STEPHEN KING ON THE NEW WORLD ORDER

I.M.F. Chief Suggests Look at New Reserve Currency

FEBRUARY 28, 2010

WASHINGTON — The chief of the International Monetary Fund said Friday that the organization should reorient itself to better detect systemic risks to the global economy and quickly step in with emergency loans when financial crises emerge.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn says the I.M.F. needs to develop better tools for financial surveillance.
The I.M.F. leader, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, also floated the idea of creating a global reserve currency that could serve as an alternative to the dollar.

After a speech at the I.M.F. headquarters, Mr. Strauss-Kahn said in response to a question about the fiscal crisis in Greece that the fund would be “happy to help if asked” but that the European Union appeared able to resolve the crisis on its own.

“The Europeans, especially the members of the euro zone, want to try to deal with the problems themselves,” Mr. Strauss-Kahn, a former French finance minister, said. “I perfectly respect this.”
The I.M.F. has collaborated with the European Union and the European Central Bank in recent days, sending experts to Athens, but the Europeans have taken the lead on demanding that the Greek government impose cuts in public spending and other austerity measures.

SO... YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT 911? - - - - PART I

Briefing Number 1
In June 2006, Muckraker Report investigative reporter Ed Haas contacted the FBI to ask why 9/11 was not specifically mentioned on Bin Laden's wanted page on the FBI website.
“The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden's most wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11," he was told by FBI agent Rex Tomb.

Briefing Number 2
Sibel Edmonds was dismissed after she revealed that the government had foreknowledge of plans to attack American cities using planes as bombs as early as April 2001.
During a court case that arose out of her dismissal and the evidence surrounding 9/11, reporters were barred from recording any details of the case, and Edmonds herself was barred from even entering the court room. When Edmonds' case was dismissed in May 2005, no reason was provided, and no opinion cited.
http://www.justacitizen.com/articles_documents/May14-05-Gagged%20but%20not%20Dead.htm
During an interview on the Mike Malloy Show In July 2009, Edmonds stated, "To say that since the fall of the Soviet Union we ceased all of our intimate relationship with Bin Laden and the Taliban - those things can be proven as lies, very easily, based on the information they classified in my case, because we did carry very intimate relationship with these people, and it involves Central Asia, all the way up to September 11."

Briefing Number 3
The following is a quote from Mayor Giuliani during an interview on 9/11 with Peter Jennings for ABC News. “I went down to the scene and we set up headquarters at 75 Barkley Street, which was right there with the Police Commissioner, the Fire Commissioner, the Head of Emergency Management, and we were operating out of there when we were told that the World Trade Center was going to collapse. And it did collapse before we could actually get out of the building, so we were trapped in the building for 10, 15 minutes, and finally found an exit and got out, walked north, and took a lot of people with us.”
WHO TOLD HIM THIS??? To this day, the answer to this question remains unanswered, completely ignored and emphatically DENIED by Mayor Giuliani on several public occasions.

Fashionable Sterility: 'ball snipper'

Fashionable Sterility
February 23, 2010

Yesterday I had a conversation with a co-worker who admitted getting his 'balls sniped'.
Said he was thinking about it for a while, and thinks it for the best.
During the conversation he mentioned the doctors schedule for 'ball snipping' (sterilizing one's self)
"He said he gets about 5 guys every Friday who come in to get snipped"
"it's fashionable 
   to be sterile."
Hmmm. interesting statistic. Also reminds me of eugenics operations in the 20's & 30's, where those who were not seen as positive influences on society were ordered to be sterilized.

 However, now sterilization is done voluntarily, it's fashionable to be sterile. we have been slowly brainwashed into thinking that life is merely something to be turned on and off, of course there are some who see this as a reasonable way to avoid anymore children. The rate at which people are voluntarily sterilizing themselves is amazing, it's astounding. Meanwhile those who have slowly engineered this culture of thinking are now laughing at your willingness to further process this system of 'sterility for the masses'.
Really shows something about our society and where we're at intellectually.
Micheal Creighton wrote about Eugenics/sterilization and warned about it's dangers.

