Independence Day: How Far We Have Fallen

By Pat Anderson
"Fear is the passion of slaves." – Patrick Henry

As we get ready to celebrate our nation’s 235th birthday this coming Monday by shoving cheeseburgers into our faces, guzzling beer, and generally patting ourselves on the back for being so absolutely wonderful and amazing, I’d like to ask you something. What exactly is it you think you are celebrating? Are you celebrating the numerous illegal wars being waged for the Zionists in the so-called “war on terror?” Are you celebrating the fact that an ailing 95 year old woman is no longer allowed to travel without first being humiliated by your tyrannical and out of control “security” agencies? Or, are you celebrating the fact that your freedom loving government has no problem with the false Israel attacking Americans trying to provide much needed aid to those not fortunate enough to have simple medicines and equipment that we take for granted?

How far we have fallen from what the vision of our forefathers was for all of us. They must be spinning in their graves seeing what we have allowed their vision to become: a warmongering puppet nation for the Zionists and moneychangers. How many have read the Declaration Of Independence and truly understand what it means? We threw off the chains of dictators just to allow ourselves to become enslaved once again, and yet people sit around patting themselves on the back, glorifying the murder of innocents, calling those who speak the truth the “lunatic fringe” and unpatriotic traitors. You fools.

“For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and provide for it.” – Patrick Henry

How far we have fallen from statements like the above. The truth is ridiculed and the lies of the slave masters are embraced in a go along to get along attitude. Would this country exist today if this was the attitude of that time? Would it exist today if our forefathers allowed themselves to worship mammon instead of liberty for each of their fellow men? Yet as you sit there celebrating how truly wonderful your “freedom” is, you hypocritically allow those very freedoms you celebrate be taken from you, your family, and your neighbors, all while patting yourselves on the back.

You just don’t get it, do you? Unless we are absolutely vigilant and are prepared to give everything to protect our freedoms, we cannot have what it is you congratulate yourselves for on this upcoming holiday. I honestly don’t think your average sheep has any idea what this holiday is supposed to represent other than gorging themselves on potato salad. They lack the conviction of their fathers and have become swollen on the scraps thrown from their master’s table. Maybe it is the inability to look beyond their own little world and their selfish wants. Maybe a little history lesson is in desperate need, but who is to say they would even care?

What is the definition of independence?

The state or quality of being independent; freedom from dependence; exemption from reliance on, or control by, others; self-subsistence or maintenance; direction of one's own affairs without interference.

Exemption from reliance on, or control by, others, there’s a thought.

What about liberty?

The state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one's way of life, behavior, or political views; the state of not being imprisoned or enslaved.

Yet, oppressive restrictions are being carried out by your government on a consistent basis. Just ask those whom this government has no authority over in Guantanamo, or you, the income taxpayer, being forced to pay you hard earned money because of an amendment that was never legally ratified, or those being thrown in jail harming no one in the smoking of a joint. There are countless others if one really wants to research the subject, but that is up to you if you truly want to learn and do something about it.

This brings us to the quote I chose to start off with:

“Fear is the passion of slaves.” – Patrick Henry

Is fear of losing what you have really more important to you than the welfare of your children’s future? Are you so selfish that you are willing to allow their freedoms to suffer because you are afraid to speak up or you have the go along to get along attitude? I wonder though if it is fear or indifference that drives this. For myself, it’s not if I don’t have anything to hide, I have nothing to fear. It’s I have done nothing wrong, you have no evidence proving otherwise, so go to hell until you do. I am guaranteed that right, not only by the famous “goddamned piece of paper,” but by something higher than man. So are you, if you just get the balls to stand up and take it.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for celebrating when there is something to celebrate. At this moment, I find it to be a farce because we are a far cry from what should have been. People don’t take this opportunity to learn and uphold what is right and just in this world, nor do they want to learn what this holiday is really all about. It’s a glorification of hypocrisy in every sense. I just hope it’s not too far gone to be able to get it back.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

Gilad Atzmon: Gaza Flotilla vs Diaspora Jewry


The Israelis are preparing themselves for another massacre on the high seas.

This should not take us by surprise: after all, people who are detached from a true notion of history, and driven by a continuous fantasy of destruction, would be the last to draw a lesson from their past.

Earlier today I learned that The Israeli Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs Ministry held a simulation practice, ahead of the Gaza flotilla: in the course of the exercise, Minister Yuly Edelstein formed a ‘special situation room’ that is designated to disseminate ‘public diplomacy’ on the internet ,via messages, 
photos, video clips and additional materials, with emphasis on Diaspora 
communities, Jewish organisations, and friends of Israel around 
the world.

