It's Not Gun Control - It's People Control!

A video well worth watching!
Obama's Ex-Secret Agent, Dan Bongino, speaks his mind regarding gun control, AKA citizen disarmament.



Couldn't agree more!

This video gives an excellent reason as to why magazine bans and magazine restrictions are really very bad ideas.

Drone Manhunt In Progress



Like something out of a dystopian sci-fi novel, the State of California and Federal government are currently hunting down a man using heat seeking drones. That man is ex LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department) cop Christopher Dorner - who some say is a maniac killer on the loose and others say is a whistle blower who attempted to uncover corruption in the LAPD and is now paying the price.

Zerohedge posted this:
Authorities offer $1 million reward for information leading to arrest of ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner

We were hoping to evade coverage of the latest mass distraction du jour, that of the former LAPD officer Chris Dorner who recently went rogue following a three man murder spree and who has vowed to kill again as per his 6,000 word manifesto, but the US government had made it impossible following confirmation that the search for Dorner is now the first official drone-hunt in US history.

The Express reports:
Yesterday, as a task force of 125 officers, some riding Snowcats in the rugged terrain, continued their search, it was revealed that Dorner has become the first human target for remotely-controlled airborne drones on US soil.

A senior police source said: “The thermal imaging cameras the drones use may be our only hope of finding him. On the ground, it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack.”

Asked directly if drones have already been deployed, Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz, who is jointly leading the task force, said: “We are using all the tools at our disposal.”

The use of drones was later confirmed by Customs and Border Patrol spokesman Ralph DeSio, who revealed agents have been prepared for Dorner to make a dash for the Mexican border since his rampage began.

He said: “This agency has been at the forefront of domestic use of drones by law enforcement. That’s all I can say at the moment.”
And once Dorner is found by remote-control, it will be again up to drones to secure his "elimination." If for no other reason than to perform a ground test of just how the recently enacted drone-facilitated extermination of US citizens sits with various instances of the US judicial system.

It is interesting to me how soon after the White House determines that drones can legally hunt and kill American Citizens, that we have an actual manhunt in progress.  One can easily wonder who the real Domestic Terrorist is in this case.

It used to be that when a man was presumed guilty of a crime, all efforts were made to capture the person and put him on trial to face a jury of his peers - now it seems our government is just as satisfied to be judge, jury and executioner... with no trial or due process necessary.

In the meantime, LAPD has been shooting up people's cars, searching homes and cars without a warrant, and basically doing whatever the hell they want to - all in the name of  capturing one person.
In fact, I find it humorous that they are placing all kinds of guards and patrols on the border to make sure Dorner doesn't leave the country, and yet they cannot stop thousands of illegal aliens from coming into the US!

To prevent further mishaps of LAPD shooting up vehicles suspected of containing Mr. Dorner, CA residents have begun placing placards on their vehicles like this one:

African Lab Rats


While people talk of the tragedy of 20 elementary school children being shot down in Newtown, CT, perhaps we ought to also consider the tragedy of the other kind of "shots" ... shots made by pharmaceutical companies which kill and maim children. The following article is quite disturbing, and it demonstrates how young children, poor young children especially,  are seemingly being used as lab rats and ultimately being damaged by some new vaccines.

50 African Children Paralyzed after receiving Bill Gates-backed Meningitis Vaccine

By: Ethan A. Huff
Bill and Melinda Gates have been on a crusade for at least the past decade to vaccinate every single child on the planet. And one of their primary geographical targets has been the continent of Africa, where poor sanitation's and lack of clean water have created conditions in which diseases like meningitis and malaria run rampant. But rather than try to meet these basic needs, the multi-billionaires and their many allies have instead thrust vaccines on indigenous populations as the solution, which has in turn sparked a wave of paralysis among Africa's younger populations.

As covered by investigative journalist Christina England over at Vactruth.com, the small village of Gouro in northern Chad, for instance, recently fell victim to the dark side of this vaccine agenda after at least 50 youth in the area developed paralysis following vaccination with "MenAfriVac," a new meningitis vaccine developed specifically for Africa. Touted as a preventive cure for meningitis, MenAfriVac reportedly caused each of the children, some of whom were as young as seven, to suffer hallucinations, convulsions, and ultimately paralysis.

According to a cousin of two of the vaccine-injured children, the horrific side effects of MenAfriVac began to appear within 24 hours of its administration. Many of the children affected by it immediately began to experience headaches and vomiting, which later progressed into "uncontrollable convulsions while bent over with saliva coming from their mouths." But when parents and local authorities tried to call on higher-up government officials to take action and help the affected children, their petitions for relief were all but ignored.

Government of Chad attempts to bribe parents into silence

This same cousin, who is referred to by England as "Mr. M.," added that when Chad's Minister of Health and Minister of Social Security finally showed up to Gouro nearly a week after the series of paralyzations first took place, they decided to evacuate the 50 paralyzed children to a hospital more than 300 miles away, as there is only one available doctor in the entire region of Gouro.

