. . . we should look more closely at what the nature of business is, because I don't think Armand Hammer [a Jew] was alone in using the techniques of bribery and things that you wouldn't speak about in public [gross deception, conspiracy, amorality, etc.] to achieve an economic purpose. I think that he might be much more representative of a kind of business, especially a business that depends on government favor and government concession.
. . . this [Nuremberg Trial] staff is about 75% Jewish . . . the charge 'a war for the Jews' is still being made and in the post-war years it will be made again and again.

This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.
Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience.
Israel’s Prime Minister [Benjamin Netanyahu] is well-placed to explain to the U.S. Congress the alleged danger of a nuclear Iran. After all, it was Israel and its allies in Washington who fabricated this issue to begin with.
There are millions of Christians in America’s churches that couldn’t tell you what’s in the Bible to save their lives. They couldn’t quote the Ten Commandments; they couldn’t quote the Golden Rule; they couldn’t name Christ’s apostles; they couldn’t quote five verses of Scripture from memory if their lives depended on it.
In all ages the people of the world, equally with individuals, have accepted words for deeds, for THEY ARE CONTENT WITH A SHOW and rarely pause to note, in the public arena, whether promises are followed by performance.

MIT economist Jonathan Gruber’s factually impoverished testimony on Obamacare [before the House] didn’t get nearly the attention it should have, as congressional Democrats cleverly decided to release a report on CIA torture abuses on the same day.
Factually speaking, the CDC is a malicious, criminally-run anti-science quackery front group for the vaccine industry. As part of its criminal activity, it has long insisted that the vaccine preservative thimerosal is not tied to autism. But once-secret documents, now forced to be revealed by the CDC, prove the agency knew that thimerosal causes autism but deliberately hid that evidence from the public in exactly the same way the EPA hid the truth about lead poisoning of the public water supply in Flint, Michigan.
"A vaccine industry watchdog has now obtained CDC documents that show statistically significant risks of autism associated with the vaccine preservative," reports Health Advice, which also reports:
Dr. Hooker, a PhD scientist, worked with two members of Congress to craft the letter to the CDC that recently resulted in his obtaining long-awaited data from the CDC, the significance of which is historic. According to Hooker, the data on over 400,000 infants born between 1991 and 1997, which was analyzed by CDC epidemiologist Thomas Verstraeten, MD, "proves unequivocally that in 2000, CDC officials were informed internally of the very high risk of autism, non-organic sleep disorder and speech disorder associated with Thimerosal exposure."
In January, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon delivered a speech to the Security Council about, as he put it, violence “in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory,” noting that “Palestinian frustration is growing under the weight of a half century of occupation” and that “it is human nature to react to occupation.” His use of the word “occupation” was not remotely controversial because multiple U.N. Security Resolutions, such as 446 (adopted unanimously in 1979 with 3 abstentions), have long declared Israel the illegal “occupying power” in the West Bank and Gaza. Unsurprisingly, newspapers around the world – such as the Wall Street Journal, the Guardian, the BBC, the LA Times – routinely and flatly describe Israeli control of the West Bank and Gaza in their news articles as what it is: an occupation.
In fact, essentially the entire world recognizes the reality of Israeli occupation with the exception of a tiny sliver of extremists in Israel and the U.S. That’s why Chris Christie had to grovel in apology to GOP billionaire and Israel-devoted fanatic Sheldon Adelson when the New Jersey Governor neutrally described having seen the “occupied territories” during a trip he took to Israel. But other than among those zealots, the word is simply a fact, used without controversy under the mandates of international law, the institutions that apply it, and governments on every continent on the planet.
But not the New York Times. They are afraid to use the word. In a NYT article today by Jason Horowitz and Maggie Haberman on the imminent conflict over Israel and Palestine between Sanders-appointed and Clinton-appointed members of the Democratic Party Platform Committee, this grotesque use of scare quotes appears:
President Obama's transgender order is moving all right -- from the classroom to the courtroom! Thanks to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, the rocky road just got rockier for the administration trying to bully public schools and universities with its twisted agenda. Two weeks into the outrage caused by the Justice and Education Departments' order that districts open their locker rooms and showers to both genders, the nationwide outcry is only growing. Furious that the president would try to take students hostage to its radical agenda, dozens of local and state governments are fighting back.
This afternoon, in the shadow of the Austin Capitol, Paxton told the Obama administration that if it wanted to commandeer Texas's schools, he'd have to go through millions of Americans first. With the support of Governor Greg Abbott (R), Paxton made it official in a press conference this afternoon that Texas would be leading the charge with a major, multi-state lawsuit just filed against the federal government. Appalled by an executive overreach that puts every student at risk, 11 states have teamed up to fight the Obama administration.
