Plan to Let Drug Cartels Buy Guns in U.S. Approved at ‘Highest Levels' of DOJ

CNS News
Friday, June 17, 2011


(CNSNews.com) - Instead of trying to stop the flow of weapons from the U.S. to Mexican drug cartels, the Obama administration’s “Operation Fast and Furious” deliberately allowed it to happen. Moreover, “This shift in strategy was known and authorized at the highest levels of the Justice Department,” says a report by congressional staffers.

“Through both the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona and ‘Main Justice’ headquarters in Washington, D.C., the Department closely monitored and supervised the activities of the ATF,” the report says.

On Wednesday, Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, convened a hearing to determine who ultimately authorized the Operation Fast and Furious, who knew about it – “and why it took the murder of a 40-year old border patrol agent and a congressional inquiry before administration officials cancelled it.”

Operation Fast and Furious, conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, was launched in 2009 in an effort to track the flow of guns from U.S. straw purchasers to Mexican cartels.
ATF agents who complained about the recklessness of allowing cartel associates to buy guns in Arizona were reprimanded, the congressional report said.

David Voth, a supervisor at the ATF field division in Phoenix, told complaining agents to back off: “Whether you care or not people of rank and authority at HQ are paying close attention to this case and they also believe we (Phoenix field division) are doing what they envisioned the Southwest Border Groups doing,” Voth wrote in an e-mail dated March 12, 2010. “It may sound cheesy, but we are ‘The Tip of the ATF spear’ when it comes to Southwest Border Firearms Trafficking.

“If you don’t think this is fun you’re in the wrong line of work – period,” the Voth e-mail continued: “This is the pinnacle of U.S. law enforcement techniques. After this, the tool box is empty. Maybe the Maricopa County Jail is hiring detention officers and you can get paid $30,000 (instead of $100,000) to serve lunch to inmates all day.”

The Obamas behave as if they were sharecroppers living in a trailer and hit the Powerball.

At a time when many Americans can barely afford Burger King and a movie, Obama boasts of spending a billion dollars on his re-election campaign. Questioned at a recent appearance about the spiraling fuel costs, Obama said, "Get used to it" - and with an insouciant grin and chortle, he told another person at the event, who complained about the effect high fuel prices were having on his family, to "get a more fuel-efficient car."

The Obamas behave as if they were sharecroppers living in a trailer and hit the Powerball, but instead of getting new tires for their trailer and a new pickup truck, they moved to Washington. And instead of making possum pie, with goats and chickens in the front yard, they're spending and living large at taxpayer expense - opulent vacations, gala balls, resplendent dinners and exclusive command performances at the White House, grand date nights, golf, basketball, more golf, exclusive resorts and still more golf.

Expensive, ill-fitting and ill-chosen wigs and fashions hardly befit the first lady of the United States. The Obamas have behaved in every way but presidential - which is why it's so offensive when we hear Obama say, in order "to restore fiscal responsibility, we all need to share in the sacrifice - but we don't have to sacrifice the America we believe in."

The American people have been sacrificing; it is he and his family who are behaving as if they've never had two nickels to rub together - and now, having hit the mother lode, they're going to spend away their feelings of inadequacy at the taxpayers' expense.

U.S. Government Formally Drops Charges Against Osama Bin Laden

SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS!!!

June 18, 2011

BREAKING NEWS!!!!  BREAKING NEWS!!!! BREAKING NEWS!!!! BREAKING NEWS!!!! 

According to a CNN report, the U.S. Government has now dropped criminal charges against Osama Bin Laden!

The report claims that positive proof of Bin Laden's death has been confirmed through facial recognition, and DNA analysis, stemming from the raid on his mansion in Pakistan back on May 2nd, 2011.

Although the claims that Osama's death in the raid in Pakistan are supposedly "officially confirmed", there is plenty of evidence to show that Bin laden has been dead possibly since 2001, and that the raid was a propaganda move to support the war on terror, justify torture, and to boost Obama's popularity ratings.

