For hundreds of thousands of workers losing their jobs during the recession, there's a new twist to their financial pain: Even when they're collecting unemployment benefits, they're paying the bank just to get the money — or even to call customer service to complain about it!
Statute of Limitations *Expires March 11, 2009* for Bush's Spying Crimes... No One Has Noticed!... Maybe No One Cares...
As Jason Leopold reported a month and a half ago and nobody noticed, the statute of limitations will expire on March 11, 2009, on Bush's unilateral decision to reauthorize the spy program absent a green light from the DOJ -- refused even by Ashcroft in his sick bed. Chairman John Conyers has proposed extending this and other statutes of limitations, but he can't do it alone.
In the past weeks, the Harper Administration has moved swiftly to push U.S. Iraq War resisters out of Canada, issuing removal orders to five more resisters who had resettled up north. Two have recently been forced out of the country, and the rest continue their appeals through the Canadian Courts. This adds to the growing number of U.S. war resisters in Canada who are being threatened with deportation and eventually U.S. military court martials and imprisonment.

Sixteen months after their armed standoff with federal officials ended in a peaceful, undercover arrest, Ed and Elaine Brown were back in New Hampshire yesterday to face weapons and conspiracy charges for their activities.

With growing rapidity, Americans are waking up to bits and pieces of news that all smell of fascism, defined as “a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.” ~ Alan Caruba
You think you are a law abiding citizen, don’t you? Think again! You have been, you are now, and you will continue to break the law for the rest of your life, because there are too many laws, with millions more laws to follow. Many of these laws are totally unconstitutional but have never been challenged in the courts. ~ Ron Ewart
It’s amazing to me that so many talking heads who seem befuddled as to what Obama is actually attempting to accomplish with his bound-to-fail stimulus bill cannot seem to see the forest for the trees. To put it another way, they cannot grasp what’s actually happening to We-the-People at the hands of the developing ‘Obama Emperium’. ~ Sher Zieve
Top: Rice, McFaul, Kagan, Slaughter, and Wolin Bottom: Emanuel, Summers, Orszag, Rouse, and Sutphen"Six former Rhodes Scholars (educated at Oxford University in Britain) and four others associated with the London School of Economics are serving in key posts in the Obama administration.

It is, perhaps, the greatest surprise since the citizens of Troy discovered that the wooden horse in their town square was not the generously gifted piece of public art they'd hoped. Sir Allen Stanford - the Texan billionaire who landed his Trojan helicopter at Lord's cricket ground and emerged with crates of cash - has turned out not to be the exquisitely cultured philanthropist his every action hitherto had indicated. ~ Marina Hyde

Thank you for all of the many emails from our readers concerned that something had happened to me or that the website was a thing of the past. I answered as many emails as I could. I think a post would be the best way to explain what has happened... Not being able to post has been very frustrating to say the least.
Here's what has been happening... I've been battling tendonitis in both hands and wrists for the past several months and an eye problem, this has truely been an uphill battle. The tendonitis is better but the eye problem is not yet resolved. Hopefully, this eye thing is a temporary issue.
I will attempt to resume daily posts providing my eye does not get worse or the tendonitis doesn't return with a vengence again. The last day I tried to post, both hands and wrists were wrapped and it was nearly impossible to type or do anything, the pain was unrelenting... I had no choice but to stop posting.
This eye problem makes it very difficult to read at times. I dread having to go to the eye doctor but it looks to be where I'm headed. I was hoping this problem would clear up on its own. I'll keep you updated on this eye thing.
Thanks again for all of the concern and caring. My readers are the best! Much love and hugs to you all!

The Growing State Sovereignty Movement... Sam Rohrer of PA... '10th Amendment Clearly Defines State Powers'
As more governors declare their opposition to the Stimulus Bill — which is now estimated to include more than $1 trillion in unfunded mandates for the states above and beyond the initial $800 billion cost — more and more state legislators across the nation have been introducing bills to assert state sovereignty under the 10th Amendment in an effort to assert the rights of their citizens and the authority of state governments against unwarranted interference by the federal government. ~ VIDEO
A new "homeowner bailout" plan announced by Obama promises taxpayer money to pay interest payments on homeowners who bought homes they couldn't afford. Or, put another way, all the responsible Americans who made their mortgage payments on time and who lived within their means are now going to be forced to pay for those who lived beyond their means and bought houses they couldn't afford.
Without any fanfare, pharmaceutical companies have been raising the prices of many of their drugs by 100 percent or more, according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of Minnesota.

A popular video circulating on You Tube shows the discovery of a spy camera and a microphone hidden inside a digital TV converter box. Such devices are part of a government and industry surveillance program that is undoubtedly connected to the forced digital TV switchover being rolled out in the UK and US. ~ VIDEOS
The Global Elite to Use New Global Media to Brainwash the 'Global Citizens'... (Ooops, I Mean 'Educate' the Global Citizens)
Elite members of the World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in Davos, Switzerland, recently considered a proposal for a new global television network to usher in a state of “global governance.” The concept strikes some as authoritarian, even totalitarian. But the parent company of Fox News was one of the sponsors of this year's gathering.
The UN and the World Bank are lobbying for a portion of the billions of dollars allocated to bailing out the West's banking systems to be diverted to prevent 400 million people sinking into poverty across Asia in the wake of the global economic crisis.

EPA to Act on Carbon Tax... (Another Scam! Soon You Will Be Taxed For Everything You Do and For Everything You Have!)
The Environmental Protection Agency is expected to act for the first time to regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that scientists blame for the warming of the planet, according to top Obama administration officials.
Much of the criticism of the $787 billion stimulus bill is focused on its cost. What's really at issue is a matter of life and death. Buried deep in the package, there is an expensive new healthcare program that could jeopardize the health, even the lives, of millions of patients.
News broke last week that Rahm Emanuel, now White House chief of staff, lived rent- free for years in the home of Rep. Rosa De Lauro (D-Conn.) - and failed to disclose the gift, as congressional ethics rules mandate. But this is only the tip of Emanuel’s previously undislosed ethics problems.
Brzezinski Fearing Progress 'Made' Could Go Up in Smoke... Class Warfare and Destruction of the New World Order
It’s not the pain suffered by the unemployed and homeless that concerns Brzezinski and the one-world patricians. It is the prospect of class warfare. It is the horrific prospect of losing it all. ~ VIDEO
