Ron Paul Talks With Jay Leno on Oct. 30, 2007
This 5th of November,
The patriot money-bomb plot.
For Ron Paul’s the reason,
That this campaign season,
We’re giving it all that we’ve got.
Send one hundred dollars,
And tell talk show callers,
To answer sweet liberty’s call.
This 5th of November,
Give one hundred bucks to Ron Paul.
- Darwin Scott Wycherley
Ron Paul has won every single Republican debate poll, online or text message based. Some try to imply hacking is responsible (if so, there should be an investigation) or that supporters go out and buy 100s of cell phones each.

Do the Bush Administration’s recent presidential directives portend the end of American democracy?
By S. Corey Thomas/GNN.tv
On May 9, 2007 the White House quietly issued a press release outlining a new National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive. Designated as both NSPD-51 and HSPD-20, the document details a revised strategy for the continuity of federal government in the event of a “catastrophic emergency,” dramatically restructuring the existing plan set forth by the Clinton administration. With a stroke of his pen, George W. Bush added his signature and thus empowered the Office of the President with autocratic authority over widespread aspects of American life, public and private.

WASHINGTON — The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s No. 2 official apologized Friday for leading a staged news conference Tuesday in which FEMA employees posed as reporters while real reporters listened on a telephone conference line and were barred from asking questions.
“We are reviewing our press procedures and will make the changes necessary to ensure that all of our communications are straightforward and transparent,” Vice Adm. Harvey Johnson, FEMA’s deputy administrator, said in a four-paragraph statement.
Rudy’s Pants On Fire
Secret testimony shows that Rudy’s stump speech is inflated, at best

In a recent broadside deriding the Clinton administration’s response to Al Qaeda, Rudy Giuliani told an audience at Pat Robertson’s Regent University: “Bin Laden declared war on us. We didn’t hear it. I thought it was pretty clear at the time, but a lot of people didn’t see it, couldn’t see it.” Other tenets of his standard stump speech include the assertion that he’s been “studying terrorism” for more than 30 years, and that “the thing that distinguishes me on terrorism is that I have more experience in dealing with it” than the other presidential candidates.
However, in private testimony before the 9/11 Commission in 2004, Rudy gave a very different version of how much he knew about terrorism when the World Trade Center was attacked. That testimony isn’t scheduled to be released publicly until after the 2008 presidential election, but the Voice has obtained a copy of it. And it reveals a New York mayor who was anything but an “expert on terrorism.”
Fears that government could define “Internet radicalization” and criticism as terrorism mount, violent comments left on messageboards by trolls could be exploited to entrap peaceful 9/11 truthers

A new bill that recently passed the House and is headed for Senate approval has online activists worried that the vague definitions used for defining the Internet’s contribution to radicalization of potential terrorists could lead to a government crackdown on talk radio, free speech and the 9/11 truth movement.
The bill is H.R. 1955: Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 and passed Congress after a bipartisan vote on October 23rd.
Ostensibly, the bill targets United States citizens because of its constant reference to basic Constitutional protections, but this has led some to fear that it is intended to shut down free speech on the Internet and stifle patriot and alternative talk radio networks.

10/02/07 “ICH” — – A review of The True Story Of The Bilderberg Group, By Daniel Estulin
It is difficult to re-educate people who have been brought up on nationalism to the idea of relinquishing part of their sovereignty to a supra-national body. ~ Bilderberg Group founder, Prince Bernhard
As a rhetorical question, can someone please explain to me how it is that progressive liberals such as John Edwards and Hillary Clinton, as well as do-gooder humanitarians with multiple social projects ongoing such as the Rockefellers and every Royal House in Europe, can perennially attend Bilderberg meetings apparently knowing that the final objective of this despicable group of hoodlums is a fascist One World Empire? ~ Daniel Estulin (P.318)~
BARNEGAT TOWNSHIP – Charles Giles has endured failing health, mounting medical bills and limitations to life as he knew it before Sept. 11, 2001.
Soon, he might add homelessness to the list.
When Giles, then an EMT, responded to the disaster scene at the World Trade Center more than six years ago, he didn’t think it would later cost him his home.
But days of inhaling fumes at the site continue to provoke health problems that have prevented Giles from working. The problems were compounded by unanswered medical claims.
Family hardships that began with cutting out cable TV have culminated in their home’s foreclosure in March and impending sheriff’s sale Oct. 30.