IT DOESN'T MATCH UP; BIZZAR JOE STACK

The long, rambling rant posted on a website eerily reflected the angry populist sentiments that have swept the country in the past year. In it, a Joe Stack inveighed against intrusive Big Brother government, corrupt corporate giants, irrational taxes, as well as the “puppet” George Bush. “I choose not to pretend that business as usual won’t continue,” he wrote. “I have just had enough. I can only hope that the numbers quickly get too big to be white washed and ignored that the American zombies wake up and revolt.” And then Stack apparently got in a Piper Cherokee PA-28 at about 9:40 a.m. at an airport in suburban Austin, Texas, and flew the plane into a commercial building housing an IRS office, killing himself, seriously injuring two people on the ground and starting a conflagration that lasted several hours. – Time Magazine

Dominant Social Theme: Too much talk of freedom leads to terrorism.

Free-Market Analysis: That didn’t take long. The tragic incident of a man flying a plane into an IRS building in Texas almost immediately conjured up articles in the mainstream press expressing concern over the violent impacts of libertarian and free market rhetoric. Joe Stack apparently set his house on fire with his family in it (they barely escaped) and then flew a plane into a building, but the mainstream press doesn’t seem very concerned with the human dimension. It is the rhetorical arguments that fascinate. Here’s some more from the Time Magazine story that was obviously rushed into print, on the Internet anyway:

After the fireball … the black-glass windows blew out and the Venetian blinds starting flapping in the wind. The building houses regional offices of the IRS and other federal agencies. As one unidentified office worker from the building said, “If you have problems with the IRS, this is where you come in person to work them out.” According to news reports, 199 IRS employees work in the building, and all are accounted for. Toward the end of what appears to be his final note, Stack wrote, “Well, Mr. Big Brother IRS man, let’s try something different; take my pound of flesh and sleep well.” (See the making of the Tea Party movement.)

BOYCOTT AUDI: SUPER BOWL ADS GREEN POLICE

February 8, 2010
Incandescent light bulbs, plastic bags, orange peels, Styrofoam coffee cups, Jacuzzi hot tubs — these are crimes against the environment, according to automaker Audi. On Sunday, during the Super Bowl gladiatorial event, Audi ran a series of ads depicting an eco Gestapo cracking down on citizens engaged in serious crimes against the environment.
One of the ads depicts a police checkpoint where the Fourth Amendment is wantonly violated. In the recent past, such illegal checkpoints were used to find drunk drivers. In Al Gore’s Brave New World, they will be used to search for criminals drinking out of plastic bottles.
The “lighthearted” ads are designed to send a strong message — there are green crimes and it is acceptable for government to respond in police state fashion.
Governments around the world have already established Green Cops. In the UK, the Green Gestapo have the authority to call on the Environmental Agency’s national network of hundreds of pollution inspectors. New York City’s Department of Environmental Conservation has a team of twenty officers called the “Green Police” and they have the authority to enforce environmental regulations and issue citations to environmental violators. For instance, the Green Police have the authority to pull over vehicles that are not complying with emission standards.
At first glance it appears Audi is merely cashing in on the eco frenzy to sell its low emission automobiles. The larger agenda is to get the plebs accustomed to the idea that their lifestyles are crimes against the earth and in response government must tax, fine, and even arrest violators. It is part of a propaganda effort to soften citizens up to a global carbon tax and fascist police state methods in order to enforce the a new green orthodoxy.

TRUTH; SARAH PALIN TEA PARTY DINNER A DISASTER: THE PALIN TEA PARTY HIJACK & THE FED


Constitution – Document originally conceived to ensure the people’s rights are not trampled on by any government. (free speech, right to assemble. 2nd amendment. ect.. ) Written by T. Jefferson and many others after living in the British Government’s tyrannical rule of Europe, and not wanting the same fate for the newly established ‘new world’ aka, America.
Tea Party People – these folks are concerned that the constitution is being destroyed. (Too bad they didn’t show up when the constitution really started to be ripped to shreds, back in the early 90’s.) None the less, the Tea party movement has now been high jacked by Sarah Palin & Glenn Beck and the Corporate controlled mass media outlet known as Fox NEWS or Faux News as I’ve seen it called. There’s even a website called ‘we watch fox so you don’t have to’ posting many clips from the famous ‘news’ outlet.
Tea party people have been around for a while but groups of them started voicing their concerns back when Bush was in office.
For 8 years Fox News has been discredited by continually pushing the ‘Bush’ agenda of the Patriot Act and rendition, illegal wars, torture, wire taps... ect
Fox news cannot be trusted to deliver on any issue. I echo that sentiment directed to CNN aswell. 
Glenn Beck FRAUD...



