Looter politicians from the People’s Republic of Oregon as well as those in several other states are seriously considering charging drivers by the mile now that the GPS navigation system can electronically track how far people drive their vehicles.

Mileage fees would take the place of gasoline taxes, which will decrease as more fuel-efficient and electric cars are introduced.”

Looters in the Oregon legislature have proposed to tax motorists 85 cents per mile through 2015, and increasing it to $1.85 per mile by 2018.

Only through a re-integration of humanity into the whole of nature can our people be made stronger . . . Humankind alone is no longer the focus of thought, but rather life as a whole . . . This striving toward connectedness with the totality of life, with nature itself, a nature into which we are born, this is the deepest meaning and the true essence of National Socialist thought.”—Ernst Lehmann, botany professor and leading biologist in the Nazi regime

US Taxpayers Pay Monthly Salaries to PA Terrorists Who Murdered Americans

By Jerry A. Kane 

Palestinian Authority (PA) terrorists held in Israeli jails receive monthly salaries from the self-governing body. The PA pays the terrorists from a “public budget” or treasury in which half of its funding comes from the United States and the other half from nations in the European Union.

Terrorists guilty of committing the most horrendous crimes get the stiffest sentences and consequently draw the largest salaries from the treasury:

“Prisoners … jailed for … up to five years receive 1,400 to 2,000 NIS [New Israeli Shekel]. [T]errorists serving 10 to 15 years receive 6,000 shekels, the ones serving 15 to 20 years receive 10,000 shekels, and those serving 20 to 30 years get 12,000 shekels. These are people who planned, directed and took part in the intentional sadistic slaughter of civilian men, women and children, at point blank range.”

Some PA terrorists are in Israeli jails for murdering Americans, which means U.S. taxpayers are paying the monthly salaries of the people who murdered American citizens.

The wives and children of PA terrorists also receive money, and the terrorists who are Israeli citizens get bonuses.

“I took Gotham’s white knight and I brought him down to our level. It wasn’t hard. You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push!”

Journalists Won’t Mention Most UK Rioters Are Black

By Jerry A. Kane

Mark Duggan, the man whose shooting death by police is said to have triggered the current rioting in the United Kingdom, was black, as have been most of the rioters. The Tottenham riots stemmed from community leaders protesting his death.

“What’s so depressing about tonight’s outbreak of public disorder is that it indicates that little or no progress has been made when it comes to relations between the police and the local African-Caribbean population, particularly the local youths.

Tonight’s disturbances … were triggered by the death of a 29-year-old black man who was shot and killed by Operation Trident officers on Thursday night. Protests by community leaders were followed by outbreaks of disorder …”

Duggan was shot by police in a shootout. He was a passenger in minicab from which shots were fired. Evidence shows that somebody in the minicab shot at police, and police returned fire killing Duggan. Either he was a tragic victim of circumstance caught up in a crossfire, or he shot at the police and received his just deserts.

But either way, the police did not shoot him down in cold blood. So why then did community leaders stage the angry protest that subsequently led to the Tottenham riots?

Problems cannot be addressed unless people are willing to tell the truth. As with so many other things in this country, we stick our heads in the sand and refuse to speak out about it.”—Katharine Birbalsingh

A lawless people will always use righteous indignation as an excuse for committing criminal acts and horrible atrocities.

“And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:11,12

Mystery Investor Set to Make Billions on US Credit Rating Downgrade

By Jerry A. Kane

Last month, a mystery investor or hedge fund bet almost $1billion at 10/1 odds that the United States’ credit rating would fall, and by cracky it did. After Standard and Poor downgraded the country’s credit rating from AAA to AA+ last Friday, some “lucky” investor is now positioned to get 1,000 per cent return on his money, with the expectation that interest rates will rise following the downgrade.

So who made the billion dollar bet? Well, George Soros’ name has been bandied about as a possibility. After all he made more than $1billion on currency speculation during the United Kingdom currency crises in 1992.

He’s also tied at the hip to the Ruler and his Bread and Circuses administration and could have been privy to inside information before placing the billion dollar bet in the futures market.

It was just two years ago when Soros made a move to get dividends from his holdings in Petrobras only days before the Ruler announced $2 billion in loans and guarantees to finance the Brazilian company’s exploration of the Tupi oil field near Rio de Janeiro.

And just recently Soros stopped managing money for outside investors, which means he will receive less scrutiny from the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Although some other billionaire could have made the mystery bet, “the man who broke the Bank of England” is the odds-on favorite because he was better positioned to know that a downgrade was in the cards.

