HB 157 Signed into Law: Utah to Accept Gold & Silver Bullion as Currency

Utah is now accepting gold and silver as legal tender for transactions and to settle debts according to a bill recently signed into law by Governor Gary R. Herbert. Several other states have proposed similar measures in the wake of the monetary policies of the Federal Reserve and the decreasing value of paper money.

Utah’s law is notable because it is the first such bill to pass. Over 150 years ago, Congress passed the Legal Tender Act, which authorized the use of paper notes to pay bills, and while paper money still retains the value noted, interest rates governing bonds and other savings or investment vehicles are at historic lows and are expected to remain at those lows through at least 2014.

Gold and silver bullion however, are at historically high values and observers expect those values to remain high for some time. House Bill 157 will allow for gold and silver bullion to be used for transactions based on the weight of the amount of metal presented. That is a key distinction because it expands out the use of gold and silver beyond face value on limited runs of precious metal coins offered through the US Treasury....

“There’s always sign.”

Sign is the physical evidence of any disturbance of the environment left behind by animals, humans or objects. The detection of this sign is called sign cutting. A person (or animal) cannot traverse ground without leaving some sort of telltale sign. This sign is what we’re trying to find and track.

When most people think of tracking, they usually think of following footprints. But a trained tracker looks for more. He looks for kicked-over rocks, soil depressions, clothing fibers, changes in vegetation, changes in the environment, ambient noise or lack thereof, etc. Basically, the tracker looks for the disturbance — the sign — left behind by the person or persons being tracked.

Origin

Sign cutting and tracking has been around for millennia. It is a natural extension of hunting, both animals and people. On our continent, Native Americans perfected the art of sign cutting tracking both men and animals. To this day, there are special units of Native American law enforcement trackers protecting this nation....

I have been wanting to cover Malissa’s tiny house story for a while now and have had her on my list to contact. However, Apartment Therapy has invited Malissa to participate in their Small Cool Contest and I wanted to get the word out to you before it was to late to vote. I hope to still get Malissa to tell us her story, but in the mean time, here are a couple of her thoughts about the house: “It’s cozy and comfortable, a great space to do my creative art, while also serving as my perfect retreat.”

Biggest Challenge: “One of the most challenging part of living in a small space with two people and two cats was finding your own place. My house is only 170 square feet, and in a space that small, it’s important that you feel you can go to your own place and do your own thing.”

NSA Whistleblower William Binney on the Expanding Police State

In his first television interview since he resigned from the National Security Agency over its domestic surveillance program, William Binney discusses the NSA’s massive power to spy on Americans and why the FBI raided his home after he became a whistleblower. Binney was a key source for investigative journalist James Bamford’s recent exposé in Wired Magazine about how the NSA is quietly building the largest spy center in the country in Bluffdale, Utah. The Utah spy center will contain near-bottomless databases to store all forms of communication collected by the agency, including private emails, cell phone calls, Google searches and other personal data.

Binney served in the NSA for over 30 years, including a time as technical director of the NSA’s World Geopolitical and Military Analysis Reporting Group. Since retiring from the NSA in 2001, he has warned that the NSA’s data-mining program has become so vast that it could “create an Orwellian state.” Today marks the first time Binney has spoken on national television about NSA surveillance.

Welfare State: Entitlements Rise 70% Since 2007

The Congressional Budget Office said Thursday that 45 million people in 2011 received Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, a 70% increase from 2007. It  said the number of people receiving the benefits, commonly known as food stamps, would continue growing until 2014.

Spending for the program, not including administrative costs, rose to $72 billion in 2011, up from $30 billion four years earlier. The CBO projected that one in seven U.S. residents received food stamps last year.

In a report, the CBO said roughly two-thirds of jump in spending was tied to an increase in the number of people participating in the program, which provides access to food for the poor, elderly, and disabled. It said another 20% “of the growth in spending can be attributed to temporarily higher benefit amounts enacted in the” 2009 stimulus law.

OKC Bombing Memorial: Tribute or Homeland Security Indoctrination?

