Excerpted from the Article:

“How logical, then, is the human mechanism of denial? Yet we activists will be confronted by it, all the time.

Then there’s the good old mental game of projection. Politicians are so admirably talented at seeing themselves in others: Labeling “the other side” (such as 9-11 truth activists) as “terrorists” is only one example. What a brilliant self-description uttered by the politicians, eh? They discuss the horrors of the Holy Jihadists while themselves waging shock and awe against a nation which never attacked us. They think they are seeing the world at large for what it is, but in truth are seeing a stunningly accurate reflection of their own selves. And they are fully convinced of the truth of what they see in the world, and of every word they utter. Doubt it? Just watch them and decide for yourself what you think.

And what about blowing off the searing truths? The more the truth hurts, the more we humans need to rationalize it somehow, to prevent it from penetrating our conscious awareness. Example: An activist discussing 9-11 pre-planning or pending enforcement of martial law is labeled “paranoid” and a “conspiracy theorist”. Some people may even snicker. Anything a person can do to spare themselves the anguish of reality’s searing pains, they will do. Of course, it’s not conscious. Even the accuser is not aware of his/her own pain, such as when acknowledging that Bush and Cheney are murderers on the loose, capable of heinous things like pre-planning 9-11. Thus, “The Kook” becomes the excuse for the denier to rigorously protect himself/herself from the dawning of truth. The facts will no longer bear any relevance to the denier: Instead, “The Kook” will dominate their mental frame of reference. Period.”

Police Provoke Violence at SPP Protest in Canada (video included)

Leave a comment

Where were the protests by Americans over the SPP meeting in New Orleans in April, 2008?  While Canadians fight back……….we sit back.  While Canadians protest, we just conform.  There is a lesson to be learned from watching this video.    Marti

For those unfamiliar with the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) there is good information at http://www.canadians.org/ :

 

The protest at Montebello, Quebec was the SPP Meeting of August 2007.  Following the Montebello meeting,

On April 21, 2008, Prime Minister Stephen Harper traveled to New Orleans to attend the fourth annual North American Leaders’ Summit to discuss progress to the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) with his American and Mexican counterparts. It has been four years since this process began, and no one beyond an elite group of corporate CEOs has been asked how they feel about the SPP—until now.

Not Counting Canadians: The Security and Prosperity Partnership and public opinion

From April 7–10, 2008, the Council of Canadians commissioned Environics Research Group to conduct a survey of Canadians to find out how they feel about the major SPP policy directions and initiatives, including North American regulatory convergence, energy integration with the United States, bulk water exports, and the adoption of U.S.-style security measures in Canada. We also asked whether such a wide-reaching trilateral agreement should be brought to Parliament for a debate and vote.

Download the full report, Not Counting Canadians : The Security and Prosperity Partnership and public opinion (PDF 1.78 MB), or follow the links below:

87% of Canadians agree that Canada should maintain the ability to set its own independent environmental, health and safety standards, even if this might reduce cross-border trade opportunities with the United States. And yet the Harper government is committed to an SPP policy of regulatory harmonization in the areas of consumer product safety, food and drugs, and the environment.

89% of Canadians agree that Canada should establish an energy policy that provides reliable supplies of oil, gas and electricity at stable prices and protects the environment, even if this means placing restrictions on exports and foreign ownership of Canadian supplies. And yet the Harper government is committed to a “market-based” policy of energy integration with the U.S. through the SPP’s North American Energy Working Group.

88% of Canadians agree that Canada should adopt a comprehensive national water policy that recognizes clean drinking water as a basic human right and also bans the bulk export of fresh water. And yet bulk water exports to the U.S. are on the table in SPP discussions.

48% of Canadians do not feel that Canada should harmonize its security policies with the United States, even if this affects our trading relationship. It was the only question on which Canadians were divided. And yet the 2008 Federal budget committed millions of extra dollars to SPP security initiatives anyway.

86% of Canadians agree that the Security and Prosperity Partnership agreement should be debated and submitted to a vote in Parliament. Yet four years later, the debate is nowhere to be seen.

Canadian preferences for policies that run counter to the key SPP priorities listed above show conclusively that Prime Minister Harper does not have a democratic mandate for pursuing this agenda in secretive trilateral talks like the upcoming North American leaders summit in New Orleans. The government must cease all further SPP talks and debate the agreement fully and openly before submitting it to Parliament for a vote.

MERIDA ACT…..Mexico Demands the US Pay For It’s Drug Wars

1 Comment

Contact all your US elected officials that you can and ask them to

DEMAND CONDITIONS on the TAXPAYER funds that may or may not go to Mexico to fight the War on Drugs   Please forward this email as written to all…

 

How DARE MEXICO – insist that – we the USA – must assist them in ending the War on Drugs – in their Country – because they have not and cannot take care of the problem and then insult us even more with demanding – no conditions.

