THE SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER is OUT of CONTROL

VaRightLogoSmall11http://www.varight.com/news/the-southern-poverty-law-center-is-out-of-control/

But something went wrong. Today the SPLC is no longer a poverty law center. They are trying to smear and silence dissidents who dare to stand for the Constitution, question the hero worship of Lincoln, and who support national sovereignty against the UN. They have turned into something not unlike the Klan they sought so brilliantly to stop except without overt violence. Tom DeWeese is doing a great job fighitng Agenda 21 and ICLEI. He does not deserve this kind of treatment:

Click here to demand a congressional investigation of the SPLC

_____________________________________________________________________

I need your help by signing the “Citizen’s Demand for Congressional Investigation of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).”

Let me explain.

The American Policy Center (APC) and I have been openly attacked by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

To date, there have been FOUR separate “special reports” released by SPLC against me personally – painting me as a hate-driven domestic terrorist!

Of course, SPLC has a long history of attacking organizations and individuals who defend the Constitution and oppose big government programs.

They regularly accuse us of racism and hate because we want to stop the massive growth of government and the wasteful spending programs that are bankrupting our country.

I get used to such attacks. It’s what they do to try to discredit us.

But this time the attack is different. It truly frightens me because the outcome of this new SPLC attack against APC and me could result in government investigations, the banning of my ability to travel, or even the destruction of APC.

Here’s why I’m concerned.

The Southern Poverty Law Center issued a new report titled “Agenda 21, The UN, Sustainability and Right-Wing Conspiracy Theory.” That report targeted me personally as a leader in the “anti-government Patriot movement.” And the SPLC report said I am part of a network of radicals peddling hysterical conspiracy theories against our Government.

Worse than just the SPLC report – is the fact that it was used as the bases of even more attacks from two national magazines – Fortune Magazine and Newsweek Magazine.

Newsweek’s attack was a cover story called “The Plots To Destroy America.” The article quoted SPLC’s Mark Potok, saying, “These kinds of theories…(are) completely distorting any rational discussion we can have in this country.” More

“The truth always turns out to be simpler than you thought” – physicist Richard Feynman

Bearing that in mind, our basic task as 9/11 truth investigators is, simply put, to determine and to impress upon the 59203_518492681544067_1036204037_npublic what the evidence shows. If said evidence unambiguously indicates who is responsible (as most of us tend to believe), then that’s automatically part of the burden of our message. If it only shows, as some insist, that the myth-producing official story is untrue and nothing more, then that is.

We can’t reliably provide all the details of how and why, because we don’t have all the evidence. And that’s where theories, involving conspiracies or otherwise, come in – possibly right, but at the risk of making us an uncertain trumpet when we lack proof fully substantiating our claims. But yet, all that is needed is what the evidence clearly indicates. Emphasizing what we cannot prove divides and obscures that which we can. More

Veterans Administration, Suicide,Psychiatric Drugs and Conflicts of Interest

Editor’s note:  With so many of our veterans, many of them decorated war heroes, now imprisoned under the predatory guardianship system and in dire need of rescue, this article is of particular interest.  The forced drugging and legalized theft of veteran benefits, savings and estates is in full swing.  Where is the VA when these men and women need them most?  Apparently…….at the pharmacy.  Marti

Veterans Administration Says Psychiatric Drugs Do Not Lead to Suicide, Yet Studies VA Cites Were Authored by Psychiatrists with Heavy Drug Company Ties—Watchdog Calls on Congress to Investigate Conflicts of Interest in VA Data Outcomes

The VA has recently stated that there’s no link between military suicides and sudden deaths due to psychiatric drug use, despite the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) highest warning “black box” attached to antidepressants for increased suicidal thinking and behavior and numerous warnings on psychiatric drugs and sudden death. CCHR, the mental health watchdog, says that the contrary data should merit a Congressional investigation based on the fact that the studies the VA is relying on, were conducted by psychiatrists with heavy conflicts of interest—which may explain their findings. These psychiatrists combined have over 70 financial ties to pharmaceutical companies including Pfizer, Eli Lilly, Abbott Labs, Forest Labs, GlaxoSmithKline and Bristol-Myers Squibb.

