SOCIALISM IS GOOD

SOCIALISM IS GOOD

Countries such as Singapore, Norway and Switzerland are part capitalist and part socialist.

We are talking about “borderline socialist states, with generous welfare benefits and lots of redistribution of wealth.”

The World’s Happiest Countries – Forbes

All of the above countries are wealthier than the USA.

The United Nations World Happiness Report 2013 shows that the happiest nations are concentrated in northern Europe, where the Nordic model of social democracy has been employed
However, the CIA and its friends have been making various attempts to destabilise countries such as Norway.
One of the aims of the Anders Breivik false flag was to promote the ‘right wing’ in Norway.
Socialism has its merits.
In the early 1900s, socialists led the movements for votes for women, child labour laws, consumer protection laws and the progressive income tax.

Is Bernie Sanders’ democratic socialism right for America.

The word ‘socialism’ is related to ‘sociare’, the Roman word for ‘to share’.

There are elements of socialist thinking in the teachings of Plato[51]Aristotle.[52] and Jesus.

….

The term “socialism” was used by Henri de Saint-Simon.

Simon saw “socialism” as a contrast to the doctrine of selfish “individualism”.

“The world’s wealthiest 62 people now own as much as the poorest half of the planet’s population.”

“The richest 1% now own as much as everyone else put together.”
 

Robert Owen and David Dale’s mills, at New Lanark, made good profits, in spite of not employing child labour, and not paying slave wages.
The socialist Robert Owen proposed the organization of production and ownership in cooperatives.
Thomas Paine proposed a detailed plan to tax property owners to pay for the needs of the poor in Agrarian Justice[55]
The Chartists in the United Kingdom wanted the vote given to all male adults and wanted a more equitable distribution of income and better living conditions for ordinary people.

Socialism is not the same as communism.

Communism, as organised by Lenin and Stalin, was an extremist (Kosher Nostra) doctrine, not much different from fascism; with the original Soviet and Chinese Communism , a rich elite treated the ordinary people as slaves.

Hitler, like Tony Blair, was used by the ‘right wing’ to smash socialism. Hitler got his thugs to beat up socialists.

Chris Watson.In 1904, Australians elected the first Australian Labor Party prime minister: Chris Watson, who became the first democratically elected social democrat.

The British Labour Party first won seats in the House of Commons in 1902.
After World War II, social democratic governments introduced social reform and wealth redistribution via state welfare and taxation.

Salvador Allende, president of Chile and member of the Socialist Party of Chile. His presidency was ended by the CIA on 9 11.[165]The main opposition to Socialism comes from the CIA, working on behalf of the rich elite.

In Indonesia, the moderate socialist President Sukarno was toppled by the CIA, who ordered the murders of around one million Indonesians, the vast majority of them moderates.

The CIA toppled the socialist Salvador Allende, and replaced him with the fascist Augusto Pinochet.

The CIA also committed mass murder in Nicaragua because it preferred right wing dictatorship to agrarian reform.

…In Europe, the CIA’s Operation Gladio carried out numerous acts of false flag terrorism in order to keep the rich elite in power.

In the UK, the CIA infiltrated the Labour Party and took over all the key positions.

Controlled by the CIA, many social democratic parties, particularly after the Cold war, adopted neoliberal market policies including privatisation and deregulation.

The Western welfare state was attacked from within, but state support for the corporate sector was maintained.[200]
In the 1990s, the British Labour Party, under Tony Blair, continued the policy of transferring wealth from the ordinary people to the rich elite.

The game of Monopoly comes to an end when one player has a monopoly.
“The world’s wealthiest 62 people own as much as the poorest half of the planet’s population.”

“The richest 1% now own as much as everyone else put together.”
 
global inequality.

The current economic crisis is easily solved if we adopt a more socialist approach.

It’s time to increase taxes on the rich.

“The west’s leading economic thinktank”, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development recently produced a report on inequality.

The report says that rising inequality causes lower growth in an economy.

Rising inequality is estimated to have reduced growth by:

More than 10% in Mexico and New Zealand.

Nearly 9% in the UK, Finland and Norway.

Between 6% and 7% in the United States, Italy and Sweden.

It has been revealed that the wealth gap holds back economic growth.


OECD secretary-general Angel Gurría

The report shows that the UK economy would have been more than 20% bigger had the gap between rich and poor not widened since the 1980s.

