News That Proves We’re Screwed – The Fall of The Republic UPDATED

30 Aug

The corrupt shadow government is unveiled a little more each week.

Two Cheers for Syrian Islamists (ForeignPolicy.com)

It is not a secret that the U.S. government is funding Syrian rebels, who include members of Al Qaeda, but this may be the first time they have openly called for “two cheers” in praise of the radical Islamic Jihadists fighting against the Assad regime. I find it odd that the title is so complimentary, yet in the article it specifically says, “Of course, Syrian Islamists are no friends of the United States–merely the enemies of one of its enemies.” This is like smiling while delivering horrible news of betrayal. When I read that, I got this picture in my head of a woman smiling as she says to her friend “Let’s go celebrate your marriage with ice cream! Of course, your husband is cheating on you.” Backwards is forwards, up is down, wrong is right, logic is insanity.

Bill Gross: “Normal” Economic Growth Impossible Now (moneymorning.com)

“Legendary market maven Bill Gross, the so-called “King of Bonds,” said investors will flat-out lose money if they continue employing the “buy and hold” strategies of the past.

“In his August Investment Outlook, Gross told investors that “financial repression, QEs of all sorts and sizes” and low interest rates will “dominate the timescape” for decades, maybe longer.

Investors must adjust to the new world order to avoid being the loser in this zero-growth environment, Gross warned.

“Ultimately, Gross said, the stock market’s historical, inflation-adjusted 6.6% annual growth rate is unsustainable.

“Gross, of course, is a bond man.

“In March, he launched an ETF version of his popular Pimco Total Return Fund (PTTRX) – the world’s biggest mutual fund, with more than $260 billion in assets. The Pimco Total Return ETF (NYSE: BOND) quickly attracted $2.1 billion in total deposits and has outpaced the S&P 500 by more than 5% so far.

“But even bonds – both government-backed and corporate – can’t escape the realities of a no-growth economy.

According to global economic trend forecaster Chris Martenson, a former VP of a Fortune 300 company, the historical growth rates investors have come to expect – in every asset class – are no longer mathematically possible.

“Right now, there are dangerous economic constraints,” he said, “mainly created by failed government policies, which show exponential growth in our markets is impossible.”

Exclusive: U.S. banks told to make plans for preventing collapse | Reuters (chicagotribune.com)

(Reuters) – U.S. regulators directed five of the country’s biggest banks, including Bank of America Corp and Goldman Sachs Group Inc, to develop plans for staving off collapse if they faced serious problems, emphasizing that the banks could not count on government help.

The two-year-old program, which has been largely secret until now, is in addition to the “living wills” the banks crafted to help regulators dismantle them if they actually do fail. It shows how hard regulators are working to ensure that banks have plans for worst-case scenarios and can act rationally in times of distress.

Brandon J. Raub, Former Marine, Detained After Anti-Government Facebook Postings (Huffington Post)

Marine Veteran Brandon Raub Sentenced To Up To 30 Days In Psych Ward Over Facebook Posts (businessinsider.com)

Excerpt:

“Lawyers from The Rutherford Institute represented Brandon Raub during the three-hour hearing today at the John Randolph Medical Center and released a statement, saying Raub has been ordered to “up to 30 days’ further confinement in a VA psych ward” after “government officials againpointed to Raub’s Facebook posts as the sole reason for their concern and for his continued incarceration.”

“According to Raub’s mother, authorities from the FBI, Secret Service and Chesterfield County PD came to their door on Thursday evening, questioned Raub about his Facebook posts, then handcuffed him and placed him in a Chesterfield PD squad car before taking him to John Randolph Psychiatric Hospital in Hopewell, Va.”

“Both the FBI and Secret Service said Raub was not arrested or charged, but the Rutherford Institute statement points out that “if the police have put handcuffs on you and you’re being held against your will, that qualifies as an arrest.”

Couple handcuffed, jailed for dancing on subway platform: lawsuit – New York Post

8 Jul

Picture from dailymail.com

New York Post –

First smoking, then soda — now there’s no dancing in New York City.

Caroline Stern, 55, and her boyfriend George Hess, 54, claim they were handcuffed for having happy feet on the platform of the Columbus Circle subway station — and spent 23 hours in custody as a result.

“I’m a dentist, and I’m 55, and I got arrested for dancing,” Stern told The Post. “It was absolutely ridiculous that this happened.”

