Prosecuting The Public

By Jim Kirwan
Thought Crimes in the Corrupted Legal System
There is one avenue of Tyranny that has managed to remain almost entirely overlooked; amid all the chaos of this disintegrating society. Let's look at the Judges, the Courts, the Prosecutor's and the hopelessly corrupt cops that are responsible for the world's largest prison system that incarcerates more people than any other nation on earth. Over 95% of the people in the US prison-system are there not because they committed violent crimes, but because they "violated someone else's idea of how they should live."
The privatized prison system is a fantastically successful 'income-generating stream' that furnishes the corporate world with virtually free labor; while providing the government with a massively powerful image they continue to use to threaten anyone that might even think about opposing the current system. The virtual KEY to keeping all of this governmental crime operating has always been the co-opting of the totally flawed JURY-SYSTEM that is a by-product of thought control and the entire CHESSBOARD that now rules over politics, education, and civic-interaction but especially over private-thoughts: Altogether this creates the ingredients necessary for the commission ofTHOUGHT-CRIMES.
This one-track system that we currently have holds that anyone who disagrees with any government policy is automatically an Enemy of the State. When an individual is arrested and charged; his or her chances for a "fair-trail" are far from good if that 'suspect' has any unusual or suspicious habits in his or her life. The population is now expected to live their lives without ever making a single recorded mistake-anywhere within the official record of their lives: Because no matter how long ago, or how trivial the mistake; that "ERROR" can always be recalled to color the personality of the accused to suit the prosecutor's (and simultaneously the skewed JURIES ends).
The completely distorted powers of the judges in most criminal cases has become a criminal-farce. This is true because American LAW has never been about either justice or truth: Rather it has always been about playing a privately-conceived legal game inside the courtroom according to the rules of British Maritime Law. In this game the judge alone gets to decide which items of evidence can be admitted into the decision and which cannot. This has nothing whatever to do with the US Constitution or American laws at all ­ but is a function of Admiralty Law of the Seas and dates back to the Magna Carta and before. Basically what we have today is CORPORATE-LAW being exercised between the various Corporate-Rules that govern Human Ownership. (1)
The key to keeping all this criminality in motion has always been the completely suspect verdicts of the jury-system. I say "suspect" because the lives and thoughts of the jury members are not solely those of the individuals themselves but are rather a construct of imbedded action-reaction-equations that this society has been inculcating its citizens with, from the moment of their birth. Consequently the "principles" that ought to be at stake in any trial don't even make it into the room. Instead juries tend to listen to the guidance from the bench about what and how they "MUST RULE" in any given case: And when the judges are as crooked as the cops and the prosecutors there is virtually no-chance for the defendant to escape conviction; which actually has nothing to do with whatever he or she was originally charged with. This is because Amerrikans now believe that there can only be one way to deal with people that do not obey every rule created at the whim of fascist police-state in which we now live.
The so-called police now openly murder people, for no reason whatsoever; and contrary to every police-department that always swears that it will "INVESTIGATE" ­ magically the cops always seem to evade prosecution or as in the case of the cold-blooded murder of Oscar Grant in Oakland: his killer was released after serving just 11 months in jail. The latest case from Phoenix illustrates my point here very clearly.
Basically the message to the public (in Phoenix) is if you want to die at the hands of police then "go ahead call 911!" The 29 year old UNARMED man was having a dispute with his mother, she called police. They arrived, entered the residence and within less-than a minute the family dog was killed and the suspect was first Tasered and then murdered. The conversation consisted of these words: "When they entered the home the 29 year old told them to leave saying they needed a warrant. Officer Chrisman (?) then pulled out his gun and put it up to the man's head saying: "I don't need no warrant, mother-*****r". Then it turned into a heated argument and a scuffle; the victim was Tazed twice, the officer then shot and killed the family dog then shot and killed Rodriguez as the two argued."
This was witnessed by the other police officer who said that "this was the worst day of his life." But the most telling statement about this MURDER came from the end of the tape whereon the Union Rep for the murderer demanded that his client (the killer) be given a fair and complete hearing about "all the facts in this case," BEFORE any action can be taken against this so-called officer? How is it that the killer can demand just treatment and the victim who was murdered got none of that: He was simply murdered by a psychotic rabid "officer" with deadly force in both hands. The law either applies to everyone involved or it applies to NO ONE ­ which would include those that resist any official in a uniform, anywhere, from TSA to anywhere USA. Listen to the video-tape and decide what you think for yourself-which incidentally just happens to be the key CRIME (actually thinking for yourself) behind committing a thought-crime in theUS today. (2)
Cops and first responders are just NOT that SPECIAL. They are not heroes or legendary warriors they are public servants that are over-paid to do their jobs. Part of their jobs involves life-threatening work, that's true, but no one forced them to do the work they do. And above all they should be held to HIGHER STANDARDS OF BEHAVIOR, than the public they are supposedly protecting: However the fact is they are biased, terrorized and terrifyingly deaf, dumb and blind to the public that they are called on to protect. After so many public-whitewashing of events that have seen hundreds of citizens die at the hands of police that are never charged with any crime; Even this herd of useless spectators might actually begin to answer fire with fire-unless something radically-fair begins to happen in every instance that happens from this day forward. We have enough problems without having to worry that every cop responding might just choose to execute the man or woman instead of actually abiding by the so-called LAW that only protects the filthy-rich from those that have nothing!
In the Handbook for Human Ownership; the way the public's ideas about the system and their own responsibilities are now formed within that system is thoroughly explained; and what it shows anyone willing to take the time to listen to the tape is that our 'people' are controlled from the cradle to the grave in order to be useful slaves and nothing more; to whatever the OWNERS of their lives decide that they MUST do.
What is also clear is that the personal-habits of the Judges, the Prosecutors, the Cops and the OWNERS of the Human-beings that make up this society are NEVER called into question-EVER! Please remember that these are the same people that created the screwed-up educational system, along with all the very twisted norms of behavior that everyone else is supposed to live by today. THEY however are immune from all the laws, and all the normally applicable consequences for their actions, while the rest of us are overtly responsible even for "thinking" the things I've just said above. None of these perverts in office could withstand a complete and unbiased examination of all their habits and preoccupations; if they were ever to be subjected to the same interrogations that "suspects: have to undergo at the slightest indication of any possibly suspect behavior! WHY NOT? That's easy because they are the ones that created all these hoops for the rest of us to jump through a thousand times each and every month! (3)
Victims in this country are a dime a dozen; and since we do not care what happens to those that fall into that category it will only get worse. However everyone that is so lucky will live to see old-age and this is some of what they have to look forward to thanks to what is about to happen to Social Security coupled with our assassins in uniform that still call themselves cops! You can change this by simply defending those that you love whenever they get caught up in anything from a TSA line to a traffic-stop; but you have to be willing to take action because these creatures will not just walk away or change on their own into what they should have been all along. (4)
This straight-jacket we are living inside took hundreds of years to create; and if the public actually were to become motivated it could be destroyed in a month; but only if and when the public finally comes to understand that it is the American Public that is now in the CROSSHAIRS of every one of its own government agencies, not to mention the completely failed two-party system that perpetuates the myth that there is any choice or difference between any of the serving politicians regardless of what they might choose to call themselves. . . it's still up to us to DO SOMETHING to change this intolerable situation!

