What's going on in America today?
Why are we over our heads in debt?
Why can't the politicians bring debt under control?
Why are so many people - often both parents now
working at low-paying, dead-end jobs and still making do with less?
What's the future of the American economy and way of life?
Why does the government tell us inflation is low when the buying power of our paychecks
is declining at an alarming rate?
Only a generation ago, bread was a quarter and you could get a new car for $1,995!
The problem is that since 1864 we’ve had a debt-based banking system.
All our money is based on government debt.
We cannot extinguish government debt without extinguishing our money supply.
That’s why talk of paying off the national debt, without reforming our banking system, is an impossibility.
That’s why the solution does not lie in discussing the size of national debt rather than lies in reforming our banking system.
The Federal Reserve headquarters in Washington, D.C.
It sits on a very impressive address right on Constitution Avenue, right across from the Lincoln Memorial.
But is it "Federal"?
Is it really part of the United States government?
Well, what we are about to show you is that there is nothing federal about the Fed Reserve, and there are no reserves.
The name is a deception created back before the Fed Reserve Act was passed in 1913 to make Americans think that America's new central bank operates in the public interest.
The truth is that the Fed is a private bank, owned by private stockholders, and run purely for their private profit.
Fed is privately-owned, for-profit corporation which has no reserves, at least no reserve to back up the Federal Reserve notes which are our common currency.
The Fed is neither federal and has doubtful reserves.
It’ a private bank that is owned by member banks and it was chartered under the guys of the seat by an act of congress in 1913.
If there's still any doubt whether the Federal Reserve is a part of the U.S. government, check your local telephone book.
In most cities, it's not listed in the blue "government pages."
It is listed in the "business" white pages, right next to Federal Express, another private company.
But more directly, U.S. Courts have ruled time and time again that the Fed is a private corporation.
Why can't Congress do something about the Fed?
Most members of Congress just don't understand the system, and the few who do are afraid to speak up.
For example, initially a veteran Congressman from Chicago asked us if he could be interviewed However, both times our camera crew arrived at his office to do the interview.
The Congressman never appeared, and eventually he decided he no longer wanted to participate.
But a few others in Congress have been bolder over the years.
Here are three quick examples.
In 1923, Representative Charles A. Lindbergh, a Republican from Minnesota, the father of famed aviator, "Lucky" Lindy, put it this way:
The Financial System ... Has been turned over to ... the federal reserve board. That board administers the finance system by authority of ... a purely profiteering group. The system is private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people`s money.
One of the most outspoken critics in Congress of the Fed was the former Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee during the Great Depression years, Louis T. McFadden said in 1932:
We have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board ... this evil institution has impoverished ... the people of the United States ... and has practically bankrupted our Government. it has done this trough ... the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.
Senator Barry Goldwater was a frequent critic of the Fed:
Most Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international moneylenders ... The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited. It operates outside the control of congress and ... manipulates the credit of the United States.
This is just tip of the Ice! Like Alex Jones tells us, is to DO OUR OWN RESEARCH! ...
Morons! all over this forum so freaking scared! bashing and calling names like small tiny KIDS with no CRITICAL thinking and researching...
How is this world going to be a better place when stupid jackasses like many of you are lurking around..

