In October of 2009, Judge Napolitano reveals facts that the US Gov’t has participated in false flag events. Can the government save Boston from a plot of it’s own creation? He had it right back then, and it definitely applies to the Boston Marathon terror perpetrated; or at minimum, assisted by the US Gov’t.

The FBI recruits, trains, funds and supplies terrorists…..so that they can “solve” the crime they actually created themselves. It’s like a firefighter who becomes an arsonist so that he can become the “hero”.

Government Overreach  :  Psy Ops – Blow back



Published on Aug 25, 2012 by

The lawyer who helped secure the release of Brendon Raub, a former Marine forcibly incarcerated in a psychiatric ward by authorities in Virginia for political posts on Facebook, told the Alex Jones Show today that there are currently a further 20 cases in his county alone that are similar in nature to Raub’s detention.

John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute also said that he had been contacted by numerous veterans in the aftermath of Raub’s release who had encountered similar problems with authorities attempting to have them declared mentally ill.

Whitehead attributed the high number of cases involving veterans as a consequence of the Department of Homeland Security’s aggressive campaign to demonize former servicemembers as domestic extremists.

Despite controversy at the time, DHS chief Janet Napolitano said she stood by an April 2009 DHS intelligence assessment that listed returning vets as likely domestic terrorists.

Just a month later, the New York Times reported on how Boy Scout Explorers were being trained by the DHS to kill “disgruntled Iraq war veterans” in terrorist drills.
The FBI has also gone out of its way to characterize returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan as a major domestic terrorist threat.

Health Ranger interviews Laura Pressley about water fluoridation

by: NaturalNews

(NaturalNews) Health Ranger: Welcome, this is Mike Adams, the Health Ranger. This is the Health Ranger report at NaturalNews.com. As you can see, I’m wearing a shirt today, ‘Water is Life.’ This is a truism about human biology, isn’t it? In fact, life on the whole planet. And here today is a special guest, well, joining us by phone actually, who has a special interest in keeping our water safe and clean. She’s running for city council in Austin, Texas, where I’m located. Her name is Laura Pressley, and she’s been one of the most outspoken opponents against the chemical fluoridation of the water supply. She’s hosting a money bomb right now to raise campaign funds to help her win the election and get a seat on the city council in Austin, where she can then help lead the fight against water fluoridation and contamination of the Austin water supply with synthetic, dangerous chemicals. Laura, thanks for joining me today.

Laura Pressley: Hey Mike, thank you for having us. I love being on your show. We’ve been on it a couple times and thank you for having us again.

Health Ranger: It’s great to have you on. I hear you’re making a lot of waves in Austin right now with your run for city council. People are, I heard they’re accusing you of being a Ron Paul supporter. That sounds like a compliment to me. What’s the deal?

Laura Pressley: I know, it is hilarious. My opponent, whom I’m running against, I’m running for Austin city council place two, and our opponent, he cannot stand on his own policies or his own voting record or his own experience, so the only thing he can do to attack us is say that you know what, in Austin it’s mostly a Democrat-type community, and I’ll tell you what, the left-right paradigm is alive and well here in Austin. And , totally, if you’re not a Democrat, people don’t think you can be elected to a city council place. Well we’re, we’re, I’m basically an Independent, and all he can say is ‘she’s got a Ron Paul sticker on the back of her car and we can’t have one of those in the city council.’ And that is a direct quote from him.

Health Ranger: Well that’s extraordinary because first of all, the progressive, let’s say Democrat, liberal community, they believe in the legalization of medical marijuana, or the decriminalization-

Laura Pressley: Yes, yes.

Health Ranger: -they believe in clean water.

Laura Pressley: They’re strong environmentalists-

Health Ranger: They don’t believe in any wars.

Laura Pressley: Yes, they’re strong environmentalists, they’re anti-war, and they don’t like giving, you know, their money, taxpayer money to a bunch of rich people.

Health Ranger: Yeah but my point is that Ron Paul supports all of these positions that the liberals support, so why are they, why are they against Ron Paul? I don’t get that.

Laura Pressley: Exactly. Well, of course we know that the mainstream media demonizes Ron Paul for his policies and puts out a lot of disinformation and misinformation because you know, he’s a threat to the establishment.