 

It is very simple people – Tell Congress to SECURE THE BORDER then we will be helping stop the War on Drugs in Mexico – by stopping the demand here in the US – without giving away our hard earned money to a country that is doing absolutely nothing for the US. Not to mention greatly decreasing the influx of illegal aliens and

TERRORISTS!

 

Lets use Taxpayer dollars:

  • on Americans who need help
  • on Legal Residents to demand and support assimilation
  • on SECURING THE BORDER

 

GIVE MEXICO NO MONEY

GIVE MEXICO NO MONEY                STOP THE MERIDA ACT

GIVE MEXICO NO MONEY

The GOP Eats Its Young….AGAIN

2 Comments

I just received a copy of “The Minnesota Concervative Delegate Team” sent to all those “true Republicans”.  (All three of them?) 

It’s as if the propaganda emails highlighting Obama’s middle name (Hussein) weren’t stupid enough; as if the emails citing tax tables in a Clinton vs. Bush administration ploy…..that carefully omitted the alternative tax Bush loves so much that will eat up 55% of household incomes by 2010, but only for working class Americans. (By the way…..Clinton has been gone for 7 years now..get over it)

As if the conservative vs. liberal letters that supposedly compare the “values” and “morality” of true conservatives versus those godless liberals, didn’t ignore the hypocrisy of the right, didn’t leave one with the sense that someone had either not listened to the news or suffered from severe selective hearing, I just don’t think there is any hope for the Republican party at all.

I believe if we are going to fear someone because of what their parents named them, we should be in total fear of anyone named George…or Dick just for starters.  Heck! I think we should ban everyone with the last name of Bush, from the country. 

This latest letter from the Minnesota Conservative Delegate Team is another of those cases of the GOP eating its young or maybe swallowing its own tale.  Apparently ired by the refusal of Ron Paul supporters to go away like good GOP’ers, the MCDT has taken it upon itself to stifle support within the party for a candidate that is getting support from all quarters.  Now, you would think that Ron Paul’s adherence to the Constitution, to principle, to the laws and his opposition to NAFTA, CAFTA and other illegal trade agreements would have made him a star in the Republican party.  Its apparent that the core of the party has become so corrupted they can no longer identify a true conservative, patriotic, and honest candidate even when he is in their own ranks.  Makes me wonder when the self identified “leaders” of the Republican party will come out and admit that they are neo-conservatives (meaning not conservatives at all) and that the corruption is so ingrained, such a political aphrodisiac they are beside themselves wondering why the sheeple in the party refuse to follow their lead.

(quote) “Whatever success Paul supporters have had in Minnesota Conventions has largely been the result of the failure of mainstream conservative Republicans to unite behind a qualified team of party leaders”.  (So anyone who doesn’t do what you tell them to do is not maintstream?)                                                     

And in closing this letter against opposing such an unpopular candidate as McCain:  “The civil war that is ripping the Democratic party apart does not need to occur within our party; we have our nominee.  John McCain” (end quote)

Just for the record, that “civil war” referred to in the Democratic party is called campaigning for office.  Its the battle that should take place if you really do believe in democracy and fair and open elections.  Its apparent that Republicans do not.  We have only to look at the election fraud of the 2000 and 2004. Elections that saw caging, hacked voting machines, corrupt secretaries of states, purged votes, shredded votes, disenfranchized voters, and the interference in a national election by a corrupt, Republican dominated Supreme Court.  Ah! To be a Republican! 

Everytime I receive another of these letters, another of these carefully crafted efforts to tell conservatives who they are going to vote for, rather than finding out whom they wish to vote for, I would laugh except it isn’t really funny.

I want to know who decided that we were so stupid, so gullible that sending out flame emails that contain absolutely stupid information or that requires us to lower our level of intelligence in order to accept what the GOP wants rather than making our own choices…..who are these people?  And why do we pay any attention to them at all? 

The Republican party may suffer a split (I believe it already has) but not because Ron Paul supporters won’t go away.  The split will occur because it is so apparent that the party of manipulation and control, the party that proclaimed its own virtuosity, its own high morals, its own self righteous piety, has been exposed.  And what has been laid bare for all to see is that rather than the party of morality, patriotism and freedom, and all the other adjectives right wingers like to use to discibe themselves while they preen, is nothing more than a private club of self promoting individuals who believe they can and should call the shots. 

What is glaringly apparent is that selecting the best candidate for the preservation of the country is not the issue; simply having a Republican candidate they selected before hand whom they are assured will continue the wars and the destruction of our soveriegn nation is more important than any silly old thing like the constitution and the law. 

