Drug Laws Have Trumped Our Constitutional Rights

Michael Lapihuska is facing a sentence that could be as severe as 10 years in prison, not for rape, burglary or assault, but for the possession of a single joint’s worth of marijuana.

Michael suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and has used cannabis for many years to combat the symptoms of his illness. After suffering arrests for possession, he moved to California.

There a doctor recommended he take marijuana for his disorder, and he became a legal patient in the state’s medical marijuana program.

Hayden’s Note:

The War on Drugs has failed miserably and has only increased Mexican and South American Cartels’ capital gains.  As a former police officer, I can attest that far too much time is spent on simple marijuana arrests while home burglaries occur, heroin-traders and junkies roam the streets, and your neighborhood patrolman, instead of waving hello, is patting you down on your own front porch for a joint.

On December 15, 2009, Michael was traveling home to Alabama from California to see his family for Christmas when he was stopped, searched – apparently for no reason – and arrested for possession of one gram of marijuana....

American People to Dems And GOP: Get Out Of Office, You Don’t Speak For Us

Posted on Oct 25, 2010 in Political Issues

Source: InfoWars

A whopping majority of 62% of the American people believe it will be a good thing for the country if almost all incumbents from both parties were removed in the upcoming midterm election.

That is the finding of a new national poll that also reveals over a third would like to see a new political party formed to remove the establishment.

Only 27% said they felt their representative in Congress was the best person for the office.

Furthermore, 43% of the American people do not believe that either party in Congress represents them or their country.

That number rises to a majority of 53% amongst Mainstream voters only.

The survey, conducted by Rasmussen, highlights just how utterly sick of the phony punch and judy political paradigm a plurality of the public has become.

When asked “Is it fair to say that neither party in Congress is the party of the American people?”, only 35% of respondents disagreed with a further 22% saying they are unsure.

When asked if they agreed with the statement “Republicans and Democrats are so much alike that an entirely new party is needed to represent the American people”, 38% responded in the affirmative....

The IMF’s Special Drawing Rights vs. the US Dollar, An Attempt to “Rebalance” the World Economy

Posted on Oct 21, 2010 in Economic News, Federal Reserve & Bankers

Source: Wall Street Journal

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said he would use weekend meetings of G-20 finance ministers to advance efforts to “rebalance” the world economy so it is less reliant on U.S. consumers, to move toward establishing “norms” on exchange-rate policy, and to persuade others the U.S. doesn’t aim to devalue its way to prosperity.

Hayden’s Note:

I stumbled across this late last night and found it pretty interesting.  On the surface, it would actually help ease currency wars and import/export problems faced by America.  It would put many countries on a more-even playing field.  While that sounds good and all, it’s a fairy-tale.  By forcing different currencies to align in value by simple G-20 decree, you undermine sovereignty.  While I will always side with the choice of “more freedom” I have to say – something along these lines might be the only thing to save us.  It would help in our current trade wars and trade deficit, but the world would lose more freedom and choice as a result.  Unfortunately, if by sticking to the “more freedom” approach we fail as a nation and crash, then let it be a lesson for the rebuild....

TIME Magazine: Prospect of Civil War in America “not too far fetched” – Includes Hayden’s Note

Posted on Oct 20, 2010 in Global & National News

Source: TIME & Infowars

With protesters in France entering a seventh day of strikes and demonstrations against draconian austerity measures, many political observers in the U.S. are now wondering how long it will be before similar scenes unfold on American streets, with even Time Magazine now conceding that the prospect of a civil war in the States “doesn’t seem that far fetched”.

To be clear, Stephen Gandel’s article entitled Will the Federal Reserve Cause a Civil War? largely dismisses the possibility that the Fed’s upcoming November 3rd meeting, during which Ben Bernanke is expected to announce a fresh round of money printing, will prompt national uproar, but it doesn’t exactly debunk the notion of longer term social dislocation as a backlash to the crumbling economy, as many are now forecasting.