Yep, he is talking about many here and you had better hope he and me and those like us are wrong.
CIA reports, doctors and biographers have asserted that bin Laden had (has) a range of diseases from typhoid to renal disease, Addison’s disease, secondary osteoporosis and Marfan syndrome. Intelligence agencies think that in 2000, he had kidney-dialysis devices shipped to him in Afghanistan. His 1987 biography states that bin Laden was being treated with insulin for diabetes and suffered serious low blood pressure. Is it likely that the most wanted man in the world has been regularly receiving medical attention without detection for the past 10 years?
In 2008, former CIA case officer Robert Baer asserted, “Of course he’s dead.” In 2002 and 2009, Pakistani Presidents Pervez Musharraf and Asif Ali Zardari separately stated that bin Laden was dead. In 2002, FBI counterterrorism chief Dale Watson stated that bin Laden “probably” was dead.
Osama bin Laden and his deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri are believed to be hiding close to each other in houses in northwest Pakistan, but are not together, a senior NATO official said.
"Nobody in al Qaeda is living in a cave," said the official, who declined to be named because of the sensitivity of the intelligence matters involved.
Rather, al Qaeda's top leadership is believed to be living in relative comfort, protected by locals and some members of the Pakistani intelligence services, the official said.
''For some, the thirst for power takes on the character of an addiction,'' said Steve R. Pieczenik, a psychiatrist who has also been a Deputy Assistant Secretary of State. ''Many of my patients have been power brokers of one kind or another: lobbyists, politicians, lawyers. These people are incessantly building a power base, forming alliances, typically with no specific goal in mind; they just enjoy the hurly-burly of power for its own sake.''

Why was the tail section of the helicopter left in OBL's compound?
1. Who shot it down?
Abbottābad, Pakistan | Near Bilel Town The SEALs stormed the compound at approximately 1:00 am local time (8:00 pm, May 1 UTC) and engaged bin Laden's men in a firefight. Two helicopters carrying the primary assault team hovered over the compound and the SEALs fast-roped to the ground. One of the helicopters stalled, perhaps from its own prop wash, and was forced to make an emergency landing in the compound. The compound's guards opened fire as the SEALS, none of whom were seriously injured in the assault, attacked the compound's structures.
2. Where is the rest of the helicopter? Can it fly without the tail section?
It’s not uncommon for U.S. military forces to destroy an aircraft downed in a foreign land, but U.S. Special Forces had particular cause to blow up the ill-fated helo that participated in Sunday’s raid on Osama Bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan. Apparently, it was a secret stealth helicopter, the design of which U.S. military commanders would not be keen to share with the Pakistanis or anyone else.
3. If the helicopter can not fly without the tail section, then how did the SEALs get out of the compound?
Jalalabad, Afghanistan ABC New reports that, according to an anonymous U.S. official, a pair of helicopters carrying Navy SEAL Team 6 left Jalalabad in eastern Afghanistan in the early morning hours of May 2. The choppers entered Pakistani airspace using sophisticated technology intended to evade that country's radar systems. (ABC News)
Tarbela Ghazi Air Base, Pakistan (12:15 am) From Tarbela Ghazi Air Base in Pakistan (which the CIA has Pakistani government permission to use), several modified UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters made their way to the garrison suburb of Abbottabad, about 30 miles from the center of Islamabad. Aboard were Navy SEALs, flown across the border from Afghanistan, along with tactical signals, intelligence collectors, and navigators using highly classified hyperspectral imagers. (National Journal)
The helicopter which had made the emergency landing was damaged and could not fly the team out. It was consequently destroyed to safeguard its classified equipment. The SEAL team helicopters were supported by multiple other aircraft, including fixed-wing fighter jets and drones. Per CNN, The Air Force also had a full team of combat search-and-rescue helicopters including MH-53 Pave Low and HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopters
4. Why is there barely any damage to the tail section? The only noticeable damage is at the top part (in pictures of it), which would have been where it is connected to the rest of the helicopter.

Thanks for answering some of my questions. You still did not answer my last question. You also raised four new questions.
1. Why aren't there any pictures of the destroyed helicopter that they intentionally blew up?
2. Why would they forget to destroy the tail section?
3. Why is the tail section propped up on the wall? It seems like a very odd way for a tail section to land.
4. If the helicopter did stall and they made an emergency landing, then why would the helicopter have been damaged in the way it did? I am not an expert on helicopter crashes, but it seems to defy physics and logic the way that helicopter landed and was damaged.edit on 5-5-2011 by Rhino5 because: (no reason given)
we just are cautiously skeptical on everything we hear.
Alex has been wrong on everything I have heard him claim for 11 years and counting now. He has been doing it longer than that. How long should I wait before giving up on him?