Health Ranger: True.

Laura Pressley: So the good parts of him that are consistent with the Democratic party, which are the no wars, no bail-outs, no NDAA, they don’t really look at that. They just look at the part, oh, he’s anti-woman, ok, he’s anti-abortion, he’s anti, you know, environment, anti-regulations. So they skew all these components of his candidacy, and I have had to answer for a lot of this during our run for city council and explaining his positions, and it falls on deaf ears because they’ve been told so much by the mainstream media. And my opponent, yeah, go ahead.

Health Ranger: Well, I didn’t mean to make this conversation about Ron Paul, I want to make this conversation about you, Laura Pressley-

Laura Pressley: I know.

Health Ranger: Now, clearly you are pro-woman because you are a woman. And you want clean drinking water for all the women and mothers out there, too.

Laura Pressley: That’s right, we want to protect our babies and our children and our women who are so sensitive to hyperthyroidism. And fluoridation, you know, affects women disproportionately, and it affects minorities disproportionately. Hispanics and African-Americans with fluorosis two to three x higher than it does Anglos. So yes, all of our, all of the things that we’re standing for in the city council are consistent with Democratic party values, and of course we cannot focus on that because his voting record for subsidies and against the environment and against our families with fluoridation, he can’t stand on that. So he has to pick something that’s inflammatory, and it seems to be working to some extent. The other part is, like you said, he is doing a lot of advertising for me here in Austin because there are a lot of Ron Paul supporters here in Austin.

Health Ranger: Well, but let me explain to our viewers why this is really a national issue. It’s, Austin has become the battleground for the fluoride debate. Dr. Paul Connett, for example, came here and testified I believe, was that in front of the city council, or-

Laura Pressley: Yes, many times, he’s been multiple times.

Health Ranger: Yeah, and you’ve been on the issue, InfoWars team, Alex Jones and the whole crew there, they’ve been investigating. In fact, they ran a video that exposed the chemicals that are fluoride is being dumped into the Austin water supply.

Laura Pressley: Yes.

Health Ranger: And, so, if we can get fluoride chemicals, the poison, removed from the water supply in Austin, that really helps set a national precedent. And that’s why electing you, getting you into a city council seat is crucial for having that domino effect across the country. How can people support your campaign, Laura?

Laura Pressley: Well we are, and thank you Mike, we are having a money bomb this week to raise funds for our campaign. And we don’t have the what they call bundlers here in Austin, where these people go out and get money for the candidates and bundle money as it comes in. And typically those bundlers are real estate developers, or you know industry that’s getting subsidies from our city council currently. So we are doing grassroots. We need everybody’s support as much as possible. There’s a $350 limit for individuals and $700 limit, contribution limit for couples. So we have at PressleyForAustin.com, we have a contribute page, and we’re doing the money bomb this week and we need support, we really do. There’s a big push, we have about a month before the election and we’ve got a whole strategy of getting our message out and getting how we’re different from this candidate and how we will not be giving a bunch of our tax dollars to these rich corporations like Apple. Austin city council just gave Apple corporation, the $110 billion cash rich company, the richest company in the world outside of the banking and financial institutions, we just gave them $8.6 million to come and bring 3,600 jobs over the next ten years. And it’s an outrage. Apple was going to come here anyway, and there’s a lot of ways we can generate 300 jobs per year over the next ten years by investing in small businesses and keeping that money in Austin and keeping that money locally. So that’s, we need people’s help with donations if they can do that.

Health Ranger: I want to ask you about Apple in a separate segment with you here, but-

Laura Pressley: Ok.

Health Ranger: First, to wrap this up, I want to also inform people of a little bit about your background and ask you to comment on that, too. You have a PhD in chemistry, you’re from the high-tech industry. You’re also in the natural products industry. You have a rainwater company that sells bottled rainwater. What else do people need to know about you and sort of your background?

