“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder[er] is less to fear.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

The Secret Agenda of Mind Control
A declassified CIA document dated 7 Jan 1953 describes the experimental creation of multiple personality in two 19-year old girls.

"These subjects have clearly demonstrated that they can pass from a fully awake state to a deep H [hypnotic] controlled state by telephone, by receiving written matter, or by the use of code, signal, or words, and that control of those hypnotized can be passed from one individual to another without great difficulty. It has also been shown by experimentation with these girls that they can act as unwilling couriers for information purposes.”

The Brain Scan That Can Read Peoples' Intentions
A team of world-leading neuroscientists has developed a powerful technique that allows them to look deep inside a person's brain and read their intentions before they act. The research breaks controversial new ground in scientists' ability to probe people's minds and eavesdrop on their thoughts, and raises serious ethical issues over how brain-reading technology may be used in the future.

Who Are the Real Terrorists in Iraq?
An article in the Sunday Telegraph this weekend pointed towards evidence that an secretive and elite unit of the British army is actively engaged in recruiting and training Iraqi insurgents and terrorists as double agents. This confirms what many have speculated for a long time, that Britain and the US are deeply involved in bombings and attacks inside Iraq which are subsequently attributed either to Sunni insurgents or shadowy terrorist cells such as "Al Qaeda in Iraq".

I well remember my father telling me, "A bird in a cage is safe, but it is not free." That proverb pretty much summarizes H.R. 1. When fully implemented, the new law will create a federal police leviathan that will place the American people into a giant bird cage.

SCOTUS to Gilmore: Petition for Cert Denied
John Gilmore is disappointed that the Supreme Court refused to act on the danger posed by the unconstitutional position of the TSA, and its refusal to release the text of the law that it uses to require travelers to show identification.

Big Brother - What It Really Means in Britain Today
Moves to share people's personal details across Whitehall have provoked a civil liberties uproar and accusations that the Government has taken another step towards "a Big Brother state".

Border Agents Going to Jail for Securing the Border
Question: Thousands of illegal aliens -- many of whom are drug smugglers, gangsters and other criminals -- cross our borders every single day. But what happens to our brave border patrol agents who aggressively pursue and try to capture these criminals? Answer: 11-12 years in prison!


HELSINGIN SANOMAT, the largest newspaper in Scandinavia, wrote in the September 9, 1999 issue that Scientific
American magazine estimates that after the Millenium perhaps ALL people will be implanted with a "DNA microchip".
How many people realize what it actually means? Total loss of privacy and total outside control of the person's physical
body functions, mental, emotional and thought processes, including the implanted person's subconscious and dreams!

Abu Ghraib - The Bottom Line
Video collage about the torture of Iraqi civilians at Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad - the audio track is an edited version of Negativland's "The Bottom Line," from their 1993 album "Free."

Justice Department Database Stirs Privacy Fears
The Justice Department is building a massive database that allows state and local police officers around the country to search millions of case files from the FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration and other federal law enforcement agencies, according to Justice officials.

Porque El Amero, Amigos
The jungle drummers are already beating out the message: The "Amero" - the new currency for the North American Union - is coming...and Americans should accept it with alacrity. The party line is that the North American Union, as a new supra-national political entity, should have a currency of its own. Such is the propaganda. What is the reality?

66% Think US Spies on Its Citizens
Two-thirds of Americans believe that the FBI and other federal agencies are intruding on privacy rights as part of terrorism investigations, but they remain divided over whether such tactics are justified, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll released yesterday.

US Has Most Prisoners in the World Due to Tough Laws
Tough sentencing laws, record numbers of drug offenders and high crime rates have contributed to the United States having the largest prison population and the highest rate of incarceration in the world, according to criminal justice experts. (Thank you, NRA. Where would freedom be without you?)

FBI taps cell phone mic as eavesdropping tool
The FBI appears to have begun using a novel form of electronic surveillance in criminal investigations: remotely activating a mobile phone's microphone and using it to eavesdrop on nearby conversations.

Phoenix Airport to Test X-Ray Screening
Sky Harbor International Airport here will test a new federal screening system that takes X-rays of passenger's bodies to detect concealed explosives and other weapons.

Beheading Nations: The Islamization of Europe’s Cities
We have seen videos on TV of Muslim Jihadis beheading infidel hostages. Less attention has been paid to the fact that Muslims are beheading entire nation states. Although this is happening in slow motion, it is no less dramatic. Historically, the major cities have constituted a country’s “head,” the seat of most of its political institutions and the largest concentration of its cultural brainpower. What happens when this “head” is cut off from the rest of the body?

