This is not about political ideology or whether or not you supported Andrew Breitbart's views on certain issues, liked his personality, or agreed with his methods. This is about a man who died-- a man who made many enemies and who was threatening to bring down the person who holds the most powerful official position in the world, as well as any people who had a stake in keeping him there.

When one loses a child, belief that there was a divine reason for it sometimes helps fill the emptiness. But what about situations in which the tragedy was not God's will, but rather resulted from the will of men? What if it happened because of a war that didn't need to be fought? To those who desire wars in Iran and Syria, or don't care that they're coming, it boils down to a simple question-- what the hell is wrong with you?

"There are roads which must not be followed, armies which must not be attacked, towns which must not be besieged, positions which must not be contested, commands of the sovereign which must not be obeyed". Though words written in ancient times are open to a variety of modern interpretations, the advice offered in this passage is applicable in a very specific way to our current situation in the United States.

The purpose here is not to question the sincerity of Perry's journalism or accuse him of being part of a disinformation conspiracy, but simply to look at the news of the alleged Mossad false flag in comparison to the past actions of the United States government, as well as those of Israel's, and point out the bigger issue it reveals.

With Americans' student loan debts reaching 1 trillion dollars this year, there have been a number of noisy people calling for the federal government to erase student loan debts entirely in order to create "stimulus' for the economy. Forgetting economic arguments go for a moment, nobody who is calling for this student loan forgiveness seems to be addressing the obvious problem with doing it--it's not fair! And it never can be.
Friday, August 12, 2011 Is China Encircling India?
On August 10, the Times of India reported that the Chinese military was participating in joint war games with Pakistan 25 km from the border of India's western Rajasthan region.

Regardless of one's beliefs about the constitutionality of these programs, both sides of the debate should be quick to notice the priorities of the President, and his so called opposition, turning to programs so many Americans have already paid into and are depending on instead of first looking overseas at the world empire that is bankrupting us all.

The same day that the media announced that 10 congressmen were suing President Obama over his violation of the War Powers Act while executing his war in Libya-- the White House released a report attempting to justify why congressional approval was not needed in order to carry it out. In the following article I will provide a summary of the 32 page PDF report and rebuttals to the White House's key arguments.

Facing a new election with little to run on and unable to inspire many independent bloggers to voluntarily defend the President's record of war mongering and record deficit, Obama's campaign team has created a position within its communications shop designed to provide "rapid response" to unfavorable stories on the net for "more aggressive engagement in the online world".