Laura Pressley: Well, I’m also a survivor of domestic violence. You know, one of the things that I can provide on the city council is a perspective of how really our city funds can support and help people out of poverty. I have been in a shelter myself with my daughter when she was two years old. She’s now 27. But I have seen the benefit of investing in our community, investing in people. And so not only do I have the tech side background, I was in the semi-conductor industry here in Austin for 17 years and I was an engineer and I was a business manager. I managed a $1 billion business, networking business and I was a cost-reduction manager, so I really have a lot of the expertise to get in the city council and start cutting waste, cutting expenses, but also having the side of seeing how if we could really fund critical and effective programs to get people out of poverty. I’m an example of that.

Health Ranger: But that’s, see, you talk about cutting waste, this is part of the reason why they don’t want you there because a lot of that so-called waste is actually graft and corrupt money going into somebody’s pocket, from what I hear about the city council. It’s very, very corrupt and they want to keep it that way. So you would shake that up, it sounds like.

Laura Pressley: Absolutely, and that’s why they’re pressing so hard on this Ron Paul issue, you know, trying to demonize us. We’re just trying to get in there and do what’s right for the citizens. There is a ton of waste, Mike. I met with one of the, well the CEO of Austin Energy. It’s a $1 billion entity here in our community, and they provide our electricity but there’s some profit they make and that goes into funding these major programs. And I asked him and I said, why are we not doing cost reduction and efficiency and waste reduction programs before you start raising rates to citizens? And he told me, the CEO said, of Austin Energy, he said, we don’t have the bandwidth to go cut costs. I’m like, well you have the bandwidth to go raise rates for all of us. Why can’t you look in your own backyard? So, I pretty much told him what-for and exposed that there’s nothing they’re doing, that the city council setting expectation for them to be less wasteful. And you’re right, it’s going into the pocket of somebody, and that somebody’s not going to be happy. But we are there to shake it up, use our voice, expose what’s going on and make a difference.

Health Ranger: And the people of Austin are never going to benefit from this corruption. I always find it interesting that these people who worship big government, they never benefit from it. The government keeps them in poverty, and somehow they think the government is their savior when they’re getting screwed. It’s like, come on.

Laura Pressley: Well, I think what happens, I agree with you, I think what happens is the middle class and then the upper classes, the upper-middle class in all communities, they have disposable income, so you’re really not affecting their pocket book yet when you’re raising electric rates and raising water rates and what happens is those lower income classes and those people that are already in poverty absolutely are destroyed financially when these things happen. And what happens is they develop these people out and they go in and buy their property and they put mixed-use large commercial developments on that cheap land, and I’ll tell you what, that’s what’s going on in Austin. That’s the cycle.

Health Ranger: Some under the table property deals and the city seizing property from people, using imminent domain and then later selling it a few years later to their friends and connected insiders, things like that.

Laura Pressley: Yes, and then giving these subsidies. You know, the council member that I’m going up against, he actually made the statement two nights ago in a candidate forum that the city needs to balance the risk for these companies coming in and spending millions of dollars in investment and the city needs to help them with that risk and mitigate that risk and I was in shock.

Health Ranger: That sounds just like the banker bail-out justification.

Laura Pressley: It is no different. It’s exactly that. And I say, you know what, I will not give our tax dollars to a bunch of rich corporations, and that’s what I stand for. And the people in Austin are very frustrated by this. And I know they’re frustrated with it across the country because this is a model that’s being translated across all cities: Dallas, Arlington, Houston, all across the country, this is a model that’s happening now where councils are being approached, we’ll come and bring these jobs if you give us this money. And they feel kind of, there’s a fear factor. And that’s one thing that I do not operate off of. I don’t have the fear chip in my head. I missed it somehow when I was born and I just don’t have it, so I don’t operate off of that. So they can’t make those arguments with me and I’ll just give them back the business cases of why we don’t need as citizens to be subsidizing them.

Health Ranger: Yeah, well alright I want to talk to you about that in another segment, but for wrapping this one up, the website folks is PressleyForAustin.com. That’s where you can help contribute to her money bomb, her fundraising effort to actually get a seat on the Austin city council and when that happens, that’ll be a real game changer for the fluoride debate across the country.

Laura Pressley: It will be.

Health Ranger: Laura, I hope that once you’re there in that seat, you’ll still find time to talk with us.

Laura Pressley: I would love to keep doing that, that’s wonderful. And again, what I can provide on the council because I have a chemistry background is I can provide education. And that’s kind of the first step in this whole fluoridation thing. The council’s being educated by the city staff that doesn’t have the most recent data, and really doesn’t have the expertise to analyze and present that data in a way that is cohesive and understandable, and that’s the piece I can bring.

