The Democrats Have Begun to Move Against the Web: No More Unregulated Political Ads

It’s desperation time!
A Democrat on the Federal Elections Commission has moved to regulate unpaid political ads on the Web. The FEC already regulates paid ads. This would mean that sites could no longer link to free political ads unless they show ‘balance.’
Democratic FEC Vice Chair Ann M. Ravel announced plans to begin the process to win regulations on Internet-based campaigns and videos, currently free from most of the FEC’s rules. ‘A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long over due,’ she said.
Why is this important? Because it is a clear admission that the Democrats know they are losing the media wars where it counts most: the World Wide Web.
This is a desperation move. It is not being launched in Congress, where it has no chance of getting through the House. It is coming from inside the executive: an almost unregulated bureaucracy.
What triggered this?

Hillary – Says Business does NOT Create Jobs – Washington Does?

We have a very serious problem with Hillary. I was asked years ago to review Hillary’sCommodity Trading to explain what went on. Effectively, they did trades and simply put winners in her account and the losers in her lawyer’s. This way she gets money that is laundered through the markets – something that would get her 25 years today.
People forget, but Hillary was really President – not Bill. Just 4 days after taking office, Hillary was given the authority to start a task force for healthcare reform. The problem was, her vision was unbelievable. The costs upon business were oppressive so much so that not even the Democrats could support her. When asked how was a small business mom and pop going to pay for healthcare she said if they could not afford it they should not be in business. From that moment on, my respect for her collapsed. She revealed herself as a real Marxist.
Now, that she can taste the power of Washington, and I dare say she will not be a yes person as Obama and Bush seem to be, therein lies the real danger. Giving her the power of dictator, which is the power of executive orders, I think I have to leave the USA just to be safe.

False Flag? WA School Shooting During Drill and Right Before Gun Control Vote

What are the odds?
Just a few weeks ago, I wrote an article about how a few elite billionaires including Michael Bloomberg and Bill Gates have spent some $8 million to make sure Washington’s controversial gun control bill, Initiative 594, will appear on the state’s November ballot and that voters will be flooded with anti-gun propaganda in the lead up.

I-594 would require universal background checks, going so far as a making it so that a hunter would not be allowed to hand a gun to a friend on a hunting trip without triggering the background check provisions in the anti-gun bill.

Obama’s Politics and Policies are Indeed on November’s Ballot

Let’s get something straight right upfront… Barack HUSSEIN Obama has NO love for America, Americans, our military or our veterans, Israel or any of our other true allies, nor does he hold any affinity whatsoever for Christians and Jews…period. Barack HUSSEIN Obama is indeed (I believe) a muslim and a supporter of all things islamic… of all things counter to the Judeo-Christian principals, morals, and values upon which this great nation was founded…and the fabric of our American society in his eyes would be better served by prayer rugs extending from one coast of America to the other.
Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s presidency is a failure…a complete and total failure. The man who promised ‘hope and change’ instead has delivered NOTHING but ‘distrust, stagnation, utter despair, and disgust.’
And his response to the anger building NOT just amongst Republicans and TEA Party members but even amongst some of his own party’s loyal has shown that this man elected tothe highest office in our land…or should I say this man who stole an election through voter fraud and intimidation, machine tampering, and the dead rising from their slumber to vote…has proven time and again that America’s enemies are indeed his trusted friends and allies.
And while the name Barack HUSSEIN Obama might NOT be on the November ballot, know that his politics and policies…both domestic and foreign…sure the hell are.
On the domestic front, we all know Obama’s so-touted economic recovery is anything but…that the jobs numbers released every week are in reality numbers that hide the all important truth that more Americans are dropping out of the work force then ever before or are being demoted to part-time employment.
And need I mention the word ‘ObamaCare’…the anything but ‘if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor…if you like your insurance you can keep your insurance’ plan, complete with its anything but cost effective continuing to rise premiums…complete with its ‘death panels’ that some of us have already, unfortunately, witnessed in action.
And lest we forget his plan to grant amnesty through his ‘pen and his phone’ to 34 million ILLEGALS so that they can compete for and take away jobs from mostly the poor and his own core black base. And we know this is being done solely to increase the Democratic voting blockfor generations to come as these people…these now ‘LEGAL ILLEGALS’ will gladly sell their souls and their votes to the Democratic party in exchange for even more freebies and handouts then they now already readily and greedily receive.
Simply put…jobs for Americans be damned…jobs in exchange for votes will become both this administration’s and any future Democratic administration’s mantra as taking jobs away from LEGAL Americans will well fulfill their goal of having our economy limp along until it finally just gives out and crashes.

