More ‘Hate Crime’ Hoaxes Debunked By Law Enforcement

A female student in Ohio is being charged after filing a false police report alleging that she was attacked by Donald Trump supporters, and liberal students in Massachusetts are facing disciplinary action after creating Ku Klux Klan hoax vandalism. The day after the election, 24-year-old Eleesha Long, a black student at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, claimed that she was attacked by three white men wearing Trump hats who threw rocks at her and called her a racial slur. She immediately took to Facebook about the attack, and it went rapidly viral. She described in detail what each man was wearing during the alleged “hate crime,” and what happened to her — but never filed a police report. Eventually, an officer from her school took her to the police station to file a report. Throughout the police investigation, Long’s story changed multiple times and her Facebook and Verizon […] Read More

Ron Paul: Fifteen Years into the Afghan War, Do Americans Know the Truth?

US soldiers guarding poppy fields Last week marked the fifteenth anniversary of the US invasion of Afghanistan, the longest war in US history. There weren’t any victory parades or photo-ops with Afghanistan’s post-liberation leaders. That is because the war is ongoing. In fact, 15 years after launching a war against Afghanistan’s Taliban government in retaliation for an attack by Saudi-backed al-Qaeda, the US-backed forces are steadily losing territory back to the Taliban. What President Obama called “the good war” before took office in 2008, has become the “forgotten war” some eight years later. How many Americans know that we still have nearly 10,000 US troops in Afghanistan? Do any Americans know that the Taliban was never defeated, but now holds more ground in Afghanistan than at any point since 2001? Do they know the Taliban overran the provincial capital of Kunduz last week for a second time in a […] Read More

2015: Will the Fed Hesitate? “Everything is Too Vulnerable” for Rate Change, Says Ron Paul

The system is teetering on edge, and nearly everyone in the financial sector is waiting for one decision – will the Fed finally raise rates? Ron Paul has made a bold prediction that the Federal Reserve likely will NOT raise interest rates, something which would have enormous consequences in the market, because it is hesitant to do so with so many negative risk factors the market already faces. Fed Chair Janet Yellen – and most in the financial sector – know how much is impinging upon the possible decision to raise rates after years and years of quantitative easing have pushed the limits of stimulating the economy. According to CNBC: By Paul’s reasoning, the Fed is too scared to raise interest rates in the middle of an already weak recovery and risk sending the U.S. economy back into recession, or worse… The Fed chief “does not want to be […] Read More

Ron Paul: “All Wars Paid For Through Debasing the Currency”

And at some point, all empires crumble on their own excess, stretched to the breaking point by over-extending a military industrial complex with sophisticated equipment, hundreds of bases in as many countries, and never-ending wars that wrack up mind boggling levels of debt. This cost has been magnified by the relationship it shares with the money system, who have common owners and shareholders behind the scenes. As the hidden costs of war and the enormity of the black budget swell to record levels, the true total of its price comes in the form of the distortion it has caused in other dimensions of life; the numbers have been so thoroughly fudged for so long now, as Wall Street banks offset laundering activities and indulge in derivatives and quasi-official market rigging, the Federal Reserve policy holds the noble lie together. Ron Paul told RT: Seen from the proper angle, the […] Read More

Signs Of Financial Turmoil Are Brewing In Europe, China And The United States

Submitted by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog, As we move toward the second half of 2015, signs of financial turmoil are appearing all over the globe.  In Greece, a full blown bank run is happening right now.  Approximately 2 billion euros were pulled out of Greek banks in just the past three days, Barclays says that capital controls are “imminent” unless a debt deal is struck, and there are reports that preparations are being made for a “bank holiday” in Greece.  Meanwhile, Chinese stocks are absolutely crashing.  The Shanghai Composite Index was down more than 13 percent this week alone.  That was the largest one week decline since the collapse of Lehman Brothers.  In the U.S., stocks aren’t crashing yet, but we just witnessed one of the largest one week outflows of capital from the bond markets that we have ever witnessed.  Slowly but surely, we are […] Read More

Movement to Declassify 9/11 Information Gathers Momentum … 9/11 Commission Chairs and Congressmen Call for Declassification

The 9/11 Commission Co-Chairs – Lee Hamilton and Thomas Kean – have called for the 28-page section of the 9/11 Commission Report which is classified to be declassified. Kean said that 60-70% of what was classified shouldn’t have been classified in the first place: Congressman Thomas Massie read the 28 classified pages of the Joint Intelligence Committee Inquiry into 9/11 (the joint Senate and House investigation into 9/11) and immediately called for them to be released to the public: A bipartisan bill – introduced by congressmen Walter B. Jones (Republican from North Carolina) and Stephen Lynch (Democrat from Massachusetts) – would declassify the 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry which implicate the Saudi government. Former Congressman Ron Paul is also demanding the 28 pages be declassified: The Co-Chair of the congressional investigation into 9/11 – Bob Graham – and 9/11 Commissioner and former Senator Bob Kerrey are calling for […] Read More

Elizabeth Warren – The Quiet Revolutionary Who Could Challenge Hillary Clinton in Democrats' 2016 Race

Senator’s tough stance against Wall Street is attracting voters on the left who are disenchanted with the party establishment. Not many political “rock stars” inspire audience members to knit, but, even by Washington’s sedate standards, the darling of America’s new left is a quiet revolutionary. Senator Elizabeth Warren, a former Harvard professor turned Wall Street scourge, is one of a clutch of unlikely radicals giving hope to those disenchanted with mainstream Democrats. Hours before a rare public appearance last week, one of the largest rooms in Congress begins slowly filling up with an odd mix of groupies: policy wonks, finance geeks, Occupy activists, and, yes, the type of political conference attendee who brings their knitting in. Warren proceeds to calmly recite numbers that could inspire even librarians to storm a few barricades. The Wall Street crash has cost the US economy $14tn, she says, but its top institutions are 30% […] Read More

2006: SILENCING THE PEOPLE & 911

By: Devvy Kidd October 2, 2006 2006 – NewsWithViews.com   “Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.” — James Madison, 4th president, known as “Father” of the U.S. Constitution This past week we saw the traitorous, yes, traitorous Republicans pass new legislation to protect their backsides and Bush’s from being charged with war crimes. To say this latest move by Congress is beyond any horror most of us hardened warriors said wouldn’t happen, is the understatement of the century, i.e.: “The compromise legislation, which is racing toward the White House, authorizes the president to seize American citizens as enemy combatants, even if they have never left the United States. And once thrown into military prison, they cannot expect a trial by their peers or any other […] Read More
