1. Muslims, Mormons and Liberals - Why is it OK to mock one religion but not another? (Wall Street Journal)
So let's get this straight: In the consensus view of modern American liberalism, it is hilarious to mock Mormons and Mormonism but outrageous to mock Muslims and Islam. Why? Maybe it's because nobody has ever been harmed, much less killed, making fun of Mormons.My Take:
While it is true that no one has ever been killed for mocking Mormonism, the author is correct that it is hypocritical to endorse the mocking of one religion and yet condemn the mocking of another. The truth, as always, lies beneath the surface: contentions between Islam and Christianity are being used for a number of underhanded purposes, including A) causing "conservatives," who are typically Christian, to feel justified in supporting the unConstitutional wars in the Middle East, and B) to steadily increase tensions in the Middle East specifically, and between Islam and Christianity generally, in order to foment the next World War, justifying, once again, intervention by "international authorities," leading, at last, to a global government.
In order to understand how world wars fit into the plan for global government (i.e., the New World Order), I recommend reading The Illuminati and the Council on Foreign Relations, by Myron Fagan, which I am in the process of annotating and fact checking online.
2. LDS apostle tells Mormons: Stock up on food, not ammo (Salt Lake Tribune)
LDS apostle Dallin H. Oaks cautioned Mormons against joining or supporting "right-wing groups who mistakenly apply prophecies about the last days to promote efforts to form paramilitary or other organizations." ... Latter-day Saints should not "substitute [their] own organizations for the political and military authorities put in place by constitutional government and processes," the apostle said.My Take:
A careful reading of this shows that Elder Oaks did not say that Mormons should fail to exercise their Second Amendment rights. Beyond that, however, I have a unique angle on this story that most do not. Within the past year, it was revealed that a gentleman from a forum I frequented had taken it upon himself to form what some perceived as a "paramilitary group." From what I understand, these individuals felt that it would be their duty to fulfill certain specific prophecies in the future, and they were training to do so. The forum administrators were contacted by law enforcement, which lead to the disbandment of their organization under threat of possible excommunication of those involved. Zoiks! Apparently, all this was going on in a private sub-forum to which I did not belong.

1. The Federal Reserve, a Privately Owned Banking Cartel, Has Been Given Police Powers, with Glock 22s and Patrol Cars (AlterNet)
Quietly, without fanfare or Congressional hearings, the USA Patriot Act in 2001 bestowed on the 12 privately owned Federal Reserve Banks, domestic policing powers... The Cleveland Fed notes that the job “may include, but would not be limited to: use of deadly or non-lethal force…” ... In addition to regular policing functions, the Federal Reserve police have been observed in airports with rifles, functioning as dignitary protection teams. Various recruitment ads confirm that this is sometimes part of the job... There is also the obvious question as to why the expense, training and potential liability of armed police would be necessary when all of the Federal Reserve Banks are in cities with large municipal police forces. With private bankers sitting on the Boards of each of these Reserve Banks, many of whom are officers of banks under criminal investigation, there is the serious need for Congressional investigation into how the Nation’s criminal databases are being used by the private sector as well as the further chilling of protest and dissent from another new sheriff in town.
If you have not already done so, please watch Aaron Russo's film, America: Freedom to Fascism, here (on Google Video) or embedded below, from YouTube. A semi-governmental police force in the hands of a private organization, specifically a banking organization, should frighten everyone. I believe the film raises enough issues to make the reasons clear.
2. Allen West: 80 communists in the House (Politico)
In a video clip of the event posted Wednesday, West was responding a question from a constituent asking “What percentage of the American legislature do you think are card-carrying Marxists?”
“That’s a fair question. I believe there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party,” West says in the video.My Take:
He went on to say, “It’s called the Congressional Progressive Caucus,” according to a spokesman, Tim Edson.
While this information is only intended to rile Allen West's Tea Party supporters (i.e., don't expect any Un-American Activities Committees to be formed), it is more than likely true, as history bears out, beginning in the State Department: Alger Hiss (Wikipedia) was a Communist serving in the State Dept during the Forties, and Hillary Clinton is the Communist serving there now. Nothing has changed. If there is one thing you can trust, it is that Communists will never give up positions of power. This will be apparent if you have been following the pretended fall and subsequent "rise" of Vladimir Putin (John Birch Society). (The Wikipedia article linked above casts doubts on Alger Hiss's Communist ties. See what former Secretary of Agriculture and Apostle Ezra Taft Benson, former FBI Chief W. Cleon Skousen, and others had to say about Alger Hiss at Latter-day Conservative.)