As we highlighted yesterday in a piece that was later picked up by the Drudge Report, it’s only a matter of time before Americans are hit with almost identical austerity measures to those that have caused the French to set up fuel blockades, stage running battles with riot police, halt air and rail travel, and virtually shut down some areas of the country....

Dozens Fall Sick at Obama Rally, Triage Set Up (Will Obamacare Foot the Bill?)

About three dozen people have been treated for illness during a rally featuring President Obama at Bowie State University.

Hayden’s Note:

It certainly wasn’t the temperatures.  Checking with the National Weather Service, I found it to be in the high 70’s/low 80’s – pretty mild.  Maybe they just got swept up in the excitement of the exalted Chosen One visiting their little town?  Maybe they became ill after hearing more empty promises of Hope and Change?  Maybe Obamacare will foot the bill for the triage and dozens of ambulances?  Hmmmmm.

Funny how no other media is reporting this – only the fact he spoke at an incumbent rally.

Prince George’s County Fire and EMS spokesman Mark Brady tells WTOP numerous ambulances have been sent to the rally after people started fainting and became dizzy.

The problems could be related to warmer temperatures today. Brady says crowds at the rally were outside and packed shoulder to shoulder.

Two people have been taken to the hospital so far, Brady says. The rest have been treated at the scene.  Officials have set up a triage area inside the gymnasium at Bowie State....

Gold and the Currency Markets

Posted on Sep 29, 2010 in Economic News

Source: Global Research

It is interesting to watch Wall Street defy reality. This is a scene we’ve observed since the early 1960s, the effect of debt on the economy and the nation and in turn on its currency. The result of the profligacy over all those years is the biggest bull market in history in gold and silver. As we write gold is toying with $1,300 and silver with $21.50. Each day a new high is reached in spite of a pending options expiration and the perpetual market rigging and manipulation by the US government.

Hayden’s Note:

I highly recommend you read this entire article.  This isn’t your typical “Buy gold!”-type article.  Instead, it accurately describes the bigger picture (especially towards the last 1/3 of the post) and that is something you need to understand now, not later.

One of the things that astound us is that few professionals have seen this coming over the past 10-1/2 years, and even those that do believe do not think this is an earth-shaking event. What we are about to experience is an event that only occurs every 300 to 500 years....

FBI Agents & Supervisors Cheat on Terrorism Exams, Hayden’s Note: Big Surprise

Posted on Sep 28, 2010 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations

Source: The Independent

FBI agents and several supervisors cheated in an exam about new rules for terrorism and criminal investigations and for collecting foreign intelligence, according to a US Justice Department report yesterday.

The report found that some FBI employees improperly consulted colleagues while taking the exam, and others used or distributed answer sheets or study guides that provided the answers to the test.

Hayden’s Note:

This is standard practice in law enforcement. This doesn’t suprise me in the slightest. Any “in-service training” or exams that have to be taken, such as this one, are typically administered in 8 or 16 hour blocks and either the trainer will pass around hand-outs with the answers highlighted or will literally tell officers/agents the answers during the course of the lecture. This is so common and normal within LE that I can’t believe it actually made the news. Obviously, I have had an inside scoop, but this seems like such a non-news story. But, I’ve had several emails suggesting this story, so here ya go!

The sad thing is that most officers don’t learn the course material during in-service training to begin with, let alone when they are given the answers....

Organized Rebellion and Police Brutality

Posted on Sep 26, 2010 in Police, Military, & War

Kevin Hayden

The purpose of this article is not to demean, exploit or belittle the fine work that most police officers do each and every day.  I wore a badge for 5 years in a very violent city and understand the physical and mental demands of the job.  I also recognize the lack of appreciation most officers get.

