Fake Ranger Pleads Guilty to Gun Charge – source Houston Chronicle

*** begin quote ***

A Conroe (Texas) man who passed himself off as an Army 
Ranger to get closer to the inner circle of ex-Navy SEAL 
Marcus Luttrell – the war hero portrayed in the book and 
movie “Lone Survivor” – pleaded guilty to being a felon in 
possession of a firearm. When local and Federal officials 
searched Daniel Lee Marshall Jr.’s trailer, they found 
several guns, as well as an Army dress uniform with ribbons 
he did not earn and a pickup truck with a Purple Heart 
license plate that he did not deserve.

In court, Marshall admitted to being a felon in possession 
of a firearm, a crime that carries a penalty of up to 10 years 
in prison. “There is no parole in the federal system,” the 
Judge warned him from the bench. “Any sentence you get 
will not be shortened by parole.” As a felon, he is not legally 
allowed to buy a firearm. How he got the weapons is 
unclear.

Africa: A Tragic Continent
By Walter E. Williams
October 28, 2014

*** begin quote ***

Though there’s a strong case for us to help with the Ebola crisis, the worst thing Westerners could do to Africa would be to send more foreign aid. Foreign aid provides the financial resources that enable Africa’s grossly corrupt and incompetent regimes to buy military equipment, pay off cronies and continue to oppress their people. It also provides resources for the leaders to live lavishly and set up “retirement” accounts in foreign banks.

*** end quote ***

Anyone notice that the USA is broke?

So why should “We, The Sheeple” support borrowing money from China to send it to the Swiss bank accounts of Third World “leaders”?

Suggest that we PNG (“Personna Non Grata”) politicians and bureaucrats from these countries.

Let them stew in their own juice.

FUN: TOP 10 REASONS TO VOTE DEMOCRAT

FROM AN EMAIL FROM LUDDITE

TOP 10 REASONS TO VOTE DEMOCRAT

#10. I vote Democrat
because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I’ve decided to marry my German Shepherd.

#9. I vote Democrat
because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon at 15% isn’t.

#8. I vote Democrat
because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

#7. I vote Democrat
because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

#6. I vote Democrat
because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves. I am also thankful that we have a 911 service that gets police to your home in order to identify your body after a home invasion.

#5. I vote Democrat
because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive and comfy.

#4. I vote Democrat
because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away Social Security from those who paid into it.

#3. I vote Democrat because I
believe that businesses should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even
and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrat Party sees fit.

#2. I vote Democrat
because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

… And, the #1 reason I vote Democrat is
because I think it’s better to pay $billions$ for oil to people who hate us, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher, or fish here in America. We don’t care about the beetles, gophers, or fish in those other countries.

 

“The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits”… Albert Einstein

I have no info on the accuracy or attribution of the supposed Einstein quote. The other 10 points seem spot on to me.

Not that I have any great love for the R’s who are merely in most cases just Democratic lite.

ECONOMICS: The Federal Reserve is Financial Repression

How The Federal Reserve Is Purposely Attacking Savers
But bungling badly as it does
by Chris Martenson
Monday, October 20, 2014, 12:36 PM

*** begin quote *** 

he answer is that while inflation always steals from savers, it really does its dirty work when the central bank and government conspire to create a condition of pervasive and unavoidable negative real interest rates.

This is the heart of Financial Repression: an environment in which you literally cannot save money without paying a penalty.

The main takeaway of Chapter 18 on Fuzzy Numbers is not that the government fibs a little now and then (okay,all the time) merely because that’s politically expedient, but it does so in service to a larger and more pernicious aim: forcing people to accept an inflation rate that is higher than either their income growth and/or the market’s safe rate of return.

As soon as you are locked into a negative interest rate regime, your capital is losing purchasing power. But simple accounting rules dictate that loss of wealth had to go somewhere. So where did it go? To somebody else.

Negative real interest rates transfer money from every saver to every over-extended borrower. This is especially true with the government (largely because of its special revolving door relationship with the Fed, which both issues the money out of thin air and then buys government debt forcing rates into negative territory).