Just in case you weren’t sure what the expected role of Diaspora Jews is, I guess that by now Minister Edelstein has provided the answer.

However, the most interesting part of the story is the detailed description of the flotilla simulation itself: the imaginary scenarios depicted by Minister Edelstein and the IDF provide a glimpse into Israeli collective psychosis.

“The exercise was based on a scenario in which approximately 500 activists on 
approximately ten ships reached Israel's territorial waters at 10:00,” says the Israeli document. 
”Despite having been warned by the IDF, the ships continued on their way. At 
10:30, the Israel Navy began approaching the ships. Stun grenades were 
thrown at the IDF soldiers, as well as one live grenade that caused a number 
of casualties to our forces.”

But what are we to make of such an absurd supposition in Edelstein's exercise, that the flotilla volunteers ( many of whom are women and elderly ) will be armed and dangerous, and intent of attacking the IDF? We have seen repeated statements from the Flotilla organisers reassuring the Israelis that the Flotilla is a peaceful humanitarian mission that has no combative intentions, and the media have been invited to visit the boats to verify the innocent nature of the Gaza bound cargo.

What is it then? Why are these Israelis preparing for a war? The answer is clear and simple: as I have explored in the past, Jewish identity politics is shaped by a totally unique psychological disorder. I call it Pre Traumatic Stress Syndrome (as opposed to Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome). Jewish reality is shaped by an imaginary fictional future threat. To repeat the 19Th century Yiddish joke. “A Jewish telegram: get worried, details to follow.” Yet, the lack of capacity to differentiate between reality and imagination leads to the inevitable emergence of the most tragic possible scenarios. Time after time, the Israeli collective easily buys into any given tragic fictional and imaginary treat, and would approve any 'counter' measures.

The end result is known to us all: an endless chain of colossal Israeli war crimes, that are committed in the name of the Jewish people.

The Israeli simulation scenario continues, with an inevitable body count: “At 11:00, the order was given for IDF units to 
physically seize control of the ships on which there was resistance. Our 
forces were attacked with live – and other – weapons and were obliged to 
neutralise the assailants. The results, by 11:45, were ten IDF soldiers 
wounded (one critically, four severely and the rest lightly). Among the 
flotilla participants, there were two dead and 14 wounded, including two 

Brilliant isn’t it? The peace activists (most of whom, remember, are women and elderly) ‘opened fire,’ seeking a battle with the best and most lethal Israeli commando unit. How realistic is that ?

Then, as the imagined scenario unfolds, a fierce battle develops, in which just fourteen activists are wounded, and only one dies. At this point, for those who fail to remember what really happened last time around, here is video footage of Israeli commandos executing peace activists on the Mavi Marmara.

But Minister Edelstein is far from being worried: after all, the Israelis have friends around the world. “As the events were taking place,” the scenario continues, “the media – with emphasis on the Internet, 
Facebook and Twitter – were flooded with mendacious reports (by private 
users, Hamas and others among Israel's enemies). The situation room, in 
coordination with the IDF Spokesperson and the National Information 
Directorate, began to disseminate credible messages to Jewish communities 
and friends of Israel around the world. Those in the situation room 
responsible for new media began to update messages on the social networks, 
Facebook and Twitter.

For those of us who still fail to recognise the shifts and changes that have taken place within Zionism, Edelstein makes it clear: whilst Zionism was initially a plan to re-settle the Jews in Zion, nowadays, to be a Zionist means to stay in the Diaspora, and to 'tweet for Israel'. The role of American, French and British Jews, according to Edelstein, is to coordinate with Israel, and to join the Hasbara war: "Given the provocation by the flotilla,” says Diaspora Minister Edelstein, “we 
established a special situation room that will ensure coordination between 
Government officials, Diaspora Jewish communities and friends of Israel 
around the world.. I 
am certain that alongside us will stand significant force multipliers in the 
form of thousands of activists from Jewish communities around the world."

I do not have any doubt that many Jews around the world want nothing to do with Minister Edelstein and his Hasbara initiative. They are clearly going to ignore his call. I also feel sure that many Jews feel sickened and ashamed to wake up, all too often, into yet another atrocious Israeli war crime.

Yet, if the Israelis themselves clearly regard Diaspora Jews as their ‘foreign brigades’, surely we should also be allowed to look into the issue, and examine the lethal continuum between the Jewish State and its vile supporters around the world.

Massive wildfires threaten to ignite 30000 barrels of plutonium waste at New Mexico nuclear weapons facility

(NaturalNews) Threats of radioactive disaster from what is shaping up to be the largest wildfire in the state's history are escalating, as heavy winds and plenty of dry brush have fueled flames to within 50 feet of New Mexico's Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), home of the first atomic bomb.

