13 Most Evil U.S. Government Experiments on Humans

Touch Evil 2014The U.S. Government has been caught conducting an insane amount of vile, inhumane and grisly experiments on humans without their consent and often without their knowledge. So in light of recent news of the U.S. infecting Guatemalans with STDs, here are the 13 most evil, for lack of a better word, cases of human-testing as conducted by the United States of America.

Get ready to become one of those conspiracy theory nuts, because after this list, you will never fully trust your government again. Continue reading

Twenty Pounds of Bullshit in a Ten-Pound Bag

grannyIt has been impossible to watch any kind of *news program* today without being bombarded with coverage of the B.S. of last night out of WDC.

From what I have been hearing there was enough fertilizer sprayed out of Barracula’s mouth to fertilize every farmers field in this nation.

While farming fields need fertilizer – it is a fact when too much is applied it kills the crop being fertilized. – Granny

Let me be perfectly clear from the jump: It was a fine speech, one of the best of President Obama’s political career, which makes it automatically one of the best in the State of the Union’s august history. The last fifteen minutes, in particular, were absolutely soaring, not just in rhetoric, but in the delivery as well. The man parked it as deep as it can be parked, like a majestic David Ortiz line drive deep into the bleachers at Fenway, thanks for coming, turn out the lights when you leave. No one does it better than Barack Obama when the bright lights are on.

…and when it was over, my immediate thought was of Steven the Irishman, the self-declared madman from the film Braveheart. Mel Gibson had just given his rousing speech to keep the Scots from fleeing before the battle at Stirling Bridge.

Fine speech,” said Steven. “Now what do we do?

The Trojan Horse of “Free” Community College

“If’n iss FREE – muss be fo’ ME!”

Supporters react as President Barack Obama greets them after delivering remarks on new initiatives to help Americans go to college and get the skills they need to succeed, at Pellissippi State Community College in Knoxville, Tenn., Jan. 9, 2015. Obama proposed making community college tuition-free for millions of students. (Jabin Botsford/The New York Times)

Obama proposed making community college tuition-free for millions of students. (Jabin Botsford/The New York Times)

… Obama’s proposal for “free” community college should excite me, as a community college professor who works daily with those students perched precariously on the outermost edge of higher education – undocumented immigrants, high school drop-outs, homeless teens, former prisoners – all arriving to campus striving for the safety, security and affluence of middle-class American life. And while students hold on tight to the edge of the ivory tower, I’ve seen many fall off despite their best efforts, passion and potential, dragged down and out of the classroom by the gravity of this poverty. And these are just the students that show up to class – all too many can’t even get a fingerhold, as they are so bogged down by just trying to make ends meet that coming to an “open-access” community college isn’t a plausible option.

It wasn’t always this way. In 1960, California’s master plan for higher education – which soon became the model for the country – sought to provide a world-class education for all California students, not just those who could afford it. There were no fees, and all were accepted at some point in the system. For many, community college was the first stop on a journey that would take them to prosperity – financial, intellectual and democratic. And while community college is still accessible for many, the ideal of “open access” has been increasingly blocked: It’s not just the rising fees for students, but cuts that restrict access in invisible ways – fewer course offerings, fewer support services and fewer full-time instructors to help students find their way, and not fall away.

So doesn’t Obama’s proposal harken a return to the golden age of the California master plan? (Read Complete Column)

2015 SOTU: ‘Mission Accomplished — I’m Just Awesome!’

Free ObamaBucks for Everyone!

“I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”Article II, Section 1, Constitution of the United States (1787)

2015-01-21-8706194fFor the last two weeks, my inbox has been inundated with emails priming the pump for Barack Obama’s 2015 State of the Union — a desperate attempt to avoid a repeat of the 2014 SOTU ratings bust with the lowest viewership since the Clinton years. As my colleague Peggy Noonan put it then, “No one’s really listening to [Obama] … a nonstop windup talk machine.”

The White House deluge started with this message from Joe Biden: “Most years, we keep what’s going to be in the President’s State of the Union address a secret until the night of the speech. That’s changing this year. Because the fact is that this Administration isn’t going to wait for anybody when it comes to taking whatever steps we can to help the middle class and keep strengthening our economy. [Blah, Blah, Blah, ad nauseum…]Continue reading

Ross: What Else Can I Say (To A People Who Don’t Care)

ross_unmaskedMoments after being sworn in as the first president of these States United under the new Constitution, George Washington stated, “The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.” I’m going to be blunt, does that mean anything at all to you, or as Andy Dufresne asks the warden in The Shawshank Redemption, “Are you obtuse?” In case you’re not aware, obtuse means slow to understand something.

