Will This Prisoner Stop Obama?

Keith Judd, the convict who ran for President, became somewhat of a celebrity after almost beating Obama in the 2012 West Virginia Democratic Primary. What wasn’t reported, however, was that after Obama won the presidential election, Judd filed a series of lawsuits detailing how Obama was illegally placed on the 2012 presidential ballot. One lawsuit, filed on May 9, 2013, is scheduled to be heard before a federal court in the next few months.

And rumor has it that the Obama regime is extremely worried.

However, Keith Judd—who has strangely been in prison since 1999 for a minor threat made against a local New Mexico college—may never make it out of prison alive.

Karen Hudes: Either We Take Back Our Gold, Our Legality, or We’ll Have WWIII

Can we pull the world out of this economic calamity? Former World Bank Attorney Karen Hudes says, “It may be that we don’t, in which case, we end up in what happened just before we went into the dark ages, when gold went into hiding . . . . We can bring this gold that belongs to humanity out of its cloak of secrecy and out of hiding or we can go back into the dark ages. And we can have pestilence and starvation. . . . Civilization breaks down. We cannot pay for our international trade. Either we take back our gold, our legality, and we tell this group that thinks it’s above the law that it is not above the law, or we can kiss ourselves goodbye. Humanity will not continue, we will have World War III. Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with former World Bank Attorney Karen Hudes.

U.S. Currency Weak and About to Crash—Karen Hudes

Scary 1929 market chart gains traction

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (MarketWatch) — There are eerie parallels between the stock market’s recent behavior and how it behaved right before the 1929 crash.

That at least is the conclusion reached by a frightening chart that has been making the rounds on Wall Street. The chart superimposes the market’s recent performance on top of a plot of its gyrations in 1928 and 1929.

The picture isn’t pretty. And it’s not as easy as you might think to wriggle out from underneath the bearish significance of this chart.

Amazing, innit?

Lorde’s Suppressed Grammy Award acceptance speech (Full Transcript) 26 January 2014

Thank you soo much everyone for making this song explode because this world is mental. (Laughter). Planet Earth is run by psychopaths that hide behind slick marketing, ‘freedom’ propaganda and ‘economic growth’ rhetoric,[1] while they construct a global system of corporatized totalitarianism.

As American journalist Chris Hedges has identified, a corporate totalitarian core thrives inside a fictitious democratic shell.[2] This core yields an ‘inverted’ totalitarian state that few recognize because it does not look like the Orwellian world of Nineteen Eighty-four.[3]

This corporate totalitarian core is spreading outward from America. Planet Earth is being rapidly militarized by the world’s major and significant states, including their police forces.[4] Meanwhile, state surveillance is becoming universal[5] and torture is outsourced to gulags.[6]

Appeals court says Gitmo detainees can challenge force-feeding

Attorneys for three foreign nationals being held by the United States at the Guantanamo Bay detention center in Cuba are claiming a partial victory following a federal appeals court ruling announced Tuesday morning in Washington, DC.

Earlier complaints made by the detainees in question regarding the conditions of their confinement at Gitmo should have been heard in district court, an appellate panel agreed in a 2-1 vote, opening the door for those inmates’ attorneys to re-challenge their clients’ ongoing detainment and the force-feeding practices they’ve been subjected to endure while protesting their lengthy incarceration by refusing to eat unless and until they are released.

Euro MPs drop anti-NSA amendment offering Snowden asylum protection

The European Parliament has been thrown into disarray over an amendment urging it to ensure the safety of Edward Snowden. The ex-NSA contractor’s name was dropped from the draft, which now merely calls for the protection of whistleblowers in general.

The parliament’s Civil Liberties Committee convened Wednesday to start voting on over 500 amendments to a report recounting results of the first-ever inquiry into the NSA and GCHQ scandal. The 60-page document condemns the scale and the impact of mass surveillance exposed by Snowden, who now lives in Russia.

The Greens, a small faction in the European Parliament, along with a minority of liberals and leftist MPs, had submitted an amendment to ensure Snowden’s safety should he emerge from hiding. The whistleblower has been considered a witness in the inquiry.