It was nearly midnight when Stern and Hess, a film-industry prop master, headed home last July from Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night’s Swing. As they waited for the train, a musician started playing steel drums on the nearly empty platform and Stern and Hess began to feel the beat.

“We were doing the Charleston,” Stern said. That’s when two police officers approached and pulled a “Footloose.”

“They said, ‘What are you doing?’ and we said, ‘We’re dancing,’ ” she recalled. “And they said, ‘You can’t do that on the platform.’ ”

The cops asked for ID, but when Stern could only produce a credit card, the officers ordered the couple to go with them — even though the credit card had the dentist’s picture and signature.

When Hess began trying to film the encounter, things got ugly, Stern said.

“We brought out the camera, and that’s when they called backup,” she said. “That’s when eight ninja cops came from out of nowhere.”

Hess was allegedly tackled to the platform floor, and cuffs were slapped on both of them. The initial charge, according to Stern, was disorderly conduct for “impeding the flow of traffic.”

“There was nobody on the platform. There were, like, three people,” she said.

The charges, including resisting arrest, were later dropped. The couple has filed a Manhattan federal court suit against the city for unspecified damages.

“If you are surrounded by good musicians, that’s going to make you want to dance,” Stern said. “The musician who is playing is legal, but . . . we’re illegal?”

The avid hoofers frequently go out on the town to boogie.

“When you’re waiting for the subway late at night, there’s not much to do but dance and celebrate life,” she said.

The city Law Department is reviewing the court papers, a spokeswoman said.

Austin Police Dept Corruption Exposed

8 Jul

If you don’t know the Antonio Buehler story, I have posted some information below this new video of Antonio Buehler addressing Austin officials. Make sure to see his credentials at the bottom. He’s a CEO, a teacher, a war veteran, a Stanford and West Point graduate with accolades and he works with disadvantaged children. The Austin Police Department’s lies are helping no one. Their denial of any wrongdoing and refusal to release the dash cam video will only continue to encourage an antagonistic relationship between the community and the police. The more animosity and resentment the public feels towards the cops, the more danger police put themselves in.

The original news report.

You may not be a fan of Alex Jones, but the following is the most comprehensive interview.

After midnight on New Years of this year, war veteran Antonio Buehler witnessed Austin police officers being unnecessarily rough with a female at a gas station.

The police had pulled over a car containing two females and began to question the driver. The passenger yelled to her friend that she did not have to take a sobriety test. The police claimed the passenger’s right to free speech was an interference. One of the two cops, Oborski, ripped the female out of the car, eliciting a scream from the victim. She was then cuffed and held by both cops in a “pain compliance” move that reminds me of strappado, a medieval Inquisition torture technique that was used in torture chambers.

Note: A form of strappado  was used by abusive U.S. military personnel at Abu Ghraib, but was referred to as a “Palestinian Hanging.” It resulted in the death of Manadel al-Jamadi in 2003. This technique not only has potential to dislocate shoulders, causing long-term tendon, ligament, and nerve damage, but in some forms of the technique, the victim also risks having their shoulders broken.

Wikipedia describes strappado as:

A form of torture in which the victim’s hands are first tied behind his or her back and suspended in the air by means of a rope attached to wrists, which most likely dislocates both arms. Weights may be added to the body to intensify the effect and increase the pain.

When Antonio saw this happening, he pulled out his mobile phone and began taking photos.

“We pull out our cameras and try to take pictures with our cell phones,” he said. “She sees me taking pictures and says, ‘please, take pictures and videos.’

“I asked the cop, ‘why are you hurting her, she didn’t do anything wrong, stop hurting her.’

“They pick her up and walk her right past us. Oborski then turns around walks back towards me.”

“’He said, ‘who do you think you are?’

NewsDiffs Shows Changes Made to New York Times Articles After They’re Published | Betabeat.

Read the article: NewsDiffs Shows Changes Made to New York Times Articles After They’re Published | Betabeat.

speech-and-sight-arabawy.org

I’ve heard stories of online news magically changing, I’ve witnessed it happen, I know it happens, but I am always happy to see it brought to the public’s attention. We ARE being censored, we ARE being monitored, my mail has been opened and inspected, and I’m not sure about the noises my friend and I always hear when we talk to each other on the phone.

