The Story of Obama: All�in�the�Company by Wayne Madsen

The Story of Obama: All�in�the�Company by Wayne Madsen:

Investigative journalist Wayne Madsen has discovered CIA files that document the agency’s connections to institutions and individuals figuring prominently in the lives of Barack Obama and his mother, father, grandmother, and stepfather.

The first part of his report highlights the connections between Barack Obama, Sr. and the CIA-sponsored operations in Kenya to counter rising Soviet and Chinese influence among student circles and, beyond, to create conditions obstructing the emergence of independent African leaders.....

20 Proxy sites to browse the net anonymously

20 Proxy sites to browse the net anonymously:

There are several reasons why you want to browse the internet anonymously. The most common reason is that when you're browsing the net, you'll leave a calling card on every website where you're from, what webbrowser you're using, what computer you use and more details.

For some people this is reason enough to browse the internet hidden under a proxy. These servers will hide your details so that you'll be sure nobody will find out who you are. Additionally, these sites can be used to unblock sites such as MySpace, YouTube and other sites that are blocked on your work / school.

When you use a proxy, the request of the website will not be send to the website directly, but to the proxy. This request is the one with your personal information. The proxy sends your request to the website you want to view, but now uses the information of that proxy server. This simply means that you'll not be directly connected to the website, but the proxy site is. This extra step will make the browsing go slower, but that's all it takes to browse anonymously.....

A new independent analysis of 2012 presidential candidates’ campaign contributions confirms that Mitt Romney is the banksters’ choice for the GOP nominee, and indeed for President.

Records of campaign contributions based on Federal Election Commission data released electronically this past weekend, reveal that Romney’s top 20 donors are made up almost exclusively of the biggest private banks on the planet.

Among Romney’s top twenty donors are Credit Suisse Group, Morgan Stanley, Barclays, Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase & Co, Wells Fargo and Citigroup Inc.

Obama and Democrats Following in Hitler’s Footsteps

Obama and Democrats Following in Hitler’s Footsteps:

How does one assume complete power over a nation?

By getting one group of people in the nation to start hating another group of people and then make the targeted group the rallying point around which all others can focus their hatred and blame.

In the late 1700s, a politician by the name of Maximilien Robespierre was a very articulate member of the left-wing bourgeoisie in France. The French people for the most part lived in poor conditions. Robespierre began to blame the French aristocracy for the squalid lifestyles of the people. The French populace rallied around his hatred of the royals until the nation erupted into what is known as the French Revolution.

Robespierre’s actions also led to the Reign of Terror in which the vast majority of the French aristocracy and wealthy were attacked by the people. Many were beaten to death, others guillotined and yet others imprisoned.

After the French Revolution, much of the people found their living conditions to worse than it was before the revolution.

Gunny G: The Sayonara Marines Camp Fuji, Japan, 1954 and A Swagger Stick Story…. � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL):

My dad was a corporal in 1954 at middle camp At Mt. Fuji, Japan when a fella brought in a broken tent pole. Dad replaced the pole, but then filed off the broken metal pieces. He then had an idea to saw a .50 caliber shell in half and cap the ends of the pole. He sanded and stained and varnished the pole into a fine piece.

He gave this to his commanding officer, Lt. Jesse Altman. Battalion Commander Colonel Frye saw it and wanted one for himself. Lt. Sharp – the Battalion mess officer wanted one, so Dad made on for him and subsequently received permission to straggle to chow. Long story short, every officer at Middle Camp wanted one in 1954 and Dad has long believed that this was the birth of this style of Swagger Stick which is proudly displayed in replica by Marines from that era.

He is now 72, and doesn’t do his own email, but would gladly share his stories by phone with any Marines. He was a corporal in headquarters and service company, 3rd battalion, 3rd regiment, 3rd Marine division 1954 Camp Fuji Japan. His number is.....