A Federal court in Manhattan disposed of a 1998 indictment against Bin Laden where he was charged with murder, and conspiracy to kill Americans for his role in attacking U.S. embassies in East Africa in 1998.

According to the same article, it is procedure to drop indictments on defendants who die, or are convicted on other unrelated charges.

The article also claims:
"Other pending criminal indictments will probably be amended in coming weeks or months to remove bin Laden's name, including his self-admitted role as mastermind of the terrorist attacks on Washington and New York on September 11, 2001."
If you go to the FBI's official website however, you will notice that Osama Bin Laden is not charged with the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers or WTC 7.





Both Osama Bin Laden, and the organization Known as "Al Qaeda" are creations of the CIA, and now that "Tim Osman"(Osama's CIA name) has served his purpose, the globalists have wiped his name from the list of the guilty, so as to eliminate any U.S. guilt by association in connection to the terrorist attacks they were so willing to tie to him during his life.

IMF cuts U.S. growth forecast, warns of crisis

Reuters
June 17, 2011

The International Monetary Fund cut its forecast for U.S. economic growth on Friday and warned Washington and debt-ridden European countries that they are “playing with fire” unless they take immediate steps to reduce their budget deficits.

The IMF, in its regular assessment of global economic prospects, said bigger threats to growth had emerged since its previous report in April, citing the euro zone debt crisis and signs of overheating in emerging market economies.

The Washington-based global lender forecast that U.S. gross domestic product would grow a tepid 2.5 percent this year and 2.7 percent in 2012. In its forecast just two months ago, it had expected 2.8 percent and 2.9 percent growth, respectively.

June 16, 2011


Read the article: http://www.infowars.com/u-s-invasion-of-libya-set-for-october/

Infowars.com has received alarming reports from within the ranks of military stationed at Ft. Hood, Texas confirming plans to initiate a full-scale U.S.-led ground invasion in Libya and deploy troops by October.

The source stated that additional Special Forces are headed to Libya in July, with a Calvary Division (heavy armor) and three corps deploying in late October and early November. Initial numbers are estimated at 12,000 active forces and another 15,000 in support, totaling nearly 30,000 troops.

This information was confirmed by numerous calls and e-mails from other military personnel, some indicating large troop deployment as early as September. Among these supporting sources is a British S.A.S. officer confirming that U.S. Army Rangers are already in Libya. The chatter differs in the details, but the overall convergence is clear– that a full-on war is emerging this fall as Gaddafi continues to evade attempts to remove him from power.

SWAT Team Mania: The War Against the American Citizen

The Rutherford Institute

By John W. Whitehead
6/13/2011


“He [a federal agent] had his knee on my back and I had no idea why they were there.”--Anthony Wright, victim of a Dept. of Education SWAT team raid
The militarization of American police--no doubt a blowback effect of the military empire--has become an unfortunate part of American life. In fact, it says something about our reliance on the military that federal agencies having nothing whatsoever to do with national defense now see the need for their own paramilitary units. Among those federal agencies laying claim to their own law enforcement divisions are the State Department, Department of Education, Department of Energy, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the National Park Service, to name just a few.

These agencies have secured the services of fully armed agents--often in SWAT team attire--through a typical bureaucratic sleight-of-hand provision allowing for the creation of Offices of Inspectors General (OIG). Each OIG office is supposedly charged with not only auditing their particular agency’s actions but also uncovering possible misconduct, waste, fraud, theft, or certain types of criminal activity by individuals or groups related to the agency’s operation. At present, there are 73 such OIG offices in the federal government that, at times, perpetuate a police state aura about them.

For example, it was heavily armed agents from one such OIG office, working under the auspices of the Department of Education, who forced their way into the home of a California man, handcuffed him, and placed his three children (ages 3, 7, and 11) in a squad car while they conducted a search of his home. This federal SWAT team raid, which is essentially what it was, on the home of Anthony Wright on Tuesday, June 7, 2011, was allegedly intended to ferret out information on Wright’s estranged wife, Michelle, who no longer lives with him and who was suspected of financial aid fraud (early news reports characterized the purpose of the raid as being over Michelle’s delinquent student loans).

