Aerial imaging technology is being used by the government to spy on Americans in an effort to collect revenue and enforce ordinances on swimming pools without safety certificates, junk cars being stored without permission, unlicensed porches, and a myriad of other petty transgressions that the state is feeding off in complete violation of the Fourth Amendment to suck citizens dry of whatever income they have left after being looted of trillions of dollars in wealth that the state has transferred to foreign banks.

An Internet kill switch bill that would give President Obama the power to shut down parts of the world wide web for a period of at least four months without congressional oversight has moved closer to a Senate vote, with one of its primary advocates, Democratic co-chairman of the House Cybersecurity Caucus Jim Langevin, threatening a “cyber-9/11″ if the legislation is not quickly passed.

Operation Gladio
Originally aired on BBC2 in 1992, 'Operation Gladio' reveals 'Gladio', the secret state-sponsored terror network operating in Europe.
This BBC series is about a far-right secret army, operated by the CIA and MI6 through NATO, which killed hundreds of innocent Europeans and attempted to blame the deaths on Baader Meinhof, Red Brigades and other left wing groups. Known as 'stay-behinds' these armies were given access to military equipment which was supposed to be used for sabotage after a Soviet invasion. Instead it was used in massacres across mainland Europe as part of a CIA Strategy of Tension. Gladio killing sprees in Belgium and Italy were carried out for the purpose of frightening the national political classes into adopting U.S. policies.

ObamaCo 'going over' like a lead balloon?'s Jane Hamsher
on Dem. Reaction to Robert Gibbs' "Professional Left" Comments
Gibbs needs drug test, not "professional left"
John Pilger -  Obama Is A Corporate Marketing Creation
Wave Goodbye To Brand Obama
Paul Joseph Watson
August 11, 2010

Administration spokesman Robert Gibbs' angry retort that left-wing critics
of President Obama ought to be "drug tested" because they are "crazy" marks
a crucial benchmark in the accelerating evisceration of Obama's public
support, even amongst liberals who, having exalted Obama as some kind of
savior, are now realizing that he is merely a servant to the banking elite.

Gibbs' meltdown occurred during an interview with The Hill newspaper, in
which he slammed the "professional left" for criticizing Obama for failing
to live up to his ideological promises.

"I hear these people saying he's like George Bush. Those people ought to be
drug tested," Gibbs said. "I mean, it's crazy."

While some of the criticism coming from the left is undoubtedly over
side-issues like gay marriage or gays in the military, much of it centers
around Obama's continuation and indeed intensification of the wars in Iraq
and Afghanistan, as well as his failure to close Guantanamo Bay, in addition
to his cosying up to Wall Street while abandoning Main Street as the
economic decline worsens.

Sunday Aug 22 2PM San Francisco Mime Troupe presents POSIBILIDAD Washington Square Park, SF Colombus at Washington

Sun Aug 22 2pm-5pm National Go Topless Day Justin Herman Plaza Market @ Embarcadero SF
National Go Topless Day in honor of 19th Amendment and birth of Women's Equality Day
Maitreya, Rael, spiritual leader and founder of states: "as long as men can be topless, constitutionally women should have the same right, or men should also be forced to wear something hiding their chest."
Gather with us in protest of the inequality of toplessness! Women are encouraged to participate by being topless and men are encouraged to participate by wearing bras, pasties, nipple tape, etc. There will be music, dancing, and, of course, toplessness in abundance!
To read to whole spiel:
If you would like to volunteer in some capacity, please email [at]

In San Francisco, we have the unique opportunity to celebrate the fact that it is indeed legal for women to be topless.
On Sunday, August 22nd at 2pm, GoTopless will be held in Justin Herman Plaza, SF, where we’ll be gathering to protest, celebrate
and dance in toplessness to great music provided by Aharon Bolsta and friends (! 
And feel free to bring sign-making supplies so we can create beautiful signs to communicate our message!
August 22nd, National Go Topless Day, is about EQUALITY. In the vast majority of our country, women can't go topless and men can go topless.
This effectively sexualizes women's breasts and puts us at odds with the supposed equality of the sexes. Women's breasts have been made into sexual objects when they are in actuality functional organs.
Over sexualizing women disempowers them in the workplace as they are seen as objects and not appreciated for their knowledge and skills. This is one of many steps that we can take to have true equality among us all.
In order to expose this disparity of inequality, we encourage women be topless and men to wear bikinis, bras, nipple tape, etc. in solidarity of equal rights. In this demonstration, both women and men have a crucial part to play!
Justin Herman plaza is the spacious grassy area at the foot of Market Street and directly across from the San Francisco Ferry Building. If you must drive, there are parking garages at Embarcadero Center, and at various locations South of Market. Justin Herman Plaza is very easily accessible via the Embarcadero BART/MUNI station. Get up to street level, head East - in the direction of the Ferry Building, and look for the topless women. :)
Here's the facebook event page with more information on it:
In the meantime, please don't forget to sign the petition and to pass it on to your friends!

? Why am I listing this event? because A 100 year old GOLD US $20 1oz coin from 1910 now sells for $1200-2000. That's how weak the US dollar has gotten.
An ounce of gold cost $20 US 100 years ago. Today an ounce of gold costs $1200. Gold has had the same value for 100 years. 1 oz of gold buys you 10 barrels of OIL.
The dollar has declined, very badly in the last 100 years. It now takes 60 x as many dollars to buy an ounce of gold as it did 100 years ago.
GET OUT OF THE DOLLAR BEFORE IT COLLAPSES. Get yourself onto land with water where you can grow food.

See David Icke at the Marin Center Saturday, October 23rd 2010 San Rafael, CA
David Icke marks his 20th year of uncovering astounding secrets and suppressed information with a major all-day event in Marin on October 23rd and the publication of his most amazing book yet. He will take the manipulation of the human race and the nature of reality to still new levels of understanding and he calls for humanity to rise from its knees and take back the world from the sinister network of families and non-human entities that covertly control us from cradle to grave. David has moved the global cutting edge so many times since his incredible ‘awakening’ in 1990 and in San Francisco he will do it again – and then some.
What is reality? Who really controls world events? Who are we? Political Manipulation
Where are we? The Reptilian Agenda How is reality manipulated? The Global Awakening
Learn who really controls world events, political manipulation, The Moon Matrix, 9/11, and the secret world agenda for the future. His events have sold out world wide.

33 Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out To Be True, What Every Person Should Know...

"In Germany back in 1923, a man put all the money he had into a wheelbarrow and headed to the store to buy a loaf of bread. But when he got there, the store was closed. He left his wheelbarrow outside the door, figuring he'd come back when the store opened, knowing the money in it wasn't worth enough for anyone to bother stealing. He was right. When he came back, all the money was still there, dumped on the ground, but someone had stolen his wheelbarrow."

Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long after-wards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily. No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.

GUN CONTROL WORKS ask the experts: Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, Kim Jong-il, Qaddafi The 2nd Amendment
Washington didn't use his right to free speech to defeat the British, he shot them.
Most often when a government takes a peoples guns, it then takes their land or their lives.
