Bennigan’s joins Linen 'n Things, Sharper Image and Ann Taylor on the Dead and Dying List


From the New York Times: "Several national restaurant chains were shuttered on Tuesday, possibly offering an early taste of what’s in store this year for businesses that depend on free-spending consumers whose budgets are now being squeezed...Other mall mainstays, like Linens ’n Things and Sharper Image, have also fallen victim to the economic pain, and retailers like Ann Taylor have said they will close hundreds of local stores." Bennigan’s has now joined Linen 'n Things, Sharper Image and Ann Taylor on the dead and dying list. Let us not live in denial until a loaf bread is $10 or much more, or not around at all.

9/11 Truth Jesse Ventura on Howard Stern fears We Did 9/11 To Ourselves


Jesse Ventura states on Howard Stern's radio show that he does not believe Bush administration’s official story about September 11, 2001. The 9/11 Commission Report does not make sense. He fears that we did it to ourselves. Mr. Ventura's has a new book out called Don’t Start the Revolution Without Me!

The Reality of Big Brother - Must Watch! - 6 July 2008 presentation by David Icke


The video below gets about the highest recommendation I could possibly give. In this presentation David Icke gives his answers to, "Who is Big Brother?" and "What is Big Brother up to?"--very fitting questions given the state of states in this world. A man who has written many books, he can of course in no way communicate the whole of his research or worldview in a single presentation, but it seems like he's giving it a shot in this one. In this video you'll find a broad-ranging talk that places his thinking, very appropriately, into the context of current British, American, and ultimately, world governance.

Among numerous other well-presented topics, his explanation of the ABSURDITY OF THE TWO PARTY SYSTEM is particularly superb. As I can well sympathize, one meets oneself going Right while heading towards the Left. The battle of the Democrats and the Republicans is a farce, a "movie" as Icke would call it, that merely distracts us from that which is significant. Stop talking about McCain! Stop talking about Obama! The two parties are "masks on the same face" (see picture above, a slide from Icke's presentation). As Icke suggests, perhaps what we need is change in consciousness, an increase in our understanding of what is possible...and a steadfast noncooperation with our own enslavement. "The power they have is the power we give them to enslave us." Watching beginning to end is highly recommended, then please! pass it along.

David Icke's "Big Brother, the Big Picture," 174 minutes (6 July 2008):


"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr., quoted in David Icke's Big Brother talk.

"The Military-Industrial Complex: It’s Much Later Than You Think" by Chalmers Johnson (28 July 2008)


Beginning paragraph of Chalmers Johnson's essay on Common Dreams, "The Military-Industrial Complex: It’s Much Later Than You Think," Monday, 28 July 2008

"Most Americans have a rough idea what the term 'military-industrial complex' means when they come across it in a newspaper or hear a politician mention it. President Dwight D. Eisenhower introduced the idea to the public in his farewell address of January 17, 1961. 'Our military organization today bears little relation to that known by any of my predecessors in peacetime,' he said, 'or indeed by the fighting men of World War II and Korea… We have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions… We must not fail to comprehend its grave implications… We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex.'"

Flashback: ABC News 1979 Special on CIA "mind control" experiments (LSD trials on human subjects, witting and unwitting)


Flashback to 1979...a propaganda piece in its own right, but far more revealing than one could expect from ABC today. In this news special they cover some aspects of the human experimentation performed by the CIA and other US intelligence agencies, experiments they performed on both witting an unwitting subjects for decades. Often called "mind control" experiments, they usually involve LSD and/or other psychotropic drugs being administered to CIA agents themselves, or moreoften whatever subjects they can get their hands on from prostitutes to prison inmates.

"How Should We Respond To The Imploding Economy? Are We Facing Just Another Market Problem or A System Collapse?" by Danny Schechter (27 July 2008)


Beginning clip from Danny Schechter's essay on Common Dreams, "How Should We Respond To The Imploding Economy? Are We Facing Just Another Market Problem or A System Collapse?," Sunday, 27 July 2008

"The question we face in late July, as regulators seize two more banks, is: will we be engulfed by a further collapse in our economy or can the damage be contained, or, even turned around? We know what goes up must come down but when will what’s down go back up? It isn’t looking good—and, even now, the two presumptive major party presidential candidates are talking about everything but this deepening crisis. They are debating terrorists and Afghanistan and how to meander out of Iraq but not the reality that so many Americans are living with: a squeeze that is leaving so many of us broke, in deeper and deeper debt and disgusted."

CNN Progpaganda! Laughing at the warmongering and lies of Bush...