According to Wright, he was awakened at 6 am by the sound of agents battering down his door and, upon descending the stairs, was immediately subdued by police. One neighbor actually witnessed the team of armed agents surround the house and, after forcing entry, they “dragged [Wright] out in his boxer shorts, threw him to the ground and handcuffed him.”


This is not the first time a SWAT team has been employed in non-violent scenarios. Nationwide, SWAT teams have been employed to address an astonishingly trivial array of criminal activity or mere community nuisances: angry dogs, domestic disputes, improper paperwork filed by an orchid farmer, and misdemeanor marijuana possession, to give a brief sampling. In some instances, SWAT teams are even employed, in full armament, to perform routine patrols.

How did we allow ourselves to travel so far down the road to a police state? While we are now grappling with a power-hungry police state at the federal level, the militarization of domestic American law enforcement is largely the result of the militarization of local police forces, which are increasingly militaristic in their uniforms, weaponry, language, training, and tactics and have come to rely on SWAT teams in matters that once could have been satisfactorily performed by traditional civilian officers. Even so, this transformation of law enforcement at the local level could not have been possible without substantial assistance from on high.

Frequently justified as vital tools necessary to combat terrorism and deal with rare but extremely dangerous criminal situations, such as those involving hostages, SWAT teams--which first appeared on the scene in California in the 1960s--have now become intrinsic parts of local law enforcement operations, thanks in large part to substantial federal assistance. For example, in 1994, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Department of Defense agreed to a memorandum of understanding that enabled the transfer of federal military technology to local police forces. Following the passage of the Defense Authorization Security Act of 1997, which was intended to accelerate the transfer of military equipment to domestic law enforcement departments, local police acquired military weaponry--gratuitously or at sharp discounts--at astonishing rates. Between 1997 and 1999, the agency created by the Defense Authorization Security Act conveyed 3.4 million orders of military equipment to over 11,000 local police agencies in all 50 states. Not only did this vast abundance of military weaponry contribute to a more militarized police force, but it also helped spur the creation of SWAT teams in jurisdictions across the country.

In one of the few quantitative studies on the subject, criminologist Peter Kraska found in 1997 that close to 90 percent of cities with populations exceeding 50,000 and at least 100 sworn officers had at least one paramilitary unit. In a separate study, Kraska determined that, as of 1996, 65 percent of towns with populations between 25,000 and 50,000 had a paramilitary unit, with an additional 8 percent intending to establish one.

While the frequency of SWAT operations has increased dramatically in recent years, jumping from 1,000 to 40,000 raids per year by 2001, it appears to have less to do with increases in violent crime and more to do with law enforcement bureaucracy and a police state mentality. Indeed, according to Kraska’s estimates, 75-80 percent of SWAT callouts are now for mere warrant service. In some jurisdictions, SWAT teams are responsible for servicing 100 percent of all drug warrants issued. A Maryland study, conducted in the wake of a botched raid in 2008 that resulted in the mistaken detainment of Berwyn Heights mayor Cheye Calvo and the shooting deaths of his two dogs, corroborates Kraska’s findings. According to the study, SWAT teams are deployed 4.5 times per day in Maryland with 94 percent of those deployments being for something as minor as serving search or arrest warrants. In the county in which the Calvo raid occurred, more than 50 percent of SWAT operations carried out were for misdemeanors or non-serious felonies.

This overuse of paramilitary forces and increased reliance on military weaponry has inevitably resulted in a pervasive culture of militarism in domestic law enforcement. Police mimicry of the military is enhanced by the war-heavy imagery and metaphors associated with law enforcement activity: the war on drugs, the war on crime, etc. Moreover, it is estimated that 46 percent of paramilitary units were trained by “active-duty military experts in special operations.” In turn, the military mindset adopted by many SWAT members encourages a tendency to employ lethal force. After all, soldiers are authorized to terminate enemy combatants. As Lawrence Korb, a former official in the Reagan Administration, put it, soldiers are “trained to vaporize, not Mirandize.”

