WHERE DOES THE RON PAUL MOVEMENT GO FROM HERE?

[…]

Is there a path to winning back America as a nation? No, I think we’ve past the point of no return. I’ve been in this battle all my adult life, and here are my conclusions that preclude winning back the entire nation:
1) The people are no longer worthy of liberty. Americans as a whole are soft, materialistic and too content with life to fight, let alone recognize the loss of liberty. As long as they are allowed to go to church and buy what they want, they think they are free. But the noose is tightening. The youth are even softer, so the trend is in the wrong direction. Americans may still consider themselves a religious people, but religion, for the most part, doesn’t change their little bad habits, so at some point their religion is not leading to righteousness. They stop listening to the refining voice of conscience. Religious people don’t even honor the Sabbath anymore. To the Lord, listening to the personal promptings of conscience is where the real test of religiosity lies and most Christians are chronic violators of conscience in the “little things” relative to weight control, nutrition, recreation choices, use of time and failure to discipline children. Trouble is, this callous disregard for the “still small voice” leads to bigger problems and worse decisions. That is why immorality and divorce are high even among church goers. There are notable exceptions, but in general America is getting more unworthy of being saved by God.
2) Americans are lazy about finding truth. Conservatives constantly claim that reforming the education system will turn things around, that American children are starved for good information. But there are two problems here:
A. The education monopoly by government precludes that kind of change. Ever get elected to a school board? If you do you’ll find that state laws prohibit you pointing the curriculum in any other way but that which “credentialed educators” insist you must go, and the establishment controls the credentials. Only complete privatization of education will give parents the freedom to choose—but the establishment isn’t going to let that happen and there are way too many conservatives who would hate to have to pay user fees for those expensive public schools should other non-users be rightfully exempt.
B. I went to public schools and could tell I wasn’t being told the truth about many things. I sensed that something was wrong and went elsewhere to find truth. Today, more than ever with the vast information on the web, the truth is out there (except for most of the deepest and darkest secrets of conspiracy), and if people don’t find it, something is wrong with them relative to the workings of conscience and self control. That’s my point. Far too many people have become immune to the faint warning signals that something is wrong, or if they do hear it, they are too busy searching for material welfare to care. That’s the main reason why this downward track isn’t solvable by external education
3) Good people who are aware are too few to win peacefully: Ever since I worked in Washington and had access to conservative polling data, I’ve realized we don’t have the numbers to win by majority rule. The benefit-corrupted who are on some form of government payment exceed 50% of US inhabitants. Not all of them vote Democratic, but there is a tendency to resist cuts that affects them.
Here are my estimates: Almost all people who are aware of the constitutional crisis have gravitated to the Ron Paul position. His supporters represent, at the most, about 20% of Republicans, but Republicans only represent about 40% of the nation. That means constitutional conservatives and libertarians only represent 8% of the nation.
That 8% is a pretty realistic number, but even if it’s 10% people are tempted to think that since we doubled our numbers in the past 4 years, we can do it again. Not so. Already, there is a distinct resistance when you push past the 10% mark. People aren’t interested. Romney Republicans are resistant to anything that isn’t mainstream.
On the upbeat side, I think that we could possibly get 30% of Republicans to come around if we had another Ron Paul. Rand Paul could certainly achieve those kinds of numbers, but that’s because he would soften his father’s positions. But even with those numbers Rand still wouldn’t win. The establishment won’t allow real change. They won’t allow anyone to get elected unless the make the kind of deep concessions Mitt Romney has, and even then they don’t like it.
4) The US can never pay off the debt or quit deficit spending: Deficit spending got us into this mess, and politicians can’t stop. They love deficit spending and so does the public because it shields them from the pain for paying for wars, foreign aid, education loans, bailouts, tax increases, welfare, and subsidies. Everything is painless until you’re bankrupt and we’re still at least a decade away from that. Rest assured, they’ll give us another world war before that comes due. That’s been their plan all along.
5) The Globalist Conspiracy is too strong to overthrow: They don’t have to have absolute control of everything—effective control is enough. They use a lot of “incentives” to control a vast network of hirelings (willing yes-men) around them who may not fully understand the nature of a conspiracy of power—but they will do their bidding, either out of ignorance, blind pro-government sentiments, promises of advancement, money, or threats. And, don’t forget about immunity—that promise that is ever present when they enter dark side activities, after first having proven that they have sufficient sins to be blackmailed.
How would a Ron Paul survive even if elected? The Secret Service was integral to the killing of Pres. Kennedy. The FBI and CIA both covered up and hired the mafia/CIA hitmen that did the job. There is a dark side of the other federal agencies as well—the DEA, INS, DHS, IRS and even the military. How could an honest president even begin to penetrate, let alone clean out those nests of criminals when they control all the surveillance machinery. How would you gather evidence on them if those on the inside denied it to you? You can’t even think about mounting a good old “Revolutionary War” in today’s age of Big Brother and his All-Seeing Eye.
As for legislative or judicial protection (the so-called separation of powers), I estimate that the government has culpable files on about 75-80% of members of Congress, almost all Police Chiefs in major cities, and most higher judges in the nation, all the way to the Supreme Court. They look for dirt on anyone who starts to rise in the political arena and use those files to control them. Ever wonder why judges almost always back government power, or even abusive police in the face of citizen complaints?
6) States have become corrupt too: It is only partially true that state and local governments are easier to reform than the federal government. All state governments have corruption problems and some states like California, Illinois and New York have corruption machines that rival the mafia. Most large cities are also totally corrupt inside. That said, some states are clearly less corrupt than others, but there is an establishment good ‘old boy network, closely allied with the liberal press in every major city that works together to make sure than no Ron Paul or free market revolutionary gains control. When they do by political fluke (think Evan Mecham, governor of Arizona—a Cleon Skousen trained constitutionalist), the media lies in wait until they make a verbal gaffe and then they run him out of town with a recall election. Scott Walker beat them in Wisconsin, but that was an exception, and he wasn’t really threatening to clean the whole house. Don’t expect that exception to become the rule.
What about the God is in Control argument? Optimistic Christian conservatives always throw out the argument that “God is in Control” and so we don’t have to worry. He has the power to change things. As a believer, I agree. He does have the power. But the real question is will He intervene to save us? And, is America worthy of being saved by God? I don’t think so anymore. That doesn’t mean all is lost for everyone, but it does point to us heading for a great period of tribulation and the loss of liberty at the national level as it morphs into the NWO.
I’m a religious person, and keep my eyes open constantly searching for signs that God is intervening as he did in the nation’s founding—allowing a set of leaders to rise to positions of influence where they can turn the tide, or even allowing major financing to come to principled people so they can bypass the establishment media, or schools, and fund a national movement to renew America. Nothing has happened. The big money only goes to ineffective or mainstream causes. We do have ample numbers of great thinkers with ideals and principles as profound as America’s founders, but none have been allowed to rise in power. Ron Paul got the closest.
Those ministers who have achieved great wealth and fame in televangelism have done so by singing the easy gospel that people want to hear. Those that have been granted access to the White House prayer breakfast meetings during the Bush administration were those who refused to speak up or criticize the big government or war agenda. All the real champions of freedom have been left on the sidelines. Ron Paul is the only one to even get close to a run at the presidency and he has been shut down—but not without building the movement. I’ve seen God’s hand helping to gather the remnant, but no indications of any real optimism toward beating the mammoth evil that is growing even faster than the Liberty movement.
Mitt Romney, though religious, is not the political savior Christians are looking for. He may think God has helped him along the way, but the only way he has gotten this far is by surrounding himself by minions of the devil’s neocon camp. I guarantee you that Mitt Romney, if elected, will be a great disappointment to conservatives. All the good things he proposes will go down in defeat. He will not be allowed to put forth any real constitutionalists for the Supreme Court. They will be blocked in the Senate, and like Reagan, he will finally give in and nominate those the establishment agrees to. He will not overturn abortion. Obamacare will not be shut down.
Remember, to have faith in the salvation of the nation as a whole, the people have to be worthy and I think it has to be more than a mere 10%. God might have spared one corrupt city in Old Testament times if Abraham could find but 10 righteous men, but even had he found 10, sparing a city is a far cry from restoring a nation to full blown liberty. That can’t be done without the full reform of a majority of the people. Considering the overwhelming moral evil in our nation that burdens the Lord’s sense of justice, I think He is bound to let the sword of justice fall. You can’t just manufacture specific faith in a proposed event by hope only or wishful thinking. For specific faith in a hoped for event to be valid, you have to have the spiritual confirmation that it is the Lord’s will, and that must come from God and not rosy-eyed optimism. While the Lord might certainly want the nation to be saved, God himself cannot arbitrarily disregard the decree of justice upon which the universe operates. Only upon terms of repentance and change of heart can condemnation be averted, and I don’t see that happening. I’m keeping an open heart and mind that it might, but the signs aren’t good.
Conclusion: All is not lost even if we don’t have the numbers to win politically. We can still fight for liberty to gain a minority foothold within the nation–a resistance movement, if you will, even if we can’t win back the whole. But when you are dealing with a minority of good people, to exercise any power at all, you have to congregate together so that you have a majority in a region or local area. Our greatest problem in a losing battle of attrition is that we are spread out uniformly across the nation—dispersed in a sea of humanity where none of us constitute a majority.
All efforts to get people to relocate to a Free State (FreeStateProject.org) have been relatively unsuccessful. Their chosen state, New Hampshire, isn’t the best place and it isn’t welcoming the “takeover” that is viewed as a threat to the establishment of that state. There is also the a constant fear among adherents that “times are too difficult economically” for people to pick up and start over in a new location. And that is probably true for most. But it won’t be any easier when we are forced to flee to safer places due to war and economic collapse (which won’t come until war, in my opinion).
If there is any hope for liberty it will be because pockets of liberty and resistance form during the next war when government itself is busy saving itself and not targeting freedom-loving dissidents–yet. I think you’ll see the time, when crisis comes that the social unrest will drive people out of their current places and the Lord will inspire those who can listen to go to places of refuge where other like-minded people are also gathering. Some will be inspired to go to safe places before the crisis, and if you are one of those, heed the promptings. We still have perhaps a decade before the worst comes upon us, so despite all the rumors of collapse, you still have time to make an informed move.