Disgusting example of what happens every day on CNN. Little more needs to be said, but please, please someone explain to me how these women can laugh at the few people in our government who are standing up against treason and unbounded aggression?

"Comedy" short - George Bush's most honest press conference ever (obviously a creative work, because we know Bush does not know how to tell the truth)


Compilations of Bush moments are a dime a dozen, but once in awhile, one will strike at my heart like this one. If only this man George Bush would wake up one day and be honest. Framed with comedy by the ever-exceptional Bill Hicks.

Attorney Vincent Bugliosi: Bush Administration is guilty of murder under the law. There is more than enough evidence to convict them.


Today attorney Vincent Bugliosi made a series of statements at the United States House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary's hearing on "Executive Power and Its Constitutional Limitations," (a.k.a the meeting that isn't supposed to be called an "impeachment" hearing). Informed that he was forbidden by the rules of the house from accusing President Bush of a crime or even dishonorable conduct, Bugliosi still clearly makes the case that Bush (or, as he was forced to say, members of “the Bush administration”) is guilty of murder. Click on the image of Bugliosi at right to read excerpts of the book provided by its publisher, Perseus Books.

A transcription of part of the (first) video clip found below: "In my book here The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder I present evidence that proves beyond all reasonable doubt that Bush administration officials took this nation to war in Iraq on a lie, under false pretenses, and therefore under the law they are guilty of murder for the deaths of over 4,000 young American soldiers who have died so far in Iraq fighting their war. And let's not forget the over 100,000 innocent Iraqi men, women, children and babies who have died horrible, violent deaths because of this war. I am fully aware that the charge I have just made is a very serious one, but let me say that in this stage in my career I don't have time for fanciful reveries. I never in a million years would propose a murder prosecution of Bush administration officials if I didn't believe that there was more than enough evidence to convict them, and that I was standing on strong legal ground."

Vincent Bugliosi on the case for prosecuting George W. Bush for Murder (morning of 25 July 2008):


In this second video clip (below), Bugliosi uses two pieces of physical evidence that incontrovertibly demonstrate that these lies were intentionally manufactured and distributed for the purpose of deceiving the Congress and the American people into going to war (that last bit is my expression of the case, not his). With the formerly classified National Intelligence Estimate dated 1 October 2002 in one hand, and the white paper given to Congress and shown to the American people in the other, it is easy to see that they simply DELETED information. They just took it out! They deleted the dissenting opinions, just deleted the "if"s, "and"s and "but"s; the intelligence they got did not support their claims, and they simply changed it so that it did.

We’ve been lied too. Thank you Vincent Bugliosi for standing up for the truth!


Vincent Bugliosi on Bush Administration Lies about Weapons of Mass Destruction (morning of 25 July 2008, a little later):


Bugliosi - "Whether Republican or Democrat, all Americans should be absolutely outraged over what the Bush administration has done. How dare they do what they did. How dare they!” [applause from the chamber]

PRESIDENT BUSH SHOULD BE IMPEACHED FOR HIGH CRIMES, and tried under the law for murder and more. If you are in agreement tell everyone you know, and those you don’t know, too. Now is not the time for fear as we are being told. It is the time for bravery. Let us all take Mr. Bugliosi as an example and be brave. We have nothing to live for but the present—the future depends on what each of us does now.

Question of the day: Why, if I run a search for impeachment right now on Google, do I seem to come across as much information on Clinton's impeachment, and general information on what the word "impeachment" means, as I do on Bush's impeachment, which is going on right now?

Bernanke admits Federal Reserve caused the Great Depression, is somehow under the illusion that they won't do the same again... (2002)


Transcript of remarks by Ben S. Bernanke at a conference to honor Milton Friedman on the occasion of Friedman's ninetieth birthday, (8 November 2002):

www.federalreserve.gov/boarddocs/speeches/2002/20021108/default.htm

At the time of these remarks Bernanke was a "mere member" of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. He began his 4-year term as Chairman in early 2006. Below I've copied the end of the speech, though I do recommend checking out the whole thing. His is an admission I've never seen made so candidly by a representative of the Fed. His illusion, his delusion in saying this is that he thinks the Fed won't cause the same havoc again. And yet that is exactly what the Fed was doing in 2002 (what it seems to have always been doing since its inception in 1913), and it is what they are still doing today...

"Let me end my talk by slightly abusing my status as an official representative of the Federal Reserve. I would like to say to Milton and Anna: Regarding the Great Depression. You’re right, we did it. We’re very sorry. But thanks to you, we won’t do it again." - Ben S. Bernanke [emphasis added!]