Rochester Woman Arrested After Videotaping Police From Her Own Front Yard
NEW YORK -- In May, the Rochester Police Department arrested a woman on a charge of obstructing governmental administration after she videotaped several officers' search of a man's car. The charge is a criminal misdemeanor.
The only problem? Videotaping a police officer in public view is perfectly legal in New York state -- and the woman was in her own front yard. The arrest report of the incident also contains an apparent discrepancy from what is seen in the woman's own video.
That video, uploaded to the Internet this week, more than a month after Emily Good's May 12 arrest, begins by showing a black male being questioned by a police officer at about 10 p.m. The red and blue flashes of a police cruiser illuminate the scene on Aldine Street.
"I just got out of the house, man, I'm sick, man," the man who has been pulled over says. Other police officers search his car.
Then one of the officers, identified as Mario Masic in the arrest report, turns to the camera and asks, "You guys need something?"
"I'm just -- this is my front yard -- I'm just recording what you're doing. It's my right," Good replies.
"Actually, not from the sidewalk," the officer replies, incorrect about the legality of Good's actions.

"This is my yard," Good says.
"I don't feel safe with you standing behind me so I'm going to ask you go into your house, you understand?" Masic says.
From there, the conversation escalates into a confrontation, with Masic alleging that Good is threatening his safety, and that she expressed other, unspecified anti-police statements before the videotaping began.
"Due to what you said to me, before you started taping, I think, uh, you need to go stay in your house, guys."
Good's public defender, Stephanie Stare, told HuffPost she believes from her conversations with several neighbors who were present that Good made no threatening comments before the tape begins.
Ryan Acuff, a friend of Good's who witnessed the exchange and picked up the video camera after she was arrested, agreed.
"None of us was talking to them until they came to us," Acuff said. "The first contact was definitely on tape."
For more than a minute of the video, the officer and Good argue about whether she is threatening his safety. Finally, it appears, Masic has had enough: "You know what, you're gonna go to jail. That's just not right."
Acuff claimed that he and Good were complying with the policeman's order to return to their porch when she was arrested.
"The real reason they arrested her was because she was videotaping," Acuff said. Both he and Good are activists who have previously protested foreclosures in the area.
Acuff has posted his own account of the arrest on Indymedia. He said he and Good were videotaping the traffic stop out of concern about police misconduct.
The police report of the arrest contains another apparent discrepancy from what appears on the video: Masic writes that the traffic stop targeted three individuals who "were all chalkem south gang members."
"This gang is known for drugs guns and violence," Masic notes, underscoring the danger of the situation.
The video, while dark, appears to only show one man led out of the car. Good's public defender says that as far as she has been able to determine, only one man was pulled over.
The Rochester Police Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
In a statement released to the press, Rochester Police Chief James Sheppard said that while he had "researched" the incident, "With the case still pending and my unfamiliarity with the specific details, any assumptions at this time would be premature."
The police department has launched an internal investigation.
Good is scheduled to appear in court on Monday, where her public defender hopes the case will be dismissed.
If that doesn't happen, Stare said, she was not afraid of bringing Good's case to a jury trial.
"She was well within her rights."

The U.S. Federal Reserve Plan For QE3 – And Why It's a Done Deal

When U.S. central bank policymakers conclude their two-day meeting today (Wednesday), there's really only one question investors want an answer to: What's the U.S. Federal Reserve plan for QE3?

Let me answer that for you: QE3 is a done deal - although Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke & Co. might well give it another name.

Let me explain ...

$2.3 Trillion ... And Counting

Since December 2008, when a worldwide credit crisis threatened to take down the global financial system, the U.S. Federal Reserve has had a starring role. It has held the benchmark Federal Funds rate at historic lows between zero and 0.25% to keep the U.S. economy from stalling. And it's pumped more than $2.3 trillion into the American financial system, mostly by purchasing securities on the open market.

The key to these asset purchases has been two "quantitative easing" plans. The second of the two, known as "QE2," was a $600 billion initiative that was rolled out in November. It's supposed to wind down when the second quarter ends next week - which is what the Fed promised at the end of its last FOMC meeting in late April.

When the Fed's policymaking Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting breaks up at around noon today, pundits are expecting Team Bernanke to announce that it's holding rates steady, and is winding down QE2 as promised.

But I'm just not buying this.

You see, there's a reason there's so much interest in the Federal Reserve plan for QE2 - and for its plan for the much-talked-about QE3: At some point, the Bernanke-led Fed will be forced to halt this epic stimulus initiative. And that could ignite an inflationary firestorm not seen in this country in decades - if ever. That will turn the Fed's mandate of maintaining "price stability" into a bad joke.

But, even worse, it could tip the U.S. economy into a double-dip recession, ignite widespread layoffs and drive unemployment skyward, and hammer this country's standard of living - especially in households that didn't prepare for this eventuality.

So when Bernanke takes the podium for his press conference this afternoon (his second so far this year - the only two, in fact, ever held by a sitting Fed chairman), this one question is likely to be the first one that gets asked: "Mr. Bernanke, will you, or won't you, bring on QE3?

After all, the stimulus propped up the global financial markets once before, so why won't it work again ... or so goes the reasoning.

You can certainly understand the intense interest in this element of the current Federal Reserve plan for the American economy.

Here at home, U.S. stocks just concluded a six-week losing streak, and now face the so-called "summer doldrums." The American housing market seems to be getting worse. And inflationary pressures are building even as the U.S. economy appears to be slowing down - forcing investors to face the possibility that we'll see a double-dip recession that's infected with a virulent case of stagflation.

The overseas outlook isn't that much better. In the near term, the potential for a Greek debt default seems to soar one day and plummet the next and there seems to be a general belief that it's going to happen - the only question being when. And there are long-term issues, too, including the so-called "death" of nuclear power, which promises to cause energy prices to spike in the years to come.

So what about QE3?

Given this complicated backdrop, I think it's already baked in. The Fed just won't call it that. And I think they'll play a bit with the timing.

The Federal Reserve Plan for QE3

Here's what I see: Instead of printing more money, the Fed is likely to start reinvesting the proceeds of maturing debt. Ultimately, that won't reduce our government's bloated, toxic balance sheet. But it will change the makeup of that balance sheet - and not for the better.