Sanctions Imposed on 9/11 Conspiracy Theorists

Sanctions Imposed on 9/11 Conspiracy Theorists:

April Gallop alleged in her initial complaint that a plane did not hit the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, but that a bomb had been detonated instead, and members of the government knew about the attack in advance. The 2nd Circuit in Manhattan upheld a federal judge's dismissal of the case after finding that Gallop had "failed to present anything beyond vague and conclusory allegations of conspiracy."

In the April 2011 ruling, the three-judge panel ordered Gallop and her attorneys to show cause as to why they should not be sanctioned for forcing the court "to consider, and the government to defend, a frivolous and vexatious appeal."

In response, Gallop's attorneys - Dennis Cunningham, Mustapha Ndanusa and William Veale - called for the panel to be disqualified because of "evident severe bias, based in active personal emotions arising from the 9/11 attack."

Michelle Obama: ‘We Start With Kids ... We Can Affect Who They Will Be Forever

Michelle Obama:

‘We Start With Kids ... We Can Affect Who They Will Be Forever: Among the schools Mrs. Obama praised was the Burlington Elementary School of North Dakota, where, she said, the teachers eat two USDA-approved meals a day with the students.

“And the teachers eat breakfast and lunch with students every single day,” said Mrs. Obama. “Now, that's a sacrifice. You know it. That's love. They even send out a monthly newsletter called, “Nutrition Notes,” to provide healthy eating tips and recipes for the families.

“You’re affecting not just how these kids feed themselves, but how they’re going to feed their own children,” she said.....

“So the beauty is, is that you’re not just making this generation of kids healthier, but the next generation as well. And that is truly, truly powerful stuff,” she said.

Mrs. Obama said that the children trained in these schools may have a trickle-down effect on their families.

“They're changing the way they think about their health and they're trickling that information down to their families,” said the First Lady.

Top court rules web links not illegal (Supreme Court of Canada) � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL)

Top court rules web links not illegal (Supreme Court of Canada) � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL):

OTTAWA – Creating an online link to defamatory content created by someone else does not constitute publishing that content.

In a decision that could have chilled the way the Internet works, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that bloggers and Twitter users are not breaking the law by merely linking to another site that contains libelous or defamatory material.

“The Internet, in short, cannot provide access to information without hyperlinks,” wrote Justice Rosalie Abella. “Limiting their usefulness by subjecting them to the traditional publication rule would have the effect of seriously restricting the flow of information and as a result, freedom of expression.”

While the decision was unanimous, two justices warned that framing or endorsing the link as the truth or accurate could still land an Internet linker in court.

“Combined text and hyperlink may amount to publication of defamatory material,” wrote Chief Justice Beverly McLachlin and Justice Morris Fish. “If the text communicates agreement with the content linked to, then the hyperlinker should be liable for the defamatory content.”

The Real DiLorenzo A ‘Southern Partisan’ Interview…. � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL):

I was real interested in the War, and I started thinking about how I could combine my profession with this hobby of mine: the history of the War.

More and more, as I read about Lincoln, I realized he was a tyrant. He was all about money and power. He was the political water-carrier of the Northern big business interests. Of course, he was a centralizer.

I’m sort of a libertarian, although Clyde Wilson would say “Jeffersonian.”

Jeffersonian is pretty much the same thing to me. Most people hear the word “libertarian” and think of people who advocate taking drugs, and that sort of thing. Jeffersonian is more like it.

It really struck me that the War destroyed the Jeffersonian ideal of government. I started writing a few articles about this, and turned it into this book.

Obamas flirt at military event

Obamas flirt at military event:

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama showed some affection in public on Wednesday, making a number of flirtatious remarks at a military event.

“I never get to do anything with my husband. I haven’t seen him in three days. This is a nice date!” the first lady told the crowd at Joint Base Langley Eustis in Hampton, Va., before inviting the president to take the stage.

She added, “You’re lookin’ good!”

In the rare joint appearance, the president was also ready to serenade his wife, beginning his 15-minute speech with, “I hate following Michelle. She’s so good. How lucky am I to be married to Michelle Obama?”

