As I watched the beginning of the Boston Red Sox game, the first baseball game played in Boston since the tragic events of 4/15/2013, I was flabbergasted by the propaganda that was taking place before my eyes. Thousands of people applauding the police who had shut down their city in an attempt to find one unarmed, wounded 19 year old. Thousands of people applauding the martial law that had come to their city. Thousands of people applauding the disintegration of The Bill of Rights and welcoming the armed men who could remove entire families from their homes at gun point without warrant and without, in my humble opinion, just cause. All for one lonely, isolated teen accused, not proven, of doing something evil and already judged guilty by the masses. READ MORE »

I think that perhaps I’ve always been a conspiracy theorist. Now, that statement needs a little clarification. Always is a long time, so perhaps it would be better to say I’ve been a conspiracy theorist in this lifetime. Ah, but even that is a long time and can be a little unclear, so perhaps it is a little more accurate to say I’ve been a conspiracy theorist for as long as I can remember. Hmm, even that’s a little incorrect because I can remember pretty far back to times when I didn’t have a realistic idea of how the world works. Perhaps if I claim I’ve been a conspiracy theorist for as long as I’ve been able to think about such things and use reason to come to logical conclusions. Yeah, that’s the ticket. READ MORE »
There has been speculation regarding President Obama’s “citizen army”. In 2008, President Obama made statements regarding a “civilian national security force”. Since that day, many have been curious as to what President Obama had in mind when he made that statement. Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY13) may have just given a bit of insight into what was meant when he introduced H.R. 748 last week.
“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded,” Obama said as a candidate in 2008.
H.R. 748 would require all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 25 to perform “national service”. These persons in the United States would either serve the country as a member of uniformed services or as civilian service. The civilian service could be served with a Federal, State, or local government program. The local government programs include community-based organizations. H.R. 748 would “authorize the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services, to provide for the registration of women under the Military Selective Service Act, and for other purposes”
There’s a famous radio talk show I listen to. Actually, it’s on late at night and so I listen to the podcast. The host will occasionally have a guest on who will speak about the Obama administration and many times these guests will refer to the president simply as Obama. The host believes that proper respect should be shown and the top executive should be referred to as “president Obama.” He thinks that even if one doesn’t respect the man one should respect the office. I happen to disagree. I think proper respect is earned, and in my eyes Mr. Obama has not earned my respect. In my lifetime no one who has ever obtained the office of POTUS has earned my respect, with perhaps the exception of JFK but I was only three when he was killed. It is therefore extremely difficult for me to respect even the office itself. READ MORE »
As a writer and a blogger, I do occasionally correspond with some of my readers who my writings have touched. Sometimes I am exposed to interesting stories about their lives and maybe some epiphany they might have had. Such is the case with Howard who recently emailed me with a personal story about an interaction he had with what he described as a liberal/socialist on facebook. He now faces a dilemma many others who have discovered the message of freedom face, the dilemma of extricating themselves from a system they find repugnant without starving to death. READ MORE »
Mystery as American drone is found floating off the coast of the Philippines… 1,000 miles away from the nearest U.S. base
A U.S. naval drone has been found floating off the coast of the Philippines – hundreds of miles away from the nearest American military base.
The fishermen who found the 10ft orange device originally reported that it could have been a bomb, prompting local officials to send munitions experts out into the sea.
But when it was determined to be safe, the unmanned aerial vehicle was taken into the care of the Filipino navy.

“I want the people of America to be able to work less for the government and more for themselves. I want them to have the rewards of their own industry. That is the chief meaning of freedom. Until we can re-establish a condition under which the earnings of the people can be kept by the people, we are bound to suffer a very distinct curtailment of our liberty.”
President Calvin Coolidge in his 1925 inaugural address
In these days of political discourse, I am amazed at the number of people who are still worshipping at the feet of some political party or the other, mostly the other. While a significant number of people have “awakened,” (become aware that the whole political system is a scam and that most politicians are bought and paid for by corporate interests, mostly banks and the financial sector, and couldn’t care less about you) there are still those zombies walking around out there spouting fear based propaganda (i.e., talking points) and insisting that everything will get better if only their guy is granted control of the magical scepter of power.