Health Ranger: Sure. Yeah, well, they should be in favor of education, but it’s funny how it’s very selective, where issues like fluoride, they don’t want to know. Don’t tell us, you know. Or economics, basically, it sounds like.

Laura Pressley: Yes.

Health Ranger: With the company subsidies. Anyway, we’ll talk about that in another segment. Thanks for watching, folks, and thank you Laura for joining me today here on the Health Ranger Report.

Shade: Charging Full Throttle to the Top of the Pyramid (Official Movie Trailer)

Full-scale depopulation procedures have been implemented as Population Reduction, Geoengineering, Land Grabs, and Criminal Banking Scams rule the populace.

All human activity will soon be under surveillance and the remaining world population of 1 Billion will exist in Mega-Cities controlled by oligarchs tracking the RFID Chipped Population – the “Useless Eaters” as the elite have termed us.

The future of humanity will be a world in which oligarchs decide who lives and who dies.

This Winter, The Intel Hub’s Shepard Ambellas and renowned filmmaker Jason Bermas (9/11 Loose Change, Fabled Enemies, and The Invisible Empire) join forces to expose the elite’s plans for taking control of every aspect of our lives.

WATCH Shade: The Motion Picture (Official Movie Trailer):

Website: http://www.shadethemotionpicture.com

With appearances from leading contrarian thinkers and alternative media personalities that include Webster Tarpley, Alex Jones, Dan Dicks, and Mark Dice, Shade promises to take us to the very top of the world’s power infrastructure. Those at the top of this pyramid quite literally decide who lives and who dies on planet earth, as they strive maintain complete control of what we eat, how we transact, where we travel, who we communicate with, and who goes to war and when.

Shot from multiple locations such as Maui Hawaii, Chantilly Virginia, several locations in Arizona, Texas, and more, the filmmakers stop at nothing to bring you the compelling details of an overarching diabolic agenda.

This agenda – Does not involve you, or your family.

In fact it involves the systematic extermination of 90% of the earth’s population.

The “Useless Eaters”

The bottom line is, that if you’re not privy to the agenda of the elite, then you are one of the “useless eaters” that is and always has been nothing more than a means to an end.

Visit the Shade web site to learn more about the film, access the documentary evidence behind the movie, and learn more about the individuals who are bringing you the unfettered truth about what’s really going on behind the scenes.

Obama’s below-the-radar healthcare push

By Sam Baker and Elise Viebeck

The Obama administration is employing an aggressive ground game to build support for its controversial healthcare law that often reaches beyond the Beltway.

While President Obama doesn’t mention healthcare much in his public appearances, the administration consistently touts its popular reforms to make the case for a law whose approval rating is stuck just below 50 percent.

In the two years since Obama signed the Affordable Care Act, the administration has released a deluge of reports, press releases and blog posts from the White House and the Health and Human Services Department (HHS). The administration consistently highlights new policies as they take effect and tries to keep other popular provisions, such as discounts on prescription drugs, in the news.

Rep. Issa circulates contempt resolution against Attorney General Eric Holder

By Jordy Yager

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) has circulated a draft copy of a resolution that would hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.

The 44-page measure was sent to members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday in an attempt to shore up support for what would be the toughest action taken by Issa as chairman of the powerful panel.

Issa has been investigating the botched gun tracking operation Fast and Furious for more than a year and has repeatedly expressed his frustration at the Department of Justice’s lack of cooperation.

Issa has issued two subpoenas to obtain documents from the DOJ, and is arguing that the agency’s glacial pace in returning the requested information provides cause for holding Holder in contempt of Congress.

“The Justice Department’s failure to respond appropriately to the allegations of whistleblowers and to cooperate with congressional oversight has crossed the line of appropriate conduct for a government agency,” reads a 17-page memo attached to the draft copy of the resolution on contempt circulated to members.

“Congress now faces a moment of decision between exerting its full authority to compel an agency refusing to cooperate with congressional oversight or accepting a dangerous expansion of executive-branch authority and unilateral action allowing agencies to set their own terms for cooperating with congressional oversight.”