JUDGE: OBAMA ‘A CANDIDATE FOR IMPEACHMENT’ IF HE GIVES ILLEGALS GREEN CARDS

Former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano hit out at the President this week over revelations that the Obama administration is overseeing a federal order for 34 million blank work permits and green cards, an indication that Obama is set to issue an executive order on amnesty after the midterm election.
Speaking on Fox News, the libertarian analyst said ‘He can’t make illegals legal. But he can do the following: he can open the borders, arguably he did that a few months ago with the Central American children in Texas; he can issue green cards to whoever he wants; he can stop deportations for the rest of his presidency.’
‘…both Republican Congresses and Democratic Congresses have given to Republican and Democratic presidents extraordinary authority.’ Napolitano clarified.
The order for the blank cards, to be delivered over the course of five years, was actioned by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) department, which posted a draft solicitation earlier this month announcing its intention to seek a vendor capable of delivering ‘an estimated 4 million cards annually with the potential to buy as many as 34 million cards total.’

Obama May go down as Worst President in History

It is interesting to watch how the Democrats try to distance themselves from Obama. He may go down as the absolute worst president in history. One has to ask was this some sort of plot to make sure no black president will ever be elected again? Is Obama really in charge? Perhaps they just hand him a golf club like Hillary handed Clinton bimbos so she could run the joint.

The Challenges of Defending Your Child’s Mind from Propaganda

In great empires the people who live in the capital, and in the provinces remote from the scene of action, feel, many of them, scarce any inconveniency from the war; but enjoy, at their ease, the amusement of reading in the newspapers the exploits of their own fleets and armies. To them this amusement compensates the small difference between the taxes which they pay on account of the war, and those which they had been accustomed to pay in time of peace. They are commonly dissatisfied with the return of peace, which puts an end to their amusement, and to a thousand visionary hopes of conquest and national glory from a longer continuance of the war.
– Adam Smith in The Wealth of Nations
Let’s face it, your child’s mind is fertile ground for oligarchs, corrupt politicians and any other thieving member of the so-called ‘ruling elite’ who aim to enslave the masses both mentally and monetarily. Unfortunately, the propaganda that comes from the government and our largest corporations is perceived as being absolute truth by most people. If you’re like me, at one point in time you had to wake up to it all and accept that you had been completely brainwashed for the first few decades for your life.
On a parental level, defending my child’s mind against blatant lies and deceit from the media, military industrial complex and corporatism is really not that difficult. But what about their grandparents, cousins or the kids next door?
I truly believe that most Americans suffer from Stockholm Syndrome, a psychological phenomenon where the victim identifies with the attacker to the point they will even defend their captor and even treat certain forms of abuse as a form of compassion.

Henry Giroux On the Rise of Neoliberalism As a Political Ideology

“There is a lack of critical assessment of the past. But you have to understand that the current ruling elite is actually the old ruling elite. So they are incapable of a self-critical approach to the past.”
Ryszard Kapuscinski
Are they incapable, or merely unwilling? That is the credibility trap, the inability to address the key problems because the ruling elite must risk or even undermine their own undeserved power to do so.
I think this interview below highlights the false dichotomy between communism and free market capitalism that was created in the 1980’s largely by Thatcher’s and Reagan’s handlers. The dichotomy was more properly between communist government and democracy, of the primacy of the individual over the primacy of the organization and the state as embodied in fascism and the real world implementations of communism in Russia and China.
But we never think of it that way any more, if at all. It is one of the greatest public relation coups in history. One form of organizational oppression by the Russiannomenklatura was replaced by the oppression by the oligarchs and their Corporations, in the name of freedom.
Free market capitalism, under the banner of the efficient markets hypothesis, has taken the place of democratic ideals as the primary good as embodied in the original framing of the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution.
It is no accident that the individual and their concerns have become subordinated to the corporate welfare and the profits of the upper one percent.

