Have You Seen This Letter to the Editor?

When I saw this a couple of days ago, my first thought was that it wasn’t entirely accurate, but it may actually represent a popular observation of the Republican sweep of Congress in last week’s mid-term elections. Do you agree with Richard Brunt’s observations?


Just when you think it’s okay to open your eyes again – THIS.

You Americans Have No Idea Just How Good You Have It With Obama

Many of us Canadians are confused by the U.S. midterm elections. Consider, right now in America, corporate profits are at record highs, the country’s adding 200,000 jobs per month, unemployment is below 6%, U.S. gross national product growth is the best of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries. The dollar is at its strongest levels in years, the stock market is near record highs, gasoline prices are falling, there’s no inflation, interest rates are the lowest in 30 years, U.S. oil imports are declining, U.S. oil production is rapidly increasing, the deficit is rapidly declining, and the wealthy are still making astonishing amounts of money.

America is leading the world once again and respected internationally — in sharp contrast to the Bush years. Obama brought soldiers home from Iraq and killed Osama bin Laden.

So, Americans vote for the party that got you into the mess that Obama just dug you out of? This defies reason.

When you are done with Obama, could you send him our way?

Richard Brunt

Victoria, British Columbia

It’s like pouring salt into a wound.

There is a bright side to Brunt’s letter. We, at least, know other countries are paying attention to President Obama’s accomplishments, even if the majority of Americans don’t feel they’re worth defending at the polls. It’s a shame. The Conservative bullhorn was so loud, it drove out the desire for many people to vote. And Democrats didn’t help. While pointing our fingers at the GOP (predominately our middle fingers) we forgot to blow our own horns. We forgot to build up our own President. We forgot to remind each other about what our own country looked like before Obama.

I have to believe the public really didn’t understand the GOP gerrymandering that took place the last four years. They didn’t see the many important and beneficial bills shot down by Republicans, one after another, out of spite. People wanted to see results, and the results were there. But half of America was blinded by the half-truths FOX ‘News’ and Conservative talking heads fed them, because you know, if you tell just enough truth mixed in with a bucket of lies, it causes confusion. And that can lead to a bad case of the FuckIts. Netflix marathons are way more fun.

Blunt’s letter reminds me of one of my favorite Robin Williams quotes/memes:

Thank you Richard Blunt for the reality check. Thank you Robin Williams for the memories.

And special thanks to James, TheEverlastingGOPStoppers.com(Website) and The Everlasting GOP Stoppers (on Facebook) for sharing the meme and the good work you do.

Breaking: Autism, MMR Vaccine, CDC Coverup

Breaking: Autism, MMR Vaccine, CDC Coverup

by Jon Rappoport

August 20, 2014

www.nomorefakenews.com

Sources: Age of Autism, Focus Autism Foundation—

Age of Autism 8/18 article: “Senior government scientist breaks 13 years’ silence on CDC’s vaccine-autism fraud.”

CDC research scientist comes forward, anonymously, comes clean, tells Dr. Brian Hooker that the CDC has known about the MMR vaccine connection to autism for at least 11 years.

Has known, and has intentionally covered it up.

The CDC and the US government have gone to extreme lengths to assert there is no vaccine-autism connection.

This CDC scientist has spoken with Brian Hooker, a PhD in biochemical engineering, many times.

Hooker states he has seen raw CDC data not included in any study. And the data show that:

African-American boys who receive their first MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine before the age of 36 months have a 300% increased risk for autism.

If this is true, what else is the CDC hiding?

From the Age of Autism article (8/18): “Dr. Hooker has worked closely with the CDC whistleblower, and he viewed highly sensitive documents related to the [fraudulent government] study via Congressional request from U.S. Representative Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The CDC documents from Congress and discussions that Hooker had with the whistleblower reveal widespread manipulation of scientific data and top-down pressure on CDC scientists to support fraudulent application of government policies on vaccine safety.”

If all this is true, then the CDC has stood by for the last decade and done nothing, while the MMR vaccine has damaged the brains of many, many children.

You may recall that Dr. Andrew Wakefield pointed out a likely connection between the MMR vaccine and autism. British authorities and the CDC destroyed his career.