BUSH TORTURE POLICY: John Yoo and David Addington @ Congress


The insanity continues (i.e. debating "Is torture OK?") during the 26 June 08 meeting of the House Judiciary Committee. David Addington is a "longtime aide" to Dick Cheney, and John Yoo is equally suspect as author of some of the most horrendous memorandums the world has ever read.

Law Prof. Jonathan Turley, "I mean, the Congress just gave the President despotic powers…and you could hear the yawn across the country..."


The following quote is from Jonathan Turley, Constitutional Law professor at George Washington University. Click on his picture to the right to visit his website. He is speaking on the Military Commissions Act of 2006.

“The framers created a system where we did not have to rely on the good graces or good mood of the President. In fact, Madison said that he created a system essentially to be run by devils, where they could not do harm. Because we didn’t rely on their good motivations. Now we must. And people have no idea how significant this is. What…what really a kind of shame this is for the American system. What the Congress did and what the President signed today, essentially revokes over 200 years of American principles and values. It couldn’t be more significant. And the strange thing is we’ve become sort of constitutional couch potatoes. I mean, the Congress just gave the President despotic powers…and you could hear the yawn across the country as people turned to, you know, Dancing with the Stars. I mean, it’s…it’s otherworldly.”

RE: The source of this quote--I can't recall right now what film I heard him say this in, but I do remember transcribing it carefully, so it is accurate. When I find the source I'll post it.

ESSAY: When America Went Fascist by Chris Rowthorn (25 Sept. 2007)


Excerpt from the beginning of this essay by Chris Rowthorn (click here to read the whole thing):

"'Fascism: a system of government marked by centralization of authority under
a dictator' -- The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language: Fourth Edition (2000). It is a truism in the blogosphere that one more terrorist attack will turn America into a fascist state. People speculate about what fascism in America will look like, or how they might fight it. Others boast that they plan to flee the country ahead of the coming fascist takeover of the United States. One cannot read these posts without a sense of bitter irony, because one thing is clear to those who are watching carefully: The United States of America is already a fascist state. The United States turned fascist on December 11, 2000. On that day, the Supreme Court essentially appointed George W. Bush president of the United States, stopping the recount of Florida votes, and, hence, the democratic process. The justices of the court then slipped away by night, ashamed of their role in murdering America's great experiment in democratic rule..."

Thank you Senator Feingold! “History will not judge this senate kindly” for the warrantless surveillance of Americans and humans throughout the world.


Thank you Senator Russ Feingold! In this floor speech by Senator Feingold on 9 July 2008 he makes a last appeal to his fellow Senators urging them to reason and constitutionality, urging them to vote against the new (enacted 10 July 2008) FISA Amendments Act of 2008 (a.k.a. the new FISA bill or FAA) that allows for the warrantless surveillance of humans throughout the world, including American citizens. To quote, "If we grant these new powers to the government, and the effects become known to the American people, we will realize what a mistake it was." Senator Feingold, Democrat of Wisconsin, is a member of the Senate Judiciary and Intelligence Committees. He is also the only member of the Senate who voted against the USA Patriot Act. (Thank you for this, too, Senator Feingold.) By the way, the black and white image just above is the American Civil Liberties Union's great "spy flag" illustration. Click on it to view the ACLU’s detailed information page on the new FISA bill, though I do recommend first watching Senator Feingold's speech on YouTube embedded below.

Senator Feingold's floor speech condemning the new FISA bill:


A short quote from this floor speech:
“This body should certainly not grant the government new overexpansive surveillance authorities…Let me explain why I’m so concerned about the new surveillance powers granted in this bill…the FISA Amendments Act would authorize the government to collect all, all communications between the United States and the rest of the world. That could mean millions upon millions of communications between innocent Americans and their friends families or business associates overseas can now be legally collected. Parents calling their kids studying abroad, emails to friends serving in Iraq, all of these communications could be collected with absolutely no suspicion of any wrongdoing at all under this legislation...Members of this body will regret that we passed this legislation. I am also familiar with the collection activity that have that have been conducted on 'The Protect America Act' that will continue under this bill… If we grant these new powers to the government, and the effects become known to the American people, we will realize what a mistake it was. Of that I am sure. Mr. President, I hope my colleagues will think long and hard about their votes on this bill, and consider how they and their constituents will feel about this vote 5, 10, or 20 years from now. I am confident that history will not judge this Senate kindly…"

Two statements about the new FISA bill on Senator Feingold’s website:
1. The New FISA Bill: A Bad Deal June 23, 2008
2. Statement of U.S. Senator Russ Feingold On the FISA Deal June 19, 2008

And lastly, a flash from the past, Senator Feingold fighting the USA Patriot Act:
Statement Of U.S. Senator Russ Feingold On The Anti-Terrorism Bill From The Senate Floor October 25, 2001

The FISA Amendments Act of 2008, H.R. 6304, is also called The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 Amendments Act of 2008.

