TSA Comes to Lambeau

Wisconsinites everywhere should hang their cheeseheads in shame -
Green Bay Packers fans should arrive early and expect some delays for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos as the team implements heightened security measures for the games at Lambeau Field this season.

The National Football League is pushing for enhanced security, and starting with Sunday's game at Lambeau, all fans will be subject to a hand-held, metal-detecting wand test before being admitted.The procedure would be similar to wand inspections at the airport, but this process would be less invasive than the full-body exam, said Doug Collins, Packers director of security.
The Real Effect
What better place to put this kind of security on display then the home of the Super Bowl Champions?
Of course, we all know that this is more posturing to eliminate the common people's rights but let's be perfectly clear about this.
  1. As a private organization, they have every right to implement these sort of procedures if they would like.
  2. I as a private citizen, have every right to boycott the living daylights out of your organization for doing so.
  3. Let's not be naive about this, the DHS put the NFL up to this.
We turn to 2006 for the rationale -
I will go over this real slowly, so all may understand. If you create a terrorist and then your own 'experts' to testify to the nastiness of this terrorist and then the aforementioned terrorist does something scary, you get billions of dollars in funding and tons more control over a populace. I believe that it is the oldest trick in the book.

Watch for the story to die down, yet the call to "vigilance" and "protection" grows while pushing the conclusion of the story aside. And all it takes to solidify it in your mind, is one terrorist attack that they tell you is from the "terrorist" and liberty becomes a forethought reserved for the annals of history.

And when will it go away? When the money runs out -
Searching people at the borders and prosecuting criminals will reduce crime and terrorism. It will actually work. This reduces the need for expensive and invasive systems such as the TSA, Highway Watch and citizen watch programs. This makes less money for the bureaucrats and politicians and erodes their power base. Where would the pay raise in that be? No this is typical problem-reaction-solution fear mongering in an attempt to strip the Republic and it's good people of their rights.

Stick a Fork In Perry, Here Come's the Non-Starter Cain Again

The 'Anyone But Paul' Party marches on -
Texas Gov. Rick Perry has tumbled among GOP primary voters and now trails business executive Herman Cain in the race for the nomination, according to the latest IBOPE Zogby Poll. Cain's campaign appears to have picked up steam after a win in Florida's Straw Poll this weekend, while Perry continues to suffer from lackluster performances in GOP debates, the most recent held last Thursday in Orlando. Perry, at 18 percent, has tumbled by more than 20 percentage points over the past month, according to IBOPE Zogby numbers and is now second to Herman Cain, who leads the field with 28 percent.
The Real Effect
I don't know what the GOP thinks is going to happen if Paul gets elected, the man has demonstrated consistently that he supports the values that they claim to uphold. Of course, this sort of election should suffice to show that it is about maintaining power not implementing the platitudes that one offers the masses when running for public office. Fraud anyone?

Naturally, the White Elephants are absolutely paralyzed at the thought of not spending trillions of dollars invading other nations they don't even represent perhaps in part because they know what kind of karmic payback the United States is due. Of course, we remember who is supporting these intellectual and fiscal failures -

  • Neocon - Primarily baby boomer and older - This group is obsessed with "preserving" things the way they are. This is evidenced in their continual support for anything that sounds like old fashioned Americana. (Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, zoning, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, etc...) They have predicated most of their worldview into a belief that they are the greatest generation. They created American prosperity, American superiority and the American Dream darn it! They have spent a good portion of their lives stealing from others, therefore they rightly fear the wave of reciprocity that is coming.
 These positions are unsustainable. Period. The math demonstrates it and the country is now confirming it and unless we want to sell our souls to the Dark Prince, we need to repent of our mercantile ways and return this country to a sound judicial standing on private property.

Perry Shows His Blue Side

'Won't someone please think of the children!' Bush III cries -
During Thursday night's Republican presidential debate, Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum all took shots at Rick Perry's record on illegal immigration. Bachmann said that Texas's law allowing in-state tuition for the children of illegal immigrants acted like a "magnet" for illegal immigrants. Perry's response was forceful and personal. "I don't think you have a heart," Perry told his critics.
The Real Effect
Don't you just love how generous he is, with your money? This is the basis for the quintessential argument that needs to happen in this country simply because it underlies every problem that we are dealing with socially. Let us explain the situation with a formula.

Citizens * Cost = Expense

If there are 30,000 citizens being educated at $10 each, that equal $300,000. Do a little spreading of the cost among your 300,000 citizens in your area and we're talking $1 each. Not too shabby. Now let's introduce Perry's formula.

Citizens + Immigrants * Cost = Expense

If there are 30,000 citizens being educated at $10 each PLUS 2,000 illegal immigrants that equal $320,000. Spreading of the cost among your 300,000 citizens in your area and we're now talking $1.07 each. A 7% increase in cost that is being carried predominantly by the citizens. Now add on welfare, food stamps and other factors and that cost quickly goes from 7% to more like 30%.

This is the heart of the matter facing America. True, a healthy system can support some mooching. But a parasite that continues to grow will eventually kill the host. In this country we have spent via credit card at the local, State and Federal level as well as personally and now the bills are due.

Perry needs to recognize that the gravy train for all people in this country needs to stop and this has nothing to do with empathy, but just plain common sense.

A Turning of the Tide

In June of 2009 I posted the following -
This is not a recession, it is a depression. And a massive one at that. We are not at the bottom, we are on gaining momentum for the next plunge down. If you thought the last drop was bad, this one is going to strike fear into the hearts of men everywhere. The Dow will push through the last market low of 7,392.27, then 6000 and after that 3000. As capitol assets are ravished, what you will be seeing is the consumption of the golden goose in a proverbial feasting on the rotting carcass of the American consumer. If you disagree, ask yourself the following, what is holding US up?
The analogy that was being invoked at this point was that of a roller coaster as the economy/statistics, fresh off a major plunge was going back up. Seldom is it the case that any institution or country falls straight into the abyss, rather it is usually the case that man sees fit to desperately try to save his sorry hide from the onslaught that is sure to follow. So it is with the United States.

