Beck and Oreilly – Keeping The “Evil Nazi” Propoganda Fresh In Peoples Minds

If there is one goal that all jews work towards it is to insure that Nazi Germany and it’s leader Adolf Hitler are to be synonymous with words like evil and hatred. The jews greatest tool is the pity card, the “oy vey ve are so persecuted” BS that well all are indoctrinated with constantly.

Why is this important? It is a license to steal, kill and squash dissent. If you suggest that the jews have no right to steal land from Palestinians and kill those who resist than guess what? You are an evil Nazi.

They use it on the left, the right and the center. The republicans are Nazi’s the democrats are Nazi fascists. They want to keep Nazi Germany fresh in everyones minds so that we by default are all reminded who are the “victims” of the whole ordeal.

Beck claims that Obama is a Nazi, yet let’s asses the situation honestly. Nazi Germany expelled the marxists (jews). Meanwhile here in America we have a President who is a marxist, surrounds himself by jews, and a RECORD number of jews in Congress, the most powerful lobby is AIPAC, and continue to give billions of dollars per year to the terror state of israel despite the fact that we are completely broke.

So clearly this is the anithesis to Nazi Germany and exactly what Hitler fought to purge from his country.  Yet people lap up the propaganda spewed forth by Beck without even a passing thought to whether or not it is true.

Led by Glenn Beck — who was once condemned by the Anti-Defamation League for saying Al Gore used “the same tactic” as Adolf Hitler — Fox News personalities have frequently invoked Nazi Germany in their political commentary, often comparing progressives to Hitler, Joseph Goebbels, and the Nazi “brownshirts.”
Beck regularly invokes Nazis, Hitler, Goebbels, other Nazi imagery

Beck: Obama advisers show “the kind of thinking that … eventually led to the Holocaust.” On his October 5 radio show, Beck said that statements by Obama advisers John Holdren, Ezekiel Emanuel and Cass Sunstein indicate “the kind of thinking that led to … the extermination program that eventually led to the Holocaust.”

Beck likened reporting about him to “what Goebbels did.” Complaining on the August 27 edition of his radio show that ABC reported a statement by Beck that blacks don’t own Martin Luther King without also noting that he also said whites don’t own Abraham Lincoln, Beck said: “You know what? I’m gonna get a lot of heat for this, but stand in line. That’s what [Nazi propagandist Joseph] Goebbels did. That’s what Goebbels did. The truth didn’t matter.”

Beck equates children singing about Obama with “Hitler Youth.” On the June 17 edition of his radio show, Beck said that children singing about Obama was “the playbook of the progressives from … the former regime in Germany, the Third Reich.” Beck added, “This is Hitler Youth.”

Beck: Putting “the common good” first “exactly the kind of talk that led to the death camps in Germany.” Attacking criticism of him by Jewish Funds for Justice’s Simon Greer, Beck asserted on his May 28 radio show that Greer’s comments about putting “human kind and the common good” first “is exactly the kind of talk that led to the death camps in Germany,” adding, “[a] Jew, of all people, should know that.”

Beck: “frightening similarities” between Sunstein, Goebbels. On the May 27 edition of his radio show, Beck claimed there were “frightening similarities” between Cass Sunstein and Goebbels.

Beck: “You can’t just change the law” to raise BP’s liability cap; “Is that what we fought the Nazis for?” On his May 4 radio show, discussing a reported proposal to retroactively increase liability limits to cover the costs of the Gulf oil spill, Beck responded: “Did we go and fight Germany for this? Is that what we fought the Nazis for? Is that why those millions of people died?”

Beck: Progressives use “democratic elections” to push dictators — “Hitler, ‘democratically elected.’ ” On the April 28 edition of his Fox News show, Beck stated that progressives use “democratic elections” to push dictators, then stated, “You’ll hear this when they talk about the ‘democratically elected’ leader of Iran; the democratic leader Chavez, ‘democratically elected,’ you know; Castro, ‘democratically elected’; Hitler – ‘democratically elected.’ “

Beck: “Progressives build the structure that a communist, a Marxist, a Nazi would love to have.” On the April 22 edition of his radio show, Beck stated that “[p]rogressives build the structure that a communist, a Marxist, a Nazi would love to have.”

Beck invoked “first they came for the Jews” poem to respond to ad boycotts. On the April 8 edition of his Fox News show, Beck portrayed ad boycotts of his show as being orchestrated by the Obama White House in order to “destroy” his “career” and “silence” him, adding: “Is there absolutely no chance whatsoever that you might be a target at some point in the future? What’s that poem? First they came for the Jews, and I stayed silent?”

Beck invokes Nazis to attack worker ID cards: “It was only one of the first things that Hitler did.” On the March 9 edition of his radio show, Beck discussed a proposal by Sens. Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Lindsay Graham (R-SC) to implement national ID cards for workers and said, “It was only one of the first things that Hitler did.”

Beck: Obama campaign videos were Goebbels-like “propaganda.” On the February 16 edition of his radio show, Beck said that videos produced by Obama campaign manager David Plouffe were “propaganda” out of the Nazi “playbook”: “Remember, Goebbels, king of propaganda. … This is yet another playbook — page taken right out of the playbook.”

Beck documentary linked progressives to Hitler. Beck’s documentary Revolutionary Holocaust purported to link progressivism to the atrocities of Hitler, among other brutal dictators. Numerous historians denounced the inferences Beck drew in the film.

Beck on NEA conference call: “You should look up the name Goebbels.” On the November 3, 2009, edition of his Fox News show, discussing an NEA conference call in which artists reportedly discussed how “to help lay a new foundation for growth, focusing on core areas of the recovery agenda,” Beck said that “advocating through art is known as propaganda. Hmm. You should look up the name Goebbels.”

Beck compared Fox News to Jews during Holocaust, other news organizations to silent bystanders. On the October 13, 2009, broadcast of his radio show, Beck compared Fox News to the Jews during the Holocaust, telling other media outlets, “When they’re done with Fox, and you decide to speak out on something. The old, ‘first they came for the Jews, and I wasn’t Jewish.’ ” He went on to say, “When they’re done with Fox and talk radio, do you really think they’re going to leave you alone if you want to ask a tough question? … If you believe that, you should open up a history book, because you’ve missed the point of many brutal dictators.”

Beck on Obama’s “civilian national security force”: “This is what Hitler did with the SS.” Discussing President Obama’s call for a “civilian national security force” — which was a reference to expanding the foreign service, AmeriCorps, and the Peace Corps — Beck said on the August 27, 2009, edition of his Fox News program:

BECK: I’m finding this — this is the hardest part to connect to. Because this is — I mean, look, you know, David [Bellavia, former Army staff sergeant], what you just said is, you said, ‘I’m not comparing’ — but you are. I mean, this is what Hitler did with the SS. He had his own people. He had the brownshirts and then the SS. This is what Saddam Hussein — so — but you are comparing that. And I — I mean, I think America would have a really hard time getting their arms around that.

Beck told Newsmax: “I fear a Reichstag moment.” On September 29, 2009, conservative news website Newsmax.com reported of its interview with Beck:

But his real worry is that many Washington elitists really don’t like our form of government and want to see it abolished.

“I fear a Reichstag moment,” he said, referring to the 1933 burning of Germany’s parliament building in Berlin that the Nazis blamed on communists and Hitler used as an excuse to suspend constitutional liberties and consolidate power.

“God forbid, another 9/11. Something that will turn this machine on, and power will be seized and voices will be silenced.”