· The use of psychiatric drugs in the VA and military is increasing despite the clear cut evidence by the FDA and international drug regulatory agencies that psychiatric drugs cause suicidal thinking and behavior. By 2013, the VA and Department of Defense published a clinical-practice guide reporting that 18-22 die daily. Add to that the nearly 400 questionable soldier deaths, probable cardiac arrest from antipsychotics and cocktails of psychiatric drugs.

Tough questions need to be asked about psychiatrists in the VA and the pharmaceutical conflicts of interest in reports the VA is using for federal regulations. Our military personnel deserve no less.

CCHR has experts to speak on this subject, including a retired US Military Colonel and psychologist, a Former US Air Force Captain and nurse, and an award winning investigative reporter who can go on air and discuss this issue.

He stated the terrorists were “shifting the blame of 911 FROM THE GUILTY”

Many wars have been started by false flag attacks, RVN, Korea , WWI, Spanish American War, however, the single most recorded event in human history of the Regime bombing and setting on fire one of their own buildings is absent,  except for the Reichstag burned by Adolf Hitler and Hermann Goering, which was blamed on Communists.

THE BUILDING WAS EMPTY AND NO PEOPLE OF THE GERMAN PUBLIC WERE DELIBERATELY MURDERED, ONLY THE DEMOLITION OF THE BUILDING.

The planning was done within weeks to days of the actual event of Goering traveling through underground tunnel and setting the fire.

ONLY on 911 was the planning for the nuclear destruction of WTC  done years in advance, with 3,000 dead murdered US Citizens and blamed on 19 hijackers on the same day with no records of their being on the passenger lists.

What Constitutes Animal Cruelty?  Acts of violence or neglect made against animals are considered animal cruelty. Examples include overt abuse, dog fighting, and being neglected or denied the basic necessities of care, such as food, water, shelter, sanitation, grooming and veterinary care.

Neglect is the failure to provide an animal with the most basic of requirements of food, water, shelter and veterinary care.Neglect is often the result of simple ignorance on the animal owner’s part and is usually handled by requiring the owner to correct the situation. If the problem is not corrected, the animal may be removed from the neglectful person by law enforcement authorities. In some cases, the owner will simply turn the animal over to authorities because they no longer want the responsibility.

Intentional Cruelty  is often more shocking and usually an indicator of a serious human behavior problem. Intentional cruelty is when an individual purposely inflicts physical harm or injury on an animal.

  • The NJSPCA has trained investigators with the authority to arrest and prosecute those individuals who have deliberately maimed, tortured or even killed animals.
  • Someone who is violent towards animals may be violent towards family members or other people.
  • Enforcement of Animal Cruelty laws is the primary responsibility of the NJSPCA and it’s investigators. We handle complaints daily in all 21 counties throughout the State.

Many people who witness, or hear about cruelty, are not aware that legal action can be taken to help stop the problem. Companion animals are covered by the State of New Jersey’s animal cruelty laws. Generally, animal cruelty can be divided into two categories: Neglect and Intentional Cruelty:

Pre-Funding Continues to Burden Postal Service Finances

Leave a comment

strip bannernew-logo25Anonymous

___________________________________________________________________

The Postal Service recently reported their 2nd Quarter earnings for Fiscal Year 2014, and it shows that they once again would have made a profit if not for the pre-funding of future retiree health benefits.  The Postal Services accounting books show a loss of 1.9 billion for the 2nd quarter.  However, if you exclude the mandated pre-funding payment, the USPS actually would be showing a year-to-date profit of more than one billion dollars.

The pre-funding payment, a payment required by the 2006 Postal Accountability Act (Public law 109-435), requires the Postal Service to pre-fund its future retiree health benefits, a 75 year obligation, in only ten years.  The Postal Service is the only government agency or corporation that is required by law to pre-fund.  While it is true the Department of Defense (DOD) also pre-funds future retiree health benefits, the DOD recieves Congressional-appropriated monies to pre-fund.  The Postal Service does not receive a single dollar to pre-fund.  The Postal Service operates on rate payer money, money it receives from selling of stamps and services, not taxpayer money.