“The rich man is always sold to the institution which makes him rich. Absolutely speaking, the more money, the less virtue.”—Henry David Thoreau

The charge against the Israelis has been that they are occupying Palestinian lands. But in truth, Arabs are occupying Israeli land. There has never been a country, ancient or otherwise, called Palestine with an Arab government, flag, and officially recognized borders.

“[I]n the history of the world, Palestine has never existed as a nation. The region known as Palestine was ruled alternately by Rome, by Islamic and Christian crusaders, by the Ottoman Empire and, briefly, by the British after World War I. The British agreed to restore at least part of the land to the Jewish people as their ancestral homeland. It was never ruled by Arabs as a separate nation.”

Palestinians do not have a distinct culture or national identity. In other words, the Palestinian people don’t really exist; they are a political fabrication used to unite Arabs in their struggle against the state of Israel.

The Palestinian people does [sic] not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism.

For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.”—Zuheir Mohsen, leader of the pro-Syria faction of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO)

Largest Theft in History

By William E. Been

While watching the Debt Ceiling increase by $2.4 trillion just to cover spending until the next presidential election, the scam perpetrated on the American people could not have been any more obvious.

While the GOP House of Representatives negotiated with itself for weeks attempting to propose something that might save our great nation from financial disaster, neither the U.S. Senate nor the White House proposed anything.

Even worse, while listening to the rhetoric of Mr. Obama about the need for a bipartisan solution, the Majority Leader of the Democrat-controlled Senate announced that bills coming from the House were “dead on arrival.” In fact, nothing coming from the GOP House was even allowed to be debated by the totally partisan Senate leadership. This resulted in another crisis not to be wasted.

As the Administration-imposed deadline of August 2 approached, the Democrat rhetoric followed a familiar pattern as they attempted to frighten the American public with false accusations that grandma won’t get her medical care, seniors will lose their Social Security, sick children will be turned away, and that a major calamity will occur if no increase in the debt ceiling is approved by August 2.  

In attempting to understand how and why our government has become so blatantly irresponsible, I heard an interview with Orin Hatch on FOX News. Senator Hatch spoke of his past attempts at a Balanced Budget Amendment, specifically one in 1997 that failed to pass by a single vote. I could not help but wonder what that one vote would have meant to the current situation.

With the debt being $5.4 trillion in 1997 and heading for $15 trillion in 2011, it is clear that holding at the 1997 levels would have assured that no crisis would have occurred and that the spending being generated by the Obama Administration would have been dramatically reduced. As a result, it is important to understand who those senators were that accounted for the missing vote that would have facilitated financial soundness.

A familiar pattern was again evident. The vote was 66-34 with a super majority of 67 votes required to pass the Amendment. Upon review of the vote by senator, it was once more aggravating to see the partisan politics that has ruled this country since the early 1990s.

The “one vote” that killed the bill was cast by 34 Democrats who, as a block, killed the chance for financial sanity. Even more remarkable, every GOP senator voted for the bill along with eleven Democrats. Yet, the 34 Democrats blocked a bill that could have completely eliminated the debt ceiling crisis of 2011.

Sadly, eighteen of these 34 senators are still in the US Senate blocking all attempts to reduce spending and debt. This Group of Eighteen has destroyed the financial stability/strength of the greatest nation in history. Every American needs to know these senators who will be listed as the “Dirty Dozen plus 6” at the end of this document.  

Having documented the Democrat destruction of mortgage lending standards during the 1990s, this irresponsible destruction of a bipartisan Balanced Budget bill in 1997 coupled with the mortgage lending debacle should be an indictment of the entire Democrat Party. No theft of wealth at any level can even begin to approach what the Democrats and their Progressive Movement allies have committed against our great country.

The Democrats have literally destroyed our financial reputation, the reserve status of our dollar, and are continuing the reckless spending at the prodding of the current President who calls it “investment.” It is time to stop the Democrats, their Progressive masters, and their Socialist allies.

What “The Rise of the Planet of the Apes” Is Really About

From elvisnixon.com

The excellent new film purports to be a “re-imagining” of the origins of the Planet of the Apes saga. Set in the modern day San Francisco Bay area, the film is a vast improvement over the muddled mess that was the Tim Burton effort of a decade ago. The acting is fine and CGI apes look great.