I believe the Fed will also attempt a freeze of some sorts that effectively removes pressure from the U.S. Treasury markets that would otherwise crater it.

At the same time, I can easily envision continued demand for U.S. Treasuries from abroad that will confound such well-known Treasury bears as Pacific Investment Management Co. LLC (PIMCO) star Bill Gross, who has been wrong on Treasuries before.

The European euro is in real trouble - and so are the institutional investors who have parked their money there. This, in turn, means that the so-called "PIIGS" of Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece and Spain truly do run the barnyard - a fact that will help sustain U.S. Treasuries, as well.

As for the so-called "nuclear option" that is so popular on the late-night chat boards sponsored by card-carrying members of the tin foil hat club ... don't waste your time worrying about it. China can't dump U.S. dollars, and neither can Japan. Nor can either country dump U.S. Treasuries en masse. The reality is that there is simply not another alternative on the planet capable of absorbing the proceeds if they did so. So both nations are effectively stuck.

The final reason that I'm sure that QE3 is a done deal is, ironically, a political one. Despite the fact that so much is wrong with this country on so many levels, the fact is that we're heading into an election year and that means the status quo is likely to remain in place until the new guy reaches the White House. And the status quo speaks to the inevitable Federal Reserve Plan for QE3 - even though it's in the "stealth mode" that I'm predicting.

Be Free of Your Rights, Even Liberated From Life: Agenda 21 Comes Calling..

Rand Clifford
Activist Post

United Nations Agenda 21 – Blueprint to Advance Sustainable Development . . . doesn’t that sound nice? Who could be against sustainable development? Who doesn’t care deeply about mother Earth? Let’s save the world.

There’s a catch. Many catches, actually, at least 22 of them, but one is worst of all: The redundant theme in official documentation that human population must be reduced by 90%.

Development of this New World Order (NWO) plan for Dark Ages Redux has slithered along in plain sight (for those who look) since 1987. But in the Obama Show, it’s coiled and hissing.

Indispensable allies of the NWO are distraction, numbing, and dumbing-down of the mass American mind (MAM). For many people the Georgia Guidestones fundamentally convey the Ten Commandments of the NWO. Superficially fuzzy and warm, and smarmy to the core, the “commandments” do a reasonable job of cloaking the venom contained within. (1)  And there’s the massive concrete tombs in Arizona and California as well.

Agenda 21 is swaddled in euphemisms so warm and fuzzy that few Americans seem concerned about its fangs. In the simplest terms, Agenda 21 means total centralized global control over human life. No rights of property ownership . . . no rights at all. And exactly how 90% of the population will be liberated from life is rather hazy; the only clear aspect is that it must happen.

Caskets stockpiled in growing millions by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are nothing to be ignored . . . though somehow, they almost are being ignored. With the Agenda 21 “blueprint” unfolding so matter-of-factly in broad daylight, that seems unbelievable...unless you consider crucial things about what the MAM tends to prefer to see....

In the most general terms at least, it could be said that Large minds think about ideas; Medium minds think about events; Small minds think about people. Or, a slightly different angle might suggest that Large minds think about solutions to problems while Medium minds mire in problems themselves, and Small minds watch TV and play with their gadgets.

On the basis of these generalities, things are not looking at all sizeable in terms of the MAM. Current mainstream obsession with things that congressmen do with their weiners is bad enough. Perhaps even worse is the apparent newsworthiness of the Wasilla loose moose, Alaskan reload mama and her Rolling Blunder East Coast bus tour.  You know, where Paul Revere is Yosemite Sam in disguise...ring-a-ding-ding(bat)—KaPow! KaPow! KaPow! Back off, Redcoats! Hardly good indicators.

Damn embarrassing, actually.

The gravity of Agenda 21 makes it hard to write about without sounding alarmist, or eliciting groans and shouts of "conspiracy theory."  But NWO alpha psychopaths are obsessed with power; ultimate power concentration, centralized control over all aspects of human life, mass murder . . . such is the grit behind the silky euphemisms like “Sustainable Development”, and the decoys, “Save the Earth” and “Green”! Agenda 21 warrants about a million times more public scrutiny than it seems to be getting; I hope to encourage more people to become aware of the program.

Of course it’s much easier to hide behind, “Oh, they’d never do that!” or shout “conspiracy theory!” or to simply play dumb . . . or be, dumb. But I think many Americans might be surprised, even shocked to know how far this thing has progressed, and they might be glad to read about it in the UN’s own doublespeak.

Again, specifics regarding how billions of people are going to be liberated from life never surface, but it doesn’t take much looking around to see what profound help the NWO has in achieving its goals.

Consider Fukushima.

If you think the official reports even approach the actual severity of the ongoing catastrophe, well, that’s what mainstream corporate media (CorpoMedia) is for -- spreading official B.S. Perhaps the most important thing CorpoMedia teaches us is, as W.C. Fields liked to say, “There comes a time in the affairs of man when we must take the bull by the tail, and face the situation.”

Fukushima is certainly, in the words of Dahr Jamail, the “Biggest industrial catastrophe in history.” It’s estimated that, with the three meltdowns, plus exposed “spent” fuel cores, the potential radiation release into the environment could be twenty times that of Chernobyl (Tokyo Electric Power Company officials have finally admitted to more radioactive release than Chernobyl, so imagine what has actually been released already). Almost 1000 square kilometers near Fukushima have been rendered uninhabitable, effectively forever. Some scientists warn that the whole country may become uninhabitable. Mutant rabbits and radioactive whales are already being reported.

It’s been estimated that, following the explosions at Fukushima, the average person in Seattle was inhaling ten “hot particles” per day. It really only takes one hot particle shooting bullets at the chromosomes of nearby cells to sooner or later cause cancer.

At the same time there’s been a 35% spike in infant mortality in such cities as Portland, Boise, San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento, Berkeley, Santa Cruz, and Seattle. As far as being an ally of Agenda 21 population reductions . . . Fukushima is a gift that will just keep on giving, forever. And Fukushima has numerous partners in death.

So many major threats to life on Earth now simmer that a comprehensive listing is challenging. Seems any decent list should also mention that Hydra, Monsanto, and threats to global food supply posed by their genetically modified organisms (GMOs). That’s right, Frankenfoods. Most of us eat them every day and don’t even know . . . yet.

Also on the list . . . the next stage of global economic collapse, originally set in motion by such “high-finance” parasites as Goldman Sachs, that “...great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money” (thank you for the realism, Matt Taibbi, and Rolling Stone). And there’s the endless, expanding and accelerating imperial wars for dwindling resources—contained therein the hideously biocidal use of “depleted” uranium munitions (DU). Check out the explosion of birth defects especially around Fallujah since we gave freedom to the Iraqis.  Remember “OIL” (Operation Iraqi Liberation)?