In 2008., after years of warnings from professors, experts and what was then regarded as complete lunatics, the economy collapsed. (Or more properly, the sham that we thought was our economy collapsed having been long replaced with a mercantile paradise. )

In 2005, nearly SIX years ago and THREE years before the "crisis" -
Now I don't believe that it takes a genius to figure out that the housing market will at least temporarily collapse...
....we will begin to see many people selling off properties in an attempt to capitalize on unrealistically high housing prices. After all, if you can't afford to heat one house, can you afford to heat two?

I strongly believe this will lead to a panicked sell-a-thon which will flood the market with overpriced housing, driving the prices down to at least pre-bubble levels. This will leave many holding large outstanding debts as much of their investment's value plummets.
In July of 2008, I warned that the banks were in massive amounts of trouble, once again jumping ahead of the crisis by an incredible 3 months -
The bleeding is worsening as the globalists loot the American people of everything. Pensions are starting to disappear, savings are gone, debt is piling on and the elite are laughing. After all, you got your "stimulus" check right?
This is going to get much worse everyone with a domino effect knocking off many long-standing institutions as they become "Federal".
Back then, who would have thought the Federal government would have tried to nationalize much of anything let alone some of the biggest entities in the world.

Austerity In the Form of Tax Increases Comes to America

You owe money, don'tcha know? -
In a blunt rejoinder to congressional Republicans, President Barack Obama called for $1.5 trillion in new taxes Monday, part of a total 10-year deficit reduction package totaling more than $3 trillion. He vowed to veto any deficit reduction package that cuts benefits to Medicare recipients but does not raise taxes on the wealthy and big corporations.

"We can't just cut our way out of this hole," the president said.

The president's proposal would predominantly hit upper income taxpayers but would also reduce spending in mandatory benefit programs, including Medicare and Medicaid, by $580 billion. It also counts savings of $1 trillion over 10 years from the withdrawal of troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Real Effect
Think this through for a moment. Who owes this debt? The United States of America, a Federal construct of the individual sovereign states. What or who is the Federal Government? It is an abstract concept that has no individual backing rather then the wealth citizens of the United States. So what is this "debt" secured against? (In other words, who owes the debt again?) Why the material possessions of it's citizens of course, namely you and I. You could have literally been born yesterday, get none of these benefits in the future and yet still owe hundreds of thousands to the Federal Government.

In this case, Obama is invoking class warfare to claim that this situation is unfair. The problem with this thinking is two-fold and quite problematic. 1) Life by it's very nature is unfair and hundreds of years of communistic balancing has done nothing but slaughter people to "fix" this situation. It is a failed ideology that just keeps trying. 2) The Republicans have a real problem on their hands with this. You have people that are being devastatingly being priced out of their basic subsistence via various Federal Reserve programs that steal their wealth and hand it over to certain hedge funds and banks to "prop" them up. This is theft most foul and the people know it. The people don't want to save the banks, they want to see the banksters hang and the Republicans are oblivious to this point. Getting behind the banks is like standing behind the rapist because he'll lose his job

So all of this creates this murky perception that 'anyone making over X dollars (Let's say $1 million), are the ones that did this to us!'  While it is true that there are some that are part of that subset that are guilty of these crimes, not all are and to impose such tax increases assumes that the debt is valid and that we have to pay it. This is literally a mathematical impossibility as the amount of outstanding derivatives contracts and "value" inherit in these positions is enough to wipe out the world economy several times over.

The banksters must be wiped out financially. Then and only then will the citizens see their wealth preserved and start to see a turn towards financial prosperity.

Government Inept at Catching "Terrorists"

From The Market Ticker -

Dear Fellow Libertarian,
Who is she?  She's a suburban housewife from Ohio who was flying to Detroit. 
A SWAT team stormed her plane as it sat in a remote part of Detroit airport, where she was removed by them along with two indian nationals she did not know who sat next to her.  She was interrogated, strip-searched, and eventually released without charges because the flight crew thought she demonstrated "suspicious" behavior.  According to the news, during the flight, one of the other two indian men went to the bathroom, took a long time, and the other got up to wait outside.  Shoshana remained seated.  For the aircrew, that was the clincher.
According to Frontier Airlines, an F16 shadowed the airliner ready to shoot it down.
"Who cares?", you may ask.  Better safe than sorry.  This is just another day in the battle against Al-Queda, dontcha know.  Besides, there must be more to it than what we hear in the news.
I don't like encouraging paranoia, and this is paranoia writ with the power of government behind it.  
Out system of law grew from the tradition of stopping this kind of mindless, lawless interference in our lives, but now it seems that doesn't matter at all.  
Think about what happened to this woman, and the two foreign men next to her. 
For no discernable criminal behavior, she ran afoul of the system.  You might say she was considered guilty until proven innocent. 
Just to get on the plane, by law, she, and all her fellow passengers, had to get permission from the DHS.   She was searched before boarding the plane.
She was not ever informed of what she was being "detained" (arrested) for, and she was not secure in her papers and effects.
Her fellow passengers had to watch, and cower, as a SWAT team did the risky business of removing her from the plane at gunpoint. 
An airliner with hundreds of people ran a greatly heightened risk of one of our jets accidentally shooting it down.
She had her clothing forcibly removed, and yet many of her fellow citizens throughout the USA think it's perfectly alright to be strip searched by a government agent without cause.
Her name will forever be in the "terrorism watch list."
As terrifying as this experience was for all involved, a lot of these same citizens rationalize the crushing of her individual rights with the thought the government must have secret info the rest of us don't know about.  To them, this is both OK and justifies their actions.  
Worse yet, the vast majority of people are completely convinced this will never happen to them, so it the abuse of this one person doesn't matter.
And think of the money wasted for the airline delays, the fighter jet, and the SWAT team.
Is this the way we want to live?
For my part, I'm going to make it a special point to never use Frontier Airlines again, that is, if I ever get back on board an airliner.  
I'm also going to remember Ms. Hebshi's name.  It reminds me that this is all real, and not just some paranoid fantasy.
And my list of names is getting longer every day.
Ed: Pete Blome is the chair of the Okaloosa County Libertarian Party in Florida.