He even had some advice for the single men in the audience. “The whole goal is to marry up. To try to improve your gene pool. And we’re lucky to have her as first lady of the United States, I think,” he said.

Before concluding his speech, the president paid one more tribute to his wife, thanking her and second lady Jill Biden for the work they do for military families and veterans.

“She does all this and she looks cute,” he said.

Back to the Future: DeLorean Plans an Electric Car

Back to the Future: DeLorean Plans an Electric Car:

"Marty, you've got to come back with me! Back to the future!"

It is one of those great bits from film history -- Doc Brown, the mad genius inventor from 1985's "Back to the Future," builds a time machine out of that iconic-but-failed sports car of the early 1980s, the DeLorean DMC-12.

There is still a DeLorean Motor Co. of Humble, Texas, which supplies parts and occasionally builds new cars for DeLorean lovers, and it has now announced a new version -- a DeLorean powered entirely by electricity.

"The car of the future has really become the car of the future," joked James Espey, a vice president at DeLorean, which has about 60 employees.

So far, said Espey, the company has retrofitted one car with an electric motor. If all goes well, he said, the company would start selling built-to-order electric DeLoreans around 2013. The sticker price (if a custom-built car can have a sticker): about $90,000.

The ‘Terrorist’ Who Couldn’t Think Straight by Justin Raimondo

The ‘Terrorist’ Who Couldn’t Think Straight by Justin Raimondo:

The alleged plot was supposed to have been carried out by a member of the Zetas drug cartel, who was to be paid up to $1.5 million to implement the plan. US officials, even while acknowledging the "B-movie" aspect of the story, reportedly "fanned out" to convince our allies the plot was real and – with Congress already demanding new sanctions on Iran – that the economic vise be tightened.

Not only are the more hysterical neocons calling for military action against Iran – no surprise there — but the headlines had the normally staid and relatively reserved Steve Clemons, a prominent Obama shill, babbling that "this is a serious situation" and "the U.S. has reached a point where it must take action," and Sen. Carl Levin calling the plot "an act of war."

Mystery of the West Wing Hole: Is Obama Building a Super-Bunker Under the White House (or Maybe He's Treating Hhimself to a Swimming�Pool?) by Daniel Bates

Mystery of the West Wing Hole:

Is Obama Building a Super-Bunker Under the White House (or Maybe He's Treating Hhimself to a Swimming�Pool?) by Daniel Bates: It is a huge hole in one of the world's most famous gardens – but nobody knows what it is for.

Workmen have torn up an enormous section of the lawn in front of the White House for a mysterious, top secret project.

The hole by the West Wing is roughly 100ft by 100ft in size and has for the first time in living memory left the ground and pipes beneath the Oval office exposed to the elements.

Official explanations have ranged from an update of the air conditioning system to something 'security' related.

But that has not stopped speculation that the President is installing something else entirely – from a swimming pool to a spa.

Others have guessed it could be an expansion of the presidential bunker, which was originally built in the time of Franklin D Roosevelt.

Your Country Is Dying... and It Wants To Take You With It by Jeff Berwick

Your Country Is Dying... and It Wants To Take You With It by Jeff Berwick:


Last year I got a call from an online brokerage I use in Luxembourg called Internaxx. After having had an account with them for a few years they called to let me know they'd be closing my account immediately.

I asked the obvious question: Why??

The lady replied that Internaxx had recently been bought out by a Canadian brokerage, TD Waterhouse, and since I was registered with Internaxx as a Canadian citizen (I was born in Canada and have a Canadian passport) that Canadian laws state that no Canadian stock brokerage can accept a Canadian client when it is operating outside of the country!

So, even though I thought I was safely away from the criminal Canadian Government's rules and regulations in Luxembourg, all it took was for a Canadian company to buy that brokerage and all of a sudden I was persona non grata.

Luckily, and smartly, for me, I have another passport and so I said to the lady, "I am also a citizen of XXX country, could you unregister me as being Canadian and put me down as being from that country?"

