I have decided to take a hiatus from truth based websites for a while. I am really frustrated with a lot of things, and I need a break. I will be around for maintaining my websites, but that's about it. I hope everyone has a happy holiday.
Capitol Hill (CNSNews.com) – While Congress has voted to raise the national debt ceiling to $12.4 trillion, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) has reported that the federal government’s unfunded liabilities – the costs of promised benefits through Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and several other programs – total $62.9 trillion in today’s dollars.

I thought it might – just might – be a parody, a spoof, a weak attempt at irony. But no, it turns out that Nick Gillespie, the former editor of Reason magazine, and now chief honcho over at something called "ReasonTV," is absolutely and incredibly serious about his contention that We Never Had It So Good. And why, pray tell, are we supposedly so blessed? Well, it seems that nerdy geeky-looking white kids now have some really really cool computer games to play,… Continue

Neither the form of Socialism in South America or the form of Democracy here in North America are pure forms of either method of governing people. Our Democratic Republic steeped in Capitalism is nothing more than Fascism disguised as freedom to provide the illusion of free will when in reality we're all slaves to the system.
Evo Morales and Hugo Chavez are reinventing the wheel, providing more freedom for their respective people and becoming a threat to Washington at the same time.… Continue

Continuing the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq will more than wipe out any reduction in carbon from the government's proposed climate measures ...

(NaturalNews) All of a sudden, H1N1 vaccines are available all across America. Walgreens and other pharmacies are pushing the vaccines as if there were an "everything must go" liquidation sale under way. Hurry, get your swine flu vaccine today before everybody figures out they're useless!
The marketability of vaccines has a strict time limit. They're only in demand during the fear phase of a pandemic, and that fear phase has long since faded for H1N1. Virtually everyone who wants an… Continue
There is no one more qualified than Reg Keys -- whose son Tom was killed in Iraq -- to comment on Tony Blair's admission to the BBC that, if he hadn't used the non-existent weapons of mass destruction to justify a war crime, he would have found another "argument" -- that is, another lie.
When the totality of our societies ills are viewed together, as they are here, the picture becomes quite clear. A happy America? A content society?
Anything but. When everything below is considered we are living lives of what's termed 'quiet desperation,' almost all of us. We don't even recognize, even those of us that are active here on 12.160Mhz, that we have learned helplessness. We just can't see it. And when it's so obviously pointed out, we refuse to believe… Continue
LAHORE: Of the 60 cross-border predator strikes carried out by the Afghanistan-based American drones in Pakistan between January 14, 2006 and April 8, 2009, only 10 were able to hit their actual targets, killing 14 wanted al-Qaeda leaders, besides perishing 687 innocent Pakistani… Continue
"It has now become a serious nescessity to better the breed of the human race. The average citizen is too base for the everyday work of modern civilization." --Sir Francis Galton
One of my major lines of research has been the scientific control and manipulation of human beings, and the Eugenics movement is one of the most perfect examples I've found. The overlap between good intentions and nightmare consequences is highly instructive.… Continue

A wave of strikes culminating on Thursdays pan-worker mobilisation has been the response to the scaremongering of the government amidst the worsening economic crisis that threatens Greece with bankruptcy.
After the week of riots came the week of strikes: the multifold strikes that are taking place since Tuesday 15 December and peaked on Thursday 17 with the pan-workers strike called by PAME, the Communist Party Union Front, as wells a dozens of… Continue