Crews claim there are currently no fires burning on the lab's 36 square mile property, but the entire town of Los Alamos, population 11,000, has been evacuated, and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is now on radiation alert in the area.

As of Sunday, the massive wildfire had already burned up nearly 145 square miles of land across New Mexico, or 92,735 acres, which is just a few hundred acres short of the massive Dry Lakes fire that swept Gila National Forest in 2003.

But the current wildfire's proximity to the nuclear facility is particularly troubling because there are about 30,000 55-gallon drums of radioactive plutonium waste on the site that, according to some reports, are not particularly well-protected.

"The concern is that these drums will get so hot that they'll burst," said Joni Arends, executive director of Concerned Citizens for Nuclear Safety. "That would put this toxic material into the plume. It's a concern for everybody."

EPA is now monitoring for radiation the giant smoke plume that has been building and spreading across the area as a result of the fire. Because the nuclear facility itself has conducted countless nuclear experiments, some experts say that nuclear-contaminated soil, in addition to the waste drums, could also be disrupted by the fire, releasing old, but deadly, radioactive waste into the plume.

LANL officials claim that everything is under control, and that the nuclear waste drums are at a low risk of catching fire or exploding from high heat because several canyons allegedly separate them from the current location of the fire. Fire officials have also been burning out dead zone areas in between the fire and the plant in the hopes that doing so will eliminate the brush fuel needed by the fire to spread any closer.

Greek coastguard intercepts Gaza ship: activist


(Reuters) - The Greek coastguard intercepted a boat carrying U.S. activists soon after they set sail from Greece on Friday to join a pro-Palestinian flotilla to Gaza, one of the activists said.

The boat, dubbed "The Audacity of Hope," had just left Perama port, near Piraeus, for the open seas, a Reuters witness said.

A flotilla of boats planning to challenge Israel's naval blockade of the Gaza Strip is expected to sail next week, after repeated delays that activists blame on Israeli sabotage. Israel has denied the accusations.

"We are just here, two miles off Piraeus. We've been stopped by the coastguard, their ship maneuvered in front of us and they are now talking to the captain, they want us to turn around," Ann Wright, one of the activists, told Reuters.

"We are non-violent, we pose no threat," she added, saying that the group was informed of the sailing ban just as it was setting off.

Greek authorities said earlier on Friday that ships bound for Gaza were prohibited from leaving Greek ports.

It was not immediately clear how the boat's departure would affect the overall flotilla plans.

Greek coastguard says orders are to stop ship


July 1, 2011

ATHENS, Greece (Ma'an) -- The US Boat to Gaza left the Athens Port at 4:50 p.m. on Friday, expecting to be stopped by Greek authorities in the country's coastal waters.

6:38 p.m. - Second coastguard ship leaves scene, first pulls back from boat, remains stationed at stern.

5:53 p.m. - Second ship from Greek coastguard arrives at US Boat to Gaza.

5:35 p.m. - Greek coastguard officials ask to see ship's paperwork, which the captain insists he filed weeks ago. Via radio communication, the coastguard insists that the ship return to port for the results of its inspection, captain replies that an inspection has been completed and announces: "We cannot return to the port, we fear sabotage," as coastguard says there are orders to prevent the ship from leaving Greek waters.

5:25 p.m. - Greece officials make contact with US Boat captain asking vessel to halt passage, captain cuts ship engines

5:20 p.m. - Greek port authority blocks way of ship an estimated five nautical miles from shore.

Activists aboard the vessel gathered at its bow in the face of the Greek coastguard ship, holding up signs calling for the end to Israel's blockade of Gaza, and chanting slogans asking that the boat be allowed to pass.

Greek waters extend an average of six nautical miles from the coastline, after which are international waters.

A source in Athens told Ma'an shortly before the ship sailed. that the Greek government issued an order prohibiting the ships from sailing.

Amid the din of celebratory music as the ship left port, organizer Anne Wright told Ma'an that any attempt to stop the ship would be "pure evidence of the might of the Israeli government," who allegedly threatened to cut economic ties with Greece over the flotilla.

"I appeal to the people of Greece to protect and support this civilian to civilian initiative, and call on them to demonstrate in support."

The US boat was the only ship from the 10-boat flotilla to leave port on Friday, with reports saying that a Canadian vessel might also attempt to leave, while a Spanish boat had tried and failed.

Organizers of the US boat said they are defying a Greek police order to remain at the dock until an inspection process is complete, following a complaint made by an Israeli organization alleging that the ship was unfit to sail.