Beck said he’s “not comparing” Obama to Hitler, then urged his audience to “please read Mein Kampf” and learn from Germany’s mistakes. On the August 12, 2009, broadcast of his radio show, discussing Obama’s position on health care reform, Beck stated:

BECK: I am not comparing him to this, but please, read Mein Kampf for this reason. If you read it now, you see that Hitler told you what he was going to do. He told the Germans. It outsold the Bible. Germans read Mein Kampf, but what did they do? They didn’t listen. ‘Oh, he doesn’t mean that.’ ‘Oh, he’s just saying that to appeal to X, Y, Z.’ All of the same lies we’re telling to ourselves. ‘No, that’s crazy. Nobody would actually do that.’ They buried their heads in the sand, and then it became too late. Please, America, take this man for what he says.

Beck compares media portrayal of “tea partygoers” to Nazi portrayal of anti-Nazi “complainers.” On the August 11, 2009, edition of his Fox show, Beck compared the media’s portrayal of the “tea partygoers” to a Nazi propaganda poster portraying “complainers” about Nazi policies, saying, “This is a poster of what you see every day now in the news media making the complainers, the tea partygoers, look somehow rotten.”

Beck links health care reform to Nazis, suggests reform would kill elderly and newborns. On his August 6, 2009, radio show, Beck suggested that health care reform would lead to the eugenics programs undertaken in Nazi Germany, saying that “three people in the White House are in love with eugenics” and that reform would kill the elderly and newborns.

Beck said “the Germans” during Hitler’s rise “were an awful lot like we are now.” On the June 10, 2009, edition of his Fox News program, Beck stated: “I think the Germans, however, were an awful lot like we are now. We’re kind of living in a denial, like, ‘No, no, that can’t really be happening. No, that really — I — you don’t want to believe some things, but you have to. You have to actually think about them.”

Beck compared car dealership closures to Nazism, warning “at some point, they’re going to come for you.” While discussing the closures of auto dealerships under the bankruptcy deals of GM and Chrysler, Beck said that the “poem that keeps going through my mind is ‘First they came for the Jews,’ ” adding, “Gang, at some point they’re going to come for you.”

Beck compared auto bailouts to the actions of German companies “in the early days of Adolf Hitler.” While discussing the auto company bailouts on the April 1, 2009, edition of his Fox News program, after stating, “I am not saying that Barack Obama is a fascist,” Beck said, “If I’m not mistaken, in the early days of Adolf Hitler, they were very happy to line up for help there as well. I mean, the companies were like, ‘Hey, wait a minute. We can get, you know, we can get out of trouble here. They can help, et cetera, et cetera.’ “

Beck compared TARP to “what happened to the lead-up with Hitler.” On the April 21, 2009, edition of Fox Business’ Money for Breakfast, Beck said of the Troubled Asset Relief Program [TARP]:

BECK: This is not comparing these people to the people in Germany, but this is exactly what happened to the lead-up with Hitler. Hitler opened up the door and said, “Hey, companies, I can help you.” They all ran through the door. And then in the end, they all saw, “Uh-oh. I’m in bed with the devil.” They started to take their foot out, and Hitler said, “Absolutely not. Sorry, gang. This is good for the country. We’ve got to do these things.” And it was too late.

Beck airs photos of Hitler, Stalin, Lenin, asks, “Is this where we’re headed?” On the April 2, 2009, edition of his Fox News program, while teasing the next day’s show, Beck asked, “Is this where we’re headed?” while airing photos of Hitler, Josef Stalin, and Vladimir Lenin.

Beck has attacked progressive organizations as “brownshirts.” Beck has repeatedly attacked the “brownshirts” at ACORN and “their henchmen” at the Service Employees International Union.

Beck warned of impending “national socialism.” On the February 6, 2009, edition of The O’Reilly Factor, Beck claimed that “We are really truly stepping beyond socialism and starting to look at fascism.” Then, purporting to “explain what happened in Nazi Germany,” Beck claimed that “we’re talking now about nationalizing the banks,” which he called “national socialism.” Beck said that “at first, all the big companies and the big capitalists in Germany said, ‘Oh, thank goodness there’s a savior. OK, great, we’ll do that. Yes.’ It didn’t take too long before, like here in America now — Goldman Sachs — they started to see the writing on the wall and … they couldn’t get out of it fast enough.”
ADL rebuked Beck for smearing Gore as a Nazi

Beck repeatedly compared Gore to a Nazi propagandist. Beck has repeatedly likened Gore to a Nazi propagandist for speaking out about global warming, notably comparing Gore to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. Beck also suggested that by giving a speech to students, Gore was trying to “indoctrinate the kids” like the “new Hitler Youth” and said of Gore’s 2006 Academy Award winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth: “It’s like Hitler.”

Beck compares Gore to Goebbels, says, “The government and its friends are indoctrinating our children for the control of their minds.” On the February 5, 2009, edition of his Fox News show, Beck stated, “The government and its friends are indoctrinating our children for the control of their minds, your freedom, and our choice and our future.” Beck then quoted Joesph Goebbels discussing the Hitler Youth and said, “If mom and dad decide the keep the temperature above 72, should our ‘Gore youth’ report mom and dad?”

Beck: Holocaust survivor’s story of how Nazis drove a wedge between students and parents sounds like U.N. and Gore. On the September 24 edition of his Fox News show, Beck hosted a Holocaust survivor who said that the Nazis drove a wedge between students and their parents. Beck responded by saying, “I don’t know about anybody else … this, to me, doesn’t sound like stuff necessarily that I’ve heard from Obama. This is stuff that I’ve heard from the U.N. This is the kind of stuff that we have heard from … Al Gore.”

In 2007, ADL rebuked Beck’s smears of Gore. On May 2, 2007, the ADL issued a press release condemning Beck’s April 30, 2007, statement that “Al Gore’s not going to be rounding up Jews and exterminating them. It is the same tactic, however. The goal is different. The goal is globalization. The goal is global carbon tax. The goal is the United Nations running the world.” Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director and a Holocaust survivor, said of the remark, in part: “Glenn Beck’s linkage of Hitler’s plan to round up and exterminate Jews with Al Gore’s efforts to raise awareness of global warming is outrageous, insensitive and deeply offensive.”
Beck promoted Nazi sympathizer’s book

Beck: The Red Network — rife with racism and anti-Semitism and written by a Nazi sympathizer — did “what we’re doing now.” On his June 4 radio program, Beck promoted The Red Network by Elizabeth Dilling, saying of the 1934 book: “This is a book — and I’m a getting a ton of these — from people who were doing what we’re doing now. We now are documenting who all of these people are. Well, there were Americans in the first 50 years of this nation that took this seriously, and they documented it.” As Media Matters noted, Dilling’s book contains numerous passages that espouse anti-Semitism and racism. At various points throughout the book, Dilling attacked “racial inter-mixture” as a communist plot, referred to “un-Christianized” “colored people” as “savages,” called Hinduism and Islam “debasing and degrading,” and blamed Nazi Germany’s anti-Semitism on “revolutionary Russian Jews.” Dilling visited Germany in the late 1930s, where she attended Nazi party meetings and praised Adolf Hitler’s leadership. She also spoke at rallies hosted by U.S. Nazi organizations after the outbreak of World War II. Following the war, she leveled anti-Semitic attacks against several U.S. presidents, calling Dwight Eisenhower “Ike the Kike,” attacking Richard Nixon for his “service to the synagogue,” and calling John F. Kennedy’s New Frontier program the “Jew frontier.”

