Shades of Kent State ...

A compilation of events on September 24, 2009 (& well into the evening) showing police in riot gear moving against University of Pittsburgh students & going into dormitories with little-to-no provocation. The police kept moving against the students even after the G-20 summit had been concluded for the evening & there was very little (if any) protesting going on. Pepper spray, tear gas, "bean bag" bullets & sonic weapons were used against the herded & trapped students -- the majority of whom were innocent bystanders just trying to understand what was going on.

Money Facts (A supplement to "A Primer on Money", 1964)

"Money Facts" is a is a series of questions and answers on the basic workings of our monetary system. It is a supplement to "A Primer on Money" and is designed to highlight in question and answer form the basic points brought out in the "Primer."

48. Who gave the Federal Reserve the power to create the money necessary to cover its checks? The Congress. Because this power to create money is given by the Constitution to Congress, only the Congress can delegate this power.

11. Do private bank interests influence the Federal Reserve policy? Yes.

Obama’s Hell-Ride to War on Iran

Faced with the uncomfortable and politically unacceptable reality that there exists no evidence that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapon, confirmed by his own intelligence community, President Obama has taken a page from the book of his predecessors FDR, LBJ, GWB, and so on: he simply made something really scary-sounding up to justify his push toward war.

Primary on Money (1964)

"Primer on Money" explains in simple, everyday language how our monetary system works and indicates where in needs reform. This is a Congressional Subcommittee Report authored by Congressman Wright Patman.

Congressman Wright Patman, Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee, said in a speech on the House floor in 1967: In the U.S. today, we have in effect two governments. We have the duly constituted government, then we have an independent, uncontrolled and uncoordinated government in the Federal Reserve, operating the money powers which are reserved to congress by the Constitution.

The FBI is stalking you...even though the DHS told them not to.

In other words, the FBI is keeping track of a lot of information about private citizens and obtaining it without warrants. Moreover, the Bureau wants to quadruple the staff of the tracking program to allow them to better keep an eye on all the terrorists this is supposedly going to catch.

Undercover agents gave man chances to back out of plot to bomb Springfield federal courthouse
GateHouse News Service
Fri Sep 25, 2009, SPRINGFIELD -

I Shall Resist

You may take the last strip of my land,
Feed my youth to prison cells.
You may plunder my heritage,
You may burn my books, my poems
Or feed my flesh to the dogs.
You may spread a web of terror
On the roofs of my village,
O Enemy of the Sun,
I shall not compromise
And to the last pulse in my veins
I shall resist.

You may put out the light in my eyes.
You may deprive me of my mother’s kisses.
You may curse my father, my People,
You may distort my history,
You may deprive my children of a smile
And of life’s necessities.
You may fool my friends with a borrowed face.
You may build walls of hatred around me.
You may glue my eyes to humiliations,
O Enemy of the Sun,
I shall not compromise
And to the last pulse in my veins
I shall resist.

The Sun could be heading into period of extended calm

We were expecting to reach the next solar maxima around 2011–2012. However, space weather experts have been surprised over the past few years to report very few signs that the number of sunspots has been picking up since the last solar minimum in 2006. This has prompted some space scientists to forecast that we are heading towards another prolonged spell of quiet sunspot activity, the last of which was observed between 1645 and 1715 in a period called the "Maunder Minimum".

Meteorite Impacts Expose Ice on Mars

Meteorites recently striking Mars have exposed deposits of frozen water not far below the Martian surface. Pictures of the impact sites taken by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter show that frozen water may be available to explorers of the Red Planet at lower latitudes than previously thought.

Admit It:The World Has Gone Mad

Justice,my friends,goes two ways and nothing should ever be preferred over it – no matter what the consequence.

The nationalist members of our society have poisoned the well of justice for far too long and all of these occupations must stop,now.

If we want to be the shining beacon of hope and integrity then we must first have the courage to create change before change creates us.

Why we can all stop worrying about 'Global Warming' for a bit

Yet in Geneva, Latif was forced to admit that all those An-Inconvenient-Truth-style fantasy projections showing global temperatures rising inexorably with C02 levels were wrong. The world is getting cooler, not warming. It will continue to cool, Latif reckons, till 2020 or possibly 2030. By how much he doesn’t know: “The jury is still out.”