Wakefield now states: “Over a decade ago, Dr. Scott Montgomery and I put forward a hypothesis for MMR vaccine and autism: the age you receive the vaccine influences the risk. …We shared this hypothesis with vaccine officials, members of the Centers for Disease Control, at meetings in Washington, D.C. and Cold Spring Harbor. A group of senior vaccine safety people at the CDC studied it. It panned out. We were right–at least partly. By Nov 9, 2001, nearly thirteen years ago, senior CDC scientists knew that the younger age exposure to MMR was associated with an increased risk of autism. In 2004 they published, but they hid the results. …”

There is another angle on all this. It has to do with how diseases and disorders are labeled and defined.

There is no definitive test for autism. The criteria for diagnosis are a menu of behaviors. Therefore, we are looking at a wide net which includes all sorts of brain and neurological damage.

Official studies are done which “show” that some cases of what’s called autism are not preceded by vaccination—and therefore, vaccines couldn’t be “the single cause of the single disease called autism.”

That proof, of course, is completely false—because what’s called autism isn’t a single disease. It’s neurological damage, which can have a number of causes.

And now we are looking at one of those causes: the MMR vaccine.

If in the coming days, the CDC claims they’ve already eliminated the possibility that vaccines are the cause of autism, you’ll understand their shell game, their con, their ruse.

They’ve stacked the deck, so they can roll out so-called cases of autism which have no connection to the MMR vaccine.

It’s hoax by labels and semantics.

While vaccines continue to damage the brains of children.

The American Mass Media Plays the Role of Our Parents

[Thanks, Patrick.  I believe the media is more like the baby sitter. While this is directed at America, the same thing has happened to varying degrees in many other countries.]

The media said it, I didn’t, and once again, we are viewed as “children”.  ARE we children? Well, are we?

We behave like children. We choose our parents (the government—at least we once did—now they choose themselves) and trust they will always do what’s best for us. Even when their ‘best’ borders on self-serving and of questionable ethics, we still obey. They tell us it’s for our own good. And we believe them. And the babysitter (the media) does a great job of stepping in and keeping an eye on us, relaying Mum and Dad’s instructions.

We’re too busy playing in the sandbox to bother with grownup stuff, like outrageous taxes, how our tax dollars will be spent, how the banks protect our money (or gamble it away at the global casino), the fact that inflation continues to make one-income families a relic of the past and many people must have two or more jobs to survive, our children’s education is anything but, we are spied on at every turn, various Executive Orders are passed in the small hours behind closed doors that strip us of the freedoms guaranteed in the Constitution, our beloved children, wives, husbands and siblings shuttled off to faraway countries to fight war after war after war after war in the name of Freedom and come back sans limbs and wait for many months before any government assistance comes to deal with the nightmare veterans faced while murdering millions of innocents in countries we can’t identify with. We can just turn our backs on those faceless foreign people. We don’t know them and it doesn’t affect us. There’s a ball game on and Mum and Dad will do what needs to be done.

At what point to we grow up and realize they cooked the books and hijacked the House, paid off Congress, permanently silenced whistleblowers, raped and pillaged any countries who balked at their plans to adopt their corrupt banking system and turn over their oil and gas…?

I could go on but need I? Even those who don’t habitually read the alternative news know, deep down, that SOMETHING is dreadfully wrong and it’s getting worse. Who do we think is going to fix it? The people you voted for are NOT in power. They are puppets.

The six o’clock news is not the place to learn what’s going on, what the problem is, or what remedial action is required. Like all good kids, we need to do our homework. We must stop letting people tell us what to think and what reality is. The reality the talking heads present is pure theatre. The corporate media is bought and paid for; owned by a few elite companies who kowtow to the shadow government.

Americans have been played. It’s time to stop trusting and start taking responsibility for the mess America finds itself in. Most have unwittingly abandoned the country they say they love to the usurpers who have no business making decisions on their behalf.

The few patriots who know what’s going on and do their best to effect change are struggling, big time. It’s going to take a massive, united effort to stop this train from ending up the train wreck of all train wrecks—the destruction of the USA—because there is a well-laid plan to do just that and there’s little opposition. 

