The late Aaron Russo starts off this full-length interview by saying, "What happened on 9/11 is a phony." He tells us what the people who run the world really have in store for us, whether we like it or not: one-world government. Since the interview a few years ago, that's become pretty obvious. But how did he know what a lot more people were oblivious to back then? He tells us.
Although most Americans these days say we're a democracy — we learned this in school and keep hearing it repeated in the mass media — Aaron says that our Founding Fathers were horrified at the thought.
Aaron's criticizing democracy? Doesn't he know that that's what our nation was founded on and the ultimate source of what many of us think of as our freedom and liberty? No it wasn't, and no it isn't, he says, and explains.
What does one-world government have to do with banks and the IRS? And how does that fit in with 9/11? Aaron tells us and explains how he came by his hard-won knowledge, a combination of the school of hard knocks and one crucial connection.
It's obvious from the big jump in the number of TV commercials that offer help with IRS problems, combined with what is reputed to be the most complex tax system in the world, and increasing tax rates along with decreasing income, that more and more Americans are running into trouble on their taxes.
Just how bad is it? The Washington Post says that
Since 1999, the IRS has increased annual lien filings by 550 percent, from 168,000 to last year's 1.1 million.
These people face homelessness, unemployability and the inability to obtain car insurance and credit cards at normal rates.
Unless you don't mind the government seeing you naked anytime it wants, says Judge Andrew Napolitano.
Gaddafi's murderous moves against his own people have put the chill of fear in them.
InfoWars says that even more invasive procedures are being contemplated for not only Australian air travelers, but all the rest of us too.
The story notes that body scanners are:
- Storing your naked image on Homeland Security databases
- Being made mandatory in court houses, federal buildings, etc.
- Emitting high levels of cancer-causing radiation — more than MRI's, destroying RDNA . . .

Senator Daniel Akaka (D-HI) announced today that he will serve the remaining 22 months of his term, but will not seek re-election next year.
Here is his full statement:
After months of thinking about my political future, I am announcing today that I have decided not to run for re-election in 2012. As many of you can imagine, it was a very difficult decision for me. However, I feel that the end of this Congress is the right time for me to step aside. It has been a great honor and privilege to serve the people of Hawaii. In 2006, the people of Hawaii gave me an opportunity to continue my service in the United States Senate and I fully intend to serve the last two years of my term in office.
At the end of this term, I will have served almost 22 years in the United States Senate and, prior to that, more than 13 years in the United States House of Representatives. I am proud of my accomplishments and my incredible staff in Washington, D.C. and Hawaii. They have exemplified the true meaning of being a public servant. They have worked tirelessly and without their dedication and loyalty, I could not have accomplished all that I did.
Millie and I will return to Hawaii at the end of this Congress and spend time with our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I would also like to spend time documenting my life and career, and serving as a mentor to future political leaders. I have always strived to serve the people with much love and aloha, never forgetting my humble beginnings, and it is my hope that they, too, will continue this tradition. We must never forget that we, as political leaders, work for the people of Hawaii and not the special interests.
I will always cherish the time I spent working in Washington, D.C., and extend my heartfelt thanks to the people of Hawaii for their confidence in me.
I would like to thank my family, my staff and my friends for their unwavering support. I would like to especially thank my wife, Millie, for her continuous support and encouragement. I could not have done it without her.
Finally, I would like to thank Senator Dan Inouye. I will forever be grateful for his friendship and steadfast support.
Will the U.S. quash it yet again?
Eric Margolis, Middle East specialist par excellence, is interviewed on the radio by Lew Rockwell.
The U.S., the putative shining light to the world of freedom and justice, is running roughshod over the people of the Middle East. The invasion of Iraq, which was begun because President George W. Bush said there were weapons of mass destruction there, has resulted in hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqis. There was no public outcry from Americans when the weapons of mass destruction that were given as the sole reason for our invasion of Iraq turned out to be nonexistent. The masses of dead Iraqis don't warrant so much as a shrug of the shoulders from the American public.
As the most powerful country in the world, with our war machine firmly in the Middle East, and rivers of our dollars flowing into such countries as Egypt and Israel whether we taxpayers like it or not, just how are we affecting the life of the average person in the Middle East? Eric Margolis explains.