Don’t Blame Obama (He Has No Power)

The genius H. L. Mencken put it best when he wrote that ‘every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods.’
We also like the one from P. J. O’Rourke, who wrote…
‘Don’t vote! It just encourages the bastards.’
And we can’t forget Twain’s pithy observation…
‘If voting made a difference,’ he said, ‘they wouldn’t let us do it.’
Until now, this area of debate has been reserved only for the fringes. The question of whether or not to vote, that is. Or if voting is actually effective in changing governmental policy (the answer? No).
As you’ll see in a moment, though, this debate is slipping into the mainstream. And in a very big way.
To begin, let’s rewind six years…
‘The voters who put Barack Obama in office expected some big changes,’ The Boston Globe article begins.
‘From the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping to Guantanamo Bay to the Patriot Act, candidate Obama was a defender of civil liberties and privacy, promising a dramatically different approach from his predecessor.
‘But six years into his administration, the Obama version of national security looks almost indistinguishable from the one he inherited. Guantanamo Bay remains open. The NSA has, if anything, become more aggressive in monitoring Americans. Drone strikes have escalated. Most recently it was reported that the same president who won a Nobel Prize in part for promoting nuclear disarmament is spending up to $1 trillion modernizing and revitalizing America’s nuclear weapons.’
‘It has long been the province of conspiracy theorists,’ Mickey Edwards writes in a separate article in the Globe, ‘to claim that the real power of government is not wielded by the obvious practitioners of statecraft – presidents, members of Congress, the judiciary – but by secret or semi-secret entities, real wizards whose hidden machinations send us to war, sell us out to enemies, siphon public treasure into private hands.
‘Depending on your talk show or paranoia of choice, these are the bankers, oil barons, one-worlders, war profiteers, Bilderbergers, Masons, Catholics, Jews, or Trilateralists. Our formal institutions, in this scenario, are stage sets, Potemkin villages; our officials are puppets; we are an unsuspecting audience.’
Yes, there are countless ways to say the government is corrupt.
But here’s the thing…
At their core, all these theories have a ‘shadow government’ of sorts running things behind the scenes.
And, according to one highly regarded professor, that might not be too far from reality.

Christophe de Margerie: Total’s mustachioed maverick

Asked in 2010 if oil companies were right to make deals with the world’s despots and dictators, Christophe de Margerie, the boss of Total who died in a plane crash in Russia Monday night, gave a typically unequivocal answer: “bloody right.”
It was a reply that summed up a man unapologetic about doing whatever was necessary to keep the oil and profits flowing, no matter the opinion of the public, politicians or regulators.
De Margerie’s bushy, walrus-like facial hair earned him the nickname “Big Moustache”, but in his younger years he went by a different sobriquet – “Mr Middle East” – heading Total’s operations in that area from 1995.
It was a job that saw him scour for oil in some of the world’s most politically volatile places and made him a natural choice to head the French oil giant’s exploration and production department when the role became vacant in 2002.

France moves to make presidents impeachable

The French parliament voted Tuesday in favour of a draft law that could, for the first time, make it possible to remove the country’s president from office through a US-style impeachment.
The bill, already passed by France’s lower house, was approved by the Senate by 324 votes to 18.
It will now go to France’s Constitutional Council, which must decide if the bill complies with the French constitution, before becoming law.
If approved, the law would represent a radical change to the legal status of the French head of state – who has so far enjoyed greater legal protection than almost any other Western leader.