The Fact that Glenn Beck was on CNN when Bush was in office and then jumped ship to FOX news when Obama came into office is indeed interesting to note, Beck is being used by FOX News to simply confuse and destroy the tea party name, which in my opinion, have their heart in the right place but they are trapped in the FALSE left/right paradigm. 
As previously posted here on Northwest Herald is a video of Beck FAKE crying for a photo shoot. MESSAGE TO THIS PHONY BROADCASTER... the jig is up!
And now we see Sarah Palin, taking over the tea party movement, as recently seen in her speech yesterday. Why? Who asked her to be a figure head? Is this used to discredit the movement?  To me, it sure is
If a fat cat Republican gets in office after Obama’s 4 yrs are up, the cycle will simply continue. The violations of civil liberties will continue unabated. I’m surprised that Obama hasn’t repealed the Patriot act, the illegal wars and so on but so is life he's merely a man, excuse me a lawyer politician, until the general public realize that both parties are owned and controlled by the foreign off-shore banks nothing will change.
Unless…
The True focus of ‘anger’ by the tea party patriots and all Democrats and republicans left/right alike, must be geared to the Private Bank that started this entire vicious cycle of Democrats vs Republicans. Using the people as a tool to get at each others’ throats. The anger should not be directed at the president as he is simply a puppet of the big banks.
THE PRIVATE FOR PROFIT – “FEDERAL RESERVE BANK



Started in Dec 22, 1913. The Federal reserve bank has continually destroyed the ‘great’ nation of America, molding it to a sort of imperialist empire hell bent of destroying the sovereignty of not only the good ol’ US of A but all nations of the planet collectively through the G20, World Bank and IMF.
support HR 1207 - Audit the private Federal Reserve.



AP article on the TEA PARTY Dinner last night.


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Sarah Palin, in a speech that was short on ideas but big on enthusiasm, took aim at President Barack Obama and the Democrats, telling a gathering of "tea party" activists that America is ripe for another revolution.
Noting his party's dismal showing in elections since Obama moved into the White House a year ago with talk of hope and promises of change, Palin asked the gathering: "How's that hope-y, change-y stuff workin' out for you?"

OBSESSION OVER SPORTS STATS: 'mass mental illness'

Super Bowl Sunday: Scientifically Crafted Mass Mental Illness


February 7, 2010

As the Roman Empire drew to a close, the poet and satirist Juvenal wrote about an infantilized populace that had surrendered its birthright of political involvement.

“Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties,” he wrote, “for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions — everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses.” The Latin phrase panem et circenses is often translated as “bread and games.”
In America, circa 2010, the phrase bread and circuses, or bread and games, has become what passes for our national anthem. The masses long ago abdicated their civic duties and have since forsaken the Constitution — and are in fact almost completely ignorant of it — and have abandoned their birthright of liberty in favor of mindless and indeed infantilized entertainment.

It is not merely the gladiatorial Super Bowl. It is an entire popular culture steeped in meaningless celebrity worship. Far too many Americans reject political involvement — their birthright — for a vicarious and perverse obsession with the minutiae of manufactured stars and starlets.

It is no mistake Aldous Huxley used the phrase in Brave New World Revisited as an example of one of the ideas he used as a theme in Brave New World.

