The manual directly advocates training paramilitaries, pervasive surveillance, censorship, press control and restrictions on labor unions & political parties.
It directly advocates warrantless searches, detainment without charge and (under varying circumstances) the suspension of habeas corpus. It directly advocates employing terrorists or prosecuting individuals for terrorism who are not terrorists, running false flag operations and concealing human rights abuses from journalists.
And it repeatedly advocates the use of subterfuge and “psychological operations” [...]
Both political parties act like they dislike each other, but behind closed doors they buddy up for a drink and make deals.
They put on this show that they disagree with each other, when in fact both political parties are working for the global elite, both political parties are working toward a New World Order.
This is the fall of the republic, the limitations on the government have been whittled away. These [...]
Is the financial collapse of Italy going to be the final blow that breaks the back of Europe financially? Most people don’t realize this, but Italy is actually the third largest debtor in the entire world after the United States and Japan. Italy currently has a debt to GDP ratio of more than 120 percent, and Italy has a bigger national debt than anyone else in Europe does. That is why [...]
Are we heading towards an Economic Collapse? Preparing for Financial Armageddon
Our county sits at over 16 trillion dollars in debt, with unfunded obligations that make the actual debt number about $120 trillion. The reality of the situation is there’s really no way out of the situation. Our government, thanks to both political parties, has spent us into a hole that we cannot dig ourselves out of. The facts, that nobody [...]
A plan being pushed in Congress right now by senators from both major political parties would force all Americans to get a biometric national ID card. It is being promoted as a key “immigration reform” measure, but the truth is that a national ID card is much more about the government’s endless appetite for more control over the American people. If this national ID card plan is passed by [...]

Drones are wildly popular on the battlefield. Now they can claim victory elsewhere. The use of drones within U.S. borders—in car chases, to monitor wildfires, or for simple surveillance—is uniting political parties and people more often at odds.
Their concern: the widespread use of drones among civilians represents a deep and dangerous intrusion into American life.
“What we used to know as privacy is finished,” said John Whitehead, a [...]
The middle class has quite a gift welcoming them as the calendar flips over to 2013. Their payroll taxes are going to go up, their income taxes are going to go up, and approximately 28 million households are going to be hit with a huge, unexpected AMT tax bill on their 2012 earnings. So happy New Year middle class! You are about to be ripped to shreds. In addition to [...]
As 2012 draws to a close, i’’s hard not to be reminded that 2013 will begin with Ron Paul retired from Congress. For all those years he was a fearless truth-teller, who exposed and denounced the horrors, domestic or foreign, of the regime. His farewell address – something practically unheard of for a congressman in the first place – will continue to be read years from now, as future [...]
This is the time of the year when Americans run out to their favorite retail stores and fill up their shopping carts with lots of cheap plastic crap made by workers in foreign countries where it is legal to pay slave labor wages. By doing this, the American people are actively participating in the destruction of the U.S. economy. You see, buying products that are made in America is not [...]
Well over half of British voters now want to leave the European Union, according to an opinion poll that shows anti-EU sentiment is sweeping through all three main political parties.
The Opinium/Observer survey finds that 56% of people would probably or definitely vote for the UK to go it alone if they were offered the choice in a referendum. About 68% of Conservative voters want to leave the EU, against 24% [...]

MENTOR, Ohio — Facing questions about his campaigning for re-election while millions of Americans still await government relief efforts from Superstorm Sandy, President Obama said Saturday that one of the disaster’s positive results was “leaders of different political parties working together to fix what’s broken.”
“It’s a spirit that says, ‘We’re all in this together,’ ” Mr. Obama told about 4,000 supporters in a high-school gym in northeast [...]
The election is still more than two weeks away, and already a tremendous amount of evidence has emerged that operatives from both major political parties have been committing election fraud. There have been reports of dead people being registered to vote, of voter registration forms being tossed in the garbage, and of activists purposely helping people get registered to vote in more than one state. We have not had [...]
As we’ve stated repeatedly, the US is Greece X 100.
A former top federal monetary executive says the U.S. could be headed toward a Greece-like debt crisis and financial meltdown, and blames both political parties for the mess.
Former U.S. comptroller general and Government Accountability Office chief Dave Walker was in Phoenix this week as part of a national tour to talk about the federal deficit and debt, and its potential impacts [...]
The Commission on Presidential Debates, a bipartisan project of the Republican and Democratic parties, was established, at least in part, to make sure that major party presidential candidates would be unlikely to suffer the indignity of sharing a stage with an outsider. The effort hasn’t been completely successful — Ross Perot actually managed to meet the CPD’s nearly prohibitive criteria for inclusion in 1992 — but the two parties now have a [...]
On C-SPAN today (9-19-12) there was a member of Congress proposing a bill (HR 5912) which would do away with federal tax dollars funding political conventions.
Presently the RNC and DNC get what are called “federal matching funds” of around 50 MILLIION dollars each to fund their fancy conventions (where they cheat).
But they shouldn’t get a dime as they are PRIVATE organizations.
And I’ll bet the Libertarians or any other 3rd party [...]

