Wisconsin Democrats Flee State to Avoid Voting on Anti-Union Bill and Emergency Budget

Posted on Feb 17, 2011 in Political Issues

Hayden’s Note at end

The farce over the Wisconsin anti-union vote has just passed into the surreal. According to the AP, democrat lawmakers, who are firmly opposed to voting on the bill which is said to already have majority support, and who have been boycotting the vote by being absent from the state capitol, have now escalated and patriotically left the state. The reason is that while the vote can not take place without at least one Democrat being present, the police had been sent out earlier, with orders to sequester the democrats.

The democrat response: run away. As the AP reports: “Senate Republicans can’t vote on the bill unless at least one Democrat is present.  Police could be dispatched to retrieve them, but it was unclear if they would have the authority to cross state lines.

So to all who were expecting the latest iteration of members of the executive class to run away (with or without gold) to come from Africa or the Middle East, will be disappointed: it was in America’s very own back yard....

Former CIA Analyst Ray McGovern Arrested and Beaten at Hillary Clinton’s Lecture About Free Speech

Posted on Feb 17, 2011 in Political Issues

TruthisTreason.net - Kevin Hayden

As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lectured about freedom to the rest of the world at George Washington University and condemed governments that arrest protestors and do not allow free expression, 71-year-old Ray McGovern was seized from the audience right in front of her by police and an unknown official in plain clothes.  He was brutalized and left bleeding in jail.  And yet Hillary never even paused; didn’t skip a beat in her speech. 

When Secretary Clinton began her lecture to the world, Ray McGovern was standing silently in the audience and turned his back to her.  Mr. McGovern, a veteran Army Officer who also worked for the CIA for 27 years, was wearing a “Veterans for Peace” t-shirt.

McGovern discussed his protest and subsequent arrest at Secretary Clinton’s “Freedom Speech” in an interview with blogger Rob Kall.

“I turned my back to her and stood [silently]. When she came in, I not only remained standing but I turned my back to her… I didn’t think that would get me roughed up and arrested for disorderly conduct.” 

He was suddenly grabbed by security officers and police. ...

Giant X Class Solar Flare Headed for Earth

Posted on Feb 16, 2011 in - Physics & the Universe

Source: Wired

The biggest solar blast in four years erupted late Monday, and it’s sending jets of charged particles right at Earth. The spray will spark bright auroras when it hits the magnetosphere in the next 24 to 48 hours.

A cluster of sunspots called Active Region 1158 unleashed the flare at 8:50 p.m. EST, Feb. 14 [1:50 a.m. UT, Feb. 15]. It was categorized as class X2.2, meaning it’s the most powerful flare since December 2006. The sunspots have continued to let loose smaller flares and may still be active now.

As Spaceweather.com notes, the sunspots didn’t even exist one week ago, and now cover a swatch of sun wider than Jupiter.

NOAA forecasters estimate a 45 percent chance of geomagnetic activity on Thursday, Feb. 17, when the bulk of the radiation hits Earth’s magnetic field. The December 2006 storm was powerful enough to disrupt GPS systems

Should the new storm prove as powerful, it could be a preview of what’s expected this year and in 2012, as the sun reaches an expected maximum in its natural cycle of activity....

TruthisTreason.net – Kevin Hayden

I’ve decided to do something a bit different with my Social Networking category.  I had done away with it for the most part, but decided to revive it in a new form.  Instead of focusing on news and politics as it relates to social networking sites, I’ve decided to use it as the name implies – networking.  When social networking really debuted, it was intended to connect people with similar networks – or circles.  It was designed to help people move up in the world or put others in touch with someone that could help.  It connected photographers with models, technicians to people with problems and managers to employees.

I am going to pick random people, projects and events to showcase and hopefully help their cause or product.  As cliche as it sounds, I got into police work due to my passion for helping others.  Maybe this will help some people out in this tough economy!

Food Prices at Dangerous Levels – Hayden’s Note on Corn, Health and Ethanol

Posted on Feb 16, 2011 in Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

Source: Associated Press

Editorial by TruthisTreason.net – Kevin Hayden

Global food prices have hit “dangerous levels” that could contribute to political instability, push millions of people into poverty and raise the cost of groceries, according to a new report from the World Bank.

The bank released a report Tuesday that said global food prices have jumped 29 percent in the past year, and are just 3 percent below the all-time peak hit in 2008. Bank President Robert Zoellick said the rising prices have hit people hardest in the developing world because they spend as much as half their income on food.