The New World Order's Letter To Every Citizen Of The World Warning Resistance Is Futile
According to letter addressed to everybody in America, it's useless to resist a one world takeover, as the program is in its final stages.

Firebell In the Night! (MS Word .Doc format)
The first, most fundamental, and important rule for understanding and solving a problem is defining the problem correctly. In America and the world today there is no "war of terrorism." Terrorism is merely a tactic. To say we are in a war against "terrorism" is like saying we are in a war against calvary-charges, Gatling-guns, or submarines. Who are in the submarines? Why are they attacking us? What can we do to stop them?

Post-election 2006: “Changes in course” and other post-election delusions
Following what appeared to be an election landslide that put the Democrats in control of both houses of the US Congress, America’s Democratic Party faithful are euphoric, and insanely optimistic about a Democratic “house cleaning” that will not only bring down the “now-repudiated” Bush administration, but stop the war in Iraq, “restore oversight and ethics," and “end corruption." Put down the champagne, stop the hysterical laughter, and wake up: none of it will happen.

Air Force Plan: Hack Your Nervous System
The brain has always been a battlefield. New weapons might be able to hack directly into your nervous system.

The Fleecing of an American, George Horvat
Generally, Americans acknowledge the steady flow of cash into the big pockets of big business, particularly under the current administration. Americans were fleeced, just by seven Bush administration agencies, for at least $1.6 billion between 2003 through mid-2005. This amount was paid, through hundreds of contracts, to advertising agencies, PR firms, and individuals. Pre-packaged spin disguised as news were used to propagandize Americans into believing that "war is peace" in Bush's ongoing profit-producing, conflict against "evil doers" This is according to a Government Accountability Office report released February 13, 2006.

What the Libertarian Party should start doing now

Big Brother Britain 2006
Britain has sleepwalked into becoming a surveillance society that increasingly intrudes into our private lives and impacts on everyday activities, the head of the information watchdog warns.

An Open Letter to the Red Cross
I am writing in regards the $385 million contract for vast detention camps announced by Halliburton in a press release this past January. Major media outlets have had little to say about this ominous development, but given the American government’s previous use of such camps to forcibly imprison over 110,000 Japanese-Americans (the majority of whom were U.S. citizens) during WWII, the possibility of such camps being used to illegally imprison Muslims, dissidents, citizens deemed “enemy combatants,” and others in the coming months and years cannot be dismissed.

Fire. Rumsfeld. Now.
According to sources, the Army Times is about to run an astonishing editorial, openly calling for Rumsfeld to resign mere days before an election. That's how desperate the military now is. Here it is in full:

Google 'will be able to keep tabs on us all'
The internet will hold so much digital data in five years that it will be possible to find out what an individual was doing at a specific time and place, an expert said yesterday.

New Documents Detail Mexican Military Incursions
Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained records from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) that document 226 incursions by Mexican government personnel into the United States between 1996 and 2005.

The New Anti-Semitism
A recent third type of anti-Jewish odium is something different. It is a strange mixture of violent hatred by radical Islamists and the more or less indifference to it by Westerners. Those who randomly shoot Jews for being Jews - whether at a Jewish center in Seattle or at synagogues in Istanbul - are for the large part Muslim zealots. Most in the West explain away the violence. They chalk it up to anger over the endless tit-for-tat in the Middle East. Yet privately they know that we do not see violent Jews shooting Muslims in the United States or Europe.

Trading Liberty For Safety
The response was predictable. After sending our alert last Thursday regarding the passing of the Military Commissions Act, we received a flood of email. Many were supportive, but others took exception.

Gun Fight at the Congress Corral
My first newsletter of the 89th Congress deals with guns and laws and people. It's about a modern-day battle almost as charged as that famous gunfight in Tombstone's OK Corral. Let's start with two stories -- one fictional, one real.

Unasked, Unanswered
During the next few weeks we will have the opportunity to subject ourselves to broadcast debates between political candidates. These rituals, every bit as exciting and meaningful as the Academy Awards, provide the candidates the opportunity to disagree as to the best methods to limit, control, and regulate (i.e., "govern"), not to mention plunder and cheat, us.

Does Top GOP Xenophobe Cash In on Undocumented Labor?
Republican Congressman James Sensenbrenner's stock holdings include investments in companies that benefit from the work of undocumented immigrants, as well as firms contracted to build new border security measures.

R.I.P. Habeas Corpus
MSNBC's Keith Olbermann comments on the passage of the Military Commissions Act, which essentially eliminates the 800-year tradition of Habeas Corpus.

FBI Wants ISPs to Track Users
FBI Director Robert Mueller on Tuesday called on Internet service providers to record their customers' online activities, a move that anticipates a fierce debate over privacy and law enforcement in Washington next year.