Behold - Global TARP!

This is exactly what got the EU into trouble in the first place -

ECB Announcement:
15 September 2011 - ECB announces additional US dollar liquidity-providing operations over year-end The Governing Council of the European Central Bank (ECB) has decided, in coordination with the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan and the Swiss National Bank, to conduct three US dollar liquidity-providing operations with a maturity of approximately three months covering the end of the year. These operations will be conducted in addition to the ongoing weekly seven-day operations announced on 10 May 2010. The schedule for these additional operations is as follows:
Tender date Settlement date Maturity date
12 October 2011 13 October 2011 5 January 2012
9 November 2011 10 November 2011 2 February 2012
7 December 2011 8 December 2011 1 March 201
These will all take the form of repurchase operations against eligible collateral and will be carried out as fixed rate tender procedures with full allotment. Further information on tender procedures can be found on the ECB’s website.
The Real Effect
Remember the talk of garbage assets back in 2008? The initial solution to that issue was essentially a dilution concept in which funds were taken from one group and spread around to "stabilize" another group. This would lead to a better 'capitalized' institution which then wouldn't 'fail'. The problem with this sort of concept is that it doesn't dilute the problem and then the issue evaporates. Rather, the aid is consumed by the troubled assets which begets more troubled assets from the inherent moral hazard. Put simply, you give a shark a meal and he'll go away for a bit, but he's coming back for more later and he will have grown exponentially.

In 2007, the facade on many institutions began to crumble which led to the collapse of the image of solvent banks in 2008. (In truth, the institutions were already long since insolvent it's just that the market finally caught up with their shenanigans and called them on it.) The beginning of 2009 saw the bottom of the first collapse as government fed the shark everything that wasn't nailed down in an attempt to appease it. True to form, the image improved for a time but in 2010, the shark showed up in Europe.

For the last year and a half, the EU has thrown everything they have at the problem and yet, it just keeps getting worse. This in turn has led to the destabilization of myriads of political institutions across the planet and will eventually lead to a global war as the sharks pit man against man in an attempt to eat the entire planet.

Europe Implodes Under Its Own Weight

Stick a fork in Europe, for now -
The eurozone crisis could wreck the European Union, top EU officials warned on Wednesday as the leaders of Germany and France held talks with Greece to avoid a default and widespread chaos.

The pressure rose on all fronts with United States again expressing great concern, with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner saying European states "now recognise they are going to have to do more" to resolve to the crisis.

Highlighting the threat to the global economy, Geithner is to exceptionally attend talks between European Union finance ministers and central bankers in Poland on Friday.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou were to hold a teleconference late Wednesday as markets price in a default by the government in Athens, and credit rating giant Moody's downgraded two major French banks given their exposure to Greek debt.

"Europe is in danger," Polish Finance Minister Jacek Rostowski, whose country currently chairs EU meetings, told the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

"If the eurozone breaks up, the European Union will not be able to survive," he added.

Police Thug Kills Child

Sending children to public school can be deadly -
A 14-year-old boy got into a fight at a school bus stop and the school district's police officer responded by shooting him to death, the boy's mother says in Federal Court. She says the cop had been reprimanded 16 times in the previous 4 years, suspended without pay 5 times, and "recommended for termination for insubordination," but the school kept him on the force "without remedial training."
 Now how could that happen?
"Defendant, Alvarado, having responded to a call regarding a bus with a flat tire, witnessed Derek strike the other boy. He ordered Derek to 'freeze.' Derek hesitated and then ran from defendant Alvarado," according to the complaint.
"In his patrol car, Alvarado began chasing Derek in the neighborhood across the street from the high school. Alvarado lost sight of the boy in the neighborhood and returned to the location of the school boy fight. At that time, he called dispatch. Dispatch recordings reflect that his supervisor directed Alvarado to stay with the other boy and to 'not do any big search over there.'
"Ignoring his supervisor's orders to 'stay with the victim and get the information from him,' Alvarado placed the second boy into the patrol car and sped into the neighborhood to search for Derek."
Lopez says her son jumped over a fence and hid in a shed in the back yard of a house. The homeowner saw him, called 911, and alerted a neighbor, who pointed Alvarado in Derek's direction. Lopez says her son never left the shed, never approached the house or threatened the homeowner or her daughters, and posed no threat to anyone.
Nonetheless, she says: "In violation of NISD police department procedures, Alvarado drew his weapon immediately after exiting the patrol car. With his gun drawn, he rushed through the gate and into the back yard. Within seconds from arriving at the residence, Alvarado shot and killed the unarmed boy hiding in the shed."
The Real Effect
I can sympathize with the police, I really can, but there is a large transition from Peace Officer to Law Enforcement to Gestapo Thug and the jack booted posse shows little inclination to choose the first option. The idea is predicated upon a peaceful exchange of wares and life with other individuals with minimal interference from the officers dressed in black. The second takes on the guise of a forceful reconstruction of society to some set of moral norms for some sort of benefit. The final option is usually a one sided construct to funnel material and other benefits to an elite class. Not part of the elite? Then you're part of the problem.

Pentagon Confirms U.S. Boots on the Ground in Libya

Like there was any doubt that this was going to happen -
Despite repeated assurances from President Obama and military leaders that the U.S. would not send uniformed military personnel into Libya, four U.S. service members arrived on the ground in Tripoli over the weekend.

