Ron Paul on the Fiscal Cliff: “We Have Passed the Point of No Return”

In a little under three minutes, Ron Paul explains to a somewhat nonplussed CNBC anchor just how ridiculous the charade that is occurring in D.C. actually is.

This succinct, spin-free clip should be required viewing for each and every asset-manager, talking-head, propagandist, and mom-and-pop who are viewing the last-minute idiocy of the ‘fiscal cliff’ debacle with some hope that things will be different this time.

“We have passed the point of no return where we can actually get our house back in order,” Paul begins, adding that “they pretend they are fighting up there, but they really aren’t. They are arguing over power, spin, who looks good, who looks bad; all trying to preserve the system where they can spend what they want, take care of their friends and print money when they need it.” With social safety nets available to rich and poor, there is no impetus for change and “the country loses,” but Paul concludes, the markets are starting to say “there is a limit to this.”

Barter Economy: 50g Gold and Silver CombiBar Can Snap into 1g Micro Bars Thumbnail

Barter Economy: 50g Gold and Silver CombiBar Can Snap into 1g Micro Bars

Posted on Dec 25, 2012 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Economic News, Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Federal Reserve & Bankers

Valcambi sa, an international gold refiner and bar manufacturer based in Switzerland, has debuted their new CombiBar, a .999 gold or silver, credit card sized “bar” that can be broken into 1 gram increments for smaller transactions.

For those who invest in precious metals as a form of barter or alternative currency, the traditionally higher premiums on small gold bars are cost-prohibitive to many buyers, making silver much more attractive due to its lower cost per ounce and ease of use in transactions.

Gold is typically reserved for larger purchases or as a store of wealth, until now.  The CombiBar allows an investor to purchase 50 gram or 100 gram “bars” that can snap apart into individual, smaller “bars” or sheets.  The cards are available in .999 silver, palladium, and platinum!

It should be noted that like all precious metal purchases, there is a premium, and according to my figures, the CombiBar runs approximately 15-25% higher than spot price, depending on what precious metal you purchase.

Typical bullion prices only command a 5-10% premium, so it boils down to, “Are you willing to spend a bit more now for easier use in the future?...

‘Preservative-free’ Vaccines and Flu Shots Still Contain Deadly Toxins Thumbnail

‘Preservative-free’ Vaccines and Flu Shots Still Contain Deadly Toxins

Posted on Dec 25, 2012 in Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

The preservative-free lie is being perpetuated for concerned parents and health enthusiasts, so you will still go to the school, clinic, pharmacy, grocery store, or whatever other “jab shop” that administers flu shots, and get injected with toxins, even though they may have “left out” one or two of the toxins you heard or read bad things about. Maybe preservative-free means you still get the toxic preservatives, but its only trace amounts that are being injecting into your blood. (http://vaxtruth.org/2011/08/vaccine-ingredients/)

People who are allergic to peanuts, soy, fish, and other common foods can have a deathly allergic reaction to even the smallest amounts of these ingredients, and that’s just when it touches their skin or they eat a “trace” amount, so then we delve into injecting toxins in trace amounts. People who are allergic to penicillin cannot have even a trace amount of it, or they could die. So where’s the logic? There is none. It’s just bad business as usual for Big Pharma.

Injecting “trace amounts” of toxins

How different is it if you eat a lot of mercury, or you inject just a little?...

Gun Frenzy: Photos Show How Quickly Stores Across the Nation are Selling Out

After nationwide calls to ban assault rifles and high-capacity magazines following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Americans concerned about the government’s coming move to restrict the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession of firearms deemed too dangerous to be in the hands of private citizens are cleaning out gun stores from coast to coast.

While some retailers have made the decision to suspend sales and stop selling certain firearms altogether, others are seeing sales skyrocket to never before seen levels. Parking lots are packed and hopeful shoppers are waiting hours for their chance to get their hands on weapons, parts and magazines that may soon be banned under Federal mandates.

The following photos taken over a three day period at a local gun store give us a glimpse of just how fast gun stores are clearing out their inventory. According to the shop owner who took these pictures, their store was selling upwards of one thousand guns per day.