Other1. Infinite quantitative easing (QE3) now initiated; the final chapter of America's financial blowout has begun (Natural News)
This is it, folks: the final chapter of America's great financial blowout has begun. The Federal Reserve's decision to announce "infinite" quantitative easing has now put us all on the path of infinite money creation. With up to $85 billion in monthly money creation -- including $40 billion a month in purchases of mortgage-backed securities -- the Fed is now wholly committed to the creation of new fake money to cover old fake debts. Mathematically, this financial death spiral can only end in sheer catastrophe.My Take:
This massive money creation tactic is the Fed's last-ditch plan to desperately try to save the economy. "I think the country should have panicked over what the Fed is saying that we have lost control," said Ron Paul, "and the only thing we have left is massively creating new money out of thin air, which has not worked before, and is not going to work this time."
Peter Schiff added, "This is a disastrous monetary policy; it's kamikaze monetary policy." (End Of the American Dream)
And he's right. It's suicide. It's also highly offensive to anyone who can actually do math... which, sadly, isn't that many people these days.
There was never any intention of getting America back on track, financially. These people are not idiots, no matter how the so-called "right-wing media" paints them so. They are implementing the long-planned, and hard-won, financial destruction of our country.
2. Land of The Freebies, Home of the Enslaved (YouTube)
If you didn't already see how this all works, maybe now you will. As mentioned above, this has all been PLANNED. It is known as the Cloward-Pivens strategy. According to Discover the Networks:
First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, the "Cloward-Pivens Strategy" seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse...
The authors noted that the number of Americans subsisting on welfare -- about 8 million, at the time -- probably represented less than half the number who were technically eligible for full benefits. They proposed a "massive drive to recruit the poor onto the welfare rolls." Cloward and Piven calculated that persuading even a fraction of potential welfare recipients to demand their entitlements would bankrupt the system. The result, they predicted, would be "a profound financial and political crisis" that would unleash "powerful forces for major economic reform at the national level."
Their article called for "cadres of aggressive organizers" to use "demonstrations to create a climate of militancy." Intimidated by threats of black violence, politicians would appeal to the federal government for help. Carefully orchestrated media campaigns, carried out by friendly, leftwing journalists, would float the idea of "a federal program of income redistribution," in the form of a guaranteed living income for all -- working and non-working people alike.NOW do you know what a "community organizer" does, and why this all sounds so much like the last four years under Obama?

3. Italian Supreme Court head calls for international 9/11 inquiry (Digital Journal)
Fernando Imposimato, the President of the Italian Supreme Court, has raised the call for a criminal investigation of 9/11, comparing the terror attacks to the declassified "false flag" incidents carried out by the CIA in Italy under Operation Gladio.
"The 9/11 attacks were a global state terror operation permitted by the administration of the USA, which had foreknowledge of the operation yet remained intentionally unresponsive in order to make war against Afghanistan and Iraq," Imposimato declared in a letter published on Sunday by the Journal of 9/11 Studies. As a former state prosecutor, Imposimato has extensive experience investigating high-profile crimes, including the kidnapping and assassination of Italian Prime Minster Aldo Moro and the attempted assassination of Pope John Paul II. He also worked on the Anti-Mafia commission as a Senator, giving him a wealth of knowledge on the inner workings of organized crime syndicates.
"Italy too was a victim of the 'strategia della tensione' (strategy of tension) of the CIA, enacted in Italy from the time of the Portella della Ginestra massacre in Sicily in 1947 until 1993," he wrote, recounting the decades of clandestine violence carried out by Western intelligence agencies in the Mediterranean. These terror attacks, conducted under the codename "Gladio", were condemned by the European Parliament in 1990, but a criminal investigation has yet to be initiated.
Once again, "conspiracy theories" are borne out as true. The CIA has committed, and does commit, clandestine acts of violence in order to foment conflicts that will serve the purpose of the American Empire. End of story.
4. General Wesley Clark: Wars Were Planned - Seven Countries In Five Years (YouTube)
About ten days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz. I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in. He said, "Sir, you've got to come in and talk to me a second." I said, "Well, you're too busy." He said, "No, no." He says, "We've made the decision we're going to war with Iraq." This was on or about the 20th of September. I said, "We're going to war with Iraq? Why?" He said, "I don't know." He said, "I guess they don't know what else to do." So I said, "Well, did they find some information connecting Saddam to al-Qaeda?" He said, "No, no." He says, "There's nothing new that way. They just made the decision to go to war with Iraq." He said, "I guess it's like we don't know what to do about terrorists, but we've got a good military and we can take down governments." And he said, "I guess if the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail."
So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, "Are we still going to war with Iraq?" And he said, "Oh, it's worse than that." He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, "I just got this down from upstairs" -- meaning the Secretary of Defense's office -- "today." And he said, "This is a memo that describes how we're going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran."
I could have posted this in another section, but I thought it would be most appropriate here, beneath all of the other PLANNED orchestrations I have listed. I am not sure exactly when this interview aired, but it is clear that we have been on a steady track to "accidentally" do exactly what Gen. Clark was told had been planned, and pretty much in the order listed.
Second Amendment/Police State1. Man Investigated By Police For Buying Ammunition (Prison Planet)
Loftus said the police told him someone who was in the gun store while he made the purchase who works for the Chief of Police reported Loftus to make sure he “wasn’t going to do something crazy.”
Loftus told the police he had no criminal record, a fact they immediately confirmed having admitted that they had already checked his record. Loftus told the police they shouldn’t even be pulling the record unless he was a suspect in a crime, which he was not..
“I shoot that amount of ammunition on a good weekend at the range..."
Once upon a time, when America actually was a free country, the police needed a "search warrant" and "reasonable cause" before treating people like a criminal. Now, the new nanny state just wants to check on you to make sure you have taken your pills before you go to bed. Thanks, nanny! We couldn't get along without you.
Also, the man's final comment echoes what has bothered me about most recent news stories about "alleged shooters:" the notion that "thousands of rounds of ammunition" means that a person must be "up to no good." The general public sheeple have no idea that you can shoot off a couple hundred rounds of shotgun shells in one short evening at the range with your friends. Even more so if you are shooting something cheaper like .22's, that come in boxes of thousands for that very reason.