Beck refused to apologize. On June 7, Beck briefly reacted to the controversy surrounding his approving citation of Dilling’s work, but refused to apologize for promoting her hateful work on the air. Instead, Beck attacked “the left” for calling him “a Jew-loving Nazi sympathizer.”
Beck has repeatedly invoked Weimar Republic

Beck has used his radio and TV programs to repeatedly warn that the U.S. is becoming the Weimar Republic, the post-World War I German system of government supplanted by Hitler’s Third Reich:

On February 24, 2009, Beck suggested that the U.S. was on course to make the “scariest mistake that Germany made during Weimar Republic.”

On October 28, 2009, Beck theorized that the United States, in order to pay its debts, would continue printing money and drive up inflation, at which point the country would drop the dollar as its currency and establish a new currency backed by land, which the government will seize through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Beck explained that this is exactly what happened in the Weimar Republic.

On January 5, Beck predicted a possible future of hyperinflation he described as “the Great Depression times 100,” adding: “This is the reason I told you two years ago, please study the Weimar Republic.”

On May 12, Beck said the U.S. is “devaluing the currency” through “digitizing money,” adding, “What happens when you digitize money? Weimar Republic, collapse.”

On July 8, Beck said that businesses working with the Obama administration resulted in a “short-term gain” followed by a “long-term loss of freedom,” claiming that “if you look at the history of the Weimar Republic,” events unfolded in a similar manner.

On August 2, Beck explained deflation and hyperinflation by saying, “See if you notice any similarities of the Weimar Republic” to the U.S. economy.

On August 5, Beck asserted of the Weimar Republic, “the patterns are repeating itself.” [sic]

On August 12, Beck asked his viewers to “watch for three things” that were done in the Weimar Republic, saying that “you must educate yourself.”

In an October 7 commercial for Goldline, Beck asserted that the U.S. is “officially in Weimar Republic territory.”

On October 15, Beck’s radio co-host Pat Gray claimed that the federal government is “taking over all our property,” with Beck adding, “That is what they did in Weimar. They just took it.”

O’Reilly, other Fox personalities have also invoked the Nazis

Gingrich: Obama, Dems threatening America as much as “Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union once did.” On the May 16 edition of Fox News Sunday, Newt Gingrich said that President Obama and the Democratic Party present as great a threat as “Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union once did.”

O’Reilly said liberals who support gun control are “totalitarians,” compared them to Hitler. On the March 2 edition of The O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly said liberals who support gun control are “today’s totalitarians,” adding that in the past people like “Hitler and Mussolini” held such positions in favor of “state control.”

O’Reilly claimed media using Goebbels tactics to push “rank propaganda.” In his July 16, 2009, syndicated column, O’Reilly wrote that “The far left is trying to create a huge federal apparatus that will promote income redistribution and “social justice.” Also, the left sees a major opportunity to knock out Judeo-Christian traditions, replacing them with a secular philosophy.” He added that “the left-wing media is marginalizing people like Sarah Palin who oppose the strategy. Under the guise of hard news reporting, the media is pushing rank propaganda on the citizenry. Dr. Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda minister, successfully developed this tactic in the 1930’s.”

O’Reilly: Huffington Post uses “same exact tactics that the Nazis used.” On The March 5, 2008, edition of The O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly said “And I said that these tactics that are being used on this website, The Huffington Post, are the same exact tactics that the Nazis used in the late ’20s and early ’30s to demonize certain groups of people, so it would become easier for them, the Nazis, when they took power, to hurt those people.” Earlier, on February 27, 2008, O’Reilly said that “I don’t see any difference between [Arianna] Huffington and the Nazis. … I don’t see any difference.”

O’Reilly compared Tim Robbins’ comments to those of “Von Ribbentrop in the Nazi hierarchy.” On the December 13, 2007, edition of The O’Reilly Factor, Jane Hall said that comments made by actor Tim Robbins while campaigning for John Edwards were “valid.” In response, Bill O’Reilly said, ” But Von Ribbentrop in the Nazi hierarchy made valid points, Jane.”

O’Reilly: Daily Kos is “like the Nazi Party.” On the July 16, 2007, edition of The O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly said that the Daily Kos is “like the Ku Klux Klan. It’s like the Nazi party. There’s no difference here.” A day later, O’Reilly said “That website traffics in [hate], as do the Nazi websites. No difference.” On July 19, 2007, O’Reilly said of Daily Kos: “The hate this website traffics in rivals the KKK and Nazi websites.”

Hannity: Using Quran for swearing-in is same as using a “Nazi bible.” On the November 30, 2006, edition of Hannity & Colmes, Sean Hannity said that Rep. Keith Ellison using a copy of the Quran during his swearing-in ceremony “will embolden Islamic extremists and make new ones” and is comparable to using “Hitler’s Mein Kampf, is the Nazis’ bible.”

Coulter on Media Matters: “little Nazi block watcher” website. On the December 1, 2005, edition of Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor, right-wing pundit Ann Coulter called websites like Media Matters “little Nazi block watchers” that “tattle on their parents, turn them in to the Nazis.”

O’Reilly compares Michael Moore’s “power” to what “happened in Nazi Germany.” On the July 28, 2004, edition of The O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’Reilly said that Michael Moore “has more power than probably anybody else other than [Senators John] Kerry and [John] Edwards,” adding that Moore’s purported “power” was “scary” because “this happened in Nazi Germany.” O’Reilly went on to ask: “Who was the most powerful person in Nazi Germany other than Hitler and Himmler and Goering, who? You guys know? … Goebbels. The propaganda minister.”

O’Reilly likened Moore, Franken to Goebbels. On the June 14, 2004, edition of The O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’Reilly compared both Michael Moore and Al Franken to Goebbels. O’Reilly also likened a group of Hollywood celebrities who attended a premiere of Moore’s film Fahrenheit 9/11 to “the people who would turn out to see Josef Goebbels convince you that Poland invaded the Third Reich.”

Blacks More Destructive Than Nuclear Weapons

Hiroshima 1945

Hiroshima 2010

Detroit 2010

So as you can clearly see, even if a city is nuked and leveled completely to the ground and tainted with radiation it can recover with time. However if blacks move into your city it is destroyed from within and deteriorates over time to the level of the rest of Africa.

30 Reasons Why People Should Be Getting Really Nervous About the State of the U.S. Economy

 Source

The mainstream media is full of happy economic news these days. The S&P 500 has shot up 16 percent since the beginning of July. Ford Motor Company just reported a profit that jumped nearly 70 percent in the third quarter. It was Ford’s best third quarter performance ever and it was the 6th quarterly profit in a row for the company. Other major firms have announced earnings that have far exceeded expectations in recent weeks. Hooray! The pundits are proclaiming that the economic collapse is over and that the U.S. economy has won. It is almost enough to make one tear into a stirring rendition of “Happy Days Are Here Again.” But perhaps we should take a moment and get a hold of ourselves first. After all, the underlying economic fundamentals have not changed. The same long-term trends that were ripping the U.S. financial system apart a month or two ago are still continuing to do so. Millions upon millions of American families are still deeply suffering. So exactly what in the world is going on here? Well, this is what is known as a “sucker’s rally.” Those on the inside know better than to throw money at this market. In fact, corporate insiders are now selling off stock so fast you would think it is going out of style. Meanwhile, hordes of innocent rubes are jumping back into the stock market thinking that it is the perfect time to get in.

The truth is that these “good times” are only temporary. Don’t get used to them. The following are 30 reasons why people should be getting really, really nervous about the state of the U.S. economy….

#1 Corporate insiders are selling off stock at a blinding pace and are looking for the exits. Alan Newman, the editor of the Crosscurrents newsletter, examined a number of the top performing stocks in the market including Google, Apple and Target and found that the ratio of corporate insider stock sold to corporate insider stock purchased over the last six months for those companies was 3,177 to 1. At the group of firms that Newman looked at, corporate insiders had purchased 38,000 shares of stock over the last six months and yet had sold off over 120 million shares.

#2 Analysts at both Bank of America and Goldman Sachs both believe that the U.S. Federal Reserve is going to initiate a new round of quantitative easing in November. It does not take a genius to figure out that this is very likely to push up inflation and have very serious consequences for the U.S. dollar.

#3 Economists at Goldman Sachs are projecting that the Fed will have to purchase at least $4 trillion in assets during this next round of quantitative easing to get the U.S. economy moving in a positive direction once again.

#4 In the United States today, there are 5,057 janitors with Ph.D.’s, other doctorates, or professional degrees.

#5 Investors have very little faith in the U.S. dollar (and in paper currencies in general) at this point. Precious metals are soaring to obscene heights. The price of gold has increased more than 20 percent in 2010. The price of silver has skyrocketed about 40 percent this year. These are not signs that indicate that the U.S. financial system is stable.

#6 Robin Griffiths, a technical strategist at Cazenove Capital, told CNBC on Monday that the U.S. dollar is in danger of becoming “toxic waste.”

#7 In the United States today, 317,000 waiters and waitresses have college degrees.

#8 U.S. lending institutions repossessed an all-time record total of 102,134 homes in the month of 
September. That was the first time that home repossessions in the U.S. had ever exceeded the 100,000 mark during a single month.

#9 According to a Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller home price report that was released on Tuesday, single family home prices in the United States declined for a second straight month in August.

#10 In the United States today, over 18,000 parking lot attendants have college degrees.

#11 During the months of August and September, the state of Nevada had an unemployment rate of 14.4 percent, which was the highest in the history of the state. Not that the rest of the country is doing any better. The state of California has become a complete and total economic disaster zone, and the city of Detroit, Michigan is literally dying.

#12 The “official” unemployment rate in the United States has been at nine and a half percent or above for 14 consecutive months.

#13 The number of people unemployed in the state of California is approximately equivalent to the populations of Nevada, New Hampshire and Vermont combined.

#14 According to the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, there are approximately 3 million more vacant housing units than usual in the United States.

#15 China has reduced the export quota on rare earth elements for the second half of 2010 by 72%, thus strengthening their position in the world economy even more. Rare earth elements are absolutely crucial to the manufacture of a vast array of high technology products, and now even more of them will have to be made in China.

#16 In 1985, the U.S. trade deficit with China was 6 million dollars for the entire year. In the month of August alone, the U.S. trade deficit with China was over 28 billion dollars.

#17 Wheat, corn and other staples are absolutely soaring in price on world markets. These higher food prices are going to hit U.S. consumers hard.

#18 In 2007, 3 U.S. banks failed. In 2008, 25 U.S. banks failed. In 2009, 140 U.S. banks failed. Last Friday, it was announced that 139 U.S. banks have failed so far this year and it is not even the end of October yet.

#19 Total student loan debt in the United States is climbing at a rate of approximately $2,853.88 per second.

#20 Back in 1980, the United States imported approximately 37 percent of the oil that we use. Now we import nearly 60 percent of the oil that we use.

#21 According to an analysis by the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation, the health care reform legislation that Congress didn’t read but passed into law anyway will generate $409.2 billion in additional taxes on the American people by the year 2019.

#22 Median household income in the U.S. declined from $51,726 in 2008 to $50,221 in 2009. That was the second yearly decline in a row.

#23 One out of every six Americans is now enrolled in a government anti-poverty program, and yet the number of Americans signing up for food stamps and other social programs just continues to set new all-time records month after month after month.

#24 The number of Americans working part-time jobs “for economic reasons” is now the highest it has been in at least five decades.

#25 American 15-year-olds do not even rank in the top half of all advanced nations when it comes to math or science literacy.

#26 According to a recent poll conducted by CNBC, 92 percent of Americans believe that the performance of the U.S. economy is either “fair” or “poor.”

#27 After analyzing Congressional Budget Office data, Boston University economics professor Laurence J. Kotlikoff came to the conclusion that the U.S. government is now facing a “fiscal gap” of $202 trillion dollars.

#28 A trillion $10 bills, if they were taped end to end, would wrap around the earth more than 380 times. That amount of money would still not be enough to pay off the U.S. national debt.

#29 According to the U.S. Treasury Department, the U.S. national debt is rapidly closing in on 14 trillion dollars and and will climb to an estimated $19.6 trillion by 2015.

#30 At our current pace, the Congressional Budget Office is projecting that U.S. government public debt will hit 716 percent of GDP by the year 2080.

The U.S. economy is in the midst of a long-term decline. There are always going to be moments when it seems like things are getting a bit better, but then reality will kick in and the depressing slide will continue.

If you really want to understand what is happening to the U.S. economy, do not become fixated on the short-term numbers. Instead, always keep an eye on the long-term trends.

The U.S. economy is dying. We are getting whipped by the rest of the world and we are drowning in a sea of debt. A little rally in the stock market is not going to do a thing to fix our very deep fundamental economic problems.

Has WikiLeaks Landed in Cyberattack Crosshairs?

Forget China or Al Qaeda. In a twist that would have been inconceivable even a few months ago, the WikiLeaks.org Web site is being proposed as the first public target for a U.S. government cyberattack.

After the shadowy, document-leaking organization distributed nearly 400,000 classified documents from the Iraq war on Friday, Washington officialdom responded with a torrent of denunciations alleging violations of national security and endangering U.S. military operations.
WikiLeaks

In a rare point of congruence, The Washington Post and The Washington Times both criticized the release, with the smaller paper arguing that WikiLeaks’ offshore Web site should be attacked and rendered “inoperable” by the U.S. government. Some hawkish conservatives followed suit, including Christian Whiton, a State Department adviser under President George W. Bush, who wrote a column calling on the U.S. military to “electronically assault WikiLeaks and any telecommunications company offering its services to this organization.”

As I have said from day one which is why I have never had a personal facebook, myspace, or twitter account.  I urge everyone to share this story with everyone they know, as well as the other facebook stories I have covered.

Source

My loyal readers may recall that DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) has some grotesque tentacles: the Information Awareness Office (IAO); TIA (Total Information Awareness, renamed Terrorism Information Program); and TIPS (Terrorism Information and Prevention System).

It is commonly believed that in 2003 an irate American people forced the government to stop these Orwellian command-and-control police state operations—or did they?

Congress stopped the IAO from gathering as much information as possible about everyone in a centralized nexus for easy spying by the United States government, including internet activity, credit card purchase histories, airline ticket purchases, car rentals, medical records, educational transcripts, driver’s licenses, utility bills, tax returns, and all other available data. The government’s plan was to emulate Communist East Germany’s STASI police state by getting mailmen, boy scouts, teachers, students and others to spy on everyone else. Children would be urged to spy on parents.

These layers of the mind control infrastructure were seemingly dead and buried. But was the stake actually driven through its evil heart? History leads us to believe that it was not.