Deadly piles of nuclear waste around the country are a mountainous safe disposal problem—but lucky US! “Depleted” uranium not only makes superior armor-penetrating projectiles, but we’ve dented the disposal problem by shooting DU weapons all over areas inhabited by people we aim to liberate, and relieve of their resources. Two birds with one stone.

Clash of religions, staged “revolutions”, vaccines and designer diseases, dumbing-down of populations . . . Agenda 21 is amassing many allies; might we call these death apparatuses “the coalition of the willing”? Or is that term under patent?

A potential new member of the coalition is the Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant about twenty minutes from downtown Omaha, Nebraska. Record flooding of the Missouri River caused “catastrophic loss of cooling” to one of the plant’s spent fuel pools on June 7. Apparently a “Level 4” emergency ensued—which would make it one of the worst nuclear accidents in US history. A fire at the plant prompted the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) to declare a “no-fly ban” over the area. Sadly, current information regarding the "event" is sketchy since the Obama Show appears to have ordered a “total and complete” news blackout on the situation. Hardly a peep from CorpoMedia on this one, so far.

Tying the concept of environmentalism to this whole NWO agenda from hell seems preposterous enough, since realistically, Agenda 21 is about as far from true environmentalism as anything could possibly be. So, enriching the very concept of preposterous in classic NWO style would take something as shocking as . . . let’s say, the primary devotees of Agenda 21 being the same psychopaths that annihilate the biosphere for profit more savagely every day—nothing less diabolical would do.

Well, they did it, gave the very term preposterous fabulous new scope—YES, the psychopaths routinely profiting their way toward ruining the biosphere are top trumpeters of Agenda 21! Yet, astonishing as it may seem, “Oh, they’d never do that” peals, if not loudly, plenty clearly from the MAM. Rather reminiscent of 9/11....

Indeed, the same power-mad alpha reptiles most responsible for our DEAD END fossil fuel economy are the teeth, scales and claws behind “Save the Planet!” Agenda 21. Their maniacal consumption of resources, especially energy, cannot be maintained with so many people on their (the “elite’s”) planet competing for their resources. Only a liberation from life of 90% of the human population can safely preserve elite comfort zones. You know, those sprawling “gated communities” (secured compounds) sprinkled with golf courses and castles that seem the main nests for vulgar amounts of private jet and helicopter traffic. Appetite for actually healthy food, pure water, and elite-only consumables often demands more than cumbersome things like trucking. And of course the overclass is bursting with places to go, things to see and exploit.

Takes obscene amounts of starvation, polluted water, disease and liberation from life to support just one billionaire. Disgusting lengths of people misery.  But, on the other hand, how could mere people ever relate to the suffering and despair upper millionaires endure over being less than a billionaire?

Something has to give. Sure looks like it won’t be elite comfort zones. But frankly, the elite are behaving . . . scheming, manipulating, destroying the competition—they’re doing exactly what they always have and always will. No surprise here whatsoever. Psychopaths have no conscience, no “humanity”, only will to power. What is a surprise, though -- maybe it shouldn’t be -- is that we people outnumber them nearly a million to one, but we won’t wake up and smell the tyranny. The ultimate power is ours, yet they are ready to liberate from life 9 out of 10 of us primarily to perpetuate their pathetic and regressive comfort zones (humans should evolve, not devolve) . . . and  through it all the MAM is sleeping.

The difference between what humans are capable of with visionary leadership, and the feudal, regressive, power-blinded ends hammered home by our entrenched pathocracy seem symbolic of heaven, and hell.

To wake up, how many more alarms do we need?

IMF bombshell: Age of America nears end Commentary: China’s economy will surpass the U.S. in 2016

By Brett Arends, MarketWatch
This column has been updated to include a reaction from the IMF.
BOSTON (MarketWatch) — The International Monetary Fund has just dropped a bombshell, and nobody noticed.
For the first time, the international organization has set a date for the moment when the “Age of America” will end and the U.S. economy will be overtaken by that of China.

IMF sees China topping U.S. in 2016

According to the latest IMF official forecasts, China's economy will surpass that of America in real terms in 2016 — just five years from now. Brett Arends looks at the implications for the U.S. dollar and the Treasury market.
And it’s a lot closer than you may think.
According to the latest IMF official forecasts, China’s economy will surpass that of America in real terms in 2016 — just five years from now.
Put that in your calendar.
It provides a painful context for the budget wrangling taking place in Washington right now. It raises enormous questions about what the international security system is going to look like in just a handful of years. And it casts a deepening cloud over both the U.S. dollar and the giant Treasury market, which have been propped up for decades by their privileged status as the liabilities of the world’s hegemonic power.
According to the IMF forecast, which was quietly posted on the Fund’s website just two weeks ago, whoever is elected U.S. president next year — Obama? Mitt Romney? Donald Trump? — will be the last to preside over the world’s largest economy.
Most people aren’t prepared for this. They aren’t even aware it’s that close. Listen to experts of various stripes, and they will tell you this moment is decades away. The most bearish will put the figure in the mid-2020s.

China’s economy will be the world’s largest within five years or so.
But they’re miscounting. They’re only comparing the gross domestic products of the two countries using current exchange rates.
That’s a largely meaningless comparison in real terms. Exchange rates change quickly. And China’s exchange rates are phony. China artificially undervalues its currency, the renminbi, through massive intervention in the markets.

The comparison that really matters

In addition to comparing the two countries based on exchange rates, the IMF analysis also looked to the true, real-terms picture of the economies using “purchasing power parities.” That compares what people earn and spend in real terms in their domestic economies.
Under PPP, the Chinese economy will expand from $11.2 trillion this year to $19 trillion in 2016. Meanwhile the size of the U.S. economy will rise from $15.2 trillion to $18.8 trillion. That would take America’s share of the world output down to 17.7%, the lowest in modern times. China’s would reach 18%, and rising.
Just 10 years ago, the U.S. economy was three times the size of China’s.
Naturally, all forecasts are fallible. Time and chance happen to them all. The actual date when China surpasses the U.S. might come even earlier than the IMF predicts, or somewhat later. If the great Chinese juggernaut blows a tire, as a growing number fear it might, it could even delay things by several years. But the outcome is scarcely in doubt.
This is more than a statistical story. It is the end of the Age of America. As a bond strategist in Europe told me two weeks ago, “We are witnessing the end of America’s economic hegemony.”
We have lived in a world dominated by the U.S. for so long that there is no longer anyone alive who remembers anything else. America overtook Great Britain as the world’s leading economic power in the 1890s and never looked back.
And both those countries live under very similar rules of constitutional government, respect for civil liberties and the rights of property. China has none of those. The Age of China will feel very different. 

