(Infowars video | USA Today) Oliver Stone/Peter Kuznick: The Myth of AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM — If the Vietnam Memorial Wall included the 3.8 million dead Vietnamese it would be over 4 MILES LONG!

This is heavy.

In this article, Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick start out with this list of U.S. “unpopular wars and repression that includes Iran, Guatemala, Cuba, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Greece, Indonesia, Chile, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan.”

And then they make this poignant statement about American exceptionalism and the Vietnam war memorial.

Oliver Stone: The myth of American exceptionalism

As a nation, we need to drop the notion that we are outstanding.

Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick

[…]

The U.S. invasion of Vietnam is the most egregious case of external aggression by any nation in the post-WWII era. Martin Luther King, America’s greatest moral voice since the Second World War, said, “If America’s soul becomes totally poisoned, part of the autopsy must read: Vietnam.” However, a recent Gallup poll found that 51% of Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 believe the war was “not a mistake.” In May 2012, Obama announced a 13-year “commemoration” of the Vietnam War, honoring those Americans who fought “heroically to protect the ideals we hold dear as Americans.”

We wonder which ideals, exactly, Obama was referring to. A few years before his death, former secretary of Defense Robert McNamara told students at American University that 3.8 million Vietnamese died in that war. Most college students, when asked in informal surveys, place the number at a quarter of that amount or less. The Vietnam Memorial Wall in D.C. contains the names of 58,272 Americans who died in the war. Its message is that the tragedy of that wretched war was that 58,000 Americans died. The wall is 146 feet long.

Imagine a wall that also contained the names of all the Vietnamese, Cambodians, Laotians, and others who died. Such a wall would be over 4 miles long. It would not only be a fitting memorial to all the victims of “American exceptionalism,” it would be a perfect tombstone for that most dangerous of American myths.

School Test Teaches Kids: “Commands Of Government Officials Must Be Obeyed By All”

Papers produced by global education corporation; Part of ‘No Child Left Behind’ program

Steve Watson
Infowars.com
Oct 29, 2013

A parent of a ten year old was shocked to discover a grammar and writing test paper that their child brought home from school reads more like document from an authoritarian country such as China.

The parent sent a portion of the test paper to Infowars, revealing that it contains sentences such as “The commands of government officials must be obeyed by all.”

The paper uses such sentences and asks school children to replace certain words in order to make the sentence contain a possessive noun.

Others within the paper include:

“The job of a president is not easy.”

“He makes sure the laws of the country are fair”

“The wants of an individual are less important than the needs of a nation”

Here is the portion of the paper Infowars received:

Upon further investigation it appears that the paper is part of a set produced by Pearson Education, a global corporation that provides education publishing and assessment services to schools in the US and the rest of the world. Pearson is the world’s largest for-profit education business.

The particular sentence about everyone obeying government commands appears in other Pearson papers, such as this fifth grade grammar test.

THE ARK CONSPIRACY By Jonathan Gray

Cover-ups, Betrayals and Miracles. The cloak-and-dagger story behind the discovery of Noah’s Ark and the attempts to suppress the news. Why some people reject the discovery. Solid evidence that this is the ‘real’ Noah’s Ark. A true-life thriller – archaeology at its most exciting.
http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rc…
=======================================

[SNIP] Later expeditions also located what appears to be Noah’s first home after the flood and the grave sites of Mr. and Mrs. Noah. The graves were evidenced by petroglyphs on the large tombstones. These were within ~5 miles of the Ark. Unfortunately, the graves were subsequently exhumed by grave robbers. The Turkish government later reported that a bodice that Mrs. Noah was wearing, which was covered with large precious stones, was sold on the Turkish black market for around $75 million. One of the burial crypts was later recovered and is in a back room of a museum in Ankara, Turkey. It is 18 feet long! Enormous human bones appeared in some of the hotels in the area soon after the graves were robbed. The size of the bones suggests that the Antediluvians were between 12-15 feet tall! [SNIP]
http://www.bibleplus.org/discoveries/…

[SNIP] Excerpt from Life magazine…
“While routinely examining aerial photos of his country, a Turkish army captain suddenly gaped at the picture shown above. There, on a mountain 20 miles south of Mt. Ararat, the biblical landfall of Noah’s Ark, was a boat-shaped form about 500 feet long. The captain passed on the word. Soon an expedition including American scientists set out for the site.