It’s really that simple. The Fed has openly and actively suppressed rates — not to help the credit markets, as they claim, but to engineer a condition of Financial Repression. Because that’s what the government needs to stealthily take your wealth to pay down the prior debts it accumulated.

*** end quote ***

The War on Savers, the War on Capital, and the War on the Poor, Middle Class, and Elderly all intersect with the Federal Reserve.

Zero Interest Rate DESTROYS these communities.

Think about it from an Eccky-or-Icky-nomics POV.

It’s saying that there is NO preference to delay consumption.

It’s also saying there is NO way to preserve wealth for later use in retirement.

Argh!

* Savers are “rewarded” with inflation that depreciates their purchasing power.

* Capital can’t be formed with paying the inflation penalty.

* Since the poor have to spend most, if not all, of their current income, they face the inflation that erodes their future standard of living.

* Middle Class “wealthy” can’t preserve their financial assets into retirement. Why do the near fraudsters / hucksters, who advertise gold collectibles for IRAs, strike a chord with the future retirees? It’s their only chance to preserve their buying power.

* The Elderly on pensions, social “in”security, or savings are screwed by inflation increasing their costs and their capital earns nothing.

So, why do “We, The Sheeple” put up with it?

Bread and circuses!

Argh!

Ebola Virus Outbreak.
– Shepherd FarmerGeek

“The group was stoned and found hidden in the village’s septic tank,” according to the dispatch, which did not say how many people died in the incident. “The reason for the killings is unknown. It is likely the villagers murdered the group fearing they would be diagnosed with Ebola and removed to quarantine…”

Hugh Adds: How does a country effectively fight an epidemic among such a superstitious population? It’s a hard position. Do you violate a person’s God-ordained rights and force them to receive medical care or do you just wall the village off?

From this little L libertarian pov, they’d have to be “ostracized”.

TINFOILHAT: Malaysian Airlines flight MH 370 the great aviation mystery

http://www.spiegel.de/international/business/mh370-emirates-head-has-doubts-about-investigation-a-996212.html

Missing Plane: Emirates Head Critical of MH 370 Investigation
Interview Conducted by Andreas Spaeth

Despite months spent searching for Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370, not a trace has been found.Why is there still no trace of flight MH 370? In an interview, Sir Tim Clark, head of Emirates Airline, is sharply critical of the investigation thus far. He believes someone took control of the plane and maintained it until the very end.

*** begin quote ***

Tim Clark has been a senior manager at the airline Emirates since 1985 and has been instrumental in developing it into one of the world’s largest airlines. Today, the 64-year-old is seen as a knowledgeable expert and critic of the aviation industry. His view of the vanished Malaysian Airlines flight MH 370 is a provocative one. The plane that disappeared was a Boeing 777 and Emirates operates 127 such aircraft, more than any other airline in the world.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: It’s now October, seven months after the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH 370, and we still don’t know what happened. What can still be done to gain some degree of clarity?

Clark: MH 370 remains one of the great aviation mysteries. Personally, I have the concern that we will treat it as such and move on. At the most, it might then make an appearance on National Geographic as one of aviation’s great mysteries. We mustn’t allow this to happen. We must know what caused that airplane to disappear.

*** and ***

SPIEGEL ONLINE: At what point on the presumed flight path of MH 370 do your doubts begin?

Clark: There hasn’t been one overwater incident in the history of civil aviation — apart from Amelia Earhart in 1939 — that has not been at least 5 or 10 percent trackable. But MH 370 has simply disappeared. For me, that raises a degree of suspicion. I’m totally dissatisfied with what has been coming out of all of this.

A long read, but a very informative one.

Any why aren’t the Gooferments, politicians, and bureaucrats demanding answers?

GOVERNACIDE: State Department plans to bring foreign Ebola patients to U.S.

State Department plans to bring foreign Ebola patients to U.S.
By Stephen Dinan – The Washington Times – Updated: 9:40 p.m.
on Tuesday, October 28, 2014

*** begin quote ***

The State Department has quietly made plans to bring Ebola-infected doctors and medical aides to the U.S. for treatment, according to an internal department document that argued the only way to get other countries to send medical teams to West Africa is to promise that the U.S. will be the world’s medical backstop.