The OECD proposes higher taxes on the rich and policies aimed at increasing the wealth of the bottom 40% of the population.

Reagan and Thatcher supported ‘trickle-down economics’, the crazy idea that ordinary people would benefit from weakening trade unions and making bankers richer.


J P Morgan

The OECD report shows that:

1. “Income inequality has a sizeable and … negative impact on growth.”

2. “Inequality … hampers growth.”

“The world’s wealthiest 62 people own as much as the poorest half of the planet’s population.”

“The richest 1% now own as much as everyone else put together.”
 

The game of Monopoly can go on for ever, so long as the rich 0.01% do not end up controlling all the properties, houses, hotels and cash.

The game of Monopoly can also go on for ever, so long as you are allowed to borrow money.

You land on ‘Mayfair’ where your opponent has hotels.

You haven’t got enough cash, so you borrow from ‘the bank’, which has limitless money.

Each time you pass ‘Go’ you pay 5% on your borrowing.

If your opponent lands on your hotels on ‘Oxford Street’, you then have enough money to pay back the money borrowed from the bank.



Of course, if your opponent has far more properties and hotels than you, you will end up with growing debts.

But, the bank always allows you to borrow more money.

So the game goes on for ever.

The game only ends if:

(1) the rules are changed so that there is a limit to borrowing

(2) and, one player has far more properties, hotels and cash than the other and the dice are generally in his favour.

The USA currently has some economic problems.

Its debt is rising. 

Its population is ageing. 

Its schools are mediocre. 

Its infrastructure is rickety. 

Its politicians are corrupt.

It is spending too much money on wars.

There is a giant gap in wealth between the elite and the average citizen…

But, so long as the US government can go on printing money, the game can go on for ever.

Of course, if the USA fails to get its house in order, the dollar will go down in value and ordinary people become much poorer.



We should all look at Switzerland, which is made up of a number of counties (cantons).

The central government in Switzerland controls the railways. 

The cantons control education, labour, economic and welfare policies and so on.

Each canton has its own parliament and constitution. 

The communes vary in size from a few hundred to more than a million people.

Switzerland has lots of hotels!

Many people today are richer than people back in 1820.

However, the gap between the haves and the have-nots globally is now at the same level as in the 1820s.

Gap Widens!

This is according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

The researchers studied income levels in 25 countries, charted them back to 1820 and then collated them as if the world was a single country.

The Gini coefficient is used to measure income inequality.

Zero represents perfect equality and 100 perfect inequality.

The global Gini rose from 49 in 1820 to 66 in 2000.

Britain 1960s 1970s. London’s Science Museum.

Between 1950 and 1980, income inequality did drop sharply.

This was due to an ‘egalitarian revolution.’

This ‘egalitarian revolution’ involved Socialist Parties and Trade Unions winning better wages and conditions for the poor, particularly in Europe.

These Socialist Parties and Trade Unions were then infiltrated by the right-wing security services.

Reagan came to power in 1981 and Thatcher came to power in 1979.

Inequality shot up after globalization got going in the 1980s.

The gap between the haves and the have-nots globally is now at the same level as in the 1820s.

Brazil and Mexico are even more unequal than they were in 1820.

Only in a few nations – such as Switzerland and France – has there been a long-term decline in income inequality.

The Scandinavian countries have the smallest income disparities, but these countries have now been fully infiltrated by the CIA and its friends.

Some voters have been successfully brainwashed into voting for the politicians who will rob the poor in order to help the rich.
Think of Reagan, Thatcher, Blair, Obama…
Some voters have been brainwashed into rejecting the politicians who help the poor.
Think of the critics of Arbenz in Guatemala, Mosaddegh in Iran, Allende in Chile, Ben Ali in Tunisia…

There is a continuing mind control programme to persuade the voters that the rich deserve to be rich and that the poor deserve to be poor.

There is a continuing mind control programme to persuade the voters that taxes on the rich must not be raised and that the moderate socialist policies in Scandinavia are a bad thing.

Robert Owen took over some textile mills at a place called New Lanark in Scotland.

At that time, in the early 19th century, children from as young as five were working for thirteen hours a day in the mills.

Robert Owen brought about reforms, such as halting the employment of young children.

His mills prospered.

 
London strike 
 
On 14 August 1889, in the UK, the Great London Dock strike began.
The Dockers demanded a minimum wage of 6 pence an hour.
The strike was a success.
Dockers could afford to buy more in the shops.
Some of the money raised in tax went towards the military-industrial complex. 
 
