US: Federal judge orders FDA to revoke approval for antibiotics added to animal feed unless drug makers can prove the antibiotics are safe to humans when meat products are eaten. [Pathetic, isn't it, that a judge has to order the FDA to protect public health.]NaturalSociety 2012 Mar 23 (Cached)
Dallas Federal-Reserve President calls for ending the “too big to fail” philosophy which, presumably, means he favors allowing the big banks to go out of business rather than bailing them out with taxpayer money. [It is hard to tell from his statement if he really is a champion of free-enterprise capitalism or merely using free-market rhetoric to placate the Fed's critics while only cosmetic changes are contemplated. Since he has been a loyal servant of the banking cartel for 30 years, it is unlikely that he would ever challenge the concept of fiat money.] Time 2012 Mar 22 (Cached)
Monsanto and Dow Chemical publish a children’s activity book full of propaganda about the so-called virtues of genetically modified food. [Here is the disinformation that is intended to be taught in our schools.] NaturalSociety 2012 Mar 22 (Cached)
Obama issues an executive order that, essentially, establishes martial law. [It places all resources and infrastructure, including food, water, energy, oil, transportation, and human labor under federal control. Citizens can be drafted into forced labor at any time. The government does not need a declared emergency or crisis to exercise this power. It merely has to say that it is for national defense.] HuffPost 2012 Mar 21 (Cached)
The US Supreme Court rules that the EPA must provide a process for property owners to challenge the agency’s injunctions. [While this is viewed as a victory for property owners, it merely establishes the right to appeal. There is a long way to go before the overreaching power of the EPA is controlled, and that task belongs to Congress.] Fox News 2012 Mar 21 (Cached)
Health authorities admit that the 2009 H1N1 flu ‘pandemic’ was a false alarm. Not only was it mild, but many of those who received the vaccine suffered serious side effects. [Governments agreed to absolve the vaccine makers of responsibility for any injuries, so the taxpayers were left holding the bag as usual.]Orthomolecular 2012 Mar 20 (Cached)
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke says that putting money on the gold standard would handicap the government’s ability to address economic conditions. [He is right, which is one of the advantages of the gold standard. It is not the government's role to address economic conditions. Doing so is the primary reason the economy now is in a tailspin. The free market is the only force that can create a robust economy. Bernanke works for a banking cartel that derives great profits from fiat money. Those profits would be drastically reduced under the gold standard because banks could not collect interest on money they create out of nothing. They would need real deposits from their customers. Imagine that!] Reuters 2012 Mar 20 (Cached)
Ron Paul on the Tonight Show tells Jay Leno that the Republican party could have a ‘brokered convention’ which means, if Romney fails to get 1144 delegates on the first vote, the delegates that are committed to Romney will be free to vote their consciences and choose Ron Paul.

Sweden is on track to become the first nation to eliminate cash – to reduce crime, of course. [With cash accounting for only 3% of the nation's transactions, theft of currency is down, but theft by credit-card fraud is up. A cashless society removes privacy and enables governments to monitor everything.]

US: Kony 2012, the pro-war propaganda film that went viral on the Internet last week, is under fire for disinformation about Uganda. The film’s creator recently was arrested and taken to a mental ward for running naked through the streets and shouting obscenities. DailyMail 2012 Mar 19 (Cached)
US Attorney General Eric Holder, in a 1995 video, called for “brainwashing” people into supporting gun control. This is further evidence that the ‘Fast and Furious’ gunrunning campaign, under Holder’s jurisdiction, was designed to create a gun-related crime wave to “brainwash” Americans into accepting more gun control. [It's the technique of convincing people to accept your solution to a problem that you, yourself, created. Collectivist governments do that all the time.] Breitbart 2012 Mar 19 (Cached)
Israel agrees that Iran does not have nuclear weapons and has not even decided that it wants them. Nevertheless, Israel is still advocating a pre-emptive strike to knock out Iran’s nuclear facilities to ensure that they don’t follow a different course in the future. Yahoo 2012 Mar 18 (Cached)
Brazilian authorities bar 17 Chevron and Transocean executives from leaving the country while considering criminal charges against them for an oil spill that was much smaller than the BP Oil spill in the Gulf. [It remains to be seen if this is a serious attempt to hold corporate executives personally responsible for their decisions or merely a ploy to obtain a large cash settlement from the corporations. Let's hope for a return of personal responsibility instead of business as usual.] CNN 2012 Mar 18 (Cached)
Tennessee House of Representatives denounces UN Agenda-21 and so-called Sustainable Development in a resolution that rejects communism, wealth redistribution, and forced abortions. [Although this is merely a resolution with no binding effect on the state, it is a good first step to raise awareness. Existing Agenda-21 mandates need to be abolished.]

CIA Director Petraeus says that computer chips inside home appliances and gadgets increasingly are being connected to the Internet. They will monitor behavior without having to plant ‘bugs’ in homes or cars. People will plant them themselves when they acquire the devices. [That's one of the intended uses of 'smart meters' from utility companies.]

Kony 2012 is a war propaganda movement funded by globalist interests in order to raise public enthusiasm for invading Uganda and taking over her rich oil resources. [War is being packaged as peace, straight out of the book 1984.]

Reports and commentaries that look beyond the news to identify historical facts and trends that must be understood to place the news into perspective. This is our “think-tank” section that makes it possible to anticipate future events.
The rising price of oil is explained. It is NOT that prices are manipulated, that demand is increasing, or that supplies are decreasing, or that stockpiles are expanding in anticipation of a new war in the Middle East. [Hint: it has something to do with expansion of the money supply.] Alt-Market 2012 Mar 23 (Cached)
This documentary tells the story of Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who developed a treatment for cancer that produced thousands of recoveries for patients who had been given up by orthodox medicine. [It also shows how the federal government has harassed him and continues to try to close down his clinic. Watch the full movie here.] Vimeo posted 2012 Mar 16
UN’s ‘Covenant on Environment and Development’ is a proposed treaty designed to place control over all human activities and land use into the hands of UN bureaucrats – in the name of protecting the environment, of course. [It is an attempt to put legal force behind the UN's Agenda 21, which is a blueprint for global collectivism. You should know about this and then support a candidate for federal office who will pledge to oppose it in its entirety.] PPJ Gazette 2012 Mar 14 (Cached)
‘Kony 2012′ is a video that went viral with almost 80 million hits in 24 hours. It’s about a crusade to stop Joseph Kony, a Uganda warlord who kidnaps children and forces the boys into his army to commit atrocities and the girls into sex slavery. The producer of the video wants governments to launch a military action to kill or capture Kony and bring him to trial at the UN International Court of Justice. The plan is well thought out, and the movement is rapidly growing. [Most people will enthusiastically approve of this plan. However, to stir the pot a bit, we invite your comments on these questions:
(1) Should state military forces be used for this mission or should the soldiers and 'advisors' be strictly volunteers?
(2) If your answer is that it's OK to order men into combat for purposes other than national defense, what is the source of the authority to do so? You will not find it in the US Constitution or in The Creed of Freedom.
(3) If you believe that such missions are a proper function of the state, would you object to launching hundreds of similar missions around the world wherever warlords or cruel rebel leaders are found?
(4) If it could be shown that certain 'respectable' leaders of member nations at the UN also are responsible for crimes against humanity (such as in false-flag operations and aggressive wars for hidden agendas, killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people), would you also approve of states sending in commando-like teams to assassinate those leaders? Send your thoughts on any of these questions here. Only those under 200 words can be published.] YouTube posted 2012 Mar 13
This analysis of the video Kony 2012 illustrates the techniques used to promote US invasions into other countries. Any student of modern propaganda techniques, especially the use of Internet social networks, should study this carefully.
