    "I'm worried, and I think more bad stuff is on the way. There are huge, right-wing operations behind this. They've got money; they've got corporate interest behind them. I think there are professional folks out there agitating people with doomsday scenarios," Michael Huttner tells Inside the Beltway.
  • Swine Flu's Worst Case Scenario: Paranoia or Preparedness?

    08/10/2009 10:09:51 AM PDT · by mmanager · 23 replies · 898+ views ^ | August 10, 2009 | Katie Cobb
    An uncontrollable, deadly virus ravages America, shutting down civilian institutions and triggering martial law. Vaccinations are compulsory, and there are mass quarantines throughout the country. It's the stuff of Hollywood — but rumors that it could be real are spreading like the flu in the blogosphere, where some people are loudly expressing their fears that the federal government is seriously considering such measures as it maps out a worst-case-scenario response to the swine flu pandemic. During the bird flu scare of 2005, the Bush administration added novel forms of influenza — including the swine flu — to the official list...

    "Let's be very honest about what this is about. This is not about bashing Democrats. It's not about taxes. They have no idea what the Boston Tea party was about. They don't know their history at all. It's about hating a black man in the White House," she said on MSNBC's "The Countdown" with Keith Olbermann Thursday evening. "This is racism straight up and is nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks. There is no way around that." Janeane Garofalo received much criticism regarding her comments about the teaparty movement. Some even tried to figure out why she could say...

    Offbeat: Paranoid lawsuit attempts to link Apple to Italian mafia By Neil Hughes Published: 08:10 AM EST A new lawsuit from a Beverly Hills, Calif., man alleges that Apple conspired with the Italian mafia to secretly track him, transmit threatening messages to his iPod, and insert the word "herpes" into the song "Still Tippin'" by Mike Jones. Not just his iPod, Gregory McKenna is convinced that many things in his life were bugged, including his bedroom, living room, upstairs bathroom and Toyota Camry. McKenna alleges in his lawsuit that two iPods he owned – an iPod shuffle bought on eBay...
  • Has Palin Derangement Syndrome Hit The GOP?

    07/07/2009 9:37:11 PM PDT · by YoungGunConservativeRadio · 29 replies · 915+ views
    Last night on YGCRadio, a caller seemed to be suffering from the same dysfunction that viewers of MSNoBodyCares suffer from – namely Palin Derangement Syndrome. Our caller is already so in the bag for Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty it caused me to speculate if he resides under Tim’s desk! The exchange got me to wondering if the GOP is riddled with this same dysfunction. It also caused me to do some deep analysis of Gov. Palin’s surprise resignation. On the resignation I have come up with a theory*. It is my belief that Gov. Palin will take a stab at...

    Scott Roeder, the killer of abortion doctor George Tiller, observed Sabbath from Friday night through Saturday, according to his ex-wife. But he apparently was part of a church based on the Old Testament, and not Jewish. Here's an AP story interviewing his ex-wife: Scott Roeder's family life began unraveling more than a decade ago when he got involved with anti-government groups, and then became "very religious in an Old Testament, eye-for-an-eye way," his former wife said ...Lindsey Roeder said from her home in a Kansas City suburb that the early years of the marriage were good and that Scott Roeder...

    They say government scientists messed with their minds. Now, veterans of secret psychedelic tests want answers. Their stories are a staple of conspiracy culture: broken men, suffering hallucinations and near-total amnesia, who say they are victims of secret government mind-control experiments. Think Liev Schreiber in The Manchurian Candidate or Mel Gibson in Conspiracy Theory. Journalists are a favorite target for the paranoid delusions of this population. So is Gordon Erspamer—and the San Francisco lawyer's latest case isn't helping him to fend off the tinfoil-hat crowd. He has filed suit against the CIA and the US Army on behalf of the...

    May 15, 2003- A jumbo jet - larger than either of the planes that exploded into the twin towers - flew low along the Hudson River and buzzed the Statue of Liberty yesterday before veering toward the heart of midtown. ...The plane was carrying U.S. troops on their way home from Iraq. But almost no one watching from below knew that - and the jittery city braced for the worst. Mayor Bloomberg got only a two-minute heads-up from the Federal Aviation Administration that they had given the pilot special permission for the unusual flyby. "Considering the world we live in...
  • With Swine Flu on the Rise, Should We Stop Shaking Hands?

