Vacation May Provide a Break from Washington’s Woes (Lobster for me, Food Stamps for thee...)

Vacation May Provide a Break from Washington’s Woes (Lobster for me, Food Stamps for thee...):

VINEYARD HAVEN, Mass. — President Obama slipped out of Washington on Thursday to join his family for a nine-day vacation on Martha’s Vineyard, leaving behind the most dismal stretch of his presidency and looking to recharge for what is sure to be an epic political battle this fall over the nation’s finances.

Prison Planet.com � Is Obama About to Commit America To War With Syria?:

The Obama administration is laying the groundwork for yet another war that America does not want and cannot afford by mirroring precisely what preceded the bombardment of Libya in officially calling for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down.
Is Obama About to Commit America To War With Syria? 37650c syria81811

“President Obama and the leaders of Germany, Britain, France and Canada called Thursday for Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, to give up power,” reports the New York Times. “The choreographed move follows months of popular protests and deadly reprisals in Syria.”

The announcement was preceded by the UN’s move to pull all non-essential staff and dozens of families of expatriate workers from Syria yesterday....................

Fiasco: Obama's Mideast Mess (Oliver North):

WASHINGTON — Having completed his three-state "Midwest listening tour," President Barack Obama is now on vacation on Martha's Vineyard.

According to his handlers, in between golf outings and cocktail parties, our president also is working on yet another speech on how he will balance our government's books and put Americans back to work.

Those who believe that ought to recall his remarks March 22, five days after U.S. and allied military operations began in Libya: "I said at the outset that this was going to be a matter of days and not weeks."

Russian network host boasts of 'money bomb' for Ron Paul

Russian network host boasts of 'money bomb' for Ron Paul
WorldNetDaily ^ | August 17, 2011 | F. Michael Maloof

WASHINGTON – A commentator on the Russian government-funded television news network RT boasted of a $1 million "money bomb" on behalf of U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination.
The donation raises legal questions, because while the commentator happens to be an American, allowing him to donate to Paul's presidential campaign, foreign entities such as RT are prohibited.

"I'd like to end tonight on a note of some good news," said Adam Kokesh, a former U.S. Marine who has a segment on RT called "Adam vs. The Man."
"We have some good news from the front lines of the Ron Paul 'LOVEaluation' with our money bomb on June 5.

"Yesterday we raised over $1 million for the Ron Paul campaign. And I'm starting to figure out what electable means, because electable or non-electable is really a code word for 'if this person wins, I'm not gonna be able to get as much money from the government,'" he said.

The comments came on his June 6 program on RT, formerly known as Russia Today, which effectively has endorsed Paul's candidacy.
But contributions from RT, which observers say is tied to Russia's intelligence services, would raise legal questions.

The Russian media outlet is a foreign entity and, in effect, an instrument of the Russian government. Support for Paul from RT is due to the congressman's opposition to U.S. involvement in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
News of RT's backing of Paul surfaced just after the Aug. 12 Iowa Straw Poll, won by Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minn., with 4,823, or 28.6 percent of the vote. She was closely followed by Paul, who captured 4,671 votes, or 27.7 percent...

NEWS: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE August 18, 2011 US CONSTITUTION INVALID, SAID IDAHO SUPREME COURT

NEWS: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 18, 2011
US CONSTITUTION INVALID, SAID IDAHO SUPREME COURT

Edgar J. Steele steele@conspiracypenpal.com
 
Private Attorneys No Longer Allowed
In a stunning, far-reaching and precedent-setting ruling issued by the Idaho Supreme Court this past week, the right to confidential communications between attorneys and individuals charged with crimes under the Sixth Amendment of the US Constitution henceforth is no longer enforced in Idaho.
Without comment, the entire bench of the Idaho Supreme Court has ruled that the Sixth Amendment of the US Constitution no longer applies within the boundary of Idaho. This result was obtained from the summary dismissal of a complaint lodged against Assistant US Attorney Traci Whelan by Attorney Edgar J. Steele, formerly admitted to practice before all courts in the states of Idaho, Washington, Oregon and California, as well as virtually all Federal Courts up to and including the US Supreme Court.
Steele’s complaint about AUSA Whelan’s behavior first was sent to the Idaho State Bar (ISB), and then was forwarded to the Idaho Supreme Court because Whelan herself sits on the ISB attorney committee.
Attorney Steele’s complaint went much further than making out a prima-facie case of criminal behavior on the part of AUSA Whelan and the entire justice department of the United States of America up to and including President Barrack Obama, not to mention his Attorney General, Eric Holder, who nominally heads up the US Justice Department as all of them are complicit in the intrusion into the former right to confidential attorney/client communication. 

