Obama Snubs Questions At Press Freedom Act Signing 180510top

President Obama’s plummeting approval ratings have coincided with his increasing disdain for talking to the media, a trend embarrassingly highlighted yesterday during Obama’s signing of the Press Freedom Act, after which he refused to answer any questions from the press.

The new law Obama signed mandates the State Department to include a breakdown of press freedoms in their annual human rights report detailing the situation country by country.

But Obama’s reaction to being asked questions by the U.S. media served only to highlight the decline in American standards of press freedom.

Can Obama Assassinate Americans?

2 Mar

by Nat Hentoff

On September 14 in Somalia, Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan, a long-sought link between al-Qaida and its East African allies, was in a vehicle bombed by a helicopter flying from an American ship off the Somali coast. As Karen DeYoung and Joby Warrick reported in a front-page Washington Post story — “Under Obama, more targeted killings than captures in counterterrorism efforts” (Feb. 13) — another U.S. helicopter “set down long enough for troops to scoop up enough of (Nabhan’s) remains for DNA verification.”

That news story offered a telling consequence: “the opportunity to interrogate one of the most wanted U.S. terrorism targets was gone forever.” And a senior military officer, careful not to give his name, lamented: “We wanted to take a prisoner. It was not a decision that we made.”

That decision came from Obama, our commander in chief, who, as I’ve previously reported, has authorized in his first year more such assassinations than Bush and Cheney in their last years. The result, as the Washington Post noted, “has been dozens of targeted killings and no reports of high-value detentions.”

Google Bans Alex Jones’ Merchant Account

17 Feb

Google now defines who is a “protected group,” falling in lockstep with hate speech nonsense that has only one goal:  forced consensus.

Google has sensationally banned all sales through its shopping merchant of a DVD critical of the Obama administration under the terms of its program policy which bars any material deemed to be “advocating against a protected group”. Apparently, Google considers the government to be a “protected group,” and immune from criticism.

Radio talk show host Alex Jones’ Google merchant account has been completely disabled after the search engine giant sent an email claiming the products listed promoted violence, and refused to link to them on the Infowars Yahoo shopping cart.

“I had our new employee Thomas try to get our products from our Yahoo Store get sent to Google shopping so people using Google shopping can view our products and purchase them. We went through the steps of signing up for a Google Merchant Account and then submitted our entire product list,” writes Infowars staff member Tim Fruge.

“We were denied. I said OK, we’ll try it again with just a few products. Thinking maybe certain items were possibly flagging it. So we tried it with just a few of Alex’s DVD’s only….nope, still denied. So, I said let’s just try listing Fall Of The Republic. Still denied! We had to contact Google to find out what was going on and that’s when we got the response attached to this email. Just a blanket response, basically calling us a hate group or something to that effect.”

When Fruge questioned Google as to why the account had been disabled, he received the following response.

Hello,

Thank you for your email. Your data feed contains listings for items that don’t comply with our Program Policies.

Anti and Violence: products and associated websites may not promote violence or advocate against a protected group. This standard applies to everyone who wants to post on Google, whether we agree with their viewpoint or not. A protected group is distinguished by their race or ethnic origin, color, national origin, religion, disability, sex, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity.

Visit http://www.google.com/support/merchants/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=160074 to ensure all your items comply with our Program Policies.

Sincerely,
The Google Team

“So basically Google is censoring Fall Of The Republic on Google Shopping for the above stated reason. While The Turner Diaries, and many, many more books that are blatantly racist are allowed,” writes Fruge.

We were eventually able to get our products listed on Google but only through a third party that links to the Google base network.

The fact that Google openly admits to censoring material that is “anti” anything is a startling insight into their disdain for free speech. People who consider themselves “anti-homosexuality” or “anti-Christianity” and make films or write books about it would consider their point of view to constitute freedom of speech, but not according to Google, who selectively choose which groups are allowed to be criticized and which are not.

Obama’s New Rule: An Authoritarian Doctrine

14 Feb

The Obama administration has announced it will now rule by fascist decree and ignore Congress and the American people.

“With much of his legislative agenda stalled in Congress, President Obama and his team are preparing an array of actions using his executive power to advance energy, environmental, fiscal and other domestic policy priorities,” reports The New York Times. “We are reviewing a list of presidential executive orders and directives to get the job done across a front of issues,” said Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff who is fond of cracking his knuckles in Obama’s face.

Radio talk show host Michael Savage comments on Obama’s plan to rule by executive order.

According to The New York Times, ruling in authoritarian fashion is normal and acceptable. “Any president has vast authority to influence policy even without legislation, through executive orders, agency rule-making and administrative fiat.”

In fact, Obama’s plan to rule by authoritarian decree is unconstitutional. Article I, Section 1 of the Constitution states: “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.” Article II, Section 3 states that the president may call Congress into emergency session during a national crisis.