I wish the people still sleeping would snap out of it and realize everything they know is a lie. I am aware that I am ignorant as well. In an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) world where information travels so quickly and is at your fingertips at all times, we cannot possibly ever know the full narrative, but at least I try to find truth, to understand it, and share what I find with others (most of whom don’t listen.) When they wake up one day after QE3 and their money that they just HAD to make is worth nothing, and the job that they just COULD NOT take a vacation from no longer pays enough for them to eat, maybe then they’ll get it.  It will be too late though. I think it already is too late.

For the story on how I have been (and most likely still am) monitored, see My mail opened and inspected…

I made a large online purchase of all the books that will most likely eventually be banned. Two of my packages came opened and marked. My best friend, whom I have long discussions with concerning corruption and dissent on the phone as well as via email exchange, had her new phone intercepted at the post office by feds, however she was out of the state at the time.

Wow, was the person who did this 8 years old, or was it opened by the monkey they use to train the TSA?

It’s a little known fact that government employees are actually trained by monkeys. (This is a joke.)

One of the packages that was ripped open just happened to be H.G. Wells New World Order. Seriously.

After my best friend and I started emailing and talking about corruption and dissent, this started popping up on her computer. Now it shows up all of the time, but disappears within a few seconds. We’ve got some strange things going on with our phones too.


Chimes of Freedom: Using Music To Teach; The Fourth Amendment Song Contest

11 Jun

I remember reading a piece called ‘TSA Arrests Me for Using the Fourth Amendment as a Weapon (Tales from the Edge of a Revolution #2)” at dailykos.com.  It’s one of my favorite stories about TSA civil disobedience. A woman was arrested for reciting the fourth amendment, calmly but loudly, while receiving a TSA groping. It’s infuriating, but this woman is a hero in my eyes.  After reading this, I decided I should make sure I knew the fourth amendment by heart, and be capable of saying it effortlessly in case I was ever in a similar situation.

I then started thinking about my niece, and how much I fear her going to public schools when she is old enough.  I worry about the conditioning and and overall indoctrination into this “backwards is forwards” world and mindset propagated by the puppet masters. I wondered if she will ever say the Pledge of Allegiance to the American Flag or sing ‘My Country ‘Tis of Thee‘ like I did as a child.

Arrested For Spitting, Is this Singapore or the U.S.A.? Neither (And other ways we’re screwed)

6 Jun

Read “Florida Man arrested for Spitting on Sidewalk“and see video at TBO.com

Warning:  This piece is riddled with personal opinion, sarcasm, insults, political incorrectness, bad attitude, and a little foul language, but it does provide a nice handful of important information as well.  Enjoy!

Joseph Stoiber, a self-proclaimed insomniac, was out for an early a.m. stroll, talking on his cell phone, when a police officer approached him and questioned his motives for…gasp…walking around a supposedly free country.  The officer asked to pat him down, as he legally has the right to do, even though it is absurd and repugnant to the Constitution, but Joseph Stoiber refused, as he has every legal right to do because the cop had no probable cause.  The cop and the Stoiber started disputing the really simple, obvious legality of  Stoiber, an American citizen guilty of no crime, nor suspicious of committing any crime, walking about his own country in the morning hours and refusing a warrantless search.

“Things got heated” (read: Cop’s ego couldn’t handle legally being told “no” by a lowly citizen) and Stoiber was handcuffed.  He then committed the unthinkable crime of spitting on a sidewalk because he had chewing tobacco in his mouth.   Stoiber was then arrested, because it is illegal to spit on the sidewalk in Florida

It’s true, You Really Can’t Speak Poorly of Obama

31 May

Fox News Says Obama Video Not Authorized – WSJ.com.

I guess it’s true, you really can’t speak ill of Obama.

Fox news released an anti-Obama video that hadn’t been authorized at the senior level, so it only ran twice before senior members banned it.

This blows my mind.  I know Fox is controlled by the giant mega media companies, so this shouldn’t be a surprise, but Fox using self-censorship when it comes to opinions on Obama is bizarre.  They’re making it seem like someone did something criminal by making the video, when in reality it is essentially a non-story, besides the fact that it demonstrates censorship and the attempts to eliminate dissent.

This makes me want to vomit.  Where are we?  To say we’re not in Kansas anymore doesn’t capture the gravity of our situation.  How long will I even have this blog before it is shut down?
