US to extend the badly misnamed Patriot Act for four more years. [So much for all those Republican ‘Constitutionalists’ who promised to defend the Bill of Rights.] PressTV 2011 May 20 (Cached)

US: The War Powers Act of 1973 requires the President to get approval from Congress for military operations within 60 days or withdraw the forces. Congress did not authorize the military operation in Libya within 60 days, and the Obama administration has indicated that the action will continue indefinitely. Both parties in Congress have remained silent. The Hill May 20 (Cached)

Obama calls for Israel to withdraw its borders to its pre-1967 boundaries and advocates self-government for Palestine.. Israel rejects the peace plan claiming it would be endangered by such action.

Inflation has doubled and tripled the prices of many commodities in the last year. Gold has increased in value during this time, not only because of inflation, but because of the psychological factor as more people seek it as a hedge against loss in value of currency and paper investments. For these reasons, gold (and silver) could go into hyper-drive as demand increases. USA Gold posted 2011 May 20 (Cached)

US: “Sneak-and-Peek’ searches are on the rise. They are court-authorized searches of homes and offices while occupants are absent so they don’t even know they occurred. KOAT 2011 May 18 (Cached)

Up to 2/3 of China’s watermelon crops are ‘exploding’ due to

spraying them with a chemical growth promoter. This chemical, forchlorfenuron, is, of course, toxic, but it increases melon size and profits. [It also is used on other foods, such as grapes, even in the U.S.] NaturalNews 2011 May 18 (Cached)

Inexpensive compound (DCA) used safely for years to treat metabolic problems shows promise as a cure for cancer, but it is ignored by Big Pharma. [The real story here is not about its effectiveness but that it likely will never be marketed. Why not? Because it cannot be patented and no one will spend $500 million for FDA approval because, without a patent, it cannot be monopolized. Therefore, the cost of testing cannot be recaptured. Cures from nature will never be legally available within the present system.] Fox News May 18 (Cached)
Here is a link to a website that gives case studies of patients who used DCA, dosage levels, and information on side effects. These patients typically had prior conventional treatment and were in advanced stages before starting therapy. In view of that handicap, the results seem promising. posted 2011 May 19 (Cached)

LA County Deputy District Attorney proposes to ease jail overcrowding and reform non-violent offenders by offering them a chance to avoid a felony record if they work at a real job for a year and cease illegal activity. Felony records for first-time, non-violent offenders makes them unemployable for life and forces them deeper into crime. FullDisclosureNetwork posted 2011 May 18

Simple radiation detoxification includes using Zeolite clay, French green clay, bentonite clay, baking soda, boron, and certain foods. Reverse osmosis and zeolite filters can be effective in removing radiation particles from water.

Afghanistan: JP Morgan and the Pentagon have teamed up to exploit $1 trillion in mineral deposits that include gold, iron, and copper mines. International corporations are dividing up natural resources in many countries – to protect the world from terrorism, of course.

US: University professors reveal that radiation tests for x-ray machines at airports were faked by the manufacturer to deceive the public about the safety of such devices. NaturalNews 2011 May 17 (Cached)

US: The 4th Amendment to the Constitution (protection against unreasonable search & seizure) is dead, as the US Supreme Court and the Supreme Court of Indiana have ruled that police may enter homes without a warrant, and citizens are criminals if they resist – even if the police are acting illegally! [The video relates only to the Indiana case, but the article covers both cases.] InfoWars 2011 May 16 (Cached)

US: The FBI now is using a ‘vacuum cleaner’ approach to surveillance. Instead of singling out ‘suspicious’ individuals, it is recording and analyzing the data from everyone that uses the Internet – to protect us from terrorism, of course.

Arizona: Thirteen out of seventeen residents in Mohave County have tested positive for VERY high levels of aluminum and barium in their blood. They believe this has come from chemtrails in the area, a black-box operation of spraying chemicals in the air supposedly to reduce global warming.

Chart shows IMF top 20 ‘donors’. The U.S. is number 1 and pays almost 3 times as much as number 2. That means American taxpayers have been financing most of foreign nations’ bank bailouts, welfare, and wars. [The IMF now is pushing to abandon the dollar and create its own world-reserve currency, but the American taxpayers still will be called upon to pay the lion’s share of all costs – until it finally becomes financially destroyed and reduced to a humbled and obedient part of the New World Order.]

Fukushima reactors 1, 2 & 3 have damaged cores and are likely in meltdown. High radiation levels are preventing workers from starting repairs on the power plants. WSJ 2011 May 16 (Cached)

‘Kill Switches’ are to become embedded in devices that control energy use. This will allow utility companies and government agencies to limit or terminate anyone’s electrical power or gas use. Control signals will be sent through power lines and broadcast to devices from fluorescent bulbs (which may be why we are being forced to use them instead of incandescents).

Oregon gas station sells gas for 20 cents a gallon, if paid with pre-1964 silver coins. This illustrates how the fiat dollar has deflated and precious metals have retained their value in commerce.

US: Congress is considering legislation to give the President totalitarian power to engage in full-scale war, without congressional approval, for an indefinite period of time, and even launch attacks against American citizens inside the US. [We expect enough opposition to this bill to cause some features to be removed or watered down, but they readily can be added later after a suitable terrorist attack.] AlexanderHiggins 2011 May 15 (Cached)

Amazing revelation that the credit crash of 2008 was triggered by the Mexican drug cartels. [Prior to this, Wachovia had laundered $378 billion in drug money but, when it finally came under investigation, began to reduce the amounts it would accept in drug deposits. In retaliation, the drug cartel withdrew all its money. Suddenly, Wachovia, and other large banks as well, found they had insufficient cash to operate. The financial crisis began precisely at that point.]

Scientist says that herbicide widely sold by Monsanto, causes causes plants to become susceptible to pathogens that they normally would reject. The pathogens prevent them from absorbing vital nutrients. The result is that animals that eat these plants have low fertility rates and high birth defects. BNET Posted 2011 May 14 (Cached)

US: “Immigrants for sale” shows how private prisons are thriving on illegal-immigration. Instead of sending illegal aliens home, they are kept in prison and have become the source of $5 billion per year paid from tax revenue to the privately run prisons. [Be aware that, although the facts are basically correct, the leftist bias of the producers of this program is pro-illegal immigration and pro-collectivist, views which we do not share.]

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.

US: Man gets food stamps even after winning the lottery. [Is that proper? The state says his winnings are an asset, and that makes it OK. Otherwise those with equity in their homes (assets) would also be cut off even though they have minimal income. Should they be denied welfare just because they own their homes? The bigger question is: should ANYONE get food stamps from the government (taxpayers)? Is the proper function of the state to re-distribute wealth? Think about it. As usual, the real issues are behind the headlines.]

Nevada planning committee member says federal Bureau of Land Management has become an arm of “The Crown” which is an investment consortium of the world’s largest banks controlled from “The City” which is the financial center in London. He says they have acquired vast water and gold rights in his state, and most people are totally unaware. [Includes short video explaining the “Crown.”]

State nullification of unconstitutional federal laws under the 10th Amendment is explained. It already has been successful in a number of states. The federal government cannot be expected to limit itself, so an exterior force is needed, and the states are it. Very important concept.