According to Pentagon spokesman Capt. John Kirby, the four unidentified troops are there working under the State Department's chief of mission to assist in rebuilding the U.S. Embassy.
But, but...these aren't boots on the ground, they wear Nikes!
The Real Effect
And now, to address the gullible among us, let's refer to the beginning of the war in March -
The ground invasion will commence as soon as the air war fails to secure the ever evasive non-goal of oil sccurity, regime change, no flying or killing rebels. Of course, as previously stated, the Neocons are salivating over yet another pointless war that gives us the wonderful opportunity to have a dramatic Al-Quaeda face turn in true WWE style. 
Despite repeated protests from both liberal and conservative pundits and supporters alike that they only wanted to bring Democracy to these pawr, pawr people we have the inevitable conclusion to the madness that grips our country.

But, but you's only 4 armed advisers to help rebuild the embassy. While this myopic fact may be true, taken with the history of a certain Asian region and it's stellar success with advisers, we shall see how that group fares. Yet, if we dig just a little further in the article, we uncover the true reach of this boondoggle -
Since then, U.S. officials speaking on the condition of anonymity have acknowledged the CIA has had a small number of so-called "spotters" on the ground to assist in the NATO mission. It's also well known that other foreign governments have sent special operations forces to fight on the ground with the rebels.
Now where did I hear that before. Oh yeah, I remember -
The source stated that additional Special Forces are headed to Libya in July, with the 1st Calvary Division (heavy armor) and three corps deploying in late October and early November. Initial numbers are estimated at 12,000 active forces and another 15,000 in support, totaling nearly 30,000 troops. 
Look for the previously under control situation to deteriorate as Ghadaffi's people begin to fight, uh, his people? (I don't know, what do you call an imported rebel squad?) Even if he is captured, the civil war will flare as rebels attack non-rebels and the world finds itself unsure of just how to fix this mess. This will lead the call to bring in a permanent transitory peace force to help repress rebuild.

Highly Credible People Question 9/11

Sunday, September 11, 2011
The following people question the government’s version of 9/11, or the government’s openness in providing information about the September 11 attacks.

The co-chairs of the 9/11 Commission (Thomas Keane and Lee Hamilton) said that the CIA (and likely the White House) “obstructed our investigation”.
The co-chairs of the 9/11 Commission also said that the 9/11 Commissioners knew that military officials misrepresented the facts to the Commission, and the Commission considered recommending criminal charges for such false statements, yet didn’t bother to tell the American people (free subscription required).
Indeed, the co-chairs of the Commission now admit that the Commission largely operated based upon political considerations.
9/11 Commission co-chair Lee Hamilton says “I don’t believe for a minute we got everything right”, that the Commission was set up to fail, that people should keep asking questions about 9/11, that the 9/11 debate should continue, and that the 9/11 Commission report was only “the first draft” of history.
9/11 Commissioner Bob Kerrey said that “There are ample reasons to suspect that there may be some alternative to what we outlined in our version . . . We didn’t have access . . . .”
9/11 Commissioner Timothy Roemer said “We were extremely frustrated with the false statements we were getting”
Former 9/11 Commissioner Max Cleland resigned from the Commission, stating: “It is a national scandal”; “This investigation is now compromised”; and “One of these days we will have to get the full story because the 9-11 issue is so important to America. But this White House wants to cover it up”.
9/11 Commissioner John Lehman said that “We purposely put together a staff that had – in a way – conflicts of interest“.
The Senior Counsel to the 9/11 Commission (John Farmer) who led the 9/11 staff’s inquiry, said “I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described …. The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years…. This is not spin. This is not true.”
According to the Co-Chair of the Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 and former Head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Bob Graham, a U.S. government informant was the landlord to two of the hijackers for over a year (but the White House refused to let the 9/11 inquiry interview him).
Current U.S. Senator (Patrick Leahy) states “The two questions that the congress will not ask . . . is why did 9/11 happen on George Bush’s watch when he had clear warnings that it was going to happen? Why did they allow it to happen?”
Current Republican Congressman (Ron Paul) calls for a new 9/11 investigation and states that “we see the [9/11] investigations that have been done so far as more or less cover-up and no real explanation of what went on”
Current Democratic Congressman (Dennis Kucinich) hints that we aren’t being told the truth about 9/11
Former Democratic Senator (Mike Gravel) states that he supports a new 9/11 investigation and that we don’t know the truth about 9/11
Former Republican Senator (Lincoln Chaffee) endorses a new 9/11 investigation
Former U.S. Democratic Congressman (Dan Hamburg) says that the U.S. government “assisted” in the 9/11 attacks, stating that “I think there was a lot of help from the inside”
