General Smedley Butler: War Is A Racket | September 28th, 2011

It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to. I spent thirty- three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country’s most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle- man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.

I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service. – General Smedley D. Butler in his book, War Is A Racket.

Oath Keepers Member Writes Senator Expressing Concerns About FBI Targeting Preppers for Surveillance and Senator’s Staff Reports His Letter to the FBI. | September 27th, 2011

Stewart,

I read your article on the Oath Keepers website about the Colorado FBI surplus store flyer, and I was so incensed that I sent a copy of the flyer to Senator Jim Webb of Virginia asking him to look into the FBI’s behavior. Little did I know that my request for my Senator’s oversight over the FBI would result in me being reported to the FBI.

Wall Street Journal: Expect a Third-Party Candidate in 2012 | September 26th, 2011

A Rasmussen Reports poll conducted earlier this month found that “just 17% of likely U.S. voters think that the federal government today has the consent of the governed,” while an extraordinary 69% “believe the government does not have that consent.”

What’s more, a poll of 1,000 Americans conducted by Douglas E. Schoen LLC in April found that a solid majority of Americans are now looking for alternatives to the two-party system. Overall, a majority (57%) of all respondents said there is a need for a third party. – Wall Street Journal September 25, 2011

TSA Trying New ‘Chat Down’ Procedures | September 26th, 2011

The pilot program began last month in Logan’s Terminal A. It’s designed to analyze passenger behavior. The risk-based approach requires passengers to answer simple questions as they go through security.

“The bottom line is, we want to assess the risk of every passenger, and then manage that risk appropriately,” said George Naccara of the TSA.

Introduction: James Bovard is the author of nine books, including Attention Deficit Democracy (2006), The Bush Betrayal (2004), and Lost Rights: The Destruction of American Liberty (1994).

Daily Bell: Thanks for sitting down with us. What is the state of freedom in the world today?

SAFER STREETS 2012: REPEAL ALL GUN LAWS | September 24th, 2011

This is because, at the scene of the crime, gun control is among the policies most absent. If its purpose is to reduce violence, anti-violence programs have called in sick.

In contrast, in time of violence, when the target of crime is armed, there is more law present, more public policy present, and more public interest served than by all the gun laws in force, gun laws which are utterly absent from that scene at the moment they are needed most. There is then no more void. The citizen authority has filled it.

Remember that you do not find violence, it finds you, and any policy of disarming the Sovereign in this country is essential to the eventual transfer of our sovereignty away from the citizen and to the State.

Every 2012 candidate needs to be asked if they believe the citizens of this country are the Sovereign. They then need to be asked on the record why they would permit the servants’ gun control of the Sovereign even one more day.

Brazil Towns Issue Own Money | September 23rd, 2011

In Pockets of Booming Brazil, a Mint Idea Gains Currency … Towns Issue Their Own Money, Which Brings Local Discounts … After school and on weekends, Carlos Leandro Peixoto de Abril sells ice cream made by his grandmother from a stoop alongside the family’s cinder-block home. Instead of Brazilian reals, though, the 11-year-old prefers payment in capivaris—a local currency emblazoned with the face of a giant rodent. – Wall Street Journal

Welcome To The Collapse Of 2011 | September 23rd, 2011

emember the mantra that “consumers have delevered” which has been run over the last two years as an incessant bark from the media, attempting to goad you, the consumer, into more spending and more consumption to “lift the economy.”

This claim has been a lie and a fraud upon the public and the new Fed Z1 makes this clear. The peak household credit liability was $13.92 trillion. It currently stands at $13.30 trillion, a reduction of a mere 4.6%.

Is China Ready To Pull The Plug? | September 22nd, 2011

There are two mainstream market assumptions that, in my mind, prevail over all others. The continuing function of the Dow, the sustained flow of capital into and out of the banking sector, and the full force spending of the federal government are ALL entirely dependent on the lifespan of these dual illusions; one, that the U.S. Dollar is a legitimate safe haven investment and will remain so indefinitely, and two, that China, like many other developing nations, will continue to prop up the strength of the dollar indefinitely because it is “in their best interest”. In the dimly lit bowels of Wall Street such ideas are so entrenched and pervasive, to question their validity is almost sacrilegious. Only after the recent S&P downgrade of America’s AAA credit rating did the impossible become thinkable to some MSM analysts, though a considerable portion of the day-trading herd continue to roll onward, while the time bomb strapped to the ass end of their financial house is ticking away.

Bamford: NSA ‘Enemies’ Include Us | September 21st, 2011

Despite his hollow campaign protests, President Barack Obama has greatly expanded what President George W. Bush began. And through amendments to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, Congress largely ratified the secret Bush program.

So much intercepted information is now being collected from “enemies” at home and abroad that, in order to store it all, the agency last year began constructing the ultimate monument to eavesdropping. Rising in a remote corner of Utah, the agency’s gargantuan data storage center will be 1 million square feet, cost nearly $2 billion and likely be capable of eventually holding more than a yottabyte of data — equal to about a septillion (1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) pages of text.

Pentagon’s New Power Elite: A Secret War in 120 Countries | September 21st, 2011

To that end, Olson launched “Project Lawrence,” an effort to increase cultural proficiencies — like advanced language training and better knowledge of local history and customs — for overseas operations. The program is, of course, named after the British officer, Thomas Edward Lawrence (better known as “Lawrence of Arabia”), who teamed up with Arab fighters to wage a guerrilla war in the Middle East during World War I. Mentioning Afghanistan, Pakistan, Mali, and Indonesia, Olson added that SOCOM now needed “Lawrences of Wherever.”

The Conspiracy Against Ron Paul | September 20th, 2011

The partial audit he prompted revealed that close to $16 trillion was doled out to Euro-American insiders and their corporations in 2008 alone. That is more than the entire national debt. It is a tax on every American and unless you are getting billions of that money yourself, you ought to be outraged and grateful to Ron Paul for figuring this all out.

The Daily Bell Interviews Nelson Hultberg | September 19th, 2011

Daily Bell: Is it true that the status quo is leading the country, and possibly the world, into totalitarianism?

Nelson Hultberg: Absolutely. We have descended into the “rabbit hole” of Alice and Wonderland politically and philosophically. Up is down, and down is up under the collectivist worldview. “When I use a word,” said Humpty Dumpty to Alice, “it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.” The collectivists have so corrupted our language that the slavery of socialism is now a “new kind of freedom.” Marx understood all this very well. Corrupt the money and the language, and capitalism will fall. The statists are shameless in their shyster usage of words. And the masses are unable to see the semantic fraud involved. Thus with each passing decade, we drift further and further into total government. The status quo of statism that began in 1913 and solidified itself with FDR and LBJ is bankrupt. It has no answers. It destroys freedom and prosperity as tuberculosis destroys lungs and breath. Yet it continues to move us into the morass of political absolutism because the integrity of our money and the clarity of our language have been turned into tools of tyranny.