Personally, I wish the neo-con faction would just split away and form its own party (it is one anyway) and leave the rest of us alone.  And please!  No more idiotic emails with bogus messages in them.  Forwarding these electronic pieces of crap make us all look as if we have little character and even less integrity.  What scares me is the people who forward them and actually think they are worth anything other than a quick delete.

I will not be voting for McCain…..the worst possible choice, followed closely by both Democrats.  Just for the record I will be voting for Ron Paul even if I have to write his name in on the ballot.  I don’t believe party leaders are any more qualified to determine who I vote for than I am.  Either way…..I decide who gets my vote…….not the GOP.

An Absurd Bureaucracy

Leave a comment

This was forwarded to us today.  If this letter, whether real or not, does not point out the the ridiculousness of what we allow ourselves to endure to stay safe from those “terrorists”……I don’t what does.  

 The Man has a point!!

Actual letter or not, this points up the absurd bureaucracy that has been put up in lieu of significant steps to actually protect us from terrorism.  As a diversionary tactic, it has been monumentally successful.

For diversions, how about ginning up the same-sex “marriage” issue again, just in time for another national election?

Do they really think we are that stupid?  Are we really that stupid?  Will there be an election?  Stay tuned!

An actual letter to the passport office

 

Dear Sir,  
I’m in the process of renewing my passport, and still cannot believe this.  How is it that Radio Shack has my address and telephone number and knows that I bought a t.v. cable from them back in 1997, and yet, the Federal Government is still asking me where I was born and on what date.
 
For Christ sakes, do you guys do this by hand? My birth date you have on my social security card, and it is on all the income tax forms I’ve filed for the past 30 years. It is on my health insurance card, my driver’s license, on the last eight @#$&# passports I’ve had, on all those stupid customs declaration forms I’ve had to fill out before being allowed off the planes over the last 30 years, and all those insufferable census forms that are done at election times.

Would somebody please take note, once and for all, that my mother’s name is Maryanne, my father’s name is Robert and I’d be absolutely astounded if that ever changed between now and when I die!!! !!!
!@#*!

I apologize, I’m really pissed off this morning. Between you and me, I’ve had enough of this bs.! You send the application to my house, then you ask me for my #$&@ing address. What is going on? You have a gang of Neanderthal #@@holes working there??? Look at my damn picture. Do I look like Bin Laden? I don’t want to dig up Yasser Arafat, for *#@* sakes. I just want to go and park my ass on a sandy beach.  

And would someone please tell me, why would you give a @#*@ whether I plan on visiting a farm in the next 15 days? If I ever got the urge to do something weird to a chicken or a goat, believe you me, I’d sure as hell not want to tell anyone!  
 
Well, I have to go now, ’cause I have to go to the other end of the city and get another @#*#ing copy of my birth certificate, to the tune of $60. Would it be so complicated to have all the services in the same spot to assist in the issuance of a new passport the same day??  Nooooo, that’d be too damn easy and maybe makes sense. You’d rather have us running all over the @#!@#’ place like chickens with our heads cut off, then find some @##hole to confirm that it’s really me on the @#!!#!* picture – you know, the one where we’re not allowed to smile?! (@#!%@’ morons)

Hey, you know why we can’t smile? We’re totally pissed off!  Signed – An Irate @#!*#!@ Citizen.

P.S. Remember what I said above about the picture and getting someone to confirm that it’s me? Well, my family has been in this country since 1776. I have served in the military for something over 30 years and have had security clearances up the yingyang. However, I have to get someone ‘important’ to verify who I am — you know, someone like my doctor WHO WAS BORN AND RAISED IN COMMUNIST @#!#@&@#@ CHINA !

 Read this important and revealing article from APFN about the bankruptcy of the US……..decades ago.  Click on the link to read the full document. 

 

The Bankruptcy of The United States
http://www.apfn.net/DOC-100_bankruptcy.htm

The receivers of the United States Bankruptcy are the International
Bankers, via the United Nations, the World Bank and the International
Monetary Fund. All United States Offices, Officials, and Departments are now
operating within a de facto status in name only under Emergency War Powers.
With the Constitutional Republican form of Government now dissolved, the
receivers of the Bankruptcy have adopted a new form of government for the
United States. This new form of government is known as a Democracy, being an
established Socialist/Communist order under a new governor for America. This
act was instituted and established by transferring and/or placing the Office
of the Secretary of Treasury to that of the Governor of the International
Monetary Fund. Public Law 94-564, page 8, Section H.R. 13955 reads in part:
“The U.S. Secretary of Treasury receives no compensation for representing
the United States.”