At 7,000 feet, in the midst of crevasses and landslide debris, the explorers found a clear, grassy area shaped like a ship and rimmed with steep, packed-earth sides. Its dimensions are close to those given in Genesis: ‘The length of the ark shall be 300 cubits, the breadth of it 50 cubits, and the height of it 30 cubits,’ that is, 450x75x45 feet. A quick two-day survey revealed no sign that the object was man made. Yet a scientist in the group says nothing in nature could create such a symmetrical shape. A thorough excavation may be made another year to solve the mystery.” [SNIP]

Joel Skousen: Russian Missile Forces to be Upgraded by 2021 — Clinton’s order (PDD-60) in 1997 to the missile forces to “not rely on Launch on Warning” but to “prepare to retaliate afterward” is suicide!

RUSSIAN MISSILE FORCES TO BE UPGRADED BY 2021

You will notice an almost total absence of coverage or concern for Russian military growth. It’s like it doesn’t exist in the US media, even when the Russians openly publish it in Russian sources. Here’s an example that should concern us all, as it confirms my estimates of timing relative to when Russia will be ready for a future strike on the West:

(RIA Novosti) – Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN) will be fully equipped with fifth-generation missile systems by 2021, a Defense Ministry spokesman said Wednesday. The proportion of modern missiles in the RVSN will reach around 60 percent by 2016 and 98 percent by 2021, Col. Igor Yegorov said.

In addition to the fifth-generation Yars and Topol-M missiles, new command and control centers are being built and new communications, security and other systems put in place, he said. Russia’s missile forces are being modernized in a bid to enable them to penetrate the anti-missile defense systems being fielded by NATO and the United States, Russian officials have said previously.

And, unlike US systems which are purposefully encumbered by humans transmitting codes before launch, the Russians are automating theirs so that human factors won’t be able to block a nuclear launch once initiated:

Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces will use a new-generation automated command and control system from 2016, the Defense Ministry said Thursday. The new system, based on the digital transmission of operations orders bypassing intermediary levels straight to the launch pad, allows the prompt targeting and retargeting of missiles and ensures the effective command and control of all units and subunits, Defense Ministry spokesman Dmitry Andreyev said.

The fifth-generation system will use wire, radio and satellite communication channels that are well protected from jamming and other forms of interference, he added. The system is compact and reliable and boasts low energy consumption, secure information transmission and imperviousness to external impacts, the spokesman said.

Compare this rapidly increasing readiness with the static nuclear silo based defenses the US has, and which are vulnerable to both human errors and external attack. The US missile forces have received a lot of negative publicity of late due to the sacking of its top military commander for gambling and ethics charges. Now, a leak has revealed that a couple of missileer officers have been reassigned for leaving a blast security door open while one was asleep.

The following AP article talks about this technical violation of the rules and promotes some disinformation about the launch of US missiles:

— Air Force officers entrusted with the launch keys to long-range nuclear missiles have been caught twice this year leaving open a blast door that is intended to help prevent a terrorist or other intruder from entering their underground command post, Air Force officials said.

The blast doors are never to be left open if one of the crew members inside is asleep – as was the case in both these instances – out of concern for the trouble an intruder could cause, including the compromising of secret launch codes... The officers, known as missileers, are custodians of keys that could launch nuclear hell.

The last part is only partly true. The missileers have only half the launch codes. They must receive the other part from the “nuclear suitcase” which always accompanies the President. Without getting these launch codes from the president, no missiles can be launched. So this is hype about the silos being in danger of a terror attack.

In fact, even the blast door is not the door to the outside. An unauthorized intruder would have to get past other heavy duty steel doors and get down the secure-code elevator even to approach the blast doors. Entry to that elevator is controlled from an above-ground building where the officers initially enter and have their passes checked. All are secured with armed guards and cameras. All of this security before the blast door is what gives the watch officers some feeling of complacency about the need to keep this door closed if one is sleeping (allowable on a 24 hour shift).

What the article is talking about is the underground launch center, known as a capsule for its pill-like shape, buried in the ground. Each capsule operates 10 Minuteman-3 missiles (3 warheads per missile). The missiles are also underground in reinforced concrete silos with blast doors on top which open for launch.

The real weakness of our system is that we have fixed silos, easily and precisely targeted, while the Russians use mobile launchers which are always being moved around—very hard to find and hit. That is why the US must rely on “Launch on warning,” meaning that once Russian or Chinese missiles are detected by our satellites and on the way, all our missiles must be launched to avoid being hit by the first salvo of incoming warheads. No surface blast door covering the silos is going to withstand a full nuclear ground blast.

That is also why Clinton’s order (PDD-60) in 1997 to the missile forces to “not rely on Launch on Warning” but to “prepare to retaliate afterward” is suicide. This order is still secret and has never been made public, except in synopsis form by Arms Control Today, which helped draft the new nuclear policy.

