Matthew 25:40

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 7 1-6


1. Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4. Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5. Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
6. Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Woody Guthrie Has Something to Say to Our Modern Politicians and Their Minions

Woody died some time ago, which shows that what we percieve as a new problem, isn't. It isn't new at all, there have always been those people that think, no believe, that they are the only ones that know what's best for the rest of us. They don't care if they have to use the police, the army, paid goons, prisions, or outright murder, although they always have more attractive names for it, but one way or the other they're going to make those of us too stupid to know what's best for us, stay in line.  Here's the video of Woody Guthrie...

Cops Don't Think We (Their Employers) Should Video Them Doing (Or Misdoing) Their Jobs

Man faces life in prison for filming cops

When cops in Illinois started inspecting Michael Allison’s vehicles parked on his mom’s property, he turned on his camera while he went to see what the hubbub was about.




When cops in Illinois started inspecting Michael Allison’s vehicles parked on his mom’s property, he turned on his camera while he went to see what the hubbub was about. That didn’t put that happy of a face on the police officer, and now Allison is facing 75 years in prison for hitting “record.”
Authorities have charged Allison, 42, with five counts of eavesdropping, each with a maximum of 15 years in prison. He is looking at spending the rest of his life behind bars because the state is applying an archaic law to modern technology to keep citizens from snooping around cops.
Only days after Allison was charged, the US 1st Circuit Court of Appeals stated that recording police in public was guaranteed through the First Amendment. Cops in Illinois, however, aren’t agreeing.
“Just because they can get a jury to convict somebody doesn’t mean that the statute was applicable,” said radio host Alex Jones to RT. He says that calling Allison’s actions illegal is a “giant hoax” and those authorities pegging the case as a wiretapping issue has it all wrong. Jones said that being in public removes all perception of privacy, and for that very reason cops can have cameras in their own squad cars.
Jones added to RT that it is the “scariest thing I’ve seen in a long time that the police would knowingly try to put this guy in prison for life for simply videotaping” them in public.
Allison has so far refused a plea deal and is seeking counsel from the American Civil Liberties Union. “If we don’t fight for our freedoms here at home we’re all going to lose them,” he said to Gather.com.
Should he be convicted of his crimes, Allison will be serving the same punishment as murderers and rapists.

