Rand's simple and simplistic idea is that scientists, inventors, or architects cannot produce without the context of absolute freedom, either political (undefined) or economical. Individual rights eventually under ALL systems transform, and most often degrade. For instance, there is no such thing as a democracy in modern terms, and anyone who has ever had 5th grade civics knows this. There is no democracy on earth, and Ayn Rand should have known that if she knew anything!
3/4/13 - In his first television interview since losing the 2012 presidential election, Mitt Romney told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday how much it "kills" him not to be in the White House, "doing what needs to be done" during Washington's fight over the sequester. Judging from his Talking Points Memo segment Monday night, it's also killing Bill O'Reilly. O'Reilly began by comparing President Obama's leadership on the sequester to that of Abraham Lincoln, arguing that Lincoln would never have let the sequester happen. But he then turned his attention to the president's most recent political rival, saying, "If Mitt Romney had defeated President Obama, we wouldn't be in this mess." As evidence, he showed a clip from Romney's Fox interview. Romney was incredulous in his interview Sunday about the president's seeming inflexibility on the spending cuts, indicating that perhaps it was more important for Obama to "show pain" and blame it on Republicans than to actually solve the budget issues. O'Reilly wholeheartedly agreed with Romney, saying all the president cares about it "raising taxes" and "redistributing income," "everything else be damned." He also argued that the media is defending Obama's position, pointing to House Speaker John Boehner's interview with David Gregory on Meet The Press Sunday. But O'Reilly didn't put much more faith in Boehner or his Democratic counterpart Senator Harry Reid. He evidently sees a leader-less Washington that desperately needs the guiding hand of Mitt Romney to step in and fix everything. While no one is applauding Congress or the president for handling the sequester issue perfectly, isn't it far too easy for an outsider like Romney who has no more political stakes left in the fight to claim he has all of the answers?
Katherine Albrecht hosts the Alex Jones Show on this Monday, March 4 edition. Katherine talks with Adrian Salbuchi, an internationally-renowned Argentine author, political analyst, speaker and radio and television commentator, and Lenore Skenazy, a columnist, author, and reality show host who gained national notoriety when she let her then-9-year-old son take the New York City Subway home alone. Katherine Albrecht is the founder of Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering and hosts a radio GCN Radio network Monday through Friday and Saturday.
Judge Napolitano argues that the government makes an economic mistake when it raises taxes too high "because people that are able to control their income will defer it or receive the income in other ways, end up earning less and paying the government less." He continued, "So, not only are the government's tax revenues down, but the economic activity generated by that wealth is down." "They just don't understand the sort of basic Economics 101," he concluded.
Webster Tarpley tells Press TV meddling by International Monetary Fund (IMF) will worsen the Egypt economy and spark more clashes across the north African country. At least 157 people have been injured in clashes between Egyptian police and demonstrators in the Suez Canal city of Port Said. The Egyptians launched the revolution against the pro-Israeli regime on January 25, 2011, which eventually brought an end to Mubarak's 30-year-long dictatorship on February 11, 2011. Egypt has been gripped by nationwide unrest in recent months. Protesters want Morsi to pursue the goals of the revolution that toppled former dictator Hosni Mubarak in 2011. Press TV has conducted an interview with Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley, author and historian (Washington), to further discuss the issue of clashes in Egypt.
3/4/13 - During his show Monday, Rush Limbaugh used President Obama's assertion that he's "not a dictator" from last Friday's press conference to question the president's real motives when it comes to running the country. Limbaugh argued that President Obama "has a chip on his shoulder" about the country, believing that its founding was "unjust" and "immoral" and that the Constitution is an "obstacle" to him achieving more power. "Every time I hear him say he's not a dictator, he doesn't complete the statement, 'but I wish I was.'" But, as Limbaugh explains, that's no reason to think he doesn't mean it.
He went on to say that "the 230-year-old engine of prosperity in this country is under assault" and that it's "undeniable" that the economy is on a downward trend. When Limbaugh really finds remarkable though, is that the American people seem to only want to blame Republicans in Congress for their economic troubles, not the president.
Limbaugh is certainly correct about this phenomenon when it comes to the sequester. A Washington Post-Pew poll released before Friday's budget deadline came and went found that 45 percent of Americans would blame congressional Republicans for failing to come to a deal wheras only 32 percent would blame President Obama.
You need to be writing your local officials and DEMANDING answers for this outlandish behavior. This combined with the NDAA is outright war on US citizens. You should be SCREAMING at the foot of your capitol about the stripping of our freedoms provided to us by the Constitution.
Leaked Document: Military Internment Camps in U.S to be Used for Political Dissidents : Internment camps for political dissidents in the U.S. aren't a conspiracy theory. The Department of Defense document entitled "INTERNMENT AND RESETTLEMENT OPERATIONS" or FM 3-39.40 proves this beyond a shadow of a doubt.