Spain’s Divide and Unconquer of Catalonia

Don Quijones, freelance writer, translator in Barcelona, Spain. Editor at WOLF STREET. Mexico is his country-in-law. Raging Bull-Shit is his modest attempt to scrub away the lathers of soft soap peddled by political and business leaders and their loyal mainstream media. This article is a Wolf Street exclusive.
There increasingly appears to be no way forward and no way out of the constitutional spat between Madrid and Catalonia. Rather then addressing the crisis in a proactive manner (i.e. by negotiating with the Catalan government on equal terms), all Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and his coterie of ministers and advisors have done is to shoot off one threat after another about the dire consequences Catalonia would face if it were to call a referendum.
For the last two years, Madrid’s only proactive policy has been to sow seeds of discord in Catalonia’s fragile coalition government. In the last week it finally reaped the spoils of its campaign. Without consulting any of his coalition partners, the leader of Catalonia’s regional government, Artur Mas, announced the cancellation of Catalonia’s non-binding referendum on national independence, which had been scheduled for November 9th.
Instead, he said, the government would hold a ‘symbolic’ consultation – one which will basically involve thousands of wholly impartial pro-independence supporters collecting votes on the streets of Catalonia. There will be no voting register, no legal supervision and no control as to who votes and how many times. With no means to prevent ballot-box stuffing, deceased voting or voting with somebody else’s ID, the proposed pseudo-poll can be assigned virtually no legitimacy whatsoever. It is a farce that would risk doing more harm than good to the aspiring nation’s international reputation.
Naturally, Mas’s unilateral declaration has not been well received by his partners in government. At least two members of the four-party coalition, the Catalan Republican Left (now the strongest party in the polls) and Iniciativa, have called for Mas to cancel the mock referendum. They have also demanded that he call an immediate election – and not just any election, but a plebiscite-style one in which voters will be asked to vote for a party based purely on its stance on the independence issue. Once returned to parliament, the new government will call a vote on the issue. If the secessionists win an absolute majority, the parliament will unilaterally declare independence.
A Bottom Up Movement…

This Week’s JB with SFC

There was another great discussion last night between Professor Cohen and John Batchelor. Just because the Ukraine Crisis is not currently the lead global story does NOT mean it has gone away. And with the onset of winter, you’d better still be paying attention to this situation.

THE RISE OF THE TRUE LIBERTARIAN – AND THE LIBERTARIAN EVENT OF THE YEAR

People in the US and around the world are slowly figuring out that their systems are not “their” systems but systems placed over them to control and steal from them. Slowly the Republican versus Democrat debate in the US is being seen more and more as a farce. The savior, Barack Obama, is sitting at record low approval ratings, Congress approval ratings were in the single digits for much of the last year, the End the Fed movement continues to grow, support for the war of the month (ISIS) has fallen dramatically in just the last few weeks and mainstream news media ratings continue to drop off a cliff.
The grand majority still don’t see the full extent of the problem. Many figure these systems just need to be “fixed” but the point they are missing, and will soon realize, is that the political, financial, monetary and central banking systems themselves are inherently anti-freedom and anti-prosperity. Unfortunately, many won’t realize it until they’ve all collapsed.
In the meantime libertarianism, anarcho-capitalism and Austrian economics are growing in popularity worldwide. While still relatively small they are growing nearly exponentially as the internet gives people access to information they have been shielded from for decades if not centuries or millennia.

U.S. Is Now Directly Arming The Islamic State To Push The Agenda Of Removing Assad – Episode 498

The following video was published by X22Report on Oct 21, 2014
Europe is now introducing a new austerity plan so each country can receive more debt. McDonald’s sales are down. Existing home sales pushed up by condos and speculators. CEO of Total dies in plane crash, he mentioned that oil does not need to be sold in dollars. Swedish banks start enforcing FATCA rules.21 cities in US say its illegal to feed homeless. Liberia sees the Ebola spreading slower. The U. S. enforces screening for West African countries. Obama getting ready to push his EO for illegal amnesty through right after the elections. Iran doesn’t trust the US coalition fighting the Islamic State. U. S. directly arming Islamic State and sending humanitarian aid to them.