In other words, rule buy fiat is treason. Another section of the Constitution covers treason. Article II, Section. 4 states: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

Obama Pledges Another $215 Million For Virtual Strip Search Scanners 020210top

The Obama administration has announced that a further $215 million dollars will be spent on installing virtual strip search naked body scanners, meaning the devices will be in no less than half the nation’s airports by next year, but the historical record clearly shows that the scanners are a completely illegal violation of human rights.

“The $215 million proposal to acquire 500 scanners next year, combined with the 450 to be bought this year, marks the largest addition of airport-security equipment since immediately after the 9/11 attacks. There are only 40 body scanners in a total of 19 airports now,” reports USA Today.

Privacy advocate Marc Rotenberg pointed out that the scanners were yet another expensive instrument of the war on terror being used against the American people.

Nine Months Later, Obama Plan To Help 1.5 Million Struggling Homeowners Yet To Launch

10 Jan

Priorities, priorities. The Pentagon budget comes first. I guess the rationale is that if we don’t get those terrorists, then you won’t be safe while living on the street.

The Huffington Post

An Obama administration plan announced in April to help up to half of all struggling homeowners modify their second mortgages has yet to officially launch, the Treasury Department acknowledged Friday.

The program, a component of the administration’s $75 billion Making Home Affordable effort, was supposed to attack second-lien mortgages, which are additional, second mortgages taken out on a home on top of the initial first mortgage. It’s like taking out two loans to pay the same debt.

The Second Lien Program is supposed to automatically reduce the payments on a second mortgage when the first mortgage is modified under the administration’s loan modification effort, the Home Affordable Modification Program. The administration says that by lowering monthly mortgage payments, HAMP will eventually help up to four million homeowners stay in their homes

Some housing experts say the second-mortgage component of the plan is necessary to effectively tackle the foreclosure mess — 3 million foreclosure notices were sent out in 2009; another 3 million are estimated to go out this year — because so many distressed homeowners have second mortgages. When rolling out the program in April, the administration estimated that “up to 50 percent of at-risk mortgages currently have second liens.” Addressing only the first lien is insufficient, experts say, if no changes are made to seconds.

Is the American Dream Nothing More Than Servitude?

26 Dec

ARTICLE SOURCE

We were all taught the myth of the American Dream. Indeed, this “dream” is now being sold all over the world, that if you study hard, get a good job and work hard you’ll be able to own things and eventually find economic freedom in your retirement years. This story has been reinforced at nearly every dinner table in America. Once we buy into this fantasy we become shackled into servitude and our very existence becomes defined by it. We can’t logically envision another way to spend our time.

We then pursue this dream with vigor. Our youth is devoured preparing for the workforce; we take student loans that ensure our commitment to the system, we finance a car if we are lucky enough to find a job, we sign contracts for mortgages, utility companies, and even our churches to submit our pound of “human” flesh. We all do this willingly because we believe this to be the best way to spend our time on this planet. And for some it’s their only known way to survive.

The most absurd aspect to committing 90% of our waking life working for this dream is that it’s all just to function, to stay alive and have experiences. The illusion of wealth and private property provides enough allure to get most of us to submit. Sure, nice things are terrific and great to use, but that’s exactly what we’re doing – using them. Let’s be clear, we never really own property without future obligation of taxes, insurance, or permit/licensing fees.

Since nearly everything is bought and sold on credit by governments, industry, and households, the Money Printers control it all. Yup, life is grand owning or controlling 90% of the world’s resources with just a measly 10% left to the peasants. Conveniently, they are the only ones flush with cash (loaned by us, and repaid by us), just waiting for prices of “real” things to get low enough to sweep up the rest of the crumbs.

The recent economic collapse has exposed many previously “distracted” citizens to the marriage of state and banks for the benefit of them – not us. Matt Taibbi, of Rolling Stone, has been brilliantly detailing the merger between state and big banks since the manipulated financial collapse. In short, the money printers are the puppet masters of all “resources,” whose slight flick of a finger effects the entire economy, and consequently, the government and the slave puppets at the bottom of the string.

Predatory lending has been used to successfully enslave Third World countries with debt as described in great detail by John Perkins in his books Confessions of an Economic Hitman and Secret History of the American Empire. The banks discovered that they can colonize and imprison the world through the leverage of debt (although some countries are now resisting debt servitude). Once proven successful, the banks then turned to enslaving all industries and workers luring them behind bars through deceptive lending techniques.

In most circles it’s safe to say that our government is no longer “By The People” or “For The People” anymore. In fact, I wouldn’t even describe them as for the corporations as many gripers like to do. Instead, I contend that they merged a long time ago. ALL of our government agencies are wholly employed and run by former titans of industries that they now “regulate”. Politics is just big business; the 2008 Presidential race was nearly a $2 billion dollar industry alone, and forget about the Congressional campaigns. Our system, whatever you want to call it, IS big business, BY big business, and FOR big business.