But sadly, many of our public servants – our peace officers – have become incomprehensible machines of random violence and oppression.  Most officers do not even realize how they are being used by their own Departments and cities to become Corporate Revenue Collectors and essentially, the country’s largest and most well-armed street gang. Furthermore, many of our police officers nowadays have combat experience in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere. With that comes PTSD, instability and an exaggerated Alpha-male personality. These men and women have been trained over and over to kill; they have been shot at, blown up and invaded cities in the middle of the desert, day after day. And now we give them a uniform and ask them to patrol our streets?...

Iranian President Discusses Flaws in 9/11 Story, US Delegates Walk Out of UN Assembly

Posted on Sep 24, 2010 in Global & National News

Source: CNN


Delegates from the United States and other nations walked out of the U.N. General Assembly on Thursday as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad delivered a fiery speech that criticized Washington, capitalism and the world body itself.

Though incendiary statements from Ahmadinejad are nothing new, tension in the hall grew as the Iranian leader recounted various conspiracy theories ideas about the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.

“Some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack,” Ahmadinejad told the General Assembly. He followed with the claim that the attacks were aimed at reversing “the declining American economy and its scripts on the Middle East in order to save the Zionist regime. The majority of the American people, as well as most nations and politicians around the world, agree with this view.”

That appeared to be the last straw for many of the diplomats. Representatives from the United States, Britain, Sweden, Australia, Belgium, Uruguay and Spain walked out while Ahmadinejad asserted that U.S. government was involved in the attacks or allowed them to happen as an excuse to go to war in Afghanistan and Iraq....

GOP Blocks Repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’

Posted on Sep 21, 2010 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Political Issues

Source:  LA Times

A Republican-led filibuster on Tuesday blocked efforts to repeal the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on gays in the military, shelving an Obama administration priority at least until after the November election.

Hayden’s Note:

Ugh.  Don’t get me started.

These politicians use the military budget bill to advance political agendas on both sides of the aisle.

I have an idea… bills and amendments can only be voted on or debated by themselves.  They can no longer be “attached” to any other piece of legislation, thereby forcing a vote on the merits of the actual bill in question.  But ohh, hell no.  That would make too much sense.  That would expose some members of the Congress’ actual opinions and agendas.  By attaching bills to other bills, we are doing nothing but creating stagnation and ineffectiveness.

Now, regarding the topic of this article – the DATA policy; repeal it and stop being so homophobic.  People who are gay are still human, the same as you.  John McCain cites “combat effectiveness” in banning gays, but in my opinion – and while I’ve never served in the military, I have been in some pretty serious situations as a police officer – no one is worrying that their partner or combat buddy is checking out their rearend during a firefight. ...

FBI Give Man Fake Bomb, He Plants it, They Arrest Him – Hayden’s Note Attached

Posted on Sep 20, 2010 in Global & National News

Source: AP

A man arrested for allegedly placing a backpack he thought contained an explosive near the Chicago’s Wrigley Field also talked about poisoning Lake Michigan, bombing a landmark skyscraper and assassinating Mayor Richard Daley, according to a federal complaint filed Monday.

Sami Samir Hassoun, 22, a Lebanese citizen living in Chicago, was charged with one count each of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction and attempted use of an explosive device.

Hayden’s Note:

Later in this report, the FBI and Chicago Police admit that this man was below average intelligence but still wanted to start an “organization” to transform Chicago’s politics.  I’m sorry, but there are thousands of nutjobs like this across America.  Are they terrorists?  No.  Not of their own free will.  They might light a bag of dog poo on fire and throw it at the Mayor’s house, but these types are everywhere.

The only difference with this one was the FBI stepped in, as usual, and supplied the man with what he thought was a bomb.  They then led him to believe he could make lots of money if he would plant the bomb for them. ...

City Bills FL Pastor $180k for Security Amid Planned Quran Burning

Posted on Sep 17, 2010 in Global & National News

The city of Gainesville, Florida, plans to send a bill estimated at more than $180,000 to Pastor Terry Jones for security costs surrounding his controversial threat to burn Qurans on the anniversary of the September, 11, 2001, attacks, a police spokeswoman said Friday.

