Bernanke’s Nightmare: Audit Pushed for Romney’s Platform

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke calls it his “nightmare scenario.” One of Mitt Romney’s top economic advisers called it “trouble.” Yet as they look to their national convention starting in Tampa on Aug. 27, Republicans are considering including a plank in their party platform calling for a full audit of the central bank.

Prodded by the failed primary bid of longtime Fed critic Ron Paul -- and the grassroots enthusiasm the Texas congressman’s cause inspired among bail-out weary Tea Party activists and small government advocates -- Republicans are entertaining a prospect that has long made them and some of their financial supporters cringe.

Paul, in an interview, warned that if Romney’s backers resist the effort, it could result in a politically distracting and messy fight in front of the national media. “It’s good economics and it’s good legislation, but it’s also good politics, because 80 percent of the American people agree with it,” Paul said. If Republican leaders “exclude it, I would think some of my supporters would be annoyed and feel strongly enough to take it to the floor under the rules.”

US Government Proposes Law Making It Illegal For Them To Kill You

Last Friday, US Congressman Dennis Kucinich introduced HR 6357, a bill which aims to ‘prohibit the extrajudicial killing of United States citizens’ by the federal government. In other words, in the Land of the Free, they need to pass a law to prevent the government from indiscriminately murdering its own citizens.

Now if this doesn’t give one reason to pause and consider the distortions of liberty that have taken place in western civilization, I don’t know what will. Think about it:

  • Does a free society send government hit men to eliminate anyone they perceive to be an enemy of the state?
  • Does a free society have hundreds of police agencies, each with the authority to deprive a man of his life, liberty and property in their sole discretion?
  • Does a free society have hundreds of thousands of laws, codes, rules, regulations, and policies which effectively criminalize nearly every aspect of one’s existence?
  • Does a free society lead the world in prison population?
  • Does a free society hunt down criminals and terrorists by treating its citizens like criminals and terrorists?
  • Does a free society tell its citizens what foods they are / are not allowed to consume?
  • Does a free society steal your money at gunpoint to buy bombs that they drop by remote control on brown people in faraway lands?

Obama fights ban on indefinite detention of Americans

Please share this article with anyone who is still an Obama supporter. He obviously has an agenda that underminds the freedoms of the nation.

The White House has filed an appeal in hopes of reversing a federal judge’s ruling that bans the indefinite military detention of Americans because attorneys for the president say they are justified to imprison alleged terrorists without charge.

The Brokered Convention Strategy

"However, neither would Mitt Romney. That’s the kicker, and what I would like to see…and that is still within the realm of possibility. A brokered convention would be a way of reaching our goal…but it could get messy. Here is how it would work:"

Maine’s Elected Republican National Delegates Say 'No Deal' to Their Challengers

By unanimous vote of those present, the 40 contested members of the Maine Delegation to the Republican National Convention being held this month in Tampa, Florida, did not accept a deal put forward by Charles Webster, State GOP Chairman.

Brent Tweed, the elected Chairman for the Delegation, notes that the proposal would have required the delegates to sign a binding pledge to cast their votes for Mitt Romney at the Republican National Convention if Ron Paul did not appear on the ballot.

Speaking on the decision, Tweed said, “We were rightfully elected by the Republicans of Maine to represent them as unbound delegates in Tampa. It is unreasonable for the Republican Party at either the national or state level, or for any campaign for President, to attempt to pressure the Maine Delegation to vote any particular way. We will not be intimidated into signing political deals under threat of being unseated. We are accountable to the Maine Republicans who elected us, not the Mitt Romney Campaign.”

Media Reports Paul Won Five States Needed for Nomination, Romney Breaks Rules to Deny Speaking Slot

http://ralphlopez.hubpages.com/hub/Media-Reports-Ron-Paul-Wi...

Here's the research to hit people in the face with. Case closed.

Note: article revised 8/8/2012. Washington makes it six.

Continuing the bizarre shadow dance with reality, the major media has reported that Ron Paul has indeed won the five state minimum required to be on the ballot for nomination at the Republican Convention this month, even as it continues to imply the opposite. The latest parallel universe is the Nebraska story, in which "Ron Paul's Delegate Insurgency Ends." This is ABC News. That's right, ABC News:

"Nebraska could have given Paul the support of a plurality of delegates in five states; according to Republican National Committee rules, Paul would have been officially eligible as a candidate for the nomination at the Tampa convention. Organizers would be required to grant Paul’s faction up to 15 minutes for a nominating speech."

But the media forgot its own reporting. Ron Paul has already won six states, and maybe more: Nevada, Maine, Minnesota, Louisiana, Iowa, and Washington.

Washington Post: "Ron Paul wins majority of Nevada delegates":

What is the Whole Picture?

I see pieces of this puzzle scattered in front of me, but I don't have many ideas to what the Whole Picture looks like.

The large corporations (US and non-US) apparently are directing the USA and use our military and fiat to control the commodities of the world with our governments approval. But the bottom line reads "Don't get caught."

From a corporation's point of view, things like religion, humanitarian, cultures, boundaries, and country laws have nothing to do with profit. These things do not contribute to profit. There is nothing wrong with profit, but how it is gained is in conflict with moral and immoral.

Amorality is variously defined as an unawareness of, indifference toward, or disbelief in any set of moral standards or principles. So I'm guessing this is the mind-frame of the very large corporations.

Ok, I can understand this. It doesn't matter if I feel it is right or wrong, just saying that I understand this concept.

But it doesn't give me an end picture of this puzzle.

Is not joining Facebook a sign you're a psychopath?

Facebook has become such a pervasive force in modern society that increasing numbers of employers, and even some psychologists, believe people who aren't on social networking sites are 'suspicious.'

The German magazine Der Taggspiegel went so far as to point out that accused theater shooter James Holmes and Norwegian mass murder Anders Behring Breivik have common ground in their lack of Facebook profiles.

On a more tangible level, Forbes.com reports that human resources departments across the country are becoming more wary of young job candidates who don't use the site.

Three states have elections TODAY August 7th 2012 Missouri, Washignton State and Michigan

Like so many that I speak to, very few people know that there are a bunch of what's called "run off" primaries taking place before the General Election on November 6th.

That means everyone needs to get off their arse and vote "liberty candidates" into office so we can change the playing field in the country that has bent and broken the rules against us.

On Tuesday 8/7/12 people in Missouri, Washington State and Michigan hava a chance to pull the rug out from under the status quo because the sheeple are only motivated to go vote in the big elections. Below I've collected names of liberty candidates from different sources. I suggest voting for these people, but nothing trumps your own research. I don't know it all and someone's definition of a "liberty candidate" may differ from yours.