Issa says he has received about 7,300 documents from the DOJ. That’s only a small fraction of the documents that Justice has provided to its inspector general, who has been conducting an investigation of Fast and Furious for more than a year.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) recently said the oversight committee has received documents in only 10 of the 22 categories that Issa requested in last year’s subpoena.

The DOJ has said it has been responsive to Issa’s large request for documents. In some cases, the agency opted not to turn over documents because their public release could damage ongoing criminal cases, according to agency officials.

Blind Chinese dissident calls Congress, wants meeting with Secretary Clinton

By Pete Kasperowicz – 05/03/12 04:26 PM ET

The Chinese dissident at the center of a political firestorm called a hearing Thursday and told lawmakers he wants to meet with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Chinese human rights activist Chen Guangcheng called a hearing set up to explore his efforts to leave China and escape persecution—apparently from a Chinese hospital room.

“I want to meet with Secretary Clinton,” he said on the phone. “I hope I can get more help from her. I also want to thank her face to face.”

Chen added that he is most concerned with his family, and said, “I really want to know what’s going on with them.”

“I want to thank all of you for your care and your love,” he added, through a translation by Pastor Bob Fu, Founder and President, ChinaAid Association. Fu was a witness at Thursday’s hearing of the Congressional-Executive Commission on China.

Chen is at the center of a diplomatic row between the U.S. and China that has become a political liability for President Obama.

Wall Street CEOs Personally Lobby Federal Reserve to Weaken New Financial Regulations

By Travis Waldron

Federal regulators in charge of writing the Volcker Rule, which would ban federally-insured financial institutions from risky proprietary trading, are moving at a faster pace than expected and could have the rule finalized by September.

Wall Street banks have been lobbying to weaken the rule since it was originally proposed by its namesake, former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker, and now that it is just months away from finalization, their efforts are getting stronger. The chief executives of six major Wall Street banks, led by JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, traveled to Washington yesterday to personally lobby the Federal Reserve on multiple issues — weakening the Volcker Rule chief among them — Bloomberg reports:

Everyone Agrees That the Decline in Pay has Been Understated

logo private sector of the americas

By Dean Baker

Jason Richwine and Andrew Biggs have a piece saying that many public-sector workers are overpaid in which they also say that I agree with them in much of their analysis. This is true.

Let me outline what I think are areas of agreement. First, we seem to agree that if we just compare the wages paid to public-sector and private-sector workers, the latter do better. When we adjust for education and experience, private sector workers tend to get higher pay than their counterparts in the public sector.

This is not true across the board. My colleague John Schmitt has found that while workers with college and advanced degrees (e.g. doctors and lawyers) get less in the public sector, less-educated workers get paid the same or slightly more than their counterparts in the private sector. In other words, there is less inequality in public sector wages than we see in the private sector, with the average being somewhat lower.

We also agree that the lower wages for public-sector workers are largely or completely offset by higher benefits. The key difference here is that public-sector workers are far more likely to have a traditional defined benefit pension plan. Most workers in the public sector still have defined benefit pensions, while less than 20 percent of workers in the private sector do. (The difference is considerably less stark if we restrict the comparison to large private firms, where defined benefit plans are still common.)

Expect stagnant U.S. economy in 2013: Roubini

Second half of a double-dip recession is possible, economist says

 |Russ Britt, MarketWatch

LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) — The U.S. economy could retreat into stagnation in 2013 and ultimately cast the nation into the second half of a double-dip recession, high-profile economist Nouriel Roubini said Wednesday.

Speaking at the Milken Institute’s Global Conference in Beverly Hills, Calif., Roubini noted that real wages for U.S. workers are not growing and that America’s crushing debt is strangling growth.

That translates into possible fiscal decay in which GDP will be “lucky” to grow 2% this year and faces the prospect of retreating into near-zero growth next year, according to Roubini.

Both political parties can share blame for the trouble, he added, arguing that the Republican Party wants to limit spending and Democrats don’t want to cut programs, and so are at an impasse. Little is likely to change regardless of this year’s presidential election, as Senate Democrats are likely to use the filibuster even if Republican candidate Mitt Romney unseats President Barack Obama.

