Independence Day Hypocrisy | Veterans Today

Independence Day Hypocrisy | Veterans Today: "All US federal holidays wreak of hypocrisy, representing notions and events other than what they commemorate. Besides Christmas, none perhaps is more celebrated than when America became independent from Britain on July 4, 1776.

Coming in the summer, parades, outings, barbecues, other celebratory events, and baseball highlight the day for many – relaxing, not reflecting on the same independence we deny nations globally, waging imperial wars and other ways to prevent it.

July 4 also commemorates America’s history, liberation and traditions most people don’t know, never learned, or forgot. Instead – in school to the highest levels and through media managed news – they’ve been force fed distortions, half truths and illusions to believe what, in fact, isn’t true now and never was, a sanitized rewritten history, what historian Howard Zinn corrected in his “People’s History of the United States.”"

THE ANTI-JOURNALISTS

THE ANTI-JOURNALISTS: "Journalists. We pay them well, we rely on them to inform us, they're the 'filter' through which most of us see and understand our world.

But there's a problem – a very big problem. Today, an overwhelming number of 'mainstream' journalists, rather than serving the traditional role of the press as professional truth-tellers, have shifted 180 degrees in their mission, to become – as July's sensational Whistleblower issue proves – 'ANTI-JOURNALISTS.'

The subtitle says it all: 'Not only do they refuse to report the truth – they attack you if you do.'


As this groundbreaking issue shows, America's establishment press has progressed way, way beyond 'liberal bias.' It has morphed into a virtual branch of government, an unofficial 'propaganda ministry' for the establishment elite. As such, it thrives – along with the increasingly aggressive 'media watchdog' groups like Media Matters – on attacking those who dare to speak the truth or ask unwelcome questions.

And little wonder: As 'THE ANTI-JOURNALISTS' documents, none other than leftwing billionaire George Soros is now linked to – are you ready for this? – more than 30 major news organizations in the United States. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg of this amazing issue.

Prison Planet.com � “Conspiracies” Are Common Everyday Events

Prison Planet.com � “Conspiracies” Are Common Everyday Events: "In a June column, I concluded that “conspiracy theory” is a term applied to any fact, analysis, or truth that is politically, ideologically, or emotionally unacceptable. This column is about how common real conspiracies are. Every happening cannot be explained by a conspiracy, but conspiracies are common everyday events. Therefore, it is paradoxical that “conspiracy theory” has become a synonym for “unbelievable.”

Conspiracies are commonly used in order to advance agendas. In the July issue of American Rifleman, a National Rifle Association publication, the organization’s executive vice president, Wayne Lapierre reports on a congressional investigation led by Senator Charles Grassley and Representative Darrell Issa of a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and Department of Justice conspiracy to further gun control measures by smuggling guns across the border to Mexican criminals and blaming it on American firearm sellers."

I was shocked over the weekend to witness a full-scale talking point in the media demonizing our Founders and the precious Constitution. Please comment below with examples you’ve witnessed over the weekend so we can compile a more detailed report later in the week.
Please get this report out to everyone you know. It is our job as 21st Century Paul Reveres to raise the alarm that the enemy is within the gates working overtime to destroy the Republic and reduce us to absolute slavery.

Alan Stang -- How We Got Here - Where We Are Going: "As I write, Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, aka Barry Obama, aka Barack Dunham, aka Barry Dunham, aka Barack Soetoro, et al., persists in refusing to prove his eligibility to be President. The nation faces a historic constitutional crisis, in the midst of which Republicrud Party activists – typically treasonous – are once again trying to sneak a new constitutional convention through the state legislatures. If they succeed, they will repeal the Constitution and abolish the country.

Meanwhile, reports from gun stores around the country say that Senator Also Known As has surprisingly become the greatest salesman in the history of firearms. People who don’t know how to load a gun are buying them, in fear that if Eric Holder, who hates private firearms with a passion, becomes Attorney General, he could cripple the Second Amendment even before a Constitutional Convention could repeal it."

July 4 Heartwarmer: A Marine and His Miracle Dog (A Must Read Article)

July 4 Heartwarmer: A Marine and His Miracle Dog (A Must Read Article): "A stray Iraqi dog recovering from abuse walked 70 miles to find the U.S. Marine who had shown him affection.

While in Iraq, Marine Major Brian Dennis and an Iraqi stray dog — later named Nubs — developed a friendship that turned into a lifelong companionship. Major Dennis (along with Kirby Larson and Mary Nethery) has since written a children’s book about his buddy: Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine & a Miracle.

Dennis and his unit, part of a Border Transition Team, were deployed to help train Iraqi soldiers at a fort 15 miles east of the Jordanian/Syrian/Iraqi border, traveling between the fort and their forward operating base. During one of those visits, as Brian stepped out of his humvee, a mid-size dog resembling a German shepherd came up to the major. Nubs was the alpha dog of a pack of 12 to 15 strays. Says Nethery: “It was like the alpha dog meets the alpha Marine. It is definitely fascinating how that happened.”"