Our missile forces are still on alert and they still think they are going to launch on warning, but their ability to do so depends on getting the codes from the president. All the globalist handlers of the president have to do to ensure we absorb a nuclear first strike is to not release the launch codes or create some pretense of technical difficulty.

Other evidence of Russia emerging from the phony “fall of the Soviet Union” is that she is starting to actively export military equipment to foreign clients: Space Daily.com reports from Baghdad (UPI):

As Iraq’s government grapples with a rising al-Qaida insurgency in which thousands have been killed, officials say the military has started taking delivery of Russian arms as part of a landmark $4.3 billion contract signed in October 2012… 30 of the all-weather Night Hunter helicopter gunships and 50 Pantsyr S-1 gun-missile short-range air-defense systems.

The 2012 contract marked Russia’s return to a major Middle Eastern market it had dominated during the Soviet era. During Saddam Hussein’s rule, that ended in April 2003, Moscow was Iraq’s main arms supplier.

Ted Cruz’s Wife is a Goldman Sachs VP

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
October 22, 2013

The establishment specializes in the old fashion bait-and-switch. It knows the people are sick and tired of government as usual and they want change. Obama was billed as Mr. Hope and Change. But once installed in the White House, he immediately continued and expanded the Bush agenda, that is to say the agenda of the political establishment. Barry, like his predecessor, is little more than a frontispiece, a teleprompter reader for the elite.

Now that we’re fed up with Obama, it is time for the next round of phony change. That change will likely be represented by reformulated Tea Party Republicans Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. [Rand Paul would probably be real change. If Cruz is a true insider like this article indicates, the globalists may be championing Cruz so Rand will be overshadowed – editor]

“The Republican establishment despises Ted Cruz. And that’s great news for the senator from Texas: It’s the most prominent sign that he’s the front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination,” the National Journal opined last week.

The faux government shutdown with its intense partisan squabbling and meticulously orchestrated theatrics provided Cruz and the reformulated Tea Party Republicans with a stage to present themselves as the answer to politics as usual. According to the script, a staid GOP dominated by the likes of old guard John McCain and John Boehner is afraid of Cruz and the supposedly renegade faction of Tea Party activists in the House. But it’s all show business.

For all his allure as an outsider, Canada-born Ted Cruz is in fact an insider playing a role similar to the one Barack Obama played back in 2008 when his handlers portrayed him as the hope and change candidate out of nowhere.

Cruz’s insider connection is a family affair. His wife, Heidi, is a Goldman Sachs vice president in Houston, Texas, according to her LinkedIn profile. She also served as an economic advisor for the Bush administration. In 2011, a Cruz campaign spokesman portrayed Heidi as “an expert on North American trade,” in other words she is savvy when it comes to globalist transnational trade deals like NAFTA, the single most destructive government move against the American worker in history.

She was also a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations (see her bio at Claremont McKenna College), a position that expired prior to her husband’s attack on the globalist organization. In October, 2011, Ted Cruz reportedly characterized the CFR as “a pernicious nest of snakes” that is “working to undermine our sovereignty.” He previously called the CFR “a pit of vipers” during a speech delivered on October 13, 2011, to a Republican women’s group in Sugarland, Texas. Ben Smith, writing for Politico, attempted to associate Cruz with Texas residents Ron Paul and Alex Jones in order to pass him off as a rightwing conspiracy theorist on the same page as fringe libertarians and starry-eyed constitutionalists. He is, of course, nothing of the sort.

Like the domestication of the Tea Party and the expulsion of its more purist liberty-minded activists, the Cruz the warrior pitted against the establishment motif is another slick subversion directed at the political elite’s most puissant opposition – the real Tea Party and a threatening number of patriot activists gnawing at the edges of the political establishment.

28 Signs That The West Coast Is Being Absolutely Fried With Nuclear Radiation From Fukushima

From: Michael Snyder

28 Signs That The West Coast Is Being Absolutely Fried With Nuclear Radiation From Fukushima

 By Michael Snyder, on October 21st, 2013

Fukushima Radiation

The map above comes from the Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center.  It shows that radiation levels at radiation monitoring stations all over the country are elevated.  As you will notice, this is particularly true along the west coast of the United States.  Every single day, 300 tons of radioactive water from Fukushima enters the Pacific Ocean.  That means that the total amouont of radioactive material released from Fukushima is constantly increasing, and it is steadily building up in our food chain.  Ultimately, all of this nuclear radiation will outlive all of us by a very wide margin.  They are saying that it could take up to 40 years to clean up the Fukushima disaster, and meanwhile countless innocent people will develop cancer and other health problems as a result of exposure to high levels of nuclear radiation.  We are talking about a nuclear disaster that is absolutely unprecedented, and it is constantly getting worse.  The following are 28 signs that the west coast of North America is being absolutely fried with nuclear radiation from Fukushima…

1. Polar bears, seals and walruses along the Alaska coastline are suffering from fur loss and open sores

Wildlife experts are studying whether fur loss and open sores detected in nine polar bears in recent weeks is widespread and related to similar incidents among seals and walruses.

