Joel Skousen about the growing government assault on privacy and liberty, as well as New World Order and war scenarios. The current security precautions such as at airports are not really to stop terrorists, but to ferret out potential dissidents and resistors who could pose a problem for the future police state, he suggested. We are already seeing the three aspects necessary to establish this police state, Skousen outlined-- a false threat of terrorism, thug-like individuals in the police, and a judiciary that won't prosecute the police.
The US COLLAPSE will create a domino effect across the world. This will undoubtably occur because nothing has changed. These statistics prove that the economy is rapidly sinking yet the media will attempt to discredit it.
The real economy is dead and what was left is being shipped overseas.
#1 The homeownership rate in the United States has dropped to the lowest level in 19 years.
#2 Consumer spending for durable goods has dropped by 3.23 percent since November. This is a clear sign that an economic slowdown is ahead.
#3 Major retailers are closing stores at the fastest pace that we have seen since the collapse of Lehman Brothers.
#4 According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 20 percent of all families in the United States do not have a single member that is employed. That means that one out of every five families in the entire country is completely unemployed.
#5 There are 1.3 million fewer jobs in the U.S. economy than when the last recession began in December 2007. Meanwhile, our population has continued to grow steadily since that time.
#6 According to a new report from the National Employment Law Project, the quality of the jobs that have been "created" since the end of the last recession does not match the quality of the jobs lost during the last recession...
#7 After adjusting for inflation, men who work full-time in America today make less money than men who worked full-time in America 40 years ago.
#8 It is hard to believe, but 62 percent of all Americans make $20 or less an hour at this point.
#9 69 percent of the federal budget is spent either on entitlements or on welfare programs.
#10 As I wrote about the other day, there are now 49 million Americans that are dealing with food insecurity.

"Don't get involved in Ukraine." Former New Mexico governor and 2012 presidential candidate Gary Johnson gave this advice to the US Wednesday in an interview with RT. The libertarian politician says the US has no national security interests in Ukraine, and intervention there would be analogous to Russian interference in the affairs of Puerto Rico. Although the country has an obligation to protect its citizens, Ukraine does not pose any threats and Americans should be wary of politicians beating their chests and arguing for intervention. RT's Lindsay France spoke with Johnson to get his thoughts on the continuing crisis in Ukraine.
The rise of superbugs and the misuse of antibiotics has enabled treatable diseases to once again become killers according to the World Health Organisation (WHO). A statement on Wednesday by the WHO comes as a United Nations study on antimicrobial resistance showed the problem was becoming a global emergency. In the first global report that gathered data from 114 countries the WHO said superbugs were able to evade event the hardest-hitting antibiotics. Al Jazeera's Simon McGregor-Wood reports.
We have entered the digital realm in the 21st century and as a result of the global acceptance of bitcoin as money, various altcoins are now beginning to rise and earn a place in this new market.

Through a shadowy group called the American Legislative Exchange Council, the billionaire Koch brothers have helped advance a number of state laws that benefit corporate and right-wing interests. An internal document shows ALEC is tracking 131 bills which, among other issues, seek to roll back renewable energy standards, combat federal coal regulations and tout the Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline. ALEC's efforts recently paid off in Oklahoma where Gov. Mary Fallin has signed a measure allowing utilities to charge customers who generate energy from solar panels or small wind turbines. ALEC's victory in Oklahoma comes as a federal judge has struck down a voter ID law in Wisconsin, saying it unfairly targeted the poor and people of color. ALEC has been exposed as the secretive powerhouse behind voter ID laws and other right-wing initiatives across the country, thanks largely to the reporting of our guest, Lisa Graves, president of the newly merged The Progressive magazine and the Center for Media and Democracy.
Over the past 100 years the global money supply has increased dramatically, leading to rising prices, ordinary people forced into heavy borrowing and government debt spiralling out of control -- US national debt, for example, currently stands at more than US$17.5 trillion (as of 30/04/14). In response to this, some people have been calling for a return to the gold standard, a monetary system where the value of national currencies is directly linked to gold. This is different to the fiat money system currently in use the world over, where the value of national currencies is determined by governments. Other people, however, are suggesting that the cyrptocurrency Bitcoin could be the answer, with many asking if it's the "new gold standard"