Steve Bonta, in an article published in The New American, compares and contrasts Huxley and Orwell:
What Huxley understood more acutely than Orwell is that it is easier to enslave a people by seduction than by coercion. In the words of social critic Neil Postman, “what Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one…. As Huxley remarked…, the civil libertarians and rationalists who are ever on the alert to oppose tyranny ‘failed to take into account man’s almost infinite appetite for distractions.’ In 1984, Huxley added, people are controlled by inflicting pain. In Brave New World, they are controlled by inflicting pleasure.”
The Super Bowl event is a scientifically created mass mental illness that exploits man’s almost infinite appetite for distractions. It is the bellwether of tyranny.

GOOGLE IS PIMPING US OUT TO THE NSA

The Washington Post is reporting that internet search giant Google, and America’s electronic security agency, the NSA, will be teaming up to analyze data from the recent cyber attack that is believed to have originated from China. Neither the NSA nor Google is commenting on the partnership, however the Post has an anonymous source who claims, “the alliance is being designed to allow the two organizations to share critical information without violating Google’s policies or laws that protect the privacy of Americans’ online communications.” The Post went on to say, “the deal does not mean the NSA will be viewing users’ searches or e-mail accounts or that Google will be sharing proprietary data.” What do you think? Does the thought of the NSA working with Google make you feel more secure?
Google to enlist NSA to help it ward off cyberattacks

By Ellen Nakashima
Thursday, February 4, 2010; A01




The world's largest Internet search company and the world's most powerful electronic surveillance organization are teaming up in the name of cybersecurity.
Under an agreement that is still being finalized, the National Security Agency would help Google analyze a major corporate espionage attack that the firm said originated in China and targeted its computer networks, according to cybersecurity experts familiar with the matter. The objective is to better defend Google -- and its users -- from future attack.
Google and the NSA declined to comment on the partnership. But sources with knowledge of the arrangement, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the alliance is being designed to allow the two organizations to share critical information without violating Google's policies or laws that protect the privacy of Americans' online communications. The sources said the deal does not mean the NSA will be viewing users' searches or e-mail accounts or that Google will be sharing proprietary data.
The partnership strikes at the core of one of the most sensitive issues for the government and private industry in the evolving world of cybersecurity: how to balance privacy and national security interests.


On Tuesday, Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Blair called the Google attacks, which the company acknowledged in January, a "wake-up call." Cyberspace cannot be protected, he said, without a "collaborative effort that incorporates both the U.S. private sector and our international partners."
But achieving collaboration is not easy, in part because private companies do not trust the government to keep their secrets and in part because of concerns that collaboration can lead to continuous government monitoring of private communications. Privacy advocates, concerned about a repeat of the NSA's warrantless interception of Americans' phone calls and e-mails after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, say information-sharing must be limited and closely overseen.

Cell Phones Cause Brain Cancer, Scientists Warn

Cell Phones Cause Brain Cancer, Scientists Warn

by David Gutierrez, staff writer

(NaturalNews) A report issued by the International Electromagnetic Field Collaborative and endorsed by 43 scientists from 13 countries has reviewed the evidence linking cell phone use to brain tumors, and refuting the methodology of a forthcoming industry-funded study expected to give the phones a clean bill of health.

"I fear we will see a tsunami of brain tumors, although it is too early to see that now since the tumors have a 30-year latency," study author Lloyd Morgan said. "I pray I'm wrong, but brace yourself."

Among the research cited in the study was a recent study by a Swedish team of scientists that found a 420 percent higher risk of brain cancer among people who had started using cellular or cordless phones as teenagers. Older analog phones, which are now mostly off the market, had been found to increase cancer risk by 700 percent.


Watch this CBS NEWS story about cell phone causing cancer: 
 http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=3843850n




Because children are especially vulnerable to radiation, the report recommends that parents not allow their children under the age of 18 to use mobile phones except in emergencies, or to sleep with cellular phones under their pillows. It recommends using corded land lines whenever possible, and using cellular phones mostly as answering machines, turning them on only to check messages and return calls. Use of cell phones inside buildings or in cars increases cancer risk, as it increases the radiation a phone must emit to function. Use of text messages and non-wireless headsets can reduce cancer risk. The report also advises against carrying cell phones against the body, even in pockets.

"Some countries are already banning cell phones over health concerns, with France saying children in elementary schools can only use them for texting," Morgan said.