14 signs that the collapse of our modern world has already begun

(NaturalNews) A lot of people believe the world as we know it is going to end on December 23, 2012. Nonsense, I say. The far more honest answer is that the end of the world as we know it has already begun. And it doesn't mean the end of the world; it means the closing of one era and the birth of a new one. It is a transition between the ages. This particular transition, however, promises to be the most tumultuous and costly transition humankind has ever seen.

But don't wait around for December 2012 to look for the signs. Here are 14 signs that the world as we know it is unraveling right now. We are living through the end of one era and the birth of a new one. In the future, they'll look back and call this all one moment in history, but when you're living through it, it seems to move forward at almost a snail's pace. But make no mistake: We are living through the opening chapters of the end of the world as we know it, and on the other side of all this will emerge a new world that's very different from the one we know today.

#1 - Tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis - At first it seemed like a fluke; but now it's a pattern. The weather is becoming increasingly extreme. Over 120 tornadoes recently struck the U.S. Midwest. Texas is on fire and suffering through an extreme drought. And where there aren't fires and droughts, there are floods. This is only the beginning... watch for more freak weather over the next 18 months.

#2 - The silence of the bees - Colony Collapse Disorder continues to accelerate across North America. We already know it's being caused in part by chemical pesticides (and possibly worsened by GMOs), but the chemical industry is engaged in a full-on cover-up to deny this truth while the pollinators of our world suffer a devastating population collapse. (

#3 - The failure of nuclear science - The Fukushima catastrophe proves one thing: Scientists are dangerously arrogant in their planning of large-scale projects, and they fail to account for the awesome power of Mother Nature. Nuclear science promised us clean, green energy -- but now it has delivered a silent, invisible poison that's infecting our planet.

#4 - The vicious pursuit of Wikileaks - In an age of such rampant deceit, there is no room for the truth. So those who tell the truth (Wikileaks) are viciously pursued as if they were criminals.

#5 - The rise of the medical police state - The armed SWAT raids on Maryanne Godboldo in Detroit are only the beginning ( The truth is that the medical system uses guns to force its vaccines and chemotherapy onto children and teens across America. The medical system has become so utterly useless, corrupt and dangerous that it must actually invoke guns in peoples' faces just to "convince" people to take its medicine. This is a gunpoint-enforced medical monopoly that exists as a threat to our health and our freedoms.

#6 - The increasing frequency of food shortages and crop failures - Notice the spike in food prices? That's just the beginning: Food prices will continue to skyrocket in the years ahead due to extreme weather, the loss of pollinators and the global contamination of crops by GMOs. Real food is becoming increasingly scarce in our world. You might want to think about starting a home garden...

#7 - The runaway destruction of the world by energy companies - The radioactive fallout from Fukushima isn't the only way in which energy companies are destroying our world: Don't forget about the Deepwater Horizon and the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico -- a spill that isn't over, by the way. They're still spraying Corexit in the Gulf one year later!

#8 - The continued GMO contamination of our planet - This may be the worst chapter in the coming collapse: The widespread genetic pollution of our planet through GMOs. This is a crime against nature and against humanity. It is a "gene spill" that may never be contained as it spreads its deadly DNA across the world's food crops, leading to crop failures and starvation ( The use of GMOs is the closest thing to "Satanic" that you'll find in modern agriculture. The agenda behind this is pure evil.

#9 - The tyranny and criminal crackdowns targeting real food (raw milk) - When you can't even sell honest farm food to your neighbors without being targeted and arrested by the cops, something is terribly wrong with the world. But this is happening today, all across America. Now the feds are even targeting the Amish! (

#10 - The escalation of the counterfeiting of the money supply - In a failed economic system approaching collapse, the moronic leaders can only think of "solutions" that actually accelerate their own downfall. The runaway counterfeiting of money by the Federal Reserve (with its "quantitative easing" and other counterfeit methods) is a classic sign that the end of our current system is fast approaching. The economic insanities are obvious to anyone who can still do math.

#11 - The plummeting intelligence of the masses - One of the most disturbing signs that we're already in the collapse is the great dumbing-down of the masses. The drooling, CNN-watching television zombies who dominate our landscape offer absolutely nothing of value to the world. They are the "mindless consumers" who get vaccinated, watch television and eat processed, pasteurized junk food. They're on psychiatric meds and believe everything the government tells them. Most of these people, of course, won't make it through the collapse.

#12 - The complete and utter fabrication of the mainstream news - Much of the mainstream news is now utterly and completely fabricated these days: The reporting on Obama's long-form birth certificate; the news about the war in Libya; the coverage of the economy and the U.S. debt... it's all so utterly false and unbelievable that an intelligent person watching the news can't help but explode with laughter. It is a sign of this collapse that the information sources relied upon by the masses are unable to report the truth anymore and must resort to weaving politically expedient fictions on everything from health care and medicine to the fate of the U.S. dollar itself.

#13 - The ongoing pharmaceutical pollution of our world - Beyond the GMO contamination and the radiation contamination of our world, we are also experiencing the mass pharmaceutical contamination of our planet. It's not just the pharma factories that dump their products into the rivers (; it's also the fact that well over half the population is now taking drugs almost daily, and those drugs pass right through their bodies and end up in the water supply where they contaminate the fish ( Even beyond that, the drugs end up in the human sewage sludge that's packaged and sold as "organic soil!" (

#14 - The radioactive contamination of the global food supply - Here's one that's really insidious: The global food supply is now contaminated with the radioactive fallout from Fukushima. We're told the levels are "low," but we're not told the truth of how radioactive cesium isotopes persist in the food supply for centuries. How is the human race going to survive its exposure to CT scans, radioactive food, chest X-rays, TSA body scanners and even the secret DHS mobile X-ray vans that can penetrate your body with X-rays as you're walking into a football stadium? The total radiation burden on the human race is now reaching a point of mass infertility. That may be the whole idea, actually.

It's accelerating, too

December, 2012 may be a useful date as some sort of mid-point in the crisis, or perhaps as a trigger date for some further acceleration of society's rapid unraveling. But make no mistake: We are already living in the collapse of our modern world. And you have a front-row seat! (Exciting, huh?)

Think about what's happening around you these days. These are the signs of the last, desperate clutches of a civilization built on utterly unsustainable practices that don't value life on our world. These are the End Times of the corporate oligarchy; the monopolistic for-profit corporation machine that destroyed everything in our world in exchange for a slightly higher quarterly earnings report.

In the quest for more money, humanity has sacrificed its food supply, its pollinators, it's oceans, forests and soils. Greed-driven humans have used other humans as medical experiments and cannon fodder. We have created wars to sell more bombs, and we've invented disease to sell psychiatric chemicals.

