Fort Hood Vendetta

Truth is Treason.net

[Editorial note at end of story]

By now, you’ve heard about the mass shooting at the Ft. Hood Army Base in Texas on the 5th of November.  Like you, when I first heard about it, my imagination went into overdrive.  Was it a terrorist event?  Could it have actually been a U.S. soldier that committed this crime?  Was the base security breached by outsiders intent on inflicting as much damage as possible?  These were my initial thoughts, but then my brain went into 2nd gear and I realized it was November the 5th.  This day holds a special meaning to several people, especially those who are involved with the ‘Liberty Movement’ and Tea Parties or fans of the movie ‘V for Vendetta’.


You might recall the 5th of November was when Guy Fawkes [and others] attempted to blow up Parliament in the Gunpowder Plot of 1605.  Their goal was to displace Protestant rule by blowing up the Houses of Parliament while King James I and the entire Protestant, and even most of the Catholic, aristocracy and nobility were inside....

Gold hits $1,101.27 – Another New Record! Thumbnail

Gold hits $1,101.27 – Another New Record!

Posted on Nov 06, 2009 in Economic News

Gold prices crept past the $1,100 mark earlier today for the first time in history, peaking at $1,101.27 and settling around the $1,097 mark (which is still higher than yesterday’s record!)

Price of Gold

 This rise in gold prices was triggered by reports today from the U.S. Labor Department that the nation’s unemployment rate rose more than expected last month to 10.2%. This was the highest rise in unemployment since April 1983 and was 0.3% higher than economists had originally forecast.  High unemployment, coupled with the continued decline of the U.S. Dollar, has fueled Gold’s attractiveness to already concerned U.S. investors.

Active Shooter; Disgruntled Ex-Employee Kills 1, Wounds 5 in Orlando

Posted on Nov 06, 2009 in Featured Articles

(AP) – Police in Orlando say a gunman has been apprehended after killing one person and injuring five others at a downtown office building where he was let go two years ago.

Police Chief Val Demings says 40-year-old Jason Rodriguez surrendered to police at his mother’s home after officers saw him through a window and asked him to come out.

She confirms that one person was killed in the shooting at the Legion Place office building downtown. Five others were hurt.

Some of the employees still barricaded inside the Legions Place office building in downtown Orlando have posted messages on Twitter and Facebook to let their friends and family members know they are safe.

At 1:20 p.m., James Shapiro, a senior producer at Fox Sports Florida, whose offices are in the building, wrote the following on his Twitter page:

“Friends & fam, hope to be evac’ed soon.. we are fine & calm. #Orlandoshooting #Orlando”

A few minutes later, he wrote on his profile that he and other employees were “locked in and safe.”

Shapiro’s colleague, Whit Watson, a Sun Sports broadcaster who does Orlando Magic games, also updated friends through Twitter by writing the following at 1:37 p.m....

36 Million Americans on Food Stamps; New Record

Posted on Nov 05, 2009 in Economic News

By Christopher Doering

The number of Americans receiving food stamp assistance soared above 36 million for the first time in August, the eighth month in a row that enrollment set a record, the U.S. Agriculture Department said on Wednesday.

USDA said 36.492 million people were receiving food stamps, also known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. In July, enrollment stood at 35.851 million. At the current rate, an estimated one in eight Americans receive benefits.

The program, which helps poor people buy food, has seen enrollment jump by 4.707 million during 2009 amid a lingering economic downturn in the United States. Participation grew by 2 million people from May to August.

In the latest data, the average person received $132.99 in August, compared with $101.31 in August 2008....

Hayden’s Note: Remember, remember…. the 5th of November.  Is it any coincidence that this is Guy Fawkes Day?  A celebrated holiday in which Guy Fawkes rises against the ‘system’ by attempting to blow up a government building? Also, it has become a hallmark for Tea Parties, Money Bombs, Libertarians, etc.  Let’s see how this will be spun, shall we?

Homebuyers Credit, Jobless Benefits To Be Extended

Posted on Nov 05, 2009 in Economic News

The White House says President Obama on Friday will sign a bill that expands a popular homebuyers tax credit and extends unemployment benefits. Congress on Thursday completed work on the $24 billion economic package that seeks to help out the millions who have lost jobs and have been unable to rejoin the workforce. Hayden's Note:  Is it just me, or does anyone else hear that giant sucking sound?  Oh wait, that's our future swirling down the drain.  Honestly, I don't have a HUGE problem with the homebuyer's credit.  And no, I have not taken part in it nor plan to, but for a wrecked economy and destroyed housing market (due in large part by the very ones acting so god-like to save us) this was a spending bill/stimulus that actually motivated some people to either buy a new home or sta

Mystery Flu Cases in Ukraine Double in 2 Days

Posted on Nov 05, 2009 in Global & National News

478,456 Influenza/ARI

24,003 Hospitalized

60 Ventilators

81 Deaths

The above numbers are from the latest update from Ukraine.  The number of infected patients has almost doubled to just under ½ million, compared to the report two days ago (see map).  Hospitalized patients also have spiked higher, to 24K from 15K.  ICU cases are not listed, but 60 on ventilators are.  However, most (37) of those on ventilators are Chernivisti Oblast, but Lviv, which has the most fatalities and cases, has none, suggesting the data is incomplete or there are significant shortages of ventilators.  The number of dead has risen to 81, but media reports describe additional fatalities, include those in the Kiev Oblast.

