The Kremlin does not have to worry, because traitors like Ron Paul want to help them disband NATO. Does the word treason sound familiar? We are infested with traitors and useful idiots for the enemy.......
Page 262: “One of the objectives [of Euro-Communism] was to prepare the ground, in coordination with Bloc policy in general, for an eventual ‘liberalization’ in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe and a major drive to promote the dissolution of NATO and the Warsaw Pact and the withdrawal of the American military presence from a neutral, socialist Europe.”
Page 335: “A coalition government in Poland would in fact be totalitarianism under a new, deceptive and more dangerous guise. Accepted as the spontaneous emergence of a new form of multi-party, semi-democratic regime, it would serve to undermine resistance to Communism inside and outside the Communist Bloc. The need for massive defense expenditure would increasingly be questioned in the West. New possibilities would arise for splitting Western Europe away from the United States, of neutralizing Germany, and destroying NATO.”
The prospect of a war in the Caucasus is looming closer. Last week four Russian military jets crossed into Georgian airspace - flying over the breakaway republic of South Ossetia. This prompted a furious reaction from Georgian officials. They have vowed to shoot down the next Russian warplane.
Tick tock, tick tock...BOOM
GENEVA — A U.S. decision to bend policy and sit down with Iran at nuclear talks fizzled Saturday, with Iran stonewalling Washington and five other world powers on their call to freeze uranium enrichment.
In response, the six gave Iran two weeks to respond to their demand, setting the stage for a new round of U.N. sanctions.
Iran's refusal to consider suspending enrichment was an indirect slap at the United States, which had sent Undersecretary of State William Burns to the talks in hopes the first-time American presence would encourage Tehran into making concessions.
Officials and diplomats refused to characterize the timeframe as an ultimatum, but it appeared clear that Iran now has a de-facto deadline to show flexibility.
More proof that this guy Ron Paul is really a communist plant and his followers are a bunch of unstable anarchist traitors...END OF STORY.
How do I know this? The Russians want NATO disbanded and here is Ron Paul trying to prevent NATO expansion, so Russia can be protected.
This is TREASON....
Italian President Giorgio Napolitano on Wednesday praised Russian proposals for new broad security framework for Europe, saying he would promote the idea within the European Union, in the warmest response so far from a Western politician to the Kremlin's overtures.
Russia's cooperation within the Group of Eight major economies and investment opportunities were also high on the agenda as Napolitano met with President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin for talks Wednesday.
"I personally listened to the ideas regarding a new architecture for Euro-Atlantic security put forward by the president with great interest," Napolitano told reporters after the talks. "Italy's position will be one of special attention to this issue and openess to deeper discussions of the proposal within the European Union."

Whoopi Goldberg & Sherri Shepherd showed their ignorance and insecurity by basically saying to white people that we can say this word anytime we like, but you will lose your job if you even mention it.
I really wanted to write more about this, but this is just so lame. I got to my point in just a few sentences. If blacks don't want the word used, then they should not use it either if we are all supposed to be EQUAL in this society.
Lead by EXAMPLE Whoopi
Obama said $12 a gallon of gas is coming and he seems happy about it and he offers no relief in site. He is against drilling for oil, building nuclear power plants and his liberal friends want to add taxes on top of the already high gas prices, so you learn how to conserve. This is freedom? These taxes are another way are forcing you into a communist state where you have no opportunity to live in freedom or happiness. You will be a slave to the government, gas prices, high food prices and high TAXES.
There is NO SHORTAGE IN OIL, so if you have to decide whether to fill your gas tank or you refrigerator it is because there is a global initiative to force nations into a Socialist world government.
Nikita Kruschev once told an American politician that "his grandchildren would live under communism" and he was not kidding, because it is here. He also said that "we will spoon feed your people socialism, until you are all communists without a shot being fired and you won't even know it".
Combine these words with the 9/11 attacks and if that has not woken you up yet, the sound of the gate closing you in the concentration camp will...
I guess the conspiracy loons will say that this was Bush trying to convince people that he was not involved in 9/11. Wow, he is clever for someone that is reportedly so stupid...

