U.S. State Employee Pension & Retirement Funds Reportedly Have $1 Trillion Shortfall

I believe George Washington is credited with saying that the last official act of any government is to loot the treasury. As it appears this country is headed to even more dark times, it appears the State pension and retirement funds have a $1,000,000,000,000 ($1 trillion) shortfall and States are worried how this shortfall will be covered. Will the people get upset once they realize that their retirement and pension funds have been looted?

U.S. states face a total shortfall of at least $1 trillion in their funds for employees' pensions and retirement benefits, and their financial problems are quickly mounting, according to a report released by the Pew Center on the States on Thursday.

Illinois is in the worst shape, with only 54 percent of its pension obligations funded, according to the report, which looked at fiscal year 2008.

Can Thorium Nuclear Reactors End The Global Energy Wars?

When I start thinking I'm really smart, I learn about something new that makes me realize just how much I do not know. I pride myself on staying up on science, but I guess I haven't been doing a good job, because I was clueless about the energy possibilities with thorium nuclear (or "nookular" if you're GWB or me) reactors. I am going to further research the science, but it appears that these thorium reactors can be used to eliminate most nuclear waste while creating a much lesser nuclear waste footprint.

Let's review some of the key benefits of thorium. It's abundant (because we've never used any of it); it doesn't require the costly and time-intensive refining process important for uranium, and the waste it produces becomes inert in one hundred years as opposed to hundreds of thousands of years. It's nearly impossible for terrorists to manipulate for weapons production. There's more: the annual fuel cost for a one gigawatt thorium reactor is approximately six hundred times lower than that of a uranium reactor, which requires 250 times more of the raw element.

This article further says that this country did not pursue thorium power, because it did not have an associated military use.

Locked in a struggle with a nuclear- armed Soviet Union, the US government in the ’60s chose to build uranium-fueled reactors — in part because they produce plutonium that can be refined into weapons-grade material.

India is moving forward and even China has plans to build many reactors for its energy needs. The U.S. is late to this energy game, but appears to be arriving as a bill has been introduced in the Senate by Orrin Hatch and Harry Reid. This country needs to proceed if the science is true, because a "clean" nuclear energy would end most of the world's energy wars and usher in a new era in history.

Arizona House Measure Exempts State-Made Guns from Government Regulation

Like Montana, Tennessee and Utah before it, Arizona's House has passed a bill exempting firearms made in Arizona from any registration. The bill was first introduced by Bullhead City's Nancy McLain.

The state House voted Thursday to let Arizonans buy guns without the government knowing — but only if the weapons are manufactured in this state.

Without debate, lawmakers gave preliminary approval to legislation which would say that Arizona-made firearms and ammunition are subject only to state laws. More to the point, HB 2307 would specifically exempt these items from any federal regulation, including registration.

Austin Texas Suicide Pilot Joseph Andrew Stack = Another Government False Flag Operation???

Remixx World! has to always ask the questions that the mainstream media won't ask for whatever reason, and this story is no different. Upon initial glance, there are already numerous things I have to do some further research on to determine if there is some meat to this theory that there is more than meets the eye.

The picture above is eyewitness Megan Riley and the full video can be found at this
link. In the video, Ms. Riley mentions how there was a Hazmet unit in the immediate vicinity of the plane crash. For further analysis of this video and other occurrences, you can read the Prison Planet forums where a lot of this information may also be found.

Why were there Hazmat units in the area? Coincidence? Also,
Infowars is reporting that the FBI's office in Dallas had advance warning of an attack in Austin. Something is definitely a brewing down in Texas and I doubt that it will be mainstream media's cup of tea. Take a look at the two below pictures. Could this small plane cause this much damage?

Because Mr. Stack used a private airplane, I guess the TSA will now start regulating private airplane use, and then what will the TSA regulate next? Our automobiles and trucks?

I will certainly add more to this post as I am able to verify the information and sources.

1,289 Panvax H1N1 "Swine Flu" Side Effects Reported by Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in 2009 4th Quarter

I noticed that U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has suddenly popped back up on the scene of things, so this blog post is a reminder that the H1N1 "swine flu" is still around and don't be surprised if it makes a return to the news headlines soon as a mutated version. Fewer people got the pig flu vaccine than was predicted, so now there are attempts to liquidate the vast remaining vaccine stocks rotting away in storage coolers worldwide.

When the worldwide media hypes up the H1N1 "swine flu" vaccine again in the near future (especially down under in Australia with Panvax), then remember that there were 1,289 reported side effects from the Panvax vaccine in the 4th quarter of 2009.

More than a thousand suspected side effects to the Panvax swine flu vaccine have been reported in the first three months of its administration.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) revealed that it had received 1,289 reports between the vaccine's release on 30 September and 31 December, with almost a third involving nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea.

FLASHBACK: Sarah Palin Supports New 9/11 Investigation

Did Governor Palin ever respond to this tape? I am quite sure that she will either deny she said this statement or say her words were misconstrued.

National Animal Identification System Abandoned by U.S. Department of Agriculture After $142 Million Spent

I don't have much to say about this story except that I do not believe that this is the end of the National Animal ID system. It is likely just a ploy to get people to focus on other issues thinking that this battle has been won. The government will likely just rename this system and call it something else.

The National Animal Identification System, first proposed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 2004, has been abandoned after costing $142 million to develop.

In turn, the USDA has proposed to develop a new, flexible framework for animal disease traceability in the U.S. and undertake several other actions to further strengthen its disease prevention and response capabilities.

Is Sarah Palin a 9/11 Truther? (Glenn Beck is a F'n Hypocrite)

Puppet Glenn Beck set up Debra Medina last week on his radio show linking her to the 9/11 truth movement. This happened just as Ms. Medina was moving up in the Texas Governor's race. However, Beck has not said anything about the new Republican darling Sarah Palin who said much stronger words than Ms. Medina about the 9/11 conspiracy.

Check out the video below to get Alex Jones' perspective on the matter or read the article below from Infowars.


BREAKING: Sarah Palin 9/11 truther controversy makes hypocrite of Glenn Beck

Sarah Palin 9/11 truther controversy explodes days after Texas Gubernatorial hopeful Debra Medina outcast as ‘pariah candidate’ for 9/11 comments

Aaron Dykes & Alex Jones
February 17, 2010

Days after Debra Medina’s rising bid for Texas Governor was stung by controversy over comments about 9/11 on the Glenn Beck Show, it has emerged that former Vice Presidential candidate and “Tea Party’ darling Sarah Palin has done her one better– stating her support for a new 9/11 investigation just before the 2008 election, and going far beyond Medina’s mild statement.

Yet, it isn’t the audacity to admit there are remaining questions about 9/11 when scientific polls have found that 84% of Americans do not believe the official story and at least six of the 9/11 commissioners think their own report is flawed, or worse. Instead, it is the hypocrisy of Glenn Beck and the media cretins who followed his lead in dismissing and defaming Medina outright for not immediately belittling 9/11 truthers while ignoring similar statements by GOP darling Sarah Palin.


The Statesman reported that Glenn Beck even grilled Medina on whether or not she would ‘disavow’ any advisers known to hold certain beliefs about 9/11. Medina responded. “I’m certainly not into mind control or thought-policing people.”

Furthermore, Medina’s GOP challengers– incumbent Rick Perry and Sen. Hutchison blasted her in the media within mere minutes of her 9/11 comments. Surely, they were fearful of Debra Medina’s sharp rise in the polls, and seized on the opportunity to harm her politically.

Sitting Governor Perry, who was endorsed by Sarah Palin during a recent stump appearance at the Texas capitol, stated that Medina’s comments were an “insult”:

“Today’s comments were an insult to the thousands of Americans who lost loved ones on Sept. 11 and the military men and women who are overseas protecting our country. President Bush worked tirelessly to protect our nation from additional terrorist attacks and anyone who would suggest Sept. 11 is a conspiracy involving the Bush administration should be ashamed.”

Will Gov. Rick Perry also rebuke Sarah Palin, his top endorsement, for her potentially “insulting” statement? It is doubtful, and until he does, arguably hypocritical.

Further, Medina is not the only gubernatorial candidate to question the events of 9/11. Democrat Farouk Shami went quite a bit further than anything Medina had said when he stated:

“People have talked about it. Professors have written books about it. People overseas talk about it. Whenever I go overseas, people ask me these questions about it. Why are we questioned about it? Do they know something we don’t know, the public? But you know, look, we still don’t know who killed JFK– whose behind it, let’s put it that way. Would we ever find the truth about 9/11? That’s a very dangerous subject to get into, you know? So it’s hard to make judgement. I’m not saying yes or no. Because I don’t know the truth.”

Yet no fuss is made about these individuals. Debra Medina is attacked, however, because she truly is a threat to the political establishment. Perry, Hutchison, Beck and others pretend to want limited government, pretend to defend the 2nd Amendment and property rights, but really support new taxes, look the other way at corporate looting and otherwise refuse to stand for true Texas sovereignty and the rights of individuals. When Medina proves that she really will change things and challenge undue Federal powers, she is attacked and cast aside as a pariah.


Glenn Beck Dictates what is 'Truth'Glenn Beck, who has stated that he “hates the 9/11 victims’ families” for asking questions, who has called 9/11 truthers “dangerous anarchists”, who has called Ron Paul and his supporters ‘domestic terrorists’, has gone out of his way to politically assassinate anyone even loosely affiliated with questioning the official government account of September 11. Now that Beck has underhandedly tried to sabotage Debra Medina, will he also call out fellow FOX News personality Sarah Palin for daring to broach the subject that makes him come unglued?

And, if Debra Medina is guilty of association with 9/11 truth, Sarah Palin is by definition more guilty. She has stated support for an all-out new investigation of 9/11 (the valhalla of the 9/11 truth movement) All the more threatening because Beck and Gov. Perry have already branded themselves with Palin- agast, a truther in disguise?.

After all, Glenn Beck went so far as to say that Medina’s comments about 9/11 not only urged him to ‘cross her off the list’ but constitute to make her a “Flat Earther.” Yes, Glenn Beck made an astounding appeal on his Feb. 16th program about the 9/11 truth “takeover” of the Tea Party movement. He referred to Debra Medina as a “flat earther” and implied that she, like once White House Czar Van Jones, is somehow a cryptic-9/11 truther who holds her beliefs in secret while attempting to infiltrate the halls of government.

This, Glenn Beck deduces, in an air reminiscent of McCarthy and HUAC, is why he felt the need to flush out Medina’s true attitudes via a surprise question on Sept. 11 orthodoxy. Since when did TV pundits decide what people are allowed to think, anyway? Beck “The Inquisitor” made an example out of Debra Medina and– in true Orwellian fashion– put his boot down firmly, demanding that those ‘dangerous truthers’ be purged or damned.

A real tea party, 9/11 truth.He then lectures on why the NY Times is linking the Tea Party with “violence.” Why? Because of 9/11 Truthers who have ‘infilitrated’ the Tea Party he pretends to speak for.

Despite what Beck has alleged, the 9/11 Truth movement is committed to non-violence. The only danger posed is in the questions it has raised.

Actually, the Tea Parties of the last decade were first those of 9/11 Truth, then Ron Paul, and only after the election of Barack Obama, hijacked by the Republican Party and FOX News as a vehicle for a party resurgence.

By contrast, Glenn Beck gave Sarah Palin a worshipful welcome to the FOX Network only weeks ago, embarrassingly comparing her to George Washington, reading aloud his diary entry anticipating their interview together, putting her on the “most admired list” and otherwise urging her to be a ‘reluctant’ candidate in 2012. (See below or Jon Stewart’s lambast of the awkward interview)

But do not despair. Debra Medina has not lost her potency in the race for Governor. It is precisely because of her unforeseen quickening in the polls that the establishment media and candidates raced to shut down a viable candidate that stood for true issues. Her campaign dies only if you let it. They are afraid of a true Constitutional office holder; don’t let attack dogs like Beck practice duplicity– writing off Medina for 9/11 and praising Palin in spite of it. Let Glenn Beck know that the thought police will not tell us what to think or how to vote.

DARPA to Create Oil & Jet Fuel from Algae That Will Only Cost $1-2 Per Gallon

DARPA is at it again! This time, the mad scientist wing of the Pentagon has announced that it will be able to create jet fuel from algae and this biofuel will be competitively priced against other fuels. If anyone else was making this claim, then I would doubt it, doubt it. However, DARPA's past track record makes me believe that it will be able to refine the process as claimed.

Darpa's research projects have already extracted oil from algal ponds at a cost of $2 per gallon. It is now on track to begin large-scale refining of that oil into jet fuel, at a cost of less than $3 a gallon, according to Barbara McQuiston, special assistant for energy at Darpa...

"Oil from algae is projected at $2 per gallon, headed towards $1 per gallon."

Iran Drills Its First Oil Well in Caspian Sea

Now that Iran is drilling for oil for the first time in the Caspian Sea, this information will likely be added to Madame Clinton's dossier as she and others in the Obama administration continue beating the war drums.

Energy wars, nothing but energy wars!

The Islamic Republic of Iran has started drilling its first exploratory well in the Caspian Sea to search for oil in the resource-rich body of water.

“The Amir-Kabir semi-submersible drilling rig has started exploration drillings in the Caspian Sea. It will drill the country's first exploratory well at a depth of 1,550 meters under the seabed,” North Drilling Company Managing Director Hedayatollah Khademi told the Mehr News Agency on Saturday.

Council on Foreign Relations Says Al-Qaeda Lacks Ability to Cyberattack United States of America

I have been saying a lot of the same things over the last few years. There is no way that some guys in ski-masks huddling in Afghan ice caves can conduct sophisticated cyberattacks against America's grid and network. If the media says that Al-Qaeda is cyberattacking fools, then it is probably a lie. Even the Council on Foreign Relations agrees and says that you will not see Al-Qaeda conducting major cyberattacks. I don't trust the CFR at all, but remember its own words the next time the media says that Osama bin Laden is planning a major cyberattack against America.

While the United States' critical infrastructure, from the electric grid to the financial sector, is vulnerable to attack through cyberspace, al-Qaeda lacks the capability and motivation to exploit these vulnerabilities. To penetrate, map, and damage the networks that control the industrial base requires a large team of experienced hackers, a lot of time, and advanced infrastructure. Only a handful of groups, mostly nation state actors, possess this level of capability, and al-Qaeda is not one of them.

If anyone is going to be hitting us with a cyberattack, it will probably be conducted by agents with connections to China, Russia, Israel, North Korea or the corporate sector.

Britain Offers Bribe for Teenage Girls to Get HPV Cervical Cancer Vaccine

As more and more people refuse vaccines, the powers-that-be have to create new ways to encourage people to get them. Britain is offering its teenage girls £45 (approximately $71 USD) shopping vouchers to get the HPV vaccine. The vaccine contains adjuvants in certain regions and have caused numerous side effects. Hence, a bribe is needed.

Teenage girls are being rewarded with shopping vouchers for having the cervical cancer jab.

Girls aged 16 to 18 are being given £45 of vouchers if they complete an inoculation course against the HPV virus, the sexually transmitted infection that causes 70 per cent of cervical tumours.

Toxic Aspartame Sweetener Rebranded as AminoSweet

I guess the word is getting out about how bad Aspartame (a/k/a NutraSweet) is. I recall when aspartame was first introduced when I was a kid in the 1980s. I remember trying it and absolutely HATING the stuff. To this day, I can instantly tell when a waiter brings me a diet soda. It is absolutely disgusting and this was even before I knew the side effects and its origins.

Excuse me, but I will pass on ingesting bacteria waste.

Due to this negativity associated with the Aspartame name, this Aspartame name is now being rebranded as AminoSweet. However, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, and Aspartame by any other name would be just as toxic.

Ajinomoto believes that the time is right to remind the industry that aspartame tastes just like sugar, and that it’s made from amino acids – the building blocks of protein that are abundant in our diet.

The name AminoSweet is appealing and memorable. It reflects that AminoSweet comes from the same amino acids that are abundant in the food we eat every day.

Greece Bans Cash Transactions Above 1,500 Euros

Greece is going to be tracking, tracing and databasing all transactions greater than 1,500 euros and that's according to the country's Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou. And if you do not have electronic currency (credit and/or debit cards) then you will not be able to conduct commerce and business. Also if this law is successful in Greece, then you can expect similar laws to be introduced in other jurisdictions.

There are many other financial overhauls and you can read them by clicking this link.

"From 1. Jan. 2011, every transaction above 1,500 euros between natural persons and businesses, or between businesses, will not be considered legal if it is done in cash. Transactions will have to be done through debit or credit cards"

World's First Bipedal Exoskeleton Land Walker from Sakakibara-Kikai for Only $345,000

Like an Imperial AT-AT Walker out of The Empire Strikes Back, you can now purchase your own land walker for $345,000 from Japan.

Japanese machinery and robotics manufacturer Sakakibara-Kikai has released the first genuine bi-pedal exoskeleton – a landmark event and one which is certain to attract a lot of attention for the company...Sakakibara-Kikai’s Land Walker is just a tad shorter than Enryu at 3.4 metres, weighs 1000kg and shuffles along at 1.5kmh. Enryu is a lot faster than Land Walker but uses caterpillar-like tracks rather than legs to perform its chores – the strapping 3.5 metre Enryu will be called upon to rush into burning buildings, lift heavy objects and rescue people.
