Paul Rosenberg ~ Bribery In America

” The department that handles the most money can skim off the most to you. For example, the best donations in the US House of Representatives always went to the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. Why? Because that committee put together the budget for the whole US government. Own some of that man, and you can dip your hand into the money stream at the headwaters.” ~Paul Rosenberg

briberyI know something about bribery. When I was a teenager, my dad was in the construction business in Chicago. So, as soon as I got my driver’s license (at 16), I was sent out delivering bribes. That’s just the way things were done, and my dad let me drive a fancy car (with an FM radio!) to make the deliveries.

I delivered leather coats to wives, envelopes to government offices, other envelopes to politicians at their fundraisers, booze to lots of people, and in one case, the answers to the state driver’s exam to a guy in… um… a different line of work.

I extricated myself from these chores fairly quickly. Aside from the cool car, it made me uncomfortable. These escapades did, however, give me a fairly good understanding of how bribery in America works.

Big League Bribery

Most of the bribery I did as a kid was fairly mundane – minor league stuff. The one exception was the political fundraiser. That was big league bribery. Following explicit orders, I dressed up and stood in a greeting line for as long as it took to come face to face with the politician. I handed him the envelope and told him precisely who it was from. I shook his hand and he told me to please enjoy the buffet. I thanked him, then stepped away. Continue reading

Gov’t Employee Testifies Under Oath That Voting Machines Can Be Manipulated [Video]

Thomas Dishaw  May 7 2014

Rep. Tom Feeney (Fmr. Speaker of The House in Florida) employed this man from Oviedo, FL to rig elections and flip them 51% to 49%. Exit polling data was proven to be significantly different than the published results. Rep. Feeney was also the lobbyist for Yang Enterprises, the company who delivered the program.

Chris Carrington ~ Lawmakers Vote To Cut Food Stamps In 2014

The Daily Sheeple  September 20 2013

Despite a veto from the White House and opposition from lobby groups, the House of Representatives has voted to cut food stamp benefits in 2014. It’s thought some $4 billion a year could be saved.

Drug testing and work requirements mean that an estimated 4 million people would be affected by the changes.

Lloyd Dogget (Rep TX) called it the “Let them starve bill” but the move was defended by Eric Cantor (Rep VA) who said:

“This bill is designed to give people a hand when they need it most. And most people don’t choose to be on food stamps. Most people want a job. They want what we want. Source)

Michael Snyder ~ 20 Controversial Questions The Mainstream Media Won’t Touch With A Ten Foot Pole

TheTruth July 24 2013

Why are so many incredibly important news stories completely ignored by the mainstream media in the United States?  Why do they seem to want to avoid many “controversial questions” as if they were the plague?  Why does the media tend to label those that are willing to ask the hard questions and seek the truth as “conspiracy theorists”?  Sadly, the truth is that the mainstream media in America does not do much real journalism anymore.  At this point, approximately 90 percent of what you see on television is controlled by just 6 giant media corporations.  That is why “the news” seems to be so similar no matter what channel you watch.  Well, it turns out that a lot of Americans are getting tired of the safe, censored, pre-packaged news that they get from the corporate-controlled media.  One recent poll found that 77 percent of all Americans do not trust television news at this point.  This distrust has helped fuel the rise of the alternative media, which has absolutely exploded in recent years.

These days, if an important news story is deemed to be “too controversial” or threatens an important political or corporate interest, it is usually first broken either by the alternative media or by a foreign news source.  If the story gets enough traction, sometimes the mainstream media will eventually start covering it as well.

But without a doubt the version of “the news” that is presented to us by the mainstream media is very tightly controlled.  It doesn’t really matter what “the truth” actually is – if a particular story is going to hurt their corporate owners, their corporate advertisers or their favorite politicians, the “gatekeepers” will try to keep that story out of the news.

It is a very twisted system, and the American people need to realize that this is how it actually works.  The media is not there to tell us the truth or to look out for our interests.  Rather, the media is there to “define reality” for us and to tell uswhat to think.

Today, the average American watches 153 hours of television a month.  That is a staggering amount of information that is being pumped into our brains, and they don’t call it “programming” for no reason.

Congressional Testimony ~ Randy J. Albert to Bill Windsor Of Lawless America [Video]

lawlessamerica | December 8 2012

Randy says ~ I’ve divided this blog up in nine parts and I was lucky enough to get a very talented reporter to edit part 2 and 3 which details events in the year I started this taxi in 2000 until the beginning of 2007. I’ve decided to use part 1 to list some of the details that are in the other 8 parts and to explain a few things since my story is lengthy. One person that read it told me it’s so outlandish and overwhelming that it has to be true. Well it is all completely true and nothing has been even slightly embellished.

Dennis Kucinich ~ Weapons Of Mass Destraction [Video]

 | October 10 2002

Ten years ago, on October 10, 2002, the United States House of Representatives made one of the most calamitous mistakes of a generation. Congress, with willful blindness, voted to attack, invade and occupy a sovereign, oil-rich nation in the Middle East that did not attack us and did not pose a threat to the American people.

The war in Iraq will ultimately cost the United States five trillion dollars. Four thousand, four hundred, eighty eight Americans were killed. Tens of thousands of Americans were injured. At least one million innocent Iraqis were killed. Iraq has become a home to Al Qaida which it certainly was not before our intervention. Resentment against the United States has made pursuing peace more difficult. And we still have thousands of armed contractors in Iraq — paid for by U.S. taxpayers.

Simon Black ~ Why Is The US Government Planning For ‘Mass Fatalities’ ?

Sovereign Man | October 5 2012

You just can’t make this stuff up.

Late last week, a bill HR 6566 was introduced on the floor of the US House of Representatives. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read it.

The bill is entitled the “Mass Fatality Planning and Religious Considerations Act,” and its stated purpose is “[t]o amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to require the Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide guidance and coordination for mass fatality planning…”

Hmmmm. Homeland Security. FEMA. Sounds like a fun party.

The bill was introduced a week ago, but it took the US Government Printing Office until this morning to actually make the text available to the public.

It turns out that my weeklong wait was for nothing. The bill itself is just a handful of paragraphs that merely reiterates the title… that the cracker jack team over at FEMA should be prepared to respond to mass fatalities in the United States, and to account for religious burial differences.

This is just one of those things that makes the stomach turn: the people who brought us the National Defense Authorization Act (authorizing the detention of US citizens on US soil) now deem it prudent to prepare for mass fatalities on US soil…

Moreover, they’re outsourcing it to one of the most failed government agencies in history.

Project Camelot ~ Jim Traficant – Framed (video)

Kerry Cassidy | June 20 2012

First 5 minutes are a waste of time but the rest is pretty interesting ~G

I met the former U.S. Congressman Jim Traficant at the June Conspiracy Con conference where we were both speaking. His story is fascinating and revealing not only because it demonstrates the role and the power of the Israel lobby in America but because as a Congressman he acted with the courage of his convictions. A rare thing indeed.

Framed, and imprisoned in the U.S. for a crime he did not commit for nearly eight years, he is now a free man and he is talking. This man is a true White Hat and a real American patriot standing up for what is right.