Considering Bob Barr, Libertarian for President of the united states of America


Bob Barr discusses his campaign for the Presidency on CSPAN’s Road to the White House (14 July 2008):


The downs of Bob Barr (from what I know so far, just getting to know of him):
1. He’s not Ron Paul.
2. He voted in favor the rights-stripping USA Patriot Act and other un-Freeing legislation, so his full awakening to the coup-like changes in our country must be recent, but from what I can tell so far, he seems to be waking up now, and that’s heading in the right direction…

The ups of Bob Barr (from what I know so far, again, just getting to know of him):
1. The states that the core of his platform is individual liberty, individual responsibility, and small government.
2. He understands the economic necessity of keeping taxation low.
3. He is operating outside of the dogmatic, 2-party system which does not offer voters significant choices.
4. He says that his first action as President would be to let congress know that he will veto any budget presented to him that has a deficit.
5. His parting words on this CSPAN interview were clear and adamant. Bob Barr knows that the government is way too big and that it is taking our freedoms away, and he is not OK with it.

The question of Bob Barr:
I have no firm position on him at this point, because I don’t know as much as I would like to before coming to any kind of meaning determination. Since January my mind has been set on Ron Paul, so it has only been since his resignation from his presidential campaign (and subsequent launch of Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty) that I have given a second thought about who I might vote in favor of for President. Had I not become familiar with Ron Paul’s campaign, I likely would have voted in my local elections this November, but would have left the ovals next to the presidential nominees blank. But now that I’ve looked around a bit, Barr is certainly on my list of people full of possibility.

McBama's March to War, clever and pointed political short produced by ad produced by Bob Barr supporter:


Libertarian presidential nominee Bob Barr represented the 7th District of Georgia in the US House of Representatives from 1995 to 2003. His vice presidential running mate is Wayne Root. One last FYI: Ron Paul was the Libertarian candidate for President in 1988.

House Telecommunications Subcommittee hearing on the Digital TV Transition (11 June 2008)


Why is the government mandating technology standards? It is incomprehensible. I have not researched into this subject much… yet, but I was first suspicious when I realized that everyone and their brother were asking me if I had ordered my digital converter coupon yet. Why would so many people be concerned about whether or not I was going to be able to watch network television? And why, as I said above, would the Congress be directing private companies in what kinds of goods and services they provide in the first place? Watching this hearing gave me some ideas as to why my hesitations about this "congressional mandate" are likely well-founded. Two problems: 1) This appears a congressional mandate granting oligopoly, since just a few privileged companies appear to have been not only involved in the development of the congressional mandate, but are also (in a clear conflict of interest), the only companies which are also the suppliers of the technology, and 2) I’m hearing language like “V-chip standards” and “emergency communications”… these are cover stories that can only lead to more censorship and government control (or rather, cooperation with) mega-media interests.

House Telecommunications Subcommittee hearing on the Digital TV Transition (11 June 2008):


PS: Be sure also to notice how most of the speakers in this hearing use a language indistinguishable from what one would expect to hear in a corporate boardroom, whether they are corporate spokespersons or government spokespersons. "Customer service" is used to describe the relationship between the government and the rest of the people of this nation; "focus groups" are used to determine whether or not the American people are sufficiently "educated" about the program; and on and on and on.

Our Own Private Bin Laden - a Samira Goetschel film


Very interesting film by Samira Goetschel, a native of Iran who immigrated to the United Stated after the 1979 revolution in Iran. She is now a native of New York City, whose experience, she says, of the changes in this nation after 9/11/01 drove her to investigate into the larger picture of relations between the United States and the nations of the middle east. Interviews and pictorial evidence abound in her inquisitive research. (Sorry for the 6-part split, it's well worth the extra clicking.

Here is a description from YouTube user "historywillabsolve":
"Our Own Private Bin Laden highlights the historical background that led to the fatal link between post-Cold War politics and the emergence of new forms of terrorism that succeeded in establishing their own economy. It traces the connection between privatization, deregulation and free market and the globalization of terrorism. The film examines the complicity between economic structures of "terror" and "the war on terror," their interdependencies, and the creation of the Bin Laden industry as a consequence. The film explains why the world after September 11, 2001 is less the result of a stray act of terror but the consequence of a series of fatal decisions made from 1945 onwards."