The bears were among 33 spotted near Barrow, Alaska, during routine survey work along the Arctic coastline. Tests showed they had “alopecia, or loss of fur, and other skin lesions,” the U.S. Geological Survey said in a statement.

2. There is an epidemic of sea lion deaths along the California coastline…

At island rookeries off the Southern California coast, 45 percent of the pups born in June have died, said Sharon Melin, a wildlife biologist for the National Marine Fisheries Service based in Seattle. Normally, less than one-third of the pups would die.   It’s gotten so bad in the past two weeks that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration declared an “unusual mortality event.”

3. Along the Pacific coast of Canada and the Alaska coastline, the population of sockeye salmon is at a historic low.  Many are blaming Fukushima.

4. Something is causing fish all along the west coast of Canada to bleed from their gills, bellies and eyeballs.

(video) Bizarre UPDATE on “House stenographer Diane Reidy Dragged Off Floor Yelling About Freemasons and God [IN THE ELEVATOR]”

On October 17, I posted: (video) House stenographer Diane Reidy Dragged Off Floor Yelling About Freemasons and God [IN THE ELEVATOR]

The next day, thanks to a comment posted at ToBeFree, I discovered that the audio had been dubbed from what she said in the elevator while being escorted out of the House, and I revised my post.

Here is the latest from Paul Watson. It does seem like she was working with the white haired guy, and it’s possible it was mind-control. But I’m thinking that’s a big stretch here, especially since she is exposing a secret society, the Freemasons.

It would be interesting to hear what she actually said on the House floor.

Published on Oct 21, 2013

Does bizarre footage from the moments preceding her ‘Freemason’ rant on the House floor suggest Dianne Reidy was a victim of mind control?

A man with white hair appears to give Reidy a nod, causing her demeanor to immediately shift as she enters a trance-like state before walking towards the podium to deliver her rant. A black man sat opposite appears to react to Reidy’s strange behavior. The man then immediately goes to his cellphone to send a text message.

Also learn why we never actually heard Reidy’s actual rant when she was stood in front of the speaker’s podium – the media simply dubbed over her words from when she was being dragged away in a different part of the building.

Joel Skousen: The Russia Threat Continues to Grow

[…]

THE RUSSIA THREAT CONTINUES TO GROW

The Russians have finally moved on from their formidable Topol M missiles and developed a new ballistic missile that has a faster boost phase to thwart the US anti-missile system being placed in Europe. Bill Gertz reports:

The new RS-26 missile will be equipped with three multiple independently targetable re-entry vehicles, or MIRVs. [Multiple Independent Reentry Vehicles]. What is new is that the warheads are [mounted on] SUPER-HIGH SPEED vehicles capable of maneuvering from missile interceptors.

A House defense aide said the new missile appears to violate the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, based on recent tests and Russian statements that it is designed to thwart U.S. defenses. The treaty bans missiles with ranges of between 310 and 3,400 miles

The maneuvering warheads are considered advanced technology that will increase the precision targeting of the missile system. The missile also reportedly will be equipped with a high-performance FUEL that BOOSTS acceleration shortly after launch, a feature useful for avoiding anti-missile interceptors. The Russians are advertising this as a system capable of defeating U.S. missile defenses in Europe.

At the same time, the STATE DEPARTMENT is accepting Russia’s claim that this is an ICBM and doesn’t violate INF. It can’t be both.

That is right. The Russians already pulled out of the INF treaty [Intermediate Nuclear Forces], so why does the US continue to pretend they are in compliance and need to be held to its promises? A missile capable of this much acceleration has to be small enough to be an intermediate missile only. Full-sized ballistic missiles for long range are much too large to have enough acceleration to avoid ABM interceptors.

Once again, we have to ask “How can the US continue to justify increased disarmament of warheads and launch vehicles in the face of this Russian violation of past treaties?” The answer can only be because the US wants this war, and has to keep disarming to help Russia so they have the confidence to finally strike.

Jim Garrow: Do not go to the obamacare website for any reason. They will get the information that they want…

I have also heard that the reason the website doesn’t work is that they hired programmers in India, and the software is a mess that could take many months to fix.

Jim’s advice is something to really consider. The unaffordable “affordable” health care plan, known as Obamacare is totally unconstitutional, and reeks of Big Brother.