Together with the Lone Star State, Alabama, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Tennessee, Arizona, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Utah, Georgia, and the governor of Maine are linking arms to stop this gross abuse of federal power. "[The Obama administration has] conspired to turn workplaces and educational settings across the country into laboratories for a massive social experiment, flouting the democratic process, and running roughshod over commonsense policies protecting children and basic privacy rights," the complaint reads. "Absent action in Congress, the states, or local communities, defendants cannot foist these radical changes on the nation."
Having successfully used the EU to conquer the Greek people by turning the Greek “leftwing” government into a pawn of Germany’s banks, Germany now finds the IMF in the way of its plan to loot Greece into oblivion .
The IMF’s rules prevent the organization from lending to countries that cannot repay the loan. The IMF has concluded on the basis of facts and analysis that Greece cannot repay. Therefore, the IMF is unwilling to lend Greece the money with which to repay the private banks.
The IMF says that Greece’s creditors, many of whom are not creditors but simply bought up Greek debt at a cheap price in hopes of profiting, must write off some of the Greek debt in order to lower the debt to an amount that the Greek economy can service.
The banks don’t want Greece to be able to service its debt, because the banks intend to use Greece’s inability to service the debt in order to loot Greece of its assets and resources and in order to roll back the social safety net put in place during the 20th century. Neoliberalism intends to reestablish feudalism—a few robber barons and many serfs: the One Percent and the 99 percent.
The way Germany sees it, the IMF is supposed to lend Greece the money with which to repay the private German banks. Then the IMF is to be repaid by forcing Greece to reduce or abolish old age pensions, reduce public services and employment, and use the revenues saved to repay the IMF.
As these amounts will be insufficient, additional austerity measures are imposed that require Greece to sell its national assets, such as public water companies and ports and protected Greek islands to foreign investors, principallly the banks themselves or their major clients.
So far the so-called “creditors” have only pledged to some form of debt relief, not yet decided, beginning in 2 years. By then the younger part of the Greek population will have emigrated and will have been replaced by immigrants fleeing Washington’s Middle Eastern and African wars who will have loaded up Greece’s unfunded welfare system.
In other words, Greece is being destroyed by the EU that it so foolishly joined and trusted. The same thing is happening to Portugal and is also underway in Spain and Italy. The looting has already devoured Ireland and Latvia (and a number of Latin American countries) and is underway in Ukraine.
The current newspaper headlines reporting an agreement being reached between the IMF and Germany about writing down the Greek debt to a level that could be serviced are false. No “creditor” has yet agreed to write off one cent of the debt. All that the IMF has been given by so-called “creditors” is unspecific “pledges” of an unspecified amount of debt writedown two years from now.
The newspaper headlines are nothing but fluff that provide cover for the IMF to succumb to presssure and violate its own rules. The cover lets the IMF say that a (future unspecified) debt writedown will enable Greece to service the remainder of its debt and, therefore, the IMF can lend Greece the money to pay the private banks.
In other words, the IMF is now another lawless Western institution whose charter means no more than the US Constitution or the word of the US government in Washington.
The media persists in calling the looting of Greece a “bailout.”
To call the looting of a country and its people a “bailout” is Orwellian. The brainwashing is so successful that even the media and politicians of looted Greece call the financial imperialism that Greece is suffering a “bailout.”
Everywhere in the Western world a variety of measures, both corporate and governmental, have resulted in the stagnation of income growth. In order to continue to report profits, mega-banks and global corporations have turned to looting. Social Security systems and public services–and in the US even the TSA airline security screening–are targeted for privatization, and indebtedness so accurately described by John Perkins in his book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, is used to set up entire countries to be looted.
We have entered the looting stage of capitalism. Desolation will be the result.
About HIRA: "The Hawaii Republican Assembly (HIRA) is the conservative standard-bearer for Republicans in Hawaii and the leading advocate for conservative solutions in the islands.
"We are not an official arm of the Republican Party of Hawaii (RPH).
"We are the conservative base of the Republican Party and an affiliated chapter of the National Federation of Republican Assemblies."
**** This weekend's one-day GOP state convention in Waipahu had its share of highlights and lowlights. Only 325 delegates out of an eligible 2,000 statewide bothered to show up for the convention. Not exactly a resurgence of Republicanism in the islands or a cause of concern for local Democrats. But, hey, a few dozen more people attended than the previous year and were all treated to some convention memories which will last a lifetime . . .
CLOSET DEMOCRAT FUKUMOTO EXPOSED AND BOOED RIGHT OFF THE STAGE
Probably the single most memorable incident during the convention was when RINO Beth Fukumoto was booed off stage by the overwhelming majority of convention goers. As Civil Beat reported, the progressive (i.e. liberal) GOP leader of all seven Republicans in Hawaii's State House of Representatives decided to allow delegates to ask her questions rather than giving a mundane report about what bills passed during the 2016 legislature.
