UN criticizes U.S. for human-rights violations. Ironically, the most vocal critics are from nations with the worst record on human rights. The criticism is based on statements contained in a report submitted to the UN last year by President Obama. This is preparing the way for the U.S. eventually to be subject to UN sanctions.

AT&T moves into health business. Anticipating that government will take over the medical system (regardless of which party is in power) AT&T is developing a wireless services to monitor every detail of health care – such things as video links to replace doctor visits, pill-bottle caps that detect when they are opened, and slippers that monitor patient activity. Here is another new industry that will profit from government control and personal micro-management. [Ever wonder why large corporations favor collectivism?] GTB 2010 Nov 5 (Cached)

AIG received $100 billion bailout 2 years ago and is 80% government owned. Despite a $2.4 billion loss for the 3rd quarter, now it plans to pay back the bailout with an accounting trick similar to that used with banks and auto companies: They will pay with stock which the government will offer for sale to the public. [We predict that, eventially, it will be discovered that the Fed and the Treasury will have quietly injected funds into the financial industry to enable favored players to buy the stock at unrealistically high prices – so the government can claim the bailout program worked after all. In essence, the government will create the money to pay itself back. Note the spin in the article’s headline: “AIG cleans house.” Cleaning house is good, right? But, in this case it’s more like selling off the furniture, carpets, appliances, plumbing, light fixtures, wiring, and roof shingles to make one more payment to the mortgage holder.] Yahoo 2010 Nov 5 (Cached)
US: Republicans are not even in office but already are reneging on their promise to repeal ObamaCare. Now they are talking about reforming it and only taking out its bad features. [If they actually did try to repeal it in its entirety, there would be a filibuster in the Senate to block it, and Obama still has veto power. So the issue will carry forward to the next election.]

US: Republicans ride voter unrest and take over the House. They promise to roll back the size of government, [How fast people forget! Republicans always make that promise, but it never happens. Both parties are controlled by collectivists who thrive on big government.] Yahoo 2010 Nov 3 (Cached)
If you think the concept of chemtrails is ridiculous and that no one would be interested in dumping chemicals into the atmosphere, take a look at this. Here is a list of 151 patents issued by the U.S. Patent Office for stratospheric aerial spraying programs.

US: Fed announces ‘Quantitative Easing’ and will buy $600 billion of government debt to keep interest low. Great news for banks, sad news for citizens who must pay for this through more taxes and inflation. ClusterStock 2010 Nov 3 (Cached)
Ireland: Students surround the Ministry of Finance in a massive protest against economic policies. [This is widely viewed as a sign that the Irish are rejecting the collectivist policies of their governments, but that is not the case. Watch closely and you will see that these young demonstrators are organized by a Leftist organization. Read their signs, such as: “Fight for free education – Make the rich pay.” This is merely street theater to perpetuate the Left/Right Paradigm. True reform cannot come from that.]

European Commission has funded development of a traffic camera that can detect 5 different driver offenses, including not wearing a seatbelt and tailgating. It is being field tested in Finland. [Motoring organizations say they approve of the device so long as it is not used primarily to raise money. What’s wrong with these people? Of course it will be used primarily to raise money. Duuh!] Guardian 2010 Nov 2 (Cached)
US: Major TV networks ban a TV commercial about the US national debt because it is too controversial. In it, a Chinese professor tells students that America has turned its back on the principles that made it great and borrowed too much money. He says: “We own most of the debt, so now they work for us.” [Is that controversy or is it truth? Either way, why don’t TV networks want Americans to see this?] American Dream 2010 Nov 2 (Cached)
California Governor Schwarzenegger bans welfare cards at medical marijuana shops, Bingo parlors, and psychics. [Anyone who uses welfare payments for such things is not very needy.

General Motors will try to sell $10 billion of new stock so it can shed government control by buying back some of the stock it previously gave the government in return for bailout. [We shall see if the public is willing to buy and we will be looking closely for evidence that the government itself will create the money to make that possible. It would not be the first time they created new debt to pay off old debt and thenj claim progress.] Yahoo 2010 Nov 1 (Cached)

US: President of Allied Pilots Association says pilots should not go through whole-body scanners because of danger from frequent exposure to radiation. He says also that the pat-down procedure is demeaning to pilots so they should have a private location for that. [It is not demeaning to anyone else? This whole thing is disgusting because the alleged threat is fabricated to keep the public in a state of fear so they will meekly accept continued loss of liberty supposedly to protect them from terrorism.] Dallas News 2010 Nov 1 (Cached)

UN asks nations now engaged in geo-engineering to honor a moratorium until such time as the UN itself is recognized as the principle authority to direct it. [This declaration is further proof that geo-engineering already is underway even though government officials have denied it to the public. Do not be fooled into thinking that world leaders at last have recognized the insanity of geo-engineering. It means only that the UN wants to be the controlling center of it. Since it will bring political power and massive funding, the UN will enthusiastically embrace all aspects of it while issuing comforting words about the need for caution. The UN’s honesty or accuracy in this matter will be no better than with its fraudulent support of the global-warming myth, which is the underlying justification for geo-engineering.] ETC Group Posted 2010 Oct 30 (Cached)
Arizona’s controversial immigration bill was heavily influenced by a private company that runs prisons on contract with Immigration and Customs, the US Marshall’s Office, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons. This year, Arizona’s Governor set aside $98 million for private prison corporations. [Regardless of one’s opinion of the merits of Arizona’s immigration bill, it was largely inspired by the profit motive.] Immigration Impact Posted 2010 Oct 30 (Cached)
Wall Street Journal exposes trashing of “conservatives” in the mainstream media. [What is said is true, but the WSJ also is part of the mainstream media and represents the Republican voice in politics. In the past, it has trashed “liberals” and Democrats. Note in this article the attempt to implant the idea that the Tea Party movement and the Republican Party are synonymous. This is just more theatre to keep the masses pre-occupied with the Republican vs. Democrat ploy in which voters are never given a real choice on important issues.] WSJ Posted 2010 Oct 30 (Cached)
Reports and commentaries that look beyond the news to identify historical facts and trends that must be understood to place the news into perspective. This is our “think-tank” section that makes it possible to anticipate future events.
Dr. David Janda explains how health care will be rationed in 2013 and how the law requires that older people will be denied treatment. (The formula is: cost of care divided by number of years the patient will benefit.) Another requirement is that all treatments will be determined by a federal medical board. If a doctor fails to follow that treatment, he will be fined $100,000 for the first offense. For a second offense, he will be imprisoned. And there is more. You must see this.

While we have been debating the issue of legalizing Marijuana based on freedom vs. health and ethical arguments, there has been a much deeper issue totally ignored by mainstream media. [This article explains why elitists like George Soros and corporations like Monsanto are supporting the legalization movement. It is because hemp has strong commercial and medical characteristics they plan to genetically modify so they can patent the seeds. They plan to monopolize these new markets through government control of hemp production; but first it has to be made legal. Here is the amazing story. The problem lies, not with legalizing hemp, but with allowing corporations to genetically modify and patent it.]