Ironically, despite the fact that SWAT team members are subject to greater legal restraints than their counterparts in the military, they are often less well-trained in the use of force than are the special ops soldiers on which they model themselves. Indeed, SWAT teams frequently fail to conform to the basic precautions required in military raids. For instance, after reading about a drug raid in Missouri, an army officer currently serving in Afghanistan commented:
My first thought on reading this story is this: Most American police SWAT teams probably have fewer restrictions on conducting forced entry raids than do US forces in Afghanistan. For our troops over here to conduct any kind of forced entry, day or night, they have to meet one of two conditions: have a bad guy (or guys) inside actively shooting at them; or obtain permission from a 2-star general, who must be convinced by available intelligence (evidence) that the person or persons they’re after is present at the location, and that it’s too dangerous to try less coercive methods.
Remember, SWAT teams originated as specialized units dedicated to defusing extremely sensitive, dangerous situations. As the role of paramilitary forces has expanded, however, to include involvement in nondescript police work targeting nonviolent suspects, the mere presence of SWAT units has actually injected a level of danger and violence into police-citizen interactions that was not present as long as these interactions were handled by traditional civilian officers. In one drug raid, for instance, an unarmed pregnant woman was shot as she attempted to flee the police by climbing out a window. In another case, the girlfriend of a drug suspect and her young child crouched on the floor in obedience to police instructions during the execution of a search warrant. One officer proceeded to shoot the family dogs. His fellow officer, in another room, mistook the shots for hostile gunfire and fired blindly into the room where the defendant crouched, killing her and wounding her child.

What we are witnessing is an inversion of the police-civilian relationship. Rather than compelling police officers to remain within constitutional bounds as servants of the people, ordinary Americans are being placed at the mercy of law enforcement. This is what happens when paramilitary forces are used to conduct ordinary policing operations, such as executing warrants on nonviolent defendants. Yet studies indicate that paramilitary raids frequently result in misdemeanor convictions. An investigation by Denver’s Rocky Mountain News revealed that of the 146 no-knock raids conducted in Denver in 2000, only 49 resulted in charges. And only two resulted in prison sentences for suspects targeted in the raids.

General incompetence, collateral damage (fatalities, property damage, etc.) and botched raids tend to go hand in hand with an overuse of paramilitary forces. In some cases, officers misread the address on the warrant. In others, they simply barge into the wrong house or even the wrong building. In another subset of cases (such as the Department of Education raid on Anthony Wright’s home), police conduct a search of a building where the suspect no longer resides. SWAT teams have even on occasion conducted multiple, sequential raids on wrong addresses or executed search warrants despite the fact that the suspect is already in police custody. Police have also raided homes on the basis of mistaking the presence or scent of legal substances for drugs. Incredibly, these substances have included tomatoes, sunflowers, fish, elderberry bushes, kenaf plants, hibiscus, and ragweed.

All too often, botched SWAT team raids have resulted in one tragedy after another for the residents with little consequences for law enforcement. Judges tend to afford extreme levels of deference to police officers who have mistakenly killed innocent civilians but do not afford similar leniency to civilians who have injured police officers in acts of self-defense. Even homeowners who mistake officers for robbers can be sentenced for assault or murder if they take defensive actions resulting in harm to police.

And as journalist Radley Balko shows in his in-depth study of police militarization, the shock-and-awe tactics utilized by many SWAT teams only increases the likelihood that someone will get hurt. Drug warrants, for instance, are typically served by paramilitary units late at night or shortly before dawn. Unfortunately, to the unsuspecting homeowner--especially in cases involving mistaken identities or wrong addresses--a raid can appear to be nothing less than a violent home invasion, with armed intruders crashing through their door. The natural reaction would be to engage in self-defense. Yet such a defensive reaction on the part of a homeowner, particularly a gun owner, will spur officers to employ lethal force.