The Pre-funding payments, which range from $5.5 to $5.8 billion a year through 2016, represent over 80% of the Postal Services losses since 2007.  In fact, the pre-funding requirements  represented 100% of the losses incurred by the Postal Service in the last fiscal year.  If  not for the pre-funding payment, the Postal Service would have posted a $623 million profit delivering the mail.

The House and the Senate bills currently in Congress continue to require the Postal Service to pre-fund.  Chairman Darrel Issa (R CA) has released a new postal discussion draft  (as of press time the bill has not been officially introduced) that would require the Postal Service pay half of the required payments in 2015 and 2016.  This would reduce the payments to approximately 2.8 billion and 2.9 billion, respectively.  The remaining obligation would be paid under an amortized schedule.

Genocide in Gaza: And we are paying for this?

Commentary

____________________________________________________________________________

I fully anticipate that with the publication of this commentary by myself, that the “christians” will attack me with the most vicious, profane, filthy, insulting and disgusting remarks imaginable.  All in the name of God, of course.  I refuse to be intimidated by those who demonstrate that they are apparently mentally compromised after years of religious brainwashing.  This commentary is about man’s inhumanity to man, based on religious zealotry, government corruption, and the willingness of so many gullible people to cheer the genocide of Palestine…all in the name of some “god” and a book of magical, mystical thinking.  Just remember, what you are encouraging in Palestine will eventually be visited upon you by the same people you are supporting now.”

________________________________________________________________________

The video below shows the aftermath of Israel’s attacks on Gaza.  While hysterically screaming that the Palestinians represent some kind of threat to the Zionist’s in Israel, the US government continues to fund and to arm the Israeli’s in their genocide of Palestine.  Hamas is supposedly a “terrorist” organization, but the Mossad is for some reason not a terrorist organization?  Our Senate and House voted unanimously to support the murder, and destruction in Palestine, claiming Israel is our ally and friend. Really?  We need to pick better friends.

After years of operating what is referred to as the worlds largest open-air prison, Israel has decided its time to finish the job.  The destruction, the death, the intent to obliterate the people whose land Israel occupies is readily apparent. And our government, complete with agents, operatives, cabinet members, and other high level officials who claim dual citizenship make sure this killing machine called “Israel” gets all the funding and weaponry they need to get the job done.

You cannot serve two masters!  So who is really the master here?  Who are these dual citizenship operatives really serving?  You?  Me?  Or are they just servicing Israel at our expense?

So where are those pious individuals who claim to be Christians?  Those who claim to be blessed with God’s love, mercy and grace?   Those who claim they are doing God’s work, following God’s words?  Where are you in this wholesale slaughter of the remnants of Palestine?  Their blood is on your religiously fanatic hands as you sit in these churches cheering the deaths and carnage of a people who are at the mercy of serial killers.

How many lives will be lost in the name of religion, or ethnic cleansing and that great book of myths, magic and the preposterous that so many cling to?

The Holocaust of WW2 was a horror.  Why is the holocaust of the Palestinians acceptable?  And why would an ethnic religious order, now called Israel, perpetrating what they claim was done to them was so terrible we should never forget it……unless of course THEY do it.  Then its God’s work.  Actually, it is the work of genocidal monsters that have their grip on our government and many of the religious fanatics here in the US. including many who have their hands in our government to make sure Israel has all it needs to complete its dirty, deadly objective.

I still maintain that religion is a blight on humanity.  This video is only about 3.5 minutes. This is what your religious zealotry, your taxes, your government has condoned and paid for.  Your “god” would be so proud.  If there is a God out there, may He have mercy on your black souls for what you have supported.  Personally, I believe God left us long ago realizing what a terrible mistake He had made when he created us.

“Our hard-earned wages are tax-torted by the genocidal rulers of Israel and their ensconced US/Israeli money masters usurping the power and wealth of the helpless American citizenry.”