But rather than try to get to the bottom of why MenAfriVac caused such a serious reaction in the first place, and immediately halt all further distribution of the vaccine until this could be determined, these same government officials actually tried to bribe suffering parents with money to keep quiet about it. According to Mr. M., these officials were more concerned with covering up the dangers of ManAfriVac than with protecting villagers from harm.

"[T]he government and the media have gone silent about the tragedy, while there are still facts requiring clarification," stated Mr. M. in an email to England about the incident. At this point in time, virtually no media has picked up on this important story. "All this disturbs us and makes us fear the worst effects for the future. [I]t is very sad that (the) entire city is paralyzed."

Gates Foundation, WHO lie about safety of MenAfriVac

Worse is the fact that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Health Organization (WHO), and The Meningitis Vaccine Project (MVP), all of which heavily promote MenAfriVac, have openly lied about the safety of the vaccine by repeatedly claiming it can be transported without refrigeration. The vaccine's package insert clearly states that it must be stored refrigerated and protected from light.

"Why have major organizations spent $571 million on a vaccination project, when wells to provide access to clean drinking water have been constructed for less than $3,000 by the International Committee of the Red Cross?" asks England in a series of important questions regarding this disastrous situation. "Why has this vaccination program not been suspended, (and) what are these organizations going to do about the atrocity that has happened in Gouro?"
Lots of good questions being asked... but will anyone get answers?
It's highly doubtful, and very disturbing indeed.

U.S. Gov't Wants To Help Manage Your IRA



A recent Bloomberg article stated this:
The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is weighing whether it should take on a role in helping Americans manage the $19.4 trillion they have put into retirement savings, a move that would be the agency’s first foray into consumer investments.

“That’s one of the things we’ve been exploring and are interested in in terms of whether and what authority we have,” bureau director Richard Cordray said in an interview. He didn’t provide additional details.

The bureau’s core concern is that many Americans, notably those from the retiring Baby Boom generation, may fall prey to financial scams, according to three people briefed on the CFPB’s deliberations who asked not to be named because the matter is still under discussion.

The retirement savings business in the U.S. is dominated by a group of companies that handle record-keeping and management of investments in tax-advantaged vehicles like 401(k) plans and individual retirement accounts. The group includes Fidelity Investments, JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM), Charles Schwab Corp. (SCHW) and T. Rowe Price Group Inc. (TROW) Americans held $19.4 trillion in retirement assets as of Sept. 30, 2012, according to the Investment Company Institute, an industry association; about $3.5 trillion of that was in 401(k) plans.

The Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Labor are the main regulators of U.S. retirement savings vehicles and funds. However, the consumer bureau -- established by the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act -- sees itself as a potential catalyst for promoting a coherent policy across the government, the people said.


With large numbers of Americans heading toward retirement in the coming decade, the CFPB has referred internally to this concept as “the rollover moment,” the people said.

Mark Calabria, director of financial regulation studies at the Cato Institute, a research group that promotes free markets, said that while Dodd-Frank didn’t specifically give the consumer bureau jurisdiction over investments, it could step in if the other agencies don’t.

I could imagine the CFPB growing into a role on investment savings if it seems like the SEC is asleep at the wheel,” Calabria said in an interview.

The bureau could claim jurisdiction through its Office for Older Americans, which was established by Dodd-Frank with a mandate to improve financial literacy. It is run by Hubert H. Humphrey III, the former attorney general of Minnesota.

The retirement savings industry generally has little to do with the CFPB because the SEC is the main investment regulator, said Ianthe Zabel, an ICI spokeswoman. She declined further comment on the CFPB plans.


The agency officially began work in July 2011 and has focused much of its attention so far on consumer credit products, including credit cards and mortgages. In coming months, the agency is expected to turn their focus to short-term credit products including prepaid debit cards, bank overdraft fees and payday lending.

Longer-term, in addition to focusing on retirement savings, the bureau is studying mobile payments and the plight of Americans whose credit was damaged during the financial crisis, a group officials refer to as “the new subprime.”

I am pretty certain that the government's help is not something anyone with half a brain would want - I mean look at what a bang up job Washington has done managing their own monetary affairs! and somehow they think they can help you with YOUR retirement money decisions??? Yeah - Right!

Looks to me that all they want is the authority and opportunity to get their hands on YOUR funds...
It is entirely feasible that when the government runs out of it's own money, or they face the inability to pay the interest on their own debt, that they will come looking to get their hands on the $19.4 trillion in American’s retirement accounts.

Getting financial advice or giving the government the opportunity to manage retirement funds is something only a fool would do... and afterwards they would be a totally poor fool and ultimately dependent on government for handouts as well.

Well, I have to admit that some sound advice the government is giving people now is to beware of scams...and that is prudent advice indeed, especially if they are government scams.