In 1909, the UK government increased taxes on the super-rich.
 
“Income tax was raised to one shilling on incomes above £2,000; those earning over £5,000 would pay an additional super tax at six pence in the pound on income above £3,000.
“Only 25,000 people earned above £3,000 and those liable for super tax numbered around 10,000.”
Some of the money raised from tax was diverted towards buying the weapons of war used in the 1914-18 conflict.
But, gradually in the UK there was a narrowing of the gap between the rich and the poor.

However, the ‘bad guys’ then began to infiltrate the reform movements.

6. Approximately 1 billion people throughout the world go to bed hungry each night.

7. The wealthiest 2 percent own more than half of all global household assets.
8. It is estimated that over 80 percent of the world’s population lives in countries where the income gap between the rich and the poor is widening.
9. Every 3.6 seconds someone starves to death and three-quarters of them are children under the age of 5.

It has been argued that during the 19th century, the family possessed by far the largest private fortune in the world, and by far the largest fortune in modern history.
Nobody seems to know exactly how much the Rothschilds are worth today. They dominate the banking establishments of England, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and many other nations. It was estimated that they were worth billions back in the mid-1800s. What the total wealth of the family is today is surely an amount that is almost unimaginable, but nobody knows for sure.

U.K. Town Moves Forward with Fluoridated Milk for Children

 

fluoridated_milk

On Monday January 18, the Blackpool Council approved a plan to introduce fluoridated milk to school children via the town’s free breakfast program. The Council is attempting to tackle a dental health problem that has caused nearly half of all 12-year olds in Blackpool to have at least one decayed, missing, or filled tooth.

The Blackpool Gazette reports:

Coun Graham Cain, cabinet secretary for Blackpool Council, said: “Unfortunately the state of Blackpool’s dental health is very poor.

However, where some parts of the country can benefit from fluoride naturally appearing in their daily drinking water, in Blackpool we cannot.

What we do have is a method through the free breakfast programme that allows us to reach all primary school children as they are growing up and make the fluoride milk available to them there.

The proposal will allow for children to opt out and requires the schools to provide non-fluoridated milk. First proposed in 2013 the plan was delayed while studies were conducted. The studies found that children in the town have “lower than normal” levels of fluoride.

The Blackpool Council’s website states,

a proposal to introduce fluoridated milk, which contains fluoride to help reduce the risk of tooth decay, was approved by the Council’s Executive on Monday 18 January. The milk, which is recommended by the World Health Organisation, is the latest in Blackpool Council’s plans to tackle poor dental hygiene amongst children in the town.

Around 400 children in Blackpool are also admitted to hospital every year to have teeth extracted under general anaesthetic, at a cost to the NHS of thousands of pounds.

The Council also states that the fluoridated milk plan will come at no extra cost to the taxpayer thanks to the free breakfast program. They estimate that 8,400 students currently receive milk on a daily basis and many of them will now be drinking fluoridated milk. The plan would add .8 mg Fluoride per 189 ml of milk, or 4.2 parts per million. In April 2015 the U.S. government lowered the recommended levels of fluoride to 0.7 parts per million.

Interestingly, under a section titled “Ethical Considerations” the Blackpool council writes “none.” The reason I find that interesting is because a simple search of studies on fluoridation will show that there are many health issues associated with the practice and thus dosing children with the chemical through their milk does raise some ethical questions.

The Blackpool Council also writes that the benefits of fluoridated milk have been proven by the European Union and the World Health Organisation. “This is why fluoride is widely used in many ways for example water or toothpaste and mouth washes. A well mineralised tooth is what everyone is trying to achieve to prevent decay,” the Council writes.

However, critics have long argued that any benefits of fluoride are only effective when applied topically, directly to the teeth. This would make water and milk fluoridation largely a waste of resources. Moreover, exposing the internal organs to fluoride might actually be harmful to health. The possibility of harmful side effects from water fluoridation is still heavily debated.

In 2015 Truth In Media reported that the Cochrane Collaboration, a  global independent network of researchers, professionals, and patients, narrowed the review down to the most comprehensive, well-designed and reliable papers, before analyzing and publishing their conclusion.

According to Newsweek:

The review identified only three studies since 1975—of sufficient quality to be included—that addressed the effectiveness of fluoridation in the population at large. These papers determined that fluoridation does not reduce cavities to a statistically significant degree, says study co-author Anne-Marie Glenny, a health science researcher at Manchester University in the United Kingdom.