Barack Obama to ask New York governor Andrew Cuomo to be his 2012 running mate for vice president: "A Prominent Republican is joining a prominent Democrat in predicting that Gov. Cuomo will become President Obama's running mate for vice president next year.

Former New York GOP boss William Powers, credited with playing a key role in electing Rudy Giuliani mayor and George Pataki governor, was effusive in his praise of Cuomo's successes in the just-ended legislative session, and in his prediction of the freshman governor's political future.

'Andrew had a fabulous session. It was fabulous. A property-tax cap, ethics reform and, for Democrats, gay marriage,' said Powers.

Islam’s Non-Existent Contribution to America

Islam’s Non-Existent Contribution to America: "Robert Spencer wrote, “The idea that Islamic culture was once a beacon of learning and enlightenment is a commonly held myth. In fact, much of this has been exaggerated, often for quite transparent apologetic motives.”

The exaggerated role of Islam is a revisionist attempt to inflate the Arab culture. As my very wise grandmother would say, a few flowers of wisdom do not constitute an enlightened and sunny spring.

Newsweek’s Voodoo ‘Gospel’ by Thomas DiLorenzo � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL)

Newsweek’s Voodoo ‘Gospel’ by Thomas DiLorenzo � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL): "Lincoln may have been an atheist, but he fully understood that most Americans were certainly not, that they read the Bible, and that their emotions could be rather easily swayed by references to the Bible, especially at wartime when emotion seems to overwhelm reason on the part of much of the population.

As preparation for his political career Lincoln read the Bible (which he mocked) over and over (along with Shakespeare and various books on rhetoric and speech making). He cynically used Biblical language to make political points, sometimes insinuating that his policies were the will of God, and at other times absolving himself from all responsibility for them, saying, for example, that all the death and destruction of the war was the work of God, and that he had nothing to do with it. That was the theme of his Second Inaugural Address. The war just “came,” he said, and was God’s punishment of America’s sins (pretending to know what is in the mind of God). (Boritt claims that Lincoln’s speeches had “no touch” of self-righteousness!).

Obama’s ineligibility: The gauntlet has been thrown down; the battle has been forced upon us

Obama’s ineligibility: The gauntlet has been thrown down; the battle has been forced upon us: "The history of the present occupant of the White House and the current US Congress has been a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny.

“If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” - Samuel Adams

That time has come.

Vain and aspiring men have installed an illegal President. They have tolerated violations of the law at the highest levels of government and they have concealed the truth from the American people.

“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people; it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.” – Patrick Henry

Vain and aspiring men are shredding our Constitution to enhance and extend their own political and financial power while confiscating our liberties.

“We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.” - Thomas Jefferson,"

"Did You Sign the Constitution? If not, says Lysander Spooner, it has zero authority over you."

"Did You Sign the Constitution?
If not, says Lysander Spooner, it has zero authority over you.
"
***
The Constitution has no inherent authority or obligation. It has no authority or obligation at all, unless as a contract between man and man. And it does not so much as even purport to be a contract between persons now existing. It purports, at most, to be only a contract between persons living eighty years ago. And it can be supposed to have been a contract then only between persons who had already come to years of discretion, so as to be competent to make reasonable and obligatory contracts.

Furthermore, we know, historically, that only a small portion even of the people then existing were consulted on the subject, or asked, or permitted to express either their consent or dissent in any formal manner. Those persons, if any, who did give their consent formally, are all dead now. Most of them have been dead forty, fifty, sixty, or seventy years. And the constitution, so far as it was their contract, died with them. They had no natural power or right to make it obligatory upon their children.
It is not only plainly impossible, in the nature of things, that they could bind their posterity, but they did not even attempt to bind them. 
That is to say, the instrument does not purport to be an agreement between any body but "the people" then existing; nor does it, either expressly or impliedly, assert any right, power, or disposition, on their part, to bind anybody but themselves. Let us see. Its language is:

Tricked on the Fourth of July by Gary North

Tricked on the Fourth of July by Gary North: "I do not celebrate the fourth of July. This goes back to a term paper I wrote in graduate school. It was on colonial taxation in the British North American colonies in 1775. Not counting local taxation, I discovered that the total burden of British imperial taxation was about 1% of national income. It may have been as high as 2.5% in the southern colonies.

In 2008, Alvin Rabushka's book of almost 1,000 pages appeared: Taxation in Colonial America (Princeton University Press). In a review published in the Business History Review, the reviewer summarizes the book's findings."

Leader of Pima County's GOP faces removal effort

Leader of Pima County's GOP faces removal effort: "Pima County Republican Party leaders voted late Thursday to take party chairman Brian Miller’s keys to the GOP headquarters away and call a special meeting to try to remove him from his post.

