FLASHBACK: High-Ranking Mexican Drug Cartel Member Makes Explosive Allegation: ‘Fast and Furious’ Is Not What You Think It Is

A high-ranking Mexican drug cartel operative currently in U.S. custody is making startling allegations that the failed federal gun-walking operation known as “Fast and Furious” isn’t what you think it is.

MADE UP: Authorities Never Have “Issues With Authority”

It’s simple. Authorities invented the idea that other people have issues with authority. Psychiatrists rank right up there among the elitists setting the standards. They, for example, have concocted a little fictional doodad called Oppositional Defiance Disorder. And magically, they never accuse their professional colleagues of having it. No. Why should they? They amuse themselves by deciding when civilians ...

CORPORATISM: Supreme Court Colludes with Monsanto

It's no surprise. Michael Parenti calls America's High Court its "autocratic branch." It's notoriously pro-business. It's longstanding. In Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railway (1886), it granted corporations legal personhood. More recently, in Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes et al (June 2011), it denied longstanding sexual discrimination class action redress. It overruled a Ninth Circuit Court of A ...

ORWELLIAN: Senate Panel Approves Even More Stringent Biometric Measures

"The secret in propaganda is that when you demonize, you dehumanize," says James Forsher, a film historian. "When you dehumanize, it allows you to kill your enemy and no longer feel guilty about it." Apparently illegal immigrants have been sufficiently dehumanized to force them into biometric tracking. There's no way the government would use biometrics to track the superior law-abiding natives, right?  More ...

THE MIRACLE OF TEA TREE OIL: 80 Amazing Uses for Survival

Essential oils have been used for healing and medicinal purposes for centuries and most certainly long before we had pills, capsules and big pharma to take care of our medical woes. And while there is a place for manufactured pharmaceuticals in our survival medicine kit, there exists the possibility that none will be available or that they will be in such scarce supply that they should be reserved for only ...

COMING COLLAPSE: Are Japanese Bonds Signaling Trouble?

A previous article discussed the disconnect between soaring markets and troubled economies. Liquidity driven markets only skyrocket so long. What can't go on forever, won't. No one's sure when. Eventually the music stops. When that happens, watch out. Signals provide clues. Fed governors hint at slowing QE. Some analysts think by year end or sooner. Bond prices affect other markets. Spiking Japanese soverei ...