Here’s how the store looked on the Sunday before the frenzy:

On Monday:

By Tuesday, shelves were almost clean:

Magazines, especially high capacity magazines, are selling at such a rapid pace that supply and demand has led some retailers to charge three times as much for a single magazine then they did just a week prior to the frenzy....

MIT Discovers a New State of Matter with a New Kind of Magnetism: Quantum Spin Liquid

Posted on Dec 21, 2012 in Science & Technology

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Researchers at MIT have discovered a new state of matter with a new kind of magnetism. This new state, called a quantum spin liquid (QSL), could lead to significant advances in data storage. QSLs also exhibit a quantum phenomenon called long-range entanglement, which could lead to new types of communications systems, and more.

Generally, when we talk about magnetism’s role in the realm of technology, there are just two types: Ferromagnetism and antiferromagnetism. Ferromagnetism has been known about for centuries, and is the underlying force behind your compass’s spinning needle or the permanent bar magnets you played with at school. In ferromagnets, the spin (i.e. charge) of every electron is aligned in the same direction, causing two distinct poles. In antiferromagnets, neighboring electrons point in the opposite direction, causing the object to have zero net magnetism (pictured below). In combination with ferromagnets, antiferromagnets are used to create spin valves: the magnetic sensors used in hard drive heads.

Antiferromagnetic orderingIn the case of quantum spin liquids, the material is a solid crystal — but the internal magnetic state is constantly in flux....

Top Online Gun Retailer Suspends Sales of Firearms, “Effective Immediately” – Hayden’s Note Attached

Online retailer Cheaper Than Dirt!, one of the world’s largest sporting goods stores and a top online gun distributor, has suspended sales of firearms as of Tuesday.

Hayden’s Note:

Want my opinion? Of course you do, otherwise you wouldn’t be here. Ami’rite?

Here goes: Cheaper Than Dirt, being one of the largest online weapon sellers, gets wind of what’s coming down the pipe regarding how gun purchases are made and decides to get ahead of the curve by adjusting their e-commerce approach and sales protocols.  If, and this is a big IF – the White House and Powers That Be implement any sort of weapon ban, you can be sure that online sales, if still legal in any form, will radically change.  This represents a massive investment for companies such as Cheaper Than Dirt. Imagine redesigning your entire business’ way of making money, and you realize in order to minimize down time, they better get to work.

This also suggests to me, and I rarely talk about “Obama gun bans”, that it is hurtling down the proverbial pipe at warp speed and something concrete will be enacted sooner, rather than later.

Hayden’s Note on the Connecticut Shootings, Dead Babies, and US Foreign Policy

Posted on Dec 14, 2012 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Global & National News, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

I was approached by a reader of the website last night who lamented on my lack of personal commentary lately.  He added that he had hoped to hear my opinions regarding the Presidential election and other current events, but that TruthisTreason.net had completely ignored politics recently.  I had to agree; I have intentionally avoided the typical political commentary because, quite frankly, I’m moved beyond that for the most part.  For years, I waved my signs, took part in street actions to raise awareness, wrote articles, and took part in the election cycle as a state delegate.

These days, I’ve simply let go of the stranglehold that politics has on so many Americans. It no longer concerns me because I feel as though we are too far gone to ever get back on track, and so aside from the occasional piece on national events, I doubt you’ll see “in-depth” coverage on the Left vs. Right Paradigm; the stage show known as American politics.

However,

In wake of today’s shooting events, I wanted to take a moment to share some opinions and perspectives on not only the direct topic, but the bigger picture, as well....

One of my biggest passions is alternative architecture and radical self-reliance.  I try to showcase it regularly here on TruthisTreason.net, but it’s been awhile since I have posted a good collection of projects.  So, without further ado, here are a few abodes that have caught my eye recently!

Bootjack Cabin

The story of a young couple building a modern cabin off the grid in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

We are Caleb and Marci Larsen. We met in art school and got married in 2003. In the past eight years we’ve lived in Kalamazoo, MI, Portland, ME, Seattle, WA, Providence, RI, Tulum, Mexico, Hancock, MI, and now, Calumet, MI. This nomadic lifestyle has mostly been for fun, to experience different cities and parts of the world.