If you don’t believe the mass media news is spun and mostly lies, riddle me this: The alternative news found online is completely different from the corporate news. One of them is lying. And what do we establish to solve any crime? Motive.  ~ BP

 

Orwell Would Be Proud: US Media Admits Divine Right to Decide What Public Needs to Know

Submitted by Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Yesterday afternoon, I happened to read a seemingly innocuous enough article in Time by Justin Lynch titled: Bloggers, Surveillance and Obama’s Orwellian State.

The article covered the usual bases. Such as the fact the Obama Administration is the least transparent ever, how it has attacked whistleblowers and journalists more than all other Presidents combined, and how citizen journalists pose a threat to the corrupt and dying status quo. All things that we already know.

One of the people quoted in the article is Pentagon correspondent for the New York Times, Thom Shanker, who proudly noted “his employer has implemented rigorous standards to balance the security risks of reporting classified information with the public’s right to know.”

While this guy’s assumption that bureaucrats and media personalities posses this divine right to decide what the public “has a right to know,” is extremely disturbing in its own right, what it really masks is a deep seated opinion of his own superiority compared to the unwashed masses. This seems to really come out in the extraordinarily disturbing final paragraph of the article:

The government really needs to get its message out to the American people, and it knows that the best way to do that is by using the American news media, said Shanker. The relationship between the government and the media is like a marriage; it is a dysfunctional marriage to be sure, but we stay together for the kids.

That right there is why this country is in such deep shit. We have mediocre, control-freak bureaucrats in the mainstream media and government who see themselves as our parents. That we are little children who need to be told what to do. Sure, he may try to spin this as if he was talking about their respective employees, but we all know that’s not true. These people must be peacefully removed from all positions of power as soon as possible.

More Action at the Capitol in DC; Well-Placed Lightning Bolt

I find this very interesting in light of the video we watched from one night in early July, don’t you, of the beam exiting the dome and shadowy figures darting furtively between the columns?

This bolt struck the Library of Congress.

lightning_strikes_library_of_congress_140714

Visit KPs blog to learn more.

Do you recall when the lightning bolt hit the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican in Rome? It was February 12, 2013.

Pope Benedict (Ratzinger) had just resigned due to the bad press in the Catholic Church and news of the warrant issued for his arrest for pedophilia, among other things.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/weather/2013/02/12/lightning-bolt-strikes-vatican-pope-benedict-resignation/1913095/

Does this then foretell of more high profile resignations/removals within the shadow government?

I choose to view it as Divine Intervention.

We can hope! Got plenty of that.  ~ BP

VA Cites Progress on Backlog; Congress Disagrees

Thanks, Drake.

Forgive me if I sound naive, but if they REALLY wanted to catch up on the outrageous number of unprocessed claims, why wouldn’t they HIRE MORE PEOPLE???!!!!!  This isn’t rocket science!

The unemployment rates in America are deplorable, vets are  either dying or living in misery, homeless, in mental anguish—not to mention their families… and they CLAIM they made this much progress? Sorry, not buyin’ it. They lied about this just as they’ve lied about everything else.

The formal shadow government plan is to inflict as much misery and pain on Humanity as possible. All that matters to the government is that the VA executives get their big, fat bonuses.

Cut the red tape, get some people in there who care, hire a new workforce to assist the ones who know what they’re doing and can train, and GET IT DONE!

There is no excuse for this gross negligence of men and women who went to war in the name of freedom—no matter how misguided they were.  It’s criminal.  End the suffering!!! 

Stop stalling over unqualified claims and overpayments, for crying out loud. None of that will matter soon anyway.

The US government has stolen enough money from The People to cover every claim a thousand times over and in actuality should be tried for mass murder.

And soon they shall be.  ~ BP

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Department of Veterans Affairs says it has made “tremendous progress” in reducing a disability claims backlog that reached above 600,000 early last year. Members of Congress and the department’s assistant inspector general don’t believe it.

Allison Hickey, the VA’s undersecretary for benefits, told Congress that at the insistence of officials from President Barack Obama on down, the benefits backlog has been whittled down to about 275,000 — a 55 percent decrease from the peak.

Hickey’s claims were met with disbelief by some. Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, told her flatly that he thinks the VA’s numbers are inaccurate.