These are the practices of a failed civilization... and one whose days are numbered. Watching it all crumble is far more interesting than watching it continue its destructive ways, of course, because those of us paying attention realize a future civilization must rise up in the place of this one after the collapse.

Say goodbye to the false power of institutions

It would be nice if our future leaders remembered the importance of liberty and personal responsibility, of course. The answer to all the world's problems, it turns out, is freedom -- freedom in medicine, freedom in economics and freedom from government tyranny.

Because, let's face it: The root cause of most these problems that are bringing down our world right now is bad government. It is bad government (Big Government) that approved the GMOs. Bad government enforced the medical monopoly and allowed the pesticides to kill the honeybees. Bad government drove us into inescapable debt and costly foreign wars. Bad government outlawed health freedom and protected the monopolistic practices of the food companies, drug companies and chemical companies.

The downfall of modern human civilization is, as you probably guessed, also the downfall of the very idea that Big Government creates a better society. Because if there's one idea that needs to stay dead after the collapse, it's the idea that We the People somehow need another group of people (government workers) to live off our hard work while hounding us with their false authority, directing every little detail of our lives.

What we need in our world isn't more government, but more freedom. If we had freedom, integrity and personal responsibility, we wouldn't even be facing the global collapse that has already begun. But alas, the human race is an infant species and it must learn some lessons the hard way, it seems.

This lesson should be long remembered: If you let the corporations, the banks and the governments run your economies, your farms and your lives, they will enslave you and steal your future while you sleep; they will inject silent poisons into the very world around you until you awaken one day to find that all you created has been destroyed. They will promise you paradise but deliver only death. Beware of any entity that is not a living person -- no government, no institution, no corporation has a soul, nor a heart, nor a conscience. They are forces of organized destruction that decimate those things we hold dear while delivering to us things that will only enslave us or harm us.

Beware the corporation; the government; the non-profit institution working as a front group for private industry. Never allow yourself to be ruled over by any institution which exists only as a fictional construct organized from the projection of human greed.

And be ready for the acceleration of the collapse. Because if you are reading this, you are the future of the human race. You have a duty to stay alive, keep your genes intact, and be around to help create the Next Society after this one crumbles into history.

Nuclear plant workers release unknown amount of radioactive tritium into Mississippi River

by Ethan A. Huff |

Workers at the Grand Gulf Nuclear Plant in Port Gibson, Miss., last Thursday released a large amount of radioactive tritium directly into the Mississippi River, according to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and experts are currently trying to sort out the situation. An investigation is currently underway to determine why the tritium was even present in standing water found in an abandoned unit of the plant, as well as how much of this dangerous nuclear byproduct ended up getting dumped into the river. Many also want to know why workers released the toxic tritium before conducting proper tests.

The Mississippi Natchez Democrat reports that crews first discovered the radioactive water in the plant’s Unit 2 turbine building after heavy rains began hitting the area last week. Unit 2 was a partially-constructed, abandoned structure that should not have contained any radioactive materials, let alone tritium, which is commonly used to manufacture nuclear weapons and test atomic bombs (

According to reports, alarms began to go off as workers were releasing the radioactive storm water into the river, which engaged the stop flow on the release pump. Neither NRC nor plant officials know how much tritium was released into the river during this release.

"Although concentrations of tritium exceeded EPA drinking water limits, the release should not represent a hazard to public health because of its dilution in the river," insisted Lara Uselding, public affairs officer at NRC Region IV, to reporters.

German Central Bank Admits that Credit is Created Out of Thin Air


Most people think that banks lend solely from their base of deposits. Some also know that with fractional reserve banking, they can loan out many times more than they actually have in reserves.

But very few people - with the exception of those in the banking industry and financial experts - know where credit really comes from.

Germany's central bank - the Deutsche Bundesbank (German for German Federal Bank) - has admitted in writing that banks create credit out of thin air.

As the Bundesbank states in a publication entitled "Money and Monetary Policy" (pages 88-93; translation provided by Google translate, but German speaker and economic writer Festan von Geldern confirmed the basic translation)
4.4 Creation of the banks money

Money is created by "money creation". Both [central banks] and private commercial banks can create money. In the euro monetary system [money creation] arises mainly through the granting of loans, as well as the fact that central banks or commercial banks to buy assets such as gold, foreign currencies, real estate or securities. If the central bank granted a loan from a commercial bank and crediting the amount in the account of the bank at the central bank, created “central bank money.”***
Money creation by commercial banks

The commercial banks can create money itself, the so-called bank money. The money creation process through which commercial banks can be explained by the related postings: If a commercial bank to a customer a loan, they booked in its balance sheet as an asset against a loan receivable the client - for example, 100,000. At the same time, the bank writes down the customer's checking account, which is run on the liabilities of the bank's balance sheet, 100,000 euros good. This credit increases the deposits of customers on its current account - it creates deposit money, which increases the money supply.
In other words, money is created as book-entry by purchasing assets or entering credits on the left side of the balance-sheet and corresponding deposits on the right side. In other words, credit is created out of thin air.
Frontiers of money creation

The above description might leave the impression that the commercial banks are able to draw an infinite amount of money in bank accounts. If this were really so, this could be inflationary. The central bank therefore takes effect on the extent of lending and money creation. It requires commercial banks to hold the reserve.
As I've previously pointed out, the Federal Reserve is taking the same tack, creating conditions that guarantee that American banks will have huge excess reserves so as to prevent inflation. Back to the publication:
Central banks, commercial banks can typically obtain only by the fact that the central bank granted them credit. For these loans, commercial banks have to pay the central bank interest rate. Increase this rate, the central bank, the "prime rate", the commercial banks usually raise their part, the rates at which they lend themselves. There will be a general rise in interest rates. This, however, dampens the tendency of businesses and households, the demand for loans. By raising or lowering the key interest rate the central bank can thus influence the business sector demand for credit - and thus on Lending and bank money creation.

The commercial banks need central bank money to cover not only for the reserve, but also to the cash needs of its customers. Each bank customer may be credit in the bank account into cash to pay off. If the stocks of the banks in cash to be in short supply, the central bank can create only remedy. Because only they are permitted to bring additional notes in circulation. To meet the cash needs of its clients, the commercial bank must therefore include, where appropriate, with the central bank for a loan. This leads to the creation of central bank money. The so-purchased assets for central bank money can pay off the commercial bank in cash let. Thus, the cash is in circulation: from the central bank to commercial banks and from these to the bank customers.

Central Bank money is also to cover the non-cash payments are required: a customer transfers money from its credit to a customer at another bank, this results in many cases led to the sending bank central bank needs to transfer money to the receiving bank. The central banks then moves from one bank to another.