We’ve decided to build a cabin (‘camp’ in local parlance) and will be blogging about the experience. From our inspirations, plans, triumphs, to our failures, frustrations, and utter devastations – this is our return to Bootjack.

FDA Quietly Increases Allowed Radiation Doses of Meats for Human Consumption

Posted on Dec 12, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Rather than actually take the time to address the root causes of meat and poultry contamination, which more often than not are a direct result of outrageously unsanitary factory farming practices, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has instead decided to simply up the doses of radiation that industrial food producers are allowed to blast on their filthy, contaminated meat products.

In the first new rule recently published in the Federal Register, the FDA specifies that “unrefrigerated uncooked meat” can now be irradiated right alongside refrigerated, frozen and cooked meat. And in the second new rule, the FDA increases the amount of ionizing radiation that can be applied to poultry products such as chicken by 50 percent, bumping the dosage up to 4.5 kilograys (kGy) of radiation from the previous 3.0 kGy.

You can view the two published rules here:
http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2012-11-30/pdf/2012-28967.pdf

These two rules, which were enacted quietly and without any media fanfare (big surprise), come more than a decade after the U.S. Department of Agriculture‘s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) first petitioned the FDA for their passage back in 1999....

Israeli Airstrike on Home ‘Was a Clear Violation of the Laws of War’

Posted on Dec 12, 2012 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Global & National News, Police, Military, & War

An Israeli airstrike that killed 12 civilians – the largest number of civilians killed in a single attack during the Gaza fighting in November – was a clear violation of the laws of war.

On November 18, 2012, Israeli forces dropped what appears to have been a large aerial bomb on the three-story home of the Dalu family in Gaza City, killing 10 members of the household – one man, five women, and four children. A young man and an elderly woman of the Muzannar family next door were also killed.

At first the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said they were attacking a Hamas fighter named Yahia Abayah. Eight days later the IDF said the target had been the man killed in the house, Mohamed Jamal al-Dalu, whom they called a “terror operative” for Hamas without providing supporting information. Even if al-Dalu, a low-ranking police officer, was a legitimate military target under the laws of war, the likelihood that the attack on a civilian home would have killed large numbers of civilians made it unlawfully disproportionate, Human Rights Watch said....

As I have been immersed in writing ‘Patriot Dawn’, it occurred to me that I have not posted recently, so I pulled this excerpt out of Rapid Fire!: Tactics for High Threat, Protection and Combat Operations.  I was writing about an urban defense/battle scenario as part of the storyline, and this came to mind.

This is merely a way of pulling off a dismounted, anti-armor ambush. The described technique assumes that you have some form of anti-armor weapons system, such as a rocket.

Urban Anti-Armor Ambush

The aim of the anti-armor ambush is to destroy some or at minimum one advancing enemy armored vehicle and escape, not take on the whole enemy column, thus slowing them down and causing harassment and attrition.
The urban anti-armor (anti-tank) ambush is a specialist technique designed for an urban environment. Such an environment has, by design, streets, buildings, side streets and alleyways. These side streets or alleyways create natural defilade. They also create multiple decision points for the approaching enemy armor. The elements of an urban anti-armor ambush are the early warning, kill team, and cover group....

Zombie Entertainment: a Lesson in Cognitive Dissonance

Posted on Dec 11, 2012 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts, Movies, TV, & Video Games

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Zombies are the new vampires in the entertainment world, but unlike pop culture vampires, they don’t sparkle, they aren’t sexy and brooding, and you don’t want to turn into one.

The most popular show in cable TV history is The Walking Dead. Dozens, if not hundreds, of zombies are slain in every episode.  Head shots are taken with no more compunction than swatting as mosquito before it lands on your arm. An axe to the skull, a pick through an eye socket, blunt objects, arrows, daggers – anything goes. What’s more, it doesn’t matter if the zombie is a man, woman or child – it must be killed immediately as it staggers hungrily towards you.

Even the US military is getting into the spirit of the Zombie Apocalypse, holding mock disaster drills with the shuffling horde as the enemy.

It’s all in the name of fun, right? Simply entertainment and anyone who says otherwise needs to lighten up, right?

Perhaps not – perhaps we need to take a look at psychological experiments undertaken in the last century to determine whether the Zombie craze is just a big psychological experiment being perpetrated on us....