BRITISH special forces have crossed into Iran several times in recent months as part of a secret border war against the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s Al-Quds special forces, defence sources have disclosed.
There have been at least half a dozen intense firefights between the SAS and arms smugglers, a mixture of Iranians and Shi’ite militiamen.
NEW YORK — A former employee at the city medical examiner’s office pleaded guilty to helping embezzle millions of dollars, some of which was intended to help identify victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack, authorities said Wednesday.
Rosa Abreu pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan to charges of embezzlement, money laundering and conspiracy. She faces a maximum 75 years in prison when she is sentenced on Jan. 23, federal prosecutors said.
Sen. Kerry questioner was taken down after pleading, ‘Don’t Tase me bro!’
GAINESVILLE, Florida – University of Florida police were justified when they used a Taser against a student who refused to stop questioning Senator John Kerry at a campus event, according to a state investigation released Wednesday.
A 17-page executive summary of the 300-page Florida Department of Law Enforcement report was released by the University of Florida after some questioned the use of force against student Andrew Meyer.
FRANCES MOORE LAPPÉ

For over thirty years, Frances Moore Lappé has been addressing how people live in the most fundamental ways, starting with how and what they eat—as she authored the groundbreaking Diet for a Small Planet. Many have been the books—Food First, World Hunger, Hope’s Edge, Democracy’s Edge, and more—and actions since, and she is still, vitally, very much at it. Her newest book, Getting a Grip: Clarity, Creativity, and Courage in a World Gone Mad (Small Planet Media), brings her to Elliott Bay this evening for this welcome return. “There is a small number of people every generation who are forerunners, in thought, action, spirit, who swerve past the barriers of greed and power to hold a torch high for the rest of us. Frances Moore Lappé is one of those.” – Howard Zinn.

Deception: Pakistan, the United States, and the Secret Trade in Nuclear Weapons (??)
Discussion & Book Signing
University Washington District Store
A decade worth of interviews went into this investigation of Pakistan’s nuclear activities. Pakistan has been an “ally” of the U.S. for years, but have they also been trying to sell weapons to regimes that wish us ill? And why have government officials tried to discredit anyone speaking out against them?
Two former high-ranking policy experts from the Bush Administration say the U.S. has been gearing up for a war with Iran for years, despite claiming otherwise. It’ll be Iraq all over again.
In the years after 9/11, Flynt Leverett and Hillary Mann worked at the highest levels of the Bush administration as Middle East policy experts for the National Security Council. Mann conducted secret negotiations with Iran. Leverett traveled with Colin Powell and advised Condoleezza Rice. They each played crucial roles in formulating policy for the region leading up to the war in Iraq. But when they left the White House, they left with a growing sense of alarm — not only was the Bush administration headed straight for war with Iran, it had been set on this course for years. That was what people didn’t realize. It was just like Iraq, when the White House was so eager for war it couldn’t wait for the UN inspectors to leave. The steps have been many and steady and all in the same direction. And now things are getting much worse. We are getting closer and closer to the tripline, they say.
NEW YORK – He became the face of post-Sept. 11 illness after his death in early 2006, galvanizing lawmakers and health care advocates to lobby for research and treatment for thousands who said the debris-filled air at ground zero made them sick.
James Zadroga, the 34-year-old retired police detective who died of respiratory failure after working hundreds of hours at the World Trade Center site, was often cited by those advocates as a “sentinel case” — the first health-related casualty linked to ground zero, suggesting there would be more to follow.
The city’s medical examiner stunned that community this week in a letter declaring that Zadroga’s death had nothing to do with the toxic air he breathed while working at ground zero