From: Jim Garrow’s Facebook page

“It would appear good people that the program known as Obamacare only cares about Obama. The name should give it away. We already know that it is unaffordable and they only care about Obama but that’s not all. Having inquired about how much it will cost you, the Obamacare custodians, the IRS have your IP address and will now seek you out to pay the fine. This is one big data trap and some fell for it. Why do you think it doesn’t work and why it only gives some information to some people. It is a random sampler of all it surveys. They don’t want people to sign up , they just want people to look at any level so that they can capture your IP address and then track you to their hearts content. Welcome to 1984 or its real Big Brother, Obamacare. DO NOT GO TO THE OBAMACARE WEBSITE FOR ANY REASON. THEY WILL GET THE INFORMATION THAT THEY WANT EVEN IF YOU JUST GLANCE AT THE FIRST PAGE. ONE LOOK AND LIKE MEDUSSA YOU TURN TO STONE, OR MORE ACCURATELY YOU TURN INTO AN INFORMATION SLAVE. ONCE THEY HAVE YOUR IP ADDRESS THEY HAVE YOU AND EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU. OBAMACARE IS THE BIGGEST SCAM EVER DEVISED TO GET YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH NO HOLDS BARRED AND NO INFORMATION DEEMED IRRELEVANT.

Internal TSA Documents: Body Scanners, Pat Downs Not For Terrorists

Internal TSA Documents: Body Scanners, Pat Downs Not For Terrorists

TSA’s ‘Administrative Record’ admits ineffective security theater

The TSA has quietly admitted there is no actual “threat-addressing” basis for employing nude body scanners or invasive pat down procedures at airports, a notion many travelers who are weary of the federal agency’s borderline sexual molestation have long suspected but were hard-pressed to prove.

The evidence was found in sealed court documents, available through the PACER.gov website, regarding engineer and blogger Jon Corbett’s ongoing litigation over the constitutionality of the agency’s loathsome security practices.

In a redacted version of the appellant’s brief, filed by Corbett on October 7 with the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, several portions of the Summary of Facts section were blacked out, raising questions as to the nature of the censored information.

But in a sealed version of the same documents obtained through PACER.gov (and available here), the redacted sections appear with incriminating clarity.

Through Redactions, TSA Admits Terror Threats are Slim to Nonexistent

Redaction shows TSA is aware explosives on airplanes “are extremely rare.’ (click to enlarge)

A section detailing how “The TSA Has Misled The Public As to the Likelihood of the Threat ‘Addressed’ By Nude Body Scanners and Pat Downs,” includes a blacked out portion concerning the TSA’s knowledge that “explosives on airplanes are extremely rare.”

“For example, the TSA analyzed hijackings in 2007 and found 7 hijacking incidents across the globe, but none of them involved actual explosive devices,” Corbett explains in the brief, adding that the last attempt to bring an explosive onboard an airplane through a U.S. airport occurred 35 years ago.

Another redacted section highlights the government’s concession that, “due to hardened cockpit doors and the willingness of passengers to challenge hijackers,” it would be difficult to have a repeat of 9/11.

Health benefits of cinnamon

From: Natural News

Spice for life – Health benefits of cinnamon

[…]

Let’s have a close look at some of the health benefits of cinnamon:

Anti-clotting

[…]

Antimicrobial

The essential oils in cinnamon are antimicrobial and can stop various types of bacterial and fungal growths. The antimicrobial properties of cinnamon are very effective, so it can also be used as an alternative to various food preservatives.

Boosts brain function

Smelling the cinnamon scent can also boost brain activity. In research reported by WHfoods.com, cinnamon helped in enhancing the cognitive process in participants with the following activities:

• Working memory
• Tasks related to attentional processes
• Virtual recognition memory
• Visual-motor speed while working on any computer-based program

Improved colon health and protection against cardiovascular diseases

[…]

Blood sugar control

Cinnamon is a very powerful antioxidant and also helps in controlling blood sugar at various levels. This helps in slowing down the rate at which the stomach empties after meals and improving the insulin response in people suffering from type 2 diabetes. Cinnamon is so effective that just one gram of it a day can reduce blood sugar levels, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and total cholesterol in people suffering from diabetes. According to WHfoods.com, cinnamon also reduces risk of cardiovascular diseases in people with type 2 diabetes.

Warming Effects

Cinnamon is best for providing warmth to the body during a flu or cold. In fact, it is widely used in traditional Chinese medicine due to its warming properties.