That’s exactly what happened to Jose Guerena, the young ex-Marine who was killed after a SWAT team kicked open the door of his Arizona home during a drug raid and opened fire. According to news reports, Guerena, 26 years old and the father of two young children, grabbed a gun in response to the forced invasion but never fired. In fact, the safety was still on his gun when he was killed. Police officers were not as restrained. The young Iraqi war veteran was allegedly fired upon 71 times. Guerena had no prior criminal record, and the police found nothing illegal in his home.

The problems inherent in these situations are further compounded by the fact that SWAT teams are granted “no-knock” warrants at high rates such that the warrants themselves are rendered practically meaningless. This sorry state of affairs is made even worse by recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings that have essentially done away with the need for a “no-knock” warrant altogether, giving the police authority to disregard the protections afforded American citizens by the Fourth Amendment.

In the process, Americans are rendered altogether helpless and terror-stricken as a result of these confrontations with the police. Indeed, “terrorizing” is a mild term to describe the effect on those who survive such vigilante tactics. “It was terrible. It was the most frightening experience of my life. I thought it was a terrorist attack,” said 84-year-old Leona Goldberg, a victim of such a raid. Yet this type of “terrorizing” activity is characteristic of the culture that we have created. As author Eugene V. Walker, a former Boston University professor, wrote some years ago, “A society in which people are already isolated and atomized, divided by suspicious and destructive rivalry, would support a system of terror better than a society without much chronic antagonism.”

The systematic financial pillaging of the middle class – Millionaires don’t feel rich unless they have $7.5 million while 45 million Americans live on food stamps. Another 50 percent cannot come up with $2,000 in the next 30 days.

MyBudget360.com
June 16, 2011

For over 30 years the debilitating shrinkage of the middle class has been papered over with access and use of debt.  Debt in every form; mortgage debt, credit card debt, auto loans, and student loans.  Yet debt is not wealth.  Americans are facing a financially nightmare where 1 out of 3 has no savings.  This should come as a little surprise since the per capita income in the country is $25,000

Many workers are simply getting enough out of their stagnant paychecks to pay the monthly bills.  Of course much of the real wealth has been systematically looted through bailouts and crony capitalism.  There was a time when the government and even Wall Street benefitted by a growing U.S. middle class.  Now all you hear from banking executives is how much cheaper it is to outsource American jobs at the same time their pay keeps soaring.  Why don’t we outsource their job?  The problem of course is a deep capture of our political system and a perfect fusing of Wall Street and the government. 

The middle class is slowly floating away as inflation created by the Fed bailouts of the too big to fail banks causes more and more financial pain.


The economy that debt built
I wanted to examine the growth of personal income in relation to household debt.  If we setup a ratio between the two we see that from the 1950s to the early 1980s the ratio was rather stable.  Even while debt went up, so did incomes at a relative level.  This all changed in the early 1980s:
debt and income

Just like a person can go out and buy a McMansion with a giant mortgage, lease a European luxury car, and go into $100,000 of student loan debt the good times are felt only shortly.  The bill eventually does come and it is coming in full to the American public.  Yet the middle class only expanded because of access to debt.  So as this access is shunted the American middle class has now faced over a decade of lost returns in wages.  No growth.  The reason so many people are losing their homes is because they simply do not have the income to sustain their purchases of the years when debt was handed out like candy. 

The big banks still have access to this debt machine courtesy of the Federal Reserve.  Yet the middle class is now being thrown to the wolves to support the too big to fail.  Why doesn’t the media after four years examine deeply what we have gotten for the trillions of dollars thrown at the banking sector?

Ron Paul: Is the Gold in Fort Knox Real?

June 14, 2011
 
No one would accuse Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul of being mainstream, including the Texas congressman himself, who relishes his role as an outsider.