In President Barack Obama's State of the Union Address, the commander-in-chief mentioned how 3-D printing could change the future, and since then the technology has received a lot more attention. Last year, a gun developer showcased an AR-15 rifle that was made out of several printed parts, but the weapon was only capable of letting off six shots. RT's Meghan Lopez discusses how all that has changed.Downloadable 3-D printed gun capable of firing 600 rounds

It's the biggest economy in the world, but the US politicians running the country just can't get their act together. Barack Obama, the US president, and the Congress have failed to agree on how to control the budget. The move will lead to $85bn worth of automatic spending cuts, which is going to cost the American public and could even affect other economies around the world. Al Jazeera's Patty Culhane reports from Washington.
The "Black Nobility" are the oligarchic families of Venice and Genoa, Italy, who in the 12th century held the privileged trading rights (monopolies). The first of three crusades, from 1063 to 1123, established the power of the Venetian Black Nobility and solidified the power of the wealthy ruling class. The Black Nobility aristocracy achieved complete control over Venice in 1171, when the appointment of the Doge was transferred to what was known as the Great Council, which consisted of members of the commercial aristocracy. Venice has remained in their hands ever since, but the power and influence of the Venetian Black Nobility extends far beyond its borders, and today it is felt in every corner of the globe. In 1204 the oligarchic family parceled out feudal enclaves to their members, and from this epoch dates the great building-up of power and pressure until the government became a closed corporation of the leading Black Nobility families. The Black Nobility earned its title through dirty tricks, so when the population revolted against the monopolies in government, as anywhere else, the leaders of the uprising were quickly seized and brutally hanged. The Black Nobility uses secret assassinations, murder, blackmail, the bankrupting of opposing citizens or companies, kidnapping, rape and so on.
Just as Eisenhower assumed that "Atomic Bombs are Like Bullets" we are now being fed the illusion that "Wars are like Bullets" and that we should just tolerate warfare as the only solution to anything. War on Poverty, War on Healthcare, War on Everything. The global spending on weapons and military programs outweigh all programs that combat healthcare and poverty combined. The world we live in is on the brink of failure from a gregarious, domination driven, series of world powers. These are not hidden Cabals or secret societies, these are not communities hiding in the shadows of society: these are the plain sight actions of entire nations. The United States, North Korea, Russia, China, Israel and The United Kingdom and European Union are all engaging in gregarious social military operations that impoverish our culture and are keeping people on the brink of starvation and abject poverty. Moreover, more people are being slaughtered themselves in ever more frequent acts of mass violence, which have been increasing in frequency every year; a clear probe into the self-destruction of social bonds in modern culture and a premonition to the potential destruction of our civilization into an eventual state of barbarism. The economic situation, constantly being advertised as unstable, is causing bickering which will inevitably lead to high levels of warfare, fuelled by a greed that is never sated. Systematic destruction of the Earth's ecosystems and environment is also carried out by the global superpowers, causing continuous destruction from an unstable climate which they have inadvertently created and yet deny they have done so, leaving the blame in limbo and the consequences to a population of vulnerable people who have been told that city destroying tornadoes and flooding are normal and that they should just be good and suffer it rather than upset the apple cart. The political elite are so utterly dependant on their systems of economic, political, religious and social control that they will fight against the people to do so. Modern warfare does not fear nuclear weapons, the cold war is over. There are no "Superpowers". The Nations realise that the greatest destructive force to the traditional way of keeping people in line are the people themselves. As Dr. Kaku rightfully says: "The will of the people is more powerful than the hydrogen bomb". Governments know this and, as a result, frequently declare war on the people to keep them in line. Conservative Politicians, in both the US and European Union, are attempting to create "New Rome", an unstoppable global empire which will rule the earth using military overreach until our rights are devoured. That is why television has become insipidly stupid and trivialised, that is why media sharing websites are placated with advertisements and that is why we are constantly reminded that any for of work in today's economy (no matter how menial) is a virtue. The best way "Old Rome" could control the people was trough the Gladiator Games and nationalistic fervour that saw violence as good and criminals as demigods. Government's have plenty of money, and dish it out to keep the people happy enough to be allowed to work for the global domination driven elite and dumb enough to think that it is a gift given to them by their superiors. Warfare has changed from being between nations to being between the rich and the poor. The Global Economic Crisis of 2008 can be traced, piece by piece, by a combination of warfare funded by the United States and European Union against the Islamic Civilization and a form of warfare aimed at their own citizens which has resulted in a so-called "recession" which government's in The West want to make permanent. We are in the 3rd stage of empire: Military Overreach and Economic and Social Collapse. This is the Empire of the Rich versus the Democracy of the Public.