“I don’t believe anybody at the table is telling the truth from the VA,” Miller said at a contentious hearing that lasted more than five hours Monday night. “I believe you are hiding numbers.”

Asked if she trusted numbers produced by VA, the agency’s assistant inspector general, Linda Halliday, said no.

“I don’t want to say I trust them,” Halliday said.

In a report issued earlier Monday, Halliday said that in its rush to reduce the backlog of disability claims, the VA has made benefits payments of more than $85 million to veterans who lacked adequate medical evidence that they deserve them. Without improvements, the VA could make unsupported payments to veterans totaling about $371 million over the next five years for claims of 100 percent disability alone, Halliday said.

The IG’s office also found widespread problems at VA regional offices in Philadelphia and Baltimore, including mail bins full of disability claims and associated evidence that had not been electronically scanned for three years.

“Improved financial stewardship at the agency is needed,” Halliday told the House veterans panel. “More attention is critical to minimize the financial risk of making inaccurate benefit payments.”

Special initiatives designed to remove older claims and speed processing of new claims are worthwhile, Halliday said, but in some cases they “have had an adverse impact on other workload areas” such as managing appeals filed by veterans and reducing overpayments to veterans.

Hickey defended her agency, saying the department has spent the past four years redesigning and streamlining the way it delivers benefits and services to veterans.

Last year, the Veterans Benefits Administration, which she oversees, completed a record 1.2 million disability rating claims, Hickey said. The agency is on track to complete more than 1.3 million rating claims this year and pay a total of $67 billion in benefits — about half the VA’s budget, Hickey said. More than 90 percent of the claims are being processed electronically, she said.

The VA has long struggled to cope with disability claims. The backlog intensified in recent years as more solders returned from Iraq and Afghanistan, and as the VA made it easier for Vietnam-era veterans to get disability compensation stemming from exposure to Agent Orange.

The VA has set a goal to process all claims within 125 days at 98 percent accuracy in 2015, but so far has fallen far short. The agency now processes most claims within 154 days — or more than five months — at a 90 percent accuracy rate, compared with an accuracy rate of 86 percent three years ago, Hickey said. At one point, veterans were forced to wait an average nine to 10 months for their disability claims to be processed.

“It has never been acceptable to VA … that our veterans are experiencing long delays in receiving the benefits they have earned and deserve,” Hickey said, adding that she was “saddened and offended” by related problems that have plagued VA health centers in recent months. Investigators have found long waits for appointments at VA hospitals and clinics, and falsified records to cover up the delays.

Halliday, in her report, said she found similar problems with the benefits agency, including faulty claims processing that “increases the risk of improper payments to veterans and their families.”

Inspectors surveying Philadelphia’s VA benefits center in June found mail bins brimming with claims and associated evidence dating to 2011 that had not been electronically scanned, she said.

Inspectors also found evidence that staffers at the Philadelphia regional office were manipulating dates to make old claims appear newer. The findings are similar to problems in which investigators have found long waits for appointments at VA hospitals and clinics, and falsified records to cover up the delays.

Feds Use Illegal Immigration Scam to Raise Money for the Cabal?

Thanks to Ben Swann for these…

So… the White House wants Congress to approve the money to help the immigrants, the agencies absorbing them, and the countries of origin?? Really?

Is there anyone out there who thinks the feds are going to use all that money to help others when they created the situation in the first place? The cabal needs money. Looks like they’ve created another way to get it. 

It’s just another earthquake or superstorm. They create the crisis and then profit from it, in multiple ways, creating thousands of victims along the way.  

And if you thought they might actually use it to beef up the border patrol… have a boo at the second article below. 

The entire scenario is preposterous.

 Be sure to check out the series of leaked photos of these immigrant children they say they are so desperate to help.  If you ask me, these kids were handpicked to come to the USA to further the agenda of the shadow government.

Why do photos have to be leaked, you ask? Good question. It’s just one more secret operation the feds don’t want us to know about.  What do they have to hide?  ~ BP

White House Requests $3.7 Billion To Address Surge Of Young Immigrants Crossing US Border

The White House requested $3.7 billion in emergency funding Tuesday, which would be divided among several government agencies, to address the surge of tens of thousands of children who have crossed the United States border.