Radical Marxism and radical Islam have joined forces, but the socialist media is only focusing on Islam, because they want RELIGION to be blamed instead of the leftist ideology. The media does not want the average American idiot to know that we are on the cusp of a Marxist revolution in this country and around the world.
On July 2nd, Obama mentioned that he wants to create a 'National civilian police force'. What is this Nazi Germany?
This video is excellent....ENJOY and spread this around
More abortions are recorded in Russia than live births. The situation has improved since Soviet times, when women terminated seven pregnancies on average during their lifetimes. But abortion remains the country's main method of birth control.

The last time they announced this a cyclone hit Myanmar and the morons gave themself an earthquake....
The FSB was caught red handed trying to blow up an apartment building in Moscow, so the Chechen rebels could be blamed. This would than be used as a reason to invade Chechnya.
In 1999, a car bomb was detonated in front of an apartment building in the city of Buynaksk that served as military housing for Russian soldiers, killing more than sixty residents.
I will add the clip later on today of Michael Savage and his brilliant take on the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac debacle. Last night, Savage unveiled the Clinton cronies that are connected to these two financial centers that the MSM will never report and that is why I am posting this.
The average person does not care about this, but I am posting it to show that the LEFT are the real hypocrites, because these scream about big business and corruption, yet they seem to be lurking around when ever something goes SOUTH.
I also want to add that Michael Savage did not mention any wrong doing by the thugs mentioned in this article.
Bush would rather play the game of deception, make nice in public, but surround the Russians with missiles and keep building up NATO due to their ties with Islamic terrorism. The American media never mentions this.
I also think that John Bolton would make a great Sec of State under McCain....

There are two misconceptions held by many Americans. The first is that communism ceased to be a threat when the Soviet Union imploded. The second is that the New Left of the Sixties collapsed and disappeared as well. "The Sixties are dead," wrote columnist George Will ("Slamming the Doors," Newsweek, Mar. 25, 1991)
Because the New Left lacked cohesion it fell apart as a political movement. However, its revolutionaries reorganized themselves into a multitude of single issue groups. Thus we now have for example, radical feminists, black extremists, anti-war ‘peace' activists, animal rights groups, radical environmentalists, and ‘gay' rights groups. All of these groups pursue their piece of the radical agenda through a complex network of organizations such as the Gay Straight Lesbian Educators Network (GSLEN), the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), People for the American Way, United for Peace and Justice, Planned Parenthood, Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), and Code Pink for Peace.
Both communism and the New Left are alive and thriving here in America. They favor code words: tolerance, social justice, economic justice, peace, reproductive rights, sex education and safe sex, safe schools, inclusion, diversity, and sensitivity. All together, this is Cultural Marxism disguised as multiculturalism.
Birth of Multiculturalism
In anticipation of the revolutionary storm that would baptize the world in an inferno of red terror, leading to its rebirth as the promised land of social justice and proletarian equality-Frederich Engels wrote,
"All the...large and small nationalities are destined to perish...in the revolutionary world storm... (A general war will) wipe out all...nations, down to their very names. The next world war will result in the disappearance from the face of the earth not only reactionary classes...but...reactionary peoples." ("The Magyar Struggle," Neue Rheinische Zeitung, Jan. 13, 1849)
By the end of WWI, socialists realized that something was amiss, for the world's proletariat had not heeded Marx's call to rise up in opposition to evil capitalism and to embrace communism instead. They wondered what had gone wrong.
Separately, two Marxist theorists-Antonio Gramsci of Italy and Georg Lukacs of Hungary-concluded that the Christianized West was the obstacle standing in the way of a communist new world order. The West would have to be conquered first.
Gramsci posited that because Christianity had been dominant in the West for over 2000 years, not only was it fused with Western civilization, but it had corrupted the workers class. The West would have to be de-Christianized, said Gramsci, by means of a "long march through the culture." Additionally, a new proletariat must be created. In his "Prison Notebooks," he suggested that the new proletariat be comprised of many criminals, women, and racial minorities.
The new battleground, reasoned Gramsci, must become the culture, starting with the traditional family and completely engulfing churches, schools, media, entertainment, civic organizations, literature, science, and history. All of these things must be radically transformed and the social and cultural order gradually turned upside-down with the new proletariat placed in power at the top.