The World Summit & The Climate Changers

The sky is falling while the world is a-buzz with the effects of warming trends and climate change. A little hot air here, and a little CO2 there will bring about the best loan sharks along with the world banking elite who will gladly “lend” their billions and services “at interest” to any nation reeling from the greenhouse effect. But, how many “let it burn” forests do the climate changers need each year to accomplish their warming and trendy goals?

Now then, the world’s political leaders will gather in New York on the 23rd of September for a special summit. U.N. Climate Secretary Ed Davey was quoted as saying the following;

“I think there’s a lot of support for having something that is legally binding, it’s just the extent of what is covered by that, is where the negotiations will be.”

Legally binding? Now, doesn’t that kind of mean the world’s taxpayers will get hit when governments sustainable targets are NOT MET? I’m sure it does. Has anyone heard of the backdoor gas tax? It’s been
talked about.

Ok, so factories and automobiles have been targeted as those mighty greenhouse agents causing higher temperatures. And then there is the three year drought in California that is affecting the rain and snow. But does this theory truly prove that climate change will be here for a long, long time?

Interestingly enough, environmental science is suspiciously lacking in the auto/factory category, because when the dots are all connected we find that one of the largest contributors to CO2 (carbon dioxide) levels in the atmosphere happens to be wildfire smoke!

Hello! Why is this always missing in most of the “climate” studies? More

Besides, we need to hold onto that money to buy a replacement ship! Tell ya what, we’ll name the new one in honor of your sacrifice. How does The USS F.U.KuShima sound”??

_____________________________________________________________

21150explosionIn March of 2011 the sailors on the USS Ronald Reagan spent 3 weeks giving humanitarian assistance to the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. After the tsunami, the Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in the Fukushima prefecture on the east coast of Japan suffered grave damage. The emergency back-up systems were destroyed and up to three nuclear explosions followed. The Navy personnal were sent in to assist with rescue logistics, but unbeknownst to them, they had already passed through lethal level radiation plumes three different times, one of them for five hours!! The owner of the nuclear plant, TEPCO, told them the area around the plant was safe. What I wonder is, if the ship was nuclear powered, wasn’t there radiation alarms going off like crazy?? It was reported that the potable water on the ship was also full of radio nuclides which they consumed and bathed in. I saw a video of them scrubbing down a room in the ship and clowning around, without wearing a stitch of protective gear. I was shocked! Some of the men and women suffered the typical immediate symptoms of radiation poisoning such as vomiting, diarrhea, and hair loss.

Now, three and a half years later, many of the USS Reagan’s men and women are suffering the longer term consequences including one death, rare cancers, leukemia, blindness, muscle wasting, birth defects in their children, and a long list of many others. Per usual, our government has denied that the symptoms are related to radiation or to the exposure they had in Japan while giving emergency relief. This is so predictive of them, that it induces yawns. They have even come out with their so-called studies (who did those?) saying the radiation readings on the ship were barely perceptible and the potable water was at low risk level. Someone who mans the gauges on the ship did reveal that they were getting a spike in the levels early on, soon after the tsunami. (I’m sure that fellow has been moved to another post by now) How sickening and disgusting can they be? More

” Combining health care with government invariably results in the individual’s interests versus the state’s interests scenario playing out. Guess who has historically won this battle? Once the “state” is paying for healthcare, the “state” determines what health care will be paid for-even what qualifies as meeting the definition of health care. After all, “public” resources are distributed by popular vote and that’s not good news for the sick minority. That the federal government is mandating the collection of virtually everyone’s health information and data should be of great concern to anyone who has followed any history of what government’s typically do with information. They desire this information simply because they intend to use it. To ration.”
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
A friend recently opined to me about his increasing frustration with those who are unable to distinguish between politics and religion, particularly those for whom politics is their religion. This describes statists of all stripes, I think. Folks either want to use the power of the state to abscond with the property of others in order to better complete “the Lord’s work,” or they justify the state’s trampling of individual rights in the name of “the greater good.” The fascist, Joseph Goebbels had the following to say:

“My party is my church and I believe I serve the Lord best if I do his will, and liberate my oppressed people from the fetters of slavery. That is my gospel.” Or how about this one from Mr. Goebbels: “I am only the instrument that God uses to sing his song. I am only the vessel that nature smilingly fills with new wine.”

