The Looting of the Social Security “Trust” Fund

“Social Security is not an “entitlement program” paid for by government taxes. It is a completely separate program with its own revenue stream and retiree payments. Social Security is paid for by employees and employers, as is Medicare. The benefits provided by Social Security are earned, not bestowed by the government. None of the Social Security funds can legally be “borrowed” by the federal government. …

“According to the 2008 Social Security Trustees report, the Social Security Administration runs at a surplus of about $190 billion per year. Using any realistic view of the U.S. economy, the Social Security System will stay solvent, in fact reap a surplus, throughout the entire twenty-first century! …

“The impact of Social Security benefits on the lives of citizens and on local economies is incalculable. In 1995 Social Security paid $340 billion in benefits.

“Since the Johnson administration, the cabal that came into power through the coup d’etat of the Kennedy assassination has been looting Social Security funds and using them to pay for their illegal operations in six theaters of war.

“Cabal puppet politicians never mention that the Social Security system has been compiling a huge surplus since it was created. Why? Because they’ve been illegally looting that surplus for years to hide the real size of the current federal budget deficit, allowing them to spend more and justify tax cuts for the wealthy. US Office of Management and Budget (OMB) data show that while government’s reported deficit averaged about $300 billion a year from 2002 to 2006, the real current deficit was actually more than 50 per cent larger. The government just “steals” about $160-$200 billion from the Social Security Trust Fund every year–under the table. In 2007, the real deficit was $449 billion according to the OMB. However, the “official” deficit widely reported was only $257 billion, because government policy added the borrowed Social Security Trust Fund surplus ($192 billion in 2007) to revenues before calculating the “official” deficit.

The cabal wants to pillage social security because that’s where the money is–in the TRILLIONS!”

The Question of Depleted Uranium: The Groves Memo

Wikipedia has a copy of the Groves Memo online at

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Groves_memo_30oct43_p1.GIF

Nowhere in this document, which is sometimes claimed to demonstrate that the army has known of the toxicity of DU for decades, is there mention of any specific radioisotope, including uranium.  In fact reading the entire memo shows that it’s referring to isotopes which are many orders of magnitude more radioactive than U238.   One possible candidate for the type of radiological weapon they’re talking about would be cobalt 60, which is nearly a billion times more radioactive (in the sense of decays per second) than U238.  In other words, this is not a smoking gun for DU toxicity.

With that said, it’s clear that in 1994 the army was and presumably still is very concerned about the health effects of inhaled DU.

Reckless Endangerment: GMO products in Infant Formula

“The Cornucopia Institute, an organic industry research and watchdog organization, announced it has formally requested the USDA’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) to investigate corruption at its National Organic Program resulting in the use of illegal synthetics in organic food and then allowing powerful corporations to “game the system” for approval “after the fact.”

“The controversy surrounds products developed by Martek Biosciences Corporation. Martek, part of a $12 billion Dutch-based conglomerate, recently petitioned for approval of its genetically modified soil fungus and algae as nutritional supplements in organic food.

“Martek’s formulated oils are processed with synthetic petrochemical solvents in a blend containing a myriad of other synthetic chemicals. Supplements derived from these oils, commonly marketed as DHA and ARA, are being added to milk, infant formula and other organic foods by such companies as Dean Foods (Horizon), Abbott Laboratories (Similac) and Nurture, Inc. (Happy Baby). …

“Although the FDA has dismissed complaints about the safety of Martek products in infant formula, reports persist from parents and healthcare providers of infants who experience serious gastrointestinal symptoms from consuming Martek’s DHA and ARA oils in infant formula, raising serious public health questions about the marketing of these products.”

You’d have to be absolutely crazy not to feed infants human breast milk.   Do you know someone who’s going to have a baby and use formula?  Why not talk to them?  Just send them this link and the relevant links in the “munchausen obstetrics” article at the top.  Do the kid a favor.   Human milk is the post-birth umbilical cord.

This travesty of american medicine has been going on for decades, yet people still take healthy young children to pediatricians educated in institutions which take payoffs from these predatory corporations.

Medicopaths at CDC Pushing Gardasil HPV Vaccine for Boys

“Will hundreds of more websites soon be popping up telling the tragic tales of young men whose lives were riddled with adverse effects after receiving the Gardasil vaccine?  Based on the devastating history of the HPV shot Gardasil, the answer is most likely an unfortunate ‘yes’.

“Following the advice of an advisory panel who failed to examine the high number of adverse reactions and deaths associated with Gardasil use, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is now recommending that all boys between the ages of 11 and 12-years-old receive the Gardasil shot.

“The advisory panel and the CDC both fail to mention that Gardasil was linked to 3,589 harmful reactions and 16 deaths between May 2009 and September 2010 alone, which could be of major concern to parents considering injecting their children with the shot. Permanent disability was the result of 213 cases; 25 resulted in the diagnosis of Guillain-Barre Syndrome; and there were 789 other “serious” reports according to FDA documents.” …

Mussolini was a British Agent

“Documents reveal Italian dictator got start in politics in 1917 with help of £100 weekly wage from MI5

“History remembers Benito Mussolini as a founder member of the original Axis of Evil, the Italian dictator who ruled his country with fear and forged a disastrous alliance with Nazi Germany. But a previously unknown area of Il Duce’s CV has come to light: his brief career as a British agent.” …

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/oct/13/benito-mussolini-recruited-mi5-italy

“Brief career”?   £100 per week in 1917 works out to over $444,000 per year in 2010 dollars!  Who do they think they’re kidding?

Hitler was a great admirer of american eugenicists and his regime was heavily supported by wall street business interests.  How extensive were his western intel connections?

Clueless Embeds Fret Over Human Consequences of Dystopian Paradise

“Are We Ready for a ‘Morality Pill’?

“Why are some people prepared to risk their lives to help a stranger when others won’t even stop to dial an emergency number?  Scientists have been exploring questions like this for decades. In the 1960s and early ’70s, famous experiments by Stanley Milgram and Philip Zimbardo suggested that most of us would, under specific circumstances, voluntarily do great harm to innocent people. During the same period, John Darley and C. Daniel Batson showed that even some seminary students on their way to give a lecture about the parable of the Good Samaritan would, if told that they were running late, walk past a stranger lying moaning beside the path. More recent research has told us a lot about what happens in the brain when people make moral decisions. But are we getting any closer to understanding what drives our moral behavior? ….

“It seems plausible that humans, like rats, are spread along a continuum of readiness to help others. There has been considerable research on abnormal people, like psychopaths, but we need to know more about relatively stable differences (perhaps rooted in our genes) in the great majority of people as well.  Undoubtedly, situational factors can make a huge difference, and perhaps moral beliefs do as well, but if humans are just different in their predispositions to act morally, we also need to know more about these differences. Only then will we gain a proper understanding of our moral behavior, including why it varies so much from person to person and whether there is anything we can do about it.

“If continuing brain research does in fact show biochemical differences between the brains of those who help others and the brains of those who do not, could this lead to a “morality pill” — a drug that makes us more likely to help? Given the many other studies linking biochemical conditions to mood and behavior, and the proliferation of drugs to modify them that have followed, the idea is not far-fetched. If so, would people choose to take it? Could criminals be given the option, as an alternative to prison, of a drug-releasing implant that would make them less likely to harm others? Might governments begin screening people to discover those most likely to commit crimes? Those who are at much greater risk of committing a crime might be offered the morality pill; if they refused, they might be required to wear a tracking device that would show where they had been at any given time, so that they would know that if they did commit a crime, they would be detected.” …

http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/01/28/are-we-ready-for-a-morality-pill/

“Undoubtedly, situational factors can make a huge difference ….”

This is the sum total of the author’s attempt to understand humans as learning, thinking beings with rights and dignity instead of cogs in the great industrial machine of western “civilization”.  Perish the thought that people might model reality based on the realities that have been thrust upon them.  There’s no profit in bucking the system, only in shoehorning people into it.  The reductionist paradigm of human existence only allows for the analysis and judgement of individual fish, not the ocean that we all swim in.  This is why modern, “scientific” obstetrics and psychiatry are so very dangerous the the human rights of children and the well being of society as a whole.  Their so-called science has no concept of normalcy or human dignity.  The consequences of their normalized abuse are simply dealt with (at a further profit) by other agents of the state.  A tidy business model for the status quo.

At the risk of sounding reductionist myself, these people are like computer programmers who attempt to debug a malfunctioning program with wire cutters and a soldering iron.  Maybe the problem is with the input, not the cpu.

Morpheus: “The Matrix is everywhere, it is all around us, even now in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window, or you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.”

Neo: “What truth?”

Morpheus: “That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage… born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind.”

Bankrupt RI City Loses All Pretense of Self Governance

“When the state stepped in to take over financially struggling Central Falls in 2010, Rhode Island’s smallest city lost something fundamental: its democratic government.

“Mayor Charles Moreau would be forced to give back his key to City Hall, and the City Council was relegated to advisory status — unsure for months whether it was even allowed to convene.

“They’re being governed without elected representation,” state Sen. Elizabeth Crowley said of Central Falls’ 19,000 residents. “That flies in the face of the democratic principle that our country is founded on, not only our little city. Maybe we should have a tea party and dump some tea in the Blackstone” River.”

http://news.yahoo.com/troubled-ri-city-receivership-loses-democracy-164854804.html

I say “pretense” because we’ve all lost our right to self-governance due to the labyrinth of interlocking public and private debt “obligations” we were lured into during the “federal reserve’s” bubbles, and in the name of protecting the rights of anonymous “investors” we’re all subject to the confiscation of our homes, businesses, libraries, highways and governments.  When “property rights” conflict with democracy, governance becomes a matter of arithmetic without even a token gesture at democracy or consent.  It’s as if debt was a law of physics rather than a legal construct whose legitimacy is derived from a presumption of fairness and the rule of law in a financial system which has now been exposed as fraudulent to the core, to the very basis of money itself.

When a family is foreclosed on and children are put into the street, it’s done in the name of protecting “our” rights as participants in the marketplace.  But this is where the terminology breaks down.  There are two “our”‘s here: individuals and the collective whole.  The larger system is assumed to be in some sense a fair reflection of the will of the masses of the individuals that comprise it.  But it shouldn’t be necessary to point out that historical experience proves this assumption is utterly false.  The larger system is not derivable from the wills of individuals because its internal dynamics create new entities like corporations and banks which themselves demand recognition as individuals with rights.  When we enter into contracts with these larger, immortal “individuals” we are inherently at a disadvantage, as demonstrated by their lawlessness and impunity in the present time.  It’s as if a sheep entered into a contract with a tiger, except in this case the “tiger” consists of groups of other sheep or the entire herd.  The contract is unenforcable by the weaker, therefore the contract itself is inherently fraudulent.  The rule of the jungle has always applied, but now it’s no longer hidden behind false promises, it’s out in the open.

This line of reasoning is based on common sense and history, but now we know that this type of collective “individuality” arises in complex systems in general, in a wide variety of domains ranging from biological cells to neural nets to economies.  The will of your body is not a simple average of the wills of its individual cells, even when it comes to physical survival, as evidenced by suicide.  This phenomenon is called “emergence”.  Applying this knowledge to human affairs holds great promise, if we can survive the coming systemic breakdown.