THIS WEEK’S ANALYSIS: 
GOP Convention: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Where does the Ron Paul Movement go from Here?
Collapse of Morgan Stanley Imminent?
GOP CONVENTION: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Political nominating conventions have become nothing more than propaganda parties, wasting viewers’ time with hours of mindless cheerleading for things people want to hear but leaders have no intention of giving. The degree of deception and misdirection going on behind the scenes was the only interesting story to come out of the Tampa Republican Convention this week. The rest of it was predictable and boring. To paraphrase from a famous Clint Eastwood movie, we saw the Good, albeit feigned, the Bad, as in boring, and a lot of ugly where rules were changed to preclude any future Ron Paul revolutions in the Republican party.
The Good: Ann Romney acquitted herself well in her speech, despite struggling with MS and a good case of nerves, as she tried to relay the more human side of Mitt Romney. He does have one. Sure, he’s an overly ambitious businessman who is in way over his head as he tries to please the establishment, but he’s also a good family man, who has been faithful to his wife. Like any good Mormon, Mitt is committed to doing a lot of service to others, but as she pointed out, he never allows his staff to call reporters to come watch—which says a lot. As she put it, “Mitt doesn’t like to talk about how he’s helped others,” she said. “Because he sees it as a privilege not a political talking point.”
Nikki Haley, governor of South Carolina, is a rising conservative star and gave a good speech. Even the Washington Post had to admit, “[She] was the best. She was poised and relaxed and drew the crowd to their feet with her mentions of the Palmetto State’s voter ID law and the National Labor Relations Board fight.”
Another highlight of the convention was the appearance of Ron Paul on the floor. You would have thought he was the actual nominee for President, or a rock star. All the cameras were on him as he was surrounded by well wishers seeking to shake his hand. No other failed nominee got this kind of response.
Everyone knew of the establishment efforts, illegal and unprincipled, to derail his candidacy, so it gave Paul the aura of the martyred hero. Indeed, he had the glow of a winner as he waved triumphantly to the crowd, as if the fact that the establishment had successfully beat him down yet another time, had not sunk in or wasn’t relevant. To an extent it this was true. No other loser has come out such a winner as Ron Paul.
Even the establishment has to admit that the movement Ron Paul spawned is here to stay and isn’t going away anytime soon. Thus, while the Republican National Committee refused to give Ron Paul a speaking slot—made all the more insulting by the low caliber of speeches filling the hall hour after hour—they felt obligated to play a tribute video to the man.
It was a nice touch, professionally done and captured Ron Paul’s greatness. At the same time it carefully omitted any mention of his foreign policy ideas to end foreign wars and bring our troops home – the key difference between Ron and the other Republican candidates. In a way it was the edited speech they wanted him to stoop to. There was plenty of praise but it was clear the establishment was only giving grudging tribute to placate his followers. I had to cringe at the inclusion of the feigned words of praise from minority leader Sen. Mitch McConnell. It was typical of the outright false motives behind the piece that the RNC would have an establishment hack singing the praises of Ron Paul—someone who never supported any of the congressman’s initiatives. But there were other conservatives including Rep. Justin Amash who were utterly sincere in their praise of liberty’s “Dr. No” —an honorable title for the only congressman who consistently refuses to go along with unconstitutional legislation. Here’s a video link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=CisZjD49erU
Given all this fancy praise, why were they so ruthless in refusing to let him speak? Wisely, Dr. Paul turned down their two conditions for a speaking slot: endorse Mitt Romney and allow the RNC to vet his speech. Even as Fox News’ Neil Cavuto tried time and again during a friendly interview to extract an implied endorsement for Mitt Romney, Ron Paul refused. He stated that he would forever discredit all that he has stood for if he endorses anyone who continues to push for more unconstitutional wars.
In 2008 the RNC wouldn’t even let Congressman Paul on the floor of the convention without a handler. This year he couldn’t be denied, so the Republican establishment had to feign tolerance and support, while knifing his movement in the back (more on that later in The Ugly part). The video tribute was only intended to assuage his supporters, without giving an inch on the principles they want enacted. The party knows that if the Paulites stay home or vote Third Party, Mitt’s going to lose.
Forget about the few platform wins the Paulites and Tea Party made. The platform doesn’t bind anyone in the party to anything. It is pure symbolism; pure greasy ointment to salve the conscience of those who still think the Republican party will save the country. It won’t—ever.
The Bad: Boring, predictable, rah-rah speeches were too numerous to mention. But I was clearly unimpressed with weak speeches by candidates Tim Pawlenty and Rick Santorum. The latter wore his trademark plastered smile, and whose hand gestures were as awkward as a teenager in his first speech class.
Newt Gingrich was his usual slick self without an ounce of sincerity. Neocon Condolezza Rice was particularly disturbing with her pretensions toward conservativism. As a real live globalist, it was equally disturbing to see her seated on the other side of Mitt Romney—probably an indication that she will get a coveted spot in the cabinet—perhaps as Secretary of State again.
But the best of the worst was clearly the keynote address by Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey. It was clearly all about him, not Mitt Romney or even the Republican Party. At least he wasn’t boring—far from it. He has a good, natural presentation style if you can get past the inherent contradictions in his lack of personal restraint (obesity) and his push for fiscal restraint in government. He went through every laudable aspect of his background, tooting his own horn and playing up every supposed victory achieved in New Jersey (which still won’t recover in the long-term). As the Washington Post put it, “Christie will take some (justified) criticism for spending 95 percent of his speech talking about himself and five percent talking about Mitt Romney. (And that’s being generous.) But, Christie burnished the Christie brand with his keynote address, which, after all, was kind of his goal. Christie was blunt and remarkably relaxed. He came across as entirely at ease in his own skin and as close to a regular guy as politics can produce. In short, he did nothing to hurt chatter about his own future as a presidential candidate in 2016 or 2020 — and that makes him a winner in our scoring system.”
…And a loser in mine. Christie was the recipient of one of those instant phony polling surges the media pulled during the early campaign trying to promote him for president in order to derail Romney. They only do that for certified insiders. Christie is not a true conservative and has some big skeletons in his closet that, in my opinion, he was unwilling to risk exposing at this time and that is why he backed out. Still, he’s clearly prepping for a run in 2016 and the establishment will be behind it, so beware.
Mitt Romney’s speech was disappointing as he pandered to American sensibilities by saying Republicans were all rooting for Obama to succeed—hogwash! But, disappointed now, we need to move on to the Romney solution. There is no solution. Romney cannot produce the fix he promises. No one can given the state of public benefit corruption. We’re too far in debt with zero tolerance for the pain of withdrawal from government spending—just like Greece, Italy and every other socialist country.
The Ugly: The Left was having a ball watching the establishment Republicans working very hard to stop the Ron Paul faction—the only faction that the principled Left (people who mistakenly think government is the way to help people, but don’t see the hidden victims) can find common cause. In fact they skewered the Paul delegates in a treacherous move. Philip Geraldi gave a great summary:
“It was perhaps inevitable that the GOP would turn on the Ron Paul supporters to eliminate them from their version of a body politic. I predicted it would take place and so did a number of others. But what has been surprising is the timing. It seemed reasonable to assume that the Republican gatekeepers would wait until after the convention or even the election to keep the Paulistas in harness and supportive, nurturing their faint hopes that their message would somehow have an impact, encouraging them to vote for Mitt Romney.
“But the Republican Party leadership decided instead to purge Paul supporters at both the state and local level and also on the convention floor. As Justin Raimondo has noted, a harrowing worthy of Josef Stalin took place in a number of states employing procedural ploys, stripping delegates of their accreditation, and even illegal closing of caucuses, which denied to Ron Paul’s supporters any ability to have significant impact at the convention. The deal was sealed when the GOP rules committee revised its convention guidelines, initially to make it impossible to cast dissident votes or to propose nominations from the floor, and subsequently to allow the national party to veto and replace state delegates.
“Jordan Bloom, who attended the Paul events in Tampa, reported that Paul’s supporters were angry and frustrated, many having experienced political corruption up close and personal for the first time. One friend of mine on Capitol Hill likened the caucus deals finally arrived at in various states to having a burglar steal everything you own and then return a couple of days later to give you half back if you do not complain [in Maine]. That’s what happened. The Paul supporters were outgunned and out-muscled and, led by a campaign team that wanted accommodation, wound up taking what they could get.”
Andy Kroll and David Corn summarized some of the tactics that enraged Paulites: “During the roll call of the states, the Paulites were irate, screaming at the podium, as convention secretary Kim Reynolds declined to read out the delegate votes for any candidate other than Romney [this was an egregious sleight of hand against Paul and others, as if they didn’t matter—only Romney. It demonstrated just how rigged even the administrative offices are within the party and smacks of the Soviet styled one party state]. ‘The Republican Party is so afraid of Ron Paul that they won’t repeat his name,’ shouted Jim Ayala, a Nevada delegate and Paul supporter wearing an Oath Keepers T-shirt.”
Here is the actual delegate count for states that had votes for other candidates than Romney. Notice that with all the manipulation against Paul, he still got a significant number of votes and even won Iowa, Nevada, and Minnesota:
Iowa: 22 Ron Paul, 6 Romney.[cheers for Paul. The roll taker repeats the Romney total].
Hawaii: 17 Romney, 3 Paul
Georgia gives 72 to Romney, [microphone gets tuned off for the Paul total. Paul got 3].
Louisiana: 12 Paul, 32 Romney, 2 Santorum
North Dakota: 5 Paul, 23 Romney
North Carolina: 7 Paul, 48 Romney
New Jersey puts Romney over the top.
New Hampshire: 3 Paul, 9 Romney
Nevada: 17 Paul, 5 Romney, 5 abstain [because they weren’t allowed to vote for Paul]
Maine: 10 Paul, 14 Romney.
Mississippi: 4 Paul, 3 Santorum, 45 Romney
Minnesota: 33 to Paul, 1 Santorum, 6 Romney [Proud to have run a fair election with integrity]
Michigan: 4 Paul, 24 Romney [only Romney’s total (2061) announced at the end].
Oregon: 4 Paul, 1 Santorum, 23 Romney
Oklahoma: 6 Paul, 34 Romney
Pennsylvanian: 5 Paul [read as “Paul Ryan”], 67 Romney
Rhode Island: 4 Paul, 15 Romney
South Carolina: 1 Paul, 24 Romney
Texas: 20 Paul, 130 Romney
Washington: 5 Paul, 38 Romney
Virgin Islands: 1 Paul, 8 Romney
Virginia: 3 Paul, 46 Romney
Vermont: 4 Paul, 13 Romney
Oregon: 4 Paul, 1 Santorum, 23 Romney
Oklahoma: 6 Paul, 34 Romney
“Minutes earlier, the Paulites were enraged when the convention adopted the new set of rules on a voice vote during which the Paul backers out-shouted the other delegates. One Nevada delegate and Paul supporter, Mark Carducci, thrust two middle fingers into the air toward RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), screaming “F**k you, tyrants!”
The Republican National Committee had altered the convention rules to bind delegates in future elections to vote for the candidate who wins their state’s primary or caucus. This change would hurt outsider candidates like Paul, who collected 158 delegates during the Republican primary season. The RNC also refused to recognize Paul’s delegates from Maine, and this incensed his many supporters, leading to a nasty yelling match on the convention floor immediately before Mitt Romney’s nomination. ‘Seat them now!’ the Paulites yelled.”
Maine’s Republican governor Paul LePage boycotted the convention due to this arbitrary denial of Ron Paul delegates. The Maine Ron Paul delegation was in the balcony and all left in protest when they were refused recognition. In an interview with Mitt Romney, Ben Swan of Reality Check directly asked Romney what he thought about the Maine delegation scandal. Romney claimed he wasn’t aware of what was going on there—a bald faced lie.
While others assume he was directing all this, I don’t believe that is true. There are professional controllers behind the scenes at Republican headquarters that are doing these direct attacks. But Romney is responsible insofar as he didn’t lift a finger to use his influence to stop it. Very disappointing and it doesn’t bode well for the courage it will take to stop illegal acts of government that he might see if elected.
“Roger Leahy, an Iowa delegate and Paul supporter, says he and other Paulites had pleaded with Reynolds to recognize Paul during the roll call, but she would not. ‘This is the Republican steamroller,’ Leahy said. All this led to the unseated Maine Paul delegates storming out of the convention together. And a pack of angry Paul fans all clad in white ballcaps left the Tampa Bay Times Forum. The Romney campaign and the RNC had hoped to avoid this kind of floor flight, large or small, during the convention. But once it was done, the convention proceeded and Romney was nominated, to polite applause.
“Following the dustup, Yelena Vorobyov (pictured below), a 30-year-old Paul delegate from Apple Valley, Minnesota, was eager to vent. Barely taking a breath, she said: ‘This is just evidence of the manipulation of the Republican Party. They’re not even allowing us to bring signs in, but they brought in their own [pro-Romney] signs. We couldn’t nominate Ron Paul.
The ‘no’ for not passing the rules was louder than the ‘aye’ [referring to the previous vote which prompted the “tyrant” shout] and they ruled in favor of the rules. They’re cheating. The Republican National Committee is not transparent and does not have integrity. They stole votes. They stole delegates. They refused to send buses for our delegates. It’s a totalitarian process. This is not democracy. It’s a really sad day for us. I’ve worked for Republican candidates since I was 16. We believed the Republican Party had more integrity. Boy, did they prove us wrong.’ Yelena Vorobyov, one of Ron Paul’s 33 Minnesota delegates, had to make her own sign on the floor, and she was damn mad.”
Bottom line is that the Republicans have really alienated the Ron Paul faction and most will not vote for Romney. I certainly won’t. The longer we accede to these kinds of control tactics and outright fraudulent tactics, in the vain hope that they will change or that we can take it over, the longer it will take to convince others that we must forge a new way with principled leaders.
As a fitting establishment sleight to Ron Paul, he and his entire party, using a private plane, were delayed by TSA. Lew Rockwell posted this: “Ron, Carol, and one of their granddaughters left the GOP snake pit yesterday afternoon, but the State was not yet through with them. At the little airport in Clearwater, 8 TSA agents descended on them and ordered them not to board their private plane. First, the pilots, the airplane, and the passengers would have to be screened in great detail, because Romney might be nearby [he wasn’t, and he isn’t president so the TSA can’t throw up a special airport restriction like they do for Obama—which is very irritating to us pilots]. After a long examination of the pilots and their credentials, the agents said they had to check the plane for explosives [why would they have to do that? They aren’t arriving, they are departing!]. One of the pilots noted that the plane, full of aviation fuel, was already a bomb. Then Carol Paul, who has a pacemaker, refused to be screened, and an aide started taking video of the whole rotten process. At that point, the TSA backed down and let them through, to Texas and freedom.”