The $3.7 figure is considerably higher than President Obama’s original expected request, which was $2 billion back in June.

A large portion of those funds, $1.8 billion, would go to the Department of Health and Human Services to provide better housing and care to the children and parents accompanying them. Housing for the immigrants has become unsurprisingly scarce, and HHS has been utilizing Department of Defense buildings in California, Texas and Oklahoma.

The Department of Justice would receive $64 million to hire more immigration judges and provide legal counsel to children undergoing removal procedures. Officials say that the White House will also seek a change in federal law that will accelerate deportation proceedings.

The Department of Homeland Security would get $1.1 billion to boost immigration and customs enforcement, and Customs and Border Protection would receive $433 million. $300 million would go to the Department of State to assist Central American countries in repatriating the deported civilians.

The White House has asserted that the funds are needed to cover costs like increased man hours from border patrol agents, increased surveillance, and temporary care and legal services for the inpouring of immigrants.

“The law will be enforced,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Monday. “And what that means is it means that these children who have been apprehended will go through the immigration court process and if they are found to not have a legal basis for remaining in this country, they’ll be returned.” Earnest also said that the majority of the immigrating children would be unqualified for humanitarian relief.

Over 52,000 immigrants have crossed the border since last October. Obama has criticized Republicans for stalling immigration reform, while Republicans have accused Obama of willful ignorance surrounding the influx, including Texas Governor Rick Perry, who said last month, “I’ve known about this for two years. The president has known about this.” Obama and Perry plan to discuss the issue on Wednesday.

The request of funding will go to a hearing before the Senate Appropriations Committee on Thursday.

Exclusive: Border Patrol Agents Contracting Scabies, Agent Speaks Out, Given Cease and Desist Order

Murrieta- The Border Patrol Agent who is tasked with Health and Safety for the San Diego Border Patrol Sector has been issued a “cease and desist” order when speaking to media about the threat of illness as a result of thousands of immigrant children crossing the U.S. southern border.

Agent Ron Zermeno, who is also the Health and Safety Coordinator for the San Diego Sector was served a cease and desist order by his higher ups after he began to question the sanitary and health conditions for agents and for the 140 immigrant children who are being transported from Texas to California every 72 hours.

“Because I stood up and told the truth they are going to terminate me and I am going to fight it” says Zermeno who spoke exclusively to Benswann.com.

“They want to quickly get them through the system and get them into the community and let it become the communities problem” says Zermano.

“Every 72 hours we receive 140 children from Texas. In every one of these groups we are seeing some kind of disease or infection. We are seeing obvious scabies, head lice, kids coughing and spitting up mucus, poor sanitary and hygiene. These kids are wearing clothing they left their country in. Already we have had three agents who have contracted scabies from these kids.”

Previously, Zermano had warned media and Border Patrol leadership that as many as 40 children with scabies had come off one plane with 140 immigrants. Because Zermano’s job as health and safety coordinator for the San Diego Sector is entirely based on keeping agents healthy, it is even more surprising that he received the cease and desist order, which is the first step toward termination.

Zermano says he isn’t the only agent being targeted. In fact, San Diego Sector Deputy Chief Scott and San Diego Sector Chief Beeson have sent a memo to all agents requiring a mandatory review.

“They are being told that they cannot talk to their loved ones or even their wives about what his happening at work” says Zermano.

“I told the public and the media about unsanitary conditions at the facility. The truth is Mr. Scott and Mr. Beeson’s plan was a failure because it is not securing the border. Our primary goal here is to protect the highway and keep these transcontinental organizations from doing business and we are pretty successful up here and they don’t care.”

As we have reported, over 50,000 immigrant children, many from Central and South America have crossed the southern border since October. These children are being sent to Border Patrol facilities which Zermano says are not equipped for medical care.

“You have to understand my level of frustration as a health and safety officer. What is the protocol for keeping things sanitary? They are using Clorox bleach and water as a spray. Why are we using a D standard when we should be using an A standard to protect our agents and the community”

Zermano went on to say that his bosses are more worried about their promotions and their bonuses than protecting the country.

“We swore an oath to protect this country and that includes the health risk to this country.”