In 1919, Georg Lukacs became Deputy Commissar for Culture in the short-lived Bolshevik Bela Kun regime in Hungary. He immediately set plans in motion to de-Christianize Hungary. Reasoning that if Christian sexual ethics could be undermined among children, then both the hated patriarchal family and the Church would be dealt a crippling blow. Lukacs launched a radical sex education program in the schools. Sex lectures were organized and literature handed out which graphically instructed youth in free love (promiscuity) and sexual intercourse while simultaneously encouraging them to deride and reject Christian moral ethics, monogamy, and parental and church authority. All of this was accompanied by a reign of cultural terror perpetrated against parents, priests, and dissenters.
Hungary's youth, having been fed a steady diet of values-neutral (atheism) and radical sex education while simultaneously encouraged to rebel against all authority, easily turned into delinquents ranging from bullies and petty thieves to sex predators, murderers, and sociopaths.
Gramsci's prescription and Lukacs' plans were the precursor to what Cultural Marxism in the guise of SIECUS, GSLEN, and the ACLU--acting as judicially-powered enforcers--later brought into American schools.
Building a base
In 1923, the Frankfurt School-a Marxist think-tank-was founded in Weimar Germany. Among its founders were Georg Lukacs, Herbert Marcuse, and Theodor Adorno. The school was a multidisciplinary effort which included sociologists, sexologists, and psychologists.
The primary goal of the Frankfurt School was to translate Marxism from economic terms into cultural terms. It would provide the ideas on which to base a new political theory of revoltuion based on culture, harnessing new oppressed groups for the faithless proletariat. Smashing religion, morals, It would also build a constituency among academics, who could build careers studying and writing about the new oppression.
Toward this end, Marcuse-who favored polymorphous perversion-expanded the ranks of Gramsci's new proletariat by including homosexuals, lesbians, and transsexuals. Into this was spliced Lukacs radical sex education and cultural terrorism tactics. Gramsci's ‘long march' was added to the mix, and then all of this was wedded to Freudian psychoanalysis and psychological conditioning techniques. The end product was Cultural Marxism, now known in the West as multiculturalism.
Additional intellectual firepower was required: a theory to pathologize what was to be destroyed. In 1950, the Frankfurt School augmented Cultural Marxism with Theodor Adorno's idea of the ‘authoritarian personality.' This concept is premised on the notion that Christianity, capitalism, and the traditional family create a character prone to racism and fascism. Thus, anyone who upholds America's traditional moral values and institutions is both racist and fascist. Children raised by traditional values parents, we are told to believe, will almost certainly become racists and fascists. By extension, if fascism and racism are endemic to America's traditional culture, then everyone raised in the traditions of God, family, patriotism, gun ownership, or free markets is in need of psychological help.
The pernicious influence of Adorno's ‘authoritarian personality' idea can be clearly seen in some of the research that gets public money.
"In Aug., 2003, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced the results of their $1.2 million tax-payer funded study. It stated, essentially, that traditionalists are mentally disturbed. Scholars from the Universities of Maryland, California at Berkeley, and Stanford had determined that social conservatives...suffer from ‘mental rigidity,' ‘dogmatism,' and ‘uncertainty avoidance,' together with associated indicators for mental illness." http://www.edwatch.org/ ‘Social and Emotional Learning" Jan. 26, 2005)
The Orwellian cast of the pathologies named shows how far Gramsci's long march has led us.
A corresponding and diabolically crafted idea is political correctness. The strong suggestion here is that in order for one not to be thought of as racist or fascist, then one must not only be nonjudgmental but must also embrace the ‘new' moral absolutes: diversity, choice, sensitivity, sexual orientation, and tolerance. Political correctness is a Machiavellian psychological ‘command and control' device. Its purpose is the imposition of uniformity in thought, speech, and behavior.
Critical theory is yet another psychological ‘command and control' device. As stated by Daniel J. Flynn,
"Critical Theory, as its name implies, criticizes. What deconstruction does to literature, Critical Theory does to societies." (Intellectual Morons, p 15-16)
Critical Theory is an ongoing and brutal assault via vicious criticism relentlessly leveled against Christians, Christmas, the Boy Scouts, Ten Commandments, our military, and all other aspects of traditional American culture and society.