Former U.S. Republican Congressman and senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, and who served six years as the Chairman of the Military Research and Development Subcommittee (Curt Weldon) has shown that the U.S. tracked hijackers before 9/11, is open to hearing information about explosives in the Twin Towers, and is open to the possibility that 9/11 was an inside job
Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense under President Ronald Reagan (Col. Ronald D. Ray) said that the official story of 9/11 is “the dog that doesn’t hunt” (bio)
Director of the U.S. “Star Wars” space defense program in both Republican and Democratic administrations, who was a senior air force colonel who flew 101 combat missions (Col. Robert Bowman) stated that 9/11 was an inside job. He also said:
If our government had merely [done] nothing, and I say that as an old interceptor pilot-I know the drill, I know what it takes, I know how long it takes, I know what the procedures are, I know what they were, and I know what they’ve changed them to-if our government had merely done nothing, and allowed normal procedures to happen on that morning of 9/11, the Twin Towers would still be standing and thousands of dead Americans would still be alive. [T]hat is treason!
U.S. Army Air Defense Officer and NORAD Tac Director, decorated with the Purple Heart, the Bronze Star and the Soldiers Medal (Capt. Daniel Davis) stated:
“there is no way that an aircraft . . . would not be intercepted when they deviate from their flight plan, turn off their transponders, or stop communication with Air Traffic Control … Attempts to obscure facts by calling them a ‘conspiracy Theory’ does not change the truth. It seems, ‘Something is rotten in the State.’ “
President of the U.S. Air Force Accident Investigation Board, who also served as Pentagon Weapons Requirement Officer and as a member of the Pentagon’s Quadrennial Defense Review, and who was awarded Distinguished Flying Crosses for Heroism, four Air Medals, four Meritorious Service Medals, and nine Aerial Achievement Medals (Lt. Col. Jeff Latas) is a member of a group which doubts the government’s version of 9/11
U.S. General, Commanding General of U.S. European Command and Supreme Allied Commander Europe, decorated with the Bronze Star, Silver Star, and Purple Heart (General Wesley Clark) said “We’ve never finished the investigation of 9/11 and whether the administration actually misused the intelligence information it had. The evidence seems pretty clear to me. I’ve seen that for a long time.”
Air Force Colonel and key Pentagon official (Lt. Colonel Karen Kwiatkowski) finds various aspects of 9/11 suspicious
Lieutenant colonel, 24-year Air Force career, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs at the Defense Language Institute (Lt. Colonel Steve Butler) said “Of course Bush knew about the impending attacks on America. He did nothing to warn the American people because he needed this war on terrorism.”
Two-Star general (Major General Albert Stubbelbine) questions the attack on the Pentagon
U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, former instructor at the USAF Fighter Weapons School and NATO’s Tactical Leadership Program, with a 20-year Air Force career (Lt. Colonel Guy S. Razer) said the following:
“I am 100% convinced that the attacks of September 11, 2001 were planned, organized, and committed by treasonous perpetrators that have infiltrated the highest levels of our government ….
Those of us in the military took an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic”. Just because we have retired does not make that oath invalid, so it is not just our responsibility, it is our duty to expose the real perpetrators of 9/11 and bring them to justice, no matter how hard it is, how long it takes, or how much we have to suffer to do it.
We owe it to those who have gone before us who executed that same oath, and who are doing the same thing in Iraq and Afghanistan right now. Those of us who joined the military and faithfully executed orders that were given us had to trust our leaders. The violation and abuse of that trust is not only heinous, but ultimately the most accurate definition of treason!”
U.S. Marine Corps lieutenant colonel, a fighter pilot with over 300 combat missions flown and a 21-year Marine Corps career (Lt. Colonel Shelton F. Lankford) believes that 9/11 was an inside job, and said:
“This isn’t about party, it isn’t about Bush Bashing. It’s about our country, our constitution, and our future. …
Your countrymen have been murdered and the more you delve into it the more it looks as though they were murdered by our government, who used it as an excuse to murder other people thousands of miles away.
If you ridicule others who have sincere doubts and who know factual information that directly contradicts the official report and who want explanations from those who hold the keys to our government, and have motive, means, and opportunity to pull off a 9/11, but you are too lazy or fearful, or … to check into the facts yourself, what does that make you? ….
Are you afraid that you will learn the truth and you can’t handle it? …”
U.S. Navy ‘Top Gun’ pilot (Commander Ralph Kolstad) who questions the official account of 9/11 and is calling for a new investigation, says “When one starts using his own mind, and not what one was told, there is very little to believe in the official story”.
The Group Director on matters of national security in the U.S. Government Accountability Office said that President Bush did not respond to unprecedented warnings of the 9/11 disaster and conducted a massive cover-up instead of accepting responsibility
Additionally, numerous military leaders from allied governments have questioned 9/11, such as:
Canadian Minister of Defense, the top military leader of Canada (Paul Hellyer)
Assistant German Defense Minister (Andreas Von Bulow)
Commander-in-chief of the Russian Navy (Anatoli Kornukov)
Chief of staff of the Russian armed forces (General Leonid Ivashov)