To placate fans of the POTA series, they pay homage to the original in a variety of fun ways;  “Bright Eyes” is what Taylor (Charlton Heston) is called by Cornelius and Zira in the first film, the guard is seen watching Heston as Moses – who sets his people free, in The Ten Commandments (an unlikely film choice for a low IQ guard at a primate facility), but it is the films plot and subversive message that is appealing.

The appeal of the POTA series has always been the subtext.

The original series dealt with the issues of the late 60′s: cold war fears of nuclear holocaust, the black civil rights, and protest movement doves (the chimps) versus war-mongering hawks (the gorillas).

These themes played themselves out across all five of the original films. The first two (Planet of the Apes and Beneath the Planet of the Apes) are set in our distant future while Escape From the Planet of the Apes was the only movie with a contemporary (1974) setting, and Conquest was set in the (then) near future of 1991(a fact that is inexplicably obscured in later DVD releases of the film. If anyone out there knows why, I am interested.)

Conquest is the most revolutionary of the series with a full blown radicalism and pretty blatant references to the Black Power movement of the day. Caesar even appeals to a Black man ( it is unclear if the character is living in America ) with the plea “You of all people should understand.”

The racial elements are well documented in Eric Greene’s magisterial  1996 book Planet of the Apes as American Myth: Race, Politics, and Popular Culture

The series  tones down all the race war implications in the final installment, Battle for the Planet of the Apes, by having Caesar join forces with humans against war-mongering, troglodyte mutants and eventually a gorilla general memorably named Urko.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes takes on  new subject areas, aging baby Boomers/ dementia specifically, and the touchy subject of IQ and destiny.

Freedom is predicated on intelligence. Being smart, it seems, is a necessary antecedent to freedom.

The stupid are slaves because they are stupid, and not the reverse. The Aristotelian logic of some being “slaves by nature” seems to be the argument.

This is not to say that those who are less intelligent will not have cultures of their own. They will and they do.The scenes of Caesar’s incarceration resemble nothing less than that of a prison yard, complete with overly macho posturing and gang-banger attitudes and behaviors.

Caesar’s politeness and intelligence are seen as threatening behavior by the low-IQ simians.

Only when the smart chimp uses his superior reasoning to divide and exploit the monkey house multiculturalism does he gain freedom from being a victim.

Some reviewers misinterpret the film to be more liberal happy talk against animal testing. This is simply absurd. The film seems to be an extended paean to the benefits of testing potential Alzheimer cures on apes for the benefit human superiors.

The film continues the science fiction tradition of masking uncomfortable “us versus them” issues in an era of political correctness that marks such discussion as verboten “crime think.”

America’s Founders would be aghast at the depth to which their constitutional republic has sunk. Their vision for a government of the people has devolved into a government ruled by partisan parties perpetually in election mode vying for praise from Washington insiders instead of doing the people’s business.

The Ruler, the Democrat-controlled Senate, and the Republican-controlled House have become dysfunctional, blowing apart even the sanest of objectives. Their debt deal keeps them from being held accountable for their disastrous fiscal mismanagement until after the 2012 election, but it doesn’t solve the nation’s debt crisis.

The only sane thinkers … were the Tea Party Republicans who [argued] the best way to stave off unaffordable debt is to first stop spending, and a debt-ceiling limit should be contingent on a balanced-budget amendment to the U.S. constitution, [but they] were nonetheless pilloried as a cabal of right-wing lunatics, even to the point of being labelled as “terrorists” by buffoonery-prone U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden…. [and] the left-wing media …

No doubt the talking heads, pundits, and journalists in the mainstream media will blame the Bush Administration, Republicans in Congress, and even the Tea Party for Standard and Poor’s downgrade of America’s AAA credit rating for the first time in 70 years, but responsibility for the country’s financial mess and staggering levels of debt belongs to the Ruler and his Bread and Circuses administration for their unprecedented government spending and borrowing.

Since President Obama took office in January 2009, the United States has embarked on the most ambitious failed experiment in Washington meddling in US history. Huge increases in government spending, massive federal bailouts, growing regulations on businesses, thinly veiled protectionism, and the launch of a vastly expensive and deeply unpopular health care reform plan, have all combined to instill fear and uncertainty in the markets. Free enterprise has taken a backseat to continental European-style interventionism, as an intensely ideological left wing administration has sought to dramatically increase the role of the state in shaping the US economy. The end result has been a dramatic fall in economic freedom, sluggish growth, poor consumer confidence, high unemployment, a collapsing housing market, and an overall decline in US prosperity, with more than 45 million Americans now reliant on food stamps – that’s over one seventh of the entire country.