The scientists also found “insufficient evidence” that fluoridation reduces tooth decay in adults (children excluded). “From the review, we’re unable to determine whether water fluoridation has an impact on caries levels in adults,” Glenny says.

Trevor Sheldon, dean of the Hull York Medical School in the United Kingdom, conducted a review of water fluoridation in 2000. Sheldon concluded that the process is not effective. “I had assumed because of everything I’d heard that water fluoridation reduces cavities but I was completely amazed by the lack of evidence,” he told Newsweek. “My prior view was completely reversed.”

Sheldon points out that some studies have actually shown that when water fluoridation was ceased, cavities went down a small percentage among schoolchildren.  This includes a 2001 study of two British Columbia communities that was included in the Cochrane review.

The Cochrane team also found that most studies confirming the effectiveness of fluoridation were completed prior to the widespread use of dental products such as mouth rinses and toothpastes. The study did find evidence that fluoridation was linked to a 26 percent decrease in cavities. However, this study was also done before the growth of modern dentistry. The researchers write, “We have limited confidence in the size of this effect due to the high risk of bias within the studies and the lack of contemporary evidence.”

In early June, the Health Research Board (HRB) completed an in-depth review of the effects of water fluoridation. The review was conducted at the behest of the U.S. Department of Health. After examining all internationally peer-reviewed papers on the topic of fluoride and health effects from 2006 to 2014, the HRB “found no definitive evidence that community water fluoridation is associated with positive or negative systemic health effects.”

US Unleashing Deadly Virus in Donbass, Ukraine?

 

Donbass region

Chemical, biological and radiological warfare is a longstanding US practice, used in direct and proxy wars, Syrians and Yemenis notably affected.

On January 22, the Donbass International News Agency (DINA) headlined “Deadly virus leaked from US laboratory – DPR Army and Intelligence,” saying:

“More than 20 Ukrainian soldiers have died and over 200 are hospitalized,” affected by a virus “immune to all medicines.”

Thousands of Ukrainian troops are stationed in areas bordering Donbass. Intermittent shelling continues, civilians largely threatened.

The lab in question is located in Shelkostantsiay, about 30 km from Kharkov near Donbass. “US military experts” operate there, said DINA.

Donbass Deputy Defense Minister/spokesman Eduard Basurin informed area residents of a potential epidemic.

“According to the medical personnel of the AFU units (Ukrainian troops), there were recorded mass diseases among the Ukrainian military personnel in the field,” he said.

Physicians recorded the unknown virus as a result of which the infected get (a) high fever which cannot be subdued by any medicines, and in two days there comes the fatal outcome.

Thus far from the virus there have died more than twenty servicemen, what is carefully shielded by the commandment of the AFU from the publicity.

Days earlier, DINA reported Ukrainian forces shelled Kominernovo, Zheleznaya Balka and Spartak.

Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) intelligence said Ukrainian forces and heavy weapons are deployed near the contact line – indicating a “readiness of the Ukrainian power agencies to aggravate the situation in Donbass,” DINA reported.

Kiev continues violating Minsk ceasefire terms – with full support and encouragement from Washington.

According to DPR intelligence, “(i)n eight localities of the ‘buffer zone’ seized by the AFU there were registered cleansings of the local population, defiant” of Minsk.

The cleansings are carried out by the representatives of the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) with reinforcement by units of the 36th separate naval infantry brigade, by reason of the huge information leak in these areas.

In particular, about concentration of the AFU’s forbidden arms and personnel in the so-called ‘grey’ zone, and preparation by the Ukrainian power structures of provocations against civilians.

Basurin said ISIS and other terrorist elements from Syria and Iraq now operate in Donbass. In mid-January, DPR’s Defense Ministry revealed foreign mercenaries in the self-declared republic.

They conduct “recurrent attacks on our positions,” it explained. Is Ukraine a new platform for ISIS expansion? Is Washington deploying their elements there?

Addressing the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, John Kerry turned truth on its head, claiming a safer Middle East and world today.

Conditions are graver than ever. Endless US wars of aggression rage. Kiev refused to implement Minsk I and II ceasefire terms.

Washington wants war, not peace. It wants Donbass destabilized, its freedom fighters eliminated, its democratic rights denied.

