Bad News From America’s Top Spy

February 16, 2009 “Truthdig” — – We have a remarkable ability to create our own monsters. A few decades of meddling in the Middle East with our Israeli doppelgänger and we get Hezbollah, Hamas, al-Qaida, the Iraqi resistance movement and a resurgent Taliban. Now we trash the world economy and destroy the ecosystem and sit back to watch our handiwork. Hints of our brave new world seeped out Thursday when Washington’s new director of national intelligence, retired Adm. Dennis Blair, testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee. He warned that the deepening economic crisis posed perhaps our gravest threat to stability and national security. It could trigger, he said, a return to the “violent extremism” of the 1920s and 1930s.

It turns out that Wall Street, rather than Islamic jihad, has produced our most dangerous terrorists. You wouldn’t know this from the Obama administration, which seems hellbent on draining the blood out of the body politic and transfusing it into the corpse of our financial system. But by the time Barack Obama is done all we will be left with is a corpse—a corpse and no blood. And then what? We will see accelerated plant and retail closures, inflation, an epidemic of bankruptcies, new rounds of foreclosures, bread lines, unemployment surpassing the levels of the Great Depression and, as Blair fears, social upheaval.

Former astronaut speaks out on global warming

SANTA FE, N.M. – Former astronaut Harrison Schmitt, who walked on the moon and once served New Mexico in the U.S. Senate, doesn’t believe that humans are causing global warming.

“I don’t think the human effect is significant compared to the natural effect,” said Schmitt, who is among 70 skeptics scheduled to speak next month at the International Conference on Climate Change in New York.

Schmitt contends that scientists “are being intimidated” if they disagree with the idea that burning fossil fuels has increased carbon dioxide levels, temperatures and sea levels.

“They’ve seen too many of their colleagues lose grant funding when they haven’t gone along with the so-called political consensus that we’re in a human-caused global warming,” Schmitt said.

Economic Stimulus Bill Mandates $954 Million for Vaccinations, $545 Million for “Genomics Programs”

(NaturalNews) While the Obama administration is attempting to pass the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 in a hurry, NaturalNews readers have begun actually reading the bill, and they’re finding some worrying language that should raise concern among people interested in preserving health freedom and protecting the health of all Americans.

Genomics programs?
The economic stimulus bill also requests more than half a billion dollars for “genomics programs”, saying:

$545,000,000 shall be used as an additional amount to carry out chronic disease, health promotion, and genomics programs

What’s interesting about this last quote is that it essentially says this half a billion dollars should be used to carry out three things:

1) Chronic disease programs
2) Health promotion
3) Genomics programs

I don’t have a problem with the second point. “Health promotion” sounds good (unless it’s nothing more than mammograms and mental health screening programs designed to sell more chemotherapy and psych drugs). But what, exactly, is meant by the phrase “…to carry out chronic disease”? And what is meant by “genomics programs”? Are we talking about government-funded genetic experimentation on human babies, perhaps? It wouldn’t be the first time. See: http://www.naturalnews.com/019189.html

America Has To Come To Grips With The Fact It Is Bankrupt

We have been making good market calls, end the tax havens, bankrupt America, no solution from the banks, we believe the bailouts wont work, no return to confidence in the markets, re-inflation may be what will keep it all going,

We have been fortunate enough to make some important calls over the past ten years. The top of the stock market in early April of 2000; the beginning of the gold bull market in June 2000; 9/11 in November ten months before it happened; the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars; the beginning of the real estate bubble; the top of that market in June of 2005; the beginning of the subprime fiasco in 2006 and the beginning of the commercial real estate freeze. We also forecast the terrible financial conditions facing states and the freezing up of insurance and the municipal bond market. We called the recession in February 2007 and told readers to get out of the market at 14,000. That’s with the exception of gold and silver and oil shares. The recession was right on schedule. The depression that began two weeks ago happened quicker than we had anticipated, but it is here and now.
