  • FRN – Federal Reserve Note or Federal Redistribution Notice?

    The following article has far reaching implications for our future. Based on the price of gold and our total national debt, our gold reserves account for .0352 cents for every FRN. This means that if we revalued our currency based on a tangible asset (gold only in this case), you would receive $3.52 for every $10,000 of your assets. In a practical scenario, the United States would use silver reserves and property to augment the conversion of your property. This article in conjunction with the unprecedented land grab that the federal government has undertaken should make every sentient American take...

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 31, 2008 – The Iraqi police have achieved operational proficiency, allowing coalition trainers to shift their focus to professional development, an officer said yesterday. “We’re continuing to develop big numbers of recruits, but at the same time we’re also starting to add to the professional training,” U.S. Army Col. Bryan Bequette, director of training support for the Civilian Police Assistance Training Team, told bloggers during a teleconference. “Investigator courses, follow on leadership courses, management course … as we start working on professionalism of the force along and in parallel with the size of it.” Bequette is in command...

    ROOT CAUSES OF THE ECONOMIC MELTDOWN 1) THE CREATION OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE [FED]. This is centralized banking as practiced in the U.S. The birth of the FED was signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson (D) on Dec. 24, 1913. Reflecting on this he later said, “I am a most unhappy man; unwittingly I have ruined my country….” The FED is a private consortium of bankers the heads of which are appointed by the executive branch of government. Many people believe that their first loyalty lies with bankers—including Wall Street bankers and foreign bankers—more than with the American people....

    March 8, 1965 -- The first Stockholm Conference on Vietnam is held in Stockholm, Sweden. The conference is the creation of Romesh Chandra, chairman of the KGB-funded World Peace Council. Former Soviet bloc spy chief Ion Mihai Pacepa will later describe it as "a permanent international organization to aid or to conduct operations to help Americans dodge the draft or defect, to demoralize its army with anti-American propaganda, to conduct protests, demonstrations, and boycotts, and to sanction anyone connected with the war." The operation is staffed by undercover intelligence officers and funded to the tune of about $15 million per...

To that end, FAA has called for a national day of rallies on 9-11 in support of these issues and created the NDVAT Resolution which already...

    Move over, MoveOn.org -- new competition is coming. An array of polemical, political sites is debuting online, utilizing the interactive features of the Internet, and promising to provide a major outlet for visceral attacks on both major candidates for the White House this fall, President George W. Bush and -- presumably -- Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass). Back in 1988, independent attack ads emerged on TV and helped shape the perception of Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, the Democratic nominee for president, as weak on crime. The ads touted the story of felon Willie Horton, let out of jail during the...

    "How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?" reads a Doonesbury cartoon character aloud. "Who said that?" asks the reader’s roommate. "John Kerry. To the Senate Foreign Relations Committee..." "Too little, too late," replies the roommate; thinking the quote refers to Iraq. "...in 1971," finishes the reader. The message from Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau is obvious enough: America's military action in Iraq is a mistake, like our failed effort in Vietnam. Our soldiers there are dying for nothing. The decent thing to do is bring them home immediately. And John Kerry, a...