On September 12th 2012 the Dutch people have convinced themselves they actually had something to choose from on election day. The current ruling party in the Netherlands was declared winner, it’s leader (a self-proclaimed “liberal” named Mark Rutte who attended the 2012 Bilderberg conference) recently shoveled some 4 billion euro into the pockets of European bankers, with an option of some 140 billion euro more, when the [...]
Are you better off today than you were four years ago? This is a question that comes up nearly every election. This year the Romney campaign has even created a Twitter hashtag for it:#AreYouBetterOff. The Democrats are making lots of speeches claiming that we are better off, and the Republicans are making lots of speeches claiming that we are not. So are most Americans actually better off than they [...]
Would you say no to the Vice President?
One New River Valley business owner turned Vice President Joe Biden down.
This might happen more than you think from both political parties, most businesses just don’t talk about it. The owner of “Crumb and Get It” – did.
Chris McMurray’s bakery has been open only since May, barely three months.
The protests that have broken out in Sudan are, on the surface, the manifestation of legitimate grievances. Portrayed in the Western media as a direct response to austerity measures implemented by Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, these protests indicate a strong current of dissatisfaction among the people of the country. However, seen from a broader, more critical perspective, the demonstrations are the tangible fruits of a carefully constructed destabilization campaign incorporating [...]

Comes the latest economic package of Spain. Over two and a half years will be cut about 65 billion euros in public spending. Freeze the thirteenth state employees, the increased taxes, reduced by 20% subsidies to political parties here, the main measures. And adding other last financial year, you get to snipping for 123 billion euros. But according to HSBC even this be enough to avoid the request for a bailout total [...]

Police found the head in Montreal’s Park Angrignon, a few miles from [...]
Markets initially bounced on Monday morning after Greece’s election eased fears that the single currency would break up, but the rally proved short-lived amid persistent uncertainty over the global economy and other eurozone countries.
A narrow win for Greece’s pro-bailout party, New Democracy, initially spurred markets higher on hopes that the embattled country has bought more time to remain in the euro. Equities across Europe ticked higher and the euro strengthened, [...]
The United States held onto its AA+ rating from Standard & Poor’s Friday but the agency said it also kept a negative outlook on the country, citing the political deadlock over fixing the fiscal deficit.
Ten months after delivering a historic rate cut to Washington, removing its top-level AAA rating, S&P warned that the reasons for the downgrade remained in place and that if anything they were deteriorating.
The ideological deadlock between Republicans and Democrats continued to [...]
WASHINGTON (AP) — Despite recent signs of weakness, the U.S. economy isn’t likely to slip back into a recession, Warren Buffett said Tuesday. He also said both political parties deserve blame for the federal government’s failure to reduce the deficit.
Speaking at the 25th anniversary dinner of the Economic Club of Washington, the billionaire investor said he sees the odds of a renewed recession as “very low.”
But he warned that could change if [...]
Goldman Sachs in their latest note to clients writes that under the most likely of three scenarios for the political dynamic that arises in the eurozone after the June 17 elections in Greece, “it may be necessary [for the troika] to take Greece to the edge of the abyss.”
The Goldman team, led by the bank’s chief global equity strategist Peter Oppenheimer, points out that doing so “has been the strategy on past occasions: it may need to [...]
Spanish bonds fell, pushing 10-year yields to the most relative to benchmark German bunds since the euro was created, as nationalized lender Bankia group said it will seek 19 billion euros ($23.9 billion) of state support.
German 10-year yields were within three basis points of a record low, even as opinion polls showed greater support for Greece’s pro-bailout political parties. Italian bonds declined as business confidence fell more than economists forecast, dropping to the lowest [...]

If the financial system were in conformity with reality, most taxes would have no reason to exist.
When the government has a road built, or a piece of road, does this hinder or reduce the production of eggs, bread, milk, butter, vegetables, clothing, shoes or other consumer goods? No.
Does not this road building active stimulate the production of these other consumer goods? Certainly.
The production of other consumer [...]
SEATTLE – Greece is following the road taken by several other crisis-ridden emerging economies over the past 30 years. Indeed, as I argued earlier this year, there are stunning similarities between this once-proud eurozone member and Argentina prior to its default in 2001. With an equally traumatic implosion – economic, financial, political, and social – now taking place, we should expect heated debate about who is to blame for the deepening [...]

Political parties in Greece are struggling to come up with a power-sharing coalition deal, sending the crisis-hit country into further turmoil. General elections on Sunday failed to produce an outright winner, with leading parties so far failing to form a government. Without an agreement, fresh elections would have to be held. On Thursday, Athens is due to receive 5.2 billion euros in [...]
“The traditional political elites are losing control of the system they once dominated.” 12 of the 17 member states of the EMU have seen their governments collapse or been voted out in the last two years. As Stratfor’s Kristen Cooper notes, this is testament to the near political impossibility of implementing austerity and maintaining popular support. The tough truth is that while voters initially turn to the mainstream opposition they soon realize [...]