Former military analyst and famed whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg recently said that the case of a certain 9/11 whistleblower is “far more explosive than the Pentagon Papers“. He also said that the government is ordering the media to cover up her allegations about 9/11. And he said that some of the claims concerning government involvement in 9/11 are credible, that “very serious questions have been raised about what they [U.S. government officials] knew beforehand and how much involvement there might have been”, that engineering 9/11 would not be humanly or psychologically beyond the scope of the current administration, and that there’s enough evidence to justify a new, “hard-hitting” investigation into 9/11 with subpoenas and testimony taken under oath.
A 27-year CIA veteran, who chaired National Intelligence Estimates and personally delivered intelligence briefings to Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, their Vice Presidents, Secretaries of State, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and many other senior government officials (Raymond McGovern) said “I think at simplest terms, there’s a cover-up. The 9/11 Report is a joke”, and is open to the possibility that 9/11 was an inside job.
A 29-year CIA veteran, former National Intelligence Officer (NIO) and former Director of the CIA’s Office of Regional and Political Analysis (William Bill Christison) said “I now think there is persuasive evidence that the events of September did not unfold as the Bush administration and the 9/11 Commission would have us believe. … All three [buildings that were destroyed in the World Trade Center] were most probably destroyed by controlled demolition charges placed in the buildings before 9/11.” (and see this).
20-year Marine Corps infantry and intelligence officer, the second-ranking civilian in U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence, and former CIA clandestine services case officer (David Steele) stated that “9/11 was at a minimum allowed to happen as a pretext for war”, and it was probably an inside job (see Customer Review dated October 7, 2006).
A decorated 20-year CIA veteran, who Pulitzer-Prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh called “perhaps the best on-the-ground field officer in the Middle East”, and whose astounding career formed the script for the Academy Award winning motion picture Syriana (Robert Baer) said that“the evidence points at” 9/11 having had aspects of being an inside job .
The Division Chief of the CIA’s Office of Soviet Affairs, who served as Senior Analyst from 1966 – 1990. He also served as Professor of International Security at the National War College from 1986 – 2004 (Melvin Goodman) said “The final [9/11 Commission] report is ultimately a coverup.”
Professor of History and International Relations, University of Maryland. Former Executive Assistant to the Director of the National Security Agency, former military attaché in China, with a 21-year career in U.S. Army Intelligence (Major John M. Newman, PhD, U.S. Army) questions the government’s version of the events of 9/11.
The head of all U.S. intelligence, the Director of National Intelligence (Mike McConnel) said “9/11 should have and could have been prevented”
A number of intelligence officials, including a CIA Operations Officer who co-chaired a CIA multi-agency task force coordinating intelligence efforts among many intelligence and law enforcement agencies (Lynne Larkin) sent a joint letter to Congress expressing their concerns about “serious shortcomings,” “omissions,” and “major flaws” in the 9/11 Commission Report and offering their services for a new investigation (they were ignored).
A prominent physicist with 33 years of service for the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC (Dr. David L. Griscom) said that the official theory for why the Twin Towers and world trade center building 7 collapsed “does not match the available facts” and supports the theory that the buildings were brought down by controlled demolition
A world-renowned scientist, recipient of the National Medal of Science, America’s highest honor for scientific achievement (Dr. Lynn Margulis) said:
I suggest that those of us aware and concerned demand that the glaringly erroneous official account of 9/11 be dismissed as a fraud and a new, thorough, and impartial investigation be undertaken.
The former head of the Fire Science Division of the government agency which claims that the World Trade Centers collapsed due to fire (the National Institute of Standards and Technology), who is one of the world’s leading fire science researchers and safety engineers, a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering (Dr. James Quintiere), called for an independent review of the World Trade Center Twin Tower collapse investigation. “I wish that there would be a peer review of this,” he said, referring to the NIST investigation. “I think all the records that NIST has assembled should be archived. I would really like to see someone else take a look at what they’ve done; both structurally and from a fire point of view. … I think the official conclusion that NIST arrived at is questionable.”
The principal electrical engineer for the entire World Trade Center complex, who was “very familiar with the structures and [the Twin Towers'] conceptual design parameters” (Richard F. Humenn), stated that “the mass and strength of the structure should have survived the localized damage caused by the planes and burning jet fuel . . . . the fuel and planes alone did not bring the Towers down.”
Former Director for Research, Director for Aeronautical Projects, and Flight Research Program Manager for NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center, who holds masters degrees in both physics and engineering (Dwain A. Deets) says:
The many visual images (massive structural members being hurled horizontally, huge pyroclastic clouds, etc.) leave no doubt in my mind explosives were involved [in the destruction of the World Trade Centers on 9/11].”
A prominent physicist, former U.S. professor of physics from a top university, and a former principal investigator for the U.S. Department of Energy, Division of Advanced Energy Projects (Dr. Steven E. Jones) stated that the world trade centers were brought down by controlled demolition
A U.S. physics professor who teaches at several universities (Dr. Crockett Grabbe) believes that the World Trade Centers were brought down by controlled demolition
An expert on demolition (Bent Lund) said that the trade centers were brought down with explosives (in Danish)
A Dutch demolition expert (Danny Jowenko) stated that WTC 7 was imploded
A safety engineer and accident analyst for the Finnish National Safety Technology Authority (Dr. Heikki Kurttila) stated regarding WTC 7 that “The great speed of the collapse and the low value of the resistance factor strongly suggest controlled demolition.”
A 13-year professor of metallurgical engineering at a U.S. university, with a PhD in materials engineering, a former Congressional Office of Technology Assessment Senior Staff Member (Dr. Joel S. Hirschhorn), is calling for a new investigation of 9/11
A Danish professor of chemistry (Dr. Niels Harrit) said, in a mainstream Danish newspaper, “WTC7 collapsed exactly like a house of cards. If the fires or damage in one corner had played a decisive role, the building would have fallen in that direction. You don’t have to be a woodcutter to grasp this” (translated)
A former guidance systems engineer for Polaris and Trident missiles and professor emeritus, mathematics and computer science at a university concluded (Dr. Bruce R. Henry) that the Twin Towers “were brought down by planted explosives.”
A mechanical engineer with 20 years experience as a Fire Protection Engineer for the U.S. Departments of Energy, Defense, and Veterans Affairs, who is a contributing Subject Matter Expert to the U.S. Department of Energy Fire Protection Engineering Functional Area Qualification Standard for Nuclear Facilities, a board member of the Northern California – Nevada Chapter of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers, currently serving as Fire Protection Engineer for the city of San Jose, California, the 10th largest city in the United States (Edward S. Munyak) believes that the World Trade Center was destroyed by controlled demolition.
The former Chief of the Strategic and Emergency Planning Branch, U.S. Department of Energy, and former Director of the Office of Engineering at the Public Service Commission in Washington, D.C., who is a mechanical engineer (Enver Masud) , does not believe the official story, and believes that there is a prima facie case for controlled demolition of the World Trade Center.
A professor of mathematics (Gary Welz) said “The official explanation that I’ve heard doesn’t make sense because it doesn’t explain why I heard and felt an explosion before the South Tower fell and why the concrete was pulverized”
A prominent engineer with 55 years experience, in charge of the design of hundreds of major building projects including high rise offices, former member of the California Seismic Safety Commission and former member of the National Institute of Sciences Building Safety Council (Marx Ayres) believes that the World Trade Centers were brought down by controlled demolition (see also this)
Two professors of structural engineering at a prestigious Swiss university (Dr. Joerg Schneider and Dr. Hugo Bachmann) said that, on 9/11, World Trade Center 7 was brought down by controlled demolition (translation here)

