  • US and North Korea’s $6 trillion in mineral wealth (we're spoiling for war over rare-earth minerals)

    Iran's Press TV ^ | April 22, 2013 | Ramin Mazaheri, Press TV, Seoul
    While oil has been the motivating factor for US-led wars in the Middle East, many are wondering what might be behind their constant belligerence towards Pyongyang. But while North Korea may not have oil, the estimated value of their mineral deposits is a staggering $6 trillion, according to the South Korean government. North Korea is sitting on world’s second-largest supply of rare earth metals, which are essential for modern electronics like laptops, smartphones, solar electricity panels and precision missiles. The US, along with their allies Japan, Taiwan and South Korea, three major producers of sophisticated electronics, are surely interested in...
  • The Constitution, Vattel, and ‘Natural Born Citizen’: What Our Framers Knew

    American Clarion ^ | July 18, 2012 | Publius Huldah
    We have been visited recently with several very silly articles which assert that Marco Rubio is a “natural born Citizen” within the meaning of Art. II, §1, cl. 5, U.S. Constitution (ratified 1789), and hence is qualified to be President: Bret Baier (Fox News) asserts that Congress can define (and presumably redefine, from time to time) terms in the Constitution by means of law. Chet Arthur in American Thinker quips that “the original meaning of ‘natural born citizen’” is determined by reference to “The Heritage Guide to the Constitution” and to the definition of “citizen” at Sec. 1 of the...

    Free Republic ^ | Feb 12, 2010 | Pat Buchannen
    No, it is not 1860 again. But with all the talk of the 10th Amendment, nullification and interposition, states rights and secession -- following Gov. Rick Perry's misstatement that Texas, on entering the Union in 1845, reserved in its constitution a right to secede -- one might think so. Chalk up another one for those Tea Party activists who exploded in cheers when Sister Sarah brought up the dread word in endorsing Rick Perry in the primary. Looking back in American history, however, these ideas, these sentiments, decried as insane inside the Beltway, were once as American as "The Midnight...
  • The Truth About Pearl Harbor: A Debate [Did FDR know about Japan's plans in advance?]

    The Independent Institute ^ | 30 January 2003 | Robert B. Stinnett, Stephen Budiansky
    Introductory Remarks: On December 7, 1941, U.S. military installations at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii were attacked by the Imperial Japanese Navy. Could this tragic event that resulted in over 3,000 Americans killed and injured in a single two-hour attack have been averted? After 16 years of uncovering documents through the Freedom of Information Act, journalist and historian Robert Stinnett charges in his book, Day of Deceit, that U.S. government leaders at the highest level not only knew that a Japanese attack was imminent, but that they had deliberately engaged in policies intended to provoke the attack, in order to draw...

    The appointment of a Secretary of the Treasury is just that, an appointment to a position which is NOT a cabinet position in any administration. The S.o.T. is the [governor] appointed to the World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF). He is not an officer of the United States, is not a cabinet member and does not represent the interests of the United States. His position is as liaison between the federal government and the IMF. His obligation is to the IMF, not to the United States. The secretary of the Treasury is not sworn into office as cabinet members are,...

    Naturally those who enjoyed (and created) all the “art” and pop culture used to demonize and dehumanize George W. Bush (whoops!) are now crying “racism” with the turning of the tables. They’re worried, and this hollow cry is all they got because who knows better the power of this kind of imagery than those who have been using it for decades to further their goals of enslaving entire populations under the cruel yoke of Big Government. Yesterday, when the “L.A. Weekly” went all crybaby over the Obama-Joker poster, they must have known that they themselves had published a cover portraying...

    ..."They charged that many of the new cabin crew, for example, were graduates of religious Imam Hatip schools rather than of technical universities - Imam Hatip schools were, the pilots said, classified as 'trade schools' and the Imam Hatip alumni were therefore 'camouflaged' as trade school graduates. This is no trivial claim, if true: the main responsibility of cabin crew is not to serve meals, but to handle in-flight emergencies or evacuations"

    Looks like even the patchouli-stained radicals of Earth First! have been co-opted by The System, shedding their previous role as an Elite Vanguard Provoking a Crisis Of Consumer Capitalism to Save Mother Earth to being mere endorsers–on their blog–of corporatist DNC candidates for President of the United States. It’s been a long eight years. We’ve all suffered under the mantle of greed, warmongering, corruption and unchecked executive powers brought upon us by the Bush administration, and things have been looking pretty bleak for Americans for a while now. So, it’s no wonder that we’re eager for something entirely different: something...