Which begs the rather obvious question: if the IPCC’s doomsday computer models didn’t predict this cooling phase, how can we be sufficiently confident in their other assertions to start basing major economic and social policy decisions on them?

Forecast: A cooling trend on climate change

The United Nations is pulling out the “big guns” in an attempt to create a climate of urgency about climate change so that the meeting of over one hundred world leaders in Copenhagen some 75 days from now can produce an agreement to replace to failed Kyoto accord.

Nature, however, is not co-operating. Average global temperature is rising at 1.40C per century, not the 3.90C indicated by the IPPC models. We are in the seventh year of global cooling. Sea levels, despite messages to the contrary, are rising at normal rates – eight inches per century – much less than the IPPC models suggested. There has been no significant rise in sea levels over the last four years. Arctic sea ice, currently in its summer state, is more extensive in 2009 than it was in 2007 and 2008.

Deception a dangerous basis for presidency

THE EDITOR'S COLUMN: Deception a dangerous basis for presidency
Tom Skoch, September 20, 2009 Ohio
Nothing aggravates me more than having someone try to decieve me. Along with many other Americans, I feel that I am being lied to and "weasel worded" by President Obama. He comes from a background of radical community organizing in the school of Saul Alinsky. It was Alinsky who advocated that the powerless seize power from the powerful by insinuating themselves into the established system and, while maintaining a deception, rise to positions of power from which they could then bring about radical change. That method was laid out in Alinsky's book "Rules for Radicals."

Top 10 Americans for monetary reform: #8: W.J. Bryan: 3-time Dem. Presidential candidate

Bryan’s political populism centered on American monetary policy. He supported an expansion of the money supply in response to a national depression in the 1890’s by rejecting the gold standard, a limitation on currency based on a fractional reserve of gold holdings. We discussed Peter Cooper’s presidential ambition with the Greenback Party, who campaigned for “greenbacks” to be created directly by the federal government for public projects and jobs. This policy compromised into the “free silver” movement to include silver with gold as a legal fractional backing for money.

What If Everyone in the World Wanted a 1-ounce Gold Coin?

If we're right about where the price of gold is headed, the general public will someday clamor to buy all things gold. While gold stocks will be where the real leverage is, the rush will start with gold itself. As a gold editor, I have a very natural question: is there enough to go around? .....

Zelaya's Return... How Much Repression Will Hillary Clinton Support in Honduras?

Now that President Zelaya has returned to Honduras, the coup government – after first denying that he was there – has unleashed a wave of repression to prevent people from gathering support for their elected president. This is how U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton described the first phase of this new repression last night in a press conference:

“I think that the government imposed a curfew, we just learned, to try to get people off the streets so that there couldn't be unforeseen developments.”

Dallas bomb plot suspect speaks little English, but tells court he understands charges

A 19-year-old Jordanian citizen accused of trying to blow up a downtown Dallas skyscraper told a federal magistrate this morning at his first court appearance that he understands the charges against him.

Hosam Maher Husein Smadi, who was provided a court-appointed attorney, is charged with trying to detonate a weapon of mass destruction. He is expected to enter a plea at a later hearing.

Smadi was arrested Thursday after he parked a vehicle laden with government-supplied fake explosives in the underground parking garage of Fountain Place, a 60-story tower at Ross Avenue at Field Street, authorities said.

Congressman Sherman: "Geithner’s Proposal is 'TARP on Steroids' "

Paul Volcker and senior Harvard economist Jeffrey Miron both testified to Congress this week that the government is trying to make bailouts for the giant banks permanent.

Writing Wednesday in The Hill , Congressman Brad Sherman pointed out that :

In my opinion, Geithner’s proposal is “TARP on steroids.” Section 1204 of the proposal [the proposal being the "Resolution Authority for Large, Interconnected Financial Companies Act of 2009"] allows the executive branch to use taxpayer money to make loans to, or invest in, the largest financial institutions to avoid a systemic risk to the economy.