Vote all you want. The secret government won’t change.

The voters who put Barack Obama in office expected some big changes. From the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping to Guantanamo Bay to the Patriot Act, candidate Obama was a defender of civil liberties and privacy, promising a dramatically different approach from his predecessor.
But six years into his administration, the Obama version of national security looks almost indistinguishable from the one he inherited. Guantanamo Bay remains open. The NSA has, if anything, become more aggressive in monitoring Americans. Drone strikes have escalated. Most recently it was reported that the same president who won a Nobel Prize in part for promoting nuclear disarmament is spending up to $1 trillion modernizing and revitalizing America’s nuclear weapons.
Why did the face in the Oval Office change but the policies remain the same? Critics tend to focus on Obama himself, a leader who perhaps has shifted with politics to take a harder line. But Tufts University political scientist Michael J. Glennon has a more pessimistic answer: Obama couldn’t have changed policies much even if he tried.
Though it’s a bedrock American principle that citizens can steer their own government by electing new officials, Glennon suggests that in practice, much of our government no longer works that way. In a new book, “National Security and Double Government,” he catalogs the ways that the defense and national security apparatus is effectively self-governing, with virtually no accountability, transparency, or checks and balances of any kind. He uses the term “double government”: There’s the one we elect, and then there’s the one behind it, steering huge swaths of policy almost unchecked. Elected officials end up serving as mere cover for the real decisions made by the bureaucracy.

Does This Look Like a President That Can Save You From Ebola?

The Blaze is reporting that during President Barack Obama’s speech held in Maryland at a Democratic campaign rally, crowd members, almost exclusively of an audience made up Blacks headed for the exits as Obama began to speak. Reuters reported that this act ‘underscored his continuing unpopularity’ .
Most Democratic candidates have had the good sense to avoid Obama like he has Ebola. However, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, who’s running for governor, is not one of them.
As Obama spoke at the rally for Brown in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, near Washington, a ‘steady stream of people walked out of the auditorium,’ Reuters reported. Obama was heckled as he attempted on behalf of Anthony Brown.
More hecklers attacked the President. Race is not a significant issue when it comes to assessing the lethality of the Obama presidency when it comes to his administration. Thank God that these Americans exercised their First Amendment right to voice their displeasure and fear of a President who is clearly every American’s most significant threat. This is a case of Americans banding together and saying in unison, ‘Enough’! From three thousand miles away, I lend my voice in support as should all Americans.
We desperately need to band together as Americans to stand up to the globalist tyranny being perpetrated against the American people by this administration. God bless these wonderful and brave people for their bravery and commitment to our ideals as Americans. Let this be a rallying cry. It might be too late but, by God, we can sure as hell try and follow the example of these people.

Liberals Freak Out Over Texas Voter Identification Requirements: ‘Discriminatory Law’

Last week the U. S. Supreme Court gave Texas the go-ahead to enforce voter identification laws at the polls. The court rejected an emergency request from the Justice Department and civil rights group to overturn the law with a majority of Justices on the court siding with Texas.
The move has liberals all over the country up in arms because the legislation opens the door for other states to move in lockstep with Texas.
Though the majority did not issue a statement, a dissenting opinion from liberal judges that included Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, says that the law is purposefully discriminatory.
‘The greatest threat to public confidence in elections in this case is the prospect of enforcing a purposefully discriminatory law, one that likely imposes an unconstitutional poll tax and risks denying the right to vote to hundreds of thousands of eligible voters.’
At the Huffington Post, a liberal hotbed of progressive ideas, readers took to their keyboards to show their outrage over the new law.
The law, which allows for seven (7) different methods of identification at the polls, has been attacked, among other things, as an attempt to instill white rule over minorities:
