The Last Honest Politician


Dennis Kucinich - an Island in a Sea of Corruption


In America, we choose our leaders from among those who have climbed the political ladder by pleasing those who control the purse strings. By the time an individual has reached the level of having been nominated by his party for public office, he/she has been bought and paid for. The recent healthcare reform fiasco is a perfect example. "Blue Dog" Democrats unabashedly lent their support to the insurance and pharmaceutical industries at the expense of the American people. Do they care? Not a chance.


One man has stood out the past several years as a man of principle and integrity. Small in stature, he does not present the image of a politician, but Dennis Kucinich stands head and shoulders above the rest for integrity. Listen to his recent one-minute speech before Congress. If only Americans had the intelligence and integrity of this man.





For contrast, here is a prime example of the arrogance of those who accept millions of dollars from industries whose corrupt practices they perpetuate with their bought-and-paid-for votes. Witness a drunk Senator Max Baucus addressing Congress on healthcare:

Vitamin D a Breakthrough in Cancer Prevention






Serious scientific study has been conducted on Vitamin D with startling results.  It turns out not to be a vitamin at all, but a hormone absolutely essential to health and immunity to disease. And cancer prevention is only the tip of the iceberg.   Vitamin D has a major positive impact onreducing breast and colon cancer. 

You won't hear about this from the news media (because no one's buying ads) and you won't
hear about it from the government (because 
no one is bribing them.)  Watch the video:

Strong Evidence of Reincarnation




For centuries, man has argued about the existence of reincarnation. Early references to reincarnation in the New Testament were deleted in the 4th century by Emperor Constantine when Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire. Did the emperor feel that the concept of reincarnation was threatening to the stability of the empire? Citizens who believed that they would have another chance to live might be less obedient and law abiding than those who believed in a single Judgment Day for all?


In the 6th century, in the year 553 A. D., the 2nd Council of Constantinople officially declared reincarnation a heresy and the doctrine of reincarnation was officially banished by the Christian Church.


There is actually a considerable amount of evidence for reincarnation remaining in the Bible People are unaware that there are definite references in the New Testament that unequivocally imply reincarnation exists. You can find quite a few references supporting the idea that after people die they will come back to this Earth if they are not ready to move on permanently to the heavenly realms.


Here is a present day case that gives strong support to the existence of reincarnation. Watch this incredible video of Bruce and Andrea Leininger on the incredible true story of their son, James, as told in the NY Times bestselling book SOUL SURVIVOR: The Reincarnation of a World War II Fighter Pilot.

The Great Orange Juice Scam

I love orange juice. I've been drinking it daily most of my life. But is it "fresh" and "pure"? I hope so because I drink "Simply Orange".

One of the great scams of the industrial food cartel is the so-called "fresh" orange juice sold in supermarkets. This one particularly galls me because for years when I was dirt poor and had very few food choices, I thought I was doing a healthy thing by buying "fresh" orange juice.

Alissa Hamiliton has written a new book on the subject called "Squeezed: What You Don't Know About Orange Juice."

Some reality checks:

1. There is more Vitamin C in a single orange than in a full glass of industrial orange juice

2. Truly fresh orange juice only last a few days. It if last for weeks (or months), it's an industrial product.

3. Until the Florida orange growers launched a campaign in the early 20th century to deal with their surplus crop, the only people who drank orange juice were Floridians who had a tree in their backyard. There is nothing particularly healthy or natural about drinking orange juice - and the industrial product is a total waste of money.

America: a Prison Nation

Some people are concerned about a network of internment camps and private prisons that appears to being built at great expense around the nation. What's more shocking is that right now the US has more people behind bars than any country on earth including Russia and China. It's as American as apple pie.

In fact, one of of every four human beings on earth who is imprisoned is in a US facility. Look it up. That's a horror show taking place right now and it barely merits comment.

Amazingly, a vast network of legalized slave labor based on imprisoning blacks for petty and made up crimes existed in broad daylight in the South up until 1945, the reality of which is only just now coming to light.

What is up with UFO's?

More than half of American citizens believe UFO's are real and that there are visitors from outer space. Recent activity has done nothing to dispel that belief. Recent footage of a pyramid hovering over the Red Square in Moscow has gone viral. The footage was shot from a passing car. While some say it is a UFO, skeptics dismiss the ufo theory and say that if the images were for real, the public would have reported sightings to police - who are making no comment. Another clip filmed during daylight shows a fuzzy grey object on the skyline near Red Square.

This is hot on the heels of the strange spiral blue lights in Norway which authorities claim was simpply a missile test gone wrong. We had previously reported on a strange cloud formation above Russia.





LET'S EXAMINE THE FACTS:

In 1973, Rod Serling gave a sound summary of the evidence supporting UFO interaction with Earth. This 10-minute video is very interesting and informative and gives a reasoned approach to the subject:





WHAT DO NASA ASTRONAUTS SAY ABOUT UFO's?

We have gathered three videos from three former astronauts who are well known and well respected -- Buzz Aldrin, Gordon Cooper, and Dr. Edgar Mitchell. Here is what they have to say about UFO's:

BUZZ ALDRIN

Buzz Aldrin talks about the 'UFO' which the Apollo 11 crew saw on their way to the moon.




DR. EDGAR MITCHELL

Lee Patrick Hanks of New World Integrations and the new Tara-13 Network interviews Edgar Mitchell, Ph.D. (Apollo 14 astronaut and founder of the Institute of Noetic Science) at the 2009 X-Conference in Washington, D.C. Dr. Edgar Mitchell confirms that ETs are in fact visiting Earth.






GORDON COOPER

Mercury 9 and Gemini 5 astronaut Gordon Cooper talks about his UFO sightings and experiences.

Al Franken Shuts Up Joe Lieberman

Former comedian Senator Al Franken of Minnesota made Democrats across America smile when he shut down shut down a speech by the ever-disgusting Senator Joe Lieberman on the Senate floor Thursday, refusing to give the Connecticut independent extra time to finish a statement on health care reform.  Lieberman has been instrumental in forcing Democrats to back down on both the public option and an expansion of Medicare.  Senator John McCain voiced his support for Lieberman which begs the question, "Why are these two relics still around?"

"Produce the Note" a Headache for Lenders



Recently we have run articles on the Great American Mortgage Scam and how lenders have used very questionable and perhaps illegal techniques to implement their securitization scam and cheat borrowers. The articles can be found in the right hand column under archives.

The “Produce the Note” strategy is giving hope to a Pennsylvania homeowner facing foreclosure. Mark Strohecker, of Ellwood City, Pennsylvania, was successful in getting a judge to stop the foreclosure of his home, after filing a “produce the note” request with the court.

The 42-year-old former firefighter and father of two faced the Sheriff’s Sale of his home on March 11th. Two weeks earlier, he printed the document template for a “Produce the Note” request from the CWN website, filled it out, and filed it in Lawrence County Court. At a hearing the day before the scheduled Sheriff’s Sale, Honorable Judge J. Craig Cox, granted Strohecker a motion to stay the Sheriff’s Sale.

Strohecker says he was so overwhelmed by the Judge’s decision he broke down in tears.

...and here is another:

A State Supreme Court Judge in Brooklyn, New York is on a mission to force mortgage companies to stop foreclosing on homeowners unfairly. Judge Arthur Schack has become a friend to the little guy. Instead of rubber stamping and waving foreclosure cases through his court, he is standing up to mortgage companies who try to foreclose on homeowners without proper standing or proof.

He’s not a pushover, but is diligent about enforcing the law. As a result, he’s tossed out 46 of the 102 foreclosure motions that have come before him in the last two years.

The banks and lenders are in trouble. Keep up the good work, folks.
