In the event of nuclear war, a powerful meteor strike or even a zombie apocalypse, the thoroughly protected doomsday plane is ready to keep the president, secretary of defense, Joint Chiefs of Staff and other key personnel in the air and out of danger. It may not deflect a Twitter photo scandal, but it can outrun a nuclear explosion and stay in the air for days without refueling.
“Any Attack on Pakistan Would be Construed as an Attack on China”
“These guns weren’t going for a positive cause, they were going for a negative cause,“
There is wild disagreement about what is causing it, but what most people can agree on is that there is something fundamentally wrong with America. The fabric of American society just does not seem to be as strong as it used to.
Most Americans have no idea just how bad the financial problems over in Europe are right now. The truth is that the entire European financial system is teetering on the brink of disaster. Ireland and Greece have already received bailouts and Portugal, Spain, Italy, France and Belgium are all drowning in an ocean of unsustainable debt. Sovereign credit ratings all over Europe have being slashed in recent months. For example, a while back Moody’s Investors Service cut Ireland’s bond rating by five levels. Up until now Europe has weathered all of this financial instability fairly well, but now huge new financial problems in Portugal threaten to send the European debt crisis spinning out of control.
Today there are two very different Americas. In one America, the stock market is soaring, huge bonuses are taken for granted, the good times are rolling and people are spending money as if they will be able to “live the dream” for the rest of their lives. In the other America, the one where most of the rest of us live, unemployment is rampant, a million families were kicked out of their homes last year and hordes of American families are drowning in debt. The gap between the rich and the poor is bigger today than it ever has been before. In fact, this article is not so much about “rich vs poor” as it is about “the rich vs the rest of us”. Barack Obama and Ben Bernanke keep touting an “economic recovery”, but the truth is that the only ones that seem to be benefiting from this recovery are those at the very top of the economic food chain.
Most Americans believe that we still live in a capitalist system and that free markets primarily determine the growth and development of our economy. But is that really the case? No, sadly it is not. The truth is that the U.S. Federal Reserve does a tremendous amount of central economic planning. So what makes the central economic planning that the Federal Reserve does different from the central economic planning that communist China does? Yes, in China it is the government that does the central planning and in the United States it is a private central bank that does the central planning, but other than that are there any huge differences? And if our economy is centrally planned, then how can we continue to claim that we still have a free market capitalist system?
1) There is “no real scientific proof” that the current warming is caused by the rise of greenhouse gases from man’s activity.
2) Man-made carbon dioxide emissions throughout human history constitute less than 0.00022 percent of the total naturally emitted from the mantle of the earth during geological history.
3) Warmer periods of the Earth’s history came around 800 years before rises in CO2 levels.
The number of people who get sick during outbreaks of norovirus on cruise ships often is higher than is officially reported, a new study suggests.
Researchers from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta writing this week in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases report 40% of passengers who fell ill during a closely studied outbreak of norovirus on a ship in 2009 failed to inform the vessel’s infirmary, leaving them uncounted in official tallies.
On January 20th, 2009, timed to coincide with the inauguration of Barak Obama, the world was awakened by Heartland Payments to news of the most massive security breach in the history of the payment card industry. The cardholder data of well over 130 million consumers had been compromised; exposing millions of accounts to dangerous international identify thieves. The enormity of the breach highlighted the inadequate security features Heartland Payments provided to safeguard their customers’ sensitive data.
Heartland, the processor for more than 250,000 businesses, over 60,000 of which are restaurants, initially released a statement minimizing the extent of the breach, and even created a website to downplay its ongoing effects. The nominal effort to “inform” potential victims as to the extent of their damages have amounted to an open attempt to change the official story and whitewash the damage reports while offering little information to the consumer, including none of the names of affected companies. Heartland has neither offered free credit monitoring nor ID theft protection for victims, implying that these efforts may provide information that could lead to more identities being stolen. Protecting the consumers’ identity is evidently not the responsibility of this card processor
The United States is rapidly becoming the very first “post-industrial” nation on the globe. All great economic empires eventually become fat and lazy and squander the great wealth that their forefathers have left them, but the pace at which America is accomplishing this is absolutely amazing. It was America that was at the forefront of the industrial revolution. It was America that showed the world how to mass produce everything from automobiles to televisions to airplanes. It was the great American manufacturing base that crushed Germany and Japan in World War II. But now we are witnessing the deindustrialization of America. Tens of thousands of factories have left the United States in the past decade alone. Millions upon millions of manufacturing jobs have been lost in the same time period.
Artificial Sweeteners will kill you.
Oil industry experts warn that the price for a gallon gas will reach $5 by summer. They blame the conflict in Libya, who produces less than 3% of the world’s supply, for exploding prices. The truth is changing day to day events should never change gas prices immediately. The gasoline you buy at the pump was brought out of the ground and purchased by the barrel 3-6 months ago. At the cheaper rate.
They continually espouse the need for new energy sources, for the last 40 years or so, yet make no moves towards removing our dependence. The truth is we have enough oil in the United States to meet our needs for 100 years. The First Model -T ran on Biofuel. We had electric car capabilities 100 years ago. Cars have been invented that run on only water. It’s not about the money. It’s about dependency and control.
Destroy the World economy. Remove the Middle Class. Create a one world government.
“The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by the “agentur” (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions.”
“The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine. During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm.”
“The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”
The Kyodo News Agency reports that radiation around the hobbled Fukushima nuclear plant is 1,600 times the normal level. The astounding figure was released to the media by the International Atomic Energy Agency officials on Monday.
