FDA Claims Walnuts to be Illegal Drugs -- Government Lunacy at its Best

Mike Barrett
Activist Post

Well the Food and Drug Administration has really made a name for themselves this time.

In response to claims by a company named Diamond Foods that walnuts possess health benefits, the FDA sent the company a letter informing them of their wrongdoing.

What did Diamond Foods do wrong? According to the FDA, claims made by Diamond Foods that omega-3′s found in walnuts produce health benefits make their walnuts “drugs”. As far as the FDA is concerned, these “drugs” can not be legally marketed in the United States without an approved new drug application

Tonight's Iowa Vote Count To Take Place At Secret Location

Concerns about subversion grow after Republican strategist says GOP establishment will not allow Ron Paul to win




Tonight's final vote tally for the Iowa caucuses will take place at a secret undisclosed location, an announcement that has stoked fears of vote fraud amongst Ron Paul supporters, concerns that were heightened following a Republican insider's claim that the GOP establishment will not allow Paul to win.
 The final Iowa vote count normally takes place at state party headquarters in Des Moines, but following dubious "security concerns" about Occupy protesters disrupting the tabulation process, the Republican Party of Iowa announced that it would be moving the final vote count to a secret undisclosed location.
The move occurred despite Occupy protest leaders confirming there were no plans to disrupt the caucuses themselves.

Halliburton charged with selling nuclear technology to Iran.


Under the NDAA now is the time to seize and shut down Halliburton.
Halliburton would now be in violation of the NDAA sanctions provisions, as well
as prior sanctions against Supporting and trading with the Terrorist Iranian Government.
"President Gerald Ford signed a directive in 1976 offering Tehran the chance
to buy and operate a U.S.-built reprocessing facility for extracting plutonium
from nuclear reactor fuel. The deal was for a complete 'nuclear fuel
cycle'."[41] At the time, Richard Cheney was the White House Chief of
Staff, and Donald Rumsfeld was the Secretary of Defense. The Ford
strategy paper said the "introduction of nuclear power will both provide for the
growing needs of Iran's economy and free remaining oil reserves for export or
conversion to petrochemicals."

Gardasil is now marketed towards men and women up to age 26 as a “preventative” tool against anal cancer. As of January 2010, Gardasil has been linked to 49 deaths and countless side-effects, while cancer associated with HPV is only responsible for 1% of all cancer deaths. Why then, is it being recommended to millions worldwide?

oliveoil2 210x138 3 Natural Fat Loss SolutionsIt is oftentimes a challenge to maintain a low body fat percentage when following a modern day schedule. Without enough time to prepare a fresh and balanced meal each day, you may find yourself packing on the pounds. Outside of eliminating the key factors that are most likely contributing to the unwanted accumulation of fat such as ubiquitous high-fructose corn syrup and excess sugar, a number of scientifically proven natural fat loss solutions do exist that can help you in the fight against excess fat.

1. Whey Protein

High quality whey protein is an essential tool in the fight against obesity. In fact, the overall anti-obesity effects of all dairy products have been found to depend largely on the amount of whey protein they contain. The key function of whey protein in controlling your weight is its powerful ability to help regulate food intake. One study from the University of Toronto found that whey protein contributes to the regulation of body weight by providing signals that help tell your brain that you are full.

Iran test fires battleship-sinking missile

Iran's military posturing in the Persian Gulf escalated on Monday after it test-fired a cruise missile it claimed could sink a battleship with a single strike.

Ten days of naval exercises along one of the world's most sensitive waterways ended with a flourish following the launch of Iran's latest surface-to-surface missile, known as the Qader, which is believed to have a range of about 125 miles.
Two more missiles of shorter range were fired later in the day, bringing the number launched in the past 48 hours to at least four. Iran test-fired a medium-range surface-to-air missile on Sunday.
Western powers were swift to condemn the latest tests, with France describing them as a "very bad signal to the international community." The war games have been accompanied by increasingly bellicose rhetoric from Iranian leaders.

The PTSD Epidemic | KPBS.org

— My conversation with Afghan War veteran Hamed Dost reminded me of the great collection of combat vets who are believed to suffer post-traumatic stress disorder.
Sonya Norman is a psychiatrist at the V.A. San Diego Medical Center. She says 30 percent of the veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan who use their services suffer from PTSD.
Hamed’s PTSD was expressed through nightmares and co-morbidities like depression and alcoholism. Norman says it can also be expressed through guilt and isolation. Some people with PTSD are constantly on edge, as if they are constantly in danger.
“That light switch that most of us have – where we feel in danger when there’s actual danger and turn it off when we feel safe again – they don’t have the light switch anymore,” said Norman.
Post-traumatic stress disorder didn't make it into the Diagnostic Manual of Mental Disorders until 1980. I asked Norman if that meant veterans of World War II and World War I didn’t get PTSD.