“Food prices are the key and major challenge facing many developing countries today,” Zoellick said. The World Bank estimates higher prices for corn, wheat and oil have pushed 44 million people into extreme poverty since last June.

The World Bank’s food price index rose by 15 percent between October and January alone. The increase has been driven by volatile global trading in wheat, corn and soybeans. Global corn futures more than doubled since this summer, from $3.50 to $7 a bushel, in part because of higher demand from developing countries and a growing biofuels industry....

CBS News Reporter Sexually Assaulted and Beaten Amid Protest Crowd in Egypt

Posted on Feb 15, 2011 in Global & National News

On Friday February 11, the day Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak stepped down, CBS correspondent Lara Logan was covering the jubilation in Tahrir Square for a “60 Minutes” story when she and her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration. It was a mob of more than 200 people whipped into frenzy. 

In the crush of the mob, she was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. She reconnected with the CBS team, returned to her hotel and returned to the United States on the first flight the next morning. She is currently in the hospital recovering.

There will be no further comment from CBS News and correspondent Logan and her family respectfully request privacy at this time.

JP Morgan Has Perfect Trading Half of 2010, Only Lost Money on 8 Days

For those wondering why nobody wants to trade ever again on what are now purely legalized fraud markets (and thank god Ze Germans are dumb enough to buy them at any price), here is the reason:


In other words, of 260 trading days in 2010, the firm lost money on 8, or 3.1%. In yet other words, the firm made money 96.9% of the time. We’ll repeat that: JPM made money 96.9% of the time.

Hayden’s Note:

Add in their well-documented silver price manipulation and you can start seeing JP Morgan for what they truly are: market manipulating fraudsters of the highest order.  They are also one of the largest shareholders of the Federal Reserve.

Wisconsin National Guard Preps for Worker Unrest After Governor Unveils Emergency Budget

Posted on Feb 15, 2011 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War

Source: Business Insider

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, unveiled an emergency budget proposal Friday to deal with the state’s growing budget woes. Wisconsin has a $137 million deficit this year, and faces a projected $2.9 billion budget shortfall for 2012 and 2013.

Under Walker’s plan, public employees would lose all of their collective bargain rights, except a limited negotiation of wages. State workers would also have to contribute more to their pension and health care benefit plans.

Unions erupted in outrage as they learned about Walker’s proposal. The Governor told Milwaukee Public Radio that he has briefed the Wisconsin National Guard to prepare them for any worker unrest today.

Hayden’s Note:

I don’t really have any sympathy for union workers.  While there is a fine, fine balance between the benefits of the free-market and from the union-idea, I find that the free market wins.  If the unions would be a bit more reasonable in their prices, I would support them, but they seem to cause more trouble than solution in my opinion.  Comments?...

US State Dept Tweets to Iran, Tries to Stir Up Protests

Posted on Feb 14, 2011 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Social Networking

Source: Activist Post

The US State Department has begun sending Twitter messages to Iranians, alluding to the “historic role” social media have played in mass protests against Iran’s 2009 disputed presidential polls.

The Twitter feeds began Sunday as US officials accused Iran of hypocrisy by supporting the anti-government revolt in Egypt but seeking to prevent anti-government demonstrations in Iran.

Hayden’s Note:

Gee, imagine that.  The State Department is trying to stir up problems and create drama in Iran.  Pretty bold of them to do it so openly on Twitter.  But, that’s a sign of the times we’re in.  The intelligence and defense community can openly taunt other countries, on social media and get away with it.  This is a blatant attempt to create another “color-coded revolution.”

On the Twitter account, USAdarFarsi, the State Department said it “recognizes historic role of social media among Iranians We want to join in your conversations.”

In another Tweet, the State Department said: “Iran has shown that the activities it praised Egyptians for it sees as illegal, illegitimate for its own people.”

In a third Tweet, it said “US calls on Iran to allow people to enjoy same universal rights to peacefully assemble, demonstrate as in Cairo.”

In Tehran, riot police on Monday fired tear gas and shot paintballs at protesters who turned what they said was a Tehran rally in support of Arab revolts into an anti-government demonstration, witnesses said....