Police agencies spent more than a month working on security plans to ensure the community surrounding Jones’ Dove World Outreach Center — the planned site of the burning — was safe, according to Gainesville police spokeswoman Cpl. Tscharna Senn.

Jones also told authorities he received numerous death threats because of the planned protest, which he called off amid increasing pressure from world leaders.

The Gainesville Police Department said it spent more than $100,000 while the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office spent an estimated $80,000 during the weekend of the planned demonstration.

“We have 286 sworn officers and almost everyone was working either at the Dove Center or at other soft targets,” Senn said. “Unless you were sick or injured you were working” the day the burning was to take place.

Officers secured malls in the region, the University of Florida’s football stadium and areas around the church in the days leading up to the planned event....

Laws of Physics Vary Throughout the Universe, New Study Suggests – Hayden’s Note Attached

Posted on Sep 16, 2010 in - Physics & the Universe

Source: Science Daily

A team of astrophysicists based in Australia and England has uncovered evidence that the laws of physics are different in different parts of the universe.

Hayden’s Note:

Well….duh!  I certainly don’t have a PhD or a team of research scientists behind me, but ever since I was a young child, I’ve assumed that other parts of the universe behave differently than our local scene.  That’s why I never understood the classic imagery of aliens or extra-terrestial beings as being so human-like.  Why would you think that intelligent – or even simple organisms – in a distant galaxy thrive the same way we do?  Why would another planet, hundreds of light years away, need oxygen or nitrogen?  Why would it’s inhabitants need water or hydrogen? 

Our classical scientists have always thought that since we humans need these things to sustain life – and because they have not seen otherwise – that all living creatures must function in this manner.  But what if in a distant galaxy, oxygen is poisonous to it’s inhabitants?  What if they absorb uranium and an aluminum alloy in order to function and live, which is abundant on that planet? ...

10 Practical Steps That You Can Take To Insulate Yourself From The Coming Economic Collapse

Posted on Aug 26, 2010 in Economic News, Emergency Preparedness & Survival

Source: The Economic Collapse

Most Americans are still operating under the delusion that this “recession” will end and that the “good times” will return soon, but a growing minority of Americans are starting to realize that things are fundamentally changing and that they better start preparing for what is ahead. These “preppers” come from all over the political spectrum and from every age group.  More than at any other time in modern history, the American people lack faith in the U.S. economic system.  In dozens of previous columns, I have detailed the horrific economic problems that we are now facing in excruciating detail.  Many readers have started to complain that all I do is “scare” people and that I don’t provide any practical solutions.  Well, not everyone can move to Montana and start a llama farm, but hopefully this article will give people some practical steps that they can take to insulate themselves (at least to an extent) from the coming economic collapse.

But before I get into what people need to do, let’s take a minute to understand just how bad things are getting out there. ...

More Mosque Insanity: Filmmaker Stabs Muslim Cabbie, with Editorial by Hayden

Posted on Aug 25, 2010 in Global & National News

Source: USA Today

A Manhattan cabbie who was stabbed Tuesday night by a Putnam County man questioned Wednesday whether the attack stemmed from the contentious debate over creating a mosque near ground zero. Ahmed H. Sharif, 43, of Queens, was stabbed several times by Michael Enright, 21, of Southeast, N.Y., after Enright had asked Sharif if he was Muslim and the cabbie responded that he was, a police spokesman said.

Hayden’s Note:

This ‘Ground Zero Mosque’ insanity is a very simple psy-op plan put on by the mass media.  It’s called Divide & Conquer.  And it’s working. 

There are respect issues at play, along with legal, religious, Constitutional and emotional issues.  Not to mention property rights at the top of that list.  This is a recipe for everyone to get involved and take a side.  Choose your team wisely: Blue vs. Red – Liberal vs. Conservative – Christian vs. Muslim – etc, etc.

This is simply insanity.  Stay the course and know the Truth.  It is not Left vs. Right.  It is the State vs. You.

When officers responded to the scene around 6:15 p.m....