Inside The Media Assault Against Ron Paul and Independent Liberty

Corporate media talking heads simply cannot admit that the Ron Paul 2012 campaign, along with the inexorable momentum of the liberty movement as a whole, has now soared high enough to shatter the false political paradigm -- even crushing opponents in a wide array of corporate-backed polling results.

Of course so-called 'conservatives' cannot talk about the success of the Ron Paul 2012 campaign on air, and it's steadily becoming impossible to use their favorite tactic from the 2008 elections: pretend it doesn't exist.

How to Make Your New Years Resolution a Success


book 210x131 How to Make Your New Years Resolution a SuccessIn reality, a New Years resolution isn’t much different than any other resolution made on any other day. But still nearly everyone takes this time to set a new goal. Actually, the goal set is often the same as the previous year since people seldom follow through with their New Years resolution. Interestingly, not achieving that specific goal each year is making the following achievement that much more difficult due to so many subconscious past ‘failures’. For this reason it is very important to follow through with your goal setting, and here are a few extremely beneficial tips on how to do so.

Bringing Expired Debt Back to Life

No one was more surprised than Thomas Carpenito with the credit-card invitation that landed in his mailbox earlier this year.
The 27-year-old deli owner from White Plains, N.Y., had about $10,000 in old debts and a credit rating 200 points below "good." He recalled thinking the post office had delivered the letter to the wrong house.
Far from a mistake, the offer was part of a controversial and growing partnership between debt collectors and banks that profits both. To get the new credit card, Mr. Carpenito agreed to repay $400 on a seven-year-old debt that had expired under New York's statute of limitations.
"It was totally worth it," he said. Having no credit cards made Mr. Carpenito feel "like dirt," he said, especially when out on dates. His new credit card, stamped with the MasterCard Inc. logo, was offered by Jefferson Capital Systems LLC, the debt-collection arm of CompuCredit Holdings Corp., in Atlanta.

There have been many perpetual devices designed over the years, some intercepted by big corporations, others under-funded as they slip through the cracks and never make it to the market.
It is hard to patent a perpetual device as governments of the world want this technology for themselves.
People have been killed over this type stuff.
Interestingly, Wikipedia goes along with the corporate lie to say essentially that perpetual motion is nonsense and can’t be achieved.
An excerpt from Wikipedia reads like a script from the elite themselves;
Perpetual motion describes hypothetical machines that operate or produce useful work indefinitely and, more generally, hypothetical machines that produce more work or energy than they consume, whether they might operate indefinitely or not.

An article posted by CBS St. Louis appears to reinforce the idea that an increasing number of people feel as though societal collapse is a very real possibility, and is not just ranting from the dark corners of the Internet.

Citing such events as the obvious worldwide political uprisings and the failing global economy, one store manager in Missouri notes:

Published: 02 January, 2012, 12:36
One of the first promises made by President Obama when he first came to power back in 2008 was to close the controversial Guantanamo Bay detention centre. Four years later it is still operational.
­The former chief prosecutor of the Gitmo military commissions, Colonel Morris Davis, who was thrilled when Obama took office, told RT of his huge disappointment in the US president.
“Candidate Obama said all the right things about justice and American values and closing Guantanamo and doing away with military commissions and applauding the rule of law,” he told RT’s Gayane Chichakyan. ”And then once he gets in office…. If he did just embrace the Bush’s policies, he kissed him on the lips and ran with them. And he advanced them further than President Bush ever did.”

Americans buy record numbers of guns for Christmas

Americans bought record numbers of guns last month amid an apparent surge in popularity for weapons as Christmas presents.

According to the FBI, over 1.5 million background checks on customers were requested by gun dealers to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System in December. Nearly 500,000 of those were in the six days before Christmas.

It was the highest number ever in a single month, surpassing the previous record set in November.

“Who’s going to object to referring to the Sunni insurgency in post-war Iraq as yet another attack by al-Qaeda?”