Yet Another Innocent American Beaten and Arrested for Legally Filming Police    

Link to endthelie article

By Madison Ruppert
Editor of End the Lie
The victim of this brutal assault, Mitchell Crooks
Earlier this month, a very similar event occurred, albeit a much less brutal one in which an American citizen was illegally arrested for taking advantage of their legal right to film a public officer on a public street from their own property. Before we get in to this most recent event, I must admit (as the victim himself does) that he should not have said “nope” when the officer asked, “Do you live here?”. It seems as though the officer used that as justification for the attack on the victim, Mitchell Crooks.
In the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the actual video of the event has been posted along with a rough transcript which I will replicate here:
The words are friendly enough, but the tone is tense:
“Can I help you, sir?” Colling asks from his patrol car after parking it in front of Crooks’ driveway and shining the spotlight on Crooks.
“Nope. Just observing,” Crooks responds, fixing his camera on the officer.
Crooks had for an hour been recording the scene across the street from his home in the 1700 block of Commanche Circle, near East Desert Inn Road and South Maryland Parkway, where officers had several young burglary suspects handcuffed and sitting on the curb.
As Las Vegas crimes go, the activity was fairly boring. But Crooks wanted to try out his new camera, and he figured his neighbors would like to see the suspects’ faces.
When Colling loaded suspects into the back of his car and drove in a circle through the cul-de-sac, Crooks said he thought police were leaving. Then the officer stopped his car.
“Do you live here?” Colling asks.
“Nope,” Crooks says.
Colling steps out of his patrol car.
Crooks said he now regrets not telling the officer that he was in fact standing in his own driveway. His realizes his response seemed cheeky, but he said the officer made him nervous.
Colling walks toward Crooks, his left hand raised.
“Turn that off for me,” Colling orders.
“Why do I have to turn it off?” Crooks responds. “I’m perfectly within my legal rights to be able to do this.”
The officer repeats the command several times; each time Crooks reiterates his right to film.
“You don’t live here,” Colling says, now close to Crooks.
“I do live here!”
“You don’t live here, dude.”
“I just said I live here!”
As Crooks backs away, Colling grabs him by the shoulder and throws him down. On the ground, Crooks grabs the camera and turns it toward his face.
Colling’s leg then enters the video frame. Crooks says he believes that was the kick that broke his nose.
The video doesn’t show it, but it the camera records Crook screaming. He said that’s when Colling was punching his face.
“Shut up!” Colling yells. “Stop resisting!”
It is pretty obvious that this was nothing short of excessive force. Crooks was on the ground and handcuffed, thus effectively eliminating any potential threat Crooks might have presented. In addition to that fact, Crooks never goaded, insulted or threatened the officer in any way. There is absolutely no justification for the treatment this innocent man received. This shows a disturbing trend sweeping through the United States law enforcement community: the fallacious notion held by police officers that we (as American citizens) do not have a right to film public servants on public property, even though we pay their wages. This is turning down an ugly, dark road into a complete police state in which people cannot even film public officers performing their public duties in public. Does it get any more ludicrous than that?
To most Americans watching this film, Crooks might not even seem like he was getting abused because we have been so desensitized to violence, especially at the hands of so-called “peace” officers. The most disturbing part of the entire ordeal is that Crooks clearly requests medical assistance due to the barbarous beating handed to him by Derek Colling, the police officer. When he requests to be medically treated the following ensues,
Crooks asks for paramedics. Colling tells him to shut up and follow orders.
“If you fight again, dude… Hey, if you (expletive) fight again, dude, you’re in a world of hurt. You hear me?
“You’re not in charge here, buddy. You hear me?”
Colling mocks Crooks’ labored breathing.
“Oh yeah, buddy. Hey, when you don’t do what I ask you to do, then you’re in a world of hurt. Then you’re in a world of hurt. Aren’t ya? Huh?”
Crooks was later diagnosed with a deviated septum and a chest wall injury. Crooks believes his ribs were broken, but never got X-rays that could prove it.