Both political correctness and Critical Theory are in essence, psychological bullying. They are the psycho-political battering rams by which Frankfurt School disciples such as the ACLU are forcing Americans to submit to and to obey the will and the way of the Left. These devious devices are but psychological versions of Georg Lukacs and Laventi Beria's ‘cultural terrorism' tactics. In the words of Beria,
"Obedience is the result of force...Force is the antithesis of humanizing actions. It is so synonymous in the human mind with savageness, lawlessness, brutality, and barbarism, that it is only necessary to display an inhuman attitude toward people to be granted by those people the possessions of force." (The Russian Manual on Psychopolitics: Obedience, by Laventi Beria, head of Soviet Secret Police and Stalin's right-hand man)
Double-thinking ‘fence-sitters', otherwise known as moderates, centrists, and RINOs bear the imprint of these psychological ‘obedience' techniques. These people-in some cases literally afraid of incurring the wrath of name-calling obedience trainers--- have opted to straddle the fence lest they be found guilty of possessing an opinion, one way or another. At the merest hint of displeasure from the obedience-trainers, up goes the yellow flag of surrender upon which it is boldly written:
"I believe in nothing and am tolerant of everything!"
The linchpin of Cultural Marxism is cultural determinism, the parent of identity politics and group solidarity. In its turn, cultural determinism was birthed by the Darwinian idea that man is but a soulless animal and therefore his identity is determined by for example, his skin color or his sexual and/or erotic preferences. This proposition rejects the concepts of the human spirit, individuality, free will, and morally informed conscience (paired with personal accountability and responsibility) because it emphatically denies the existence of the God of the Bible.
Consequently, and by extension, it also rejects the first principles of our liberty enumerated in the Declaration of Independence. These are our "unalienable rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Cultural Marxism must reject these because these principles of liberty "are endowed by our Creator," who made man in His image.
Cultural determinism, states David Horowitz, is
"identity politics-the politics of radical feminism, queer revolution, and Afro-centrism-which is the basis of academic multiculturalism...a form of intellectual fascism and, insofar as it has any politics, of political fascism as well." (Mussolini and Neo-Fascist Tribalism: Up from Multiculturalism, by David Horowitz, Jan. 1998)
It is said that courage is the first of the virtues because without it fear will paralyze man, thus keeping him from acting upon his moral convictions and speaking truth. Thus bringing about a general state of paralyzing fear, apathy, and submission-the chains of tyranny-is the purpose behind psychopolitical cultural terrorism, for the communist Left's revolutionary agenda must, at all costs, be clothed in darkness.
The antidote is courage and the light of truth. If we are to win this cultural war and reclaim and rebuild America so our children and their children's children can live in a ‘Shining City on the Hill' where liberty, families, opportunity, free markets, and decency flourish, we must muster the courage to fearlessly expose the communist Left's revolutionary agenda to the Light of Truth.
Truth and the courage to speak it will set us free.
With all the reporters covering the major presidential candidates, it amazes me no one ever seems to ask the right questions.
For several days now, WND has been hounding Barack Obama's campaign about a statement he made July 2 in Colorado Springs – a statement that blew my mind, one that has had me scratching my head ever since.
In talking about his plans to double the size of the Peace Corps and nearly quadruple the size of AmeriCorps and the size of the nation's military services, he made this rather shocking (and chilling) pledge: "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."

The implications of successful engineering of the longitudinal waves are enormous, and will change the world as we know it, one way or another. Among other things, these discoveries mean that:
1. The solutions to the energy crisis and the "oil problem" are in hand. These oil wars are unnecessary. There is endless energy available freely from the domain of time.
2. Unbelievably powerful weapons are not only possible, but are already operating in several nations. The many powers of these weapons are unprecedented and mind-boggling.
3. The cure of diseases such as cancer and AIDS, in fact nearly any disease, has become possible within a few years of sufficient funding. Everyone can be made healthy and stay healthy.