While surfing the morning news, Most people would indifferently glance at this headline “Al-Qaida in Iraq says it was behind Baghdad blasts” and fail to grasp the real story behind it. But then, how could they not when the story is presented to them with such a deceiving title to begin with.
Now that the boys are out of the Iraqi swamp, a smart move in Obama’s electoral campaign,why should any American care what happens in that remote area on planet earth called Iraq- a place most Americans failed to locate on the map in a National geographic survey in 2006.
The American military and the so called coalition forces raided Iraq in 2003 in a search for the alleged presence of military training camps for the so called al-Qaeda and hidden depots packed with tons of weapons of mass destruction(WMD).

On the eve of 2012, President Obama has, with the stroke of a pen, ended America as we know it.
With the National Defense Authorization Act now signed into law, American citizens can and possibly will be indefinitely detained by the military if they have been “accused” of any terrorist related activity.
In a press release published today, the ACLU further outlined their opposition to this unconstitutional law and highlighted the fact that Obama will now be known as the president who signed  indefinite detention of Americans, far from any battlefield, into law.

SAN DIEGO — U.S. troops are increasingly using an easy-to-get herbal mix called "Spice," which mimics a marijuana high, is hard to detect and can bring on hallucinations that last for days.
The abuse of the substance has so alarmed military officials that they've launched an aggressive testing program that this year has led to the investigation of more than 1,100 suspected users.
So-called "synthetic" pot is readily available on the Internet and has become popular nationwide in recent years, but its use among troops and sailors has raised concerns among the Pentagon brass.

2011: Piracy Wars and Internet Censorship

Looking back at the past 12 months it’s fair to conclude that 2011 was the year that the entertainment industries focused on piracy-fueled Internet censorship. Domain seizures, DNS blockades, raids and arrests dominated the news, and the threat of the SOPA and PIPA bills in the US left millions of Internet users worried. Let’s see how events unfolded.
At the end of the year when new developments draw to a close, it’s time to take a look back and take stock. Below is our overview of some of the most interesting events we reported during the first half of 2011.
Take a deep breath…

January

After pressure from the entertainment industries, Google started to censor piracy-related keywords from its instant and autocomplete services. Keywords such as ‘torrent,’ ‘BitTorrent’ and ‘RapidShare’ were excluded from the start, and later in the year Google added a wide range of new terms including ‘The Pirate Bay.’
Google pirate bayDespite these efforts the RIAA remained dissatisfied, patronizing the search engine with a could-do-much-better “Report Card” in December.
The mass-BitTorrent lawsuits that entered the US during 2010 reached a new milestone in 2011 with the 100,000th person being sued for alleged copyright infringement. In January alone several prominent lawsuits were added. Anime distributor Funimation announced a lawsuit against 1337 alleged BitTorrent downloaders, and the rights holders of “The Expendables” and Paris Hilton sex tape did the same.
One alleged BitTorrent user paid a mysterious settlement of $250,000.

As we prepare to enter 2012, a number of crucial issues confront us:

Economy: The bankster engineered implosion of the economy – beginning in 2008 with the collapse of the housing market – will likely reach a crescendo in 2012. The eurozone contagion will spread, taking down global economies. It will diminish national sovereignty across the board. The global elite are positioned to offer their world government and banking scheme as a curative and there will be increased pressure to implement their underhanded plan in the coming year.

 

War: 2012 will more than likely be the year the globalists make their move on Iran and also take down Syria. In recent weeks, the Iranians have awakened from their lethargy and are now making defensive gestures on the world stage. Over the past week Iran has stated in no uncertain terms its military will shut down the Persian Gulf oil trade by blocking the Strait of Hormuz if new sanctions on gas – in effect, a war embargo – are implemented. Iran’s ability to intensify and compound the global economic crisis and get nuclear super powers China and Russia involved in a coming cataclysmic war are all part of the plan to realize order out of chaosRead more here

    When we exposed the U.S. government’s long list of medical crimes against humanity back in 2006, the mainstream media was silent (http://www.naturalnews.com/019187.html). People insisted the government was ethical and honest, and it could never be involved in crimes against humanity. (ROFL!) When the truth came out about Guatemalan prisoner experiments, however, it went viral so quickly the mainstream media couldn’t whitewash the story.

U.S. Special Ops Team Crosses the Border into Mexico; Escorted by Mexican Military

Mario Andrade
Deadline Live

Last week, a U.S. special operations team was seen crossing the border from Brownsville, Texas into Matamoros, Mexico. Eyewitness reports mention that the U.S. convoy consisted of two or perhaps three SUV’s with what appeared to be armed military personnel on board.