The commercial banks can use the surplus of central bank money and to award additional credits to businesses and households. As previously described, arises from the award of additional credits additional demand for central bank money - which can be covered in this special situation of great uncertainty among banks by the existing excess liquidity. The abundant supply of liquidity relief, a bank that wants to provide a loan, from the traditional consideration of how much money they need after the award of credit is, how it is constituted, and at what cost. Using the so-called money creation multiplier can be estimated how large the potential for additional Credit limit is.
Do you get it now?

Private banks don't make loans because they have extra deposits lying around. The process is the exact opposite:
(1) Each private bank "creates" loans out of thin air by entering into binding loan commitments with borrowers (of course, corresponding liabilities are created on their books at the same time. But see below); then

(2) If the bank doesn't have the required level of reserves, it simply borrows them after the fact from the central bank (or from another bank);

(3) The central bank, in turn, creates the money which it lends to the private banks out of thin air.
It's not just Bernanke ... the central banks and their owners - the private commercial banks - have been running the printing presses for hundreds of years.

Of course, as I pointed out Tuesday, Bernanke is pushing to eliminate all reserve requirements in the U.S. If Bernanke has his way, American banks won't even have to borrow from the Fed or other banks after the fact to have reserves. Instead, they can just enter into as many loans as they want and create endless money out of thin air (within Basel I and Basel II's capital requirements - but since governments are backstopping their giant banks by overtly and covertly throwing bailout money, guarantees and various insider opportunities at them, capital requirements are somewhat meaningless).

The system is no longer based on assets (and remember that the giant banks have repeatedly become insolvent) It is based on creating new debts, and then backfilling from there.

It is - in fact - a monopoly system. Specifically, only private banks and their wholly-owned central banks can run printing presses. Governments and people do not have access to the printing presses (with some limited exceptions, like North Dakota), and thus have to pay the monopolists to run them (in the form of interest on the loans).

See this and this.

At the very least, the system must be changed so that it is not - by definition - perched atop a mountain of debt, and the monetary base must be maintained by an authority that is accountable to the people.

Here's a translation by Scott A:

Money Creation by Banks

Money comes into existence through "money creation". Both state central banks as well as private commercial banks are able to create money. In the Euro-system, money comes into existence primarily through the origination of loans, and additionally through the acquisition of assets by central or commercial banks, such as gold, foreign currencies, real estate or securities. When the central bank extends a loan to a commercial bank and credits the amount to the [commercial] bank's account at the central bank, then "central bank money" comes into existence. Commercial banks need this in order to fulfill their fractional reserve requirements, to satisfy the demand for cash, and for their payments transactions.

Money Creation by Commercial Banks

>> Commercial banks create money through loan originations <<

Commercial banks can also create money - so-called fiat money. The process of money creation by commercial banks can be explained by the associated bookkeeping entries: When a commercial bank extends a loan to a customer, the bank makes an entry for a credit claim against the customer on the assets side of its balance sheet, for, say, 100,000 Euros. The bank simultaneously credits 100,000 Euros to the customer's checking [OR: current] account, which is entered on the liabilities side of the bank's balance sheet. This credit entry increases the deposits in the customer's account. Money comes into existence, which increases the money supply.

Fiat money created in this manner can be used by the bank to purchase goods and to pay for services. At first glance one might think that the loan customer has become richer via this creation of money. However, this is not the case, as the customer's increased balance which was created by the borrowing is offset by an obligation in an equal amount, namely the requirement to pay back the loan. In addition, the customer must continually pay interest.

The requirement to pay interest provides a strong incentive to take out a loan only in such cases where the associated resource is actually necessary. For a business, this means that what it does with the loan has to be productive, so that it's able to realize a return which at least covers the interest expense. The origination of loans and the associated creation of money lead in this way to investments, increased production, and the creation of economic value. However, this value creation is not attributable to the money creation act itself, but rather to the productive, value-creating usage of the loan, motivated by the interest.

Loan originations and fiat money creation increase the assets and liabilities of both the borrower and the commercial bank by the exact same amounts. And the bank also does not make a profit through the act of fiat money creation considered in and of itself. But the bank does earn a commission from the loan as well as from the continual interest income. This potential for profit is offset, however, by the risk that the customer might not pay back the loan. Then the bank suffers a loss. This risk provides an incentive for the bank to exercise caution when originating loans and creating fiat money. Once created, money circulates in the economy. Either it flows from account to account, when for example payments are made via transfers. Or it is withdrawn in cash from the account and then goes from hand to hand in the form of banknotes and coins. If the loan is paid off and not replaced by a new one, then the money created by it is withdrawn from circulation. In industry jargon, this is referred to as "money destruction".

Limits to Money Creation

>> The central bank can influence the volume of loan origination and money creation <<

The above description could give the impression that commercial banks have the ability to create an infinite amount of money. If that were actually the case, then it could have an inflationary effect. For this reason, the central bank exerts some control over the volume of loan origination and money creation: it requires the commercial banks to maintain fractional reserves. To illustrate this concept, the simple example from the preceding section will be continued (in reality loan originations are a bit more complicated): if the commercial bank has increased its customer deposits by 100,000 Euros by means of the loan origination, then it must also increase its fractional reserve deposits at the central bank. Since the fractional reserve rate in the Euro-system is currently 2 percent, in this case the commercial bank needs an additional 2,000 Euros in central bank money.

Commercial banks can typically create central bank money only by having a loan extended to them from the central bank. Commercial banks must pay interest to the central bank on these loans. If the central bank increases the interest rate - the "prime rate" - then the central banks in turn generally raise the interest rates on the loans which they themselves originate. This leads to an overall increase in the level of interest rates. This, however, has a tendency to dampen the demand from businesses and households for loans. By raising or lowering the prime rate, the central bank can thereby exert an influence on the economy's demand for loans - and also on loan origination and money creation.

Commercial banks need central bank money not only for their fractional reserves, but also to cover the cash needs of their customers. Every customer can have his bank account deposit paid out in cash. If banks' cash holdings become tight, then only the central bank can take remedial action - as only it is authorized to put additional banknotes into circulation: from the central bank to the commercial banks, and from them to the bank customers.

Central bank money is additionally used for the settlement of non-cash payments transactions. If a customer transfers money from his account to a customer at another bank, this often leads to a situation where the sending bank must transfer central bank money to the receiving bank. Central bank money then moves from one bank to another.


Commercial banks can use their surplus central bank money to originate additional loans to businesses and households. As described above, the origination of additional loans gives rise to an additional need for central bank money - which in this special situation of great uncertainty among banks can be covered by the excess liquidity already in existence. Overabundant provision of liquidity relieves a bank from the considerations it would otherwise normally make about HOW MUCH CENTRAL BANK MONEY IT WILL NEED *AFTER* ORIGINATING LOANS, how it should be obtained, and at what cost. With the help of the so-called money creation multiplier, it's possible to estimate how big the potential for additional loan originations is. [emphasis added]

By Alexander Higgins:

The head of the CIA admitted yesterday that there was no live video footage of the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound as further doubts emerged about the US version of events, basically proving several days of news reports were lies.