Then shazam here comes the privacy killing juggernaut called Facebook.

Facebook, however, does what Chairman Mao, Joseph Stalin, or Adolf Hitler could not have dreamt of – it has a half billion people willingly doing a form of spy work on all their friends, family, neighbors, etc.—while enthusiastically revealing information on themselves. The huge database on these half a billion members (and non-members who are written about) is too much power for any private entity—but what if it is part of, or is accessed by, the military-industrial-national security-police state complex?

We all know that “he who pays the check, calls the shots,” therefore; whoever controls the purse strings controls the whole project. When it had less than a million or so participants, Facebook demonstrated the potential to do even more than IAO, TIA and TIPS combined. Facebook really exploded after its second round of funding—$12.7 million from the venture capital firm Accel Partners. Its manager, James Breyer, was formerly chairman of the National Venture Capital Association and served on the board with Gilman Louie, CEO of In-Q-Tel, a venture capital front established by the CIA in 1999. In-Q-Tel is the same outfit that funds Google and other technological powerhouses. One of its specialties is “data mining technologies.”

Dr. Anita Jones, who joined the firm, also came from Gilman Louie and served on In-Q-Tel’s board. She had been director of Defense Research and Engineering for the U.S. Department of Defense. This link goes full circle because she was also an adviser to the secretary of defense, overseeing DARPA, which is responsible for high-tech, high-end development.

But as bad as the beginning of Facebook is, the parallels between the CIA’s backing of Google’s dream of becoming “the mind of God,” and the CIA’s funding of Facebook’s goal of knowing everything about everybody is anything but benign.

Furthermore, the CIA uses a Facebook group to recruit staff for its National Clandestine Service. Check it out if you dare.

Do not become a victim of this full frontal assault on your personal information. Think twice about putting your entire life on Facebook or by that matter on any social media site. None of it is ever private. Everything you put online stays online forever in a server farm somewhere for anyone to analyze you and the people you love. They do not care about your privacy at all and put great value on uncovering all they can about you. They have an agenda that will become more and more apparent to people as time goes by. Believe it or not there is a great change coming in our culture that many choose to be blind too. The mass loss of liberty and freedom we are experiencing is just a signal to the direction this is all going.

10 Questions For The Tea Partiers by Ralph Nader

By RALPH NADER

Here are ten Questions for Tea Partiers that they want or do not want to answer. I say it this way because people who call themselves Tea Partiers do not have the same view of politics, government, Big Business or the Constitution. Their opinions range from pure Libertarian to actively furthering the privileges of plutocracy. Their income and occupational background vary as well, though most seem to be middle-income and up.

My guess is that most Tea Partiers come from the conservative wing of the Republican Party who are fed up with both the corporate Republicans like Bush and Cheney, as well as the Democrats like Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi.

With the above in mind, the following questions can serve to go beyond abstractions and generalizations of indignation and get to some more specific responses.

1. Can you be against Big Government and not press for reductions in the vast military budgets, fraught with bureaucratic and large contractors’ waste, fraud and abuse? Military spending now takes up half of the federal government’s operating budgets. The libertarian Cato Institute believes that to cut deficits, we have to also cut the defense budget.

2. Can you believe in the free market and not condemn hundreds of billions of dollars of corporate welfare-bailouts, subsidies, handouts, and giveaways?

3. Can you want to preserve the legitimate sovereignty of our country and not reject the trade agreements known as NAFTA and GATT (The World Trade Organization in Geneva, Switzerland) that scholars have described as the greatest surrender of local, state and national sovereignty in our history?

4. Can you be for law and order and not support a bigger and faster crackdown on the corporate crime wave, that needs more prosecutors and larger enforcement budgets to stop the stealing of taxpayers and consumer dollars so widely reported in the Wall Street Journal and Business Week? Law enforcement officials estimate that for every dollar for prosecution, seventeen to twenty dollars are returned.

5. Can you be against invasions of privacy by government and business without rejecting the provisions of the Patriot Act that leave you defenseless to constant unlawful snooping, appropriation of personal information and even search of your home without notification until 72 hours later?

6. Can you be against regulation of serious medical malpractice (over 100,000 lives lost a year, according to a study by Harvard physicians), unsafe drugs that have serious side effects or cause the very injury/illness they were sold to prevent, motor vehicles with defective brakes, tires and throttles, contaminated food from China, Mexico and domestic processors?

7. Can you keep calling for Freedom and yet tolerate control of your credit and other economic rights by hidden and arbitrary credit ratings and credit scores? What Freedom do you have when you have to sign industry-wide fine print one-sided “contracts” with your banks, insurance companies, car dealers, and credit card companies? Many of these contracts even block your Constitutional access to the courthouse.

8. Can you be for a new, clean system of politics and elections and still accept the Republican and Democratic Two Party dictatorship that is propped up by complex state laws, frivolous litigation and harassment to exclude from the ballot third parties and independent candidates who want reform, accountability, and stronger voices for the voters?

9. If you want a return to our Constitution—its principles of limited and separation of power and its emphasis on “We the People” in its preamble—can you still support Washington’s wars that have not been declared by Congress (Article I Section 8) or giving corporations equal rights with humans plus special privileges and immunities. The word “corporation” or “company” never appears in the Constitution. How can you support eminent domain powers given by governments to corporations over homeowners, or massive week-end bailouts by the Federal Reserve and Treasury Department of businesses, even reckless foreign banks, without receiving the authority and the appropriations from the Congress, as the Constitution requires?

10. You want less taxation and lower deficits. How can you succeed unless you stop big corporations from escaping their fair share of taxes by manipulating foreign jurisdictions against our tax laws, for example, or by letting trillions of dollars of speculation on Wall Street go without any sales tax, while you pay six, seven or eight percent sales tax on the necessities you buy in stores?

Let’s hear from you Tea Partiers. Meanwhile, see the work of video-journalist, Steve Ference, who has interviewed and given voice to those among you in his new paperback “Voices of the Tea Party” published by Lulu.com on July 4, 2010. Contact [email protected]

Global Warming Letter May Be A Martin Luther Moment In Scientific History

Source

Five centuries ago, a German priest challenged the reigning theological “consensus” about the clerical sale of indulgences, unraveling one of the great religious scams in history and inspiring the Protestant Reformation.

This month, a senior American physicist challenged the reigning scientific “consensus” about global warming. His action may prove to be the unraveling one of the great scientific mistakes in history and the beginning of a greatly needed reformation of the scientific community.

Revulsion over fraud

Just as Martin Luther paid the price for his dissent, Dr. Harold Lewis is experiencing a sharp backlash in the wake of his Oct. 6 resignation letter from the prestigious American Physical Society (APS). After 67 years as a member, Dr. Lewis – emeritus professor of physics and former department chairman at the University of California, Santa Barbara – parted ways because of his “revulsion” over the climate change “fraud” perpetrated by what he felt was science distorted by money.

Other esteemed scientists have in recent years put forward compelling critiques of the technical and scientific case for anthropogenic climate change. Dr. Lewis’s resignation letter is not such a critique. Rather, it is a condemnation of the way ideology, politics, and money have suppressed dissenting viewpoint and distorted the very nature of scientific inquiry. Like the so-called Climategate controversy, in which hacked emails from a group of climate scientists revealed political and personal factors influencing scientific work, Lewis’ letter lays bare the less-than-noble motivations that seem to be driving discussion of climate-change research today.