Sadistic control freak sociopath responsible for beating an innocent American citizen, officer Colling
Clearly Colling is a sadistic narcissist who should be locked up himself. If we allow savage goons like Colling to walk the streets, how are we supposed to feel safe? We should respect, trust, and like our local law enforcement, not fear and despise them. However, it makes it a little hard for people to trust law enforcement officers when they commit brutal acts of violence and seem to enjoy it. When Colling said “Aren’t ya? Huh?” I lost it. The fact that this clearly demented sadist ever passed the psychological examination prior to being sworn in as a police officer tells me we need to radically restructure the way in which we evaluate potential officers. Do sadistic sociopaths get drawn into law enforcement or does law enforcement turn sane individuals into sociopathic sadists? If it is the latter, we have a lot more at issue than just the reformation of psychological testing, we must re-examine the entire paradigm in which police officers operate, the paradigm in which they are taught to assume you are guilty and a possible threat right off the bat.
This is not the first incident in which Colling has been involved, in fact he has been directly responsible for two on-duty shootings, all of which were declared justified. If this doesn’t point out the massive flaws in our legal and law enforcement systems, I do not know what does. LVJR writes,
Colling has been involved in two fatal shootings in his 5 1/2 years as a Las Vegas police officer. In 2006, he and four other officers shot Shawn Jacob Collins after the 43-year-old man pulled a gun at an east valley gas station.
In 2009, he confronted a mentally ill 15-year-old Tanner Chamberlain, who was holding a knife in front of his mother and waving it in the direction of officers. Colling shot him in the head.
Both shootings were ruled justified by Clark County coroner’s juries.
How are we allowing clearly sadistic individuals with a history of shootings and the murder of a mentally incompetent 15-year-old to not only continue to carry a loaded fire-arm in public but in addition, we give him license to use it whenever he feels necessary? If Colling is let off for this incident, just one event proving his complete sociopathic insanity, there should be a serious backlash from the people of Las Vegas. I would not feel comfortable having a psychopathic murderer loose with a badge in my neighborhood.
If police officers operated within the “innocent until proven guilty” framework, events like this would never happen. The officer would have nicely talked to Crooks, found out what he was doing and why and requested to see his ID to verify where he lived. All of this could occur in a calm situation in which no handcuffs, physical violence, or anything of the sort is necessary. Police officers seem to be blind to the fact that violence begets more violence and that the aggressive approach police officers employ on those they are sworn to serve does nothing other than make us trust them less and be more weary of them. I am happy to say that I have never had any physical altercations with a police officer in any form here in Los Angeles, although I cannot say the same about being hassled for literally no reason. I have (along with most people in Los Angeles, probably) been illegally detained by police officers with no probable cause and forced to sit on a curb on a busy street for a long period of time. Of course I have never been charged or even arrested for any crime, but that doesn’t stop LAPD from handcuffing me as tightly as possible and treating me like I’m a felon even though I have never received so much as a speeding ticket in my entire life.
This approach can be witnessed in airports now with TSA as well. The cancerous spread of this kind of behavior and the horrific actions that occur because of it is a great danger to America and our freedoms. When individuals with a badge are told to not trust anyone and to expect citizens to be dangerous and aggressive, a new paradigm is formed in which it is cops versus citizens. This is just wrong and serves to do nothing more than continue the metamorphosis of America into a total police state. We must take steps to make police officers and anyone else with a badge aware that they are here to protect us, not harass, threaten or scare us. I wish I felt comfortable walking up to any police officer and striking up a conversation, but nowadays I have a legitimate concern that the police officer could detain me claiming I was “obstructing his duties” or if I was highly unlucky, I might just get beaten to a pulp by some psychopath with a badge. These days there is no way to know.

Terrified Woman From Another Universe Wakes Up Here????

Found this on another site, the link is below that'll take you to the original article. I found it very interesting in that it lays out the posibility of inter-universe or inter-timeline travel is not only possible but actually happens. Or maybe these people just wandered into the Twilight Zone? Take a look for yourselves:

Terrified Woman From Another Universe Wakes Up Here

Monday, January 02, 2012 6:26   By Terrence Aym (Reporter)

Link to Original Article


What would you do if you found yourself in a strange bed, your workplace had changed, and you discovered your lover no longer existed? A woman named Lerina García claims this is exactly what's happened to her. Could you be next…?



Lerina discovered she was in another universe: ours


What started as an ordinary day—waking in bed one morning—evolved into a series of fearful shocks and haunting horror for a desperate woman lost in an alien world: our world.


