Insidious Path to Oligarchy

Evidence has mounted that the presidential election of 2000 was probably stolen by George W. Bush in the days leading up to and following voting on November 7, 2000. Now fifteen years later, there are three, whose fingerprints were all over the effort, now standing in positions of power – one has already been instrumental in changing the way elections are held, a process now more chaotic and less democratic. The other two are running for president as Republicans. Chief Justice John Roberts was in the thick of the contested election in Florida in 2000. He was a known and treasured legal mind for conservatives. He had served in Reagan’s Justice Department, and as Counsel to the President in the 1980s. He was a nominee of George H.W. Bush to the US Court of Appeals. When an automatic recount began on election night, kicked off by the closeness of […] Read More

2015: Coming for Your Funds: Supremes “Justify Seizure of Pension Funds to PROTECT Pensioners”

This article was originally published by Paul Joseph Watson at Infowars.com. Editor’s Note: Incredibly, and in direct defiance of any sane logic, a recent Supreme Court decision has justified “government seizure of private pension funds to protect pensioners,” according to famed economist Martin Armstrong. This unsettling decision puts 401ks and plenty of other funds in the crosshairs. How that can be considered consumer protection, or government shepherding is unclear, if not unfathomable. Nonetheless, the rationale is in place – so beware. It has long since been legalized for Wall Street equity firms to gamble away pensions – including public pensions for states like California – through derivatives, while it has long since been legalized for the Federal Reserve to literally grow paper on trees, hand out free candy to sugar addicts and make money (for those at the top) so cheap its practically free – all driving down the […] Read More

2015: Religious Broadcaster Warns Christians to ‘Prepare for Martyrdom’ If Supreme Court Legalizes Gay Marriage

Other anti-LGBT activists have warned the ruling could lead to the mass arrest of Christians in the US. A religious conservative broadcaster warned Christians to “prepare for martyrdom” if the U.S. Supreme Court sanctioned marriage equality. Sandy Rios, director of governmental affairs for the American Family Association and host of a daily radio program, did not specify what she meant by that – but her context was clear. “Homosexual marriage is going to bring about the tip of the spear of the battle we’re going to face,” Rios said Thursday to a gathering of religious right activists and pastors. Right Wing Watch reported that Rios warned participants that “your wives, your sisters, your children now are going to be forced to go into public restrooms and share them with men dressed as women.” “In Massachusetts, where homosexual marriage has been legal for 10 years, the stories would make the […] Read More

Why the Right-Wing Is as Obsessed with Brainwashing Your Kid as With Looting Social Security

We must teach our children US history accurately and inform the world about the essentials of human rights. Sure, the war on education helps Republican lawmakers destroy unions and slash government spending, but it’s our history of progressive change that makes Conservatives hate accurate depictions of our past. Just think about Social Security, The New Deal, freeing the slaves, or child labor laws… all represent great turning points in our nation that progressives made possible. The fact is, our entire history – from our revolution to healthcare reform – is filled with progressive accomplishments, and it’s hard to sell the Conservative brand to people who know that history. Many of the today’s biggest political issues, like our privacy rights, would not even be up for debate today had it not been for the attack on education. If more Americans had had a strong understanding of our history, George W. […] Read More

2013: Children Locked Up For Life: 10 Shockers About America’s Prison System

Twice as many people rot in prison for crack use than for violent crimes. Children are being locked up for life. What’s wrong with our criminal justice system? Even if we already know the statistic, hearing it is pretty chilling: one out of every 100 Americans is behind bars, by far the highest incarceration rate in the world. Things get even more terrifying when we look at the impact of the criminal justice system on particular marginalized communities. One in three African-American males born today will likely spend some time on the inside. With terms like the prison-industrial complex and the school-to-prison pipeline now part of our daily political lexicon, we know that things are bad. But exactly how bad are they? Here are 10 reasons why our criminal justice system is even more obscene than you thought. 1. Margin of error? A mere technicality to death penalty advocates. In case […] Read More

Things that are not in the U.S. Constitution

Some are true, some are not. This page will detail some of the things that people think are in the Constitution but are not.   Innocent until proven guilty First, it should be pointed out that if you did it, you’re guilty, no matter what. So you’re not innocent unless you’re truly innocent. However, our system presumes innocence, which means that legally speaking, even the obviously guilty are treated as though they are innocent, until they are proven otherwise. The concept of the presumption of innocence is one of the most basic in our system of justice. However, […] Read More

2003: FEDERAL INCOME TAX: PROOF OF CONSPIRACY

By: Alan Stang For many weeks, we have been looking at what we realistically might do to save our country from the totalitarian dictatorship that is rapidly suppressing it. We have seen that to have any hope of doing so we must recognize the cause: the conspiracy for world government. Presently, we are demonstrating why that recognition is so important, and we chose an issue for the purpose: the sodomite explosion. We chose that issue because it is so much in the news. We could just as well have chosen the federal income tax. A few days ago, the income tax was in the news again, or, rather, it should have been. It should have been banner headlines across the country – but it wasn’t. Because you are reading these profundities at Etherzone.com, you probably already know what I am talking about, but my guess is that few other […] Read More

2012: Supreme Court Guts Due Process Protection

Reader Walter passed along this distressing sighting from Chris Floyd’s blog. American civil liberties were gutted last week, and the media failed to take note of it. The development? If the president or one of his subordinates declares someone to be an “enemy combatant” (the 21st-century version of the “enemy of the state”) he is denied any protection of the law. So any trouble-maker (which means anyone) can be whisked away, incarcerated, tortured, “disappeared,” you name it. Floyd’s commentary: After hearing passionate arguments from the Obama Administration, the Supreme Court acquiesced to the president’s fervent request and, in a one-line ruling, let stand a lower court decision that declared torture an ordinary, expected consequence of military detention, while introducing a shocking new precedent for all future courts to follow: anyone who is arbitrarily declared a “suspected enemy combatant” by the president or his designated minions is no longer a […] Read More