The APS position: ‘incontrovertible’

To understand Lewis’s letter, you first have to understand the APS position on climate change. The APS, like several other major scientific organizations, supports the theory of man-caused global warming. Its official statement from 2007 read, in part: “The evidence is incontrovertible: Global warming is occurring. If no mitigating actions are taken, significant disruptions in the Earth’s physical and ecological systems, social systems, security and human health are likely to occur. We must reduce emissions of greenhouse gases beginning now…. The APS also urges governments, universities, national laboratories and its membership to support policies and actions that will reduce the emission of greenhouse gases.”

This statement troubled Lewis deeply. These key excerpts from Lewis’s resignation letter explain why:

“[T]he money flood has become the raison d’être of much physics research, the vital sustenance of much more, and it provides the support for untold numbers of professional jobs. For reasons that will soon become clear my former pride at being an APS Fellow all these years has been turned into shame, and I am forced, with no pleasure at all, to offer you my resignation from the Society.

It is of course, the global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried APS before it like a rogue wave. It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist. Anyone who has the faintest doubt that this is so should force himself to read the ClimateGate documents, which lay it bare…. I don’t believe that any real physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion.

1. About a year ago a few of us sent an e-mail on the subject to a fraction of the membership. APS ignored the issues, but the then President immediately launched a hostile investigation of where we got the e-mail addresses. In its better days, APS used to encourage discussion of important issues, and indeed the Constitution cites that as its principal purpose. No more. Everything that has been done in the last year has been designed to silence debate

2. The appallingly tendentious APS statement on Climate Change was apparently written in a hurry by a few people over lunch, and is certainly not representative of the talents of APS members as I have long known them. So a few of us petitioned the Council to reconsider it. One of the outstanding marks of (in)distinction in the Statement was the poison word incontrovertible, which describes few items in physics, certainly not this one. In response APS appointed a secret committee that never met, never troubled to speak to any skeptics, yet endorsed the Statement in its entirety. (They did admit that the tone was a bit strong, but amazingly kept the poison word incontrovertible to describe the evidence, a position supported by no one.)…

3. In the interim the ClimateGate scandal broke into the news, and the machinations of the principal alarmists were revealed to the world. It was a fraud on a scale I have never seen, and I lack the words to describe its enormity. Effect on the APS position: none. None at all. This is not science; other forces are at work.

4. So a few of us tried to bring science into the act (that is, after all, the alleged and historic purpose of APS), and collected the necessary 200+ signatures to bring to the Council a proposal for a Topical Group on Climate Science, thinking that open discussion of the scientific issues, in the best tradition of physics, would be beneficial to all, and also a contribution to the nation….

5. To our amazement, Constitution be damned, you declined to accept our petition….

APS management has gamed the problem from the beginning, to suppress serious conversation about the merits of the climate change claims. Do you wonder that I have lost confidence in the organization?…

Some have held that the physicists of today are not as smart as they used to be, but I don’t think that is an issue. I think it is the money, exactly what Eisenhower warned about a half-century ago. There are indeed trillions of dollars involved, to say nothing of the fame and glory (and frequent trips to exotic islands) that go with being a member of the club…. As the old saying goes, you don’t have to be a weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing. Since I am no philosopher, I’m not going to explore at just which point enlightened self-interest crosses the line into corruption, but a careful reading of the ClimateGate releases makes it clear that this is not an academic question.

I want no part of it, so please accept my resignation. APS no longer represents me, but I hope we are still friends.

Hal

This is an important moment in science history. I would describe it as a letter on the scale of Martin Luther, nailing his 95 Theses to the Wittenburg church door.

Lewis is no lightweight

Most people don’t know who Lewis is. He’s a quiet man, and he hasn’t sought publicity in his career. He was a student of Robert Oppenheimer, “father” of the atomic bomb, and was active in the field of safety of nuclear power plants, where being wrong had grave consequences. He worked with (the late) noted climatologist Stephen Schneider when he chaired a 1985 task force on nuclear winter.

In short, he’s no lightweight, and he’s well respected in the field of physics.

Lewis and 260 other members of APS signed a petition, and battled within the organization, following the APS constitutional rules, in an attempt to get the APS position statement on global warming considered for revision. The effort was ignored, stonewalled, and rebuked. After years of trying, he finally had enough.

Lewis must have been wrestling with his conscience for a considerable time before concluding that resignation was his only option.

And like Luther, with all other options extinguished, he figuratively nailed his letter to the door of the organization that had become so entrenched in its own consensus that it couldn’t even address the concerns of its own members.

Luther’s brave act started the Reformation of the Catholic church. Lewis’s act could very well begin the reformation of climate science.

Fantastic Article About Edgar Steele In The Examiner

Click here to read the full article with links.

In a murder-for-hire, targeted Individual couple case involving the FBI, yesterday, the Court granted Cyndi Steele’s Motion to Vacate the No Contact Order in part, allowing her to see her husband, a rights defender exposing human trafficking, now in solitary confinement for state accused attempted murder of his wife with a WMD, a pipe-bomb. Some people, on both the left and right, view the case to be a Cointelpro operation to neutralize Steele, as his attorney recently alluded outside the courthouse, winning a round of applause.

Although stringent visitation conditions exist, Mrs. Steele is grateful for contact with her husband, Edgar Steele, about family business and for the isolation known to all Targeted Individuals, to be eased.

Mr. Steele, a First Amendment lawyer, is presently alone in a cell, without human contact except when allowed: 1) mail, restricted from regular mail privileges to post cards, most rejected and returned to sender; 2) visits from five people designated by Edgar, in a booth separating him, with communications with the visitor and audio/video device monitoring and recording; 3) telephone contact with a broader range of persons, only in 14 minute segments by collect calls, very expensive (part of the private contractor lucrative US prison industry); and 4) visits from his lawyer.

Repeatedly, Mrs. Steele has stated that she does not believe her husband was involved in a plot to kill her. (See press conference video aired on KREM below, Murder -for-hire suspects wife speaks publicly for first time today.) Mr. Steele has been exposing human trafficking, the illegal trade in human beings, mainly women and children for commercial sexual exploitation or forced labor: modern-day slavery. It is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world; tied with the illegal arms industry as second largest, after the drug-trade. (Wikipedia)

A U.S. Department of Justice July, 2008 study indicates that over 30 percent of all trafficking cases that year were children coerced into the sex industry. (http://content.news14.com/human_trafficking.pdf) United States State Department data estimates that 600,000 to 820,000 men, women, and children are trafficked across international borders annually, mainly for sexual exploitation; approximately 80% are women and girls; and up to 50 percent are minors.

Edgar Steele was on the verge of exposing the link used by Sovic money interests that steal thousands from older Americans drawn into the Russian Bride scam, Mr. Steele’s attorney, Mr. Wesley Hoyt told the writer, explaining that the Slovic block of mafia have perfected the art of slave trade to a new high-tech level.

“As soon as Ed, author of one book, Defensive Racism, said the word, there is a book in this bride scam business. He went from merely on the watch list, to being set up with a pipe bomb placed under his wife’s car by the handyman and then blamed, as if he was the mastermind in a plot to kill his wife and mother-in-law,” stated Hoyt.

According to James Buchanan on David Duke’s website, Steele had “planned to become more politically active – even running for political office.”

Isolation and death for exposing high-level corruption

Mr. Hoyt told the Examiner, “The problem is that there is no organization to help [Targeted Individuals] because people are afraid and silenced by these murderers, like Aaron Russeau, the movie producer of Freedom to Fascism who was killed by induced cancer.