The Mexican military waited on the Matamoros side of the border, and once the U.S. team crossed into Mexico, they escorted them to a nearby military base. The Mexican military and the local police in Matamoros apparently established a route to escort the Americans because traffic cops were placed ahead of time in order to quickly get the convoy through Avenida Sexta (Sixth Avenue).

A helicopter followed the convoy from the U.S. side of the border until it reached the Mexican military base. A video showing the convoy in Matamoros was broadcasted by Univision.

Des Moines "Occupy" protest ---10 arrested

By JENS KROGSTAD,REGINA ZILBERMINTS and GRANT RODGERS
Protests that sought to highlight the role of corporate cash in politics resulted in the arrests of 10 people Wednesday outside Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s campaign offices and a Wells Fargo branch office.


  • Photos: 34 pictures of Wednesday’s Occupy protests in Des Moines

  • Organizers said the “Occupy Iowa Caucus” demonstrations will be followed by protests, and perhaps more arrests, at President Barack Obama’s campaign office today, and other Republican candidates’ offices Friday.

    Demonstrators, aware of the national spotlight on Iowa leading up to Tuesday’s caucuses, focused on a simple message — corporate money in politics — they hoped would resonate in households nationally and create fresh momentum for the Occupy Wall Street movement.

    To draw a direct line between Romney and Wells Fargo, about 75 chanting demonstrators Wednesday from at least six states asked both Romney and the bank to make their tax returns public.

    They also asked Romney, a multimillionaire former businessman, to return $61,500 from political action committees and individuals with ties to Wells Fargo, according to figures compiled by OpenSecrets .org.
    The bank, in a statement, said that its PAC does not donate to presidential campaigns.
     
    Nationally, 40 Wells Fargo employees have contributed $49,250 to Romney’s campaign, according to campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Elections Commission. The Register was not able to immediately determine how much their relatives may have contributed.

    US downsizing top-heavy ranks in military



    For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the US has started culling generals and admirals from its top-heavy ranks to save money and make the military more nimble.

    With the Iraq war over and US troops in Afghanistan on their way home, the Pentagon officials said they have eliminated 27 jobs for generals and admirals since March.

    This is the first time the Defense Department has imposed such a reduction since the aftermath of the Cold War, when the collapse of the Soviet Union prompted the military to downsize, the Washington Post reported.

    The cuts are part of a broader plan to shrink the upper ranks by 10 per cent over five years, restoring them to the their size when the country was last at peace, before the attacks of September 11, 2001.

    Justifying War with Iran

    By on Dec 26, 2011 A growing body of evidence points to a concerted campaign to prepare Americans and the world for war against Iran. This is not idle speculation. It fits a pattern that repeatedly preceded previous hostilities.
    Here are the recent examples on Iran:
    -The claim that Iran is a WMD threat.  Pretty much everyone is familiar with the long-term, continuing efforts to paint Iran as some kind of nuclear threat. This ignores the possibility that Iran is telling the truth in contending it is embarked on solely non-military nuclear research (debatable), and serious doubts among many experts that Iran is preparing nuclear weapons. Perhaps most important, it discounts the fact that many countries (including Iran’s arch-enemy Israel) have nuclear weapons, and disregards the undoubted truth that if a country like Iran ever did launch nuclear weapons, it would be wiped out in a nanosecond, creating a very strong disincentive for offensive use. At the same time, by encouraging other countries and internal foes to believe that it has nuclear weapons, Iran creates an inexpensive protective shield for its regime. A dangerous game, to be sure, but without further evidence of Iranian nukes, hardly a reason to launch a war that would surely cause even more death and destruction than the misguided Iraq invasion.

    Do you seriously believe that what you currently buy from the supermarkets and hypermarkets is actually providing you with your nutritional needs?  Do you even care? Or are you “too busy to think about it.” Do you ever read the label on the packaging? Do you know what all those 'e' numbers are or mean? The synthetic preservatives, colors and additives which form a significant part of the 'food' you eat – do you realize what they are doing to you and your children and your grandchildren?

    Well I'll tell you: they are destroying your immune systems – that's what they are doing. They are eating away at your natural resistance to disease. They are hardening your arteries. They are blocking up the valves of your heart. They are contributing to the chances of getting cancer. Have you noticed that people  are getting sick more and more frequently? If you haven't noticed you must have been asleep for the past decade. How many times have you felt “really well” recently? Not often? Have you wondered why?

