It was only a matter of time before the nation’s skyrocketing unemployment translated into new recruits for the most powerful military force in the world.
With the official US unemployment rate at 10 percent and climbing (that’s more than 15 million people struggling to put food on the table) and nearly double that number if you include part-time wage-earners who need full-time jobs, never mind all of those ‘discouraged workers,’ it’s little wonder that so many of the nation’s… Continue

Throughout the world, on any given day, a man, woman or child is likely to be displaced, tortured, killed or "disappeared", at the hands of the United States government or armed political groups sponsored by the United States government.
Years upon years of US and global history document very clearly that the CIA has been directly responsible for the murder of 100s of 1000s of innocent men, women and children across the globe in almost every country on the planet while attempting to… Continue

I've thought this over long and hard.
We're all here on 12.160Mhz for the same reasons. We despise the plans that the New World Order has in store for all of us and each and every one of us spends hours upon hours researching this subject and we all spend an equal amount of time pondering the same question, "what can I do?"
The answer is quite simple, really.
We do have the power but we generally fail to see where that power lies and we also fail to see exactly… Continue

The Footprint Of Freedom is the paw print of death.
In order to convert the sleepy, Indian Ocean island of Diego Garcia into a dominating military base, the U.S. forcibly transported its 2,000 Chagossian inhabitants into exile and gassed their dogs.
By banning journalists from the area, the U.S. Navy was able to perpetrate this with virtually no press coverage, says David Vine, an assistant professor of anthropology at American University and author of “Island of Shame:… Continue

Just a short while ago, Matthew Hoh, a decorated US Marine serving in Iraq who became a chief civilian foreign service diplomat in Afghanistan has RESIGNED in protest of the war there.
He forwarded his resignation to Obama in a 4 page letter in which he asked people in every state to write and call their Congressmen and representatives to end the war in Afghanistan and bring our troops home.
He called the war 'worthless' and went on to say we are supporting a regime of… Continue

Lance Corporal Joe Glenton is refusing an order from his regimental commander that he returns to barracks and does not attend the Stop the War Bring the Troops Home demonstration on Saturday 24 October.

OK, this is just too fucking obvious.
10 American soldiers were killed when their helicopter was shot down two days ago.
4 American soldiers were killed when two helicopters crashed into one another yesterday.
3 American civilians were found today in a plane that crashed two weeks ago.
8 American soldiers were killed in two separate ambushes today.
It's only about 2 pm here, it's still early.
General McChrystal asked for 40,000 more troops for… Continue

Are made of the same cloth as our forefathers who started this country.
They are, by kidnapping ships and yachts, protesting the international fisherman that have depleted their waters of the fish they survive on and they are protesting the international dumping of nuclear, medical and industrial waste illegally dumped on their shores which is slowly poisoning the people that rely on the waters to survive.
I say, more power to them.

All of us here on 12.160Mhz are sort of pre-programmed to recognize political, banking, military and corporate scams that are sometimes even of global proportions. It's in our nature, right?
The next one and perhaps the largest one ever hasn't even begun, but it's brewing.
Unemployment, the unemployment figure provided by our political machine, is determined by calculating the number of people actually collecting unemployment compensation. Right… Continue

Or a stooge.
While the Swine Flu has been declared a national emergency, these items have not:
Lack of health care
Adulterated food - you know, Bisphenol-A, Aspartame, BHT, Nitrates, etc.
Pollution - you know, the air we breath and the water we drink
Education - you know, the thousands of kids that are failing across the country
And a hundred other things that would and could be solved through declaring a… Continue

WASHINGTON — President Obama has declared the swine flu outbreak a national emergency, allowing hospitals and local governments to speedily set up alternate sites and procedures if needed to handle any surge of patients, the White House said on Saturday.
The declaration came when long lines formed around the country for the swine flu vaccine, with distribution that has not met demand.
Flu activity — virtually all of it the swine flu — is now widespread in 46 states, a… Continue

The argument in the United States regarding health care reform has reached preposterous proportions and the elements of the argument are just plain wrong.
The statistics bandied about extolling the disaster facing millions of Americans because they lack health care INSURANCE make for a comical rationalization and providing INSURANCE for those millions of Americans seems to vindicate the status quo. It does not.
The argument is precisely what the elite want the argument to… Continue

President Obama has brazenly violated Article 1 Section 9 of the US Constitution by seating himself at the head of United Nations' Security Council, thus becoming the first US president to chair the world body.
A scientific dictatorship is in its final stages of completion, and laws protecting basic human rights are being abolished worldwide; an iron curtain of high-tech tyranny is now descending over the planet.
A worldwide regime controlled by an unelected corporate… Continue

Among those associated with the group are Michael Goldfarb, Aaron Harison, and Justin Germany.

In e-mails released by the university and in news reports since May, it has become clear that University of Illinois Chancellor Richard Herman played a key role in what the university called its Category One List — a list of students with political connections whose applications for places at the flagship Urbana-Champaign campus were closely tracked. Some of those applicants were admitted over more qualified students, students that weren't politically connected.
In some e-mails,… Continue

AS THE BIG BANKS POST RECORD PROFITS AND PAY OUT OBSCENE BONUSES,
WHAT SHOULD WE THE PEOPLE DO: STAND UP OR ROLL OVER?
On February 1, 1960, four students sat down at a lunch counter at
the former Woolworth’s store in Greensboro North Carolina.
4 students! Just four!
They were protesting racial segregation. They were denied
service, harassed and arrested.
Greensboro was and still is a backwater, yet… Continue

The Militarization of America's Youth
US Army Experience Center (AEC): Training Kids to Kill
“This is so cool! This is so cool!” a thirteen-year-old boy repeated as he squeezed rounds from a real M-16, picking off “enemy combatants” in a video game while perched atop a real Army Humvee. “I just came to the mall to skateboard but everyone said this was pretty cool. I just had to try it and it’s great!”
The person reporting on this youthful enthusiasm was Pat Elder, who… Continue