Lack Of Transparency

Lack Of Transparency:

Accountability: After a long legal battle, a federal judge has ruled that White House visitor logs are public and can be released under the Freedom of Information Act. So much for the White House's vaunted claim to openness.

It took the lawyers of Judicial Watch almost two years to pry open White House records on the matter of who visited the president and his advisers in the first seven months of Obama's administration.

That information was solemnly promised to voters by candidate Obama in his 2008 campaign as a means of distinguishing his governing style from the supposedly ominous, secretive Halliburton-scarred presidency of his predecessor, George W. Bush.

"My administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government," the White House website intoned. "Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in government."

That's not reality since Obama's arrival in the White House.

Visitor logs suddenly were off-limits, and it took a lawsuit to compel the White House to "voluntarily" release the names of those who visited after September 2009 to satisfy the transparency promise.

Team Obama used bureaucratic sleight of hand to keep anyone from browsing the lists, forcing inquisitive members of the public to "guess the visitor" on a given day and, only if they guessed correctly, to get the record...........................

Big Sis uses methods designed to catch Al-Qaeda terrorists as tools to silence dissent against big government

Two new videos recently released by the Department of Homeland Security add to the mountain of evidence that proves Big Sis has now dispensed with all pretense of the war on terror being focused on Al-Qaeda Muslims, as tools that were designed to catch foreign terrorists are now being targeted against Americans who are opposed to big government.

The two recent PSAs (watch them below), part of Homeland Security’s “See Something Say Something snitch campaign, portray white middle class Americans as terrorists in almost all of the scenarios shown in the clips.

Sen.

"It's just a good thing I can't pack a gun on the Senate floor," Coburn told a crowd in Langley, Okla., as reported in Wednesday's The Tulsa World.The two-term senator, who has earned the nickname "Dr. No" for his frequent holds on legislation, has never been one to mince words.

Prison Planet.com � IBM unveils chips that mimic the human brain:

IBM has unveiled a new experimental computer chip that it says mimics the human brain in that it perceives, acts and even thinks.

It terms the machines built with these chips “cognitive computers”, claiming that they are able to learn through experience, find patterns, generate ideas and understand the outcomes.

In building this new generation of chip, IBM combined principles of nanoscience, neuroscience and supercomputing.

It has been awarded $21m (�12.7m) of new funding by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for the next phase of the project, which it terms “Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics” (SyNAPSE).

Jose Guerena's Family Sues Pima County Over SWAT Raid Killing


08-17-2011  •  Huffington Post 
Jose Guerena, a 26-year-old Marine and Iraq war veteran, was killed May 5 when a SWAT team broke into his home a little after 9:30 a.m. According to Guerena's wife, Vanessa (who was home at he time, along with their 4-year-old son), Guerena thought the police were home invaders. He ushered his family into a closet, then grabbed a rifle. When the police battered down the door, they saw Guerena and his rifle, and opened fire. The SWAT team released 70 rounds. Guerena didn't fire a shot; the safety of his rifle was still on.

Who – and What – Are Behind the 'Official�History' of the Bin Laden Raid? by Russ Baker

Who – and What – Are Behind the 'Official�History' of the Bin Laden Raid? by Russ Baker:

Article Summary: When you look closely, nothing seems right about what will surely become the accepted account of the raid that nailed America's enemy number one. And then things get even weirder…

The establishment media just keep getting worse. They're further and further from good, tough investigative journalism, and more prone to be pawns in complicated games that affect the public interest in untold ways. A significant recent example is The New Yorker's vaunted August 8 exclusive on the vanquishing of Osama bin Laden.

The piece, trumpeted as the most detailed account to date of the May 1 raid in Abbottabad Pakistan, was an instant hit. “Got the chills half dozen times reading @NewYorker killing bin Laden tick tock…exquisite journalism,” tweeted the digital director of the PBS show Frontline. The author, freelancer Nicholas Schmidle, was quickly featured on the Charlie Rose show, an influential determiner of “chattering class” opinion. Other news outlets rushed to praise the story as “exhaustive,” “utterly compelling,” and on and on.