4. Mind control on a mass scale has now become possible, and the machines to do it are already in place in certain nations. It has become possible to mentally enslave whole populations with the twist of a few dials.
Russian directed weapons ....THE FUTURE IS HERE FOLKS....
Keep walking folks, there is nothing to see here. Russia is not linked to Isamic terror? Go back to sleep.......
TEL AVIV — Hamas has been training on a range of new Russian-origin weapons meant to incur heavy civilian casualties in any war with Israel.
Is this cover offensive? I think it is refreshingly HONEST....
They (the New Yorker) is trying to pin this on right wing conservatives.
1. Obama sympathizes with the Islamic and Palestinian movement, his step brother and cousin are radical Muslims in Kenya and they are spreading Sharia like a virus. Obama was also listed as a Muslim on his registration card in an Indonesian school AND he attended Muslim services with his MUSLIM FATHER.
2. Michelle Obama has stated her radical hate speech against America, Capitalism and corporations that employ MILLIONS of Americans (except for her husbands dysfunctional constituents).
3. Obama has associates with several radical left wing professors (one was an admitted terrorist from the Weather Underground) and he has even sat on boards with them (the Woods Foundation) that helped fund a known terror group.
Excuse my language, but you must think we are fucking fools to not see what is really going on here.

NOTICE - YOU NEVER HEARD THIS IN THE MEDIA -> This is very interesting and it explains what the conspiracy nuts keep saying. They claim that on 9/11/01, VP Cheney had taken control of all NORAD operations in the USA. The US Government knew something was coming and they obviously knew that Russia might have something to do with it too. I guess they were expecting a possible attack by the Russians was coming soon after the 9/11 attacks happened ...
There were reports that day that said the Air Force was doing exercises to prevent a Russian attack via fighter jets. The Russian fighter jets acted as a distraction, so the hijacked planes could hit their targets.....
THE PLOT THICKENS.
On September 4 or 5, 2001 Russian fighter jets threatened to shoot down a US Navy P-3 surveillance plane in the North Pacific Ocean. The Washington Times reports:
Russian warplanes threatened patrolling U.S. Navy P-3 aircraft over the Pacific Ocean last week as the American planes monitored a military exercise in the region, The Washington Times has learned. At one point during the aerial harassment, a MiG-31 interceptor pilot flew his jet within 50 feet of a P-3 maritime patrol and reconnaissance plane. The incident was similar to a Chinese aerial intercept that resulted in a collision earlier this year. One alarming sign of the Russian intercept was a radio message sent by one MiG-31 pilot to his base stating his fire-control radar had "locked on" to the U.S. surveillance plane, U.S. intelligence officials said. A radar "lock" is a pilot's final step before firing a guided missile. "It was a threatening action," said one official.
Five days later, during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks against the USA, the neo-Soviet state was "coincidentally" holding pre-announced strategic bomber exercises over the Arctic, North Pacific, and North Atlantic Oceans. The Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) reports that "the main task was reportedly to penetrate air defense of NATO and North America (NORAD)."
Maneuvers to simulate defense against a large-scale airspace attack began on September 10. According to Chief of the Air Force Anatoli Kornukov, they were intended to cover the whole Arctic, as well as northern parts of the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans, including, specifically, the vicinity of Norway, Iceland, the United States, Canada, and Great Britain. The main task was reportedly to penetrate air defense of NATO and North America (NORAD). As part of the exercise, long-range bombers were moved to auxiliary bases in Anadyr, Tiksi, and Vorkuta. A new element of these maneuvers was, according to newspaper reports, training for the use of long-range ALCMs outside the reach of NORAD (since Russia has had long-range nuclear ALCMs since the 1980s, apparently these reports meant conventional ALCMs, which began to appear in Russian Armed Forces only in the late 1990s). The only real launches planned in these regions involved short-range missiles launched from Tu-22M3 over Kamchatka Peninsula in a simulated attack against an aircraft carrier group.