Welcome to the Land of the Free
Activist opposing government policies is charged with crimes against the state, declared mentally unbalanced, and forced to take psychotropic drugs in a military prison hospital.

Senior Military, Intelligence, and Government Officials Question 9/11 Commission Report
Many respected senior members of the U.S. military, intelligence services, and government have expressed significant criticism of the 9/11 Commission Report. Some even allege government complicity in the terrible acts of 9/11. Below are the highly revealing statements on this vital topic of over 50 prominent public servants with links for verification and further investigation

Fencing Us In, Not Keeping 'Them' Out
To say that Congress's vote to erect 700 miles of “secure” fencing along the southern U.S. border is an “empty” gesture is a felonious act of understatement. It is barren of any meaning save cynical political opportunism.

American Fascism on the Rise
The precursors of fascism -- militarization of culture, vigilantism, masculine fear of female power, xenophobia and economic destabilization -- are ascendant in America today.

The Holocaust's Arab Heroes
Virtually alone among peoples of the world, Arabs appear to have won a free pass when it comes to denying or minimizing the Holocaust.

Congress Bows to Bush
[N]ow, the Republicans' Military Commissions Act can not only remove this bedrock of our liberty from prisoners outside the country but can also strip habeas protections from legal immigrants here, as well as from American citizens. This last-minute insertion into the bill was worked out in a closed-door conference at the White House between Republican congressional leaders and presidential advisers, including Dick Cheney and his chief of staff, David Addington.

The Sounds of Silencing
Free speech means hearing things you like and agree with, and it means allowing others to speak whose views you do not like or agree with. This--listening to the other person with respect and forbearance, and with an acceptance of human diversity--is the price we pay for living in a great democracy. And it is a really low price for such a great thing. We all know this, at least in the abstract. Why are so many forgetting it in the particular?

Creeping Dictatorship
I miss the days of smoke-filled rooms when crooked pols chose corrupt presidential candidates who were approximately sane. Today we have a sort of presidential bus-station lottery. We choose as ruler any beer-hall putz who can shake hands and grin his way successfully through New Hampshire. This, plus the deep rot of the American political framework, is allowing the rapid conversion of the United States into something previous Americans would hardly recognize.

Pig Massacre at Willis River
They were sound asleep. Danny and Cindi Henshaw were awakened by a banging on the door at 5 a.m. on Sept. 12. It was the game warden. Danny was arrested for "operating a mammalian hunting enclosure without a permit" and hauled off to be booked.

Fortress America?
It was the nightmare many had been expecting. Five years ago, hard on the heels of 9/11, someone sent anthrax spores through the US mail to journalists and politicians. Five people died, and at least 17 more got sick. The culprit was never caught.This relatively unsophisticated attack confirmed fears, already growing in the US, that with a bit more effort a determined bioterrorist could spread disease and mayhem across the nation.

Combat Arms Survey
The following COMBAT ARMS SURVEY was sent to Geoff Metcalf by a U.S. Marine, with a (non-anonymous) note explaining that the survey was given May 10, 1994, at the Twenty-nine Palms (CA) Marine base, to a number of Marines from different units which had participated in either: Operation "Just Cause," "Desert Storm" or "Restore Hope."

Return of the King
A couple of days ago I was perusing the 1689 English Bill of Right – precursor of our own Bill of Rights – and note that the sum total of the gripes the English parliamentarians had against James II are precisely what we have in the United States today. Here's the complete list of basic rights the English wanted protected against their king in their Bill of Right, a predecessor of our own Bill of Rights. You might notice some similar language between the two.

American Stew
Somebody should run and check the National Archives because the Constitution may have sprouted legs and walked right of the District of Columbia sometime after 53 Republicans and 12 Democrats voted last Thursday to end an 800-year-old tradition called habeas corpus. No Reichstag decree was required. No soldiers stood in the Senate gallery with rifles pointed to threaten those Senators who might be tempted to oppose rather than endorse dictatorship. The strongest motivation anyone has yet proposed is that the November mid-term elections are coming up.

Thousands Wrongly on Terror List
Thousands of people have been mistakenly linked to names on terror watch lists when they crossed the border, boarded commercial airliners or were stopped for traffic violations, a government report said Friday.

American Prison Camps are on the Way
Kellogg Brown & Root, a Halliburton subsidiary, is constructing a huge facility at an undisclosed location to hold tens of thousands of Bush's "unlawful enemy combatants." Americans are certain to be among them.