Kerry telling WEF participants “it is possible in these next months to find those Minsk agreements implemented and to get to a place where sanctions (on Russia) can be appropriately…removed” runs counter to US policy since Obama replaced democrats with fascists in Ukraine, and Russia was falsely accused of invading its territory.

Illegal sanctions were imposed for fabricated reasons, European nations pressured to go along. Conflict resolution in Donbass remains elusive.

Back to School Vaccine Hysteria Culminates in Hunt for Unvaccinated Kids

 

vaccs_dees

By Heather Callaghan

Due to increased mandatory vaccination legislation, parents are being politely threatened by the corporate-sponsored press, the CDC and the school systems that they had better get jabs for their children. In many cases, such as in California, it’s the law. In cases where it’s not completely mandatory, veiled threats and social pressure to submit have reached an ominous fever-pitch.

While the media can offer ostensible friendliness in passive aggressive threats to “get with the vaccine program” as it can rest on the buttress of law, it has not yet dispensed with extraordinary hysteria, authoritarian peer pressure and even targeting children in public shaming rituals.

This is because it’s “Back to School” rush hour, one of the biggest spending seasons. In the rush to spend one’s literal last pennies on supplies, clothes and lunches, the government doesn’t want you to forget to sacrifice and scrape that last bit for required injections.

One headline goes like this: Parents told to check vaccine status ahead of school. It was a “friendly reminder” to Oregon parents that their non-medical exemptions are null, that booster shots are required for older students and that preschool caretakers are to get jabs or close down.

A recent CNN headline “As kids go back to school, states look to encourage vaccinations,” chides parents who might be naughty:

When kids start school this fall, it’s a sure bet that some won’t have had their recommended vaccines because their parents have claimed exemptions from school requirements for medical, religious or philosophical reasons. Following the much publicized outbreak of measles that started in Disneyland in California in December, these exemptions have drawn increased scrutiny.  [emphasis added]

That’s right, all of these convenient moves to corral people into compulsory toxic injections hinge on the original hysteria produced by “Disneyland measles.” What the media never reports is that California had a 97.46% student vaccination rate during that time. Pharma manufacturers cry that they need 95% rate to achieve so-called “herd immunity.” And did you know that Idaho has the highest proportion of kindergartners with exemptions, at only 6.5 percent?

The hysteria also serves as a convenient deflection from other inconvenient truths such as the fact that so many more people have died from the MMR vaccine (and the previous single-vial measles vaccine) than the measles disease in over a decade. Have the pharmaceutical manufacturers ever been held accountable – no, we account for it in tax dollars under a $3 billion dollar bail-out, so far.

Back to Disneyland measles which followed Ebola-gate. I see that it has further victimized children. While these laws pass due to cries of “the children! the children!” – the Senators spearheading the crusade obviously do not show concern for children when they receive funds from Big Pharma. Big Pharma sits on bail-outs, industry-paid “scientists,” control of media (including social media) and mandatory legislation. Emotional trolling has led some parents to succumb to disgraceful social interactions like asking a parent if her kid has “had her shots” before they are allowed to come over and play.

One report provides “tools” for parents to help them “remember” to get all the pharma recommended shots:

Secretary Galvin has a new tool on his website that shows parents the recommended vaccines for their children by age – from birth to eighteen years old.

At first the report conveyed friendly help to new parents, but then…:

As students prepare to head back into the classroom, some parents believe they shouldn’t be required by law to vaccinate their kids. [emphasis added]

Additionally, the pressure is high to “hunt” unvaccinated children in public shaming statistics that compel parents to do the dirty work of peer-pressure. For instance, if states post local vaccination rates at the recent behest of the CDC, and if parents act accordingly by the statistics, it will increase pressure to vaccinate on area doctors and school systems desperate for attendance funds.

Associated Press reports [emphasis added]:

How many kids are vaccinated at your child’s school? Federal health officials think you should be able to easily find out.

CDC’s Dr. Anne Schuchat made the push more public during a press conference Thursday.

“It’s important to recognize when vulnerabilities exist in communities,” said Schuchat, who oversees the agency’s vaccination work.

Parents could use the information to weigh their child’s risk of vaccine-preventable illnesses at specific schools or school districts, Schuchat said. And it could help health officials identify pockets of unvaccinated children, she said.

Can these numbers be trusted? What happens when the rate of vaccination reaches 100% and the only thing left to show for it is more disease and sickness? Who or what will be blamed then? Again, there is no recourse.