That is, a legion of riot police equipped with batons, tasers, rubber bullets, and of course, real guns, patrolling Miami military-style in protecting the members and interests of the FTAA. If you think the lock down is not getting close, watch this and perhaps you'll reconsider that opinion. Martial law is being employed throughout the US, regularly. And it subsequently is also being covered up and even directly lied about in virtually all mainstream media. They manage the images, their reporters are forever "embedding" themselves with government, military and police entities...they ignore...and they LIE. In this film you'll see the un-embedded side of the story. It may be familiar to you if you've watched some of the coverage provided by the protesters during the WTO (World Trade Organization) ministerial meeting in Seattle in November of 1999.

Description from Google Video: "Martial Law was declared in downtown Miami in November of 2003 to provide security for the FTAA Economic Summit. Blatant and unashamed police brutality is caught on film. The US Federal government granted the State of Florida $8.5 million dollars from the $87 billion allotted to Congress to fight the "War on Terror," in order to provide "security" for the FTAA summit. Tazers and "non-lethal" weaponry was pilot tested at this event with little to no instruction on proper handling of the equipment or restrictions on use. This film serves as an example of how the war on terror is nothing more than a war on the American citizenry, and is meant as a war on dissent.

Oh! Sweet Humanity! You must listen to BEIRUT (the band).

I thought I would be contemplating the world political situation, per usual this evening, but I have been absolutely overtaken by this absolutely phenomenal music. No superlative can describe it. Rarely do I say things like "one must," but this, in my opinion, is a MUST!

The young man who has initiated this music, Zach Condon, and his fellow musicians, have created music that I would call both: A) true world fusion music, and B) absolutely individual. Other members of the band (according to Wikipedia) are: Perri Cloutier, Hari Ziznewski, Jason Poranski, Nick Petree, Kristin Ferebee, Paul Collins, Jon Natchez, Kelly Pratt, and Tracy Pratt. I would have never thought such music were possible until I listened to it. The lead singer has a voice comparable to both Thomas Yorke of Radiohead, and Jim Morrison of The Doors. And the instrumental influences are equally if not more amazing in their diversity and depth; Italian wedding songs, Spanish flamenco-style music, Mexican mariachi bands, Dmitri Shostakovich, something that sounds Slavic but I am ignorant to understanding it, are all a part of this music...and so much more. I cannot believe my ears. Listen!

The two albums of their with which I am familiar (since 6:45 pm this evening), are: The Flying Club Cup (2007), and Gulag Orkestar (2008). There may be others but I don't know of them. Again, I appeal to your ears...Listen!

You may visit Beirut's website here (and I cannot recommend more highly purchasing their music to hear the whole shebang):

Rick Siegel - 911 Eyewitness from Hoboken - Extraordinary - You may have never seen these pictures before.



I don't know that I can do much better than the description on Google Video: "This documentary shows the evidence for explosives in the WTC buildings that any rational person cannot deny. Explosives in the buildings are now established fact. The physical evidence is undeniable. The who, when, and why of the explosives will need to be determined by an official investigation, but the evidence of the explosives is now beyond question. Buy the DVD at http://911eyewitness.com/shop-categories.html"

Okay, maybe I'll add a bit (this passage inspired me): It is not possible, based on tangible, physically apprehend-able evidence, that the World Trade Center's twin towers fell because one airplane ran into each of them. It is physically impossible. Impossible! I know that may be hard to believe for many, it was difficult for me, as well, to shake myself loose from the propaganda enough to believe my own eyes. Based on what I know of physics and engineering, and what I take to be knowledge from others who have demonstrated their expertise and rationality to me, the most common (simplest technology) that could be used to accomplish this is a combination of missles or bombs (for the initial "bang" that entranced us), and traditional controlled demolition via carefully placed and timed explosives (for the 16-second fall-into-the-footprint-and-rise-into-the-sky obliteration). That does not mean that is what definitely happened. It is far easier to ascertain what is a lie, than to ascertain what is the truth. The story the government is telling (in the 9/11 Commission Report and other public statements) is definitely a LIE. How?!? Why?!??!? That, my dear friends, is the question. Thank you Rick Siegal.

For information about how long the towers took to be destroyed I highly recommend this site: http://911research.wtc7.net/wtc/analysis/collapses/freefall.html. But do check around everywhere, and I think you'll find your other resources essentially agree with this one, as well.