If I Can Dream – It’s THAT Time of Year Again…

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can’t my dream come true…

JFB_2009_portYesiree Bob and Bobettes – after the Holy-day known as Martin Luther King Day – we shall be “privileged” to watch the U.S. Capital SELL-ebrate another faux Holy-day – the annual State of the Dis-Union address by his Whole-i-ness Barry Soetoro – the Usurper in Chief!

Yassuh – that’s the night that politically situated guests are all invited to listen to another bore-ing (mis-spelling intentional) bunch o’ B.S. from de man ob de Century – B.O. (and man does he stink). We’ll get to see the camera pan himz lobely wife (the ‘chef’ ob de school cafeteria) probably sitting next to the likes of Michael Brown’s parents – or maybe even de self-righteous “Reberend” Al Sharptongue – hell – it might even be the Administration’s new Ambassadors to Cuba – Beyonce and Jay-Z! How come they got to go, when travel to and from Castroland was forbidden?

Hey you Pansy-ass from Chi-town – or Honolulu, or Kenya  – stick that Cubano Delgado where the moon don’t shine – then stuff it in yo’ mouf and light it up!

Hey – maybe we’ll get to see some of those GITMO detainess in the audience – just before they are given an all-expense paid trip back to the land of their training, so that they can ratchet up their activities once more.

There must be peace and understanding sometime
Strong winds of promise that will blow away
All the doubt and fear
If I can dream of a warmer sun
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won’t that sun appear…

Obama the KingOf course, none of this lets the ‘merican peeps off the hook, as we are forced to watch de Supremes – wif-out Diana Ross. The Wimp-pins of the new RepublickRAT Majority, John Boner and Son-of-a-Mitch McConnell, along with their butt-buddies – the Demi-gods like Peelousy, Boxer, Feinstein, Jackson-Lee, and the one-eyed and now deposed Boxing Commissioner from Nevada. Of course there is always the Muslim Caucus (of one?), da Kingfish’s Cabinet of Politically Correct ass-kissers, including the ‘when the hell is going to really retire” Eric Holder, de Black Caucus, the women’s Caucus and it goes on and on and on…

Heaven forbid that a group of Crackers might decide to create a ‘White Caucus… someone might burn down Ferguson, MO all over again.

We’re lost in a cloud
With too much rain
We’re trapped in a world
That’s troubled with pain
But as long as a man
Has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul and fly…

Well – de point of this rant, is that Washington, DeCeit will be full of every form of crook, criminal, Democrat, Republican, race-baiter, liar, cheat, Bankster (but I repeat myself) and pedophile known to mankind. As relates to these characters redeeming their souls – none of them have one. There ain’t a redeeming quality amongst them.

Deep in my heart there’s a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answer gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark, there’s a beckoning candle…

If dreams could come true, by midway through the Emperor’s annual B.S.-fest – the entire Capitol would look like the image below – Oh – and sorry Elvis.

And while I can think, while I can talk
While I can stand, while I can walk
While I can dream, please let my dream
Come true, right now
Let it come true right now!!!!

Gaddy: You Celebrate Yours, I’ll Celebrate Mine

RE_LeeTomorrow is the birthday of one of my heroes; someone it would behoove us all to emulate. His name is Robert Edward Lee. He was born on January 19th, 208 years ago in Stratford Hall, Virginia. Instead of consuming birthday cake in his honor tomorrow, I will instead enjoy some Edwards’ Virginia ham, bacon and sausage.

I will not spend too much good time and space by delving deeply into any large number of negatives of the person for whom a federal holiday (observed tomorrow) was signed into law back in 1983 and was instituted three years later, except to state my belief this man has a holiday in his honor for the exact same reason we have our current resident in the White House; they both have/had strong backgrounds and mentors of the socialist persuasion and whose real goal is/was the polarization of the races in order to further the causes of a stronger, more centralized, socialist government.

Sellin: Everything in this article is a lie – And that’s the truth!

SellinIt is difficult to write satire in a political-media environment that is delusional and corrupt. Satire is a comparative art, where, ultimately, truth is the basis of that comparison. When everything is a lie and reality is absurd, the similes and metaphors of satire lose their impact.

Conservative movement leaders have published a Citizen’s Mandate, which outlines initiatives they want Republicans in Congress to take in order to “stop” Barack Obama’s “fundamental transformation of America,” something they say the American people made clear in the 2014 midterm elections with such decisive GOP victories.

American Sniper Breaks Box Office Records

eastwoodThe Hollywood Reporter calls it a “shocker” that a patriotic movie by one of the best directors working today, about an American hero who kills jihadists, is really, really popular. To me, that sounds like a formula for success, but Hollywood still thinks tender stories about gay males coming of age are what the public demands, along with cartoonish special effects-laden, nine-figure-budget mind candy.

Caruba: NASA Keeps Telling “Warmest” Lies

Polar VortexOn January 16 The New York Times reported the lies NASA keeps telling about global warming with an article titled “2014 Breaks Heat Record, Challenging Global Warming Skeptics.” We have reached the point where neither a famed government agency nor a famed daily newspaper can be believed simply because both are lying to advance the greatest hoax of the modern era.

Driessen: Merchants of Smear

~ Foreword ~
PaulDriessen_2015One of the main strategies – and greatest smears – of the manmade climate cataclysm movement is that Big Oil interests paid skeptical researchers to change their science to fit industry views. Therefore, the smear continues, any scientists who contest the alleged “settled science” about global warming are tainted. They should not be listened to, and their views should be excluded from news stories and classroom presentations about the “climate crisis.” As my article this week … and citizen journalist Russell Cook’s fascinating Merchants of Smear report … makes clear, both this libelous claim and the entire “dangerous manmade climate change” mantra have no basis in actual evidence. In fact, real world measurements, observations and weather events completely contradict computer models and media headlines that predict a planetary disaster.

House and Senate committees should demand and coordinate an open, robust debate on pollution, climate change, and human health and welfare. They should compel EPA, climate modelers and scientists to testify under oath, present their evidence and respond to tough questions. Congress should then block any regulations that are unsupported by a clear preponderance of evidence or, worse, found to be dishonest or fraudulent. ~ Paul

Smith: Free Speech and Muslim Rage

obama-muslim-brotherhoodIn the wake of the deadly terrorist attacks on Charlie Hebdo, the satirical Paris newspaper, and the kosher grocery in Porte de Vincennes (France) between January 7th and January 9th, in which seventeen innocent Parisians were murdered, approximately three million French people, four by some counts, and forty world leaders, without U.S. President Obama anywhere in sight, marched through the streets of Paris to show unity against Islamic terrorism and their support for freedom of expression. For this one day, they did not allow their liberty to be constrained, but the messages emanating from this “Cry for freedom” unity rally are mixed at best. Continue reading

Obama Busted in What May Be the Crime of the Century… Impeach Him NOW

Cartoon - Obama Scandals and CorruptionBREAKING: The CIA’s own report shows that the White House itself had direct involvement in the agency’s spying on the United States Senate.

This is far worse than Watergate … this act of subversion demands immediate impeachment and jail time for any and all involved.

And some of those involved would appear to be among President Barack Obama’s inner circle of most trusted advisers, making it an open question as to how much the president himself knew about this unconstitutional exercise of power by the CIA. Continue reading

Gaddy: Frustration INTENSIFIED

She's Singing...

She’s Singing…

There are several among us who continue to be frustrated at the belief/attempts by many, though well-intentioned, that there is a magic potion that can be applied to our tyrannical government that will suddenly transform said government into a benevolent organization intent only on protecting the Natural Rights of the individual and who will operate only with the “consent of the governed.” We have witnessed several decades of those who suddenly realize the ship of state is dreadfully off course and immediately adopt a do-something-now attitude. Little do they realize that the bucket of liquid they grab in a desperate attempt to douse the fires of despotism may in fact be gasoline. Continue reading

The EPA thinks cow flatulence is a serious problem

The Obama administration’s attack on America’s energy sector is insane. They might as well tell us what to eat. Oh, wait, Michelle Obama is doing that. Or that the Islamic State is not Islamic. Oh, wait, Barack Obama said that.

Or that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is about protecting the environment. It used to be decades ago, but not these days. Continue reading

Gaddy: What Should We Do to Make the World “Safe for Democracy”?

gaddyWith the recent events in France, Sunday morning TV with the exception of NFL playoff coverage was rife with questions on what the so-called “free world” should be doing to prevent future “attacks on freedom”. Of course, Johnny-on-the-spot were our favorite Military/Industrial/Congressional warmongers famously represented by Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the resident **Manchurian Candidate himself, the dishonorable Senator John McCain, pressing for “more” of everything in the way of military action, which for the uninitiated or just plain ignorant is the root cause of the majority of “terrorist” acts on our planet.

Whenever I hear such calls for ever increasing military action, including the “conservative” McCain’s favorite, “more boots on the ground” solution, I suddenly recall a quote from none other than George Carlin himself.

“Once you leave the womb, conservatives don’t care about you until you reach military age. Then you’re just what they’re looking for. Conservatives want live babies so they can raise them to be dead soldiers.”

War Begets War: It’s Not about Islam; It Never Was

Ramzy-BaroudIt is still not about Islam, even if the media and militants attacking western targets say so. Actually, it never was. But it was important for many to conflate politics with religion; partly because it is convenient and self-validating.

First, let’s be clear on some points. Islam has set in motion a system to abolish slavery over 1,200 years before the slave trade reached its peak in the western world.

Freeing the slaves, who were owned by pagan Arab tribes, was a recurring theme in the Koran, always linked to the most basic signs of piety and virtue: Continue reading

Why the Progressive Machine Is Mobilizing for Elizabeth Warren and Ignoring Bernie Sanders

Indian-WarrenIf you want to understand the current state of American politics and why the oligarchy always seems to have an advantage, allow me to make a Civil War comparison: The right is the Confederacy, and the left is the Union. Just as the Confederacy nearly won the Civil War with strategic geniuses like Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee, the left nearly lost the Civil War due to the strategic incompetence of generals like George McClellan and Ambrose Burnside. Even when McClellan had the Confederacy’s battle plans at Antietam, he still failed to win the battle and wasted the lives of thousands of soldiers. The opposite was true of the Confederacy – even when Stonewall Jackson was outnumbered 60,000 to 17,000, his troops still won the Valley Campaign due to his strategic prowess, gaining 46 miles of ground in 48 days.

Terrorism, Immigration and Mass Manipulation

paristerror.jpg.w560h315The threat of terrorism and the theatrics of bloodshed are powerful tools in the psychological warfare that is leading up to a final conflagration. Watching Paris is Burning is a sober spectacular for the mass media brainwashed, but for geopolitical observers in the know, the time proven and trusted strategy of using fear over security breaches works every time. Missing in the scores of all the manipulated “situations” is a full appreciation of the grand view of who really benefits from a high anxiety society that always succumbs into a greater level of a police state.

Framing the latest episode, the Charlie Hebdo assassinations, into a clash of civilizations is a tempting vindication to strike back at a villain that is easy to despise. However, such a simplistic response fails to understand what is really going on. Continue reading

Gaddy: Free Immigration or Invasion (REDUX)

~ Foreword ~
gaddyAlmost 10 years ago, in April of 2005, I went to Southern Arizona to participate in what at the time I believed would be a little noticed event—The Minuteman Project.

A few days into the April, I was approached by the founders of the project to help manage the operation as it continued to grow beyond everyone’s expectations. I accepted the job of managing the line watching for illegals crossing Highway 92 at the base of the Huachuca Mountains. I accepted and managed this phase of the operation through the end of April when the project shut down.

As previously stated, this project exceeded anyone’s wildest expectations; within a few days we had TV personalities such as Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs doing live shows from the border and media from the US and foreign countries appearing in droves. Answering phones and responding to interview requests became a full time job for several in the office in Tombstone almost 24 hours each day. Continue reading

The Oil Price is Not the Price of Oil

OilsWellTITLEWill Rogers said, “Everyone is ignorant; just on different subjects.” What others don’t know can and does hurt you.

Everyone seems ignorant (1) that “The oil price” seen and heard in the media is, in fact, the guess of Wall Street speculators (gamblers) on the New York Mercantile Exchange on the commodity price of a small amount of oil six months in the future; (2) that there is a foreign oil price and a U.S. oil price that is never found in the media but on obscure websites of the Energy Information Administration; (3) that in 2008, the Presidential election year, the foreign oil price decreased a total of $87.34 per barrel during the last half of the year, then increased in 2009; and (4) that foreign oil prices decreased in 2014 from June through October, before the election. For those wanting to confirm the above facts, go to “Where To Find Data” on my website, SelGraham.com. Continue reading

Gaddy: Neoconservative (NC) to Neofascist (NF)

Foreword: Sometimes, to gauge one’s own ability to read the events of the day and their relationship to future actions by our criminal government, it is beneficial to look back at what was written almost 12 years ago for accuracy. For this reason I provide the following for your perusal. Enjoy – or not… (M.G.)

“The idiots are so well indoctrinated that they are saving us time and resources
by attacking those who have discovered our real motives.”

A Conversation Somewhere In The Bowels Of Government

gaddyNC. Wow, can you believe we were able to pull it off?

NF. How’s that? What do you mean?

NC. I mean getting the majority of people in this country to go along with our plans for world domination and securing all world resources for our “organization.”

NF. Piece of cake. There was never a cause for doubt. Our psychological programs have worked to perfection. All we have to do is play on their fears. They will give us all their money and freedoms, just like those stupid people in the large cities who promote their own disarmament, then cower, cringe and fear for their lives when confronted with a mugger.

As long as we wave the flag, mention the word patriotism and spread a few lies about weapons of mass destruction and imminent attacks, we can do whatever we want. Of course, we had to throw in a few hymns and prayers for the right-wing bunch. Hitler proved how effective this tactic could be in bringing the religious element in to support our programs back in the 1930’s.

The idiots are so well indoctrinated that they are saving us time and resources by attacking those who have discovered our real motives. Continue reading

Smith: Hard Votes or Cowards and Patriots?

jimmy stewart_whopperThe American people have been deceived and betrayed once more by the newly elected Republicans, who portrayed themselves as conservatives. These newly elected joined the rank and file establishment Republicans, and on January 6th, they helped reelect a big spending, Republican-in-Name-Only Statist, John Boehner, as Speaker of the House to the 114th Congress, which illustrates that despite a Republican majority, the 114th Congress will not be truly conservative in its character.

Gaddy: “Government as God”

“…to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them…”

“…they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” ~ Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Independence

declaration_new_1In my opinion, the founding document that receives far too little attention is our Declaration of Independence. This document is one of secession from what was viewed as an overreaching, tyrannical government and an act of nullification of the claim of dominion and control over the people of the colonies claimed by King George III and England.

On July 4th of 1776, we had independence and individual rights defined in their purest form. Several of those we refer to as founders believed that to protect these rights, government should be created relying solely on “consent of the governed.” Of course this has morphed into what we have today which dictates, to function in our daily lives we must do so only with “consent from the government.” (How much water is in your toilet?) The perversion is almost totally complete. This, of course, was the desired goal of several others we refer to as founders. Continue reading

Hultberg: Taking Over the Republican Party

Nelson_HultbergOne of the biggest fallacies in politics today is the claim that we, as conservatives and libertarians, can only be effective if we stay loyal to the Republican Party and work to gain control of it by electing more free-market conservatives every election year.

We at AFR believe such thinking to be tragically misguided. To expect the Republican Party to challenge the modern day juggernaut of statism is as foolish as expecting socialist professors to instill Americanism into our youth. It won’t happen anymore than the planets will one day reverse their orbits. This is because the members of the GOP hierarchy who control the party have bought into the collectivist ideologies of Karl Marx and J.M. Keynes. Thus they want the same thing that Democrats want – a society in which “equality of results” replaces “equality of rights.” They merely want it to be established more gradually than do the Democrats.

Conservatives have been trying to take over the GOP for more than 40 years now by electing “conservative legislators” to Congress; yet nothing has changed. The Republican Party continues to give us relentlessly expanding government. It continues to exploit, lie to, and make fools out of conservatives. Continue reading

Driessen: Saving lives in the Middle East

Faith-based groups race against time, winter cold and Islamist butchers to reduce the slaughter

PaulDriessen_2015Yazidi and other Christian communities trace their Syrian and Iraqi roots back nearly 2,000 years. Now they are being systematically exterminated. Not merely driven out. Exterminated – along with Jews, Baha’is and even Muslims insufficiently fundamentalist to suit Islamic State (ISIS) butchers.

While they have not yet attained the scale of Nazi and Communist slaughters, these Islamofascist savages may have surpassed their Twentieth Century predecessors in depravity. They ask terrified children, “Who wants to be beheaded first?” then butcher them in front of the others. They bury people alive. Islamist “soldiers” teach little boys how to slice the heads off every man in “enemy” Syrian tribes. They torture and rape girls and women, before selling them into slavery, prostitution or forced marriage – and demand that surviving women dress “modestly” in black robes, gloves and veils, and be banned from school and public life. They sell their victims’ blood and organs, to finance still more weapons and atrocities. Continue reading

Metaphor For America: Starving 4 Pound Baby Dies In Car While Parents Eat At Golden Corral

buffetWhat should be done to parents that stuffed themselves full of food at a Golden Corral while their starving four pound baby girl died in their car outside? This actually just happened down in Florida, and it is a crime that is shocking the entire nation. Sadly, it is also a perfect metaphor for what is happening to the country as a whole. We have become an exceedingly selfish and self-centered society that seems to care very little that we are literally destroying the future of America. We are stealing trillions of dollars from future generations and destroying what was once the greatest economy in the history of the world just to make ourselves a little bit more comfortable in the present.