Some countries “are implicitly or explicitly waiting for medevac assurances” before they will agree to send their own medical teams to join U.S. and U.N. aid workers on the ground, the State Department argues in the undated four-page memo, which was reviewed by The Washington Times.

GOVERNACIDE: Gooferment is the greatest cause of drug addiction

U.S. Government Guilty of Creating Heroin Addicts
October 16, 2014
Editorial By Wendy McElroy

*** begin quote ***

At least three factors call the official line into question.

First, in July 2013, the National Institute of Health published a study entitled, “Introduction to the Special Issue: Drugs, Wars, Military Personnel, and Veterans.” It stated: “Recent research suggests that the use and misuse of alcohol and prescription opioids (or POs such as OxyContin, Vicodin, and Percocet) are the signature substances associated with OEF/OIF/OND military personnel and veterans; for many, the consumption of these substances is causing additional challenges both for military personnel and veteran populations.” (OEF/OIF/OND = Operation Enduring Freedom, Afghanistan/Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation New Dawn, Iraq) It would be amazing if prescription drug abuse was prevalent while far more easily and anonymously obtained drugs were eschewed.

Second, in the earlier stages of the 13-year war, rampant drug use was acknowledged. A 2007 Salon article was entitled, “Afghanistan. It’s easy for soldiers to score heroin in Afghanistan. Simultaneously stressed and bored, U.S. soldiers are turning to the widely available drug for a quick escape.”

Third, newspapers have recently exploded with stories of an epidemic rise in America’s heroin addicts. On March 21, a BBC News headline trumpeted, “The horrific toll of America’s heroin ‘epidemic’.” In April, NBC News ran a 17-part series on the epidemic. The Washington Post (May 16) ran an article entitled “When heroin use hit the suburbs, everything changed”; which focused on heroin addiction becoming a white phenomenon. None of the stories mentioned the impact of war or that most soldiers coming home are white. Instead, like the ABC News coverage (July 31), they dwelt on the “doubling” of addicts as though it had no discernible cause.

Conclusion

What is the truth of it? Sometimes intentionally and sometimes not, often directly and often through circumstance, the American government is the greatest cause of drug addiction at home. And war is its conduit.

*** end quote ***

So why can’t “We, The Sheeple” connect the dots?

The Welfare / Warfare State makes us all poorer with its large number of Unintended Consequences!

Put Walmart and the other “drug” stores in charge of distribution and treat addiction as a medical problem.

Argh!

POLITICAL: Addiction is a MEDICAL problem

Subject: Advisory Message: South Brunswick Police Officers Save 21-year-old man

*** begin quote ***

South Brunswick Police Officers quick actions saved the life of a 21-year-old Township man early Sunday morning. At 4:11am police received a 911 call from a man who said his friend had overdosed on heroin and was unconscious in a backyard. Officer Scott Bucca and Officer Marcus Leysath responded to the residence off Deans Lane and were directed to the backyard by the friend. They found the victim unresponsive with minimal breathing. Officers used the medicine Naloxone to prevent the heroin from slowing and stopping the victim’s breathing. The officers reported that within minutes of administering the medicine the victim began to breathe normally. The Monmouth Junction First Aid Squad and paramedics transported the victim to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick for treatment.

*** end quote ***

While any tragedy averted is good, it has to trace back to the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs”!

If all “illegal” drugs were for sale at WalMart and Walgreens, then addicts would be safe from adulteration and varying concentrations. 

Addiction is a MEDICAL problem, not a LEGAL problem. 

And, if “drugs” were no longer illegal, then they wouldn’t be “kool”. 

Argh!

One of the reasons that USP http://www.usp.org/ was formed was to ensure safe drug standards.

So once again, Gooferment creates a problem and then “finds” a solution that requires more Gooferment!