CBC interview with Chris Hedges: "AMERICAN FASCISTS" The Christian Right vs USA

Chris Hedges - Who Are the American Fascists?



Description from Google Video: "Chris Hedges, reporter, 2002 Pulitzer Prize Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges explores the rise of the Christian right in America, drawing parallels with the rise of fascism in Europe prior to the Second World War. How does the vision of the United States as a Christian nation relate to our Bill of Rights? Why does Hedges identify the increasing political power of Christian fundamentalism as a war against America? This program is supported in part by a grant from the Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities." 73 minute lecture.

Orwell Rolls In His Grave


THIS VIDEO LINK (to "Orwell Rolls In His Grave") WAS REMOVED FROM GOOGLE VIDEO...BUT PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR LINK TO NEWER POST WHERE I UPDATED THE VIDEO LINK (FOUND ANOTHER WORKING), AND ADDED SOME MORE COMMENTARY. THNX!

Outstanding video showcasing interviews with former major news media producers and journalists, as well as academics, speaking out about the takeover of the media by corporate conglomerates and wealthy political interest groups. A great introduction to media issues in the US.

Description from Google Video: "Orwell Rolls in His Grave 'Could a media system, controlled by a few global corporations with the ability to overwhelm all competing voices, be able to turn lies into truth?...' This chilling documentary film examines the relationship between the media, corporate America, and government. In a country where the 'top 1% control 90% of the wealth', the film argues that the media system is nothing but a 'subsidiary of corporate America.'

My America: A Government of Deception and Corruption



Let us not forget the big obvious lies in the midst of uncovering less obvious ones. This short, 28-minute film, covers three of the central lies told about the war on Iraq prior to the inception of it, in order to sell the war to the American people: 1) that Iraq definitely possesses and plans to use weapons of mass destruction (MASSIVE LIE), 2) that Iraq is harboring and supporting al Qaeda (MASSIVE LIE), and 3) that intention of the US is to free the Iraqi people from a dictatorship (MASSIVE LIE). Good summary.

BBC Two's documentary "The Trap" by Adam Curtis - three ~1 hr. parts

The Trap - 1 - F*k You Buddy (BBC Two / Adam Curtis):


The Trap - 2 - The Lonely Robot (BBC Two / Adam Curtis):


The Trap - 3 - We Will Force U 2 Be Free (BBC Two / Adam Curtis):


Another film by BBC documentarian Adam Curtis. While I prefer The Power of Nightmares and The Century of the Self (see page of all Adam Curtis documentaries), this one is well worth watching too. I find his interpretation of Friedrich von Hayek's philosophy and other free market philosophies (though not necessarily their uses by wealthy politicos) to be dubious, but nonetheless Curtis, as always, throws all kinds of opinions into the mix. I especially recommend the discussion of psychiatry and the "normalization" of society, in particular the interviews with psychiatrists Paul McHugh and Jerome Walkfield.

911 Octopus - New World Order



Still trying to understand and evaluate this stuff, and the only semi-decent presentations of this theory out there are this, 911 Octopus, and a video I posted recently called September Clues. They're definitely on to something, but what?

McCain or Obama likely would sell United States to global corporate interest groups

See especially t=3:38-5:54. The rest is clips from the great film Zeitgeist (Click here to watch Zeitgeist):


The individual who posted this video titled it, "Obama & McCain are traitors like Bush! JOIN LIBERTY CAMPAIGN." I'm not sure whether either Barack Obama or John McCain have already committed treason from what is in this video, but I do think that either one of them, like Bush, will commit treason with regards to this issue if he becomes President, based upon what each of them has said that he will do. I likewise agree with the video title's sentiment calling out for people to join the Campaign for Liberty (Campaign for Liberty website).

But there is something else that is particularly astonishing in this video. It is the clip of John McCain and the clip of Barack Obama (located at 3:38-4:15 and 4:25-5:54 respectively) in which each speaks to the issue of the political and economic integration of North America. I agree with (what I surmise to be) the thesis of the creator of this video, that both NAFTA (the North American Free Trade Agreement), and the SPP (Security and Prosperity Partnership, formed by the leaders of Canada, the US and Mexico), are clearly aiming towards the European Union-style integration of the (formerly) sovereign states of North America. These two clips demonstrate that both of the leading candidates for President of the United States are clearly either ill-informed and/or being intentionally evasive about their plans with regards to what may be called the North American Union. The sovereignty of the United States is already being dissolved by the working groups of the SPP (click on their logo below to check out what they have to say about themselves), as they moderate among the laws of each nation to make them compatible.

