Obama signs NDAA Into Law Obama signs NDAA Into Law

President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) today, allowing indefinite detention to be codified into law – perhaps the most blatantly unconstitutional law instituted by the White House in recent years. As you know, the White House had threatened to veto an earlier version of the NDAA but reversed course shortly before Congress voted on the final bill. While President Obama issued a signing statement saying he had “serious reservations” about the provisions, the statement only applies to how his administration would use it and would not affect how the law is interpreted by subsequent administrations.

The statute is particularly dangerous because it has no temporal or geographic limitations, and can be used by this and future presidents to militarily detain people captured far from any battlefield.

Ron Paul Foreign Policy

Amidst the whirlwind of media bias, ABC News has slipped in a bit of truth concerning Ron Paul’s often chided position on foreign policy. While every other GOP candidate supports just about every current and future war for any reason whatever, Ron Paul has been isolated by his position against endless wars, undeclared wars, and the legitimate constitutional reasons for going to war – but now he is seeing swaths of foreign policy experts who are coming out in agreement with the truth of this position that the media has tried so dearly to label “extreme.”

Threats to disrupt the Iowa Republican caucuses next week have prompted state GOP officials to move the vote tabulation to an “undisclosed location,” POLITICO has learned.

The state party has not yet told the campaigns exactly where the returns will be added up, only that it will be off-site from the Iowa GOP’s Des Moines headquarters. The 2008 caucus results were tabulated at the state party offices, which sit just a few blocks from the state capitol.

Activist groups including the Occupy movement have indicated that they’ll attempt to interrupt rallies in the closing days before next Tuesday’s caucuses. MORE

(TLS)- None of the counting is done by networked PC’s they ARE DONE BY HAND AND CALCULATOR!! Totally a good reason to move the vote count to a secret location to avoid internet hackers…WTF?! do they think we are small children that they can just fool? Looks like they are planning to steal the vote guys.

Joseph Stalin said “He who votes decides nothing; he who counts the votes decides everything.” How true.

The Israeli Defense Firm That Tallies The Iowa Caucus — Christopher Bollyn
http://poorrichards-blog.blogspot.com/2011/12/israeli-defense-firm-that-talli…

(Rense) — The Iowa caucus is only a few days away and the nation’s attention will be directed to the results, which signify the beginning of the U.S. presidential race. But does anyone watch who tallies the results of the Iowa caucus?

The Iowa caucus results were tallied in 2004 by a company that is headed by a man whose company was bought by Elron Electronics, the Israeli defense firm. I suspect that it will be the same this year. Don’t expect to see any grassroots political activists doing the tally in Iowa. The Israeli defense establishment takes care of that part of the American “democratic” election process.

A great video that gives image and context to the reality of blowback.


This is one of the most incredible speeches I have ever heard. It represents the depths of the beauty of man that society once knew. We must dig ourselves out of this ambiguous collectivist hole that is becoming ever more reminiscent of a grave with the initiation of every new war and every new tax. Ron Paul may be the last hope America has to reclaim the freedom our Founding Fathers once envisioned.

Speech By: Tom Mullen
Columnist, Speaker and Author of A Return to Common Sense: Reawakening Liberty in the Inhabitants of America

To the People of the United States of America,

I am writing today because no one has asked my opinion in any poll. No candidate has sought my vote, and no lobbyist taken up my cause. It seems that of all of the “special interests” in America, mine is forgotten – unworthy of notice by politicians, activists, media commentators, and the press.

It may be because I am neither a Republican nor a Democrat, nor represented by lobbyists for the disabled, senior citizens, minorities, trade unions, nor any other lobby. In fact, I am not a member of any group whatsoever.

I am the individual. Our Constitution was written to protect me from the majority. I am the victim of Democracy, which has overwhelmed the safeguards of the old Republic and replaced the Republic with mob rule. I am raising my voice now, while I am still able to raise it, if for no other reason than to let posterity know that I was still here when the ruins of our Republic are examined.