An architect, member of the American Institute of Architects, who has been a practicing architect for 20 years and has been responsible for the production of construction documents for numerous steel-framed and fire-protected buildings for uses in many different areas, including education, civic, rapid transit and industrial use (Richard Gage) disputes the claim that fire and airplane damage brought down the World Trade Centers and believes there is strong evidence of controlled demolition (many other architects who question 9/11 are listed here)

Former Instructor of Criminal Trial Practice, Boalt Hall School of Law, University of California at Berkeley 11-year teaching career. Retired Chief Assistant Public Defender, Contra Costa County, California 31-year career (William Veale) said:
“When you grow up in the United States, there are some bedrock principles that require concerted effort to discard. One is the simplest: that our leaders are good and decent people whose efforts may occasionally warrant criticism but never because of malice or venality… But one grows up. … And with the lawyer’s training comes the reliance on evidence and the facts that persuade… After a lot of reading, thought, study, and commiseration, I have come to the conclusion that the attacks of 9/11 were, in their essence, an inside job perpetrated at the highest levels of the U S government.”
A common criticism of those who question 9/11 is that they are being “disrespectful to the victims and their families”.
However, half of the victim’s families believe that 9/11 was an inside job (according to the head of the largest 9/11 family group, Bill Doyle) (and listen to this interview). Many family and friends of victims not only support the search for 9/11 truth, but they demand it (please ignore the partisan tone). See also this interview.
Indeed, it has now become so clear that the 9/11 Commission was a whitewash that the same 9/11 widows who called for the creation of the 9/11 Commission are now demanding a NEW investigation (see also this video).
And dying heroes, soon-to-be victims themselves, the first responders who worked tirelessly to save lives on and after 9/11, say that controlled demolition brought down the Twin Towers and that a real investigation is necessary.


Finally, those who attack people who question the government’s version of 9/11 as “crazy” may wish to review the list of mental health professionals who have concluded that the official version of 9/11 is false:
Psychiatrist Carol S. Wolman, MD
Psychiatrist E. Martin Schotz
Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Duke University Medical Center, as well as Radiology, at Duke University Medical Center D. Lawrence Burk, Jr., MD
Board of Governors Distinguished Service Professor of Psychology and Associate Dean of the Graduate School at Ruters University Barry R. Komisaruk
Professor of Psychology at University of New Hampshire William Woodward
Professor of Psychology at University of Essex Philip Cozzolino
Professor of Psychology at Goddard College Catherine Lowther
Professor Emeritus of Psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies Ralph Metzner
Professor of Psychology at Rhodes University Mike Earl-Taylor
Retired Professor of Psychology at Oxford University Graham Harris
Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Nebraska and licensed Psychologist Ronald Feintech
Ph.D. Clinical Neuropsychologist Richard Welser


The roster above is only a sample. There are too many Ph.D. scientists and engineers, architects, military and intelligence officials, politicians, legal scholars and other highly-credible people who question 9/11 — literally thousands — to list in one place. Here are a few additional people to consider:
The former director of the FBI (Louis Freeh) says there was a cover up by the 9/11 Commission
Former air traffic controller, who knows the flight corridor which the two planes which hit the Twin Towers flew “like the back of my hand” and who handled two actual hijackings (Robin Hordon) says that 9/11 could not have occurred as the government says, and that planes can be tracked on radar even when their transponders are turned off (also, listen to this interview)
Perhaps “the premiere collapse expert in the country”, who 9/11 Commissioner Timothy Roemer referred to as a “very, very respected expert on building collapse”, the head of the New York Fire Department’s Special Operations Command and the most highly decorated firefighter in its NYFD history, who had previously “commanded rescue operations at many difficult and complex disasters, including the Oklahoma City Bombing, the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing, and many natural disasters worldwide” thought that the collapse of the South Tower was caused by bombs, because the collapse of the building was too even to have been caused by anything else (pages 5-6).
Former Deputy Secretary for Intelligence and Warning under Nixon, Ford, and Carter (Morton Goulder), former former Deputy Director to the White House Task Force on Terrorism (Edward L. Peck), and former US Department of State Foreign Service Officer (J. Michael Springmann), as well as a who’s who of liberals and independents) jointly call for a new investigation into 9/11
Former FBI agent (Robert Wright) says “The FBI, rather than trying to prevent a terrorist attack, was merely gathering intelligence so they would know who to arrest when a terrorist attack occurred.”
Former Minnesota Governor (Jesse Ventura) questions the government’s account of 9/11 and asks whether the World Trade Center was demolished
Former FBI translator, who the Department of Justice’s Inspector General and several senators have called extremely credible (free subscription required) (Sibel Edmonds), said “If they were to do real investigations we would see several significant high level criminal prosecutions in this country. And that is something that they are not going to let out. And, believe me; they will do everything to cover this up”. She also is leaning towards the conclusion that 9/11 was an inside job. Some of her allegations have been confirmed in the British press.

"Tapes Depict Proposal to Thwart
Bomb Used in Trade Center Blast"
By Ralph Blumenthal
Law-enforcement officials were told that terrorists were building a bomb that was eventually used to blow up the World Trade Center, and they planned to thwart the plotters by secretly substituting harmless powder for the explosives, an informer said after the blast.
The informer was to have helped the plotters build the bomb and supply the fake powder, but the plan was called off by an F.B.I. supervisor who had other ideas about how the informer, Emad Salem, should be used, the informer said.
The account, which is given in the transcript of hundreds of hours of tape recordings that Mr. Salem secretly made of his talks with law-enforcement agents, portrays the authorities as being in a far better position than previously known to foil the February 26th bombing of New York City's tallest towers.
The explosion left six people dead, more than a thousand people injured, and damages in excess of half-a-billion dollars. Four men are now on trial in Manhattan Federal Court [on charges of involvement] in that attack.
Mr. Salem, a 43-year-old former Egyptian Army officer, was used by the Government [of the United States] to penetrate a circle of Muslim extremists who are now charged in two bombing cases: the World Trade Center attack, and a foiled plot to destroy the United Nations, the Hudson River tunnels, and other New York City landmarks. He is the crucial witness in the second bombing case, but his work for the Government was erratic, and for months before the World Trade Center blast, he was feuding with the F.B.I.
Supervisor `Messed It Up'
After the bombing, he resumed his undercover work. In an undated transcript of a conversation from that period, Mr. Salem recounts a talk he had had earlier with an agent about an unnamed F.B.I. supervisor who, he said, "came and messed it up."
"He requested to meet me in the hotel," Mr. Salem says of the supervisor.
"He requested to make me to testify, and if he didn't push for that, we'll be going building the bomb with a phony powder, and grabbing the people who was involved in it. But since you, we didn't do that."
The transcript quotes Mr. Salem as saying that he wanted to complain to F.B.I. Headquarters in Washington about the Bureau's failure to stop the bombing, but was dissuaded by an agent identified as John Anticev.
Mr. Salem said Mr. Anticev had told him,
"He said, I don't think that the New York people would like the things out of the New York Office to go to Washington, D.C."
Another agent, identified as Nancy Floyd, does not dispute Mr. Salem's account, but rather, appears to agree with it, saying of the `New York people':
"Well, of course not, because they don't want to get their butts chewed."