So it’s not a huge surprise that Paul has asked Obama administration officials to audit the content of the nation's 700,000 gold bars held in Fort Knox, according to an internal Treasury document obtained by CNBC.

Talk has spread over the Internet that our government has secretly sold off the nation's gold supply and replaced it with metal bars that are merely painted gold.

Paul, chairman of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy, has previously called for the U.S. gold reserve to be counted and for a return to the gold standard.

But now he wants Treasury Department and U.S. Mint officials to testify at a June 23 subcommittee hearing about the Fort Knox gold’s authenticity.

The Obama administration may not be too enthusiastic about his idea. The Treasury document says it would cost about $15 million, requiring 400 workers to spend six months on the job.

The Treasury's Office of the Inspector General audits the Mint once a year.

Meanwhile, gold prices have bounced back from a three-week low amid concern about inflation.

“Gold is embracing the inflationary discussion,” Adam Klopfenstein, a senior market strategist at Lind-Waldock, tells Bloomberg.

The precious metal traded at $1,522 an ounce Tuesday afternoon.

New 9/11 Poll: Half Of New Yorkers Support New Investigation Into WTC7 Collapse

More than one in four believe Twin Towers were brought down with explosives
New 9/11 Poll: Half Of New Yorkers Support New Investigation Into WTC7 Collapse building 7 poll
Steve Watson
Prisonplanet.com
June 14, 2011
A new scientific poll reveals that almost half of all New Yorkers would support a new investigation into the collapse of World Trade Center building 7, which fell at free fall speed into its own footprint on the afternoon of September 11, 2001, after suffering only relatively minor fire damage.
The poll, conducted at the end of last month by by the independent Siena Research Institute, found that 48 percent were in favor of the Manhattan District Attorney or New York City Council opening a new investigation into the collapse of WTC 7.
The survey was commissioned by “Remember Building 7”, a transparency group led by 9/11 family members, NYC Coalition for Accountability Now (NYC CAN) and Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth).
The survey highlights the fact that almost ten years on there is still significant concern over the official explanation of events on 9/11.
The poll extended to 643 New Yorkers, including respondents in all of New York City’s five boroughs.
It also reveals that only 49% who were aware of Building 7′s collapse believe fires brought it down. 24% believe it was a controlled demolition, and 23% are unsure.
Moreover, the survey finds that 36% of all respondents are inclined to believe critics who argue against the government’s explanation that the collapse was caused by fires, while 40% are inclined to believe the government’s account, and 23% are unsure.

Pope Benedict: Backs Croatia's EU bid on Zagreb visit

BBC News
June 10, 2011

Pope Benedict XVI has given his strong backing to Croatia's bid to join the EU, on his first visit to the nation.

He said he understood fears of a loss of cultural identity from joining the bloc but said Europe needs to be reminded of its Christian roots.

The Pope was warmly welcomed in the staunchly Catholic nation, leading a prayer vigil for thousands in Zagreb.

On Sunday he is to celebrate Mass and visit the tomb of controversial WWII Cardinal Alojzije Stepinac.

There has been criticism of the $6m (£3.6m; 4m euros) cost of the two-day visit but the correspondents say the Vatican has long had a special relationship with Croatia.

Ron Paul: The Globalists' Worst Nightmare

SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS!!!
Mark Matheny
June 12, 2011

Every human being on earth has some kind of phobia, whether it be spiders, high places, flying, or dogs. But if you want to know what the globalists fear, then just look to a humble congressman from Texas named Ron Paul.



Ron Paul started his career as a congressman  in 1976, replacing Representative Robert R. Casey of Texas who had resigned. That same year Congressman Paul went on to establish the Foundation for Rational Economics and Education (F.R.E.E.).

During his career, he became known for his strong criticism of the central Banking system and the financial institutions, and began publishing his economic theories about sound money.