I have lived my life in a country that proclaims itself to the world to be the “land of the free,” but have watched my freedoms erode. The most basic right I had – ownership of the fruits of my labor – has been taken from me. Now, politicians argue over what portion of my labor will purchase medical care for the poor and elderly, what portion will pay social security, what portion will educate other people’s children, and what paltry sum I will be allowed to keep so that I may go out tomorrow and work another day.

I once lived in a country which recognized my right to do as I pleased, as long as I did not violate the rights of others. Now, mountains of laws and regulations have been passed in the perverse effort to prevent me from having even the opportunity to commit a crime. As a result, I am rendered paralyzed, as there is almost no action that I can take, beyond rising from my bed, that cannot be construed by someone to be a crime or violation.

More of my property is seized to support grand adventures in foreign lands, where my government spreads “freedom” through the crosshairs of its guns. My government’s invasion of countries that pose no military threat to us whatsoever has made me hated throughout the world, merely for being an American, and helped enslave my children to unserviceable debts.
Most ominously, even the legal protections of my person have been revoked in the name of protecting my fellow citizens against “terrorism.”

While the Constitution guarantees me sound money, as only gold and silver shall be legal tender, I am nevertheless forced to use the worthless paper notes of a private banking cartel that decreases their value daily, providing me no safe store of value to save for my future. To aid financial speculators who produce nothing whatsoever, the volume of these notes is increased out of all reason whenever these gamblers and thieves stand to suffer a loss. As a result, the purchasing power of this slave currency is constantly decreased, widening the gap between rich and poor, and destroying the middle class. I am left with no practical means to participate in free trade and civil society.

I give my fellow citizens the benefit of the doubt, and believe that they have merely forgotten what the true nature and purpose of government is. I remind them that government is nothing more than the collective use of force – and that the use of force is never justified except in defense. It is, by definition, a last resort. Government has almost limitless power, but very few rights. It has no right to do anything beyond protecting my life and my freedom.

Government has no right to provide for the needy with monies extorted at gunpoint from its citizens. I will gladly work with my fellow citizens to help those in need, once I have a choice. In the meantime, I demand that my labor cease to be taken from me without my consent.

Government has no right to bring freedom to the oppressed by initiating force. I remind my fellow citizens that all of the tyrants of history justified their conquests under the false guise of “liberation.” I will gladly stand with my countrymen to fight any foreign power that truly threatens us, but I demand that my government immediately cease to invade foreign countries in my name.

Government has no right to “manage the economy.” Trade is only truly trade when it is free – the result of exchanges between people by mutual, voluntary consent. There is no role for government in this whatsoever. I demand that my right to trade freely with my fellow citizens and citizens abroad be respected and no longer subject to inspection or interference.

Government has no right to “prevent crime.” It may only punish activities that are truly criminal, and those are relatively few compared to the ocean of laws and regulations that have been passed. I demand that any law prohibiting an act that does not directly harm another person be repealed, along with any law that prohibits unpopular thoughts or speech. Neither the threat of terrorism, poverty, natural disaster, nor epidemic justifies the surrender of one ounce of liberty. I demand that habeas corpus be restored.

Finally, government has no right to rob me of my property by forcing me to use paper currency whose value is subject to its whim. I demand that gold and silver no longer be taxed as capital gain if it rises in price relative to paper currency.

While I owe my fellow citizens nothing in return for heeding these demands, I nevertheless offer a thousand-fold in return. My fellow citizens are running out of fossil fuel – I will discover a new, renewable energy source. Our planet is growing crowded – I will unlock the secrets of traveling to others. The productive members of our society will soon be outnumbered by those less able or unable to produce any longer – I will feed them all. For it was I – the free individual – that gave you everything you have. It was I that invented the telephone, the automobile, the airplane, and the computer. It was I that devised methods to produce mass amounts of goods, making them affordable and available to everyone. It was I that devised a system of government where the rule of the jungle was replaced by the rule of just laws.