A NATO airstrike killed eight women and girls in eastern Afghanistan, local officials reported. The alliance said the strike targeted 45 armed insurgents but admitted some civilians may have been killed.
The women were gathering firewood when they were killed by the strike, spokesperson for the Laghman provincial government Sarhadi Zewak said. Several women were also injured during the NATO strike, he added.
Villagers brought the victims’ bodies to the local governor’s office on Sunday in the wake of the attack, amid cries of “Death to America!” said Zewak.
Seven females are now in nearby hospitals receiving treatment, some of whom are as young as ten years old, AP reports.
Initial reports claimed that as many as 45 armed insurgents were killed in a “precision air strike,” NATO spokesperson Jamie Graybeal said. However, Major Adam Wojack, a spokesman for the Isaf later told the BBC that between five and eight civilians may have been caught in the crossfire in a “tragic loss of life.”
Well, I was going to make this a nice and fluffy piece. I was going to explain that the demons are you and I. I was going to make the statement that the angels are in our mirrors. The decisions you make in your life tell you what side you fall upon. You can be both a demon and an angel and change within minutes. While all that’s true, there’s more to it than that. Of course we’re both. Of course we can create our own Heaven or our own Hell right here on Earth. That’s part of being human. But I believe there are real angels and real demons living amongst us. I believe that some of them are even pretending to be humans. READ MORE »
OBO, Central African Republic — It has got to be one of the oddest matchups in United States military history.
One hundred of America’s elite Special Operations troops, aided by night vision scopes and satellite imagery, are helping African forces find a wig-wearing, gibberish-speaking fugitive rebel commander named Joseph Kony who has been hiding out in the jungle for years with a band of child soldiers and a harem of dozens of child brides.
No one knows exactly where Mr. Kony is, but here in Obo, at a remote forward operating post in the Central African Republic, Green Berets pore over maps and interview villagers, hopeful for a clue.
Their biggest challenge, they say, is Mr. Kony’s turf, a vast expanse the size of California in the middle of Africa that is so rugged it renders much of the American gadgetry useless. Picture towering trees that blot out the sun, endless miles of elephant grass, and swirling brown rivers that coil like intestines and are infested with crocodiles; one of them recently ate a Ugandan member of the force.
Ron Paul has managed to prove certain popularly held beliefs about elections false. He has likely done this unwittingly. He has taken it on himself to deliver the message of freedom to the masses and has discovered some unusual phenomena that we as voters may not have otherwise believed. It is a truly wondrous world we live in when our firmly held beliefs can be so challenged. READ MORE »
SEOUL – North Korea has readied a rocket for a launch from a forested valley in its remote northwest this week that will showcase the reclusive state’s ability to fire a missile with the capacity to hit the continental United States.
Pyongyang says the rocket, to be launched this week, will only carry a weather satellite, but South Korea and the United States say it is a test of a ballistic missile. And although the risk of it veering off course is low, guidance remains its weakest point.
In a rare move, reporters were taken to the new Sohae launch station, close to the border with China, where work was in progress to ready the 30-metre high Unha-3 rocket and its satellite.
There are a couple of things one might want to accomplish when talking to worshippers of the state. I think that first and foremost one wants is to turn the brain of the worshipper back on. One wants to get the state practitioner to think. That isn’t to say that worshippers of the state don’t think. It is simply that they have decided not to think about certain issues. They have been taught certain paradigms and have accepted them as truth. They simply don’t want to think more deeply about those issues as they go about their lives. The difficulty is getting through their programming to get them to reconsider the paradigms which they learned at a young age and continue to be propagated in the life they observe around them.

American scientists have drawn up plans for a new generation of nuclear-powered drones capable of flying over remote regions of the world for months on end without refuelling.
The blueprints for the new drones, which have been developed by Sandia National Laboratories – the US government’s principal nuclear research and development agency – and defence contractor Northrop Grumman, were designed to increase flying time “from days to months” while making more power available for operating equipment, according to a project summary published by Sandia.
“It’s pretty terrifying prospect,” said Chris Coles of Drone Wars UK, which campaigns against the increasing use of drones for both military and civilian purposes. “Drones are much less safe than other aircraft and tend to crash a lot. There is a major push by this industry to increase the use of drones and both the public and government are struggling to keep up with the implications.”