As Lerina García left her bed she noticed the sheets and bedclothes were strange. She didn't recognize them. Still shaking off the last vestiges of sleep, however, she simply shrugged away the eerie discovery and began her morning routine.
Everything most precious to her was gone
But García would soon learn that once she'd left that slightly alien bed she entered another reality. Her life, her past—everything most precious to her—was gone.
As she went through the routines of her first day in another universe she noticed small incongruities: things out of place, items missing or items she hadn't purchased.
As she later wrote on the Internet seeking someone to offer an explanation for her nightmarish dilemma and maybe offering help: "One day I woke up and found that everything was different—nothing spectacular or having to do with time travel and such things. I simply woke up in the same year and day on which I went to bed, but many things were different. They were small things, but sufficiently important to know that there was a point at which everything was different."
Lerina's writings on the Internet relating her story are recounted in the Spanish language site revistadigitalavalon. The English translation is here.
Not everything was small. Although her car seemed the same and she still worked at the same company she had for 20 years, in the same building, she was shocked to learn her department no longer listed her. Her office was now in another department in a completely different part of the building.
As the level of strangeness escalated, she dealt with her hesitancy and surprise by telling co-workers she wasn't feeling well. She shares her first day on an alien Earth:
“Four months ago I awoke on a normal morning. I was in my rented home where I’d been living for seven years. Everything was the same, except that my bed linen was different, and I paid no attention at the time.
"So I went to work in my car, which was parked where I’d always parked, and it was the same office I’d worked in for the last 20 years. But when I got to my department, it wasn’t my department. It has names on the door and mine wasn’t on it. I thought I was on the wrong floor, but no, it was my own floor. I went over to the office’s wireless section and looked myself up. I still worked there, but in another department, reporting to a superior I didn’t even know.
"So I went to the department indicated in the directory, said I was feeling ill, and left. All the contents of my handbag were the same: my credit cards, my ID, everything, but I didn’t recall having changed departments at any time.
"I went to the doctor and underwent drug and alcohol testing…all clean.
"I returned to work the next day and was able to make my way by asking questions and saying that I wasn’t feeling well."


Lover disappears, old beau remains

“I’ve been separated from my partner of seven years for some six months. We broke up and I started a relationship with a fellow from my neighborhood. I know him perfectly well, having been with him for four months. I know his name, surname, address, where he works, his son from another relationship, and where he studies.
"Well, that fellow no longer exists. He appeared to have existed before my 'jump' but there is no trace of him now.
"I’ve hired a detective to find him and he does not exist.
"I’ve visited a psychiatrist and its all been put down to stress. He thinks they’re hallucinations, but I know this isn’t the case. My former boyfriend is with me as though nothing had happened—apparently we never broke it off [in this world]—and Agustín (my current boyfriend) appears to have never existed. He doesn’t live in the apartment he used to live at and I cannot find his son.
"I swear to you that it's true and that I’m very sane. My own family doesn’t remember things like surgery performed on my sister’s shoulder a few months ago: she says she's never been operated on. Small things to that effect."
Yes, just small things. Things like a different job, a loved one that's vanished forever, and another life in another universe that can never be returned to again.


A plaintive plea

As can be imagined, Lerina's traumatic life on this new Earth with a boyfriend she'd broken up with in the other world is causing her bouts of stress and depression. She ends her story with a plea for help:
"Please, if someone has had a similar experience, please contact me to see what may have happened.
"I cannot find any pathology that matches my experience. For five months I’ve been reading all of the theories I’ve come across and am convinced that it has been a jump between planes or something, a decision or action taken that has caused things to change.
"What upsets me is that that I’m in the same year, not in a different time, and I’m exactly the same. Let me explain: it’s as though I had lost my memory five months ago and woke up having dreamed those five months, with the exception that everyone remembers me during that time, and I’ve done things that I’m not aware of having done.
"Has anyone had a similar experience? Pranksters and people with a grasp on 'the truth' can refrain from commenting. This is very serious to me. Thank you — Luz.”
Could Lerina—a highly educated woman—be simply hallucinating everything? Perhaps she is suffering from a form of rare spatial time-related mental illness?


Perhaps not, for she's not alone in her experience.


An impossible visitor arrives in Toyko


A curious incident took place in Tokyo, Japan during the early 1990s: a man arrived on a flight with a passport from a non-existent country.
The man expressed anger and shock when Japanese customs officials detained him. Although the officials checked their records carefully, the passport had been issued by a country that did not exist. No record showed the country had ever existed.
Although passports exist issued by non-existent countries (known as camouflage passports), this passport was real and had custom officials' stamps on various pages including stamps by Japanese customs officials from previous visits.
The man was well-traveled, caucasian, said the country was in Europe and had existed for almost 1,000 years. He carried legal currency from several European countries, an international drivers license and spoke several languages.
Finally, indignant, he demanded a meeting with higher government authorities. He was convinced some massive practical joke was being played on him.
After being detained for almost 14 hours in a small security room at the airport terminal, some government officials took pity on him and transported him to a hotel. They ordered the mystery visitor to wait there until they decided what to do about the matter. From the reports, the Japanese were just as confused and flustered as the mysterious man without a country.
Although two immigration officials were posted with instructions not to permit the man to leave his room, the next morning the guards discovered he was gone. The only exit was the door they watched and the only window had no outside ledge and was 15 stories above a busy downtown street.
The authorities launched an intensive manhunt throughout Tokyo for the mysterious traveler, but finally gave up the hunt.
The man was never seen again.


The professor's drive into oblivion


Inexplicata relates a story that is like Lerina's, except from the opposite point of view.
The original account was written by journalist Segundo Peña and published in one of Venezuela’s biggest newspapers, El Tiempo.
Peña relates a strange tale that smacks heavily of a multiverse shift. The incident occurred on the campus of ULA (the University of the Andes) and involved a well-known faculty member.
This is what happened in full daylight, according to dozens of witnesses: the professor left one of the university's buildings, crossed a parking lot to his parked car, and entered it. Many saw him as he walked to his car, some even called out to him and waved.
The professor opened his car door, climbed in, sat down, and closed the door. The car sat there unmoving. Eventually, a few curious students went to the car and found it empty.
The professor had vanished, presumably for good, as the incident occurred more than 40 years ago.
Can such things be explained?
There is no orthodox scientific explanation for any of the incidents described, unless one looks at the leading edge of scientific speculation.
Exploring that dimly lit boundary between knowledge and myth—between the known and the unknown—the answer may be found.
People who appear and disappear may not be snatched up by rogue ripples of time, but by anomalies in the fabric of the shifting, living multiverse.
Some quantum physicists theorize that existence is populated by infinite universes infinitely created. Each universe is like an infinite bubble birthing new universes—new limitless bubbles. Time does not exist. Instead everything is an eternity of now.
In the world of the quanta—which encompases all that is—the multiverses are vibrating at different rates and some parallel worlds literally overlap ours.
Physicists also have had glimpses into these other realties during experiments where sub-atomic particles have winked out of existence and then reappeared. Whether they're jumping dimensions, or actually traveling between multiverses, no one knows.
Finally, quantum theory and string theory recognize a symbiotic relationship between cognitive awareness and the universe. In essence, a universe cannot really exist unless a mind perceives it. The mind influences the quanta and the quanta influences (perhaps even programs) the mind. It's a two way street.
So now what would happen if that quantum link between the quantum universe and the quantum mind were broken—even briefly?
Would the person become like a ship that lost its anchor—in this case an anchor to the universe? Could a person slip from this reality into one right "next door" to our universe? If so, would there be an exchange trading one version of a person for another, sort of a universal-multiverse swap? Or, as in the case of the hapless lost professor, would a person simply vanish with no counterweight replacing him or her from an adjoining reality?
Time would be unaffected, and the two parallel universes would be so symmetrical that only minor things may be different.
Yes, minor things like a lover that no longer exists or a sister who never had surgery…

Operation Pink Slip Mail-In Campaign - Let Congress Know What's In Store For THEM For A Change!

Call To All Americans that are SICK TO DEATH of all the corruption infesting our government, to participate in the Fire Congress "Pink Slip Mail-in Campaign."




To find the address of your reps so you can mail them
their PINK SLIP Visit This Web Site  (Link doesn't work here go to Original Site)

Link to Original Site

No matter what you do to voice your displeasure with what our so-called representatives in government are doing, it's only as effective as the consequences our representatives suffer for not doing what we've hired them to do . . . represent US. For example, you can write them, fax them, camp outside their offices but the sad fact is your representatives are only wondering one thing . . . "OR WHAT? What are you going to do to me if I don't do what you want?"