Why Waking Up at Night Might be Good For You
Jordyn Cormier
October 18, 20145:29 pm

*** begin quote ***

Humans may be more predisposed to sleep in two stages: a first sleep and a second sleep. Beginning a couple of hours after dusk, the first sleep would traditionally last about 4 hours. Then, there would be an interlude of waking activity — be it tending the fire, praying, reading, getting frisky, or deep contemplation — before resuming sleep number 2 into the morning. According to historian Roger Ekirch, there are multiple references in literature to affirm this idea that first and second sleep were common, undisputed practices up until the early 1700s when street lighting came about and it became fashionable to stay up late.

We must look for the opportunity in every difficulty, instead of being paralyzed at the thought of the difficulty in every opportunity.

Unfortunately, this makes us pessimists look dumb.

With apologies to Doctor Norman Vincent Peale (May 31, 1898 – December 24, 1993) was a minister and author of “The Power of Positive Thinking”, who I heard speak in person more than once; thanks to a “Comparative Christian Religions” Theology course required of all Engineers. 

I often cite “Reinke’s Rule” (egotistically named after a fat old white guy injineer named me) which states: “Expect the worst and every surprise will be to the good side.”

This means by not expecting sunshine and lollypops, by not presuming an easy journey, one can be prepared to overcome ALL obstacles. That careful consideration before embarking allows one to fully commit to the goal and be positive you will attain it.

My 3 confirming examples comes from post-graduate education opportunities: 

* I had the opportunity to get my MBA. With a bunch of co-workers. Three years at night. Fall, Spring, and Summer. No partial credit for not finishing. Completed. Piece of cake. Actually enjoyed it. 

* I then had the opportunity to go to law school with the same cadre I took my MBA with. It was 6 years of the same Fall, Spring, and Summer. With real work and a bar exam. No partial credit. I declined. Of the 20 that started; only 4 finished. And, one never passed the bar. 3/20 = 15%!

* I had the opportunity to get my MS CompSci. Had to go it alone; no comrades. That was hard! Three years at night. Fall, Spring, and Summer. No partial credit for not finishing. Completed.

Upon reflection, I should have gone to Law School. I regret it today.

But I wonder how I would feel if I was one of the 17 versus one of the 3?

And, when makes such a decision, one doesn’t know what costs were hidden along the way. Six summer vacations come to mind. 

So, I’ll stick with “Reinke’s Rule”. You OTOH have follow your own paradigms and memes. YMMV!

Ruling limits legal remedies for many exposed to Camp Lejeune pollutants
The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a North Carolina law limiting the time period in which a plaintiff can seek damages from exposure to pollutants at Camp Lejeune.

*** begin quote ***

A federal court ruling in North Carolina this week will have a devastating impact on many of the nearly 20,000 Floridians currently registered with the Marine Corps for their exposures at Camp Lejeune to three known human carcinogens found in the camp’s drinking water, said a man who contracted breast cancer as a result.

Those Floridians are on a list compiled by the Marines. They may have been exposed as far back as 1953, according to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.

“Legally, we are done,” said Mike Partain of Winter Haven, who was born at Camp Lejeune 46 years ago. “The government has successfully found a silver bullet to put an end to legal issues. If this happened in Florida, rather than North Carolina, we would still be legally able to pursue the government.”

Neither the Marines nor the Department of Justice responded to requests for comment.

This week, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a North Carolina law limiting the time period in which a plaintiff can seek damages.

The law, called the statute of repose, placed a 10-year limit on which plaintiffs in that state can seek damages from exposure to contaminants, with no exception for latent diseases like the cancer contracted by Partain.

MH-17 REPORT FALSE FLAG EXPOSED AFTER REVELATION PASSENGER WAS WEARING OXYGEN MASK
Tyler Durden
Zero Hedge
October 10th, 2014
Reader Views: 241

*** begin quote ***

When exactly a month ago the supposedly objective, impartial Netherlands released its official, 34-page preliminary report of the MH-17 crash over Ukraine, presumably based on black box data, air traffic control records, and other “authentic, verified” information, there were precisely zero mentions of “oxygen“, “mask” or “oxygen mask.”