Wright said both the Canadian and Spanish boats are tied up in similar paperwork, but noted that she hoped the audacity of the US crew would encourage others to follow suit.

Ten boats were set to sail from ports in Athens and Turkey, with an Irish ship forced to withdraw after damage done to its propeller rendered it unfit for sail, with activists crying sabotage. A group of Jordanian activists announced Thursday that they would join the Freedom Flotilla II, and purchased a ship in Greece for the purpose.

All ships were bound for the Gaza Strip, in an effort to break Israel's five year siege on the Palestinian coastal enclave.

Video - Eyewitness Libya: Cynthia McKinney

Eyewitness Libya: Cynthia McKinney from on Vimeo.

By a margin of 2-to-1, people in the United States oppose the war in Libya, and there is growing Congressional opposition. The Obama White House offered an absurd rationale for its refusal to comply with the War Powers Act of 1973, asserting that the massive bombing of Libya by U.S., British and French war planes is somehow different from the "hostilities" associated with war.

At the same time, the U.S. government and the other NATO members who are raining bombs and missiles on downtown Tripoli are refusing any effort by the Libyan government to negotiate a resolution of the civil war. They want to carry out regime change in Libya and a create client government in a country that possesses the largest oil reserves in Africa and the ninth largest in the world.

Israel claims Flotilla carries chemical weapons

Marijuana gone GMO!

By Barbara H. Peterson
Farm Wars

Marijuana Growers: Hang onto your pot, here come the genetically modified genes!

It is painfully obvious that mad scientists have gone wild and are in charge of our health and food supply. And now, they want to grab hold of Mary Jane, Weed, Cannabis, Pot, Marijuana, or whatever else you want to call it.

Yeah, we know it has medicinal properties, and so do they. That is one of the reasons it has remained illegal for so long. Someone growing a plant in their backyard and foregoing over-the-counter pain medication, or making a tincture that helps fight cancer just might cut into Big Pharma profits, and we can’t have that. At least not until it can be strictly controlled by the very drug companies that specialize in delivering, for a hefty price, a barrage of drugs designed to, at the very least, incapacitate, and not actually cure anything.

So, here it is. The start of something big. Marijuana gone GMO:

Greenhouses lined with genetically modified marijuana sit on a mountainside just an hour ride from Cali, Colombia, where farmers say the enhanced plants are more powerful and profitable.

One greenhouse owner said she can sell the modified marijuana for 100,000 pesos ($54) per kilo (2.2 pounds), which is nearly 10 times more than the price she can get for ordinary marijuana.

Local authorities said the arrival of genetically modified seeds, which are imported from Europe and the United States have allowed “a bigger production and better quality at the same time”.

A police commander in the Cauca region where Cali is located, Carlos Rodriguez, said one of the modified varieties goes by the name, “Creepy”.

Another seed modified in The Netherlands is fetching a good price in the area, said a foreign researcher, who asked to remain anonymous. That version, well-known in Europe as “La Cominera”, is named for the Colombian village where it grows.

“La Cominera’s” higher value is due to its increased concentration of THC, the plant’s principal active ingredient, and the modified plant verges on an 18 percent concentration level, compared to a normal marijuana plant’s two to seven percent, said the researcher. (Yahoo News)

Coincidence that this is going on just as Big Pharma is busy patenting a Marijuana pill? Notice that the genetically modified seeds are imported from Europe, the Netherlands and the United States.

Despite the US government’s staunch opposition to medical cannabis farms in Oakland and elsewhere, the feds have begun licensing a whole lot of large legal pot grows throughout the country. But this weed is not for cannabis dispensaries and their patients; it’s for Big Pharma.

The Drug Enforcement Administration told Legalization Nation in an e-mail last week that 55 unnamed companies now hold licenses to grow cannabis in the United States, a fact that contradicts the widespread belief that there is only one legal pot farm in America, operated under the DEA for research purposes. It appears as if the upswing in federally approved pot farming is about feeding the need of pharmaceutical companies who want to produce a generic version of THC pill Marinol and at least one other cannabis-based pill for a wide variety of new uses. (Cannabis Culture)

Let’s see if I have this straight. Marijuana, natural, grown in your backyard: BAD! Marijuana farms, licensed by the feds and operated by the DEA for Big Pharma, and most likely genetically modified in a laboratory: GOOD! Hey, bubee, don’t you understand that this is bad??? So, off to jail you go for growing a healthy plant in your yard, but if you splice genes in a lab and grow a GM plant, changing that plant from something healthy to something designed to kill, patent it, and hand it over to the drug companies to push, then all the riches of the planet are yours, courtesy of your friendly neighborhood U.S. government.