The explosion of cases again raises concerns that the number of fatalities is significantly higher than the 81 listed.  Media reports have described an equal number of pneumonia fatalities which were not considered flu related.  The basis of these exclusions remains unclear.  Similarly, anecdotal reports suggest the number of fatalities is markedly higher than the 81 in the table.

The rapid rise in reported infections, hospitalizations, and deaths in the past few days raise concerns that the virus is transmitting very efficiently. ...

U.S. Woes Cut Cash Flow From Mexican Migrants

Posted on Nov 04, 2009 in Economic News

Mexico's economy relies heavily on money flowing back to the country from workers in the U.S. The recession has hit these remittances hard. But as the U.S. recession fades, more Mexican men are traveling north to look for work as Mexico's severe downturn lingers. Hayden's note:  Soo, what they're really trying to say is that it's America's fault; it's our failing economy that is hurting Mexico and causing more illegal immigrants to flood our country?  Another way to look at it is that it equals more of the legal immigrants sending money BACK to Mexico and leaving OUR economy.  I love how they use the term 'remittance' about a dozen times in the full article.  Hmmmm.

V Strikes Similar Chord to Obama Mania

Posted on Nov 04, 2009 in Movies, TV, & Video Games

By Glenn Garvin – McClatchy/Tribune News

November 3, 2009

Imagine this. At a time of political turmoil, a charismatic, telegenic new leader arrives virtually out of nowhere. He offers a message of hope and reconciliation based on compromise and promises to marshal technology for a better future that will include universal health care.

The news media swoons in admiration — one simpering anchorman even shouts at a reporter who asks a tough question: “Why don’t you show some respect?!” The public is likewise smitten, except for a few nut cases who circulate batty rumors on the Internet about the leader’s origins and intentions. The leader, undismayed, offers assurances that are soothing, if also just a tiny bit condescending: “Embracing change is never easy.”

So, does that sound like anyone you know? Oh, wait — did I mention the leader is secretly a totalitarian space lizard who’s come here to eat us?

Welcome to ABC’s “V,” the most fascinating and bound to be the most controversial new show of the fall television season. Nominally a rousing sci-fi space opera about alien invaders bent on the conquest (and digestion) of all humanity, it’s also a barbed commentary on Obamamania that will infuriate the president’s supporters and delight his detractors....

11th Body Found in Cleveland Home; Serial Rapist / Killer

Posted on Nov 04, 2009 in Global & National News

Source: CNN Partial remains of an 11th body have been found at the Cleveland, Ohio, home of a convicted rapist, police said Wednesday. Earlier Wednesday, a judge denied bond to Anthony Sowell, 50, who faces five counts of aggravated murder, rape, felonious assault and kidnapping. Municipal Judge Ronald Adrine said the latest allegations against the convicted rapist are "gruesome" and the "most serious" he has heard in his years on the bench. Dr. Frank Miller, Cuyahoga County coroner, was holding a news conference Wednesday afternoon to reveal the preliminary causes of death for the four bodies discovered Tuesday. Five of the previously discovered victims were strangled, authorities said, while the sixth body was too decomposed to determine the cause of death. All six were Afri

Pelosi Dismisses Democratic Losses in Virginia and New Jersey

Pelosi dismisses Dem losses in Virginia and New Jersey

Source : Politico

Hayden’s Note: I’m sorry, but can Nancy Pelosi truly be this ignorant and in denial?  Read on to understand…

Most House Democrats tried to put a good face on Tuesday’s election results, saying they picked up two more votes for a sweeping health care bill that could be on the floor as early as Friday.

But it can’t make it any easier for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as she works to corral the last holdouts she needs to pass legislation overhauling the nation’s health care system.

Of course, the speaker, who told POLITICO recently she’s “not big on showing weakness,” brushed aside questions about how the Democratic gubernatorial losses in Virginia and New Jersey would impact her final tally and instead trumpeted the two special election House wins. 

“From our perspective, we won last night,” the California Democrat told reporters during a Wednesday photo op. “We had one race that we were engaged in, it was in northern New York, it was a race where a Republican has held the seat since the Civil War....

Elena Desserich, 6 yr old with brain cancer

Elena Desserich, who died from brain cancer at 6 years old



When 6-year-old Elena Desserich was diagnosed with brain cancer, she began hiding hundreds of little love notes around the house for her parents to find after she was gone. Here’s the story:



Just before her sixth birthday, Elena Desserich (right) was diagnosed with brain cancer and given 135 days to live. She lived 255 days, passing away in 2007. After her death, Elena’s parents, Brooke and Keith, found hundreds of notes from Elena hidden around the house — in between CD cases, between bookshelves, in dresser drawers, in backpacks….


“It just felt like a little hug from her, like she was telling us she was looking over us”

Elena left hundreds of notes like these:

Elena’s parents, Brooke and Keith Desserich, have now published these notes in a book called Notes Left Behind to fund a non-profit organization The Cure Starts Now dedicated to fighting pediatric brain cancer....