Which is odd, because in what should become the biggest Freudian slip scandal in false-flag history, certainly since the Gulf of Tonkin, yesterday Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans accidentally revealed for the very first time ever, that one of the Australian passengers aboard the doomed airplane“appears to have donned an oxygen mask before the fatal crash, suggesting some on board might have been aware of their impending deaths, a Dutch official disclosed.” Clearly a crucial aspect of the crash, as it points at the severity of the alleged explosion, yet one which was not noted until yesterday and which completely skipped the purvey of the official crash report for reasons unknown.

Needless to say, this makes a complete mockery of the story that the plane had exploded upon impact with the “Russian” missile, and is why there was supposedly no trace of any impact on the flight’s black box recorder. Whether or not it also means that the alternative theory that a Ukraine jet had purposefully downed the Malaysian aircraft to serve as a pretext to implicate Russia, is unclear. But it also means that yet another conspiracy theory becomes fact: namely that whoever were the western powers who doctored and manipulated the “official” crash report of MH-17 to implicate Putin, not only lied but fabricated evidence.

*** end quote ***

Now the “official story” is that the plane was shot down by the Russians.

But NOW that doesn’t actually align with the “evidence”.

There are several different threads of “conspiracy”:

(1) The Ukrainians tried to knock down Putin’s plane that transited the same area a short time before;

(2) The Ukrainians fired the missile;

OR

(3) Parties unknown did it to set up the Russians.

Who knows?

Certainly not me!

But when looking into these things, I use the rule “Cui Bono”.

In this case, certainly not Putin!

Parallel Reconstruction
By Andrew P. Napolitano
October 9, 2014

*** begin quote ***

Nevertheless, the NSA’s agents and lawyers felt it necessary to concoct this groundless, disingenuous and fictional legal distinction in order to persuade the FISA court that it is legally acceptable to permit untethered spying so long as the fruits of that spying are not used in criminal prosecutions. Curiously and naively, judges of the FISA court bought that argument.

So, what happens when the spying uncovers ordinary criminal behavior unrelated to national security? In order to keep its hands clean, so to speak, the NSA sends that evidence to the DOJ, whose lawyers and agents in cahoots with the NSA then concoct an explanation as to how the DOJ came upon the evidence. Of course, that explanation curiously and carefully omits the mention of domestic spying. DOJ lawyers know that if the beginning of the process of obtaining evidence is found to be unconstitutional, then the evidence itself can be useless in court.

This is what lawyers and judges call the “fruit of the poisonous tree.”

This is deceptive, unlawful and unconstitutional behavior by the Executive Branch.

It undermines the “Rule of Law”.

And the fact that it was done by BOTH the R Bush and the D Obama demonstrates that there is little difference between the D’s and the R’s.

At the very least, there should be dismissals and pardons for ALL defendants who were unfairly convicted. 

Argh!

TINFOILHAT: Building 7 — nothing to see here

Bid To Solve 9/11 Mystery Via NYC Ballot Ends After Court Ruling
By Bryson Hull on Oct 9, 2014

*** begin quote ***

An effort to put a new investigation into the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 up for vote in New York City won’t be on the November ballot, after a New York State Supreme Court judge upheld a ruling dismissing the proposed referendum.

*** and ***

That the High-Rise Safety Initiative made it this far should be considered against this fact: only two proposed referenda have made it to the ballot in New York City in the last 50 years. And neither of those cost money to implement, as the High-Rise Safety Initiative would have. New York City electoral laws are written such that it’s next to impossible to get any similar measures in front of voters. 

*** and ***

Until that happens, the question of how Building 7 collapsed so swiftly and uniformly will remain a baffling part of the story of 9/11 still unanswered by the official probe. 

*** end quote ***

It’s always interesting that, when anyone tries to use “the system”, nothing ever happens.

“If voting made any difference they wouldn’t let us do it.” ― Mark Twain

But “the elite” doesn’t even let it get that far.

Call the people who don’t accept the official line — “barbara streisand” — tin foil hat, conspiracy theorists, or just crazy. Nothing should be allowed to disturb the Welfare / Warfare State as it produces cannon fodder for the Army, willing morons for the factories, and useful idiots to vote for and be led by the elite!