17th Anniversary of the Oklahoma City Bombing

Taking a cue from the Transportation Security Administration, Homeland Security’s Federal Protective Police were out in force, “protecting us,” at the 17th anniversary of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

I met up with the film crew of A Noble Lie and we handed out 500 copies of their new documentary while engaging in numerous conversations with passerby’s.  It would seem as though Oklahomans are finally starting to question the official story of the 1995 bombing, with a common theme of, “McVeigh was not alone…”

I’ll admit, I was surprised amused at the level of Federal law enforcement surrounding the event.  DHS had five members of a tactical unit patrolling the area in their black ninja outfits, along with casually dressed DEA agents, local police and sheriff’s deputies, private security, and several black suits running around like Secret Service agents on Colombian cocaine.

And if that weren’t enough to make you feel safe, Homeland Security was kind enough to park a large, mobile command center on the west side of the Memorial… just in case the unthinkable were to happen....

High Fructose Corn Syrup isn’t Sugar: The Lawsuits and Health Effects

* Sugar growers seek an injunction over HFCS advertising

* HFCS group stands behind its ads

Sugar producers think recent marketing efforts by manufacturers of high-fructose corn syrup aren’t so sweet.

In a lawsuit filed last year, three sugar distributors say that equating HFCS with real sugar — with slogans like “your body can’t tell the difference” — misleads consumers, trying to offset growing customer concerns about obesity and diabetes.

Audrae Erickson, president of the Corn Refiners Association, said the lawsuit is without merit, as HFCS and sugar are nutritionally and metabolically equivalent.

“Sugar is sugar,” Erickson said.

Hayden’s Note:

Ms. Erickson recently contacted me regarding my upcoming article on high fructose corn syrup, GMO corn, and how sugars effect the human body. The email was certainly attempting to persuade my opinion on HFCS’ effects.  But that’s what lobbyists are paid to do, right?  The Corn Refiners’ Association essentially represents the entire HFCS industry and is little more than a massive lobbying and PR front....

Metro Bus Program: Undercover TSA Agents Searching Bags, Interrogating Passengers

Posted on Apr 18, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

A new program in Houston will place undercover TSA agents and police officers on buses to perform bag searches, watch for “suspicious activity,” and interrogate passengers in order to ‘curb crime and terrorism’.

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee unveiled the program, labeled Bus Safe.

Hayden’s Note:

Welcome to the Police State.  Officers will now search your bags, question your motives, and invade your constitutional privacy in the name of preventing “terrorism” on buses and trains, via the criminal-laden TSA.  In reality, it is a conditioning effort.

It would not end pretty if I were riding the bus and was harassed by TSA goons, frisked without probable cause, or even reasonable suspicion, and questioned as if I were a common thug. I would likely end up in jail with severe injuries.  Let’s see… 1st, 4th, and 5th Amendment violations so far…

“While local law enforcement agencies focus on overall safety measures noted above, representatives with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will also be on hand, lending their counter-terrorism expertise and support during the exercise,” states the press release....

House Intel Chair: Google Secretly Backs CISPA (Duh!)

After Google played a central role in the campaign in rallying the public against the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), the House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Mike Rogers (R – MI) claims that Google is secretly supporting the bill many are calling “SOPA 2.

Hayden’s Note:

You can file this one under, “Duh!”  Google recently tried appealing to the common man and acting as though they were staunchly against CISPA.  I’ve learned to distrust any mega-corporation, especially one that has such bedroom-ties to the NSA, cyber-security, politics, and an endless checkbook… especially when they can profit handsomely from getting the bill passed.

They’ve been helpful and supportive of trying to find the right language in the bill,” Rogers said of Google, who declined to comment one way or the other on the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), the new bill.

The bill aims primarily at the sharing of private information, empowering the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to collect data from private companies on anything they decide is a “cyber threat.”

Terry Yeakey was a giant of a man with a heart as big as the rest of him. I wish I had known him. He was a crusader for truth. Whenever his name is mentioned, I think of the news photo of him sprinting down NW 5th Street toward the Murrah Building on another of the many rescue missions he performed that ugly day. In his gray uniform, he tends to remind us of a NFL linebacker about to put the sack on an unfortunate quarterback, but this is quickly overridden by the grave concern on the face of a policeman in a panic to save lives.