He pushed his economic agenda anew to a military audience, this time with first lady Michelle Obama at his side.

"We ask you to fight, to sacrifice, to risk your lives for your country," Obama told an audience of thousands of people at Joint Base Langley-Eustis. "The last thing you should have to do is fight for a job when you come home. Not here. Not in the United States of America."

Prison � Ron Paul Launches ‘Black This Out’ Money Bomb

Prison � Ron Paul Launches ‘Black This Out’ Money Bomb:

Texas Congressman Ron Paul, a Republican presidential candidate, launched his latest money bomb on Wednesday. The “Black This Out” money bomb has raised nearly $700,000 as of 11am EDT.

In a email to his campaign supporters, Paul urged his activists to donate to his campaign. “None of our hard work matters unless I can raise the resources to break through the media blackout and take my message of liberty straight to the voters,” Paul wrote.

Paul relies on grassroots contributions to sustain his campaign. “Unlike my establishment opponents, I can’t hit up Wall Street bankster fat cats for big checks. Nor would I want to,” Paul insisted.

Paul hopes that the success of past money bombs will continue with his “Black This Out” money bomb at the beginning of the 4th quarter of campaign fundraising. Paul’s birthday money bomb raised more than $1.6 million in a 24 hour period, reports The Los Angeles Times.

CNN Debate Fails On 14th Amendment’s Citizenship Clause

CNN Debate Fails On 14th Amendment’s Citizenship Clause:

Anderson Cooper, at one point during Tuesday Night’s CNN Republican Presidential Debate, asked about the opinion of the candidates regarding how the 14th Amendment indicates that all babies born on U.S. Soil are citizens. Then, after Herman Cain and Rick Perry dodged the question, he began asking if the 14th Amendment regarding anchor babies should be repealed.

The premise was wrong, and the candidates, along with Anderson Cooper, showed how little they know about the Citizenship Clause of the 14th Amendment. The fact is, anchor babies are not citizens of the United States, and the 14th Amendment does not guarantee citizenship to babies born on American soil.

When Anderson Cooper, or any of these other mistaken individuals, say that children of illegal aliens born in the United States are American citizens, and that by deporting their parents it splits up families, it is proof that their understanding of the language used in the 14th Amendment is either poor, or they have redefined that language.

The Citizenship Clause of the 14th Amendment reads:

Hotel cancels Tea Party event after learning that anti-Islam activist was due to be a speaker

Hotel cancels Tea Party event after learning that anti-Islam activist was due to be a speaker:

A hotel in Texas cancelled a Tea Party event that was going to be held in their conference room because it didn't approve of the group's keynote speaker. Pamela Geller, a political activist and blogger, was schedule to headline the event and caused hotel representatives to deny the group use of their space.

Officially, the Hyatt Place Houston Sugar Land hotel cancelled the event citing 'changing security needs' after they learned that Ms Geller would be speaking.

This is not the first time that Ms Geller has ruffled feathers: the staunch conservative has written extensively against Islam and regularly attacks the religion because she deems it 'the radical most radical and extreme ideology on the face of the earth'.

'I'm not bashing Muslims. I'm not bashing people. I love people, It's why I do what I do,' Ms Geller said.

In spite of that, the event was forced to move to the Sugar Land Community Center, where it was held Tuesday night

'I think it's reprehensible, the restriction of free speech, because that's what we're talking about,' Ms Geller said.

While event attendees were boycotting the Hyatt, a few dozen residents of Sugar Land, Texas, which is right outside of Houston, boycotted the event, calling it 'hate speech'.

Study Confirms Ron Paul Blacked Out by Media

Study Confirms Ron Paul Blacked Out by Media:

It has oft been a bone of contention by Ron Paul supporters nationwide that he has been either ignored or misrepresented by the mainstream media.

Liberal comedian Jon Stewart devoted an entire montage to humorously and satirically underscoring the media’s deliberate — and at times blatant — efforts to ignore Paul’s top-tier status.