One would think stigmas, discrimination, scarlet letters and other forms of public shaming would be counter-intuitive in preventing disease and helping children grow into healthy, confident adults. To see the results of previous experiments, just glance back at history. It’s never been about “the children.” They say that truth is the first casualty of all types of wars – are children the second? If deception is the first weapon of forceful agendas, are shame and hysteria the second? They are the most negative, yet effective forms of marketing ever concocted.

Unauthorized Government Attacks Are Murder

Although U.S. drones firing missiles at suspected bad guys in faraway places – such as Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia – have gotten much publicity in recent years, it was recently revealed that the CIA assassinated top Hezbollah terrorist Imad Mugniyah with a good old fashioned car bomb in Damascus, Syria with President George W. Bush’s strident approval in 2008. Because of an executive order, signed in 1975 by President Gerald Ford, prohibiting assassinations by the CIA, presidents usually get around that order by using the military to kill an enemy bigwig and then make the disingenuous claim that it was merely taking out a “command and control” target rather than an assassination. In this case, Bush, never one to observe constitutional or legal niceties, became incensed that the CIA director was being too timid in carrying out the hit using the exploding car. The real issue in such cases is not whether it is more dangerous to liberty to kill the enemy using a high tech drone or a more traditional car bomb, but whether it constitutional to do either.

 

Even Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, the author of numerous books and a legal expert for Fox News, in an otherwise excellent history of the usurpation of unique American civil liberties at the expense of ever expanding executive power (see Suicide Pact: The Radical Expansion of Presidential Powers and the Lethal Threat to American Liberty) focuses too much on President Barack Obama’s killing of American citizens without due process – for example, Anwar al Alawki in Yemen in 2011. Napolitano correctly argues that an American president is essentially claiming the right to murder his own citizens without prior legal niceties, but he focuses too much on the use of exotic drone technology to do so and not enough on a larger and more important problem. If anyone – U.S. citizen or not – is attempting to attack the United States, the president should have a right to take them out, provided the Congress has authorized military action or declared war. Even then, according to the founders’ original constitutional vision, if the country is under imminent threat of attack, the president can take appropriate action and get congressional authorization at the earliest possible time. If the president doesn’t have such legislative approval or a legitimate “imminent attack” rationale, he is essentially murdering people – U.S. citizens or not.

 

However, Obama did not start the congressionally unauthorized drone wars in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia – which because of this lack of legitimate authority are essentially murdering people without due process – George W. Bush did. But Obama has accelerated the illegitimate killing. Neither president can be given an exemption for imminent attacks; the Pakistani Taliban in Pakistan, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in Yemen, and al Shabab in Somalia have been around a long time, so both presidents have had plenty of time to get congressional approval for the drone wars.

 

Of course, both presidents would claim that the post-9/11 Authorization of the Use of Military Force (AUMF) gave them approval to go anywhere in search of al Qaeda-related groups. However, upon reading the AUMF, that is not the case. The AUMF merely authorized the president to go after those who perpetrated or supported the 9/11 attacks or who harbored the attackers; thus, the authorization would be limited to the central al Qaeda group and the Afghan Taliban that had harbored them. Groups only loosely affiliated with al Qaeda, and that had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks – such as those mentioned in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia – are clearly outside the purview of the AUMF. In other words, when Obama killed an American citizen in the main al Qaeda group, such as Osama bin Laden, it was not murder, because a legitimate war exists with that group. In contrast, Obama’s killing of at least four Americans in the other theaters was murder – but so is killing people of other nationalities, because he doesn’t have the authority to do that either without due process (unless he can get Congress to approve military action in those places).

 

The only other drawback to Napolitano’s thoroughly excellent coverage of expansion of presidential power, and it’s related to this topic, is that he underplays the expansion of the president’s war power at Congress’s expense. Since 1950, during the Korean War, for the first time in American history, President Harry Truman declined to ask Congress to declare war to authorize a major military action. This unconstitutional usurpation of power by the executive is every bit as serious as Napolitano’s meticulous documentation of presidential excesses in trampling of civil liberties at home during wartime.

