Bernanke’s QE3 Announcement in 90 seconds (CNN video)

From CNNMoney

“NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — The Federal Reserve announced plans to unleash more stimulus Thursday, in its third attempt at a controversial program to rev up the U.S. economy.

“The policy, known as quantitative easing and often abbreviated as QE3, entails buying $40 billion in mortgage-backed securities each month. The end date remains up in the air, as the Fed will re-evaluate the strength of the economy in coming months.

“The Fed is wasting no time. The purchases begin Friday and are expected to add up to only $23 billion for the remainder of September.

“The bond-buying policy “should put downward pressure on longer-term interest rates, support mortgage markets, and help to make broader financial conditions more accommodative,” the Fed’s official statement said.

“Meanwhile, the Fed will continue its existing policy known as Operation Twist. Together the two programs will add $85 billion in long-term bonds to the Fed’s balance sheet each month.

“In addition, the Fed also indicated that it plans to keep short-term interest rates at “exceptionally low levels” until mid-2015. Previously, the Fed had forecast rates would remain low until late 2014.

“The central bank’s main objective is to lower interest rates and mortgage rates in particular. By keeping rates low, the Fed hopes to fuel more spending and eventually, more hiring.

“Related: QE3 won’t create jobs

“The Fed has been trying to stimulate the economy for over three years now, and has exhausted its usual tool by keeping interest rates near zero since late 2008. Quantitative easing is an unconventional way of trying to lower rates further.

“But given that the unemployment rate has remained above 8%, the Fed is still not satisfied.

“The weak job market should concern every American. It imposes hardship on people and a waste of human skills and talents,” Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke said in a press conference later Thursday.”

Nurse who treated Colorado theater shooting victims drowns; Was the shooting a false flag?

27 Aug

Fox News reports that a nurse who helped treat the victims in the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting drowned while vacationing in Iowa. When someone connected to a possible false flag attack goes swimming one night while on vacation and is found dead the next morning, it is a good idea to take note and put it in the “Just for the Record” folder. But that’s not all that is interesting about nurse Jennifer Gallagher, age forty six. She treated one of the shooting victims in the neurological intensive unit, which she helped open. She was also one of the hospital staff members who met with Obama when he visited Aurora after the massacre on July 20th. Again, at this time none of this means anything more than exactly what is said, but there is no harm in book marking this nugget of information.

Why is the Aurora theater shooting a possible false flag? See the links and videos below.

This is not the countenance I’d expect of a cold-blooded, calculating criminal. AP

Miller: Aurora shooter must have practiced  (cbsnews.com)

(CBS News) The well-armed shooter in the Aurora movie theater massacre had a hit ratio twice what a police officer might achieve engaging with armed assailants in a street setting.

That suggests, says CBS News senior correspondent John Miller, that the suspect – who is believed to have planned his assault with precision –  practiced shooting prior to the attack on the theater audience last Friday.

James Holmes, who made his first court appearance Monday, will face charges in the deaths of 12 people at the Century 16 theater. Fifty-eight others were also injured in the spree, most by gunfire.

ANAHEIM POLICE SHOOT AT WOMEN AND CHILDREN, UNLEASH K-9 ATTACK DOG

24 Jul

Everyone is focused on the joker nut ball, who is strangely not as spry and nimble as he was the day he wielded three guns, wounding 58 and killing 12. Meanwhile, US police officers ARE SHOOTING at WOMEN AND CHILDREN …in AMERICA…in 2012.

Deadly police shooting in Anaheim sparks violent protests – NBC News

23 Jul

“The deadly police shooting of an unarmed man in Anaheim, Calif., on Saturday sparked a series of violent protests over the weekend, aggravating already high tensions between police and citizens.

More than a hundred residents of northeastern Anaheim reacted to the fatal shooting of 24-year-old Manuel Diaz by police by setting fire to garbage dumpsters in the street and throwing bottles at police officers Saturday night.

Police fired pepper balls and bean bags to control the crowd. The unrest escalated when a police dog escaped a squad car through an open window and bit at least two people. Five people were arrested.

The protests continued on Sunday, with dozens of people lining the streets outside police headquarters and then storming into the lobby chanting “shame,” “no justice, no peace,” and “cops, pigs and murderers,” as officials went into a press conference regarding the controversial shooting.

Protesters said they wanted to know what threat Diaz posed to officers.

The protest at the Anaheim Police Department was the latest in a series of actions by families of shooting victims, some of whom have been holding weekly protests for nearly two years at police headquarters in Orange County, NBCLosAngeles.com reported.