Welcome to Fascist America!
We’ve now gotten to the point where Nazi Germany was, say, in 1934. Remember, at that time, if you had told a typical German what his government would do over the next ten years, he would have looked at you as a madman. After all, his land had been civilized for over a thousand years. His was the nation of Albertus Magnus, Gutenberg, Goethe, Schiller, Beethoven, Bach, Kant, Hegel, Schelling, Fichte, Heisenberg, Reimann, Mann, Lessing, Herder, Handel, Dürer, Leibniz, Gauss, Helmholtz – he could have gone on, but you get the point. His nation could not possibly descend into barbarism! If you tried to tell him he was living in a police state, he would have pointed out that his government had used its vast new powers very judiciously, and only against a few trouble-makers. So far.

Empires with Expiration Dates
Empires drive history. But the empires of the past 100 years were short lived, none surviving to see the dawn of the new century. Today, there are no empires, at least not officially. But that could soon change if the United States—or even China—embraces its imperial destiny. How can they avoid the fate of those who came before them?

Last week the tyrants in the House of Representatives passed yet more unconstitutional legislation: an anti-drug and anti-weapon law which would mandate school districts formulate policies for searches - including strip searches, but would immunize teachers and staff against prosecution. Should the schools refuse to perform under this unconstitutional bill they would be denied unconstitutional federal funding.

Inside the Feds' Secret Wiretapping Rooms
Congress is considering three bills to "reform" massive surveillance programs. But secret facilities around the country are already eavesdropping on Americans.

North American merger topic of secret confab
Raising more suspicions about plans for the future integration of the U.S., Canada and Mexico, a high-level, top-secret meeting of the North American Forum took place this month in Banff – with topics ranging from "A Vision for North America," "Opportunities for Security Cooperation" and "Demographic and Social Dimensions of North American Integration."

Psychiatry and the State
The federal government plans a new role in delivering mental health care. Historically, however, governments have used psychiatric techniques for harm rather than good.

The Pentagon's 12-Step Program to Create a Misfit Military
Iraq is driving down the number of new enlistees, and in desperation recruiters are bringing in a motley mix of underage teens, foreign fighters, neo-Nazis, and ex-cons.

Gore says tax pollution, not payrolls
Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore on Monday suggested taxing carbon dioxide emissions instead of employees' pay in a bid to stem global warming. "Penalizing pollution instead of penalizing employment will work to reduce that pollution," Gore said in a speech at New York University School of Law.

Voting Early and Often
Can I call 'em, or can I call 'em? Nearly four years ago, I predicted charges of electoral fraud before the polls had even opened in the 2002 elections. I was right, and such charges have only grown louder as in recent elections.

Air Force Chief: Test Weapons on Americans
Nonlethal weapons such as high-power microwave devices should be used on American citizens in crowd-control situations before they are used on the battlefield, the Air Force secretary said.

Police rush to shoot, but ask us to withhold judgment
Late last month, Huntington Beach police officers unloaded 18 bullets into 19-year-old Ashley MacDonald in a city park after, they say, she moved toward them with a pocket knife. The shooting has understandably sparked protests and countywide debate over when police officers should be allowed to use deadly force.

Vogue Italia's "State of Emergency"
"State of Emergency" is a disturbing fashion pictorial in Vogue Italia's September 2006 issue, focusing on the world of heightened security we now live in . Artistic and thought-provoking, or distasteful and exploitative? You decide.

In a recent commentary, former New York Mayor Ed Koch -- a Democrat with at least half his brain intact (which makes him the leading intellectual light of his party) -- asked rhetorically, "Why do so many Americans refuse to face the fact that our country is at war with international terrorism?" Because they're liberals?

Arlen Specter's Sellout
Senate Judiciary Committee chair intent on rescuing Bush from felony charges

Big Government Solutions Don't Work/ The Law of Opposites
Politicians throughout history have tried to solve every problem conceivable to man, always failing to recognize that many of the problems we face result from previous so-called political solutions. Government cannot be the answer to every human ill. Continuing to view more government as the solution to problems will only make matters worse.

Fury as Academics Claim 9-11 Was "Inside Job"
Around 75 top professors and leading scientists believe the attacks were puppeteered by war mongers in the White House to justify the invasion and the occupation of oil-rich Arab countries. The claims have caused outrage and anger in the US which marks the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on Monday.

NYC Administration For Children's Services Must Be Stopped

Help Unmask the "Secret Senator"
S. 2590 is a bi-partisan proposal for a new search engine that would allow taxpayers to "google" federal spending, so that taxpayers could see just where our money is being spent. But one or more pork-loving Senators on Capitol Hill doesn't like that idea -- and they're secretly blocking this bill.