The new Union is already underway, and unless a presidential candidate specifically condemns this process, we can be assured that he will not try to stop it, and that he is therefore not on the side of the people; he is on the side of corporate-driven globalization. McCain says he's all for it; Obama stutters and makes a joke, and even makes light of the influences of the incredibly powerful Council on Foreign Relations. Neither man will do this country any good.

Go to the SPP website and see if you can figure out what they're up to:


Once you've taken a gander at that, consider the Campaign For Liberty as a revolutionary strategy to stop them:

Ron Paul - Superb speech in Louisville, Kentucky (17 May 2008)

First part (about 9 minutes):


Second part, start video at 3:45 (about 7 minutes). I recommend just listening on this one, the camera is super-shaky:

Ron Paul Gives Fed Charman Bernanke an Education on CNBC (2 April 2008)



Joint Economic Committee, 2 April 2008

Ron Paul lays it all out: the military industrial complex, the medical industrial complex, media collusion with the government, invasions of privacy and strippings of rights...basically pointing out that the prevailing philosophy in D.C. now is that the interests of our government should be aligned with the interests of big business, that the government should make decisions for the people, instead of executing the decisions of the people. Did I hear a quiver in Bernanke's voice?

Ron Paul Blasts Chairman of Federal Reserve on National T.V. (November 2007)



"There’s dollar crisis out there and people’s money’s being stolen. People who have saved, they’re being robbed.”

Ron Paul presents his question to Ben Bernanke in this simple way: “My question boils down to this, how in the world can we expect to solve the problems of inflation, that is, the increase in the supply of money, with more inflation?," and all Bernanke can do is blame it on people who rightfully have tried to protect their hard-saved resources in this shoddy, upside-down market by moving their money to safer investments. Shameful and intellectually lazy! Ron Paul is so clear, while Ben Bernanke's language is vague and full of excuses. A teller of truth never has to dissemble so much.

And here's a surprisingly interesting follow-up coverage on CNBC (and a short clip from Fox):



Thank you Don Luskin, Trend Macro Chief Investment Officer, for being reasonable! I don't know anything else about this man, but certainly doesn't sound like an "NWO"-er to me.

"Our monetary system insidiously transfers wealth from the poor and the middle class to the privileged rich." - Ron Paul



Learning about the Federal Reserve and its history, and the fiat money system it perpetuates, is absolutely crucial to understanding what and who it is that we must fight (yes, Fight) to gain and hold fast our civil liberties. I didn't understand a lick about it until eight months ago, and now that I am learning about how it began and how it operates, a LOT of things going on in this world of ours make more sense. In this video dated 2/17/2007, which aired on C-SPAN, you will see Ron Paul who has been fighting the good fight in Congress as Representative of the 14th district of Texas for 11 straight years (and for a spell before that, too).

Transcription of an excerpt from this video clip: “The dollar today is worth only four cents compared to the dollar that the Federal Reserve started with in 1913. This has significant consequences on our economy and on our political stability. All paper currencies are vulnerable to collapse, and history is replete with examples of great suffering caused by these collapses, especially to the nations’ poor and the middle class. This can lead to political turmoil as well. Even before a currency collapses, the damage done by a fiat system is significant. Our monetary system insidiously transfers wealth from the poor and the middle class to the privileged rich. Wages never keep up with profits on Wall Street and the banks, thus sewing the seeds of class and discontent. When economic trouble hits, free markets and free trade are often blamed, while the harmful effects of a fiat money system are ignored.

It is the welfare state that is destroying this nation, but probably not the kind of "welfare state" that most people think. It is not food stamps and Section 8 housing that are wrecking this nation, it is Corporate Welfare. And if it weren't for the corporate welfare machine (primarily in the form of the Federal Reserve) constantly vacuuming money from the pockets of the poor to the coffers of the rich, there would be many fewer who would even have the need for help with the basic necessities of life.

The Federal Reserve is unconstitutional, and ultimately...it's a SCAM. The national tradition of the United States began, in large part, as a collective action taken to escape inequitable taxation and usury. It's time to remember those Robber Barons, and put them back into their places once again. Their monopolization and constant string-pulling is leading the world down a path of no return. If you are not sure this is the case, I strongly encourage you watch or read just a little bit about the Federal Reserve (from whatever set of diverse resources seems reasonable to you), study whatever terms you don't understand, then just watch the news for a few days. What used to sound like droning economic mumbojumbo may very well start sounding like confessions of theft--because, that is exactly what they are doing. Please, investigate for yourself, and for all of us.