Anaheim Police Chief John Welter said two officers were placed on paid leave after one of them shot Diaz around 4 p.m. Saturday.

Welter said officers were patrolling a neighborhood in northeastern Anaheim when they approached three men allegedly acting suspiciously in an alley, NBCLosAngeles.com reported.

As police started questioning Diaz, who was standing outside a car talking to the two men inside, the car drove off and Diaz started running. Police chased him down and shot him.

“He was shot first in the back, but he was down,” Diaz’s mother, Genevieve Huizar, told NBCLosAngeles.com through tears Sunday, “then they shot him a second time. They shot him in the head.”

Welter said he can’t say why police shot Diaz during the chase, but he did confirm no weapon was found at the crime scene.

“At this time, there’s no information that he was armed when he was shot,” Welter said at a press conference, “but we don’t know what was thrown away as he was running away from the officers, and that was not found, according to the district attorney’s office.”

Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait called for an independent probe into a fatal police shooting, asking the state attorney general’s office to get involved.

“Transparency is essential,” Tait said during a press conference at the Anaheim Police Department. “The investigation will seek the truth, and whatever the truth is, we will own it.”

Anaheim was one of six California cities with populations greater than 100,000 that saw a big spike in violent crime last year, according to an analysis of FBI crime data released in June.”

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?’

Leading Cause of Unnatural Human Death in 20th Century is Democide – You Have No Right To Health or Government & Police Protection

18 Jun

WAKE UP!
NOW IS THE TIME. THE TIME IS NOW. RESIST.

From 1900 to 2000, the leading cause of non-natrual death in humans was democide, the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide, and mass murder.  Government has taken 662 million lives in just 100 years, not including those killed in active combat.  It is estimated that government has killed more than six times the number of people killed in all battles combined.

If all 262 million bodies were laid head to toe, with the average height being 5 feet, they would circle the earth ten times.  It’s as if there was a nuclear war, but the casualties were spread over the period of a century. (from www.hawaii.edu)

Many Americans have found themselves  fighting the government to be able to produce, sell, and eat the type of food they desire.  How can the government decide what type of food we sell, produce, and eat in a “free” country, especially if the food is making us healthier?  How can the government arrest people over unpasteurized milk? How free would you feel if you were told you have no right to being healthy, and  no right to allow your children to eat and drink the foods you feel are best for them?

John Stossel’s Illegal Everything   *~*MUST SEE*~*

Lemonade stands, raw milk, fast food, and recording police are things that could earn you not just fines, but also a place in jail.  The bitter irony rings in my head as I remember asking my mother at a very young age, “If drugs are illegal, why do they allow people to eat McDonald’s food?” Of course I was no more than eight years old and was only trying to keep others safe. On a field trip to the museum, we were shown over-sized models of clogged arteries, with french fries and hamburgers named as the culprit. At school, they told us drugs were bad. They also told us fast food was bad. I always knew I was a prophet…or was I just a child bending to engineered consent 20 years in advance?

In a dismissal letter dated April 26, 2010 from The United States District Court For The Northern District of Iowa Western Division concerning the right to purchase and consume unpasteurized milk, the court stated:

Plaintiffs’ assertion of afundamental right to their own bodily and physical health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families” is similarly unavailing because plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish. In addition, courts have consistently refused to extrapolate a generalized right to “bodily and physical health” from the Supreme Court’s narrow substantive due process precedents regarding abortion, intimate relations, and the refusal of lifesaving medical treatment. See Glucksberg, 521 U.S. at 721 (warning that the fact “[t]hat many of the rights and liberties protected by the Due Process Clause sound in personal autonomy does not warrant the sweeping conclusion that any and all important, intimate, and personal decisions are so protected); see also Cowan v. United States, 5 F. Supp. 2d 1235, 1242 (N.D. Okla. 1998) (rejecting a claim that the plaintiff had the fundamental “right to take whatever treatment he wishes due to his terminal condition regardless of whether the FDA approves the treatment”). Finally, even if such a right did exist, it would not render
FDA’s regulations unconstitutional because prohibiting the interstate sale and distribution of unpasteurized milk promotes “bodily and physical health.”

I may be reading this wrong, but did the court rule that, if the right existed, prohibiting the sale and distribution of raw milk wouldn’t  be unconstitutional because the FDA’s regulations restricting food choice are to keep us safe and promote “bodily and physical health”?

Sunday Bloody Sunday  by U2

 

 

From wikipedia

“Bloody Sunday (Irish: Domhnach na Fola)[1][2]—sometimes called the Bogside Massacre[3]—was an incident on 30 January 1972 in the Bogside area of Derry, Northern Ireland, in which 26 unarmed civil-rights protesters and bystanders were shot by soldiers of the British Army. Thirteen males, seven of whom were teenagers, died immediately or soon after, while the death of another man four-and-a-half months later was attributed to the injuries he received on that day. Two protesters were also injured when they were run down by army vehicles.[4] Five of those wounded were shot in the back.[5] The incident occurred during a Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association march; the soldiers involved were members of the First Battalion of the Parachute Regiment (1 Para).[6]”

“The Provisional Irish Republican Army‘s (IRA) campaign against the partition of Ireland had begun in the two years prior to Bloody Sunday, but public perceptions of the day boosted the status of, and recruitment into, the organisation enormously.[13] Bloody Sunday remains among the most significant events in the Troubles of Northern Ireland, chiefly because those who died were shot by the British army rather than paramilitaries, in full view of the public and the press.[3]”

Sometimes I see articles that may not mean much now, but seem like they could somehow be significant in the future. I put them in my “Just For The Record” folder. Sometimes I save them because I want to see if a trend begins, other times I save articles if the subject is something that could be rather significant, or be developed into something rather significant, but is so far under-reported. I snagged this one when I saw the short initial AP release about the SUV crash.  I had wondered why they hadn’t declared it domestic terrorism.

The entire release is as follows, from NYdaily.com on June 9 as reported by AP

WASHINGTON — Authorities say the man accused of driving an SUV into an office building in the nation’s capital has been charged with arson and other counts.

Gwendolyn Crump is a spokeswoman for District of Columbia police. She said in an email Saturday that 32-year-old Charles Morrell Ball of New Market, Md., had also been charged with felony destruction of property and felony unauthorized use of vehicle driver.

Authorities had said previously that they believed the driver intentionally crashed into the office building Friday night. The vehicle had been reported stolen.

The building is less than a mile from the White House in the city’s business district. It has a mix of offices, retail shops and restaurants.

Then also on June 9, a day after the crash, I noticed the Washington Post reports:

  • The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force was at the scene Friday evening
  •  D.C. police Chief Cathy L. Lanier said Saturday that Ball’s “motive was not a terrorist motive.”
  • Police spokeswoman Tisha Grant said that Charles Morrell Ball, 32, of Frederick County was charged with three felonies — arson, destruction of property and unauthorized use of a vehicle.
  • It appeared that Ball, the driver, had acted alone.
  • Ball has “mental-health issues.”
  • The Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services.  Ball is listed in the Maryland registry of sex offenders
  • According to court records, he was convicted in 2008 in Carroll County Circuit Court of a third-degree sexual offense & he had been complying with sex-offender reporting requirements.
  • Ball was convicted of three other charges since 2006 — two thefts and an assault.
  • D.C. police Chief Cathy L. Lanier said Ball was taken to a hospital for evaluation and was released into police custody.   She said Ball gave “a good debrief” to investigators after his arrest. (What does that mean?)
  • A witness said “a man who appeared to be the driver struggled with building security officers, then with police.

Police Handcuff and Detain Forty Bank Robbery Bystanders; Story Details Change Without Note By CBS

7 Jun

There are a few phrases in the English language that I assumed made everyone’s ears burn and turn red when they heard them.  I don’t know who first told me to be wary of these simple words, but I do not doubt the warning.  There is something very chilling in justifying criminality and tyranny with these short statements:

The ends justify the means.” and “For the greater good.”

CBS reports that Chief Daniel Oates shamelessly declared “The ends justify the means” because a suspect was caught after the Aurora Police Department shut down an intersection in search of a bank robber.  At the intersection, the police stopped 19 cars, and detained all 40 innocent people who had been riding in the vehicles, because the officers had some undisclosed technology providing information that promised “virtual certainty” that the bank robber was among the 40 innocent Americans being harassed.  The cops had the suspect’s name but no picture, description, or any idea what car the robber would be in. This somehow permitted an ordinary crime, once again, to be the reason for the annulment of the fourth amendment, and therefore the disrespect and arrogant dismissal of the rule of law and justice.  frederickleatherman.wordpress.com had this to say:

A reasonable suspicion is more than a mere hunch. It requires articulable facts and circumstances that would cause a reasonable person to suspect that a particular individual had committed, was committing, or was about to commit a crime.

Apparently, Officer Fania was looking for a particular weapon, which he believed was concealed in one of the vehicles at the intersection, but he did not have a description of the robber or the vehicle the robber was driving or in which he was riding. Therefore, every vehicle the police stopped was an unlawful stop, including the stop of the vehicle that contained the person they subsequently arrested.”