Ex-BLM Worker Wins Whistleblower Suit

Pentagon Moves Toward Monitoring Media
The U.S. command in Baghdad is seeking bidders for a two-year, $20 million public relations contract that calls for monitoring the tone of Iraq news stories filed by U.S. and foreign media.

How Hitler Became a Dictator
Whenever U.S. officials wish to demonize someone, they inevitably compare him to Adolf Hitler. The message immediately resonates with people because everyone knows that Hitler was a brutal dictator. But how many people know how Hitler actually became a dictator? My bet is, very few. I’d also bet that more than a few people would be surprised at how he pulled it off, especially given that after World War I Germany had become a democratic republic.

Brazil Gives Google Two Weeks to Turn Over User Data
Brazilian authorities have given Google Brazil 15 days to turn over user information from websites that promote criminal activity, threatening the company with 23,000 dollars in daily fines if they do not comply.

An Update on KT Ordnance
" I [must] put up a 10% bond for the assets value ... just for the privilege of attempting to get the items [seized by BATFE] back. They claim in the forfeiture letter that these items where “used or acquired in violation of federal law”, yet I've not been charged with violating any law."

Dallas Official Aims to Ban Baggy Pants
A Dallas City Councilman wants to ban baggy pants in the city. School board trustee Ron Price said he would ask the Dallas City Council to make it illegal to wear baggy pants by either drawing up a new ordinance, or by adding the ban to an existing ordinance related to public lewdness.

The Bacteria of Stupidity
Quite surprisingly, what may turn out to be the world's most fitting epigram in our time was uttered by none other than the official spokesman of the Hamas-controlled Palestinian Authority, Ghazi Hamad. According to the Jerusalem Post yesterday, Mr. Hamad told his fellow Palestinians to dismiss Israel's responsibility for the growing state of anarchy and lawlessness in the Gaza Strip. He said it was time for the Palestinians to embark on a soul-searching process to see where they erred.

Letter from JPFO Supporter
"I came to this great country 12 years ago, as a political refugee, and as soon as I could I applied for U.S. citizenship. It has always marveled me how impervious is humanity to historical experience and how vulnerable to agitation and frenzy. A little more than half a century ago, the world experienced large-scale totalitarian dictatorship. Two great monsters almost destroyed civilization. The world has not cured yet from that terrible madness: The monsters are just wounded, not dead. And it all started when these monsters tricked people into surrendering their rights. Dictators have always been afraid of people's rights. It's not difficult to imagine how armed citizens could endanger the schemes breeding in the brains of a Fascist or a Communist. Up there somewhere, someone wants people to believe that these monsters are different from what could happen to our country, if we let them take away our rights. Thanks for listening. "

Our Civilian-Military Face-Off (pdf)
Some Marines say they can see the day when the Corps will be required to execute Haiti-like missions, or worse, within the borders of the United States. "The next real war we fight is likely to be on American soil," three writers argue in a 1994 essay in the Marine Corps Gazette, capturing in a sentence Marine estrangement from American society.

Privacy Has Become an Anachronism
VeriChip Corp., "one of the most aggressive marketers of radio frequency identification chips," is trying to convince the Pentagon to insert the chips, known as RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chips under the skin of the right arms of U.S. servicemen and servicewomen. The rationale is to enable them to scan an arm and obtain that person’s identity and medical history. The chips would replace the metal dog tags that have been worn by U.S. military personnel since 1906.

Hitlerian Totalitarianism on the Home Front
Opponents of an absolute state often wonder how far the American people will go in allowing Hitlerian totalitarianism into every single aspect of their lives. When will they stop being compliant little beings, and instead, stand up and fight for their right to exist unencumbered by one totalitarian measure after another?

Modest Proposal: Waterboard Congress
Maybe White House-favored interrogation techniques would coax lawmakers to tell the truth about U.S. anti-terror policies.

Crop Cops Take to the Sky
Farmers may seem like trustworthy people, but the U.S. Department of Agriculture is taking no chances. It's spending tens of millions of dollars to create an enormous computerized map of every farmer's field in America. The program is intended to make sure farmers are doing what's required to earn their government subsidies.

UK: Police Halt "Anti-Social" Hopscotch Game

Congressional Research Service Memo (PDF)
Logic dictates that if you're deciding whether something is "legal" or "illegal", you follow certain standards or guidelines. Not the BATFE. This agency capriciously decides whether a firearm is legal ... with no written standards, and no designated testing procedures. Better hope the agent assigned to you is having a good day!

M3000 Reversal Letter
Think your firearms are legal? Think again: the BATFE likes to change its mind! What's legal today may not be tomorrow -- and you won't know until you get the 2am knock on the door.