To be sure, it is the kind of granular, heroic story that the public loves, that generates follow-up bestsellers and movie options. The takedown even has a Hollywood-esque code name: “Operation Neptune's Spear”

News ‘Journalists’ Shill for the State by Scott Lazarowitz

News ‘Journalists’ Shill for the State by Scott Lazarowitz:

It’s bad enough the possibility that there might have been some hanky-panky going on regarding the vote count at the Iowa Straw Poll this week, in which Ron Paul received 4,671 votes to Michele Bachmann’s 4,823, a difference of just 152 votes.

But to see one national media outlet after another completely ignoring Dr. Paul’s virtual tie for the #1 spot, and others who continue to dismiss Paul as "fringe," despite Paul’s being the most mainstream and commonsensical of all the candidates, is amazing.

The shills for the State do not see how obvious they are now. And the shills aren’t just the left-biased news media, but on the right as well. In his loving devotion to the State, Rush Limbaugh said, regarding the GOP’s giving Ron Paul any actual attention, "This is nuts on parade."

Oh, really, Mr. Limbaugh? And whose "Operation Chaos" scheme was it that helped give us the tyrannical President Obama? Hmmm?

"Nuts," indeed.

But America IS A Police State by Steven Greenhut

But America IS A Police State by Steven Greenhut:

Six Fullerton cops, responding to a phone call alleging that someone in the downtown area might be breaking into cars, approached a 130-pound homeless man named Kelly Thomas, grabbed his backpack and, according to eyewitnesses, began Tasering him and beating him into a pulp. He died a few days later at a local hospital.

According to eyewitnesses, Thomas, although schizophrenic, did nothing to warrant arrest, let alone a savage beating. He was a local fixture around the bar scene, a gentle figure who bummed cigarettes and slept in the park. Videos made by bystanders showed pure aggression on the part of the cops, while locals expressed horror and Thomas cried out for his dad as he was being beaten.

In my column about this apparent act of police thuggery, I quoted Jim Ewert, general counsel of the California Newspaper Publishers Association, who calls California a "secret police state." Some readers no doubt find this description to be too much for their tender sensibilities. So I want to recount some of the ways the authorities have behaved during and after the incident, and then ask this question: Does this typical behavior better reflect the policies of a free society or a police state?

1. Officers responded to a nonviolent call with overwhelming violent force.

Prison Planet.com � Republican Voters Are Losing Their Appetite For War:

As presidential candidate Ron Paul builds his campaign around an anti-war message of bringing the troops home from conflicts that the United States can no longer afford to pay for, polls show that Americans, and particularly Republicans, are losing their appetite for war.
Republican Voters Are Losing Their Appetite For War

“Voter confidence about the short-term course of the war in Afghanistan has fallen to its lowest level in nearly two years, while confidence about the direction in Iraq over the next six months has dropped to the lowest point in almost five years of surveying,” according to Rasmussen.

Only 15 per cent of of likely U.S. Voters think the situation in Afghanistan will improve over the next six months, while more voters than ever before – 59 per cent – now want an immediate troop withdrawal or a firm timetable to be set for ending the occupation. Republicans are more pessimistic than Democrats about the future course of operations in both Afghanistan and Iraq.

In Saturday's Iowa straw poll, libertarian GOP candidate Ron Paul nearly emerged victorious, coming within less than one percentage point of the winner, Michele Bachmann. Of course, you'd hardly know it given the media's reporting, which focused on Bachmann's rise and Tim Pawlenty's disappointing third-place finish. The Daily Show even devoted a segment to the near press black-out on Monday night, with Jon Stewart asking "How did libertarian Ron Paul become the 13th floor in a hotel?"

“The Constitution makes it manifestly clear that only Congress has the power to send our young men and women into war,” Kucinich said. “Unfortunately this administration, even though it is headed by a constitutional scholar, now is ignoring the Constitution.”

The desperate globalist-controlled media has failed in their attempt to convince the world that Ron Paul can’t win, and has now turned towards divisive race card tactics in a concerted attempt to destroy his 2012 bid for the presidency.

Unable to simply ignore him, the media has shifted into attacking Ron Paul, even as his GOP rivals attempt to mimic his platform.