The reason we are never taken seriously, the reason we are always ignored is simply because there are no real consequences for ignoring us. There is no criminal penalty for violating their oath of office. So we need to remind everyone exactly what the consequence are for violating our trust and the oath of office. WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE "REALLY" GOING TO DO. WE HAVE TO TELL EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM WE ARE GOING TO VOTE YOU OUT OF OFFICE YOU BASTARD! That's OR WHAT! And we actually have to follow through with it!

So you see, the real problem isn't the Congress. The real problem is US. We never hold any of them accountable. We just keep allowing them to be reelected over and over and over. We NEVER FOLLOW THROUGH WITH OUR THREAT.

The powers-that-be know full well that the likelihood of us forming the united front required to vote them out of office is about as likely as the Central Bankers forgiving all the debt they've enslaved humanity under and declaring a Jubilee. The powers-that-be are totally convinced they have socially conditioned us to such a degree that they believe we are literally incapable uniting over anything. And even if we start to, they know they can fractionalize us and destroy our focus with a snap of their fingers by throwing out a few political footballs. We fall for their tricks every single time.

Until we prove them wrong, until we prove we can stop bickering and fighting over whatever they determine will best stir the pot, and wake up to the false left/right paradigm nonsense, they will be absolutely right. They have no reason to fear us. Until we REALLY vote the bastards out of office EN MASS, we will never be taken seriously, we will never be paid attention to and our yelling and complaining is backed by nothing more than a hollow, pathetic threat to hold them accountable at the polls.

SO, we're proposing a new tactic be added to the mix. It's time for the American people to make it very clear what's in store for our current representatives for a change with Operation Pink Slip. Everyone who loves this country needs to download this Pink Slip, print out a bunch of them on bright pink paper, give them to all your friends and family and everyone must mail them into their Representatives and Senators. We need to flood Congress with PINK SLIPS. We need to bury them in them!

Our so-called representatives are masters at keeping us freaking out all the time. Don't you think it's time to put the pressure on them, to freak THEM out for a change? Wouldn't it be great to make them feel insecure from now through November, knowing we mean business this time and the jig is up!?

You don't even need to include your return address if you don't want to. You can send them totally anonymously. The main idea is to flood Congress with them.

And we ask that you send copies to all your local media outlets too, to let them know this is happening, so they can't ignore it like they ignore everything else.

We need to do more than just yell at Congress. We need to let them know they WILL be held accountable and how we are going to do it. We need to let them know we are going to FIRE THEM. BOOT THEM. And let them know their demise is imminent before the fact. We need to hit back and hit back hard in the only way open to us. We need to vote all these traitorous criminals out of office in November and we need to let them know loud and clear that this is exactly what we are going to do.

THEN WE ACTUALLY DO IT IN THE UPCOMING ELECTION! Until we actually follow through with the threat, on a scale that will actually be felt, we will NEVER be taken seriously and we will never have any say over anything of consequence. If we do this just once, the whole political landscape will change for the better. The balance of power will shift back to our side of the equation for a change.

NOTE: Some people have mentioned that the Capital no longer opens mail because of the anthrax issue. I called and they do in fact open mail. They simply screen "ALL" mail now before it gets to Congress, so it takes twice as long to get to them.

As we get closer to the 2012 election,

we will be organizing a MASS mailing of Pink Slips.
STAY TUNED.

If you'd like to be notified of the main Pink Slip Mailing Event
please send us an email to get on the list at HERE.

Of course, it never hurts to send them one NOW!
Or as many times as you wish in the meantime.

Are Conspiracy Theories Really Just Theories? Woodrow Wilson Didn't Think So Apparently

We tend to think that this just started, but it seems this has been coming down the road for a long time, a long time. It was old and well on the way before Wilson.

Lee Murray

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!


"Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere, so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it." -- Woodrow Wilson