Hayden’s Note:

Along with a doctor and several other citizens, Terry began pulling survivors out of the rubble. What he saw either during the explosion or at the scene started him on a path that ultimately led to his death.  Many of his statements over the next year would hint that he had discovered something at the scene that was in direct conflict with the official story.

Autism Linked to High Fructose Corn Syrup, Industrial Food

Posted on Apr 17, 2012 in Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Source: Common Dreams

A new study by Clinical Epigenetics, a peer-reviewed journal that focuses largely on diseases, has found that the rise in autism in the United States could be linked to the industrial food system, specifically the prevalence of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) in the American diet. The study, published yesterday online, explores how mineral deficiencies could impact how the human body rids itself of common toxic chemicals like mercury and pesticides. The report comes just after a different report, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, documented a startling rise in autism in the United States.

The report’s key findings:

  • Autism and related disorders affect brain development. The current study sought to determine how environmental and dietary factors, like HFCS consumption, might combine to contribute to the disorder.
  • Consumption of HFCS, for example, is linked to the dietary loss of zinc, which interferes with the elimination of heavy metals from the body. Many heavy metals like mercury, arsenic and cadmium are potent toxins with adverse effects on brain development in the young.
  • HFCS consumption can also impact levels of other beneficial minerals, including calcium.

Michigan Govt Unleashes Armed Raids on Small Pig Farmers

Why does the state respond to people who sell homekilled meat in the same way that it responds to people who violently attack the state? … It’s because ubiquitous, small scale agriculture represents a greater threat to state power than armed resistance.

Via: Natural News:

NaturalNews can now confirm that the Michigan Department of Natural Resources has, in total violation of the Fourth Amendment, conducted two armed raids on pig farmers in that state, one in Kalkaska County at Fife Lake and another in Cheboygan County. Staging raids involving six vehicles and ten armed men, DNA conducted unconstitutional, illegal and arguably criminal armed raids on these two farms with the intent of shooting all the farmers’ pigs under a bizarre new “Invasive Species Order” (ISO) that has suddenly declared traditional livestock to be an invasive species....

The Urban Farming Guys: Foraging and Mushrooms

Posted on Apr 13, 2012 in Health, Food News, & Big Pharma, Urban Gardening, Farming & Homesteading

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

This is a great video from the crew over at The Urban Farming Guys.  If you’re not familiar with them, I urge you to check out their previous videos on how they have taken 20 families, moved them into the ghettos of Kansas City, and transformed the neighborhood into a thriving, sustainable community farming project!  I really envy this crew and think they are doing amazing things!

This video is a short foraging/raw food expedition about mushrooms and morels.  They went into the woods near Kansas City and found over 200 morels!  These mushrooms easily run close to $50 per pound at fine grocery stores and restaurants and over $200/lb. on Amazon.com!

My favorite part?  The little kid at 2:59. “I found’em… in da’woods!”

Go here for more information about the Urban Farming Guys and their massive undertaking of purchasing an inner city, run-down school, multiple city lots and the programs they are implementing. They certainly have the stamp of approval and support from TruthisTreason.net!...

Boston Dynamics Killer DARPA Robot #3,721 Climbs Stairs – No Where is Safe!

Posted on Apr 12, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Science & Technology

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Designed and built from DARPA funding, Boston Dynamics’ newest robot can climb stairs, making no where safe for you to hide… even if it walks like an angry 5 year old.

I wasn’t exaggerating last week when I said these killer robots would become a regular thing…

Via Boston Dynamics:

A modified platform resembling these robots is expected to be used as government-funded equipment (GFE) for performers in Tracks B and C of the DARPA Maximum Mobility and Manipulation Robotics Challenge that will be held soon.

The GFE Platform is expected to have two arms, two legs, a torso and a head, and will be physically capable of performing all of the tasks required for disaster response scenarios scheduled in the Challenge.

Is our lovely government prepping for a major disaster in a few years and just hasn’t told us?...