“If there is gridlock, it’s going to get worse,” Roubini said.

General Nikolai Makarov, Russia’s most senior military commander, warned Nato that if it proceeded with a controversial American missile defence system, force would be used against it.

“A decision to use destructive force pre-emptively will be taken if the situation worsens,” he said.

Gen Makarov has threatened to target Nato bases hosting an anti-missile system designed by the US to protect European allies against attack from states such as Iran.

He said that Russia would counter Nato deployment by stationing short-range Iskander missiles in the Russian Kaliningrad exclave near Poland, creating the worst military tensions since the Cold War.

“The deployment of new strike weapons in Russia’s south and northwest – including of Iskander systems in Kaliningrad – is one of our possible options for destroying the system’s European infrastructure,” he said.

Russia Says May Strike Preemptively Against NATO Missile Defense

Published on May 3, 2012 by

Russia said on Thursday (May 3) that it may use pre-emptive force against the NATO missile defense system if it considers the threat of it growing.

Russia hosted an international conference on missile defense in Moscow on Thursday where Russian army officials showed computer simulation models to illustrate how they believe the planned U.S. and NATO missile shield threatens its security.

NATO officials are hopeful an agreement with Russia will be reached before the NATO summit but Russia is adamant their concerns are not being listened to.

Washington says the shield, due to be completed in four phases by roughly 2020, is meant to counter a potential threat from Iran. Moscow says the system will undermine Russia’s nuclear deterrent because it could also give the West the ability to shoot down Russian missiles.

The shield’s first phase is to be declared up and running at the summit in Chicago later this month.

Russia and NATO agreed in 2010 to seek ways to cooperate on missile defense but have failed to reach a deal. The Kremlin wants a legally binding guarantee that the system will not be used against Russia. The United States says it cannot agree to any formal limits on missile defense.

In the meantime, Moscow said it can strike the missile defense system elements pre-emptively if they are considered a serious threat to Russia’s security.

Two blasts kill 14, injure over 80 in Dagestan

Published on May 3, 2012 by

14 people have been killed and up to 87 others injured as two powerful explosions hit Makhachkala, the capital city of Dagestan in southern Russia, security services report. The first bomb was detonated by a suicide car bomber not far from a police checkpoint on the outskirts of Makhachkala, when the car was stopped for a regular check. The second bomb, which caused most of the casualties, struck when rescuers arrived at the scene 20 minutes later. The blast caused a fire but it was soon extinguished. The combined power of the blasts was equivalent to 60 kg of TNT, according to officials from the National Antiterrorism Committee. The incidents are being treated as terror attacks. RT’s Sean Thomas has the details and also RT talks to Doctor Walid Phares, a counter-terrorism adviser to the US Congress.

“We are Preparing for Massive Civil War,” Says DHS Informant

Posted by

In a riveting interview on TruNews Radio, Wednesday, private investigator Doug Hagmann said high-level, reliable sources told him the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is preparing for “massive civil war” in America.

“Folks, we’re getting ready for one massive economic collapse,” Hagmann told TruNews host Rick Wiles.

“We have problems . . . The federal government is preparing for civil uprising,” he added, “so every time you hear about troop movements, every time you hear about movements of military equipment, the militarization of the police, the buying of the ammunition, all of this is . . . they (DHS) are preparing for a massive uprising.”

Hagmann goes on to say that his sources tell him the concerns of the DHS stem from a collapse of the U.S. dollar and the hyperinflation a collapse in the value of the world’s primary reserve currency implies to a nation of 311 million Americans, who, for the significant portion of the population, is armed.

Uprisings in Greece is, indeed, a problem, but an uprising of armed Americans becomes a matter of serious national security, a point addressed in a recent report by the Pentagon and highlighted as a vulnerability and threat to the U.S. during war-game exercises at the Department of Defense last year, according to one of the DoD’s war-game participants, Jim Rickards, author of Currency Wars: The Making of the Next Global Crisis.

Through his sources, Hagmann confirmed Rickards’ ongoing thesis of a fear of a U.S. dollar collapse at the hands of the Chinese (U.S. treasury bond holders of approximately $1 trillion) and, possibly, the Russians (threatening to launch a gold-backed ruble as an attractive alternative to the U.S. dollar) in retaliation for aggressive U.S. foreign policy initiatives against China’s and Russia’s strategic allies Iran and Syria.