Judge Finds MERS Has No Right to Transfer Mortgages, Finds Entire MERS Process Illegal

Posted on Feb 14, 2011 in Economic News

Source: Zero Hedge

There was a time when news, especially very bad news, moved stocks. The last time that occurred was in the middle of 2009, before most robots had any idea just how massive Bernanke’s schizoid break with reality was. Now, that the appropriate sociopathology is fully priced in, bad news tends to have an even more profound upside impact on stocks than good news, as it guarantees that the Zimbabwe stock market will be upon us far sooner than if the economy were to have to go through another inter-QE episode. Which is why the just released news out of US Bankruptcy Judge Robert Grossman of Central Islip, New York, that MERS lacks rights to transfer mortgages will likely send the entire S&P circuit breaker up.

From Bloomberg:

“Merscorp Inc., operator of the electronic-registration system that contains about half of all U.S. home mortgages, has no right to transfer the mortgages under its membership rules, a judge said…U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert E. Grossman in Central Islip, New York, in a decision he said he knew would have a “significant impact,” wrote that the membership rules of the company’s Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, or MERS, don’t make it an agent of the banks that own the mortgages…”

“MERS’s theory that it can act as a ‘common agent’ for undisclosed principals is not supported by the law,” Grossman wrote in a Feb.

Highlights of the $3.73 Trillion Budget Request for 2012

Posted on Feb 14, 2011 in Political Issues

Source: Associated Press

A look at what President Barack Obama has requested in his $3.73 trillion budget for the 2012 fiscal year beginning Oct. 1.

Summary: Homeland Security gets $44 Billion with a priority on naked body scanners.  The Transportation Department gets over a half Trillion dollars for new highway and rail construction, including $53 billion for high-speed trains.  $500 million will go to the new Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and Enforcement (See my article on LOST.) and NIST, the group that dropped the ball on the Sept. 11th investigation will be getting $764 million, roughly a 17% increase from last year.


Agency: NASA

Spending: $18.7 billion

Percentage Change from 2011: 0.9 percent decrease

Discretionary Spending: $18.7 billion

Highlights: Obama’s space budget is about the same as the previous year, avoiding the major proposed cuts other agencies are facing, partly because of the long planned retirement of the space shuttle fleet. With Obama continuing a Bush administration decision to stop flying the 30-year-old shuttles, NASA can then shift the couple billion dollars it has been spending yearly to launch shuttles to other projects....

A Glass of Wine Each Day Helps Prevent Diabetes

Posted on Feb 14, 2011 in Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

Source: Natural News


A single glass of red wine may be as effective at controlling blood sugar as standard diabetes drugs, according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences in Vienna, Austria.

Previous research has shown that red wine, grape skins and red grape juice are high in plant chemicals called polyphenols. These antioxidants have been shown to help the body regulate blood sugar, and may thereby help prevent or control diabetes. In the current study, researchers studied the action of grape polyphenols on a cell receptor called PPAR-gamma, which plays an important role in blood sugar regulation, energy storage and fat storage. They found that even a small glass of wine has enough polyphenols to activate the receptor at least as effectively as the diabetes drug Avandia.

The researchers also compared the polyphenol content of 12 different wines, confirming the popular wisdom that concentrations are higher in red wine.

“This is further scientific evidence that a small amount of wine really is beneficial for health,” researcher Alois Jungbauer said.

David Icke: There Has Been NO Revolution in Egypt

Posted on Feb 14, 2011 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts

Source: David Icke


I have been watching the understandable euphoria in Egypt live on Al Jazeera television, but please, there must be a sense of perspective here – and urgently.

There has been NO REVOLUTION so far – a despicable tyrant has gone, but the army that imposed the will of that despicable tyrant for 30 years is now in charge and the Egyptian army is not only controlled by the US, it is funded by massive American military ‘aid’ – second only in scale to Israel.

It is true that the army didn’t fire on the demonstrators as it would have done before, but it did so at the time that its masters in America were calling for Mubarak to step down, in effect, and for the protesters to be left alone. Why did the US government do this after supporting the tyrant for 30 years? Because they want ‘regime change’ in Egypt as part of a domino effect across the whole Middle East to advance a much bigger agenda.

Mubarak’s demise was announced by his vice-president, the US puppet, Omar Suleiman, the head of the vicious and murderous Egyptian General Intelligence Directorate that as well as controlling the population through sheer terror also accepted Muslim detainees arrested by the US to be tortured in Egypt in ways that would have been illegal in America – the so called ‘Extraordinary Rendition’....