Germany Joins Switzerland In Insanity Land

Rights? You ain't got no stinkin' rights -

KARLSRUHE, Germany — In a widely followed ruling on Wednesday, Germany’s Constitutional Court upheld the legality of Berlin’s rescue packages for debt-stricken euro zone countries, but said any future bailouts must be approved by a parliamentary panel. The decision was viewed by some analysts as a rare triumph for Chancellor Angela Merkel and seemed to place fewer restrictions than some had expected on her ability to react to the European debt crisis. At the same time, the high public standing of the court should lend broader legitimacy to government efforts to shore up the European currency. 

Now why would they do such a thing? As we pointed out yesterday, the globalists tend to cover for one another -

Speaking at a parliamentary budget debate in Berlin, Mrs. Merkel said the ruling had “absolutely confirmed” her government’s “transparent” handling of Europe’s debt crisis in close consultation with Parliament. “That is exactly the path we have followed,” she said.

Mrs. Merkel again underlined her country’s commitment to the single currency and European integration, saying the euro was “much more than a common currency.”

“If the euro collapses, so does Europe,” she said, adding that “Germany’s future is inseparable from Europe’s future.”
May I remind the reader that the EU was supposedly only supposed to be for "free" trade.

The Real Effect
As pointed out last year, repeatedly -
Just a real quick recap on the preceding information - Britain is four times as broke as anyone thought, Spain is kicking the can down the road wishfully hoping the cost of debt gets cheaper, and European banks are just as insolvent as ever. Once again, how can this go wrong?
and -
The money would be coming from Germany, but the German and Greek people want NOTHING to do with a bailout. If Greece blows out, it'll blow out Spain, the U.K., Portugal. Each one of those, in turn will blow out more countries.

If Greece doesn't blow out, the pressure will be on to bail out Portugal who will just become the next, bigger Greece. In June, California has bonds due and they're in the same boat. There's a world of hurt coming fast. I think they can prop it up a bit longer perhaps 3-6 months? But every time they do, they make the end result that much more devastating, EXPONENTIALLY.

Look out for the shell game at this point. This is where the "leaders", who caused the mess by the way, give you your solution by stating the only thing that will save us is TOTAL GLOBAL POWER.
"Only a sustainable global economy can continue to guarantee growing wealth without jeopardizing the chance for future generations to meet their own needs." And how do we sustain it? Why, by having the developed world issue half a trillion in debt each and every month.
But to achieve their goal, they need to first be UNSUCCESSFUL with their bureaucratic efforts. It only works if you bring in a global despot as the world savior, much like Adolph was to Germany in the 30's.

A global Hitler you say? No way, it could neeeever happen.
So...let's recap. A bunch of globalists want to seize power legally so they conspire in secret meetings that they lie about for 50 plus years. After the seizure is started, they continue to lie not only about the goal, but the very existence of their plans in the first place despite their own public admissions. In the process they label alarmed ordinary people, "nuts, whack jobs, conspiracists" and all sorts of miscellaneous nonsense. Then, they manage to continue to lie not only about their goals, other people, but what is going on when they are executing the plan! A case of pure fraud.

Further, when their "great plan" begins to fall apart, they claim some sort of Romans 13 nonsense and insist that you not only throw yourself, but your children's future on the fires of Molech to ensure that the banksters don't get what's coming to them. Despite all of this, despite Europe melting down, wars being promised and executed...we still can't figure out who's doing this and why?!?

This is simple. The banksters are colluding against you. Period. Time to have some very public trials and see some of these fools spend some time in prison.

Hartmann: A French Revolution on Corps - off with their Corporate Heads!

The Swiss Shoot Themselves In the Face

This is getting entertaining, although your guess is as good as mine as to why someone would want to hitch their wagon to the Euro train -
Currency markets have seen massive volatility this morning after the Swiss National Bank decision to fix the Swiss franc to the euro.

Gold is trading at USD 1,899.50, EUR 1,339.10, GBP 1,177.30, CHF 1,611.10 (up from CHF 1,486.50 yesterday) and JPY 146,350 per ounce. Gold is down 0.18% in dollar terms and strong physical demand continues at these levels.

Just prior to the announcement, spot gold for immediate delivery had risen to a new record nominal high of $1,921.15/oz in early morning trading in Europe.

Then just before 0900 hours GMT came the news that the Swiss National Bank has decided to fix the country's exchange rate at 1.20 Swiss francs per euro. The SNB indicated it would buy an unlimited amount of euros regardless of the risk to maintain that value.
The Real Effect
Of course, feeding countries wholesale to the Euro maw will prolong the inevitable collapse, but it will also make the collapse that much worse. I imagine that the Swiss will soon be informing their leaders of their intentions on the street. It should look something like, Greece.

In short, there should be little doubt that countries will collude together throwing men, women and handicapped children under the bus in the inevitable race to the bottom. But, the witless wonder will protest, this is progress!!!