Now a recent study by the highly respected Pew Research Center proves that Paul has indeed been blacked out by the mainstream media. explains that the study “combines traditional media research methods with computer algorithms to track the level and tone of coverage of candidates for president.”

Pew compiled a list of 52 mainstream news sources, ranging from newspapers to television, and discovered that Paul has received significantly less media coverage than all of the other candidates — including Tim Pawlenty, who dropped out of the race as a result of his lack of adequate progress, and Jon Huntsman, who has one of the lowest approval ratings of all the GOP presidential contenders.

Debate: Republicans Agree to Continue Foreign Aid Funding (Except Ron Paul) � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL):

Only Rep. Paul said the nation can no longer afford to borrow money with deficits in order to give taxpayers’ money away.

“Foreign aid, it should be the easiest thing to cut. It’s not authorized in the Constitution,” Paul countered. “To me, foreign aid is taking money from poor people in this country and giving it to rich people in poor countries.”

Paul proposed a budget plan this week that would zero out foreign aid in year one, and cut a total of nearly $1 trillion in the first year of his presidency.

The budget proposal would eliminate five cabinet-level agencies and balance the federal budget within three years without raising taxes.....

Many patriots these days lament that the Republican Party has “lost its way” and “gone wrong.” It has “diverged” from the fiscally responsible, small government philosophy of Republican heroes like Robert Taft whom Eisenhower’s handlers finagled out of the nomination for President in 1952.

We are told that is why today’s Republican Establishment hates Dr. Ron Paul with such a passion; that they hate him because, like Taft, he is the quintessential Republican. Patriots who say that are mistaken, of course. The reason the Republican Establishment hates Dr. Paul is precisely that he is not a traditional, mainstream Republican, that his platform of freedom is an aberration. The Republican Party didn’t “go wrong,” didn’t “go left.”

It has been wrong from the beginning, from the day it was founded. From the beginning, the Republican Party has worked without deviation for bigger, more imperial government, for higher taxes, for more wars, for more totalitarianism. From the beginning, the Republican Party has been Red.....

No Money For Street Lights, Roving Packs Of Wild Dogs And Open-Air Drug Markets:

If you want to know what the early stages of an economic collapse look like, just walk around some of the downtown areas of our major cities.

Today, nearly all large U.S. cities are either flat broke or they are on the way to being flat broke. Yes, New York City and Washington D.C. (and a few others) are still doing fairly well, but for most U.S. cities economic reality is catching up with them very quickly.

Right now, there are a number of major cities that are so broke that they cannot keep the street lights operating. Down in St. Louis, parents in some areas are carrying golf clubs with them as they walk their kids to school in order to fend off roving packs of wild dogs. In other major U.S. cities, open-air drug markets conduct business without fear. All over the United States, cities that used to be clean and prosperous and full of hope are now being transformed into post-industrial wastelands.

We are certainly not in “Mad Max” territory yet, but it doesn’t take too much imagination to see where all of this is headed.....

McCain Wants Panel to Consider Changing Military Retirement Benefits

McCain Wants Panel to Consider Changing Military Retirement Benefits:

The top lawmakers on the Senate's defense panel on Friday recommended that a special committee searching for ways to slash the deficit consider some of President Barack Obama's proposed changes to health and retirement benefits for the military.

In separate letters to the bipartisan panel, Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., chairman of the Armed Services Committee, and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., signaled they were open to cost-saving steps in military benefits, recommendations that have already attracted fierce opposition from powerful groups of retired officers and veterans resistant to change.

The Pentagon's health care costs have skyrocketed from $19 billion in 2001 to $53 billion, but lawmakers and various groups argue that members of the military and their families sacrifice far more than the average American, with a career that includes long and dangerous deployments overseas that overshadow civilian work. Health and retirement benefits help attract service members to the all-volunteer force. Levin and McCain said they would support establishing an annual enrollment fee for TRICARE for Life, the health care program that has no fee for participation. Obama had proposed an initial annual fee of $200.........