The report also sets out 11 flaws in the forthcoming Interphone study, a study on cell phones and health being prepared by the wireless industry in 13 different countries. These flaws include the exclusion of non-cellular cordless phones (which also emit radiation), children and young adults (the most vulnerable demographics) from the study, the exclusion of certain types of tumors, and the exclusion of participants who died or were too sick to answer questions.

Was swine flu ever a real threat?

One European scientist alleges a WHO conspiracy for drug firms

It's been a good week for drug companies and an even better one for conspiracy theorists.
Last week, angered by the bumper rise in profits being reported by vaccine manufacturers as the incidence of swine flu plummets, the former head of health at the Council for Europe accused the World Health Organization of "faking" the pandemic.

"It looks like the WHO is under the influence of industry," Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg told a hearing in Strasbourg, France. "It was stated in panic-stricken terms that this was a flu that could threaten humanity. This is why billions of medications were bought."
Exhibit No. 1, Wodarg says, is the WHO's decision to soften its definition of a pandemic last April, shortly before the emergence of the H1N1 virus. By eliminating the requirement that influenza pandemics should cause "enormous morbidity and death," the WHO provoked an unnecessary "scare" that conveniently triggered the activation of "sleeping" contracts with vaccine manufacturers. Yet since the WHO's declaration of a pandemic in June, swine flu has caused just 14,000 deaths worldwide -- a fraction of the number who die from seasonal flu every year. This month, Britain's Department of Health reported that cases had fallen to such a low rate that it was cancelling its weekly press briefings.

CIA TO STAGE ANOTHER TERROR ATTACK ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

Red Alert: Intelligence Chiefs Certain Their Bosses Will Stage Terror Attack Soon 030210top2

Using information gleaned from the blatantly set-up underwear bomber patsy Umar Abdul Muttalab, intelligence chiefs have assured us that their bosses will stage another terror attack in the U.S. within the next three to six months.

“According to the nation’s intelligence chiefs, a terror attack in the United States will likely be launched within the next six months, reports WLS.

“ABC News has learned some of the intelligence has come from the accused Christmas Day bomber,” states the report.


Despite the fact that the official story behind the Christmas Day bombing has been discredited beyond all recognition, the establishment is still constantly invoking it as yet another reason for Americans to obediently line up for naked body scans in fear of whatever boogeyman is being waved in front of their faces this week.

Since federal and state authorities apparently now consider libertarians, Ron Paul supporters, gun owners and basically anyone with two brain cells left to rub together as potential domestic terrorists, whatever tricks they do decide to pull over the next six months will undoubtedly be used to tighten the screws against American dissidents that they have consistently characterized as extremist threats.

Authorities last week quietly reversed the official story behind the Christmas Day underwear bomber attack and acknowledged that an accomplice was involved, despite weeks of denial and derision of eyewitness Kurt Haskell’s description of a sharp-dressed man who helped Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab board Flight 253 in Amsterdam.

Detroit lawyer Kurt Haskell maintained from the beginning that he saw a well-dressed Indian man aid the accused bomber to board the plane despite the fact that he had no passport and was on a terror watch list.

“While Mutallab was poorly dressed, his friend was dressed in an expensive suit, Haskell said. He says the suited man asked ticket agents whether Mutallab could board without a passport. “The guy said, ‘He’s from Sudan and we do this all the time,’” reported the Michigan Live news website.

RELATED TOPICS
Washington (CNN) -- Another attempted terrorist attack on the United States in coming months is "certain," the heads of major U.S intelligence agencies told a Senate committee Tuesday.
Al Qaeda remains the top security threat to the United States, but a growing cyber-security threat also must be addressed by the U.S. intelligence community, the heads of the CIA, the FBI and other agencies told the Senate Intelligence Committee.
The hearing covered a range of security issues and became contentious, with Republicans on the committee arguing with Democratic counterparts and the intelligence chiefs on how the Obama administration has handled terrorism suspects such as the failed Christmas Day bomber of a U.S. airliner.
Asked by committee chair Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California, of the likelihood of another attempted terror attack on the United States in the next three to six months, the officials agreed with Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair's initial answer of "certain."