It is no mistake that Germany’s national anthem is entitled “Deutschland uber Alles.” The supremacy of the state and the individual’s role in feeding this parasitic institution are apologetically clear in the writings of men like Goebbels, while more subtle, but no less fascistic musings and thoughts surround us today.

Here is a quote from Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
“Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.” Actually, that isn’t very subtle at all, is it?

Join us this evening as Tracey Miller returns to the show to discuss the realities of retaliation against families and victims for speaking out and exposing the abuse and fraud in guardianship.

Families across the country have been targeted through the courts for exposing the rampant abuse of “wards” by those who use the system to profit.  Using character assassination, unfounded charges of neglect, abuse and exploitation, those who fight for the rights of the ward are systematically  attacked by the predators.  No evidence needed; none ever produced.  In fact, most “probate” courts never even require any evidence to be produced by those making the charges. Supposedly, the predators word is enough to enter the charges as fact in the courts.

Tracey and I will be talking about the very real threat of physical retaliation as families fight back against a growing and highly protected system of human trafficking for profit that operates with the cooperation and facilitation of the probate and family courts.

Speaking out?  It could get you hurt!

THE NEW WORLD FOOD ORDER

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Create seeds which are genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) and patent them. Then convince farmers about their “safety” but also include the “greater harvest and more profit“ angle, even if some of it is untrue. But here is the rest of the story.

136078972_40b7e8eb82_m1There is an increasing demand for food worldwide, but presently there is a massive agenda by UC Davis, the EU and the UK to partner with biotech corporations in order to monopolize the food supply through unsafe patented seeds while replacing older hybrid and heirloom seeds that have been around for decades. And what happens if
corporations control the food supply with certain seeds that will only produce one plant and the seed from that plant will never produce another seed? The commercial or hobby farmer will either have to repurchase more seeds from those same suppliers again or they could purchase the older reproducing seeds as long as they are available.

But what if the good seeds which are non-GMO’s are banned by governments? Well, it is on the drawing board.

Big Agri, paired with the world ruling governments, are likened to oligarchies such as the European Union, and are already trying to make it illegal to grow, reproduce, or trade any vegetable seed or trees that has not been tested and approved by the government, more specifically the “EU Plant Variety Agency.” Yes, this is an outrageous agenda and the new law, if passed, basically puts the government in charge of all plants and seeds in Europe, and prevents home gardeners from growing their own plants from non-regulated seeds.” And if growers did break the rules, they will be considered criminals.

“The forest service spends all that time and money to eradicate trout from 7 lakes to save a frog while there are, to this day, zero frogs in those lakes. Now, that’s real progress. Ching, ching, those are your tax dollars still at work.”

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

fish 1While under the radar, in 2008, a huge trout eradication program began in Eldorado National Forest to save a frog. With the exception of a few people who read a newspaper that actually responded to the plan, there were no public hearings back then for the yellow legged frog. The public comment process was practically null in 2008 and the forest service didn’t make a lot of noise either, less the public be outraged at such an undertaking.
In my recent conversation with Eldorado National Forest fish biologist, Sarah Muskoph, she shared with me that tadpole eating Brook trout in 7 lakes were the reason for an eradication program which had already been completed in 2011 and 2012. Those high mountain lakes affected are located in Desolation Wilderness above the Echo Lake Resort which are Ralston, Tamarack, Cagwin, Margery, Lucille, Le Conte, and Jabu lakes.

To date there is still insufficient evidence that connects frog decline to the eating of tadpoles by trout yet the forest service clings to this assumption. In my discussion with Sarah I asked her if any yellow legged frogs had yet been found in or around those lakes since the eradication and she said, with the exception of a few frogs that had been found in a pond, there were none.  This is consistent with these findings here; More