    It’s expected. At a job interview, during an introduction, when saying goodbye . . . The handshake is as American as apple pie. But -- eewww -- just imagine where that person’s hand might may have been before being clutched into yours! Touching a subway rail ... flushing a toilet ... changing a diaper ... maybe blowing a nose … As a variant of swine flu H1N1 makes its way around the world, escalating the fears of millions and prompting many to wear face masks, perhaps it's time to ask: Is it time to stop the handshake?

    DHS Chair Janet Napolitano and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack took pains to avoid using "swine flu" or "pig flu" today, opting instead to call the virus by its given name "Obama's Flu", H1N1. Look. I don't care what they call it, but let's fix the problem before it becomes a worldwide pandemic! You can put lipstick on a swine, but it's still killing people!

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano rejected calls to close the U.S.-Mexico border in response to the swine flu outbreak, saying the costs to both countries at this point outweigh the medical benefits. "That's something that always can be considered," Napolitano told NBC's "Today" show Tuesday, before adding that the virus has already spread to several states across the United States. "You have to look at what the costs of that are. We literally have thousands of trucks and lots of commerce that cross that border. We have food products and other things that have to go across that border. So...

    Former presidential candidate Alan Keyes has given perhaps his most dire warning yet, saying that the Obama administration is preparing to stage terror attacks, declare martial law and cancel the 2012 elections, which is why they are demonizing their political enemies as criminals and terrorists. Keyes is best known for his performance during the 2000 Republican presidential debates, when he was accredited by many media outlets as being the clear winner during a series of debates with George W. Bush and John McCain. “It’s obvious that they will stop at nothing,” Keyes told attendees of a reception in Fort Wayne,...

    In the last few months, there have been several cases of mass murders on U.S. soil. On April 3, 2009, Jiverly Wong went into an American Civic Association and murdered 13 people. Wong wounded over 20 others and allegedly held hostages for hours before killing himself. The forty one year old had been going to the Civic Association to attend language lessons, and was angered over losing his job. He was teased due to to his lack of English language skill as well. These massacres follow a predictable pattern, and it is certain that there will be more attacks as...

    The White House announced last week that the President "does not believe the Fairness Doctrine should be reinstated." The Fairness Doctrine, which the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) -- acting under Ronald Reagan -- repealed in 1987, would dictate that broadcasters cover issues of public importance and devote equal time to both sides of controversial issues. On its face, the administration's recent comments seem to deflate hopes of the expanding roster of groups and politicians calling for revival of the Doctrine. The American Spectator reported recently that Henry Waxman (D-CA) already met with the FCC staff to discuss ways to...

    The actor, 46, is believed to have alerted the FBI and begun increasing security around him and his family. It is thought he received clear warnings from groups opposed to his religious organisation. The Mail on Sunday reported that Cruise now lives in a separate location to his wife Katie Holmes and their two-year-old daughter Suri, and that the couple travel in bomb-proof cars. The newspaper added that other protesters have been angered by Cruise's decision to star in Valkyrie, in which he plays Claus von Stauffenberg, a German army officer who attempted to assassinate Adolf Hitler in 1944.

    The decision on granting a hearing challenging President-elect Barack Obama's U.S. citizenship is still pending. The "Washington Times" reports that the U.S. Supreme Court held a private conference Friday morning to discuss whether to take up a lawsuit but it was not on the list of court orders for the day. According to the "Times" a Supreme Court spokesman said the decision to hear the case will most likely be announced next week.

    If you think they're out to get you, you're not alone. Paranoia, once assumed to afflict only schizophrenics, may be a lot more common than previously thought. According to British psychologist Daniel Freeman, nearly one in four Londoners regularly have paranoid thoughts. Freeman is a paranoia expert at the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College and the author of a book on the subject. Experts say there is a wide spectrum of paranoia, from the dangerous delusions that drive schizophrenics to violence to the irrational fears many people have daily. "We are now starting to discover that madness is human...

    WASHINGTON (Map, News) - A Republican congressman from Georgia is calling President-elect Obama a Marxist and warning that he might be planning to form a Gestapo-like security force so he can rule as a dictator. Two-term Rep. Paul Broun of Athens cited a July speech that has circulated on the Internet in which Obama called for a civilian force to take some of the national security burden off the military.