“The one source that we have I’ve known since 1979,” Hagmann continued.  “He started out as a patrol officer and currently he is now working for a federal agency under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security; he’s in a position to know what policies are being initiated, what policies are being planned at this point, and he’s telling us right now—look, what you’re seeing is just the tip of the iceberg.  We are preparing, we, meaning the government, we are preparing for a massive civil war in this country.”

ALEC Wasn’t First Industry Trojan Horse Behind Fracking Disclosure Bill – Enter Council of State Governments

By Steve HornFile:House Financial Services Committee hearing with Ben Bernanke.jpg

19th Century German statesman Otto von Bismarck once said, “If you like laws and sausages, you should never watch either one being made.”

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), put on the map by the Center for Media and Democracy in its “ALEC Exposed” project, is the archetype of von Bismarck’s truism. So too are the fracking chemical disclosure bills that have passed and are currently being pushed for in statehouses nationwide.

State-level fracking chemical disclosure bills have been called a key piece of reform in the push to hold the unconventional gas industry accountable for its actions. The reality, though, is murkier.

On April 21, The New York Times penned an investigation making that clear. The Times wrote:

Rupert Murdoch in “Unprecedented Firestorm” As UK Panel Finds Him Unfit to Run Media Empire

Published on May 3, 2012 by

DemocracyNow.org – A British parliamentary report has issued a scathing report that finds Rupert Murdoch is “not a fit person” to run a major international media company because of how News Corp. handled its phone hacking scandal. The Parliamentary Select Committee on Culture, Media and Sport said Murdoch and his son, James, showed “willful blindness” about the scale of phone hacking at the News of the World tabloid. The panel’s finding has prompted a U.S. watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, to call on the Federal Communications Commission to revoke News Corp’s 27 Fox broadcast licenses in the United States. We speak with David Leigh, investigations editor at The Guardian, the news outlet that first exposed the phone-hacking practices taking place within the Murdoch media empire. Leigh says the British panel’s findings could threaten Murdoch’s media presence across the Atlantic: “People are now beginning to say, ‘Doesn’t this bleed over into the man who runs Fox News and has all those TV outlets in the U.S.?’ If he is not fit and proper person in Britain, then he is not a fit and proper person in the U.S. either.”

Now a Department of Defense document has been leaked to the Web that details “Internment and Resettlement Operations.” The manual outlines policies for processing detainees in internment camps domestically and abroad and how to “re-educate” unruly activists. Alex Jones, host of the Alex Jones Show, joins us to find out what this means to people across the globe.

Pungent Chemical Smell Alarms Gush Dan Residents

Home Front Command reports source of smell drilling off coast of Ashdod; environment officials: gas concentrations ‘negligible’

By Gabe Kahn

Panic in the Dan!

Panic in the Dan!
Flash 90

There were reports in the Tel Aviv and the Sharon region of a strong chemical smell on Thursday.

Most complainants reported a strong smell of chlorine or bromine, or insecticide.

While most residents simply closed their windows and remained calm, others became concerned there had been a chemical attack.

Police and city administrations in the region received numerous calls, and Environment Ministry officials were dispatched to take readings.

The officials reported low concentrations of gas in the air, which they say do not pose a danger to public health.

“All measurements in the Tel Aviv area are negligible,” they reported. “The Environmental Protection Agency is continuing to perform measurements, and trying to locate the source of odors. We are continuing to monitor other areas too.”

The officials also stressed they had yet to identify the souce of the smell.

However, a local environmental consultant told Channel 10 that concentrations producing a pungent scent were not healthy.

“This is an exceptional case,” the consultant said. “Such chemicals in high concentrations can be dangerous. The smell is quite strong.”

“The city administration could not identify the source,” he added.

However, the IDF Home Front Command identified the source of the smell as drilling off the coast of Ashdod.

Ramat Hasharon Mayor Itzik Rochberger complained that while the HFC told him the source of the smell, officials from the Environment Ministry were still in the dark.

“If it were a harmful substance what would happen?” he asked. “Why is no synchronization between the government systems?”