“I read Heike Sura Painter’s letter, seeing how isolated she is and wishing I could help. Isolation is just exactly what the conspiracy wants,” stated Hoyt. (See: Dupre, D.,Let’s kill all the good guys – National Human Rights | Examiner.com Aug 29, 2010)

Painter is the Targeted Individual who wrote to President Obama requesting that he halt the widespread torture an assassination attacks on innocent listed people, offering to help him, and vowing to copy the letter to other nation’s leaders due to the extremist nature of the crime.

The two Idaho Targeted Individuals have been unable to speak to each other since June with one exception, a supervised visit in th presence of Mr. Steele’s attorney.

Hoyt told the human rights national news Examiner yesterday, “The point is that part of the KGB Playbook that the Government is following requires that the Targeted Individual be isolated, so that people cannot get their cards and letters through to bring him hope.”

Hoyt suggests that people who want to show support for Ed write to him c/o a designated recipient who can open the letters and “so that Cyndi can tell Ed about the volume of support and the outpouring of empathy from the outside world.

“Even though he cannot receive the letters himself, he will know that the world has not forgotten him. When I have spoken to him I have told him that his friends are still his friends and they still love him.”

Most women do not want to speak with the alleged perpetrator of crime against them. In the September 20, 2010 Press Conference, however, it is clear Mrs. Steele believes her husband is innocent and that he has been set-up.

Grateful to be alive

Outside the federal courthouse in Coeur d’Alene, in the press conference on Cyndi Steele and the pipe bomb discovered under her car June 15, 2010 at Fastlane Quick Lube, and in a prepared statement for her first public appearance since the bomb was found attached to the undercarriage of her car, she said she is grateful to be alive – despite the fact that Larry Fairfax, handyman turned pipe-bomber, tried to murder her and her mother.

Mrs. Steele said at the press conference, aired in full by KREM.com (video below), that the FBI told her there are accomplices of Mr. Fairfax who have not been arrested or charged with crimes and she is afraid the FBI is not doing its job, failing to apprehend these crimes.

All she wants is what all Targeted Individuals want: truth and encouraged unbiased journalism to vigorously investigate and report truth. Mrs. Steele asked if the media believes in presumption of innocence instead of convicting people like her husband, Edgar Steele in the Press before PROVEN guilty.

Ask the hard questions of both sides and do not demonize the accused until found guilty in a court of law or admitted guilt, she urged the press. Mrs. Steele said that Larry Fairfax is the one guilty and admitted his guilt in his Plea Bargain Agreement according to Steele, pointing to Fairfax’s guilt of attempted murder by his own admission and thus, he is the Idaho Pipe Bomber. She emphasized that Fairfax is a liar and thief and that her husband has never admitted guilt.

Steele said she is standing by her husband since she knows he is innocent and gives several reasons why provided by Hoyt:

a. Edgar Steele has proclaimed his innocence from the very beginning.
b. The government has NOT presented any proof of Steele’s guilt and evidence they did present, such as the tapes, is flawed and untrustworthy.
c. Evidence shows Fairfax is a thief, a liar and an attempted murderer.
d. Fairfax was in deep financial trouble in May, having just declared bankruptcy earlier this year. He had told Mrs. Steele that he was losing equipment needed in his business and was about to lose his house;
e. Mr. Fairfax told Mrs. Steele and her husband how desperately he needed money, one reason they continued to give him work;
f. On Nov. 21, 2009 Edgar Steele almost died from an aortic aneurysm, only by one of God’s miracles that he lived. Over the next six months he had three other surgeries, the last of which was a nose aneurysm that threatened his life, again requiring another emergency surgery in May 2010.
g. The pipes froze in her family home this past winter and Mr. Fairfax came into their lives as “Larry the Plumber” to fix the pipes. In a weakened state, Mr. Steele became increasingly more reliant upon Mr. Fairfax to help fix other things at the Steele property. Mr. Fairfax became aware that the Steeles were using their out buildings as a place for safe keeping of their silver coins.
h. Because of Edgar Steele’s weakened condition, Mr. Fairfax was able to steal $45,000 worth of silver coins from the Steeles. [Targeted Individuals have reported their perpetrator manipulates the situation so that the target become dependent on them, as a tortured victim is of his torturer.]
i. As Mr. Fairfax cashed in those silver coins, he became scared that Mr. Steele would catch him.
j. Mr. Fairfax had a motive to scheme the murder-for-hire plot. By alerting the FBI of the plot, he could cover up his crime, making it appear he was helping the FBI solve a much more serious crime.
k. Mr. Fairfax had been a DEA informant and had contacts in the government.
l. The FBI saw opportunity to concoct a story to implicate Edgar because he has been so outspoken and effective in representing the politically incorrect.
m. At Mr. Fairfax’s Detention Hearing on June 20, 2010, it was said that Magistrate Candy Dale made a finding that he wasn’t “…completely forthcoming in his dealings with law enforcement and has subjected people to danger and can’t be trusted to be released.”
n. Mrs. Steele says that it is an outrage that the authorities continue to believe anything Mr. Fairfax has to say, especially since the most critical information he was covering up was placing a pipe-bomb on her car in his attempt to murder her and her mother.
o. Mr. Fairfax continues to lie by claiming he “…made the bomb in a way that it wouldn’t detonate.” It was lethal, however, as stated by C. Todd Smith, a BATF&E agent, and the Coeur d’Alene Police Bomb Squad blew it up.

Mrs. Steele said:

“I don’t get how the authorities can continue to claim Mr. Fairfax was out to save my life. When is placing a lethal bomb on someone’s car, for any reason, being out to save a life? No, this is attempted murder and the government has failed to charge him with attempted murder.

“I still shake in fear when I think about the devastation that could have been caused if that bomb exploded. Not only to me and my mom, but to other family members, including my 2 year old granddaughter, our friends, and every person who was near my car as I drove through Oregon, Washington and Idaho in June.

“I still fear for our lives because Mr. Fairfax, as stated in his Plea Agreement, had an accomplice who went from Idaho to Oregon with him to check on the bomb under my car on May 31st; and the government still has not arrested or charged that person.

“Why was this other person, not Larry, the one who looked under my car for the bomb? Mr. Fairfax is the one who attached the bomb and would have known where to look.

“Why is the government relying on unreliable hearsay from this other person when it is coming through Larry Fairfax who has proven himself to be a liar?”

Mrs. Steele pointed out that Mr. Fairfax states in his Plea Agreement that he and this other person together, as co-conspirators, made a decision to assume that the bomb had fallen off of her car and said, “You would think they wouldn’t have just assumed, but rather they would have made certain that the bomb was off my car if they wanted to then save lives?”

“Did you get that? They decided that this lethal weapon of mass destruction was lying on the ground somewhere between Sagle, Idaho and Portland, Oregon, and the FBI did nothing about that.”

Mrs. Steele encouraged the media and investigative reporters to answer the question: Who is this person that went with Mr. Fairfax on May 31st to check on the bomb?

“Why hasn’t he been arrested and charged? Why is he still at large and allowed to be a danger to people?”

Due to an indication that the government knows identity of this person, Mrs. Steele wants media to ask the government the following two questions:

Why hasn’t government charged this other person as a co-conspirator since he/she helped Mr. Fairfax advance the criminal enterprise?
Why hasn’t government arrested this person as a co-conspirator since he knows how to handle bombs, willingly participated in a scheme that involved attaching a bomb under a car, knew about the bomb on Mrs. Steele’s car in May and is a danger to the public?

Mrs. Steele pointed out that none of these issues have been addressed by the FBI and, in fact, the FBI has completely ignored the public safety aspect of this case.

“Obviously, this co-conspirator was a part of the plot to murder me, which was also designed to do harm to the public — what am I missing?”

Mrs. Steele pointed out that the bomb manufactured by Mr. Fairfax and placed under her vehicle could have blown up anyone, even the reporters at the Press Conference and their families.

“As if this isn’t bad enough, there is more. The FBI also identified two other accomplices to Mr. Fairfax who they said wanted to run me and my mother off the road.”

“When the FBI first approached me on June 11, 2010 as we were at my mother’s house near Portland, they, the two FBI agents, said nothing about a bomb under my car.”

The two FBI agents said some people wanted to kill Mrs. Steele and her mother in a tactic consistently reported by Targeted Individuals, by running them “off the road.”

“Why aren’t those two co-conspirators being prosecuted by the government?”

“Doesn’t anyone of you want to ask the government why those two people are not in jail right now under charges of attempted murder? And why are they still at large where they present a clear danger to our community?“

Call for media and reporters to look for real culprits

Mrs Steele challenged reporters to ask the U.S. Prosecutor and FBI: “What does it take to get you to do your job?”

Addressing charges against her husband, Mrs. Steele said, “I told you that I would explain why I believe my did not participate in any murder-for-hire plots… that is because I know Edgar Steele better than anyone. I have been married to Ed over 25 years and we have had a long, loving, bonded and mutually inter-dependent relationship.

“I know what he is capable of– I also know what he is not capable of and he is not capable of planning to murder anyone. He would lay down his own life before allowing anyone to harm me and/or his mother-in-law.
“In fact, the idea that Ed would have a bomb attached to my car is totally ridiculous and preposterous because he loves his family deeply and would be devastated if anything happened to his children, grandchild, me or my mom.
“I do not understand how anyone could think that he would harm his grandchild?
“As an honorable man and a First Amendment Lawyer, he has spent his life solving crimes, issues, conflicts and peacefully seeking change through the legal system.
“Never has he been violent or advocated for violence.
“He has no time, no patience for, and certainly no interest in murdering anyone or committing any other crimes, for that matter.
“Now I ask you, how a person who refers to me as “His Rock” and whose favorite expression is: Equal rights for all and special rights for none would somehow have a reason to plot this murder-for-hire against me?
“It just does not add up that Ed Steele would be involved, but it does add up that Larry Fairfax, who introduced the idea of hiring a hit man out of the blue in their conversations about handyman things around the property, would do something like this and point the finger at my husband.

As reporters continued to question authenticity of Mrs. Steele’s statements, she told them, “Let’s look for the real culprit”:

“How about the person who is financially desperate, and who just stole $45,000 that he might want to cover up –would he have a motive to make up such a plot?

“As the Media, you should be very suspicious of the government’s accusations against my husband or anyone for that matter, when they present the real culprit as a person they want to protect with an 18-month Plea Agreement.

“As the Media, you need to ask, ‘Why would the government want to participate in a plot to blame Edgar Steele for something he did not do?’

“Then notice how the government’s story keeps changing: First they claimed that my husband’s motive was life insurance on me and my mother, but they could not find a life insurance policy — because none existed. Then they changed their story about the motive two more times after that and it still doesn’t hold up, because Ed has no motive to kill me or his mother-in-law.

“Look, my mom’s health has been pretty bad the last few years and because she can’t work full time, her house was going into foreclosure this spring. Ed, on his own, paid $3,000 to my mother’s mortgage company to avoid foreclosure this spring, so that she could have a “short sale” and still live in her own home until her house was sold and, hopefully, to give her more time to recover before having to move.

“This was Ed’s idea, not mine, because he is a man of charity, integrity and conviction. Ed has great respect for my mother, who now is so sick, she has faced multiple surgeries. My mother needs my help and I, as her only child, am a central part of her health care team.”

According to the attorney Wesley Hoyt, with a long history of defending Targeted Individuals, the press conference was to inform media that everything presented in the prepared statement by Mrs. Steele are reasons she objects to the pending Plea Agreement offered to Larry Fairfax. Hoyt submitted the following key objections in a written statement to the Examiner:

a. Manufacturing a firearm, rather than an aggravated offense. Judge Dale pointed out that Mr. Fairfax was accused of crimes of violence.
b. The present deal includes a probable 18 months of confinement, an outrageously “soft plea” bargain for a man who admits he attempted to murder her and her mother.
c. Mr. Fairfax is a proven liar who was not honest or forthcoming on June 8th about the bomb under her car. He held secret that fact for seven days, until after the bomb was discovered on June 15th during an oil change.
d. He is a thief and an admitted attempted murderer, so why is he being given a soft plea deal?
e. He is not the one who notified the authorities about the Weapon of Mass Destruction under her car. It was Josh Young of Fast Lane Quick Lube who did that.
f. He hasn’t been charged with attempted murder, possession of an explosive device in a crime of violence or theft of the $45,000 in silver coins;
g. The Government isn’t doing anything to make him pay restitution, even though he got the silver and cashed a lot of it in.
h. Mrs. Steele asks: “Is this the government’s way of paying off their Confidential Informant? By not charging him with theft so he can keep our money?”
i. And worse yet, is another pay off not charging him with attempted murder?
j. And, don’t forget: There are more Fairfax accomplices out there who haven’t been identified by the FBI or arrested and charged. If Mr. Fairfax gets off easy, these accomplices will be allowed to get off scott-free for their crimes.

Mrs. Steele stated:

“I don’t and never will feel safe until the FBI catches the entire Fairfax Gang and the public won’t be safe either. The Media should be asking the government the hard questions about capturing these bad guys. Please understand that I will continue to object to any Plea Agreement, especially a plea bargain that has no teeth, until the other three co-conspirators are brought to justice and Mr. Fairfax has been charged with the real crimes he committed: Attempted murder and Theft.

“Meanwhile, my mother and I, and the rest of my family are scared to death that someone really is going to kill us; if not with a bomb or by running us off the road, then by some other fashion. This should even scare you, because if they were willing to use a Weapon of Mass Destruction once on a couple of innocent old ladies, they are obviously ruthless killers who will do it again and the next time it could be in your neighborhood – And the FBI doesn’t seem to want to be accountable.

“My mother now is critically ill – This fictional drama about her son-in-law plotting to murder her and her daughter and the reality of Mr. Fairfax getting out in only 18 months and the other accomplices still at large are only making her health worse!

“You, as the media, need to help investigate, ask the tough questions and demand that the government does their job – so that the true criminals are convicted and all of us are truly SAFE!

“Once again, let me stress: The idea that Ed had put out a contract to kill my mother and me is ABSOLUTELY preposterous!

In a final statement, Mrs. Steele thanked Josh Young and his co-workers who discovered the bomb when she brought her car in for an oil change, and for calling the police. She thanked the Bomb Squad for risking their lives to remove the bomb from under her car.

“I also, want to apologize to all the businesses and travelers along Hwy 95, while they closed down everything around the location of the Fastlane Quick Lube because my car was there with a bomb under it. I realize that this was an inconvenience for everyone and a financial strain on their businesses.

“I’m just glad that we are all still alive.”