September Clues (full version part 1-9)



And how about this film, September Clues? I'm still not sure what to make of it. A new investigation is required; I am absolutely convinced the towers did not just fall down, or burn down, or melt down in any way that could have been caused by an airplane crash. Merely watching the video of the event (without any preconceived notions about what is happening), even without listening to and reading all of the great analyses that have been presented online and throughout the world, it is easy to see that a building just does not explode into pulverized concrete because an airplane hits it, no matter how much fuel it has on board or how fast it is flying. That much is clear. This "no planes" theory based on graphic analysis is not so clear.

Larry McDonald debates one world government on Crossfire with Pat Buchanan and Tom Braden (spring of 1983)



Larry McDonald debating (against) one world government on Crossfire with Pat Buchanan and Tom Braden in the spring of 1983. Topics include the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). McDonald was a member of the United States House of Representatives, representing the seventh congressional district of Georgia as a Democrat from January 3, 1975 until his disappearance on September 1, 1983.

In this episode of Crossfire, McDonald is primarily questioned in light of his recently assumed role as the Chairman of the “ultraconservative”* John Birch Society, an organization founded in 1958 which is still in existence today. (Their website may be found at: http://www.jbs.org.) McDonald makes the argument that organizations such as the Trilateral Commission and CFR have as their goal the “dissolution of national sovereignty on the way to world government.” Interestingly, one of the men interviewing him, Tom Braden, is a member of one of the very organizations that McDonald claims is trying to create one world government: the CFR. Watch as Braden is first taken aback, and then becomes curious about McDonald’s assertions. And Mr. Buchanan is his usual, charming self also. A great discussion.

* Left – Right, Liberal – Conservative designations in politics are total bullshit (i.e. highly propagandistic), and this is a perfect example…an “ultraconservative” Democrat in the 1980s. It’s much easier to understand what politicians are talking about if one forgets about the labels that they try to give themselves. And if you find yourself arguing with anyone about whether to vote for Obama or for McCain, JUST STOP! It is a futile endeavor, at least choose persons who are distinguishable from one another to discuss.

Tactical Nuke Explodes in Baghdad? (10 October 2006)



Video said to be taken on 10 October 2006 in Baghdad, which shows what certainly looks like a small nuclear explosion (whatever "small" can mean in that context). The explosion occurs at 3:57 minutes in, but it is advisable to watch the whole thing (~5 min.) to put it into context. Looking through the comments on YouTube, it seems to be the consensus among commenting viewers that this is an authentic video, taken on the date it was said to be taken on, and at the location it was said to be taken at. The debate is whether or not the explosion is nuclear. It is, in any event, an absolutely huge, non-conventional-looking explosion. Watch and see what you think.

Historic Interview with Aaron Russo, Fighting Cancer and the New World Order



Notes from Google Video: "Hollywood director Russo goes in-depth for first time on the astounding admissions of Nick Rockefeller, including his prediction of 9/11 and the war on terror hoax, the Rockefeller's creation of women's lib, and the elite's ultimate plan for world population reduction and a microchipped society Aaron Russo joins Alex Jones for a fascinating sit-down in depth video interview on a plethora of important subjects. Aaron begins by describing how the draconian and mafia tactics of Chicago police woke him up to the fact that America wasn't free after his nightclub was routinely raided and he was forced to pay protection money. Aaron and Alex then cover a broad range of topics including the private run for profit federal reserve, Aaron's experience in the late 80's with the IRS when they retroactively passed laws to punish silver and gold traders, the real meaning of the word "democracy," what really happened on 9/11 and Aaron's relationship with Nick Rockefeller, who personally tried to recruit him on behalf of the CFR. Aaron also relates how Rockefeller told him that the elite created women's liberation to destroy the family and how they want to ultimately microchip and control the entire population. Rockefeller also told before 9/11 Russo that an unexpected "event" would catalyze the U.S. to invade Afghanistan and Iraq."

Kucinich presents BUSH IMPEACHMENT articles 6-9-08



The impeachment of President Bush: a rare moment of bravery in Congress. This clip covers the beginning of Kucinich's time on the floor and covers the first article, "creating a secret propoganda campaign to manufacture a false cause for war against Iraq."

And to recollect a somewhat-further-back moment of honesty and bravery in Congress, also brought to us by Representative Dennis Kucinich, witness here the articles of impeachment of Vice President Cheney on 11.6.07:
