Bill Sardi: What would really happen if Ron Paul were as elected President?

What Would Really Happen If Ron Paul Were To Be Elected President?

by Bill Sardi

President Paul would immediately push for $1 trillion cut in federal spending (per year, not the $3 trillion that Democrats proposed over 10 years with half of that from increased taxes).

President Paul would have the authority as commander-and-chief to withdraw troops from overseas, within limits of treaty commitments which must be honored (US supplies defense for Saudi Arabia, many other nations). To the extent possible, the US would cease being the world’s policeman and plunderer of foreign economies (Iraq, Libya). The US would cease being a war economy. President Paul would also push to eradicate foreign aid which essentially is bribery, often to foreign despots who the US quietly supports because they hold a strong hand over their masses.

President Paul would have some empty chairs in his Cabinet – the Department of Commerce, Department of Education and other Cabinet positions would be eliminated. Civil service employees would be ushered into other government jobs.

President Paul would likely demand, using his bully-pulpit, a regular audit of the Federal Reserve (recall the FED pushed $13 trillion of short-term loans out the door in the world financial crisis without any oversight, which resulted in worldwide inflation and the unrest we now see in foreign countries – Egypt, Libya, etc – as a result of rising food prices.).

You probably don’t know that the Federal Reserve bank takes a 6% cut off the top of all interest it collects as middleman between the US Treasury Dept and local banks. (President John F Kennedy realized this, recognized it would result in huge federal debts in the future, which have now materialized, and cut the Federal Reserve entirely out of the equation in 1963 by directly issuing US Notes, not Federal Reserve currency, into the economy. Of course, shots fired in Dallas ceased that practice and all those US Notes were quietly withdrawn from circulation.) That cut for the central bankers would be eliminated in a Ron Paul Presidency.

President Paul would likely demand and personally oversee an audit of the gold at Ft. Knox. Wouldn’t you like to be there for that (live cameras please)? If the gold isn’t there, who absconded with it and where is it now? (Might not have to look far, it could be stashed in Federal Reserve bank vaults – recall, the Federal Reserve is not federal, it is a bunch of private banks who may have absconded with the nation’s gold supply).

[…]

Let’s recap – no income tax, the Federal government generates revenues by other means; no IRS forms to deal with; no need to send your kids off to phony wars in foreign theatres; no more cut off the top by the Federal Reserve; assurance there really is gold in Ft. Knox; gold-backed money like this nation once had before the banksters cut their own deal at Jekyll Island, South Carolina decades ago and Nixon took America off the gold standard; rising individual purchasing power as inflation is nixed (no need to ask the boss for a raise, your money will buy more), financial gains on your banked money instead of erosion of your wealth via inflation; your chance to own a home will greatly improve rather than the current situation where home ownership is now only a fading American pipe dream; and true reform of healthcare rather than manipulation by those with vested interests.

These are what a Ron Paul Presidency portends. This is Doctor Ron Paul’s prescription for the re-installation of sanity in American politics. Entrenched forces and crony capitalism are destroying America. You can fight back. Let the public’s voice be heard loud at the ballot box. Vote for Ron Paul so the 99% can have a real opportunity to become the 1%.

You can save your country, save your family, save your nation’s future – vote Ron Paul for President.

IRAQ WITHDRAWAL, LOOPHOLES AND ALL, MAY NOT BE PERMANENT
This week, after months of trying to convince the Iraqi government to let US troops stay, Obama suddenly announced that the conflict is over and that the US is withdrawing all military personnel from Iraq. Neither is technically true, and the way is being paved for a return at the slightest provocation, which may well be the long-anticipated strike on Iran by Israel.

Shock vaccine study reveals influenza vaccines only prevent the flu in 1.5 out of 100 adults
Story by Natural News

The “control group” of adults consisted of 13,095 non-vaccinated adults who were monitored to see if they caught influenza. Over 97% of them did not. Only 357 of them caught influenza, which means only 2.7% of these adults caught the flu in the first place. The “treatment group” consisted of adults who were vaccinated with a trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine. Out of this group, according to the study, only 1.2% [caught] the flu. The difference between these two groups is 1.5 people out of 100. …More
President Obama’s TSA betrays constitution
Story by Natural News

The constitution documents the “God given” rights we as citizens of the United States already have. It also clarifies the limited rights of the government in relation to its citizens’ rights. Dr. Coldwell reminds us that President Obama’s TSAs’ actions reverse the roll of government and the people in a way that betrays the constitution. The U.S. Government does not have tyrannical freedom to do what it pleases. Freedom from indecent touching and photography are ours already, we just need to remind the government who governs them. Therefore, “I do not consent to being illegally searched and touched.” …More

BP to resume drilling in Gulf of Mexico
Story by CNN Money

More than 550 days after the Deepwater Horizon explosion, BP is back in action in the Gulf of Mexico. The company announced Wednesday that it had earned its first permit to drill for oil in the Gulf since last year’s oil spill disaster, and says that a resumption of drilling is imminent. “The current situation there is we have a drilling rig on-site, and we intend to begin drilling the well as soon as operationally possible,” said Tom Mueller, a spokesman for BP. The drill site is located about 250 miles southwest of New Orleans, in the “Kaskida Field”, and plans call for a total of five wells. BP had already drilled one exploration well and one appraisal well at the site before the Deepwater Horizon spill and the subsequent moratorium on drilling in the Gulf. …More

A flat reception
Story by The Economist

Quick! What’s your income-tax liability under Mr Perry’s new flat tax? Is that more or less than your liability under the status-quo tax code? Mr Perry says “This simple 20% flat tax will allow Americans to file their taxes on a postcard”, saving loads of money in compliance cost. But it looks to me that Mr Perry has come up with an ingenious scheme to force millions of prudent Americans to do their taxes twice in order to determine which of the two tax codes is the lesser evil. That is not simplification. Anyway, given all the deductions the “flat” option retains, the part you can do on a postcard is going to require a postcard the size of one of those Publisher’s Clearing House checks Ed McMahon used to disburse to fainting widows. …More
Critics Furious As Border Agent Diaz Gets Two Years in Prison
Story by The New American

Diaz’ story, on the other hand, was consistent from the beginning, LEOAC said. Plus, he had already been cleared of wrongdoing by the Office of Professional Responsibility and the Inspector General. The court and the prosecutor went ahead with the case anyway. And pictures proving that the drug smuggler did not suffer any arrest-related injuries were sealed during the trial. After being granted immunity by the federal government, the illegal immigrant even admitted during the first trial that he had lied to the grand jury. Despite all of that, following a mistrial, Diaz was convicted. And on October 20, he was sentenced to 24 months in prison. Incredibly, the judge even asked Diaz to apologize to the drug smuggler and his fellow officers. …More

Flu Vaccine Not Working – - CDC Admits. What Are Your Options?
Story by Dr. Mercola

Yesterday I also received an email from a newsletter subscriber that had written the CDC with my warnings about the flu vaccine and they were given the following information: “Phenol and Thimerosal (mercury) are preservatives that kill off contaminants in the vaccine, and aluminum is added to some vaccines to improve the immune system’s response to the antigen, which can be so small that our immune system would not even identify the foreign substance on its own. Aluminum is the most abundant element in the Earth’s crust and is present in air, food, and water. Quantity in vaccines is roughly equal to infant formula.” It is almost laughable, if it weren’t seriously harming people, that the CDC could continue to state that thimerosal is not harmful when they issued a warning to remove it from vaccines over four years ago. And to describe aluminum as not harmful because it is abundant in the earth and present in infant formula is malicious nonsense. The CDC implies that we should consider aluminum in our trace mineral supplements. But don’t you find it curious that aluminum is so abundant in the earth but it has not yet been found to be useful for any biological systems? …More

Harper government has long-gun registry in its sights

Loose ends in Libya
Story by Tehran Times

NATO originally said they would disengage their forces as soon as the regime fell. However, new missions are now being defined for foreign forces in the new system. This will have serious repercussions for the young revolution since the foreign powers will seek to establish new military bases in North Africa, with the goal of gaining more control over developments in the Middle East and North Africa. And the presence of foreign troops in Libya would deal a huge blow to the independence and sovereignty of the country. Western corporations are also looking to get a piece of the pie in the new system. The Libyan National Transitional Council has announced that that they are still not in a position to sign international economic agreements in the name of the Libyan nation as their legitimate representatives, but Western corporations seeking to secure huge oil contracts will continue applying pressure on the NTC to compel them to do so. …More

Gaddafi was still alive when he was captured hiding in a storm drain outside his hometown of Sirte, but he already had blood streaming down the side of his face and a wound close to his left ear very shortly after he had been seized. …More

Occupy Liberty Street! (The Federal Reserve Bank of New York)
Story by Gary North on Lew Rockwell

The phrase “Wall Street” is a representative of the financial community. The only sensible reason for occupying Wall Street is for symbolic purposes. You want to call the public’s attention to the problem. What is the problem? I contend that the people occupying Wall Street do not understand the problem. If they did, they would be forming picket lines in front of the New York Federal Reserve bank at 33 Liberty Street. That is where the problem began in 1914. That is where the problem will be solved. …More
Withdrawal of US Troops From Iraq Highly Suspect
Story by Infowars.com

Possible Scenarios The US is at least peddling the illusion it is clearing out its holdings in Iraq, leaving a symbolic force for a reason – a reason that has to do with a final gambit to be played against Iran, the last domino to fall in the US-contrived “Arab Spring.” These are two possible scenarios: 1. Leave a small symbolic force for the Iranians to attack in Iraq after a “unilateral” Israeli airstrike. Whatever Iran decides to do, it may not be able to do sustainably, but will do viciously in the opening phases. By leaving a symbolic force in Iraq, the US can garner the necessary sympathy and anger politically at home to launch a wider operation against Iran in “retaliation.” 2. Feign as if the US is disengaging from the Middle East so when a false flag terror attack or other provocation is perpetrated against the US, it will look like an egregious act of war by Iran. While a shrinking US presence in the Middle East would logically engender even more patience in Tehran, the script writers of the latest DEA-Saudi bomb plot took special care to ensure the “Iran has become bolder” talking-point made it repetitively on air and into the minds of unsuspecting Americans. …More
Forest ‘roadless rule’: environmental victory or US job-killer?
Story by CSM

Given the ruling, eyes are now likely to turn to a Republican-sponsored bill in the House that aims to gut the “roadless rule.” Even if unsuccessful, such a bill could force Democrats to defend a rule that conservatives argue is antithetical to a strong economy. The stakes have been most evident in Colorado, where critics of a federal forest road ban say it fails to take into account local environmental and business dynamics. Since former president Bill Clinton signed the rule shortly before leaving office, Colorado has lost nearly 2 million acres of trees to a bark-beetle infestation, leaving nearby areas vulnerable to wildfires if new roads can’t be cut. Federal enforcement of the rule means “management agencies will be hamstrung from providing much needed access to manage these lands in a safe and responsible manner,” US Rep. Scott Tipton (R) of Colorado told the Colorado Independent in August. …More

Secretariats last race – Victory for the greatest horse in modern times

Uploaded by on Oct 6, 2010

[Secretariat] was an American Thoroughbred racehorse, who in 1973 became the first U.S. Triple Crown champion in twenty-five years, setting new race records in two of the three events in the Series—the Kentucky Derby (1:59 2/5), and the Belmont Stakes (2:24)—records that still stand today.

Secretariat was sired by Bold Ruler (a grandson of Nearco) and foaled to Somethingroyal. He was foaled at Meadow Farm in Caroline County, Virginia. Like the equally famous horse Man o’ War, Secretariat was a large chestnut colt and was given the same nickname, “Big Red.”

Owned by Penny Chenery (aka Penny Tweedy), he was trained by Lucien Laurin and mainly ridden by fellow Canadian jockey Ron Turcotte, along with apprentice jockey Paul Feliciano (first two races), and veteran Eddie Maple (last race). He raced in Penny Chenery’s Meadow Stable’s blue and white checkered colors and his groom was Eddie Sweat.

The story of Secretariat began with the toss of a coin in 1968 between Christopher Chenery of Meadow Stables and Ogden Phipps of Wheatley Stable. The idea of a coin toss came from Phipps, the owner of Bold Ruler, and Bull Hancock of Claiborne Farms as a way to get the very best mares for Bold Ruler, and when the toss went their way, to add well-bred fillies to their own broodmare band. Bold Ruler was considered one of the important stallions of his time. He had a fine balance between speed and stamina, having had a frontrunning style but the stamina to go 1 1/4 miles; he finished 3rd in the 1957 Kentucky Derby. After his racing career, Bold Ruler was retired to Claiborne Farms but still was controlled by the Phipps family. This meant he would be bred to mainly Phipps’ mares and not many of his offspring would find their way to the auction ring. Phipps and Hancock agreed to forgo a stud fee for Bold Ruler in exchange for getting to keep one of two foals produced by the mare he bred in successive seasons or two mares he bred in the same season. Who obtained which foal or even received first pick would be decided by a flip of a coin.

In 1968, Chenery sent two mares named Hasty Matelda and Somethingroyal to Bold Ruler, and in 1969, a colt and filly were the result. In 1969, Hasty Matelda was replaced by Cicada, but she did not conceive. Only one foal resulted between Bold Ruler and Somethingroyal. As stated in the original agreement, the winner of the coin toss could pick the foal he wanted but could only take one, while the loser would get the other two. Both parties assumed Somethingroyal would deliver a healthy foal in the spring of 1970. The coin toss between Penny Chenery and Ogden Phipps was held in the fall of 1969 in the office of New York Racing Association Chairman Alfred Vanderbilt II, with Hancock as witness. Phipps won the toss and took the weanling filly out of Somethingroyal, leaving Chenery with the colt out of Hasty Matelda and the unborn foal of Somethingroyal.

On March 30, at 12:10 a.m., Somethingroyal foaled a bright red chestnut colt with three white socks and a star with a narrow blaze. By the time the colt was a yearling, he was still unnamed. Meadow Stables’ secretary, Elizabeth Ham, had submitted 10 names to the Jockey Club, all of which were denied for various reasons. Approval finally came with the 11th submission, a name Ham herself picked from a previous career association, Secretariat.

Secretariat’s owner entered into a syndication deal that precluded the horse racing past age three. Accordingly, Secretariat’s last race was against older horses in the Canadian International Stakes at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, Canada. It was the second time in his career that he raced on grass and the first time he was asked to go one and five-eighths miles (just a furlong further than he’d already run twice that year). Secretariat won with another impressive performance. With Ron Turcotte out with a five-day suspension, Eddie Maple rode Secretariat to victory by 6 1/2 lengths.

Altogether, Secretariat won 16 of his 21 career races, with three seconds and one third, for in-the-money finishes in 20 of 21 starts, and total earnings of $1,316,808.

At age three, Secretariat was again named Horse of the Year, as well as winning Eclipse Awards as the American Champion Three-Year-Old Male Horse and the American Champion Male Turf Horse.

I watched the movie “Secretariat” last night. WoW, am I encouraged!!!!!!!

This true story isn’t mainly about a great horse. It’s about a great, “stubborn” woman who wouldn’t give up despite all of the naysayers.

I wasn’t familiar with the lead actress, but Diane Lane is ABSOLUTELY INSPIRING in this nearly perfect movie that I could recommend to everyone in that it’s also clean — which is why Lane wouldn’t get the Oscar she deserved. It also has a disqualifying gospel song.

I had a feeling it would be good, because ‘Secretariat’ was directed by Randall *Wallace*, who wrote the screenplay for one of my all-time favorite movies, ‘Braveheart,’ the story of Scottish freedom-fighter, William *Wallace* (Randall believes they’re probably related).

If you need encouragement to pursue EXCELLENCE no matter the odds, and no matter what might now lie ahead …

Drones : Killing For Sport? — Whenever I hear yet another news report of a military drone taking out some ALLEGED THREAT to the United States my blood begins to boil in both SHAME and INDIGNATION.

Drones : Killing For Sport?

R.F. Goggin, Contributing Writer
Activist Post

Each time that I hear of a new drone strike by America in some distant foreign land, by some video game player wielding a computer joystick in Nevada, I get an uncomfortable feeling in the pit of my soul that my country has committed a cowardly act of murder, simply because it’s virtually risk-free and so easy to do so.

…according to the aforementioned report that I have cited, there are credible reports of more than 150 children having their lives snuffed out to date, via American military drones. …

Whenever it is that I hear yet another news report of a military drone taking out some alleged threat to the United States – my blood begins to boil in both shame and indignation. This, simply because I am all but sure there are officers or personnel in some military control room thousands of miles away from the attack; not to mention over-zealous secret servants in Washington, all slapping one another on the back as though they have all actually done something heroic to defend their county. Yet from this layman’s perspective, I don’t much find using a robot to sneak up on an enemy and perform an assassination much to be proud of. To the contrary, isn’t a drone mission an act of terror in itself? And if so, doesn’t it therefore seem logical to ask oneself if America has become a nation which hunts down people whom we suspect may do us harm, regardless of any significant capacity for them to do so, just for sport?

Palmer to discontinue adding fluoride in water

PALMER, Alaska – The town of Palmer will discontinue the practice of adding fluoride to city water.

The Palmer City Council voted 6-1 Tuesday to prohibit fluoridation in the public water supply, effective immediately. Fluoride in the town of 6,000 northeast of Anchorage has been added to the water since 1967.

Palmer City Clerk Janette Bower said Friday the council asked for an investigation in response to citizen concerns about the possible health effects of fluoridation.

Alaska passes ordinance to end its water fluoridation program

Friday, October 28, 2011 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) For 44 years, the town of Palmer, Ak., has been fluoridating its water supply, which is sourced from natural wells in the area. But thanks to concerted public outcry and growing momentum in Alaska and elsewhere to end the practice, the Palmer City Council has officially passed an ordinance repealing the town’s water fluoridation mandate.

Both Fairbanks and Juneau, which represent the second and third most populous cities in Alaska, respectively, recently decided to end their water fluoridation programs after some members of special fluoride task forces found water fluoridation to be a questionable and unsubstantiated “public health” protocol. But what really pushed the decision over the edge in both cases was the surge of public opposition.

Following in these two cities footsteps, Palmer city officials recently decided to go the same route by heeding petitions from the public against the addition of fluoride in water as well. And by doing so, the town will now save thousands of dollars a year in material, labor, and maintenance costs associated with dripping the toxic chemical into the water supply.

“In response to concerns about the risks of fluoride in the Palmer public water supply, the City Council directed the administration to investigate the issue and in response to the investigation, it has determined that an ordinance be introduced ending the addition of fluoride to the public water supply,” says the summary statement on the passage of the ordinance.

“The water fluoridation concerns include moral, ethical, safety, and efficacy aspects of adding fluoride to the public water supplies.”

The report cites the fact that 99 percent of western continental Europe, as well as most of the rest of the world, has either ended or long-rejected water fluoridation for some of the very same reasons. Only five percent of the world’s population, after all, is exposed to artificially fluoridated water — and 50 percent of such people live in North America, and primarily in the US.

Other cities and counties that have recently ended their water fluoridation programs include Pinellas County, Fla. (Tampa area), College Station, Tex., Slave Lake, Alberta, Can., Hohenwald, Tenn., Pottstown, Penn., and Spring Hill, Tenn. (http://www.fluoridealert.org/commun…).