It is rape and pillage for profits and power, where corporations are given the rights of individuals, but none of the punishment for moral wrong-doing. Understandably their policemen have long been on-the-take. Plain and simple, it seems like our cartel capitalism, fully-integrated with our government, is infinitely more oppressive than what our Founding Fathers faced with a greedy King on the other side of the pond. And yet, we continue to not only support, but fund it.

How do we break the chains of servitude? Well, we start with either getting out of debt, or by rejecting current debt. I’m not suggesting that readers should just walk away or declare bankruptcy if they have the means to combat it. However if the illusory debt noose has tightened to the point of suffocation, your only choice is to remove it by any means necessary and declare your personal human freedom.

In this rigged game designed to sacrifice the Pawns. However, I can’t help but feeling like the Knight of my own life with desires to be the King of it. And that’s the good news. We all have the ability to be Kings or Queens of our individual paths. And since the current system thoroughly depends on our acquiescence, we can change it to treat resources, all creatures, and our environment with the respect they deserve.

Tyranny 2010

24 Dec

I think most people have continued their denial as long as humanly possible — myself included.  With executive order 12425, signed on December 17, 2009, Barack Obama has declared that America is now officially a tyranny.  It certainly wasn’t going to be announced as such on the evening news, but the granting of immunity to INTERPOL agents, thus superseding the U.S. Constitution, is the utmost violation of what Americans have cherished since the first days of the American Revolution and the country’s inception. Obama has now declared that paramilitary security forces representing any country on earth are free to roam American soil with absolute authority, no oversight, and no recourse for anyone who is violated.  I can’t think of a more treasonous declaration than this one.   All that the U.S. stood for, in terms of individual freedom, human rights, and privacy, has been obliterated.  This type of executive order is dictatorial — decided by Obama and the stroke of his pen — affecting every American man, woman, and child in the United States.

Goodbye America; it was a nice experiment while it lasted.  Only a Second American Revolution can close the gates of tyranny that the Commander in Chief has decided to open.

Banks and Vaccines: Nice Work If You Can Get It

26 Oct

Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, major media destroy information and religions destroy spirituality — Michael Ellner

And now we can add “banks destroy wealth.”

So, what do banks and vaccine producers have in common?  Answer:  We the taxpayers actually pay them for the damage they cause us.  In the case of vaccines, the Mafia wishes they had thought of it sooner; and in the case of the banks, the Mafia did have similar lending policies (loansharking), but nothing near as audacious and criminal — the Mafia rarely charged more than 20% interest.

Your Money

It is a brilliant system:  create money out of thin air; lend it to people with interest attached; get them to buy real items; then raise the rates, let people default and rake in the forfeited assets.  Best of all, when the whole Ponzi scheme comes crashing down, you can get the very people you destroyed to bail you out with tax money.  Like I said, nice work if you can get it.  And they throw it in our face.  They even have had the audacity to suggest that we are at fault!  This, after we are nurtured from the teat to be good consumers — especially in times of war and looming recession.  Not sure about you, but I remember even being offered a vacation with my second mortgage.  Wow!  A trip to France, too!  Sure, why not.  Just like the 10 credit card solicitations per week (when I was still in college).  Now they have us where they want us . . . they think.  Recently it was announced that if you pay your bills on time, or don’t use your card they will hit you with a fee.  They are now openly looting the already looted.  It is important to realize just how vicious and criminal this is — makes it easier to walk away from the debt you already paid for three times over.  And that is happening en masse. It is part of the second American Revolution to simply not cooperate with criminals who actually announce that they are criminals.  Meanwhile, we have the private, for profit, Federal Reserve taking American taxpayer money and propping up foreign central banks, while they behave like the Mafia through illegal intimidation tactics.  The entire system is corrupt and anyone with a soul should withdraw their support in any way possible.  Non-violent, carefully considered, non-cooperation.

Your Body

Public health officials have now partnered with vaccine makers in a joint effort to convince the public that vaccines like those for H1N1 are safe, and anyone who disagrees is a conspiracy theorist.  A recent ABC News story focused on the massive amount of money being made at all levels of vaccine production and distribution, but then they tried to throw a veil over the real problem when they mention that many of the claims made against the safety of vaccines have not been proven — even invoking the link to “the comedian Jim Carrey” in an ad hominem attempt to say, “I mean, come on, these people think vaccines are deadly.”  When, in fact, more doctors and registered nurses each day are putting out the word to state unequivocally that the H1N1 vaccine, in particular, is a recipe for disaster.  And years of ongoing research indicate that vaccines in general are the worst thing you can put into the body of you and your children.  Despite the recently declared National Emergency, it seems that even President Obama knows vaccines are dangerous.  Of course he doesn’t say it straight away, but for those who have taken the course Lie Detection 101, the shifting, fidgeting, and general verbal stumbling from this professional public speaker should be air-tight evidence.