Miller has been under fire from party stalwarts for the past month, with multiple meetings called in recent weeks after he criticized a SWAT raid in May that resulted in the shooting death of a man law enforcement officers said they suspected of involvement in drug dealing.

Several elected officials and party leaders have complained that his comments pitted the party against law enforcement at a time when city elections are looming and candidates are gearing up for bigger 2012 races.

After questions were raised about the amount of police force used in serving a search warrant Miller said he hoped the incident would foster community discussion of “the policies that routinely lead to heavily armed and militarized local police invading private homes and a renewed interest in the civil liberties codified in our Bill of Rights.”

After Miller refused to resign,"

A Fourth Of July Pep Talk| The Post & Email

A Fourth Of July Pep Talk| The Post & Email: "Well, my little pep talk to myself must have worked, because I sat down and wrote a letter to my two Senators and my Representative. Like many of your readers, I get so disgusted with Congress because they don’t seem to care or listen to us and I would like to just throw my hands in the air and give up! BUT you can’t win if you don’t even try. I had read an article by Devvy Kidd where she said that writing to Congress using snail mail was better than emails or phone calls “because a member of Congress can’t ignore 300,000 letters delivered by the mailman. Hard copy letters can’t be ignored like email because they’re stacked on a desk to the ceiling.” That made sense to me, so while I usually email them I decided to try writing a real letter and drop it in the mail.

I won’t bore you with the actual letters, and no, I did not use the word ‘impeachment,’ because I am done asking about that, but"

Just Say “No More!!!”| The Post & Email: "“SILENCE MAKES COWARDS OUT OF THE BEST OF MEN”

by Jim Delaney, blogging at Opinerlog

(Jul. 3, 2011) — ON THIS JULY 4TH, and after a few years now of trying to write many of what I had hoped were some sober and well-researched informational posts, allow me the luxury of simply blowing off steam for a moment. Hey, it’s therapeutic.

Anyone willing to take the time to honestly and objectively examine Obama’s background and his transparently un-American associations, statements and actions should be justifiably horrified and deeply incensed. Only if one is completely brain-dead or otherwise disengaged can one fail to share this anger and trepidation.

Only the willfully ignorant and both the soulless political hacks and self-serving recipients of public largesse are still capable of shamelessly and delusionally denying the obvious: Marxism has taken hold in the highest rungs of our government; the feds are out-of-control and unrepresentative; Congress has abdicated"

The Jeffington Files: A Reflection on Independence Day| The Post & Email

The Jeffington Files: A Reflection on Independence Day| The Post & Email: "Just two years earlier, General Washington and the other founders of freedom, set pen to a document that eclipsed the Magna Carta and all other documents written in the 2nd millennium AD, that enumerated the unalienable rights of men, in these immortal words: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

The Declaration of Independence was, in reality, a rallying cry from all men across the world, that they would not lay down and play dead to the tyranny of a few powerful men, organizations or nations and that they would defend those rights that came from their creator with their lives, if necessary.

Coincidentally, while I was in General Washington’s camp, Washington issued a special ration of rum"

Prison Planet.com � Rupert Murdoch’s Failing Attempts to Control the Internet Reformation: "Rupert Murdoch lost nearly his entire investment in MySpace the other day when he sold the failing social network to musician and actor Justin Timberlake and an ad agency he backs for some US$30 million. This was a good deal less than the US$500 million-plus Murdoch paid for it.

Why did Murdoch make such a bad investment? Because he hoped to use the network as a vehicle from which he could disseminate news. He wanted to make MySpace into a mechanism to deliver current-events content. When it didn’t work out"

It was difficult to discern whether we were reading Time, or Orwells’1984.

It portrays the Constitution as an outmoded document that we should ignore to whatever extent is expedient to pursue someone’s vision of a better society: “We cannot let the Constitution become an obstacle to a future with a sensible health care system, a globalized economy, and evolving sense of civil and political rights.”"

BONUS JULY 4TH COLUMN! EXCERPTED FROM THE SMASH BESTELLER, 'DEMONIC': "BONUS JULY 4TH COLUMN! EXCERPTED FROM THE SMASH BESTELLER, 'DEMONIC'

July 3, 2011

The reason our revolution was the opposite of a directionless, violent mob running wild in the streets is that the dominant American culture was Anglo-Saxon and Christian. Even while fighting “the British,” as we now call them, Americans considered themselves British with the rights of Englishmen, who bore the tradition of the Magna Carta.

In fact, one rebel explained that he was fighting the Redcoats to protect his house by saying, “An Englishman’s home is his castle.”

They just wanted to be free of meddling from the Crown. Having been born and raised in the distant and expansive American colonies, Americans objected to the high-handed way King George was dealing with them. They didn’t hate the king—to the contrary, John Adams and Alexander Hamilton dispassionately acknowledged that the English political system was better than most others in the world."