    Police Hospitalized Old Man no charges

    Cops raided apartment, punched owner in the face, stomped on his head, and then laughed at him as they tossed his apartment looking for drugs - found none

    A state police raid on a Winthrop Avenue apartment netted no drugs or arrests—but it left Tomas Torres hospitalized and his apartment in tatters.

    Torres (pictured), who’s 54, said state cops broke down the door of his first-floor Winthrop Avenue apartment , punched him in the face, stomped on his head, and then laughed at him as they tossed his apartment looking for drugs.

    Police said he tried to jump out the window, then resisted their efforts to detain and handcuff him.

    They had the wrong guy, said Torres. The police found nothing in his apartment and released him to go to the hospital, where he said he was told he has a fractured arm, he said.

    US warns Iran over threat to block oil route

    Admiral Habibollah Sayari outlines naval manoeuvres near the Strait of Hormuz Admiral Habibollah Sayari says Iran could easily close the Strait of Hormuz US Navy has said it will not tolerate disruption to a vital oil-trade route, following an Iranian threat to close it. Iran warned it would shut the Strait of Hormuz if the West imposed more sanctions over its nuclear programme.
    The US and its allies believe Iran is trying to develop a nuclear weapon - a charge Tehran denies.
    Reacting to Iran's warning, a US Fifth Fleet spokeswoman said it was "always ready to counter malevolent actions".
    The Strait of Hormuz links the Gulf - and the oil-producing states of Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) - to the Indian Ocean. About 40% of the world's tanker-borne oil passes through it.

    Iowa GOP moving vote-count to 'undisclosed location': to prevent a Ron Paul victory.

    Threats to disrupt the Iowa Republican caucuses next week have prompted state GOP officials to move the vote tabulation to an "undisclosed location," POLITICO has learned.

    The state party has not yet told the campaigns exactly where the returns will be added up, only that it will be off-site from the Iowa GOP's Des Moines headquarters.  The 2008 caucus results were tabulated at the state party offices, which sit just a few blocks from the state capitol.

    No Fear: Memory Adjustment Pills Get Pentagon Push



    The Pentagon hasn’t come close to solving the PTSD crisis plaguing the current generation of troops. But a cutting-edge realm of treatment might change that — by wiping away the fear that military personnel associate with traumatic memories.
    The Pentagon this week announced an $11 million grant for three research institutions, all of them long-time hubs for the military’s ongoing PTSD investigations. Experts at Emory University, the University of Southern California and New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center will study the effectiveness of D-Cycloserine (DCS). DCS is a pharmaceutical thought to help extinguish fearful memories. It’s usually taken right before exposure therapy, a process that involves recalling traumatic experiences in an effort to nullify the menacing associations that accompany them.
    “We already know that exposure therapy is an effective [therapy] for PTSD, and we want to figure out how to optimize it,” Dr. Barbara Rothbaum, who will lead the Emory team’s research, told Danger Room. “I really think that this study will move beyond the theoretical. We can rescue people.”
    Exposure therapy is thought to work by allowing patients to revisit traumas in safe settings. Every time the mind remembers an event, it “rewrites” that recollection. By helping a patient rewrite traumatic memories to be less frightening, studies suggest that exposure therapy can significantly improve symptoms like nightmares and flashbacks.

    The transparency problem: the government will not tell you why it’s legal to kill you

    Activist Post

    President Barack Obama has leveraged heavy rhetoric on the subject of transparency for some time now, even going as far as to publish on the official White House website that his “Administration is committed to an unprecedented level of openness in Government.”

    If this is open government, I can’t begin to imagine what a closed government is.

    After Anwar al-Awlaki was allegedly assassinated in Yemen, the New York Times sought to find out the legal basis for the Obama administration’s secretive “kill list” which apparently can now include United States citizens.