Argh!

INSPIRATIONAL: Complicated politics, irrational decisions, and legions of people

http://buff.ly/1vRZ2nM

“Healthcare is an industry involving complicated politics, irrational decisions, and legions of people looking for their next paycheck. However, the sheer volume of money in the system is making it a prime target of entrepreneurs all over the world.

But for those thinking that emerging tech will enable them to circumvent the entire healthcare system completely, it may, but only for a very tiny subset of the population.

We are on the verge of crossing over from science hype to science reality, with the prospects of creating a tremendous upside. Yes, there will be more than a few battles fought along the way between doctors and health industry executives, insurance administrators, and government officials but in the end, it doesn’t have to be a win-lose situation.”

Hero crawls through tunnel of sh*t to rescue puppies

*** begin quote ***

A Thai man, believed to be a Thai naval officer, didn’t let 100 meters of feces-filled sewer piping get between him and a crying litter of puppies in need. According to the video uploaded to LiveLeak on Wednesday, the man waded through the poop chute with a flashlight in tow and pulled out 4 puppies who were, according to NineMSN, ”washed in after heavy rain.”

This guy deserve a round applause and hot shower.

TINFOILHAT: TWA Flight 800 Was Shot Down, but no FOIA for The Sheeple

http://www.thedailysheeple.com/another-foia-request-denied-and-anderson-cooper-slips-twa-800-shot-down_102014

Things like these psychopaths in charge gleefully stoking the cold war (guess that’d be called a warm war at the moment); or the fact that former Secretary of Defense and CIA Director Leon Panetta is now claiming the war with ISIS is set to last THIRTY YEARS; and now, just a few days ago, a federal appeals court denied a fresh FOIA request regarding the 1996 TWA flight 800 “incident” off the coast of Long Island, New York…you know, in the interest of “national security”.

TWA 800 and the Subversion of Justice. What really happened to TWA flight 800?

This doc­u­men­tary displays that truth con­cern­ing the mys­te­ri­ous crash of TWA Flight 800 on Ju­ly 17, 1996. As you will see, Flight 800 was ac­tu­al­ly de­stroyed by a sur­face-to-air mis­sile. Ev­ery al­le­ga­tion made in this film is backed up with facts-none more dra­mat­ic than those that come from the Fed­er­al gov­ern­ment it­self. You’ll learn what the 736 of­fi­cial eye­wit­ness­es ac­tu­al­ly saw; why avi­a­tors re­ject the CIA “car­toon” ex­pla­na­tion; how the Feds crim­i­nal­ly sup­pressed re­port­ing; the crit­i­cal wit­ness draw­ings; the rigged NTSB hear­ings; the damn­ing radar da­ta and doc­u­men­ta­tion; the al­tered phys­i­cal ev­i­dence; un­de­ni­able proof of ex­plo­sive residue prov­ing a mis­sile strike; the sting­ing re­port from the ma­chin­ist union; and much more!

Anderson Cooper: TWA Flight 800 Was Shot Down

Well back in July while CNN’s Anderson Cooper was covering the flight MH17 “incident,” he accidentally blurted out that flight 800 was “shot down,” (what, by a surface-to-air missile perhaps?) before he corrected himself at the next possible opportunity after the next commercial break with the official government story. 

# – # – # – # – #   

You Sheeple don’t need “no information”.

The egotistical of Big Gooferment can just stick to the “official story” and “move along citizen; nothing to see here.”

Of course, the poor souls on the flight are lost and their famiies are forever devastated.

Argh!

1. Complaining may feel good for a second but it is probably the biggest waste of time there is! It serves no purpose unless you are taking note of what went wrong for the sake of figuring out what you’re going to do about it. Otherwise, shut up about it because really, nobody wants to hear it!

*** end quote ***

Ah hah! That’s my problem.

If anyone hears me complain, please ask me: “Am I supposed to be taking notes for your problem solving effort?”

I promise to do the same for everyone else.

Laugh!