(video) House stenographer Diane Reidy Dragged Off Floor Yelling About Freemasons and God [IN THE ELEVATOR]

OOOOPS/CORRECTION! The audio was from what she said in the elevator, not on the floor. Shimie left this comment:

“Sorry, OK just so we are clear, the audio dubbed over Diane Reidy when she was at the microphone on the house floor giving her “Praise God” speech is not authentic and does not belong to her moment at the house podium. The audio belongs to a few moments later when she is in the elevator and being removed from the building. http://voices.suntimes.com/early-and-often/sweet/house-stenographer-exclusive-sun-times-video

I thought Diane was wearing a wireless lavaliere mic. I did notice it wasn’t picking up the sound of the hammer, but thought maybe proximity….

House stenographer Diane Reidy VIDEO Dragged Off Floor Yelling About Freemasons And God bizarre outburst “Praise be to GOD!” as Congress voted | House Stenographer Removed from House Floor Yelling About God and Freemasons – VIDEO and AUDIO House stenographer unleashes bizarre outburst as Congress voted on bill to reopen government, settle debt limit

House stenographer unleashes bizarre outburst as Congress voted on bill to reopen government, settle debt limit
Reporters on hand for Wednesday night’s vote captured a ranting woman — said to be House stenographer Diane Reidy — yelling on the House floor about Freemasons and God.

quote the House Stenographer: “He will not be mocked. He will not be mocked. Don’t touch me. He will not be mocked,” the stenographer shouted as she was taken away by U.S. Capitol Police. “The greatest deception here is not ‘one nation under God.’ It never was. Had it been, it would not have been.” She continued, “The Constitution would not have been written by Freemasons. They go against God.” “You cannot serve two masters. Praise be to God, Lord Jesus Christ.”

In this image from House Television, with partial voting totals on the screen, a woman, at the rostrum just below the House presiding officer, seen between the “yea” and “nay” in a white shirt, is removed from the chamber after she began shouting.

The shutdown of the government shutdown sent one woman into meltdown mode.

The ranting woman, reportedly a House stenographer, unleashed a bizarre tirade Wednesday night — just as the chamber hurriedly voted to pass a bill to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling.

Security officers quickly escorted her out of the House chamber following the outburst — which invoked God and the Freemasons.

“He will not be mocked! He will not be mocked!” the woman raved as she stepped onto the dais and took over the microphone on the House floor.

“Don’t touch me!” she cried as the officers started to pull her away by the arms.

“This is not one nation under God. It never was,” she said. “Had it been … the Constitution would not have been written by Freemasons, they go against God.”

Of the 39 men who signed the Constitution, 13 were reportedly Freemasons.

“You cannot serve two masters!” she finished, leaving members and staffers stunned.

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) said the stenographer is a familiar and liked figure in the House, The Washington Post reported.

The bizarre speech came as Congress passed an eleventh-hour deal to avert a disastrous default by the U.S. government on its debts.

FEDS PURPOSELY MAKING LIFE DIFFICULT OVER SHUTDOWN

The list of vindictive federal closures is growing longer and a pattern is emerging. The Obama administration is restoring military-related contracts but going out of their way to antagonize any individual that has even an ancillary connection with federal land or parks. It’s no secret that during the 1995 government shutdown the Clinton Administration tried to inconvenience the general public in order to bring pressure on Republicans, but this administration is pushing things further by taking it out on the little guy and resisting any attempt by Congress or volunteers to ameliorate the shutdown. The Administration has even refused offers that would help individuals or small businesses that have been kept from working because of the shutdown. It’s as if this government wants this experience to be as nasty as possible. Still, the blame is squarely being laid on the Administration—not Congress (though you’d never know that by listening to the media).

As I pointed out last week, the Pentagon shut down a lot of core military contractors by furloughing civilian workers. In today’s military nothing runs without civilian contractors. Those furloughs lasted only a couple of days before Obama ordered them all back to work. But no such leniency was granted to ordinary people whose livelihood is connected with federal lands, parks or bureaucratic permissions.

Wes Pruden, former editor of the Washington Times pulled out his pen again to document some of the outrageous actions of the administration.

The Park Service appears to be closing streets on mere whim and caprice. The rangers even closed the parking lot at Mount Vernon, where the plantation home of George Washington is a favorite tourist destination. That was after they barred the new World War II Memorial on the Mall to veterans of World War II. But the government does not own Mount Vernon; it is privately owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association. The ladies bought it years ago to preserve it as a national memorial. The feds closed access to the parking lots this week, even though the lots are jointly owned with the Mount Vernon ladies.