    The complaint, made by plaintiffs The New York Times Company, Charlie Savage, Scott Shane, and their undersigned attorney was filed after the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) refused to release agency records in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

    The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has decided to deregulate two of Monsanto’s genetically modified seed varieties, giving the company a further grasp on the food supply of the nation. One of the modified corn seed varieties is engineered to resist drought conditions, and the other is an herbicide-resistant soybean that has been genetically engineered to produce more fatty acids. Of course research has found that Monsanto’s GMO crops, despite claims to be resistant to herbicides and pesticides, actually require significantly more harsh chemicals. Apparently these studies do not concern the USDA, an organization that has always been adam

    Security Theater'? TSA Confiscates Woman's Frosted Cupcake



    A Massachusetts woman who flew home from Las Vegas this week says an airport security officer confiscated her frosted cupcake because he thought its vanilla-bourbon icing could be a "security risk."
    Rebecca Hains told ABCNews.com today that a Transportation Security Administration agent at Las Vegas- McCarran International Airport seized her cupcake, saying the frosting sitting atop the red velvet cake was gel-like enough to violate regulations.
    The incident took place Wednesday.
    Hains, a teacher, said the cupcake was a gift from one of her students. She was traveling with her husband and toddler, and thought her young son might get hungry on the long trip home.
    The cupcake was packaged in a glass container with a metal lid, which was why it attracted the attention of the scanner in the first place.
    The TSA agent didn't know what to do with the cupcake, so she called over her supervisor, Hains said.
    "The TSA supervisor, Robert Epps, was using really bad logic - he said it counted as a gel-like substance because it was conforming to the shape of its container."
    "We also had a small pile of hummus sandwiches with creamy fillings, which made it through, but the cupcake with its frosting was apparently a terrorist threat…I just don't know what world he was living in," said Hains, speaking of the TSA officer.

    China, slave state where the family is outlawed, and the rich breed in secret

    December 26, 2011
    A controversial case in China where a couple with eight children was found out exposes that reality that the “strict” one child policy is really a double standard where the rich pay to populate the future, while the eugenics slave state cracks down on the family and restricts the reproductive rights of the masses.
    An ‘unnamed couple’ from the southern metropolis of Guangzhou were reported to authorities after taking studio photos with their eight children– all born with within a two-month window last year. The infertile couple paid for in-vitro fertilization treatment that led to triplets, while two surrogate mothers gave birth “illegally” to an additional five children.

Two days ago, one local resident, Adnan Mustafa, posted on Facebook several photographs of some of these items, which were found scattered around the area. The gadgets, pictured here, look suspiciously like surreptitious listening devices.

    Iran's Navy starts 10 Day War Games


    Reuters) - Iran began 10 days of naval exercises in the Strait of Hormuz on Saturday, raising concern about a possible closure of the world's most strategic oil transit channel in the event of any outbreak of military conflict between Tehran and the West.

    Some analysts and diplomats believe the Islamic Republic could try to block the strait in the event of any war with the West over suspicions it is seeking atom bombs. Iran's arch-foes Israel and the United States have not ruled out military action if diplomacy and sanctions fail to rein in Iran's nuclear work.

    A New York judge has signed a judgment that finds Iran, along with the Taliban and al-Qaeda liable for the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks.

    by Joshua Blakeney


    Press TV has interviewed Joshua Blakeney of Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Veterans Today from Calgary, Alberta to discuss the situation. What follows is a rough transcription of the interview:
    Press TV: Josh Blakeney, let’s focus for a moment on the many doubts and questions as [another speaker on the show] Foad Izadi said that exist about the 9/11 commission.
    The U.S. waged two wars using the 9/11 attacks as a pretext. What do you think about the 9/11 Commission Report and didn’t the US allow an international investigation led by the UN over the terrorist attacks?
    Blakeney: Yeah, I’m doing my graduate work at the university of Lethbridge here in Canada on the events of 9/11. I’ve been studying 9/11 intensively for four years now.
    And indeed I’m the recipient of the Queen Elizabeth student graduate scholarship and having studied 9/11 for 4 years I can concur with [another speaker on the show] Professor Fetzer that the official story of 9/11 is provably false.

    The 9/11 commission report was a complete hoax.

    It’s Mitt Romney v. Ron Paul In Virginia As Other Candidates Fail To Qualify For Primary Ballot

    Sunday, December 25, 2011
    When you’re running to be the next President of the United States, it’s generally a good idea to make sure people are able to vote for you. But in a surprise twist in this already twisted-up campaign, both Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry will not be on the ballot when Virginia Republican voters go to cast their vote for their party’s nominee, meaning the primary in that state will boil down to a contest between Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.
    Several months ago, Gingrich did not file for the Missouri primary, but made a deliberate decision to do so based on his campaign strategy. This time around, Gingrich actively pursued getting on the ballot in Virginia, claiming to have reached the 10,000 signature threshold to qualify. Perry’s campaign claimed they had reached it as well, but after state party officials went through all the signatures to validate them, neither candidate ended up qualifying.