Immediately following the attacks, the White House contacted the Kremlin and insisted that the Russians cancel their air force's "exercises." The Washington Post reports: "U.S. officials also sent a message to the Russians, who were planning a military exercise not far from Alaska, urging them to rethink their plans." At the link above NTI relates a similar post-attack scenario:
The plan was abruptly changed immediately after news of terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, DC on September 11, 2001 reached Moscow. To avoid possible complications and misperceptions, the [Russian] Air Force terminated all “practical activities” planned for the ongoing maneuvers following a request from the United States. This included a termination of flights not only toward U.S. territory, but also “around the corner” toward Norway and Iceland. Launches of short-range ALCMs from five Tu-22M3 bombers (three belonging to the Naval Air Command and two from the Air Force) over Kamchatka against seaborne targets were still conducted, but only within Russian territorial waters. Also, both heavy and medium bombers practiced missile launches at an internal Russian test range near the Caspian sea.
On Monday, September 17, 2007 state-run Novosti has announced that Russian strategic bombers which, in any case, have resumed permanent patrols per President Vladimir Putin's August 17 announcement, will again be conducting maneuvers between the 18th and 21st of this month.
Do you see how the little liberal fascists like to spin propaganda? They are trying to depict ALL RELIGIONS as extreme as Islam is. The Atheist scum that produced this show should be beheaded, now that I would like to see.....
The show, watched 6.8million, also sparked new claims of anti-Christian bias in BBC programmes.
One viewer wrote on the corporation's website: 'If it had been another religion portrayed in that manner, the PC police would have been up in arms about the nastiness and their rights not to have their religion ridiculed - as it was Christians, it was apparently OK.'
McCain, who once sang in jest about bombing Iran, on Tuesday reacted to a report of rising U.S. cigarette exports to the Islamic Republic by saying it may be "a way of killing 'em."
Is this war about oil? Sure, we need stability in the Middle East and we CAN NOT allow Russian control and dominance over the region. The USA and the World runs on oil, no matter what these mentally ill liberals say. Yes, we are still fighting the Russians, this has been going on since WWII and it will not end until WMD's are flying around like birds in the sky. It is inevitable and it is what THEY WANT.
How come the average Joe on the street does not know this? Well, he is busy working his ass off or drinking beer or watching porn. The women care even less, as long as they have their pointy shoes and their nails done, life is good. Lets see how good it is when they are made a slave by Russian and Chinese soldiers. Oh, you are laughing? You won't be laughing much longer. Do you think they will not rape and murder you, because you are a 'good liberal'? You will learn, just like the French appeasers learned when they collaborated with the Nazi's.
This is for the Bush bashers:
GW knew that the Russians were making a move on the USA, but he did not know how bad and when. Before 9/11 he got Poland, the Czech Rep. and Hungary to join NATO and he had his sites on the Ukraine. Putin became furious and he gave the thumbs up to the islamo-nazi's to attack on 9/11.
Putin made sure the evidence pointed towards the U.S. Ally, Saudi Arabia for a reason and that was to confuse the American people who the enemy is. Of course we all know about the radical elements in Saudi Arabia that are 100% behind this Jihad against the USA and Israel, BUT the Saudi Family is in survival mode right now. They feared the Iranians and Saddam for a reason, they are lunatics and a threat to their sovereignty.
Due to Russia's ties to Islamic terror, Bush took Afghanistan and Iraq. Now Iran is surrounded and US troops are on the border of Syria too. The defensive missile system deals have been signed with Poland and the Czech Republic and this has the Russian bear feeling cornered. This is why the world socialists and the American libs are so scared, they do not want CAPITALISM (Bush) to win.
Three former Soviet bloc countries — the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland — joined NATO in 1999, and the 10 central and eastern European countries that are seeking admission next year include former Soviet allies like Bulgaria and Romania. The 10 countries also include the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, once Soviet republics. Russia has long been opposed to having those neighboring nations absorbed into the Atlantic Alliance.
The Bear is about to lash out again....BE READY, because this one will make 9/11 seem like a fireworks show at the beach.

LONDON -- British Foreign Secretary David Miliband has said Russia's veto of a United Nations Security Council resolution to impose sanctions on Zimbabwe was "incomprehensible."
"It'll appear incomprehensible to the people of Zimbabwe that Russia, which committed itself at the G8 to take further steps including introducing financial and other sanctions, should stand in the way of Security Council action."