Either Fukumoto mistakenly committed political suicide with her Q&A format, or this move was her premeditated and sneaky way of manufacturing a final justification for switching parties, as HIRA has previously reported Fukumoto as plotting. During the Q&A, several delegates addressed Fukumoto from microphone stands which her minions hurriedly placed on the convention floor. Virtually all of their questions pertained to her RINO political outlook and her closet Democrat qualities.
Eagle Forum chairman and founder Phyllis Schlafly is mobilizing the grassroots across America, asking them to help her shut down a coup attempt against her, led by several supporters of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), over her decision to back billionaire Donald Trump in the 2016 GOP presidential primary.
Schlafly says in a robo-call sent out to more than 123,000 conservatives nationwide, obtained by Breitbart News:
Hello, this is Phyllis Schlafly, founder and chairman of Eagle Forum. We’ve been fighting for conservative causes and against liberals for so many years. Unfortunately today, I find myself having to fight back against people who have sued Eagle Forum and dragged me into court. I’m fighting to protect what you and I have built over 40 years away from people who want to take over. They’ve even tried to seize Eagle Forum’s bank accounts. It’s very wrong.
Debates over the US government’s foreign and economic policies have recently taken a backseat to the debate over what bathroom transgender individuals should use. The two sides of the debate both believe that government has the legitimate authority to tell private businesses who they should allow to use their facilities. Few on either side of this debate defend the right of private property owners to decide for themselves who may and may not use their bathrooms.
Some say government must be involved in this issue in order to ensure that private businesses do not violate individual rights. Those who make this claim are accepting the idea that rights are no more than a gift from the government that can be revoked at the will and whim of legislators and bureaucrats. This argument turns rights from a shield protecting our liberties into a sword that can and will be used to increase government control of our lives.
Two weeks ago, the Department of Education waded into this debate by threatening to withhold federal funds from schools that do not allow transgender students to use the restroom of their choice. State and local officials around the country have promised to resist the Education Department’s new bathroom rules. However, given how addicted most state and local governments and school boards are to federal funds, it is likely that even most conservative state governments and school boards will eventually adopt the bathroom policies desired by federal bureaucrats.
Many of the conservatives who (correctly) denounce the Obama administration for trying to blackmail local schools either supported or were silent when a so-called conservative administration expanded the federal role in education via No Child Left Behind. These conservatives fail to realize that No Child Left Behind’s testing and other mandates are no different in principle from President Barack Obama’s bathroom mandates. Both use money stolen from the people and sent back to the states to force states to change their policies according to federal commands. Both are equally unconstitutional. Conservatives who want to defend local schools from federal bureaucrats must work to repeal, not reform, the Department of Education.
One positive result from this latest controversy is that it may encourage more parents to homeschool. Homeschooling is a means for parents to provide their children a quality education that meets the children’s needs. Homeschooling allows parents to ensure that their child's education reflects their values and beliefs, not the values and beliefs of federal bureaucrats.
Working with a team of top scholars, I have created my own homeschooling curriculum. My homeschooling curriculum provides students with a rigorous education in history, math, English, and other subjects. The curriculum is designed to benefit both college-bound students and those interested in pursuing other educational or career opportunities.
The curriculum features three tracks: natural sciences/math, social sciences/humanities, and business. Students may also take courses in personal finance and public speaking. The government and history sections of the curriculum emphasize Austrian economics, libertarian political theory, and the history of liberty. Unlike government school, my curriculum never puts ideological indoctrination ahead of education.

HECO plans to blanket the state with Smart Meters starting next January.
This can affect our health, safety, privacy and electric bill.
Health: A 7 million dollar California government mandated study showed with a 92% certainty that EMFs (the type of radiation produced by smart meters) caused leukemia and an 80% certainty that EMFs caused brain cancer.
The World Health Organization classifies such EMFs as a Class 2B possible carcinogen, the same class as DDT, chloroform and car exhaust.
Safety: There have been thousands of fires worldwide related to smart meters. Faulty installations, old wiring and impact vulnerabilities have been cited. Massive and expensive smart-meter installations have at times been halted because of documented fires. Most smart meters are not UL approved.
Privacy: Smart meters violate privacy. "With smart meters, police will have access to data that might be used to track residents' daily lives and routines inside their homes, including their eating, sleeping and showering habits, what appliances they use, and when and whether they prefer the television to the treadmill, among a host of other details," according to a U.S. Congressional Research Report. Also, the Hawaii Civil Liberties Union has expressed concerns about Fourth Amendment rights violations posed by smart meters.
Electric Bill: Your bill will go up. Hawaiian Electric's $340 million smart-meter project will
be ratepayer funded. Plus, where smart meters have been deployed elsewhere, energy bills have consistently increased, sometimes drastically.
Price increases will be steeper when Time-of-Use pricing goes into effect. We will be charged more for electricity when we need it most.
Come see the movie: Take Back Your Power, a DVD about Smart Meters