 

The nation’s founders placed the war power clearly in the hands of the people’s branch of government, the Congress, to avoid the cancer that was running rampant then in Europe – executives (mainly kings) fighting wars of aggrandizement at high cost, in blood and treasure, to the common citizen. Thus, if the president wants to kill enemies abroad, any killing – whether it’s done with drones, bombs, or bullets or whether it kills Americans or foreigners – should be regarded as illegal and unconstitutional unless it has been approved by the legislative branch. Yet even this legitimately legal option might be used too much. Let’s treat suspected terrorists as criminals, not warriors, and first attempt to use law enforcement cooperation among nations to capture and try them, using acceptable standards of due legal process. Using the criminal justice system as a first resort, and congressionally approved military action only as a last resort, would also avoid retaliatory blowback terrorism in response to the now profligate and illegal U.S. armed intervention in far flung places.

FEMA Camp Mass Incarceration Is A Goal of the Ebola Crisis

For a number of years, the topic of FEMA Camps (i.e. American concentration camps) have been rumored to exist. Jesse Ventura, on his show, Conspiracy Theory, revealed to the public the existence of FEMA Camps in such a dramatic fashion that the episode has been banned from public viewing.

Through the years, there has been much speculation about the existence of FEMA Camps and their true purpose. Recent events surrounding the recent Ebola crisis, is making it clear that the camps, as well as other co-opted public facilities (e.g. stadiums, malls, etc.) will be used to enforce medical martial law for both the sick as well as anyone else who the government determines is a (health) risk to the well-being of the public. Am I saying that the camps will be used to house political dissidents. This is undeniably true. This article traces the inception of FEMA camps to the present and intended purpose. This article will also expose the fact that it will not just be Ebola victims going to these camps where there will be medical facilities.

Insurance Companies Begin Writing ‘Ebola Exclusions’ into Policies

ebola screen 263x164 Insurance Companies Begin Writing Ebola Exclusions into PoliciesRemember the promise of universal health care with Obamacare, with no refusal for ‘pre-existing conditions’? It looks like your insurance company may not have to cover you if you get Ebola. U.S. and British insurance companies have begun writing Ebola exclusions into standard policies to cover hospitals, event organizers, and other businesses vulnerable to local disruptions.

While it is estimated that expenditures to treat the original Dallas Ebola patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, were approximately $100,000 an hour (though he passed anyway), it looks like insurance companies won’t be footing the bill.

President Obama originally refused to set up travel restrictions in and out of West Africa, too, even though the governments latest scare tactics and the CDC’s ineptitude have resulted in insurance companies creating new policies which exclude Ebola care. Renewals will also become costlier for companies opting to insure business travel to West Africa or to cover the risk of losses from quarantine shutdowns at home.

Why I Will Not Submit To Medical Martial Law

One of the most dangerous philosophical contentions even amongst liberty movement activists is the conundrum of government force and prevention during times of imminent pandemic. All of us at one time or another have had this debate. If a legitimate viral threat existed and threatened to infect and kill millions of Americans, is it then acceptable for the government to step in, remove civil liberties, enforce quarantines, and stop people from spreading the disease? After all, during a viral event, the decisions of each individual can truly have a positive or negative effect on the rest of society, right? One out of control (or “lone wolf”) citizen/terrorist could reignite a biological firestorm, so, should we not turn to government and forgo certain freedoms in order to achieve the greater good for the greater number?

If the government in question was a proven and honorable institution, then I would say pro-Medical Martial Law arguments might have a leg to stand on. However, this is not the case. In my view, medical martial law is absolutely unacceptable under ANY circumstances, including Ebola, in light of the fact that our current government will be the predominant cause of viral outbreak. That is to say, you DO NOT turn to the government for help when the government is the cause of the problem.

Shock Interview: Ebola Czar Says Population Growth Is Top Issue Facing the World

population-growth

Since his appointment as America’s Ebola Czar it has been revealed that not only does Ron Klain have no medical experience to speak of, but that his position as the head of coordinating efforts to stop Ebola is just a stepping stone to something bigger and better. The administration says that they need someone with management experience to ensure containment operations are executed effectively. That would be all fine and dandy except for a shocking interview that has made its way onto the internet in which Klain is asked about the top issue facing the world.

It turns out that the new Ebola Czar, whose responsibility is to quash the spread of Ebola and save lives, is seemingly an advocate of population and resource control.

I think the top issue facing the world today is how to deal with the continuing growing population in the world and all of the resource demands it places on the world.

And burgeoning populations in Africa and Asia that lack the resources to have a health, happy life. I think we’ve got to find a way to make the world work for everyone.
