Sunday, Bloody Sunday

(LewRockwell) – Bono wrote this song in 1983. He was describing the slaughter of thirteen unarmed Catholic civil rights protestors in Derry, Northern Ireland on January 30, 1972 by British troops. Many of the victims were shot in the back. The Irish Republican Army employed this tragic event to mobilize thousands of recruits to their cause. The incident triggered more violence that lasted for decades and resulted in many more senseless deaths. When governments make imprudent decisions and craft irrational policies there are consequences. Read More Here

Who Killed Martin Luther King?

(LewRockwell) – Douglas Valentine worked as a researcher for the King family and testified at the trial about suspicions that Dr. King might have been under U.S. government surveillance at the time of the assassination.

The ‘ugly’ truth – a general election or the election of a general and what democracy truly is!

(TPUC) – The general election – why are you electing a new general – a general over what you might ask? It is very simple. Maybe you are electing a new general over the legion(s). The truth is you are not electing anyone and it has all been sorted out in advance, because it would never be allowed to be down to just CHANCE!! The election is nothing more than a stage show to make you think you live in a democracy and you think by voting you are taking part. Sorry complete rubbish! Continue reading

Video: Tyranny Response Team Engages Gestapo Youth

All great tyrannies work at capturing the minds of the youth. No longer are our children going to be learning survival skills, camping and hunting abilities. Instead they will be training to police and control us.
These are the new Boy Scouts of America, black uniform wearing “authorities”. Understand that this is what police states always do before they truly turn the entire system against the public at large. This also serves to condition you to accept roving SS styled police on the streets everywhere.
This is all for you, the average patriotic American. Please see the evidence below. Don’t let the youth become indoctrinated, inform them about the Constitution! Continue reading

One thing is certain. If Obama and his “economic advisers” have their way, you will be paying significantly higher taxes directly to the banksters. Since payroll taxes are already egregiously high, the preferred method is either a sales tax or a so-called value added tax, also known as VAT. Glenn Beck is a fan of this form of government fleecing while his “conservative” counterpart Bill O’Reilly prefers a straight sales tax to pay down the national debt. Read More Here

(LewRockwell) – Anarchy in the Streets

Chaos often breeds life, when order breeds habit. ~ Henry Adams
How often do discussions on the prospects of a stateless society produce the response that, without government, there would be “anarchy in the streets”? To many people, the streets are symbolic of society, and with good reason: they are the most visible networks through which we interact with one another. They are much like the major arteries (we even use that word to describe streets), veins, and capillaries that transport blood throughout our bodies. Each can be thought of as the carrier of both food and waste to and from individual cells. Read More Here

(NaturalNews) – New study: Breast cancer deaths lower in areas without mammograms

A 2005 study concluded that a push in Denmark to screen large numbers of women for breast cancer with mammography had reduced breast cancer deaths in Copenhagen by a whopping 25 percent. Sounds like proof that regular mammograms are truly life-savers, right? Wrong.