Ralph Epperson: ROOSEVELT KNEW About Pearl Harbor Before It Happened! — HILO, HAWAII TRIBUNE HERALD – November 30, 1941 — Lying to get US into war…

I haven’t been able to find the text for the article to see exactly what it said.

ROOSEVELT KNEW ABOUT PEARL HARBOR BEFORE IT HAPPENED!

Image

On December 7, 1941, the Japanese navy and air force attacked the United States army, navy and air force units at PEARL HARBOR, HAWAII in what was called “A SURPRISE ATTACK.”

The next day, President Franklin Roosevelt called the attack “A DAY OF INFAMY,” and asked Congress for a Declaration of War.

It was granted, and America was in WORLD WAR TWO.

Many at the time questioned how “A SURPRISE ATTACK” could have happened, and whether President Roosevelt should have known about it in advance and warned our forces in Hawaii.

NINE CONGRESSIONAL investigations were conducted, during and after the war, and each examined the question: DID PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT KNOW ABOUT THE ATTACK BEFORE IT HAPPENED, AND IF SO, WHY DID HE DO NOTHING TO PREPARE OUR FORCES.

And NINE CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATIONS all concluded that ROOSEVELT DID NOT KNOW IN ADVANCE!

A few years ago, I saw a photo copy of the HILO, HAWAII TRIBUNE HERALD newspaper of November 30, 1941, the Sunday before the attack. I called the library in HILO, HAWAII and they photocopied the top half of their front page and sent it to me.

The HEADLINE of this newspaper reads:

JAPAN MAY STRIKE OVER WEEKEND

meaning the following weekend, Saturday, December 6th and Sunday, December 7th, 1941.

ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION:

How could this NEWSPAPER KNOW IN ADVANCE, but PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT DID NOT KNOW?

One could reasonably conclude that PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT’S INTELLIGENCE SOURCES were better than the NEWSPAPERS!

In other words, NINE CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATIONS WERE WRONG: President ROOSEVELT had to have known ……… even a Hawaii newspaper knew!!!

(If you want documented evidence that Roosevelt DID KNOW ABOUT THE ATTACK BEFORE IT HAPPENED, please read the pertinent chapter in the book I wrote entitled THE UNSEEN HAND, AN INTRODUCTION TO THE CONSPIRATORIAL VIEW OF HISTORY. It is discussed in the catalog that follows this report.

Thank you for your interest.

My ADN comment about the body exhibit at the Alaska State Fair

I wrote this comment in our newspaper online, last night, in response to the hit piece on the human body exhibit at the Alaska State Fair, which I had just seen.

“I was AWESTRUCK by how wonderfully Jesus created our bodies. I was almost in tears at times, having never seen how intricate and complex our bodies really are. I also now understand better how my own muscles, ligaments and tendons work together. It was just amazing, and the glory should be fully given to God! Why would anyone want to rob this experience from anyone? The smell was oil based paint. I spoke with one of the painters who painted the pipes and the ceiling overhead. So you’ll make a retraction for your error on the smell, right, Juli[a]?”

She had claimed the smell was from the bodies. I don’t see a retraction. Our newspaper has a monopoly, and is owned by a huge media corporation, McClatchy. I don’t think they care much about fair play and the truth. They almost completely ignored Ron Paul, for example.
Also, it’s been awhile since I’ve commented, so I had to re-register. I tried to use my real name, but their software wouldn’t let me. Not sure why not, but my NOHATE license plate can be seen.

Something’s off about fair’s body exhibit

I wasn’t expecting to be queasy as I walked through the “Our Body: Live Healthy” exhibit of preserved human remains at the Alaska State Fair last week. I’m not squeamish, but the pelt of human skin was a little much. And the eyebrows left on the skinless faces. And the strange chemical smell. All of that might have been OK in another environment, say a museum or a lab. But there is just something off about touring a room full of dissected human bodies at a fair, between Ferris wheel rides and visits to the pork-chop-on-a-stick stand.

Promoters say Our Body is all about science and health. But as I went through the exhibit, which links obvious health messages like “smoking damages lungs” to displays of dissected cadavers injected with plastic polymers, I couldn’t shake the feeling that what was going on was more like a macabre spectacle, like a circus freak show. Were viewers learning something? Maybe. Very little of the health information came as a surprise to me. It functioned more as a way to justify morbid curiosity.

(FOX19) – Mitt Romney accepts the Republican nomination tonight.  While that should be the highlight of the convention, it is quickly being overshadowed by the shocking steps taken by Republican leadership.

We told you earlier this week about rule changes that would strip Republican grassroots from having a say in the future.

Tonight, evidence that the outcome of the vote on those rules was scripted and Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner may have played right along.

[audio] John B. Wells with Robert Mazur: Coast To Coast Am – Banking Fraud Special – 08-25-2012 — THE BANKING SPANKING! — $$$Trillions are laundered and no one goes to jail

I listened to Robert twice. Amazing!

‘Deferred prosecution’ = no one goes to jail

* * *

From: Coast to Coast AM

In the first hour, Robert Mazur shared his insights into the shadowy world of international money laundering, which he learned via a two year undercover investigation for US customs. In recounting his story, Mazur noted that he worked with a Panamanian bank where techniques of money laundering were brazenly discussed and served as a veritable “crossroads of drug traffickers, politicians, and the intelligence community as well.” Mazur explained that many American banks which are caught laundering money, often via the massive illegal drug trade, are offered “deferred prosecution” where the US government monitors their transactions for a year and simply fines the organization. He cited a recent such case where Wachovia was caught soliciting “400 billion dollars in US dollar deposits from account holders in Mexico” between 2004 and 2007. …

In the final hour, John Truman Wolfe contended that the financial crisis has been orchestrated in order to collapse the US dollar and replace it with a “global monetary authority, which is essentially a global financial dictator for the planet.” While he conceded that this sounds extreme, Wolfe revealed that just such an entity, known as the Bank for International Settlements, was created in 2009 at the G20 Summit. The BIS, he said, serves as central bank for all the centrals banks of the G20 nations. Wolfe warned that the “fiscal autonomy of the United States, whatever there was of it,” was usurped by the BIS when President Obama signed on to the agreement. …

Epic Fail: The GOP’s Pitiful Attempt At A ‘Tribute’ To Ron Paul

Epic Fail: The GOP’s Pitiful Attempt At A ‘Tribute’ To Ron Paul

Last night, we reported on the Republican National Convention’s tribute video for Rep. Ron Paul, full of praise for the outspoken sorta-libertarian who has done an exceptional amount to change the conversation in Washington. The video featured various Republicans heaping praise on the outgoing congressman for his consistency, his fiscal responsibility, and his dedication to never backing down on his principles.

Let me be a downer here and say: The GOP isn’t fooling anyone.

It’s clear the party is at least somewhat afraid of losing the Paulites to Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson (or Obama, or non-voting), and this “tribute” video — much like the party’s newfound “respect” for Paul — came off as an overproduced attempt to save face with a group the stodgy, fickle GOP has mistreated, ignored, and wished away over the last five years.

The video made frequent mention of Paul’s efforts to reduce the federal deficit and added boilerplate praise for his “fiscal responsibility” and “never back down”-ness, but it conveniently glossed over the many important issues that have made Paul so attractive to his followers — issues that the Republican Party seems entirely unwilling to incorporate into their platform.

The tribute did make slight nods to Paul’s belief in sound money and his fight to audit the Federal Reserve. But it ignored Paul’s fight to end GOP sacred cows like the costly and futile War on Drugs; his fight to protect civil liberties from executive overreach like the PATRIOT Act; and his battle against an unsustainable foreign policy of “maintaining empire” and playing World Police.

The video also neglected to mention just how Paul would like to cut the deficit.

Instead of the mainstream Republicans’ supposedly “radical” plans to cut from future spending growth, Paul wants to slash budgets left and right… especially the GOP’s sacred-cow national defense. He wants to end all corporate tax loopholes; something the GOP is reluctant to touch. He considers such “pro-business” tax manipulation to be synonymous with crony capitalism.

NY Times Scrubs Mention Of CIA Arming Syrian Rebels — Establishment media careful to hide direct aid to terrorist-aligned FSA

NY Times Scrubs Mention Of CIA Arming Syrian Rebels

Establishment media careful to hide direct aid to terrorist-aligned FSA
Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
Tuesday, August 28, 2012
In an article about France urging Syrian rebels to form a provisional government, the New York Times scrubbed a passage which revealed that the CIA was helping funnel arms to rebel groups that have aligned themselves with Al-Qaeda terrorists.
Version three of the story, posted at 19:45:05 UTC yesterday and entitled France Says It Would Recognize Provisional Syrian Government, included the line, ” American intelligence agents have helped funnel arms to rebel groups.”
However, fifteen minutes later the revelation that the CIA was arming the rebels was removed and replaced with the words, “American intelligence agents have helped to identify the rebel groups that receive arms.”
Copies of the two different versions of the article can be viewed here.
This change of wording, albeit subtle, serves to absolve the CIA of directly arming rebels, who are admittedly being led by Al-Qaeda terrorists as the London Guardian reported last month.
Earlier this month, President Barack Obama signed a secret order authorizing the CIA to aid Syrian rebels in attempting to overthrow Bashar Al-Assad. However, the order stopped short of allowing the CIA to provide lethal weapons.
Despite public claims on behalf of the White House that no weapons are being sent to the rebels, reports that the CIA has been doing precisely that have been circulating for months, including a recent story about CIA spies smuggling 14 stinger missiles into Syria so rebels could defend themselves with ground to air technology.
The New York Times admitted in a June 21 report that the CIA was “steering” arms to Syrian rebels from the Turkish border, but claimed the weapons were paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
The New York Times’ decision to alter the wording of the article is another example of how NATO-aligned media outlets are concerned about overemphasizing western support for the rebels given their involvement in terrorist attacks and other acts of brutality.
Last week, the BBC removed a video clip which documented how FSA rebels were committing war crimes by using prisoners as unwitting suicide bombers.
In a related development, hackers infiltrated Amnesty International’s website last night and used the NGO’s blog platform to post stories about the plight of protesters in Bahrain, Kurds in Turkey, as well as an article entitled Amnesty Calls on UN to stop the US, Qatar and Turkey funding and arming Syria Rebels.
The Associated Press dismissed the article as a “fake blog post” and refused to divulge its content. Yet the story, a cached copy of which can be read here, cited confirmed reports that Syrian rebels are engaging in war crimes, as well as FSA fighters being responsible for the Houla massacre, which was initially blamed on Assad’s forces.

[video] Hot Mic Catches Republican Praising Censorship of Ron Paul

Hot Mic Catches Republican Praising Censorship of Ron Paul

“Well done! Whoever controlled the microphone did a great job”
Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
Wednesday, August 29, 2012
During a roll call of states at the Republican National Convention yesterday, an attendee was caught on a hot mic praising the moment where Ron Paul’s delegate result was accidentally censored as a result of an audio failure.
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKk45kAyZqs]
As representatives of Georgia read out their delegate results, Ron Paul’s name and result was lost as a result of a microphone failure.
“Well done! Whoever controlled the microphone did a great job,” one of the RNC attendees standing nearby was caught saying as others around him snickered.
The results were repeated, proving that the act of censorship was not deliberate, but the attitude of establishment Republicans in welcoming the sidelining of the Texas Congressman is emblematic of how Paul and his delegates have been treated by the GOP establishment at every turn.
Paul-nominated delegations were intentionally seated in the bleachers and on the fringes of the convention center so as to limit their vocal influence as much as possible in Mitt Romney’s home city.
“Delegates from U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, American Samoa and the Northern Marianas Islands get better seats than Ron Paul’s supporters,” reported the Houston Chronicle.
Ron Paul’s campaign manager Jesse Benton, who many have accused of sabotaging the Paul campaign in order to advance his own political career, failed to kick up a fuss and in fact all but welcomed the situation, stating, “I am glad so many of our delegates get to sit close together.”
Representative Justin Amash (R-Mich.) reacted somewhat differently, calling for an audit of the Republican National Committee.
However, Paul supporters were not to be completely silenced, expressing their fury at a last minute rule change which greased the skids for an unchallenged anointment of Mitt Romney by chanting “let him speak” and “point of order” during the convention, while others walked out in protest.
As the New American explains, “The RNC’s rule change effectively disenfranchised Republicans supporting anyone other than the Establishment’s man and left 10 of Maine’s 24 delegates locked out of the process, preventing them from casting votes for Ron Paul.”
This meant Paul was robbed of a chance to speak at the convention in a move that will effectively nullify any future effort for any grass roots candidate to influence the GOP.
The rule change now forces delegates to side with the winner of the popular vote cast at state caucuses or primaries.
“It’s a disgusting, disgusting display of a hostile takeover from the top down,” Maine delegate Ashley Ryan told the L.A. Times.
“If they vote for Romney and he’s democratically elected, then he’s democratically elected. We just want a choice,” said Minnesota delegate Gary Heyer, who confirmed that his state along with Nevada, Minnesota, Iowa, Oregon, Alaska, and the Virgin Islands had all submitted documents nominating Ron Paul.

Should Christians Vote for the Lesser of Two Evils? — We must be free!

From: foodforthethinkers.com

“Pretend with me that you’re an old German on your deathbed today. Would you rather tell your grandchildren, ‘I voted for the Nazis because they seemed better than the Communists and no other party could win’? Wouldn’t you rather be able to rise up and say, ‘I publicly denounced the Nazis and the Communists? We were a minority – 1 or 2 percent – but we stood up for the truth and we were right! We proved not all Germans were mindless torchbearers for tyranny! We were ridiculed, we were beaten and jailed, but we saved this nation’s soul. Now children, go and live your lives in a way to make me proud’?” – Vin Suprynowicz

“When Christians entangle themselves with the kingdoms of the world,
they become worldly in the very worst way.” — Pastor Gregory Boyd

In every election, Christians are told that they have a duty to vote for the lesser of two “electable” evils.
There is nothing Christian about this.
Christians are not to choose between evils:

  • Abhor that which is evil” – Romans 12:9
  • Abstain from all appearance of evil” – I Thessalonians 5:22
  • Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity” – Psalm 141:4
  • “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil” – Proverbs 8:13
  • “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them” – Ephesians 5:11

But what if the only electable parties are evil? Christians are not to do things just because the majority of the secular world does them.

  • “Be not conformed to this world” – Romans 12:2
  • “Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil” – Exodus 23:2
  • “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” – Revelation 18:4


A few historical thoughts:

  • In Germany, in 1933, the two most “electable” parties were the Nazis and the Communists. For which of these did German Christians have a “civic duty” to vote?

In this documentary you will learn how the aerosols being sprayed into our sky are used in conjunction with other technologies to control our weather. Geo-engineers maintain that their models are only for the mitigation of the now widely debunked theory of global warming. What is clear is that the chemtrail/geo-engineering can be used as a way to consolidate an enormous amount of both monetary and political power into the hands of the technocratic elites. Certain international corporations can now leverage weather control to gain power over the Earth’s natural systems. This of course, is being done at the expense of every living thing on the planet. WHY in the World are They Spraying? is a must see film and will revolutionize the environmental movement.

“I realized that there is a part of covering Congress, if you’re doing daily coverage, that is actually sort of colluding with the politicians themselves because so much of what I was doing was actually recording and playing what they say or repeating what they say,” Seabrook told POLITICO. “And I feel like the real story of Congress right now is very much removed from any of that, from the sort of theater of the policy debate in Congress, and it has become such a complete theater that none of it is real. … I feel like I am, as a reporter in the Capitol, lied to every day, all day.

JFK Library Documents Reveal: Senator Suggested False Flag Attack To Kennedy 2 Years Prior To Operation Northwoods Proposal — bombing American troops to provide an excuse for military intervention in Cuba!

This is a BIG admission!
False flag events have been going on for decades: Gulf of Tonkin (to start Vietnam), 9/11 (Bush wars I & II, Obama wars I +), Pearl Harbor (FDR encouraged and let it happen so America would join WWII), USS Liberty (thwarted by the brave men), etc..

Senator Suggested False Flag Attack To Kennedy 2 Years Prior To Operation Northwoods Proposal

Jurriaan Maessen

According to newly released documents by the John F. Kennedy Memorial Library, former Californian democratic senator George Smathers proposed an Operation Northwoods style false flag attack on Gitmo to then Massachusetts senator Kennedy. The Guardian reports Kennedy and Smathers were seriously entertaining the possibility of assassinating Fidel Castro. Kennedy was obviously against the entire idea. Smathers went on to propose the option of bombing American troops to provide an excuse for military intervention in Cuba. Significant about Smather’s confessions is the now apparent fact that the idea of bombing the US naval base at Guantanamo Bay was obviously floating in political circles as well as military ones some time before the actual formalization of the false flag proposals in the Operation Northwoods documents, ultimately rejected by President Kennedy in 1962. …

In the freshly released documents by the JFK Memorial Library, Smathers- who frequently joined John F. Kennedy on trips to the south- admits that he proposed the idea of a false flag attack on Gitmo during a conversation with the President-to-be. When the assassination idea was discarded Mr Smathers suggested provoking an incident at the US Naval base at Guantanamo Bay on the eastern tip of Cuba as a pretext for a US invasion. Smathers:

I did talk to him about a plan of having a false attack made on Guantanamo Bay which would give us the excuse of actually fomenting a fight which would then give us the excuse to go in and do the job. He asked me to write him something about it. And I think I did.”

As noted this very proposal by Smathers in 1960 is stunningly similar to the infamous Northwoods document, signed by chairman Lyman Lemnitzer, in which the Joint Chiefs of Staff propose some pretty criminal things, among which the one proposed by Smathers to Kennedy in 1960. Under “Incidents to establish a credible attack” the Joint Chiefs came up with the following proposals in regards to the US naval base at Gitmo:

1- Start rumors (many). Use clandestine radio.

2- Land friendly Cubans in uniform “over-the-fence” to stage attack on base.

3- Capture Cuban (friendly) saboteurs inside the base.

4- Start riots near the base main gate (friendly Cubans).

5- Blow up ammunition inside the base; start fires.

6- Burn aircraft on air base (sabotage).

7- Lob mortar shells from outside of base into base. Some damage to installations.

8- Capture assault teams approaching from the sea or vicinity of Guantanamo City.

9- Capture militia group which storms the base.

10- Sabotage ship in harbor; large fires.

11- Sink ship near harbor entrance. Conduct funerals for mock-victims.

In a February 2 1962 memorandum titled “Possible Actions to Provoke, Harass or Disrupt Cuba,” written by Gen. William H. Craig and submitted to Brig. Gen. Edward Lansdale, the commander of the Operation Mongoose project outlines Operation Bingo- a plan to “create an incident which has the appearance of an attack on U.S. facilities (GMO) in Cuba, thus providing an excuse for use of U.S. military might to overthrow the current government of Cuba.”

In the context of Operation Mongoose, a highly classified US military operation, the refusal of Kennedy to put his signature under the before mentioned proposals is especially significant. According to countless sources from inside and outside the American intelligence communities, Mongoose was the infrastructure under which the assassination of Kennedy in ’63 has been carried out.

At age 18, Barack Obama admittedly arrived at Occidental College a committed revolutionary Marxist. What was the source of Obama’s foundation in Marxism? Throughout his 2008 Presidential campaign and term in office, questions have been raised regarding Barack Obama’s family background, economic philosophy, and fundamental political ideology. Dreams from My Real Father is the alternative Barack Obama “autobiography,” offering a divergent theory of what may have shaped our 44th President’s life and politics.

In Dreams from My Real Father, Barack Obama is portrayed by a voiceover actor who chronicles Barack Obama’s life journey in socialism, from birth through his election to the Presidency. The film begins by presenting the case that Barack Obama’s real father was Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA propagandist who likely shaped Obama’s world view during his formative years. Barack Obama sold himself to America as the multi-cultural ideal, a man who stood above politics. Was the goat herding Kenyan father only a fairy tale to obscure a Marxist agenda, irreconcilable with American values?

GMO alert: top 10 genetically modified foods to avoid eating
There is a conspiracy of selling out happening in America. Politics and personal interest it would seem determine government policies over and above health and safety issues. When President Obama appointed Michael Taylor in 2009 as senior adviser for the FDA, a fierce protest ensued from consumer groups and environmentalists. Why? Taylor used to be vice president for Monsanto, a multinational interested in marketing genetically modified (GM) food. It was during his term that GMO’s were approved in the US without undergoing tests to determine if they were safe for human consumption. …

1. Corn – Corn has been modified to create its own insecticide. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has declared that tons of genetically modified corn has been introduced for human consumption. Monsanto has revealed that half of the US’s sweet corn farms are planted with genetically modified seed. Mice fed with GM corn were discovered to have smaller offspring and fertility problems.
2. Soy – Soy has also been genetically modified to resist herbicides. Soy products include soy flour, tofu, soy beverages, soybean oil and other products that may include pastries, baked products and edible oil. Hamsters fed with GM soy were unable to have offspring and suffered a high mortality rate.
3. Cotton – Like corn and soy, cotton has been designed to resist pesticides. It is considered food because its oil can be consumed. Its introduction in Chinese agriculture has produced a chemical that kills cotton bollworm, reducing the incidences of pests not only in cotton crops but also in neighboring fields of soybeans and corn. Incidentally, thousands of Indian farmers suffered severe rashes upon exposure to BT cotton.
4. Papaya – The virus-resistant variety of papaya was commercially introduced in Hawaii in 1999. Transgenic papayas comprised three-fourths of the total Hawaiian papaya crop. Monsanto bestowed upon Tamil Nadu Agricultural University in Coimbatore technology for developing papaya resistant to the ringspot virus in India.
5. Rice – This staple food from South East Asia has now been genetically modified to contain a high amount of vitamin A. Allegedly, there are reports of rice varieties containing human genes to be grown in the US. The rice will create human proteins useful for dealing with infant diarrhea in the 3rd world. China Daily, an online journal, reported potential serious public health and environment problems with genetically modified rice considering its tendency to cause allergic reactions with the concurrent possibility of gene transfers.
6. Tomatoes – Tomatoes have now been genetically engineered for longer shelf life, preventing them from easily rotting and degrading. In a test conducted to determine the safety of GM tomatoes, some animal subjects died within a few weeks after consuming GM tomatoes.
7. Rapeseed – In Canada, this crop was renamed canola to differentiate it from non-edible rapeseed. Food stuff produced from rapeseed includes rapeseed oi (canola oil) l used to process cooking oil and margarine. Honey can also be produced from GM rapeseed. German food surveillance authorities discovered as much as a third of the total pollen present in Canadian honey may be from GM pollen. In fact, some honey products from Canada were also discovered to have pollen from GM rapeseed.
8. Dairy products – It has been discovered that 22 percent of cows in the U.S. were injected with recombinant (genetically modified) bovine growth hormone (rbGH). This Monsanto created hormone artificially forces cows to increase their milk production by 15 percent. Milk from cows treated with this milk inducing hormone contains increased levels of IGF-1 (insulin growth factors-1). Humans also have IGF-1 in their system. Scientists have expressed concerns that increased levels of IGF-1 in humans have been associated with colon and breast cancer.
9. Potatoes – Mice fed with potatoes engineered with Bacillus thuringiensis var. Kurstaki Cry 1 were found to have toxins in their system. Despite claims to the contrary, this shows that Cry1 toxin was stable in the mouse gut. When the health risks were revealed, it sparked a debate.
10. Peas – Peas that have been genetically modified have been found to cause immune responses in mice and possibly even in humans. A gene from kidney beans was inserted into the peas creating a protein that functions as a pesticide. …

Morgellon’s disease is not the only condition associated with genetically modified foods. A growing body of evidence has shown that it may cause allergies, immune reactions, liver problems, sterility and even death.

The New York Times Admits That Virtually Every Major News Organization Allows The News To Be Censored By Government Officials

The New York Times Admits That Virtually Every Major News Organization Allows The News To Be Censored By Government Officials

In one of the most shocking articles that the New York Times has ever put out, a New York Times reporter has openly admitted that virtually every major mainstream news organization allows government bureaucrats and campaign officials to censor their stories.  For example, almost every major news organization in the country has agreed to submit virtually all quotes from anyone involved in the Obama campaign or the Romney campaign to gatekeepers for “quote approval” before they will be published.  If the gatekeeper in the Obama campaign does not want a certain quote to get out, the American people will not see it, and the same thing applies to the Romney campaign.  The goal is to keep the campaigns as “on message” as possible and to avoid gaffes at all cost.  But this kind of thing is not just happening with political campaigns.  According to the New York Times, “quote approval” has become “commonplace throughout Washington”.  In other words, if you see a quote in the newspaper from someone in the federal government then it is safe to say that a gatekeeper has almost certainly reviewed that quote and has approved it.  This is another sign that “the free and independent media” in this country is a joke.  What we get from the mainstream media is a very highly filtered form of propaganda, and that is one reason why Americans are turning away from the mainstream media in droves.  People want the truth, and more Americans than ever realize that they are not getting it from the mainstream media.

The following quote comes from the recent article in the New York Times mentioned above and it is absolutely jaw dropping….

The quotations come back redacted, stripped of colorful metaphors, colloquial language and anything even mildly provocative.

They are sent by e-mail from the Obama headquarters in Chicago to reporters who have interviewed campaign officials under one major condition: the press office has veto power over what statements can be quoted and attributed by name.

Most reporters, desperate to pick the brains of the president’s top strategists, grudgingly agree. After the interviews, they review their notes, check their tape recorders and send in the juiciest sound bites for review.

The verdict from the campaign — an operation that prides itself on staying consistently on script — is often no, Barack Obama does not approve this message.

[…]

The following is what Joseph Farah had to say when he learned about this story….

All I can say about these people I once considered “colleagues” is that I am so ashamed of them. I am mortified. They are humiliating themselves and a vital institution for any free society.

It seems the biggest threat to the American tradition of a free and independent press is not government coercion. It’s the willing submission of the press to being handled and managed by government and politicians.

[ video ] Why doctors are more dangerous than guns — Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, reveals why you are 6200% more likely to be killed by your doctor than by a homicidal shooter!

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jhj3u3LoooM]Why doctors are more dangerous than guns – Health Ranger investigation

Published on Aug 2, 2012 by 

This investigation by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, reveals why you are 6200% more likely to be killed by your doctor than by a homicidal shooter. This is based on U.S. government statistics from the Centers for Disease Control, combined with doctor-caused deaths published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

These data show that FDA-approved prescription drugs kill 290 Americans every single day, meaning that for mass shootings to approach that number, you’d have to see a Colorado Batman movie massacre take place EVERY HOUR of every day, 365 days a year.

That’s how dangerous doctors and FDA-approved prescription medications really are. Read more at:

Statistics prove prescription drugs are 16,400% more deadly than terrorists — 783,936 people in the United States die every year from conventional medicine mistakes. That’s the equivalent of six jumbo jet crashes a day for an entire year!

Joel Skousen: Collapse Prediction Reaching a Crescendo — "I don’t think they are so stupid as to pull this off anytime soon."

COLLAPSE PREDICTIONS REACHING A CRESCENDO
I do a lot of consultations for people around the country who have bought my book Strategic Relocation. Of late, somewhere in that conversation, every single client asks me if I think economic collapse is imminent. That’s all they hear about on the internet from Alex Jones, Lindsey Williams, Gerald Celente, Steve Quayle, Doug Hagmann, Bill Deagle and many others.
Despite my attempt in last week’s WAB attempting to bring calm to the internet rumors of “Government preparing for collapse” none of my fellow commentators on the Right seem to be listening. The stories and predictions of imminent monetary and banking collapse, followed by martial law seem to grow each day as one commentator relies on the others’ stories to build their case. It culminated in a Red Alert by Alex Jones after major US banks were reportedly warned by government to prepare for collapse by October of this year. Here’s the Alex Jones warning: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CZzqYg5Cz4
But there’s a problem. This alert is based upon a Reuters article about a two year old investigation into these rumors. Through a FOIC request they found out that each of the too big to fail banks had been requested to develop “living will” type transition plans in case they failed, and how they would like to see their assets transferred. It makes no mention of October, and there isn’t any reason to suspect from the article that the FED or the banks are expecting an imminent collapse of the banking system. What it really implies is that the insider banks want to make sure there is an orderly transfer of their assets to other big banks should they fail. It’s more of a “keep it in the family” preparation than an indication that the world’s money system is losing control.
Nevertheless, each of the largest talk-show hosts on the constitutional Right seem to be reinforcing each other referencing the same unnamed “sources inside government” who keep feeding them this information. Time and again in the past these sources have been proven wrong:
Remember the “Christian law enforcement officer who overheard FEMA officers telling county officials about an imminent bank holiday coming.” This was August of 2010 and turned out to be totally bogus. Remember the Doug Hagmann government source who recently claimed that patriotic high ranking officers in the military are planning a coup to take down these globalist leaders. That too was bogus. Not only will it not happen (the military if full of yesmen at the top) but if the source were telling the truth, he would have killed the plan by announcing it on radio. All the conspirators for liberty would be found out and dead by now.
Alex is covering himself by saying that this banking collapse doesn’t have to happen. If we give this enough publicity, he says, the PTB’s cover will be blown and they won’t do this. No real nefarious plan of the government has ever been revealed before, so there is no historical precedent for this claim that outing this plan can stop it. But it will allow predictors to excuse themselves when this doesn’t happen, rather than apologize for spreading unfounded rumors.
To be clear, I’m not debunking this pattern of disinformation because I dislike Alex or any other of the big-audience talk show hosts. They do a great service most of the time. I just don’t want them or the movement to be discredited by this hype. It’s time the Right settled down to analyze more carefully how the PTB operate and why they won’t pull off a collapse or martial law without probable cause—or at least one that appears probable to the public. Yes, a banking shut down would provide that rationale, but it would also collapse the economy and they would get the blame—and so would Obama (who they want to re-elect).
Yes, the government could certainly pull something like this, but I don’t see any reason why they would and it would convince people there is a huge conspiracy in government. It’s too early to do what WWIII will someday do for them—and give them cover too (so they don’t get the blame).
Another issue bolstering the warnings about collapse leading to Martial Law are the stories about millions of rounds of ammunition purchased by DHS, the IRS and other federal agencies. There was a typographic error exaggerating the number of rounds to be purchased by the Fisheries Enforcement service that got hyped as well. The conspiracy got even more suspicious when it was discover the DHS had blacked out portions of its order posted to the public – specifically, information about the number and type of ammunition sought. Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars.com has the story:
“The Department of Homeland Security has redacted information relating to the quantity of bullets it is buying following a controversy concerning the agency’s purchase of over a billion rounds of ammo, which many fear is a sign the federal government is preparing for civil unrest in the United States [which I am disputing. It’s an eventual threat but not imminent].
“Despite the fact that documents are only supposed to be redacted if authorized by Congress or for national security reasons, a solicitation posted on the FedBizOpps website yesterday concerning ammunition purchases made by the DHS on behalf of Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) contains numerous blacked out sections.
“The Department of Homeland Security’s decision to black out sections of the document, including the number of bullets being purchased, is likely to be related to a massive controversy which has snowballed over the last few weeks pertaining to concerns as to why the federal agency has purchased well over a billion rounds of bullets over the last 6 months alone.
“The DHS’ decision back in March to purchase 450 million rounds of .40-caliber hollow point bullets that are designed to expand upon entry and cause maximum organ damage prompted questions as to why the federal agency required such powerful bullets and in such large quantities merely for training purposes [good point].
“This was followed up by a more recent order for a further 750 million rounds of assorted ammunition, including bullets that can penetrate walls. Given the fact that the DHS is also acquiring riot gear in preparation for civil unrest which could take place at the upcoming DNC, RNC and presidential inauguration, the purchase of ammunition in such massive numbers has stoked fears that the federal government could be preparing to use force against the American people [that’s hype in my opinion when you imply it is imminent].”
There is another reason for the outrageous quantity. In typical bid fashion, requisitions are created for the purpose of establishing a price and a “maximum quantity, not to exceed” that is almost always never actually ordered or received. So, from these documents, you cannot assume the DHS actually intends to take delivery of this quantity—which is absolutely unnecessary even in a martial law scenario.
Martial law doesn’t intend to shoot everyone, but control them and restrict them in time and space. It takes hundreds of thousands of police and military to enforce martial law nationwide, and it slows down the economy to a crawl—just what the PTB need to reassure the public that there’s “no conspiracy.” I don’t think they are so stupid as to pull this off anytime soon.