Some of the books he has published are:
  • Gold, Peace and Prosperity: The Birth of a New Currency (1981)
  • The Case for Gold: A Minority Report of the U.S. Gold Commission (1982)
  • Abortion and Liberty (1983)
  • End the Fed (2009)
During the 1980's Ron Paul ran as a Libertarian, advocating lower taxes, and a reduction in the size of the federal government. Ron Paul's voting record has always reflected in my opinion, the ideals and intent of the founders of the constitution when they established the REPUBLIC of the United States.

In the 1990's Ron Paul then started running on the Republican ticket, knowing that the Left-Right Paradigm was really a one-party system,  meant to steer the masses of Americans in supporting policies and agendas geared toward globalism and all that it entails.

However, even on the Republican ticket, Congressman Paul's views stuck out against the Neocon agenda in the right side of the one- party/ two sided system that had been talked about by the likes of Carroll Quigley.

It became easily clear to any individual not brainwashed by the mainstream media, that the invisible forces controlling our visible puppet government were out to marginalize Ron Paul, as his ideals pose a great threat to their plans for world government, and their desire for the destruction of nation-states and individual freedoms.

Here is a prime example of how the globalist-controlled media outlet called Fox News tried to degrade and humiliate Ron Paul during the debates of 2008:



In this debate Congressman Ron Paul totally vindicated himself and his stance on several key issues which would be devestating to the Globalists' agenda if he is able to fill the position as President in 2012.

You must understand that the media is simply the arm of the Globalists, and it is controlled by lower level (yet powerful) soldiers such as Rupert Murdoch, who make sure that important issues like unemployment, foreign wars, the federal reserve, unaccounted amounts of trillions of dollars through bailouts, and atrocities committed by the UN and Nato remain out of the news, while Lady Gaga, Brittany Spears, and the Royal Family's exploits are on the front tabloids, news papers, and the boob tube, (commonly known as a television).

Ron Paul is feared because he is against the criminal cartel called the Federal Reserve. He is feared because he is against the globalists' wealth-redistribution called "bailouts" in which the very criminals responsible for the crisis ( in 2007 and every other time) then reward themselves with money granted to them from the very institution owned by them - The Federal Reserve!!

An example is the four mega banks now running the United States- JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, and Bank of America. JP Morgan Chase and Citigroup own 52.86% of the New York Federal Reserve!

If you want proof of this, then just look on page 76 of Catastrophe By Dick Morris, and Eileen McGann:

General Motors $14 Billion

Among several others.

The point is that Ron Paul is a threat to the Banksters in charge of both monetary policy at the present time, who are also the profiteers of the endless wars currently waging in the Middle East.

Another article to back what I am saying is the Reuters article titled  "Dow, S&P end sixth losing week - is seventh on tap?":

Some of the biggest decliners were regional bank stocks that are now going to face annual tests.
Northern Trust Corp (NTRS.O) fell 1.2 percent to $46.77 and M&T Bank Corp (MTB.N) lost 1.2 percent to $84.41.
But large banks, including JPMorgan Chase (JPM.N) and Bank of America (BAC.N), rose in a late rebound, on a news report that the extra capital charge on big banks will likely be 2 percent to 2.5 percent, compared with the widely predicted 3 percent, traders said.
Bank of America shares rose 1.4 percent to $10.80 and JPMorgan added 0.2 percent to $41.05. (emphasis Mine)

Ron Paul also condemns all the undeclared foreign wars America is currently involved in, and the "blowback" it is causing as a result of not following the founding fathers wisdom of staying out of foreign entanglements:




The globalists have even gone so far as to try and redistrict Ron Paul out of office!!!

We are at a point in time where we must make a decision to defend our constitution, and therefore our God-given rights to "Life, Liberty, in the pursuit of Happiness", or give in to tyranny and the destruction of our Republic! I believe that we as individuals, and as Americans together must promote and support Ron Paul as President in 2012 or be doomed.

Will he provide all the answers? No. But I do believe he is about the only hope left when it comes to true patriots willing to fight for the restoration of our Republic!