Once the Internet is turned over to UN "global" stewardship, it won't matter what the FCC says anyway. Whatever happens, the People will be restricted, while the gov'ts and their approved activists will have free reign and control. Little guys will be regulated and priced out.
What we are looking for is "free market". However, cable is very close to being a monopolistic utility. And with utilities, it is hard to have more than one supplier to each household for competition and a truly free market. Another analogy would be an interstate highway. The highway is free to use by all people both commercial and public. However, the commercial use of the highway is very damaging to the highway so they are required to pay fees for the highway's upkeep. The public and the commercial enterprises normally travel at the same speeds on this highway. What the FCC is proposing is that the commercial enterprises can hog all the fast lanes and the rest of the public can use the ditch (the more money, the more an ISP can discriminate). The FCC should have ruled the opposite, that Netflix and Google should PAY service providers because they hog all the lanes and slow down the speed for everybody else. Then the service providers could use this money to upgrade the infrastructure for all. Netflix and Google are like very heavy trucks creating potholes in the road and then demanding that everyone else should pay to fix them.

Spain's unemployment has skyrocketed to 26%. Consumer confidence implodes, people are not optimistic about the future. Case-Shiller reports that this is the longest home price decline since 2012. The supreme court denied the appeal and the NDAA stands. People can be put into jail without due process if deemed a domestic terrorist. The Government is implementing an ID system on the internet to control, track and censor everyone. The Senate agrees, the people of the US do not need to know the reason and who was killed via drones strikes, it is to complicated and the people will not understand it. The people in the middle east and waging war against the puppet governments. The US cancels bio-weapons censors funding. Be prepared for a false flag.

Saudis Parade It's Nuclear Missiles For The First Time.
Saudi Arabia became the first Middle East nation to publicly exhibit its nuclear-capable missiles. The long-range, liquid propellant DF-3 ballistic missile (NATO designated CSS-2), purchased from China 27 years ago, was displayed for the first time at a Saudi military parade Tuesday, April 29, in the eastern military town of Hafar Al-Batin, at the junction of the Saudi-Kuwaiti-Iraqi borders. The DF-3 has a range of 2,650 km and carries a payload of 2,150 kg. It is equipped with a single nuclear warhead with a 1-3 MT yield. Watched by a wide array of Saudi defense and military dignitaries, headed by Crown Prince and Deputy Prime Minister Salman bin Abdulaziz, the parade marked the end of the large-scale “Abdullah’s Sword” military war game. Conspicuous on the saluting stand was the Pakistani Chief of Staff Gen. Raheel Sharif alongside eminent visitors, including King Hamad of Bahrain and Sheikh Muhammad bin Zayed, the crown prince of Abu Dhabi. debkafile’s military and intelligence sources report the event was deliberately loaded with highly-significant messages, the foremost of which was that the Middle East is in the throes of a nuclear arms race in the wake of the Iranian program. 1. The oil kingdom was saying loud and clear that it has obtained nuclear missiles and is ready to use them in the event of an armed conflict with Iran. 2. The message for Washington was that Riyadh adheres to its adamant objections to the comprehensive accord for resolving the Iranian nuclear question which is racing toward its finale with the six world powers led by the US. The Saudis share Israel’s conviction that this pact - far from dismantling Iran’s nuclear capacity - will seal the Islamic Republic's elevation to the status of pre-nuclear power. The result will be a Middle East war in which the Saudis will take part.
“once a standing army is established, in any country, the people lose their liberty.”
“Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.”
“If you are an ordinary person, then you can prepare yourself for war by moving to the countryside and building a farm, but you must take guns with you, as the hordes of starving will be roaming. Also, even though the elite will have their safe havens and specialist shelters, they must be just as careful during the war as the ordinary civilians, because their shelters can still be compromised.”

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is, perhaps, the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and un-mint the modern ledger-entry currency.” Major L L B Angus
The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or so dependent on its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system will bear its burdens without complaint and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.

"Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government, applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers.
This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world.
By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished."