For days now several officials inside the US Government and several corporate media outlets have reported that President Obama and other US officials watched live video footage of the Osama Bin Laden assassination raid inside the situation room at the White House.
Several Sources and News Organizations Reported Obama Watched Live Video Of The Bin Laden Raid From The White House Situation Room

All of those stories — LIES! CIA Chief Admits There Was NO Live Video Footage Of Osama Bin Laden Compound Raid

The head of the CIA who was responsible for delivering the live video feed to the White House situation room admitted in a PBS interview there was no live footage of the raid.

The Head Of The CIA Admitted yesterday there was no video footage of the raid
Yes, the  stories we have been hearing for days, lies. The dramatic media reports, told over and over again in graphic detail to make it sink into our heads that Bin Laden has finally been killed, nothing more than sick imagination of those writing the script for this massive propaganda piece.
That’s correct, newspeak right out of a chapter of Orwell’s  1984. All lies planted into our high by a lying federal government.  Obama and all of the other officials who told all of our corporate media outlets they watch live video of Osama Bin Laden being assassinated, an intriguing story that never happened.

Osama bin Laden dead: Blackout during raid on bin Laden compound

The head of the CIA admitted yesterday that there was no live video footage of the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound as further doubts emerged about the US version of events.

By Steven Swinford 10:25PM BST 04 May 2011
Leon Panetta, director of the CIA, revealed there was a 25 minute blackout during which the live feed from cameras mounted on the helmets of the US special forces was cut off.
A photograph released by the White House appeared to show the President and his aides in the situation room watching the action as it unfolded. In fact they had little knowledge of what was happening in the compound.
In an interview with PBS, Mr Panetta said: “Once those teams went into the compound I can tell you that there was a time period of almost 20 or 25 minutes where we really didn’t know just exactly what was going on. And there were some very tense moments as we were waiting for information.
“We had some observation of the approach there, but we did not have direct flow of information as to the actual conduct of the operation itself as they were going through the compound.”
Mr Panetta also told the network that the US Navy Seals made the final decision to kill bin Laden rather than the president.
“To be frank, I don’t think he had a lot of time to say anything. It was a firefight going up that compound. And by the time they got to the third floor and found bin Laden, I think it – this was all split-second action on the part of the Seals.”
The President only knew the mission was successful after the Navy Seals commander heard the word “Geronimo” on the radio, a code word from commandos reporting that they had killed bin Laden.
[...] According to Pakistani authorities one of bin Laden’s daughter’s, who was present during the raid, claimed that her father was captured alive before he was killed.
There was also growing doubt about the US claims that Pakistan’s intelligence agencies involved in the raid.
Lieutenant General Asad Durrani, former head of the ISI, Pakistan’s intelligence service, said it was “inconceivable” that his government was unaware of the US raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound.
He claimed his country was forced to deny any knowledge of the raid to avoid a domestic backlash.  [...]
Lieutenant General Durrani, however, said that the denial was a “political” maneuver by the intelligence services to avoid claims that they were working too closely with the US.
So, the story about watching a live feed in this photo was a total lie, and this photo…

Was staged!

Bottom line here is either this entire raid never happened, they didn’t kill Osama Bin Laden, or the US Seals killed Osama and the other alleged “terrorists” at the scene in some manner so hideous that politicians and bureaucrats in this photo are afraid will come out and be tied to them. For example, not one wants to be party to having a building full of “alleged terrorists” surrendering and then taking them down stairs in front of a group of woman and children were they were executed on the order of the President or some other high level official in the room.
Yet this is exactly the scenario that Bin Laden’s 12-year-old daughter, who was in the Bin Laden compound during the raid, has told news reporters happened. She says the US Navy Seals captured Osama Bin Laden alive and then later executed him in front of his entire family. Looking at the photos of the other dead “terrorists” on the scene it appears every one of dead men was bleeding from the back of their heads like they were forced onto their knees and shot execution style.
Most in the CT crowd think this never even happened in the first place and it is all one big psych op because OBL was killed years ago.
The idea that this never happened makes some sense here as well. Why would all of the officials in the photo above allow newspapers to run stories for days stating they were watching a live video feed when they never were? Why?

FEMA to confiscate food from local farms in emergencies?

(NaturalNews) - Since our nation's founding the federal government has, in times of emergency, claimed extra-constitutional powers and authority. Under the guise of acting in the public's best interests, Washington has taken away privacy rights, free speech, and habeas corpus, among others. There's no reason to think it wouldn't happen again.

With that in mind, would it surprise you to find out that if disaster strikes in your part of the country, the federal government is prepared to take over local food supplies, in part by confiscating farms?

It shouldn't, says "Farmer Brad," a Texas-based farmer who said in an interview about food security with Mike Adams for Natural News TV that during Hurricane Katrina, an inventory of local farms and what they produced was conducted by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

"FEMA was doing an inventory of all the farms around ... metroplexes," he said, which included nearby Houston and other large cities. "They started calling up farms and wanted to know where farms were, and they were being prepared to maybe take food if they need to, from farms, you know, for a crisis like that."

Brad, of, said that while the agency didn't come right out and say they would confiscate crops and cattle, "they were making food assessments, you know, what is in the local food shed in a metroplex."

He said the agency's assessment took into account a number of potential emergencies and disasters, including spikes in fuel prices or even sudden disruptions - anything that might hinder or prevent the delivery of food to stores. Such scenarios would also lead to dramatic increases in food prices as well, Brad said.

"The distribution system for food is so fragile, you know, and there's only enough food in these grocery stores to last, literally, for just a couple of days," he said, noting that store shelves during Katrina were stripped bare "within hours."

Worse, Brad said, because of mass evacuations from the big cities, traffic choked local roads, making even short-distance travel impossible. He said he and his family couldn't even get into town to go to the store.

"We heard all kinds of stories from our local residents about what it was like - people camping out in the Walmart parking lot; grocery stores were empty; food wasn't coming in," he said. "We had people from 90 miles away from Houston and some other metroplexes coming into our town because we were one of the few that still had gas."

Brad said that FEMA didn't send agents to farms but made phone calls instead asking, "what are you producing, how much land do you have, wanting to get the details of the local food sheds in the area." He said he and local farms were voluntarily providing the information but that the food security aspect of the questions made them all "a little suspicious."

As people flee the large cities, Brad says most of them will be unprepared and that his farm - through theft or through confiscation - will likely be "wiped out."