In return for restoring my rights, you will again free my creative power to give you more than you can possibly imagine, and solve problems which you are unable to solve without me. I ask nothing more in return, for it is no more my right to make claims upon my fellow citizens than it is their right to make claims upon me. I hereby waive any supposed “entitlement” to public welfare, medical care, retirement benefits, or any other benefit that requires coercion of my fellow citizens to provide it. In return I demand that my liberty be restored. As I believe that I am the last individual left on earth, I do not believe that my tax money will be missed. However, if there are other individuals besides me that would claim their freedom as well, I invite them to join me, and to them I pledge my life, my fortune, and my sacred honor.


I’m a huge fan of the Youtube user StormCloudsGathering, and his most recent video draws attention to the latest declaration from the Council on Foreign Relations which states it is “time to attack Iran.” Watch the video above to get an idea of how influential the CFR is to the White House, and how globally devastating a war with Iran could be.

The highly influential Council on Foreign Relations (aka CFR) declared this month in their online publication “Foreign Affairs” that it is now time to attack Iran.

The most recent comparison of Ron Paul user search trends vs. how often the mainstream media references him shows a continuation of the media being completely out of step with the rest of the population. Google searches show a significant surge among users searching for Ron Paul – where the search volume for Dr. Paul seems to indicate significantly more interest in him than in any other presidential candidate. When looking at the media references during the same time frame, however, a very different story is revealed. The media referenced Ron Paul the LEAST of all candidates at the exact same time that the American people were searching for him with a volume greater than all other candidates combined.

It’s common knowledge among most people, but this just provides the factual and visual evidence for the complaints of so many Americans that the media remains completely biased – intentionally serving political news in a way that totally contradicts the interests of the actual American people.

The mainstream media establishment does not want you to know about Ron Paul. That alone should warrant a Ron Paul presidency.


New polls have Ron Paul leading the Iowa caucuses, and performing the best against Obama in hypothetical matchups – tied with Romney. There is 1 problem however – Ron Paul is not the establishment candidate. A Ron Paul nomination represents a direct threat to big banks, big business, big lobbying, and the big military industrial complex – which is why the people recently rallying around Ron Paul’s message of freedom has these powerful groups downright terrified. The media and the political establishment have vowed to completely discredit and ignore any Ron Paul victory – essentially discrediting the idea of democracy altogether.

Please give your appreciation to Jack Cafferty above and Neil Cavuto below for being some of the last fair and unbiased journalists we have remaining.


A new poll from Public Policy Polling (PPP) released today shows Ron Paul has surged to the lead in Iowa with 23% of the vote, followed by Romney with 20%, and Newt Gingrich’s imploding campaign has sunk to 14%.

In addition to having more support right now Paul also has firmer support (73% solidly committed) than Romney (68% solidly committed).

For years the media has tirelessly berated Ron Paul, trying to convince the people to cover their ears when he’s talking. The media’s success is coming to a screeching halt – people have begun to listen to Ron Paul, and when that happens, the passionate support of his message inevitably follows. That’s what we’re seeing now with Ron Paul surging into first place in the most recent polls – and this has the mainstream media and the establishment Republicans in a fearful frenzy. The media’s advice to stop listening to Ron Paul has failed, and so now we are beginning to see what may be the media’s last tool of manipulation, their last defense against the surging support of Ron Paul: the “3rd party” attack. It has become so widespread and so visibly coordinated that anyone with eyes and a brain should find this both laughable and detestable…which is sure to usher in failure for this last media stunt.

A Ron Paul supporter recently acknowledged the reality of the situation that the media and GOP establishment can’t bear to acknowledge with this posting on ronpaulforums.com:

It doesn’t make any difference, third party or not.

I will not vote for nor support any other GOP machine candidate.

I’ll write his name in or stay home.