“It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation,” an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”

What’s even more troubling is why none of the Republican leadership have gotten a hold of Pruden to ask who made this statement. Can you imagine the public relations disaster this would be for the administration if the Republicans would put this guy on the witness stand and force him to reveal who gave the orders to “make life difficult” for the people? Perhaps House Speaker Boehner isn’t really there to win this battle.

There are many stories of public outrage that I could cite but few are as egregious as what a few seniors experienced while on a tour bus going through Yellowstone National Park. John Macone has the story with added commentary:

Pat Vaillancourt went on a trip last week that was intended to showcase some of America’s greatest treasures. Instead, the Salisbury resident said she and others on her tour bus witnessed an ugly spectacle that made her embarrassed, angry and heartbroken for her country. Rangers systematically sent visitors out of the park, though some groups that had hotel reservations — such as Vaillancourt’s — were allowed to stay for two days. Those two days started out on a sour note, she said.

The bus stopped along a road when a large herd of bison passed nearby, and seniors filed out to take photos. Almost immediately, an armed ranger came by and ordered them to get back in, saying they couldn’t “recreate.” The tour guide, who had paid a $300 fee the day before to bring the group into the park, argued that the seniors weren’t “recreating,” just taking photos. “She responded and said, ‘Sir, you are recreating,’ and her tone became very aggressive,” Vaillancourt said.

Vaillancourt was one of thousands of people who found themselves in a national park as the federal government shutdown went into effect on Oct. 1. For many hours her tour group, which included senior citizen visitors from Japan, Australia, Canada and the United States, were locked in a Yellowstone National Park hotel under armed guard.

The tourists were treated harshly by armed park employees, she said, so much so that some of the foreign tourists with limited English skills thought they were under arrest. When finally allowed to leave, the bus was not allowed to halt at all along the 2.5-hour trip out of the park, not even to stop at private bathrooms that were open along the route.

“It was like they brought out the armed forces. Nobody was saying, ‘we’re sorry,’ it was all like — ” as she clenched her fist and banged it against her forearm. “They looked like Hulk Hogans, armed. They told us you can’t go outside,” she said. “Some of the Asians who were on the tour said, ‘Oh my God, are we under arrest?’ They felt like they were criminals.”

Barricades were erected around Old Faithful, and the seniors were locked inside the hotel, where armed rangers stayed at the door. The bus trip made headlines in Livingston, where the local newspaper Livingston Enterprise interviewed the tour guide, Gordon Hodgson, who accused the park service of “Gestapo tactics.” “A lot of people who were foreign said they wouldn’t come back (to America),” she said.

Some Western state governors have tried to get the feds to let them help out to keep the parks open, but the answer is always “no.” Last week when World War II veterans broke down the yellow tape closing off the World War II memorial, the government responded by bringing in more sturdy wire barricades and guards were posted. How’s that supposed to save money at monuments who had no guards or employees prior to the shutdown? John Nolte documents this and other cases of the Obama Administration unnecessarily inflicting public pain during this shutdown:

While our president still enjoys his essential employees and locations: the White House chefs, Camp David, and a military golf course, there doesn’t seem to be any question that in mercenary pursuit of a political win, this White House is determined to unreasonably punish as many everyday people as possible. And this includes children sick with cancer. That might sound like hyperbole, but it is not.

Child Cancer Patients Used as Pawns: The program at the National Institutes of Health which offers last-chance experimental cancer treatments for children suffering from cancer also got the ax. Republicans in Congress offered to fund the NIH program separately but the White House has threatened a veto.

Nolte says, “The media may or may not report on these individual occurrences, but what they will never do is provide the American people with the full context and scope of Obama’s shrill pettiness. Below is a list of illogical, unnecessary, and shockingly spiteful moves our government is making in the name of essential and non-essential. [I’ve omitted the ones I reported on previously]

The Republican National Committee has offered to cover any costs required to keep the WWII memorial open. The White House refused. Moreover, like the NIH, the GOP will pass a compromise bill that would fund America’s national parks. Obama has threatened to veto that bill. The Vietnam Memorial and Iwo Jima Memorial closed, barricades erected even though never manned.

Furloughed Military Chaplains Not Allowed to Work for Free – Furloughed military chaplains willing to celebrate Mass and baptisms for free have been told they will be punished for doing so.

Business Stops In Florida Keys – Small businesses, hunters, and commercial fisherman can’t practice their trade. While the feds have deemed the personnel necessary to keep this area open “non-essential,” the “enforcement officers” to ensure no business is done are “essential.”

Obama Forces Residents Out of Private Homes – “The government shutdown is being felt close to home for some locals. They say they’re being forced out of private homes on Lake Mead because they sit on federal land.”

Obama Shuts Down a Road That Goes Through CO Park: “The Forest Service announcement, in turn, led the Pitkin County commissioners to order that Maroon Creek Road be shut down at the height of the colorful leaf-changing season.

Obama Blocks People From LOOKING at Mt. Rushmore – “Blocking access to trails and programs at South Dakota’s most popular attraction was one thing, but state officials didn’t expect Congress’ budget stalemate to shut down a view of Mount Rushmore. The National Park Service placed cones along highway viewing areas outside Mount Rushmore this week, barring visitors from pulling over and taking pictures of the famed monument. [Similarly State Route 9 in Utah, a critical road that goes right through the beauty of Zion’s National Park, had to be left open but park police are ticketing people who get out of their cars to view the scenery.]

Crucial USDA Websites Taken Down – “The U.S. Department of Agriculture has turned off its entire website in response to the government shutdown, leaving farmers, reporters and others with no way to access any of the agency’s information online [as if it costs anything to leave it up]. USDA’s total website shutdown goes far beyond the response of other federal agencies, and seems to be part of an effort to make people feel the effects of the shutdown. This website is down and yet the ObamaCare, White House, the first lady’s websites are up.

Arizona Offers to Fund Grand Canyon, Obama Says ‘Drop Dead’ – “Obama has ordered the Grand Canyon to stay closed, even after the state of Arizona and local businesses have offered to cover the costs necessary to keep it open. In other words, the shutdown isn’t about the money — it’s about hurting the American people just because he can. [In today’s news Obama agreed to let some states fund the parks to keep them open, but he’s not offering to let them have the entrance fees the federal government collects]

Amber Alert Website Taken Offline – CNN reported that bad press was a factor in the site going back up.

Federal Prison Guards Not Getting Paid, Inmates Are – “Most of the employees at the federal prison in Forrest City are working without knowing when they will get a paycheck because of the government shutdown, but some of the inmates who get paid for the work they do inside will have no problem collecting their money.”

King Crab Season Threatened by Government Shutdown – “The Alaska king crab season is set to start soon, but all the fishing boats will have to stay docked because the government must sign off on permits and quotas. “Fisherman stand to lose hundreds of thousands of dollars unless lawmakers make a compromise.”

Columbia Island and Washington Sailing Marina Closed – Email from reader: “My husband received an email from WSM saying that boat owners could only go to their boats to remove items. If they leave the slip with their boat they are not allowed to return to their (paid for) slip [until] the government re opens.”

IRS Collections Operational, Taxpayer Advocate Office Closed

Eleven Hundred Square Miles of Florida Ocean Closed – Email: “You omitted the ban on Florida charter boat captains taking fishermen into an 1,100 square mile section of ocean of the coast of Tampa. Apparently, government resources patrol it.”

Shutdown Denies Death Benefits to Families of Fallen Soldiers – “The families of five U.S. service members who were killed over the weekend in Afghanistan have been notified that they won’t be receiving the $100,000 benefit normally wired to relatives within 36 hours of the death. The “death gratuity” is intended to help cover funeral costs and help with immediate living expenses until survivor benefits typically begin.”

The only reason I can conceive for this “stick it to the people” attitude is that whoever is running this shutdown show in the White House put out the word to “make life difficult” thinking he was doing the same thing that Clinton did in the late 90s. But overzealous bureaucrats (political appointees) in the Park Service and elsewhere went overboard to such an extent that the public backlash was aiming at Obama rather than the Republicans. So rather than admit error, they gone silent and relied on the media to not give coverage to these egregious and unnecessarily painful measures.

Of course, the White House also had the complicity of the Republican leadership, who just announced that both sides had agreed NOT to criticize or attack each other. Let me explain why this only benefits Obama: Prior to the agreement, the media was only blaming the Republicans, and wasn’t airing the complaints of citizens who were blaming the administration. So now Republicans have muzzled their own cause (if they ever intended to use it…) by agreement, to ensure they can’t put the blame for the worst actions on Obama where it belongs.

Where do we go from here? The GOP led House of Representatives has offered concessions to ameliorate the damage of the selective shutdown, but Obama rejects most of them. The House passed a resolution ensuring that all furloughed employees would get back pay for the time they were furloughed. I hope that also applies to the FAA maintenance personnel who are still working but not getting paid. They keep the electronics and navigation systems running so that the Air Traffic Control system still functions. Obviously, those are essential personnel whose pay should never have been cut.

As for the rest of the furloughed federal employees, many of their jobs should be eliminated, and Congress just undid any savings the partial shutdown afforded by offering to pay back wages. That’s like saying we are implementing a balanced budget amendment but offering to pay the wages of everyone whose jobs must be eliminated. Nonsense.
