Catherine Austin Fitts - Gregg Hunter: Awesome video

I watched this awesome interview by Greg Hunter of Catherine Austin Fitts that talks about the banking system and how the government system is dependent on it, some comparison to nazi-germany, how to fix it (because the government is not capable to fix it) and alot more. The video is being deleted all over youtube, 3 out of 4 have been deleted. This is the last one I have found that isn't deleted.

"Kill switch" to be standard on U.S. cell phones in 2015

Under the guise of protecting cell phone owners from theft or loss of their phones, a new standard will be mandatory in phones manufactured after July 2015.

It will require cell phones to have a "kill switch" meaning any phone can be remotely shut down and all data wiped clean from it.

All well and good in case your phone is lost or stolen I guess, BUT...isn't this convenient for a government which might want to curtail communication and interaction among citizens?

Oh paranoid me...but I'm just sayin'...

Here's the story:

Does Cliven Bundy Have Something Called “Prescriptive Rights” (Ben Swann)

By Ben Swann.

In this ongoing story surrounding cattle rancher Cliven Bundy, there are a series of questions media has ignored. For instance, in the 20 years Bundy hasn’t been paying his fees, why hasn’t he been taken to court? Why this year, spend nearly $1,000,000 of taxpayer money to round up 400 cattle that ultimately have to be returned? Why didn’t the BLM just place a lien on the cattle rather than attempting to take them by force and then auction them off? The Bureau of Land Management has suffered a huge black eye this week because of their response to the Bundy situation. Perhaps though, there is a reason the BLM chose force over the courts.

Among the questions Devlin asked of the BLM, “Is it possible that this guy (Cliven Bundy) has prescriptive rights?” The response from top officials at the BLM, “We are worried that he might and he might use that defense.”

So what exactly are prescriptive rights? Prescriptive right to property is an easement that gives some one the right to use land owned by someone else for a particular purpose. An example is using a path through Party A’s land to get to your land, a prescriptive easement is allowed which gives the user the right to get to his land through A’s property.

Ron Paul Should Follow the Example of Clive Bundy

I just read the email from Ron Paul regarding the IRS demand on the Campaign for Liberty to produce donor information and pay a fine and I gotta say I was not impressed. In fact I was disappointed and offended that he would suggest that they might not have any choice but to pay the fine and turn over the donor info.

Clive Bundy wouldn't turn it over. He wouldn't worry about court orders. He would force their hand. What are they going to do? Put Ron in jail? Would we let that happen? Of course not.

Is there anyone in our movement who would suggest that C4L turn over the info?

Fellow rancher’s viral letter explains so much about why ranchers support ‘hero’ Bundy.

"There have been a lot of people criticizing Clive Bundy because he did not pay his grazing fees for 20 years. The public is also probably wondering why so many other cowboys are supporting Mr. Bundy even though they paid their fees and Clive did not.

The BLM Impoundment Plan, Who Prepared It, and Their Scrubbed Contact Information

After digging around the BLM Nevada website [before it went down!], I stumbled across a document titled:

Environmental Assessment - Gold Butte, Mormon Mesa, and Bunkerville Flats Temporary Land Closure, Placement of Temporary Corrals, and Impoundment of Trespass Cattle
(82 pgs - 27MB)

Here are few sections from that document and a list of the people who prepared it. Below, you can see that their contact info was scrubbed from BLM's website.

Click on the link that says, Federal Register Notice for Temporary Closure on BLM Managed Public Lands

The Department of the Interior is headed by the Secretary of the Interior, Sally Jewel.

This scandal appears to be connected to one of President Obama's cabinet members!

FedGov is a mooch, not Bundy

A lot of comments online are centering around Bundy being some kind of deadbeat rancher because he isn't paying BLM fees. They say he owes the federal government money. He doesn't have a contract with the BLM and this isn't a tax obligation. If he isn't receiving land management services from the BLM, he should not feel an obligation to pay. If BLM believes they are providing a service, then they should collect the same way any business would such as liens, etc. This is all sort of a side point though.

Harry Reid reaped $1.1 million from sale of land he didn't own

WASHINGTON — Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid collected a $1.1 million windfall on a Las Vegas land sale even though he hadn't personally owned the property for three years, property deeds show.

In the process, Reid did not disclose to Congress an earlier sale in which he transferred his land to a company created by a friend and took a financial stake in that company, according to records and interviews.

Some More Questions on the Bundy Fiasco (Updated w/footnotes)

There's an aspect of this Bundy story that I haven't seen mentioned.

(And please understand - I'm making no accusations here, just asking questions.)

It's been reported elsewhere that the BLM Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone report was the initiative leading to the BLM aggression against Bundy. That report was the outcome of the process used to measure the impact of (and mandate a strategy for) "compensating for the unavoidable (environmental and other) impacts that are expected from the development of the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone".(1)

It seems that the poor desert tortoise, as well as plant species such as the "rosy two-toned penstemon, (also known as pinto beardtongue)", were discovered by BLM to be so threatened by the solar plant, (even after mandated protections would be implemented on the land occupied by the solar plant), that land use restrictions had to be placed on adjacent lands, so as to "mitigate" the environmental destruction caused by the solar plant.

Well if you slog through that report, and especially the accompanying FAQ, you will learn that the "Solar Regional Mitigation Planning" (SRMP) process that resulted in this report is a new process, a pilot process actually, that just coincidentally happened to be tried for the first time on this project. Hmmm. (2)

Author, Investigative Journalist and Activist Michael Ruppert died Sunday night of a self inflicted gunshot wound. He was found sometime after his radio show Sunday night.

What is the single most expensive ingredient in beer? Guess.

The Beer Institute points out that “taxes are the single most expensive ingredient in beer, costing more than labor and raw materials combined.” They cite an economic analysis that found “if all the taxes levied on the production, distribution, and retailing of beer are added up, they amount to more than 40% of the retail price” (note that this may include general sales tax and federal beer taxes, which are not included in the estimates displayed on the map). Last year, we did a podcast with Lester Jones, Chief Economist at the Beer Institute on tax treatment of beer, which is worth a listen.

Peter King: Rand Paul Isn't ‘Capable’ of Having ‘an Intelligent Debate’


http://youtu.be/kAewcpx8fXI

In the latest round of the Peter King–Rand Paul squabble, the New York congressman doubted the Kentucky senator’s interest, or even ability, to have a reasonable debate on the issue of national security.

On Wednesday’s Morning Joe, King accused Paul of “expedience paranoia” by taking fears of drones and the National Security Agency to a “hysterical level.”
