They never sleep.....
George W. Bush is NOT the President of the United States.
The United States no longer has a republican form of government. Somebody else is running this horse and pony show, but you can’t see them unless you know what you are looking for. They distrubute weapons of mass destruction, and Americans use them every day.
Central banking makes possible the expansion of government power in all forms, most particularly the wicked godfather of all government programs: war. Without central banking, it is doubtful that any of the great wars of the 20th century, or the current debacle in Iraq , would have ever taken place, certainly not on the scale we have seen.

Planned US-Israeli Attack on Iran
We denounce and despise you for what you’re doing to our children, our grandchildren, and those children’s friends; your public school Outcome Based Education curriculums; your phony “No Child Left Behind” program, which leaves many kids starving to learn, but ignored by those paid to teach them; your plan for compulsory mental health and physical stamina testing in elementary schools; your plan to take God and Country out of our public school classrooms. We denounce and despise you for so many things that you’d likely die of old age before we could spew them all out of our wrenching gut. [Global Research]
'Iraq was Invaded to Secure Israel,' says Senator Hollings, and 'Everybody Knows It.'
"I don't apologize for this column," he said. "I want them to apologize to me for talking about anti-Semitism." President Bush went to war in Iraq "to secure our friend, Israel" and "everybody knows it," Hollings declared. [IHR]
Douglas Feith Bares His Soul to Jeffrey Goldberg
Paul Wolfowitz told Vanity Fair in May 2003 that, "For bureaucratic reasons [the administration] settled on one issue, weapons of mass destruction," as the justification for war on Iraq, "because it was the one reason everyone could agree on." [Counter Punch]
Indignation Grows in U.S. Over British Prewar Documents
Critics of Bush call them proof that he and Blair never saw diplomacy as an option with Hussein. [latimes]
National ID Cards Won't Stop Terrorism or Illegal Immigration
Absent a political miracle in the Senate, within two years every American will need a conforming national ID card to participate in ordinary activities. This REAL ID Act establishes a massive, centrally-coordinated database of highly personal information about American citizens: at a minimum their name, date of birth, place of residence, Social Security number, and physical characteristics. The legislation also grants open-ended authority to the Secretary of Homeland Security to require biometric information on IDs in the future. This means your harmless looking driver’s license could contain a retina scan, fingerprints, DNA information, or radio frequency technology. [Ron Paul]
FBI Sting Nets Military, Law Enforcement
FBI agents posing as cocaine traffickers in Arizona caught 16 current and former U.S. soldiers and law enforcement personnel who took $220,000 in bribes to help move the drugs through checkpoints, Justice Department officials said Thursday. Those charged include a former Immigration and Naturalization Service inspector, a former Army sergeant, a former federal prison guard, current and former members of the Arizona Army National Guard and the state corrections department, and a Nogales, Ariz., police officer, officials said [Guardian]
The insane republican war on drugs makes the trade profitable for criminals, and causes drug pushing on youth because the addict has to pay for his government inflated drugs.
Terminating a corrupt judicial system, and the insanely destructive Republican “war on drugs” and its irrational anti-drug laws, would not only dramatically cut crime rates, police abuses, and drug pushing onto America’s youth, but would also cut the financial lifelines of terrorists and tyrants worldwide
The Collateral Damage of Secret Combinations
Your (Paper) Money Under More Scrutiny
Pressured by anti-terror laws, banks will be spending billions of dollars over the next few years on software to counter money laundering. The software will automatically track suspicious financial transactions, but it will also monitor millions of innocuous ones, and may make it harder to cheat on your taxes. [Wired]
Paper Dollar has lost 95%
Because of the problem devalued paper money presents we are dedicated to the notion that gold coins, gold bullion and precious metals are real money. They should be included in your investment planning to protect against inflation and a falling dollar. A dollar which has lost 95% of its buying power since 1915 Bureau of Labor Statistics [CNI]
At least some folks are dealing in reality. Paper isn't money, but the liars want you to think it is. A Dollar is 371.25 grains of fine silver. But remember the golden rule? You know, he who has the gold makes the rules?
According to the CPI Inflation calculator at the BLS website, $1.00 in 1913 has the same buying power as $19.53 in 2005. Gold and silver are the most stable currency the world has ever seen. A chicken at the time of the Prophet, salla'llahu alaihi wa sallam, cost one dirham; today, 1,400 years later, a chicken costs approximately one dirham. In 1,400 years inflation is zero. Could we say the same about the dollar or any other paper currency in the last 25 years?
Imaginary wages fall at fastest rate in 14 years
Inflation rose 3.1 per cent in the year to March but salaries climbed just 2.4 per cent, according to the Employment Cost Index. In the final three months of 2004, real wages fell by 0.9 per cent.
The last time salaries fell this steeply was at the start of 1991, when real wages declined by 1.1 per cent.
Stingy pay rises mean many Americans will have to work longer hours to keep up with the cost of living, and they could ultimately undermine consumer spending and economic growth. [Financial Times]
Uh, like anybody is being paid? Slaves don't get paid for their labor. Inflation is relative term used to gloss over what is actually a tax used to fund a socialist agenda of an illegitmate government operated by individuals producing nothing of value for society.Lessons from Japan's bubble -- for ours
A real-estate bust could cause problems throughout our financial system. Just ask Japan, where the economy is still struggling to get over a 1990 crash. [Money Central]
I wonder if those folks in Japan actually own anything, or if like we Americans, they possess much, but own little or nothing. Watch for the day when the last meaningful productive job in America is exported to China, and the foreigners come to collect on the debt. You can't get something for nothing, unless of course, you're a banker.
What a strange bubble this anticivilization.