Host: George Noory
Guests: Father Nicholas Gruner, Jonathan Maberry
George Noory was joined by Father Nicholas Gruner, one of the world's leading authorities on traditional Roman Catholic doctrine and practice, for a discussion on the series of apparitions at Fatima, Portugal from May to October 1917, in which a number of predictions, requests and warnings were allegedly conveyed by the Virgin Mary to three shepherd children. He theorized that the Virgin Mary appeared to these children, rather than the Pope, because they would be more receptive to her messages and not be "confused by all sorts of theological ideas." Over the course of the evening, Gruner also shared his thoughts on the recent resignation of Pope Benedict, the upcoming papal conclave, and how it may connect to Fatima and other prophecies.
Regarding the infamous 'third secret' of Fatima which is believed to be a prophecy of dire future world events, Gruner recalled how Sister Lucia, the most famous of the three shepherd children, wrote down the first two secrets with ease but "she couldn't bring herself" to record the final part. After being given a formal order by the Church to write it, Lucia still agonized for three months trying to document it and, allegedly, only finished the job after she received another visit from the Virgin Mary, who told her that to do so was the 'will of God.' As to what the third secret foretells, Gruner noted that Lucia once claimed that it could be found in Chapters 8 to 12 of the Book of Revelations.
Although the Vatican claims to have released the complete text of the third secret in the year 2000, Gruner adamantly disputed this contention, saying that "the most important part, they left out." To that end, he put forward that there were two documents and that the Vatican only released the contents of the first part. He cited the testimony of Archibishop Capovilla, former secretary to Pope John XXIII, who "said there was another attachment" which was not a part of the official disclosure. On whether the events predicted in the third secret can be averted, Gruner suggested that if the Pope consecrated Russia, as prescribed in the second secret of Fatima, then perhaps it could prevent the troubling final events predicted.
In the first hour, author Jonathan Maberry talked about the historical roots of supernatural and paranormal creatures such as zombies, werewolves, and vampires. Having written about many of these entities for his books, Maberry observed that the werewolf is a "very complex and interesting monster that has a very real connection to our modern world." He detailed how the "werewolf trials," of which there were hundreds in the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries, contained no accounts of transformative powers but actually seemed "the first glimpse of what we now call serial killers." He also talked about how films have caused the perception of monsters to change over time, such as how Night of the Living Dead inadvertently caused flesh-eating monsters, known as ghouls, to become synonymous with zombies due to the film's advertising in Europe.
What happens in terms of creating wars is a mind-manipulation technique called "Problem-Reaction-Solution". And it works like this: Let's say you want to centralize power into fewer and fewer hands through the UN or NATO. If you did that openly and said, "This is what we want to do", there'd be a reaction against that. People would say, "Hey, this is a fascist state you want to create. We're not having this". But through this technique of Problem-Reaction-Solution, you can actually manipulate people to demand you do what you want to do anyway.
So it works like this: First of all, you create the problem, but you get someone else to be blamed for it. You then report that problem through the media in the way you want it reported - because the media is owned by the same people who own the banks, etc. You get the public to react to your problem by saying, "Something must be done; this can't go on; what are THEY going to do about it?" And at that point, THEY, who have covertly created the problem, and blamed someone else, who gleaned that reaction of Do Something, then offer the solution to the problems they have created.
So if you take the world wars for example - after the 1st world war, which the financial centers of London and Wall Street, etc, funded all sides, power on this planet was in fewer hands than ever before (via the League of Nations). After the 2nd world war, it was even fewer hands on the wheels of power. And as a result of the 2nd world war, we had the creation of the United Nations and NATO; and we had this great centralization of global power.
This "Problem-Reaction-Solution" technique is not just used to create and control wars, it can be applied to any situation where you want to produce a particular outcome. For example, this technique is currently being used to centralize power in the financial world. It can also be used to introduce new laws that restrict our civil liberties.
So, whenever you see some big news story - whether it be an alleged terrorist attack, a run on a currency, an accidental loss of people's personal data, an assertion that everyday people are causing "global warming", or an allegation that some poor country has developed nuclear weapons - the first question you need to ask yourself is this: "Who benefits from me believing this story?"
banks are allowed to lend 10 times the amount of cash they have at hand so technically at 8% interest they are making 80% interest. its a complete scam!
The Greatest Scam on Earth - The Money Scam! The Money Scam is hidden right out in the open, yet buried in complication and confusion. A retired banker describes simply, the world's Money Scam and the reason every country is now going bankrupt. Private bankers have stolen the money creation process, and whereas once our money was created by the governments, debt-free, it is now created out of thin air and issued as debt with interest charges. In today's banker controlled world, money = debt, debt = slavery and therefore money = slavery --- our monetary systems have become systems of enslavement. Money is created out of nothing, issued as debt, not enough money is created for the future interest payments and inflation steals our savings. The money creation process should be taken away from the banks and given to the governments who can create money debt-free, interest-free. This is how it used to be done and we needed no income taxes. Finally, it is explained what we should do to stop supporting the money scam.