    For Joseph Farah, editor and founder of WND, the 2008 presidential election is not a case of "either-or," it's a case of "neither-nor." The author of "None of the Above" doesn't see the race so much as a contest between John McCain and Barack Obama. He sees it more like a McCain-Obama ticket. And the only real choice Americans have is to reject it. "There is a real choice in the 2008 presidential election," he says. "The choice is to vote for none of the above. It's the only choice that makes sense. It's the only choice that will make...

    This guy is becoming even more of an idiot than I thought. It's ok to want out of Iraq, but it's another thing to lie about it in order to get votes. He was properly smacked by McCain for his comments. To which Ron Paul supporters tried to boo McCain, but were drowned out with cheers for McCain as McCain schooled Paul on the facts of Vietnam. I will post video as soon as I have it, and the latest numbers of a decline in violence in Iraq. Which Paul says is because the Brits are pulling out of Basra....

    HAVANA (Reuters) - Ailing Cuban leader Fidel Castro said the U.S. government misinformed Americans and the world about 9/11, echoing conspiracy theories about the terror attacks against the United States six years ago. In an essay read by a Cuban television presenter on Tuesday night, Castro said the Pentagon was hit by a rocket, not a plane, because no traces were found of its passengers. "Today one knows there was deliberate misinformation," wrote Castro, who has not appeared in public since July of 2006 when life-threatening surgery for a secret illness forced him to hand over power to his brother...

    VENEZUELAN military officers have started classes in unconventional warfare to repel an invasion left-wing President Hugo Chavez warns Washington is planning. Snipers draped in foliage and civilian reservists armed with knives, catapults and handguns crawled out of a hidden tunnel in a mock demonstration as an instructor lectured officers on resistance tactics. Captains joined lieutenants straining behind a cordon to see another soldier camouflaged inside tree perch as he fired a bow and peppered a uniformed dummy target with arrows.

    At Ford's Theater in Washington, D.C., John Wilkes Booth, an actor and Confederate sympathizer, fatally wounds President Abraham Lincoln. The attack came only five days after Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his massive army at Appomattox, effectively ending the American Civil War. Booth, who remained in the North during the war despite his Confederate sympathies, initially plotted to capture President Lincoln and take him to Richmond, the Confederate capital. However, on March 20, 1865, the day of the planned kidnapping, the president failed to appear at the spot where Booth and his six fellow conspirators lay in wait. Two...

    (CNSNews.com) - The Committee to ReDefeat the President, a federal political action committee also known as ReDefeatBush.com, is organizing several protest rallies this week, before Members of Congress gather in a joint session on Thursday to count the electoral votes from the November 2004 election. ReDefeatBush promises to examine the "illegitimate election" of President Bush; and it says it will offer a "declaration of intent to reclaim our republic." Among other things, the group insists that Ohio's 20 electoral votes were won by John Kerry. "We expect the electoral votes of four states to be challenged and for the...

    Rumsfeld says 9-11 plane 'shot down' in Pennsylvania During surprise Christmas Eve trip, defense secretary contradicts official story Posted: December 27, 2004 1:00 a.m. Eastern  © 2004 WorldNetDaily.com WASHINGTON – Ever since Sept. 11, 2001, there have been questions about Flight 93, the ill-fated plane that crashed in the rural fields of Pennsylvania. The official story has been that passengers on the United Airlines flight rushed the hijackers in an effort to prevent them from crashing the plane into a strategic target – possibly the U.S. Capitol. During his surprise Christmas Eve trip to Iraq, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld referred to...

    US national security adviser Condoleezza Rice did not have the compassion needed to be secretary of state, Australian Greens leader Bob Brown said. Senator Brown criticised Dr Rice, who has been nominated by US President George W Bush to take over from outgoing US Secretary of State Colin Powell. "Condoleezza Rice is not a warm human being," Senator Brown told reporters. "She's George W Bush's echo. "But she's lacking the compassion we need to see in the office of secretary of state for the most powerful nation on the planet." Senator Brown said there was a ruthlessness about Dr Rice...

    PETA to cannibals: 'Don't let them eat steak' - Wesley J. Smith Sunday, December 21, 2003 When Ingrid Newkirk, the founder of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals infamously asserted in 1986, "There is no rational basis for asserting that a human being has special rights: A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy," few believed that she meant it literally. Surely, people thought, Newkirk and PETA understand that humans have far greater moral worth than animals. Actually, they don't. In fact, it now appears that PETA's moral views have become so distorted and misanthropic...
