keep it, a poll released on Wednesday shows. A Gallup survey of more than 1,000 U.S. adults found that 47 percent favor the repeal of healthcare reform, versus 42 percent who want the law kept in place. Eleven percent had no opinion. …More
Obama dossier winds up — literally — in Aussie gutter
Story by USA Today

Most of the manual was devoted to a minute-by-minute schedule of Obama’s movements during his 27-hour visit to Canberra and Darwin last week, even detailing which car door he would use and the seating arrangements within his convoys. It also ran through the exact breakdown of his Secret Service detail and motorcade arrangements, including Obama’s ambulance, counterassault teams, communications and intelligence, according to the journalist, Dylan Welch. The booklet cover stated that the information was “not to be communicated either directly or indirectly to any person not authorised to receive it,” Welch said, and it included contact details for a range of figures. It also named a long-serving member responsible for Obama’s protection. …More

Israeli secret service the Mossad linked to Iran military blast
Story by The Guardian

A series of news reports linking Israel’s intelligence agency the Mossad to a blast at a military facility in Iran, in which 17 people were killed and a further 15 wounded, has gained widespread coverage in the Israeli media on Monday. While Iranian officials insist the explosion at the Bid Ganeh base was accidental, caused by the movement of ammunition, claims from anonymous western and Israeli officials that Saturday’s blast was a covert Israeli operation have gained momentum. …More
Syria’s suspension from the Arab League leaves Assad isolated
Story by Guardian

Syria’s crisis has entered uncharted waters with the country’s suspension from the Arab League. But it is far from clear whether the dramatic shift in the regional mood will change wider international attitudes to intervention. …So it was striking that Russia, which with China has kept the UN security council paralysed, quickly responded that Arab states were wrong to suspend Syria. “Someone really does not want the Syrians to agree among themselves,” complained Sergei Lavrov, Russia’s foreign minister, who accused the west of encouraging the Syrian opposition to seek regime change. Iran, apparently alarmed at the prospect of losing its only Arab ally, agreed. Everyone acknowledges that the fear is a repeat of a Libyan scenario, where March’s Arab League decision to abandon Gaddafi was crucial in paving the way for a UN resolution and eventual Nato action. …More
Is Ron Paul the only one that wants peace?
Story by RT

…Aside from Paul and fellow hopeful Jon Huntsman, other candidates came in support of waterboarding. According to Paul, however, it is wrong on many levels. “It’s illegal under international law and under our law. It’s also immoral. And it’s also very impractical. There’s no evidence that you really get reliable evidence. Why would you accept the position of torturing 100 people because you know one person might have information? And that’s what you do when you accept the principle of torture. I think it’s uncivilized and has no practical advantages and is really un-American to accept on principle that we will torture people that we capture,” said the congressman. …More
